Bethenny looks back on the emotionally draining vacation to St. John.

I can't imagine Kelly would have wanted to stay on the island given the circumstances. On the other hand, I'm not sure she realized what had transpired, so I probably shouldn't speculate on what she would or would have not done had she stayed.

I did mention to Ramona that I thought Jill might pull something like a surprise entrance. When she arrived, I thought to myself, "Why must Jill always manage to make herself the center of attention?" She never wanted to come on the trip. She was very negative about it from the beginning, but when life went on without her, she felt that she had to insert herself. Unfortunately none of us believed that her intentions were pure. It was such an incredibly stressful trip, and we just wanted a moment of peace. The whole ordeal was a nightmare. It really was emotionally draining, particularly with my being pregnant.

The bridal shower was a fun night. That was a really great group of girls and the way the trip should have been. We all like and respect each other, and a weight had been lifted. Had it been just us, this would have been an incredible, relaxing vacation.
