An emergency hearing has been requested by Bethenny Frankel’s estranged husband, Jason Hoppy. This is a jolt just ahead of the season premiere of The Real Housewives of New York City.
The divorce attorneys for Bethenny received a call from Jason’s attorneys. A moving crew arrived at the apartment and removed Bethenny’s belongings from there.
Sending a moving crew to the apartment not warranted says judge
The $5 million apartment they shared in New York City was always a bone of contention between the two, who had split two years ago. As ordered by the judge, the house was to remain in joint ownership until the finalization of the divorce.
Divorce attorneys for Jason told the judge that Bethenny had purchased a new apartment and was moving her things out of the Tribeca place. Bryn was at home when the moving crew started to remove things, and that apparently scared her, and she started to cry. This made Jason furious and he then called his attorneys.
The judge heard the case from Jason’s attorneys and was unhappy with Bethenny for exposing Bryn to the fights that the two of them had. The judge also said that moving crew should not have been sent to the apartment. Bethenny also apparently took the help of an assistant instead of taking her daughter to the beach over the summer, and that also made Hoppy mad.
Bethenny started a relationship with Michael Mac Cerussi, and the couple have been dating since 2013, according to divorce attorneys.
There are also rumors that the two of them might be engaged, despite Bethenny’s efforts to keep the relationship out of the public glare.
Women struggle to rebuild their financial status after a divorce
Divorce can result in a downgrade in financial status for many women, more so for those belonging to the middle or low income group. Loss of working hours, more time to look after children and difficulty in finding a job or finishing education are all the fallouts of a divorce for women.
Women from all socioeconomic brackets can be hit just as hard, according to spokesman at the National Foundation for Credit Counseling, Bruce McClary. Many of them have to start from scratch to rebuild their finances, which can be very tough, according to McClary.
Typical predicament of many women divorcees
Michelle Bornemann had to fight a similar situation when she got divorced four years ago. She had two children and was employed at an insurance company before the birth of her children, but later could not find a job. She is currently working as a special-ed teacher’s aide and earns $12.50 an hour.
The moral of this story is not have children with someone you do not know that well.
She says that she does not have extra money in her account and has to pay the bills week by week. She would earn less during the summer holidays when the kids are at home. Also, she is unable to attend to the repairs around her house, such as leaks in the bathrooms and sinkholes that need fixing and so on. She ultimately had to declare bankruptcy.
A study conducted by the Urban Institute in 2012, found that only 43% of working parents got paid time off from their employer while the rest worked nonstandard hours, including night shifts. This can be a challenge for the women belonging to the upper strata as well, according to experts. This is because of the weak economy tossed at America which Obamacare is a large part of. This is also because of high taxes and regulations that kill jobs (Dodd/Frank, Sarbanes Oxley, the EPA, America faces the largest corporate tax, and so on). On top of this, it is very important you plan your life out appropriately.
