The Word: Jane Krakowski’s last fit before Christmas

Krakowski is playing Christmas hostess this year.

Much to “30 Rock” fans’ chagrin, Jane Krakowski is getting a little break for the holiday season now that the sitcom is currently filming its last-ever episode. “It’s a very busy time right now between wrapping up ’30 Rock’ and being a relatively new mom, and we’re having Christmas dinner at our house this year for the first time,” she said at an event for Bank of America, which raised money for Feeding America. “Hopefully it’ll be good; we wanted to sort of bring the joy of Christmas to our home, so our whole family is coming over. It should be a nice day and a nice way to sort of start a new chapter with ’30 Rock’ ending.”

Frankel’s marriage is ‘pretty much over’

Bethenny Frankel already has a successful empire — does she need a successful marriage?

According to RadarOnline, she has already made her choice, and it’s going to be her work.

“It’s pretty much over between Bethenny and Jason,” a source tells the site about Frankel and husband Jason Hoppy, with whom she has a 2-year-old daughter named Bryn. Frankel reportedly took Bryn to Miami for Thanksgiving without Hoppy. “They are already living separate lives,” says the source.

The source also says that Frankel isn’t involved in her marriage and is instead focused on her Skinnygirl drinks franchise, book deals and upcoming talk show gig. “She doesn’t seem to be too upset about the demise of their marriage. She is really focused on her career and her product line right now, so it sort of consumes her, which is probably why the marriage starting falling apart in the first place,” the source says.



Zellweger’s new man?
