“How could I set up a photo? Am I in a movie I’m casting?" the 50-year-old added. "Like, ‘Hey Tom D’Agostino, I’d like to cast you in the role as cheater at the Regency Hotel’?”

Frankel continued to back up her point by telling her listeners that she "never" goes to Uptown Manhattan — where the infamous hotel is located and where the headline making picture was taken.

“So in this case, I’m a casting director that called Tom D’Agostino — who I don’t f–king know — to say, ‘Listen, I know it sounds weird, I just want you to be in a bar and make out with somebody, because I have a photographer who’s going to be standing by to take a picture," the veteran Bravo star explained. "Then I’m going to give it to everyone on the show.'”
