Bethenny Frankel NY

Bethenny talks about her first reaction to the pregancy, if "bayboo" is a boy or a girl, and baby names!

on Apr 15, 20100

 

Upon first meeting Sonja I thought she was bubbly and engaging. There was so much going on around us that we didn't really get to connect, but my first impression was definitely a positive one. She doesn't strike me as someone with an agenda. She simply wants to have fun.

My letter to Bobby was to communicate to him that I was thinking of him and sorry for any pain, fear or suffering he was enduring. I let him know that I had no idea that his condition was more than a procedure. I also let him know that I sent flowers rather than call after his procedure because I found it inappropriate and awkward to call Jill's husband when she and I weren't speaking whatsoever and she had told me "We're done."

I thought Alex's fashion show was very professional and very well-produced. I thought the girls looked terrific, and Alex, in particular, walked that runway like a pro.

It was a really quick flash of all the girls modeling, but I thought they did a great job. Kelly and Alex have experience modeling, so this was a cake walk for them. Poor Ramona was a wreck and looked as if she were going to the electric chair. However, Ramona looked beautiful and the dress was terrific on her. Who the hell cares? Did they have fun? Isn't that all that matters? None of us are saving lives here, and thank God for Ramona's face in that scene because it made it hilarious.

Dear Bethenny, I have never in my life commented on blogs leave alone trying to follow a show. U r my absolute favorite on the show and Ive been following it religiously. The only reason I need to comment on this particular blog(i know its a pretty old blog) is my daughter. she was born on july27th 2007. she is almost 3...im planning her 3rd b'day already and guess what? we call her BAYBOO!!!Her real name is Mishti and my husband and I started calling her BAYBOO as soon as we got pregnant. Isnt that crazy?? I literally fell off my chair when I read that Jason was calling the baby "BAYBOO"!!! infact Mishti is so used to her being called by that name, that now she has started correcting everyone in school saying "no! no mishti...im babyboo!" lol. my best wishes to you and your family. regards-Priya

congrats bethany and jason on the birth of your daughter. wishing you well on your spin off show. can"t stand jill!!!!

What?
What?

I noticed that when you were taking your pregnancy test and before sitting on the commode (gross), you had far more than one pregancy test in your vanity drawer. Were you and Jason trying get pregnant? If not, why did you have so many pregnancy tests in the drawer? Did Jason know what you were up to? Was it a way to trap him? Did you lie to him about birth control?

Bethenney- Congratulations on your new baby, your husband, and your successes. You've always been my fave on the housewives shows, and how great to have watched you reach these milestones! You'll never be the same now (mommyhood) and it's well worth it!

As for the show drama....that's why we all watch it- can't stop! :) I couldn't believe it when I saw the commercial for your new show too! Yay! All the best to you and Jason.

Good Luck in all your adventures!!!! Sorry things were leaked the way they were. I think you have a great friend in Alex she seems to not be all about the DRAMA and you are at a point in your life that you really dont need any of that. So many wonderful things are happening with you right now, you don't need anyone raining on your parade. And I don't feel Alex would ever do that.

Congratulations. I hope you and Jason are happy. Also, forget about Jill. She is not worth your time. You have a good friend, Alex, who seems like she will always be there for you.

You have been given a beautiful gift (a baby and love). I know that you will cherish both. Reality TV is a false "reality" and shame on any of us to judge people on these shows as we only see about 1/10 of who they really are. I know that despite the ups and downs of both wife-hood and motherhood, you will enjoy every minute of it. Who cares what the other wives think (good or bad); the only people you need to ever worry about is yourself, Jason and bayboo; everyone else is a superfluous part of your life to either enjoy or not; but THEY do not determine who you are.

Double standard on your part ok to talk about people as long as in the end you bring it back with a good comment, come on all the bull with you and Jill was just that, your reaching out her not wanting to do it on camera, please you knew you were having a baby, and getting married and now who needs who, stop it please

A baby changes you in so many ways!!! Embrace every minute, moment, every second. Be thankful for this child has chosen you and Jason to be it's parents.

Your priorities, the way you love, look at life, others and yourself will change. I look forward to seeing you grow.

May your blessings be!!!

I have never commented on any blogs or any websites but I felt that it wouldn't hurt to give you words of encouragement after all the brutality you've been receiving from the ladies. Just wanted to say keep doing what you are doing! You are truly inspiring, it seems like you have really worked hard for everything you have. You are an amazing women, who seems to be the only real one on the show. (I love your sense of humor). Everyone has their own life and people just need to learn that LIFE GOES ON! Fill it with people you love, AND people who LOVE YOU. Good luck with the baby and congrats on your hubbie!

Bethenny,

I never write on these things but want to tell you I felt the same way when I found out I was having my first child. I was in the bathroom with my dog, took the test, and immediately thought it was defective. Then, I took another and then another. Yep ... preggers! I was thrilled but panicked. I took my dog for a walk to process it and told a complete stranger the news. I was in such a daze!!! My husband went completely white when I told him. He was happy, but looked like he was going to pass out. Six years later we are the proud parents of two growing boys and couldn't be happier. Motherhood and marriage really enhances a life. Blessings to all three of you (baby included). May you have a long happy loving life together.

