Ya gotta love Ramona. Ramona can't help herself, and somehow she'll always end up in the middle of something. Thank God for her. Our show needs her like the desert needs water.
Jill's SAKS party made my LuAnn lashing look like a calm stroll in the park. I joke that Ramona has a mild form of turrets. When she launches, there is no turning back. Jason and I watch in disbelief. She made me feel sane, so I thank her for that. To be fair, asking Kelly about her breast implants was not an appropriate inquiry/conversation, regardless of where they were. I did find it perfect, though, that LuAnn condones discussing it behind Kelly's back, but never to her face "dahling."
Bethanny, I loved you last season, but you just aren't nice this season and it's not becoming you. I think you are stressed out and it shows. You seem so negative all the time and it's hard to watch. It's one thing to be upfront and honest and another to be mean about it. I think you lost a good friend in Jill. I thought you made good friends!
Yeah, your comments to Luann were not nice and I'm glad you owned it. I'm so sorry Jill is trashing you this season. I agree with Jason. You don't need that drama and toxic energy with the baby coming. Maybe someday Jill and you and make amends when she's in a place to own her part in this. But she's too bent on trashing you right now and you should just focus on yourself, Jason and the baby. Congrats Bethenny on the upcoming wedding and new baby!
Just watched the show and wanted to say so happy for you and all the good things coming your way. Jason and a new baby!!! You deserve it all!!! I am sad about Jill she is not looking to good this season. Very petty, I think she IS jealous of you. I keep thinking about the fact she called NBC to complain they were having you on and not her. That said it all for me!!! Glad to see you and Kelly getting along. Watch your back with the Countess!! Best of Luck! Carol
You really need to chill! Your claws come out in EVERY scene! Last season, you seemed to be a lot more subdued and less abrasive than you are this season. You look great, no doubt! But it seems your new look and newfound success have gone to your head.
Hopefully motherhood changes your attitude! You need a reality check!
I would like you so much more if you helped Alex out. She is the only one who actually does not talk behind backs.And hopefully expecting your first child, you will see how talking about her kids so much is so so wrong. You are not a hypocrite like Jill and LuAnn. Though neither you nor Alex are perfect, at least you are honest and own it. Defend her. Say that. Own it and have some compassion for her and her babies. It's the right thing to do. They are vile and sad. Who says nasty things about little boys?Any mother would cry over that. How sad was that?
Beth you don't deserve what the other women are doing to you. Sometimes people cannot see others happy. Unfortunately that is Jill and she uses others to hurt you which is wrong. We are rooting for you. Go forth and be happy and we all say things we wish we would not have said. Hang in there.
Give me a break. Get off your high horse and come back down to reality. Yes viewers can read into things and we see whats going on. I am happy you found someone but if you were that strong and independet than why is everythig Jason "says". Wow..
We so love you! Bethenny and Ramona once again you made the show. We are so excited to be invited to your wedding, we just don't get to attend until it airs! Hope it's the perfect day. We'll drink Skinnygirl in your honor.
I like Jason, cause he is totally drama free. I also agree with what he says about surrounding yourself with positive people. Now that you guys are having a family, drama isn't your priority anymore, although in this recent episode it seemed like you feed on drama. I feel like you're attacking everyone because you have so much anger in you. I, like Jill, thought that the Fashion Show really was not the time and place for all that drama. You, bringing all the drama up, especially in front of people and celebrities just makes you seem very immature and not worthy of Jason. If anything I think Jason should be a good influence on you but so far you went the opposite direction from last season.
I'm trying hard to believe everything you say and your intentions for doing/saying things, but it's a bit hard. I thought last season you were the coolest, being drama-free and super straightforward. Now you are still straightforward but I think you need to find your limit when it comes to those things. I guess basically, this episode just showed viewers a very different side of Bethenny.
GO Bethenny! I would love to be bold like you. YOU make this show. The rest are so freaking worried about how they appear! YOU, on the other hand, are real and frank and honest ... I feel like we see the real you.
