On last night’s episode of Bethenny Ever After, Jason and Bethenny experienced therapy at sea and got lost among the waves. Luckily, their marriage survived intact!
First of all, let me say that the concept of sailing into your future is horrible and cliché. Yuck. Bethenny and Jason pick up where they left off last week, with Jason storming off the heliport. Bethenny just wanted an apology, but for some reason was unable to bring this up at home, before leaving, before the cameras were rolling. Hmmm… I wonder why?
Jason eventually agrees to get on the helicopter and go on the trip. Bethenny apparently spends the ride crying about her life, and when they meet up with Veronica–Bethenny’s “glammy”–in Nantucket to drop off Bryn, Bethenny fills her in on what happened. Question: Doesn’t Bethenny have a full-time nanny? Why is her hairdresser babysitting for the weekend? Why is Bryn always being watched by a zillion different Bethenny sycophants?

Bethenny Frankel is making the TV rounds promoting her marital meltdown on this season of Bethenny Ever After. This is no surprise for the woman who apparently thinks nothing is sacred – not even taking a pregnancy test.
First up, Bethenny hit up The Tonight Show to discuss how her marriage was a mess during filming, but luckily things between herself and husband Jason Hoppy have improved. “[The] second year was way more difficult than the first,” Bethenny explained. “I was pregnant when I got married, so we were all excited about the baby and the wedding.”
“The first two years are challenging, but now we’re coming into a better rhythm. We got married older, so we are accepting each other now,” Bethenny adds.
Bethenny and Jason’s dilemmas certainly affected filming as we watched them go from happy and exuberant, to miserable and testy over the course of three seasons. Bethenny is admitting they were both at fault for the problems and have learned how to handle miscommunication. “I’m an initiator of arguments,” Bethenny confesses. “And he’s the escalator.”
“I’ll light that fire, and then there’s a big fire and I’m like ‘Oh my God, who put that fire there, what happened?’” Luckily the couple has been in therapy and they are learning how to treat each other.
And despite incessant rumors that the two are headed for a divorce, Bethenny insists that couldn’t be farther from the truth. “We’re together, we’re committed, we work on it, and we’re in love. And we’re in it.”
Unsurprisingly, Bethenny is giving credit to the infamous lost at sea-gate for their reconnection. The reality star appeared on Anderson with Anderson Cooper today where she once again insisted they were really, truly, honestly lost at sea and the Coast Guard really, truly, honestly came to their relief – or were at least called.
“We got on it at 6 at night, it was freezing, we were in Block Island, we were laying down, my husband got terrible sea sickness and all of a sudden I felt a big crash. A wave hit us and we were in 10 feet of water when we should have been in 150 or some big number of feet, and the GPS went out and the next thing you know I heard the captain saying, ‘Maria Cristina to the Coast Guard,’” she recounts of her harrowing experience of 15 minutes without a GPS. What did they do for centuries, I wonder?
Bethenny insists the episode was very real to her and regardless of the true severity of the situation, she was extremely nervous.”We were freaking out. We were with my camera crew and I was like, ‘Oh my God this is about them too.’ One of the guys can’t swim, we were panic stricken,” she insists.
“So, by the way, to hear someone say that it was fake was very insulting because I was freaking out. … the whole thing was horrendous.”
The positive of the trip was that she and Jason actually communicated and learned to rely upon each other. Maybe that was all part of Dr. Amador‘s evil plan? Maybe he faked getting lost at sea?! “The good news, we did not argue — my husband and I — we actually got along very well. No one blamed anybody for dragging them on this ship of fools,” Bethenny recalls.
Bethenny’s appearance on Anderson was not limited to discussing playing Gilligan’s Island, the former Real Housewives of New York star also talked the beginning days of appearing on the show and all the changes that made her want to leave. “Well, when we first started it was way more fun. When we first started it was called, ‘Manhattan Moms.’ It was a totally different show, I didn’t know it was ‘Real Housewives’ — I wasn’t even a housewife,” Bethenny remembers.
“Then as it went on, people become more knowledgeable about what the show is and they watch other seasons and other casts and there is a preconceived notion of how to act. That’s different then when I started, when I started it really was fun — it was a new adventure,” Bethenny explains, echoing what viewers have noticed in recent years seasons of the Housewives franchises.
She admits she is glad she signed on, and of course, had some serious success because of her involvement. “I do have a respect for, well respect’s not the right word, I have a nostalgia for the five of us that started together. It did create so many opportunities for all of us and I can remember back to when it was me, Jill [Zarin], The Countess, Ramona [Singer].” What about Alex McCord – did Bethenny just block her out?
Bethenny also talked her own reality television guilty pleasure – Jersey Shore! “Well, I don’t even know why I do because it gives me anxiety,” she reveals. “I’m like it’s just so filthy … You couldn’t give me $10 million to lay in that smoosh bed, much less smoosh in that smoosh bed.”
While discussing reality TV, she had a very real mishap of her own! Bethenny managed to traumatize the audience when she full-on mooned them; revealing her hot pink panties during a dance contest with Anderson. For once, I don’t think was a plug for Lazy Lingerie or Skinnygirl Shapers or whatever it is she’s pimping now – I think it was a legitimate “Oops” moment and she handled it with dignity. Hey, at least she wasn’t wearing a thong! A clip of Bethenny’s intimate exposure is below.
And speaking of being shipwrecked, a new episode of Bethenny Ever After airs tonight where we will see Bethenny and Jason get lost amongst the waves during a therapeutic sailing trip to Block Island.
Bethenny Ever After airs tonight on Bravo at 9/10c.
DO YOU BELIEVE JASON AND BETHENNY WILL MAKE IT? DID SHE REALLY BELIEVE SHE WAS LOST AT SEA OR WAS IT A PLOT FOR HER SHOW? IS BETHENNY ACCURATE THAT THE HOUSEWIVES ARE ACTING ON RHONY?

