Bethenny Frankel Parts Ways With Husband After Less Than 3 Years

After less than three years of marriage, former Real Housewives Of New York cast member Bethenny Frankel and her husband Jason Hoppy have decided to go their separate ways. The two wed back in 2010 after she got pregnant with their first child. Unfortunately, rumors of problems and possible break-ups began not long after the I-Dos.

Frankel made the sad split announcement earlier this week in a statement. You can take a look at a portion of it below, courtesy of People

"It brings me great sadness to say that Jason and I are separating. This was an extremely difficult decision that as a woman and a mother, I have to accept as the best choice for our family."

In many ways, Frankel and Hoppy were always a bit of a strange mix. They met in a nightclub in 2008, and they were engaged within a year. He’s a very normal guy with a normal job, and she’s, of course, the creator of the Skinnygirl line of cocktails. It’s unclear whether their vastly different careers, different incomes or different ways of previously living played a major role in the relationship’s downfall, but clearly, something wasn’t right about the connection they shared.

In the years ahead, Brankel and Hoppy have vowed to continue co-parenting their daughter who is currently two-and-a half years old. Pop Blend’s sincerest well-wishes go out to the entire family as they move forward apart.
