I Hate Jill Zarin Reunion Part 2 Tonight June 14, 2010
What do we expect for tonight’s reunion episode?
We know that Ramona gave us a hint that two people walk off and one stomps her foot. I think most of us guessed who did those things but now we know for sure that Jill and Kelly walk off and Ramona stomps her foot! How fun!
There have been so many recaps and blogs and articles about the first part of the reunion episode with so many different perspectives. Was Andy too hard on Jill Zarin? They focused on the war between Bethenny and Jill – Bravo knows what the fans want. We need to hear all of this rehashed over and over, don’t we? It is time to see Jill confronted and get her reactions. I don’t think that Jill’s off camera antics were discussed at all. (Amazongate, Babygate or all of Jill’s rants on Social Networks)
Personally, I think I may just count the number of times Jill Zarin says, “I’m sorry”. I have a feeling her PR team of four told her to say it at every opening. “Jill, say I’m sorry to every woman on the stage at every opportunity, it will bring all your fans back to you”. In fact, there isn’t any way to bring Jill’s fans back to her but her PR people can’t tell her that, because then why would she pay them? Jill can come out with as many fake apologies as there are minutes in the day, I don’t believe a word of it. This reunion was Jill’s opportunity, in her mind, to fix all of her problems but clearly she didn’t make it happen.
Each of the housewives typically get their turn in the hot seat, the first part of the reunion focused a little bit on the Renewed Ramona, the Newly Vocal Alex and the war between Bethenny and Jill. I have a feeling we’re not finished with that discussion.
One of my favorite moments on the 1st part of the reunion was when Andy asked Bethenny the question about using an AK47 to kill a fly. In my mind the question was a dig at Kelly. Kelly just doesn’t get it, everything is so literal with Kelly. I think what the question author meant was that Kelly doesn’t have the brains to match up to Bethenny’s wit and intelligence. Kelly said, “’It’s true, I am a fly”. Oh Kelly, Kelly, Kelly! Just to add to the fun, while Lulu gave her take on the question, Kelly was rolling her eyes and giving Luann dirty looks. Seems like there is dissension in the ranks over on team Jill, I’ll be looking for more hints that the team is disbanding.
Thank you to Bravo for not making us wait an entire week for part two.
Tonight’s line up on Bravo includes another episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. One of the housewives leaves the show forever. (insert mystery music here) It’s pretty clear to me that Dina is leaving. One article included a theory that it is her husband Tommy who had pushed her to leave the show. Rumor has it that Tommy was very unhappy with the reality show world when he saw their wedding on “The Big Fat Ridiculously Expensive and Tacky Wedding”. Tommy apparently didn’t like the edit..hahaha. Seriously, reports say that he was furious that they included the fact that he cheated on Dina not once but several times before the wedding but while they were dating and engaged.
I think another big part of Dina’s departure has to do with her daughter not being on the show with her. It really leaves her very little to do in terms of filming. I’m speculating here but since the show is largely focused on the housewives with their children leaving Dina out in the cold. How many meetings can she call to discuss Danielle? How many scenes can we watch while she talks to her cats or consults a psychic? It was becoming creepy.
Finally Bravo will end the evening with an episode of Andy Cohen hosting his Watch What Happens Live with Dina Manzo (another hint that she’s history) and Ramona Singer, to dissect the reunion. Hopefully Ramona will be a few Pinot’s to the wind and will say what she thinks without holding back.
Hopefully you have all cleared your schedule’s for tonight’s lineup on Bravo….lets all Watch What Happens LOL
Until Next Time…..
