'Bethenny Ever After' Recap: Bethenny Ice Skates Her Way Into A Crazy Christmas!

Tue, May 3, 2011 9:28am EDT by Add first Comment

On the May 2 episode of ‘Bethenny Ever After,’ Bethenny Frankel competes in the finale of ‘Skating with the Stars’ and goes on a not so pleasant sleigh ride. It’s Christmas time in California!

On the second-to-last episode of Bethenny‘s hit Bravo show, the reality star gears up for her final routine on Skating with the Stars, but does she walk away with the trophy?

Once again, Bethenny and her ‘insane’ life entertain. As Jason arrives to California to watch his wife compete with her skating partner Ethan, Bethenny plans an outrageous Christimas, which includes ugly sweaters, tree shopping and not so jolly sleigh rides.

The whole family, including Bryn, Cookie and new nanny Dawa, head out in Santa hats to find the perfect Christmas tree in L.A. Of course, after looking for a while, the impatient Bethenny lets Dawa pick out the tree, which Jason has been intently searching for. As usual, Jason gives in to Bethenny’s pleas and cuts down the tree so thoughtfully picked out by Bryn’s new nanny.

Next stop, Bethenny, Jason and Cookie leave Bryn behind and hop on “Santa’s sleigh,” which happens to be a rusty old pick-up truck, for a ride around with an old man who calls himself Mr. Claus. “There is nothing jolly about this ride,” Bethenny exclaims, before comforting Jason who is afraid of heights. Let’s just say sleigh rides work much better with snow.

The Frankel-Hoppy clan participate in a few more Christmas traditions before getting Bethenny ready for her big show — the Skating with the Stars finale. Bethenny and Ethan skate the routine of their life, but sadly lose the crown to soap star Rebecca Budig. “Ethan is the only thing I’ll miss from Skating with the Stars,” Bethenny admits, making it clear she didn’t necessarily enjoy any other aspect of the show.

After returning home to NYC and going out on a “foodie date,” with her interesting friend Nick, Bethenny packs up the entire family and heads out on the Skinny Girl bus tour. And we must say, baby Bryn stole the show in here Sue Sylvester-esque red track suit that Bethenny referred to as the Skinny Girl look!

Make sure to check out the video of Bethenny’s sleigh ride and catch the finale of Bethenny Ever After next Monday, May 9 at 10 pm.
