Bethenny Frankel Admits She 'Settled' For Ex Jason Hoppy

Bethenny Frankel may be the in the middle of a drawn-out divorce battle with Jason Hoppy, but that hasn't stopped her from publicly dissing her ex on her talk show.

The Skinnygirl founder was at it again last week, when "Millionaire Matchmaker" Patti Stanger stopped by her day-time talk show and offered some analysis on the kind of man Frankel needs in her life. ("The combo package," Stanger said: "hot and a billionaire.")

Frankel's response? “I’m certainly not looking, but I would never ever settle again."

"Do you think you settled with Jason?" Stanger asked.

"I do, yes, I do," Frankel said.

Ouch. Frankel, a former "Real Housewives of New York City" star, is still legally married to Hoppy and the two are currently in a custody battle for daughter, Bryn. In October 2013, Frankel admitted on her show that she had not married the love of her life -- a comment Stanger called "sick" later on that month.

"I think it's not a good idea to go out there and throw your exes under the bus even if it goes wrong," Stanger told Life & Style magazine.

Frankel was sure to bring the criticism up in her interview with Stanger, but the matchmaker stood by her remarks.

"I do believe in that," Stanger said. "I do believe in not throwing your exes under the bus ... That shouldn't be for the world to hear. But I know you're a person who likes to tell everything."
