LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Jason Zimmerman, Melissa Rivers’ former boyfriend, is the subject of alleged cheating photos and online video chatting in tonight’s Joan Knows Best episode. Jason Zimmerman allegedly had video webcam sessions, photo sharing on websites, and Craigslist seductions, claims Rivers on tonight’s JKB. She also claims that Jason Zimmerman allegedly solicited relations with other couples online, sharing his pictures, during their relationship. The shocking allegations surfaced last year. But the details are revealed in tonight’s WeTV episode. Just days ago, WETV aired the cheating by Gabe Solis, Trina Braxton’s husband, on Braxton Family Values.
Jason Zimmerman and Melissa Rivers were boyfriend and girlfriend when the current episode was taped. But during filming, Melissa learns about a news story about to break. “Melissa discovers a dark secret that her live-in boyfriend Jason has been hiding. It seems Jason has been involved on some online … websites.”
Melissa breaks down about the news. “Unfortunately, just as Melissa is discovering the truth about Jason, so is the rest of the world – and the family is mired in scandal. “
The news eventually surfaced on September 17 of last year. Rivers and Jason Zimmerman were living together at the time. Melissa issued the following news statement then. “Unfortunately, after almost three years, Jason and I are no longer together. I am still trying to process what has come to light over the past few days and I hope that you will respect the privacy of my son and I while we heal. Luckily, we are ‘Rivers’ and always bounce back! Thanks to all my supportive fans, friends, and co-workers for their love and support which is carrying us through.”
Joan Rivers added “If you’re looking for him [on the ... website], search online under ‘Wee Willy Winkie.’”
Tonight, Joan gives support for her daughter as the scandal erupts. Joan tells Melissa “I cannot tell you what it is like to see your child’s dreams smashed. She was setting up a family; they were trying to have a baby together. You just wish you could take all the pain and just put it on yourself. I’m a tough old …. I can take the pain much better. She doesn’t have that easy of a road, and now this, it kills me.”
WETV says of tonight’s episode that “Melissa tries to distract herself with work, but her troubles follow her there as well…. But pain turns quickly to anger when they have a fight on the phone. “
Jason Zimmerman is not the only WeTV personality accused of cheating on his partner this month. Last week, Gabe Solis, Trina Braxton’s husband, was the subject of cheating photos online.
Evelyn Braxton tells Trina that Gabe “has humiliated himself, his job, his mother and his father… yes he did. He was wrong”.
Trina tells viewers and news “when he told me he cheated on me for the first five years of our relationship it wasn’t a physical cheating, it was the same thing, on the internet.” But now that Trina has a television show, there is more at stake.
