Bethenny Frankel

It's Expensive to Divorce Bethenny

... For Bethenny

Bethenny Frankel's divorce has dragged on so freakin' long that now she has to fork over $100k just to cover her soon-to-be-ex husband's legal fees -- even though they've yet to agree on terms for a divorce settlement.

According to court docs ... Frankel has to immediately hand over what amounts to an advance payment to Jason Hoppy's attorney. The docs stipulate the $100,000 will be subtracted from whatever financial settlement Jason ends up getting from Bethenny ... presuming they ever hammer out a deal.

Frankel filed divorce docs in Jan. 2013 ... and they've been battling over money and custody issues ever since. 

Frankel sold the Skinnygirl brand for about $100 mil, so technically 100K is a drop in the bucket -- but since it's going to her ex's lawyer ... we doubt there's a smiley face on the check.

She used him, treated him like a doormat and then quickly wanted a divorce. Of course she should be footing the bill!!

I wish I could go around saying I am worth $100 mil and have people not only believe it, but publish it. Can you imagine the doors that would open? AMEX black would soon be in the mail....only, I am not really worth $100M, soooo.....Oh, wait a minute, neither is Bethenny.
Once again, TMZ doing the difficult research and editing so we don't have to. Not. Y'all can Google it faster than TMZ can edit their own names, but Bethenny as an investor and her partners, that put in waaaay more capital than she did, sold Skinny Girl for $100M. After IRS and NY taxes, she should be eating dogfood soon, which is very fitting for Bethenny, seeing as she looks like my cousin't chihuahua.
