Bethenny Frankel
means business, even in divorce.  She wants Jason to pay child support and a lot more ... TMZ has learned.

TMZ broke the story ... Bethenny filed for divorce last week against Jason Hoppy.  Now we've learned ... Bethenny -- who is reportedly worth between $25 million and $55 million -- has filed legal docs asking for the following from Jason:

--- Child support ... retroactive from the date she filed for divorce
--  Medical, dental, optical, therapeutic, and orthodontic expenses for HER and her child
--  Life insurance that makes both her and the kid beneficiaries

She also wants Jason -- who made lots of money in real estate --  out of their marital residence for good.  Bethenny is asking for exclusive occupancy.

And there's more ... Bethenny wants primary physical custody of 2-year-old Bryn.

Bethenny also wants the judge to enforce their prenup dated March 23, 2010 ... signed 5 days before they got hitched.

A source connected with Bethenny tells TMZ ... "This is a preliminary step to move the process forward.   She wants to work this out privately and amicably.  All Bethenny cares about is that it works out the best way possible for Bryn."

He had to know that she came with mega-baggage. If you dance to the music, you have to pay to the piper. Aside from the child, I don't think this bitch deserves a red cent, but he had to know who he was donating his baby stuff to.

She's a fu$$ing nut she loves every stranger she meets & makes them family remember the nanny & the singing dancing baby's first church visit ? When poor Brine was passed around the Rosey ? Wow what a mom

I'm waiting for the obligatory "please respect our privacy during this difficult time". Even though very few people are interested in this divorce.

The only thing Bethenny cares about is Bethenny and money.
If she really wants things to be "amicable", then she shouldn't complicate things by asking for money from Jason (when she has more than he does) and asking for primary physical custody of their daughter.

Both parents should contribute to their children's upbringing no matter the income. However, it sounds like she is going to be ridiculous about it.

LMFAO, can a judge really order a man to buy life insurance and make his EX WIFE a beneficiary? If Jason were smart he'd agree, then he would get a mil policy and put his daughter as the beneficiary and then take another Policy out for 100 dollars and name her on it.

He should pay child support and provide medical, etc for the child. He should also have a life insurance policy for the kids sake, but he should not pay a dime for this greedy biotch!

This woman is the lowest of the low. I have no idea why Ellen supports her on her TV show either. Does Ellen have shares in he company or something?

I have lost all respect for Bethenny. It sure doesn't seem like she wants it to work out the best possible way for Bryn, more like she wants to stick it to Jason. She's loaded, why would she want/need him to pay for her health care? I agree he should pay some kind of child support, Bryn's health expenses and have life insurance naming her as beneficiary. Bethenny needs to STFU. I know I will never watch any show with her on it again. She's disgusting and greedy.
