Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy are happily married. Although they had been the target of divorce rumors, they have finally put them to rest and Bethenny is now opening up about their not-so-typical marriage and making us wonder, is having an open marriage what is keeping them together?
In a sneak peek at today’s episode of her talk show, Bethenny, she reveals that she has the hots for actor Taylor Kitsch — and not only that. She also reveals that since she and her husband have made a deal regarding ‘free passes,’ she’s technically allowed to sleep with him!
Taylor will be appearing on her show today and Bethenny isn’t hiding her feelings. She gushes, ”I’m like a deer that just lost its footing. I love him. He’s everything. And if he would have me, I’m allowed,” she said. ”I’m allowed to have a free pass…I love you… I love my husband, but we’re like also soul mates.”
Having ‘free passes’ may be something couples talk about as a fantasy, but Bethenny and Jason’s fantasies could easily become a reality because of the business they are in. Regarding their open marriage and free passes, Bethenny explains, ”Jason and I talk about it. Coco (Austin) was on the show and I literally drunk a drink off her a** and he changed his list,” Bethenny revealed to her audience. ”It used to be Angelina Jolie and now she’s the one if he were allowed to have a night… But, I wonder would he go all the away? Would he really do it? I think I would have to allow him…”
The question of ‘would he really do it’ is certainly a big one. Is the concept of an open marriage something that Bethenny and Jason would actually participate in or is just knowing they are ‘allowed’ to sleep with someone other than their spouse enough?
What do you think? Is having ‘free passes’ a good idea, or is it just something fun to fantasize about? Is it fair to have celebrity free passes if you’re a celebrity yourself? If you discuss this with your partner, do you think you would really allow them to go all the way if Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie showed up wearing nothing but a bathrobe?
