Oh Bethenny Frankel – this is a very sad attempt at damage control. I'm sure she has her Frankelzombies out in full-force defending her actions, but just in case the message isn't coming across the soon-to-be-divorced former reality star is speaking out about ending her marriage to Jason Hoppy.
Wanna know the most surprising thing of all? She's pretty much blaming Jason for making the divorce hard. Start rolling your eyes now! "I really did think it would be amicable. I absolutely did," Bethennywhines to People. "I wrote that entire [divorce] statement myself. And every single word, I believed to be true."
Both parties have filed legal documents saying they agree to the divorce based on an "irretrievable breakdown" of their marriage. However there are still lose ends being worked out, reports TMZ. Despite a prenup signed before they married, a division of property is still being negotiated. Also not finalized is a custody agreement concerning daughter Bryn, who turns three next month.
If this is true then Bethenny Frankel needs to hire one of those PR wizards STAT because she is beyond damage control at this point!
Bethenny and ex-husband Jason Hoppy recently met in court for a fraught meeting to begin divorce proceedings, including custody decisions for their daughter Bryn and living arrangements while they are separated. Witnesses say Jason appeared relaxed, but Bethenny appeared – well Bethenny is just Bethenny, so I'll leave it at that!
Allegedly negotiations between the estranged spouses did not go well. Now RadarOnline reports that the Bethenny Ever After star is refusing to a 50/50 custody agreement with Jason. If you recall, she was the one who took the first strike and requested full custody of Bryn!
It's been quite a week for Bethenny Frankel, especially after Friday's hearing in her divorce from Jason Hoppy. Now, she's focusing on more positive things, like her upcoming talk show. The Bethenny Ever After star calls her hour-long daily sitdown "a public girls' night out," and she's not shy about the topics she plans to highlight…and those she plans to bypass.
Speaking to ABC about the premise for her show, Bethenny explains, “I just have found as you get older, women insulate a little more because they’re just so busy and have so much going on. They don’t really get the chance to really sit down and talk about their marriages, their money problems, their sex problems, infidelity issues. That’s what my talk show is about.”
After last week's divorce hearing, Bethenny Frankel and her daughter Bryn headed down to Miami to enjoy a little vacation together. Bethenny showed off her bikini body in a bright blue string bikini and the next day, a zebra striped one-piece swimsuit. Vote for your favorite look below!
Bethenny has been working out with celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson (responsible for the bodies of Gwyneth Paltrow and others). Do you think it's paying off?

Kim Kardashian isn't the only psuedo celeb facing off against her ex-husband in court as of late. Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy met face-to-face in court on Friday to begin their divorce negotiations. While the couple first expressed the desire to keep things amicable, that quickly went down hill as they battle over custody of daughter Bryn and their apartment.
The Bethenny Ever After star and her ex-husband were discussing financial declarations and confidentiality agreements through their legal teams while avoiding each other at all costs. After the initial meetings, the pair went before the judge, and then conferenced privately.

Famewhore puppetmaster AndyCohen (who may or may not be taking over the world in a devious plot to inundate society with faux-blonde, surgically altered, fembots who'd do anything for their 15 minutes) recently did an interview where he talked all things Housewives.
Andy continued to insist the Housewives franchise wouldn't be adding any locations – at least not at the present time – and dished on why some ladies break-out into spinoff territory.
"Well, I mean, I always say 'Never say never,'" the WatchWhatHappensLive host tells TheWrap about extending the Housewives map. "But, I think we're pretty good and I still do think we are pretty good. I mean, we've got six going and it's great."
