I Hate Jill Zarin Bethenny’s Getting Married? II June 18, 2010

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…………….

In case anyone missed my last post from Celebitchy –

Kelly Bensimon Is Just As “Batty” As She Seems On TV
When Real Housewives of New York City’s resident airhead Kelly Bensimon hired a nanny in 2009 to watch her children Sea, 12, and Teddy, 10, her neighbors weren’t shy about alerting the new employee to what she’d signed up for. “They said, ‘You’re the fourth person in the last six months to work for her,’” claims the former nanny, adding that she thinks that Kelly is “crazy” and says she’s seen her start her day by spiking her coffee with Patrón tequila.


HD – Thanks for sticking around, your comments are fantastic!!!  xoxo

  1. I just wanted to carry this over from the previous page. It pretty much confirms that Jills’ trolls are out in force today!


    • desertgal66 says:

      The kid doesn’t even realize that everyone is just laughing at him.

    • Harry says:

      Yeah, that was just spammed over at Sucks too. Busy little bees those mudslinging Jill Zarin PR peeps.

  2. moriasheehan says:

    i looked at palmers tweet, i wasn’t blocked, should i follow?

    • I would do so only with extreme caution. If he realizes you aren’t a fan of dear Aunt Jill, he may harass and threaten you like he has others! Is there any laws protecting people from this?

    • LynnNChicago says:

      I wouldn’t follow em, thats exactly what they want, the more followers the longer this goes on and the more steam they pick up.

      Just like any other troll, ignore them and eventually they go away. I sent a few tweets then blocked him.

      • cusi77 says:

        Good evening Lynn!

        New banner! Great! We do not hide!

      • Move On... says:

        IT is absolutely hilarious to me how (to use your word) trolls out there that have such hatred for people would put up a blog/website in order to bash them and try to dig as deep as they possibly can in order to air all their dirty laundry, as well as anything they are trying to set up solely for their fans. What do you care? It seems as though your entire life is spent trying to bash people, including celebrities? Are you serious? Believe me….they don’t care about you….sorry to break it to you. They care about their families, their money, their appearance, and not what you may think about them. Don’t be upset with her PR people for doing their job and trying to make her happy and keep her stress-less.
        Move on, get over it, and just remember…we all have faults. If you are saying that you have NEVER talked badly about someone behind their back, you are absolutely NOT telling the truth. Why would you be so worried about spotlighting them, when you have done the same thing yourself? Find something else to do with your time. Who cares if she has a ‘secret’ blog?? Why would you even care? Especially if you don’t like her?? That means, it is suppose to be a secret from YOU! ugh.

  3. Looks like this Palmer is harassing Simon, Lynn and the book publisher for Simon and Alex. What scummy low-lives!

  4. moriasheehan says:

    it says palmer2007 is a girl named karen palmer

  5. Zipit Zarin! says:

    Rosy Palmer would be more like it hehe

  6. moriasheehan says:

    lynn and palmer are tooth and nail on twitter right now, go lynn

  7. kats2 says:

    I hate trolls and the one hangin here in the past 24 hours I really don’t like.

    I don’t like the banner (If Lynn or anyone else care) Ugly pics of Jill and Kelly please and maybe a message for the trolls.

  8. WindyCityWondering says:

    The activity from Jill’s camp is interesting – why is it continuing past the Reunion? It was revealed that Bethenny and Jill’s fight continued off season and Jill elected to take it onto the show – so is she following a similar formula with Alex? Taking Alex down will cost her more than she can afford to lose, since her fan base basically imploded this past season. She did not redeem herself at the reunion and when Ramona got her to go off – everyone, including her fans – got to see a very ugly, mean spirited women….she can’t apologize for being who she is. She is going after Alex and isn’t even waiting to see if she will be asked to return to the show! Does she really think she is invaluable to the housewives franchise? Jill is right about one thing – she has changed – into someone no one wants to watch.

    • It’s typical Jill. Plus , she may be afraid of what the lost footage will reveal!

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        I’m thinking lost footage will be along the lines of bloopers. I don’t think it will give us the real deal from the St. John trip.

    • I think that’s exactly right. Probably in jill’s little pea brain, she thinks she can smear Alex’s rep, but everyone already knows the truth. It’s too late for jill to win any fans back. Jill gets uglier every day.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Sincerely, I can’t come up with even one suggestion to give her to turn around the mess she has become…..

  9. Quincy IL says:

    It is my sincere desire that Jill Zarin reads this blog and the comments every day. Her nephew is welcome to read this site too. I’m sure Lynn doesn’t care if Jill is bothered by this blog. If this site upsets Jill Zarin and her family…. good.

    • kats2 says:

      Reading and visiting it is fine, Hell even stating who they are and debating the comments if they really have inside infor is fine, but be a buzz kill for and pissing on everyone else because we don’t like who you like IS NOT FINE.

  10. Adgirl says:

    Jill and her group are just fucking stupid PR wise. With all of her drive to be famous and become a luxury level celebrity Jill takes the low road every single time!

    If she had shut her mouth and keyboard after this season she would have been forgiven by the fans. This website would never have been started if Amazon-gate hadn’t stunk up TWOP.
    My most negative reactions to Jill have been to her (and her proxy’s) post season/off screen behavior. Stupid & mean doesn’t even cover it.

    • Quincy IL says:

      Maybe Jill had success in the past because she did this to others. She tried to destroy Bethenny and now she is trying to destroy Alex. So much for all of Jill’s apologies.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Deny, Deflect, Destroy – that is Jill. Maybe she has done this to others in her small world, but never in the public eye – so she is getting called out on it big time! Surprise!!!!

      • desertgal66 says:

        Jill is an idiot. She’s clumsily attempting to smear both Alex and Simon’s professionalism by mentioning his hotel, and equally clumsily attempting to manipulate Bravo with her stupid ultimatum. It’s so transparent, it’s laughable. As someone said, Jill can’t get out of her own way. 90% of the viewers are laughing at this woman’s machinations. It’s so pathetic, it’s funny.

