Frankel Divorce: Jason Won't Move Out
Bethenny Frankel and husband Jason Hoppy split up just before the holidays, but it looks like Hoppy and Frankel have no immediate plans to separate residences.
Bethenny Frankel may be headed toward divorce, but she still lives with estranged husband Jason Hoppy. A reality TV star, Frankel announced the news of her split with Hoppy just before the holidays. Fans probably weren't surprised since the relationship between the two seemed tense, even on good days, as documented on her Bravo television show Bethenny Ever After.
Speculation arose that Frankel's decision to leave Hoppy might have resulted from cheating, but Frankel cleared the air after Christmas. A source close to her was quoted in Us Weekly as saying, "No one cheated." The source continued, "They're both devastated…They grew apart. She is very upset."
A separate source for the magazine added that Frankel "feels like she disappointed herself. She disappointed her daughter and she disappointed her fans."
We think Frankel is being a bit too hard on herself. Relationships fail and if Bethenny Ever After is an even fairly realistic picture of her life, then it's clear to fans that she certainly tried hard to keep the relationship together and improve herself and her relationship with Hoppy.
Despite the demise of Frankel's marriage, Us Weekly reports she and Hoppy still share their New York City loft.
"There are not plans yet for [Jason] to move out of their NYC loft," the magazine source said.
Both hope to remain in New York City to share custody of their 2-year-old daughter, Bryn. Us Weekly reports, "She fought to have it shoot in New York to make sharing custody easier."
Frankel confirmed the news of her split from her husband via Twitter on Dec. 23, 2012.
"I am heartbroken. I am sad. We will work through this as a family," she wrote.
