I Hate Jill Zarin The Finale June 4, 2010

I Hate Jill Zarin                   The Finale           June 4, 2010

I must say first that I thoroughly enjoyed tonight’s episode, it had a little bit of everything and concluded with all of the crazy ladies together looking great. 

Overall I cannot think of any other show on television that I enjoy as much as I enjoy the Real Housewives of New York.  Each week the shows are highly anticipated, each week we hungrily search and share every tidbit of news we can find about the show and these ladies.  We spend hours talking about them and loving them, hating them, how many shows can you really say that about? 

I know that there are other reality shows that have similar discussion sites like, Survivor, Dancing With The Stars, and many others, but for me, I couldn’t get better entertainment than RHONY.  Week after week they brought the drama, fun and of course..hatred. 

I was so proud of Bethenny at the lunch with Jill.  She never backed down yet she did get emotional.  I could see that Bethenny did care about Jill at some point or she would have been much colder and maybe the lunch would never have happened.  It seemed to me that while Jill did actually say the words, “I’m sorry”, she didn’t feel it and she didn’t mean it because the word after “I’m sorry” was “but” as she went on to explain her horrible behavior.  I’m surprised she didn’t say, “I didn’t have my notes”. 

What Jill did say was she never gossiped about Bethenny.  Is she serious?  We watched her in episode one tell all those people on the boat about Bethenny’s voice mail message, we saw her talking endlessly to Luann about Bethenny.  At Perez Hilton’s party Jill was talking about Bethenny’s verbal assault on Luann even though she wasn’t even there!  Jill spent the entire season gossiping about Bethenny!  Jill is a lying piece of shit!  Bethenny hit the nail on the head when she told Jill that she never accepts responsibility for her actions. 

Jill clearly is never going to change and it was almost as if the light bulb that went off in Bethenny months ago, grew brighter when Jill called Alex “toxic”.  What Jill managed to do when she said that was to solidify Bethenny’s decision to keep Jill out of her life.  Bethenny has said it before, Jill always seems to have to have that one person that she blames for everything, she has to hate someone at all times in order for her life to be complete.  When Jill realized she had taken it too far with Bethenny and wanted her back, she moved all of the hate inside of her onto Alex. 

What had Alex really done wrong?  Yes, Alex admitted that her “message” to Jill could have been delivered in a more appropriate way, but the message would still be the same.  She said it in front of all of the other ladies, hello!  You’re on television, those other ladies were going to see it, hear it along with the rest of the world, so in the end, is it that big of a deal?  Jill was also angry with Alex for her response to Ramona in the Virgin Islands when Jill strutted in.  Should Alex have lied?  I believe that was the most real we’ve seen Alex all season.  That reaction was real, the emotion was real, the anger was real and who can blame her.

Jill is treating Alex the exact same way that she treated Bethenny.  Jill won’t even pause long enough to hear what Alex has to say to her.  We watched Alex try again and again to talk to Jill, to clear the air and hash it out.  Jill is shutting Alex out, just as she shut Bethenny out in her many attempts to try to make things right with Jill. 

The difference is that Jill doesn’t care about Alex the same way she cares about Bethenny.  Jill thought she could get public sympathy against Bethenny, what a fool!  She also thinks that she will get any Alex haters on her side even now.  Jill is in the press bashing Alex, she really is a complete moron.  Doesn’t Jill read anything about her show?  We know she watches the show, we know she sees how close Alex has become with Bethenny.  Jill is enraged by the support for Alex.  Jill has tried her best to get Alex off the show even starting rumors that Alex and Simon would be leaving the show. 

No one has any idea who will or won’t be on the show next season.  Personally I believe that a lot is going to depend on how Bethenny’s new show does and whether or not it will be picked up for a second season.  Bethenny left the door open for her return and while she never connected it with her new show, I think that if her show is not picked up, she will return to RHONY, at least in some capacity.  I bet If she isn’t on full time, she will probably at least make some appearances. 

Luann’s song was just an attack on all of the senses!  We have all heard it before even if we couldn’t sit through the entire thing.  At least on the internet we can click on Stawwwwp!  The ladies are all being kind and saying how much they love the song.  Luann is given credit for living her dream…blah blab blah.  Luann is just not a likeable character, unfortunately that is not a character she is playing on TV, that is the real Luann.  She is condescending and rude!  I cannot stand that woman.  Looking back she wasn’t all that bad in Season one, but this has all gone to her head and it is clear to me that she feels like she is better than other people and that makes me want to vomit! 

Did anyone else notice how Jill tried to make Alex look bad for not showing up at Luann’s launch party?  Jill only mentioned Alex, yet Ramona and Bethenny failed to show up to support Luann.  Can you blame any of them?  Luann didn’t show up for the VI trip in support of Ramona, she reprimanded Alex at Sonja’s like a child for her delivery of “the message” (she was so condescending!)  and it is clear to me that Bethenny cannot stomach the woman!  Bethenny is perfectly correct, Luann is not the same person as she was Season one and she hasn’t improved herself, she has become a snake!  Of course, Jill didn’t bother to mention anyone except Alex’s failure to show up.  Jill didn’t actually want Alex to be there, she just wanted to slam her for not being there!  Jill would have ignored her anyway!

Way to go Sonja!  I thought it was great that she finally called Luann out for talking over people and not letting anyone else speak!  Sonja also pointed out that Luann wasn’t even there!  I think she was right to defend Ramona’s decision to get rid of toxic Jill.  The best part of Sonja’s speech was Kelly’s face as Sonja told her they finally got some peace and quiet after Kelly was removed from the island!  Thank you Sonja for bringing much needed class and fun to the show!   Sonja was also nice and tweeted to me last night shortly after the show ended thanking me for my support.  Very nice! 

Kelly will show up anywhere that you tell her the cameras will be!  We’ve all watched her crazy public service announcement, seen her interviews and read her drivel.  She had eluded to the fact that she did not want to go on the trip but her interview with Access Hollywood she came right out and said she was forced, yes forced by producers to go on this trip. 

Last night on Watch What Happens Live a caller asked Andy Cohen whether or not that was true.  Andy clearly said more than once that Kelly was NOT forced to go to St. John.  This had to make Kelly flip out and start talking to her furniture…not the “stuff” but the “objects”!  I can just picture her flipping out!!!

Kelly didn’t fume alone, she took to her Twitter and went wild!  Here are her tweets:

kikilet i wish andy & all of his opinions well.i was forced to go.if i didnt go,the trip wouldnt have been worth money

kiklet i wish andy well he loves the drama more than anyone

kikilet if i didnt go on the trip, they wouldnt have any drama

kikilet a fake getaway trip with the dynasty cast who havent had a pedicure since 98?

Kikilet  bravoandy is an executive at BRAVO. SHED MEDIA pays me.

Don’t bother looking for these tweets, Kelly has deleted them and replaced them with this: 

Kikilet  glad you liked the season of #REALHOUSEWIVES it was their most successful season, ever. great work, ladies

Obviously she was infuriated and as she was basically calling Andy a liar people were tweeting back to her asking her why she was talking that way about her “boss”.  I think many of us view Andy as the boss of the housewives.  I don’t know whether or not he is technically their boss or if he has any control over the cast.   Clearly his first responsibility is to Bravo and bringing in the big ratings.  Is he ruthless enough to ignore the insanity that is Kelly Bensimon and put her back on the show next season simply for ratings.  Probably! 

Kelly hasn’t changed, she is just as crazy now as she was when she filmed in St. John.  The ending of the show had Kelly spending much of her time being charitable?  Tweeting her “words of wisdom” is hardly being charitable!

Jill is never going to change!  She made that crystal clear!  At her lunch with Bethenny, she said that she wakes up each morning trying to do the right thing.  I guess she has some sort of medication in her Cheerios that force her to be a cunning, vile, bitch!  While she was trying to convince herself and others that she tries to be a good person and tries to do the right thing, she is calling Alex toxic! 

Jill blew Alex off again, she just refuses to let Alex even talk to her!  Jill is so closed minded and has no idea how to deal with people.  She knew she couldn’t tell Alex to “Leave!” since it was Ramona’s bash!  Jill is carrying this “grudge” against Alex even months and months after filming ended. 

Jill’s interview had her saying all of the right things, she said she recognizes that she holds onto grudges too long and it is a character flaw that she is working on, yet watch her as she holds this grudge against Alex!   I was proud of Bethenny when Jill tried once again to get Bethenny to forget the past and allow Jill to get back into Bethenny’s inner circle.  The screaming, “who gives a shit!” seemed to mean something different to Jill than it did for Bethenny!  Jill, like a dog with a bone, tried to get Bethenny say all is forgotten and forgiven but Bethenny is so much smarter than Jill. 

Bravo was sure to include captions of Bethenny’s words so that viewers would be crystal clear on what she said.  Bethenny told Jill that she had to make major changes before anything could be better between them.  Jill, once again, being the biggest fool in the world says that she is who she is….basically said take me or leave me!  Luckily Bethenny is leaving her!  Fans have already left her and she has done nothing in the finale to change anyone’s mind.  Thank you Jill for showing us the real Jill Zarin this season and proving to us that we have been right all along in HATING you!

Is it me or is she always losing Bobby?  It seems every event she has said, “where’s Bobby?”  Do you think Bobby purposely stays away from Jill so as not to hear the venom she spews?  I always get the feeling he doesn’t want to be there!

I still cannot figure out what happened with Jennifer Gilbert.  Is she a housewife, is she not a housewife?  She has had absolutely no impact on the show in the few episodes we saw her.  She snarked at Ramona’s wedding planner, who cares? 

I like Alex’s new attitude.  She tells us in her interview that she is not getting anywhere by holding everything in when she is upset.  Everyone gets angry sometimes, everyone has things that they would like to say and it’s time for Alex to have her say!  Practice makes perfect and I think the more Alex comes out with it, the less difficult she will find it to be and the less she will stress out and break out in hives as she gets her feelings out and tells it like it is!  I sincerely hope that Alex is back next season! 

I thought Ramona looked amazing at her vow renewal ceremony!  Mario’s vows actually brought a tear to my eye, I think he is a great husband and father  and he clearly loves his wife.  Not every man would so what he did and say what he said, especially on national television.  I love that he mentioned their daughter in his vows.  Nice job Mario, Ramona and Avery are lucky ladies! 

I really enjoyed the entire season.  Without all of the drama it may have not been as fun to watch but as much as I was infuriated by Jill, Kelly and Luann, I know Bravo wants to bring the drama, I suppose I feel like they could have balanced it a little better.  I also enjoyed watching the less dramatic scenes like the four ladies enjoying themselves on their last day on the USVI trip.  I liked seeing Bethenny and Jason together at his birthday party, alone chatting on the couch and moving downtown!  I would have liked to see more of Alex and Simon with their children, more of Sonja’s life, and more scenes where the ladies are just enjoying themselves!  I find myself smiling when they are smiling! 

Thank you to Bravo, I have really enjoyed season three of The Real Housewives of New York!  I will miss it but I know you’re working on even more great shows for viewers.  I look forward to the two episodes of the reunion and anticipate a third that includes, “lost footage”.  Bravo has put together a lost footage hour for almost every housewives show, I’m sure they will do it again.  I’m also looking forward to Bethenny’s new show, it may not be as dramatic but I think it will bring some giggles and smiles. 

Bravo is putting together Real Housewives series in Beverly Hills and in Washington DC, I hope they are going to meet the high standards that viewers have come to expect.  They are also filming Atlanta and there are already rumors and drama coming out of Atlanta during taping, so we may find another winner there, we’ll have to wait and see.  Overall viewers are disappointed with New Jersey this season and I hope Bravo learns from their mistakes.  I don’t think it takes a genius to figure out what is wrong with Jersey. 

Thank you to all of you for your amazing comments, you have really made this so much more enjoyable for me!  I loved writing the blog and loved reading all of your comments.  This has really been fantastic!  It is not over, there is so much more to blog about!!!  Even while the show isn’t airing, Kelly continues to Tweet, Jill continues to open mouth and insert foot and life goes on…stay tuned!

I am going to put together a blog showing all of the different comments/tweets from the stars of the show as soon as possible. 

So Until Next time…

  1. Had Enough! says:

    Hi, Lynn – Good morning! We missed you last night!

  2. Melinda says:

    YES! you are spot on! I heard Jill say “I am never gonna change” clear as day at that lunch with Bethenny……thank God Bethenny is so smart and such a good person that she sees right through Jill’s bullshit!

    Alex did reach out to Jill and when she shunned her I almost went through the tv to strangle the bitch!

    Kudos to Bethenny, Alex, Ramona and even Sonja (who is just trying to play nice in the sandbox!) the others? oh boy, they all need therapeutic intervention…….I should know, I am about to be a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist! 😉

  3. Sue says:

    Great blog entry Lynn. I agree with everything you said here :):):):).

    I got such satisfaction from Watch What Happens Live last night. Now, we know that the calls were pre-screened so kudos to Bravo, Andy and the operator for putting the “was Kelly forced to go to the USVI?” Question on air. Bravo. ***note to Kelly. Unless someone has a gun to your head telling to go somewhere you are not “forced” to go anywhere.

    • Snarkapalooza says:

      She meant forced in “Kellyspeak” – meaning that the production team left a trail of gummi bears from her apartment to the boat dock, thereby “forcing” Kelly to follow.

  4. CooCooPuffs says:

    Thanks Lynn!!!! I’ve got my fix now all is good in CooCoo-land

  5. Olivia says:

    Lynn, thank you for providing a safe place and an outlet for those of us “obsessed” viewers who have come to love/hate the NY cast. Most of us would have gone over the edge without this blog since most of our comments were deleted or unapproved on other sites. I think I speak for all of us in our appreciation.

    I confess that the only series I have ever watched on reality tv has only been the NY and NJ ladies. Tried the OC but found it unbearable. As for the other franchises, I just can’t work up any interest. The theme has been overdone and it seems that we are only being treated to the same personality group completely absorbed in their own mania for fame. Bleached blondes, breast enhanced, overexposed body part women who pretty much behave the same.

    I will miss the Jill Zarin blog after June 17th. It has been a whole lot of fun as we work out our own level of “psychosis” for which these women bring out in us.

    As Ramona would offer, “kadooze” to you!

  6. MickeyMouth says:

    Great blog! I am highly anticipating the lost footage episode, so unfortunately that means it will probably be a huge let down.

    I personally want Bethenny to say to Kelly at the reunion; “Well since we are talking about things leaked to the press. I will never forgive you for leaking that thing in that paper about me. We all know it was you. You know that thing in that paper about me. I will not justify it. It was vile. I’m over it. But I know it was you.” Let Kelly justify herself. Knowing that twit she probably will admit that she did leak lies and stuff about Bethenny to the press.

  7. Jill Johnson says:

    This blogger is “spot on”. Jill Zarin is the snake, and she isn’t going to change. Therefor she has forever broken her relationship w/Bethenny and Alex.

    And Sonja! Class act all the way!

    I will keep reading Lynn!

  8. Olivia says:

    In a sneak peek at the Reunion Show, Alex is backing Bethenny by throwing her own words back in Kelly’s face. It definitely shows a new Alex taking control and offering the truth. Kelly is at a loss to name who told her and where the articles appear that Bethenny supposedly was accused of against Kelly’s children. Knucklehead just keeps “harumphing” on and on and the conversation goes nowhere. By refusing to reveal who she had learned this from, I smell Jill’s stink all over it.

    • A former Jill fan says:

      Isn’t that great! Alex had such poise. I noticed jill stayed pretty quiet. I think jill’s actually intimidated by Alex’s new assertiveness. Loved it when Alex said that nowhere in the press did she see anything negative about kelly’s family.

  9. MickeyMouth says:

    “Is it me or is she always losing Bobby?” I think he and Ginger are trying to escaped but she keeps finding them.

    • otaypanky says:

      You mean Bawby is losing her.

      • HD says:

        I noticed that too. I thought damn he must not want to be around that woman! She is always “looking for Bawby” although honestly I think that is her little card that she can play when situations come up that she does not want to deal with, “oh let me find Bawby, oh Bawby’s lost agan, gee why didn’t I get that GPS inserted into this arm”

        • Ches says:

          I thought Bawby looked like he was getting pretty chummy with Kelly when she walked into Luanne’s whateverthehellitwas. Seemed to me he was a little too touch-feely.
          Love to see that shit hit the fan if Bawby started running around with Kelly.

    • Anitabee says:

      I’m waiting for the day Jill’s evilness really causes her to lose Bawby. Bawby will probably turn around and married Kelly Bensimon.

      Kelly Killoran Bensimon Zarin would be the perfect karma payback to Jill.

      • Kat says:

        But does Bobby deserve it?

        • Kats says:

          Bobby and Jill’s family is part of the problem (only exception might be her sister). I think too many people are telling Jill what she wants to hear vs. setting her straight and letting this stupid fight build up into such a major life altering situation.

        • felony stupid says:

          Maybe this is finally proof of what several of the women have accused Kelly of – clinging to the male part of the couple while not getting too close to the female. I suspect that she acts the same w/Mario and Simon and she would with Jason if he would allow it. She’s a nasty phony certifiable snake.

  10. Tootsie says:

    Many, many thanks Lynn and posters for keeping my mind clear on some subjects.
    There are things I completely miss and you bring it to my attendion. Coming here the night of or day after is a true joy. Can’t wait for the Reunion. On the preview it looked like Kelly, the Sashquash, said something and Jill got up to leave. This Reunion should be the best ever. Fortunately, for all her faults, Jill doesn’t have the potty mouth that Tamra Barney has so the Reunion s hould be good watching.

    • otaypanky says:

      Jill throws Fuck around like it’s ok.
      She most definitely has a potty mouth. She’s been bleeped all season.
      She is such total trash it hurts.

      • Had Enough! says:

        In the NY/NJ region, “fuck” has lost all sexual connotations and has become an ordinary word. It was widely used in ordinary conversation decades ago, when it was just another way of saying “shoot” or “darn” but with a little bit more emphasis. Now it doesn’t even have emphasis. Now it is just a word used as an intensifier. Effing this and effing that. It is like salt and pepper in the language. Sue Simmons, a NY news anchor, said it on the air when she thought they were in commercial and no one even blinked. Or, to put it in the vernacular, no one gave a flying fuck. I’ll bet most people wouldn’t even have noticed it had the press not picked it up.

        I have to watch myself when I leave the NY/NJ region, because people in other parts of the country don’t use this word.

        So to me, her usage isn’t a vulgarity. It is just the way my friends and I – all raised in and around NYC – talk every day.

        • lrd851 says:

          I have to agree.. I am a new yorker third generation, and we do use the word fuck alot… thats just the way we talk.. There is even a shirt being sold downtown that says” “F’ u, you “F’in” “F”.
          most New Yorkers dont even realize t hat we are using the word. its unfortunate..
          but it is what it is.

        • boston02127 says:

          @Had Enough~ I have a funny link for you to watch.
          I’m guilty too. Your post made me think of this.
          If anyone else clicks the link, it’s not for sensative ears.

        • Quincy IL says:

          Thanks for explaining this. Where I live, you never hear that language. I was so surprised that supposedly high class women would use those words. In a previous season, Jill said, “up her xxx” and I was shocked that she would say that. As you can see, I am unable to write such a phrase. Low class.

          The only comments from Jennifer Gilbert were similar to these bad words. She insulted the lady who did a very nice job for Ramona. That is low class too. I would never hire Jennifer Gilbert and she did a disserve to her company with her insults to the gay community and these bad words. How can she raise small children with a mouth like hers?

          • causticbroad says:

            Hon, it’s not low class. it’s a regional thing. I’m originally from Long Island and use the word F*** all the time. It’s an adjective in NY. But I do know when I can and when I can’t use that type of language. It depends on who you are with. I would never say that word around children or older folks! Oh F*** NO! Thats low class….LOL

          • c_mack_Omaha says:

            I also believe it is a generational thing as well. Although, my grandmother has been known to drop the f bomb….

        • Susanna says:

          Not quote so true of that particular vernacular, Had Enough. Here, just an hour south of DC and in DC proper, as well as Baltimore, where I grew up it is used ALL the time. Then again, you might expect to hear it in the DC area! lol

          • Kats says:

            IMO it’s not regional, it’s generational. I’m from and live in Chicago. Some people say it all the time and some don’t. Same in the burbs.

      • PFinFL says:

        Otaypanky….I noticed that yesterday when I watched a few of the epidsodes….Jill was either saying fu or sh….in EVERY episode. Makes me wonder how she is OFF camera. Wow!

        • Had Enough! says:

          DC – well, our current VP and the past VP said it publicly, and hard to imagine that it isn’t used liberally in political circles on both sides of the aisle.

          Boston – GREAT video – thanks! Except we use it to mean good things, too, like, “This is the best fucking sandwich I ever had.” So clearly in that context, it really is just an emphasizer. No dirty content whatsoever. Or how that guy in the video greeted his friend – hey you fucker, how you doing? That’s just how lots of guys talk. Nothing bad about the word when used this way. And then there’s fugging, freaking, fricking…where’s George Carlin when you need him?

  11. HD says:

    Great blog, Lynn and of course spot on! Who knew when I googled, ‘I hate Jill Zarin’, I would find a group of fabulous people that hated her too?!

    Watching Jill and Bethanny and really Jill after the lunch reminded me so much of a relationship that I have. It infuriates me to NO END that this person will not take responsiblity for their actions, their words, etc. But they are REALLY good at pointing out EVERYTHING about me yet when I point out something about them they have that same dismissive attitude as Jill. When I saw Bethanny walk away I knew that was what I was going to have to do with my relationship. As Jill stated people like that just do not change. Why aggravate myself?

