Life isn't easy, even for Real Housewives of New York City. Just ask Bethenny Frankel, an alum of the Bravo series who is still experiencing the fallout from her December 2012 split with hubby Jason Hoppy.

"It's been hard," she touts in Life & Style's new issue, while hyping her upcoming talk show. "It's been difficult to stay sane."

One such hardness? Not being able to escape your ex. Neither Bethenny nor Jason have relinquished the NYC apartment they shared.

"For every rough thing, there's a reason for it, and there's a reason you had those struggles. When you're going through a rough time, you have to say, 'I know I'm going through these hard things, and even though it's difficult to see it clearly…the light is coming at the end of it.'"

Such light includes Bethenny, which premieres September 8 — and for which she says she's shooting six episodes a week — and her three-year-old daughter, Bryn.

Keep soldiering on, Bethenny!
