I gotta hand it to Jason Hoppy -- he's one dude who really knows how to play the sympathy card. He and Bethenny Frankel filed for divorce back in December, and throughout all of it, he's managed to look like the good guy. His latest feat? Jason was spotted earlier this week still wearing his wedding ring.
I don't know whether to give this guy a hug or a high-five -- does he deserve our sympathy or our congratulations on manipulating the entire situation? I think you know what side Bethenny comes down on ...
A source told RadarOnline that Bethenny's pissed he hasn't taken off his wedding band:
Bethenny just can’t understand why Jason is still wearing his wedding ring! It makes absolutely no sense to her because they have zero plans for reconciliation. Bethenny thinks he’s doing it to garner sympathy and to appear as the wounded party.
Apparently, Jason says he's still wearing the band so that their 2-year-old daughter Bryn doesn't get confused, but as most parents know, a child her age wouldn't notice, care, or question where Daddy's ring went ... leading me to believe Jason's still wearing it for a couple of reasons, not the least of which is getting under Bethenny's skin.
Who knows, though. Maybe he's got a nasty mole on his left ring finger that he likes to keep covered up. Maybe he's still hoping to get back together with his wife. Maybe he's a maniacal media manipulator trying to get everyone on his side.
Whatever the reason, Jason's going to have to shed the jewelry sooner or later ... no time like the present, bro. No time like the present.
Why do you think Jason's still wearing his wedding ring?
