I Hate Jill Zarin Watch What Happens June 15, 2010

 I Hate Jill Zarin      Watch What Happens Live    June 15, 2010

This was the most disappointing Watch What Happens Live I’ve ever seen.  Possibly because I’m not a big fan of Dina’s and I despise the cat.  (sorry)  I know that it isn’t the cat’s fault what it looks like but I cannot help my reaction to it.  I have similar reactions to big hairy tarantula spiders.  When they brought the cat out, I knew the show was going to be a bomb!  The whole show seemed to be about Dina and way too much time was spent on the cat. 

I wanted to hear what Ramona had to say about the reunion but she barely spoke.  When we see Ramona on the show she seems like so much fun but she is really very serious and doesn’t have such a great sense of humor.  Possibly she didn’t have enough wine. 

Dina left the Real Housewives of New Jersey, no surprise there.  I didn’t buy for one second her explanation.  To blame Danielle in order to help make viewers hate Danielle even more than they already do is immature and asinine!   My theory is that Dina’s husband Tommy did not want Dina to do the show anymore, in fact, I would be surprised if he supported her decision to be on the show in the first place.  Rumor has it that Tommy was very unhappy with the revelation that came out during filming of the The Big Fat Ridiculously Expensive and Tacky Wedding nonsense! 

During the filming of the wedding of Dina and Tommy, it came out that Tommy cheated on Dina, not once but several times.  Rumor has it Tommy was infuriated by this.  Tommy refused to be seen on camera during RHONJ for that reason.  Additionally, Dina wasn’t allowed to show her daughter Lexi on camera due to Dina’s ex-husband refusing to agree to it.  Again, this is the rumor and I believe it over Dina’s weak explanation. 

Dina claims that she is leaving because of her being forced to film with Danielle Staub.  Andy Cohen pointed out that it was possible to film the show without having any connection with Danielle (obviously Caroline is doing it) but without any real explanation, Dina says that there are a lot of things behind the scenes that force her to have dealings with Danielle.  Andy skeptically says, “Really”?  Even Andy doesn’t believe Dina’s story.  Who would know better than Andy that it is possible? 

I know many of you like and admire Dina so I’m sorry for all of her fans that will miss her.  I didn’t think that she added much to the show.  In fact, I’m having a hard time finding a character who adds much to the show. 

I have had a really tough time getting into the show and not laughing at how desperate the producers seemed to be while editing this show together.  The guys shopping for lunch meat to make sandwiches during a poker game was included in the on-air cut, that doesn’t bode well for what we may see in future episodes.  Almost every scene feels like a “filler” scene.  If this is one of the better scenes that they chose to air, imagine what is on the cutting room floor.  Wow!

The Real Housewives of New Jersey needs a bridge between Danielle and the other ladies, who better to fill that role than Kim G.  Kim is friendly with Dina and is pushing her way into Jacqueline’s life but only wanting to discuss Danielle.  No shock here, the show is so transparent. 

Andy’s obsession with the 13-year old boy is getting a little disturbing!  Why is he allowing this kid all of this air time?  This kid met Andy in the street apparently a few weeks back and told Andy that he was a huge housewives fan.  He said that Bethenny was his favorite and so Andy arranged for this boy to call and speak to Bethenny last week.  Ok, that was kind of cute, but for this kid to call again to ask Ramona a question is getting out of hand. 

I don’t watch this show (WWHL) to hear a 13-year old boy. 

Ramona, the ever creative Ramona was asked to come up with a song for Turtle Time, here was the best she could do….

It’s time to party it’s time to drink it’s time to dance so let’s have fun. 

Catchy!  Let’s not have Ramona composing rap tunes anytime soon.  

Even the weekly poll is becoming embarrassing.  Clearly both Kelly and Danielle need help!  I used to look forward to Andy’s Mazel of the week, now he has a choice of three and has viewers vote.  I thought the whole idea was for Andy to give us his thoughts that was the reason I enjoyed them.  I want Andy to give us the Mazel of the Week and the Jack hole of the Week.  Period!

The Real Housewives of New Jersey was more of the same, nothing exciting, nothing shocking.  There is nothing to look forward to on this show.  The only thing coming up, which will probably be saved for the season finale, is Jacqueline’s daughter pulling Danielle’s hair and the police are called.  We already know what happens and we already know the consequences. 

Some of the cast and their families went to a farm, saw animals and made fun of pigs.  Including, wait for it, mentioning Danielle in a derogatory  manner.   Nice message for the children. 

The best part had to be Jacqueline throwing her daughter out of her house by literally grabbing her by the shirt and lifting her out of the chair.  My only wish is that she would have given her a boot in the ass on her way out. 

The lovely and classy Ashley called her mother a “bitch” on the way out.  Bravo would do well to cut out any scenes that contain Ashley. 

Danielle was a stripper in a past life, do we care?  Really?  I know I don’t.  It didn’t surprise me in the least, she can call it any type of dancing she likes but we all know what it was.  Again, I can’t even care!

Then we have the poker game.  How idiotic that this group of grown men want to try to intimidate this young kid, they want to initiate him?  What a cliché!  As a viewer, don’t you dare ever relate these people to the mafia, damnit! 

Juicy Joe joined the well catered poker game, Eat up Juicy Joe, you never know where your next meal will be coming from!   

This show is an embarrassment to New Jersey, to Bravo, to the viewers of Bravo and to the cast that appears on the show. 

My friend Toni has uncovered some information about Ashley and you can find her blog at

  1. Gina says:

    The Danielle comments coming out of everyone’s mouths are just getting tiring.
    At this point Teresa just sounds like a total bitch everytime she opens her mouth.
    Why does everyone keep thinking she is adorable.

    I don’t love love love her at all!!

    • Delia says:

      I can’t stand Teresa. I find nothing cute or funny about her at all, and if I have to hear about her and Juicy Joe’s sex life I am going to SCREAM!!!

    • tracylyn42 says:

      wow i dont like danielle either but come on enough is enough. the only thing teresa has to talk about is danielle. thats all any of them talk about constantly and it is so boring. everything about teresa is annoying.. her husband her children, her voice and her life. they need to get rid of the jersey girls.. i think snookie from jersey shore might be less annoying than teresa…

  2. LosingtheRunofMyself says:

    I agree that Ramona seemed surprisingly humorless. She didn’t even like Rashida Jones’ impersonation.

    • Squirrels says:

      Jet lag. She had just returned from Africa 2 days before taping. That’s my guess anyway.

  3. moneycanbuyyouass says:

    Can’t believe I was the first one here, but I have to agree with you on all points, The scene where the guys were buying food for the poker game was absolutely absurd. Who spends $534.85 on food for less than 10 people to play poker?! I hope this amount included booze and cigars!

    • moneycanbuyyouass says:

      Ok, by the time I typed things out and checked my spelling, I wasn’t first after all:(!

      • ImToula says:

        I love the picture of the doggy. Is he/she yours? What’s her/his name?

        • moneycanbuyyouass says:

          That is a picture of my dog, Radar. He is a mix of Bichon and Shih Tzu, a hybrid known as a Zuchon! He is the best little guy ever!

  4. Adgirl says:

    Anything compared to the VI trip and the Bethenny “ambushing” Jill at Ramona’s apartment episodes are letdowns.
    LOVED NY this season (well I was uncomfortable early in the season – everyone was unexpectedly angry and nasty)

    I just don’t like the NJ show. I enjoyed it last year but this season is a total snooze. They don’t DO anything and we don’t learn anything about anyone’s personality that we didn’t know before.

  5. TLM says:

    I actually liked the Dina-Ramona-cat show, and found it relaxing after all the insanity of the shows this season. I was glad for Dina that she’ll be done with the show, as I would be happy for anyone getting away from those psychos. I love Dina’s red streak in her hair, and am kind of surprised Andy said nothing about it, since he usually zeros in on things like that. And I did warm up to the cat, especially when the poor thing put her head down into the blanket. I think she was scared.

    Agree with Lynn 100% that the kid calling in is creepier than watching Danielle pole dance. Well, ok, maybe slightly less creepy, but still creepy!! I don’t know what the fascination is with him, and I really don’t want to hear from him again. There are plenty of other adult fans who would like to ask the cast members a question.

    All Andy wanted Ramona to do was to give a “Turtletime!” shout out, just like people used to ask Vicki to do a “Woo-hoo!” I don’t know why the Ramonacoaster thought she needed to write LYRICS to an imaginary song on the spot?!? Oh, well. We should give Ramona a break. She’s probably still recovering from the Reunion taping. I thought it was nice that she donated jewelry to be auctioned off for Dina’s charity.

    Thank you for the quick recap of NJ Lynn! I saw 10 minutes and changed the channel, since I couldn’t take it anymore. I am ALMOST sorry — only almost — that I didn’t see Ashley thrown out of her house, but I won’t be looking for the rerun. There must have been a clip somewhere of the farm trip, because I did see that unintentionally. Watching Joe & co. at a a farm was like watching Joe & co. at the Met. Completely out of their element. What is with the obnoxious focus on animals either defacating, or showing balls??? On the OC Everglades trip, the camera zoomed in on an animal’s balls. Why is it always the suppposedly adult women who are giggling and making comments about them? It’s just so obnoxious. So glad I was not subjected to the mini-Sopranos poker game.

    The NJ franchise is not only no longer entertaining, it’s starting to violate the 8th Amendment as cruel & unusual punishment to viewers.

  6. Delia says:

    I completely (well almost completely) agree with you Lynn. I DVR’d NJ and haven’t even watched it yet. Not really interested in seeing it. The last episode was just painful to get through. It seems so contrived and predictable and YES even scripted.

    I MISS MY NEW YORK GALS w/ the exception of Jill. Ugh, I can do without her for the rest of my life.

    Thanks for the blog.

  7. Noreen54321 says:

    RHONJ was a one season wonder. The whole pole dancing scene was beyond vulgar. Ashley is a sullen little brat. Why is bravo forcing her down our throats? The entire show is a train wreck.

    • ImToula says:

      This shoe has turned into a Jerry Springer episode, except that Jerry’s show is more eventful. Like Masculine Caroline says,”Trash”.

  8. Silly String says:

    I agree with you that WWHL was boring.

    I completely agree with your feelings about RHNJ and I can’t stand to watch that trashy, icky show, only watched last night because it was sandwiched between the reunion and WWHL.

    BUT, I disagree with you a bit about Dina.

    I nearly applauded her when she said “enough.” Who in their right mind would want be associated with this sleazy show? I am amazed that she stayed this long.

    I also think that the Danielle factor DOES bleed into her real life. Danielle trashes her all over town, and perhaps if Dina is no longer fodder for Danielle hate on screen, some of that will end. I also think that she is constantly reminded of Danielle’s presence because of Bravo shooting schedules, and we all know Danielle shows up to filming where Dina is present, invited or not.

    After watching last night, I can certainly understand why Dina wants to put as much distance between herself and her daughter from this trashy, nasty show as possible.

    Also, as far as her daughter is concerned? I do believe her. The show turned into something so low rent that she didn’t want her daughter subjected to it, and eventually didn’t want herself subjected to it either. If there were legal issues between her and her ex over the kid appearing, I again applaud her for NOT sharing that with the public, and essentially airing laundry about her father’s daughter. No matter how they feel about one another, for their girl’s sake, they should keep that out of the press. Besides, even IF true, that doesn’t prevent Dina from agreeing with him.

    I wouldn’t want to be anywhere near Danielle. Instead of throwing an ultimatum “it’s her or me!) down, she simply LEFT. Good for her.

  9. jalisa says:

    lynn, why are you so mean to these girls i mean really?! all you do is bash these women who you dont know. i mean plz get a HOBBY! its not funny. i love all the wives and your being out of control

    • If you don’t like it , Don’t be here!

    • MickeyMouth says:

      In the immortal words of Jen Gilbert: Everyone has an asshole.

    • RileyKitty says:

      If you love all the housewives why would you click on a blog that clearly states it is all about hating Jill Zarin?

      I beg to differ this is hilarious as is Jill’s spin on her behavior. Now kindly hit the red X at the top of the screen, you are not forced to be here & get the fuck out.

    • otaypanky says:

      another genius.

    • Kat says:

      Just stop reading and posting… you are becoming your own complaint.
      Why do people bother reading this blog if they don’t understand it or are offended by it? Start your own blog. Post to JillZarin.

      Why do people use different user names to snipe at other posters?
      Too cowardly to say it and own it under your other better known name?
      Silly troll games.
      Obvious.
      Respectfully me

      • CdnFillie says:

        Lynn I wish people had my back like this..you guys are great

        • CdnFillie says:

          btw I was wrong…I thought Caroline was going, not Dina…but I still think this show won’t be back next year

        • Kat says:

          We stick together as necessity calls us, and of course we look after Lynn.
          We want a friendly place that welcomes new posters and is a fun and relaxing escape from real life. 😉

          I surf the web and come across sites of interest and other blogs or forums that do not interest me at all. Birds of a feather I guess. I avoid Rush L. (others may like him – this is just me), I like RHONY and I landed here.
          I’ve been here a while and I hate seeing others mistreated. Most of the posters and lurkers here are like a cyber family. Good people.

          The sour trolls will move on in time.
          The ones that post about what terrible misguided souls we are to hate a tv character just don’t get it.

          I’m certain the internet has religious sites and may these troll find redirection there.
          My spiritual life is my own business. And if I have questions I am grown and capable, competent to take care of my own business and seek advice from someone other than an internet troll.
          Peace and Namaste friends.

        • Squirrels says:

          we got your back… no worries.

      • Stella says:

        Thank you, well said!

    • cusi77 says:

      You are Kelly Killoren! Got you!

    • Goosey says:

      I think you should head over to Bravotv and read the blogs there.

    • @jalisa
      “i love all the wives and your being out of control”

      Umm, that would be *you’re* as in “you are”. And, while we’re at it, the word “being” isn’t necessary in the sentence.

      😀

    • fairydusted says:

      Plenty of fan blogs out there. You should check em out!

  10. ImToula says:

    I tried to watch the NJ wives last night, but after half an hour I went to bed. The last few days for me had been busy and I was tired so I wasn’t going to spend precious sleep time watching these wives. Does it matter that Dina is leavening? No. I hope the rest of them leave too.
    Lynn, I agree with you about Dina’s cats. UGLY. I also think you’re right on the money about why Dina left the show. I saw Dina’s tacky wedding and her husband seems very much like a player. Maybe there is a story there that she doesn’t want to get out? Tim will tell. I think they should call it a season for those wives. They have nothing going on.

  11. Jennifer says:

    I still want to know whose money Joe was using to play poker? Isn’t he broke….

