I Hate Jill Zarin Weekend Housewives Update

I Hate Jill Zarin    Real Housewives of Orange County Preview

Before we get into Orange County, we still have some unfinished New York business.

Sonja Morgan the villain of Episode 2, Season 4 has been playing defense all weekend, she has been deleting negative posts on her Facebook wall and responding to negative Tweets (since she can’t delete those).  There is still more contradictions coming our way.  First, here is a bit from her BravoTV.com blog:

Marriage Equality of NY did not cancel Simon after booking him to speak. I would never muscle someone out, and push my way in. Not my style. He was NOT speaking when MENY first asked me to speak in the spring, and they made that clear to me when I asked who I would be slated to speak with and who my company was. They told me that I would be the only one from our show.

Sonja Tweets:  

  • MENY would have let Simon speak if they wanted him to speak. Its their event. Not a RHONY event
  • I don’t judge peeps by clips! Ie SILEX first season?
  • Told MENY after 1/2 season wasn’t sure I was signing for next full season. If that was why they were asking. Said no.
  •  wish u had seen my graciousness hosting prdcrs, cameramen, costars, designer who lent dresses 3hrs b4 the nervous 5 mins b4 leavin.
  • thnx for allowing me to clarify. Had done 1/2 season and told MENY I may not do another. They weren’t expecting me to tape
  • SILEX has tough first season. I believed in the best in them. Not what was portrayed
  • I did not ask to be Grand Marshall. MENY pulled Simon NOT I. Sorry I was so proud w my FRIENDS at home? After 3 hrs of hosting. ( ED: see the contradiction from her blog? )
  •  Thnx for hanging in there. Early in the season. Silex had a tough first season. I see the best in peeps

Sonja even yells at some…

  •  IF MENY WANTED SIMON TO SPK HE WOULD HAVE. LIKE ALOT OF PEOPLE WHO WANTED TO. NY IS A BIG TOWN

I think my favorite has to be where Sonja tells us that if MENY was asking her to speak at the Marriage Equality March simply because she was a Real Housewife, she would have said, “NO!”.  Why no?  Isn’t this a good enough cause for you Sonja?  Does it matter why they asked you to participate?  If they were asking to get more publicity for the cause by having it filmed for the show, isn’t that even more reason to get involved?  Funny, in the end she DID do it on the show and it was filmed, so apparently that “no” turned into a “yes” anyway (as long as she was Grand Marshall and the only RHONY cast member to speak).    Sonja T. Morgan is a walking contradiction.

Based on all of Sonja’s tweets, we can see a few things, first she is trying to compare her bad behavior with the way that Alex and Simon were portrayed during Season One.  She is basically saying, you all hated Silex during Season one but now you love them, so do the same for me.  The difference is Alex and Simon didn’t act the way Sonja did in this episode.  Based on the previews Sonja doesn’t redeem herself anytime soon.  She didn’t own her behavior or apologize for anything on WWHL or in her blog.

Sonja is also going on about what a great hostess she was at her home before the march, she mentions cameramen and producers along with her cast mates.  That’s great Sonja, you gave them all coffee and donuts before you left for the march, what’s your point?  This excuses your bad behavior at the event?

So what was the big deal?  Why didn’t Sonja want to allow any of the others to speak?  Was it just Alex and Simon or would she have acted the same way if Kelly had originally been scheduled to speak?  What about Jill or Luann?

Sonja contradicts herself many times first saying that they asked her to speak well before she signed on to Season Four of Real Housewives, then she says that she specifically told them if they only wanted her because of her Housewives connection she wouldn’t do it.

Sort of says it all...

None of this will ever make sense to me, she stood next to and marched with five other Real Housewives of New York yet she demanded to be the only one allowed to speak.  She wasn’t trying to distance herself from them, so she had to be trying to portray that she was the “Head Housewife in Charge” or more important than any of the others, the star of the show maybe?

That’s great that Alex forgives her, but I’m a bit confused.  If I were Alex I would have required at the very least an apology.  Sonja isn’t apologizing, she is defending herself and her actions.  Sonja is making excuses and we’re basically hearing, Alex has forgiven me so viewers should too.

But Alex has forgiven a lot of things that many people wouldn’t have forgiven.  All the things that Ramona and Bethenny said about Silex in the first two seasons seem to have been forgiven and forgotten.  Now Sonja’s horrible treatment of Alex has also been forgiven and forgotten.  I don’t know of any housewife who has had to suck it up more than Alex has.  She has a forgiving nature apparently.

For the first time Sonja finally seemed to admit to some wrongdoing, she tweeted this just moments ago:

SonjatMorgan   I shouldn’t have mentioned Simon. Wrong time. Said water of ducks back. Kept goin. Ooops

Sonja sent this to me as well:

SonjatMorgan  TO:  @LynnNChicago I have always been self deprecating and I don’t judge others. I like everyone to be free to be.

It’s about time Ms. Morgan!  I don’t think this is about judging people, we’re going to comment on Housewives behavior, thats what we do.  This is about the shocking change in Sonja Morgan this season.

On Saturday after watching Sonja Morgan defend herself over and over on Twitter, Alex McCord seemed to want to help her get off the hook a bit and posted a few Tweets:

mccordalex Alex McCord

I know @SonjatMorgan is having a rough wknd. This was taken last wk, so something must’ve happened in the last 6 mo ;-)yfrog.com/h3vbnpyj

It’s a testament to whether a friendship is real if you can move past things – watch what happens btw @SonjaTMorgan & me.

This is the photo that Alex Tweeted:

Friends again?

Sonja isn’t finished yet, don’t forget she gives Cindy a lesson on the “Pecking order” coming up on the show, a viewer Tweeted this to Sonja:

Saw this weeks ep of #RHNY, loved @SonjatMorgan commenting “Social Pecking Order”, guess she forgot waitressing before marrying a Morgan ha!

Sonja responds:

This means Cindy treating Ramona fairly or being tolerant of her cuz Ramona introduced her to the grp.

Sonja continues to tweet that she should not have brought up Simon to Alex at her party, that seems to be the only thing she is taking responsibility for at this point.  Some of Sonja’s Tweets:

We never stopped being frds. I shouldn’t have brought up Simon at the art party. Should have stopped at duck off a waters back

Apologized to Simon. Forget my own name. That was 7 mths ago. Just met Alex st john 

So what Sonja seems to be saying is that Alex and Simon have forgiven her, we should too.

Moving on…

I want to thank Jill Zarin for stopping by again, she is “supporting” (read: controlling) a new blog.  The new blog debuted just before the original airing of The Real Housewives of New York was scheduled to air back in February.  Jill’s blog….er the fan’s blog immediately out of the gate was interviewing Housewives and even Jill’s mommy.  Jill says she will support blogs if she thinks they will be fair and impartial.  How would she know that this blogger would be fair and impartial before she wrote a word?  Easy!  It is a friend or relative of Jill’s, there is no doubt about it.  Jill had to make sure she not only supports this blog of hers but is sure to slam the rest of us who don’t kiss her ass…  Jill is so transparent, but I love that she’s getting into blogging!  Welcome Jill:

Jillzarin Jill Zarin 

This blog has the most exclusive Housewives interviews. Bravo must like them!http://hubpages.com/profile/Lisa+New+England Do you get DVD?

Notice Jill said “BRAVO” must like them, actually Jill Zarin, we know it is YOUR blog under your control.  Bravo couldn’t care less about your little side projects.

Note to Jill Zarin,  You continue to underestimate viewers, you’re not smarter than we are and your transparent support of this ONE blogger shows that this is your blog under your control.   I don’t expect, nor do I want your support, because I’m a legitimate blogger who is a fan of the show and I’m not going to lie about what is happening on the show.   It is really sad that you had to pay for a blog that won’t call you out on your horrible behavior Mrs. Zarin!  How do you keep all of your lies straight?  I can only imaging you must keep notes with your poor memory and all.  Have a nice day!  LynnNChicago~

Jill apparently plans on continuing with her ridiculous U-Stream sessions, however she’s now announced that she won’t be recording and posting them, if you miss the live feed, too darn bad!  There are currently three old ones posted on her site but for those teenage Australian fans who are sleeping while she’s yacking, or working and don’t want to get fired for watching Jill ramble on for 90 minutes, they’re out of luck!  Luckily she doesn’t have enough fans to really worry about it much.

The Bravotv.com blogs are up and comments are flooding in but of course as always, Bravo is picking and choosing which to post, Sonja’s are mostly negative and surprise, Jill’s are mostly positive, I love that this one slipped through:

Submitted by WindyCityWondering on April 15, 2011.

You are fabulous – and for a diversity of comments one only has to check any other blog or internet article to see what is really being said about you.

Opening with the “you are fabulous” was a genius move!  Our very own WindyCityWondering, I’m so proud of you!

Remember the hat that Jill purchased at the Celebrity Apprentice Art Auction from NeNe Leakes?  The auction that raised $1 million dollars for NeNe’s women’s team.  Jill’s measly $500 contribution bought her the hideous hat that NeNe made, now Jill is auctioning it off to benefit…wait for it…”The Zarin Family Trust”.  This is the trust fund for her daughter, right?  hahaha

I see Jill has valued the hat that she paid $500 for at $750, apparently it has appreciated $250 since it appeared on television.  Get your bids in, I know you are all dying to get your hands on this hat!  The same site will allow you to bid on a chance to be in the audience at Watch What Happens Live to watch Andy Cohen slam back Makers Mark until he’s falling off his chair…

A Viewer to Jill Zarin:  why so mean this season. Can’t hardly watch anymore!

Jillzarin Jill Zarin responded:   Huh? If u think this was rough turn off tv!!

Way to go Jill, way to keep fans coming back for more.  I wonder if Andy Cohen knows one of his cast members are telling people to turn off the TV.  This woman is a genius.

I think a lot of people feel the way this viewer does, the show is becoming dark and more like New Jersey than New York.  Try to remember what you liked about The Real Housewives of New York during season one, it has certainly changed.

Just when I gave Luann credit for giving up on selling that atrocity of a book she wrote, she’s at it again:

http://blog.jewelbilee.com/2011/04/countess-luann-de-lesseps-in-plymouth.html

Where has Kelly been so far?  After two episodes we’ve seen her stare dreamily while lying on Jill Zarin’s bed, not understand the “tin can” airplane reference, calling a Marriage Equality March “campy” and yelling, “You’re embarrassing us” several times so loud that she drew more attention to the group than any of the arguing did.  Only two episodes in I’m sure we haven’t seen the best of Bensimon yet.  We know she is going to make fun of the fine immigrants of this country by mocking them, “no spekeda English” and I know you are looking forward, as I am to the sand angels she’s going to make for us.

