With both a new season of the year (yay, spring!) and of her Bravo reality show, Bethenny Ever After, around the corner (Mondays, 9 p.m. ET/PT), we thought we’d ask Bethenny Frankel about what tops her to-do list. For starters, she’s hosting a new talk show on Fox this summer. Here’s what the former Real Housewives star, New York Times best-selling author, “SkinnyGirl” entrepreneur, wife and mother to daughter Bryn, 21 months, told us about her ...
New addition. “We’re trying [to have another baby]. I’m a little more lax than someone at 41 probably should be.”
Talk show. She says topics will cover money, sex, marriage “and everything. It’s kind of what my show does, but this could be a dialogue rather than just showing what I’m doing.”
Spring cleaning. It’s on her list “every single day,” says the notorious neatnik. “I’m an obsessive editor. When you have a baby, it’s always a mess. Since I like to control my environment, that’s been a big challenge.”
Spring indulgence. The maker of SkinnyGirl products says she doesn’t resist cake and ice cream — in moderation. “My entire platform is about indulging. Women deprive constantly. I indulge every day. No one ever got fat off one cookie.”
Spring workout. She’s a yoga nut. “Ever since having my baby, I want to be efficient with my time. When she naps, I do 40 minutes of yoga. I wish I could just walk out of here and go to yoga for an hour and 15 minutes.”
Applying to preschool. Frankel hasn’t bought into the school-application madness yet. “We’re not caught up in the fancy private schools. We want to be able to walk her to school.”
Go-to gadget. She’s a “CrackBerry” gal, even writing her books and articles on it. “I have the iPad — it doesn’t matter to me. The only thing I care about is my BlackBerry.”
