    Well said and I totally agree.

    Me too! She's that bestfriend that everybody wished they had in their lives. She's not afraid to admit when she's wrong. She funny as heck and can be brutally honest with you all in the same breath. I don't blame her for wanting boundaries with her in-laws. Hell I had to keep my in-laws in check as well and like Jason's parents, mine are awesome people, but sometimes I need my space (my mother-in law understood and agreed, Dad not so much). So you just gotta love Bethanny. Heck Jason knew who he was marrying.

    I wanted/needed my son to be with me during my first few sessions but was told that would not be possible. My son had to wait for me down in the lobby of the building & not in the waiting room.
    For the cameras to be rolling here...not buying it.

    I do give Bethenny TONS of credit for going for help to deal with her issues. I also applaud her for agreeing to allow Bryn to be baptized. I do think if this family, Jason's parents included, would have a session or 2 with a family therapist to set guidlines & boundries. I think it would benefit everyone.

    I know the total panic stricken look of a new Mom when Bryn was being passed around strangers. I agree with her that she needed to get out of there.
    Therapy is different for everyone, and everyone goes for different reasons.

    Let's keep in mind though, that we see Bethenny's therapist for about two minutes an episode. Most therapy sessions are 45 minutes to an hour.

    My guess is that when they go, the editors have an idea of what the week's storyline is going to be, they talk about issues pertaining to that for a few minutes, and then the cameras leave. Bethenny's responses seem candid and honest, at least to me.

    Having an alcoholic parent doesn't mean that you're a teetotaler, or opposed to the sale of alcoholic beverages.

    And drinking her Skinny Girl Margaritas doesn't make me obsessed with my body image.

    Companies that produce food and beverages of all kinds put out low-cal, low-fat, low-carb lines. I don't see anything wrong with it.

    Plus Bethenny seems to (with the exception of that one party of Alex's where she got smashed) understand where her limit is. I'd guess growing up with an alcoholic parents probably taught, her better than someone without an alcoholic parent, where that line is and why it shouldn't be crossed. I'd certainly rather buy a liquor from someone like her rather than someone like say, The Situation. I'd expect her brand to focus on quality and thus would be intended to be sipped.
