Bethenny Frankel

Files for Divorce

1/6/2013 2:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0105-bethenny-frankel-jason-hoppy-gettyBethenny Frankel is taking her split from Jason Hoppy to the next level ... she's filed for divorce, TMZ has learned.

According to court records in New York, Frankel began the divorce process by filing a summons for divorce -- the first step in the divorce process -- earlier this week.

Frankel and Hoppy announced their separation last month, but the Skinnygirl mogul never used the dreaded D-word ... saying at the time, "It brings me great sadness to say that Jason and I are separating. This was an extremely difficult decision that as a woman and a mother, I have to accept as the best choice for our family."

The way he looked at her always felt like nails on a chalkboard to me. They are too different in background to get along. Somone mentioned that she was uncomfortable around his family and friends. Maybe that was because they were judgemental or couldn't really accept her. She is an Upper East Side Jewish entrepreneur from an independent background and they are Catholic firemen from a clannish background. That isn't going to mix well unless someone really swallows their pride or stops being spiteful.


This guy looked about as much fun as a soggy potato chip.

Bethany what the heck are you doing. Jason is one of the best people in your life, don't blow it. Since you became alittle famous and rich, you can now cast the good people in your life out the door. Watching your reality show, I have realized how very selfish you are. It your way or the highway.
Nor you daughter will grow up without a father's influence in her life. You come from a broken home and that is what you will be teaching your daughter that when things get tough, file for divorce instead of working it out. Apparently your vows meant nothing. Jason and his family gave you an atmosphere of love and togetherness. A strong family bond. But once again you didn't come from that and maybe you don't know how to be in a family life style. I do wish you well, but wish you would re-consider what you are doing. Bless you all.

I hope he gets paid handsomely. He put up with a lot from this shrew. Maybe it's a good thing she miscarried last year. Only would have made the divorce harder

Bethanny is gonna die ALONE!!..She is so bitter and scorned..She treated Jason's parents like CRAP! To have grandparents full of that much love for their grandchild is AWESOME! People dont know how to appreciate good things! Jason is BETTER OFF without that screaming banchee!

This dude is GAY...I have thought that since I first heard him on TV and watched his mannerisms. I am sure she isn't easy to live with but this guy needs to just face the truth....

He should have known you can't fix broke and this girl is busted up. Maybe congratulations are in order since she has now recruited two more broke downs...soon to be ex-husband and confused daughter.

Bethany was constantly combative towards Jason on the show. She was jealous of how he seemed to others as she put it. She seemed to know she had an issue and yet she created drama between them.

She should be very careful about how repulsive she is coming off with these very selfish divorce demands. Don't underestimate the publics opinion...Look What's Happening to Matt Lauer.
Just saying!!!

Bethenny, you decised a long time ago your marriage would never work, because you are so " damaged". You fulfilled your own prophecy and continue to tear down your soul. I hope you can stop & concentrate on what your soul really wants..truthfully wants.....all your branding won't mean a damn thing when people who truly love you are gone. This is so very sad!!

Bethanny is a money-grabbing b--ch. I followed her on TV from the time she met Jason thru their wedding, etc.
Once she was married she never includfed him in her business. There really wasn't even room for him in the apartment. m She OUTGREW him instantly.
Now she wants to take him 'over the coals'. She has so much and she wants to make him PAY!!
I dunno why.
Bethenny only loves Bethenny.
I fell sorry for that child.
