Bethenny Frankel has officially filed for divorce from husband Jason Hoppy.
Frankel and Hoppy announced their separation just days before Christmas saying in a statement to People, "It brings me great sadness to say that Jason and I are separating. This was an extremely difficult decision that as a woman and a mother, I have to accept as the best choice for our family."
Following the announcement of their separation a friend of Frankel’s revealed to People that she is “devastated.”
“There was no one turning point that caused this," the friend adds explaining, “With Bethenny, it was her way or the highway…If you are a person who surrounds yourself with people telling you, 'You are right; we will bend over backwards to make things happen for you,' you will have a tough time in marriage. Marriage doesn't work that way."
TMZ reports that Frankel began the divorce process early last week.
The couple has been the center of speculation stating that their marriage was on the rocks. A source claimed in early December that their marriage had strained, noting that she is focused while Hoppy simply isn’t driven enough.
Hoppy and Frankel share 2 ½ year-old daughter, Bryn.
