Bethenny Frankel

Bethenny talks about leaving baby Bryn for the first time and reflects on an amazing season.

on Aug 5, 20100

 

I was truly devastated by leaving Bryn for the first time. I love her so much that it broke my heart, and I didn't want to miss a single moment together. This is true love.

Jason really wants more children. I believe that part of it is his having lost his brother. He really wants two. I would do just about anything for him so it is a serious conversation.

Aaaaah, the burning of the book was so liberating. Nothing is worse than being knee deep in something that you know is crap. It was like being halfway from Cuba to Florida and not knowing whether to swim or go back. I went back. Thankfully, I'm almost halfway through Place of Yes and I think it will be really great.

Max really likes attention, so he'll do anything to get it. The sunscreen moment was quite awkward for all of us. I'm not sure why he needed sunscreen whilst wearing a shirt.

Jason and I met at a nightclub called Tenjune. In fact, my girlfriends and I called him "Tenjune" for six months. I was smiling for a camera then I put on a regular face. He walked up to me and said, "Are you ready to get the stick out of your ass?" He wanted to boogie down and dance. That was the kind of wise ass line that would get my attention. It caught me off guard and made me giggle. However, I never thought we'd be serious. He was a guy I saw if I had nothing going. Going out that night was the best move of my life.

As you saw, Ramona met Bryn and Alex also saw her while I was in the hospital and we spent a day by the pool this summer at the Montauk Yacht Club.

My favorite moment of the season was saying "I do!"

Thank you so much for your passion, loyalty and laughter. I have loved opening my heart and my life to you. It has been such an incredible journey and I wouldn't take back a minute of it.

Bethany, I love, love, love little Bryn. She is truly the cutest, sweetest little girl I have ever seen, and as a rule I don't favor little girls ever. I know you asked your very close assistant and friend to be Bryn's Godmother. Godparents are the ones you choose before God to care for your child if you (and spouse) should pass away. I was puzzled that you passed this honor on to RahRah (?) without mentioning her God Mother. Anyway, best of success to your little family and may Bryn be spoiled sweet always by her Grandma and Grandpa Hoppy

Bethany, I have always admired your quick wit (which was sometimes appreciated by others, but more often not). I never really watched your show (BGM) till I started working from home, but once I started, it was fun. I do have a question though - I work in medical research, and I was wondering did you really breast feed your daughter? And if so, for how long?

Bethenny, I loved you on Real Housewives and the first season of your show, but more recently I have a hard time watching. I want to like the show, but increasingly it has become more about you and your inappropriate behavior. Last night was embarrassing. The way you all walked into that restaurant cackling like 12-year-olds, was terrible and the way you drooled over the manager - inappropriate! It reminded me of the way you acted when the producer from Rachel Ray came to your apartment and you made him insanely uncomfortable. I dont imagine you would like Jason to behave that way. You also say rude things for no apparent reason about EVERYONE! You bark at everyone! I hope the show gets better, but I'm losing interest fast.

Bethany. I don't laugh that easily anymore but you crack me up. This Gina nanny is a 'hoot' as well. This is sitcom material. Love it. Keep it flowing.

Nick the Foodie on a "FOOD CRAWL" with Bethany... He's not being honest with Bethany about "not eating red meat"...because once when Bethany ran into him...she treated him to a HAMBURGER!!! I think, if I had a chance of being one of NYC's most popular chef's "head foodie" I would TOTALLY give up my no red meat rule!!!

Bethanny,

You have always been my absolute favorite but I must say I'm feeling a great dislike because of the way you treat or rathe mistreat Jason's parents. I've tried to understand that you came from no family so even more reason for you to understand and embrace Jason's love of his family. If you don't want to go to visit his parents - fine, just let Jason take Brynn and you can relax. FAMILY is number one Bethanny and you really need to get on board and quit this whinning about you want your own little family and not share moments with Jason's parents. You are so very lucky to have them in Brynn's life so quit talking about yourself and I'm getting completely bored with the whole therapist. Honestly Bethanny it's beginning to sound "me me me me me ". This is your issue and get over it

Love Jason. He is such a kind, loving individual and wants only the best for his family. Unfortunately, I believe Bethenny is going to "screw it up" by her negativity, "it's just who I am" comments, not moving away from her childhood and rejecting Jason's parents in her own nasty way. She is throwing her new family away and doesn't seem to be able to get out of "herself" long enough to realize what she doing. Also, why does she have to demean everything about Jason's life and upbringing (his life is the "norm", not hers). Hope Bethenny sees the light and begins to appreciate all the blessing she has been given in Jason and his parents. If they step out of her life, she will really experience what "unhappy" is.

