Bethenny Frankel Divorce: How Much Is At Stake?

It’s sad news for anyone who's spent their days watching her argue on “Real Housewives of New York” and talk openly about lady parts on “Bethenny.” 

But following the announcement of her divorce filing, Bethenny Frankel—the reality television personality turned business mogul who insists on spelling her first name incorrectly—will apparently be protected by a ironclad prenup going into her legal split from husband, Jason Hoppy.

After being separated for about a month, the couple filed for divorce last week.“It brings me great sadness to say that Jason and I are separating,” she said in a statement at the time. “This was an extremely difficult decision that as a woman and a mother, I have to accept as the best choice for our family.”

While Jason, a real estate exec and pharmaceutical rep on the side, is most known for being Bethenny’s husband, she is reportedly worth somewhere between the realm of $25 and $55 million. This, of course, brings into question how much Jason will make from the split. 

According to a report from Us Weekly, though, it ain’t much…

Bethenny and Jason reportedly had a pretty solid prenuptial agreement in place, so divvying up the assets shouldn’t cause too many headaches. 

Those assets include Skinnygirl, Bethenny’s lifestyle company—including shapewear, snacks and cocktails—which in 2011 sold over $100 million, and their $5 million NYC apartment. 

According to TMZ, even with Bethenny’s bursting bank account, along with the New York pad, she is asking Jason to provide child support, medical expenses and life insurance for her and their daughter.

Meanwhile, Bethenny seems to be genuinely torn up about the heartache that the split is causing her family. And she’s apparently coping with the struggle by eating weird sandwiches.

On Sunday, she tweeted: “Does anything ease your sorrows like an egg sandwich?”
