Bethenny Frankel

Bethenny explains why RaRa means so much to her and how she deals with Jason and her arguments.

on Apr 24, 20120

Many people have asked me about why I chose RaRa as opposed to someone else like Julie. Julie is wonderful with Bryn and when she gets to New York she always visits. But RaRa is really like a second mother to Bryn and there is a difference. Of all of our friends, it is RaRa who goes out of her way to take Bryn to the park or the museum. She is the one who can't go two weeks without seeing Bryn. It is a parents' instinct and we made the right choice.

Regarding my arguing with Jason in Mexico: it has been a stressful year in many ways. My fans are so protective and so worried, and for that I'm so lucky. It is so difficult to go there and show it all but it is so worth it. This is my life. It ain't always pretty.

RaRa is with me probably more than anyone in the world. I feel like she's always at my house. She has been there for me when I've really needed her. She is a great person and she always says the spot-on thing. We love her with all of my heart. As I write this, she is playing makeup with my little bumble bee before she does mommy's makeup.

Bethenny, WELL DONE!!! Congratulations on your beautiful New York apartment...you, and your family, deserve it! I wish you and Jason would just disregard old relationship stereotypes. Every relationship is unique - that is what makes the world go 'round. What you two have is unique...who goes on a reality show as odd-man-out (the single girl) and catapolts herself into a huge success? Although many have tried, you have actually accomplished it! You had a great idea, started the wheels moving, married and with Jason's help, hit the jackpot. Over the past two years we have seen BOTH of you investing yourselves in this success. Enough of, to quote Jason in Cabo, "I didn't make it" - just be thankful and enjoy it. You are both so very blessed. You love each other, you have a healthy, bright baby girl and the world is your oyster! I am married with two beautiful sons, eighteen and fifteen. Although I have not held a paying "job" in 18 years, I know that I have worked hard and played an important role in the success our family. Now... on to the really important issue things, please share the name of the designer of the black one-shoulder dress you wore in Mexico...you looked absolutely beautiful! Again congratulations and remember... look to the future with "A GLASS HALF-FULL". Ooh, perhaps that could work into a future ad-campaign!

I think Bethenny you can tend to hurt people without meaning to. I believe it comes from your childhood and you cant see it yourself, your a great person but its like you dont feel like you deserve to be happy, but you do. Your a very sweet and funny person, people just want to be close to you because your kind,witty, and personable. Please let people into your life, like your inlaws, it is obvious they try harder than you do to like you, and you do make it tough for them, rather you know it or not, and that doesnt mean anything is wrong with you it just means your scared to get close. I am so sorry for your relationships in the past but let go a little you can and will be happier. Your husband loves you very much. Don't let you little girl grow up like you did let her know love is what you make of it. You have a better life than most make the best of it.

Bethenny I think you are fabulous! I have been searching and looking for the cream colored sweater w/ tan elbow pads you wore when taking Bryn to Spanish class as well as the navy(or black) one you had on this past week ... Episode 13 ... If someone can fill me in I'd appreciate it!

My husband and I watch every week. I told him you & Jason are throwing your pasts into a couple of pillowcases and then beating each other over the heads with them.

I hope you remind yourselves every day and every night of the pure tenderness that brought you together and that you obviously still have between you.

I love the show but I have been nervous watching it this season, the fights between you and Jason worry me a lot. I am rooting for you both and want to see your family growing together but I worry that if you both don't stop, you will not make it. I love that you are brutally honest, I relate but please watch that your "demons" don't cause you to destroy a good marriage. Jason loves you a lt and you should not get angry because people see how good he is, you are also a good person and this should not bother you if we see him as a sweetheart because he is. I think it is wrong for him to say that you are damaged and it is wrong for you to say that you are sick of people calling him the good guy. Marriage is all about being supportive of each other, good or bad.

I love Brynn so much, she is the most beautiful baby ever and so smart, please let us see more of her, it is really sweet to see her grow. I would also like to see the Hoppy grandparents more, they seem like the sweetest people and it would be nice to have them on the show again. They adore you but you seem to have a problem with family, think about how that must hurt them and Jason. By shutting them out you are doing exactly what your father did to you.