    I find the hypocriticalness of these women gross. They trashed Danielle fir spending but not a word about Teresa oweing plp 11 million…. Bullshit! Ashleyis trash and I am not surprised how she acts when Jackie ( who is a teen herself half the time) is her ‘rolemodel’

  12. OMG, this was the best post of all about RHONJ. I agree with everything you said… And if I have to watch Teresa buy one more thing knowing that her world was crumbling financially I think I just may vomit out of sheer disgust.

    I found Dina to be super boring and her cats absolutely horrible. I thoroughly enjoyed the look of terror mixed with disgust as Andy Cohen held “Grandma Wrinkles” then asked if she had a scab. That was good stuff.

    Being a avid fan of RHONY I was disappointed in how little Ramona spoke about the reunion. I am however looking forward to part 3 this Thursday and the premiere of my favorite girl Bethenny’s show, but I digress.

    All in all I find the RHONJ class-less and just a downright snore. Bravo should really rethink the cast and come back with all new girls next season. Blah.

    Brava for such a good post.

    A Big Fan,
    Mrs. Sergeant

  13. celeste says:

    I think the comment about the pigs testicles was obnoxious and childish on Jacqueline’s part. Yes, animals have testes, why does she have to be so crass and vile to remark on it?? Seriously, the RHONJ is stupid and pointless. Danielle is mentally disturbed and needs a therapist, and this whole story of her sex tape has made me sick about how it will affect her poor girls. Jacqueline is a passive-aggressive narcissist. The Bride Of Chucky (pun intended) Theresa looks like a jabberwocky and speaks like a Sicilian Putana. The way she’s brining up Gia and the other other kids is a disgrace.
    Ashley is a spoiled, entitled brat who needs a swift kick up her ass and the LAST thing she needs is attention froma tv show. Little snot is pathetic.
    Caroline, Dina and The Brownstone are nice but dull. Kim G – I don’t want to see her droopy ass in a pole dance, thank you.
    YAWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Lynn, remember the post from yesterdays blog from the person that said she might be in AZ’s class? Well she saying she now has a stalker to get info on her mom! Lol jeez

    • DarkSonnet says:

      Except that evidently Ally can’t figure out that Israel and India aren’t the same country.

      • Capiche says:

        Like someone needs to fly to India or Israel to figure out JZ is a bitch! We already know that! These reality tv starlets need to just get over themselves!

        • Silly String says:

          I wonder if one of Jill’s sneaky PR people spooked Ally, so Jill could get MORE sympathy that her daughter is being harassed?

    • Goosey says:

      Wow, did Bobby adopt Ally or is she just using “Zarin” as her last name to show solidarity with her mom?

    • Squirrels says:

      I responded –

      @AllyZarin No Ally. Not true at all. You can relax and everyone hopes you enjoy your time traveling. No ill will at all

  15. RileyKitty says:

    Jill is beyond pathetic. She needs to just let it go. How you can apologize (however insincere) over & over during the reunion & then turn around and undo all of it with tweets, blogs & press? She is not doing damage control, she is doing damage. Walk away Jill, just walk away.

  16. Katiecoo says:

    Back to the Reunion part deux.

    Anyone notice that when the chorus of BRAS on the *good* couch started chiming in about how Jill had asked them all not to film with Bethenny to “sabotage” her show (foreshadowing of Zarin saying she would not be “sabotaged” when what she meant was “ambushed” gotta love THAT Freudian slip!), that neither Luann OR Kelly piped up with a “well she never asked ME not to film with Bethenny!”.

    Um maybe because she unabashedly, not asked, but demanded that NONE of them film with Bethenny in order to sabotage her show? I think that’s pretty obvious, don’t you?

    • B.A. says:

      I loved when Kelly murmured (with sheer disdain while the “sabotage Bethenny’s show” back and forth was going on): “I don’t care. I’m not saying ANYTHING.” She clearly knew it to be fact and refused to pipe in for Jill’s sake. Totally disgusting.

  17. cusi77 says:

    Thank you Lynn! I could use a big laught with your comment about Joe!

    So funny…

    I have been very upset the entire afternoon after reading (I am that dumb?) Teresa’s Blog! Rude, crude, unintelligent… to say the least! Talking about Bethenny’s husband?

    I have to question my sanity. Last night I avoided watching NJHW… I had a great day and I went to waste my time with that twitt!

    But thank you for the laugh!

    Hello everybody!

  18. WindyCityWondering says:

    It is a fact that New Jersey is in the United States of America – but I am wondering if it is trapped in another dimension? None of these housewives resemble anyone I know or watch or want to watch! That said – I do want to congratulate Dina on leaving the show.

    Dina will likely be a crazy old cat lady…..a dozen cats roaming around a house filled with shrines, crystals and scented candles everywhere. She is looking for that happy place that most people find within their hearts………I hope she and Grandma Wrinkles get there someday! Peace out Dina.

  19. Adgirl says:

    Gawd, I just hate the gaudy Giudices. Their ridiculous spending of other people’s money is nauseating!
    I was sued by a grifter – and guess what? We just settled in mediation. She got zero. nada, nothing. Her own attorney turned on her and forced her to stop it. HA.
    I hope the Juicy’s have to face the music too!!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Glad to hear it!

      • anniieee says:

        Whooo whooo way to go Adgirl. I am so happy for you… Karma will get them now…that wheel will hit them in the ass!

      • Kat says:

        If it happens again I believe there is a law against it … I can’t think of the word, is it malicious prosecution?
        We need a system where the person who brings suit pays if they lose. It is untenable to be sued many times and win each time yet pay and pay and pay.

        I am happy you prevailed! Now may she stop!

    • Squirrels says:

      Yipppeeee for you Adgirl. The nightmare is OVER !

      • Adgirl says:

        Thanks – we are so relieved. It’s a little complicated to explain here- but someone with no assets can find an atty to work on contingency (for % of winnings) and grind the other party into submission. We’d have to spend $150K to get to court, win the case and then try to sue/prove/collect malicious prosectution.
        Very unfair.

  20. cusi77 says:

    @Katiecco__ If I were LuAnn I would be very cautious to never, ever! Being enemys with Jill!

    • Katiecoo says:

      I think IF they keep the Queen of Creep JZ on the show next season we will see Luann bond more with Sonja and Jill go nutzo over both of them. If they keep her on the show, it will be to capitalize on her villian status so she’ll have to go after someone (in addition to Alex of course). I think we will see a big change in her relationship with Luann…let it be Team Jill with only one player: Kelly! lol

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        They will have to keep the drag queen so Jill has someone to interact with – or they will end up with another Danielle.

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

    Why did they have to go to a farm to see pigs? They all are pigs, especially the asshole who called his daughter ugly, then mocked her when she started crying. They hold onto sexist attitudes (no handling tomatoes when you’re on your period) & teach their kids that Jews are bad because they have big ears & noses. None of these people have any redeeming characteristics. They’re just a bunch of stupid, half- or un-educated morons who think they’re hot stuff because they have money.

    Bravo, please cancel this show ASAP. If I want to watch trash, I go visit the local landfill.

  22. Lynn, did http://www.Absurdtosublime.com close down? It says the domain may be up for sale by the owner.

  23. Mbdea says:

    Initially, I have to admit that I was a little amused by Teresa. Now, I am utterly disgusted by her. I was especially nauseated by her creepy expression of sadistic glee when Danielle’s ex was explaining his “version” of the sex tape.

    She looked like a troll-witch anticipating the gossip and reveling (almost salivating) at the downfall of someone who, okay, is pathetic but that makes Teresa the more vile. I swear I expected her to begin rubbing her hands together in anticipation of that moron’s explanation. Yuck.

    • lillybee says:

      Strega would be a good nickname for Theresa.

    • emt2 says:

      co-sign! Teresa thinks she is the Head Bitch in Charge at Bravo now because of the table flipping incident. Sorry, but Bethenny already has that position!

      Teresa looks like a character from Planet of the Apes and I wish that she would have her hairline moved back.

      She is so mean spirited now and it’s not funny. It’s like, she doesn’t know what to do with herself if she isn’t calling Danielle a hoe-bag, c*nt, trash or whore.

      I’m not sure why she hates Danielle as much as she does. I think that when they were friends for five minutes last year, she gossiped about Dina and Caroline to Danielle and is afraid that Danielle might talk. There is no reason why Teresa should hate Danielle as much as she does.

  24. char212 says:

    I’m pretty much disgusted with RHONJ too. Danielle is a piece of sh*t who doesn’t deserve the beautiful daughter’s she has. I feel so sorry for those girls. The rest of the women are a snooze fest and so are the men. Kim G. is nothing but the old neighborhood busy body who is working both sides. What an embarrassment to her son! You can just see the gleen in her eyes when she’s trying to get some juicy gossip. I see no redeeming quality’s to this show at all.

  25. Kelly-Has-Big-Shoulders says:

    @Adgirl, Glad your ordeal is over.

  26. Katiecoo says:

    Wish Simon would blog this week.

  27. boston02127 says:

    Great Blog Lynn, Thx.
    I totally agree with everything you said. I did for one nano second like Dina thou. When they showed the dog she adopted, that poor tiny crippled dog in the little wheel chair.

  28. boston02127 says:

    Kelly the morons tweet:
    RT @AssoulinePub: Come by Bloomingdale’s 59th Lex on Thurs (6-8pm) to celebrate our new in-store boutique! Meet our esteemed author Kell …

    Think it’s time to send a quick letter of discust Bloomy’s!

  29. kokuanani says:

    I have never watched NJ Housewives and never intend to.

    I agree that the WWHL following Part Deux of the reunion was b-o-r-i-n-g. Also agree that the cat was “creepy.”

    There’s so much that could have been done with a WWHL. To waste the majority of it on a worthless show [RHONJ] and a stupid cat was ridiculous.

  30. boston02127 says:

    When the NJ freaks when to that farm they all seem so out of place like they have never done anything together ever. I also couldn’t believe Jacqueline telling her son to “come see Danielle” when they were looking at the pigs. Totally classless.
    She needs to stop eating EVERY TIME the camera is on her. She’s pretty discusting just like her daughter. I think Jacqueline reads all the blogs (that and tweets all day long) and thinks to herself, I’ll show them what a good mother I am! Too little too late Jacqueline.

    • Squirrels says:

      my favorite serious paragraph –

      “She talks about how she called, texted, sent flowers, and offered to come to Los Angeles, Jill talks a lot about what she was offering, and what she was thinking, but at the end of the day, she didn’t do anything. She said it’s because she was scared. Jill Zarin scared? Right.”

    One of JZ’s breathless self promoting (bullshit) monologues, word for word:

    “So…I’m happy for my friends I build them up and I think you (Bethenny) know that better than anyone that I”m the biggest cheerleader and I always have been for YOU, for Kelly and to show up at Luann and even Ramona ya know even though we’ve had our back and forth I always try and be supportive so I think I’m the last person to be accused of not being happy for my friends I’m pretty happy where I am Andy I have a very good life so I have nothing to be jealous of, to be honest, I don’t”.

    Insert Alex face “Who the fuck do you think is actually gonna buy this load of crap? seriously?”.

    Then Ramona proceeds to kick her lying ass. To which she calls Ramona “such a liar” then minutes later admits that Ramona just said was true.

    • Katiecoo says:

      Let’ do some Jill Cheerleader Chants!

      “Cancer Cancer it’s a drag! I cut you out of my life cuz I’m a hag! Yayyyyy me!”

      “Gimme an S! Gimme an A! Gimme a B! Gimme an O! Gimme a T! Gimme another A! Gimme a G! Gimme an E! What’s that spell? Bethenny’s Getting Married! Yayyyyyy Me! Gimme my own Show!” :::spin jump with a toe pick floor splat!:::

    • kokuanani says:

      I was disappointed that no one pointed out that Jill omitted Alex from her list of BFFs.

    • BamaBelle says:

      Katiecoo,

      I don’t understand why Jill is STILL trying to say she’s HAPPY for her friends? Like you said, she admitted that she told Ramona and Alex NOT to film with Bethenny. Plus-Jill admitted the fight wasn’t about Bobby’s cancer because she got called out on that, too. She had to admit that she didn’t tell any of the housewives, once again admitting she in fact DID tell them Bobby just had a procedure.

      So, Let’s review… If Jill Zarin was so HAPPY for Bethenny, then why, why, why, did she ask the others not to film with Bethenny? Why did she save the message to play for the show? Why did she divide the cast IF she was so HAPPY for Bethenny? Why did Jill carry through with her plans not to film with Bethenny? Because Jill was jealous just like Bethenny claimed… therefore… Jill just got caught in another LIE! Someone should have brought this out in The Reunion!

      In the first episode, Jill wouldn’t go to Ramona’s house for her Labor Day party, NOT because she wanted to stay with LuAnn because LuAnn wouldn’t go because of Mario. Jill didn’t want to film with Bethenny and LuAnn didn’t go because she was mad at Mario, LuAnn didn’t go because she was sticking to Jill’s plan of NOT filming with Bethenny. Remember when Kelly got the nasty e-mail from Jill? It was because Kelly broke the no-filming with Bethenny when she showed up to Bethenny’s drink thing.

      Yep… Isn’t that so supportive of your good friend?

  32. little rock says:

    I too was disappointed in ramona last night on wwhl. It’s like she can’t laugh at herself . She didn’t seem amused by the impersonation of her, and it reminded me of her reaction to andy at the reunion when he said her eyes are “very expressive”(instead of saying CRAZY EYES) she seemed a little defensive.
    Ok, one more complaint about ramona. The short outake they showed last night during a commercial break where ramona gets up and starts walking around just when kelly is saying that she’s sure bethenny didn’t PERSONALLY give info to the press about her/herkids. Andy has to stop and deal with ramona and i’m afraid they never get back to kelly’s account of what bethenny’s “people” planted. THANK’S ramona! I for one, really want to hear if kelly says something that could ONLY have come from her puppet master, jill.

    • CdnFillie says:

      I think we’re forgetting, Ramona just barely got back from Kenya.,,like wasn’t it the day before the reunion was taped? She didn’t seem to be herself last night…that being the feisty, insert foot in mouth, no thinking before I speak pinot grigio loving girl. I love that about her

      • little rock says:

        I love ramona in all her quirkiness. That’s why i said i was disappointed, because i really wanted her to take herself a little less seriously.
        Ramona getting up at the reunion WAS distracting, especially when i’ve been waiting for kelly to either produce proof (i sound like jill) that beth went to the press about her or at least say who planted that idea in her empty head. Yes, i know it was jill.

