Hoppy was in court in NYC this morning to face off against Frankel's charges of stalking and harassment. He was offered a plea deal if he agreed to plead guilty to a violation, but Hoppy and his attorney Alex Spiro rejected the deal.
According to the allegations, Hoppy approached Frankel and a friend at their daughter's school and said to her "I will destroy you, you can get all the lawyers you want, you've been warned." It was also revealed that Hoppy had previously been sent a cease and desist by Frankel over allegations that Hoppy had sent Frankel numerous emails and FaceTime calls.
The reality TV couple had appeared on Real Housewives of New York together and even wed on air in 2010 before Frankel filed for divorce in January of 2013. That messy divorce lasted over three years. Their shared apartment was a point of contention along with custody of their daughter Bryn, 6.
A temporary order of protection against Hoppy is in place until July while the two duke it out in court. The next hearing is set for April 26th.
