Round Two! Bethenny Frankel and her mother have been slamming each other in the media for the last several days. Now, Bethenny’s mom is targeting her daughter’s marriage and hinting at infidelity!

Even though Bethenny Frankel has had zero contact with her mother, Bernadette Burke, in recent years, it hasn’t kept her from publicly criticizing her daughter’s marriage — and implying that she’s going to cheat on her husband, Jason Hoppy! “His problem is he’s too nice, and she’ll grab another nice one, he is replaceable,” Bernadette said in a interview with RadarOnline. “Nice is boring and Bethenny gets bored with nice. I know she is bored because I get bored watching him.”

During the second season of Bethenny Ever After, the 41-year-old Skinnygirl creator has been more open about her relationship struggles. In last week’s episode, Bethenny and Jason received a counseling session aboard a boat. “We’re off course,” Bethenny revealed. “That’s what we’re doing in our lives: we keep having the same argument over and over again.”

Even though Bethenny and Jason sought professional help to resolve their marriage problems, Bernadette is not convinced that the relationship will last.” She doesn’t have any respect for marriage because she has never seen good marriages,” Bernadette explains. “She cheated on her first husband after her first couple of months of marriage.”

“She would never have married Jason but she wanted to have a child and the timing was right. She got what she wanted out of this, she married because of public opinion.”

Sadly, the scathing insults didn’t stop there. Bernadette also attacked Bethenny’s parenting skills, claiming that “she has always hired people to take care of the baby, she doesn’t take care of that child, she does photo shoots.”

Never one to back away from conflict, Bethenny is set to confront Bernadette in an upcoming episode of Bethenny Ever After in which she will viciously state that she “hates her!”

Do you think Bethenny’s mom has a right to voice her opinion or should she just keep quiet? Sound off below!