The Real Housewives Of New Jersey


Bravo has released a second preview video for The Real Housewives of New Jersey, it doesn’t seem to be anything we haven’t already seen, you can view it here:

The signature head tilt

Teresa_Giudice tweeted:

Guess what I got in the mail today??? SO EXCITED!!!!http://tinyurl.com/5v2utvs 

I know what you’re thinking… a subpoena, but alas, she received a copy of her new book in the mail.

Next week we’ll do a full preview including introductions to the two new relatives of Teresa’s, her cousin Kathy and her sister-in-law Melissa are joining her on the show.  Teresa tried so hard to prevent that from happening, even threatening to leave the show if these two women joined the cast, clearly she failed miserably.  Teresa doesn’t have as much star power as she likes to believe.

RHONJ: Danielle Staub is reportedly being sued for violating her contract. The owner of Swan Media Group is suing…http://fb.me/DHQl1Qlf

The Real Housewives of Orange County

Tonight Bravo airs Episode seven of The Real Housewives of Orange County.  Has it been that many?  A half dozen forgettable episodes where nothing happened whatsoever.  Tamra’s trip to Spain was sickeningly dull, Gretchen’s folks vow renewal was a bit strange as there were no guests, Vicki broke about a dozen laws by spanking her employee on camera.  Alexis and Peggy argued over who has better kids.   If you haven’t watched the show I just saved you six hours of your lives right here.

Tonight Alexis Bellino teaches us the difference between Mortgage foreclosure and Loan modification but the good news is Tamra is excited that she may be able to short sale her house.  Tamra also notes that Alexis’ decorating style is expensive then adds that it isn’t her style.  We know Tamra, we know!

Bravo’s other preview shows Gretchen complaining that her dogs are fat when they return from her ex-husband Chris’s house.  Apparently they share custody of the dogs.   Slade has apparently been spending some time at Chris’s house as well because Gretchen thinks Slade is fat too.  *Yawn*

Gretchen has more legal trouble coming her way, apparently her partner in her make up line is suing her, read more about it here:

http://stoopidhousewives.com/2011/04/17/wretched-and-slimey-scammers/

Orange County’s other new housewife, Fernanda seems to have been given the “Jen Gilbert” treatment and booted off before the season even got underway.  She pops up here and there but hasn’t been awarded the coveted orange at this point.

Step it up OC, we’re bored!

A special editorial by Quincy


“I Love Jill Zarin” blog on the prairie by Quincy

I can’t believe I am writing this.  Can it be that someone in the cast of “The Real Housewives of New York City” is more manipulative and controlling that our own Jill Zarin?  Sonja Tremont (my husband is the descendant of JP Morgan) Morgan was asked to be on “The Real Housewives of New York City” during the time it was being created.   Sonja tells us in interviews that she was in a divorce and did not know what might happen when you are on a reality show.  She knew Ramona and the Countess Luann and watched them become famous and make money so after season two, Sonja signed on for the ride of her life.

In Season Three, Sonja was introduced and many of us were impressed by her good sense and humor. She took a slam from Jill Zarin like water off a duck’s back. She was rational throughout Kelly Kelloren Bensimon’s breakthrough on Scary Island. She was a beacon of light in the Third Season hate fest called, “Season Three Reunion.” 

Sonja had her own problems in the summer before filming Season Four.  She had a DUI, was still dealing with her divorce, and she had unpaid bills to the tune of 19 million dollars.  She had a plan.  The lawyers would create the bankruptcy documents and she would be in Europe when the news came out.  She would also use Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of NYC” to become famous, fabulous and return to the title that Sonja once had: “the straw that stirs the drink.”

Sonja can read the tea leaves.  She saw that our Jill Zarin was wallowing in the mud during and after Season Three.  She knew that Bethenny was going to be out of the picture.  She felt that of the remaining housewives, she was the most fabulous and that she would soon be the center of a group of fabulous friends.  Luann and Ramona were longtime friends and supporters.  They only stepping stone would be a couple called Silex from Brooklyn.  Surely, they were no competition for “The It Girl” of the 90s. Silex would just have to step aside for Sonja.

Sonja had talked to the Marriage Equality people in the spring.  She told them she would participate, but as Sonja Morgan, not as a new member of RHNYC.  They agreed.  Later in July, Alex and Simon signed on and actually helped the committees with march preparations and supported the march with all of their media power. Someone put Alex’s name on the website as a speaker and in time, Silex decided that Simon would give that speech as he has some interesting points about visas, green cards and citizenship rights that were being denied to gay couples because of the laws in New York State.

Silex had a great idea.  They would use wedding dresses on “The Real Housewives of New York City” as a marketing tool to represent the marriage issue.  Alex arranged for a salon to host the housewives and to film them getting into their gowns.  When informed, Sonja listened and calculated.  She could manipulate the filming and gain control of the situation using “the Sonja pill.” In a conversation with the event organizers the night before the event, the Title of Grand Marshall was bestowed on the head of Sonja Morgan.  However, it was very important that she not be one of a group of fabulous people, the RHNYC.  It was important to be Sonja Tremont (I am the wife of a descendent of JPMorgan) Morgan.  The event organizer knew he was dealing with a powerful entity and he folded. 

The next day, Sonja is not happy that Alex is thanking Sonja Tremont (my husband is a descendent of JP Morgan) Morgan for being a part of an event honoring Sonja.  Sonja  tries to control the conversation about the event reminding everyone that she is the Grand Marshall numerous times and making the day about Sonja Tremont (my husband is a descendent of JPMorgan) Morgan.

When the Real Housewives arrive at the event, Simon greets Alex with the news that they had been hijacked by Sonja.  They explain, request, cajole and beg Sonja for permission to allow Simon to speak at the event.   Sonja is silent, this is her moment and as she tells us in an interview Silex should swallow the (Sonja) pill.

Sonja has slayed Silex and doesn’t care about the true meaning of the event.  Has she out “Zarined” Jill Zarin?  Jill manipulates for her own benefit all of the time. Sonja manipulated and with a royal crown on her head ignored her peasants/dear friends who had petitioned her for kindness.

Later, at Sonja’s painting party, she invites her friend Alex.  She graces Alex with a notation that they bonded on Scary Island, then whips out her sword and beheads Simon.   No wonder Alex’s lower jaw dropped inches.  Now, Sonja Tremont (my husband is a descendant of JP Morgan) Morgan invites Alex to have a wonderful time at her party in her home to unveil her portrait.   The peasant/dear friend / Alex revolts and is exiled from the palace.

Jill Zarin had fought her wars and successfully exiled Bethenny and Alex, but has it ever been done with such finesse?   Sonja Tremont (my husband is a descendent of JP Morgan) Morgan has out done Jill Zarin!  Our Jill Zarin is down and Sonja is trying to replace her as the center of the circle of fabulous people.  

I have grown to love Jill Zarin.  I watch her tweets and enjoy her articles.  I love it when she checks this website and responds to us on twitter giving hits to bloggers that fight with Lynn on twitter.  I love it when she gets upset over hate bloggers.  I love Jill Zarin’s constant complaining and her nasty comments.  I love hating Jill Zarin.

On New Year’s Eve, Jill Zarin wrote to Lynn asking her what would happen if Jill Zarin made peace with Simon van Kempen.  Lynn, what will happen if Jill becomes the underdog in RHNYC?  We champion the underdogs here.  Will I have to continue to prop up Jill Zarin in “I Love Jill Zarin” blogs?  Rotfl.

Stay tuned as Sonja manipulates Alex into thinking that everything is copacetic while she is manipulating the cast of RHNYC and trying to take over the show.  This should be fun.  I hope she continues tweeting her heart out sharing with Simon and Lynn. 

Many thanks to Sonja Tremont (my husband is a descendant of JP Morgan) Morgan for making me laugh at New York Socialites.

Nice work Quincy!  Great blog!  Lynn~

My message to Sonja Morgan:

Dear Sonja,

Based on the previews for next week’s show things don’t improve for you as it seems that you continue to badger Alex, fans have already decided overwhelmingly that you were wrong.  You’ve lost every poll and viewers are disappointed in your behavior.

You’ve had 6-months to decide how you were going to handle this once the show aired and you made a big mistake, I think you see that now.   You posted a blog and appeared on Watch What Happens Live defending yourself yet contradicting yourself at the same time, you’ve done everything except what you should have done, apologize.

Sonja, you have made a few small attempts to admit that you were wrong on Twitter today but no where near what is necessary to fix this.  You can fix it!  Apologize to Alex for treating her the way that you did in your house.  Apologize to Simon for the disrespectful way you treated him at the Marriage Equality March as well as how you referred to him at your party.  Finally, admit and acknowledge that you’ve disappointed fans and apologize for your behavior.  You can pull this off.

As someone who has spent time in New York Society you have got to know that your behavior was unacceptable.  We get that it happened 6-months ago and that you and Alex have made friends again.  That’s great but viewers are seeing this for the first time and based on what we’ve seen with your recent blog and appearance on WWHL you don’t own your bad behavior.  So we see it as just another Housewife who has abused Alex McCord and she has forgiven them without explanation or apology.  You brought up season one and we watched as Alex was slammed by Ramona, Luann, Jill and Bethenny.  I personally thought it was awful to watch and what you’ve done is awful to watch as well so that was a bad comparison for you to point to.

I hope that you’ll take this in the spirit of which it is intended because I really was a fan, Sonja, I hope that you can somehow redeem yourself.  Fuckin’ apologize already!  (excuse my French)

Sincerely,

LynnNChicago~

Real Housewives of DC


Although The Real Housewives of DC have been cancelled, the cast remains entertaining, Rich Amons tweeted this after Jill Zarin’s poll recount demand:

RichAmons   U go GF!! I should have protested that bogus @ebongeka DC Fav Husband win ;) ‘Housewife’ pulls an Al Gore – NYPOST.comnyp.st/ex8nMo

Apparently Cindy Barshop’s business has hit Rich’s funnybone as well:

RichAmons  I trust he will get Manscaped And JunkJazzled by @CindyBarshop b4 the shoot!

RichAmons:  Phones are BeDazzled, Women ar VAJazzled and men are JunkJazzled, it all makes sense when u think about it ;)

Cat Ommanney has remained very active on the social networks and will appear on Watch What Happens Live for the Royal Wedding episode, she tweeted to Andy:

@CatOmmanney TO ‎@BravoAndy – You OK with a union jack bikini for @WWHL on 28th? #justasking…

Cat’s book seems to be selling well, she’s getting a lot of positive feedback and great reviews on Amazon.com

An interview with Lynda of DC:

Would you like to see this man naked?

Rumor has it Salahi is in talks with Playgirl, who would like to bet Playgirl goes bankrupt if this happens.

