Next we see Bethenny get together with Jason and some of her old buddies from the race track. Over a sizable Italian dinner (and, as Bethenny promised, some serious Sopranos-style chatter), they discuss the difference between her father Bobby and her stepdad John. Bethenny does have some great memories with her dad (and with his friends) so despite all the rough patches, she has made it through.
But it wasn't all good times, and Jason tries his best to understand how Bobby could have abandoned Bethenny for all those years. Louie defends both sides of the equation, and it's true that there's more to family than just blood. In the end, all those issues were part of the bigger plan. Everything had to happen the way it did to make even that dinner possible, let alone all of B's life. It's good to see Bethenny getting some levity on the situation, as painful as it is.
Bethenny takes her tour to Wendy Williams, which becomes less of a jovial talk show visit and more of a fact finding mission. B's been approached about some six-week test options for her talk show, so she wants to get all the details about how the whole scenario works.
