Where to fit in and where to find happiness.

When people talk about "society" as in socialite, that's not me. What is great about New York is its pulse, its energy, its variety and creative freedom. This city really is a melting pot where everyone fits in somewhere. If you think that I view the Upper East Side as New York, you're mistaken. New York is a chameleon. There's art, theatre, Wall Street, music, socialites, the wealthy, the beatnicks, the vegetarian yogis -- the list goes on. New York is whatever you want it to be. Everyone fits in somewhere, and hopefully I fit in in a few places.

That being said, I do like to get away from time to time. I love Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Malibu and Colorado, in particular. I love great weather and the ability to either surf or snowboard whenever you like. I'm an outdoorsy kind of girl, so I could definitely live outside of NYC. Connecticut is also beautiful, as is the Hudson River Valley. Those places are great because you have a summer and winter home in one and you don't have to escape in the summer. Oh, and I do like the suburbs. I love having a backyard, a huge kitchen and a car, things that can be hard to come by in New York!

Im horrified that Jason and your staff did not stop after running over a family of raccoons. would he not stop for a dog either?....there is no difference. Racoons are feeling, intelligent animals who live in complex family groups. how would you/he feel if someone ran over Cookie and did not stop to see if he was ok? truly sad and speaks volumes about Jasons small mind and lack of integrity.

Bethany, show was a snooze fest. A peddle boat, really? And it looked low budget.You, Cookie, baby,and food blogger are adorable but I was cringing at your sexual harassment towards your driver. Why was Jason running over raccoons and not stopping left in?

Your behind the person jabs are witty but to say them directly to your food blogger and male driver was awful. I kept thinking how would it sound if roles were reversed.

I can not believe your husband ran over four raccoons, left them there maimed and then said he laughed about it! Wow! Unbelievably sad. You constantly talk about how he is thought of as such a great guy. From the beginning my friends and I have felt that he comes off as a bit small minded compared to you. It feels like when you truly see how wonderful of a person you are that you will have a much clearer perspective on your relationship. I love your therapist...very wise.

Dear Bethenny, I love your show and your beautiful family. Brin is so beautiful God Bless Her,however I cringed when you boarded the skinny girl bus to Red Bank NJ,and Brin was not in a car seat. I am the mom of 5 adult children, and am also employed as a full time live out Nanny for 2 beautiful girls. Please,please even if you go around the corner,have that precious little girl in a car seat,I only say this because I never want to see anything happen,You are such a wonderful Mom and Jason is a great Dad. Thank you for coming into my home every Monday night and making me laugh and sometimes cry with you. Much Love,Health and Happiness, Rita

Bethenny! I have always been a fan, now I am so very happy for you and Jason. I have seen a couple work together with their daughter and son, their dog, their careers and their individuals loves of life. It really does work and you can have it all! I would love to see you do another show was a family if not the New York Housewives. Bless you and yours.
