Bethenny Frankel Jason Hoppy Doesn’t Want Bryn on ‘RHONY’

Bethenny Frankel Out And About In NYCIt’s been confirmed: Bethenny Frankel is returning to her reality TV roots for the upcoming season of ‘Real Housewives of New York.’ However, her daughter Bryn may not be returning with her. Jason Hoppy reportedly is heading to court to ask a judge to prohibit Bryn from appearing on the show. RELATED: Bethenny Frankel scolded by judge for wearing her daughter’s pajamas.

A source told Radar Online:

Jason isn’t thrilled with it because he knows Bethenny is going to get in numerous jabs about the divorce.”

Another source said:

It’s just not healthy for Bryn to be on TV at a time when her parents are getting divorced. Bethenny signed up for the show, their daughter didn’t.”

Bethenny’s lawyers reportedly will point out that this is something of a double standard on Jason’s part.

Jason had no problem with Bryn being on Bethenny’s Bravo spin-off show when they were happily married. Bethenny wouldn’t have Bryn be with her during every single shoot for Real Housewives of New York, but she is adamant that the judge allow her to be on the show.”

I can see Bethenny’s attorneys point, but I’m not sure if it will matter. Typically both custodial parents have to sign off on a minor appearing on a show: that’s how Jon Gosselin was able to shut down ‘Kate Plus 8.’ He’s against it now, but he reportedly waived his right to say if they could appear on TV or not in return for not having to pay child support. Otherwise, there wouldn’t be any ‘Kate Plus 8′ specials. Really, though, Bethenny is interesting all on her own :).

Halle Berry Requesting Court Slash Gabriel Aubry’s Child Support Payments So He Has To Work

Halle Berry & Daughter Nahla Shopping At The GroveCurrently, Halle Berry is paying Gabriel Aubry $16K per month in child support for their daughter, Nahla. Well, the ‘Extant’ star has had enough of that. She filed documents requesting the court slash the child support payments to just $3K per month. RELATED: Halle Berry dishes on being a working mom.

TMZ reports that Halle claimed in her legal documents:

Gabriel has stopped working and is content to live off of the child support, and that’s an abuse of the system.

She notes Gabriel is perfectly capable of getting a job … and by reducing the support it will allow 6-year-old Nahla to live a comfortable life … supplemented by his income.

They have joint physical and legal custody, so each parent has Nahla 50% of the time. Good luck with that, Halle. If that argument worked, don’t you think a whole lot of fathers would have made the same argument about the mother of their children when it comes to child support payments?

On one hand, $16K a month sounds like an outrageous amount of money. Remember the point of child support, however: the child is supposed to live in the same manor as if they were with the wealthy parents, so wealthy non-custodial parents can’t just leave their kids living in a dump while they live it up. With that reasoning, $16K makes sense. At least ‘Extant’ was renewed for another season! Halle may have had better luck if she was unemployed.

Halle Berry wants her child support to Gabriel reduced from $16k to $3k a month

Exclusive... Gabriel Aubry Takes Nahla Out For Lunch
In June of this year, Halle Berry was ordered to pay $16,000 a month in child support to her ex, Gabriel Aubry, along with over $100,000 in missed child support payments. That amount was reduced from the $20,000 monthly child support she’d been court ordered to pay Aubry since 2012. (Of which she had missed about five months prior to that ruling.) Halle and Gabriel have one daughter together, Nahla, 6. They split in 2010 after five years together.

As you may remember, in late 2012 Berry launched a campaign to move to France with Nahla that was shot down by the custody judge. Shortly after that ruling, Berry’s then fiance, Olivier Martinez, got into a fist fight with Gabriel at Berry’s house during a custody handoff. That’s just background on Berry’s custody battle, which has been contentious and even violent at times. Anyway now Berry reportedly claims that Aubry doesn’t work at all and just lives off her child support so she wants to cut it way down.

Halle Berry has had it with baby daddy Gabriel Aubry … claiming he has been living ENTIRELY off child support, and she is asking a judge to STOP the gravy train.

TMZ has learned … Berry filed legal docs asking the judge in their custody case to reduce her monthly child support obligation from $16,000 a month to just over $3,000 a month.

Halle claims in her legal docs … Gabriel has stopped working and is content to live off of the child support, and that’s an abuse of the system.

She notes Gabriel is perfectly capable of getting a job … and by reducing the support it will allow 6-year-old Nahla to live a comfortable life … supplemented by his income.

Halle and Gabriel have joint custody … each has the kid around 50% of the time.

