Bethenny Frankel: Dating and Happy!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Bethenny Frankel has been dealt a few difficult cards in the past year or so.

She is going through a tough divorce from Jason Hoppy and her talk show just got canceled.

But the former Bravo star returned to the network that made her famous last night and told Andy Cohen that she's doing just fine, thanks.

"I am dating, and I am happy," Frankel said on Watch What Happens Live. "I'm good. I feel a little liberation, a little bit of freedom, just a little bit of not feeling so bad."

"It's been a really, really hard time." 

Out of respect and love for her daughter, Frankel didn’t go into detail regarding her ongoing legal split, but did refers to it as a "surreal, crazy, insane situation."

Frankel appeared on the program opposite Real Housewives of New York City cast member Ramona Singer and reiterated that she’s “happy, but I have not totally come out on the other side.”

She also said she felt “diluted and shackled” by the structure of Bethenny, concluding of its cancelation:

"I wanted it to get renewed because of how many people are invested in it, because I took pride in it, and I do love doing it. It's great being able to do the business segments, and talk to women. But... it's not what I really should be doing. I didn't love it the way I thought I would."
