I Hate Jill Zarin Housewives Updates

I Hate Jill Zarin    Real Housewives News      October 20, 2010

Is it a curse?   Do the Housewives have a higher percentage of divorce than the rest of the nation? 

Vicki Gunvalson of The Real Housewives of Orange County has reportedly filed for divorce from her husband of 16 years, Donn Gunvalson.  Interesting as just last season this couple renewed their vows and seemed to be doing better than ever.  Many wondered how this mild mannered, kind man tolerated the abuse that he took over the first three seasons of the show.  Vicki had really put him down and insulted her husband many times in prior seasons.  Admitting that she was neglecting and even abusing her relationship with Donn, Vicki surprised him with a romantic trip to Turks and Caicos including a beautiful wedding ceremony renewing their vows on the beach.  So what went wrong? 

Does Vicki think that there is a better option out there?  We saw her flirting and kissing other men while on vacation without her husband in early seasons and she has never shown Donn any respect or admiration. Based on what we’ve seen on the show, Donn seemed to be a pretty good catch and the fact that he tolerated Vicki’s vicious attacks and overbearing, loud, obnoxious attitude, he caught the eye of many women including Vicki’s neighbor Jeana Keough who is also on the market.  This could mean a new romance for Jeana?  Can Donn fill Jeana’s love tank?

http://www.nydailynews.com/gossip/2010/10/19/2010-10-19_real_housewives_of_orange_county_star_vicki_gunvalson_files_for_divorce_from_hus.html

As you can see from the comments around the internet, Vicki is getting very little sympathy, the support is all for her soon to be ex husband Donn.  Here’s hoping Donn finds a great lady who will treat him right!

Is it possible that Donn Gunvalson was the one who wanted the divorce but being a gentleman, he is allowing Vicki to publically announce that she is the one filing for the divorce.  We should be getting all of the details in the near future as the Real Housewives of Orange County are in the middle of filming their latest season.  Did filming finally crack this couple?  As the last original housewife who never took any breaks in taping the show, could this have been one of the issues in this marriage?   This is Vicki’s second marriage that will be ending , luckily there are no young children involved.  Vicki’s two children from her first marriage are grown and independent. 

The curse of the Housewives marriage ender has hit Orange County once again, Tamra Barney and her husband Simon broke up last season as the show filmed the demise of their marriage.  If that 50% divorce rate holds true we should be watching as more Housewives marriages break up, many of them are already divorced when we meet them as housewives and we even have few that have never been married. 

This never gets old:  http://twitpic.com/2z3q1k

Many predictions have been thrown out there since news of Vicki’s divorce hit the newswires, New Jersey’s Housewives are all married (except the ex-housewife Danielle) and many figure it is only a matter of time before we hear about the end of the Giudice’s marriage.  What about the Laurita’s?  Jacqueline and Chris could they be the Jersey statistic?  Will Dina Manzo finally call it quits in her sham marriage to her missing in action Tommy? 

DC’s Housewives have already had their statistic, The show, Real Housewives being described as the catalyst that ended the marriage of Cat Ommanney and her soon to be ex-husband Charles. 

Atlanta has only three housewives who have husbands, three are divorced and the final Housewife will marry later this season.  One of the three married ladies will most likely be announcing her divorce any day now.  Could they be waiting until the season airs?  Do you suppose Bravo asked them to wait?  Bravo has filmed the demise of this marriage just as they did with Cat’s DC marriage but NeNe Leakes has been a fan favorite of the top rated Housewives series since day one, possibly they’re holding it together for another few weeks.  Soon we will watch as Gregg fails to show up at NeNe’s nose job procedure, and we hear her moaning for her husband as she lies in a hospital bed.  If we already knew that this couple had split, would it be as dramatic?  Do producers feel it would be a bigger ratings hit if this marriage were still intact? 

And so another marriage bites the dust, can we blame Bravo and Real Housewives or was this marriage doomed regardless of the show? 

Jill Zarin created a bit of a stir on Twitter last night, in her infinite wisdom Jill decided that she and a posse of her choosing should seek out cyber-bullies and block them, report them (to whom, she didn’t say) and then search out their employers and tell their boss on them.

What a genius suggestion because those ninny’s that Jill’s got out bullying the rest of us should be  collecting unemployment compensation and sitting on the internet all day.  They will have more time to bully people in defense of Jill Zarin, perfect idea Jill Zarin! 

Unfortunately there is more than one flaw in Jill’s plan, not only would unemployed bullies find more time for their bullying (and get paid by the government to do so), she is assuming that employers would care or even be allowed by law to care what people do on their off time. 

Jill has also failed to determine what constitutes “bullying”.  If I tweeted that I don’t like you, am I a bully?  Should I be fired from my job for that?  What if I tweeted vulgarities and jabs at your family and wishing you were dead?  Is that a bully?  What about somewhere in between?  And where do we draw the line?  Who decides what constitutes bullying?  I don’t know about any of you, but I don’t want Jill to be the one who makes that determination. 

Besides being an absolutely moronic idea, Twitter doesn’t do a thing about cyber bullies, you can report them into next Tuesday, they will only take action if a threat has been made.  Contacting someone’s boss could get you into legal trouble, I’m no attorney but it isn’t something I would mess with. 

What is interesting about this whole thing is that Jill’s fans (With Dina’s a close second) are the biggest bullies on the internet.  These people are fierce and loyal to Jill, which is all well and good but they seek out people who don’t like Jill and attack them, bully them.  They are mean and cruel and attack people that they don’t know.  The Bravo cast’s put themselves on television and are fair game as far as I’m concerned.  These celebrities sign onto Twitter and have to take the good with the bad.  They get their loving messages but some people are going to criticize them if they are given the opportunity.   In contrast, I am a fan of Bethenny’s, yet I do not seek out people who criticize her and attack them, in fact, I don’t say a word to them. 

On the off chance that someone may want to contact my employer about my bullying, you can email them at LynnAHudson@aol.com

Here are Jill’s tweets:

@JillZarin:  Let’s start a STOP cyberbullying group.We would identify the bullies, then block, report and inform their employer! Who would join?

@JillZarin:  @XXXXXXX  not if u know them. People in same company have been cyber bullied. Report to boss or authorities if necessary.

@JillZarin:  Yes!! RT @XXXXXXX @Jillzarin Hello Jill Would you follow me? I plan on making lists of cyberbullies and their supporters. Love how you are working this cause

@JillZarin:   Funny!RT @XXXXXXX  @Jillzarin middle school called, they want theyre bullying back!

@JillZarin:  Actions have reactions . Tell there parents if from children. I cant believe any mother would be a cyber bully right? RT @XXXXXX @Jillzarin some ppl on twitter form groups for nothing other than bullying its just sad

Off subject but Jill could use an English lesson here, Jill it is “THEIR” not “THERE”.  wow! 

As the above tweet shows, one Twitterer is letting Jill know that groups are forming on Twitter to bully people, funnily enough the only group that I know on Twitter that bullies people are Jill’s fans.  They revealed themselves to Jill a while back and have been bullying people who don’t care for Jill for weeks. 

