Bethenny Frankel Granted Restraining Order Against Ex-Husband Jason Hoppy After His Arrest

Jason Hoppy was arrested for allegedly stalking his ex-wife, Real Housewives of New York City star Bethenny Frankel. As we previously reported, Hoppy was arrested after he confronted Frankel at their daughter’s school, allegedly saying, “I will destroy you.”

Now, Frankel has been issued a restraining order against her ex, TMZ reports. The order requires Hoppy to stay clear of Bethenny’s home, Bethenny’s school, and place of business. It also requires Jason to have no communication with Bethenny.

The only exception for Hoppy is if a judge allows him access at the various locations to facilitate the custody arrangement.

Jason is also not permitted to have any “third party contact.” Although the order does not specify the identity of third parties, it’s assumed it includes Bethenny’s boyfriend, Dennis Shields, who was with Bethenny when Jason got arrested.

The restraining order will be in effect for 6 months.

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