  11. Rusty says:

    Lynn – I’m out again. Thank you very much for welcoming me back but the fun gets zapped quickly when Otay/Damien/Sybil and all the rest enter the picture. Your relationship with her/him and allowing her/him to continue to be on this board when she/he does next to nothing but cause trouble is one of this week’s great mysteries.

    This troll crap is beyond stupid. Step away from the computer screen every ten hours or so . . . and Otay . . . it must be time for your meds and nap again.

    Thanks again Lynn. Best.

    • Lynn told both Ann Lawrence and Damien to cut the crap. There is only so much a person can do with trolls. This is an open forum so it is impossible to keep them off 24/7. When Lynn see it or someone e-mails her that a problem is occurring, she handles it. Sorry if it is not a quick as you may like but for heaven sakes she has a life besides maintaining this site. Most of the regular posters call out the trolls or ignore them till they get tired and give up the game.

    • desertgal66 says:

      Aren’t you the same Rusty that wrote this on another blog?

      Rusty 21 hours ago
      What’s mindboggling to me is the amount of time each day the IHJZ peeps are on the website. Sunrise to sunset and then into the night or early, early the next day. The continual talk of “trolls” goes on and they are all on high alert for those nonexistent but perpetual trolls. Keep hunting Girls. Episodes are watching again and again. Episode words are copied down to make certain they can be included exactly right in their next postal web-rant. Postal is right. Now they are hating on just about every cast person at Bravo. In fact, I laughed out loud one day when they were truly hating BRAVO itself and brewing something. Oh yes . . . I think Lynn wrote to Andy expounding on just what she would do if Bravo continued to do this or that. That might work for ya Lynn. My Heavens but your sense of self is so powerful in your own mind and those of your wee and mouthy minions .
      No one new is really welcome there. Just a lot of the same old, crabby, grizzly posters who continually confirm to each other that they have each other’s back. High five.
      As I’ve said before at Cleo’s Mommys site, it all was so much fun at the beginning. Full of bright, witty posters dishing what felt like snappy snark. It jumped the shark big time and very quickly. I will forever be curious (ok – one more week tops) why Lynn allowed Otay to continue to post while others were strictly forbidden.
      Here’s to your 15 minutes Lynn. Cheers. Clock’s running down.
      Oh . . . it’s been excitedly announced by Lynn and cheered enthusiastically by the crew, that she will be hating on the Big Brother cast next

    • RileyKitty says:

      Here is my problem. Your post is bitching about trolls, but it is full of judgment making you no better. Telling people to step away from the computer screen every 10 hours or so is bullshit! As an adult, if I want to sit here all my waking hours, I am free to do so, as is anyone else who posts. I, or anyone else here, don’t need someone else telling us to take a time out or a freaken nap.

      We have been dealing with trolls since day 3, assuming that every troll who comes here is otay is ridiculous.

      Sorry everyone but this shit gets tedious after a while.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      Rusty you have no idea what you’re talking about. If you think that there is only one person in this entire world that wants to come in here and harass/debate/give opinions, you aren’t as smart as I thought you were.

      This blog is to discuss whatever topic moves you all. If every time someone comes in with an opposing opinion, you all take off, they win. They have now taken over. If that is what you all want, why are we even here?

      I have said it several times, if you don’t like a post, scroll on by and write what you want to talk about. Ignoring someone is the best way to make the go away.

      • Rusty says:

        Lynn . . . I’ve NEVER had any problem with opposing opinions. Take a look at some of MY posts. My only problem has always been the shit-stirring of Otay/Damien and I see that she is here to stay. No worries. I’m out.

        • LynnNChicago says:

          Once again, not as smart as I thought you were, if you think the two are one in the same, you’re wrong. As I said, there is more than one person who wants to create problems for all of us, and there will be more to come, lets not be naive. If you run and hide every time, they win. Please don’t take this as a request for you to stay, however, if you want to go, go!

          • Rusty says:

            You might not be as smart as you think you are Lynn. Damien’s posts keep trying to stir up the same old stuff – me, Cleo and someone else . . . over and over again. I only know of one person who would so obsessive. The writing style is also very similar. Regardless . . . it’s your deal to handle.

            • desertgal66 says:

              No, Damien’s posts KEPT trying to stir up the same old stuff. In case you missed it, he stopped hours ago, and Lynn has since started a new blog that is devoid of his posts.

              It’s interesting how you avoid answering if you are the same Rusty who slammed Lynn and this blog in the quoted text above.

              You keep arguing that everyone should scroll by trolls, and, yet, you pay more attention to the issue than anyone else. It’s the only issue you’ve addressed recently. Why don’t you take your own advice and scroll on by?

      • Move On... says:

        That completely contradicts this entire blog and what you are doing here… practice what you preach.
        Quit spending so much time worrying and stressing about someone you DON’T know, you will NEVER meet, and probably doesn’t want to know you anyway. Keep it Movin’.

  12. kats2 says:

    I agree, have a question that is off topic – what do you think of blue nail polish? It’s bluish, silver, platinum ish???

    • moriasheehan says:

      i like it as long as it isn’t towards the turquoise, that looks a bit hello kitty, YKWIM

      • kats2 says:

        Moriah – thanks for the reply!!!! It’s not Turquoise or ish (I’m not Luann) 🙂

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Wearing OPI “What’s with the Cattitude?” from the Shriek collection right now! It is a light blue – which has been my favorite summer color for many years. Try it – you might like it too!

      • kats2 says:

        Good tip thanks WindyCity btw I’m in Chi-town too!

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          Was yesterday an excellent example of windy or what! We lost power for 7 hours and I missed the reunions1,2 and 3…..

          • kats2 says:

            That was scary winding I didn’t think the windows would make it. The sky was an ugly dark blackish color, surprised there wasn’t more damage and peeps hurt.

    • 212 says:

      Pretty…go for it.

    • That sounds pretty. But, I think a metallic cobalt blue would be pretty too. 🙂

    • LuAnn says:

      FWIW, I’ve been wearing OPI Yoga-ta Get This Blue for 2 summers (toes only). Love it.

