Jason Hoppy Stalking Case With Bethenny Will Go To Trial This Summer

Jason Hoppy and Bethenny Frankel were back in court on Thursday and Hoppy’s stalking case will proceed until summer we can reveal.

In a Manhattan court hearing Thursday, Bethenny Frankel’s ex-husband faced the judge in charges he repeatedly harassed and tormented Frankel via emails, calls and even face-to-face confrontations.

After he rejected a plea deal last month, Hoppy, 44, will return to court for a trial on June 27.

Frankel’s restraining order against the father of her daughter Bryn, 6, will also remain in effect.

“There is a full stay away order of protection… unless you have a written order from family court. Do you understand?” Judge Abena Darkeh asked Jason.

“Yes,” he answered.

Stay tuned…

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.

    This man need psychiatric help. He has become a millionaire from the marriage. He has shared custody of his daughter. What more does he want.?

    • Thank You, Bee. He did maybe 1/40th of the work, and got 1/4 of the money, lived in HER FIRST HOME for the 4 years of the divorce, he himself asked for sole custody so his mommy
      could raise Bryn, and she’s the one who has a problem? That was one of the reasons the divorce was so lengthy, from what I understand, although it is almost impossible to know the confidential events of the actual divorce proceedings. She paid for everything, his legal bills, his household bills, electric and gas etc., & the mortgage on that apartment, PLUS $12,000.00 a month in spousal support. He’s the greedy one, she’s the one who makes the money and had the passion and drive to make sure her daughter wasn’t raised in the poverty/winnings dichotomy of her upbringing. I know she does not raise her daughter with the hatred and neglect she was raised with. She loves her little girl more than life, wanted her for a long time and shows her that she is the most important person in Bethenny’s life. Does she have emotional challenges, of course. None of us are perfect, all parents make mistakes. If we didn’t, it would make our children believe that perfection was expected. When we make a mistake, we tell our children we are sorry, that we made a mistake and to please forgive us. Then they have the ability to learn that no one is perfect, not even Mama and Daddy, and they are also not expected to be so either.
      Apparently everyone forgot that there were more people who saw the behavior than just Bethenny. And, it wasn’t only one time, or it wouldn’t be being prosecuted. When 30 texts a day are “normal behavior” then normal takes on an entirely different definition. When he won’t answer his phone 5-7 times in a row when Bethenny calls at the court appointed times, that’s abusive to Bryn. He’s always been a mama’s boy, and she tried a lot harder than he did to keep that marriage together. He wanted her to be a different person, he wanted her to become like him, dependent on HIS parents for their sole emotional and parenting support, instead of looking to your SPOUSE for that. Naturally anyone who has great parents would want to keep them in the life of your child, but not at the expense of the marriage & the Mother of that child.

      I think he wants to air out their laundry, Aunt Bee. By the way, Aunt Bee, speaking of child custody have you tuned back in to this season of Southern Charm? It’s so sad how Katherine has fallen and the children have been taken away. Hers must be an incredibly dire situation with the drugs, and even her former protectors have left her to her own devices (like K.Cooper Ray) but I still feel for her and those gorgeous babies. I am also absolutely appalled that Thomas keeps those babies in the plantation guesthouse to be raised by their nannies because in his own words- he doesn’t want them to mess up his $50,000 rugs in the Main House. Ugh.

    Any person who wants sole custody of a child if there is no abuse involved gives cause for the other parent to want to rebel. ” Stalking” is just plain wrong. Seeing your own child is not wrong.
    If they share custody, then it should be done with the child’s best interest at heart ehenever they need to discuss her or run into each other for her sake. Yet, with a full order of protection against Jason, that would mean he cannot even see his daughter if she were in a school play or the like, if Bethenny was in attendance. It restricts his child from her father even more, and it has to be difficult.
    In all of this, I feel sorry for Bryn most of all. I cannot imagine what it must be like for her. Her mother is so high strung, and her father is having a very hard time of this as well and losing it, and the child is in the middle of it all. I believe the child needs both parents, but they have to stop fighting and get along for her sake.

    We know that Jason has rejected a plea deal and now reports say he smiled at his attorney on Wednesday morning when the Judge moved the case forward to June 28th for trial.
    Rumor is they have subpoenaed witnesses to testify, under oath, regarding Bethenny’s lies and games concerning Bryn. Although Jason says absolutely nothing to the press, he has been reported to have written in one of the emails to Bethenny, sent August 2016, “Despite your games. I’ll never let you do to me what your mother did to your father. I’ll never go away.” People around Bobby Frankel have claimed for years it was Bethenny’s mother that kept him from seeing his daughter and it is highly probable Bethenny is attempting to repeat that pattern.
    We will just have to wait and see how this goes in June.

      I agree.

    Bethenny has never come to terms with her childhood, and I think it’s now tainting her daughter’s life. There’s something about abused or neglected kids that makes them very likely to seek the same angst and instability they came from. She wants to parent her child without any interference from the father, and I don’t think it’s because he’s the crazy guy she makes him out to be. It’s not right that she puts this burden on her child. But Id bet the farm she’s replicating her own mother’s hateful behavior.

    The fact that he wants to go to trial after being offered an easy plea deal makes me think there is much more to this story. I think Bethenny knows how to work the press, including when to say “I can’t talk about it”. Bethenny is so shady and abusive towards people I can’t wait to see the trial. Too bad Andy Cohen hasn’t found a way to make money off of it 🙂
    I hope one of the cable channels carries the entire case!

    two sides to every story…. good for Jason to not take a plea deal.
