According to Radar, Bethenny Frankel’s ex-husband Jason Hoppy is currently doing the #getmoneybitch shuffle across the floors of Bethenny’s former dreamhouse, because a judge has ordered her to hand over $100,000 to him. Bethenny and Jason’s never-ending divorce drama is costing a ton of money, but court documents filed last week show that Jason had a “Help me, I’m poor” moment and a judge took pity on him. Apparently Jason makes a little over $100,000 a year as a drug company salesman (“Only $100,000” I whispered, as I squirted some Poverty’s Best™ ketchup-style sauce on a cracker and pretended it was a tapas-sized pizza), so the judge has ordered Bethenny to cover his attorney fees. Bethenny has until June 1st to pay Jason the $100,000 he owes his legal team. Radar says this is the second time Bethenny has paid for Jason’s lawyers.
But it doesn’t end there. On top of the $100,000 check Bethenny will slip in the mail to Jason’s attorneys, she also has been ordered to fork over $3,000 each month for temporary child support for their daughter Bryn, as well as 97% of their daughter’s $600-a-month school tuition and medical expenses.
And remember how I mentioned before that Jason was still living in their old apartment? The judge has ordered Bethenny to start paying $11,858.42 per month for “temporary maintenance“, which includes $1000 a month for utilities and $500 for housekeeping. Bethenny will only have to pay that money for 12 months or until they come to a decision on who gets the apartment. If you watch RHONY, then you know that Bethenny is currently “homeless“, aka she’s living in a hotel.
I might actually consider reading that self-help book Bethenny Frankel is holding in the picture above. I need to know how to avoid the type of relationship that ends with me backing a dump truck full of cash into my ex’s driveway. One, because I love money. Two, because I don’t have enough money to fill the back seat of a Power Wheels Jeep, let alone a dump truck.
