Julie Plake

Julie discusses Bethenny and Jason's ability to cope with disaster.

on Mar 19, 20120

This episode was definitely interesting for me, as I had heard all about the trip, but could not have imagined the stress and panic Jason, Bethenny, the other couple, and Dr. Amador must have been going through when they were at sea.

I told Bethenny that I thought the boat ride would be full of team building exercises, but I could have never imagined this! I was proud of them for staying so calm, as they must have been terrified.

There isn't a lot to talk about as you saw firsthand what happened. My feelings were up and down the whole time. I think Dr. Amador is so great. He acted as a true professional and got them to shore safely. It was a team effort.

I was on shore -- actually in Pittsburgh -- visiting family, when I heard that they were lost at sea. At first I thought, "So typical," and laughed, but as the hours wore on I was very concerned.

Julie, Bethenny is so fortunate to have such a caring, loyal friend and Chief of Chaos. It truly must be chaos at times and you always know what page everyone should be on. I frankly don't know how she could manage without you and I hope that she appreciates you and all you have done for her over the yrs. That said, you must do what is best for YOU and if you don't know than stay the course until you do know. All the best to a great gal!

Love you Julie. I hope you slow down long enough to figure out what is best for YOU. You will do great no matter where or what you do. Best Julie.

Julie:

You are the best friend ever. I can only hope that your association with the Boppy family will reward you endlessly. I'm also hoping that you will find your Mr. Right and raise your kids together. It would be awesome.

I can see a day when all of you will be so rich you'll never actually have to work again. Hang in there. It's just around the corner! I know Bethenny is generous and so is Jason. They truly were made for each other. Relationships are always complicated.That is what makes them fascinating. You are just another hard working, honest and caring woman making her way in the world. You chose a very public arena and Lord knows NYC is big time.

I think Bethenny is an amazing woman & I relate to so many of the difficulties she's had in her life - as a child & a wife. The issue with Jason & his parents is one that I have in my marriage. The day they got married, Jason chose to make a life with Bethenny and make their own family. He should cleave to his wife & their family unit should be his #1 priority. Choosing his parents & making Bethenny feel like she's always wrong or the only one with problems has the potential to tear them apart. I sure hope he will man-up and stand by his wife & that they will be happy.
