'Bethenny Ever After'If you've been through a difficult childhood, it can be very challenging to try and open up and talk about it. But if you reach that point where it starts to come out, sometimes that emotion just pushes it all out. Such was the case for Bethenny Frankel on 'Bethenny Ever After' (Mon., 10PM ET on Bravo).

In her therapy session, she opened up about the craziness of her early life, talking about how her mother would yell at her for not wanting to go to a night club with her when Bethenny was 13 years old. She struggled with her relationships with both her father and her stepfather.

"It sounds like I'm making it up when I say it out loud because it's so f****** crazy," she said. "But it didn't feel that crazy then. It really didn't."

"It's what you knew," her therapist said.

But Frankel doesn't dwell on the negative moments in her life. "I did not feel traumatized as a child," she said. "I had some happy times. We did a lot of nice things. It wasn't like every day I was thinking I was in a screwed-up household."
