Sunnier days are ahead. After a chilly meeting with estranged husband Jason Hoppy in a New York City courthouse, Bethenny Frankel was in need of some serious downtime. So when the face-off ended, the Skinnygirl mogul packed a suitcase and took daughter Bryn, 2, down to Miami, Fla., for a little weekend getaway.
Lounging by the pool with her little girl on Sunday, April 21, the 42-year-old talk show host showed off her slim, toned bikini body in a bright purple halter-style top and matching side-tie bottoms. She kept the sun out of her eyes with a wide-brimmed floppy straw hat and aviator sunglasses.
As Us Weekly previously reported, Frankel and her pharmaceutical sales executive ex, 41, reunited in court on Friday, April 19, to discuss financial disclosure with their attorneys. According to E! News, the couple didn't even acknowledge each other during the meeting.
The Bravo star announced the end of her two-year marriage in December 2012, then filed for divorce in January. Three weeks later, Hoppy counter-filed with aggressive papers requesting primary custody of Bryn, child support, medical and dental expenses, and exclusive use of their Manhattan loft.
"I have to say, divorce is the most difficult thing you could ever go through in your entire life," she told Good Day New York recently of the split. "I never heard how excruciating it is."
