What Bethenny Frankel has to say

Bethenny Frankel is known for her comical one-liners and sassy sayings. And her quotes aren't just funny — they are often thought provoking. Let's take a look at some of our favorite Bethenny-isms.

We first fell in love with Bethenny Frankel on The Real Housewives of New York City, and now we'll be seeing a lot more of her. Her daytime talk show, Bethenny, premieres on Sept. 9 after a summer test run in select cities.

Bethenny always has something interesting to say — whether she's talking about fashion, relationships, self-image or any other topic. Here are some of the best Bethenney-ims — learn 'em, love 'em and live 'em.

1

"Where's the line? And then cross it a little bit."

Dare to step outside your comfort zone. Think outside the box. Break the rules every once in a while — even just a little bit.

2

"There is no judgment here. I just want to talk about it."

Bethenny is never afraid to express herself. She's real about where she's been, what she's done and where she's going. On Bethenny, we expect no judgments — and a lot of great conversation.

3

"Why are we so unhappy about our bodies?"

Ahh, yes, the question of self-image. So many women are so unhappy with their bodies. We come in all shapes and sizes, and we are all beautiful. Flaunt what you've got!

4

"If our hair doesn't look good, we're in a bad mood."

How we look isn't everything — but it matters to women. You know that feeling you get when you just got the perfect blowout or a new dye job? Try to capture that feeling every day.

5

"If I see a pair of shoes on sale I want, I will make them fit. I will cut off a toe."

Women love their shoes and will do anything to get the "perfect" pair — even if they are a little small.

6

"I disagree with myself!"

Don't we all! When it comes to decision making, we all encounter some self-conflict.

7

"You need to not be a doormat."

Bethenny is always frank when it comes to relationships, empowering women in her honest — often humorous — way. And she's right: You don't need to be anyone's doormat.

8

"If I made it, you can make it."

Bethenny didn't achieve her success because everything was handed to her. She worked hard to get to where she's gotten today. If you have a dream — pursue it.

9

"You have to pull yourself up by your bootstraps and get busy."

Even if you are going through a tough time or have met with some setbacks, no need to feel sorry for yourself. "Pull yourself up by the bootstraps." In other words, get up and try again!

10

"Everybody out of the way!"

Bethenny is no wallflower. She's a strong, confident woman who pursues her goals with gusto and style. Get out of her way because here she comes!

11

"I'm just so lucky. So lucky."

We are all lucky in different ways. Being grateful sometimes is difficult. We get caught up in the day-to-day grind and forget about all the blessings that we have in our lives. We are all "so lucky."

12

"We're all being therapists when we go out with our friends."

Every woman needs her BFFs. Stay-at-home moms and successful celebrities like Bethenny have something in common: They all need each other. Be willing to lend an ear (or a shoulder to cry on) whenever your friends need it.

13

"It's not about being the most beautiful woman."

Bethenny gives us a little reminder that looks aren't the most important thing in the world. As this Bethenny-ism goes, "It's not about being the most beautiful woman. It's about being the most interesting woman in the room." Preach on, Bethenny!

14

"We've come a long way, baby."

Of course, Bethenny didn't coin the phrase, but she owns it. It's one of our favorite Bettheny-isms. Yes, we've come a long way — and we are still going strong.

15

"This show is about you."

In talking about her show, Bethenny, Frankel says, "This show is about you. This is about us. This is about going on a journey together. This is about talking about the things you talk about to your girlfriends when no one else is listening. About sex, about your marriage, about raising children, about balancing it all, about grooming, about what men think, about everything."

Sounds great. We can't wait for the premiere.
