Bethenny Frankel’s Ex-Husband Jason Hoppy’s Arrest

On tonight’s episode of Real Housewives of New York, Bethenny Frankel’s ex-husband is put on blast for his being arrested after a confrontation with Frankel at their daughter’s school.

An NYPD spokesperson spoke to Us Weekly and said that in January 2017, Hoppy was arrested after contacting Frankel “numerous times via email and FaceTime, and approached [the] victim making verbal threats.” Hoppy allegedly approached Frankel at their daughter Bryn’s school and said: 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. The case was then adjourned until April 26, 2017. Then, People reported that Hoppy filed for dismissal of the case.

But, it doesn’t look like this will happen, as a spokesperson from the New York District Attorney’s Office told People that:

Hoppy was arraigned on additional charges, including one count of stalking in the third degree, another count of stalking in the fourth degree and some additional conduct. The case was adjourned to Aug. 8 for a decision on motions.

After Hoppy’s arrest, his former attorney Robert C. Gottlieb released the following statement:

There are no words to express how saddened Mr. Hoppy is over his ex-wife’s unjustified actions. His only concern is his daughter and intends to vigorously fight these false charges.

For the last two seasons, Frankel has opened up about her emotional and traumatic divorce that she says has been like torture. Now, though the divorce has ended, she still has to deal with her ex-husband since they have one child together. On an episode of Real Housewives of New York, Frankel talked about the aftermath of her divorce, saying:

I don’t know why I’m being punished this way. My custody situation is over, my financial settlement is over, my apartment is sold, and yet I sometimes feel hopeless. And I sometimes feel like my ex is untouchable and I’m not going to be able to get out of this.

Frankel’s friend Carole Radziwill has said on the show that Hoppy has sent numerous insulting text messages, calling Frankel old, ugly and implying that she’s a bad mother.

Jason Hoppy and his legal representation have denied the allegations against him.

Blac Chyna Seeks Restraining Order

Blac Chyna has lawyered up against Rob Kardashian after he released revenge porn of her.

Lisa Bloom, who is Mischa Barton’s attorney in the actress’ ongoing revenge porn case, says she is now working with Chyna.

“I represent Blac Chyna. I just gave Rob Kardashian notice that we’ll be in court Monday seeking restraining orders against him,” Bloom tweeted Friday.

Kardashian, 30, posted naked photos of his former fiancée and graphic text messages to social media on Wednesday after claiming to have learned of affairs. Chyna, 29, responded on Snapchat with claims of abuse and videos of jewelry Rob had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on for her.

Hours later, Bloom released a statement explaining why she’s representing the Lashed cosmetics owner.

“Mr. Kardashian, you are now on notice: revenge porn is illegal. Cyberbullying your ex is harassment. Chyna ended your relationship months ago and she has the right to live as she chooses, work as she chooses, dress as she chooses, and be intimate with who she chooses,” the statement read. “Chyna and I both believe that this is an important women’s rights issue, as too many women and girls have been slut-shamed by exes. It stops now. Your attempts to shame and control her are hereby rejected. Her body, her choice. Her life, her choice. Back off.”

California, home to both stars, has had an anti-revenge porn law on the books since 2013.

Earlier this week, another member of Chyna’s legal team told Page Six that they were “taking this assault against Chyna very seriously and still exploring all available legal remedies to her at this time.”

Bloom previously told Page Six that Chyna “likely has a private right of action against [Rob] for money damages for the emotional distress he has surely caused her.”

Rob and Chyna are parents to a baby girl named Dream Kardashian.

Phaedra Parks Will Not Return To #RHOA

Get ready for a casting shakeup when “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” returns for season 10.

Phaedra Parks will not be returning to the hit Bravo reality show for the upcoming season, E! News reports. The news of Parks’ departure from the drama-filled show comes just one day after the explosive wrap-up to the season nine reunion special.

At the Andy Cohen-hosted sit-down, it was revealed that Parks, 43, was behind a bombshell rumor that co-star Kandi Burruss and her husband Todd Tucker were planning to drug and rape fellow cast mate Porsha Williams.

