Max Meisel is Bethenny Frankel’s Assistant

On the season premiere of Bethenny Getting Married she interviewed a few people for a job as her personal assistant. The applicants were eclectic, but Bethenny settled for sweet talking Max Meisel, 24.

Max Meisel used to play football for Syracuse University and he seems like a total douche, but a nice douche or a “hot” guy like Bethenny described him. I think he seemed unqualified, but he blogged that he hadn’t watched The Real Housewives of New York City and he thinks that may have impressed Bethenny cause she wasn’t seeking a fan.

Here’s more from Bethenny’s new bitch, Max: My interview certainly began interestingly. She thought I was hot and I thought I should have gotten a haircut. She asked if I sleep around and I wondered what my sexual promiscuity (or lack thereof) had to do with my capabilities as an assistant…

I think Jason realized the upside of having me around – he would get a piece of his manhood back, something I’m sure he’d been missing as a result of being around Julie, Bethenny, Cookie, and Skinnygirl Margaritas all the time…

My hair looks like I’m on my way to Seaside Heights to try to bang Snooki. I had only been on the job with Bethenny for a few days, but I felt good about how things were going. But I also knew I was in for one hell of an unpredictable, wild ride as Bethenny Frankel’s new assistant.

Good for Max. Although I see him as a sweet talking sales person meets a-hole (and I don’t like his hair) he’s smart enough to know that he should be passive if he wants to succeed with Bethenny and I think he’ll be a good fit. She’s pushing 40; she wants a young one to keep her trendy.
