I Hate Jill Zarin Million Dollar Decorators / Housewives News

I Hate Jill Zarin    Housewives News by LynnNChicago

I’m in shock, I really am, I cannot believe that a grown woman can act this way.  Cindy Barshop of The New York housewives continues to tweet about hangergate.  On the slim chance that anyone has forgotten, Cindy accused Ramona Singer of stealing some coat hangers from her closet in Morocco.  Ramona quite simply denies it saying, “I don’t even know where your room is”.  I believe Ramona.  Both Sonja and Alex backed up Ramona insisting that none of them took Cindy’s hangers, lets also remember that Bravo’s cameras would have caught the alleged theft since they were all filmed unpacking. 

Cindy went from saying that some hangers were missing to her newest story that her clothes were left all over the floor, so now they didn’t just steal empty hangers, now she’s claiming they took her clothes off the hangers, threw them on the floor and took the hangers.  Is she serious?  Cindy has been caught lying before, she told Kelly that Sonja was planning on inviting Ramona to their toaster oven cooking party at Sonja’s house then she swore up and down that she didn’t tell Kelly that Ramona was going to be invited.  Bravo was sure to show us Cindy’s blatant lie on screen. 

Cindy must realize that she’s completely irrelevant on the show and is trying to take this little thing and blow it up into a huge controversy to get more publicity but it is only making her look absolutely ridiculous!  I think the important thing to remember here is that Cindy always looks like such a hot mess that I doubt she uses hangers anyway.

Does this woman use hangers?

Cindy actually tweeted to Eva Longoria and Denise Richards asking them whose side they are on in the hangergate situation.   Lucikly Eva was smart enough to ignore Cindy’s tweet, Denise just said, “beyond crazy”.  Denise isn’t stupid enough to choose a side or give Cindy any encouragement. 

CindyBarshop   Hey @EvaLongoria ! Learned so much from @RallyForKids Im not sure if you follow, but if so whose side are you on regarding #hangergate ? :)
 
CindyBarshop   Hi @DENISE_RICHARDS Hope u had a gr8 wknd. Need the truth- what did you think about #hangergate ?

Congratulations Cindy, you did something stupid enough to warrant an entire entry on the blog.  I imagine you feel justified now.

Congratulations to Kim Zolciak of The Real Housewives of Atlanta on the birth of her son named after her baby daddy, Kim tweeted: 

@Kimzolciak @biermann71 and I are happy to announce the birth of our son today Kroy Jagger Biermann is healthy & beautiful We are so in love!
 

I’m sure that Bravo’s cameras were on hand to catch every special moment of the birth.  If I am counting correctly this will be Bravo’s fourth housewife to give birth on camera.  Jacqueline was the first in Jersey, then Teresa, Bethenny and now Kim Zolciak. 

Congratulations too to Bravo for growing their housewives clan.

Million Dollar Decorators by Quincy IL

Bravo introduces a new show called, “Million Dollar Decorators.”  Bravo will follow five high end LA decorators around in their “docu-series.” The decorators are Nathan Turner, Jeffrey Alan Marks, Mary McDonald, Kathryn Ireland and Martin Lawrence Ballard.

We find Mary in her office with giant red doors.   When she was 20 years old she has a grand piano and oil paintings taken from her mother’s home in her apartment.  She can spend $5 million decorating a home.  Her male assistant brings her 4 dogs on one leash into the office and releases them. They run all over causing Mary distress, but she sees they are thirsty and gets them water.

Martin is on his phone. He went to LA to become a star and he became a star interior decorator to the stars.  He has many famous clients like Elton John, Cher and Sharon Osbourne. Jim and Laura are his assistants.

Martin thinks he has 2 weeks to create a Hollywood apartment for Sharon Osbourne. He decorated her Malibu home and has done other homes for her so he knows her style, but she has requested modern this time.  Sharon is going to be on a new show and she will want to move in when the show begins.

Kathryn has a line of fabrics and rich clients.  She loves food, sex and decorating in that order. She is the mother of 3 sons: 21, 18, and 17.  The boys have a father who is divorced from their mother and who is a good parent, but no one listens to Kathryn who calls herself a tragic mother.

Mary has a client Kendra who wants to put a grand piano in her house.   Mary doesn’t want the piano, but Kendra’s husband does.  Mary doesn’t care. Kendra shows Mary a guest house and Mary begins to get ideas about how to decorate it to make it go with the main house. Mary says, “Kendra’s house is my house.” 

Martin receives a call from Sharon Osbourne. She needs to move in after 3 days, not 2 weeks. Martin tells her everything is under control, but it is not. The painters have just started. The dark wood floors are not dry. The dining room chairs are not made.  The sofas are done and he has to buy art and decorations. It’s a major disaster according to Martin.

Nathan is from California and was” born and raised privileged.”  When he was 19, he worked for an antique dealer and found his passion.  His mother was not surprised and she noted that she knew he would love shopping on a big scale on someone else’s money.

The heart of Nathan’s business is his high end store. He travels the world looking for items that others will buy and use in their projects.

Jeffrey likes to decorate a room and then add one thing that no one would expect; he has a rowboat with oars on the ceiling of his living room. Jeffrey’s life partner and assistant is Ross Cassidy, a former model and designer from South Africa.  They have a female white lab and she takes showers outside. 

The designers are friends.  The character Karen of “Will and Grace” is based on Mary who is rich and funny. 

Martin is dealing with painters and moving furniture into the unfinished Osbourne apartment with a million dollar view.  There are only 3 painters working and their employer thought he had one week to finish. Tomorrow 10 painters will be on the job. If they don’t finish, Martin will not hire them again.

In addition to Ross, Jeffrey has two assistants called Demetre and Dimitre @. They all are working on a restaurant with a nautical theme which Ross says is difficult to accomplish without a parrot and an eye patch effect.

Martin welcomes Sharon Osbourne into her new apartment and she loves it. He purchased a photo of the Beetles for $30,000 because he knows that Ozzie loves the Beetles and it goes with the color scheme. He spends $25,000 on a rug because rugs elevate a room. The leather chairs will be distressed and the bedding black on white sheets.  He finds a zebra rug and that is perfect too.

Kathryn is throwing her own birthday party and her sons are going to cook.  She invited 12 people.  She knows there will be a cake brought by her friend and is not worried about the rest of the dinner.

Mary goes to Kendra’s house because Kendra needs to talk.  Kendra tells Mary that they will finish the guest house, but she is getting a divorce and has to sell the house. The realtor would like the house to be more neutral, but Mary ignores that request.  Mary cares more about the sale of the house than Kendra’s marriage ending.

Kathryn’s French house manager does not know anything about wine except how to drink it and she does not listen to Kathryn. The party will begin at 7 PM, but Kathryn is having a hard time getting ready. Her boys are in the kitchen chopping and dropping chips then putting them back in a bowl.  They are to cook expensive steaks, but they did not clean the grill first. One on leaves and Kathryn does not want him to go.

In Nathan’s store, his assistant Tyler helps him find a piece of cloth from Kathryn’s collection. Nathan puts the cloth over his black lab and the dog runs all over with it on.

Christopher, an antique dealer, arrives for Kathryn’s birthday party as she is setting sunflowers on a French country table setting. Everyone is enjoying drinks and guacamole with homemade chips while Kathryn makes a late appearance.  Mary tried to give Kathryn a gift.  There is a cake with the torso of a woman with the cloth from Kathryn’s line of fabric that was worn by the black lab in Nathan’s store.  The guests don’t know the history of the food so they have a wonderful time.

