DIVORCE WAR

Bethenny Frankel
's estranged husband has made it clear ... he's not going down without a fight in divorce court, because he's gunning for exactly the same spoils Bethenny wants from him.

TMZ has learned Jason Hoppy has filed his response to Bethenny's divorce petition, in which he's requesting PRIMARY CUSTODY of the couple's 2-year-old daughter. We broke the story, Bethenny also wants primary custody.

Jason also wants child support from Bethenny -- she wants the same from him.

Jason is asking for Bethenny to foot the bill for medical and dental insurance as well as related expenses for himself and daughter Bryn. In Bethenny's legal docs she asks that Jason pay for her medical and dental bills, as well as Bryn's.

Jason wants Bethenny to maintain life insurance on herself, making both Bryn and him beneficiaries. She wants him to maintain a life insurance policy for her benefit as well as Bryn's.

And last but not least ... Jason wants "exclusive use and occupancy of the marital residence."  Surprise -- Bethenny wants that too.

Ah, one last thing. He wants her to pay for his lawyer, accountant, etc. 

This one's not gonna end nicely.

Who said Marriage was based on Religion, It is nothing more than a business contract, Sometimes without the Contract.

the lawyers on both sides are run their accounts dry where they both wont be in a position to request what they want.. they will be stuck splitting what left when everythng is sold and lawyers paid.. good luck..especially with custody access visitation of child ..

The husband deserves at least something for sleeping with Skeletor.

Why do people get married, and the first problem they have, they get a divorce?
They are the same person before the marriage,
you just chose to ignore the red flags or not work through the issues before the marriage.
People should pay more attention before tying the knot.
And no, marriage will not solve problems already there.
Marrying for money or looks is just silly, there should be more to it than that because it gets old quick.

Why do I think he's asking for all of the same things for a reason...Seems Jason is going to be EXACTLY like Bethenny....And I dont blame him!! She doesnt need 90%to of what she is asking for!! She wounded him and now seems like she wants him to bllled to death...Bethenny, You eere LUCKY to have a mormal guy like Jason. He took your name and built a very successful business for you. I see Your Selfishness is at its best!! TEAM JASON!!

I think they should be forced to stay together
They obviously deserve each other

You can tell they're both vey vain
Because they look very similar
So thats what attracted them to each other
They saw themselves in the other

yuk, eww

My grandparents and parents are still together,
and I'm sure everything wasn't perfect all the way through.
But as kids, we didn't see any difference and still don't.
They take their vows seriously.......
in this day and age, just to be fair, prenups should be an option on both sides.........
so crazy..............

Neither of them is going to get anything special. Everything is going to get split down the middle. She might get primary custody if she doesn't flip out. She should have laid low and just asked for that. Now that she went after his money, he is going to go ape back on her.


He seems like a cold guy who never really loved her anyway. He is just going to do all he can to spite her for challenging him. I think she is a little bit mental and he knows it and tried to take advantage of it.


The ones who are going to make out are the lawyers who get to collect the fees on all of this fighting.
