I Hate Jill Zarin No Harm No Foul June 10, 2010

I Hate Jill Zarin                   Jill’s Accusations and Threats      June 10, 2010

Oh the anger of Jill Zarin, it is oozing like slime all over the internet!  She is doing what she does on the show.  We have been watching the REAL Jill Zarin.  Her claims that she is this season’s scapegoat are so ridiculous when we’ve all seen what she is capable of.  Even if all of the things she did on screen were not real, were scripted and were put together only for television, it doesn’t matter, she is a horror in real life as well. 

Jill’s latest RANT is a direct result of her anger about Alex and Simon’s visit to Chicago.    It sickens me that they have been dragged into this because they are amazingly nice people.   I really couldn’t care less about Jill and her feelings because she is creating drama for several reasons.  This will bring her sympathy from the few fans she has left and it gives her what she feels is ammunition against Alex, (breathe in that pure oxygen Alex!) 

Did anyone else notice that originally the “threats” were coming from families in Chicago and in Alabama?  Suddenly Jill realizes that she could use this to her advantage for the show next year!   Jill wants nothing more than to get Alex off the show so a few days after her dramatic statement that she is being threatened, suddenly it is now “cast mates” who are threatening her? 

The problem with Jill, as I have always said, is that she thinks she is smarter than everyone else, and she thinks fans are stupid (granted some are) but the majority of the RHONY demographic of viewers are fairly well educated.  This is why she thought she could get away with her FAKE book reviews on Amazon and blaming Babygate on her own daughter!  In reality, Jill reacts to things based on her emotions, namely anger.  Notice that when Jill received the cards, she tried to make light of it and show everyone that she wasn’t bothered by it in the least.  The day before they filmed the reunion, Jill tweeted that she received some nice gifts that Bobby brought home from work.  Hahaha, it didn’t bother you in the least, huh Jill?  Well good for you for being so level headed and above it all! 

In all honesty, I was impressed by her reaction.  She didn’t make a big deal about it and basically said, “screw you people, it doesn’t bother me in the least”.  It certainly didn’t make up for her disgusting behavior over the past season, but impressive all the same.

I should have known better!   Jill knew about Alex & Simon’s visit to Chicago and she knew that I was organizing a cocktail reception for them at Simon’s request.   As I’ve said before, I completely understand her anger.  I don’t blame her to be honest.  Without revealing any details, I can say that she did take steps to try to stop it from happening.  Again, I get why she was upset but trying to stop it from happening was taking it a step too far, but that is Jill, isn’t it?  It is consistent with what we’ve seen happen over and over.  Obviously her attempts were futile.  

This is what sparked her anger.  She couldn’t control Alex and Simon, when the event in Chicago went off without a hitch, it caused Jill to turn ugly.  What was, just a few weeks ago, some “gifts” that Bobby brought home from work, has suddenly turned into threats? 

Anyone who is buying into her most recent stunt deserves to be duped, once again, by Jill Zarin! 
Jill has naïve fans giving her sympathy, she has idiot reporters giving her ridiculous accusations attention, she has morons blogging their support for her.  This is what she wants. 

Kelly’s famous PR101 in action for Jill Zarin, watch how it works everyone…..

I’m going to address the few dozen or so people who post regularly on the comments section here, if you want to post a comment, feel free to do so but just keep in mind that if you attack or insult another poster here, your comment will be deleted.  It is really very simple, don’t care if you swear, I DO care if you swear at one another.  You get it. 

If you are pissed off, go take a walk, go watch some TV, just take a deep breath.  Then come back and rationally post.   The whole point of this blog is to discuss, debate and share. 

I love the posts of other sites, blogs, videos, photos, keep posting and blogging.  There is no need to apologize in case it has already been posted.  Maybe some people hadn’t seen it the first time, if you see something you like that you think others will enjoy, go for it! 

I read most, if not all of the comments that have been posted over the last 5-6 hours and I’m touched by all of your support, I really am.  So many of you are so kind and I appreciate that you recognize what I’m trying to do.  Thank you to all of you! 

For all of you who have been so wonderful and so supportive I am determined we’re going to make this work!  We will bash the housewives damnit!  LOL 

The bad news is not everyone is so kind and surprise!  Not everyone likes me….go figure!   Unfortunately, when “trolls” come in to disrupt the chat, it really affects all of you even more than it affects me and for that, I apologize.  Obviously we’ve gotten a lot more attention recently (Thanks Jill!)  so as someone on the blog said, it is going to create even more “trolls” than ever before.  It will all die down in a few weeks when RHONY is over and Jill Zarin crawls back under her rock, until then hang in there with me, we’ll deal with it issue by issue, just have fun and go nuts!  (not literally)

Until next time….

p.s.  The CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS ARE STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS!  I will be drinking Champaign out of that cup at my cousins wedding!  I cannot wait to see it!

    Thank you Lynn! I was floating around in outer space over there…without a moon suit! 😉

  2. katiecoo says:

    Ok so been waiting to point out from a last season episode. Luann and a niece or someone (?) meet up with Kelly for drinks and Kelly invites Max to swing by. Some observations:

    1. She was WAY in to Max at that time (then pretended she barely knew who he was later).

    2. He had to leave cuz he had a “late night dinner” waiting…..um….Sonja maybe? :O

    3. When Luann suggested Kelly needed to “take her hair down”, she literally took her hair out of whatever clip it was in. Even Luann was laughing at how she takes things too literally. ha!

    • HD says:

      I was thinking the SAME thing…why was she faking like she knew sooooooooooooo many Max’s. Max is not even a common name. I could see John or Bob but Max. Come on? She felt stupid that Sonja slept with her fake boyfriend and tried to play it off like she just knows sooooooooooooo many men named Max. GTFOH!

    • Hooked On Housewives says:


      Kellamity is such a tool. Is it a one night stand if you are dating a gigolo and that gigolo is seeing at least one other woman three or four times a week and you see him only once a week? If you put out for him, does that make you a hobag? Inquiring minds want to know.

    • oopsy says:

      Great job again Lynn. Look! Jill Zarin is blowing oxygen your way! How sweet!
      Last season’s reunion Kelly said something like Max and I are not dating but he is such a great guy that I wanted him on the show in some fashion. (Paraphrase) The whole ‘dating Max’ thing was just to give him airtime, she said so! I don’t watch the show for fake dates and pretend boyfriends. It pisses me off because it implies that the viewer is too stupid to know better or to care. Having an idiot like Kelly treat me like I’m stupid is just too much for me to take. I HATE JILL ZARIN!!

  3. boston02127 says:

    Knock, knock. Hello? Anyone here? Lol, I’ve been lost on Blogs all night…help!

    • katiecoo says:

      Hi Boston! Me too! I was talking to myself! lol

      • Annie1033 says:

        Same here!

        Yeah that was the DUMBEST THING EVER…..o.k., well not exactly…she HAS topped herself since but I was cringing like crazy when she dramatically, shampoo-commercial-style “let her hair down”. Oh just go away Kelly! Go away!

        • katiecoo says:

          Yeah I think she was even trying to do that hair toss in slow motion. What was next? Dropping a pearl in someone’s Skinnygirl Margarita to see how slowly it can float down?

  4. Shadowsnomore says:

    Great blog Lynn. I always look forward to what you have to say.

  5. Sue says:

    Jill you’re awesome. You don’t let any of this get you down. Plus, who cares about Jill Zarin when the Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup after 49 years!!!! My 7 year old says, “Now we just have to wait another 49 years until they will again.” NOOOOOO! 🙂

    You know, the amount of time that Jill takes with all this saving her image crap or just the craziness she could be spending that time on charity work or something worthwhile. Instead of spending money on all these PR people she could have sent that money to Creaky Joints, the American Red Cross or ASPCA in honor of Ginger Zarin :D. Waste of money because unless she changes the money means nothing except lining the experts pockets.

    • Shadowsnomore says:

      I think you meant Lynn. LOL. Just thinking about Jill can cause brain haze!

    • Sue says:

      Oh no! NOT Jill …Lynn…Lynn you are awesome! (Dear Lord not Jill).

      • MNSUE says:

        Hey Sue I just posted downthread that I will now change my name. Did you ever notice there was another Sue (me)? Maybe neither one of us said anything because imo I didn’t really object to anything you said.

        • Scorpiosue says:

          I didn’t even notice. I’ll be Scorpiosue :). It’s close enough to my Twitter.

    • katiecoo says:

      I know you meant to say Lynn is awesome. 😉 And I totally agree on the charity stuff…I don’t even think her “charity work” is charitable…just another excuse to buy a new outfit, to throw another party, to get more swag and most importantly more photo ops.

    • A former Jill fan says:

      LOL! Yeah, I’m sure you meant Lynn! LOL!

      Good points though Sue! jill spends too much time/money/effort on herself. Narcissist!

  6. chismosa says:

    Hi Katiecoo- i am dying to watch season 2, i have to see if they’ll repeat.

    LYNN- we are behind you 1000%, you have given us a wonderful place to vent and to breathe out and to just lay back and let the $hit roll about this horrific witch of a woman who has shown her TRUE CHARACTER time and time again and who is paid to be on a television show. She has alienated probably thousands of people with her actions and words and Bravo should be so embarrassed to have her on their network. They are stupid to bring her back. I hope the Bravo web-crawlers catch THAT.

    It was SO gracious of you to be so great with Alex & Simon, you are not looking to harm anyone at all, and neither are ANY housewives, especially BRAS. By having this website you are expressing an opinion which is what we do in this country – even if it means some people disagree (see Helen Thomas).
    If indeed any CARDS which are LEGAL to send to people who’s addresses are PUBLICLY AVAILABLE– were indeed sent, then SO F-ing what. She could have chose not to open them, reject them, etc. It is not a federal/state violation.
    Honestly, the page 6 article was very joke-like, so even if the bitch is in bed with page 6- it did seem very tongue in cheek, like ‘save her soul’ you know? that is my opinion.

    I applaud you Lynn and thanks for taking up HOURS of my life reading this site, it has been so much time, but at least i can lower my blood pressure and release my venom for this bitch.

    So- hugs and warm regards always to Lynn and trolls go slither somewhere else. This joint is kicking….

    • katiecoo says:

      I set my tivo to get all the RHONY episodes and it grabbed a few from last season a couple of days ago..a bonus!

    • Jillousyness says:

      I took it that way too on Page 6. I thought they were making fun of her too, mentioning sympathy for the death of her soul.

    • A former Jill fan says:

      You’re right, chismosa, and look at the other negative influences Bravo now has besides having all the sleazy, badmouthing, bickering, petty, backstabbing crap they’re airing on the different housewife shows: Jill, Danielle, Kelly, Jill, Ashley, Teresa, Tamra, Lynn, Vicki, Nene, and Kim. To me, these are such positive role models. NOT! Bravo’s track record is looking pretty bad now.

      Bravo is using people with problems to bring on the drama: Danielle, Kelly, Jill, Ashley

      And rewarding some for bad behavior–really all that have engaged in bad behavior.

      Ashley’s reward of a bravo blog really takes the cake. I don’t care for Danielle at all, but Ashley attacked the woman. Nobody should be rewarded for that! Whoever is praising Ashley for “protecting family” should be ashamed. She attacked a woman with mental problems! Wow! That is really something to be proud of! Have you ever heard of just walking away?

      I wonder when Bravo will have their first housewife hooker–active that is.

      • Kat says:

        Active hooker? = Danielle and Jill Zarin.

      • CarrieCinKY says:

        I totally agree with you on the Ashley situation…. she’s taking the blog that bravo gave her & using it to suprise! bash Danielle. If you guys think the blog is bad, you should check out some of Ashley’s tweets.
        It’s- @Ashley_Holmes

        • CarrieCinKY says:

          oops…. sorry, it’s @_AshleyHolmes

          • Tmoco23 says:


            Wow, she is just GIVING away a lot the material that they could use for the reunion show. Be sure to click the “see more answers” button- more than once. I gathered that she is basically saying Dina is gone, calling Danielle’s DAUGHTER, Christine, a whore, that Danielle was fcuking Danny and caused his divorce, etc. O_O smh/ JUICY DETAILS just made RHONJ interesting for the first time this season. lol!

    • twoile says:

      Ditto though I’m new 2 “publishing” I’ve vicariously enjoyed all of the postings during many hours of reading…….”thanks for the memories” Lynn

  7. chismosa says:

    ps what are we up to on the petition? i need to sign some more names on there….

  8. boston02127 says:

    @Sue~~When I started out reading that post and saw Jill’s name I thought to myself Ugh not again, I was so happy to see it was you and not a troll.

  9. Jillousyness says:

    Nicely said Lynn. Isn’t it funny that Jill is taking PR lessons from Karazy Kelly? I’d say it’s the blind leading the blind but actually it’s more like the stupid leading the stupid. Jill’s attempts at publicity and attention are backfiring from what I’ve seen today. Some of the gossip sites and pages are poking fun at her more than falling for her planted bits. I love it. Couldn’t happen to a more hateful and deserving bitch.

    She can try to take down Alex and Simon but it’s not going to work. She has no pull at Bravo and has irritated Andy Cohen so her influence is greatly exaggerated in her mind. From the article that was in last Sunday’s New York Times the suits at the networks do a lot of research and gathering of information when making their decisions and just because Jill doesn’t like someone carries no weight. I’m sure they’ll keep her (Jill) because she does bring the drama and stirs the shit pot constantly but everything that is out there regarding Alex is nothing but positive. She’s seen at a lot of events and has her picture taken and is written up in the press with a lot of charitable works. People have finally seen the real Alex and they like her – which is like an arrow in the ego of Jill. She can’t stand it! Plus the fact that Alex is now one of Bethenny’s inner circle of friends and shooting with her on her new show – priceless. As I said before, I love it!

    • katiecoo says:

      right on.

    • Hooked On Housewives says:

      Jillousy will probably hang on to her imagined threats until they start filming again (if she returns) so she can try to bash Alex and Simon. Then lo and behold. Jillousy can be the “theme” of season 4. Can’t you just see her crying to Bawby and LuMann. Alex is so mean. She harrassed me and had fans harrass me. She’s done. Daaaaaaaarrren. Make sure everything is in my notes.

      LOL. When I hear the word theme it makes me think of the movie “A Christmas Story” when Ralphie’s teacher says, I want you to write, “A Theme.” Sorry. I love that movie.

  10. Kat says:

    Lynn thank you for posting another blog!
    Congrats for your team’s win!

  11. error 404 says:

    OMG.. watch the middle video of Ramona


    she’s totally making fun of Countess deOneSleeve! lol

    • Jillousyness says:

      And again the brains on the couch on that side don’t get it. They all are so damn literal, they don’t listen to a whole statement and take off on one little thing. But it ‘is’ true about LuMan and her one shouldered Wilma’s. It’s all she wears.

      • chismosa says:

        omg i can’t believe Jill on this. Ramona is HYSTERICAL. great link, thanks!

        how ridiculous is Jill’s HAIR

        • chismosa says:

          one more thing, i think Alex in the third video is totally talking about B getting her own show, Today show bookings, etc!
          omg god BLESS Alex for calling out Jill on everything, running her mouth especially. I can’t love Alex anymore than i do now, or tomorrow night… ha ha

      • HousewifeInCurlers says:

        Sometimes, though, Ramona just doesn’t know how to to get her point across! I cringed when she made the comment about Luann’s dress b/c all she was doing was giving Luann the opportunity to say “See? I told you so..she’s so rude” in her pretentious voice. Especially when Bethenny is sitting there with that ridiculous silver puffy one shoulder. God, I LOVE you Bethenny, but WHY? Who picked out that dress?
        And Jill’s hair, AWFUL! What was she thinking? It’s not even age-appropriate, IMO.
        Luann does rock the one shoulder look an awful lot (she says it’s because she likes her shoulders) but I think she usually looks great and well put together.
        Alex’s hair looks the best I’ve ever seen it! She looks amazing!

      • Hooked On Housewives says:

        The one shouldered thing makes me LOL because in one interview (I’ve forgotten who posted the link) LuMann, Jillousy AND Kellamity all had on those one shouldered things. I think they were going for the triplet look.

    • Kat says:

      Excellent, thank you error for posting that.

    • Zipit Zarin! says:

      I took the “Which Housewife Are You” quiz on the right side. I’m Alex. 😀
      On the question “Who Do You Hate Most”…there is no Jill
      Zarin choice!! What the….

    • BamaBelle says:


      Thanks for posting those videos. I watched and OMG… I can’t stand that freaking CRAZY KELLY! And that smug look on Jill’s face, it’s sickening!

      Jill said she had a rough 4 months. Really? What about Bethenny? She was working and writing another book with a deadline, found love, her estranged father died, got pregnant, got married… AND had to deal with Jill completely trying to destroy her while all this was going on!

      I’m been meaning to post about Jill’s comment about Bobby’s cancer. Jill told Bethenny “he had his f’ing throat cut from ear to ear”. I don’t believe this is true because my sister had the same surgery. She had thyroid cancer and had to have her tyroid removed. She was not cut from ear to ear… she had a small incision at the bottom of her neck. She was in the hospital a few days and the doctor said she would barely have a scar. That was years ago. She’s fine and has a very small scar that you really can’t see unless you look closely.

      Not that cancer isn’t serious, but Jill is lying when she said Bobby was cut from ear to ear. What she told Bethenny about it being a procedure is more the truth. My sister was grateful that the operation was a success, the cancer had not spread and didn’t feel the need to curse at anybody who didn’t come to the hospital or call her.

      Sorry that I got off topic to the reply!

      • Synda says:

        I thought the same thing about the incision being “from ear to ear”….my sister had this surgery a year ago. It is a 2 inch scar, hardly visible.

      • teamb says:

        I had that thyroid surgery and kept yelling at that narccissistic,,,attention getter,,,munch hauaen by proxy attention seeking Jill…They don’t cut u from ear to ear…um please for the love of God someone tell Kelly to wash her hair eww…but Bethenny was called out for not wanting Kelly on the show,,at last year’s reunion they all said they would have rather been 4 ,,,they made it like Bethenny was taking bread out of Kelly’s kid’s mouths.

  12. MNSUE says:

    A few random things.
    I saw talk of 2 Dees. I was posting as Sue and knew there was another Sue, I just didn’t get around to clarifying. Don’t think she did either but I don’t think there were any problems.

    Jill “surprising” them in VI. I think this was producer manipulation of some kind. Of course Luann was right to tell her not to surprise them. I don’t think I’ve seen talk of why Jill insisted on a surprise? Even though I hate her I just don’t get it.

    There is a fun, silly, but popular radio show here. They were about to talk about Jill Zarin getting death threats and harassed today. I called during their commercial break and explained there is more to the story. I said there is discussion on the site about whether or not the address should have been put there BUT and this is a big BUT: the cards were sent to Zarin Fabrics and the address is public knowledge.

    He said, well you seem to know more about this than we do.

    I then told him Alex and Simon had a previously planned date on their booktour and they graciously agreed to meet with fans.

    Honestly, I had about 10 seconds to say all this. So hopefully you will think what I said next is a fair characterization: the site is meant as a chat site//fan blog just like any other; you may not agree with the “hate” in the title but but its not a big conspiracy that Jill Zarin would like you to think.

    I had 10 seconds. I think I used them well. To be honest I am worried about starting some crazy fight here! 🙂

    I am 99% sure they never talked about it after the break. I listened for about 45 mns after that. Their discussions/recaps this season usually are about how shocking Jill has turned out to be.

    • boston02127 says:

      @MNSUE~~~The point?

      • MNSUE says:

        If you mean about what I said to the radio guy…when they came back from commercial they were planning on talking about all these threats Jill Zarin has gotten and “some of it apparently has come from a fellow cast member” (that’s what they had heard…)

        My point is that in talking to him, as quickly as I could I pointed out there info was wrong, there was more to the story, it was a non story about anyone hurting Jill Zarin.

      • boston02127 says:

        @MNSUE~~I’m sorry I misunderstood your post. Very sorry.

        • MNSUE says:

          That’s ok! Too funny! And let me apologize for not being clear, although I did say random thoughts! (I know I’m not clear enough. I admire people who get to the point quicker and with wit.)

          Have a great day. Its my birthday.

    • Kat says:


    • Annie1033 says:

      MNSUE – Sounds like you did a great job with that show!! Well done!

      • MNSUE says:

        Thanks. I did feel good about it. I would have gone on the radio but it wasn’t really a call in segment. These radio ladies are slightly ditzy but entertaing, They were about to just follow Jill’s party line. What I think happened was the producer decided to move on. He said, sounds like you know more than we do.

        It probably would have been better if they clarified after the break but I think its better than them discussing poor Jill for 5 minutes.

        I actually called him a second time to make the point about Alex and Simon having a preplanned book tour stop , and agreed to meet with some fans. Sort of like: nothing to see here folks, move along.

        • Annie1033 says:

          Right! Well, in the end, instead of explaining it FURTHER to their audience and with them opting to just NOT get into it at all, THAT’S what’s really gonna screw Jill up completely. No attention is what kills her, so you helped enable that. Again, well done!

    • jb8 says:

      Way to go, MNSUE. That quick action on your part helps stop the madness.

    • Hooked On Housewives says:


      Interesting. I imagine the radio station now has you on tape.

      What discussion? Which cards?

      LOL. Paranoid much Hooked?

    • DeeWhoLovesAlex says:

      Hi MNSue I was one of the Dees. Don’t know exactly what happened. Another person dee posted but because of the placement of the posts it looked as if I had written something I had not written. Just new to writing here, not trying to start any problems that is why I said I was sorry for any misunderstanding.

      Love Lynn. Love the blog. Love the writers. Off the subject a bit but did anyone else see the dog wearing the red shoes on the streets of NY? I think he was a bull dog, It gave me a big smile. Thought the camera person should get a thumbs up.

