Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

Julie is proud to work for historical figure, Benjamin Franklin, and discusses manscaping.

I am not a HOARDER! You working girls know how your desk has to have everything from a pair of shoes to an extra set of makeup to our gym clothes! With the small office I try to hide it under the desk! Just following my assistant protocol -- always be prepared!

Excited that Bethenny met back up with Nick. The Food Crawl Falafel blog is going to be awesome! They really had some good food and some quality time discussing "many" topics. Who knows? Maybe more men will give threading a chance. Like Bethenny said, "No one loves a unibrow."


Who doesn't love a girls' weekend? I seem to always be having girls vacations, but I haven't really seen Bethenny go on one in a long time, so I was thrilled she got to head to Montauk for one! I was a little like a mother sending her child off to college when Bethenny got in the car. It's so funny how I get nervous when she goes somewhere without me! I have to remember that she got by when I wasn't around!

So glad that B has great friends. Between Hoda, Teri, and her girls from Montauk, she is really lucky to surround herself with great people (when I'm not around. . . haha). And they all love Skinnygirl cocktails and know how to have a good time! I am proud to be apart of the close-knit circle she has created!

Now, for the whole NO BLACKBERRY RULE! Great! Bethenny needs time to unwind and get away from the "media" world! I hope it continues. If you notice though, the entire weekend she doesn't have the 'Berry!

Now -- paddle boarding. These types of situations that she gets herself into crack me up. She can create a Skinnygirl empire, but seems to have trouble with water sports and opening Bryn's toys! And then. . .it never ends! BEN FRANKLIN? Looks like I work for a historical figure according to that guy!

Hope you are enjoying the season so far! Xo Julie

PS: THANK YOU ALL for the constant love on Twitter and this blog! You all rock and I am so happy I have your support!

Blow-Up'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!
