Bethenny Frankel on ‘Ellen’: ‘I feel like a failure’ after ending marriage to Jason Hoppy (VIDEO)

Real Housewives of New York Bethenny Frankel says she feels like a failure on the Ellen DeGeneres show on Wednesday after announcing divorce plans from Jason Hoppy
The reality TV star shed tears and sought comfort on Ellen Degeneres' show. ‘I’m scared. But it’s about what I do next,’ she said.

An emotional Bethenny Frankel sat down with Ellen DeGeneres to talk about her recent divorce. Instead of canceling her scheduled appearance Wednesday, Frankel decided to open up to the talk-show host about her failed marriage.

"Do I want to be doing this exact thing right now?" she said. "No. But I can't just be on reality TV when it's the fairy tale and then not take my hits when I have to."

"I feel like a disappointment to all of you,” she added, reaching for tissues. “I feel like a failure,"

Uncertain: The 42-year-old businesswoman said she is sad and scared of the future
DeGeneres and the audience immediately showed their support, disagreeing with her statement.

"You are not a failure," the host said. "I know you, you're my friend… I know you did not want this to happen."

Frankel, the savvy businesswoman and creator of the Skinnygirl brand, recently announced her divorce from husband of three years Jason Hoppy. The couple has a 2-year-old daughter named Bryn.

"I'm scared," Frankel said. "But it's about what I do next… how I handle myself with grace and dignity, and this is the time that matters."

The reality star said that she understand her fans feel cheated after she starred in show looking for love
DeGeneres then comforts her by reminding it could be good content for Frankel’s daytime talk-show ‘Bethenny.’

Before it went sour: Bethenny, Jason and their two-year-old daughter Bryn out in New York last year
"I'm going to have bad days," Frankel said. "But the ones that I do have I'll go through that with the audience, and vice versa. It's going to be a journey and that's going to get me through this."

"That could be your new slogan," the cheerful host suggests, "share your bad day with me."

"The Bethenny Show, it's a crappy day every day!" Frankel joked, lightening the mood.
