Fans of The Apprentice and The Real Housewives of New York got an open and frank discussion Tuesday as Bethenny Frankel addressed a VIP crowd at the El Paso Business Convention and Expo.

The moderated Q&A was hosted by KVIA's Estela Casas. Frankel gave a pretty unfiltered look into her thought processes as owner of Skinnygirl Cocktails and a recently divorced mother.

Frankel's appearance is part of the two-day conference, which continues tomorrow (Wednesday the 28th) at the Doubletree Hotel. While Day 1 focused on educational topics for business owners and employees, the second day will focus more on IT and technical issues. Attendance is free, though those wishing to attend should register in advance.
