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?
