I Hate Jill Zarin Finale Night Tonight June 3, 2010

I Hate Jill Zarin                   Thursday, June 03, 2010

We all saw the news, Sonja Morgan was arrested over Memorial Day weekend for Driving While Intoxicated.  This is a very serious matter, in my opinion.  I read many of the messages that were sent to her both on Twitter and on Facebook.  I admit I was a little surprised by the support.  I know she is one of the more popular housewives,  in such a short period of time she has really become a fan favorite.  It is very unusual for instant popularity in the housewives series.  I don’t think there has been anything like it since Kandi joined the Atlanta Housewives. 

I am not here to bash Sonja, I just hope that this is taken seriously and that she is treated exactly the same way as any other citizen would be treated with no special perks for being a wealthy celebrity.  People on Facebook were commenting with, “this too shall pass” and it was surprising to me.  I don’t think it will pass.  Others were saying things like, “she probably only had 1 glass of wine and police over-reacted”, or “we weren’t there we don’t know if she had been drinking”.  True, I wasn’t there, but I do know quite a few police officers and one thing I do know is that they hate passing out DWI’s (or DUI’s).  The paperwork is astronomical!  Drinking while driving, particularly by a mother is very serious.  In general, I don’t think that police want to charge people with DWI when it isn’t evident. 

Reports claim that Sonja refused the breathalyzer test, she did the right thing.  That is typically what an attorney would instruct you to do, in fact, many police officers have recommended the same.  The breathalyzer is admissible in court and makes a DWI an open and shut case most of the time.  Reports also said that Sonja failed the street sobriety test.  Again, not being there, we don’t know but that usually means she was unable to walk a straight line, possibly failed the touch the nose test and could possibly have been slurring her words.  (We saw her slur substantially on RHONY) 

I’m not here to judge, I don’t know what happened, I’m just thrilled no one was hurt and again hope that Sonja is treated by the court system just like anyone else.  Mostly I hope that Sonja never drives after drinking under any circumstances.

In any case, she is back after a long absence on the social networks, she appeared on Good Day New York this morning (I did not see it as I don’t get that here in Chicago) and she has sent Tweets and Facebook messages.   The arrest isn’t mentioned in any of her messages, not only am I fairly sure she doesn’t want to talk about it, she has also most likely been advised by an attorney to keep quiet.

Sonja’s most recent Tweets:  (with a bonus from Jill in the first one)

Who is Brad?RT @Jillzarin: Tonight is finale. Brad has cameo at Luann’s party!  (note from Lynn:  I love that Sonja doesn’t know who Brad is, shows Sonja’s world doesn’t revolve around Jill.  Cute too that Jill chose Sonja to tweet to, she is running out of housewives that she can talk to) 

Me too w the Countess! RT@CountessLuAnn: Heading into town to appear on Extra!

Live on Fox 5 at 8:45am Good Day NY http://bit.ly/aS1CGe

Tomorrow on Fox 5 at 845am w Rossana Scotto. NY Today show. Nite!

If anyone saw Sonja on NY local show this morning, let us know what she had to say.  Maybe we’ll see a You-Tube of it later on. 

I see most of you feel the way I do about Jill’s most recent rants about Alex McCord.  I think Jill really needs a good PR person.  I have heard (rumor) that she does not have a PR person because she refuses to pay for one.   If this is true, it is really idiotic because a good PR person would save her thousands in book sales, merchandise sales and untold hits on her horrible reputation. 

At many points in time during this season of RHONY I have thought of many ways that Jill could have gotten herself out of this mess and save a lot of fans along the way.  If at the right time she apologized, admitted her mistakes and showed that she was truly trying to make amends, she may have been able to have had limited damage done to her reputation.  Her biggest problem is that she thinks fans are stupid. Having an assistant delete all of the negative comments and messages that she receives is also another big mistake. 

If only she had read a few of those comments, many of them had excellent advice for the most hated housewife.  Many told her to humble herself, to apologize to fans, to stop yapping on and on about her book.  That was the fans talking directly to her!  Invaluable information that she failed to utilize.  People were trying to help her without even realizing what they were doing.  Their criticisms were directions on how to fix it.  I think many of these people were fans of Jill’s in the past and really wanted to like her again, they were telling her how that could happen and instead of taking some free advice, she was paying someone to trash it all.  For someone who is so fond of money, she has no idea how to earn it!

Her timing this entire season has been horrible.  She sent a Facebook message asking fans how to make up with Bethenny the same week as her book was released.  She sent a message about “Crazy Fans” who claim she was writing her own reviews on Amazon.  Nice job Jill, it wasn’t like people were speculating that she had done this.  She DID do this!  The Amazon reviews posted by Susan Saunders were traced back very easily to Jill Shapiro who had a daughter named Ally and a husband named Bobby and lived in New York.  Once again, Jill, fans are not stupid! 

Had Jill only posted that positive review and left it at that, she would have been able to minimize the damage by saying “ooops, busted, sorry guys, I couldn’t resist” and even using Andy’s “out” by naming other famous authors in history that have done the same.  Is it still bad?  Sure, but it could have been kept under control.  The problem is that Jill didn’t stop at giving her own book a 5-star review, she decided to take it to an ugly place and give both Bethenny and Alex/Simon’s books a horrible 1-star review.  That and mentioning in her own review that her mother had passed away…that is just sick! 

I simply think that a good PR person could have turned this around for Jill, I really do.  Actually, even a mediocre PR person could have certainly improved on her reputation problems.  Hell, I could have given her better advice than whoever is advising her now, (if she is listening to anyone) . I doubt Bobby even knows everything that Jill has done.  I don’t believe that he is on the internet in any way shape or form.  I do not believe for one second that Bobby Zarin’s Facebook page has ever been viewed by Bobby Zarin.  I would bet anything that Jill set it up and is maintaining it.  I think Jill hides the absolute worst things that she has done from Bobby and he may only hear minor issues while at work or at functions but probably ignores most of it as rumors.    In real life, most people would not have the balls to walk up to Bobby Zarin and tell him what a horrible woman his wife is and details of all the things that she has done.

By now the NY housewives have viewed their episode for tonight.  As you saw in Sonja’s tweets, Jill announced that Brad (her gay husband) will appear in tonight’s episode.  I talked about this in an earlier blog, I think something happened between Brad, Jill and/or Bravo that led to this appearance.  At the beginning of the season, Brad was sending Facebook messages telling fans to send emails to Bravo asking them to bring him back to the show.  Immediately after Jill appeared on Watch What Happens Live, where she announced that she and Brad were still tight, Brad changed his tune on Facebook.  He sent a long messages saying that he had been traveling and he and Jill were still very good friends and that he would be appearing on the show in later episodes.  It’s all very fishy! 

And Crazy Kelly is up this morning Tweeting away and creating more You-Tube Videos, here’s the latest:

I uploaded a YouTube video — 524 0142 http://youtu.be/IyDAw1lBwBA?a

Growing number of Teens are using rhythm method for birth control. Practice safe sex, use a condom.

@ericstern1141 tks baby for pulling such hot clothes for me for #realhousewives.

@bravoandy “scary island” was the most downloaded show on itunes on all of TV

 Mornin

Does anyone know if her tweet to Andy Cohen is true?  I don’t know where to find that information but she isn’t the most dependable source of information so while I suppose it could be true, I can’t confirm or deny her tweet.

She is surprisingly lucid in her video and complimentary to all of the housewives, even Bethenny.  She advises Jen and Sonja to bring their boxing gloves next season.  Of course, Kelly doesn’t know if they will be invited back next season, many people are tweeting her with the assumption that Kelly knows something that no one else knows.  I think she was just spewing her “words of wisdom” after her many years of experience on the Housewives series.  (yes, that was sarcasm)  Kelly also didn’t give any indication of her intentions for next season either but people are tweeting her asking if that was her “goodbye” forever from the Housewives.  Wow, some people read too much into the deep mind of Kelly Bensimon.  (yes more sarcasm)

Kelly was on a roll for the past two days, she seems to have way too much time on her hands tweeting endlessly, posting photos on Facebook and making You-Tube videos.  I suppose it could be worse, she could be volunteering to work with children.  She is solidifying her insane behavior on the show and proving that she hasn’t changed or gotten any real help.  She is also sticking to her story of being bullied.  Many, including myself, have tweeted her questions about this alleged bullying including mine asking her why she keeps saying that all four women were harassing her when it certainly appeared to us that at the very least, Sonja was kind and caring and never said a bad word to her.  She doesn’t respond to any rational questions, she is very choosy about which questions she answers.  She continues to be contradictory in one minute saying how she is the only “real” person on the show then saying that it is just a TV show and isn’t her real life.  She says she is just creating entertainment for people and it shouldn’t be taken seriously, just enjoy it…blah blah blah.  At one point she even said to someone that they should come on the “set” with her during filming to see what really happens.  Um…there aren’t any “sets” Kelly!  All of this, to me, adds to my assumption that she does not have full custody of her children.  School is out, why isn’t she doing things with her girls?  I don’t think that they are with her.  (Just my opinion)

Moving on, I do plan to blog during Bethenny Getting Married?  In addition, I imagine that Jill and Kelly won’t go anywhere and will have plenty to say on Twitter and Facebook during Bethenny’s show.   Every now and then I will even comment on The Jersey Girls!   (who are really pissing me off by the way, but I’ll save that for the next blog as this one is getting long)

Tonight’s the night for the big finale.  I am looking forward to seeing Ramona’s wedding vow renewal ceremony, I think based on the previews they are trying to make us think that there are questions about who will and won’t attend.  A preview shows Jill saying she isn’t sure if she will attend and Luann saying that if she were Jill, she wouldn’t attend after being thrown out of the VI house like that.   Manufactured drama, as we know from Ramona’s interviews that they all attend in the end. 

