Teresa talks Housewives bridge battles, and discovers Bethenny's more than just a "joke machine."

on Apr 9, 2010

I thought it was very nice of Alex to try and fix Jill and Bethenny’s relationship too. We know that Jill had this horrible summer with Bobby, but now we find out that Bethenny was dealing with her own bad personal issues.(Bethenny flew all the way to LA to see her dying father and he refused to see her? I don’t care who you are, that has to hurt.) Jill knew about Bethenny’s problems with her dad. They talked about it in past seasons.

So, last week I wanted to know, why didn’t the other Housewives tell Bethenny how sick Bobby was? Is it because, as Bethenny claimed this week, Jill said at the time it was only "a procedure," when now she says he had his throat slit from ear to ear???

On her blog last week, Jill says she didn’t know all the bad stuff that Bethenny was going through at the time, that no one told her. Yet this week, we saw Alex tell Jill that Bethenny was really hurting and that it was about her dad. That wasn’t enough to shake Jill out of her own pain and reach out to her friend?

Of course, we don’t know what we don’t see on TV, but what we did see was Bethenny trying to reach out to Jill, and Jill refusing her. Again.

First Bethenny tried to talk to Jill at the fashion show, Jill turned her away. Bethenny called Jill. Jill wasn’t having it. Then Bethenny showed up to talk to Jill, and Jill again refused to mend anything. Three times? Jill has denied Bethenny three times? That’s a grudge of Biblical proportions...