It makes me uncomfortable to see your staff so close to you and Jason, your marriage is young and it just seems too strage to have so many young girls in the midst even when you two are fighting, not good. I know you like to keep it real but there is something about marriage that must be kept sacred.

Keep the therapist, you need that outlet and try to enjoy your success, I think that you are undertaking too much too soon and not taking enough time to enjoy your success and family, without the entourage. Love you and the family.

HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY!! So glad to see the show focusing on happier things with you and Jason! I hope you do another season for purely selfish reasons of course. I will understand if you don't though and hope you choose what is best for you, Jason and your adorable Bryn. I miss seeing Jason's parents, they are such sweet people so if you do decide to do another year maybe we can get to see them with a bit more. Look at me! What a demanding, needy thing huh? Bless you B....enjoy the fruits of your labor...you have earned it!

Hi Bethenny, I love you and your show and of course your family. I love your sense of humor and they way you come back with these snark remarks, it's great! I know the finale is coming up. It seems like the season went so fast and I do hope and pray that you do ONE MORE SEASON!! PLEASE?? I watch your show and it makes me forget what I am going through. I lost my mom (we were very close), my dad is not doing well (he's in his 80's) and I am very sick. I am permanently disabled so watching you makes me laugh and sometimes cry. But the majority of the time it is a good time. I wanted to know how did you choose your music for the show because I love it. It's sounds like a nice smooth jazz type of music and then sometimes it has a salsa beat.Is ere any way you can tell me who the music artists are? I'd appreciate it if you can. I wish you the best of luck with your new, beautiful apartment and much continued success with your business and marriage. Love Bryn always and never stop telling her that you love her. God bless you all always!! Cynthia C.

Hi there! I love you and your show!

I'm not one to comment on blogs but I'm getting super frustrated with one aspect. While I have always been a big fan of Jason, this is quickly changing. I despise the terribly hurtful things he says to you! His comments about you being broken and always finding fault in you, simply are not fair and show a major character flaw within himself. Not cool!

Also, for those posting such nasty things.....please get a life! It is evident that you don't have a life because you take time out of tor day to be hurtful. That is the definition of bullying! Shame on you!

Reallyyyy

Bethenny you have it all kiddo! Lighten up and enjoy the ride! Pleaseeeeee do a season 4! Where are Jason parents this season? I miss them! :o( Love it when you laugh and play with Bryn and Jason. No one likes going to negative town. Need more of your funny wit and laughs. I realize an apartment rehab isn't a fun time in ones life. Live, love and laugh....Bravo has a gem and her name is Bethenny!

I don't get to watch much television, so I DVR shows that I like to watch. Today, I watched Bethenny Ever After- Paradise Found. I am so happy to see Bethenny outside of the Real House Wives series... she seems so real in her own show. I got married about a year before Bethenny,my child is perhaps a 6-12 months older than hers and I feel her pain. It is good to know that I am not alone in the woes that I am experiencing as a newly married women with a demanding career and a small child. The arguements they have seem so familiar. While watching this show, I remembered the "valley" moments that my husband and I had in the not-so-distant pass and am relieved that we made it through those times and are now stronger b/c of it. Keep hanging in there guys, I'm rooting for ya!

Bethenny,

I disagree with anyone telling you what to do. For example, dumping your shrink. Clearly, you still have issues that you feel you need him for or you would make that decision. Somehow your decision making process has gotten you to where you are, so it must work pretty well. I also disagree with the posters who say, "Let go of your past". They clearly don't get it. What about the noise that goes on in someone's head who's had a past such as yours? How does that disappear without having an outlet, such as a shrink to clear it out? We all make the best decisions we can with the information we have at hand, so I will just trust that you will do the same, and just thank you for sharing.

