Naledi Ushey Jana Kramer discusses her upcoming marriage breakup after her husband cheated on her. She talks about the lead-ups leading to the split and shares details about her children.
“Over time you discovered he cheated with thirteen women?” co-host Jada Pinkett Smith and Jason Jones ask in an exclusive preview clip. In reaction, Kramer reveals it was more. “I know we’re in better positions, but I think about the year my children won’t wake up in his home Christmas morning,” she states, choking back tears. That one’s going to hurt.” Previously in the season, Kramer discloses, “I come from a broken family and the whole idea of growing up in a broken household was, I do not wish to grow up in a broken household. I hate Christmas because I have to split Christmas and that was stressful.” Pinkett Smith sympathizes with Kramer and states, “That’s a tough one when you’re familial aspirations coincide with your kid’s traumatic past.” “And that’s how I feel when I’m like, ‘That’s just not right. You took away my kid’s Christmas wish, too, of what they wanted for their family,'” the One Tree Hill alum adds.
Celebrities can ‘have it all,’ but they’re not immune from cheating scandals.
After Kramer found out that Caussin cheated, she forgave him multiple times. She forgave him when he told her he’d never cheat again. However, when she realized that he was cheating again, she decided to file for separation from him.
At first, Kramer claims she became “really crazy” “ruined all of his Xboxes”, and “writes all over his tux”. The country singer addresses divorce on Instagram, revealing she’s trying “to figure out what just happened again”. “I’ve struggled through this whole thing,” Kramer writes. “I’ve tried so hard to forgive him. I’ve worked really hard at putting myself back together. But I just can’t do it anymore.” Although Kramer stated she still believes “wholesomely in love, commitment, and repairing”, she also explained that “now I’m not fighting anyone, I’m just fighting myself.” “It’s finally my turn to stop fighting,” she continued. “I hope you guys understand why I did what I did because I truly believed he would change. He didn’t.” In her final message, Kramer thanked fans for their support throughout the ordeal, saying “thank you for all the love and encouragement, in many ways you’ve helped me along this journey too.”
He has been sober from alcohol since January 2018.
The following year, they decided to write a joint memoir called The Good Fight: Wanting to Leave, choosing to stay, and the powerful practice for loving faithfully. It tells the story of how they chose to fight for their marriage after years of trying to leave each other.

Pinkett Smith adds, “There’s so much pressure today to just get past someone who has hurt us. We don’t really allow them time to process.”
