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.”
Bethenny admits that she she is soured on the idea of a fairy tale love story. "Part of my identity was always looking for a man. I always wanted to meet someone – to complete you, take care of you," Bethenny acknowledges of her history with men and with reality TV.
I've been wondering why Bethenny Frankel had crawled out of her Skinnygirl hole lately and started doing a lot of press. Then I remembered she has a new self-help book and a talk show to promote! Of course…
Since everyone wants to know about Bethenny's never-ending divorce to Jason Hoppy, she's doing what she does best and spilling her side of the story. I guess Jason was unsuccessful in securing that gag order…
"I'm going through a brutal, brutal time," Bethenny shares with ABC about her divorce and custody dispute. "I'm definitely bruised."
Oh Bethenny Frankel, if only… if only you hadn't staged that big ol' reality TV wedding and spinoff then maybe your very public divorce to Jason Hoppy wouldn't be so brutal!
With the couple battling in court over custody of their daughter Bryn and custody of their recently renovated apartment, Bethenny describes the divorce process as a daily struggle. "It's been hard," she admits to Life & Style. “It’s been difficult to stay sane.”
One may argue that Bethenny has never been sane – part of her charm? – but the divorce process is putting her closer to the brink than ever! To escape she's been vacationing (and possibly canoodling) with a billionaire and putting all her focus on her new talk show, Bethenny.
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.
I could be wrong, but I'm going to venture a guess that any celebrity couple who finds themselves facing divorce is just jinxing the situation if they claim to be "amicable." Case in point? Reality star Bethenny Frankel and Bethenny Ever After prop (and Bethenny's soon-to-be-ex-husband) Jason Hoppy.
Since the pair announced their uncontested and friendly split, the duo has been anything but. Friends of the pair are playing quite the game of he said/she said in the tabloids, and there doesn't seem to be an end in sight. Now, new court documents are apparently alleging even uglier undertones…but can we believe it?
