Jason Hoppy and his ex-wife, “Real Housewives of New York” star, Bethenny Frankel back to court nearly a year after their long divorce process was finally settled.
According to Page Six, the exes will appear in a New York family court on December 8, 2021, for a hearing over the custody of their 11-year-old daughter Bryn.
The couple has been feuding ever since their split in December 2012. The pair were in and out of court for years where it was revealed Jason had been bad-mouthing Bethenny to their daughter in recorded phone calls, according to Page Six.
“I don’t know why mommy’s making it so difficult. I don’t know if she’s recording,” Jason told Brynn in 2019 according to the outlet. “You’ll be with daddy soon, that’s all I can control. I’ll try to call you later. I hope mommy will let me talk to you.”
Jason was also arrested and charged with harassment in January 2017 after Jason showed up at Bryn’s school to “provoke a fight,” People reported at the time.
“The complainant said [Jason] had sent numerous emails and FaceTime calls numbering in the hundreds after a cease and desist letter was sent on Nov. 22, 2016,” said an NYPD spokesperson according to the outlet. “On Friday, Jan. 27, [Jason] approached [Bethenny] and a friend at her child’s school at around 8:15 a.m. and tried to provoke a fight. He said, ‘I will destroy you, you can get all the lawyers you want, you’ve been warned.’“
But it wasn’t just bad behavior on Jason’s side. Bethenny admitted to calling Jason “white trash” when she discovered an “investor” was bankrolling the divorce. She also admitted to throwing water on him, according to Page Six.
After More Than 8 Years Jason & Bethenny’s Divorce Was Finalized in January 2021
Bethenny and Jason’s tumultuous relationship was captured on camera for viewers all over the world.
According to US Weekly, who prepared a timeline of the formerly married duo, they first met in late 2008. Jason proposed 11 months later on season 3 of “Real Housewives of New York.” They were married on TV in March 2010 and Bethenny gave birth to Bryn in May of the same year.
The couple shared their lives with fans for three seasons on their spin-off show, “Bethenny Ever After” before splitting in 2012.
“Until something stops, you don’t realize how traumatic and damaging it is,” Bethenny said according to US Weekly. “When that person is arrested, you’re sleeping better, you’re not stressed. You’re physically, more psychological healthy. You’re not a wreck all the time. It’s like you can have a slightly normal life and you’re more connected with Bryn because you’re not in a panic about what will happen with the emails.”
According to US Weekly, Jason and Bethenny were officially divorced on January 20, 2021. The details of the custody of Bryn were not revealed but fans noticed that, as of late, Bethenny has been posting more photos and videos with her daughter.

“I feel like we got ripped off for years not being able to see you in your best form: Mom mode. Bryn is beautiful and yall are too cute together,” another fan wrote on a September 7, 2021, Instagram post.
