Jason Hoppy – Bethenny Frankel’s Husband & Divorce

Jason Hoppy - Bethenny Frankel's Husband

Jason Hoppy is the estranged husband of RHONY star Bethenny Frankel. The two met before her three-year hiatus on the show, one night at "da club" as Frankel put it in her wedding vows to him. We watched as the two got engaged and got pregnant with their adorable daughter Bryn on the show. Then, Frankel branched off to have her own reality shows with Hoppy, who appeared to be a very sweet, supportive and level-headed partner for Frankel. With the immense success that came to Frankel in their short marriage, the success clearly affected their relationship and Hoppy left his job as a pharmaceutical salesman to join Frankel's business. Unfortunately, having a wife who was so much more successful didn't seem to have a favorable affect on Hoppy, who seemed to unravel on their reality show. Sadly, the two decided to end their marriage after Frankel had worked so hard to design and build a beautiful, luxury home for them in Manhattan. Neither party wanted to leave the apartment and Frankel testified that Hoppy made her life such hell while living together that she had no other choice but to move out. The two have been in the process of getting a divorce for almost two years and Frankel appears tired out from it all. We can't imagine the legal bills. When Frankel gave a televised interview with Andy Cohen, she talked a bit about her divorce, but was very vague and placed no blame on anyone, but did say that money and success were a problem. In response, Radar Online reported that Hoppy jumped to explore his legal options in regards to her interview. Frankel says she is currently single, but after her divorce, she was romantically linked to socialite Michael A. Cerussi III as E! News reported. When Frankel testified about living with Hoppy in the beginning of their divorce, she stated that: Every action during the day, it felt like, was being done to torture me. He would leave the house in shambles — dishes piled everywhere, garbage piled everywhere. He’d pee and poop and leave it in the toilet ... He would turn the television on as loud as he could and then put the remote in his backpack and leave with it. Frankel said that her husband's reaction to her wanting a divorce was this: He said, ‘You’re dead to me. I want nothing to do with you. You think I want to be with you on the holidays? You’re a piece of s--t. You’re garbage. You have no idea what I’ve got on you.' Frankel said he became very verbally abusive, telling her: Is this what 43 looks like? You’re disgusting. You’re gross. Hoppy and Frankel are still trying to settle their issues in the divorce and with a new season of RHONY underway, there are sure to be more.

Jason needs to man up and support himself. He was a gold digger. It’s a shame. His parents seemed like such nice people. They must be humiliated by their son’s actions. Poor Bryn. She will never be proud to call him dad.
