She may float, like a butterfly- but Leah McSweeney stings like a bitch, if you mess with a hip hop icon…
The Real Housewives of New York star clapped back at RHONY alum, Bethenny Frankel, over remarks she made about Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion‘s song, ‘WAP.’
Never forget Leah’s love of the original Queen Bee, Lil Kim, as evidenced by this ICONIC lewk…
Sorry, I digress.
Leah’s dance off:
Like West Side Story‘s Jets and Sharks, Leah clapped back with a dance off (aka the WAP challenge) to her Instagram page after B stated, “Women should do better” about the song of the summer.
Leah wrote, “If we want to hold Cardi to certain standards why aren’t we asking the same of male rappers? If they can talk about WAPs why can’t she? WAP WAP WAP FOR LIFE! #ThankYouLilKim #ThankYouHipHop.”
Though Leah didn’t ‘Mention It All‘ by naming/tagging Bethenny in her post, her post came the morning after B’s podcast dropped stating her opinion.
Can we normalize dance offs as a way to clap back?!?! It’s the plot twist 2020 desperately needs….
What did Bethenny say?
In case you missed it, the humanitarian expressed her unsolicited opinion about the hit song on the Just B with Bethenny Frankel podcast.
“I was telling my boyfriend Paul the other day how trashy is very in now. Just like just being slutty and talking about dick, that you want dick, that you haven’t had enough dick lately.” (Quick aside- Bethenny and Paul broke up! Catch up here.)
The B Strong founder took to the ‘gram to write, “I don’t like when men speak like that. We haven’t like that men have been players. we haven’t like that men have called women sluts so that doesn’t mean that now we’re going to like being called a whore.”
“There’s some whores in this house:”
My personal favorite part of WAP is the ‘there’s some whores in this house’ loop in the background- it reminds me of the –wooo wooo from the Rolling Stones‘ Sympathy For The Devil. Bethenny’s opinion is the opposite of mine.
The Skinny Girl CEO found the lyrics of the song’s loop problematic for women, nor was she impressed with Cardi’s line about men spitting her mouth.
Bethenny is a cool mom…
Bethenny explained to her listeners, “Sex sells, it always has. We were talking about sex in songs.”
“I think Samantha on Sex and The City started this thing. Where it was liberation and sexuality. Which I get. I get it, the men have been the players and the men talk about their conquest and sex. why can’t women.”
Bethenny shaded Cardi B’s ‘tiny garage’:
Bryn’s mom analyzed the legitimacy of the song’s lyrics when she quoted the line: “park your mack truck in my tiny garage.”
B expressed her disbelief for the claim that Cardi B’s ‘garage’ is tiny. She claimed, Cardi B “has at least a two or three-car garage” before asking if the next song would be about anal sex.