Also looking forward to the lunch scene between Jill and Bethenny, the preview showed Jill crying crocodile tears (Ramona’s words) but hiding the “tears” behind her napkin, easier to make it appear real?  We’ll see.  I don’t think anything can convince me that Bethenny would let Jill back into her life again, not the way they were before the argument.  I just hope Bethenny shields that little baby from Secrets of A Jewish Mother forever!  (not all Jewish mother’s, just the Jill Zarin variety) 

 I hope Bryn learns how to eat healthy from Bethenny’s good sense and isn’t pouring her formula all over her mashed veggies in order to avoid overeating.  I hope Bryn learns how to find the man of her dreams by watching the love and respect between her mommy and daddy and doesn’t “settle” for a rich Jewish man just because he has money.  Finally, I hope Little Bryn learns to work hard and have integrity from her Mommy and doesn’t give out BJ’s in order to attain a jewelry collection.

So as I said, Yes, I will be blogging during Bethenny’s Getting Married?  After hearing Bethenny describe it on Access Hollywood, it looks like it will be a sweet, funny and enjoyable watch!  A great improvement over what we’ve been watching on RHONY and NJ! 

I hope that someday Jill and Kelly can truly become better people, truly be happy for Bethenny and get rid of the jealousy that is causing them to act like idiots and show their ugly side!   Wow, I might as well wish for world peace.

This weekend Alex and Simon are coming to Chicago with their cute little boys!  I am so excited to meet them and I have taken notes of all of your questions and messages to them.  I know that they are contractually obligated to keep their mouths shut about the reunion, but you know I have to try!  Lol

Anyone who can join us is more than welcome, no advanced reservations or notification required.  Just show up at their book signing between 4pm and 6pm at Barnes and Noble on Clybourn or you can also come directly to Cagney’s Restaurant just down the street from the book store also on Clybourn anytime between 6pm and 9pm.  If you need any more information, details or just want to let me know you’re coming, feel free to contact me.  I love hearing from you all for any reason! 

They have also added an earlier book signing in the Chicago suburb of Winnetka between 11am and 2pm.  Alex and Simon will appear on the local news program WGN-TV Channel 9 on Friday morning.  They may even mention the cocktail reception at Cagney’s on the show.  Last I heard they were talking to a few other news outlets in Chicago to appear while they are here but I don’t have anything more on that. 

Please don’t worry about the blog while I’m away.  I will be gone most of the day on Saturday with my son’s sports in the morning and Simon and Alex in the evening, but I do have a plan!  Not to worry!   You will all be well cared for…lol

Finally anyone who is interested in more about the Jersey Housewives, ImStillToni is blogging about those crazy ladies and more at:  Imstilltoni.com  She is a reality show junkie who has tried out for Big Brother a few times and personally, I think they’d be crazy not to take her, she is the perfect nut for that show!  (I say that with all the love in the world)

Until next time…

    check your blog lynn…you mean ramona’s renewal vows

  2. Anitabee says:

    Another great post for the I HATE JILL ZARIN (more than ever) blog.

    Lynn – you really really make my day. I have family obligations this weekend or I would go downtown to meet you. You seem to be an ubercool Chicago Chick.

    Hey, any plans to blog about Top Chef? It is a great show – totally different from Real Housewives but still has great moments to blog about.

    Hope your weekend goes smooth and you have a fantastic time!

    • ImStillToni says:

      Ohhh that’s a good point @Anitabee! re: TC

      Lynn, we gotta talk about more shows – cuz I watch EVERYTHING. lmao I pretty much watch all summer shows except AGT so we can definitely tag-team some more show lol

  3. ImStillToni says:

    Ok I did some digging for you Lynn and as of this post, here are the RH iTunes ranking PER ep (best-selling = most purchases)
    #5 RHoNJ – Into the Lion’s Den
    #15 RHoNY – Sunburn (highest rated RHoNY ep on iTunes…but ratings just mean actually reviews by people with accounts…that’s it)
    #50 RHoNJ – Babies, Bubbles, and Bubbies
    The Scary Island ep is actually called Sun, Sand, and Psychosis, which is currently #127.
    I know networks get weekly numbers so I’m not going to say Andy’s lying…but it could be possible that the week the ep aired it WAS the best-selling tv show on iTunes.

    I keep TELLING BB that I would be the better “Black” person to cast instead of Chima…all I need is wine & cigs, I’m more low maintanence! lmaooo

    • shantygal says:

      Toni – I’d love to see you on BB. I’m a die-hard fan. You have to admit though, Chima was fun to hate on. Can you bring the drama girl?

      • ImStillToni says:

        Shanty – well definitely stop by my blog when BB starts…I do the live feeds, BBAD, everything! I did like Chima until she really flipped out and in my heart, I know that her knowing Marcellus gave her the in she needed and there’s NO way her ass passed that psych exam….I made it far enough to know some strings had to have been pulled.
        I can bring the drama, but I love the game (like Survivor) and respect gameplay…those fools get all emotionally wrapped up on their little hamster bubbles and forget that we see more than they think. Honestly, I was D-U-N (lmao yup I still say that, tyvm Nasty Natalie) with Chima when she tried to throw Braden under the bus with Julie during the live ep and then they pre-recorded the other live ep just to prevent a Chima meltdown? GTFO I was praying for Grodner to expell Chima’s ass – way overdue IMO.

        Definitely hit me up on my blog so we can talk more BB deets. I also live recaps on some BB sites and I’m a full on addict!

        • shantygal says:

          Will do. I follow another site that does live feed recaps. I’m too cheap to suscribe -haha. Can never get enough of BB.

        • Laura says:

          Toni:
          Do you have an insider information about the upcoming Season of BB?
          I honestly do not think that July 8th can get here fast enough…which is sad b/c for me, it always feels like once July 4th comes, summer is half over (since my kids start school the first week of August)
          Any news at all is greatly appreciated 🙂
          Thanks!

          • Laura says:

            Sorry, I should’ve posted that on Toni’s blog…which I just did. Sorry for off topic post

    • LynnNChicago says:

      Thank you Toni, interesting, Kelly was the one who claimed (in a tweet to Andy) that her episode was #1 on iTunes. She is a piece of work!

      • ImStillToni says:

        Lynn, at this point I’m truly wondering if Kelly is a functional illiterate so I take whatever she says with a grain of salt lmao actually after the incident with Sea I’m now convinced it is Sea posting Kelly’s tweets ctfu. She’s so delusional I can see Kelly THINKING she’s number one…systematic bullying? More like Systematic breakdown resulting in Giles slapping her ass witt a 5150

  4. Bravo fan says:

    I don’t think people who support Sonya are trying to say that drinking behind the wheel is okay. If people felt she was an irresponsible person overall I don’t think she would be getting support. She seems to be the type of person who would own up to what she did and would never get behind the wheel after drinking again. Hopefully she will even take this opportunity to be a spokesperson against drinking and driving. I think the support comments really meant that we know Sonya did something very wrong but we know you will do the right thing and we support you.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      I hope you are right because I really do like Sonja, (she even complimented me on my blog) I know she reads my blogs and I really hope she does the right thing and I have a feeling that she will.

      • A former Jill fan says:

        I guess we all hope so Lynn, that Sonja will do the right and responsible thing, but I won’t hold my breath. It seems people with money think they’re above the law most of the time. That’s generalizing, I know, but I’m in a wait and see mode. I would not be surprised if she pleads “no contest”. That to me is a cop out.

        • Kat says:

          I think as a matter of law “no contest”” pleas are different that guilty pleas. I don’t recall the specifics but I think a no contest plea is legally safer. It might have to do with the appeals process. Wish I could remember.

          I do think that moral right and wrong are very different than legal guilt and non-guilt in our justice system.

