It’s no secret reality star Bethenny Frankel and her husband Jason Hoppy have had their fair share of marital problems, but it looks like things could get real ugly in a hurry.
Bethenny and Jason have both met with divorce lawyers, according to this week’s edition of Star, and one source tells the magazine, “They are going to get a divorce … it’s imminent.”
This week’s Star also drops the bombshell that things between Bethenny and her Skinnygirl business partner Matt Hesse might have gotten less professional — and more personal — in their dealings.
Bethenny and Matt said plenty with their body language as far back as three months ago, an eyewitness tells Star, when the two grabbed a meal at Philippe Chow’s Philippe restaurant in New York City.
“They walked through the restaurant with his chest pressed up against her back, and she leaned back and he whispered in her ear,” according to the eyewitness. “Then, they went up the stairs to a private dining area together, literally with their arms wrapped around each other.”
Jason is just biding his time to expose the former Real Housewives of New York City star for her two-timing ways, the insider said.
“Jason has said that when he is ready to officially file for divorce, he is ready to call Bethenny out on her infidelity and name Matt in the papers,” said the insider, adding Matt has said there’s nothing going on between he and Bethenny.
Jason’s and Bethenny’s well-documented inability to get along and the newfound whispers of cheating could set up a $100 million divorce battle, as Bethenny has cleaned up in her entrepreneurial endeavors with her Skinnygirl line of products — and Jason wants his piece of the pie!
Jason “feels absolutely entitled to half of her fortune,” the source said.”He feels betrayed and doesn’t care about Bethenny’s financial fallout once he gets what he wants.
“It’s all karma.”
Bethenny’s mother Bernadette Burke told Star she “called [their break-up] before their wedding day.
“This was dead in the water even before it began. His problem is he’s too nice, and she’ll grab another nice one. He is replaceable. Nice is boring, and Bethenny gets bored with nice,” Bernadette said, adding Bethenny “doesn’t have any respect for marriage” and a history of cheating.
Bethenny and Jason, who married in March 2010, have a 2-year-old daughter named Bryn.
