BETHENNY Frankel and Jason Hoppy are still living together — despite announcing their plans to divorce.
The pair — who raise daughter Bryn, 2, together — are holed up in a NYC loft, and intend to stay their for the foreseeable future.
“There are not plans yet for [Jason] to move out of their NYC loft,” a source told Us Weekly.
Frankel’s nationally syndicated, eponymous talk show will tape in the Big Apple this fall.
“She fought to have it shoot in New York to make sharing custody easier,” the source explains.
Frankel is “devastated” by the breakup but remains optimistic about her future. “She is just taking it one day at a time.”
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.”
