Bethenny picks her favorite Halloween costume and reveals what she thought of Kelly's fashionably late entrance.

on Apr 20, 20090

First of all, I need to apologize for that hideous purple outfit and necklace. I look horrendous and I never fail to mention when someone else makes a fashion faux pas. Disaster!

The other 364 days of the year are a costume and Halloween is the real me.

Jill's second Halloween costume was by far the best, simply because of how she wore it. She looked 8 years old, and I love when Jill is cute. Bobby was such a sport and I adored them. No one loves Halloween more than I do. The other 364 days of the year are a costume and Halloween is the real me.

I'm more comfortable on roller-skates than I am on feet. I spent most of my adolescence at a roller rink so I could stay out of my house. I know every word to every disco song as a result.

Bethenny, Thanks so much for your awareness of openness about your family history, most especially with being a new parent. Wounded people wound others and so your awareness and honesty about your history allows for you to "change your family tree" and do it differently with your daughter and husband, creating a high functioning, healthy family.

I think you would really enjoy a couple of books: 1) Relationships from Addiction to Authenticity-author Sally Bartolameolli (me) 2) The DRAMA of the GIFTED Child-author Alice Miller (this one will resonate with you I believe) 3) FAMILY-author John Bradshaw

I want encourage you to continue with your own healing and self-awareness. I teach and facilitate emotional healing and intelligence and our journey of maturity and recovery from trauma is exactly that....a journey.

Thanks for your courage and blessings to you,

Sally

If you are distress from slightly minor irritations or else illnesses or else you fair require to stay in the sphere of the best healthiness you can, I have more or less exciting in a row going on for Organic green tea with the aim of strength of character help you on your path to good health. Most populate with the aim of know of Organic green tea would know the basics - it is very useful on behalf of you. But how many know why it is understood to stay so fine on behalf of you. On behalf of folks of you with the aim of are amongst the many with the aim of don't know slightly details, I strength of character stay giving you more or less particularly attention-grabbing details with the aim of could shed more or less light on its understood goodness.

To arise with, green tea was found by the Chinese over 4,000 long years before. It is made from the steamed dried leaves of the plant works Camellia Sinensis. Drying the leaves this way allows the delicate antioxidants to wait in the sphere of their natural and preeminent state. And while chatting of antioxidants, the the largest part beneficial and prominent of these is EGCG or else in the sphere of methodical provisions Epigallocatechin Gallate. This antioxidant is 100 era other powerful than Vitamin C and is 25 era other of use than Vitamin E. This is lovely news on behalf of your skin!

Fats and sugars with the aim of we ingest are synthesized by the body into a difficulty called Triglyceride. Triglyceride is used up by the body the same as a source of energy. If too much sugars and fats are taken in the sphere of to the body however, near develops an surplus of triglyceride. This surplus is part to execute with what did you say? Causes chubbiness. This is not to say with the aim of EGCG can remove problems with burden on its own. However it can help hugely with labors in the sphere of dipping weight and weight loss diets. It can do in the sphere of this way the same as EGCG in point of fact stimulates the enzyme with the aim of dissolves triglyceride.

Folks electrons with the aim of can cause enormous destruction in the sphere of the body are accepted the same as complimentary Radicals. These electrons are unpaired. For the reason that they are deficient of a partner, they are in the sphere of a 'reactive' state. This income they move around the body searching on behalf of a healthy electron to brace up with. More or less of them are formed as you would expect in the sphere of our bodies, but not to an alarming degree. The largest part of the complimentary radicals in the sphere of the body are near by way of outer factors like UV radiation and toxins in the sphere of the tone. The same as they are unhealthy electrons, by attaching themselves to healthy brace, they can wound with the aim of healthy brace. They can cause destruction of the cells membranes, allowing bacteria's and diseases to enter and form surrounded by them.

While this persists, lone cell bearing in mind an extra, it gives way to bigger physically structures seemly unhealthy. More or less results of this may well stay cardiovascular diseases, lowered protection, scourge development and on the cards genetic material wound. Prevention of this kind of wound can stay helped with increasing intake of EGCG in the sphere of your diet. EGCG can in point of fact eradicate complimentary radicals. Therefore, the other EGCG you take in the sphere of the privileged take in the sphere of the privileged our protection strength of character stay in the sphere of guarding adjacent to illnesses and diseases of this kind.

