Bethenny Frankel's split from husband Jason Hoppy is taking its toll on the ususally strong-willed reality star. Exhibit A: Frankel's appearance on Ellen, which airs today.
"As I can see you are already getting emotional. You could've canceled easily," Ellen DeGeneres told Frankel. "You were booked for this show and you could of easily canceled...These are just some of the magazine [holds up a stack of magazines] that you're on the cover of and that's got to hurt like hell to have to deal with that."
"It's difficult. Well, first of all, yeah. Do I want to be doing this exact thing right now? No, but I can't just only be on reality TV and show everything when it's fairy princess, fairytale and then not take my hits when I have to," Frankel responded.
"I've kind of had the best worst year ever. So I have to you know, it's the highs and the lows. Does this [the magazines] especially bother me? No, but dealing with that plus personal stuff at the same time is very surreal thing. Just going through something personal you have so many different emotions and I feel like a bit of a disappointment to all of you. And, I feel like a failure."
