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?

She has the trashiest show on t.v. I can't even make myself watch it, and I tried. Jason's way too good for her.

Tried to watch her show but I can't get through it. It's the trashiest ME ME ME vapidness on tv and is just a vehicle for Bethenny to constantly take off her clothes to expose her Olive Oyll figure.

Hoppy is a fruitcake, and he is the one that drove Bethany crazy. What a douche to record people behind their backs!

I'm not sure where she even came from but I can't stand her. Her eyes are dead.

I'm not buying this story at all. It sounds more like something she would do. She is f.r.e.a.k.y. looking, that has nothing to do with this, she just does.

So what if he's recording her , she does nothing but trash Jason on her show and all the scorned women praise her for that. She doesn't deserve to have him or his daughter. She was raised heartless and she'll always be heartless .

Her mother was right. This is one unhappy, nut of a women. Damaged. Hoppy was the best thing that could have ever happened to her. Instead of grasping that, she is pursueing the elusive brass ring. On a good note, Hoppy can now look forward to a relationship with a "normal" woman.
