“The power struggle between men and women exists,” the Real Housewives of New York City star told Cohen on the Bravo talk show. “And it is hard when the woman is the breadwinner.

Following the interview, Hoppy’s lawyer, Bernard Clair, told US Weekly that they are exploring legal options, claiming he and his client were “more than a bit surprised and troubled over the personal and private details articulated by Ms. Frankel about the marriage and its demise.”
Frankel and Hoppy split in 2012, following their 2010 wedding that aired on Bravo, Bethenny Getting Married.
