Shawn Rabideau

Shawn discusses his web series, and Julie's smoking makeover.

on Mar 3, 20110

I'm so excited that each week you the viewer will get to learn a bit more about me, who I am, what I do and what make's Shawn…Shawn. It's the insiders look into my life.

The first part of the blog this week is my take on the premier webisode that can be seen right here on BravoTV.com (editor's note: right here). Check back every week, and you'll learn even more about me…perhaps more than you ever wanted!

In my life it's often hard to separate work from home, because so often they intertwine. The biggest reason is that Michael and I live, work, play, and breathe together. It's not codependency as much as a business decision we made years ago. We agreed that we would work together and build the Shawn Rabideau "brand."

When it comes to business, we rarely make a decision without a democratic vote. We like to think of it as the check and balances of Shawn Rabideau Events and Design. Keep in mind the 50/50 split isn't always a good thing. I'm the creative; he's the business man. That combo is sure to clash at some point. One rarely understands the other. How we do it I'm not sure, but we do.

Shopping with Michael is like watching the comedy Grumpy Old Men. We often disagree, but find agreement in the disagreement. Some call it fighting, some call it b---hing…we call it conversation. I want something that Michael doesn't like, and he wants something I don't like. That's often the case when we shop. And how we ever come to a decision on anything still amazes me.

We were in the middle of our craziest event season (nine events in three weeks) trying to balance numerous events, decorating the office, and decorating our home for the holidays. Our excursion to the floral market was supposed to be relaxing and a moment to get out of the office and soak in the upcoming holiday season. Instead I turned it into a whirlwind of panic.

U are so cute, but how do u explain the democratic vote? It's either 50/50 or 100%! Who gets the tie breaker? Just absolutely love u!!

They really should give you your own show - I think it would be a lot of fun to watch....your a very interesting and funny guy !!! But what ever you do leave all drama OUT !!! All the RHW shows are just getting to be to much with that and they're just no fun to watch anymore - that's why Bethenny's show is so enjoyable - no major drama.... and I think a show about your life would be just as enjoyable to watch - SO COME ON BROVO, SHAWN NEEDS HIS OWN SHOW!!

I love watching the little web series! Aww you & Michael are sooo cute happy 8th anniversary! I was happy to see that on the first episode they showed future clips of what's to happen this season & they showed you several times. Can't wait to see you on the episodes this season. I totally agree with Irish Mama that it would be wonderful if Bravo TV gave you a spin off show. You would also have a huge NYC following, my girlfriends & I love you! You added so much spice & excitement to the episodes last year. You are so fun to watch, we want more!!!

I'm so ready for you to get a spin off on BRAVO! Your one liners are hilarious and I think your job is so interesting and you have to deal w/bridezillas and I think your relationship w/Michael would be a huge hit!!! I'm dying for Bethany to plan an event so we can see you again soon!

Shawn...loved seeing you and your partner out and about NYC...and hope to see more of you on the tube. It was really fun to watch you deal with the stress of Bethanny's wedding plans, and I especially loved the discussion over the cotton candy....did you really know what she was talking about, or did you fake it?? Anyway, your facial expressions were priceless. Best of luck in your business, and it sounds like you're super successful!!
