Last week we told you that Bethenny Frankel’s ex-husband Jason Hoppy has been sending harassing emails to her, and her new boyfriend Dennis Shields. After receiving almost 50 emails, Dennis had his lawyer send Jason a legal letter threatening a lawsuit if these emails don’t stop.
The emails were targeting Bethenny, and accused her of having a “revolving door of men,” as well as being “ugly, old, and irrelevant.” Unfortunately for B, it doesn’t look like finalizing her divorce was the end of her Jason drama, and TMZ is now reporting Jason’s defense to the previous allegations of his crazy behavior!
Jason’s response actually seems legit, however he didn’t actually deny the rude things he said about Bethenny; it looks like he means what he said! Jason claims that he is “forced to interact” with Dennis because he is “constantly” around his young daughter Bryn!
Supposedly, part of Jason’s reply read, “As a concerned father, I often have to contact others when I cannot reach my daughter through her mother.” This seems fair enough, and had Jason left out the previous slander, most people would be on his side; however that’s not how he acted so now he just looks bad!
Jason also insists that because of Dennis’ current relationship with Bryn he has, “no choice but to have some type of relationship with him.”
Dennis threatened to sue if the emails didn’t stop, but with Jason responding they may have no choice but to figure this out in court. I actually admire that Jason is a concerned, involved dad; but his delivery is wrong and he handled everything horribly!
I’m hoping this will all be captured for RHONY season 9; or at the very least addressed. Bethenny has stayed mum for the moment, so maybe she’s really saving her thoughts for the Bravo cameras!
