It’s not too surprising that Bethenny Frankel’s daughter Bryn Hoppy is not on Real Housewives of New York. Aside from arguing with other Housewives about their personal lives and promoting her brand, most of Bethenny’s life is shielded from the reality show cameras.
I can’t say that I blame Bethenny after she took the exact opposite route with her exposure and had a spin-off show devoted to her short-lived marriage with Jason Hoppy. I mean she took a pregnancy test on camera. She shared an awful lot back in the day and things did not work out the way that she imagined, so I kind of get why she’s trying to be a little more private these days.
Love her or hate her, Bethenny Frankel‘s been a major source of contention, controversy, and conversation since her return to the show that made her famous. So is she enjoying her renewed stint on reality TV? When asked if she would be back for another season of the Real Housewives of New York, Bethenny seems like she’s made up her mind: “You might not see me back.”
Bethenny claims the RHONY reunion was the proverbial straw that broke the Skinny Girl’s back, noting that “something very dramatic” happened during filming. Since then, Bethenny has taken a step back from her costars, and from the show.
After what feels like five bajillion years, Bethenny Frankel‘s divorce is finalized! Jason Hoppy‘s attorney confirmed that the final divorce settlement had been signed, sealed and delivered today.
Jason’s attorney shared, “Jason is thrilled that this chapter of his life is over; he is extremely pleased with the settlement that was reached. Jason looks forward to the future and enjoying that time privately with family, friends and most important to him, his daughter.”
On her radio show, B Real With Bethenny, she admitted that she’s been crying a lot this week and her emotions are raw. “I’ve had an emotional week this week. I’ve been crying more than last season on Housewives, which I dubbed the crying game. I’ve been going through a gnarly, nasty divorce that has been going on for almost four years. And there are certain things that you think of or that kind of remind you of what you’ve been going through.”
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.
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!
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.”
