Bethenny’s making bold statements! The ‘RHONY’ star totally trashed her last marriage on her March 22 visit to ‘Watch What Happens Live!’
Is Bethenny Frankel ready to put her whole life back in front of the cameras? Well, Real Housewives of New York returns on April 7, but first she’s reflecting, and revealing that she’ll never walk down the aisle again! So, does she have regrets?
Bethenny Frankel Disses Ex Jason Hoppy
We all know Andy Cohen isn’t afraid to ask the tough questions — and he full on asked if she would call her relationships a failure. Bethenny split from husband, Jason Hoppy, in 2012 after two years of marriage. The two now have Bryn, their adorable 4-year-old daughter.
“As far as my personal life, to be a failure? Yeahhhh…” she said on WWHL. “It’s just — I’ve been through some pretty negative stuff, and what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. You’re catching me on the back nine right now. I wouldn’t have been able to do the show a year and a half ago. I would have not been enjoyable for many.”
While she stated that she doesn’t “believe in regret,” she’s not about to get married again.
“If anybody would ever want to get married to me on television, I would run like a thief in the night,” she said laughing. “I will never get legally married again, I will never ever be legally married again. Marriage is the’Hotel California’: You can check out anytime, but you can never leave.”
She also said that she does believe in marriage, just not for her. “I do believe in life after love,” she added.
Is Bethenny Dating?
So no wedding bells in the future for Bethenny, but will we see Bethenny dating on RHONY?
“I’m not dating now. I mean I’ve been,” she told Andy. “I wish that my dating life were as colorful and exciting as it’s written about, but right now I’m kind of at a standstill. I’ve been — I’ve dated this year. I’ve had a lot of different experiences, but I have a daughter and I am still married.”
Her daughter will not be in front of the cameras at all.
“You will not see Bryn on the Housewives. She’s a little girl and I don’t want that for her,” she added. “We’re adults and we make these decisions for ourselves…. Being a mother changes you. Everything else becomes so non-important. One thing that’s pure and you have to protect and there’s that.”
Are you shocked that Bethenny totally ruled out marriage?
