Bethenny Frankel's Real Housewives spin-off returned last night for Season 2, and watching the new episode, I was reminded of the essential problem with this show: as much as I love Bethenny and am glad that she's finally happy, her relationship with Jason just feels increasingly hollow, often negating the entire premise. Maybe he's just bad at being on camera and is completely different off-screen; maybe there's something darker going on. I can't really speculate on where Jason's head is at, but I can say that the show doesn't exactly inspire me to root for the couple at the center of it -- hell, it doesn't even inspire me to take them seriously as a couple -- and that's a problem. Luckily, his perfect parents from Season 1 have finally devolved into the nagging, demanding, passive-aggressive, clingy, normal in-laws the rest of us have. Now that? That, I believe.
It's really amazing, you would think that it would be easier to get interesting people to star in a celebrity dance competition.
This week we finally get a classic bit of '90s kids television. Hopefully it holds up...
