Bethenny Frankel has described her childhood as marred by alcohol, violence and eating disorders. She's uses this background to garner sympathy from the public.
There's just one problem, according to the reality TV star's mother: most of it isn't true.
In an interview with Radar Online, Bernadette Birk says: "She did not come from a broken home and her father did not leave her at four years old. I left her father when she was two years old and he did not support us with one penny, no alimony."
Birk admits to being "sick" over Bethenny's lies and adds:"She went to visit her father for the first time at 15 years old. It was the same time she is now claiming she started drinking and doing drugs. I was never aware she was doing this. Even though she is bad mouthing her father she was always after his affection."
When was the last time Birk saw Frankel? 10 years ago, "when she borrowed my car and then demolished it and she left it in her boyfriend's lot and it got stripped. I called her to tell her and she started yelling at me and hung up... we have never spoken since."
This isn't the first time Bethenny's mom has called out her child for misleading fans. Is it possible to even take a side in this feud? Or can we consider them both losers?