    If I got nothing out of the season I did learn that lesson-an asshole will always be an asshole if they cannot admit they are an asshole!

    Thanks for the blog and for all the entertaiment this season!

    • Sandie says:

      Your post reminded me of this:

      If everyone is calling you a jackass, don’t you think you should at least look to see if you have a tail?


  12. Kelly-Has-Big- Shoulders says:

    Dear Lynn, I just wanted to say thank you again. Ever since I found the link to your blog on one of the housewives FB pages I have been in a trance, your blogs have been an addiction for me. I look forward to your blogs and updates and all the wonderful comments from everyone on here.
    I found myself sad to see the season end. Someone wrote somewhere that if there was no drama/fighting people would not watch, perhaps that is true, but I like you find myself smiling and enjoying the ladies when they are having fun. For example the parts of the trip with them swimming, talking, sunning themselves and TURTLE TIME!!
    I think Jill came out fake at the lunch with Bethenny. Beth is emotional and not a faker Jill is a faker and bad actress, she is not remorseful. Both Ramona and Bethenny told her to look at herself from the outside but she doesn’t get it.

    If she really cared about the friendship then all these months after filming had wrapped why was she bashing Bethenny eveyr chance she got. Jill only cares about Jill. Sorry if this is too long I just wanted to write down my two cents even though I’m not as witty as everyone else who writes on here.
    Love everyones comments.
    I wish I was back living in Chicago so I could go see Alex & Simon. I missed them when they came to Miami. 😦 Have fun Lynn.

    • Kokuanani says:

      Jill is a faker and bad actress,

      The complete capture of this is when Jill turns on that fake smile. Just watching her do it tells you all you need to know about how fake she is.

  13. A former Jill fan says:

    Thanks for the new blog Lynn!

    I agree with most of what you said, but I didn’t enjoy the season as much as you because of Jill and Kelly. Their kind of snark I could live with. To me, the only redeemable factor was seeing jill put in her place several times!

    Ramona’s vows were beautiful; Mario’s vows were great, too, but when he started to recite the traditional part of his vows, I lost it! LOL! Don’t know why…

    Jill tries to seem humble on this finale and a changed woman, but stupid as she is, in real time, she’s posting stuff that’s totally contradicting that faux humbleness! Stupid!

    I hate to use that word, but she and kelly are about the stupidest people i’ve ever met!

    • Olivia says:

      Please let me add Lu Ann in here as well. She is so insufferable that it makes it almost painful to watch. Every time she makes a comment she adds a giggle onto the end of it. She makes me sick.

      • Olivia says:

        Let me replace “giggle” with “snicker”. Giggle can be cute, snicker is not.

      • Had Enough! says:

        Most of us, when we hear our own voice – even just speaking – sort of recoil. When we hear ourselves singing – most of us shut up and don’t sing again for months! How could LuAnn have heard that – even after the auto-tuning – and not stopped in her tracks and said holy shit that sucks! I need to get a different hobby!

        • Olivia says:

          The new French boyfriend seemed pleased as she made a roaring fool out of herself. But then he lives in France where Carla Bruni makes the same type of recordings which are equally as bad.

          No accounting for taste.

          • cusi77 says:

            @ Olivia– This time I have to disagree with you..

            Carla Bruni is a songwriter, well respected singer and talented.

            Her name and that housewife DO NOT belog together. I am sorry.

  14. HD says:

    Also, I forgot, I watched the reunion clip with Kelly…I am from the old school, if you have evidence or an article, MENTION IT, BRING IT, SHOW IT! (Of course we ALL know there is no article.) But why not put that issue to bed finally? All that double talk just say WHO TOLD YOU and WHERE THE ARTICLE IS….Obviously there is no article, this is something Kelly invented as we all know along with that fact that little green man come to her at night and sprinkle fairy dust on her…

    • A former Jill fan says:

      Definitely! Kelly said Bethenny defamed her kids in the press. Always “in the press”! Prove it!

      Kelly can’t, because it’s nowhere!

      • pippi longstocking says:

        Yeah, EVERYTHING is on the internet now, Knucklehead. Google it and cough it up!

    This has been quite a season! Not since the Sopranos have I looked so forward to a show. It wasn’t that way for the first two seasons but boy O’ boy did the drama explode. Funny, I’m normally not the obsessed fan type being career woman, mom and busy engaged person, but RHONYC even got me twittering with Kelly! Amazingly, Kelly twitters back! Go figure that. Shouldn’t she be making more youtube home videos? I doubt she gets many offers. If she did, you know she would be twittering about it. What a twit.

    Just for the sake of hearing myself say what has been said over and over again, I hope Bravo does not exploit Kelly Bensimon by leaving that mentally sick, possible drug addict off the show. Jill has her place on the show. Who would LuDog hang with if she leaves? Plus, Jill is the new Danielle. We love to hate her and watch her fall on her face. Good will never win-out over evil so she brings nasty to the show. As of right now, my favorite is Sonja. She could tone-down the cougar routine, but I find her to be balanced, classy and funny. Her humor goes without notice sometimes, for example, when on the boat she calls to the gals and says, “You’re going to leave me with that again”, referring to Kelly the loco for coco-puffs gal. Funny, funny.

    So Lynn, keep is in touch with the ladies, if you will. I’m going to skip the stuff about the New Jersey hags because they remind me of feral women raised by white trash, uneducated mobsters. Hey, I love drama, but the table-flippin’, Danielle story line got old fast. I just turn the TV off when it comes to RHONJ. Hopefully, I won’t do that next season to RHONYC, when and if Kelly returns. I’m willing to give-up my addiction if Kelly returns. Yup, I even have my fingers and toes crossed that both Kelly and Jill will be canned, but I’m sure Bravo thinks they bring in ratings.

    Anyway Lynn, I want to thank you for your fun, snarky and well-written blog. You are the cat’s meow in my book. I look forward to reading almost every word you write. I hope Bravo reads your blogs out-loud in planning meetings. I’m sure Andy reads you for “research” purposes. LOL

    Take care and keep blogging. Btw, who is the handsome young man in the pic standing next to you?

      Coco, that is priceless, lol, and also the reason I can’t watch them.

  16. Adgirl says:

    The most irritating part of Jill’s put downs and ignoring of Alex is that clearly Jill finds Alex to be a “nobody”.
    Jill feels that Alex doesn’t deserve to be in Jill’s exhalted presence. The second Jill feels Alex wasn’t worshipping her – snap! Alex is sooo dead to her.

    • A former Jill fan says:

      jill’s finding that to be so untrue now–

      1) Alex’s book is still selling well and their book tour has been going strong while jill’s book tour fizzled after 3 weeks!

      2) Bethenny said Alex and Ramona will be shown in her new show because they were there for her and part of her life while jill chose not to be

      3) her fans still like Alex, and Alex’s fan base has grown. jill’s fan base has shrunk significantly

    • Sue says:

      Amen!!!! Jill’s snub, once again, of Alex just shows how shallow and petty that she is. It makes Jill look like an ass and makes Alex look like she is trying to at least keep the peace and/or bury the hatchet. Unfortunately for Alex, Jill would like that hatchet to be in Alex’s back.

    • Seriously? says:

      Yeah, Jill may tell herself that Alex is a nobody, but deep down she is pea-green jealous of her, which IMHO is what triggered her whole problem with Bethenny that started the whole thing. She is still the insecure little high school girl who can’t stand when someone gets more popular or gets more attention. She figured out really fast that B. was going to get more attention via her show and when she tried to worm her way back in, saw that not only was Bethenny not pining away for her, she saw Alex in her place. Then she sees that Alex releases a book the same time her book is released and the press is far better than the press she’s getting. “But why don’t they love meee?” When we all know the reason is that Alex acted honorably and JZ did not.

      Love on her Extra appearance and blog today that she is claiming editing after her putdown of Alex for that last year.

      Probably the worst punishment on earth for JZ is the fact that after she is done and people are dead to her and they are told to leave and never darken her fabulous circle again, that they are not only okay, they thrive and all the latkes in the world can’t make them care again.

    • jb8 says:

      I am now wondering about that as I watch Season 1 (from Target yesterday). Another possibility is that insecure Jill is now realizing that others are just as smart, if not smarter, than her. That money can buy you stuff, but it can’t give you character or that undefinable trait that Bethenny, Alex and Sonja have, that makes people enjoy being around them. Ramona even has it, although she can be infuriating at times. Didn’t she prove to be the better star on the show that Jill bizarrely thinks was hers? From watching S1, I can see the delusions and personality faults were present all along, but it took us until S3 to fully grasp them.

    • Kats says:

      Totally Agree! While Luann and Jill have been social to Alex and Simon I know they have always fet that they are beneath them. And J & L being nice to them was some grand gesture. So when Alex blew up at Jill there was no slack for apology that could mend it.

  17. Kelly-Has-Big- Shoulders says:

    Quick question is Andy getting a % from Luanns Song? Why does he plug it so freaking much?

    Oh and I thought Ramona & Mario were lovely and Avery how sweet was she.

    • Had Enough! says:

      I think Andy is having fun at LuAnn’s expense. Everyone knows that the song sucks big time and she’s the only one who doesn’t get it. They are laughing at her, not with her, by airing it over and over to show that she is a total fool.

      Kind of like the mash-up of JillZilla saying thebookthebookthebook – NOT a plug for the book, but a slam on Jill and her astonishing ridiculousness – not only because the book is total drek but because of her endless shilling.

    • boston02127 says:

      I don’t know about a him getting percent but I’ve found that since he plays it so much I don’t like him as much.

        I remember Andy doing the exact same thing with Kim’s Tardy for the Party. I think he is really going over the top because it is his job to support the ladies, but Andy’s sense of humor is still there and he’s making fun as much as he is supporting.

    Thank you for your wonderful blog. I have enjoyed your observations as much as watching the show.

    I was diagnosed with Lymphoma several months ago and as I go through the toughest time in my life, this guilty pleasure (blog and RHONY) has been …comforting(?) to me. Its been my total escape.

    I have never watched a show in all of my 45 years that has elicited every emotion imaginable in me. Your blogs say it all and I always feel better after YOU get everything off my chest in your writings, lol.

    Please convey my sincere admiration to Simon and Alex at your cocktail party. (my husband even offered to fly me out to Chicago to attend, but unfortunately, I am feeling too ill to travel at this time). They are awesome to watch and follow and I have become a huge fan of theirs this season. In fact, I would abandon the show without them on it.

    Once again, thank you so much Lynn. I look forward to your blogs on Bethenny’s new show as well.

    Jill crying during her lunch with Bethenny – so obvious they were tears of self pity.

  20. Kelly-Has-Big- Shoulders says:

    Crocodile tears

  21. error 404 says:

    the biggest problem with J&B’s lunch was that it happened 90 days too late. If it had happened back at Labor Day, the “friendship” could have been salvaged. In Dec? Too little too late.

    the other big problem with their “friendship”, and they are both guilty of this, is the use of messengers. Jebus, they both all but put the other housewives on bikes with messenger bags as they deployed them to deliver one message after another to each other like flying monkeys.. and they live a block apart! It was the TV equivolent of “tell your mother that daddy needs the car for a meeting tomorrow” when the whole family is at the dinner table. Pathetic.

    • error 404 says:

      to be fair, I should add that B didn’t start using the McCord Messenger Services until after Jill refused to speak to her.

      • Katiecoo says:

        Well i think the MMS launched their new image on their own with that first message…I think Bethenny was a. already done and b. blocked out so many times, tired of trying and c. distracted with her SWEET LIFE. But love that…the McCord Messenger Service. lol

  22. jennifer says:

    Did anyone else notice in the event with LuAnn when everyone rushed in to say how wonderful she did Jill didn’t really say anything? I am not a LuAnn fan but I do think Jill has been a bitch to her this season too, and maybe LuAnn is starting to sorta see that. I think Jill is incapable of being happy for anyone else….
    Loved when Sonja called out Jill and LuAnn for talking over her, and at least LuAnn said ok you’re right, but Jill tried to continue talking. I honestly think Jill does not like anyone on this show…..

    I loved watching the RHONYC and reading yoru blogs Lynn! Thanks so much for doing it and I look forward to reading about B’s show….
    I actually am happy Andy called Kelly an outright liar…..but if Kelly is tweeting she had to go or trip not worth it cuz no drama, is she saying she is not real and manufactured the whole thing? (which is it real or not?) I think Luann summed it up best when she said Kelly contridicts herself so much you can never really believe her.
    Jill saying she changed is pure BS, not just because she continues to trash Alex and B after taping ended but also because she then turned around and complained about Ramona’s renewal ceremony. What a hypocrite! She also wrote on her website she can’t blog because she hadn’t watched the finale DVD yet, but her assistant tweeted they watched it together 2 weeks ago, also we all know they have to watch it before the reunion show, so she still lying. Lynn I think you’re absolutly right she believes the viewer is stupid.

    Again, thanks for the blog!

    • cusi77 says:

      I beleive she complimented somehow… Classic from Jill, she undermines EVEN

      • desertgal66 says:

        Rewatch the episode where Jill, LuAnn, and Jen meet Kelly for lunch after Kelly got back from the island. When LuAnn walked in, Jill started talking about the gift bags that she planned to give at the ice skating party. She mentioned that she would have liked to include LuAnn’s CD in them. LuAnn said, “Well, darling, we can’t just give them away.” Jill’s next comment? “Oh, you’ll give plenty of them away, trust me.”

        That was such a total slam to LuAnn – as in “You’ll give plenty of them away-you certainly couldn’t sell them, because your singing sucks”.

        Classic Jill lowblow.

        • Olivia says:

          It was a well deserved slam at a well deserving Lu Ann. You got to love these two. Peas in the proverbial pod.

          Smug, condescending, overbearing, self righteous, fully absorbed, ignorant to the max, money grubbing, back biting sleazebuckets with too much time on their hands.

          Hate them both. Two self satisfied twits.

        • Seriously? says:

          See, this is the thing. She was nasty to EVERYONE this season. Cutting, snarky, mean with constant putdowns. This is the mark of someone who is consumed by envy or jealousy.

          Mama always said that jealously was an ugly emotion. Man, was she ever right.

        • Need a Hobby says:

          Actually, I think Jill was right since IMO she was talking about giving them away for promotional purposes. To get people (reviewers, bloggers, etc) to start talking about it and generate word of mouth. It’s done with books, for example. Bravo used to give promo DVD’s of RHONY to reviewers, another example. Back in the Bravo Project Runway days I think they also gave some promo DVD’s to prominent bloggers like the TLO, the Project Rungay bloggers.

          So I didn’t take it as a slam given the context and Jill’s marketing background. Jill does genuinely dis people, but I don’t think this was an example.

        • sbh says:

          and of course, it also shows that Jill had to give her books away for free too (I guess because no one was buying them.)

          • felony stupid says:

            It kinda came off as a dis….same as the time Jill gave LuAnne shit for her invites when she and Sonja were in Sonja’s backyard on the speaker phone. What kind of friend does that? One that is so confident she has the upper hand in the relationship she can do and say anything. Jill is a true witch to everyone in her life. Lord knows what B actually went through when they were “close”.

  23. DCxicana says:

    JZ has opened her blog up for comments and is responding to posts. Although I doubt that she will respond to bloggers who frequent Lynn’s site.

    Great Job Lynn!

    • Had Enough! says:

      No kidding. I posted a question – politely – this morning about something she wrote saying that she had a hard time making up with Bethenny because of the cameras and outside interference (hmmm…LuAnn much?). Anyway, she didn’t post it, even though I used a different name. At first, she was letting a few posts go through that expressed disappointment with her, but now she’s back to just the “I Love you Jill” crazies.

  24. boston02127 says:

    Lynn, love your Blog~5 stars!

    I just got done reading 4 pages of posts. Our phone got shut off yesterday and I couldn’t use my computer. I didn’t find out it was off until about two o’clock and I literally ran to a payment center to put money on it but they wouldn’t turn it back on until this morning around nine. I was so sad (and lonely) last night when I was watching the show and not being able to read what everyone had to say.

    I was a little disappointed with the show. I wish that Bethenny was a little harder on Jill. Maybe when she watches the show and sees what we saw she won’t let Jill in her life any further. Jill was obviously on her best behavior and it was so transparent. She’ so nasty she can’t even pull off being nice. I know she was trying to redeem herself but nothing she could do or say that would ever make me like her.

    I think Jill can’t stand Kelly but she knows how dumb Kelly is. It seems like Jill keeps feeding Kelly whatever Jill wants to say, that way when Kelly talks everyone will hate Kelly and then Jill (so she thinks) will come out smelling like a rose. I’ll never believe that the two of them are true friends and I can’t wait to see that so called friendship fall apart. Kelly will never know what hit her.

    I’m so sick of Kelly not knowing what’s going on. She’s so stupid it’s not worth talking about. I can say this thou, she looks really washed up and that alcoholic ball at the end of her nose is getting bigger and bigger. I still believe she’s a bitter and nasty drunk.

    Jen~ I already hate Jen. I thought she was so rude at Ramona’s. The event planner was there and she said “can you see hiring her to plan an event” I wanted to slap that pointy aardvark face of hers.

    Alex~ She’s too smart for Jill. I like that Alex doesn’t seem to care one way or another if Jill doesn’t like her.

    Ramona’s wedding renewal was really nice. It was a lot nicer than the childish ice skating mess Jen put together. The cake was beautiful. I loved their vows. Avery looked beautiful. I cried when Ramona and Avery were in the mirror together.
    I’ve always liked Ramona and I like her family. I didn’t get why Cookie was there thou.

    I’m anxious to see what everyone here has to say today. Last night I realized that Lynn has brought a really nice group of people together on here.

    Once more thing, did anyone see the clip of the reunion show? Did you see Jill’s hair?
    She looks like a washed up hooker. (Kelly’s mom!)

    • Kat says:

      Boston ! You were missed last night. Welcome back.

    • sbh says:

      I thought the dog was Ramona’s dog (can’t remember name) and Bethenny just held him for the ceremony.

      I think the scene with Jill avoiding Alex was very important. It showed the BS from lunch was just that–BS. Here she is doing the same thing to Alex–absolutely no growth. And you can see how Jill rolled her eyes and shut down the minute that either Bethenny or Ramona tried to tell Jill about her meanness.

  25. cusi77 says:

    Thank you Kindly Lynn! Great blog!

    I agree with Olivia, this is a safe place to express our thoughts and frustration, we find great comments backed with links.

    I centainly found here nice people with the same passion of mine… RHONY!

    Thank you all of you!

    Kelly in her blog wrote “J’aime que m’aime” ( I love those who love me) was she married to a French? I do not have shame to correct her “J’aime QUI m’aime”…

    The rest of you can correct my English, though!

    We all make mistakes, says Jill. Yes, Jill, we do. But we don’t go on national television to show the entire world how crass, craven, grubby, greedy, loud, nasty, obnoxious we are. You think that we all hate you just because of the Bethenny story. I admit that prior to that time, I was overlooking the obvious, much as I actually felt uncomfortable with the stereotype that you were reinforcing (loud, grubby, cheap Jewish woman). Now the fight with Bethenny just forced me to focus on how terrible you really are. Had that fight never happened, I would still hate you. I would hate you for your nasty behavior on Ramona’s yacht party, sticking your finger down your throat, kvetching about the lack of food (before you even got on the boat), sticking your nose into someone else’s argument, ruining her party. For your nasty comments at the fashion show. For your constant boasting about your financial status (Saks Black Diamond card) and so much more. And that is just the stuff on the show. For the off-air crap: Susan Saunders, planting nasty stories in the press about Simon (last year) and Alex and Simon (this year), your behavior in stores and with charity event organizers…the list goes on and on and on. You are ugly and jealous and petty, and none of that is about Bethenny or the fight. It is about you and the way you are and the way you behave.

    • boston02127 says:

      Well said!

      Standing Ovation!!!!! You go girl 🙂

    • sbh says:

      Everyone has noticed that without Bethenny’s friendship, Jill has shown what a terror she is, how Bethenny was keeping her nice (how she got away the first two seasons). Now, everyone says how nice Bethenny is–being a mom, in love, but I think just like Bethenny was a good influence on Jill, Jill was a bad influence on Bethenny. Without HER-JILL’S toxicity, Bethenny’s natural friendliness and empathy soared.

  27. error 404 says:

    these HW series really should be labeled with a FCC warning “Kids, do not try attempt these games at home!” lol

  28. desertgal66 says:

    Great blog, Lynn!

    I think what bothers me the most about Jill is that she makes no attempt at self awareness. She pays lip service to self awareness, but then the real Jill peeks out from behind the facade.

    Lip Service: “I need to stop holding grudges.”
    Real Jill: “I refuse to change. I am who I am.”

    Lip Service: “I try to learn from my mistakes, and be a better person.”
    Real Jill: “I refuse to change. I am who I am.”

    Everyone changes, Jill. Everyone. Our characters and personalities are not static-they evolve and reflect the ups and downs of life. By saying you refuse to embrace the changes that life brings, and to learn the lessons that life teaches, is the clearest indication of the narrowness of your mind, and the smallness of your heart and soul. And that’s just sad. Your ‘friends’ are better off without you in their lives, because there is nothing genuine or heartfelt about the ‘friendship’ you offer.

    The other sad part is that Jill has continually claimed that she realized how much she valued Bethenny’s friendship. But, here’s the thing: when Bethenny came to Ramona’s apartment, to try and work things out with Jill, if Jill had truly valued Bethenny’s friendship, the circumstances of that particular incident shouldn’t have mattered to her so much. Friendship isn’t about score keeping or holding grudges. If you truly care about someone, you WANT to work out difficulties, regardless of where or when.

