Bethenny Frankel’s talk show became just another daytime casualty earlier this month. But before you shed any tears for this former Real Housewife, you should know she’s SUPER happy to be canceled!
K, maybe she’s not happy about not returning to TV, but Bethenny says she is relieved to finally have some free time. She explained to her fans why she’s staying so positive in an open letter on her web site.
"I am relieved. What I really want right now is to be with my daughter, to do yoga, to focus on Skinnygirl and my writing, and to give myself a break. I have been striving and climbing and white-knuckling for so long that I need a rest from the grind. I'm a little over myself and wouldn't blame anyone else for being over me as well.”
Well we certainly aren’t over you, gurl! We know talent when we see it and you’ve got the goods, for SURE!
Having her own talk show also gave B. Frank some extra respect for the woman who co-created and produced her series: Ellen DeGeneres!
These two may have had some mini tiffs this past season but now that what’s done is done, Bethenny has nothing but kind words for Ellen.
"As easy as people like Ellen, Oprah, Wendy, Rachael and Steve make it look, it is one of the hardest jobs I have ever done, and I have so much more respect for them having been through this experience. They are warriors and champions who make a very difficult job look effortless.”
So, you may not have what it takes to be a Daytime Queen. It’s better to have tried and failed than to have never tried at all!
Enjoy your yoga, your writing, and of course little Bryn! We can’t wait to see what your next project will be!
