I Hate Jill Zarin Happy New Year Bravo

I Hate Jill Zarin Bravo’s New Year’s Eve Party / Housewives New Year’s Messages January 2, 2011

Andy Cohen held his first New Year’s Eve broadcast complete with a countdown and rather than a ball drop, he had a wig drop in honor of Kim Zolciak and her wig. Kim sang Tardy For The Party which had to be the lowest point of the evening.

The fun began with Jeff Lewis and his sidekick Jenny who are always entertaining. There were housewives represented from every city except DC, Mary Amons even tweeted asking Andy why the DC housewives weren’t represented at his party, but he never responded, another bad sign for DC. which sort of gives us a hint of Bravo’s decision, it isn’t looking good for the DC franchise to return.

Andy rarely ignores tweets from his housewives.

Jenny also sang a song, another rap diddy about Bravo’s many offerings, unfortunately it was difficult to catch most of the lyrics but I’m sure would have been funny, if we could hear it.

There were a few fun moments, but more embarrassing and dull moments than anything else, the worst of which had to be the ridiculous wedding ceremony between Lisa Vanderpumps’ dog Giggy and Dina Manzo’s hideous cat, Grandma Wrinkles. That was 10 minutes I’ll never get back.

Do you suppose Andy purposely invited Housewives who weren’t all that fond of each other? Or did he send out the “let’s all be mean to Kim Zolciak” memo with the invitation?

Lisa got along with everyone but it’s no secret that NeNe and Kim aren’t getting along. Tamra clearly doesn’t like Kim, but she was a drunkin fool so who knows if she even knew what she was doing. Her fake attempt to yank Kim’s wig off was only funny to her and NeNe.

Jimmy Fallon did his impression of Neil Young singing Tardy For The Party, and Jeff Lewis made a snarky comment about lip syncing that Kim took offense to, then toward the end of the show apparently Kim got a wig full of silly string and since she was the only sober one there, didn’t find that the least bit funny. Apparently her $2,000 wig was ruined and once the cameras stopped rolling she got even by throwing her drink on Jeff Lewis, here is Jeff’s tweet:

JL_Jeff_Lewis: Still recovering from NYE. WWHL camera didn’t catch @KimZolciak throwing her drink on me after my off color comment. I probably deserved it.

Just before sign off Andy asked NeNe what she thought of Kim’s performance, NeNe’s response, “Happy New Year!” was polite and a jab all at the same time.

Tamra was sure to be front and center on screen for her make out session with her newest squeeze, boyfriend Eddie Judge then made sure that she set her sights on Andy Cohen. Maybe she didn’t get the memo that Andy’s gay, and her boss because he tried to give her the polite peck and she went in for the kill, even looking like she was trying to slip him the tongue, later she was pressing up against another gay man, Jeff Lewis. I think Tamra was trying to get herself naked wasted.

Ellen Barkin, Sarah Jessica Parker and the 13-year old Housewives fan, Ben Weiner all called into the show but it was a bit disappointing to read a tweet from Tabatha Coffey who said she tried to call in and couldn’t get through. But they were sure to put Ben Weiner’s call right through. Ridiculous!

The stupid games and idiotic Mazel awards were just filler material that was a complete waste of time except the only one that mattered, the final Mazel of the Year was presented to Betty White, who of course was not there and didn’t even send in one of those pre-recorded video acceptance speeches.

Dina Manzo was there with her creepy cat and her newly adopted dog who unfortunately lost its two front paws, Dina was, as always, a dull guest.

I think the majority of the group there were trashed but probably none more than Jeff Lewis, I can’t decide if he’s really mean or if he’s just trying to create a mean persona for television as he shot the pregnant woman with silly string, threw Andy’s homeless doll and called Andy the “gayest man on television”, is that an insult? Andy threw the same title back at Jeff Lewis as if neither one of them wanted to own that.
No reports at this point of Kim getting caught smoking a cigarette or drinking any alcoholic beverages so either she’s behaving or she’s hiding it a whole lot better.

Here are some of the Tweets about the evening’s festivities and New Year in general:

@KimZolciak: In the bathroom at Bravo last night look what the mirror said! My famous line @BravoAndy lol http://plixi.com/p/67285133

A Fan said to Kim : Could not believe Tamara did that. NeNe and Tamara are two peas in a pod. Jealous you are lovin life!

@kimZolciak responds: Say it! :)

    Loved the NYE show on WWHL and hope Andy does it every year.

    IMO, the show never had a dull moment and reminded me of a cross between ‘Pee-Wee’s Playhouse’ and ‘Playboy After Dark’…

    I’ve watched it several times and each time find the guest’s interactions with Andy and each other extremely telling… Nene trying to outdo Sandra Bernhard on the sofa (nice try, Nene), Nene’s scowling in the background when KimZ is talking with Andy, the various bit players that gathered during the countdown to midnight (wasn’t that Dina’s sister, Cookie?) and Tamra giving Andy that big, sloppy kiss… and those are just the highlights. Just loved that everyone got sloshed and had a great time.

    IMO, JillZ is trying to use the hate card (again!) because Lynn called her out on her location when she used another fake name to leave a comment on this site. Way to go, Lynn!!

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      wax diva- completely agree! Jill is all icky because she got caught …again.

      • quincyil says:

        It doesn’t take much to send Jill over the cliff. She probably read the board all weekend.

        • LynnNChicago says:

          Apparently the rumor mill is spreading around that Bethenny sent me a case of SkinnyGirl Margaritas, DAMN I wish that one were true. Bethenny, if you’re reading this, I’m happy to send you my address to make this one come true! That stuff is $17.99 a bottle at the local liquor store…I’d happily take a case of it!

          I don’t drink much but I’d send you all a bottle each…I share!

          • quincyil says:

            Well, I sure hope that you are going to share the largess with your guest blogging team.

            I have never mentioned this before, but I have a crush on Simon van Kempen. He and I have a relationship. I once sent Alex and Simon a facebook message and he returned a nice note to me.

            Let the rumors fly…. Every word of this is the truth. Everyone here knows that I have a thing for men with accents.

            I bet a lot of you are rotfl right now. I also liked Captain James T. Kirk and John Crichton. I can’t help it.

            • Rabble Rouser says:

              He once sent me a DM asking me to check out their book.

              We have a deep relationship that discussed not only literature but business transactions all in one.

            • sammyjoesmom says:

              I said a couple days ago that I asked Simon if he would give any hints about next season. He replied, “NO!” ….I think we are having Christmas together next year.

              • Rabble Rouser says:

                I think you aren’t being completely forthcoming with us.

                You are planning on running away together- admit it.

          • BessiB says:

            If I were her, I would send you a case.

    • Jennifer Neehan says:

      Happy New Year all. And best wishes for the 2011.

      What is wonderful about this group is how we can be friends and see things differently. I wasn’t that thrilled with Andy’s New Years Party. Wish others had been there and there had been group interactions. Having people sit in the back to me was a bit tacky. I loved Jeff Lewis and Jenny and their interactions. NeNe to me has become a one act Diva – and Kim Z., I have nothing to say about her that is polite. But mostly I felt sorry for the animals. The legless dog seemed to be happy but Ziggy and Grandma were not happy. I feel for children and animals that have stage mothers. I was surprised they didn’t have Teresa there. Wonder why????????

      Jen

  2. plainviewsue says:

    Hey. I had to fast forward thru most of the show. You said only DC wasn’t represented, but there wasn’t anyone there from NY either. Which is surprising since it took place in NY. My guess is they were all off elsewhere.

    The show was a bit embarrasing. But I guess that was the point!!

    • Waxdiva says:

      Embarrassing? How?

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        I thought it kinda dragged, and it was aw-kward. Just seemed like a lot of forced hilarity.

        Like “we are having a GREAT time!”

