It has only been a few days since the star of “Bethenny Ever After” (and the former cast member on “The Real Housewives of New York City”) confirmed that she and her husband were separating after two years of marriage, but one-half of the couple in Jason was spotted in New York City having a cup of coffee. The twist? He was still wearing his wedding ring, which is a sign that the two parties are taking their separation and the time away from each other day by day.
Multiple sources have already confirmed that Frankel and Hoppy are not rushing things when it comes to their split, and won’t be going 50 rounds over who gets the frying pan. The current plans are to formulate a custody agreement for their daughter that is amicable, that way the child does not have to grow up in a broken home that includes plenty of squabbling over anything and everything from money to property. This is a contrast from many other divorces associated with the Bravo community, including two pertaining to the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” series (in Camille and Kelsey Grammer and Adrienne Maloof and Paul Nassif) that have played out in the tabloids almost since the very beginning.
Before even making the decision to split, these two reportedly did just about everything that they could in order to make the marriage work; rumors surrounding their status have been circulating ever since this past summer, when Frankel said on her talk show (which is returning for new episodes in 2013) that she and her husband were working through some of their issues.
