Lisa Kudrow may have played one of the most popular characters on the hit series Friends with her iconic role as Phoebe Buffay, but that doesn’t mean her character’s light-hearted personality on the show necessarily matches her real-life personality. In September, “The Hills” star Spencer Pratt answered a fan question on TikTok about the “rudest” celebrity he’s ever met, whom he dubbed Lisa Kudrow. Much like how JoJo Siwa famously called Candace Cameron Bure the rudest celebrity she’s ever met.
In a second video, Pratt explained that he and his wife, Heidi Montag, met Kudrow at an NBC party in 2009 and the experience was far from pleasant. “Phoebe is approaching which was a little shocking as no one had spoken to us at all at the party,” he shared in the now-viral Tiktok clip. “Right in front of me, she says to Heidi, she needs to get away from me asap because I’m going to kill Heidi and I have serial killer’s eyes.” At first, Pratt said they thought it might be a joke, but as Kudrow afterwards went away, they found it wasn’t one. He added, “This is the rudest moment I’ve ever had with a human being.”
Bethenny Frankel got wind of Pratt’s TikTok uploads and commented, “This is crazy. She was on my talk show, and I had a crazy experience too.” Frankel went to her own TikTok to spill the tea on their own encounter.

Shortly after Spencer Pratt called the Friends star “the rudest celebrity he’s ever met,” Bethenny Frankel recalled a not-so-great encounter she had with the star. Like Pratt, the “The Real Housewives of New York City” alum took to her TikTok page to spill the tea.
Back when Frankel had her self-titled daytime talk show, Kudrow made a guest appearance. Recalling the incident, Frankel shared, “She stood out as the person who least wanted to be there the entire run.” The reality star thought Kudrow only agreed because of a favor for someone on the talk show to be. “I was basically just asking very simple, normal questions, and you could tell she didn’t want to be there. Which makes us two.” However, Frankel was still careful to give Kudrow the benefit of the doubt. “I am certain that Lisa Kudrow is a lovely person and a wonderful actress and there is no way I am going to get into her or throw myself into anything with Spencer,” she added.
As fans know, Frankel has never been one to shy away from speaking out on any subject or person that bothers her. On Sept. 2, in a TMZ interview, Frankel slammed the Kardashians for their use of Photoshop, noting that their Photoshopped Instagram images were “reckless” and not a realistic standard.
