Jill likes to battle. She can't help it. It's her nature. I make snarky comments and can't resist a one-liner, and she can't resist a battle. Everyone has his or her stuff. I hope Jill gets everything she wants out of this season. I play my own game and stay in my own lane. I have no time to get caught up in minutia. I was pregnant the entire season, so it put everything in perspective. In addition, I was launching Skinnygirl margarita, The Skinnygirl Dish, preparing for a spin-off and maintaining a relationship. Petty nonsense was low on the totem pole. I am not at battle. I don't need or look for allies nor do I rally troops to build me up. I can deal with anyone, anywhere, anytime on my own.
I asked LuAnn for a drink to try to mend our superficial relationship. I wanted to tell her to drop the countess nonsense because it is inconsequential. It was lost on her. The meeting in and of itself was more superficial and made me realize we simply don't see eye to eye. It didn't necessarily create more conflict; it just made me realize that I don't want these kinds of relationships in my life. Again, pregnancy made me tolerate nonsense a bit less.
Congrats, Bethenny!!!! I hope you are as happy as you deserve to be.
You are being nice but I see alot of GREEN jealous envy with the others. Sad. Jealousy is unattractive and very unladylike. My fav was Kelly in the restaurant....Planet Kelly!!!!
Bethanny, Everyone that knows me cannot believe I watch this show, I am a serious History Channel or British TV fan. You are the reason I watch. Living in NYC and being an average, middle class, single woman who lives a very real life, I gasp at the housewives self-importance, vanity, shallowness and pretention! It is truly absurd, but you are the one grounded and genuine woman in the group. You champion us girls who achieved and succeeded through intelligence, hard work, discipline and humor....not marrying a rich guy! When everyone else is making excuses for bad behavior and trying to devide and defeat, you, although sometimes brutal, are honest and eloquent. You always start out very diplomatically and only when pushed, does the acid tongue come out. Very entertaining!! Thanks for making at least one 6th of the Housewives real and great success to you!
Bethany...I think you are the coolest out of all the NYC Housewives...Jill...one word...ANNOYING!...Ramona - she is a trip...keep doing you. I think you have a good perspective on what the show is really about...this is a journey and its good to see that you are not allowing it to become your life but rather allowing the show to be a part of your life...Good luck to you!
Bethenny, I am enormously happy with all the positive things that has happened with your life since the last season of RHONY. You are an inspiration to me in so many ways. I am 34 years old and have been trying to conceive for a very long time. It warms my heart to see someone that I know will be an incredible mother become pregnant. I am so happy to see that you have decided to eliminate people from your life that may have been toxic to you. I am extremely happy for you, and I look forward to your continued success.
So far I am so disappointed...I have always loved the relationship between Jill and Bethenny...they had the most hilarious one liners....Bethenny was always my favorite housewife of all the series but after tonight and watching the previews..she may become my least favorite...I don't know how you can go from being so close to someone..spending time in her house in the hamptons to now being like enemies..don't get it..sorry
love you....honest, hard working and straight shooter...keep it real! I thought I would be devastated after hearing you and Jill were fighting......now I just don't like Jill.
I just wanted to let you know, you are my favorite housewife out of all of them! You're independent, funny, and the only "drama" that comes your way is from the other women when they act crazy about stupid things.
I actually look up to you a lot because I identify a lot of myself in you. I'm still in college, but the way you handle things teaches me how to handle things. I hope you read this! haha, keep being the confident, strong women that you are!
best of luck to you and your new family!
it's funny that in her photo shoot bethanny had so much make up, she looked like Latoya Jackson ....!!!! and she's the one that really looks like a DRAGQUEEN!!! I know some of my best friends are dragqueens .....snap!!
Bethenny, Way to go with your "nude" pic!!! Congrats on your new love too! I saw you on the post-show and you look adorable being pregnant! That is great! When you didn't have a love interest in your life you had more time for Jill, however Jill "engulfs" people and you definitely need your space! I think that you are definitely being "real" and not a phony. Take Care and I'm rootin` for you! LifeInStride
I love you Bethenny! I think that the falling out between you an Jill is surprising, but it happens and it's time to move on. I'm glad that you are moving on to bigger and better things like your book and the PETA add. I am looking forward to reading your book; it seems like a great read. Congrats on your baby!! I am definitely excited for you and wish you the best!
I am still a fan. I am sad to see your friendship with Jill come to an end, but I am sure both parties had valid points. But, life is short and you must spend it with those you love. Jill isn't as confident as she tries to act, which is why she always has to "fight" and get a team mentality in any situation. Sad to see, but for her to deal with. Best of luck with the HOT man, baby and business. I love your candor and wit. GO GIRL!
