Max defends his work ethic, and explains why working for Bethenny hasn't always been easy.

I'm sorry that the impression Bethenny has of me is that I am lazy and unmotivated. No one has ever known me to be those things. I graduated from the most competitive, lauded, and sought after communications school in the country because I have a tireless work ethic. And I was the shortest college football player in the entirenation during my time at Syracuse University because I had the heart of a lion and an unmatchable level of motivation. But of course, Bethenny only has my performance under her guise to judge me by, and often times my work ethic was mistaken for uncertainty and confusion.

I can't begin to explain how out of my comfort zone I've been with every task I've performed. From picking thongs out of a drawer to building a crib, from purchasing her underwear to picking out her wardrobe, it's all been as foreign as learning Chinese. I want to reiterate that I'm not making excuses for my mistakes. I acknowledge that I haven't always been in top form.

I'm writing this to shed a different shade of light on the situation.
I understand there is a lot of fixing to be done and even more uncertainty.

But one thing's for sure. . .Cookie still loves me!
