Brant & Seymour Work It Out, but What of Their Kids?

Peter Brant; Stephanie Seymour

It surprised many when the divorce between megabucked media mogul Peter Brant and his supermodel wife, Stephanie Seymour, became a War-and-Peace-of-the-Roses kind of situation. Yesterday, they shocked the judge presiding over their divorce proceedings by announcing that they wanted to reconcile.

"If they wanted to work out a [divorce] settlement, they could have," said a source in theNew York Daily News, but "there's a lot of love there and they are working things out for the family."

Normally, a reconciliation between two people who still love each other is a great thing. But this one comes after months of finger-pointing, slander, drug-abuse charges, infidelity accusations and yanking their kids back and forth. Among a zillion other things, Seymour accused Brant of spying on her, and he called her an unfit mother who mixes drinks and meds.

Brant and Seymour have three kids (two teenage boys and a 5-year-old daughter) who've been caught in the middle of all this madness. So: After all the kids have been put through by their parents, is a reconciliation a good thing ... or a dangerous thing?

Our expert -- Dr. Michelle Golland, a clinical psychologist who specializes in marriage and relationships -- speculates that Brant and Seymour have quite a road ahead if they wish to leave the danger zone. "The fact that they are reconciling will change nothing regarding their negative behaviors unless they receive treatment for themselves and their couplehood," says Dr. Golland. "Couples often divorce how they have lived -- which, sadly, is most often filled with unresolved anger and resentment. Seymour and Brant seem to have had a vicious 'almost' divorce, and I would guess that they have had a very vicious union at times. The ones who are the biggest victims are the three children, who have heard, seen and felt the wrath of uncontrolled, bitter rage filed on paper in black and white for them to read one day. My hope is that these children are in therapy themselves."

Yikes! Here's hoping!

I second that comment. The anger is from ill matched communication styles. Not a viable example for children. They can start over w/ clean page.

Kids are adaptable. Healthy. Optimists by nature. Parents…who knows.

Just about all of whatever you mention happens to be supprisingly precise and it makes me ponder why I had not looked at this in this light previously. This particular piece truly did switch the light on for me as far as this specific issue goes. Nevertheless at this time there is actually 1 issue I am not really too comfortable with so while I try to reconcile that with the actual central idea of the issue, allow me see just what the rest of the visitors have to point out.Very well done.
