The former 'Real Housewives of New York City' star puts the former Destiny's Child member on blast for walking out on the morning show because she reportedly didn't like her dressing room.

AceShowbiz - Bethenny Frankel was seemingly annoyed by news about Kelly Rowland walking out of the "Today" show due to dressing room issues. When weighing in on the matter, "The Real Housewives of New York City" alum slammed the former Destiny's Child member over her "diva expectations."

"I've co-hosted with Hoda [Kotb] and I've arrived there and the makeup area that you touch up in is often a drop cloth, like, a black drop off," the 53-year-old said in a now-deleted TikTok video. "And then your dressing room is the size of a closet and you're trying to fit all your people in the clown car. And you know what? You're so excited. You're so gracious."

Bethenny went on to note, "You're co-hosting on the 'Today' show, an institution in entertainment, a news organization that is not about fancy dressing rooms." The TV personality acknowledged that the makeup area on the morning show "is completely communal" and the food is not that great, but she insisted that it should be "an honor" to be there alongside "Today" host Hoda Kotb. She then concluded, "That was not the moment for diva expectations."

Kelly was supposed to be a guest on the show's 8 A.M. hour and was set to step in for Jenna Bush Hager in the fourth hour as co-host of "Today with Hoda & Jenna". She, however, walked out because she and her team were unhappy with her dressing room.

Thus, Rita Ora was asked to fill in. The "For You" singer herself confirmed on Instagram that she was contacted last minute. Sharing a carousel of pictures, she penned, "Well, this happened! We had two minutes to prepare. Ahhh, thank you @hodaandjenna for asking me to co-host the show... Everyone was so lovely and kind, I had SO much fun doing it!! Love to everyone that tuned in, maybe we should do more??!!!"

The dressing rooms at "Today" are said to be among the smallest in TV, practically "glorified closets." The insider told Page Six, "They're not nice. It's the oldest building. There are major space limitations, [it's] not glamorous. It's not fresh flowers, and candles and gourmet food. It's basically [a] white box."