    How could you forget Phaedra’s birth scene. It was priceless LOL!

  2. okeydoekey says:

    Thanks for the blog. Cindy is a waste of time. Sonja tweeted Cindy is just nervous filming. Cindy is the worst dressed housewives beating Kelly. Homeless Chic. Eww

    People tweeted they loved Million Dollar Decorators. I didn’t find it interesting. I can spend your 5 million and make your house look good too. I’m more interested in the shows that decorate with little money and make big changes. All this over the top living is fakes as the Giudices. I think the house they decorated for Sharon is the one she’s forced to sell for back taxes.

    • quincyil says:

      Interesting about Sharon.

      I noticed the Jeff Lewis dark floors and cream walls.

      My house if full of gifts from Middle Eastern relatives and I had not choice in the design. Everything came without any input from me. It’s not my favorite colors and I am forced to have off white walls because all Iranian houses have off white walls.

      I once had a tiny green bathroom. Every time he caught a glimpse of that green, he would complain. So once he complained and I immediately painted it white. I was about to have a 10 1/2 lb baby boy and I was in a bad mood that day. You should have seen how upset the complainer got. ROTFL

      • FLG says:

        Wow, further evidence as to why you are THE Empress!!!!ROFL

        • quincyil says:

          LOL. I, like Alex McCord, have a long fuse, but when it ignites….BOOOOOOOM…

          • FLG says:

            I think we are fraternal twins, separated at birth and just don’t know it. Oh hell, who am I kidding, I just want the Emperor title……I would have enjoyed being with you at the Sedgwick County Zoo. I would have found you a nice damp towel for you to clean up the camel spit.

            • quincyil says:

              I tried, but whatever that black stuff was, it wasn’t coming out.

              Traveling with Middle Eastern people is always an adventure. They won’t let you call to confirm your reservations when they take you off the beaten path and you might have to drive 200 miles more with crying children to find a inn for the night.

              You have to be strong to be an Empress.

              Q

              • FLG says:

                That sounds a lot like travelling with Hubs. He’s one of those fellows who is genetically incapable of asking for directions or anything else. I got so mad at him in Costa Rica I told him if he uttered one word to me for the next 24 hours I was going back to the states and leave him to fend for himself. We were in the Osa at the time. He’s monolingual English only. I’m the multi-lingual one. I guess he knew I meant business, because I didn’t hear a peep out of him, but he somehow managed to deliver coffee and meals to me. I think he would have used a silver platter if he could have found one. Now that several years have passed, we can finally laugh about it. He admitted he knew not to push another button.

                • quincyil says:

                  If there is a correct diretion and it’s opposite, my guy will take the opposite. We use GPS now.

                  He drives like a taxi cab driver also.

                  Once a driver in Tehran…always a terrible driver.

          • Mookies1mom says:

            I’m the same way too! That fuse may burn for a long time but watch out when it finally gets to the end.

      • NJBev says:

        LMAO. that’s so funny, Q.

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      some one should kindly firect her to the poll LOL
      I didnt see the newest decorating show but i think i would enjoy it
      its got to be better then Platinum Sh!t

      LOL

  3. WindyCityWondering says:

    What is with Bravo and the word Million? Million Dollar Listing, Million Dollar Decorators and the Millionaire Matchmaker….

    • error404 says:

      @BravoAndy is trapped in 2002. He actually thinks the post-economic collapse viewing public wants to see pseudo-rich people burn wads of cash to light their cigars as they drive their SUVs up to their McMansions. It’s so dated and out of touch, I’m worried for Bravo.

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        well truth be told havent you noticed that others do complain that some of the h/w’s arent rich enough
        people used to watch some of these shows for escape

    • quincyil says:

      Bravo has a formula for formula shows.

      This show has a huge cast. There are the decorators, then each of them have staff at home and in their businesses. They all interact.

      Nathan’s store seems to be at the center, but Mary also has a store with her textile designs.

      I don’t know why I thought they all had English accents, but even the guy born and raised in California seems to have an English accent.

      • Kansas Girl says:

        Just so you know you’re not the only one, you’re not the only one! I finally decided that it’s not English — that they have a “bored” or “beyond-it-all” accent that now I want to copy in daily life. I just think it would be fun to talk that way.

        • FLG says:

          Just keep Daaahling out of your new vocabulary. Countess Squash Blossom High Horse has taught us all how irritating that word can be! Darlin’ is still currently acceptable to my knowledge.

          • DJ Loops Fruit says:

            FLG
            Oh Tallulah would roll over in her grave
            Countless has ruined it for some but if you add a southern drawl you can still get away with it

            just think back to when Lucy did it

            “Tropicana.hello Darling id like one of those darling little tables….”

            “Id be perfectly happy to tell you who i am if i knew who that was,who am i darling”

            LOL

            ps there is a tornado watch for my area so if you dont hear from me tommorow i may possiably be in Oz after all i AM a friend of Dorothys LOL

        • alicia says:

          My favorite line from a french designer was “It’s not possible”. Imagine with an accent. I use it now when I don’t want to do something- it’s a good way to say “no”.

  4. FLG says:

    I would like to do a show showing what I could do with thrift store purchases and make a place look like a model home. During the height of the real estate craze in Florida, I was living in an apartment building that was supposed to undergo a condo conversion. I wasn’t interested in buying as the asking price was way too high, even at the time. I was in probably the nicest apartment in the building (location within the building, and view-wise) and it was shown many times. I decorated that entire apartment for less than $2000.00 including all furniture, area rugs, wall hangings, sheets and duvets, a huge aquarium, small kitchen appliances and wall art. All of the potential buyers thought that it was a staged model home. It was a two bedroom two bath apartment. It’s amazing the deals you can find. It was my first land based home after living on a boat for many years. Luckily for the real estate buying public, the building never went condo and 150 (it was a big building) potential buyers didn’t end up with upside down mortgages.

    • quincyil says:

      Your wish has come true. We are going to blog 9 by Design from HGTV.
      You would be amazed what that family can find.

    • butterisafruit says:

      That sounds beautiful and peaceful. I agree with everything you say. You can work on a budget without compromising.

      • quincyil says:

        I sometimes Jeff Lewisize my kitchen. I have completely clean white Silestone counter that glisten in the morning sun. I like everything sparkling and empty. Jeff and I should be best friends.

        • Kansas Girl says:

          I used to be friends with a woman who bragged she’s a minimalist. I guess that makes me a maximalist. Small house, not much storage, a lot of stuff.

    • T-REX says:

      FLG, For that kind of money can you travel across the state and help me out with my abysmal decorating skills?

      • FLG says:

        As long as you have good thrift stores in the area, take your time and it is amazing the wonderful items you can find. I’ve found some really expensive items that I guess they didn’t know what they were and I paid pennies for. Some of my sheets, Ramona would be willing to sleep on! I’ll pay $20.00 for a $600.00 set of sheets!

  5. AZ Girl says:

    Well I just might cancel my subscription to Wall Street Journal…

    Check out the WSJ today. Great spread on our Summer Kickoff with @CountessLuAnn @LanceBass and @Jillzarin! http://t.co/qfwngky

    The last paragraph they mention that Jill is a “television star” and knows all there is to know about frozen yogurt…WTF? How profound. Jill can talk to you all night about frozen yogurt.

    • FLG says:

      I think Jill should consider giving Ginger some of that yogurt. Maybe mix it with some rice and she’ll save a fortune in carpet cleaning.