@XXXXXX – Team Jill! We will always be here supporting @Jillzarin !

@JillZarin:   I showed ginger and she loved it. Ruff! RT

I would love for Jill to take up this cause and really make a difference, not just encourage people to defend her.  Jill’s only concern about cyber-bullies are those that criticize her.  According to Jill, anyone who doesn’t support her is a cyber bully. 

@Tweeterlaura was that a threat from @jillzarin

@Jillzarin TO @Tweeterlaura: You r the worst kind of cyber bully there is. Everyone should block and report u.

So because TweeterLaura asked if Jill was threatening people, Jill called her a cyber bully, as if Jill’s tweet was a call to command, Jill’s minions attacked TweeterLaura for hours thereafter.  Who is the bully and who is the victim? 

Some may have forgotten Jill Zarin’s cyber bullying Alana Chandler of Amazon.com after the less than flattering review of Jill’s book.  Not only did Jill disguise herself and slam Ms. Chandler but she called her Anti-Semitic and sent threatening emails to Alana.  Is that the definition of a cyber-bully? 

Phaedra Parks continues to take flack for her behavior on Monday night on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, she referred people to her blog to explain her behavior, yet it really only served to underscore her ridiculous views on everything from child rearing to the way the different races consume food.  My tweet to Phaedra:

LynnNChicago  TO:  @PhaedraParks Your blog is a joke and you’re a cartoon character

Phaedra chose not to respond to me in public on Twitter, she sent me a private direct message:

@PhaedraParks  TO:  LynnNChicago:  Thanks for your opinion, we all have one. I am not a cartoon character nor a blogger. I hope you have a wonderful week.

Shout out here to TrueLifeDiva for the “Cartoon Character” comment, I admit I stole it but I thought it was good for Phaedra to know what people were thinking about her.  I think cartoon character describes Phaedra perfectly and she does produce a blog weekly on Bravotv.com, that makes her a blogger, like it or not. 

You can read Phaedra Park’s blog here:

Real Old Housewife has posted her recap of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, don’t miss it:

http://thereallyoldhousewivesofmanateecounty.blogspot.com/

Big news out of New Jersey yesterday, apparently Teresa Giudice continues to hold out for more money before agreeing to any filming on The Real Housewives of New Jersey.  Reports suggest that Teresa is asking for double her salary, more freedom to make personal appearances and some residual funds from re-runs, DVD sales and I-tunes sales of the show. 

In the meantime we continue to hear stories that Teresa’s sister in law, Melissa who is married to Teresa’s brother Joe has been filming for a few months now.  What we don’t know is if Melissa is filming as an already confirmed member of the cast or if she is merely a back-up in case they don’t get Teresa to sign on the dotted line.  Possibly they’re reviewing the film to see if they want to keep Melissa, no one knows for sure. 

Jacqueline Laurita has been unusually quiet on Twitter lately, fueling the rumors that she is filming.  I would rest assured that Jacqueline is coming back for next season and is indeed filming right now. 

Caroline made a boo-boo yesterday tweeting this:

@CarolineManzo:  Don’t forget to watch @albiemanzo & @chris_manzo on Millionaire Matchmaker tonight!!!!

Oops, apparently it is next week that her son’s will whore themselves out to the horrible Patti Stanger.  (as promised, I did not watch Millionaire Matchmaker and don’t ever intend to)  Caroline is tweeting about her next series of appearances in Dina’s show, “My Big Gay Italian Wedding” as the Jersey gang is doing a few encore productions of the play, most likely for Bravo’s cameras to appear in the next season of Housewives of New Jersey.

Krazy Kelly is off to Florida again, I guess she needs a vacation from her life, I wonder if Bravo’s cameras followed her to Ft. Lauderdale?  We know that her trained photographer sure did, she continues to tweet photos of herself doing various things, this time, we see her walking through the airport on her way to catch a flight to Florida, ripped jeans and all…

Off to ft lauderdale. http://twitpic.com/2z4pv6

More of Kelly’s tweets:

Patti Steinger from millionaire matchmaker is amazing. Those entitled women, ugh. What ever happened to light, fun, and smart girls? Oof

Patti Stanger, sorry for the misspell of ur name. Ur show is amazing, and u r so animated, I love it.

Obviously a big fan, Kelly doesn’t know how to spell Patti’s name, a quick google search or even Bravo’s web site could have saved her from looking like an idiot by misspelling her name. 

Remember Kelly’s Halloween party from Season two, the one that she was so late for that the rest of the cast left the party and it was a source of tension at the reunion, here is a tweet from Kelly about this year’s party:  

@Kikilet:  I am having a halloween party this year. Yes ma’am. And, I did attend the filmed event for season 2, too. #justsaying  

@Kikilet:  pr101 is get your brand out there. Pr102 is diffuse any bogus negativity/ haters with a smile

Kelly is addicted to Twitter, I’m convinced of it.  She tweets all day, every day her opinions, her suck up’s to celebrities, photos of herself and her “charitable” tweets.  Those charitable tweets where she types a few words asking OTHER people to donate to charity while she feels she’s done her part simply by tweeting the charity’s name.  I think she really believes that her one tweet about a charity results in a huge influx of money for this charity.  I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but Kelly Bensimon doesn’t have that kind of influence, she is widely viewed as a joke and therefore her “charitable” tweets could be hurting a charity more than helping it.

Tonight on Bravo, Top Chef Just Desserts.  It looks like we may have another “pea puree mystery” on our hands when something goes missing…<cue Twilight Zone music>

Until Next Time….

    I tried to talk some sense into one of Jill’s “crusaders” in the wee hours of the morning. I feel that have been forewarned. When you get around to reading my tweet, you will see that I declared myself one of your followers.

    My daughter was bullied to the point that I had to withdraw her from school and home school her. It was a very painful time in our lives. Bullying is a very serious and devastating issue.

    Jill is also suggesting that her followers stop patronizing the businesses of the bullies. So, I can conclude that Zarin Fabrics is going to shut down due to lack of sales?

    I am not going to be passive if the groups (yes, Jill has solicited several) follow through with their threats; I will be a one person crusade against their antics.

    • MAMAZ says:

      I’m sorry you daughter and your family had to go through such a painful experience. Doesn’t it make your furious when you see people like Jill Zarin and Kelly Bensimon whine about being bullied when what they really mean is that they have been unable to manipulate or intimidate people into doing things their way?

      • ShyAsrai says:

        “…what they really mean is that they have been unable to manipulate or intimidate people into doing things their way?”

        DOUBLE AMEN!

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      I’m so sorry to hear about what happened to your daughter. Stories like hers are real issues.

      It makes me mad that people like Jill and Kelly try to shield themselves against the blow back from their actions by calling people who call them out over it- bullies.

    • Sorry to hear about your daughter’s troubles. It’s people like Jill and Kelly that make a mockery of the whole issue of bullying.

      Jill is a has-been. She needs to call attention to herself in any way to try to be relevant and apparently she will use any tactic to try to achieve that goal. What she’s doing is making a fool of herself.