        “No really, we ARE! FUN, FUN, FUN!!!”

        “Aren’t we having FUN!?!? umm…guys? AREN’T WE HAVING FUN!”

        “yeah whatever you say Andy.”

        “If you ladies want your contracts renewed you KNOW you are having fun RIGHT?”

        “OMG WE ARE HAVING SO MUCH FUN!!!”

        • Waxdiva says:

          OMIB: Didn’t get that vibe at all…
          Would like to get plainviewsue’s opinion…

          • OneMoreInBoston says:

            oh.

          • LynnnSoCal says:

            I DVR’D it. Admittedly my humour is bit twisted. Jimmy Fallon alone was worth it. Random catty comments. Dina looked like she was having intestinal issues. Jeff Lewis is such a bitch! LOL! Really enjoyed pushing Kim’s buttons. Lexie looked so grownup. What a roomful of dysfunction. Putting on the closed captions helped a lot. Totally lame, I love me some Andy! Those ladies needed double stick on the strapless! Do you think Batman chonies went home with Andy or Jeff?
            e

            • WaxDiva says:

              OMG… I’m not a big fan of Jimmy Fallon, but his Neil Young ‘Tardy for the Party’ was hysterical. Twisted sense of humor? Hmmm… how about ‘expanded’ sense of humor?? You and I have an expanded sense of humor…
              Batman pants was a huge hit… Jeff said he was in a relationship (I was looking for the guy at midnight), so maybe Andy took Andy (batman pants) home.

              • LynnnSoCal says:

                I’ll take expanded! Someone needs to get that poor wrinkled “pussy” away from Dina. Why weren’t the NYC nuerotics there? I would love to hear Kim and Countless do a duet! Charming I’m sure! Phaedra’s pickle comment was just out there random.

          • plainviewsue says:

            I just thought they were all trying too hard to look like it was fun, but it wasn’t. Neenee & Lisa’s “cat” fight; the ridiculous wedding of the dog and the cat.

    • BessiB says:

      It was on my DVR, so I zipped through it. I did try to listen to Jena’s rap song, but I could not understand what she was saying either, so gave up. I had heard her do similar things on WWHL before, and cannot figure out if it is serious or suppose to be a joke.

      I could hardly understand what SJP was saying on the phone, either.

      I did catch Jeff’s unwed mother comment – I think it was after Andy congratulated her? – and thought that was probably the high light of the evening. He said what I was thinking.

  3. Humbruh says:

    Jeff Lewis was off the rails & I loved every second of it. Did anyone besides me catch the comment he made about Kim having another kid out of wedlock?

    I boycotted the retarded NYE show. Couldn’t stand to even watch Andy’s dorky ads for it and I won’t listen to KimZ sing ever again. New Year’s resolution. I love that Jill read her blog and that she and her alter ego #12 were called out. And please tell me why Jill’s bully brigade keeps calling everyone else bully’s?

    • kbinldo says:

      Projection. ;) You accuse other people of doing what you yourself are. But you do have to pity JZ because if it weren’t for her constantly stirring stuff up, no one would be paying attention to her anymore.

      • American Idiot says:

        Jill does not know the difference between criticism and bullying.

        • quincyil says:

          She criticizes every thing and every one. Remember the meeting preparing for her charity where she did not like anything offered to her and Bethenny knew it was going to be featured on RH NYC? That comment about Sonja and her tongue down someone’s throat was outrageous. The comment about Alex’s photos was vile.

          No one ever says anything like those statements here. Even the trolls have better manners than Jill Zarin.

      • sammyjoesmom says:

        You are exactly right!!! Good call.

  8. icantstandthetoxicity says:

    Jill is losing her marbles AGAIN. She tweeted her psychic and asked her if she can cleanse her apartment. This is the psychic that Jill played the infamous “get a hobby” message for last season on RHONY.

    Jillzarin @JRMedium can you come over and cleanse my apt? My fans are worried about us .

    What are Jill’s fans worried about? LOL

  9. kbinldo says:

    I was going to watch the Bravo show, but got more interested in seeing if Kathy Griffin would get hauled off on air for swearing. ;) I’ve got an AC article about that to write. NYE in my town is, um, interesting.

    • sammyjoesmom says:

      Don’t kill me but I am pretty sick of Kathy Griffin. I still find her stand up really funny but I feel like the whole “I’m so outspoken” bit is so played out/ We get it Kathy. You are edgy.

  10. WindyCityWondering says:

    WWHL NYE party was not really that interesting. The ever suffering and boring Dina, the I need to get some Tamara cause I am so sexy, NeNe looked like a giant sausage and no one would give her diva props, Kim should have stayed home, the wig drop sucked and Jeff Lewis looked like he wanted to be somewhere else. Andy is not a good party host and sounded desperate and hammered. Maybe next year they can satellite Bravo stars in. On a positive note – I taped it and didn’t ruin my NYE!

    • quincyil says:

      The wig drop was really stupid, but so was the wedding between pets. Next year, use the writers from 30 rock… That would be a show.

      • WaxDiva says:

        Loved the wig drop! Did you know that Derek J did the wig drop ball?
        Even the lame wedding was something that no other show would have done…

        • Blue Sky says:

          settle down now WaxDiva! lol, you really loooovvvveee
          Andy! It’s okay, you are allowed to have this addiction as it is harmless.

          • Blue Sky says:

            If I could trade my addiction to chocolate for an addiction to Andy, I would in a New York minute

  11. kmuellfa says:

    Just wanted to bring over from the previous blog:
    Here are some stretches to help with plantar fasciaitis:

    http://www.heel-that-pain.com/heel_pain/stretch_exercise.php?gclid=CKy24Zv2nKYCFYa7Kgod2zVanQ

    Also, shoes with good arch support help, and a trick I use is freezing a water bottle and rolling your foot over it.

    • American Idiot says:

      Thanks, K. I will check it out.

    • buffywood says:

      I can’t believe I am actually going to post this but here it goes… when I was in my 20′s my mom had plantar fasciaitis and I took her to the foot doctor. Her doctor told her to roll her foot/arches over…. (drum roll please)…a vibrator. He said size and shape was perfect for stretching it out and the vibration helped increase blood flow…

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        now how exactly did the doctor know she had a vibrator?

        • TLM says:

          Oh for God’s sake. That is insane. I had the same thing and I had to have a cortisone shot in my heels, and then the doc taped my feet to allow them to heal. Putting them on anything that vibrates isn’t going to do anything for them. Unfortunately, all the solutions to PF are serious and painful themselves. Sounds like it was a pervy doctor’s fantasy.

          • buffywood says:

            What can I say? This was medical advice from 20 years ago. He told her to stand on it with lots of pressure and roll it back and forth under her arches and up the bottom of her heel. She also hat a flat foot problem. I was so moritifed I remember it like it was yesterday.

        • Amber...Real Wife says:

          She’ll have the happiest feet in town!

      • Blue Sky says:

        That’s kind of how I cured my plantar fasciaitis. By massaging my feet, really really hard (like rubbing the heel & bottom of your foot, you work up a sweat doing it…good exercise too!) before getting out of bed, then about 4 more times a day. Whenever it was hurting, my husband helped me too. He’s the one that first tried it, when my foot was aching bad. Now, I had p.f. for years. The foot doctor (he is a surgeon too) had me in a big black boot, to immobilize it, on crutches! I paid lots of money for a metal plate to be inserted in my walking shoes (famous brand, can’t remember it now.) Plus, a plastic blue boot at night, to keep it flexed. That wooden rod for rolling under your foot helped me too. I had it off & on for 10 plus years, in both feet. The only thing that worked for me was the massaging. And exercise – when my feet were hurting, the massaging & exercise really worked. Must be connected to circulation, for me. I’ve been pain free for almost 2 years.

