Bethenny Frankel Opens Up About Mysterious Health Scare!

There's been a lot of controversy surrounding Bethenny Frankel's recent health scare. After going public with it via the trailer for the new season of RHONY, which revealed a need for surgery and Bethenny's emotional request to look into whether she had a living will, the Real Housewives of New York City star is opening up about how her struggle impacted her ability to participate on the Bravo hit reality series.

During a recent interview, Bethenny admitted that her filming will unwell wasn't an attempt at bringing awareness to a cause. "I didn't decide to talk about my health issues on the show. I was on the show and something happened to me, and it just sort of took over," she told E! News. "When you're filming, it's pretty all-intensive and when something hits you, it's not really something you can avoid. It's something that physically affected a lot of the season, and I almost couldn't—well, I actually did. There's some of the season where I had to bow out and stay in bed."

While Bethenny admitted she's a bit uncomfortable with all the attention about her health scare and assured us "I'm going to be OK," she's also hopeful that her on-camera experience may help women watching at home.

"I'm actually glad that it's on the show because it's something that many women can relate to. It's a couple different things going on with me that are all converged to create a bigger problem, and I think many women will relate," she added. "When I had a miscarriage years ago, I didn't really realize how many women have had miscarriages, so this is probably another female issue that many people are quiet about and it will become a little bit more out there and open."

It won't be all scary moments for Bethenny in season eight, a season she considers to be "a really amazing, relateable, real, raw season about just women and what we go through," however. "I'm dating a little bit. It's happens to be in the first episode that I go on a date," she revealed. "I'm flirting a lot bit. I'ma little bit of all show and no go because there's really not that much action."

That said, the idea of growing close to a man who's open to being on reality TV gives Bethenny pause.

"I don't believe I would be attracted to somebody who would want to be on my show," she said. "I have been there and done that, and it hasn't been a very successful proposition for me."