Real Housewives of Las Vegas?  It could happen…

http://stoopidhousewives.com/2011/04/16/real-housewives-of-las-vegas-auditions-today/

Congratulations to Bethenny Frankel, her book “A Place Of Yes” is on the New York Times Bestseller List and she is currently on a much needed 2-week vacation.  (any Tweets and Facebook posts you see while Bethenny is away are being posted by her assistant, Julie)

Come on back and chat about the show during The Real Housewives of Orange County tonight!  It’s fun!

Correction:  In a previous blog I noted that Sonja Morgan stated Luann deLesseps wedding gown is in a museum.  It was actually Kelly’s gown that Sonja said was in a museum.  Sorry for the error.

    Jill Zarin owes Sonya a muffin basket for taking some negative heat. However, I still hate JZ.

    • quincyil says:

      LOL, Jill Zarin must be in the Happy Place that she used for the title of her blog on bravotv.com. Finally, someone else is taking the heat.

  2. Adgirl says:

    Help me invent new intro’s for the RH.

    Sonja: “The Stick that Stirs the Shit”.

    If DC continued Tareq Salahi could be “The White A$$ Flasher”.

    I really want a new one for LuAnn ut I can’t even remember the one she has now.

  3. jeanne says:

    Does anyone know what museum Kelly’s dress is in? Can anyone find out? Does anyone care enough to do the research?

    • lovemamaearth says:

      The crazy clown museum maybe.

    • quincyil says:

      We have been researching. The designer is in Paris and other celebrities fly there for fittings. The dress designer is located in Paris and his name is Azzedine Alaia. (Shoes were created for her by Massaro.) This designer has several of his fashions in a museum in Paris called Mode Museum of Textiles near Paris, France. We don’t have confirmation that her dress is in that museum, but Lynn is sending Harvey and me to Paris to check things out. Lynn says, “The tickets are in the mail,” So we should have the answer as soon as we get back. We told Lynn that we have to look in a lot of museums to be sure before we check Mode so we will be gone for at least one week trying to get information for the members of Lynn’s board.

      There is nothing that Harvey and I won’t do for all of you.

      Q

      Kelly Bensimon | Celebrity | Wonderwall – 9:50amkellybensimon: @Brooklit Azzedine Alaia designed my wedding dress and Massaro

      • TLM says:

        I love Azzedine Alaia. In the 80s there were many ads for him in Vogue. He did very body-conscious knitwear. That must have been accidental good taste on Kelly’s part, but I would guess that if it’s really there, it’s because Gilles has a relationship with Alaia and the museum, and it has nothing to do with Kelly.

      • LynnNChicago says:

        Oh and I forgot, please hold your breath until those airline tickets arrive :)

    Luann’s sbould be” I never mind being privileged while still calling myself Countess Cougar and inviting that Court Dude over every weekend to entertain Jaques”

    • TLM says:

      How many people think the Countess was in a Coerte/Jacques menage a weirdos out in the Hamptons? I would bet she has outfits that would make Alex’s dominatrix getup look like a church outfit.

  5. HD says:

    Lynn, when Sonia tweeted you what did you tweet to her to make her respond to you? Also, didn’t you interview Sonia or am I losing it? How do you feel about interviewing her and calling her on the carpet. Do you think she is upset about that?

    • LynnNChicago says:

      Hi HD, I’ll try to get all those tweets together and post them, I remember joking with her about the People magazine poll and asking if she was going to pull a Jill and ask for a recount. I said a few other things too not nearly as nice, I’ll get them for you.

      Yes, did interview her and she was quite lovely. She couldn’t talk too much about what went on during filming and I understood that. I felt like I had to speak my mind about what she had done regardless of the interview. She is upset, there is no doubt about it from her tweets but I am not sure it has anything to do with me. She may have thought that I’d go easy on her because she gave me an interview or maybe that is why she responded to my tweets, she certainly had plenty of them to respond to, there had to be hundreds of Tweets to her that she could have answered but she chose mine and a few others to answer.

      • HD says:

        Yeah I thought she might think that you were supposed to go easy on her but part of blogging I guess is keeping it real.

        You don’t have to get the tweets I was just wondering why she said she was selfdeprecating.

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        most of your twits to her were basicly calling her out on lying
        you werent really rude or nasty just factual

  6. ramonacoaster says:

    I think Sonja swallowed the Jill Pill. She’s making one mistake after another, giving excuses, defending her actions and not making a sincere apology. Sounds like she’s taking advice from Zarin and if she is then I guess she deserves her popularity downfall. Hopefully we’ll see her come back from that cause it would really be crappy when there is no one on the cast that can bring lightness and humor to the silly situations and issues that these women think are important.

    • quincyil says:

      I don’t know what happened to Sonja in this episode, but I loved her before 9 PM last Thurs. All she had to do to redeem herself at the parade was say ok for Simon to share his story. It would not have affected her standing in the eyes of the 3,000 marchers and it would have made up like her.

      I think this Sonja pill is cute, but when she said Simon and Alex needed to swallow it she did just said, “pill,” and my thoughts ran to cyanide.

      I think she’s coming around, but she’s going to get hit this Thurs. too.

    • Zoey says:

      It’s like there’s a housewife virus going ’round – Sonja caught Jills, and Jill caught Kelly’s. Ramona caught a small dose of Bethenny’s level headedness, Louann’s is so snobby that royal wall won’t let any virus through.

  7. DiaBLa says:

    Jill Zarin danced a lil jig this week ……..saying over and over Thank you, Sonja!!!!!!
    Please SAy your Sorry Sonja and fix it with viewers unless something worse is coming up and your saving your big apology speech for that!!!!!

    Also who else is just digusted with the OC group??? Gretchen and Slimy need to go…..enough of her antics….Bravo – please do background checks and pull their credit reports….seee their bank statements….no more deadbeats!!! her lies about donating money, her cheating on jeff and taking a dying man for his money, and now cheating that girl with the makeup…makes me sick!!! Her and slade deserve each other.

    • Adgirl says:

      Seriously. I really don’t care if Gretchen and Slade marry or not. Please do not bring another life into this world.

      • Dani says:

        Adgirl agree I can’t stand to watch either one of them. And, at this point I could care less if they get married or not. I have only watched one episode of OC and that was enough. I read Lynn’s blog to find out what has gone on and that it good enough for me.

    • TLM says:

      I wonder if Jill sent Sonja a muffin basket the day after the MENY episode aired. LOL.

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      She never got any money from her fiance

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        That’s what she says…she claims he was in debt when he died.

        I suspect Jeff’s will is probably still in probate. I read someone where that his estate earns over a million dollars a year with the licensing agreement with the technology he developed so it can still possibly be earning money even though he is dead.

        • DJ Loops Fruit says:

          yes i believe that is true and im sure if there was money leftover it would go to his kids first
          Who she still seems to have a sort of relationship with

          • dsc60 says:

            she said she got enough to live on for about a year. i think i read somewhere she got $750,000. that would be one heck of a year for me.

  8. Nancy says:

    I bet Jill hasn’t had a good night sleep ever since she departed with “her” $500. to buy NeNe’s hat. Only Jill would come up with an idea to not only to get “her” money back but to make a profit from it. WHO DOES THIS? I see no one so far has made a bid on it. Maybe she can throw in a pair of her old, used, smelly, dirty shoes?
    This “woman” makes me SICK!

    • quincyil says:

      This Zarin Foundation is new.

      I listened to a financial discussion on the radio and rich people like the Clintons and Nancy Pelosi put millions of dollars in Trusts to avoid taxes. I wonder what this Zarin Foundation is all about and why it needs $750.00 bucks.

      • Nancy says:

        Q,
        Doesn’t this kind of behavior scream out IRS audit please?

        • quincyil says:

          I don’t think the IRS pays much attention to all of the businesses of these housewives. They are making wrist bands in their kitchens and collecting feathers from pigeon that smashed into patio windows.

          Why Jill Zaris is selling shoes that I would place in a dumpster is beyond my understanding. She says she is rich. Drop the cloths off at Henry Buhl’s Charity and be done with it. She has to twitter advertise an old pair of pants? Ridiculous.

      • Sam says:

        Family trusts are no big deal. A lot of people have them, not just the very rich. It’s a way to avoid having an estate go through probate, which means no probate taxes, and you set this up so that your inheritors (usually your kids) don’t have to endure any hassles after you die.

        • Anne says:

          That is very true, unless it is a grantor trust. A trust is a separate entity with its own tax ID. It depends on how it is set-up, but most family trust are in fact as you said set-up to diminish both Federal and State taxation on the decedent’s estate. Federal tax so far is not in effect because it was abolished in 2010, but will be brought back by mid-term 2011. NY State taxation on the decedent’s estate is huge. You are looking at taxation at the same rate as the former Federal tax rate. The combined estate tax (federal and state NY) post exclusions were on average 47% on the remainder. So, trust are big in NY.

          • Sam says:

            Thanks for providing additional info about the trusts. I didn’t know about the situation in NY, which makes it even more understandable that Jill (and other NY housewives) would want a family trust.

  9. WindyCityWondering says:

    Sonja had a good rookie year (half year) and could have taken a couple of routes this season. Going after Alex makes no sense! Are her manners really that bad? Is her ego really that out of control? Seriously, she isn’t that bright, nice package but not a Rhodes scholar or a devotee of the Art of War….did she get set up?
    Maybe Bravo will show us the way to redeem yourself with Sonja since Jill can’t seem to buy that clue.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      “….did she get set up?”

      very interesting question that I may have to ponder…

  10. Adgirl says:

    I can’t hate on Sonja too much.
    Her whole me me me reminded me of someone who is starved for individual attention. She probably built up the entire Grand Marshal/Queen for Day role in her mind over the months and just couldn’t understand how emotionally invested Silex was in the event too. Sonja acted like she had no idea how much work Silex put into organizing the event.
    To Sonja, Jill and LuAnn charity involvement is a means to an end socially, not something personal. But to be singled out as the Face of the event is extremely flattering. It was immature of Sonja. She was caught being vain and won’t admit it.

    I think she is terribly insecure since her divorce. It doesn’t help that Brian doesn’t even want to call their relationship “dating”.
    She’s getting old and is scared.

    • quincyil says:

      I actually thought that her relationship with Brian is like Kelly’s with Max. She wanted a love interest and did not want any real relationship placed on the screen if she had one.

      Kelly has a similar issue this year and she stopped filming at one point so that someone that she was dating would not be on the television series.

      Sonja is not young. It’s hard knowing you are alone and in financial trouble.
      She has a grand life, but she should have been more careful with her funds.

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        but didn’t she lose all that money on a movie deal with Travolta? She seems like she was careful with her $, she could have made a bundle off of that- but that maybe she was in over her head?

        • NormaJean says:

          Sonja did not file for personal bankruptcy. She filed Chapter 11 for her production company, which is a reorganization of debt repayment. This is an attempt to save the company and repay the debts that the company has incurred.

