Bethenny Frankel Divorce Details: Reality Star Asks For Primary Physical Custody

Jan 07, 2013

Things are about to get nasty on "Bethenny Ever After." TMZ has uncovered new details in the divorce papers that Bethenny Frankel filed against husband-of-two-years Jason Hoppy last week.

Among the juiciest are that the former "Real Housewives of New York" star and Skinnygirl founder has asked for primary physical custody of their 2-year-old daughter, Bryn. Frankel -- who pulled in $12 million last year, according to Forbes -- also asked Hoppy for child support and "medical, dental, optical, therapeutic, and orthodontic expenses" for both her and Bryn. The couple signed a prenup on March 23, 2010 that Frankel -- surprise! -- requested be enforced in their divorce proceedings.

Frankel, 42, and real-estate businessman Hoppy had weathered their marital problems on the Bravo reality show "Bethenny Ever After." On Dec. 23, Frankel announced she was separating from Hoppy; she officially filed for divorce two weeks later.

"This was an extremely difficult decision that as a woman and a mother, I have to accept as the best choice for our family," Frankel said in a statement at the time. "We have love and respect for one another and will continue to amicably co-parent our daughter who is and will always remain our first priority. This is an immensely painful and heartbreaking time for us."
