Across at Philippe Chow’s a courtship of Bethenny scene ensues, and while it’s no secret that Bethenny and I have busted heads many times, I can’t help but feel happy for her. Her sweet, little coy grin as Jason expresses his feelings, says a lot about how she feels. Her view on Alex and me was similar to my view on parenthood prior to becoming a parent. Before you ‘are’ something; a lover, a parent etc., you can’t quite get the concept and in the process express disdain for it and those who have it. But when you do fall in love, or become a parent; everything you’ve previously said is forgotten. Ah, the hypocrisy of life’s changes.
The following day at Ramona’s, she’s preparing for her lunch and if to cover her flub from last week she gets the molehill right this time, as she runs down who may or may not be attending. Over at LuAnn’s the dueling nature of these scenes comes into focus. Kelly wearing a lace T-shirt and not much else arrives seemingly with something that she must get off her chest. And so with platitudes like; authenticity, friendship, respect (for LuAnn only it seems), true and genuine, Kelly advises them that she has been chosen to be the Playboy 40th Anniversary Cover model and have a 10-page story about her. Now, do me a favor and take that link. The link itself is safe for work but the scream you utter when you see it might not be. Is Kelly really sitting there in September 2009 telling LuAnn and Jill that’s she’s been picked to be the January 1994 cover girl? Just how iconic is that! LuAnn chimes in to say that she might consider doing Playboy, which is interesting in light of what she had to say at the Season 1 reunion special. Now when she pulls out the cover of Playgirl she’d shot alls I can say is LOL.
