I'm a big fan of NY Housewives... the best of all the Housewives shows. In the first season I thought you were the anchor, the reasonable, rational and central person to the group. Now it appears that your own insecurities have taken over. You can love and be friends with these women, but please stop trying to control their lives. You, unfortunately did this with Bethany, now with LuAnn and Kelly. Clearly Ramona does not allow this, nor does Alex. Your intentions may be good but not everyone wants to be controlled, criticized and mother-henned to death. Listen a bit more to Bobby and stop dominating him and your friends. Think about it. I can recognize your behavior as I had, past tense, a friend like you and now we don't speak. Be kinder and more generous with your words... stop and think before you criticize. You can do better. I know it.
