Former 'Real Housewives of New York City' star, Bethenny Frankel, enriched her Instagram profile with Thanksgiving snapshots featuring her 13-year-old daughter, Bryn Hoppy, her fiance Paul Bernon, and their two pet dogs.
The 53-year-old TV personality showcased the festive spirit of the holiday, complete with family travels, neatly attired for the occasion, and the joyous festivities that ensued.
Despite recently enduring the loss of her interior designer at her Manhattan apartment, Frankel radiated warmth in a chic, black sleeveless knit dress, contrasted with silver jewelry and diamonds. Bryn, her daughter, complemented the scene in a floral blouse and skirt ensemble.
A Day of Laughter and Reflection
Frankel's posts also included a candid video underlining the day's minor setbacks. Adding a touch of humor, she jestingly confessed that her family 'hates' her, coupled with a makeup-free photograph with one of her dogs. The television star also captured a cozy family moment at the dinner table, and a close-up of a golden turkey figurine, highlighting the essence of the celebration.
On another note, Frankel made an appearance on the show 'Who's Talking to Chris Wallace' on Max, discussing her reality TV journey and its profound impact on her life and mental health. Drawing an analogy with drugs, she shed light on the escalating effects of reality TV on society and how it normalizes extreme behavior.
In an unexpected turn of events, Frankel also faced a distressing situation with her Land Rover on Thanksgiving. She brought attention to a potential defect in Land Rover cars, especially when switching between drive and reverse, expressing her dissatisfaction with the brand's customer service.
Overcoming Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome
Delving deeper into her life struggles, Frankel opened up about her battle with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS). She elaborated on her severe dehydration problem, correlating it with her POTS symptoms.
Frankel's candid revelation about her physical suffering and its impact on her appearance was a heartfelt plea for understanding and sensitivity towards comments on someone's physical appearance.
