Bethenny Frankel Divorce: Star Is Grateful For Friends' Support

Bethenny Frankel will soon be a real ex-housewife of New York after filing for divorce from her husband of nearly three years, Jason Hoppy. However, Bethenny is telling a friend she will be just fine and has already focused back on her first love: her career.

"Bethenny said she would be OK and was grateful that friends were reaching out to her during this difficult time," a friend of the reality star tells The Huffington Post. "She knows that a lot of haters are going to be talking about her, but [she] had to do what was right for her. She couldn't lie to herself anymore.”

"To those of you who are being supportive: thank you," Bethenny tweeted Saturday after the news about the divorce broke. "To those of you who are judging: I totally get it."

Now she is immersing herself in her career and her upcoming talk show, not in finding another man.

"Bethenny's first love has always been her career until her daughter, Bryn, was born," one longtime friend reveals. "She is not interested in meeting anyone. All she is focusing on is Bryn and her career. She is currently meeting with potential new staff for her talk show, which will be taped in New York. Honestly, we don't have to worry about her at all."
