Max talks about being tossed into the middle of MILF-land, his slow dance with Bethenny, and more.

on Jun 17, 20100

 

It’s the end of my first week with Bethenny and my first time accompanying her at an appearance. I swear to God I think my hair got bigger since last week. It looks like I took a fork and stuck it into an electrical outlet. I was excited to see Bethenny in action at the JCC event because I knew one of her greatest strengths was her aptitude to engage an audience through wit, truth, and the ability to relate. This is where I felt I’d be able to learn the most from her.

I was, however, a bit distracted to say the least. I stepped into the house, took one look around, and all I could think was, "Old Mc Donald had a farm, e-i, e-i MILF. With a MILF, MILF here and a MILF, MILF there, here a MILF, there a MILF, everywhere a MILF, MILF."

I figured Bethenny would mingle with the guests, make small talk, snap photos, and give a speech. I didn’t think I needed to be by her side the entire time. I was very wrong. One person after another approached her, and although Bethenny always puts on a happy face, you could see how after a while that can get annoying.

I was off hunting cougars with my bow and arrow instead of making sure Bethenny was taken care of. It was the absolute wrong thing to do, but hey, next time you’re a 24-year-old guy and get tossed into a room chock full 'o MILF, let me know how you respond. I think Bethenny is a great wing-woman. Giving me a nice shout out at the beginning of her speech definitely offset the necessity to run my head under the sink the other night.

Max, you're an adorable addition to the show. Whatever you learn from Bethenny, file it into your head. Every future boss in life will want exactly what Beth wants.

One thing about Bethenny, I feel she tells the truth, so if she didn't like you, she'd saute your baseballs and give them to Cookie.

What's with the diamond replacing your pic? You are too cute to not want to show your face.... :)

Btw, MILF??? Really??!! I have to second the...EW!!!

Dude! I hope you can step back from all of it a bit to enjoy being YOU right now. 20-something, good lookng, and a bit famous in NYC? Dude, chicks -- even the age-appropriate ones -- must be throwing their panties at you everytime walk down the street. Jewish mothers must be parachuting their single daughters (SWAT style) into your apartment on a daily bases. And considering Bethanny's demographic, I hope you find some humor in the complements you'll get from "the other team" as well. Enjoy!

I laughed my bottom off at the 'your generation' comment. I'm first run Generation X (yeah, 40+1), and still have not gotten used to being thought of as old(er)!

I was waiting for you to demonstrate grinding for us....

Hi Max

For what it's worth, I like you and Bethenny together. Sure, you've got stuff to learn - but if there ever was a boss who can appreciate that, you've got her. You seem the type to learn quick, and IMHO you come across as a team Jethenny player. Can't wait to see what comes next!

So far.....you've get to hit the goals and acheivments you boasted during your interview. "I'm the kind of person who likes to anticipate your needs before you know you need them." Not word for word...but you get the meaning. Yeah...cute, charming but is there anything under that shell? Hello????? Wake up Bud...or you will be on the outside looking in. Many in line to take your place.

Your mother should be very proud. You are adorable, and Bethenny knew a good thing when she saw it. Can't wait to see more of you!

Oh Max, you are just too cute. "do you grind?" had me lmao. I still go to clubs now and then at the ripe old age of 36 and while people my age may still grind, I can't imagine anyone doing it at a wedding, a hip hop club yes, wedding no. My dd 15 also enjoys watching you as well, we both can't wait to see what you'll do next. And as an attractive mother I being refered to as a beautiful woman rather than a MILF.

I think Bethenny will be a good Mom, just from the scolding she gave you ! I am glad you are not afraid of Bethenny and I am glad you and Jason hit it off considering the reservations Jason had about a straight male as B's assistant. My 16 year old is in love with Bethenny - and would love to have your job.

Max you are def a cutie but that will only take you so far. Bethanny is not someone you can throw that charm on to hide your poor job peformance. This is a dream job and there are a million people who could take your place. So snap out or it dude and start by keeping 2 steps ahead of ms B or we will see you on th view explaining whys you got canned. Your appearance is important but her wedding and all the million things she got going on are far more important. I for one could do that job hands down better so snap out of max a million and get focused on BETHANNY not the MILFS

Hi Max,

I saw the episode when Bethenny interviewed you. Imagine my shock when I learned that you went to and played football for SU. I live in Syracuse and have season tickets for football, also huge basketball fan. Good Luck on the time with Bethenny.

"Does your generation" is the worst thing to say to a woman unless she is a grandmother! Haha..absolutely hilarious! I'm 30 yrs young and date men your age so I can definitely relates but sheesh, you made her feel so ooooooold. Haha, I guess she shouldn't be surprised since she did mention to Jason that no "24 yr old would want to hit this." The generation gap...isn't in her pants.

Love the blog, you were destined to be on this show and to showcase your wit and humor right along with Bethenny and Jason and Cookie too! I think every generation grinds because it is all people really know how to do! Seriously! That or Turtle Time.

I know that there is going to be more shows after this first initial one, if you have the chance to keep it going, do it! You have the opportunity of a lifetime and I see big things coming your way and if you get offered a role in a movie, take it. It will be your opening to expand yourself and make a brand for yourself. Just don't leave bethenny behind in the long run. Keep the blogs coming.. you write very well and are friggin hilarious, a perfect match to the crew!! Welcome! America loves you.

Max,

You are doing great! You're funny and sharp. I imagine working for B can be stressful, you will make a misstep or two. But hey, you're young, you're allowed a few! It's how you handle it that counts!

See you next week!

Max, You can learn a lot from Bethenny. I like the way you took her chewing you out about not having the car there when she was ready to leave. Your new at this, keep calm and you will go far.

Love the lingo (slaying cougars), the hair, the ability to take criticism, and the voice (very sexy). If you have any anxiety about being in the public eye - don't. You the man.

MILF stands for Mother I'd Like to F**k. It's a term I don't care for and shows disrepect towards women - in my humble opinion. I think "hot chick" would have gotten the point across without being so crass and so crude. Otherwise, I think you're a success on the show. Mind your manners....and you'll be okay!

Hey Max,

You are in for a fun ride, so enjoy and remember to take care of Bethenny. She has been through a lot in the past year. She needs people around her that really care and are honest and not qossip spreaders. If you remember that you will be with her for a long time. She is a smart lady and can teach you a lot about business. She is funny and witty. I love to watch her on the show. I think it is hard when you have fame and you just want people to remember you are human, You have you quirks and life problems just like the rest of us. Hey, at least you get to come to work and see one hot lady everyday! Got to be a plus! You are not so shabby yourself :). Good luck on the show!
