Hot Pink Mess

NYC Housewife Bethenny Frankel explains why the OC wives were a hot pink mess this week.

Well, this episode began like a hot pink mess. The Gretchen/Ryan interaction in the bathroom was embarrassing and could happen to anyone single. Whether Gretchen is single or not is for the jury to decide. As for the many messages I received for liking Tamra the best, everyone can settle down. I'm not naming her the CEO of my company. In the land of entertaining reality television shows, simply put, she is good TV. Gretchen, however, is on her tail for most entertaining blonde housewife.

Jeana was a sympathetic character this week. Her lack of motivation, low-grade depression and inability to rally to workout is relatable and very common. Most people can relate to this. I am immediately going to send her a copy of my upcoming book Naturally Thin: Unleash Your Skinnygirl and Free Yourself From a Lifetime of Dieting. Jeana is beautiful and I am going to help her unleash her skinnygirl pronto.

The stay-at-home mom day was amusing and Tamra certainly brought her two flotation devices. Either her breasts were stung by bees or she did get some more pushing in those cushions. I didn't agree that Gretchen had boob envy. Gretchen's breasts look great. Gretchen's flotation devices were used for her dogs.

I felt terrible when Vicki fell at her party. I have definitely had my share of spills, and her son is grumpy and negative and should be as sweet and supportive as Donn. I really want to meet the person who has never had an embarrassing moment.

Now to Lynne. I've been harsh on her, but I have to give her a compliment. I think "cuff love" is a great name and I thought the cuffs were actually interesting, chic and some were very nice. I'm sure, however, that she hasn't registered the trademark (I've registered several and it is costly) and if she is serious about this business, she needs a good patent lawyer and to get on that ASAP. Congrats on Fred Segal. That business is no picnic. She should keep it small, at home and not get ahead of herself. It is a trendy item, and I learned all about the world of accessories with my former business Princess Pashmina (I was one of the largest importers nationwide.) Lynne, beware. That business is brutal and should not be treated as a part-time venture. Her daughter Alexa seems sweet and I like that she is exploring her creative side and pitching in.

How can I even take the conversation with Jeana that Gretchen had about the ex-wife. First, if Jeff is dying, it is understandable that others that he has loved and had children with would want to be around. Second, how to even prioritize the wives? Hugh Hefner would be a good one to call about this, and I won't be surprised if there will be a Gretchen playboy moment forthcoming. The man is dying, well he is actually no longer with us now, but I still have a difficult time taking anyone seriously who would marry a man with 5 ex-wives (much less a hot blonde who gets wasted and hits on friends' sons.)

It was funny that Vicki said she didn't like to mix personal and business. I know she meant that she wouldn't have a girlfriend work for her, but it was funny that she said it while on her computer and PDA on a girls' outing to Fred Segal. I respect her work ethic. I'm worse than she is. The vibrator comment that Gretchen made was simply distasteful. We all understand that she isn't "getting any," but some things are best left unsaid. She said it was like a graduation pen. Well, it seems that when she graduates from her current relationship, she'll have a diamond encrusted vibrator to show for it.

Jeana was the funniest part of the vibrator scenes. She had no clue what it was and her delivery was hilarious. Vicki was great when she came over to the toys and said, "we love those." They were totally charming and it didn't seem to lack taste. It's not always the content, but the delivery. It was ironic that Gretchen's scent was joie naivete which means naive joy. Everyone is wondering whether or not she is naive. We know she experiences joy, but I don't think she's naive.

As for the "I'm engaged to a dying rich man" lunch conversation, I see both sides. It is vulgar to shotgun marry someone to have rights to their money and I couldn't imagine that kind of a conversation in a hospital. If he is a good man, he has planned for Gretchen during this process. Jill Zarin would agree with Jeana and Vicki and say that you need to be prepared, and I understand that aspect too. Gretchen better have that conversation or be prepared to support herself.

