Bethenny Frankel Feels Like A Failure After Divorcing Jason Hoppy

Reality TV actress Bethenny Frankel has opened up to Ellen DeGeneres on her show today about filing for divorce from her husband Jason Hoppy. She revealed, “I can’t just only be on reality TV and show everything when it’s fairy princess, fairytale, and then not take my hits when I have to. Just going through something personal you have so many different emotions, and I feel like a bit of a disappointment to all of you. And, I feel like a failure.”

Ellen said in response, “You are not a disappointment. You are not a failure.”

Bethenny said, “I feel like a failure. I really put it out there. I wanted the fairytale. I thought I had it. And Bryn is my fairytale…Love is everywhere. It’s the road and you’re on it. It has peaks and valleys, and that’s what it is, but I don’t know how people go through this because this is excruciating.”

She talked of her decision to file for divorce saying that she “wanted to rip the Band-Aid off” so that she could “start to heal.”

She went on to say, “You know everything and one day you don’t know. So I’m scared. I’m older. And I want to be able to say to people…It’s about what I do now. I never thought I’d be a role model but i think to some people I am or have been. This is an important time because it’s about what I do next. How I handle myself now with grace, with dignity. Now is the time that matters.”
