Her divorce from Jason Hoppy may not be finalized yet, but Bethenny Frankel is 100 percent positive that she never wants to walk down the aisle again.

In an interview on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live, host Andy Cohen asked the Real Housewives of New York star if she still believed in marriage following the nasty, public split from her estranged husband.

“I will never get legally married again,” she told Cohen. “It doesn’t mean that I would not commit to someone, and I’m not jaded or bitter about love. I think there are amazing guys out there, but I will never, ever be legally married again.”

Frankel has been locked in the bitter divorce battle with Hoppy since the couple called it quits after three years of marriage back in December 2012.

While the reality star didn’t directly say what led to the end of their relationship, it clearly had to do with subject of cash.

“I think that fame and attention and money does not bring out the best in everybody,” she told Cohen. “Money in many ways is the root of all evil.”

Currently happy and dating, Frankel has clearly moved on – despite the fact that she is still legally married to her spouse.

“Marriage is the Hotel California,” she said. “You can check out but you can never leave.”

Frankel returns to Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New York on April 7.
