Bethenny Frankel experienced some incredible high points in 2018, including launching her Skinnygirl Jeans line to great success, continuing her disaster relief efforts, and sharing some precious moments with her daughter. But as is the case with life, Bethenny also unfortunately experienced some tragic moments throughout the year.
The Real Housewives of New York City mogul kicked off 2019 with a post on Instagram in which she reflected on the past year and what's to come in the next 365 days. The post noted that Bethenny experienced some "sad endings" and "new beginnings" in 2018. Ultimately, she has come away from 2018 with the valuable lesson that "life is precious," which she also included in the post.
Bethenny experienced the fragility of life firsthand last year through experiences such as the passing of Jill Zarin's husband, Bobby Zarin, in January, the loss of her on-off boyfriend Dennis Shields on August 10 and her near-fatal reaction to a "rare fish allergy" in December.
However, Bethenny, who went public with her rumored new relationship at the end of 2018, shared some posts from her New Year's celebration that show that she is now looking ahead to 2019 and looking forward to all the happy times on the way.
