I Hate Jill Zarin I Love Bethenny!!! August 5, 2010
I’m really going to miss this show! I should have guessed that they would put together a lost footage episode, I don’t suppose a reunion is necessary but I could hope! I look forward to next week’s lost footage.
It was nice to see Ramona, no craziness just a friend visiting a friend who just had a baby, it was very sweet to see Ramona holding that beautiful little baby. Somehow I just couldn’t imagine Ramona with a little baby, seems that since we met her when she already had a teenager, and we really don’t see the motherly side of Ramona, it was sort of cute to see her holding Baby Bryn. They showed Bethenny opening a gift from Ramona but didn’t let us see what the gift was, dang it!!! “Relations” Ramona? Poor Mario, how long did you make the guy wait after you delivered Avery?
It was hysterical how Ramona stuttered and stammered when the subject of sex came up. What is it with this woman? Clearly she has sex, Sonja was right, Ramona is a prude when it comes to sex. Again,poor Mario. At least Gina, the baby nurse didn’t blink an eye at the subject! She seems like a fun lady! We all know that Bethenny doesn’t let people into her life too easily, so it says a lot about Gina that after such a short time, Bethenny is referring to her as family.
This episode was jam packed, once again we saw Bethenny’s shower, a business trip, a vacation, guest shots of both Ramona and Alex, I really think that Bravo has done an outstanding job putting this show together. I doubt any of the other housewives could have supported this kind of show. Bethenny described it as a reality sit-com and it really is! It is a one of a kind show that would be difficult to reproduce with any other reality star.
It was really awesome that Jason complimented his wife on her figure after giving birth, how did the conversation turn to what would happen if Jason ever strayed? Bethenny, using Bravo’s liberal verbiage policy tells us that if Jason ever cheated it better be the best pussy ever because he won’t have a dick left. Thanks Bethenny!
OK who the hell has a cake shipped from Los Angeles to New York City? It never ceases to amaze me when people have things that can be produced nearby, go far and wide to have something sent. If you can’t get an outstanding (tiny) cake in New York City, where can you get one?
It reminded me of the other day when I had a computer repaired and was told they were shipping it to Kentucky to be repaired. HUH? We’re in Chicago, the third largest city in the country and you’re shipping my little computer to Kentucky? Seriously? No one here can fix it?
Comeon Shawn, there are probably thousands of bakeries in New York City, there is nothing in Los Angeles that doesn’t exist in New York, that was over dramatic for no reason!
What is with this Max kid? I truly believe that he simply took this job to get a television gig, or maybe to pick up women? Why would he answer an ad for a personal assistant to Bethenny Frankel? I think we’ve found him to be as close to useless as you can get. I was, and still am, confused as to his title, Bethenny said he was an “Intern who did assistant duties”. So was he paid for the mess that he made? Luckily, Bethenny doesn’t have the stress of employing Max any longer, she and Max both confirmed his internship has ended. What on earth would make him think he was entitled to a massage in the first place, nevermind being ahead of some of Bethenny’s guests! What a shithead! I get the distinct impression that Bethenny is not all that impressed with him either and you’ll see what I mean if you read her tweets, listed below.
Bethenny took a lot of heat over the past week or so on her blog and on twitter for planning her own baby shower, she was called tacky and crude. Obviously what Bethenny did by planning her own shower was saving her mother in law and friends from the expense and stress. Additionally with someone who has the schedule that Bethenny does I don’t see any other way. Personally, I’d love to go to a baby shower that provided mani/pedi, facials and massages! I think people just look for reasons to criticize Bethenny.
There were also a few assholes in the Bravo Talk Bubble that were criticizing Bethenny. (why watch the show, yanno?) Anyway, you will see one tweet below that is an obvious response to the criticism of one of these morons, they had said snarked after Bethenny said on the show how difficult motherhood is, they made a remark about how hard it is to give the baby to the baby nurse every time she cries. Sheesh, everyone needs a break now and then and she was visiting with a friend.
I completely understand Bethenny’s feelings about leaving on a business trip. I am sure many of us working moms can understand exactly how she feels. Whether you’ve had to leave your child overnight or not, I’m sure you know the feeling of leaving your tiny baby for the first time. Still it made me sad for her. Bethenny is the kind of person that makes you want to take the pain away for her! I sobbed right along with her because the memories came flooding back.
Lists Bethenny, lists! I was taught from a young age when traveling, you must have a list! You will always forget something without that critical list.
I could relate to the crying thing to, moms know, it breaks your heart to see your child cry, no matter what age they are. Bethenny’s description was so dead on, especially in long car rides, kids are in their own little jail torture chambers with nowhere to go and no escape! LOL
I’m not familiar with the New York Hamptons experience. I have heard of Montauk but not sure if it is considered part of the Hamptons or not but it seems like a nice place to get away but did not feel at all like we’ve seen the NY Housewives when they visit the Hamptons. While we’ve heard Jill, Ramona and Alex talking about the Hamptons party scene and having to been seen at all the right restaurants, Jason and Bethenny’s vacation did not feel like that at all. Lucky staff to all be allowed to join the happy family on their trip. It looked like it was a nice relaxing trip.
