Bethenny Frankel says it was Andy Cohen who told her to marry ex-husband Jason Hoppy, which she called the “worst idea in history.”

Speaking on the latest episode of her “Just B” podcast, “Real Housewives of New York City” alum, 52, briefly touched on her disastrous ill-fated union with the pharmaceutical sales executive that was followed by a bitter eight-year divorce.

“Andy told me to marry Jason, so, there we go,” the Skinnygirl founder told her former costar Jill Zarin. “F–king worst idea in history.”

Frankel and Hoppy tied the knot in March 2010, but she filed for divorce just two years later.

After years of court hearings — mostly relating to custody of the former couple’s 13-year-old daughter, Bryn — Frankel and Hoppy finalized their acrimonious divorce in January 2021.

The ex-couple tied the knot in a lavish, highly-publicized wedding after Frankel found out she was pregnant with Bryn.

But things went south for the pair soon after their nuptials, with the pair announcing their separation in December 2012 before the Bravolebrity pulled the plug on the marriage for good.

What followed was a years-long custody battle over Bryn, with the exes reaching a financial settlement in 2016.

Frankel eventually got full legal custody as well as primary residential custody.

Frankel opened up about the car crash marriage in 2021, calling the split a “nightmare divorce.”

Frankel said she initially didn’t want a prenup prior to marrying Hoppy because she thought the idea of having one was “embarrassing” and “awkward.”
