Bethenny Frankel has had a tough year and she’s finally done with her divorce. Even though she was only married for about two years, her divorce took four years to finalize because Jason Hoppy didn’t want to move out of the apartment they once shared in Tribeca. And as long as she was ordered to pay spousal support to him, he could afford to live in the apartment. But when the judge overruled the decision, Jason had to move out as he was merely making $100,000 a year and couldn’t afford to live in the $5 million apartment. But these days, Frankel is all smiles as she has the support from her friends and new boyfriend.
According to a new Bravo report, Bethenny Frankel recently spoke out about her life at the Dress for Success event that she’s been involved in. Bethenny has revealed that she wants to pay it forward and she’s doing that by giving women in need advice and guidance. And this doesn’t just apply to women in business, but to any woman who has gone through a personal crisis and needs support. Maybe her divorce drama inspired her to give back and provide others with a support system that she didn’t have.
And during the event, Bethenny Frankel revealed to Bravo that “kindness is everywhere right now.”

“People do kind things for me all the time. I think it’s kind that my friends are here [at this Dress for Success event]. I think that Dennis [Shields] donated $10,000 to the two charities today. Everyday [people are kind],” Bethenny Frankel has revealed to Bravo’s The Daily Dish recently, sharing that the Christmas mood of giving is all around her, adding, “Carole’s kind to be here. My staff is kind to work with me and be crying that they’re so happy.”
Bethenny hasn’t exactly gone public with her relationship, because she doesn’t want Dennis Shields to be exposed to the public life she lives, especially in regards to her work with The Real Housewives of New York. While Frankel has spoken about Shields on the show, she doesn’t want to keep discussing him on The Real Housewives of New York to protect him. As she has said before, he didn’t sign up for a reality show.
And it sounds like Bethenny Frankel is thankful for Carole, who is still a great friends. Radziwill showed up to support her at the Dress for Success event and she recently revealed that she would leave The Real Housewives of New York if it started affecting her friendship with Carole. And it sounds like what she wrote about Radziwill in her blog just a few months ago still holds.

“I really do care about Carole. She is a good friend, she is not competitive nor jealous, and I am grateful for her. I invite her to everything because she doesn’t make a jackass out of herself, she can talk to anyone and she is very observant. She can also be critical, so if something was off she might notice it. As fun as getting dressed up and wearing a wig is, that is just the window dressing. I am a detail person, obsessive, a perfectionist and a lot of work goes into those events. If any of my events or trips were a sh– show, heads would roll. That Skinnygirl Candy is delicious because it has my heart, soul, blood sweat and tears in it,” Bethenny Frankel wrote in her Bravo blog for The Real Housewives of New York.
What do you think of Bethenny Frankel’s comments about Carole? Are you happy that she’s finally happy after her divorce?
