Bethenny Frankel Claims She & Daughter Bryn Are 'Starting Strong' In 2022 Following Major Win In Custody Battle With Ex Jason Hoppy
Bethenny Frankel is going into the new year with a new perspective.
The former The Real Housewives of New York City star recently revealed her intentions for 2022, which include being the best mama for her daughter Bryn.
On Tuesday, January 4, Frankel posted a sweet snap of her 11-year-old laying on her lap during a beach trip, writing that the mother-daughter duo are "starting strong in 2022."
"Being a mother has infinitely changed my perspective," she also wrote in the caption of her 'gram. "I don't believe in new year's resolutions but I do believe in daily and weekly resolutions: to be a better person, parent, philanthropist and partner."
The former Bravo personality has been engaged to film producer Paul Bernon since February 2021. She was previously married to Jason Hoppy, with whom she shares her preteen daughter.
"I strive for peace and balance in all areas of my life," she continued. "We certainly won't achieve perfection but the journey outweighs the destination. We are constantly growing and evolving on our own with those around us."
The reflective post featuring her daughter — who she affectionately calls "Peanut" — comes just a month after Frankel scored a major legal victory in her custody battle with Hoppy.

As OK! previously reported, a judge decided back in December that Frankel would no longer be required to make child support payments to her ex husband.
The former spouses currently have a split custody agreement, although Bryn has chosen to live primarily with her mother, making the child support payments unnecessary.
"We need to recognize that Ms. Frankel is the primary parent… she should not be paying child support at this point," Frankel's lawyer argued in court at the time. Her legal team also requested that their previously established custody schedule be modified to better fit their daughter's needs.
"Whatever you put on paper, that's great for structure, but she is a living breathing thing and she won't always go," Frankel stated at the time.
Consequently, Hoppy responded to the argument by insisting that he was not going to fight the request.
"This is not a Bryn issue or an issue that Bryn has with me,” he told the judge in the December hearing. "Therefore I’m removing myself of this fight for Bryn and my physical, emotional and mental health. I will not spend the remainder of Bryn’s childhood fighting as we share joint physical custody."
