Last season on Real Housewives of New York, viewers saw the break up of the friendship of Bethenny Frankel and Carole Radziwill. The heartache continued for Bethenny offscreen with the death of her on-again-off-again boyfriend Dennis Shields from a suspected drug overdose.
Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel can’t seem to catch a break. Her custody battle with her ex-husband Jason Hoppy has been extremely volatile. His alleged threats against her have gotten so bad, she recently requested full custody of their daughter Bryn Hoppy. The amount of stress she is under must be unnerving.
On top of that, Bethenny has also been going through several health issues. During last season’s cast trip to Columbia, she had an allergic reaction to some fish. A few months ago, she had another allergic reaction which put her into anaphylactic shock. After, she had vision and memory issues. Now Bethenny has even more health concerns.
Jason Hoppy has been the source of much speculation and – according to the Manhattan Supreme Court – continued stalking of ex-wife Real Housewives Of New York star Bethenny Frankel. Two new counts of stalking were added to the three Hoppy was already charged with back in January, after he allegedly told Bethenny, “I will destroy you, you can get all the lawyers you want, you’ve been warned,” at their 6-year old daughter Bryn’s school.
After the January incident, plus sending approximately 160 threatening emails to Bethenny over a period of months, Jason was charged with aggravated harassment in the first degree, harassment in the second degree and stalking in the fourth degree. Since then, Jason has asked the judge to throw the case out, even refusing a plea deal (which demanded he take anger management classes) to put the case to rest. Instead of complying with Jason’s requests, however, Judge Phyllis Chu slapped him with two more charges – due perhaps to new evidence submitted in the case.
It’s not too surprising that Bethenny Frankel’s daughter Bryn Hoppy is not on Real Housewives of New York. Aside from arguing with other Housewives about their personal lives and promoting her brand, most of Bethenny’s life is shielded from the reality show cameras.
I can’t say that I blame Bethenny after she took the exact opposite route with her exposure and had a spin-off show devoted to her short-lived marriage with Jason Hoppy. I mean she took a pregnancy test on camera. She shared an awful lot back in the day and things did not work out the way that she imagined, so I kind of get why she’s trying to be a little more private these days.

The Real Housewives of New York City’s resident razor-tongued go-getter, Bethenny Frankel opened up this week about the never-ending saga of her tempestuous pending divorce to Jason Hoppy. The ‘skinny gal’ reveals how she is pretty content with her life as is, despite the occasional bricks that are flung her way. In her usual matter-of-fact way of seeing things, Bethenny states, “Life is roses, it’s got petals and it’s got thorns,” and that through it all, she still manages to get out of bed each morning with a purpose.
The gritty multimillionaire reality star discussed how her divorce has been such a toxic experience for her, she likened it to “a drop of poison in the ocean.” Bethenny went on to explain her uncompromisingly direct statement. “Am I feeling it? No. But it’s there. I mean, it doesn’t weigh down on me every minute of the day, it’ll flair up sometimes, like when people have arthritis or something, but it’s there. It’s chronic. It’s not that emotionally draining, it does come up at times; you have to really just be very zen about it. You have to just say, ‘This is all supposed to be happening, it makes me stronger.”
Bethenny Frankel is taking a break from filming The Real Housewives of New York over the holidays. The former talk show host headed to Miami with her boyfriend of more than a year, Michael Cerussi, and her daughter Bryn Hoppy.
Bethenny hit the beach yesterday in a white string bikini and a huge floppy hat as she helped Bryn look for seashells and played around in the water.
Bethenny is taking the complete opposite approach with this relationship and keeping it as private as possible. We hardly ever see these two out and about together. Hopefully it will help this relationship survive a lot longer since no reality cameras will be tracking their every disagreement….

At first, I was kinda shocked Bethenny Frankel announced her return to Real Housewives of New York prior to any official season seven announcements courtesy of Andy or Bravo, but I’ve since had an ah-ha! moment.
Bethenny‘s currently in the middle of a press tour for her books, Cookie Meets Peanut and Skinnygirl Cocktails, so now she’s promoting the books AND she’s talking about the ratings challenged show. As they say, timing is everything.
In a recent interview with Extra, Bethenny talked about her decision to return to Real Housewives of New York, her personal life, and her reaction to Real Housewives of New Jersey‘s Teresa Giudice‘s prison sentence.
