Bethenny Frankel is ''happy'' dating.

The TV personality - who filed for divorce from Jason Hoppy, the father of her three-year-old daughter Bryn, in January 2013 - has been having a ''hard time'' coping with the breakdown of her marriage and although she remained coy about her current relationship status, she's come out of the tough times feeling ''liberated''.

Talking to Andy Cohen on 'Watch What Happens Live', Bethenny said: ''I am dating and I'm happy. I'm good. I finally feel a little bit of liberation and a little bit of freedom, just a little bit of not feeling so bad. It's been a really, really hard time.''

The brunette beauty - who was catapulted to the spotlight on 'The Real Housewives of New York' - is looking forward to ''taking a break'' after the first and only season of her talk show 'Bethenny' ends its run in May.

Bethenny added: ''I loved every day, I loved connecting to women.

''It's just been an amazing experience. I have my own Skinnygirl business, I have the cocktails and a lot of different products that are launching this year. I really do need a break.''
