Over margaritas, which is the best way to break any news, Jason drops a little bomb on the group – they have to be out of their current apartment in 30 days. Yipes. Bethenny knows that the timeline is "when donkeys fly" for the new place, so it seems there will need to be some interim living.
Julie's reaction to this shocking news: laughter, because it ain’t her problem!
Less than enthused by the news -– Maggie. It's interesting to see that Maggie looks particularly terrified here (and on the ensuing boat ride). Bethenny Frankel can smell that kind of fear and she doesn't like it. If Maggie can't get her "sherpa" on, it seems like she might not be ready to run with the Skinnygirls.
I will give her some credit and say that boat ride didn't seem like the calm relaxing afternoon anyone had planned. Of course, this begs the question: why do they keep getting on boats?
We’ll have to see if Maggie boards another boat or returns to Skinnygirl HQ again.
I absolutely loved this episode!
The promos made it look mostly sad, but, in fact, so much was HILARIOUS in the true why-I-love-Bethenny format.
Highlights: 1. Bethenny and Jason pretending to be "Marianne" and "Chris" to their new BFF, Liz. I saw here the interaction between Jason and Bethenny that I loved from previous seasons. 2. The "near death deep discount" B demanded for the necklace after the eventful boat ride--too funny! 3. Although there were some tense moments towards the end, as Jason expressed his concern/depression over not finding his life's passion for work yet (and I thought Bethenny was very understanding and empathetic in listening to him and providing good feedback re: how long it took for her, etc), mostly throughout the episode I saw loving glances exchanged often, and a sweet family enjoying being together.
Isn't that what REALLY matters? Not the books, the SkinnyGirl cocktails, all the assistants constantly around, the mag covers, the nutrition bars, the face/makeup products, the talk show.
Maybe just focus on the family and your love for each other??? You want them to be there when the rest is just a memory. Just sayin'
I would like to tell you what i think about your show. First of all you are a doll and of course smart but. I would love it if when you are asking jason a question please please allow him to answer, you always interupt, over talk him or answer the question yourself. If you were quiet for a minute and not say a word i bet you would find out a whole lot more. Please let him finish his sentence. watch your own show and you will see what i am talking about. Why do you invite all your girls on vacation with jason and talk about business, this is really not a vacation. I bet jason would love to invite a guy friend when your with your girls. I don't think your staff can really cut lose when their boss is with them on a vacation. I think any women would feel so blessed to have inlaws like you have, you don't really have a problem that they want to see you all the time, the real problem would be if they didn't want to see you at all. I do feel your doctor agrees with everything you say. He told you when you start a family you decide what you want to do like on halloween. I feel since you have a baby it is not all your decision how you want to raise your child, it is something you and jason want as a family, not all what bethanny wants to raise her daughter. I think it is wrong and hurtfull for you to argue with jason about his parents, it seems they just want to allow you into their hearts and you wont allow yourself to be loved. One day i wish you would wake up let the past go and enjoy your life, your husband loves you, you have a healthy daughter and your beyond rich, you have it all, what more could you want. It seems your doctor is not working out for you, hows it working for you, you have the same old problems. bela
