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?

thinking he was recording her to expose lies that she has told or probably will tell the courts
you have to remember he knows her and her ways
and has a rough idea of what she's capable of
she wouldn't record him because it wouldn't provide any ammunition for the cuort case
she's the one who is the most irrationaly with a bitter streak not talking to her own family
and she has no idea the value of a family let alone the value of a father in a young daughter's life- similar to Halle Berry being clueless to the damage she'll do to her daughter by cutting her father out of her life
all terribly sad

I am sick to death of everyone making Jason out to be the bad guy in this divorce. Bethenny got what she wanted (a child) and now is ready to move on. This whole thing is just ridiculous on her part. If she really wants to move on, stop trying to financially ruin Jason.

Bethany built that empire by herself. He rode in in the end of that. He should be happy with another home for him and Brynn can visit back and forth.wasn't there a prenup? He was doing his own thing when they met. Everyone knows the money is from Skinny Girl. Bethany is Skinny Girl. Jason is a punk for putting her and the baby through this.
