Real Housewives of New York City “The B is Back!”

Real Housewives of New York City

“The B is back!” – S7E1

by Stars99

Group Shot

Welcome Back New York City! How exciting! I mean Season 6 left us with so many unanswered questions – But the BIGGEST question had to be… Is there even going to be a Season 7? Ratings were down… The housewives themselves were going through some major life changes – And I don’t just mean just Botox and plastic surgery…

Through it all, the planets managed to align and we have lucky Season 7. Plus, they somehow were able to entice Bethenny to come back… Who would have thought? They even entitled the first episode “The B is back.” Of course this implies Bethenny’s a “B***” since it’s obviously referencing a classic Elton John song – Btw, I found this amazing footage from a 1986 Joan Rivers show wherein Elton is singing and Joan is singing along – At the very end they are joined by someone who wonders if you can turn back time… Enjoy!

This season, our beloved Empress of Aiken (http://realhousewifeofaiken.com/) and I have decided to join our formidable forces together (Ya’ll should be very, very afraid…lol) to bring you each week’s happenings from “the city that never sleeps”… This week, it’s my turn… (Insert maniacal laff here…) Bwahahaaaaa… “Start Spreading the News”…

Season 7 Taglines

Kristen: “Pretty – Is smarter than you think.”

Ramona:  “I know I’m a piece of work – But now, I’m a work in progress.”

Dorinda:  “I give uptown a whole new attitude.”

Heather:  “I’m stronger than anything in my way. Holla!”

Bethenny: “I’m not a housewife – But I AM real.”

Carole:  “All play and no work makes me a happy girl.”

LuAnn:  “One should know… Never count out the Countess.”

Sonja:  “My yacht may have sailed – But my ship is comin’ in!”

 

Remember Last Season…

Aviva attempted to besmirch Carole’s professional livelihood by accusing her that she used a ghostwriter for her book(s)… Puhleeze… We saw entirely too much of Sonja in her “Caburlesque” Ummm… show… We’ll just call it a show, okay?… Carole was queen of the Mermaid Parade… We learned that new girl Kristen and her “Blue Suede Shoes” have a “Hunka Hunka Burnin’ Love” for Elvis and would love to say to him – C’mon, “Don’t Be Cruel” – “Love Me Tender” and “Be My Teddy Bear.” Alas, poor Kristen is heading for “Heartbreak Hotel.”

Oh, and we had splashes… Kristen splashed Ramona… Ramona splashed Kristen… And, as recently noted, while it’s true that Lisa R on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills threw an actual glass and the wine in it on their show and no one was hurt – Last season, Ramona threw a plastic glass of wine at Kristen and actually drew blood (#TryHarderLisaR #LoveYa)…

When the group was vacationing at the Berkshires at Heather’s family home, Ramona ordered an air conditioner to be delivered to her room… This was just before she left the group and the Berkshires via a private airplane she had on “stand-by”… That’s just how she rolls, I guess…

At one point, I hear most of the women went up to Saratoga – And their horse naturally won – Well, except for Sonja’s…(Sorry, obligatory “You’re So Vain reference:

… Then, we all witnessed a truly cringe-worthy moment (in light of their current state of “affairs”) when Mario heartfully (Cough, Cough) sang “Effortless” to Ramona (Ack… Gag… Gurgle…) But Heather shocked the heck out of us when she belted out a fabulously awesome rendition of “Won’t You Come Home, Bill Bailey”… Who knew she could even sing? And better than almost every other housewife on every other franchise (Except for the obvious, Kandi)…

There was also the trip to some tumbleweeds in Montana that everyone was oh, so thrilled about. Aviva carried around x-rays and an asthma inhaler to prove that she couldn’t go on the trip… In the finale, Aviva threw her prosthetic leg for no apparent reason… and Bravo threw her and her creepy dad off the show.

B drinking

This Week…

Bethenny is back! Yay! So of course, the first scene is of her… As she checks into the Presidential Suite of the Essex House, she is already complaining to us that she’s homeless and has been in transition for over 2 years… Poor baby… I suppose technically that the word “homeless” does mean “without a home” – But let’s be honest… Most would also attribute words like “penniless” or “poor” or “living on the streets” to complete a truly “homeless” picture. It feels a tad tone deaf for a multi-millionaire to refer to themselves as “homeless” especially as an opening ironic joke for a TV show. The joke is not lost on us – We’re just not laffin’. Perhaps you should go and serve a couple meals at a soup kitchen or a homeless shelter and see if you still want to joke about being homeless again.

Seriously, there is NO reason for Bethenny to be “homeless” for that length of time. There is such a thing as month-to-month rental agreements and 6 month leases…  I love me some Bethenny – But I think she really reentered this show on the wrong foot with this storyline – I’m tired of it already. #PoorLittleRichGirl.

She explains later in the episode about how difficult it is for her to be without a home while her ex-husband is living in the apartment wherein she picked every tile, screw and finish. She worked all her life to be able to buy an apartment like that – And she’s not the one living there. Now, while I probably would not want to live there because of the bad memories associated with the marital breakup… It’s completely understandable how cranky Bethenny must be about it. It irritates me that it seems Jason thinks he’s entitled to so much – When all he really did was to enter the game long after Bethenny had already worked hard to get up to the 95 yard line and then he was only there for the last 5 yards. Sure, it happened to include the big sale of the alcohol portion of the Skinny Girl products – But come the heck on… I’m not sure what he’s exactly demanding at this point… But it’s not like they were married for years and years… I wonder how he sleeps at night? I know there are two sides to every story – But we’ve witnessed quite a bit of their lives as it unfolded on national TV. The thing is… They both should be aware that their daughter will one day know all about this mess… She will have questions… She will have feelings… Both of them had better check themselves.

Kristen

We see a brief glimpse into Kristen’s life which seems every bit as hectic as it ever was. Her son, Cash, is now 6 and her daughter, Kingsley, is now 2. Fortunately, with a lot of physical therapy and other interventions – Kingsley is up and running around like a 2-year-old should. That’s so awesome! Kristen tells us that Josh has changed a lot, too – It seems like he’s taking more of a direct interest in caring for the day-to-day needs of the kids which frees up Mommy to be able to get out more often.  Woo hoo!

Dinner

Heather, Carole, Kristen and LuAnn all meet at “Strand.” Evidently, Carole is on a cucumber, vodka and butter diet. I’m sure she’s lost a lot of weight on that because the thought of it makes me nauseated. Carole’s hair has gone blonde – I think because she wants to sit on the blonde side of the couch at the Reunion now that Aviva is gone.

LuAnn tells the women that they’re all invited to her new “fresh start” house in the Hamptons for a housewarming party. She has invited everyone – Even those she’s not especially getting along with at the moment (No names mentioned, Sonja.). And since she’s not there – They all begin to talk about Sonja behind her back. They just couldn’t wait to gossip about some of Sonja’s recent antics which they read about in various magazines, tabloids, etc. It doesn’t seem like Sonja is on good terms with any of them at this point. Heather says she had been supportive and protective of Sonja – But she is not going to enable and sweep crap under the carpet any more. #LumpyCarpet  They try overly hard to prove they’re kewl by talking about Tinder accounts. Yawn.

Heather and Carole

Now our attention is back on Bethenny who is preparing to host a cocktail party. She panics because she doesn’t have any ice. Huh? Oh come the heck on… The ONE universal thing every dang hotel has – Is ice – Vats of ice – So excuse me that I don’t get all flipped out about how your assistant will probably have to walk down the hall and get all the ice you could ever want in your entire life…

B talking to Luann

LuAnn arrives first to the party and has a chance to sit and chat with Bethenny about various things. I was surprised to learn that LuAnn and Jacques lived together for 4 years. Did we know this? I knew they were probably living together at some point – But 4 years? Yikes!… LuAnn explained they were bickering with each other a lot and that’s why they broke up. She said they loved each other enough to know that their relationship wasn’t really working for either one of them. Bethenny concludes that the message must be that love really isn’t enough. But that contradicts the Captain and Tennille song, “Love Will Keep Us Together.” My whole philosophy on love and life is now shattered, tyvm. LuAnn invites Bethenny to her housewarming party in the Hamptons.

Bethenny explains that she’s not officially divorced yet and confirms they have no friendship at this point, either. She thinks she will be on the other side of things in about 6 months. She expresses that she feels like she’s starting all over again.

Luann

Bethenny asks about the other women. LuAnn tells her that Sonja has changed and has not been nice to The Countess. They both acknowledge that Ramona must be going thru hell at the moment. Bethenny tells us she has always called LuAnn “Switzerland” because she likes to vacation there and she doesn’t like to get into fights and stuff with the other women. Bethenny obviously hasn’t watched the shows after she left, right?

Sonja and Ramona

Sonja and Ramona get together for coffee… They haven’t seen each other in a long time. They both tell each other how wonderful they look. Ramona tries to express to Sonja how she feels like her whole world has fallen apart. She mentions how she and Mario had been together for 25 years. Sonja decides this would be a great time to get into a pissing match about how difficult her own divorce was – And then she tries her hardest to make the math about how long she knew her ex-husband before they got married + the time they were actually married – To be more than or equal to Ramona’s 25 years with Mario… But Sonja failed miserably.

Now Sonja is wildly entertaining to me for the most part – But Sonja kept trying to make the entire conversation to be about her – And it didn’t appear to me that she was actually even listening to the heart of what Ramona was saying. It was like Sonja was trying to one-up Ramona the whole time. It was weird. Sonja thinks Ramona should trust her advice. I try my hardest not to laff out loud.

Ramona was close to tears… It’s got to be tough to go through this on national TV. She knows she renewed her vows in front of this same audience a couple of seasons ago. I never understood why they renewed their vows on their 17th anniversary – It seemed wonky at the time. And if the rumors are true and Mario has been stepping out on her for a number of years – It’s just plain creepy to me now.

Ramona

To me, the best thing about this entire conversation was when Ramona acknowledges that she previously allowed Mario to control what she said about his indiscretion – But that she’s not going to allow him to do that anymore. Personally, I think it’s probably very short-sighted of both Bethenny and Ramona to come on this show right now – Since neither of their divorces is finalized. I think both exes have the potential to be very litigious – And since they don’t have similar shows wherein they can have similar access to state their side of the story – This could go really badly for one or both of our beloved housewives. I hope I’m wrong…

Sonja tells Ramona that she wants Ramona to jump in to defend her when the girls inevitably start quizzing her about her products and when they start telling her how they’re concerned that she’s going to lose her house. Sonja wants Ramona to say, “Guys, she knows what she’s doing – She’s a movie producer, she’s a business woman…”

Okay, okay, okay… I just had to stop right there. Who on EARTH could possibly say that with a straight face? And why can’t I get the theme from “The Twilight Zone” out of my head? It’s like we’ve been magically transported to “The Sonja Zone” or something.

Fortunately, Ramona was able to maintain a straight face and say that she has a new attitude. She has decided not to get involved in other people’s fights because she has enough battles of her own going on at the moment. Now, most normal people would stop right then and there and recognize the truth of Ramona’s words. But not our little Sonja…

Sonja tells us that it really hurts her because she feels like she’s always been there for Ramona and that she’s always stuck up for her even when she was wrong. Sonja insists that Ramona needs to say when the girls are attacking Sonja, “Listen girls, she lives in a beautiful home, she supports herself and her daughter – And her daughter’s stable and doing well.”  I got to admit that it made me laff that it was the daughter who was stable and doing well – and not Sonja. But I guess that it would be just too farfetched to say something like that… Ramona says she’s “Got it.” Sonja cautions her not to say things like, “She has a great toaster oven.” Ramona assures her she’s got it… Ramona – How could you NOT get it? I mean, she even gave you a script! Lol…

Carole meets with her editor, Barbara Jones, who is not especially happy with her at the moment. Evidently, Carole has been doing a lot of playing and not a lot of writing. I’m thinking it’s kind of not a good idea to ignore it when your editor calls you. Barbara wants to know when she can expect to get the 2nd book. Carole tells us that 80,000 words were due to Barbara 6 months ago and so far she only has the Table of Contents written…lol.

To be fair, creative writing is tough to do when under a time crunch. It’s like your mind, your thought processes, your emotions, and your physical body all have to align in order “to birth a book.” I used to have this frustration when completing various creative writing projects at work. It’s difficult to create something from nothing under deadline pressures. Some are great at editing existing work – But it’s a whole nuther Oprah to create something out of nothing yourself. Now, Carole acknowledges that she’s been MIA and that her work is tardy but she tries to explain that she’s been asked to write the screenplay for the pilot episode for the TV series they want to do based on her previous book. Undeterred, Barbara tells Carole that she is going to put her on a strict schedule and she emphasizes that if she misses a deadline that it will become a legal problem. Rut roh. Barbara says that she gave Carole too long of a leash…. And now it’s a much shorter leash. Carole seems surprised by this.

