The Real Housewives of New York City – Requiem For A Poodle

RHONY S6 castBy Realhousewifeofaiken

LuAnn and Heather are shopping for swimsuits when Kristen just happens by.  She begins to tell them about her tea date with Ramona with a slightly more exaggerated, more dramatic version of the event.   The three talk some more about Ramona and list the nicknames she’s acquired, including, but certainly not limited to,  “Singer Stinger”, “Ramonacoaster,” pinot polar” and “crazy eyes.”  Heather Thomson, Kristen Taekman

Sonja calls LuAnn to invite her to a memorial service for her long-deceased dog, Milou, while Heather and Kristen,  hearing the conversation, don black hats in honor of the beloved pet.  Sonja is at her house, surrounded by her interns, both past and present, as well as Marley and a cloth covered box containing Milou’s ashes.  We then see a little video montage of Milou’s life before Marley almost spills his predecessor all over the carpet.

Kristen is auditioning for a workout video in front of the co-founders of JCORE.  She isn’t doing very well, proof that being thin doesn’t always mean being fit.  She’s hired anyway, thanks to a little help from her husband, Josh, who knows both of the company’s owners, Jay Cardiello and Bill Pymm.  While she goes through the routine, Josh is offering some color commentary, asking Jay when the exercises will get rid of his wife’s pooch.  If he was concerned about not having dinner on the table before, this probably isn’t going to guarantee it will be there in the future.  Kirsten asks Josh to leave, telling him that it feels just like the Spartan run, where he said he’d support her but then doesn’t really mean it.

Carole is holding interviews for an assistant at Ramona’s office because she doesn’t want any of the candidates to know where she lives yet.  Several of them arrive without resumes and one young man thinks his winning personality is enough to get him the job.  Nice try, kid, but that’s not how it works.  Ramona is in the room, adding her two cents because, well, because she’s Ramona.   She doesn’t like how unprepared the applicants are and doesn’t understand the kinds of questions Carole is asking.

Sonja Morgan

Sonja has invited a spiritual healer, Aleta St. James, to her house to help her with her grieving process and the turmoil in her life.   Aleta beats some sort of screen over Sonja’s prone body and then rings some Tibetan bells, telling Sonja that they will align her chakras.  Golden energy will enter through Sonja’s head and travel through her body, and I don’t know what any of that means.   Aleta had twins at the age of 57, so maybe she’s onto something.   Sonja says that she resents people who have taken advantage of her, including Ramona.  She then cries as Aleta holds the box conditioning Milou’s ashes, and says that she’ll never have the same pure, innocent experiences she had with that dog.  In her talking head, she says that she wasn’t only letting go of Milou, but also her ex-husband and best friend.

Aviva Drescher

Oh, look – Aviva’s back and she’s hosting a dinner at her new apartment just so that she inflict her father and all of his perversions upon us.   He doesn’t miss a beat.  After introducing his much, much, much younger girlfriend, Cody,  to Harry and Sonja, he tells everyone how they met.  It seems that he went to Cody’s salon to have some – and trust me, I’ve been working on this phrase all week – manscaping done and it was love at first sight.  At the first sight of what, I have no idea.  They’ve been together for two and a half years.   Don’t ask me how.   George wants Harry and Sonja to go to St. Tropez with them for a couples’ getaway which was just another excuse for him to expand on his raunchiness.  He explains how much better sex is when you have mirrored ceiling over your bed.  Reid then pipes in and says that he had mirrored ceiling when he was 16.   Maybe buttoned-up Reid does have a freak factor.  After ruining yet another dinner, George says that he has a gift for Cody and hands her a bag.  She pulls a box out and George tells her that it’s an engagement ring.  That’s his proposal.  Really, that was it.  She says yes and puts the ring on her finger, immediately eclipsing the diamond with her heavily bedazzled manicure.  Love is both grand and blind.

In case we hadn’t heard and seen enough from George, Aviva gives him a tour of the apartment where he makes some more comments about mirrors, sexual positions and, oh hell, I’ll just let you use your imaginations because I’m not going to sleep with these visuals burned into my brain.

Sonja, Ramona and Aviva meet up for dinner at a restaurant called Jamie’s.  Sonja wants to clear the air with Ramona, especially about the loss of her boyfriend, Ben.  She tells Ramona to basically butt our of her love-life if they are to remain friends.   With a pinky promise, Ramona swears that she will never interfere again.  Having reconciled, Sonja is now free to flirt with the restaurateur and find out where he lives.  Life goes on for the former Mrs. Morgan.

Sonja is putting the final touches on Milou’s memorial service and is trying to dictate her speech  into her phone.  The phone doesn’t understand what she’s saying and keeps asking her what wants.   Sonja and her phone get into an argument and are no longer on  speaking terms.    The group gathers by the river for the service and everyone is dressed in black, with some of the ladies wearing the hats they tried one earlier.  There’s champagne and a large portrait of Milou with a tennis ball in his mouth.  There’s even a program so that the mourners can keep track of the event.  Sonja delivers her eulogy, talking about how much her dog meant to her.  She says that he was the best thing to come into her life before her daughter.  Heather, in her talking head, understands that this has as much to do with Milou’s death as it does for everything in Sonja’s life. She’s not just moving on from her fur friend, but from her ex-husband and all of the things that have happened in her recent past.   Sonja’s friend, the Reverend Robin Cofer, says a prayer  and as the others wave good-bye. Sonja begins to toss Milou’s ashes into the river.  Carole whispers to Aviva that Milou was gay, something she says she  found out by reading animalfair.com.  Aviva says that this might inspire other dogs to come out as well.  The ashes don’t go exactly where they’re supposed to and a bit of Milou lands on the sidewalk.  No surprise there.  Milou was a New York City dog and New York City dogs often leave a little something of themselves behind on the sidewalk.

Adieu, Milou.

  1. Bringing this over from the chat page.
    George sucks the air out of a room. Disgusting. I had to go out by the pool and erase all images going through my brain after listening to him. Yuck.
    Poor Kristen. Her husband is just an asshole. She is trying to help support his new business by making the video. She was so upbeat and then Josh started putting her down and she looked so hurt. BTW. I don’t believe for one second Josh gets up with the kids in the morning. He gets up early but to go work out. His body did not get like it is without working out a few hours a day. So as far as I am concerned he can STFU.

    • Hey I am first? Powellypoo….where are you??????

    • Jules says:

      I will not watch any moment of George or Aviva. Sick people and not entertaining.

    • Powell says:

      Yes George is disgusting. And yes Josh can STFU. I didn’t see that part but can imagine it. He’s treated Kristen like crap since epi 1.

    • AMEN SISTA! George makes me wanna wash my eyes with bleach. And Josh just makes my tummy upset and gives me diarrhea. Kristen is trying hard, but I have a feeling she isn’t heard very well in her home.

    • Barb (Just Wondering In Jersey) says:

      I cosign your comments. I feel badly for Kristen. She needs to find a better man cuz this asshole needs to go. Just who the hell does he think he is?

      May George and his fiance live long lives somewhere far far away from TV cameras. Enough with this pig.

    • designernailsdiana says:

      Aww AZ looks like you’ve got ole Georgie-poo today. Be a dear and give his \/,\/ a quick touch up. Would hate to see his gold-digger…err I mean Financee oops I meant Fiancee get a gray hair stuck in her grill.
      I’m so glad I didn’t see this episode. I’ll be sure and switch channels when his tanned wrinkled face pops in Adiva’s door.
      I’m so naughty today,
      Di

  2. Ooops BIG THANK YOU TO EMPRESS FOR THE RECAP AND MTH/JEFF FOR POSTING. Off to the gym so I can never get close to looking like Kristen. HA!

  3. BB says:

    I wouldn’t trade my life for the “fabulous” (NOT) lives of any of these women. I don’t envy a one of them. Luann, Sonya and Carole are alone and seem to be searching for something (whether by choice or not it’s still kind of sad), Ramona and Kristin don’t seem to have very happy marriages, Heather is dealing with a sick child, and Aviva has a perv for a dad. It’s not worth watching their problems for a few minutes of fun they might have.

    • Powell says:

      Even though Hesther’s son is ill I think she’s the most upbeat.

    • I just feel bad for Kristin. Maybe her husband is just joking with her, but it comes as incredibly belittling & condescending.

      • mrs peabody says:

        I can’t stand Kristin but her husband is a 3rd class jerk. He treats her like all she is is preeeeeeetty with not a brain in her head. I again she’s not really smart (looks who her friends are – STFU Brandi), she’d be pretty if it wasn’t for that weird chin of her’s.

  4. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. Happy humppp day. 😃. Oh boy did we have a summertime storm last night. I like those storms where it rains hard and steady for an hour or so and then just stops. Not a fan of the lightning and crashing thunder though. It stopped before the nutty NY ladies. If I don’t see another international of Sonja’s it would be alright w/me. And disgusting George. I wonder if he and his fiancee got married. Poor thing.
    Well you all have a great day.

  5. Powell says:

    Lainey I hope LaineyMom is resting and doing well. 😌

  6. Lady Chatterley says:

    So, is Bravo testing the waters for fan support of Luann vs Adiva? I’ll take Luann, thanks.

  7. Eastbayca says:

    Incase you haven’t read or heard, Dr. Maya Angelou has passed on. May she rest in peace.

    • So very sad. I hope the gates of heaven were open wide to welcome her!

    • SoutheastVA says:

      I met Dr. Anjelou once in the Cahrlotte NC airport. I was so surprised to see her sitting across from me at the gate I said in a stunned voice Ms. Angelou. She looked at me (like a grandma would) and said “Good morning.” She was reminding me of my manners to greet a person first. She didn’t use a belittling tone but I got it. (Is it a southern thing?) I continued and said, “Good morning Dr. Angelou” I told her how inspirational her life and writing were to me and that I had bought a book of her poems for my best friend the previous Christmas. She was appreciative and sweet to me.

  8. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    Empress, you took a bullet for all those that didn’t watch!
    “I’ll just let you use your imagination because I’m not going to sleep with the visuals burned in my brain.” Isn’t that the truth! It was disgusting and so is Aviva for making no attempt whatsoever to shut him down. She has no shame and seemingly enjoys bringing this filth to the show. Let’s see what this does for the ratings….clearly, the audience for George is……
    George in a mirror. 😕

  9. T-Rex says:

    OY! Where to start first off Empress when you ask what Cody saw in GeorgeTheDespicableDouche, well she saw his WALLET, because that would be the ONLY reason anyone would become involved with this reprehensible beast.

