It's been a tough nine months for Bethenny Frankel since she announced her split from husband Jason Hoppy last December.
After the divorce that she once hoped would be "amicable" instead turned angry, Frankel, 42, became locked in a battle with her ex over her fortune, at the very same time she was launching her new syndicated talk show, Bethenny, which premiered this week.
"You just just have to say we're going to get to the other side," she says in a revealing interview in this week's PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday. "I'm not going to be afraid and I'm not going to get more than I can handle."
