"It brings me great sadness to say that Jason and I are separating," Frankel said in a statement obtained by OTRC.com. "This was an extremely difficult decision that as a woman and a mother, I have to accept as the best choice for our family."

"We have love and respect for one another and will continue to amicably co-parent our daughter who is and will always remain our first priority," she continued in the statement. "This is an immensely painful and heartbreaking time for us."

Frankel also posted a cryptic Tweet on December 23, saying to her 1.1 million followers: "I am heartbroken. I am sad. We will work through this as a family."
