Hamptons former real housewife Bethenny Frankel will be a wife no longer.
The reality-TV star, “Skinny Girl” entrepreneur and talk show host announced to the Associated Press on Sunday that she and husband Jason Hoppy separated right before Christmas.
Frankel entered the public eye when she appeared on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New York City, and her star quickly began to rise. She and Hoppy starred together on spinoff Bethenny Getting Married?, followed by Bethenny Ever After, which chronicled the couple’s lives after their nuptials.
The couple met in 2008 and wed in 2010. They have a 2-year-old daughter, Bryn. “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 in her statement to the AP on Sunday.
Frankel is hosting daytime talk show Bethenny, which premieres on Fox in 2013.
