On one hand it seems like a pretty hefty sum for Jason to receive after such a short union, but on the other, I know there are people who would argue that he earned every penny. Of course, after over a year of battling out in court, there are some people who would pay just about anything to have the entire debacle over for good…but not Bethenny. It's about principle with this one (sure it is).
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.
I've got to hand it to Jason Hoppy. Y'all know that Bethenny Frankel never would have pegged him as the dude who would battle her at every turn of their divorce. He was so passive in their marriage, I figured he would have rolled over by now! While I'm not surprised that Jason is fighting for custody of the pair's daughter, I think Bethenny is floored that he's giving her a run for her money…literally.
It's her money Jason wants…at least to pay his attorney fees in this never ending divorce proceeding. As the two continue to face off in court over Brynn, their shared multi-million dollar home (as in, they are still both living there), and everything else under the sun, Jason is racking up the legal bills with his lawyer's work being estimated at $900 an hour. How do you get to be one of those people??
What do you do when you're a gazillionaire cocktail mogul whose soon-to-be-ex-husband hilariously won't move out of the apartment you share? Well, if you're Bethenny Frankel, you just get a second one so you can have quality time with your douchey new boyfriend daughter.
As Bethenny and Jason Hoppy struggle to come to a settlement agreement, things are getting more and more tense in their abode. I love that Jason is sticking to his guns. Apparently, his parents come to stay almost every weekend, making things all the more cramped, awkward, and humorous!
Oh please let this be true…please, please, please! It would be so amazing to see this come to fruition. I always knew that Bethenny Frankel had a secret type, and I was right! She's totally into douchey frat daddies who are still puffing their chests and doing keg stands a decade after they graduated from college. They are a fascinating breed, but don't get too close. They are prone to STDs and using more hair product than any woman I know!
And Bethenny is in love with one! Yes! She wants to shout it from the rooftops, no doubt, wearing a string bikini and one of those weird bejeweled belly necklace situations. Epic.
Quick question…will Bethenny Frankel ever learn? Sometimes I want to think she wants to do the right thing. Heck, sometimes I even think she's more vulnerable than I'd ever want to give her credit for being. Of course, then she goes and does something like this.
It seems that Bethennyis more concerned with standing her ground (which, in real terms, means getting her way), and now she andJason Hoppy are headed to court. So much for that amicable divorce she kept touting, right? Unable to reach an agreement (read: Bethenny wouldn't budge on her extreme demands), sources are reporting that the once semi-happy couple's divorce is becoming more and more contentious…if that was even possible!
According to Radar Online, Bethenny and Jason are likely headed to trial. An insider shares that the pair went before a judge last Friday in New York, revealing, "Bethenny is still seeking sole physical custody of Bryn, whereas Jason wants joint custody. The judge indicated it would be in Bethenny’s best interests if she were to sign off on an agreement, instead of rolling the dice at trial. She didn’t deal.”
Page Six is reporting that there is some major discord surrounding the talk show which is helmed by the reality star turned mogul…and Bethenny's attitude is to blame. Sources close to the show tell the site that Bethenny is "very particular and difficult," and it's already turning off some of her employees.
Do any of you remember that show starring Jim J. Bullock from the early '80s called Too Close For Comfort? I loved that show when I was little! Well, something tells me that Bethenny Frankel is feeling a bit cramped in her current living situation, although it's not sitcom with the hilarious Monroe!
