Every day is a torment for Brynne Edelsten while she continues to share a luxurious penthouse with the husband she’s now separated from.
It’s not that she and Geoffrey are fighting all the time. It’s just painful to be reminded on a regular basis that the love they once shared has somehow slipped away, and they are now headed for divorce.
‘I can’t even tell you how difficult it is,’ says an emotional Brynne in her exclusive interview with New Idea – out today. Speaking out for the first time since the flamboyant couple’s decision to call it quits on their four-year marriage, she reveals the couple are still living together as ‘I don’t have a lot of options’.
