Bethenny Frankel let the water works flow on this week’s episode of the Real Housewives of New York. In a tearful scene, the reality star opened up about her fears now that her restraining order against ex-husband Jason Hoppy is almost up. Will Frankel finally put Hoppy in her rear-view mirror?
Frankel’s emotional episode happened during a cast trip to Cartagena, Colombia. Frankel was with Ramona Singer, Tinsley Mortimer, Carole Radziwill, Dorinda Medley and Luann de Lesseps when she let the tears flow. Although the backdrop was gorgeous, Frankel was having a less-than stellar time in Colombia.
“I’m so stressed out, it’s beyond belief,” Frankel told her co-stars.

Hoppy, of course, was the source of Frankel’s anxiety. The Skinnygirl mogul has had a tumultuous relationship with Hoppy ever since they decided to part ways in the winter of 2012. Frankel and Hoppy were married for three years and share one child together. Although the divorce was officially finalized in the summer of 2016, Frankel’s drama with Hoppy was far from over.
According to People, Frankel accused Hoppy of stalking and harassing her on multiple occasions following the divorce. Hoppy was arrested after he continued the threats and showed up at their daughter’s school to confront Frankel.
After the incident, Hoppy was slapped with a restraining order that prohibited him from talking with Frankel and being around her. The reality star extended the restraining order this past October, though it was set to expire in six months as long as Hoppy stayed away.

During the cast trip, Frankel revealed that she is stressed out about the restraining order being lifted and her ongoing custody battle with Hoppy. Frankel about had a meltdown as the ladies headed out for a shopping trip, and she confessed that she felt like she was having a panic attack.
“I’m just scared,” Frankel shared. “I don’t want to go back to the life I had. I don’t want to be tortured.”
This, of course, is not the first time fans have seen Frankel stressed about her divorce. The reality star let the emotions fly during the reunion for Season 9. With tears flowing, Frankel confessed that the only thing that would make her happy is having no contact with Hoppy from here on out. Here’s to hoping Frankel gets her wish and doesn’t have to deal with her ex-husband any more.
