Bethenny and Ramona Talk Relationships and Moving On
The women let their guard down (sort of) on 'WWHL.'
Of all the Real Housewives of New York City cast members past and present, few have been more outgoing or opinionated than Ramona Singer and Bethenny Frankel. Though the two friends continue to have a blast whenever they're around each other, cameras rolling or not, some things are too difficult to discuss. And Bethenny and Ramona are keeping relatively tight-lipped about the turmoil they're seeing in their love lives.
On Watch What Happens Live last night, Bethenny and Ramona addressed what's going on in their respective relationships. Ramona's in the midst of battling the rumor mill regarding her 25-year marriage to her husband Mario and whether or not it's on the rocks. She's spoken out against talk of divorce before, and recently spent time with Mario and their daughter Avery while she was home for spring break. Still, something's up, and Ramona wasn't ready to dive into details. "I'm taking everything day-by-day," she told Andy Cohen, before changing the subject.
Meanwhile, Bethenny's still dealing with divorce drama: though she's been dating and trying to move on, her 2012 split with Jason Hoppy is still very much so a difficult, ongoing process as the two continue with their divorce proceedings.
"Honestly, it's been a year—15 months—of this," Bethenny said, answering Andy when he inquired about a divorce update. "I don't want to talk about it, just 'cause that's for Bryn. I really don't. I can't talk about it...I am dating. And I'm happy. I'm good. I finally feel a little bit of liberation, a little bit of freedom, just a little bit of just not feeling so bad. It's been a really, really hard time. Let's put it that way."
On top of everything else, Bethenny and Jason still technically share their TriBeCa condo, but Bethenny doesn't divulge any details as to whether or not that's still their arrangement.
"It's been a really surreal, insane, crazy situation. Let's just put it that way. I don't want to talk about it because of Bryn, but I'm happy, but I have not totally come out on the other side."
