Jana Kramer appeared on Red Table Talk and you knew they were going to go deep into her relationship with ex Mike Caussin. That’s what they do. We know Jana had a hard time dealing with Mike’s infidelities that led to their divorce. While at The Table, Jane said there were a few days it was bad enough she took it out on his stuff. She confessed to battling a defenseless pantry door, for some reason. Then Jana directed her ire to things Mike would care about, like his Xboxes, which she pulverized, and his tuxedo, which she wrote all over.
Though Jana Kramer thinks her split from ex-husband Mike Caussin was for the best, there were still days when she struggled — and took out her anger on his possessions.
“I shattered so many things in my house … there was this pantry door. Me and my girlfriends took a bat to it and we just shattered it,” she admitted in an exclusive clip from Red Table Talk. “Then I destroyed all his Xboxes that he said was his only vice. I wrote all over his tux. I went real crazy for a minute!”
In an additional preview clip from Kramer’s interview on the Facebook Watch series, Jada Pinkett Smith asked Kramer how many times Caussin allegedly cheated — and whether it was with more or less than 13 women.
“More,” the country singer, 38, said as her eyes begin to water. “I know we’re both in better situations. But I think about this year … my kids won’t wake up at my house Christmas day. That one’s gonna hurt.”
“That’s when I get like, that’s not fair. You took away my dream too, of what I wanted for my family,” she said. “That’s not fair.”
I still don’t get the pantry door. I don’t doubt it felt great, but Jana was going to have to replace that and probably clean it up herself. I can’t imagine it held any value to Mike. Maybe that’s just the Capricorn in me speaking. The Xboxes I understand, and I’ll bet that did hurt Mike where it counts. (Also, how many are we talking?) I appreciate Jana mentioning that Mike cited Xboxes as his ‘only vice’ while he banging the Eastern seaboard behind his wife’s back. I don’t fault Jana for trashing Mike’s stuff to get her anger out. I hope the kids were out of the house, as that would probably confuse them, but I’m a recent convert to clobbering things. I went to a pumpkin patch this weekend and they let you buy the older pumpkins at a fraction of the cost and then smash them with sledgehammers in a special area. I beat the ever-living hell out of that poor pumpkin. Talk about cathartic. Writing on Mike’s tux is inspired. I hope she put it on a mannequin in the front yard for all to see. And Jana said Mike had affairs with more than 13 women? Yeah, pass that woman another Xbox.

She was probably fine and then all of a sudden wasn’t fine and the pantry door was the first thing in the way.
I’m going through an amicable separation and I still had a day when I was ready to smash my spouse’s sht.
Yes, I know it’s a crime. No, I didn’t do it. But if I was rich and could afford to replace broken shit? Would’ve done it and accepted my punishment.
Maybe get a punching bag and some grief counseling instead of destroying things she would have to pay for and maybe being arrested for? Set a good example for the children in managing anger and pain instead of being destructive?
Exactly this, destroying things like that is just plain immature and against the law. Violence is never ok.
Yeah, in comparison lying in front of a car seems pretty tame, eh?
This is super immature and toxic, and the kind of stuff an ex could definitely use against you in court. It’s awful to be cheated on, but trashing the house is not the way to go.
Lying down under the car is manipulative and toxic and not any better. Stop caping for Sudeikis. He’s just as bad.
yeah, this was my first thought – both lying in front of a car and destroying things are abusive behaviour – why are we treating these differently?
will say tho – it absolutely feels good to smash things when you’re going through something like this – i just made sure to smash my own stuff, in my own space
An American friend of mine started her own business after the divorce. It involves a punchbag with the face of the person who hurt you (eg husband) on it, so you can beat the ever-loving sh!t out of it. Thought it inspired 🥊
I haven’t been in these circumstances (and I’m sorry for anyone who is or was!) but I highly recommend to anyone seeking out a “rage room”. They can set up entire rooms for you to smash, give you safety googles and clothing, and multiple choices of blunt weapons. And they do the clean up!
