Real Housewives of New York City star Bethenny Frankel is opening up about her new book I Suck At Relationships. Frankel reveals what motivated her to write this book and explains how she has the power to help other people.
“I think that so many people claim to be experts on relationships,” Bethenny explains in this exclusive video obtained by AllThingsRH. “So many matchmakers aren’t married or end up getting divorced. You can’t really be an expert on relationships, because each person’s background is different and no two relationships are alike.”
“I think that I have made some mistakes, but I have the ability to be self-aware and realize the things that I’m doing wrong doesn’t necessarily mean I can’t correct them in due time,” Frankel continues. “It means a good relationship is like an island and I see it, but I’m not exactly sure how to get there. But I’m very good at helping other people with their relationships.”
“I would think building a strong relationship is about acceptance,” Bethenny says. “It’s about having someone that your passionate about but also friends with that you respect.”
So after all she’s been through, does Bethenny still believe in love?
“I totally believe in finding love,” she admits. “Everybody you meet is an opportunity to love, to learn, to grow… for passion, to get excited, to want to look pretty, to have sex, to just enjoy.”
“I’m a work in progress,” Bethenny says. “Writing this book made me very aware of some of the things that I’ve done because many of my business failures have helped other people succeed in their lives and I’ve learned the most from my business from my failures, so why wouldn’t I learn the most from my relationships from my failures?”
“If all of these failures and mistakes I’ve made could help me in the future have a great relationship, then it will all have been worth it.”