          • ImToula says:

            Suffolk County Police are known for the strict policing of their territory. The Hamptons are little towns with not much going on. The people that live there all year round pretty much know each other.
            They don’t mess around. There are many well to do and famous people that live there as we all know. She will be treated like everyone else. When Billy Joel was caught driving drunk he was sent to rehab. I’m sure that Sonja will be treated as she should be. I must say she is one smart cookie for not taking the breathalyzer test. If she could think that well, how drunk was she really?

  5. If You Had It Like This says:

    You can see Sonja’s interview here Lynn:

    http://www.myfoxny.com/subindex/good_day_ny

  6. shantygal says:

    Lynn, I said this towards the end of the last blog, but I love you & the blog. Have a great time with the McCord-VanKempens. I can’t wait for the full report (and pics too if you can swing it).

    Yours in Jillhateness.

  7. Olivia says:

    Lynn, I am convinced that there is no way in hell that any of these ladies, primarily Jill and Kelly, can ever change their ways. This is how they got to where they are today. They are experts at using whatever means necessary to satisfy their egos.

    For them, the world revolves around their wants and needs. Lying, bickering, backstabbing, ridiculing, has produced a sense of entitlement and no amount of heartfelt advice will change that. Their world is only in how they perceive and control it and they have shown the public their true selves repeatedly and it is not pretty.

    It would not be surprising to see Kelly back next season since Bravo’s stable of questionable “stars” also features the pathology of Danielle Staub in a featured role. She is stomach turning for many of us yet the producers seem satisfied in milking this unreal storyline for all it is worth as this woman continues to slide further and further each week into bona fide insanity, dragging her own children along with her. If she is able to find “sanctuary” within the confines of Bravo than Kelly need not feel threatened by a possible firing. As with Kelly and Jill, she is also immune from fan comments and criticism that accompany her via Twitter and her blog.

    These women seek the spotlight and have shed any sense of integrity or authenticity so pleading with them to show a sense of remorse, decorum or self examination is wasted. They revel in it and are unafraid to show their faces no matter the extent of the damage incurred by their behavior.

    It’s the “fame” baby, bring on the fame!

    • A former Jill fan says:

      Unfortunately you may be right, but I won’t be watching anymore. If they want to go in the direction of using people who are mentally unstable, then I’ll be watching something else or reading a good book. 😛

      • Kat says:

        I agree with you. Watching exploitation feels wrong. I have enough anxiety in real life. Watching Kelly has been an exercise in futility as she spins out of control. You just know someone will help her but the help never comes.
        And she is a shallow bitch, so I feel guilty for disliking her.

    • A former Jill fan says:

      The only reason I watched the part where Danielle went to the Brownstone this past episode was to see if it was really all Danielle’s delusions behind her actions and how far they went or if Bravo had hyped the previews. It was Danielle.

  8. anniieee says:

    Thanks again Lynn for an awesome blog… You ask all the right questions and I love your take on things.

  9. PFinFL says:

    Jill is so obvious pr-ing her book by letting everyone know how many people show up for her book signings while dissing Alex. And how they help her get over everything…blah..blah. She is wrong about Alex. Alex finally got tired of Jill’s digs about her Simon and their two boys.

  10. CdnFillie says:

    Great blog again Lynn…quick question…this reference about Jill + BJ’s = jewelry collection, (throw up in mouth) is brought up often in the blogs..did I miss some mention of this in episodes? Now I have a visual permanently implanted in my brain ewwwww

    • LynnNChicago says:

      It may have been blown out of proportion but I read somewhere in the LONG list of Amazon reviews and responses that Jill eluded to that in her book. Something like, take care of your man in the bedroom and he’ll buy you whatever you want.
      I don’t think I have to tell you that I haven’t read the book and never intend to so it was really just a little joke based on what I read and what others were talking about, mostly on Amazon.

      • celeste says:

        LOL Lynn! “Blown out of proportion” Was that a Freudian Slip????? LMAO!!

        I HATE JILL “The Squawker” ZARIN.

      • A former Jill fan says:

        The actual quote was much more crass than that. I thought there was an article or video about the BJ business, but could be mistaken.

        • Had Enough! says:

          She said it on the Chelsea Handler program when asked about how to keep a husband happy. She said “never say no to a request for a blow job.”

      • Need a Hobby says:

        Wasn’t there a video clip where Jill was trying to get Bawbby to spend megabucks on jewelry for her and she told him if he made her happy “now” she’d make him happy later. At least she seems to practice what she preaches when it comes to using sex to get what she wants. (I’m seriously trying to block out a visualization of that….uuggggh.)

  11. Kelly-Has-Big-Shoulders says:

    @ CdnFillie , It was a Bonus clip video of Bobby taking Jill shopping for A watch. She then wanted everything else in the store and told Bobby he would be happy later something to that effect.

    • PFinFL says:

      Yes…I saw that episode the other day. Her and Bobby were shopping for her a new watch for her b’day?? and they were bringing her rings and necklace’s too, I think. She was trying to get more than just the watch and said something about taking care of Bobby later…that is the sickest part of anything that I’ve watched on housewives yet!

      • Hooked On Housewives says:

        Hey Lynn. Good afternoon ladies and gents.

        @Kelly Has Big Shoulders
        @PFinFL
        Don’t forget the part where the whiny bitch complained she gets shafted because her birthday is so close to holidays.

    • Had Enough! says:

      No – she actually said it on Chelsea Handler. Never say no to a request for a blow job. Trust me, husbands all over the world got in on tape.

      As though we need one more reason to hate Jill Zarin.

  12. Damnert says:

    You have the ability to say what I’m thinking but in a *Your up here and I’m down here* sort of way :). I watch most of the housewives franchises, not because I think they are good, but becauseeeee (hell, cannot give you an answer). I love Alex McCord, Simon, and Bethenny, on New York – but the others – New Jersey, OC, Atlanta (besides Kandi).

    Ya gotta blog on some of the total crazy on each show girl. I know Bravo is in it to make money, but some of these idiots NEED to be made fun of.

    Bethenny IS Susan Saunders. Bethenny set Jill up, also Bethenny & Jason schemed to plant disinformation about Bethenny’s baby being a boy, in order to humiliate Jill.

    This broad is crazy.

      I seriously want to kick TwatMaxine’s, aka Pizzagirl (the same stalker who tormented the RHOC women) sorry ass. She is a crazy nutjob and needs to be muzzled.

        I’m pretty sure that tweetmaxine is a man. I think I read that on bravogossip somewhere.

    I HATE JILL ZARIN! I am on a tear after reading the TV Guide interview! She is so FOS I cannot speak! Sputtering away here because it is safe and neighbors won’t think I’m Kelly walking around ranting! Fucking Jill! Are you kidding me you jealous, hateful, manipulating bitch!? If you are representing your “REAL” self on this show, then you are in serious need of a cranium enema…the soul goes without saying….You are some kind of sick POS and I pray that your daughter can see the difference between you and say, ALEX! Alex did nothing to you you crazy maniacal mediawhoremaster! Jeeez! I would think that even idiot Luman would be able to put some serious distance between the two of you…OMG. Awful. How do you sleep at night you self absorbed media-tripe?

    Thank you for letting me rant Lynn…and have a wonderful time with Alex and Simon and TELL US EVERYTHING!!! Ahhhhwhoooooosh!

    Re: your speculation that Kelly isn’t with her daughters. Um, Lynn, apparently you haven’t seen the photo of Kelly wearing a see-through dress with a thong, showing her ass while she has her arm around her youngest daughter. It was taken this weekend. Great role model.

    Also, I think you are giving Bobby way too much credit, we haven’t seen enough of him in action. After all, he married Jill (didn’t he leave his first wife for her?). And very often, married people share the same values, or lack thereof.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      Hi Firepainter –
      I’m not saying the girls don’t spend time with Kelly, we know from the show that she takes her daughters to the Hamptons on the weekends. I just don’t think that she has full custody. If only her attire was the worst thing she was inflicting on those kids….yikes! I hear you! Remember Kelly saying she would support her kids if they wanted to appear in Playboy…..talk about gross! How could you even think of those two little girls like that…yuk!

      You may be right about Bobby..
      Thanks for the comment!:)xo

    My son is home sick today so I watching the reruns of RHONY. I just watched the episode where Ramona invites B to try to make peace with Jill at her apt. I didn’t realize how cruel Jill was to B. It is almost like Jill would not have it done this way since she had no time to prepare for the camaras. She said to B like – I have no room for you in my life now. B. was so sincere in trying to tell Jill that she needs Jill now and wants her back in her life. Jill would not accept it. After B. left the first thing Jill says is “I look like a cold bitch because I did’t cry”. It is just amazing that the first thing she thinks about is herself and how she looks. Another thing I can’t stand about Jill is the way her eyes keep darting to the right when she talks to someone. I think I remember hearing that if a person can’t keep their eyes on yours when speaking, then they are most likely not telling the truth.

