Bye, bye, Mr. Hoppy! As of June 29, 2016, Bethenny Frankel's ex Jason Hoppy has moved out of the $5 million New York apartment they once shared together, after a long legal battle surrounding their divorce.
Bethenny, who has 4-year-old daughter Bryn Hoppy with Jason, purchased the home back in 2011, a year after they tied the knot and soon after her Skinny Girl Cocktails brand became a huge financial success.
The couple quickly became estranged, and have been wrapped up in a dramatic divorce proceeding ever since -- fighting over assets like the TriBeca pad and custody of their daughter.
All the while, Jason has continued to live in the mega apartment, while Bethenny hotel-hopped until she finally bought a new condo in SoHo for a cool $4.2 million.
Jason argued that he rights to the place since he was named as a beneficiary in the trust when Bethenny made the purchase. But finally, in March, a judge ruled that the entire trust was invalid, prompting him to evacuate.
"The Real Housewives of New York City" star spoke about returning to her now-empty apartment for the first time on her Sirius XM radio show "B Real with Bethenny" on Wednesday.
"I walked in and it just washed over me. I sobbed for hours. It was like this release," the 45-year-old revealed. "And you always think things are going to be one way. I thought it was going to be like the biggest party ever, I'd be roller-skating through there with my top off, my t**s hanging out, so excited, and there's nothing good about any of it. It was all just remembering moving in there. It was a hideous experience, and I just didn't know how to even process the feeling."
Now, Bethenny is free to sell her old digs, which were newly valued at $7 million, according to E! Online.
She's also moved on in other aspects of her life, having been dating Dennis Shields.
"We've both been married and separated," she recently told People mag. "So we're a perfect match. Like everything else in my life, I'm owning it."
Let's just hope that her super-duper long divorce officially comes to an end soon.
