More dramatic accusations have surfaced as Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy's long-lasting divorce proceedings continue.
In the latest round of reported revelations from the former Real Housewives of New York star, Frankel revealed in court Wednesday that living in the same apartment with Hoppy after they separated was "brutal, horrendous, excruciating." "He would not let me be alone with [our daughter] Bryn in the apartment," she added.
Frankel reportedly claimed that Hoppy would follow and watch her when she was lying in bed with Bryn or trying to give the now 4-year-old a bath.
The 43-year-old former talk show host says she stopped picking up and dropping off Bryn with Hoppy. "Now I ask [my assistant] Leslie to do the exchange, because Jason will make faces at me and say [to Bryn], 'I'm sorry you have to go with Mommy,'" Frankel claims. "I don't think it's good for Bryn to be around that kind of stress and anxiety."
Frankel also alleges that Hoppy mistreated her dog Cookie. "I found out that Jason locked Cookie in the storage unit in our apartment with her dog bed and bowl," she said.
Frankel also says Hoppy took Cookie to a pet hotel in NYC and "wouldn't tell me or my assistant where she was until after midnight."

Frankel also claimed Hoppy wrongly accused her of withholding medicine from Bryn, taking sleeping medications while caring for Bryn and endangering her by taking Bryn to work events.
Earlier this week, during Frankel's testimony on Wednesday, Frankel quoted Hoppy as once saying to her following their split, "If you don't want to be with me and you're ending this marriage, I want nothing to do with you ever again. I'm going to destroy you."
However, Frankel also admitted to calling Hoppy "white trash." "I was so wrong about you. I didn't know you were all about the money," she quoted herself as saying to Hoppy.
Frankel and Hoppy announced their separation in December 2012.