    • PFinFL says:

      I’m watching the reruns today too and what about that part where Jill starts to sit down with Bethenny and says something about having all her past complaints written down but didn’t have it with her??? Who does that?

      I also found it interesting when Jill is at Alex’s and Alex is talking about things that Bethenny is going through…or trying to but can’t because Jill won’t let her finish a sentence and starts assuming things. Jill says that Bethenny is all about building a brand….making money….blah…blah. That was so telling to me. To me, that proves Jill was upset about Bethenny getting her own show and her “brand” doing so well. What Jill doesn’t understand is that Bethenny worked hard for it. It didn’t just happen overnight.

      Also, when Jill was with her family to do the pic for the book cover, she was showing this old case with her shoes….and said this was how the rich used to live and she wanted the big trunk that goes with it but that they would have to sell a whole lot of books for her to afford it. So, I assume she didn’t get the trunk.

      I was just about to post this link, Lynn, but thought I’d read through the comments first to see if it was here.

      Kelly, in all her glory.

  20. error 404 says:

    I’m sorry to have to write these words but Ramona is right.

    She’s right: no woman should have as her life plan total financial dependance on a man.

    Jill was very aggressive in her feud with Bethenny, telling everyone but B that hey were fighting, and twice refused B’s offer to make up.

    Then her mealticket (her husband Bobby) not only took B’s side, but said on camera that she shouldn’t have cut B off and to call a truce.

    Then Jill had to do a 360 and started telling everyone but B that she wanted to make up.

    • Kokuanani says:

      Then Jill had to do a 360 and started telling everyone but B that she wanted to make up.

      Slight correction: I think you mean a “180,” since doing a “360” puts you back where you started from — i.e., no change.

      See, 8th grade geometry comes in handy later in life!!

  23. error 404 says:

    If this is the way Jill is with her cast mates, I can just imagine how things go at family get togethers.

    We all saw how tense the relationship is between Ally and Bobby, you can just imagine how they are between Jill and Bobby sons. Not only did their mom get dumped, but dad’s mistress is now messing with the family business. That story alone should have had a reality tv show!

  24. causticbroad says:

    Lynn, I was one who sent a twitter msg to Sonia that “this too shall pass”. I am 20 years sober and before getting sober, I was arrested for DWI while living in California. I sent her that note because I noticed that she hadn’t tweeted anything in several days and I am sure she was feeling the same things I did for years, shame, guilt, remorse ad infinitum……Only Sonia can know if she has a problem and by watching how much she drank on that yacht in St. John, well I think you know what I am saying. What I want everyone to know is that, alcoholism is a real disease where you lose your ability to make right decisions. It doesm’t make you a bad person. Hopefully she will learn from this. Sonia appears to me to be a lovely woman and I just thought I would try and send some support. If you haven’t been there, you just can’t understand the shame. Now Kelly on the other hand…whew, that girl is in complete denial if I had to give my honest opinion. and you know what they say, Denial, it not a river in egypt! Oh man I just realized, recovery people won’t get that and think I’m as nuts as she is!! Lynn, I love your blogs! I look forward to them everyday lately! I am watching the RHONY marathon right now and wow, from day one that rat Jill Zarin was the biggest BITCH I’ve ever seen! I had forgotten the first few episodes. she really is disgusting!

    • LynnNChicago says:

      Caustic, thank you for that post. I know alcholism as well having had 2 very close family members with the disease. I don’t know if Sonja is an alcoholic or if she simply has a few cocktails in social situations. In my experience, (which is different for everyone) many alcoholic’s will hide their drinking and in fact, you may not even see them drunk in public.
      I don’t hold it against her that she was drinking on the yacht, they were all drinking. (except B) They were on vacation, they weren’t driving, they were safe and were enjoying themselves. Similiarly in the Hamptons, it was a holiday weekend where Sonja had most likely been to some parties and was drinking. Nothing wrong with that, until you get behind the wheel.
      Funny, the comment that you mentioned, “this too shall pass” was also on her Facebook page, that’s where I saw that comment, so a few people had the same idea I guess.
      Thanks again for your comment and Congratulations to you, that is an amazing accomplishment!!!

      • causticbroad says:

        Lynn, I love you and I don’t even know you! 🙂 But I feel like I do from reading your thoughts everyday! You are a doll! wish I could be there for the Alex/Simon cocktail party but I am sweating it out here in South Florida! Thanks again Lynn. YOU are a class act!

  25. LynnNChicago says:

    I think we’ve all seen this video, but Bethenny tweeted this and posted the video on her web site, I think she is trying to tell us something….

    Bethenny: in case you missed it – talked to @accesshollywood about rhony. http://ow.ly/1TIf9

    • Lolo says:

      I wouldn’t stay if I were her. Why?? To let Kelly and Jill yell at her some more? Not worth the money.

    • Fabulous Earth says:

      you know she’s right, RHONY has had its run and Bravo should work on other installments (if any, cuz clearly they’ve crossed some major lines regarding ethics). B should leave RHONY, do her show and continue her brand. Ramona’s good with her products and such. Alex and Simon has their book, their careers and could probably do well with some type of blog. Luann will most likely marry money again and try to milk the social scene for all its worth. Kelly’s career has been destroyed I think…whatever contracts she had outside of RHONY may wither away and die. Jill….well…she’ll keep a check coming in from Perez as she slithers into whatever social scene she can get into and feed him gossip.

      • ImToula says:

        I think that Bethany is trying to tell us that things turned violent on the trip. The host asks her the question and says” glass being broken “something like that. Bethany says we saw a 4 but the events were a 10. Later on when they talk about the reunion Bethany says something about slapping and hitting. The first time, she didn’t correct the host when he suggested that things were thrown and broken and then again she talks about violence. Am I reading too much between the lines?

  26. Kelly-Has-Big-Shoulders says:

    Does anyone know what was it that Bethenny said about Gwen Paltrow?
    I think Kelly might have met Paltrow at some fashion event they she said hello and now Kelly thinks that Paltrow is her BFF. LMAO!!!

  27. Kat says:

    Great blog Lynn.
    I’ve been catching up on posts.
    I’m taking Sudafed and Benadryl for allergies gone wrong. I hate how the meds make me feel, edgy and pissy. I’m looking forward to the show.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      Kat,

      Edgy & Pissy…you came to the right place LOL
      Feel better xo

      • DarkSonnet says:

        LOL!! Yes, that sounds like the Anti-fans of JZ Mantra.

        All kidding aside, I hope you feel better, Kat. Allergies are a real beast.

        Have you tried Zyrtec? It doesn’t make you feel drowsy and wonky like the Benedryl. Generic Walmart Zyrtec works great and you get some cost savings.

        • Kat says:

          I use the diphenhydramine (benadyrl) for the cough. I am actually getting a sinus infection and it turns into bronchitis for me… TMI sorry. I am a smoker.

          But thank you.

      • Kat says:

        Thank you very much.

    • A former Jill fan says:

      Sympathies to you Kat re your allergies. I can’t take benadryl (except for extremely bad flare ups and allergic reactions) because it usually knocks me out for awhile and it makes me feel too drugged up and prevents me from being 100% functional. I hate that!

      I have to take allegra D every day and still try to avoid things that set it off. it helps greatly, but doesn’t alleviate all the symptoms.

      • Kat says:

        Oh, I feel drugged alright. LOL We have the air on and the windows closed so I dunno.
        If my head explodes it was Jill Zarin’s fault. I may be allergic to bullsh*t and between her and Kelly cows must be crying across America. 8)

  28. iceNfire says:

    RP=Repost? lol

    I think we are all pretty much pissed about the TV guide article so let’s let everyone know. Bravo cannot be counted on as far as listening to viewers go.
    Plan is to email TV Guide and as many others as you like.
    Then post on every blog and facebook you can think of like we did with petition. Just copy and paste the following:

    We, the viewers of Real Housewives of New York are fed up with Jill Zarin and the way she is portrayed in the press and on TV. Just last night she was on EXTRA promoting a book that is well known to be garbage. A. Chandle the #1 reviewer at Amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/review/RA5UPKPM4DJAK has been threatened and harrassed by Jill Zarin. Jill Zarin has written positive reviews for her own book under fake names while posting negative reviews to her castmate’s books. She also has a history of doing this with the Fabric store her husband owns.
    Please keep this woman off TV and out of the press. It is time for her to pay the consequences for her actions.
    Thank You,
    Housewives viewers

  29. Jennifer says:

    Great blog Lynn! Thanks
    excited for tonight

    Kelly is annoying me w tweets today claiming her PSA Huge hit b/ c plp watching it … What she fails to realize they are watching it so they can make fun of her….
    People mag had a great comment on it today basically from someone who knew Pheobe Price ( the girl who hung herself from bullying) and she trashed Kelly for making basically mocking a serious issue …… Thought it was legit point

    • PFinFL says:

      Someone needs to send Kelly that article. I think she is using the “bullying” as a crutch for her bad behavior. Okay….insane behavior.

