Thoughts and recaps to the season and NYC reunion.

Real_Housewives_NY_108_05.jpg

You called Alex out on a few things -- wanting to be a socialite, the state of her home, etc. Why do you think she disagrees with you and the other ladies on your impressions of her?

I believe Alex disagrees with us because they truly are very harsh words, difficult to hear, and she has to defend herself and her family as any woman would. I feel bad because it isn't that i judge someone by how much money they have or how nice their home is (I live in a one bedroom apartment in Manhattan, which is nice, but by no means a royal palace). I was just taken aback that their home was in disarray because of the image of luxury, lavishness and "society" that I felt they had portrayed.

I was addicted to the "Housewives of OC" and now your show! But the reason I started watching from the beginning was that I loved the dresses and the wonderful things they did with that first show. Most of this show has become about the "bickering" and "backstabbing" and I have to say, I don't care for it at all. Maybe this is giving you ratings but to me its not entertainment. The arguing and meanness - there is no class about that! Either replace all these women or tone it way down. These socialites are suppose to be showing us a wonderful side to living in New York - not the ugliness that women can be. I love Bethany's taste in wardrobe and wish her the best with her new baby. Please share more about their clothes! Thanks! A great fan in Houston, Texas!

I love Bethenny! She makes the whole show and she has everyone of those women pegged for what they are. Dump Kelly she is just a sad sack of s---. Luann should take lessons from her lovely daughter. Ramona needs to listen to her daughter and clean up her act. Simon needs to jump out of the closet and Mario, you're sweet but are you kidding with the tennis crap? Can't wait for next season!

Can I just say, you are FABULOUS!!! Im sure you hear it plenty, just not sure if it could ever be enough, I mean really!!! Thank goodness for you and Jill's relationship on the show.... I am a fellow east-coaster, from DC and raised by a New York mother. I live now in Honolulu, Hawaii and seeing the dynamic NEW YORK Housewives are such a comfort from home, being so far away. However, the relationship you share with Jill, most reminds me of some of my close and dearly loved girlfriends who still reside on the east coast so thank you for sharing yourselves with us and for doing it so well.

I love the show, however, i have never taken the time to comment on it and you simply inspired me to show you some love for always "keepin it real". Your humor couldn't be more perfect and your way with words can sometimes be like a reflection in the mirror for me. My man was even surprised with the skinny girl margarita... i am the only person of our friends whom has ever concocted something like that in our home... i am so happy for you in your success with actually doing something with it and taking it to the next level... YOU ROCK, furget about it!

Keep it up and stay true.

Much love, jazmine

Betheny, I wish you all the good luck with your endeavors. I have enjoyed the show so much. It is so interesting to see how other people live. You are so lucky to have a dear friend in Jill [love her, too]. And, as for Kelly, that girl has serious problems. I do not understand a word she says. She never makes any sense. I cannot wait to get your cookbook. Much luck to you, Carolyn, a Texas girl who would love to visit New York.

B - You go girl! I love that you aren't afraid to say your mind without shame. If only we all could do that. Why is being "Snarky" a bad thing? It is (and you are) hilarious!!! People are "Back-Stabbing" when they say something behind someone's back, act another way in front of your face, and deny ever saying anything at all. Calling everyone out on their craziness is just plain honesty. I am sad to see so many people on the show condemn your ball-busting.

Of course producers can edit shows however they wish, but I have never seen you say anything on the show that you wouldn't admit to having said - and, if it hurt someone's feelings, freely apologize for.

Don't ever change - you don't need to. :oÞ

I love them all except for Alex, who does seem to be pretentious as well as her husband. They're social climbers indeed!!!! Kell on the other hand is a psychoBIACH!!!!!!!!!

Bethany: I think your wonderful, you showed yourself as a strong independent woman who didn't need a man to make her complete. Bravo to that and what you have accomplished. Your a role model to the young woman of today and I wish you all the luck in the world. You and Jill were my absolute favorites!!! Regarding Kelly.........well I didn't like her from the moment she showed up on the show. I think she's extremely fake and a skank. She only embarrassed herself by what she said to you in that bar and come off looking like a complete idiot. As always, you came off with a lot of grace, I applaud you. And you are way above her.....in everything including looks!!! Stay real and best of luck to you and Cookie always.

Bethany, Thank you for showing class and personality. You and Jill are the best! I have to say most of the woman on there are too stuck up. Atleast that is how they are shown to be. And you are prettier than Kelly. Congrats on your success! Mary

How disappointing! Kathy Griffin your hero. What a shame. And I used to enjoy reading your blogs. You forced my hand. Team Kelly Rocks, and that hurt me more than it hurt you.

Bethenny!.. you are the sugar in all that NYC Housewives bullsh_t. Unlike those other pretentious plastic dames (not Jill, of course--she, like) you really do have class and you didn't have to marry an out-dated counter (like Luann once did)or a mare's ass (as in Mare-i-o like Ramona did)or even a photo generic (as in, Kelly never really had..she is so NOT good looking, or good standing, or even good sitting-- perhaps, she would be good leaving the show, huh?. I mean really, the producers must have put them all in just for sport [read: laughs] to make you and Jill look like the real women of NYC that you are. Keep on shining and reading those bimbos and flusies. You have made me start watching reality tv again.

Bethany,

I am a 54 years old sucessful woman from FL. This is the first time I have ever writen anything to a someone who comes through the magic box in my house (TV). But I just had to tell you, you were off the chain on the cat walk tonite. Girrl please, Kelly who? What the hell is it with her and her Ruffle shit.

I love the way you handle the "Bitches" on the show. Sometimes I think you should so stand-up.

I try to catch the show when I need a laugh, it's all about you. You make the show. Love the way you keep it real! You go Girl and get it all! MUCH LUCK!

Bethenny thank you so much for posting BethennyBakes web address on here. This is the first season that I have watched "Housewives of NYC" & didn't really know much about anyone until I started watching. What I do know now is you are my kind of girl... so down to earth, upfront & honest yet humorous & fun. Your recipes sound good also & look forward to trying those healthy cookies. I absolutely love you! You, Jill & 'Silex' are my favorite people on the show.