    • alicia says:

      It’s ridiculous to base your entire self worth on sex appeal. Give it a rest.
      I don’t know about NY but in palm beach she would be one of many wealthy cougars. And we don’t even know if she will have any money after this year.
      I was embarrassed for her in this episode ! Sonja- concentrate on being a good friend and mother.

      • Zoey says:

        I read in some article that she is strategically filing bankruptcy now before she is handed her divorce settlement motherload, so that will be safe.

        • Anne says:

          One can only file bankruptcy if their liabilities exceed their assets period. Post 2005′s revision of the BK code doing so otherwise would be fraud. Also, the monies she is receiving from her divorce settlement would not be outside the bankruptcy estate. She likely would have this all go to her daughter and be an administrator of the trust where she could receive a distribution for services which can be built into any trust.

          But, bankruptcy before to discharge debt when there is pendant settlement would not be possible. Those monies would be part of her full bankruptcy estate.

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      but after hearing what Alex said to her at the event she had to realize that it meant something to them for her to be getting upset
      all it would have took was her saying i want Simon to speak as well

  11. tweatcyn says:

    Excellent Prairie Blog on Sonja today Q!
    My new blog post is up. Please stop by for some twaddling good times. http://tweattwaddle.blogspot.com/2011/04/sonja-morgan-enough-about-me-what-would.html

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      luvs it!
      Is a twaddle like a twitter?

    • quincyil says:

      We still have Barbra’s record albums from the 70s. My husband and I love her voice.

      • quincyil says:

        That settlement was 6 to 7 million.

        The actual debt was 19,8 million so she has another 12,000 in debt since 2006 when he left. Some is in payments to lawyers, but I think the townhouse lost value when the real estate bubble exploded and some of the loss could have to do with the house. I think it was hard to stop living large, but she has managed to cut back now.

        • quincyil says:

          19.8 million dollars debt

          12 million besides the settlement

          I was typing in an odd way.

      • Dani says:

        My all time favorite album by her is Guilty with Barry Gibb.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Love your blog on Sonja – Bethenny would have been as puzzled as the rest of us with her behavior.

  12. TLM says:

    WTF is up with Tamra Barney’s weird-ass accent? Gift is geft, bitch is betch… just odd…

  13. Amber...Real Wife says:

    Is Lynn blogging MobWives? Hope so! It just started. BBL.

    • Adgirl says:

      Isn’t that show called the RH of NJ??

    • LynnNChicago says:

      Hi Amber! Yes, we’ll be blogging Mob Wives, either Quincy or Harvey will write it up :)

    • quincyil says:

      Just turned it in. Lynn will expand the number of shows if people here want to have them on the board. Dina’s HGTV show and 9 by Design from HGTV are coming. We will continue Celebrity Apprentice after Nene leaves.

      The promos for Celebrity Apprentice have Hope saying that Nene was horrible and that Star hired a body guard. That did not happen last night in the show. I wonder if this is off camera. I have found that promos for shows often are incorrect.

  14. Dani says:

    Maybe Jill set Sonja up to take some of the heat off of her. Seriously, can’t you just hear Jill telling her “Sonja this is your moment you are the GM don’t you dare let Simon horn in on your moment in the spotlight.” Of course it would be in that nasal voice that hits all of us like nails on a blackboard.

    • lovemamaearth says:

      Yes we can hear Jill saying that. Shame on Jill. Too bad Sonja got Zarined.

    • quincyil says:

      I think Jill had nothing to do with this. This was a Sonja power grab which probably happens in society and only the victim is harmed. Here, we watched so Sonja feels the heat.

  15. Adgirl says:

    Sonja looks a little Barbra Streisand doesn’t she?

  16. chismosa says:

    Quincy- thanks for answering me about the Singer name thing on the last blog- I understand about religion and changes that have happened over time in Europe (my family is two branches of Christianity), though i must say, Protestant to Catholic (or vice versa) is not as radical as a Christian religion to or from Judaism. So, for Jews to convert is a bigger deal than for Protestant>Catholic, or vice versa. So the Singer name is very interesting, to me.

    Also thanks for clearing up the Hamptons wedding issue/ march for MENY next day- i guess there were two events, thanks!

    • quincyil says:

      I agree, they leave their entire culture when they change religion.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      depends on who’s opinion you’re asking. My family had to convert from Catholicism to Protestant at the point of a sword in northern Ireland under Cromwell. I’d say that was pretty radical.

      During the famine in Ireland, 100′s of years later, it was was widely reported that Protestant churches would convert Catholics in exchange for food. To convert to feed your babies seems pretty radical to me.

      They both are monotheistic religions, Judiasm preaches that the messiah is coming and Christianity preaches that he’s been here but is coming back. I don’t think it’s as radical of a shift as you might think.

      • quincyil says:

        I am conflicted, one more, half of me is Irish and half of me is English. I have inner struggles on this issue.

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          just become a pagan like me!

          At least that’s what I tell the Jehovah’s Witnesses when they come to the door- I used to put a little note on my mailbox on Sundays- when they would always come around- “please do not ring the bell of the Pagan to discuss Christ. Thank you and Goddess Bless!”

    • RoxyMusic says:

      For the benefit of whoever is blocking my posts: this Jewish conversion to Christianity because the name “Singer” sounds Jewish is making me crazy! As I stated before, my married name was “Carr”, from “Carruba” in reaction to the anti-Italian sentiments we had here in THIS country in the WWII era. Nothing to do with religion, the Pope, Hitler, the Inquisition…nothing but good old American hatred.

      • Anne says:

        Are you saying that someone here thought Mario’s family was jewish Italian? Hardly! They had a name change when they came over at Ellis Island, which is no joke. 35% of all Italian names were changed to some degree because most people who came over were illiterate and/or could not speak English, so when asked for their names the immigration officer did the best they could at coming close to what their name sounded like.

  17. Amber...Real Wife says:

    Commercial Break!

    WOWWWW! These women could eat Carolinebacker and TMAN as a snack! RHONJ is looking a little tame compared with the swagger of these gals! GTG

  18. FlowerPower says:

    I finally tried to watch last week’s NY episode this morning and shut it off about three minutes in. I am really losing my capacity to watch these women! I’ve already given up on OC (used to be my favorite).

    It didn’t help that I finally found The Fabulous Beekman Boys and watched four episodes back-to-back. What an awesome show! I didn’t even mind seeing our dear Sonja in one episode, striking her Grizabella the Glamour Cat pose (one of these times, I swear, she’s going to break out in rousing chorus of Memory).

    How far Bravo has fallen. (And, yet, I keep coming back to it.)

    • chismosa says:

      can you tell me what the Fabulous Beekman Boys is about? I heard about it briefly on this blog and then on another site i visit- i have to check it out apparently but don’t know what it is about

      • FlowerPower says:

        A gay couple (one an ad exec/former drag queen, the other an MD with an MBA who worked for Martha Stewart) bought a farm in upstate NY and are trying to build a business as farmers–they make and sell different products (like goat milk soap). The show folllows them as they navigate the challenges of farming (and commuting to NY for work for the ad guy) while building their business. The episodes I saw were wonderful–funny, touching…. just really great TV.

        • Nancy says:

          It is one of best TV shows I’ve ever seen. I would love for someone to blog about it. There is another man named “Farmer John” that works on the farm and has a very special relationship with his goats (that supply the milk which makes the soap for the farm to run). It’s a very tender show that leaves a smile on your face.
          Very much like Bethenny’s. Hope that help’s.

          • lovemamaearth says:

            And the cheese. I love it too. Series like that prove that it doesn’t require gutter behavior and tickas teeves fighting to be a profitable show.

            MTV’s Jenks series was excellent too.

          • twoile says:

            @Nancy, ERROR has a blog on the Beekman Boys=) Enjoy!

        • chismosa says:

          sounds wonderful, my dream is to move to Europe and be a farmer (farming runs on my father’s side). I should check it out! who goes to medical school to work for Martha Stewart though, hmm, must be interesting storyline. I will try to find it on my listings… thanks everyone!

          • Nancy says:

            He was hired by Martha to do the medical (health) aspect of her show/magazine. I agree it seems rather strange after all that schooling but he seems happy about it.

          • RoxyMusic says:

            It’s about cash flow for one, perhaps the fame game for two. But today there’s not great cash flow for many doctors, and what there is has to be fought for.

  19. chismosa says:

    I have to say Lynn and Quincy- fantastic blog today.

    I wonder- another theory- maybe the producers are setting up Sonja like this, to have her then have a beautiful true redemption storyline which will be UNLIKE the one Jill aimed for last year?
    I.e. – show that Sonja – (who in my opinion is not acting anything like the witch did last season)- can rise above and be gracious and get forgiveness well and leave the little Jill to writhe around in the grass all alone and not be the star of the show anymore. I mean, based on the major previews for the season overall – Jill does not seem like a major player this season. I think the producers have HAD IT with her – as have the viewers. Drama this season will center on Sonja, then the redemption of Sonja. A theory. Luann is inconsequential (hello, i want to see your apartment, immediately!), Kelly will be proven to be kookoo again, and Cindy is just annoying and a non-issue. Alex and Sonja will shine this season- i hope.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I’d like to believe that Sonja was set up for a “redemption” storyline. And it would also be cool to see Jill marginalized by Bravo (she deserves it!) and left to be the shrew she really is! What I am not liking is Alex being crapped on by everyone.

    • Zoey says:

      Didn’t we read or hear something last year about Jill and Kelly being only part time on the show? Don’t know where that came from or if there was any truth in it, but I read it a few times.

  20. vilzvet says:

    Just got a full closeup of Jill dancing on the TV Land Awards in that pink frock. Also Kelly got a closeup. Ramona looked great, dancing to Liza Minnelli. The wives haven’t appeared yet.

  21. Jill’s personal blogger had no idea what Jill was talking about when she mentioned a Bravo DVD. Jill is going to try to get her an advanced copy of RHONY.

    From Twitter:

    lisanewengland @Jillzarin What Bravo DVD Jill? Should I contact someone?You can DM me if you would like or email Thanks!!!!

    Jillzarin @lisanewengland I can forward request to the people who do that if you want. You know you can’t post blog early though right?

    • chismosa says:

      she’s ridiculous. Can you imagine Andy finding out she is offering advanced copies to people? She’s so disgusting. She’ll get them to HER bloggers so that they have extra time to write fabulous blogs about her. HATE

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Andy should be informed of Mrs. Zarin’s gracious offer (to her sister) as it is doubtful that Bravo would want this to happen!

        • Cheri says:

          Lynn should request the same DVD. So she has extra time to write hers too. Email Andy and ask for the one Jill is sending her blogger

        • LynnNChicago says:

          Jill either IS this blogger or it is her sister/friend/relative. Lisanewengland WILL get that advance copy, Jill will either make a copy and give it to her or Jill will watch it then send it on to her pal.

