Bethenny Frankel Is 'Relieved' Her Talk Show Got Canceled

The former reality star opens up about what's next.

Feb. 25, 2014 -- Bethenny Frankel is starting over, and that's not necessarily a bad thing, she said.

Just days after the news broke that her talk show, "Bethenny" had been canceled, Frankel wrote a letter to her fans explaining how she was doing.

There's certainly a lot on her plate.

Frankel, 43, is not only in the throes of a new romance, but she's also still in the midst of a an acrimonious divorce.

In August, she told "Nightline" that she was "going through a brutal, brutal time" after her split from ex-husband Jason Hoppy, especially as the two attempted to work out a custody agreement for their daughter, Bryn, 3.

However, Frankel also admitted that being a talk show host wasn't the best move for her.

"Unlike my time on Bravo, I felt a bit diluted, filtered and somewhat constricted. I am a free spirit," she wrote. "I am more comfortable in my natural surroundings and in a setting where I'm surrounded by crazy, where anything goes and where I can be authentically me. When interviewed about the show, I always said that it could only work if I was true to myself and only if it was genuinely a good fit and marriage which it turned out not to be."

Still, she said she's ready to take a break.

"I have been striving and climbing and white-knuckling for so long that I need a rest from the grind," she said. "I'm a little over myself and wouldn't blame anyone else for being over me as well."