        • emt2 says:

          Isn’t it weird how subdued Ramona can be at times. It’s like she just took Xanax. lol

          I still love her because she never lies! Ever! She will either explain the trurth in an explicit fashion (Oh, yes you did Jill. You called me and said that we should sabotage B’s show. And then production called me… or Oh, yes Luann. You said that you didn’t want Alex and Simon at your party in the Hamptons and that you wouldn’t be caught dead with them!) or Ramona will say that I don’t want to talk about something (her age, who is the richest housewife, etc.). But she will never lie. Jill and Luann need to take notes!

          I did think it was rude that she got up while Kelly was talking but that just shows how little she thinks of Kelly. She doesn’t even pretend to care about listening to her and her eyes glaze over and she yawns! so hilarious!

          Kelly deserves it though because she was so rude to Ramona all last year, especially when Ramona tried to be nice to her and support her at her events. Remember when Kelly completely ignored Ramona at the horse show even though she had asked Ramona to come hang out with her?

          It’s karma.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I think we say Ramona without the drama – she was relaxed and she would have been responsive if Andy asked her any questions – he spent too much time on Dina!

  33. Katiecoo says:

    Watching this freakshow again and I”m convinced Jill has honed this “I’m uncomfortable so I leave the situation” down to a T. For one reason. It buys her time and gets her out of the corner she’s lied and manipulated her way in to. Then when she comes back she can say “I’m over it and want to move fuhwerd” and is never held accountable.

    I bet her family and husbands (past and present) have seen this behavior over and over and over again.

    • kokuanani says:

      I sure wish someone would yell, “don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out” and would then lock the door behind her.

      Andy’s, “no, no, come back” only rewards Jill’s narcissistic behavior.

      Any mother knows that when your 5 year old pitches a fit in the check-out line because you won’t buy him a candy bar, you don’t buy him one!! Doing so only sends the message “bad behavior = reward. Next time we’re at the grocery store, I’m gonna throw another fit.”

      • Katiecoo says:

        Right on! Exactly the dynamic she’s played for years so her temper tantrums get her a. attention b. avoidance c. no accountability for her own behavior. Let her LEAVE next time Andy…in fact I hope the show ends with her stomping off but I fear B will give her that hug. Ugh.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      plus she gets all cameras on herself!

    Jill is such a wannabe. I was just reading her tweeter acct. I read this one tweet that reads “Bill Clinton is here. Wow!” and there was a picture attached. I was expecting to see a picture of her and Clinton standing together. Nooooo. She is taking pictures of a jumbo screen!

    Bill Clinton is here. Wow! What a night. Jlo, marc anthony, regis, boomer, sanchez so many athletes! http://tweetphoto.com/27419111

    Ashley makes the Curtain girls almost look like decent children. I did say almost.

  37. Amber...Real Housewife says:

    I can understand Dina fans being disappointed that she’s left. Personally, I hope the others follow her lead, but those bitches are holding those contracts to their chests as they sleep. They need these 15 minutes at any cost.

    Dina’s departure wasn’t because of Danielle or wanting to spend time with Lexi. She left because she knew she was LOOKING LIKE THE CRAZY CAT LADY! How many scenes did she film where she was petting her cats and talking to them. With Lexi gone and her “husband” non-existant she was the LONELY SPINSTER instead of a vibrant happy wife. This chick was sad, depressed and totally alone. Psychics and assistants aren’t family and couldn’t fill the void.

    Her claim of not wanting her daughter involved with the show makes sense to HER FANS ONLY! Everyone else remembers vividly, how involved Lexi was in S1 story line and last supper. The girl was privy to the original gang bang of Danielle and now couldn’t be around for the fall out? Even Gia and Jac’s son has opinions of Danielle. Lexi doesn’t? Fuck off Dina. You were the original witch with the spoon that mixed that pot of crazy that is Danielle. Now that the cauldron has bubbled over you’re taking off running for the hills. Such a coward that starts shit and apologizes.

    That said, Dina is a mean girl who hides behind others and acts like the good girl. She has a charitable heart for children (PJT LADYBUG) and animals and such, but is a total bitch when it comes to women and competition. She has to make others look bad so she can look better and has others fight her battles.

    GOOD RIDDANCE to BAD RUBBISH!

    • emt2 says:

      OMIGOD! I love you! Dina did leave because she was coming across as the crazy cat lady. I find her to be so creepy (I know it’s a Kelly word but it is apt in this example). She’s a mean girl and a coward and in a bad marriage.

      I think that Dina has been criticized a lot about being a gold digger (why else would Dina force Caroline to force her husband to force Tommy to marry her even though he admitted to cheating on her and tells her in a condescending manner that if she can’t put up with him, there are plenty of other girls who could?)

      I think to a certain extent she knows that she is a gold digger but in order to silence her critics, she can now throw in their faces the Ladybug charity. I do think it’s great that she is helping kids with cancer, though.

      I don’t really understand the drama between Danielle and Dina. On the show, they say that they met right before filming, but have each said that they’ve known the other for years. Danielle certainly knows a lot about Dina’s past.

      I have a theory that Danielle is Dina’s worst nightmare because she could have easily turned into a Danielle if she didn’t have her family’s support, love and protection. Dina is just a slightly nicer, more beautiful and extremely luckier version of Danielle. That’s how Danielle sees Dina as well and that would explain her obsession with being Dina’s friend. I think that is also why Dina runs away from Danielle because it’s reminds her of what she could end up as if she were to ever divorce Tommy.

      Good luck to Dina but I’m not going to say that I will miss her. Like Lynn, I cannot really get behind any character on the show. They are all so tired!

      • Kat says:

        I didn’t watch, but I wish Dina well! Maybe she will have more time for Lexi, and what ever other interests she fancys.

        That franchise has turned twisted, perverted and sick.

        • emt2 says:

          Agreed. Bravo glorifies all of this mafia, felon, violence, guns, etc. nonsense. It’s really gross.

          I actually do think that Dina should have left because Danielle was being increasingly dangerous and unstable. Having those felons waiting for Dina at the bar would have been the last straw for me.

          • Kat says:

            Dina was the most approachable one or in other words Dina was the closest potential victim.
            Good for her for freeing herself from Danielle and the crappy drama Bravo has in store for the rest.
            Danielle seems to be a borderline personality. She’ll do anything to be in the center of the drama. She’ll leave collateral damage in her wake and will barely acknowledge it.

            • emt2 says:

              “She’ll leave collateral damage in her wake and will barely acknowledge it.”

              That is the best description of Danielle I have ever read. It’s exactly right!

    • BamaBelle says:

      Amber…RealHousewive,

      I agree with you 100 percent and couldn’t have said it better.

      I watched the video of her BIG FAT TACKY WEDDING and quite frankly, I don’t see how she and Tommy are really happy. He didn’t seem like a man who really wanted to be married. He was very rude to her. Dina herself admitted Tommy cheated on her twice before the wedding. Why would she marry him? I suspect for MONEY! I’m with you, Danielle was not the reason she left RHONJ!

  38. Olivia says:

    Let’s face it: Andy Cohen is a huge idiot! If he represents the other executives at Bravo who find “entertainment” coming out of the NJ mob then just imagine what their lunch hours look like. A bunch of frat boys on speed.

    From what little I saw of the clip where Ramona goes off on Jill, it doesn’t appear that she is doing the others any favors by mimicing Jill and getting in her face. Alex handled Jill’s outbursts with a degree of aplomb. Bethenny held her own and made her points. But watching Ramona prance all over the place, shaking her finger into the faces of her couch mates, makes her look as disturbed as Kelly.

    She may be reacting emotionally but she does come across rather childishly in stating her grievances. Not a good thing when you are playing with players who really know how to tackle the enemy. Perhaps if she had shown more restraint she would not be facing the ridicule I kind of feel is coming after Thursday nights reunion.

    • Goosey says:

      Ramona hasn’t renewed anything except her contract with Bravo. I loved it when Andy asked her about “injectibles” and she was sooo defensive. Like we should believe her skin care line is responsible for that smooth forehead.

    this is off topic, sorry

    has anyone seen Cupcake Wars? the winner tonight had waist length hairsprayed to death extensions and more makeup than jill, was about 20 years old. i was horrified, she never pulled her hair back, nothing….aren’t there health laws about that? Seaworld was this weeks theme, if i were them i’d have worried about a customer getting some of those hairs in their cupcakes. looked like kim hair, EEEWWW

    • MargoEve says:

      Uh, yeah…I’m watching it now on my DVR while I catch up on the latest posts. Thanks for spoiling the outcome. By the time I realized you were doing that, It was too late. Silly me for thinking no one would want to talk about a cupcake baking competition on this board.

      • moriasheehan says:

        wow, i am sorry, my mistake. should never have printed a spoiler, i am new, please forgive

  40. chismosa says:

    can anyone confirm for me what the poll results were last night on WWH live? Was it just Kelly and Danielle or did Kelly get 99% of votes, as she should have? My dvr cut off the end bc Andy was so busy up Dina’s ass the whole time it went longer than scheduled….

  41. chismosa says:

    thanks you guys- i honestly cannot believe that Danielle was that close to Kelly. It is so blatantly obvious that kelly is the one who needs actual therapy and Danielle is really just more into herself, has minor psych issues/ issues with her past, etc.
    That is an odd finish to me!

    Also a correction – to those who were talking about Dina’s previous Big Fat Fabulous Wedding show, that was on VH1, she was NOT on Platinum Weddings. The tacky as ass BROWNSTONE in PATERSON- (not a nice town) would NEVER be on platinum weddings! ha (though imo plat weddings has gotten increasingly tackier).

    I agree that Dina is off the show bc of problems with the husband.
    and i do not like that red streak in her hair. she is not 15.

    • TLM says:

      It was a tough call for me to decide between Kelly and Danielle for therapy. Whereas Kelly is more delusional, I feel Danielle has more potential to be dangerous, since she keeps amping things up all the time. Of course, though, Kelly’s the one who got arrested for beating up the ex-bf. I think it’s too close to call!!! Not a fair poll. 😉

      • Kat says:

        You can be very very quiet with Kelly and offer her candy.
        Danielle will engage you. No way to avoid her. She’ll talk about her series, her book, the sex tape, her new single and the Manzos. If you anger her DannyPro (Soprano) and his buddies will be lurking nearby.

        I’d pick all 6 feet of delusional BSC Kelly any day that Bethtnney is not in sight.

      • fairydusted says:

        I thought so too . IMO two different kinds of crazy.

  42. Katiecoo says:

    Will Bethenny or will she not allow Jill’s hug at the end of the Reunion?

    (I really really hope not but I fear she will and the show will end on that note w/ Jill thinking her reputation has been restored). Ugh!

    • little rock says:

      I think she reluctantly will. Just like she did at ramona’s renewal ceremony. You know, bethenny isn’t cruel, and since jill is all teary when she makes the request, i’m pretty sure she will.

    • Anitabee says:

      She will let Jill hug her only to realize that Jill plunged the knife deeper into her back.

      Luckily, Alex and Ramona are there to take it out like they did ALL season. Sonya leaves to go on a date, Luann goes home to find Corte and Jaxque “Playing tennis together”, and Jill still doesn’t see the tidal wave of bad press this reunion will bring until it carries her off the land of “What happened to that ____ ex reality star” where all 15 minute reality media whores go to and are never heard from again.

      The only one to make it off that Island is Omarosa. Well she how long it takes her to go back.

        “She will let Jill hug her only to realize that Jill plunged the knife deeper into her back.”

      Just looking at B’s face and after making a remark about not liking people to touch her or the double kiss – Jill is a bitch to even ask to invade her space!
      But I bet Bethenny will allow it and it will look cringeworthy at best.

    • fairydusted says:

      Sadly, I think she will. And really like Danielle, JZ will take it as Itlooksallgoodagaindoesn’tit.

  43. chismosa says:

    correction (sorry just catching up) – to what someone said about the celebrity net worth website & what that states about people, Julia Louis-Dreyfus from Seinfeld IS an heiress and is worth billions and billions of dollars. Always has been.

    i have to agree w the posters who have been stating that they think it is so unfair of Kelly to go on accusing BRAS about the bullying & BRAS not allowed to respond at all. I could totally understand Ramona & Bethenny ready to vomit there, i would have been THE SAME WAY. i get it.
    i hope we see more in the extras episode. maybe they’ll even air more than one ep.

    god, i pray, pray pray, Kelly is not the only one out next season god please please please!

    • Katiecoo says:

      I honestly think Bravo would have a whole lot more to answer to to the entire blogosphere/media by keeping Kelly on vs. Jill. Jill sure is the villian and brings the drama but it’s kind of common knowledge out there that Kelly has some kind of serious mental issues. I think Bravo would have way harder of a time justifying keeping Kelly on just in terms of general decency…on ANY of it’s reality shows. I mean if someone had a mental breakdown on Top Chef, called Tom Collichio a liar, that they were forced to fry a chicken or whatever when they weren’t…I think they would be just escorted off the show and definitely not invited back for any reason.

      • Maddiegirl says:

        I have been thinking the same thing.

        Bravo looks like it is exploiting Kelly. Although, it just crossed my mind that people with mental illness cannot be discriminated against (Americans with Disabilities Act). She could claim wrongful termination. I just wish her family would step in.

        Not sure that I will be watching next season if Kelly and Jill are on. I wish Bravo would make it Alex/Simon, Ramona and Sonja, with Bethenny making appearances.

      • Kat says:

        Maybe Kelly could work for Discovery’s Survival Man or Man versus Wild? I forget the series titles, but I am thinking of shows that have a “star” and no castmates. Just Kelly camping or roughing it alone. We know how she feels about wearing fur, so woe to the Grizzly that crosses her path. 8)

    • jennifer says:

      NEW YORK, June 1 (UPI) — U.S. actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus apparently was as surprised as anyone to find out she reportedly is a billionaire heiress.

      Forbes magazine said in a May 15 article that Dreyfus’ father, William Louis-Dreyfus, is worth $3.4 billion, which was good enough to place the star of “The New Adventures of Old Christine” fourth on its list of hottest billionaires.

      But the former “Seinfeld” star begs to differ.

      “It’s not true, actually,” she told “Access Hollywood” Friday. “Forbes made a mistake and I won’t be on the list anymore.

      “I wish I was a billionaire, but I’m really not.”

      No, she isn’t……she has denied it multiple times!

    • Thanks, I’ll go look. 🙂

    • Very sad. Lisa said it all:

      “When Jill asked me if she should join the show, I told her not to do it. I was familiar with the history of the first reality show, “The Louds,” and knew that being on camera had devastated that family. I could not think of one example where being on a reality show had improved anyone’s life. But I had not reckoned with Jill’s intense desire to be famous, a desire incidentally shared by the majority of young people, according to a widely published 2007 opinion survey. Jill was going to do the show anyway. What she really wanted was my support. And since we only have each other, she got it.”

