Former reality TV star Bethenny Frankel has had an eventful summer – part good and part sad. The former Real Housewives of New York star is in the midst of a divorce from Jason Hoppy, but on the up side is launching her own talk show next week! The sassy star sat down with Redbook to dish about divorce, remarrying and more!
Bethenny shares that making quality time with her daughter Bryn is a top priority. “I think that when you are with your child, you have to make sure it’s quality time. Every day, Bryn and I do at least one quality thing together and I do one thing for myself. I no longer feel guilty about taking 45 minutes for myself, because we take time for us.”
The celebrity mom says she’s not sure if marriage will be on her agenda anytime soon. “I don’t know that I would get remarried. It’s too soon to think about. But I’d listen to my gut. All through reality television, being honest, saying what’s on my mind—that was my gut.”
Everyone who knows Bethenny knows that she’s a “tell it like it is” kinda gal and is brutally honest about her own ups and downs. She thinks that will help set her apart from other talk show hosts. “On the Housewives I was single, alone, broke, uncertain—I was honest about all of that instead of pretending to be something I wasn’t/ I think that set me apart. But I didn’t do it for that reason. Its just who I am.”
Bethenny’s new show launches on Monday and we can’t wait!