  12. BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

    Thanks for A Fantastic Blog Lynn on Bravo’s NYE
    I was at the club helping out till 1 am~so I missed it.
    I read Portrait of JZ~I thought it was excellent. Maybe we can change the name of
    this website~
    I Hate The Things Jill Zarin Does~Then we could change it as she changes~not~lol
    Someday we will call it~Jill Zarin doesn’t suck anymore lol. Or~We Love JZ? That’s a long time coming.

  13. tinselkitty says:

    Well, isn’t it interesting that Lynn will post JZ’s tweet about hate bloggers being bullies but she won’t ‘fess up to what she did to me. Just like a bully, Lynn. That’s okay, JZ’s on the case and I’m sure I’ll be getting a personal call from her anytime now.

    For those of you who think Lynn is so great, let me just copy my tweet to JZ over here so there is no longer any doubt about her evil ways. That’s right, Lynn. I’m not going to cover it up anymore. You can’t bully me no mores!

    @Jillzarin – @LynnNChicago gave me a wedgie. I had on granny panties today. It was horrible. Please send help. And some new underwear.

    And how did mean bully Lynn respond?

    @tvTinsel ROFLMAO

    You’ll be paying for my kitty therapy, Lynn Hudson. Oh yes, you’ll be paying…

    • quincyil says:

      At first I thought you were serious, but then I looked at your linked name and discovered that you have a great sense of humor. I think I have some of the granny underwear in my drawers too.

    • Your a baaaaad kitty.. baaaad!! Even Tinsle won’t save you now…

      Truly.. Jill’s twattin tweet is beyond. What this woman will do to spread rumors or promote hate while trying to be a victim of hate is way to like Kelly Been Shmokin. It appears Kelly sooo rubbed off on Jill.

      • LynnNChicago says:

        Notice that Jill makes these statements but there are no examples, proof or anything to back up her statements. The problem is that people just blindly believe her. Luckily there are only 3-4 of Jill’s fans on Twitter :)

        • Ya know I just read your portrait of her today on AC and all her character defects had resurfaced for me and I started to hate it all over again!!! You musta pissed her off and I FLOVE IT!! lmaooooo This is just some of the backlash for the recent articles. You know damn well she has minions who google her senselessly to gauge her hate factor.. lmaooooo

          To be truthful.. I wouldn’t put anything past Jill for retaliation and would not walk down any dark Alleys Lynn!!

          LYNN!!!!!! YOUR IN DANGER GIRL!!!!

        • Nancy says:

          I don’t think ANYONE believes her!

  14. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @tinselkitty, you’re not the only one. One time Lynn spelled my name wrong. I was deeply hurt and she didn’t even correct it. If that’s not bullying I don’t know what is…

    • LynnNChicago says:

      TLD I did that on purpose just to piss you off :) lol

    • quincyil says:

      I bet you don’t have a single pair of granny underwear in your drawers. When you are lifting bales in 116 heat index and swear runs down your back… the granny underwear act like a sponge and keep your jeans from getting wet and falling off. They come in white and….white…. So handy….

      • Adgirl says:

        LOL. I love them when hiking… because they don’t hike (up my crack, you know!).

        Whacha mean they only come in white?? Not true! I have several lovely pairs in pastel pink and green. One pair with itty bitty blue flowers too. One for every occasion!!

        • quincyil says:

          The official granny underwear only comes in white. You must be buying an off brand.

          • Adgirl says:

            I think they are called Granny-Roos. The panty and battle-ax brassiere match.

            • quincyil says:

              That brand comes from Australia. We are talking about the “official” granny underwear made in China in large factories without proper ventillation. The label reads “”Official” Granny Underpants.” They are sold in Sear, Walmart, JC Penny and Dollar Stores. The best price is at the Dollar Stores. It’s a dollar.

              • Adgirl says:

                LOL. I will update my drawers to meet the Official Guidelines.

              • LynnnSoCal says:

                I can’t believe i’m going to publicly cop to this: I bought a pair this summer! This is killing me…I like them A LOT! Ok does this make me officially “older” or just comfy?

                • AZ Girl says:

                  Comfy and a lot less crabby.

                  • LynnnSoCal says:

                    I may be sarcastic and snarky but my friends will attest I’m not the cranky type. I’m actually weari g my big girl panties and hmmm, thongs may be going by the wayside. Hard to project the hip/ cool image knowing they’re under my leggings and covering my gigantic dragon “tramp stamp”. Think aging Dead Head! LOL!

              • good Lord Quincy you are making me laugh today………

  15. shamrockblonde says:

    I have found that I cannot watch Andy – I tolerate him for the reunion shows of Housewives, but have never watched his lame excuse of a show – never will either – needless to say, I did not watch his NYE disaster – instead, I spent my NYE watching a guy sleep into the new year, in innocence, peace and grace, his little fingers curled around mine – can’t think of a better way to celebrate the beginning of a new year – new chance – new start –

    my new year wish for all of you –

    Last day – first day –

    May it be the last of days that hold pain, sorrow and fear – may it be it be the first of days made bright with laughter, love and the ability to grow. May it be the last of days made heavy with anger, ignorance and fear – may it be the first of days made light with peace, acceptance and the company of loved ones. May it be the last of days spent holding on to hurt, and the first of days spent letting go and making room for the beauty that surrounds us each day.

    Thank you for a year of smiles – of learning – of friendship and warmth. Thank you for a year of being there when I needed somewhere to run. Thank you for the reminder that love is found anywhere if you only look – be merry – be happy and light of heart, and know I wish you all love, laughter, good health and safe journey -

    Happy New Year to all of you – make it count

      Beautiful Shamrock, thank you for sharing that! xo

    • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

      You are truly blessed~that is beautiful~Thank You Shamrock~
      I too am from Irish decent as well as a few others..

    • butterisafruit says:

      That’s what it’s all about Shamrock, you said it beautifully.
      I don’t watch Andy anymore. I do get a kick out of Lynn’s take on him though. I stopped watching him when he had Ellen Barkin and Manzo, all worshipping Manzo. I can’t stand Caroline, and besides Andy I can’t tolerate Ellen Barkin anymore either.

      • Sha2000 says:

        I like Andy. I think like certain regional jokes & slang (we’ve discussed here before), Andy appeals to a New york sense of humor…I get him.

    @ upthread you posted
    “…icantstandthetoxicity says:
    Jill is losing her marbles AGAIN. She tweeted her psychic and asked her if she can cleanse her apartment. This is the psychic that Jill played the infamous “get a hobby” message for last season on RHONY.
    Jillzarin @JRMedium can you come over and cleanse my apt? My fans are worried about us ….”

    OK this is so rich I cannot take it!
    “Cleanse my apt?”
    Hey Jill, call your BFF Kelly and ask her to bring a couple of cans of her favorite cleanser. You know, the rotorooter stuff she gave Sonja as a get acquainted gift.

    Somehere in my evil little mind I picture a rush of raw sewage pouring from Libarace-Versace central down the elevator shafts and carrying our dear Jill away … away..

    P.S. I am in love with all these Bravo psychics, mediums, gypsies & soothsayers who can’t see past their paycheck.

    • quincyil says:

      I have an explanation for the need of cleansing the apartment. Jill left Ginger in NYC in the apartment. She mentioned missing Ginger and wanting the dog to take the limo to pick Jill up at the airport. I think Ginger was upset and you know what happens. Obviously, the medium will wipe the slate clean in more ways than one.

      • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

        Too Funny Q! That’s one disgusting doggie~yuck..That’s all she will be good for anyway.

