The Jill and Bethenny phone call revealed a lot of new things, mostly Bethenny claiming she didn’t know Bobby was so sick. If she did know, she should have called. No excuse not to, I don’t care where you are. She was traveling a lot for her book, and looking at Jill’s summer party blog, she claims she had no idea. Is it possible she really didn’t know? Where were the other Housewives? No one mentioned Bobby’s cancer to her? It’s starting to feel like Jill was keeping it a secret on purpose…
Jill sending the email to Kelly about not being friends with Bethenny was pretty out of control. If she was upset or insecure about Kelly’s friendship, it seems like she could have just called Kelly on the phone. Sending a email that started with “a little birdie told me…” is not even high school, it’s grade school.
I still think Ramona is a big train wreck, but at least we have a reason why: her dad abused her mom in front of her. When her husband Mario called her a “control freak,” it all made sense. Kids that grow up in crazy households and don’t have any control over their lives grow up to be control freaks. That’s exactly what happened to Ramona. Considering the other horrible things she could have grown up to become, I guess she did OK for herself. She does have a wonderful marriage to Mario, a beautiful daughter, and a great business. I think her friends know what she’s like and they take it for better or worse. PS—Am I the only one who thinks Ramona’s friend Joni looks just like Samantha’s lesbian lover Maria from Sex and the City?
Finally, a big “congrats” to Bethenny for tying the knot. I am SOOO happy she got married before she had her baby. It was the right thing to do.
