"My living situation is very, very stressful," Frankel, 41, tells PEOPLE in the new issue, on stands Friday. "I don't think it's very healthy for anyone involved. It's very upsetting. You just have to endure it."

Bethenny Frankel Surprised Divorce Is Not Amicable

Originally posted 04/30/2013 07:15PM

While Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy aren't scheduled to return to divorce court for a few more weeks, the reality-star-turned-talk-show-host has been giving a lot of thought to how far apart she and her ex have drifted.

At the time of the split, Frankel released a statement in which she said that she and Hoppy hoped to "amicably co-parent" their daughter Bryn, who turns 3 next month.

Now, in an exclusive interview with PEOPLE, Frankel says she can see that's going to be a challenge.

"I really did think it would be amicable. I absolutely did," she says. "I wrote that entire statement myself. And every single word, I believed to be true."

Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy Hash it Out (in the Halls) at Divorce Court

Originally posted 04/19/2013 04:00PM

Bethenny Frankel and her estranged husband Jason Hoppy met Friday for a matrimonial appearance before a judge in New York – but seemed to do most of their communicating outside the courtroom.

The pair arrived separately to the downtown Manhattan court early for a scheduled 10:30 a.m. appearance. Frankel, 42, wore black stilettos and a charcoal dress. Hoppy, 41, wore a gray suit and, notably, continued to wear the wedding band he's kept on throughout their separation.

News of their split broke in January. The couple wed in 2010 and have a 2½-year-old daughter, Bryn.

Accompanied by their legal teams (and in Jason's case, a pal as well), the pair sat in the halls outside the courtroom. While Bethenny sat with her lawyer on a sofa, Jason sat around the corner on a bench, out of his wife's sight but only feet away from her.

Jason appeared relaxed and smiling. He chatted with his legal team, and when his attorney stepped away, he sat with a pal and passed the time making conversation, frequently smiling.
