When Bethenny Ever After premieres tonight, expect a short bald man, bad dance moves, and a lack of soup. Put those eyebrows down and allow Bethenny to explain.
"It's kind of like Seinfeld where there are just these different characters that appear and these ridiculous situations just happen to appear," B tells TVGuide.com about round two of her life as a mom and wifey. "It's not all that glamorous... I'm not running around at Fashion Week. I'm hanging with my family. That's all we really do, it's just my normal life, but somehow it's interesting."
Like many New Yorkers, this I-can't-feel-my-toes frigid winter left Bethenny pondering a move to the West Coast in search of higher temperatures. "I'd like a backyard," the Skinnygirl mogul says. "I'd like a garage and not a closet that we call the garage in my apartment. I'd like every night after dinner to go take a 20-minute walk instead of have my nose hairs frozen."
One can only dream of such simple luxury, but alas, B keeps the business gears moving. "We're not 26 and I'm just going to decide to move there unless it's right for work," she continues.
Yes, Bethenny's back in her multitasking glory when Bethenny Ever After premieres tonight at 10/9c.

I'm excited for all of you Bethenny! You've made such a good decision about keeping Jill out of your life. TOXIC!
Fourteen minutes into the season premier Bethanny is dissing her in laws home town? Yes, Bethanny, we here in Hazleton do wear and own bras.....
Today was my first time watching your show and I loved it. You and your husband "family" are so beautiful. I now live in Hazleton, PA going on two yrs now and yes it is blah for me coming from NJ. I just want to say you have such a beautiful spirit and personality, I just love you as if I met you before your husband loves you to death and it shows and is very rare in this day and age and I pray that you and him continue to grow in love, health and family. You have a fan for life, the show is the bomb, and not a show for the cameras. This show made my teary eye,smiled, and giggle to myself. Fight thru it but don't forget to breathe. God Bless....
Best first episode ever! It's soooo much more enjoyable to watch a reality show with no hating, screaming, yelling, etc. You and Jason and Bryn and, of course, Cookie ROCK!!! :) Can't wait to see what's next!
bethenny im a huge fan ever since i saw you on the housewives, i said shes got it all and now you really do ur daughter is so cute your truley blessed im a single mom i live in fl and anytime yall want to visit i will be happy to show you the fl sun bryn will love mickey mouse. till next week take care xxoo tiff
Bethenny, omg i just watched your show and i never write any comments but are u kidding, u married jason because of who he was as a man and would not be this man if it were not for those wonderful parents. Yes it is a package deal i have been there myself and let me tell u there is no amount of success or money equal to the love of those parents,grandparents of your beautiful baby bryn! I wanted a baby girl and had her, i gave up a relationship and family (his) for my own selfish reasons. My daughter is grown now and i would go back in a NYS if i could, but we only get one dress rehersal. I wish i had that second child and so will u. Dont leave nyc for cal. for all the wrong reasons u will regret it someday, those grandparents will not be around forever and u dont understand now but someday when its to late u will get it! Bryn needs her family around her she may be a baby now but it does not last long. U are so sad about your childhood but have the world now and i dont think u are aware of it. U cant go back, thank god for Jason and remember what it was like before him and that beautiful baby. Dont get greedy now how much is enough when it comes to success! It can also destroy familys. Your a beauful woman with alot to offer and teach others about getting their lives together from nothing but dont be caught empty handed in the end! A friend!
just watched your first episode for this season...........loved it, loved it so much.The interaction with your in-laws over the week-end visit was good, they are such lovely people, so sincere and want to have a "presence" in your babys' life on a more regular basis, you were candid and honest with them....they can come to New York and visit, its easier for them travel to you guys, put them up in a nice hotel, have fun with them and just let them know that you will return your visits to them in Pa perhaps on a monthly basis........you need your privacy as a new family.....and when you said in your therapy session that you have no "roots" why can't you consider that you now have your "family roots" with your husband and child, make new memories for yourself and let go of what cannot be reclaimed from the past.............luv u guys
I love Bethenny in all of the shows she's on! She is better than Seinfeld - pLs! She cracks me up and makes me cry too. Stay in Ny girl - We love you! Love from the Hudson Valley : )
just wrote a long long comment which did not go through...........so I will shorten this one for sure........love the first episode..........just one comment to Betthany with regard to her sharing with the therapist that she has no "roots"......aren't Jason and your little girl your "ROOTS" now.....the family you did not ever have you are building one this very moment in time......how wonderful......stay in the present, its all we have, give it "best" and have fun with your family..........love your show so much........and you and your husband and baby...........
