Bethenny Frankel's Mother Publicly Slams Her Marriage

Round Two! Bethenny Frankel and her mother have been slamming each other in the media for the last several days. Now, Bethenny’s mom is targeting her daughter’s marriage and hinting at infidelity!

Even though Bethenny Frankel has had zero contact with her mother, Bernadette Burke, in recent years, it hasn’t kept her from publicly criticizing her daughter’s marriage — and implying that she’s going to cheat on her husband, Jason Hoppy! “His problem is he’s too nice, and she’ll grab another nice one, he is replaceable,” Bernadette said in a interview with RadarOnline. “Nice is boring and Bethenny gets bored with nice. I know she is bored because I get bored watching him.”

During the second season of Bethenny Ever After, the 41-year-old Skinnygirl creator has been more open about her relationship struggles. In last week’s episode, Bethenny and Jason received a counseling session aboard a boat. “We’re off course,” Bethenny revealed. “That’s what we’re doing in our lives: we keep having the same argument over and over again.”

Even though Bethenny and Jason sought professional help to resolve their marriage problems, Bernadette is not convinced that the relationship will last.” She doesn’t have any respect for marriage because she has never seen good marriages,” Bernadette explains. “She cheated on her first husband after her first couple of months of marriage.”

“She would never have married Jason but she wanted to have a child and the timing was right. She got what she wanted out of this, she married because of public opinion.”

Sadly, the scathing insults didn’t stop there. Bernadette also attacked Bethenny’s parenting skills, claiming that “she has always hired people to take care of the baby, she doesn’t take care of that child, she does photo shoots.”

Never one to back away from conflict, Bethenny is set to confront Bernadette in an upcoming episode of Bethenny Ever After in which she will viciously state that she “hates her!”

Do you think Bethenny’s mom has a right to voice her opinion or should she just keep quiet? Sound off below!

Gee, what a surprise. Bethany leaves another body in her wake. She is really mean spirited. Jasion was too good for her. Jason, run away as fast as you can.
As for her mother, I feel sorry for her . I can just imagine what a rotten daughter Bethany was/is.

You really make it appear so easy with your presentation but I in finding this matter to be actually something which I believe I would never understand. It kind of feels too complex and extremely huge for me. I’m taking a look ahead for your subsequent post, I will attempt to get the hold of it!

HI Bethany,(Bethany Ever After)
I have been watching tonites show on your trip to Cabo but I had to put in on pause to write to you both.
First I think you both are sooo cute. I am a mother of three all in their early 40’s. My daughter was born 1970 same age as you. The one thing I wanted my children to feel growing up was love and to know that they are needed in my life. That was and still is important. I was told once that the first thing a child should see is a smile from the parents.!!! Well that is true.
Bryn will feel what you feel when you are around her.
I watched tonite and for the first few minutes of the taping you never smiled once, not when you were greeted at the hotel. The staff seemed very accomodating to you and your group, no smile from you. I saw that your husband was but not you. You had Bryn laying by you and no smile. It seemed that this trip was to enjoy and to reconnect with each other well there is more than just you two there is that sweet child, Byne. They will learn all the behaviors that the two of you bring to this family.
You may not have had that growing up but you can give that to your daughter as a gift for her to remember always.
Your husband is fighting to make a good and happy life for you two. I see that in almost each show.
That is what he had growing up and that in itself can be your gift from him. You seem to be fighting to creative a life you never had. Shame on the persons that left that for you to deal with. I wish I could hug you and tell you that you really have what you have always wanted right in front of you.. You are very successful but that may come and go BUT THE BIGGEST EVESTMENT YOU WILL EVER HAVE IS IN YOUR FAMILY.
My husband gave that to me when we got married, but last year he died and I miss him every day. But when I think of him I SMILE. And our child do too.
Do this for you, your husband and Bryn .
I would rather see both of you enjoying your success and be having a good and happy life than trying to fix something that are not fixable

An Avid Viewer.