Ramona visits her good friend Dorinda. She has known her for years and calls her “Uptown Chic.” Ramona talks about her situation with Mario. Fortunately, Dorinda seems like a good listener. Ramona says that she could forgive Mario for cheating. What she can’t forgive him for is that he is blaming his cheating on Ramona. Evidently, the gooberhead didn’t like the way Ramona was treating him. Poor, poor Mario. How many of us saw his obvious roving eye anytime someone with breasts and a pulse walked by? Mario told Ramona that he was very angry and he just held everything in. Ramona thinks he was disrespectful to his family. Now Ramona may have her quirks and be tough to live with in some ways – But I’m sure he is, too.

Dorinda is giving Ramona exactly what she needs at the moment – A listening ear and a compassionate heart. Dorinda tells Ramona things like she’s been a good friend to him and a great partner. They talk about how divorce is like a death. Dorinda knows about both since she got divorced from one husband and the other died a few years ago. Dorinda is inspirational to Ramona because she has been through both of these tragedies and she still has a smile on her face. Ramona feels like she has tried to do everything she could to save her marriage.

Dorinda

Oh good – We get to really meet Dorinda and her daughter, Hannah. Dorinda was married to Hannah’s father until Hannah was 5… They got divorced and then she married Richard when Hannah was 11. Unfortunately, Richard tragically died 3 years ago.  After his death, Hannah decided she needed to take some time off from college to “find herself.” She lives with her mom now. Dorinda is not sure what “finding yourself on the upper east side” means… But okay.

Evidently, our little Hannah likes to go shopping with her Mother’s credit card. Dorinda is not okay with this. Dorinda wants to return a Fendi bag because it has a tongue hanging out of it… It’s kind of quirky. Hannah says that she’ll keep it – Dorinda says that if Hannah wants to keep it then she will have to pay for it. Hannah seemingly doesn’t understand and says, “You birthed me – Why do you charge me for living?” I’m dying laffin’… Dorinda admits she created a monster because she wanted to give Hannah everything that she didn’t have when she was a child… Yeah, that rarely works out well…

Hannah agrees to go with Dorinda to return the Fendi bag but she tells her she doesn’t want her to make a scene. I can totally see Dorinda making a scene and I can’t wait for them…lol. Hannah tells Dorinda that she just can’t bulldoze people until they do what she wants them to do… Dorinda disagrees. Rut Roh.

Later on, Dorinda visits her boyfriend John Mahdessian, owner of Madame Paulette, the leading cleaning and restoration establishment of worldwide couture garments in the Upper East Side (According to her Bravo Bio which can be accessed at: http://www.bravotv.com/people/dorinda-medley). I think this is all just a fancy way of saying that he’s a dry cleaner and a tailor of couture garments. This must be really tough work because the people who have the money to buy couture garments tend to be very picky about them.

Okay, I hear “The Sonja Zone” music playing again so we must be visiting Sonja who is trying to convince us that she’s been “crazy busy” for the last 6 months – And I don’t mean just because her tooth fell out again. According to Sonja, she’s been running her homes in Colorado and New York… She’s been building new businesses… Taking care of her daughter… And training her interns… Whew… I’m exhausted… Aren’t you? I mean she has like 87 interns – So I can see how training them would be exhausting.

Sonja decides one of her interns knows too much and so she decides she has to kill him like on that TV series she’s watching… “The Game of Thorns” – (Yep… I meant to type “Thorns” instead of “Thrones” because that’s what she said and it’s what my closed captioning said she said…lol)…

And in tonight’s edition of, “I Kid You Not” – Sonja amusingly says of herself, I KID YOU NOT, “I used to be classy – But now I’m trashy.” Whoa… Evidently, LuAnn was wrong – Money DOES buy you class, my friend…lol…

As Sonja gets a gold facial (The platinum facial was last week and the human placenta facial was another time altogether… Ugh! – And I bet you think I’m joking…lol…), Sonja chats with her facialist, Satoko, and an intern about various subjects. She boasts that she successfully sold her home in France. She doesn’t think that most people understand the stories written about her in the tabloids. Wait… Are the stories wrong? Or are you saying people in general don’t have the brains to understand the complexities that comprise your life? I gotta admit – I find it difficult to understand Sonja half the time, too.

Sonja delusionally says that people don’t sue you because you didn’t do the deal – They sue you because you have the money to pay them… Actually, Sonja – That can’t be true otherwise we’d all just sue everyone who was rich for no apparent reason. You first have to have some sort of cause to file the lawsuit, no?  She doesn’t feel like any of the girls are supporting her through the trauma that she’s been going through in her life so she’s done telling any of them anything…lol.

Sonja says she’s working on “an international fashion lifestyle brand”… I wonder if the “J” in Sonja is dotted… Oh whew, she has a branding expert AND she has a marketing expert. Awesome. Sonja can’t wait to be successful because as she says of the other housewives, “Boy, will they eat crow when I show them.” We’re all holding our breath…lol.  Actually, I really do hope that one of these projects really works out for her – I’d love to see her be successful.

Bethany TH

Awww… And we end the show with Bethenny looking for an office with a home feel to it. Some of the mystery is solved about why she’s still without a home at this point – When she finally clues us in that she can’t live in her old Tribeca apartment (Her future ex-husband is currently living there) and she bought a new apartment in SoHo that’s being renovated.  OMG… Bethenny, my friend… Don’t you think it’s a bit unfair to ask viewers to feel sorry that you change your underwear in the back of a car when YOU, YOURSELF made that decision by buying an apartment that required significant renovations? Puhleeze. Fredrik from Million Dollar Listing is helping her find some office space on a rainy day. They find something, and the conversation with the listing agent turns into them talking about fetishes after Fredrik says that he gets aroused when he negotiates the prices of properties. The other guy says he likes legs. Bethany says she likes big butts (and she cannot lie – Sorry, I couldn’t resist). Fredrik says he likes big hands. I’m wondering if anyone really knows the meaning of “fetish” at this point. But maybe it’s me who doesn’t know… But I’m not especially eager about looking it up on the internet at this moment – I shudder to think what some key word searches would turn up…lol…

We also find out that Bethenny bought a home in the Hamptons last summer. Okay wait… If you own a home – By definition – You’re not homeless, yo. Frederik offers Bethenny a bedroom at his house… Bethenny finds out that Frederik and his husband want to start a family. She half-jokingly offers to be their surrogate. She bemoans that she’s on the last legs of being able to have a baby. She recognizes that currently, she doesn’t even have some of the stable things she needs to be able to offer the daughter she already has much less to meet the requirements of a new baby.

Bethenny is crying because she wants her life back – She doesn’t want the same life – But a new life. Fredrik is incredulous that she’s been living in hotels for over 2 years. They joke about eggs… And about how Bethenny thinks the couple of “eggs” she has left would make really good omelets.

Next Week…

Evidently, when Sonja stays at Ramona’s house in the Hamptons, she has a certain room she always stays in… However, on this trip, Ramona gave that room to Dorinda so Sonja is banished downstairs… She’s so not happy… Carole tells us that she is very attracted to very attractive men – And some fresh meat mistakenly wanders into the cougar den and everyone begins to salivate, drool and I wouldn’t be surprised if they didn’t start circling him. I think it was Heather who mimicked the “You had me at hello” line from the move, “Jerry Maguire” and charmingly said, “He had me at merlot.” I chuckled… Ramona tells LuAnn she owes her “the biggest apology”… but LuAnn will never forget what Ramona has done to her in the past… Bethenny and Ramona are already butting heads… Bethenny reminds us that she came up with the name, “Ramona-Coaster” for a reason… Bethenny gently breaks it to Ramona that she doesn’t… like… Wanna hang out with her… lol… We haven’t seen LuAnn’s great quote yet, “Be cool. Don’t be all, like… Uncool.”  #DailyGoal

Well, that’s it for this week! Woo hoo! They’re back! It was a fun episode to watch, no?… I didn’t even throw anything at the TV… Plus, I only yelled a couple of times – Well, maybe 4 times… But that’s still pretty good – Considering… Next week should be a fun one! Thanks so much for reading…

I’m new on Twitter and I’d love to follow you… @StarsNinetyNine… Hope to see you next week… Happy Trails!

    Oh boy! Oh boy! Starzy and Empress, can’t wait to read, but it’s off to work I go. I’ll have to catch up tonight!

    • California35 says:

      Same here 😦
      I can’t wait to read 🙂 Thanks Stars!

      • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

        Awww…You’re welcome, CA… My neighbor! Thanks for the follow on Twitter! 🙂

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I’m home today, so I got to read!!! Great blog stars99! “99…woohoo…” Thinking of that Toto song. I didn’t watch because I was watching THE VOICE. Hopefully my dvr did as instructed and I will get to watch rhny eventually. Sounds like, from your blog that production will no longer be showing us Sonja as the quirky amusing hw. But now it’s almost like they are exposing her not so stable characteristics in a more realistic way. The way her narcissism takes center stage when Ramona tries to convince us they are such buddies…the way she tells the facialist and intern she’s gonna show everyone… “They’re gonna eat crow”… That’s just sad. We’ve always wondered about her…but now production seems to have removed the kid gloves…no more wink-wink, nudge-nudge… It’s game on. Right out of the gate, this will NOT be the Spring of Sonja. It was time, I guess.

      I didn’t watch last season. But B is bringing me back to try NY again.

      • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

        Hi LaineyLainey so nice we say it twice… Yeah, Sonja for sure is not getting a great edit thus far… She kind of reminds me of the saying, “All smoke and no barbecue.” I love her dearly – but she is clearly delusional. I thought her, “I used to be classy – But now I’m trashy” was a fleeting moment of clarity for her. I really want her to succeed… I do hope we will all be eating crow… 🙂

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      lol… Work always seems to get in the way of fun, no? Hope you’re doing well, my neighbor!

  2. Veena (NMD) says:

    Jill Zarin reacts to Ramona’s comment on WWHL. Asked about what Patti S said about seeing Mario meet Casey and begin the affair at a party at the Hamptons, Ramona said Patti didn’t know what she was talking about, and like Jill sometimes just says things to be relevant. Jill and Patti struck back – below the belt for Jill – reminding us why we all dislike her.

    • Veena (NMD) says:

    • That is really mean – I hate Jill Zarin

      • T-Rex says:

        Yeppers and I hate that StinkyStankySkankerrificStanger as well. Look TheLunaticZarin and everyone else in the Hamptons on their level has known that LetharioMario has cheated for many, many, many, many years. It was not a state secret, he was just supposed to keep his paramours on the “down-low”, but he screwed some BSC woman who took it to the tabloids, eventually that most cheaters get found out. HOWEVER it is none of those two morons business to bring this to the open, especially since THELunaticZarin has been cheated on by Bawby for years also.

    • Powell says:

      They stick together don’t they? If Bobby leaves her after she bankrupts him she’ll be talking out the other side of her face.
      Has her pal gotten Ally any dates? I doubt it. 😝 👎 That’s why we “Hate Jill Zarin”.

      • UGH!!!

        IHJZ!

        These stupid bishes were at a party or get together in the Hamptons and saw Mario getting very handsy with another woman so they’re claiming they “saw” him cheating.

        And sadly he was.

        But did anyone tell Ramona? Or did they just stab her in the back?

        #rhetoricalquestion

  3. Veena (NMD) says:

    And when asked about Brandi saying crap about Ramona on Steve Harvey, Ramona said she has met Brandi and had a nice dinner with her – basically avoiding the question – but then blurted out “too many injectables” covered her mouth and said, “I shouldn’t have said that.” No – because you don’t hit Brandi without her hitting back – just like Jill and Patti.

    • serenanyc says:

      Crackhead. Always a class act.

    • T-Rex says:

      Seriously? Look you all know I don’t like CraggyDrunkenBitchRamona, never have, but even I think that’s a FAKE ass text. Oh and that “crackhead” is a multi-millionaire, who is NOT having Bravo pay her rent, cause she owns several homes, all of which are worth millions, has several businesses and why in the HELL would she need THELIARSUPREMESLUTBAGSCUMBAGLYINGLIARJEALOUSBITCHMORONSTFUBrandi’s book agents name? CraggyDrunkenBitchRamona has her OWN PR team, an staff that could look that shit up on google at any point in time, and could get production to get her YoloLymon’s number at any time, etc. UGH Bravo just FIRE HER ASS!

      • Exit4 says:

        It has the date and time stamps-they’re real. It’s when you don’t have the date and times that you know they’re fake.

        • T-Rex says:

          I won’t believe it unless CraggyDrunkenBitchRamona owns them. I can make up a name and such and send texts to another phone and it will have time and date stamps, etc. They could be real, but if it’s coming from THELIARSUPREMESLUTBAGSCUMBAGLYINGLIARJEALOUSBITCHMORONSTFUBrandi I won’t believe it unless the actual author says they sent them. That CUNextTuesday lies so much and does such shady ass stuff, I don’t believe one freakin word from her.

