I Hate Jill Zarin                   Tuesday Housewife Hangover    June 8, 2010

Reposted the same blog to allow for additional comments

It is never-ending with these women!  I think we must have had a recent full moon because the housewives are on a roll.

Jill lost her mind over the weekend and posted that she was being threatened and had reported people to the authorities.  SO many people have true life, real, scary, life threatening stories to tell that this nonsense that Jill spewed really made me angrier and angrier as time went on.  When I first read it, I actually laughed, it was sort of comical and over the top. 

Over the past few days I have gotten emails and private messages on Twitter and Facebook about real life stalkers and men who have threatened women and attacks due to sick obsessed people, women who stalk men and people who ruin lives with this serious problem.  It also reminds me of some of the stories that come out of Hollywood of REAL celebrities who have stalkers and whose lives are in danger simply because they film movies or television and shoot magazine covers or are in the public eye for whatever reason.  People have been killed and seriously injured by stalkers.

For someone like Jill Zarin to post that idiocy just infuriates me!  She isn’t “all that” and there is no way in hell any authorities would have advised her to post anything about this on a social network!  Jill was angry and she reacted using very poor judgment!   She is not the sharpest knife in the drawer but worse than that, she is cheapening the real problem!

It has also been reported that Jill called Andy Cohen and Anti-Semitic.  A few who were present at one of her book signings claim that Jill said it during an interaction with fans at the function.  We don’t know for sure if it is true, it wasn’t filmed or recorded in any way but it sure sounds like something Susan Saunders aka Jill Zarin would say, doesn’t it?  Seems as though the game Andy played with Jill and Gloria on Watch What Happens Live “Good For the Jews / Bad For the Jews” didn’t go over too well in the Zarin household.  This was also the subject of the nasty tweet sent to Andy Cohen by Jill’s nephew Jon Wexler shortly after the show aired.  It is reported that Gloria, in particular, was very unhappy with the game. 

I did watch the Real Housewives of New Jersey last night and only because I was chatting with the group of RealFans.com did I not fall asleep!   If you like the Jersey girls you won’t enjoy my blog about them, if you don’t like them or don’t watch them you probably don’t care to read about them but here goes for nobody in particular. 

Feel free to skip on down to the final few paragraphs or just go ahead and make your comments if you’re as uninterested as I am. 

I am gob smacked, to use Simon’s word, that Bravo felt this was good enough to put on television.  IF this was the best that they could scrape together from 4-6 months of filming, I can only imagine the garbage that sits on the cutting room floor. 

Jacqueline is getting her mani/pedi and in walks Kim?  No one can convince me that Bravo would have jumped at the chance to film Jacqueline in the salon without anyone else joining her to talk to.  Someone convince me that they were filming her day of beauty just for the heck of it and Kim just happened to walk in at the same time.  It could happen….  If the conversation were interesting or exciting, it may have been worthwhile, but it led to….nothing except people wondering if Kim is going to replace Dina on the show.  Kim’s loyalties are in question.  Why is she complaining to Jacqueline about Danielle’s behavior?  Do we care?  Nope!

Teresa’s not a stage mom?  I don’t know, I don’t care, and the entire Gia wanting to be in the entertainment business is just so stupid!  Who cares?  We’re now months past filming and to my knowledge Gia hasn’t appeared in any movies, TV shows or stage shows so we know the outcome.  Gia’s talents aren’t going to pay the bills Mr. and Mrs. Giudice…maybe you should “get a job, girlfriend, you aren’t too pretty to work”. 

So Teresa doesn’t have a nanny, or any help at home?  Who is with the other children while you are carting Gia off to music, gymnastics, acting lessons, auditions?  We saw her babysitter making sauce with them, she DOES have help, or DID have help when they could afford it. 

Teresa put out her “official statement” regarding the bankruptcy, she indicated that some of Joe’s Real Estate deals had gone very bad and is causing their financial problems.  Andy Cohen was interviewed Monday morning saying that he didn’t know much about Teresa’s problems but he did know for sure that her house isn’t in foreclosure.  What an ass he made out of himself.  Stick to saying you don’t know Andy!

There has been a lot of speculation about the bankruptcy and what will happen to their home.  Bankruptcy, from my understanding, falls under federal laws and does not vary from state to state.  There are two types of filings, and I don’t know which one the Giudice’s filed but one is more of a consolidation of debt where the courts will take all of your creditors, negotiate them down to the lowest amount they will accept and based on the total amount owed, they will come up with a monthly amount to be paid, provided you can pay off all of your debt within a specific time frame, you can keep all of your overpriced goodies , it is really just a change in the way payments are made. 

The other form of bankruptcy forces you to give up all of your assets like your car and home and relieves you of all of that debt.   This is the short hand version I got from an attorney friend.  I am sure it is substantially more complex than that but I think it is pretty close or it could be completely wrong.

In any case, we watched and will probably continue to watch as Teresa spends money like she has a money tree in her backyard.  People have speculated whether or not Teresa knew how serious their money problems were and have discussed how much of this is the public’s business.  I even saw one moron who said that Bethenny probably put this information out to the press. 

First off, I highly doubt that Bethenny scans the New Jersey bankruptcy filings on a daily basis on the off chance that she may find a filing from the Giudice’s  then passed it along to the press.  I think she may have a few more important things to do.  Sheesh! 

IS it our business?  I don’t know, all of the other aspects of these women’s lives are out there for the press to report on and for people to speculate about.  Lynne Curtain from the OC’s financial problems were out there for the world to see, but I seriously doubt that Teresa was in the dark about all of this like Lynne claimed to be. 

Dina’s blog led many to believe that she is leaving RHONJ.  Whether she leaves or doesn’t leave, will it make much difference to viewers?  I don’t think so.  Her husband refuses to be on camera and her daughter isn’t on the show so her only interaction is with her cats.  She runs a charity organization and really her life is fairly dull so I don’t think anyone would really miss her much.

This meeting that she insisted on having with Danielle was absolutely ridiculous!  Dina has had enough interaction with Danielle to know that this meeting was not going to go as she anticipated.  Think about this, Dina wants to meet with Danielle (who she calls unstable) to tell Danielle that she never wants to meet with her again, wants her out of her life and is completely “Done” with her.  Let’s see, do you suppose Danielle is going to say, “Ok Dina, whatever you say, have a nice life, Bye!”?  Put this scenario into your life, is this something that you would ever do with someone you consider an enemy?  The show is really grasping at straws! 

Caroline’s story has become really all about her children.  We are seeing her kids being interviewed more than Caroline herself.  We’ve seen her daughter Lauren dating her son’s best friend and the “conflict” there, we’ve seen Chris being forced to deal with Danielle and her thugs at the Brownstone.  Never forget the brilliant scenes in the car wash and strip club. 

Caroline has been shopping with her husband, first for a suit, and last night for meat.   Caroline said in interviews that this is the “real” deal, this is her life and she’s not acting for the cameras, she doesn’t have anything to sell us, it is just her life out there on the screen.   I completely believe her because her life is as dull as the average person’s life!

Jacqueline, this season, seems to be all about her rebellious daughter and trying to reign her in.  She is out of control and we know from previews that it is only going to get worse.  I sometimes wonder if Ashley is being told to do some of these things just to stir the pot.   The smirk on that kids face is the most irritating thing I’ve ever seen!  It makes a pretty young woman look very ugly!  Clearly she has no remorse for anything she does.  Most of us have seen this angry, out of control behavior from a teenage girl before.  Whether it is a child, another relative or just a kid on television, teenage girls can be tough to deal with.  I don’t know where all of this anger comes from but Ashley has decided that she is the one to single-handedly take down Danielle and it is actually uncomfortable to watch.  Even Ashley’s boyfriend seemed disturbed by her behavior. 

Did I miss something or does Ashley not work or go to school?  I honestly don’t remember seeing anything about what she is doing with her life.  We did learn on Twitter that Ashley is living in one of her step-father’s houses but we don’t know if Jacqueline’s husband Chris, who gave her a car last season, is making her pay rent, but if I had to lay money on it, I’d say no money changes hands there. 

Just one more comment about Teresa.  I cannot find one redeeming quality about this woman!  She slammed Sonja in her blogs for no apparent reason other than to get some attention.  Her feeble mind most likely thought that Sonja would be in the same boat with any other new housewife and be shunned by fans simply for being new.  Teresa, as usual, was wrong!  She was wrong too in her decision to take to twitter to bash Bethenny!  For someone like Teresa to question Bethenny’s parenting skills is absolutely ridiculous!  Particularly when Teresa is shown driving her children without seatbelts, puts her two young daughters on an ATV without helmets, and  she and Joe are clearly implanting stereotypes in her children’s heads.  Joe using “Gay” to describe a dance instructor, Gia saying she doesn’t want to marry a Jewish man, and the classic line from an 8-year old girl, “I’m too pretty to work”.  After watching the children’s behavior, Teresa has no leg to stand on when giving out parenting advice! 

I am really shocked that Bravo put this drivel on the air!  I know that Jersey was very popular last season but I feel like they are taking fans for granted and assuming that fans will watch anything that includes these women on the screen.  I watch it for lack of anything better to watch, which is a sad statement for Monday night television. 

Watch for other updates from www.imstilltoni.com  and RealOldHouswife and AbsurdToSublime

Back to our REAL Housewives…

I’m looking forward to Thursday nights for the next several weeks.  We have two reunion shows for New York and we have a lost footage episode as well as the much anticipated show Bethenny’s Getting Married?  hopefully this will make up for the Monday night embarrassment for Bravo. 

Sonja Morgan has confirmed that she will join the ladies on the couch for the reunion only during the second portion of the show.  This makes perfect sense since she was only on during the second half of the season.  Jennifer Gilbert is not appearing at all.  Ramona confirms that two people storm out (we know one of them is Jill).  The previews appear as though Andy Cohen was right when he told fans that he hit all of the topics fans want to see but that he didn’t need to keep the pressure on to get real answers, the ladies called each other out. 

I think that the fact that Jennifer Gilbert does not appear on the reunion tells us a lot, it certainly leads me to believe she won’t be on next season. 

Feel free to comment, dispute anything I’ve said, debate over the shows and the housewives personal lives but please do not attack one another or use foul language.  That is all I am asking.  Thanks to everyone who has such great input into this blog by the great comments.  You are all so intelligent, funny and have such great insight into these shows.  Let’s have a great discussion!

  1. Squirrels says:

    Thanks Lynn. Always appreciate the efforts you make to entertain and often enlighten us.

  2. yesIwatchthiscrap says:

    That does get rather annoying to have the replies all over the place. Also Lynn…. a slight pet peeve of mine. The first post is always the “congrats Bethheny” post for May 8. While I do agree I am happy for her…it’s a drag to have to scroll past it everytime to get to the actual “new” post. Could be just me though, thanks!

  3. Jenni says:

    Gotta love Ramona! The purple dress comment and Jill’s face when she talks about having had no “work” done!

    • MAMAZ says:

      I don’t care if Ramona had work done or not. She looks amazing. If she had plastic surgery at least she went to someone who knows what he/she is doing. LuAnn looks hard. Kelly looks like she’s hanging on to a youth well past, it’s not attractive. Jill is looking really old. She needs to get Ramona’s doctor’s number.

    • Dolce says:

      Ramona did try to skirt around the issue of having work done. “Are injectables
      plastic surgery?” The, she doesn’t answer the question. Whatever she has or hasn’t done, she does look great. Her hair is chic, not long and stringy anymore like Kelly’s. and also Jill’s, she needs a new hairdresser.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      A pig with make up is still a pig!
      Jill needs an adult styled makeover.

      • kats2 says:

        Part of what makes Jill less attractive is her personality, same with Kelly – its’ amazing how the spirit and personality of person can really alter the physical aspects of how we view them.

    • causticbroad says:

      Wait a minute!! Did anyone notice that it looks like there is a sale sticker on the bottom of those Christian Loubotains that Jill is wearing on this reunion clip!! LOL!! OMG!! Another freebee??? Nothing wrong with sale shoes like the type I would buy from Marshall’s with a sticker on the bottom, but I am not the “fabulous” Jill Zarin. And what about the 4 media consultants??!! Someone please check this out and tell me if I am seeing things!

      • Robin says:

        I saw it too! At first I thought it was just worn out in that place and wondered why she would wear such worn out shoes..But when you mentioned it I went back and stopped the screen,I can’t say for certain but it doesn’t look like a worn spot.Too perfect…

        TC,Robin

        • causticbroad says:

          Thanks Robin!! Too funny. I also think I saw Bethanny glancing at her foot! What a riot! Let’s see if we can see more tomorrow night!

  4. Dolce says:

    Possible defense for Kelly and Danielle…note “possible.” Maybe 5 or 6 blogs back, someone posted a link to an extremely informative article written by a model in which she wrote about the sexual abuse and drug abuse in the industry. Also, in this article there was a link to another article about a movie that was made by a model on the same subject. If the person who posted that link could do so again it might explain a lot for those who didn’t have the opportunity to read it.

    Kelly: model at a young age…subject to sexual / drug abuse??? who knows? if this is true it could explain her lack of “feelings” and her Victorian views on sex.

    Danielle: She said she would follow her daughter wherever she goes for modeling, even to Milan. Could she know about this little talked about industry problem? Again, who knows? I want to believe she is trying to protect her daughter, her only redeeming value, IMO.

  5. Squirrels says:

    “The previews appear as though Andy Cohen was right when he told fans that he hit all of the topics fans want to see but that he didn’t need to keep the pressure on to get real answers, the ladies called each other out. ” LynnNChicago

    I think this warrants revisiting. Is it just possible, that by reading the multitude of blogs over the season, each HW figured out a strategy for the reunion gig, as well as had their own thoughts amplified? By that I mean thought out more fully.

    To this degree I suggest this blog as well as others symbolizes not just kids are using the internet’s power to come together like a village (don’t kill me for that metaphor), but that grass roots plebeians can alter the course of history. This tiny group of TV personalities is listening to us.

    I realize it isn’t a blog for world peace, but if it were? THIS group would rock.

  6. Squirrels says:

    DAMMIT. simile….. and I tried soooooo hard to not screw it up!
    (admits to splitting the infinitive so Jill would feel comfortable)
    😀

    • LynnNChicago says:

      Nice find Jenni!

    • CarrieCinKY says:

      Loved it! LOL

    • Kat says:

      That was hilarious! :O

    • Hooked On Housewives says:

      @Jenni. I can look at these videos over and over. Great.

      LMBO. The famous Gilles Bensimon is somewhere probably thinking, I used to (insert any sex act here) that crazy cow. What was I thinking?

      • katiecoo says:

        Snort! I love when the nutty stuff is concentrated like that. I want to see one that starts out with Jill Zarin telling Bethenny how she’s never gossiped about her, followed by cuts from just about every scene she’s in this season, gossiping about Bethenny.

