Former “Housewives of New York” star and failed talk show host Bethany Frankel is being ordered to pay one hundred thousand dollars for her soon to be ex- husband’s legal fees.
In court documents filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, Frankel, who is now a multi-millionaire with her Skinnygirl line of diet products, has to pay her husband’s legal fees because she makes so much more money than he does.
Jason Hoppy, who is an account executive at the pharmaceutical company AbbVie, not only is getting his legal fees paid for by the woman he is divorcing but the New York Post reported last month that the now single drug pusher wants Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Ellen Gesmer to order Frankel to pay an advance on their eventual settlement while their bitter divorce drags on.
Frankel, whose net worth is $12 million, according to Forbes, filed for divorce early last year. The contentious divorce proceedings have lasted almost as long as the marriage itself. Earlier this year, the Skinnygirl diet queen had her syndicated show get cancelled due to poor ratings.
