Bethenny Frankel Shuts Down Romance Rumors, Compares Dating to “Having Food Poisoning”

Former Real Housewives of New York star and current talk show host, business woman, and single mom Bethenny Frankel went through a very painful and very public divorce over the past year, so of course there are already rumors that she's jumped back into the dating pool. But if you ask Bethenny, a new man is the last thing on her mind.

Wetpaint Entertainment recently had a chance to catch up with the star after a Bethenny tapping, and she made it clear that she's not interested in a new man right now.

"It's just like having food poisoning and not wanting to eat again," Bethenny said when asked what she's looking for in a man now. "It's like one of those things you kind of think you 'should' be doing — I should be working out, I should be dating, or I should be entertaining that. In theory it sounds somewhat appetizing, but in reality it doesn't seem to be all that interesting to me right now."

She also got very serious, admitting that divorce was harder than she ever could have imagined.

"I honestly did not have any idea how difficult, to say the very least, it could be." Of course, it didn't help that she was in the public eye, which added a whole other layer of frustration, "because people don't know the whole story... People probably know about 10 percent of the story, and I can't share the story, and it's intense, so that can be a little frustrating."

Fortunately, Bethenny has more than a few things to keep her busy, man or no man. There's Bethenny, her talk show, and her ever expanding SkinnyGirl line (she recently added several wines — Prosecco, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, and Cabernet Sauvignon — to her wine collection). And, of course, there's her most important job: being an awesome mom. With all that awesome stuff going on, who even has time for dating?
