It didn't sound like it got better, you just accepted it because he was the bread winner...as most women are expected to do...but the problem is that the owner of the business did not take the initiative to train an employee that could be trusted for him to be able to show his kids that they were as important as his work.....there are many smart reasons to do this and I am amazed at the smart business owners who risk losing everything to the control they want to keep, even for a week vacation.....no one plans for illness......when a man tells his wife she does not get it, they should respond with, right, I don't, teach me the business.....learn whether those calls to the loading dock are necessary or just to chat with the cute shipping clerk....Kristen better  wake up

Apparently nobody knows what its like to run or start a business.  For years my husband worked 14 hour days. Vacations were limited to long weekends and if we dared take the kids away for a full week, (thanks to cell phones) the office called constantly (try being at Disney World on line and dealing with delivery or trucking problems.) Still today after 24 years, dinner can be interrupted by a call from the West Coast or Canada. If you want to be successful and make big bucks, sometimes dinners are cold, dry or just plain crap. But I learned, nagging won't help, they just dig in their heels. Go with the flow it get better, mostly.

What Heather didn't say (wisely so)  was beyond knowing how an entrepeneur's mind works, she also has an awareness & sensitivity to the marital PARTNERSHIP she is in.  The fact that KT's relationship, or lack thereof, with her husband was such that he didn't discuss or forewarn his wife of the possibility that he would unilaterally divest himself of his current employment to pursue a start up, coupled with her unqualified acceptance of that occurring, characterizes the major imbalance & absence of mutual respect in their relationship.  KT expects HT to stand up for her after KT's 'bringing them up to speed' on how she's allowed her life with Josh to unfold, actually laid the foundation for why doing so would be foolish.  Only KT knows why she signed off on the f'd up terms of her 'relationship' with her husband, but she did.  Her expecting to re-negotiate terms that appear to have been a dictatorship from the jump, is as naive & ignorant a choice,  as agreeing to be treated that way in the first place.  If he's not willing to be accomodating EVER, and it becomes apparent that will not change, time to either stop whining/learn to live with it, or exit asap.

Mr Angry.......business ends when you walk through your door and greet your family...he needs to practice a balance between work and family and show more respect for Kristen......right now Kristen has a job she is a RHWONY and she is earning money...is she running a business... no does she need to.... no......every time Mr Angry starts yelling leave the room

Kristen has some growing up to do, but whether her ass of a husband is on a call or not...he owes his wife the courtesy he extends to others.  Building a business at the expense of your family speaks of narcissism...he also has things to learn about being a man.

After Josh told Kristen what she could do on her part to make him want to come home, she LISTENED and took action. The way he spoke to her on the phone was inexcusable. He's a JERK.

Kristin:  Your husband has singlehandedly ruined his best marketing opportunity -- you.  After watching his behavior on this show, I would NEVER EVER buy e-boost and would go out of my way to discourage others from doing so.

Kristen, you're exhausting to watch.You're a Debbie Downer who wants a pity party 24/7.  Your meanness and jealousy of Heather are very tiresome.

Kristen is just the typical stereotype of mean girls!! No wonder she was a model! So competitive , so mean and does not get that her "beauty does not keep her happiness! Kristen wake up, we don't need any more of your kind of girls.Stop being jealous of Heather.Maybe then you will see when she tries to be your fiend.

Watching the video with Kristen and her husband at dinner with Heather and Jonathon, I get the felling the Montana blwoout was payback for Heather agreeing with Josh at dinner. Wow.

I have tried to warm up to Kristen, but she is ridiculous in every way, that whiny face she makes constantly goes right through me! Please Bravo, just do away with both Kristen and Aviva!

I think Heather's husband is adorable and seems very supportive.  Every time I see him I think of Mark Ruffalo!

@susanzavagli His behavior this early in the game regarding his priorties are a recipe for full on failure with his marriage

@randrew why do you think Kristen is jealous of Heather??? Heather is an annoying, loud-mouth know-it-all. She can't ever admit when she's wrong and has to dominate everyone. Isn't it possible that Kristen is just annoyed with her rather than "jealous'?? What is there to be jealous of???

@RitaAnn haha - nothing mean girl about Kristen OR Heather, but I think Kristen may have been displacing.

@Tracirk68 The genuine, in love expression on his face while Heather was on stage was beyond heartwarming.  Not merely the sharp, cultured,  handsome cutie-pie that he is, but a REAL keeper.  Someone KT & RS 's husbands might benefit learning from....BIG TIME.

@MissPuff @randrew Kristen annoyed?? I don't thinks so. She's the one that said Heather could do it all. Sounds/looks like jealousy to me.

I see it as Heather is  very confident.  She has already shown many times that she's a girl's girl ; but Kristen's husband is a real jerk and that's likely making Kristen a bit hyper-sensitive.