Bethenny...this episode showed that you really don't, or don't want to be a part of a family. I love you & your 'character' so to speak, on the Housewives & then on getting married. I think your life is interesting, etc.. But they way you talked about Jason's hometown & family was really not cool at all. Not so much the area, but just how you did not want to be a part of the family. When his mom mentioned Halloween & Thanksgiving, you were not even moved. This is what families do! they have Thanksgiving together. For you to want this insular nuclear family does not seem very 'familial'. It's not just YOU anymore. What grandparents wouldn't want to see their grandkids' first halloween & have thanksgiving as a family. I think you definitely should NOT stop going to therapy, and seriously, try tho t hink of more than just yourself ..you have a family..ACT like it. I am abt 3 or 4 years younger than you & can't even imagine if I was still in L.A. without my family when I had my son(who is 4 now). I moved bck to Philly.My family was such a great support( I know you have nannies and such, but it's still not family) ..Think about it....really.!.Continued Success & Jason is EXCELLENT for dealing with all of this, where his parents are concerned. Good luck & can't wait to see the show next week(free of judgement;-)
Hey Mrs. Hop B, Yes, some will be offened by the comments and we all are human. We say things we regret. I know most of the time when I open my mouth whether it is good, bad, or wrong it is how I feel and regret nothing you do just own everything you say. I am your #1 Fan, but there is one thing I want to say to you and I feel like your life mirrors mine so much. I lost my mom when she was 47yrs old and she wasn't perfect actually far, far from it, but she was mine. All I could do when she left is wonder why I couldn't forgive her in this life. I came to realize that no one is perfect and no one gets a mommy handbook, so she could only be who she was and I loved her. Not being a good mother, but for being the woman who for whatever reason decided to give me a chance at life. And I mean only giving birth to me. Without her I would not be here and have 5 yes five beautiful children who all and I'm not sugar coating this... are wonderful, respectful, honest, and loving so very loving human beings. As for the in-laws love them, as well. Bryn may need them more than you know. My youngest didn't only lose my mom, 2 years later he lost his paternal grandmother & 1 year almost to the day he lost her husband his granddad. They were very similar to Jason parents just loving their grandchild so much you would think their hearts would burst. I had to learn to let people in and when I did there was only more love within our family and with that truly comes peace. LOVE YOUR SHOW Mrs. Hop B YOUR #1 FAN
Bethenny, When coal was King Hazleton was the city we traveled to for shopping, to have a night out and more. What your seeing is the aftermath in American Cities. My family lived 40 Minutes away and still taveled there. Your husband has values you most likely won't get in anyone but a coal region man !
Just wanted to say that I understand where you are coming from in regard to spending time with your wonderful new extended family. When a person grows up the way you did, with not much family around or close relationships, you have to take it all in small doses. Jason and his parents are great, loving people and just need to be patient. Remember, baby steps......
I grew up with Jason and know of his wonderful family. You are a lucky woman. Hazleton may not look like much but those of us who live here still have pride. Some of us visit NYC and Philadelphia on a regular basis. We too shop at Bergdorf's and have eaten at Le Cirque and even stay at the Plaza. We choose to live here. We choose to stay close to our roots and our families. We have values. There is a pride which exists here of which you have no idea. Your comments throughout the episode were quite hurtful. We're not all a bunch of hicks with no teeth. You need to drop the facade and let people in. You have a good man and a fabulous life. Stop hating yourself so much.