    • DarkSonnet says:

      It is a very legit point to make. Bullying and Domestic Violence go hand in hand and are very serious societal issues of today. Until you work in the field, you have no idea of the widening scope of these issues.

      Without realizing it, most of us commenting here know a person who has been the victim of one or more of these issues. When I say “know”, you may not realize that this is happening to them, but you are acquainted with the person themselves.

      Both are insidious and pervasive issues and they can be difficult to control and overcome. In some instances they are familial based, sometimes societal, but in both instances frequently the offender does not admit/see that what they are doing is terribly wrong. The blame is placed on the victim.

      Both are issue based on control and manipulation by vicious means.

      (stepping off soapbox now… sorry for the rant)

      • DarkSonnet says:

        “based on the need to control”

        sorry

    Rerun episode 2 Labor Day weekend party at Ramona’s and Bethenny is talking about how vulnerable she was last summer…mentions breakup with Jason then B said she couldn’t pay her rent.

    Anyone know what’s up with that?

    • Just a Commoner says:

      Pretty sure she was being facetious. She makes cracks like that all the time. They are not to be taken literally.

      • Nancyusa says:

        Thanks

        Not sure is she was kidding…she was on the verge of crying.

        • Just a Commoner says:

          I don’t remember the clip but I would bet that she was more upset at the breakup with Jason I than anything. Money may have been tight too but she was really nuts about Jason, I think, and it must have been a pretty rough time for that reason alone.

  33. Kokuanani says:

    Lynn, I have a question for you for Alex & Simon — and it doesn’t involve “spoilers.”

    What can we, the viewers, do to support Alex & Simon and to show our complete disgust with Jill & Kelly? Does the “take Jill off the show” petition have any effect, or do the Bravo PTB just regard it as “good publicity”?

    Because Bravo censors comments to its blogs so heavily, and because the Nazi Strega has closed down the TWOP board, there are very few venues for viewers to make their thoughts known.

    Perhaps, as we suspect, Bravo is so amoral it just doesn’t care, and regards any publicity as good publicity, but I’d think that somewhere there — especially in “sponsorland” — someone does care about what viewers think.

    Just thought this might be a fruitful line of questioning with them, and perhaps something they don’t hear at every venue.

    You will racing right to your computer after the event, to write it up for all of us, right? No sleep for you!!!!

    • DarkSonnet says:

      One of the more effective ways to be heard is to contact sponsors, addressing the issue in a responsible way. (Such as core values the company represents vs. the product/show they are sponsoring)

      Companies listen, they protect their brand.

      • Fabulous Earth says:

        VERY TRUE!

      • Fabulous Earth says:

        Anyone have a list of sponsors for RHONY (and RHONJ while we’re at it)? We could do a form letter like Lynn posted and just flood their inbox or mail them out. I’m sure that would make a riff and get Bravo to do something. Also, how many fans do you think (in numbers) are truly in disgust to do something like this?

    • Anitabee says:

      I so agree with you.

      Is it just me or is Jill the buzzkill on a new vendetta against Alex? This c-u-next-tuesday always has to have someone that she claims is out to destroy her.

      First it was Bethenny until she realized that Bethenny was WAY more popular than her and Jill would look like the bad guy. So now she is after Alex because she caught Kelly’s whackadoodleness and thinks that Alex is the reason that Jill was treated so badly by the BRAS (Bethenny, Ramona, Alex & Sonja).

      Now that I think about it Jill probably gave Kelly “whackadoodle-itus”.

      I am on team Silex and I HATE JILL ZARIN!

      • Hooked On Housewives says:

        @Anitabee

        I’m still reading but had to stop and mention c-u next tuesday. Love it. To me Jill will always be a c*nt. Thanks for the laugh.

        • Anitabee says:

          Most welcome, my dear.

          Jill Zarin IS the webster’s dictionary definition of a “C – U- Next – Tuesday.”

          and yes, I HATE JILL ZARIN!

  34. Olivia says:

    From the amount of time spent by Kelly on Twitter, and Jill running all over God’s creation to qualify her behavior this season, it is clear that neither has any intention of changing.

    Their campaign is based on changing the viewers perceptions by making false claims of bullying, editing, and misunderstanding.

    They are not about to change. They expect us to do it.

      • RileyKitty says:

        No it isn’t just you. She is the “Jill” of the Atlanta cast. She thinks she is the star of the show. Remember Kim’s song wasn’t going anywhere since she wasn’t on it.

        • Fabulous Earth says:

          you know what Riley? For the life of me I thought it was only me!!!! I loved Nene the first season but got turned off real fast in the second. I didn’t care too much for the other ladies but in my mind, she made it worth watching and I decided to watch the second season…I was ghost though midway.

          • jb8 says:

            Most people loved Nene the first season, but then she got the big head, like Jill, and became her own worst nightmare. I guess it follows the formula…

      • Char12 says:

        Jill and Kelly are so eaten up with jealousy that Bethanny got her own show and they didn’t which explains all the crap they have said lately. Jill says jealousy isn’t in her nature which is a bunch of bullshit. Not only that they probably know that Alex and Simon and Ramona will most likely be on B’s show, once in awhile at least, which gives them more airtime then them and it’s driving them crazier still. Jill wants to be a big star so bad she can taste it. She sees herself making movies someday and hanging with Julia Roberts, appearing on Oprah and the whole chabang. She dreams of it and it consumes her. She even sees herself getting a star on the walk of fame in Hollywood. I bet when she started RHONY she thought it was her foot in the door and was about to be discovered. HA HA Jill! The Jokes on YOU!

        Like the others Lynn, thanks so much for this blog. Have a great time with Simon and Alex and give them a hug for me. I can’t wait to hear all about it. I’d love to see pictures so I hope you can post them in here. You will take pics WON’T YOU 🙂

        We’ll all meet here later after the show. Right ladies?

    watching the rerun where bethenny tells everyone she is engaged at that party. Bethenny walks in & tells Kelly she looks pretty & instead of saying thank you, you do too. She says I always look pretty. narcissism much? How did I miss that nugget on my first (or even fifth) watch?

    Hi guys!

    Just a drive-by (deadline day for me — well, just a small surf break), but wanted to post this link about a Wash Post blogger and a pissing contest she’s in with Bravo over a planned interview with the Salahis (the trash who crashed the White House dinner). Anyway, interesting to see how Bravo operates. Try to cut and paste link. That works for me — I can’t get it to turn blue.

    • RileyKitty says:

      good lord!! I am making a stand right now to not watch DC. I cannot support the White House crash trash.

      • Fabulous Earth says:

        you and me both. But seriously, after this season, I’m not watching any Housewives series further. I enjoyed the “crazy”, the blogs, the messageboards and even linking up with some of the cast members via FB, twitter, etc, but that’s enough for me. I’m gonna take all I’ve learned and enhance my own life, thank you.

    • Had Enough! says:

      Just FYI, she’s not with the Washington Post. She’s a DC socialite who owns a bar/restaurant that’s really hot with the in-crowd. She had a local interview show that she did from the bar. Her interviews were unbelievably boring and she is just your basic over-the-hill blond famewhore. Probably bitter because she didn’t get tapped for the DC gig.

      • liptontb says:

        Ooops. Sorry about the bad I.D. on the blogger. I saw info on media site that went to Wash Post then to her.
        I was fascinated by the PR types from Bravo hassling her.
        Definitely passing on the D.C. howives because of the Crash Trash.

  42. Kelly-Has-Big-Shoulders says:

    @DarkSonnet,@ Just a Commoner , Thanks for the info. 🙂

    Only confirms that JELLY KELLY needs to be locked up.

  43. Olivia says:

    A spin off show with Alex and Simon could be very interesting and far more entertaining than the Housewives franchise which seems to have run its course.

    First off, Simon comes from another country and manages a hotel in Manhattan which would be fun to watch. His background alone, plus his world travels, makes him far more interesting to watch than the Three Hyenas from the Upper East Side.

    The interaction between Alex and Simon has always been positive. They seem to actually like one another which is a rarity to behold. Their children seem to relate to them and watching Simon holding and hugging his boys increased my fondness for him.

    They just appear to be people who, if you invited to their home would make every effort to show you a good time. They know their way around the city and appear to be listening when someone else speaks which is head and shoulders above the other harpies who are much too involved with listening to themselves and talking over the other person.

    Bravo may do themselves a favor by considering Alex and Simon for a show of their own. I know that after June 17th I am pretty much done with this series as it has become more formulaic than entertaining as each franchise features the same old, same old schtick.

    Alex and Simon provided a different perspective to the series by their appearances which differed greatly with the invented drama and storyline that has no place to go now that it is finally over.