  13. moriasheehan says:

    i sure missed a lot not finding this blog earlier. sometimes it’s like a foreign language to this old lady

  14. RileyKitty says:

    Good Evening ladies! I got the hubby to watch BGM yesterday with me, his fav part was when Bethenny said the baby was listening to the wallflowers & gangster rap. He wanted to know where the vile red headed woman & the cuckoo bird were. He clearly thought we were watching RHONY. I said they aren’t on this show. He’s like Bethy got her own show? Honey, it’s BethENNy. Baby steps!! All is good though because he retained the most important info of all. Jill is VILE & Kelly is cuckoo 🙂

    • kats2 says:

      That’s fun! You both can snark at home together.

    • LOL! You’re right, he got the important info right!

    • RileyKitty says:

      @kats2 you would think that after being married to me for nearly 17 years he would be able to snark but it is lost on him. My son & I will get going & my hubby looks at us like we are speaking a foreign language. But he is cute, so I keep him around 😉

    • HD says:

      LOL @ Bethy! LOL! You are so right…baby steps. My husband asks me EVERY episode, now which one don’t you like? At this point I am screaming, “the red head! The read head!” If I told him names he would not remember. LOL!

  15. RE-re-posting this from the previous blog! It’s too good not too. Plus, I have a response! I was posting it while Lynn was creating this one.

    Watercooler: 20 Things We Learned From The Real Housewives of New York City

    Now that The Real Housewives of New York City’s three-part reunion smackdown is done, we’d like to take this time to reflect on the lessons learned — for they were many. As for how many are actually useful, well, good luck with that.

    1. Hate is part of the ecosystem on Kelly Bensimon’s planet.

    2. Systematic bullying is never OK. Nor are incoherent YouTube videos.

    3. Gummi Bears are narcotics.

    4. But they aren’t a processed food. Again, on Kelly’s planet.

    5. Ramona Singer is “a little bit” psychic.

    6. Sonja Morgan is made of awesome.

    7. Women in their 80s shouldn’t wear ice-skating outfits.

    8. Or crash island getaways.

    9. Brooklyn has a Fashion Weekend.

    10. A chef is a cook.

    11. Gotham magazine will hire anyone.

    12. Making lemonade out of lemons is hard.

    13. Alex McCord is a better woman when Simon is off-camera.

    14. Bethenny Frankel has no poker face.

    15. Andy Cohen has the patience of a saint and the skills of a lion tamer.

    16. A monogrammed gift bag is a sure sign that someone is trying to kill you.

    17. “Yeah, that’s what I’m talking about,” is music-producer speak for “we’ll just Auto-Tune away that soul-killing sound that keeps coming out of your face.”

    18. Posing nude is a good way to teach your children…something. Possibly shame.

    19. Jennifer Gilbert is either too sane or too dull to be a real Real housewife.

    And finally…

    20. Money can’t buy you class.

    Did we miss anything? Please, add your own RHONY life lessons below!


    GothamTomato: Fri, Jun 18 2010 at 11:54 AM EDT

    21. Wearing fur is the humane way to help animals. It would be cruel to expect the poor animals to wear all that fur themselves. It interferes with their cartwheels. Peta agrees with this.

    22. When you tell someone to get a new hobby, you should always specify that the new hobby should NOT be posting to Amazon under fake names.

    23. When you try to ice people out of your social circle, (or your tv show), you should first make sure they aren’t the most popular people in your social circle because it will only come back to bite you in the ass.

    24. Don’t behave like a hateful, dishonest shrew when you’re about to start shilling your new advice book that’s supposed to be about the wisdom you & your sister got from your mother.

    25. Being the 4th wife of a bigot is OK: Money may not buy you class, but it will buy you a title-seeking gold digger who’ll overlook such details.

    ksider: Fri, Jun 18 2010 at 12:26 PM EDT

    26. It’s ok to call yourself a supermodel, even though no one has ever heard of you and you’ve never been on the cover of a legitimate fashion magazine. If you believe it then everyone else will.

    27. Dynasty dresses never go out of style.

    28. When in doubt about what the conversation is about, just say “satchels of gold”.

    29. Al Sharpton coined the phrase “you can’t handle the truth”.

    30. A**holes, everybody has one.

    31. Horses love burnt pancakes. PETA said so.

    32. Teddy Bensimon needs her own Bravo show or at least a book deal featuring all those notes.

    33. At Columbia they teach that, in ,the messenger always gets killed. Because that’s not fiction. So clearly they were supposed to kill Alex.

    and finally:

    Surgeon General’s Warning: Listening to Kelly Bensimon causes Lung Cancer, Heart Disease, Emphysema, Cerebral Hemmorhage, Aneurysm, and may complicate normal thought.

    bobby-j: Fri, Jun 18 2010 at 7:02 PM EDT

    35. Marrying/dating European men, speaking in a foreign language and adding “darling” to every sentence does not make you sound sophisticated. It makes you sound like a dumb drag queen.

    36. After spending weeks maligning the character of your former BFF just make her some latkes, throw in some crocodile tears and pretend that you’ve changed.

    37. No matter what the clock says, you never turn down “Tuuuuuurrrrrrtle Tiiiiimmmmeee!!!”

    38. When you disagree with a statement made by a woman you dislike, feel free to call her a hoebag. Just ignore the fact that her father just died.

    39. When you’re trapped on Scary Island with a bunch of bullies suggest an impromptu photo shoot.

    40. When you’re on your second marriage or currently divorced, you’re allowed to make snarky comments about the insignificance of 18 years of marriage.

    41. If you’re a chef/cook, never talk about what you do. It’s creepy.

    • kats2 says:

      I love this list, so funny. I hope J-K-L reads it.

    • I have a few too, I just posted on the other one before realising that everyone had already moved on to the new page.

      42. For the right price, even you can have a singing career and be on itunes
      43. Feelings belong in 1979
      44. The island of St. Johns has been renamed Scary Island
      45. When you divorce a Count your title becomes Countless
      46. Literally, anyone can write and publish a book.
      47. “Get a hobby” is a worse insult than “fuck you whore”
      48. PETA doesn’t care if you wear fur
      49. If you sit next to someone who enjoys one night stands, it makes you a ho-bag
      50. Columbia University accepts applicants by a randomly picking their names out of a hat.

