WWHL, Bethenny Frankel


It sounds like Bethenny Frankel is single but so not ready to mingle.             

Before her triumphant return to the Real Housewives of New York City next month, the Bravolebrity stopped by Watch What Happens Live for a one-on-one interview with Andy Cohen.

In addition to teasing the new season and reflecting on her marriage to Jason Hoppy, the SkinnyGirl founder revealed a bombshell: She's not dating anyone!

"I wish that my dating life was as colorful and exciting as it's written about, but right now I'm kind of at a standstill," she explained. "I dated this year, I've had a lot of different experiences but I have a daughter and I am still married."

She added, "I don't know where my judgment is. I don't know what I'm looking for. I think the guy I'd need to be with needs to be able to handle me, which is a tall order." Most recently, Frankel was linked to Michael "Mac" Cerussi lll

Another memorable relationship fans know a whole lot about is Frankel's past marriage to Jason Hoppy. While they aren't officially divorced just yet, Frankel admitted to learning a few lessons in the world of love.

"I think people should be in relationships with people that really accept them and understand them. I think fame and attention and money does not bring out the best in everybody," she shared. "I think money, in many ways, is the root of all evil."

She added, "Relationships are really hard but you have to go with your gut because it's the best shot you have. Women try to drink a situation pretty and believe me, I'm good at that."

For now, Frankel is focused on raising her daughter Bryn while also gearing up for her return to reality TV. Without giving too much away, the fan-favorite admitted she won't get along with everyone (aka Heather Thomson), but that's just the life of a "professional reality star."

"This is my calling. It feels really comfortable," Frankel admitted while completely acknowledging the ridiculous title.

And in regards to love, Frankel will never, ever (like ever) marry again. But that doesn't mean she can't enjoy life to the fullest.

"I believe in love, I believe in marriage but I just don't believe in legal marriage for myself," she shared. "I do believe in life after love."