Not quite as personal but…WOW…what a release. I smashed an old computer printer to bits with a crowbar. It was cathartic as hell. 🤣
I hope that she finally does have closure. That man really abused her and I cannot imagine the affect it has had on their children. It’s too bad that her being cheated on seems to be her entire identity. I hope that changes for her as well.
Magen my friend was divorcing her husband, her therapist recommended that she buy a bunch of figurines at the dollar store and put them in an old purse and smash that purse to get out her rage. She loved it so much and at the end she opened the purse and emptied it into the trash.
I would suggest finding a boxing club where you can put on the gloves and go at it and get your workout in too.
He is horrible, but she also sounds so toxic.
In regards to the pantry door – I think when they were building he REALLY wanted that door and she hated it but let him have it. It was a “storyline” for a while. Hence the smashing.
He’s a crap bag, smash it all.
That makes sense.
I never smashed anything out of fear of repercussions. Whatever I did would’ve been done to me tenfold. All I could do was get out but burn it all down fantasies are nice. I say good for her.
Wow, these two… did not bring out the best in each other.
Her catharsis is right here. Probably her best song.
She married a guy she barely knew, who had never had a serious relationship. And wonders why he cheated on her. Sounds like she idolized him without knowing him. And she just wanted the perfect photos for instagram. Not a marriage.
Her picker is broken. But better to take your anger out on inanimate objects than a person or a child.
If she were hard-core, she would have destroyed his car, including snapping off the windshield wipers. Just sayin’.
This sounds completely psycho to me. Destroying things is just gross. She is the most unrelatable person on earth to me.
Also the value of catharsis has been totally debunked.
100 percent agree. If someone told me they did this I would go so far as to drop them from my circle. Not someone I would be around.
That’s not a good look, nor is it a good example for the kids, nor should she be crowing about it. In Canada, she would have just handed him proof for a criminal charge, and admitting the damage isn’t going to help her family law case. You don’t destroy property because the owner of it wronged you.
Best piece of advice that she should take is to act in such a way that she will be proud of herself a year from now.
I mean Carrie underwood wrote an entire song about doing this but on a much larger scale and people still love it so…Idk, I definitely destroyed things in high school when my boyfriend and I fought but I learned that it’s not worth. It doesn’t mean I still don’t have the urge to just go bananas every now and then but I don’t act on it. I guess I’m saying I understand where she is coming from, that rage that builds up inside of you and you need to physically get it out. Especially if it seems like the other person couldn’t care less. People are built different and feelings manifest differently for them. Doing it in a rage room or taking boxing is a better healthier way though.
I destroyed a few smallish things from my ex when he decided to walk out out very unexpectedly (like one day we were booking an anniversary trip, the next he said he was unhappy and all my fault. He of course forgot to mention the woman he was seeing and blowing up our life for). I tossed some set of car keys that were super expensive for him to replace and tore up some crap he never even mentioned so guess he didn’t miss. It felt good.
Honestly lying under a car and breaking a door sound like normal reactions to your spouse walking out and blowing up your family. Emotional responses aren’t always abusive (I do think that word is often overused when people are having a human response). No one was hurt in any case and crap is replaceable.
Emotional responses that feature destruction of property are classed as DV and you can be arrested. I had an employee who didn’t lay a hand on his wife but destroyed the TV and ended up in jail. Hopefully the children weren’t home as this behavior could be traumatizing for them since both are still the childrens’ parents.
I love people who think they would take the high road and be mature about the whole breakup.
These are people that never had someone thoroughly humiliate you in public time and time again.
Have you had to find out you partner cheated on you through the internet and have the world pity you or look at you like you’re another cuckold. Think about how they put your health in danger?
I’ve been there and I can assure you that I broke nothing. I got my karma through the courts. She does everything for attention.
Yikes. This sounds really immature to me.
I know she’s a lot, but that ending of, “that’s not fair” broke my heart. It’s true – she didn’t cheat, but she’s getting punished by not having her kids XMas morning?! That would suck…makes me sad for her.
But she did cheat. She maintains it was while they were on break and, what’s worse, it was with her married Dancing with the Stars partner.
Doesn’t excuse what he did, but she’s every bit as deplorable. She seems very immature and is thirsty af.
