According to several sources (although not confirmed), Bethenny Frankel is divorcing her husband, Jason Hoppy.
Jason and Bethenny have been married for two years, and have been fighting publicly on their show the whole time. (This from what I’ve read. I don’t actually watch her show – she really drives me INSANE. I could handle her when she was on ‘The Real Housewives of NY’, but once she was given her own show by Bravo, I couldn’t take it anymore. I just find her insanely annoying.)
According to Star (I know), Bethenny is filing for divorce – and is already dating a business partner, Matt Hess. Apparently a big nasty fight is brewing over Bethenny’s money – since she’s made a TON since they married.
It’s no secret reality star Bethenny Frankel and her husband Jason Hoppy have had their fair share of marital problems, but it looks like things could get real ugly in a hurry.
Bethenny and Jason have both met with divorce lawyers, according to this week’s edition of Star, and one source tells the magazine, “They are going to get a divorce… it’s imminent.”
This week’s Star also drops the bombshell that things between Bethenny and her Skinnygirl business partner Matt Hesse might have gotten less professional — and more personal — in their dealings.
Bethenny and Matt said plenty with their body language as far back as three months ago, an eyewitness tells Star, when the two grabbed a meal at Philippe Chow’s Philippe restaurant in New York City.
“They walked through the restaurant with his chest pressed up against her back, and she leaned back and he whispered in her ear,” according to the eyewitness. “Then, they went up the stairs to a private dining area together, literally with their arms wrapped around each other.”
Jason is just biding his time to expose the former Real Housewives of New York City star for her two-timing ways, the insider said.
“Jason has said that when he is ready to officially file for divorce, he is ready to call Bethenny out on her infidelity and name Matt in the papers,” said the insider, adding Matt has said there’s nothing going on between he and Bethenny.
Jason’s and Bethenny’s well-documented inability to get along and the newfound whispers of cheating could set up a $100 million divorce battle, as Bethenny has cleaned up in her entrepreneurial endeavors with her Skinnygirl line of products — and Jason wants his piece of the pie!
Jason “feels absolutely entitled to half of her fortune,” the source said.”He feels betrayed and doesn’t care about Bethenny’s financial fallout once he gets what he wants.
What do you think? Are they really divorcing? If so – who’s actually surprised? Can you imagine being married to a person like Bethenny? I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with her – the world needs people like that. I just can’t imagine being in a marriage with someone like her. It would be so hard!