      • FLG says:

        Oh, and feed some of that yogurt to Gloria. Maybe Mother WOULD be happy for a couple of minutes.

    • plainviewsue says:

      I can top that. Teresa is on Ellen’s show today and she is called an actress!!

      • FLG says:

        pass me the smelling salts….that gave me the vapors…

        • Stella says:

          LOL. Glad to see you back and feeling better. I was looking for your comments and look forward to reading what you have to say. Often I have to read this blog at work and when I read your comments I’ll start laughing out loud which for my co-workers seem out of the blue. They probably think I’m a looney tune. But I’ll gladly take that rep to be able to read your stuff.

      • Kansas Girl says:

        She is! A really BAD actress.

    • error404 says:

      “I could talk about yogurt all night,”

      OMG! I knew Jill was a nightmare, but I didn’t realize it was this bad! Can you imagine some dingbat bending your ear about yogurt all night!?! You’d commit suicide just to make it stop! As if s4 RHNY hadn’t already labeled her “deathly dull!”.

    • Pantry Viewer says:

      Good Lord. B gets the cover of Forbes, so Jill and LuMann run to the Wall Street Journal to try and get some press? HOW EMBARRASSING! Will they never stop trying to compete? Makes them look so silly and desperate. Losers.

    • AZ Girl says:

      Just looked through todays WSJ and no article on Hamptons or HW. Probably will be in Fridays weekend section. I will look for it there. I am tempted to write to the editor. There are so many other “A” listers they could have written about other than the HWONY imho.

      • FLG says:

        I’d love for you to get them to do an interview with Andy Hilfiger so he could give us all of the dirt on Countess SBHH’s performance at Todd Rome’s wedding back in 2008. I know it’s not new news, but it would be good soil to freshly till. We could get good tips on how to keep LuAnn from ripping microphones out of your hands, and maybe how to keep her paws off of people’s crotches. Plus we could knock LuAnn off of her “Ramona’s a drunk” pedestal.

        • FLG says:

          We could title that episode “Pot meets Kettle”.

        • nathania says:

          wow, I didn’t realize it was only three years ago. hmmm…

          she’s managed to get ‘control’ somehow…probably has a cabinent full of mood-leveling pills

  6. nic says:

    You forgot 1 more choice for the poll (and most likely scenario): The ‘help’ stole the hangers!! LOL

    Congrats to Kim- I kind of hope she gets her own show. I’d watch that hot mess any day. She can pull off stupid and be somewhat entertaining, unlike other hw’s we know, but don’t necessarily love (ahem Kelly, Teresa, etc).

    • FLG says:

      I wanted to see Countess Squash Blossom High Horse’s name on the poll. She’s the one who showed up with an armful of hangers.

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      LOL i would never watch anything that starred that witch
      i do think if she had ,had another daughter she could have named it
      Wiglette LOL

    • nathania says:

      unlikely.

      one of my favorite poets, Chrystos, worked as a maid and she has a great poem about how if she steals anything from a client it’s not going to be less than 200,000 in cash.

  7. Laura says:

    I just took a survey online…all about Bethenny and Bethenny Ever After. Asking all kinds of questions about the show, them personally, what I like, don’t like about the show, will I watch if they move to LA…do I think Bethenny is too mean, is Jason too passive? Am I glad they fired Max lol…..I believe I signed up for this through bravotv.com, their Contemporary Consumers surveys…I get surveys about once a week about all the different NBC owned/affiliated programming they have….

    I’d like to think its a contributing factor to Bethenny et al being so successful LOL

    Be back later, have to get kids from exams! Schools out for the summer!

    • nathania says:

      wow so that means that the demographic of people who answer online surveys are the people who are dictating what happens on Bravo shows?

      interesting food for thought.

  8. plainviewsue says:

    I had tweeted Cindy regarding that ridiculous tweet to celebs about hanger gate. Surprisingly enough, she answered and said thanks, I think you may be correct. So maybe she is learning from her ridiculous behavior? Here are the tweets……

  9. vilzvet says:

    Teresa is doing a book signing this Thursday here at the same place that Bethenny did a couple of months ago. NOT GOING, needless to say. I hate to pass up a board report but I don’t think I could handle seeing what passes for her fans on the line. Maybe someone else could take the bullet. How about it, plainviewsue?! I don’t have the stomach.

  10. quincyil says:

    Cindy was trying to make use the hanger issue to make herself relevant. She knows she can easily be dropped that is why she threw those parties and took the brunettes to the spa.

    Cindy is OK, but she is not a Bethenny replacement. I never laugh when she makes comments because they aren’t funny.

  11. jeepers1941 says:

    I don’t know how the rest of the west coast public feels about this, but here is my 2 cents worth on the book signing tours.
    I feel like the ugly, bad step-child who was sent to bed without my dinner. I mean do these people ever come out here and do book signing tours? We watch the shows and by the books, so what gives? Now I am going to go eat my poorage(sp?) and pout just a little……… :(

    • vilzvet says:

      Where exactly are you on the West Coast? I guess they are only doing the bigger cities like LA? We get at least 3 big authors a week here on Long Island, and they always go to the same couple of bookstores.

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Uh…try living in the heartland if you want to be ignored!

      • quincyil says:

        We are lucky if our little bookstore carries a book. They would like you to preorder and prepay, but amazon is cheaper if you are going to order and amazon takes it to your door without another trip to the bookstore.

          I think it would be really fun! A friend of mine’s dad used to be good friends with Russell Stover, and whenever he came over the house (they played bridge once a week IIRC) he would bring boxes of chocolates. That made me so jealous! lol

          • MoJen says:

            Mmmm. Russell Stover’s French Mints. I remember walking around The Plaza when I was a kid just dying for my Grandma to take me to the Russell Stover’s store!

        Yes I think Vicki wrote a book and HD got to meet her, if I’m not wrong, and that was not on the West Coast.

          • HD says:

            She did. She had it at a very upscale salon here. No one ever really comes here though unless it is KY Derby.

  12. Cheri says:

    I feel the same

  13. jeepers1941 says:

    I think Mr. C is making all these shows to competetive. So one has to out do the other. Hence all the back stabbing, and I’ll show her attitudes. And with most of these women trying to “bring home the bacon” nowadays, I can sort of understand why they feel they must out-shine the other person. For example, T & joey is a sibbling thing, but then joey is jealous of the relationship of JJ amd joey’s father, when joey as the son feels he is no longer loved by his parents. This then started the war between he and T. T got the gig on the NJ show, and so it was yet another stab at joey & mels egos. Bethenny got her own show thus started the war for jz. jz felt if anyone should have a show first, it should have been her. But she would have left Bethenny in the dust and never shed a tear about it either. Had she not been so evil, she would have been with Bethenny, simply because Bethenny was a loyal friend. Then Alex got into some modeling gigs and all of a sudden she was the competetion for jz. Ramona has so many things going on too and doesn’t take a back seat to anyone, so therefore she has to be stopped at any costs. She has been made fun of, she has been labled as being rude, cruel and now her reputation is being tarnished as being a drunk. The lists keeps growing and will continue as long as these shows keep appearing, do in part because not everyone wan’ts to hear about hearts and flowers, but mainly people want to see blood and guts. Sorry if that hurt or offended anyone, but it is just plain human nature and we have all been guilty of this!

