Bethenny Frankel has always been rather candid about her personal life, but that could all change soon. It’s no secret the reality TV star and her husband Jason Hoppy, 40, have been close to ending their marriage—the final season of Bethenny Ever After showcased the couple’s problems this past year, but she’s fighting to save it and opens up about what she’s willing to do to make her relationship last.
"We've been scared," Frankel, 41 tells People. "The second year of marriage was not easy. We hit bottom, [but] we came out the other side I think we have what it takes to make it work. I don't have a backup plan. It's not like shopping for shoes and getting a new pair. That's not what it's about."
The TV personality recently went back to NYC after shooting a six-week test run of her new talk show Bethenny in L.A. and said she’s ready to not air her dirty laundry anymore.
"I'm done with putting my personal life and family on reality television. I went all the way, and I think it may be enough. Enough about me," she said.
The former Real Housewives of New York City star admitted she’s happy with where she’s at in life and thrilled about her latest job.
"It's the right thing for me — and for us," she told People. "I love talking to women about what's going on with them."
So don’t expect to see Bethenny in front of cameras for the rest of the summer. She’s going to spend the next few weeks hanging out with her hubby and their daughter, Bryn 2, at a beach house away from the public eye.
"I'm in lockdown," she joked. "I'm finally ready to become a housewife."
