After Bethenny Frankel announced over the holidays that she and Jason Hoppy were separating after two years of marriage, it was only a matter of time before she decided to take the next step. After all, she had more or less declared in her initial statement that the relationship was not working, so why drag out the separation process when there is no need to? With this in mind, it has now been confirmed that the “Bethenny Ever After” star, who also has dipped her toes into daytime TV in the past year, has formally begun the divorce process in New York. (This was first reported by TMZ.)
For those looking for more extensive details when it comes to the couple’s split, there are not any available at this time. Frankel does reportedly have a tight prenuptial agreement with Hoppy, so everything that the two parties have already made for themselves will remain intact long after the divorce process is over. In addition to that, they also plan on sharing custody amicably for the couple’s young daughter Bryn. Let’s hope that as this process continues, matters between the two will continue to stay so cordial so that Bryn does not have to read through nasty court battles later on in life like many other celebrity children are forced to.
Frankel first became a household name courtesy of “The Real Housewives of New York City,” which helped her to land both her own solo show along with making her Skinnygirl brand into something worth $120 million. If there is a pure example of a reality TV success story out there, Bethenny has to be it.
