I Hope Bethenny Frankel Drowns Her Divorce Sorrows In A FatGirl Martini

39th Daytime Emmy Awards

Well that escalated quickly.  Less than two weeks after announcing a separation from her husband, Jason Hoppy, Bethenny Frankel has officialy filed for divorce.  While I have never actually watched an entire episode of The Real Housewives (I know, I know, I should be fired), I know that Bethenny Frankel must be one of the rare, popular characters from the franchise because every single female on my Facebook newsfeed is devastated by this news.

From what I’ve gathered while reading what “close sources” have to say, Bethenny let her career take over her life, thus making her neglectful to her marriage.  Because as everyone knows, women simply cannot “have it all.”  Which reminds me…I need to starch my apron today.

Breaking with the celebrity norm of either staying completely silent or making a total ass out of herself by blasting her personal biz all over the place, Bethenny actually tweeted a simple, appropriate statement last night:

To those of you who are being supportive: thank you. To those of you who are judging: I totally get it.

Anyhoo, I understand that the SkinnyGirl conglomerate is incredibly successful because every female wants to be able to drink her face off without having to unbutton her pants to be comfortable.  (Oh, is that just me?)  But I hope that if nothing else would drive Bethenny to indulge in the fattier, finer things in life, her pending divorce would.  Go for it, honey.  You just go ahead and smother those feelings in some cupcakes and full-bodied, calorie-filled boxed wine.  I won’t tell.

      I loved watching Bethenny ever after but watching that show you could see they were headed for divorce! Jason was so jealous of bethennys career and would constantly make her feel bad for it. She was in counselling and at the end of the day I think though she has her issues none make it understandable for the way Jason treated her they were just a bad couple but I wish her complete happiness in her future and hope she finds someone that loves her even though (or because of!) her career success.