      Looking forward to tonight. Love Alex. My new RM. JZ, don’t like her ways but care to little about her to hate her.

  13. MNSUE says:

    Question, innocent question……
    did anyone ever consider Jill could have TOTALLY misunderstood sympathy cards? I mean what if she didn’t read them at all and thought they meant a plan to hurt someone?
    Don’t get me wrong, I dislike everything about her, I believe she is manipulating the press etc I just sometimes wonder if she sees sympathy and doesn’t even think it through or read it.

    • boston02127 says:

      @MNSUE~~What sympathy cards? I’ve been with this Blog for about two months now and have no clue what you are posting about. Are you sure you’re on the correct blog?

      • Jillousyness says:

        Back when Lynn was blogging over on the Hub site a commenter came up with the idea to send sympathy cards to Jill to mourn the loss of her fan base, her soul and dignity, ect. A lot of people including Lynn liked the idea and there were a lot discussions about where to send it and various things.

        • boston02127 says:

          @Jillousyness~~I know. 🙂 I was just trying to get everyone off the subject of the cards. I didn’t want it to go all day like the past couple of day.

          ps/I like the story of how you got your name.

          • MNSUE says:

            I will never mention it again. I kind of wondered how you hadn’t heard anything either but then you know what? It just occured to me that that was a totally different blog I was confusing with this one.

            My bad, never mind.

          • Jillousyness says:

            I was wondering? 🙂 I know you’re a regular and it didn’t seem that long ago. haha Oh well, I fell for it. And yes, I get what you’re saying about it going on and on. Let’s instead get ready to rumble – the Reunion – Part One. This board will be on fire!

          • LynnNChicago says:

            LMAO Boston 🙂

    • Kat says:

      She’s not naive just stupid. She twists sh!t, you gotta know that.

      • MNSUE says:

        Who me?

        • Kat says:

          No not you! Jill is not naive just stupid.
          My reply was to your post.

          • MNSUE says:

            ok….it takes me a while. I agree she twists things (in this case twisting these cards into serious threats)

            I didn’t really think she is naive, I just kind of wondered if anyone thinks there was a chance she honestly didn’t get it (it being sympathy sent for the loss of her soul. And I think I remember some saying loss of her friendship with B)

            • HousewifeInCurlers says:

              Well, one person did post on here to Lynn that the card she sent could have had ‘implications’ that may have been misinterpreted. I don’t think Jill really has a case or anything, but we don’t know what people were actually writing IN the cards. A lot of people got very upset when Jill’s alter ego told A.Chandler (on Amazon) that her (imaginary) cat should be taken from her b/c of the ‘implied threat’. So, Jill may have also read ‘implied threats’ in some of those cards.
              Or she’s just being a big ol’ drama queen as usual.

                Exactly when have I stooped to the level of the VILE Jill Zarin? I don’t LIE, I don’t try to get good people fired from their jobs,I haven’t posted with fake names on web sites all over the internet trying to manipulate people’s thinking, or to get people to do what will financially benefit me! (buying books) I haven’t threatened anyone(Amazon’s #1 ranked reviewer). Keep in mind that Alana Chandler (Amazon) received private email messages from Susan Saunders aka Jill Zarin that have not been released to the public. We don’t how much further this has gone beyond Jill suggesting a cat be taken away from her.
                I could go on and on about the sins of Jill Zarin, so tell me please what I have done that compares to this horrible woman?

                No one is emailing threats, or mailing threats!

            • Snarkapalooza says:

              Remember the call from Mario to Luann about the Countless remark? And Jill interpreting it as “Bring it on, bitch!”?

              Easy to see how she could take a snarky practical joke and turn it into an Al Qaeda style terrorist plot.

              • MNSUE says:

                Exactly and you know it doesn’t take a PHD in Psych to know she has evil, manipulative intentions and no heart so she assumes everyone else is like her.

                Project much, Jill?

                At the very least maybe Mario was being slightly sarcastic cuz its no secret he doesn’t like Jill (because he has a brain) but then it just goes to show she takes all this wayyy too seriously.

    • Kat says:

      lmao The commentary is as good as his drawings.

      LMAO! I love whoever does those illustrations!

    • boston02127 says:

      @MorgaineSwann~~Loved your comment. This almost makes me feel sorry for Danielle. Almost. When I stopped laughing anyway. Thank you, thank you, thank you, I needed a laugh tonight.

    • Anitabee says:

      I only feel sorry for her daughters. I hope school is out for them.

      You know Danielle had to give hustler the ok to release the tape. Chances run very high that she took the footage herself and sold it to Hustler.

      I could care less about the Manzo/Danielle stupid drama. This nutbag has know seriously hurt her daughters. What can the selfish tramp be thinking?

      Has anyone ever heard of a Supermodel whose mom was a porn star? No, not never. Christine’s modeling career is going to take serious hits. What top notch fashion house is going to hire Christine now? Or makeup line?
      Poor Christine.

      And the youngest — wow, this is the worst. She hasn’t even had a chance a life yet and now her mother is a porn star leaking her own movie all over the internet.

      Danielle must be so jealous of her own daughters. I can’t believe she would destroy them like this. Could you go to school and be able to handle what Danielle did? How are these poor girls supposed to survive junior high and high school?

      • boston02127 says:

        @Anitabee~ It’s too bad their father doesn’t step in.

        • anniieee says:

          I always worry about the kids….with moms like Danielle and Jill and LuMann and KOOKOOkellysmelly, the kids are the ones that have to face the music. The adults have a choice. These children are just dragged into it and whether we want to admit it or not–there are a lot of mean people out there (and kids at their schools) that can really damage these young kids self esteem. A child has unconditional love for a parent–lots of times misplaced–but it is still their mom. These kids are going to be carrying some heavy baggage around. Dina was smart..or her ex was. WHERE ARE THEIR DADDIES AND WHY AREN’T THEY DOING SOMETHING?

        • Anitabee says:

          Considering it is alleged that Mr. Staub met Danielle when she was a stripper and MARRIED HER it makes you wonder what kind of man Mr. Staub IS.

          Not too bright for starters. Then if he CARED at all he would go to court right now and save them from their porn star mother.

    • PFinFL says:

      Steal your eyeballs…..LOL!

    • Snarkapalooza says:

      I only feel sorry for her, as T would call them, “dorters”. Those girls deserve better.

  14. Jillousyness says:

    Totally OT but something I’ve wanted to say and explain since way back when I started visiting Lynn’s blog at the beginning. My name “Jillousyness” never had anything to do with Jill Zarin. My real first name is Jill and when I was first dating my husband he would teasingly say something to the effect that I was delicious (I know, gag, but it was super sweet at the time) so he made up the name Jillousyness. Now Jillousy how I’m know in the family and with close friends. When I first saw some of the nicknames for JillZ and one of them was Jillous for her being jealous of someone I couldn’t believe it. I just don’t want anyone here to ever think my handle has absolutely anything to do with the read headed dragon. Not important to anyone else but I want to finally say it here. Whew.

  15. MorgaineSwann says:

    You know, I’ve been thinking – Ramona and Alex & Simon make appearances on Bethenny’s show, so since we’re all sick of LuAnn, Jill and Kelly, they could just drop RHNYC altogether and bring Sonja on over to Bethenny’s show, LOL.

    I think Sonja would be a great mentor for Bethenny and she could introduce her to real New York society instead of the three wannabes.

    • MNSUE says:

      So true that is exactly what they are wannabes.

      Bethenny could hold her own with anyone because she wouldn’t be impressed just by their money. I could totally see her and Sonja hanging out with all kinds of people from different walks of life.

    • Jillousyness says:

      I like that idea! But I think Bethenny’s show is going to be more about her own life and her SkinnyGirl business. It’s going to suck to have to watch HWNY to see the nice girls and have to endure the shitheads too.

      • MNSUE says:

        I hope Jason doesn’t get too sick of all this filming and attention but I guess that’s between them. She deserves total happiness and I think he seems really cool.
        Looks like they can really banter back and forth.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Very interesting idea! If the ratings are there once we get through married and a baby, the next logical step is Bethenny’s life and fitting everything into it. Alex and Ramona are there doing it already, Sonja could add the fabulous dimension we want and pick up on charity for real. HEY BRAVO! LISTEN UP!

  16. MNSUE says:

    One more. About Kelly. Who does she blame for the press finding out about her assault charge/legal trouble?
    Obviously that doesn’t explain B supposedly attacking her children but I’ve always wondered if she blamed B for telling about Kelly s legal trouble.
    I wish they could make her explain what B could have possibly said about her children. Why the hell would B talk about kids?

    That said, if so obviously she’s totally ignoring the fact of public records and I really do think Jill and her big mouth has always been behind stoking the fire, i.e. blaming B for things to STUPID Kelly.

    But again, who did she ever say/blame for that boyfriend incident getting out there?

  17. Ches says:

    Well said Lynn, glad you didn’t get discouraged.

  18. Adgirl says:

    So happy you have added this page. I think some people were concerned you had been uploaded and were randomly bouncing around the ethernet in China waiting for the officials to allow you to be accessed.

    I don’t know why I went off on a few sites today about the whole Ordeal by Hallmark Cards. I must be just up to “here” with someone who is stealing food out of another family’s mouth. Disgraceful.
    Literally. Stealing. Food. Out of their mouths. Every. Single. Day. — Kidding. I have been wanting to say that all day. 🙂

    And, I couldn’t get over the Rat Patrol that was publicly lying about your deleting of their posts. I made a point not to respond on their own blogs because I do not want to give them the satisfaction. Ughh. Makes me very glad to be safe and physically secure behind my keyboard.

    Thanks for this safe site to vent our opinions.

    PS. congrats on the Stanley Cup win!
    Really, you get to drink champagne out of it??!
    Maybe you should try a little Diet Coke. Or Pinot Grigio. Corona?
    What the fuck – just mix them together. Then organize a photo shoot of bikini shots on the beach.

    • Kat says:

      I read some of the posts at one site linked here.
      You rock Adgirl.

    • Adgirl says:

      To clarify – I was referring to Jill’s attempt to blame the terrorist Hallmark card attack on Alex. Jill has been campaigning to have Alex thrown off the show for months now. It really upsets me because I think the income of RHNY is more maaningful to Alex (and her family, the Chums) than to Jill.

      Jill is in it for the FAME.

      • Jennifer says:

        Do we even know for sure She meant Alex? When I read it I thought Jill meant B , honestly.

        • Adgirl says:

          Jill apparently hates Alex (trying to get her booted off the show, yesterdays accusations about the cards coming from “friends” of a HW – Alex).

          I think Jill uses Alex as a proxy for her frustration at Bethenny.

    • MNSUE says:

      Alex talked about she wanted that photo shoot over and didn’t like Kelly prompting her using Johann’s name.

      Seriously, that was so so stupid/crazy of Kelly.

      Of course a photographer prompts with boyfriend and husband’s names but why the hell would Alex want to strut in a sexy bikini thinking about her son?
      Hello! Earth to Kelly…..

    • A former Jill fan says:

      Anybody who believes the lies being thrown around about Lynn and this site without bothering to find the truth by checking the facts contained in Lynn’s blog is not even worth the effort of setting finger to keyboard. They’re Jill’s sharks spreading lies and malicious gossip, just like their idol Jill.

      • MNSUE says:

        Point taken and in the end its just a show BUT radio shows talk about it, the view talks about it , water cooler talk everywhere without reading a blog so Jill’s misinformation hurts others.

        Not to mentionbelittling real victims.

  19. Ches says:

    Nice article on Bethanny and her show. A couple of Jill comments.

    Bethenny Frankel has it all .

    Photo It’s 1 p.m. in New York, and Bethenny Frankel is in her pajamas yapping on the phone about her marriage, being a mom at 39 and just where Kelly Bensimon stands on the crazy scale (Frankel’s diagnosis: “She’s certifiable.”).

    Frankel shot to reality star fame with her acerbic wit on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New York City. Now she’s juggling diaper changing — she just gave birth to daughter Bryn a few weeks ago — and book editing with a conference call to promote her spinoff show Bethenny Getting Married? The new docu-series chronicles the daily minutiae of Frankel’s life as she prepares — simultaneously — to become a mother and a housewife when she weds fiancé Jason Hoppy. She’s also managing a burgeoning career as a bestselling author and natural foods chef — though Kelly might disagree with that label.

    “This [show] just gets more micro, gets really into the details of my life,” Frankel said. “It’s not big blowouts over cocktails or charity events. . . . It’s more dedicated to the struggles I go through: being 39, getting engaged, getting pregnant, doing everything backwards.”

    Frankel says viewers will watch as she shops for wedding dresses while six months pregnant, the chaos of having to write two books and the unexpected early arrival of her first baby.

    “I think the devil’s in the details,” she said. “I could have a C-section and not be on any pain medication, but you give me too small of a portion at the ice cream store, and I may have a nervous breakdown.”

    The first episode sees Frankel trying to organize a housewarming party while searching for another assistant to help keep her life in order. There’s even an appearance by Alex and Simon McCord.

    Frankel insists that when a “Housewife” appears the scene isn’t staged or contrived: They appear “only to the extent that that’s what is really going on in my life. . . . I invited Alex to my bridal shower and she came. I invited Ramona (Singer), and she was out of town. . . . It’s nothing orchestrated.”

    So can we expect Jill Zarin to make the schlep over to Frankel’s show?

    “Jill is not on my show because Jill’s not in my life.” She added, “This is a time I really want people who are good for me and good for my family, and, like, I want clean energy and everything to be happy, and I want Bryn to have her life be perfect.”

    Bethenny Getting Married? premieres at 10 p.m. Thursday.

    • MorgaineSwann says:

      Damn it – there’s one comment there and it’s some jackass asking if Jason is gay. What is wrong with people? Jason reads like a conservative straight guy. Why do people have to trash everything and everybody? Not that there’s anything wrong with being gay, but can’t people be happy for a month or two before we put them through a paper shredder?

  20. MorgaineSwann says:

    I have a friend who is a hockey fan and we were in Toronto a few years back and went to see the Stanley Cup in its little home, which is like a cross between a big safe and a fortress. It’s quite impressive.

    • cusi77 says:

      Morgain__ I went to your site some hours ago… I can wait to read your blog about WORK OF ART.

      It is me or Nicole is LuAnn niece?

      • cusi77 says:

        Pardon… LuAnn’S niece.

      • MorgaineSwann says:

        That’s a good question. It doesn’t say anything to that effect in her bio, but I had her pegged as an upper class type since she’s working for Ralph Lauren. It wouldn’t surprise me if that is LuAnn’s niece.

        • CuckooforCocoaPuffs says:

          I found a picture of them together at some event in the Hamptons – google Nicole Nadeau and it shows on the photos… good catch!

          Since I just watched that episode the other day, she looked very familiar, but I am not sure that I would have made the connection

        • 2Stupid says:

          Andy Cohen wrote on his blog that it is Luanne’s niece. He did clarify that she tried out and made it, without any influence of the Countess. I guess he felt the need to show there wasn’t any favortism.

    jill dumps on kelly. calls ramona, kelly and luann liars after the taping


    • katiecoo says:

      Looks like that was last year? She called Luann a ‘baby liar”?!?!

      • Jennifer says:

        It was 2009 I ve always wondered how Kelly and LuAnn can consider her a sincere friend after all the crap she has spewed about them, I am assuming she never apologized ( we all know she didn’t) So how can they even trust her or back her?

      • Jennifer says:

        oh my god B on View just said real falling out reason w JZ is because Jill told castmates NOT to film with B because it would help her get own show!

        • Tootie says:

          really interesting! I wonder if I can find that clip somewhere?
          I had read previously that part of the reason for the “feud” was that Jill was pissed that she did not get her own show, or get a joint show with B, so she refused to film with B AT ALL in the early part of this season, to try to block any possible use of footage of the two of them together in, or to promote, B’s new show. Spiteful. This was why, for example, she refused to have lunch with B when she called, and why she refused to talk with her at Ramona’s – she said she didn’t have her notes, but what she meant was, I can’t be on camera with you.
          Now apparently, it sounds like that rumor is true, plus some – Jill she tried to get others to do this too. Wow! thanks for sharing.

          • Tootie says:

            wait! this might also be the reason Alex offered or B asked Alex for Alex to deliver the “I’m done” message – b/c Jill wouldn’t film with B! I can’t remember the timeline exactly, but couldn’t that be it?

      Then Jill, who’s in the middle, kicks Kelly out of bed on purpose then blames her for damaging her floor when she lands on it and yells “LEAVE!”. So she can be alone and gossip with the Countess without the distraction of mental illness and gum berries messing up her designer sheets.

    • Hooked On Housewives says:

      @Kat~ Jill is always contradicting herself. Just reading that makes me sick. She makes me sick.

    • Shadowsnomore says:

      Oh the spin, spin, spin! I almost had an aneurysm when she said she couldn’t have “anticipated” the Kelly situation. Ramona and Bethenny both spoke to Jill on the phone a few hours before she left NY! She knew the Kelly situation and didn’t care. Jill had to make her grand entrance and gesture! And I don’t know what the hell show she was watching but I (and most everyone else) never saw 4 against one. What we saw was Kelly against everyone! I am so sick of Kelly and Jill trying to shovel that systematic bullying shit. They are trivializing and polluting a real life problem for some. All to spin their pathetic, bullshit lies! Sorry for the rant but tis bitch really pisses me off!

      • katiecoo says:

        She would have used Kelly, if she was still there, to have someone on her side to bitch about all the other girls to…and have her do her bidding. And since she couldn’t use her in this way, Kelly and her nervous breakdown were expendable. Her “need” to “make peace” trumped over her friend being escorted first class back to the US because of a medical emergency (yes a psychiatric emergency is still considered medical). Self serving Narcissistic sick bitch. And Bobby going right along with him like he has no mind of his own. I still can’t get over his “I can’t believe it…I can’t believe it!”. What you idiot? You can’t believe what? You knew THEY would be there, you knew YOU would be there.

        It was as if he was trying to “give” Jill the reaction he thought THEY were supposed to give. When they were sitting there like normal people would in that situation–in SHOCK. It was all just so absurd. And shame on him for his codependent cluelessness. I have no patience for that crap either.

    • Jillousyness says:

      Yeah, I couldn’t stomach it either so Mrs. O’Neil had to set the record straight. hehe. Mrs. O’Neil says the damnest things and calls ’em as she sees them. I love her and she loves me.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

  24. cusi77 says:

    I would like to thank Jill Zarin for appear this season without the mask she wore in previous season. So, we could see how deceitful, conniving, vile a human being can be and for having able to learn that bad behavior is still recognizable and bad actions do not go unpunished.

    This sociaty amazes me in many labels -me, comming from a sociaty where privilege and inpunity is comun. I have learn trough RHONY, about American real values still prevail.

    With Jill Zarin childish behavior I have to confess: When I think she has done her worst… She come the very following day with something biger!

    The reason I feel grateful (somehow) is because I had the opportunity to know Lynn and her magnificent blog and ethics!

    I am sure, there are a lot of people who share this feeling… with Lynn I feel most of us have had the opportunity to feel in one certain moment the one on one. She is always available, kind, warm… Isn’t that the reason we come back for more?

    I still hate JZ.

    But have a lot of respect and love for Lynn

      You are so right about Jill’s mask (s). She put the “happy” (fake happy) mask on many times this season and it didn’t fit anymore. Alex pointed it out at least once. At the party where Simon was supposed to have her back. Actually she pointed it out right to Jill’s face at Jen’s aka “I’m skinny so hire me not the fat ugly event planner over there” party.

  25. Shadowsnomore says:

    Goodnight All. Look forward to the reunion, Lynn’s blog and all the comments. See ya later!

    • katiecoo says:

      Very interesting article..thanks! I’d never heard this “well sourced rumor” before:

      Andy Cohen, Bravo’s senior vice president of programming (and reunion referee), immediately shoots me down when I tell him that I heard a well-sourced rumor that Zarin had become so difficult between Seasons 2 and 3 that they considered firing her.

      • MorgaineSwann says:

        I heard that – she was holding out for more money and almost got axed. I wish they had – and I hope they do. Jill and Kelly need to go, Bethenny needs to stay, or they should scrap the whole show.

    • Shadowsnomore says:

      Was on the way to bed when I caught your link post. Read it and all I’ll say for now is Wow! Very interesting interview!

    • Kat says:

      That was a good read.

    • Jillousyness says:

      I love it when Kelly says “She’s doing and saying things that are out of character to stay on the show.” Oh, like Kelly saying she was forced to go on the trip or having a nervous breakdown is good for her career? Yeah you can tell Jill and Kelly are on a mission to try and get Alex off of the show. I’d say Alex is in a much safer position than Kelly is.

      • A former Jill fan says:

        You know, it seems like she would realize that people might be harder on her when she claims she’s acting badly on purpose to stay on the show. Then again, it’s Kelly! bad is good, down is up… LOL! 😛

      • MickeyMouth says:

        That statement stood out to me as well. I just thought it was another example of Jill speaking through Kelly’s mouth. My next chop should really be Kelly as Charlie McCarthy sitting on Jill’s lap. It’s like she has turrets or something throwing out Jillisms and non sequiturs.

        • Viki55 says:

          So true so true! I thought the same thing. So many phrases Jill uses Kelly uses.

        • Annie1033 says:

          Exactly what I thought, Mickey. First off, that sentence was FAR too coherent to originate from Kelly….She may be completely stupid, but we’re not.
          And Jill using the systematic bullying phrase in that other interview….
          I think they’ve been reading each other’s stuff and Jill’s been calling her every day so that they could work out their “angle” on this whole thing. We know Kelly isn’t above that as she blatantly solicited “lines” she could “use” against the other women for the reunion.
          I couldn’t hate these two idiots more. I just couldn’t.

