Bethenny Frankel has been trying to find herself again after her divorce from Jason Hoppy. Frankel decided to go back on The Real Housewives of New York because she wanted to go back to her old stomping grounds. It is unknown whether Jason truly hated Bethenny’s career in front of the camera, because she was quick to return after her divorce turned ugly.
But Bethenny Frankel also shared an emotional side to her life. Bethenny revealed that she felt completely betrayed by Hoppy, and she never intended her marriage to turn as ugly as it did. Frankel was shocked, and details of how nasty he was started coming out during the reunion show. But Frankel appears strong and can fight back. Despite his nasty attempts to bring her down, Bethenny is happy and moving on.
According to a new Bravo report, Bethenny Frankel is now revealing that she is starting to find herself again and she is finding her own little happy place. For almost a year, Bethenny lived and worked out of hotels around the city and she never had her own home. Now she has a new apartment in New York City and a home in the Hamptons. Frankel is definitely settling down a bit after all of the drama she has gone through.
“I’m really happy right now. I mean, I’m going to be happy forever now. But I’m definitely happy. I’ve decided,” Bethenny revealed during an interview with Steve Harvey this week.
During the Real Housewives of New York reunion, Bethenny was asked about her divorce. Of course, Bethenny can’t dish too many details about it, but her co-stars chimed in about what they had personally experienced.
“There’s no way for people to realize what’s really going on,” Frankel told the viewers during the reunion, adding, “I really never expected it to be like this. I’ve had a pretty colorful past that hasn’t been the easiest, and this is, by far, the most excruciating thing I’ve ever even come close to being in.”
It is clear that there is much more to Bethenny Frankel’s divorce than viewers know. Frankel can’t talk about her divorce on the show due to legal implications. But her co-stars can.
“I’ve witnessed what Bethenny goes through in terms of this custody, child care thing,” Carole Radziwill chimed in, adding, “And if it was me, I would not be able to handle it as well as you handle it. I understand what some of the crying is. She calls her daughter twice a day, it’s court appointed, and lots of times, her ex-husband won’t answer the phone. I’ve seen her call six, seven, eight, nine times, and she wants to talk to her daughter. She wants to say hi. She’s 4. There’s so many head games being played.”
