Frankel tells her rules to live by in a new book

When Bethenny Frankel first pitched her idea for a low-calorie, ready-to-drink bottled margarita to liquor companies, she got rejected, so she decided to make and distribute it herself. Now, more than 100,000 cases of the Skinnygirl Margarita ship annually, and Fortune Brands Inc. announced Monday that it bought the brand for an undisclosed amount.

It's this kind of drive that Frankel, the former "Real Housewives of New York City" star, talks about in her new book, "A Place of Yes." She presents 10 rules to live by to get what you want in life.

Frankel now has her own show, "Bethenny Ever After." It airs Mondays at 10 Eastern on Bravo.