LOVE your show, Bethenny. I read you may not do more seasons... SAY IT ISN'T SO! Why is it these folks draw us into their lives when they're "hungry" and then they ditch us. Just so not right. PLEASE reconsider that you invited us in, made us love you, Jason, Bryn, Mr. and Mrs. Hoppy, and your staff... NOW you are off to(in) L.A. and, while we get to see your talk show it is NOT the same. Please reconsider and maybe let us stay in your life.

Bethenny, I feel in love with your show last season and discovered Bravo now it is out of control! Your life is going so swimmingly I wish that you would not allow your appts. with your therapist to be on T.V. I think you do your marriage a disservice. Frankly, people do not need to know that much. I want to see you and Jason in for the long haul. I have been married for 35 years and good marriages are not always smooth but they do take work. You need to make time to work on yours and you will never regret it for you, Jason and your baby girl.

Bethenny- I found the scene where you gave Jason the computer to be very uncomfortable to watch. He was so thankful that you had given him the computer but you kept acting like a jerk, Bethenny. Why doesn't Jason stay home with Bryn and you run your business? He is such a wonderful father...stop acting like a "mommy" to Jason, too.

Bethenny, I hope Jason and you can work well together. I have a feeling though your future with him isn't looking good. Some comments I have read say you put him down and I can agree with that. Even if it's a joke to you it may hurt him. I'm sure you found good qualities in him before you married him. I also agree with another writer who said let the past go, good advice....

WOW!! THANK YOU DR. A! & BETHENNY! I had an aha moment tonight listening to the therapy session in tonight's episode. Saved me lots of time and $$$! I hope Jason decides to go to work for you. I also hope you have told him how much that would mean to you. Little Bryn is just so dog gone cute and sweet! She is just talking up a storm! Thank you for sharing her a little with us each week. May love and blessings continue to come to you all. M in GP

I agree with those who say to dump the shrink. Your relationship with this guy is just one more thing separating you from your husband. I get it when you're single, it's ok to be narcissistic and think so much about yourself, but when you're married, you should really just get over it and do only things that are good for the relationship. This guy never hears Jason's feelings, he hears what you want him to hear, so he has zero potential to do anything positive for your relationship, and at this point, you know the guy so well that subconsciously, you manipulate him to tell you what you want to hear. Stop saying how crappy and imperfect you are, acknowledge that as human beings, both you and Jason are imperfect, and commit to enjoying life together and laughing at the rest of the world.

Right now, you seem to be doing lots of subtle things to force your worst fears to come true. My wife and I are starting to count how many times you "joke" about how you "love" some other guy, or how you "married the wrong guy" in front of Jason. It's all disguised as a joke, but the reality is that it's your way of subtly undermining the relationship and emasculating your husband so that maybe HE will be the one to end it and spare you the blame. Show respect to your husband by not making such trashy jokes at his expense and expect the same kind of respect in return, and stop making problems for yourself. Same goes for him if he makes those kinds of jokes. They are not positive.

Bethanny, I love your show and I adore your quick wit and humor. I also think that Bryn is the most adorable, cute, loving child I have ever seen and I don't even particualrely like children and have none of my own, by choice. I do however, enjoy your show particularely because of Bryn. You are, in my opinion most deserving of your success, from all the stories you tell of your past. Let the haters hate, there is nothing you can do about that but you have alot of supporters also and I happen to be one of your biggest! P.S. I also really enjoy watching Nick the food blogger.

Bethenny,

I can see you are still conflcited overmany issues. I can tell you, if you dont let go of the past, you'll never move on. Everyone is damaged in their own way, Jason included, even if he doesn't realize it. I'd forget my past in a minute if I had what you have achieved. I'd love to jojn you in your new andventure through this crazy life....email me....Mona

I think that Bethenny likes to visit with strangers that is what makes her unique. Her husband on the other hand is a listener and personally more caregiving than her. She needs to realize she is married and reciprocate some of that affection or she will lose the one good thing that has made her happy. Sometimes it appears she gives strangers more affection than him.

DO NOT CHANGE! If you do, you'll be an obnoxious person. As it is, you're a role model. Keep it real with Jason. He loves you and is finding his place.

