With the premiere of Bethenny Frankel's talk show just a few days away, it seems that the former "Real Housewife" is ready to start a new chapter of her life and leave the negativity surrounding her divorce from Jason Hoppy behind her.

Frankel recently sat down with Extra's AJ Calloway and told him that although her divorce has been a hard on her, she is in the process of healing.

“I'm better now. I mean, I'm much, much better," she said. "You know, you can't sit around and be angry."

Frankel revealed that she wants to use her new talk show as a way to connect with other women struggling with aspects of their lives as well.

“I know so many women who are going to be watching the show are going to be going through difficult things and we'll go through it together,” she said.

Frankel filed for divorce from Hoppy in January 2013 after nearly three years of marriage. The pair have a daughter together.