  10. HuskerHuny says:

    I have to say that Carole interviewing potential assistants was quite funny even with Ramona inserting herself into the process. Asking one of them if they owned a gun and if they knew where to buy one. The looks on their faces were hysterical. Such a set up and staged scene, but I got a chuckle nonetheless.

    There is no entertainment value of watching Grey Gardens Sonja and slimy, greasy George. Just give me Heather and Carole. Their lives are full enough for the entire hour and show Ramona, Sonja and Aviva the door. Even though Luann is not as annoying this season, she has so much left over from previous seasons that I can’t make my way clear of it yet.

    You know what the best thing about RHNY is? I can turn it over and watch The Little Couple. Amazing people and beautiful children. Now that’s reality for me.

  11. T-Rex says:

    Oh and that Aleta whack-job, she has been trying to get her 15 minutes of fame for YEARS! She is the sister of Curtis Sliwa of the vigilante group Guardian Angels she tried to ride his coattails for years and now she is some new age fake-guru. Oh and to me it’s no great feat to have twins, via Invitro with donor eggs, loads of folks have done that, what is crazy to me is having children at that age, but I don’t have kids so what do I know. I hope they aren’t going to bring that whackadoo on in any other format other than to show that MsGreyGardensSlutSonja is as BSC as we have noticed, and her laziness in getting an actual job is now down to having some other whackjob wave her hands over her to justify the laziness.

    • OMG T-Rex! Curtis Sliwa’s sister – for some reason that doesn’t surprise me. The HWs do seem to find the nuttiest new-age stuff to follow. I was just having a convo with some friends about Shannon (from the OC) and her crystal dental implants as an example of how these fools and their money are soon parted.

    • mrs peabody says:

      I’m 62 have kids and grandchildren and know for a fact that there’s no way in he!! I’d have kids in my late 50’s, I’m not crazy.

  12. Buttercream says:

    Thank you Empress for the re-cap … why I don’t want to watch George .. he takes a beautiful intimate expression of love between a couple and perverts the act of fornication to such a degree it’s close to ugly to hear him speak …. in addition, who proposes to a woman at a post dinner gathering like that? George gives the face to the name “dirty old man” .. he’s a piranha on women, leering, lurching on women with no respect to personal space or content of conversation … disgusting new low for Bravo to believe this is what the viewers want to watch .. Hey Bravo producers, when you wonder why your shows are losing viewership, it’s these repulsive scenes with George and his daughter discussing sex and mirrors …bring back the fun! Watching and listening to George with PT was a revolting scene and bad editing on who ever is the brain child producer this season ..

    • Shiny says:

      Men on this show are not generally good guys: – Kristen’s husband is so passive aggressive I flinch every time he appears now, and George is demented and gross. Then we have the lengthening list of husbands and ex-husbands who cheated on various women – or like Aviva’s ex seem to sleep with everyone in sight. Weird subset of humanity on these shows.

  13. L.A. Chica says:

    A ghost from the past popping in to say Hi to everyone here! Hope you all had a great holiday weekend and condolences to those who’ve lost loved ones in service. Many thanks for the sacrifices made by your families, and hugs to you all.

    About the show: Now, can I say that Kristen’s husband Josh is a Class A douchebag? He may be great at work, he may be a fantastic friend, but if what we’ve seen of him on this show is representative of his general behavior toward his wife then he sucks as a husband. And those on the Bravo comments who are telling Kristen to worship him because he’s the breadwinner really piss me off. There is no excuse for the emotionally abusive way he treats her.

    Harrumph!

    As for George, all I can say is UGH.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Hey Chica!!! How you been?? Nice to see you pop in!

      • L.A. Chica says:

        Hi Jill! Thanks! It’s so good to see you here, too. I’ve been good but swamped.

        Yesterday I saw a friend whom I haven’t seen in over a year and when he asked how I was I said “I have many fingers in many dikes,” which made him burst out laughing. Note to self: choose words carefully when talking to a friend who’s gay. Words sometimes have different meanings to different people.

        After he caught his breath my friend said, “Well, that IS news!”

        😆

        How’ve *you* been? 🙂

        • Jan (TexasTart) says:

          So funny! Happy to hear from you Chica!!! 😀

        • Shiny says:

          Hilarious. I’ve say ” I’m juggling too many balls that are glass” , but even that once got the “balls?” and eyebrow lift…..

        • SoutheastVA says:

          Whenever someone makes a double intendre (sp?), I can’t help but think of Steve Carrell’s character Michael from The Office and I respond “That’s what she said.” Too funny.

    • Powell says:

      Chica How you doin, in my Wendy Williams voice. Great to see you. You’ve been missed. 😀

      • L.A. Chica says:

        Ha ha! Whenever I read the phrase “How you doin” I hear the voice of Joey from Friends. “How YOU doin?” 😉

      • L.A. Chica says:

        And thank you, I’ve missed you all and the fun that’s here. What’s new? What events have I missed?

    • chismosa™ says:

      That’s crazy ! They’re telling kristen to worship him ? OMG.
      It’s like Candice Cameron …. Gross.

      • L.A. Chica says:

        Thanks! 🙂

        • L.A. Chica says:

          Oops… Meant the thanks in reply to AZGirl.

          “Worship” is my word, perhaps an exaggeration, but basically they’re saying she should shut up and quit complaining about Josh’s [demeaning] comments and be grateful that he’s the breadwinner and provides her with her lifestyle.

          That she should accept cruel and disrespectful treatment by her husband because he provides an income is insulting to not only Kristen but all married women, whether they work in or outside the home. A person’s value in a relationship isn’t determined by how much money they bring into it, imnsho.

  14. catmom1 says:

    Thanks for another great blog Empress. I found myself wondering how George has never been arrested or sued for sexual harassment or assault. I couldn’t believe the scene when Kristen was running away from George at the dinner party saying he had just grabbed her breast. WTF???? He’s proposing and groping at the same party??? Makes me wonder (ok, I REALLY don’t want to know) if George and Cody aren’t into some kinky multiple partner relationship thing?

    Josh, oy vey. What an incredible bully. That’s the nicest thing I can say about him, because what I’m saying in my head is far less censored. Poor Kristen needs to run fast away from that narcissistic neanderthal. How embarrassing for her at the taping.

    I’ve noticed that whenever Ramona is with someone who has a relationship with a younger person, Ramona gets bent out of shape and acts out. Also, I looked up Mario’s mistress, and in her pictures she resembles Kristen. Not nearly as pretty as Kristen, but a similar “type” and around the same age.

    • kit9 says:

      Wah?!! When did that happen with Kristen? How’d I miss that?! God damn it, WHY are they putting up with it?! It really makes me angry. If someone gropes me, I’m picking up the phone and calling the freaking cops! Come on!

      • iceNfire says:

        It was on First Look for next week. I’d love to see George try that on Luann and have her slap him so hard he looses his balance.

  15. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    3 shows this fall…1-Celebrity Apprentice -2-Eddie and Leann’s show (she won’t be on it but they talk about her)…and 3- I guess BH…that petition didn’t work out I guess!!

        I recently read that the airing of Celebrity Apprentice has been delayed until Spring 2015.

        • T-Rex says:

          This would be correct, this won’t be on until the spring in 2015 it is NOT on the Fall schedule and the last few CA shows have been in the spring season.

          • chismosa™ says:

            What ??!!!
            I do not understand this AT ALL.

            Thanks ^^^^^^

            • T-Rex says:

              Chis-According to what I read this was supposed to have been shown this past summer, right after filming stopped, but there were “issues”. Now it’s being pushed back to next spring, in my opinion sounds like some charity stuff is not on the up and up with this and they are trying to get it all sorted out, or some sort of legal issues. Be interesting to see if it’s shown at all! I wouldn’t be surprised if they cancelled it completely.

              • chismosa™ says:

                Thanks TRex and good points. There may be some logistics for some reason to sort out. Weird !

    • T-Rex says:

      Well, this is could be just another of her making shite up tweets we know she tends to LIE and LIE a LOT! I don’t think they have fully established the Ho-Wives of BHills yet for the next filming segment. AND if I am reading between the very BIG lines that PrincessVPump is sending out, she AIN’T coming back if THESupremeLIARMoronSlutBagSTFUBrandi is going to be also filming also. She called THESupremeLIARMoronSlutBagSTFUBrandi the most TOXIC Ho-Wife and then she said she doesn’t want toxicity in her life going forward. Guess THESupremeLIARMoronSlutBagSTFUBrandi won’t be getting any free invites to the most happening restaurants in BHills either as ThePump, Sur and Villa Blanca have certainly rolled up the red carpet when it comes to that skankassHO!

  17. Powell says:

    Kristin was getting the job anyway so why the RHONY pretense of it all? Hmm. Maybe to plug their biZ & they didn’t even need a wife or gf to be cast to promote their biz. Well damn that was clever. 😌 👍

  18. Powell says:

    Who wants to bet we’ll here about Sonja’s ex again and again and again? If we do then that’ll be our proof that the shakras didn’t work. 🙂

  19. Powell says:

    Whew Empress. I held my breath hoping you wouldn’t type what George said. “Manscaping” will do just fine. 🙂

  20. Powell says:

    Empress when I saw the bedazzled manicure, LOL, I said to myself these Upper East Side ladies don’t know a thing about bedazzled nails. 🙂

  21. Powell says:

    Carole and Leg saying Milou was gay and hopefully it will encourage other dogs to come out as well was the funniest few lines of the epi. Leave it to Carole to get it started. 🙂

  22. shamrockblonde says:

    George is a horrid pig – it shocked me that at no time did Aviva attempt to shut him up – there is no chance at all that my Dad would ever have spoken like that anywhere, but most certainly not in my presence or the presence of my sister or brother – I am just not familiar with that type of relationship and to me it seems that it would severly damage the child that had to grow up around it – no excuses for Aviva, I know, but I am sure that it contributed in some way to her needy, cruel insane behavior – I did not care for the joking about the dog either – gay, not gay, why start making jokes? just let Sonja have her moment, let her say goodbye her way and stop trying to turn it into your glib moment – I did like the interview process, it was fun to watch, but seriously, what kind of questions were those that Carole was asking? has she ever interviewed anyone?

    and I do not like Ramona and Sonja being friendly with Aviva – I don’t get that – at all – as for Kristen and her husband – both of them need to grow up – and fast – Josh sounded like an idiot and Kristen should have handled it better than she did – I know – storyline, play for the cameras, but if you are going to do nothing but show the worst of yourself and that of your mate, then maybe you should not be on a reality show –

    I did not think I would say this, but I am liking Heather the most so far this season – and no, I do not want LuAnn back on the show – at all –

    • chismosa™ says:

      Shamrock I totally agree with you about Sonja and Ramona being friends with Aviva again. I don’t get it. I think they’re just treading carefully and no one else would film with her at that point.

