Bethenny Frankel's custody dispute with ex-husband Jason Hoppy went to trial this week and things got extremely heated with lawyers for each party accusing the other of horrible misdeeds.
Bethenny took the stand to testify against Jason and accused him of threatening her and mocking her in front of their daughter Bryn. She also accused him of refusing to flush the toilet! And pointing out that there was negative PR about her. Cause, like, duh… Anyway the entire experience was traumatic for Bethenny. Umm… excuse me for pointing out the obvious, but isn't the true victim here Bryn?
The couple reconvenes in court next week where Bethenny will be cross-examined and Jason will take the stand. Unfortunately sources say things aren't looking good for Bethenny who is fighting for primary physical custody and sole legal custody while Jason is requesting joint.

And likely if Lisa is returning the network will offer her more as she also has a successful spinoff for the network in Vanderpump Rules!
As Farrah Abraham continues to promote her erotic trilogy – Celebrity Sex Tape – she continues to remind me how important it is for my young children to learn vocabulary and how to put words together to form coherent sentences. "I really enjoy at this time of my life writing about sex," Farrah tells FOX 411. "I think it is because I am 22 – and I am kind of single. What better way to express yourself in a positive way than writing. I really enjoy writing."
When will Farrah begin to express herself in English?
So, the Couples Therapy singleton says we'll see her on VH1 again soon, but she claims reality TV isn't her primary focus right now. "I am looking forward to grow my portfolio with literacy and the books and different genres. Hopefully I'll write a business book and I'll do more fictional things." Or hopefully not. Also? Farrah expects E.L. James to feel pressured to write more to keep up with her amazing portfolio of literacy.
