Bethenny Frankel is opening up about her divorce from Jason Hoppy. Though they announced their separation in December 2012, it wasn’t until six months ago the divorce was final. Four long years of legal wrangling took its toll.
“It’s been a little gnarly. It’s been a rough couple of years that felt endless and I swear this is it. It’s going to be behind me. I’ve taken charge of my own life. I’ve taken steps that this bad chapter is behind me,” the RHONY star dished to Bravo’s Personal Space.
Though Bethenny hasn’t had time to celebrate her dis-union, she plans to have a giant celebration to honor her freedom.
“I haven’t celebrated the end of the chapter because it isn’t totally over, but I will. I’m starting to feel that light and that lift in the bad energy and I will celebrate. I will celebrate in the most gigantic way — who knows how? Carole [Radziwill] will definitely be there. But I’m going to celebrate; I’m almost ready now.”
In the meantime, Bethenny spends as much time with daughter, Bryn, as possible. She works around Bryn’s schedule, continuing to make her Skinnygirl line a success.
“I find balance in spending quality time with my daughter — giving her love, being there for her at pick up and when I’m not working — well when it’s my time with her, when she’s not at school, I’m with her. When she’s at school or it’s not my time, that’s when I work.”
So, did Bethenny squander all that money on lawyers? Should she have just given Jason a settlement and called it a day?
