Bethenny Frankel is still working out her divorce from Jason Hoppy, and revealed in a new interview that she has no plans to tie the knot again anytime soon.
"We're not supposed to change who we are for a man, and I guarantee I won't be making that mistake again," the "Real Housewives of New York City" star told People.
Frankel and Hoppy, who have a 5-year-old daughter together, wed in spring of 2010 and announced that they were parting ways in December 2012.
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."
Frankel made it clear that she's independent enough to take care of herself.
"I don't need to get married," she added. "I don't need a man. I can support five men."
