Bethenny Frankel Explains Why She Doesn’t Have a Nanny for her Daughter

RHONY star Bethenny Frankel recently talked about why she doesn’t have a nanny for her daughter Bryn, who is now 7 years-old.

“I’m proud that I don’t have a nanny and that when I am with my daughter, I’m 100 percent with her,” Bethenny told PEOPLE, adding, “So when I work, I work. And when I’m with my child, I’m with my child. I spend a lot of intense time alone with my kid.”

Bethenny then talked about her dedication to being a good mom. “I know there’s no perfect parent, and I’m very involved and very present. I love it. If you love something, you’ll be good at it,” Bethenny said. “So I love being a mother more than anything in the world, and I think what you put into your kids, you get out. And I’m seeing that that really is true.”

    This “damaged piece of work” poses in her daughters Pj’s on social media (look at me.. anorexic/bulemic little old me)! How “sick” and narcissistic is that! This woman is a “cry” for help! Now she wants a medal for “not having a nanny”! It just makes you sick! That little girl needs her daddy and grandparents “normalcy” to combat the psychotic self-absorbed mother!

    I think Bethenny is one of the most admiral women on any HW show. There are others, but I have liked her since she made the finals of Martha Stewart’s one season of “The Apprentice.” Then while channel surfing, I caught the 1st season reunion of NY housewives. That was my very first introduction to HW. There was no mistaking Bethenny, she is very unique in her looks and her being. I believe she loves Bryn more than life, and does her absolute best. Kids now when they are loved and safe. Her psychopath ex is another story. I watched all 3 seasons of her spin-off, which showed a different side of her and I laughed a lot.
    I think Dorinda is the most beautiful of all the housewives ever, period. I’m happy her and B made up from the drunk insults.

      Hi 3D’s,
      I’m a B fan also, sometimes more than other times, lol.
      I find it refreshing that she doesn’t have a nanny and speaks volumes to me on how she is as a mother!
      NY is my favorite franchise!! To me, they’re more real than the others and not as nasty to one another.
      And I love me some Dorinda, drunk or sober!! I’m glad her and B patched things up so quickly.

    The RHONY are my favorite. They get into it, but they are not vicious. There relationships seem real. I have always liked Bethenny. She has worked hard to get where she is, but my favorite is her being a good mother.
