Bethenny Frankel: “Divorce is the most difficult thing you could ever go through in your entire life”
I’m sure some might argue that death is the most difficult thing you could ever go through in your entire life, but whatevs.
Bethenny Frankel, 42, is in the middle of a divorce from her husband of three years, Jason Hoppy. This was her second divorce, so methinks she should be a little more used to it. But what do I know. Bethenny and Jason have a three year old daughter together, Brynn.
Anyway, Bethenny co-hosted ‘Good Day New York’ on Thursday, and the reality star opened up about her current divorce.
The 42-year-old reality star expressed her grievances to morning anchor Greg Kelly on Thursday while guest-hosting on Ã¢â¬ÅGood Day New York.Ã¢â¬Â
Ã¢â¬ÅItÃ¢â¬â¢s rough,Ã¢â¬Â she said. Ã¢â¬ÅI have to say, divorce is the most difficult thing you could ever go through in your entire life.Ã¢â¬Â
While the creator of Skinnygirl cocktails expected the road to divorce from her husband of two years, Jason Hoppy, would be a bumpy one, she didnÃ¢â¬â¢t know how bad it would feel.
Ã¢â¬ÅI never heard how excruciating it is,Ã¢â¬Â she described.
Frankel went on to say that the whole experience of divorce was a Ã¢â¬Åbrutal, unnatural situationÃ¢â¬Â that she Ã¢â¬Ånever thoughtÃ¢â¬Â sheÃ¢â¬â¢d find herself in.
But amid all the rain FrankelÃ¢â¬â¢s found sunshine in her Ã¢â¬ÅamazingÃ¢â¬Â 2-year-old daughter, Bryn.
Ã¢â¬ÅKids make you do things youÃ¢â¬â¢d never do,Ã¢â¬Â she said. Ã¢â¬ÅThey bring out the best in you.Ã¢â¬Â
And divorce can sometimes bring out the worst.
After Frankel filed for divorce from Hoppy in early January, he counter-filed three weeks later with aggressive demands. Her scorned exÃ¢â¬â¢s papers requested primary custody of Bryn, child support, medical and dental expenses, and exclusive use of the coupleÃ¢â¬â¢s Tribeca loft in New York City.
Some can speculate his demands are the result of a broken and bitter heart as Hoppy was spotted in a New York City park with Bryn on Monday still wearing his wedding ring.
Ã¢â¬ÅWe 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,Ã¢â¬Â Frankel previously said in a statement. Ã¢â¬ÅThis is an immensely painful and heartbreaking time for us.Ã¢â¬Â
