Oh boy! I just read a story in TMZ that says Jason is asking B for everything in the divorce that she's asking of him including primary custody of Brynn.
I think this is gonna be ugly.
Sometimes, parents who love their kids, don't put their needs first. I can see that being the case with Bethenny. From what the viewers have seen of their life, up close and personal, I would trust Jason to be the one who puts Bryn's needs ahead of his own. I can't say that with Bethenny.
I would also say part of this is probably legal maneuvering. I don't expect this case to see the light of a courtroom. It will be settled very quietly. JMO, but Bethenny seems very smart - I think she tried to play the pity card with her fans. Based on what has come out since and the tide of public opinion I have seen, I think she will make this go away very quietly and will play very nicely with Jason.
I hope so.
I hope Bethenny doesn't raise Bryn giving her every single material thing she wants, but yet being emotionally unavailable for her, due to her condition or whatever you call it. I can see her giving Bryn the best money can offer in toys, stuff, schools, clothes, nannies, etc., but not really being there for the small stuff. Kids have a way of blaming themselves for screwed up parents and trying to make it all better. I can see Bryn doing that too.
KatesMom, I know you would know more about this than me - I heard somewhere (maybe with the Katie Holmes / Tom Cruise divorce?) that legal custody terms sound more harsh than what is actually carried out in life. Is that true? I think I remember hearing that primary custody may SOUND like "child will live with this parent the majority of the time" but it is really more of a legal thing to determine who ultimately makes the final decisions relating to the child's life. Is that right or am I totally confusing things here?
I think Bethenny is a good mother, that is something I will give her credit for. I just think she has trouble in the relationship department. She & Jason are adults and are perfectly capable of dealing with the end of their marriage hopefully in peace & out of the public forum.
Agree but then again we don't know how much is put out by Bethenny's PR team & how much is just the opinion of an over zealous writer/editor. Fame is a greedy bugger.