I like Alex more than last season. However, the rest of your Housewife posse', including the "househubands?", are INSANE...
(Except Jill's mom ... she's awfully sweet, and Rosie, who should WRITE A TELL ALL BOOK!)
YOU ROCK, BETHENNY!
ypu and alex are the sweetest..keep it real girl and keep it right.. wish u the best..iam very happy for you..enjoy ur new life U DESERVE IT
U-R my favorite! no doubt. You say it...you own it... love that about you. If it is real...I feel awful about your loss of friendship and closeness with Jill. Jill does seem to be the one person that means the most to you, girlfriend-wise...even tho' she is a pill! Love your total honesty!!! Annie
Congrats to you and Jason. It is very unfortunate that you and Jill are not friends anymore. I've noticed that she doesn't dig you on her blogs. Why are you doing that to her? She continues to congratulate you on your impending nuptials and baby. I don't know all the details of your falling out but I think the rift has two parties involved, not just one. Hopefully, you two can reconcile.
Bethenny-You have always been my favorite housewife and you always make me laugh. But this season you seem to be "coming from a place of mean." Where is the happy, funny, kind girl from last season? Your tongue is so sharp that it no longer feels like friendly banter.
Bethany - I love watching you on the Housewives. I love to see what you have on, I love to learn what you are up to professionally, and I have loved seeing your love life's downs and ups culminating in happy, happy nuptuals.
In short, I really like you so I hope that you can hear this without dismissing what I have to say out of pocket.
If we were friends, I would get you to go with me for relaxation and revitalization with a massage or pedicure all over a skinny marguerita - lol. Then I would look for a way to tell you something that you don't want to hear but that is very, very important.
Let me start by reminding how relationships can turn on a dime. For instance, you and Kelly are now talking - comfortably!
What I really want to say to you is about Jill. And since I can't think of how to get to it except straight forward here goes. I would really love for you to stand in her shoes and try on what it was like for her to hear in a message from her friend, "you need to get a hobby."
In all the clips when this has come up, you have defended yourself by minimizing the whole thing. But think about it. Minimizing it only exacerbates the hurt Jill feels. It would anyone's. What I would love to see you do is to think about how it would feel if you two traded places - you hurt her feelings and, at least according to the TV you have not been able to acknowledge that even to yourself. And you have to accept that before you can make a heartfelt apology. It will do something for your own heart even if it does nothing to change your relationship.
I hope you will think about this - a concerned fan.
I think you are the most real person on the show, you're are the best, I worked in the music business and I know how people can be so fake. Stay true to who you are, and don't trust Kelly, you read her right in the beginning, she just is trying to be close because she can she your spotlight, but Jill is your friend and it's very simple but it seems so complicated, just talk, I did it with a friend who I loved like a sister, we didn't talk for a year, "much time wasted" when going through the same kind of situation I can tell you, it's worth humbling yourself for the friendship, you will find yourself in it! I wish you so much success and I think you are the best of the best!!! Keep it going but in the same breath I say Jill is a friend, a friendship does go both ways but the balance isn't always equal(and I think you know what I mean because you're brilliant!)
I was just wondering what type of detox you did. I heard you say it on tonight show and was interested. If you're willing to share. Thx!
I love you Bethenny and I am so thrilled for you and Jason. As far as Jill and Luann go, get rid of them they are not your friends. It is time that you take care of yourself and Jason. Let them go they are two nasty, nasty highschool drama queens.
What I love about you, is that you tell it like it is and I admire you for that. Be happy and enjoy your new life and success.
I will be buying Skinny Girl Margaritas when we get them here in Arizona.
