I Hate Jill Zarin Bethenny’s Getting Married? – The In Laws Visit June 18, 2010
Before we get into BGM? I wanted to talk about Jill Zarin’s secret blog. Jill indicated last night after the final reunion episode aired that she was releasing a blog only to fans who registered on her site. I was sent Jill’s blog early this morning from someone who did register to get the letter. I posted it immediately early this morning. A few hours later, Jill clearly realized that the blog was out there and that she wasn’t going to be able to keep it secret from anyone. She realized that there was nothing “sacred” about her stupid blog, and that is when she posted it on Bravotv.com.
Jill sensors her comments on her blog so closely that she is continually saying that is it “down” when the site comes back up, there are all new glowing positive comments for Jill along with her little responses. The site isn’t “going down”, it is being taken down in order to sift through and add all of the new comments that make it appear as though everybody loves Jill Zarin. It is astounding to me how many people are buying into her bullshit and remain fans of Jill Zarin! But it dawned on me that I’ve said several time that Jill thinks her fans are stupid. If the shoe fits….
Sorry to all those Jill fans out there but I get why Jill thinks you’re all stupid, she continually shovels crap full of lies and you’re all buying it hook, line and sinker. So I guess you could say that Jill is right, her fans are not all that bright!
On to Bethenny’s Getting Married? (btw, I hate the name of the show, they could do better)
I’m really enjoying the stark contract of Bethenny’s show to the nightmare that is the Real Housewives of New York. Of all of the housewives in all of the cities, Bethenny is the one that can definitely carry an entire hour, particularly with everything that was going on in her life during the filming of the show.
I have to give her huge kudos for putting everything on television. Maybe she is hiding some things but it certainly appears as though we’re seeing her life, such as it is. I think she’s got a fascinating life and with her wit and personality it is genuinely entertaining! Her supporting players are also perfect for the show. Luckily for Bethenny, Jason is natural on camera, he doesn’t appear to be acting or changing himself for the cameras. He seems like a really great guy! I also love her new assistant, Max and it is really nice to see that Bethenny’s first assistant that we saw filmed months ago on RHONY in the scene where Bethenny found out that her pregnancy had hit the internet, is still with her.
The crazy wedding planner seems like he is trying really hard but I was really surprised to continually hear him shooting down Bethenny’s wishes for her wedding. He tried to bullshit Bethenny into thinking he had been to a function at the Four Seasons with the cotton candy thing, apparently this guy doesn’t know Bethenny, she’s sharp as a tack and there is no way this guy is going to get away with anything!
Jason’s parents seem so sweet, normal and down to earth! I sincerely hope that this family will become Bethenny’s family and she’ll never feel alone again. It was so cute how she hosted this cute couple without Jason there, I’m sure it gave her an opportunity to get to know them better. I can only imagine the stress of having to cook for people when you have the title of “chef”. It is probably pretty demanding. Bethenny just seems to roll with the punches.
I enjoyed watching the genuine excitement that Jason’s mom, Carol showed while shopping for wedding gowns with Bethenny. Many women dream of the day that they help with their own daughter’s wedding so for someone who only has a son, and a son who passed away, this must have been an unexpected thrill. She was clearly so touched that Bethenny included her in the daunting task of finding a dress.
I think Bethenny has lost her mind walking around the store registering for her wedding gifts in 6 inch heels. I had to laugh when Bethenny fell into a fit of laughter in the store and the story that she and Jason came up with about “the people” visiting them and having dinner. I love that Jason and Bethenny enjoy each other’s company and you can see that they love being together.
Another clue that this wedding planner has got his head up his ass was bringing Bethenny to the vanilla box that was as far away from what she asked for as you can get. What the hell was he thinking?
I didn’t really understand why this group of Jewish women hired a Natural Foods Chef to talk to them at a gathering but what the hell? I guess if they’re paying her fee, she’s going to do it. Poor Max, he really got thrown into the lion’s den. He told Bethenny during his interview that he would be great at anticipating her needs before she even knew she needed something. Oops, maybe having a car waiting outside would be a good idea as Bethenny walked outside into the cold after her appearance. The good news is I bet he never makes that mistake again, although Bethenny handled it pretty well.
The show really is packed with a lot! In this episode we saw a lot of Bethenny’s life, she’s not hiding anything, and even her therapy is highlighted where she talks about growing up and her horrible relationships with her parents. I admit you probably have to be a fan of Bethenny’s in order to enjoy the show, it is all her! As most of you know, I’m a huge Bethenny fan! She’s the kind of person you root for, you want her to do well, you want her to get what she wants, and you want her to win! Her humor is intelligent and I find myself smiling throughout the show, this is what television should be, entertaining!
One more Real Housewives of New York “lost footage” episode to come on Thursday night. Bethenny’s show will be running for several more weeks and there are plenty of other Bravo and non-Bravo shows to discuss. I will blog randomly about different shows but as always, please feel free to comment and discuss anything or any show you like!
Until next time…………….