      I don’t know who this woman thinks she is, but in my book, she’s a monster. She thinks herself so important that she has tried to use intimidation and bullying tactics to try to silence her critics. Sorry, but that won’t work. The harder she attacks, all the more harder will we resist and continue to speak our minds.

      That is the main difference between her few starstruck, bullying, harassing fans and her critics–we use our minds to form our opinions and do so by using the evidence we see and hear and do not just blindly follow any person.

      Remember, Jill thinks her word or her way of thinking is gospel. Jill thinks “if I do this, so does everyone else.” That way of thinking is like that of a child’s mind. I believe that most people hold to a personal integrity that Jill does not have and therefore, most people do not “do it because Jill does it”.

      Again, because Jill is really powerless to do anything about her critics, she tries to intimidate them into silence by playing the bullying card. Too bad MOST people aren’t buying it.

      • sophie says:

        Quite frankly, I don’t get this whole ‘twitter’ nonsense. I don’t understand how these ‘fabulous’ women have enough time in their day to bother with it.

        They must lead very ‘not so fabulous’ lives if they are tweeting all day trying to prove the opposite. Please. Why don’t they act like grown women?

    • dancekrazy says:

      (I’m back from a long vacation. Hope I’m welcome back to my favorite nighttime place)

      I am so sorry about your daughter’s being bullied. That is just awful, which makes me even angrier when people like Zarin claim “bullying” when what is written about her is nowhere near bullying…….at least not on Lynn’s blog. I can’t speak for other blogs, but what we do here is state an opinion. We just don’t like her. Personally, I can’t stomach her. If, God forbid, you like Bethenny and support her or any of Zarin’s other “enemies”, you’re a bully???? And, by the way, look who’s making threats…….yes, it’s none other than Zarin and her minions.
      Zarin, of all people, who has much negativity toward others, should not be making such serious accusations.
      Tell your daughter that the bullying will pass and she will go on to live a wonderful life, probably far more successfully than the true bullies who have hurt her. Your daughter will only grow stronger once she understands how stupid, immature, and insipid these people are.
      Note to Lynn: Good grief! Does Kelly ever get better? That poor girl needs her medication adjusted OR STARTED.

      Take care,
      Susan

    • Humbruh says:

      Sorry to hear about what happened to your daughter. Bullying is a serious issue. I hate it when people like Jill don’t take it seriously & hop on the bandwagon because it’s the new “celebrity” thing to do.

      My family & I survived Hurricane Katrina & it pissed me off to no end seeing celebrities get involved for a second, just for a photo op, then you never heard from them again. Sickening!

  2. Candace says:

    Hearing Vicki’s ear splitting screams would wear on any sane man. As Donn drives away, maybe he will indulge himself for once and let go with a big “woo hoo!”

    Vicki, Teresa and Phaedra are in a dead heat for most repulsive housewive.

    • psol says:

      …and please don’t forget about Jill

    • dancekrazy says:

      Vicki has my vote for the #2 spot. If she mentions how much she works, or gives out that “war whoop” one more time, I may hang myself.

      So far what I’ve seen of Phaedra is absolutely annoying. She is so fake, it makes me nauseous. And what the hell was that comment about her husband’s being raised in a “white household” which is her reason why he doesn’t know good food, only canned stuff. I’m white, and I assure you the only thing in cans when I was growing up was pineapple juice, everything else was fresh and cooked the day it was bought. That wasn’t a very nice thing to say, and I couldn’t believe my ears.
      Anyway, the jury is out on Phaedra until I see the whole season. She may just have been “showcasing” when she first went before a camera. Time will tell.
      And, oh what can we say about Zarin that hasn’t been said. DEFINITELY #1.
      The woman turns my stomach. POOR GINGER!

    • Humbruh says:

      Phaedra is definitely closing in on Teresa & Jill’s lead for worst. If she keeps this same momentum, she may end up with an “I Hate Phaedra Parks” blog named in her honor before the end of the season.

  3. Olivia says:

    I think it is safe to suggest that most of these marriages were on shaky ground to begin with and the stupidity of appearing on these shows is what more than likely drove them into the ditch.

    A man who was not at the “beck and call” of his wife would never agree to exposing his family in favor of a woman who wishes to be seen as some reconstructed “sex bomb” intent on making herself the “end all, be all” of these series. Watching these bimbos undergoing breast enhancement, Botox injections, and walking around with their boobs on display while the kids sit in the background unattended as the cameras roll would be the last thing any man would approve on behalf of his family life unless he has absolutely no say in the matter. Most of these women – no, all of these women – are out for themselves alone and whatever they can get out of appearing in the best/worst possible scenario Bravo dreams up for them by way of the storyline.

    I am unable to think of one woman in these series who does not fight to stay viable regardless of the publicity that surrounds her behavior and most of those men have absolutely no say in their decisions as far as I can see. I was hoping that Jason Hoppy had the presence of mind to suggest “no more” of this constant invasion, make believe scripts, and moments like peeing in a bucket disguised as entertainment but I have a feeling that he was overruled by Bethenny as she seeks to imprint her “brand” on a national stage.

    Vicki has never been a likable character and probably earned more money than Donn which was why she was able to call the shots. Six years of Vicki appearing on this never ending trail to nowhere is five years too many. Bobby probably does not give a damn since Jill “filming” gets her out of his hair. I’ll bet the same holds true for Mario because having to watch his 55 yr old wife attempt to appear as a “20 something” while guzzling down quart loads of Pinot Grigio and making an ass out of herself cannot be all that rewarding in his line of business. I cannot imagine Joe Guidice thinking that this series improved his lot in life but chances are Teresa was calling the shots here and he had to sign on or else. Even with the embarrassment that resulted from their bankruptcy she is still fighting to maintain a position on a stupid show that highlights the worst of their lives.

    I can only see two husbands eager to align themselves with these productions: Tareq Salahi and Simon Vandencamp who are equally in love with the spotlight and live for the day of filming. The other men involved are just stand ins, called upon infrequently to bolster the image of the word “wife” in the heading of these shows.

    After a few sessions of watching these women, it becomes quite clear that they do not want these men, need these men, or even respect these men long enough to stand aside and questions just what the hell they are sacrificing in order to be considered “stars”.

    Most of these men are nothing more than appendages attached to women who seek the fame and fortune they need to survive. The willingness to set aside their marriages in place of the fame they chase is nothing compared to being dropped from these shows where their “real reality” exists.

    • Waslurking says:

      Do you seriously think none of these men had no clue going in? PLZ!
      While personally I can’t imagine why any of these women or men would
      be involved in any of these shows………..it’s really not up to me to judge and
      I’m not about to put them ALL in the “fame whore” category.
      I think it’s unfair to do so……..none of use really know the reasons behind
      it all. I may not like several of the ‘cast’ but to lump them all into a crap fest isn’t right either.
      While I like to read you perspective on things Olivia…….. you have a way of putting things that make all of us watching being idiots too…. wth?
      Why do you watch….. I do not get it?

    • @olivia. your first paragraph says it all in regards to every marriage represented in the housewives series.