On last night’s episode of Bethenny Ever After, Bethenny and Jason found themselves at an all-time low, as their fighting turned venomous and anguished. Interestingly, we also saw Jason put his foot down, refusing to let Bethenny sell out their marital woes on television. I love integrity in a man. Bethenny also learned that Julie may be thinking of moving on, and her apartment renovations got horribly off track due to miscommunication.
Bethenny is doing a shoot for People Magazine. She has invited some friends/employees to hangout/counsel her. Her poor hair dresser had a yoga top boob-malfunction, which was a super funny story and as a yoga zealot, I’ve often worried about the astray boob. Aaaahhh… namaste – not for the faint of heart!
Bethenny regales them with tales of Mr. Perfect Behaving Badly. Apparently, the Frankel-Hoppys don’t have much luck with 40th birthdays. Bethenny planned a special birthday weekend for Jason and all went divine until Jason expressed disappointment that his parents weren’t included. Which caused massive fighting. Bethenny feels she included them by setting aside a day on the weekend for him to visit with them. I feel for Bethenny – my feelings would be hurt, but I also understand Jason’s perspective.

Apparently,Bethenny Frankel‘s marriage is in even more trouble than we see on TV. The candid and inappropriate humor loving star can allegedly add “diva from hell” to her vast resume because that’s exactly what she’s turned into according to reports! Bethenny never denied being difficult but her demands have reached the intolerable level and she is now pushing husband Jason Hoppy over the edge!
Bethenny has always been a bit of a famewhore – like her or not, one doesn’t do a string of reality shows if there isn’t some level of fameitis in your bloodstream. Recently, her obsession with fame is escalating; causing some serious rifts in her marriage, as Jason would like to settle down, live the family life, and leave television behind. Bethenny has other ideas!
Bethenny’s success has definitely gone to her head and it’s affecting her marriage – which is closer to divorce than ever! “They had dinner with Ellen DeGeneres when they were in LA a few months ago, and Bethenny didn’t shut up. She treats Jason badly in front of her famous friends,” an insider Julierecounts to In Touch Weekly (via their print edition). “Now that she has the baby she wanted, she doesn’t need a reality TV husband.”
Many have suspected while watching this season of Bethenny Ever After that Bethenny has almost no time in her life for Jason, as she often complains about him and pushes him aside. Apparently, that’s closer to reality than fiction. In fact, Bethenny’s rising star is forcing her family to give up more and more family time for her career.
“I love Montauk so much. Having the freedom to run around with Bryn in the beautiful sun is something I cherish. We’re building memories to last a lifetime,” Bethenny writes in her Bravo blog. “Family summer days are our favorite.”
Sadly, for the Frankel-Hoppy fam, things won’t be as leisurely this summer as Bethenny, yet again, as an agenda to put their life on television! “This summer we’ll be in LA filming my talk show and we’ll miss it,” she reveals.