      I’d have more respect for the article if it hadn’t completely ignored uber popular Sonja Morgan’s existence!

      “no one will say a word about the not-quite-seventh housewife, event planner Jennifer Gilbert, who appeared on the show this season, but was not officially cast as a regular.”

      See, I can count, and there are 7 official housewives including Sonja, and no matter how much Jill tires to shove her bitchy sidekick Jen down our throats, she’s the 8th wheel at best, the little we saw of her we disliked, and apparently the producers liked her even less, as even she admits then threw most of her on the editing room floor, unusable footage.

  26. katiecoo says:

    Why is it, the Countess with all her Cosmpolitan-ness calls her French boyfriend “Zzhhack” vs. the french pronunciation “Jacques” pronounced more “Zzzhock” (make sense?).

    And Jill pronounces Mario’s name like “Maarray-o”. Even though she’s been friends with Ramona 15 years who pronounces his name correctly as “Mahrio”. Small things that bug me.

    • A former Jill fan says:

      I have wondered about that too. maybe they’ve agreed to americanize the name?

    • Quincy IL says:

      I have trouble with my husband’s name and we’ve been married for 34 years. It’s Farsi/Persian, but that’s no excuse. My own mother called me, “Kath tha leen,” when my name is “Kathleen.” I think we get into a rut and can’t climb out.

    • Tootie says:

      Not that I am a fan of the Countess, but I think it actually is “Zhack” (versus “Zhock”), but the “Zhock” pronunciation is acceptable in some regions too.

    • MorgaineSwann says:

      That’s an East Coast thing, saying “mary0” instead of “mahrio.” I hated it. The first time I heard it, I thought they were calling this guy “marion” and it didn’t make any sense.

    Keep blogging! Obviously people are here who love it.

      Thank you so much for your essays and analysis. I read all of your articles and found them thought provoking.

      Do we all have a touch of narcissism and paranoia? I think we probably need a little of each for survival. We probably are watching these people on TV because they have these traits and it makes drama. Bravo would have a hard time making a reality show out of many of our less quirky lives.

      Thank you Angel, and I am a BIG fan of yours! Fascinating blogs!

    • Quincy IL says:

      Hmmmmmmmm…. I am down here in farmland USA. I have no contact with Lynn or anyone involved in the Silex Celebration in my beloved Chicago last Sat, but I am curious about the attempt of Jill Zarin to stop the events. First of all, who does that? Who has the gall to tell other people who they should meet and not meet? Oh, wait, we are speaking of Jill Zarin. She sends email to Kelly telling her that birds are speaking to Jill and that Kelly can’t be friends with Bethenny. She tries to stop the reality stars from taking a fantastic trip with Ramona, she tries to lure people from one party so she can gossip, she find people toxic and has to rid them from the planet Zarin.

      There were two events: one in the bookstore and a second at a bar. Surely, Jill didn’t call the bar and tell the manager not to allow a party in his place of business. Surely, Jill didn’t call the bookstore and try to have a costars book signing cancelled. Surely, Jill didn’t contact Lynn and ask Lynn not to go to the event.

      I don’t think Jill would call Alex because as we all know Jill has eliminated the rotation of Alex around planet Zarin due to toxicity. I think… Jill called Simon, the really bad wing man. Yep, Jill the sultry seductress in a short dress, with hair extensions. and 1962 Cleopatra eye makeup called Simon and asked him to have nothing to do with the people on “I hate Jill Zarin.” Jill has a history of controlling men. She does it with Bobby in ways that Danielle Staub could appreciate. She tried to do it with Jason, but he was too normal to fall for her act. She fails with Mario and that makes her very mad. She seems to feel that Simon can be manipulated because she dislikes Alex and knows that it will hurt Alex if Jill is successful in controlling Simon, Simon is a pawn in the chess match with the White Queen Alex.

      Is there any chance that I can get a job as a clairvoyant on any of the Bravo shows?

      Bethenny didn’t contact Bobby directly during his illness or during the f

    Good morning, I wanted to reply to one of the posters who asked about the Art Contest from Bravo last night on the last page of the blog, but I had trouble with posting there.

    I was surprised that Bravo used the same formula for the Art show as they do the runway models and the cooking show, but I guess that formula is proven and people respond well to it. I have also seen that formula on HGTV and it’s design talent contest that runs in the summer.

    I thought that all of the artists had something unique going for them. It’s sad to see someone go home the first week so we don’t have the opportunity to watch them evolve during the series. Artists are strange birds in general. Bravo had taped interviews with the contestants and they went for the peacocks and woodpeckers this time. The scope of personalities range from OCD to borderline personality disorder so we are going to see a lot of their work process and free time interactions over the next few weeks.

    I’m looking forward to the show and I probably would have sent the architect home because that painting was wall paper and not a portrait as the judge stated. The winner of the week had a lot of help from his subject as she is a performance artist so she gave him the material that he needed for the death art. I wish someone would have noted that because the subject does make the painting, even if the subject is grass.

    The show made me want to paint and I’m going to start this evening… or maybe right now.

    This blog makes me want to write. It must be the influence of the excellent writers here…

    Stay creative …. and productive…

    • error 404 says:

      it was interesting, but I was surprised to see it so closely resemble Project Runway.

      Even Top Chef and Sheer Genius have quick challenges or something to mix it u a bit.

      and as usual, Bravo gets a room full of amazing people, and focus more on who they are and how they interact with each other, than what they make.

      Oh, in case you are wondering… the Judging is VERY commercial based. It’s all gallery owners and collectors. Basically all the artists are judged on how likely it would be for their piece to sell today in a gallery.

      In other words… Van Gogh would have been voted off the first episode! lol

    • anniieee says:

      Hey Quincy,
      Nice comment….”Artists are strange birds in general” I so resemble that remark 🙂 Have the pre-requisite ADHD and dyslexia and so Right brained that my head leans to one side…but love my job–love my students and am so very critical of my art. Found a few on the show last night that were pretentious–not trained–or not creative… Wish the judges were different–not impressed. They spout the spout but can’t walk the walk. It is going to be an interesting season. “All things that count-can’t be counted” and “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” Einstein.

        Nicole is Luanne’s neice, I think. Found pictures of her with Luanne and I’m pretty sure she was one of the girls with Luanne when she met with Kelly (and Max) and watched her “let her hair down”.. (still makes me laugh)

  31. Anitabee says:

    For the record I think that whoever Jill hired to do her PR hates her more than we do.

    Doesn’t it seem as if they have done everything in their power to make Jill Zarin look like the biggest dumbass in the world? What PR company would EVER allow a client to run their harpy mouth unchecked like they have.

    Lynn, you have my support. I will NEVER fall for any of Jill’s tactics. I am livid and outraged at her attempts of bullying you. AS IF she could take you on. Her little trolls on this site will be ignored by the real readers of your blog. We will not take their bait.

    Granted some mentally challenged people will fail for Jill lame attempts at sympathy but on the other hand, Jill’s PR got you a lot of free press and those blogs saw your readers out there commenting our support of you. In the end, you have achieved the one thing that Jill Zarin covets the most — something she never had and never will be — being POPULAR and well liked.

    In a month’s time Bravo will decide who to have back. Then Jill will call off her flying monkeys. Things will go back to normal. With us hating on Jill and Jill hating on how she can’t control anything or anyone.

    • error 404 says:


      funny because it’s true.

      She’s her own worst enemy!

      Note to Jill and her cracker-jack PR team: it would be a whole lot easier to forgive you if you stuck to one story:

      “I love Bethenny” “she was awful to me” “I want Bethenny back” “she a mean girl” “I wish Bethenny well” “She a media whore who abused us all”

      OMG JIll… even Kiki sticks to one personality…a horrible excuse for a human being personality… but just one. Kiki will go to her grave claiming Bethenny is the devil and that Kiki never did a wrong thing in her life. Yeah, we all now it’s a lie, but at least it’s just one story she sticks with.

      • anniieee says:

        I’m not sure kellysmelly sticks to one personality. Each time she leaves the room (for any length of time) a new personality shows up and her face is greasier and her hair is slimier. (is that a word)

    I feel a lot better about posting on the “I hate Jill Zarin” site today.

    Bravo let Teresa’s blog with the secret message stand. FU Haters… a secret message to the followers of Bravo who aren’t happy with the behavior of Jill and Teresa.

    So… if Teresa and Jill can act like they do, I feel justified in hating them and writing posts on a site that recognizes their bad behavior. I hope they read this site daily.

    • Jillousyness says:

      Well said and I agree with you. I love coming here to get out my frustration and yes, hatred of Jill and Kelly and Teresa and now Ashely. Somehow it lets me get out all the pent up anger at watching totally unacceptable behavior and everybody here gets it.

    LMAO. Bravo posted my response to Theresa’s blog. They HAD to see what I was doing, right? I don’t want to make you wade through all the drivel. If you didn’t see it on Lynns Jill Zarin’s Tweets blog this is what I posted:
    Frankly Theresa I was surprised by part of this weeks blog.
    Upset as Ashley may be by Danielle there is nothing responsible in how she is acting.
    Caroline is only encouraging her by saying she is just protecting her family.
    Kiss kiss though. At least you’re trying to be positive.
    You did pick a good Godmother. Dina is my fav NJ Hwife.
    Other than you of course!
    Unhappy people cause a lot of trouble. Happy people contribute to the world.
    Theresa keep up the good work.
    Obviously you are a happy person.

  35. A former Jill fan says:

    Lynn, excellent post again! I just read it. I must admit, though I should not have been, knowing Jill, that I was surprised to find that Jill tried to stop the Chicago event for Alex and Simon. You didn’t elaborate if it was the book signing or the cocktail party, no matter, but for Jill to think herself important and powerful enough to be able to try to sabotage someone else’s event is unconscionable. But we’ve seen that behavior before from her haven’t we? It all backfired on her too. Poor Jill! 😦

  36. Melinda says:

    oh you must be kidding??? Jill is actually mad because you had a nice reception for Alex and Simon? Because you have a loyal group of followers that feel the same way you do for Jill?

    Christ on a cracker, Jill has lost her marbles……and no one will play with her!

    love ya Lynn!

  37. butterisafruit says:

    If Jill had any smarts, she’d wish her sister housewives well, especially with their book signings. She’d be encouraging people to attend Alex and Simon’s receptions.

    She just doesn’t GET IT.

  38. amy17 says:

    Is big sister watching? I’m so scared. Also Jill should do some soul searching and try to change the 99% of her personality that causes her friends to dump her. Or she could go buy another $16,000 purse to fill her void. Nice values.

    OMFG.. Jill is delusional!… but the more she spins, the more I realize she’s gonna come off badly tonight

  41. Olivia says:

    Like the end of a good novel, I am waiting for tonight’s Reunion show. I am just sorry that Bravo is not allowing the full two hours to occur back to back since it will break up the continuity somewhat to have them separated by a whole week.

    What’s with those green shoes Ms. Hateful Face is wearing? Channeling Peter Pan is she? The one thing about wearing colored shoes is that they draw attention to your feet which is not the idea when wearing a designer dress.

    The clips are showing that much of what Jill said about other cast members was indeed used by Kelly on the fateful trip. Kelly just mimiced whatever Jill said to make her ridiculous points and you can see Jill’s nasty hand all over the outburst. Unfortunately, Kelly is much too dumb to see through Jill and her desire to defend her, along with her hatred toward Bethenny, explains her outbursts. “Channeling the devil” was said by Jill in reference to Alex and Kelly used that which may have looked bizarre but was an actual comment coming from Jill. No wonder they thought she was out and out crazy if they were unaware of the origin. The same thing could be said of the “chef/cook” comment because my money was on Jill saying the same about Bethenny as Jill heated up the controversy in her quest to destroy her.

    Watching Jill outshout and interrupt the others is not going to buy her any new fans. Impoliteness is not a virtue.

    • Dolce says:

      As Alex so wisely said, “civility would be nice.”

    • Scorpiosue says:

      I’m gonna say it. I actually don’t mind Jill’s green shoes. :):) It’s just the wearer that bothers me.

      • Scorpiosue says:

        Interesting bit from the article. Kelly says, ” “I think Alex is in desperation mode,” she says with a sigh. “She’s doing and saying things that are out of character to stay on the show.” Boy, doesn’t that sound familiar?? Jill and Kelly must sit down and re-hash all the time.

    • SusanS88 says:

      Olivia I believe you are incredibly close to the Truth here. I completely believe that Jill fed Kelly all this BS. And did it on purpose! And convinced mental midget (love that!) Kelly that it would increase her popularity. I can totally see Jill doing that. And it backfired on both of them! Idiots!

        I know, I used to enjoy wathching Joy’s show, now I can’t watch because she sounds so much like JZ.
        Hate to say it but Joy lost a viewer because of Jill, (and don’t get me started on when Jill is a guest!).

        • lillybee says:

          My niece is a producer on Joy’s HLN show and says that she is extremely nice. In the past she worked for Nancy Grace and thinks Nancy is a bitch.

        I’m soooo with ya, Dolce, on the Joy Behar thing. I really can’t stand the sound of her voice, either. Like nails on a chalkboard. It wasn’t until this season of watching RHWoNYC that it dawned on me as to why- it’s because she sounds so much like JZ.

        Don’t even get me started on why in the world HLN offered JB her own show. All she does on the JB Show is regurgitate dribble from the View or other day old news stories. Total Yawn.

  43. GrnWave03 says:

    I love Lynn’s Blog!
    What cracks me up – I was watching the past season and Jill was using “shell-shocked” in that season too!

    Kelly started using it when she was describing her trip to “Scary Island”..
    Funny how she and Jill also used channeling the devil as well..
    Maybe they are sharing a brain (err PR person)

  44. Olivia says:

    What we may fail to appreciate is Jill’s full intent since the beginning of this show to be named “top dog”. She had an agenda and “Housewives” was the vehicle to serve as her “jumping off” place to begin the climb. Up until Season 3 she honestly felt as though she was the “star” and that her behavior only enhanced her chances to become another Kate Gosselin, making special appearances, sitting in with the ladies on The View, co hosting with Regis, etc.

    Instead Bravo went with Bethenny and the war was on. That desire has not faded far from Jill’s mind and she has used whatever means still available to get back onto that bandwagon even to the point of suggesting sabotage and threats to bring her message home. But the damage has been done and it is irreparable. Once the audience determines a fake it rarely changes. No matter how much touching up of her image is done, few, if any, will buy into the “new Jill”. Humble and contrite are nowhere in this lady’s lexicon and a personality makeover is not going to change her.

    Even if they decide to bring her back next season, it will be more of the same and she can only exist if she has a target to play off. You just cannot make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. She is who she is.

    • Capiche says:

      I agree. With these reality stars, their image is everything. That’s why their fame is so fragile. Unlike real celebrities, they can’t produce a great album, or be in a blockbuster movie that will make everyone move past what they’ve done. And what you see now with Jill is the last gasps of a drowning woman. She’s trying to pull herself back up because deep down she realizes her image is severely and probably irrecoverably damaged. So she’s spinning, lying, threatening, pulling out all her tricks to stay on top. To be relevant. And to be liked.

    • PFinFL says:

      Jill doesn’t understand that it’s the fans that make you or break you. Honestly, she needs to go. I’m sick of hearing her excuses. I love Ramona because she decided to renew herself this season and really tries. I could see her trying. Jill won’t even own up to the way she treats people or how she talks to people (rather over people). If she would honestly try to ACKNOWLEDGE and then try….maybe….but with people like her…sometimes it’s a little too late. She so reminds me of my mom, whom I’ve given so many chances to change until someone close to me told me that she will never change because she refuses (pride) to acknowledge. So, you either have a relationship as is or not. I choose not because it’s too toxic <–I know, that word again.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Agree that Jill thought she was to be the star, center of attention character in the first season. As soon as another housewife starts standing out – Bethenny and then Alex – she had to bring them down! Ramona isn’t a factor (yet) cause Jill has known her a long time and doesn’t believe she is competition. And she incorrectly thought popularity is determined by a number and not a person – so she got the two vapid morons on “her side”. Sonja navigated her first season correctly by being neutral and nice.

  45. jillpinchesloaves says:

    OMG! Get thee to the Advocate interview site and see how Jill subtly implies that she may just be forced to commit suicide (easy to intuit and read between the lines of visibly fake Jill)…because mean posters are just so…Mean!

    She evens posts one of the first reply comments so obviously written by her as….(drum roll, please…Lynn…you will love this… DAN OF CHICAGO.

    Yes, [Jill (DAN of CHICAGO) Zarin] of fake Amazon reviews has faked yet another posting and this time,
    SHE’S A MAN! Kelly the tranny must have rubbed off on her!

    It’s a three-page-interview and she is so full of it, I had to go wipe MY OWN ASS,
    after reading it. Yep, it’s that bad.

    Here’s the link:

    • Dolce says:

      Jill responds to query: “From clips, it looks tense.”

      “There were definitely highs and lows. There were peaks and valleys. I’m not sure, but I think it might actually turn into three episodes. It was so fraught with drama. I don’t know how it it’s edited, I just hope my voice comes through.”

      How can a fog horn not come through? From the clips you can see nothing has changed; she’s loud, talks over everyone and is extremely overbearing. Typical Jill behavior.

      Does anyone remember any scene in three years where she is having a good time, laughing with others or just be jovial without snarky comments? I can’t.

    • Viki55 says:

      Question on the Dan thing. The commenter “Jill Damage” asks the Advocate to do an IP search on Dan but “Jill Damage” never actually states that she/he herself has done one proving Dan is really Jill. Or am I mising it?

  46. PFinFL says:

    Thanks for writing this. I know that Jill is jealous that she doesn’t have the fan support like Alex and Simon. But she will NEVER understand why that is. I know that it’s killing her that Alex is standing up for herself and telling it like it is…..oh, I can’t wait to see pt 1 tonight!

  47. JZ in PGH says:

    First of all, Congrats Blackhawks! I live in Pittsburgh and I know what it is like….IT IS AWESOME! A few months ago I actually touched “THE CUP” and had a picture taken with it. Every time I look at that picture I have to laugh….I thouched the same cup that ended up at the bottom of Mario’s pool. Now I know that really ticked off the rest of hockeydom but LIGHTEN UP PEOPLE. Anyway, enjoy your time with Stanley.

    As for Jill….Lord have mercy! Here is my two cents. I’m following Bethenny where ever she goes. I hope to see Alex and Ramona on her show. You always know where Ramona stands and I have really come to like Silex. When “Bethenny Getting Married” comes to an end put the 3 of them on a show. I’m liking Sonja, maybe a few cameos to see how she fits. It would be funny, smart and REALLY authentic.

    Let Jill, Luann, and Kelly duke it out. Jill can send Kelly on a blind date with a nice Jewish boy whose idea of a fun date would be to drink beer, shoot pool and then go to the Met. Luann could give Kelly a few pointers on how to attract a man with manners befitting a Countess. I’d spend hard earned money to see Lulu deal with the “pool hall crowd”. It will end up as a comedy or cancelled. Cancelled is my guess.

      jill is a disgrace. Pure and simple. She should be ashamed of playing the victim card, Kelly too, and making a mockery out of bullying!

    • Scorpiosue says:

      So does Jill not watch the show at all? Because obviously Bobby is lying by saying that Alex said she wasn’t going to apologize. Alex said, “I need to talk to Jill.”

      That article is so full of bs that my living room is starting to smell.

    • kokuanani says:

      I hope everyone here goes over there and calls Jill out for the liar she is.

      It infuriates me that various “media” give her a forum to non-stop spout her lies. Why aren’t they at least giving equal time to Bethenny, Alex and, yes, Lynn?

  50. Olivia says:

    That Advocate article is so full of bullshit! She manages to slam Bethenny and Alex and is still unable to adequately explain that “surprise” visit when she was well aware of Kelly’s meltdown and how she chose to ignore it.

    How can she say that Bobby told her that Alex was not going to apologize when Alex said no such thing to Bobby. She said she would talk to Jill. How did Bobby misinterpret that? Either Bobby is lying or Jill is deliberately looking to place the blame elsewhere.

    Then she goes on to brag about her dedication to the gay community as a means to atone for her sins. Give me a break! Is anyone buying into that line of crapola? People who must insist on telling us how great they are usually are not. This woman makes me sick to my stomach.

    • PFinFL says:

      She also mentions being a grandmother and that viewers don’t see that side…and that the other hw’s don’t have her kind of family or do….what??? I’m confused as to what she is trying to sell with that statement.

    • CarrieCinKY says:

      I would have to say, please pass the advil this way as well….
      Does Jill’s pity party for herself EVER end? I’m so tired of her interviews, it’s the same thing, over and over. Her Advocate interview was the same.
      At what point do you accept responsibility for your actions?
      Jill also made the comment in a recent article, “What I saw on the Island was 4 against 1. Bullying isn’t ok, systematic or otherwise.”….. Wtf?
      Kelly was NOT bullied!
      Does this irritate anyone else? It makes me SO angry!

      • Annie1033 says:

        She then got a tweet from someone saying how funny it would be if Sonja, Ramona, Alex and Bethenny made a “response” PSA and Ramona tweeted something back like, “That might not be a bad idea!”

        HA!! If they DID do something like that, in no way shape or form should it be sincere….they should do something funny, to acknowledge the absurdity of all of this bullshit.

    Now that I think about it, it sounds as if “families from Chicago and Alabama” is Jill’s way of referring to 2 sympathy cards with each of those postmarks. How many people would throw away the 44 cents for a stamp on her?
    Trying to connect a Chicago postmark to Alex and Simon’s book signing in Chicago? Al Sharpton! Al Sharpton!

  54. Olivia says:

    You have to hand it to Sonja in how she is handling the press. She made an appearance on GMA days after the arrest, touched lightly on the incident, and said she was advised not to discuss it. Good PR move.