    Jill didn’t want that. She wanted to cry “Ambush!” and twist that knife a little more in Bethenny’s heart by withholding her friendship. She overplayed that hand, though, because everyone has a limit and Bethenny reached hers. Bethenny realized that, if she had to work that hard to regain Jill’s ‘friendship’, and swallow that much of Jill’s vindictive nonsense, then it just wasn’t worth it.

    Jill has transferred her rage to Alex…and the ironic part is, Alex clearly couldn’t care less about Jill. And what did Alex do that was so bad? She didn’t play according to Jill’s rules. If a friendship means that you have to conform to how someone else thinks you should behave, then that isn’t a friendship, either. You care about your friends for who they are, good and bad, not for who you want them to be.

    For Bethenny and for Alex, it became goodbye and good riddance, and they are better and happier for it.

    As for Kellamity: the woman is clearly paranoid, delusional, and disconnected completely from reality. We can only hope that Bravo will stop exploiting this mentally ill woman for ratings and not invite her back next year. She’s just too sad to watch.

    • shantygal says:

      desertgal, I loved everything you said here. I have a “jill” in my life that I need to contact to resolve an ongoing grudge. Trouble is that I’m more of an Alex and tend to get tongue tied and nervous when confronting my aggressor. It’s all there, upstairs, it just doesn’t come out right. A couple of your statements fit my situation perfectly, and I would like to use them verbatim. Do you mind?

    • Katiecoo says:

      OMG this is such a great post!

      I have a good girlfriend who I’ve been through quite a few ups and downs with (she’s like a sister to me who I’m often caretaking but who also loves me unconditionally and is funny, smart, and brings out the best in me…she just has a lot of “life struggles” of her own, and we have our own patterns of dysfunction). But anyway, we may go through a conflict and I get all irked, but as soon as I see her my heart melts as we do have this long history and she IS like family to me and I KNOW her good heart and intentions, that I soften, cry and it’s easy to make up quickly.

      Not so w/ Jill. Her hardness and hanging on to resentment trumped that every time…until as B so astutely observed ‘the tides started turning against her” and she NEEDED Bethenny. But it wasn’t natural. That’s because she’s a fully blown malignant narcissist. in my opinion! 😉

    It was so galling to see Jill say, two times, I am not going to change. Ugh! Just infuriating. She absolutely cannot and will NOT take one ounce of responsibility and that is just sickening. She stops any conversation, will not hear it, and says she will not change.

    Then trying to be all sickening sweet to Bethenny in the end made me sick.

    She is just a worthless piece of garbage. LuMann makes me ill – she is so fake and a trouble-maker. I will not watch this season again. They are not in the category of those we love to hate. They are so vile they are not worth any more of my time.

    • shantygal says:

    • sbh says:

      I think Jill started believing all the hype you tell people to build their self-esteem: always be who you are, never apologize for being a strong woman, don’t let others keep you down. She just missed the part where these things are only powerful if you use who you are, your ‘convictions,’ and your ‘strength’ for good, not evil. If you use it to hurt others and then not apologize, then you are just a no good bitch unwilling to work with well with others.

    Threw this up last week but I think everyone had moved on to the next blog. 😦

    Jill & Co. just don’t get it. They were tired of the drama on that trip. Those poor women were just so destroyed and emotionally drained after dealing with Kelly. There was no way they were in any position to deal with Jill’s drama. I can just picture Jill starting some argument, and they all snap. Suddenly we have bikinied housewives descending on Jill ala the Twilight “Vamps” on Glee. They would still be finding pieces of Jill on that beach.

      That may have actually been one of jill’s most lucid moments–to realize that she wasn’t welcome there and had better skedaddle! It would have been funny to see those bikinied housewives go after jill. LOL!

      • courtines says:

        Her leaving wasn’t any moment of self awareness or good decision making. She was all about playing the victim and trying to make everyone else look bad.

    I have to share something…

    My hubby works from 2. Am to 2 Pm therefore he sleeps during the afternoon, but he asked me to wake him up to watch RHONY, so I did it…

    He was crying during Ramona’s renewal vows with Mario’s words… me too, but when I saw his tears… I hugged him! He told me he as well loves me more than 7 years ago when we got married…

    • desertgal66 says:

      I noted this on the other blog, but I think it’s worth repeating…

      I’ve been married over 20 years. Whenever my husband and I attend a wedding together, it’s emotional for us. We never fail to be reminded of our own wedding day, and it always remind us how lucky we are to have the love and friendship we have developed over 20+ years of shared experiences.

      I noted last night, during Ramona and Mario’s renewal ceremony, that Alex and Simon and Bethenny and Jason were having the same emotional reaction that my husband and I so often do. They exchanged several affectionate glances and hand clasps that showed how watching Mario and Ramona reaffirm their love did the same for those four.

      Jill and Bobby? Not even sitting together. No affectionate exchange of glances, nothing. That’s pretty revealing.

      • Katiecoo says:

        Good point!!!!

        • Seriously? says:

          I caught that, too. In fact, no one on that side was sitting with a significant other. Interesting.

          I did think it was pretty tacky of the production company/editing to do the close-up on LuAnn during the ceremony. Yeah, we get it, she’s now ALONE, ALONE, ALONE. Not her biggest fan, but ugh.

          • Kats says:

            Yeah where was Luann’s new BF? And if Kelly is so great (NOT) and has all these friends in her very full life why is she always showing up ALONE or having to PAY guys to hang with her (Ala Max)?????

      • RAR says:

        I was wondering about that. Just where was Bobby during the ceremony?

        I hate jill zarin

    • The Digger says:

      Hug and tell people you love how you feel everyday. Live everyday with nothing unsaid as one day it might suddenly not be there. Mario and Ramona’s vows. Very touching.

  34. Olivia says:

    I just finished running the vacuum upstairs and their is more melody coming out of that motor than there is coming out of Lu Ann pipes. Anyone who tells her she can sing must be tonedeaf or on her payroll.


  35. Kelly-Has-Big- Shoulders says:

    Glad your back Boston!

  36. Mel says:

    Thanks for being our cruise director through crazy town 🙂 I think it would be fun to see a blog on suggested improvements for the ladies to work on for next season. I will apologize in advance. I watch these episodes first thing the next morning and so instead of being subdued by Pinot I am amped up on my morning coffee 🙂
    Sonja- rest up and keep your head on straight. We love your perspective and you are fun to watch!! You are a good girlfriend (casually saying “don’t be paranoid” while smoothing your hair and trying to spare your friends from making rears of themselves!
    Jen- this show is not for you. You were snarky and especially so when you drink. Stay behind the scenes at parties and do not intermingle. You have a lot of judgmentalness in you and I am so sorry to see it come through in such a short period of time. You seemed nice- until you opened your mouth. What was wrong with the wedding planner?? I think that you did yourself some damage as who would now trust you with their special event knowing that you are mean.
    Bethenny- take care of yourself and recoup from this trainwreck of a year and celebrate your new beginnings. Really like the combo of you and Jason together. You seem to balance each other and take care of each other.
    Ramona- keep the new do- liked it flipped up instead of down. Keep honing your newly found skills of conflict management (diffusing Jill and Kelly) and being more aware of what you are saying to others. Was fun to see you checking yourself as the season played out!!
    Alex and Simon- Keep up what you are doing. Thanks for not letting the fame go to your heads. Keep loving each other and striving to stay level headed and sane! You both are very articulate and refreshing.
    Bobby- Don’t be a doormat. Jill uses you in so many ways. She uses you for your $ and as a buffer for her predicaments/battles. Keep telling her when she is being too inflexible with others.
    Kelly- Get some professional help. Get a psychological assessment and a PR person. Take a little R&R to a nice quiet facility somewhere sunny…
    Luanne- focus on raising your kids. Your new life can wait but your kids cannot. You seemed to run through several guys immediately after separating from the Count. Why don’t you try getting yourself and house in order instead of looking for someone else to support you. (although, watch it with J- Kelly seemed to drool a bit over that one and she owes you for the “Max” thing…)
    Jill- I know that you said at least twice this episode that you will never change but I am not a fatalist and always believe that people can change. You don’t have to turn into your mother (I am not happy so no one else will be happy either and the constant judgmental attitude towards everyone). Mean what you say or don’t say it (We are done, we are not friends, we do not travel in the same circle any longer, ________ is toxic). Review the season and make an effort or vow to learn from it. First step- acknowledge your mistakes (regardless of the other person’s part), own it. Secondly- forgive the other person. Don’t just say you forgive and then harp on it to anyone within earshot. Third- Don’t repeat the pattern- even if it means asking Bobby or someone reliable to remind you to keep yourself in check.
    Last, but not least, Bravo- Please stop exploiting the mentally unstable/ill (Kelly, Danielle). You are playing with fire and may end up with lawsuits on your hands  Also, please don’t recruit lowclass entertainment for the Real Housewives such as the white house crashers. Do not give them credibility like this. Yuck. Andy, glad to see you being honest about Kelly being forced on the trip. Don’t allow “the help” to trash on you and the show like that. Fire their butts. I know this is hard to believe, but we like the good stuff and don’t only enjoy “drama”. We enjoyed “turtletime”, the Hooters boat, the vow renewal, Bethenny’s big changes, Simon’s interesting clothing choices, Mario’s countless comment, the bridal shower, seeing Bethenny cook, Sonja’s lifestyle of parties and coffee indulgence. It was “gross” to have to focus so much time and energy on Jill and her drama. Feels like we kind of got cheated…

  37. error 404 says:

    Jen being a “housewife” was never more than gossip. I’ll believe it when I see something concrete form Bravo. I doubt they’ll hire her because she didn’t prove ‘edit worthy’, seems to be unpopular judging by blog feedback, and why does NY need 8 HW when the others only have 5.

    3 on the ledge: Kelly, Betheny and Jill.

    Kiki cause she crazy. Crazy with a habit for bitting the hand that feeds her.

    B because I’m sure all of the indecision is really just waiting to see if she has her own show or not.

    Jill cause she may have cornered herself. She stormed out of the reunion, and it seems as if no one ran after her to bring her back. Now she’s stuck and putting out feelers that she might quit the show, waiting for Bravo to beg her to come back for season 4. As we’ve seen this season, her games sometimes backfire.

    Shoe ins: Lulu, Sonja, Alex and Ramoner.

    All unpredictable and entertaining.

    Lulu because her hilarious lack of self awareness coupled with an ego the size of manhattan makes her the gift that keeps on giving. Comedy gold!

    Sonja because she’s the only one who showed a glimmer of potential for picking up the Bethenny mantel. Even SJP picked these two to be the most “Carrylike”.

    Alex because she found her voice, and viewers like hearing it.

    Ramoner because she’s TV gold: she instigates almost every single fight, then quietly backs away while the others rip each other apart. It’s no coincidence that she started each of Kiki crazy St John rants of insanity: 1. bringing up Jill at lunch, 2. bringing up Hooters and promiscuity after dinner, 3. bringing up the “hell over water” feelings at dinner, etc…

  38. Kelly-Has-Big- Shoulders says:

    @Boston that wasn’t cookie that was Ramona’s dog Coco.

    Also about Jen yeah why did we have to have her shoved in so many scenes last night. She never even got a proper entrance into the show so as far as we know she is nobody.

    • boston02127 says:

      Ohhhh!! LOL, Last night I keep thinking: why do they have Bethenny’s dog there, I thought it was a little odd & quirky that Ramona would include “Bethenny’s” dog. Duh me~ but I’m laughing about it now.

  39. Kelly-Has-Big- Shoulders says:

    @ Mel , I agree with you 100%

  40. Olivia says:

    I love the “psychics” that drag into the show. Jill’s telling Lu Ann there was a new man coming into her life with the initial “J” when all along Lu Ann was secretly dating a guy whose first name started with J. How prescient as if she did not already know this from Jill herself.

    But how come she was not able to tell Jill that her behavior was somehow going to rear up and bite her in the @ss? Not as tuned in as expected.

    The same with Sonja’s psychic. She could not foresee the event over the weekend looming up? Somebody is not earning their stripes here!

  41. ridicurhony says:

    re: everyone’s comments on Jill’s ‘I can’t change’ statements. I think some people get stuck on an anger track. They do something stupid that gets an angry reaction and then do their best to shift blame (by throwing it on the person they offended), then when that person is done with them, they immediately move on to someone else, constantly angry at one person or another. It keeps them from having to face WHY the other person is upset with them -namely their own behavior. I know there’s some kind of endorphin involved in telling someone off or yelling, but c’mon! Having friends produces more of that than being pissed off all the time.

    I am never going to understand how some people can get stuck in this sort of loop, believing, what?, that they’re going to DIE if they admit they were wrong and not perfect and that they caused someone harm. Constantly saying I’m not perfect really IS saying I am not going to apologize for my behavior because I cannot be WRONG. Humility does not kill people. lol.

    • Katiecoo says:

      Humility kills a Narcissist. I’m telling you, that and being ignored are like poison to them.

      To quote a dialogue with my ex Narciman:

      Me: Here’s the deal (insert Big Asshole as his name). You behave poorly, never apologize, shut me out, then I end up apologizing to you for your own bad behavior to keep the peace.

      BA (with a smile): I can’t believe you’re finally getting it! I’m proud of you!

      (and he was 100% serious).

      Once I learned that ignoring them is THE WORST thing you can do, I kicked his sorry ass to the curb and went in to full ignore mode–2 years ago. And he still finds creative ways to try and contact me (including just 2 weeks ago) even though he is met with a brick wall 100% of the time. Ignoring them kills them. Of course I know, the second they get you back, the abuse starts in full force for you ever having the audacity to ever leave them.

      If Bethenny ever had a mental breakdown of her own and let Jill back in her life, Jill would find creative ways to torture her over and over for ever having humiliated her in the ways she has been humiliated. And never forget it. Her comment “I forget everything” is totally laughable…she remembers every slight and coddles them at night like little pets.

      • ridicurhony says:

        so, so true.

      • Kat says:

        Great post.
        I love, ” she remembers every slight and coddles them at night like little pets.”

        • Kokuanani says:

          I picture Jill going through the “nursery” and checking her “list” to make sure all of the slights, errors, and mistakes are okay as she tucks them in, one by one.

          “See you all in the morning.”

  42. Kelly-Has-Big- Shoulders says:

    @eye2try , Wishing a full recovery, please take good care of yourself so you can stay on her and comment with the rest of us.

  43. Katiecoo says:

    Just some quick thoughts then I’ll go back to reading all of your fantastic comments.

    1. I think Alex reached her limit with Jill when Jill went too far with Bethenny. And Bethenny reached a point of no return (NO return) when Jill went too far with Alex. I find that deliciously sweet.

    2. JILL herself has become “the underdog” now. Isn’t that something? By her own doing, she’s on the outs with all the cool girls of the show (maybe not on the outs with Sonja but it’s clear Sonja has her number).

    3. It was clear at the renewal that she can’t get under Bethenny’s skin anymore. Bethenny is detached from her like she’s been from any of the other gals she’s confronted, snarked about , etc. throughout this whole show. I love it that Jill knows she will never get that closeness back with Bethenny and no matter how many times she tries to spin Bethenny as causing that, she knows exactly what she did and it’s irreversible.

    GREAT blog post Lynn and great comments and Had Enough! , you killed me with that “f word” post back there…omg so hilarious!

  44. error 404 says:

    OK, that one little spoiler for the reunion show makes me hate Kiki all over again. To steal a phrase form Ramoner: I hate her more now than the day I met her!

  45. amy17 says:

    I just hope Andy calls Jill, Luann, and Kelly out on thier behavior at the reunion or he will lose all credibility as a host. Jill is a horrible friend to Luann and anyone else. She even insulted her evite to the thrift store charity event “it was’nt a fancy evite” barf. Luann is a total instigator and seems to love playing Jill against R.A. & B. Team BRASS.

  46. Olivia says:

    Their individual personalities have been pretty much fleshed out.

    Alex, the happy housewife and mother.
    Bethenny, the liberated female.
    Lu Ann, the pretentious bore.
    Kelly, the resident Fruit Loop.
    Jill, the overbearing moron.
    Ramona, -(fill in your own description here since she is all over the place.)
    Sonja, the hedonist.
    Jennifer, the unnecessary.
    Jason, the nice guy.
    Simon, the dilettante.
    Mario, the long sufferer.
    Bobby, the ATM machine.

    • Katiecoo says:

      LOL…perfect! Love Jen- the unnecessary.

      Snort! I can’t stand her now after that snideogram she delivered about Ramona’s wedding. Just be gracious and enjoy your glass of champagne you bitch, instead of complaining about how you have nothing to eat with it. It’s ONE glass of champagne which you are sipping yourself sans a cracker. I do think you will survive the wedding and not die of low blood sugar. if it’s that volatile, carry some damn saltines in your clutch.

      • Mel says:

        She was just jealous that she was not hired for this event. Totally unprofessional. She then tries to soften it up and totally hoses up the old saying “Assholes, everybody has one!” Total Kellyism 🙂 Supposed to be opinions, like assholes, everybody has one and they all stink! Lemons to lemon-aid moment.

        • Buffalo says:

          I know!! I thought it was pretty funny considering Ramona’s vow renewal ceremony was beautiful and seemed pretty amazing. Her skating party for Jil ehhhh not so much.

    • viki55 says:

      Well said!!

    • error 404 says:

      Please! Mario is truly Ramona’s equal… who knew straight guys were so gossipy, complete with bitchy sound bites! After “you need to get a hobby”, “Countless” is the most famous dig of the season, and it wasn’t even said on camera! Mario gets in tons of digs at the other HWs, digs at his wife even when yielding to her, etc…. he is no doormat!

    • sbh says:

      Ramona–the loudmouth career gal.

  47. jennifer says:

    Posted this on Jill’s blog- she probably won’t ok it…(I am slightly ashamed how much I let this woman get to me and piss me off, but oh well!)

    you said you’d changed and then complained about Ramona’s ceremony, and also have been bashing Alex in the press. If you’re ok she hates you, as you claim, then just stop talking about her. Also, maybe she forgave everyone but you because they apologized to her face and talked it out…you 1. apologized on a blog, and 2. didn’t even acknowledge it really hurt her when she talked to you. As Sonja said you talk over plp. Also, you lied to B, you gossiped about her all season….fans can accept that you’re human and make mistakes but you don’t appear to have learned from them.

    ps…I think you’re lying again about the DVD since your assistant tweeted he watched it 2 weeks ago with you!

  48. Had Enough! says:




    • katiecoo says:

      Thanks! I did it! Asked her about behind the scenes at St. John and also did she think Jill was behind Kelly’s paranoia.

  49. Kelly-Has-Big- Shoulders says:

    LMAO!! Bawby the ATM Machine. Good one Olivia.

  50. Kats says:

    My dislike for Kelly, Luann and Jill is off he charts. How anyone could stand them is beyond me. They are so obviously flawed and spoiled it shows and it’s time they get called out for it. I really hope they dont get away with it on the reunion show.

    • ridicurhony says:

      lol, off the charts. Yeah, the reunion clips looked kinda tame, didn’t they?
      I think it will be interesting, but not what we really want. Even if they get served up what they deserve, Kelly, Luann and Jill are not going to accept it and therein lies the problem.

      Told my kid about my little problem this week and he told me I need to just go somewhere like N. Dakota ‘where there’s just fish and rocks’ and relax. I think that’s damned good advice.

      Maybe we should send K, L & J out west somewhere for a two week camping trip so they can sit there and think things over. Take away their blackberries and gumberries.

  51. FreeCupcakes says:

    More reason to hate Jen, in this interview she says she loves Jill and Kelly.
    I had a feeling she was on Jill’s team but this confirms it.


    • Katiecoo says:

      She probably thinks that’s her ticket on to next season. Oh and i can’t wait to hear her snark all over Bethenny’s wedding…NOT! Bitch. First you were just like tofu, now you’ve been marinated in Nastiness and it’s not , as my Grandma would have said, “becoming”.

      • Olivia says:

        Don’t like this lady at all. And according to another blog, Sonja is admitting to being bff with Lu Ann. Double yuck!

    • jb8 says:

      No menton made of Alex of LuMann.

  52. shantygal says:

    Lynn, I agree with most everything you had to say about the finale. One exception is LuAnn. I love her for her complete, unadalterated lack of self-awareness. I find her hysterical to watch. She doesn’t have the evil intent behind her words like shill does. LuLu actually believes she is helping or schooling people with her “countess” counseling. Error 404, said it above, she is comedy gold!

    I don’t for one minute think that Kelly & LuAnn are friends with jill. They were both clearly in different states of vulnerability when the season began. LuAnn because of her divorce and K because of, um, uhh, stupidity? Shill jumped on that opportunity the minute B didn’t live up to her rules. Now she has 2 halfwits to replace the one genuine intelligent friend she once had. LuAnn would have no problem moving on with her life minus jill. I think she has her figured out and will distance herself even further from J.

    As for K. (Heavy sigh) There’s no helping that child. All I can hope for is that the makers of gummy bears create a life size Gummy Foot for K to shove into her PSA spouting mouth.

  53. Katiecoo says:

    I hope some of you are going back and catching comments under the posts you made back there as I’ve been “salt and peppering” (that’s all you Had Enough! lol) this place with kadooze!

  54. Hooked On Housewives says:

    Good morning Lynn. Good morning everyone.

    Another 5 star blog Lynn. Thank you.

    “Jill and Bobby? Not even sitting together. No affectionate exchange of glances, nothing. That’s pretty revealing.”

    I mentioned this lack of emotion between Bawby and Jillousy a few blogs back. It became totally clear to me that any loving emotion between Bawby and Jillousy is long gone if it had actually been there in the first place. Even as the harpy is so so so upset, check them out as they ride away from the surprise visit in the VI. Bawby is in one corner of the car and harpy is is in the other corner. No touching. No hugging. Nothing. It is clear to me that something is very wrong in that relationship.