  16. kats2 says:

    43. The surest way to “systematically bully” someone is to accuse a person of doing it to you (preferably someone you have an agenda against), then continue the “bullying” accusations whenever they attempt to defend themselves. Don’t ever give in. This will make them start to question their own actions, and turn otherwise sane people against them.

    44. When in a social setting with four intelligent, successful, opinionated, all around dynamic women:

    A. Say things like: “you’re a ho-bag”, “you’re channeling the devil”, “your blood type is Pino Gregio”, “you’re not a chef, you’re a cook”.

    B. Misappropriate sayings when trying to make a point like saying “making lemons into lemonade” when meaning “she’s trying to kill me”.

    C. Randomly spew names and phrases like “satchels of gold”, and “Al Sharpton!” without rhyme or reason.

    D. After you’ve gotten everyone all riled up, storm out with the bullying accusations, chug a few beers, then come back and offer them gummie bears and a photo shoot on the beach.

    45. When you are caught lying, manipulating, sabotage-plotting, and the like, quickly recover by denying, feigning memory loss and accusing/blaming others, followed by admission, tears, apologies, and hug requests. Once mission is complete, use social networking and media contacts to repeat the cycle.

    46. When all else fails, sing an auto-tuned heavy song reiterating your meaningless title, and deeming you the most proper of all that is etiquette, while demonstrating otherwise with your behavior which is being filmed for a popular national TV show.

    47. When you can’t get your bff back after a fight, refocus your energy on destroying the reputation and lively hood of her new friend. That should work.

    48. If your PR team instructs you not to lash when being confronted about your despicable actions on national TV, instead put on a plastic smile, and nod agreeably. If you must roll your eyes, and throw daggers at your enemies to vent your frustration, be sure to do so while giving knowing looks to your on-air bff to appear as though you have comradely.

    49. When all else fails, resort to tears and storm out of the room.

    50. Contradictions are a girls best friend. They keep you interesting and popular. For example, tell people you don’t eat sugar, then ravage bag of jelly beans right in their faces. They’ll love it. Or, tell them you don’t drink alcohol, then emerge from the kitchen with shot glasses filled with a drink you’ve named after yourself, while bragging about how good it is. That’ll drive ‘em wild. Oh! And, there’s always the “I’m a vegetarian” schtick. Tell them that while nawing on a big fat juicy steak. Lastly wear fur in the name of Peta.

  19. lillybee says:

    On Jill’s blog she said that many book clubs have chosen her book for summer reading. I am wondering what book clubs?

  20. boston02127 says:

    So, Kelly’s knocking back coffee with Patrón in the morning. Doesn’t surprise me one bit. That alcoholic ball at the end of her nose keeps get bigger. You can see the diffrence in pictures.

    • In Kelly’s mind, since she doesn’t drink, Patron isn’t an alcohol. And that makes sense to her. 😛

      • boston02127 says:

        @A Former Jill fan~~~Kelly has a mind? 🙂

      • CuckooforCocoaPuffs says:

        And shouldn’t we celebrate that? I think that we should all remember to celebrate her every day.

      • desertgal66 says:

        Allow me to translate that into Kellyish:

        Patron IS alcohol. Kelly doesn’t, like, drink today, although she did drink yesterday. However, she isn’t going to drink on Arbor Day, because Arbor Day, like, does not celebrate the systematic bullying of weeds. And, as everybody knows, wearing fur is okay, as long as, like, cute little animals continue to appear in Disney films. Now, tequila really, really doesn’t count as alcohol if you put it in your morning coffee, because, like, coffee is not alcohol, and, like, it’s all good for the Gulf oil spill. Which you would all understand if you would just, like, read one of her books, because women were, like, handcuffed for wearing bikinis in 1951, which is why we all wear love today. Celebrate gum berries for their, like, gum berriness and never let four women gang up on Johnny Depp. Unless he doesn’t mind.

  21. Sadie says:

    Much better banner thanks Lynn

  22. Jennifer says:

    Can I ask…. Has there ever been an article or blog where the reviewer or writer didn’t think Kelly is crazy? I was thinking about it today and rarely we see something saying ‘ let’s forgive Jill’ but I would be hard pressed to find someone saying Kelly not nuts…. in every media forum she is called crazy and said to have had breakdown, so my point is you’d like she would relize NO ONE seems to be giving her good press. I’d be soooooo embarrased my rep was torn to shreds like that ….. just a thought

    • RileyKitty says:

      I haven’t seen one. Everything i read after Kelly’s break down thought she was whackadoo (though they may say it nicer)

      • desertgal66 says:

        Same here. The universal opinion is that Kelly is nuts. The only one who doesn’t agree is Kelly herself, but that’s because she’s nuts.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Yeah, there was no way around the lunatic after that break…through.

    • error 404 says:

      huh? Has anyone even seen her outside the house. After her breakdown, she spends all day tweeting incoherent nonsense and filming her own interviews. Seriously, she films her own interviews inside her apt! Bethenny is all over TV and even Jill will work her way onto her sister’s radio show or that fly by night tv station she frequents. Little Kikilet sits at home and films herself. I think she just got her 3rd dog. Caaaaarrrrraaaaazzzzzzyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!!

      • CuckooforCocoaPuffs says:

        My favorite KKB tweets today:

        @hollyvernon I wish I were crazy. It would give me an edge. The show gives me way too much credit.

        @sethny My blood type is Corona, not pinot either

        • desertgal66 says:

          If she’s saying the show gives her too much credit for actual intelligence, she’d be wrong. No one is left with any misconceptions about how dumb this woman is.

    • Need a Hobby says:

      Kelly thinks it’s all good because it elevates her platform for charitable work which as far as I can tell involves photo ops and personal appearances with drive by Hiiiiieeeeees and Biiiiieeeees.

