Former "Real Housewives of New York City" star and Skinnygirl mogul Bethenny Frankel may be separating from husband Jason Hoppy, but the two are still living together despite their split.
Frankel is reportedly devastated that her marriage to Hoppy, whom she wed in 2010, has failed, a source told People magazine. Although they tried to make it work, they constantly argued about things like money, family and gender roles.
"It just got too hard to be husband and wife," the source told People. "With Bethenny, it was her way or the highway. If you are a person who surrounds yourself with people telling you, 'You are right; we will bend over backwards to make things happen for you,' you will have a tough time in marriage. Marriage doesn't work that way."
Despite the split, Frankel and Hoppy are still living together and will share custody of their 2-year-old daughter, Bryn, according to Us Weekly.
"There are not plans yet for [Jason] to move out of their NYC loft," a source told Us.
Rumors surfaced prior to the 42-year-old announcing the separation on Dec. 23 that the love was gone.
“It’s pretty much over between Bethenny and Jason,” a source told RadarOnline. “They are already living separate lives.” The source added, “She doesn’t seem to be too upset about the demise of their marriage. She is really focused on her career and her product line right now, so it sort of consumes her, which is probably why the marriage starting falling apart in the first place."
Frankel, whose namesake talk show will launch in syndication sometime in 2013, is trying to cope.
I am heartbroken. I am sad. We will work through this as a family.
