TV personality and entrepreneur Bethenny Frankel and husband of two years, Jason Hoppy, have decided to separate.
Frankel told The Associated Press Sunday the split brings her "great sadness." She continued, "This was an extremely difficult decision that as a woman and a mother, I have to accept as the best choice for our family. 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. This is an immensely painful and heartbreaking time for us."
In a tweet, the original "Skinnygirl" spoke to her fans about the breakup. "I am heartbroken. I am sad. We will work through this as a family."
Frankel and Hoppy were married in 2010 and have a daughter, Bryn, who was born that same year.
Since Frankel's stint on "The Real Housewives of New York City," she's written four books, released a fitness video, founded her Skinnygirl line, and is launching a talk show, "Bethenny," set to air nationally in 2013 on FOX.
