Bethenny Frankel Promotes 'Skinnydipping' on 'Extra'

Posted Wednesday May 23, 2012 6:15 PM GMT

Despite some current negative rumors swirling around, Bethenny Frankel put it all aside and showed up to film "Extra" at The Grove with a smile on her face on Wednesday morning (May 23).

The original Skinnygirl looked fabulous in olive green trouser shorts and a blue and white sequin embellished striped tank top as she took the stage to talk with Mario Lopez about her new and first fiction novel "Skinnydipping."

Before heading off to the press event the 41-year-old took to her Twitter page writing, "I'm going to be at @TheGroveLA tomorrow for @ExtraTV. If you're in the area, swing by and say hi @10:30am!"

The promotions don't end there. Later this evening Frankel will also be having a book signing at a local Barnes & Noble as well as sitting down with Jimmy Kimmel tonight.

In the midst of all of the book excitement, rumors have been coming in from all angles that the natural food chef and her husband of two years Jason Hoppy are heading for splitsville.

According to numerous reports, the "Bethenny Ever After" stars have both met with divorce lawyers, but official papers have not yet been signed. Sources are saying that the business mogul maybe cozying up to her Skinnygirl partner Matt Hesse as they were spotted out to dinner in NYC earlier in the year.

However, a new report put out by the Huffington Post on Wednesday claims that a friend of the entrepreneur says they are still going strong, saying, "They are still together and want to make this relationship work. If she wanted to leave Jason for Matt she would do it,” adding, “she is not the sort of girl to sneak about behind anyone's back. She is honest to a fault and has no problem saying exactly what she wants, including when it comes to her marriage.”
