The thing I love about reality show gossip is that everyone gets to hear exactly what they want to hear.  At least, that is certainly how it seems to be for the former Bethenny Ever After couple.  Fans of Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy's relationship will be happy to hear that some insiders think they could go the route of NeNe and Gregg Leakes and reconcile.  Of course, these sources predict that it will happen right about the time that Bethenny's talk show debuts.  Funny how that works, right?

On the flip side, for those of you for whom Bethenny grates on your last nerve, other insiders are claiming that Bethenny has already moved on with a mystery colleague.  The scandal!  See, it's a win/win when it comes to gossip!


According to the Examiner, Jason is concerned that his wifey has had a wandering eye of late.  “Jason doesn’t believe Bethenny cheated on him during the marriage, and he would be devastated to find out if she did," says a source close to the couple.  "However, Jason does think that the talk show host did emotionally stray during the final months of their marriage with one of her Skinnygirl colleagues. Bethenny just stopped communicating with Jason and he was her just completely withdraw from the relationship. Jason did see Bethenny interact with one of her Skinnygirl colleagues the way she used to with him.”

The source continues, “The colleague has become a trusted confidante of Bethenny’s and the two have become very close friends.”

Also, according to the insider, Jason doesn't want the publicity that Bethenny seems to crave throughout the divorce process.  The source is referring to Bethenny's recent appearance on Ellen when she said, “I can’t just only be on reality TV and show everything when it’s fairy princess, fairytale and then not take my hits when I have to. I’ve kind of had the best worst year ever.  It’s the highs and the lows, I feel like a failure. I really put it out there. I wanted the fairytale. I thought I had it.”

The insider reveals, “[Jason] wouldn’t be surprised in the least if Bethenny began dating her employee. He doesn’t think Bethenny would go public with the relationship yet because she would get backlash for moving onto another relationship so soon. Bethenny is extremely media savvy. Jason also believes that Bethenny spent time with the colleague who is single during her recent vacation with Bryn in Aspen.”

However, Radar Online is claiming the opposite…that there is still hope for these crazy kids.  A totally different source (obviously) implies that this whole thing could potentially be a roller coaster ride.  The insider tells the site, “It wouldn’t surprise anyone at all if Bethenny and Jason got back together, just like NeNe Lekes did with her husband, Greg, after she filed for divorce. Jason has been spotted still wearing his wedding ring, and there isn’t anything Bethenny wouldn’t do to keep her name in the press."

The source adds, “Bethenny’s talk show is scheduled to appear until this fall, and she doesn’t have any other reality show to do in the meantime. If Jason and Bethenny did get back together, it would generate a ton of positive press, and certainly boost her ratings of the talk show. I have a very hard time believing that Bethenny would put her family through this for publicity. She is devoted to daughter Bryn, and her marriage just wasn’t working. Could they get back together? Absolutely. Anything is possible.”  Um, I don't know about you, but everything about those statements seems to scream publicity stunt!
