Bethenny Frankel Claims Andy Cohen ‘Told Her’ to Marry Ex-Husband Jason Hoppy


Andy Cohen is apparently the puppet master of the Real Housewives as he pushed Bethenny Frankel to marry her ex-husband, Jason Hoppy.

The Real Housewives of New York alum blames Andy Cohen for her turbulent and failed marriage to ex-husband Jason Hoppy.

Accoridng to Bethenny, Andy “told her” to marry Jason, which she claims turned out to be the “worst idea in history.”

On the latest episode of her “Just B” podcast, Bethenny Frankel opened up about her short-lived marriage to the New York-based pharmaceutical rep that resulted in a bitter eight-year-long divorce.

“Andy told me to marry Jason, so there we go,” Bethenny told her guest and former RHONY costar Jill Zarin. “F–king worst idea in history.”

Bethenny and Jason tied the knot in March 2010 but split two years later in December 2012. Their wedding was filmed for Bethenny’s Bravo spinoff show, Bethenny Getting Married. The couple’s marriage was then documented on Bethenny’s second spinoff show, Bethenny Ever After, which aired for three seasons on Bravo.

After years of court proceedings, Bethenny and Jason finalized their divorce in January 2021. They had reached a financial settlement in their divorce back in 2016 but continued to fight over custody of their daughter, Bryn, now 13. In 2020, Bethenny was given full legal custody of Bryn, followed by primary residential custody in December 2021. This meant that Bethenny no longer had to pay Jason child support.

The same year her divorce from Jason was finalized, Bethenny opened up about their disastrous marriage.

“I ended up marrying someone who was just a regular person, who seemed like they could handle all of what’s going on with me, and being in reality television,” she explained on her Just B podcast in 2021. “And I was sort of proud of myself for just marrying someone who had a simple life, and they didn’t come from much, and so they would never want anything from me.”

Bethenny also revealed why she didn’t get a prenup before marrying Jason.

The Skinnygirl mogul admitted that she found the idea of getting a prenup “embarrassing” and “awkward.”

“I’m trusting, and I just don’t want to deal with this, and it was embarrassing. The word ‘prenup’ was embarrassing to me. It’s uncomfortable, it’s awkward. A contract when you get married? It’s an uncomfortable, awkward concept,” she explained at the time.

Season 14 of the Real Housewives of New York airs on Sundays at 9 pm on Bravo.
