RHONY's Bethenny Frankel reveals she's STILL married to Jason Hoppy eight years after split as custody battle rages on
REAL Housewives of New York City alum Bethenny Frankel revealed on Watch What Happens Live she's STILL married to Jason Hoppy.
The exes are apparently still in the midst of a custody battle eight years after they split.
Andy asked Bethenny: "Are you and Paul talking marriage?"
Bethenny shockingly replied: "I'm still married…Crickets again! And scene. And we're back. And we're walking."
Bethenny and Jason Pharmaceutical executive Jason Hoppy filed for divorce in 2013 after three years of marriage.
She's been dating Paul, who is in the real estate and movie industry, since 2018, following the death of her on-again-off-again boyfriend, Dennis Shields.
Jason's matrimonial attorney Robert Wallack told The New York Post last year: “Jason and Bethenny are still technically married.
“While Jason has been pushing for years to have the judge sign the divorce judgment, Bethenny’s lawyers have objected.”
Manhattan Judge Michael Katz, who is overseeing the couple's divorce, told the outlet: “This issue has been addressed in open court on the record.
“It’s true that no judgment has been issued. It is not true that one side has objected.
“The judgment was never issued because an order of protection was issued by the Criminal Court which impacted the previously agreed to joint custody arrangement and Frankel subsequently brought an application to modify the agreement.”
Bethenny received an order of protection after Jason was charged with harassing and stalking her in 2017.
He accepted a plea deal, requiring him to keep away from Bethenny for six months in order to dismiss the charges.
Andy also asked Bethenny if she would ever consider returning to RHONY after quitting after last August.
She said: "If you get my gate code, and there's a Brink's truck full of a lot of cash, you know. It's all about the Benjamins, baby!
"I don't know. Who knows! I have a different career now as a result of not being on…I'm happy. I had a good run!"
Bethenny's new podcast, Just B with Bethenny Frankel, is set to debut next week.
She announced the podcast in July posting on Instagram: "THIS JUST IN: The B is BACK and I am going to #MENTIONITALL on my new PODCAST coming soon…
"#JUSTBwithBethennyFrankel will be an unfiltered, polarizing conversation with self-made moguls who have started from the bottom and are here.
"These fearless game changers will engage in interesting conversations about the unconventional journey to success."