      Have to wonder….since I tend to nod off during Kelly speak….was the fur thing ever resolved? Does Kelly think wearing fur is OK because she thinks somewhere there are a bunch of nekkid animals out there while she wears their fur?

      If so, why doesn’t she sponsor like a knit wear line for those poor critters? Or a charity fundraiser? I can see an instructional video where K is like knitting a teeny camisole for some poor vole or something.

      (And no, I actually haven’t been drinking…..)

  23. cusi77 says:

    Talking about “mosquito brain”, I read Teresa’s Blog in RHONY… jealousy is bad habit for a good health. The mother of 4 seems surprised that B did not get up to hug JZ… She had c-seccion 12 days previous the Reunion and was there filming for 7-8 hours, even if she wanted that “hug”, she was probably too tired to get up, you tweet!

    • kats2 says:

      Can’t stand T-Man, I wonder how many days she has to shave her forehead?

    • Jennifer says:

      She was surprises? Teresa is full of it- she wouldn’t forgive Danielle who as far as I can tell hasn’t actually done anything to her but B should forgive Jill who tried to destroy her career and is a mean bitch…..

    • Scorpiosue says:

      Honestly, I have no problem with B keeping her butt firmly planted on that couch, even if she was feeling ok to get up. If I was B there is no way I would be giving Jill a hug, but there are cameras and B is much more classy than me :).

  24. LucyHPotter says:

    MUST SEE!!! 2nd Parody of the Housewives from Jeff Payton.

  25. kats2 says:

    Changing franchises for a sec – anyone notice that Albie Manzo is not as cute as he was in Season 1, something is off this year. He’s balding (see back of his head), his skin looks like he breakouts. If the whole flunking out of Law school is true it must all be stress related. It sucks wish him the best, I hope he stays away from Ashley.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      I am still not gettin what RHONJ fans are getting out of this show. Someone help me here, is this not the most dull hour of television out there?

      They’re promoting scenes about Kim telling Caroline that Jacqueline is obsessed with Danielle? That is the big story this week? (YAWN!)

      We already know that Caroline is going to help her son Albie with a learning issue but Caroline told us on WWHL that it all ends up good so thanks for that Caroline!

      We know that Ashley is going to pull Danielle’s hair, get arrested and ends up with a minor fine and some community service.

      I cannot see this show getting better, it is one of the worst shows on telelvision.

      Maybe there is an entire other audience for this show that is in a different demographic, I just don’t get it.

      • kats2 says:

        I get nothing out of it. Maybe it’s a NJ Italian thing. I’m in chicago and half italian, they are not like any friends I have in NJ and I’m totally embarrassed they are Italian.

      • Free Ginger (formerly known as wolverinedg) says:

        I don’t get it either, Lynn. I find RHONJ so lame & boring I don’t even have it on as background noise when nothing else is on TV.

      • twoile says:

        Yea crazy like Kelti& those who want to see the the NJ tourist board go nuts too.

  26. error 404 says:


    Honestly, I hope they back together. No one else should be subjected to these two retards.

      • GreatExpectations says:

        His nickname is “the Playboy” in that book “Free Gift with Purchase” and in a mag article they said his nickname in the industry is Tripod.

        In any case, photographers are in a position in power in the industry vis a vis 14 year old models and have a long record of abusing that position. I think he comes across in this clip as used to getting his way and a huge flirt.

      • error 404 says:

        he looks like the theoretical love child of howdy-doody and a Keebler elf.

        and he looks much older than 65!

  27. TraceyK says:

    Hi gang! It dawned on me today (amazing how many things the subconcious can work on) what Kelly-world is. No, not the latest section at Disneyworld. Kelly lives like she’s in a Ralph Lauren ad. It really struck me when I read one of her ‘trucks, dogs and kids’ comments for the umpteenth time. It’s the leggy, horsey, toothy, let’s-have-a-picnic-on-the-beach-using-our-o-so-casual-thousand-dollar-blanket, lifestyle.

  28. cusi77 says:

    Thanks err!

  29. MommyFrazzled says:

    I saw the post from Palmer2007. To be honest Palmer2007, John, Jill, Kelly, Al Sharpton, The Chinese Fruitbat, or the Wizard of OZ. Any name you give the person they are pathetic.

    I really do not know why Jill has such a low opinion of herself. And she does, it shows in all her actions. If she thinks so little of herself why they hell would anyone else think highly of her? I have a daughter and I constantly have conversations on her becoming a woman, her own and not a replica of me. She should be confident, sure, educated, and work 150% percent on everything. There is never a time to be content sometimes. I was raised to make plans to be something other than a mom or wife, nothing wrong with either. But the point was that I have the option of being more than that if I want it. And I did. That is what I liked about Ramona when she said why she works so hard. Ramona can be off the wall sometimes but the woman makes her OWN money, pre RealHousewives!

    Jill needs to think about why does she care if people like her or not, and she cares A LOT. Why do you have to put others down because you feel down or feel slighted. She is slighted and justly so. I had the opportunity to see her in action and a few things she said and did were a complete contrast to who I thought she was. And she was not someone I would be friends with, that I would look up to, that I would trust.

    The show is over, but not for all of them. That is why Jill is still going on and on. Bethenny has a show and the others will make appearances. Whose fault is that? Not Alex, Not Ramona, Not Sonya, Not Kelly, Not Luann. There is only reason Jill and Bethenny are not friends now, and it because of Jill.

    Jill has got some balls blaming Alex for her troubles. Ramona and Alex may have thought many times the hell with Jill, Bethenny go on with your life. They didn’t do that because it was NOT about them it was about Bethenny and Jill. Jill you need to leave Alex alone because you got what you deserved. I am surprised Jill doesn’t blame Luann too. Luann made it her personal business to be the bodyguard not letting Bethenny within ten feet of Jill. I never heard Jill say don’t do it, and Luann was rude about it too, telling Alex what she should and should not say. GTFOOH I wonder what Luann thought when Jill then started all the talk that she needs to be there she should have done it long ago, then why didn’t you and it would have kept her from being in the middle of your crap?

