Bethenny Frankel, Jason Hoppy

Dirty Tricks

Now Off-Limits

9/19/2013 4:55 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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?

Jason is just a bitchy ass, who need's to be addressing the long standing rumors that he likes the boys. When you stoop to that behavior you are beyond insecure and shallow, unless she's a crack head and you need proof.

When it's all over Jason should thank his lucky stars that he survived life with this vampire. Any man unfortunate enough to get castrated by Bethenny has my deepest sympathy.

Jason has to count his blessing in a lot of ways. One of them is that he had never met Michael Jackson while he was under 15. Otherwise he would have been invited to his bed (and of course molested)!!!

Talking about MJ. Hey, good news MJ fans, Conrad Murray is coming out of jail in just 30 days.
Are you ready to celebrate? After all, he was the good doctor who had mercy on MJ and provided him many restful nights of sleep, and let him rest in peace!!!

Kudos to him for getting her verbal abuse on tape. The entire "Bethenny" show on Bravo could be entered into evidence to show that life with this she-devil is a unique torture. Remember when she cut his balls off because he had the nerve to give her a birthday party?

Why don't these 2 just grow the hell up and get along for the sake of their daughter. Share her and love her. Yes Bethany, the father should have rights to raise her as much as you do, so joint custody is the best for the child!!! Grow the hell up, you two! Your child is going to be damaged because of this silliness!!!!!!

Bethany saying no to cameras is like Mama June saying no to ding-dongs.

God, break-ups are so $%#& messy, ugly and extremely expensive. Does it really matter the whys, whats, hows, etc., Bethenny & Jason have a daughter together, she's very young, and is the ONLY thing that's non-negotiable. Moving forward with grace, patience, poise and a lot of support is required when you have children & sadly going through divorce.

Bethenny's own mother and father hated her guts. That says a lot about her character.

Are you guys serious?? He was a total dick towards her when they were alone, and she finaly caved. YES, bethenny has issues, but that doesn't mean that all his bad behavior is forgiven and forgotten.
I'm really happy for her for filing for divorce, she could do better.

Bethenny never recorded Jason because she is not smart enough to know how to do it. I'll bet Jason got some interesting tapes.

Bottom line - the raving, crying, screaming, neurotic mess that everyone saw on the show was... not Jason!

She is a clinical case study of a typical borderline personality disorder. She really needs help, always did.
