Bethenny Frankel: “The Word’ Prenup’ Was Embarrassing To Me”
On Tuesday, December 14, Frankel appeared on her podcast “Just B” to explain how she did not want a prenuptial agreement in her marriage to Hoppy.
The former “Real Housewives of New York” star was embarrassed by the word ‘prenup’ and believed she married a regular person who was okay with her life on TV.
Frankel was proud to marry a man “who had a simple life, and… didn’t come from much,” thinking that meant he would want nothing material from her.
The 51-year-old said she was trusting and did not want to deal with a prenup, adding, “a contract when you get married? It’s an uncomfortable, awkward concept.”
In 2016, Frankel and Hoppy started a financial settlement finalized in January 2021. The ex-wife’s attorney noted that the former couple’s prenuptial agreement made her victorious in court.
Per PEOPLE, Attorney Allan Mayefsky revealed that the court waived $12,000 from Hoppy’s monthly spousal support request due to his waiver in their prenup.
Frankel was also granted full legal and primary residential custody of their 11-year-old daughter, Bryn, in 2020. She has been freed from paying direct child support fees as well.
