Bethenny Frankel broke down into sobs on Wednesday night's episode of Real Housewives of New York City as a court date in her custody battle with her ex Jason Hoppy grew closer. The two are fighting for custody of their daughter, 8-year-old Bryn. She also got upset as Jason's restraining order nears expiration. Read on for more details.
Bethenny and the rest of the gang, including Luann de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, Carole Radziwill, Tinsley Mortimer, and Dorinda Medley, were on vacation in Cartagena, Colombia when she had the sudden breakdown.
The Skinnygirl mogul, 47, told Dorinda she was "so stressed out," adding "it's beyond belief." That's when Bethenny opened up about her custody troubles with Jason.
The two divorced in 2012 after three years of marriage, which was documented on Bethenny Getting Married? and Bethenny Ever After. They've been embroiled in an intense and contentious custody battle ever since. Bethenny even filed for a restraining order after Jason was arrested for harassing and stalking her at Bryn's school.
"The restraining order’s up in a month," Bethenny told Dorinda. "I just got the custody papers to do the custody battle. I’m panicked about the restraining order being up. I’m just panicked. I’m trying to raise my daughter. I’m dealing with a despicable custody situation. There’s so much going on, I can’t even explain. I’m going to explode. I don’t have time for any bullsh**."
She later had a panic attack before they all went out shopping. "I don’t think I can go. I don’t think I can," she said, breaking out into sobs. "I’m under so much stress. I’m having a panic attack. I’m just scared. I don’t want to go back to the life I had. I don’t want to be tortured."
