Bethenny Frankel

Hubby Declares


1/24/2013 6:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

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.

this woman deserves to live in a pile of her own vomit.... binge it up, binge it up ... .

look at her face: a skull with skin stretched over the top of it.

she wreaks with greed issues , jealousy issues, mommy and daddy issues, eating issues, and power issues = nightmare emotional disaster.. damaged goods.

her breasts ( her only appeal) have lost any appeal..

she disgusting human trash... bad looking breasts.. a deteriorated face.. and a sub par body... no man cares about money, she is damaged goods.. unfit for any sane man.

notice how she wanted the lifestyle of fame ... karma is a b1tch, ... you wretched eating disordered mental case

Unfortunately, being a crazy bizzatch is not against the law and he'll have an uphill battle trying to convince the court to give him custody unless he pulls out all the stops and tells everything about this heartless screw. She is a complete user and could care less about anything except herself.

This woman comes across as a malnourished, narcissistic, miserable, selfish, greedy bitch. I believe she just wanted a child and he was the unlucky dude. She's worth millions, why would she drag out the divorce for these silly material things? She never seemed happy by anything he did for her. Probably if he had also become a millionaire...who knows. At least he'll make another woman happy. Can't say the same for skeletor...

Watch last season where her mother talks to star magazine. Oooohhh mommy dearest was exactly correct. It will end in divorce because she is all about fame, power and control. All those words came true.

Glad Jason isn't being a wimp and asking for the same equal rights. His little girl looks just like him.

She should have stayed single and childless. What a wacko.

Games the rich and powerful woman plays. Come on! Jason deserves what he is asking for, other than possibly sharing custody. Seems Jason is the most stable and most able to be around for the child.

Go for it, Jason. Think she is a spoiled rich little whinner. Hope he gets everything he asks for. I would ask for some of her money for alimony too!

As much as she hates her Mom, she has become her. I feel sorry for Bryn, she doesnt have a chance for a normal life. I hope Jason gets custody.

This comes as no surprise. That is surprising is he isn't seeking alimony. He was a husband for hire from the get go. He figured he would hang with her for the money and fame and ditched the shrew as soon as the show ended. He's no better than the horrible shrew he married and fathered a child with?