  55. Had Enough! says:

    Everyone – go here, now, right now:




  56. anniieee says:

    Dear Lynn and all…
    Thanks for the wonderful blogs–I was able to feed my hidden obsession 🙂 All of the people that comment here are so intelligent and on the money. I have so enjoyed lurking, commenting and for the most part, laughing so hard- I almost pee myself. (It’s that getting old stuff). To all of you with stories we don’t know, may you be blessed and touched and know in our own little way, we are here for you. It is a very strange bond we all have together. I feel like I have a “fabulous circle of friends” and have so enjoyed all of you. Lynn–again thanks for putting this together for us. I will keep lurking–but truth be told..I really hate NJ….so will wait for BB….and the reunion shows. Have a wonderful weekend..and now back to reading and catching up.

  59. iceNfire says:

    Good Morining – West Coast checking in and while reading through all the comments I got the feeling that everyone is saying good bye. Not so fast! These woman will continue to keep us chatting with their off camera antics. We still have the reunion show and then the “Great Contract Explosion” (I will explode if Jill is offered a contract) Lynn, like it or not I think many of us are here to stay here!

    It’s all about Jill, still. Some of her 1st words last night were:
    I have butterflies.
    I want her to forgive me.
    I want to sit down and talk.
    I don’t want to be separated.
    I don’t want to drudge up the past.

    What about what BETHENNY wants? She has NO reason to cut you out? REALLY?
    And that was just the opening scene of the Bitch.

    RileyKitty – I saw that you were looking for me but you were long gone by the time I got here. I don’t like spoilers, so I run and hide from you East Coasters on Thursdays.
    Digger – Thanks for the info on Phil. I just really hope it’s not shown in the episode. My heart goes out to Josh and Jake. They shouldn’t have to relive it.

    • katiecoo says:

      YES! And add to that her focus at Ramona’s getting ready to renew her vows, was that of HER having graced the stage with her presence. As if HER deciding to come was the primary focus. I’m telling you, classic Narcissism. And might I add, skeevy.

  60. bravofanfromday1 says:

    I really don’t like Jennifer (that is her name right?) the party planner. I hadn’t cared one way or another about her in the beginning but last night it went into dislike – like disgust dislike.

    That being said, I would continue watching this show alone b/c of Sonja. She is just so charming and sweet. I really like how she stood up for herself too and made the ladies listen to her. Clearly LuAnn and Jill actually respect Sonja somewhat as they didn’t get OFFENDED and call her toxic for her “outburst” but instead quieted up and heard what she had to say and didn’t immediately start fighting her on her opinion. I suppose Sonja is the social heavy hitter in that group.

    So glad the Hoppy’s moved away from the UES – might be easier to avoid the Zarin’s and deLesseps now 🙂

  61. jane says:

    Thank you Lynn, as usual the best Blog , wont watch NJ so i am gone miss all of u . Last but not least I STILL HATE JILL Zarin .

  62. desertgal66 says:

    The ironic part of Jill’s “I refuse to change. I am who I am. Love it or leave it.” is that the genuinely real housewives have decided to leave it. She’s left with sycophants and the inane/insane mess that is Kelly.

    Poetic justice, that’s what that is.

    • katiecoo says:


    • Hooked On Housewives says:

      Usually in RL if you hate/can’t stand/don’t want to be around someone you put that person on ignore. Not Jillousy. In her fab life it’s just the opposite. The more she hates you the more you come up in her converstaion.

      Note to the head harpy: Alex could give two shits about you. If you make a run at Alex next season she will take you to the hoop and I’ll be on the sidelines cheering.

      • boston02127 says:

        @Hooked, I agree on what you posted about hate/can’t stand.
        All the hate Jill holds hurts her more than anyone. Too bad she’s too dumb to realize it.

  63. ImToula says:

    If Jill was able to swallow her pride she would have been able to repair all her relationships.

    Lynn: I’m mostly a lurker here, but I just wanted to say thanks so much for the blog. I have read and loved every word since I found it.

    To all the posters: A heartfelt thanks to you all as well. I just recently left a horrible, horrible marriage after 20+ years. While it was the best decision I ever made, it definitely hasn’t been an easy time for me. When things get difficult, I know I can always come here for a smile and a laugh. I can truly say I have laughed more with y’all in the past few weeks than I ever did with him…….so thank you

  65. katiecoo says:

    Ok I must state this obvious observation.

    Note the difference in SINCERITY between Ramona/Mario’s ceremony and vows to those of Vicky Gunvalson and her pet husband Don (whom she despises). Night and freaking day.

  66. anutha hata says:

    I’d really like to see Bravo clean-house for next season. Jill & Kelly are my main picks .(to leave)
    The only one that I’d be really sad to see go would be Alex & Simon, and if Bethenny doesn’t have her own show, I’d want her to stay.
    Luann has always been a bore for me. I do like Sonja. Ramona? I could take or leave.
    When it comes to picking new housewives, I really would like to see Bravo have some diversity with the NYC, or even NJ cast. The fact that they use all white women for both series is just wasteful when you have real diversity to choose from in the area.
    In fact, being from this area, I know that when I travel to other states, a lot of the time I have a distinct culture-shock, just because I’m used to having a mix of races in my daily life, and many areas of the country are made-up of completely white people.
    I’m not talking about putting “token” people on, just for the sake of it, but really when I watch NY & NJ Housewives, even though I am a white person myself, I feel a little of that same culture-shock that I have when I find myself in all-white areas.
    Besides having my own ideas about casting, the main thing is that I really don’t want to support Kelly & Jill by watching them next season. Kelly has been Twittering that RHWONY actually NEEDED her BS for ratings! And it may be true that she brought drama, but I sure as heck wouldn’t consider what she did as “entertainment”.
    As far as “Bethenny getting Married”, really it didn’t sound interesting to me, at ALL, until the strength of Bethenny’s character was brought-out by what happened to her this season.
    And yes, I like a little bit of drama, but the Kelly kind & Jill kind, is something that I’ve had enough of.
    And really I am considering Boycotting next season if Jill & Kelly, or either one is still on the show.

      anutha hata – I so agree! In fact I said pretty much the same thing a while back. I work for a university so I am used to diversity in my daily life. I would love to see a strong, educated, accomplished African American, Asian or Latina woman on RHONY.

    Lynn – have a great time this weekend, I know you will. Please tell A & S how much we adore them, despite Simon’s outfit he wore to the ceremony, (wink). I must now attend to my filthy, pet hair ridden house & weed infested garden that has been neglected these oh-so-many weeks. 🙂

    • Kokuanani says:

      Just picture grabbing Jill by the neck as you pull out each weed, and think of her ratty extensions as you clean up that pet hair.

      Should make your jobs more pleasant — or at least entertaining.

      • shantygal says:

        Will do, all the while singing “Money can’t buy you Cla-ass”. Hey, I can sing just as off key as her. Damn you Andy, I can’t get that garbage out of my head.

    i love love love love jill zarin!!!!!!! lynne, you and all your followers are such losers!!!!!!!.. jill zarin is gorgeous, rich, and adored by alot of people that count! who are you by the way,, a nobody im sure!! so jill can be a bitch, so what!! get over it! Bethenny so played the prego card!!!! that is the only reason people swayed her way!! i dont care how many times bethenny says “im not the victim” STFU you bitch! Bethenny picked fights with jill zarin, on purpose, just to get jill out of her life!!! The only reason she wanted jill out of her life was because she was done using her! And because she wanted to take all the credit for her supposed own success!! Jill helped bethenny with her success, and then bethenny stabbed her in the back!!!! Lynne, get a life!!!!!!!!!! Jill Zarin is not going anywhere, and Bravo doesnt listen to petty people like you!!!!!!!!

        I counted 54 exclamation points. At $20 a pop, that would fund a nice weekend in Chicago to attend Alex & Simon’s book signing party. Pay up loser!

      Were you water boarded or something? You make absolutely no sense whatsoever. And what’s with the field of exclamation points, is that supposed to make us sit up and take notice or what?

      Go find a blog where you can share your fantasies with those who adore bad behavior. The title of this blog says it all.

      And, no you did not hurt our feelings after all that. Imagine, a whole 20 minutes you will never get back.

      2 words to describe your paragraph:

  69. TraceyK says:

    Hi gang! I haven’t finished reading the blog (yet) but wanted to get my thoughts down on Sonja. I do like her. And I think I pinpointed, for me, what is so likeable. She appreciates. She’s always up for a new experience. That really struck me when she was sitting on a couch on the yacht, talking with Kelly and Bethanny. Now, I’m sure Sonja’s been on her fair share of yachts, but yet she was sitting there saying ‘here we are on this wonderful couch, on this beautiful yacht….’ She wasn’t jaded; she enjoyed and appreciated being there. Sonja reminds me of something that happened when my teenage niece was visiting one summer. She saw I was headed off on an errand wanted to go. I said ‘nah, you’re not going to like it. I have to go to the junkyard.’ She immediately said, ‘I’d love to go to the junkyard!’. That’s what Sonja would do and that’s why we like her.

    • katiecoo says:

      Sonja had me with that repeated inexpensive hair piece. To me, that’s unpretentious. Jill Z for example would never allow herself to be seen on camera without full professional makeup/hair glamorama do-up. Sonja sips a cocktail, puts on her own makeup, throws that hair doodle on her tight ponytail (I have one too, they are great and way inexpensive and fun in a pinch) and waltzes in with her dramatic late entrance. I love it.

      • Olivia says:

        Good point. I think I could invite her to my house and she wouldn’t comment or care about the dust or the Target items that live here as well.

        She just seems like a fun person who is not out to cut anyone down but to enjoy herself.

        I’ll be very disappointed if this were not the case.

  71. lillybee says:

    What was Jill thinking about when the make=up gift she gives Bethenny is her home-made potato pancakes? I always thought that potato pancakes need to be eaten fresh or they become greasy. I thought that it was a very insulting gift especially to a chef.

    • katiecoo says:

      ME TOO!!! There was some weird hidden message in that which I think was more “never forget how Bobby and I FED you when you were a hungry poor homeless person!”. Is this potato pancake peace offering (which by the way insults the restaurant) in the Jewish Book of Etiquette?

    • Mel says:

      I thought the same thing. What a weird choice for a gift. Next time, go with flowers. Brad will tell ya- when in doubt go with flowers. HA

      • iceNfire says:

        Weird choice for a gift to a chef or in kellyland cook. Cook not a chef cook. (as she shove gum berries in her mouth)

  74. Kokuanani says:

    jill zarin is going nowhere!! your a loser lynne

    I suggest that YOU take yourself back to 8th grade and learn a little grammar:

    1) We normally begin sentences with a capital letter;
    2) It’s “you’re” [= you are] not “your.”

    • viki55 says:

      Also a proper noun, such as person’s name, needs some caps too;)

            Hi Jill!!!!!!!!!!!!! Posting those *anonymous* comments again? It’s Jill, I tell you, it’s Jill.

            Btw, a waiter at the restaurant told me that Bethenny asked him to discreetly deposit those pancakes in the mens’ room trash. The cockroaches could enjoy them there.

          • Kokuanani says:

            At least Bethenny was kind enough not to suggest feeding them to Kelly’s horses.

    Luann: Money Can’t Buy You a singing voice.

    Sonja: Money Can’t Buy You guarantees through psychics for the future (sorry you have to live it out to see how it turns out).

    Jennifer: Money Can’t Buy You a do-over on this show (sorry, you lost us).

    Kelly: Money Can’t Buy You mental stability (but it can buy you the meds).


    Jill: Money Can’t Buy You out of your Narcissism. (sorry Bobby and Ally, you’re stuck with it).

    Wow! 180 comments already! I spent most of the morning (well, since 10:30 at least) to cook for the day. When it’s in the mid 80s or higher, any cooking only manages to heat up the house more. 😦 It’s not so bad right now, but did get hotter. Have to start cooking even earlier to beat the heat!

    • Olivia says:

      I am doing that right now. Have to stay out of the kitchen while the oven is on because I am too cheap to turn on the A/C.

  78. oopsy says:

    First I would like to tell Jetta I wish you all the best. I love this place! couple of things, I won’t stray too far from the topic, we all saw how nice Bethenny was to Kelly on the island when she realized there was a problem yet Luanne and Jill mocked her at lunch even though they KNEW she had a breakdown. Luanne remarked, “that’s probably why you don’t have girlfriends” and Jill’s comment, “what, you were afraid they would steal your jelly beans?”( snicker snicker) what terrible people! The biggest reason I hate Jill is the “Bobby put food in your mouth and a roof over your head” comment. I thought B was a guest? (Jill wanted a free chef, probably, we did see B preparing food as she talked to Gloria.) What kind of person offers hospitality then throws it in your face? She was invited to the Hamptons and she went, when my friends in the Hamptons (after I MAKE friends in the Hamptons) invite me I’m gonna go! Now, I have a new hit song! Tell me what you think. (sung to the tune of elegence is learrrrrrned) The countess can kiss my aa-ass, she doesn’t have any cla-ass, My stomach just chur-rned my friends, her disk should be bur-rned oh yaeh!(repeat) Now ladies let’s be wise and marry only older guys and get your nookie on the side when you are able, Careful not to blow your cover if you take a younger lover like your driver or a trainer from the stable, The countess can kiss my aa-ass, she doesn’t have any cla-ass my stomach just chur-rned my friends, her disk should be bur-rned oh yeah!(repeat) don’t get caught by getting sloppy ’cause you’ll piss off sugar poppy and he’ll drop you like a rock and you’ll be poor, so you better listen honey, get your hands on all his money, do it fast before he boots you out the door (repeat chorus) so? what do you think? number one hit or what? any one have Chris Young’s Number?

      Bravo, Brava and Bravaletta! Put it to music and get on the Kelly channel with it (sorry, that was a joke). 😉

      • oopsy says:

        Glad you liked it! It’s hard not to poke fun of her; she is, in the immortal words of bugs bunny, “what a maroon!”

    • FreeCupcakes says:

      I also hated that comment about Bobby feeding her, it’s classic guilt trip talk. She did nice things for B so that she could throw it back in her face. Bethenny now sees it for what it really was.
      Your talent for writing songs has not gone unnoticed. You captured the very essence of Jill, Kelly and Luanne.

      • oopsy says:

        Thanks! unfortunately I can’t sing like Luanne; I have a little trouble singing off key. It just doesn’t feel natural!

  79. iceNfire says:

    Does Jill even have any friends? We’ve seen Ramona’s friends on yacht, Alex’s friends at sons B-day party, Bethenny’s friends at Jason’s B-day party….Have we ever seen Jill’s friends? She can’t come back for season 4 she has no friends. Oh God what if she tries to befriend Alex? LOL I can’t even imagine.

    • A former Jill fan says:

      I saw a post by jill (maybe it was her website) last night that said the ladies in the show aren’t her REAL friends, that her REAL friends weren’t on the show and didn’t want to be on it.

      Translation: I don’t have any REAL friends!

    • boston02127 says:

      I noticed that too when she had the ice skating party. When she was talking she said “I’ve invited a small group of family and friends” So no I don’t think she does have friends and I think that’s why the NY show means so much to her. She had nothing before it started.

      Does that make sense?
      I’m so distracted, on TLC a woman is having a baby at home in a little pool.
      OMG, I’ll be childless forever.

      • oopsy says:

        Speaking of the skating party, Simon blogs that he noticed Jill mentioning to Jen during the planning meeting that she recently hosted a skating party. He said he was at that party and she WASN’T the hostess, I can’t remember their names but I bet they’re happy hearing Jill take the credit. She’s an idiot. Did she think they wouldn’t hear her say it on t.v?

    Hey, iceNfire! Glad to see you here today! We missed you last night!

    Trolls are out hot and heavy aren’t they. Oh, well, at least we can have some fun! LOL!

        it’s usually the same message over and over. And, because of that, it makes one wonder each time: is this jill this time, or kelly?

        And it really doesn’t matter which one it is or even if it really is them, because they get blamed for it anyway. And why is that? Because of Amazongate!

  85. kmuellfa says:

    The bravo page for Bethenny’s new show has 2 new previews up. Sooo cute and funny! I can’t wait!

  86. katiecoo says:

    Watching the Reunion previews–ok a couple of observations:

    It is 100% obvious to me that Kelly is protecting Jill as her “source” for the Bethenny leaking info about her to the press supposedly. Watch the dynamics on this one. Jill has to be scared shitless that loose cannon Kelly might leak that out.

    Kelly’s hair looks like total crap.

    Andy is super nervous about “being too hard on Jill” when talking to Ramona. LOVE. THAT!

    • Satchels of Jelly Beans says:

      I found Andy’s conversation with Ramona hilarious. He asks if he was to hard on Ramona, and Ramona answers with some reference to, “the whole book”. It took a minute, but Andy realizes that Ramona meant that he, “threw the book at her.” She goes on to say basically that he was too hard on her, and that she has her good points. He then asks Ramona if he was too hard on Jill, and without blinking (ha ha), Ramona says, no, Jill put herself out there and she had it coming!

      The other interesting part of that little clip was when Avery came in. She walks in and says something like, “Oh, I didn’t know there would be . . . ” I think she didn’t realize that she’d be on camera in back. Instead of being a brat about it, she’s polite and moves on. Andy tries to tell her that he’s, “working on Bieber for her”. I think that Bieber was on GMA or the Today Show this morning.

      • coco_butterfly says:

        Andy Cohen is a cool guy. What a talent, I love to watch him as much as the housewives. I thought his comment to Avery about Bieber was cute, teasing and sweet. He comes across like a nice uncle and fun friend. Yes, he should throw the book at Jill and mental case Kelly, but he’s a business man. He even got after Seinfeld for making the toilet comment. By the way, I thought that was a great show. Not so much Ripa, but loved her impersonations. She’s a talent but ohhh so skinny. My dog could chew on her and not feel full.

        That’s it….love that Andy.

    • A former Jill fan says:

      That’s the one I watched last night and thought “jill sure is being quiet!” but never made that connection. Looking at it again, near the end and after Andy says it won’t be resolved, jill sure is sucking on those cheeks isn’t she! Like she’s sucking on the lemons that kelly used for her kellade. Or was it the lemonade?

  87. anniieee says:

    Just went scrolling thru to catch all the “salt and pepper” and –you know what? This is just a very nice place to sit – read- pass some time–and share some insights. You ALL are terrific… thanks!

    • boston02127 says:

      And laugh 🙂

      • A former Jill fan says:

        And I’m getting used to scrolling up and down looking for the new comments. Didn’t like it at first. The only time it doesn’t work for me is when I’ve been off a while and there are a million comments and I’m trying to get caught up quickly! Ugh! It takes about a minute to post when there are that many comments.

  88. A former Jill fan says:

    Why is Bravo giving us some really good previews? Does it mean there are even more jucier moments they’re not showing us yet? I hope so!

    I mean, we already see jill jumping up and stomping off in one of the previews from last night’s show! Wonder if she comes back…

    Another thought from something jill posted last night:

    The thing about jill and a lot of people who are defending her is that they’re using faulty logic: just because jill does 1-2-3, that means everybody else does 1-2-3 likewise. NO! Just because jill is the way she is does not mean everybody else is like her! Not all people are narcissistic. Not all people are liars. Not all people are petty, backstabbers, nor cowards!

    Just because Jill says that everyone is just like her doesn’t mean it’s true. Just because jill does bad things, doesn’t mean everyone does them too. Isn’t that how a child would think until they learn more about human nature?

    Isn’t it paranoid too? Because Jill lies, plants stories/rumors, etc., she thinks everyone will do that to her too.

    • A former Jill fan says:

      I just finished watching the video preview where Alex calls Jill out on her behavior of running her mouth, then later apologizing (which Jill doesn’t always do) when confronted. There again Jill says something like, “we all do that.” Alex calls her on it and says that’s not true.

    • Kat says:

      A former Jill fan: “Isn’t it paranoid too? Because Jill lies, plants stories/rumors, etc., she thinks everyone will do that to her too.”

      It serves her right for underhandedness. You reap what you sow.
      She has denied herself true friendship.

  89. Sue says:

    E! has an ummmm interesting article with Jill. http://www.eonline.com/uberblog/the_awful_truth/b184134_jill_zarin_kellys_normal_in_better.html

    Some exerpt’s:

    “I would like the show to be more like Sex and the City, where the girls celebrate each other and have fun and share wonderful experiences, and unfortunately it didn’t go that way,” she adds.

    “[Kelly] is a normal and nice person who comes from a good place with a good heart,” says Jill, defending one of her closer friends on the show. “I think it was just they were filming them almost 24 hours a day for four days, and they weren’t used to that, and there was alcohol involved. A lot of pressure, a lot of stress and influence.”

    “Because of the tone this season, Zarin isn’t sure that she’ll return for another season, but says, “I am open to anything. I hope that the show goes back to where it came from next year.”

    Yes, drama does sell, but the drama only comes from their own actions. Did Jill even watch the Scary Island episode? Even if Kelly was drinking that was NOT normal behavior. Sorry.

    • katiecoo says:

      It can never go back Jill, at least for you. You let that Narci-kitty out of the bag and she scratched all the furniture and peed all over the carpet and we’ve agreed she’s untrainable. Sex and the City? You’re kidding right? Um, that’s kind of what Bethenny Getting Married? is going to be…without YOU.

    • ridicurhony says:

      just more excuses, for herself and for Kelly. It backfired on Jill to use Kelly to badmouth the other women. Enlisting Kelly to say to ppl what Jill wants to say is the same as using my mother, bless her heart, she gets everything so convoluted the message is NOT conveyed, the messenger comes out looking insane, the real culprit is frustrated, and the receiver knows it was the culprit anyway.

