Later that week (Friday, if you’re curious), Jake and Bethenny head to a drag club called Lucky Cheng’s where I will be going as soon as I possibly can once I get to New York. They argue about who’s got a schlong and who’s got a gash and who was born with what. They get their tarot cards read, some weird dude makes them balloon animals, and Bethenny actually looks like some of it shocks her. I don’t buy it. But again, thank you Bravo for the tip on the hot night spot. Commercial!
Oh, damn. Back to therapy. We had two glorious weeks without it and I let myself forget it existed. Pffft. Jason working for/with Bethenny is the topic du jour, and the main problem is that Jason already seems tired and freaked out when it comes to their lives revolving around just Bethenny and her massive gravitational pull. Dr. Amador comments that when Jason married her, sure he was supportive of her little business, but neither spouse realized how gigantic and all-encompassing said business would be, so now Jason’s conflicted. I’m sure it has something to do with his individuality getting swallowed up in the whole thing. You know what really pisses me off – this is supposed to be fucking therapy, but because it’s on a frigging reality show, Dr. Amador can’t address one of the biggest issues which is that Jason probably doesn’t want to be on a frigging reality show anymore. I’ll bet he’d be way more willing to work with Bethenny if he thought they had some shred of privacy, but they don’t. Every insecurity he has about being Mr. Bethenny Frankel is aired loud and proud to me and however many millions of people watch this show.
Dr. Amador’s solution? Tell Jason that if he becomes part of the business, the idea that Bethenny’s life is their only life will disappear, because Jason’s life will become one with Bethenny’s life, and the two will merge into a perfect balance. I’d say there’s an excellent chance Jason won’t see it that way, but I’m happy to watch Bethenny give that speech a shot. Commercial!
We return to Tribeca Apartment 1 where, after Bethenny busts Jason’s balls for eating her snacks and he hilariously just nods and keeps eating them, they discuss what they want to do about the move. They spend some time discussing what would be better – stay in the apartment and pay for accommodations for the other couple or move into a hotel. In the end… I’m not really sure what they decide. I’ve rewatched it twice, and I honestly can’t tell if they’re coming or going. I’m sure I’m not the only person with this problem.
I mean, they look like drug addicts in this picture – is it ever possible to truly know someone? Later, at Tribeca Apartment 2, they couple checks out the progress on the remodel, and Bethenny interviews that Jason really has been steering the entire project, and he’s doing an amazing job. Later, Jason comments that when he initially thought about putting up a wall for her closet that would cut off the light coming into the living room, it really worried him. But, Contractor puts up some slabs of wood to mimic the position of the door, and the lighting looks great. Jason gives a positive affirmation to Bethenny about the lighting. It’s all very civilized. The entire segment is about how they work really well together, just in case anyone was wondering how Bravo felt about Jason’s Big Decision. We end on that note, and the previews for next week look like they’re showing Jason accepting Bethenny’s proposal.