BETHENNY I LOVE YOU! YOU ARE MY FAVORITE NY HOUSEWIFE. TO ME YOU ARE THE MOST REAL AND NOT UPPITY LIKE THE OTHERS.CONGRATS ON THE PREGNANCY AND THE NEW MAN IN YOUR LIFE! YOU DESERVE IT!
Bethanny...watched you with Andy Cohen after the Housewives of NYC season opener. You look fabulous...baby bump and all! As for the Housewives, I realize that LuAnne has been going through a lot but she must have been stewing over what she was going to say while waiting for you to show up. She should have simply declined the get together if she wanted to do the unclassy thing and attack you over something so stupid...I didn't get her either. Secondly, you should have asked her if she was going to pick up the tab for the fuel it cost you to drive out there to meet her at her next to her house and at her convenience...lol. Look at it this way, she did exactly the same thing to Ramona on the yacht! The world does not revolve around LuAnne and I have heard her say some not so nice or classy things herself...so she really needs to get off her high horse and stop being so arrogant...this is America...we don't give a damn about someone's title or money unless it benefits us personally, TRUE! As for you and Jill, I think Jill just feels left out...she was always your biggest supporter (excluding the time your skinnygirl ads were taken down at the bar during the fundraiser)...it would have been better to simply tell her, Jill its nothing personal but you weren't invited because I wanted to spend some quality alone time with Jason...that would have been the totally honest thing to say, NO? I truly believe that she loved you dearly and that's why she was hurt by what you said. And, you should have taken a few minutes to go and see her and Bobby when he was in the hospital...it would have been the nice and right thing to do. P.S. So glad the houswives of NYC is back! I missed you.
So very happy for you this season with so many things going well: career, relationship, pregnancy. Big wishes for a healthy pregnancy and baby!
I think your perception on situations/people is astoundingly accurate. I absolutely love this about you. But wow you bite hard; "all bark and no bite" is anything but the truth when it comes to you--whew! But again, your perception on even this is very aware. You know you've got a very biting tongue at times, and the fact that you own it makes the flaw seem a little more palatable.
Congrats to Bethenny on her pregnancy! I have always liked NYC Housewives the best because the people seemed a bit more sensible and the quarrels a little less petty. But this season is not shaping up that way. Bethenny's snarky comments have always been hilarious and I loved her the best because of that. But I do think she may be going for the jugular more now and that's disappointing. It's also sad to see Bethenny and Jill "break-up", because they had a really good... funny dynamic. Without that I don't know if there will be any stress relief for the show. Jill has always seemed like a stable, reasonable person, so it would shock me to see that she was so insecure that she had to ride Bethenny's coattails as Bethenny made it seem tonight. But I do think that Bethenny has always supported Jill... so is Jill not returning that support?
LuAnn was a fav until last season with her RULES. Enough already! And her insistence that the person inviting has to pay is ridiculous! I don't know if Miss Manners agrees, but it made me think that maybe that's why I don't recall LuAnn doing any of the inviting on the show!!! So she never has to pay. There are times one should pay... like when you are inviting guests to celebrate your special occasion... otherwise, it should be on can/want to do basis. But I hate her marriage ended.
Mario and Ramona... YUK! They should never make nasty comments about anyone. They are so rude and they don't know it... which is unforgivable.
Kelly seems to have found some humility...maybe because of her legal troubles. But if Bethenny wants to call someone dumb or drag queen should she consider Kelly?
I had no idea you had such a great figure until I saw you in that photo shoot! I alway thought you were too skinny. The wig was amazing for you! Fuller curlier hair is very flattering on you. I was shocked by how confronational and out spoken you've become. I think it's partailly due to the fact your in a relationship and happy, it gives you confidence, but it's also the pregnancy hormones. It makes me sad that you had a falling out with Jill, although I can see why, she acted like your mom. She does that with everyone though. I hope you guys work it out. Love you!
Congrats first off for the baby. I agree Jill just got her knickers twisted and just wanted to get everyone on her side as fast as possible. Also LuAnn, the whole countess thing gets on my nerves as well. She threw that out there every chance she got as if she was royalty. Um not so much. That just makes her full of herself and makes her a joke.
I wanted to also say I am so glad to see you have someone now. You two are just to cute. I can't wait to see the rest of this season!
you are hilarious. can you and jill please be freinds again. i miss yall talking crap about the other wives together.
