Julie shares why she and Bethenny had to spy on Cookie and what she learned in CPR class.

on Mar 26, 20120

This episode was full of team building and bonding sessions!

New York is full of great food, and Bethenny knows where a lot of these restaurants are, so I always know that a girls' night out dinner will be delicious. I like to give advice to my friends (in this case Bethenny) and I think I am pretty good at it. However, a lot of the time I say things and then completely forget the advice that I just gave. I get so in the moment. . .

Cookie is just like a child at elementary school. The child is so good for the teacher and the sweetest in class, but then the child gets home and is a nightmare. This is how Cookie is -- behaves great for Paulo and when she gets home to us, is a troublemaker. Going to spy on Cookie was how I could prove this to Bethenny. The wigs and costumes though were simply because we need to be ridiculous in all we do. We have work to be doing. Why are dressing up and dog watching? I know, because this job is like NO other!

Hi Julie,

I love, love, love the show! And I love you Julie! I was so upset when you said you didn't know if you were staying. And actually you guys were crying at the end of tonight's episode. I hope that is not any indicator that you are leaving?!! You guys are killing us here! Even if you don't stay as Bethenny's assistant, I hope you do stay on the show as her friend.

Btw - I sent a book for Bethenny to sign and I never received it back. Can you check on it and see if it is there somewhere? If not, I can send another one. Thanks a lot Julie! Dawn :)

For as good of a mommy as Bethenny, is I can't believe she didn't know that Cookie was like that! But I guess we all underestimate/overestimate our kids (depending on how you think of it)....

It was hilarious to watch and I remember when I first saw my lil boy, who is the biggest barker, around other dogs, I was in complete and total shock, although I did not have a wig on ;) I kind of wish I did now!

Julie, I hope Bethany knows how lucky she is to have you. Jason too as if you weren't there to calm her down she probably would have left him by now! You HAVE to be on Watch What Happens Live! If Jenny can be on there, then so should you! You would be alot of fun.

Hi Julie,

I just wanted to reach out to you and offer that I am so impressed with you and I relate to you, even more than Bethenny....dare, I say. I would like to ask you how you were able to get into the position of "Coordinator of Chaos", initially? I am a college graduate,a proficient writer, organized, task oriented, intuitive and I enjoy a good challenge. I am a great 'problem solver'. I'm on the West coast, and watch the 'show', religiously. I admire Bethenny and her achievements, being a former Corporate Executive, myself. However, I'm more comfortable 'behind' the scenes and more effective, I believe. Any advice you could offer, in terms of getting into a position such as yours would be greatly appreciated. Respectfully,

Terry Lynne

Your under cover mission cracked me up. Especially when you said to Bethenny that you couldn't be seen together. Why not? You were in disguise! LOL....Loved your little Lucy and Ethel moment.

Julie, I almost wet myself tonight watching the show. I have never laughed so hard at the TV as I was watching your and B donning the wigs and scarfs and spying on Cookie. That is something I would do. I have my own queen dog at home and she would give Cookie a run for the Bi@@h award. When your dogs are your babies you treat them like your kids and I have to say I am glad to see someone else as nuts as I am. Also I have an OCD daughter just like B and she is always admitting to it too. I think it is great that they both own up to it and are proud of the good things it brings to life. Being a neat freak is not a bad thing. Love the show and I think B would be lost without you !!!!
