Bethenny Frankel: 'I Haven't Seen a Divorce Lawyer' (VIDEO)
Despite reports that she and her husband have sought the advice of a divorce lawyer, talk show host and entrepreneur Bethenny Frankel has insisted she is in a "good marriage."
On Monday's premiere episode of Frankel's new talk show bethenny, the 41-year-old mother-of-one is asked about the state of her marriage to Jason Hoppy.
"Oh, I forgot. Yes, I've seen a divorce lawyer. My husband's seen a divorce lawyer," Frankel said sarcastically, in a preview clip.
"No, I haven't. It's Hollywood… I haven't seen a divorce lawyer. My husband hasn't seen a divorce lawyer."
As was evidenced on her Bravo show though, Frankel and Hoppy have had their struggles:
"I put it all out there on my show," the former Real Housewife of New York added.
"If it's out there I'll tell you. I'm in a good marriage. We have issues and we're not perfect, but, we work on it every day. We're committed." To read a transcript of the exchange, scroll down.
The couple married in March 2010, with their wedding airing on Bravo in a special called Bethenny Getting Married.
Two months later, the pair welcomed their first child together, Bryn, now two.
Now, the family is featured on the hit Bravo series titled Bethenny Ever After, which chronicles the star's life as she tries to balance marriage, fame and parenthood.
Franke was asked about the divorce rumors during a segment titled "Men's Panel" with Kevin Nealon, D.L. Hughley and Mike Catherwood.
Here’s a full transcript:
Mike: The real question is… I hate to be the guy who deals with the elephant in the room. How are you doing? I’m hearing the “D” word, divorce thrown around a lot.
Bethenny (sarcastically): Oh, I forgot. Yes, I’ve seen a divorce lawyer. My husband’s seen a divorce lawyer.
Kevin: I’m sorry to hear that.
Bethenny: No, I haven’t. It’s Hollywood… You know, I haven’t seen a divorce lawyer. My husband hasn’t seen a divorce lawyer.
Kevin: Oh, I’m happy to hear that.
Bethenny: Thank you. Those of you who don’t know … basically the press has said that Jason has seen a divorce lawyer and I saw a divorce lawyer. There is this whole big thing going on and the truth is, I put it all out there on my show. If it’s out there, I’ll tell you. I’m in a good marriage. We have issues. We are not perfect. We work on it every day. We’re committed.
