Bethenny Frankel: ‘I’m taking a long break’ after writing children’s book

Bethenny Frankel’s talk show is wrapping up in a few weeks and people are waiting to see what she will do now. There have been rumors that she is returning to “The Real Housewives of New York” and filming her own show once again for Andy Cohen’s own company. However, it sounds like she doesn’t have too many plans to return to television. In fact, she will be hiding out at home, focusing on her daughter and her dog. According to a new report, Bethenny Frankel is now revealing that she is planning on taking a big break after her talk show wraps next month.

Of course, she has been in the spotlight because of her talk show. But she does have one more project in mind before hiding out in New York. She had been spending time with her daughter when she wasn’t filming the show. And during this time, she had written a children’s book. "I'm taking a really long break right now — I want to focus on my Skinnygirl brand and my daughter," Bethenny says. "I've been working so hard for so long, and I just really want to rest and enjoy and just kind of be."

The book will be called “Cookie and Peanut” and is inspired by her daughter. "She's the Peanut, and my dog's the Cookie," Bethenny reveals. "I'm reading her the book, and she's kind of helping me with the story. She likes it — it's really cute and she loves a good children's book.” The book will be out in September, but one can imagine that Bethenny will continue to build her business in her new apartment.
