She may be embroiled in one of the dirtiest divorces in entertainment history, but Bethenny Frankel still felt like dishing out some marriage advice on her talk show.
“You don’t have to marry the love of your life,” the single mother said. “I know who the love of my life is and I’m not married to that person.”
Bethenny was briefly married in the 1990s and is now divorcing her second husband, Jason Hoppy. She was engaged a number of other times. Still, there’s one former boyfriend she can’t stop comparing the others to.
“Did anyone ever see the movie The Way We Were? Barbra Streisand and Robert Redford, they were the love of each other’s lives but that doesn’t mean it’s going to work so do not spend the rest of your life fantasizing,” Bethenny said. “It’s chasing the dragon, drug addicts do that, to chase that one original high, and you are never going to get that.”
Even though she’s still infatuated with one former flame, Bethenny concedes things worked out for the best.
“I was the love of this person’s life too, but we would not have worked in a marriage.”
