So I’m a Bethenny fan, but I get that she’s not not for everyone. Thanks to the power that is Hulu, I started watching from Season One and and am now on Season Three. Other than the gifts from the Gods that are the Scary Island episodes, I had not watched Season 3 since it originally aired. Besides Scary Islamd, I think of it as the season of the end of Jill and Bethenny. That being said, knowing how things ended, I look at Jason a whole lot differently.
In seasons 1-2, Bethenny’s whole narrative was marriage/baby/business with a lot of emphasis on the first two. When you watch just thick Jadon lays it on in Seadon 3, it’s impossible not to question if he wasn’t a total con artist. She was gaga for him. He was telling her exactly what she wanted to hear: we need to move in together, but first I promise there will be a commitment, I love you, you’re right...Jill is no friend, etc... And throughout this, her business was on the verge of exploding. He was driving the car in the Hamptons with her logo on it. We know “he didn’t like Jill”.
I don’t blame Jason for the demise of Jill and Bethenny, but Jill could be honest with Bethenny back then and may have had her take a step back. Just spit-balling.
Had it not been for the shadow cast by the Bethenny/Jill feud and Scary Island, I think a bit more scrutiny would’ve been paid to Jason.
