She struggled with her weight. She says her childhood was defined by alcohol, violence and eating disorders. She brought cameras into her therapy sessions.

As a result of the latter decision, Bravo viewers watched Bethenny Frankel break down on Sunday night, crying about her upbringing and the "f-cking crazy" experiences she went through growing up.

"It didn't feel that crazy then," she said on the show. "It really didn't."

But Bethenny now understands how the past has shaped her present. Watch her open up about both in the clip below.

Bethenny Frankel is more than just a motivational speaker. She's also a best-selling author.

Seriously, both those facts are, astoundingly, true.

The reality star has announced plans for yet another memoir, this one sounding even more inspiring than her past efforts. This is what Frankel had to brag say about the upcoming book:

"It's called A Place Of Yes and it's about getting what you want out of your life. It's about my experiences and how I handled them, like how people told me my first book would fail and it was a NYT bestseller for five months."

It looks like Teresa Giudice isn't the only one trying to capitalize on the desperate ignorance of Bravo viewers who think a Real Housewives cast member can offer anything remotely useful.

Bethenny Frankel will soon embark on a speaking tour that is being billed as "an evening of sass and fabulous fun." For a price, of course.

Tickets for Frankel's event will cost up to $75, but can you really put a cost on hearing Bethenney Frankel "dish on life, work and her passion for living healthy?"

We hope you can, America. We really hope you can. Keep reading to find out when Frankel will be in your area.

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."

Bethenny Frankel may be a liar, but we'd all agree we wish nothing but the best for her daughter.

That's why we're so happy to hear from the reality star that Bryn Casey is doing well, despite being born prematurely.

"I was worried," said Frankel to Life & Style of her child's birth weight, four pounds, 12 ounces. "I thought I'd bump her into something and it would be over."

Bryan is now five months old and weighs nearly 11 pounds.

"She's durable," Bethenny gushes. "She's not a teeny doll! She's really cute!"

You don't need to tell us that, B Frank. We have eyes - and we're so glad mother and daughter are happy and healthy.

Bethenny Frankel has described her childhood as marred by alcohol, violence and eating disorders. She's uses this background to garner sympathy from the public.

There's just one problem, according to the reality TV star's mother: most of it isn't true.

Beth Frankel

In an interview with Radar Online, Bernadette Birk says: "She did not come from a broken home  and her father did not leave her at four years old. I left her father when she was two years old and he did not support us with one penny, no alimony."

Birk admits to being "sick" over Bethenny's lies and adds:

Ashley Greene stars in Breaking Dawn, while Bethenny Frankel is up at dawn every morning to feed her baby daughter.

Okay. We give up. These two celebrities have very little in common, except for this: both walked the white carpet at last night's MTV Video Music Awards.

Greene looked unusually perturbed to be there, while Frankel posed with a big smile on her face, likely wondering: What the heck did I do to earn a spot on this guest list?!? Choose between the pair below:

Bethenny Frankel is out.

The reality TV star has made it clear in a new statement: she's walking away from The Real Housewives of New York City.

“Last season was scary and painful," she told Us Weekly, explaining why she turned down a fourth season from Bravo. “It took all of the joy out of it.”

Bethenny getting another run on The Real Housewives of New York City? Not in the plans.

With a new husband and daughter, Frankel says she "doesn't see any reason to go back."

It probably helps that Bethenny's spin-off series, Bethenny Getting Married?, attracted more than two million viewers for its June premiere, the highest-rated debut for a new Bravo show.

A network insider hopes Frankel does return for a cameo here and there - but don't count on it, readers: "My gut’s saying not to be part of this cast," she says.

In a photo that was totally not staged, Bethenny Frankel totally did not make thousands of dollars for splashing through the water in a bikini earlier this month in Montauk, New York.

According to Life & Style, it was the first time this reality star donned a bathing suit since giving birth in May and "she looked amazing," said a witness, adding:

"She looked like she'd lost all the baby weight, and she was toned, too. Even her tush was remarkable."

That sound you hear? Jason Hoppy totally slapping that impressive backside. Oohhh yeah!

Frankel says she's lost 33 pounds since squeezing out daughter Bryn this spring. How did she do it?

"There's been no real drastic any thing. I've really been eating, just not like a crazy person," she said, offering up this unhealthy piece of advice: "Taste everything, eat nothing."

We guess that's better than Kim Kardashian and her QuickTrim-based motto for dieting: Eat everything. Crap it all out.
