Bethenny Frankel Mother

A new episode of Bethenny Ever After airs tonight at 10/9c on Bravo.

On the 6th episode this season titled “Feeing From 40,” it’s a Hoppy birthday for Bethenny—or is it? As her 40th-birthday bash draws near, Bethenny falls victim to blues and blahs, and Jason plans surprises aplenty. On edge, Bethenny distracts herself by practicing for her stint on “Skating With the Stars.” A preview clip is below.

In other news, Bethenny Frankel’s mother is once again speaking out against her following the most recent episode of BEA and the release of Bethenny’s latest book A Place of Yes, in which Bethenny opens up about her childhood issues.

“I didn’t feel like a victim as a child, and I don’t feel like one now,” Bethenny, 40, writes. But “I never felt very safe, and I never felt like I could trust that someone else was in control of the situation.”

In separate interviews, both Bethenny and her mother Bernadette Parisella Birk spoke to the HollywoodLife. “I shouldn’t have been in Vegas at 13,” Bethenny explains. “I shouldn’t have been in nightclubs at 13.”

Bernadette however insists Bethenny isn’t telling the truth about her past. “She was NOT in any nightclubs at 13, unless she was crawling out her bedroom window at night,” Bernadette tells the HollywoodLife. “But yes, we took her to Vegas with us because we were not going to leave her with a babysitter,” adds Bernadette. “We took her all over the world, she wasn’t out of my sight ever.”

Bethenny admits to the site that not all of her childhood was bad. “My childhood was not terrible,” admits Bethenny. “I had a lot of happiness — or at least a lot of fun times. I did a lot of interesting things’ — but not necessarily at an age that would have been appropriate.”

Bethenny reveals that she has no intention of reconciling with her mom for the time being. “My life is kind of the way I want it right now,” says Bethenny going on to add that her intent is not to hurt her mother with the things she wrote in her book.

But Bernadette says she isn’t buying it. “If she didn’t want me to read the parts about me in the book then why would she publish it?” Bernadette wonders. “My comment is the same as it was — I consider her to be demented and beyond help,” Bernadette says. “Reconciliation is not up to her at all. She would never want to repair anything because then all of her lies would come out.” Wowzers. A picture of Bernadette is below.

In an all new interview, Bethenny Frankel, star of Bethenny Getting Married reveals her mother has yet to meet her daughter Bryn Hoppy.

“My mother hasn’t expressed any interest in meeting Bryn, which was shocking to my husband,” says Bethenny to Parade. “Life is hopefully long, so I don’t know what the future will bring. Right now, I would say no. I only want positive energy around her for as long as possible. Life will be difficult enough before she knows it.”

This comes just days after Bethenny’s cover story with PEOPLE magazine during which she opened up about her childhood abuse. “I never had a true childhood,” she tells People. “There was a lot of destruction: alcohol abuse, eating disorders and violent fights.”

Bethenny’s father is the now deceased highly known horse trainer Bobby Frankel. According to Bethenny, Bobby walked out on she and her mother, Bernadette Birk, when she was just 4 years old. Bethenny’s mom re-married another horse trainer named John Parisella when Bethenny was 5, which led to them moving homes seven times in over 10 years. Bethenny says her father cut her off when Bernadette accused him of keeping money from them. She also says her father seemed to resent her and punish her for the actions of her mother.

Things then got hostile with Bernadette and her new husband John. “The house would be in shambles,” Bethenny says of her mom’s vicious outbursts in which she would smash “dishes, pictures, the TV — anything she could see” and physically fight with John. Bethenny says she would either have to hide in her closet or call the police to break things up.

Bethenny also sheds light on her troubles with her weight and drugs during her teen years. She began starving herself and purging at the age of 13. “I was owned by dieting,” she says. “I hated myself.” Her situation worsened when she began clubbing in her teens, drinking heavily and even doing cocaine.

As for Bethenny’s relationship with her mother today, she says the two have barely spoken in the past 10 years. Bethenny however makes it clear she is over the past and is now in a better place with her husband and daughter. “I just want to give her the life I didn’t have,” says Bethenny of baby Bryn.
