Life as a reality star is not as easy at it might appear to outsiders – Real Housewives of New York City alum Bethenny Frankel has learned this first-hand. But despite the difficulties related to a life in the public eye, Bethenny insist that, given the opportunity to return to a time before her Real Housewives fame, she would absolutely take the same route to fame.
A crumbling marriage and a massive stress load — these are just a few of the side effects of Bethenny Frankel’s quick ascent into international fame. The reality star recently told Nightline that she is most definitely going through a difficult time and that the cause is a combination of a constant presence in the public eye and an inherent tendency towards workaholism. “I’m going through a brutal, brutal time…I mean, there’s no other way to slice it.”
Some of Bethenny’s current difficulties stem from personal disappointment. Despite all that she’s accomplished (including the massive success of her Skinnygirl drinks and the launching of a personal talk show), Bethenny worries that she’s let down her fans. “I felt like I disappointed people, because I felt like I was this role model, that represented the fairy tale.”
But in spite of everything she’s been through, Bethenny says that she has no regrets concerning her tenure as a reality star — and that includes allowing the public to witness the deterioration of her relationship with ex Jason Hoppy. The celeb theorizes that, without the presence of such a spotlight on her personal life, Bethenny might have stayed in a toxic marriage even longer and, in the long run, would have been even more “bruised” than she is today.
