In the middle of reports surfacing that Bethenny is driving her husband towards divorce– she takes it to her blog to let fans know what’s really going on behind closed doors.

Bethenny Frankel knows a thing or two about tough love.

The 41-year-old took it to her blog to reveal the truth behind recent separation rumors with husband Jason Hoppy.

“I know you have all been worried about my relationship, and the show got off to an emotional rocky start, but isn’t life like that? Sometimes we cringe, sometimes we get anxiety, but ultimately, we buckle up, hold on, and get to the next place,” Bethenny wrote on her blog March 27. “I love my husband and my family. Relationships may not have always been my strong point, but I am dedicated to my marriage, to being a better person every day, and to being open and honest in the hopes of helping myself — and hopefully many of you.” previously reported that Bethenny’s need for control has been the constant in the demise of her past relationships.

“She has a history of bossing around her boyfriends until they snap and can’t take it anymore, and then she tries to come off like the victim!” a source told us.

And Life & Style magazine recently reported it’s become so bad between her and Jason that he recently moved out of their Tribeca pad and checked into the nearby Cosmopolitan Hotel.

We hope they are working out their kinks and we totally appreciate Bethenny’s honesty on her blog.

What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Will Bethenny and Jason be able to overcome these troubled times? Vote and weigh in below.

While forgiving her mother may be helpful in Bethenny’s relationships, Karen, not everyone is able to let go and forgive….it’s a process and a journey without a timeframe. For some it takes a lifetime. In some ways forgiveness is sort of a gift but for many the key to forgiveness is understanding. Bethenny very clearly does not have that in regards to or specifically from her mother. To toss around “you must let go and forgive” type talk is not only damaging but sort of abusive in a sense… and you probably didn’t intend to come off that way I’m sure… just please be aware that we all operate differently. You cannot command emotion regardless of how promising and crucial it is. Consider yourself blessed to have experienced a shorter journey. I think Bethenny & Jason are going to make it- he may get frustrated with her but he seems to cherish her and the family they’ve created….. look at how much he clearly adores his parents & what they have molded for him. Bethenny needs constant affirmation that she is going to be ok (can’t blame her with the history she’s had). Once he gets the hang of that it’ll be smoother sailing.

i was only briefly a fan of bethenny, but maybe i’ll become one again. she is definitely an imperfect individual like the rest of us. i never understood her NEED to fit in with some of those housewives… rather, i understood it, but was frustrated that at her age she hadn’t moved beyond that emotion. now, i don’t watch her show, but i can ‘get’ what she’s saying and these comments. it’s hard when you’ve gone through a life where your parents were not there for you, to then become a person who allows yourself to be vulnerable to and depend on another person. and, if you’re so busy keeping yourself self-sufficient and independent, it doesn’t much for a relationship make… can totally relate. i admire her resolve to try to keep her family together, and her ability to appreciate that this isn’t going to come naturally to her. if jason is patient, it might all work out still.

unlike you I have always liked Bethenny exactly because of her honesty, she knows she is not perfect and doesn’t pretend to be, she knows she has issues from her childhood and so does Jason, if they work together to communicate better, then they have hope.

Her parents gave her a prep school education, food and shelter–come on folks..horses, etc…most of us had to work hard for an education, public schools, etc.–now in order for her to ever be happy__stop going to that shrink, forgive her mother–make up with her, or she will never be happy!! That doctor is doing her no good…constantly crying about her upscale childhood__I was raised by grandparents, worked my way thru college, taught school for 35 years, retired__have wonderful grandchildren now….forgiveness is the key, please Bethanny..then a great weight will be lifted…money can’t lift it! Hate hurts the hater more than the hated!! Free yourself. God Bless!!!!!!
