What started out as a typical Hollywood separation is about to get weird… And dirty.
Weeks after it was announced that “Real Housewives of New York” star Bethenny Frankel and her husband, Jason Hoppy, were filing for divorce, his demands in the parting of marital ways are being reported. And—surprise, surprise—they want the same things.
TMZ is reporting the details of Jason’s response to Bethenny's divorce petition. Here are all the things they BOTH want out of the split:
1. Primary custody of their two-year-old daughter, Bryn Hoppy. You can’t exactly split the kid in half.
2. Child support. While both sides of the legal battle are adamant about their desires to fully possess Bryn as their own, neither apparently wants to pay for her.
3. Life insurance. In case one or the other dies, the divorcees each want to be beneficiaries in their former partner's untimely demise. Even though they never want to look at each others' faces ever again.
4. Also, both apparently want “exclusive use and occupancy of the marital residence.”
Ugh… Of course, the only true way that all of these demands can be met by both sides of the former-lovers' courtroom minefield is that they both stay married. GASP! Did I really just suggest that?
They need to weigh the pros and cons… What’s worse? Paying for my daughter’s school or smelling my partner’s stanky breath in the morning? Missing my daughter every other day or seeing my partner every single day.
Bethenny and Jason have been married for a whopping total of two years. Hopefully the divorce proceedings don’t outlast that lovespan.