    Lynn & BaaBee – first generation Irish here – both of my parents were born in Ireland, though they met here in the States -

    • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

      My Great Grandparents on my Papa’s side were from Ireland~
      My full catholic name~Patricia Ann Katherine O’Connor
      Very nice to meet you Shamrockblonde~

      • quincyil says:

        I’m Irish too, but from the 1840′s and the Potato Famine. They arrived in NYC, but the government put them on a boat that went through the Great Lakes to Chicago. NYC had too many Irish.

        • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

          My papa’s family lived in NYC all their lives~he met my mama down south in TN when he was in the Air Force.
          That’s why I am now somewhere in between ;)

        • Adgirl says:

          Your family was lucky, many Irish wound up in the NY Five Points slum. Dozens of people to a room, no heat or ventilation. outhouse shared by hundreds with no cleaning … yuck.

          • quincyil says:

            Well, mine did well in Chicago. There was a little problem with the fire, but the city bounced back with a vengence.

          • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

            Yes I agree~we were far from rich but my grandfather & grandmother both hardworking.
            My grandpa had a construction & union job.
            My grandma had 6 children 3 boys & 3 girls.
            They always had a nice home & we always loved going there. They were all so much fun as well. Great sense of humor we are all blessed with.
            I agree with Q too, I believe we are all related in one way or another. I am also a Great Beach Boy Fan & went to all their concerts when I lived in Rockaway Beach NY. I was 16.

            • buffywood says:

              BaaBee love you full name. I too am of Irish Catholic decent and a huge Beach Boy’s fan. My grandfather (father’s father) became a professional boxer to support his family when he was young.

              • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

                Thank you Buffy~that’s so cool~
                dangerous though. My father went into construction after the service & was in a union with my grandpa too. My mama was an executive secretary they called them for Pepsi Cola for a while in Manhattan while we lived in Rockaway. We moved around NYC & Long Island too.

    • justanothermary says:

      I’m adopted, but birth parents were McDevitt and Calahan, so ya gotta figure that between that, the blue eyes, red hair and fair skin, there’s some Irish.

      • quincyil says:

        I think all of us are related. In fact, I know we are family.

        There has to be a reason that so many of us have similar experiences and thoughts.

      • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

        You sound like you should & could be my sister & very beautiful.

      I was born in Ireland :)

    • kbinldo says:

      Another Irish lass checking in, although we snuck out in the late 1600s-early 1700s. My direct ancestor & several of his brothers, uncles, cousins, fought in the Revolution.

      • LynnNChicago says:

        WOW There is a whole lot of Irish on this board. My folks came here in 1960 and my Dad has told me at least a million times that he had only $85 in his pocket at the time :)

        Luckily they’ve got a bit more than that now!

  18. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @QuincyIl, actually I do own some granny panties. 10 pairs for “that time of the month” ;-). The rest of the month? Thong thong thong thong thong!

    *Know That*

    • quincyil says:

      Now that this information is on the internet, we both should try to get gigs as granny underwear models. I think we can make a few bucks.

  19. Adgirl says:

    I don’t watch NYE shows. I would never watch WWHL if the RH weren’t on it. I dvr it and ff to the good parts, so its over in 4 minutes.

    Reading the various accounts Tamra, NeNe, Jeff, Kim and Dina I am struck by how this is all typical “look at me!” behavior by each of them :
    Tamra: Sexy-slutty “I’m hottt!”
    Jeff: Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog
    Kim: Flashy, trashy high camp
    NeNe: I’m still pissed about Kim singing, so I will upstage her by glaring at her.
    Dina: Constipated biotch.

  20. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @QuincyIl, okay doing squats and lunges now. Must..Tighten..Butt! :-D

    *Know That!*

    • quincyil says:

      Yes, prepare yourself for your new granny underpants modeling career.

      I just glanced at Jill Zarin’s twitter. She thanked her Aruba fans. Something is wrong. She told Andy in a tweet that Bravo was not on TV in Aruba so she could not watch his NYE show. How can she have fans in Aruba if they don’t have Bravo?

      • LynnNChicago says:

        haha I KNOW you already put all that together, comeon Quincy, you can do it LOL

        • quincyil says:

          Well, I do have a sense of imagination. I would like to thank all of my fans in New York City. I appreciate your welcoming me when I visited in July of 2009. I’m sure the clapping at the end of each Broadway Play was really for me. The boat that took me on a tour of the Statue and Liberty was just for me. The buses stopped so I could get on and off the tour of Manhattan whenever I wanted. Whenever I went to a restaurant, I was seated at a table and served special foods. Yes, thank you…thank you… fans of mine in NYC.

          • BessiB says:

            You may have fans, but did you know that Sara Jessica Parker is a good friend of mine? She lives just 10 locks away from where I use to live. Oh and I was BFFs with the late Katherine Hepburn – we talked often (“Hi”) as she her townhouse was around the corner from our office, and we carried in her groceries from the cab, once.

            • quincyil says:

              Well, Kate Hepburn is a real Hollywood movie star. I’m not surprised the you would jump at the chance to carry her groceries. I would wash her floors, if she wanted them washed.

          • WindyCityWondering says:

            A theory – anyone who doesn’t say anything to upset Jill is considered a “fan” – afterall, she is a reality superstar (opps that’s Bethenny), a best selling author (oops wrong again) and known for her fabulous branding and marketing skills (opps, again that is Bethenny!)……sorry Jill guess my theory is just a fantasy like your hugh fan base.

      • butterisafruit says:

        You’re right Bravo is not even known t in Aruba. She probably paid a bunch of rum runners to follow her around.

        • Adgirl says:

          Satelitte feed into bars? 2 drink minimum.

          Maybe Bawby paid the local tv station to broadcast the old shows so the subjects would recognize their new Empress?

      • BessiB says:

        Good catch.

        Her IQ has to be around 20!

  21. boston02127 says:

    Great recap, Thanks Lynn. You’re right about the lowest part was when Kim “sang”. I saw parts of the show but I did catch that part and thought she can’t even lip sync well.

  22. TEB says:

    I just finished watching Andy’s NYE show. It drove me a little nuts that you couldn’t hear all the things that people were saying. I thought Tamara hated Kim and I’m pretty sure she called Jeff Lewis an ass (it looked like thats what she mouthed to Lisa when they were on the sofa together). I thought NeNe was a little conceited. It was too disjointed for me.
    Why was Megan McCain there? I don’t understand her connection to Bravo??

    • Adgirl says:

      Megan McCain is this eras Patty Reagan.
      If Bristol Palin were smarter she would bad mouth her mom and the politcal right. Then she’d be invited everywhere.

  23. shamrockblonde says:

    ’tis a pleasure to meet you as well baabee – my parents grew up in Rockaway but actually met when my Mom attended a company dance – my Dad saw her and he a couple of his brothers – he was one of nine children – crashed the dance so that he could meet her and dance with her – it’s funny how such a small event can bring about an entire family history – my Dad was born in County Cork – my Mom is from Roscommon -

    • Adgirl says:

      Hey Shamrock. I’m Irish by marriage.
      I’ve been divorced from a Feeney for a long time but I still talk to my MIL in NY every month. I adore the huge, laughing, bickering family.
      Every Christmas we’d gather round the basement bar at the in-laws. Everytime old Dad left the room one of his grown boys would losen a Christmas light on the string around the bar causing it to blink and go out. Old Dad would return and start fiddling with every bulb until he found the loose one. We’d have tears in our eyes trying to keep from laughing.

      My kids keep up the laughing and bickering. My son is tall with flaming red hair and beard.
      My ex use to cry at the drop of a hat. At baseball games he’d weep through the Star Spangled Banner. LOL. Good times.
      Turns out all of the men have gout. Many get kidney stones too. Is that common in Irish?

      • buffywood says:

        The males in my Irish family tend to cry at Avi Maria. It is almost comical. I love my loud, laughing, bickering family!