    • error404 says:

      I don’t think the rivalry between the shows is that bad. I do think Bravo does encourage them to bring the drama if they want to keep their apple/peach/diamond/highway exit or whatever it is that the NJ women hold… but I think the specifics is all down to them, the housewives. Tamra chooses to trash her marriage/husband on tv. Lulu did not. Teressa and Joe choose to air their family’s dirty laundry on tv. Caro and Dina did not. Jill chooses to destroy people she is jealous of, Camille does not. etc…

      • jeepers1941 says:

        error
        I think the examples you have given, comes down to the haves and the have nots, IMHO. Those that have could care less, but the ones that don’t have are struggling to get there, by hook or by crook. Kind of like, “I am up here, and you are down there” if you get my drift. As in it’s us against them so to speak. But that is just my take on it. Or as is often said on this board, we agree to disagree………… :)

    I think what Cindy should do to “try” and save face is claim that her twitter was hacked into like the celebrities do….no??

  15. MickeyMouth says:

    I felt a twinge of sympathy for Teresa today. I heard a radio appearance announcement for her. http://www.clementonpark.com/pages/events.html

    Who wants to go to hot amusement park for pictures and autographs? Not fabulous. Maybe the kids were given free ride tickets.

    • Lavalady says:

      Mickey – I just clicked on your name to see if you had any new chops. OMG they are soooo good. Love every one of them.

  16. Logan says:

    Does tweeting to Denise Richards and Eva Longoria make her feel special? Cindy really needs to know her place and it’s not on the A list.

    • Pantry Viewer says:

      So embarrassing. They’re all such fools. Blech.

    • jeang says:

      By trying to tweet a list celebs, she is obviously in the Krazy class of PR101. Hell she might as well google Lady Gaga like Krazy did, or better yet George Clooney. I mean if you are going to make a fool of yourself, go for broke, stupid bucky beaver baglady.

    • FLG says:

      Did she actually get a reply back for either Eva or Denise? I’m still not running on all cylinders, so apologies in advance if that has been answered already.

  17. Angel says:

    I watched Million Dollar Decorators last night as well. Except for the row boat hanging from the ceiling I could have bought all of the items from Homegoods, spent a LOT less money and had beautiful rooms. My husband and I furnished our condo from Homegoods, it came out so beautiful my sister and brother in law asked us to help them with their townhouse.

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      ITA Those “prints” at 30k could have been reproduced for under $300 with a lovely frame. In my neck of FLA, a print is a poster or pic that can be dressed up with framing. It’s not that serious folks. I was a fan of the HGTV show that copied expensive rooms called Sensible Chic. It can be done.

      As for Kathryn Ireland, she doesn’t get out of bed for less than a million, yet refused to hire caterers for her soiree? How cheap and gauche! Imagine the disgust of those designers once they saw the “uncleansey” manner in which the guacamole and chips were made! UGGGHH I screamed in horror when that boy didn’t wash his hands and the other picked food off the floor.

      Besides that kitchen nightmare I loved the show as I am a design freak! LOL I will look forward to watching this show.

      • quincyil says:

        This microbiologist agrees with you.

      • @home says:

        She looked kind of sloppy herself. I was surprised. And it was definitely gross watching her sons prepare the chips and guacamole.

      • alicia says:

        You also can get a” glecay”,(not sure of correct spelling.)It is an original reproduced on canvas that looks like a real painting. My husband had several exotic and antique car paintings reproduced for our family room, they were pictures featured in a magazine. My p.studio did the on their machine, you just can’t try to sell them- it would be an infringement on the artist who originally painted them.

        • Brigid says:

          Hate to but in but it’s infringement anyway. It doesn’t matter if you try to sell it or not. Reproducing art you don’t have the rights to is copyright infringement. If the images were older images though and in the public domain then he’s totally okay reproducing them for private use. As to the kind of print you are talking about – it’s a giclee’ – it’s a type of printing, can be on canvas or paper. Either one. Just my .02 :)

  18. V-NY says:

    @ Vilzvet!! Teresa will be in H-town! That is my favorite LI town, and I do love that bookstore in town. I may go…just because I missed out on ‘Mona-she was in my town last week at the local liquor store. I was upset that I didn’t know about it until the next day!.

    • vilzvet says:

      Hi Vin, I did meet Ramona at the Smithtown wine signing a couple of weeks ago, it was great to see her, is that the signing you were referring to? I don’t think she went anywhere else around here. Teresa should have a huge crowd, although I doubt as big as Bethenny’s, and there is just no way I would put myself through the hassle. You should go! We need a report.

      • V-NY says:

        Ramona was here in W.I. at Union Wine and Liquors last Thursday. It would have been a 2 minute drive!! oy vey! Since I don’t have twitter anymore, I am usually out of the loop with all of the HW events. I would have loved to meet a housewife :(.
        I am asking my sister if she wants to go with me because she is a Teresa Fan. If it starts at 7, I think I should be in H-town my 6 the latest. I want to be in and out. Also, this would be my first book event! The only thing I don’t like about that bookstore is that I would have to park at the main parking lot in town and then walk a few blocks or more to the bookstore. I’ll see what I can do to pay T a visit.
        ttyl Vilzvet…keep cool!

        • Kansas Girl says:

          Hey, Vin, if you “like” them on Facebook, they usually post where they’ll be. It’s one way to keep up.

          • V-NY says:

            that’s true. If only my FB lets me log in!!!!! lol
            I think T blocked me though..last year I cursed her out after she blocked me on twitter. I was blocked on her twitter because I cursed her out there too. These housewives can’t take a cussin?? lol.

            • Rabble Rouser says:

              Did you cuss her out in Italian or English?

              • V-NY says:

                I cursed her out in Italian and she did not reply. lol. I don’t think she’ll remember me If I go and see her 2mrw.

            • Kansas Girl says:

              She still comes up on your FB profile, so you may not be blocked.

              I see people posting that they miss you and suggesting you start a new account. Is FB trying to fix the problem?

              • V-NY says:

                I don’t know how to contact them. I don’t even fully understand my problem with FB. They won’t let me change my password..and I have to log on like a 100 times just to see the top menu. It’s really weird. I’ve had my fb since I graduated HS in 2005-so I refuse to make a new one. Good thing T never blocked me on FB lol!

                • V-NY says:

                  ohh. on FB they can block u from commenting on their page. I remember bc even Jill had me blocked from posting comments on her page.

                • Kansas Girl says:

                  I’ll see later (tomorrow) if I can find the contact for FB. A cousin had her page stolen and she got them to retrieve stuff for her. They don’t talk to you, but will sometimes investigate things you report and solve problems. If I can figure it out, I’ll email the acct you have posted on FB.

  19. Rhetorica says:

    Regarding Barslop: don’t these women realize Twitter is public? If she really wanted the truth, how about a private email?
    M$M ok. I think I’m tiring if Bravo. When I began watched it last year, it was unique . Now same old things.

  20. Butters'Mom says:

    Butters’Dad and I discussed last night who would we donate $ 2500
    To charity for the pleasure of having dinner with. Certainly NOT jz. After much back and forth we decided on Cornell West. What would the board members choices be? Both HW and non HW? For HW if forced to choose I would pick Lisa of BH.

    • 2Stupid says:

      I would pay 2500 to have dinner with Sonja and Ramonational. Those girls know how to have a good time. If I was really wanting to learn, probably Bethenny or Lisa, but for the Fun factor definitely Ramona. All the people I know who watch RHNY don’t care for Ramona, but she has always been one of my favorites. It is almost like she in IN on the joke.

