Bethenny Frankel cried on the stand again on Monday as she recalled how ex-husband Jason Hoppy “used FaceTime to taunt me” at least twice a day every day.
The warring couple’s contentious custody battle over their 8-year-old daughter Bryn resumed in Manhattan Supreme Court, where the “Real Housewives of New York City” star testified about Hoppy’s allegedly verbally abusive behavior in a May 9, 2015 FaceTime call.
“The circumstances were I was trying to FaceTime Bryn … and I have experienced basically everyday Jason using it as a tool to harass me or abuse me or taunt me and on that day, I recorded our correspondence,” Frankel said.
She said that day was Mother’s Day and it was also Bryn’s birthday weekend.
After she asked Hoppy to speak to their daughter, he snapped, “Keep recording me, you’ve lost your privilege for recording me.”
The Skinny Girl mogul explained that she endured Hoppy’s calls “twice a day, every day … every time before the order of protection.”
“Jason used FaceTime to taunt me, abuse me, say negative things, laugh at me,” she said, choking back tears. “‘Is everything OK, Bethenny? Are you having a bad day, Bethenny? You seemed stressed, Bethenny.’”
Frankel first broke down in court when custody hearing began earlier this month.
She has been accompanied to court by her current boyfriend, Paul Bernon.
