I’m not sure if anyone is as heartbroken over the breakup of Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy‘s marriage as I am. Having been an avid fan of the two since they appeared on “Real Housewives of New York,” watching their marriage unravel on “Bethenny” made me wonder if love truly does exist.
US Weekly reported that Hopper was spotted strolling around New York City on Thursday, but not with his soon-to-be ex-wife and their daughter, Bryn, who were seen out and about in Manhattan the same day. I have to admit, I’m holding onto some kind of hope that this can be worked out; if for nothing else than for Bryn’s sake, I like to imagine the two celebs have it in them to reconcile their differences.
Unfortunately, I don’t know if my dreams for the couple will come true. Frankel’s original divorce papers were answered by equally aggressive requests from Hoppy, who asked for primary custody of Bryn among other things. It always seemed on the show that although the two definitely had their disagreements, the love they had for one another would bridge their differences and provide a solution to their marital problems. I had real faith in their ability to stop bickering about Frankel’s career (she is the creator of the SkinnyGirl brand) or Hoppy’s sometimes annoying (though always harmless) antics, but slowly it became apparent that the couple was falling into the trap of so many other celebrities with reality TV shows who preceded them. When Frankel publicly announced the couple’s separation on December 23rd, I felt like I was personally a part of the split.
Especially because I once looked up to Frankel as someone who can balance a fabulous career with a happy family life, I find the news about this divorce very disheartening. And the recent rumors that the split is getting more ugly by the second makes it even worse!
How do you feel about Frankel and Hoppy’s divorce? Do you think their split should be blamed on the couple’s television stardom? Or do you think the cause is something else, like Frankel’s obsession with her career? Let us know your thoughts!Tags: Bethenny, bethenny frankel, Jason Hoppy
