The saga of Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy continues. The bitter ex-husband and wife have been embroiled in court battles since their divorce was filed in 2013, most recently escalating into stalking charges against Jason for a verbal confrontation that occurred at their daughter, Bryn’s, school last year. Now, The Real Housewives Of New York star and Skinnygirl mogul is suing Jason for full custody of 7-year old Bryn. The couple currently share custody, but communicate exclusively through third parties.
On December 6th, Bethenny reportedly “reopened her 2013 divorce case” against Jason in order to seek altered custody arrangements, however the parents won’t appear in court until January.
When you marry for a spinoff, you… um, well the drama never ends! That is certainly the case with Bethenny Frankel and her ex Jason Hoppy who are currently in court battling over stalking and harassment charges!
The drama began after their FOUR-YEAR divorce finally wrapped up. Bethenny reported that Jason was consistently sending her a barrage of nasty texts, FaceTime calls and emails. After Jason publicly confronted her, the Real Housewives Of New York star called the police and had him arrested for stalking and harassment. Further charges followed when he still didn’t stop.
Yesterday Jason was back in court where he decided against accepting a proposed plea deal. Remember when we thought Jason was the normal one? Now it’s more of a case two wrongs don’t make a skinnygirl right!
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.
If we thought that Bethenny Frankel’s long awaited divorce settlement would be the last we’d ever hear of Jason Hoppy, we were sadly mistaken. The saga continues for The Real Housewives Of New York star and her ex-husband. Both will be headed to court in April over allegations that Jason was harassing and stalking Bethenny – charges that he was arrested for in January.
After allegedly threatening Bethenny (who was with her boyfriend Dennis Shields) at their daughter, Bryn’s, school in January, Jason was charged with aggravated harassment in the first degree, harassment in the second degree and stalking in the fourth degree. This incident came after Bethenny accused Jason of sending her approximately 160 threatening emails. Now, Jason is refusing a plea deal to settle these charges. He was offered this deal in exchange for taking anger management classes, which he has refused.

If The Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel was expecting peace and quiet after finalizing her years-long divorce, she was very wrong. Bethenny’s battle with her ex-husband rages on and boiled over and ended with Jason Hoppy arrested for stalking and harassment on Friday!
If you’ll recall, last November Bethenny’s boyfriend threatened legal action against Jason for sending harassing and horrible message about Bethenny. It seems things have not simmered down and that cease and desist did nothing to resolve the hostility.