I got to say that I love your attitude, you're my favorite housewife, congratulations on your baby! hope all goes well! and looking forward for more drama...
sweetie - a very good friend once said to me " don't just do something - sit there" those words have helped me so much in my life and I pass that along to you! much joy D
I love you by the way! The New York Housewives is my favorite version of the show mostly because of you. I am sad though that you and Jill are "done" because the antics and the back and forth between you always made me laugh to the point of almost wetting myself. I think your impressions are always hilarious. I agree with you about Luann, she is so fake and you were right to tell her so. Obviously no one really knows exactly what happened between you and Jill, but maybe consider that Jill was possibly egged on by Luann into thinking your message was something more than it was. I definitely think Luann was jealous of your bond with Jill and since she was feeling needy from her whole divorce thing she latched onto that rift and fed it to the max. Anyway hope you girls can find your way back to each other, but if you feel that you are better off without her then do what you gotta do. I'm a fan of you always!
Bethanny you are my favorite!!! I do wish you and Jill were still BFF's like the last show. However,it seems like your a genuine person so I don't know how anyone can get along with fake people. Of course I only watch the show so I only am going off of what I see, but I am never wrong about people. I wish you the best!!!
Betheny I was really shocked at the episode I watched when you were on your book tour and stood up and spoke in front of a group of women , and you were throwing the F bombs left and right , I just didn't think that was appropriate in that setting and I really respect you and all you have accomplished for yourself and the work you do but really was disappointed , and I hope you can learn to listen and stop and take a beathe and I am happy for you and Jason and your new baby and still love watching the housewifes but chill , life is to short .
Bethanny, They are all jealous of you because you're younger, hotter and a self made woman without help from a husband. I love that you stands up for yourself. My husband always joke about the first time we watch the show last year and you said you were a ballbuster. He thinks you are so hilarious. We love you..
Ms. Bethenny from the beginning of New York Housewives you've talked about people and now you want to tell like it is. Hitting the wall at 90, no wonder you're crazy. I hope that your relationship works out because if it doesn't you won't have one friend to lean on.
You rock! Stay true to you. It is hard to avoid the drama and I can imagine it is just like being in High School again. I would NOT want to do that over again ever!! You have always been on the same path towards your dreams and forget anyone else who cannot support you with happiness and love on your journey.
Bethenny i think youre spot on for almost everything that comes out of your mouth.. i think you read people phenomenally and i hate that it sometimes seems you might be the "pitbull" attacking the other housewives. you are by far the most realistic out of all the housewives with your hilarious and down to earth sense of humor, Jason is such a lucky guy to have such a successful woman like you. im 18 years old and watch the show RELIGIOUSLY, and since season 1 you have proved to be such a role model for me and i think other girls around the world!
it is really sad that you and jill are no longer friends. i once fell out with my best friend for 8 months but we really missed each other. we talked about our problem and worked them out. if you two are really friends, maybe you should workout it out and tell everyone else to go to hell and stop butting in. however, if this relationship wasn't real or is not worth fighting for, i guess it is what it is.
i wish you the best with your new husband and new baby!
I think Jason is right about surrounding yourself with people who want the best for you. Life is just too short to have people in your life who don't support you and want happiness for you! Quite frankly, I find your honesty very refreshing. You seem so very genuine which is not something I can say about any of the other housewives of NYC. I'm so thrilled for you in all the exciting things that have come your way. You deserve to have success and happiness!
Hi, Bethenny! You can never get rid of negativity if the negativity comes from within. I really like you. I just hope that you can learn to really self-assess and be big enough to make changes (e.g., pit bulling people) I think you're really funny but at times I cringe because I know there is a kinder, gentler way you can get your point across. ("I think we need space" - as opposed to - "Get a hobby.")
You're the W-O-M-A-N, Bethanny! They don't have anything on you in any way. Jealous felines. Keep doing you! And Jason is adorable. I hope he doesn't hurt you, you're a doll! I love strong, independent, successful, frank women who tell it like it is. Don't let them make you doubt yourself, you and Alex are the only sanes ones. Yes, Alex is unconventional, but unconventional is good because it means you're being true to yourself. Rock on, Bethanny.
Bethany, you are an inspiration and a breath of fresh air. The other women can say whatever they want about how you are "crazy" but they only make it obvious to everyone watching how they will go to great lengths to drive you to crazy town. Whatever point they feel they are trying to make is not what the audience sees. When the show first aired, Jill was one of my favorites and it is a sad to see the way she keeps everyone picking sides and has absolutely no loyalty.
