Divorces take forever, don’t they?
Since they split so long ago (December 2012, to be exact) I think we all kinda forgot that Bethenny Frankel has been in the middle of a pretty long divorce battle with ex-husband Jason Hoppy. And aside from maybe kinda dating Eric Stonestreet, it feels as though she’s taking it in stride. The one thing the 45-year-old RHONY star can’t abide by, however, is messing with her 5-year-old daughter Bryn. She’s doing her best to keep Bryn grounded, but hey, when you’re a resident of divorce city, there ain’t no guarantees…
In a new interview with People, Frankel opens up about how the divorce has affected her and her kid:
“I feel like I’m on the 18th hole of the golf round now. I feel like we’re here. I feel like justice is being served. It’s being handled the way it should be. It’s gone on way too long. I feel like I survived something. When it all shakes down, I’ll be a woman who has not kind of just felt backed into a corner. I stayed strong and I did what was best for myself, my daughter, for women.”
The entrepreneur added that normalcy is a number one priority when it comes to her little girl:
“I think kids need stability and to feel calm and proud of their home. She’s an amazing, amazing little girl. She’s so happy. She’s not really aware of what’s going on, which is great. I’m proud of that. It has been by far the most difficult thing I’ve ever been through.”
Phew, if having a reality star mom isn’t bad enough, remembering a traumatic divorce is probably not good, either. Bryn, hope you grow up happy and uh, normal, if that’s possible…
