Bethenny’s estranged mother is up to no good — find out what she says about Bethenny as a wife, mother and business woman.

The March 26 episode of Bethenny Ever After starts off on a spicy note! Bethenny Frankel and husband Jason Hoppy start to brainstorm ideas for Bethenny’s birthday and they decide that Cabo might be a great option. Jason wants to negotiate how much sex they should have on the vacation and Bethenny just isn’t having it! “I grind my teeth instead of my husband,” says Bethenny. The tone of the episode goes from goofy to glum when Bethenny finds out that her estranged mother is speaking to the tabloids!

Bethenny’s mother, Bernadette, tells Star magazine intimate details about her daughter even though the two haven’t spoken to one another for over a decade! Her mom speaks poorly of Bethenny’s marriage, suggesting that Bethenny will dump Jason any day now. Then she attacks her skills as a mother, claiming that Bethenny never spends enough time with Bryn. Finally, she has the nerve to claim to have come up with the Skinnygirl margarita drink before Bethenny!

Things get even more complicated when Bethenny’s design team want to turn Jason’s special entertainment room into a closet for Bethenny. She’s such a good wife to want to sacrifice the ultimate closet so that Jason can have his man cave, but her design team just keeps pushing the issue!

The debate comes to a head when Bethenny’s apartment remodel team decides to vote on the issue with the vast majority choosing a bigger closet over a man cave. Poor Jason — he can’t cut a break! Luckily Jason graciously suggests a compromise: Bethenny gets her closet and Jason loses his man cave. Though it seems a bit uneven, Jason seems happy that Bethenny is happy. How sweet!

Would you sacrifice something important to you if you knew it would benefit a person you really cared about?
