Bethenny Frankel Wants a Man to 'Take Charge'

The chat show host dishes on what she's looking for in a partner.

Bethenny Frankel may have split from Jason Hoppy earlier this year, but that doesn't mean she wants to be single forever. In fact, she's already thinking of settling down again and she's opening up about what kind of man she's looking for.

The loving mom, talk show host and successful entrepreneur tells this month's issue of Health magazine that she's looking for someone to "take charge" of her life in a way that no one has before.

"Acceptance. Confidence. Sense of humor. Ability to take charge. I'm always so in charge, I'd like someone else to take charge," she says of her ideal partner. "And it's not that easy. I'm not that easy a person to take charge of. I don't want anyone to take charge of my business...I want someone to take charge of my personal life."

But Bethenny admits that she doesn't think everything will fall into place. "I don't think you can have it all at once," she says. "It's hard to have a career and a personal life and a love life and a sex life. If it happens, I'll let you know!"

In the meantime, she's content raising her daughter Brynn and hosting her new chat show. "I have everything; I don't want anything tangible," she says. "The intangible gifts would be sleep and peace."
