Two days before Christmas, Bethenny releases a statement that is floating around several sites saying that she and Jason are separating. I didn’t believe it. Mainly because I didn’t want to believe it. Unfortunately, it’s true. Bethenny has tweeted, “I am heartbroken. I am sad. We will work through this as a family.” I’m a bit sad too. I really had hoped that these two could work it out. Although there has been speculation about the marriage crumbling for months, I imagine the family drama surrounding Christmas had a lot to do with the final split. I’m sure Jason wanted to go home to his family and Bethenny didn’t. She seems to have major issues in family situations and Jason is super family friendly. Half my twitter TL is venting about attending family events this season and I’m personally boycotting. So I think a lot of us can understand if Bethenny was resistant.
Bethenny’s complete statement follows the page break.
Bethenny states, “It brings me great sadness to say that Jason and I are separating. This was an extremely difficult decision that as a woman and a mother, I have to accept as the best choice for our family. We have love and respect for one another and will continue to amicably co-parent our daughter who is and will always remain our first priority.This is an immensely painful and heartbreaking time for us.”
I sort of hope after the holiday stress blows over they can try again. What do y’all think about the news?