      • katlg says:

        2Stupid,
        I agree, Ramona has always been in on the joke.
        We all know, ( I think), that Ramona is pitching her wine and that seems to be all Bravo is showing.
        She is making the effort to listen when the others speak and make a correct response, that they do not show her the same courtesy, well not her fault.
        That R. is menopausal, well let’s face it all females go thru puberty and menopause so Kelly, Jill and LuLu, well maybe not Kelly, get ready.
        I can only hope when it is your turn, your friends will be as kind to you as you are to Ramona.
        BTW, been there, done that, life does indeed go forward and is GREAT, extra 15lbs I can’t loose and all, personally I think that extra weight helps keep the wrinkles at bay and this is spoken by someone who went thru an early menopause.

    • Golden Girl says:

      I would choose B for sure 2nd would be Romona.

    • Mimisfbay says:

      Wow, now that would be a dinner worth attending and scraping up the money for. If you had both Cornel West and Bill Maher you probably couldn’t eat or sleep for a week. Just thinking about this one makes my mind reel.

      I wouldn’t pay .02 to dine with JZ. Frankly none of the housewives inspire awe or even interest.

  21. Butters'Mom says:

    2stupid Ramona would be fun and you just know she’d fill you in on all the backstage gossip!

  22. A tweet from Jill:

    Jillzarin: Don’t forget to sign up for my newsletter at jillzarin.com I will be answering certain accusations made about me recently.

    There have been a few “accusations”. I wonder which ones she will address. Did she pose as her own fan? Did she leak gossip to Radaronline? Where does the money from the Zarin Family Trust go? Those are the only “accusations” that I can think of right now. LOL

    • Pantry Viewer says:

      That she’s scripting Ramona’s demise and doing a bad job of acting, while doing it? I bet the list could go on and on…

    • error404 says:

      - she’s a recovering alcoholic?
      – her marriage is in trouble?
      – her squeezemeelmo girdle line is in trouble?
      – she used her DIL to gain sympathy for herself?
      – she told the fortune teller what to say to Ramoner?
      the lsit could go on and on…

      • Wow! I forgot about those “accusations”.

        • Rabble Rouser says:

          It doesn’t really matter what they are, her reply will be the same. ‘It wasn’t me’…she wouldn’t even fess up to Amazon-gate .

      • aquamarinecandy-o83 says:

        ….and that’s just from this season. What about last season, Susan Saunders?

      • Nancy says:

        -she got a face lift?
        -she prostituted her step daughter for sympathy?
        -she prostituted her dog for sympathy?
        -she really isn’t a size 0?
        -Who Lisa really is?
        -she lied to Bethenny about Bobby “major” surgery?
        tntc (to numerous to count)

    • Adgirl says:

      Didn’t the fotune teller accuse Jill of having a “Big Heart”? I think we debunked that already.

    • lillybee says:

      I hope that someone here bites the bullet and will let us know what she says.

    • FLG says:

      My bets are on the Zarin Family Trust issue. I hope she will provide some EIN numbers to go along with it. I also think she won’t actually say whether it is a charitable remainder trust or a grantor trust. She’ll just say that it has been set up with New York Community Trust. New York Community Trust does charge fees for administering trusts. I’ll be interested to see what she has to say. Also, charitybuzz is a FOR PROFIT organization.

      • Stella says:

        I told my friend who doesn’t watch this show about this and he said that Jill has quite the ego to tell someone “for the privilege of dining with me I’ll let you pay for dinner and put money in my family’s trust.” He said that if the dinner were going to be on camera it is too bad you can’t win the dinner, write a check, stop payment on it, stand her up at the restaurant, then when she calls presumably on speakerphone you say “have dinner with that bi&@$, I don’t think so” and hang up. Of course you can’t do that but it’d be funny.

    Cindy’s hangers weren’t missing they ran from her clothes!

    **CHERI**
    Hi, Just left you a thread, I am in Parkland

  25. Adgirl says:

    I had to change the channel on Million Dollar Decorators after Martyn (did he change the spelling of his name?) kept making those squinchy Mary Pickford cutsie faces. Errg.

    Cindy Barshops twitters – I think Jill encouraged her to do this and it backfired. LOL.

    • error404 says:

      LOL me too! as soon as I saw Cynthia’s first tweet, I immediately thought “oh, Jill is behind this!” lol

      I still think if Kiki’s breakdance, breakout, breakfront, whatever she is currently calling her breakdown can to blamed on any one person, it was Jill filling her head with all sorts of paranoid nonsense everyday on the phone.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Ramona said that Kelly seemed more agitated after she spoke with Jill and that Ramona suggested she didn’t speak with Jill so much. So I definately can see Jill mind bending Kelly.

        • Adgirl says:

          Totally true. Kelly trusts Jill as a mommy figure and was completely upset on SI after talking with Jill. Kelly is a follower.

      • FLG says:

        Jill always tries (usually successfully) to get someone else to do her dirty work for her. That you can take to the bank!

  26. @home says:

    I don’t like the name Kroy. Why didn’t they just name him Troy?

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I thought he was named after his daddy so that daddy wouldn’t forget him!

  27. Nancy says:

    Jill’s “accusations” …
    Did she really have an affair while married to Bobby?
    Did she call Simon’s work place to get him fired?
    Why she got rid of Brad (her gay husband)?
    Why she didn’t speak to her sister Lisa for a very long time?
    She really didn’t go to Medical School, Dental School, Everything School?

    I can hardly wait.

    • Kukulet says:

      Yep. She’ll say that all the monies from the ZFT do go to charity-but she will offer absolutely no evidence to back that up, and she won’t name the specific charities. Betcha.

      • Golden Girl says:

        I agree Kukulet. It wont be her answering though, it will be an answer that a large group of her flunkies came up with. Spin, spin, spin.

  28. jeepers1941 says:

    Would someone please tell me why does jz keep asking people to sign up for her newsletter?

    • I think she has a low number of suscribers to her newsletter and she is desperate.

      • FLG says:

        When she was trying to get Ally’s twitter followers up, I was wondering if they were trying to come up with enough followers so they could “sell” her twitter followers. I don’t have a twitter account and don’t know that much about it, but for some reason you can “buy” twitter followers. You have to pay a monthly fee. There has to be a financial reason. I listened to Sister Lisa the Unspoken To’s radio show a few times and anytime she has an internet geek/guru on her show the conversation ALWAYS turns to how the guest makes money off of the internet.

    • MsJxn says:

      Because No one wants to!! Please Please Please,…..I don’t remember saying that,…show me the video,…….”Just because you say it, does not make it true!..are the….only words she should remember”,…and as usual,…not original to her!! she is such a flippin’ rediculous whiny cheap-arsed imitation of a person!! LMBO!!!

        Sorry, my punctuation is way off,..new puppy, and trying to teach a bored 9 y/o to walk him,….distractions all around!! Hahah!!

    • MickeyMouth says:

      I think she is trying to expand her fan base from paid employees and 12 year old girls.

  29. jeepers1941 says:

    I mean, does she get $$$ for each person who signs up?
    Does she run ads in it?
    I wouldn’t subscribe to anything she has a hand in.
    Besides if she has input to it, which I am sure she does, it would all be lies!
    She must really think she is a special person.
    I get Bethenny’s newsletter, but at least it is filled with lots of stuff, like recipes, etc.
    Being down right sick to my stomach, just when I see her pic or hear her voice is bad enough, but to purposely subscribe to her newsletter is a really ugly thought, yuck!

  30. Kukulet says:

    Jill is going to answer accusations. Mm-kay. Snort. Chortle. Guffaw.

