Bethenny Frankel is not writing a tell-all about the cast of “The Real Housewives of New York City,” despite a new tabloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We’re told it’s “definitely not true.”

According to the latest issue of In Touch, Frankel has “a lot of dirt” on the other women in the Bravo series, and so she’s “penning a tell-all book.” What’s worse, says the magazine, is “no one is safe.” A so-called “insider” tells the tabloid, “Bethenny promised her publisher she wouldn’t hold back.”

Those slated to get hit the worst on Frankel’s “dirt laundry list,” asserts the outlet, are Sonja Morgan, Dorinda Medley, and Luann de Lesseps. Specifically, the publication alleges the Skinnygirl creator is going to go after their “drinking issues.” Frankel, says the magazine’s supposed source, will “reveal the truth about their boozing.”

The tabloid maintains the book will also touch on Frankel’s “nasty feud with Carole Radziwell,” who will be the subject of her very own chapter. “Bethenny will reveal how they went from besties to mortal enemies.” It seems much of that was already aired during the season 10 reunion show last month, during which and even after on social media the two women traded barbs. For her part, Radziwell said her friendship with Frankel ended after watching that last “RHONY” episode when the cocktail mogul said of her one-time pal, “Carole isn’t married, doesn’t have kids, and doesn’t have a career,” and was only concerned with her looks.

Regardless of the back-and-forth between the two women, and the other flareups among cast members, Frankel is not looking to do an expose about the “Real Housewives.” A rep, who can speak on behalf of Frankel, tells Gossip Cop the tabloid’s claim is “definitely not true.” While Frankel has already written a novel and a number of other self-help books, including Naturally Thin: Unleash Your SkinnyGirl and Free Yourself from a Lifetime of Dieting and A Place of Yes: 10 Rules for Getting Everything You Want Out of Life, a tell-all is not in the works.

Just a couple of weeks ago In Touch’s sister publication, the National Enquirer, published a story that claimed Frankel and Ellen DeGeneres are no longer friends after the cancellation of the Skinnygirl founder’s talk show, which the latter produced. That, too, was inaccurate. Significantly, while the tabloids hide behind unnamed and possibly made-up sources, who have no accountability whatsoever, Frankel’s spokesperson has made a point of going on the record with Gossip Cop to correct falsehoods, including the latest about her “penning a tell-all book.”
