In divorce documents obtained by TMZ, Frankel - who is worth over $25 million on her own - is after...

  • Child support that's retroactive to the date on which she filed for divorce.
  • Medical, dental, optical, therapeutic and orthodontic expenses for her and the couple's daughter, Bryn.
  • Life insurance listing her and Bryn as beneficiaries.
  • Primary physical custody of Bryn.
  • Exclusive occupancy of the apartment she and Hoppy shared.

Says a source to TMZ of Frankel's mindset:

"This is a preliminary step to move the process forward.  She wants to work this out privately and amicably. All Bethenny cares about is that it works out the best way possible for Bryn."

OMG she's UGLY and greedy!!


Bethenny is a real New Yorker and her husband a real mid-Westener. He can't understand her drive, and she can't understand his incessant need to include his parent's in everything. What ever made him think he could corral an independent spirit.


Wow - Bethenny looks just like HEIDI FLEISS.
Divorce does not look good on her!


I thought that she was damaged, but just did'nt realize how damaged. I guess the fruit dos'nt fall far from the tree, what was done to her is going to be what she does to that presious little girl, I just hope that jason fights for all its worth to keep things normal in his daughters life. He deserves so much well as HIS FAMILY.


Are you kidding me? Greedy bitch! I liked her until I read this. From what I have seen, Jason is a great father. They should have shared custody and Jason should get spousal support - and a LOT of it.


She's such a pig. How dare her. Hope she loses her fans and her talk show tanks. She is a disgusting excuse for a human being - is she one? Jill Zarin was right and we were all wrong.


she is pathetic. she obviously is not doing this for her daughter- shes only doing this for herself. why does she need to be a beneficiary on his life insurance and why should he pay for her needs? its disgusting because she is worth so much money and can clearly take care of herself. i hope he gives her nothing- only their daughter deserves anything out of the divorce. what a f*ucking greedy a*s b*tch.


She is quite ugly to look at