    She did not get into a “pissing contest” with the Southampton Police, nor did she offer any lame excuse for her behavior. She then disappeared from view and waits for the whole thing to die down.

    Jill could have taken a page from Sonja’s book and just let the whole thing become inconsequential but instead she used Twitter, her Facebook, and spoke to any news outlet that would have her, beefing up her complaints while adding “threats” and now “bullying” to her lamentations. The same with Kelly who began her epic Twittering the day following the first showing of the St. John’s trip as it cast her in a poor light.

    I am still not totally convinced that Kelly is altogether crazy since she was “smart” enough to create a phony PSA about bullying in the hopes of casting doubt into the minds of viewers that what they saw was her victimization and an attempt to cast the others as true villains.

    Both these women may not be the sharpest knives in the toolbox but they are fighting for their “professional lives”.

    • A former Jill fan says:

      Sonja is a classy lady. I just hope that she does what’s right and if she was indeed over the legal alcohol limit while driving, she should set herself up as an example to her daughter and other children by pleading guilty and taking whatever punishment the court deems fit. None of that no contest crap! If Sonja did that, I believe she’d have the respect of most viewers.

    • error 404 says:

      no, Kiki is the worst kind of crazy, in denial crazy.

      just get yourself on some meds Kiki, and everyone’s life will improve. Tons of people have mental illness, it’s not shameful, or something you did to yourself. It’s just a fact. Basically, Kiki has cut her hand slicing a bagel, but instead of going to the emergency room for stitches, she’s spend 100 times more effort on convincing everyone that she didn’t cut herself and that blood gushing form her hand is normal, and or the result of buying bad bagels form an evil bakery that is out to get her.

      her enormous ego will never admit to needing help. She’s a liability on society.

    • PFinFL says:

      You are so right. Sonja said that as soon as she is allowed to speak about it, she will and that she won’t hide anything or make excuses. Honestly, Jill needs to take examples from her & Ramona!

      • boston02127 says:

        Sonja is the smart one, staying neutral. When she has spoken up she seems to be honest about things so far. I like Sonja.
        (so long as she doesn’t have to drive me home).

  55. Jessie says:

    About Jennifer Gilbert…JILL is the one pushing for her to be on. JILL wanted everyone to just LOVE Gilbert because they are friends and probably assumed Gilbert would be so popular it would give her “ammo” in getting rid of Alex and Simon! Thank God nobody liked her and all I can hope is she never appears on my screen again. She really just rubbed me the wrong way…maybe cuz she is friends with Jill lol. It just seemed so much a act she was putting on and even her self-proclaimed snarkyness was deliberate to get attention. Thankfully, nobody fell for her or it.

    • Olivia says:

      It appears that the first time Jill and Jennifer met was when Jill was planning that awful skating party that included name dropping Donald Trump.

      She looks like someone who Jill can control which is probably the primary reason Jill wants her included. Since she controls both Kelly and Lu Ann to some extent, and Ramona always remains the wild card in most situations, she probably plans on having Jennifer in a minor role backing her up and appearing as a member of “Team Jill”. As we know, Jill does very little by way of altruism so my money is that Jennifer herself, desperate to hold her own Golden Apple, is in compliance with Jill in hopes of staying viable.

      So far, Jennifer appears rather dull and someone quite capable of putting people down when it suits her. Two cases in point: the unnecessary comments made about Ramona’s wedding planner. and calling out to Alex who left Kelly’s party by telling her how great her hair looked that night. That was not meant as a compliment.

      Don’t like Jennifer.

      • error 404 says:


        Jill went into season 3 with an agenda:

        1. destroy Bethenny’s rep so no one will watch her show
        2. introduce Jen as a replacement to Alex
        3. build a story around my fabulous skating party, focusing on me, which will be the big season finale, like my charity last year
        4. show my family more, so we can get our own “secrets of a jewish family” spinoff show

        all four goals were missed. fail. fail. fail. fail.

      • Dolce says:

        I believe that Jennifer has to be careful in her relationship with Jill because of her business. One false move on Jen’s part and Jill would smear her name all over NYC. Her Save the Date business would be trashed. The best move for Jennifer would be to stay off the show, or make only minimal apperances. I don’t think the type of exposure she has exhibited so far is beneficial for her party planning business.

      • Jillousyness says:

        You expressed my exact feeling regarding Jennifer Gilbert. There’s just something about her that rubs me the wrong way and it’s not only her being friends w/Jill. I get bad vibes from her.

        • Kelly Looks Smelly says:

          I think Jen doesn’t come off well on camera for a couple reasons. She seems to lack that “it” factor that some other hw’s, such as B and R, have that make them likeable. Also, I hate to say it, but Jen just isn’t very telegenic. And let’s be honest- looking good on camera matters when you are trying to portray yourself as a glamorous NYC hw. She seems to be almost scowling sometimes, no?

          That’s my take on Jen.

      • Scorpiosue says:

        I really can’t make an opinion about Jen. I don’t think we’ve seen enough of her. She’s probably gotten about 5 minutes of air time, which doesn’t say much since she says that she filmed a lot.

        • DeeWhoLovesAlex says:

          But in just 5 minutes she insulted a woman (almost) to her face because of her own jealousy. Reminds me of someone….

    • emt2 says:

      Actually, at the book signing, Alex said that she really likes Jen and that she had met her prior to being on the show. They also hang out and have play dates. Jill is probably annoyed about that.

    • Squirrels says:

      Wouldn’t it be lovely if Jennifer replaces Jill?
      It would be worth the price of admission to watch Jill’s head explode!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Jill met Jen when she hired her for the cow on ice party. We need to give Jen a ton of credit – would you jump into that hot mess both at her house or on the island??? Plus she has only been shown with Jill, Kelly and LuAnn – where she did try to say nice and neutral things.

  56. Hooked On Housewives says:

    Good morning Lynn. Good morning everyone. Outstanding blog Lynn. Right on the money. We have come to expect nothing less. Now with that said, I will begin my reading and responding.

  57. Hooked On Housewives says:

    I have some questions for the board. Question about old news actually.

    I noticed that Jillousy entered the Pantene contest. The one about being the first Pantene reality hair star. My question: Wasn’t this contest about the most beautiful “real” hair? How do you think Jillousy was allowed to enter if she wears all types of “fake” hair on her head?

    • Olivia says:

      Some of those “bumpits and weaves” she wears appear to be alive!

      Donald Trump with whatever sits on his forehead has a better shot of being the Pantene Girl.

  58. Susan says:

    First of all, I like your blog. I found it via a link someone posted on the bbs at bravo’s message board. Secondly, this is more an observation about both RHONY and RHONJ but I’m bugged by certain housewives (KellyJillTeresa) declaring that anyone who posts what *they* perceive as a negative comment is a hater. Really? When someone asks a question or points out something you don’t like, they’re not automatically haters. This is reverse…systematic…bullying! That’s it!

    These women are attempting to deflect negative attention by accusing the commenter of being a hater which is not necessarily true, is it? They’re accusing and namecalling (bullying) in a systematic way, aren’t they?

    If you’ll excuse me, I need to go make a youtube video now.


    • Kelly Looks Smelly says:

      Yes, I believe in debate/reasoning the deflection that you speak of is called making an ad hominim attack on someone.

      Rather than address legitimate issues raised by the “opposition”, for lack of a better term, with reasoning, logic, facts, etc., JZ , KKB and others with weak minds resort to picking on the person making the argument.

      It is pathetic and juvenille and any high school kid on a Junior Varsity debate team could see right through it.

      I am positive we will see more of this tonight at the reunion. Afterall a leopard can’t change its spots.

  59. Tootsie says:

    Has anyone else noticed that the top pictures of Jill looks a lot like Fanny Brice? For you young whippersnappers, that was the woman who played Baby Snooks. Still not with me? Never mind.

    • Olivia says:

      Unfortunately, I do! But I always thought she looks more like Huntz Hall from the Dead End Kids.

      • shantygal says:

        Forehead slap! That’s it. Hahahaha. Also resembles the old cartoon of the schmow (schmoe?) picture of just the shifty eyes & nose hanging over the fence.

  60. jillpinchesloaves says:

    OMG, how unbelievably gross. Jill does it again. Previously writes her own Amazon book review and now for the Advocate interview, one of the first comments to post was “DAN OF CHICAGO…”
    Yeah, right. Jill is so incredibly see-through. Chicago? Really? Okay Jill Dan, your new name, I’ll go with it. Channel your inner-man! Inner DAN-MAN!

    You’ve got to read this 3-page-interview. I can’t believe she makes so many not-so-subtle inferences to suicide and ‘how bullying can lead to suicide.’ Is she trying to warn us that she may be pushed over the edge? Please, she is so full of pock-marked bologna that she’s still got the red deli wax casing stuck to her shoes and she’s tracking it everywhere she hobbles …or skates in her fatty bologna-pink back-fat-exploding skate dress!

    I can’t believe she alludes to Gay constitutional and humanistic struggles as something with which she aligns her own perceived injustices. HOW DARE SHE! She is spewing the very HATRED that is so devisive. She is the one who harbors and breeds the hatred. There is not a FULL COLORED RAINBOW on her horizon, oh FREAKING HELL NO! She is like a snake slithering onto the Advocate site, with her forked tongue putting out feelers for any lovely souls she can con.

    Read it and weep folks…read it and weep.

    • Olivia says:

      She just cannot shut her mouth. Just can’t.

    • kokuanani says:

      This is clearly the work of one or more of those 4 fabulous “PR people” Jill hired.

      Seriously, I have no doubt that that’s what each of them is doing: churning out press releases and sending them around to various media outlets.

      It’s just disappointing to see how stupid some of these media are. Given how willing they apparently are to take Jill’s puffy press releases and publish them, we need a fleet of PR people to combat this crab.

  61. vgirl511 says:

    From the Jill interview at people.com

    Are you glad Jennifer Gilbert and Sonja Morgan joined the show?
    I really like Jennifer Gilbert a lot. She’s a very intelligent mom, successful, fun, very funny, has a snarky sense of humor, and I really enjoyed filming with her. Unfortunately, because there was so much stuff going on, she really didn’t make the cut. There were a lot of scenes that I filmed with her that never made the air.

    She was asked about Jennifer AND Sonya, however, she only spoke about Jennifer……Interesting.

  62. shantygal says:

    Lynn, congratulations to the Blackhawks and your cousin. So exciting! My city’s hockey team lives up to their name every year, “The Blues”. At least we have a few World Series and one Superbowl to brag about.

  63. CuckooforCocoaPuffs says:

    Kelly tweeted a link to the Daily Beast article, saying it tells the truth. Interesting. Clearly, Kelly processes the english language differently than most of it, because the author doesn’t seem to buy any of Kelly’s spin…

    Also loved that the NYT review of BGM calls KKB a “deranged nudnik”!

    I have got to get something done around here – can’t believe how much time I am spending reading the blog/comments.

  64. yesIwatchthiscrap says:

    I kind of wondered about Jennifer too. I can’t say she “rubed me the wrong way” like some of you. I just simply have no opinion of her. BUT I would have loved to see some storylines OTHER than the fighting. In a small way I feel for her, because they just introduced her as someone who is working for Jill and that was it.
    It just seems like they are trying to set it up for a season full of Alex and Jill fighting next season. That is the whole reason why Jill is dragging Alex into this “I’m being harrased” crap. She may not want Alex on the show, but she wants to be on the show so whatever way she can stay she use it.

  65. MickeyMouth says:

    I don’t think Jill Zarin wants Jen Gilbert because she can control her. Sonja does not look like a Jill follower to me. Jill is systematically trying to bully everyone off the show she can’t maniuplate.

    • MickeyMouth says:

      opps does want Jen Gilbert
      and how’d this get down here, – wonky blog making me wonky

      • Lolo says:

        I think Sonja is the “real deal” kind of socialite — I know she married into it, but she really does rub shoulders with the upper echelon. I think Jill is very jealous of that. Remember when Luann was introducing her and Jill was asking all kinds of questions about her and most tellingly, “Why don’t I know her”? And I LOVED it when Jill asked Sonja if she were wearin a Judith Lieber belt and Sonja said, no, Chanel. : )

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          I want to peek into Sonja’s home, closet, past and present – all in a good way! She is what I thought the show was supposed to be about from the beginning!

  66. Olivia says:

    Amazing. Women like Jill, Kelly, Theresa, Danielle, beg to be on tv yet when the criticisms of their behavior start appearing on blogs and Twitter to call those posting “fuckers and haters”. Very classy.

    What really gets my cheese in a twist are those morons who post their undying “love and support” for the behavior of these women as if how they are portrayed is normal. Even ho bag Danielle has supporters on her blog which raises the question: Why? What’s to admire here? The same with Theresa. What has she done that brings forth messages of affection besides overthrowing a table and screaming obscenities in front of a roomful of kids? The same with Jill. What is in her character that has bloggers boosting her behavior with warm words of support that leave me questioning the intellligence of these people who see nothing wrong?

    None of these ladies would ever be welcomed into our own circle of friends so it is mind boggling to find defenders of grifters, grafters, hustlers, and snakes being applauded for acting like this way. Puzzling.

  67. emt2 says:

    God morning everyone! Great blog Lynn.

    I wish that an interviewer in the Advocate would ask Jill about her recruitment of people for her team against her enemy. She did it with Ramona last year, making those tee shirts, and the tennis match all because Ramona didn’t invite her to a dinner party. She sent Kelly an email and said that she couldn’t be both friends with Jill and Bethenny. She said that she was happy that Alex wasn’t taking sides in the J vs. B battle but that if Alex wasn’t on her team then she was going to have problems. That is bullying.

    These are 3 good examples of bullying.

    Also her interview with the Advocate is stupid. Remember when she met Derek, Alex and Simon’s gay friend, and Jill went on and on about how gross he was and how gay he was! Not nice, Jill.

    And Ramona had confronted Jill about not saying goodbye to he at the Brooklyn fashion show, so why is Jill saying that she said goodbye to her. SHe did call Alex ugly and Jill claims that Alex isn’t a model. ALex was a model in Italy for years and she knew that because when she introduced Alex to Luann first season, Alex and Luann both spoke Italian to each other and talked about their modeling careers.

    Who are these interviewers? I wish they were more informed.

  68. emt2 says:

    Oh and Jill called Wendy Williams and complained that Wendy was taking B’s side because B had been a guest. Wendy put her in her place in a very playful yet direct way.

    • dee says:

      Meh. She treated Jill’s statement with kids gloves. I guess you have to do what you have to do to so that “celebrities” show up on your show. Take note that by me using the word “celebrity” when talking about Jill, or any of those housewives, I’m using the term verrrrrrrrryyyyyy loosely.

      • DeeWhoLovesAlex says:

        Hi dee. If you didn’t read yet, I am making my apology. Love your name. Friends?

    • Hooked On Housewives says:


      Jill is angry at Wendy Williams (who I do not care for) because Wendy is doing her job and schmoozing (sp) with all the housewives. What a total ass. Good on Wendy Williams for bringing it up though.

      Jillousy’s new tee shirt line…..I’m mad at Wendy Williams on the front. She channels the devil on the back.

      • emt2 says:

        I’m glad that she brought it up because it corroborates the accusation that Jill contacts shows to complain about Bethenny being a guest. She did it at the Today show, as well.

  69. jillpinchesloaves says:

    Here is Jill Zarin, faking a post as DAN FROM CHICAGO in the Advocate interview:


    I’d like to introduce you to JILL-DAN-MAN of “Chicago.”

    The she-he writes:

    Name: Dan
    Date posted: 6/10/2010 7:51:14 AM
    Hometown: Chicago

    Jill is the most genuine housewife on the show. I’d confide in her expecting her to keep my confidence. She’d give me sincere, helpful advice and share her own experience. Criticism of Jill over the Bethenny conflict appears staged by Bethenny groupies. After this season, I can’t stand Alex – so fake and embarrassingly desperate to be one of the “Popular Girls” (although it’s nice that her brown teeth have improved). Alex’s “courier of hate” role for Bethenny was un-pardonable. Bethenny’s callousness toward Jill has disappointed me – it cannot, as she and her pals have claimed, be solely attributed to hormones or personal crises. I still don’t know what to make of Kelly. LuAnn has impressed me with her strength after her divorce, although I still don’t care for her singing. Ramona is still weird, damaged-goods, desperate to be the victim queen, although a caring person under it all. Her husband Mario has not matured since second grade and is a snake not to be trusted.

  70. CuckooforCocoaPuffs says:

    I was wondering about that, too. I mean we all know people who see the world differently than we do – makes life interesting – but it is hard to imagine a person who looks at JZ, obnoxious, entitled, mean-spirited JZ, and see her as the heroine in this group. One theory in my fuzzy attic of a brain is that Bethenny is a woman who scares people – she is witty, smart, sarcastic, up front. She doesn’t take any bull and she calls people out on their behaviour. All qualities I like in a person, but she could intimidate a lot of people.

    One other theory – they’re not as smart as we are 🙂

    (Now if I don’t at least get the laundry done today, the kids are going commando tomorrow!)

    • CuckooforCocoaPuffs says:

      Oops – I posted this in the wrong place. Was in response to Olivia’s comment above. Sorry….

    • error 404 says:

      the one thing that Jill, Lulu and Kiki all have in common is that almost every word out of their mouths is bullcrap. Yes, someone like B who calls you on it is very intimidating.

      B does snark on everyone, but if you have a shred of self-confidence, you don’t care. So Bethenny Frankel doesn’t like my interior decorating, so what. Kiki and Jill cry for 3 days over it! hahahahaha idiots.

      • Scorpiosue says:

        And Bethenny doesn’t need her “notes” to talk to someone.

      • shantygal says:

        As demonstrated by Sonja when B asked her “what, were you a hooker?” at the Terror on the High Seas dinner. It didn’t bother confident Sonja at all, but Kelloca actually cried about it. “She called you a HOOKER, wah”.

    • Adgirl says:

      Don’t let them be interviewed by Kelly on the street for Gotham magazine – she WILL ask them about their underwear!

        or lack thereof……LOL

      • DeeWhoLovesAlex says:

        Adgirl really like your comments. Would like to say this in the best way possible. She was reading a script. She is so out of touch she did not understand it was not right to ask a young boy the questions she was asking. I think someone behind the camera must have been kind enough to point out this was not too cool.

  71. cusi77 says:

    Jill keeps diggin herself… how low can go lower?

  72. PFinFL says:

    There is another marathon on Bravo today leading up to tonights reunion. Amazing watching it again. I am finding things that I didn’t see the first time. Example: Kelly at lunch in the Hamptons with Jill and LuAnn and Jill starts GOSSIPING about Bethenny. So, I wait for Kelly to start her fingers in ear and LaLa-ing to say that she doesn’t want to be apart of gossiping. Of course, it doesn’t happen!

  73. Judy says:

    I hope they bring up Luann’s eavesdropping on private telephone conversations at the reunion and discuss the proper etiquette there.

    • yesIwatchthiscrap says:

      I love how so far Jill’s response to that is “I told her “friends” were there!” because that makes all the difference in the world. Oh and in that Advocate interview she trys to “clarify” that when she told Bethheny “we’re done”….she just meant that conversation. LOL nevermind she would tell other people that she didn’t want Bethheny in her life…..OR that she admited to LuLu that Bobby told her she made a mistake in cutting Bethheny off completely, she should have backed of. Now all of a sudden she is rewritting history.
      Doesn’t matter though because if you pointed this out to her she would have more excuses to overwrite it all.

      • Squirrels says:

        Didn’t you read Jill’s disclaimer? She’s completely misunderstood through bad editing.

        • yesIwatchthiscrap says:

          and I hope someone calls her out for that too. Alex and Simon said the same thing (only a portion of our
          lives was shown etc…..but she would just roll her eyes)….now she is trying it. I know that has been brought
          here before, but that is the one that still gets me.

      • Judy says:

        She didn’t say anything to Ramona!

  74. LuAnn says:

    So…no one’s mentioned yet that in the article Jill says she’s now a grandmother. Did Ally have a baby? Because she’s Jill’s only child, no?

    • LuAnn says:

      • xenophile says:

        Just finished watching, I think Bethenny did great addressing all the questions…but she looked a little uncomfortable – did you notice that ? Also thought it was interesting how its the first time (I’ve heard) B addresses how Jill was meddling with her show and that being the main reason they’re no longer friends.

          I have to wait another hour to see it. Is she up first?

          That said, why did Shari look so pissed off the whole time?

          • mariareads says:

            I don’t think they were that interested. It wasn’t something any of them could get their political rants in on. I never watch the View anymore. I am so over those women. I thought Joy/Whoopie were just miserable and I would be too if I had little Bethenny there and I looked like an “elephant” sitting there LOL! I don’t think there was anything wrong with the elephant remark by B. It was exactly spot on. If she’s thin too “fast” they make up stories. If she was heavy and looking much larger than she ever has, they would all be snarking. She probably meant what she said-you can’t win and with the public in general you really cannot win. Women are unkind to each other in this regard, don’t you think? I thought it was a good plug for her show and B was honest about it. She did a good job answering the question about being on reality shows before etc. She got her point across and I think women who tuned in to see her will be more inclined to watch her new show tonight. The real news was that she told the truth about JZ and what she did to sabotage B’s show. This woman is mean jealous and it is so typical of JillZ. Get lost, I say. Take your Bobby money and get lost in the Hamptons or better yet, offer your voice as a service to the Coast Guard as a fog horn. Would be very effective.

  76. Buffalo says:

    I can not believe this advocate article! How can Jill compare what she is going through to young children being bullied and gays being pushed to commit suicide. I am really disgusted! This is getting ridiculous. How do these reporters not call her out or laugh at her. She stated after last years reunion that Kelly shouldnt come back and she needs to repair her image. She said something along the lines of “Is fame more important than the safety of your life and childrens lives. JILL ZARIN BETTER NOT COME BACK!! There better be some media outlets out there that will destroy this interview, it is seriously disgusting.