[From TMZ]

Aubry, 39, used to work as a male model so his shelf life is pretty limited despite his fame. I can understand why he’s not making what he once was and why Berry should pay him support. $16k a month sounds excessive to me, but they’re in LA and Nahla goes to private school. That number is based on Halle’s earnings, so both parents can afford the lifestyle the child is accustomed to. They share custody and Berry can definitely afford it.

Why is she aiming to cut child support down to just $3k a month though? Why not reduce it incrementally to about $12k a month? Maybe this is a legal move and the lawyers assume that the judge will reduce the amount but not by that much. We haven’t heard much from Halle recently. I’m surprised she hasn’t announced a breakup with Olivier.

Fantasia Barrino Father Of Their Teenage Daughter Sues For Custody

The 68th Annual Tony Awards‘American Idol’ alum Fantasia Barrino is embroiled in another domestic legal problem, but it’s very different from the “homewrecker” case she faced a few years ago. The father of Fantasia’s 13-year-old daughter is suing for custody. RELATED: Fantasia denies breaking up a marriage.

According to TMZ, Brandel Shouse is claiming in his legal documents that he’s the better parent, so he wants physical and legal custody. According to Fantasia, he’s never had any kind of relationship with their daughter. At all.

Apparently Fantasia and Brandel dated in high school, but the relationship was abusive; he reportedly pled guilty to beating and choking her. Well, Fantasia has decided to fight fire with fire. She’s countersuing Brandel for 13 years worth of child support, since she’s said he’s never given her any money to support their daughter.

If he simply wanted to see his daughter and establish a relationship with her, I think that would be great. Every child should know both of their parents if that’s possible. Just trying to swoop in and get primary custody, however, is another matter entirely. I hope the courts consider what’s in this girl’s best interest and act accordingly.

Sherri Shepherd & Lamar Sally Speak Out About Divorce & Custody Battle

'Grudge Match' New York PremiereIt sounds like Sherri Shepherd and Lamar Sally are still very much in the thick of it with regards to their divorce and custody battle. This custody battle has a bit of a different twist: Sherri wants her parental rights waived to their son, who was born via surrogate just last July. Lamar wants her to be considered a custodial parent while he retains physical custody of their son, which would entitle him to child support. Both Sherri and Lamar opened up- a little- about the situation in separate interviews. RELATED: Here’s a surprising twist in the Sherri Shepherd and Lamar Sally custody case.

Sherri acknowledged what was going on when she visited Wendy Williams. She said:

We can’t say anything about that. I have a lot of lawyers and I’m in court right now and it’s very public and it’s very painful. You know for me, I’m not Tori and Dean, I don’t get paid to talk about my life, so when people tweet me I always say go to Wendy, she knows what’s going on. You can ask Wendy about my life.”

This can’t be easy. Meanwhile, here’s what Lamar said to People:

[Sherri] said, ‘I will love the baby like it’s mine… she never said she didn’t want the baby.”

He said that Sherri “blindsided” him six months into the pregnancy by saying she wanted a divorce. So that’s why he hightailed it out to California and filed for a legal separation? Hmmm…

Sheri still isn’t named on the baby’s birth certificate. She’s reportedly saying Lamar “defrauded” her into having the baby just so he could sue for divorce and get child support from her. Lamar added:

I think it’s the worst thing in the world for L.J. to look at his birth certificate at 16 and see it says, ‘Mother unknown.’ “

A pretrial hearing is set for October 2 in Pennsylvania. I feel so badly for the baby born into all of this.

Sherri Shepherd Accuses Lamar Sally Of Stealing $20K From Her

Sherri Shepherd Visits "Good Morning America"It was already clear this divorce and custody battle- if you can call it that- was going to be nasty, but if you had any doubts, the latest developments between Sherri Shepherd and Lamar Sally can put that to rest. Sherri reportedly is accusing Lamar of stealing $20K from their joint bank account. RELATED: Sherri Shepherd is Broadway-bound as a surrogate delivers the baby boy she was expecting with her estranged husband.

A source told TMZ Sherri wasn’t aware the money was missing until she saw a bank account statement. This is further evidence she plans to use to show that Lamar has been defrauding her all along: just marrying her and having a baby with her so he could divorce her and sue her for child support. Lamar’s people reportedly say she was aware he took the money (implying it wasn’t theft). Sherri wasn’t at the hospital when the surrogate delivered last week, and Lamar says he still hasn’t heard from her.