      Very sad indeed.

    • Kat says:

      Thank you for the link.
      Gloria drilled in to the girls that all they have is each other.
      There is a 3rd sister, the oldest. And Lisa doesn’t spare a kind word for her.

      Glass houses.

      • Need a Hobby says:

        No, there’s not a 3rd sister. The article on Lisa’s website was a sloppy cut and paste from Lisa’s article in the Daily Beast and included a reader’s comment to the original article. You can see the commenter’s name name at the bottom of the article on Lisa’s site.

        • Kat says:

          Wow. I reread it and had a hard time seeing the cut and paste. If the author added that last paragraph accidently it should be removed.

          Thanks for the heads up!

  45. Bravo needs to go ahead and rename RHONJ “Danielle Does New Jersey” Even when Danielle isn’t in a scene, she’s all the Manzos talk about. How much longer can this show feed off Danielle’s material- there can’t be many more dirty secrets to come out- unless they start digging up bodies of people she might have murdered over the years.

    • tee tee says:

      They wouldn’t have that far to go to dug. The Manzo’s have a few bodies of their own duries. http://gawker.com/5270557/the-manzos-are-not-real-criminals-of-new-jersey

      Not to mention Teresa’s husband. You have to wonder how the “construction” can thrive in an economy like this.

      This is what annoys me about this cast. How can you have mob ties and have the nerve to look down at someone else because of their character? I call BS.
      I personally believe they are mobbed up and Danielle knows a little about it and they use her past to discredit her. Teresa is intimidated by that family so she kisses their butt. I used to like Jacqueline, but she has no parenting skills and no backbone. Caroline acts as if she is mobbed up and she controls the family. Dina’s just there. Danielle has issues, but I definitely think Kelly is nuttier than a fruitcake.

      The other thing that pissed me off was that Caroline’s so can aspire to be a strip club owner, but you look down on Danielle for a “prostitution whore”?
      What a beotch. They try to act better than Danielle but they are worse than she is. Garbage!!

  46. Katiecoo says:

    Ok if you’re up late as I am and rewatching the Reunion..just watch it in terms of watching Luann…focus on her. I’m telling you the ONE person she’s most focused on and apparently responding (in a positive way) to is…drumroll……BETHENNY. She’s making eye contact, laughing with her, nodding at her, smiling at her. And when you see her looking at Jill, MUCH of the time, it’s with a tight smile.

    I wonder if she feels USED by Jill, which she should. She took hits vicariously for her behavior with Jill which was the result of Jill’s misrepresentation to her about Bethenny..she was set up and I’m wondering if she’s figuring that out/ not appreciating that now.

    Just watch through that lens…pretty interesting.

    • Need a Hobby says:

      Jill & Kelly are sinking ships. Bethenny is not.

      • Ches says:

        I think Kelly is under the illusion her remarks make the others look stupid and her smart.

    • lillybee says:

      I agree Jill used and abused Lulu. When she truly realizes this, the fur will fly.

    • Jacqueline A says:

      Yes I agree and if you watch the previews from next week watch Luan when she says to Kelly “you say your shy but then you are in Playboy”. Look at Bethenny’s face of shock that Luan is sticking up with her.

      Who knows what happened to Luan. She should relax. She didnt have a story line but to be Jill’s sidekick. She is not sitting next to Jill and that says a lot right there. It bugs me how that side of the room makes everyone else accountable but think all of their misdeeds should be overlooked. The only reason Jill is apologizing is she really has no one left on her team. She realized during the Gotham party that she had to change as her plan was not working when everyone came over to Bethenny to congratulate her.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Looking at major news sites/papers for reviews of the reunion – major majority want Kelly gone (for all the obviously stated reasons) with LuAnn (no story line, no personality, no fans) following a close second. Cheers for Bethenny and Alex, love for the quirky Ramona, and about what we say here regarding Jill………unredeemable, better back off Alex and fake apologies don’t cut it! But it is a split with Jill getting the boot and watch her one more season. Bravo has the same message coming back to them from many sources!

    • fairydusted says:

      Hmmmm…..I Dvr’ed em so I will do just that. Thanks for the heads up!

  47. I don’t know if it’s been discussed yet but Bravo put up jill’s blog from her website. I started reading it again and it renewed my anger. I’m so tired of hearing her lies. Jill always tries to be the “bigger, better person”, but she really has no idea what that means and how to achieve that goal. Do you think she could ever learn basic civility and humility?

  48. Ches says:

    There is something that has been bothering me for a few weeks now.

    “This is not how I wanted our friendship to end”, was said 3 or 4 times, by Jill, in the past couple of months.
    If I had a friend and wanted to stay friends that person, I would say, “I didn’t want this frienship to end ” or ” I didn’t want to lose you as a friend”.
    Not complain about “how” it is ending. Everytime, other than in the reunion, this is how it was phrased.
    I also seem to remember her talking twice about Bobby’s opinion on her and B. The first time she said she talked to Bobby about it he told her she made a mistake and said she shouldn’t just cut B off but just let it die out slowly.
    So I tend to think she tried to get this friendship back again, so she could use Bethanny, her new show and baby, and then let the friendship fade out thinking that all the backlash would die down if it was done that way.

    Switching gears, on the RHONJ, was one of the Danielle’s friends the mother of the child they had the fundraiser for? They were at lunch together, when Danielle was talking about the meeting with Dina and they were together when over to the other friend’s house. She had on a fur vest the second time.

      She’s not the child’s mother. She did meet Danielle at the diner and brought the owner and father over to talk to Danielle. She’s the friend who paid for the table at The Brownstone. $350 for a table for 10. She wisely choose not to attend the function with Danille and Thugs R US.

    What is the story with Kim G? She looks like a total idiot. Maybe she hates Caroline because she thinks that she is thinner and prettier than Caroline so she should have been offered RHONJ. Maybe she is pissed that her son can only be on as a visitor of Chris Manzo’s. Does she really want to be on TV so badly that she would show her butt crack while attempting to climb the stripper pole. She looked like every tv/movie cliche of the “fat kid” in gym class.

    Danielle/Sonja – Here is a perfect example of sleazey vs sexy. Danielle is just gross and sorry to use a Theresa word but skeevy really does fit the bill. So does prostitution whore. Sonja on the other hand is cute, playful and not inappropriate. Nothing wrong with being sexy. Sonja never comes off like the town tramp. In spite of JZ trying to make her out to be.

  50. I’m not sure if this posted the first time…couldn’t find it after, so here we go again. This is a clip from Kathy Griffin’s My Life on the D List (Season 5) where Jillzilla appears out of nowhere (6:00 minute mark) while Kathy and Paris Hilton are shopping on Robertson Blvd. Jill b-lines over to Paris and completely kisses ass. Kathy expresses her disdain (for the show, or for real? Who knows?) Jillzilla just won’t zipit and Kathy is annoyed and commences to ripping on Jillzilla. It’s hilarious. CLASSIC Jillzilla. Being that Kathy Griffin is co-hosting WWHN with Andy on Thurs after part 3, this is a perfect time to revisit.

This is a YouTube page link to a clip from Kathy Griffin’s My Life on the D List (Season 5, ep4, part 3) where Jillzilla appears out of nowhere (6:00 minute mark) while Kathy and Paris Hilton are shopping on Robertson Blvd. (Obviously Bravo set this up. Under Jill’s name is states “Competing Bravolebrity”) Jill b-lines over to Paris and completely kisses ass. Kathy expresses her disdain (for the show, or for real? Who knows?) Jillzilla just won’t zipit and Kathy is annoyed and commences to ripping on Jillzilla. It’s hilarious. CLASSIC Jillzilla.

    Really, I’ve never thought Ramona was some super fun person to begin with. I think the only time she seems ‘fun’ is when she’s wasted on Pinot Grigio, but if you really look at all of Ramona’s scenes throughout the years- she’s usually spouting off something mean than doing anything fun. I know Jill gets all the slack, but I think Ramona is just as mean, she just gets an excuse for being kinda crazy and out there and Jill just seems like a mean girl. Besides “Turtle Time’, when was Ramona fun this season? She’s mostly inappropriate

    I love Dina and will miss her. I think if the only reason she left was because of her husband, then she would never have done the show to begin with. Their wedding show came out way before she agreed to ever do RH, so he could have stopped her back then from doing it.
    I think her leaving is a combination of things, but I do think the Cancer Baby Brownstone event is what set it over the top because she did an interview where she said her husband came home pissed b/c he didn’t know Bravo was filming that event and how they allowed Danielle to make a mockery of it. I think that was her final straw. Plus, she can’t film with her daughter and she no longer allowed Bravo to film her Ladybug events after they made last year’s all about her argument with Jacqueline. There was nothing left of her storyline.
    I don’t always believe Andy when he pretends like they don’t push the ladies’ to interact with others, because he hates when the ladies admit that stuff and he tries to have the audience believe it’s not true. I remember once Jill mentioned how she was curious where “The Book’ came from last year when Danielle walked into the restaurant with a tiny clutch and Andy completely ignored her.
    Also, they never admit that bravo funds the trips (like Ramona’s Virgin Islands getaway) and he will always change the subject if one of the wives brings it up. He’s not that slick.

    • Ches says:

      I think you’re right about Jill and Ramona both being mean, but IMHO, the big difference between Jill and Ramona is 95 % of the time Ramona is telling the truth. 95% of the time Jill is not.
      Plus if Ramona is wrong she has no problem admitting to it. Jill on the other hand has to be forced to admit she wrong.
      I think Ramona is tactless, but in her mind she is just stating the truth and not trying to be mean. I think Jill sets out to be mean.

  53. boston02127 says:

    Bravo is unreal. I just read Danielle’s Blog and about twenty comments. There is not one comment about her on the stripper pole. It’s ok for Bravo to show Danielle spread eagle on stage and on a stripper pole but it’s not okay for anybody to post
    “we don’t care to see that”.
    I don’t even know why I read her blog… UGH. She grosses me out. I feel so sorry for her daughters.

    I think I need an intervention! My dream last night was in the style of the HW shows, complete with confessionals. Then my ex married Teresa G from NJ….. LOL!

    • boston02127 says:

      @CuckooforCocoaPuffs~~I just laughed when I read your post. About a week ago I had a dream I was at some kind of event and Jill was there and she had on a purple dress with a big triangle cut out on the stomach of the dress and Jill’s stomach was sticking out of it. LOL, I need a life!

      • Kat says:

        That hole is where she hides Kelly’s brain.
        Maybe Kelly will do a youtube “Flying Purple People Eater”
        song now, looking for her lost purple triangular gray matter.

    • Adgirl says:

      Your ex married Teresa G? HAHA. Great dream. Just desserts for him!

      Oh wait. If you are expecting child support or alimony from him see if you can get it paid up front because your ex will be broke ass within a month of marrying TG.

  56. clevelandgirl says:

    Hey Lynn,
    I cannot tell you how frustrated I was that I stayed up until 11:00 Eastern time, which is late for me, to watch WWHL. I was really looking forward to it, but I think the reason Ramona hardly spoke was because Andy pretty much ignored her, except when he asked her asinine questions. What in the world was the Turtle Time BS. People wanted to know about ST. John, Jill Z, stuff that is relevant. I was even pissed that he asked about her workout routine – for the 100th time.
    I am not a fan of Andy, I think Bravo could do so much better.
    And what in Hell is up with that 13 year old calling in??? Is THAT their target audience??????
    Anyway…see you soon Fisher@305

  57. I’m walking away from RHONJ. Looking at twitchy felons and hearings details about Danielle’s sex tapes is NOT my idea of light entertainment. I’m sure this plot turn is a calculated move on Bravo’s part to see if this kind of storyline appeals to viewers and they’ll give it up when they see how it turns people off, but it’s too late for me. I’m out.

    • Pantry Viewer says:

      I’m out, too, Cripes. I watched the first season. After Theresa let a little fame go to her head and trashed B in blog after blog, just to be in on Jill’s plan, I was totally turned off. Add the bankruptcy, copying B’s cookbook, her incessant trashing of people, I just didn’t have any interest in watching it anymore. So I don’t this season and am glad of it. My IQ increased several points, I believe – LOL!

    omg… tried to catch up yesterday… made it halfway thru the yesterday’s blog…fell asleep… going to try again today…but packing and dang it..will miss tomorrow’s episode… heading for my HS reunion- only good thing is we are all the same age, with the exception of the new trophy wives! Miss you all! See you next week! Thanks Lynn –looking forward to recap …will have to read from my cell phone, lol.

    Does anyone know who won the poll on WWHL? My dvr cut off before the end.

  61. emt2 says:

    Kelly won.

  62. emt2 says:

    Or she lost her dignity. However you look at it… 🙂

  63. otaypanky says:

    I am going to run for cover right after I hit the “post comment” tab.

    I loved jill’s ensemble.

    The dress, the layering of the cuff and bracelets and the shoes. Just fabulous.

    This was definitely done by a stylist. jill’s taste runs towards the tacky, overdone dresses.

    The simple dress with the accessories doing the talking is the way to go. Very cosmopolitan.

    Now, why have I been silent for so long? I had to consider this. Why did I not like it on jill? The bottom line is, while I loved the styling attempt, I did not like the get up on jill. She is rather a little to long in the tooth for such a statement…in jill years. Does anyone not notice this woman with all her medical/surgical intervention still looks like a middle aged woman?..and by middle aged, I mean our new meaning of middle age being well into the fifties.

    I guess what I am really trying to say is that jill does not have:

    THE FACE OR THE BODY FOR THE LOOK!

    Know she loves spanks. But dear, they do sell body slimmers with implanted rounds over the butt cheeks to give one an ass…yes, even give one an ass on an ass like you jizm.

    In the meantime. Don’t know who styled Bethenny. The dress was a nightmare. B…fire that stylist…or B…get one.

    • emt2 says:

      I agree about Jill’s outfit. It was great but it would have looked better on a younger person with a more youthful body. I don’t understand why people feel like they can shove themselves in the Herve Leger bandaid dresses? You aren’t supposed to look like a sausage.

      I love Jill’s outfit and accessories but it was also inapproprioate for daytime. It was very nightclub, LA industry party, etc.

      I thought that Kelly’s look was inappropriate for the show, as well. Her messy hair and short dress and high heels just screamed LA industry party to me. Kelly looked really good at last year’s reunion.

      I actually liked B’s look. Robert Verdi styled her.

      Ramona looked great but her cleavage was a bit much. She likes to have her girls out and I think that she is too classy for that now.

      Alex’s face and hair were perfection but I thought her dress was a bit too much-too nude, tight, short, etc.

