In fact, Bethenny says she only started mending ties with her mother after her daughter Brainnow 13, was constantly pushing to meet her grandmother…and admits she's grateful they've had time to work on their relationship.

Frankel ends on a positive note…saying she considers her mother family despite everything they've been through and encouraging others to reach out to their estranged friends and family.
