Bethenny Frankel is coping well with the demise of her talk show, Bethenny, after just one season. In fact, she says she's actually relieved.
In an open letter posted Tuesday on her website, the former Real Housewives of New York City star says she is grateful for the experience, but wants to focus more on her family.

"To answer how I feel, I am relieved," Frankel wrote. "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. been striving and climbing and white-knuckling for so long that I need a rest from the grind. I'm a little over myself and wouldn't blame anyone else for being over me as well."
After a promising test run in six cities in the summer of 2012, Bethenny launched nationally this past fall to soft numbers. The show averaged 1.1 million viewers and a 0.9 household rating, ranking No. 14 among talk shows. It was announced last week that the show would not return for Season 2.
