Bethenny and Me



What can I say.  I obsess over the Housewives.  Not all of them.  Mostly just Orange County (come on they were the originals) and now New York.  When Bethenny came out with her own show I had to watch.  So there is a really funny character on the show (her wedding planner) who totally reminds me of someone I used to work with.  I emailed my friend who also used to work with me and said...

Have you seen Bethenny.  Isn't it hilar!  Doesn't the wedding planner remind you of (to be unnamed person we used to work with). I can't get over it!  So funny!

This was her response...

Bethenny?  I am assuming she must be on TELEVISION.  I can't say I know what you are talking about.  Especially if she is on TELEVISION.

Ummmm so who on earth uses the word television any more and who uses it twice in the same short email response.  She didn't make it bold. I did because that is how I read it.  I think what she meant to say was...

Really Posh Play.  Your pedestrian time wasters you indulge in daily are just too fluffy for my incredibly important schedule. Television is just a main stream tool to keep the masses down. Sad you are now one of them.

So maybye she wasn't being that mean only I have to say that since I have become a Mom my non mom friends are just a little snotty with me at times.  I know leaving my job and becomming a full time stay at home Mom is a big game changer only I am still the same person.  Sure I am asleep on my feet most of the time and the witty reparte doesn't come as quickly as it used to.  I might not be up on foreign politics and just making sure we have an ample diaper supply in the house at times seems overwhelming.  Still it is me!

I think Bethenny is fun regardless of Mom haziness or not.  I also give her lots of credit for doing everything that she does and keeping her self depricating humor even when things get crazy.  If you can't laugh at yourself who can you laugh at?

On that note...

Want to know my defiinition of being a new Mom this week?

When you come home from the grocery store and stand on the front porch trying to open your front door with your keyless entry button from your car.  Then you stand there for another four minutes wondering why it won't open.

Now what would my highly intellectual friend think about that?

Hahaha - that last little bit just cracked me up. Don't worry about it. Also - the housewives are great. I am into the New Jersey ladies - it is rich white trash at its finest!

You know, OC was the ONLY one I couldn't get into LOL! They're just SOOO different from women on the East Coast. I couldn't relate one iota.

I'm happy to see Bethenny succeed bc she is really funny. Although, she was taping The View, the same day I was on and she was acting like a total diva. Had a 5-person entourage. A bit much and it freaks me out how thin she is after just having had a baby. Damn her ;)