    Just coz you say it, Jill, it don’t make it true. Ain’t that your favorite line, baby?

    Romana is supposed to sell her wine between 5-8. Where she is a Tornado is expected in an hour. I tweeted her, I TOLD her, and she never responded. She never listens to me.

      Butter where exactly is that ???
      this is really scary we have a watch for our area
      i dont think NJ ever had one before

      • dsc60 says:

        we had one in sussex county last year. an F2. it’s very rural up here so luckily it only did damage to a barn. they do occur, but nothing like you see in tornado alley. my heart goes out to all those effected so badly this year.

    • 2Stupid says:

      Stay Safe! Surely Ramona’s organizers will notify her if there is a safety threat due to weather. I think most people are taking these threats more seriously now.

    • FlowerPower says:

      We’re in the tornado warning area. At one point all the hairs on my arm stood straight up. Very weird feeling. Then it passed. We haven’t really had much rain or anything. Just thunder.

      • error404 says:

        it’s just getting a little windy here. the last “tornado” we had, some trees did fall. but compared to put west, NY tornadoes are like child’s play.

        • FlowerPower says:

          I was really surprised to see the damage in Springfield. We’ve had tornado warnings before, but, yeah, nothing like what tornado alley experiences.

          Having so many spotted here is really unusual though.

    • FLG says:

      Good Luck Butter! I’m sending safety thoughts your way!

  32. Jill tweeted that “haters” are helping to promote her brand. She is going to entertain me on Twitter today. LOL

    This is what her fan Annie tweeter to her:

    anniexoxx: @Jillzarin it does promote your brand and make you more well-known. they can keep talking bc they are making you famous haha

    Jill’s response:

    @Jillzarin said: Bingo! I have a million more google searches for Jill Zarin because of haters . I get paid based on it. Hah!

    If Jill gets paid every time we mention her name on this blog, she should be very happy that this blog exists. LOL

    • Kukulet says:

      Jill has a brand? Snort. Chortle. Guffaw.

      She is such a liar. a) a MILLION more Google searches? Sorry, Jillsie, no way. b) No one gets paid for Google searches for their own name. They get paid if they include Google AdSense on their own websites and people click on the ads-and it’s pennies per click.

      She likes being famous for being hated? Wow. Then why does she spaz out every time anyone says anything remotely negative about her? Just sit at home and rake in the dough, Jill baby. In a couple of years, you’ll be able to afford a Snickers bar all on your own.

      What a loser.

    • 2Stupid says:

      What brand? Jill is most known for being a pathological liar and borderline sociopath. I mean she wants to ruin people, and devestate their chances for earning a living. She goes way beyond petty backstabbing and gossiping. She is really trying to ruin Ramona’s reputation, and wanted Bethennys’ show to be a failure. That is not NORMAL behavior!!!!

    • Golden Girl says:

      She is truly delusional its sick.

    • FLG says:

      Well, if she is right and I don’t believe a word that comes out of her mouth, everyone should google Countess Squash Blossom High Horse and Miss Muff Mower. They come up on google now and lead to Lynn’s blog. Maybe we can make Lynn some money and show our appreciation for her and the Empress’s hard work.

    a tornado hit Mass.

        thankfully it never touched here in NJ not so good for Mass & Cali which both got hit
        Error i dont think NJ or at least my area in NJ ever had a tornado before this year
        Jimmy showed me a couple of docs he recorded that showed just how bad the weather has changed this year alone

        they were saying the last 10 years have been the worst so far and the ten before that just slightly less so
        we have trully wrecked this planet
        they said its a vicious circle that is irreversabel and it will get worse each year

  38. FlowerPower says:

    Was going to try to go to Ramona’s event tonight, but would have had to drive along the tornado warning route, so no go. The news is showing video of the tornado that touched down in Springfield. Yikes.

    So far, still nothing where we are (north of Worcester).

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      Thank goodness you were spared

      somewhere in Cali got hit with one as well

    Weird story- Today I start talking to a friend/colleague at the hospital I work at about RHNJ whIle waiting for patients to come through (I’m a Physician’s Assistant) and this teenage summer volunteer boy butts in and starts telling us his opinions on the girls, that he feels bad for Teresa and Melissa is a “BI”, and the other ones he could care less about.

    Did anyone happen to read Jay Mohr’s blog about the NJ Housewives? It’s hilarious-and surprisingly astute in spots: http://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-new-jersey/season-3/blogs/jay-mohr/rehashing-and-hashing?page=0,0

    I especially enjoyed this:
    “Jacqueline’s parents are visiting and the conversation turns to how hard Jacqueline had it when Miss Personality, Ashley (Oshley), was born. Jacqueline’s dad, Jerry, tells the story about how when Jacqueline found out what a dead beat her husband was, she took everything he owned, dumped it out into the courtyard, and told him to come and get it. I don’t know about you, but I was very uncomfortable when Jerry said that Ashley has an absentee dad with Chris sitting right in front of him. If I was Chris, I would have stood up and thrown all of Ashley’s stuff into the courtyard and told her to come and get it. Kudos to Chris for not even clearing his throat during this exchange. And super, super respect for being a great stepparent.”

    Spot on, Jay.

CarolineManjo’s hairdo, the biker look… greasy as hell and it drew attention to her lightly mis-drawn eyebrows. She looked like a sad showered clown.

    Just watched the “After Show” with Ramona. That woman couldn’t tell a lie if her life depended on it and then we have Jill that couldn’t tell the truth if her life depended on it. That it the difference between these two.

  44. Arya Stark says:

    Has Jill posted her newsletter lies yet?

    I really on you guys to post them here! No way in hell will I join anything Jill has a hand in.

  45. Rabble Rouser says:

    Are we the crazy ones?

    I just checked out the Bravo blogs- and it’s a Teresa love fest. I really don’t get it, she and her husband are criminals yet people are responding to them like they are a hardworking couple who are in danger of loosing their house because they have to pay for their baby’s cancer treatments. I just don’t understand how this could garner sympathy.

    Is is violent shrew and people are acting like she is a super hero that carried horses on her back out of burning barn.

    Are we missing something?

      Girl, her fans are like Diane Fosse and Tree and Co. are Gorillas in the mist. They’re protecting the last of the species. :P

    • Arya Stark says:

      I think many people *here* I mean are missing something.

      People aren’t necessarily morons or forgetful about the horrid things Theresa has done in her life. I haven’t forgotten a thing, for example.

      However, IN THIS PARTICULAR SITUATION?

      I side with and have compassion for Theresa. Her brother (so far) is little better than an animal, and just as stupid as Theresa, but far more violent, and who knew THAT was possible?

      Melissa comes across to me as a total spoiled brat instigator who IS jealous of Theresa’s TV time, wangled a way into Theresa’s show, and is constantly agitating her ox of a brute husband into hating his sister. She is completely UN likeable to me. At least as much as Theresa. Her alignment with Kim is also part of it.

      The other thing I think people here ARE missing is that Theresa really does seem to be in real pain from this rift, while Melissa comes off as glorying in it, just relishing it, and provoking it as much as possible.

      In no way does that mean I LIKE Theresa. I know it’s unpopular here, but if you read other sites, or even look at the Bravo vote? I am seriously NOT in the minority.

      I want to see Theresa pay for the financial scams that she and Joe got into. I do believe it was mostly Joe, and Theresa was too stupid to know. What I don’t enjoy watching is a families pain on TV. I just don’t. I don’t want Theresa to “pay” by having her father and mother and kids have to suffer through family wars played out on TV.

