“She has literally tried to destroy every single thing I've done and I've never done anything to her," Kelly told Us Weekly. "I don't even know her. I am tired of her attacking my reputation and defaming me whenever she can."
While the two reality stars have been known to bicker, it was Bethenny’s feisty comments about Kelly during a September 10 appearance of Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live that sent the jewelry designer over the edge.
"It's time to move on. I'm going to have to take action. I can't be hired to work and then have people four years later attacking me for no reason. This is NOT a joke anymore,” Kelly pleaded. ”I don't want my reputation defamed for one more second. She's never even made an effort to have a conversation. She just saw me and went after me for no reason. This is real life now, this isn't a storyline."
