Bethenny Frankel filed for divorce from Jason Hoppy last year just before Christmas. She announced that she had tried everything to make her marriage work, but that she couldn't keep fighting. She also revealed that she was heartbroken and just wanted privacy. Now, 9 months later, she is still dealing with her divorce. According to a new Radar Online report published on Sept. 16, Bethenny Frankel supposedly didn’t take the divorce deal that the judge put on the table, where she would be sharing custody of Bryn.
Instead, she supposedly decided to fight it out in court. While Jason Hoppy wants shared custody, Frankel wants sole custody. “The judge indicated it would be in Bethenny’s best interests if she were to sign off on an agreement, instead of rolling the dice at trial. She didn’t deal,” the source adds. One can imagine that she doesn’t want to deal with her ex-husband for the next many years for the sake of their daughter.
On the other hand, she did choose to film her talk show in New York so she could be closer to her daughter. She could have easily chosen to film in Los Angeles, where she would have to travel back and forth with Bryn for the sake of Jason. Frankel has been vocal about the split, telling Good Day New York recently, ”I have to say, divorce is the most difficult thing you could ever go through in your entire life. I never heard how excruciating it is.”
Jason has yet to comment on the divorce, but one can imagine that he just wants the best for his daughter. What do you think of her divorce drama?
