Bethenny Frankel announces split from husband

A divorce is difficult on both parties, even when it's amicable. When it's a celebrity who faces the world looking in during the divorce, stress can create even more of an impact. The important thing to remember is the legal obligations of both people. Doing so can help quickly resolve the divorce.

Those in New Jersey may be interested to know that Bethenny Frankel, a star on several Bravo shows including "Real Housewives of New York City," announced her pending divorce from her husband of three years on Dec. 23. The two have a 2-year-old daughter, Bryn, as well. The real question is what would happen to the "Skinnygirl" fortune, which Frankel earned when her cocktail line was acquisitioned by Jim Beam.

According to reports, the couple had signed a prenuptial agreement that waives her husband's rights to the Skinnygirl fortune and other business deals, as well as endorsements. The prenup was altered after the marriage, but sources state that the Skinnygirl business was still waived from belonging to Frankel's husband in any way.

It's wise to consider the options available when having a dispute during a divorce, especially if there were any agreement modifications that took place. Although a prenup is made with the best of intentions, it may not always fully encompass the current situation, so those in a similar situation would be sensible to seek legal advice on what could happen.
