The former “Real Housewives” star and husband Jason Hoppy are in the process of divorce. It seems the judge is not a fan of Bethenny Frankel or her Instagram. In fact the Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Ellen Gesmer told the star “no more pajamas!” while in divorce court Thursday.
Pajamas and Instagram
The judge was speaking in regards to Frankle’s Instagram account. She had posted a questionable picture in July. The picture displayed the 43 year old star in her daughters Hello Kitty PJ’s with a ruffled top, shorts, and slippers. The caption read: “This is my daughter’s nightgown and PJ shorts. Think we’re ready to start sharing clothes yet?” It did not take long for the post to go viral. Many posted comments of criticism towards the mom.
Mayefsky, Frankel’s lawyer, explained that the post was “done as a joke”, but he did not disagree with the judge’s directive. The judge fired back explaining, “It’s not a joke. Her child is not a joke”, the judge further explained that the image will be on the internet for a long time and soon Frankel’s daughter will see the post herself.
Despite the judges concerns of Bethenny’s Instagram choices, it was decided that the couple will share custody of their daughter.
The couple also met in divorce court to place a value on eh assets that the couple will divide. It is estimated that Frankel is worth approximately $55 million. Along with being a star on “Real Housewives” she had other reality shows, her own talk show, and “Skinny Girl” a line of low calorie margaritas.
Most of Hoppy and Frankels relationship was displayed on television. During “The Housewives of New York” Hoppy courted Frankle then proposed. Their engagement, wedding planning, honeymoon, pregnancy, birth, and other important moments were all displayed on television. Bethenny felt the relationship hit a breaking point after her show, “Bethenny Ever After” and the tanking of her talk show. In 2012 Frankle informed her husband she wanted a divorce via letter. The two lived together for a year in Hudson after the infamous letter. Bethenny described this year as “brutal, horrendous, excruciating.” She explained that everything he did seemed to be in spite. “Every action during the day, it felt like, was being done to torture me. He would leave the house in shambles-dishes piled everywhere, garbage piled everywhere, He’d pee and poop and leave it in the toilet…he would turn the television on as loud as he could and then put the remote in his backpack and leave with it.”
She later moved out, and they are waiting for the divorce to finalize.
