The chat show host dishes on what she's looking for in a partner.

Bethenny Frankel may have split from Jason Hoppy earlier this year, but that doesn't mean she wants to be single forever. In fact, she's already thinking of settling down again and she's opening up about what kind of man she's looking for.

The loving mom, talk show host and successful entrepreneur tells this month's issue of Health magazine that she's looking for someone to "take charge" of her life in a way that no one has before.

"Acceptance. Confidence. Sense of humor. Ability to take charge. I'm always so in charge, I'd like someone else to take charge," she says of her ideal partner. "And it's not that easy. I'm not that easy a person to take charge of. I don't want anyone to take charge of my business...I want someone to take charge of my personal life."

But Bethenny admits that she doesn't think everything will fall into place. "I don't think you can have it all at once," she says. "It's hard to have a career and a personal life and a love life and a sex life. If it happens, I'll let you know!"

In the meantime, she's content raising her daughter Brynn and hosting her new chat show. "I have everything; I don't want anything tangible," she says. "The intangible gifts would be sleep and peace."

Where is your ownership in it, Bethenny? You think that some guy is going to have to "make you" give up control. You don't surrender to anyone.  If a man pushes back too hard against your domination, you end the relationship.  Hint:  It's not them.  It is you.

She would have to stop demasculating men before any of them would considering taking charge. She had great guy and she ruined their marriage with her need to be in control of everything. I doubt there would be any decent men willing to give her a chance, at least none that have any knowledge of her.

WHAT?!!  Jason tried taking charge of your personal life by trying to get you to socialize with his friends and spend time with his family.  Don't say one thing and behave a totally different way, and don't fight tooth and nail on every little issue.

@lolarock Wow, why are you chasing everyone around this comment thread who posts anything negative about Bethenny? You look a little unhinged. You expressed that you think she's "cool," we can express we don't.

 @Mike0243 I have to agree with you. I could see how she was going to destroy the marriage, she had to control everything.When she couldn't, she became absolutely neurotic.  I don't know how he stayed with that treatment as long as he did, but most men will when kids are involved.

 @lolarock Oh yeah, it's such a horrible thing for family you're marrying into to think of you as one of their own.  Seriously lolarock??