    Luann, she told you not go to the island and you talked right over that. She was trying to say, you declined the invite and made it clear you wanted no parts of the party for whatever reason. Then you decide to just show up, where were you trained?! You don’t do that. Glass a water! You came on a plane and they always have water and a bathroom. If you were embarrassed you brought it on yourself.

    As it stands now, Jill wrote a book that sucked out loud, she wrote her own previews and got busted on it, she was selfish and mean to her cast mates who were trying to help her, she made the season such a buzz kill trying to turn it into the Jill Zarin show.
    It’s over, if Jill needs to blame someone or be upset, I suggest a nice big mirror. I hope she wears something nice when she look at herself.

    One note: I post what I want, where I want. I say what I feel without being too rude. I like Lynns’ Blogs as well as a few others including BravoTV. All the talk of following, unfollowing, blocking means nothing to me. If you put yourself out there then you are judged, and if you judge as harshly as Jill does sometimes then people are going to judge you back. Don’t open your mouth if you can’t take the truth and when the majority do not like you, they win. It’s that way in everything! The correct action to do is shut up, listen, take the advice, apply it or ignore it. If you don’t change then don’t be surprised when the perception of you doesn’t change either. I do not follow Kelly I stopped because the sick ramblings of that idiot seemed to slow my pc down and I stopped with Jill because I am going green and getting rid of everything toxic (same applied to Danielle of NJ, my screen got the clap, eeew)

    Somebody knows how many episodes will have BWM?

    • LynnNChicago says:

      I heard they had 8 episodes completed but they were still filming at the time. I think they’re waiting to see how the ratings go before they commit to a number of episodes.

      They just filmed Bethenny’s baby shower a few weeks ago so I think they’re looking at a winner!

      The true test will be when B’s show is on without following RHONY reunion/lost footage episodes.

      • cusi77 says:

        Thank you kindly Lynn. I like the new banner! We do not hide!

      • While searching today to try to find out if Max is paid assistant which I think he is, I saw on either his facebook page or twitter page that he was going to the wrap party just yesterday, I think it was. so I assume they’re done filming.

    • anutha hata says:


      IMDB has six listed. But who knows, they could probably keep taping more?

    So, as far as Kelly going to Columbia U – did she actually GRADUATE? Is there proof?

    • LynnNChicago says:

      nope, we only have her word…..and we know how far her word goes…

    • MNSUE says:

      I read an article on a Columbia newsletter somewhere. Someone must have linked to it here weeks ago. I’m going to go find it because I remember the point was “where are they now?” and Kelly left Columbia to take some modeling opportunities.

    There is absolutely nothing redeemable about the NJ show. NO one there is the slightest bit interesting.

      I think I’ll support Danielle on Twitter just to piss off Teresa LOL

      • ms molly says:

        I’m sure when we envision Danielle (the old whore felon ghetto look) all of us would just be sitting here, with our hands poised over the keyboards with the stage sound of crickets filling our brains. There is just nothing and I repeat nothing that would come to mind, the dialogue would surely have posters thinking that it must be Kellamity writing. The woman is just skanky.

      • Quincy IL says:

        There has to be a lot of women with this kind of past out there.

        Someone gave my son a collection of Playboys from the 1960’s. He was shocked when I told him that those women were old now, older than me.

        I actually did some work with my uncle at the Chicago and Lake Geneva Playboy Clubs, Lynn. My uncle worked for Wackinhut Detective Agency and I was underage for drinking alcohol. We would go to the Club and see if the Bunny’s or the Bartender would serve me, a young girl with an older man. They had strick policies at the Playboy and monitored the workers. They also made sure that the bunnies did not date customers. One of my tasks was to go into the bathroom, make sure there was toliet paper and it was clean. I was to watch the bathroom attendent through the door and make sure she was putting all of the tip money in the jar as they divided everything equally at the clubs. Yes, Lynn, I was a private detective in bathrooms all over Chicago. Bummer that I came of age and my sisters and cousins got my position at Wackinhut.

        • Quincy IL says:

          I saw the spelling errors. Oh, well…. I should read my posts before posting. LOL

          I have memories of the Playboy Club as a child too! How funny.
          There was a ski club on the North Shore of Chicago, the Snowflake Club (?).
          One of the hills we went to regularily was in Lake Geneva. We would sneak in to look at the bunnies.
          Iremember a friend had a runny nose so she took a role of toilet paper from the bathroom and this girl came screaming out after her!….. 🙂

    Satchels Of Gold: The Found Poetry Of Kelly Bensimon

    Last week I watched The Real Housewives Of New York City for the first time. I’ve only seen about 3 episodes so far, but upon hearing the words of one particular character, I felt as though I was on the precipice of something entirely new. Like T.S. Eliot and Allen Ginsberg, Kelly Bensimon is broadening the borders of the English language. She speaks entirely in poetry -a new breed of poetry- and I would like to share how I believe her words are meant to be presented.

    Satchels Of Gold
    by Kelly Bensimon
    edited by Alex Grabie

    She has knives on her tongue.
    She’s filled with knives.
    It’s like 1979
    Am I like this?
    Am I like that?
    I’m a yes person, you’re a no person.
    You’re cunning and deceitful
    and it’s creepy.

    Lemons into Lemonade!
    Lemons into Lemonade!
    I’m going now,
    to my happy place of cartwheels
    and rainbows
    and people being genuine to one another.

    I threw up
    the night before.
    I’m sick of taking
    my lollies and my gummies.
    In my defense, that’s what makes people crazy about me.

    Are you guys having a moment?
    Are you going to make out with tongue?
    She made her cry.

    Zip it! Satchels of gold
    Zip it! Kabuki vampire
    It’s not a forum.
    This is all white noise.

      All you would need is to have William Shattner read it, the way he did with Sarah Palin’s tweets.

  39. not that crazy says:

    This was posted at TV guide.com – TOO FUNNY!!
    Now that The Real Housewives of New York City’s three-part reunion smackdown is done, we’d like to take this time to reflect on the lessons learned — for they were many. As for how many are actually useful, well, good luck with that.

