— -- After a three-season hiatus, Bethenny Frankel is coming back to "Real Housewives of New York," but from the looks of the Season 7 trailer, she's a little more humbled.

"It's like starting over," Frankel tells her therapist in a teaser for the new season, posted exclusively by Us Weekly. "Failed talk show, failed marriage."

Frankel is returning to the show that first made her a star, after starring in her own reality show spin-off, in which she married Jason Hoppy and had a baby daughter, and hosting her eponymous talk show, which was canceled last February, after less than a year.

Since filing for divorce from Hoppy in January, 2013, the Skinnygirl founder has struggled.

"My divorce has made me a vulnerable person," Frankel says in the trailer.

Later, she's seen in the trailer with tears in her eyes, saying, "I don't want the same life back, I just want a new life."

But there's still a lot of snark left in Frankel, as the trailer shows her clashing with the other housewives.
