Bethenny Frankel's return to The Real Housewives of New York City is a done deal, but ex-husband Jason Hoppy will do anything to keep their daughter off it.
Hoppy is expected to formally ask the judge handling their bitter divorce to prevent 4-year-old daughter Bryn Hoppy from ever appearing on the Bravo show.
Frankel's return to RHONYC was confirmed this week, and “Jason isn’t thrilled because he knows Bethenny is going to get in numerous jabs" about their split.
While anything you see when you watch The Real Housewives of New York City online is out of his control, Hoppy hopes to control one critical aspect.
“It’s just unhealthy for Bryn to be on TV at a time when her parents are getting divorced,” explains the source. “Bethenny signed up for the show, [Bryn] didn’t.”
Bethenny may point to Hoppy’s double standard, says a source: “Jason had no problem with Bryn being on Bethenny’s [shows] when they were happily married."