          • Exit4 says:

            I think they’re real-they go back to march. Even Brandi isn’t weird enough to fake texts for months in the off chance she’ll get mad at them and need proof of something. Lol. Ramona is probably one of those people who decides she needs something at that moment and texts everyone under the sun. Cue Ramona voice and eye popping General itchiness: “I need a book agent, who has an agent, who wrote a book, brandi wrote a book, brandis husband cheated, brandis divorced,…I’m Texting brandi-we had dinner once I like her”.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              Exit I totally agree-I could see Ramona doing this exact thing!!!

              • T-Rex says:

                Okay, so it gives me yet yet another reason to completely still dislike CraggyDrunkenBitchRamona. At least she is consistent on getting folks to dislike her

            • Powell says:

              Exit that’s probably just what Ramona would have done. But why wouldn’t she ask Lu, Carole, even Heather?

              • Exit4 says:

                I could see Ramona sending the same text to every HW she knew that wrote a book! Insert all names into my quote!

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I think the text is real. Ramona said she had dinner with Brandi last year and she liked her. Ramona has a book coming out in the summer “Ramona Coaster” or something like that -so maybe she did ask Brandi for her agents number…however-none of that has anything to do with ANYTHING!! Ramona didn’t say she never sent Brandi a text-she never said she didn’t like or speak to Brandi! Ramona was told that Brandi called her BAT SHIT CRAZY-she didn’t even know Brandi said that on Steve Harvey! She reacted by saying she was surprised-and then she mentioned that Brandi should lay off the injectables…that’s not a secret!! Brandi is gross for showing a private text message from anyone-but since there is no sense to this it makes it even worse!!

        • Those messages seem to be from RAMINA Singer – not RamOna Singer. I’d hazard a guess and say that the one with the injectables didn’t look too closely at them before responding in such a classy manner….

        • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

          That’s exactly what I think —–
          These few texts do not a stalker or best friend MAKE.

          THEYRE COWORKERS.

          plus Brandis agent was Chelsea handlers agent so Ramona maybe wanted to use him.

          UGHHHHHHHHHH💩💩💩💩🙇🙇🙇🙇🙇🙇

    • HOW is Ramona a Hypocrite..???? She said that B had to many injections, maybe Brandi doesn’t know what telling the truth sounds like!!!!!

      • Powell says:

        No I think she doesn’t know the meaning of hypocrite. 😏.
        I think she decided that would be her new word. She uses it for every occasion. It’s her little black dress. 😊

      • Austin says:

        She calls everyone a hypocrite. It has absolutely zero meaning when proceeding out of her mouth.

    • RabbleRouser2010R says:

      Hey dumb whore- if you don’t want someone text messaging you, block their number.

  4. serenanyc says:

    About BH last night, did anyone else notice Brandi and Kim seething at the Eileen Emmy montage?

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Yes…Kim especially looked disgusted! Like they were showing something dreadful instead of Eileen’s accomplishments!! It was very telling!

      • serenanyc says:

        Kim seems jealous of Eileen (and Lisa R) having success as an actress at her age and wonders why it can’t be her.

      • kendo says:

        Does anyone know what is really wrong with Kim? Is she bipolar and mixing meds & alcohol. She’s really scary, seems like she’s lost her marbles. Kyle needs to stop with her. She’s never going to get what she needs from Kim, recognition!

    • It was priceless….

    • Powell says:

      Kim couldn’t think of what to say about Harry. LOL. LR said what is it. Is it an affair? Eileen said go ahead. She’s giving you permission. Say it. Hahaha. 😂😂😂
      BITCH got Nill, Nada, Nothin!

      • I completely disagree.

        Kim has heard the rumors that Harry is gay/ bisexual and is stepping out on Lisa with young men.

        That’s why she said “I won’t do that to your kids.”

        Lisa was prepared for a comeback, IMHO. So she was jumping around talking about a Harry having sex with a dog.

        Kim would not verbalize it, because it’s a really lowdown rumor to spread. No proof. Just what she “heard”.

        Lisa backed her in a corner, and if she said the rumor she’d be crucified. Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

        But oh wellsies. As Kandi says- don’t start none won’t be none.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          it doesn’t matter what rumor Kim heard-it could have been the gay sex thing or it could have been an affair with an under age woman -all the matters is that Kim lit the match-that’s all she had to do and every and any rumor that has been out there about Harry would be picked over -that was Kim’s goal. Kim sits around like a ditzy doped up pill popping nitwit but in reality she is a calculating bitch.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Brandi is calculating also-she knows that Eileen has never talked about her marriage and it took a long time for the “home wrecker” moniker to fade-but Brandi knows if she says it on he show that it is reborn and relived-that’s what she wanted for Eileen. The pot smoking with Kyle is another calculated move-Kyle never denied smoking -she didn’t say “I would never smoke pot” or “people who smoke pot suck”…she just didn’t want to be high on camera-that doesn’t make her a phony-that makes her responsible-but Brandi tried to turn it I to Kyle saying she NEVER smoked-that’s an out right lie and a very calculated one! I can’t even deal with Kim and Brandi!!!

            • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

              SOOOOOOO with you.

              Who do you think you are Tarts or something???😜〰〰〰〰〰〰

            • Powell says:

              Me neither JNNTJ. You see Kim has learned so much from Booble Bobble Head. Kim used to be mean but now she’s downright devious. Her BFF is rubbing off on her and it doesn’t look good.

            • RabbleRouser2010R says:

              It’s just like how LVP was fearing an obvious faux fur coat at a sangria signing and told a ‘fan’ that it wasn’t real when asked…and dumb ass Brandi made a point to say how Lisa isn’t PETA compliant and has a closet full of furs. Well duh…we say her wearing them when they all went to Camille’s house in CO. LVP saying that ‘this jacket isn’t real fur’ is nothing like saying “I don’t wear fur”.

          • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

            Is this 🔼 what the definition of “gaslighting” is —- that I believe Tarts was kind enough to put here last night. ???
            I can’t believe I took an entire course in college on James Joyce but to this day have trouble understanding the idea of gaslighting.

            Kill me. 🙋🔪

          • Jill? Um..ok? Are you arguing with me or against me?

            I don’t get it.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Kandi borrowed that from Lil John… Why do I know that???

        • Powell says:

          LR gave her license to say it. Kim knows nothing. She sits in her room and watches tv.

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      Yes, Serenanye… You’re right. I don’t get the venom at all. I think Eileen’s comment about Brandi being a “Super Fan” didn’t hit her right, too… It’s like they must destroy her or something…

  5. Powell says:

    Good morning peeps. Have you recovered from BH? Did you put some Jack in your coffee/tea/hot chocolate? 😖 ☕ 🍸 (sorry there’s no liquor bottle imogee). 😉

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      PowellyPooh… Can one every really recover from RHOBH?

  6. Sus says:

    I heard that Mario and Jason got together last night to watch the show.

    I didn’t really but it would be great if they did watch it together.

    • mrs peabody says:

      I bet Jason watched it, just to see if there is anything Bethany said he can use against her. I don’t understand why she just doesn’t rent an apartment to live in until her new one is done, probably cheaper than renting a hotel on an ongoing basis. Does that mean Jason is getting the apartment in the divorce if she bought a new place?

    • Powell says:

      Yeah so they could have a bitch fest. They’ll get theirs. Like y’all say. KARMA!

  7. mrs peabody says:

    Boy that Sonja lives in her own world. I thought it sad that when Ramona was trying to talk to her about what was going on she didn’t listen to a thing Ramona said and just tried to make it all about her failed marriage. Not a friend there. I know a person just like that, whenever I talk to her she does not listen to me and talks right over what I am saying just like I didn’t say a word. I guess that’s one of the reasons I have not seen her in the last 3-4 years. Funny I don’t miss her.

    • Powell says:

      And she’s got an international deal? HA!! If she finally makes that toaster oven Andy will eat crow. LOL last season reunion he said, “I’m still waiting for the toaster oven.”. HA!!!! 😆😆😆
      How come Lu got her deal and us selling her clothes on a home shopping channel? Lu did it in one, two yrs. We’ve been hearing about Sonja’s “line” coming out for 4 yrs.

      • RabbleRouser2010R says:

        The international deal- is that the one with the Brazilian soccer team? The Nigerian Prince?

  8. Booble’s blog is up if anyone has the stomach to read what the ghostwriter wrote. Shameful that Bravo can post without having any avenue to call bullshit on these works of fiction.

  9. T-Rex says:

    Okay, if this is how the season is going to start with DrunkDelusionalGreyGardensSonja, I am not sure I can watch. Grrrrr. First off, you produced ONE, ONE actual film that made an appalling 19.98 profit and is in the TOP TEN least producing movies of ALL TIME! Second, you didn’t SELL your home in France, the Bankruptcy court Auctioned OFF your home in France to mitigate your bankruptcy costs. You can LIE all you want, but the papers are in black and white and I have posted them previously, as have other here, UGH. Third, you are BANNED from your home in Colorado that is OWNED by your ex-husband, there are numerous documents that have been submitted to that fact. UGH UGH, UGH. I can’t go from one season of a complete liar to yet another season across the coast that has another complete liar.

    • serenanyc says:

      It’s the same thing each season. She lies, she’s delusional and she’s drunk.

    • Sus says:

      I agree. Time for Sonja to to go. Only redeeming factor from the first episode is her admitting she’s trashy. Thank you for the complete story on her “homes”. She’s going to end up really homeless, not Bethenny homeless.

      • T-Rex says:

        Her home in Manhattan was listed for sale and the day before filming started, was removed from the market. Her home has been severely “de-valued” for that area which means it’s a basically a dump or tear down, but it is hers and according to bankruptcy laws, they can’t make her sell her primary residence. Her bankruptcy is STILL ongoing there has been no final resolution by the way that I can see, which means she is dragging her feet to setup repayment plans, etc. Just because you don’t deal with a situation doesn’t make it go away, SHE declared the bankruptcy, no one MADE her do this!

        • Exit4 says:

          Did you see about the Juicys homes? All off market.

          • T-Rex says:

            Actually their “shore house” is in preclosure Auction, from what I could gather they haven’t paid on that house for over a year! From Zillow website is this much:

            MAR 31 2015 Foreclosure auction $344,030 unpaid balance

            The owner of this property has been served a Notice of Sale.

            This property was scheduled to be sold at a foreclosure auction on 03/31/15 at 2 p.m. at 120 HOOPER AVENUE, TOMS RIVER. Because auction dates often change or are postponed, it is unknown at this time if this auction was held. Please confirm with a foreclosure specialist.
            Home in default Public records indicate the owner of this property is in pre-foreclosure.
            Loan issued A loan was issued by HSBC BANK USA N A

        • Powell says:

          T-Rex she should have taken the highest offer she got the first time she had it for sale. She could’ve been in a nice place now. Her home’s value is decreasing while other properties to buy are appreciating. She’s never going to be able to afford a new place if she eventually sells.

      • Powell says:

        Sus there’s Booble Bobble Head and Sonja homeless vs Bethenny homeless. BBH can commiserate w/Sonja when she’s fired cuz she’ll he homeless too. No more bravo paid for rentals. I guess she can live in her leased Range Rover.

      • Foxymel(Mel) says:

        lol Not Bethenny homeless!

  10. Sus says:

    Frederic was so sweet to Bethenny. He handled her breakdown really well. I love the real estate show.

    • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

      Fredric was the best and IS THE BEST !!!!
      He was biting his lips tightly each time the horn kept blaring//yapping. 📢📢

      It was very similar to when dealing with his extra tough/ needy clients on his own show.

    • Powell says:

      Yes. I tweeted him Poor Frederic. 🙂

  11. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    From Brandi’s blog…

  12. VV™ says:

    Where’s boston?

  13. Foxymel(Mel) says:

    Great job, Starzy! I really think I’m going to enjoy this season of NY. The new lady Dorinda, looks pretty down to earth, but I do t think I can stomach her 20 something daughter if she’s going to be a brat.
    Sonja is a hot mess and I don’t know what would happen to her if she didn’t have this show.

    I’m thinking about not watching the BH reunion and just watch next week’s final episode. Too toxic. I read the comments from last night, and it seems like most thought that Andy was way to easy on Kim and Brandi.

    • Nickel says:

      Maybe Andy is letting the Bobble Twins dig their own grave? Like he’s sitting back and letting the footage speak for itself. Too optimistic? #wishfulthinking

    • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

      I saw some comment on Twitter that next week’s scenes look like they’re setting up “Rinna” as next year’s bad guy.

      Which you called a while while back i remember !🔆

    • LaineyLainey says:

      But you know, foxy, the daughter is 20something. Not 15-16 like jackDanielle’s kid was when nj started. Dorinda’s kid is a legal adult and as annoying as it will be, it’s the persona she’s eager to sell. We’ll see if anyone’s buying. It is probably all an act for the viewers’ attention anyway.