    • RileyKitty says:

      We should all lobby for an Alex & Simon spin off!!! I would totally watch it.

    ‘Real Housewives’ Bethenny Frankel: Childbirth is ‘less painful’ than Kelly, Jill is no longer in her life.

    http://blog.zap2it.com/thedishrag/2010/06/real-housewives-bethenny-frankel-childbirth-is-less-painful-than-kelly-jill-is-no-longer-in-her-life.html

    • Nancyusa says:

      Love it

      “Kelly has this whole nonsense bullying angle she’s working right now, which is idiotic because she’s a 41-year-old woman,” says Frankel. “So anything she says you can’t really even listen to because she’s out of her mind and certifiable.”

    • Nancyusa says:

      and this …go B

      “Kelly and therapy involves a shrink and a padded room. So that might not be interesting for a whole hour,” observes Frankel. “And Jill getting a hobby would probably take a little long by the time that production would get up.”

    • RileyKitty says:

      What a great find, Ice!! Thanks for posting that. Great to know Jill is not in Bethenny’s life.

      • HD says:

        THANK YOU for posting that! I was beginning to worry that Bethanny was hanging out with Jill again! THANK YOU!

        • Shadowsnomore says:

          Great article. I love Bethenny’s wit! And she confirmed three big things for me-
          1. She and Jill are not friends.
          2. Alex and Ramona are friends and the relationship is genuine.
          3. Alex and Ramona will be on her sho. NOT JILL!

          That must KILL JILL! The “all about me queen”!

  45. HD says:

    Hey you all, you don’t think Bethanny is gonna go all Star Jones for her wedding do you? I hope not.

  46. anniieee says:

    Here is a great take on tonight..and all that has gone down…re Kelly and Jill…

    http://www.realitytea.com/

    • Anitabee says:

      I think that Bethenny doesn’t take the Jillaness back.

      And it doesn’t seem like Jill has changed a all. She is still going to the press leaking stories where she looks good and the BRAS look bad. These are recent leaks within the last 2 weeks.

      Jill will NEVER learn and it’s time for her to get off the show. She is as whackadoodle as Kelly.

      Jill is beyond gross, vile and disgusting. I think we need to come up with a new term just for her.

      A word that would mean backstabber, liar, whore, media leaks, disloyal, villan, bad author, sore loser, whackadoodle, calculating, demeaning, tacky, bad dresser, bad extentions, ugly as sin, good at giving hand/blow jobs, and suffers from delusions of granduer.

      Hmmm…the only word I can think of is….JILL ZARIN AND I HATE HER. (Yes, watching today’s marathon is making me furious all over again at her tactics.)

    • anniieee says:

      He is such a fat pig… he is just jealous…

    • error 404 says:

      The irony of Perez called others “fame whore” is too rich for me, my computer almost imploded! lol

      And the whole “she’s unhealthy!” mob chant would be more effective if it was cried by chubby gossips… I’m just sayin

      • Anitabee says:

        The people leaving comments basically are telling Perez the exact same thing you have posted here. HA!

    • Anitabee says:

      Perezhilton is a friend of both Kelly and Jill.

      Bethenny called him a termite on the show (lovesit!)

      This story is odd since earlier he had posted a great job to Bethenny for losing the baby weight. I guess Kelly and Jill have the grubby dirty hands all over this one.

    • lillybee says:

      Bethenny gained an normal amount of weight for a 8 month pregnancy. I remember when a 40 lb gain was recommended. Looks like Beth came close to that goal. I don’t think she lost the weight too fast.

    “From the amount of time spent by Kelly on Twitter, and Jill running all over God’s creation to qualify her behavior this season, it is clear that neither has any intention of changing.”

    Maybe this is a partial explanation of their abhorrent behavior:

    Jill and Kelly are proud graduates of the Attila the Hun School of Barbaric Social Interaction which includes the following philosophy:

    “When attacked, they will sometimes engage in regular battle. Then, going into the fight in order of columns, they fill the air with varied and discordant cries. More often, however, they fight in no regular order of battle, but by being extremely swift and sudden in their movements, they disperse, and then rapidly come together again in loose array, spread havoc over vast plains, and flying over the rampart, they pillage the camp of their enemy almost before he has become aware of their approach.”

    Jill loudly claims to be a summa cum laude graduate of the program and mentioned that she gave Attila the idea to expand the campus.

    Kelly, although she only attended the General Studies program, claims to be a very close personal friend of Attila, known to his friends as Scourge of God. Kelly calls him Scurry.

    Possible?

      In my business life it has been my extreme dospleasure to have run across many graduates of The Attila the Hun School of Barbaric Social Interaction. I do believe you left out one important behavior taught at this renowned school.

      Always keep the shit going. Never let the shit rest. Always insure that the clique keeps hating on the victim(s). When possible do these things using very loud vocals.

      • DarkSonnet says:

        Or completely follow Attila’s philosophy and just decapitate and disembowel them while using war cries.

        Oh wait… that is one in the same, isn’t it? ;o)

    • Just a Commoner says:

      Possible? No! Definite!

    Alex on B’s show…no wonder Jill is going after Alex! This must be making Jill totally insane. Poor Babbbbby.

  49. Hooked On Housewives says:

    Wonderful blog (as usual) Lynn. Loved all the posts (again, as usual). Lynn, although neither Simon nor Alex know me from Adam’s house cat please give them my best regards
    .
    I’m at the point where I believe that the head harpy will be back if there is another season. Bravo loves controversy and drama. To me it seems likely the shrew harpy famewhore Jill will be back. My fondest wish is for Jillousy to become a non entity on RHWONYC. I hope season 4 revolves around Alex, Simon, Ramona, Sonja with B stopping by Alex’s home or attending events with Alex, Simon Ramona, Mario and Sonja. I would like to make appearances by Jason part of the wish but I understand he is not all that comfortable with the show. If any of what I wish comes to pass, just who will be in Jill’s fabulous circle of “people?” LuMann will be busy with her new toyboy. Kellamity will hopefully be on lockdown. Who will she run with? Oh yeah. Patti Stanker. But would that be a conflict of interest? Doesn’t Jill run the casting department and the PR dept for MM. That Jillousy is just so f*cking important. NOT.

    Now Bravo you can take it from here. Do your job

    • Fabulous Earth says:

      whatever Brad *eyeroll*

      Brad is just another insufferable airhead pimping up a flower line that he must have some close association with.

      Do these people ever give it a rest for 5 minutes? Buy this, buy that, here is the link. Make me rich! Make me relevant! Make me famous!

    • DarkSonnet says:

      Okay Bradley Bore. He can now return to the rock he has been hiding under this entire season.

      Brad said: “Trust me, this is one of the best tips as I believe flowers keep us young!”

      He must have buried himself in a greenhouse then, because he doesn’t even look like himself. Yes, flowers and a surgeon, Brad.

      Gag.

    • Kokuanani says:

      Well that’s however many minutes of my life I’ll never get back.

      What an idiot!!! And selling flowers?????

      Sheesh, almost goes with the horrid “party” [at Sonja’s] that’s on the repeat episode currently re-running.

      Every time Jill in on, she proves AGAIN what a rotten person she is. You’d think that she’d wise up and want to be OFF the air. Just shows that she’s delusional: thinking that seeing MORE of her is going to make people LIKE her.

      Oh, ick. “Coming up” on the current re-run is LuAnn’s slimeball “date.”

      • Shadowsnomore says:

        I wonder how much or what Jill payed him for that plug? Can’t say I missed him on the show and can’t say I want him back as well!

    • The Digger says:

      They let him from out the Zarin Fabrics basement for this DREK? All these freaking people are like one giant infomercial. Oh, I am SO running off to order that flower arrangement. Immediately. Hey BRAD, wtf happened to your face? I want answers.

  51. Olivia says:

    My loathing for Jill was slowly building but it commenced at the Creaky Joints party when she told Bethenny to leave for reasons that were ridiculous. Bethenny had managed to get $20,000 worth of liquor donated on her behalf. The signage should never have been an issue in the first place.

    When she left Bethenny weeping in the street it seemed that Bethenny’s reaction to the rejection was totally real. Cutting back to Horror Jill and Snake Lu Ann who proudly pronounced Bethenny as “scary” while listening in on an open call, finished it off for me. Their mutual delight in what had just transpired was putrid.

    As Bethenny appealed to Jill at Ramona’s apartment there was an air of “victory” surrounding Jill who had the trump card in her hands to make or break her down and she succeeded. By this action it was more than apparent that Jill Zarin is one nasty piece of work.

    Who in their right mind would be willing to forgive the destruction of Bethenny in the press instigated by Jill, or the playing of a private phone message to anyone willing to listen? Who could forgive the constant jabs and unyielding behavior when someone is making a series of attempts to talk it out? Who can forgive the rush to publish a birth announcement when the baby had yet to be born just to be credited with the scoop?

