Self Defense

This week's Bethenny Ever After brought us back to some happier moments - on land! - and also gave us some major mama drama.

First, just to get this out of the way, Bethenny's mother needs to stop. That is all.

Bethenny and Jason work out a few issues in this episode and manage to do so with smiles and laughter, which makes me so happy. The first, their sex life or lack thereof and the correlation that has with their respective bite guards. I love these two when they're being silly. Bite guards, retainers, whatever. Keep that romance alive! Second, the man cave vs the closet. I find it hilarious that the architects and designers all agree the space needs to be used in such a way that it's beneficial for both Bethenny and Jason, but all Jason hears is "no man cave". But, in the end, with some compromising on both parts, (it's not a crime to have a tv in the living room), they both get what they want. Does anyone know if the renovation is done yet?

The funniest scenes are those that feature Team Skinnygirl, of course. You got girls' night our, which I loved,  the self defense class, which was hilarious. And by the way, I'm scared of Dawa now. Then, we have baby CPR - and my new Twitter buddy, Dwayne (@DtheDriver) talking about his kids. Four? Five? It's all good. We know what you mean. And finally, roller skating in the new apartment. How much more fun could you have at work? Awesome!

Speaking of roller skating, I love that Bethenny's best memory is being carefree and soaring over the roller rink floor. Isn't that the best feeling? And she's good at it, too. Of course, she doesn't have many good memories to choose from, but the fact that she's turned all those negative things, which could have kept her down, into this great adventure, is really inspiring.