Can't wait for your show! Your best move, besides getting married and having your baby, was getting your own show! True class!!! The housewives of everywhere, besides Beverly hills are on a downhill spiral! It's Bethenny forever in my house! Good luck with the new season can't wait to watch!!! Btw, I had a 2mth premee and he is now 17 getting ready to graduate, time flys by sooo fast! Enjoy every minute!

Just saw a rerun of your reunion. Don't blame Jason for you not being friends with Jill any longer. You make your own decisions. I have a feeling if Jason told you you couldn't be friends with someone (I doubt he would) that you would be friends with them even if you didn't want to just to prove a point LOL. As for Jill being materialistic, I agree, & it's a trait I don't like either. However, go take a look in your closet. Kettle, meet pot.

Bethany Getting Married! Ms. Frankel;

I am assuming you are retaining your maiden name on the show.

My comment is a bit different than "why are you doing so-in-so?” My question/comment is of a social/cultural nature.

We worry so about unemployment in this country. It seems to me that "Bethany Getting Married" and others like you could be leaders in the "re-employment" of Americans. I understand that much of what we purchase comes from abroad, China. India, etc., and, perhaps, some of that cannot readily be changed.

However, “Skinnygirl.” products could play some part in having your products not only initially created but, continuously made in America. While I have written my suggestion to “Fashion Show,” and “Project Runway,” you are a very "fashion-forward" woman. You, as well as your compadres on "the Real Housewives of . . ." could do much to promote young American designers. (I know these designers have done some outfits for the housewives but, each of you could do more to highlight these are the young "up-and-comers" (designers). In tandem, they can have a say in where their work is done, in where it continues to be done, making sure they have their garments produced in the U.S. and that they are very vocal about it. These may be the designers who are becoming the new faces of clothing design, also the "new faces of the garment, the schamata district.

President Reagan, though supposedly begun during the Kennedy years, killed millions of jobs by deregulation. Of course, a number of Presidents went before him, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, and Carter. Am I suggesting a return to pre-WWII "isolationism?" Of course not. But, there are certain industries that can move to the forefront when it comes to bringing jobs HOME to the U.S.

And, two of these industries . . . Skinnygirl and "The Real Housewives of . . .! Your "skinnygirl" line and the Housewives franchises, make you all "small business people," Mom-and-pop" so to speak. Each of you can determine who reproduces and where your products and fashions are made.

So, why can't "Skinnygirl" and "the Real Housewives of . . . and the appropriate designers revert to the ideology of the old song of the '70s. "Look for the union label, when you are buying that coat, dress, or blouse. Remember somewhere our union's sewing, our wages going to feed kids, and run the house. We work hard, but who's complaining? Thanks to the I.L.G. we're paying our way? So, always look for the union label, it says we're able to make it in the U.S.A.!"

Now, of course, the I.L.G. is the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union, and I am in no way suggesting we return either to "unionism" or to a "sexist" organization.

However, what I am suggesting is that your aforementioned "reality stars" whenever possibly achievable, make sure your products and purchases are made in and grown in the U.S.A. and, make it exceedingly obvious that that is what is being done.

All of you do charity work or have charities to which you contribute. Perhaps this is a way, among your other charitable offerings in which you each are able assist, though in perhaps a smaller way, to our garment workers, product designers, and others previously of 7th Avenue who lost their jobs “en masse” to once again get back to work . . . you and the designers whom you wear, your margarita mixes, etc., can provide a chance for talented Americans to place their wares before the American public . . . ways they most likely would never have known, had it not been for your programs.

I enjoy your shows and am quite taken with the talents of some of the participants, how they are able to write, design, etc.

Love your style, your wit, and for sharing those mom moments. As you know, motherhood changes everything..and makes us all so emotional over things that we never expected. As long as you keep a wonderful nanny, and supportive husband you can have more kids and do the career thing. Even if life gets crazy, which it does for all of us diva moms, you won't (permanently) regret having more than one child.

Thanks for making my husband laugh and realizing we all go a bit nuts...as moms. We had our 2nd child and the whole sleep deprivation thing...OMG.. We are with you on thar one! Hope to see more of your lovely and fun family in the years to come.

U turn a lot of folks off with your comments about the judges but I know that it is your way but u did the best u could and congrats for coming in second place on Skating with the Stars. I guess having a baby and marriage did not mellow u out but continue to be a risk taker. Happy Holidays to u and your family.

