Real Housewives Divorces

The franchise may be called Real Housewives, but in actuality a lot of these ladies are not even wives. In fact, viewers got to see many marriages fall apart in front of the reality TV cameras. 

There are some former couples that were just too annoying to watch. I felt a vicarious sense of relief when these people split up. Then there were other splits that I just never saw coming and felt weirdly sad about. Sadly, there have been a lot of Real Housewives breakups over the years.

Celebrate Father’s Day by checking out this list of the hottest reality TV dads. Some of these dads are the star of the show and others are “forced” to be on reality television because of their wives (and others were on short lived reality shows). It doesn’t really matter how they got on reality TV, but they have and we are all enjoying their presence.

A lot of these dads are so scandalous that you probably question why I would even put them on this list, but I have questionable taste in men, so whatever. Then there are those obvious choices on this list that are gorgeous men with solid reputations. It’s a mixed bag to say the least, but please don’t judge me. Just have a good sense of humor and keep it going.

Bethenny Frankel FINALLY Gets some Good News In Long And Drawn-Out Divorce

Finally a bit of good news for Bethenny Frankel in her never-ending divorce saga, which has been going on for over three years now!! Yes, Bethenny’s divorce has now been dragging on longer than the length of the actual marriage!

The Real Housewives of New York star has been forking out $12,000 a month in alimony to Jason Hoppy for the past year, but she can now consider her checkbook a little fuller today as a judge ruled she can finally stop making those payments to her ex!

We were a little wrapped up in other chaos last week because we missed Bethenny Frankel giving the official confirmation that she’s returning to The Real Housewives of New York for season 8!  Bethenny dished in a new interview about her never-ending divorce, her return to RHONY and revealed that she’s battling a few small health issues. 

It was reported back in September that Bethenny had already signed on for season 8, but she now makes it official:  “Yes. I am back [this season], and it is spicy.  You know last year, I had my ‘new car smell’ still on me. And I wasn’t getting into too much trouble. This season, I am knee-deep in the mud.”

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.”

RHONY's Sonja Morgan

Sonja Morgan is debt-free. Well, kinda. The Real Housewives Of New York star has been battling a $7 million dollar bankruptcy judgement for the last few years after a failed film production deal pushed her off a financial cliff.  

Struggling to get-by on diminished assets without losing her NYC townhouse, Sonja has finally been given the clear from a judge to repay her creditors and enter into a bankruptcy-exit plan. Sonja obtained the millions by selling a St. Tropez chateau she won in her divorce proceedings, but the process was temporarily hindered when Sonja’s ex-husband filed a $6.2 million-dollar lawsuit against her claiming he was owed proceeds from the French sale because he had paid upkeep on the home, plus a portion of the Colo. home Sonja was attempting to liquidate.

However Sonja gleefully reveals, “It’s over now. It’s come to an end.”

Bethenny Frankel is the ultimate conundrum – she doesn’t want anyone in her personal business, yet she won’t she stop talking about her personal business! In her latest confessional interview Bethenny talked marriage, spinoffs, and why listening to other people is a big ole mistake. While her acrimonious divorce from Jason Hoppy remains on-going, Bethenny admits she should have followed her gut and not the paycheck Bravo was dangling in front of her nose and never said “I do!”

Speaking to NYU alumni at a special event, the Real Housewives Of New York star talked lessons she’s learned and deterred others from caving to pressures to get married if it’s not the right person. With a 50% national divorce rate, perhaps Bethenny has a point, but I just can’t stop myself from remembering all the talks Bethenny did about finding your happy and the one and how waiting for Jason was the best thing ever. So, if she knew all along Jason wasn’t the one, what was all that about?

Ironically, Bethenny, who got a degree in psychology from NYU, told an inquiring audience member that she always knew her marriage would fail “I think my instinct and gut going into my marriage [knew] it would turn out the way it did,” she confessed. “I could feel it, but I intellectualized it. People are always talking about ‘Do I go with my head or my heart?’ Go with your gut.” That’s so interesting to me… maybe it was a self-fulfilling prophecy then, Bethenny.
