We were a little wrapped up in other chaos last week because we missed Bethenny Frankel giving the official confirmation that she’s returning to The Real Housewives of New York for season 8! Bethenny dished in a new interview about her never-ending divorce, her return to RHONY and revealed that she’s battling a few small health issues.
It was reported back in September that Bethenny had already signed on for season 8, but she now makes it official: “Yes. I am back [this season], and it is spicy. You know last year, I had my ‘new car smell’ still on me. And I wasn’t getting into too much trouble. This season, I am knee-deep in the mud.”
Speaking of things losing their new car smell…. Bethenny confirms to AH (via Buddy TV) that she and Jason Hoppy still have not finalized their divorce. She simply shared, “I am still married. I like to be good at everything, so I have the longest and biggest divorce in history. Three-and-a-half [years] now on a two-year marriage.” She also confirms that the apartment she remodeled and documented on her show is still legally hers, but she doesn’t live in it.
During a talk about physical fitness, Bethenny reveals that while she loves to live her active lifestyle, she hasn’t been able to work out in almost two months. “I’m in good shape because do what I love – I walk on the beach, I’ll snowboard if I am in that kind of a location. But I don’t believe obsessive exercise, I don’t believe in boot camp, and beating yourself up and being crazy, and setting yourself up for these crazy expectations that you can’t keep up with. I really believe in being overall consistent in your life.” She adds, “I’ve had a couple of little health issues lately. I haven’t been exercising at all for about eight weeks.” Hopefully we’ll be hearing an explanation of her health issues on the new season when it airs.
TELL US – ARE YOU HAPPY TO HEAR THAT BETHENNY IS BACK? CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS DIVORCE IS STILL NOT OVER WITH?
