Bethenny Frankel is happy to have a break.
The reality star and Skinnygirl mogul wrote an open letter on her website to address her talk show's cancellation, and says that although she enjoyed aspects of the show, including her staff and crew, she felt restricted by the format and is happy to get some breathing space.
"I felt a bit diluted, filtered and somewhat constricted," Frankel, 43, says. "I am a free spirit. My late father (a horse trainer) used to say, 'She is a mustang. You need to let her run.'"
"So to answer how I feel, I am relieved. What I really want right now is to be with my daughter, to do yoga, to focus on Skinnygirl and my writing, and to give myself a break."

Right now, here's what's on Ellen DeGeneres's actual to-do list: 1. Star in a talk show adored by millions. 2. Work with her wife, Portia de Rossi, on major renovations to their new home. 3. Stay calm about hosting the Oscars, which will be seen by nearly everyone on the planet, on March 2. 4. Remove throw-up deposited by Augie, Portia and Ellen's new rescue dog, from de Rossi's sweater (he gets carsick). At 56, she's taking it all in stride, and that has come with riding out bumps in life's road. DeGeneres sat down with PEOPLE's Elizabeth Leonard to share a little wisdom about what she's learned along the way. And – no worries, Augie – she wouldn't change a thing.
I'm hosting the Oscars – because it's a really terrifying thing to do.

CeeLo Green may be leaving NBC's The Voice, but the singer has plenty of things on his plate to keep him busy.
He will be joining Lionel Richie on tour for a slew of summer dates starting in May. He'll also be making his movie debut in the upcoming film Can A Song Save Your Life. And Green says he'll also be juggling several projects for NBC.
"NBC and I plan to continue our relationship with several new co-ventures including a new music show, while we also explore our ideas for me to create and host a new show of my own," Green told Ellen DeGeneres after announcing his departure from The Voice. "I will not go quietly into the night ... expect more great music and entertainment done in my own unique unmistakable and undeniable way."
