Stop and Realize

Julie's glad she had a few moments to reflect with Bethenny and thinks anyone would be lucky to date her sister.

Back to the Hamptons! This time I get to go! I love Montauk! I knew it would be a fun weekend and I wouldn't have to work "that much." With Jackie and Maggie the Intern around things are a lot less stressful!

Isn't Dwayne hilarious? Having him on the Skinnygirl team has made my life much easier and also made it a lot funnier. He jumps right on board with Bethenny's inappropriateness --- making me more and more uncomfortable!

In the past I have always brought my friends to the annual Skinnygirl Party! This year was no different! This time I brought my best friend and roommate -- my sister Joanie.

Of course, my sister is single, so Bethenny goes on matchmaking duty and finds someone to set her up with! Enter Matt. I have known Matt for a while while working with him on Skinnygirl Daily business, but this is the first weekend he is around to hang out. All I know is that I was staying out of Bethenny's matchmaking plan! Not something I need to be involved in!

I am not sure if the "match" was made, but what I do know is that all of us had an amazing time at the Skinnygirl party! My sister is kind, intelligent, and BEAUTIFUL! Any guy would be lucky to have one date with her!

Bethenny and Jason TORTURE each other, but they are also in love with one another. I always have to remind them that they have only known each other for four years. Things aren't going to be perfect all the time. I love when Dwayne said "Bryn will be the boss soon." So true. She runs the show already, I think! Anyway, I think the boat trip is a wonderful idea! Roughing it in a new environment will show them what they are made of!

I love when Bethenny makes me shut off work for a few moments and hang out.

We really have come such a long way from her old apartment, and things are so different now. I like to remind her of how much she has grown and really put things in perspective for her. I feel like sometimes that is a part of my job and a part of my friendship with her. Making her stop and realize just how far and how much her life has changed!

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
