UNIVERSAL CITY, CA - MAY 24: Bethenny Frankel visits

Bethenny Frankel’s summer plans just got a little more interesting. As always, she’ll be spending time (in her bikini) in the Hamptons with her daughter, Brynn, and cruising around in her Skinnygirl mobile. But now Bethenny has upped the ante, revealing that she plans to do some serious dating this summer!

In a new interview with Entertainment Tonight, the Real Housewives of New York star shared that dating is definitely on her agenda and she’s feeling ready for it.

Bethenny says that up until now she’s been super focused on work and hasn’t had time for dating lately. “If I do anything, I wanna do it well. If I date, I wanna do it really well. So, I can’t be dating unless I’m ready to, like, go full monty. You know?”

Bethenny and Dennis Shields broke up earlier this year but she just dipped her toe back in the dating pool – just a few days ago. “I ripped the Band-Aid off, like, two days ago. I did. Just lit the flame, lit the match, put the burners on and I’m off to the races.” She adds, “Open for business. Summer’s coming. It’s time to put the Bethenny burners back on.”

The Skinnygirl mogul says that life is very good right now and she’s happy with the way things are going. Bethenny is not letting any negativity get to her. “It’s fuel. I mean, if people are really spending time talking about you, you must be doing something so right that it’s just bothering them so badly that they have to try to say something negative.” She adds, “I don’t really think about haters and things like that. I just don’t. I’m happy. Life is good. I have my good friends. I can be irreverent, and polarizing and opinionated, but that’s who I am. Not everyone has to like me.”
