I've been wondering why Bethenny Frankel had crawled out of her Skinnygirl hole lately and started doing a lot of press. Then I remembered she has a new self-help book and a talk show to promote! Of course…
Since everyone wants to know about Bethenny's never-ending divorce to Jason Hoppy, she's doing what she does best and spilling her side of the story. I guess Jason was unsuccessful in securing that gag order…
"I'm going through a brutal, brutal time," Bethenny shares with ABC about her divorce and custody dispute. "I'm definitely bruised."
Oh Bethenny Frankel, if only… if only you hadn't staged that big ol' reality TV wedding and spinoff then maybe your very public divorce to Jason Hoppy wouldn't be so brutal!
With the couple battling in court over custody of their daughter Bryn and custody of their recently renovated apartment, Bethenny describes the divorce process as a daily struggle. "It's been hard," she admits to Life & Style. “It’s been difficult to stay sane.”
One may argue that Bethenny has never been sane – part of her charm? – but the divorce process is putting her closer to the brink than ever! To escape she's been vacationing (and possibly canoodling) with a billionaire and putting all her focus on her new talk show, Bethenny.
Page Six is reporting that there is some major discord surrounding the talk show which is helmed by the reality star turned mogul…and Bethenny's attitude is to blame. Sources close to the show tell the site that Bethenny is "very particular and difficult," and it's already turning off some of her employees.
I could be wrong, but I'm going to venture a guess that any celebrity couple who finds themselves facing divorce is just jinxing the situation if they claim to be "amicable." Case in point? Reality star Bethenny Frankel and Bethenny Ever After prop (and Bethenny's soon-to-be-ex-husband) Jason Hoppy.
Since the pair announced their uncontested and friendly split, the duo has been anything but. Friends of the pair are playing quite the game of he said/she said in the tabloids, and there doesn't seem to be an end in sight. Now, new court documents are apparently alleging even uglier undertones…but can we believe it?
She must have taken her sane pills though because the former Real Housewives of New York star, who is definitely one can short of a six-pack of Diet Coke, is now claiming Bethenny's divorce will work out for the best!
"I don't know if it's really that nasty," Jillusional told E! News. "I don't always believe that kind of press."
And she's positive despite allll the reported acrimony and custody disputes everything will be fine in the end! "They'll work it out," Jill declares. "They'll find a way and they'll work it out because they both love their daughter."
Does Jill have her spies over at Bethenny's house again is that how she's got an inside scoop? Hopefully she's right though and the two can put differences aside for Bryn!
In other Jill news, she held a ladies lunch this weekend and invited all of her reality star friends – Kathy and Rich Wakile, Aviva Drescher, Luann de Lesseps and more – see the gallery below!
Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy's divorce proceedings continue to heat up. These two don't show any signs of working things out amicably anytime soon!
The latest snag in their custody battle over Bryn: Bethenny'snew talk show 'bethenny'. Jason is reportedly demanding that Bryn be kept off the show in every and any way. A source tells RadarOnline, “He doesn’t want Bethenny to have Bryn in the audience, or do pre-taped segments for the show. He just doesn’t feel that their daughter should be on display on Bethenny’s talk show.”
