She continued by giving insight into the range of responses she’s gotten from those close to her. “I had friends basically tell me they would lose respect for me,” Jana said about reaction to her moving on from the marriage. “And those were the friends that were always like, ‘We would love you and support you no matter what.'”
Jana explained that “a few days before things came to light,” she was under the impression the relationship was still going strong.
“I am the weakest I’ve ever been,” she shared. “I went to my therapist a few weeks ago and being like, ‘Fine, I’ll live this life. I don’t want to break up my family.’ My whole thing is like, I didn’t want this for the kids. I’ve stayed for my kids, even when other things happened.”
Jana described a heartfelt conversation between the former couple that took place “a couple weeks prior” to the split. “He swore on his sobriety there was nothing,” she said. “Most of my sadness comes from my kids because they didn’t deserve this, they didn’t ask for this. And also the dream of what I thought it was going to be and who I thought I was working with.”
The star concluded the episode by expressing appreciation for fans who’ve been along this road with her. “I promise you every week will not be a sob show,” she said. “We’ll figure this out together. We’re on this journey together.”