Bethany I also agree with the advice from someone to get rid of the shrink. I also had a very traumatic childhood, probably a lot worse than yours. I realized that going to therapy kept me in the past. Please know, these therapists are also there to make money and the longer they drag things out, the more money they make. Please, Bethanny, your life is so full of blessings, but as long as you stay in therapy, you will be living with the past. Accept what happened, let go, and move forward with your amazing life. Trust me, when you are 60, like me, you will regret the time you spent bickering over every little thing and you will have wished you could have let go of the past sooner. Always remember, Success is the best Revenge, and my dear Bethany, you have had your revenge. Now get on with your amazing life with a smile one your face!

Bethenny, love watching your show.

As far as the disagreements between you and Jason, I find myself in a very similar situation as you. I don't see my husband's family as much as he'd like me to and he's always saying that i'm the one who has issues and not him. That i'm the one whose always wanting to argue. Bethenny you're a very strong woman. Don't put yourself down and don't let what he tells you get to you. I know it's hurtful but I'm trying to see if my husband and i could meet in the middle with our issues and come to some compromise. Maybe that'll help you too. You're a very smart and successful business woman as well as a awesome mother and great wife to your husband. You are one of the people that i really look up to and are a great role model. Jason needs to understand you are the same person he meet a couple years ago. That what he has done or is doing is currently in life is great and sufficient for you. That it can't be a competition and to just be happy and grateful with all the two of you share along with your beautiful daughter, Bryn. Many couples like us would love to be in your shoes and his. So you guys are very lucky to have what you have. I wish you guys the best in everything! Take care.

Bethenny,

I think you need to stop the hurtful comebacks you say to Jason. It's condescending and just mean spirited. I thnk this is a defense mechanism for you...I do it

You are not a victim or damaged by your parents, those experiences made you the SUCCESSFUL woman you are today. Grow from love....the love you found with Jason, and the precious love of that baby Bryn...I know you have bad memories of a childhood but Jason wants his parents included in your lives and don't be afraid to let Jason's family love you & Baby Bryn she can only benefit from a strong family relationship. Not all people set out to hurt us. I had a father that was a terrible parent but in my heart I know he just wasn't a good parent, some people aren't meant to be parents. I figured this out finally at the age of 30...The behavior of your parents had NOTHING to do with you and to keep believing you're damaged is not good for you or your family. You've proven time and time again that you are not damaged....You're a SURVIVOR.

Much Love, Michelle

Bethenny, Love your show, you are a strong women. Happy to see you doing what it takes to live and get better all at the same time. Life is hard. Please suggest to Jason to see a life coach, since he DOES not like counseling. With his old fashion beliefs about Men, women and counseling. A life coach could help him love his life also, the good the bad and the ugly. The sooner he understands that he is in control of his life, all of it, the sooner he can just let good of all the old mind sets and live a happy life with you and bryn. Hoping you have a safe, loving and successful life.

Bethenny & Jason, as a grandma I have to say I felt shattered for Jason's parents over your decision to will Bryn to RaRa. I am not suggesting that you should put her in their care at their ages. However, as Jason is their only remaining son and Bryn their only grandchild, I hope you have many parameters written into this contract with them in mind. I can't remember if RaRa is married....but I would most want my grandchild to be in a home with a mother and a father.....not that single moms aren't capable and amazing, but just ask any child missing one parent if it wasn't a hole in their heart all their life. What if RaRa marries someone from Australia or Egypt and off they go! As Jason's parents age, it will be harder for them to be the ones traveling to visit. I hope RaRa would agree to be well compensated to bring Bryn to her grandparents at least four times a year for a generous amount of time....and that they would have access to her freely at other times. If something happened to you and Jason, Bryn would be all his parents had left and they seem like a loving and caring influence for Bryns life and they did a good job raising the man you fell in love with.

And Bethenny, one more thing about Jason's parents - don't be afraid to let them love you! Your childhood sounds wretched and so wounding. Let down that wall around your heart that you have had to erect to protect yourself from your own parents, and let them in. I think you can trust them, Bethenny. It will feel so good and it will help your heart heal.

Thanks for letting us into your lives -- this grandma wants the best for you!