    • boston02127 says:

      Thankfully Kelly has this video with hardened proof of everyone that was a bully to her. (eye roll)

  7. Squirrels says:

    Ok… for your reading pleasure –

    More tweets from the “Charlie of the MTA” dog.

    “@Bravo_Shrink:@GingerZarin When “mommy” takes u 2 Zarins is the dumpster filled w/ sympathy cards”<~yes but JZcalls that "the authorities'

    “@KVasil: @GingerZarin does Jill still take you to Zarin Fabrics”<~haven't been back since I was caught jumping from delivery dock

    There will be 2 reunion shows and a lost footage episode. Zarin fears the shot of her hypnotizing Kelly before St. John was caught on film

  8. Squirrels says:

    Jill and Ginger remind me of the song, Charlie of the MTA. If you ever lived in Boston, or New England for that matter, you know the tune.

    Jill IS the trolly (train wreck) and Ginger is watching the accident unfold with her own Ramona eyes.

  9. guest says:

    ashley blogged last nights episode. i find it odd that she refersto herself as a Manzo and to Caroline, Dina, Al etc as her aunts and uncle when she isn’t actually related to them or a Manzo…

    • guest says:

      she also calls Jacqueline’s husband her “dad” after stating that she is REALLY CLOSE with her actual father… strange

      • error 404 says:

        she’s also back at home.. whatever it takes I guess. 😛

      • sue says:

        I grew up with a step father and saw my father on weekends. I think it was easiest to call step dad dad because I was 6 yrs old. I do know I accidentally referred to him as dad in front of my father and felt bad.

        Just one of the consequences of divorce. As an adult I called my step dad by his name.

        Don’t know Ashley’s reasons but it is possible that the meaning of “dad” just gets diminished due to the situation?

        • Jennifer says:

          I hear you about the step thing but last night when Ashley called him Dad it sounded really forced and fake, also even if he Dad she still Laurita NOT Manzo

          • Free Ginger (formerly known as wolverinedg) says:

            As someone from a family full of steps, you don’t *ever* suggest that just because someone is a step, they aren’t a *real* member of the family. I realize that there are horrible “steps” out there, but for the majority who do get along, we consider ourselves to be just as *real* family as blood relations, thank you very much.

            That being said, I hate RHONJ more than I hate Jill Zarin.

      • Snarkapalooza says:

        I imagine when your stepdad buys you a brand new, tricked-out Jeep Cherokee, you call him MISTER Dad.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Isn’t Jackie’s husband Dina and Caroline’s brother? If so then Ashley is a step Manzo?

      • error 404 says:

        The Manzo brothers own a catering hall together, and married sisters – Dina & Carolina Laurita.

        Their brother Chris Laurita is Jac’s husband, Ashley’s stepfather.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          Thank you! Now….is Teresa related to any of the other housewives/husbands? This has always confused me too!

      • TNBelle2 says:

        JacLaurita’s husband Chris is the brother of Caroline and Dina. I too was raised by a step, but in my eyes he is and always will be my daddy. I was very blessed for him coming into my life when I was 5yrs old. He taught me to drive, bought me my first and second cars, paid for my books while attending college, and walked me down the aisle when I married. When I acted up as a child disciplined me too (lol). I NEVER EVER knew any different I did not know the term step father until I was much older. My Dad/step always introduced me as his daughter and all the kids knew he was my dad. I viewed my biological father as just the seed I rode in on. The man that nurtured me was and is Daddy. He is deceased LOVED and MISSED. I may not have had his DNA I had something much much better his HEART and he had MINE.

        • guest says:

          i get that and completely understand where you’re coming from. but, ashley knows her dad, has always known him and claims to be close to him. even if jac’s husband was who she considered her “dad” she still wouldn’t be a manzo. she would be a laurita. this whole her calling herself a Manzo is what I thought was weird.

      I blocked you if you follow the person or family harassing me and mine. Please let me know if you need their info. My dog’s name is one of them. The use it to harass my family. SICK people. Jill

    • MickeyMouth says:

      damn it Ginger, you are an angry little beast but I may have to adopt you, lol

      • Kat says:

        Eukanuba for the little pooper that brings the snark! Jill never should have spayed her, the denial of sex has made her cranky.

    • RAR says:

      Lynn, you were mentioned by name! Congrats!

  11. CarrieCinKY says:

    Jill isn’t happy unless she’s the center of attention, and now she is with all of this “stalking & threatening” nonsense. She makes me so furious!!!! Her & Kelly can have each-other, I hope they’re happy together. Lol.

    I used to LOVE Teresa, followed her on Twitter, always giving her praises… I thought she was hilarious last season, and really genuine.
    I have totally changed my mind. I couldn’t believe she straight-out said that she talked to people that KNEW Bethenny, and that they had said she WAS nice and gracious “before” she got famous, but since she’s gotten a little famous, she’s become a bitch and uses people?
    I was totally blown away. Who in the hell does she think she is? Then she went a step further, and said, (paraphrasing) “Being a size 4 so quickly after having a baby isn’t realistic for real women” “She has a baby nurse, I do it all on my own”.
    Why is Teresa being so mean to Bethenny? Does anyone know? I can’t stand the sound of her voice now, Bethenny is my favorite, she’s finally happy, and it seems like all these women want to do is tear her down… with the exception of a few. It makes me so angry!
    So, Bethenny can be a little snarky. But she’s just trying to be funny! I think she’s hilarious! I truly feel as though Bethenny has NEVER intended to hurt someone deeply. She’s just a blunt person, and if you tell her it stung, I’m sure she’d apologize! I’ve never gotten a bad vibe from B. It totally hit a nerve in me when she started to break down talking to Jill, when Ramona set it up. All Jill could think about was her notes, & LuAnn wouldn’t leave them alone. I think that was the “done” moment for Bethenny.
    Sorry I wrote so much! LOL I’m just so let down by the Jersey girls, I really liked them last season, but this season is disappointing. And when Teresa went off on Bethenny… I lost all respect for her.
    Pay attention to your kids & debt Teresa, instead of what B is doing! And for heavens sake, someone buy helmets for those kids, that’s SO dangerous!

    • error 404 says:

      wait… what?

      I never lost respect for Teresa because I never had any. Who’s flips a table in a restaurant in front of kids and family because somebody told you to pay attention? She’s so classless.

      And… just in case someone may have cut her some slack because it was a moment of anger, not only is she not contrite, but she brags about it. She bring sit up all the time. It’s her thing. Who want sot be famous for flipping a table in public? Classless.

      I love what she and Kiki have in common… they called another woman a “ho-bag” , are completely unapologetic about it, and then brag about it repeatedly. Classless.

      And I’m sorry, but any woman calling another woman a whore just because she doesn’t like her, is just as bad as one straight guy calling another a fag. Just as bad.

      • CarrieCinKY says:

        I totally agree with you. I don’t know WHAT was going through Teresa’s mind when she flipped that table. Classless is the best word to describe it, so you hit that nail on the head! And I had never thought about that…. in the NJ previews they have Teresa flipping a table, even in the new Bravo commercial! I don’t think it’s right either, to make light of the fact of her actions, especially around the children. (Danielle’s were underage).
        However, I simply liked her because she made me laugh! At times she just wasn’t with it, in her own little world… it made me laugh!
        The lash out at Bethenny was over the top, & I no longer follow Teresa, (on twitter) this past week she’s said some really disgusting things, HURTful things, not only about B, but Sonja too! And Teresa openly stated she had never met Sonja…
        So, yes, maybe I should’ve noticed Teresa’s color’s earlier, so to speak.. but Oh well, better late than never.
        I can’t even stand the sound of her voice now.

  12. Kelly-Has-Big-Shoulders says:

    @ CarrieCinKY I feel the same way you do. TOTALLY!!

    • CarrieCinKY says:

      Thank you! : ) Oh, you are so right, too… Kelly does have Big Shoulders! LOL

  13. Squirrels says:

    CarrieCinKY – I imagine B had a chance to think long and hard about that moment in her life. My armchair guess? She finally was forced to weigh all the “stuff” she was experiencing at the time. Even jugglers have their limit of objects in the air.

    In this analysis, she stopped dead in her tracks, said something snarky to herself and declared, “What the fuck was I thinking?”

    • CarrieCinKY says:

      LOL I bet she did too…
      For me, watching Bethenny this season… I just wanted to give her a big hug! I just felt like at some points she was confused on who to trust in her life, and she was just trying to be happy, because it’s all she’s ever wanted… and no one could be genuinely happy for her.
      Had to be tough.

  14. WindyCityWondering says:

    While watching RHONJ my teenage son wandered in during the Ashley text and facebook scenes – his unsoliciated comment: “She’s a total tool! You (meaning me) would take away my computer and phone for life if I ever did something that stupid and that would be for starters!” While I am not sure what a total tool is except that it is not a good thing to be, it is clear to me that Jackie never set any rules or boundries with Ashley and the family is only concerned with her activities being traced back to her. Since the Danielle vs everyone theme is too boring Bravo is going into the area that is cringeworthy – kids behaving badly!

    • error 404 says:

      yup.

      Just in case you missed it, Ashley’s step cousin ran a stripper carwash for a day, then entertained his friend by throwing food on the floor. You know, food they could eat in Africa: well it’s only a nerf ball to this Manzo-head.

      meanwhile: Teresa’s kids continue to whine and complain. One’s too pretty to work, she wants to be a model. Even that she cocks up cause she refuses to work, and refuses to lose her beautiful NJ accent.

      The one second of good parenting that came on this entire show was when Dina’s ex pilled his daughter from it.

  15. Gingers poo says:

    In case you missed it. The more you read, the worse it gets.

    Is she implying law suits against people on Amazon too?

    Delusional. Can’t wait for part two!

    I hope A Chandler on Amazon sees this.

    There are a lot of people who wrote very vindictive, nasty things about my book on Amazon, which were very hurtful. They accused me of things that aren’t true, but based on my legal advice and some pending lawsuits, I can’t respond And people, they damaged my book and my reputation unknowingly, maliciously, saying things I did, that I didn’t do…

    I have to wait my time until I handle that, but the truth is that people who wrote things on Amazon used it as a blog… Here’s what I think. There’s another site called television.pity, which is where all these people will go and comment on shows, and they shut it down because it got so hostile. And they had to find a place to talk, and they couldn’t do it on Bravo-TV, because there’s no interaction.

    They tried to do it on Facebook, but I can block, and you can block, and other characters can block; so they went on my Amazon where it became like a free for all, where people wrote negative, horrible things.

    (Some) people wrote beautiful reviews – it was average for that kind of book. We got like 35 five-star reviews, which is what any average book would normally get. Nobody gets like 150 one-star reviews – those people never read the book People accuse me of saying things – like that’s not true… If you just want to write nasty things on my character because of the TV show and how I was edited, well, shame on you… and anti-Semitic attacks saying is Jill good or bad for the Jews – how anti-Semetic to say that. But like I say – I will have my day.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      She just never stops! Why isn’t anyone telling her to shut up???

    • A former Jill fan says:

      LOL! Poor poor jill! Whah, whah, whah!

      She’d have to sue every internet venue with hate jill comments to stop us. LOL! And she still wouldn’t win.

      Like I said before, someone like jill who can’t take the negative comments that she has received for her own bad behavior needs to stay out of the public eye.

      Actually, the comments on Amazon have been true and very mild compared to some other venues. If any comment doesn’t follow Amazon’s posted rules, and it is brought to Amazon’s attention, Amazon removes it.

      Case in point: when I checked Chandler’s comments section this afternoon, J. Samples had left a comment earlier today and Amazon had already deleted it.

      • A former Jill fan says:

        OMG! Jill is making a fool of herself in that article:

        I was accused of paying someone $25 an hour to do my Facebook. First of all, if I was going to pay someone, I’d pay them like $8 an hour minimum wage – you don’t have to be a brain surgeon to press delete… just because it’s written and just because someone says it, doesn’t make it true.

        No wonder her facebook deletions wasn’t being kept up! LOL! Did she just insult minimum wagers! 😛

        • Kat says:

          Maybe she should pay that minimum wage earner to break her jaw, as her PR people can’t shut her up.

        • Snarkapalooza says:

          The part about minimum wage I can believe. Jill is cheap.

          “Just because you say it, doesn’t make it true” is apparently Jill’s new mantra – rivaled only by “neener neener” in the Hall of Fame of Comebacks.

    • Sue says:

      Jill is starting to believe her own lies or what she believes is the truth. She says there was more to the fight with Bethenny, but B was not the one holding onto a message for months so that she could air it all on the show. How many times did Bethenny try with Jill? Then Bethenny gets her own show and about a month later Jill wants to be friends again. Something smells fishy.

      In Jill’s own mind she has martyred herself and she just doesn’t understand how she looked so bad on the show. Uh, hello watch the show!

      • A former Jill fan says:

        That’s true Sue, Jill martyred herself.

        Jill never got to use her notes is what’s bothering her. She just had to bring that up and say it was a lot of things that added up to her decision to end the friendship with Bethenny.

        Jill, get over it! Nobody cares about your stupid notes! We saw what you did to Bethenny on tv. Now you’re saying you ended the friendship and there was a lot of things…blah, blah, blah. Who cares?

        • A former Jill fan says:

          jill said “i gave them my person and I don’t like how they destroyed my image…”

          Now she’s blaming “they”. LOL!

          Look in the mirror Jill, it was you. All YOU!

      • RileyKitty says:

        @free Ginger there is a secret to why her & B quit being friends, it’s called B got her own show, Jill didn’t & now she is jealous.

    • dee says:

      Quick! Somebody call a WAH-bulance for Jill.

    • Free Ginger (formerly known as wolverinedg) says:

      I had to stop after she lied about there being an additonal sooper sekret reason why she & B will never be friends again…comes just before she lies about talking it all out at Ramona’s…I thought she didn’t have her notes!

      • Slynn says:

        I like how she used the typical “bad edit” schtick to justify her complaining about no food at Ramona’s wedding. It’s not her fault, and she didn’t say it to a whole room, just a million people in their living rooms… but here’s the thing. At every event Jill has ALWAYS had a complaint, and while maybe she doesn’t complain the whole time, one or two complaints for every event she goes to makes her the kind of person I can’t stand.

        I think the reason we never see a clip like that of Alex, complaining about the inadequacies of someones hosting abilities, is because she actually has class and is not a huge whiner!

    Wonderful to see happy, fun people in here today.

  17. Squirrels says:

    Speaking of What the fuck…. this song goes out to Bethenny.
    If you link to this, just be advised, take it lightly. Jenny Owen Youngs uses a great mixture of classical romantic strings with some hilarious (yeah i, too, thought of hitting him with a frying pan) lyrics. My daughter put in on a compilation cd for me after she broke up with boyfriend # 1. I laughed like hell.

    I’m taking a chance here, lol.

    • Kat says:

        Liked it alot, being here in the desert watching those raindrops along with that beautiful voice I found it was very relaxing. 🙂

      • Squirrels says:

        That was great. I also loved that she set the lyrics to her tune on uTube . thanks much.

