With season three of “Bethenny Ever After” having just ended and her new talk show “Bethenny” set to debut on June 11th, Bethenny Frankel garnered herself a little added exposure by covering the Summer 2012 of Michigan Avenue magazine.

Perched atop a TV set, the 41-year-old reality star/businesswoman donned a Façonnable Cotton and viscose sweater paired with The Katie skirt from Elie Tahari, a Poppy belt in coral-printed croc and natural raffia and silver mirrored leather pumps with silver blade heels by Gio Diev for the front page shot while dishing about her days in the Windy City, her baby daughter Bryn and the new talk show in which she’s ready to launch.

Highlights from Miss Frankel’s interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Michigan Avenue!

On her years living in Chicago back in the 2000’s:
“I really didn’t know anybody. I would go to the East Bank Club and try to stretch my workout as long as I could, just to have something to do during the day. You could really kind of hang out there. I don’t have any place like that in New York. It was a transitional time. I really didn’t know what I wanted to do with my life. But I knew it was time to hit my stride. It may seem bizarre, but when I think of Chicago, I think of omelets. I miss the omelets.”

On her new talk show “Bethenny”:
“It’s important to have a point of view… Being honest, being relatable, having fun…being me.”

On what she keeps away from the cameras (along with her hubby’s business and her earnings):
“The interaction with the baby on camera is very limited. That’s just not a choice that she is old enough to make.” She considers being there for Bryn her “biggest success.”

On traveling with her daughter:
“I’m able to be with her for every meal, every bath. I’m there when she wakes up from every nap. I think that’s definitely what my definition of success is.”
