Bethenny Frankel is such a boss.
The television personality, who used her platform on Real Housewives of New York to build an empire, covers the Summer 2012 of Michigan Avenue magazine sporting a Façonnable Cotton and viscose sweater with The Katie skirt from Elie Tahari, paired with a Poppy belt and pumps by Gio Diev.
In the issue, Frankel dishes on everything from her daughter Bryn to her talk show, which is slated to debut in July.
On her years living in Chicago: “I really didn’t know anybody. I would go to the East Bank Club and try to stretch my workout as long as I could, just to have something to do during the day. You could really kind of hang out there. I don’t have any place like that in New York. It was a transitional time. I really didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life. But I knew it was time to hit my stride. It may seem bizarre, but when I think of Chicago, I think of omelets. I miss the omelets.”
On her new talk show “Bethenny”: “It’s important to have a point of view… Being honest, being relatable, having fun…being me.”
On what she keeps away from the cameras: “The interaction with the baby on camera is very limited. That’s just not a choice that she is old enough to make.” She considers being there for Bryn her “biggest success.”
On always traveling with her daughter: “I’m able to be with her for every meal, every bath. I’m there when she wakes up from every nap. I think that’s definitely what my definition of success is.”