    • dancekrazy says:

      You know, you are absolutely right about Simon and Tareq. The thing is that I think that Simon does love the spotlight and his wife. I think he enjoys showing her off, as well he should. His reason for wanting the camera, I think, is way more healthy and wholesome than SaLIEhe’s.
      Tareq is a sick, controlling screwball who lies through his teeth about nearly everything except, perhaps, his own name. His “face time” on the show is deplorable, but what the heck can the producers do if they are never apart. And, of course, let’s not forget our old friend from the OC, Slade or Slash, or whatever the hell his name is. He has gotten so much camera time with, let’s see…….Jo, then the other blonde who married someone else, then Gretchen, and who knows who is next! Maybe Vicki………oooooh????

      • Squirrels says:

        Actually Tareq lies about his name as well. It has been reported that he has at least one alias, and has used it to sign an affidavit as a witness/complainant in one of Tereq’s legal suits. It got Tareq off the hook since it wasn’t discovered the affidavit was a figment of Tareq’s imagination. This man knows how to play the system. Mind boggling.

  4. Adgirl says:

    Kelly thinks tweeting is her “Job”. She probably has a couple of small sponsorship deals that support her delusion of being a professional celebrity and “trend setter”.

    Thank Lynn for another great recap of the days events.

    Very sad about the Gulvasons. Now Vicki and Tamra can spend as much time together as they want. Oh wait. That’s only fun when you can piss off your husband.

    It’s too bad I don’t have an employer for Jill to complain to. I’d love to get fired so I could sue her and my employer for firing me all because I said “I Hate Jill Zarin. Jill Zarin is a Big Fat Idiot.” on the internet.

  5. Sha2000 says:

    Hmmmm, so silly! The idea of contacting someones employer to complain that they made a remark on the internet is pretty stupid in my book. One could just as easily say they are going to contact a certain persons certain network (aka her boss)to say she’s been a bully online to their $$$viewers$$$.

    It works both ways.

    I’ve said many times that I don’t hate her & was indifferent, but now I’m forming an opinion that she’s not so bright. That’s okay, she’s in good company w/the franchise of nit wits we’ve seen. Wow, if she dosen’t like the response online why not just get off the computer & take a break?

  6. knocknoc says:

    Lynn

    Great update on the bully-mess “business”. Our
    “nut” Jill loves to incite and yet she ignites her ignoramous
    tasks for others to do her dirty work….then she walks
    away with “clean hands”.

    Jill is a mess and frankly, advancing age doesn’t inspire
    her to growup it merely ages her more….and certainly
    doesn’t make her more loveable.

    Carry on Lynn. Continue to keep us informed of all the
    Housewives news. We love it!

    • Kokuanani says:

      I wonder if we’re going to be treated to a view of Jill’s reaction to her daughter’s being away at college?

      Talk about “advancing age” and “get a hobby.”

  7. Adgirl says:

    Wouldn’t it be delicious is Bravo filmed Jill actually complaining to someone’s employer over a rude comment they made on twitter?

    We could watch her trackdown the employer, complain and then follow when the employee gets fired! Next episode – we follow the employee hiring an attorney (insert Gloria Allred or Lisa Bloom joke here) to sue Jill, Zarin Fabrics, Bravo, the employer and the entire Bravo audience for bullying them!
    Gag. What a dumb idea.

  8. buffywood says:

    I really can’t believe that dumb twit would tweet “I cant believe any mother would be a cyber bully”. IMO the worst case of cyber bulling was DONE by a mother. This just shows how out of touch and insensitive she is. Does she not know about Megan Meier? Not to mention most all of her “focus” with her cyber bulling comments is in reference to adults; which ticks me off. Don’t get me wrong, I know there is an issue with adult bullying, but adults are also more mentally equipped to deal with the situation then children are.

  9. Wall St Lady says:

    Olivia
    Well said & very insightful !

  10. Holly says:

    Jill is inciting hatred amongst Bravo viewers. What has she done for any of her viewers that they should run to her support, no matter what? Her idea to track down employers of people on twitter who don’t like her and say so is moronic, but it’s not the first time she has a half-a@@ idea. Instead of asking people to stop bullying others, and herself blocking those that bother her…she asks people to make “lists”. What is that…Nazi behavior? Clueless woman. People like her who have access to the public can create a lot of damage because they are irresponsible about the soapbox given to them by Bravo. Now there are a couple of “end bullying” Jill fans popping up all over twitter and asking people to follow them, so that they can make ‘lists’ of cyberbullies and their supporters. AND THEN WHAT? Who died and made these morons the twitter police?? One such twitter user is “end2bullying”. Maybe this person’s intent is good (although who knows as she hasn’t said what her intent is…), except she responded to Jill’s “bright” idea and said she was going to make “lists”. Whatever. I hope nobody follows this half-brain nitwit.

    I don’t even pay attention to this type of juvenile behavior, but Jill just took the cake on that one. Good going, JZ. Clearly, you haven’t changed your immature tactics ONE BIT since last season of RHONY. Good thing Bethenny got her number.

    • Dawn says:

      I just found out that a niece of mine was recently a victim of cyberbullying. She is a minor and what was done to her and the number of people that it involved is mind boggling. Initially, the school was no help and considered an apology to be all that was necessary as a means of resolving the issue. After parents complained, the bully was suspended from school. It wasn’t just my niece who was a victim, all of the children who received the pornography with my niece’s name attached (it was not my niece) were victims of this person as well.

      Jill should not compare her experience with those that have truly suffered. Were my niece less able to withstand the torment, who knows how she may have chosen to handle this. There have been suicides as a result of this type of victimization.

      Jill has chosen to be a public figure. People who email or twitter her to tell her they don’t like her are not guilty of stalking or bullying.

      Jill just shows, once again, that it’s all about her. I don’t see her rallying to defend the multitude of kids who are regularly plagued by this behavior. Often, it’s peers who are the perpetrators although we’ve certainly seen that parents are capable of doing this as well. In this particular case, the parents of the minor girl treated it as a “girls will be girls” type of incident. The medium through which messages travel has changed so much and the immediacy with which the message spreads combined with the number of people who can be reached is much different than the way that bullying took place in the past. A reputation can now be tarnished in an instant.

      Woe to the adults who play these games. I’ve watched them played out on this very site. Scary individuals.

    • It took a while, but the smart ones who didn’t initially see through Jill’s facade finally did get Jill’s number. LOL! (With Bravo’s help, that is.) :P

    I would be proud to be included on ill’s Enemies List.
    Except I can’t be bothered to visit her or anyone Bravo ppl on twitter.

  12. plainviewsue says:

    What an exciting day I had today. I actually got a direct twitter message from Ms Zarin herself!!

    She had tweeted that she went to Mr. Chow’s for dinner and that the food was blah, not good. So I tweeted her and asked her if she was mad that she didn’t get her meal comped.

    Let’s face it; Jill is notorious for plugging wherever she goes, knowing the publicity will give her freebies.

    So I get a direct message from her “Why would I?”

