While daughter Bryn celebrated the holidays with her dad, Jason Hoppy, nearly 2,000 miles away, Bethenny Frankel looked frail and drained as she sipped tequila on the rocks and picked at a salad in Aspen, Colo., eyewitnesses tell the new issue of In Touch, on newsstands now.
Bethenny announced on Dec. 23 that she and her husband of almost three years are splitting — and multiple sources are telling In Touch the stress is taking a physical toll on her.
An eyewitness who saw the reality star dining with two friends at Aspen’s Il Mulino on Christmas Eve says, “I didn’t see Bethenny eat anything. … She looked really skinny.”
On Christmas, another witness noticed Bethenny's frame at sushi restaurant Matsuhisa. "She was very, very thin," says the source.
“It was devastating for Bethenny to be without Bryn for Christmas,” a friend of Bethenny’s tells In Touch, “but this was something Jason wanted, so she agreed. She always wants to do what’s best for Bryn, even if that means that she has to be alone.”
But the sacrifice came at a price. “She was quiet and seemed sad,” says a source who saw Bethenny shopping at Prada on Dec. 24. “She looked tired and much thinner than on TV.”
