Posted by Adam
BETHENNY Frankel has a lot of front!
According to a new report from New York Post gossip column Page Six, the reality star boldly asked Katie Holmes for the details of her divorce lawyer at Bravo boss Andy Cohen’s holiday bash in his Manhattan apartment just before Christmas.
Katie, of course, recently divorced husband Tom Cruise while Frankel recently announced her split from Jason Hoppy.
“Bethenny seemed a bit drunk and made a beeline for Katie Holmes and abruptly asked her, ‘I need a good divorce lawyer, can I have yours?’” a source said.
“Katie looked very taken aback, but was polite. She smiled and told Bethenny the name of her lawyer.”
Meanwhile, it’s been claimed Bethenny’s marriage fell apart because Jason was jealous of her rising fame and fortune.
“Jason felt emasculated,” a source said.
“He’s not particularly ambitious, and Bethenny is very driven.”
Bethenny struggled with ending her marriage, especially because they have a daughter together, Bryn Hoppy, but decided to come clean once and for all.
“However, once Bethenny had made her mind up that they were going to officially split she felt she had to make the announcement immediately. Jason wanted to wait till after the holidays were over but Bethenny insisted that she could not carry on the charade of pretending to be a happy couple any longer, especially not in front of their closest friends and family,” a source close to her said.
“Basically, in the end Bethenny decided, no more secrets and lies — let’s get it out in the open, for better or for worse.
“She’s very smart. She will spin this into gold. Her talk show will now be of interest to single moms and single women.”
