    He just doesn't seem to be a selfish or controlling guy. He's darn near perfect as a husband, I think. (not by type but I can see good when I see it.)
    Yep, I think Jason's pretty close to being perfect too! Yeah, he does have a teeny-weeny flaw here and there, but really, if Bethenny had searched the entire planet, she couldn't have found anyone better for her than Jason. What a jewel!!!

    I totally concur. Which is why I think the guest list issue was totally scripted.

    ITA. That makes the most sense of something that seemed a little out of place. Even Bethanny's responses to him seemed odd.
    Jason is pretty predictable because he's got a very strong set of values which he applies to most situations and he doesn't vary from it. Bethanny is one lucky girl, not only to have him but to have recognized how special he is. Takes a very special guy to deal with Bethanny and I like her a lot but she takes some getting used to. Probably more than most men would want to deal with.

    DragonLady: You made me think - what I like about Jason is that he does indeed have a firm set of values, and he is gracious. He seems a good modern American - at ease with people of different backgrounds, sexualities (I always come back to that don't I - most annoying for you! ), religions, walks of life, because he treats them as people, not as stereotypes. He is demanding of himself and forgiving of others.

    I love how he chatted with the ladies. It's quite a gentleman who can entertain ladies and make himself agreeable to them rather than hanging off to the side mutely, reading his blackberry, or fumbling, tongue-tied, through mere pleasantries.

    Maybe I read too much Jane Austin, but Jason reminds me of Mr. Knightley.

    Nope, you've got him pegged perfectly. Like the scene you noted, talking with the other ladies, Jason just seems so open, honest and guile-less with everyone. Very admirable.
    Probably due his own personality and also great parenting.

    Except I don't remember Mr. Knightly having the sense of humor that Jason has, and the ability to laugh heartily at so many things --- even at himself. I love that about Jason and that he enjoys Bethenny's humor so much, as well.

    I don't believe this new season has talked about Jason's job at all. Just what does he do for a living? I remember he was in Florida on business when his friends were invited to their apartment sometime before the wedding. Snow kept him from getting there for the event, and Bethenny was very disappointed he couldn't make it.

    Re: Bethenny Ever After

    Week after week I've been so turned off by the nanny -- and now after the "non-Baptism" show, I'm even more convinced. Since that show, whenever I saw her (nanny), I just get annoyed that she's lazier, and I just don't trust her.

    Anyone else feel this way?

    I trust her not to hurt Bryn, but I do think she's gotten lazier and lazier. I think that she was a great baby nurse, but she's not necessarily the best nanny.

    I don't think she was ever meant to be a nanny. Remember in the first season, Bethenny explained that a baby nurse is there for the first couple of weeks a baby is home? I think they kept her around for the show, but she's no longer doing the job she's supposed to be doing.