    Her actions are unforgivable and she should never be given another opportunity to edge herself into Bethenny’s life.

    • Hooked On Housewives says:

      @Olivia
      Her actions are unforgivable and she should never be given another opportunity to edge herself into Bethenny’s life.

      Well said and so very true.

      • Anitabee says:

        You’re right I do remember that now. No one does Bethenny forgive Jill again. Bethenny knows what a lunatic Jill can become. No one wants that sort of drama in her life.

        Still – I don’t forgive LuAnn for her part at Ramona’s attempt to bring them together. Why does LuAnn care? Jill certainly is no prize. I give Jill 3 months before she starts attacking LuAnn for moving forward in her life without her.

        • shantygal says:

          Agreed Anitabee. I’ve been saying that for a while now, that LuAnn will distance herself from Jill & start living like the newly divorced woman she is. I bet going out on the town with her & Sonja is a hoot.

          Doesn’t mean I like LuAnn, but I think she could be a lot of fun if she’s not around the she-devil. Watching the reruns today, she really is a snake. She’s been dissing Kelly all season long and that idiot just keeps taking it.

    • DarkSonnet says:

      I totally agree with your very well written comments.

      Unfortunately, she will take any opportunity to continue her cowardly destruction of Bethenny and possibly, Alex. She can’t walk away.

      I don’t think there is any chance she will ever be in Bethenny’s life. Between her insidious actions and Baawwby’s performance on the island, I think that ship has sailed off the edge of the earth.

    • Nancyusa says:

      B called her on the the boy baby on facebook

      Zarin also famously — and inaccurately — congratulated the new mom on Facebook for giving birth to a boy. Oops.

      “My honest reaction was she can’t get out of her own way and it wasn’t like she had to pick the winner of the Kentucky Derby,” says Frankel with her signature sarcasm. “All she had to do was do the 50-50 [thing] and she still didn’t get it right.”

  52. realminkey says:

    Hi all. Have been on a forced blogging haitus due to some time-consuming family turmoil around here. Just letting you know I’ve been scanning and loving Lynn’s blog as much as possible, and look forward to tonight, although it’s the reunion that I can’t wait for. Thank God for Jill Zarin… Hating her has allowed me to vent my frustations. I HATE JILL ZARIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YIPEEE!!! Ahhh, I feel so much better now.

  53. Kelly-Has-Big-Shoulders says:

    Did Brad just write a jab at Alex & Simon? WTF!

    • Fabulous Earth says:

      yes he did…he’s trying to come off as not taking sides but it’s very clear where he stands and his motivation.

      lol@ rumors of him and Bawby!!!!

      He’s cunning like Jill and I wouldn’t be surprised if it was actually him who wrote the Amazon reviews with Jill looking over his shoulder…ugh!

  54. Sofi says:

    I do enjoy all the information I pick up on this site and am slightly embarrassed that I love to hate Jill so much, but it is not fair to say that she stole her husband from his first wife. There is a ten-year-old article about older singles in the New York Times archives that quotes Bawby. He was apparently single for years before he got with Jill.

    • Fabulous Earth says:

      Thank you for this. It reminds us to don’t ALWAYS believe the worst just because we dislike someone. Thanks again for sharing this!

  55. desertgal66 says:

    GO, Bethenny! I’m glad she spoke out. Good for her.

    I expect that viewer ratings will drop next season if Jill and Kelly return. I know, if they do, I’ll be watching Bethenny’s show and not RHoNY. I’d rather see Ramona and Alex on B’s show, anyway-much more fun than watching the three bitchutantes swan around Manhattan doing absolutely nothing.

  56. Hooked On Housewives says:

    From Brad Boles

    On Alex McCord:
    “Alex and Simon dropped off the planet when they didn’t see me in Season 3. Guess I’m not on their A list. I’m not sure what was really happening with them this season anyway as were most people who were confused, to say the least.”

    I’m not trying to be catty. Well maybe I am. In so many words is he saying that Alex and Simon didn’t fax. e-mail, twit or stop by his home so they are no good? Please. You may not want to come right and say it Mr Boles but probably the only reason you weren’t on this season was because the head harpy didn’t want you there. It’s that simple. Don’t know if you’re trying to mend fences with Jillousy by trying to sh*t on her enemy of the moment, but give it a rest. You ain’t that important. We ain’t listening. Yes. I wrote ain’t Brad. Deal with it.

    • DarkSonnet says:

      Sounds like Jill has loaded another gun and pointed it in the direction of Alex.

      Surprise, surprise. What an immature, narcissistic bully.

      I want a “Ralphie” to come out of the shadows and beat the crap out of her.

  57. nynotes says:

    I had a DUI nearly twenty years ago and it definitely wasn’t fun. I feel for Sonja, but someone with her resources should have a driver or she could have simply hailed a cab. However, I do realize when under the influence, making bad decisions are inevitable…

    She probably didn’t take a Breathalyzer because she didn’t want the number to be leaked to the press. Getting charged with drunk-driving is one thing, getting charged with drunk-driving and blowing a .21 is another thing… New York state law is .08.

    I like Sonja Morgan, but that line about her being the straw that stirs the drink is obnoxious. She isn’t Reggie Jackson of the Yankees circa 1977…

    • Need a Hobby says:

      That line was written about Sonja in an article or book years ago. (It–and the origin—was recently cited in an article about Sonja.) She’s quoting it but didn’t originate it, obnoxious or not.

  58. Had Enough! says:

    Four hours to go and I’m already nauseous. Seriously. I have a headache, I am nauseous, and I need a good cry. I don’t think I can watch this program tonight. When we are watching TV and something scary comes on, I look away and tell my husband to tell me when it’s over. I don’t think that’s going to work for a program that is an entire hour of horror.

    No, I’m not kidding. I get really upset watching this program. It used to be a little bit funny, and I could enjoy hating Jill because it was like revenge on the obnoxious, pretentious, self-centered bitches who I’d dealt with in my life. But it has gotten to be too much to take. And hating Kelly is no fun at all. She is pure evil, with a soupcon of crazy and a huge dollop of stoooooooooooooopidity. Just an oxygen thief. Were she just useless, that would be bad enough. But she’s so so awful, evil, oh shit, I am going to frow up!

    • MELANIE says:

      @had enough I always DVR it then I watch it in snippets so I can stomach it.Then watch it again and begin to see and hear things I may have missed thru the original agony of it all.

    • Fabulous Earth says:

      Seriously? I don’t think you should watch then. Maybe just read the blogs later.

      Hmmm. I wonder if one can sue a network for addiction and mental/physical illness? I know one can easily say turn it off, like they say of cigarette smoking, but really can it be done? I’m serious, I would like to know if any viewer has taken this route or tried to with any series or show.

  60. Bravo fan says:

    Now I have seen it all. Kelly has a picture on twitter of a sillybanz. For anyone w/o kids, these are shaped rubberbands that is the rage for kids. Now this woman needs a hobby. Does she work? Maybe she is out on disability for mental instability.

    • Fabulous Earth says:

      I think Kelly is addicted to the attention from twitter. Anyone know her work situation? Does she still have her column? Modeling contracts?

      • DarkSonnet says:

        Hell to the no! Her modeling contracts have been long gone.

        I was expecting something entirely different when I popped up the picture of the sillybanz.

        My first thought was “that idiot squirted mustard on her hand!”

  63. Anitabee says:

    Ok – just watched the episode where Perezpiglet leaks Bethenny’s pregnancy news.

    Hmmm…I know I might be wrong BUT given the amount of current bad press or lies in the press regarding Bethenny, I strongly believe that Jill is behind all of this.

    And I just caught how it is Jill that calls LuAnn and Sonja looking for gossip about Bethenny’s news. Yeah right, Bravo like I am going to believe Jill had no idea until she got a google alert.

    She gives herself away by stating that she had been contacted by several media agencies about this news. You know after the first one contacted her, she turned around and called Perez Hilton and leaked the news to her “friend”.

    I hold Jill responsible for this and in NO WAY should Bethenny ever forgive Jill. And neither should the viewers. Jill dealt way too many low blows to Bethenny and continues to do so.

    Get this C-U-Next-Tuesday off the show!!! Or I hope I’m there when karma comes back to bite her in her size 8 ass.

    1. A drama queen
    2. Wealthy and connected
    3. The former wife of; a Count, heir to a banking fortune or The Best Photographer ever.

    • Shadowsnomore says:

      Great article! I’ve liked them from the very beginning. I always felt there was more depth to them than what was shown. They are quirky but in a fun way. I like that they make no apologies for who they are.

    • DarkSonnet says:

      Interesting article – I wasn’t aware that the book would be going into its second printing this summer.

      Congrats to Simon and Alex on your literary success!