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      Thanks, Foxy – It will be interesting to see how this season goes… Dorinda is hard for me to read for some reason at the moment – She seemed so lovely – but then her daughter also asked her not to make a scene… I have a feeling she will be a bringer of drama… but it will be interesting to see who her target will be. I have a feeling that Sonja will go after Dorinda because she will be jealous of Dorinda’s relationship with Ramona… I don’t think that will go well for Sonja…

  14. Melissa says:

    I just want to note to whomever wrote this,
    In regards to Jason– first, Jason quit his job and career for Bethenny, rather we like Jason or not, Bethenny needed his help.
    You say Jason was only there for the last 5 yards? Have you ever sold a business? Let me tell you, it’s not easy. If I remember correctly, Jason not only helped sell the business; he helped get the bottles on every shelf; remember on Bethenny’s show she was having an issue and that is when Jason said he would work WITH B and NOT for Bethenny.
    I felt I needed to say something; selling a company that amount of money is more than the last 5 yards.
    There is a debate if Bethenny even invented the Skinny Girl drink. I heard Atkins had a version long before Bethenny. Then the rumor her mother used to make a family friend who was over weight the drink.

    • Veena (NMD) says:

      Of course none of our opinions matter to the judge who’ll decide what he’s legally entitled to. He seemed no more than an assistant – but as Stars said, we only see what they showed up on TV.

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      Melissa – I’m so glad you said something from your perspective. I think it’s great to have differing opinions here… I think they both wanted to be happy in their life together. I’m sad they weren’t able to do that. I hope whatever settlement is decided is just and fair to both. And I hope they remember their daughter will learn of what they say throughout the process. I didn’t like Jason at the end of their spin-off series… I’m hoping things weren’t as bad as they seemed…

      • Nickel says:

        I didn’t like him either. It was one of their fights where he didn’t want to be on camera. I got the distinct impression he was using her insecurities against her. Not cool.

  15. Exit4 says:

    Brandis ghostwriter has out done herself! I am actually stressed out! Lol! When brandis blog includes the words “military tribunal” you know she didn’t write it.

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      You’re welcome, Tiara… I’m excited about NY, too… The homeless thing obviously put me over the edge… but I do love me some Bethenny… #BCDBALU©®™

    Stars thanks for yhe blog and for telling us your twit account. I’m following you now 😊
    The episode was light and informative. Just what I wanted to see 😊 if course we can not have RealHousewives without drama, so we will have some of that I’m sure. I do hope though, that it doesn’t turn ugly.

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      Yay! Thanks for following, my neighbor – Although, arguably, I have no idea what I’m doing yet… And I’m following you – You can run, but you cannot hide… bwahahahahahahaaaaaa

  21. Great recap Stars…thank you so much. I was so over NY and didn’t even watch last season because of Ariva and her dad;, hot mess Sonja, and Ramona. It was just train wreck city! I saw the episode last night, and I might stick around this season…if through no other way than reading your blog about it! I like that the “B” is back!

  22. SerenaNYC says:

    By the way, what did everyone think of Dorinda last night? I’ve heard some mixed reactions but I like her overall and look forward to seeing how she mixes with the ladies.

    • T-Rex says:

      It’s only show one and it depends on how they sway her storyline, if we are going to be inundated with her spoiled brat offspring as some sort of segway to get her publicity, than I will be very unhappy. I hope this is the LAST show she is on for any length of time, they are going to turn off a boatload of folks with this privileged deadbeat spawn living in her home. So for me the Jury is OUT.

  23. BTW my darlings…no one has commented on LisaR sending threatening tweets to Kim?

    Just wondering how threatening someone would contribute to their sobriety? You know the sobriety that she made an entire season’s storyline about?

    Because LisaR CARES remember? hmmmm…that doesn’t seem very caring….

    Now I guess we know who the real Cali gangsta is…take a seat Brandi, just sit the feck down and let a real MoFo show you how it’s done.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Haha! I love your last sentence.

    • California35 says:

      This is part of why Im over BH because even though one was wrong first, now both wrong. I like Lisa R and I think, BUT she is now looking pretty bad, sooo 😕
      She is acting out of anger or fustration because of Kim, but still. I wish she had kept it cool ” not uncool” 😏

      • California35 says:

        And by the way Kim is getting what she wanted… A reaction. Now she is back to her life nothing ever happened, Lisa R is still reacting.

    • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

      Now remind me —- I know you and I are in that minority of finding Lisa R a tad cuckoo with some stuff {and not in the super fun WITTY cuckoo way 😏 she calls herself} — but did Kim read those texts in the scene for next week or she read them last night ?
      ( too much to process w/ NY also)

      That’s where Lisa got teary and said she’s human and makes mistakes and evil spawn Kim is like “oh she’s a good crier”.

      I ve never gotten a fave or shoutout from Rinna on twitter so I may be off of her jock soon enough. #######Done👋
      Sorry — only YO is allowed Victoria beckam and white dresses !! Have a SEAT

      • HA, so much to love in your comment…

        It was in a preview of next week. The proverbial smoking gun.🔫🔫🔫

        Yeah get off that jock. I think she’s cray.

        I also didn’t like how LisaR said her parents screwed her up by telling her not to have a voice or an opinion or emotions or whatevs…

        Threw them right under the bus. Because 52 is still not old enough to take responsibility for yourself.

        • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

          I’m like in a fugue state. She criticized her parents about that ????
          I guess to rationalize saying how she felt about things – relating to the addiction storyline.

          I COMPLETELY agree with everyone that even though she said funny things — lisa should have STFU and let Eileen SLICE 🔪🔪🔪🔪 Kim and Boobs. Eileen was great.

        • Foxymel(Mel) says:

          She’s got blank blank problems.

    • Not ok with it and she should keep her ass on the sofa instead of hopping up and down and not interrupt when Eileen is making excellent points.

    • Exit4 says:

      It’s simple. People like Lisa rinna and they don’t like Kim richards. They are both wrong for going at each other-the tweets and i think, texts too. Grown women shouldn’t do that. But on the other hand-I think Kim richards is awful and deserves what she gets. I know thats bad, but that’s how I feel!

      • Well to be fair- we don’t know what tweets Kim sent to provoke LisaR.

        Andy sometimes talks about the ” Gorga switch” I wonder if there’s a Rinna switch too?

        Anyhoo- can’t stand either one. Just a matter of degrees of dislike.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I feel the same-right or wrong Kim had it coming. Maybe if Kim was scared or actually felt threatened I would feel differently but Kim is loving every minute of this shit-so I will sit back and enjoy it too!!

      • kit9 says:

        Only one of the texts was questionable. The other one wasn’t at all, just telling Kim the way she talks to people is not ok. And, it’s really rich Kim getting all offended when what her bestie Brandi threatened her OWN SISTER with was much worse and Kim, not only said nothing when Brandi said it right in front of her, but just stood there smirking. So, Kim can’t claim to be horrified at Lisa’s texts. It’s absurd.

        • Thank you! I am laughing at those texts! If Brandi repeatedly cursing and threatening Kyle while Kim sits next to her is okay by Kim, then Kim lost the moral high ground to complain about those texts.

          What I see in Kim now is she has not one ounce of compassion or caring about anyone. And neither does Brandi. They both smirked and sneered from the first moment to the last at the Reunion. A couple of sadistic jerks, that’s who they are.

          I’m so upset with watching women being victimized at this level for entertainment, I really don’t know if I want to watch any more HWs shows because Andy and Bravo have lost my trust.

    • Foxymel(Mel) says:

      LOL!
      What did she text Kim?

    • RabbleRouser2010R says:

      I knew there was a reason that I didn’t like Lisa R. The first few episodes she was on..she admittedly started to grow on me but as the season went on the facade went down.

      Lisa R is shit stirring meddler, I don’t even think she is well intended..I think she likes to get insert herself into EVERYONE else situation to hear herself talk and force everyone else to hear it.

      Then the BS tears- “Oh boo hoo she tried to shush me, I was shushed as a child and I am shushy fragile from it. I can’t even watch cartoon episodes of the Simpson’s since the production credits have a ‘shusher’ in the end”

      At times she is honest-but not for the sake of being honest. She uses honesty as a weapon. She tells peoples secrets and calls that being honest-she’s honest about the secret but not about why she’s telling the secret. She’s honestly a moron.

    • Foxymel(Mel) says:

      She likes to twist the truth. But I would personally say she’s not an honest person.

    • kit9 says:

      She’s a pathological liar.

      • kit9 says:

        She spent an entire season lying about something that never happened. She’s lied in real time at both Part 1 and Part 2 of the reunion, for god’s sake. Any Brandi fan that is still living like it’s 2 years ago and claiming she’s the truth cannon, is high.

    • Orson who doesn't own a circus or any monkeys says:

      Um… maybe “for a given level of honest”?

    • mrs peabody says:

      no she leaves things out that are important to the conversation. I don’t think it is being honest if she doesn’t give all the information

      • mrs peabody says:

        I also think she gives just enough information that is correct so you think she is being truthful but unless you know the whole truth of what she is saying it’s hard to know she is actually not being truthful……example my granddaughter’s mother. What she was telling you was truthful enough but unless you really had knowledge of the situation you would not know she wasn’t telling you everything, that things were not always as she was telling you because there was missing details that changed the whole meaning of what really happened.

  27. The funniest part of the reunion for myself and PBB was Brandi trying so hard to be all gansta, “It’s assault and battery, bitch!” but then anytime anyone says anything to her…her voice goes so high and squeaky that all the dogs in the neighborhood start howling…..so of course we did our imitations of her and were rotfl!!!!

  28. Ok I made a similar post on the last blog this morning. Does anyone find it funny that Booble has in the past week raised only about $1k for her charity despite multiple postings on twitter including ones with cute kids? I mean it is great that she wants to raise $15k for Make-a-Wish and with all her “friends” and rabid fans I thought it would be a slam dunk, but she still has about $5k to go. Is this a sign that her popularity has finally tanked or am I just being optimistic?

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I’m frankly impressed that she is doing something good. She may be short of her goal, but that’s a lot of money regardless. I don’t care for her, but I can’t find fault with this one thing. But I do get what you’re saying. Her ugly behavior leaches into everything. Hopefully, she will make her goal.

    • designernailsdiana says:

      She has no real friends who have actual money. She ruined her chances when she went after LVP.

    • Foxymel(Mel) says:

      It’s pretty sad that she wasn’t able to raise more money. It could also be that her friends have already donated to that charity or donate to others. I think that many of her friends probably know that she’s probably doing this more for show (please don’t think I’m being mean) than because she wants to raise money for this great cause.

      I was going to say something else about Jac but I think I’ll stop myself.

  29. cdnfillie58 says:

    I feel everyone’s hating on Jason … Don’t unnerstand it tho. Didn’t I see an episode where she begged Jason to help her …( Meaning give up his job ) …get her business off the ground. He was reluctant but she pushed to get her way…or am I totally out in left field here?

    • I dunno. I feel sorta the same as you. Bethany has been questionable to say the least.

      But so has Jason.

      I think they are both really flawed selfish individuals.

      No heros here- just zeros.

    • kit9 says:

      Her business was already way off the ground. Skinnygirl was up and running-the margarita was already in production. She also had Bethenny Bakes. Imo, she asked Jason to work for her to help his ego, as much as anything, because he kept talking about how inadequate he felt in comparison to her. I mean, he wasn’t a business man, wasn’t he a trainer?

      • cdnfillie58 says:

        Don’t matter what he was, he was hesitant and she pushed..methinks there’s a whole lotta crap that went down between those two … IMO

        • kit9 says:

          All that may be true but it doesn’t entitle him to a chunk of her empire. He wasn’t instrumental in making Skinnygirl a brand. He can’t conceive it, he didn’t secure the deal to get it into production. He doesn’t deserve anything but the salary he earned while working for her, imo.

        • kit9 says:

          Oh, and want to mention that I had always really liked Jason. He seemed like a really great guy. But, I thought all their divorce drama was over custody of Bryn. I actually thought their divorce was final already! Oops. So to find out it’s not over and he’s STILL in their(her)apartment and that he’s fighting the pre nup he signed-meaning he wants a chunk of her empire after less than 2 years of marriage-was very disappointing and wrong, imo.

          • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

            Kit when I hear about some actual above c/d level celebs and how long their divorces actually take – this doesn’t shock me. But maybe just me

      • No I disagree. Her business was doing well but he helped her with her long range vision and helped put together the deal with Jim Beam.

        He played college basketball, was a personal trainer, but was a pharmaceutical rep when they met.

        Regardless of HER motivation to bring him into the business- he partnered with her and the two together, IMHO, made a great team.

        I’ve always secretly thought that she was so abrasive she could have never done that deal without someone to run interference for her.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          She has a partner-HE brokered the deal. She knew that having a man do the deal would get it done-women do not do well in the liquor business. Jason didn’t make deal.

