Bethenny Frankel has decided to separate from hubby Jason Hoppy after two years of marriage.
In a statement to Life & Style, the Bethenny Ever After star confirms the news:
"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. 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."
After marrying in 2010, the pair welcomed a daughter, named Bryn, that same year.
The reality star and talk show host, 42, has always been very honest regarding her marriage.
"[Jason and I] have had strains. We've had major fights," the New York Times bestselling author has admitted . "When I signed on to do [my] show, I committed to myself and my fans to be totally honest. You cannot show people only the petals and not the thorns. It's not fair to them."
We wish them nothing but the best through this hard and difficult time.
