Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy Split

December 23, 2012

This is just too sad. If you watched the insane women on the Real Housewives of New York squabble, cry, and wine together than you know the one whose made it up and out on her own was Bethenny. She is lovingly neurotic, and seemed to have finally found the right man just before branching out for her own series.

You may recall how insanely in love they were in the beginning. The strapping young business man had hooked himself a real housewife. The only catch? She is far from a mere housewife, she had a company that was beginning to pick up momentum and she was already making money an a reality show. It seemed like a lot for him to keep up with, but somehow they always made it.

She tweeted:

That was just the short version. A big press release came out where it was officially announced through her PR team, which read in part:

“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. 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. This is an immensely painful and heartbreaking time for us.”

Man, I never thought they would split. Sure, they were drastically different people. Jason was more of a routine-based 9-5 kind of guy, whereas Bethenny was more of a dreamer. They would often argue about little things on camera, and Bethenny would go to her therapist to try to find meaning of it all.

I guess the celebrity curse got to them as well. Let’s just hope it’s not too hard on their child.

What are your thoughts? Did you think they would last?