          Bravo isn’t giving it to her, and its all a show on Twitter to cover their tracks and make it look like Bravo is giving it to her rather than Jill giving out her copy (Which I’m sure she’s not allowed to do)

          • DJ Loops Fruit says:

            i think your right i think that woman is pretending to be Jills sister but in fact is actually Jill
            which would give your twits back and forth a whole new meaning

            • quincyil says:

              Do you all see how Junior High this ploy by Jill is? I’m sure Andy pays no attention to Jill Zarin’s twitter.

          • quincyil says:

            This is further evidence that Jill Zarin reads this site. She could DM all of this, but then Lynn and the board members here would not know about it.

            This is “In Your Face” ” I hate Jill Zarin” followers.

    • Zoey says:

      And tell Jill’s personal blogger not to keep the u -stream very long. Old urine does not smell too good…

  22. vilzvet says:

    Did Charlotte Rae really just say that? She said she was so proud that all of the girls on the show “Facts of Life” grew up to be straight!

  23. boston02127 says:

    I knew Sonja was not as nice as she was coming off as last season. I had a gut feeling about her, I think what we saw during “her” march was exactly who she is.

    Making that march about herself was sickening to watch. Hundreds of people that were there in the rain to show how strongly they feel about equal marriage rights were basically shoved aside by Sonja.

    Also, having it televised could of gone a long way. If the message of the march could of helped to open some viewers minds to making this legal would of been great, but Sonja ruined it for all that were involved and watching at home. I thought she was extremely insulting.

  24. boston02127 says:

    Great blog Lynn & Quincy. Thank you.

  25. boston02127 says:

    The way Gretchen talks (baby-ish) and the sound of her voice is like fingernails on a chalk board.

    OMG, thank GOD Retchin’ Bossy’s dogs can’t understand the hateful things she’s saying to them. Go vomit up another meal while you’re calling Slade Tubba-wubba, beeyotch.

    What is with both Tamra and Retchin’ calling people “retards” and “fat tards”? There are actually people who mentally retarded, and this is a SLUR that should never be used by adults that have an ounce of sense. I am stunned at this. It is the equivalent of the f-word for gay men.

    I hope Retchin’s former partner puts her out of business.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      The horrid housewife in Miami used the r word too – the one married to Scottie Pippen. My jaw dropped. Didn’t notice the OC ladies using it – because I get so bored I stop listening to them.

    Does Gretchen really think we think her “boobs” are real? I can’t watch OC anymore.

  29. boston02127 says:

    Vicki makes such a hugh deal about her job. You might think she was the President’s right hand person. How hard is it to sell insurance? When I got my car, it took me about 30 to get insurance.

  30. HD says:

    Okay…Peggy is crazy. LOL!

  31. Amber...Real Wife says:

    The only one who set Sonja up was Sonja! She definitely got the S2 head swelling and thought she was the “star” of the show. With Bethenny gone, Jill named most hated, KookooforKoKoPuffsKel in a daze, Luann ridiculously playing aging popstar and Ramona in constant sales mode, the only competition would be Alex. However, she just couldn’t take Alex as seriously because of the disdain JKL felt for her and she does live across the bridge. She may not have known or even cared as to how much work Silex put in for the MENY organization. All she wanted was to be the “only” speaker from the RHONY and furthermore was given a title to boot. What is most telling in this whole fiasco is that Silex continues to advocate for the organization even as MENY has responded with a deafening silence regarding this nasty drama. They have neither backed Silex or Sonja, choosing to stay above the fray although they are knee deep in the shit. Money talks, bullshit walks! Sonja must have given a nice donation to have them invent a title of GrandMarshal and cancel Silex’s speech. I feel their refusal to speak is an attempt not to save Sonja’s reputation but more to save their own! Quid Pro Quo. They catered to a narcissist over emotionally invested volunteers for the money and aren’t to talk about it. They got the donation, Sonja got the title and exclusive right to speak and Silex got screwed. Boy Silex is a glutton for punishment or very forgiving and dedicated to this cause.

          • DJ Loops Fruit says:

            didnt he say at the dinner what he used to do

            • BlueSky_Forever says:

              Slade did mortgages so when the housing market fell, his company (was he a VP?) went “poof.” He made a lot of $ but squandered it all – trying to look like Mr. Big Shot.

          • alicia says:

            I believe he owned a title company.

            • alicia says:

              Also, I wonder what happened to the couple that Slade and Jo interacted with in the beginning of OC ? She took Jo riding and Slade was trying to get him onboard as a business client? They had a large home like Jeana’s. Curious to know how their fortunes fared in this economy.

  33. boston02127 says:

    HA….Slade just said he’s over qualified. Too bad he wasn’t over qualified with his knowledge of his bank account and put something away for a rainy day instead of buying Hummers & diamonds. Now it looks like he can’t even afford a hair brush.

  34. Caligirl says:

    Did someone already point out that in the above photo of Sonja, there is a photo of Sonja on the table below that is the exact pose of the painting by Brian…which explains where he got the odd, legs spread pose. Or is it a photo of the actual painting?

      really good catch!!

      • Caligirl says:

        What an odd photo to have displayed of yourself in your home. Seems like a photo you’d give your boyfriend or husband. And how many portraits does one need of themselves?? I think this speaks to Sonja being a tad self-absorbed. I find her sort of sad.

        • Kellita says:

          Definitely!! Who fills their home with pics/portraits of themselves besides Sonja and some self-absorbed movie stars??

    • chismosa says:

      Excellent eyes! Some painters do paint from pictures rather than an actual human posing in front of them, maybe that is what Brian did – so Sonja would not have to sit for hours in front of him – ha ha! Interesting

    What is under Peggy’s left boob in the scene with Tamara.

  36. boston02127 says:

    Those are some BIG boobies Peggy bought, there bigger than my head!

  37. CJAddictedNow says:

    I thought it was a photo of the painting.
    So I wasn’t looking at the screen when Peggy was said she was excited to debut her twins, and silly me, I thought she was talking about babies for a sec until I looked up and saw her holding her boobs. Geeez.

    • lovemamaearth says:

      I think it’s a snap of the painting too.

    • janet says:

      A lot of artists who paint from a photo use a projector to sketch the image onto a canvas. It is easier. But.. if you don’t see anything in that person that you like or love it comes out as a mess. I’ve tried it, can’t do it! I would have done what Brian did. Poor fella!

  38. Noreen says:

    Donn is trying so hard and Vicki is impossible.

  39. CJAddictedNow says:

    Lynn, I just wanted to take a minute and thank you for this fantastic site. I only started watching the housewives a few months ago and started reading the various related sites. I narrowed it down to yours because it was not only the most entertaining and updated, but I despise Jill Zarin too! LOL. I also love reading all the comments and enjoyed them. This has become my home away from home during a rough time in my life and just wanted to let you know you are awesome and appreciated!

  40. HD says:

    So Donn has not retired.

  41. boston02127 says:

    I hate to go here but….Vicki would be a lot prettier if she got a nose job. Nothing major, just enough so we’re not looking up her nostrils all the time.

    • Noreen says:

      I couldn’t believe how tall she was next to Tamara in her barefeet. I want to like Vicki, but she makes it hard.

    • Nancy says:

      I think she needs a chin implant.

    • VAgirl says:

      If she got a nose job or chin implant, then we’d be ragging on her about being one of those shallow Orange County women who only care about their looks – wouldn’t we?

        Yes to a point, Blue sky. But I was born n bred here, and
        very few of these “Jersey” types actually were-

        None of this crap would happen in our lovely town though,
        right?! ;o}

        • NJ Bev says:

          born in Californis?

              I am pretty sure we live in same town,
              Blue Sky, think we had this convo a
              couple months ago. You came here
              from Mid-west quite a while ago, right?
              You’re hubby worked at landmark
              building where the transistor and Big-Bang
              theory were developed. your son a junior
              and you you have 2 very rambunctious
              German Shepherds, right?

              Ask Lynn for my e-mail if you like, we
              could talk further. I think we have much in common, just ask IHJZ!!!

              • BlueSky_Forever says:

                only if you promise pinkie swear that you are not mob connected! I already have to deal with the fact that my son has friends whose parents are umm I don’t want to know really!!

      Born and raised in the OC and can honestly sat these women are a subculture. It is embarrassing that they chose these women to represent Orange County. The people with real money don’t act like this. They’re like caricatures, like a skit from SNL. Truly a joke.

      • BlueSky_Forever says:

        Bravo always finds the worst of the worst for their shows, like they are trying to fulfill the stereotypes.

        • NJ Bev says:

          all reality shows do that-(MTV)
          Jersey shore is the worst, only one is from NJ,
          (sammy) and most of them aren’t even Italian!

          • BlueSky_Forever says:

            My son saw Sammie at the local LA fitness gym. According to him, she’s totally hot. I have a friend who looks like her 25 years later….they are not related & the personalities are totally different. My friend is stunning. BTW, Sammie is from Hazlet.

      • NJ Bev says:

        I totally believe you. they are caricatures.

        • Caligirl says:

          Oh, and I worked at an ad agency with Scott Dunlop years ago and he was the coolest, most down to earth, funny guy. Can’t believe he created these Frankenstein caricature, creatures! Sure has made a fortune from scraping the bottom of the barrel..

              I believe at the time he was an Art Director. A big, kind of loud goofy guy. Remember him organizing an event to support the troops during the Gulf War in which we at the agency put on a big party for the military families where they could come and film messages on video for Christmas to send to the soldiers. All scott’s idea and organization. Pretty cool.

      I’ll bet lisa is up to 100 by now.

        that’s only because Lynn’s readers go to Lisa’s blog to check it out. I couldn’t get past the first sentence in Lisa’s blog. Now I refuse to go to that site…won’t be long before it’s getting 0 hits.

        • housewifeaddict says:

          That’s funny – same with me. I went to see what it was all about, read one sentence and got bored and left.

    Gretchen knows she was wrong. I gotta side with Slade on this one.

      • housewifeaddict says:

        oh yeah. but he’s still slimey.

        • vilzvet says:

          In her Bravo blog she states she does not think he is fat. How can that be? She said it over and over again hat he is 20 pounds overweight. To his credit she wrote that he has since lost 15 pounds.

        • twoile says:

          YEP!!!!!!! hope this is the begining of dumping slimy=)

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      I’m torn, part of me says that if the shoe was on the other foot that it would be considered abuse by some for a man to tease a woman about her weight issues…so what she was doing is NOT okay.

      But then, I think….I can’t stand either of them so I don’t care…..

      Not to mention, a shifty drifter like Slade probably never knows where his next meal is coming from so he has to pack it on while he can when the eating is good.

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        Maybe she is concerned about his health and thats why she is so hard on him about his weight
        but what people that do that dont realize is all it ends up doing is make the other person eat even more
        for a variety of reasons one of them being control
        taking control of one of the things you can
        your own body

      • Zoey says:

        That’s funny!

