“The Real Housewives of New York” fans were shocked when Bethenny Frankel announced that her marriage to Jason Hoppy was over shortly before Christmas. She announced that they were indeed separating. However, just weeks later, she filed for divorce papers. And now, according to a new US Weekly report released on Jan. 7, Bethenny Frankel has been spotted stepping out in New York City. Since filing for divorce, she has been tweeting with fans, and getting support from those who want the best for her. And she isn’t hiding out when it comes to her divorce. She was spotted in track pants, what appears to be UGG boosts and a zip-up sweater while walking her dog, Cookie.
Although it had only been 24 hours since she had filed for divorce when the picture was taken, Bethenny Frankel is spotted with a tiny smirk on her face. Perhaps the support of her fans has her thankful that she has hundreds of people to talk to during this difficult time. When she released her separation statement before Christmas, she highlighted that the focus from that moment on was the couple’s daughter.
“We 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," Bethenny revealed in a statement. "This is an immensely painful and heartbreaking time for us." And while Bethenny is getting plenty of support from her fans, she does feel she has let them down. Are you surprised that Bethenny filed for divorce last week?