  23. Still no blog from Kristen. Why do I suspect Josh is hovering over her while she is writing the blog and trying to justify his behavior. All the others are up. Sonja blog does not make sense to me. Maybe I should get drunk and then read it then it will be clear to me.

    • Jan (TexasTart) says:

      Maybe you can get together with Powell, she proclaimed yesterday to plan to watch HW episodes on the weekend, while she can drink. LOL at you two.

    • catmom1 says:

      I’d be willing to bet that Josh is telling Kristen it’s all her fault for making him look bad. He may not physically abuse her, but he appears to be an abusive douche all the same.

      Chismosa Lynn kept her head buried in the sand when it came to those daughters. I’m not surprised Alexa would do porn to earn money for plastic surgery. The last season they were on OC they weren’t paying rent on their rented house but Lynn had plastic surgery and when the ladies went on a trip Lynn bought a leather jacket that was $1000 and they were also behind on their rent. The Sheriff served I think Alexa eviction papers when her parents weren’t home. Lynn and Frank spent money but didn’t pay rent. Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree huh? Sad

      • T-Rex says:

        Powell, also the daughters were talking about having breast augmentation when they were still in their teens and I think one of the daughters did have some plastic surgery in having her nose “fixed”. As you pointed out their mom had extensive work done, boobs, lyposuction, face, etc. So the kids have grown up with their mother constantly getting “work” done and I know the father had botox as well, not sure but wouldn’t be surprised if he also had a nose job or eye lift done as well. The daughters are looking for quick, easy cash, just like their parents, who apparently from what I read, ran a lot of “get rich quick” businesses and the dad was basically a con artist. Not sure what could ever possess someone to do Porn, but I am sure they will regret this in the future. This new generation of kids have ZERO long term “lookout” towards the future, everything is NOW NOW NOW, and they don’t realize that all this crap they post on Facebook, the Twatter, Insta-Embarrasment(or instagram as it is officially called) is going to follow them FOREVER! Yep, they are going to be in their 80’s and some grandkid or greatgrandkid is going to be looking at PORN their granny did in her twenties, or some boobie shots they thought would be cute to post on Insta-Embarrassment.

    Hey everyone. I see Nancy Kelly was on the chat last night. Hey Nancy Kelly I don’t recognize your name. Welcome if your new to the family. 🙂
    I just saw that Ryan and Trista from the Bachelorette will be on Marriage Boot Camp Celebrity Edition. They’re the only Bachelorette marriage. Every time I see them on something I think how cute they are w/their 2 kids. I hope they make it for the long haul .

  29. Powell says:

    Was watching/listening to HLN’s coverage of Aaron Hernandez’s hearing in court today. All the charges against him and his lawyer is asking for bail. He’s his lawyer and that’s what he’s expected to do for his client but I was “is he serious? There’s no way he’s getting bail.” Such a waste of his gift.

    • T-Rex says:

      Powell, you all know my cousin is a lawyer, and yes even if the defendant is a mass murdering serial killer it’s the defense attorney’s obligation to ask for bail, remember that in the eyes of the court you are “supposed” to be innocent until proven guilty, she has pointed this out to me many times as I have said that same thing you have. I remember asking her this question when Jeffery Dahmer’s attorney asked for bail, I was like who in their right mind would ask for bail for this killer, and she said his attorney has to ask.

  30. Powell says:

    Did anyone watch the show Little Women or whatever it’s called either on Lifetime or WETV?

  31. chismosa™ says:

    Ooooh I hope so ….. Busy month for reality

  32. Hey Empress, funny, funny! Adeiu Milou, lol! And I know how this feels, “Sonja and her phone get into an argument and are no longer on speaking terms.” I missed a lot of the episode, unfortunately not enough because I saw George. And I saw the First Look….that old fart would be spitting out his dentures because I would kick his balls so hard they would dislodge them!!! I don’t care how old he, a creep, is a creep, is a creep… The whole situation is disgusting… I am going to have to start DVRing it so I can fast fwd through his scenes!!

    ‘I’m going to destroy you’: Bethenny Frankel recounts estranged husband’s words after she said she was ending their marriage

    The former ‘Real Housewives of New York City’ star and her estranged husband, Jason Hoppy, were in a Manhattan court Wednesday as they both seek custody of their 4-year-old daughter, Bryn.

    • PJ says:

      I always got the impression that Jason was a monster just from watching the show.

      • IKR? He completely lost me when he said something to the effect that “you are damaged” seriously??? who says that even if they know it is true….if your partner is damaged and they have shared with you this information and you share it and say it out loud in private discussions is bad enough but to do it on tv, looooooser!!!

        • MelTheHound says:

          The entire show was about her being’ damaged’. We didn’t need him to say it but I am glad somebody did..

          • PJ says:

            Sorry Mel the show wasn’t about that and he should not have said it.

            • MelTheHound says:

              Of course it was.. All her shrink sessions. The lost at sea boat ride.. Cobwebs on the penis.. Who says shit like that? Damaged. Still damaged.

              • BB says:

                You are absolutely right, MTH, and this is coming from a former total Bethenny fan.

              • PJ says:

                This does not make it right for her husband to say in public. It disgusts me that he did that because it is so unloving and unkind, I can’t even imagine my husband saying publicly the things Jason said about B. I think she needed therapy because of Jason.

                • MelTheHound says:

                  She was F’d up long before Jason came along, number one. Two, they weren’t in ‘public’ they were in a parking lot (as I remember it) by the car arguing about whether or not to board a running helicopter to leave for this therapy weekend or whatever it was. He didn’t want to go.. I will admit hes an ass but, so is she.

                  • PJ says:

                    It was being filmed, that makes it public. It’s not like he was unaware the cameras were there. Jason was altogether unsympathetic to B all the time and in my opinion acted like an idiot to her often. I couldn’t imagine being married to anyone like Jason or anyone who would condone his behavior.

                    • MelTheHound says:

                      It isn’t like they were sitting in a crowded restaurant either. She got what she wanted out of that show. (Executive Producer)

                    • PJ says:

                      She got what she wanted? I doubt she ever wanted an abusive husband. Just because you don’t like her is no reason to excuse his vile behavior. So sitting in a car and being taped is better than sitting in a restaurant and being taped, really?!

                    • MelTheHound says:

                      You’re the one who wants to nitpic the term Public. Standing in the middle of a parking lot AWAY from the camera crew vs sitting in a crowded restaurant… Yes, Really. It has shit to do with whether I like her or not

                    • PJ says:

                      I don’t want to nitpick the word public, that’s ridiculous. The fact is they were taping a show and he knew whatever he said would be made public. He was no novice to this stuff at that point and I think he knew exactly what he was doing.

            • Sus says:

              I don’t think he should have said it but her show was all about her being a damaged looney.

              She’s not interesting enough to have her own show without the crazy. The crazy is the only thing interesting about Bethenny.

              • PJ says:

                I agree completely. A husband should love and support his wife, what other people say is one thing but a husband should never say those things publicly. I think it was all part of a master plan on his part.

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            I agree with you Jeff, Bethenny was the one going around saying how she was raised by wolfs…how she has daddy issues and how her mommy was an abusive alcoholic.

            The fact that Jason summarized in it in a singular sentence as opposed to Bethenny’s constant rantings it’s the fault of Jason.

            Bethenny is a shrew…..she is Kate Gosselin with Fran Drescher’s voice

        • PJ says:

          I remember the therapist Bethenny was seeing saying to Jason that the things he did to B did not show love and I couldn’t have agreed more with that. To me this was always about $$$$omething be$ide$$$$$$ love on Jason’s part anyway, $$$$$$$$$$$$$. I still feel exactly the same and I cringe for little Brynn having a father like that, my opinion.

      • meneseela says:

        I use to think he was a great guy. I was really bugged by how Bethenny treated his parents.
        Now I think he is just as f*cked up as her. Hacking into her emails? Video taping her? Wearing his undies in front of photographers while she is working (with his dad also in his undies)!
        Demanding $10 million … I guess that how much Bryn is worth?

        • Cartwheels says:

          Jason never fooled me i saw through him since the get go, but I can see how Bethenny was so lonely and desperate to be loved that she overlooked the huge red flags that were around Jason.
          Jason had a plan and he carried through it beautifully. It almost worked to perfection, his only misfortune was that Bethenny finally realized who he was and what he was after and refused to settle by giving her half of her money.

          • chismosa™ says:

            Beth was dating a bunch of guys at the time she started dating Jason before becoming exclusive with him. She has great taste, look at the rapist she’s dating now. 👏👏
            Jason is so Machiavellian 👿

    • Sus says:

      I think they are both gross and disgusting. I can’t stand it when people can’t get it together for their kids. They don’t have to be married but they need to get along and share her. At this point Jill Zarin would be better parent to Bryn than these two. What pigs both of them are.

      I was on Jason’s side at first because I knew Bethenny couldn’t handle a relationship but now I’m on Bryn’s side and that’s it.

      • Sus says:

        I probably shouldn’t comment as we would be in court over who was going to take the kids.

        Isn’t that the one positive thing about divorce – you get a break when it’s the other parent’s turn?

        • meneseela says:

          Many un-couples do just fine making arrangements .. until a third party gets involved. Third parties can be parents, even ones from small towns in PA.

        • chismosa™ says:

          Good point…. 😉

        • PJ says:

          Who wants a break from their kids like that? I never would want that.

          • Sus says:

            I’m a terrible a person. I like time to myself and don’t think there’s anything wrong with not spending 24/7 with my kids. Good for them too for their independence.

