Being Frankel: Bethenny Dishes on Past Eating Disorder, Weight Struggle

She's the woman being Naturally Thin diet books, but Bethenny Frankel admits in the latest issue of Redbook that there was nothing natural about her past eating habits.

"I used to get drunk and binge on everything in the deli, and then do a juice fast or starve, then do it all over again," she says.

However, the reality star's 2009 pregnancy changed her focus for the better.

"Most people treat pregnancy like the big binge, and then they can't take the excess weight off so they go on a crash diet," she explained. "I didn't listen to anyone; I knew I was going to do it my way."

With the Bravo show starring her and Jason Hoppy scheduled for a second season on Bravo, Frankel also admit she's glad to be free from The Real Housewives of New York City.

"I'm completely done with women being rewarded for bad behavior. I don't bite the hand that feeds me, and I'm very grateful to Bravo, but thank God I got out of that alive. It was fun the first season. Then it got not fun, and then it got scary and unhealthy and disgusting."
