Hi Bethenny!I was actually on your show her in LA over the summer (Dating Bootcamp). I was the one on the show who was a single mom, in law and grad school.I was so sad to hear about your divorce. I've been there. My son was actually 3 months old at the time (2006). It will hurt but it will get better! Do not focus on how this looks to the public and whether you are a failure. You live your life, you look yourself in the mirror, you put your head on the bed. At the end of the day, do what is best for YOU and your daughter.
It was hard for me to come to terms with my divorce. Raise in a Christian home, in a family of 6, no one has ever been divorced...parents married for 46 yrs. I was criticized, I lost friends, I felt like a failure. But again...at the end of the day...it's what is the best for your and your child. THAT'S IT! Surround yourself with positive people (and stay away from Jill! hahahahaha)
I wish you all the best with your show in NY!