Hi Bethenney! This is a totally unrelated comment but,you have the most beautiful skin and I was just wondering if you had any beauty tips. You have such a healthy glow and I imagine it is due to all of your healthy eating or do you use anything in particular on our face? You should definitely add a skincare line to all of your other products. I know that I would buy it! All the best to you, Jason and your new baby!

Hey Bethenny, We will never meet, but you are the Bravo star that I care about the most. You are a woman of the 2000's and everyone should learn from you. I am truely happy for you on your impendeing birth. I was 18 when my husband and I had our first child, six weeks after my mother died, on Mothers Day, in 1967. I can relate to all of your emotions and concerns, but just by seeing you, and seeing your beliefs and the love you show for your man, I know you will do SO well in the position of MOTHER. I wish you good luck, good love, and much happiness in your future. I think you are a wonderful woman, wife, and mother to be, and I would be proud to call you my daughter. One of your MANY fans, Christine Gutt

Bethenny, I love you as a person I respect you and if anyone else can't see that then it's there loose. It is time to do for you and your little one because when you hold your child in your arms for the first time it's instent love and you will never have that kind of love for anyone else... Stay strong and god bless you.

Hi Bethany, Congratulations on your marriage and soon to arrive baby! I just have to tell you that you are my fav housewife. You are the real deal!! I watch every episode of NYC housewives. Sorry your life has dealt so many heartaches. I know where your coming from on that issue. I enjoy watching you tell the blunt truth to all who cares to listen... too bad the other housewives seem to "dance" around the truth. Anyway, really like your show and love your book as well! Wish you and Jason and your babyboo the best life has to offer. You truly deserve it!!! Take Care and God Bless :)

I forgot to add that if you had met sonia when you were single, I believe the two of you would really have hit it off and spent time out together. You both are strong women who dont depend on others to define them or their happiness and you both like to have fun! If she is being introduced this season to possibly fill your spot why you go on your new adventure, they found someone to spark things up while you are away!

Congratulations to you and jason. you two are great together, and will be wonderful parents. once the baby is here you will stop worry and just start doing...I couldnt be more happy for you. Individually, you are very refreshing to watch because you are honest and you go to the source and you admit to your mistakes. plus you like to joke around!

False friends can be so tiresome. Better to move on from Jill now befoe she starts taking credit for getting you pregnant or worse. You are going to be a great mom!

Congrats on all the good things happening to you, just relax and enjoy them and leave all that other BS alone! Stay away from the "Mean Girl", she just wants to be the center of attention.

Wow, so much to say. First and foremost you deserve the best and please stop appologizing for someone else's ignorance, so your not perfect. Who the heck is? no one! I think that J will just have to get it together. You have so many great things happening in your life. I am so excited for you. I love how people say people are toxic, I think it is an excuse because they have to admit their failure and sometimes people help others see themselves in a new light. Stay positive and your smile it's contagious ;)CONGRATS!!

Congratulations on your engagement and your baby. I think you are a fabulous woman and you have great things ahead of you.

Real friends don't try to control you or put you down, they stick with you through thick and thin. Jill is not a true friend to anyone on the show. Stick with Alex and Simon.

Bethany! You're the reason why I got hooked on this show. I love the way you keep it real and you say whats on your mind, you also admit when you're in the wrong. Jill and Luann are annoying, they remind of 7th graders. Besides her jewelry the countess is quite rude darling.

LALA7409

You can have it all Bethany. You are living proof of that. I am so proud of you for holding it all together, for remaining a good friend despite all the negativity surrounding you. It broke my heart to watch you sit there pouring your heart out to Jill only for her to turn around and play the victim once again. I honestly don't know what good it would do for you 2 to bother making up. After some of the stunts she pulled I don't think You will ever be able to trust her again. Just my opinion!

Bethany, So happy about your baby and engagement. I really respect that you have started a business and are working very hard to make it successful. It is really sad that Jill is such a mean girl and does such high school crap that she has so turned me off to the show. She is not happy unless she is mad at someone. Hang in there and don't waste any more time on her.

We love you! It's hard to watch people rip on you (as you are one of the only normal people on the show), things are probably diffent and a lot has happened now on 4/22 but we only see what's happened on the show in the past. Hope all is well - best wishes... Amy & Nancy in Chicago

Was that staged for TV, or was it the actual first pregnancy test?

You say things how they are. I do the same and it certainly isn't always appreciated. The happiness you have now is long coming but well deserved. You will find that with having a family, the Jill's of the world will lose their shine and importance. I think you probably already know that! :) When you have your baby you will be blown away. It may or may not happen immediately but it will happen. It will open you up to a new world. One of which you have no experience and will question yourself at time. It is just how it is. I had my first at 38. But I am here to tell you that the love you have for your infant will be like no other!
