Martha Stewart has some choice words to share with Bethenny Frankel about a prickly subject: divorce.
In an episode of Bethenny airing Monday, the domestic diva chats with the talk-show host about family and relationships, opening up about her own 1990 divorce from publisher Andy Stewart.
"It's a horrible thing to go through a divorce. Unfortunately, it wasn't a compromise. It was his choice, by the way, not mine," she says.
Stewart's advice? "The best thing to do is think of your partner as a piece of you-know-what. It's over and get on with your life."

Talk about all-American: A strawberry and whipped cream pie created by Martha Stewart is just about as patriotic as one can get. And this icebox edition, from Stewart's book Pies & Tarts, is "simple enough for a weeknight" or "fancy enough for special events," she says.

Before she was a lifestyle guru and media mogul, Martha Stewart was comfortable on a catwalk – sort of.
Stewart, who now espouses confidence in her daily life as she juggles all her businesses, tells Parade in a new interview that she wasn't always as steady on her feet – especially as a 13-year-old model.
"I knew I was good enough to get $60 an hour, which was the going rate at the time," Stewart, 71, tells Parade, adding that she started modeling "just for money." "I wasn't the cover girl. I wasn't Suzy Parker. But I should've been."
"Maybe if I had had somebody encouraging me," she says. "But then I got married when I was 19."

On the top floor of the Empire State Building, in a ceremony officiated by dear friend Joan Rivers – who got ordained online for the occasion – the couple married in a dazzling King Kong-themed extravaganza.
"We love the imagery of the films but King Kong has a tragic ending," says Bailey. "We wanted to create a happy ending."

Better late than never is the case for anyone eagerly waiting for a glimpse of Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds on their super secret wedding day.
And we mean glimpse literally – the sole photo of the pair posted on Martha Stewart Weddings Thursday is a beautiful shot of them holding hands. Lively, 25, wore a couture Marchesa ball gown, and her hubby, 36, donned a Burberry suit with custom leather suspenders.
"They wanted to celebrate in privacy – and in style. And while they remain protective of images of them on their most heartfelt occasion, they graciously let us share pictures of the elements we created together," reads the first slide of the pastry-heavy gallery touting the winter 2013 issue of MSW.