    • TLM says:

      I’d like to know WTF was Jill thinking when she put all those bizarre bangles together in her outfit at the reunion… LOL.

  18. Kip says:

    If Danielle was out of the scene in NJ, there would be absolutely nothing to talk about on that show- stupid! I did love Teresa’s book but I find it offensive that she can blow off oweing that much money to bad land/business deals when it was an overabundance of buying things not needed, on her part too. No accountability. She recently said she’d rather her kids have good morals- that was her goal. What about fiscal responsibility?

    • Squirrels says:

      “What about fiscal responsibility?”

      Didn’t that die out with Reagan?

      • twoile says:

        Really love this site I’ve been lurking on, it/you all have great insight, humor, & literacy!!!!!!! Need 2offer ” Squirrels” that the real fiscal expert (draw in breath here) like/hate him as u may, was “Blanced Budget Clinton”, the only one in my lifetime that I’m aware of. Thanks for great reading enjoyment.

  19. Amber...Real Wife says:

    Jill wanted sympathy. Not from cards, but from fans. She called the cops and was told WTF and “Get a Hobby”. Not satisfied with that reaction, she decided to plant the threatening mail story. Because of course, mean ole jillzilla had to protect Ginger. They are the WE. Eff Bawwbby and Allllley. Now, Jill happy. Name in Media Again, this time as victim, not the bad guy. And right before the reunion airs…PERFECT!

    I believe Danielle was indeed the victim of molestation. She is so damaged. Her need for approval, her promiscuity, bad choices in men… her need to be protected. Hey, we all know she’s a liar on some things, but her pattern is definitely of a girl abused. We all may not like her fantastic stories but we have to admit something EffedUp happened here.

    Teresa the Bankrupt Cavewoman wants to keep her house, car, furnishings, clothes and jewelry. Oh, how wonderful. She financed her new home by ripping off the equity of the other homes. She shopped like a woman without a budget on TV, yet now we are told she can’t afford that lifestyle. She gets 10k a month in financial assistance from family, and she and JizzyJoe make 7k a month. Will 17k be enough to reaffirm over 2 million in debt? Stay tuned as they try for a “FRESH START” and Gia keeps her JOISY accent while she drinks CAWWFFEY. You gotta love it! LOL

    Poor Dina defending Teresa the Terrible. Always the bridesmaid never the bride, huh Dina? Next we have Dina trying to do the old “Your down here, I’m up here” moment from RHONY. Hey Dina, use a phone and say “Bitch we are done! Don’t call, text, drop by, nothing, nathan, nada! Vamoose son of a bitch!” But no, She gives Danielle a platform to sharply defend herself, for a lunatic, and gets the ejaculate of Danielle’s dick squirted all over her Chakras LOL. Crazy old Danielle…what will we do without her?

    All the TH’s of BashleyAshley, wow! Ahsley may be newest housewife by shacking up with Blockbuster dude. Hello, has anyone heard of Redbox? $1 Rentals made Blockbuster a closed down memory. To Ashley fat arms comment=death threats. No one talks about her arms…NOBODY! Jac lost control of that bus long ago. While Jac was trying to get knocked up, her daughter was practicing her knockdown WWE moves. Clotheslines are her specialty, even though she doesn’t do laundry!

  20. Rusty says:

    I do have to say that I think these reality programs (BRAVO, MTV) REALLY rip off the cast members as far as salary. MTV will run reruns forever, on different channels, and the kids don’t get a dime. It didn’t make much sense for the RHONJ girls to sign a three year contract either . . . if that indeed, is the case.

    • A former Jill fan says:

      I guess it was into the second season of OC when my sister said those women are getting paid for being on the show.

      I didn’t believe her. 😮 I thought the reality shows were just like reality competition shows.

      But soon after that I searched the net and did find some articles aobut it. I couldn’t believe these women were being paid. After all, to me, they were getting free advertising. LOL!

      • Kat says:

        I thought the housewives were paid 4 xs the amount cited in TG’s bankruptcy filing. Maybe they do need to write books and break out in song to pay the bills.

        • TLM says:

          Some shows aren’t paid the same as others. It goes by ratings and negotiations. I read that the NJ women got $3,333 per show, and that NYC got a raise last year and the women now get $10,000 per show. But they make it clear any of them can be replaced, so that usually keeps them from demanding too much. I sincerely doubt NJ will get any kind of a raise; they’ll be lucky if there is another season after this at all. It was just a bad premise to have 3 members of the cast being sisters, and to have the whole cast be Italian. With Beverly Hills and DC, there is no reason to bring NJ back, at least for a while.

  21. chismosa says:

    hi everyone, and Lynn-
    can someone tell me – in a nutshell perhaps- and only if someone wants to- what the hell happened on here where people were fighting and rude, etc? Were there actual Jill defenders on the site? What on earth was so bad and mean on poor Lynn’s FABULOUS site? This is a place of ‘LOVE AND LIGHT’ where we all come to exorcise our hate of Jill from our pores, what on earth happened? Thanks….

    #2, not sure if someone mentioned earlier, but since WHEN does stupid chipmunk face Ashley drive a LAND ROVER when last season was all about the Jeep they had secretly gotten for her? i dont care what anyone, even Lynn says, but the way Ashley is is getting me so fed up, I’m close to Jill Zarin here… and the one it mostly criticizes is her mother. Jacqueline is the one who looks bad here. Only her. What awful awful parenting to have yielded such a disgusting daughter. I’m sorry, i just had to say that.

    Show is boring> will not last long> i think Dina is the one going off, no?

    re: the reunion, thursday>> anyone who is a Nielsen home please be sure to watch Bethenny’s show, and let’s all get our prayers on that Jill truly walks out forever and ever. xo

  22. Hooked On Housewives says:

    Anything for a laugh. There is a RHWONYC poll on Bravo.tv.com,

    Which NYC Housewife do you predict will storm off the reunion set?
    Bethenny, Ramona, jillousy, Kellamity, Sonja, LuMann or ANDY. That’s a howl. Housewife Andy.

  23. emt2 says:

    I’m kinda sick of Jill thinking that she is a celebrity who has a Q rating to protect. I couldn’t believe that Jill had 4 media consultants as if she were having a sit down with Diane Sawyer like Michael Jackson and Lisa Marie Presley. Jill was acting like she has major endorsements, a talent agency, record company making a lot of money off of her and were thus, invested in her image. She boasts that she has the same agent as Tom Cruise. Enough said. Delusions of grandeur.

    • Squirrels says:

      I don’t see JZ as delusional. I see her as an idiot. Can’t help myself.

      Since it is not brain surgery her 4 PR people are actually 2 minimum wage earners paid to delete objectable posts. That’s why she was alone at her website trying to figure WordPress reply options.
      She is real savvy with money.

    • twoile says:

      Who is that his (TC’s jump the couch) sister!

  24. Ellabean says:

    From Jill’s Boston book signing interview this past weekend (see up thread):

    She said:
    “There’s another site called television.pity, which is where all these people will go and comment on shows, and they shut it down because it got so hostile.

    I say : you know that is complete Bullshit , Jill. As much as I hate that Strega at the TWoP site, it was shut down (paraphrasing Strega, the moderator there) because it became too much of ‘an aggragate about media gossip and news info rather than about the show itself. ‘

    BUT the site was shut down around April – 21st – right when Jill’s Amazon debacle became known. At the height of the shows great ratings. That Forum was on FIYAH ! TWoP wants eyes and hits on that site to see ads – that’s how they make $.

    So either the Real NYC Forum was shut down for one of 2 reasons:
    1. Because the discussion was buzzing about Jill’s Amazon.gate and Strega was honest about the reasons.
    – or –
    2. Jill…..did get legal on their ass (TWoP). And got her attorney sister to do some sort of cease and decist (sp).

    But – it was not because it became “hostile”. TwoP doesn’t shut down hot sites permanently for that . If anything they shut a site down to allow for a cooling off period so the point is made to get posters back on topic.

    …and Jill says that she has ‘several pending lawsuits’ (WOW – how’d you like to be juggling that on your to- do list). And who says that in the press…?

    • JillHater says:

      Actually, the same company that owns BRAVO owns the TWOP website. The original founders sold it to them a few years back. So, I think that they saw that the amazongate stuff was really about to hit the fan and wanted to preemptively stop any recognition of it on the TWOP. So maybe it’s a combination of your theories.

  25. emt2 says:

    Someone posted an excerpt from Danielle’s book and let’s just say, homegirl is kinda crazy.

    Danielle’s “story” is like Nightmare on Elm Street. It reads like the backstory of a crazy killer in a horror movie.

    Mother was raped by a priest in Italy/Sicily and flew to America. By the way, Danielle thinks that her knowledge about first class on airplanes came from remembering flying in her mother’s womb. But, what’s weird is that she said her mother was young and poor and I’m wondering how she was able to fly first class.

    I don’t even know what Danielle is talking about.

    • chismosa says:

      emt2- is that what the hullaballoo was about? what Lynn was responding to that people were getting nasty? Sorry, i just wasn’t sure if you were responding to my question…
      thanks

      • emt2 says:

        I don’t think it had to do with Danielle. I think that some posters were disagreeing about sharing Jill’s address or something like that. I’m not sure exactly what the hullaballo was about but am pretty sure that it didn’t have anything to do with Danielle.

        No, I was responding to your post in particular. 🙂

    • kats2 says:

      Wow your excerpt made me picture her sitting in the corner of an empty room with a flashlight rocking back and forth as told her incoherent stories to the person who actually wrote the book for her.

    • PFinFL says:

      I read some of the first chapter they had online. It was bizarre! Way beyond delusional. I think Danielle wants to be some Italian princess high society type person but she is sooooooooooooooooooooo far off. She is honestly embarrassing herself! Last nights episode was just crazy again with her interviews. I don’t get how she can’t see how crazy her thinking really is. Ugh…

  26. kats2 says:

    I think the very young and lazy Ashley is trying to make her living off of Twitter and riding mommy and the aunties coat-tails on this show. Ashley wants to be the next NJ HW and break her way into show business. That’s why she hooked up with a guy who works at Blockbuster and is living the life as the single girl in NJ who spends her days tweeting and soon will come out with her own hit record and make up line.

  27. chismosa says:

    The lunch with Bethenny was an hour lunch — you saw four minutes. Of course, it was. What do you think? I came, I sat, I talked to her for four minutes and got up? No! We had a full meal. I had a hamburger, she had a salad. We had dessert. I mean,… it’s cut down, because of time. (They show) the meat of it and the essence of it, and that’s what they try to get to. Sometimes they get it better than other times, and I’ll live with that.

    i thought Bethenny said in interviews that Jill did not eat anything at the lunch at Le Cirque?

  28. Kelly-Has-Big-Shoulders says:

    Chismosa- I read the same thing according to Bethenny Jill did not eat.

    • katiecoo says:

      I read that too. Which has now turned in to Jill eating a hamburger and Bethenny eating a salad. Why would Bethenny make that up? Maybe Jill did have her hamburger, on the way home after Bethenny dismissed that whole debacle.

      • Sue says:

        Exactly. In all the time I’ve watched RHONY or read an article of Bethenny’s has there ever been anything that she has said that has been a lie or even a bit of a fabrication? Not that I know of. So I am going to take Bethenny’s word on what happened as to Jill who has done nothing, but bad mouth and threaten those she does not like.

        • viki55 says:

          I agree. I think I will watch that sceen one more time to see what is in front of Jill.

      • Adgirl says:

        That’s because Jill was soooo busy twalking that she didntt eat and Bethenny sat there, finished her salad then left.

        • viki55 says:

          She says she is really nervous & has butterflies in her stomach (usually makes you not so hungery). Still watching.

          • viki55 says:

            You never really see anything on the table except a dinner roll by Bethenny in the final sceen. Had to stop it fast before Luman starts singing. That song gets stuck in my head, and not in a good way!

        • morning says:

          except when they’re cold, like after you bring them to a lunch to take home later

  29. katiecoo says:

    So Jill is suing someone for saying things that aren’t true on amazon? Does this mean she might be vulnerable to a lawsuit for falsely publishing to the world that Bethenny had had her baby boy? Hours before B delivered her baby girl?

    “saying things I didn’t do”. Is she somehow still trying to sell she’s not Susan Saunders? I’d love to hear her attempt to deny/explain that one.

    • Squirrels says:

      Perhaps Katiecoo. She may also be forced to answer for her own misdeeds at Amazon. Hmmm…. Jill Zarin does not a rocket scientist make.

      (special shout out to Kelly. TY for the ammo GF)

    • Sue says:

      Maybe Jill needs some lessons on how the internet works. People can find out who is sending what by an IP address OR if she is going to court with this they WILL ask to see her hard drive, SIM card, etc to see exactly what she (Jill) and/or family/assistants have sent. Get real!!!

    Jill: Be Careful for What You Wish For!!

    You craved & demanded fame and recognition. You got it!

    Only it’s notoriety for your infamous behavior. Ooops.

    It’s interesting to me that many reality show cast members understand the value of being the “hated one”.
    Omarosa (Apprentice) embraced it. Survivor had an entire tribe of villains this past season (what was my boyfriend Rob doing on that team arrgh??!).
    Jill’s self image is so fragile that she needs Needs NEEDS the fame and she expects it for being the warm, clucking but sophisticated yenta.
    Wow. Did she blow it big time.
    If Jill had kept the argument between herself and Bethenny without recruiting others then I think we could have taken sides equally. It would have been a misunderstanding rather than a full blown crisis. Kelly probably would have continued blathering on in the background if Jill and LuAnn hadn’t been cheer leading her.

    Oh, well. If Jill hadn’t miscalculated then there would never have been an I Hate Jill Zarin blog and message board would there??

    THANKS LYNN!

    • emt2 says:

      totally agree!

      she tried to gather an army against Bethenny and now she’s trying to do it with Alex.

      She better be careful bc now everyone sees what she is doing in realtime. this isnt like w Bethenny, when we didnt see what had exactly occurred. We see it now with Alex, Andy Cohen, etc. and it aint pretty.

      Jill is dangerous for Bravo and is a major headache, who needs to be removed from the show. Trust me, Jill isnt the heart of the show. If anything, Ramona is. Jill is dispensable because someone else can play her “role” easily.
      Jill is more problems than she is worth.

    • dee says:

      I agree with her about the Manzo’s. I mean even if the Manzo father was involved it doesn’t mean that the children are.
      Now as for Juicy Joe, his means of making money are very, very questionable. Even with their salary and whatever they get from family members, you can’t live that lifestyle. And let me tell you, that through a family member of mine, I learned that those that pay in cash for everything usually have something to hide.

      Didn’t Caroline say in last nights episode that they started the Brownstone 35 years ago?

    Someone posted this on Bravo message board:

    Hi, I don’t know if you read the original post and maybe I didn’t make it clear. But there is a certain person who likes to say there is no difference between Jacqueline, cigarette girl with her fake DD’s or whatever he called her, and Danielle the so called paid escort. And I was being snarky but truthful and made a comment about the difference as I see it. I will try to make it more clear this time.

