JANA Kramer broke down in tears while revealing her cheating ex “mocked” her for not being “strong” after their divorce.
The 37-year-old actress split from the father of her two kids earlier this year, citing his “adultery” as one of the main reasons.
While speaking with Real Housewives of New York City star Dorinda Medley on her Whine Down podcast, Jana started to cry while asking her guest for tips on how to move on.
Dorinda, who lost her husband Richard in 2011, shared that it takes a while to find your path but that Jana just has to be kind to herself and learn to accept that her life is turning out different than originally planned.
The One Tree Hill has been open about the ups and downs in her life since leaving her husband Mike Caussin months ago.
She revealed he hasn’t been to happy about that, though, and let her know by making fun of her and demanding she not say his name.
Jana revealed on her podcast: “It chokes me up because someone, and I won’t name who it is because he doesn’t want me talking about him, but they said, ‘Stop victimizing yourself online.’
“And I’m like, ‘I’m showing that I’m strong,’ and the person mocked me and was like, ‘Oh yeah, you’re so strong.’”
She continued: “I am strong! And I have a right to show that because for the first time I am proud of my strength because I didn’t think I could do this alone. That’s why I stayed in something.”
Dorinda told her that was all “just noise” and that she should “cut” this person out of her life.
After giving an uncomfortable chuckle because she couldn’t say his name, Jana simply replied: “Well, unfortunately, I can’t. You know what I mean.”
The Whiskey singer shares daughter Jolie, five, and son Jace, two, with her ex Mike, 34, and the two have been co-parenting since the split.
Back in May, Jana had won primary custody of her two kids from their divorce but must pay about $3K in monthly child support to her ex.
Mike will then take Jolie and Jace home every week from Friday to Sunday.
He was also granted permission to take them home from Wednesday night to Thursday night on alternate weeks. As for holidays, Jana keeps their two kids on every Mother's Day and on even years for Thanksgiving.
The couple will then divide summer and Christmas vacation equally, and they will alternate them each year. The same rule applies for fall and spring vacations, if the kids have any.
Court documents specify that they can only trade kids at each other's homes or at school.
In late April, Jana took to Instagram to announce she's splitting from Mike, 34, after six years of marriage.
The actress began in the emotional post: "It's time. As I try to make sense of a reality I never wanted to believe could be possible again, those words have now become a reality.
"I've fought y'all. I've loved hard. I've forgiven. I've put the work in. I've given everything I have, and now I have nothing else to give."
A source told People that the split is due to the former athlete's infidelity, which the pair have been open about in the past.
The insider explained: "He cheated and broke her trust again.
"After fighting for the marriage for so long, she's come to terms with the realization that his patterns were never going to change."
