Jason Hoppy’s Lawyer Speaks Out

RadarOnline is reporting that Bethenny Frankel is going to have to see her ex-Jason Hoppy in court.

After sending hundreds of text messages, phone calls and FaceTime calls, along with allegedly screaming at Bethenny in front of their daughter’s school saying, “I will destroy you. You can get all the lawyers you want. You’ve been warned,” Jason Hoppy was arrested for stalking and harassment on January 27th.

“These are unjustified & false charges,” an insider close to Hoppy revealed to the site. “Whatever may have happened, whatever communications between the two of them, none of it possibly rises to the level of a criminal case.”

“Whatever happened between the two of them certainly did not justify the criminal charges,” the insider explained. “They are false and unjustified. This could have something to do with custody of Bryn. One thing it isn’t is a basis of criminal charges.”

Hoppy’s lawyer even had something to say. “There are no words to express how saddened Mr. Hoppy is over his ex-wife’s unjustified actions,” Hoppy’s lawyer Robert Gottlieb told Radar exclusively. “His only concern in the past and now is his daughter and we intend to vigorously fight these false charges. We will do our talking now in the courtroom.”“There are no words to express how saddened Mr. Hoppy is over his ex-wife’s unjustified actions,” Hoppy’s lawyer Robert Gottlieb told Radar. “His only concern in the past and now is his daughter and we intend to vigorously fight these false charges. We will do our talking now in the courtroom.”

The court date for Hoppy is set for March 13th.

There are two sides to every story. I believe the child, Bryn, is at the center of all of this. Using the child as a pawn is not right. Threats are not right. I don’t know who started all of this. I believe the father has a right to be with the child as well as the mother when both parents want to parent the child. I do hope neither parent badmouths the other to the child as well. The little girl deserves a mom and a dad in her life as well as grandparents who love her IMO.


You are so right, Sandy. That’s all I could think about when reading this article. It’s all disgusting and the child is not being put first. Since this divorce case is also being prosecuted out in the public, this child will grown up one day and read all this! It is very sad. Divorce is ugly but when children are involved, the parties MUST put the children first and their hatred aside 🙁 🙁

What gets me is that it all goes back to money – WTF – why does everyone try to get a free ride off someone else – I’d be happy if someone gave me the kind of money these people get in settlements – seriously – and more importantly is it really worth the hassle to fight someone when you already have more than enough for the rest of your life – to have the media reporting every move you make and worst of all – to drag your child into it – shame on every last stinking one of… Read more »

I don’t know the whole story…. but I don’t for a minute think B is a innocent party. She has a mouth to beat all mouths… so I can only imagine.

Team Jason

If you haven’t noticed Bethany is emotionally unstable! She is always melting down , crying and lashing out at every single housewife for some reason or another! Her OWN mother says she’s a liar and a manipulator! She USED Jason Hoppy and threw him away! He is a decent, good, kind and NORMAL human being! She hates that! She hates that she has to SHARE her daughter and her financial success because he both supported her financially and emotionally while she was married to him and building her fortune! It’s the price you paid while USING this poor guy! You… Read more »
Not a Housewife & Neither RU
sounds like you know their situation intimately…either you’re a troll, or one of Jason’s angry family members in ohio, either way, I doubt you knew Bethany during childhood so tuck in the disdain a little. there’s three sides to every story and NO ONE is perfect not even Jason. I’m baffled at how Bethany could have USED Jason, but I’ll let you have that conspiracy theory girl. what I do know is that you can’t get criminal charges on someone in NYC based on someone’s word, you have to have actual evidence and that evidence has to be deemed threatening,… Read more »

The great thing about America is we re both entitled to our opinions!?No I’m not related to Hoppy or Frankel and for that matter, how can I know you don’t WORK for her (she doesn’t have any relatives or friends)! So, my point is: Do you see how pointless those type of assumptions are..just because my opinion doesn’t align with yours! You are obviously Team Bethanny and I’m Team Jason. Celebrate the differing opinions! The troll thing..really funny! viva la difference!!

