Just a week after her PEOPLE magazine cover story came out detailing her volatile childhood, Bethenny Frankel’s mother, Bernadette Birk, is now telling her side of the story to Star magazine.

“I love my daughter but what she’s saying is killing me,” Bernadette reveals in a new interview in this week’s issue of Star. Bernadette denies Bethenny’s assertion that she was a bulimic who was always drinking.

Bethenny told PEOPLE Bernadette was “never a mother to me” and calls her childhood “toxic.” Bernadette, an interior design professor, admits there was discord in the family but insists Bethenny was “the most important person in my world.”

Bernadette says she and Bethenny have only spoken twice in the last 10 years, also adding that she only knows what is going on in Bethenny’s world by watching her on television.

Bernadette’s ex-husband and Bethenny’s former stepdad John Parisella did however corroborate Bethenny’s story in PEOPLE.

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.
