Bethenny Frankel Suing Lawyers Over Messy Divorce

Real Housewives of New York City star Bethenny Frankel is claiming she got screwed over by her lawyers in her divorce from Jason Hoppy.

According to a lawsuit from 2011, Bethenny bought a Manhattan condo for $5 million. Jason Hoppy, her husband at the time, suggested she put the property in a trust. Frankel claims she wanted it held in her name alone, but went along with the trust idea and they had their lawyers draft the document.

Bethenny claims, after divorce papers were filed, she discovered the trust gave Jason a 50% interest in the condo, TMZ is reporting. This is what gave Jason the right to live in the apartment and not pay a penny in rent.

Frankel is claiming this is what made her divorce so messy and drag on for three years. She is now suing her lawyers for $2 million minimum.

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.