    On a ligher note Congrats Lynn, Chicago and the Blackhawks!!! My hometown boy Kane scoring the winning goal =)

    I swear I’m not a stalker, LOL, I just find all of you incredibly smart and super funny!

    Anyway, I came to post a comment from an article on People.com from a poster that met Jill…Not surprised by what she had to say…

    nycgirl June 10th, 2010

    I had the (mis)fortune of meeting Jill at Bethenny’s first booksigning in New York. She was mean and dismissive then. She begrudgingly obliged her fans with pictures and autographs. She kept complaining that she was hungry and wanted to go to dinner even though Bethenny was still signing books and talking to fans. While I think Bethenny is a shwred business woman who has culivated her image very carefully, and not the nice girl we see on TV, Jill was jealous then and she’s jealous now.

    Link to the article:

    Ok, time to back to lurker mode 🙂

    • Quincy IL says:

      Jill does have hunger issues. I think Bobby should keep one of my horse feed bags in his pocket just in case Jill needs to graze before the six course meal is served.

      Don’t lurk, girl. You are a gifted writer. We will need you tonight at Lynn’s party.

      • boston02127 says:

        @QuincyIL~~Lol, Feed bag for Jill.

      • LucyHPotter says:

        Thank you Quincy!

        I thought the same thing when I read the comment. Jill is always complaining about being hungry! First at Ramona’s event then at Ramona’s renewal ceremony. Sucks to be her cause she is definitely NOT a size 1.

        I’ll be sure to join all of you tonight. I’m super excited.

    • boston02127 says:

      @LucyHPotter~~Thank you.

  78. Tracey says:

    I don’t know whether this has come up yet but Jill opened up her website to comments about a week ago and received a comment from both J Samples and S Saunders, both complimentary, (if you can imagine) and one right after the other. This woman has balls or really does believe her fans are THAT stupid. Anyway, LOVE the blog Lynn!

    • butterisafruit says:

      Tracey, I honestly think she believes we’re stupid.

      After being charged with Amazongate, using the Sample and Saunders names.
      she STILL lies to her own supporters. Her ethics are severely displaced.

    • Tracey says:

      Sorry I got the names wrong : (

      Who are the endorsement deals for dear?

      J Shapiro..so funny..I have the same initials!

      June 5th, 2010 at 11:56 am

      Any endorsement deals lately?


      jill z Says:
      June 5th, 2010 at 12:01 pm

      J Samples..thank you for asking! Actually I have 2 big ones coming. I will let you all know soon. One is on Wednesday. The companies loves the controversy….you know what they say..any press good press? I would not have been on the cover of US WEEKLY this week if not for the controversy…they know that hater’s are part of the eco system…look at the Kardashians for example..they have lovers and haters and continue to build their empire from it. Have a great weekend! Jill


      • Quincy IL says:

        Hmmm. Maybe, Jill will expose J Samples email address to the world as she did to others here on this site. Then, we will know who he is.

  79. Jennifer says:

    Wait my last comment didn’t post…. B on The View says real reason for feud because Jill told cast not to film with B because it encourages her getting her own show Holy jealous!

  80. dsc60 says:

    just saw bethany on The View! she stated the biggest reason for her “breakup” with jill was the fact that jill was trying to get the other housewives to not appear on her new show. she also mentioned the fact that jill was mad because she wasn’t there for her when bobby was sick but said she wasn’t aware that he was sick (remember her saying she just thought he was having a “procedure”? which we found out that IS all it was since there was no scar to prove it was anything other than that). she said her show isn’t a train wreck like RHoNY and joy said “but isn’t that why people watch”? bethany said that an intelligent show shouldn’t have to be a train wreck to get people to watch and that’s what her new show is. Can’t wait to tune in tonight!

    • Viki55 says:

      okay….which is it? Jennifer says Jill tried to get cast not to film with her on HWNYC (backs up what Alex says at the reunion) but you says Jill tired to get cast not to appear on Bethenny’s new show. Was it both?

      • xenophile says:

        I think B was referring to filming for RHONYC

        • Viki55 says:

          Thanks! That sure sounds like Jill. I am sure she thought she had that much pull on NYC. Bethenny’s show, not so much.

      • Jennifer says:

        No prob…..B said Jill didn’t want any cast members to film with her At ALL on either show but especially HW because that’s one Jill on

  81. dsc60 says:

    sorry jennifer… didn’t mean to step on your toes… we must have been posting at the same time.

    • Jennifer says:

      Sorry meant to write comment above here 🙂 I just soooooooo excited more truth about JZ jealous character coming out

  82. emt2 says:

    I think Jill is paying people at the Post. Read this ridiculous review.


    • xenophile says:

      Loving the comments though 🙂
      Linda’s being put in her place.

      • Jennifer says:

        My theory is the viewers will determine if show not good, even if they love B no one likes a crappy show so when show runaway hit ( which I think it will be) then NY Post and JZ can eat crow ( with all the crow Jill has to eat lately she will at least a size 2) 😉

  83. HD says:

    Jill is the dumbest woman I have ever witnessed on Reality TV. Really? Getting a few twitter messages is like a gay person being bullied?! Why don’t you ask Matthew Sheppard’s family if your little I hate Jill tweets that you get are the same thing, you low down stupid Annie reject! UHHHHHHHHHH!!

  84. cusi77 says:

    Good Morning Lynn! Godd morning to everybody!

    This week it has been difficult for me to follow with the amount of comments…

    Congrats Lynn!

    I will be having soon a show with my sculptures, paintings, printmakings and jewlry (called “Sculptures to wear”)… An Artist, friend of mine, graciously offered me a bigger space to work -since I live in 650 Sf. I need to go to work… but I wanted to leave here a little observation…

    Isn’t it ironic a year ago JZ state in The final Reunion about Bethenny “She will have everything… but not at the same time”… (her psychic told her?)

    How far from the truth! Bethenny DOES HAVE EVERYTHING now!

    She is successful in her career, married, has a beautiful baby, and TRUE friends on her side!

    Catch with you tonight!

  85. BamaBelle says:

    Thanks for the GREAT blogs, Lynn.

    I am a “HARMLESS” new poster here (a mother with grown children and grandchildren) that found this site out of frustration for the Bravo website. They will not let me post, I’ve tried so many times to post on Jill’s blog-NO LUCK!

    I’m watching the re-runs of RHONY today and already I’m FURIOUS with Jill all over again! Ramona called LuAnn a “Slut” when Jill had her on speaker phone at LuAnn’s house. All LuAnn said was “how dare Ramona bring up my marriage”. Why didn’t she demand an apology from Ramona? My theory is… Jill didn’t want LuAnn and Ramona into it, at that time I think Jill was trying to turn Ramona against Bethenny (like she did LuAnn). Jill needed Ramona on Jills side, so she didn’t want a big fight between LuAnn and Ramona. I feel pretty confident that it was Jill who told Kelly that Bethenny went after her in the press, and fueled the fire between Kelly and Bethenny! Jill is a LIAR, she DID give Kelly a chance last year. She ONLY buddied-up to Kelly to HURT Bethenny!

    I CAN believe Jill is going after Alex… if she could do what she did to Bethenny when she called her a BFF, then no telling what she’ll try and do to Alex! I e-mailed Bravo (June 9th, 2010) with a support letter for Alex and Simon and how I hoped they would remain on the show or be on Bethenny’s new show. And yes, I said I could do without Jill and that they need to re-cast RHONJ because I’m NOT watching that mess.

    Here’s what I have found out about Trolls… DO NOT FEED THEM! If you don’t FEED them… they’ll GO AWAY!

    Can’t wait for Bethenny’s show tonight… Jason is so good-looking and seems to be such a nice guy. Last year at the end of the Reunion Show, if I’m not mistaken, Jill said that Bethenny couldn’t have it all! Well guess what Miss Jill… she DID get it all and she managed to get married and have a baby without you!

    Everybody have a great day!

    • Annie1033 says:

      Totally agree with your theory about Jill “needing” Ramona. I had the same thought when that scene FIRST aired! I’m not omniscient or anything…again, I think it’s just amazing how many people try to analyze or defend Jill! It’s easy: She’s utterly TRANSPARENT!

  86. cusi77 says:

    Unfortunately I do not have a website! I am not famous. But I have been working for about 30 years. Every piece is a new start, a new challenge, a lot of fun! It is not serious!

    I am watching Jill blaming on ginger “that ugly smell” in the bed with LuAnn!

  87. jillpinchesloaves says:

    Thank you Tracey for posting the comments from Jill’s own website in which she re-creates her dual personalities and actually responds to a post from herself as J. Samples
    (which we all know stands for Jill loves $spiff in the form of SAMPLES…cough, cough—wink, wink…the $15,000. designer purse, etc.)

    Anyway, here she is again, in this response to/as J. Samples to cross-reference ‘that haters are part of the eco-system and that the Kardashian girls represent the love/hate relationship of tv viewers. She is always trying to deflect and spin her own dislike by the viewing audience onto other cross-sections of the population that she feels are targets. Her seemingly vapid analogies are not congruent and they don’t align no matter how much she tries to sell us $49 tshirts on her husband’s business dot com.
    No matter how much clown makeup she puts on, no matter how much she tries to tell the public how many friends she has, she is still that tragic fatty grownup middle-aged woman stuffed like a drug-addled mushroom into a pepto-bismol-pink, back-fat-revealing, fatty-girl skating outfit. “Whee, look at me skate…I’m so care free and fun.” Surely she knows we can see right through her, that this pathetic attempt to ice-skate was to one-up Bethenny’s uber coolio, majorly rad skills on roller-skates. Once again, Jill Zarin. Major. Fail.

    • Squirrels says:

      I forgot all about the halloween party on skates. Yep, B out skated J just moving in a straight line. She stayed on her feet.

    • Ellabean says:

      Oh MY Gawd !

      That was so astute to connect Jill’s on camera ice skating as an attempt to resurrect a youthful image of her past self (long gone) …..and she GOT THE IDEA FROM BETHENNEY ‘S ROLLING SKATING last season which was so very cool and cute and original and legitimately so.

      Holy Schmoly – that is so right on – like a huge light bulb above my brain.

      • Annie1033 says:

        That was one of my favorite scenes of this entire series: Bethenny on the streets of NY as “Rollergirl” on Halloween talking to the camera about how ridiculous Kelly is and then skating away, backwards, in silence. I thought that was one of the funniest, cutest scenes ever!

      • Ellabean says:


        Jill STOLE the [ice] skating idea from Bethenney.

        • boston02127 says:

          @Ellabean~Sad thing is thou, Bethenny took Ally and skated with her. Jill didn’t, Ally just watched her from the side.

  88. MickeyMouth says:

    Perez just posted Jacqueline’s tweet about Danielle releasing her own sex tape. He also took a dig at Luann’s singing today.

  89. Ellabean says:

    I am watching the rerusn right now.

    Another Kelly bizaare moment that didn’t register with me when this episode first aired:

    When she is doing those silly on-the-street interviews for Gotham Magazine to see what ‘real ‘ people are wearing. She runs into a hair stylist she knows. Asks to take his picture – so she whips out a standard looking digital camera. She admits that she has NO IDEA how to use it. But moreover – she then goes on to admit in her confessional – that ‘she was married to one of the greatest photographers “in the universe” (her words) and has no idea how to “take a picture” (not just use a particular type of camera).

    What adult at age 42 – with kids , no less, has no idea how to take a picture. This is another example of not a priviliged life – but a limited life. I think she has been surrounded her life with caretakers…she is a mom who can’t make pancakes. Even lousy ones – it was obvious that was her first attempt at making them (in one of the episodes)…with two little girls. That’s what you do with kids.

    I know people like that in life – they get by on bullshitting others with their charm – and have NO LIFE SKILLS. They can’t do anything.

    • jillpinchesloaves says:

      And that’s exactly why Alex smelled a rat’s ass when Kelly attempted to pass herself off as a photographer on the beach. Very peculiar how Kelly transcends from not knowing how to use a digital camera to snap candids of street life into an on-location-shoot photographer for ‘models of beach wear.’ As ‘endearing portraits’ no less. Gag me with a Nikon 300 zoom lens.

      • boston02127 says:

        @jillpinchesloaves~~But Kelly had her “smart” glasses on when she was on the beach. LOL

    • Hooked On Housewives says:


      I’ll apologize up front because I do not want my words to be taken as a slam against anyone. Regarding Kellamity. Is it possible that this woman is borderline retarded (awful word..using to make a point) or mentally challenged. Think about it for a moment. Kellamity was probably a gorgeous kid, a gorgeous teen and a gorgeous young lady. Who would have noticed or cared if she was “slow?” Because she was beautiful her family would not admit to her being slow. She was chosen to model at an early age. Nobody would have cared if she couldn’t string a sentence or count to ten as long as she did the job. Any childish tantrums would have been chalked up to being a high strung personality (read: model). Being mentally challenged would cover most of Kellamity’s current behaviors.

      • Ellabean says:

        Hooked. Quite a valid point – and you explained your point just fine.

        Really – anything is possible with Kelly. We all know the many theories . But I do think one thing is certain – she is not bright. Whether it is a learning disability or just plain low IQ.

        I think that her entire adult life – has been conducted with a ‘need to prove’. Remember how she has said that her father insisted that she goto college while persuing modeling when she first came to NY .

        And she has made a few obtuse remarks about “literature”. Remember when she had coffee with the writer guy and was flirting with him. He asks her if she has read a certain book – She then says in her confessional that she has to brush up on her “literature” . Don’t people usually say that have to brush up on their reading? She also tweets using the word “for” instead of “because” , as the word is used in historical literature.

        She knows she is not smart – it is definitely a “hot spot” for her.

        • anniieee says:

          Maybe even borderline autistic…aspbergers(sp)…where they cannot handle social situations for more that a few minutes? Great point- Hooked…got me thinking here and my brain is really tired. Have to go back now and watch her.

      • Squirrels says:

        Hooked – my 25 yr old son w/ Down Syndrome would take one look at Kelly and say, “Yuckkkkkk”. He’s obviously smarter than her fan base.

      • DeeWhoLovesAlex says:

        I have thought this as well. I have a family member who has an IQ of less than 60. Yes, she is retarded both mentally and emotionally. Add drinking and or drugs WITH HER PERSONALITY and what you get is crazy. She will most likely never get it. Never going to be a fair fight as B & A & S pointed out to us. But go ahead Jill and use her to your delight, and make sure to insult her to her face with the countless and laught at her. She is so funny when she sits on her bed rocking back and forth because B is going to kill her.

        JZ is my friend. “JZ to Kelly” how is B. “Kelly to JZ” she is trying to kill me. “JZ to Kelly” I am so worried about her.

        Who is the retarded one?

      • Can't Stand Jill Either! says:

        I believe Kelly has Asperberger’s syndrome. It would make a lot of sense. People with this syndrome have a lot of difficulty in social situations, they have trouble understanding simple metaphors, and are uncomfortable discussing feelings or when people display emotions. They are also lower on the IQ scale.

        I am a psychologist in real life and I work with kids with autism and Asperger’s. I honestly do think this is the real deal behind Kelly’s behavior.

        I also think she has some personality disorders–at least one–paranoid personality disorder. Perhaps a little narcissistic, borderline, and schizoid thrown in as well.

        She really shouldn’t be on this show.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        It is hard to say that it is drug addiction, multiple personalities or a low IQ/learning disability because it could be a combination. What I don’t think it is is ACTING.

  90. RileyKitty says:

    Jill is so ridiculous, you put yourself on reality TV, you are begging to be judged. Anyone who has spent any time at TWoP knows people pick apart everyone & anyone. Every reality personality has lover & haters. Jill can fix this by leaving the show, but she can’t because she craves the attention & the “fame” she feels she has.

    Walk away & as much as we hate her now, we will forget about her in a New York minute. Imagine no Jill on the show, no Jill in the press what would we have to bitch about? Nothing! I hate Jill Zarin is not a threat.

    Side Note: I just want to thank everyone who looked at the pics on my blog & commented (except the bitch who called me fat… I don’t remember telling anyone I was a size 1 LOL).

  91. Mbdea says:

    Good morning (on west coast here). As usual, trying to catch up on the lightning speed comments but managed to get through most *PHEW*

    We are less than 10 minutes away from watching Bethenny on The View…and I can’t wait.

    Perhaps already posted in the comments I may have missed but has Jillzilla posted anything in regards to Bethenny making the rounds to promote her new show, yet?

    Imagining she is melting into a toxic puddle of slime each time Bethenny and her show get coverage…oh the image!

  92. MontanaMommy says:

    Although I am not a fan of ANY of the women on these shows, nor do I think they are stellar role models; that being said I sure do get a kick out of all of you!

    And thank you so much Lynn for this blog!

    Loved reading the comments on TWOP and followed the witty, charming, thought provoking real people here!

    You are the ones I am a fan of!

    Oh, and TMZ has an article today where Danielle Staub claims her tape will outsell Kendra Wilkinson’s tape…


  93. Annie1033 says:

    Tweet a few minutes ago from Alex!….

    “WHOOOOA! Just heard from @BravoAndy that #RHONY reunion is 3 PARTS! Tonight, Monday and next Thursday – I TOLD you it’d be good!!!”

  94. Viki55 says:

    Alex just tweeted that reunion will be three parts.

  95. Viki55 says:

    Tonight, Monday & Next Thursday.

  96. emt2 says:

    Bethenny said on the View that the real reason why she and Jill fought was because Jill tried to convince others not to film with her and mess up her new tv show. That’s what Alex says to Jill during the reunion, as well.

    Jill is so stupid.

    • RileyKitty says:

      Alex confirmed this during cocktails too…. were you getting a refill, emt2? 🙂 It just goes to show that Jill Zarin is a bully… Kelly should do a PSA on JILL!!

      • emt2 says:

        I think I was getting a refill. lol

        I know. Jill is the bully on the show. Kelly is too afraid of Jill.

        I can’t wait for the reunion tonight but I’m not too thrilled about the 3 parts. I think they are trying to drag it out and boost viewership for Housewives of New Jersey on Monday and Bethenny’s show.

        Part 3 will have the juiciest stuff.

      • dee says:

        Kelly and Jill are “thick as thieves” (tm Caroline). She would never call out Jilly Girl.

  97. Anitabee says:

    I keep forgetting to post this.

    I know it’s silly but ….. it still bugs me. Remember when Jill gave Bethenny her potatoe pancakes at their lunch meetup? Did you guys catch the container that Jill used? I am positive it is a reused free chinese food takeout container.


    I mean cheap is cheap but isn’t Jill supposed to be rich? Damn, it was Christmas time in NYC. Couldn’t you spare $3 for a set of 4 Gladware containers. At xmas time I love buying the Holiday Themed gladware containers so friends and family can take home leftovers.

    This is why I am positve that Jill’s media people are either free INTERNS or the bottom of the barrel cheap excuse for a PR firm.

    Btw, Jill thank you for all your toxicity. Thanks to everyone calling out your BS – millions will watch tonite to see your crocidile tears. You and your twits of a PR firm have managed to ensure that BETHENNY”S NEW SHOW will get a HUGE LEADIN AUDIENCE which will ensure HUGE RATINGS for BGM.

    Thanks whackadoodle Kelly. You helped too.

    • jillpinchesloaves says:

      Exactly and here we have, once again, another perfect example of Jill always trying to one-up Bethenny because what better silent slam is there than to give an accomplished chef a shitty meal-to-go in an old take-out container under guise of ‘Here, I made your favorite.’
      (Big steep diggggggg, as in, “Look Bitch, I can cook too! Anything you can do, I can do better.” Really? All this played out on an unsuspecting, already fragile, expectant mother. Wow. Just Wow.

      Jill’s jealousy knows no bounds.

    • lillybee says:

      Just to be fair, one can buy unused Chinese take out containers in many different places.

      • Anitabee says:

        Oh course you can.
        Still if you had money and it was Holiday time wouldn’t you used something not as tacky? For goodness sake Jill gave these to Bethenny as a “gift” AND in front of millions of viewers.

        That’s like wrapping a birthday gift in newspaper.

  98. Hooked On Housewives says:

    Moving this downthread because I want to get all your opinions.


    I’ll apologize up front because I do not want my words to be taken as a slam against anyone. Regarding Kellamity. Is it possible that this woman is borderline retarded (awful word..using to make a point) or mentally challenged. Think about it for a moment. Kellamity was probably a gorgeous kid, a gorgeous teen and a gorgeous young lady.

    • Annie1033 says:

      *GASP* – Thank you for saying that!!!! I have been WANTING to speculate on exactly that but was too afraid to say anything!!!! Omg. Hooked – You and I are likethis. 😉

    • Viki55 says:

      Perhaps a mild case of autism?

      • Annie1033 says:

        Right…..that’s precisely what I was thinking. I don’t mean to keep parroting others…I just really was afraid to mention it! I’m a wuss, what can I say?! 😉

      • dee says:

        Asperger’s Syndrome is the mildest form of autism. I’ve seen children that if you didn’t tell me they had Asperger’s I would have chalked up their behavior to quirks. They are high-functioning, but I do not know how they are with feelings. Children with more severe cases are closed up individulas. Kelly seems to be closed off to her feelings. But then again, she is not really close to her castmates. They weren’t friends prior to filming Season 2. And Kelly saying that “oh, so-so has changed and is great” doesn’t mean that she actually feels what she is saying. A layman’s litmus test to see if she does suffer from autism is to see how she acts with her family.

        • Viki55 says:

          I think we saw a little of that. Her girls talk about her weirdness. There were times I thought perhaps Kelly even had a hearing problem. She didn’t seem to catch what her girls were saying to her. I keep thinking of the pancake sceen where the younger child didn’t even want to try to talk to her.

