Bethenny Frankel has had incredible success in the business world thanks to her Skinnygirl brand.

But the former Real Housewives of New York City star believes that she’s even better at philanthropy than she is at business. 

On Wednesday, the 51-year-old appeared on Australia’s The Morning Show to discuss her relief efforts for Ukraine, which has seen her raise over USD$25million and counting through her Bstrong initiative.

‘It’s funny, I’m even more successful at philanthropy than I am in business,’ she said.

‘I think that’s because it’s more laser focused,’ she added. 

‘With relief work, you’re dealing with Puerto Rico, you’re dealing with Bahamas, now this is a refugee crisis and aid and warehouses and distribution and this is like one massive project and nobody can do that better than I can.’

Bethenny explained that she used to produce ‘large scale, multimillion dollar events’ in the entertainment industry, and that the experience has helped her in her current work as a philanthropist.

Her Bstrong initiative is currently partnered with the Global Empowerment Mission, which in total has raised $45million in aid for Ukraine. 

Last week, Bethenny announced that her organization Bstrong has raised over $10 million in aid to help relocate Ukrainian refugees and $15 million in humanitarian aid for those remaining in the war-torn country. 

The RHONY alum updated her fans with a post on her Instagram and shared a video in which she described her fundraising efforts.

‘I haven’t been giving you updates because I’ve been so swamped and just in the soup,’ Bethenny said as she addressed her followers in the clip.

She continued, ‘So we are up to $15 million dollars that will go into Ukrainian in aid and now $9 million dollars donated.

‘We are partnering with different apparel companies, food companies, lodging companies to be announced later, to place these people in lodging. 

‘Thousands of people in lodging and you already knew that we already partnered with travel companies for trains and planes, so it’s planes, trains, lodging food and clothing for refugees and aid going in.

‘Everything from all kinds of food and survival to medical supplies, etc. So now we are in full strategy/ execution mode. Thank you!’