      I agree with other posters who say Jill is nervous at reunion taping – peeing her chair that someone will figure out she was behind the bad press story and everything else. That’s why she’s pointing out how stupid Kelly is in an effort to shut her up. She should be scared, because Kelly gets abusive when she’s pissed. Ugly. ugly, ugly.

    • Kokuanani says:

      I submitted this comment to E! Online. We’ll see if they post it.

      E! Online, please, if you want to get information on Real Housewives, DON’T go to that lying, back-stabbing, narcissitic ***** Jill Zarin. Yes, I know she calls every media outlet hourly, attempting to get on to combat the truth that others say about her, and trying to sell her wretched “book.” But really, don’t you have an iota of intelligence and ability to see through her crap? Jill Zarin is nasty and worthless. Thousands of us who watch the show are praying that she doesn’t return. Don’t be an idiot, E!, and feel her gigantic, delusional ego.

      [They did block out “bitch.”]

  90. RAR says:

    Just think – Alex has held Bethenny’s little daughter, Ramona’s held that little baby, Sonja has probably held that baby. All they have to do is say so on the reunion and we can watch Jill explode on camera!

    I hate jill zarin

    • katiecoo says:

      On the reunion previews B says she left the baby at home. GOOD THINKING. WHy put the baby in the harm’s way of Psycho Kelly or Sicko Jill? I bet Jill was seething she couldn’t get a photo-op with the baby to use for her own benefit.

  91. katiecoo says:

    In the previews (reunion) when Jill is haplessly trying to defend herself against Goddess of War Alex McCord (unflappable) she blathers about how “we’re not friends, we never were”. Um, didn’t we see Jill trying to either a. get air time or b. try to do some damage control by going in to Brooklyn to Alex’s apt. to try and mend their “friendship”?

    Everytime she opens her mouth she’s lying or contradicting her own sick self!

    • jsbfuzz says:

      I just so despise that woman!!! I watched the finale again, and Jill keeps stepping over herself time and time again. In the shot where Bethenny tells her she needs to change & Jill she she won’t – the look on Alex’s face in the background is PRICELESS!!!!!

    • Sue says:

      I was thinking the same thing. Jill was all sweety weety when she went to Alex’s house, but when Alex got chummy with Ramona and Bethenny that just cracked Jill. The funny thing is that Alex was “the messenger”, but it was Bethenny’s words that she related. I think what put Jill over the edge was the fact that ALEX was close enough to Bethenny to even relate that message. Bethenny was like her second dog, her possession. Jill put Bethenny in her kennel and when she wanted to play and parade around with Bethenny again, when she was ready, Jill finally opened the door to the kennel.

      Jill misses Bethenny because she doesn’t have someone who she can really talk to and who is intelligent to talk to. Funny thing is when you’re a nasty human being to someone else they generally do not want anything to do with you later.

    Hi Everyone,

    Love this blog. Thank you Lynne!! I read all of them and try to read all of the comments. This is just too much fun. I am so glad we still have the reunion show because I am so sad it is over! I am sorry if I am mentioning something already posted but did everyone see the cover of US with Kelly, Bethenny and Jillzilla. I have that she gets on the cover of anything! But love that Bethenny is in the middle. And I want to thank everyone for all the tidbits and links to more “gawwwsip.” I tell you, I blog with a fabulous circle of people!

        A poem for iceNfire:
        (I hope it is not an insult to your blog name – it is one of my favorite Frost poems – and short enough to remember)

        Some say the world will end in fire,
        Some say in ice.
        From what I’ve tasted of desire,
        I hold with those who favor fire.
        But if it had to perish twice,
        I think I know enough of hate
        to know that for destruction is
        Is also great
        And would suffice.

    Please DO NOT feel sorry for me. I did not know these ladies before the show and am grateful to have made some of them into real friends. None of my real friends wanted to be on the show. I did it to have fun, open doors and like to take chances. You say I show my true self? Do you know me? met me? You watch and judge all of us on a TV SHOW and think you know us to say such mean things? You are a friend in Michigan? Really? With friends like you…seriously…did you read what you wrote?

    If you are still watching me on the show then that just proves to Bravo that drama sells. Maybe you shouldn’t watch the show and back up what you say. My life is wonderful and I don’t live through other peoples problems to make myself feel better. Jill

    Jill is so pathetic! She wants people to engage with the show when she is popular but when she is criticized, she says that people are too engaged in her life and shouldn’t watch the show?? I don’t understand.

    We shouldn’t watch the show if she is going to be on it. She said to her critics “Maybe you shouldn’t watch the show and back up what you say.”

    Noted, Jill.

    • The Digger says:

      Oh, I guess she is saying that she didn’t know Ramona or consider her a real friend before the show – none of her real friends wanted to be on the show. Hey Ramona, see this? The lady you say you have been friends with for 15 years says you were never a friend. The woman who accosted you on the island with her rountine, “I thought we were friends, I guess we are not friends,” never really considered you HER friend.

      Jill Zarin, Biggest loser I’ve had to be exposed to in a very long time. What a freak. A legend in her own mind who a compilation of fabrications and lies. I wonder what her “real” friends think of her when they watch the show.

    • iceNfire says:

      Jill is on a campaign to let us know we don’t know the “real” Jill. She posted to 3 of my phantom facebooks asking me why I’m so mean. LOL

        I don’t think she’s capable of being a real friend to anybody. She has no depth. I think Bethenny brought out the best in her, demanded some authenticity. Now she misses Bethenny because she realizes that was one of the most valuable relationships she ever had and will ever have.

    I have to DVD with me..what did I lie about exactly? I just couldn’t watch it live with everyone. You need to read how others perceived the season. You did not see what everyone else saw. We all gossip about each other or you wouldn’t have anything to gossip about. Did you talk about the show today? Isn’t that Gossip? I hate when people say “she gossips”. That is what we do. WE ALL DO. Tape record your day today and you will see how many times you talk about someone not in the room. I do not bash Alex or anyone in press any more or less than any of us has at one time or another. . Please copy and paste it. JUST BECAUSE YOU SAY IT DOESN”T MAKE IT TRUE. Sorry ..the truth does hurt. Jill

    If I do come back..I will not be fighting! Jill

    June 4th, 2010 at 11:26 am

    Great advice…I admit even I wouldn’t do over things I did. I am happy to be able to look back reflectively at the good, the bad and the ugly. I promise myself everyday..to try to be a better friend, mother, sister and wife. This was an eye opening experience. I didn’t kill anyone. She didn’t kill anyone. All is good in the world..as Kelly says…it’s sunny! jill

    Jill needs to hire a PR person and stop defending Kelly. Kelly is like the plague and should be avoided at all costs.

    • The Digger says:

      If I tape record my day it does NOT include talking about anyone behind their back or being a gossip monger. This woman, her life is a void. To spend your life shopping, primping, gossiping, talking behind people’s backs, creating press, feeding your narcisism and planning your next revenge on your enemy is just so shallow and void. How can anyone be happy with a life like this? She has no soul and zero depth of character.

      Jill’s favorite defense is “but YOU do the same thing!” whether she’s correct or not on that. “We ALL do this” as if this makes her abhorrent behavior right, even if “everyone” was doing it, which they are NOT. Goddess McCord is masterful (and well prepared) to deflect this crazy making vortex of Narcissism while holding her cool.

    thank u so much for doing this blog. I look forward to reading every new post. You did a excellent job and I don’t know what I am going to do with my time without your blogging and RHNY. You have given a true and honest evulation of every housewife. Enjoy your week-end with Simon and Alex and try to get some juicy gossip. Looking forward to your blogs on Big Brother

  98. MAMAZ says:

    I loved that Bethenny stuck up for Alex during her lunch with Jill. And after Ramona told Jill she really liked Alex. I’m sure it’s costing JZ some sleep, lol.
    I was so embarrassed for LuAnn last night. I can’t believe she asked “are you ready to rock and roll?” Well first off Luann you weren’t singing rock. Secondly who even asks that outside of an arena? Or at all anymore. It was like soooooo 1979. The lip synching was much too obvious. At one point she stopped moving her mouth and the vocals continued. Ashley Simpson much, LuAnn?
    Jennifer tries way too hard to fit in. I think when you are the new kid you should take a back seat and not rip on other peoples parties, planners, dates, etc. She could learn a lot from Sonja. Speaking of Sonja how beautiful did she look at Ramona’s ceremony? I am looking forward to more of her next season. I think Jill will be in her shadow if she comes back. And that would be more gratifying for me than if Jill was gone. It would eat her up inside.
    Kelly’s little craft project gift was ridiculous. Why would she draw any more attention to that horrible trip?
    For me one of the most gag inducing points was when Jill was so proud of saying “Surprise” when she visited Ramona before her renewal. Remember she says to Kelly, “Wait for it, I yelled Surprise!” And Kelly dutifully laughs. You know Jill had been working on that for days, practicing in front of her mirror, trying it out on Bawby and Ally. And it wasn’t even clever or witty! So sad.
    The problem with Jill and Kelly is that they have no emotional depth. It’s all clothes, parties, jewelry, lunch. We want more Alex and Simon with the boys doing creative, loving, fun stuff. Bravo, if you are gonna have kids on anyway let’s see more of them interacting with their families in postitive, healthy ways. More Alex nurturing her fledgling friendships with Ramona, Bethenny and Sonja. More Alex getting stronger and coming into her own.

    Reminds me of Ike Turner saying he doesn’t beat his wife any more than other husbands do.

    • A former Jill fan says:

      There it is, that faulty reasoning. Jill thinks others will treat her likes she treats others or do what she does because she does it! Childish thinking!

    • emt2 says:

      exactly. the other women also admit when they are wrong and apologize. jill never takes responsibility or if she apologizes, it’s a fake apology and she turns around and does the same thing again.

  101. mia says:

    I kind of get what Jen was saying pertaining to the planner. Its important to maintain yourself and present yourself in a certain manner especially when you are your own business.

    But you don’t say it the way she did, and right in front of the woman. That was really rude.

    Although I’ve always personally found the Pierre one of those “all style no taste” New York establishments, I think the planner gave Ramona what she wanted and that’s what really matters at the end of the day.

    • emt2 says:

      Jen is sour grapes. She did Lou Mann’s release party but did LouAnn even mention that or thank her? Not so much. What does that tell you about LouMann? Did anyone else who went to the party actually acknowledge that Jen planned the event? No one. Not even nice Sonja.

      I’ve noticed that Lou Mann never supports her friend’s endeavors unless it is self-serving. For example, LouMann, Sonja and Alex appeared on Extra together. Sonja shared a tweet about being with LouMann on the way to the show. She shared a photo of the three of them on set. LouMann tweets “I’m going to be on the Insider. I’M on my way…”

      She never gives a shout out to the other women, either. Never. Everyone else does to a certain extent but never LouAnn. That’s why is a pure narcissist and incapable of being a good friend unless it is serving her benefit in some way (inviting Jill to stay with her in the Hamptons because SHE was lonely, using Sonja for her great apartment to host her Cocktails and Couture party, having dinner with Kelly and Sonja in order to embarrass Kelly about Max and her love life/divorce.

      LouMann is very calculating and duplicitous. Just like her frenemy Jill.

      • coco_butterfly says:

        OMG, I noticed that too, but just didn’t think about it too much. Ludog really thinks she’s talented. I remember her in an early season hanging-out in a bar with a younger woman, trying to recapture that feeling of being young and cool. I felt sorry for her then. I also felt sorry for her children that she left with the maid. No wonder her husband left her. She’s no countess and she sure doesn’t have any class.

  102. FredTheCatTravels says:

    Jill, if you are reading, STFU. Really. Just STFU, stop talking. You make my head hurt.

    Stop telling people that you went through a bunch of stuff and it made you act weird. Everyone else went through stuff and no one else acted like poo on the bottom of a shoe.

    No one believes your bullshit.

    Your only hope is to go crawl under a rock and hope everyone forgets this season. Trying to play the media with the “I may not come back next year” card will not do anything but blow up in your face and make you look even worse than you already do now. No one will be begging you to stay. LuAnn has already moved on and Kelly doesn’t know which state she is in so you’ll get no loyalty there.

    Jill, just STFU.

    • jennifer says:


      I agree….

      She doesn’t get that telling someone I never gossiped about you, when you did is not just gossiping…its also lying.

  103. lillybee says:

    Jill, grow up. You are not in grade school any more. Your attitudes are not attractive.

  104. Olivia says:

    Does Jill Zarin really believe that the only reason we watch that show is because of her? She tells one of the above commentators “not to watch” which is equivalent of inviting everyone to “just leave” when things aren’t going her way. We watch because we like other members of the cast you idiot!

    And does she get even more ridiculous by getting on Twitter and fighting back and forth with people she doesn’t know? Better the silence and leave them guessing you dumb fool!

    In case she has failed to notice, Kelly’s absurd nonstop Twittering did her few favors. We all saw what we saw. We all processed what it meant you hateful moron face! No amount of Twittering back and forth is going to change what occurred. You blew it big time you loud mouthed, insulting, back stabbing, vicious snakeface!

  105. emt2 says:

    Jill has a point. They all bash each other to some extent but Jill takes it too far and plays too dirty. She also recruits people for her team and try to intimidate others to go against her perceived enemies.

    A good example is when she wrote that email to Kelly about being friendly with Bethenny. Kelly even said that “It’s Jill’s fight with Bethenny. Not my fight with Bethenny.” The only lucid moment of the season for Kelly, btw.

    She has said over and over again that it was Alex’s fault that things went haywire this season. She tried to blame Alex during her sit-down lunch with Bethenny (B defended Alex, of course), she tried to blame Alex when Ramona asked her to leave St John’s (Completely dismissing the fact that Jill had asked ALL of the ladies not to go on the trip with Ramona in the first place and LouMann was the only one who listened. Also, Bethenny didn’t want Jill in St. John. Neither did Ramona and Sonjya for that matter. For her to just blame Alex is ridiculous.), she tried to blame Alex for exacerbating her fight with B when she delivered the message, but the truth is that Jill had already said to everyone who would listen that she was done with B and had even gone as far as recruiting the other housewives for her team (remember at Ungaro when she asked Alex whose side was she on and Alex said no one’s side. In the talking head, Jill said I have no problems if she doesn’t want to pick sides but if she’s not on my team, then we are going to have problems.)

    Jill took everything too far and won’t own up to what she did in any consistent matter. She says one thing in the press, writes another in her blog, films yet another version for a tv show. Be consistent. Stop talking about Alex and Bethenny. Talk about your own life.

    She just can’t admit that she lost the season because of her own behavior and the lengths that she went to on and off season and continues to go to presently.

    The stunts she pulled after the filming of the season is what people really have an issue with but she is too narcissistic to understand that. Calling people stupid and Anti-Semitic because they don’t like something she had done or said? She is always the victim.

    • A former Jill fan says:

      i think there’s one distinct difference in, for instance, Alex bashing anybody and Jill’s bashing. Alex “bashes” only in response to being bashed or someone bashing someone else. jill bashes because she can.

      • emt2 says:

        That’s exactly right. Alex responds to aggression, she is not the instigator of aggression.

        Haven’t you noticed that Jill is trying to blame Alex for how badly Jill came off this season? I cannot believe it. Saying that Alex is a gossip, toxic, butting her nose in Jill’s business, etc.

        Jill takes no responsibility.

        • A former Jill fan says:

          Jill has to blame somebody, like Bethenny said to Jill when jill called Alex toxic, Jill had called her (Bethenny) toxic before.

  106. Arlene says:

    Don’t know if this was mentioned before but did anyone pay attention to Jill at Ramona’s ceremony complaining about the lack of food? If ever I had to bitch slap someone it would have been her last night.

    • katiecoo says:

      Yes I sure did. It’s the same as Ramona’s launch party not having enough “healthy” food, no one offering her a bathroom or water during her ambush…there’s always not enough of *something* for Jill.

      Can you imagine complaining about having to drink champagne before a wedding (I’m sure expensive champagne) because there were no snacks to go with it? If your blood sugar problem is that dramatic, bring a damn package of saltines in your designer bag, Bitch.

    • The Digger says:

      YUP. And her statement started out with making the announcement to team Jill, “Oh, we have a problem already”. She is like a vulture and waits to find things to jump on and criticize about everything. Everything. Loved when she surprised! Ramona in her room and she did a visual inspection of the room. You know in her mind she was saying, “Oh, it it were me I would have rented the penthouse, the carpet colour is ugly, the pillow does not match the curtains, hated the furniture…” She is in constant competition with Ramona.

      I cannot STAND the way she does those visual inspections with her look you over from head to toe of what people are wearing as if she is sizing them up to be sure she has the best dress on or the most expensive jewelry.

      Someone really needs to big time bitch slap this woman.

    good lord, I leave the house for a few hours & have to spend the next 2 catching up, I love it! (I had 3 exclamation points there, but removed 2 because I saw the smackdown of a troll LOL I don’t ever want to be mistaken for a troll because I got too excited.) I just watched all the reunion previews. I don’t understand how Kelly can spout off that she is speaking about facts (that Beth’s PR people planted the stories about her) when she has no proof. Isn’t she supposed to be a journalist (I use the term as loosely as I can here people LOL)? You can’t post, write or say something is a fact unless you can back it up. And then when she gets flustered she doesn’t want to talk about it anymore. It becomes inappropriate.

    Kelly, FYI, if you are discussing someone & they are not present, it is gossip. Try as you might to convince yourself that you don’t gossip, you are Gladys Kravitz with bad boobs.

    • A former Jill fan says:

      LOL! I agree about Kelly. Where are the stories she claims where Bethenny defamed her and her family? It’s easy enough to find on the net.

      Just like there was no confirmation that Bethenny had a baby boy and we went looking for the source of Jill’s information. The info was there if you just looked a while–that twerp maxine.

      Look for anything bashing kelly and her family in the press by Bethenny–nonexistent. It’s not there. Zip! Nada! Zilch!

      Only in Kelly’s mind and possibly via Jill’s lips.

  109. boston02127 says:

    Did anyone notice Jill when Kelly arrived, Jill says “hiiiiiiiiiiiiiii”.
    When Jill and Kelly saw each other and looked at each others outfits Jill yelled ahhhhhhh and did a little dance. (just like Kelly does).
    Jill copied Bethenny wearing boots.
    Jill copied the whole fur vest mess.
    Jill copied Bethenny wearing jeans.
    Jill copied Jen’s outfit only she wore a pink top.
    She once met with LuMan and complimented her on her outfit then said: “I want everything you have”. I found that odd.
    I think this has something to do with her love for Bethenny. Bethenny brought her in to the 21st centry. I think Jill was a plain old ho-hum before this show.

    I’m betting next season Jill comes back with a hair cut…….*Ramona
    I bet she comes back thinner………..Everyone eles is pretty thin.
    If she’s still tolerating Kelly I bet she comes back wearing raggy flowing cloths like Kelly.
    I bet she has some type of “loving” family get together proving she loves Bobby.

    It’s like she has no syle or ideas of her own. I”ve noticed this since the show started.

  110. katiecoo says:

    Did you guys read in the NYmag article about how odd it was that Jill did not eat and Bethenny did during the lunch scene? I love it that Bethenny was calm enough to be able to sit there and eat lunch (and not those nasty latkes) while Jill was so stirred up she couldn’t eat? I wonder if she was drinking (cuz we know how much she hates to drink without snacks around a la Ramona’s ceremony).

  111. Arlene says:

    LOL. speaking of boobs. Love how Jill declared it for the world how lopsided Kelly’s boobs were. Classic Jill. She can always be counted on for her great observations.

    • Mel says:

      Not only that but she immediately reached out and grabbed ahold of Kelly’s top and gave it a yank. She then proceeded to tell Kelly to take note of where her dress is so she isn’t popping out of the top of it. Kind of funny being that Luanne did the same thing to Jill with her bright pink top at the cd release!!

  112. The Digger says:

    Bobby is never around. Where is Bobby? Bitch doesn’t sit right next to her husband at a vow renewal and hold his hand? What the hell kind of marriage is this? A moment of romance and love and you sit with your “team?” WTF.

    Bobby is at the bar getting wasted or on the phone making his next date with his side piece… or both. Bobby isn’t a bad guy, a little clueless but not bad. I hope he has some really nice woman on the side who actually appreciates him as a man and not just a wallet.

    • katiecoo says:

      Bobby was exactly where Jill told him to be, wherever that was. So she wouldn’t be distracted by something like, sharing the limelight with her own husband, during a love type ceremony, while desperately looking for something to snark about.

    • Olivia says:

      You don’t hear anything from her father Sol either. Probably, like mother, like daughter, both Bobby and Sol have been emasculated over the years, shouted down, talked over, interrupted, just to those two harpies could get their own thoughts out.

      The apple does not fall far from the tree and I have a feeling that Jill is more her mother’s daughter than Lisa.

      And I bet that from Bobby’s perspective, after 8 or 9 years with Jill, he has learned it is better to shut up than argue with that braying donkey.

  113. Olivia says:

    A fitting ending to the Reunion Show would be for Jill to dissolve in a puddle and a puff of smoke like the Wicked Witch in Oz. And take her two flying monkeys, “Like” and “My luv” along with her.

