Bethenny Frankel responded after Ed Kelce called her out for being a "troll" when talking about his son Travis Kelce's relationship with Taylor Swift.

“I do actually understand and admire a parent coming to their child’s defense, particularly when they’re asked about it,” the 53-year-old reality said on the Monday, February 26, episode of her “Just B” podcast. “I just wish he would’ve expressed an opinion versus just a verbal insult. As we teach our kids, it’s better to express ourselves than just criticize.”

“When you get into real life and you get into kids and marriage and things like that… it’s not easy [and] relationships take work. And it’s hard, because Taylor Swift is certainly a peacock. So they’re really usually can only be one peacock in a relationship,” she said.

“I was saying, usually there’s only one peacock in a relationship," she said, adding that it's someone who is "very over the top and loud." “I stand by that. I think that’s who Travis is."

“I did not mention [Travis] pushing his coach, which is a physical expression versus using your words and having a conversation. Which is kind of like what his dad did. He used an insult instead of using his intellect," she added, referring to when the athlete yelled at his coach Andy Reid during the 2024 Super Bowl.

The Real Housewives of New York alum then said it was "a little absurd" for Ed to get involved, but agreed it made for a good story.

“Sorry not sorry," she quipped. “I literally think he’s a peacock and there are two peacocks in this relationship and it usually doesn’t work. I’m allowed to think that. I don’t have to think they’re getting married and spending their lives together. I hope that they do if that’s what they want.”
