Tyra Banks is hitting back at some claims.
The Dancing With the Stars host responded to accusations that she is opposed to having Real Housewives cast members on the hit dancing show in a statement on Friday (October 23).
The statement came after former Real Housewives star Bethenny Frankel alleged in a now-deleted tweet that Tyra “clumped me in her no more housewives mandate on @DancingABC.”
Tyra‘s Elana Rose said in a statement to Page Six that the claim was “100 percent untrue.”
“She’s a huge fan of the Housewives and everyone knows Tyra is a businesswoman first. As a businesswoman, why would she say anything against the ‘Housewives‘? She has nothing to do with casting.”
She also said Tyra “loves Andy [Cohen]” and has “been on Watch What Happens Live several times, and that she “just tried to get one of her really good friends on the Housewives! She watches the shows. She loves them.”
“I deleted that last post Bc I really like & have a great relationship with Deena Katz from #DWTS. If @tyrabanks wants to come on my podcast, she is welcome anytime as she has built a successful brand on her own in her own way. #justbwithbethenny,” Bethenny later wrote.
Bethenny also just addressed possibly returning to the franchise.
