AceShowbiz - Bethenny Frankel has joined the latest narrative about Jonah Hill. The reality TV star has blasted the actor as a "low-grade d**k" as she recalled her meeting with him in the wake of his ex-girlfriend abuse allegation.
The former "The Real Housewives of New York City" star claimed Jonah left bad impression when they were both invited as guests on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno", which ended its run in 2014. She said that the way the "21 Jump Street" star treated her made her feel "like a loser."
"I did 'The Tonight Show with Jay Leno' and Jonah Hill was the first guest," Bethenny said in a TikTok video posted on Monday, July 10. "And he was a low-grade d**k." She added, "He was put upon and kind of treated me like he was ..... better than [me]. I felt like a loser and the nobody that I was."
The former Bravolebrity then addressed Jonah's misogynistic text messages leaked by his ex Sarah Brady. "These texts seem crazy. And there are texts that I have sent to people and that people have sent to me that would seem nuts in a vacuum," she weighed in.
Despite not a fan of Jonah, Bethenny questioned whether it's right to leak private texts. "Where the line is in what texts and phone calls should be shared?" she said, before citing past similar incidents, "In the past, Mel Gibson's crazy phone call that his ex shared, Alec Baldwin with his daughter, that crazy conversation was shared. A lot was shared with Johnny Depp and Amber Heard and until they got into court, everyone was team Amber. So, I think it's tricky to be reading texts."
The SkinnyGirl founder admitted she doesn't "know the whole story" behind Jonah's texts, but called both the actor and the surfer "a little nuts." She wondered, "If you're in a relationship with someone for one year, are texts free game, like fair game? Has he abused her in a way that she has to cry for help and she needs help and she won't be silenced anymore?"
Sarah exposed Jonah for his alleged emotional abuse towards her on July 7 by unleashing screenshots of multiple text exchanges between her and her ex. In the text messages, the actor listed his over-the-top "boundaries" to be in a romantic relationship with him.
After leaking the text messages, Sarah said she intentionally waited until Jonah's fiancee Olivia Millar gave birth to his first child before she shared her experience. "I didn't want her to have to see all of this while she was pregnant because I didn't know what kind of stress that would cause on her and her baby, like, physically and everything," she said in a voice memo posted to her Instagram Story on Sunday.
The surfer continued to explain, "I waited until she had her baby so I knew they were physically not impacted by me sharing this s**t and she could be informed and make an informed decision of how she wants to care for herself and her baby, which she birthed and she created."
While Bethenny has slammed Jonah, Devin Booker and Candace Owens were some of public figures who have shown support for the "Superbad" star. The NBA star posted a picture of Jonah on his Instagram Story, while the talk show host tweeted that "there is literally nothing wrong with Jonah Hill's leaked text messages regarding what he wants in a partner."
"But there is plenty wrong with women in society today," she went on arguing. "Basic respect for your partner is now being labeled as 'misogynistic' from insecure women." She added in a separate tweet, "Women say there are no good men. The truth is there are plenty of good men but many women don't want to rise to the level of being good women. Basic respect for yourself and your partner isn't a tall ask."
Jonah has not publicly responded to Sarah's accusation, but he has been seen for the first time since she leaked his text messages. Seemingly unfazed by the negative headlines, he was seen cracking a smile with friends as he went surfing day in Malibu on Sunday.
