Bethenny Frankel NY

Thoughts and recaps to the season and NYC reunion.

on Apr 23, 2008

Andy referred to you as the "Greek Chorus" of the show, and you mentioned you're a comedy snob.

I think Andy means that in between scenes, I weigh in and assess the situation. It's how I am in life. I am a passionate people watcher. Truth is stranger than fiction, and the things we all do on the show are far more entertaining than something scripted. When I say I'm a comedy snob, it means that I choose to associate with people who are either funny or get the joke. I don't take myself seriously, and I am totally willing to be the brunt of the joke as well. When I rambled like a moron to Alex and Simon then was filmed saying I wouldn't tell strangers my personal affairs I was laughing harder than anyone. I laughed out loud for much of this season, which is very rare in reality shows. You may be shocked, but it's rarely funny.

What (or who) makes you laugh the most?

On the show, without a doubt, Jill makes me laugh the most. I pray for one of her outlandish outfits so I can make a comment and see her laugh. Just today, we went to plant trees in Harlem for New York Restoration Project. Jill arrived in a satin Dolce and Gabbana blazer, a fur trimmed Prada coat, diamond earrings that I could fit around my ankle, a necklace with several stones -- need I continue? She told me she wanted to wear her team Jill t-shirt with skull and crossbones but Ally wouldn't let her. Jill is comedy and doesn't know it. She can take a joke and loves when I bust on her. We cry together. I can't wait for the next outfit and chance to tell her "less is more". Jill, please never change; I love you just the way you are. And I have to admit. You are Laverne. I'm Shirley.

I also die over Kathy Griffin. She's my hero.
