After a season of hysterics, “Bethenny Ever After” comes to an end –with a nice, fat check for the Hoppys!

What a season it’s been! After temper tantrums, dramatic meltdowns and Skating with the Stars drama, Bethenny Frankel finally has something to really smile about! On the May 9 finale of Bethenny Ever After, the reality star gets an offer on her Skinny Girl franchise from one of the top liquor companies in the industry!

After completing a speaking tour around New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware called “Skinny Girl Night Out,” Bethenny receives some good news from her manager explaining that she can sell Skinny Girl for a pretty penny. “The little cocktail that could,” as Bethenny, 40, calls it, can make her a very rich woman.

Throughout the episode, Bethenny and Jason discuss the idea of selling and what the money could do for their family. But, they wait until the very end to decide — leaving us tagging along for the big news!

Another huge moment was when Bethenny confessed that she was ready for baby number two! Her daughter Bryn has her very, very broody — shocker!. “I do want another baby,” she says. “It’s the most special thing in the whole world.”

So between bills and new babies, this nice Skinny Girl check could change her and Jason’s lives, as well as her C.O.C (Coordinator of Chaos), Julie‘s, her assistant Jackie‘s, and of course, nanny Dawa‘s.

After struggling her whole life with the family that abandoned her, Bethenny finally realizes how important it is to have loving parents when she sees the devotion Jason’s parents have to her and Bryn. She may complain about them, but deep down she admits, they’re “awesome.”

In the end, Bethenny makes the choice to sell her company for an un-disclosed price — although we know it’s A LOT. And if timing couldn’t be any better, Bethenny and Jason recieve their wedding album and reflect on their whirlwind of a year.

And so, Bethenny Ever After ends ’till further notice! Will you miss our favorite ex-Real Housewife? I will!