    So I answered her back, something to the effect that she always expects freebies!

    Jill was the biggest bully of them all on the show.

    Was real surprised to hear about Vicky and Donn. Donn seems like such a great guy, and I really thought that they were on the road. Jeanna should definitely take a shot!!

    FYI & in honor of ur dad.
    Value Line recommends value stocks using the value methodology of picking stocks.Value looks for low P/E (price to earnings ratio) meaning the earnings must b a sizable % of the price.
    An internet stock is not a value but a growth stock & could have no earnings but anticipated earnings in the future.
    Value stocks usually have a dividend. Also the stock price of a value stock must have assets per share. Like an oil stock could b priced at $30 & could have oil assets in the ground of $35.
    Warren Buffet is the best known value investor.
    In falling stock environments u can focus on the assets u own in value stocks vs the growth investors who need high earnings growth for their stocks to recover ; while a value owner can collect dividend.
    Growth has more risk but is expected to have higher appreciation over time (higher risk higher return).
    Value w/assets & dividends are considered safer but appreciation is expected to b lower than growth in up markets. Expect the opposite is falling markets.
    I bet ur dad did very well.

  14. Adgirl says:

    @plainviewsue – I think Jeanna has quite a few personal issues that she needs to resolve before she can participate in a relationship.

    1. She still can’t dump Matt Keough 100% even though he is a confirmed dangerous drunk (she even pled for leniency from the judge at his DUI sentencing – she said she didn’t know he was drinking again WTF?).
    2. She appears on Thinirvention to be sneaking food or alcohol. She hasn’t lost much weight for the amount of time she has been on Jackie’s rigorous program.

  15. jezzibel says:

    I can see getting someone in trouble with a employer if they are spending too much time on twitter during working hours or using company computers to tweet(but it seems that most people have twitter on their cellphones), or using a company twitter account to harrass someone on twitter potentially being a reprimand from bosses. But to make lists of people that don’t like Jill Zarin and say so on twitter and then attempt to get them fired, by accusing them of cyberbulling….what a moron.

    • tweeterlaura says:

      to make twitter lists of people that don’t like Jill Zarin and then attempt to get them fired, by accusing them of cyberbulling is beyond moronic.

      inciting minors to stalk adults on twitter telling them to grow up and get out of junior high is dangerous to the child’s development and not to leave it there JZ tweeted approval of their behavior.

      jill is hardly relevant during rhony season and off season even less. this consumes her and allows her to gather the most rabid ignorant fans and she fawns over them.

      betheny’s happiness and success is driving JZ crazier and more vindictive it such a thing is possible.

      i hate jill zarin. she is a mean bully.

  16. butterisafruit says:

    I think what Jill is doing is called…………”Stalking”. She’s trying to rally an army of delusional fanatics to go after people who don’t like her. She wants more information than any public figure would need. She’s not a celebrity, she’s not a star, hell she’s not even a personality. She’s just a publicly known individual. And not in a good way.

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      ITA- she also suggested some sort of juvenile espionage where they would create fake persona’s and infiltrate groups. HAHAHAHA- anyone want to guess what groups they might be looking at?

      We all know that any ‘followers’ of Lynn are autoblocks for Dina and Jill.

  17. jezzibel says:

    forgive my crudness, but Jill Zarin should just stick to giving Bobby blowjobs for jewelry, rather then making herself the spokesperson for cyberbulling…..and she is more then welcome to tweet to my employer that I don’t like her…my mom will probably tell her the same thing!

  18. Olivia says:

    Dear Jill:

    So you have now stepped onto the bandwagon by speaking out against bullies. Well good for you! And just what are you doing about it, I mean besides Twittering and calling out the faithful to expose these cyberbullies to their respective employers? Apparently you are not fully acquainted with freedom of speech, no matter how egregious the speaker may be, but so far we do still maintain that right and my only response to you is that reporting this to an employer is not going to stand up in any court of law nor deter those who wish to wallow in it.

    I can offer another avenue for your if you are willing to listen and take heed. That would be to remove yourself from the clutches of Bravo and seriously stand back and consider just what it is they are selling the public in this arena of entertainment: they are selling and packaging the very same thing you say you abhor.

    See, Bravo depends upon ratings in order to maintain a level of revenue. So far we pretty much have seen from their offerings by way of the “Housewives franchises” alone an overall imitation of bullying that exists in more than one form: verbal, threats, hands on, hair pulling, and “in your face” screaming that from my vantage point spells out the bullying in huge amounts. You are connected to this whether or not you wish to admit as much. Bullying is in your genes as you take on book reviewers and allow yourself to be cast as the bully from just last season alone. Have you ever considered just telling Bravo to take their money and shove it since you seen so intent on eradicating this hideous display of cruelty that emanates from so many of the Bravo enterprises? That would be a courageous first step, IMHO.

    Does it ever occur to you that this form of bullying is being emulated and celebrated by “fans” who take pleasure in watching their favorite “stars” slam down another castmate as if they were watching this from the Roman Collisseum instead of from the safety of their own homes? Does it ever occur to you that by remaining onboard with this misogynist exercise that is known as Bravo that you are actually contributing to the mess that has become so prevalent across the blogosphere and has seeped into the mindsets of those who look up to you?

    No Jill, I do not believe a word you say or where you stand on this issue. Until you are capable of cleaning up your own act and telling Bravo that you will no longer be a part of this miserable display of entertainment than you are no better than the people who bully for fun. You need to examine your own contributions to this misery before you start offering solutions to the problem you continue to support.

    • buffywood says:

      Next time I need a letter written can I hire you to do it? You are amazing with your words.

    • MAMAZ says:

      Oh Olivia – If only you were addressing someone who could be motivated by reason that comment would be gold. Sadly JZ is only motivated by fame. Now if you could find a way for her silence on Twitter and disappearence from Bravo to shine a larger spotlight on her I’m sure she’d step away from the keypad/camera.

    • Need a Hobby says:

      Based on a recent comment by Jill as reported by radaronline, I suspect Bravo may be kicking her to the curb easing her out of RHONY.

      “When asked if she was excited about filming season 4 of The Real Housewives of New York Jill replied, ‘I can’t comment about that, but I am sure Bravo will make an official announcement in the very near future.’

      Normally, Bravo doesn’t make any cast announcements until their in promos before the new season begins—which would be next year. The exception was when they announced Danielle was no longer going to be on RHONJ. That’s the only precedent for Bravo publicly announcing cast changes.

      Who knows. Jill takes a vacay to Australia while Bravo’s cameras are filming RHONY in NYC? Not her usual behavior. :shrug:

      • ramona_coaster says:

        I was thinking the same thing. The whole cyber-bullying and reporting to your bosses thing seems something you’d say if you were frustrated, angry and had a stupid moment which we’ve seen from Jill before. Maybe the cause is because Bravo wants Jill out and she has to look for someone to blame. She needs to look in the mirror.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

  19. Adgirl says:

    May I weigh in on Phaedra? Bravo has selected to introduce her to us via certain ridiculous and uncouth remarks of hers. She also appears very high handed in her relationship.
    So far she is Marie Antoinette! Off with her head!!

