When Jason Hoppy and Bethenny Frankel met back in 2008 it seemed like a real life fairy tale. She was single in her late thirties and co-starring on the popular Bravo reality series, The Real Housewives of New York City. Her relationship with Jason was a whirlwind romance. They got pregnant soon after they started dating and then quickly got married before starring on their own reality TV series. It didn’t take long for things to fall apart. Bethenny and Jason were engaged in a nasty divorce that lasted nearly four years — longer than their relationship! The dust in the courtroom has finally settled, but these two continue to make headlines. Here’s a look at 12 things you probably didn’t know about Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy’s relationship:

12. How They Met

Jason Hoppy, a pharmaceuticals salesman, met the Real Housewives star and in a Manhattan nightclub back in November 2008. He walked up to her and said, “Are you ready to get the stick out of your a–?” which was his way of asking her to dance. Their romance moved quickly after that. The two got a pleasant surprise when they found out they were pregnant in October 2009. Frankel wanted to get married before she became a mom so the two got engaged and wed at the Four Seasons in New York City in March 2010. She was seven months pregnant when they tied the knot and she gave birth to their daughter, Bryn, in May 2010.

11. The Suffered a Miscarriage Together

During their short marriage, Bethenny and Jason managed to get pregnant a second time after welcoming their first daughter, Bryn, in May 2010. At the time, Bethenny was 41, so the fact that she was pregnant at all came as a surprise to her. Unfortunately, the news of their second pregnancy was fleeting and only a day after they found out she was six weeks pregnant, she miscarried. They were able to find out that the baby was a girl and it was incredibly devastating for them both at the time. “I definitely felt like I went through that alone, that was definitely a negative time in my house,” she said in an interview with ET.
