Bethenny Frankel: Rescued at Sea!

by at .  Updated at .

Bethenny Frankel is okay, folks.

The reality star had a memorable weekend for all the wrong reasons, she admitted today, opening up about a sailing trip gone horribly wrong.

Bethenny and husband Jason Hoppy took off on a sailboat between Block Island and Nantucket on Saturday. It was meant to be a simple eight-hour adventure... but the GPS malfunctioned and "the captain had to call the Coast Guard and we were hit by a big wave," Frankel explained to E!." It was very scary. It was traumatic. Absolutely traumatic."

A Coast Guard spokesperson confirmed the experience and says the group of 10 was guided back to shore around 4 a.m.

"It was so scary. I was thinking, Oh, my God, Bryn! I'm not going to be there at six o'clock in the morning when she wakes up and she's going to wonder where Mommy is and gosh, if something were to happen to me, what would happen to her. I was having horrendous thoughts."

Fortunately, all returned home safe and sound - and in time for Frankel's E! True Hollywood Story to air on Wednesday night.
