Julie explains what was going through her mind as it was the beginning of the end with Bethenny.

Well everyone it's the beginning of the end as I attempt to hand Jackie the reins of everything in this episode. Bethenny speaks of me having "senioritis," but in fact I was trying to let Jackie take over so that I can help to answer any questions.

When they were preparing for Aspen, Dawa was so cute. She gives honest answers and that is so refreshing. I bet she never thought her nanny job would involve fashion.

I love that Bethenny and Brooke went searching for art on the street. They found some unique pieces that will go great in the new apartment.

The Aspen trip was so fun for me to watch because I wasn't there, so I was seeing everything from your perspective. Bethenny is a pretty awesome snowboarder, and Jackie and Jason could hang too. It was a blessing that I wasn't there because I would have for sure tried to keep up and probably injured myself.

I wish only the best for you. The chemistry between you and Bethenny will be surely be missed. You make her feet stay firmly on the ground. As Bryn's godmother you will never be out of their lives. Bein a godmother myself no comes the fun, you get to come in and spoil her rotten and then leave. When you get that ring from Drew you besure to pop in your head and say "Guess What?" Because we will all be excited for you.

Here is my take (from a 65 y.o. feminist)...I think deep inside you are disappointed that Bethanny has not given you a "promotion" and a bigger role in her company, with your own assistant. I am getting weary of Bethenny and I was one of her biggest original supporters, but not so much now. She seems to be getting a little full of herself, buying into her own hype. That will destroy your brand and your likeability factor faster than anything anybody else could do to you. Bethenny should have acknowledged your contribution to her company and I believe she will regret not having done so down the road. Life is more than dollar bills, she claims to know that but I am not so sure she is putting her relationships above the greenback. Good luck to you and I hope you find a company/position where you are appreciated.

Can't wait to hear what you've been up to since you left Skinny Girl....or...did you really leave? You are the calm, kind Ying to Bethenny's Yang Dang Son of a Whang! Really enjoyed getting to "know" you on this show, Julie. God Bless!
