The Frankel File

Bravotv.com's Editor recaps the hair dryer-filled Season 3 finale.

on May 27, 20120

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. . .

I'll never forget the first time I saw Bethenny, she was a guest on WWHL. I wasn't a HWNY fan yet. From that night forward, I became a Bethenny Frankel Fan, she truly was my BFF! I have since caught up on her past housewives shows, Bethenny Ever After shows, and her Skinnygirl quest. And since Ellen is my favorite talkshow host, it was the inevitable that these two personalities (Ellen and Bethenny) would cosmically come together! The irony of it, I'll be front and center for the launch of Bethennys new talkshow (brief work leave) just as I was back when I watched Ellen's nighttime sitcom end and Ellen's talkshow begin, some years ago. (Only then I was transitioning from 15 yr job). Bethenny, you are truly like a girlfriend, coworker or neighbor that I would absolutely adore! Thanks for being my BFF! Best wishes to you, Bryn and Jason!

Congrats on your new talk show. I'll be watching for it. I imagine this means no more Bethenny Ever After, which I love!! Out of all the housewives I love you the most. You're really, direct and fun to watch. Just one little suggestion......take time to enjoy your baby and the man you love. I know you need to grab the opportunities while they're hot, but take time to be with them. You have a wonderful family and I would hate to see that change.

Bethenny......YOU HAVE ARRIVED!!!!