Bethenny, I love your show and always watch. I know it's a "reality" show and that drama brings in the viewers. I just want to say that you and Jason are amazing people in your own right. You make a lovely couple and family for Bryn. I want to wish you three all the happiness you deserve, but you have to work for it. I think you're managing fine... we all have our ups and downs, that you "sh-air" yours with the world is commendable and actually shows some confidence. I'd like to see a bit more of that on the show from both of you! You are an inspiration and if I had a daughter, I'd love for her to be just like you... as for the "damaged" part. Delete that word from your vocabulary! No one is damaged... we're all unique as per our life experiences. Some handle it better than other. You are amazing, given the circumstances of your life experiences. Continue being amazing... and lift up your spouse and family with it! G-d bless!

I've been your fan and celebrated your achievements and cried along with your disappointments Bethanny - but I got to speak up here!

First let me say - YOU ARE NOT DAMAGED! Please stop saying-believing and perpetuating this any longer! You have risen to this place of success through YOUR dedication - hard work - perserverance and YOUR belief in yourself - DON'T LET JASON'S MOMMA'S BOY BOOHOO BS-drive that ambition and talent out and away from you. He (please take this as intended) is a coward and a wussyboy mommy needing annoyance! He showed his true colors on his BD after the lovely day you provided for him and his silly boy from the mommahood he grew up with when he said that ridiculous and childish nonsense that you should have included his parents-for God sake Jason - it was only freaking 48 hours before this golf BD heaven world your wife sweetly planned and pulled off for you that you figured out a way to untie the maternalcord once again (barely) to get your infantile ass back to your wife in NYC where you could not act like a man PERIOD!

Bethanny - honey file and walk away-do it really - this man will destroy any happiness you have waited for all your life-give him a boatload (hope it makes him seasick!) of cash and share custody with that most adorable child little Bryn and find a GREAT financial planner and invest the H out of your money-and then run off with your little daughter to lands far far away and party like Onassis and live like you never thought was possible - you do not need his whiny wimpering another day-and I was so happy for you both-do not get me wrong here-please-

Jason is way to egoic-attached to his roots and closed minded-he will never be OK with your success-hon - that is not your fault-it is HIS!! He has ISSUES!! He will never deal with them - he is mean to you-what about Bryn B? No way should her mommy be anything but happy and the best mommy ever-she is and always will be your heart-start your lives together on a healthy happy note - (I am a medical professional who counsels families so I am not just shooting blanks here OK?)

This is my opinion and I know it is shooting from the hip harsh - I just felt I needed to say this - I see this everyday and it almost always spirals downward-I am truly your fan and I admire your accomplishments-people are not bad just because thay make mistakes - what is sad is being too frozen or numb to step up and fix the mistakes - then allowing yourself to move ahead and venture forth into renewed exuberance.

God Bless B (and your precious little B)

Bethenny, love ya'll. Thank you for sharing you life with us. As for those who are telling you to go away, blaming the cameras for you and Jason's arguements, don't listen to those comments. They don't have to watch if they don't want to. There are plenty of other things to watch. Everyone argues at one time. You guys have only been together for 2 years, ya'll get through it. As long as you are happy that is all that matters.

I am so sorry about all the drama with your mom, don't worry about you and your beautiful baby girl. You are already making changes with the way you love and spend time with Bryn. Also by making plans for her shows you really care. You chosing Ra Ra to be a mom to Bryn, that is so amazing that you have someone so special and important to turn to. This just reminds me that I need to do this for my girls.

Thanks again for sharing. Love Ya,

Bethenny, love ya'll. Thank you for sharing your life with us. As for those telling you to go away or blaming the cameras for the arguements and problems, don't listen to that. Everyone has their issues. If you are truly happy then that is all that matters. I am so sorry that you and your mom don't have a relationship. You can change that cycle by doing what you're doing with your beautiful daughter Bryn.

Just watched the episode where you asked RaRa to be mom to Bryn if God forbid something happened to you and Jason. You are soo lucky to have someone to turn to that way. This makes me think that I need to make arrangements for my girls.