    Basically my husband is a life time member in a Motor Cycle Club. If we were out in a bar or club (in our younger days we party a lot) and Jacqueline and Danielle were both working there, the club members may hit on Jacqueline and tease her and see if they could get anywhere. They would not touch her or disrespect her. That is because in my opinion she has respect for herself and would let it be know. On the other hand. Danielle (in my opinion) would go with these guys and would be taken back to the club house and have a train pulled on her. One after another, and enjoy it. That is because she has no self respect. Any women that allowed herself to go on national tv and do and say the things she has would not have a problem with doing what I just said.
    Would they rape her? No. Would they do anything that she would not want done to her? No. Now that is the difference between Jacqueline and Danielle. As I see it.

    I am not saying all the guys would participate. I was with my husband 98% of the time, we and the other guys with wives or girlfriends would go home. Would I say 100% that if I was not there my husband would not participate. No. I am never absolute about anything. I would hope not and he has never given me any reason to think he would or did.

    Someone tried to say these were terrible guys. I say these guys are no different than any other group of guys. As a women if you have no respect for yourself how do you expect someone else to show you respect. If you go down on your knees you are responsible.

    He!! I had some guy in a suit attack me in the parking lot of Applebee. He ripped my blouse but I was able to get away. Thank God!

    If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,
    If you can take criticism and blame without resentment ,
    If you can conquer tension without medical help,
    If you can relax without liquor,
    If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,
    Then you are probably the family dog.

    And you thought I was going all spiritual on you!

    Easy enough to claim pending lawsuits, if you talk to am attorny you could say ‘pending’ ….. Her lawyer could say you have no case, and she would consider it pending. Lol

    US Weekly
    I just watched the video and read the article about Theresa’s financial woes.
    First the video – I LOVE ALEX MCCORD! LOVE!LOVE!LOVE!
    There, I got that out of my system.
    Theresa – Poor Theresa. She’s says she’s staying positive, she has her health and her family , what more could anyone want. Please note I paraphrased. If that’s all she needs why the hell did they run up $11 million dollars in debt? She also added that this situation is happening all over the world. I hate how she is acting like this is something that just “happened” to her when the truth is she brought it on herself. And now others will suffer for her life of extravagence(sp?).
    Did anyone notice in the photo that accompanied the story she was wearing a black turban? I almost didn’t because the way it sat on her forehead, or lack thereof, it looked just like her hairline! I had to look twice ’cause I thought “what the hell has she done to her hair now?” Another failed effort, just like the bangs ,of hiding her simian hairline. Poor Theresa I’m guessing the spa won’t let her charge threading now.

  39. SunshineNYC says:

    Thanks Lynn! The one sentence that stood out for me is about Teresa not having one redeeming quality. I totally agree!

  40. Rusty says:

    I like Teresa.

    • MorgaineSwann says:

      Me, too, mostly.

    • kats2 says:

      O.M.G. not an attack just complete shock.

    • A former Jill fan says:

      I used to like Teresa until she started getting foul mouthed on her bravo blogs and attacking others for no reason. I thought she started doing that (was it after the 2nd season of Atlanta or a season of OC or both?) because some of the other housewives were talking/acting badly. And I didn’t like the table flipping. 😦

  41. MorgaineSwann says:

    Hey – I’m struggling to keep up, but I want to say a few things about what different people are talking about.

    Bethenny can be snarky, but I’ve never heard her say anything about anyone that wasn’t true. Those women need to lighten up and laugh at themselves if they’re going to be on reality TV.

    If you want all the dish on Danielle, Death by a 1000 Papercuts has tons of information from her ex-huband, links to the court documents, breakdowns of her varying stories about her real parents, etc. She never had an Italian/Brooklyn accent until she got on this show, BTW. She LOVES playing mafiosa to the extent that she sought one out. Danny Pro is the real deal.

    Ashley is victimizing Danielle because she can. While obviously a matter of degree, Danielle is right when she says it’s “KKK” style harassment. It’s called The Lucifer Effect in a book by the professor who discovered the problem. If you give even an average person power over another, it goes to their head and they become very sadistic. The way the Manzo’s, whom I love, dog on Danielle, they have dehumanized her and Ashley feels justified in picking on her. Yes, Danielle should ignore it, but Danielle is quite obviously mentally ill. The logical result of this is what happens to Ashley at the end of this season. They’re lucky no one was hurt worse than that. Frankly, Ashley earns what she gets.

    I love Dina, she’s my second favorite housewife, behind Bethenny, but I’m preparing myself for the fact that she’s going to leave the show. In a way, she never came back this year. From reading her blog, it’s pretty clear that when she looked up at Chakra and saw Danielle’s thugs at the bar, that was it for her. She knew that Danielle was perfectly capable of hurting her and she’s got a kid to think of. I’ll be very surprised if Dina doesn’t move, with or without her husband.

    Crazy like Danielle doesn’t go away. She has no boundaries and no sense of propriety. I am not exaggerating when I say Dina’s life is in danger. I could kick Zen Jen’s ass for telling Dina to meet with her. All that did was pour salt in Danielle’s wounds. Jen has obviously never been around this type of sociopath. You can’t reason with her. Other people don’t exist to Danielle – they are simply things to be used and when a person won’t give Danielle what she wants, her one and only reaction is RAGE. Danielle was dying for her “boys” to tear up the Brownstone. She was disappointed that they didn’t. She was hoping Dina would give her a reason to tell them to attack at Chakra. She’s not out of control of herself the way Kelly is – she’s focused, obsessive, vindictive and violent. She loves power games and probably enjoys hurting people. I fear for her kids when they try to pull away from her as they grow up.

    Kim G. also has no concept of whom and what Danielle really is, and she’d better figure it out, because Danielle is a tragedy waiting to happen. It’s not “if,” it’s “WHEN.”

    • viki55 says:

      Wow, pretty scary. So you don’t think Danielle is putting on an act? It is hard to imagine Bravo having someone that evil on the show but then again, they have no problem with crazy Kelly. I was thinking Dina might just grow a set of balls (or borrow Bethenny’s) ’cause it just seems a little too obvious that she would be the one gone. Bravo usually leads us the wrong way in these hints.

      • anutha hata says:

        Sorry I am waaay too lazy to remember where I saw this, but someone, somewhere, pointed-out that Kim G. was at The Brownstone, with the Manzo family for the event that they had to view the first episode of the season.
        I’m glad that Kim G. spoke-up about how Danielle could have chosen a better escort. The way he was using vulgar language in front of her with zero respect, when it was obvious that it was making her uncomfortable was just so crude & rude.
        I don’t know if Kim G. is the replacement NJ Housewife or not, and I didn’t like her at first because I thought she might be a trouble-maker, or some drunk that wandered in off the street who wanted to be on television, but I am starting to warm-up to her a little.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          Danielle’s crazy is dangerous to other people. Kelly’s crazy is mostly confined inside her head.
          Neither of them are entertaining to watch.

        • Sue says:

          I don’t think Kim G. is a replacement. On some site they had the titles of the episodes and one was something like “Meet Briana” who is supposed to be a friend of Danielle’s because let’s face it, Danielle will not be invited to anything with the other ladies.

      • MorgaineSwann says:

        No, Danielle is not acting.

        By process of elimination, it has to be either Dina or Caroline who is leaving because we see scenes from later in the season that include Teresa, Jacqueline, Ashley and Danielle. Caroline could leave, since she refuses to acknowledge Danielle at all, but I really think it’s Dina. As much as I’ll be sad to see her go, I don’t blame her. She’s got a kid to think about, and she’s the focus of Danielle’s obsession.

        But, hey, I could be wrong. Wouldn’t be the first time, LOL!

        • MickeyMouth says:

          I know this just could be Bravo trying to make people think it’s Danielle, however I remember something in the promos about them (Teresa or Jacqueline) toasting getting rid of Danielle?

          • A former Jill fan says:

            Weren’t they in Italy and it was Teresa toasting and I think I remember seeing Caroline’s husband at the table, so at least Caroline remains, I guess.

            This is terrible! I even have watched the commercials when I’ve said I will no longer watch this show. LOL!
            😛

      • shantygal says:

        I’m pretty sure Danielle has her own set of nads. She’s just a good tucker.

        • Robin says:

          @ Shanty…LOL good one.

          Also I meant to ask you on another thread when we were talking about this site being mentioned on tvgasm.I can’t find it now.I know I saw it last night..do you have a link?

          TC gasmi,Robin

    • twoile says:

      I sooooooo agree Danielle can certainly be dangerous via using others etc look at her history….not just poor choices……character flaws personality disordered….not treatable…she does not recognize that she may need assist…”IT’S the REST of the cast” to her thier R only Friends totally under her controll or Enemies those she can’t. Kelly is very different treatable if she recognizes the need& accepts help/meds & trmt……if she neglects 2 can progress & can B dangerous 2 the individuals she believes R “after her”. Bravo must B aware by now how this could spin out of controll & they would B liable 4 anything untoward happening IMHO. Jill is just a spoilt, less intelligent, whiny, annoying b who sucks the air out of the room! Poor Bobby!

  42. Amber...Real Housewife says:

    Re: Jill and her 4 interns, I mean PR people…

    Knew a very rich old lady who was a real estate investor. A millionaire. She owned multi-fams, single fams and trailer park. She would always mention work or repairs made by the electrician, plumber, contractor, handyman, landscaper, gardener, janitor and maintenance man. All of the above was one person, a down and out member of the church who she never paid more than $20 dollars. She was unmasked, and shown to be an abusive cheap and evil bitch, when it was discovered that she was subletting “Melvin” out to other people and still only paying him $20. Upon discovery, she left the church, not because she was disgraced, but because she felt the congregation was jealous of her wealth. Sure.

    Melvin? His finances improved once he started charging market rate.

    Moral of the story? Jill Zarin is a $20 bitch.

    • dee says:

      I have to tell you I don’t think that is a fair assesement of our dear, much loved Jill. I don’t really know if she’s a $20 bitch. She was paying someone $25 an hour to delete unflattering posts about her on Facebook. But I agree with you in that she is a bitch.

    • dee says:

      Forgot to add, very happy for Melvin. Hope that your ex-fellow congregant rots in hell.

      • Robin says:

        There was a link posted here from Jill’s own mouth that said she would never pay $25 for someone to delete post’s from facebook.She said she would only pay $ min wage. 🙂

        I think that is what Amber was refering to.

        TC,Robin

  43. WindyCityWondering says:

    The reunion shows can’t come soon enough! The teams are on their respective couches! Andy promises the big questions will be asked. And we are being teased by two housewives leaving the party before it is over. SO put your thinking and/or predicting caps on and figure out who is number two (GingerZarin doesn’t count).
    We probably all think that Jill is one of the wives who walks out – so who is the other one? And what will trigger it?

    Kelly – possible – she’s done it before when uncomfortable with the situation.
    Ramona – not likely – she is renewed and can handle drama.
    Sonja – not likely – she is pretty unflappable as well.
    Alex – possible – she’s done it before but now she has a mouth.
    LuAnne – we can only wish dahlings – she will sit tight to police the others.
    Bethenny – possible – she took enough abuse this season and has new priorities.

    • Annie1033 says:

      I thought this was answered already….? I saw a clip – Andy played it on WWHL in which Kelly is trying to…..well, just talk (YUCK!!!) and Ramona gets up and says “I just need to get some air…I’m hot…” or something like that and gets up and then comes right back.
      Totally don’t blame her obviously.

      Anyway, I think it’s Jill and Ramona except Ramona we know for certain, returns right away. Unless it’s yet another person they’re talking about!

      • viki55 says:

        Oh ya, didn’t Kelly Ripa say comment with Andy something about every woman needing to air out their “ladie” parts? Or something like that.

        • Annie1033 says:

          Yes! Exactly.

          • anniieee says:

            Her age= hot flash in the pookie parts.. notice the dress swishing…

            • Annie1033 says:

              HA!
              That AND the fact that I just think if (and this is one of the reasons why I love Ramona….) she had to listen to Kelly’s nonsensical ass-hattery ONE MORE SECOND, she was gonna hot-flash all over that dumb HO-BAG (see what I did there?)
              Ramona has a Bullshit Threshold and she or he who crosses it must prepare themselves!!

    • Robin says:

      Kelley walks out to get another hit from the ole pipe,walks back in and Ramona needs to get up immediately for air because she thinks Mrs.Wrinkles showed up to Watch What Happens and took a pee.

  44. Obsessed with RH says:

    Hi all!

    I am a first time commenter but long time follower. I have to say Lynn, this blog is amazing and is something I look forward to each day. It’s so refreshing to find a website where opinions of all kind can be aired without censorship like the love-fest at Bravo. That being said, I too have disliked (lets be honest, hated) Jill Zarin since season 1. She was transparent from day one with her nosy-ness, gossip-hounding, busy-body self. I certainly don’t need to get into the laundry list of obnoxious qualities about that woman but point is I can’t stand the sound of her voice and her pompous self-righteous nature. I’m only hoping that she is a passing fad and that eventually people will tire of this drain on society (although what will I talk about then!). Kelly infuriates me almost as much as Jill does and makes me want to run through the streets of Manhattan, find her jogging in traffic and push her in front of a taxi cab. I have always found Bethenny to be incredibly funny, HONEST, sweet, and a good person. I am definitely Team BRAS.

    Onto New Jersey. I have to express my extreme loathing for Teresa. As an Italian woman (100%, family born and raised in Italy), she is a giant ignoramus with regards to anything in Italian culture. One of her many idiotic comments included the blanket statement that “all old school Italians believe that if you have your period you can’t make tomatoes, you’ll spoil the sauce.” Actually, that’s a complete and utter fabrication. As someone who has made tomato sauce from scratch (same method they used on tv) her entire life and whose family has done it for generations, that is a farce. IF ANYTHING, maybe the town where her troll family came from believes that, but as always, that brilliant ape generalized and made Italians look like superstitious morons. I’m convinced that her hair is growing forward so that hopefully one day her entire face will be covered by her hair and I won’t have to hear that horrific voice b/c she’ll have choked on that mane of overprocessed gelled hair. This despicable behavior with the bankruptcy is the worst of it all. The fact that this woman puts the onus of her behavior on anything and everything besides her OWN ridiculous spending and her OWN inability to manage money is disgraceful. And then she says it’s a fresh start? How DARE YOU? People in this country are legitimiatelly struggling day to day to make their mortgage payments and don’t spend a PENNY excess and yet this one just racks it up and wipes it clean so she can buy more pieces of sh*t dishes, HEINOUS clothes and more self-tanner and lip liner so she can outline her lips like The Joker. She hides behind this facade that she is such an amazing mother to those spoiled brats (i.e., the behavior in the store when her daughters ransacked the store and never ONCE did Teresa tell her daughters to clean up the mess but left it to a store employees). She should shut her big mouth and focus on paying HER bills so that a hardworking tax payer like myself does not have to foot the bill for her tasteless shopping sprees and her GAW-DEEEEE house/furniture as well as the acting/karate/guitar and other lessons for her talentless brood.

