Bethenny Frankel spoke to Extra TV on the red carpet at the MTV Movie and TV Awards.

During Sunday night's MTV Movie and TV Awards, Frankel was presented with the Reality Royalty Award.
"It’s making me reflect on this nontraditional journey. I just wrote a book, 'Business Is Personal,' that is literally the example of what this award is — being honest, your nontraditional path, do it your own way — and MTV has done it their own way, they are untraditional. I like that they're honoring me because they get it,” she said of the honor.
