Their marriage has been over for more than a year, but Bethenny Frankel's ex-husband Jason Hoppy can't let go. When Bethenny and Jason announced their separation (followed in rapid succession by their plans to divorce), their fans took the news badly. After all, ardent Bethenny supporters (myself included) had watched her work through her issues in a bid to find real and lasting love. To hear it was all falling apart was just genuinely sad.
But I think we all assumed -- just like Bethenny must've -- that while the separation would be painful for all parties involved, both she and Jason would move on with their lives and find the happiness they both deserved. But then things got weird. Like when news broke that Jason was refusing to move out of the apartment that he and Bethenny shared.
Even this was sort of understandable. After all, though their marriage might be ending, they're going to spend the rest of their lives as co-parents to their baby girl Bryn -- it makes a certain amount of sense that Jason would want to stick around to make sure he got the time he needed with his daughter.
But it's become clear that there's more to this than just Jason being an excellent papa (no doubts that he is). Jason can't seem to let go of Bethenny. There's a fine line between being a dyed-in-the-wool romantic, eager to do whatever it takes to win back the woman you love -- and being a creep whose behavior only seems to prove Bethenny right for choosing to end things in the first place.
Do you think Jason's being pathetic or sweet?
