"I live and die for Halloween," Frankel admitted to Anderson Cooper while co-hosting Tuesday's Anderson Live. "I got Bryn four costumes, including a Minnie Mouse one. I just let her wear them around the house [now]!" (Cooper sympathized with Frankel's daughter, telling his co-host, "As a kid I used to wear a costume every day. I wish I had a job where I could just walk around in a bunny costume all day!")
A keen fashion sense and a knack for style isn't all Frankel's daughter with husband Jason Hoppy has picked up lately.
"She's sleeping in the 'big girl bed' and I'm in the middle of potty training now," Frankel told Us Weekly's Allison Corneau -- who served as Anderson Live's "blogger of the day" -- during a break on Tuesday's show. Another milestone her little girl's life? She's started attending pre-school! "She brings home art projects for me!" beams her proud mom.
Frankel's decision to let her daughter grow up away from reality TV cameras post-Bethenny Ever After was not one the Skinnygirl founder made lightly. Explains a source: "The door is open for other projects with Bravo. But as far as Bethenny Ever After goes, she feels that ending the show on a high note and ending it after this season would be best for her family. She doesn't want her daughter to grow up on TV."
