Hey everyone. I'm tearfully sentimental about the season coming to an end. This week's montage of flashbacks definitely brought back memories of yesterday. I'm a hopeless romantic, and I get emotional when I think of the series of events that brought me to this place.
I'm a lucky lady. I have a beautiful family, a career people can only dream about, and I'm about to be in "rare air" (as Jason, my husband calls it). I'm about to embark on an incredible and memorable journey. I am fortunate enough to have my own talk show -- a place where I can talk to women every day about EVERYTHING, all the things that we talk to each other about in private over cocktails. This is it! This isn't your mother's talk show. The queen of TMI is coming to daytime. I can't wait to take the next step with you. Let's talk about it!
Next week is the finale when you will see my new apartment, the one that booze, dreams, and passion built. I can't believe it's the end to a very honest and open season. This is who I am. This is what it is. No apologies. Thank you all. I have and always will have the best support system that anyone could wish for. I cherish and appreciate you.
Finally I get to write a comment. I just want to let you know how HAPPY I am that you are going for the talk show. You are amazing and I cannot watch you without a huge smile on my face. I know you all of a sudden have a lot of haters and I hope, sincerely, that you ignore their disgusting comments. They can be toxic. But your story is so relate able to so many and I think you are amazing, I am sorry about your divorce but honestly as I watched you grow I could see it was not going to work, Don;t get me wrong, Jason is great but in his world I think he could not overcome the fact that YOU went for it and maybe he felt insignificant. But that is his issue to deal with that. And the person that posted that you go for men with money need to get a grip. I did wish you would have slapped Kelly just once. LMAO! I will be watching all of your episodes and I hope that your show STAYS on the air, we need you, your sense of humor, your beauty and your non-filtered way of expressing things that we only wish we cold say at work hahaha
I used to absolutely adore you - now, not so much. Many people grow up with horrible childhoods much worse that you my dear and even more don't become as successful as you. Time to grow up and stop blaming your parents. You should know by now that they don't define you and it's just a crutch to not succeed or have loving relationships. I thought you would have wanted a family, but you really don't. You wanted the idea of a family
Bethanny....Wish you still blogged just because....we actually liked to read them...I had no idea about the breakup till a top ten weddings on Bravo..had no idea, as I watch bravo and love this website, but can never indulge in googling past shows.....but what I wonder is how odd it must be to see all of that still playing on some other channels...but I will tell you when I knew the marriage might run into trouble...there was a scene when you visited your inlaws with your baby...a restaurant scene...when mention was made of moving to L.A....your in laws just deflated...it was so visible...and to think Jason was not going to be troubled by that was being in denial...he has a strong link to his parents that most grown sons do not have...I bet his parents were not the reason for the breakup...but deep down in a place called Jasons heart...he always will want to make his parents happy...cannot imagine how they feel about all this...without a doubt they love your child.....I thought about the small heart your mom in law gave you on your wedding day...what a nice gesture...she wanted so much to connect with you....I am sure Bryn will have that one day...it should still hold a lot of sentiment for her.... Just Let it Be Bethanny...
I just love you! I feel for you having split with Jason, however, I know you have done the right thing. He wants what he wants and he does not listen and will not change. I believe he is passive-aggessive - the quintessential "good guy". While I think he is a fine person he would drive me insane the way he plays his word games. I am watching the entire series on Style right now and I am seeing things I did not see when I watched the season prior. GOSH what a mess of dodges and double talk. Bethanny, IT IS NOT YOU. I promise.
I don't watch much reality t.v.. Too much drama & chaos. However, I saw Bethenny's show and really liked her. I knew this marriage wouldn't last though. I just watched several of the shows the other day and saw that Jason does have a bad side that I'd never noticed. He apparently says really hateful things to B. Opposites do not always attract. Too many differences in personalities, childhood upbringings and family life. I kept hearing them both say, "Let's wipe the slate clean", but they never do! They BOTH keep bringing whatever the issue is they say they're going to drop, up! There's too much resentment toward each other and too much bitterness. I do hope Bethenny's show does well ~~though I don't think that'll last too long either~~ I can't wait to see it. This is going to be one nasty divorce. I hope B. finds true inner peace & happiness with herself and life.
I'm watching the marathon of your show and just am heartbroken that you and Jason aren't together. You 2 need to lock yourselves in room together and remember your vows and the promises you made to each other.
Jason....I loved Bethenny but you deserve happiness....I hope she figures it all one day.....I hope you find someone who deserves you! B will realize many years from now that she threw away a gem of a man.
...Life is tough. I don't know how you hang in there under a microscope, but I admire how you admit your shortcomings as well as your successes.