On this hint, free green tea is not the solitary food with the aim of contains EGCG. It can stay sourced in the sphere of many other foods in the sphere of lofty doses besides. More or less of folks foods are carrots, broccoli, strawberries, spinach, grapes and red wine. In the sphere of adage with the aim of, Organic green tea does contain the highest percentage of EGCG antioxidants than all before mentioned foods. Organic green tea besides holds Vitamin B2, Riboflavin, which is involved in the sphere of the formation of red blood cells, production of antibodies and cell respiration and growth. This subsequently to EGCG and all the other antioxidants it holds, can help in the sphere of avoidance of several diseases, more or less I spoke of higher than, others include strokes, blood clots, skin scourge and many minor complaints and ailments - age acne, oral cavity ulcers, gum disease, heartburn, lack luster fur, weak nails, even your reminiscence and vigor.Lest go!Get lose weight tea Now!

Hi from Vancouver!

Bethenny, I was very moved by the vulnerability you revealed about your personal dreams. I don't recall any other cast member being nearly that open - it was most unexpected given the general tone of the program, and I want to acknowledge your courage for doing so!

I am very confident that you will achieve all your dreams. You WELL meet that one individual with whom you decide to create your family, and I know your family will be founded on authentic, substantial foundations.

I also really love your quick, smart wit and hope you will continue to voice that in some fashion, perhaps in a blog. Your take on things is a highlight of every episode!

Take good care, and enjoy the journey!!!!

Cheers, Susan

Bethany- I thought the roller girl was a great costume. Did anyone notice that at Kelly's Halloween party that the people there weren't even social lites? It looked like to me that she just invited randoms. And how rude of her to stop at another party before she hit her own. Is that because she knew her party was going to be a bust!!!! All I know is Bethany & Jill you guys make great housewives so stay on the show. You both are my favorite!

Bethany! You are one of my favorites on the show. Your humor is similar to my own, and I understand where it is coming from. I think you are the "realest" one on the show, but you're not really a housewife, yet. I believe you will find true love and when it happens, it will make Simon and Alex's romance look like puppy love. Bless you and good luck living your American dream.

First I just want you to know that the only reason I watch Real Housewives of NYC is because of you and Jill. You are both amazing woman and I admire both of you. Second, I am an executive chef with a catering company in Westport, Connecticut and would love to serve some of your "Skinny Girl" anything to our clients. Do you have a cook book yet or a web site with your catering? Westport loves you!

Bethenny- I absolutely love watching the show. You are by far my favorite to watch. I can't stop laughing when you do your "Jill Zarin" impersonations. Also- you showed a lot of class handling the Kelly situation. Good for you! You rock and don't ever let her or anyone else tell you different. I'm sure there are a million men lining up to date you, so keep your standards high until the right one comes around. Good luck with everything and keep on rockin'!

Bethanny, Just love the show. Listen, best advise for you on dating, let it happen when it happens. Relax and you will be surprised. Now, when does your book come out? And how do you keep such a great figure? Need help, please share your eating habits and recipes. Oh, as for Kelley, you do not need a person like that in your life, she should not even be on the show. the way she treats people is sickening. Good luck and God Bless.

OK ,I'm confused ! So no more "Housewives of New York"? WAS that the end of the show and Bethanny and all those crazy housewives?I was enjoying this show. I like your character because you showed alot of class and style.I admired your way of handling "Kelly".I would have let her have it!!!! All she did is want everyone to feel sorry for her.All she did was twist your words and walk with the poor me attitude. But you showed maturity with grace.As a new veiwer to Bravo,is that it with the SHOW ???? Also Jill was also my favorite, She is a strong,outspoken women that i like watching........................

Dear Bethenny, You seem like such an original, down to earth, genuine girl, and I and my girlfriends truly enjoy watching this show...so funny how being a fly on the wall is infinitely more interesting....I am taking my yoga teacher training this year, and I am continually amazed by the fit people out there I meet who do not eat enough healthy and satisfying foods. So, I am currently passing your book around the yoga studio...it is great, and congratulations on a great idea. Who knew...healthy eating ! Keep the witty repartee - I love to see the confused looks on the model's faces when you quip ! Keep in touch if you ever need yoga in your next book...Best,K

Bethenney Wow just read your blog for the 1st time, while waiting for the finale to start. If the previews didn't completely throw us for a loop/ I hope Jill did not really speak to you that way...If I am wrong, I will be back in an hour or so. I half way want to read what Kelly writes about you, but in case there is a counter on how many times the blogs are accessed, I dare not give her even 1 vote/count. I hate to read about you and Phillippe/ is your new man a secret? You know, I hope you know anyway that you belong to the world now, LOL~ best wishes in all your persuits. I am off to buy your book. Watching you from: Houston, Texas ckmchildadvocate@aol.com

