Bethenny Frankel revealed how she's coping following her split from ex-fiancé Paul Bernon, especially after he was seen moving on with Aurora Culpo.

“Hearing about your ex-fiancé committing to another woman shortly thereafter on their first date, and then being inside their relationship hearing about their s-- and their gifts and meeting each other’s kids and the level of commitment,” the reality star, 53, shared on her “Just B With Bethenny” podcast on Sunday, July 7.

“It was gutting. It was brutal," she added, referring to how Bernon, 45, and Culpo, 35, being seen together.

Bethenney Frankel spoke out about her split from Paul Bernon.

Though Frankel "initiated" the split, she said it's still "embarrassing" and "rough."

“Being portrayed as the jilted ex who had been upgraded from — that my ex had moved on from me with a younger woman — and that it regurgitated the continuous narrative that he is a very under-the-radar person who had now gotten serious with someone,” she admitted. “When, ironically, I was the very-under-the-radar person.”

Frankel then said Culpo shouldn't have displayed her new romance just yet.

“If you’re the new woman in a relationship you need to tread lightly and be cautious about whoever the woman before you was because we’ve all been in both positions,” Frankel stated. “I think by sharing all the details of your new relationship, you’re disrespecting the last relationship.”
