In a room packed with celebs — from Jay Z and Beyoncé to Gwyneth Paltrow — to see Coldplay perform on Sunday, Bethenny Frankel threw a diva fit and chucked a drink on a group of women when they blocked her view.
The just-divorced “Real Housewife” attended a packed VIP Coldplay gig at the tiny Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett, along with other VIPs such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Christie Brinkley, Jimmy Buffett and Karlie Kloss.
Witnesses said Frankel flew into a rage when a trio of women were in her way. “Bethenny was annoyed that the women were standing [in her way] and was really nasty, asking them to move,” said a source. “She got so annoyed, she ordered [a drink and] then threw [it] at the women . . . They were speechless.”
Another source said, “Apparently, [Bethenny] tried to pay a security guard to move them, but they refused to move. So then she threw a drink at them instead. Weird, since they weren’t exactly in a prime section of the bar.”
But a source close to Bethenny told us: “There were three women who were standing and blocking the view after being told multiple times by security to sit down, people were frustrated. It was a crush . . . and very hot. People were jockeying for a view. It looked like this woman, who vehemently refused to move, needed some cooling off . . . so Bethenny tossed some water on her.”
Although not Frankel’s intended target, one bystander who we hear was rudely doused was influential Hamptons fixture Lisa Pevaroff-Cohn, the wife of Goldman Sachs investment-banking boss Gary Cohn. A source said, “There was no VIP area in the tiny venue, and the A-listers were in a crush with a dozen or so SiriusXM subscribers who won tickets to be there.”
Frankel was sitting near Harvey Weinstein, Ron Delsener and Jon Bon Jovi. Jay Z and Beyoncé slipped in unnoticed by the crowd as soon as Coldplay took the stage, while 6-foot-2 Kloss moved smack into the middle of the throng, and Paltrow, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin’s ex, danced.
Reps for Frankel and SiriusXM didn’t comment.
