The Real Housewives of New York City’s resident razor-tongued go-getter, Bethenny Frankel opened up this week about the never-ending saga of her tempestuous pending divorce to Jason Hoppy. The ‘skinny gal’ reveals how she is pretty content with her life as is, despite the occasional bricks that are flung her way. In her usual matter-of-fact way of seeing things, Bethenny states, “Life is roses, it’s got petals and it’s got thorns,” and that through it all, she still manages to get out of bed each morning with a purpose.
The gritty multimillionaire reality star discussed how her divorce has been such a toxic experience for her, she likened it to “a drop of poison in the ocean.” Bethenny went on to explain her uncompromisingly direct statement. “Am I feeling it? No. But it’s there. I mean, it doesn’t weigh down on me every minute of the day, it’ll flair up sometimes, like when people have arthritis or something, but it’s there. It’s chronic. It’s not that emotionally draining, it does come up at times; you have to really just be very zen about it. You have to just say, ‘This is all supposed to be happening, it makes me stronger.”
Bethenny and Jason were married for three years and produced a child together, Bryn Hoppy. The couple’s relationship was even featured on a reality show (no surprise), Bethenny Ever After. Since the pair parted ways back in 2012, Bethenny has openly claimed, how the proceedings have been excruciatingly painful for her. She has revealed how Jason has tried to make her life a living hell and there were periods where the angst of the divorce was taking a toll on Bethenny’s demeanor. The once hip, urban chic spit-fire began to look haggard, drawn and even on her reality show, there were periods when she appeared weepy, fragile and anxiety-ridden.
Now Bethenny seems to have come around full circle and appears to have a brighter outlook with regards to seeing some light at the end of her marital tunnel. She tells Hollywood Life, “Now I just feel centered and more focused and calm and happier. I can’t even imagine when it’s really over how happy I’ll be. I feel good. And I’m not the person who’s like, ‘I’m in a great place right now,’ that’s not me. I’ll be the first one to say, ‘This sucks.’ But now the million dollar question remains…will Bethenny ever consider walking down the aisle yet again? The snarky brunette offers an emphatic response, . “No, I wouldn’t consider it. Legally, no. Absolutely not. Unless it’s a billionaire maybe [laughs]. No, but not even with a billionaire, because I don’t want to be in a contract in a relationship. I’ve gotten burned by being in a contract in a relationship – I’m not doing that again.”
Well alrighty now!
