Please say it ain't so? I've watched while Jason tried to understand Bethany's background and given his support. My hubby and I are in the middle of a huge fight right now. In fact the dog is shaking in the corner as I type but, we've been together for 25 years and the "D" word never came up. I hate to admit it but I think Bethenny needs more counseling. I'm sure she is the one who has given up on the relationship and not Jason. All couples fight. Please Bethenny give the guy a chance!

Say it ain't so? I loved these two together. Jason had so much patience for Bethanny and her issues. I have a lot of baggage as well and right now my hubby is out of here... on the couch or floor which ever he prefers LOL :-). Now a days it's so easy to use the "D" word. Have they tried counseling... Magic Mushrooms.... Pot...... LOL ;-)
Please dont' give up on each other!

Jason reminds me so much of an ex-boyfriend of mine almost to a tee ..... totally PASSIVE-AGGRESSIVE!!

Bethenny surely is tough to live with ... but I can assure you that Jason is not the "great perfect guy" that so many are making him out to be. Any astute observation would clue you in on that.

No wonder she said no way to Andy Cohen when he asked if she was going to have more kids just the other day on WWHL. On another note, her Skinny Girl drinks absolutely suck. They taste like watered down cheap alcohol. Nasty nasty stuff.

This was just a matter of time, this marriage...
Money does NOT buy you happiness...
But Bethenny does have a DESTRUCT button when it comes to her relationships.

Duh    

Thank god for Jason's sake. I don't think she can intake oxygen unless a complaint is part of her exhale.

Duh    

Jason is so sexy, funny, and sweet. His parents just wanted to love her too. Her whining constantly about being "tortured" is so annoying. Look, Bethenney, we all had a ****ty childhood. We all work hard. We all dream of success. You got half a billion dollars and a stupid talk show. That's more than anyone dreams of. You need to shut that hole in your face, get some perspective, and remember that you are not Oprah. Humility will help you.

Duh    

Also, you are the epitome of the phrase "Bitch Face". Loosen those muscles up a little by not being a bitch all of the time.

NOOOO! Please say it ain't so! I've loved these two together. He seemed to be so sympathetic about her past. Me and my hubby of 25 years just got into a huge argument, it's probably from the stess of Christmas but, he is definately sleeping on the couch or floor which ever he prefers. I hate this. No matter how hard it get's for any couple you can't give up. Never, ever use the "D" word. What went wrong?