      Luann didn’t look glam at all. Was she even wearing makeup? She wore that same tired purple dress and earrings that we’ve seen her in all season. She should have made a bigger effort.

      Ramona and Alex tie for the best makeup and hair, though.

      • emt2 says:

        and Sonja looked perfect. Everything was appropriate, tasteful, sophisticated, flirty and sexy. I loved her pearl necklace and dress!

        • otaypanky says:

          Yes. And jizm’s look was absolute perfection!

          She did not have THE FACE FOR IT.

          She did not have the BODY FOR IT.

          Bethenny….love you girl..that was one ugly dress. Very Dynasty….you should know better.

          • emt2 says:

            lol. I love the Dyansty references this season.

            Bethenny said it first on the St. John’s trip and then Kelly started using it.

            It is such a great word to describe this season.

          • Squirrels says:

            I did enjoy her catwalk offstage though.

    • Free Ginger (formerly known as wolverinedg) says:

      She was going for the Minnie Pearl look, what with that gigantic price tag on her shoe & all.

  64. Eve says:

    I also agree too much time on the cat (On the show and WWHL).
    I’m wondering if Dina gets paid from her Ladybug Foundation……..I would love to see the budget.

    • otaypanky says:

      Until there is any investigation based on proof, I would not wish to see any charity knocked. There are not enough public funds to support causes through government any longer. This is a charity and I do believe if it’s a charity you wish to contribute to, their stats are available if you wish to research this charity. To suggest that something may be awry without direct knowledge can only hurt suffering individuals. Please be careful.

    • GreatExpectations says:

      If it is a 501(c)3 its finances are all open to the public. Anyone can request to see them.

      • GreatExpectations says:

        Also there are websites that rate charites. Google them. Having worked for a few I would recommend checking into how they spend their money. Although, even the books can be doctored to look good. I worked for one that reported 95% of their money went to the community when in reality it was more like 25% (if that). The rest went to the founder and her flunkies and the building she built and named for her grandchild. It was weird. Of course, none of the board had a clue, if they did, I wonder. No-profits can be a good place for an egotistical personality to rule supreme over their own little fiefdom. I’ve seen it time and again.

  65. KookADoodleDo says:

    “Don’t know who styled Bethenny. The dress was a nightmare. B…fire that stylist…or B…get one.”

    Otay, I think Beth stated in some article that her stylist for the reunion was Robert Verdi. I could be mistaken though…

    • KookADoodleDo says:

      “Frankel is breast-feeding on her sleigh bed. Bryn, aka Shark Bite, is sucking away contentedly, snuffling and murmuring. “Robert is here,” Plake announces. “Who’s Robert?” Frankel asks. “Verdi,” Plake clarifies, the celebrity stylist, reality TV mainstay and Frankel’s friend of two years. The quips are fast and furious: Verdi, surveying Frankel’s attire, says emphatically, “I did not dress her today.” He did dress her for the first time for tonight’s Housewives reunion. “I’m way too cheap to have a major stylist,” Frankel explains.”
      http://www.usatoday.com/life/people/2010-06-10-bethenny10_ST_N.htm

      • otaypanky says:

        Then, she should have some taste of her own.

      • TLM says:

        B is fortunate that she has a good eye and doesn’t need a stylist. There are a few things I haven’t liked, but for the most part, I can’t wait to see what she’s going to wear, and I think she always looks put together without looking like she’s trying too hard. Jill always looks overdone and like she’s trying too hard (and I say that not because of her rift with B — I would say it regardless). I don’t know if Jill has a stylist…I know she has hair & makeup people. But I just think her look always says “excess” and is just too frou-frou. I cannot stand the dress she wears on the intro with the leather inserts. Overdone and overkill. Garish. Both her taste & Bethenny’s are also reflected in their apartments. Bethenny’s taste is simple and clean, which is always flattering no matter what your age or your figure.

  66. KookADoodleDo says:

    “Real Housewife Jill Zarin insulted and made homophobic comments about fashion stylist Derek Warburton. One could easily lose track of all the insults spewed on an episode of The Real Housewives, but Jill Zarin caused quite a stir on the blogosphere when she poked fun at Alex McCord’s ‘day gay’ Derek Warburton. ”
    http://www.mashceleb.com/2010/03/20/real-housewife-jill-zarin-insults-stylist-derek-warburton

    Have I mentioned today that I HATE JILL ZARIN??

    • emt2 says:

      I remember the episode when she made that comment and I thought it was really rude. I wouldn’t go as far as call her homophobic but that comment was really obnoxious. I think she was just trying to make Alex and Simon look bad and hurt Derek in the process.

      I want to know what happened to Brad. Jill thought that he was getting too much attention last year so she decided not to feature him on the show. Then later, she said that they are still great friends and he would be in the last episode. I never saw him. Alex and Simon are also friends with Brad and see him socially.

      Um… Brad won’t spill the beans, though, because he is still indentured to Jill.

      • otaypanky says:

        Jill smacked Brad down. Now she want people to believe he supports her?….really j? He is in your employ. Why should anyone believe what brad says? You gave him the shaft last year. You used him for that awful taste of his then refused to give him the credit. How stupid….How jill.

        You moran..jill….you cannot sell that ridiculous condo of yours with that trailer park reno. Get it?

        Anyone who buys that Five Towns Nightmare has to do a gut renovation. You owe them for even cosidering the sale.

        One more thing…You wish list of where you want to live?

        You have no chance. The boards in these building cannnot and will not approve a pig like you, your husband. your daughter.

        Is that why you’re still living over the 59th st bridge?

  67. otaypanky says:

    jizm’s styist was outstanding. Just not on an UES old Chaser.

    What is the excuse for B’s dress. So dynasty. So Falcon Crest. She looked ridiculous.

    • Pantry Viewer says:

      I thought her dress was pretty and loved the shoes. She looks very pretty and soft, too.

      • Pantry Viewer says:

        I was speaking of B, by the way.

        • otaypanky says:

          Good for you…Speak amongst yourselves.

          Your taste sucks.

        • MAMAZ says:

          I also didn’t like B’s dress. It was just too much. And Jill’s hair was ridiculous.

          • emt2 says:

            Jill’s hair was a trashier version of Alex’s hair. I actually could see the tracks of weave in Jill’s hair.

            Jill’s hair looked good at Ramona’s ceremony. She should have gone with that look.

            • Squirrels says:

              At least she raised the correct one. I’d say right one, but if Kelly reads this she’ll assume I meant it literally.

          • Pantry Viewer says:

            I also felt Jill’s hair was ridiculous, Mamaz. I do enjoy when they flash back to old clips where she doesn’t have all that hair and compare to now and her ever-growing fake locks. Hee! Good times.

            When Andy told Jill, “nice hair” or whatever, I was hoping he was poking at her – I can dream.

          • emt2 says:

            “Why don’t you find another gov’t to feed off of…you and your entire governement subsidy collecting family?”

            I think that this is really uncalled for because Omarosa may be a bitch, but she is not collecting welfare as you are insinuating. Before she was on the Apprentice, she had a very successful career and happily married.

            Unfortunately, the fame monster got to her head and she became a huge bitch. But, she is not on welfare. Let’s not exaggerate.

            She is a very well educated woman with multiple degrees who has used her fame to become infamous, unfortunately.

          • fredthecattravels says:

            Loved Bethenny and LuAnn’s dresses.

            Jill looked like a sausage in casing with elf shoes on.

            Loved Kelly’s dress.

            Ramona, Sonja, and Alex, meh.

            FWIW, Bethenny didn’t pay $5000 for her dress like the other housewives. It was $300.

            • boston02127 says:

              Kelly’s dress had that strap on the side holding up her one big boob.

            • TLM says:

              Rating the dresses: I thought Jill’s was ok. It is definitely better to see her in basic black that some of the other crazy getups she was in this season, but she always goes overboard in some way. Hated the jewelry and the shoes. And I forgot her hair used to be much more restrained until I saw the Kathy Griffin clip someone posted. It actually used to look nice. Now, her hair screams 1985.

              I did not like Ramona’s Zac dress at all, and I always thought this designer was overrated. Sonja has a great body but looked horrible in that skin-tight dress in white; it made her look twice the size. I’m sure it wasn’t cheap, but it looked like a cheap dress designed for juniors that you’d find in a run-down mall. The strapless dress Sonja wore to Jill’s Kodak event was much more flattering on her.

              I liked Alex’s dress except that it needed an underwire sewn in, or pads or “chicken cutlets” to make it more flattering in the bust. Too often Alex goes braless and thinks it’s fine, or doesn’t have the right alterations made to her dresses. I don’t think it ever looks flattering to go braless, even if you are slim like she is and don’t have huge breasts. Her red dress at the end of Season 2 and purple dress in USVI both needed to have an internal bra sewn in, or at for her to use adhesive cups. Isn’t it odd that she worked for Victoria’s Secret, of all places, but seems to always have her breasts unsupported or mashed down? It’s like she declared war on the bra. It’s not expensive at all to do the adhesive thing:

              Bethenny and Luann’s dresses both fit very well, but I agreed with B that her dress was reminiscent of Falcon Crest, and good Lord, Luann in another one-shouldered dress?? Bethenny’s shoe color was giving me a headache.

              I did not like Kelly’s white dress or shoes at all.

            • TLM says:

              Bethenny has worn a few of Karen Millen’s dresses. I had never heard of this designer until Bethenny, and many of her dresses are $300 or less but in my opinion, look far more expensive. I especially like her simple sheath dresses. Proves you don’t have to spend thousands to look well-dressed, and conversely, you can spend a fortune and still look cheap (Jill, Teresa).

  68. Pantry Viewer says:

    I can’t for the life of me imagine why Bravo is only posting postive comments on Jill’s blog. Why? Someone please explain to me why they are not posting what surely are a zallion times more negative comments.

    And I see someone is off their meds this morning. I shall ignore them as I do Kelly.

    • Kat says:

      Maybe they are hoping to lure JZ back to the Bravo blog. Hoping to catch a fly with honey. 😉

      • Pantry Viewer says:

        You are so right – they are doing it for a reason. And if it’s to keep her so she will come back, how disgusting is that? Well, I ditched NJ, so I’ll just ditch NY if she comes back. How liberating!

        Enjoyed Kathy Griffin last night 😉 Her mom is cute and funny. Can’t wait to see her on WWH – woot!

        • Squirrels says:

          I DVR’d it and just watched it again with my bff over coffee. The Paris/Jill scene was hilarious. Kathy’s talking head bits had me rolling.

        That was for Pantry Viewer (Love the name, btw. Conjurs up images of hiding in the pantry and peeking out to see if the coast is clear ala Jill before Jen ripped the door open!)

  69. Olivia says:

    Something that made me laugh out loud regarding Danielle’s “excuse” to her “girlfriends” about the sex tape and Steve: the fact that she had no idea he was taping their boudoir encounters but merely “texting” during their sexual romps!!!

    Now I realize that people are so attached to their cellphones that they use them while driving, giving birth, and attending wakes. But “texting” during sex? How stupid does she think we are? What person in their right mind would consider that okay? Then we discover that not only did Steve not have hidden cameras installed in her bedroom but that she was the one e-mailing video of herself performing in a one man show!

    Danielle is roadkill, no other way to describe her. I have a particular loathing for that woman that surpasses my revulsion to Jill Zarin. Their 15 minutes is up and they have each gone beyond the sell by date.

    Just when you think that NJ has reached the bottom of the barrel with storylines, Danielle manages to reach down even further. What’s next, an episode of “family night” at the Staub mansion replete with popcorn and the sex tapes with the kids snuggled up on the couch cuddling with Mom?

    This woman needs to disappear before we all take an axe to our tv sets.

    • emt2 says:

      Just because Danielle sent him video didn’t give him the right to release it to the public and try to make a profit from it. That is vile behavior. She shouldn’t have been so trusting and he shouldn’t have been so vile.

      Steve is gross, anyway. I don’t like Danielle’s behavior but Steve is beyond creepy.

      • Olivia says:

        Danielle’s “trust” issues must also include Bravo since she was seen discussing her two year phone sex relationship with Jacqueline, her propositioning of Steve for sex in the restroom, her “friendship” with Danny Pro and the thugs who accompanied her to the Brownstone, her pole dancing at the Squeeze, and her just recently released sex tape with Hustler.

        Danielle just “trusts” too much.

        • Olivia says:

          Okay, I get it now. This is just Danielle’s attempt of working her way through college.

          Gotcha!

      • Ches says:

        I started thinking about that and maybe, legally, once she sent them unsolicited, they became his property. So he can do whatever wh wants with them. Just a theory. Doesn’t make him any less sleazy though.

  70. I Can't Stand The Toxicity says:

    Jill’s Facebook is back up. I have a feeling that she only shut it down temporarily to get rid of all of the negative comments.

    • Squirrels says:

      It’s a replay of her past behavior. I think everyone expected she just couldn’t resist the lime light.

  71. Pantry Viewer says:

    Hey Lynn – can you email me, please? Thanks! sowatcher333@yahoo.com

  72. Zee says:

    Lynn – fantabulous blog as always. In regards to NJ, I have a theory, albeit far fetched:
    During the reunion last season, Caroline broke down in tears while yelling at Danielle about “you know what you did..” and it was somehow in regards to Dina. We know that Tommy had cheated, could he have possibly strolled to Danielle’s for an afternoon BJ at some point KNOWING that he was involved with Dina?
    This would explain a lot: Tommy not wanting to appear on the show, Danielle’s obsession with Dina, Caroline’s Hate for Danielle and Dina’s over the top “coming to peace and harmony” shtick.
    Just a thought.

    • Olivia says:

      Something happened involving Dina and Danielle that brought out the sparks with Caroline. And Caroline’s reaction seemed very real while Dina sat back and looked defeated for some reason. Danielle stared down Caroline and acted “innocent” as though she had no idea of what Caroline was talking about.

      No one wants to discuss it but it is apparent that whatever occurred had a direct impact upon Dina. I can understand Dina’s reluctance to showcase Lexie on a show that has devoted its storyline to “chuckies”, sex, pole dancing, phone sex, propositions, felons, stalking, threats, assaults, name calling, and insanity. Whatever happened it was Dina who became the target of the mad woman as she was the only one who actually backed off of a lot of the criticism the others engaged in nonstop.

      Danielle is a very disturbed person and her threats may have become less idle and more acute as Dina seemed purposely singled out by Danielle for revenge.