    Now that would be worth the price of admission.

    well after season 3 only one thing has changed… i hate jill! i’ve always loved Bethany. i’ve always liked Ramona and Alex. i’ve always been disgusted by LuAnn. and i’ve always thought kelly was a friggen loony toon! i did like jill but after this season, not so much. it was very telling when Bethany told her they couldn’t move forward unless jill made some changes and jill said “this is who i am.” well if that’s her attitude, why bother trying to make up with Bethany? and it makes me crazy that people are saying they have a problem with Bethany not accepting her apology. HELLO!!! how many times did jill not accept Bethany’s apology? and in my opinion, Bethany didn’t even have anything to apologize for! what – for not being a mind reader and realize that bobby was “supposedly”soooo sick? and now we know that he wasn’t even as sick as jill made him out to be. don’t get me wrong, i don’t take the possibility of cancer lightly but really how bad could it have been if jill was out partying the entire time? and let’s not fail to mention the lack of a scar from being cut ear to ear.

    k, i’m going to stop the rant now… i could go on forever with this group. i love some of them and i love to hate some of them. although i could honestly do without a few and WOO HOO i can now with Bethany’s new show! i’m really looking forward to it and i’m praying it’s a HUGE HIT! now THAT would be the best revenge and bethany doesn’t have to bring herself down to get it. she’s too classy for that anyway *cough writing 1 star reviews cough*

    Good to see you Boston. Missed you yesterday.

  118. katiecoo says:

    Ok in the spirit of chore avoidance, I am rewatching the finale and am going to present you some blow by blow dialogue between Jill and Bethenny which I find SO telling about Jill’s driving nail and nail in to her own coffin w/ B (NOTHING slips by Bethenny’s awareness about her which keeps getting sharper and sharper with each Narci-comment of Jill’s):

    Jill: I don’t want to be around these people. You know you say I need to filter…you’re right! I need to filter….toxic people who don’t wish me well out of my life. That includes Alex, who i did nothing to, whatever she says, I don’t know…

    Bethenny: Alex is a toxic person? Alex is a toxic person?

    Jill: You don’t know…you’ve never seen that side.

    Bethenny: You said I was a toxic person in your life.

    Jill: At the time I thought you were. …..blathering on and on

    Bethenny meanwhile sits there nibbling on her lunch while Jill continues the meltdown as B gets more and more detached.

    The most telling thing is the “filter” comment. Um Bethenny means you need to filter YOURSELF, what you say, what you do, how you ARE. Of course Jill MISinterprets this as filtering “toxic” people out of her life.
    Always someone else…always blaming…always the victim. Bethenny is well described in the NYmag article as the VOICE OF REASON.

    Yum, we need to work on taking Teresa out because this bitch has gotten a little too big for her britches.

    This bitch is crazy and needs to be taken down…

    • boston02127 says:

      Teresa is jealous of Bethenny because Bethenny is smart and pretty and she has a forehead!

      • iceNfire says:

        I really hate to comment on anyone’s appearance, I have horrible hair and there is nothing I can do about. But Teresa does have a twohead and that can be fixed.

        • oopsy says:

          I once saw a brow as low as hers. where was it, where was it? Oh yes! a cave man diorama at the museum!

          • oopsy says:

            o.k. that was mean and I feel badly about saying it. I didn’t have a problem with her until her comments about Bethenny, I like B and T took sides before knowing the whole story which pisses me off but I shouldn’t have cracked on her hair. Really sorry 😦

    • katiecoo says:

      Uhyeah, I replied but I don’t see it up. I will say I always liked Teresa until this blog and I’ve done a complete turnaround after reading this. As I wrote (if it shows up), I can’t imagine for one second Bethenny blogging about all these rumors she’d heard about Teresa being a Diva or bad mother or whatever just because she’d heard them. But I CAN imagine Danielle relishing in that behavior.

      Which places her firmly square on the level of Danielle. BAM.

      Sorry I’m boycotting this cookbook and boring show NJ now. I actually liked watching Teresa (I do like Caroline) but I’ve learned watching these shows…pay attention as they will show you exactly who they are. I see Teresa now. Buhbye

    • PFinFL says:

      I wondered if anyone posted this. I wonder how much Jill promised Teresa for this? And why are her and Jill posting in other places other than bravo?

    • desertgal66 says:

      Teresa says:

      “Bethenny also claimed she wouldn’t play the pregnancy card, but that’s all she’s done in the press all season. I know, I know, you all love Bethenny. And that’s fine. You can love her. You don’t know her. As I make the rounds for my book Skinny Italian — third week in a row on The New York Times Bestseller List! (insert Gia scream here) — I’m meeting all the same reporters, producers and even make-up artists that Bethenny regularly interacts with. And they all have the same thing to say: “She used to be a fun, regular girl, but after she got successful, she became a total bitch.” I know she acts sweet to her fans on Twitter, but as an insider, I’m here to tell you, it’s an act. She is not sweet. She is calculating and cold. “

      As an insider? She, by her own admission, is getting all her information second hand, through “unnamed sources” – which pretty much translates to “I’m making all this shit up to make Bethenny look bad.”

      Just name one of those sources, Teresa. You know, so they can be asked to verify their comments. Bet you can’t.

      How is Teresa an “insider” about Bethenny? Has she spent any significant time at all with Bethenny, one on one? No.

      I’m also suspicious about any article that leads off with “Teresa Giudice knows how to keep it classy.” Really? When does Teresa keep it classy? When she’s talking about her “chuckie” and how many times Joe jumps her a day?

      Please, Teresa. Go tweeze the unibrow and STFU.

      • cc in Miami says:

        Oh boy. Teresa is asking for war. What the hell is wrong with her? Bethenny hasn’t been rude to her.

      • LynnNChicago says:

        That is the last straw with this Teresa bitch! I kept giving her the benefit of the doubt, I’m done. Time for a new blog name? I Hate Teresa Giudice!!!

        • CarrieCinKY says:

          I’m with you, Lynn! I totally changed my mind about Teresa after this article. She really let fans down with that one.

        • oopsy says:

          perfect! I kinda liked her at first but now, not so much. Is someone writing her blogs for her? There are some witty comments that don’t sound like her.

        • TNBelle2 says:

          OOOOWEEE Go for it PLEASEEEE. I too liked Teresa until reading that article. and she does not get her facts straight. GO GO GO GO GO GO I am team Beth. to the chore. She is my sister and BFF in my head. She is actually like my blood sister and I love her.

    • Coco_Butterfly says:

      I agree this piece of trash needs to put out on the curb. I’m fighting back by turning that show off and telling others it’s a boring show.

    • ridicurhony says:

      so completely fitting that after all the press, all the gossip, all the yapping about and between these housewives, Teresa forms her opinions about Beth by listening to hearsay/gossip. Does SHE know Bethenny? Isn’t she in JILL’s pocket? god. I’m going to have to limit myself to 2 hours a day or something here, don’t want to get crazy again. lol.

  122. emt2 says:

    This is what someone said in response to Teresa’s nonsense about Bethenny being rude to makeup artists, etc.:

    Sara Jaye Weiss June 4th, 2010

    I beg to differ on Teresa’s take on Bethenny. I am a photographer who has been assigned to shoot Bethenny on several occasions over the years. Bethenny is nice, normal, and accommodating to everyone on set and is a team player. That has not changed. I’ve photographed quite a few divas and not-very-nice celebs who make the day horrible for the entire crew. Bethenny has always been kind and respectful to all. I’ve witnessed Bethenny do some very kind things for people that provide no ‘upside’ for herself. I just feel the need to point out that I, too, as an actual ‘insider’ know a very different Bethenny than the one that Teresa describes.

    Teresa needs to go and get her hairline lifted and stop talking about things she knows nothing about.

    • Rusty says:

      Thank you for speaking up emt2.

      • emt2 says:

        No problem.

        I think that Teresa was likable first season but now she has become crude, vicious and desperately jealous. And you know that she didn’t write the People blog or her book… She is not witty or quick or well-spoken, by any stretch.

        She is riding B’s coattails really hard. I wouldn’t be surprised if her “chuckie” was chafed. lol

      • anniieee says:

        Have I read that twice katiecoo? I am confused, but then again it is Friday and I was up late last night and threw my back out this morning. Can you tell me what WORD?

      • anniieee says:

        Katiecoo, have I read that twice? I know its Friday, I am tired and threw my back out this morning. I am a little spacey, but what WORD?

        • anniieee says:

          told you I was spacey. didn’t think it went thru so I typed what Ithought I said over. Oh gawd..time to go to happy hour.

    • PFinFL says:

      Teresa is trying to knock out her competition to sell her “skinny” cookbook. She has to pay for her brand new house. You know…the one that hasn’t been used!

    • katiecoo says:

      I copied and pasted that post photographer’s again and will continue to do so as people read along there to give them a reality check.

      Hey as I rewatch the finale, anyone comment on the glimpse of Ramona’s cake? I’m freezing the tivo on it right now and it’s very unique. Gold and blue…I wish I could see a better view of it.

      • morning says:

        I noticed that cake! Sure hope whomever made it didn’t donate it because we never saw it again.

    • jb8 says:

      hee hee hee, i like that wisecrack. So many people are jealous of Bethenny and her success.

  123. RileyKitty says:

    We have all had toxic people in our lives & it is really, really sad when the most toxic person in your life is yourself. That is Jill in a nutshell. The person solely responsible for making Jill unhappy is her. You can play the blame game all you want, Ramona did this, Bethenny did that, Alex did everything wrong to me, but the common denomenator is Jill.

  124. desertgal66 says:

    Jill says: “but YOU do the same thing!”

    Well, damn, Jill, if WE all jumped off the Empire State Building to see if we could fly, would you do that, too?

    Seriously, grow the eff up already.

    And, no, we don’t all gossip in the way that you do. There’s a significant difference in the fact that the cameras are not following us. YOU know, when you make these hurtful, nasty remarks on camera, that the other housewife is going to eventually hear them, and you go out of your way to be as hurtful as you can just for that reason. That’s pretty despicable.

    And, Jill, stop saying that Kelly is normal in real life, and it was just “Scary Island” and the pressures of filming 24/7 that caused her breakdown. We read her Tweets, her Facebook posts, watch her stupid videos and see her inane pictures. She’s nuts ALL the time. You just keep right on enabling her, though, and next time she assaults someone, you can giggle about it in one of your talking head interviews.

    • RileyKitty says:


    • PFinFL says:

      Jill and her comments about Kelly on “scary” island….Jill wasn’t there. I think Ramona is right that Jill is ALWAYS commenting on something even if she wasn’t there. She doesn’t get that people don’t want to hear from her if she wasn’t present for it!

      When she was at the restaurant with Bethenny and she said she didn’t want to dredge up the past but that she was sorry BUT “I felt ambushed”….if I have to hear that one more time. Jill is nothing if not full of excuses!

      • oopsy says:

        ‘Ambushed’? To have a friend love you so much to humble herself in front of the whole world with tears in her eyes, “I don’t want to win and you to lose, I don’t want to be right” I would have been hugging her like crazy! Bethenny was literally begging for 5 minutes to say how much she cared. How could she have humbled herself anymore? I felt so badly for her because you could see her heartbreak was real. I would NEVER want a friend to have to feel that way! It would have softened my heart to have an ENEMY say that, let alone someone I love. Jill wanted to keep the drama going and there was nothing Bethenny could have said to change her mind. Did you hear her remark to Luann? “I was here doing charity!” Good to know you can’t make peace with a friend if you’re doing charity! I HATE JILL ZARIN!!

    • A former Jill fan says:

    RileyKitty – I’m following you but can’t send you a DM. Look under your followers and you see me wearing glasses my name is not ice on twitter. I’ve got so many phantom names floating around I’m gonna have to start keeping a memo (I refuse to keep notes!)

  126. lillybee says:

    Theresa is a nasty piece of work.

    • Kokuanani says:

      This was the BEST part of the interview:

      Q. What was more painful, labor or your trip to St. John’s with Kelly?

      A. Bethenny: That is the best question of the year! By far, St. John’s and I am not just saying that for effect. By the way, the C section was less painful than being away with Kelly. It was horrendous.

    • katiecoo says:

      hahaha! Love the opening photo of Luann and this gem:

      Was the season as a whole about Jill Zarin’s fall and eventual redemption, LuAnn’s transformation from sad divorcee to a pop star, Bethenny’s journey from young business lady to mature mother, Alex finally growing a pair, Ramona unquenchable thirst for pinot grigio? All of these? None of these? What does it all mean?
      This season was about Jill falling down. I don’t know that I can put it any more succinctly. Jill skated out there in her outfit, wanting everyone to watch, demanding everyone watch, and then she fell down. And then she didn’t even continue to skate. She just limped off the ice and went to go sulk. I think that’s a pretty accurate sum-up of the whole season. Jill fell down. And we all came tumbling after.

    • anniieee says:

      great one, Digger… this is my favorite from the article. Thanks for posting it..

    Not sure if you guys saw this people magazine piece.
    OMG!! I hate TERESA what a FREAKING BITCH!!
    Can we start an I hate Teresa blog?
    She is getting on my last nerve. She has no original thought she stole Bethenny’s concept for her book. Season is over and now she is bashing Bethenny again. Even if that were true about Bethenny why would she need to inform us what kind of person does that? She really has it in for Bethenny. I feel like SCREAMING!!!
    Sorry but I’m so mad.

    • emt2 says:

      Yes! I agree.

      She is riding B’s coattails really hard. I wouldn’t be surprised if her “chuckie” was chafed. lol

  129. Free Ginger (formerly known as wolverinedg) says:

    Great show last night. Looks like Bethenny learned one of life’s hard lessons: When things go wrong in your life & you need help & support from friends, the ones you expect to be there won’t (Jill) & those you’d never expect to be there will (Alex/Simon/Ramona). Guess which ones are your true friends?

    Best part of the evening? Being followed by GingerZarin on Twitter!! FREE GINGER!

    fyi – RHODC 16th @9pm – reunion part 2 17th 9pm

  131. The Digger says:

    A screen grab of Kelly flipping out on Twitter last nite:

    Best comment:
    I think Bravo wisely stepped back from Kelly after that trip. What I heard was that all of the women called the producers the night of the dinner party because they were afraid for and of Kelly. Nobody could sleep that night after the dinner party and the scenes were cut drastically because her behavior was that of someone having a massive breakdown with paranoia – Ramona, Alex, Sonia and Bethany called the producers and said they would leave if Kelly didn’t and the producers got a car and took her to the airport in the middle of the night and one of them had to fly with her back to NYC. Supposedly the breakdown she had was so bad they couldn’t use a lot of it, insane is the word they all use to describe Kelly. She went nuts for real.

    The ladies even called Jill because she was on her way down and Jill didn’t really care and was unconcerned. Great friend to have in a crisis. I don’t think Kelly really gets how badly she came across, even in the very edited part the viewers were shown.

    • katiecoo says:

      I would love to see Andy confront Jill on THAT. Her callousness about Kelly’s breakdown.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      Thank you for posting that link, that is a perfect screen shot of Kelly’s rants! I was reading them as she was tweeting but it never occurred to me that she would go back and delete them all so I didn’t grab them quickly enough. Luckily enough people re-tweeted them that I was able to save the craziest ones!
      Maybe, just maybe? This will teach her not to Tweet when she is not in her right mind? Oh wait, she would have to get off of Twitter altogether. She is addicted to Twitter.
      Thanks again!

  132. katiecoo says:

    I have to say I found the minister’s comment “since we all know Mario has always been fond of butt….” NOT funny or appropriate or respectful to Ramona.

    • anniieee says:

      I agree, but I think he was just a friend of theirs, since it was just a “renewal.” I think he said that. Not sure tho.

  133. Bobbi says:

    Always love your blogs, Lynn! You have definitely added to the enjoyment of this season. Glad you’ll be blogging Bethenny’s show!

  134. RileyKitty says:

    I would very much like Bravo to put out a special edition DVD with uncut USVI footage. I want every piece of footage they got with commentary from Bethenny, Ramona, Alex & Sonja & producers &/or various staff. I don’t want Jill & Luann they weren’t there. I don’t need Kelly’s incoherent spin. I would pay good money for this & lock myself in the house, turning the phone ringers off, for a weekend devouring it.

  135. The Digger says:

    Ramona posted the entire transcript of the vows Mario said at their ceremony:


    Probably the biggest decision one will ever make is the person to spend the rest of your life with. Sometimes it takes quite a while before you know if you’ve made the right choice. I was fortunate to have known very early that I had made the right decision. My mom had suffered a stroke and she would need care for the rest of her life. Since Dad had already passed away I asked you if it was alright if my mom could live with us in our home in Southampton. Not only did you take her in but you embraced her with love and kindness like she was your own mother. That is when I knew I had made the right decision. I had absolutely chosen the women I would spend the rest of my life with. After 17 years of marriage you have been at my side through everything that life has thrown at us, both good and bad. You have been a steady rock in times of trouble had a ray of sunshine when I could not see the light. You have applauded my achievements and comforted me in my setbacks. You have given me the most wonderful daughter a father could ever have. For all of this I am blessed and so I reaffirm my vows that I said so long ago. Ramona, I will love and honor you through good times and bad for better or worse in sickness and in health until death do us part. May God continue to bless our marriage.

    OK. I’m thoroughly gutted. Going off to find some tissues.

  136. I Can't Stand The Toxicity says:

    Teresa is garbage! Isn’t she just repeating some of the things that Jill was saying behind the scenes about Bethenny? The comment about Bethenny being “cold & calculating”, that is similiar to what Kelly said to Bethenny on “Scary Island”. Jill is planting all of these seeds and her blind followers are just repeating what she tells them.

    • RileyKitty says:

      Does Teresa even know Bethenny personally? I understand these people get together for Bravo crap but that doesn’t qualify as knowing someone. Alex is right they really are in high school or more like junior high, where you have to hate the same girl your bff hates because she said the boy you like is cute.

      These people could stand to grow a few opinions of their own instead of recycling the hatred Jill is spewing. IDIOTS!!

    • Kats says:

      Teresa the NJ PIG is a total famewhore and while I never attack or drag kids into this kind of stuff, I’m going to make the exception here and say what’s been on my mind (Just like Teresa the NJ Pig does). Teresa’s daughters are not remotely attractive or cute and they are not talented. Frankly they bore me and they have proven to be obnoxious, rude little spoiled meatballs.

      Check out an evolutionary chart (Google it) there you will find Teresa’s family. Tell me the images don’t look like the Guidice family (PLEASE!) Picture the images decked out in Juicy Couture (Do you see it now?) Hell her Neanderthal Husband is still dragging his knuckles on the ground.

  137. Char12 says:

    I’m wondering if the troll that posted earlier has been lurking for weeks and seething the whole time but thinking that when we saw the finale that somehow we would all change our minds about Jill. That maybe when we saw her try to make up with Bethanny that would somehow erase every bad thing she did and said from our memory. When that didn’t happen they couldn’t hold back any longer and had to spout off. Since some of you are saying that Jill is answering comments and replying in emails I would hazard a guess that the troll was/is actually Jill.

    I know it’s eating Jill up inside and out that B has her own show and that she won’t be on it. As far as I’m concerned that’s the only reason she wanted to make up with B in the first place, she just wanted to be on her show too.

    I agree with what everyone’s said about the other housewives and can’t think of another thing to add. Kelly is unbelievable, Luman fuels the fire in her snaky way. I love Sonja! that’s one classy lady there. I’m thinking Jen can be a little snaky too. Ramona, Alex and Bethanny stayed true to themselves and never pretended to be something they aren’t, that’s what I love about them.

    Lynn, thank you so much for giving us a forum to vent our frustrations and aggrevations. I’m looking forward to big Brother and will join with you when that starts. Have a wonderful time with Alex and Simon, can’t wait to hear all about it.

  138. lillybee says:

    Another Jill lie when she was telling LuLu about Kelly’s phone calls from the VI, Jill said that Kelly was hiding in her room. We know that this wasn’t true. I think that Jill was deliberating feeding Kelly’s mental illness.

    • RileyKitty says:

      I may just vomit in my mouth for this but for all we know Kelly told Jill she was hiding in her room. We know Kelly doesn’t how to tell the truth. (I almost feel dirty slightly defending Jill Yuck!!!)

  139. Olivia says:

    Just read my People Mag for this week and the tv section has given “Bethenny Getting Married” 3 out of 4 stars. This will send Jill right over the edge for sure!

    As for that lowlife Theresa, her Neanderthal husband, and that brood who are not adorable, would love to hear from one of those store clerks or store managers she has visited with those unleashed kids and see what they have to say as they run riot through the stores and unpend the merchandise.

    But if memory serves, Jill is in on very close terms with the awful group and Caroline especially. She thanks Caroline for dropping something or other off at her condo via her Twitter account.

    Water seeks its own level and the NJ group now teamed up with Jill have come full circle.

  140. MoV says:

    Good summary for the finale.

    I kept thinking the entire time that no matter what was said between B and Jzzzzz, we already know the outcome.

    No matter WHAT Jzzz said at lunch in December about being sincere, she wasn’t. She’s spent the whole spring jacking Bethenny up, leaking information about her to the blogs and gossip sites, smearing her reputation in underhanded ways, etc.

    Not only doesn’t Jzzz take responsibility, she continues to play the victim card every time someone rightly criticizes her for her shenanigans.

    Should Lynn decide to take a summer break, I do have a free yuku forum available if anyone is interested in pursuing more convo about this season’s episodes, or BGM, etc. All welcome! it’s just a spinoff from an old RHO board I started a long time ago that I never used and closed up. (I just spent a little time cleaning it up to be presentable.) http://realtalktv.yuku.com/directory

        NeNe is on the best list. so is Sherree or however you spell it. people have called the writer out on that though. i think he finds them harmless and ridiculous. i think they’re awful. kandi is the only ATL one i can stand.

        • desertgal66 says:

          Kandi is a class act, all the way. Truly talented and genuinely good hearted, she’s also got a dash of sass and backbone. I’m surprised she wasn’t on the Best Housewives list.

