"We find that the broad and expansive language used by the parties in their agreement forecloses the husband from seeking any kind of spousal support, including temporary support. After acknowledging and representing that they are 'fully capable of being self supporting,' the parties agreed to 'waive any and all claims for spousal support and/or maintenance' 'both now and in the future,'" court documents read of the case.

Frankel has reportedly been paying Hoppy a court ordered total of around $26,000 per month since they split in 2012, including $12,000 in temporary alimony and $10,000 in child support for their daughter Bryn.

However, Frankel may not be out of the woods just yet. The SkinnyGirl mogul must still put up a fight for the $5 million Tribeca condominium she bought while married to Hoppy, who is currently living in the residence.

"Although the wife funded the purchase of the apartment and ordinarily would be considered the settlor, the husband avers that the parties had agreed that the apartment would be joint property, and that consistent with the intention, he made certain payments towards maintenance and renovations," the documents found. "Nonetheless, issues of fact exist whether the parties intended to jointly own the apartment, and whether the husband was involved in any fraud in the preparation and execution of the trust agreement."

The court is set to rule whether Hoppy has rights to the property or not at a later date.
