Jason Hoppy was arrest on Friday for allegedly stalking and harassing ex-wife Bethany Frankel and her new boyfriend Dennis Shields.


The Real Housewives of New York City star filed a police complaint after Hoppy showed up at their 6-year-old daughter’s school and allegedly threatened her and Shields. Frankel claims her ex verbally attacked them, yelling that he would “destroy” her. “Ok I see, this is how you want to do this,” Frankel writes Hoppy said. “You can play your game, it doesn’t matter. You can get 10 lawyers. There’s nothing you can do to stop me. You’ll be sorry. You’ve been warned. I can’t help it, she’s pure evil. You’ve been warned, don’t say I didn’t warn you.”

Police arrested Hoppy in his Manhattan apartment a few hours later. Hoppy had allegedly been emailing and FaceTime calling Frankel relentlessly over the three months prior to this incident, saying that “he would not go away” and “he had no choice but to go to extremes.” The NYPD says he was charged with second degree harassment and fourth degree stalking, for contacting the “female victim numerous times via email and FaceTime as well as approaching her and making verbal threats.”

Frankel was also granted a restraining order valid for six months. “There are no words to express how saddened Mr. Hoppy is over his ex-wife’s unjustified actions,” says a statement by Hoppy’s lawyer Robert C. Gottlieb. “His only concern is his daughter and intends to vigorously fight these false charges.”

The estranged couple ended their marriage in 2012, after Frankel claims she “endured years of mental and psychological abuse.” She’s also said, “I have cried enough tears to fill the Hudson River. I’d think, how could this go on for so long?”
