Bethenny Frankel Says Marriage To Jason Hoppy Made Her Feel Like A “Bad Person!”


Former Real Housewives of New York Star Bethenny Frankel is going through a nasty divorce with her estranged husband, Jason Hoppy, and Bethenny says looking back on her marriage she felt like she was a “bad person.” Bethenny is opening up about her current living situation (she and Jason are still sharing their $5 million NYC apartment), and says she’s miserable.

“My living situation is very, very stressful,” she told People magazine. “I don’t think it’s very healthy for anyone involved. It’s very upsetting.”

“You just have to endure it,” Bethenny added, saying when she realized her marriage had failed it was one of the darkest times in her life. “All the things that I’ve tried to resolve in therapy and get past from my childhood reared their ugly head in my marriage. My marriage made me feel like I was a bad person, like I was damaged, I was dysfunctional, I was never going to be happy. But I don’t believe that to be true. Yet there I was in a relationship that made me feel that way.”

“Maybe that’s the first lesson learned: to go with my gut. Because I waited a long time to see if I even wanted to be in this relationship I didn’t go with my first instinct,” Bethenny said when she was explaining she should have paid more attention to her own feelings.

  1. Wow this is a sad woman. I just wish think she is such a control freak that she gets infuriated if one doesn’t agree with her. Bet she made Jason feel inferior – constantly. I use to think she owned her crap but she doesn’t, she is a perpetual victim and from what I saw, her childhood and marriage was not nearly as hard as many I see in real life. She is a spoiled little bitch and certainly wasn’t beaten, raped, etc..She needs to visit foster kids and women who have militant, controlling husbands – she, imo, will never have a lasting relationship with a man because she is permanantly self absorbed and too darn stubborn to emotionally give to another on a permant relationship. All she has is her snark which can be funny but also very cruel.

  2. What is this picture about? Is Bethenny the new poster girl for Anorexia and Tanning Beds? Holy crap, she looks like he’ll. Dr. Drew, calling Dr. Drew……hello Dr. Drew Bethenny Frankel NEEDS an intervention, now!

    Bethenny has been singing this same song since day one, “I am the way I am because of my mother, my father, my only child syndrome, my past boyfriends, Bravo TV, my husband, his family, getting married, being pregnant and on and on and on ………
    Her problem is she is always looking outside herself for someone to blame or should I say validate her. I don’t understand why she isn’t capable of looking within herself, HONESTY and facing her fears ! She might benefit from some deep psychoanalysis.
    Or maybe she just has to stop throwing her tantrums and grow up, accept responsibility already. What a mess! She needs a face to face with her mother with a moderator to start. I think Bethenny really believes life should be like a television show. Oh boy talk about distorted reality! Julie Plake was smart to get the hell out!

  3. Jason was the best thing to ever happen to you! It’s not necessary to trash him. Trash yourself. You are responsible for your own happiness.

  4. This is so sad to me because I liked Bethenny a lot. But feeling like a bad person had nothing to do with ho she was with, but what was going on inside. I wish her therapist was a little more assertive with her, as I think she would have been receptive. I think it’s clear that Bethenny seeks the angst that she was made comfortable with as a child, much like a woman that always finds herself with a wife beater and continues to go back to them. Except Bethenny stumbled onto a good guy, and she was so unfamiliar with that that she brought her own angst to the situation. When the problem as you see it is that you feel bad about yourself, it may just be that you are the problem that needs adjusting.

    1. Yes, I couldn’t agree more. But the worst part is the circus that she is creating, poor Bryn will have to be a part of it. My prayers go out to that poor child!!

  5. She is a train wreck. She needs to read Dr. Laura’s Bad Childhood, Good Life. Stop dwelling on your past and grow up. Your daughter deserves better. The fact that she says her home is an unhealthy place to live just shows how she puts herself before her daughter. Suck it up, act like you’re madly in love with your husband and you will create the loving, nurturing environment that Bryn deserves.

      1. I think her point was not to “act” like anything, but for her to put on her big girl pants and take some responsibility when relationships don’t work. She needs to fix herself, because she’s the common denominator in the misery of her life.

      2. Sorry, but you’re wrong. Divorce ruins kids. I have plenty of friends whose parents waited until they were up and out of the house to divorce and their kids were thankful that they grew up in a FAMILY, they never had to pack a suit case to “visit” their other parent, they were never stuck in the middle, they never had to compete with other step kids, the list goes on… It is called putting your children’s needs before your own.

  6. wow what a fantastic actress bethenny is and she acted like she was just madly in love over the moon and then she would sit in the therapist office and cry and make up these crazy stories of stuff that never even happened this girl is so delusional and unresponsive and she doesn’t take responsibility for everything that was involved in the marriage that went wrong on her side she is quick to blame Jason which is just terrible. people should speak to her first employee that girl couldn’t wait to get away from Bethany and she went back to Pittsburgh to work she didn’t want to have anything to do with her
