What?! Bethenny Frankel Reveals She's Still Legally Married To Jason Hoppy

Bethenny Frankel is STILL waiting on a divorce!

The Real Housewives of New York City alum appeared on Watch What Happens Live on Thursday, September 24, and confirmed that she is still legally married to ex Jason Hoppy.

"Are you and Paul talking marriage?" Andy Cohen asked the 46-year-old, referring to her boyfriend, Paul Bernon.

"I’m still married," the reality star confessed. "Crickets again! And scene. And we’re back. And we’re walking."

The 52-year-old was shocked by her response. "You’re killing me," he said.


The SkinnyGirl mogul and Hoppy, 50 — who wed in 2010 — called it quits in December 2012 after nearly three years of marriage. With Frankel's jaw-dropping revelation, the couple's divorce has officially lasted twice as long as their time as husband and wife.

The two have also been entangled in a lengthy and nasty custody battle over their daughter Bryn, 10, over the years.

Frankel has been together with Bernon, a Boston-based film producer, since September 2018.

However, the BStrong charity founder's drama with Hoppy will not play out on RHONY. In August 2019, she announced she was exiting the Bravo franchise ahead of the show's season 12 premiere.

"I have decided to leave the Housewives franchise to explore my next chapter," she confirmed in a statement to Variety. "It’s time to move on and focus on my daughter, my philanthropy and my production partnership with Mark Burnett, producing and starring in shows which represent a shift in the conversation for women. With the changes in modern culture, I want to highlight the strength, confidence and unstoppable power that women have."

The New York native joined the hit Bravo show in 2008. She left in 2010 during the show's third season and returned in 2015.


Frankel is now focused on her new HBO Max reality competition series, The Big Shot with Bethenny, which will give contestants a chance to score a job on her SkinnyGirl executive team.

Competitors will be put through a series of challenges to see who can handle the pressures of working in a high stress environment for the successful brand. Frankel and her B Real Productions company teamed up on the show with MGM Television and Burnett.

The former talk show host expressed her excitement over her new project in a statement to Variety. "Aside from motherhood, what truly defines me as a person is being a driven, passionate and hard-working woman determined to make the impossible possible," she said. "My mantra is to come from a place of 'yes' and to find and create the solution. I am an executor of visions, and I share and impart that information to those who work with me. MGM has been neck-in-neck with me with ideas and their execution. I couldn’t be more thrilled to continue my longstanding relationship with Mark Burnett on this series and pay this American Dream story forward."
