Bethenny Frankel Disses Jason Hoppy in Scathing Confession on Her Talk Show (VIDEO)

Bethenny FrankelThe divorce between Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy hasn't exactly been like the lovey-dovey one between Courtney Cox and David Arquette, but Bethenny may have saved for biggest insult for now. During her talk show, guest Patti Stanger told Bethenny she deserved to be with a hot billionaire (me too!) and Bethenny oh-so-tactfully replied:

I’m certainly not looking, but I would never ever settle again.

Ooooh, what? So Patti does the inevitable and asks if she's referring to her ex and father of her child, Jason.

"Do you think you settled with Jason?" Patti asks.

Well, what do YOU think, people? Bethenny replies: "Yes, I do."

Just so there's no room for misunderstanding. Yeesh, there is probably no worse insult than saying you "settled" for someone. Calling an ex an asshole is one thing -- your fiery response means there was probably great love there at one point.

But saying you "settled" just sounds like you never loved that person at all. Never felt passion for him. You were, essentially, with that person because you couldn't find anything better at the time. You cut down your expectations and "settled" for something easy.

Ouch, ouch, ouch. Jason's gotta be feeling that one!

More From The Stir: Rich Bethenny Frankel Wants Jason Hoppy to Pay WHAT in Their Divorce?

Patti chastizes Bethenny for admitting this out loud, but Bethenny defends herself and says she has a talk show and therefore an obligation to be honest.

There's honest and then there's brutal. And when you've got a kid involved, one who will hear and understand all of these comments some day (the Internet does not go away, folks), it's not necessarily the most mature thing to do.

Didn't she EVER love Jason? If not, then that's on her, not him. Why marry someone you don't love?

Have you ever settled? Have you ever admitted it?

What made her so special that she settled for a regular guy? She was only known for being on real housewives, yet was neither Parent or a housewife at that time. She didn't earn her skinny girl fortune until she was already with her husband.


Major or eye roll

He seemed decent and laid back...she was in constant therapy. ...I doubt shebwill ever he truly happy because she is so damaged by her past

This makes me really sad. Some people can't allow themselves to be happy.

Don't we have a high opinion of ourselves!

Doesnt sound very harsh. Its what most women say after a divorce. Par for the course stuff really

I watched her in her Bravo spin off shows with Jason and I wish I could talk to her and tell her to stop labeling herself as "damaged."   She said that over and over on those episodes and I wish she could find some therapist who would convince her she's got her whole life ahead of her and to stop dwelling on the past.

Awful and conceited. What about your daughter? Please end this show and make her go away. No class despite her millions.

No! Jason is the one that settled.

I never like Jason for Bethenny, he never accepted her. He never tried to understand her issues. She's been in therapy for years, she has some serious attachment/abandonment issues. He knew that when they got together yet expected her to just magically get better over night. And while Skinny Girl didn't officially take off until after they were together, that's always been her business. He had nothing to do with it until after it got big. She'll doesn't owe him shit. He was a terrible partner. I wish her the best.

She's a hot mess, and he seems like a great guy. End of story. He's better off without all of her drama. Thank goodness that little girl has a grounded father and great paternal grandparents.
