Bethenny Jason Hoppy

Bethenny Frankel’s talk show ‘test run’ has come to end…for now.  In a new video she bids farewell to her audience, but is hopeful that the show WILL return full time. The show garnered decent ratings, especially considering it was only airing in a few select markets, and the audience seemed to connect with her no-filter style of talk.  See below the jump for her tearful “goodbye for now” speech.

If Bethenny’s show does get the green light, she and Jason Hoppy will be making the move to L.A., she tells the new print issue of People.  She also opened up about the roller coaster ride her marriage has been on for the last year or so.



Is Bethenny Frankel about to become an official housewife? It seems the answer is yes!

The Real Housewives of New York City star — who has been dating boyfriend Jason Hoppy for 8 months — was spotted wearing a diamond ring in Miami this Saturday.  Her rep confirmed to Usmagazine that an engagement is definitely in the works.

“I can confirm Bethenny and Jason are in love and plan on getting married,” her rep said. “So I guess this is the starter ring.”

38 year old Bethenny admitted to being in love with Jason a while ago saying, “I’m in love.  I’m pretty much certain I’m going to spend the rest of my life with him… I’m really happy.”

So is she officially engaged or not engaged?  According to a source, the ring she’s wearing is not real deal yet, but a proposal is on the way.

“He’s hunting for the ring, but in the meantime this is a place holder or promise ring,” says this source.

Yaah for Bethenny, hopes she gets the official ring and the family she’s always wanted.  Not sure it’s the best idea for her rep to announce her engagement before she actually gets engaged.