Bethanny I totally admire you for being a strong, independent woman with a good head on her shoulders. Your honesty is refreshing and it's good to know you're cutting out all of the fakeness in your life. I wish you luck with your new baby!
Hi Bethenny, I am a fan of the show but this season may be too over the top. Too much petty, inconsequential drama and not enough that's funny and entertaining! You are the sanest and Jason is a sweetheart. All the best to both of you and the baby. By the way--LuAnn being soooooo concerned about a comment from LAST YEAR and worrying about the bar tab, so sad. Where is that fun, cool LuAnn?? Hoping for better episodes to come.
Hey Bethany, wow you are on fire, man you need to chill, I think it's all going to your head. RELAX!
I agree w/ Bethenny entirely about Jill and Luan.... Jill likes to battle and talk smack about others and this is seen since the beginning of the 3rd season! Jill and Luan were very different in the second season and the rest of the housewives kept real, in their own crazy ways each, but bottom line REAL!!! and what's up w/ Luan expecting you to pay for the surfing classes???!!!! so everytime you invite her to go somewhere, do something, eat, drink... you're expected to pay????!!! YIKES! maybe sometimes for drinks or lunch, but not always and not for everything - specially for classes kinda expensive!!!! Hey, I'm 7 months pregnant and this first episode got me sooo mad and upset hahaha looking at the previews for this season, I hope this season will not make my baby come early from making me upset ;) Bethenny, I'm on your side :)
The drag queen comment to LuAnn was completely out of line and mean. It was not your usual snarky comment.
I tend to enjoy the bickering and such....but Bethenny and Jill were my team to root for. The way things are now, I'm team Jill, but with an opinion mind. I mean, Bethenny, to not visit a man who has opened his home to you while he's in the hospital with cancer is just cold. NO ONE is so busy that they can't show compassion and care for someone who has been good to them.
Congrats on your child and marriage to Jason. I wish you the best --- I hope when you have it, and you can look back at some of this, you find a different perspective and come back to your old self.
I just LOVE you. Thank goodness you are back. You remind me a lot of myself...someone who has a very dry sense of humor that sometimes people don't get.
Congrats on the baby and the husband!!!!!!!
I love you Bethenny you tell it like it is. All the others are so fake. You are my favorite housewife. Thanks for the laughs and good luck with the baby.
Bethany, I just have to say, you are the most real person on that show, when you are confused at something they are doing and saying, I am too, I am pretty sure that the rest of the world is also, anyone that watches it has the response that I do, what the hell? We all agree, you would totally fit in with us, we are not up there and everyone else down there ok? In my world we are all up here together. So tickled with your pregnancy, you looked awesome with Andy!!! You can really do better for friends, someone that is as real as you is the only person that is truly going to understand you, when your fake and out to look bigger than you are, you find fault with everyone, as they say misery loves company! Take care Miss Bethany, Vanessa
Bethenny. I am so happy for you! You finally have someone who deserves you. A gorgeous man for a gorgeous strong woman. He seems like such a caring sweet man and he deserves you. I can't wait for your new show. I am thankful that you are on tv, you are strong and opinionated and someone who says what she means and means what she says. I really look up to you. Thank you for not apologizing for being a strong beautiful woman! And, for making those amazingly wonderful skinny margaritas!!! LOVE THEM!!!
Way to go Bethany. I love your snarky remarks! What planet does Luann come from? She thinks that because someone "invites" her to do something she expects them to pay? Helloooooooooooo. It is not like that in the real world.
Bethenney...got to say YOU are the reason I watch this goofy show (not in a creepy way). Your sense of humor & your smart-mouth one-liners place you so far above the others. One question...how the hell did you manage NOT to strangle Kelly? Orchids to you for your restraint! Blessings on new baby...every "girl party" we have in the mountains...well. you have a standing invite. You're a classy, talented, funny broad who shoots straight from the hip ...that's enough to get you membership in our Pantaloon Maverick Society....you are welcome to come to either weekend when we take over Red River, NM....good work, SkinnyGirl...LL, Durango, CO
Congratulations on your pregnancy and upcoming marriage. However, the show as a huge disappointment. I've heard you describe this season as toxic, but how is it that everyone seems to share the opinion that you have changed yet they are all toxic in your opinion? Maybe it's because it's all too easy to smile to someone's face and call them a dumb drag queen behind their back because you seem to think it's clever. It's not ... and it's old. But hey, you don't need them since you have a spin off, right?
