Bethenny Frankel ‘furious’ about parenting evaluation

Bethenny Frankel and Jill ZarinReality TV star Bethenny Frankel  is reported to be ‘furious’ about a court-ordered ‘parenting evaluation’ as her custody dispute with estranged husband Jason Hoppy continues.

According to celebrity site Radar Online, the 42 year TV personality and entrepreneur is “furious that her parenting style and  methods are going to be questioned”.

Both Hoppy and Frankel are reported to have applied for custody of their two year-old daughter Bryn. The parenting evaluation will help determine who is successful.

Radar Online quotes a source said to be “close” to Frankel:

“Bryn is her whole life, and she doesn’t want anyone to assess her mothering skills. 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.”

Frankel married Hoppy, an executive in the pharmaceutical industry, in 2010. They separated in December last year and she filed for divorce the following month.

Frankel appeared in popular reality show The Real Housewives of New York City, before launching her own show, Bethenny Ever After, originally titled Bethenny Getting Married?

She is also the founder of Skinnygirl Cocktails.
