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!

Blow-Up

Bravotv.com's Editor recaps the hair dryer-filled Season 3 finale.

Hello Bethenny fans! And now we've come to the end. Season 3 has drawn to a close but not before a few additional pitchers of margaritas were imbibed and tears were shed. Let's recap shall we.

The Designated Drinker
We open with the gang at Tortilla Flats, celebrating the holidays with copious Skinnygirls. Even Dwayne has been given the night off so that he may quench his gullet with tequila -- and thank god for that. I loved him before, and I was sure I was going to love him even more drunk. And I was right! Plus it was his idea to invite Nick -- which is always the right thing to do.

And the gang needed all the drinks and entertainment they could get because it was Julie's last shindig. More drinks. More shots. More celebrations all around. Drink until you forget what a strange crew you've surrounded yourself with.

Stop the Gossip
Next B jaunts to what will be Julie's last photoshoot. Bethenny looking slightly less than her best is having a hard time focusing. She's feeling teary through makeup but hanging in there, until Julie starts showing her photos, and that's when all is lost. . .

She begins to sob uncontrollably, to the point that she must dry her eyes with a hair dryer. . .It works. . .

Talk That Talk
After a harrowing morning of nipple control (someone call HR) and VIP Christmas cards, Bethenny sneaks away for a top secret phone call. Jason, ever the spy, attempts to intercept, and so Bethenny finally decides to reveal the news: they got the talk show! She'll be spending the summer in L.A. making it happen. She tells the team and begins the process of plotting how the six-week run will work. Everyone seems ready to make it work so cheers to even more changes!

And then it's officially goodbye JuJu (how cute!) time. As Byrn, says "Happy Birthday" the gang tries to hold it together through the tears. Julie is going to have a lovely new life in Pittsburgh. Congrats and good luck lady!

The Big Reveal
And then it's go time. After packing up the final elements (including Bethenny's sex toy box), the Hoppys prepare to start fresh.

And the place is uh-mazing! It's very Bethenny -- lots of white with accents of red (and Skinnygirl). And the bar! The Bar is exactly like Bethenny imagined it -- with a slide out bar that lets you have fancy parties with help. It has everything: an insane office, a man den, a room for Bryn, a palatial Elle Decor-feeling kitchen and a sick, sick bathroom. Oh right, and the closet! Bethenny's insane closet is all she could have dreamed. As Mariette clarifies it's a dressing room! And it all came together without anyone killing each other. Did you ever think it would happen?

But no sooner than the final baubles are hung in the dressing room, than Bethenny gets a call that the talk show is happening sooner than she thought. They have but a mere month in the apartment before it's time to be in Los Angeles. And before that can even be processed, Bryn knocks over a vase -- sending Bethenny to the blow dryer and shattering what pristine normalcy there once was. Typical.

And that's it! Thanks for reading this season. Until we meet again B fans!