          • Hooked On Housewives says:


            I originally thought Kellamity may have a hearing problem as well. I came to that conclusion during the restaurant scene with Kellamity, Sea and Teddie. One of the girls said, “You work hard for us.” Kellamity replies, “I’m too hard on you?” Even after her daughter tries to clarify, Kellamity says, yah, right. I thought it was Kellamity’s hearing.

            • Viki55 says:

              Yup. Saw that also. And even on the island she would seem to miss the 1st few words of whole sentences which totally changed its meaning. And sometimes she is slurry, oh my, her strange mouth movements! Like someone taught to speak without hearing. Oh my.

      • Hooked On Housewives says:

        I have an autistic nephew and just like Kellamity, you wouldn’t know it unless someone told you. My nephew was schooled in an envioronment that catered to autistic children. He dosen’t have and never has had the look that some autistic children/adults have. Meaning that sometimes autism/mild retardation doesn’t show and if you are handsome or pretty enough it doesn’t become an issue in your life because there are always folks who will cater to the beautiful/powerful/rich among us.

        • Viki55 says:

          Very true.

        • dee says:

          I think we are programmed to forgive or make excuses for people that are beautiful. Tom Cruise crazy? Nahhhh, he’s too handsome. He’s just…super excited about things. That was said before, by me, the couch jumping incident.

    • RileyKitty says:

      I have had the very same thoughts but couldn’t find the correct words to post it so it wouldn’t offend anyone.

      • Ellabean says:

        Hooked – I answered you back up thread. But briefly here – I think your point is fine (and diplomatic).

        I was pointing out up thread that Kelly has no life skills. I just caught the episode where she says she can’t use a camera (any camera) – we know she has never made pancakes – with two little school age girls nonetheless. I am amazed that she can drive a car – seriously.

        I think she has been protected, coddled throughout her life.

    • Viki55 says:

      No. 1: A child suffering with symptoms normally finds it difficult to initiate conversation or making friendships with other children. Even in the cases where the child initiates a discussion, he/she is unable to sustain it for long.

      No. 3: Some children who show very odd characteristics of communication like talking too much or talking about totally unrelated things are said to be showing symptoms of mild autism.

      No. 6: If your child shows very strange characteristics like severe mood swings at an early age or lack of consideration for others, he/she may be suffering from mild form of autism

      No. 7: Another common characteristic of children exhibiting symptoms is that they very often keep repeating lines from a certain book, movie or previous conversation.

      Sound a little familar?

      It is sad isn’t it?

      I believe what you write is true. That’s what happens in our society when you are a beautiful woman. Everyone and every institution gives you a free pass. Sooner or later though after a lifetime of free passes it’s time to pay up.

      For Kelly that time has come – she still has her looks but they once they start to fade they will be gone quickly. Then what will she have? No friends, no husband, an empty nest and a lifetime of people she wronged.

      I can’t understand why she beat up her fiancee last year. She was engaged to him but brought that prositution whore Max on the show instead. Even though there are pictures all over the net of her exfiancee and her at Hampton events she went on show TV show and said that the person who had her arrested was a mere aquaintance.

      How messed is that. Too be so full of it you don’t know true love when it is standing right next to you. And then to be so whackadoodle you actually assault that love right out of your life forever.

      For what? For a brief stunt on a cable tv show? Just to have your supposed friends of Jill and LuAnn make fun of you to your face?

      Sad, Sad, sad.

      • dee says:

        Your comment reminds me of something that I read a long time ago. There was a study done that wanted to survey the happiness between beautiful women and not so beautiful women. The beautiful women were like Kelly, aside from aesthetically pleasing all their lives, got their way, always had boyfriends, so on and so forth. The less pleasing women, were studious and always had to struggle to get something or somewhere. The women in the study were in an older stage of their lives. Beautiful women not so beautiful anymore. Less pretty women, still not pretty, but successful in their careers and life. The question was are you more happy now or then. Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that in the end, regular, plain, maybe even ugly, women were much happy later in life than the Kellys at the same later stage of life.

          Some of us get better looking when we get old. LOL.

          Health and happiness radiate. People are drawn to the warmth.

          • dee says:

            I’m as plain as you can get, that is before make-up, and even after make-up, meh. But I feel so much better than I did in my youth. I’m happy that I didn’t define myself by something that is so fleeting as looks. And I believe that the women in the study did the same.

        wow Viki… I should read all the way before posting…excellent post!! and Kelly to a T

  99. kokuanani says:

    Coming all the way down thread to post [it will take me forever to read 329 posts] to remark that the repeats currently on are GOLD. Anyone out there who’s got a DVR & computer ability could put together a “highlights tape” of Jill’s craziness.

    Right now it’s the episode where Jill’s whining over the “ambush” @ Ramona’s, the “letter” that Bethenny wrote to Bobby, Jill’s non-reading of the letter [r-i-g-h-t] and Bobby’s advice to her.

    It’s remarkable to see Jill’s convoluted reasons for “not-forgiving” Bethenny and “keeping toxicity out of her life.” Quite a contrast to her current efforts to get back in the spotlight.

    Okay, back up thread to read the posts.

  100. SusanS88 says:

    I put two things together recently that I think are worth some thought:

    1) The Daily Beast story reveals that a “well sourced” rumor was that Bravo was debating letting Jill go sometime between S2 and S3 because she was being difficult. (apparently, Andy Cohen quickly shot this rumor down to the reporter)

    2) Sonja Morgan was originally asked to be on S1 but turned it down.

    So, imagine that when Bravo was debating booting Jill, they go back to Sonja to sweeten the deal (and considering the judgment of some $7mill against her now, she would have more motivation than before). I’ll bet Bravo was planning on replacing Jill with Sonja. Bravo figures bringing two more housewives on should be enough of a threat to Jill. And apparently it was since she was on S3. So Bravo repays Jill by showing as much of her true nature as possible and not getting any nice stuff (assuming there was some and it was left on the cutting room floor). Everyone was wondering why so many extra on NYC. Bravo knew B was getting her own show. If you ask me S and JG were “insurance” against B’s departure (success) and JZ’s departure (failure).

    I would LOVE to see Sonja as the new Matriarch of this group (she has way better “cred” than JZ!!

    That’s my theory. For what it’s worth 🙂

    • Viki55 says:

      I think it is a great theory! But since no one likes Jenn and Jill would be a ratings winner (hate), think they will keep Jill on another season?

      • anniieee says:

        Lets hope for the theory and let Jill stay home and watch her TV with her fabulous circle of friends….

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      The theory makes sense to me – get rid of difficult/least favorite with fans wives by testing the water with replacements. NY testing Sonja (keeper) and Jen (jury is out). NJ is testing Kim G (give someone to Danielle since no other wives will interact with her) and Ashley (jury is out). SO WHO IS BEING REPLACED?

  101. Pantry Viewer says:

    Danielle naked looks JUST LIKE Ms. Wrinkles or whatever Dina’s scary naked cat is named.

    I had a strong stomach yesterday and felt able to view them. Had to laugh because in one of them Danielle is naked and curled up on a bed and looks just like that cat -ha!

    One last parting deep thought from me. Why in the world does JZ sit on the reunion couch and be SUCH a dismissive, angry, rude BITCH? How in the world can that help her rehab her image? After all she has done – and is all out there now for everyone to see, herself included – being a self-important bitch with those nasty looks and vicious talk on the couch clips infuriates me.

    Can’t wait until the reunion shows are over and I am so very done with NY. I will never watch with JZ on there. And LuMann is a definite second. Kelly is just an idiot and non-existent for me.

    • RileyKitty says:

      I crack the F#CK up every time I see your name on a post, Pantry Viewer. I thought the same thing when they show the reunion preview & we see Jill. Apparently the make-up artist set the make-up gun to BITCH for the reunion.

      • Pantry Viewer says:

        LOL! I made up that name super fast while posting at Bravo on the NY blogs. And they have posted almost every one of my comments – ha 🙂

        Totally cracking up at you saying the make-up artist set the make-up gun to bitch – hahahaha! So true!

        Oh, and I forgot to make clear that Danielle’s naked pics are on TMZ. Her skin is all in multiple folds on her belly, thus the cat reference.

        • dee says:

          Why is her skin like that? Is not like she’s zaftig or anything. It actually reminds me of people after stomach stapling surgery.

          • Pantry Viewer says:

            I know! She is very thin, so I was surprised to see the rolls.

          • Quincy IL says:

            Age…. the elastin in your skin goes with age. She’s probably a smoker too. They don’t show it on tv, but they only showed Tamra of OC going into her purse for the cigarette when she told Simon it was over in the car.

            Some people tighten all over the body, but that is expensive. I had a friend who loved the sun and cigarettes. She was thin all of her life, but at 50, the skin was hanging everywhere.

            Sun screen, exercise, good diet and hopefully good genes. That is the key to looking healthy after menopause.

            BTW… The ave..age of menopause is @52, Many women go before that age and some after. So Ramona and Danielle have something in common. I’ve known healthy women who started perimenopause at 40…so Jill is close behind…

    • boston02127 says:

      @PantryViewer~~I thought the same thing. I looked like she was curled up to a sher pi dog.

    • Eve says:

      I feel sorry for Allie (sp?) in these pics. The camera doesn’t like her in my opinion. Her (perfectly coiffed, dressed and made up) mother needs a buddy so she subjects her to these ridicules staged shoots.

    • RileyKitty says:

      Ally reminds me of myself. We are both very short & (not a size 1) so 5 lbs looks like 10 & cameras are not our friends.

      I felt so sorry when Jill talked to her about going to detox & losing weight on camera.

    Why is it, the Countess with all her Cosmpolitan-ness calls her French boyfriend “Zzhhack” vs. the french pronunciation “Jacques” pronounced more “Zzzhock” (make sense?).

    This bugs me too! But what is worse is how she pronounces her son’s name, Noel. She pronounces it like No-Ell, which is how you would pronounce Noelle (the feminine version of the name). Just because she married a Frenchman doesn’t mean she is French…but don’t tell her that!

  104. My Two Cents says:

    I think there is a certain segment of NYers and other big city types who love to watch Jill just because she is so obnoxious. She is a perfect caricature of the loud brash self centered materialistic type. I think they put her on these talk shows and do interviews with her for the sheer entertainment of laughing at her and the OMG factor. I think she’ll be asked back for more on RHONY. She will never redeem herself though. Just my two cents.

  110. celeste says:

    Ladies, I have been thinking about the Danielle antics all night, it affected me so much I couldn’t sleep! Normally I enjoy the gossip factor of TRoHNJ/NYC shows, but Danielle’s psycho behavior has left me cold. As you guys know I watched the trailer of her sex tape yesterday at daniellestaubraw.com and it grossed me out. She looks stoned either on pot or Xanax in some of the shots, her eyes are glazed and she’s not all there. I keep thinking about those poor girls of hers and how Danielle exploits the helpless and those who can’t stand up to her.
    Example 1: exploiting a baby with cancer so she could get back at the Manzo’s with her goons.
    Example 2: Using Dina’s daughter Lexie to hurt Dina and possibly have Lexi’s dad take custody of the child because of a piece of paper allegedly signed on his behalf by Dina for Bravo TV.
    Example 3: She attacked Caroline’s 19 year old son at the Brownstone, she was nasty to him and let her goomba pal call him a Fag.
    Example 4: She exploited her own DAUGHTER Christina’s photoshoot so she could throw a luncheon and then gossip about Dina and Jacquelyn not “showing up”.

    And now she has a sex tape out there that is going to cause her girls such harm! They are so vulnerable at that age and kids can be very cruel – can you imagine going to school everyday with the boys laughing about your 47 year old mother’s pierced clitoris? I think Danielle leaked it to the press, I’m sure she did. If she didn’t WHY would a 47 year old make a sex tape with anyone other than her husband and even then WHY would anyone want naked pics or sex tapes of themselves out there? especially when you have children? You ALWAYS put your kids first and never behave in a way that can harm them or embarrass them! Which brings me to this:
    Does anyone know WHY Danielle divorced the father of her 2 girls?
    Where is he and why isn’t he stepping in to take custody?
    Does Danielle have something on him that he’s afraid will come out if he tries to take the girls?
    Danielle is nothing if a master at exploitation and extortion. Looks like she hasn’t changed her spots since she was involved in the kidnapping of that young man many years ago. It literally makes me sick seeing Danielle sitting with a Priest in Church and then going to strip joints, pole dancing, having phone sex with strangers and arranging to meet them at a bar (that’s so UNSAFE!) hiring mafia buddies to intimidate people at a cancer fundraiser and then releasing a nasty and graphic sex tape while she sends “love and light” to her *fans* on her Bravo blog. UGH!!!!

    • dee says:

      Celeste, bravo for having a stronger stomach than me. I could not sit and watch that trailer.

    • Annie1033 says:

      I agree with everything you said.
      She really is evil and disgusting…..I just keep thinking about her kids too. I can practically FEEL what they’re feeling and it’s so traumatic.
      She didn’t just LEAK those tapes, she straight up shopped them around! She made that ON purpose TO be sold. SICK.

      • dee says:

        Excuse me, dear. But the mortgage on this house, the note on my car, the clothes I wear and my overall fabulous lifestyle needs to funded somehow. Plus my kids will get over it. I got over my miserable childhood. Pick whatever changing childhood story you heard about me. I got over it

    • dee says:

      Whoa, I missed this part; she’s piereced? How 20-something of her!

      • celeste says:

        @ Dee

        I didn’t see her piercing thank God, but here:

        “I think I want to poke my eyes out at the mere thought of New Jersey Real Housewives’ Danielle Staub’s porn debut. I know her body and it ain’t pretty.
        Her 75 minute porn debut is clearly an attempt for more fame and a few extra bucks along with it. We all know controversy sells and that “celeb” porn tapes can make a D lister a C Lister! Thats all great when the star in the tape’s body doesn’t look like something Dr Frankenstein manufactured in his hilltop lab.

        Danielle Staub does not have a body you want to see nakeey..

        Her boobs have huge scars running down from her nipples to the base (looks like breast reconstructive surgery… and not a good job). Her breast also look like rock hard tangerines in a tube sock with a gap in between you can park a truck in.

        She has a horrible c section scar that makes me wonder if her kids were 2 when they were born. BTW she is the mother of 2… ugh great example for your kids.

        The worst part of this whole visual is that her … umm “cookie” looks like a small babies arm holding an apple with a bar piercing going through it. It kinda looks like she is ready for a sword fight. Danielle can give Chyna and Ron Jeremy a run for their money.

        The guy is never seen in the video and it appears to be a pretty young guy. Because the dude is never seen it makes me think the tape was shot to shop for $$.

        Sorry to blow the illusion, but someone had to set it straight. Check out the screen grabs from her soon to be released sex tape… please make sure you view on an empty stomach…”

  111. Jenni says:

    @Morgaine- Nice blog on the art show. Could not figure out how to make comments over there so just wanted to say thanks! over here…

    @Lynn- Love your blog today. You sound so relaxed about all the recent stress, so glad you share your level head with us.

  112. WindyCityWondering says:

    As always you are insigthtul and direct! There are blogs all over the internet and they all hold an appeal to someone – you have a blog where I am comfortable enough to respond, always learn something new but most of all it’s FACT based and educational! By nature, I want as many real (having proof) facts before I form my opinion and before I would ever think to respond! And I don’t undertand anyone’s need to personally attack another poster EVER. So thank you for creating a place where I can skip that drama and concentrate on the topic and enjoy what other people are thinking too!

    Jill’s world is not one we would ever want to live and as a role model……..more in the what not to do, say, be, wear, etc side, which gives us our common topic. Will she ever change? No, because for her feel she has changed is to have everyone be what she wants them to be. She is a sad, middle aged woman who has nothing to show for herself (as in she created, she supported, she believed in) but marrying upwards economically and from that she has nothing to be admired for in the sum total of her life. She is a real person, she does hurt, she is a victim of her own jealousy and inability to truly support others’ dreams and successes. Jill does think she is what she is not – and by anyone putting that mirror up to her – the only course of action is to destroy, distort public perception and deny that was ever her intent. She will never overcome her transparency and she will always try to control and then attack those who point this character flaw or achieve what she can’t.

    If she is attacking you personally, your blogging buddies or this blog – that can only mean what is said here just brings her closer to that look in the reality mirror. She is Ginger on two legs – overweight, unhealthy relationships with others and full of poo. I am happy to be here, support you, your rules and all those who come here for that comfortable place to be. I didn’t know what trolls were until last night – those too will eventually find their comfortable place too – it just isn’t here!

    Tonight will be fun and what I miss, someone else will pick up on – the housewives are in their final lap for the season – we see, we search, we know!

    A shout out to our Chicago Blackhawks – they earned that cup! And I think we are poised to see the return of a hockey dynasty! Hoooo rah! Hawks rule!

    Hi Lynn, Are you going to set up a liveblog for tonight’s reunion? I know you usually do a recap but I am certain the lies are going to be flying fast and furious out of Jill’s mouth and a liveblog will be a nice way to capture it all. Gawker does a liveblog for Top Chef/Master and it’s great. I know Bravo has their talkbubble but it’s a little too confusing for me. I know some of us comment during the show on your blogs and all I’m asking for is a specific blog dedicated to the show while it’s on. Just a thought!

    • Capiche says:

      Let me clarify. Not you doing live comments per se, but a blog where we all can comment during the show.

        I told boston upthread, some of the amenities Gawker posted are fake. It’s a very snarky website, but I think they were making fun of the fact that Hairy Harpy (love that name) keeps harping (!) about her and Juicy Joe’s sex life.

  119. Emmy Thompson says:

    Lynn: I LOVE your blogs ! It is apparent from the way Jill is going after Alex, that she didn’t learn anything from her behavior with Bethanny.

    I truly hope that Bravo does not invite her back next year. She is a jealous and manipulative person. I have seen enough of her to last a lifetime.
    It was so refreshing to see at the finale the friendship that developed between
    Bethanny, Ramona and Alex. I would love Bravo to bring more of that back into the mix.

    Can’t you spill the dirt on how Jill tried to stop your cocktail party for Alex & Simon?

    • Pantry Viewer says:

      Yes, Lynn, please do explain more about that bombshell…

    • RileyKitty says:

      I would love to know this too, Lynn, but only if you feel comfortable telling us.

      The cocktail party was one of the best evenings I have ever had (besides wedding, birth of kid blah blah blah LOL) & the fact Jill tried to keep it from happening pisses me off.

      Alex & Simon were 2 of the most accomodating, gracious people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. I also want to say Jill was a bitch saying Alex had the body of a model but not the face, Alex is absolutely striking in person. Jill is a vile bitch!

      • Anitabee says:

        I respect Lynn’s reasons for not playing that card.

        Yet — I do think it would be fun to guess – no? Anyone?

        My thought is Jill loves to threaten people and businesses.

        Maybe Jill tried some lameass attempt to have B&N cancel Silex’s appearance by sneaking in and stealing all the employees pets. Then she sent a gift basket full of leftover Hannakah potatoe pancakes from last xmas, hallucogenic gum berries, and leftover 2009 Holiday party free cupcakes full of laxatives to the store employees the day before. Therefore, the store would have to close down forcing the store to reschedule Silex’s appearance.

        Luckily GingerZarin intervened and rerouted the kidnappers to Jill’s Mahattan Apartment so they would break in and free Ginger. Unfortunately the $20 Jill gave the kidnappers only got them to Union Park — too far way to help poor little ginger.

        Then Ginger called UPS and had the giftbasket sent to Andy Cohen instead. Andy quickly recongized the gift was sent by “Susan Sanders” and thought “Score!”. He then repackaged the basket adding sympathy cards and sent it to Zarin Fabrics. Knowing this would ensure Jill going utterly bonkers and flying off to Kellyland.

        When Jill got the giftbasket her size one ass broke into it. This explains the last week of Jill’s crazy behavior.

        Just a guess…

  120. RileyKitty says:

    remember Kelly last season saying everybody wants to date Max. Max wants to date me. Yes, Kelly, & apparently Sonja & probably various other women on the UES.

    I think her “relationship” with MaxMax ended because Max wanted to poke her with his pecker & since she is like a 13 year old girl when around men she thought it was inappropriate. She just doesn’t act like a sexually mature woman when around men. It is almost like her & Gilles had sex twice to conceive & she had her eyes shut tight the whole time. Being a woman who enjoys sex = Ho-bag in Kelly’s mind.

    • Anitabee says:

      Max is a prostitution whore.

      Kelly paid him to escort her just like Sonja and LuAnn have. Too bad Kelly was engaged at the time.

      Hmmm…didn’t Kelly say she wants to get married and have more kids? I guess that’s why she beat her exfinancee last year and broke up with him. That’s what a sane woman does when she wants to get married and concieve.

      Kelly has been outed in several internet reports that SHE and Gilles both had many affairs while they where married. She has sex. Though with this track record she has no right to call anyone a Ho-bag.

      • Lolo says:

        I don’t know, she may have had affairs but I bet she just laid there. ; ) I think sex makes her very uncomfortable, she flirts in a very young girly way and doesn’t get jokes about sex or takes them the wrong way. She would have gone beserk (er) at the island dinner the night after she left, when they were talking about penis size.

    • Pantry Viewer says:

      I truly think all of that trash Kelly talks about sex and ho-bag is just her putting on an act. She gets it on plenty, I’m sure. I mean, she flirted like a ridiculous school girl with the Playboy interviewer (ew!) and Max.

      She is just using those words to appear better than others in that regard, I believe.

      • Annie1033 says:

        Yeah, I actually feel like it’s a total lie and I get the SLEAZIEST vibe from her and Luann….but actually, ESPECIALLY Kelly on the show.
        She doth protest too much.

    • RileyKitty says:

      Yeah i was pretty much joking about her crazy reaction to sex.

