The Real Housewives of New York City turned ugly this week.

Or fun, depending on your point of view.

Are you on Team Bethenny or Team Kelly?

People spoke to each star about what's been going on...

On Kelly: “I have met her no less than seven to 10 times, and she’s a ‘faux-cialite’ — that’s a word that I came up with, and she defines that word. Everybody in high school knew that girl who ignores you until you got on the cheerleading squad. She’s just that girl, and it’s resonating with a lot of people.”

On the feud: “The really funny thing is that she thinks that I’m the one who looked like a lunatic last night! She believes that [her former employer] Page Six Magazine, which doesn’t exist anymore, is the Washington Post. It’s not like we’re dealing with someone who has a full deck of cards. Ramona said it best when she said it’s like she doesn’t have a brain. She’s the scarecrow from The Wizard of Oz.

On the backlash against her: “I’m not feeling beat up. It’s fun. It’s five different women in New York, and it gets a little hot and steamy. What’s wrong with that?”

On the feud: In the middle of that charity meeting, “Bethenny attacks me, calling me ‘Madonna’ — calling me names.She put me in a very awkward position in front of five other women. I was really hurt by that. I don’t even know these people and they’re calling me names!"
