Real Housewives, real friends. Bethenny Frankel has revealed that she's fully recovered from her recent uterine fibroid surgery, and told how her costar Ramona Singer was her total rock throughout the process.
Talking to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live, the Real Housewives of New York City star admitted she felt mortified when she watched footage of herself (which aired on the Wednesday, June 22, episode) freaking out after being given her health scare diagnosis.
"I just feel embarrassed; now I feel like it's kind of common," she said, squirming, having been shown the clip again. "I shouldn't feel embarrassed. People are saying, 'It's so great that you're talking about it' and it definitely is.
'It was serious, and I was scared," she went on, "I don't have that much familiarity with surgery."
Thankfully, the reality star, 45, is now fully recovered from her health ordeal, and during an interview with Good Morning America's Lara Spencer Wednesday, Frankel revealed that she thinks it was likely responsible for her miscarriage two years ago.
But while she's bounced back physically and is taking great care of herself during her postoperative period, the Skinnygirl founder admits recovery would have been tougher without Singer.
"I had the surgery on May 20, and I've been treating myself really healthfully since then. I recovered really well. I have a scar, but I think I'm OK. You just kind of have to wait it out. I get the health check tomorrow," she explained.
And, Frankel says, she owes much of that to Singer, who texted and called her "every single day" for six weeks. "[She] brought me hummus because it had iron in it, brought me flowers," gushed the thankful friend.
Not that all of her RHONY relationships are quite so positive. Cohen called her out on the huge fallout she had with Luann de Lesseps during a trip to the Berkshires, where Frankel branded her a "whore."
Did she regret any of her actions? "Often I don't remember the things that I say. When I watch the show I don't remember saying things, and yeah, I didn't remember exactly," she admitted.
"To be honest I think I only said 'whore' but upstairs I recanted that I said 'slut and whore,' so I could have taken off slut," she went on.
