Bethenny Frankel Reveals She’s Battling a Health Scare, Is Exploring a ‘Living Will’

frankel

Yesterday, Jewish reality TV star Bethenny Frankel opened up about how she’s struggling with “a women’s health issue that many women can relate to” in PEOPLE. The 45-year-old did not talk much more about the mysterious illness, however. Frankel is famous for starring on “Real Housewives of New York,” so we’re sure this is going to be a hot topic on the upcoming season, as she stated:

“I’m dealing with it head on and viewers will understand how I personally deal with matters such as this. I hope women can relate, learn and support each other in life moments like this.”

Frankel also mentioned that she does need to have “surgery,” and is currently about to “explore a living will” in a recent trailer for RHONY, which does make this whole thing seem like a gross way to use a health scare as a marketing tactic, as pointed out by Jezebel. Either way, we do wish Bethenny a speedy recovery. Bethenny is also a mom to her daughter Bryn, who she gave birth to in 2010.

RHONY is premiering on April 6th, so stay tuned (or not).
