'Real Housewives' Ex Jason Hoppy Is Facing More Charges After Asking Judge To Toss Skinnygirl Case

Amy Feinstein

Real Housewives ex-husband Jason Hoppy was already facing legal trouble, but now additional charges have been added to the case. Prosecutors in the case have added additional stalking charges in the case against Jason Hoppy, whose divorce from RHONY Bethenny Frankel became final last summer, just as Hoppy was asking the judge in the case to dismiss all of the charges. After viewing the new barrage of emails and text messages Hoppy allegedly sent to Frankel, the judge has decided not to dismiss the case.

Fans thought that when the Real HousewivesHoppy-Frankel divorce was finalized, and the Skinnygirl profits were divvied up the level of ire would cool down, but things seemed to have gotten worse despite Hoppy's big financial payday. The Skinnygirl brand is now fully under the control of Frankel who has had to deal with other Real Housewives-related liquor brand aggravation, including conflict with another RHONY star, Sonja Morgan, who is trying to launch her own brand she calls Tipsygirl. After Bethenny was made aware that Sonja was launching Prosecco with a name similar to Skinnygirl, she locked down a copyright that made it impossible for Sonja Morgan to pursue Tipsygirl in Manhattan, so instead, she decided to sell her bubbly in Hartford, Connecticut.

"We could have a much different relationship but you're unwilling to shut your mouth about me and my daughter [a]nd refuse to cooperate. Ball[']s in your court to change it. I'm happy to meet for to discuss. And you know you're the problem. But if not I wil[l] proceed as I see fit."
"Love how you [s]peak in the phone. You really have problems. Have a great weekend. She (6-year-old daughter Bryn) loves me so much. It's amazing the love a daughter has for her father and visa versa."

"Mr. Hoppy, I am extending your protection to Bethenny Frankel," Chu said.

"That means you have to stay away from her and [refrain] from making outreach to her. Do you understand?"


But transcripts documenting the alleged correspondence from Jason Hoppy to Bethenny make it sound as if Hoppy is not going to give up, and Frankel says that the tenor and volume of scary messages are causing her to fear for her own safety. Hoppy has put in writing that Frankel leaves him no choice, and he will do what he has to do to get through to her.

Hoppy told the Real Housewives star that she has been warned.

"Okay, I see. This is how you want to do this. Okay. You can play your game. It doesn't matter. You can get 10 lawyers. There's nothing you can do to stop me. You'll be sorry. You've been warned. I can't help it. She's pure evil. You've been warned. Don't say I didn't warn you."

Do you think Real Housewives' Jason Hoppy is going to be found guilty and do time behind bars for allegedly harassing ex Bethenny?
