I hope he sues and gets custody of their daughter She is a nut job and that is not good for the kid and she would never let them see her grandparents.

Bethenny is doing the same thing to Bryn that Bethenny's family did to her. She is being extremely selfish. Money has gone to her head, plus fame. Poor Bryn.

I find it so funny that all of you are so full of hate to someone you don't even know personally!! You are all disgusting human beings. She is human and a heart wants what a heart wants or doesn't want. It's non of any of y'all's business. Get a life already. It's the holidays for one and for two...aren't there more important things in life to be angry at (26 people dead from a school shooting)? I can't believe the comments I am reading right now. I myself know how hard it is to keep relationships of any kind going when you have had such a rough childhood. Just give this poor lady and her family some slack and keep your nastiness to yourself!!!

I don't think Bethanny was ever really in love with Jason. She married him out of convenience because she was over 40 and pregnant. Hopefully they will both find partners that are a better fit for them because they were not compatible at all.

I feel the need to post. Only the two people in it know for sure and I am certain many stories will come forth. However I come from the area Jason does and I was getting very annoyed at her disrespect of his parents. They are truly nice people who do not deserve her treatment. Jason is also a good guy and while she thinks she has it all. She no longer does. Again only they know but her announcement timing also shows what she is. If nothing else she could have held off for the sake of her daughter at a magical time for a child that will always hold a tinge of sadness. If she is so heartbroken why is she on the streets for every photo opp? Even on Thanksgiving. Because she is a media monger who wanted to have the media portray her as the good mom. And I am sure she is but a mom needs to stay away from the cameras and protect her child. I just hope for the best for Jason and his family who are going through hell over this mess.

He's too cute for her anyway.

She's a NIGHTMARE! That squeaky voice and annoying temperament is enough to send any man running for the hills. Jason hits the lottery when they divorce and she will lead a very lonely existence due to her despicable persona. Good riddance loss at all.
