Bethenny Frankel Doesn’t Regret Filming Her Failing Marriage For Reality TV; Denies Being The Boss From Hell!

Bethenny Frankel Out And About

I've been wondering why Bethenny Frankel had crawled out of her Skinnygirl hole lately and started doing a lot of press. Then I remembered she has a new self-help book and a talk show to promote! Of course… 

Since everyone wants to know about Bethenny's never-ending divorce to Jason Hoppy, she's doing what she does best and spilling her side of the story. I guess Jason was unsuccessful in securing that gag order… 

"I'm going through a brutal, brutal time," Bethenny shares with ABC about her divorce and custody dispute. "I'm definitely bruised."


Worse than the marriage ending is Bethenny feeling like she let-down her fan base. "I felt like I disappointed people, because I felt like I was this role model, that represented the fairy tale," she confesses. Um… Bethenny you married at like 40, don't you think you were a little old for Disney Princess stories? 

While Bethenny has admitted to regretting her marriage, she doesn't regret letting a reality show capture every moment of her very honest life. 

"I don't regret letting the cameras roll at all," she reveals of filming Bethenny Ever After. "I could have skated by. I could have stayed on the show and been like, 'Oh, everything's perfect with us. Everything's great.' It made me feel dirty for people to think that I had this perfect relationship and this perfect life."

To get through her trauma, Bethenny admits she's looking for comfort. "I would imagine eventually, sex would be a nice release, but you know, who knows," Bethenny hinted as if she's not doing the dirty with billionaire friend with benefits! "If I'm exercising or doing yoga it'll take the edge off on some level. And then I like to have a Skinnygirl cocktail. I'm not going to lie. Honestly. It's mommy juice."

Bethenny also promises the same TMI approach for which she lives her life will be present in her talk show, which will dive into such scintillating topics as bikini line hair removal. Isn't that old news already? SATC was like a decade ago! 

Speaking of Bethenny's talk show, she recently took some heat for being an egotistical maniac on set and a fire-happy boss. Bethenny denies this and insists, "I'm nice to everybody!" Bethenny's most recent assistant Marilyn left amid what was allegedly Bethenny's tyrannical nature. 

"I run a tight ship," Bethenny concedes. "We're kind of not – it's not really lollygagging. . . . We have a lot of fun and we're definitely respectful, but it isn't a party." As for the allegations that she's going through assistants like she is skinny lattes, Bethenny emphatically denies it. 

"There's no disharmony because there is no set. I mean, we have no set," she explained to the NY Daily News. "I'm kind of working out any kinks, and making sure that it just is really a machine. It's a business." 

"If there were [problems], I would tell you," Bethenny clarifies. "And I'm sure there will be, but there isn't now." Bethenny says the story got blown out of proportion because the media loves to "sensationalize things." 

 "You can't stop it. I imagine it won't be the last time this type of thing happens," Bethenny says. "So you kind of got to keep your circle tight, and hope you have people around you that you trust, and never hire anyone new."