        • kit9 says:

          From what I’ve read there was one key person that helped Bethenny secure the Beam deal and it wasn’t Jason. He wasn’t qualified to do that on any level. He didn’t know spirits business. He didn’t know contracts. He was a salesman for a pharma co. I also don’t remember him being the one to suggest she branch out to other products. Bethenny was a wholefoods chef and already had a line of health conscious foods so going into other health conscious foods-ie Skinnygirl nutrition bars, etc. was a no brainer.

      • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

        He was in big pharma. My friend makes over a quarter million a year just being a measly rep. Not saying I know how much he made.

        And what a great way to help a guy’s ego (and not saying this is just for her – most women know men have the most sensitive egos ever) – because everyone knows B is so sensitive and totally in tune with the men in her life. >>> ask him by almost berating him to come work for her.

        Barf💀

    • Dwight Schrute says:

      I don’t feel bad about Jason.

      Admittedly he’s acting poorly but Bethenney started it and he’s simply reacting in kind. I seem to recall that in one of her first filings she was expecting him to pick up HER expenses such as covering her health insurance and other items while they are separated.

      If she had control of all the purse strings and pulled a hostile stunt like that on me I admit I would have taken the gloves off at that point, too.

    • Limespider says:

      Bethenny used Jason as much if not more to further her career as he used her. He may or may not have contributed much to her Skinnygirl booze line which netted her millions of dollars, but he did give her a major boost in the likeability department. New York woman finds love, marriage, a baby, and business success. Without him she wouldn’t have gotten her spin-offs, Bethenny Getting Married and Bethenny Ever After, and she wouldn’t have her beautiful daughter. Her appeal as a successful woman having it all is what got her the talk show. And I’m sure the implosion of her relationship with Jason is what inspired her new book “I Suck at Relationship So You Don’t Have To.”

      She lost major points with me during the custody battle with Jason. Bethenny wanted full custody of Brynn, meaning she could move Brynn away from the New York area (at the time to California where she wanted to shoot her talk show) which would have effectively cut off Brynn’s relationship with Jason and his parents. As Bethenny has stated many times before, she claims she had no parents or was raised by wolves. So it astounded me that she would want to take away from her daughter a loving father and grandparents and doom her to grow up the way she did. Think what you like about Jason, but I don’t think her has ever been portrayed as a bad father. I think Bethenny was very delusional and pig-headed to think she would win full custody when she went to trial to decide the custody. She painted an ugly portrait of Jason in that trial, but it made also didn’t make her look too pretty herself by parading their issues for all the world to see, and a shared custody agreement was worked out a few days into the trial.

      • cdnfillie58 says:

        ^^^^^^^ true dat

      • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

        Of course- this egocentric only child manipulative histrionic drops friends all her life and only gets her way. Only.
        Bulldoze over anything and everyone.

        AMEN 🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌

      • kit9 says:

        I completely disagree. Bethenny was a fan favorite years before he ever came on the scene. She already had 2 best selling books.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Primary custody doesn’t mean you can just pack up and move across the country with your child-I don’t know who decided Bethenny wanted to do that but I have never seen it written that it came from her. I think Jason put that out in the beginning when he was leaking other stuff to ROL.

      • Sus says:

        I completely agree with you. I can’t stand it when parents try to keep their kid away from the other parent. Of course there are situations where it’s warranted but unless there’s abuse then you have no right to do that.

        Bethenny is an emotional mess. Brynn is going to be an emotional mess if Bethenny won’t let Jason have a part in raising her. I can’t believe after everything Bethenny has said about her father being absent that she would even think about trying for full custody.

        Bethenny gave her marriage 10 minutes to work. She says that she knew it was never going to work and that was that. If she had gotten off TV, moved to the middle of nowhere for a year and then said it wasn’t going to work, I’d have more respect for her. I think she’s too selfish to share her life with anyone. That’s fine But she made a baby with him and now she needs to realize that she’s tied to him no matter what and needs to do the best thing for Brynn.

  30. Mimisfbay says:

    Indeed! She was having a meltdown and it sure seemed he was reluctant. I wonder why there are no flashback tapes?

  31. Mimisfbay says:

    Sonja seems more delusional these days. I can’t believe I am watching Ramona being so vulnerable while Sonja circles back to make the conversation all about her! Ah, I have so missed the crazy!

    • Foxymel(Mel) says:

      Yes!! It seems like Ramona and Luann will actually hit it off? Poor Sonja is delusional like always. Filming with her interns whilst she gets a mask treatment from her facialist–beyond pretentious.

      • kit9 says:

        lol! I know! Sonja really lives the saying, fake it till you make it. Sonja really seems to think that if she keeps up appearances(ie, wasting tons of money, lying) that success will eventually fall into her lazy lap.

  32. BellsOn says:

    If Bethany would have been mellow and given her marriage time to develop I think she could still be happily with Jason. I’m a person who believes that I’m responsible for my own happiness. I mean if I’m in a rough patch with my husband I get happy being with my friends and kids. I also work on getting along with my husband . I mean if I tore apart my family every time my husband annoyed me we’d be divorced a hundred times over instead of being happy partners and parents. Marriage is work and compromise and it’s not a fairytale. Bethany was too quick to throw away the father of her child. It’s so sad to watch her now. Until she fixes her own volatility there’s no hope for her being in a stable relationship. She should have taken her millions and enjoyed the good life with her new beautiful family. I remember when she was telling her hairdresser friend that she would have custody of Bryn if anything happened to her and Jason ; I felt that she wasn’t thinking like a married woman. Jason has loving parents who Bethany should have embraced or at the very least tolerated and of course in my mind you bequeath your child to family not new friends. I love Bethany but I’m really surprised that she didn’t see what kind of misery divorce brings. It will never end and I can’t imagine she’s happier now losing her home and 50% custody of her daughter. She should have plowed through and worked on building her marriage.

  33. JumpTheShark says:

    I am beginning to suspect that Sonja’s “interns” are really Bravo “extras” working towards their SAG cards. On another topic, I can understand why a Hotel would hesitate to provide Bethenny with an ice bucket.

    • That’s great on a resume!

      I wonder how the homeless girl in Ireland is doing? Prolly a CEO with Sonja’s steadying influence, right?

    • Stars99 #TeamT-Rex... All Day, Every Day!! says:

      Giggles at Jump the Shark – I hadn’t really thought of it from the angle that the hotel didn’t WANT her to have an ice bucket… lol… The whole ice thing was hysterical to me – because that’s always an issue for me and parties… I tend to ask a million people to bring ice so we don’t run out… So when she was complaining about it… The fact that she was in a freakin’ hotel presumably with ice machines put me over the edge… lol… Although, perhaps in that hotel the ice would me made out of shi shi shi water of some sort… lol

    • California35 says:

      Good point!! They probably use Bravo’s name not Sonjia’s hahaha i didnt think of that before lol
      I noticed that they were smirking. I guess they just laugh at her, and that made me feel bad for her. What we say here, everyone out there probably say of her. Oh well.

    Great blog Stars! I ❤️ NY and I’m so happy it’s back!!
    I thought it was a really good first episode.
    I like Dorinda so far and her daughter didn’t bother me. She probs felt awkward and acted silly…that’s what kids do!
    Ramona was the best-she seemed free and happy
    Sonja-NO. To everything! She’s starting off on the wrong foot!
    Countess is busting with confidence and I’m loving it!

  35. Exit4 says:

    I think Jason is a douche canoe. Whatever role Jason played in SG, which I don’t think was much, he was paid for-because it was his job. A job he no longer has. She brought him into the business so they could have a levelish playing field. Like partners and they could do things together. Make it successful together. She should have kept it seperate. He only wants that apartment because of it’s meaning to B. She still has the one they lived in before this one-he could live there. But no. That apartment was her dream and represents that she did it. She made it. She got it and she worked really hard for it. He knows this, he knows what it means to her and he’s taking it simply to be an asshole.

    I’m sure be married to bethenny was not easy! I don’t think she’s the marrying type and she really would have been better off just living in sin with him and see where it went.

    • I feel like we’re watching two different shows.

      IMHO, Bethenny has manipulated public opinion against Jason, who does no press and wants no part of reality TV.

      With all due respect? You don’t know what he knows or not. It’s all pure conjecture on your part.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Jason does plenty of press-the sneaky way …how else would we know that Brynn was hysterical crying when the movers went to HIS apartment to take Bethennys furniture? There have been many things reported in the press that came from Jason-he knows how to play the game too!

      • cdnfillie58 says:

        ITA…she took total control of creating HER apartment…I don’t think she took any of Jason’s wants into consideration. To me she’s getting bad feedback and she’s back on RHNY to gather sympathy and play victim. She has an agenda not sure what yet, but won’t be long.

        • Foxymel(Mel) says:

          Well, she has to plug her new Skinnygirl hummus, popcorn, toilet paper, etc.

        • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

          This is precisely WHY she’s on.

          She failed at the talk show. Then she was dating the alleged “rapist”, bad behavior at public events with random fans, then pajama-gate… ….. Then complaints about poor her ! No place to live – so sad ! 😪😪😪

          SG I thought I read was not doing so great.
          I’m sure the image / media handlers told her listen – we need you to revamp, we want you back out there.
          Since she can type her best selling crap on her iphone her pub probably said ok what’s the new angle — yeah !!! Relationships !!!! For sure !!!!! Bang it out in 3 weeks, thanks !
          Oh and yes, agree to your friend Andys show request – just don’t go to any supportive events of the other costars- do minimal filming, etc.
          Cry– TEARS work Bethenny ! Look at your friend Kyle ! Work it !! 💦💦💦💦💦💦
          You’ll be great and back in the good graces of the public STAT.
          Give it one season- come out smelling like a daisy -your edit won’t be bad, don’t worry! Your friend won’t be tough on you at the reunion, don’t worry!

          Then next year you’ll get your real goal- another solo show or some other deal.

      • California35 says:

        Very true, only they know what really happened and er only have seen what she let us see. ….. but he needs to leave, don’t you think? Braking up but forcing himself into her life and the house…. Its weird to me.

      • VV™ says:

        “IMHO, Bethenny has manipulated public opinion against Jason”

        ^^^^^^^

        So, so true and clearly seen on the last season of her show.

      • Exit4 says:

        If course I dont know for sure! But husbands and wives do tend to share their hopes and dreams. I remember when she got the beam deal and they were both emotional. She’s said publicly that she wanted the dream, success, family etc. What little I remember from BEA, she was clear about this being her dream apartment-and he was a little pissy. She gave him one room, I think. Which is the standard law of marriage. The entire house is mine to decorate and you get one room-preferably the basement. If I let my husband decorate-OMG. This is a man who almost slit his wrists in the Macy’s knife section while doing our wedding registry! Who got annoyed when I picked Wedgwood plates instead of the George Washington collection. Told another guy there “run man, just run” and when I let him take the gun-he registered for a movie theater sized popcorn machine and a giant suitcase-“big enough to hide a body”!

        Anyway, his refusal to leave had to have upset her. I’d put money that they fought over it, so his refusing to leave is being done to be vicious. I agree with JNNTJ-he plays the press, just more quietly. He’s not a public figure anymore but she is.

        • HAHAHAHA!! …big enough to hide a body!!

        • Ha!

          But you’re projecting your own marriage situation onto their marriage.

          My SO has amazing taste and we decorated together- the whole place not just a room or whatever her deal was so I guess I just have a different frame of reference.

          • Exit4 says:

            Maybe-but it’s seems most people roll that way! His interest level in dishes and towels was negative zero. But when it came to furniture and big stuff-He’d want to come along and I’d pretend to listen to his opinions. Although a few times he’s had a good choice or 2! A few years into the marriage it came to light that he really didn’t care what I picked out, he trusts my taste. His sole purpose was to monitor the prices! We were totally placating each other! He is a little salty I banished his baseball “they’re collectors items!” Plates to the basement instead of hanging them in the family room.

        • VV™ says:

          Bethenny didn’t even give Jason a room. The space he wanted to allocate his mancave Bethenny used to expand her closet. At the time, Bethenny told Jason that a bigger closet would add more value to the apartment in case they sell it.

          • Exit4 says:

            She was right about the closet-but every man needs a cave!

          • Barb (Just wondering in Jersey) says:

            I think she did give him a room but then took it back or made it smaller at least. He wasn’t pleased.

        • chismosa aka / Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

          yeah i know many church going people of faith who knocked up early and lived in sin and more! But they still define themselves as such… i can’t fight with them about it.
          It’s icky….

          I hadn’t known that his parents moved to florida- good for them. I have elderly parents and would want my kids to see them as much as possible because i will have waited a very long time to have had these kids. But that’s just me– and i own my weirdness 🙂

          I watched part of the reunion again last night and there was a shot of booble head that showed just how swollen her cheeks were and all I could think was wow what did she do to herself that looks painful. Her face was really really puffy. Why do women do that to themselves, they can’t possibly think that looks natural.

          • chismosa aka / Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

            Mrs P- in my opinion- she did her fillers too close to time of filming. When they have time to ‘settle in’ to her face- then it doesn’t look as odd.