      • anutha hata says:

        TMZ posted a photo the other day from Danielle’s sex-video, where they captured a photo of some guy’s reflection in a mirror.
        In the comments, (at TMZ) someone pointed-out that it looked-like TOMMY MANZO!
        When you look at it, Manzo’s hairline is very very unique, and I think that it really does look like him.
        I have a link to the TMZ photo/comments at njhousewives.blogspot.com a few posts down.
        On Danielle’s Bravo blog, she said something about why Dina was mad, but they deleted it. It was that story about the contract, and signing Lexi’s dad’s signature.
        I really liked Dina’s reason for quitting, I just wish she would have left Danielle out of it.
        Dina said that she thought the show would be cute & funny, and it isn’t.
        imstilltoni has some stuff that she captured from Ashley’s Formspring before she took it down, where Ashley claims that Danielle broke-up Danny the felon’s marriage, and had an affair with him while they were taping for Bravo last year.
        All that stuff about Danielle being a husband-stealer could be true,(or not), but what I don’t get is why doesn’t she just try to find her own man?

    Good Morning Lynn! Good morning everybody!

    Dear Lynn,

    You are SUPER-POPULAR! Last night Kelly K. Bensimon, herself, came to your site to make a comment.

    Please, see JALISA 9:23 p.m.

  74. mariareads says:

    OK, I wrote a fairly long post last night and it never showed up here. What’s up with that?

    otaypanky

    Omarosa recieved a Bachelor’s degree in Broadcast Journalism at Central State University and a Master’s in Comunnications from Howard University.

    She worked as a political consultant for then Vice-President Al Gore during the Clinton Administration.

    Trump didn’t find Omarosa collecting food stamps in the projects.

    Your comments come across as racist even if you aren’t racist yourself. You should be more careful about what facts you say about people you don’t like. You’ve given great comments to bloggers who may have said inaccurate facts–, ie. Dina’s charity being illegtimate, Kelly’s arrest for domestic violence (you actually said this to me so I know!), etc.

    Your comments about Omarosa being on welfare (when it’s obviously that she is not) is another one of those examples where it would be more prudent to know the facts instead of running off at the mouth.

    • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

      Please don’t respond to her. It only makes it worse. Seriously. Now the cussing and yelling and really nasty vitrol will start, and then the militant stance will come in to play. Just scroll, baby, scroll.

        Well it’s only been 3 days.

      • emt2 says:

        oh, is this what she does? some of her statements are just so obnoxious and borderline racist.

        • Kat says:

          I left a comment under one of yours upthread.
          You really have crossed the line Otay.
          Racist remarks are wrong, no matter how angry you are at someone on tv. To say the things you said… maybe reread your comments for what they are.
          I’m offended. Respectfully. Me.

    • Pantry Viewer says:

      emt2, I cannot stand Omarosa, but was disgusted by Otay’s posts in that regard this morning. Apparently, Otay has gone off the deep end before several times here. Her posts are particulary Kelly-ish this morning.

      I appreciate your well-thought-out post above, but if I may make a suggestion to ignore her from this point on. Hopefully, Lynn will take care of Otay or she will go away on her own because she does make the whole lot of us on this blog look like lunatics.

      She insulted me for no reason out of the blue this morning and is ranting nonsensically. I am going to not engage her or respond and will not post anything about her and let Lynn handle it. Just wanted to say I don’t think you can engage her in a discussion that will get any normal result.

      Otay has run off several terrific posters, one I particularly miss.

      • emt2 says:

        Thanks for your comment.

        It’s just sad that people have to be afraid of this woman because she turns into a maniacal character. It’s too bad because sometimes she does make great comments but these nonsensical and vitriolic rants discourage people from caring about anything she says. I hope Lynn understands how derisive that blogger is for this site.

        On my end, I have noted not to feed the troll.

        • Olivia says:

            Glad to hear it!

            Most of us come here to chat and offer observations, not to be ridiculed, insulted, or picked over because they do not necessarily share your point of view. Almost since its inception you have made trouble for many posters because you somehow got it into your head that you are “co hosting” this blog and manage to run off others who don’t feel the need to have their kneecaps broken for disagreeing.

            Not our fault that no one visits your blog where you can feel free to slam the commentators at will but not here.

            The same formula develops. You disappear and within days you are back to the same old, same old. Give it a rest.

          • kokuanani says:

            Olivia, just to let you know: I support you.

            I wish “certain people” hadn’t dragged this into an “us vs. them” fight, but here we are.

            As someone noted above, hopefully Lynn will intervene regarding folks who have no self-control.

    Why is Sherri a project bitch? You haven’t called Jill a jewish slur, have you? Maybe you have, I’m not sure but I would hope not. Your language is very interesting, to say the least.

    It made sense that Sherri brought up Omarosa because they both appeared on Apprentice shows–Omarosa on Donald’s and Bethenny on Martha’s. Those shows were aimed at business people whereas shows like Surivor were for the layman. Also, B and O have new shows coming out at the same time. It made sense.

  78. jennifer says:

    Sorry, I posted this on wrong blog before…for everyone talkign about Jill’s networth on celebritynetworth or whatever the site. Julia Loius Dreyfus is NOT a heiress…thus I do not trust that site worth poop! Just and FYI…….

    Julia Louis-Dreyfus denies ‘Forbes’ report that she’s a billionaire

    UPI News Service, 06/01/2007

    U.S. actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus apparently was as surprised as anyone to find out she reportedly is a billionaire heiress.

    Forbes magazine said in a May 15 article that Dreyfus’ father, William Louis-Dreyfus, is worth $3.4 billion, which was good enough to place the star of “The New Adventures of Old Christine” fourth on its list of hottest billionaires.

    But the former “Seinfeld” star begs to differ.

    “It’s not true, actually,” she told “Access Hollywood” Friday. “Forbes made a mistake and I won’t be on the list anymore.

    “I wish I was a billionaire, but I’m really not.”

    http://www.realitytvworld.com/news/julia-louis-dreyfus-denies-forbes-report-that-she-billionaire-1012363.php

    • emt2 says:

      Thank you! I did’t think the numbers were accurate at all. Especially the networth of the housewives. No way is Jill worth that much. And is Bethenny really worth 15 million today? Does she have 15 million in cash, assets, real estate? I don’t think this is true. Those figures are grossly exaggerated.

  79. HD says:

    Good blog. NJ just has went down hill and down hill fast. To have a show centered around one woman is nuts. Danielle creates drama and I find it semi amusing to watch. It is kinda funny the way she makes things that are so small such a big deal. I just cannot believe how she spins everything. The way she was describing the conversation with Dina to her group of friends and totally exaggerating was crazy. The show just needs new blood and for the love of all that is holy I have no clue why they would pick Kim G. She is a horrible replacement for Dina. There is nothing about this woman that I like.

    • MickeyMouth says:

      OK, I haven’t been watching RHONJ since the diner scene when Bravo used a sick child to put Danielle in the Brownstone for conflict. I stopped reading their blogs as well. I am only up to date from what I read here.

      My thoughts are this. Who has a blog on bravo? Not KimG but Ashley. I wonder if this is testing the waters for her as the replacement. She is out of her mother’s house, over 18, not afraid of conflict, living with her boyfriend and she will be a significant part of the story line at least on the last show. I wouldn’t be surprised to see her sitting on the couch at the end of this reunion. Or should I say hearing about it because I won’t be watching.

      • Squirrels says:

        If they keep Ashley as a cast member, all will be missing is the ambulances and sheriff’s department.

    I hope that the rest of you ladies (and gents) have a great day!

    The tone of the blog has taken a bad turn and it’s time to take a break from the (internalized, cough) racism of a particular blogger whose sole aim is to rile people up because she is bored and has nothing else to do.

    • Pantry Viewer says:

      I’m out, too, emt. Have a great day! I’m off to get some work accomplished!

    • emt2 says:

      I cannot resist commenting.

      You look really stupid and ignorant. Just read your comments and see how people have responded to you.

      None of us really like Omarosa but we aren’t lying and saying that she is currently on welfare and that she lives in the projects. I don’t like Sherri but I’m not going to call her a project bitch. Maybe at one point in time Omarosa did live in the projects but she certainly does not anymore. I don’t even know much about Sherri’s life but she doesn’t strike me as a “project bitch.” Perhaps, misinformed about some of her convictions, but certainly not a project bitch.

      You said that you are a Black Greek American and yet you use highly charged and racist language to describe two black women who appear on TV. Please explain to me how this is a good thing? That’s why I gave you the *blank stare.* Sherri is not a “project bitch.” She is a co-host on a very successful television show. I don’t even like the View or Sherri that much but I would NEVER call her a project bitch in order to get a reaction out of people because I happen to be bored.

      And I am Black woman and I find you to be ignorant and caustic and a troublemaker. You should find a better way to express yourself because you come across as a crazy lunatic when you get into these rants. You go around like a toddler and say “See if I care! Leave the blog! You’re stupid also.” It’s worse than my 2 year old niece.

      I’ve already said that you have said many helpful things (like pointing out incorrect facts and encouraging people to gather evidence) and I like some of your comments but your racist language this morning and more importantly your reaction to my disagreement about your language choice, is vile.

      When was the last time someone called a white woman a project bitch? Let’s be real. You said that because she is black. Sandra Lee, the personality from the Food Network, actually admitted that she grew up on welfare. Would you call her a project bitch, even though you might not like her? No, so stop the bullshit about me not knowing that there are more whites on welfare or whatever your shoddy logic was at the time.

      If you are that bored, you should find something else to do with your time and if you are as angry as you across based on your comments, you should take up a physical activity like walking or jogging.

      I’m sorry but your behavior is beyond obnoxious and people will stop coming to this wonderful community that Lynn helped to set up because of YOUR obnoxious behavior and attempts at bullying. You have a right to state your opinion but when you start in with the racist comments and trying to bully people who disagree with your comments and wrecking havoc on the blog, it creates a real problem on the blog and I hope that Lynn deals with you accordingly.

      You’ve done this, apparently, many times and everyone is sick of it. As Bethenny would say “Stop the bullshit! Everyone is seeing it and it’s you!”

    On Perez today-

    Jill Zarin of The Real Housewives of New York City would return to the show, but she wants to see some changes made!

    “I think a lot of things have to be discussed. If it’s just about fighting and angry mean girls and that’s all it is about, that’s not who I am. But Bravo hasn’t asked me back yet, so I don’t know what their plans are. So who knows?”

    But you ARE a mean girl, Jill!

    As for a sex tape release, she’s keeping that shiz on lockdown! She says:

    “Do I have my own personal library? No, but are there things possible in a vault that we own that are personal? Maybe. A lot of people have hot videos of themselves that they don’t want published. People who say they don’t or wouldn’t, I don’t know if I believe them.”

    Ew!

    • Need a Hobby says:

      Who saved a voice mail for months so she could talk about it and play it for the cameras when the show started filming? Did Bravo “force” Jill to do that? Who brought her fight with B to the cameras and trashed her with lies for the cameras? None of that would have been on the show if Jill hadn’t done it in front of the cameras. Who lobbied others to not film with B to damage B and her new show?

      Jill was fine with it as long as she thought that she was going to be the “winner” of the season. As long as she was the “star.” Now she doesn’t like the result so the “Queen of Accountability” says it’s not her, it’s not her fault.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Jill is spouting alot of fuckery – her stock is in the toilet with viewers – where does she get off thinking she can dictate any changes to the show?????

    Otay, respectfully I say this. As I’m reading your post it screams racism to me.
    I know you get angry, but instead of focusing your energy, you seem to have a fireman’s water hose that sprays every which way.
    Once you have offended good people the damage is often done.

    Maybe you have a lot of money and look at those of us without a large bank book as trash?
    The stereotype with the chicken wings and equating Sherri with a project ho is wrong. Project ho is another stereotype.

    I knew I wasn’t crazy I remembered this story in the news. Omarosa a minister? Yep that really lasted huh? I mean at least B didn’t try to use God for publicity. Just sayin’. (sorry of this was already posted didn’t see it :))

    • just sayin' says:

      There was some show about this, showed her going through getting into a seminary (sp) and talking about how much she had “changed”. Uh okay, knew it was bs then but thought to myself time would tell and it did she is still a nasty old ho ;).

    • dee says:

      @ Just saying’: All these reality t.v participants are nuts. I’m almost sure of it. But I have two issues with this Omarosa topic and this is directed to Otay:
      1 To call a black woman a welfare ho(your word Otay on my post above) and/or project bitch really is not okay. And if you think it is, I fucking dare you to go into some urban area and say that to a black woman. Tell them that you are just saying it the way it is. They’ll appreciate that.
      2. Now before you claim I love Omarosa, I don’t. But I’ll give credit where it’s due. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omarosa_Manigault-Stallworth (I’m talking about her education, her resume and not her as a person). If you’re on an anti-Omarosa rant because of what she has said about Beth, why are you jumping in? I’m sure Beth can handle Omarosa by her herself without your insane, racist comments.
      Waiting to be told to STFU in 4,3,2,1…..

      • just sayin' says:

        Actually my ho comment was more a reference to RHNY but I wasn’t sure how to spell hobag (hoebag, ho-bag) I wasn’t even thinking of black women on welfare or “black women” at all. I wasn’t trying to defend B, I was more making a statement on Omarosa character. I think it is funny that someone who wanted to be a minister and “help” people less than a year ago is now revert back to her narcissistic, publicity gathering instincts and suddenly reverted back to old Omarosa, when she had indicated she had grown past all of those tendencies. Maybe I should have use fame whore instead of ho (another RHNY reference :)). I won’t be tell anyone to stfu, not my stlye, sorry if I said something you found offensive.

        • just sayin' says:

          Oh and maybe I should have clarified…. I thought of my comment after reading Lynn’s blog and visiting one of the link she posted which had talked about Omarosa. I had not studied the comments before I replied.

          • dee says:

            @ Just saying – I was not going after you. I specifically said my 2 points were directed at Otay.

            • just sayin' says:

              I know, I just wanted to make sure everyone else understood. I haven’t read all the comments but here at the end can tell there is some issue. Just did not want anyone to misunderstand what I wrote. I have don’t want anyone to think I am making any derogatory remarks about “African American woman” in general and after rereading it (due to your post) felt that need to be clarified. I still don’t like Omarosa :).

    You are looking for trouble which seems to be your primary cause since you have posted on this site. You seem to be under the false impression that this is somehow a college course with yourself as the gatekeeper of keeping the “conversation” from going off topic.

    This blog, unless I am sadly mistaken, was created for commentary about a show and the castmembers. Nowhere did I see where it gives license to one poster in particular taking the lead to slam others no matter where the topic led.

    You seem to have a huge impression of your worth when you deem that you have the right to move the comments to wherever it suits you. Calling names and stalking a poster as the thread moves alone is insane. Perhaps you need a reminder that this blog is nothing more than a placeholder for those of us who comment about a stupid tv show and not a course in “blog writing” seen from your point of view.

