Bethenny Frankel had a very bitter and very public divorce from Jason Hoppy, and even though the split is behind her, she’s still having a tough time adjusting to the changes and the way they’re affecting her daughter, Bryn. The Real Housewives Of New York star recently had a bit of a breakdown while shopping with her costar Carole Radziwill after their conversation turned to Frankel’s invite to Dorinda Medley’s birthday party.
“I’m not going on my weekend – which is every other – with my daughter, away. I never thought I’d have a kid – I live for her, and she’s going through a hard time…I don’t care about anybody but my daughter. And I’m not the only one who has a daughter, but, whatever my situation is, it’s pretty f—ing bad, and that’s my own thing, and I can’t do it,” she says in a recent clip from the show.
Radziwill assured Frankel that everyone understood, but Bethenny had a good cry in the middle of the store and said she was embarrassed for letting it out in front of someone she doesn’t know very well.
“Sometimes you will open yourself up to a stranger easier than someone that you really know,” Frankel said.
Bethenny recently debuted a new look, chopping her normally long locks into a messy bob that frames her face.
“When Bethenny came in, I could tell she was ready for a big change, but she didn’t want to tell me she wanted it, she wanted me to tell her what I thought she should do. When we both found out we were on the same page she was all for the shorter look,” stylist DJ Quintero told People. “I’m not sure we will go shorter in the future. I wanted it to be shorter than a ‘lob’ and not a bob — somewhere in between, like a ‘mob.’ ”
