Bethenny Frankel Headed for Divorce?

Truth rating: 0

By Michael Lewittes


Bethenny Frankel has only been married for 18 months, but she’s already headed for a divorce, reports Star magazine.

The mag sat down with the “Bethenny Ever After” star’s estranged mother, Bernadette Birk, who says it’s “only a matter of time” before Frankel and husband Jason Hoppy split.

Birk tells Star, “Right now, he’s a good father, but soon she won’t need him and she will dump him,” noting, “he is really too weak for her.”

Although Birk admits she’s only spoken to the Skinnygirl entrepreneur twice in the past ten years, she claims to know a great deal about Frankel’s day-to-day life, saying, “I find it amazing that she discusses having another child with her husband, but she barely has time for the first one.”

But a rep for the reality star tells Gossip Cop Birk’s claims are completely unfounded and totally false.

Leave it to Star to base a story on the speculative ramblings of an estranged relative.