    Haven’t we learned by now how Bravo frames a cast member “character” for us to like or dislike? Then Bravo tears down our fantasy about that person.

    Witness:
    – Cat in DC who most of us warmed up to by the end of the season.
    – Or how we enjoyed Jill’s yenta-ism before this past season?
    – How about Teresa in NJ? Didn’t everyone think she was the sweet one? That it was solely Danielle’s awful behavior at the dinner that drove Teresa to flip the table?

    Maybe Phaedra will be revealed to be a saint? That her silly proclamations are the worst of her? Perhaps she devotes hundreds of hours a year to mentoring young women. Maybe she does a routine at a comedy club mocking herself? (Yeah right.)
    We just don’t know. Yet.

    • Waxdiva says:

      How true… but we can snark and hate on her until she shows another side. Bwahahahaha…..

    • MAMAZ says:

      I think Phaedra is trying very hard to appear to be more than she is.
      Her announcement that white people eat meat out of cans wasn’t a racist remark. I doubt if Phaedra even believes it, she was trying to show how she is so much more refined than her husbands family. For goodness sake, southern cooking is pretty much the same whether you are white or black right? And none of it is what I would call refined. But it’s often delicious, hearty, flavorful food using every part of the animal or vegetable. Paula Deen cooks the same stuff as any soul food restaurant I’ve been too.

      I think her child rearing plan is more of the same. She wants us to believe she is the proverbial hand of steel in a velvet glove.

      It’s like she decided her “role” was going to be the Southern Belle, or what she thinks is the personification of the Southern Belle and she is going to play it out as long as she can. She just doesn’t get how ridiculous and transparent her act is.

      • twoile says:

        Ditto!!!!!!;0)

      • Savannah111 says:

        Let me just say this about Phaedra she may would like to think of herself as a southern belle but PLEASE believe me when I tell you there’s not one ounce of anything Southern Belle about this Bi*** ok NOTHING.. The only thing Southern about her is her MOUTH her BIG MOUTH and the fact she’s from the south. That line she says when she’s in bed on the phone she said honey I’ll go to any court room anyday because when you play me your playing yourself. Thats nothing but street language, the real Southern Belles of the south you can find them retired sitting having their morning paper rocking in their rocking chairs thinking of the days that have been and gone these lovely charming ladies are the real deal they are the true Southern Belle’s of Georgia and if by gossip they heard this crazy woman’s banter I’m sure they are finding it very hard to swollow. God know I AM and I’m born and raised in the south but I’m no Southern Belle.

        Phaedra is telling a bunch of lies and shame on her, but this is one woman that will continue to feel and pay a heavy price for her stupidty in all her remarks she’s made it’s actually shameful and this is what only the 3rd episode in God help us.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      While I can agree that Bravo may show her in a more redeeming light as the season progresses – I also have to say that what was filmed/came out of her mouth was her choice! Lawyers generally have a good command of the english language – she could have chosen her words more judiciously! As for the Elvis sneer and laser eyes….she has to own that mess too!

  21. TrueLifeDiva says:

    Whoooo! I’m famous now ;-) Maybe MickeyMouth can be inspired to do a Phaedra caricature of some sort. She’s got lots of material to work with…..

    Vicki, Vicki, Victory :-( I’ve been watching the syndicated reruns. I’ve never cared for this loud, sloo footed, beast of a woman with unfortunate facial features. Yesterday they showed the episode where she gave her assistant a makeover. It was sweet at first, until she revealed she was also getting a Brazilian wax, because the poor girl “Didn’t know how to properly groom down there” She thought it was SO funny. What a bitch! Each season has featured Vicki being controlling or nasty.
    1. Showing up unannounced at her son’s dorm with a kegger. “Whoo hoo! Where’s the party at?”
    2. Surprising Briana with a car that came with a car note. Is it really a gift if the recipient has to pay for it?
    3. Being mad a Jeanna for not charging FULL rent to her decorator while construction was going on at the property. “Everyone pays rent.” Yeah Vicki, try charging $2,000 a month for a house under renovation and see who signs that lease.
    4. Putting Jeanna on blast for asking to borrow money. It’s one thing to decline, it’s cruel to embarrass that person on national t.v. by revealing that request.
    5. Never including Donn in any fun stuff or vacations. You work around everyone’s schedule BUT Donn’s. Not cool :-(
    6. Constantly crowing about working. We get it… you work hard, so what?

    It’s sad they are divorcing. I never thought too much of Donn. He always seemed drunk to me, but I guess he needed something to drown out Vicki’s screeching. I was touched when he blubbered like a baby at their vow renewal ceremony. He truly loves that woman and love is a beautiful thing. I wonder if Vicki will ever understand that. I thought she was on track to becoming a better person. Maybe, just maybe she was blinded by the spotlight but back to reality when she gave Donn a ring bigger than hers (overlook karat/cost blurted during vows). I guess I was wrong.

    And of course, I still hate Jill Zarin ;-)

    • Olivia says:

      Like you, I have been catching up on the original OC series playing on my local station.

      Vicki “Whoo Whoo!” is just plain annoying. All she does is talk about her job, her money, her “things” while trying to control every aspect of those kids lives. They are expected to kiss her ass for all the things she does for them and obey her unconditionally or else. I felt sorry for her husband who basically stood on the sidelines waiting for his next set of instructions as she minces around with her boobs hanging out criticizing everybody and everything because Vicki “is always right”.

      But she is back for Season #6 which tells us that her tv career supercedes anything else going on in her life as we witness yet more boring episodes that have lost their meaning after Season #3.

      Like Jill Zarin, Vicki is one of the more insufferable people coming out of this franchise. And that is saying a lot since there are many more on the list who could easily be as qualified to share that spot. But the “Whoo Whoo!” got to me after the first few showings and she maintains that position along with Jill hands down.

    • TrueLifeDiva says:

      Oh, I forgot one the worst episodes of all. The “My boobs want to come out and play” comment literally had me gagging. I was like, is she serious? Does this heifer think she is cute? Ugh!

      • Olivia says:

        Yes, she does think she is cute. She really felt a lot of jealousy when that other ho bag, Lauri, finally snapped up her own Sugar Daddy in “George”, quit her job, and stayed home as another kept woman.

        As for Lauri, she runs a close second to Vicki in the “most annoying” department on this franchise. Those kids were simply props as far as she was concerned and poor Josh felt it the most. And if you look at Lauri real close, she is really very unattractive. So much work was put into her face that it looks unreal from all angles.

        At least Jo was up front enough to want to get away from this group and that idiot Slade who kept her under a Bell Jar for his own purposes. Jo may have had her flaws but she was not about to get sucked into this group without putting up a fight.

        • TrueLifeDiva says:

          You don’t even have to look closely at Lauri to see that mess. I started watching right around when she got engaged and I was mesmerized by her top lip. Every episode I would try to freeze the screen and look at that lip. I couldn’t figure out if it was a scar of some sort or a badly repaired cleft palate situation. And the tons of pancake make up didn’t help. Her top lip literally does not move when she speaks.

