Bethenny Frankel let cameras into her life for The Real Housewives of New York City, and that includes the ups and breakdowns. The Skinnygirl mogul revealed her struggle with fibroids on the Wednesday, June 22 episode and opened up further on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.

After watching a sneak peek for the 13th episode of season, Bethenny said she was embarrassed over getting teary on camera after her pre-op appointment.

"It just feels embarrassing," she told Andy.

"It's a scary thing to go into," Veep star Matt Walsh told her.

"I know, but I don't know, now I feel like it's kind of common. I don't know, I just feel embarrassed. I shouldn't feel embarrassed, people were saying it's so great that you're talking about it and it definitely is. It was serious and I was scared. I just don't have that much familiarity with surgery and things like that and I didn't really know anything about it," she conceded.

After visiting the doctor with Dorinda Medley, Bethenny revealed her doctor told her she had lost 10 percent of her blood due to fibroids in her uterus and surgery would be required to remove them. She had the surgery May 20 and was hospitalized for three days.

"I've been treating myself really healthfully since then and I recovered pretty well," she said on Watch What Happens Live. "I have a scar and I think I'm OK now."

Her next check up is Thursday, June 23.

The Real Housewives of New York City airs Wednesdays, 9 p.m. on Bravo. Watch What Happens Live airs Sunday-Thursday at 11 p.m. on Bravo.

(E! and Bravo are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
