I would have been much better at recapping this, but I just hate half hour shows. There is more setup time involved than actual show time. Its seems counterproductive. But I do like this show, so here are my thoughts on the last two episodes.
The first thing we learn is Bethenny is one of those picky orders and she orders for the table. Who is surprised? They go out to a middle eastern place and order a tagine and some flat bread and she tells them not too much cous cous. What if cous cous is Fredrik’s favorite part. Then they both try the hookah for the first time. As much as they travel, I be shocked if it were actually their first time.
They are working to get everything done so they can sell the place before the Christmas holidays. Meanwhile Bethenny had to get a bit of carcinoma removed from her face. By the way, she was doing all this while coordinating cargo ships with aid to Puerto Rico. Six month later, 16% of the country remains without power at all and those who have it experience frequent and lengthy outages. The suicide hotline is working overtime. These are American citizens. Dennis wants to get married. Bethenny is not ready.
Fredrik and Bethenny goes shopping for toilets. Bethenny suddenly wants to splurge on wall hung toilets. I can’t believe she doesn’t have one of those fancy toilets of her own. They are also staging the house. I can’t believe they recoup the money they spend on staging. Fredrik says they will though and he should know. Bethenny is not really receptive to all of the staging but she likes most of it.
Fredrik & Derek and the surrogate go to a baby shower for the twins. I’m not sure it if is appropriate for a surrogate to go to a baby shower. What do you think? OMG then Fredrik lets us know that he had the surrogate move in with them for the final trimester! Is it just me and Jeff Lewis who just want the woman to grow the babies and disappear into the night with a check?
Wow. The final product of this remodel is stunning. It’s time for the brokers’ open and over 400 RSVPs have come in. This is going to be a big deal. The night before they met in the apartment to set the price at $4.795 million. For reason that are unclear they did this in the master bedroom, in the bed with champagne. When Fredrik gets up he knocks a vase into the custom headboard getting water all over it! Actually it is wine. Bethenny calls Dorinda for John’s number and has him send someone over to steam it.
Fredrik wants to have everyone take their shoes off. Bethenny refuses to take hers off. The brokers all love the place. I thought they would get offers right away! It was fabulous. However it took 115 days on the market and a price reduction before it sold. They did not disclose the price other than to say it was at a substantial profit. So, other than the fact that you all think Bethenny should be skinned alive and then burned at the stake for some reason, what else did you think about the show? I loved it. I just wish they would have made half the number of episodes with twice the runtime.
