Outspoken TV personality Bethenny Frankel isn’t known for holding back, but she did reveal something deeply personal during an interview Monday morning on “Today.”

The reality star says she goes on “emotional roller coaster” this season of “Bethenny Ever After,” which premieres tonight at 9/8c on Bravo, but she went through a sadness that you won’t see on camera.

Frankel, 41, reveals that she was recently pregnant with her second child but miscarried when she was two months along. She and her husband of two years Jason Hoppy have a 21-month-old daughter, Bryn.

“We were pregnant with a second baby and at eight weeks I miscarried,” Frankel told “Today’s” Savannah Guthrie.

“That was a very emotional experience,” Frankel said as she choked up. “And thinking about women who can’t have their own baby, even the first baby … I’m really lucky, I’m really grateful for her [Bryn].”

She admits she isn’t sure if the couple will try again for another baby. “I’m not really thinking about it … I’m 41, I don’t know, it’s not really my choice — the window’s closing, and that’s something I’m dealing with,” she said.

“There are so many emotional things that come with it,” Frankel added. “Until you become a woman, you don’t know the things that come with being a woman… I can’t believe what people go through if you can’t even have the one. You go through a roller coaster of emotions with it.”

The reality star, author, and Skinny Girl entrepreneur expands her empire yet again when she launches her talk show, “Bethenny,” this summer.

Season 3 of “Bethenny Ever After” premieres Monday at 9/8c on Bravo.
