When Jason asked me to live together, of course I was a bit nervous. I don't have the most impeccable track record, and I felt like everything in my life was changing. However, I was deeply in love, I knew I had found an incredible man, and I knew that he was the right man to take this incredible step with. I was emotionally overwhelmed at the thought of having such a successful career and finding someone as special as him as well. It was really magical.
I didn't know how Alex would react when I confronted her about the skinnygirl logo. Alex is the most rational of the bunch, so I thought she would understand my feelings. My words were genuine. I had never actually told Alex that I was going in another direction, and I felt awkward and badly about it. I chose to just face it head on and she completely respected that. The bottom line is that it was a business decision based on my partner in skinnygirl cocktails who has helped build international liquor brands such as skyy vodka. In business, let people do what they specialize in. I felt much better once I confronted her.
Ramona's friend Jennifer very badly wanted to insert herself into the show and into other people's business. It caught me off guard to hear a perfect stranger weigh in on something that has nothing to do with her. I started to realize how many people had been included in my personal relationship. It took me by surprise.
Kelly, Jill and LuAnn found each other when they all needed someone to align with or lean on. Kelly had been arrested for domestic violence, LuAnn was going through a divorce and public scandal and Jill had ended a friendship and felt isolated. All of this was happening while creating a reality show, so the timing was perfect for them to forge a friendship.
TEAM BETHENNY...However, you shold make up with Jill. She has always been there for you and i understand that you were busy with life. The fact that her husband had cancer and all you sent was a gift basket are you serious? You are better than that and it was NOT COOL. How would you feel if roles were reversed?
"Jill had ended a friendship" - or you used her last year, when you needed a friend -- and more air time...own that.
First, I love your forthright manner. Second, Jennifer was completely in line, as this is a reality show. After three seasons, I have come to really like Alex. I agree: she is the most rational of the bunch, and I can't imagine that she would ever be angry about your going with another logo. You are great, Bethanny, and I enjoy your honesty, but I really don't like that conspiratorial nature of all the housewives in general. I think you all could use a dose of honesty and forthrightness. For example, Jill was out of line calling Ramona and putting her on speakerphone when Luann was sitting there listening....very catty. Stop the cattiness!
YAY BETHANY HE IS AWESOME AND HE SEEMS MORE COMUNNICATIVE THAN YOUR LAST GUYS. ENJOY IT GIRL YOU DESERVEVIT.
I used to like Bethenny a great deal...I admired her drive, work ethic,personality, etc...I feel as if she has changed alot...She is not so likable to me anymore. I am SO happy about Jason and her professional life but, boy, has it gone to her head. She borders on rude every show. Jill was a true friend and Bethenny was over-the-top nasty to her. Last season hr jealos of Kelly was flagrant nd embarrassing. Kelly is an innocent and seems very kind. I was appalled last season at the wa Bethenny treated her. Bethenny has evolved into a jerk.
Bethenny u r by far one of the realest women on the show. And congrats on ur new life...it seems like u deserve it. Also u look great!!!!
Bethany, i just want to start off by saying that you honesty and frankness is refreshing. You just don't see that kind of straightforwardness that often. And its really irritating when people get angry at it because you are just saying what everyone else is thinking. The friendship between you and Jill all last season was great to watch. I honestly think both of you at right in your arguments. Jill is hurt that you are not in her life anymore but she also has to understand that you have a lot going on in your life.
Bethenny - i dont know who you think you are, but you are totally wrong to dismiss Jill like that. I think it's hilarious that you ended up to the B-list labor day party at Ramona's, and how you're trying to play it off like Ramona's a good person...when clearly, you're not wanted where it really matters. Maybe you should take a good look at your life, and think about how you've pushed away the one person who was there for you before you had anything. And also - it's not funny to be snarky at people who are down. It was funny last season when you called LuAnn a dumb drag queen, but now, you just come of as a completey insecure, middle-aged version of Heidi Montag. And yes, you remind me of Heidi Montag.
Bethenny, I luv ya, but you are wrong. Luann was right to defend herself when you insinuated she was cheap meanwhile she often treats you. Even if you were mad at Jill you could have visited Bobby in the hospital. And you DO talk trash about everyone around you, but when they defend themselves you call them dumb drag queens. IM sorry you had a bad childhood but so have many people (me included) and now you have tremendous success, you need to get over it and calm down.
