Bethenny Frankel is continuing to open up about life after filing for divorce from hubby Jason Hoppy.

The 42-year-old former Real Housewives of New York star says she's still adjusting to post-split life with 3-year-old daughter Bryn.

"I think being a single mom has its drawbacks and stresses, but when I'm with Bryn, I get to be with her all by myself," Frankel told E! News exclusively at her SkinnyGirl Daily workout event in Central Park over the weekend.

"We have quality time," she continued. "And when I'm on my own I'm trying to find out who I am again, what my identity is as a single woman. So that's an exploration also."

Frankel, whose divorce from Hoppy has not yet been finalized, is optimistic when it comes to the future.

"I do believe in love. I always have and I always will," she dished, adding, "But if love comes in different places. Right now my love for my daughter is the most important thing. But I believe in good people."
