Bethenny Frankel is acknowledging one big, noticeable change in her appearance in recent years.
The 45-year-old Real Housewives of New York star reveals in a new interview that she gets Botox injections in her jaw, and says it has completely changed her look.
“I do look different. I’ve had Botox in my jaw,”; Frankel explains to the Daily Mail. “You can see that my jaw has completely changed.”;
Frankel says she started the injections three years ago as a result of her grinding her teeth since she was in her 20s. She also began wearing a night guard eight years ago, which alleviated some of it, but then her dermatologist suggested she try Botox in her jaw because “it’s so tense.”;
“I actually saw him yesterday and I showed him the pictures, and it has literally — you can see that my jaw has completely changed — because it’s like a muscle, it’s like working out with weights,”; she further explains. “My jaw from grinding so many years was like this [closed fist].”;
Indeed, a look at Frankel from a Skinnygirl Cocktail pre-party in February 2013 (right) as opposed to a shot of her at the 2016 Breast Cancer Research Foundation Hot Pink Party last month (left) shows a much softer jawline.
Frankel says her new look even inspired her current “do, a chic bob as opposed to her formerly long locks.
“That’s also why I think I could take a shorter haircut,”; Frankel says.
The reality star admits she’s done Botox on other parts of her face, but says she only undergoes the treatment about once a year. She maintains that she’s never had any invasive plastic surgery, although Frankel has been open about getting breast implants in the past.
“I have not had a nose job. I have not had anything done,”; she stresses.
“It’s been by far the most difficult thing I’ve ever been through,”; Frankel exclusively told ET about her divorce. “It was really brutal and I would cry every day, and now that I’m coming out of it, I feel like I’ve survived something.”;
“It’s not over, but when it is over, we’re going to party like it’s 1999,”; she added.