You have always been a favorite of mine. So I'm going to take a cue from you and be Honest. At the beginning of your blog you mention that the housewives aren't "deep down that close" which I totally get. I understand that you had a real life with real friends prior to this show. But your friendship with Jill appeared to be very genuine, very solid, very close.
That is why I am kind of surprised at how casual you seem at the demise of a friendship. I'm sure it is a bigger deal that you let on (?) I'm not one to vote via text message as to 'who's side I'm on' because I don't know either of you therefore eliminating me from actually knowing the situation.
But I will say, for what its worth, that for anyone who considers themselves fans of the show, its sad to watch...
Hi there, it's exciting to see you in this next phase of your life and you enjoying every minute. You keep looking forward, keep your always positive attitude and take good care of yourself during this most precious time. Wishing you and the two new loves in your life much happiness!
P.S. Watched you with Andy tonight~great show and you do look so pretty.
Keep doing what you are doing. You are the most down to earth one on this crzy show. You're right Jill thinks she is the queen and she knows everything. The Today Show incident sums it up. She really beieves that she is a "celebrity".
Bethenny, First of all, you look adorable pregnant! You are so right about pettiness and this ongoing Countess nonsense. Seriously..."off with their heads" is rarely well thought of in Charm School courses. I rarely agree with anything out of Ramona's mouth but her remark to LuAnne about titles not being relevant in America is true. Inconsequential, as you wrote.
Bethany Congrats on your up coming "Motherhood"! My children are 26 and 21, and motherhood it is still the best thing that ever happened to me. You go to hell and back being a mom and it is worth every second!(worry, anticipation etc.) Anything except your child becomes very inconsequential!
As a mom I refuse to engage, with psycho's, drama queens, and you know, those with higher elevations than my own! You seem to be establishing those same perimeters! Good for you stay true to yourself!
Bethenny, Congratulations on your relationship and your baby! I'm am so happy for you! I have adored you since the 1st season of the show, but I'm really sad to see your rift with Jill. I thought you two were the only sensible people on the show. Your relationship seemed real and genuine. Jill was there for you when things weren't going well in your life. Now that your life is going up-and-up (congrats, btw) you seem to be done with her. I know it's reality tv, but remember to stay friends with the people who were there for you at the low times. It seems she just wants to be a part of your life--let her. Again, I realize I don't know the whole back story, but please don't give up on that relationship; it's too important.
Again, congratulations on your pregnancy, and best wishes!
Welcome Back, Bethenney! My god, have us viewers missed you. Your punchy, pithy commentary/remarks are 24 carat comedic gold. Thank you for keeping the other wives honest.
Jill is the last to post her blog so she can see what the rest of you write and then yap about it. Her brassy personality is so hard to take. Poor Bobbie.
Bethenny, I used to be your biggest fan....What has happened to you? After all Jill has done for you, I can't believe you wouldn't visit her husband in the hospital. Shame on you.
Betheny, you are my favorite person on the show, you are a straight razor and the other wives are playing with bics.... I cant wait to see your spin off. I will watch anything you are on and even Tivo you...not the show ...YOU...you are so funny, and even though you talk behind someone's back (and is it really talking behind their back when you know they are going to see it along with millions of other people anyway? I dont get that)...you own everything you say...I love that about you. This season looks great!!
Wow.. good for you and your new life.. Jill already grated on me last season and Lulu and so superficial..
Always liked Alex and didnt know why you didnt and Ramona is growing on me..
I don't know, I understand that this is a show & the housewives are put together to hang out and do things together for the show. But, unless you are a really good actress, you did form a real friendship with Jill. Watching last season & seeing her hold your hand at the reunion show, talk deeply about your life and situation regarding your career vs. relationships. It seems to me that was real and she was truly there for you. And now that you have huge success and a man you can so quickly drop her from your life. Not cool. I used to be a fan of yours, but you lost me.
You use the show for self promotion and are up front about it! So good for you, now that you are having a family your whole world and focus changes and that's fine, too. I do think you can and should be more diplomatic at times and not cloak everything in the "I say what feel"....after a while it becomes grating and annoying as we wait for your zippy come backs...honesty at times is hurtful.
Team Bethenny all the way! I knew Jill's M.O. from season 1, but no one believed me! She is needy and it's all about here! Ally is going to need some serious therapy! Jason seems amazing!!
Bethanny, I have always loved watching you because you seem the most grounded and real. However, I think it was really mean to call LuAnn a "dumb drag queen". Her kids watch this. How hurtful is that?!?! I know there are worse things that could have been said, but it really came out as harsh. I think your one-liners are hilarious, but name-calling should be below you. You're better than that.
