Seacrest interviews Frankel during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about returning to Real House Wives Of New York.
I came back because I missed the connection the connection with the audience, that is I missed the freedom. I had to accept that I really am kind of a professional reality star. I mean, this genre is great for me because it’s liberating and you can kind of say what you want, and do whatever you, and be whoever you want, [and] express yourself. I really do miss that.
Seacrest interviews Frankel during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about returning to Real House wives Of New York.
I left because I felt it had run its course for me in that particular moment and with that particular group. I never, ever thought I’d come back, don’t get me wrong. But it’s been several years and I’m in a different place and I have a different perspective. And I think some of that comes from being a mom and different things being important and some things being inconsequential. And I think you know me well enough to know I have my own reasons for doing it. I’ve thought it through in many different ways. I actually feel good about it. I missed that relationship and that connection because these people went through everything with me in real time.
Frankel appears on the cover of People to discuss men, marriage, and life as a single mom.
I’m surprised at how much we can endure. I’m stronger than I ever imagined I could be. It’s a marathon, not a sprint. I just hope I’m on the 18th mile. You have to say, We’re going to get to the other side.
Seacrest interviews Frankel during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about her TV show Bethenny.
Men could learn a lot about women from the show. The show is what you talk to your girlfriends about when men aren’t around. It gets deep, and it gets light, and it’s really fun, and we’re not taking ourselves too seriously.
Seacrest interviews Frankel during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about breakup rumors in the tabloids.
No, he didn’t move out, he lives here, but we do argue like we do on the show. And it’s been a stressful last year. I’m not one to lie or sugarcoat it. This is my marriage, I love my husband, and I’m committed to my marriage and my family, but marriage is not easy. Maybe it is for other people, but I’m not an easy person. He’s actually not an easy person, and it’s not easy to be married to me with everything that goes on in my life. It’s just a whole weird thing.
