Even thought it’s fashion week, Real Housewives of NYC star Bethenny Frankel only has babies and books on the brain!

Bethenny confessed exclusively to HollywoodLife.com at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Red Dress Collection at Bryant Park on Feb. 11, “It’s a good time in my life. My book [The Skinnygirl Dish] is on the New York Times bestseller list, I’m having a baby, I’m in love. I moved downtown … all the things I wanted are happening.”

Bethenny, we couldn’t be happier for you! And even though we are all dying to know what she is going to call her little one after she gives birth, Bethenny insists she hasn’t picked a name yet … and doesn’t even know the sex! “I have thought of baby names. Actually at my book signings they’re all women so I get a lot of good ideas … so it better be a girl! But I [haven’t chosen] anything official yet.”

The reality show sensations admits, “I don’t know that much about fashion or designers to I’m not going to pretend.”  But one thing she knows a lot about is romance!  

Bethenny dished about her Valentine’s Day plans with fiance Jason Hoppy: “I’m going to Chicago for a book signing and for an event for Pepperidge farm but I’m going to take Jason out for a romantic dinner. I’m not going to cook because I’ll be in Chicago.  I don’t cook as much as people think!”  —Corynne Steindler & Katrina Mitzeliotis

great article! bethenny is hands down the best reality star on television. she’s emotionally mature enough to speak her mind without compromising her privacy and intelligent enough to argue with her costars without sacrificing her integrity. i hope she keeps it up in the next season of real housewives. (and that her and jill make up in time for the reunion!)

I think she should totally walk the runaway! Who says pregnant women can’t walk the catwalk! Pregnant women are just as beautiful as other “skinny” models if not more beautiful. They got life inside of the da*nIT!

Ps: I’d also like to say for the record, after seeing your photos and using my 6th sense, you are going have a little girl!

Awesome! Bethenny is proof before our eyes that with determination and hard work, your dreams can come true. She wanted it: the brand, the books, the career, the man and the baby. Be happy for her and maybe your own dreams will become reality.

Why, as women, do we claw each other down? I love seeing women achieve their goals. It’s really inspiring.

Congrats Bethenny and Jason!

From a girl in Philly chasing her own dreams!!

used to like her, but kinda over her… she’s a little too self-absorbed, but, guess that’s what it takes to make it in her world.