    1. Hate is part of the ecosystem on Kelly Bensimon’s planet.

    2. Systematic bullying is never OK. Nor are incoherent YouTube videos.

    3. Gummi Bears are narcotics.

    4. But they aren’t a processed food. Again, on Kelly’s planet.

    5. Ramona Singer is “a little bit” psychic.

    6. Sonja Morgan is made of awesome.

    7. Women in their 80s shouldn’t wear ice-skating outfits.

    8. Or crash island getaways.

    9. Brooklyn has a Fashion Weekend.

    10. A chef is a cook.

    11. Gotham magazine will hire anyone.

    12. Making lemonade out of lemons is hard.

    13. Alex McCord is a better woman when Simon is off-camera.

    14. Bethenny Frankel has no poker face.

    15. Andy Cohen has the patience of a saint and the skills of a lion tamer.

    16. A monogrammed gift bag is a sure sign that someone is trying to kill you.

    17. “Yeah, that’s what I’m talking about,” is music-producer speak for “we’ll just Auto-Tune away that soul-killing sound that keeps coming out of your face.”

    18. Posing nude is a good way to teach your children…something. Possibly shame.

    19. Jennifer Gilbert is either too sane or too dull to be a real Real housewife.

    And finally…

    20. Money can’t buy you class.
    21. Wearing fur is the humane way to help animals. It would be cruel to expect the poor animals to wear all that fur themselves. It interferes with their cartwheels. Peta agrees with this.

    22. When you tell someone to get a new hobby, you should always specify that the new hobby should NOT be posting to Amazon under fake names.

    23. When you try to ice people out of your social circle, (or your tv show), you should first make sure they aren’t the most popular people in your social circle because it will only come back to bite you in the ass.

    24. Don’t behave like a hateful, dishonest shrew when you’re about to start shilling your new advice book that’s supposed to be about the wisdom you & your sister got from your mother.

    25. Being the 4th wife of a bigot is OK: Money may not buy you class, but it will buy you a title-seeking gold digger who’ll overlook such details.
    26. It’s ok to call yourself a supermodel, even though no one has ever heard of you and you’ve never been on the cover of a legitimate fashion magazine. If you believe it then everyone else will.

    27. Dynasty dresses never go out of style.

    28. When in doubt about what the conversation is about, just say “satchels of gold”.

    29. Al Sharpton coined the phrase “you can’t handle the truth”.

    30. A**holes, everybody has one.

    31. Horses love burnt pancakes. PETA said so.

    32. Teddy Bensimon needs her own Bravo show or at least a book deal featuring all those notes.

    33. At Columbia they teach that, in ,the messenger always gets killed. Because that’s not fiction. So clearly they were supposed to kill Alex.

    and finally:

    Surgeon General’s Warning: Listening to Kelly Bensimon causes Lung Cancer, Heart Disease, Emphysema, Cerebral Hemmorhage, Aneurysm, and may complicate normal thought.
    35. Marrying/dating European men, speaking in a foreign language and adding “darling” to every sentence does not make you sound sophisticated. It makes you sound like a dumb drag queen.

    36. After spending weeks maligning the character of your former BFF just make her some latkes, throw in some crocodile tears and pretend that you’ve changed.

    37. No matter what the clock says, you never turn down “Tuuuuuurrrrrrtle Tiiiiimmmmeee!!!”

    38. When you disagree with a statement made by a woman you dislike, feel free to call her a hoebag. Just ignore the fact that her father just died.

    39. When you’re trapped on Scary Island with a bunch of bullies suggest an impromptu photo shoot.

    40. When you’re on your second marriage or currently divorced, you’re allowed to make snarky comments about the insignificance of 18 years of marriage.

    41. If you’re a chef/cook, never talk about what you do. It’s creepy.

  40. Well the “I Do Not Like Lynn” site is up and running again. Here is the post I left.

    Cancertooreal 36 seconds ago

    I want to share my reason why I HATE Jill Zarin. Cancer has personally devastated me and my family.My father died of prostate cancer. My uncle is dying of lung cancer. My cousin is dying from Leukemia. My aunt is battling breast cancer. I am going for a biopsy to see if I have uterine cancer. Cancer surrounds me.

    Jill is a woman who has everything but she can’t be happy unless she is destroying others. It sickens me that she tried to play her husbands’ cancer as a weapon to destroy Bethenny. She cheapened her husband’s illness for personal gain.

    I can imagine how scared Bobby must have been when he was diagnosed. But, his fame seeking wife was busy partying with the likes of Jon Gosling and Perez Hilton. Then she used this awful disease as a tool to try to destroy a fellow cast-mates’ reputation and cast her as a cold unfeeling witch. Well we got to see who the real cold and unfeeling witch really was. It’s Jill.

    I’m sorry but for that fact and that fact alone I will never forgive her. Cancer is too real for too many people. I wouldn’t have expected Jill to don sackcloth and ashes while Bobby was going through his illness. But her antics, partying, and using the illness the way she did just sickens me.

    I don’t understand how anyone who has experienced cancer personally or has had a family member suffer from it could treat it so callously. To use it as a weapon to hurt another is unfathomable to me. To use it for personal gain is vile. Cancer is too devastating and hurtful to do that. It diminishes everyone who’s life has been touched or destroyed by cancer.

    What Jill did was evil and I don’t get why people can be so forgiving of her. It is bad enough to harbor jealousy toward another, it quite another thing to use a horrendous disease as a tool to destroy someone. Her remorse and apologies seem fake and ring hollow to me. Now she has turned her attacks onto Alex. There is nothing redeeming about this woman.

