Bethenny Frankel is writing a children's book.
The 43-year-old reality TV star has been busy penning a story for youngsters, titled 'Cookie and Peanut', with the help of her three-year-old daughter Bryn.
She told People.com: ''She's '[Bryn's] the Peanut and my dog's the Cookie. I'm reading her the book, and she's kind of helping me with the story. She likes it - it's really cute and she loves a good children's book.''
Meanwhile, the former talkshow host has decided to take time away from her TV career in order to care for Bryn and work on her Skinnygirl cocktail company.
She explained: ''I'm taking a really long break right now - I want to focus on my Skinnygirl brand and my daughter. I've been working so hard for so long, and I just really want to rest and enjoy.''
However, the former 'Real Housewives of New York' star insists she won't be returning to reality TV in the near future because she doesn't like how intrusive it is.
She said: ''It's definitely a personal sacrifice, sharing your personal life, and I think that's what people like to see the most. It's not something I'm interested [in] right now.''
'Cookie and Peanut' is due to be published in September.
The novel's author saw a cut of the film and loved each of the changes the movie's director had made.