Calling allegations of marital strife and famegrubbing nonsense, an insider disputes that Bethenny and Jason are unhappy! “This is absolutely ridiculous! Bethenny and the word DIVA should never be in the same sentence,” Bethenny the source tells RumorFix.
“She works her rear end off, every day and all the time. She and Jason are extremely happy.” Interesting, because Bethenny herself has admitted both on television and in interviews that her marriage has been a challenge and they are working on things!
Moving on, tonight marks a new episode of Bethenny Ever After. Bethenny confesses that she and Jason are fighting, but have decided to go on the couple’s boating trip. Sadly, they get into an explosive argument while leaving for the boat and Jason storms off leaving Bethenny and Bryn behind! And again the question: Why do you want your marital implosion on TV?
Bethenny Ever After airs tonight on Bravo at 8/9c. A preview of the new episode is below!

TELL US – IS BETHENNY’S DIVA BEHAVIOR RUINING HER MARRIAGE? HAS SHE LET THE FAME GO TO HER HEAD OR IS THIS JUST MORE RIDICULOUS GOSSIP?

On last night’s episode of Bethenny Ever After the crew continued their vacation in Montauk, where Jason and Bethenny continued their passive aggressive marital meltdown. There were some cute parts (Cookie) but it was a lot of raw sadness in the form of a couple who seems genuinely at odds, but still love each other.
Things start out with Dwayne. Bethenny has a driver now – who also seems to double as a bodyguard. Is she afraid of Jill, now that she has been cast aside from reality TV? Why Bethenny can’t drive herself to Montauk is interesting to me… she did so last week. I guess she’s big league now, or a “baller” as Bethenny likes to say. Also on the trip is Bethenny’s Glammy. Does she own this Mercedes?

On last night’s episode of Bethenny Ever After, Bethenny had a girls weekend in Montauk where she confronted her daddy issues. She also wondered about Jason‘s vacations past as a homosexual. And we learn that Jason is finally growing part of a pair and putting his foot down about the home office situation by implementing a schedule!
Things start out with Bethenny meeting her new bestie Hoda for lunch. I do love Bethenny’s dress. The two have bonded over being very busy.
Over ordering Virginica oysters, Bethenny decides to inform both Hoda and the annoyed waiter that the menu options sound like her “wazoo” except nothing about Bethenny seems plump or balanced. Leave it to Bethenny to turn lunch porny. Good lord – she really needs to stop with the stupid, gross vag-talk. The waiter was mortified, which amused Beth.

Taking a break from her Skinnygirl empire, Bethenny Frankel hit the beaches of Miami this weekend with her husband Jason Hoppy and daughter Bryn!
The Bethenny Ever After star is pictured above showing off her bikini body yesterday in Miami Beach!
Bethenny, 41, is also pictured below playing with Bryn, who turns 2-years-old in May. In a recent interview with Life & Style magazine, Bethenny revealed that while the second year of her marriage has been “hard,” divorce is not an option for her, adding that she and Jason are doing much better these days.
And just last week, Bethenny shocked her fans when she revealed she recently suffered a miscarriage. Good to see her doing better and in happier spirits. More bikini shots of Bethenny are below!