            For instance, i saw madonna on a tv show last night and her face looked AHHHH-MAZING because she did not just go out and do the fillers on thursday! They have to time them correctly- and if they’re smart- they don’t go out in public too close to when they’re done!

            Plus imo she’s relatively young for all the fillers she’s getting. She may be doing them ‘preventatively’ but i think she’s doing them too much

            It’s a great cause and I happily donate to causes.

            • I can’t believe I am defending Booble but she has raised over $10k and has about $5k to go. BUT it took her a while to raise the $10k and my point up above is that in the past week she barely raised a thousand even with many appeals and cute kid pix on twitter.

      Oh and let’s note I have their Towaco home on watch, because according to numerous sources this should fall into foreclosure by I believe June. They haven’t paid a dime on the home in well over a year.

      • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

        Wait they have three nj properties ????

        You are amazing TRex. Thanks for all this

        I am going to try this weekend to do some extensive research on Lumann’s new sag harbor cottage (to me looks like a cottage )

        • T-Rex says:

          They have only one home not OFFICIALLY in Foreclosure and that’s the TowacoMonstrosity, which will be going probably into foreclosure in a couple of months. Their two other homes have been or are in the process of being auctioned by the banks

        Over a year?! Tre couldn’t sell a couple of her designer bags or go without a stylist for her court dates to make a mortgage payment?

        • T-Rex says:

          Or stop paying tens of thousands of dollars to video companies and PR folks to whore out your kid to help pay some bills. You know ConvictFelonJuicyJoe is NOT an invalid, and get his ass out and get a J-O-B. But he would rather spend his days drinking at a bar and flirting with, and “allegedly” screwing around with other women than actually get a paying J-O-B that requires him to “gasp” actually W-O-R-K

    • Exit4 says:

      Thank you! I swore I was going crazy! I dont have any memberships or anything like that-so I don’t see that notice on the page. I’m so glad you’re not gaslighting me! Lol.

      • T-Rex says:

        Exit, I was racking my brain as to why you couldn’t see the information, then I was on the page and it showed that I was “logged in” and I remembered that I have a membership, LOL!

        • Exit4 says:

          OMG-I went and took a guess as to what my password was (I signed up years ago to claim our home but never did anything-it still has the 8 year old realtors stuff!) I got it right and as soon as it logged me in-I saw the pre-forclosure! Completely changed the page! I’m cracking up, I honestly didn’t know which one of us was the crazy one! You’re seeing one thing, I’m not seeing it-we’re looking at the same info. Lol. Who knew I just had to log in?i never even thought to do that. I’m so dumb! I see too the Lincoln park house is in PF as well. It’s not surprising. If the auction went through-I’ll bet a developer bought it. They’ll knock it down and build new. That’s how it rolls at the shore. They’re not on the Island-but it’s on the water that’s a major selling point.

  45. Ok, I have Melbourne on in the background. I have been quiet on this season so far, but I really can’t stand Janet. She just bugs me even though I am mesmerized by her larger than life right nostril at times.

    • Veena (NMD) says:

      She’s such a mean gossip. And then she acts all innocent.

      • And is it just me or seeing a woman that age with a dragon tattoo tramp stamp on her back just makes me cringe.

        • California35 says:

          I was looking forward to Melbourne, but I only watched the first two episodes….it started too strong, didn’t it? Give us a second to enjoy before you bring the drama and gossip so quickly ladies!! For all I know the episodes got better, but I stopped watching. I may catch the re-runs….

    Good morning party people. OMG it’s supposed to be getting warmer but where getting colder. It’s 45 degrees. Turned the heat off a couple of days ago. It was cold last night. 😨 But you know how it is when you can’t get up to turn the heat on. You just get into a ball and finally go to sleep. LOL. 😃 Have a great day.

    • I know I wore fuzzy warm jammies last night because it was too cold last night – over this weather and the grey dismal skies are helping.

    • California35 says:

      Its been cooler here also. I am suspecting the body aches are because I am so cold at night. Yes I have a heater yes I have more blankets, but lie you said….Im in bed and I just dont want to get up 😛

    I did get my Peeps for Easter. Any of your kids or grandkids love Peeps and hot chocolate? I read that Peeps are good in hot chocolate. Makes sense right? I just did it and it’s yummy. Gotta see if I can get some more Peeps before they’re gone. 😋☕🐥

  48. lila1star says:

    I will begin this with IMO–
    I use to be a big fan of B and even Jason. I never missed a show they were on. It is no secret Beth had many emotional issues of which Jason was totally aware of.
    Beth spent her adult life climbing the ladder so to speak–chef school to martha stewarts apprentise. Just as she was about to take off with her Skinny Girl along came Jason, marriage and baby.

    2 spin offs later we begin to see the chinks in this fairy tale. Jason the mama boy and Beth incapable of understanding extended family. To be fair imo Jason did not seem to want to do anything that did not include his parents.
    On that infamous boat ride Jason told the therapist he was just messing with Beth and didnt mean anything by it at which the therapist said he was passive- agressive and pushed Beths buttons on purpose with the intent to hurt.

    Be that as it may–IMO Beth wanted Jason as a partner in the business–ego stroke or not she felt they should be equal partners.
    Now it gets wonky–Beth looses baby number 2 (a boy) and Jason went off the deep end at Beth when she through him a surprise B-day party. What actually happened–I do not know only that Beth stated it was the cruelst she had seen from him. About then is when I got off the Bethanney train.
    IMO I think Jason was taken back at how fast B jumped ship on the marriage and may contribute to his dragging the divorce out–dont know.

    As far as bravo and B is concerned–she approached them wanting another solo show and Andy came back with NY as a stepping stone to that goal. Just my thoughts….

    • HuskerHuny says:

      I think we can all agree that two wrongs never make one right. Bethenny, by her own admission, sucks at relationships. It’s easier for her to walk away instead of stay in the fight. She got Bryn, she got the huge business deal, she got her talk show and she thought she got her dream home. She just didn’t want the husband part. Jason wanted a traditional marriage and unfortunately, he married the totally wrong girl. Lots of blame and mistakes on both sides here. I fell off the Bethenny train at this point after being a huge fan, but I can see that no one is or was perfect in this relationship. I’m a traditional kind of girl and that’s why I tend to see Jason’s side more clearly. Living like a gypsy would not work for me, but that’s how Bethenny was raised and that’s her normal and how it seems like it will be Bryn’s normal too.

    • California35 says:

      Yes Lila, I remember it that way also… i am still her fan… I still see her faults or whatever, I saw Jasons also.

      They got married too soon and they had all kinds of things in the mix, tv show, the book, the baby, the business, no privacy, too many people in the house, the office at the house. We have seen how B is, but we didnt see or (know) him. We got to know him and we saw things we liked about him and didnt. Example, the parents. It was so nice to see him so close to his parents and see how sweet they are…but hang out all the time? So yeah she had no family trying to hang out all the time I get that….but the other hand B’s people were around all the time. So any ways, just one example of what I saw and considered. Would I like this in my relationship? So with all of that, imagine the etress, the sleepless nights, the over fully schedule. She was not ready to focus on a relationship and at first I thought he knew that…take it easy and be patient IF they talked about it and made a plan and an end date to finish all of that, but the communication deteriorated and the stress or whatever started to take over more and more. Then we if we add anything else we did not see…

      • mrs peabody says:

        I thought one of the first mistakes was having her office at home, the home should have been the home. That apartment was to small for all those people. She could have rented another apartment and had her office in that one and still had a bedroom for her baby. I personally could not have stood having all those people in my personal space like that.

        • Powell says:

          Yeah Mrs P. When the apartment was purchased right away there should have been an understanding that it’s their home, not an office. She wanted to have Bryn close by. I get that. She could’ve rented another apt in the same building for the biz. That would have solved that. It didn’t seem like they compromised. He wanted to see his parents every weekend. No ifs, ands or buts about it. She wanted to work in the apartment. She got what she wanted.

    • Powell says:

      Jason loved his BD surprise. Had a fantastic time. What did B do? Not invite his parents. Well DAMN! Her B thinks a fantastic golf trip w/his boys would be a great BD. She also thought he was wanting to spend his BD weekend w/his parents. Not to invite his parents on the golf trip. That was selfish of Jason. I don’t think he ever apologized to her for that.

  49. JumpTheShark says:

    I wonder if Jason is holding on to the apartment in order to give Bryn some stability; since she’s lived there her whole life.

    • Exit4 says:

      The only reason bethenney moved out and is kind of temporarily nomadic is because Jason wouldn’t leave. Had he left, bethenney would have lived there with Bryn. So no-he did the exact opposite! Made more turmoil.

      • mrs peabody says:

        Maybe he wanted it to be a home for once and not a home/office

      • Not the only reason babe- by a long shot. She had a talk show in LA. Of course she would’ve moved out.

        • ladebra says:

          I thought the talk show was in New York?

          • Exit4 says:

            It was. It was originally supposed to be in LA, but I think Jason fought it. Which is understandable, my cousin was in a similar sutuation. So it was moved to NY.

      • lila1star says:

        yeah he did–maybe in part because he didn’t want this divorce. I don’t know–I just remember when he met her–he had seen her on TV and told her that when he saw her he had to meet her because he knew she would be his wife. His words–not mine. Not sure in the beginning there was the money for a NY office space??? But granted–the no privacy and chaos could not be good for newly weds–imo.

        At first Jason came off as super understanding of Beth and supportive. We saw that begin to change but after that the rest is speculation. Like someone said–enough blame to go around. However I do feel like beth wanted the husband but I am just not sure she was equipped for what it takes to keep a marriage–love for-ever and ever is a choice. A daily commitment to love even when the other is driving you nuts lol. For me–I fell for what I had hoped was indeed a fairy tale that would last and when it did not I was left upset at both of them.

        • Powell says:

          lila I believe she wanted the husband too. She wanted the stable family she never had but like you say she wasn’t equipped to handle it. She didn’t want to see her in-laws every weekend. She didn’t want to spend every holiday w/her in-laws. She wanted the 3 of them to build their own traditions. Jason was a guilt ridden son that had to live for his self and his brother IMO. I think that was self imposed. To me that guilt was his issue that he could have seen Bs psychiatrist for.

      • HuskerHuny says:

        Can I ask a question here? I, by no way, shape of form, am an expert on divorce, being the daughter of a couple who were married 51 years and me being married 34 years. But isn’t there some kind of penalty if the father leaves the family home while in the process of divorce? I’m assuming it’s different from state to state. But there’s something in my mind that makes me think if the father leaves the home, he is also giving up some (and maybe all) rights to his child(ren) and then it becomes the decision of the courts. I may be waaaay off in left field here, so please, steer me straight!

          Bethenney and Jason have settled the custody aspect. That was done a while ago. So that doesn’t apply to that now. He just won’t leave!

            OMG Exit I was just going to post this exact link!!! Holy crap!!

          • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

            I’m going to have to read this…..

            Thank you !

            I agree with the theory LilaStar posed that Jason was taken aback by how miss runaway bride just left the marriage. Just like she drops her friends …..
            She saw a problem and zippppp she’s out. 🏃🏃

            She KNEW she married a religious man. What part of this quickie divorce sounded like it would be easy for her ???? 🙇🙇🙇🙇

            I have a major “excedrin” migraine so while the lambs stop screaming …. I’ll read the link later – thanks for this !

            Oh and can’t wait to have me some lamb this Easter Sunday ! Yum 🐐🍖

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              What with the “religious man” stuff? Jason is suddenly a man of the cloth?? Religious men do not usually engage in premarital sex and or live in sin..they also don’t introduce women by telling them to to “take the stick out of their ass” and I’m fairly certain they don’t lives their lives on reality TV! Religious man? What in world? When did Jason become so religious? And where is that religion when he’s calling Radar on Line???
              I don’t know when Jason became a saint but I always questioned his motives-he went up to Bethenny while she was working-he knew who she was-he saw her working. He agreed to filming his life and all that entailed-people say Bethenny “used” him -maybe he used her too. Maybe he wanted a little fame of his own-ya know-to help spread the word of The Lord…or just to be famous!

              • HuskerHuny says:

                I think Chis meant religious in the way that it was important to Jason that Bryn be baptized in his church. Jason is no saint, but he was raised in the church and his parents are practicing Catholics.

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                  His parents could have breakfast with the Pope daily and that still wouldn’t make Jason a “religious man”…I didn’t see Jason praying and reading the bible or even acting slightly religious so I’m just confused where the “religious man” is? Just because he wanted to baptize his daughter doesn’t make HIM religious-I baptized both my daughters-but not because I’m a devout catholic or a “religious women”.

                  • HuskerHuny says:

                    I guess I don’t understand how you are interpreting religious. I just think Jason wanted to raise Bryn with Christian values as he was. I go to church, I read the Bible, I pray, I had my children baptized and confirmed, but that doesn’t make them (or me) anymore religious than any one else. It just means having a Christian foundation is important to him as it was to me. But I’m definitely no better or worse than anyone else because of it. That’s all!

