Watching Bethenny and Jason banter back and forth is a familiar scene. They joke, they jab, and they care deeply for each other. . .you can tell. It's in their eyes and actions.
I hate to, and don't want to compare Bethenny and Jason to Michael and I, but watching I just couldn't help but notice the similarities. Michael is so much like Jason: he listens, he takes everything in before judging the situation, and he's a brilliant businessman. And like Bethenny I am the creative one, I'm the one with my name on the door, and I'm the one that can't wrap my head around some of the "business stuff." I am also the one who wants heads to roll. When I want answers I want answers now, not tomorrow. I have very little patience for mistakes and I just want to get the job done. For me there are no grey areas. No BS. . .watching them was a mirror of us. It was scary at how different, and yet how similar we are.
And don't even get me started with putting the toy together! I can't tell you how many times I have pushed Michael out of the way because he wasn't doing something correctly, or it wasn't the way I wanted, or worse, because he was too slow. I do that all the time…it's not a good quality. My lack of patience is going to get the better of me and our relationship some day. All I know is Michael has the patience of a saint.
While watching the past few episodes I've been curious as to what happened to Max. Every time Max's name comes up Bethenny gets uncomfortable. Well, the cat's out of the bag. . .
I have to say as an employer, I like to have a good time with my employees. Work is work, play is play. Often I take them out for a drink after a crazy day or week. We can let our hair down. If they ever need to chat I always lend an ear. Like my employees, I like to have a good time. However, at the end of the day I am their boss and that boundary has to remain. It seems Max forgot these boundaries. He crossed the line. It was an unfortunate mistake and there is no telling what Max's future holds with Bethenny.
You are one talented designer, Shawn! Cheers to you and Michael. I hope we get to see more of you on Bethenny Ever After (:
Your blog is really confusing to me. You're blogging on Bethenny's show site about a "webisode" that apparently stars you and your husband? Are you going to be airing on bravo soon? Please tell more...explain...
I love Bennathy ever after she is so real and just lovely. Her Jason and Bree make such a wonderful family But 1 comment is that Bethenny really does not know how to react in a family and for that i am so sorry but welcome Jason's parents hopefully they will take it slow with bethenny and she may come along FYI Bethenny you really must embrace Jason's parents they are such lovely parents and grandparents are so very special. Every 2 weeks going to dinner is not too much in fact It is perfect to be able to relax and just chill and enjoyn them Have fun when going to Jason's parents house
YOUR PHONE FACE IS PRETTY FUNNY TOO! HEY, AN IDEA FOR YOUR BUSY OFFICE--HIRE MAX! HAHA, NOT FUNNY, BUT WAS SURE TO GET A TRUE AND CLASSIC SHAWN EYE ROLL! TAKE CARE. YOUR RELATIONSHIP SEEMS SPECIAL, AM GLAD! WE ARE ALL HOPING TO SEE YOU SOON!
Hey Shawn, me and hubby will be celebrating 30 years in May. So you are a nubie still.lol What it takes to stay together is loyalty, creativity, and love. When that someone makes you a better person, then you know it is right. Best wishes with your man. We just got back from the Superbowl and we are planning a Vegas trip soon. That is where we went almost 30 years ago. So be happy and loves of love to Michael.
Good blog. Hope Max learned something constructive. There is a time to work, and a time to play.....and he didn't recognize the boundaries. Hopefully, he will take the lessons learned and be a much better employee in the future.....it does seem like he has the basic talent.
HEY SHAWN, YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH MICHAEL SOUNDS WONDERFUL! I HOPE YOU'RE COMING UP SOON IN SOME EPISODES--MAYBE THE CHRISTENING!? YOUR BUSINESS IS BOOMING AND I HOPE SOME OF THAT IS FROM THE EXPOSURE YOU'VE HAD IN THIS SHOW. HEY, HERE'S AN EYE-ROLLING THOUGHT--HIRE MAX! HAHA! HOPEFULLY, HE'LL FIND SOMETHING THAT BETTER SUITS HIM. HE'S ADORABLE AND DOES HAVE A GOOD PERSONALITY...JUST NOT THE RIGHT FIT FOR WHAT BETHENNY NEEDS. HOPE WE SEE YOU SOON!
I hope Bethenny keeps you as part of her program. I love when you are on....cracks me up the way you have to sneak around Cookie. I could just 'feel' the love you had when looking at Brynn. You are a BIG part of her show so PLEASE have more airtime.
Dear Shawn, if and when my daughter becomes engaged, I so want to hire you to plan her NYC wedding! I have been saving up for this, so just know that you are like a rock star to me. Your work is incredible and I have checked out your website.
