Bethenny Frankel is nothing if not frank (it’s even in her name!) but she has been uncharacteristically quiet about her split from husband of two years, Jason Hoppy. Maybe that has something to do with the 3-year-old daughter they share, or maybe the former Real Housewives of New York star was just waiting for the right opportunity.
Cue Andy Cohen, Bravo godfather and honorary therapist for all the Housewives. The ladies often find themselves talking things out on his Watch What Happens Live couch and the March 25 episode was no exception. Bethenny stopped by as did RHoNY’s Ramona Singer, which is pretty much like mixing vinegar and baking soda together.
Bethenny filed for divorce from Jason more than a year ago, but it’s still not finalized, leading some fans to hope they might reconcile like Ramona says she and her estranged spouse, Mario, are trying to do. Reuniting seems off the table, however, with Bethenny telling Andy and Ramona she’s happily dating.
“I finally feel a little bit of liberation, a little bit of freedom, just a little bit of just not feeling so bad,” she said. “It’s been a really, really hard time … It’s been a really surreal, insane, crazy situation, let’s just put it that way.”
