After almost two years of bitter, drawn-out divorce proceedings, the custody portion of Bethenny Frankel's battle with Jason Hoppy has been settled. People reports that the two will share co-parenting status over four-year-old daughter Bryn.

Frankel and Hoppy filed for divorce in January 2013, after splitting just one month earlier. Frankel has since been very open about the caustic process that followed, most recently sharing that Hoppy said he was going to "destroy her."

As for the fight over their daughter, Frankel's attorney told People that she is "delighted that this custody battle has been resolved; that his co-parenting status has been acknowledged; that the parties' child will have the benefit of being raised by both parents; and most importantly, that his daughter will no longer be at the mercy of a high-profile courtroom battle."

This is really the first good news in what has been a very long process. As for the future, Frankel told Redbook it's unlikely she'll marry again. Notably, Frankel's recognition that it is "too soon to think about" remarriage is at least more optimistic than the time she compared dating after divorce to eating after food poisoning.