From one Bethany, although not spelled the same, to another, you are one of a kind. Your humor and honesty bring so much to the show. I dont watch tv very often but this is one show I hate to miss. It takes a strong person to say it like it is, knowing you might piss the other housewives off, but you do it. I am a positive person and have been married fifteen years and have three great kids. the show is a great break. Kelly is kind of psycho. She freaks the hell out of me and im watching it on t.v. but I honestly think she could attack me via television. Stay positive and thanks for the entertainment.

Bethenny, I'm almost done with your book. It's great. I've gone from a size 10 to a size 8 in just weeks. Anyway... I just don't understand this think ou have with Kelly. Who cares if she doesn't talk to you! Why do you want her attention so bad?

Viewer

Bethenny - You are truly a saint!! You conducted yourself with class beyond compare during both encounters you had with Kelly and kudos to you for that!! She is one crazy whack-job!! My husband happened to be watching the show with me and even he agreed she seemed to be full of $@%! I love your funny, witty humor - it's refreshing to see a strong woman who knows what she wants but is disciplined enough to act like a lady when confronted. In my mind, Kelly's stupid comment about her "being up here and you being down there" is backwards - honey, you've got more class than she'll ever have. Anyone who can treat people like that is trashy not classy. TEAM BETHENNY ALL THE WAY!!!!

Hi Bethenny,

I just watched the episode of your first date with Phillipe. Looks good! I also realized that kelly's problem with you is that she is jealous of you. Plain and simple. You were great trying to smooth things over with her but it is impossible to communicate with somebody who is so jealous she can't even think. She did not make any sense, as usual.

Keep on your path, are doing great (from my point of view). Best wishes on all your projects. You are the most interesting of the team.

Bethenny, You are my fave - in fact I love you and Jill and Bobby, like Alex and Simon, LuAnn, Ramona - can't stand Kelly - same reasons as you. Your face is as gorgeous as your bod, Girl - What are you talking about ! But I get it, not going for guys who are too good looking. And also, that the nerdy ones who make it rich are insecure, and living the runaround high school years they never got to live before. It's a tough go, romance, in todays world, especially NY (or LA). I soooooo get you. Love your humor too. Hang in there, Skinny Girl. We love you (and Jill and Bobby, and Alex and Simon, LuAnn and Ramona - and little pets too.)

Bethany, I just had to write to tell you that as a high school teacher of many girls from messed-up-homes - You are a true role model and inspiration! If there were more people with your qualities; honest, intelligent, loyal, passionate, driven, caring, defender of the underdog, and beautiful (inside and out), the world would be a much, much better place!

Viewer

I want to start of by saying that I admire you as a person. You are a strong, confident, and beautiful woman. I think that you are sincere and care about other people. You have feelings just like everyone else, and don't like being treated like you are less than a human being. I completely understand your reaction to Kelly's incessant rambling about her superiority complex. She comes across as the type of person that steps over people to get where she wants to go in life. Those are the people that end up old and alone, wondering where they went wrong in life. I realize that the show forces interaction between the two of you, and that otherwise there would be no need for the two of you to ever cross paths again. The fact that this woman feels the need to belittle you on public television speaks volumes about her character. Keep on being the better person......it will pay off in the end! Don't change a thing about you!

Bethenny you're better then them all. You have more class in your little toe then they have in their entire body. Hang in there you're doing great. I love how calm you remain when the other women are talking out their asses. Kelly belongs in the mental hospital she can't remember one thing she says. I would have to punch her in the face I couldn't deal with her ignorance..(POW) right in the kisser...How did she even get on the show? I have never seen anything she has ever modeled "who is she"? A monkey can take her at bet the monkey would be more interesting then her. LOL You go girl you've got all the class..

You are by far the best housewife, probably because your not a housewife and you actually have something to contribute other then being someone's wife. How can you sit in front of Kelly and not rip her head off, its infuriating to watch, I want to throw things at the screen. How you were able to compose yourself and not wring her air head neck is beyond me. I appreciate your dark, dry, honest sense of humor. Bravo has filled it's time slots with humorless characters who can't get outside their own head to see that it's all just funny. Thank you for not being one of those characters.

