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."

She always sounds like she has spit in her mouth and it is so gross. She needs to learn how to be a wife before she decides to get married, poor guy.

I really would like to know how Jason is. I hope he knows that thousands of women out there are cheering at this because HE deserves an awesome, cool, beautiful woman without issues. One that loves him and his amazing parents. Trust, it gave good girls chills watching that witch Bethanny have a great man like Jason and treat him like crap. Yay! He's free! Ladies, let at him!!!!

She is ruthless and got all she needed from that nice dude. What drew him to her, we will never know. Few observations on her: - she said in RHONY that she did NOT have breast implants, when a blind person could see that she does. She also has a nose job. - she clearly has bulimia. She is obsessed with food, but stick thin. She's obsessed with controlling food. Her jaw muscles reveal severe bulimia, and during her pregnancy it guy ridiculous. Look up old pix. It's sad. - the amount that skinny girl sold for was fabricated and completely overblown. You can read early articles that trace the evolution of the rumor that she made $20, $50 or $100 million from the sale. It was a rumor started on a blog and then picked up by mainstream press and parroted in the rest of the press. The reality is she sold it for $5-8 million. She bought a $4.9 million condo in TriBeCa which is great, but that's not pricey by Manhattan standards, and she would have spent much more if she had made $50mm on the sale. - anyone notice that she kisses ass of those who will advance her career or that will blindly kiss her ass, and she derides everyone else who doesn't fit in one of those categories. - did anyone notice on her old show that they claimed she lived in TriBeCa when she lived really in that taint / grundle nether-region north of Canal and east of 6th Ave.

Jason is nothing more than collateral damage. We could all look back and find "mistakes" our parents made. That doesn't justify all the boo hoo my life is so fkd up so lemme throw my family under the bus complaining she does. That in itself should have been a giant red flag for him! She played him on national tv and everybody saw it. Get your daughter Jason and don't let her mother corrupt her mind too.

She's just a hotter version of that nutter on RHOC vicki. Seems the roles are reversed these days and guys are duping ladies for a change.
