Newly-minted talk show host Bethenny Frankel is using her latest platform to shoot down rumors that her marriage to Jason Hoppy is on the rocks.
On Monday's premiere, the reality show star addresses the divorce buzz swirling around as she moderates a “men’s panel” segment featuring Kevin Nealon, D.L. Hughley and Mike Catherwood.
When Catherwood asks how things are at home, the 41-year-old former "Real Housewives of New York City" cast member offers a frank response.
"The real question is...I hate to be the guy who deals with the elephant in the room. How are you doing?" Catherwood says. "I'm hearing the 'D' word, divorce thrown around a lot."
"Oh, I forgot. Yes, I've seen a divorce lawyer. My husband's seen a divorce lawyer," Frankel jokes before replying with more seriousness.
"It's Hollywood," she says. "I have not seen a divorce lawyer. My husband hasn't seen a divorce lawyer."
Viewers can expect to see her "put it all out there" on the show, Frankel adds. "The truth is ... I'm in a good marriage. We have issues. We are not perfect. We work on it everyday. We're committed."
Her show "Bethenny" debuts June 11 on Fox in select markets.
