Bethenny Frankel is mentioning it all when it comes to beauty. The Real Housewives of New York City alum has filled her feed with videos that reveal her beauty picks — and the products she’s decidedly unimpressed with. The rising de-influencer recently sat down with New Beauty to discuss all things makeup and hair, and the advice she gives to her budding beauty lover.

“She likes hair a lot,” the Skinnygirl mogul said about her 12-year-old daughter, Bryn Hoppy. “She’s into tying her hair up and doing heatless curls and the octo curl. I’m trying to teach her good habits too. I’m always telling her, ‘Don’t put heat on your hair if you don’t have to, because you don’t want to have damaged hair, and learn how to clean your skin.’”

Elsewhere in the interview, Bethenny responded to speculation that she’s launching a beauty brand. “That is everyone’s big theory!” she admitted. Alas, it looks like she doesn’t have her sights set on beauty for now.

“[Beauty] is the most crowded space,” she continued. “There’s nothing new to say, there’s nothing new to do. The beauty industry is so saturated with promises. Everything does everything. I don’t really have anything new to say right now. If I had some new solution or if I discovered some new ingredient, I would say it. I would share it! But I’m not there yet… and I have to really think about what that would be.”

She continued: “If I launched a brand, I would only do it because I would truly believe it could help the industry. It wouldn’t be like, ‘Let me do another line.’ There’s way too much out there. And nothing is different. I have no plans to enter into the beauty space right now, but if I come up with something that I think could help people or be different, I would.”

On a more somber note, Bethenny recently opened up about some health struggles she’s facing. “Many of you are asking why my face looks different in my makeup videos and it’s because I am messed up,” she said while on vacation in Aspen. “I am not doing that great. I’m so dehydrated and riddled with aches and pains. I have had liters of Pedialyte and water and kombucha and coconut water. It just goes right through me and I’ve gained like four pounds while being here because my body’s trying to hold on to any water it can.”

Bethenny continued: “This is, like, very intense and it’s gotten really bad in the last few years since this autoimmune thing I’m dealing with. I wake up like every two hours in such pain and dying of thirst. So it’s like my body won’t hold on to it. It’s crazy.”

In her caption, the philanthropist elaborated on her current health struggles. “A while back I shared what has been a serious battle with POTS [postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome]. This is an autoimmune disorder that seems to have been drastically exacerbated since COVID,” she wrote. “I know there are many of you out there, so thanks for all of the information. It’s certainly a condition to manage.”
