Bethenny Frankel

Bethenny talks skinny dipping, hunting iguanas, decorating the baby's nursery, and concerns about motherhood.

on Jul 16, 20100

 

I have to reach out and really thank you for all for watching and embracing BGM. I really opened up my life to you, and I'm so thrilled about the success of the show. I truly appreciate all of your constant support which is really why I work so hard.

I chose st. Bart for our honeymoon because it is such a picturesque place that is Europe meets the Caribbean. There are incredible private beaches, amazing restaurants and lots to do. It is way overpriced which you need to beware, and the natives can definitely be rude to Americans. Take that for what it's worth. Also, the clothes are beautiful, yet also too expensive. A lot of what I wore was from Old Navy. Visit www.bethenny.com to see where I bought everything else.

As for the skinny dipping scene - Jason and I are often carefree. We were so excited about how far we had come that it literally was a metaphor when we took the plunge.

I mean, seriously, is there anyone else in the world that would have to clean iguana poop in their honeymoon suite? We still cry laughing when we talk about it. Ironically, it was a honeymoon highlight. All I care about is laughter.

Jason wasn't offended when I was hesitant about taking his last name. Jason doesn't get easily offended or he wouldn't be married to me. He really understands me as a person, so he knows what an adjustment taking his name would be.

Love your show! and congrats on the baby and new hubby, you look so happy and in love, funny about the beer and breastfeeding the Lactation Society recommends that and I had heard it from a few women, so ignore any negativity if it is medically recommended (a small amount) do worry what others say. I love the black bathing suit from Huit, I must buy it but having a hard time locating one for myself their home page has no shopping links or suggestions on stores. Anyway congrats and your a girl after my own heart keep it up.

mamma to be (my miracle first baby)

First of all,I want to say YEAH BETHANNY!!!!! You are an awesome business woman and have come into your own with your beautiful family. You have gone through so many things which only make you really look at your husband and daughter,& say how truly lucky you are. Everything else becomes the icing on the cake. I admire you & your growth. And for all the haters: Give Em the Bronx Cheer.

I've only just clicked through the pictures and it appears you are breastfeeding - I don't think that drinking alcohol and breastfeeding mix. Whatever you ingest is transmitted through your milk.

I have to say what a touching episode tonight was. It was so genuine and full of love. I am very happy for you, Jason, Bryn and the grandparents. Good luck and God Bless.

OK, I only have one question. What is the diet and exercise plan that you Bethenny had during your pregnancy. I am trying so hard to not gain all of this weight, but no matter what I seem to do it keeps getting worse and worse. You look stunning pregnant!!! As well as post baby. Congrats on your new little one!! And please pass the secrets along.

Bethenney: I love your show. I now have my pregnant daughter watching your show too. I think you have sold her on the epidural! I have been searchng to no avail for the green and pink printed elephant you got in episode 6 when you were shopping for the nursery. My daughter has wanted an elephant theme for her baby since before she was pregnant. Would someone be able to tell me the company who makes it so that I can potentially find it by searching the company's product line?

Bethenny & Jason,

Congratulations on your new life together. I know you have been asked this questions many times - but here it goes again - what is the name of the song you danced to first at your wedding. It is so beautiful and fitting.

Thanks and to a wonderful life to your new family,

Kalola

Bethenny, thank you so much for showing us quirky, outspoken, independent girls that you can have it all as long as you stay true to yourself.

There are no words to explain how much I love your show. May God continue to bless you, Jason, Bryn, and the entire Hoppy family.

Saying it..Like it is!

HEY,"VIEWER 3" about your comments on 07/23/2010 @9:34am

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD....What are you saying? The nudity is not over the top! You need to remember that they are still honeymooners, they are very much in love, and they both have beautiful bodies! I only wish my husband and I could do something like that. I'm sure the neighbors are happy that we don't though! lol.

Please try and look at the partial nude scenes as natural, free, and beautiful and remember this isn't a Saturday morning cartoon.

Bethenny & Jason enjoy your bodies, skinny dip, shower and do whatever else makes you happy without your clothes on! (wink,wink). Enjoy all of this while you can and whenever you can, because the unfortunate truth is that your bodies will not stay like they are now forever!

Finally, about the panties. Julie wanted to be with Bethenny to share in this moment and that is why Max was sent to get the "granny panties" and to be quite honest it was a heck of a lot funnier watching Max shop for them than Julie.

p.s. I loved his comment about the money and years spent in College and here he was shopping for underwear. Now that was funny!

Saying it..Like it is!

I just LOVE your show. I am laughing most of the time. You have a great husband who accepts your sometime "off the cuff" humor and so does your audience. When I saw you giving CPR to the doll and then when you added your commentaries as you were doing it...I just died with laughter. It was sooooo funny!!! I called all my friends to make sure they were watching so we could all laugh together. I can't wait for the next episode!!