      • chismosa™ says:

        I would feel as you but what if your estranged co-parent starts making outlandish requests and releasing things to the media as well as working hard to garner public sympathy (not that the judge cares about this or her tears on the stand, etc). She has had a platform for 2+ years as well as her social media, blogs, etc. ;
        she wanted Bryn on her talk show. She wanted to discuss the divorce proceedings on her show & in other talk shows to be “real” with her fans. LOL

        If the coparent fighting me was going beyond, I wouldn’t want to settle …. Id want to work to get the best for Bryn. No vegan meal for the tiny toddler, no limited amount of time with her only grandparents – as “trashy” as they may be. That would push me over the edge …..//jmho

        • PJ says:

          The fact is that Bryn will see her grandparents and will have visitation with both parents. Bethenny isn’t trying to stop this, and Jason had no problem with Bryn being on TV as long as he was on too. I think the only thing that pushed him over the edge is that the money train is pulling out of the station and leaving him behind.

          • chismosa™ says:

            He put the kibosh on her having the baby on her talk show.

            Pharma can take him back the jobs are plentiful & great now! Recession over …. (I have a few friends in pharma and it’s good $$$)

            • PJ says:

              He went on Ellen with the baby, so it was ok for him to have the baby on TV but not ok for B to have the baby on TV. As long as he was also on TV the baby was on TV. Just saying–what is his real issue protecting his daughter or making life difficult for his daughter’s mother? Yes he can make good money but still not the kind B makes. This is a big payday to him, my opinion. In the end B will land on her feet but if a forensic accountant is able to prove that he does indeed have an investor backing his divorce then all his claims are suspect.

              • chismosa™ says:

                Ok I’m trying to not respond all the time to let you have the last word – but Jason holding Bryn was a camera shot of him holding her – in the audience – and it happened like 1 or 2x during the trial 6 week in the summer. I’m talking post divorce.
                She wasn’t featured more than that during the 6 week so I’m betting a foot was put down by the horrible evil father.

                Ok – you can respond but don’t take any of my non responses below as acquiescence. Cool 🙂
                ✌️

  34. BB says:

    Someone please explain to me why Bethenny should have SOLE custody of Brynn. Jason is asking for shared custody. They are both acting like spoiled children, but no way do I think Bethenny should have sole custody. Poor Bryn.

    • meneseela says:

      It’s leverage to get him to settle.

      • BB says:

        For Bethenny I don’t think it’s about money. It’s about total control and not wanting to share her child, even with the child’s father.

        • chismosa™ says:

          She’s all about control. I’m surprised she doesn’t have a fear of flying.
          It’s unfamiliar territory the idea for her daughter to have an involved father or loving grandparents. “White trash” grandparents, as per her. Poor wolf baby Beth! 😩😩😩😂😂😂

          Agreed ^^^

    • Sus says:

      There is no reason.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Sole custody doesn’t mean Brynn will never see Jason or Bethenny again or that she won’t spend equal time with both of them. In NY state there are differnt types of custody and different terms for each type-the language that is being used in the press is not the language of NY state custody laws-I don’t know who is doing the reporting but they really do not seem to have a handle on the law and what sole custody, joint custody, sole physical custody, joint physical custody etc all mean. I think the press is trying to turn this into a bigger mess than it already is. I still think it all comes down to money.

    • Cartwheels says:

      Custody of a child has two instances, there is physical custody (time spend with each parent) and there is legal custody (power to make decisions as to what school, church, etc attend) , for what I read Bethenny and Jason have both requested to have primary physical custody which in the state of NY is a common practice , one of them has slightly more time with the child and is names primary custodial parent but in reality the time is split almost in half. That one is physical custody and either Jason or Bethenny both have requested it so they both are going to be very much part of Bryn’;s upbringing.

      Legal custody is what they are fussing about, that gives the power to both parents to make decisions that affect the child, school, daycare or nanny, religious affiliation, healthcare, etc. Most parents when the break up is somehow amicable decide to share this type of custody because they can agree on the major decisions, in this case the divorce is so contentious that it is not a far stretch to assume that Bethenny and Jason will not be able to agree on anything, Jason IMO has made this divorce very difficult and has gone the extra mile to aggravate her and make it impossible to co parent in an amicable way, but in any case every single decision will be a new opportunity for a major fight, every single and simple decision i.e after school activities, has the potential to end up in front of a judge due to their inability to agree on anything, so at this point of the divorce and given the circumstances I can understand why Bethenny has requested to have sole “legal” custody, it will avoid a nightmare of daily fights and 14 more years or visits to the judge for every single thing.

      Now sole legal custody doesn’t mean that Bethenny gets to do whatever she wants with the child, there can be stipulations in the arraignment. i.e she can’t move without the judge’s consent , but as far as the small decisions that we have to make on an every day basis I can see where she is coming from with wanting that kind of custody.

      I guess what bothers me is the willing manipulation of the truth by Jason, his lawyers and his friendly media (Radar) when they purposely mislead the readers into thinking that legal and physical custody are the same and use the terms as synonyms when they are not. .

      • WasLurking says:

        Thank you for explaining that.

      • iceNfire says:

        I keep flashing back to that scene where Jason is so proud of the way Bethenny shut down the Baptist Christening in the Trinidad church, or whatever it was…. Now all of the sudden he wants us to believe that B is incapable of doing whatever is in Bryn’s best interest.

        • WasLurking says:

          He makes me sick. Such a phoney bas*tard!

          • iceNfire says:

            LoL This is exactly what I was trying to say 😛

          • Cartwheels says:

            He is as phony as it comes, I remember their constant argument about Jason being a complete different person when the cameras were off, the real Jason is his one, the guy with no scruples who will hack her emails, listen to her private conversations, shove his parents into the apartment to make the situation more impossible, that jerk and asshole is the real Jason

      • ladebra says:

        Very enlightening Cartwheels. Thank you. 🙂

        • Cartwheels says:

          Jason and his legal team are using the press to their bast ability to turn this in a trial by public opinion so I do believe that Jason said the words “I will destroy you” if Bethenny didn’t agree to settle.
          Jason signed a prenup and ny is not a community state, in ny you don’t get to split half of marital assets, you get out of the marriage with what you brought to it which in Jason’s case is nothing, I have always said that Jason’s only chance to score a big chunk of money was to twist Bethenny’s arm to settle. I am glad she is not doing it.

          • PJ says:

            I’m glad she isn’t settling too. I believe this is a money grab on his part and he doesn’t care what damage he is doing. In my opinion It sounds to me like his father is in on the money grab plot and they were trying to get B out of the apartment to give Jason a better chance of getting it in the settlement.

          • floridagirl88 says:

            If the roles were reversed, everyone would be cheering Bethanny on for a money grab despite a prenup.

      • shamrockblonde says:

        that was a perfect explanation Cartwheels – thanks for explaining it – went through that with my daughter – not on such a large scale, but that was it exactly –

  35. BB says:

    What bothers me is that two smart adults can’t come to a reasonable decision in the best interest of their child. I’m on Brynn’s side.

    • chismosa™ says:

      I agree but if your opposite partner has the resources and is doing certain things -(monitoring Bryn’s type of food, etc) – I would not “settle”. Has Bethenny settled for anything that was not legally mandated ? I wonder.
      Can’t see her doing anything SHE doesn’t want or controls.

      • WasLurking says:

        Of course she’s going to monitor her food, she’s a health nut. WTF is Jason doing by feeding Bryn crap that is totally unhealthy just to be an as*hole? Yeah, he is such a caring dad……. bleh!

        • chismosa™ says:

          I don’t think she is eating crap 24/7, when with her evil snake of a father. An occasional sweet, I thought -?- is relatively ok for for a toddler (not just for the photo ops for the paps). I didn’t mean her entire diet. It’s debatable whether a small child should go vegan … So I can’t speak to that but it doesn’t sound great to me. ((I read a lot about that stuff, but I’m not a mother to humans))

          • BB says:

            Bethenny claims Bryn “chose” to be a vegetarian when she was what, one or two years old. I call complete BULL malarkey on that one.

            • chismosa™ says:

              LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

              Yeah that was fantastic. I remember.

              {Nothing against the vegan/vegetarian lifestyle – I wish I could do it}

            • Sus says:

              LOLOLOL!!! Toddlers these days!

              I can’t believe these morons are paying lawyers to talk about what a kid is going to eat.

              • chismosa™ says:

                It’s funny but if my husband was denying my tiny toddler animal protein during these most formative years- yeah id be arguing about it.
                (If he was to get same time with the child as I was)

                But yeah, laughable

        • PJ says:

          We weren’t vegetarians but I made all of my daughters food only fresh organic food so I guess I carefully monitored her food too, she never had any baby food or canned food. I don’t see that as a problem.

      • BB says:

        Oh, I agree with you there. Bethenny is a control freak and not used to not getting her way. I remember when Jason threw her the surprise birthday party. Even if it was against her wishes and she asked him not to, she could have been gracious about it and gone with the flow. I defended her then, but when I think back on it, she acted like a spoilt brat. It was just a few hours for goodness sakes.

        • VV™ says:

          Bethenny fully participated in the planing of her birthday party with Shawn Rabideau.

        • iceNfire says:

          She was pregnant with raging hormones. I understand this, I could tell you my own horror stories, but I’ll spare you the gory details 🙂

        • chismosa™ says:

          Wasn’t birthday party post – Bryn’s birth? I don’t think it was while she was pregnant. I thought it was the 2nd spinoff show.
          I could be wrong

    • meneseela says:

      They are both kooks. Bryn is more mature than both of them together.

    • VV™ says:

      Bethenny set the tone by asking for full custody.

  36. Exit4 says:

    I’m so glad Jill and cartwheels brought that up! People keep freaking out over the semantics-sole custody means Bryan lives with either Jason or bethenney full time and has visitation with the other parent. Weekends, holidays, summer vacation. Lots of people have that arrangement. (Like my BIL). Joint/shared is when the child lives with each parent for maybe one week at a time or 2 weeks (my cousin and his ex do that). Legal is who makes decisions and that can be sole or joint/shared. But joint legal custody is difficult to get if the parents can’t co-parent. I think there’s a belief that someone asking for sole custody is taking a child away from the other parent and they aren’t. IMHO sole custody is better, because the child has one home. Moving around all the time is disjointed. Just my opinion.

