Bethenny Frankel owes Omarosa Manigault $10,000 after losing a bet with the former "Apprentice" villain during a spat on her daytime talk show this week.

Frankel, a former health food chef turned liquor brand mogul and talk show host, sat down with a contentious Manigault, who rose to fame on Season 1 of Donald Trump's show and is now an assistant pastor in Los Angeles, and had it out Wednesday.

Manigault took Frankel to task over a 2010 appearance on "The View," in which she claims Frankel said "I have a real career" as compared to Manigault.

Frankel denied having used that phrase, and threw down a $10,000 wager on it.

"I think I said, 'No, actually, I have a brand, I have two New York Times best-sellers, I have a cocktail line… Omarosa used [her reputation] for being infamous…' Can we just get the quotes?! I will give you $10,000 if I said 'I have a real career.'"

And sure enough, after a producer pulled up the story on an iPhone, it turns out Frankel did make the comment.

"I said 'I have a real career,' I owe you $10,000," Frankel quickly admitted.

The conversation then segued into a heated debate about race and the media.

"It's different for you and I," Manigault said. "I am an African-American woman. You get to walk around and be mediocre and you still get rewarded with things. We have to be exceptional to get anything in this business."

Frankel fired back.

"I meant what I said. … I don't think you have a brand. I think you are infamous," she said.

"Honey, you make cupcakes. I worked in the White House, get a grip," Manigault snapped. "I am a strong businesswoman who celebrates being smart and there is a brand in being smart."

Frankel later tweeted about the exchange.
