Bethenny Frankel Slams Kelly Rowland for ‘Diva Expectations’ After ‘Today’ Drama

After the recent drama with Kelly Rowland pulling out of her appearance on Today due to dressing room issues, Bethenny Frankel didn’t waste any time sharing her thoughts. As we previously reported, Rowland was scheduled to appear on the show to discuss her new film Mea Culpa. However, just before her scheduled time slot, she unexpectedly left.

According to a source, Rowland and her team were unhappy with the dressing room assigned to her and decided to pull out of the show, leaving the hosts without a guest for the 10 a.m. hour. They had requested to switch to a different dressing room, but were dissatisfied with the options offered by the show.

Upon hearing about the incident, Bethenny Frankel took to social media to criticize Rowland for her “diva expectations.” Frankel, who has co-hosted with Hoda Kotb on Today, talked about her own experiences with less-than-glamorous dressing rooms and small makeup areas. She emphasized that being a co-host on Today is an honor and not about fancy dressing rooms.

Bethenny Frankel added that the moment on Today was not the appropriate time for Rowland’s diva expectations. She acknowledged that the makeup area is communal and the food isn’t great, but being on Today should be seen as a privilege.

After Rowland’s departure, Rita Ora stepped in as a last-minute host. Ora expressed her surprise and gratitude for the opportunity to co-host the show on Instagram.

It’s important to remember that being a part of a renowned entertainment institution like Today should be appreciated and cherished, rather than focusing on personal preferences for dressing rooms.