          • Olivia says:

            OMG! I thought I was bad enough criticizing these media hounds but to think that you actually “froze” the screen to get a better look at her lip puts even me to shame!

            Lauri completely turned me off when she was dressing in babydoll pajamas to attend the Hugh Hefner PJ party while her poor kid wallowed in Juvenile Hall. Then the white gown for her third or fourth wedding.

            Give me a break! I kind of got the feeling that she may have lost her “privilege” to wear white sometime around her 14th birthday and it had nothing to do with her riding that horse in Idaho!

        • Savannah111 says:

          Hey you guys a question, remember when the OC first came on and Slade was clearly a responsible person he had a job he saw his kids etc.. What the hell happened? He;s now IMO a straight up Bum isn’t that strange I wonder what happened?

          • Adgirl says:

            Obviously he was faking normality. If I were his ex-wife who takes care of the kids (especially the fatally ill child) my blood would be boiling every single time this jerk is on TV. He is over $80,0000 in arrears on child support. What a first class turd. If Juicy and Teresa break up I wonder how good he will be in paying his support??

    Tim Gunn speaking first person about teen suicide is compelling. Jill Zarin giving a half baked thought to cyberbullying solutions is sick!

      Well, she’s got a point I guess….there are probably a lot more toasters in Utah than there are free range sharks….so the likelihood of being done in by a shark is much less than chance of being assassinated by a toaster. I mean, toasters are sneaky. Liable to leap into your tub without warning while you’re bathing. And they intentionally trap toast and burn it so you’ll be tempted to stick a metal fork in there. I’m surprised though that she’s unaware of the casualties related to ovens. That’s a whole ‘nother story.

      There is *some* basis for that. My mom was adamant that we *never* leave the toaster plugged into the wall. It seemed we could (almost) get away with anything, but leave the toaster plugged in? All hell broke loose.

      “Hoping?” She probably badgered the photog and TMZ until they actually took a pic and posted it. She’s a potential bunny boiler, that one is. She will not be ignored.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      don’t you love the accidentally on purpose model pose? someone should have told her wonky tatas they didn’t get the message!!

  34. WindyCityWondering says:

    Toda! y’s Popeater has Teresa complaining via friends that she deserves more money. She understands why her kids can’t get paid – child labor laws dontcha know. Caroline’s kids get paid yet none of the other NJ kids get paid. But why can’t Bravo at least set up college funds for Teresa’s crew or pay for the babysitters she has to hire when she is forced to do public appearances ( ah T – book signings, magazine articles/photo shoots that hawk your book aren’t Bravo Housewife events)???
    So Melissa has been filming for months – is she a replacement for Teresa should the big house call??? Keep holding out T – we won’t miss ya and you can watch next season from where ever you will be living.

  35. AZ Girl says:

    Follow up blog from Phaedra (sp?) posted on Bravo.com to clear up her comments from yesterday’s blog and this week’s show.

    She writes:

    I have received numerous comments about the remarks that I made on the episode that aired on Monday, October 18, 2010. I feel the need to respond to those comments, because I believe my remarks were generally misunderstood and are being used to portray me as someone I am not. I am not a racist. My heart has always been open to people of all races, ethnicities, and walks of life. If that were not the case, I would not have fallen in love with and married a man who is biracial and was raised by a white woman. The reality is that we live in a society where matters of race are not discussed honestly or openly for fear of being labeled a racist. And that really needs to change if we’re going to move forward in any meaningful way as a melting pot of ideas, viewpoints, and experiences. While I do regret any discomfort or offense that my comments may have caused, I believe it is important that we use opportunities like this to create forums for dialogue and growth, not for personal attacks.

    • Need a Hobby says:

      Ha! She makes effin stupid comments and all of a sudden she makes herself out to be some social reformer dealing with serious issues of race……like canned food? Really? Really? This is like an SNL skit.

      Oh please. This woman’s a joke.

      • AZ Girl says:

        I agree. Bringing up comments about canned food, black parents are more strict with their children and beating her unborn child is just ignorant. I have a feeling we are going to get a whole season of “disclaimer blogs” from this woman.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Maybe she should keep her opinions to herself – or come visit a blog that is having a dialog on her poor choice of words…..poor Apollo has to listen to this drivel 24/7!

  36. Dawn says:

    I couldn’t sleep last night and did something that I don’t normally do – watched Patti Stanger’s show (second airing last night). Not only was she a witch on a broom but there wasn’t a single successful match made in the entire show. How was she initially allowed to tout such a highly statistical rate? Did Bravo simply take her at her word?

    Chelsea wasn’t on the show and she was sorely missed. Patti is too abrasive to watch and she treats her clients like dirt. Are people really paying for her services? Who were the people that were hoodwinked into hiring her before she was given her own show?

    I hope this season is her last.

  37. Kokuanani says:

    Does this [the fact that thie"break-up" occurred during filming] mean we’re going to see Vicki “react” — fake tears, rending of garments, howling, drinking?

    Because that’s gonna be FUN!!!

    • MAMAZ says:

      I’m guessing we’ll see a lot of Vicki talking about her empty love tank, how Donn didn’t invest anything in the marriage, that she had to do all the work, blah, blah, blah.

  38. Adgirl says:

    Since there are so many newly single RH I think Bravo should force them onto Patti’s show. I’d love to see the trolls Stanger tries to fix LuAnn with.

  39. Olivia says:

    I feel so “liberated” by refusing to watch either Atlanta or BH! Perhaps I may watch the last part of the DC reunion show but I am not sure. Another hour of Salahi bashing followed by the other self righteous idiots who, without those two grifters, would not have brought enough interest for the viewers to tune into.

    Another evening of Mary and the damned closet, or Lynda’s dog pooping all over the back lawn is not enough to entice. Or maybe we can find out why good old Cat is unable to find a publisher for her “tell all” book that few have any interest in.

    Either way, without the horrible Salahi’s it would have been weeks and weeks of nothing.

    Bring on Paul Wharton, the only one I actually liked!

    • Adgirl says:

      I’ll bet Cat’s problem locating a publisher has to do with potential litigation based on what the publishers think could be unfounded and defamatory statements in her book.
      Additionally, it has become incredibly difficult for a first time author to get published these days let alone someone who ran around her home country with tales of snogging or shagging one of the Princes.

  40. jeang says:

    Well, I couldnt stay shut up for long. So Kelly thinks she scored pretty good with that tmz pic today, but the downer for her is that only 19% would do her over 81% audrina. I would love to see the pics of those 19% that Would do her.!!!!! Yuck, can you say losers?

  41. Waxdiva says:

    I’ve been on the lookout for any news about Treetrunk’s bankruptcy hearing yesterday and came across this re Cat:

    “According to Cat, it was the idea of Charles’ boss at Newsweek Cat should do Real Housewives of DC. RHODC, a way to promote Charles’ ‘talent’. In the first episode of RHODC, Cat promoted Charles and Charles’ work.” Read more:

    • buffywood says:

      I’ve been looking too and couldn’t find anything. One article said her next court date was Oct 25th but I don’t know if that was for something else or a reschedule. They should probably think about getting an apartment close to the court house as they will be spending a lot of time there.

