matching is for cowards

While inventorying my wardrobe for an upcoming trip, I wondered whether anyone wears matching 2 pieces anymore? Fit is infinitely more important than matching top to bottom.  I prefer to collect mismatched tops and bottoms on clearance during the off season.  Swimsuit styles barely change from year to year anyway.  Work a top/bottom combo that flatters your body.  The more random and contrasting the fabrics, the better. Even though they’ve made a major resurgence in the last decade, one pieces are still unexpected and super fun.  Keep at least one or two perfectly chic options around when you aren’t feeling a bikini. 

Bethenny dropped the sperm donor

In the least surprising news ever, Bethenny and Jason dropped the divorce bomb right before Christmas hoping to bury the story in eggnog.  Nice try.  We see you.  Here is the requisite carefully worded statement the couple released.

It brings me great sadness to say that Jason and I are separating.  This was an extremely difficult decision that as a woman and a mother, I have to accept as the best choice for our family. We have love and respect for one another and will continue to amicably co-parent our daughter who is and will always remain our first priority. This is an immensely painful and heartbreaking time for us.

The timing makes sense.  Best to file before that talk show money starts rolling in next year (though I strongly suspect that the rumored post-nup was indeed executed).  A completely baseless rumor floating around the internet was that Jason resented the financial agreement and it became one of many festering sores that eventually turned the whole relationship septic.  We all know that another point of contention in this relationship was Jason’s parents who will not be sorry to see Bethenny go.Want another tidbit of totally unsubstantiated gossip?  Rumor has it Bethenny doesn’t maintain her figure with a devotion to healthy eating.  Some say Jason was concerned how Bethenny’s laxative-loving behaviors might influence their daughter.  Again, this is probably just some baseless bullshit planted to discredit.  And you know I ain’t one to gossip, so you didn’t hear it from me….
