Bethenny Frankel on Divorce!

Bethenny Frankel may seem like she has it all together, but as she revealed during her April guest-hosting stint on Good Day New York, life after divorce is a daily struggle. It’s been a little more than three months since the Skinnygirl mogul announced the end of her two-year marriage to Jason Hoppy, and though the initial shock of their split has worn off, the heartache has not.

“It’s rough,” she confessed to morning anchor Greg Kelly. “I have to say, divorce is the most difficult thing you could ever go through in your entire life.”

Frankel, 42, wasn’t expecting it to be easy, of course, but she also wasn’t expecting it to be this hard. “I never heard how excruciating it is,” she admitted.

Asked whether her split from the 41-year-old pharmaceutical sales exec had been acrimonious, the Bethenny host replied that the experience of divorce in general was just a “brutal, unnatural situation” — one she “never thought” she’d find herself in. Her one saving grace? The couple’s 2-year-old daughter, Bryn, whom Frankel called “amazing.”

Frankel and Hoppy announced their separation at the end of December last year. She filed for divorce in early January; three weeks later, her ex counter-filed with aggressive papers of his own, in which he requested primary custody of Bryn, child support, medical and dental expenses, and exclusive use of the couple’s Tribeca loft in New York City.   “I’m going through something very difficult,” the Real Housewives alum told Extra’s AJ Calloway in February, adding that she felt both “good and terrible” about the split. “And you know what? Every dark cloud has a silver lining. I do have a beautiful daughter and I have a lot of things to be thankful and grateful for.”