    Danielle, oh Danielle….hot mess is all I can say about that one. Kelly is one flew over the cuckoo’s nest…Danielle is about 75….

    Finally, I find Ashley’s behavior reprehensible and Caroline’s “justification” for her behavior even worse. Ashley needs to stop hiding behind her age as the reason for her actions because I was more mature when I was a fetus than this girl will ever be. She knows exactly what she is doing and I’m sorry but she needs to get a job, or go to college and make something of herself because living in her step -daddy’s extra house driving a range rover with petaled rims (what happened to the Jeep from last season?) and living off of her mother’s money is pathetic and doesn’t make her look any better. As far as Jacqueline is concerned, I have to disagree that she cannot control her daughter anymore….control the finances control her actions. I doubt if she were working 9-5 she’d have time for half the antics she has gotten herself into. I’m already sick of this girl and anticipate we’ll be hearing more from her…ugh.

    I apologize for the rant but I’ve been holding it in for a long time!!

    • Annie1033 says:

      No way! Don’t apologize, that was awesome! 🙂

    • Amber...Real Housewife says:

      Your rant was amazing – I was wondering when the Italian ladies would dice up Teresa appropriately.

      • Obsessed with RH says:

        Not to mention her pathetic attempt at the Italian language is such a bastardization I have to put it on mute otherwise my ears bleed….what a disgrace.

        • dee says:

          Really? Oh how I wish I understood Italian so I could also make fun of the way she speaks.

          • Obsessed with RH says:

            I actually insulted the Italian language by calling what she speaks a version of Italian. It is gibberish. In all honesty its not even CLOSE to real Italian.

            Oh and another thing will someone PLEASE tell Jacqueline the word is supposeDLY not supposebly? Makes her look so so dumb.

            • dee says:

              You are so making me buy Rosetta Stone so I can learn Italian.
              Is her Italian anything similar to the time Peter Griffin (Family Guy) grew a moustache, went to a butcher and started talking in Italian to the Italian butcher, but was in fact gibberish? There was alot of “bippi-dee” “boo-beh-dee” and hand motions going on.

              • Obsessed with RH says:

                Yes!!! LOL that’s exactly what it sounds like. For example, when she was asking her father what he thought she was having (a boy or girl) I couldn’t even identify the words she was using to describe girl or boy. A baby girl is a “bambina,” or (bimba) baby boy is “bambino” (or bimbo) She said some word that had an r in it…

        • MAMAZ says:

          Obsessed – Welcome to the party! I’m from an Italian family and I never heard that you couldn’t make red sauce(we call it tomato gravy)during your period either. Ridiculous. I even called my mom and asked her. She said she had never heard that before and both her mother and mother in law are from Italy. I have mentioned before that my mother and aunts are all soft spoken, calm women. Theresa is BAD for Italians.

          • Obsessed with RH says:

            @MAMAZ We call it gravy too!!! I just thought it might confuse people! And my mother/aunts/cousins are all soft spoken calm women who don’t brag about ANYTHING they have, to the contrary they are so tight lipped about the things they have! Perhaps Teresa should go to Italy for a refresher course on how real Italians behave, oh but wait, that would require her to see that her own behavior is incorrect, oops, my bad, she can’t see anything since her hairline just grew past her eyelids and sealed them shut.

            • MAMAZ says:

              Ansd she ought to take her children. Five minutes in a traditional Italian home and they would be cleaning the house, cooking meals and saying yes maam, no maam, please and thank you.

          • dee says:

            Could it possibly be because of regional superstitions and that’s why your family has never heard of such nonsense?

            • MAMAZ says:

              Yes, that is very possible but in this day and age only the most ignorant people would pass on on such a stupid idea.

              • anniieee says:

                mamaz – you just answered your own comment “only ignorant people would pass on such a stupid idea” totally……….

            • Obsessed with RH says:

              Yes and that’s what I had said, that I didn’t have a problem with her saying that statement if it was true for HER family, but for her to generalize and say ALL old school italians is what bothered me.

              • Obsessed with RH says:

                I mean that’s what I meant (not said) by saying that she made a blanket statement. I should have specified more. My bad. Look at this, I waited all this time to post, I do, and now I can’t stop posting!

              • dee says:

                So she seems to be the type that “if it’s true for me, then it’s true for all us Italians”.
                I could never be so ignorant and think like that of people of my ethnic heritage. But then again I’m not Teresa “Greedy Hairline” Guidice.

    • MorgaineSwann says:

      Ashley has her own money from appearing on the show. That’s why Jac can’t affect her by cutting the purse stings.

      • Obsessed with RH says:

        True, but then perhaps she can make Ashley pay rent for living in her husband’s father’s home for free. I doubt that all of Ashley’s living expenses come from her Bravo salary but that was a good point. Thanks Morgaine!

      • Squirrels says:

        Woe is Ashley if the show dies. She may have to go back home…. or Heaven help her; get a jawwwb.

        • Obsessed with RH says:

    • Nancyusa says:

      Outstanding!!

    • Kelly Looks Smelly says:

      I’m really glad we have an ~authentic~ Italian to tell the truth about T’s rediculous behavior.

      I used to chalk T up as simply a space case ala Lynn Curtin from the OC series. Annoying but badically harmless, ya know? After all this BS with the table flipping, attacking Bethenney for having a baby nurse, and NOW filing for Bankruptcy (hippocrite, much? Lol) I think she is slightly more calculated than your run of the mill space case.

      I think she thinks of herself as the next JZ (gawd help us!) and is acting accordingly picking fights, etc, without much forethought as to who she is pissing off in the process. Just proves T really is the dumbest housewife.

      • Obsessed with RH says:

        I used to feel the same way about Teresa. I found her annoying but basically harmless but as time has gone on I have seen her true colors come forth. I don’t mean to generalize and speak for all Italians by any of my statements, however, I speak from an Italian background which is based IN the country of Italy. I obviously am aware that regionally things differ as does the language but what frustrates me is when people like Teresa make these sweeping generalizations about Italians and Italian culture when in fact she isn’t Italian-American, she’s AMERICAN-Italian (my distinction). She was not born in Italy, she was not raised in Italy and yet she makes these ridiculous comments and acts like she is the guru in all things Italian (that cookbook fyi is not anything new, just ask any Italian woman and they can give you every recipe in there without even looking), and then the nonsense with those children, yuck, I cannot wait to see the men that get suckered into marrying those spoiled brats.

        My biggest issue with Teresa is her MOUTH similar to Jill. Just eat a slice of humble pie ladies. BE QUIET, LISTEN to what others say. Teresa sitting there and not listening to the voice coach regarding Gia’s accent was just ignorance at its finest. Teresa is the “Italian” Jill. They have NO concept of self-reflection.

    • PFinFL says:

  47. katiecoo says:

    So I guess Jill doesn’t subscribe to the “living well is the best revenge” adage. She prefers the “revenge is the best revenge” motto.

    But who will she and her team of PR people/lawyers choose to sue? Amazon.com? Maybe this will be her “hook” to try and stay on the show next season.

      What frustrates me is that Bobby puts up with it. Very odd.

        Ohyeah, just watched an old episode where he bought her the Mercedes SUV she wanted for her bd. Then proceeded to throw a temper tantrum over her Iphone not plugging in immediately or easily or some such sh*t. Then she started in with the “I’m not haaaaapy. Not haaaaaapy” (rollmyeyes) to which he said “I’ll get you a different car, I’ll drive this one”

        He’s going to purchase her a whole new car because she can’t in the first 5 min. figure out how to plug in her I-phone. Look up “henpecked” in the dictionary and…poof, there’s Bobby Zarin.

            I was going to say the same thing. I know I saw that at the villa on VI.
            Kelly doesn’t have an independent thought of her own, she copies everything and everyone. Just like when she was making those video’s making some concoction or other. Bethanny has a work out cd so then all of a sudden Kelly says she has one too. I’ve noticed other things too but they don’t come to mind right now. So it doesn’t really surprise me that she went out and bought that fish bowl.

    @viki55 & pat~ thanks for the info on the latkas…potato pancakes
    I’m going to google them and see how to make them. 🙂

    • viki55 says:

      They are great just made…..they don’t work well as leftovers…..at all!

      • dee says:

        As I found out when I made my first batch.

        • viki55 says:

          Don’t you think Jill had to know they would taste like crap leftover? Poor Ginger!

        • LefttheBuilding says:

          My family came from Ark. (I’m from MO) and they have a similar version of these. Here they’re just called potato cakes, made with leftover mashed potatoes with an egg and flour, then fry them in oil. This recipe is “old school”, been around for ages. They make great side dishes.
          I know, I know…this ages me!! LOL

    • dee says:

      I think you mean viki55 and dee (that’s me). Just to let you know those pancakes also come in a box (just like a regular pancake mix). Forgot how they’re made because I prefer to make them from scratch.

    • Robin says:

      The container that Jill put the latke’s in to give B is exactly the same container that I get my chinese take out in.I save them to put leftover’s in.They are THE SAME! lol

  50. Obsessed with RH says:

    Can someone tell me who the hell tells Jill that her hair looks good like that and who dresses her because her outfit at the reunion looks like something that I’d see on Coffee Talk with Linda Richmond….(Mike Myers/SNL). If she pays someone to make her look like that she needs to just light that money on fire because it’d be a better use for it.

    • Annie1033 says:

      ….A couple of gay men who most likely are underpaid and reeeeeaaaaaallyyyyy hate her…..Just a guess. ;>

      And if she says, “Excuse me. I’m getting a little verklempt”, in that Bronx Jewish mother voice, during the reunion, I would die.

        @dee

        I just laughed out loud so hard that my tea cup yorkie just fell off my lap. Every time she says “BAAHHHHBBYYY” it reminds me of Linda Richmond saying “BAHHHHBRA.” Actually, Jill also reminds me of Sylvia (Fran’s mother) from the Nanny….

    Ashley tweet:

    Little does she know she’s a mini Danielle in the making.

    Did anyone get one of these today?

    Kelly K. Bensimon (kikilet) is now following your tweets on Twitter.

    A little information about Kelly K. Bensimon:
    22988 followers
    5059 tweets
    following 476 people

    Funny thing is that I don’t even follow her, I posted a few tweets last night about the NJ bunch but I’m hardly ever there. I have to say that it was really funny to find that in my inbox. I didn’t even realize that my Twitter was connected to my email (duh).

    • dee says:

      So what’s the protocol for celebrities with Twitter? As I’m not a twitterer I don’t know what terminology is used on that site. Are celebrities (real or otherwise) supposed to follow/add or are they supposed to wait for somebody else to follow/add them? Is there even an unwritten rule about that?
      Personally, if I were known, I would wait for somebody to ask me to let them follow me on Twitter. Not the other way around.

    • Obsessed with RH says:

      I feel like giving her her own blog just reinforces her stupid behavior, i.e., the nonsense she pulled with Christine on Twitter. Sure, lets give this spoiled brat who is completely out of touch with reality ANOTHER platform to act like an idiot…just my opinion…

      • boston02127 says:

        @Obsessed with RH~~Well said.

      • Marie Laveau says:

        I agree. I hope she’s not going to be a permanent blogger. She’s just as snotty and disrespectful in her blog as she is on the television episodes. The only RH “kids” that get on my nerves more than Ashley are Lynn Curtin’s (RHOOC) daughters. Jacqueline seems like a sweet woman, but she and her husband are totally enabling Ashley’s bad behavior.

        I sometimes wonder if Bravo is “punking” all of us. Like…are these idiots(on these shows) for REAL? Don’t get me wrong. There are some sane people on these shows, but they are far outnumbered by the fruit loops.

        • viki55 says:

          I totally agree with the “punked” part. I think everyone of these shows will only get worse. With OC & NY we at least has one season where people seemed real. Not any more.

    • MAMAZ says:

      Good God what’s next, Gia getting a blog? I read the first couple of lines and that was enough for me.

      • viki55 says:

        But ya know, I kept on reading and it was like reading Danielle’s blog. The ages seemed the same. I think there is real trouble coming. I don’t see a season 3 of this crap thats for sure.

      • Marie Laveau says:

        LOL. Gia with a blog. Funny. If they paid people to blog, I’m sure Teresa would have all four of those hellions (including Audriana, somehow. I know she’s just a baby, but, she seems to be advanced, seeing as how she’s already wearing heels — well, she was wearing them in In Touch magazine recently, leopard-print, no less. Shocker, I know!) typing away! That might not be a bad idea considering the fact that even their own firstborn children — if there’s any justice — will be owed to the I.R.S. and creditors thanks to the lousy money mismanagement of their parents, Teresa and Joe. Let’s correct the “sins of the Father” and start each of those kids off early with a job….like blogging.

        LOL

  56. boston02127 says:

    Ashley’s Blog~~”defending the family” LOL! Actually it’s not her family it’s her mothers husband. She’s 18 and pretty much not adoptable.
    She’s so defensive that it’s comical. All of them are so good at defending everything they could probably defend someone that burned down an orphanage on Christmas day and make it seem okay.

  57. kats2 says:

    This is Ashley’s job or any chance of any kind of job. The joke is the part about her defending her family when she has no respect for her mother. Nice try

    • boston02127 says:

      @kats2~~good point.

    • dee says:

      Excellent point. But there are many people who are the type to disrespect, fight Iverbally/physically) and hate their family members. But, God forbid, some stranger comes and messes with one of their own, it’s on. Oh man, is it on. And Ashley more than likely falls into that category.

  58. lillybee says:

    I wonder if Brad is responsible for Jill’s look at the reunion.

    • Snarkapalooza says:

      Jill looked a lot better when Brad did her makeup. Her current look with the daytime smoky eye and false eyelashes are harsh and aging.

      As for her reunion look, it’s 1 part tranny, 2 parts styled by Brandi from the 1st floor kiosk at the Cherry Hill Mall, next to Lady Foot Locker.

  59. shantygal says:

    I cannot wait to see Jizz skate…er, storm off the set on Thurs. Wonder if she’ll do the patented “Zarin Spaltt”. Would that not be sweet, sweet justice?

  60. MorgaineSwann says:

    I can’t believe that gave Ashley a blog when she has already proven that she cannot handle a FaceBook page. Her mother shouldn’t have allowed this.

    I am pretty disgusted with Ashley, but I don’t feel it’s appropriate to compare her to Danielle. Ashley is spoiled, rude and yes, her “hate” page was just that, hateful, but she shows no signs of mental illness, just poor judgment.

    Danielle is mentally ill and very dangerous. I hate that she pressed charges so Ashley has a record now, and if I were Jacqueline, I’d hate Danielle just as much as she does now. They ned to learn not to engage Danielle. She will always take things to a dangerous extreme – it’s whom she is.

