Bethenny Frankel: I had a miscarriage

Reality TV is full of drama, whether it's the strategic backstabbing as on "Survivor," the trials of being a young single parent on "Teen Mom"or the numerous catfights on the various "Real Housewives" shows.

But for Bethenny Frankel, formerly of "Real Housewives of New York City" and current star of "Bethenny Ever After," her personal troubles recently took center stage. The reality personality, who was on TODAY Monday to dish on season three of "Ever After," revealed a big heartbreaker when the subject turned to adding to her family.

"We were pregnant with a second baby, and at eight weeks, I miscarried," Frankel said. "That was a very emotional experience."

Among the feelings she experienced? "You go through a roller coaster of emotions about it," she told her host Savannah Guthrie. "About your age, about being a woman, about can you have another baby, about are you a failure to your partner, about what if my husband married someone younger, you go through a million different things."

The reality star pointed out that though she feels incredibly lucky to have her "perfect" 21-month-old daughter Bryn with husband Jason, she wasn't sure if another child would be in the cards. "I'm 41, and I don't know. It's not really my choice. It's not really my option. The window is closing," she said.

But don't look for this heartbreaking event on "Bethenny Ever After" this season. Frankel said "that is something that has not been dealt with on the show. That was very recent." Instead, look for Frankel to work on balancing being a mother, a wife and a businesswoman -- all with her own brand of humor.

"Bethenny Ever After's" season three premiere airs Feb. 20 at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