Swallow your pride, get off TV and get back with Jason. Your real life does not hold a candle to your TV life. Step back. You are financially secure, now run off and hide out for a few months and heal yourselves.
NiteOwlett Sorry but I think Jason is IMPOSSIBLE. Where do you see his attempts to change? I don't see them. He married thinking she would warm up to his parents...that she would change. Not good. She likes his parents but doesn't need new parents. I completely understand that. Too bad Jason doesn't!
you guys are pathetic, she is a user. no wonder jason dumped her ass. she leaches towards being famous.
Bethenny, so glad to have 'met' you on the RHONY, you are by far the best ever. There are few that hold a candle to you. You are so honest and so witty and so funny. Thanks for all the laughs you have given me. I will always hate that you and Jill broke up. I will always love the scene where you and Alex laugh your asses off on Ramona's boat trip. such a genuine funny moment. Jason is one of a kind. what a guy.
I do hate how all of the other housewives have ripped off your originality by starting their own 'product' lines, especially Theresa NJ for stealing the "skinny" line. that sucks. Oh well she will never be you. Good luck on the talk show!
I just want to say that first of all.... this is the first blog I have ever posted in my life. I am posting because for reasons I know and don't know... you Bethenny and your family are in my heart and I pray for and wish the best for your total success and happiness. I can relate to your struggle with "how does love and committment really work" and so appreciate that you have sought help with those issues. Great job! Best wishes for your family and your new series. Hang in there Jason... us fatherless girls just go on tilt not only with the negative stuff but often times with the possitive stuff as well just because it's rather foreign. My sincere sympathy for your recent loss. You are all beautiful and cause me to have alot of hope. Thanks and all my best.
Love you! It was very encouraging to see you and Jason work hard to protect your marriage. It's easier to give up and move on. Thanks for opening your life to us!
Bethenny, Best of luck with the new Talk Show. I am hoping that the rough spots that were covered this season will be smoothed over and happy times at your home! Keep it real BFB.
This will more than likely not get posted. As I have tried many, many, times. Congratulations on your talk show. I will definitely tune-in on June 11 to watch it.
Your Biggest Fan!
I love your show . You have earned everything that you have--a wonderful husband and a beautiful baby girl. I can hardly wait when you begin you talk show. Will you be announcing it --time channel etc.? I hope that you are able to have another soon--if not you are still a very blessed lady!
Come and visit us in Australia. We love you here! Don't ever stop being you Bethenny. Your so funny and your TMI is hilarious. Xx
I have loved watching you on Bravo. I was so happy to see you on RHNY as I loved you on the Martha Stewart Apprectice show. I was so pleased you got your own series on Bravo. I sure hope none of these divorce rumors or publicity stunt rumors are true. Otherwise, I call bs, but will be truly disappointed. I don't know why you said yes to the talk show deal. I would imagine you'd be better off in NY with your daughter, your husbnad, and your existing businesses. I would understand the desire to capitalize on offers presented, but still....too high a price I think, too full a plate. Anyway, I wish you all the best. You're a good girl. I work with children who have emotional and behavioral difficulties due to familiy situations and are currently in residential placement because of it. I get it. Keep feeling and working your way through it, and stop being so hard on yourself. Love you.
I have Three books on my nightstand and it's a constant reminder of keeping my faith; my bible, my journal and your book! You're and inspiration of love, life and letting go, for a girl like me to come from Brooklyn to Greenwich, I find so much strength in your story. Please know you inspire so many women who you will never meet in your lifetime but hold you dear in their hearts. Keep letting go Bethenny!
Bethenny, Short and Sweet I purchased your Skinny Girl Margarita in Idaho and I love it thank you. Good luck with your show and everything in life love ya Pam
Bethenny, are you and Jason going to be OK? I mean in Bethenny's getting married I've never seen a couple so in love. Please take time for each other and remember (this is for Jason) the best thing a Father can do for his children is to love their Mother". AND, a "good marriage is falling in love over and over again, always with the same person". Your both so special don't loose that!
I am very happy to see that you made it through the storm a better and happier you. As a supporter and loyal viewer, I was concerned that you would change who you are to accommodate Jason. However, I am glad to see that you appear more confident and more at peace. I hope that you continue to experience joy without compromising the Bethenny we have come to know and love.
Sincerely, A loyal supporter
P.S. Looking forward to your new show.
Good luck on your show Bethenny, can't wait!
Hey If Jason is still nervous about joining the Skinnygirl team why doesn't he start a product line of his own under the Skinnygirl brand?? I know for a fact my that my husband would be more willing try one of your nutritional products if only it were endorsed by a fit and health-conscious guy like Jason . . . just an idea.
