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."

backfire    

It served for a good storyline that allowed Bethenny to break out into her own reality show that led to the baby bump that is so popular these days....she will move onward and upward and her face with get tigher and taunter until the last vestages of authenticity are gone forever.

Just from watching the show, it didn't bode well for a long lasting relationship. She was such a tortured soul. She found it very difficult to be around people, in general. It was difficult for her to let her in-laws into her life, as well as Jason's friends. She just wanted to chill with her daughter and husband and shut out the rest of the world when she wasn't busy with her business empire. He was quite happy to spend time with his friends and relatives whenever possible and really had a hard time understanding why it was such a chore for her to visit his parents, or visit with friends. I can understand his frustration with her, but I could also understand that she had difficulty with people and it was agony for her to be that open. It frightened her. She worked very hard on her issues, through her weekly visits with her therapist, but in the end, she just couldn't be the sort of wife he needed. Sad.

she will be very happy, she has all those millions and that seems to be her first love (well right behind herself). watched the show a couple of times and it was stressfu watching her treatment of him and his family. she would not let anyone be happy or relaxed everything was a big deal with all her demands and issues. she seemed to dislike anyone being happy or her not being the center of attention. but she is very rich, so it can be all about her.

Yeah, anyone who watched the show could see that it was only a matter of time. They were always fighting -and VERY different people.
