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!
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.
Days after filing for divorce from Jason Hoppy, the woe-is-me publicity tour begins for Bethenny Frankel. Who didn't see this one coming?! While Jason has remained mum about the details surrounding their separation, the Bethenny Ever After star who claims she's tired of living in the spotlight is disproving her point by beginning a torrent of media appearances.
First up Bethenny's made-for-TV friend and talk show benefactress Ellen! Bethenny sat down with Ellen today where the 42-year-old bawled about marriage not being a fairy tale and fame letting her down. Get your tissues ready. #sarcasm!
A weepy Bethenny announced that she feels like a failure for lasting a paltry three-years in her marriage. "I feel like a bit of a disappointment to all of you and I feel like a failure."
Most disappointing to Bethenny is the unfortunate realization that life is not a fairytale. "I really put it out there. I wanted the fairytale," she revealed.
Bethenny Frankel is using twitter as a medium to communicate with her fans in the wake of her divorce from Jason Hoppy. In lieu of doing interviews, she's letting "sources" and the media make claims that this was a very hard decision for her and that she is in despair over ending her marriage.
One month after announcing her separation, she filed for divorce, and wasted no time in requesting full custody of daughter Bryn, child support, medical and dental insurance, and to be listed as a beneficiary on Jason's life insurance policy.
When the media and the public got wind of her demands the blogs and internet erupted with comments. And apparently Bethenny, who made a business of plastering her life all over the place on Bethenny Ever After, is frustrated by the reactions she's getting.
"I need a little break from unsolicited advice today. Let's all just lighten it up even if just for a few hours," she tweeted hours after the story broke.
Just two weeks after announcing their split, Bethenny pulled the trigger and officially filed for divorce. Today we learned that in those papers, Bethenny is asking for several things from Jason – including child support and life insurance.
According to reports, the former Mrs. Hoppy is asking that Jason pay child support for their daughter Bryn, along with medical, dental, optical, therapeutic, and orthodontic expenses for Bryn AND herself. Bethenny also wants Jason to have a life insurance policy that names her and Bryn as beneficiaries.