Love you Bethenny and I hope the best for you. You don't have to apologize for being happy. Jill should be happy for you and instead she's pulling all this bologny. shes jealous and its so obvious. Her chumming up with Kelly is sickening. I'm going to enjoy watching those 3 sourpusses this season. But mostly watching how happy you are with all that is happening in your life. Your my fav Ohio fan.
I am so disappointed in you this season. It looks as though you were the one who truly abandoned your best friend, who was there for you when you were down - not because you were down. Put your feet back on the ground, before you float away.
I used to love watching you and jill have the best conversations on the show. Must admit I am so disappointed that you leave your closest friend on the show behind.
Bethenny don't walk run to Jason's arms. I can tell just by the way you and he look at each other how much love thee is between you. I wouldn't care about what Jill thanks about you. You have a new man and a baby on the way. They should be your first and foremost. You don't need me to tell you that. I am so excited for you. You deserve everything that is coming your way. Take care and I am so glad the New Yorkers are back.
Get them before they get you.
I think that you are the most real person on this RHNY season, those other ladies need to stop acting like high school girls, I watch this with my 14year old and she has told me that her and her middle school friends dont even take alot of what the women on the show take to heart like these women do. She wonders what their are going to be like when they grow up. Bethenny keep keeping it as real as you can/are. Maybe in time the other women will follow your lead in adulthood..... Maria Dominguez
Last Season I was on the Bethenny Train. I loved who you are, your business savy, coming in to your own...etc. I bought your book and think that the Skinny Girl line was a stroke of genious.
However, I have only watched two episodes and I am disapointed. You have changed so much. I am sorry to say that you are coming off as mean, combative, arrogant and un-friendly.
I hope it is just hormonal and that success has not cahnged you this much.
I truly liked the Bethenny of last season. No one like likes that kind of person and I actually worry that you could be your own worst enemy and destroy the success you have created because if I had seen this Bethenny last season I would not have watched the show to see you, bought your book or Skinny Girl items. It would have put bad association. I very rarely comment on things like this but hope that maybe if you see that a fan is a little put off it might help coming from a 3rd party that has no vested interest. Even your Blog seemed cold.
I still wish you success and for now I will continue to watch. I was intrigued that you might be getting a new show but based on what I see now I would not be interested to watch it. I liked the nice Bethenny that was climbing the success ladder. Friend to everyone (except crazy Kelly).
Still hanging on and wishing you the best.
there has been talk that you would not have been all that you are without jill, yet still here you are. jill has always been my favorite and you have always been my husband's favorite and so I think there's something awfully special about the both of you.
Bethany, Do you think that your irritation with Jill could be that she is the mother figure you never had and you are rebelling against all of the attention she lavished on you?
Bethany, you were my favorite person last season. Now evn though I am happy u found love and 2 see you are happy, I am also sad to see your head getting big. I feel you should've told Alex about the logo decision right when u decided to go on a different direction. Also, that excuse about that you didn't want it to look like u, she could've changed that bc that's what graphic desigers do. She did specifically what you asked her. Regarding Jill, you guys had a beautiful friendship going from what I got to see, its SO SAD to hear you say u felt she was your friend bc you didnt have anyone. to me it seems more that you were her friend when u were alone and now that you have it all as you have said, u feel you dont need her and dont have the time. Also, sending Luann flowers in place of u calling her? Having gone thru divorce myself, i feel u lack sensitivity. Whether she gave away her numbr to men or not, she is still in pain. Besids, with her husband being always away, who can blame her. I hope your monster fase doesn't last all season bc I really miss the humble Bethany.
It sounds like all these he said she said that you and Jill have listened to from other people. I know how these misunderstandings can happen and then spin out of control. You and Jill are both guilty of things. You are about to have a BABY -- and you care for each other. Make up. I think Jill's arms would be surprisingly wide open. And her saying she likes an underdog she means she likes to take care of people. She seems genuinely happy for you as far as career and personal life go. I think it would surprise you how good it would feel to make a mends with her.
VERY HAPPY FOR YOU! :)
I just love your HOODSPA girl!! And I am so grateful you have finally been blessed with so much love in your life. Make sure you always are true to yourself, stand up to them bitches baby, LOL, and don't forget to teach all that you have learned to your kids...I did and they are the 3 best people I know and not just cause they're mine. God Bless, Stay Strong :)
Always stating it like it is. That's what's so great about you Bethenny. Really happy for you and your success! Kelly, Jill, and LuAnn are my least favorite ladies in the group....blech!
