Although Bethenny has her successful Skinnygirl empire (and Housewives salary!), she lives in and out of hotels. “I’m the wealthiest homeless person in Manhattan,” she confessed. “I’ve gone through a very public divorce and my old apartment in Tribeca is currently occupied. I feel like I’m in purgatory.”

While her estranged husband gets to live in her Tribeca apartment, Bethenny explained that she does have an apartment of her own that’s currently being renovated. “I have a daughter and I need to have a home that is ours,” she shared.

Currently in a heated custody battle over their 4-year-old daughter Bryn, Bethenny admitted to LuAnn de Lesseps that she wishes she were friends with her ex! “I had fantasies of it being that way,” she said. “This is a stranger, a person that I wouldn’t even talk to on the street. That’s very sad.”

Despite her hardships, nothing brought her to tears more than when she opened up about wanting to have a second child. “I’ll watch a movie and I’ll see a baby and I’ll be like, ‘I’m on the last legs of being able to do that, if at all,’” she cried.

But don’t expect Bethenny to welcome another bundle of joy anytime soon. “If I had everything together maybe I would say, ‘Okay, you know what? I’m a woman, I’m alone and I can do it on my own,’" the Bravo star said. “But I don’t even have a place to live for the daughter that I do have.”
