The Frankel File

Episode 12: Bravotv.com's Editor discusses the ratio of ladies to men at Lucky Cheng's and Nick's new figure.

May 7, 20120

Hello Bethenny fans. Like Bethenny did for Nick, I'm here to help you find the "namaste" in this episode. Let's recap our time in a Maggie-less world shall we?

Adios Maggie
As Bethenny so accurately predicted last week, Maggie decided to quit Team Skinnygirl. It's a strange turn of events (since most people don't quit jobs that take them to Mexico),  but even B mentions that this crazy place isn't for everyone. Julie feels bad that Maggie couldn't hang, but you never really know until someone is in the brunt of their job. God bless you Maggie, wherever you are. I hope your new job is filled with considerably more stability and nothing that irritates your eyes -- if that's what you were after!

This does put the team down another head before Julie leaves, meaning now more than ever it's time for Jason to decide if he wants to be a part of the business.

Jason's frustrated about this working together process, partly because sometimes even though he's handling things he needs Bethenny to throw her muscle around. And it results in another bust up, as they debate if Jason's doing enough. Then at a team meeting, they continue to wrestle over who exactly is in charge of the apartment project. But the bigger issue is who will step in when Julie leaves, as beyond the apartment project there are a lot of other balls to juggle. Jason doesn't want to work "for" Bethenny, and that seems to be the final hold up in the process. . .

Dr. Amador simplifies things by saying that him joining the business isn't complicated -- it's his feelings about the situation that are complicated. Dr. A thinks that Bethenny genuinely appreciates Jason and needs him to be a part of the business, so we'll see what works out.

Why the push for Jason to "work for Bethenny." Of course Bethenny would inspire the pants off of anyone because she is so passionate about her business. But isn't it more important for Bethanny to want Jason to be passionate in a field of his own choice. And as her doc says, have they thought of an exit strategy, if Jason changes his mind.

Where are the Hoppy's. I was shocked to see they weren't invited to her Birthday trip. Actually, I wasn't shocked. It seems like Bethenny is doing all she can to put distance between herself and the Hoppy's. I love Bethenny, but I truly think she is becomng mean. I hope she can catch herself before it's too late.

Bethenny, love, love, love You, Jason, Bryn and your show! Love the trip to Mexico episode, sorry Maggie couldn't hang with the Big Dawgs! You bought a necklace from the beach vendor.....turquoise and pearl, beautiful.....do you have any idea where he got it from or where I could get something similar at island prices......your loyal fan.....you make me smile every show.

Maggie left because Bethanny put her on the spot on TV by telling her she was worried that Maggie wasn't tough enough. It showed Maggie she had no faith in her, it hurt her feelings (but God knows, this is only about Bethanney's feelings) and she left that narcissist world of Bethanny's. Period. It makes me wonder why Julie is leaving as well, and why Jason will probably also leave. The main ingredient is Bethanney. She's too crazy.
