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
