Bethenny Frankel Just Revealed She’s Still Married 8 Years After Her Breakup With Jason Hoppy

Bethenny Frankel may no longer be on the Real Housewives of New York, but that hasn’t stopped her from coming by to chat with her former boss and friend, Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live.

The businesswoman and Cohen chatted about quarantine and about Frankel’s ex-boyfriend, Dennis Shields who sadly passed away in 2018. However, one thing that Cohen and fans did not expect was for Frankel to bring up her relationship with her ex-husband, Jason Hoppy.

In fact, Cohen was equally as stunned when Frankel revealed that the pair are still married eight years after the former RHONY castmember filed for divorce.

Bethenny Frankel’s marriage to Jason Hoppy was very tumultuous

When Frankel tied the knot with Hoppy, a pharmaceutical sales executive back in March 2010, all seemed well. Their wedding was even televised on the short-lived, Bethenny Ever After

However, following the birth of their daughter Bryn, things exploded between the two. In December 2012, the pair separated with the SkinnyGirl creator officially filing for divorce in Jan. 2013.

The couple’s divorce proceedings have not been smooth. Last year during the couple’s ongoing custody case, Frankel revealed to calling Hoppy’s family “white trash.” She also admitted to pouring water on Hoppy as he slept because she “cracked.”

Bethenny Frankel revealed she and Jason Hoppy are still legally married

Since there is clearly no love lost between the pair, it’s shocking that they are still legally bound. During WWHL, Cohen cheekily asked Frankel if she and her current beau, Paul Bernon, would be walking down the aisle anytime soon. Frankel retorted saying, “Ummm, I’m still married!” 

Cohen, like many of us was too overcome for an indepth respnse. He simply said, “You’re killing me!” and moved on to the next subject. This is not the first time Frnkel has hinted at still being married to Hoppy.

In Aug. 2019 amid the season premiere of RHONY, Frankel tweeted, “To my NY hwives: GO GET EM! I had to go since I’m the only one that is actually married…that’s how crazy this ride is. You are all amazing, beautiful and strong. Spread your wings and fly! Xoxo”

This is why Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoopy are not divorced yet

Though a custody agreement was initially finalized in 2014 and a financial settlement was completed in 2016. However, the couple has been back in the courts battling it out over custody of their daughter. At present, they share joint custody, but Frankel wants primary custody.

“I have tried everything to collaborate and work in the best interest of my daughter,” Page Six reported Frankel saying in 2019. “What is best for Bryn is to have a rational person who is making good decisions. Decision making has been impossible and tedious and not cooperative or reasonable process. Jason makes decisions based on what will hurt me or how he will feel he has won.”

It looks like this divorce will drag on for many more years to come until some sort of agreement can be met. “This issue has been addressed in open court on the record,” an insider told Page Six. “It’s true that no judgment has been issued. It is not true that one side has objected.”