    The whole thing with Bethenny taking Brunson clothes and toys-she’s living with her mom, she should have her things! Get doubles. Is bethenney. Pain in the ass? Probably. But Jason did NOT build that business and could have easily gone to their old apt. Since she still owns it. He doesn’t deserve the house skinny girl built because he didn’t build it. He’s kind if a douche. 😉

    • Exit4 says:

      Auto correct was in rare form in that post! Brunson. Lol

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        You had auto correct working double time Exit!!
        You can tell that the press has idea how custody works in NY because the words they use do not apply to custody laws here.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Has NO idea (that’s not auto correct-that was all me!!)

          • Exit4 says:

            Thank God auto correct is now a second language! I miss you Jill!!! How was AC???

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              AC was a blast!! I didn’t win but we sure did have a great time! How’s things with you?

    • Cartwheels says:

      The funny part is that he makes a huge deal if the fact that she took the pots, pans, silverware and toys with her , are you kidding me? She is leaving a 5 million dollar apartment that her money bought and he is complaining about this petty nonsense? Go and buy another set, it is time to start buying anyway, when the judge checks their assets and is able to determine where the money came to pay the down payment of the apartment and Jason has to move out he will have to buy his own stuff anyway.
      Cheap asshole

      • BB says:

        But why do that? Because she needed them? Not likely.

      • PJ says:

        She probably paid for everything. I hope he ends up with nothing.

      • kit9 says:

        How do you know this? All these details? Is it actually coming from court records or tabloids?

        • PJ says:

          I don’t know if all the details repeated here are accurate or not but Bethenny did testify in court on details of her marriage. I’m sure you can find it online.

      • floridagirl88 says:

        I see it as an aggressive move by B. She could have been gracious and left stuff in the apartment where her daughter visits with her dad. B was just being vindictive. It certainly isn’t about the money for her.

        My feelings for her changed when I saw how she treated her in-laws and the way she made fun of Jason’s friends.

        An occasional hot dog or sweet won’t harm the child. Say they are at a state fair (something B would never be caught at) and she wants to try cotton candy. Should Jason be hauled into court for that? I don’t think he is feeding his child a steady diet of bad food, Is B going to monitor the child’s visits to her grandparents? And note that grandparents are Jason’s parents because B can’t get along with her mother. Pattern??

        With B’s anger and maliciousness, I am beginning to wish for a JillZ walk by….

    They filmed the MDLNY reunion today. I think Ryan, despite showing some semblance of a heart last week, is so full of envy and anger and some sort of anti-gay sentiment for Fred.
    Ryan was making gay jabs at Jeff Lewis too when they were both on that guess the price real estate show. Oh Ryan ….. Smh
    Protest too much – hmmm.

    And jim cutler on WWH. ⭐ 👄

  38. BB says:

    I see above where a few of you are explaining the custody laws of New York for me. Sorry, but I’m still confused as to the specifics of this particular case. So what is Bethenny asking for and what does it mean? What is Jason asking for and what does it mean? Is this really what they are asking for or is this a guess based on what’s been in the media which we all know, is not always accurate?

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      That was kind of my point too BB-I don’t know who is asking for what b/c the press isn’t using terms I’m used to hearing in NY (I have a divorced brother with 3 kids and a legally separated brother with 2-I know more NY state custody jargon than I ever really wanted to know) so I don’t know if they are guessing what’s going on or what. I think that in NY both parents usually ask for primary custody-but the press made it seem like Bethenny was doing something so unusually mean by doing that…maybe the press has no clue what’s going so they just make sh*t up? Who knows right??

    • BB says:

      Sorry if anyone answers my questions I may not be around to thank you. It’s past my bedtime, but I’ll check here in the am in case anyone wants to try to get though this thick skull of mine. I’m just not getting that this is all Jason’s fault and Bethenny is the poor little victim here. I think they are both very selfish people and Bryn is the loser in this because they will be fighting over every little thing about her until she’s an adult and maybe forever. How sad.

  39. meneseela says:

    One more thing about Jason. I’ve been suspicious of his motives since they separated.

    I find it odd (in this day and age) that he’s worm his ring for what 2 years? And he’s not dating (publically). Every man I have known who has been in the “same situation” were on the prowl within weeks. Kids or no kids.

    Makes me think this divorce is his JOB.

    • BB says:

      Are you telling me that if Jason had been on the prowl within weeks nobody would have had a problem with it? He would have been skewered by club Bethenny members. So what if he’s playing it straight until all this divorce stuff is settled. What’s wrong with that? I know a guy who is trying to get primary or full custody of his little girl because her mom is going from one man to another and not providing her a stable home life. They’ve been divorced for at least a year if not longer. As far as I know he hasn’t dated during that time because he doesn’t want that complication in his life with his little girl’s situation the way it is. Kids first. Relationships second. At least that’s how some people view it.

      • BB says:

        Now I am really going to sign off and GO TO SLEEP! Good night for real guys!

      • chismosa™ says:

        Naturally, I’m with you. He’d be endlessly dogged if he was with some woman first. And 1/a married one (Warren, her first guy) or 2/the guy now – alleged rapist. Imagine if Jason had dated girls with shoddy records or who were married or separating !!!

        Same as the whole – leave the apartment situation. Abandonment or whatever – the legal reason behind it.
        Mothers get first priority with their children, as the father he has to work doubly or tripley as hard to show he’s committed.

        • lurker says:

          Do you really believe that Jason hasn’t had ‘relations’ in 2 years?
          OMG…………………..LMAO

          • floridagirl88 says:

            If he is, at least he is discreet, unlike B.

          • chismosa™ says:

            He of course could have ! He is just not so open about it or letting it get out. That’s all I meant, sorry if not clear.

    • Cartwheels says:

      This divorce is definitely his job and he is working it. Realistically speaking it has the possibility of generating him an income that he could never even dream off with his regular job.

    • PJ says:

      I believe he wants to make B look bad and this is nothing more than a money grab on his part. My opinion is he is a big slime ball.

      • MelTheHound says:

        She’s done that all on her own… Like Mommy, like daughter.. I’m certain of that…

        • PJ says:

          Please.

        • Sus says:

          I agree. Bethenny didn’t need Jason to bring the crazy out. It was there long before she met him.

          I thought she was nuts with Jason I. She was channeling Glenn Close the bunny boiler when she confronted him on TV about moving in together. I think that was the first or second season of RHONY. She may be a brilliant business woman (see below) but she knows nothing about men or relationships with any one, male or female.

          I read her book Naturally Starving Yourself. She regularly eats under 1200 calories a day. There’s nothing brilliant about that. You can be thin and eat 1200+ calories a day. I honestly think part of her problem is that she is starving all the time She’d be a happier person if she ate 1200+ calories a day.

          I’m disgusted and sad that she’s putting her food issues on Vegan Baby Bryn. Gross!

          • kit9 says:

            I like Bethenny bu tthe vegan thing with her baby is bat chit to me. Bethenny isn’t even vegan.

            • PJ says:

              I think she said mostly vegan. I don’t know about it either, my husband was vegan for a long time but I don’t know about a child bring a vegan. I guess if she checked with her pediatrician and he said her daughter was getting proper nutrition.

  41. Cartwheels says:

    BB, just like you I went to bed but I found some information for you that might provide some clarification

    http://www.lawny.org/index.php/family-self-help-140/other-family-law-self-help-75/178-child-custody-and-visitation-rights-in-new-york

    What is joint custody?
    Joint custody means that both parents share responsibility for making decisions about the child. The court does not have to give joint custody. It can give custody to only one parent. The court usually will give custody to only one parent if it looks like the parents are not able to cooperate and work together. If parents have joint legal custody, they have to talk about and agree on important decisions such as the child’s medical care, education, or religion. Both parents have access to the child’s medical and school records. Everyday decisions such as the child’s bedtime or permission for field trips are handled by the parent that has physical custody.

    Does joint legal custody exist in New York?
    Both parents can have joint legal custody in New York. Lots of communication and cooperation are needed for joint custody. Unfortunatley, if two parents are getting divorced, they often are not cooperating. A court should only give joint legal custody if the parents can get along. It can be very difficult to change joint custody once you have agreed to it, so be sure that you and the other parent can talk peacefully about what is best for your child. Sometimes parents agree that the parent who does not have custody of the child has the right to be told about all major decisions about the child. If the parents disagree, however, the parent who has custody makes the final decision.

    If Bethenny is requesting primary physical custody (so is Jason), most likely if she gets it she will also get sole legal custody, they inability to communicate is evident and Jason knows this, his request for joint legal custody is IMO only a move to make him look good being that he knows for sure that if he is the one chosen to have primary physical custody he will also be awarded sole legal custody. Calculated move.

      in other words, the accusations were bs.

  42. ladebra says:

    Morning! I love a 4day week! All the information on NY custody law is very informative. Thank you! I’m a Bethany supporter. Yes, I think she needed the therapy, but I don’t think needing therapy prevents you from being a good parent. And, I don’t believe anything Jason is doing is about Bryn. I’m sure he cares for her. I’m also sure that everything he is doing is about money, and destroying Bethany. My opinion. Everyone has one.

    Enjoy Friday eve!

    • chismosa™ says:

      Hi Deb …..

      I’m LOVING comments online I’m reading about all this. Hysterical. And glad to find kindred spirits.
      Feels like Wednesday

    • ladebra says:

      One more thought, I also think that once the custody/divorce/money is semi-settled, Jason will come out with a tell all, salacious, scandalous book about Bethanny. The mother of his child.

      • PJ says:

        Yeah he’s a great guy.

      • floridagirl88 says:

        But so far, he has kept quiet, been discreet, remained steady. B is sort of putting her dating in his face with questionable men. Maybe Jason is uneasy with these men around his young daughter. I would be.

    • PJ says:

      I don’t believe Bethenny has really done anything to merit the dislike many have for her, with the exception of becoming successful that is. I believe that Jason is abusive and vengeful and sure he probably cares for his daughter but not enough to just settle with B for what he agreed to in the first place, which would leave him with a lot more that he already had when he married her–and would give his daughter peace. I think it’s called greed. A parent who engages in this type of behavior does not have their child’s best interests at heart in my opinion. As for therapy good for her for being honest with herself and getting the help she needs, that will only make her a better parent. The custody issue is normal and asking for full custody does not make Bethenny a control freak nor does it limit access to Jason’s parents or Jason. I think people are just criticizing B over something they don’t understand. The explanations up thread are very helpful.

