It's sad~I think she is a really great person that CANNOT allow herself to be happy. She sabotages herself. It was evident on her show~which I do think was true reality. Jason is an AMAZING guy! I hope they can work it out. I'm sad for her. I think she is naturally thin~so the mean comments are pretty ugly : (

I watched their show, she treated the man like crap. I'm so not shocked by this, but sad for the child involved.

Seriously, she definately married up. Cut your losses and move on dude - you can do much better! Aren't her 15 minutes up yet? That joker face and skeletor body of hers are disturbing!

Don't feel too sorry for h, the 100 million dollar sale of Skinnygirl while he was married to her will be a nice concession. As if anybody with eyes couldn't see this coming!

Bethany is a condescending, controlling, cold woman. She never showed any REAL affection toward Jason or Bryn. I don't think she knows how to be truly happy. Jason will be better off without her, but she is a shrewd business woman who made very sure that he will receive as little as possible. Bethany always acted like Jason was less than her, rather than her life partner whom she loved and would share herself and her cash freely. Goes to show you that money can't buy happiness. Bethany may be rich, but she is bankrupt when it comes to happiness and satisfaction.

I think her first husband Peter Sussman is alot cuter and alot more her speed. This Jason seems like a stiff board. She said Jason was the love of her life but they never looked comfortable together. I think Peter really loved her and she would have eventually realized she had it good with him if she stayed. Now she is going to be alone with a little girl.


I don't think she is really comfortable with herself and doesn't accept herself for who she really is. There is something about her that always makes me feel uneasy. She needs a guy who can keep up with her mood swings and I don't think Jason would ever be even interested in putting up with that.

Bethenny I have waited years to say that from the moment you stood in your little red dress and coat, crying pififully to Jill Zarin that she has been mean to you on RHONY, it was obvious to me that you would just cherry-pick another individual after dumping her to advance your career then calling them your friend
So far you have gained your own show, a husband, child, millions of dollars....an esttranged mother, now an ex-husband to be, and alienated most of your friends...,do you feel rich, fulfilled, calm and happy? Got what you wanted....since dumping genuine authentic people who seemed to love you? Be careful Ellen, you think you know her but you don't. I would never watch this strident unhappy fake woman try way too hard to be funny again and again. She is over.

Yup    

Another narcissistic "reality" loser who's more in love with her own image than her husband. She has a special kind of sickness, and her soon-to-be ex is LUCKY to dump her self centered ugly ass...
