Frankel, 45, spoke candidly about compatibility in the interview, urging others to evaluate their relationships before considering marriage.

"Everybody is out there looking for someone — they want the ring and to get married," she says. "My opinion is you need a man who can deal with you. If I can't meet someone who can do that, then I'd rather be alone."

Since adopting that mentality, Frankel has been pleased with the result.

"A different caliber of man has been interested in me in the last couple of years," Frankel said. "It's been someone really successful who is very smart who is excited to meet a woman who doesn't need them to be their everything and doesn't need them to support them."

"I don't need to get married," she added. "I don't need a man. I can support five men."
