Bethenny Frankel's ongoing divorce from ex Jason Hoppy has dragged on for two-and-a-half years, so it doesn't come as much of a surprise that the 44-year-old wishes they'd never gotten married in the first place!
"I think my instinct and gut going into my marriage [knew] it would turn out the way it did," the reality star confessed during an NYU Alumni Association event. "I could feel it, but I intellectualized it. People are always talking about 'Do I go with my head or my heart?' Go with your gut."

The duo, who got married in 2010, share one child together — a five-year-old daughter named Bryn — who they've fought for custody over. Part of their relationship, including their wedding, was filmed for the reality series, Bethenny Ever After.
"Looking back on [the show] ... it was [a] situation where they were giving me a show – a spin-off – and I was in a relationship and it kind of just became, 'This is what's going on in your life, and this is compelling,'" she told the audience.

And while she has no regrets about doing the series, she acknowledges that "my gut did not like that we were doing a show together. My skin crawls thinking about it."
She even used Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott, who've had three reality shows together, as an example! "I kept saying, 'I don't want to be the Tori and Dean show. I don't want to do this.' And not because that's a bad show but just because I just didn't want to do that."

And while she doesn't place blame on reality TV for the demise of her marriage, she does warn fans against listening to too many friends' opinions.
"Later on, your mom likes them, your friends are all getting married, your head gets involved, you love having sex with a person, that's your heart [or something else] getting involved," she shared, adding, "It's all Andy Cohen's fault, he will admit it" — referencing the Bravo host's favorable feelings towards Jason.

So we can assume this means that the Skinnygirl founder isn't going to walk down the aisle anytime soon, right?