      • BB says:

        Yes, the explanations about custody laws in New York have been very helpful to me and I thank those who shared their knowledge. It still hasn’t changed my opinion about the situation however. My criticism of Bethenny (and Jason for that matter) doesn’t come from my not understanding custody laws. It comes from my own personal observations of their actions and behavior. And in the end, it really doesn’t matter what we all think. It’s up to the courts to decide. I just think it’s a shame all this he said, she said, he did this, she did that is being played out in public and it’s both of their faults. Shame on them.

        • ladebra says:

          IKR? I always thought two adults could be adults when it came time to divorce. Why stay when you are miserable? Why want someone to stay when they are miserable? Why not just divorce, move on, learn from the experience, keep the good memories, let go of the bad memories, co-parent children you are both responsible for…. I used to think this was just so logical. Then I went through my divorce. No millions to divide, I didn’t ask for property, money, support, house, all I asked was to get out. No kids, no co-parenting. It wasn’t calm, there wasn’t anything adult about it. Sometimes divorce is just contentious.

          • chismosa™ says:

            Good points you two^^^. I firmly believe in my heart — that Jason is not someone who would want or have wanted to have this $hit play out so publicly. He didn’t want his child on the talk show or want to have Beth speak about this. She wanted to. SHE didn’t want to move quietly on it, clearly.
            Jmho
            He would have wanted to settle this quickly and as amicably as possible (with the ‘ice Princess’ as I’m seeing her described online) — but perhaps the legal steps she took first as well as her publicly stating how “grueling” and tough this whole entire thing is — you know the divorce SHE wanted — made him have to take a stance. He’d be a wimp if he didn’t and he’s a jerk if he does. Jmho

            All I know is I’m like BB, judging off the much observation I’ve made of them from the many times I’ve watched and rewatched their show and have them on DVD. I truly feel – jmho- Jason would not be so public to do all this if not for the various preemptive strikes by ice queen.
            Jmho

            I wish the best for Bryn and her future stepmom and dad and new family. She’ll be happy I’m sure of it. They’ll work to make sure of it, even Icey.
            Jmho

            • PJ says:

              I respectfully disagree, Jason was all about the publicity until he got his walking papers then suddenly he changed his mind. Bethenny has been trying to settle this quietly and Jason will have none of it. Jason wants his pound of flesh from Bethenny as well as a big old wheelbarrow full of money, large bills only thank you. Just my opinion.

          • PJ says:

            I agree, people do not always split amicably. In this case though I feel that Bethenny would have split amicably but Jason won’t allow it because he wants a large slice of the money pie, in my opinion that’s all this is about, or mostly what it’s about. I’m with B all the way I wouldn’t give him one cent more than he agreed to in the prenup. If he really has an investor that is covering his divorce expenses what does that say about him?

            • chismosa™ says:

              I wonder if Bethenny would agree to any terms that Bethenny herself didn’t come up with. Respectfully.
              When one disagrees with the ice queen one must be put down. Fight or flight. Never compromise. Lookout for #1. Respectfully of course. Classy gal, the woman of wolves.

              But please go ahead…. I don’t want to lengthen the threads by replying too much; so I may not reply to your likely reply.
              I was simply taking in & speaking to BB and LAD’s points. Peace ✌️☀️

              • PJ says:

                Ok. Interesting. Do you really think she should cave and give Jason more that he agreed to, I don’t. Plus whatever you think about Bethenny I feel exactly the same about Jason.

      • kit9 says:

        I still like her but she’s done plenty. Pretty much made me look at her differently. On her spin off, she was sometimes just awful. Horrible to her Jason’s parents and friends, insulting and ridiculing them. How do you know Jason is abusive? I was reading the NYPost piece and they were both doing and saying horrible things to each other. She’s bitching that he turned the tv up all the way? Oh, no! She had to actually turn off the volume without the remote? The horror! He said he’d ruin her? Well, she said he wouldn’t see his daughter. He didn’t flush the toilet? She threw water on him in bed.

  43. chismosa™ says:

    Just watched NY. I can’t believe Aviva’s father. And her brother – is that the alleged drug addict/dealer forget which –?

    I analyzed my photos of how they manipulated the apple holding scene with Aviva and without. So interesting !

    • Powell says:

      And what did your analysis determine about the Apple holding scene? Inquiring minds want to know. 🙂

      • chismosa™ says:

        I’m in shock how they really do spread out the women farther apart to account for the missing one. I thought they could only slip her in or out. Probably graphics 101 but to this English major it’s fascinating !

        I’ve also decided I like Carole’s hair color in the opening shot, apple holding – best of all. Wish she’d go to that color.
        Powell I’m annoyed no WW this week. Yuck

      • I never have thought that any of the HW opening group shots were actually “group” shots, I always figured they were individual shots that they photoshopped to get whatever arrangement they wanted….because you know they would be pissed if they took a group shot and they weren’t the middle one..ippho

        • chismosa™ says:

          That’s because you are artistic and crafty (in every sense of the word crafty 😉 haha)

          I know, it’s funny in the uneven #cast shot to see who gets middle.

  44. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. It’s a rainy morning. I hope you’re having better weather.

    Thks all LynnFam Legaleeze for explaining “custody” in the whole B & Jason mess. I feel sorry for Bryn. This to me when she’s 18 will turn out like Anderson Cooper’s mom Gloria Vanderbilt. Gloria was called in the media “Poor Little Gloria” because of the legal fighting with her mom and her aunt over her legal custody. Gloria ended up not being raised by her mom. And the one who she felt totally loved by was her baby nurse/nanny who she cared for until she died. Unfortunately I can see that happening in Bryn’s future because this fight her parents have going on is really nothing to do w/Bryn. It’s all about control and B & Jason want it totally and completely. From Bryn to the money to the apartment they both want it and don’t think the other deserves it. It’s too late to go back but from the beginning I said B should have lived in her apartment, Jason should have lived in his apartment, they should have remained BF & GF. It the relationship lasted it lasted, if not they’d go there separate ways in their personal lives and they’d raise Bryn together. They could have had legal docs drawn up about custody and I bet Jason would have gone along w/50/50 everything custody. There wouldn’t have been any fighting over money or an apartment.

    Happy Friday eve and have a great day. 🙂

    • Barb (Just Wondering In Jersey) says:

      But then there would not have been a TV show…

      • Powell says:

        It could have been “Bethenny Having a Baby?” 😉

        • chismosa™ says:

          Unfortunately in very long line of Bethenny’s loves and loves lost, this one she picked to be off her birth control with is a religious man, practicing, and old fashioned. Things I suppose she didn’t see when they were dating because I’m sure he hid them from her in his devilish way. Rme 🙄 🙈😩
          One could say she trapped him by getting pregnant. But he was probably never straight with her about who he was and what kind of man he was. That devil! What a shock to dim witted Bethenny that he would want to get married.
          ((Lay it on me))

          • HuskerHuny says:

            Say the word chismosa. I just want to pound my head against the wall when it comes to this situation. TEAM BRYN!

          • Powell says:

            I’m totally w/you Chismosa. LOL I get amazed at celebs that get pregnant w/that guy at that time. All the BFs Katie Holmes had how did she all of a sudden get pregnant by Tom Cruise? And Kim K & Kanye, Jessica Simpson & her fiancee, Bridget Monahan & Tom Brady, Jennifer Hudson & her fiancee, so many more. And the guys didn’t have any kids prior to these GFs. Some get married some don’t. Still waiting for Jessica to get married before she has another one & Jennifer Hs son is 5 & she’s still engaged.

            • chismosa™ says:

              Powell let me stop you right there — I’m on board with all the ones you mentioned except Xenu’s betrothed>>> tom cruise’s (alleged) baby mama. I could go on and on and on about them. I remember like it was last week about back when they got married & what was circulating about the tryouts for role of “his wife” and exactly how many years they had to be married for — and that’s exactly the precise time katie did in fact stay married to him.

              All the others I agree. Christina aguilera too. I mean it’s basically everyone in Hollywood 🙂

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Religious and old fashioned? Yet he slept with her…I get that you don’t like Bethenny and I don’t care (that sounds harsh but I really don’t care b/c I love you and I don’t love her) but I think Jason is not the good old fashioned boy he tried to portray himself to be on TV-now let me say I’m basing this on nothing that I actually know-it’s just a feeling I have about him.
            I don’t think Bethenny set out to trap him and I don’t think she used him as a sperm donor-I think she was getting old and thought getting married to the man she was having a baby with was her chance to be “normal”. She was stupid-she should never have gotten married to Jason-and he was stupid-he never should have married her either. Neither one got what they expected. Too bad. They need to both STFU and put aside their own bitter disappointment that life didn’t turn out exactly they way they wanted it to-shit happens!

            • HuskerHuny says:

              There’s the truth Jill – neither one should have married the other. Oil and water for sure. But all of us were swept away with the fact that maybe, just maybe, Bethenny could find the normal life that it seemed like she was craving; the one she never got to have when growing up. But, as it turns out, Bethenny didn’t want that life at all and Jason didn’t want to live his life on TV, on another coast, flying here and there. No one is really right or wrong; it just wasn’t meant to be. My disappointment is that I bought into the fairy tale and felt a bit deceived when Bethenny bailed so early. That’s on me though.

              • chismosa™ says:

                I’m with this viewpoint too I think.

              • Powell says:

                JNNTJ & Husker you say shut happens, neither should have married the other. Dr. Maya Angelou had a horrific childhood and young life and look it how her life changed and how she ended up living her life. B & Jason should thank their lucky stars.

            • Powell says:

              JNNTJ I watched a few minutes of Bs show Monday or Tuesday and they were discussing relationships,marriage and she said she knew there were problems from the beginning of her relationship(she didn’t say Jason but I assume it’s him) but just didn’t think anything of them and then when the relationship failed said she saw that in the beginning. So like you said she thought it was a chance to be “normal” kinda goes along those lines of her letting the problems that were visible from the beginning just slide to the side.

            • chismosa™ says:

              Yeah I know Jill – all my super catholic weekly church going friends are the first ones to have had premarital sex when we were younger…… It’s very hypocritical and a big problem I have with religion but you’re right.

