Reality TV star Bethenny Frankel and husband to separate
NEW YORK (Reuters) - Reality TV star Bethenny Frankel and her husband Jason Hoppy are separating, Frankel announced on Sunday.
"It brings me great sadness to say that Jason and I 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," Frankel said in a statement confirmed by her representative.
"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."
Frankel, 42, and Hoppy married in March of 2010. They have a daughter, Bryn, who was born in May of 2010.
On Sunday, Frankel tweeted, "I am heartbroken. I am sad. We will work through this as a family."
Frankel first attracted attention in 2008 on the reality show "The Real Housewives of New York City," which chronicles the exploits of wealthy New York women. She went on to star in two other reality TV shows, "Bethenny Getting Married?" and "Bethenny Ever After...," both of which centered on the couple's marriage and child-rearing.
Frankel also founded the Skinnygirl line of cocktails, and has written several diet and self-help books. In 2012 she launched a talk show, "Bethenny," which is set to air nationally in 2013. (Reporting By Andrea Burzynski; Editing by Stacey Joyce)