Hi Bethenny! I love you and your show. You have a beautiful family and your show is a breath of fresh air, especially compared to the Housewives shows :) A family is so sacred...I am struck by that when watching your family doing even the simplest, most everyday things...like you running around on the lawn with Bryn when you got to Montauk. Seeing those moments, just brings tears to my eyes. Thank you for sharing them. :) I have a silly and unimportant comment to make...one which is relevant to nothing! but it has me curious... I have noticed over the years that you do not wear any nail polish. Well, maybe clear, but never any colors, even when they are the height of trendiness, like when women started wearing the really dark colors a few years back. Maybe you have a personal reason for this that you do not wish to share, but if not, perhaps this is something you might address on your new talk show? xo, Kate from CT
HI BETHENNY, I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED YOU FROM GET GO, BUT IF YOU DON'T GET CALMED DOWN, AND STOP INTERRUPTING PEOPLE, I.E. MOSTLY JASON, THEN I JUST CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE. THE MOST SPECIAL THING I LOVE ABOUT YOU IS HOW YOU CAN COMMENT AFTER SOMEONE TELLS A STORY, BUT NOW YOU INTERRUPT AND ITS IRRITATING TO WATCH. JUST CHILL THE ~~~~~ DOWN, AND LET SOMEONE SPEAK AROUND YOU.
You really re an amazing person. What I love is that you are completely real and honest. I admire you fighting to always work on not only yourself but your relationships with others. Everyone needs to be alot more like that. I wish you the best with your future with Jason and Brin. I do have to tell you I would love to see you and Jill become closer again. You know when I say this its a compliment...You and Jill have very strong personalities however I believe you both are very passionate and have a love for each other. There is always room for more friends and people to love. Life is very hard and having love and friendships gets you through. Just something to concider. Wishing the best for your future!! Laura
Bethanny, Love your show, love the honesty....you and Jason are real and believable. And it is very evident how much you truly love each other and your beautiful baby! I pray that you keep your commitment to one another during all the adjustments you are making in dealing with your new-found success, it can't be easy! But you worked hard and you deserve it all! Don't ever forget how much you mean to each other.... I look forward to another season of Bethanny Happily Ever After..... Judi
Bethany - you are my favorite BRAVO star! You and Jason need to stop arguing. Just look at the AMAZING daughter you both created. She is a Baby Genius!!! If you are ever in San Antonio, Texas, our doors are open to you and your famly!!!
Love, Love, you Bethanny but please more Bethenny Ever After!!! We want to see Bryn, Jason and the crew!!!!! Please!!
Love you Bethenny! Your ambition, drive, passion, dedication, humor, and realness. I can't wait to see your talk show, but I hope this isn't the end of Bethenny Ever After...
Ms. Frankel I just watched the New York Housewives last season and reunion shows and at the end again I cryed over what happen between you and Jill. I think she really love you and friends are hard to come by Bethenny we need to cherish those we have. While we're not privlige to your every move and we should not, I just sense Jill is your friend and we do have friends who become jealous. I know I have one and sometimes its hard to take. But what I know for sure if I needed her for something she would be there and I feels the same way about you guys. Bethenny it would be good to see where you two guys are on your show.
Bethenny, you are so funny and caustic but always delivering your one liners with ease. I love your sense of humor and crazy sharpness you are so noted for in your conversation. Lucky gal...you...unbelievable reality setting in for you and your darling family. I cannot wait to see your new abode!! I hope you have hung all the art work you bought on the NYC streets. I so want you and Jason to work on the rough spots in your lives. Bryn deserves two loving parents. I also love Jason's parents. They are so real. Can't wait for the final episode of the season.
Oh and Bethenny I brought my first bottle of Skinny Girl the Pina Colonda put some of it in my sweet tea by Peak and OMG it was good. I drink the bottle in a week. I' don't drink often. That combination and reading "Fitfy Shades of Gray" chapter four girl set it off in my bedroom. My little sweetie is reading the book and wants more of the book and Skinny Girl. Just wanted to say thanks!
Dear Bethenny, I love you and I love the fact that you have opened your world to us and you have made us laugh with that great sense of humor that you have! You have the most adorable baby girl, God bless her, please love her and always let her know that you will be there for her. I had a great childhood, my mom and I had a very special bond. I lost her 3 years ago and I have not been the same since I lost her. I was always "daddy's little girl" and even though I am 48 years old he always calls me "his baby." He is not doing well either because after 59 years of marriage he lost his best friend, his wife, his world and everytime I go into NY to see him (every other weekend), I look at him and I wonder what I'm going to do when I lose him. I was blessed with the best parents in the world so please always show Bryn how much you love her and how special she is to you, which I'm sure you're going to do. I wish you luck in your marriage, in raising your girl and I do hope you can at least give us 1 more season of your life. I know it is not easy to have cameras following you around everywhere but you always bring a smile to my face no matter what. I am very sick myself and just a little laughter to me is a big deal. Thank you so much. I have not tried your cocktails even though I want to but it's just my finances are so tight that I cannot afford it. Trust me if I could I would. Once in a while I need a cocktail, I think I deserve it after everything I have been through with my health. I love you Bethenny and may God bless you with continued success and much love. Take care and I hope you enjoy your summer!!