  146. Char12 says:

    I just thought of another thing that annoys me about LuLu. Remember when Mario called her countless and Bethanny called her a snake? Remember how she hounded and hounded Ramona about it and the fact that Mario hasn’t apologized yet and how she jumped Bethanny that night and said to her that she hasn’t apologized yet for calling her a snake. She badgers people for an apology all the time. What good is an apology if you have to beat it out of someone? It’s not a heartfelt apology if the person didn’t offer it without you asking for it in my opinion and I’ve never heard her ever apologize to anything she’s said. Bethanny said she only apologized to shut her up and Luman isn’t smart enough to figure that out.

    • RileyKitty says:

      you are exactly right. A true apology comes from the heart. Whenever someone asks me for one. I do the “I am sorry you feel I wronged you” which isn’t an apology at all. Luann doesn’t just let shit go. If Countless & Snake are the worst thing people are calling you be thankful. I just know she is going to beat the drag queen comment Bethenny made to death at the reunion. Speaking of reunions, why didn’t Luann address Bethenny’s comment about her being cheap at last years reunion??? Something tells me she may have let it go, but Jill reminded her of it before this season taped. Jill to Luann: “Bethenny & I aren’t speaking & you shouldn’t be talking to her either, after all she says she always treats you when you go out. She told everyone you are cheap.”

  147. iceNfire says:

    From Jill’s Facebook:

    I opened my jillzarin.com up for comments so I can directly comment back to some of you! I think we are all in a better place now and it is a time for healing. I wish only good things for ALL my cast mates. I didn’t speak with Alex since the last time I saw her was on the island and didn’t want to fight. I wish them well on their book tour too as we should support each other and not fight anymore. Peace and Love.

    All the while she is slamming Alex in the press…ack I hate this woman!

      LuAnn seems to be attempting to ride the fence a bit now. It seems as if she would like to switch teams. Too late. She has shown her real personality and there is nothing elegant about it.

      Jill is hopeless and losing her grip on even being an F-lister, if there is such a thing. She is a blantant liar. Many seem to like her husband but he has always seems oily & slimey too- IMO

      Kelly is just one hot mess. Poor kids. Can you imagine being raised by someone so very paranoid and clueless? A 5150 could very well be in her future.

      Alex and Bethenny are both people who seem like the type that I would enjoy sitting down to lunch with. They don’t seem to be cruel, unbalanced or fake.

      Kelly-mentally unhinged
      Sonya-seems great but so did Jill at first, so the jury is still out
      That new chick-who cares

      By the way, I love this site!

    • felony stupid says:

      Which we all know is a lie since she kissed her hello at Ramona’s renewal and then later refused to talk to her. Such a lying sack of shit.

      btw I LOVE your blog!!!!

  149. Bravo fan says:

    Hi everyone, I was just trying to go through the comments real quick since this is the first time I was able to get on. Does everyone know that on Jillzarin.com she has opened her comments and is answering many of them. Many are Jill supporters but there is a good share of haters as well. Also on the Bravo site there is a clip from the reunion show with Alex confronting Jill and even Andy is agreeing with Alex. Sorry if someone already posted all this info. Thanks Lynn for letting us share.

    • kmuellfa says:

      I posted this, but she wouldn’t allow it. I was surprised b/c there were others critical of her. I guess the Amazongate comment was what did it.

      “Well, Jill, it seems as though you still don’t “get it”. Some of the statements you have made recently make that clear. I will say I was a fan of yours until this year.
      You haven’t acknowledged all the things that have been said and transpired this year. Yes, for you it happened months ago, but for your viewers we are seeing it for the first time. The viewers are not stupid, for example, the comment you made you made to your FRIEND, Luann, about her evite “Well, I can see that you didn’t put a lot of thought into it, but that’s okay” is representative of the ugliness you have displayed this season. I mean come on, why would you even say something like that?

      As for Alex, she rightly or wrongly feels that you criticized her children. You, as a mother, should understand how hurtful that could be. How would you feel if someone attacked Ally, or criticized your parenting skills? Maybe she should have said something earlier, not allowed it to build up and unleash on you, but some people are not good with confrontation. I think the problem, seeing it from the outside, is that she felt as if you did not really hear her, and take her seriously.

      I think Ramona was right, you need to start being less self-centered and see things from other people’s POV. I won’t even comment on B, there’s no point.

      Oh yeah, when are you going to address Amazongate? Again, the viewers are not stupid.

      Look, I don’t know if it’s possible for you to redeem yourself, it would require some real serious introspection, and honestly, I don’t know if you are capable of it.”

  150. Amber...Real Wife says:

    Thank you Lynn.

    Your blog kept me busy for weeks. It allowed me to express myself. Before coming to you site, I tried commenting over at BRAVO, on the blogs, to no avail. I guess I was blackballed. The message boards weren’t any better. On your site, I was able to agree and disagree with fellow RHONY fans, without fear of repercussion. Everyone, even trolls, where able to freely state their opinions. Debating was encouraged, with tag teaming by housewives who agreed with that point of view. We all knew the real purpose was to get our feelings out and to keep on hating…JILL ZARIN!

    Thanks for the memories! Hope to keep coming back for the reunion and Bethenny’s show too.

  151. otaypanky says:

    Amazon has numerous threads of discussion re: jill zarin.
    So many people just cannot stand this person.
    Gotta love it.

    • iceNfire says:

      I think she’s finally ready to crack. She has never been so responsive to viewers, too bad she still “doesn’t get it” – too little too late – WE HATE YOU JILL

      • otaypanky says:

        Hope you’re right.
        A small part of me feels badly saying that however, this is a person who went after people’s careers and reputations.

        I have never blogged about another housewife. There is just something so special about jill.

  152. RileyKitty says:

    I think it is effing hilarious that Jill thought she had redeemed herself (her own words on WWHL). She said that if we just stayed tune she would redeem herself by the end of the season. Didn’t happen! What kills me is Bethenny was ready to have a sit down & Jill refused. She was AMBUSHED LOL. In the lunch with Bethenny she says she regretted that she didn’t listen then. Then she turns around & refuses to listen to Alex. Normal people learn from mistakes. maybe Jill’s weave is threaded in just a tad too tight???

  153. Bravo fan says:

    Jill said on twitter to go to jillzarin.com so that she could answer questions directly. I don’t know to much about twitter but can’t u respond to someone there and even do a direct message? I am wondering why she is doing this. In order to leave a comment on her website u have to give your email. Do u think she is doing this to get peoples emails who are bashing her or I am I totally off base? It just seems odd that all of a sudden she is encouraging comments on that site.

  154. lillybee says:

    And why isn’t she blogging on the Bravo site?

    • iceNfire says:

      I think Bravo fan is on to something. As Admin of her site she can check IPs to see who is who. But using different names and IPs screws that little plan of hers.

  155. DarkSonnet says:

    I apologize if this has already been posted. Posted by Bethenny.

    “Hi everyone!

    I’m back from the other side, and I brought a new baby girl with me. Bryn Casey Hoppy is a beautiful, tiny, healthy girl weighing 4 pounds 12 ounces at birth. My water broke 5 weeks early, and we didn’t have a damn thing planned — no baby’s room, no bassinet, no hospital bag, NADA! But who cared? I was having a baby.

    After 26 hours of labor (and about 26 popsicles), we decided to have a C-section, and Bryn was born. I was so glad I listened to Jason about letting the baby’s sex be a surprise. There was nothing like that moment when we found out. I felt like we had just won Bingo. I would have been happy with a boy or a girl, but I really wanted a little girl. I want to give her everything I didn’t have and make her a better version of myself. At the moment, she looks like Jason but has my personality. We’ll see if that sticks.

    Bryn was born premature, so she was in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive-Care Unit) for the first 4 days. Jason was amazing. He stayed with me in the hospital for 6 days straight. That is true love.

    We had no experience with babies, so it was terrifying when she came to stay with us in the hospital room on Day 5. Bringing her home was equally daunting. Now, I finally have a groove. I am 3 weeks in, and I’m even doing some light exercise (in accordance to doctor’s instructions) and I’m back to work at a slow speed.

    I chose to breast feed for bonding and health reasons. I must admit that it is one of the most difficult things I have ever taken on, but I have learned that the whole key is to come from a place of yes and not give up. Most people give up, but it WILL happen. Three weeks is the turning point.

    Another challenge was introducing Cookie to Bryn. As I suspected, Cookie is very protective of Bryn. She pretty much leaves her alone, but she is definitely as protective of Bryn as she is of me. It was terrifying, but we got through that obstacle.

    As for my figure, it’s bouncing back quickly. I was healthy before — I practice what I preach in my books and DVD — and it has paid off. I go into greater detail on this subject in the article in this week’s Us Weekly. ”


  156. Had Enough! says:

    Jill’s Trained Sasquatch is tweeting from Vegas, where the ho’bag is hanging with some guy named Gilles Marini. Are we counting all these very short relationships she is having? There was the guy she slugged (Nick Stefanov), Sam Talbott, Max-Max…I know I am missing someone because last time I counted, I already had five so Marini makes six. He is just a tad younger, like all the rest. She’s 42 and he’s 34. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Just saying. Oh, and like Sam Talbott, it seems that he is married. Now that is so not cool.

    • Kats says:

      I wonder how much she is paying him to be photographed with her?

    • katiecoo says:

      Wait, Ms. Seeking True Love is galavanting in Las Vegas with a married man?

      • shantygal says:

        Isn’t he the hottie that was on Dancing with the Stars last year? He was the hunk that lived next door to Samantha in the first SATC movie. And YES he is married.

  157. Kats says:

    I think the jealous Famewhores (Jill, Kelly and Teresa) are coming out of the wood-work because of B’s new show. And it’s going to kill them to see the show get great reviews and watch B (yet again) be successful and get attention. It’s going to be interesting to see how they attempt to handle themselves, I bet medical attention and weekly sedation will be required.

    • katiecoo says:

      What will be interesting is to see how many of those “detractors” (aka ugly jealous bitches) decide to blog about Bethenny’s show. I say to them BRING IT.

  158. katiecoo says:

    Good Lord, I’m winding my way through the marathon and the scene where Bethenny is talking on the speaker phone w/ Luann. She says “we’re done” over and over and over again. She’s smug, smiling, sneering, mouthing crap to Luann who is also sitting there sneering while Bethenny is standing there thinking she’s having some sort of private conversation with her. THIS SCENE right here is where the tide irreversibly turned against Zarin. How can she look at that scene and ever…EVER think that anyone who saw it will believe she has any sincerity whatsoever about re-bonding with Bethenny. That scene was nothing short of full on abuse.

    And once B knew that, she should have done exactly what she did….run the other way, permanently. Watching that scene makes me so disgusted I can hardly type. Evil f’ing bitch.

    • katiecoo says:

      “I don’t want to be in the same room with her. She doesn’t deserve it.”

      (JZ regarding Bethenny)

      Well guess you got your wish….and that room was the one where BETHENNY GOT MARRIED, not to mention the nursery where her newborn baby is/was born.

  159. Had Enough! says:

    10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1….Here comes a string of tweets about Global Green which is apparently why Jill’s Trained Sasquatch flew to Vegas. She’s so charitable and she’s so green. Spare me. It is just another way to get her ugly mug and that freakazoid nose on camera.

    • desertgal66 says:


      Truly charitable people aren’t in it for the publicity…and they also aren’t going around trying to impress people with how “charitable” they are by yapping about it repeatedly. They’re just rolling up their sleeves and getting to work. No publicity, no laurels, no awards…just an honest desire to help and fulfillment when they do.

      Kind of the same way “real” people with real integrity and ethics don’t need to tell people constantly how “real” they are, and how much “integrity” and “ethics” they have.

      Kellamity is such a fraud.

      • felony stupid says:

        Reminds me when last season Kelly was all “I don’t put my name on anything”. And B called her out to say hellz yes she does…and that she will go to the opening of a closet. GAAHHHH!

  160. otaypanky says:

    great part of someone’s comment on prettyontheoutside.
    My other bit I liked was the appearance of Jill’s news sub-sidekick Jen Gilbert, the event coordinator, who has inserted herself up Zarin’s ass like a sycophantic boil.

    Her blissful, subservient look while Jill was skating was a model for every future Rosencrantz and/or Guildenstern.

  161. desertgal66 says:

    I have no desire to comment on a site controlled by Jill Zarin. She’s offering nothing but excuses, obfuscations, and backpedaling. She ducks responsibility at every turn, and blames everyone but herself.

    She’s a mother who made her daughter take the blame for her own poor judgment in scooping the birth of Bethenny’s baby. (We know who got that information from TwatMaxine, and it wasn’t Ally.)
    She’s a ‘friend’ who refuses to acknowledge that Kelly is in dire need of psychiatric intervention, and also refuses to actually try and help her.
    She’s the kind of lowlife who, caught red handed, refuses to apologize for her duplicity on Amazon and her subsequent attack on A. Chandler.

    Too little, too late, Jill. Why should anyone listen to you?

    Cut her loose, Bravo. Leave her to go back underneath the rock she crawled out from.

        Oh, go read Clan of the Cave Bear and shut up, Teresa.

        She’s clearly parroting that recent Page Six blurb. Does anyone here really think that Teresa Guidice could come up with an argument involving the phrase “abnormal pressure” all on her own? Before now, her definition of “abnormal pressure” was probably Jughead Joe catching her off guard.

        Bethenny Frankel isn’t putting abnormal pressure on regular women anywhere. Once again, because regular women, who actually work for a living, can think for themselves.

        Bethenny looks fantastic. Teresa is a moron.

    • desertgal66 says:

      That’s funny. I’m a real, hardworking woman…and I don’t recall where Bethenny has ever misled me. Oh, gee, maybe because, contrary to what you might think, TERESA, most of us real women, who actually work for a living, have enough brains to think for ourselves.

      Personally, I’d rather watch Bethenny crack wise than Teresa yacking away about her stupid chuckie and Danielle’s vagina. At least Bethenny is funny. Teresa is just gross.

  173. Amber...Real Wife says:

    Re: Teresa on People Mag ragging Bethenny

    She is crazy like a stupid fox! She started guest blogging on Bravo hating on Bethenny. She quickly changed her tune, when she realized the huge fan support that Bethenny had. Teresa saw she’d risk losing book sales if she continued those rants as Jill had. She quietly distanced herself from Jill and then just stopped blogging period. Now that the NY season is over, and her book is on the NYTimes best seller, she feel free to be as venemous as she likes. Wrong move. Any Bethenny fans she recruited with her about face, have probably waited to purchase her book. Much like her simian husband, she prematurely ejaculated.
    Also, anyone else notice she is awlways rapping to Mario. She’s called him handsome in person, sexy sounding when speaking in Italian, and now gorgeous at the wedding…Ramona needs to be wary. Teresa seems to love the attention. You don’t compliment a man and ignore his wife. Not cool, and actually very disrespectful. But, since it never happens to her andJizzy Joe, she doesn’t know any better.

  174. The Digger says:

    I’m flattered she came back to see if her comment was posted, to read thru the whole blog again and to insult us. Since I read one and only one chapter in Jill Zarin’s fabulous BOOK and it talked about gifting I want to give tryna a gift – !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. I am sure you are out of these so enjoy!

  175. Bravo fan says:

    Hey you guys have to go check out Jillzarin.com comments – click on the finale story and look at the comments, she is getting really defensive and angry in answering her commentors.

    • The Digger says:

      She is cracking. She is in such defense mode it is fun to watch. I love when people attack her like she attacks people. Her stupidity is good entertainment. The messages she is responding to aren’t even very harsh. We would swallow her whole here.

  176. iceNfire says:

    Okay I’ll be ready to go after Teresa Tuesday morning. I’m NOT saying I will ease up on Jill but Jill has become such an easy target with no allies I’ll be able to target both. Lynn are you in on this? Oh hell I really don’t want to watch NJ though, does sleeping through it count?

    • RileyKitty says:

      I am down with hating Teresa as long as it means no sympathy for Danielle in the process. I think Kelly is Crazy but I think Danielle is psychotic.

  177. Quincy IL says:

    I think a baby nurse for a premie is a great idea. I went to take care of my grandchild when my daughter had a c section. It’s hard to move right after the delivery.
    Usually, grandparents or sisters help with a new baby. Bethenny doesn’t have family to help her.

    Teresa is jealous about the baby weight because she got really heavy at the end of her pregnancy and her rear needs time to go back to normal. Jacqueline got large too.

    Don’t be jealous, Teresa. You will lose that weight someday.

    • otaypanky says:

      She absolutely needs a baby nurse.

      T is a moron.

    • desertgal66 says:

      I’ve had two C-sections, and they’re hard to recover from, especially when you have to care for a newborn at the same time. It isn’t an outpatient procedure – it’s major surgery. I agree – a nurse, especially with a preemie, is a great idea. Why not, if you can afford it? And why blast someone for doing it? That’s just senseless.

      • KLAS says:

        I’ve had six c-sections – two girls anf 4 boys. My first, a girl, was a premie and she weighted 4 pounds 12 ounces. The pain with that first one was intense because I’d never experienced anything like it. My mother came and stayed with me for a week with each baby. And if we had had the money then, I would have done exactly what Bethenney has – hired someone to help.

        • desertgal66 says:


          And, after reading Bethenny’s post where she mentioned that she went through 26 hours of labor before they decided to do the C-section-reading between the lines, that usually means that they did the C-section because the delivery failed to progress to the point where she could deliver naturally.

          For any parent, especially when the baby is arriving prematurely, that’s a very scary experience. There are lives in the balance throughout it-the baby and the mother.

          Bethenny, Jason, and Bryn deserve compassion and kadooze for getting through that safely and well. They certainly don’t merit a bunch of nasty comments from two idiots-Jill and Teresa-who should, as mothers themselves, know better. That’s is just so why I Hate Jill Zarin.

    • Sue says:

      And let’s not forget that Bethanny is her own boss. Her books, dvd’s, Skinny Margarita’s, etc. earn her her income because she has to go out and sell herself. No one wants to hear from her assistants. If she can afford a nurse why not??? If memory serves Teresa doesn’t work yet she has a book called “Skinny” Italian.

      Gah! I hate NJ more and more.

      • RileyKitty says:

        bottom line is it isn’t any of Teresa’s business if Bethenny has a nurse or not. Teresa needs to keep her ass in Jersey & worry about Juicy & her 4 kids, not Bethenny.

        • Shadowsnomore says:

          Teresa needs to STFU. Many women how have just had a baby could use some help. Most have a mom or sister who can come and help. As a mother of 5 kid, I know first hand how exhausting a newborn can be. Not to mention that new moms can feel depression, overwhelmed and stressed out. Bethenny doesn’t have a close relationship with her mother. “B” is fortunate that she is at a point in her life that she can afford to get the help she needs. Why would anyone in their right mind begrudge her that? It’s a sad fact that infants that are abused usually have parents who have stated that they were stressed out and couldn’t handle the crying and constant demands of the infant. I’m not making any excuses for people who abuse their babies, but maybe some of them may not have become abusive if they had the tools to cope. I noticed that you, Teresa Bitch, had the help of your mother when you gave birth! You are just a jealous, bitchy c*nt hwho has been poisoned by the queen BITCH, Jill Zarin. I hate you now as vehemently as I HATE JILL ZARIN! You have stupidly unleashed an army of people who have seen through Jill and have called her ass out. Get ready, it’s your turn now BITCH!

  178. Bravo fan says:

    I left a comment on Jillzarin.com and she didn’t publish it, is it because I asked her about the amazon issue? So now maybe i will be getting a threatening email, should i be afraid. What a crock, she says she wants a chance to answer peoples questions but she is deleting the ones that incrimminate her.

    • Had Enough! says:

      She didn’t post mine either, and all I did was ask her about something she wrote on the blog. She said it was hard to make up with Bethenny with all the cameras and outside influences – and I don’t think, from the context, that she meant just the afternoon at Ramona’s house. I asked her if she couldn’t have called B. or met with her when there were no cameras around. After all, they aren’t filmed 24/7.

      Oh, I also said she should get off TV and spend her time working on herself instead of making herself and everyone around her miserable.

      • Sue says:

        Funny how Bethenny’s message about “get a hobby” was sent before filming even began yet that ended up on camera. Hmmmm…..what at tangled web we weave. Jill lives for the cameras.

  179. Squirrels says:

    Hey Lynn – I have a question for Silex.

      Squirrels, if I go I will certainly ask that because I want to know that myself.

  180. otaypanky says:

    The articles about B gaining her figure back quickly are definitely plants by Jill. This woman just won’t stop. B did not gain that much weight during her pregnancy. Of course her figure will return rather quickly.
    Me, I ate for eight people. It took 10 months to lose.

      Not to mention that it was B’s first pregnancy, so those muscles are more resilient then they would be after, say, five pregnancies, and she was in great shape throughout her pregnancy, which helps, too.

      I don’t understand why people are slamming her for losing the weight so quickly. It’s not that unusual, and, as long as Bethenny stuck to a healthy diet and didn’t overdo any exercise-and I’m sure she didn’t, since she isn’t stupid-then there wasn’t anything risky about it.

  181. Wendy says:

    New version of Lulu’s song for Teresa: Mob money can’t buy you class. Elegance is learned you ape!

  182. otaypanky says:

    Watching the previews on bravo, when B sits down, Andy tries to engage her. Saying something about her channeling dynasty with her dress. She seems not to want to engage with him. Something went down there.

  183. The Digger says:

    B is a small woman. She only gained a bump and a small amount of weight. She is in shape so easier to bounce back. She was bloated with water and also on bed rest because she had a freaking BLOOD CLOT. And she is 40. People need to get over all of this and let this woman just be. B up and out of bed and in a bikini so soon, I say you go girl, you earned the body you worked for. Teresa needs find herself a brain to implant in her empty moron skull. She should go fuck off in a room with Jill for a year and get off my tv and out of the press. Hate that woman and her little troll children. Ugh.

