"I know you are going through a very, very hard time right now," the talk show host told the former Real Housewives star during an appearance on her program airing Friday. "And I say it every time you are here. I love you and I know what's going on and I'm sorry about it. I support you and I hope it all works out soon."
"I love you so much," Frankel replied. "Thank you so much for everything you've done for me."
But Frankel, who split from husband Jason Hoppy in December and filed for divorce in January, acknowledges the one reason she'll never regret the marriage—the couple's 3-year-old daughter, Bryn.
"She is unbelievable," Frankel said. "She is the light of my life and she gets me through this."
"Hang on to the good stuff," DeGeneres noted.
