RHONY alum Bethenny Frankel branded a '15' of 1 to 10 on the 'crazy chicken scale' by Shark Tank co-star Kevin O'Leary

RHONY alum Bethenny Frankel was branded a '15' on a scale of 1 to 10 on the 'crazy chicken scale' by her Shark Tank co-star Kevin O'Leary.

The businessman sat down with David Yontef to record an episode for his podcast, Behind the Velvet Rope, where he revealed his true feelings for the reality star.

When the TV personality asked Kevin, 67, to weigh in on how Bethenny was as a guest judge on the show, he gave an honest review.

"Well I know Bethenny quite well. She's got a lot of energy as you know, and you know, she, everybody has their own style. Actually. I've done deals with Bethenny. We have, we have a deal called Snarky Teas together, which has done quite well. So, but you know, everybody's their own crazy chicken. And she is definitely on the scale of crazy chicken."

The podcast host pressed for more asking: "would she be from zero to 10, 10 being the most?"

In which the investor replied: "On the crazy chicken index, she'd be a 15. You know, on I'm that old adage it goes to 11. Well, she goes to 15 on the crazy chicken scale."

David continued to pry in his response saying: "Doesn't shock me. What about the fact, you know, she has this reputation of being like very difficult, like difficult to like work with like, is that true?"

Kevin defended the Bravo star saying: "No, I think she's just her, you know, she's her own self and she sticks up for herself. Nobody's difficult to work with. They're all competitors. I mean, it's not like, you know, every, nobody's the same and that's, I think it's the, it's the unpredictability of what's going to happen. That makes the show so interesting to watch. You have no idea what she's going to do."

He continued: "We we've had plenty of guests that just are stunned by, you know, they think they're ready for it and then they just got ripped to shreds. And so it's really, I'm happy to, I'm happy to deliver that news to them. No problem."

Bethenny, 50, and Kevin have co-starred on the Emmy Award-Winning series numerous times over the years.

Earlier in the episode, the Shark Tank cast member was asked if he thought Jennifer Lopez would make a good guest judge on the show, in which Kevin highly praised the singer.

"You know, in the brief moments I've known her, you know, backstage and at The American Music Awards or that kind of thing or on the set of Shark Tank, I would, I would say she's a pretty pragmatic woman given all the ups and downs that she's dealt with in her life. And I think that adds character, is what I think. And I would guess that she would be a good shark because she could take the heat."

He added: "You got to remember something, we say hi to these guests. And we, we, we enjoy meeting them and their company, but the minute those cameras start rolling and a deal's in front of us, they’re competitors. And we rip them to pieces. I'm happy to shred her to pieces. If I, if I have to, that's fine."

Kevin is one of six investors on Shark Tank that hear pitches from entrepreneurs for a business or product opportunity they wish to develop.

According to Sharkalytics, O'Leary has invested over $8million on 40 deals across 131 episodes of Shark Tank.

His largest investment came in season six when he invested $2.5million for 10 percent of Zipz Wine's business.

His second largest investment of $1million went towards How Do You Roll? – a chain of quick-service establishments selling quality made-to-order sushi rolls.
