Bethenny Frankel ended her marriage to Jason Hoppy at the end of 2012, and this year has been spent putting the pieces back together. And she's the first to admit things haven't been easy.
"It's rough," she said on Good Day New York Thursday (via Us Weekly). "I have to say, divorce is the most difficult thing you could ever go through in your entire life."
The former reality star added: "I never heard how excruciating it is."
The Skinnygirl founder also said divorce in general is a "brutal, unnatural situation," but she's been working through it. The couple's 2-year-old daughter Bryn has been a big help. "Kids make you do things you'd never do," Frankel said. "They bring out the best in you."