      It was pointed out by someone (an Australian) 😉 that Kelly’s hitting of the ex happened on a night the show aired. They may have been fighting over her on screen pretend relationship with MaxMax.

      • Pantry Viewer says:

        LOL! She got pissed off at seeing herself being a loser and beat the crap out of him!

    • dee says:

      Look what I found! Max Palacios working for “12 Corazones” on Telemundo.
      He’s called the “Astro of Seduction”. I have no idea what role he’s playing in that god awful show. It really is a god awful show.

  121. Pantry Viewer says:

    Any other insight/details on Bethenny on The View? I can’t watch that show – makes my head want to split open with those blabbering blowhards interrupting and talking all over each other.

    • Pantry Viewer says:

      Plus, I’m at work and can’t tune in for B 🙂

      • Ellabean says:

        If you don’t have a DVR (like me) – you can catch Bethenney on The View on hulu.com. She was on in the last sequence of the show (last 10 minutes). The shows gets posted on hulu later in the day or early the next day – then they stay on that site for about 5 days each.

        Bethenney was terrific, as expected. But I hate that that other Shill, Elisabeth Hasselbeck lead the interview with her rapid chipmunk word salad voice. Sarah Palin the 2nd wannabe – Ann Coulter lite.

    • shantygal says:

      Which is what I’m afraid the reunion will be like tonight. ‘Ol green shoes honking over everyone not letting them make their point, then Andy saying, Um, OK, next question.

      I would love for Bravo to put out a DVD of uncut footage of the trip AND the reunion. YES Bravo, people will buy that, unlike the crapass t-shirts and self-hurt book Shill is hawking.

      • Pantry Viewer says:

        I agree, Shanty. I was thinking the same thing as I was writing my description of The View panel.

        I just know Jill’s horn will honk over everyone and piss me off. Just seeing LuMan nod her manly head and give superior looks when Jill gets in a dig or Andy is reading something unfavorable to Ramona, Alex and Bethenny make me want to punch her like Kelly punches her boyfriends.

  122. Bravo fan says:

    Hi everyone, I have not posted for awhile. It is my birthday today and what better gift than the reunion to air tonight. Hearing that it will be in three parts makes me wonder. Are they going to drag it out because it is such a hot show? Are they going to use a lot of filler and leave us hanging? I hope not, then again being able to see another hour should not be disappointing.
    I saw Danielle’s pictures and they are not pretty. But, she is a smoker which certainly does destroys skin integrity and she is in her late 40s. She looks much better with clothes on for sure. I feel for her daughters.
    Lynn thanks for keeping up the blog. Have fun watching tonight everyone! I am currently watching all the RHONY reruns from this season.

      It is my birthday today and what better gift than the reunion to air tonight.


      My birthday is next Thursday, and I thought Bravo gave me an extra-special present by making the reunion show two hours.

      Apparently someone else here has a birthday on June 24, since that’s when Bravo is reportedly airing Hour Three of the reunion.

      Thank you, birthday person. Please identify yourself and claim our accolades.

  123. kathy says:

    Lynn, I’m mostly a lurker who sometimes comments. I do read your blog all the time and think you do a good service to people who need to vent! I am a Bruin fan; but don’t hold that against me! Jill Zarin has been so nasty this season that I can’t stand the sound of her voice. I’m rewatching the season today. Just got past the stomach churning Ginger’s projectile pooping-bleh! Has anyone else noticed that Jill seems to be pushing Kelly in her dislike of Bethenny? Dim bulb Kelly is actually trying to get along with B, and Jill is giving her a guilt trip over it! Maybe because I sometimes go into a trance when Kelly’s on and that’s how it got past me! Also at the Brooklyn fashion show, Jill said Alex looked like she was channeling the devil. All of Kelly’s weird behavior on the Island seems to have been somewhat seeded by nasty Jill! Am I wrong? Do you think Jill played into Kelly’s natural instability and piled on the doubt in Kelly’s feeble mind! I’m sorry; but, Kelly is really stupid. There’s no getting away from it. Dumb as a box of rocks. Today, looking back, it looks like our little Jill and LuMan sent Kelly a bonvoyage full of vitriol. I also think that Kelly was on drugs and that was why she kept leaving and coming back. After a little tweak. Plus all that candy eating? Total drug behavior! Anyway, I think that Jill is a nasty person. She was jealous that B got more attention and got her own show. Bobby’s illness was just the reason she used. She definitly miscaculated and now she’s back pedaling. I don’t buy it. We saw the real Jill this season and it sure is ugly!

    • MAMAZ says:

      Yes, I think Jill is egging Kelly on with the Bethenny thing.

    • lillybee says:

      Definitely, I really think that Jill was responsible for Kelly’s breakdown.

    • SusanS88 says:

      Yeppers! Have said the same myself a few times. Glad others see how obvious it is once you look back. And now Jill is reaping her reward. Can you imagine trying to get “rid” of Kelly as a friend?

      • kathy says:

        It is , isn’t it? I was watching and thinking, “channeling the devil” , “Bethenny is scary”, “I’m afraid of Bethenny” Jill has fed all this crap to Kelly for months and Kelly would be just the one to fall for it. It sounds very sneaky and mean and hard to believe it’s true. I guess I’m naive; but ,I thought this only happened on soap operas!

  124. LucyHPotter says:

    Interview from TWOP…I know, they suck but it’s a good interview! Bethenny keeps it real…She comments on Babygate!

    Bethenny Frankel’s Real Housewives of New York spin-off Bethenny Getting Married? begins tonight (with the goddamn stupidest question mark in the history of television), and while I’m on the fence as to whether it will be awesome or unforgivably boring, I do know that the media call Bethenny participated in to promote the show ended up being all about how Jill Zarin is the devil and how Kelly Bensimon is the mayor of crazytown, which is definitely awesome. I mean, I only posted like a tenth of it, because it got pretty redundant. Read on for the gloriously catty highlights.

    The show seems more light-hearted than Real Housewives. Was that intentional?

    Bethenny Frankel: Housewives — how do I explain it? It doesn’t really show me in my true light. I mean you see bits and pieces of me, and you can kind of get the sense of me. I’m not a woman that really hangs out with a lot of women. I really focus mostly on work and, when I’m in a relationship, on my relationship. And so this kind of just gets more micro.

    It really gets into the real details of my life. It’s not like big blowouts at cocktail, or what do I call it, charity events. Like I’m not at charity events on Dynasty every day. I don’t really go out that much. I’m pretty much home in my pajamas most of the time, unless I have to go somewhere for work. I do that once in a while, but it’s not really the main course of my life, which this show kind of shows the nonsense in my life.

    Are you integrating other Housewives into the show to make appearances? And will Jill appear on the show?

    BF: It’s only to the extent that what’s really going on in my life. This isn’t like anyone’s being hired or it’s an appearance. Jill is not on my show because Jill’s not in my life.

    Has Jill reached out to you at all during this time — made an attempt?

    BF: No. Not this recent time. I mean of course I saw her at the reunion, and there was that. And she has reached out a couple of times in the last couple of months. There have been a lot of changes on the show. The show has kind of showed everything. But, you know, she’s not in my life anymore.

    Might you be pulling out of Real Housewives to focus on the new show?

    BF: I think it’s not a cliché when I say I don’t believe in staying at a party too long. And I just don’t know what else there is to do there. If I had a lesser part in it and I just dipped in and dipped out once in a while, maybe.

    What am I going to say — what is there to say to Jill? There’s nothing to say to Jill. I mean she had a nervous breakdown on my show. Like, I don’t know what there is to say. I see Alex and Ramona on my show, which is really, really nice and pleasant.

    So I don’t know. The purpose I have on the Housewives is to comment, I feel like. Not because anyone tells me to, because it’s who I am. So I guess if they still need my running commentary and I suppose the Greek chorus, perhaps I would do it. I just don’t know. You’re seeing my life here, so I don’t know what I would be doing there.

    On Twitter, Kelly and Dina have called you “scary” or “intimidating.” What do you think of that?

    BF: Well, I mean Kelly’s got this whole nonsense bullying angle she’s working right now, which is idiotic. She’s a 41-year-old woman. So anything she says you can’t really even listen to, because she’s out of her mind and certifiable.

    But Dina is really sweet. And Dina’s a really nice girl that doesn’t get into the fray. And she’s not — I mean she’s Italian and her sister’s a tough girl, but Dina is just like a really sweet, nice Jersey girl, so I could see her thinking I’m a little bit scary.

    I mean I could be — I grew up at the racetrack. I’m a little street, and I’m definitely a little rough around the edges and a scrapper, but I get it.

    How come Bravo chose you for your own series and not Jill getting, you know, a hobby, or Kelly getting therapy? How come Bethenny Getting Married?

    BF: First of all me getting married does involve other people. Kelly in therapy would involve a shrink and a padded room, so that might not be interesting for a whole hour. And Jill getting a hobby is probably going to take a little longer than by the time production would get up. So that said, I don’t know why. I really don’t. I guess, you know, they said they did focus groups to see what the viewer wants.

    What were your thoughts on Jill announcing on Twitter the birth of your baby before anybody else did and inaccurately saying it was a boy?

    BF: My honest reaction was she can’t get out of her own way. And it wasn’t like she had to pick the winner of the Kentucky Derby. All she had to do was go with a 50/50 guess and she still didn’t get it right.

    • Squirrels says:

      Oh crap, I can see it now. Jill snuggling with Andy:
      “Annnnnndyyyyy, Bethenny agrees I should have my own show called ‘Jill Gets A Hobby’. I think it’s a great idea. You need a new show Andy since NJ is hitting Skid Row and you know I’ve always been your ‘It Girl’. Come on…. Waddya say? I have, right outside the door, a total hunk here to give you a BJ. Come onnnnnn.”

  125. Squirrels says:

    Well, here’s my take on why Jill is in high gear. On The View, Bethenny revealed Jill tried to alienate B’s on-camera relationships with the other women. Seems to me, going directly after a cast mate’s livelihood is going to come out at the reunion because it affects all cast members. At this point Jill is doing anything and everything she can to garner sympathy and pre-salvage (oxymoron I know) her bid to continue next season.

    Jill’s out for blood because this show finally gave her status. She was in the press. Fans loved her. She was special. Everything she never had was now at her feet. “Take THAT my old high school bullies.”

    In one line, JILL NEEDS THIS SHOW.

    She needs it like air. Imagine fame at your fingertips. You can smell that wonderful, famous, fabulous scent in the breeze. She’s fighting for her life, and we all know she fights dirty.

    • MAMAZ says:

      Yep. She feels it slipping away and she’s scratching and clawing to hang on. Too bad she didn’t realize that if she cared less about fame and more about friendship she wouldn’t have lost anything at all.

    • SusanS88 says:

      Oh Squirrels – nail meet head!!! Great insight

  126. Tootsie says:

    WHAT!!!! (I’m so NJ)……… Jill tried to interfere with Alex and Simon’s cocktail party? Has she just hired the CIA and FBI to keep close tabs on what is going on in the lives of her class-mates so she can interfere? OMG she really is on the slippery slope to nutsoville with Krazy Kellie.

  127. BamaBelle says:

    I have a question?

    Does anybody know why Kelly would attend Ramona’s wedding after she told everybody in her blog that they all bullied her. She said to Ramona that she didn’t “have her back” at that stupid skating thing Jill had. She also told Jill, LuAnn and Jennifer that she didn’t want anything to do with those women!

    And if she had such a HORRIBLE time, the whole time, as she claimed, why did she give Ramona that album with the pictures in it? Wouldn’t it make sense that she would decline to go anywhere Ramona, Bethenny and Alex were at, especially since Bethenny was there.

    If I accussed someone of going after my “little girls” and planting lies about me in the press… if I accussed several women of harrassing me on a vacation to the point I had to leave. Then, show or no show… no way would I go near them, much less bring a gift.

    Kelly is seriously mental… why does her ex-husband let her keep custody of those girls, especially after Kelly was accussed of assaulting an ex-boyfriend and apparently had to do community service. Isn’t it funny in the first episode, Kelly acted like it was her idea to do community service and she got to chose where! I believe they let her chose, but her punishment was community service. Doesn’t that mean she was found guilty?

    • vgirl511 says:

      Kelly said she was being the ‘bigger person’ by going to Ramona’s wedding (although she did not rsvp)…..either that or she was ‘forced’ by Bravo to go.

      • Ellabean says:

        And thus the was born the running joke:
        Kelly is always the ‘bigger person’ at 6 ft. something.

      • dee says:

        Not RSVP’ing is so gauche. Wonder what Countess Crackerjack really thinks about that.

    • Ellabean says:

      I think Kelly went to Ramona’s ceremony because, really in this case, they all knew it was the closing of Season #3 with this “party” denouement episode – as is done for every Housewives’ franchise season end. Plus she knew the other wives were there for ‘protection’: Jill and LuAnn.

    • MickeyMouth says:

      Jill and Luann were there to hold er I mean back her up.

    • error 404 says:

      because Kiki thinks she is on RHoNJ, and that the dark haired crazy woman they keep talking about non stop is using one of her many alias, Bethenny Frankel.

    • SusanS88 says:

      And therein lies the “lie” that Besimon is living in order to get more screen time/publicity, courtesy of JZs manipulation. To me, it all seems to make sense when I start asking the “why” questions, and then match that with what one would know about these people being in a show with whatever agenda they might have. Then “Bingo!” It almost makes sense!

  128. shantygal says:

    I would love for Bravo to put out a DVD of uncut footage of the trip AND the reunion. YES Bravo, people will buy that, unlike the crapass t-shirts and self-hurt book Shill is hawking.

    Wouldn’t you guys buy one? There’d be a lot of boring, mundane stuff but so what? You could easily fast forward through that part. I would sit through 10 hours of footage just to see if there was one second of bullying as The Distrubed One claims. Bravo spies, are you listening?

    • RileyKitty says:

      I would not only buy it, I would sit through every sec of the footage, not ffwding through any of it.

    • Anitabee says:

      Bravo does have the making on the number #1 most viewed cable show off all time on their cutting room floor.

      If they were to broadcast a 2 hour “LOST FOOTAGE OF SCARY ISLAND” Bravo would have Titanic sized ratings that would go down in history. Unfortunately they would have to promise to catch Kelly in the wilds of NYC, put her in a straightjacket, and have her committed to Bellevue.

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

    So basically, Jill’s throwing a tantrum that would make a 2 year old cringe all because you planned a cocktail party for Alex & Simon, but no one went out of their way for her. What.a.bitch.

  130. PFinFL says:

    OK. Watching marathon still & just noticed Jill dissing Sonja early on. It was so mean! She told LuAnn’s man that if he put his tongue down Sonja’s throat, she might let him sit @ the table? Did I hear that right? Yuck!

    • shantygal says:

      Yeah, you heard right. Another thing Jill is jealous of. Real men want to be with Sonja for reasons other than BJ’s for joory.

    • BamaBelle says:

      You heard that right!

      Later on Sonja said she didn’t know why Jill would say that to her friend, Courte (I’m sure I didn’t spell his name right) that she’s known for many friends.

      I definately think Sonja and Jill will definately get into it next season. Jill has to be going CRAZY that Sonja has been getting good reviews from the fans.

    • BamaBelle says:

      Yep… You heard that right.

      Sonja said in one of her blogs (I think it was in her blogs) that she didn’t know why Jill would say that to her good friend, Corte (spelling?) whom she’s known for many years. I wonder if Sonja fixed LuAnn up with him?

      • BamaBelle says:

        Opps… Sorry about the double post. I tried to stop the first one because I meant to say… many years, not many friends… LOL!

        Now I see the cancel reply button, LOL!

        But, while I’m here again. I’m listening to the re-runs. Alex just said “Bethenny’s pregnat” and was so excited and happy. Alex was much more happy for Bethenny than Jill. Jill was suppose to have been B’s best friend. Jill is just a HORRIBLE person… why am I torturing myself my watching today?

  131. Bravo fan says:

    Jill tweets that she is heading out east and will watch the show out there. I wonder where she will stay – Luanne’s house? Also I bet she is twitching knowing that Bethanny will be on with Andy on WWHL and her new show airs as well. She must be flipping out. Wonder if her peps are setting up anymore media ploys. She has got to have something to deflect the attention off B. Would not put it past her to create a massive blackout at 9pm to 12am.

  132. Jen says:

    I have a question…

    In the Daily Beast…
    ‘Of all the women, Singer is the one who seems the most concerned with Bensimon’s state of mind. “I was frightened by what I saw,” Singer says. “I didn’t let the cameras follow me but when I found out Kelly was leaving [the island], I called Jill and asked her to meet Kelly at the airport to make sure she was OK.” (At this point in the interview, a publicist piped in to say that conversations about what goes on behind-the-scenes aren’t permitted—odd, since production comments weren’t a problem before this point.’

    My question is not about Kelly (yikes!) but about the publicist’s statement – “conversations about what goes on behind the scenes are not permitted”.

    Why didn’t it come up on the show that Jill was trying to get some of the HW to not go to St. John and instead go on a trip with her or that she tried to get them to not tape with Bethenny as a reason for their fight? And why wasn’t it revealed that Ramona and Bethenny both spoke to Jill about meeting Kelly at the airport and she didn’t do it? I’m sure there are other things but those are the ones that come to mind.

    It has come out in cast blogs and Bethenny’s View spot today but now on the show itself. The timing says they knew while taping so how and who controls that? Bravo editing? Is it an contract agreement the cast has to adhere to? Is it scripting?

    Just trying to understand how this works? If it didn’t START on tape, it can’t be part of the storyline?

    • HD says:

      It may come out but they cut out what they don’t want to show. They can’t show everything. Even though I wish they would. 🙂

      • Jen says:

        Yeah, I get that to a certain extent but… wouldn’t it be hard to cut out? If I was B, I would have said it at Ramona’s apt when meeting w/ Jill and if I was Ramona, I would have said it in the car with Sonja or on the yacht. And I would have kept saying it whenever the scene was about Jill ‘meanness’ to call Jill on it.

        I hope it all gets brought up on the reunion shows.

        Bravo editing must have so much fun at work!

        • kathy says:

          Right now I’m watching Kelly tell BOLDFACED LIES at lunch with Jill, LuAnn and Jennifer! Saying B admitted siccing the press on her and her family. Can’t stand it!

  133. Ellabean says:

    I want to see Jill’s high school picture.

  134. Viki55 says:

    My refresh isn’t working. Wanted to see what would happen if I posted.

    • vgirl511 says:

      the same thing was happening to me…..it was saying page not found, but seems to be ok now. I bet Jill had something to do with it!

      • Viki55 says:

        Yup! Same thing. I was starting to panic! Where would we all meet? I even checked her old hub pages:)

        • vgirl511 says:

          I did too! They all said not found except the Mothers Day one. I am close to where Jill says she is heading today, it was making me nervous!

  135. Smompy says:

    LOL Richard Lawson always cracks me up! I love that under Teresa & Juicy’s mable mansion’s features he lists:

    “Certified Classy™ brand garden decorations (including fountain and Sicilian peasants)
    Tanning studio

    Italian sex swing
    Large, whirring forehead enlargener machine in the basement (may not be functional)

      I’m going to watch drinking a Riesling tonight. I need something sweet to balance out the bitter taste that Jill leaves behind.

  137. Squirrels says:

    Hmmm. Kelly’s line during the opening credits is, “I’ve created a great life, and I love living it.”
    Can someone please direct me to all those accomplishments she has “created”? Thank you in advance.

    • Viki55 says:

      I always wonder why she thinks she can create life. To quote LuMan, “who does she think the is? Who made her God?”

  138. desertgal66 says:

    “At this point in the interview, a publicist piped in to say that conversations about what goes on behind-the-scenes aren’t permitted”.

    What in the hell is this publicist talking about?

    Every single one of the Housewives (and a couple of the husbands and kids) have commented about what goes on behind the scenes. They do it in their blogs, they do it in interviews, they do it in sound bites, they do it all the time. Granted, it is usually not in depth, but they still do it. Ramona didn’t say anything more about what happened in St. John than Bethenny, Alex, and Sonja already had.

    • Jen says:

      That caught my attention, too. Is that specific to Kelly to protect her or is this a reality rule?

      • desertgal66 says:

        Beats me, but I would say, since viewers have had the opportunity to not only watch Kelly meltdown in the VI, but carry on with her meltdown in the months since with her inane Tweets, pictures, etc, it’s a little late for Bravo to be taking a “protect Kelly” position.

        The beast is out of her cage. Too late to stuff her back in.

        • Dolce says:

          I read somewhere that what is left on the cutting room floor and what happened after the cameras stopped rolling would be extremely bad for Kelly. Now what does that REALLY mean? If it’s that bad something serious should be done about the situation (s). Doesn’t look like anything was done to help Kelly after she returned. So……what gives Bravo?

          Could it be to protect themselves from a lawsuit of some nature? One can only guess.

          • SusanS88 says:

            Hi, I’m Susan and I’m an addict (j/k! err i think?)

            Argghhh…where did I read it? That one of the things that happened was Kelly sitting on her bed, rocking back and forth (like an autistic child might? props to those who picked that poss up) saying repeatedly that Bethenny was trying to kill her. I swear I read that, just can’t recall where. And Bravo turned off the cam’s and got her the hell out of there.

            That would jive with the statement that if they showed what really happened it could hurt Kelly (her reputation and subsequent ability to earn a living for one, her kids for two). I have a feeling that even more happened b/c I recall seeing, and this might have been in comments so stands out less to me that she and B got in a serious yelling match (with lots o curse words) and that Kelly was pacing around the property talking to herself. Just some of this stuff I’ve caught and because I read everything I just cannot recall where. However, the first thing I mentioned I recall as being from a “source.”