Bethany’s mother needs to stay out of her business. She has worked so hard and finally is seeing success and now her mom has an opinion? Turn your back Bethany, you don’t need negative in your life. Your mom is a horrible person.

I think that Bethenny, knows her mom all too well. That is why when her mother called to see the baby she said “no”. At that time she shut the mom off completely. For that reason the mom is lashing out. If her mom had good intentions she would never have done an interview like that. She does not even know Jason much less her own daughter and never has. In order to get the “grandma”, role she would have to start from scratch and she does not have a natural mothering or nurturing quality. So Bethenny, was right leave it alone .

Perhaps if Bethany sues the old bag for slander,she will shut her mouth. What a horrible excuse for a mother. Sometimes blood is not thicker than water. Cut off and done.

I truly believe that Bethenny’s mom is super JEALOUS of Bethenny’s life, her amazing success, her marriage and the relationship between Bethenny and Bryn. Bernadette needs to keep her mouth shut. She is not in Bethenny’s life anymore and if I was Bethenny I would NEVER allow Bernadette to be a part of my life after all of the trash talking she has done. It is simply disgusting that a mom can speak so badly of her own flesh and blood. I can see the pain in Bethenny’s eyes and face because I live with the same pain in my own life. I don’t allow anyone who is out to bring me down in my life. All Bernadette is out to do is to make this dirty money by selling these outrageous lies about Bethenny and Jason. Bernadette has NEVER even met Jason and has not seen Bethenny since she was 14 years old. I truly believe that Bernadette is so jealous and she cannot stand it. Bethenny.. I think you are AMAZING, super smart and I wish you and Jason all the luck with your lives together. I know how hard it is to let go of a parent but your mom is out to hurt you and I would not give her the satisfaction of replying to her ugly stories that she is making money from. Just completely ignore your mom, don’t respond when you read or hear that she has said these ugly statements and lies. Silence is deadly and that will get to her 100 times more then if you respond to her. She is obviously jealous because she watches your show and has to do all she can to drag you down, or try to anyway to the media. It sickens me. Bernadette, you should be ashamed of yourself for talking this way about your daughter. No wonder why Bethenny HATES you. I would hate you too! Mind your own business and leave Bethenny alone. You were a terrible mother and I am proud that Bethenny has turned out as amazing as she is despite the fact that she had a very damaged mother and childhood. Bethenny, you are not defined by your terrible past and your betraying mother. Good luck with your business, your beautiful family and your life. Terri

Well, its Dec 23 and the headline is: Bethenny is splitting. It was so obvious and guess what, her mother was right, call it jealousy? Or perhap Bethenny’s mother knows her daughter better than the public did. Become your own hero because people will fool you.

Bethenny’s mom is such a NYJAP! So negative and complaining. I am surprised that Bethenny survived such negativity. Why do either mother or daughter talk about each other in such ways? Bethenny is out for the money as we all know. She’s making it and God bless.I think the mother must be so jealous that she could spit. I do think that there is some truth to what the mother has said though.Bethenny is a firecracker and Jason is plain. I hope that they make it successfully for Bryn and each other. Maybe that is why Bethenny doesn’t want to get too close to Jason’s parents…she knows she’s gonna dump him. I hope not. Opposites attract after all.

It’s ironic how so many people have so many negative comments when none of them have walked in her shoes. I see the pain in her eyes when she speaks to her therapist.So much damaged has been done psycalogically and emotinally by her parents. I know all to well how she feels i’ve been in her shoes in my own life. but this is about Bethenny and her loving husband. they are trying everything to keep there marriage solid and i have no doubt the emmense love they have for brin. geeeezz Her mother should stay out of her life likes she’s been doing .. leave them alone and let them live there lives as they see fit. Betheny i think your an awesome loving human being and mother and wife. No one’s perfect. he who has never sinned cast the first freaking stone. All in all Betheny the pain i see in your eyes is the same pain i experience every day. you have my support . Blessings to you ,Jason and Brin. Kindly. Deborah Marie.

