Jill was childish with the speaker phone episode. Would her response have been the same had she been alone? Then I believe Ramona set Bethenny up. Ramona KNEW Jill wouldn't want to see B. but she set it up anyway. And LuAnne is acting like she's in high school. I have found a whole new respect for Alex through all this. She seems to be the ONLY ONE who sincerely wants to help B & Jill. Ramona is just fueling the fire. And to see Ramona & the "countess" listening in on the conversation between B & Jill allowing them no privacy is low-class. Bethenny, you will be fine. None of them deserve you. I'm glad you & Kelly have made amendes although I think Kelly is phony. My heart broke for Bethenny. She didn't need the sarcasm from Ramona on the bridge. Ramona, try to not have the wild eyes, you look insane. God bless Bethenny!!!

Bethenny doesn't play emotional games but is honest. I don't think the other girls are. They are unkind. Jill feels entitled to be in charge of everything. If she is done with Bethenny then be done don't start campaign like high school kids. Grow up. The other housewives are very influenced by Jill and act like they can't survive without her approval.

Jill is rotten, she plays games and has no shame about her katty-ness... Bethanny seems like the most honest, down to earth, tell it like it is person of the bunch.

I'd much rather hang with Bethanny than any of them.

Jill has some serious issues. The call wasn't to place blame on anyone, it was to straighten out a big mess, that I do believe LuAnn is fueling behind the scenes. Bethany tells it like it is. A good friend would accept that and them for who they are. Now you know Bethany....walk away, be happy in your marriage and soon to be your child. Your life is going to get very busy, very soon. You won't have time for awhile to play Jill and LuAnn's head games.

Yes Bethany should move on with her life. She has a lot going on for her. Bethany doesn't need the stress. Jill loves drama.

The behavior of these women toward one another is shameful. How on earth can they say and do the things they do? This is the reason why women have the reputations they do...so sad! Whatever happened to the Golden Rule? Whatever happened to personal integrity? In this whole exchange with Jill and Bethany, at least B. is willing to face the situation honestly and transparently. Jill's airing of this personal conversation on the speaker phone, is so jr. high. Come on ladies...tv or not, grow up!

jill has been pretty annoying this season. shes so catty. but at the end of the day bethenny depended on jill alot last season. she practically lived with jill and bobby for the whole summer in the hamptons and for bethenny to not even visit Bobby after his cancer, is just HURTFUL!!!

I'm all team Bethenny, that chick rocks, she's a straight shooter and she always looks so good, she reminds me of a french professor lady I had who always had it going on with her clothes, if I could spend a day with any of the housewives I would definitely pick Bethenny hands down no contest

Let's just say that I try to be completely objective. Betheny calls Jill and Jill sits there, puts her on speaker phone for a phone call that should have been completely private and between two women. Jill is a 40 some year old women with a teenage daughter and her daughter acts more mature than her mother. To be that nasty and that bitter. Betheny was completely right when she said you need a hobby, and to think the statement of you need a hobby sparked that much hatred from Jill.

Betheny honestly good riddens for you. Why would you want a friend that is capable of making your private conversation public.

Your better off without that negative force in your life. Jill did you a favor. Take it and run.

Bethany, you can do way better than the rest of these housewives, especially Jill & the Countess who feel the need to gang up on the other girls because no one likes them.

Team Bethenny! Jill get over it! Bethenny is trying to freakin' apologize to you and she wants to be your friend again! Friendship breakups are the worst!

Bethenney, a word of advice...good riddance to Jill. It is clear that you were only the flavor of the day and I agree with Ramona that you were the underdog of the moment. Since "getting your own hobbies" became a priority to you and making a life for yourself, Jill acted as though she was being left behind and acted with extreme immaturity. If what they show on television is accurate, Jill is not painted in a very flattering light. Oh, and the countess has a few manners to learn as well.

don't know why i add my comments they never post them anyway but i will continue to try I don't like jill is handling this silly argument. she should be more grown up in the argument and bethenny is trying to be the adult here. i think that bethenny handled herself very well. If i were bethenny i would move on she wanted to talk she apologized and nothing was resolved. Bethenny girrrrrrrrrrrrl move on because jill wants you to grovel and that is not you!

Bethenny is too smart to be friends with any of these other ladies, especially Jill. Get some new friends B.

