LynnNChicago Bethenny Ever After
Bryn Hoppy might just be the cutest kid on the face of the earth! She was determined to hold her own popsicle, I remember those days. It’s hell on earth for an OCD mother who doesn’t want their clothes to get dirty but you have to let them do their thing! I think I just about overloaded on cute when she said, “hola” and “gracias” to the staff down in Mexico.
It’s Bethenny’s birthday celebration and it is quite a different celebration from last year’s fancy birthday party with dozens of guests that were clearly there for the cameras. Alex McCord and Ramona Singer were there with their husbands and Bethenny had a breakdown. This year, a trip to Mexico with her staff was more like it. If only there wasn’t that small problem of the constant arguing with her husband.
I was thrilled that we had no shopping trips for furniture or meetings with designers for the new apartment! The resort in Mexico looked amazing and the Hoppy’s seemed to enjoy their time there.
It was interesting though that the one day the cameras met up with Jason and Bethenny in their hotel suite to find them arguing, Jason avoided the camera and simply decided to stay in the hotel room with Bryn while Bethenny had lunch with her friend / babysitter Veronica. As the two ladies discussed Bethenny’s issues with her husband she decided to call him and ask him to come and join them for lunch. A peace offering extended to Jason but instead he came halfway to their lunch spot and sent for Bethenny, once again refusing to be on camera. Jason may have forgotten that Bethenny wore a microphone and while we couldn’t see him, we could hear him. He might also forget that even keeping his voice down wouldn’t stop Bravo! They put his words on the screen just in case you couldn’t hear them.
Bethenny finally convinced Jason to join her for lunch and they continued to banter a bit but managed to get through lunch while RaRa (Veronica) took care of little Bryn as was originally planned. ”is that your favorite salad?” Jason asked his wife. ”Is that what we’ve come to, discussing salad?” It sure looks that way but as Jason pointed out, you have to start somewhere.
I don’t know why, but I hate to see this couple argue. I much prefer it when they have little funny digs and laugh afterward, we see a bit of that on tonight’s episode but it’s brought down by the tension.
I was surprised to learn that this couple is only now working on their will, particularly since they seem pretty responsible especially when it comes to their baby girl Bryn. Parents need to have their wishes for their children in writing, it is critical. I’m a bit surprised at their choice of a caretaker for Bryn should anything happen to them, Bethenny’s good friend Veronica (RaRa) was chosen and I realize that she spends a lot of time with Bryn but why not Julie? Or Jason’s parents? Obviously Jason’s folks are getting up their in age and it was Jason who didn’t want to put such a huge burden on his parents but no one would love that kid more than her grandparents. I am sure RaRa is an excellent choice too and we’re told that she’s been friends with Bethenny for many years but I don’t remember seeing her in past seasons. Anyone else?
Bethenny’s birthday, she and Jason go for a couple’s massage and it’s a bit strange. I thought that usually meant two massage therapists give both of them a massage at the same time. Maybe Bethenny really is that cheap but they had one masseuse and the one who happened to be waiting for their turn actually had to help with their spouse’s massage, that’s just wrong! They could have stayed home and massaged each other! Ok, it’s sexy, if you say so.
Back on the beach Bethenny haggled with a salesman who was selling what looked like large pieces of fabric for $60 each. Bethenny was able to talk him into accepting $100 for three. Jason explained that his wife is “frugal” and loves to make a deal!
All dressed up and ready for Bethenny’s birthday dinner on the beach, Jason and Bryn give Bethenny an absolutely gorgeous necklace for her birthday, then they head out to join the ladies of Skinnygirl Inc for dinner.
Julie presented Bethenny with a priceless book of memories, a photo book of their life together over the past three years and all of the amazing things that Julie got to witness being in Bethenny’s life. All of Bethenny’s team wrote lovely messages to her in the book and she cried as she read them out loud. It was very sweet and they all got up and danced the night away…
Next week we’re still on the Mexican vacation with more arguing between Bethenny and Jason, it’s sad to watch. It seems that they can’t seem to forget the past and one of their biggest issues is trust. As Bethenny explained it isn’t about infidelity, it’s about trust that the other person will always be there and always have each other’s back. It seems to me that Jason doesn’t trust that Bethenny won’t throw him under the bus on camera and she’s afraid that he won’t want to put up with her anymore and he will leave.
If Jason divorces her, would he write a tell-all book or go on talk shows bashing Bethenny? Would he sue her for half of her money? That pre-nup is still dogging them in this marriage. This is the type of trust issues that exist in this marriage and it’s really sad.

** One correction that Jacqueline sent me after the article was posted:
“BLK sued Canadians first. Canadians counter sued to put in press and then dropped suit. BLK is still pursuing Canadians for Trademark infringement or however you spell it. Should be over soon.”
@JacLaurita Too clear it up..I never said Teresa&Dina weren’t friends.I said they didn’t talk during filming until Tre&I got in a fight.They r friends.
Jacqueline also tweeted the above to clear up any misunderstandings about Dina and Teresa’s friendship.
Thank you again to Jacqueline for taking the time to talk with me!
