U.S. reality star Bethenny Frankel has filed for divorce to officially end her two-year marriage.

The former The Real Housewives of New York star confirmed her relationship with Jason Hoppy was over just before Christmas and she has since lodged papers for a summons for divorce - the first step in the legal process - in a Big Apple court, according to TMZ.com.

The estranged couple wed in March, 2010 and is parents to a two-year-old daughter named Bryn.
