Bethenny Frankel, Jason Hoppy

Dirty Tricks

Now Off-Limits

Bethenny Frankel and soon-to-be ex-hubby Jason Hoppy can't pull a Watergate on each other anymore, because a judge has now prohibited them from secretly recording each other ... and for good reason.

Sources connected to the former couple tell TMZ ... since their separation, Jason has secretly recorded Bethenny on both video and audio.  What's more ... we're told he also recorded their nanny and the Skinny Girl staff, working out of Bethenny's home-office.  And, we're told Jason has gotten into the emails of Bethenny and her staff.

Our sources say the recordings don't go both ways -- Bethenny has never recorded Jason.

TMZ has learned ... the judge has ordered both Jason and Bethenny NOT use tape recorders, cell phones or computers to record each other.  They're also prohibited from recording the nanny.  And they're prohibited from intercepting emails.

We've learned the judge ordered Bethenny and Jason to ante up any video or audio recordings by October 15.  That should be interesting.

Anyone miss Nixon?

I won't be surprised if Bethanny is suddenly more gracious in the divorce proceedings moving forward. Something tells me Jason got some dirt on her and gleefully agreed to not leak it or use it in exchange for her starting to act like a human being about the divorce (aka not asking for ridiculous spousal support when she makes a ton of money on her own).

He doesn't need any new recordings. Simply watch Bravo re-runs and see what a whack job she is.

Dumbest things Hoppy ever did - knocking up that scrawny biotch, then marrying her. Bet he's sorry now.

Wow, I always felt sorry for him having to put up with her crazy @ss. Jason sounds like one of those dangerous ex-husbands on Who The Bleep Did I Marry? Bethenny just seemed annoying as f*ck, but not crazy. Poor Bryn.

Let her go, Jason. You were doing okay, before you married her...and you really had very little to do with her success. Very little.

OMG, OMG, OH MY GOD! I was 15 when I met my husband at the mall in the spring of 1984; we've been together ever since.

I was a Junior in HS, he was a Senior at another school. We married in 1990; married 23 yrs.

I AM CONVINCED that it is CHILDREN that RUIN a marriage that was never meant to have children.
That and famewhores that never loved their husband to begin with.
