A week after the news broke that her daytime talk show “Bethenny” has been axed after only one season, the former reality television star wrote an open letter to her fans, expressing her “relief” over the cancellation of the show.
I don’t know about you, but if I were to lose a job, I would be anything but relieved.
Bethenny wrote on her official site: “I felt a bit diluted, filtered and somewhat constricted,” Frankel, 43, says. “I am a free spirit. My late father (a horse trainer) used to say, ‘She is a mustang. You need to let her run.'”
“So to answer how I feel, I am relieved. What I really want right now is to be with my daughter, to do yoga, to focus on Skinnygirl and my writing, and to give myself a break.”
She also added: “I have been striving and climbing and white-knuckling for so long that I need a rest from the grind. I’m a little over myself and wouldn’t blame anyone else for being over me as well.”
With all the different hats she wears, I don’t blame Bethenny for wanting to take a break from the spotlight. Even with the cancellation of the show, there’s no denying that Bethenny is a very successful woman, if not the most successful star to come out of the Real Housewives franchise. Knowing Bethenny, she’s not going to sit down and sulk for too long. While she does have her critics, her fans also applaud her for her honesty and “tell it like it is” personality.
I have a feeling that this “break” from the public spotlight won’t be too long for her.
Tell us Babble readers, what do you think of Bethenny being axed from daytime television? Were you a fan of her talk show?