      • ramonacoaster says:

        I just did a paper on kidney stones and it’s common in white men. Gives us women a break. We usually suffer from other diseases that don’t affect men as much. I’m not sure if it’s an Irish thing. But it does run in the family. If you’ve had stones once, you’ll most likely have it again within 8-10 years. You can prevent it by changing your diet depending on what type of stone it is – calcium, calcium oxalate, uric, cystine… and drinking water.

        • Adgirl says:

          My son controls his diet to keep the gout at bay. He still has to take the meds or he’d be bedridden some days.

        • BambiBaby22 says:

          “I just did a paper on kidney stones…..”

          Oh boy, I must be delirious frome giving up sugar, I just read the above quote TOTALLY wrong…….I was picturing a piece of paper with actual kidney stones on it, like once they passed, someone put them on paper! geesh!

    • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

      That is so wild Shamrock~what year was that? Maybe we knew each other or I your parents. You are younger than me for sure but I may have known your mama & papa? What are their names if you don’t mind me asking?
      You & how they met are so sweet..

  24. ramonacoaster says:

    Love that you caught JZ posting under another pseudonym from Aruba. Gave me a chuckle. Do you think she steals her friends’ names, like Susan Saunders? Wouldn’t that piss someone off? I guess as long as she has Bobby’s money she wouldn’t care if she pissed anyone off as long as she comes off as looking squeaky clean.
    I wondered why Dina looked so pissed at the NYE party. Maybe someone asked her, “And you are?”

    • Adgirl says:

      Dina is just pissy in general.
      I think they all acted like extreme versions of themselves. Not that I watched it or anything. LOL. I waited until Lynn posted her blog so I could make comments without having to damage my ears.

      Jeff. He’s a sarcastic snarky queen? Really?
      NeNe. She’s pissed at Kim. Especially about Kim’s “singing”. Really?
      Tamra. She’ll rub against a nun if she can be called hot. Really?
      Lisa. The dog valet.
      Dina. Go get laid or something.

  25. Marly says:

    Who was there from NY? They were absent as well as DC!! Tamra was embarrassing. I hate the way she always acts like she’s in heat. I wish NeNe and Kim were getting along, I like it when they are friends. Jenny really got the shaft with her rap, and normally I think Jeff Lewis is hilarious but he was really rude and that comment about SJP’s kids being up too late…on NYE? Really? Ben Weiner was the only sane call they had! Ellen Barkin sounded off her rocker! Too many guests….

    Oh and Lisa and NeNe had a mini cat fight, so she didn’t get along with everyone. Lisa called NeNe out for saying they looked like they had too much plastic surgery, or something and although she denied that, she said The BH Housewives were “boring”. That was not fun to watch in a party atmosphere. Lisa could have waited for another time.

    Is anyone else getting tired of Giggy??? There are so many cuter Housewife doggies.. Like COOKIE! :) :) :)

    • Sha2000 says:

      Lol, I laughed when NeNe called the BH show boring & fake, I really think she was just having fun poking at Lisa & I think Lisa got it & played back.

      • HD says:

        Until Lynn’s blog I did not even notice there was not representation from all the shows. I have to assume Bravo asked and these women may have been obligated. Quite honestly with their “minor” fame I am sure they have parties and appearances to make and may have already obligated themselves. That is why I was shocked NeNe of all people was there. I didn’t anticipate her staying the entire show.

        I think Giggy is a cute dog. He is. But okay…let it go. All those outfits and blah blah blah. I think she does that because 1. she has too much money and too much time on her hands 2. her kids are grown and this is her little “baby”. We get it, the dog is cute.

    • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

      Hi Marly,
      I thought the poor thing needed to be home in it’s mama’s arms or papa’s.
      I cannot believe the torture they put these animals through. My kitties would have had none of what they did to that poor hairless kitty either.
      Maybe they should have robot dogs & cats that are motorized like the fake babies they give teenage girls who want to have a baby at 14. ;)
      Cookie doesn’t seem to want to be in the spotlight very often either.

  26. HD says:

    Happy New Year Lynn and to all the wonderful posters here of course too many to name but a few stand out for me….Quincy, OMIB, Boston, TLD, Error404, Adgirl, Had Enough, Rabble Rouser…so many wonderful women to kick start of new year of HATING JILL! I don’t care if Jill comes back this season and donates a kidney I think I still might hate her…well, maybe not but she would have to donate the kidney. Other than that, I still hate her and I can’t wait for another season for her to show the complete ass she is!

    As for Andy’s show…I feel asleep during the initital show but watched reruns. What is going on with NeNe? Please do not start that, “I think I am all that” vibe again! She constantly seemed to throw digs at Lisa’s show. Kim I give a pass, she’s pregnant. Jeff, hilarious. The wedding was stupid. It was just okay. Next year let’s amp it up a bit! You can’t really compete with the Silver Fox and Kathy!

    • Sha2000 says:

      Happy New Year HD!

      Yes the wedding was stupid! The show was fun but way too long & they should have not let Kim sing, lol.

      PS: I Still don’t hate JZ don’t love her either…may or may not watch RHONY when it returns, getting boring.

      • HD says:

        Hey Sha. You know I LOVE reality TV. I watched the Real World when it first debuted and fell in love. Since then I was a reality TV addict. I still am that way to this day. The other day I found myself watching a show about auctions at a storage site. God help me.

        Jill is the ONLYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY reality TV personality that has worked under my skin. I don’t know what it is about her (maybe I do) that caused me to even do a google search on hating her. I have never felt that strongly in “real life” about anyone on TV. She just worked on my last good nerve! I can’t even say I want to see her redeem herself because she has made me sooooooooooooo mad! For a while I was hoping her and Bethanny could renew their friendship but the more things went on I just found myself hating her so much. Maybe its because I know what being a true friend means and you don’t hold grudges with a REAL friend. She just burns me up!

        Maybe this season she will be better I can guarantee since Bethanny is gone she will come off as the “leader” of the group.

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          hmmm…I don’t know if she will be the leader…she’ll try but she has some competition

        • Sha2000 says:

          Hi HD & OmeMore, hope the new year is treating you both well. HD me too, I love most “reality” tv & I too watched some of auction tv…I think it was “Hollywood auction”, interesting stuff. Lol, you are not alone! I understand why many dislike her, for me I could care less which I guess it worse in away? I just don’t find her that interesting or her story line interesting. I think that what’s more interesting is the stuff that she does off camera like the “Amazongate”, lol. Ironically even after all the time I’ve spent on this blog I really don’t follow the JZ stuff I usually scroll along. JZ, Kim R, Linda DC, just put me to sleep lol. I think the worst HW to watch for me ever was the one who was on OC for one season who fancied herself as a “cougar” (God I hate that term)….it just came to me Quinn. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz…see? She put’s me right out lol.

          • Sha2000 says:

            Oh I forgot to add, that even though she’s more interesting off camera (JZ), I’m so far behind that I don’t even bother to try to read up. Plus she reminds me of some women in NY that I know, so right or wrong maybe I get her personality more???

    • sammyjoesmom says:

      Happy New Year HD! I can’t think of senerio that I wouldn’t hate JZ!! Surely there is something?

  27. klmh says:

    Justanothermary:

    If you would like to talk with someone about stage 4 and your options, I talked with my contact today about you and she said she would talk with you. She is working with 3 stage 4 breast cancers. Maybe she could give you some more information. I gave Lynn my address before, but will give it to her again if you so choose.
    Hope you are finding the answers you seek…

  28. Adgirl says:

    Question for Jill.
    What exactly does your fan base being bullied on the internet have to do with your apartment needing a cleanse?
    Why doesn’t your pyschic pour Lysol into your laptop while mumbling a chant?

    • boston02127 says:

      Jill needs to drink a bottle of Lysol to “cleanse” her nasty self.