Bethenny burned her book! Hysterical when Jason said he was eating chapter two on his burger! Now I understand why the release date was changed. It was originally December but was changed on Amazon.com to May, but I believe it is back to December now. Sometimes it is easier just to start from scratch than to go back and change everything when you have such major changes that happened in your life. That was still a very brave thing to do, particularly when her editor had spent hours going over the book and Bethenny spent countless days and hours stressing over getting it done by the wedding. It isn’t as simple as adding a final chapter that includes her wedding and baby, such a life altering change would most likely cause you to write everything from a new perspective, so I completely understand it.
The ending of this chapter of Bethenny’s life was sweet and it was so nice that she said such sweet words about each person at the table. It is clear to me that Bethenny struggles when she can’t snark or make jokes, it takes a lot for her to pull the emotion out and say those words. I get the feeling that she doesn’t do it often so kudos to her for ending her show with such heartfelt sentiments to people who mean so much to her. The look in her eyes when she spoke to her husband was very heartwarming!
Ok, this has been the sappiest blog I think I’ve ever written but I truly do think that Bethenny is a great person, I truly enjoyed every minute of her show and I hope that there will be a Season two.
Luckily for all of you, Bethenny’s tweets during the show were not nearly as sappy, here are some of them (as always the time line is from bottom to top)

A few other tidbits…After Bethenny Getting Married? Finale I popped onto Twitter for a minute to see what the crowds were saying about the show and I was greeted by this tweet:
TotallyToonces @LynnNChicago: dont know who u r but @dinamanzo said to say hi to you so “hi to you”…meow
I was a little shocked because truly, I do not know @TotallyToonces, I’ve never seen the name, I don’t follow her and she doesn’t follow me. Curious, I checked into what led to this tweet, here’s what I found:
TotallyToonces: @dinamanzo but you come off as a braggart…sorry but you do.
DinaManzo: TotallyToonces how sweet, it’s about raising awareness & inspiring people to give back. #simplemind
DinaManzo: @TotallyToonces no problem tell Lynn I said hi 😉
TotallyToonces: @dinamanzo who is Lynn? check who i follow and who follows me. no one named lynn
I don’t know where Totally Toonces has been all my life, she is hysterical and I wish I had been following her, we do have many of the same followers, but honestly, I’ve never seen her before. Clearly, she’s never seen me before either. Dina is getting a tad bit paranoid, it also shows she has quite a big head, if someone doesn’t like her, it must be my fault? Sorry to break it to you Dina, but LOTS of people don’t like you and I don’t influence people’s feelings about you!
I haven’t forgotten that the premier of the Real Housewives of DC were on tonight. I really sort of liked it, I think it is going to be a good combination of bitches and drama with some insight into DC, a city I am completely unfamiliar with. I guess we’ll have to wait and see. I will be blogging on it, probably tomorrow but in the meantime, I certainly cannot be accused of not allowing alternate opinions to my own, as we have a guest blogger with their thoughts on tonight’s show. Thank you to BethennyFans for the following blog, you can follow her on Twitter at @Bethennyfans:
The Real Housewives of DC: Blog
Hello fellow Bravo fans/viewers. Yesterday, August 5th at 10/9 Central EST Bravo’s The Real Housewives of DC aired after long months of taping.
I’m sure like myself, viewers were expecting more from these 5 ladies…Yes, even on the first episode. I’m sure you all are asking yourselves: Do I like The Real Housewives of DC? Answer: Well I can only answer for myself. I hate it. Then again, maybe it will get more interesting as the episodes go by, but so far I’m not a fan. Will I watch? Answer: Yes, because I have nothing better to do since there is no more Bethenny Getting Married?. Who is your favorite DC housewife? Answer: By far Mary Amons. End of conversation. I’m glad I got that little questionnaire out of the way.
Back to my blog. As I was saying, it seems like these housewives were picked out from…from dog shit! Except Mary of course ;). I feel like they try too hard. Did you guys watch The View Wednesday? Did you see Lynda’s face?! She looks like a plastic Barbie Doll! I mean what the eff? What happened? She looks much better this season than on The View. Just sayin’. My opinion. Don’t get me started about Micheale or however the heck you spell her name! She’s denying that she and Tareq(her husband) crashed the White House Dinner? I’m sorry, what’s it called now? Getting in without an invitation? Is that better than saying crashing Micheale?
I don’t watch The View often, so I don’t know all the hosts names except Whoopie, but the oldish looking lady with short reddish hair was asking Micheale to tell the White House story, and Micheale said ‘’BUY THE BOOK!’’ or something like that. What the eff? Nobody is going to waste money on ‘’ Cirque Du Salahi-Be careful who you trust.’’ Okay let me get off of Micheale for now, and move onto Stacie. Stacie seems nice. She’s a VERY successful real estate agent. Bravo. Her kids are so cute! I don’t know what to say about her husband just yet…He seems like he is involved in some drama this season too… We’ll see.
Stacie is on my maybe list. Boy oh boy, can I just skip Cat? I hate her! She’s annoying. She is trying too hard. I can’t understand her! That’s enough. Let’s move on. Mary, love her! She seems like she’s a calm cool and collective housewife. She seems the most normal out of the bunch, and she doesn’t try too hard. That’s all I have to say for now.
Thank you all for reading this blog. I had a pleasure writing it. If you want more from me you can follow me on Twitter @BethennyFans. I’d like to thank Lynn for allowing me to write this blog. Make sure to follow her @LynnNChicago!
Until Next Time…..