    Calling other bloggers stupid and refusing to examine your own behavior when it comes to people merely posting their own points of view is crazy. No one else who has come to this blog has been as openly hostile, obnoxious, or just plain rude.

    Perhaps the wisest course is to let you carry on by yourself while the rest of us take a much needed break. I not sure that this is what Lynn had in mind.

    I appreciate your response but I disagree with your assessment of your behavior. There is a difference between trying to encourage conversation and trying to stir up controversy by saying outlandish and racist things and insulting people left and right.

    And you constantly insult bloggers and call people names and curse people out who disagree with you. This morning, you told me to Shut the Fuck Up because I said that your comment about Omarosa being on welfare was inaccurate. I don’t come on this blog to be told to STFU and others don’t come here to be called Bitches and losers, etc.

    And when people disagree with you and say they need a break from the hostile environment that you’ve created, you say childishly : “Go, then…. I don’t care.”

    I mean, reread your comments on this page. It’s clear that you are antagonizing people for no reason and creating a hostile environment because you are bored. You even admitted it!

    And I don’t condone explicitly racist language whether it is in regards to Black women or Jewish women.

    You don’t have to scream to be heard and you don’t have to be nasty to be acknowledged.

    That’s what my father told me when I was growing up and that’s what he continues to tell me to this day. I think it is great advice!

    • Buffywood says:

      Wow, this is how most of the girls must have flet on thier vacation…. Several rational people trying to deal with one totally irrational one. It’s frustrating isn’t it? Maybe this one will go just go away as well. Your father gave you great advice! My dad used to say something similar… “just because you are the loudest doesn’t mean you won the argument”. Have a good day EMT.

      • emt2 says:

        Thanks! It totally feels like Scary Island, part 2! The only thing is that I don’t think she is crazy like Kelly. I don’t really even think she means half of the things she says. She is just bored. Plain and simple and is looking for a fight. Whatever, it’s so boring.

        Anyway, I’m going to class now. Hope everyone has a better day!

  96. Viki55 says:

    I think this must be what it is like to suck the air out of a room.

    • Katiecoo says:

      Stop.

    • shantygal says:

      There was plenty of oxygen, no need for your help. Plus we have and emt in our midst. She can supply any oxygen that may be needed.

      I think what you did supply was a lot of HOT AIR.

  97. Marie Laveau says:

    Amen!

    I’ve been coming to this board for about 2 1/2 months now. I usually just lurk, although I occasionally post. I have noticed everything you’ve just mentioned for a while now. I usually just sit and stare at my computer screen when I see the strange behavior like, “WTF?!”.

    But today’s comments compelled me to post.

    I am not a fan of Omarosa.

    And I’m indifferent to Sherrie Shepherd (can take her or leave her).

    But the comments about them this morning were indeed racist, and I recognized it right off the bat. It is uncalled for, nasty, and ignorant. And even Stevie Wonder can “see” it. It’s got my blood boiling too.

    Thanks for speaking up!

  98. emt2 says:

    It’s also a fact that Omarosa is not currently on welfare and it’s also a fact that neither she nor Sherri are “project bitches.”

    You must love all this attention. Well, you and Omarosa certainly have at least one thing in common.

    • Viki55 says:

      Must not feed the…..never mind…too late

    • Kat says:

      emt2 I think I love you. But this is not worth your time and the subject is beneath you. Ignore Otay. She lives for fire and collects moths.
      Nothing will change with words.
      I hope Lynne reads all the posts and makes a decision.

    • dee says:

      Could it be that in Otay’s mangled english she was actually saying that Sherri is the only one that can pronounce Omarosa’s (aka project bitch) “high falutin'” last names?

  99. yesIwatchthiscrap says:

    so……how ’bout them Tigers?

    • Viki55 says:

      Ya, how about them! Who are they?;

    • Buffywood says:

      Lol… We used to say “how ’bout them Mets?”… How are things in Detroit now a days? I understand ecomic conditions up there are not good.

      • yesIwatchthiscrap says:

        Oh the economy is still horrible here, been that way since I started working though. The Big 3 shutdown just made it all the more worse.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Alright – HOW BOUT THOSE BLACKHAWKS! We got the cup and the sun is shining and Jill is still the Bitch! Can we please let go of the personal attacks and defenses – it just needs to STOP!

  100. Katiecoo says:

    Honestly none of that (above) was fun.

    Let’s go back to talking about this SHOW, ok?

  101. shantygal says:

    I don’t get you man. OK, you hate Omarosa. Who gives a fuck? If you feel that strongly about it, write your own damn blog about OMAROSA.

    Because YOU want to start a discussion that others do not wish to participate in is not a valid reason for attacks. Really, start your own blog and people that want to discuss YOUR views will follow you there.

  102. Katiecoo says:

    Ok I rewatched Reunion #2 last night about 3 times (seriously I had it on in the backround and kept hitting “start over” cuz I was wanting some “white noise” lol).

    I posted above about Luann and something that hit me on around viewing #2 was that Luann appears mostly connected to………..drumroll…………..Bethenny! During the whole show off and on. She tries to engage her, joke with her, laughs at her jokes, is smiling at her and call me Pollyanna but to me it seems genuine.

    I think the lightbulb came on for her during that taping that Jill really did set her up with all the “cancer card” talk and sort of dragged her under the same bus she was rolling under all season…and she just might be slightly pissed!

    Take a look and please tell me if you agree!

    • Viki55 says:

      I am looking forward to seeing it again and watching for that. Think they will show 1 & 2 before 3 on Thursday night?

    • kats2 says:

      Yes there was an odd thing going on, and I think they had eye contact a few times. Luann is many things but she is not stupid, she must have seen the hit she took by siding with Jill all season. I think she will still be a Jill supporter but will play it differently if she’s back. She is a single mom who needs some cash and her JZ link didn’t help to sell that dam song.

      Never forget – It’s all about the money and the fame

      • dee says:

        Oh Luann is a smart cookie. Look how fast she sidled up next to Sonja when she got on the show. Sonja is top of the food chain with that group of ladies. Sonja has more to offer Luann than Jill’s “toxicity” and Hamptons home. For chrissakes she has “Aspen Clothes” and “St. Tropez Shoes”. I just have NJ clothes and NJ shoes.

    • Squirrels says:

      Pollyanna? lol … too cute

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Agree with your take on the CountASS – she is reevaluating what it means to be on the losing team. She is going for manners, clarification and being sweet. It will be interesting to see her responses when she gets her Q&A sesson. Lynn thinks it will be boring, me I am just waiting for her lack of manners, gossiping, listening in on private phone calls gets dished back her way!

  103. dee says:

    I think I have figured out what’s going on; Otay, who in her imagination is co-owner of this blog, saw that these posts were becoming too mundane. She, because she is the imaginary co-owner of this blog, felt to need to ramp it up and decided to inject race into the conversation. She thought, “that’ll get them going”. Well, it got many of us going away from this blog. Others decided to call her out on it. But because this is for the sake of her blog (but it’s not, remember), she’ll take the hits, denying what she said is racist. She’ll also take the hits because she got people to acknowledge her. “See I can get them to do what I want”. And for that especially she should be ignored. So I implore you other posters to do so. I know it’s hard, but please try.
    Otay, you should try going on a reality show. You seem to have the attitude and mental stability to be in one.

    • Katiecoo says:

      I prefer the “drama” to come from Our Ladies of Housewife themselves…God knows they can bring it. 😉

    • shantygal says:

      I was just thinking that same thing. She “wins” if we play her game. Very similar to Kelly. People just quit engaging because there is no end to it, so they think they have won.

    • Viki55 says:

      Yes, please ignore it. We all see it.

    • dee says:

      Owwwww, you’ve hurt in a place that has never felt such pain before. Still waiting for you to answer my question from above. I’ll post it again for you at the bottom when I’m done with this.

  104. yesIwatchthiscrap says:

    I’m think I may just be “over” this season. I just don’t believe anything will be “resolved”….but I am interested of how it will play out next season. If they do ask everyone back, will it just be more of the same. I honestly wouldn’t watch. I was just ill from watching Kelly’s breakdown. I am upset that they allow her to use the “bullying” BS.
    Although I may just watch next year if Sonja sticks around. She could be really fun to watch if she was there the whole season.

    • Viki55 says:

      I think Alex, Ramona & Sonja would be very enjoyable to watch.

    • Pantry Viewer says:

      See, that’s why I am feeling a tad sad. I know I will have to write off next season and not watch. I will not watch with Jill or Kelly on the show. LOVE Sonja, Alex and Ramona and it would be fun to have Miss B on now and then, maybe introduce one new wife.

      But I have a sinking feeling they will bring back the same cast and that will be a shame, because I will not watch. We know now they are fake as the day is long, posturing and making up vile shit. It’s not even reality anymore – just the troublemakers’ jocking for top dog. No.thank.you.

    • GreatExpectations says:

      I agree. I can’t bear to watch Jill or Kelly anymore. In the same way I can’t watch RHNJ (never watched OC/Atlanta). I’d watch a show with Alex and her family taking on NYC and being odd and quirky. That would be good. Maybe, based on their book? I also love Sonja. She’d really take us into the upper crust world of Manhattan. With Ramona and Luann as supporting cast.

      I’m watching happy Bethenny as a way of detoxing from this season.

    • kats2 says:

      Well that is the vicious cycle, these reunions don’t accomplish much but we watch and they set us up for the next season.

      If I could pick just one to stick a fork in, for me it would be Kelly. There is just nothing there and she should be ignored so why bother having her back.

    Humpty Dumpty – GO TO SLEEP!!!! GO TO SLEEP!!!!

    😉 Could resist.

  106. Olivia says:

    This blog, because of one deranged and seriously troubled poster, has turned into something else entirely.

    This one poster has turned this into a war zone of scurrilous comments and it is disheartening to watch. Engaging in this back and forth with someone who has tried to establish themselves as the end all, be all of what is discussed here serves no one but herself. She has done this repeatedly since its creation by attacking, leaving, waiting to be begged to return, than appearing sane for a few days before the cycle begins again. In fact she has made more “farewell” appearances than Cher!

    As long as Lynn permits this abuse to take place under her named blog I am no longer interested in remaining. Not interested in being ridiculed or being told to STFU, or having to watch others endure the same treatment when the moon is full with this looney tune. She is serving up just the right blend of hatefulness that other blogs who attempt to cast aspersions this way are eating up with both hands.

    Not sure what or why she behaves this way but I am not about waiting around for more abusive language being administered by her towards myself or others who just happen to want to discuss a dumb reality show. Unfortunately she sets the incorrect tone and refuses to desist. It has been going on since this blog was formed and does not seem to be addressed.

    • Viki55 says:

      Please don’t go. Can’t you just ignore it?

    • kokuanani says:

      Have you written to Lynn? LynnAHudson@aol.com

      I have. I encourage others to do so.

      You are right, Olivia. This is a hijacking of the blog. The “good folks” shouldn’t be driven out by the actions of, yes, a BULLY.

      I deal with it by scrolling right past everything appearing under her name. I hope you’re able to do that too, and remain here. Really, if you go, the BULLY wins. Don’t let it happen.

      • LynnNChicago says:

        Thanks for the emails….all has been taken care of. I’m going to repeat this blog on a new one to refresh comment space. Offending posts have been deleted and poster has been banned.

        Thanks everyone for your input. (I would have been here sooner but I was out, just got in)
        Lynn

      • Olivia says:

        kokuanani: Believe me, it is not a question of winning or losing since we are talking about a blog whose sole purpose was to invite like minded people who shared the same visceral response to Jill Zarin and were provided an outlet to vent about her behavior along with the cast as a whole.

        But there are also real people here. People who are suffering from one thing or another in their private lives and who just wish to take a few minutes each day to have a laugh or leave a comment because it makes them feel better. Some of these regulars have physical ailments, money problems, relationship troubles, or things that are making them sad.

        But for them come onto a board that has a blogger so intent on putting them down or depriving them of the opportunity to express whatever they have to say, then twisting it into her own worldview by insults, has to hurt.

        There are some of us here who are stronger than others when we retaliate but there are those who look forward to the silliness of this blog who must come away with a feeling of “why bother” when another blogger is lurking in wait and hoping to insert a little venom into the process and call that “moving the blog along”. Who the hell made her judge and jury?

        One can overlook the first time. But when it is repeated time after time, and this blogger welcomes the loss of other posters, then it is time to call a halt.

        Some of Lynn’s posters have made the comment that coming here gives them a laugh or a much needed time out for whatever is going on in their lives. But to be at the mercy of one blogger who refuses to quit has turned this blog into something else.

        I can’t speak for everybody, but she has managed to taint this place and turn it into the “cat pee” smell that Sonja refers to.

        She will “lurk” for a few days than return but just as quickly the claws will come out and we are all back to square one. The fun has gone AWOL.

    • SusanS88 says:

      Olivia, no no no!!!! Do not go! Come on you are not that weak a person and I know this from reading your posts!

      Cmon peeps! It’s one person’s opinion for Gawd’s sake. If you don’t agree then just move on. Personally, I do not know nor do I care who this Omarosa bitch is. I come here to read about NYC HW and what you all have to say about them. Bring it on Gdammit and do not walk out!! I will be so fucking pissed at you I might just track you down…lol.

      Seriously folks, if you don’t agree with someone then just move on by..right? And look, if someone is trying to get your goat (not saying this about Otay but just in general) and you allow them to do so, well then dummy you! You’ve given them what they wanted. Stawwwwwwp!

  107. Kellys wonky implants says:

    Why are these ignorant, racist comments remaining here? What the fuck is your problem?

    • TLM says:

      Somehow I am never aware when arguments are happening on the blog…it always catches me by surprise. But I am too lazy to scroll back and find the history. LOL. And doing that would take time away from my writing my observations about Jill and her Bedazzler cuff bracelet. 😉

  108. yesIwatchthiscrap says:

    So who is planning on watching the Housewives of DC? I have to admit I am a little bit compelled by the whole gate crashing stuff. I don’t wach the other shows, and I have no idea why the NY one gets me interested so much. But I am starting to feel a tug towards watching D.C.

    • Katiecoo says:

      OH I will be all over that one.

      • lillybee says:

        I will give it a try. The cast appears to be intelligent except for the White House party crashers.

      • Adgirl says:

        I for one can’t wait for DC! I think the women and the location will be interesting.
        Can I say something maybe not too PC? Okay – I will anyway.
        I know many of the women on OC may have college degrees. I have no idea about the cast on ATL or NJ but I suspect they do not. All three of the above franchises are dwindling down to boring cat fights because the cast has nothing substantial to discuss and/or they do not deliver it in an articulate manner.

