She's an *******. No one will ever put up with her ****. She's going to be like so many women living in manhattan. Their first love was greed and money therefore leaving them husband-less and lonely on Christmas. I'm all for women and their independence but her man was very good to her. She was a cold hearted bitch and he was a doormat. At her age, with her wrinkles, she should be glad that a man wants her that is good looking with a good job and is so family oriented. I was the biggest Bethenny fan. Although, seeing how she treated the guy on national tv and her greed for money and power is a huge turn off. She's going to get a big slap of reality when she sees her fans disappear and her ratings fall heavily. Funny how afraid she was going to be like her mom but she's exactly like her.

Jason was far to good for her - she is far to greedy and if he can't add to her image then to her he is useless - he deserves much better than Bethany - Bethany needs a total re-wire of her soul

The photo is very telling. I wish the best for Jason. As far as Bethenny is concerned, I used to be a fan but she is way too over driven and cannot imagine anyone living with her except for Cookie and Bryn.

This breakup upsets me, and i feel that they will get back together. He should have continued with his own career, and she should have run all of her enterprises without. Working together doesn't work. He's a very smart guy who proceeds at a slower pace than hyper Bethanny. He's a wonderful traditional guy, but Bethanny has lacked traditional experiences. To her, family traditions may be annoyances taking her away from things to which she must pay attention for business. Loved watching them. Hope they work it out.

The only thing that's going to be skinny after this divorce is her wallet. She's been a train wreck from
day one and treats him like crap. Like a two bit
servant who's job it is to bow to her every demand.