Another faithful viewer.

Thanks for sharing it all with BRAVO, Bethenny! Your show is bigger than FRIENDS, JERRY SEINFELD, SURVIVOR etc... No one could ever write You and Team Bethenny and that's why it's so fantastic. Please keep going for the viewers sake, it's a great way to enjoy, laugh and cry every week! I'm trying to get used to Jason's new look but, he's so cute damn handsome without all that facial hair! Although, if you guys like it that's all that matters. I'll learn how to roll with it!

I definately would give up 2kt of diamond's or and arm for a 24/7 baby nurse! Lucky you~

Thanks for all of it....congrat's...enjoy and snap a million photo's! She'll be 18 years old before you know it!

Bethenny,

I've watched all your episodes and have to say I love the show. I applaud you for being so open with your life. You were a beautiful mother to be and I'm so excited to see little Bryn. I know you will be a wonderful mother, I can see it in your face. You and Jason deserve all the happiness you have now and will have in the future. Blessings on all three of you! :)

Love you, but I can't believe you had nothing ready for the baby! I know she came early, but really! You are a nut girl. And your poor assistants running around like lunatics trying to take care of everything at the last minute. I almost had a nervous breakdown watching it unfold. I know you are busy, but what the heck happened to the furniture you picked out at Bellini? I get a stomach ache just thinking about it! Anyway, good luck on your new adventure as a mommy.

First I would like to give a bit congrats to you and Jason on the baby. You guys were right on your honeymoon. Things do change from here. Instead of it being Beth and Jason's time, everything for the next 18 years at least :) will be Bethany's , Jason's, and the Baby's time. Which you will find is a wanderful thing. Life is so awesome, and you guys created another piece of the big puzzle!! Best wishes to the both of you. Really love the show.

Dear Bethenny,congratulations to you and Jason on the lovely wedding and the birth of your beautiful baby.I really enjoy the show. Please ask Julie to treat Max with a little kindness, he is such a nice and funny guy. No need for her to be so bossy. Best Wishes.

Each week I think this is my favorite episode and then the current episode comes on and it becomes my favorite. Thank you Bethenny for letting us into your life. I think this is the most wonderful show on TV. It is funny, emotional and lovely to watch. I felt your pain with the car seat and stroller not an easy task to master. I also felt for you in labor and I am sure all of the women watching felt the same way. This show is so refreshing and enjoyable to watch. My husband watches this show with me and would never do that with the housewives franchise. We love you, Jason, Bryn, Julie and the whole Hoppy family.

Bethenny, I have never ever posted to a television blog or anything else like that but I just had to do this.

I just watched your wedding show, your honeymoon show and your birthing show. Honestly, Bethenny, I'm so impressed with you. Really. You're so real, so honest, so warm and sweet. And you're funny! I love the way you make fun of yourself. Stay that way. It's healthy.

I really feel that meeting Jason has enriched you in ways you would not have otherwise been enriched. Jason and his family are lucky to have you. And, you're lucky to have the. What a wonderful, warm and caring family they are. You fit right in.

You're embracing all these new experiences with a grace that is astounding to me, particularly, because of your own background, you have little to no frame of reference for it all.

You're very inspiring, Bethenny. Best wishes to you and your lovely family.

I don't expect to see this posted but I hope that you get to see it anyways. Love the show, you and Jason are soooo blessed! Any baby would be so lucky to have such loving parents. It was nice to see Mr. & Mrs. Hoppy (the in-laws) over the moon about you and baby Bryn! You and Jason have made them the happiest grandparents in the universe!! Thank-you for sharing with all of us viewers. Your lack of negative drama is refreshing. Also, you are so good at making me LMFAO!!! Thank-you!!

Bethaney and Jason I love your show,and I love you guys!

I like you, I like how you "say it how it is". I think Jason is a sweetie. We think that the nudity is a bit over the top though..although it is slightly blurred, it's still a bit much when there are young viewers.

You seem to enjoy exposing yourself and what was with you making Max go through your panty drawer and not that other assistant (female) to pack your panties.

You are a funny personality but sometimes it's a little ridiculous.

We do enjoy watching your show but sometimes it's like you are trying too hard to be funny or acting and in the beginning you were more real.

Keep it real girl! Congrats on your marriage and your baby

Bethenny, I love your show. Whenever I feel down, all I have to do is watch and I start laughing. You are soooo hilarious and I don't think you know it. Jason is starting to be funny too. You, Jason and Bryn are a beautiful family! On the last episode, Max was telling you he had a crush on Kristen. But, I think he secretly has a crush on your assistant, Julie. I wouldn't blame him, she is a peach and is beautiful inside and out. I look forward to more episodes. And, don't worry about doing everything just perfect. No mother I know has yet! Trying to put the baby doll in the car seat brought back funny memories. I read on another blog that they didn't blame you if you didn't like the name Hoppy. I think whatever Jason's last name was, I would accept with honor. He is truly a gentleman and his family is super! Treat him right. There are not many men out there as good as Jason.

