Bethenny Frankel Fires Back at Travis Kelce’s Dad For Calling Her a ‘Troll’

Bethenny Frankel has responded to Travis Kelce’s father, Ed Kelce, who dubbed her a “troll” on Facebook. The 53-year-old TV personality focused the Feb. 26 episode of her podcast, Just B with Bethenny Frankel, on the back-and-forth between her and Ed, which began with Frankel labeling Travis, 34, a “peacock” and casting doubt on his relationship with Taylor Swift in a social media outburst.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Frankel began: “Travis Kelce’s father branded me a troll. So, I can appreciate and applaud a parent defending their child, especially when questioned about it.” The former Real Housewives of New York City actress went on to say, “I just wish he had expressed an opinion rather than just a verbal insult because, you know, as we teach our children, it’s better to express yourself than to criticize.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Frankel then claimed that Ed “used an insult instead of his intellect” and likened the situation to Travis’s 2024 Super Bowl rant against Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid. “I did not mention him pushing his coach, which is a physical expression versus using your words and having a conversation, which is kind of like what his dad did,” she went on to say.

 

 

Frankel then told any Swifties that if they “come for” her, she will defend herself. “The Swifties can come for me, but I’m going to defend myself,” added Frankel, who previously stated that Travis and Swift, 34, were on her “Mount Rushmore of couples.”

 

 

She claimed she “wasn’t even criticizing their relationship” and that Ed’s Facebook post calling her a “troll” was “amazing clickbait.” She immediately said, “Yay for Travis Kelce’s dad.”

 

 

Frankel went on to compliment the NFL player and singer on the program, attempting to clarify her previous “peacock” remarks. “I mean, they are on top of the world. They’re both extremely successful. I have stated that I literally believe he is a peacock, and there are two peacocks in this relationship, and it usually doesn’t work,” she explained..
