It’s not a happy holiday season in the Frankel/Hoppy household. Sources close to the couple have exclusively confirmed to us that television darling Bethenny Frankel and her hubby Jason Hoppy will be announcing their divorce in the next few days.
The couple have rumored to be ‘on the rocks’ for quite some time, with most recent stories claiming the two had been meeting with lawyers. Earlier today, RadarOnline reported Bethenny had chosen her career over Jason:
“Jason has made it crystal clear to Bethenny that he is not in favor of her continuing her talk show, which will be filming in Los Angeles,” a source close to the situation tells Radar. ”Jason hates L.A. and doesn’t want to move to California, even for the sake of his wife’s career.
“Bethenny is contractually obligated to film in Los Angeles however, and she would never even contemplate breaching the deal. Jason has warned Bethenny that he won’t be moving to L.A. with her when filming begins in 2013. Bethenny suspects though that Jason’s beef isn’t with living in Los Angeles, but rather how unhappy he is in the marriage. Things are so bad between the two of them right now they are hardly even talking to each other.”
Our source says an announcement will probably be made as soon as this Sunday, just two days before Christmas, in an effort to keep the media attention on the pair at a low level.
Bethenny and Jason met in 2009 while she was filming season three of The Real Housewives of New York. The two then starred in their own spinoff show, Bethenny Ever After.
The couple have a daughter, Bryn Hoppy, who was born in 2010.
