I’ve been one of the few people who feels like Jason Hoppy has been portrayed as some sort of a monster in the press when he’s probably not. My opinion has now changed. I was particularly saddened by the death of Dennis Shields who recently overdosed on medications he was prescribed after a back surgery.
As a kid who didn’t have TV until my family returned to the US just before middle school, I remember being profoundly effected by new stories. Someone died in a fire. People dying in war. Children with distended bellies dying of starvation. It all freaked me out and made me really sad. I remember asking my mother why people didn’t cry when watching the news and she looked at me like I was crazy and said something like, “that’s just life.” So I am a bit embarrassed that I care so much about some rich New York woman on a reality show. But I do care. And today’s news is breaking my cold black heart.
Jason Drags Bethenny Back To Court While She Is Grieving
Jason Hoppy was in court with Bethenny today basically trying to take her kid away from her. And the reason he is citing is Dennis Shields death. Page Six is reporting that in court today, less than a week after Dennis’s death Bethenny was in court with Jason. “It was reported that he died of an Oxycodone overdose. Our concern is while his death is very sad this raises serious concerns about Ms. Frankel’s parental judgment,” said Robert Wallack, attorney for Jason Hoppy.
Jason’s attorney has suggested that it was dangerous for Dennis to be around Byrn and to be allowed to babysit her unsupervised. He is also suggesting that Bethenny may have a drug problem of her own. He’s asking for drug testing. They also pointed out Bethenny was drunk and naked on this episode of RHONY. They said she “passed out” after mixing Ambien and alcohol. I don’t think we saw her pass out. She was just having fun!
This is just a bitch move at this point. I get that Bethenny is also trying to get full custody, but if Bryn gets taken from her, she will not survive that. My heart is breaking. And I feel stupid for being so concerned for someone I only know through damn TV. I seriously feel like throwing up.