As for Lynne having an issue with Vicki and Jeana's concern about money, well, they earned their money, so they are totally qualified to have this conversation. Gretchen and Lynne haven't made their own money, so they are in the weaker position. That is my unsolicited advice to every woman. Find a way to be self-sufficient and then the choices are all yours. In this conversation, Lynne is a bit of a nitwit for not understanding the reality of the situation. I doubt Ryan Barney can afford the lifestyle that Gretchen has become accustomed to.

Lizzie: Tamra Doesn't Fight Fair

Lizzie thinks Tamra's comments about her children were meant to deflect from her own problems.

Happy Labor Day!!! I am going to make this blog short and sweet. It’s a holiday and I am going to be spending the day with family in Newport wearing a Sun Kitten and a smile. I hope you all are having a great holiday weekend.

To be honest, the second half of the Reunion was hard to watch. I think it got too ugly. I am not going to insult any of your intelligence in explaining this episode. We all know that misery loves company, and "projection" is as easy to spot as a $2 dollar bill. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that everything miserable that comes out of Tamra's mouth is a direct reflection of what is going on in her life. In my opinion, children are off limits. It's quite apparent that Tamra does not fight fair and when all else fails she will throw your kids, marriage, and even your body under the bus in an attempt to hurt you. We filmed the reunion for over 10 hours and after listening to so much ugliness my heart just couldn't take it anymore.

I do not regret telling Shannon all the things that Tamra said about her. Everything I shared with Shannon was something that happened and was said on camera. I didn't take anything and create unnecessary drama. I would do it again in a heartbeat and I would think my friends would do the same for me. I simply did not know the truth about Tamra. Danielle told me all the things Tamra said about me. That is why after my birthday I was so hurt by her. It's hard for viewers to understand because these things weren't in the show. She could have called me and said she wasn't coming. I called her after sitting on the bus for over an hour. The next day she made fun of me to Danielle, in addition to asking plenty of questions looking for negative details regarding my party.

On that one-year free membership to Cut Fitness: Let's delve into this shall we? I was the one that contacted Tamra days after my party. She did not contact me to give me present. I had invited Tamra, Eddie, Danielle, Joe, Heather, and Terry to the Kentucky Derby and Tamra was the only person that had not sent in the RSVP. It was past the deadline and it was getting borderline rude at this point. Tamra, in fact, was making fun of the Kentucky Derby and the charity event that would be hosting us to Danielle. So, I reached out to Tamra regarding the Kentucky Derby and she texted me back saying, "I want to give you a free membership to CUT for your birthday." Tamra knows I am already a member to a sports club and that was the last I heard of this "free membership." I never received any kind of certificate or card for membership. I suppose she thought I would have the gall to show up and say, "I got a text message from Tamra for a free membership!" It's almost laughable. Needless to say, I don't go to her gym and she didn't attend the Kentucky Derby with me.

There is nothing else to say regarding the Shag, Marry, Kill game that I haven't already discussed in great length in any of my previous blogs. I said the word "marry" and that's that. Tamra even glared at me on the way out of the Valentine's Party and repeated it. "Marry you?" Tamra has said multiple times she couldn't even remember because she drank too much and there are even text messages where she says it too. Her story changes continually, like the words that come out both sides of her mouth.

During the Reunion, Tamra said many more hurtful things that you didn't see. She went on to talk about my son Preston and my marriage. We all remember the episode in the park where Preston hit me on the head with his elephant. He was asleep in the car and he had a mini temper tantrum. He was three -- it happens. I would assume most mothers have had it happen at some point. In addition, my husband and I got in a fight on my birthday. I feel awful about it, yet it made us closer. I just wanted what every woman wants -- to feel special because of her man. I am a big time believer in learning from your mistakes and that won't ever happen again. However none of those incidents had anything to do with Tamra. But on her quest to hurt everyone, she managed to drag in some irrelevant topics. I know it's all to deflect from what's going on in her life and to make someone else look bad. . .but it does hurt nonetheless. My babies and my marriage are my life so I guess her goal was to attack the things closest to my heart because she can't fight fair.

I hope you enjoyed this season and I hope you had a fabulous summer!!! The fall is my absolute favorite time of year, so I say bring on football and cooler weather.
