“I was on a sailboat on Saturday that was supposed to be eight hours, and it ended up being 20 because were lost at sea,” Frankel told E! columnist Marc Malkin.
“The captain had to call the Coast Guard and we were hit by a big wave. It was very scary. It was traumatic. Absolutely traumatic.”
Aside from the newly minted millionaire couple, there were 8 other people on the boat, including a camera crew. Luckily, the couple’s daughter, Bryn, was not with them.
“It was so scary,” the Skinny Girl Margarita mogul said. “I was thinking, Oh, my God, Bryn! I’m not going to be there at six o’clock in the morning when she wakes up and she’s going to wonder where Mommy is and gosh, if something were to happen to me, what would happen to her. I was having horrendous thoughts.”
A spokesperson from the Coast Guard confirmed the boat was led to safety and returned to shore at 4 a.m.
