Bethenny: 'I'm Sort of Good and Terrible'

Divorce is never an easy process to go through, but Bethenny Frankel is doing her best to find her "silver lining."

After staying relatively mum on her ongoing split from Jason Hoppy, Bethenny is letting her fans in on her emotional status at the moment in a new interview with Extra!, where she tells AJ Calloway that she's currently "sort of good and terrible ... I'm going through something very difficult. And you know what? Every dark cloud has a silver lining. I do have a beautiful daughter and I have a lot of things to be thankful and grateful for."

"I do have a beautiful daughter, and I have a lot of things to be grateful for," B says in a preview clip of the interview.

Bethenny goes on to talk about her new talk show, which will kick off its first full season this year after a very successful test-run over the summer. Frankel says fans love her show because it "feels so true and honest" with a hint of "inappropriate sometimes conversation." Are you excited for B's new show? Comment it up below!

I wish you were on the RHNY still.  It has never been the same without you, and now that Jill and Kelly are gone, I think it would be great.  (So sad to have to say that; Jill is probably the one person I was wrong about in  my initial reaction of in any of the RH shows; I totally loved her the first couple of seasons until she either showed her true colors or changed.  I personally think from what you said at the last reunion show it was a case of fame changing her, however, which makes me feel better about my perception skills.  I am usually pretty dead on in real life as well).

 

You will always be one of my very favorites, but I gotta say:  what in God's name are you doing with a fake like Byle Richards?  Yuck!

You are so wrong about Kenya. I can't think of anything nice about her. Even though she's part of the show she has no right to speak of someone else's sexuality. She's a total turn off.

All your life you are focus on your survival with no family to turn to. You work really hard  to get where you are. You didn't get love from your parents, so that you wouldn't know what to do with all the love and family values Jason brings forth in your relationship. You see we learn love early in life and if you didn't get it you wouldn't know how to love and accept it. The love is going to force you to change, and you are not willing to let your guards down, it is your means of survival and coping. Henceforth, what do you think is the possibility of repeating your history through your daughter? It is a mistake to cut off your daughter's relationship with her father and his family. There is no price you can pay for some old time family values she can learn from them. Best wishes Bethenny, I hope you and Jason can make it work.

I don't know what your intentions really are but I feel that you use people and when you achieve your goal you coldly throw them to the curb. I don't get a good vibe from your actions.

You are right about your attitude, you now have a beautiful daughter. Her for two years. Ok. (But you could of had artificial insemination) giggle. Would've been easier /cheaper. giggle. ;););)

bethenny is very demanding and difficult, but they just weren't a good match...he was always whining and feeling sorry for himself instead of being a man she could look up to!  jason wasn't very respectful either, making her order dinner when she was 7 months' pregnant, and not even listening to her while watching a game...jerk.  you're better off without him bethenny!  stay strong girl!

Betheny, Please do not forget who helped get you where you are today. Jason Supported your every move. He helped with Skinny Girl ,but I feel you don't give him the credit he deserves and is due. Turn the situation around, Jason put up with all your anxieties , who you do the same? Bryn deserves Her mom and dad not to just give up so soon. Fight for it Bethenny. Do you see you are repeating your own parents behavior which will cause Bryn pain. Wake up and thank you husband for all his hard work. You have emasculted Him on every episode, inch by inch

 I felt a little sad when they broke up to (well as sad as you can be over virtual strangers).  They seemed so good at the beginning and was hoping that Bethany had found the love and commitment she had been seeking since season one of RHNY.

 Right on Judyann!! On one episode Jason even called her damaged-even if true because of her childhood-that was so cruel to say and on TV!! Bethanny is being maligned all over the place. It takes two to end a marriage. Most people have not taken notice like you Judyann, that Jason is NOT the sweet, kind man Bethanny first met!

@Tuscon1234 I'm not sure what show you were watching, but Betheny did Everything! All he did was complain and his favorite "what about me" whine. Sorry Betheny, but you are a doer and he isn't. Even when you were soo pregnant he sat on his butt whining that "the games on ."

@Tuscon1234 interesting how people can see things so differently. I never saw it how you did. Bethanny was working long and hard before she ever met Jason, he didn't help her build anything. Every time I saw him he was whinny and controlling and having a tanturm, certainly never a strong secure man. I never got that relationship at all except her desire to be a mother, but not want what you want in a husband. Even my own husband that only saw a few monuments from time to time thought Jason was a whinny sickening brat.

 As much as I do love Bethany, I think they both had a part (from the limited amount a viewer gets to see) and wish they had not given up so quickly.  For example, I did not think her treatment of his family was very cool at times.  I have a very close Italian family, and if my husband had not want to include them in so much, as she appeared to not want to, we would have had some issues.
