Bethenny Frankel is finally, finally, finally almost divorced. In a new interview with People, she opens up about how intense her three-year divorce proceedings from Jason Hoppy have been for her and their 5-year-old daughter Bryn.

"I feel like I'm on the 18th hole of the golf round now. I feel like we're here," Frankel said of her drawn-out divorce proceedings.

"I feel like justice is being served," said Frankel. "It's being handled the way it should be." But even though the proceedings are ending on a positive note, she will still carry the weight of their intensity, she says.

"It's gone on way too long," she continued. "I feel like I survived something. When it all shakes down, I'll be a woman who has not kind of just felt backed into a corner. I stayed strong and I did what was best for myself, my daughter, for women."

Frankel also shares how she kept her daughter happy throughout the period of courtroom battles. "I think kids need stability and to feel calm and proud of their home," she said. "She's an amazing, amazing little girl. She's so happy. She's not really aware of what's going on, which is great. I'm proud of that. It has been by far the most difficult thing I've ever been though." And, thankfully, it's almost done.