    • quincyil says:

      I still want a job cleansing for Bravo reality stars. I can actually destroy germs during the process of removing evil spirits. I am an expert as pet stains too.

      I have been the pretend Medium on the IHJZ board for the last week since Santa laid off the elves. I have predicted that Jill Zarin would write to Lynn after reading it on our board. I have a strong feeling that Jill Zarin is extremely upset with our web mistress and the people on this board. Using my super powers as IHJZ board medium, I predict that Jill Zarin will be unable to forget that our blog mistress and the board made playful jest over her recent appearance. I predict the she will have a reaction to Simon and Alex because she feels slighted by this blog. I predict that what happened here is going to affect the filming of the Real Housewives of New York City this week. As a medium, I read people. I tap into their minds… Know that!

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        so Lynn, and her blog posters have actually become a part of the show?

        sweet

        • quincyil says:

          Only because, Jill Zarin is an emotional being. She taunted Lynn over taking Simon in to her spider’s web. I felt her vibes from Aruba. I use a satellite for my medium up feed. I felt that no normal person would write a review like the one from Alicia Goster on the Jill Zarin/AC article. Only Danielle Staub is that sweetness and light while slamming your head into the floor. This is someone reading our board and knowing about our Medium discussions. This is a regular lurker. Someone…. and I know she is here ….fairly often…. who cannot walk away from this web site. I think she probably comments from time to time and we don’t have a clear address and twitter that confirms her location. We all know this place is addicting. Jill comes here. I, as official/pretend IHJZ board Medium… feels this… Know that!

          • OneMoreInBoston says:

            it’s pernicous

            • quincyil says:

              I just read Lynn’s tweets. There is no a single problem with any fan of Jill’s for ages.

              Jill’s tweet says :

              just heard some of you have been bullied AGAIN by hate blogger.My cyber assistant will start blocking any of their followers. I hope helps

              The only problems were some attacks here by one or more trolls who seemed to be flying around cyberspace in mortal combat. Lynn was sweet to one and sent one into the darkness of cyberspace after it turn rabid.

              “AGAIN” is in capital letters which means Jill was screaming. “by hate blogger,” I’m pretty sure we can all get the vibe from that one.

              Jill Zarin is off the wall engraged by the reaction to her visit to this site. It drudges up the memories of Amazon and the attack on the reviewer there and the reviewer’s pet which in the summer Jill Zarin admitted to at some Hampton book event and then went home sick leaving Bobby to sell the books.

              This medium has a prediction:

              Thar she blows! Jill is going to erupt again. We have had two comments directed at Lynn in a couple of days. This isn’t over. Everything comes in threes. That is the prediction of an Irish pretend board medium.

              • BessiB says:

                Hold the phone!

                Jill admitted at a book signing she pulled that crap on Amazon?! Were there pitch forks and torches involved?

              • OneMoreInBoston says:

                honestly, you are so correct…I also “predicted” that on the last blog…
                Lather.Rinse.Repeat.

              HA!!!

  29. TEB says:

    What was up with Tamara’s Pimp Cup and her comment about “you’re the only one making any money Andy!” She is really starting to get on my nerves.

    • klmh says:

      I find her a bit offensive as well.

      • LynnnSoCal says:

        I can’t watch OC. I don’t care much for any of the cast. Simon Barney is a rude controlling douche puppet and she is just sooo “whiskey tango”. She got on his last nerve too.

    • quincyil says:

      Andy got a promotion at Bravo. Tamara has tried to endorce products, but hasn’t had a lot of success. Her husband, Simon, filed bankruptcy recently. She needs money. I don’t think her boyfriend is rich as he was roomming with someone in the recent past.

      • lillybee says:

        Didn’t she endorse a hair care line? Who would buy what she endorsed? Her hair always looks awful.

    • WaxDiva says:

      Well, when you get down to the basics, Andy is a housweives pimp and he DOES make all the money. The HWs don’t make that much for being on the show; their real money comes from books, CDs, appearances, etc. So, Tamra gave him a pimp cup. Funny!

      • BessiB says:

        And doesn’t Bravo also take a cut from some of their deals, as well?

        • Waxdiva says:

          Yes… but each are different. Treetrunk Joo-dice claims she got a rotten deal, because Bravo agreed to promote the cookbooks (that her mother wrote…hahaha) for 10% of her take (don’t know if she agreed to gross, net or profit), but they cut the scenes of her on RHONJ with the cookbook, so she had to work a lot more for the money. She’s been whining about that for a while…

    I was surprised to see Eddie there with Tamra, I thought there might have been some blow back at him calling Ben (a friend of Jenna’s) a “f—ing f–ggot” a multiple of times during the kerfuffle with Tamra and Jenna.

    He also has a sister who is reportedly homeless with young children-one with a serious illness but refuses to help saying they aren’t his problem but moved his girlfriend and her kids into his house.

  31. StillAWallflower says:

    Thanks for a great recap, Lynn! I can’t stand watching Andy on TV, something about him makes me shudder all over–it’s like chewing tinfoil.

    I’m so looking forward to the return of the OC and NY casts. I swore I wouldn’t watch another season with JZ, but I know I won’t be strong enough to resist. (I said the same thing about Oprah’s network, and lo, three shows are on my DVR to check out. I’m weak. Sigh.)

    (BTW–Another Irish Catholic (by way of PEI, not Ireland directly), Beach Boys lovin’, JZ hater here. LOL.)

  32. AZ Girl says:

    Well Jill just hates when she is caught snooping around on this blog. There will be more visits by her in the future before the next season airs. I can’t wait. This group is just to sharp for her and she keeps coming to the “party”.

    • quincyil says:

      Ha… look above… moments before this I predicted what you are saying. I must be a real pretend board medium… You too. We can found a society of people who can predicti Jill Zarin’s next moves. wow…. We are identical twins.

    • sammyjoesmom says:

      I’m not eskeered of her. LOL I am excited to hear that. Will someone fill me in when she is here? I’m a little slow.

  33. American Idiot says:

    I really can’t stand when Danielle tells her fans, look for my new show soon. Who is she kidding. All last NJ season, she ended every blog with look foward to my daughter’s song being released to itunes. Did that ever happen. Does anyone know. Wasn’t she going to be the next pre teen pop star. I have a hard time believing Danielle will have her own show. I just can’t see it. I think its all talk, but if I’m wrong, please feel free to correct me here.

  34. Kelly_Has_Big_Shoulders says:

    I have been on vacation catching up on things. What do you guys mean Jill Zarin was on here????

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      Lynn got a message from someone asking if Jill made up with Alex and Simon would she ‘stop the hate’ because that is the only reason people hate Jill Zarin.

      The IP was traced back to Aruba, where low and behold Jill happens to be on vacation.

  35. lillybee says:

    I just read that Gretchen and Slade want their own show. They want to be the new Bethenny and Jason.

  36. boston02127 says:

    On the Andy’s New Year’s eve show instead of a wig drop he should of had a pig drop that way it could of covered so many more housewives besides Kim.

  37. Cleveland Girl says:

    WWHL has to be the biggest waste of TV space on a normal basis. Why should the New Year’s Eve episode have been any different? So glad I didn’t even bother recording it. Reading your recap is much easier and timely.

  38. WindyCityWondering says:

    February will definately be interesting and if Jill is claiming she needed Bawby to spend a fortune so she could rest up before the season begins. I am wondering…..how bad will she come off this year?? And it sounds like she already knows she hasn’t redeemed herself with the other housewives or the fans.
    And I still hate Jill Zarin too!

  39. buffywood says:

    Did everyone who is participating in our little Loser group weigh themselves today? I was good eating wise, but no exercise yet as I had a little boy that was sick today attached to my hip.

