Bethenny Frankel planning divorce party

Bethenny Frankel is planning a huge party when her divorce is finalised.

The 'Real Housewives' star split from Jason Hoppy after two years of marriage in 2012 and filed for divorce in January 2013 but their union still hasn't officially been dissolved, and she is looking forward to a huge celebration once she finally gets documents legally ending her marriage.

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."

A court recently ruled the 45-year-old star - who has five-year-old daughter Bryn with Jason - no longer has to pay spousal support of a reported $26,000 a month to her estranged husband, and the Skinnygirl founder admits the decision "felt good".

She told Vulture: "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.

"There's a lot more to it than meets the eye, but that felt good and just. I'm adjusting to the typical gender and role reversal of being the breadwinner."