            Not trying to defend her here in any way b/c that girl has no biz being on this show. But the world of celebrities and fashion and so on is very shallow. Plus, those folks have to be incredibly protective of who they are and their lives, as you might imagine. So here’s Kelly, already somewhat disabled, who practically is introduced to life as an adult in this type of world. It’s insular and it’s secretive and it’s protective (not reality tv mind you, but fashion and real celebrities). I still think she has a disability, a mental illness or a drug habit but it certainly explains why a woman of 40+ years absolutely has no tools or smarts whatsoever to handle anything, including making fucking pancakes!

            Okay, I’m done. I would like to thank my support group for hearing me out 😉

    Lynn I love the blog and the tweets, keep up the good work. As for Jill’s smear campaign. . .well she tried to basically muscle Bethenny out of the show this season because she was jealous of Bethenny’s success (new show) and now she is reaping what she sowed. She can’t stand the fact that Alex and Simon’s book is (most likely) more successful than hers is and that people really are really enjoying them, on and off the show. It is eating her alive that she isn’t a part of Bethenny’s new show and other Housewives are. If she was as great a person as she is always telling everyone is then she would be happy for others and quit trying to ruin the good things that are happening for them. She is filled with negativity and now she has to deal with the consequences of her own PETTY actions.

    Lynn, I have some SERIOUS ISSUES with you, your site, and all of the people that post here. I have never posted comments on any blogs ever and up until a few weeks ago I wasn’t a blog reader, until now… and that is entirely your fault. I am a very busy “Philadelphia Housewife” with two great kids, a great house, and a full time job I love. I had balance in my life and was very content until now and it is your fault!
    Instead of being the dedicated employee I used to be, I am reading your blog during the day… after my kids go to bed I am back on the computer reading the comments… you and these other people have taken some of the “balance” out of my life!!!
    Seriously thought, I have been a watcher of the show for some time and I really love your blog and the opinions of those that follow it. It is great to see how many other share the opinions I have had for the longest time…
    Jill is “Trunk Worthy”… meaning she belongs in the trunk of Thelma and Louise’s car
    Kelly is in need of some serious help (of the professional kind) and should not be on the show
    Alex is a wonderful mother, an honest person, and a good role model
    Bethany is fantastic and is a great example of Karma… good things happen to good people
    LuAnn – Really a nasty person at heart with no class at all. If she removed the stick from her butt I would say that she has the potential to be a contributing factor to the human race.
    Ramona – she is who she is. That in itself is pretty admirable and when in a pinch she is there for you
    Sonja – I like her so far…
    Anyway, just want to say damn you for the disruption to my life as well as THANK you to you and your followers for all of your wonderful, entertaining, and educational comments.

      Anita Vacation says: – June 10, 2010 at 12:27 pm
      Glad to see Jill is still diabological, Kelly more delusional than ever, and everything seems right in the world because of that.

      Oh, and BTW–the *only* reason why Jill is siding with Kelly is that no one gives a rat’s ass about Countless and Kelly’s knack for keeping herself in the headlines is Jill’s most attractive option as far as her media whoring goes.


      Now will SOMEONE who saw the view to day give the dish on what really happened to Jill and Bethenny?

      Purty please?

  142. Carriesweets says:

    I’ve been watching the NY marathon today, and something Jill said really bothered me…
    She said she wanted to “go home” and “hide under her covers” b/c she wasn’t prepared to talk to B at that party. Is this HS? Hide under your covers? She’s so dramatic, it’s disgusting.
    She also stated to Sonja and LuAnn that she wanted to “keep her circle tight”.
    Um, last time I checked, they are ALL on the show, so when Jill said that I LOL. It’s PROOF to me that Jill was indeed trying to get people to choose sides, and trying to get people not to tape with B.
    When Jill and Bethenny were close, Jill knew how B felt about Kelly, they weren’t getting along, and I’m sure B confided in Jill about that. When Jill and B had their falling out, Jill was all about gossiping about B, I’m sure she told Kelly ALL kinds of things that B had told her in confidence.
    Like the “channeling the devil comment” that both Jill and Kelly used this season.
    It is apparent to me that Jill IS indeed using Kelly to hurt B.
    I hate JZ

    Sorry to B a damper but as a newbee I ned help, have joined up as of 24hrs been adding quite a bit etc have checked the”notify me box” a couple of X’s but obviously didn’t expect as many em sooooooo pleas tell me how to undo the em responses. Thank you

  144. PFinFL says:

    Carriesweets: I noticed that too & thought that Jill honestly can’t take the heat because she knows she’s wrong!

  145. DeeWhoLovesAlex says:

    Watching the housewives (you know the ones who don’t do dishes or mop floors) and can’t stop running off at the mouth. JZ sucks (her own admission) but man can that man run. If you will not agree or take her side she “IS DONE”. Anyone (except Ginger of course) afraid yet?

  146. kokuanani says:

    I had an idea with regard to “Season 4” and “Bethenny Getting married?” — you know how all of us are saying, “get rid of Jill, Kelly and the Countless”? At the same time, we’d like to see more of Bethenny, Alex, Ramona and Sonja?

    Well, why not

    1) Kill off Real Housewives of NYC. Drive a stake through it.

    2) Modify “Bethenny’s Getting Married?” and extend it. Keep the focus on Bethenny, but change it to something like “Having It All?” After all, she’s now got a husband, a baby, a career. How is she going to juggle them [and still make room for her “fabulous circle of friends” — i.e., Alex, Ramona, Sonja]?

    Now THAT would be an interesting show, one I’d watch.

  147. I Can't Stand The Toxicity says:

    I didn’t get a chance to see Bethenny’s appearance on The View but my co-worker did and she told me that Bethenny said she would consider coming back to RHONY with a different cast. Did anyone else hear her say this?

    • Squirrels says:

      Yes and no. B said (paraphrase) she would probably not come back with the same cast. That’s a bit different from what your co-worker told you. Yet, the world continues to go round.

      Well, I can’t speak for Jill.

  148. kokuanani says:

    Another thought [kills weeds in the garden always bring on thoughts of JZ and friends:

    You know how Jill, the Countless and Kelly suddenly started peddling the “Kelly was bullied” meme, based solely on Kelly’s “recollection” [snicker] of what happened on the boat/island?

    a) The stupidity of this — relying on Crazy Kelly rather than getting additional sources of “facts” — is obvious; and

    b) How much of this “line” occurred after the show had wrapped for the season? Because once the season was over, the DVDs of the prior “episodes” were available. Any of these loons could have viewed both “Poison Island” episodes on their very own DVR and seen everyone’s actions.

    For them to try to characterize this whole fiasco as “Kelly got bullied,” relying solely on Kelly’s retelling is STUPID, and to do so after viewing the DVDs [or not viewing the DVDs when they had the opportunity to] is dishonest and makes them as delusional as Kelly.

    Cannot WAIT for tonight! I hope that Bethenny backs up Alex. Jill can be a bulldozer when she gets started and I hope Alex holds her own. Also, Andy Cohen better get a backbone and ask the tough questions.

    And because I am TYPICAL of Philadelphia sports fans, the Blackhawks were the better team. the Flyers just didn’t want it bad enough, or they ran out of energy. Congratulations and I look forward to a photo of you drinking out of the Stanley Cup…

    • DeeWhoLovesAlex says:

      Alex holds her own and makes us shy gals (or guys) proud. Still mad at Simon for not being the wingman Alex needed against Jill. That is why I don’t love Silex. Just the Lady Alex. If you don’t like it, too bad.

  151. lillybee says:

    I just watched a bit of the Brooklyn Fashion show and noticed something for the first time. The man Ramona was sharing her Pinot with said to her “thank you for the jewelry”. My thought was that Ramona supplied all the models with jewelry for the show. Then Jill got all snarky over the jewelry Ramona was wearing. I think this is why Ramona wore her necklace backwards when she walked. In my opinion Jill did everything possible to make Ramona lose confidence at that show. Nasty Jill.

    • Ellabean says:

      Bingo ! Spot on – never thought of that.

      Yep – Jill made that snarky remark about Ramona’s choice of necklace not being right for the dress she modeled – because it was Jill’s way of taking one huge swipe at Ramon’s entire jewelry line – and the opportunity to show it there.

      And I wont forget when Jill walked away from Ramona backstage at that fashion show – glared directly at the camera (broke “the 4th wall” – a no no ) and made a gagging face by sticking her tongue down her mouth.

      Oh my gawd – she is one bee-otch.

    • Squirrels says:

      Astute take on it Lillybee. I agree she did it because of Jill. Add to that your input re: her donating jewelry and it makes perfect sense.

  152. Squirrels says:

    I think we should all channel Ramona this evening and vampire her Pinot Grigio ass. Hopefully, the result is one hell of a laugh-fest. I for one would like to be able to sleep tonight.
    I’ll keep that video redo with the laugh track in the back of my mind. If that doesn’t keep Jill off my nerves, I’ll just “shhhhuderrrr down” and turn to mainlining grapes.

    (crosses fingers, then makes pact with Satan….. no not Jill, give me SOME credit).

  153. Kotagirl says:

    Another issue I want to get off my chest. Earlier today Teresa tweeted this: New interview on AOL with PopEater. Check it out: http://tinyurl.com/2cclcnz. I read the article and in it she makes some statements about the excessive spending we saw (the viewer’s) being years ago and they have tightened their belts now. She apparently thinks that the viewer’s (with some exceptions) are idiots and we couldn’t figure out for ourselves that she was still spending like an idiot $1900 (put on a credit card) a few episodes ago when the court papers were filed in Oct. 2009 9 well before filming for the new season started. If that is tightening the belt I can only imagine what she was spending before. Two questions, how can she have a credit card after bankruptcy how studpid does she think we are?

    Just finished watching the “I wrote a homework paper about asking boys if they wear underwear , and my teacher is giving me a party”, episode. Kelloonybin stands on a table, for the first time in her life!! and then claps and does the “yayeeeeeeee” when disembarking. I got a total Stuart vibe when seeing that again. Remember Stuart from Mad TV, portrayed by Michael McDonald? “Look what I can do”. Always stuffing his face with candy too! Kelly is the female Stuart – Stuelly.

    Mickey Mouth, if you’re so inclined, please make a Stuart/Kelly photo mash-up. Please?

    • anniieee says:

      @kellyhannah…wow great video. Jill always has an excuse “Alex found her voice” hinting that Alex would have been let go. Then she goes on to make horrible excuses for being a vile human being that is only concerned with Jill. She mentions haters and lawsuits over Amazon.. What a piece of dog do stuck on the shoe of Coocookellysmelly.

    • Kat says:

      Excellent! Thankyou for posting this.

    • Squirrels says:

      “Earlier this week, viewers of SpottedInBoston.com, PatriotLedger.com and HullSun.com saw an exclusive interview that took place with Jill Zarin last Saturday, in which she stated her belief that she feels Bravo dragged out the infamous catfight between herself and her former bff from last season, Bethenny Frankel.”

      Ok, last bastion. Jill sees the handwriting, she’s petrified of being shit canned. Her only defense will be to assume she gets the axe and then PR wise gets to give her spin beginning with…. “I told you so”.

      I smell a conspiracy theory headed to your area soon.

  158. Squirrels says:

    I have a confession. I fantasize Jill is sans contract next season. Suddenly, a ferocious wind blows through her apartment. Glass flies. Dogs duck. In the flash of an eye blink, 500 costumed Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer extras appear and begin a rousing chorus of

    …… “which ol’ witch?”

    Hi ho, merry-o and enjoy the show tonight.

  161. kokuanani says:

    I’m re-watching the Pantry Pity Party and other assorted episodes, and I’m struck by how much “narration” [talking head time] Jill gets. Again and again the camera goes to her for “interpretation” of the events.

    Yet despite the HUGE “advantage” Jill has to slant viewers’ impressions, we STILL hate her!!!

    Jill just can’t seem to realize that the BEST thing she could do for her “reputation” is to get off the air. Seriously, the more her despicable behavior, braying voice and generally obnoxious self appear on tv, the greater the crowds of “haters” will be.

    • DeeWhoLovesAlex says:

      She will never “get off the air” unless this site reads Why I love….. Lynn I will follow you under any name or title you decide to use. “Lynn Rocks” could be one.

      • DeeWhoLovesAlex says:

    It looks like Simon and Alex are doing a lot more book signings that Jill. I hope that they are selling more books.

  163. Squirrels says:

    OH… and btw, I have a real bone to pick with Jill. She hires Olympic gold medalist Sarah Hughes to coach her return to the ice. (wish they taped those negotiations. Would love to hear what Jill’s expectations/requirements were). We see her performing like she hasn’t seen her own pair of skates for 40 years, has the nerve to be insulted by the “crazy coach”. On top of which, she’s bent over like a character out of a Victor Hugo novel. Ok, maybe she got chewed out and then hired Hughes. Either way….
    I could say wot a putz. Instead I’ll say,
    TOE PICK…. duh.

    • Ellabean says:


      And remember the tennis match she was so insistent on doing last season between she and Mario /Ramona. She kept dropping the name : Justin Gimmelfarb. I don’t know who he is – but she inferrred that he was a top rated pro on the US tennis circuit. Well as you know – he didn’t show. And she was SO competitive about this match and dogged Mario for weeks on the phone about setting it all up.

      Just who does she think she is….? A tennis pro was supposed to be her partner in doubles – this schlocky housewife…?

      Delusions of grandeur.

  164. Hooked On Housewives says:

    I was watching Sonja on the VI episode where she smells cat pee. Since the ladies were on a gazillion dollar boat/yacht I’m wondering if the smell was brought up to the captain. Just seems as though on such a foo foo trip any disgusting smell would be brought to the attention of those in charge. Maybe the answer is in the lost footage.

    • mariareads says:

      So what are the odds that Kelly was removed from the island by producers for: 1. literally going nuts 2. going nuts and being drunk 3. going nuts because of drug use.

      If that area of the boat smelled like cat pee wouldn’t have those women said something about the smell when they first came down those stairs to the state rooms? Nobody said a word and I can’t see Ramona keeping her mouth shut about something like that. Personally I would be calling for some explanation that the bedroom area smelled like cat pee. Just speculating here. It’s strange. Did anyone catch the semi smile on Sonja’s face when she said it smelled like cat pee? If you watch that episode again check out the look on her face. It’s almost a smirk and I like Sonja so no offense intended to her. Did she know something?

      I’m so pathetic. Husband won’t be home from a business trip until late tonight. I have to walk 3 miles and get some exercise in but I’m fixated on these 2 shows tonight! At least 3 episodes of Reunion might get me all the way to the 1st episode of Big Brother! (yes, I read books but one does not live by books alone!).

      • anniieee says:

        • Ellabean says:

          BINGO ! Spot on observation, Maria.

          “If that area of the boat smelled like cat pee wouldn’t have those women said something about the smell when they first came down those stairs to the state rooms? Nobody said a word and I can’t see Ramona keeping her mouth shut about something like that.

          Sometimes we overlook the obvious. That smell was NOT THERE earlier when they first toured the boat. In NO WAY would the ladies not have complained if it was !

  165. Ellabean says:

    Watching the marathon. Just caught a possibly over looked Kelly – line:

    The ladies have just landed in the Virgin Islands. First time waking aboard the yacht. Everyon ooo-ing and ahh-ing at how nice it is. Ramona yells out: ” Wow – Jill is going to be mad that she missed this – she will be ‘eatting crow’. Then Kelly says in the background – not very loudly: “Uh..eating …what ?”

    Not like Kelly didn’t hear the last word crow – it was more like she didn’t get it – another IDIOM she didn’t get. And you know what comes in the next scene at lunch on the boat: lemons into lemonade – and don’t stomp on those grapes because I am going to eat them.

    She really needs to brush up on her “literature”. (sarcastic)

    Enjoy the shows tonight

    • MickeyMouth says:

      I didn’t see The View what did she say about Omarosa?

      • Kotagirl says:

        She said that Omarosa used the reality shows to become infamous. Whereas she (Bethenny) used the show to create her career. What show does Omarosa have? She can’t have a very good career going if no one knows what it is. And if that really was her comments on Perez then she is trying to cash in on all the press one gets from just mentioning Bethenny’s name. Sounds familiar, who else does that. . . . . .oh yeah, Jill.

      • boston02127 says:

        @MickeyMouth~~They said Omarosa is really Jill’s long lost sister.

    • mariareads says:

      Where was I when she mentioned Omarosa? I don’t remember that at all. It might have been while I was retching over The View women. Sorry, sorry, sorry. I can’t stand a single one of those harpies. Blech!

      • anniieee says:

        I hated Omoarosa then and hate her even more now…she is evidently getting a show..so she started this crap..and Perez is a jerk…pigs .both of them AND OMAROSA GOT BOOBS..they are separated ..and hanging funny..

        here it is: thanks for the heads up Mickey Mouth…

        Bethenny Frankel of The Real Housewives of New York appeared on The View on Thursday and had some comments about notorious reality tv villain Omarosa and her career.

        Well Omarosa is fighting back at Bethenny and her gay husband (O’s words!) and here is her response, exclusively to PerezHilton.com:

        “Bethenny’s comments about me and my career on VIEW today were unprovoked anduncalled for. I have always been cool with Bethenny and we have never has any beef.

        Today she tried to act like her show was superior to my new show and her book was superior to my book or her career was superior, I was surprised that she went there with me!! She got her start or the Apprentice just like me. She is on a NBC show just like I was. She is making a living in the world of reality just like me.


        I have never once said a bad word about her or all of the rumor swirling around about Jason and his sexuality – EVERYONE knows he’s gay but we never said anything- because she was HAPPY.

        When she got a tummy tuck with her c-section after the baby and pretended that she just LOST the baby weight NATURALLY – none of us said anything because she was happy.

        But now that she is hurling insults at EVERYONE including her Real House Wives cast mates and people like me who have always had her back- the gloves are off.

        Bethenny Karma is a BITCH and so are you!!”

          Re: Bethenney’ s appearance on The View today .

          No No ! Perez is full of shit.And he lies.

          I saw the show. View co-host, Sherri Shepard brought up the fact reality show people can then parlay their reality show stardom into a career. Sherri then used Omarsosa as an example – and Bethenney diplomatically corrected her – and added , well Elisabeth Hasselbeck is a better example of a reality show person moving on to a larger career (from Survivor to View co-host).

          Whoopi Goldberg had no idea who Omarossa was.

      You know what Omarosa has had plastic surgery (needs more in my opinion) and is a gay man himself, so what is really his problem. Oh yeah Bethenny is successful.

    Watching the marathon today, it’s even more apparent, when you see all this season’s episodes back to back, how passive aggressive Jill behaved towards Bethenny. Well, everyone really, but Bethenny in particular.

    Things I’m sick of hearing:
    1. Jill: “Ramona invited ALL of us.” Yeah, she did, Jill, and you said NO.
    2. Kelly: “The other four bullied me.” For crissake, Kellamity, YOU were the aggressor. They caught it all on camera, you halfwit. You know, that funny machine the guy is always holding on his shoulder? See, he KNOWS how to work it.
    3. LuAnn: “I can’t believe Bethenny called me a snake, and Mario called me Countless.” Oh, for the love of impeccable etiquette, Lulu, get over it.
    4. Kelly: “I’m real…normal…genuine…authentic…”. Live it, baby, don’t recite it.
    5. LuAnn: “I can sing…”. No, my darling. You can’t.
    6. LuAnn’s producer: “That’s what I’m talkin’ about.” Great. Could you stop talking about it now?
    7. Jill, Kelly: “The show is a platform for being charitable.” Sure. Glop in the ocean? Call Kelly. A couple of Tweets from her and it’s all good.
    8. Jill: “It’s all Alex’s fault. She made Ramona throw me out. And she didn’t even let me pee!” Yeah. That was tough luck, Jill. I feel bad.
    9. Kelly: “Bethenny is a freak…crazy…a predator…she went after my kids and me in the press every. single. day.” Prove it, Blanche. STELLLLLAA!!

      OH, my total favorite !

    I have another bone to pick. Someone please call Ginger as I may soon be in need of a new supply of lamb chop remnants.

    As regards the four on one claim – I note that the first time Kelly and Sonja have an altercation (of sorts) is when KELLY says, “we know the past”, as in shut up no one cares. Still Sonja refuses to engage her baiting tactics.

    Yep, one sick woman.

    on the yacht,

    love that Alex is a good friend & goes with Ramona instead of listening to crazycrackhoKelly

    love that Beth lovingly kisses Sonja and hugs her while glaring over at Kelly for insulting Sonja

    love Bethenny hi-tailing it to the Hooters boat to ESCAPE THE INSANITY!

    love the PinotLovingVampire that is Bethenny!

    Beth said something about how some reality stars crash and burn and used Osarosa (SP) as an example. She also said something like some like Hasselback were able to parlay it into real careers.

  174. kokuanani says:

    Just watching the portion of the re-run where Alex & Bethenny are having a discussion on the boat while the others “do their hair.”

    What struck me is how authentic their exchange is: asking each other questions, listening, relating.

    This is SO far from what any kind of exchange with Jill — or Kelly – ever is.

  175. DeeWhoLovesAlex says:

    Kelly really is sick. REALLY SICK. Please can we leave her out of the picture. JZ is just a bit of work. A wantabestar who hires 4 pr people to send not only a picture but 3 different comments to a porn? site. (Sorry DIRT don’t really know what kind of site you are but is porn ok?) Why do we induldge this person? Please Lynn change your site name to Who the F is Jill Zaren? Love this site. Booooooooooooby when the f is ginger I just made some maza balls. (Cut to Boooooy looking down at his pants).

    Every week I watch RHONY.
    Every week my hubby wanders in the room, sits on the couch and looks like he is busy checking his Blackberry, with a comment of “why do you watch this S**T?

    He just texted me: “Plane lands at 6:30pm, what time does that show start?”

    LOL – sounds like we have another pantry fan…..
