After watching her on The Real Housewives of New York for so many seasons, you’d like to think you’ve got Bethenny Frankel all figured out. She’s known for being one of the realest ‘Wives, and she isn’t afraid to put others in their respectful place. Although she continues to share her life with the world, there’s still a lot to learn about who Bethenny really is. Get a better glimpse into the life of RHONY's Skinnygirl mogul, below.
1. She Has Two Ex-Husbands
Most fans know about Bethenny's marriage to Jason Hoppy, since it was chronicled on Bravo's Bethenny Ever After, but what they may not know is she was married once before. In 1996, Bethenny marreid longtime friend Peter Sussman. She told Life & Style, "I loved [Peter] because of how much he loved me. I got married too young. I didn't wait for the great love of my life."
2. She Was on The Apprentice: Martha Stewart
Bethenny served as a contestant on the show in 2005 and even made it as one of the two finalists. Her savvy business skills are the reason why the Skinnygirl cocktail company is so successful today.

She's even participated in the NYU Alumni Association’s Speakers on the Square event.
6. She’s Raising Her Daughter to Be a Vegetarian
Well, at least she used to. On her own website, Bethenny wrote, "As far as raising Bryn as a vegetarian, that was a personal choice. If Bryn is older and wants something at a party that isn't vegetarian, I don't want her to feel ostracized. She’ll find her way."
7. She’s a Fan of House of Cards
But then again, who isn't?
