Bethenny Frankel’s marriage and divorce was anything but private and got extremely messy. The NYC Housewife is now saying she always knew in her gut her marriage would go up in flames!
Speaking to audience members at the NYU Alumni Association’s Speakers on the Square event, Bethenny got candid with the group and opened up about her marriage.
When one of the attendees asked her if she followed her gut when marrying Jason Hoppy, Bethenny responded,
I think my instinct and gut going into my marriage [knew] it would turn out the way it did. I could feel it, but I intellectualized it. People are always talking about ‘Do I go with my head or my heart?’ Go with your gut.
Looking back on that, I don’t really believe in regret, and it was situation where they were giving me a show – a spin-off – and I was in a relationship and it kind of just became, ‘This is what’s going on in your life, and this is compelling. It was hard for me to compartmentalize. But again, my gut did not like that we were doing a show together. My skin crawls thinking about it. I just did not feel right about it, and I kept saying, ‘I don’t want to be the Tori [Spelling] and Dean [McDermott] show. I don’t want to do this.’ And not because that’s a bad show but just because I just didn’t want to do that, and I didn’t go with my gut. It didn’t cause my divorce or anything, it’s just a whole new s—show that’s more of a s— show because of that.
I feel like when something fails for Bethenny it’s easier for her to say she knew it would happen, or it wasn’t for her (like her talk show) than admit she may have messed up. What do you think?
