Bethenny Frankel announced that she had separated from husband Jason Hoppy just before Christmas. Radar Online reported on Jan. 10 that Hoppy has reason to believe that Frankel has romantic feelings for a Skinnygirl colleague, and may have “emotionally cheated” on him during the last months of their marriage.
During a recent taping on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show, Bethenny Frankel was choking back tears as she told Ellen that she feels like a failure for splitting from Jason Hoppy after than than three years of marriage.
But a source told Radar Online:
“Jason doesn’t believe Bethenny cheated on him during the marriage, and he would be devastated to find out if she did. However, Jason does think that the talk show host did emotionally stray during the final months of their marriage with one of her Skinnygirl colleagues.”
Another insider close to Jason Hoppy said, “Bethenny just stopped communicating with Jason and he saw her just completely withdraw from the relationship. Jason did see Bethenny interact with one of her Skinnygirl colleagues the way she used to with him. The colleague has become a trusted confidante of Bethenny’s and the two have become very close friends.”
Frankel is very media savvy and if she is involved with a coworker, she would not take the relationship public any time soon. Jason believes that Bethenny knows she would receive an incredible amount of public backlash for moving on to another relationship so soon after the public announcement of their split.
A source says, “Jason believes Bethenny spent time with the colleague, who is single, during her recent vacation with Bryn in Aspen.”
Frankel is seeking primary custody of the couple’s two-year-old daughter and she wants Hoppy to pay child support. Hoppy will likely file for joint custody of Bryn.