Bethenny,

Congratulations on the recent birth of Bryn, what I want to know is if you will be doing a second season of Bethenny Getting Married? Of all the cast of The Housewives of New York you always seemed real along and with Ramona and Alex. I was so happy that you decided NOT to do another season. I would love to see you and Jason and of course Bryn this coming season to see how much the three of you have grown as a family. So, is there a second season of Bethenny Getting Married? in the works?

I miss your show. The other shows are horrible. Mean women hurting one lady on the DC show, mean women hurting one lose woman on the Atlanta show, and a mean man hurting a sweet young man and great woman on a flipping show. I want your show!

Really (pls read Bethenny)

Bethenny, you are hilarious. I am a day late, and a $ short. I just had the biggest chuckle. I'm watching episode 9 online ( I live aboard so I get nothing on time) and when you made mentioned of, ...if Jason stepped out on you and what you would do.... Did you see his facial expression.... F_-ing hilarious. Whew, this is what I do to unwind after a stressful day of work. YOU are so REAL. WE LOVE YOU. You make me feel so normal, because I relate to you. Don't be surprise if you this show win an Academy Award. This is a GREAT reality show... got to go now. I must finish the episode and rewind that part. Believe you me, Jason and you are a match made in heaven, a lovely couple. I love you Bethenny.

Bethenny you are the most real reality show that I have watched I want to see more of baby Bryn and Jason. You guys make a wonderful couple and I want to see the grandparents with the baby. Just take it easy on Jason's mom she with your craziness and wildness she is not use to that at all. That family really loves you and now you finally have the family that you never had.

Love you Bethenny and can't wait for season 2, I bet Jill wish she was a lot different toward you now and good please do not have her on your show

I loved this season & I was so happy for you & your family. I watch you from the very beginning on NY city housewives. So to finally see you have your family & your happiness I cried so much (and I never cry). I hope that you return for a 2nd season & so on..I would love to see how you, Jason & Bryn are doing. Oh and there was a comment from one of your fans that said you should be a "talk show host" that would be so cool. I would pay for those tickets.. I just wanted to send you my love & wish you all the love that you so very much deserve.. Sincerly Norma

Bethany I saw your segment on the Doctors tv show this past week, and I have to say that I had to laugh when you used the word "sc*ew", while describing a scene at the airport with a stroller... I would have loved to have seen the faces of the doctors on the panel. Especially, dr Travis, he is a bit stuffy at times.. I do know the show comes on at a time of day when they sometimes have to caution about graphic language or scenes, so I figured you threw that one in on them...you being you...which is why we all watched NY HW's and your show....Are you bored with the DC show as I am? or do you even bother to watch it? I do think Cat is the most interesting cast member. Would love to see your blog about the show and see how you sum this show up...hope all is well in your world...

No, Bethenny, thank YOU for allowing us into your life. I always liked you on HWofNY but I was so glad when you left for your own show. What an absolute joy to laugh with you. I so enjoyed your show. Jason is so wonderful and I am glad the two of you found each other. Bryn is adorable and lucky to have you and Jason. You and Jason will figure out the 2nd baby thing just like you have figured out everything else. Your in-laws are great. Lucky you. My husband is also a big supporter of your show. He loved the show. He doesn't watch the other "Housewife" shows because he can't stand the fighting but because of the laughter in your show he is a big fan. I hope they renew the show. However, if you and Jason want your new family to have a private life, I will understand (not too sure my husband will, however). I wish you the absolute very best in life. You deserve it. You finally have a loving family and I couldn't be happier for you. Can't wait for your new book to come out.

Hi Bethenney, I just wanted to say that you are my favorite of the Housewives, you are so funny and you keep it real. The other wives were kinda two faced, and I think you are the only one that had any sense. And the show Bethenney getting married? I loved it, couldn't wait to watch every week. Hope to see another season of the Housewives of New York. Oh and your Baby is the cutest. Congratulations! You deserve the best.....

Bethenny I think you are great, because you speak your mind and you don't care who is around or who is listening (just like me). I do have to say though, I was a little disappointed when I just saw you on the talk show with some Rachel chick who I have never heard of, nor will I ever care to hear of again, and it didn't seem like you were yourself. You seemed very thin and not very happy like the old Bethenny. You were always so happy go lucky no matter what was going on, and on that show you seemed to be following that crazy, unhappy, synical bitch sitting next too you. I am SOOOOOO hoping that was a fluke. If it was just make sure you are never on another show with the pathetic woman that needs to realize she is not all that!! Maybe she should go get her hair done and she would feel better about herself, and quit taking it out on us viewers. Looks like a dog was in heat on top of her head. Just saying
