Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel announced that she and husband Jason Hoppy split last weekend and more details about the split are coming to light.
Frankel confirmed the split on Sunday, saying that this is an “immensely painful and heartbreaking time for us.” The two are the parents of Bryn, 2. “We have love and respect for one another and will continue to amicably co-parent our daughter who is and will always remain our first priority,” Frankel said.
A friend of Frankel’s recently spoke with Us Weekly about the split, confirming that no one cheated. “They're both devastated,” the friend said.
“They really tried,” the friend continued. “They grew apart. She is very upset.”
She “feels like she disappointed herself,” another source said. “She disappointed her daughter and she disappointed her fans.”
Frankel actually spoke to People in May about the difficulties of marriage, noting, “Nothing comes easily for me.” She even revealed “Our core issues are wanting the other person to be somebody they are not...Jason is more balanced. He doesn't want to work 24 hours a day. He wants to play golf and go out with his friends.”
Meanwhile, E! News reports that Hoppy was seen still wearing his wedding ring while in New York Thursday.
