    Bethenny Frankel Opens Up About Her Dating Life, Reveals Post-Talk Show Plans

    Despite a canceled talk show and a lingering divorce battle, Bethenny Frankel is doing just fine.

    The Skinnygirl founder appeared on Watch What Happens Live on Tuesday with her former Real Housewives of New York cast mate Ramona Singer.

    "Are you and Jason [Hoppy] divorced yet?" Andy Cohen asked the 43-year-old about her ex. Frankel filed for divorce from Hoppy last January and they are parents to 3-year-old daughter Bryn.

    "Honestly, it's been a year, 15 months of this," the former reality star admitted. "I don't want to talk about it cause it's not best for Bryn. Honestly, I really don't."

    Frankel revealed that she is dating again, but would not go into detail about her current relationship status.

    "I am dating and I'm happy," Frankel said. "I'm good. I finally feel a little bit of liberation and a little bit of freedom, just a little bit of not, just feeling so bad. It's been a really, really hard time."

    As for her plans post-talk show—new episodes will continue through May—Frankel says she "needs a break."

    "I loved every day, I loved connecting to women," the brunette beauty explained. "It's just been an amazing experience. I have my own Skinnygirl business, I have the cocktails and a lot of different products that are launching this year. I really do need a break."

    (E! and Watch What Happens Live are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