I wonder if you and Kelly Cutrone might have anything in common? There are plenty of girls out there who need strong women as role models as our fathers have abandoned us in one form or another. You and Kelly are my two current role models and I thank you for participating in the show. It is obviously a sacrifice to do the show and will no doubt only make you stronger, not to mention all the other women you are affecting in a positive manner.
When times get rough TRUE friends not only listen and respond ~ they also try to understand. If someone doesn't make an effort to truly understand where you are coming from; they are not really interested in being your friend. If your friend is hurt by your actions they should tell you and trust that you care enough to make it right; not tell everyone and put you in a defensive position. I've never had respect for people who don’t have the balls to tell me when I've hurt them and especially the ones who may, years later, bring it up as ammunition in a non-related issue.
Keep putting yourself out there and being true to yourself. It certainly pays off, doesn't it? :) I wish I could be more eloquent but it's late and I really should be in bed. Cheers :) Jennifer
You act like it's too late to rectify things with Jill and it's not. You both are only human, and she truly loves you. That should not be thrown away. Jason will support whatever decision you make i'm sure, and I think Jill knows she made mistakes as far as your relationship goes. Why not give her a chance? Open your heart back up to her, you will be better for it.
you are really a true New Yorker. No one gets your ball breaking style. Be happy with you life and if others can't move on..all of you are alittle crazy anyway to me on this show...you make me laugh alot. good luck
I thought you gave LuAnn what she deserved. When emotions are involved it is hard to think about how we deliver a message. LuAnn's and Jill's friendship is based on cattiness and will not last. BTW I read your book and I LOVED it! You are an amazing woman!
Keep on doing you. Misery loves company and now that you have company (the handsome Jason) enjoy him and let the miserable be miserable. Love you girl and continue to speak your mind. Being phony is not cute so continue to keep it real at all times.I love it when you give it to them in the raw.
The situation between Jill and Bethenny is really breaking my heart. I have no idea where you two are now with everything, but it is so hard to watch this play out on TV. When someone mentions the others name, there are instant tears. They have both openly admitted that they miss and love each other. A good friend is very hard to find. Jill can't in all fairness end her friendship because Bethenny didn't call. she's getting her own life and company off the ground and she sent flowers to show that she's thinking of him. Has Jill called called Bethenny to say that she's so happy for her that she's found that right guy? The two couples should go out for dinner because i think the men will straighten it all out. it's obvious the girls still love each other.
Dear God Bethenny...please make up with Jill. You know she loves you.
PS....I'm going to blog this to her as well!
First, Congrats on your wedding this Sunday. I wish you and Jason all the love and happiness in the world. Enjoy your day and let NOTHING spoil it for you.
Okay, you are on FIRE this season. With the exception of you, Alex, and Ramona the rest of your cast has lost their mind. They all have become so hateful, petty, conniving, and just plain stupid. I have never seen a bunch of grown women act like them in my life. They all claim to be so classy yet they are constantly talking about each other, making stuff up, and acting like a bunch of fools. You are better off NOT being bothered with them. You have so many good things happening in your life now that the last thing you need is to get mixed up with the drama.
Stay away from them and their foolishness, enjoy your new husband, celebrate the arrival of your new baby and live a life of love.
Bethenny - you are still a favorite on the show. I, too, enjoyed your friendship with Jill and the current situation is unfortunate. But, Jill could have handled the situation more maturely by talking to you in person rather than around you and to anyone who would listen. Best advice I've ever received it keep on taking the high road.
Is Luann a Gemini? She seems to have two sets of rules.
Best wishes to you and the growing family.
Love you Bethenny!! Love getting your emails directly too!! Can't wait for your show!!! You and the McCord/Van Kempens are the only ones I can stomach at this point. When I saw that Alex was the only one at your shower, I was like, YES!! Great minds think alike. She is the only one I would have invited. lol. Can not wait for the little bambino.
