Bethenny Frankel & Jason Hoppy Call It Quits

December 24, 2012 08:00 AM by Donna W. Martin

After nearly three years of marriage and months of speculation and rumors of an impending divorce, the Real Housewives of New York City alum, Bethenny Frankel has confirmed that her marriage to Jason Hoppy is over. Keep reading to get all the details.

According to People, Frankel, 42, first met Hoppy in November 2008 at a nightclub and after an 11-month romance; the two became engaged. At the time, Frankel was seven months pregnant and said, “He’s my anchor. I fell in love with a regular guy with a regular salary.” She added, “He taught me that being taken care of was emotional and not financial.”

However, the fairytale was short lived. According to In Touch, Frankel and Hoppy’s relationship has been in trouble for more than a year. They even spent the summer apart. Bethenny and 2½-year-old daughter Bryn spent 6 weeks of the summer in the Hamptons while Jason stayed home in New York.

At that time, Frankel admitted she was fighting to save her marriage but apparently, it’s a battle she has lost. “It brings me great sadness to say that Jason and I are separating.” Frankel said in an interview last week. “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,” the statement continues. “This is an immensely painful and heartbreaking time for us.”

What do you think of Frankel and Hoppy’s split? Did you see it coming? Do you think it was destined to fail from the start? Post a comment below and let us know.

    THIS is the start of her KARMA. I have no empathy for somebody like this greedy woman. She used everyone as stepping rocks to get to the top(?) and the only way for bebethny is to go D O W N….I/we don’t care.

    Yes, I thought they would probably split but hoped they wpouldn’t. All things considered I think he had a tough road trying to get along with Bethany. I liked her but I think she is difficult to get along with. Even though he is supposed to be a regular guy, she is almost a little to common for him. I know she is very succesful but at what cost. Too bad the split……

    I know this opinion is unpopular, but HE was the one who got hard to live with, if their joint tv show was any indication. Everything she did to try to please him just annoyed him, as exemplified by that awful birthday party that he got miffed about because he parents weren’t invited. NEvermind that she offered to have another one just for them. When he stomped off rather than get on a plane with her and the baby,that would have been it for me. He made a career out of making her (and apparently most other people) think that she was the unreasonable one, but he really treated her very very badly. I hope she meets somebody who is a grownup and ready to be a father.
