Jason Hoppy Offers To Share Custody With Bethenny Frankel, Bethenny Refuses!


Bethenny Frankel is going through a nasty custody battle with her estranged husband, Jason Hoppy, but RadarOnline reports Jason is willing to share custody of the couple’s 2 year-old daughter, Bryn, but Bethenny is still fighting for full custody because she wants to raise Bryn and call all the shots.

“Jason has come a long way since he filed for divorce and requested sole custody of Bryn, just as Bethenny did when she initially filed. Jason doesn’t want to cut Bethenny out of his daughter’s life, and he recognizes that Bryn needs her mommy. Jason is agreeable to joint custody of Bryn, but Bethenny is absolutely balking. She wants sole custody of Bryn, period. No compromises. It makes no sense because Jason is a very active father and plans to be a huge part of his daughter’s life,” a source tells Radar.

Bethenny is “absolutely flummoxed that her lawyer, Allan Mayefsky, who successfully brokered Katie Holmes sole custody deal of daughter, Suri, with Tom Cruise, has been unable to get the same results so far in her case. Bethenny expects the same result in her case, but Jason will fight her on it,” the insider reveals.

  1. Bethenny was fun and I liked her on RHNY, but she’s really screwed up here. He’s a good dad, and she’s just being punitive not just to him but her daughter. Her attorney should be advising her that this makes her look like a crappy mom to the judge. The court doesn’t care whether her career would be better served in Timbutu or whether she’d like to forget she ever agreed to marry this man. It cares about the best interest of the child, and the best interest of the child is to have both parents available to her. I expected better from Bethenny.

    1. Well before you judge her, why don’t you judge the article in itself. It is absolutely not true that Bethenny is refusing to share custody and wants sole custody, it can’t be truth because Bethenny has never filed for sole custody and neither has Jason, they both have requested primary custody, which is completely diferent as both parents can share custody but one of them is named the primary parent for tax purposes and legal residence.
      From that POV, I think the article in itself is BS because it starts with the premise of a lie.

      1. If you’re right I retract some of my judgment of Bethany over this. I understand very well the difference between primary and full custody. But I was responding to the article that was written, not writing my own. With that said, do you happen to know whether (as reported) she’s trying to move her daughter to Los Angeles, away from her father? Because that was the point of everything I said. Parents have a moral duty to make their child/children available to both parents, even though they can’t make their marriage work. Most especially when it’s not a financial hardship, which of course isn’t true in this case.

  2. This kind of reveals that Bethany is pitting HERSELF before her daughter. What a selfish,lsick BIOTCH. This is proof she doesn’t have the child’s best intetest at heart. Good luck with that, CRAZY, never happen.

  3. Bethenny has enough money to stay off TV and raise her child out of her office, she cannot keep her face off the TV or magazines. Jason stable and from a good family want’s to raise his daughter not on TV, just like a regular child.

    I hope he get’s full custody.

    1. He would never get full custody and he hasn’t requested that either, neither has Bethenny. yes, Bethenny has enough money because she has worked her a&* off but the point here are the double standards of our society, if a guy would had made a financial magistral move like Bethenny did with her cocktails, would you be asking him to just give all up and quit? so why ask Bethenny to do that, she works from her house, Jason works a regular job, if anything Bethenny has more time to raise Bryn than Jason.

    1. I know if I had one daughter, I would be damned if I am going to give her uo without a fight, in this case even if the judge awards primary custody to one of them, the fact is that both still will be in her life.
      Gossip rags take advantage of the fact that most people do not know the difference between full/sole custody and primary custody to imply that Bethenny wants to eliminate Jason from Bryn’s life.
      Primary custody could give them as split time as 51-49% with the one with 51% being name as the primary parent and the other one sharing almost half of the time.

  4. I hope Jason continues his fight because he is a good, BALANCED, father. Bethanny is hysterical. She did not receive good parenting and as I see her, she is lousy with relationships. I kind of liked her while she was happily married with Jason, she acted more human, she even showed she had a heart. But she is back to her tormented, dark self. Poor her.

  5. bethenny bethenny bethenny STOP IT. this doesnt make you look good at all hunnie its about compromise i can see that both of you would be great parents and providers SO DUAL PARENT and stop the nonsense. she acts as if he cheated on her and beat her up like cut it out and let the man take care of his child as you would love to aswell
