Health Cover Star for December: Bethenny Frankel The reality turned talk show star talks about dealing with life after her high profile divorce, the booming ‘Skinnygirl” business and being a single mom in this Health interview. Her newest book Skinnygirl Solutions is on sale now. So what else is inside the December Health? Holiday Gift Guide Health offers an array of ideas for presents you want to see under your tree.

I counted three pages of them this month which made me happy. Plus, the gift guide is pretty damn nifty!