  42. cusi77 says:

    Hello Everyone!

    Lynn you have and email, dear!

  43. Just an FYI for anyone taking medication for menopause or menopausal-related symptoms, an important study came out today, and apparently risks for synthetic hormones are even worse than suspected, so please please check with your doctor. (there are replacement meds to the ones that were mentioned today, so don’t let that stop you from checking).

    Someone jokingly suggested that I could be interested in Vicki’s Don, now that they are splitting, and the funny thing is that I thought the same thing! If he only lived on the East Coast, he’s a really nice guy, the kind of guy, (from what we could see on tv), that I would love to meet when my divorce is over.

    Speaking-of divorce, I bet that Don is too nice of a guy to ask for support or alimony, but if he does, or even if he doesn’t, I think that he is a good example of a man that would be entitled to, and maybe even deserves alimony, or spousal support.

    Especially if he was a stay-at-home Dad, or participated in the “stay-at-home”, during the child-raising years. (that’s why they give support & alimony to women, and it is fair that the parent that who raised the children while the other advanced their career receives compensation in the event of divorce).

    -But Vicki would probably know that already, so I’m real interested to see how they settle things. If she doesn’t treat him fairly, I would consider that to be another sign of disrespect to parents who take care of their families & children. I mentioned on the previous blog how insulted I was by her attitude last season where she repeatedly made comments about how she, “worked”, (ie: recieved a paycheck), and insinuated that being a mother is not, “work”.
    She had a lot of balls in her confessional segments telling this one & that one to, “get a job”.
    If she had said, “maybe they could get another job in addition to being a full-time mom.”, I could understand, but you don’t go on National TV and tell any mom to “get a job.”-because they already have one. How disrespectful to other mothers, and “stay-at-home”, or Homemaker Fathers.
    I think that its about time the she got called on that one.

    • Adgirl says:

      Donn does have a career. He was an executive at Home Depot. I’m not sure what he’s been up to recently (maybe still there?). But he is not at SAHD.

  44. Adgirl says:

    Picture of Vicki & Donn at their ReNewal, errm, vow renewal. She’s holding a bouquet. Donn has some sort of framed certificate.

    I’m dying to know what it reads
    “…. the undersigned agrees to
    Obey her
    and Worship her
    and Agree with her
    and Top off the Love Tank of her
    and Park your balls at the door of home belonging to her
    blah blah.

  45. lillybee says:

    Looks like Vicki is getting what she deserved.

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      I hope Don gets what he deserves. They had a few properties, and Vicki has alot of money. Who knows…Don may be happy with a paid condo, a car, and a six figure lump sum payment. She better pay up, because unless he cheated, he’s got a great case for cruel and inhuman treatment, coupled with irreconcilable differences. i.e. she’s a bitch yall! LOL

  46. buffywood says:

    OT but did any see today that Octo-mom was actually implanted with 12 embryos? What a whack job. I am not sure what is more disturbing, getting implanted with 12 embryos or creating over 75 embryos in the first place (I think she has 18 or so remaining).

    “In hearings this week, an expert witness for the state testified that Suleman’s medical records show Kamrava implanted 12 embryos in the pregnancy that gave Suleman octuplets. National guidelines recommend no more than two embryos for a woman her age.

    In less than eight years, Kamrava repeatedly performed in vitro fertilization for Suleman, implanting her with 60 fresh embryos that resulted in 14 children.”

    Dawn – Is your niece okay? I’m glad they were finally able to get the school to cooperate and put a stop to the nonsense.

    • Dawn says:

      Thank you for asking. She is doing well (in spite of the harassment). Thankfully, she has a strong disposition.

      How was it this was allowed to initially be slipped under the rug? (Take 2 girls, victim and perp., have one say I’m sorry in the v. principal’s office, don’t call parents, call it a successful resolution).

      Off my soapbox. You read about such things but are still surprised when they occur in your city and no one reacts to protect the child(ren).

  49. Wall St Lady says:

    Ad girl & other Fatty haters,
    I am waiting for some one Fatty berates to knock the meanness out of her.
    I have wondered why so many paying customers & guests have allowed her to be so verbally abusive.
    I would love to see that teen age mom who beat her baby daddy square of w/Fatty.I would love to see her get slapped. I am sure Fatty is a coward. Most bullies r cowards.

    Me,on TV I would pull her wig off to reveal her hidden horn !

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Oh wise WSL – any news from the courts this week? Are Tre and Juicy any closer to a new residence – preferably with bars on the windows?

    • Adgirl says:

      There is something so terribly grotesque about her. Can’t put my finger on it specifically … maybe it’s everything. She is mean spirited.

    Pic from Kelly’s tweets.
    http://twitpic.com/2zdss0

    I think this picture is telling of Kelly.
    She also tweeted that she just met him (Joey Fatone) tonight.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      that poor girl looks likes she is STRAINING to get away from her. And of course there’s Kelly-all close up and personal with the guy

  52. Katie says:

    I love how Kelly’s pictures look like faux paparazzi shots.
    P.R. 103 Kelly, if paparazzi were taking photos of you they would not be leaked on your twitter.

    She probably tells her kids to run ahead of her and yell Johan face.

  53. Wall St Lady says:

    Ad girl
    Fatty’s head is square w/a big bump in the middle.The bump is probably just her ill fitting wig.

    Her lips look like they always have a herpes break out if u look closely.I think her mouth is always open to practice giving BJs.

    Her tummy is so big she looks pregnant. She covers her tummy by wearing empire shirts & dresses.

    Her boobs r very low to her waist so she has to strap them up.After her girls r harnessed she wears low cut things because she thinks her deflated balloons r sexy & that she is desirable. (If u look at her hired help, mohawk/devil man & wife; u know she has noooooo taste or class).
    Her arms must have tattoos r b very fat as they r always covered up.

    She does have pretty & long legs. (See I can b objective).

    • Adgirl says:

      WSL! Hee hee. If you don’t have anything nice to say (except about her legs) sit down right next to me. I’ll buy the first 2 rounds. :)

      I’m still stunned that Jill wants to contact people’s employers if they tweet things the Court of Judge Jill Zarin deems bullying.

      I think she’s been demoted or fired by Bravo and still can’t believe it. She probably blames Bethenny but signed a contract or separation agreement with a gag order.

  54. Wall St Lady says:

    WindyCityWondering on October 20, 2010 at 10:07 pm

    Had Enough sent this to me :

    I just read the motion by the bank to lift the stay on the foreclosure and as I suspected, that buyss post is total BS. First, the residence was never in foreclosure. The document buyss.com posted says just that “prevented from foreclosing.” The motion is to be allowed to foreclose. Second, I checked the court records and although the records are about 3 weeks behind, there was no notice of a hearing on that motion that I could find. That motion was filed 12/3/09 which was just about 1 month after the bankruptcy filing, and so the “no payments post-filing” could refer to only one payment.
