Bethenny Frankel's divorce drama appears to finally be over.

More than three years after the Real Housewives of New York City star filed for divorce from Jason Hoppy, the couple's marriage has officially come to an end. 

"Out of respect for her privacy and the well-being of her daughter, Bethenny is declining to comment," the Bravo star's attorney told E! News. "We can confirm that the divorce has been resolved. Our client is ecstatic that this long chapter is over, and she is looking forward to moving on with her life."

"Jason is thrilled that this chapter of his life is over; he is extremely pleased with the settlement that was reached," Jason's attorney added in a statement to People who first confirmed the news. "Jason looks forward to the future and enjoying that time privately with family, friends and most important to him, his daughter."

The latest court development is likely a huge relief for both parties who have experienced their fair share of drama away from the cameras. In addition to a custody battle, the couple endured some conflict over who could live in the Tribeca apartment Bethenny purchased in 2001.

Just last month, E! News confirmed that Jason had moved out of the apartment that later proved to be an emotional experience for his ex-wife.

"I walked in and it just washed over me. I sobbed for hours," the Bravo reality star said on her Sirius XM radio show, B Real with Bethenny. "It was like this release. And you always think things are going to be one way. I thought it was going to be, like, the biggest party ever. I'd be roller-skating through there with my top off, my tits hanging out, so excited—and there's nothing good about any of it. It was all just remembering moving in there. It was a hideous experience, and I just didn't know how to even process the feeling."

During happier times, Bravo fans watched Bethenny and Jason fall in love on the Real Housewives of New York City. They would later get married in a wedding featured on her spin-off Bethenny Ever After. The pair was married for two years and have one daughter together.

As for what Bethenny is doing today, the Skinnygirl founder recently landed in Los Angeles after a weekend in Las Vegas. According to Snapchat, the reality star spent her morning doing yoga and hanging out with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Rinna.

Couples Married on TV

In regards to her dating life, the businesswoman has found happiness with new boyfriend Dennis Shields.

While he's staying away from the cameras, viewers got to hear a little bit about the New York banker in a recent Real Housewives episode. 

"It's nice to date someone really smart and passionate, and who's busy," Bethenny shared during her confessional. "I don't want him living my life in my apartment with my money. I want a partner."
