Max talks about rifling around in Bethenny Frankel's underwear drawer.

on Jun 24, 20100

 

It was sad to see Bethenny get so upset when she was shopping with her friend, Jake. Bethenny's good at putting on the tough guy persona while juggling so many different things. She doesn't want to come off like she can't handle the buffet she puts on her plate. Let's not forget though, she's smack dab in the middle of her pregnancy, and that alone will throw things out of whack. Despite all her troubles, she can battle adversity with the best of 'em.

Packing for women is not exactly in my skill set (obviously). But like most of the tasks I do for Bethenny, it's my first time doing it and it needs to be done, so I need to learn on the fly and fast. She was yelling to me to pull a jumpsuit out her closet and I have absolutely no idea what a jumpsuit looks like. Picking panties out of drawers? My mind wasn't on picking what g-string would match her jumpsuit, my mind was on Jason and the shotgun he'd have to my head if he knew I was in his fiance's panty drawer!

It's clear that Bethenny hasn't warmed up to the fist pound. I've tried to give her a thorough rundown of the motivations, intentions, and feelings behind why guys fist pound. But to her, I'm just a douche.

And as if it wasn't bad enough that Shawn felt Bethenny had his balls in a jar, Cookie was about three inches away from having them in her mouth.

The stresses of the wedding were beginning to wear Bethenny down, so the trip to Atlantic City was well timed. She was just about at her tipping point, so being around Jason, her friends, and the people that make her happy lifted her spirits, I'm sure.

The hourglass is getting emptier by the day, and there is still so much to be done!

Max, You in the panty reminded me of a cruise. I had rushed off to breakfast & left a stack of sexy underwear on the bed. When we returned the MALE cabin attendant had cleaned our cabin and hung all my brightly colored sexy panties & bras on hangers and put them in the closet. Every time we ran into him on the ship he would look down instead of into my eyes. My husband thought it was funny but clearly the attendant was uncomfortable.

I love you Jason, that Bethenney is a wise woman in choosing you! You fit right in with all of them, so looking forward to the rest of the season. Keep up the good work! The show is such a joy to watch!!!

Max, you are so sweet! Not doubt, Bethenny made the right choice picking you. Good to see you so peacefully juggling in B's world. On the other hand, B. is completely out of control and bcs I like her, I am glad Jason is a cool guy. best of luck for you all!

You are the best! B couldn’t have picked a better assistant. Your so genuine I love it. You fit in with Jason so well, because as we all know he is such a down to earth guy, and really cares. I agree that working for B is going to give you a lot of info about what and what not to do when you are scouting for your own significant other. Do you get along with the other assistant she seems very uptight? Hope you are happy with your new job, we need you on the show by all means. Love You Lyssa

Max, Do you single pound or double it? Just remind Bethenny when she starts in about fist pounding that the woman's equivalent to fist pounding is air kissing, in which Bethenny indulges (the single air kiss, not the double). LOL She should ease up on you guys :)

I love Max ,he's adorable!I think he was nervous going thru your underwear drawer!It was too funny!I think he likes being your assistant,and it's great that Jason and him get along! Are you going to keep him on after the baby?

Fan of the show and loving the cookie scenes when he attacks all the other guys but you and Jason (maybe Cookie is threatened by tall men with the exception of Jason).

You need to convince Bethenny to get another dog too! A Great Pyrenees or Golden Retriever. Then you can style the dogs hair just like yours or give it a faux hawk or cone head do like yours! How cute would that be ... matchy matchy.

I bet you have warmed to the gay community hitting on you because working with Bethenny it is bound to keep happening!! ;)

Talk about a match made in heaven!!! Bethenny's got a little bro!!! (OK... that's a stretch) but you reminded me of my little brothers and how they'd act around us gals underwear & "things!"

I once had my little brother (he was stoned at the time) watch for 15 MINUTES while I put my makeup on... he was especially intrigued with the eyelash curler!!!

Oh my... you're funny!!! Love watchin & readin you!!!

Max what does a 24 yr old single guy know about being smack dab in the middle of pregnancy? Did you even write your blog? I can't get into this show with your boss, for some unexplained reason, it seems very contrived and makes me feel like I need to charge a fee from Bravo for taking up my time. I got through 2 1/2 episodes before I realized why I kept going to find other things to do at 10 p.m. In another venue, you are terrific I am sure, but this gig makes you seem a bit desperate for a job. So desperate you will rummage through your boss' underwear. Once one of my boss' asked me to erase a blackboard for them, I refused. I felt as if it was humiliating for me to do that. There is something so personal about someone cleaning up after themselves, and to pick out underwear for a trip may seem like a cute thing for a guy to do, but in the real world of women like me watching it, it seems a bit extreme and makes you wonder if your time couldn't be spent doing something more relevant. I am afraid if I continue watching this show, I might see you heading for the bathroom with all those crotch washers Jason bought at Costco, with her telling you how many to bring. Now that would be clearly disgusting.

Dear Maxx, The underwear scene was not that funny. What pregnant lady wears a G-string? Obviously staged....staged...staged.!! What would be funnier is seeing Jason and Bethenny making whoopie in the kitchen, and you walking in on that. I think you should come up with some really off the wall senarious and pitch them to Bethenney and her agent. You would be so funny taking her to Lamaze classes. Jason is just plain boring....boring....boring....

@e.stephens....why such a hater? If you had even a clue you would have seen that her "female" assistant had already left for the day. You would also have known that Bethenny was instructed to rest as much as possible and you would have figured out on your own that I'm sure Jason would have been happy to help her pack if he weren't taking care of things in regards to their wedding as well.

Don't like what you see...then don't watch the show!

I thought your blog was very funny. The look on your face while picking out her underwear and your explantation of that look is so funny.

If she thought you were a douche she wouldn't have hired you! And she would have told you to your face. So, I think it's all good. Please keep writing your blogs, you are so funny and cute to boot!

Priceless.

I'm glad you're on the show. I loved your chat with Bethenny about cougars and how gay men love you but you're not "gayable."

Hey Max, you are one cool dude!

I couldn't imagine anyone asking a male employee / assistant / friend to pull out panties & bra to pack, but I'm giving B the benefit of doubt that she did it to yank your chain. You handled that sticky situation beautifully.

As to your description of poor Shawn's almost becoming a eunich that was priceless, and I'm still roaring over it. By the way, how is Cookie treating you?

Loved your blog on that WP balls on a jar and that cookie is 3 inches away from her mouth. In fact she almost had them already LOL when he came to see B to tell her the good news that he got the Four Seasons.

Being asked to rifal through her underwear draw was way out of line.She has a woman working for her,and she was sitting on the bed,not calling you for an emergency.(I am sure Jason would not have liked that move)Your not explaining the hair and Shawn correctly wasn,t cause for her to embarress you.By the time Bethaney has this baby,you might turn gay or at least hate all woman.
