Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy went to court last week for their divorce trial, but since Hoppy wants a little more than just money, the Real Housewives of New York City star is doing everything in her power to get sole custody of the former couple's daughter Bryn.
The source said:
“Jason has come a long way since he filed for divorce and requested sole custody of Bryn, just as Bethenny did when she initially filed. Jason doesn’t want to cut Bethenny out of his daughter’s life, and he recognizes that Bryn needs her mommy. Jason is agreeable to joint custody of Bryn, but Bethenny is absolutely balking. She wants sole custody of Bryn, period. No compromises. It makes no sense because Jason is a very active father and plans to be a huge part of his daughter’s life."
And on top of that, Bethenny "is furious that her parenting style and methods are going to be questioned" because "Bryn is her whole life, and she doesn’t want anyone to assess her mothering skills."
The insider added:
"She does not want a complete stranger to come into her home and pass judgment on the way she nurtures Bryn. Bethenny has trouble trusting people she doesn’t know, and this is not making her happy.”
Additionally, Frankel hired Katie Holmes' lawyer, Allan Mayefsky who helped her get sole custody of Suri with Tom Cruise, but unfortunately for Bettheny, the attorney has NOT been able to get the same outcome in the reality starlet's situation.
Whatever happens next, we can only hope that it's in the best interest for Bryn, because when everything is all said and done, her happiness is what really matters!
