They filed for divorce around Christmas, but now, four months later, Bethenny Frankel's husband Jason Hoppy is still wearing his wedding ring. He was just photographed in a New York City park playing with their almost-3-year-old daughter Bryn with the iconic symbol of marriage on his left hand.
When Jason was caught wearing his wedding band just weeks after it was announced that he and Bethenny were calling it quits, everyone was like, aww, poor guy, he's not ready to move on yet. Now, everyone's all like, what's with this guy.
And by everyone I hope I just don't mean me, but it's possible. Moving on.
There are probably a billion (or at least 10) reasons that Jason's keeping his wedding bling on, but let's focus in on the two most likely. One, he's a genius martyr who knows how to play the press. A shot of Jason still wearing the ring is a check plus in his corner as fans sympathize with him and take this very nebulous sign to mean that he's still devoted, that he's not broken, that he's a strong, romantic man worth admiring. He's cultivated an image and the ring is at the center of it.
Or two, he's one of the handful of people left in the nation who take marriage very seriously. Unlike Kim Kardashian, or Bethenny, for that matter, who's been rumored to be seeing billionaire Warren Lichtenstein, Jason believes he's still married until he's officially divorced. He's going to uphold those damn vows he took until they're expressly declared null and void. He's really just that moral.
I'm going to go ahead and say that he's a master media manipulator. I mean, come on. That's gotta be it.
You know what they say, don't hate the player, hate the game. Do you, Jason. Do you.
What do you think?
