It’s fun being beautiful and perfect, but greatness also comes at a price. We’re used to people being literally obsessed with us, but Bethenny Frankel’s ex-husband Jason Hoppy (who’s not a cartoon bunny) is taking the whole clingy ex thing to a whole new level. He got charged with stalking this week, after new information came out about how much of a psycho he was after his divorce was finalized last summer.
Well, he actually got charged with more stalking (what a guy), adding two counts to three existing ones that he’s still facing. Now he’s in trouble for sending Bethenny more than 160 creepy-ass texts and emails since the divorce was made official, and also screaming “I will destroy you” when Bethenny was dropping their 6-year-old daughter off at school. Yeah, you read that right, he texted her 160 times. That’s obviously batshit crazy, but it does make us feel a little better about double texting the guy we’re hooking up with when he doesn’t respond.
Unsurprisingly, Bethenny repeatedly asked Jason to leave her alone, including in October, right before he sent her this gem of a text:
“We could have a much different relationship but you’re unwilling to shut your mouth about me and my daughter and refuse to cooperate. Ball’s in your court to change it. I’m happy to meet for to discuss. And you know you’re the problem. But if not I will proceed as I see fit.”
What the fuck does all of that mean? “For to discuss”? “The ball’s in your court”? Sorry dude, but maybe you should cut the sports metaphor bullshit and try being, like, 10% normal for a change. Your 6-year-old daughter is really going to love explaining to her friends that daddy is in jail for stalking mommy.
The judge in the case extended Hoppy’s restraining order on Tuesday, and gently reminded him that he’s not allowed to fucking email Bethenny anymore. Sounds cool, now can we get a restraining order against all those emails from ASOS?