        NY fascinates me because the women are often witty, nuanced and miles more sophisticated (even when arguring) than OC/ATL/NJ. Hopefully, DC will be more like NY and less like ATL.
        BH is a crap shoot. There are many bright women in the Westside of LA and an equal number of attractive vapid idiots.

    • Viki55 says:

      I am not going to watch. The NYC thing has worn me out! As bad as NJ, is I can not imagine DC being any better.

    • dee says:

      Ugghh, but the Salahis are going to be on that one. I already dislike them so much.

    • shantygal says:

      Not interested and will not watch.

    • Pantry Viewer says:

      I’m going to give it a shot. I lived there for four years and look forward to seeing some new blood.

      I won’t watch the Hollywood one, though. Paris Hilton’s aunt and whatever – please, that will be so fake and manufactured. I mean, I realize they all are to some extent, but have no interest in the Hollywood one.

      Maybe DC will give us some actual hardworking, real women – I’ll watch what happens…until I don’t want to anymore!

      • Pantry Viewer says:

        Oh, and about the Salahis, I think it might be a bit delicious to watch them act like they are society hot-shots as the season unfolds and then be busted irl on the show for crashing the White House at the end of the season. If they are uppity and I’m hoping for someone to knock them down a peg or two, as I did with Jill, I can rest assured that will be coming by season’s end.

      • dee says:

        Ha! As if Hollywood isn’t fake enough, now we have Hollywood Housewives.

        • Pantry Viewer says:

          I know, right? God help us all on that one!

        • dee says:

          Forgot to add I don’t think that Bravo is going to show the Salahis party crash. They almost got in trouble and I don’t think that neither Bravo nor the Salahis want to bring up that fiasco.

          • Pantry Viewer says:

            Oh, geez. Thanks for telling me. I didn’t realize that. Well, I’ll just have to know they get busted and have that be enough for me 😉 I still want to give the other housewives a shot and hope they are educated and interesting. Seems Bravo is going to the lowest common denominator with NJ and Jill’s behavior and the drugged out mom from OC. Don’t know why I’m holding out hope that DC will be a little more highbrow, but I am!

        • kats2 says:

          Yes BUT I think or hope it will be a very lavish, filthy rich depiction and not just an upgrade from the OC with made up drama and people playing rich for the cameras.

      • jennifer says:

        I also think I will try it…as much as I’d love to walk away, I addicted to this stuff 🙂 lol

    • kats2 says:

      I would love to say no way, I had enough! But I will be watching and protesting the party crasher wannabe’s. I agree besides that loser couple the rest of the women based on their bios seem very smart and actually have careers and do real charity work. So that should be interesting. I also find DC to be a different planet and perhaps we will get to see it play out and understand it better.

    Goddamn, I take a few days off this blog and I come today to see this fuckery? I’m going back to watching the World Cup games. Even with my team losing, it’s more enjoyable than this. And seriously? Omarosa? I thought this was about the Housewives.

      • dee says:

        Viki, I’m sorry. I don’t mean to upset you or any of the other fine people that come here to have fun. I just feel that she only answers posts where she can run around the comments and/or questions. But you know what, you are so right. I’m leaving this shit alone. Especially because I just asked for the same to be done on another post.

  110. yesIwatchthiscrap says:

    Has there ever been a Housewives cross over? Like an OC lady showing up on Atlanta? Just curious becasue at some point you would think it’s bound to happen. I guess Alex and Simon on BGM kind of counts.
    What cross overs would you like to see?

    • Viki55 says:

      Good question. The only cross-overs I know about have been in real life, book signings and such. It might be fun to have NeNe visit Danielle. They could do the poll thing together!

    • Pantry Viewer says:

      I tried watching OC last season, but it bored me to tears, alternating with wanting to claw Alex’s stupid, vapid, self-important eyes out, so I quit watching that one.

      I dropped NJ this season after the first episode and don’t want that crap anymore.

      I tried one bit of Atlanta, but that wasn’t my thing.

      I would enjoy seeing B come back sometimes to NY, only if Jill and Kelly aren’t there. I won’t be watching if they are there.

      Maybe Gretchen could move to NY. Without that Slade guy. I need a little more Simon, though. And I really missed his blogs.

  111. vgirl511 says:

    I am suprised that Jill’s PR people didn’t tell Jill that she should take team BRAS side about the bullying issue. If Jill were to tell Kelly that she was not actually bullied, like LuAnn told Kelly that she instigated a lot, I think that would have been a much better strategy.

    • yesIwatchthiscrap says:

      It would have even been better if she just stayed out of it. But she insists she was “there” right after and she was bullied too. I really wish LuAnn would have just stright out asked why Kelly insisted on the whole Chef/cook argument instead of going on and on….where in the end Kelly didn’t have to straight out answer. All of the women need to get lessons in keeping things simple and keeping their mouths shut.

      • Viki55 says:

        Kelley is not capable of answering questions about her behavior. It is sad but true. It truly would be a waste of time.

    • vgirl511 says:

      Not that Jill could do anything to completely redeem herself, but it would probably get her a little leniency in the court of public opinion.

  112. Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

    Lynn,

    I have been with this blog since almost the beginning. I used to be Misty’smom. I rarely speak about myself, but I am about to pull a small paragraph of Dina’s book and make this “about me” for a moment.

    I live in a real world that kind of sucks right now. The company I had hoped to retire from has closed, my terminally ill father in law has moved in with us for me to care for, and my dog (Misty) has a life threatening illness that is requiring much extra love and attention and medical steps to try and pull her back from. (Which is why I changed my screen name—It was painful to keep typing her name, thinking she was going to leave me soon)

    The RHNY became an escape for me, and then I found this blog. I loved the witty and hysterical posts, and equally loved the way YOU see the ridiculous behavior of the wives and call them on it. It was a pleasant diversion IN SPITE of the name being about hate. Most of the posters seemed to take that word in a tongue in cheek manner and I quickly came to look forward to hearing from Hooked on Housewives, Had Enough, Boston, Mamaz, etc. Emt2, Olivia, Kat, Katiecoo and many others have also entertained and distracted me with well thought out posts and humor that I definitely “got”.

    Sadly, we have lost some great poster’s on here (some who trashed you and are therefore not missed, but others who really brought good stuff to the comments as well) And it seems we may be in danger of losing more, even if temporarily. Taking this morning as an example, Boston popped on to post and quickly just left. That is a small gem we will never get to read now. The blog comments deteriorated and once again became about one person trying to stir shit (pardon my wording). When we have a troll that comes on everyone recognizes that shit stirring and calls it out. Yet, here in our membership, we have a person spitting venom and vitriol and attacking individuals, all in the name of “oxygenating a dead blog”. I for one, do not think your blog is EVER in danger of dying and cannot fathom why anyone who is your true fan would feel the need to “pump oxygen” into it. And then they become a dog with a bone (and I owned a pit bull, I know tenacity in a pup LOL) and simply will not let it go, continually reposting the obviously offensive comments, telling people to leave your blog, rejoicing when they do so and in general making the entire page look like some kind of militia based, hateful in the worst way, crazed rant. And they continue this pattern EVEN WHEN NO ONE RESPONDS TO THEM! If it was a once or twice thing I would not be leaving this novel for you, but it is constant. We had 3 days of great commenting and fun, and now we are right back to it.

    I do not think this is what you intended when you began this blog. I really like your writing style and want to continue following your other blogs about new shows, but I do not want to be associated with this low brow crap like this morning, or last week, or the week before that one. Please do not make me pull another page from Dina and just stop filming! And I do not think I am alone in this. Thanks for listening. I know this is VERY long, but I really felt it necessary. If you feel it is too long, please know you have my PERMISSION to delete it! (I know you do not like to do that, but this time I leave it to you.)

      Right on Duchess! I too come to this blog for the tongue-in-cheek comments and for Lynns’ witty blogs. We don’t need anyone to be stirring up shit. I am sorry you are going through a rough time. I can empathize because I too am dealing with some stuff right now. Between doctors appointments, dealing with kids and life in general, there are days when this blog helps me deal! It allows me to laugh when I have a hard time finding humor. It lets me vent frustrations over a stupid reality show and at the same time vent the frustrations that are in my life right now. Mostly it allows me a chance to let my voice be heard. I don’t comment here as much as some do but for the most part I have always felt welcomed. Even when we have had trolls on this site, most of us have responded to them with humor and politeness. It saddens me when anyone comes to this blog with the intent to stir up controversy and shit. I have defended the person in question, at times. I believe everyone has a right to share their opinion RESPECTFULLY! I don’t agree with her or others opinion all the time. But…I can’t defend anyone who is disrespectful and abusive in their post. No one should be told to STFU or be called names or badgered. I hope Lynn can do something. I don’t want to see good people driven from the blog.

      Duchess of Dryer Lint
      Thank you for your post. I agree with you.
      I hate the thought of others leaving too.
      I come to this blog to snark and read snark about the Bravo Housewives series.
      I want no part of real life hate. There are unfortunately other sites that cater to these individuals need to voice their ignorance.
      I can’t respect myself if I let another disrepect me and my peers. It is 2010 and this world is diverse. Diversity is a gift. Accept it.
      Or be Kelly stagnant frenectic energy.

      Please Lynn…

      Thank you. I left this blog awhile back believing that the poster had some validity here with other posters. I felt as I feel with some issues in the real world, why try? You have restored my faith in people by posting your objections to someone who is not what I believed this blog was about. Thank you for your courage in doing so. This gargage had to be stopped. Can’t do anything right now about the oilspill but am so glad this could be cleaned up.

    BGM – have you guys been watching? I just watched last week’s episode (sorry I’ve been busy). I was thinking about how Jason loves to have people around all of the time while Bethenny does not. I am more like Bethenny. I would be completely stressed out of I did not have my down time away from people. I think he would be stressed not having his buddies all about. I think that is potentially a huge quality of life conflict for them.

    • jennifer says:

      I an am like Jason and my husband is like B- I love having plp, but he just wants it to be us. I think Jason (who is sexy IMHO) and B are super sute and sweet! The people who are saying she is “harping” on him (not here but reviews) if you filmed my marriage there would be times both my husband and I came off looking bad, but we apologize and we kiss and make up- thats just marriage and real life and thats what I like seeing on BGM?

    • Pantry Viewer says:

      I am surprised at the parallels I see with B and myself – I’m that way with regard to how much I want to just be around other people. I’m kinda surprised Jason is that way – he seemed more reserved. Anyway! Hope they find a happy medium.

      DH was watching B’s new show with me on the couch. He’s a gruff ex-Marine and thinks this show and my watching it are ridiculous and likes to poke fun at me 😉 We laugh.

      Anyway! At Bethenny’s therapist’s office, I was kinda shocked to hear her telling my story. I left home for boarding school at 15, by my choice, because my home life was insanity with my parents drinking and affairs and crazy things going on. They had plenty of money, but we were raised in a crazy environment. Same thing as her, drinking early, clubs early – all of that – becaues I thought it was normal.

      I never went home after boarding school. Parents divorced and my dad never spoke to us again – well, he did, but it sure was ugly and hateful as he channeled his new wife. Shame on both of them. My father did horrible, despicable things to his children and then just disappeared.

      Anyway, so my dad calls a few years ago when he finds out he has cancer. I go to his hospital and he tells me all this crazy ass shit about how he wished he had never married my mother, having us kids was a mistake, his illegal alien wife was going to get his money because she had six kids from different husbands and needed the money more than us, etc., etc., etc. WTH did I go to hear that for? It was the ugliest thing I have ever seen a human being do.

      Anyway! DH says during B’s therapist visit, “Do you really think you need to be watching this?” As we were both surprised she was kinda telling my story – I really didn’t realize the extent of the similarities. But I told him, no, love me some B and it makes me happy to see we both survived some awful crap and have happy families of our own. He even patted my hand during it – what a sweetie. I’m also glad it was just touched on briefly and then on to the fun stuff!

    The Jill Zarin media blitz is on. This is a tweet from one of her publicists:

    AKRPR Just leaving @usweekly w @Jillzarin stopped into the Editors/news mtg saw @APuliti love it !
    about 3 hours ago

    Holy lightbulb Batman –

    Got the bug to watch Reunion part deux and I believe I have a new twist re: why B did not like Kelly or want her to be on the show at all.

    B went to that party @ Kelly’s house w/ her BF. Kelly snubbed her throughout the eve and cozied up to B’s BF. B, rightfully got pissed. It’s a girl thing. Who would want to be on the same tv show as the bitch who craved attention to such a slimy degree.

    NOT A SMART MOVE KELLY.

    Oh chit, this IS Kelly we are talking about, after all.

  118. OMG– Must watch video of Jillzilla’s cameo on Kathy Griffin’s My Life on the D List!
    She “pops in out of nowhere” while Kathy Griffin and Paris Hilton are shopping in L.A. on Robertson Blvd., be-lines over to Paris, kisses major ass, name drops, and subtly (NOT!) suggests that SHE should be shopping with Paris. It’s CLASSIC Jill! WWHL will be interesting Thursday since Kathy G. is guest co-hosting. Can’t wait!

    please stop responding to this and let this continue to be about i hate jill zarin.

    What the hell is going on? I must be on the wrong blog. I have no idea what the above comments are for….I’m confused at all the ….whatever. Bye Ladies.

  121. EmmaJames says:

    Jill and Alex were friends…..and Jill and Ramona were kind of accquaintances

    Hey – I’m several pages behind, so I hope this is the most recent page? I’m watching part 3 of the Reunion. I hate that Andy didn’t tell Kelly she was out of control. Bleh.

    The New Jersey girls had been my favorites and I was trying to get into this season, but Dina was my favorite. I don’t blame her for leaving, because you could just tell there was no joy in it for her this season, but without her and Lexi, the show is too small. No Dina, more Danielle and a broke Teresa is not what I signed up for. I like Jac’s family, except for Ashley, and I love Caroline’s family but there’s just not enough for a show without the relationship with Dina and Caroline. Kim G and more of Danielle’s creepy friends are no substitute for the original cast – they’re loathsome.

  123. Morgaine Swann says:

    A comment about the clothing on the Reunion special – Sonja was the best dressed because I couldn’t remember what she wore – I just remembered her being fabulous. Bethenny’s dress was pretty and I loved her shoes, but I wouldn’t have put them together. I never like Alex’s clothes, Ramona looked cute, Jill – ugh, Countess – boring, and Kelly looked like she escaped from a toga party. Someone really needs to edit her wardrobe.

  124. Morgaine Swann says:

    Bethenny is about to blow a gasket and I don’t blame her. I’d knock Kelly out.
