Will Bethenny Frankel End Up Like Her Mother, Bernadette Burke?

As Bethenny Frankel’s divorce to Jason Hoppy worsens, RadarOnline is exclusively reporting that Jason has told Bethenny if she doesn’t change her ways she is going to end up alone and miserable, like her estranged mother, Bernadette Burke. “Jason and Bethenny have been arguing incessantly and the divorce is definitely turning nasty,” a source close to the situation tells Radar. “Jason knows the subject of Bethenny’s mom is a trigger for her emotionally, she is always saying that she doesn’t want to end up like her and she views her with nothing but absolute disdain, she sees her as sad and lonely and isolated from the rest of the world.”

“Jason told Bethenny that if she isn’t careful Bryn could grow up to despise her, just like Bethenny does with her own mother! There’s no doubt it really hit a hot spot, Bethenny was hysterically yelling at Jason saying he hit below the belt,” the source continues.

Bethenny’s relationship with her estranged mother has been the subject on The Real Housewives of New York, as well as Bethenny’s Bravo spin-off show. Last year, Burke gave an exclusive interview to Star Magazine predicting Bethenny and Jason’s divorce.

“Jason’s too nice and she’ll grab another nice one, he is replaceable,” Burke said. “Nice is boring and Bethenny gets bored with nice. I know she is bored because I get bored watching him. She cheated on her first husband after her first couple of months of marriage.  She doesn’t have any respect for marriage because she has never seen good marriages.”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.

    Jason is dead on with his statement – Bethany needs to think this thru. If she takes that baby to CA and it is hard for her to see her dad – Bethany will pay a big price. Bethany looks awful. She needs to get her weight in order- she looks like she is suffering from an eating disorder and, I do not think she is as emotionally stable as Jason – for that reason alone, I hope that child is ordered to be 50/50 custody if not more time with Jason and her grandparents.

    Jason is absolutely right. Her mother was absolutely right. Its funny how Bethany really is living in her mothers shoes. You know the old saying,”YOU LIVE WHAT YOU LEARN “. Apparently bethany is not as strong as she pretends to be. Giving into her inability to love and be loved. She really should never get married. It will never work. She is damaged to her core and she is way to analytical of every situation. Hey Bethany, Live and Let Live, its not all about you ya know.

    Just by saying that Bethenny is “going to end up like her mother” shows me that Jason is not Mr. Perfect and his does hit below the belt. If Bethenny has an eating disorder, which actually a self image perception, I doubt very much she will put that on her daughter. I’m sure Bethenny loves her daughter as much as Jason and will do everything in her power to ensure Bry has a healthy body image.

    I don’t normally comment, but the constant bashing of person no one actually “knows” I find very sad. No one knows what went on behind closed doors when the camera was not rolling.

    I have been pro Bethenney until the divorce. She has everything she ever wanted; a husband, daughter, and money, but she still isn’t happy. At some point you have to realize that a person has had so much abuse that nothing is going to fix them. It is sad and at that point the healthiest of the parents should have custody of the child.

    Denise-You are so spot on! We have seen Jason on their Bravo show be quite cruel to Bethanny-calling her dammaged!!
