Bethenny Frankel Putting Daughter Bryn First After Divorce

Bethenny Frankel Divorce

Fresh off her split from husband Jason Hoppy, the Skinnygirl mogul is focusing on Bryn, 2 — and making a major personal sacrifice for the sake of her daughter. Read on for more details.

Bethenny Frankel and her husband of nearly three years Jason Hoppy decided to officially call it quits on Dec. 23. Now, the businesswoman and reality star is planning for her hardest move yet — being a single mom to her daughter Bryn, 2.

There will be no custody battle for Bryn,” a course close to the Skinnygirl mogul told Life & Style magazine. “That would be the last thing either one of them would want to do for their family. They would never let it get to a point where there was a battle or where one of them was taking Bryn away from the other.”

And even though she has been completely career-minded her entire life, the source said she loves her daughter more than anything — and is willing to make sacrifices in her work to be there for her little girl.

Her talk show series Bethenny got picked up for 2013, and the former Real Housewives of New York star had planned to tape in LA where most of the celebrities live. But now, she is choosing to film in New York City, so she and her daughter can be close to Jason — and the exes can effectively co-parent.

Bethenny & Jason’s Marriage Officially Ended

After months of reports that their marriage was on the rocks, Bethenny made a heart-wrenching public statement just before Christmas.

“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,” Bethenny said on Dec. 23.

“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,” the statement continues. “This is an immensely painful and heartbreaking time for us.”

What do YOU think of Bethenny filming in New York instead of LA HollyMoms? Do YOU think she’ll be a good single mom?

She is an image of her mother is all ways. Poor Jason stepped in the sh*t pool when he went swimming with her.

It brings me great sadness that Bethenny and Jason are splitting up. They seemed to have great potential for a wonderful marriage. Bryn will be strong like her mommy as most children overall are resilient. I pray that they will both continue to put Bryn first. All feelings aside, I appreciate their honesty throughout their relationship; in the good and the bad. You guys will be missed. You were my favorite reality couple!! God Bless you both and Bryn!
Can’t wait until your show comes to North Carolina.

Yours Truly,

The only reason their marriage did not work is that there was only one person trying. Bethenny is very funny but she is also the most self centered person I have ever seen. She was lucky to have had Jason for as long as she did. Their baby is precious and it is primarily because of her father who if you look closely throughout all the reality programs is mostly taken care of and held by him. She is all about Bethenny. I hope Bethenny will really show her love for her daughter by allowing Bryn to have lots of time with her father. Of all the people in the world, Bethenny knows the importance of having a loving father in your life.

Lets be fair as the statement is nit a joint statement so Jason deserves the chance to defend himself. I agree that she is a great mom but I think her success went too far and thevprice paid will be greater. Id like to here his side too.

@Angel – Bryn will be 3 in May. Bethenny and Jason would have been married 3 years in March.

Bethenny’s pregancy and marriage to Jason was before she had millions in the bank. No longer a need for him, saved a little ‘face’ by staying married a 2-3 yrs.

I can’t stand bikinis on little girls. Its gross. Bethanny doesn’t look at all sad. SHe is one tough self centered nut. In a few years Jason will see how lucky he is to be rid of her.

Bryn is very fortunate to have such a loving father as Jason, and his two wonderful parents in her life to hopefully be able to save her from the train wreck of a mother that she has been dealt with.

Not working is not a sacrifice. Not spending time with your child is the sacrifice.

Wasn’t Bethenny about 7 or 8 months pregnant with Bryn when she got married? How can Bryn be only 2 and Bethenny and Jason be married for 3?

I think Bethenny is an excellent mother, she is always doing things with her daughter, he marriage might not have worked but that doesn’t make her a bad mother. Bryn is Bethenny’s love of her life.

It’s always been about Bethenny! She is the most selfish person I’ve ever seen! She’s never had any respect for Jason and she smothers that child, never let’s walk & hold her constantly. Poor Bryn will be screwed up just like her mom! Bethenny will never be happy!

I don’t agree. Jason has always been critical of Bethenny and seemingly trying to change who she is. Unfortunately, I often thought Jason was a negative person in their relationship.

I agree. When I watched the reality show Jason wouldn’t go to counseling because he thought he was the “normal” one. No way a troubled marriage can survive if one of the people won’t go to therapy.

Totally agree. All the therapy in the world can’t help her. Her mother said all along, that her daughter is all about herself, and the marriage will never last. Hmm….interesting.

Uhhhhm I don’t know maybe we should keep in mind that we are talking about a two year old baby girl who also happens to be a human being not just the child of a celebrity. Let’s have some respect for her as she can not speak for herself yet. That is not to say that I agree with Bethenny’s choices.

Perhaps Jason was tired of the cameras. I know I would be. That was mentioned on many shows. I would agree to go to therapy/counseling but not with cameras in the room. Forgetaboutit. Bethany is way to selfish for marriage. Bryn will suffer weather the parents believe that r not! Too bad.