    • kats2 says:

      IMO Ashley is dangerous (mostly to herself) and for her age she is showing major signs of being on the wrong track. She should not be attacking Danielle or anyone else on a public forum. Non of them should be.

      If Danielle was so dangerous they wouldn’t be meeting her in person to tell her they no longer want anything to do with her, and they all wouldn’t be trashing and poking at her all the time. They would ignore her! BUT they can’t because Daniele is their meal ticket on this show, they have nothing else to bring the drama, so here we are with another season all about hating Daniele.

      If you play with a pitbull you’re putting yourself at risk and not that anyone deserves to get hurt. . . . how else will this end? They are just as much to blame.

      • anutha hata says:

        WTH? On last night’s episode Ashley was sitting at Caroline’s table and they ALL swore to never mention Danielle again, then Ashley writes an entire blog about her?
        I really would like to know if they get an extra stipend to do blogs?

    • boston02127 says:

      @MorgaineSwann~I’m quite sure I heard Jacqueline say Danielle decided not to press charges against Ashley.

        She was convicted. The kid has an assault conviction now thanks to Danielle. The judge went as easy on her as he could, but she did pull out her hair extensions so he had to find her guilty.

  64. HD says:

    Grown or not, if I was her mother she would not be blogging. Once you put it out there you subject yourself to so many things and she cannot handle that. She is an adult in age only. We can all see she is not mature enough to handle the criticism that comes with being on front street. Even grown woman (i.e. Jill and Kelly) have broken down with the backlash from a reality show. If I was her I would leave it alone. The heat will be coming…

    • Sue says:

      Unfortunately, Ashley is not going to listen to her mother. We’ve seen the last two years that Ashley tunes Jacqueline out. The biggest problem is that J and Chris enable this girl and her bad behavior. Take away her car. Stop paying her insurance. Don’t give her money. It is obvious that Ashley has never had any consequences. As much as I’d love for Jacqueline to make Ashley stop her Facebook and tweets, the girl is now 19 and let her pay for her mistakes…even it means 5-10 in some jail.

  65. RileyKitty says:

    @Kat- I’m “home” if you want to come over for a bit LOL

  66. HD says:

    Also, I don’t think it is fair to Danielle. Ashley can say whatever she wants and although she is “grown” Danielle will look like an ass for talking about someone’s child.

  69. RileyKitty says:

    I am no Danielle fan by any means but Ashley crossed a line in my book. Her mom & bf told her to cool it & she just sat there with a smug look on her face stating she wanted people to hate Danielle. Danielle is crazy she can get people to hate her all on her own, she needs no help from Ashley.

    • morning says:

      which is maybe why you keep your children, especially 18 year olds, off t.v.

    • RileyKitty says:

      AMEN Morning- There isn’t enough money in the world for me to expose my kid on TV… Once Ashley crossed that line with Danielle it became Jac’s fault. I know Ashley is over 18 but Jac should have stepped away from the show thereby no longer giving Ashley the ability to spout her nonsense on TV. No Jac on RHoNJ, no Ashley. Jac needs to speak to Tammy Knickerbocker about knowing when it is best to protect your kids by walking away

    so can’t wait for thurs nite…just from the preview clip of jill i already know that

    I HATE JILL ZARIN MORE AND MORE.

  73. Capiche says:

    Just catching up on all the Real Housewives drama…It’s so funny that I don’t even have to go anywhere else. All the latest happenings can be found right here!

    So I read that Ashley has a blog on Bravo’s website? For the love of God, why? I did click on it, read like the first sentence and instantly lost brain cells. I couldn’t go on. I have to maintain some sort of dignity! If someone here wants to summarize what she said, I’ll read it. I’m sorry when Bravo does something as idiotic as giving this little brat a blog, I’m not going to reward them anymore by visiting it. I barely made it through Dina’s blog last night.

    Now Jill is again complaining about being harrassed by a satire twitter page that bears her dog’s name. Would I have written this sentence five, two years ago? I think not. What more is there to say about Jill? As Ramona says…(can you tell she’s my favorite housewife?)…she wants to get it, but she just can’t. Jill, I know you and your people read this blog so listen up: Ignore shit like that and us. If I were you, I won’t even give commenters on an I HATE JILL ZARIN blog the time of day. Yes, Jill. I am giving you permission to ignore me. This is why the blog is still going strong. I came here after I stumbled upon your Amazongate nonsense, stayed for the crazy happenings that was going on in the Virgin Islands (where I was born; everyone go visit!) and I’m still here because you keep doing crazy stuff that makes us wonder if everything is running smoothly upstairs. You are attacking fans of the real housewives. Whether we like you or not, we are the reason there is a show to begin with. Get over yourself and perhaps we will too. If you don’t want me to discuss you, stay off my damn TV!

    Teresa. Sigh. Someone posted a link of a picture with her in a turban. Honestly, it scared me. If you’re going to go into debt for clothes and accessories, make sure they are flattering! On a serious note, I actually wanted to buy her cookbook but can’t bring myself to do it now. I wonder if the bankruptcy news will affect her sales. Even while I never liked her, it did get good reviews on Amazon and I have Rachel Ray cookbooks and I can’t stand her. Oh well, you just lost $20 bucks that could have gone a long way in paying off your newest kid!

    Lynn, when the RHONY is over are you gonna blog any other Bravo shows? I am making a pitch for Top Chef. It could seem a little highbrow, but it does have some drama. Just throwing it out there.

    • otaypanky says:

      i know…she just won’t shut up. she just won’t go away. can’t stand this poor excuse for a human being.
      can’t stand the kvetching!
      shut up already jill.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      Yes! First will be Bethenny’s show but I also love Top Chef -the brothers were so amazing last year, I don’t know how they are going to top the talent, but yes, I’ll be blogging most all of Bravo’s shows….Thanks!

      • Capiche says:

        Yes, the brothers were amazing, but honestly I wanted Kevin (?) to win – not sure about the name but he was the one with the beard. And Robin! How could you ever forget Robin? Was she Top Chef’s version of Jill? I still don’t know how she got on the show or lasted that long!

    I had never seen these before (where have I BEEN?), sorry there are so many. I thought they were interesting, especially since they were done prior to this season.

    I hope that TG’s kids come out of this humbled and stronger.

  78. Squirrels says:

    Ok, just watched a scene from episode #1, season #3. Jill interprets Mario’s voicemail to Lulu before Lulu can even begin to express herself. Jill jumps all over the, “bring it on bitch,” mantra she obviously learned by watching the RHWOA. If Lulu goes to the party with an olive branch, Jill would lose her grip and we know THAT can’t happen.

    My fav part of that scene is Ramona’s response to Lulu’s apology demand, “She’s been a slut the whole time she was married, so let’s cut the bullshit”. I think at that moment Ramona was being real in earnest. Hard to believe believe she knew Lulu was listening in. All proving – yet again – JillZaaaarinnnnn suks. tyvm.

  79. Squirrels says:

    OH… not to mention, Lulu’s face went from smirking to…. what the hell? She was blindsided. It was fun.

    • HD says:

      LOL! That was one of my favorite moments as Luann tries to save face, “how dare she mention my marriage.” Well not really your marriage, Luann but that fact that you are sleeping your way across New York City. LOL! I sooooooooooo wish that would come out on the reunion show but you know Luann wouldn’t stand for that.

      • error 404 says:

        I’m actually on Lulu’s side this time.

        So, the deLeseps had an open marriage. So what. Not for me, but I’m not gonna tell other people how and when they can have sex. That’s what Teresa G’s for!

        I get Ramona’s point, Lulu’s a big fake, but really, there’s plenty of other ways to prove it. Calling other women slutty in public is never cool IMO.

        • HD says:

          Was she in public or did Ramona think she was having a private phone call with Jill that Jill put on speaker phone? Even though Ramona may have known these calls go to speaker phone did Ramona know Luann was there?

          I understand people have open marriages but I never got the impression that holier than thou Countess (at the time) was in one of those relationships. To me, IMO, always loved to throw her marriage around in front of people.

  83. desertgal66 says:

    There are a lot of people who wrote very vindictive, nasty things about my book on Amazon, which were very hurtful.

    See, there she goes again. Just because people didn’t like the book doesn’t make them vindictive. And, yes, a lot of people were sickened by the whole Susan Saunders thing. Many of us, if we wrote a book of any kind, would prefer it to be judged on its own merits. We certainly wouldn’t get on Amazon and write fake reviews to promote it, or attack those who didn’t like it.

    They accused me of things that aren’t true, but based on my legal advice and some pending lawsuits, I can’t respond

    Things that aren’t true? Jill IS Susan Saunders. It’s been proven beyond a doubt. I’d have far more respect for her if she’d own it and apologize for it. But, this is classic Jill: “If I say it isn’t true enough times, I can convince myself that I am the victim.”

    Pending lawsuits? Yeah, right. Is she suing Susan Saunders?

    And people, they damaged my book and my reputation unknowingly, maliciously, saying things I did, that I didn’t do…

    See above. She did far more damage to her book sales and her reputation than any of us could ever do.

    Bethenny tried to explain to her that she needs to take responsibility for her own behavior, and the collateral damage it causes. But, again, classic Jill: blame everyone else and label them as toxic. Thing is, Jill, if you “rid your life of the toxic people”, then you’d better plan on being very lonely.

    I have to wait my time until I handle that, but the truth is that people who wrote things on Amazon used it as a blog… Here’s what I think. There’s another site called television.pity, which is where all these people will go and comment on shows, and they shut it down because it got so hostile. And they had to find a place to talk, and they couldn’t do it on Bravo-TV, because there’s no interaction.

    They tried to do it on Facebook, but I can block, and you can block, and other characters can block; so they went on my Amazon where it became like a free for all, where people wrote negative, horrible things.

    Yeah, it’s called “freedom of speech”, Jill, and the Constitution grants us that right. We all know that the “negative, horrible things” were just all those “toxic” people disagreeing with you.

    People on Amazon are certainly allowed to make comments, as long as they comply with Amazon’s rules of order. She’s just pissed she couldn’t turn those comments off.

    (Some) people wrote beautiful reviews – it was average for that kind of book. We got like 35 five-star reviews

    Well, she would know, since she and her sycophants wrote most of them.

    which is what any average book would normally get. Nobody gets like 150 one-star reviews – those people never read the book

    Oh, bullshit.

    People accuse me of saying things – like that’s not true… If you just want to write nasty things on my character because of the TV show and how I was edited, well, shame on you… and anti-Semitic attacks saying is Jill good or bad for the Jews – how anti-Semetic to say that.

    Now, this is curious. Jill is implying that she isn’t Susan Saunders-yet she uses “anti Semitic” in the same way that Susan Saunders did.

    And how is calling Jill “good for the Jews” an anti-Semitic comment, anyway?

    But like I say – I will have my day.

    Right. Uh-huh. WhatEVER.

    The laughable part to all of this, JILL, is all those people you refer to as haters? They also fall under another label – viewers. Without them, you’re just the nasty wife of a fabric store owner.

    http://thestir.cafemom.com/entertainment/104586/ny_housewife_jill_zarin_harassed?result=comment_added&success=1#comments

    For weeks now I’ve watched LynnnChicago and the followers of her I Hate Jill Zarin blog criticize Jill Zarin and the other howives for deleting neg. comments from facebook and blocking people on twitter plus relentlessly ridiculing Jill for claiming she’s being harassed.

    Today Lynn officially jumped the shark and landed in Kellyland when she began deleting critical comments by several, blocked me from posting at all and emailed another poster claiming she had been harassed, by me.

    What Lynn sees as a harassment was my saying that if she deleted my comments I would post them elsewhere.

    The following is the post that led to my banishment.

    TO LYNN

    URGENT TECHNICAL PROBLEM

    A handful of posts are missing from the first June 8th thread.

    I know how critical you have been of Jill Zarin for deleting posts that she was “Not Happpy” about. In fact you and the minions have ragged on her relentlessly for doing so. Therefore I am going to give you the benefit of the doubt that it is merely a coincidence that only posts missing appear to be those that are either critical of you and/or supportive of me.

    Please alert wordpress immediately of this problem, or if I am being naive and it is not a coincidence then I will assume that the body snatching is close to being complete and you will be blowing your husband for jewelry tonight and shilling your book on the moral and ethical evils of flagrant hypocrisy tomorrow.

          Whoever is using user names on other blogs to cause trouble for Jenni, Cleo, and Elise is really only causing problems for our host Lynn….it’s Lynn’s name that’s being dragged through the mud.

      • Rusty says:

        I think it’s Cleo’s mom. She DID get very beat up here. Please keep in mind . . . no attacking and I can have my opinion even if it’s not the same as yours. I feel she was very sincere in her posts here. There was WAY too much lynch-mobbing as well as accusations of being a troll if the poster didn’t agree with someone else. Way too many transparent messages from the thug squad. “Gum? You reading me?” It wasn’t fun at all and I’m glad to see it’s stopped and hope it continues to stay that way. Cleo’s Mommy got caught in the crossfires and made so many good and valid comments. We lost a lot of good posters. Onward and upward.

      The fact that she is calling people sick for finding the ginger twitter account hysterical show this woman has a humor deficit. Seems her daughter does also.

        Y’know, if I were one of those 4 “media consultants” Jill hired, I’d tell her to STAAAAWWWWP. Get off tv. Get off the blogs. Get off Twitter. Get off her own web site.

        Any sane “consultant” would view Jill in all these places and see how her appearances demonstrate her selfishness, narcissism, rotten “manners,” donkey-braying and general vile self.

        And that’s just to the “general public.”

        To us, it’s all a gift.

  93. dumberries says:

    Hi all, this is my first post, but I’ve been reading along for the last week or so. The Zarin-related comments, links and even some of the user names having me smiling away. Right on the money. Zarin really is a piece of work. I completely agree that she is really biting the hand that feeds her by complaining about the “haters”. Because of her own behavior, haters are justly all she has right now and that’s what’s keeping her relevant in any way. The strong reaction from the online community of Bravo viewers – albeit negative – will be the only reason her contract will get renewed. As much as I despised her jealousy, lies, and vindictiveness this year, I didn’t think she was really a moron until she started complaining and waging war against the RHNYC viewers who are passionate enough to voice an opinion. Very stupid woman.

    • A former Jill fan says:

      Hi dumberries! Like your name! 🙂 You said it! jill has proven herself over and over how moronic she is. She can’t handle negative press and goes ballistic. That only hurts her image even more.

  94. cusi77 says:

    Well said dumberries!

    We are here because Bravo did not allow their viewers to express their opinions, when never published.

    We found something much better! THANK YOU BRAVO!

  95. cusi77 says:

    @ Otay_ You are right! I once saw a Bethenny’s photo in a wedding dress!

    • A former Jill fan says:

      Wow! What an uplifting article! Bethenny used to live in a place of fear and learned to over come that! How encouraging a message! I used to do that too. Growing older and really experiencing the ups and downs of life made me less fearful. A whole lot less.

