Taking the Plunge

Bethenny talks skinny dipping, hunting iguanas, decorating the baby's nursery, and concerns about motherhood.

By Bethenny Frankel


I have to reach out and really thank you for all for watching and embracing BGM. I really opened up my life to you, and I'm so thrilled about the success of the show. I truly appreciate all of your constant support which is really why I work so hard.

I chose st. Bart for our honeymoon because it is such a picturesque place that is Europe meets the Caribbean. There are incredible private beaches, amazing restaurants and lots to do. It is way overpriced which you need to beware, and the natives can definitely be rude to Americans. Take that for what it's worth. Also, the clothes are beautiful, yet also too expensive. A lot of what I wore was from Old Navy. Visit to see where I bought everything else.

As for the skinny dipping scene - Jason and I are often carefree. We were so excited about how far we had come that it literally was a metaphor when we took the plunge.

I mean, seriously, is there anyone else in the world that would have to clean iguana poop in their honeymoon suite? We still cry laughing when we talk about it. Ironically, it was a honeymoon highlight. All I care about is laughter.

Jason wasn't offended when I was hesitant about taking his last name. Jason doesn't get easily offended or he wouldn't be married to me. He really understands me as a person, so he knows what an adjustment taking his name would be.



Jason and I had no clue whatsoever about what to do with a baby, but I suppose you just jump in. We're not the first nor the last. I was most nervous about my life never being the same again.

I didn't read any books on what to expect because I didn't want to imagine all of the ailments and issues. I just wanted to have an unbiased opinion and face challenges as they came. However, I'm the first one to ask or research something I need to answer or feel is a concern.

Knowing me, I'm sure that I'll write some book on babies or pregnancy or motherhood. I write about everything.

My advice on decorating the baby's nursery is to buy the essentials only. You will get blankets and stuffed animals and tons of clothes. Keep it simple because it gets cluttered. You all know stuff overwhelms me.

Jason loved the nude pregnancy pics. I'm so happy I endured feeling so uncomfortable for him.
