I have to say I am very disappointed about the divorce. I have been married for 27 years, and I know there are times you want to KILL him, or when you can't find anything to talk about without fighting, or when you just don't like each other. We talked about divorce a few times when it got really rough, but we didn't do it. It's not all sunshine and roses, but I am a 48-year-old grandmother of three, and I get to watch the man I love and married be Papa to our precious grand kids. I always wanted to grow old with him, and sometimes I thought it was impossible. (Yes I know we're not old, but we are grandparenting together.) But you just stick to it. Two years? Unless there were really desperate circumstances, Bryn deserved better. Try to save your family. It's worth it in the end. And I say that with heartfelt respect and a true desire for you to have what I have.

YOU WEREN'T A MATCH BETHENNY! JASON IS VERY OLD SCHOOL WITH THE "HE SHOULD BE THE BREAD WINNER" ATTITUDE AND A VERY STRONG EGO. HE JUST COULDN'T "ACCEPT AND BLESS" YOUR SUCCESS. . . IT WAS AGAINST HIS NATURE. JASON FELL IN LOVE WITH YOUR FREE SPIRIT BECAUSE YOU WERE SO OPPOSITE TO HIM, BUT THEN HE COULDN'T HANDLE IT.
IT IS BEST FOR ALL OF YOU, ESPECIALLY YOUR PRECIOUS LITTLE GIRL, TO LIVE A PEACEFUL EXISTENCE.
I PRAY YOU WORK TOGETHER TO MAKE THIS TRANSITION AS EASY AS POSSIBLE FOR ALL OF YOU.

All marriages hit a rough spot. Dang I was hoping they could give more time,AND work through it, =(

Bethenny, you are so strong, funny and smart. As a fan, yes I was sad and disappointed to hear of your split from Jason. But it wasn't disappointment in you, just in that I, like so many others, wanted to see you get your "happy ending". However, I think it's safe to say you have your happy ending with Brynn. Thank you for being an inspiration. Keep it up! We love you!

i love how all these "mean girls" come on here and attack a self-made, confident, independent, wealthy, healthy, driven, kind-hearted woman. Just because we saw a "reality" show about her life doesn't mean we know everything about it. I loved Jason, but he wasn't always kind or understanding. He wasn't comfortable being with a woman that had her own mind and Bethenny definitely thinks for herself. Why do woman feel the need to be such caddy, judgemental bitches when someone is more successful or smarter than they are. Your pain in your sucky situation doesn't give you the right to attack a woman who is trying to build up and empower other woman. I believe she loves Jason and would rather have her family together but sometimes that just isn't possible. So to all the "mean girls".....shut the f**k up and go **ck yourselves. Your words against Bethenny don't change that your life sucks and that she is amazing!!!!!!

Wow, I have watched Bethany for a while now and what I have seen is a woman that would take anyone out for success and wealth, she got rid of the friends that put her in the public eye ei: Jill, and she is a control freak! if you do not do it her way, you are done...reminds me of oh, yea..Martha Stewart, my guess is she will die alone because she really does not know true love, she thinks she does, but with a selfish mother that raised her, she was not shown love and she did not learn how to share her life with anyone..including herself. I noticed that when she put him down for how he dressed (the jeans espisode), that to me is trying to change him, and that never works...xoxoxo glad she has the money to hold at night. : )

Agree with most of you ladies about the naieve view that marriage should last forever, otherwise it's your fault. That's unbelievable, why should someone be unhappy, and feel that they cannot be themselves in their relationship. No matter whether you love someone or not, if the relationship doesn't fit, then no-one should suffer through the pain of spending the rest of their lives unhappily together, is it still the 40s??

I wonder if Mrs Gordon would think marriage is wonderful, if one should stay, if one finds their husband of 25 years is cheating with their first girlfriend of 45 years ago! Really Mrs. Gordon, why do you think it's okay for you to judge one when you know nothing of their experiences? No one expects divorce and I can say it is one of the most painful situations I have ever experienced. I say that as one whose first husband of 14 years died at age 36 in an accident, then I beat Leukemia two years ago. I find divorce much harder than either of those challenges. Uenbelievable but true for me!
Mrs. Gordon, I am very happy for you that you have a great marriage, we all want that. It's very sad that women do not support all women.
I wish you the best Bethenny, and know that you will be fine, as I will be, because you are a fighter!

I would like to say to Vicki Gorden that you seem to be a mean old uptight woman who has no clue about being a independent modern woman. All woman have fallen in love with the Disney fantasy that some where a prince charming will ride to our rescue and save us from everything.WELL DISNEY LIED!!! Modern Independent women want a partner,a friend,someone who accepts our many flaws and loves us anyway. We also would choose to be alone and sad then trapped with someone who makes you feel more alone in a room full of people. So Vicki Please keep your 50s dream that your stuck being unhappy the rest of your life because you made a mistake. Please come down from your Ivory tower and join the REAL world with the rest of us modern women who know $?@#! HAPPENS. all we can do is clean up the pile and move on. Bethany your wonderful stay strong.

I know this sounds tough but I watched Bethenny from the beginning and felt her growing pains but sadly for me, I felt it was always about Bethenny and I waited for her to give as much to her partner as she expected from them and it was painful to watch her constant rejection from Jason and him having to fight to feel as much of a person as she. I am over Bethenny although habits are hard to break but nothing so far that I have seen feels like a good change.

Bethenny you are a wonderful mother and I am sure you did your best as a wife. If anything your marriage made a beautiful baby that you can both see grow :) Hope to see you on TV some more :)

I cannot believe the nerve of some of you! How about a little respect for Bethenny? Just because she has become successful and lives in the public eye, does not give you the right to scrutinize her or her marriage, it is honestly none of your business. I am sad that it did not workout because I really admire them both and they deserve to be happy. Bethenny is a great inspiration for women everywhere, showing us how determination and hard work can really pay off. She has also given us years of entertainment, she is one of the funniest and sharpest women on tv. Can you not respect her for that? That is what is wrong with this country, we feel as though it's completely acceptable to judge people, especially celebrities. Let he who is without sin, cast the first stone...

I hate when people like Vicki Gordon say, But we get through it because marriage has no other option but to stay married! That is such a load of crap. NO ONE should have to stay in a marriage, there are options. I am saddened when I hear of anyone getting a divorce but it is THEIR Business. No one has the right to judge.
