Episode 6: Bravotv.com's Associate Editor discuses Bethenny's many classes and clashes this week.

Mar 26, 20120

Hello Bethenny fans! We're back on dry land this week and there was lots happening, including what I know we’ve all been waiting for -- more Dwayne!

Yes, Dwayne was back in action being hilarious, making up words, and not knowing the exact number of kids he has. But let's start at the very beginning, shall we?

Cookie: Secret Agent Dog
After a lovely dinner with the Skinnygirl team (at which they decided just how fabulous they all are), Bethenny and Julie are hard at work when Cookie's dog-walker Paulo drops by. Paulo explains that Cookie is actually incredibly well behaved at the dog park. Bethenny, having known Cookie for years, does not buy this for a second, and so a couple of blonde wigs and strategically drawn scarves later, she and Julie are at the park surveying the scene.

I will say I expected Cookie to be doing something far more salacious. I pictured her running some sort of doggie gambling ring, or smoking cigarettes with the other dogs, or I don’t know something. But she actually was behaving, which might be the most surprising thing of all.

Bethenny is bright, beautiful and brilliant. She has a quick wit and a great personality. Jason, Bethenny and Bryn make the perfect family. Every family has ups and downs. They certainly are strong enough to withstand anything.

The haters are jealous and parasites. Don't give them any oxygen or sun and they will go away. Keep walking tall and proud.

As for Bethenny's Mother, She's obviously very mentally ill. A mother does not attack her daughter like that. Bethenny is not alone. There are millions of mothers just like her out there. In Show Biz you find lots of Stars with no mother or an ill mother. Look at Marylyn Monroe. Bethenny has a great support group though. Lots of friends and a great Husband.

Funny, for an extremely busy business woman she seems to spend a lot of time wih her daughter. Actually more than some people I know and they have regular jobs and lives. The haters need to get a life. It makes them feel better about themselves when they say negative things about others. Plain and simple her mother is an idiot! Any mother, whether fact or fiction, does not write about their child in a tabloid magazine period! Basically who are any of us to judge or critique someone else's life?

I was upset when i saw the part about your mother selling her stroy to star if its true don't waste your time hating her remember she is jealous of you because despite her your happy with a loving marriage and a beautiful well adhusted daughter who everyone knows you love beyond anything in this world. Your daughter will never not want anything to do with you like you do with your mother. Live above the haters because they just want what you have.

I'm a fan of B's but I thought her mother's assertions rang true.

Love the show, last nights episode was much more lighthearted and fun to watch, especially since so many are bashing Bethanny for opening her life to us.....I love every part of this show, but I cannot stand the haters that blast her on her blog the next day.....She is an awesome person to watch! Her whole staff seems to love her, Jason obviously does and Brynn so far says "mama" more than "dada" so Im not exactly sure why people keep posting hateful things.....

Oh Bethenny- You're like an exposed ungrounded hotwire because jason is pushing your emotional buttons because you're squeezing him into a ziploc which he feels is suffocating so he pushes your most raw emotional buttons in a primal defensive move. If you cut all that out and just make the guy President and co-CEO you'll be fabulous again.

Bravo, why are you showing such limited viewings of this show. It's never repeated on another day, it's not on demand TV, and you don't show the previous episode before the new episode. I'm a fan, but unless I watch it on the exact day and time, I miss it. Please fix this situation ASAP.