Hey bethenny I am so happy for you and your new found love. I also have a question, do you ever miss Jill and want to work things out with her? I loved you two together, dinamic duo, and I hope you two work everything out.
Bethenny,They are so catty ! I wish you all the best in the world with Jason and your baby ,along with ever else you set your mind too ! I do wish I had you around Boston to cook or even teach me how to eat right ... The other girls have nothin' on you . I love seeing you so Happy .
Bethenny, I hope at some point Jill and you can resume somewhat of a friendship. Alex is very level headed and I was glad that you talked to her right away abou the logo! Congrats on your relationship with Jason.
B, let me tell you how happy I am for the success you have found both professionally and personally. You are my FAVORITE housewife, you show that hard work and determination are rewarding and that "prince charming" isn't just in the story books of our childhood. I loathe the hate that is thrown your way by your cast mates and suggest that you keep your head high and keep doing what you're doing b/c your happiness is not dependent on their friendships. You have moved into a wonderful phase of your life and can't waste time or energy on anyone that can't understand that. Remember needy friends are like vampires, they suck you dry and then move on. Keep doing what you do and best of luck in everything ... MUAH BETHENNY!!!
Bethenny, I love you and I wish you the best. Stop being so hard on yourself and your friends...I know you will have an amazing life and you will be a great mom. I am old enough to be your mom and have children your age. My son is an actor and my daughter is an attorney. Both my kids are great human beings..there is only one thing I will say about raising kids, let them always know you love them and always give them boundries..the rest will come easy..Just love and enjoy them. I agree with you about Alex. After all the terrible things said about them when they first came on. They are prob. next to you, the only ones I would want to know.
Oh pooh......you and Jill love each other, need each other......make up! You're driving me crazy! With that said.....can't wait to see you as a mommy......how fun will that be? Ha! Can't wait!
Bethany you and jill used to be my favorite now its jill.. TEAM JILL all the way.. Success has gone to your head and now you think your too good for jill.. If you were a friend you would of went to her when bobby was sick but instead you sent a gift basket please.. Get over yourself your not all that
so because you didn't need anyone to lean on because you weren't going through a hardship, it was okay for you to not be there for your friends?
Hi Bethenny, I think your doing a great job in everything and I wish you the very best with everything take care
I personally thought Jennifer's comments were out of place since she did not know you personally. That would have surprised me too. I think it is a shame that Jill can talk about her issues with you to everyone else except coming to you in person to do so. She is too old for such mess! She and LuAnn's actions on this season have shocked me because they have been petty, childish, and extremely disrespectful in their actions. Jill needs to get over herself, grow up, and learn how to be a true friend to you. LuAnn needs to stop projecting her anger upon everyone else and D-E-A-L. I gave you a lot of credit for sitting there that long listening to her rants about you being "snarky". Keep doing you, Bethenny.
Why were you surprised that Ramona's friend knew the situation about your friendship with Jill? Don’t you realize that the world DOES revolve around you?
Bethany..don't you stress over a thing! You have done wonderful and I am soooo proud and happy for you! It is so good to see you succeed and be in love! It truly IS magical! That Jennifer person..it makes you wonder just how MUCH Jill really talks, lol! I mean, everyone seems to think you did something when really my idea is just what Ramona said, Jill likes the underdog and since you were doing so well, she found other poor, pitiful 'Me's' to latch onto. I think that because her mom got so much popularity on the show, she now wants to be that Golden Friend to the eyes of the world. Please! I actually commented to Luann and asked her, "If you are so quick to lash out at B for remarks (which she could have done at the reunion show!) then when are you going to give Jill the same lashing?! Jill has dummied just about everyone! But, seems to me that Jill and Luann are the most drama filled spectacle this season so far. Kelly wanted everyone, even Bobby, to know about her posing Nude..she is such an airhead! I really feel that your friend this season could be Ramona, she is like you when it comes to being a straight shooter. Just keep your head up and eyes on the prize! You are fabulous and We are proud of you. I will be back to make more comments, that's for sure!! xoxo
Bethenny, CONGRATULATIONS on moving in with Jason!!!
I am sooooo happy for you, and your new found love with Jason. You definitely deserve it and more!!
We all heard it last night from Jill'sown mouth "If you are in my team, then everything is fine, but if you are not, then you better watch out!, pretty telling of her.I don't believe for one second that this has anything to do with Bobby's cancer , that is just her excuse to try to rally support because what she did to you was very crappy. You know her better than I do so you are probably not surprise by her behavior. You stand strong and take care of you and your baby. Best wishes.