Love you Bethenny, you're my FAVORITE housewife. I just can't get over that lime green printed ELEPHANT pillow. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do tell where you received it and how I can get my hands on it too. I'm 2 months pregnant and obviously don't know what I'm having but I will work that pillow into my baby's room somehow. I MUST HAVE THAT PILLOW! Obessed pregnant pillow fan, Patty...lol

LOVED last night's show. Love all the shows so far. I am so glad you have your own show and it's not all drama like all the housewives. Seriously I have cried at the wedding and last night's show with you in labor. But most of the time you are cracking me up!! Congratulations on your bundle of joy and your show. Can't wait to see next week's show!

Bethenny,

You are so funny because you are real...remain just the way you are and I wish you Jason and Bryn all the success and happiness you guys deserve. Bethenny you are so pure..so real and I think you might have another career you can add on..comedian because you are naturally hilarious...absolutely hilarious. Jason you are a great partner for Bethenny because you mellow it all out..you will be a great husband and dad..and handsome to boot! And little Bryn..looks like a little Bethenny already...god bless you all. Bethenny I hope this show doesn't get too crazy for your life so you will stop the show...if it does I think we fans will understand but in the meantime..you are killing the housewives...I was a housewives fan..now I'm a BGM fan!!! Love the show and I hope we are able to continue to watch your family grow..see with the "drugs" you were at a party..so maybe another baby next year??? Ahh...Bryn will need a brother or sister. God bless you and your family and please if you can...continue to bring us laughter...you brighten my day everytime I watch your show..continued success!!

Dear Bethenney, you made a smart move by getting the baby nurse. When I had son 1 after C section, I can home to my team of family and friends.That included my Mom, my Aunt that I adored(now deceased), two sisters, sister-in-laws, and dear girl friends.My best friend of 35 yrs is a nurse.She taught me a lot. Good luck learning the skills it takes to care for an infant.

What a sweet family you now have. My husband and I watch your show and love it, he just said "I cant believe I'm watching someones honeymoon". You are a breath of fresh air for the reality tv. I loved how you didnt want to make your daughter move when you got home from the hospital, it just shows how real this all is because I felt the same way with my first baby. Im a real estate agent and the struggles come and go, your work ethic is much like mine, non stop. Im so glad to see you have made it because you deserve all of it. Keep up the good work and, and enjoy your new family!

Dear Bethenny,

OK this is it! I love your show so much that I actually signed up to post a comment on your blog. Our family and friends have been following from the Housewives of NYC to finally an awesome show "Bethanny Getting Married" that we absolutely adore.

You are amazing person and have seen and been through the worst at a very young age in life. I totally believe that God has been watching over you and blessed with all that you wanted which was unconditional love, personal finacial security and family.

You are a fighter and really strong and have already taught Brynn what it is to be a survivor in life.

We're a very close-knit family but it has brought us closer watching your show. You truly are an honest person and we've laughed and cried together watching the show.

You have the survival instincts in life and when you feel you're being thrown under the bus (friends from NYC) you decided to cut them out of your life. Good for you!

You are surrounded by people who love and care for you now: Jason who is such a supportive and understanding husband. He truly is your soul mate. We all have one. Julie works tirelessly and quitely looking for no recognition for you but you do give it in more ways than one.

Shawn R grew on us-- His last blog made us weep and you can see the love he has for you guys. He has learnt so much being around and so have we.

Thank you being the most honest, loving, sometimes eccentric person we've ever met and love and adore so much.

We can't wait till the next episode and you know you're an amazing mom and Jason is an amazing husband and father. Enjoy the rest of your lives together and the fact that I've actually blogged for the first time in my life means that you mean a lot to so many of us watching this show.

WATCH OUT - Lucy and Dezi meet Bethenny and Jason, along with Ethel and Fred (Julie & Max) of the 21st century!!!!You've made me laugh out loud (when I'm by myself), peed my pants, choked to death when I'm sipping a drink and cried many times. THANK You for the comic relief I need so bad. Your beautiful daughter Bryn is going to have a wonderful life with parents like you and Jason. Very vocal about your love for one another is what will make your little girl feel confident and secure and Jason showing your daughter how much you love her mother is the best present you will ever give her, so keep it up!! This is the best time of your life and thank you so much for sharing it with your fans. We all love you and your sweet family!! BRAVO, this is your best housewife yet.
