"It brings me great sadness to say that Jason and I are separating," the reality star said in a statement. "This was an extremely difficult decision that as a woman and a mother, I have to accept as the best choice for our family.

"We have love and respect for one another and will continue to amicably co-parent our daughter who is and will always remain our first priority. This is an immensely painful and heartbreaking time for us."

Rumors that Frankel and Hoppy were unhappy together have been circulating for months.

But Bethenny has gone to great lengths to shoot this chatter down, dismissing it entirely on the first episode of her talk show.

The couple were married in March 2010 and have a two-year old daughter together named Bryn.

In a Tweet that followed her official statement, Frankel said she was "heartbroken" over the development.