  45. kbinldo says:

    Well, apparently whatever happened is all water under the bridge. I do have to keep reminding myself that we’re only seeing what the producers want us to see, & it’s all edited for maximum dramatic effect (see: RHOBH season 1, where Kyle got the sweetheart edit just so her attack on her sister in the last episode would have much more impact). Regardless, I still think what Sonja did was pretty crappy & she should realize that while she knows what happened afterwards, we don’t.

    And it always amazes me that folks in the public eye always forget that when it comes to “scandals,” it’s the cover-up, not the actual “crime,” that people can’t forget and/or forgive.

  46. Noreen says:

    Ok, what the hell is all over Tamara’s legs on WWHL preview? Is that oil or is she covered in saran wrap?

  47. Noreen says:

    I have to agree with Alexis on this one. Tamara is classless.

  48. Noreen says:

    You cannot own a law firm if you are not a lawyer. Illegal!

    • boston02127 says:

      LOL, I was just going to ask about that.

      • Noreen says:

        I have been a paralegal since 1984 (yes, I am that old) and you cannot have an ownership interest in a law firm unless you are a lawyer. His dad can give him money or Eddie can be an employee but you can’t own it. Unless the laws are different in CA, but I doubt it.

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      LOL i think he said it was a family buisness and his dad is the lawyer

      • Eve says:

        I don’t think it’s his real dad. His statement that he “owns” a law firm shows he is not that bright.

        • vilzvet says:

          Or maybe he has a 5 percent cut or some other such tiny number.

          • MK Valle says:

            Come on ladies, give the guy a break. His father is an attorney who owns a law firm, the firm is probably in a family trust. Not a big deal.

    I really felt for the men tonight. Gary is obviously not well, and it’s almost cruel to continuously make them trash him in the board room. It’s a lose/lose situation. And WTF with all of The Donald’s “Oh, but isn’t he nice?” bs. Yes, yes, why can’t you see that making them trash the work skills of a man who isn’t well is weird?

        it was 75 for eddie and they had tech probs only 1 cam was working so they didnt show teh results just said them
        I voted for Slade

        i will say im now starting to doubt that eddie is tottally straight
        anyone that pretends he doesnt know what Carol Channing looks like is a liar

        or a closet case

        • error404 says:

          LOL!

          The only reason why I know who Carol is is because I’m old enough to remember when she was a big star and always on tv. When Pandora Box kept joking about “raspberries” I had to explain it to my hubby, who’s in his 30s. I’d bet my whole paycheck that my nephews who are in their 20s have no frigging clue who she is.

          • DJ Loops Fruit says:

            eddie isnt in his 20′s though and every question looked like he was faking on purpose

    “I am not gay, I have nothing against gays. They just said that to make me look bad”

    Good night all. I don’t care who wins the poll. Ick to both.

    Byeeeeeeeeeeee.

  56. error404 says:

    Considering Bravo’s obsession with boob jobs, dog poop, “swimming in the lady pond”, calling straight men gay, and cat fights, does anyone else suspect that the executive producer is actually 13 year old Ben Weiner?

  57. TLM says:

    All kidding aside, Gretchen is a vile human being. I never wanted to believe Tamra when she said, “A liar is a liar is a liar,” but I’m seeing her in a whole new light.

    I don’t believe she ever had bulemia. No one who actually suffered from bulemia could continue to torment another person about their weight, either publicly or privately.

    As to the nutritionist and psychology credentials she claims to have, did anything in her vast training tell her that constantly making fun of someone’s weight, calling them degrading names and humiliating them was helpful in getting them to change? That it would actually help to change their behavior? Or is all that just common sense? Either way, she fails.

    Finally, after watching her former fiancee waste away from cancer, unable and uninterested in eating, one would think that this piece of garbage would be thankful that her new partner, who she claims to be in love with, is healthy enough to enjoy food, and she wouldn’t be torturing him over ten pounds. She would be inviting him to join her to work out and be supportive rather than being a hateful c***.

    • AMEN.

      I was so disgusted with her bullshit tonight. I dated an abusive piece of shit who knew that I had issues with disordered eating my whole life and still made shitty comments and tried to dictate what i could and couldn’t eat. Funny thing is- HE was fat! HE would eat whole pizzas at 2am after drinking a case of beer! But I never ever ever told him he was fat. I never even hinted at it. Because a decent person doesn’t go out of their way to make someone they care about feel bad about themselves. In fact, I would be embarrassed if I picked out someones obvious insecurities just to make them feel worse about them.

      The issue is that Gretchen thinks she’s golden because she succeeded in making the average viewer think that she’s the good girl and Tamra is a lying villain. So now she just thinks that she can do and say whatever she wants, so long as she giggles and flashes her cheesy pageant girl veneers.

    • Zoey says:

      I agree. Even if she’s trying to drum up a storyline to involve Slimey and herself, this one makes her look awful. Imagine if we were watching the GUY tell the GIRL how chubby she was all the time?
      I just can’t believe she is that clueless to keep harassing him like that. Looks like she wears the pants with them, and it might border on emotional abusive. She studied psychology, and in my opinion, I think the vast majority who study it come from screwed up backgrounds themselves, that’s why they’re interested in it!

      And lastly, I cannot take her laughing at her own stupid comments any more. That is such an annoying habit she has. What she says is not even funny, but she must think that’s charming or something. It’s damn annoying.

      • Zoey says:

        PS And I include myself in the group interested in psychology due to a dysfunction or ten in my family!

  58. Adgirl says:

    I can’t stand Gretchen Pageanthead.
    I swear she looks like the human version of a Miss Orange County doll. Super huge head with the side-part hot-roller long blonde hair, macro veneers and make up gun set on 1983.

    UGG. And her boyfriend is the bum from Mystery Date.

    Lovely couple.

  59. lillybee says:

    I can’t believe that I am on Simon’s side over caring for the kids when Tamara was in Spain.

    • Adgirl says:

      I agree! If Tamra couldn’t speak to Simon maybe her mother could have made arrangements for their kids to be with him.

  60. lillybee says:

    I did love Tamara calling Alexis Jesus Barbie.

  61. CJAddictedNow says:

    Thanks for the welcome all! I read an article in some NY Society blog that addressed Sonja as the author had known her over the years, and she talked about comments posted in another article in the NY Post after the March, so I went to read the comments (sinced they sounded juicy) and lo and behold the comments had all been removed. All of them. How does that happen? I understand from reading this blog about the issue over Jill’s control of Bravo’s site, and I notice that Gretchen posts only comments (on her website) which praise her and demean Vicki and Tamra, but the New York Post? How is that possible?
    But at the end of the day, she can’t touch this site!

    • chismosa says:

      i’m sure they have contacts at the Post. Not totally unbelievable maybe?

    • quincyil says:

      I have noticed posts disappearing over time also.

      Jill controlls as much of the internet as possible. She would like to eliminate this site, but making friends with Simon at the end of season four did not accomplish that. I think Jill believed that this was Simon’s web site or that he has some kind of power over the content here. I believe the hypocrisy comment in her secret blog to her favorite fans and in the bravo blog has something to do with this web site and a twitter account that are anti Jill Zarin and very popular. I remember a great deal about Jill’s twitters and article comments from last Oct., Nov., and Dec. as I researched and took notes for the IHJZ 4th season that we created when they posponed the show out of the blue.

      This week’s episode struck a cord with Jill Zarin now as she screamed at Alex at the march and went to their house, but felt ill at ease with Alex after that hug.

      Those two are going to the OK corral and Alex will have the advatage as she was raised in Kansas and Texas.

      It looks like Sonja will stand her ground and try to blame Simon again next week, but that they will call a truce rather quickly.

      Jill likes to have lots of people on her side and she will try to play Sonja in real life right now. Jill tweeted Sonja and told her forgetting Simon’s name was great. I believe that was a simple mistake on Sonja’s part. I believe Sonja that she didn’t know Simon last fall and she really only got to know Alex on Scary Island. Simon was working quite a bit at the hotel last year and he really was not on the show a lot so he did not interact with Sonja. They had no communication in the summer as they are only work mates. Sonja easily could have forgotten Simon’s name and that comment probably was not a dig even if Jill wants it to be.

    • chismosa says:

      the results of their poll:

      What do you think is the reason for Jill’s new look?
      Thank you for voting!
      Yes, absolutely. 61.07%

      No, she looks the same. 21.67%

      Maybe, I can’t tell 17.26%

      and it says “while her castmate Sonja Morgan reportedly thinks she had “too many injectables” put into her face.”- um didn’t Sonja say on WWH that she went WITH Jill to Dr. Wexler’s??? This is so ridiculous

  62. Kathy Monkman says:

    Ok it’s getting utterly excrutiating watching Donn and Vicki on this show. I will be SO relieved when he chews his arm off to get away from her. She’s just flat out emotionally abusive to him. There are many women who would appreciate him…hope he finds some loving attention now that he’s free.

    • Zoey says:

      Same here! What a beotch she was being.

    • I so agree with you. She has no respect for him. Vicki would be happy if Don was just as consumed with his career as she is with hers. She gets her kudos from her “work” family, which is sad since she is (or was) blessed to have a real family waiting for her at home. Instead, Vicki sees the gorgeous house and not what makes it a home. We always wonder what our last thoughts and wishes will be before our last breath on this Earth. I wish she could.

  63. Gretchen is disgusting. Someone needs to tell her that just because you laugh after every sentence you say, doesn’t mean you’re actually funny.

    I definitely believe that Gretchen and Slade spread rumors about Eddie being gay. Why would Jay Mohr lie? It’s not like he’s in a position where he needs to talk shit about Bravo reality stars in order to gain fame. He’s an established actor and comic. He has no reason to make that up. Gretchen is just as slimey as Slade and I can just picture them now laying in bed and thinking of ways to “get back at” Tamra for outing her as the gold digging slut that she is. And good for Tamra for letting the viewers know where they can read all about Gretchens legal issues regarding her ex. I’m tired of that phony getting away with her bs.

    I hate her even more for making me feel sorry for Slade tonight. It’s never okay to make someone you supposedly care about feel insecure about themselves.

    Tamra looked really good on WWHL. I wasn’t fond of that discount stripper dress she had on though. Why can’t 98% of housewives figure out how to buy a dress that isn’t totally tacky?

    What is there to even say about Vicki at this point? She’s been acting like an idiot for 5 years now and tbh I’m totally bored with her. She needs some psychological help, and I don’t say that with even a smidgen of snark. She honest to god needs to see someone.

    Alexis is a humorless cow. She’s the type of woman that makes me ashamed to own a vagina. She thinks women are nothing more than sex objects who cook dinner and give birth. She’s like a robot who gives blowjobs. She deserves that sweaty mess of a husband.