    Simply having you guys to report to has already helped me. There is left over lobster soaked in butter sitting the fridge that I actually looked at twice today at lunch. Thinking of you all stopped me. I had a Yoplait yogurt, some fresh blackberries, and a special K bar instead. Yay me!

    30 minutes on the treadmill is on the agenda for tonight. I will have 30 minutes as my initial benchmark and then set a goal to get further each time. After 2 weeks up it to 45 and start the process over.

    • Sha2000 says:

      I’ve got a stomach bug so I had no choice but to not eat today, heres to a head start right?

      • vilzvet says:

        Yes I did weigh in, for the first time in months, and then I measured with an old fashioned tape measure bust, waist, hips and butt. Wrote it down and will do so daily. Tomorrow will try the pilates DVD I got for Christmas.

      • Adgirl says:

        I walked 3 hours with my husband. We walk everyday. He has lost about 50lbs by walking and cutting waaay back on food. He looks great!

      • buffywood says:

        Aw, Sha2000 feel better soon. I have been fighting a fever/flu something since Christmas day and it sucks.

        It great to see we have some motivated ladies!

      • BambiBaby22 says:

        Sha2000….. your post reminds me of “the devil wears prada”…
        “I am one stomach flu away from my goal weight”…

    • AZ Girl says:

      Take that lobster and DUMP IT. You look at it lovingly one more time it is 40 minutes on the treadmill for you :)

      • buffywood says:

        Thanks, that is exactly what I did, and the type of advice I love! I gave my daughter one last chance to eat it then I trashed it (after cutting up a little for Captain Kitty). After my time on the treadmill I will be placing my on-line grocery store order. That way the memory of my run will be fresh in my mind when picking stuff to order.

    • I did all my Christmas returns today and had to drive to Short Hills mall. I didn’t get home till 3;30 and GOD, I was starrrvvviing. I didn’t know what to do w/ myself ’cause I was afraid that once I started eating I wouldn’t stop! I had a cup of coffee and a Lean Cuisine…but I cannot leave things to chance like that again.

      Tomorrow, after gym, I must plan my menu and then do my shopping… must be more conscious of my meals.

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      I didn’t weight myself, the scale needs new batteries but I found a great calorie counter on line and have been measuring them.

    • American Idiot says:

      I weighed and measured, and ate pretty well. Going to do a big grocery shop tomorrow. Went to an hour long power class at the gym, and upped my usual weight a bit. Took the dog for 2 walks, but too cold here today to go too far.

    • California35 says:

      Long work day…and it will continue like this all week.

      Well, I did well on the small portion and not having junk food during the day, but the portion wasn’t that small for dinner :-( Noticing I was still hungry after dinner, I had a big glass of milk to make sure I didn’t eat anymore. I fell bad for not doing better, but will try harder tomorrow.

    • LynnnSoCal says:

      Thanks Buffy for motivating so many of us. I’m back to work today and my normal routine. Food log out, lots of seltzer and veggies, now I’ve got to exercise! That’s my downfall. I’m going to walk 30 min everyday to start, in additon to my daily stretching. I firmly believe we are going to have some great results, because we are doing this as a team. Group support! Lynn has my permission to give you and or Quincy my email if needed. I’m so glad you were all here over the holidays. My very toxic mother gave me the gift of her ferocious malice yet again. It helped me coming here to laugh and escape. Much aloha to you all!

        Well….. to the TV wives who are snooping……Jill you’re too orange. Lay off the fake tan and unreal orange hair dye. Dina, stop tweeting as if you’re grandma wrinkles…it’s just sick & you tweet gross things so I imagine that’s really how your mind really works. Oh and stop pretending you have a husband.

        Pope Boston. Sounds good! Of course you know you are doomed to perdition for that…

    • quincyil says:

      I saw the article below this that discussed the housewives and the Hiesenberg Principle. I love physics, I remember many of our board members commenting on how the house wife reality changes over time. When they first come onto the show they are fairly normal people but by season two, their hair and makeup changes, they lose weight, and they are in designer clothes for breakfast. Atlanta gave up on featuring the women as housewives so Kim is on stage singing for thousands and Nene is interviewing celebrities for a TV station. Their lives have been significantly affected by the reality show. I see that the Heisenberg Principle can be applied to reality television. That was a clever observation. Good job.

  44. TrueLifeDiva says:

    Okay I weighed myself this morning, but prior to having a BM and on my period. Next weeks numbers should be more accurate. Just wanted a baseline.
    Ate instant grits (100 cals) with 1 1/2 scrambled eggs (97 cals) and tea (184 cals sugar) for breakfast.
    Totally blew lunch but for a reason. In July had my first mammogram. Results came back “incomplete” and recommended I have more in depth mammogram plus a sonogram. Problem being I don’t have health inurance. So I wrote to several organizations and applied for grants to pay for the testing. I encountered several stupid and rude people during my quest for funding including an intern who called me monthly to tell me I ” could just pay cash” and get it over with. A few weeks ago I found out I was elligible for a Cancer Detection Program that all parties involved knew about but never bothered to tell me. This program paid for my retest. I went in today to have my mammogram and ultrasound done. Both techs told me NOTHING showed on their screens. So for all intents and purposes, I am breast cancer free! I had a large vanilla shake for lunch to celebrate. Don’t worry, I’m fitting it into my calorie count for the day :-).
    Tonight is Meatless Monday. Pinto beans and brown rice are tonight’s menu. Tomorrow night is Turkey Taco Tuesday ;-).

    • buffywood says:

      Good for you!!! I hope you shake was extra thick.

      I know in our area at least two of our health insurance companies have a mobile mammogram machine and they travel around giving fee mammograms. If someone needs one try Googling Free Mammograms or try yahoo local, they maintain a list of Susan G Komen affiliates offering free mammograms.

      • boston02127 says:

        @TrueLifeDiva—I’m glad everything turned out ok for you. ♥

        • TLD. I am very impressed with how approached all of this.
          You were so practical and smart to look for a logical way to get what you needed done. You did what you needed to do and you didn’t panic and you got it done. I am really proud of you and for you. Thank-God that everything is okay. I will not eat the rest of the day and you can have my extra calories. God bless you.xo

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      OMG! Halleluiah!

      THAT is great news! I Will clap for that. Please- I would be imbibing in much more than a vanilla milkshake.

      You have got to get some health insurance though. Nothing through work?

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Good news deserves a guilt free treat!

      TLD_ How great to know everything is going good for you! Bravo!

    • Blue Sky says:

      That’s great news TLD! I’m thinking following a healthy diet & exercising helps prevent cancer…sure hope so. My son got a vanilla milkshake & fries this evening. I did not have any…but it was a little tough! He cracks me up while driving (he’s turning 17 Feb. 12) by saying, “Yo Mom, take the wheel.” Never do, keep telling him how dangerous that is. He’s growing up so fast. We adopted our son back in 1994, from India. He is a typical teenager, maybe that’s why my hair is turning white lol.

    Plantar Fasciitis:

    A friend of mine who is receiving treatment for breast cancer developed P.F. from the monthly injections. Its one of the side effects. She had 3 treatments on a Linear Accelerator and her fasciitis is all but gone, and has been for several months. She is still receiving the medication that caused it too.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      Huh. I would have never expected that would be a side effect. Maybe PF has something to do with your immune system too? But how can that be? Very odd.

      • klmh says:

        Im trying to remember the name of the monthly injection and think it starts with a t or an f. I will ask her though…
        She told me it is a known side effect and it affects her in a different area of the foot than my P.F. Believe it or not, mine went away with Celebrex. Used it about 2 weeks and bam, I was playing tennis and noticed it wasn’t there anymore. Mine was not as severe as hers though, Im sure.

        • buffywood says:

          I think my sister-in-law gets that injection as part of her cancer treatment if it is the one to boost her bone marrow production. Being stage 4 at 37 they are treating her very aggressively. The biggest side effect she has is it causes her over all bone pain. Her doctor said to take Claritin and amazingly it helps a ton. How that works I have no idea but it does.

