The Real Housewives of New York City star Bethenny Frankel has created quite an empire outside of reality television. The business-savvy housewife took a well-deserved oceanside trip to Italy in late July.

Posting on Instagram in her all-white summer look, she topped it off with a dark, embroidered belt and rose-colored sunglasses. She marked the beginning of her “#SelfCare” trip, where she captioned, “Bon Voyage 🇮🇹 #LetItGo #Ciao” as she begins her break.

Frankel is the founder of Skinnygirl lifestyle/wellness brand which includes products ranging from cocktails to jeans and everything in between. She is additionally the author of four self-help books.


Even after reports of selling Skinnygirl Cocktails to Beam Suntory, Inc. for $100 million, Frankel’s net worth remains unknown to the public but speculation puts it at an estimate of over $55 million.  Forbes even titled a story about her, “Skinny Girl Fat Wallet: How Bethenny Frankel Earns More Than Any Other Real Housewife.”

Frankel has been divorced two times and is the mother to daughter, Brynn Hoppy, 9, whom she had with her ex-husband, Jason Hoppy. The two divorced years back in 2016.

More recently, Frankel was reportedly in an on and off again relationship with her life long-time friend, Dennis Shields, before his sudden death of apparent overdose in August 2018.
