Frankel wore a pair of white, furry boots and a leather jacket to brave the cold NYC weather. Radar Online snapped The Real Housewives of New York City star holding her daughter’s hand.

Jason Hoppy, Bryn’s father and Bethenny’s ex-husband, was charged on January 27 for stalking and harassing the Skinnygirl mogul.

Reports claimed that Hoppy attempted to start a fight with Frankel at their six-year-old daughter Bryn’s school.

A spokesman for the NYPD stated, “On Friday, Jan. 27, [Hoppy] approached [Frankel] and a friend at her child’s school at around 8:15 a.m. and tried to provoke a fight,” according to People.

“I will destroy you. You can get all the lawyers you want. You’ve been warned.”

Hoppy caused a scene at Bryn’s school. The 46-year-old allegedly told Bethenny Frankel’s boyfriend that “she’s pure evil. You’ve been warned. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.”

Seems shady

Frankel then contacted the police, saying that she feared for her safety.

Bethenny Frankel claimed that her ex-husband had been sending her “hundreds” of emails, phone calls, and FaceTime calls despite a cease and desist letter having been sent to him.

Hoppy, who starred on Bethenny Frankel’s RHONY spin-off series, Bethenny Getting Married and Bethenny Ever After, had apparently been reaching out to the reality star’s friends and business associates at Bravo.

Back in October of last year, Hoppy allegedly wrote to Frankel in an email saying that he would continue to contact her.

“Your definition of harassment is comical. I will continue to communicate with you as I see fit.”

Another email that Hoppy sent allegedly asked for a copy of her life insurance policy. Bethenny said that between November of last year and January 27, when he was arrested, Hoppy had sent her over 160 emails.

U can never be too… furry (& yes it's faux)

Bethenny Frankel’s attorney, Barry Zone, issued a statement on her behalf following his arrest.

“Ms. Frankel’s decision to report Mr. Hoppy’s abusive behavior followed years of systematic bullying, harassment, stalking and torment on an almost daily basis.”

Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy’s divorce was finalized in 2016 after four years of battling it out in court over their shared apartment and the custody of their daughter, Bryn.

Insiders said that Hoppy is determined to make a name for himself in reality TV. However, Bethenny Frankel has been a reality star on Bravo for years now and has her successful business, Skinnygirl, so it is not likely that Hoppy would be able to steal the spotlight from her.

“He [learned] everything from her. He now has her passion for public attention and wants his own reality show.”

Jason Hoppy’s arraignment was listed as a domestic violence case. A temporary order of protection was issued, and his bond was $2,000 cash, which was not posted.
