Former Real Housewives of New York star, Bethenny Frankel, shares her humble beginnings via Instagram before she began making million dollar deals. “It wasn’t that long ago that I couldn’t afford to take a taxi from my apartment uptown to downtown. I would go to the ATM to get $40 & an ‘insufficient funds’ slip would pop out. I bounced checks, which would then affect other checks I’d written & I would panic over those fees. Then, I would beg the person on the phone for mercy. This was also when I lived alone in my studio apartment, and I had no family or partner.”

It wasn’t that long ago that I couldn’t afford to take a taxi from my apartment uptown to downtown. I would go to the ATM to get $40 & an “insufficient funds” slip would pop out. I bounced checks, which would then affect other checks I’d written & I would panic over those fees. Then, I would beg the person on the phone for mercy. This was also when I lived alone in my studio apartment, and I had no family or partner. . That said, I’ve always been fortunate to have a roof over my head and a place to sleep—something many people cannot say, which makes this time of year happy for some and so sad and scary for so many others. I try to do my part and to give back to help others and make some meaning of the success and platform I’ve been given. I try to teach my daughter about compassion and generosity and I really want her to understand how fortunate she is and how much of a struggle life can be for others. . When traveling to disaster-struck areas, the most compelling memory is that, no matter how destitute and horrific the situation, the ones surrounded by their families and loved ones have a hope, faith, and happiness that is way stronger than the world’s wealthiest person who feels alone. . To be able to create meaningful and rare experiences and memories for myself and Bryn gives meaning to having worked so hard for so many years. Having spent holidays alone and having no rent money and bouncing checks makes me appreciate what I have now—but truly makes me realize that the most important thing in life is LOVE. . Giving to others and sharing with the people you love is literally priceless. . Happy Holidays! Xo 💋🎄❣️👯‍♀️✨❌⭕️ . #Priceless #LOVE #HappyHolidays #APlaceOfYes #MommyAndMe #FamTime

Relatable AF, right?!?!

The former reality star/humanitarian continued, “That said, I’ve always been fortunate to have a roof over my head and a place to sleep—something many people cannot say, which makes this time of year happy for some and so sad and scary for so many others. I try to do my part and to give back to help others and make some meaning of the success and platform I’ve been given. I try to teach my daughter about compassion and generosity and I really want her to understand how fortunate she is and how much of a struggle life can be for others.”

The B Strong founder explained, “When traveling to disaster-struck areas, the most compelling memory is that, no matter how destitute and horrific the situation, the ones surrounded by their families and loved ones have a hope, faith, and happiness that is way stronger than the world’s wealthiest person who feels alone.”

Just so you know, Forbes reported that Bethenny reportedly sold Skinnygirl for $100 million. The entrepreneur also just sold her Manhattan loft for $4 million. It’s nice to hear B remembers where she came from.

The former RHONY fan favorite reminded her fans and followers about the true meaning of the holidays. “To be able to create meaningful and rare experiences and memories for myself and Bryn gives meaning to having worked so hard for so many years. Having spent holidays alone and having no rent money and bouncing checks makes me appreciate what I have now—but truly makes me realize that the most important thing in life is LOVE.” Bethenny left us with a final reminder, “Giving to others and sharing with the people you love is literally priceless.”