I agree. Viva la difference! We are all entitled to our opinions, and it is not right for some to attack. We just see things from a different perspective. I am not Team Bethenny or Team Jason, though many will say I am Team Jason. I know no one is perfect, and I have never been a Bethenny fan though I find her very funny at times. I am Team Bryn with this one more than anything, and I wish more parents would think of the child first and not themselves. If your read my posts, I have been more… Read more »
I completely agree with you! Bryn is the REAL victim! Every child deserves TWO loving parents who try to be amicable for their child’s sake! I don’t judge Bethany as much as I can see “Brittany’s brokenness”! She’s wounded and wounded people wound others..they sort of get hung up in a developmental time warp at the age where the damage occurred (by way of explanation). The most basic need every human being has is to be loved”! You can’t move on until healing takes place. Truly Jason is not her problem..its her woundedness! I think Jason’s issue is “he needs… Read more »

Who is Brittany?

I tried to reply to you, Sandy, but if ever I accidentally hit some wrong key, my reply goes away, then I can retrieve it by hitting reply again, but it won’t post. It says “Disqus has an error” and the screen goes to some old movie, has that happened to anyone else? Anyway, HI. I agree that Bryn comes first. Ironically I was just watching “Bethenny Gets Married?” yesterday while I was finishing an art project and doing dishes. In that first season of the 3, they laugh a lot and all seems wonderful. When anyone emails or texts… Read more »
I don’t remember the spinoff that way. I remember her therapist on the sailing trip and thought that was quite strange. I don’t believe Bethenny ever wanted marriage. As for the grandparents seeing Bryn, I was for it. They lost a son, Brian. Bryn was named after him. They had one grandchild and lived in another state. They should have a chance to see the child. I do not know the specifics. I know Bethenny does not need a man, and she would rather do it all alone, and she and Jason were not a match made in heaven. Also,… Read more »
I’m so with you on this Sandy. My impression of the spin off, before she had Bryn, she was very reluctant to visit his parents and she said it was because she didn’t know how to be with family because she hadn’t had one. When the baby was born she fought Jason about the parents/mother being involved and helping and I thought that too was so telling about her insecurities. She’s very freighted of that kind of family love, help and kindness. She doesn’t know how to handle it when it comes at her. Not her fault. As far as… Read more »
He shouldn’t have been outside Bryn’s school waiting for her. Period. To say to Dennis “she is evil” makes HIM evil, IMO. Bryn will see that. Whether she feels like she should have that right, she has done what was ordered of her by the court all along. He is the one who broke the rules. Once a person begins threatening their ex-wife and her boyfriend, the rules change. The DA and New York police have a lot to do. Jason wouldn’t have been arrested on her word alone. There were other witnesses, and she no doubt had to turn… Read more »

I think it was Bethenny that started this dog and pony show. She’s the one that is high strung. He’s always shown himself to us to be the calm one. There’s no reason to think the two have exchanged their stripes. I also think her account of her childhood would leave one to believe she hasn’t had a stable family influence to draw from. I think she feels that child is hers and she should just be able to move on without including Jason in her daughter’s life.

Obviously there are many posts here some for BF and the other for JH. We do know for sure that the Apartment BETHANY paid for (every dime) Jason was able to manipulate the situation and lie his way into getting to stay in the apartment and BF had to move out. WHY? He got satisfaction out of BF having to pay for EVERYTHING while he was living there. She paid the mortgage and he paid nothing WHY? He quit his job and lived off BF for years. He is not a man because men actually stand up and act accordingly… Read more »
I have never once read, heard or had a link to any article where Bethenny says anything bad about Jason. I mean she says it was a mistake. That neither of them could change, but I have never once heard her bashing him. They got engaged, ( which was already in talks, they had committed to each other BEFORE the pregnancy ) although many like to say that is not factual. In one year, she got engaged, pregnant, remember the baby is INSIDE the WOMAN. Then she became partners with Jim Beam, and became super wealthy all in less than… Read more »
