I'm sorry to report, Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy relations appear to be at an all-time low. It's a bit chilly between these two battling parents. How chilly? Glaciers impervious to global warming chilly. Avoiding eye contact chilly. Yeah, it's that bad. According to a witness, when Jason and Bethenny met in court the other day they couldn't even bring themselves to look each other in the eyes.
The witness says,
They completely avoided eye contact and communication despite being within three feet of each other. As Bethenny made her way past Jason, he put his head down and busied himself on his phone. He couldn't bring himself to look at her.
When they were finally dismissed after an hour and a painful half they both got out in a hurry -- especially Bethenny, the source says.
Ooh, avoiding eye contact. That is one of the biggest signs of repressed contempt there is. That's what you do when you know just looking at someone is going to set off a nuclear warhead. I'm so sorry it's still this bad. It's been a year and things are still so tense between these two. Poor Bryn! Jason and Bethenny are supposed to be co-parenting. They were supposed to stay friends.
Is there just too much money at stake for Bethenny and Jason to reach harmony?
I don't know what it's going to take to get these two to stop hating each other. Maybe the damage is permanent. I can see how it could take several months for a divorcing couple with children to heal their wounds and move forward. But this? Time does not seem to be healing anything at all.
And if time isn't changing anything, I don't know what else could. Maybe when Bryn is a little older she'll be able to say something that will melt her parents hearts. But until then, it looks like Bethenny and Jason are permanently frozen in frostville.
Do you think Jason and Bethenny will ever reconcile enough to at least be civil with each other?