It’s been a big week for Bethenny Frankel, but I’ve come to learn that every week is a big week when you’re a Skinnygirl with anything and everything on your plate…and that plate is seen by a gazillion viewers, followers, haters, and fans. Oddly enough (and I didn’t think it was odd at all until my dear friend–a true Fan-kel–pointed it out to me over cocktails), I have no opinion on Bethenny. Whatsoever.
I think she’s savvy and smart. I think she’s equally annoying. I love her clothes. I hate her brashness, but I think I’m secretly jealous of it. She is the one reality star that should push my buttons–good or bad–but doesn’t. That said, I am following her current reports much more closely because I am equal parts saddened by her heartbreaking news, intrigued by her ability to garner such strong reactions, and a ridic lover of bad daytime talk shows. Quite the combo!
After the new season of Bethenny Ever Afterpremiered Monday night, the reality maven was a guest on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live. In between drinking games and pleading the fifth, Bethenny spoke about her, much touted, new foray into the realm of daytime chitchat. Following this announcement on WWHL, The Hollywood Reporter expanded on Bethenny’s growing empire.
The star, known for her sharp tongue and keen business skill, revealed to Andy Cohen that her new talk show, Bethenny, will premiere June 11th on Fox. Citing the premise of her show, she opined, “Instead of watching my marriage, my sex life, my conversations about money, I want to involve you.” Hmmm, I am not sure I want to be involved in ALL that, but I’m curious nonetheless.
Bethenny continued, “It’s a girlfriends show, but it’s really honest…[j]ust what’s really going on, have an honest conversation without it being just me being in the fishbowl. I want to involve everyone in the conversation.” It sounds, well just fabulous! When she stated she planned on having celebrity guests as well, I was sold. Now if only I could quit my day job, so I can sit home to watch it…
The one-hour daily program is being produced by Telepictures Productions, with Bethenny and Ellen DeGeneres serving as executive producers. I do love some Ellen! The Frankel/Hoppy clan will be spending some time in Burbank, as that is where the show will be taped.
Additionally, it will get a special preview in test markets for six weeks. Those of you lucky enough to live in New York and Los Angeles will be among the first viewers. Wendy Williams was successful with a similar strategy. If Bethenny prevails on these selected stations, she will be in good company on the daytime talk circuit. It was reported that Jeff Probst, Katie Couric, and Steve Harvey will also be joining the increasing crowded world of sofa chats, cooking segments, and book clubs.
And speaking of book clubs, Madame Frankel has had three lifestyle and nutrition books to hit the New York Times’ bestseller list. She is now taking the plunge (get it?) into fiction as her first novel, Skinnydipping, will hit the shelves May 1.
While in the clubhouse, Bethenny also opened up about her recent miscarriage and some resulting health issues. Earlier Monday morning, she revealed her tragic ordeal on the TODAY Show when asked if she had plans for more children. A tearful Bethenny responded, “We were pregnant with a second baby, and at eight weeks, I miscarried.”
Understandably, Bethenny, who is the mother to 21-month-old Bryn with husband Jason Hoppy, has been struggling during such a difficult time. She shared, “There are so many…things that come with [miscarrying]. You go through a roller coaster of emotions…[a]bout your age, about being a woman, about, can you have another baby, are you a failure to your partner? You go through a million different things.”
On WWHL, she revealed to Andy, “As a result of [the miscarriage], I was on an antibiotic Doxycycline. I took it at night without any water, went to bed and it burned a hole in my esophagus. I have a hole in my heart and my esophagus.” She retorts, “But it’s okay — I’m feeling good. I wouldn’t be drinking a Skinnygirl Margarita if I weren’t feeling good!”
I’m glad to see she still has her signature cocktail and signature sense of humor. Our thoughts are with Bethenny and her family.
