The reality TV star, who appeared at Manhattan's Supreme Court on Thursday, Oct. 2, to discuss the value of assets she and husband Jason Hoppy must divide to enable them to divorce, was told very clearly such silly behaviour was not advisable.
Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Ellen Gesmer had one message for Frankel's lawyer Allan Mayefsky: “No more pajamas!” And when Mayefsky explained that the whole pajama incident (Frankel took a snap of herself wearing daughter Bryn's PJs and shared the snap via Instagram back in July) was supposed to be a joke, the judge was very firm.
“It’s not a joke. Her child is not a joke,” Gesmer said, reminding Frankel Internet postings remain online forever.
A trial to divide Frankel’s estimated $55 million fortune is expected to take place in the next few months. But despite Frankel's legal woes, things are looking up for the Skinnygirl entrepreneur, whose eponymous talk show was cancelled in February.
As Us Weekly exclusively reveals in the new issue, Frankel will return to the Bravo's The Real Housewives of New York City for the seventh season after a four year hiatus. Producers hope her return will help boost ratings, which fell to 1 million (from a record 2.6 million) during season six. "Bringing her back is a last-ditch effort," one source says.