Sherri is trying NOT to be considered a custodial parent at all to this baby. Since they used a donor egg, and surrogacy agreements aren’t recognized in New Jersey, Sherri may be able to get a court to waive all parental responsibilities if she can get their divorce case heard in New Jersey. Since that’s where they lived before Lamar hightailed it to California, I think she’s got a good chance of getting the case heard on the east coast. There’s no word on whether or not Lamar was able to get her name on the baby’s birth certificate (which is what he reportedly was trying to do last month).

I can’t imagine all the stress Sherri must be under these days. I feel so badly for her. Well, she triumphed with her ex-husband’s attempt to get primary custody of their son, Jeffrey. Hopefully this case will work out well, too.

Sherri Shepherd Broadway-Bound To Become The “Wicked Stepmother” As Baby Son Arrives

sherri shepherd (1)A lot is going on for Sherri Shepherd as she prepares to leave ‘The View‘! She announced her first gig after she leaves the talk show later this month; she’s going to Broadway to star as the Wicked Stepmother in ‘Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella.’ Personally, Sherri’s life remains complicated. The son she and estranged husband Lamar Sally were expecting via surrogate was born yesterday. RELATED: There’s a surprising twist in the brewing custody battle between Sherri Shepherd and Lamar Sally.

Sherri hasn’t spoken about the baby’s birth (in all fairness, he was born yesterday afternoon, after ‘The View’ aired), but she did talk about her new Broadway role on ‘The View’ yesterday with a pair of glass slippers on the table in front of her.

I am excited. I’m so nervous. I can’t fit these glass slippers. I am playing Madame, the evil stepmother to Cinderella.”

Exciting! Yesterday afternoon another event that would normally be considered even more exciting occurred: a baby was born! The surrogate for Sherri and Lamar gave birth yesterday, according to TMZ. Lamar was at the hospital for the birth; Sherri was not.

Sherri is trying to argue to have her parental rights waived; she claims Lamar defrauded her into having a baby with the plan to divorce her and hit her up for child support payments. Lamar wants primary custody, but he still wants Sherri to pay him child support. Given that Lamar filed for separation before the baby even arrived, I can see Sherri’s point. Biologically, Lamar is the father, but a donor egg was used, so it all comes down to whether or not the surrogacy agreement is upheld or not. Hopefully Lamar really does want to raise his son because it looks like he’ll be doing it solo.

Liberty Ross & Rupert Sanders’ divorce finalized, she walked away with mad $$$

wenn5855575

Who’s the baddest bitch in all the land? Liberty Ross. I think we’ve pretty much established that by now. Liberty Ross split with her husband Rupert Sanders as soon as the Mini Coopering photos came out in July 2012. They separated and Rupert sort of spun out of control and the media-management aspect of things collapsed, which was both Rupert and Kristen Stewart’s fault. They didn’t coordinate their messages correctly and Rupes and K-Stew came out of that affair looking like reckless jackasses. She didn’t work for a year. He hasn’t gotten hired for a feature-length film since.

But Liberty (and Robert Pattinson) came out of the scandal smelling like a rose. She had good PR. She didn’t bitch and moan. She didn’t throw a pity party. She started scheduling modeling work here and there. Some “tips” were given to various media outlets. When she did speak, it was all very vague. At some point, Liberty started dating Jimmy Iovine (who is super-rich). Then six months exactly after the Mini Cooper photos came out, Liberty filed for divorce. She hired super-lawyer Laura Wasser. And now the divorce has come through (two years exactly since the scandal) and Liberty got a lot.

Two years after he was caught in a cheating scandal with Kristen Stewart, director Rupert Sanders’s divorce from Liberty Ross has been finalized, PEOPLE has confirmed.

In court papers filed in L.A. on Wednesday, Ross, 35, gets the couple’s home in L.A. and an apartment and house in London, as well as 15 percent of the profits on films Sanders makes and one-half of his residuals on Snow White and the Huntsman. The model and actress was also awarded spousal support of $25,000 a month until June 2018 or she remarries.

The couple will have joint custody of their children, Skyla, 9, and Tennyson, 7, but Ross will also receive $14,000 a month in child support.

Ross and Sanders, 43, split in 2012 after the British director was photographed snuggling with Stewart, 24, whom he directed in Snow White.

“I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family,” Sanders told PEOPLE in an exclusive statement in July 2012. “My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart.”

Ross, who appeared in flashbacks as the mother of Stewart’s character in Snow White, filed for divorce in January 2013.

