Bethenny Frankel may be the queen of tact in most cases, but when it comes to certain subjects, the Real Housewives of New York alum has a bit of a mean streak!

In her latest “Ask Bethenny” blog, she addressed the issue of unwanted holiday party invitations from non-friends, and she has a very blunt strategy.

“Life is too short to spend time with people you don’t care for,” she wrote. “As I sometimes do myself, politely decline. Don’t lie, but don’t go because you’re afraid to say no. Blow it off, plain and simple.”

Okay, so she slipped a “politely” in there too, but in the end that reads like a major diss and dismiss prerogative — just the classy version. Perhaps that’s what was going down when she neglected to wish some of her former RHONY co-stars happy birthdays?

Well, as she says, life's too short to waste with people you don't like!
