Shawn recalls the day Bethenny gave birth to baby Bryn, and applauds Jason, Max and Julie for thier help and support!

on Jul 22, 20100

 

It was around noon in early May and while prepping for a client's wedding I took a break to check out the news, gossip and such on the Web and what I saw made my heart drop. Breaking News: Reports Bethenny Frankel in Labor! I was like what the hell! She's not due for another five weeks! Immediately I was concerned for Bethenny and the baby's health. With today's technology, delivering five weeks early shouldn't be a concern, but you never know. Unlike others (such as the press and other "celebrities") I chose to do what others didn't, give them their space and peace so they could experience the birth of their child together out of the limelight. After all it really wasn't anyone's business but their own.

When news broke again that they had a healthy child (amid varied reports of the babies sex) out of respect for Bethenny and Jason's privacy I opted to email Julie to let her know that I was thinking of them, wishing them a lifetime of happiness. A few moments later I received an email from Mommy herself stating that they were beyond happy and one day she would love for me meet baby Bryn. A tear came to my eye. I am not sure why, but it did.

I think it was tear of happiness because Bethenny's dreams all came true. She had the man she loved dearly, the wedding she always dreamed of, and a baby to complete the family she always wanted. Who couldn't shed a tear of happiness for that?

Shawn, you're a lovely, sweet man. As far as Cookie: She is protecting her home and family. Please tell Bethenny to tell Cookie "Shawn is coming" in a very happy way. This show's cookie Bethenny is happy about it. I do this for everyone entering my house. I have a Mastiff, Newfoundland and St. Bernard. I always tell people to call before they reach my driveway to remind my dogs that I am happy happy!

Bring a dog toy and fill it with peanut butter. Dogs love that...every time you go there. It shows Cookie that something good is coming her way when you arrive.

Don't put your hand on her head. Let her smell you and you can make small movements toward her ear to scratch.

Please tell Bethenny and everyone else all of this.

A dog lover~

Dear Shawn, I don't want you show to be the "wedding planner". I want to see you do all events. Gay weddings, baby showers, sweet 16, divorce parties, anything like that would be great. Weddings are just too limited. NYC has lots of great folks with diverse interests. Hoping to see more of you soon. ...D

Love IT

You're awesome! You did an absolutely AMAZING job on the wedding! If I could, I would definitely hire you! I hope they give you your own show!

Shawn there is truly something really special about you. My dagughter and I both loved you on Bethanny's show. You made us LOL many times and we would love to see you on your own show. I know why Bethanny quickly e-mailed you.... it's because she knows your a true, loyal, friend. You passed the test.... she was grateful you delivered and put up with her.....and Cookie. She didn't even email her mom when she was in labor. Her quick e-mail to you says a lot.

I said from day one of seeing you on Bethenny's show that you needed to get your OWN show.

I laughed so freaking hard when watching the episode when Bethenny said she would rip your dick off and you said "I know you will....and probably serve it as an hors d'oeuvre or something". OMG I thought I would die laughing.

And to do what you did in 4 weeks? Nothing short of absolutely amazing! You rock!

Shawn, to be as sweet as you are right now after enduring the hormones of an expectant mother only shows what a classy guy you really are......when are you getting your own show?????I would watch!

It has been so inspiring to see the grace and sincerity grow and develop as you were tested during each episode. What a testiment to your own character and professionalism to become close to a client who did not have confidence in you at the beginning. It is a pleasure to watch the love and respect for everyone in this group. You were entertaining and showed much class in your interactions with Bethanny- Bravo to you Shawn. Hope you are rewarded. Thank you for letting us get to know you- it must have been a difficult decision to do the show. We're so glad you did !!! Good Luck and hope to see more of you.

Shawn, you rock!!!! You look so familar...did you do a sitcom or a cameo on some show? I could swear I've seen you before. If Bravo doesn't give you your own show, they're idiots! You made the show!!!

Shawn: You are such a sweetheart and an amazing wedding planner. I don't know how you put up with Bethenny and her "I'll rip your dick off" drama. You deserve so much better. Plan my wedding and I'll treat you fine. Best of luck to you and much success in your career.

Mr Shawn Rabideau:

You are indeed quite a terrific person who goes well beyond what is required as a wedding planner -- but one that goes the extra mile for a client of which are not quickly forgotten once the event is completed.

Shawn, you did not forget your BGM clients as they entered the next phase of their life. You did allow the wedded couple time to be alone and enjoy their honeymoon, however, you must have been curious about their unborn baby. Yet you kept your distance and until after hearing the official announcement of Bryn's birth.

You are indeed such a wonderful person, extending your warm greetings via her personal assistant, Julie. As a tv viewer I find your kindness truly outstanding. Following a surgical procedure can be strenuous and difficult. It is understandable why you did not want to intrude on their special and intimate moment. Lots of congratulations and salutations for a service that makes you extraordinary! Certainly, Bethenny and Jason will remember you always for you are more that a "planner" but a friend to the family.

Dear Shawn, Did you ever notice how people are so like their dogs? Cookie is just like Bethenny..looks cute, but you never know when you are going to get attacked. I always said it is the little yippy dogs that bite the most..like Bethenney. My Rottie is like me..does not bite..but has a presence that lets people know that if you cross the line, she will put you in your place. You seems like the lab type...loyalty first.

Dear Shawn, If Bethenney was smart what she should do is go big and have you plan a huge event featuring her "products". I think she has been signing stuff at the liquor store, but that seems so trashy. If she doesn't want to do this, then contact Jill. SHe is launching her bedpread line. She could use your help.Point is we want to see more of you!

Shawn, You have such a way with words that it makes me smile and tear up at the same time! You are so kind and sincere and REAL!! I wish Bravo would make you stay in the show or get your own, you definitely deserve it!! Maybe you should think of writing your own book - your words are beautiful and from the heart!!! All the best in the future my friend:)

I truely admired the way you took care of & helped Bethenny thru the entire Wedding chaos that could have turned into quite the 'fiasco'! you were level headed & quietly went about doing what you had to do. you were wonderful! I'm sure you will enjoy seeing baby Bryn, good luck & best wishes to you my dear man, you are on your way to fulfill YOUR dreams too! just know that.....

Shawn, As the weeks went on through Bethanny's wedding I thought to myself, Bethanny and Jason were very lucky to have found you. She could have never pulled this off without you.

You truly are a gentleman, funny and most sincere. Good luck to you in the future. I hope to see you on Bravo with your own show. I would definetly tune in. Have a great summer!

Hi Shawn! You are a talented man! Who on earth could pull off that wedding the way that you did? In four weeks, no less! It seems to me, by watching Bethenny since the first season of the Housewives, that once she's gotten to know someone on a "personal" level...like peeing in a bucket. She's their friend forever! So, looks like you may be stuck with her, and how great is that? She has a wit all her own! So do you, so you are able to keep up with her! You did such a great job for that wedding...even though your balls were in danger at times!! Hahaha!

Shawn, Bethenny was so lucky to find you. You are such a great human being. Everyone should be so lucky as to have someone like you in his/her life.

And you throw a mean wedding, too!

I hope Bravo can keep you in our lives somehow.
