Just because Real Housewives of New York is in the off season, it doesn’t mean that the tough times have paused for Bethenny Frankel. The Skinnygirl founder had a a serious health issue to address after discovering that she has a cancerous skin growth on her face.
In an interview with People, Bethenny discussed her basal cell carcinoma diagnosis. She said, “I had a growth on my face that was enlarging. I guessed it to be a basal cell carcinoma and had it lanced and removed.”

Bethenny Frankel doesn’t do things half-assed. The Real Housewives of New Yorkstar shared recently that she and her team had been devoting all of their time to gather up donations – monetary and physical – to help victims of Hurricane Harvey in Texas and this weekend she got to deliver some of it in person and help out where she could.
Bethenny headed to Texas to meet with survivors and help disperse some of the donations coming in on behalf of her BStrong Foundation and Dress For Success. She shared on Twitter with one of the photos below, “Yesterday, these strong women shared their story so you could see where 100 percent of #BSTRONG #HurricaneHarvey donations are going”
Even though Bethenny has never had a problem “telling it like it is” when it comes to her RHONY costars, but she is very private when it comes to her own personal life. So there’s no word on whether she took a solo trip or if she was accompanied by her daughter Bryn Hoppy or her on-again boyfriend Dennis Shields, but she did share a bunch of photos from her vacation.
Say what you will about Bethenny Frankel, but she knows how to get sh*t done. The Real Housewives Of New York star has sprung into action since the devastation of Hurricane Harvey hit Houston and its surrounding areas, rallying business, volunteers, and donations through her organization, B Strong.
So far, Bethenny’s efforts – largely spread through social media outreach – have recruited two hundred volunteers, $80k in donations, and thousands of supplies for disaster relief to those affected by the tragedy. Bethenny has also pledged, herself, to travel to Houston to aid in distribution of gift cards and organize outreach. Her fundraising efforts are geared toward women and families in crisis.
