Jackie discusses her thoughts on Julie's leaving and her job at Team B.

on Apr 10, 20120

This episode is by far my favorite. It is so happy and fun, but shows the turn that our lives are about to take. Julie is leaving! I was in full-on denial (hence no emotions!). I knew Julie was ready for a change and I'm proud of her for following her gut.

You will always see me helping Bethenny pack, we call it "Mommy and Jacka packa" to Bryn, since she calls me "Jacka."

I thought it was really creepy how Jason was interacting with you. I have a daughter your age and I would be horrified if she was in your shoes. The Hoppy's should have a mature person working for them not you. They cross the line way too much. They turn use up everyone and will you also.Even Max got the boot.

Good luck Jackie, you're going to need it. I think you will do great in your new position as B's assistant...............if you're willing to be her slave 24/7 and make your life all abut her. I do wish you the best, but buckle up...

Bethenny needs to realize that her businesses are huge....she is a multimillionaire. Why does she still have a makeshift office for her staff out of her apartment? She needs to hire a professional staff and rent professional office space.

Jackie - it will be fun getting to "know" you better on the show. I hope, though, that the lovely Bethenny learns to separate business from private life for all of your sakes. You shouldn't be on call 24 hours a day. Good luck!

Jackie, the minute Julie said she was leaving my first thought was "Jackie is a better fit for this position and will do a better job". I can almost guarantee you are proving my thoughts right!! You're perfect for Bethenny, I think you two are cut from the same cloth.

If I was you I would start looking for another job asap. You are young and belong in a place where there are other young people. NYC has lots of great work environments. To be cooped up with all that drama is awful..look even Julie is bailing.

to "Sandygirl": what a hideous post! I'd suggest you get a life pronto. Jackie, don't listen to naysayers like her. You will do great and what better mentor to have than Bethenny? As Dr. Seuss said "oh the places you'll go!" Best of luck to you and Team Bethenny...

It will be very difficult to fill Julie's shoes and Bethenny will likely need to hire another full time assistant. I hope you can do the job but you appear "out of it" a lot of the time and your hair and clothing disheveled most of the time. Look at your gaze in the previous picture with you and Julie in the kitchen. I hope you can take the job more seriously and do a good job......PS...couldn't help but notice that you and Bethenny had you elbows on the table all during lunch.