      And frankly? That is the ONLY reason they brought that viper Melissa on the show, and she is willing to do anything it takes for fame. So I don’t like her MORE.

      LOL, I know people won’t agree with me, but since you asked…

      BTW, I also do believe that Theresa was completely kept in the dark about the addition of Joey and Melissa (and Kathy and Kim) this season. I honestly believe that had she known? In spite of desperately needing the money? I don’t think she would have signed. I really don’t.

      This is bleeding from the heart crap. This is too “real.” Theresa looks like a whipped or beaten dog this season, and she barely has the intelligence of an average dog. It’s just sad, and Melissa knew damn well exactly what Bravo had in mind, and was more than willing to give them (and us) the show, in spite of whom it harmed.

      For that reason? I can’t stand the little bitch.

      • Arya Stark says:

        That said? I wouldn’t mind a bit if Joe or Theresa were thrown in jail, and I would love to see every damn thing they own repossessed to pay the people they scammed. ON camera.

        • DJ Loops Fruit says:

          I wouldnt care too much if it werent for the kids

      • Nancy says:

        ITA.

      • @home says:

        I agree with everything you said and is exactly how I feel about it. I think I’d understand people wanting to watch Teresa’s head spin over money issues, but to watch her lose it over family stuff is kind of sad to me.

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        I’m not talking about what happened at the Christening. I’m not talking about Teresa vs Melissa and who is right and who is wrong in that situation.

        Have you read the comments at Bravo, if not maybe you should and you would get a better understanding of what/who I am referring to.

        I am referring to actual Teresa fans; the ones who buy her books- and line up to see her. The ones who are calling her ‘a beautiful soul’ ect.

        I’ve said plenty of times that I can’t stand Melissa. I just don’t see what one thing has to do with another.

        • Arya Stark says:

          I think they are related though.

          Sympathy for what is happening to her this season leads to supportive posts.

          ???

          • Rabble Rouser says:

            There might have been a few supportive posts from people who find the family feud unfortunate, but the bulk of what I saw where from her fan base.

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        oh she knew thats why she went berserk when Danielle broght them up on the reunion
        she knew Andy was trying to get them to join the cast to replace Danielle
        and though im on T’s side regarding this fiasco
        I dont see Mellissa in the same light
        she seems like she is the one trying to get Joey & His sister back together
        she admits to being spoiled
        but i dont think she is as mean as people think

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      im not really a T fan but in the case regarding the brawl at that party im in her corner
      she didnt do anything
      she wasnt giving attitude she was being nice and she did just go to her brother and sister in law to say congrats

      the 2 joes are the ones to blame

  48. FLG says:

    I also do have SOME compassion for Teresa. I do think JJ was the primary lawbreaker in their situation. She is doing a lot of book signings and running all over the place(and mostly non resort type places) trying to promote and sell her products. That has to be physically exhausting and I think we are seeing the toll it is taking on her. I give her credit for going from a do nothing but spend woman to a get out there and work woman. She’s not the brightest bulb in the socket and deep down I believe she has finally figured out that the bankruptcy isn’t going to go well for them. They are going to be on the hook for a large portion, if not nearly all of the money they owe. JJ can’t legally drive, who knows what’s up with the Pizza Parlor? The IRS is either after them or will coming knocking on the door again really soon. She really can’t unload JJ until all the bankruptcy mess is completed, her brother is vapid, her sister in law is even more vapid (so far). I don’t envy any aspect of what she is going thru. Yes, she helped dig the hole, but I don’t think she had sense enough to know that it was a shovel in her purses. In many ways I do wish her luck. She’s going to NEED it. This mess is still going to take years to completely settle and I bet JJ is going to do some slammer time. They have to be up to their eyeballs in legal fees, too! It wouldn’t surprise me to find out they rent that white Mercedes for just a few days while they are filming and that it isn’t even really fully leased.

    • Arya Stark says:

      FLG,
      Thank-you for your post. I thought I was the only one that is NOT enjoying the demise of Teresa and her family. I keep thinking of those 4 little girls.
      Do you think JJ is going to go to Jail/prison? If their bankruptcy doesn’t go through will they loose their house? If yes where will they go? Something tells me Teresa’s brother are NOT going to welcome them at their house. Now that would be some good reality TV, eh?
      Glad to see you have a soft spot in you. :)

        i mentioned that last year also… i feel bad for the kids… period… no matter how bratty they can be. and gia this year is coming across as a very mature-for-her-age young lady. my heart went out to her at the christening. joe and teresa should get what they have coming to them, but i still can’t help but to be concerned about the girls. justice yes, but i don’t want teresa and joe hung by their toes over a fire til they fry like some do.

        • DJ Loops Fruit says:

          Iagree about Gia 100 per cent
          it is funny to me when the kids act more mature then the people raising them

        The fraud he allegedly committed on the driver’s license issue could land him in the slammer. Assuming someone else’s identity is pretty serious stuff these days. I really think he’s going to have to serve some time over all this stuff. I don’t think it’s going to be a two week sentence either. I think we’re talking felony level things they are alleging. I have not seen any of the documents, so this is all just personal opinion. In Florida, if found guilty he’d be up poo creek for sure.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      Yes I agree.

      We’re finally seeing T acknowledge her financial and family issues and deal with them. She’s got a long way to go to prove herself, but if she does earn some money and pay off her debts, then that would be a great step forward. I have no issue with her selling her products – whether she wrote the books, created the recipes, etc. They all get help.

      I don’t like her more or less than her brother – they both have major anger issues that they should get help for – but I don’t want to see any of them suffer.

    Is the Forbes magazine out yet? – the one with Bethenny on it? I will try to stop by the store tonight to get it if it is.

    I thoght someone had said that Bethenny is coming to LA at the end of June, does anyone know? I looked on her webpage just before I came here this afternoon.

    before I forget – I don’t like Cindy (is she as stupid as Kelly??!!!), I still don’t like Kelly and Luanne, and as for their puppeteer – well DUH!! I hope they all turn on her at some point…if Luanne used her evail for good, she could take her down….

        • error404 says:

          pfft… as someone who knows many a “50s wife”, believe me they all knew where the bodies were hidden. Ter knows exactly everything that went down, and like Carmella Soprano is a master at “who me? I don’t know a thing!”. yeah right.

          • Arya Stark says:

            Theresa isn’t that bright.

            She is uneducated (obviously) and seems to have a very low IQ.

            I can also easily see Joe hitting the roof if she asked for “business” details. It’s (her kind, not all) and Italian thing.

          • Amber...Real Wife says:

            She knew enough! She paid for over a hundred thousand dollars worth of furniture CASH! What no bank account? She shopped without limit, had fertility treatments which she didn’t pay for….she knew. As for not signing on if Melissa was on… she still would’ve. She signed the day before the christening, after threatening Melissa and Joe to not sign for weeks, she did realizing the hardballing wasn’t working on BRAVO. BTW it’s not Tre’s show, like it’s not Dina’s or Jacq’s or Danielle’s or ClownyC. or Jill’s, Nene’s etc. It belongs to BRAVO. So far Bethenny is the only one that has a show.