Bethanny congratulations on your successes! You are my favorite and someone I look up to. I am sure it hurts to be amid all of this drama with Jill..but time heals and a 10 yr friendship can't be easily broken. This is so weird for me to be writing you but I'm rooting for you (whatever that means) and I love watching..
Everyone loves Bethenny, including me. I live in a little town in Ok. and we don't have any book stores. I would love to have your books. I am 61 years old and live on a very small income. My husband of 42 years passed away and I'm so lonely. Without his income I couldn't afford to buy them anyway. Is there anyway I could get a copy? I live from week to week to see your shows. I don't care for the other House wives from the other states. I watch the NY shows over and over. I'm disabled and can't go to the closest book store in OK.City. You have sold so many, could you spare a free one of each? I don't ever ask for anything free, so this is unusual for me. But I want them so bad. I don't have any entertainment, except your show and I want your books so bad. I don't have any family or friends and I would be so grateful.
Bethenny, you had time to meet for lunch with Alex to ask her to help you with a logo, but you did not have a decency to at least call her and let her know sorry we are going with something else? This is rude. As to Ramona’s friend you not here were the one that started the conversation and complain how Jill can not be happy for you. You expect people to sit quiet and let you bash someone? Who do you think you are? Finally, take your own advise and “get a hobby” that does not involve Jill, LuAnn and Kelly- They will be better off with out you.
Bethenny I am so happy for you and your wonderful success both in your career and love life. I will however caution you: a mistake that so many of us women make is falling in love and cutting our friends off. Jill may be the biggest pain to your backside but she was there for you when the first Jason broke your heart. It's very difficult to find friends so giving that help restore you after a major dissapointment. To tell someone that they need to "get a habit" is rude and stating that you hit the wall doing 90 is no excuse for hurting a "friend". Be a real woman, meet with Jill and squash this foolishness. You reprimanded Jill last year for talking about you to Ramona yet you came out the gate doing the very same thing. Check yourself and congrats on the baby. You're an inspiration to others wanting to "have it all". You've proven that it is possible. Fix your relationship with Jill because men come and go but true friends are forever.
Congratulation on your life being where you want it, I hope you and Jill can resolve your problems, but I think there are too many "cooks in the kitchen" and it just may not happen and thats OK. Life lesson learned. Hope your pregnancy is going well....Take good care
Bethany! I feel like we are best friends(in my head of course lol) You are really proof that women can have it all. It might not be when we want it but it comes eventually. I am 29 and all my friends are either getting or are married already. My career is awesome and that has been my focus for the last few years but I admit I was getting nervous. Watching you and Jason yesterday I felt like there might be hope for me ;-) Please mend your friendship with Jill. Its was something reassuring about your friendship. Feelings are hurt but the love is still there. Good luck!
B girl - You are the show!! I always appreciate your humor and honesty. Unlike others you are not about the drama.
Keep your head up. You owe people nothing but honesty and forgiveness and I think you have given both. Your starting a wonderful life and a new family and I think your wise to be cautious who you let influence that arena - even if it means hurting people you previously had relationship with.
love ya B
Bethenny, Thank you for talking to Alex and being honest with her! She deserves that and you don't need to have that weighing on you. Great job.
You are fantastic as always. Honest, blunt and snarky. Just the way most of us like you. Not superficial, phony or pretentious like some other people..(Kelly & Luann).
I like you Bethenney, and I agree that Jill comes across as needy, but you really should have done more than send flowers when her husband had cancer.
Last season I really liked you. So far this season, it seems all you do is talk about the past cat fights. Its time to grow up and move on from the past. Good luck with Jason and the kid
Hey Bethenny, I just wanted to say that I am so happy for you for finding love and going your own direction. When I found my special guy all my friends were mad that I had chosen to spend time with him instead of them. I told them that if they were truly my friends then they would support my decisions and just accept me. It didnt work out so well but I feel better off. Everyone always says thats friends are forever and you should choose them before your boyfriend or girlfriend but do you really plan to spend the rest of your life with your friends? And will they be there for you when they get married? I doubt it. I hope you continue to stay as strong as you always have been and not let other people affect your decisions. In the end, it's YOUR life and you should live it like you want. GOOD LUCK! and CONGRATS!