    • desertgal66 says:

      No, don’t censor yourself, Digger. You can tell us what you really think. 🙂

      Didn’t realize that B. was on bed rest due to a blood clot. Wow, that’s scary. And these women-mothers themselves-are so freaking insensitive as to continually blast her in the press during and after her pregnancy? That’s just wrong on so many levels.

      I agree..you go, Bethenny. I’d rather see a smart, classy, strong, hardworking woman like yourself as a role model for my daughters and grandchildren than these other brainless twits who marry money and babble incoherent nonsense all day long.

      • The Digger says:

        Censor? What is concept of which you speak? Besides, the word fuck is the new black. I saw that video above 🙂 I am a trend driven person and want to remain cutting edge. Oh, wait, you are talking about the troll concept? Tell me, does little Gia not look like one of those troll dolls from 1963 with the weird bulging googlie eyes and the neon green frizz hair that comes to a point? Oh, sorry, there I go again..

        Hey, I started out the day making comments seeped in love, sensitivity and wiping my tears at marriage renewal vows. By 5pm and a day of Jillshill and TeresaTrash spewing their garbage these people picking at a pregnant woman with health issues who is looking fabu really pushes my buttons.

  184. otaypanky says:

    ice n fire…Yes. It’s definitely time to do Teresa.
    She wants to shill for jill?
    Let’s give her a warm Lynnnchicgo welcome.

  185. Had Enough! says:

    Photo of Jill at her college reunion. Posing all alone. Can you imagine the buzz that is going on in that room every time she excuses herself from the table?

  186. Matilda says:

    I’m so happy I found this site! None of my comments I tried posting on BRAVO were approved and the worst thing I wrote was “disgusting specimen”, still, wasn’t posted. That’s not fare, because Jill really IS a disgusting specimen. And what about the “countless”? I don’t even know who I hate more: her or Jill Zaaaaaaarin. Arrogant condescending pretentious piece of garbage. WHo made her Jill’s spokes person? I’m so annoyed by her butting into other people’s arguments, scolding and talking down and throwing around catty remarks. She’s just so happy to add fuel to the fire! CLassless, tone-deaf hypocrite. ” Shouldn’t take sides” my behind! Urgh! Can’t stand her.

  187. emt2 says:

    Wasn’t Teresa jealous of Bethenny’s Peta ad, also?

    Teresa needs to shut up because no one is watching Real Housewives of New Jersey.

    This is what happens to undeserving people. She petetioned everyone to ask Bravo to let her blog about New York. Should have never happened. We have to turn the tide around.

    I hate Teresa with a passion.

    Her tweets:

    # Now I’m getting all worked up… but Bethenny is fake and dangerous. I don’t like her misleading real, hardworking women. 😦 41 minutes ago via web

    # I was really offended when I read Bethenny’s interview yesterday bashing everyone to pump up her show: http://tinyurl.com/2fwbk8w 42 minutes ago via web

    Why is she worried about what Bethenny says about her costars? She didn’t mention anything about what Jill and Kelly have said about Bethenny.

    Teresa is the opposite of real, hardworking women. She has a nanny and she lies and says that she cooks everyday for her family. Maybe a few years ago but certainly not this season.

    She needs to be more diplomatic.

    Honestly, none of the housewives should say anything bad about Bethenny now because the success of her show will affect the possibility of future housewife spin offs.

    • Squirrels says:

      “Honestly, none of the housewives should say anything bad about Bethenny now because the success of her show will affect the possibility of future housewife spin offs.”

      If only they were that bright….. sigh…..

      • emt2 says:

        I wouldn’t say anything about B, right now. Teresa’s fan base isn’t solid enough and everyone is kinda bored with the RHNJ, right?

        T will go down just like Jill because T is coming off as a crazy bully for her incessant bashing of Danielle (notice that B didn’t really bash Kelly or Jill on the show or in the press all season incessantly. She let them make fools of themselves.) Everyone knows that Danielle is crazy, no need to call her names every second, T.

        And now she is criticizing B for no reason other than the fact that she is jealous. I like how she also revealed that she is doing the EXACT same circuit of press that B has done. B paves the road and the others just reap the benefits.

  188. emt2 says:

    Oh, Teresa was upset about this:


    I’m sorry but I agree with EVERYTHING that B said about Teresa. Her vocabulary is horrible, she glorified flipping a table, Dina didn’t do the reality tv show to bring awareness to her charity, etc., etc.

  189. Zoe Thinks says:

    Teresa is trying to turn Bethenny into the new Danielle…not gonna work. Dina:
    I love my girl Teresa but Bethenny never attacked my charity. ??? Where did u get that from mama? I have no prob w her

    • desertgal66 says:

      Exactly. Bethenny never said that Project Ladybug wasn’t a worthy charity. She didn’t comment in that context at all.

    • A former Jill fan says:

      Hey, good for Dina for bringing up the question! Teresa had better watch it. After all, look what’s happened to Jill–try to destroy someone’s rep with false accusations and see where it gets you!

      There is no comparison between Bethenny and Danielle. Sure they both didn’t have ideal family lives when growing up, but that’s where any resemblance hits a brick wall. Bethenny has risen above her circumstances and made a name for herself while Danielle continues to play the victim card and has made an even worse name for herself.

      Different as night and day.

      • desertgal66 says:

        I have to point out that Danielle’s ‘troubled’ childhood might be fictional. She’s been caught in numerous lies, half truths, and inconsistencies. She may have also been victimized as an adult-I don’t know-but a lot of the stories she tells don’t add up there, either.

  190. lillybee says:

    Theresa may be my least favorite housewife of all.

    • Squirrels says:

      Some seem to go at it like their life depended on media time.

    • A former Jill fan says:

      I have to say that I didn’t care for Theresa after the table flipping incident. She reminds me of the changed Nene in season 2 of Atlanta.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Bought the Kindle Version and Now off to Buy Autographed One., June 4, 2010
    By Michelle D. Woods “Mrtippy”
    This review is from: Secrets of a Jewish Mother: Real Advice, Real Stories, Real Love (Hardcover)
    I loved the kindle version so much that I decided to purchase an autographed version. Contrary to some reviews, I found this book to be a wonderful read and enjoyed it immensely .

    • Squirrels says:

      Oh man… A Chandler is my heroine !!!! Never mind book reviewing, I’d hire her as a private investigator any day.

  192. Bravo fan says:

    wonder if Bawby went to reunion w/ her. I wonder how her classmates will treat her. Do you guys remember when Jill told Alex that she should ask Luanne to be in the fashion show? Well, I will never forget what Jill said next….”she (Luanne) is not a size 1 like me but she is tall and she was a model.” She loves to flaunt that size 1 thing around doesn’t she?

  193. iceNfire says:

    I’m thinking that we still have to go after Jill. This is what I do:
    1. Sign up for Jill Zarin google alert.
    2. Compose facts about Jill’s fake reviews on Amazon and Zarin fabrics site, note the name Susan Saunders and the date 1995 throw in a little personal offense (I’m greatly offend by *insert whatever* and write a paragraph or so on notepad.
    3. Copy, paste and send to ALL sites found in your google alerts. Believe me there will be truck loads. lol You will get them throughout the day.
    4. Send emails to Andy, Bravo and NBCUNI
    5. Repeat the next day and the day after that and the…………


    Let’s push hard right now before contracts are offered. ADIOS LUNATIC!

  194. otaypanky says:

    There is no way in high hell that jill is a size 1. Now that’s delusional.
    Ramona and B both are a 4-6.

    • A former Jill fan says:

      It is delusional! LOL! Why on the show last night, she looked a bit pudgy.

  195. battgyrl says:

    I haven’t watched the finale yet – between following the Joran van der Sloot story, kids and my hubby finishing school it’s been a busy few days! I did log into twitter about 2 hours ago and has Teresa been busy! I was hoping I would get blocked, but I guess I wasn’t nasty enough. LOL!!

    Teresa has a massive ego and wants to be the sexy, saucy mama on the show. Bethenny represents everything she is not, and perhaps seeing Kelly’s online tirades on Bethenny has given her the idea to do the same. Teresa is SOOO jealous that Bethenny has already lost her baby weight, which I cannot believe is such a big deal! If only I had done the same! haha

    I thought Jill was a shill, but Teresa will sell ANYTHING to make a buck. I think I hate her as much as Jill these days. Instead of worrying about Bethenny, maybe she should see what she can do about the snoozefest that is RHONJ.

    BTW, I only have two followers (one is Alex!!) so if you want to tweet with me my screen name is mariakitty. If I could change it to battgyrl I would 🙂

    • RileyKitty says:

      I am going to add you to my twitter. You can change your twitter name, I was using my given name & decided against it (mostly so I wouldn’t embarrass my 16 year old son LOL) & I changed mine easily enough to RileyKitty2 (apparently there is already a RileyKitty, who knew?)

      I tweeted teresa after she was talking about blocking Bethenny fans with vulgar mouths

      my response: RileyKitty2 @Teresa_Giudice Bethenny fans have vulgar mouths? Nothing like the crap coming from yours always talking about your sex life with Juicy Joe

      • battgyrl says:

        Thanks! I will change my name in a few minutes 🙂 I am new to twitter, so I didn’t know you could do such a thing.

    • I Can't Stand The Toxicity says:

      Teresa blocked my sister on Twitter today. She wasn’t vulgar but she told Teresa that she didn’t believe that Teresa wrote her own blogs because she can’t put two sentences together when she speaks. She also told Teresa that she was dumb as a doorknob. I guess that is what got her blocked. lol

      • battgyrl says:

        I was trying to get blocked but I wasn’t mean enough I guess. I love what you sister said to her!!

  196. Squirrels says:

    If Jill is a size 1 I’ll eat my hat. While it is true, a lens (depending on mm) can make you look wider or thinner, the same lens would show all the women in the same vein. No matter how many times Jill stands next to someone she is wider than any of the other women.

  197. lillybee says:

    There is no way that Jill can fit those 34 DD’s into a size 1,2,3 or 4.

  198. iceNfire says:

    Jill Zarin has lied and manipulated not only her cast mates but the viewers too. Faking positive reviews for her book is false advertising. She also posted fake reviews on her husbands fabric store site, dating back to 1995. Screen shots of both of these have been saved by numerous bloggers. Enough already! Get this woman off TV, out of the press and into some serious mental health care.

  199. ilovelynn says:

    hi guys, I swear it has taken me DAYS to get through all these blogs and comments! great blog on the finale, lynn. I’m about 10 minutes away from finally watching it. as usual, fell asleep last night before it started. my husband is away for the weekend, so I bought a bunch of magazines, including people, us, in touch, etc.(ok, it’s not the first time I bought these rags, if truth be told…….never mind) anyway, on the last page of OK (yes, that one too) there is jill’s ugly face with a full page spread of questions and answers: LAST TIME I SAW BETHENNY FRANKEL at the reunion taping. I wished her the best with everything.(it’s the “best of everything” you stupid twit) LAST TIME I WAS MISTAKEN FOR ANOTHER CELEBRITY(notice the “another” not “a” celebrity. in your dreams jill) a fan recently told me I look like sandra bullock. (yeah, and that was a bunch of pigs that just flew by my window..try kathy griffin!) LAST ADVICE I GAVE TO MY DAUGHTER to read the book I just wrote for her, secrets of a jewish mother.(thebookthebook) LAST TIME I FELT JEALOUS jealousy is not in my nature (I swear to god she said that!) LAST TIME I FELT ANGRYafter watching the show and feeling misunderstood(I thought she loses all the dvd’s?) LAST MEAL I’D LIKE TO EAT BEFORE I DIE chocolate chip haagen dazs ice cream, peter luger steak, every french fry and home fry in ny, levain bakery chocolate chip cookies and pastrami with corned beef and rye from carnegie deli(do you think she received money for mentioning all those places and by the way, she should have added she’ll pour water on half of everything!)

    also, one of the other mags said theresa and her “juicy” husband are 8 million $”s in debt!

    then in US (I know, I know, I have to get a life) there is a 6 page spread on bethenny, jill and kelly. one of the things mentioned is that jill is constantly asking everyone, “do you think I am the most known housewives out of all the casts?” she is disgusting! I wish I knew how to put a link to that article, but remember me, the one who didn’t know how to change my name back to “patsy’s boys”!lol.

    and to the young lady that posted about her lymphoma, I am sending lots of love, prayers and postive thoughts to you though this blog! THERE IS a light at the end of the tunnel. you will be fine, I promise. a big kiss to that fabulous husband of yours. I’m sorry, I forgot your name.

    hope to talk to you later, guys! patsy

    uh oh, finale is on now. will try to keep up with all you wonderful, beautiful, intelligent,
    witty people! I love, love, love you lynn and can’t wait to hear about your fabulous night with alex and simon

  200. Bravo fan says:

    I find it hard to believe Jill is size 1 also, maybe one manufacturer made clothes bigger than the real size and Jill is clinging to the belief that this is her real size. I know
    tv doesn’t really give u a clear picture of someone, but I think Jill looks bigger than some of the other housewives. Now Kelly Riper looks like a size 1 on tv.

    BTW to mariakitty I have only 2 followers on twitter, one being Alex as well. I was so
    happy to see her doing this for me, I will follow u.

  201. Quincy IL says:

    Why would someone be in support of Jill Zarin? Jill, herself, thinks she made mistakes this season.

    I wish someone would explain why Jill Zarin has gone after Alex. Alex gave her a message from Bethenny. The message was no more cruel than Jill’s constant comments to Bethenny and Alex. It’s hard to believe that some person out there would stand by and say that Jill was ok in doing that.

    About hairdressers and makeup people helping Teresa and giving her gossip, who are these people? They should be fired from their positions for spreading gossip while working. Bethenny had great relationships with the people at her hair salon. She gets along well with her assistant. I simply can’t believe that Teresa is correct in her assessment.

    Bravo did ask Bethenny to blog on NJ just as Teresa blogged on NY. Is Teresa a mean person because she gave her assessment when asked to blog by Bravo? Yes…I guess so because that’s what she is stating Bethenny did to the NJ girls.

    Twitter and Facebook seem like places that you can get into a boat load of trouble. I like the safety of our circle of friends at Lynn’s site. You know that Lynn is watching over the threads and making sure that people are treated with respect. I have never watched “Big Brother,” but if Lynn is going to blog, I will have to look at that series.

    Ramona and Bethenny are honest to your face. I would rather be hit with their honest opinions while walking across a bridge than have someone, like the Jill team, be nasty behind my back and try to hurt me in the press.

  202. boston02127 says:

    I’m watching the show again, their at LuMann’s opening. Jill looks like an over grown giant Easter Peep in that pink shirt. What’s with Jill sticking her tongue out? Does she think she’s sexy? She’s about as sexy a load of poo.

  203. desertgal66 says:

    Okay, now Jill has insulted Sandra Bullock, so it’s WAR.

    Jill, America’s Sweetheart, you are NOT. And you do NOT, by any stretch of the imagination, look ANYTHING like Sandra Bullock. Sandy is beautiful, inside and out. YOU are a boil on the butt of humanity.

      Yeah and Jill was the one who made the vomit gesture when Ramona suggested she had a little Cameron Diaz vibe going on.

      Jill being mistaken for Sandy Bullock??? Now that’s simply unbelievable.

  204. RileyKitty says:

    I think the blog is going crazy again. Comments are moving around… sigh

    • shantygal says:

      They are. As with most fuckups, it’s all jill’s fault.

    • desertgal66 says:

      I think, when Lynn deletes a troll post, it shifts any replies to that post to the end of the comments.

  205. celeste says:

    I hate Jill Zarin. When is the passive-aggressive cow going to update her blog? The ONLY reason she befriends people is for what SHE can get out of it. She only wants Bethenny as a friend because she wants the public to like her again, and then she wants to be in Bethenny’s new show. I’m quite sure Jill secretly wishes she was Bryn’s godmother so she can justify interfering in Bethenny’s life. Alex can’t do anything for Jill, so Jill doesn’t give her the time of day. You know Jill – she’s a taker, wants all the freebies she can get whether they are things or people. JILL ZARIN YOU SUCK.

  206. boston02127 says:

    I wonder what Teresa does on Ash Wednesday.

  207. shantygal says:

    Lynn, Sorry if you’re busy, I just wanted to ask if you could start another Blog for comments? This one is rolling really slow. Thanks Lynn and if I don’t see you on here tonight have a great time tomorrow with Alex and Simon. I can’t wait to hear all about it.

  211. LynnNChicago says:

    We have close to 600 comments so Im going to just copy this same blog into a new post. Love all the comments!

  212. Cleo's Mommy says:

    I found this comment about Teresa and Joe here:


    Joe is a known deadbeat in the construction industry. He doesn’t pay his subs and recently he pissed of the WRONG roofing company, for which he’s going to have major problems coming his way. This is a company you don’t mess with and Joe knows better.

    Joe is so in debt, just watch it all unfold, you’ll see.

    He’s also known as a skirt chaser and has a beautiful blonde girlfriend.

    It will come out soon. Trust. But does anyone really care about this NJ juicehead? He looks and walks like an ape and Teresa’s face is from planet of the apes.

    Joe’s blondie looks like Nicole Brown Simpson. You’ll see. He got caught.

    Call It Like I See It says:
    June 1, 2010 at 9:21 pm

    you’re right about Joe. He has over 26 judgements for unpaid debt.

    Oh how I would love it if that bitch who is so judgmental of single women having sex is being cheated on.

    Would also love it if she lost that fucking ugly tacky house.

  213. A former Jill fan says:

    I just saw a pic of jill at her 25th reunion. She’s looking quite round in the belly there. She needs to read Bethenny’s books, Naturally Thin and Skinnygirl to help lost that baby fat. 😛

  214. CarrieCinKY says:

    Seeing Bethenny tell Jill what she really felt made me love & respect her EVEN more, & REAFFIRMED why she’s my favorite! B stood her ground, even went as far as telling Jill, “you don’t take responsibility in things…” and, “I don’t know if a friendship can be built over…” Bethenny is real. Way to go, Bethenny!
    Isn’t it funny how Jill is saying she DIDN’T gossip about B, what a joke, if I ever did hear one! Was she serious when she said that?! I agree with you Lynn, Jill is a MORON!
    Now that Jill has “let go” (right….) of her anger towards B, she is now focused on Alex, and it REALLY pisses me off watching it. The only thing Alex has ever done to Jill is deliver B’s message, which she DID feel bad about how she delivered it. Jill is a snake, and I had NO idea just how conniving she was until this season. She’s a LIAR. I can’t stand how she’s treating Alex, flat out ignoring her on the finale, I just wanted to slap Jill in her smug lil chipmunck face. LOL
    I think Ramona is VERY hurt by Jill’s comment, behind her back, “everyday is a milestone with her….”, all the while we see Jill throwing in Ramona’s face, “It hurt me b/c I thought Ramona & I were such good friends….” Um, if that were true, why you say something so hurtful to such a “good friend”? B was right in saying that Jill likes friendships of convenience, if Jill doesn’t get something out of it, she turns on you. Jill is no one’s friend.
    LuAnn acts like she’s better than others, her song is so ridiculous and embarrassing I mute it everytime it comes on! LOL I was so proud of Sonja as well for standing up to LuAnn and basically telling her to stfu while she’s talking, it’s rude! What a great moment, I’ve really come to love Sonja, she is a pretty pistol! ; ) I really hope that she’s back next season, because Bethenny did an interview saying she was 82% sure she was done with the show, and if B doesn’t come back, Sonja will be the one to lighten things hopefully.
    Ramona & Mario’s wedding was beautiful, & Avery has really grown into a beautiful young woman. I did tear up, they really are genuinly happy, and it’s so WONDERFUL to see that in a marriage, after 17 years! Their vows really touched me, they were genuine…. it was a great way to end the season.
    Great blog, Lynn! I can’t wait to see what else Bravo has in store for us, I hope it’s something new, intresting, & REAL.

  215. TNBelle2 says:

    Another good one Lynn. I am so glad you posted those tweets from Kelly. I had seen them and thought WTF is she doing. Then when I returned saw that she removed them. It was in the Post Production credit where I saw her name. As for Jill good GAWD!!! could a grown woman be so FAKE!!! FAKE!!! FAKE!!!. I found Ramona be her true self very entertaining and enjoyable to watch. I love the new Alex yes it is about time she let it go. The previews of the reunion look to be very INTERESTING to say the least. However I will say that this season of RHONY was not the show I started watching in the beginning. I found it to be a little stressful and difficult at times, and If I had a drama filled day it work I did not want to watch as it was TOXIC at times. I would TIVO and watch at a later date. It is just my unimportant opinion the negativity of the show overshadowed the what good there may have been. But I am elated it was finished on a beautiful note. Ramona and Avery looked marvelous even coco. Mario oooooo weeee how dashing and handsome that man is. All I can say to Ramona YOU GO GIRRRLLLL!!!!!!

  216. emt2 says:


    Kelly’s delusional interview for last year. She is so ‘inauthentic’ and such a liar.

  217. Lynn Dear..

    Was it really necessary to recap every thought in my head leaving me nothing to comment about now?

    Additionally, maybe you could use some help getting more commenters.. 640 + comments are a drip in the bucket..

    Great Recap lady and mozel to all your followers and your sucessful blog.

    Hello Lynn! I just want to THANK YOU for this wonderfully-written blog. I never thought I would find a blog that would enhance my RHONY “experience” as much as this blog has done over the past few weeks. You’re always spot on in your observations, and I agree with around 95% of what you say. 🙂

    I can’t wait to read what you have to say about the Reunion shows! I think I’m more excited for them than I am for Glee’s finale, and that is saying a LOT coming from me. lol!
