Jason Hoppy Wants Bethenny Frankel To Pay His Legal Fees

March 28, 2014 08:56 AM by Stephanie Gustafson


Just when you think the never-ending divorce of Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy may be drawing to a close, Jason manages to ensure the battle’s continuation. The former husband of The Real Housewives Of New York City’s biggest star is in it for the long haul — and he’s hoping to force Bethenny to pay his legal fees.

Jason Hoppy has never garnered much praise from The Real Housewives Of New York City’s Facebook fans, but he just might have thrown away any final scraps of support that remained. He recently decided to petition the court to force Bethenny Frankel to pay all the legal fees related to the ongoing divorce case, and fans definitely do not approve.

Although records fail to reveal how much Bethenny’s ex owes, a report from Page Six indicates that he could be paying his attorney as much as $900 an hour, a figure that shocked the Twitter world.  But it makes sense that Jason is paying the big bucks, as he;s currently being represented by Bernard Clair, the divorce lawyer best known for helping Lauren Silverman (Simon Cowell’s baby mama) to end her marriage with Andrew Silverman.

In spite of all the divorce drama, Bethenny says that she’s finally feeling “a little liberation.” During a recent interview with Andy Cohen, the reality star revealed, “I am dating and I am happy,” adding that it’s been a relief to enjoy “ just a little bit of not feeling so bad.” That being said, Bethenny admits that her divorce from Jason Hoppy still leaves her feeling incredibly stressed. “I have not totally come out on the other side.”

Do you think Jason Hoppy will prove successful in his efforts to force Bethenny Frankel to pay his legal fees? Leave a comment and let us know!

    Bethany Frankel only married Hoppy so she could have a baby .. she was screwed up before she married him and is still screwed up .. she should pay the legal fees .. and allow this man to continue being the good dad he is, and always has been ..

    These people need to get this over and done with already. Jason is starting to look like a schmuck. They need to agree on custody (Bethenny gets primary custody and Jason gets equal visitation or whatever), Bethenny needs to fork over a little bit for Jason’s help with Skinny Girl consulting, they need to decide on the apartment, and then move on already.

    It makes complete sense that Jason wants to be reimbursed for his legal fees. Because the stakes are high with the divorse equally out and it most suredly that Bethenny had a high priced lawyer. Jason wouldn’t have had to gone that route if Bethabnny didn’t have money. Also since Bethanny kept the money that her Bravo fame created and Jason was equally part of the Skinny Girl product fame for she was dating him on the show Housewives when Skinny girl Margarita was first mentioned when she was in the Hamptons driving the Skinny Girl VW with Jason. Maybe she was the only one that profited and how fair is that? Not. So why should only she have the advantage of the better lawyers?

    Jason should get all he can from her. After all he gave her his sperm. That was all she wanted from him. She did not want a marriage, she wanted to get pregnant!

    It’s all about the money with Jason. He and his family tried to control Bethenny from the beginning and trying to keep control now. He wants the big apartment then let him have it and maintain it. Man up Jason pay for your attorney you could have ended this a long time ago and had the money in your pocket instead of the lawyer’s.
    Team Bethenny all the way!
