After being married for two years, Bethenny Frankel and husband Jason Hoppy 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," the 42-year-old Bravo reality star said. "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. This is an immensely painful and heartbreaking time for us."
Some sources reported that the two were experiencing strains in their relationship, partly due to their career aspirations.
Frankel and Hoppy met in 2008 and tied the knot two years later, having their 2-year-old daughter Bryn that same year.
