"THS: Bethenny Frankel" Premieres September 21 at 10:00 PM ET/PT Only on E!

Los Angeles, September 14, 2011 - When audiences were first introduced to straight-shooting and single Bethenny Frankel on a new reality series about housewives in the Big Apple, no one suspected the mogul this woman would become. In the all-new one hour "THS: Bethenny Frankel," E! reveals how a skinny girl from a broken home became New York's most outspoken and respected housewife. In addition to being a reality TV star on a hugely popular franchise, Frankel's resume also includes New York Times best selling author, renowned chef, business mogul, nutrition guru, and dedicated mother. In an exclusive sit-down interview with THS, Frankel takes E! on the emotional rollercoaster that is her life.

Despite a tumultuous relationship with her mother and feeling neglected by both her father and step-dad, Frankel explains how she eventually found herself and love. Although, as Frankel explains, the road traveled was anything but easy. Though her life has been turbulent, Frankel tells THS that her most difficult struggle has always been loving herself and finding someone to love forever, "I kept beating myself up saying, 'What is wrong with you? You've now had three chances to be married to amazing guys who love you, who can take care of you and yet you keep running away from it.'" She adds, "I can't hold down a relationship and I keep breaking hearts and I thought there was something wrong with me." In addition to interviews with Frankel, THS speaks exclusively with those closest to the fiery star including her husband Jason Hoppy, childhood friends, her mother-in-law, and former "Real Housewives of New York City" castmate Sonja Morgan.

Select quotes from the episode include:

"I wanted to be thin so badly. I was obsessed. I would take laxatives from my mother's drawer. If I could have ever made myself sick, I would have. Being thin was a very, very big goal." - Bethenny Frankel

"I didn't wanna' be getting facials and buying diamonds with the housewives. I have $8,000 to my name and I have no idea what's gonna' happen to me financially, emotionally or any way." - Bethenny Frankel on struggling to make a name for herself outside of reality TV

"I'm like, this woman is neurotic." - husband Jason Hoppy

"He said, 'You know I want to spend the rest of my life with you. I love you. You are the one,' and it was an incredible moment for both of us." - Bethenny Frankel on Jason Hoppy's proposal

"My stepfather and mother would get into some really gnarly fights. The cops would come and then the next day they'd be having sex." - Bethenny Frankel

"Hidden behind all the bigness and the magnetism was kind of this scared little child." - Amy Kalikow, childhood friend

"I tortured myself. I was very depressed. I was very thin. I didn't want to eat, I didn't want to shop. I was very snappy. It just felt like, I'm married to this man that I really love but I just don't think he's the one forever." - Bethenny Frankel on her first marriage

"Every day was a diet. Every Monday was we're starting over. Every Sunday was we're binging. It was always a vicious cycle." - Bethenny Frankel

"I found a woman I want to be with and I want her to be the mother of my children." - Jason Hoppy
