Bethenny Frankel: "I Don't Know That I Would Get Remarried"
Bethenny Frankel isn't ready to settle down again any time soon. Amidst a brutal divorce battle, the new daytime talk show host recently gave her take on remarrying in Redbook's October issue.
"I don't know that I would get remarried. It's too soon to think about," she admitted. "But I'd listen to my gut. All through reality television, being honest, saying what's on my mind—that was my gut."
Opening up about her personal life isn't new for the TV personality either. "On the Housewives I was single, alone, broke, uncertain—I was honest about all of that instead of pretending to be something I wasn't," she said. "I think that set me apart. But I didn't do it for that reason. It's just who I am."
Frankel, 42, ended her two-year marriage to Jason Hoppy, 41, in December 2012, and the two have been anything but amicable ever since. After the entrepreneur filed for divorce in early January, Hoppy counter-filed his own papers requesting primary custody of their daughter Bryn, 2, child support, and medical and dental expenses. The estranged couple also continued to live in their shared Tribeca loft in New York City for several months after the split.
"I have to say, divorce is the most difficult thing you could ever go through in your entire life," she told Good Day New York in April 2013. "I never heard how excruciating it is."
The couple have been spotted separately with their little tot since the breakup, and neither have bounced back with a new relationship just yet. "I think that when you are with your child, you have to make sure it's quality time," she told Redbook. "Every day, Bryn and I do at least one quality thing together and I do one thing for myself. I no longer feel guilty about taking 45 minutes for myself, because we take time for us."
Frankel's interview with Redbook hits stands Sept. 10.
