"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.
