Earlier this week, Skinnygirl founder and Bravo reality star Bethenny Frankel tweeted to more than 1.1 million of her followers that she was "heartbroken" over her recent separation from husband of two-and-a-half years, Jason Hoppy.

Now, with the possibility of divorce looming, people have begun to speculate how the split will affect the estranged couple's 2½-year-old daughter, Bryn.

In a statement announcing the separation on December 23, Frankel said, "We have love and respect for one another and will continue to amicably co-parent our daughter who is and will always remain our first priority."

And an unnamed source close to the couple told In Touch magazine that "there will be no fighting" over custody of their daughter.

“This won’t be a drawn-out, nasty battle," the source said.

Although news of the Frankel-Hoppy separation saddened many, few were surprised by their breakup.

In a May 2012 interview with People magazine, the former New York City "Housewife" spoke candidly about the struggles she faced in her marriage.

"Money, family, gender roles, we just keep fighting over them," she told the magazine. "It's almost like a scab that you keep picking at."

If Frankel does end up filing for divorce from Hoppy, she would hardly be the first "Real Housewife" to do so. Click through the slides below for 35 other so-called "Bravolebrities" who called it quits with their husbands.