Jill thinks she is better then anyone else. Also its the same OH!!!! The only part that Jill has to stand on is Beth should have been more concerned about Bobby. But then no one is perfect. It seems to me that Jill wasn't a real friend either!!!

Jill, here's some advice that my father gave me about 3 decades ago... You dont get the friends that you think you should have, you get the friends that you need. You and Bethenny have been such close friends even before the show and I am hoping that you are really happy for her and Jason and maybe the baby will bring both of you to a middle ground. I am not taking sides, but you also should look at Bethenny's childhood to see how things are for her as an adult!!!!!! Jill, you stated when you and Bethenny were at the track, that you didn't understand how her childhood was because that isn't what you know. Be the better friend, no matter what because people will come and go, but really true friends are going to be there when the other former friend needs you. Jill, you really need to step up to the plate,because you might regret what you and Bobby could be missing because your feelings were hurt. Bethenny, you also need to take stock in what has happened and also understand that Jill needed you at a time when things were hard for her and Bobby. Just admit that, as always happens when new men come around, girlfriends are put on the back burner for a time, just say you needed time to find out if Jason is your guy and you had to do that on your own before everyone else is introduced and also invested.

Ouch! This was tough to watch. I felt like Jill should have gone to a private area to talk to Bethany...not put her on speaker with Luanne sitting there listening, reacting, etc. That reminded me of mean girls in high school..Bethany can be cruel, but I felt sorry for her in this scene.

I think Jill is very small and petty. I am so surprised at her. I think she is caught up in thinking this is the Jill Zarin Show. Luanne is a snake and Jill will find out and deserves what she gets. Bethenny needs to stay away from Jill, she really is no friend. She just wants to feel superior over everyone. Jill is very catty and it is unbecoming!

I am definitely on Bethenny's side, she wanted to make up! Jill did not want to deal with the issues or make up!

Jill is a mean girl, it's her way or the highway. I don't know why anyone puts up with her.

I love both Bethenny and Jill. I think Bethenny genuinely wants to fix things. People make mistakes and Jill needs to realize that she isn't perfect either. I really hope they can go back to being as close as they were. Bethenny deserves to have good friends.

Am I the only one that sees that Jill's coldness toward Bethany is due to Bethany's behavior? Why does Bethany think that she can just kick people around with her mouth, and not push people away? Remember season one when Bethany threatened to stab her with a fork? She is completely inappropriate, then just acts like it's no big thing. "I'm a ball buster." No joke. It's not cute. It's not funny. Kelly said it all last season.

Bethenny has to work like a dog to afford New York. You are spoiled and don't have to work. Neither does LuAnn. YOU AND LUAN NEED TO GET A HOBBY. Bethenny didn't give Bobby cancer.

I think that Jill is totally blowing this out of proportion...really get a hobby..she is constantly whining and not saying Bethanny is an angel, but I really don't think "Get a Hobby" is the rudest thing that can be said to anyone. If she was a real friend she would sit down and talk about it to Beth, not everybody else

Team Bethany - Jill has blown the argument out of proportion and she has shown that she lacks the ability to forgive. Even after almost losing her husband to cancer, you would think she would understand what is trivial and what is not.

Jill it seems you had your mind made up and its over -- keeping it on speaker and omitting Luann's name is a lie....Omission is a being a sneak....

Jill, from first to worst huh? I have lost so much respect from you. Bethany, be strong, take care of you, your husband and the baby and stay involved with REAL friends. It seems Jill has a new hobby and it's telling the hobby story.

I think they both have some great points. The thing is none of us were there so we can only go by what each of them say. Bethenny should have been there for jill when her husband was ill thats a big deal you should forget about your drama for a second to just pay your respects to someone whom you love. What was up with Jill putting Bethenny on speaker though? Thats just rude and Jill said that she didn't lie about anything when actually she did about the whole "I'm doing so many things I need my hands" thing. I didn't know it took 10 hands to hold a telephone. Jill never commented back when Bethenny would say how Jill was running around in vegas when Bobby was ill she literally dodged the comment hmm...

Team JILL! All the way.

Bethenny did not call her to revive the friendship. Bethenny called to try to control her image. She admits that she never was friends with Jill (even when she was lounging at Jill's Hampton's house for a SUMMER).
