After watching Bethenny Frankel on The Real Housewives of New York City for so many seasons, you would think we would know pretty much everything there is to know about the Skinnygirl mogul. However, there's actually a lot we get wrong about Bethenny.
Bethenny opened up about some of the major misconceptions the public has about her during a recent interview with Talk Stoop. After host Nessa asked when Bethenny gets to sleep, the RHONY mom shared that it's maybe more than we thought, given her crazy busy schedule — but still not that much. "I do sleep. Now, I don't sleep well, and I don't sleep as much as I would like, but I do make it a priority," she said. "I don't exercise that much, which people think that I do. I think there's a lot of things people think about me that are probably not accurate."
She then went on to reveal one of the biggest misconceptions people have about her, which many fans are sure to find surprising. "I can be kind of socially awkward. Not meaning I'm awkward, I can't talk to people; I just kind of hide a little bit," she explained. "I do love to be home. I'm not really as social as I think people think that I am."
Bethenny continues to share the most intimate parts of her life in the new season of RHONY, which just kicked off earlier this month. That includes the passing of her boyfriend Dennis Shields in August 2018, which provided one of the rawest and most emotional moments we have ever seen from Bethenny in the Season 11 premiere. "I've never in my life experienced this moment, this feeling, this hysteria," Bethenny said during the episode as she grieved this tremendous loss. "Time is healing the wounds a little more than I thought. It's going faster. And then I feel guilty, like how could you be having fun when Dennis is dead? But I'm trying to do what he would want me to do."
We'll see Bethenny reveal more about her relationship with Dennis in an all-new episode of RHONY Wednesday at 9/8c. Watch a preview, below.
