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.

Yup, whenever one party files for PRIMARY physical custody, things start to get ugly. It's a self-consumed move, unless it is for the true welfare of the child (see Britney, Kevin Federline).

He couldn't handle her business success. Her booze line made them millions, and since then, he hasn't been the $$ earner, so his ego took a hit. Now he's going after her ego. Unfortunately, their kid is the only one who will really pay. I wish they'd have tried harder. So easy to give up...

Hey Jason you have a huge crowd standing behind you! Stand up for your daughter because everyone would agree she would be better off raised by you who she would see each day....Bethenny is so busy recruiting another husband, mixing ****tails and looking in the mirror she will turn toxic if she hasn't already. Oh and Bethenny the two guys on your side are paid to be there. You dug this hole.

BRAVO JASON!!! Submit every episode from each of her crappy shows into evidence as proof that she is an unfit mother. SELF-centered, SELF-motivated, SELF-serving and SELFISH as hell, this sorry excuse for a mother will turn Bryn into the same crazy-ass witch that she is. Let's go to the videotape to bury this b!tch in court.