Hi Bethenny, Sorry to bother you again, I just wrote to you this morning but I forgot to ask you-is there any way I can buy a copy of the music they play on your show. It sounds like smooth jazz, salsa and I really like it. I've liked it since the first season of your show. Can you please write it down somewhere so I can see if I can buy it? Thank you so much and forgive me for bothering you. Love you.
I truly find you to be an inspiration. You've come from a place where you had little to nothing and have completely turned it around. Just when I feel like giving up on my life and my goals, I see you and am encouraged to keep fighting. You make me realize that anything is possible even in the darkest of dark. I sincerely wish you all the best of luck with your talk show (which I will be sure to watch) and everything else you take on in the future. I love you, your family, and your show! Can't wait to see what comes next!
Bethenny, just remember that less is more. Good luck on your new venture and remember to put your family before ANYTHING else!!!
Bethenny, Your are so very special and I just am so great full there are people like you on tv. I so adore your family and your friends. I'm impressed with the way you value others. It is refreshing to see a women be a real women, who is not afraid to show her real feelings, and how the situations are truly affecting you. I'm confident that you and Jason will be looking back in your later years and be so proud of your commitment. Continue to grow together and be kind to each other. The best gift you can give your baby is a wonderful marriage. I will look forward to your talk show and cant wait to here what to see you! I truly admire you, and think you are a very special women.
Please, if God willing have more children... your such a good mom... and Jason is such a good dad, and you both have so much to offer as parents to children, so I hope you get pregnant soon.
Love you Bethenny! (Been your number one fan since the beginning of New York.. I took have always been the one who was never married with all my married friends, so I totally relate to you in so many ways, I too have no family and have very similar life's , ) God Bless!
Hi Bethenny, I have always loved you, from the beginning of New York Housewives. You have come a long way. I'm so happy that you and Jason has begin to work things out. That is what you go through in a marriage. I know you are very busy but don't Ever get so busy that you forget to put time in you marriage. I see that you have great in-laws and Brian looks just like Jason's mom. You new home is beautiful. Looking forward to seeing more of you and your family. I like the way you treat you team even your nanny.
Hey Bethenny, Congratulations on your new show! I'm a huge fan...since the beginning with RHNYC. Love the show and truly feel proud for you, sad with you, and laugh in that way that says "I relate". Thank you for your candor. My husband and I have enjoyed the free therapy.*insert smile here* I am the free spirit, he the planner. I feel. He thinks. It isn't easy to be in love with someone that is so different. But it is real. And the bottom line is that i am better for loving him and being loved by him. What isn't work isn't always rewarding. I wish for you to know in your marriage (and me in mine) the benefits of faith and work like you have in your career. God bless you -k
Bethenny, I have loved watching you since the Housewives and have appreciated your humor and honesty, it is so refreshing. I have watched every episode either LMAO or crying with you because I can understand what you are going through but also hoping that you could find the one thing that you hoped for so desperately and that was to find true love and to have a family. I was so very happy that you found Jason....he appears to truly love you and is a good man, husband and father from what we see on tv...I know that what we see is edited to a certain degree but I think what we all see is a good match. I have been watching season 3 and I have to say that you seem to have changed....I am still rooting for you but you seem obsessed with your career which is fine but you now have a daughter and a husband and you have made it girl.... would it hurt to slow down and enjoy what you have....it seems like you are trying to fill a void that no amount of fame or money will fill. I am very sad to watch you and Jason struggle....I don't believe that you are damaged and I don't believe Jason is against you but I do believe that your childhood does stick with you and those years make you who you are and how you continue to live your life as an adult....everything does happen for a reason even having horrible parents. You are not repeating the cycle as you know it but trying to redo it and it shows when you are with your daughter....please don't punish Jason because he had a different upbringing than you just like you don't want him to make you feel like you are a bad person because of yours, why do you think you fell in love with him, was it because he had qualities that you don't have....and the same for him? I hope that you continue to go to counselling (with Jason I hope) and you can work through the issues that you are going through, I am still rooting for you because you are real, you are a fighter, you are smart and you are like many of us that watch you. Good Luck.
