Bethenny Frankel

Bethenny Frankel of the Real Housewives of New York has never shied from conflict. So she’s still fighting her ex-husband Jason Hoppy over custody of their 8-year-old daughter Bryn Hoppy.  Bethenny divorced Jason in 2016. However, their battle over Bryn rages on.

The conflict is so toxic that it made an expert parent coordinator quit in 2015 when the couple still lived together. Not surprisingly, he singled out their lack of willingness to compromise. Well, matters have not improved since Bethenny has returned to court to seek full custody. 

Bethenny Frankel Says That Reality TV Isn’t Always Real During Custody Case

In what must be one of the ugliest divorces and custody disputes of all time, Real Housewives of New York star Bethenny Frankel and her ex-husband Jason Hoppy continue to spar over custody of their only child, Bryn Hoppy. The couple’s toxic marriage finally came to an end in July of 2016. The drama did not.

In August 2018, Bethenny suffered a major loss when her boyfriend (and possible fiancé) Dennis Shields was found dead of a suspected opioid overdose. RHONY viewers saw how Bethenny handled her grief. Eventually, she decided to move on with a new man, Paul Bernon. She even met with a grief counselor on the show.

You might remember Real Housewives of New York star, Bethenny Frankel, was married for a hot minute. Well, it was long enough to get a spin-off… If you blinked, you missed Bethenny and her five seconds of wedded bliss with Jason Hoppy. The former couple shares a daughter, Bryn, who is the subject of a nasty custody battle. So far, Bryn has grown up only knowing of her parents fighting and harassing each other.

Since 2013, Bethenny and Jason have engaged in mutual mudslinging in a courtroom war that has outlasted their actual marriage. Neither party seems willing to compromise. Currently, Bethenny wants sole custody of her daughter. After throwing down some heavy accusations on Jason’s alleged nasty attitude, Bethenny was recently forced to evaluate some of her own nasty attitudes. You know, because she is consistently filmed yelling at people on a television show.

Celebrate Mother’s Day With Our List Of 8 Scene Stealing Moms From Reality TV

Do you ever watch reality TV and feel like the cast members are friends in your head? How about the parents? Do you ever watch and wonder what it would be like to have them as a mom? Just me? Alright, then.

I cannot help being fascinated by the relationships between reality TV stars and their mothers. Not all moms are created equal and not everyone is meant to be a reality TV star. Some of them are just hilarious. They steal every scene and deserve to star in shows of their own. It gets to a point with some of these cast members that it seems like their moms are the reason they’re still on TV. I don’t want to call anyone out, but when your mom gets her own on-camera interviews on your show, she’s definitely stealing your shine. Whether she’s trying to or not.

Real Housewives Of New York Recap: Ship Happens

Ah, Lady Sonja Morgan. I don’t really have anything bad to say about Sonja. Since joining Real Housewives of New York in 2010, she has proved to be entertaining. Her main partner in crime used to be Ramona Singer. Over the years the two have bonded over Pinot Gigolo Grigio and multiple hardships. All while being filmed, of course.

So far this season, we haven’t seen a great deal of Sonja riding the Ramonacoaster. Sonja thinks Ramona crossed a line when she spoke of Dennis Shields death in a disparaging way (she was right). Ramona thought Sonja went to the wackadoo farm during the Berkshires trip. I think it was just our old pal, Drunk Sonja. Drunk Sonja means you no harm! Maybe Sonja is still salty about Ramona’s make-out sesh with Harry Dubin? Also, ew. If Sonja and Ramona were a Facebook relationship status, right now it would be, “it’s complicated”.

Ramona Singer - Real Housewives Of New York

Real Housewives Of New York is like being in city traffic and hearing a loud bang and not knowing where it came from and whether or not it’s a gun going off, a car backfiring, or Ramona Singer exploding in your face.

Luann de Lesseps is in full hoity-toity mode. Cabaret Star has replaced Countess as Luann’s new schtick, and she invited all the girls to a Halloween party where she’s performing. The theme is insane asylum – perfect for this group! Luann is dressed as a sexy nurse, but Bethenny Frankel comes as a slutty guardian angel, aka Luann’s savior. Was that shady or unintentional?

Luann’s performance is supposed to start at 11, but of course, the Countess is late, girls! After waiting around for 2 hours, when Luann couldn’t even come down to say hello, or invite them backstage to her dressing room, Bethenny leaves explaining that her babysitter is expecting her. 

Ramona Singer - Real Housewives Of New York

On tonight’s Real Housewives Of New York, some Housewives try to change their image by doing some good in the world for once! While others (Luann de Lesseps) are clinging onto their bad girl ways way, way past their expiration date!

Don’t cross the countess and her cabaret! When Luann learns that Bethenny Frankel bailed on her Cabaret-Halloween celebration, Luann makes another snarky comment about Bethenny’s friendship.
