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.

She reminds me of Kim Kardashian. She used Jason to get where she needed to go. I hope the judge see's this and awards him everything he is seeking. Her mother was right, she will never be happy and will always put money before anything else. She went "Hollywood", who didn't see that coming..................

I have watched Bethenny since RHONY. I was rooting for her and Jason! I felt like he was a Total d*** a lot of the time. He has no motivation. He never had a job. Bethenny kept trying to get him to work for her just so had something to do because he no passion or drive. He would say he just didn't know what he really wanted to do! He lived off her. He resented her because she was passionate and successful. Sure she could be harsh and brutally honest but he knew that when they got married. Also he blamed every fight on her because he would say you came from a bad family and mine was good, you don't know better. You are broken, I'm not. I felt like he tried to make her feel bad about herself all the time. His parents did want to much time! When your newleyweds your in laws should not come over for the weekend every week! They expected that. I think Jason is a douche that hopes every one sides with him because Bethenny us so mean. He deserves nothing. He contributed a whole lot of nothing to her business. Grow some balls and get a real job Jason. You are not the victim.

I have no sympathy for these idiots in divorce wars. 1st off, take some time to get to know the person you are supposed to be spending the REST OF YOUR LIFE WITH, 2nd try working it out for more than a GD millisecond. People are *******s.

Her talk show won't even make it a full season now since her image is in the tank. We can at least be thankful for that.

You know Bethenny is a hot mess if Jason is asking for primary custody of the child. Guess those rumors about her bullimia and sleeping with a billionaire while still married to Jason may be true after all.

Stop LYING to try to boost Bitchenny's rapidly disintegrating public image. Jason has NEVER left his job as a sales rep. And so what if he doesn't make as much money as The Bitch? This may come as a shock to you and her other handful of brain-dead worshipers, but some people actually put love of family (his child, his parents) ahead of a constant quest for the spotlight and the almighty dollar. He is the same decent man he was when he married The Bitch, and anyone with half a brain can see that. TAKE YOUR CHILD JASON, and take take a big chunk of The Bitch's money while you're at it. You deserve it.

2 attorneys are going to become rich from this divorce. Bryn will be the loser if these 2 do not GROW UP!! Bryn was the most mature of the 3 in the family. Jason is a mama's boy and Bethenny is still mad about what she perceives as her horrible childhood.

Glad he's going for custody, anyone as driven and ego centric as Bethenny Frankel, sure doesn't have time for a child. And what's this rich, female entrepreneur doing asking her husband for support? NEWSFLASH, if you're making the dough, expect to part with a few ducats for the wellbeing of your child and her primary emotional/parental support person and it doesn't matter whether you're the man or woman making the dough!!.
