Last night was the premiere of Bethenny Ever After and because it was on Bravo, duh I watched it, just like all of you most likely! No spoilers here, don't worry DVR patrol. Bethenny seems like a friend I would love and fight with often. She is hilarious, witty, and speaks her mind without much thought as to how it affects those around her. Her husband is a saint. Seriously, please clone him now. Her in-laws are incredibly supportive and often choose to say nothing to Bethenny's usually harsh expressions about her distaste for lots of family time.
This brings up an issue I've watched a lot of my friends struggle with. When you love your family but your significant other doesn't understand or want to spend much time with them, it is a real struggle. A friend told me how her husband could not grasp the concept of Thanksgiving equating to a long weekend with her family instead of just a meal. Coming from a family I can't get enough of, I totally felt for Jason, but I do understand why Bethenny feels differently. Does this issue affect your relationship? Have you been able to figure it out? I always wonder what to say to comfort my friends in this position and the almost always delicate relationship between the wife and the mother-in-law.
Here is the happy couple in Miami yesterday. You know, just average fitness and what not.