    Peggy is a fruitcake for sure, but I’m liking her so far. She doesn’t seem vicious or overtly catty, which is refreshing when it comes to housewives. I still think she needs to get herself to a real doctor though.

    • Zoey says:

      How strange that TWO people actually believe that they can touch a lip gloss tube on the outside, and thus figure out if the person is allergic to what’s on the inside! Peggy needs to drop the constant ‘holistic’ talk thing; she says it so much. We get it. Well, we don’t get it, but we get that you get something…

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        Yes, how ‘holistic’ is alcohol? But she is worried about the dry ice….(but I wouldn’t want that crap in my drink)

  64. Adgirl says:

    Am I the only one who thinks Vicki has been interested in another man during the last few seasons?
    She is just so bored, rude and over Donn. She makes faces when he talks about what booze he will drink. Personally, I think Donn may have a serious drinking problem and Vicki was sick & tired of it. I’m speculating, but I think she also developed a crush on someone else.

    • lillybee says:

      I would take Donn in a New York minute. He seems to be such a decent man.

      • Suebhoney says:

        Wonder if Jeanna (sp?) is going to jump all over Donn once this is all over…she LOVES him! My stomach hurt watching scenes of V & D tonight…I do feel badly for him. He must be very lonely. I know I would be if my husband treated me as badly as Vicki treats Donn.

        Also, I am soooooo sick of hearing Vicki talk about work…ugh. So “Dear Vicki”: We f’in get it already…you love to work, work, work, work. And you push your work, work, work, work crap on everybody and else and let me tell you something sweetie…it’s either going to kill you or kill every relationship around you. And I really don’t care about the outcome because you are stubborn and selfish and self absorbed and won’t listen to the people around you anyway so shut up already!! No one cares how much you work and not one soul wants to hear another word about it. You are not impressing anyone.

        Hi Hannah Honey~
        So did I miss anything or did you not watch OC last night either?
        How are you doing today? That shea butter is working wonders on my poor feet & they thank you. lol

      • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

        And the rest of my body too. ;)

        • HD says:

          Oh good! Yes you can use it anywhere. I use it all over because it just works wonders and makes your skin so soft. It works espeicially well on your feet. :)

          Girlllllllll, I did watch OC and although it was not that interesting one thing that stood out was Vicki and Donn and how horrible she treats him. It was really sad. I always thought Donn should have been with Jeanna anyway. Vicki just totally dismissed him and you can see him trying so hard but I think in her heart she has already given up on their marriage. She said she was going to be gone for the next 6 weeks. How in the hell are you gone for 6 weeks straight doing insurance stuff? What is she doing selling insurance to everyone in the world. You would think she was on Obama’s healthcare panel or something. This is ridiculous!

          I think Vicki is having an affair or on the verge of having an affair or something. You are just not that removed from your family because of some damn insurance. Vicki does love to work, she always has but something is off her. She is also going to her reunions (not sure if it is college or high school) but Donn is not even going. How do you not invite him? But remember she did that before as well. It is really bad. I feel bad for Donn. I hope he gets with Jeanna.

          • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

            I always thought those solo trips with just the women or her by herself where very strange & as my friend Judge Judy says, if it doesn’t make sense then it’s usually a lie. I still think Vicki would rather be with Tamra than Don but won’t admit it. lol
            Also doesn’t Gretchen papa look a lot like Don?
            Maybe it’s that beard thing they all have now. But they are both very cute.
            These trips alone are so Vicky can have some young drunk guy (he would have to be) & no one would know. ;p
            I hope Jeanna & Donn get together too. I know Jeanna’s hubby had brain damage from a car accident but him & their son talk to Jeanna like she is a piece of crap.

            • HD says:

              I always hated that for Jeanna. It seemed like she had such a sad life.

              Someone else had mentioned that maybe Vicki like Tamara. LOL! I think Vicki wants to live like she is young again, going out drinking, meeting men, having them treat her like she is so super sexy. She has gotten caught up in the lights camera action. Don is a good man but she can’t see that.

    Good morning. HD, I’m luvin my shea butter too. My fingernails look great from using it!

    • HD says:

      Oh good! It really works wonders. That stuff they sale in the Walgreens and stuff is not the real deal. Once you get the real thing you can totally tell the difference. Just keep using it and your skin and everything will keep looking so nice.

      • boston02127 says:

        I got mine from EBay. It’s 100% natural. It was only $5.00, it’s a good size container too.

      • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

        I am confused. Do I get the real stuff from Walgreens or someplace else Hannah?
        I would like to get some for my mama too.
        Hi Boston~;)

        • HD says:

          Oh no. That stuff in Walgreens is just watered down. I would do like Boston did and order it on Ebay.

        • boston02127 says:

          Morning BaaBee Loves—Try Ebay. If you’re not familiar with EBay just type it in and on the right side you can check of “show lowest prices first”.

          • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

            We are Ebay users so I we have an account. That makes it even easier thank you both sweeties.

  67. boston02127 says:

    Jill’s tweet~~I picked up a lot of twitter and facebook followers this week. WELCOME! I tell the truth the whole truth and nothing but the truth!
    .
    .
    Umm, about that Jill…no ya don’t. You wouldn’t know the truth if it bit you in the ass.

  68. boston02127 says:

    Jill and Kelly have both been tweeting to “Lisa” about her so called blog. I’ve been watching that blog since it came out. I posted on it the other day saying I enjoyed the show but thought it was rude of Jill to be saying f****** a***** on TV.
    It got deleted.

  69. VAgirl says:

    Good morning, Baabee, HD, and Boston. The pollen here in VA is killing me. My head feels like it’s about to explode or implode, I don’t know which. I saw Jill and the girls on the TVLand Awards last night. I think Jill got confused and dressed for the Kids Choice Awards instead (LOL).

    • HD says:

      Morning, VAgirl. I have horrible allergies as well and where I live is notorious for them. I didn’t watch those awards but I did see that horrible Easter dress Jill had on. It seems lately the women’s clothes are going down hill fast.

    • boston02127 says:

      VAgirl—Good morning. I read an article about pollen & allergies. It said if you take one tablespoon of pure natural honey everyday within a year pollen & allergies won’t bother you anymore. They said it has to be pure honey, like from a bee keeper not the market kind.

      • jeang says:

        I heard honey like from a local roadside stand or flea market. I have acres of orange and grapefruit trees all around me so I got some at a local honey stand near me. Works great and I always had horrible sinus allergies.

      • Kellita says:

        It’s got to be local honey, so it contains the bee pollen from the local foliage. I get mine from a little health food store nearby, labeled “Local Honey.” It works wonders for the next season. Honey produced now will help with fall allergies, because it takes a while for your immune system to build up. But it really works!

        • VAgirl says:

          Thanks for the allergy tips about honey. Don’t know if we have any locally grown, but I will check it out.

    • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

      Good morning VAgirl~
      Jill looked like an ad for Pepto Bismal. Don’t know how to spell it.
      Sorry about your poor head..

    • FlowerPower says:

      Oh, I feel for you VAgirl. I’m sitting here with a box of tissues and my eyes are so itchy I can hardly read the screen. That’s what I get for working in the yard and forgetting to take allergy meds!

      I’ve tried honey in the past. It worked when it was local honey (the beekeeper kept his bees on the farm where I worked and we sold the honey at the farmstand). I didn’t have much luck with honey that wasn’t local.

      • vilzvet says:

        I’m just confirming that the part with the HWs presenting at the Awards was edited for TV? I saw them frequently in the audience during the show but not onstage. Did I miss them during a bathroom break?

        • VAgirl says:

          They didn’t present an award. They were up there briefly and each said one line about housewives in past tv shows – then there was a montage about housewives past on the big screen. It was pretty cute. Cindy really has a New Yawk accent. It was about the next to the last thing in the program I’m sure it will be repeated.

          • vilzvet says:

            Thanks, I missed it. It must have been right before the excellent Kotter reunion. And I already erased it!

      • alicia says:

        I buy bee pollen from whole foods- it looks like chicken buillion granules. 1/8 of a teaspoon dissolved in warm water every day. It is helping my terrible allergies. You can store it in the refrigerator.

        • VAgirl says:

          Thanks!

        • chismosa says:

          hi Alicia- i live near a Whole Foods and don’t know if i can get ‘natural honey’ which i would love to, but don’t think i can, so these granules i may try- this sounds great. So it is natural honey right not processed? I would know by reading the labels ? I don’t want to buy something processed. i’m so going to try this
          i should start taking now for fall allergies?

          • alicia says:

            It is called “local pollen” and is produced within 30 miles of me. Your area should have your own local version of it. I have 2 indoor dogs that contribute to my allergies and they are not allowed on my bed anymore ! Very sad for all of us as I rival JZ w/ the doggie worship…

  70. boston02127 says:

    My grandfather just got here. Construction is starting today for the second floor where I’ll be living. They are putting in a small kitchen and are closing in the front & back halls for private entries. It’s only going to be a 4 room apartment but I think it will be nice. Yesterday I cleaned & organized the bedroom & living room. The living room use to be the master bedroom. I still have so much to do. He’s cranky and telling me to hang up some damp sheets in the doorways to keep the dust down. LOL, I have to go. Have a good moring everyone.

  71. DJ Loops Fruit says:

    in the sonja alex simon pic entitled friends again who else thinks that Sonja just cut the cheese LOL

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      IMO she is having a hard time smiling with the duck lips work – she has the weird too many injectables face going on. She has definately forgotten she is being photographed with other people!

    • Kellita says:

      Yeah, she never looks like she’s one of the gang, smiling and leaning in. She’s always got that “Sonya Royalty Pose” (as Lynn said Lol) going on. She just seems so full of herself.

  72. Casey says:

    Did you guys notice that Andy seemed somewhat angry last night. He kept cutting off Tamra as she answered. Andy did ask some good questions which I am proud of him for. Jack. Laurita appeared to be a last minute filler judging by her tweets – I wonder if Eddie was not going to go on or maybe Tamra was giving them a hard time and threatening not to go on. I am not a Gretchen fan but the way Tamra talks about her is not necessary. I have to say after watching WWHL I dislike Tamra even more.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      IMO – Andy doesn’t seem to like Tamra very much – she is always bringing up the money he makes (and that she doesn’t), that NYE Kiss was gross, plus she can say such nasty things without warning – like the legal website with news about Gretchen’s lawsuits.

  73. karenne says:

    I like Simon and Alex alot.

    But…They’ve been placed in the slot to be the ones kicked around, no matter what. This season, Alex tries too hard to stand up for the truth…..but they dont care what the truth is! Luann said it for them….”Alex has found her voice and she needs to zip it”.
    could be paraphrasing that…but meaning is the same for sure!

