I can't say I am surprised by this recent development in the Bethenny Frankel/Jason Hoppy never ending divorce proceedings, but it's sad nonetheless…and it has to do with the custody of the pair's three-year-old daughter Bryn.
As you know, Bethenny filed for sole custody over a year ago, and she and Jason have been battling it out in court ever since, all the while sharing their high dollar apartment. In the meantime, Bethenny has been linked to different men as Jason plays the doting dad card when the paparazzi are around. Who knows if it's sincere, but he certainly seems to be winning the public's sympathy in this circus.

According to Radar Online, the feuding couple has been back in court this week after an emergency hearing last week when Bethenny was named Warren Lichtenstein's girlfriend in a suit filed by the gazillionaire's ex-girlfriend. The British heiress is seeking over $570,000 in back child support. The filings claim that Warren has been living the “extravagant playboy lifestyle” with Bethenny while neglecting his financial obligations to his child. Of course, Bethenny has now moved on to financier Michael A. Cerussi, III.
If that wasn't enough, the court is now requiring that Bethenny and Jason's daughter Bryn undergo a psychiatric evaluation in light of her parents' fierce custody dispute. What's more is that the estranged duo must hand over all of their daughter's medical records.
Sources close to the reality star turned talk show host don't think she'll back down any time soon. An insider tells the site, “Jason would like to get the divorce and custody settled, once and for all but Bethenny is making it impossible.”
I really wish these two could look at the impact of their actions on their daughter. I won't hold my breath though…
