Bethenny Frankel, former star of “The Real Housewives of New York” and founder of Skinnygirl Cocktails, is in the middle of a divorce from her husband of nearly three years, Jason Hoppy. The latest news is that the presiding judge had them meet at the courthouse Friday (April 19) for a matrimonial appearance.
According to People, the pair was accompanied by their respective legal teams and spent quite a while outside the courtroom conferring and making phone calls. Jason and Bethenny never spoke directly to one another, but their lawyers were seen talking.
When they finally went in to meet with the judge, they emerged not long after and People says Frankel appeared as if she’d been crying. They then headed to a conference room, sans lawyers, where they talked for around 40 minutes.
The couple announced their split in January. They married in 2010 and have a 2-year-old daughter named Bryn.