    Alex wants to be a part of this group of AssHat women..and Why Why Why????? They are all obnoxious, nasal sounding, lying, hags!

    Jill has lost her power,
    Luannn has lost her count,
    Ramona is just being Ramona, trying to deal with her big mouth and her life, trying to make money and enjoy it all!
    Kelly is Koo Koo Kelly and expectations of her are ZERO….
    Sonja is trying to redeem herself, from her summer of drinking and driving. Her acting all cutesie poo, calling herself a Gay Icon….ahem…and screaming at Alex too many times, and insulting Simon, throwing Alex out of her house telling her she has no manners!
    well…NONE of them are TRUE SOCIALITES and they all have bad manners.

    I dont know if Alex and Simon continue to do this show for money, or for kicks, or for the other opportunties bound to come their way, from doing the show…but Alex needs to STOP trying to stick up for herself, and Promote the REAL TRUTH…..at the wrong times…because she is afraid she’ll never get around to being listened to….or on tape.
    but it is her one flaw….trying to be the one to speak the truth to these B’s and make them see who they are……
    thats never gonna happen, especially on camera!

    So have fun on the show Alex, and Simon, and Know I love you alot but dont try to let those B’s get real…..Their agenda is themselves ONLY…..They dont care about you and wouldnt hang out with you except for this show. Or, hang with one another most likely!

    Sonja, I liked her first year, she seemed reasonable and probably saved some lives, during the scary island trip, when Kelly went KooKoo.

    Now, she is acting like Sonjas EVIL TWIN SISTER. FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE
    I cant watch this anymore….
    Even the old timers, are giving out fake production lines…..why?
    thank Good ness for this blog….I’ll just read this and Fast Forward through a lot of the parts, or probably not watch it at all.

    Bravo has come up with a lot of shows I’ve loved over the years….and now….they are all becoming paradies of themselves and not becoming interesting and new anymore!
    the HouseWives….they gotta end.
    They are Boring and Fake as all get out.

    I used to like WWHL too….but Andy is playing too many serious head games with the shows guests…like having one person who hates someone, on right after, the next week. Asking Who do you like better type questions….Come on Andy..thats just mean.

    and what the heck does jz have over you anyway, Andy?
    to get you to change the votes?

    Andy!!!!!! that wasnt cool!!!!!!
    Now we cant count on any of them being real…..hahahahaha as if we really did.

    bravo….no bravo today for you.
    you think we are all pretty stupid.
    not this girl….

    • ramonacoaster says:

      Yes, Alex and Simon get kicked around a lot ever since the first season. But if they didn’t, they would be irrelevant to the show. How long could they get away with getting attention for their fashion choices and relationship. I personally like that there is an underdog on this show that I could root for and it’s Alex.
      I just think it’s funny that with 4 seasons of this show Alex still looks shocked when others get down and dirty with the insults. It’s like she expects them to behave with a sense of decorum and respect which is a credit to her because that’s how Alex treats people. These women are fighting to maintain their imaginary status in their small worlds and unfortunately feel the need to step on other people to do it.

    • error404 says:

      JMO but RHoAt was about racism, and RHoNY is about politics.

      JZ is a fascist complete with her own manifesto prescribing how to snag a sugar daddy and live the Ayn Rand lifestyle.

      Alex’s ill delivered leftist stands, from “Girl’s night is sexist” to “This march is about gay rights, NOT how fabulous Ms Thang is” isn’t just lost on these past-their-prime Barbies, but the crux of why Jill feels she has to destroy her.

      How can Zarin show up to a pro-gay marriage march when she’s busy tweeting her political aspirations along with The Donald? Someone must have convinced her at the last minute that she could do damage control while perhaps picking up a few log cabin supporters…. love the sinner, hate the sin, right.

  74. WindyCityWondering says:

    Viewers don’t know the extent of the behind the scenes nonsense going on with any given housewife. Andy says they call him all the time – he is a glorified viva sitter! Some of those poll questions are down right mean but maybe he is trying to show some of them that they are not all that…. On WWHL you can tell if Andy has a difficult guest by how much he ignores them – and just sticks to his format. He seemed more interested in Eddie than Tamra last night.

    • Casey says:

      Totally agree with you. On Andy’s facebook there were only negative questions and comments towards Tammy and Eddie. At first he was being easy on them but then he seemed to get more agitated and the hardball questions came out. Also I was blown away when Tamra said Eddie was so nervous doing the bath scene that the crew stopped filming, brought him downstairs and gave him a few shots and started refilming. Bet Andy was pissed she said this. So it looks like this is not reality tv – it is scripted.

  75. HD says:

    “Things came to a head late last summer, when the couple didn’t speak or see one another for six weeks. Finally, during a blowout family argument back at home, Vicki handed him a letter she’d written weeks before. “I said, ‘Here, I want a divorce…I’m done.’ It was the hardest day of my life.””

    I saw this in an article online. I wonder if thse six weeks they did not see or speak to one another is the six weeks she mentioned last night?

  76. AZ Girl says:

    Just finished reading Gretchen’s blog over at Bravo. She explains her vile behavior towards Slade about his weight. She claims to be a PERSONAL TRAINER!! Um…..Gretchen please show us your certification. No professional personal trainer would say the things you said to Slade even if it was their boyfriend/girlfriend. I have been around the fitness industry for 20 years and was certified for 10 years. Nice try Gretchen. Calling you out on your BS.

    • HD says:

      A personal trainer? Okay… I have never once heard her say anything about this and you are so right no personal trainer that I know calls you names. Even the hardcore bootcamp trainers motivate you by saying you can do not shame you.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Housewives have a way of coming up with instant careers!

      • VAgirl says:

        She probably worked at the reception desk at a fitness club 20 years ago and that makes her a personal trainer now. LOL.

      • error404 says:

        Stop! You know Jill runs a multi-million$ company! She said so on WWHL so it must be true.

        • Nancy says:

          Of course she does and it’s called prostitution!

          • vilzvet says:

            Yes she does claim to have been a personal trainer. On another note, she did comment on the strange issue of NO ONE being at her parents’ 40th renewal. Gretchen says her siblings are busy working, and also that it was her parents’ own wishes to have a very private ceremony, with no one else there!

            • Maddie says:

              @vilzvet
              ((that it was her parents’ own wishes to have a very private ceremony, with no one else there!))

              Yeah a private ceremony with millions of viewers watching, no family members but strangers watching a couple we don’t know renew their marriage vows, something strange to me about that statement.

  77. error404 says:

    totally OT, but I found this interesting

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/afp/20110418/wl_uk_afp/britainreligionchristianseaster

    Ha! I just think the idea that there were two calendars widely in use would have driven me crazy! Imagine if half of us thought it was Monday, but the other half thought it was Tuesday. Me, I have trouble with spoilers and the time zone. LOL

  78. HD says:

    You know what…I just read Vicki’s blog and I had to check myself. She is right. 99.9% of the time it does take two people to fall out of love and we don’t know what happened in their marriage. They have been married for 16 years and we don’t know all the components. There has to be a reason she was wants to work like crazy and not be at home, be gone for six weeks, never invite Donn out with her, etc. I don’t know the reasons. Divorce is always hard and you never really know what goes on behnd closed doors.

    • error404 says:

      True that and I do have to give her props for not going the usual HW route of “I know, I’ll use the TV show I’m on trash my husband non stop publicly and get a better settlement. Cha-Ching!”

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        the season isnt over give her time she is exactly the type that would throw Don under the bus

    • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

      Maybe nothing that’s why they got divorced? lol
      I have not read it so I don’t know. Some men like women to be the boss. I like to be equal partners.

  79. VAgirl says:

    Yes, I keep hearing poor Donn, poor Donn. But if Vicki is such the cold-hearted witch she is portrayed to be, why does he stay and take it? Finances? He loves her so much he just can’t leave? You’re right HD. We don’t know the whole story. I, too am sick of hearing Vicki saying she works and her job is everything ad nauseum, but maybe her job is the only thing she really has going for her. I have to give her props for at least trying to save her marriage, even if it didn’t work. I think she’s going through a mid-life crisis and she’s trying to go back to her youth and she’ll eventually figure out that’s not going to work. She’s not a dumb bunny.

    • Maddie says:

      Can’t try and save your marriage if your working all the time, 15hrs per week is what you are suppose to have with your spouse if you want a healthy marriage, Donn and Vicki kids are always stating that she is never at home and Vicki herself backs this up.

      If Vicki wants to be married to her job so be it, but it will be cold comfort when she gets sick or something bad happens in her life, lets face the only 2 constants this woman has in her life are her 2 kids.

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      i dont buy it one bit
      she uses that job to go on the getaways that allow her to cheat on him and he finally saw proof of it when those pixs of her kissing some random guy hit the press

      im sure its not All one sided but she seems like a total stranger to him now with the questions she ask and not knowing his age

  80. sadtwat says:

    There is something so irritating with Tamara’s BF’s smile. His teeth aren’t that great and he has this permanent grin on his face.

    • VAgirl says:

      Isn’t that what some people call a sh#t-eating grin? LOL

    • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

      I just wanted to say your name is hysterical~I hope it’s not true. lol
      Does it mean what it appears or am I reading something into a real name?
      Hopefully it will be happytwat soon. lol If I am out of line please forgive me.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      I think he has caps- and they protrude ever so slightly which is why his lips go back in an odd way when he smiles.

      It is a very strange smile isn’t it? I think he’s such a handsome man and then he smiles, and ruins the whole look!

      • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

        He looks like he is in pain when he smiles. ;p

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        i think its caps too
        as my dentist did the same thing with my first set had them protude and not even slightly
        he couldnt understand why i was upset and i had him do them over

  81. A Cast Full of Fakers
    **************************************************************************
    BlindGossip – This reality television show’s season premiere is coming up soon. While there will be plenty of drama on the show, there are a whole lot of lies hiding behind the scenes:

    Cast member A has lost a few pounds. She will claim on camera that it is from healthier living. The truth is that she had lap-band surgery a few months ago.
    Although A claimed last season that cast member B was “just like family”, the two now have absolutely no contact with each other when the cameras aren’t rolling. Once B lost her money, A wanted nothing to do with her.
    B absolutely hates cast member C for a variety of reasons, not the least of which is that she believes that C had an affair with B’s husband.
    Cast member C’s family pretends that they are the wealthiest of all. However, their house is under water and they have a huge balloon payment (> $1 million) due in the next year that they will not be able to pay off.
    Cast member D used to work as a call girl in a major US city.
    Cast member E and her husband are going broke trying to portray themselves as wealthy people for the show. In real life, she is a hairdresser and he pumps gas.

    My guesses:

    Reality Show: RHONJ
    A: Caroline
    B: Teresa
    C: Melissa or Kathy? (new castmembers)
    D: Jacqueline???

    http://blindgossip.com/?p=27925

    E: This is a though one
