Bethenny Frankel Breaks Down over 'Torturous' Divorce: 'I Don't Know Why I'm Being Punished'


People.com:
Another trip to the Berkshires, another “blackout” breakdown by Bethenny Frankel.

On Wednesday’s all-new Real Housewives of New York City, the 46-year-old Skinnygirl mogul was brought to tears when discussing her “torturous” divorce from ex-husband Jason Hoppy.

The moment came after Frankel — and fellow Housewives Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, Carole Radziwill, Dorinda Medley and Tinsley Mortimer — confronted Luann D’Agostino about her upcoming wedding to Tom D’Agostino, Jr. amid new allegations of infidelity they had heard about her husband-to-be.

“I don’t want to hear this bulls— anymore. I’m done,” Luann told the girls in response. “I’m not going to change [a 50-year-old man] from who he was. I don’t have to explain myself.”

“I wouldn’t walk down that aisle unless it was 100 percent — this is real,” she continued — bringing up the makeout Tom engaged in at the Regency Hotel the day before their Palm Beach engagement party, which almost derailed their relationship. “Did he make a mistake? Yes. Am I confident that isn’t going to happen again? Absolutely. Tom and I are confident in who we are and we trust each other. And that’s all that matters to us. I’m a grown woman — I know what I’m doing.”

But that’s not what set Frankel off. No, it was later in the evening when Luann gave advice about finding love — suggesting women go with their heart, gut and instinct instead of trying to find a man that meets their criteria.

“Luann, my heart and gut and instinct got me in the toilet bowl,” Frankel said, reflecting on Hoppy and their contentious divorce battle. “The worst situation of my entire life. I’m literally in a dungeon and torture chamber, and that is because I just went with my heart and my gut and could never have imagined what happened. That is real.”
