Bethenny Frankel, who’s going through her second divorce, has made her share of relationship mistakes but has learned from them.
Frankel said you should listen to your gut before committing yourself emotionally to someone, and underscored that compatibility is critical for long-term relationship success.
“Everyone always talks about going with your head or your heart but I think you should go with your gut,” Bethenny told People April 9. “Your heart might be telling you, ‘I love this person. I love sex with this person,’ but you might not be compatible. And your head can say this person is great on paper, but your gut can tell you when something is off.”
Frankel shares her relationship and love advice and recounts dating horror stories in her new self-help book, I Suck At Relationships So You Don’t Have To. “I learn more from my mistakes than my successes,” said Bethenny.
Frankel, star of The Real Housewives of New York City, has lost weight recently and admitted that at 115 pounds, she is skinny but that’s part of her brand.
Yeah, I am thin,” Bethenny told the “Today Show.” “I have a brand called Skinnygirl, so it’s not a big giant mystery. You can’t please everybody. You try to please everybody and you end up pleasing nobody.”
Frankel continued, “Sometimes I do agree that I look too thin, especially when I’m tired, especially when I’m haggard. I do eat. There are nutritionists that comment that I don’t even weigh 100 pounds. I weigh 115 pounds.”
In 2011, Bethenny admitted she had struggled with anorexia, bulimia and laxative abuse for decades, Examiner reported. “Until my early 30s, I spent my entire life being obsessed with dieting,” said Frankel. “Bingeing and then fasting or starving. I used to forbid myself from everything. That’s how I used to be: up and down five pounds every single day, to the extremes.”
After spending two decades being obsessed with weight loss, diet and exercise, Bethenny is more relaxed about her body. Frankel detailed her fitness secrets in her book, Naturally Thin.
Frankel said she no longer suffers from anorexia and bulimia, but is thinner than ever. The 5-foot-6 Bethenny said she stays fit by following a portion-controlled diet and doing yoga workouts.
