Argh I was busy chatting in email with a couple of people. And did not have time to set up this post so I will be a little late in posting, probably. Apparently, it is still Ramona’s birthday. Still. I guess she wanted presents from people who were not in Atlantic City. She has a Turtle Time cake. And THANK GOD FOR BETHENNY for squashing the stupid trend of call women MAMA. I HATE THAT. I am no anybody’s Mama. It’s ridiculous and must be stopped. Bethenny hates the upper east side luncheon birthday party. I can totally appreciate that. Carole and Bethenny discuss Sonja’s psychopharmacologist. Which is a head shrinker that writes scripts. Much like most psychiatrists. The are actual doctors who treat mental disorders with medications. Not vitamins. Meanwhile, Sonja is talking about meditation and abundance candles with some whackadoo.
I do not want to think about Dorinda swinging.
Bethenny is hysterical tonight. Sonja is talking about her swami priestess whackadoo. It’s hysterical. Bethenny moves on to play therapist with Ramona. Then in the next scene Bethenny goes to therapy with her TV doctor. I really wish Bethenny could reconcile with Jason. But that is never going to happen and Bethenny feels betrayed Side note: I saw a video recently of Bethenny and Jason trying to co-parent on Bryn’s fourth birthday. I could not find it on Youtube. But Bryn was having a major meltdown when Jason had to pass her off to Bethenny and was screaming I want to stay with Daddy! Over and over as paparazzi filmed. It must be heartbreaking. There were dozens of paps there. Bethenny is concerned about trusting her judgment. She has recently broken up with (in real time) with her rebound relationship and is already seeing someone else. Bethenny is wanting to meet up with her stepfather John, because she wants Bryn to have some family on here side. Also, I have to break up with my therapist this week. I really can’t afford her anymore with my unaffordable Obama care. Plus, I think I’ve heard all of her things multiple times, it’s getting repetitive at this point. Clearly, I don’t listen. And I have you guys to tell my troubles too. I’m pretty much an open book. More advice is not going to help. I have to do some work on myself. Plus, I will see here again here and there. I’m too poor to be crazy.
Carole and Kristen go to a boxing match. I too like boxing. I love the brutality of it all. So manly. Although whenever my man has been in a fight I generally do the totally wrong thing and try to protect him LOL. They are front row and one of the dudes mouth guard hits Kristen in the leg. Sonja and Luann show up. It’s time for Carole’s friend’s uy to box. Kristen gets really into it. I totally get it, Kristen. Later the ladies go out for drinks and the Luann bitching about Carole dating Adam continues. Adam and the niece are in Nicaragua right now working on the farm. They are friends. Luann is ridiculous.
Bethenny goes to Miami for a girl’s weekend with her high school friends. While she is there she will meet with her step-father, John. Luann is conveniently also in Miami. She has drinks with her maid of honor from her wedding. Oh wow, Luann’s daughter is showing her work at Art Basel! That is very cool in my book. Bethenny recounts that John was abusive to her mother and beat her mother in front of her. Um, why does she want an abusive man in Bryn’s life? Bethenny says that her childhood was horrible but her divorce is ten times worse. No wonder she looks like a skeleton, Bethenny says, and her friend agrees that she does look like a skeleton. That’s a good friend.
Ramona and Dorinda work out together. Ramona thinks Dorinda’s dry cleaner is a gold digger. He has to be something because Dorinda treats him like shit.
Back in Miami, Luann and Bethenny go to Art Basel. Victoria’s piece is a full frontal nude self portrait. I want to go to Art Basel. Victoria should be very proud. I love the setting for this convo with Bethenny and Luann. Luann says that the girls think that Bethenny is a bit standoffish with the girls. Bethenny pays three dollars to feed a clown. Sadly he lost his nose in the process.
Bethenny meets with John who she considered her father. He is a horse trainer just like her bio dad. Bethenny says she has no anger toward him. Bethenny says that her mother trying to commit suicide in front of her, the abuse, her going to nightclubs at fourteen, all of it made her who she is today. Bethenny is trying to get in touch with her mother but now that she is a mother. She can’t imagine treating a child this way. John says that her mother never wanted child. Bethenny recounts some horrible stories. John says he is sorry for what happened. He says he also has a lot of special feelings for her. Bethenny is still trying to make sense of her childhood. I totally get it. You want it all to make sense. But there is no sense to be mad of some things. Somethings are madness and evil and there is no logic there. Bethenny says she was not mad. John said he was mad at her for not hearing from her for over 20 years. Meanwhile I just stopped my recording because dipshit Andy is forcing us to record WWHl and that pisses me off.
That was a raw scene. No product placement.
Next week: Sonja promotes her fashion line. Bethenny cries to Carole. Something happens with Luann and Dorinda and Luann threatens to stick Ramona’s face in the caviar
