Big Shoes to Fill

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

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."

Drybar was so much fun. The concept is great and the fact that they are serving Skinnygirl Cocktails now is even BETTER!!!

Parenting magazine's party was such a nice event. I loved her outfit and like getting her ready for relaxing events such as that.

Finally the photo shoot -- I can't believe I can put "model" on my resume! I sooo never thought I would do this. And that's just it, never rule anything out in this job. One day you learn CPR, one day you learn self defense, one day you're modeling Skinnygirl Shapewear! There is NEVER a dull moment!

P.S.: I know I have big shoes to fill, but Julie is a great teacher and will help me with everything I need to know!

Follow Your Heart

Julie reflects on her journey with Bethenny and where it will lead her next.

Everyone -- this was a pretty intense episode. I wanted to thank all of you for the positive thoughts and support throughout this whole journey. Working for Bethenny and creating an unbreakable bond with her family truly changed and molded me as a person, and has allowed me to take the next step of my life with confidence. You have all helped build Bethenny's empire and your constant support has allowed her to take the next step -- her talk show. Although I am not directly working for Bethenny anymore, I am supporting from a distance and keep very close to her and her family.

For those of you who have asked, I am extremely happy and living in my hometown of Pittsburgh since January. I recently got a job in PR and marketing and am looking forward to the next steps of my life. This experience has taught me many things, but the most important thing is to follow your heart and be thankful for everything that you have in life.