Bethany,you're priceless. You remind me so much of my youngest daughter; direct & honest. Kelly is a real ditz. She should not return. I can't believe how much she misinterps your conversations and lies to everyone else about what's happened. Again, a real ditz and, I might add, a basket case. She needs therapy. Keep going in the direction you're going. Keep strong, don't let anybody put you down. You're the best Housewife ever from any of the shows. I love who you are. Good luck on your love life. I like that date you had with Phillipe. It was enjoyable to see you connect.

Bethenny, You rock. I have to say I don't think I could have handled the whole "Kelly" thing as well as you did. I don't have a word to describe what I think of her. I have many. Rude, Nasty, self absorbed, full of herself, etc etc. I almost have to turn off the show when she comes on. The worst part she thinks it's everyone else. I think she actually believes everything she says and does. Kelly thinks no one is smarter than Kelly. You and Jill are a class act. Ramona and Mario are perfect for each other. Ramona has that weird crazy look in her eyes. Mario. well again no one word!!! Luann Boring. Nice but boring. Are all these people clueless about what's really important in this world? My mother used to say. Health and Family and all the rest will follow. Take care Bethenny and keep doing what your doing and that is. Being true to yourself. If evr in Sonoma/Napa county come visit.

Bethany - you are far more grounded, real, intelligent, and sophisticated than any of the other ladies on the show (although Jill is a close second!) I love to watch you navigate the waters around Kelly, especially when she just goes off the deep end. (I can't even understand her most of the time!) I admire your ability to stay calm, cool and collected. It is clear why you have been so sucessful in your life and you clearly are an inspiration to viewers. Congrats and thanks!

Love that your so down to earth and tell things like it is. More people should be like you. Cute, funny, and sacrastic... the best. Your great for the show and I'm sure will make a guy a great wife one day. Stick to you values and just be you, everything else will come. As for Kelly, they need to kick this crazy self-center woman off the show. She needs to sit down and watch these shows and see for her self what a wack job she is. You were great in wanting to make nice, but this woman just isn't able to think outside her own world that she has created in her head. Cut your loss and just move on. Hopefully she won't be on the show next year! :)

Keep it up and best to you!

I think you're FANTASTIC.. I wish you were a girl that lived down the street with you because we'd have a great time talking over Skinnygirl margaritas! I read your book and it didn't change my life. WAIT! That's not to say it wasn't AMAZING. Because it is perfect and everything you say is 100% spot on. What it did for me was cement that I've been doing the right thing for the past 2 years. I was 260 pounds (5'6") In Jan 2007. I've dieted,killed myself at the gym, starved, abused diet pills, name it I've done it. It all came back to one day me saying "Screw it" and eating fried chicken or something. I know...gross. Anyways I started playing with food. I made substitutions, learned the difference between calories we need for fuel and what's just...unnecessary. I came up with great healthy versions of my favorite recipes (INCLUDING Fried chicken...Only it's baked now.) and I always called them my "Skinny Bitch version" of whatever I cooked. So when I heard the name of your brand it cracked me up! Plus...you're just so easy to relate to it's astounding. You and I have SO much in common. You have no idea. After learning about food... and I mean really learning about it... I lost a total of 102 lbs. I'm not hungry, deprived or freaking out for cravings. This is just the way I eat now. My recipes put the fast junk food varieties to SHAME and I can't wait to try all of yours!!!!!!! I think your book could be the "A-ha" moment for SO many women and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for writing it! And also, for being the most normal person on RHW!!!!

Bethenny, I think that you clever, funny, and absolutely wonderful! I cannot believe how strange Kelly acts at times. What is she on? You deserve better friends than her anyway. I felt that you really put her in her place at the first meeting you had with her. She could not even contend with you! She is not clever enough! "Oh really Bethenny...oh really...I will not indulge you". She could not even state her case clearly. She claims that you have no impact on her life, yet she calls a meeting with you and talks about the altercation without you throughout her date. That girl has got issues and I think that you have handled the whole situation in a very classy manner. I love you!

Bethanny, you are the BOMB! You have been the best thing about this show! You are gorgeous, intelligent, witty, and honest to a fault! Why waste your time with such a pretentious person as Kelly? She is completely shallow and devoid of any real emotion unless it is self-promoting. Your Madonna comment was right-on!! I hope that this show is not overly produced for ratings!

Good luck with your love life and continued success with your career - I hope to see you in the Big Apple soon!!
