“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.”
The couple’s relationship has been on the rocks nearly this entire year; there have been numerous reports of temporary splits and cheating rumors. In January, Frankel told Life & Style that their sex life had all but dried up. All of this, naturally, played out during the third and final season of her reality show, Bethenny Ever After. It’s hard enough having marital problems, but having them with cameras in your face surely only makes them worse.
Bethenny and Jason married in March 2010, when she was seven months pregnant; their daughter Bryn was born in May. She’s been insanely busy ever since, launching an exercise DVD, an audio book and two regular books; selling her Skinnygirl cocktail line in exchange for a small fortune; and developing a talk show. Jason, in comparison, has a fairly quiet career in pharmaceutical sales and real estate. This will be Bethenny’s second divorce; her 1996 marriage to Peter Sussman lasted less than a year.
