VIDEO Emotional Bethenny Frankel reveals she recently suffered a miscarriage

Bethenny Frankel admits to miscarriage on the Today Show

Bethenny Frankel has grown an empire by telling it like it is. Her straightforward demeanor hasn’t always set well with everyone but in this vein the reality star got emotional as she revealed to Today that she recently suffered a miscarriage.

She was on Today to do what Bethenny does and promote something she makes money off of, which in this particular instance happened to be the upcoming 3rd season of her show Bethenny Ever After. The interviewer, Savannah Guthrie, asked if she had considered having another child to join her 21-month-old daughter Bryn and she said:

“It’s a very personal question. We [she and husband Jason Hoppy] were pregnant with a second baby, and at eight weeks, I miscarried.”

Here’s the full interview courtesy of Today:

While Frankel obviously felt heartbroken about what happened, she expressed deep sympathy for women that suffer from infertility. Frankel added:

“Thinking about women who can’t even have their first baby … I’m really lucky. Until you become a woman, you don’t know the things that come with it. The window is closing, and it’s something I’m dealing with.”

She did clarify that the miscarriage would not be a part of this season’s story line as it happened quite recently.

Perhaps some things are better left off reality TV. As for her comments on the cobwebs figuratively forming on Jason’s johnson, well, that absolutely should be on the show.

      Thanks Jan – the correction has been made

    Wow, poor Hoppy family. Very heartbreaking.

    Hey Starcasm, with this being such a sensitive issue to blog about can’t you find a nicer picture of Bethenny, & not such a sh*tty one?

      Carsyn – You are correct about the photo and we swapped it out. (We chose the picture of Bethenny, Jason, and their daughter based on a thumbnail image and should have realized once we blew it up that it was unflattering) Thanks!

    I have to say Bethanny handled her miscarriage news on the today show so much beter then Michelle Duggar. Michelle & Bethany were both promoting the new seaaons of their show on the today show. Michelle acted like it was the end of the world and is now showing every bit of her journey on her reality show after Michelle begged for privacy. I appreciate bethany asking for privacy and not showing it on on her show. I also liked how bethany appreciates the one child she has and said she feels bad for those that cant even have one. Michelle Duggar “mom” of 19 could learn something from Bethany mother of 1.
