Bethenny Frankel Bails on ‘Housewives’ Filming After Ex-Husband’s Arrest
“Real Housewives of New York” star Bethenny Frankel skipped filming the reality show on Friday night, after an alleged incident involving her ex-husband, Jason Hoppy, Page Six has learned.

Hoppy was charged with harassing and stalking Frankel after he allegedly sent a series of abusive emails and turned up at their daughter’s Manhattan school on Friday. An NYPD spokeswoman told Page Six on Tuesday that Hoppy approached Frankel and a friend at the school around 8:15 a.m. and “tried to provoke a fight. He said, ‘I will destroy you, you can get all the lawyers you want, you’ve been warned.’” (Hoppy’s attorney told us he “intends to vigorously fight these false charges.”)

Spies have further told Page Six that after the alleged incident, a distraught Frankel skipped filming her show Friday night.

A source told us that the Bravo show’s cameras were rolling when the “Real Housewives” cast attended a Dressed to Kilt charity fashion show. “All the other ‘Housewives’ were there … Bethenny was a no-show,” a spy said. The source added, “When Carole Radziwill [Frankel’s best friend on the show] is there and the cameras are rolling, you know Bethenny is expected so she just didn’t show.”

A source close to the star told us that Frankel did not attend because of Friday’s earlier drama, but that she did then go on a trip with the cast to the Killington Ski Resort in Vermont.
