In a few days, Bethenny Frankel will once again be mixing it up with the Real Housewives of New York City – but for now, she’s enjoying the Miami sun.

Frankel, 44, was spotted Saturday in the Florida surf, a drink in her hand, wearing a big smile and a bigger hat and walking next to friend Bruce Bozzi.

She told PEOPLE last month that she’d split from boyfriend Michael Cerussi III. “I’ve never dated anyone in this crazy world that I live in now and I don’t think I would want to. I would only want to date someone low-profile,” she said.

The last few years have been a tumult for the businesswoman and reality star: Frankel and her husband, Jason Hoppy, split in December 2012 – and settled their custody dispute over daughter Bryn more than a year later, in June 2014.

In February of that same year, Frankel’s eponymous talk show was canceled due to low ratings.

Then, in October, she announced she would be returning to the show that made her a Bravo favorite after leaving in 2010.

“I’m excited,” she told PEOPLE. “It feels like the first season when it was fresh and new and unknown.”
