Different strokes for different folks, we guess but it sure does seem strange that The Real Housewives of New York City alum, Bethenny Frankel, and soon-to-be ex-husband, Jason Hoppy still share an apartment despite the fact they’ve called it quits on their marriage and Frankel has filed for divorce. What’s up with that? Keep reading for more details.
Frankel has filed a summons for divorce less than one month after announcing that she and husband, Jason Hoppy were calling it quits and ending their marriage of nearly three years.
According to US Weekly, Frankel initially announced their split on December 23. “It brings me great sadness to say that Jason and I are separating,” she 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.”
While Frankel and Hoppy were unable to salvage their marriage, Frankel said, “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,” referring to 2-year-old Bryn. “This is an immensely painful and heartbreaking time for us.”
But what’s strange about the situation is the fact they are still living together. While the divorce filing may bring them closer to making the final break, a source close to the couple say there are some issues they still have to work out before Hoppy moves out. But for now, “There are not plans yet for [Jason] to move out of their New York City loft,” the source said. And Frankel is “Just taking it one day at a time.”
What do you think of Frankel filing for divorce while still sharing an apartment with Hoppy? Do you think this is her way of forcing him out of the apartment? We know you have an opinion and we’d like to hear it so sound off in the comments section and tell us what you think.