            • DJ Loops Fruit says:

              in the summer by Bravo its pretty obvious whp Bravo favors though from teh housewives i think only Caroline is in the ad

          • DJ Loops Fruit says:

            Im not so sure about that
            like her getting so upset hearing that er child was left unattended and insisting that wasnt true
            i really believe that T didnt know that Joe left the kid alone like that

            there are times when you can see it on her face that she didnt know something happened

            she isnt good at lying
            and its not hard to believe that her hubby kept her in the dark a lot

        • FLG says:

          I know exactly what you mean. My dearly departed mother made sure that she always had her own credit, bank accounts, automobiles, etc. She and my Wonderful Father were very close, loving, supportive of one another and were married until the day she died, but she made sure that if something had happened to him first, she would be financially aware and secure in her own right. Before she died, she made sure that he was aware of her finances, so he wouldn’t be in the dark either. It is a good lesson to ALL couples.

          • FLG says:

            It was a yours, mine and ours kind of situation. It worked well for them. It is difficult enough to pick up the pieces just from the grief of losing a spouse/life partner without adding financial confusion into the mix.

    Everyone mark this date down, because I’m about to say the unthinkable: I owe Alexis Bellino an apology.

    Back when Alexis was talking about her and Jim’s (ugh) sex drive, she said she used the word “cookies” as code. As in, does anyone want cookies? Etc. I thought it was dumb, and I criticized her. Well, I am now nostalgic for people who have the discretion not to discuss their sex life in front of small children and go on and on about it like some locker-room jock, eg Joe Gorga. I’m sorry, Alexis. You may be a crazy kook at dinner parties, in foreclosure, torturing your seamstress employee, and angry that Vicki’s internal bleeding “ruined” your fashion show, but you’ve proven that living on Jesus Lane isn’t all bad. ;)

    • alicia says:

      Ewww- Joe Gorga gives Italians a bad name. The two Italian boys I dated in high school would never talk like this. Many Italian families are very, very conservative. Education was a very high priority, as each generation had to go farther than the last.
      My husband just watched the NJ episode where Joe is discussing his need for sex. He is a developer and was amazed at Joe’s obvious lack of education. How can joe go in front of bankers or investors-it just does not make sense?

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        i think Joey is playing it up for the cams
        letting us all in how great as ex drive he has
        most likely he is also going to adult porn theaters or book stores and letting gay men service him

        trust me i know the type to a T

    • Sparkles says:

      I guess it’s all relative. I don’t like Alexis but agree that “Do you want some cookies?” is better than “Come pop my zit!”

    • FLG says:

      Alexis is still on my poo list, but for a completely different reason. I wrote about it at length previously so I won’t go into it now. I’ll keep it short and say that I hope no gay person will ever help her forward her career, do her hair or nails and may she go thru life without make up ever touching her face again.

    Here is why I don’t believe the latest Barshop claim that her clothing was thrown on the floor. . . If her clothing was thrown on the floor and she noticed the hangars were missing do we think she would have gone to the blondes or even LuAnn to complain that her hangars were taken or would she have gone and complained about her room being trashed and the clothing thrown on the floor?

    Maybe a worker at the site did it because Sonja was keeping them from stealing from the van!

      I think the maid mistook her clothing for cleaning rags accidentally left behind, and then once she discovered her mistake, tried to put them back where she found them.

      • error404 says:

        well, considering that Cindy usually looks like she’s wearing clothes she picked-up off the floor, you might be onto something

        I know she just had kids and then kicked the baby daddy out, but someone needs to remind her she’s not on “teen mom”

      • FLG says:

    On Deathby1000Papercuts there are some pics of Jillz and Jonathon and Jennifer Zarin. The sympathy we all felt was indeed calculated as that girl wears concealing foundation and contacts too! She’s no Angelina, but definitely won’t be stared at oddly when done up as she just looks like an average Jane. I know she still suffers from the condition, but she’s got her moments.

    Look!

    • Nancy says:

      That’s our Jill Zarin! The “woman” is scum.

    • error404 says:

      The BBC ran a very interesting series back around 2003 where they gave a half dozen or so “average” people video cameras and asked them to do documentaries of their own lives and then edited them for tv. First week was a teen girl who’s mom was in and out of rehab, another week was a midget/small person who lived on an island and didn’t know anyone like her, so she travels to a small person convention and meets others for the first time, etc… Anyway, one week was a woman with a similar birthmark who always wore concealing make-up, but she went around interviewing people, a friend who was raising a child with birthmarks who never hid them etc…and then one day went to the mall with the friend a child out in public with no make-up for the first time. It was very liberating for her, but not comfortable and she went right back to using concealant. It was very interesting.

      anywho, bitch from hell that I am (notice I wasn’t raptured on the 21st!) I was about THE only person in america not all teary eyes over Jen Zarin’s speech. It was so much ado about nothing imo, like most things Jill Zarin. it’s like they threw this who fake party, trucked the poor girl out like a statue of the madonna at an Italian religious festival, and gave 5 minutes of thought to “bullying”, then ate overpriced lunch and bid on stupid stuff they don’t want or need. It would have been 100x more interesting if she was just on the show as a relative. I mean, they wasted like 10x more film on Ally going to fat camp! The whole thing came off as fake. The only thing worth it was when LuAnn came in like a bat out of hell and immediately started bullying Ramona at the anti-bullying ladies-who-lunch lunchon. LO

      • Nancy says:

        error,
        I almost died laughing when LuMan did that. The “best” thing for me is when Jill started “crying” during her DIL’s “speech.
        Do you think Jill is soo stupid that she doesn’t know she’s making a complete idiot of herself? Probably a stupid question right?

            That would have sent them running. Nobody would have been around by the time the turned on the “ugly” lights. That’s what we used to call it when the bars closed at night. Last call had happened and it was time for everyone to clear out. The bright lights would turn on and suddenly a lot of the “cute” guys weren’t as cute as they had appeared in the dim light.

    It continues to amaze me how this woman has the audacity to show her face in public after all the things she has done and said. She constantly makes a fool of herself everytime she opens her mouth, but even that doesn’t stop her. Her lies have been undressed and opened to all those who know her, yet she still carries on as though she is without fault(s). How does one look themselves in the mirror each day and think or believe they are so pure and innocent. Is she so consumed by all the hype from the media coverage she gets, that it has blinded her from the real truth about herself? It really is very very sad not only for her, but for us the public too.

    the pool for Memorial Day and I said, it’s too early (because of the pollen).
    Well there are three lawn chairs rolling around the pool cover this morning.

    I hope my fellow New Englanders are okay this morning.

      Good morning, Butter & Boston! Glad you’re both safe and sound. That was a crazy night. We had the warning (not just watch) here, but didn’t get hit.

      That lightning was intense! I have never seen constant lightning like that. Watching the news this morning. My heart goes out to all the people in Springfield and Monson.

      • butterisafruit says:

        The lightning was amazing. That T-storm was like watching the Pops on the 4th. And it just wouldn’t go away. I never lost power, it flickered but nada. The news is showing some horrif sites in Springfield. I’m very glad you’re well too Flower.

    I’m watching I Love Lucy because I’m so sick of the news. Ricky & Lucy are having supper and they have A1 sauce on the table just like the kind we buy today. Same bottle.

  69. DJ Loops Fruit says:

    I Live for lucy

    • boston02127 says:

      They were eating with Fred & Ethel in Lucy’s living room. The bottle was on the table.

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        was it the one where Lucy was trying to get a fighting Fred & Ethel back together again
        or possibly the one where they are discussing the Mertez aniversary OR most likely because of the steak sauce is it the one where lucy is desperate to lose weight and while they are eatting steak she has a nice big plate with one celery stalk

        “its just the way i like it Nice and Juicy” LOL
