I knew it was only a matter of time before the rumor mill started churning out stories about Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy calling it quits. But it pains me nonetheless.
A new report is claiming that Jason and Bethenny's relationship has gotten really bad, and Jason's reached his breaking point. Recently, he, allegedly, stormed out of their brand new $5 million loft -- with daughter Bryn in tow -- and shacked up at nearby hotel to avoid spending another minute with his reality star wife. A source claims that Jason's over Bethenny's diva ways, saying, “He can’t take it anymore, so he’s been doing everything on his own.”
Really, guys? It's come to this already? You haven't even been together that long! The heck?
I honestly don't know who to believe in this whole mess. I mean, on one hand, Jason does seem like a really nice guy -- and you never see this alter-ego of his Bethenny (constantly) speaks of. On the other, Bethenny constantly speaks of this alter-ego. There has to be some truth to it, right? I mean, I certainly don't think the guy is a monster, but he can't possibly be smiles and roses all the time. If he is, then I guess Bethenny is flat-out nutso-burgers.

Regardless of who's right and who's wrong, though, there was a point when they were really good together -- cute, in fact. How could they have gone from that to ... this in such a short period of time? It doesn't make any sense. Reality TV has to be the thing to blame.
Since the beginning, Bethenny and Jason's relationship has been documented on TV. Every aspect of it. Their courting. Their wedding planning. Their wedding. The birth of their child. And now the aftermath. How could they possibly function as a normal couple with cameras shoved in their face 24:7?
Look, it sounds like both these crazy kids have things they need to change about themselves -- it can't all be one person. But I do think Bethenny needs to cut Jason a little bit of slack. It literally is all about her, all the time. I don't think many people could handle that -- especially her.
It'd be a damn shame if B and J broke up -- especially for their adorable little daughter. Hopefully they'll both just get over themselves and do what's right for their family.
Would you be bummed if Bethenny and Jason broke up?