                    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                      I’m not trying to talk about your values HH!! I’m only talking about what I saw from Jason. I just don’t know how anyone can say what Jason’s values are-I didn’t see him as religious person on the show-Thats my only point. He baptized his daughter-but so did Bethenny-does that make her religious too? How do we know it’s important to Jason for Bryn to have a Christian foundation? I didn’t get a Christian church going God fearing man when Jason was on my TV-but I guess some people did?

            • Powell says:

    • Powell says:

      If B lived there Bryn would have stability. He just wants to stick it to B. If you go back to the epi when B read the email that the Beam deal was done Jason said something regarding “her money” and B said “our money”. On camera he’s “I’m perfect”, “I’m the good guy”, “Its your success”, “I don’t want to work for you”, “You’re damaged”. When all along he’s got issues of his own and he thought he had a right to her money. Hey no one is perfect. B said from day 1 of HWs she had issues w/family, trust, & relationships. But she also said she was driven. Jason was a sheep in wolves clothing. He knew what he was getting into and he knew what he was going to do when that money came rolling in. Bs mistake was she got married. She never had to go that route. They could have had joint custody of Bryn if they decided not to live together or if they broke up.

      • Exit4 says:

        That’s what I think too. Just have the baby, live in sin, see where it goes and keep everything in her name. That would have been the smart move. I’d love to know exactly how the apartment ownership is set up. Is it an LLC, is it in a trust? With her money, it’s probably a more difficult legal set up then the average person.

  50. Interesting story. I wonder what else about the Guidices this guy is a source on…

    Exit4 ima need you to read between the lines on this one

    http://allaboutthetea.com/2015/04/09/teresa-giudice-stiffs-former-attorney/

    • Exit4 says:

      Who do you think the source is? I think its her crazy former crisis manager.

      • I think it’s the attorney himself and ROL is giving anonymity in exchange for tea. I thought immediately of the hotly contested raid story. It had some elements of truth, almost like someone who might have been there- but also had a vindictiveness of someone who wasn’t paid…

        • Exit4 says:

          I don’t believe that at all. Sorry. The guy is a well educated attorney. He was an AUSA. He spent a ton of time wading through the giudices crazy. AATT is trying to make it seem as if she’s not paying because she’s mad at him. Which she probably was or is, but regardless she still has to pay. If she isn’t or didn’t it’s because there’s no money and I’m sure her lawyer is well aware of that. I’m sure she’s not the only client to do so. Being a lawyer, he knows the multiple legal ways to collect the debt. There’s no reason to make up fake raid stories and all that other stuff to some gossip site or housewives blog. Honestly, he probably anticipated that bill going unpaid from the get go!

          • Right because only uneducated people are the sources for gossip.

            Ima hafta remember that.

            • Exit4 says:

              Obviously not, but an attorney isn’t going to tell some totally fake raid story or dumb gossip to Radar and potentially make an ass out of himself and ruin his professional credibility over an unpaid bill. The giudices aren’t worth that. He can just go to court and get a judgement on, if he thinks it’s worth the effort and expense.

    • Powell says:

      They owe everybody and their momma. Do we doubt they owe attorneys? I don’t.

    • T-Rex says:

      Okay, I think I told you all they were not going to pay a dime to those attorneys. HOWEVER, all of these attorneys knew they were dealing with deadbeats that don’t pay their bills and I am sure made provisions for that nonsense in the contracts that the ConvictFelons had to sign for representation. I, personally, don’t take anything at face value until it’s actually filed in the courts, until something is filed, it’s just threats and nothing more than that. All of these attorneys also knew they were going to get publicity from their clients by representing semi-high profile folks. Here is the rub, they owe the banks tons of money, they owe the courts tons of money. The Courts are going to get their money, they will garnish their wages from kingdom come until paid in full. Next folks that get money is the IRS, I don’t believe that the ConvictfelonJuicy’s will file tax returns yet again, they haven’t done so in the last 4 years, and since they think they are above the rules, probably will not file again this year. After those two folks the banks will get their monies, because when you take out bank loans, like these dolts, you sign something called a “personal guarantee”. which means, that unless you can file bankruptcy and get the loans mitigated your are responsible for 100% payback on those loans. I am sure the lawyers also received personal guarantees for their fees, no lawyer in their right mind would not have gotten what is called “secured” creditor status. SO, they will be in line for those fees, after everyone else above. When she gets out and she starts working again, I would bet that her salary will have a large chuck widdled out via garnishments for her unpaid debts.

      • Exit4 says:

        Don’t agree about them not filing taxes for the last 4 years. The reason being, they were under investigation for so long and they did get Joe on the tax charges, but I forget the years, prior to 2008 I think. If they weren’t paying at any point during their case, the US Attorneys office would have charged them for it, because they had access to the IRS records anyway. As far as this year goes, part of their plea is to cooperate with the IRS, but teresa is in jail. It would be up to Joe to take care of it, but I believe their attorney now has taken the reigns and will keep his client (teresa) clean.

      • Powell says:

        The attorneys got paid publicity which led to new clients. LOL

    • Powell says:

      • T-Rex says:

        I loved that the article expressed what we all know that DrunkDelusionalgreygardensSonja is a HOT MESS they used the words DELUSIONAL and I love that they interviewed her wherein she again shows she is one delusional-mess. First off, a REAL business-woman wouldn’t still be in bankruptcy after four years, have admonishments from the bankruptcy courts for her delays and mishandled paperwork, had her homes foreclosed on by the courts for not selling them and listing a home she doesn’t actually own on her documents(which has been removed, the colorado estate). Also, her home wouldn’t be a falling down mess that is worth half what it should be for that area, and STILL had not buyers!

  51. lila1star says:

    We have storms–that means a lot of green soon 🙂 Yeah but also means I have to get off PC but changing the subject a bit as I am not sure if I missed the reunion blog I wanted to ask–why did it seem as if Andy was giving BG and Kim a pass? I ended up watching both 1&2 together as I was to sick to watch part one last week and first I am not sure why it is 3 parts as they seemed almost the same and 2nd there was more commercials than show!

    All the questions Andy had were BG and Kim fans–none to anyone else or I missed it?? You should check out LR blog–2 sentences! I was hoping you all would clue me in as I am confused. I fear Eileen wont come back now that she is doing 2 soaps. If Yo is to sick–then we r stuck with BG and Kim? Eileen says there actually is some big reveals for next week–I don’t think I believe it.

    • Powell says:

      Hey lila. I hope you’re as 💯 as you can be.

      I didn’t think about it but just maybe Andy gave them so much time because he had 95% made up his mind that they were fired & throughout the reunion as they have made excuses and he heard validity from the other ladies he’s 💯% sure that’s the move he’s going to make. At least I hope that’s the reason. 🙂

      • Exit4 says:

        Totally valid! In his book he wrote that at last years reunion he knew carlton and Joyce were done. I have the book on my kindle-I’ll try to find his exact words.

    • ramonacoaster says:

      Yes, Andy teased about a smoking gun in the 11th hour and I have no idea what it could be. It could be something about Kyle’s kids, Lisa R.’s husband, who knows.

      • Orphan Black is on BBC America and it a kick ass series that starts season 3 this weekend. If you have amazon prime I think you can get all the episodes from season 1 & 2. I started last year and ended up binge watching. If the first episode doesn’t hook you then turn it off, but if it does – pop some popcorn and settle in. I got Powelly hooked last year so she is my clone from another mother – slight spoiler there!

        • designernailsdiana says:

          ohhh now I get it…. ok I’ll start watching it again.

        • Powell says:

          LOVE IT!! I caught most of season 1 too. I’m so looking forward to the sisters. We left off with a new little sister being introduced. 😀

  54. cdnfillie58 says:

    Something else bothering me about B…Brynn’s godmother and ex assistant? whatever happened to her and is she still in her life and what really happened between them???? hmmmmmmm!!!!

    • Julie?

      If I remember correctly- she got engaged to the guy back home. Gave notice to B. Who then said bit by things about her.

      Julie took the high road, got married and lives in east bum feck with her hubs. I think she has a kid now?

      Someone will be along shortly to correct me if I screwed any of that up.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      She moved back to Penn. to get married and have a family. She wasn’t cut out for NYC. -it’s not for everyone.

      • California35 says:

        Yeah or for the fast world of Bethenny.
        I hope they are still friends and or in good terms. And To be on Bryn’s life 😊.

        By the way the next assistant is also gone. She got married, no children yet. I was surprised, but I had been wondering ever since she posted she was getting married.

        Thr new girls she has now (on NY episode) seem like they are not as the old ones used to be. They seem more like employees. Them again we only saw them Briefly.

        • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

          The Indian girl — ?? She left too? I forgot her name– the one Julie was teaching before she left- she was with Bethenny as the tv – show was being finalized and the move to LA was coming.

          I have to look her up.

      • Sus says:

        I don’t know why I think this. I may have made it up. I thought Bethenny gave her a million dollar bonus.

  55. ladebra says:

    I just can’t get excited about NY 🙅 omg new emojis! Wait, as I was saying, I can’t get excited about NY… Or ATL… Or the Nene and Kim road show, or Shahs 😢 I think I’m ready to quit Bravo. But wait! I forgot about Melbourne!

    Never mind😜

  56. HuskerHuny says:

    IT’S FREAKING SNOWING OUT!!! It’s supposed to be in the 60s tomorrow and 70s on Saturday. For real?

  57. Barb (Just wondering in Jersey) says:

    Powell, someone said my least favorite word and it wasn’t you. 😀

  58. Amalfi says:

    Hello peeps – haven’t seen you in a while.

    Seriously Bethany wants to reprise the “I’m homeless and my biological clock is ticking” role again? Sorry Beth — you’re successful, wealthy and you have a beautiful daughter — find a better story to tell about yourself than rehashing this one.

    It does bite that she had to give up that gorgeous apartment — it was her dream and 100% her doing. Divorce sucks, I suppose.

    • ramonacoaster says:

      I hope she doesn’t keep shedding tears about her life for the rest of the season.

    • mrs peabody says:

      Have they settled on who is getting the apartment? Why renovate another one if she might still get that one. Even if she doesn’t get it she has enough money to do another one.

  59. TexasTart says:

    Just saw Bette Midler on Ellen and she is amazing at 69! Bethenny is on now….

    • TexasTart says:

      Still can’t get over how timeless Bette is. Okay, so Bethenny only got about 6 minutes. Can not think of anything new or important she said. But Ellen – always the comedian – put her hand on the book at the end of interview and said “this (the book) confirms that I chose the right path in life.” (referring to being gay) LOL!

  60. SerenaNYC says:

    Brandi sure sends out a lot of mixed messages about “quitting” or being fired. At this point I really don’t know. Andy seems to be liking her…

  61. I just had a horrible thought. What if Rambles uses Lips text threats as leverage to come back? I mean could Evolution/Bravo look like the are condoning Lips behavior if they keep her and don’t bring back Rambles?

    • Exit4 says:

      They’ve condoned Brandi for how many years? Their bar isn’t set too high! Lol! Does anyone know what the texts are about and what started the whole thing?

    • serenanyc says:

      I feel like they won’t fire anyone because of the double-standards. If they fire Kim & Brandi, they look like they’re condoning Lisa R’s violence. If they fire Lisa R or Eileen, they would look like they’re condoning Brandi’s violence.

      • Exit4 says:

        The sole purpose of these shows is to make money. So they’ll keep or fire whoever they think will accomplish that. Double standard or not. Brandi is so disliked at this point, I think they’d worry more that people will stop watching if she stays. Once people turn off a show-they tend to not turn it back on. Kim has a shot to stay even in a limited role. Teresa flipped a table, pushed her boss and went to jail and we know she’ll still be back! Lol!

      • I just hope they don’t keep Booble and Rambles

  62. Exit4 says:

    Jill! It was skinny up there. With Jason and the religion, I think he’s probably like me. My parents were way more into church and religion. My mom goes everyday! I show up on holidays and only to appease her. But I don’t go regularly and my parents stopped bugging me about it around 25! I got married in the church, had the kids baptized, joseph is getting his first communion, he goes to CCD and the little one will start off in catholic school. They’ll get all their sacraments. It feels wrong not to do those things! I believe in all of it, I just don’t go to mass. I think Jason’s parents are similar to my parents in that they could let the mass thing slide-even not marrying in a catholic church-but would be so upset if he didn’t expose the kids to any of it. So, it’s like a combo of guilt from his mom and dad (people their age probably still believe that unbaptized babies go to limbo, not heaven) and the feelings of obligation to what you were brought up with. I don’t think he’s religious at all! About as religious as I am. Catholic guilt is a confounding thing!

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Bethenny and Jason weren’t married in church and they lived together before marriage -with her knocked up -so all of that leads me to believe that Jason isn’t “religious”
      (I get the guilt thing! I baptized my girls-for my Father!!)

