- Bethenny Ever After: Season 2
The liquor store appearance went so much better than anticipated. We were expecting 40 people and there were close to 400. Unlike the JCC event where I was wandering around like a horny, 14-year-old high school freshman, I was positioned next to Bethenny, making sure the flow of fans getting autographs ran smoothly.
Bethenny issued me a challenge and offered bonus pay if I could score three separate numbers that night. This confused me. At this appearance she encouraged me to chase girls while at last week’s event she disapproved. I guess it depends on the situation, where we are, and what's going on. Again, these are things I was in the process of learning. In my 'guy mind' there is never an inappropriate time to chase girls! But when you join Team Skinnygirl Margarita there is little to no girl-chasing time, and when there is, you need to be efficient. I wasn’t sure if Bethenny was testing me to see if I had any game or to see if I had the balls to put my girl-chasing objectives before my job once again! There were, after all, plenty of great looking girls at this event ... cougars, MILFS, college girls, you name it, and I would have loved to approach some of them! But in the back of my mind, I already screwed up in a similar situation and did not want to be a repeat offender.
Even though Bethenny gave me the green light to swing away that evening, I could see her chomping my face off for not being focused and doing what I was there to do. She ragged on me for passing up the easy opportunity to get a number, but I wanted to show her I was there to work for her, not do my own thing like last time.
Bethenny, the slick pickup artist she is, decided to show me exactly how I should have went about scoring numbers. For some reason, however, there was a huge obstacle she was forgetting. The obstacle: BETHENNY FRANKEL. My impression of Bethenny was the result of what I thought to be the most likely outcome of doing something I got in trouble for last week. I thought my Bethenny rendition was pretty spot-on, and the reassurance from Julie and Jason made me feel even better about that.
Bethenny dishes out the jokes a lot, and despite her middle finger gesture, it was nice to see that she could take it, too.
You were right on target!!!! Maintain the professionalism, but also know when to loosen up, because you have one of the best jobs in Tribeca....
Max, dear Max... you are so wise for so young!!! BUT... you are thrown into the deep end of the OCEAN... not just the pool!
You've got a PREGNANT, getting married, type A personality bag of hormones for this assistant job and I for one think you are doing magnificently!!!
Stay trustworthy and you're in!!!
You were in the right not to work the room on your own while you were with Bethenny. While you are with her you are essentially on the job so you should always be as professional as possible, even with the "nut job" that is your employer. lol We love all of you and you're adorable Max!!
This show is so funny and entertaining. It reminds me of Will and Grace funny. I am in hysterics from beginning till end of the program. You are such a great sidekick to Bethanny. I look forward to each program unlike any reality show I've seen. Must say I find the Housewives of Atlanta a close equal. Hope that is viewed as a great compliment. NY and Atlanta Housewives programs among my favorite programs. My other favorites include Modern Family, House, Antiques Roadshow, Dancing With The Stars, American Idol, KOCE and KCET special broadcasts.
OMG the impression you did of Bethenny at the liquor store was so funny and so TRUE! I laughed so hard watching that.
you're such a handsome well mannered person! Thanks your parents for me. you're damn cute too, damn shame your straight!
max you are mad hot you should already be snagged in NYC come to DC if there is slim pickings there (;
Fabulous rendetion of Bethenny! But thats why we, (viewers) love her so much because shes fabulously crazy.
Your Bethenny impression was hilarious--I was laughing right along with you all! I was glad to see Bethenny enjoying it as well.
Hi Max! You made me laugh so hard last night, impersonating your boss was just the best! I'm sure you don't need any help when it comes to scoring anything! You have a great personality and I totally enjoy watching you with Bethenny!
Max -- you absolutely did the right thing! Better to err on the side of being professional. If some lady wants to give you her phone number, she'll find a way to get it to you. And your impression of B was spot on! Very funny .. and also very lucky for you B does have a sense of humor and can take it as well as she dishes it out.
Max! You're a cutie and funny. What a lucky guy to be on this fun show! I laugh, I shed a tear sometimes. Have a great time and looking forward to more seasons!
Seriously? Do you really have to use the word "cougar"?
It is such a demeaning word toward women. I see red whenever I hear or read the word in print.
Show a little maturity and stop referring to women in such a disrespectful way.
Besides, not all older women are interested in pre-pubescent-minded boys, such as you. Personally, I would not date a boy of your age. It is the experience of life and living that turns a boy into a man. You've got a few years to go.
