Bethenny Breaks Down at Her 40th Birthday Party on 'Ever After' (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Apr 5th 2011 2:34AM
One of the rules of any relationship is to be very, very careful what you do to celebrate your lovely lady's birthday. Especially if it's one of those significant milestone birthdays like 40. Jason learned this lesson in a very public and difficult way on 'Bethenny Ever After' (Mon., 10PM on Bravo).

At a lavish party he'd thrown together to celebrate Bethenny Frankel's big 4-0, she absolutely freaked out and lost her mind. She pulled Jason into another room where they talked about it while their guests looked around awkwardly.

The way it was filmed was even more uncomfortable, because it kind of looked as if they were broadcasting Frankel's breakdown over loudspeakers so the guests could listen in. Obviously they weren't, but it made her very personal moment look very public.

Sure, staring at a door wouldn't have been that visually exciting but it would have kept the moment between Jason and Bethenny.

The poor guy went from being excited to spring his huge party on his wife to apologizing profusely and vowing to never celebrate her birthday again. That's just not normal. Bethenny needs to work through her childhood issues so she can normalize some of these life experiences.

How selfish to fall out with all the guests at her birthday party!
How humiliating to act like an ungrateful *itch when her husband
bought her diamond earrings AND in front of her inlaws !
Who would do that on TV other than a miserable and selfish person?
It made me cringe!
Jason should take the earrings back because it 'offended' her and
sell them. Donate the $ to citizens of Japan who just lost EVERYTHING
including children and relatives with no homes.
She's pathetic!

Hello Gwen

Did anyone seriously believe that Bethenny wouldn't submarine her own birthday? Jason is such a wonderful, understanding husband. Can you believe that he had the nerve to want to give Bethenny a memorable birthday, to try to erase all the bad ones? Wow, and did you see the non-reaction by Bethenny when Jason gave her a beautiful pair of diamond earrings? AND, he invited his parents to her birthday party -- obviously she wanted only "her" friends attending. I just can't believe how self-absorbed she is. It's all about her, her, her. Are they still married or has he filed for divorce and promised not to announce this until after the show's finale this year? He should file for divorce and ask for custody of Bryn since Bethenny is way too busy with her products, skating, etc. Oh, well. I can't believe I'm still watching her shows. I think I'm through, though.

This is a perfect example of how low our standards have gone, how desperate (some of) the people in the USA are for "entertainment". This is one of the reasons I never watch "reality" shows. You can't tell me people don't press the drama button when the cameras are rolling. I especially love it when somebody rings the doorbell, then they show a shot from the inside of the house of the person answering the door. Was that magic?....or is the place flooded with cameramen, sound techs, lilghting experts, etc.,.... what a bunch of crap we settle for when watching "the boob tube".

I was very appalled at what i saw. It has been painful to watch but hey no one forced me to. Anyway...BUT THIS LAST EPISODE was a drama like I have never seen. Bethenny's tongue is sharp to cut people off, cut them down, cuss them out, be very condescending, YET SHE CRIED AT HER PARTY? Why because all she gives out is hate, scream, vile, insolence and when an angel of a man gets in her life, she can't handle it? She can't handle love, joy, peace - anything good. She thrives on negativity. Her strength comes out when she is negative, sore, mean, IN CONTROL, TELLING PEOPLE OFF, Yes she is in her ZONE. BUT when there is the absence of chaos, and she is not in control to cause chaos, THEN BETHENNY morphs into CHOAS ITSELF. Look at the way she demeaned Jason's parents. She could say such hurtful things to that sweet lady - Jason's mom. She is the bread winner and I guess they have to eat. I would rather be hungry than be fed by a bully. Look at her success. She has been blessed. Can she say Thank You God for blessing me with my husband, my daughter, my career and my new Mom and Dad? Here is the big news. JULIE IS GOING TO END UP WITH JASON - and what a nice couple they will make. No they haven't done anything inappropriate YET. But if Bethenny doesn't sit straight and fly right, she will be flying SOLO. And after Jason, everyone that comes will be for her few dollars she just made. At that time, she will have every reason to CRY - SOB - WEEP. Get it to together woman before you end up losing EVERYTHING you never worked for.

Irritating....Drama queen...and we have enough of those on TV. Wht did she bother with a party.....she should be ashamed of herself and kiss the ground her husband walks on. Talk about patience. If she has issues every year with her age then do not celebrate! Perios end of story.

BETHANY...GET OVER IT. WHEN YOU WENT TO THE RACE TRACK {ON YOUR BIRTHDAY} YOU SHOWED HOW PROUD YOU WERE TO KNOW WHAT GOES ON THERE AND TALKED ABOUT YOUR DAD. YOUR FATHER DIDN'T HATE YOU. I THINK MAYBE YOU STAYED AWAY FROM HIM OR HE MAY HAVE HATED THE WAY YOU ACT! PEOPLE COME FROM WORSE HOMES THAN YOU HAD...IF YOU WANT US TO FEEL SORRY FOR YOU THEN JUST STOP...I FEEL SORRY FOR YOUR HUSBAND AND YOUR DAUGHER!
