Known for her naturally thin physique and her outspoken dialogue on The Real Housewives of New York City and its spinoff, Bethenny Getting Married?, Bethenny Frankel attended New York University and the Natural Gourmet Cooking Institute of New York, where she went on to become a Natural Foods Chef.
Prior to her role on Housewives, Frankel appeared on NBC's The Apprentice: Martha Stewart, where she came in second place. Frankel is also an accomplished author, releasing Naturally Thin in 2008 and readying her second book, The Skinnygirl Dish: Easy Recipes for Your Naturally Thin Life, to hit store shelves later this year.
Frankel married Jason Hoppy, whom she met at New York City nightclub Tenjune, in March 2010. Two months later, the newlyweds welcomed their first child together, Bryn. Frankel and Hoppy separated in December 2012.