The liquor store scene is one of the funniest things I have EVER seen in real life or television! Your impersonation was spot on and I was thrilled to see Bethenny laughing at it!! This show is FABULOUS and I think Bethenny is one of the most real, down to earth, grounded people on TV. Which is saying a lot with the upbringing she had!! Please tell her I hope her life only continues to get better everyday, she deserves it!!
That was a great show Max. You contributed your share, too.
Next time Beth tosses down the gauntlet, consider telling her,
"Hey, if any of those girls want MY number, I'm all for it. For now? I'm having fun just watching you work."
Then cough, lolol
Your impersonation of BEthenny was HILARIOUS! Keep 'em coming! Great watching you...a great addition to the "team".
You have to admit it's not boring working for Bethanny! You're a great addition to the show, Max. Bethanny can definately dish it out but I was thrilled to see she could take it too. Love the show.
Okay so I know this probably so creepy but I think the show should have like a date day for Max because he is good looking but doesn't seem like an ass, so I think he is my type and I am everyones type haha. Okay well probably wouldnt happen but i think is a great idea and should be given a thought because you will attract a new audience that likes Max.
I always enjoy reading your blogs Max! You are one easy- going, roll-with-the-punches, humorous guy...Love the show!
I totally agree with you: you already got bagged for the last time, so maybe it was a test. Bethenny is a Scorpio after all ;) (I say that with LOVE. I'm married to a Scorp!)
They do not trust easily and are always "testing". It's just the nature of Scorps.
There is plenty of time when you're not working to skirt chase.
Love your imitation, that was downright awesome.
P.S.I'm glad you and Bethenny have photos on your blogs. Now, Shawn and Julie need to follow through and post theirs, too. It just looks kind of strange without their photos over their blogs.
You were right. In business situations, remain professional, despite the boss egging you to do differently. IN the end, they respect you more. Like Jason, you're perfect for Bethenny.
Big fan of the show, you are a great addition. My favorite on the show is Cookie. She took to you right away. Stay focused, you'll go far in life.
You are clearly an asset to Bethenny. You are almost too cute for words! I think I'm just a little bit in love with you, but shhhh! don't tell my husband...
Seems you've really got it together. I'm with the rest.....keep professional whenever you are accompanying Bethenny (chase girls on your own time). Let's face it, I'm sure Bethenny wants to be the center of attention, and keeping her so can only enhance your job performance. Also, it looks like you'll get along great with Jason.....another Kudo to your corner. Getting him to trust you will make him feel good that someone is watching out for his wife....and no competition. Love ya, GO MAX!!
TRUELY ENJOY THE RIDE MAX! yu did good she was testing you Max! you did good, keep your nose to the grindstone and hang on for your life its going to be a wild ride Max! but you will have much FUN too along the way. stay 'cool' stay 'focused' .....
Okay so you're tired of the hair comments. We want the old picture. I think the way you interact with Bethenny is hysterically funny. Don't listen to crap about your great job. We don't know what you have to do all day. Poor Shawn. And I adore Bethenny but that poor guy.
Hey, Max, email me, I have ideas for future books for Bethenny. I have no desire to be in the public eye but MANY fabulous ideas as I have three boys: 18, 16, 14 in the Midwest and many great 'activities, philosophies, milestone ideas etc. Would love to visit by email. I think Bethenney is great and will continue to great things.
Hey max! your Bethenny act was so funny! You had her pegged. She seems a hard ass but your lucky to b workin for her! Keep up the good work!
You are a cute guy on the show, and I agree with you that despite Bethenny's jokes and taunts, her "truth or dare" challenge to you to green-light girl pick-ups while on the job,(despite her reverse message the other week) you were correct in keeping business and pleasure separate. SMART business move. My money is on the fact that should you go ahead and hit on a girl, it will come back and slap you in the face someday. Working for Bethenny might be a great opportunity due to her current success, however, I am sure it comes with a price....Bethenny is UNPREDICTABLE, so don't let your guard down and never go after the girls while on the job. You will eventually be crucified by your boss should you do so, even if she gives you a green light.
I can't get enough of you! Super adorable, hilarious and smart! Love your blogs -- they are always well written.
Thank you for finding my girl Bethenny. I count down the days until I can watch you both on Thursday nights. You guys are so entertaining to watch. Please do not ever leave the show!!!!
Love, love, love you!
Max! you are a cutie i loved your impression of Beth and I loved that "YOUR GENERATION" question hahahahaha I died really I almost peed myself it was so funny. Bless your heart you are doing a good job for her and I'm sure you will learn fast.
