Bethenny Frankel 'ecstatic' with divorce

Bethenny Frankel is "ecstatic" her divorce has been finalised.

The 'Real Housewives of New York' star split from husband Jason Hoppy four year ago and after so many disputes, she's thrilled they have finally sorted everything out.

However, details of the divorce will remain private for the sake of the couple's six-year-old daughter Bryn.

Her lawyer Allan Mayefsky told Us Weekly magazine: "Out of respect for her privacy and the well-being of her daughter, Bethenny is declining to comment. We can confirm that the divorce has been resolved. Our client is ecstatic that this long chapter is over, and she is looking forward to moving on."

Jason's own legal representative Bernard Clair added: "Jason is thrilled that this chapter of his life is over and extremely pleased with the settlement that was reached. Jason looks forward to the future and enjoying that time privately with family, friends and most important to him, his daughter."

Bethenny, 45, recently revealed she is planning a huge party once the divorce had been finalised.

She said: "I believe there's an end in sight. I do. I think we are at the very end. I've said that before and been wrong. But this is the closest I've ever felt.

"I might just have party plans. You don't want to decorate the nursery until the baby comes, but I'm excited, just as excited as someone is excited to paint the nursery pink. I don't know many parties that would rival my divorce party, I'll tell you that."

Bethenny - who had to pay Jason $26,000 a month in spousal support until a court recently ruled she no longer had to - also said she couldn't understand why it was taking so long.

She shared: "You know, there's a lot more to that puzzle than people will realise. Divorces on two-year marriages don't normally take almost four years to get divorced."
