As we saw during Season 9 of The Real Housewives of New York City, Bethenny Frankel's divorce was a bit stressful and she shed some light to the group on how her separation was affecting her (clip above). It was a situation that Siggy Flicker has seen before and now The Real Housewives of New Jersey relationship expert is sharing some advice for anyone who finds themselves in a similar scenario.
"My heart breaks for Bethenny, because I have a lot of clients and a lot of friends who go through very similar situations, where the ex makes everything 70 million times more difficult. And it takes on a life of its own," she shared during an appearance on the Andy's Girls podcast. "And it is draining, and it is stressful."
So, what would the Write Your Own Fairy Tale say to anyone in that position? "But I would advise Bethenny to do exactly what she does, and surround herself with people who bring her up, good people. Carole [Radziwill] is a great friend to Bethenny. She’s supportive of her, she’s classy and she really comes to Bethenny’s side. You don’t need a lot of friends. You only need a handful. Less than five.”
Siggy and her words of wisdom will be back on Bravo this October when RHONJ season 8 premieres on October 4 at 9/8c. Preview, below.