      • Exit4 says:

        Werent his parents mad about that? About getting married in the church? I don’t remember! They wouldn’t have been allowed to anyway, depending on the priest! Her being knocked up had to thrill them!

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          I’m sure once Jason knocked up Bethenny the church wedding was off the table!! Although I’m sure there are plenty of Catholic girls that walked down the aisle with a bun in the oven!!
          I don’t believe that the divorce is dragging on b/c Jason is a religious man-it’s dragging on because Jason wants to get PAID!!

          • Exit4 says:

            That’s the truth about catholic girls! lol. It happens. He so wants to get paid! I’m all for the guy getting what’s fair, but I think he’s being petty.

        • Orson who doesn't own a circus or any monkeys says:

          Um, I believe Bethany is Jewish. That makes any of her children Jewish too. And I don’t believe the Catholic church will marry couples unless they agree to raise their children as Catholic.

    • I dunno.

      I’m not perfect.

      Isn’t that what church is for? To help you get closer to God? And to live your life in a “religious” way?

      It doesn’t mean there no out of wedlock children, or no anger or no mistakes.

      Because if it did? The churches would be empty.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Idk what church is for? I guess it’s for whatever you need it to be. I’m not understanding what makes Jason “religious”-that’s all. I asked Chis because I never saw Jason as someone who was dedicated to his faith-some have I guess.

  63. mrs peabody says:

    Guess what, Kyle has a new blog up

  64. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Now I’m waiting for Brandi to throw Kim under the bus in a tweet! She will say “Kim told me Kyle did XYZ so that’s why I wrote it in my blog-it’s not my fault KIM lied”…that’s how Brandi take accountability for every single stupid ass thing that she does…blame someone!!!

      • kit9 says:

        I honestly don’t think Brandi cares any more about anything approaching the truth or accountability. It’s a war and she’s willing to do anything. So, take a page from Kim’s Book of Completely Imaginary Accusations for the Purposes of Smearing Someone. The season is over, the reunion is over and done. So, throw out something she knows she’ll never have to answer for. Even if she comes back to the show, it will be months from now, so just go out in a blaze of lying glory.

  66. chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

    Jill/ Ashy:

    My call on Jason being “religious” – is just as Husker had said and I would say all my irish catholic “devout” churchgoing friends are.
    I personally had a big issue in high school having friends who were engaging in premarital sex and were not completely opposed to the idea- as unfortunate as it may be- of abortion. These were weekly- church going, special holy day – church going (annunciation, assumption, etc) people. Yet THEY were the “devout”.
    I count jason as one of these.

    When B got pregnant (whoopsie??? 😶) i would bet anything it was Jason who wanted to get married before the baby came. Now, not in a church — that was odd to me – but fine.
    {{I still am working to reconcile to this day how my very “church-going” old school R.C. mother got married in CITY HALL and only AFTER being pregnant with me 12 years later did they then go to a priest. Ughhhhhh.
    Interfaith – sort of- and I think major family secrets that I do not know of to this day- FRUSTRATINGLY! }}

    So when I use the term “religious” – I use it I suppose—-Lightly ???
    I consider my very RC friends religious as they go to church on all days mentioned above, abstain and give up during lent, observe the Fridays, etc– and are ADAMANT about voting on the pro-life ballot. We can’t even discuss religious things -they get too riled up.
    However these fools were getting it on in high school and drinking and defying their parents worse than possibly the public school gals!!!

    So for me —- as I grow into an agnostic – I only adhere to wanting to christen my kids for my parents’ sake/ tradition’s sake/ the beauty of the event (not done with 50 other kids)- and I’m going to mass tomorrow night and Saturday night until 2am for my dad. Plain and simple. Do I consider myself religious? Maybe spiritual but my left brain just works too hard against it.
    I read once it’s a fact that the more advanced degrees someone has from post college, the less religious and less conservative they become. Don’t know – but I do want to continue on in something post-undergrad one day hopefully.
    I digress !! —–

    But i want you to see where I’m coming from.
    That’s why I label jason as such. I don’t think I’m wrong.
    I don’t think he was a VIRGIN until whatever – but in my warped eyes of 12-13 years of catholic school hardcore training- yes I find him “religious”.

    JMHO
    JPPHO also

    • Exit4 says:

      Was your dad catholic? Or Greek Orthodox? I know for a long time those churches were at odds with one another.

      • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

        Dads greek.
        Yes the church split and the G.O. church adheres closer to what it was like in Jesus’ day — how the sacraments and things are done.

        Actually there are eastern catholics who are catholic but follow the sacramental procedures of the orthodox.

        Mother’s the devout latin roman catholic.

        Funny thing is I learned those two faiths are closer than catholic is to even any other branches of Christianity – so it’s the least difference – If you know what I mean. (Closer than catholic to Protestant, in other words)

        Greeks don’t believe one man is the end all and be all – Pope – then it was a break about the Holy Spirit and if it’s part of God in the trinity or separate — it was called the great schism or something.
        My mother actually prefers the greek masses – I think it reminds her of the “good old days” of mass in latin, formal, and people actually not wearing jeans or shorts to church.

        I saw your comment after I posted — im totally with you ^^^^
        You’re saying it far better than I am. (Unsurprisingly)! 😜

        • Exit4 says:

          My roommate in college was Greek on her mind side but not her dads. Both her dad and step dad were catholic. Her and her mom went to both churches-but I can’t remember now why. Some of her other Greek relatives did that as well but some just went to GO. In a freaky coincidence-we realized that her catholic priest is a relative of mine! My dad had family in Delaware, she was a Delaware native. She married a 100% Greek guy-GO church, I think he was born in Crete. I never went to a Greek wedding before, it was soooo long! Lol. But her catholic priest (my relative) was on the altar and gave a blessing. They made a brief mention about how it was wonderful to share an altar and make peace. At the reception I asked my relative (it’s my dads cousins son-my dad was an only so his cousins were like his brothers and sisters) what that meant and he didn’t get into it too much-the schism-but he said the main Catholic Church and the main GO church in Wilmington were across the street from each other and many years ago there was a lot of petty strife and arguing between the 2. I guess the religion morphed into personal, silly stuff but years before it would be hard to imagine a GO and catholic priest sharing an altar. Although that might have just been these 2 parishes, it seemed like there were global issues as well.

          • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

            I’m sure it was petty stuff just between the two physical parishes.

            How fun that your relative was the priest —- that is always so nice ! And what a coincidence !!!!
            You didn’t like the wedding ? I know it’s long but it’s such a lovely ceremony. I think the full mass attached made it extra long LOL. I know some catholic weddings don’t have masses said.

            There rarely are issues between Rome and the Orth church.
            The lovely new pope even made such a wonderful gesture with our “leader” of the church – the Patriarch in turkey (he’s not the end all be all, just leader among leaders). It was so beautiful to see.
            The break- so to speak – is really based in the theology and origins of how Christianity first spread and grew.

            I should note – neither of my parents converted. And I believe my father would be allowed to receive communion at a catholic church but my mother is not allowed to receive at the Greek church — I believe (this is what my catholic friends tell me) the catholic looks to the Orth. to “take the lead”. For instance – I think a Orth could get married in a Catholic Church but not vice versa. I think that’s the only reason I got green-lit for a first communion and confession, and confirmation. I know my mom had to ask our school to look into it since I was not baptized catholic.

            Ok enough on all that! JASON started it !!!! 😄

            PS——- is your eldest receiving his first communion this spring?
            Or youngest? I need your HELP! My bestie’s son is receiving his and I don’t know what to give to a boy !!!!!……..I didn’t think Id be invited thinking she was doing something super small but I was. Her mom is also newly surprisingly pregnant so it’s such a fun time.
            HELP !
            I’m thinking I need to go to Ramonas true faith line — she has gifts for communion but I don’t want to support MARIO! Lol

            • Exit4 says:

              That Jason (aka Jesus Hoppy) is a real pain in the ass isn’t he??? 😉

              My oldest is making his communion. He has a cross, I’m giving him my communion rosaries and my dads St. Josephs medal. My mom is getting him a little plaque from the religious store with the date engraved and $. Not sure what my MIL etc. are doing, but my aunt is sending him ride tickets for the Ocean City Boardwalk. We’re not doing a party or anything-we’ll just go to lunch after with the family. I let him choose where to go. His choice? Red Robin. That’s what happens when you let a 7 year old choose a restaurant. You don’t have to get a religion themed gift just because it’s a communion. We already have kid bibles and all that stuff-you get inundated with that at baptisms and so forth! Just find out what he likes-and give him that. Or just money in a communion card. Joseph loves getting money-he makes me take him to target to pick out something he likes! If you want something more with a communion theme try things remembered. Do you know that store? They have all that kind of stuff and you can engrave his name and dates.

              • chismosa / aka Bethenny's #1 Fan says:

                thanks a MILLIONNNNNNNNNN

                jotting all this down! You’re right. He was inundated with lots of good religious items at baptism- so it would be redundant.
                Especially as she’ll have the christening of the next child soon enough!

                I should just get him something ‘fun.’

                THANK you! xo

  67. Stars99, I tried to comment sooner, but kept getting interrupted and so here I am, way down the page. I do want to say I enjoyed your blog so much, had me laughing and laughing!

    Now sit down….. Captain and Tennille broke up!

    Also, you MUST keep “THE SONJA ZONE”! It’s BRILLIANT and sooooooo perfect: It’s where she lives and we’ll be seeing lots of it this season, no doubt.

  71. Melbourne is driving me nuts – Gamble’s voice is so annoying. I would love to see a picture of Pettifleur when she was young – is she one of those broads who was really stunning young and pampered and doesn’t realize that she has gotten old and can’t get away with what she use to? Oh crap I just saw Janet’s right nostril – you could shelter a family in there…

  72. ladebra says:

    I believe her. I think Jason lives to make her life miserable. And I don’t think much of his father, who should know better.

  75. OMG, hep me JEZUZ!

    Divorce, religion, money, property, who gets what, who deserves what?! And the poor child. How does the poor child feel when she has two adult parents who can’t manage to have millions and share a life to raise her without trying to destroy each other AT THEIR AGE?

    It’s beyond my comprehension. WTF is it that will make these people happy? What is it that they GIVE TWO CHITS ABOUT, other than themselves?

    Whewwww. Give me an effing break. They should be ashamed of themselves. HOMELESS MY AZZ! When you live under a bridge and eat in a soup kitchen, instead of in Presidential Suites and gourmet cuisine you spit out, then talk about being homeless, you spoiled disgrace to your daughter!

    • BellsOn says:

      Totally! Marriage is work. I think this divorce is insane. Thank God I stayed with my husband and father of my kids through SERIOUS stressful issues and have a happy nuclear family. Bethany chose to blow up her marriage and that has consequences. Horrible ones.

      • lila1star says:

        I am not a fan of either anymore but Beth didn’t blow up her marriage. Jason and Beth blew up their marriage. Since neither claims one or the other had an affair (a one sided deal breaker) it takes two to rumble.

        The above nonsense Jason tossed Beth’s way is exactly the kind of cruel actions we began to see from him before they went off the air. No angels here and certainly not JH any more than BF.

      • So true. I just can’t imagine what Beth thinks Jason should have done. Handed her the keys to everything, kissed his daughter goodbye, and never looked back? Which is pretty much what she seems to have wanted. I wonder if she has any idea how damaged she is from her own parents, with her father not being active in her life. You’d think she would, since she talked about it all the time.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Considering the fact that Jason has spent 2 years fighting the prenup I think it’s obvious what he gives two chits about….getting PAID!!

      • Divorces involving children and lots of money often go on for years. There’s one in my state that has gone on for a decade.

        I personally have never read the suits or seen the pre-nup, I have to admit. But someone said it was signed after the marriage. If true, obviously Beth was already thinking of leaving. If Jason feels he was being set up when he signed it, I don’t blame him for fighting it.

        I don’t understand why some think Jason is some kind of bum. He had a job when he met Beth, which many of us would find quite a good one. It didn’t bother her then, did it? He was on her series and he was integral to all of it–remember the groom? The birth of THEIR child? All of that was part of “her brand” image-building, in my opinion. I certainly thought of them as a married couple with a family, building a family business. It seemed that way to me because I saw him involved in it on many levels.

        This is just my opinion. I don’t expect anyone to agree. It might change, as well. These women flip flop so much through the years, I can hardly believe they are the same person.

    • ladebra says:

      I’m divorced. I would do it again a million times. I was married to a guy who also said divorce me and I will ruin you. I would divorce him two million times.

      • I’m sorry you went through a bad marriage and divorce. It can take many years for the residual damage to dissipate.

        I’m not advocating for marriage at any cost. I’m not saying Bethenny should have stayed. That’s not my call.

        I also have been divorced. My first marriage was a nightmare.

        So I’m not against divorce. I do believe divorces can be ugly and bring out the worst in both parties. I know it was pure hell for me.
