“We have love and respect for one another and will continue to amicably co-parent our daughter [Bryn] who is and will always remain our first priority,” Bethenny continued. “This is an immensely painful and heartbreaking time for us.”

“I am heartbroken. I am sad. We will work through this as a family.” she tweeted earlier in the day.

Bethenny and Jason were together for two years.

    That’s sooo sad. He’s such a nice guy and they are actually perfect for each other but Bethenny I think doesn’t know how to be loved and is used to be a strong woman on her own. Probably due to the fact she had a terrible mother.

    of course. bethenny is a seriously damaged woman and i don’t think she has the ability to be married.

    jason was way too nice for her.

    Yes, it's sad Says:

    Oh my my! I thought they would make it. He is such a great catch! But I believe they never had a lot in common. They also come from different worlds. Well, now she knows what it’s like to be married. At least she got the chance. Just sad to see a split when there is a child involved. I think her career and the fact that she was the major breadwinner was too much for him to take. I think a real man is usually like that. He wants to be the man in the family. He wants his wife to look up to him, respect him. However, they did make the vows. This is where for better or for worse kicks in. Bethenny will likely have her “down” periods in the future. She won’t always be out there in front of everybody. That’s when a good husband is your best friend and companion. This sucks!

    This is not an excuse for her.

    That's not an excuse Says:

    @ok?: There are lots of damaged people out there. Joyce Meyer, the Christian minister/writer/speaker was sexually abused by relatives and she was a complete mess, but she married a great guy and they have been married forever.——- These people just cannot stay committed. They break their commitments when things don’t feel right. They throw in the towel. When people are committed, they stay. Even people in lousy relationships stay together when they are committed. But Bethenny and her husband should be committed and also working to make things better because they are both special people with good hearts.

    That blows! He was soo good for her. I hope they reconcile, even though they probably won’t. It sucks, cause he did seem a little jealous of her success… ughh this is why you shouldn’t have a newlywed show! It is a curse!

    Hot Mess Says:

    Having known Bethenny several years ago, she is a truly sad and desperate woman. All she ever wanted was fame – at any cost. She will step on anyone in her way. She is beyond grating and has never been able to keep a friendship with anyone once she gets what she needs from them. I am surprised she has done as well as she has but her TV show was awful as she is out of her comfort zone and appeared beyond uncomfortable with the format. I can guarantee it will be off the air within a year. She is gross, nasty and a complete B-I-T-C-H. Trust me, I’ve had first hand experience with her and am glad I no longer do.

    WT??? Says:

    She found a man that loves her and supports her career. So not true that strong women can’t be in a relationship. Truth is you can have it all. You may not have it at the same time, but you can have a family, career. It happens. It takes work and compromise. I don’t think she knows how to compromise.

    Such a shame. And all those public denials and statements. Pap walks to say we are together.

    an opinion Says:

    If you watch her show it showed that she could not let things go. Bethenny needs to find a guy who has dealt with dysfunctional families. Jason came from a different world than Bethenny and probably could not handle it. Sad because they seem like a great couple.

    The word is that she has an out of control eating disorder and is bulimic. Hope she gets some help for her daughter’s sake.

    Ginger Says:

    She is so controlling just by watching her show. I don’t blame Jason one bit if he was the one that decided to end this marriage.

    i don’t blame Jason either for getting out…..he is such a good guy…and a good dad…..bethany is a fool…and will never find such a nice guy again….. Jason..on the other hand will have many nice girls to meet..and i’m sure he will marry, and have more children with a calm, nice girl who isn’t looking to control him…..poor guy couldnt even see his own parents when he wanted to……Jason…i’m sure u r sad right now…but u will be soooo much better off with someone else…soon!!

    @Yes, it’s sad: FYI, she was married before she married him! still sad though…

    Theres no use in saying it was one persons fault. Its always two peoples faults in a divorce. From watching their show since season 1, it was obvious they came from completely different worlds. And they got pregnant and married so quick and with all the excitement they probably thought they were right for each other despite all of their differences. But once all that excitement fades and you’re left just being married in the real world, its a lot less glamorous. Bethenny had issues but so did Jason. He clearly did not support her success fully. Also, their communication styles were different. Yes, Bethenny is loud and blunt. But thats who she always was. He married her knowing that. Thats not an excuse. They clearly are just not meant for each other and if you watched their show, that was apparent in the later seasons once they settled into married life. Its a shame but it happens!

    Lizzy7 Says:

    Heartbroken and sad? About what, Bethenny? YOU are the sole reason for the split. Someday you’ll realize your husband and child were more important than your selfish self-absorbed life. But by then, the damage will already be done. Poor Bryn. She’ll never be the person she would have been had you stayed together. :(

    .. Says:

    @ok?: that is the most ignorant comment.. ever. She was abused and abandoned as a child – none of that was her fault. You need to be a lot more sensitive in your wording. Typical of women to blame women in this situation but considering we don’t ACTUALLY know what either of them are like we need to stop judging her..

    It’s his fault for knocking her up in the first place. They hardly knew each other. This was always a ticking time bomb from day one. I feel bad for the baby girl. HIs parents are great. I wonder how upset they are about this? What a shame.
    Is this Bethenny’s Xmas gift to Jason?

    Celebs always release news like this around the Christmas holiday. Most of the media is on vacation thus less people getting in their faces. By the time things are back to normal (after the new year day) this story will be old news.

    Jo Says:

    That’s just sad cause I love Bethenny. In the last season of her show we saw that they had serious issues and seemed like they couln’t get over them. It’s just sad.

    Can’t blame Jason for bailing. I wouldn’t be able to put up with that condescending Queen ***** either.

    My Take Says:

    Bethenny has a lot of damage from her childhood. That’s why she acts the way she does — kind of cold and aloof. Not a very warm person. Funny, yes, but not too warm. It takes a very strong man to deal with a woman like that. When she feels insecure and threatened, she will lash out and shut down — cut him out. I’ll bet her mouth is a mean disaster during fights. I believe that she alone could keep this together if she would back down and realize that he’s probably the best man she will ever get. She needs to get her priorities straight. I don’t believe in begging men, but in this case, I would. I would beg this man to not leave me (like Pink’s song says). I think if she would stop fighting back and show her real hurt and vulnerability to this sweet man, he would stay. He had good values like that. He probably also needs to get counseling to help him deal with her moods in the future. They need to put everything else on hold and hold onto this marriage.

    Did Bethenny announce this on Dec. 23 because Santa Claus was getting more attention than Bethenny? She can earn billions but it will not make her happy.
