Bethenny FrankelMrs Carter: This is going to be a very blue Christmas for the Frankel/Hoppy household.

It’s only been two years since former “Real Housewives of New York” star Bethenny Frankel and her husband Jason Hoppy tied the knot, but after months of speculation that these two were headed towards separation, it has finally come true. In a statement released to the Associated Press, Frankel revealed that the decision to go their separate ways was extremely difficult and not one taken lightly by either her or Hoppy. She said that the split is amicable and that they will continue to co-parent their daughter Bryn.  Frankel said: “This was an extremely difficult decision that as a woman and a mother, I have to accept as the best choice for our family.  We have love and respect for one another and will continue to amicably co-parent our daughter who is and will always remain our first priority. This is an immensely painful and heartbreaking time for us.”

Bethenny also posted a message on her Twitter account to her fans and followers, giving them a more personal message about her separation.  She wrote: “I am heartbroken. I am sad. We will work through this as a family.”

We love that Bethenny posted a personal message to everyone through her Twitter, especially since her fans interact with her often through the social network.  It lets them know that even been able to make such a strong connection to her over the years.