          • Adgirl says:

            Is it Claritin or Claritin D? D has the formula with the pseudrephmine (sp?) that is used to cook speed. LOL. I prefer D because it works better on me.

          • klmh says:

            Isn’t that interesting!
            Hope it helps her Buffywood. So young…

          • klmh says:

            OK. The name of the drug that causes the side effect of PF is Aromasin. It is a aromatase inhibitor.

        • American Idiot says:

          Hey, k, do you need a prescription for the Celebrex?

          • klmh says:

            Yes. They used to pass it out pretty liberally and then a few years ago, it was tied to another drug that had side effects, I think maybe valvular. The other med was taken off the market, but Celebrex is still a great drug.

            • justanothermary says:

              I had been taking Claritin D for help with the side effects of the injections. It did help.

    Beverly in New Jersey:

    Do you carry water with you when you’re out? Also, I bought a carbonator from Soda Stream that takes your tap water and turns it into bubbly (carbon gas) water. Bethany drinks it as well, and she was the one that gave me the idea a year ago, or so. It fills you up much more than water. Watch it though. I think a lot of carbonated water can lead to spasms in the bladder. If you want to put flavoring into it, they make that as well. But I like the taste of water.

    • Sha2000 says:

      klmh , I remember as a kid my parents had one. Where do you get the extra chargers (is that the right name?), you know the carbonated fizzies? And is it really cheaper that the flavored carbonated water?> I bought some at Target tonight for only .69

      • klmh says:

        Sha2000, this is the site:

        http://www.sodastreamusa.com/store.aspx

        You need to buy a few bottles, the little device you put the canisters (carbon gas) in, and the canisters. I buy the large canisters and each lasts about 2-3 months, I guess. I have a filter for water from my sink, so I just refrigerate it and when its cold, just put it in the device and buzz away. It is so amazing though. The taste is water. No sodium, and it takes a few days to get used to the taste, but it is fabulous. I miss it horribly when we are away. End up buying Pellegrino or Perrier and that gets expensive, especially since I drink about 50 to 64 oz/day. I guess it just depends on how much water you drink. Also, there are a lot of stores in larger towns that carry the canisters, so that will save you a lot on shipping.

        • Bed Bath and Beyond carries the canisters.

          But they still don’t carry Jills Bedding line

          • Bed bath and beyond actually carries an entire starter “kit” for the Soda Stream. has bottles, canister and flavorings. you buy replacement canisters there as well(bring in old can and they give you good discount on new one)

            • klmh says:

              I went 50 miles to our Williams Sonoma store to be told they have the small carbon canisters only. I had to order it online and the shipping can be pricey.
              I am a tree hugger and it just makes sense use this rather than add more plastic bottles to the land fills, and to save on the petroleum needed to make them, and on and on… Also saves my back from carrying all those bottles into the house.

        • Sha2000 says:

          Thanks!

    • klmh, I had nothing with me today and was out much longer than I thought I would be. I usually carry a “fullbar” or granola bar when I know I’m going to be that long..and always have water. just not today!
      Ironically, I bought 3 of those soda-stream thingies for Christmas! just none for me! all gifts, haha.
      I like the idea of the carbonated water when hungry, thanks for the idea. i keep cases of seltzer in house and will use to stave off hunger-thanks!

      • klmh says:

When I climbed the tower there was a teacher in front of me who did a little fart every step he took.

          We have tons of christmas cactus in bloom right now in three or four colors & purple shamrocks with lilac flowers blooming~inside. We have 3-6ft long plant lights so we have them all winter as well.

    As the pretend Board Medium and now pretend social secretary, I feel we should issue an invitation to Jill Zarin today. We should ask her to join our health group. She seems to be concerned about the number of dessert that her fans in Aruba forced her to eat. She probably goes to exercise classes. I know she had pilates in the summer and was feeling great about it. We have Irish jig dance teachers, gymnastic coaches, bikers, runners, and walkers on the board. Jill is reaching out to twitterdom and seems to be asking for help. BTW, I don’t think we will be using the chapter on diet from Jill’s book for our group.

        I just love how she says “Order my new book” whereas there are three authors and her sister did most of the work.

    Yay!!! Did anyone else just read the Radar online article about Teresa and Joe?? It’s starting to hit the fan!!!! Ha!!

    • buffywood says:

      Love it! Plus it seems that Joe is telling everyone that will listen (and hoopefully people are), that Teresa lied on the stand regarding her not signing many of the closing documents and is providing names to prove it. He said she was personally at one of the property closings, gave the notary’s name, and said she paid him with her American Express card. He is out to get them and I love it.

    • vilzvet says:

      Yes, it’s in the link Boston posted above about Camille. Great news! Looks like he has to pay exactly half of the amount demanded, I guess because they were partners?? Still looks like a victory to me for the other guy.

    • buffywood says:

      Here is the link to the article

      And here is his comments about the beach house closing. Fred was infact the notary on the closing of the beach house as well as at least one other mortgage that I saw.

      When Teresa Giudice took the stand last week with regards to a dispute with Joe Mastropole over a fraudulent loan discharge paper she stated she did not know anything “about it”. And furthermore stated that she did not sign her own bankruptcy petition either. Under cross examination she was asked about her beach house and she stated ” is that in my name”.

      Well according to Joe Mastropole Teresa was at every closing he told ibuysss.com Tabloid ”she knew every mortgage and attended every closing on all props in her name and was paid by way of
      her American express card who is she kidding” and he named Fred Roughgarden as the closing attorney.

    I am related to Robert E Lee’s brother James Lee. The Lee’s were farmers in Va.

      Lt. Robert E Lee, later General, surveyed the Mississippi just north of Quincy, IL. There are markers where he took some measurements for the US Government of the time. He was here in Il for a long time. He was a leaders in the US Army long before he followed his home state in the Civil War. Our Lincoln Presidential Library in Springfield, IL, is magnificient. I recommend this area for vacations with children. There is Hannibal, Mo., with Mark Twain too. It’s not expensive either.

      • StillAWallflower says:

        The Lincoln Presidential Library has long been on my list of places I’d love to visit. I don’t do much traveling, though, so I doubt I’ll ever get there. :-(

    Yesterday the judge for Jo’s fraud case w/his x partner, awarded the partner $250 000+ to b paid regardless of the bankruptcy filing. I wonder if this means the X partner can put a lean on the Guidice
    Mc mansion ?

    • buffywood says:

      Don’t you love it? I really want to see T-bitch nailed for perjury. In my mind only jail time is a fitting punishment for these two scums. Clearly fines are meaningless at this point.

    • BessiB says:

      I wonder if this means that the Trustee is also going to successfully going to quash the entire bankruptcy case.

  65. WSL says:

    Perjury is a serious crime.
    I wonder if she will sneak hair do dads & leopard pillows in jail ? When the parents come out of the basement,where will they house the munshkins while
    M &M Ape serve time ?
    I bet Ms Gorilla will not remember signing for them at the hospital. Good thing Godmother Dina has plenty of time on her hands & is rich. I bet Dina could turn the hair inventory
    (Teresa claims doesn’t exist)
    into cat outfits. Better yet sell it to Lisa for Giggy.

    • Waxdiva says:

      Well, finally some action on the Joo-dice’s bankruptcy. Ka-dooz (as Ramona would say) to the Judge in the case… he saw right through Juicy and hopefully he will see right through Tree’s total BS.

      I posted info taken from the bankruptcy docs, in which Tree admits to her signature on docs (it’s toward the end, under Testa Testimony): http://stoopidhousewives.wordpress.com/

      I wouldn’t be surprised if they took off to their ‘ancestral’ Itlee home!
