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."

Bethenny Frankel recently admitted that she's going through a brutal time in her divorce with Jason Hoppy, so it's not surprising that she's a little gun-shy about the idea of walking down the aisle again.
"I don't know that I would get remarried," the 42-year-old admits in October's Redbook. "It's too soon to think about it. But I'd listen to my gut. All through reality television, being honest, saying what's on my mind – that was my gut."
The new daytime host, whose Bethenny premieres on Sept. 9, has a lot on her plate. This includes juggling the new TV gig with her other business interests, such as her Skinnygirl cocktail brand, along with being a mom to her daughter, Bryn, 3.

"This talk show is exhausting," reads the caption of a Twitter photo, showing her beloved (and sleep-deprived!) pooch Cookie catching some Zzz's.
Hours before, the talk show host, 42, whose talk show Bethenny debuts Sept. 9 after an earlier test run, Tweeted that each day is like a roller coaster ride with her 3-year-old daughter Bryn.

When Bethenny Frankel filed for divorce in December, she vowed to herself – and to fans – that she and Jason Hoppy would keep their split amicable.
But it didn't take long for their situation to devolve. Now, months later, the duo, who are parents to daughter Bryn, 3, are still living together in the same N.Y.C. apartment – even as they continue to hash out their differences in court.
"My living situation is very, very stressful," Frankel, 41, tells PEOPLE in the new issue, on stands Friday. "I don't think it's very healthy for anyone involved. It's very upsetting. You just have to endure it."

Held at Dylan's Candy Bar on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, Hoppy arrived to the soiree with his parents, Carol and Bob Hoppy, and according to an onlooker, "Bryn was very happy to see them."
While Hoppy and Frankel were both in attendance, "they did not interact," adds the source.

While Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy aren't scheduled to return to divorce court for a few more weeks, the reality-star-turned-talk-show-host has been giving a lot of thought to how far apart she and her ex have drifted.
At the time of the split, Frankel released a statement in which she said that she and Hoppy hoped to "amicably co-parent" their daughter Bryn, who turns 3 next month.
Now, in an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, Frankel says she can see that's going to be a challenge.
"I really did think it would be amicable. I absolutely did," she says. "I wrote that entire statement myself. And every single word, I believed to be true."