I believe she has a right to say what she wants but I do think it is very mean. We never hear Bethany’s mother side of the story and there may be more to her past than we know. All we ever hear is how bad her mother was and she is always slamming her mother so her mother has a right to speak out too. I really do like Bethany and have alot of respect for her because she wanted a career and she went after it and got it but I do not like the way she is always dogging her husband and just from watching the both of them on TV she would be a very hard person to live with and I
see his faults too but she has let fame go to her head. I don’t think her mother is right about the way she is with her child because I can see how much she really loves Brin and her mother should not say that about her. I think Jason and Bethany needs time away from TV and the public if she wants to save her marriage.

I agree. I suspect that Bethenny has her own mental issues in the way she perceives her childhood. For all the success, Bethenny still think she did nothing wrong by attacking her mom before her mom ever said anything. Her mom was only 21 and alone with the baby. I do not expect too much and as a daughter would not ever publicly humiliate my mom mo matter what. Her mom did raise her and Bethenny did attend her skating lessons and got educated and traveled allot. Her mom never abended her. Even her father did attend to her needs at lease financially. She did have a step dad that was present in her life. Just the fact that Bethenny was capable of throwing her entire family under the bus so viciously with zero regard how it may offend her mother is troublesome.
You can not justify your less-then-perfect childhood as a reason to call your mother and alcoholic, ugly, shameful and tell the world that you hate your mother. For a public figure that Bethenny is it is exposing Bethenny shortcomings, not her mother’s. In that respect I admire what Khloe and Lama are doing to reconcile with his father. Lamar is learning how to mentor his father and forgive him and understand him and simply love him despite it all. Bethenny seems too far from this kind of attitude. That is what troubles people. She just not a bigger person. And her childhood is not an excuse to be this small digs-throwing at anybody person. And one more thing. When Bethenny says that money is garbage, she offends all of us working our life’s to the bones to be financially secure.
Please Bethenny, keep your money wisely and be respectful of the fortunes you own.

Your on crack. Forgive my butt. Lamar is a fool. He should throw his father under a bus literally. I think it’s amazing how quick people are to forgive the bad parent. It’s a slap in the face to the mother. Get off your high self ritious horse.

I agree, you’re on crack. Also: to the original commenter, “nevermind,”: learn to spell. And learn what the correct word choices are. Perhaps you should be doing that instead of watching reality TV.

Ms Birk only sees a small portion of Bethenny’s life, and that is only t
hrough the media’s eyes. Unless she has a direct relationship with the Hoppys, she should refrain from.commenting about their relationship. Personally, I think this woman is jealous. Bethenny’s marriage may not be perfect, but who has a perfect marriage? This woman has been married way to many times to be commenting on anyone’s marriage. She needs to just go away!

SHe should never throw her own daughter under the bus like that! Even if Jason is a bore. He is. He’s a whinny wimp. We all see it. Shes way too strong for him. HOWEVER for her mom to say she’ll cheat is BS. AND that she doesnt take care of Brynn? How the hell does she know what goes on! Bethanny doesnt talk to her! Shes never seen Brynn! ugh Bethanny is just fine without her mom and who cares if she hasnt seen a good marriage. A lot of us havent! Marriage is becoming obsolete. You will see.. give it 10 more yrs. Noones gonna be doing it anymore.

Bethany has made it this far without her mother’s opinion on life in general let alone on the way that she raises her own children. I thought the children were supposed to envy mother’s not the other way around. I believe bethany have the right to voice her opinions out loud in public. I see nothing wrong with her life or her marriage nothing is perfect nor will it ever be. Just because her mother gave up on her first marriage doesn’t mean bethany well do the same.If anything we learn from the show is that bethany is not a quitter she’s a fighter for what you believe then. and I believe she believes in her marriage and family. People that want what they well never have attack your weaknesses and shame on her for doing so.