              They do both need to stfu but my point is we don’t hear anything out of Jason’s mouth irl, now. (post- tv show, which again, she exec produced and let things be there that may have been taken out of context) I’ve watched the 3 seasons of Bethenny on rhony and then her talk show<<< sans Jason. We can see exactly how she is personality-wise. Jason's personality – we – or I'm – not at liberty to go on excerpt intuition since all we saw of him was exec produced by her and/or her bestie Andy. So he is, essentially, S-ingTFU for now.

              And it's all hearsay right ? I mean – Bethenny can claim he said this this and this, and he can say she said this, this and this — and we don't know…. Cra-cra

              Love ya 😘😘
              You and I are never getting divorced 😝

            • PJ says:

              I agree Jill they should not have gotten married, it was a major mistake. But I have a feeling about Jason based on what I saw on the show not just my gut. I feel he was manipulative and passive aggressive and decidedly unloving to Bethenny. If anyone trapped anyone in my opinion it was not Bethenny it was Jason. I think he liked the perks that came with Bethenny but then he was so jealous of her success he couldn’t handle it. I think B tried to make him happy but I’m not convinced he really wanted to be happy in that marriage. I never felt that marriage would last for very long.

    • PJ says:

      But they have legal docs–a prenup–and Jason is trying to get that throw out, right? I don’t see Jason cooperating on anything.

  45. Powell says:

    Lainey how’s LaineyMom doing?

  46. HuskerHuny says:

    I just came over to see what was up. Yesterday when I left there were only about 30 some responses and to my surprise, there were now over 200. What in the world happened between then and now? Oh yeah, the Bethenny/Jason mess. I’ve read the greater majority of what is posted above and can certainly see that there are different ‘teams’ for sure.

    Please put me on the Bryn team. But if I were to choose a side with Bryn’s best interest at heart, I’d have to go with Jason. He would give her the steady, consistent life. She would sleep in the same house, same bed every night, she could attend the same school and make friends, she would not be raised or left with nannies/assistants regularly or for big periods of time, she would have an extended family (grandparents) who worship her, a father who does not seek the spotlight (at least that’s what I believe) and would not live his life on TV or in the press, he would give her a foundation in his religion, basically, give her the things that money can’t buy. Consistency and stability.

    Having said that, it’s very sad that this is being played out in the court of public opinion and Lord knows, we all have one. But one thing we can all agree on is that there is only one loser right now, and that’s Bryn. Hoping for calmer minds to prevail here and that the best for Bryn will be done.

    • Powell says:

      I think you’re totally right about the consistency Bryn would get w/Jason. We know B likes to be at home but we also know she likes to globe trotte. Sighhhh. It’s so sad.

      • chismosa™ says:

        Husker — that’s why I vote for Jason – putting aside my disdain for Bethenny and just knowing she’s Bryn’s mom and of course a mom should be with her child.

        I feel that Bethenny has the psych disorder – is it histrionic personality? The one that needs to have constant drama around her at all times. Must.
        I’ve said it before and I still think > Beth wants the baby to herself- she wants to make up for the broken relationship she had with her mom but instead is doomed to repeat it with the same neuroses — getting hysterical, being judgemental, eating/food/Beauty/weight issues

        She wants to be in a cocoon with Bryn and knows men will come and go in her life. Bryn will be all she has and she’ll choke her to death with that suffocating love.
        Bryn in 11-13 years —-> whoa. Have the psychologist on speed dial. And not dr Amador !

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Ok Bethenny has issues-we know it-we saw it. She may do all those things to her daughter and totally screw her up but what about Jason? Maybe Brynn is his way of making up for his lost brother-Maybe Brynn is supposed to put all the happiness back into his parents life that left when his brother died-talk about being suffocated by love! . (I’m not saying any of this is true-I’m just speculating like everyone else).
          The things is-we all have issues-all of us. If I had to fight for my kids you people would probably be shocked by some of the things hat would be said about me-SHOCKED I tell ya! We really don’t know who is less damaged or less issue ridden-Bethenny might have been more in our face with her issues but I’m sure things will come out about Jason that will surprise us. Nobody is pure and clean in this mess-except that little girl. Fighting for her doesn’t make her less pure and clean-it just makes them dirty.

          • chismosa™ says:

            Yeah ash with you I’ll tete a tete — that’s what my point is— that I think the public may have a more true idea of the real Bethenny than we do of Jason. Based on pre-Jason and post Jason Beth on TV. 

            I feel we saw about 90% of how she really is. 
            And his parents and Jason – I’m sorry – Bryn being adored and loved with regards to the dead brother vs the CRA- mother of Bethenny’s and what that and her dad – the wolves – did to her? Yeah I’ll take door #1. 

            Just me. 
            Or I’m jealous of people who have grandparents to enjoy. :/

            But you’re right …. We don’t know. I’m just saying that if we had to choose I agree that Jason is who id pick. If ! 

            I hope it works to the advantage of baby Bryn. 
            Beth is damn lucky Bryn seems to have a lowkey non- mommy like personality. Yes kids change but I’m of the school your personality is made up by age 5. We see how Bryn is mostly like ….

            And I truly think Jason is only playing dirty because of the almost sex and the city – like breakup by post it manner of the divorce being brought to him and B’s manic first moves on the divorce. I feel he defended and responded and was not offensive– (playing offense). But that’s just me. I KNOW. (Melissa Gorga memories ……..misty water color) 

            I’m at 4% battery, a record so I’ll catch you later. 🙋

            Please FEEL FREE TO RESPOND. 😉

              While I agree that consistency is important for children, I don’t think it has so much to do with where they lay their head at night but more to do with relationship and parental presence.

              I’m not defending Bethenny in particular but I’ve watched wonderful, well adjusted and stable children grow up in environments where the parents (single and otherwise) traveled a lot and took their children with them wherever they went. They didn’t have nannies so I don’t know if that made a huge difference (but I’m guessing so), but the experiences of traveling together bonded these children with their parents in a great way, and the exposure to a diversity of people outside a single neighborhood opened their minds and hearts to the larger world. Of course, the way in which the parents approach that larger world has a lot to do with it, too.

              • PJ says:

                I think Bethenny is a great mother and her traveling should not be considered in the custody arrangement. However I do think Jason’s bitterness and manipulations should be considered.

            • Powell says:

              Chismosa I didn’t grow up w/Grandparents either and always think people that do or have are very lucky.

          • Powell says:

            JNNTJ I’ve always thought that Jason was trying to make up for his brother’s death. Him visiting his parents every weekend. There’s nothing wrong w/that at all but the vibe he gave off and the way he communicated that he had to see them every weekend seemed like he was doing it for him and his brother. I don’t think his parents ever demanded or expected it. I think it was his decision, a promise he made when he moved from Pennsylvania to NY. He called B damaged, I think he was too. Bryn’s name alone was in homage to his brother Brian.

    • ladebra says:

      No kidding HH! It’s sorta been quiet, and then BOOM! lol.

      Just wait till the Juicy’s go to court and are sentenced. When is that anyway? June? July?

      • chismosa™ says:

        My birthday present : July 8 ….
        I’m counting down.

      • T-Rex says:

        July 8th, is the Juicy’s sentencing, and then we have ConvictFelonNida from the THUGS-OF-Atlanta-Ho-Wives that will also be sentenced on July 8th, going to be a busy for the Blogs that day it looks like

      • T-Rex says:

        Oh June 2nd is LyinJuicyJoe’s criminal case from the state of new Jersey. His lawyers will again try to postpone this case, using the Federal charges as an excuse, we will see

    • SoutheastVA says:

      I agree with you 100%.

  47. Powell says:

    Why is Wendy Williams regular show on repeats this week?

    • Barb (Just wondering in Jersey) says:

      She has so many vacations or career building ops that it’s disgusting. I stopped watching when I found reruns of the good wife on hallmark from 1to 5 weekdays.

    • chismosa™ says:

      Powell—- she’s one of I think, the few people who don’t end their seasons in may or June.
      She continues to her birthday – mid July.
      Then takes off and will be back in September. (Remember she’s going to eat the crow if Kanye and Kim are still together)

      So I think she took off around Memorial Day maybe with her son ? Is NJ off of school? Or maybe she just took some days off.
      She’ll be back Monday.
      I want to hear what she says about rob kardashian. And I’m glad what she said is what Beyoncé did – not go.

      • Powell says:

        Ok Chismosa. I didn’t think J & B would go. There’s always so much attention on them & J has his security so I would imagine they didn’t want any focus to be on them on K & Ks day. I’m waiting for Wendy to eat crow and it’d be so good if Kim sent it to her and Wendy said so and accepted it. That would be hilarious. I don’t think there will be a divorce at all or any time soon because Kim knows the doubters are talking and will stay married just to prove the doubters wrong. Hey if that’s what they want I hope they make it.

        • chismosa™ says:

          I think the Rachel Roy theory is IT. 
          I think Beyonce will always look down on the sex tape starlet and I love it. 

          I am SO with you on Kim just staying married to prove people wrong – very George costanza on that episode of Seinfeld where he said he’d marry a girl to prove someone was wrong about him ! 🙂

          I am totally of the belief that Wendy said that Kim is not truly happy. I really think that. She likes to be IN CONTROL in her relationships (how apropos we are talking about women with control issues today here LOL).

          Kanye is running things and I don’t think she likes it. Gut feeling. 

          Speaking of -I just got people mag – and it’s the blurry unofficial pic of them getting married on the cover –so so bad——using scraps people ! Let it go ! I hope it sells NO issues. (We get it in the mail- won’t count to sales, some awards with a credit card ….)

          • Powell says:

            I totally think Kanye is in control. Like Wendy says they don’t wear their best accessory. Their smile. Kim only started this not smiling since she’s been w/Kanye. Every time I see them I’m like “smile dammit. You’re supposed to be so happy”. IDK. He used to smile. If this is his new persona he needs to rethink it cuz it’s not working. I saw a pic on the internet and she looks beautiful. The Givenchy gown is gorgeous.

  48. Powell says:

    The rain in Louisiana and Mississippi is crazy. I don’t know how the citizens do it yr after yr. I pray they will be ok and no one loses their home.

