Bethenny Frankel is giving up the hard stuff.
"I stopped drinking hard alcohol," the Skinnygirl founder told host Janine Rubenstein. "I just drink the occasional wine. It's because of some medical issues, and I've been really on the case of getting to the bottom of some medical challenges I've experienced."
Frankel has had surgery to remove uterine fibroid tumors, and earlier this year, suffered a medical emergency after she unknowingly ate fish, which she is "deathly allergic to."
While she works through those issues, Frankel is also preparing to finally see another business come to fruition, Forever Young wine, which she said she's "excited to launch" in 2023.
"What is better than feeling Forever Young?" the former margarita maven explained in a June 2021 video that announced she was getting back into the adult beverage business.

Frankel appeared to have struck a deal with Forever Young wine founder's hospitality developer Seth Greenberg and Dozortsev & Sons Enterprises, who according to the brand's website, had previously been distributing the product.
On Frankel's site, she described the wine as "superb," "next level," and "elevated."
A full line of wine will be offered, including varietals such as Sauvignon Blanc, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Rosé. They range in price from $12.99 to $16.99.

"I was attracted to the project because, truthfully, I hadn't heard of the show last year," Frankel said of the new venture in which she and O'Leary offer entrepreneurs advice. Frankel also produces the show.
"I thought it was a new show when it was proposed to me, because it just sounded like such a great idea. I like things that aren't derivative, that are brand-new, that no one's really done before."