      Thank you Kook for posting that link! 🙂

      I’ve lived my entire life acting out of fear. Fear of abandonment, fear of failure, fear of success, you name it. When my husband annunced he wanted a divorce two days ago, all I felt was relieved.

      Bless her heart! Sometimes you have to go through a lot NOT to be fearful when the next thing steps up to meet you. Just put your head down and start tackling it! Or maybe hold your head up high…

      Well, I said goodnight to ice probably well over an hour ago, I believe. LOL! It’s hard not to shut down right away!

      Good night all!

  96. chismosa says:

    to Obsessed with RH- i love your first comment, i agree completely; i pointed out the whole Ashley Land Rover/ Jeep from last season issue- I doubt the LR is Blockbuster Derek’s on his salary.
    I really cannot tolerate Ashley & her behavior.
    I also concur completely with you on the whole generalization of “Italian” behavior. I hate how people generalize and then say things because ‘all Italians’ or ‘Irish’ do this or do that. PS i cannot STAND when people mispronounce things like MOZARELLA and say MUTZARELLLL. Um, are you Italian? There are these things called VOWELS on lots of Italian words. Try using them.
    I get the generalization a lot on my Greek side, so it pains me a lot. But I ADORE Italian and that language so to see it massacred by the tri-state accent (and i come from the tri-state so i can knock it) just kills me.

    • MorgaineSwann says:

      What about when Italians say “mutzarell” or “pro-zhoot” instead of the whole word? A lost of Italians I’ve known in Philly used those pronunciations.

      • chismosa says:

        yeah i hate that. That is not proper Italian. No offense to anyone though. It’s just a word being blatantly mispronounced, one of my pet peeves.
        But again, those are probably 5th or 6th generation Italian-Americans. So it’s more of an ‘Americanization’ of it.

        • Obsessed with RH says:

          @Chimosa,

          Thanks! And thank you for bringing up my BIGGEST pet peeve about the bastardization of the Italian language….Muhhzzzzaarelll….OMG one doesn’t have to be a genius to see the word is spelled MozzarellA. There’s an A on the end of the word people! I do know that culturally in the tri-state area people do pronounce it Muhzzarell and proshoot (prosciutto) and as my in laws say, “managot” (good god that is the worst. its Manicotti). It is a result of generations that have been removed from the country of Italy and the language in its truest form and just like a game of telephone, the original word ends up completely garbled at the end. So SO frustrating.

          • Dana Gordon says:

            Regarding the “garbled” pronunciation. It’s not, actually. The Southern Italian pronunication of familiar words we hear on RHONJ (and The Sopranos) is simply a distinct dialect. The more “standard” pronunication became standard just because it was written and disseminated far more globally than the Southern version.

            Luinguistics scholars do not view the Southern Italian pronunciations as “wrong.” They are merely Southern Italian local. No one would use another region’s pronunication of beloved food, when cooking in their own kitchen.

          • Lolo says:

            So is Giada DeLaurentis pronouncing spaghetti (spa-geeee-teee) correctly?!

            • chismosa says:

              I think I disagree with Dana Gordon, no offense. I do not think there is a dialect issue there. I know in Spanish we have the same thing, especially when dealing with mother-country spain and their odd pronounciations vs. the colonized countries’ pronounciation.
              I think in true true Italian, the vowels come out, regional or not. Sorry.
              My opinion though…

  97. chismosa says:

    i love the fishbowl from the V. Isles- i can’t believe it’s from BB& B AND that Kelly went out to buy one after being on the V. isles. I guess she wants a reminder.

    ~~to Obsessed with RH: i love your comments about Teresa’s hairline, her Italian-issues, and Jill’s hair and outfit from the reunion! You think just like me….

    I really do NOT understand why Jill fancies herself looking best with tons of faux Jessica-Simpson collection extensions? She should keep her hair short, I am sorry i know it’s the ‘tradition’ that older women keep their hair short and you don’t necessarily need to abide by those rules, but how RIDICULOUS did Jill look all season long, esp at the confessionals with the 1989 blue Gap turtleneck and the fake hair down to her boobs?

    ps- if anyone knows when they rerun season 2 of HW, please ADVISE!! i am dying to watch it. You can buy season 1 on dvd now.

    • Obsessed with RH says:

      I was looking through Teresa’s pictures on Bravo of when she was younger….she looks identical. Its like she’s permanently trapped in the 1980s at a Jungle themed party. I feel like her and Tracy/Olivia from Jerseylicious would get along great. What I don’t understand is that I know people from Franklin Lakes and they are the complete OPPOSITE of Teresa and have informed me that that town is NOTHING like Teresa, the Manzos, Jacqueline (who in my opinion could benefit from a breast reduction because it would make her look way less top heavy). They live in this bubble in 1983 where it looks like leopard print was vomited everywhere and a daily tanning salon visit was a necessity.

      Jill, oh Jill. What the hell was with that outfit she wore to the skating party? And i’m not talking about the skating outfit, I meant that black onesie with the gold belt, gold shackle bracelets and skinned alpaca on her back. I don’t understand how she thinks that that is/was/will ever be fashionable, but I guess the joke is on her because that heinous outfit probably cost her $20,000. Sorry BAHHHBBYYY you got suckered into spending your hard earned money on that thing.

      I think the reason Jill keeps her hair long is because it helps mask her double chin and big hair apparently makes you look thinner…just ask my MIL.

      • boston02127 says:

        @Obsessed with RH~~You’re so right on target with them all. Although with Jacquelin I’m not sure a reduction would help much. Her face is long and warped to one side. I think that makes her look big too.

        • Obsessed with RH says:

          @Boston

          That’s actually very true. She does have an unfortunate shaped face and she has to stop with the obvious lip injections. She can barely move her mouth her lips are so plumped. Bigger isn’t always better Jac.

          • chismosa says:

            i agree, as always with everything you said above!

            I think Jacqueline, for being a former cosmetologist (?) – has AWFUL taste in makeup for herself, and could also use a new haircut/ style/ layers, and highlights, or tone it down.
            Agreed about the top heavy; her body is odd to me, just like Caroline’s.
            Dina and Danielle have normal bodies.

    • Nancyusa says:

      unbelievable

      from Jill options for a posting about Jill with photos…

      A few different angles to take on it:

      1) After a season full of drama and a weekend of harassment thanks to an anonymous posting of her address all over the internet, Jill Zarin sought some retail therapy with her daughter Ally yesterday…..

      2) … with her daughter Ally. The reality TV star had been receiving threatening mail to her home the last few days after her address was anonymously posted on the internet ….

      3) ….While shopping, the reality TV starlet was overheard talking about her recent college reunion and how happy she is to have a break from the drama that occurred…

      • jb8 says:

        Did you notice in the comments someone observed that for Bawby she shops discount and for herself she shops uptown. Bawby’s money and he gets discount…

    • kokuanani says:

      This is hysterical.

      The best thing about it is the “press release” that shows just how those “4 fabulous media consultants” are out there pimping the “story” of Jill.

      What’s Jill paying them in? “Gum berries?” ‘Cause that’s what their effort is worth.

      How dare she distort all this? She is doing this, in addition to the reunions airing now, where we’ll see her so distraught all ==== to have people really root for her to be back next season.
      How DARE she distort the truth of anything? This is classic Jill and i hope people see it for what it is.
      She is a basic Page 6 joke, luckily. so i hope readers are not so dumb about it.

      • A former Jill fan says:

        Jill always distorts the truth through words or actions–we’ve seen and heard her do so.

        What it will do is make people hate her even more. She’s such an idiot to think anybody would believe her.

      HOLY SHITBALLS.

      Lyyyyyyynnn!!!!! Somebody get Lynn!!!!

    • Shadowsnomore says:

      One thing stood out in this article- “WE think these people are friends with another housewife”. Is this trying to infer that Alex and Lynn are working together to threaten, harass and make Jill look bad? Just because Lynn hosted a reception for A&S over the weekend? Boy, does this REEK of a nasty PR ploy. Look at timing, craziness on this site yesterday, the reception, the accusations……..They are definitely trolling this site. Otherwise how would they have known about sympathy cards being suggested here?

    • I Can't Stand The Toxicity says:

      So, Jill thinks “these people” who sent her the sympathy cards are friends with another housewife. Who is she blaming this time, Alex or Bethenny? lol

    • Sue says:

      And people say Kelly is paranoid???? Now she is just spouting false information. So there is now the details of sympathy cards and another housewife is part of this??? If this was something the authorities would already be questioning people. Jill must have an army of people going to every blog site that mentions her name.

      I REALLY liked Jill last season, but she just seems desperate now.

    • Jen says:

      This woman has truly lost it. She of course has confirmed she follows this blog (kadooz to all of you for that!) but I agree with the first commenter on the article, “SYMPATHY CARDS? MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTIONS? WHERE’S THE CRIME HERE? I DON’T GET IT.” This is so “contrived” to borrow a word from kellamity.

    Anyone has a MyJillZarin story?

    My Jill Zarin Story…
    I worked in the beautiful bldg 9 W57th St in NYC. It’s the beautiful bldg shown behind Trump Plaza. I was on the 48th floor with views of Central Park and Henri Bendel. The CEO of our company was a self made man from Baltimore and only we knew how hard he was on his employees. Prior to Xmas he said we would all suffer, our families would suffer. No bonuses. I decided I was gone. He was a constant mind fuck. I got a job making 7k more and gave my 2wks notice. I interviewed at this Jewish Realestate Management Co. It was as the office managers assistant. Yep, secretary. The office was dark and crowded. I was 50ft away from my boss in a bullpen with 4 secretarys and 2 floaters separating us. No view. I didn’t know this at the time of interview. I assumed i’d be outside his office. So wrong and GHETTO.

    My first day on the job, I was introduced to 3 or 4 of the over 200 people in the office. An older lady Roz was nice. At about 11am I get a call asking for James, my boss.
    me.) I’m sorry James has stepped away from his office, may I take a message?
    her.) where did he go?
    me. ) I’m sorry, I don’t know which department he is in , but he is in the office. If you’d like to leave a message I will make sure he receives it when he returns.
    her.) When did he leave?
    me.) He stepped away a few minutes ago. Maam, who’s calling?
    her). Becky
    me.) Becky…from which office? (As I take the message)
    her.) The president’s office. The president of this company.
    me.) Thank you Becky. I will alert James as soon as I see him, and will have him call you back.
    her.) Click!
    As soon as I see James turn the corner to his office, I call him and give him Becky’s message along with all the others. I see him take off again from his office and when he returns he asks me to join him. He asked what happened with Becky? I said she called while you were gone . I took a message and let you know as soon as I saw you. He told me that “Becky said you were rude and nasty.” I said “how can I be rude and nasty by requesting to take a message? I ran down the call to him and he said Becky is really important around here. She’s the president’s secretary you need to be nice and respectful. I said I just answered the phone, you cant tell which call is inter-office or incoming. He then said I will always let you know which dept. i’m in. You’ll always be able to reach me.
    I went to lunch at 2pm. I see Roz sitting alone in the lunch room which was 12×12. She asked “What happened with you and Becky?
    me.) Excuse me?
    Roz.) What happened with you and Becky? She told us that you were rude and nasty to her.
    me. ) I’m sorry. I don’t know what is going on. I’m just trying to get the hang of the office.
    Roz.) (looking around) Be careful with Becky. Watch out for her.
    me….dazed and confused. After lunch, I go to my bullpen and see this big lady talking to the secretary that sits across from me. She’s mid twenties, with mousey brown hair, cut in a blunt with a red headband. She’s wearing a plaid skirt, red sweater, white stockings and penny loafers. She’s a size 22.
    I am not. She goes to James office. When she leaves I hear secretarys saying Bye Becky, Nice skirt Becky, What are you doing on this side Becky?
    Once again, I’m called to James’ office and asked what happened?
    me.) what happened when?
    him.) Becky said that you didn’t say hello to her and that you gave her a dirty look.
    me.) Are you serious? I didn’t even know that was Becky until I heard people saying goodbye. I don’t understand what is going on here. All I did was take a message.
    him.) You need to be respectful of her because her boss is the big boss. I don’t want any problems with him.
    me.) I treat everyone respectfully, and just request the same in return. Is this going to be an issue?
    him.) Just treat Becky with respect. She’s the eyes and ears of this place.
    As I returned to my bullpen, the secretaries gave me dirty looks. They never spoke to me, ever! The only friends I had there were the floaters. All the Jewish gals in the office, 25 and older, never spoke to me and made a point to look away if I smiled in their direction. All because of Becky, First Day of work, because I took a message while James was away from his desk.
    I was constructively fired 3 months later. Didn’t even make it to Easter. LOL By the way I was fired by Tom Hartley from CNN’s wife. Another Story! LOL

    You see Becky, the ugly jewish girl, was my Jill Zarin. She disliked me before she met me. She spread rumors about me, and made the other secretaries hate me too. I could stereotype and say all jewish girls are evil, but that would be an injustice to jewish families. It was just Becky…MyJILLZarin.

      But she just can’t help herself, can she? It’s in her nature. Very sad!

  106. katiecoo says:

    I do feel bad if Alex is inadvertently linked to anything she has had nothing to do with. God knows she’s got enough to deal with being in the crosshairs of Zarin. But it looks like she’s used to it now w/ Jill blaming her for whatever that “5 sources” deal she threw at her regarding some charity event gossip. You could tell by Alex’s reaction she had no idea what Zarin was talking about.

    It’s interesting though the Narcissistic projection–their constant MO. You can see what she’s up to by what she’s blaming others of. I find it interesting that she’s the most “kept” of all the housewives, no real need to work, supported in a lifestyle most people envy ($$ I mean), lots of time on her hands to conjur up what revenge du jour she’s focused on.

    Yet she finds ways to blame the busiest of all the housewives work/family wise (Alex and Bethenny) on all these plots they are supposedly involved in focused on destroying her life in various ways. Bethenny’s trying to destroy every aspect of Kelly’s life according to Jill WHILE building a brand, writing books, going on book tours, negotiating a new show where she’s the star and nurturing a brand new relationship! She’s Superwoman! Now her sidekick “Devil girl” Alex is working at her busy burgeoning business, involved in organizing charity events such as Brookly Fashion week, caring for two small boys, traveling around the country w/ her family doing book tours and yet has time to make her singular focus stalking and harassing Jill Zarin!

    I’m telling you, wanna know what she’s up to? Take a look at her accusations. THAT is her life. In my opinion of course.

    Page 6 story…

    The crazy part of it all is that she’s trying to link another housewife to the greeting card shenanigans. Tsk Tsk. Jill will do whatever it takes. She’ll say anything, use anyone, go anywhere, to promote herself positively. Any damage done, Oh Well… she doesn’t care. It’s all about her, Ginger and the Benjamins ($100).

  108. A former Jill fan says:

    Another thing. Who was that idiot writer? He didn’t check his facts. Shoddy journalism!

    I’m answering each “charge” with all caps only to easily separate my response from what was written in the article.

