Bethenny Frankel's Husband Jason Hoppy Files Aggressive New Divorce Papers: Report
Things are getting ugly fast between Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy. About three weeks after Skinnygirl mogul Frankel, 42, filed for divorce from Hoppy, 41, the pharmaceutical executive has counter-filed with aggressive papers of his own, TMZ reports.
Disputing nearly every major detail from Frankel's filing, Hoppy has a long list of requests: First and foremost, Hoppy wants primary custody of Bryn, the couple's 2-year-old daughter. (Bravo star Frankel also asked for primary custody.) Just like Frankel, Hoppy seeks child support from his ex, whom he wed in spring 2010, and similarly asks for medical and dental expenses for himself and for Bryn.
Again countering Frankel's own request, Hoppy seeks "exclusive use and occupancy of the marital residence" (their $5 million, four-bedroom apartment in NYC's Tribeca neighborhood). He also asks his future ex-wife to maintain a life insurance policy on herself, making him and Bryn beneficiaries -- another detail likewise requested by Frankel. Finally, TMZ reports, Hoppy requests that the talk show host pays his lawyer and accountant.
One thing apparently not at stake in this new war? Frankel's estimated $100 million fortune earned through her New York Times bestsellers, her Skinnygirl empire and daytime talk show; the couple signed a prenuptial agreement before tying the knot.
"I feel like a failure," Frankel admitted to Ellen DeGeneres earlier this month. "I really put it out there. I wanted the fairytale. I thought I had it. And Bryn is my fairy tale . . .This is excruciating, I have to say."
