It looks like things still haven’t improved much since Bethenny lashed out at Luann.

This week, the Skinnygirl founder went on Watch What Happens Live, and the former Countess’ ongoing sobriety battle definitely came up.

Luann watched … and was so furious that she took to Twitter to share her outrage in a series of blistering tweets.

Speaking with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, Bethenny Frankel spoke about Luann de Lesseps’ battle for sobriety.

"I went all in," Bethenny says of her erstwhile role in Luann’s health strugle. "I got her rehab paid for."

Which made what went down between the two of them in Miami so shocking for her.

"So," Bethenny explained. "I just felt like, ‘What the hell are you doing? Like, who are you? How are you so not self-aware?’"

"Even right after that moment," Bethenny recalled. "She was like, ‘Well I’ve been going through a lot.’"

"I don’t want to be like, ‘I’ve been going through a lot, but I’ve been through a little bit this year.’"

Bethenny Frankel: Look in the Mirror

Bethenny played a major role in Luann’s intervention in the summer of 2018, after her brief but serious relapse.

But when Luann started drinking again in May of this year, Bethenny says that she was not in the loop.

On Watch What Happens Live, she told Andy Cohen that she doesn’t know "what’s going on."

"I think she’s doing the best that she can. …" Bethenny speculated.

"She’s shooting videos and doing her cabaret," she added. "So she seems fine."

Seems fine … but she doesn’t actually know.

“I’m out, you know what I mean?" Bethenny shared.

That said, it’s not like she no longer cares.

She adds: "But I would do it again if something really bad happened."

"I like the distance from the situation," Bethenny explains.

Luann saw that interview … and was positively fuming on social media.

"I don’t owe Bethenny Frankel my life," Luann tweeted furiously.

The former countess added that "friends are there help each other out.:

In case there was any doubt, Luann then added the hashtag: "#WWHL"

That’s not a subtweet — because Bethenny’s name is right there in plain letters. See for yourself:

Luann had even more to say after this callout.

“Friends don’t keep tabs," Luann expressed in a subsequent tweet, also including the tag "#WWHL."

She was clearly peeved with what she interpreted as Bethenny’s feeling that she owed her a debt.

"You don’t help someone and throw it in their face," Luann tweeted.

This time, she used the tag: "#RHONY." She wanted to reach a wide audience with her words.

Bethenny Frankel certainly had a hard time over the past year or so.

Remember, she lost her on-again, off-again boyfriend, Dennis Shields.

While that was certainly what drove her blow-up at Luann and the meltdown that followed on the show, that’s not the only factor.

Bethenny is also fighting a painful, intense custody battle with her awful ex-husband, Jason Hoppy.

She has a lot of stress on her.

We don’t think that she feels that Luann owes her a debt for helping her.

But she clearly wishes that Luann were a little more aware of other people.
