When you're as famous and gorgeous as Bethenny Frankel, people are of course going to speculate about how you're able to maintain your stunning appearance, which usually brings about rumors of plastic surgery. Now, Bethenny is setting the record straight about she has and hasn't had done. 

The Skinnygirl mogul confirmed that her appearance has changed over the years and revealed the reason why in a recent interview with "I do look different. I’ve had Botox in my jaw," she said during's 2016 Newfront in New York. "You can see that my jaw has completely changed."

You can see the difference in Bethenny's jawline in these photos from May 14, 2016 (left) and May 1, 2012 (right).

It all started about three years ago when Bethenny's dermatologist suggested that she inject Botox in her jaw "because it's so tense" as a result of grinding her teeth for years. The treatment, along with getting a night guard about eight years ago, has helped to relax the muscles in Bethenny's jaw, thus softening her formerly defined square jawline, according to

The Real Housewives of New York City entrepreneur said the results have allowed her to change up her look even more recently. "I think it’s why I can take a shorter haircut," she said.

Bethenny said she previously had Botox injected elsewhere on her face and still occasionally gets it. "I don’t do it religiously," she told "Maybe once a year when I think of it, l’ll be like, oh I look like a Shar Pei, let me do that."

Bethenny also shot down claims that she has had invasive work done on her face, although she has been open about having work done on her breasts in the past. "I have not had invasive plastic surgery, I have not had a nose job," she said.
