Come a Long Way

Julie discusses the growth of the Skinnygirl empire and all the drama this season.

WOW! Team Bethenny is BACK! So much has happened, and I am so excited for you to see what is to come this season!!! Wait until you see how big my precious little godchild is! She is such a gem!

As you can see, the team has grown immensely. We have Jackie, Maggie the intern, Veronica the Glammy, Stacey for hair, Sonia for hair/makeup, Dawa the nanny, Dwayne the driver. . .and so many others in and out of the office every day. We have come along way with support and having a lot of people to help out, but like Bethenny said the people of the Skinnygirl empire have nowhere to sit. . .

The office is crazy town. All I can do is try to focus and complete my daily tasks. but it is so hard -- I am always trying to move things for people, keep people happy, keep everyone on track and on time!

However, my as you can see, my time with Bethenny in the office is precious! It is one of the only times I can have her focus on my questions and other tasks that we have to complete. Having Jackie and now Maggie helps immensely! The best part is that Jackie and I get to "split" things. For instance, she went to the Health magazine shoot and I stayed at the office to complete other tasks!

Oh Bethenny trying to do yoga: she wants to focus so bad, but her mind sometimes won't let her. She has too much floating around in it!

I never know what to do -- leave her alone or listen to her when she calls my name! "Julie. . .Julie. . .Julie." Story of my life!

I love seeing all the things Bethenny does when I am not with her-- basically how inappropriate she is, lunch with Jake and lunch with Lisa. So funny. My favorite line was when she said to Jake, "Yes, church is open right now, it's not Macy's." HILARIOUS!

NEW APARTMENT! So happy for Bethenny and Jason and Bryn. They need this! Cookie does too. I can't wait to see the transformation. Bethenny loves these types of projects and is so good at them!

As you can see by the previews. . lots of drama this season! Can't wait for it, and as always, I will be here to update you on the business side of things!

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.

xo,
Julie
