The creator of the Skinnygirl margaritas, Bethenny Frankel, has announced she is divorcing her husband of three years, Jason Hoppy, a pharmaceutical sales rep. Fans also watched the couple’s romance and marriage play out on Frankel’s reality television shows featured on Bravo, "Bethenny Getting Married?" "Bethenny Ever After" and "Bethenny."
According to a report in the Huffington Post, the two are still living together and will share custody of their two year-old daughter.
In a May 2012 interview with People magazine, Frankel discussed the struggles she faced in her marriage. "Money, family, gender roles, we just keep fighting over them," she told the magazine. "It's almost like a scab that you keep picking at."
Frankel met Hoppy at a nightclub in November 2008, and they two became engaged 11 months later.
Many are predicting that Frankel’s fortune will be a major issue in divorce proceedings. She hit Forbes Magazine Celebrity 100 list last year. And Business Insider reports she sold her Skinnygirl product line to Jim Beam in March 2011 for a reported $120 million. Later SEC filings proved the acquisition of just the brand name was $8 million. There are reports that Hoppy did sign a pre-nuptial agreement before the couple was married.
