I love Bethenny Frankel, but only in small doses. Bethenny Getting Married premiered on Bravo on Thursday and I just watched the episode on Sunday. It was pretty bad and the main reason why the show sucks is it has no script! Bethenny Getting Married seems like an unscripted reality show and Bethenny’s funny enough to carry her own program, but she’s also whiny and she’s becoming unlikable a bit.
We get it, she’s pregnant and she’s 39 and she has issues, but that’s not enough to make me watch her whine about being pregnant, and 39, and having issues. Furthermore, Jason Hoppy is a bit of a snooze fest. He’s the soft spoken man who handed Bethenny his balls and signed up for this trainwreck of a show and a b*tch for a partner. Haven’t they heard of the reality show curse?
On the show’s debut episode, Bethenny didn’t want Jason’s friends to stay at their house. Not a good look. Your man isn’t supposed to be your child and I loathe control freaks. I need the show to give me something more, something fun, but that’s doubtful. It’s all about Bethenny getting ready to say “I do” and become a mother which in itself isn’t that exciting – especially without a gay assistant! Bethenny hired a sweet talking straight guy.
Bethenny is great on the Real Housewives of New York City because she provides a nice contrast between the other women. But on her own show, she may just be too much of a good thing.
