RHONY Reunion Recap: Bethenny Frankel Opens Up About Her 'Excruciating' Divorce

A lot of things happened on last night’s Real Housewives of New York City reunion and this was just part one of the three-part series! After hearing what all the ladies have been up to since the season finale, host Andy Cohen started asking the personal questions. It’s no surprise there’s still drama between all the ladies, but the realest part, in my opinion, was Bethenny Frankel opening up about her divorce from ex-husband Jason Hoppy.

First, Andy asked everyone if they were happy about Bethenny’s return to the show after a long absence. Everyone answered yes (of course) but Heather Thomson was quick to throw LuAnn de Lesseps under the bus, saying, “You were not excited about Bethenny coming back!” Heather went on to say how LuAnn hosted a luncheon without Bethenny and made a toast to bringing her down before the season started. LuAnn denied it, obviously.

Andy then asked Bethenny if she was divorced and she simply said no and that “there’s no way for people to know what’s going on.” Bethenny continued, “I’ve had a pretty colorful past that hasn’t been the easiest and I would say that this has been, by far, the most excruciating.” Ramona Singer then jumped in and asked if she would call it “emotional torture” and she said yes. Bethenny also said she was legally bound not to discuss any other details of their divorce.

Carole Radziwill came to Bethenny’s defense and stated that Jason Hoppy plays “head games” and won’t answer the phone when Bethenny tries to speak with their 4-year-old daughter.

So sad! Bethenny also told Andy their divorce is still not finalized after more than three years, which is longer than they were married.

Watch Bethenny discuss her painful divorce below.
