For the life of her, Bethenny Frankel can't figure out why her and Jason Hoppy's divorce is resembling anything other than hug therapy. When she released the statement about she and Hoppy trying to "amicably coparent" their toddler daughter, Bryn, after the split, she truly believed it would be the case. But now that they're in the throes of divorce, everyone's lost their manners and Frankel feels like a fool for ever having said that in the first place. "I really did think it would be amicable. I absolutely did," Bethenny said. "I wrote that entire statement myself. And every single word, I believed to be true."
Welcome to the Real World, Bethenny -- where people stop being polite.
It's a shame the way things are going down with Bethenny and Jason, really it is. The person who's going to wind up suffering the most is most likely their adorable daughter. But I have to say: I'm a little shocked that Bethenny's shocked that things aren't moving along peachy keen. She's a smart woman, and I mean, she and Jason couldn't get along while they were married. What would make her think things would go down otherwise? And aren't they both vying for sole custody? How could that possibly end of amicably? I guess you believe what you want to believe.
I hope it's not the case, but something tells me that Bethenny and Jason's divorce is only going to get nastier as time goes on. Thus far, we've heard some pretty scathing things about the two of them; things they both will probably be embarrassed about in the future. I can't imagine it's easy going through what they are, but if they want what's best for Bryn, they're both going to have to bend a bit. It can't only be one person's way. No one wins in that situation -- especially the kid.
