Bethenny filed for divorce WAY back in January 2013, but she and her soon-to-be-ex, Jason Hoppy, have been squabbling over money, custody and their luxurious apartment ever since. Now Bethenny has been ordered to cough up $100,000 to his lawyers. The payment is to be subtracted from whatever financial settlement they reach — if they ever reach one.

It seemed like a storybook romance for the ages. The beginning of Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy's relationship played out on The Real Housewives of New York City — even the announcement of their pregnancy was documented by Bravo. They seemed so happy as they planned their wedding on Bethenny Ever After and then came the birth of their baby girl Bryn.
But things started to go south for these lovebirds when Skinnygirl cocktails — a brand Bethenny developed — sold for a reported $100 million. They seemed to fight more in front of the Bravo cameras — about raising their daughter, family time and the renovation of their $5 million dream apartment.
After filing for divorce the hits just kept coming for Bethenny. First, she and Jason continued to live together for months in their apartment, then Bethenny was the one who had to move out. Now, it seems she is paying attorneys for both sides.
The good news — she can afford it. Plus rumor is that she has found love with billionaire Warren Lichtenstein. Or at least she was named as his girlfriend in a recent lawsuit and the couple have been spotted vacationing together.
I say make nice with your ex, Bethenny and settle the divorce, before you have to make another payment to his attorneys. Move on with your new man and be happy!