Thank you for the show. Love Ya!

Hi Bethenny, I am 43 years old and been married to my husband for 21 years AND we work together in our home office on the business that he founded and I joined about 18 years ago. What I want to tell you is that it will be ok. Don't sweat the business stuff with you and Jason working together. Yes, there will be fights over it. I have quit my job 5 times over the years. There will be power struggles and resentment, because ultimately, you are the "boss". You will find yourself out on a date with him and be unable to stop talking about business. However, the big picture prevails. I see, at least on the show, that you have the personalities for it. All of the BS will sort of fade out over time and you are able to sort of let things go. Enjoy it when it's good and f--- it when it's bad. You guys are a great team. It is a good combination.

I know no relationship is perfect (especially mine after 8 going on 9 years) and there is always that normalcy noise in your head of what is normal and isn't normal. You are true to yourself, your family, and your career which makes you a wonderful person. Without honesty, you don't get what you really want out of life and you have the chutzpah to go after everything you want in life, including happiness in your relationship.

I admire you for many things, but I can clearly see you put a lot of thought and care into the well-being of others before yourself and you truly have a passion for doing what is right rather than what is easy.

Wishing you continued success and love watching your new adventures.

Love your entrepreneurial spirit and you have a beautiful family. I remember hearing Dr. Phil talk about marriage on Oprah, saying it is a person's safe place to fall. Complain about the outside world to each other, but don't nitpick each other or each other's parents. God Bless your marriage.

Hi Bethany! I'm not the kind of person to comment on Blogs...... However; I just can't get past the fact that some people are so brazenly giving you advice that, in my opinion, is extremely off the mark. 1) You're obviously a great person. 2) You are hilarious, and I love the fact that it seems to me that your hard earned success hasn't changed the core of WHO you are! 3) As far as Jason and your marriage are concerned; remember that it takes an average of five years to fully understand each other. (I've been blessed by being married to my soul mate for close to 19 years.) 4) Like you, I had an a horrid childhood, and never dreamed I'd end up with such a wonderful man. 5) This season, it seems as if Jason is experiencing an "identity crises". Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't he instrumental in negotiating and successfully helping you launch your brand? THAT'S SUCCESS! And, from what I understand, you both worked well as a TEAM to achieve everything you're both enjoying.

In essence, my point is that because he was at your side throughout the process, he HAS "made it"......along WITH YOU. You BOTH should be proud and thankful. Neither one of you has anything more to "prove"! Together, you've achieved so much and as a team---you're both unstoppable! Love you're sassy attitude and admire both of you! God's speed and continued blessings!!! :) P.S. Please, simply be patient. Love does conquer all!!!!!!!

Shouldn't Julie be Bryn's guardian because she's the godmother, not ReRe?

Poor, poor Jason. He deserves so much better than this.

I love how women just judge the cr*p out of men and then wonder why they are dateless most Saturday nights. How is this scenario - maybe Bethenny has changed from the woman Jason married. It's difficult for men to not be the bread winner. Instead of expecting Jason to just fall into line, meet him half way kind of like the half way he meets you with having cameras in his face to appease you. Women - guess what? Men are just as smart, just as together and just as emotionally attuned as you all claim to be - they are just black and white while you women seem to be 60 shades of gray and wonder why the world doesn't orbit around you. Oh by the way, I'm female - I've been married for 25 years and I fought with my husband all the time. I loved him till the day he died. I cleaned up his barf during chemo, I injected him nightly with the interfuron that made him sick. I watched my son carry his 90 lb. body to the car for the final run to the emergency room and even then he was criticizing my driving. But I loved him to his very core and to hear all you women just questioning Jason - its insulting. She should meet him half way - not her version of half way...THEIR VERSION of halfway.

Bethenny, just wanted to let you know that I love you, Jason and Bryn and Cookie. Your sense of humor is great and can tell Jason loves it. My husband and I usually find humor in everything even in our darkest hours.We've been together 35 years this year. So I'm hoping you the best and keep that great sense of humor. It can get you thru alot. Love.
