The Real Housewives of New York City star Bethenny Frankel is embracing her past mistakes. The author of, I Suck At Relationships So You Don’t Have To, recently shared advice to couples who are having relationship troubles. Bethenny is in the middle of her on going divorce from ex Jason Hoppy, and is using her failed relationships as both a learning and teaching opportunity.
Bethenny recently made an appearance on the Steve Harvey show, where two couples volunteered to received advice from Bethenny. Via Reality Tea, Bethenny admitted, “I’ve learned more from my mistakes then by successes.” She shares how she feels about her current dating status saying, “I’m really happy right now. Or at least I’m going to be happy forever.”
The first couple consisted of a husband who was alienating his health. Bethenny advised, “You can’t just take a relationship for granted. You have to do the work. You want to set good examples; kids copy? every single thing you do. Everything. When you choose to have a child, you choose to make them more important than you. That is your legacy. So, forgetting you – it’s about your child. You have to pull your shit together!”
The second couple were dating for three years and the boyfriend was unsure about proposing. Bethenny advised to the girlfriend that she should be patient saying, “We as women want the ring more than anything! We don’t think about the whole picture! Men think more logically. You have to wait for the right moment. Engagements mean the train has left the station. Just because you jump in someone’s bed you have to marry them? You have to know if you’re going to get along with somebody. There’s gotta be a point where you grab your balls.”
However, it worked out for the couple because the boyfriend ultimately proposed right on the show.