    “Real Housewives” star Jill Zarin is the victim of a sick campaign.
    THE SICKNESS IS IN HER OWN MIND…

    A source close to Zarin told us,
    LOL! I DON’T EVEN HAVE TO TOUCH THAT! LOL!

    “A woman posted her address and urged fans to send Jill sympathy cards for the death of her soul,
    ZARIN’S BUSINESS ADDRESS WAS POSTED, I BELIEVE (PUBLIC RECORD). NOBODY WAS ENCOURAGED TO SEND MAIL TO HER HOME ADDRESS WHICH IS A MATTER OF PUBLIC RECORD, TOO, ANYWAY.

    I THINK SOMEONE DID WANT TO SEND JILL A CARD “FOR THE DEATH OF HER SOUL”. APPROPRIATE, IN MY HUMBLE OPINION.

    while another urged people to sign Jill up for magazine subscriptions.
    INCORRECT! NOBODY SAID “SIGN JILL UP FOR MAG SUBSCRIPTIONS AND SEND THOSE SUBSCRIPTION CARDS IN TO THE MAG”.

    HERE’S THE TRUTH: AFTER THE MENTION OF SENDING IN SYMPATHY CARDS TO JILL FOR THE LOSS OF HER SOUL, INTEGRITY, REPUTATION, ETC., SOMEBODY SUGGESTED SENDING (INSIDE THE SYMPATHY CARD) THE SUBSCRIPTION CARD TO A PARTICULAR MAGAZINE THAT I THINK FEATURED BETHENNY TO GET JILL’S GOAT.

    BUT, SOMEBODY MISUNDERSTOOD AND ASKED IF THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO FILL OUT THE SUBSCRIPTION CARDS WITH JILL’S NAME AND ADDY AND SEND THEM IN TO THE MAGAZINE. SHE WAS CORRECTED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.

    We think these people are friends with another housewife.”
    SOME OF US REALLY DO LIKE ALEX AND BETHENNY. WE LIKE TEAM BRASS! OR A LOT OF US DO, THAT IS. SOME DON’T…

    Zarin wrote on Twitter: “We are being harassed and threatened . . . We have contacted authorities. Someone posted my address and told people to send me threatening mail . . . Using the US Postal Service is a serious crime.”
    THIS IS WHAT THE WOMAN DID…SO? WE ALREADY KNEW SHE’D MADE A FOOL OF HERSELF! LOL!

    FINALLY, NOBODY WAS “TOLD” TO DO ANYTHING! IT WAS STRICTLY A VOLUNTARY BASIS. AS IF ANY OF US COULD REALLY CONTROL A BUNCH OF STRONG MINDED WOMEN AND GENTS LIKE WE HAVE POPLULATING THIS BOARD! GEESH!

    oops! I guess that last I could have done without the all caps. Sorry! 🙂

  116. emt2 says:

    Jill is playing real dirty and trying to get Alex fired. When she was on the Wendy Williams show, Wendy asked her which housewife does she want to see leave the show, she said Alex.

    Now, she is trying very hard to make that happen.

    Jill is so pathetic. I really hate her even more now for her distortions of the truth. She is a complete monster and doesn’t know when to stop.

    All she had to do was stop talking and saying nasty things about her castmates for awhile. But no, she decides to pick on poor Alex because she can’t really say anything about Bethenny at this point.

    Jill is bad for Bravo because she causes too many headaches. If I were Bravo, I wouldn’t gamble with Jill bringing in the ratings by having her back on the show. Jill is a real problem now and the way she twists things and tries to bully people who don’t like her or who cross her, can come back to haunt Bravo. They need to talk to her about how she is handling all of this and if she remains difficult, then it’s time to nip it in the bud by letting her go.

    Bravo needs to really analyze Jill because she is dangerous to the show. She has taken things too far. Andy Cohen, please, listen to the fans of the show and please do not renew Jill. She is on a very dangerous vendetta and something bad is going to happen because of her extreme behavior.

    We, at this blog, dislike her but we certainly do not wish her any harm in a real way. The problem is that due to her constant media schemes and twisting of facts, she has opened herself up to being a liar and hypocrite and dangerous. All you have to do is follow the blogs and comments and it’s clear that Jill is distorting the truth. The real problem is that she is creating enemies who do wish her harm. We, on this blog, don’t like her but would never wish her harm.

    With Jill’s constant blaming in the media and constant need to make someone her enemy by distorting the truth and playing dirty, she is becoming a liability for not only Bravo, but her own family as well. She is creating this problem and it’s going to get uglier and uglier. She has made a lot of enemies and seems to be on a dangerous downward spiral. Someone at Bravo needs to step in and try and control Jill’s behavior. I have a bad feeling about Jill and all of the things she has done to create problems for her and her family.

    Bravo, tell Jill to stop talking to the media and creating problems because it’s going to become a real problem.

  118. otaypanky says:

    just one more thing…recently, helen thomas said that israeli jews should go home. back where they came from…like poland, germany, etc. She was finally retired. She is 89 years old afterall.
    High profile Jews are making it very clear that this was not an anti semitic remark. thomas is of middle eastern descent and that is just a view of many middle easterners who see Israel more as an occupying force.
    Why is this distinction important? Because there is REAL anti semitism in this world. Anti semitism Jill is dates back to the pograms of Russia. It is a sentiment that created Nazi Germany. Intelligent people, Jews and Christians alike do not wish to see such a serious issue diluted.
    Now along comes two day a year Jew Jill Zarin or High Holy Day Jew Jill Zarin.
    Stop tossing around verbiage whose meaning you obviously have no understanding of, attachment to or could give a shit about.
    You take a serious issue and use it like a sword against your perceived enemies. You are seriously a sick, sick person.

    I HATE JILL ZARIN MORE AND MORE AND MORE.

    Jill is not only bad for Jews, she is a danger to them.

    • A former Jill fan says:

      Good point otay. Thanks for your OP on Helen Thomas. Regardless of the fact that Thomas is of middle eastern descent, did she never study or had any awareness of the Jewish homeland? And she has been a journalist how long?

    by the way, Jill’s lawsuits include one against Bethenny for “stealing her idea” for B’s spinoff.

    one of the pr people jill is working with is jonathan cheban. he was on spindustry w kim kardashian and used to work w lizzie grubman. he hangs out w a lot of housewives including jill, kelly and caroline.

    it’s interesting, to say the least.

    i’m not good w videos, but someone should do a video showing how jill contradicts herself and lies by showing clips from all seasons and including her recent ruckus in the press.

    that is an effective way of showing bravo how dangerous this woman has become.

    I posted under Susanna a few times but am now using this moniker since it’s the one I now use on Twitter to follow this mess (Simon is my first follower…yay! And Alex sent me a DM saying Thanks!) Thanks you guys for the great read and the fantastic links. I check them all out. Hard as she is trying it doesn’t look like Zarin can turn this around. The FACTS are out there. That link to “The Dirty” was perfect proof that Zarin is having her PR people try to spin, spin, spin. She’s toast. Honestly, I could handle her continuing on the show because she will just continue to be a train wreck and everyone will continue to rubberneck. I’m sure Bravo knows that. The one thing that I hope with all my heart is that they DON’T feel the same way about Kelly. I’ve known people like this. They are all trying to get ahead and be successful. Yes that involves PR and all sorts of decisions. Seems to me Jill’s method is to get ahead by trashing others, rather than on her own merit. That’s what we’ve seen and that’s why her “character” is not liked. BRASS can stand on their own, right? LuMan and Kellamity still hang on to Jill because they are just being opportunitistic. I have no doubt in my mind, whatsoever, that Jill has campaigned to get people on her side all this time. And not by using nice methods either. Proof of that is in the way that Kelly so often regurtitates sayings that can be so obviously proven to have come from Jill’s mouth first! No doubt Jill created that monster and Kelly was the perfect “foil” precisely because she is not very bright and is cut from the same mean mode, unstable tho it may be. The fallout from this mistake is that Jill is trying to “handle it” albeit in a bumbling and foolish way. Kelly can’t “handle it” at all!!! We may hate Jill Zarin but I think Kelly is truly the dangerous one. JAA/O. (Just Another A**hole/Opinion) 🙂

  124. Quincy IL says:

    In 1980, the Iranian Revolution raged. One of my inlaws sent a condolence card to the widow of a man who had been executed by the regime. The executed man was a middle management goverment employee who had served Iran his whole life, but the Iran he served was ruled by a dictator, The Shah, who had run away to Egypt, leaving mad men in charge of his nation. The punishment for that sent condolence card was death.
    The Iranian revolutionary leaders took my in law into the street of Tehran and killed him in front of his children, wife and neighbors who respected him.

    The condolence card campaign had meaning to me. Jill is so like those mad men in Iran. She strikes out against anyone who disagrees with her. Now, she has included someone from the reality who met with people from this site in Chicago. This is wrong, Jill Zarin.

    I was very careful when writing my posts, but should I and others be swept up in some insane campaign from Jill Zarin, I will stand up for my right to free speech and for the rights of others. I will do that by using lawyers just as Jill as threatened to use lawyers.

    It is my sincere hope that the madmen don’t take over this planet. Sometimes, you have to stand up to bullies. In my opinion, Jill Zarin and those Iranian revolutionaries have something in common.

      Amen, Quincy! Jill is nothing but a bully and trying to use intimidation tactics to silence her critics. There is nothing that makes me more angry than someone who tries to bully others in this manner. When someone like this pushes, I push back harder. This country is great because we have our freedoms and one of the most valuable is freedom of speech. And thinking of those in other countries whose freedoms are still trampled on sometimes to the point of death has always been an inspiration to me.

      Like, Jazz, I’m giving you a standing O!

  125. SusanS88 says:

    Quincy thanks for that very insightful story. So sorry your family had to endure that and your analogy is thought provoking, for me. When I go to read the links everyone posts, I check out as many comments as I can, also. There are those folks saying so what, it’s just a reality show. Just a character or just TV. But the fact is that 1) it’s reality TV, not a movie, not a fictional character and 2) these people put their real selves out there and so, become public figures…willingly!! They do so in order to “gain” something (money, fame, whatever). So these folks are willing to accept the accolade from the public, based on their actions, they must be willing to accept the criticism as well. Why some fans and said public figure don’t understand this, and start whining and crying about it, is beyond me. It doesn’t matter one damn whit whether these people are showing their “real” selves or whether they are faking their persona or not. They are “real” because that is their choice and we (the folks they make their money and fame off of) have every right to like or dislike them! Fucking duh!

    Jill miscalculated. She chose the wrong strategy, whether that strategy was to be her true self or whether it was a calculated image she projected. And regardless of what Bravo chooses to show, fact is, she gives them the raw material! And the reality is that she continues the same strategy, to this day, that got her disliked in the first place!

    Personally, I think Bethenny is the smartest and most cunning of all. She is a sharp girl, business wise, with Ramona and Alex right behind her. I’ve said it before that all three made some mistakes in presenting themselves for “consumer consumption” as it were. But all three also share the same smarts in assessing and changing their “characters” for the better. That is exactly what Ramona’s TruRenewal was about and so I dubbed her TruGenuis. TV show or not, some of a person’s real nature and character is gonna come out sooner or later and everyone I’ve read on this blog recognizes that. That’s why the S3 is as juicy as it is. The cream rose to the top and the shit rolled downhill…LOLAM (another new one, laughing out loud at myself).

    Sorry Quincy I hijacked your wonderful story to go off on another rant! I’m like the other commenter that doesn’t post much and when I do it just becomes a projectile that I can’t control..Duck! So sorry. I am as frustrated with the charade part of this as much as everyone else is. Lynn I hope you are doing well and I love you lots for this blog and everything you do!

        I know I’m repeating myself but JZ, Kelly and Danielle keep co-opting our genuine stories to manipulate public opinion. It minimizes the pain that Qunicy (so sorry Quince) and others experienced. It’s offensive to those of us that have survived bullying, stalking, and hate crimes. And it’s insulting to the memories of those who didn’t.

    I sense a “dig” from her posting it to her FB page. And just when I was letting up on my disgust for her *smh*

  134. MAMAZ says:

    I’m guessing that JZ sees the clock ticking down on her 15 minutes of fame. She is desperate to hang on and is going down fighting. If she really wanted all this to go away all she has to do is stop behaving like a nasty bitch. Stop slamming everyone in the press, stop threatening frivalous lawsuits, stop deleting anything she doesn’t agree with, stop having friends write fake 5 star reviews. Just STAWWP.

  135. MAMAZ says:

    Of course it’s her. I don’t even know that Lynn blocked her. She was posting a couple of days ago after the brouhaha over the weekend. Was she the one that kept cutting and pasting the same comment for Lynn? If she was blocked that was why. It was obnoxious. Lynn asked us all to let it go and whoever that was refused to do it.

    Hey this is kind of random but…is it possible for Jill or one of her lackeys to post something on this blog to than turn around and attack for? You know, like post her home number or something and than blame this blog for it even though they posted? I just curious if anyone else is concerned about the psycho (who is definitely stalking this blog) doing that.

    • JillHater says:

      It’s possible, one thing I like about this blog is that Lynn is very good about deleting that kind of stuff. The only addresses that I have ever seen posted here are the public ones that are listed as contacts through BRAVO and Zarin Fabrics. So, if Jill is claiming that Lynn posted her home address here, then that is one more lie that can be added to Jill’s already exceedingly long list of lies.

  137. dumberries says:

    Hi all!
    Zarin is really getting desperate and losing touch with reality. Indirectly, we are supplying the content for the pathetic press exposure that she’s gotten this week – she’s got nothing else of relevance to submit to the media outlets. And she still seems genuinely unaware of how foolish she looks by over-dramatizing the situation and trying to position those of us that dare to express an unfavorable opinion as “threatening and dangerous” people. A lot of people who read the newspapers that are featuring her crazy spin on things wouldn’t even be aware of sites like this if she wasn’t using them in her latest ploy to make herself look like the victim of “hate crimes”! Stupid and hypocritical woman. Almost makes me wish everyone would simultaneously stop making any comments whatsoever about her so she would just fade away. BUT, she would probably make up some other BS in her desperate attempt for attention. Plus, I enjoy all of you and appreciate my right to free speech as much as I dislike Zarin! Have a good day!!

  138. ana says:

    I totally agree with you on Teresa Giudice. She is a nasty piece of work. The things she says about the other casts are ridiculous. But mostly why I dislike her is that her and Joe’s parenting skills are disgraceful. They are turning these girls into monsters.

    I pity anyone that has to be around these children. I really don’t understand how the other women can say these girls are so cute and funny. They are going to be the most miserable adults to deal with. Princesses from hades!

    Teresa says that spoiling the girls is fine, because her father spoiled her and she turned out just fine. hahahahaha! She’s only ‘fine’ because she married an idiot with a lot of money (until she spent it all – lol. Wonder how she’ll be in her new financial situation?) What happens when the daughters end up with normal lives, having to do such horrible things as ‘work’ and live in ‘pre used’ homes! The horror!