    Not for nothin’ but I’d love to get my hands on the full version of the VI trip. Where are the leaks from the Bravo staff???

    When I was knee deep in addiction to The Wire, we managed to find the last few episodes leaked online. They must run a tight ship over there at Bravo *sigh*

  77. Char12 says:

    Jill and Kelly are so eaten up with jealousy that Bethanny got her own show and they didn’t which explains all the crap they have said lately. Jill says jealousy isn’t in her nature which is a bunch of bullshit. Not only that they probably know that Alex and Simon and Ramona will most likely be on B’s show, once in awhile at least, which gives them more airtime then them and it’s driving them crazier still. Jill wants to be a big star so bad she can taste it. She sees herself making movies someday and hanging with Julia Roberts, appearing on Oprah and the whole chabang. She dreams of it and it consumes her. She even sees herself getting a star on the walk of fame in Hollywood. I bet when she started RHONY she thought it was her foot in the door and was about to be discovered. HA HA Jill! The Jokes on YOU!

    Like the others Lynn, thanks so much for this blog. Have a great time with Simon and Alex and give them a hug for me. I can’t wait to hear all about it. I’d love to see pictures so I hope you can post them in here. You will take pics WON’T YOU 🙂

    We’ll all meet here later after the show. Right ladies?

    (somehow this post ended up under someones reply so I pasted it here again. I’ll get this figured out someday 🙂

    So Kelly says she called her agent and had a big conference with the producers because she said she was leaving the island after the first lunch (when she couldn’t open the door)

    • Fabulous Earth says:

      Can you say “lawsuit”? (if it’s true of course)

      • DarkSonnet says:

        Please tell me you didn’t just say “if it’s true” where Kelly is concerned… ;o)

        Because then we might have to revoke your ticket to the finale show tonight.

        Kelly is incapable of telling the truth. Each day I fully expect that she will be telling us that black lab is a white poodle. Yep.

  79. RileyKitty says:

    I think I finally get it. KELLY never had a one night stand. She just had some really short relationships, the guys in those relationships were having a one night stand.

  80. Imseasquared says:

    It all makes sense now. Here in Boston, was wondering why it got so insufferably muggy and uncomfortable followed by a reigning down of God’s wrath…..the arrival of Jill. What a twat!

  81. viki55 says:

    LOL

    • viki55 says:

      oh my, my response was to RileyKitty. Lurking on an old laptop while I watch the show and having trouble navigating. It could also be the 2 glass of wine;)

      • Fabulous Earth says:

        viki, are you watching online? if so where? I’m out of the country and would sooo love to watch it when it airs tonight.

    Simon answers tweet about lynnchicago

    I will find out 4sure Saturday, but I think I see a softening in her blogs recently to more pity & less hate.

    I just want to say this, Kelly Bensimon is not only crazy she is one of the most insipid people to ever appear on tv and that is saying a lot when you pit her against Theresa from NJ. Incredibly stupid and an @sshole on top of that.

    Between chores I have had the Housewives marathon playing in the background and though she and Bethenny had some issues over the “Madonna” reference and the “up here, down there” encounter, it seems that she is completely overlooking the rotten comments that were said to her face by Loser Lu Ann, Jealous Jill, and Raging Ramona.

    They have called her childish, stupid, told her to shut up, ignored her, made fun of her wardrobe, and pretty much trashed her during many of their headshots. So if she was that upset with Bethenny, how does one excuse the other three for doing the same or worse and whom she now considers her “best friends”. Does not make sense.

    True, Bethenny let loose with a couple of zingers but Kelly is too stupid to even pick up that Lu Ann in particular has let her have it in an condescending tone that anyone paying attention is able to pick up.

    It is becoming more difficult with each showing of these broadcasts to figure out who I despise more: Jill or Lu Ann. Forked tongued snakeheads. How does Kelly not see or hear their comments when she does appear lucid at some choice moments of filming?

    BUT I STILL HATE JILL ZARIN! (Along with Lu Ann running as first runner up.)

  84. otaypanky says:

    wow…two more hours.

    well, according to jill, she gives another smackdown to alex by refusing to speak with her yet again at the renewal ceremony when approached.

    • RileyKitty says:

      That Jill, she is so clever!!! IMO a smackdown requires a verbal beatdown. Just ignoring someone or declining to speak to them does not a smackdown make. I bet Alex was just devastated. LOL

  85. Fabulous Earth says:

    Kelly just confuses the hell out of me…if she’s really mental then it wasn’t fair Bravo did this to her and they should be held accountable. Who and where are her handlers????

  86. iceNfire says:

    otay- I never got the full Phil Harris, did he die at sea?

  87. iceNfire says:

    Now I understand why Jill tweeted about going to Boston, she doesn’t want to do talk bubble!

    mccordalex
    Thanks @GoGoInFlight for supplying the wireless for us to Talk Bubble @Bravotv from 30,000 feet for the #realhousewives finale tonight!

  88. iceNfire says:

    LOL @ me – not a red head at all!
    Kat – Did Phil Harris die at sea? I saw Sig being interviewed but only caught the end of it.

    • Kat says:

      I read he was off loading crab, so technically not at sea.

    • The Digger says:

      Phil was off the boat for 11 months recovering from a blood clot and this was his first season back on the boat. He was offloading but was set to go back out fishing, so technically he was working but was temporarily in port, luckily. He did not watch RHONY… can you imagine? But Zig is a closet fan 🙂

  89. patricia henderson says:

    my only comment on her tweets is kelly wearing a sequinned mini to the beach and then straight to a party. hope she had undies on and deodorant and after playing on beach, whiff, might me a NICE comment. tell nalex and simon thet i wish i were there.

  90. realminkey says:

    Just re-watched Jill Zarin get her fat ass up that private plane staircase (the plane with no bathroom and no water). Size 1? Size 2? Not likely!

  91. Kelly-Has-Big-Shoulders says:

    Almost time I am so anxious.

  92. Beckett says:

    Good evening, ladies. I am mostly a lurker here because, as Bethenny described Alex, I am a wallflower. However, I feel the need to scream. I figured since you people are so nice that you wouldn’t mind.

    I realized today, while watching the RHONY marathon, that I must be a masochist. It is torture watching this shit. Most of the season we watch KKB just being too stupid to live. This before we know that she is also Fucking Nuts! Watching her trail after JZ, tongue lolling, tail wagging, makes me want to slap someone….er, something. (no offense to our four legged friends. I live with four of them)

    And JZ isn’t nice to ANYONE. She’s almost as horrible to her friends as she is to her enemies. How does she get away with behaving that way? It seems that no one, aside from Bethenny and Alex, can see what’s happening (or they do and are too stupid to make the right decision concerning with whom to align themselves)

    And Luman, Who the Hell made you the final word on behavior? Look in the mirror, Bitch. How dare you get in Alexis’ face about her expressing her disdain for JZ?

    Oh and JZ? The word forward has 2 Rs. FORWARD. Nor Foward. 4 ward. Moron. (sorry, personal peeve)

    SO…..Shut the fuck up, Jill. Shut the fuck up, Kelly. Shut the fuck up, Luman. (Big Exhale…….) Can you tell that I fortified myself, in anticipation of tonight’s festivities, with a nice single malt? I will now go stand in the corner.

    Um, one more thing. Lynn, love your blog. I look forward to lurking every day. Hope this weekend is everything you want it to be. 🙂

  93. Robin says:

    What happened to innocent til proven guilty? I think I will reserve my opinion until the facts are out there.Notice that I didn’t say judgement? I am not in the position to judge anyone,that should be reserved for something much bigger than myself.

    Take Care,Robin

  94. Squirrels says:

    OK. THAT would have been really painful, but I have a mute button. It’s the little things in life we must appreciate.

  95. deehub says:

    Help! I can never catch up. I leave and new blogs!!!

  96. Cyn says:

    I just watched the meeting between Bethenny and Jill-ella (rhymes with Cruella). Jill’s spouting and boo-hooing about how she did things the wrong way and she wants to change (and blames Alex for everything). you can tell Beth had no intention of returning to that friendship, because Jill cannot be trusted. But here’s what’s going to happen next season. Jill’s going to force herself to be nice to Bethenny, and then it’s going to hit her that Bethenny doesn’t want a thing to do with her. And Jill’s gonna snap back to her old self like a rubber band that’s been pulled to the max. And she’s going to be more vile than ever. It will be disgusting to watch, but for Bravo, it will be great TV.

    And Ramona – “I will always love you, Jill..???” has she WATCHED the past episodes where Jill had trashed Ramona over and over and over? Ramona, honey – give UP the abusive friendships!

    And does anyone have a Kelly-to-English dictionary? It reminds me of high school reading Romeo and Juliet in Old English. There was a dictionary of phrases that you could refer to – otherwise the play made little sense.

    NOT that I would associated Kelly with Shakespeare. lol
