Well, well, well…this certainly took longer than I thought it would! Finally, former Real Housewives of New York star Jill Zarin is chatting up a storm about the state of Bethenny Frankel's marriage. Viewers watched the demise of former besties' friendship, and Jill has been grasping at straws to stay relevant. It's humorous (and slightly sad) to watch.
The brash redhead has practically made a career based on talking about her nemesis and what went wrong in their relationship. Jill will do or say just about anything to get her name back in the media. I've really never seen anything like it! Of course, it's no shock that she'd be adding her two cents on Bethenny's divorce from Jason Hoppy. I'm just surprised it took so long!
Let's say you built a giant brand based on how perfect and skinny and fab your life has been, and then let's say assume that a sperm donor the fairy tale marriage and a beautiful baby would be the cherry on top of said perfect life. You know what would really suck? If, due to your desire to become even more of an empire, you find yourself in a bitter divorce while you're in the middle of penning yet another lifestyle book.
Apparently, that is what is happening with the polarizing reality star Bethenny Frankel. In the midst of writing Skinnygirl Solutions, she now finds herself in a custody (and closet) battle with soon to be ex-husband Jason Hoppy. What's a girl to do?
Rut roh. Bethenny Ever After's fairy tale seems to be unraveling daily as Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy face off in what was once supposed to be a quick and civil divorce…as if any of us actually believed that claim! They are at least taking a break from battling over Bryn to focus on brawling over the family's uber-expensive and enormous apartment.
It seems that Bethenny is hoppying mad about recent rumors that Jason not only wants the apartment, but he can't wait to demolish her happy place…her walk-in closet. If that isn't bad enough, Jason's plans for the closet space are enough to make the tough diva in Bethenny faint with dispair. This may be one of the funniest reality news items of the week!
Bethenny Frankel thought her divorce would obviously be as whirlwind as her marriage, a 'yeah didn't work out' and go about their merry ways kind of deal. But she forgot about the Jason Hoppy part of the equation. And perhaps embarking on a media tour to pedal her marriage woes immediately after filing for divorce where she asked for full custody didn't help things!
In response to Bethenny's behavior, it seems Jason is furious – and he is not going to easily back down to her demands! Please don't give her ammunition for another book, Jason! I beg of you. Source say the Bethenny Ever After star is shocked that Jason is fighting back – and she never expected him to raise a fuss.
"Bethenny thought she could just roll him over and get out with no hassle," a source close to Jason reveals. A new article by Us Weekly exposes their nasty divorce and Jason's determination to fight for both himself and Bryn!
This is the song divorce that doesn't end…yes it goes on and on my friends! Show of hands, who thought Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy's divorce proceedings would go as smoothly as they both initially promised? Yeah, that's what I thought.
The battle for Bryn is now amping up as both Bethenny and Jason have filed for primary custody. Jason seems to want more stability for his young daughter, while the reality star/talk show host wants mommy-daughter bonding to occur while flitting around the world. Hmmm…middle ground shouldn't be too hard to find with these two. #goodluckhoppyyouregoingtoneedit
Ouch! The nasty-nasty divorce of Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy is apparently getting nastier by the minute. Yesterday Jason finally responded with his own divorce filing and requested the exact same things Bethenny did when she filed two weeks ago – that means both are fighting for full custody of their daughter Bryn.
And apparently Jason is fed up with Bethenny's media pandering and retaliating by hitting her where it hurts the most by comparing her to her estranged mother Bernadette Birk!
According to a source close to Bethenny, “Jason and Bethenny have been arguing incessantly and the divorce is definitely turning nasty."
According to TMZ, Jason fired back by filing papers also seeking primary custody of two-year-old Bryn along with child support – and he is fighting fire with fire which basically means the easy-peasy peaceful divorce the Bethenny Ever After star has been sobbing about wanting to the media, isn't going to happen.
