Whether Jill and Bethenny renew their friendship is up to them but I certainly hope so. When I watched the film, I noticed how emotional they were and how much they both hurt after the events of the past year. Bethenny went through both happy and sad life changing experiences and Jill wasn’t there for her. Jill went through Bobby’s illness without the support of Bethenny. Regardless of what happens in the future, I think both girls learned a valuable lesson about friendship and how you can’t take your girlfriends for granted.

I thought Ramona and Mario’s vow renewal ceremony was lovely and very touching. It was nice to be out with the girls celebrating the Singers' long and happy marriage.

My favorite moment from Season 3 was the CD release party and live performance of Money Can’t Buy You Class. I was living my dream that night. It truly was one of the best moments of my life. It was so great that the people I care about most could be there to share that moment with me.

When filming began, I was still hurting from my divorce and trying to adjust to all the additional responsibilities of running a household alone. As the season progressed, I found myself healing and looking forward to the future. I guess the main thing I learned about myself this season is that I believe in myself even when times are tough. By the end of the season, I was feeling more confident with each passing day and having Jacques in my life was the icing on my cake.
