Bethenny Frankel isn't sugarcoating her divorce.

The talk show host promoted her latest book Skinnygirl Solutions in Huntington, N.Y. and was very candid about how she's coping with single life.

"I'm trying to find my identity as a single mom - a soon to be divorced mom," said Frankel, who filed for divorce from her husband of less than three years, Jason Hoppy, earlier this year. The pair share a daughter, 3-year-old Bryn. "I was married, and now I'm single. I think we're always trying to find who were are, so it's evolving."

"Not until I became a mom and also going through a divorce did I realize how we're all kind of hanging on by a thread," she added.

Jason Hoppy Makes Shocking New Claims Against Bethenny Frankel 

Frankel has been very vocal about her divorce and bitter custody battle. In an interview with Nightline, the 42-year-old also discussed her divorce, saying, "I'm going through a brutal, brutal time. It really, really is. I mean, there's no other way to slice it."

"I felt like I disappointed people, because I felt like I was this role model, that represented the fairy tale," she told Nightline. "I'm definitely bruised."

"I could have skated by," Frankel added. "I could have stayed on the show and been like, 'Oh, everything's perfect with us. Everything's great.' It made me feel dirty for people to think that I had this perfect relationship and this perfect life."

Bethenny's self-titled syndicated daytime talk show is set to air Sept. 9 on Fox.