[From People]

I’m glad that Liberty got so much, but I also wondered… how in the world is Rupert going to pay her $39,000 a month? He doesn’t make that kind of money. He’s barely worked in the past two years. Did he have a lot of money saved up? Huh. Still, the homes in London and LA… good deal. TMZ says that Rupert only walked away with the Malibu home (I guess he does have money) and “a 1970 VW van.” Sure. Plus, Liberty is getting half of the bank accounts and half of his retirement account. Get it. Good for her.

Sherri Shepherd doesn’t want to pay for the baby that her surrogate is carrying

wenn5669602

Sherri Shepherd’s life is a mess these days. It’s actually quite scandalous, or it would be if more people gave a crap. First, Sherri’s husband Lamar Sally filed for separation suddenly, announcing that he was seeking full custody of their as-yet unborn child, who is currently gestating in a surrogate. Then TMZ claimed that Lamar and Sherri’s marriage was super-bizarre, that he wanted all of these strange (and gross) provisions in their pre-nup and wedding vows. Then, Sherri got fired from The View, so she’s not going to have much money coming in these days. All of those events have led to this… Sherri is not interested (at all) in the baby that the surrogate is carrying. She doesn’t want anything to do with that baby.

Sherri Shepherd does not want anything to do with her unborn surrogate baby … because she believes her estranged husband defrauded her into having the kid in the first place so he could get child support … this according to multiple sources connected with the couple.

TMZ broke the story … Sherri and her husband Lamar Sally each separately filed legal docs to end their marriage. The big complication — a baby will be born this month to a surrogate who signed a contract with Sherri and Lamar.

Now our sources say … the baby was conceived with Lamar’s sperm, but NOT Sherri’s egg. Now here’s where it gets tricky. We’re told Sherri does not want custody or even to be considered a parent … because she doesn’t want to get stuck with massive child support payments.

Sherri wants a judge to rule she has no parental rights or responsibilities — which would shut the door to child support. She claims Lamar defrauded her — that he got her to sign on for a surrogate birth knowing full well he would divorce her and then nail her to the wall for child support.

Our Lamar sources say Sherri tried to get pregnant in vitro and when it didn’t work she got deeply involved in the surrogacy process. Another twist … Sherri has filed for divorce in New Jersey and Lamar has filed in California. This is not a coincidence. We did some digging, and found New Jersey courts generally do NOT recognize surrogacy agreements, which means Lamar would probably be shut down. Not so in Cali.

[From TMZ]

Good God this is messy. I don’t even have any idea what the legal precedent for this kind of thing would be – it seems like it would depend on the validity of the written contract that Sherri and Lamar signed with the surrogate. But it also sounds like Sherri might be right – that this was all some kind of super-shady plot by Lamar to get that money. Well… I hope they have good lawyers. Because this is going to be a trainwreck.

SHERRI SHEPHERD Surprising Twist In Custody Case

Sherri Shepherd Visits "Good Morning America"Oh boy. I didn’t see this coming. Remember how Sherri Shepherd’s husband, Lamar Sally, hightailed it from their home in New Jersey to California and filed for a legal separation? He also requested primary custody of their unborn child, who is due to be born via surrogate this month. If Lamar won primary custody of their child (a boy), he would then be entitled to child support. Now Sherri’s response has come out in her own legal docs (filed in New Jersey), and it’s a doozy. RELATED: Custody battles loom for Sherri Shepherd.

TMZ reports that sources close to Sherri say she does not custody of the child or even to be considered the baby’s parent, which would mean she has no legal obligation to pay child support. Sherri supposedly is arguing in her divorce documents (which were filed in New Jersey, where the couple actually lived with her son Jeffrey) that Lamar “defrauded” her into having the child for the sole purpose of divorcing her and then getting child support from her.

Apparently, the baby was conceived with Lamar’s sperm but not Sherri’s egg, so while he has a biological tie to the child, she does not. Which state (New Jersey vs California) hears this case is crucial, too. Although the surrogate signed an agreement with Sherri and Lamar, New Jersey courts apparently don’t recognize surrogacy agreements, while California does.

I have to admit, when I first read this story, my jaw just about dropped. The instinctive reaction (at least mine) is: Sherri’s abandoning her baby? As I think about it, however, it makes sense. Lamar’s actions certainly seem suspect to me. She’s also fighting for custody of her older son, Jeffrey, with her ex-husband. And Sherri’s leaving ‘The View,’ so she’s probably about to take a big hit in her earnings anyway. Given all that’s happening, it sounds like Sherri is focused on trying to keep things together with herself and her son Jeffrey. Yet I’m still just… shocked.
