Hoping to make lemonade out of lemons, SkinnyGirl mogul Bethenny Frankel is writing a new book about her life as a single mom, as she begins divorce proceedings against Jason Hoppy, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
“Bethenny has been writing and documenting her feelings in the beginning stages of the divorce,” a source close to the situation tells us. “The book will explore the struggles and compromises all single mom face. It will deal with the delicate balancing act that is being a single mom, and the guilt she feels because her daughter Bryn will now come from a broken home, something she never wanted for her little girl.”
The former reality TV star and the pharmaceutical sales executive have both filed for primary custody of their 2-year-old daughter, and it seems neither is willing to back down on the matter without an epic fight.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, despite the now-warring spouses drawing up an ironclad prenup before heading down the aisle in March of 2010, Jason plans to fight hard for a chunk of the mega millions Bethenny accumulated during their time together – something he adamantly believes he is entitled to.
“Jason is absolutely going to fight against the prenup terms because he has nothing to lose at this point,” the source says. “He feels that when he met Bethenny she was just in the beginning stages of launching her SkinnyGirl cocktail line, and he gave her a lot of free marketing advice and help. She relied on him A LOT during that time, and he believes that’s what helped her build a brand that was ultimately sold for $100 million,” a source previously revealed.
However, just because the divorce has turned nasty, “don’t expect Bethenny to go negative against Jason in the book. She knows that will turn off readers; she will absolutely address the emotional toll the divorce has taken on her, but she won’t openly bash Jason,” the insider says.
Frankel is a New York Times bestselling author of five books, including one memoir, A Place Of Yes, a novel, Skinnydipping, and three books about cooking and dieting.
