"If the music stops, they're going to get in some trouble," the Skinnygirl mogul says of her "Real Housewives of New York" co-stars.

Bethenny Frankel just made some pretty sweeping statements about the financial situations of her "Real Housewives of New York" co-stars.

In a recent interview with Money magazine, the Skinnygirl mogul was talking about her rise to "financial freedom" when she shaded her "RHONY" co-stars' financial affairs.

"They can't afford the lives they're living, and if the music stops, they're going to get in some trouble," she said.

"You can't put yourself in a position where, if the shit hit the fan, you couldn't pay all of your bills at one time," she added. "If the world came to an end, I would be able to pay for everything. I might not be left with much, but I can afford what I have."

When Bethenny was approached to join the cast of the Bravo series back in 2008, she made a key decision that would later result in millions of dollars in her pocket.

Although she was paid just $7,250 for the show's first season, she refused to sign a portion of the Bravo contract that would have required her to give the network a percentage of the profits she earned from the businesses she promoted on the show, including Skinnygirl.

Regarding the "Bethenny clause" -- as it came to be known -- Bethenny said, "Everybody else just had to try to play catch-up after they saw what I did."

TooFab has reached out to Luann de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, Dorinda Medley and Tinsley Mortimer for comment, but we've not yet heard back. Bethenny's now-former co-star, Carole Radziwill, declined to comment.