    Sequel to my big far greek wedding is being made. I’m excited. Time for ouzo.
    Fingers crossed it’s well written

  51. Powell says:

    HLN will be discussing B & Jason’s divorce case between 2-4pm est.

  52. Powell says:

    HLN. They’re talking to Alex. She said B did say, “Where do you find yourself in 5 yrs as a single mom.” Alex said they are equally guilty. They’re both the same on knowing how to hurt each other. She’s surprised they didn’t ask for the proceedings to be sealed. B said in court that before the divorce Bryn was a vegetarian, now because Jason fed her hotdogs, hamburgers she’s not. B said in court Jason leaves stuff everywhere leaving the apartment a mess. Well that would go along w/knowing what pushes the other’s buttons cuz Jason knows B is a organization & clean freak. That’s sad. Any little thing to pick at each other.
    HLN showed the airport scene that MTH was talking about when they were getting on the helicopter.
    Alex doesn’t have contact with B.

    • Powell says:

      A viewer question to Alex was does she think B has changed for the good or the bad. Alex said B hasn’t changed. Bethenny is Bethenny. That’s what’s made her successful. When B said that was it w/Jason he didn’t believe her. He didn’t believe she would divorce him.
      One of the lawyers on said she can’t believe they didn’t ask for the proceedings to be sealed and it can only mean it’s for the celebrity. They should have had it sealed for their child.

    • PJ says:

      Alex doesn’t even know Jason really so how does she actually know they are both equally bad. I doubt Alex had any interaction in their marriage at all.

      • Powell says:

        Alex was still on the show when B was pregnant. And they became close during that time and during Bethenny is Getting Married they hung out a bit so I’m sure she has a view of their relationship.

        • MelTheHound says:

          Scary Island…”you’re a cook” B was 112 months pregnant but Alex didn’t know Jason..

        • PJ says:

          Alex and B were TV friends and not in touch at all at this point. Alex may have met Jason and spent a bit of time with him but as to really knowing him I doubt that very much. I like Alex but she will take whatever TV spot she can get, not to say I blame her but she is no expert on the Jason and Bethenny marriage.

          • MelTheHound says:

            But WE are?

            • PJ says:

              Not sure what you mean, but if you are saying we aren’t experts on the J & B marriage then I would have to agree with you. It doesn’t stop anyone from having an opinion though. Although most of us aren’t being paid to go on TV and give our opinions.

              • MelTheHound says:

                What I’m saying is most of us here are stating things, as fact, based on a grand total of less than say 40-60 hours actual heavily edited TV time With commercial time removed of course. That includes Alex who has actually lived the life and whether you (or anyone) want(s) to agree,does know Bethenny and likely Jason too. I’ve seen repeatedly (for example) people talk about what he’s Entitled to or not based on a prenup, that I have good money that says NONE of us has seen it or actually knows what it says.

                • BB says:

                  Yup. I know I haven’t see the prenup.

                • PJ says:

                  Meeting a person and actually knowing them are completely different things. I’m sure Alex has met him but I’m also pretty sure she doesn’t actually know him or any intimate details of their marriage. As for the prenup I have I read that there is one that he wants more money than the prenup says he gets.

                  • MelTheHound says:

                    As for the prenup I have I read that there is one that he wants more money than the prenup says he gets.
                    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
                    Doesn’t mean anything without seeing the actual document.

            • BB says:

              IKR? We are dissing those discussing Bethenny and Jason because they don’t know them, but we seem to know their every thought behind every move they make. So funny! WE DON’T KNOW NOTHING! All this is supposition and speculation. The only two people who know the real truth are Bethenny and Jason and I don’t trust either of them to be honest and forthcoming, even in court. Alex is expressing her own opinion just like we are, only she’s getting paid for it.

              • MelTheHound says:

                You said it better than I could have 😉

              • PJ says:

                That’s true and people are attacking Bethenny but no one here really knows her or knows for sure that any of the things they feel are true or not. But the same can be said for everyone that is commented on here.

                • BB says:

                  Bethenny has talked about her divorce publicly to anyone who would listen (until I think the judge issued a gag order if I remember correctly). Jason hasn’t. That why I think her and Jason’s attorneys didn’t try to prevent this custody from being open to the public and reporters. But I think both sides wanted to garner sympathy for their clients. Didn’t work for me because I don’t feel sorry for either one of them.

    • ladebra says:

      Thanks Powell! I was hoping someone would recap it. So, I wonder who is bankrolling the divorce for Jason? Maybe his mom and dad?

      • PJ says:

        If he has “an investor” that means he is really a low life, and only out for money.

      • Powell says:

        Jason probably paid his lawyer some money but he’s also probably banking on B to pay his fees when this is all said and done.

    • MelTheHound says:

      Powell, am I remembering it correctly?

      • Powell says:

        MTH you remembered it exactly. 😀 Boy oh boy do we fill our heads w/Bravo crap. 😀

        • MelTheHound says:

          Crap we really care about.. Who was it this supporting wife decided to tell her husband had cobwebs on his penis? Was that her staff or was it her gay BFFL she told as they were walking down a semi-busy, completely PUBLIC NYC Sidewalk? Yet, he’s the dick telling her she’s damaged, in a way bravo had to subtitle the conversation…

          • PJ says:

            Ok he’s a fabulous guy, just the best.

            • MelTheHound says:

              No, I think he’s a whiny mama’s boy but you’ve wasted a lot of time trying to convince me or anyone else that she’s any sort of innocent perfection in all of this.

              • PJ says:

                MTH I have my opinion just like anyone else that posts here. I don’t expect anyone to change their opinion because mine might be different than theirs but since this is a public forum I have as much right to say what I think as you do. I’m not going to be insulting to you by saying you have wasted a lot of time disagreeing with me and trying to convince people that your opinion is the correct one. People see things differently and obviously I do not see things the way you do and you don’t see things the way I do, that’s probably not going to change.

  53. Powell says:

    Are you freaking kidding me? Memorial Day 2012 a police officer did a roadside body search on two women he pulled over suspecting marijuana. He used the same gloves on the women in their private parts. The female officer who said not to do the search was fired the male officer who did the search was suspended. WTF?? The women are suing. Damn right!!

  54. Barb (Just wondering in Jersey) says:

    Ladebra, maybe it’s jill z? Just a guess. I have no inside info.

  55. Powell says:

    The mom that drove her kids in the water in March and tried to kill her kids was in court today. He bond was reduced from $1 million to $90,000. Her psychiatrist said she was post-partum, she said she was a domestic violence victim, saying people had performed voodoo on her, the tv was sending her messages, her husband was could control her body and mind and she was hearing the voice of the devil. This occurred 9 yrs ago and she was put in the hospital and put on meds. Boy oh boy. This sounds a lot like Andrea Yates when her post-partum brought her symptoms out stronger.

  56. iceNfire says:

    Hello – Long, long time ago when kids were little I was mad at Husband and told him I was taking the kids and moving in with my GrandMother. He said he didn’t want me to go but if I really wanted a divorce he would move into a nearby apartment so he could be close by for the kids.
    This never happened but we each knew what are lives would look like if we did divorce.

  57. Powell says:

    HLN will rerun the B & Jason story between 4-5 pm est.

  58. shamrockblonde says:

    Hi Ice that was great! and I know what you mean – no matter how angry I got with my husband, no matter how frustrated, I always loved him just a bit – sometimes a very small bit – more than I was angry with him – and in that little bit I found I wanted it to always be us –

      Uuuuuuuyyyyyyyy, ujele Julita!

    • Orson says:

      Yeah. Not much of a surprise. The thing is, if they want Lisa to come back, they need to find someone to be her RH friend. And maybe fire Kim or Brandi just to shake up the Anti-Lisa side. Brandi’s reprehensible but she probably does pull in the ratings. Kim, on the other hand, is utterly useless. It’d be interesting to see if Kyle would really quit the show for her sister. I guess they could demote Kim to friend. Or if Kyle pitches enough of a fit when they want to fire Kim, AND if they’re willing to lose them both, they could tell Kyle “Okay, Kim can come back as a ‘friend’, but her pay will come out of YOUR salary.”

  60. Good afternoon everyone! Hope all is well with you. IceNFire that post is great. Happy Birthday WindyCityWondering!
    I posted yesterday that Kristen’s blog was late. Actually it was early and I missed it scrolling down the list.
    IDK. She says that she and Josh kid each other all the time and it is not coming across like that in the editing. How many times have we heard this?????? I think they are in for some rough times after this season wraps. Poor Kristen gets molested by George. Personally I would have slugged that dirty old man.
    Pepper says grrrrr……..

  62. SCGirl says:

    Watching vintage episodes of Real Housewives of Atlanta. Bravo is running season two right now, and my how the housewives franchise has changed. What’s funny is, I could watch season 2 episodes 10 times and they still are way more interesting to me than any of the housewives shows on now. I can barely even get through some of the episodes nowadays. Season 1 and 2 of Atlanta were the good ole days, when I couldn’t wait to watch the show each week. I really miss the way housewives use to be. Why did bravo ever mess with the format of the show. Hard for me to put my finger on all the things that made the early years of Housewives great, but one thing I’ve noticed in watching the early episodes is that every single episode was not based around petty drama that played out through the whole season. Housewives used to be interesting, because for the most part each episode was about something different every week. Now the shows start the season with some topic that becomes the drama that the entire season is based around.What else do you all think made the early episodes of housewives so much better?

  63. chismosa™ says:

    Is it confirmed Joyce and Carlton ? I wonder if they’re working on a Richards sister.

    Kyle would have a coronary so I guess Kim?

    I just watched a preview blurb on Marriage Bootcamp …. …. I didn’t know Trista and her husband were having trouble! Say it ain’t so! And Slade is flat out bawling, the ugly cry over sunthin! And poor Gretchen is trying to squeeze out a tear. And there was an ambulance, and I think that crazy pot banging Bad Girl was on the gurney. I bet Bravo is drooling over all the crapfest, and they didn’t think of it first!

    • chismosa™ says:

      Ugly cry LOL. makes me think of Kim K.

      That chick from Bad Girls was great tv before all the reality shows got beyond ridiculous. Love her. Won’t watch this though.

      Maybe the bachelorette is just in dire need of money so has to invent problems ?

      • ladebra says:

        I’m thinking it’s all made up. But I’m gonna have to watch so I can verify 😛