During the special, which aired in four parts, Phaedra, Kandi and Porsha went back and forth hurling accusations and denials toward one another, with Phaedra repeatedly denying Porsha’s claims that she had spread the rumor.

After it was clear she would not be escaping her lie, Parks eventually offered up an apology to her fellow housewives. “What more can I do? I apologized already and the person I’m most concerned about is Porsha,” she said on the reunion special. “I’m sorry that it hurt Kandi as well.”

The Georgia lawyer first joined the franchise’s cast in 2010. In 2014, she filed for divorce from her husband – and the father of her two children – Apollo Nida, who is currently serving an eight-year prison sentence for bank fraud. The divorce has since been thrown out, as Nida claimed last December that he had never been served.

Meanwhile, as Parks departs, Kim Zolciak-Biermann will make her return after leaving the show in 2012.

Real Housewives of Potomac Season 2 Episode 1 Recap

Have you missed the ladies of Potomac in their absence from our screens?

If so, then The Real Housewives of Potomac Season 2 Episode 1 was most definitely the episode you were craving. It had it all: Catfights, Fashion and a whole lot of shade.

When the episode got underway, Gizelle Bryant was trying on a new wig and implying she knew better than Beyonce. “Becky and all of her good hair don’t have nothin’ on me.” Yeah, we believe you Gizelle. If that was not self-centered enough, Gizelle then pleaded with her hairdresser to let her speak about her new boyfriend.

“Can we talk about my man? … Kevin. … I dunno if we’re gonna mingle, but we’re at least gonna give it a shot.” Um, Gizelle, it sure seems like you don’t know much about your man. “If he comes in a short package, that’s fine. As long as not everything is short,” she concluded.

After that, we checked in with Charrisse — who was no longer reeling from the events that paved the way for her husband to ditch her. “Charrisse last year was a very unhappy person and holding onto damaged goods. … Charrisse don’t live here anymore.”

Charrisse also revealed that she sent a cease and desist letter to Charrisse for chatting smack about her to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live.

Meanwhile, Ashley revealed that things between her and Michael were not good and part of that was down to their restaurant not doing good business.

“We’re eight months in, and it’s been a very difficult time. … People weren’t really digging our food.” She then opened up about their dire finances, saying, “Michael has invested over 1.5 million dollars, and he’s taking care of it until we make ends meet. It’s putting a strain on my relationship.”

That’s a whole lot of money to invest in something that appears to be failing. Ashley was not the only cast member struggling with dire straits on the financial side of things. Robyn revealed that things were not going well. “As a result of all of our financial challenges, our house ended up going into foreclosure.” She then opened up about her husband, Juan and his desire to become a couple again. “Juan wants us to be a couple again, but there’s a block up that’s preventing me from looking at our situation as a relationship.”

After that, Charisse revealed that her husband wanted to part ways with her. “He’s wanting a divorce.” She continued, “I decided that you know what? My children are what’s important. … We haven’t talked about it so much. … Hopefully, he gets a job.”

Later, Gizelle stirred up some drama for Charrisse. Robyn was trying to bring the feud to an end, but defended Charrisse in the process. “I don’t feel like she was calling you a whore. … Didn’t she say something like, ‘I’m not going around calling you a whore?’”

“You were wrong for putting her business out there.”

However, Robyn’s words were not enough to tone down Gizelle, who went forward with some more claims about her former friend. “She has told me she cheats on Eddie,” Gizelle claimed. Is she lying? We have no idea.

At the Manifest Your Destiny competition charity event, Gizelle tried to stir up some more drama. This time it was all down to a dancer named Teon who was grinding on Ashley. Ashley did win first place in the competition, but Charrisse was too busy turning her attentions to Gizelle.

“I did not call you a f–king whore. Don’t let the zip code fool you, baby.” Gizelle seemed to retreat, but is she just biding her time to ruin Charrisse’s life?
