Kristen: Not Everyone Is Out to Get Bethenny
Kristen Taekman talks about Bethenny's issues with trust, Sonja's Swami Priestess, and that mouth guard moment!
I would like to start out by saying how amazing Ramona’s friends are. I know that Bettheny was saying that she didn’t have much in common with any of these women. At first glance neither did I, but in the end we had Ramona in common and sometimes just having a mutual friend in common is enough.
I have gotten to know Ramona’s friends over the past few years and I must say they are all very lovely, giving, beautiful, supportive women. Many of them are very successful in their own right. During the event, many of them stood up and spoke about their friendships with Ramona. It was so wonderful to see how much all of them care for her and support her. It’s also heartwarming to see how strong of a support system Ramona has. And might I add that Ramona has never looked better!
Sonja and the Swami Priestess!? UGH! That Yogi friend of hers gets on my nerves!
Therapy with Bettheny was difficult to watch. At this point I have not really gotten to know her at all, so watching this made me and everyone else, I’m sure, just want to give her a hug. She has so much going on past, present, and wondering about her future. And now a kid is involved! She said that she needs help to navigate and she has a hard time trusting…I was thinking this was only applicable to men, but I guess it’s friends, too. Huh...good to know. It’s sad to me that she isn’t able to trust people. Not everyone is out to get her.
The boxing match was a blast! I was hesitant going into the whole thing. B.B. King’s is a New York City landmark. It's an amazing place to visit and sad that B.B. King himself just passed away. Carole reached out to Josh for www.eboost.com to sponsor her boxer, so I was excited to go and support Team Eboost! With Carole as a date, it’s always going to be a good time. Oh, and they had my fave beer, BLUE MOON, so I was in heaven.
At first it was hard to see these guys beating each other up, but after a few beers, ohhhhh I was into it! So, normally the front row is the place to be. Ahhhhh, but NOT at a boxing match! Ewwwww! I am such a germ freak. To make things worse, that mouth guard flew out of his mouth and his spit went everywhere on my leg, in my hand and in my beer!!! Yuck! Sooo gross!!! Thank goodness for my hand sanitizer!
After the match it was so funny how we all were ordering tea, veggies,etc. I had my drink limit at the match and I was ready for my hot tea. I know it makes me sound like a boring old lady BUT i have a hard enough time getting out of bed when I don’t drink! So, two drinks (tops three), then I need to switch off to hot tea! LOL! #oldlady
When Bettheny sits down at the restaurant to order a drink while waiting for her friend and the waiter asks her if she is familiar with the menu, her comment was hilarious! I was peeing my pants, she is so witty, I love it!
It’s nice to see that Lu and Bethany have a great friendship. After all these years they can pick up right where they left off!
Victoria’s art is so captivating! Sexy! Congrats to her, what a huge deal to be part of such a prominent show!
It was sweet to see Lu get emotional over her kids, they really are great children, and she is a wonderful mommy!
The whole clown thing was very bizarre and freaked me out! Art? Really?
Ramona and Dorinda’s work out. Not much to say about this other than how fantastic and strong and beautiful Ramona looks! She is so incredibly fit!
Sonja’s workout is hilarious, she is so busy! I met her trainer, who is very sweet! Did anyone else notice that Sonja was working out in her bathroom?
Carole and Adam seem so sweet together and really enjoying getting to know each other. It’s cute to see them chatting on the phone. It’s always so fun when it’s new, I think Carole was actually blushing! Carole, get back to work! Write that BOOK!
Bettheny meeting up with her stepdad after 25 years! Wow, this is some heavy and humbling stuff. I can’t even begin to imagine.
