Bethenny Frankel has some harsh words for Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy.
Portnoy, 46, called the Vanderpump Rules star Raquel Leviss, 29, ‘a trash bag’ when reports surfaced that the two were linked romantically while they were both spotted in at the same coffee shop in he small town of Cary, Illinois.
‘I can confirm I’ve never met that trash bag in my life and it’s wildly insulting to even be mentioned in the same sentence as her,’ Portnoy wrote on Twitter on November 24.
The Real Housewives of New York City alum, 53, texted him afterward and asked him to apologize, per Page Six.
But Portnoy doesn’t see why he should have to apologize, saying on his BFF’s podcast Wednesday, ‘Why? What did I say about her that nobody has said a million times?’
Bethenny Frankel asked for an apology from Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy after he called Vanderpump Rules star Rachel Leviss , 29, ‘a trash bag’
Last week reported surfaced that suggested the two were linked romantically while they were both spotted at the same coffee shop in the small town of Cary, Illinois
‘I can confirm I’ve never met that trash bag in my life and it’s wildly insulting to even be mentioned in the same sentence as her,’ Portnoy wrote on Twitter on November 24 in response to a request from Page Six
Based on the tone he used on his podcast, it seems unlikely that he apologized to either Leviss or Frankel.
The rumor about the social media entrepreneur who refers to himself as ‘El Presidente’ and the former beauty queen surfaced after it was confirmed that Portnoy had split from girlfriend Silvana Mojica after two years of dating.
‘It’s kinda wild when I just had a breakup, which is hard enough to go through without hearing I f**ked that lady [Leviss],’ he told Page Six.
He also offered an alibi for the time he reportedly would have connected with Leviss to Page Six and shared an image of it on Instagram, writing: ‘I was eating pizza at Uncle Jerry’s [Pizza Company] though, which was spectacular by the way and got an 8.3.’
Portnoy is on a quest to try every pizza place in the U.S. and gives ‘one bite’ reviews of each restaurant.
Leviss has been largely out of the spotlight since the news broke that she was having an affair with Tom Sandoval, 40, behind the back of his girlfriend of nine years, Ariana Madix, 38.
Following the scandal, dubbed ‘Scandoval,’ she opted not to continue the show after completing a stint in a mental health facility.
Now, the former beauty queen isn’t on speaking terms with any of the cast.
Portnoy doesn’t see why he should have to apologize, saying on his BFF’s podcast Wednesday, ‘Why? What did I say about her that nobody has said a million times?’
Last month, Rachel revealed she told some ‘triggering’ items from Sandoval and raised $14,800 to donate to the National Alliance of Mental Illness.
The reality TV personality made $5,300 for a lightning bolt necklace, and $9,500 for the two hoodies, for a total of $14,800, her rep told People.
Leviss had worn the infamous lightning bolt necklace amid her months-long affair with Sandoval last year.
While discussing the mementos that she listed on eBay, the TV personality confessed that she never wants to ‘see them’ or ‘wear them again.’
