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.