    I’m happy that her husband is well. I’m glad she doesn’t know what it is like to see the person you love being eaten alive by the disease.I’m glad she hasn’t had to experience chemo treatments that make you so ill that you vomit so hard that you bring up blood and break the blood vessels surrounding your eyes.I’m glad Jill hasn’t had to be afraid to touch her loved one. Because that one touch causes such excruciating pain that they breakout in a cold sweat and scream from the pain of it. I’m glad Jill hasn’t had to sit by her loved ones side while they are so heavily sedated because that is the only way to help them cope with the pain. I’m glad Jill has never seen the weight and hair lose that accompanies the disease and chemo treatments.I’m glad that Jill hasn’t had to see her loved one hooked to tubes and needles all over their body. Needles to carry nourishment because they can’t tolerate food much less feed themselves.Needles that carry the medicines and pain relievers to their body. Tubes to help them breath and urinate. I’m glad that Jill has never experienced the guilt that comes from praying for your loved ones death. A death that you don’t want because you don’t know how you will cope without them. But a death that will finally end the pain and suffering that your loved one will finally have. I’m glad that Jill has never seen or experienced the one they love transform from a vibrant person to a hollow shell of themselves.

    Jill has many thing she should be glad and thankful for. Her attacks at Bethenny and Alex are petty and vindictive. She says she has changed and she is sorry. Her attacks at Alex shows she hasn’t changed. Her apologies ring false. She uses cancer as a tool and a weapon. What more will this petty,vile woman stoop to to win the sick game she’s playing?

    I do hate Jill Zarin. I was once a fan but she destroyed that. She has a lot to atone for. She can and does throw as much money as she wants towards charity. It is nothing more than free advertising and PR for her. Maybe if she donated her time and actually worked at a hospice or hospital cancer ward she would get it. But knowing her she would show up with cameras and only do it for the PR. Yes I hate Jill. And I LOVE Lynn’s site.

      Wow Shadowsnomore- I feel an overwhelming desire to HUG the hell out of you right now. I’m so sorry that you know this pain, that you have to endure such terrors of seeing loved ones hurting and living day to day knowing someone you love is in pain all the time. You yourself having to go through the anxiety of dealing with the possibility of having this disease.

      I cannot tell you how honored I am that you are here and if the blog and the people here who are posting and supporting you give you even a few seconds of comfort or allow you to escape for just a minute or two, then every second is worth it a million times over!

  47. Sorry for being a downer tonight. I am just so sick of the petty and vicious game Jill and her people play at in the attempt to destroy others. She has SO much but can never be happy. I do hate her!

  48. Need a Hobby says:

    So that one Hub by “Gwen Bridge” gets pulled after a short existence. Now another one appears by “gwen bridge LA” that goes after both Lynn and Alex McCord.

    Gwen seems to have a good memory of Silex’s house redo. Even down to the pillows Jill had Brad provide. Nice touch. Jill would want the pillows acknowledged. And ‘corrects’ J’s statement at the reunion about where the photo was taken. Jill would want that corrected, just to be “factual.” That’s important. And about all the charity Jill does. Can’t leave that out. There’s a familiar voice behind the words, regardless of who is actually composing and posting the prose.


    • Jill is as nuts as Kelly says:


      Jill isn’t stopping with going after Alex, she really wants Simon fired too.


    • CuckooforCocoaPuffs says:

      And one of her first posts is from “”palmer2007” who was harrassing Lynn earlier today and who may or may not be Jill’s nephew….

      Can any of you imagine, in your real life, trying to destroy someone? I have had crazy bosses and crazy employees and crazy co-workers and back-stabbing friends – but to create a vendetta against any one of them??? I just cannot imagine that real people behave that way. JZ has become so obsessed with her own fame that she will stop at nothing to destroy the people that she sees as standing in her way. This isn’t just aberrant behaviour, this is wors- than -Kelly psychosis.

  49. Dani says:

    I love BGM and I hope that it is picked up for next season. Bethenny is so funny and witty. I laughed more watching her last show than I did the whole season of HWONY. I laughed, I cried and I cheered. I am one of her biggest fans and wish her the very best. I just want her and her new little family to stay away from nasty Jill and koo koo kadoo Kelly.

  50. Lurker says:


    I hope you compile a list of the systematic bullying Zarin’s team has launched over the past few days. The “news” story plants, “blogs,” tweet war, reviews of Simon’s book, and all the rest. It would make an important blog.

  52. error 404 says:

    almost made it through the “Behind the Hedges” episode with Sam Talbut, and Kiki was as annoying as ever, but not nearly as crazy as she is now. Sane, just stupid.

    anyway, the Gilles Bensimon stuff is just so friggin weird and creepy, it’s amazing how much he’s just like her…. then it hit me. She’s copying him! It’s all there, just with the added frustration of an incoherent accent.

    In one video, he disarms the model interviewing him by continuously taking flash photos of her while she’s asking the questions, completely flustering her.

    She thanks him for coming to do the shoot and he immediately starts complaining that he didn’t get to see Prague at all and only saw the airport and the photos shoot site.

    When she asks what it was like working with so many beautiful models, he accuses her of fishing for a compliment.

    Then when she thanks him for shooting the calendar, which is for charity, and asks him why he said yes, he rambles on with some cheesy platitude about how if we all each did one small thing the world would be a better place, blah blah blah.. you know, the kind of stuff you read off of a cereal box.

    It’s like this weird Andy Warhol style of PR where you’re purposefully antagonistic toward the press and they’re just suppose to herald you as genius like they did Andy.

  53. Katiecoo says:

    Ok this is weird. I’m rewatching the episode where Ramona freaks out when Simon shows up at Jill’s Girls Night Out night and it is sooo interesting on several fronts. Of course we see Jill up front and center and talking about how she “wanted to crawl under a rock and die” about Ramona’s freakout with the “surprise” and she says “if she couldn’t come, she shouldn’t have come”. Uh HUH, didn’t you tell Ramona you “couldn’t come” to the VI trip? Then, you SHOULDN’T have COME!

    Also very interesting to hear the Countess go on and on about how you are either BORN with class or not.

    Ok so elegance is learned but class you have to be born with?

    • RileyKitty says:

      LOL so writing an etiquette book called Class with the Countess was pretty pointless. I mean if you are either born with it or not then why read a book about it if it can’t be learned? (geez did that even make sense?)

      • Katiecoo says:

        I know…kinda mean to write a book about Class when you believe you can only be born with it? So those of us who weren’t born in to that kind of Royalty get to read all about how we don’t and can never get it? lol

        (I’m not bugged by Luann and I kinda like her again now, it’s just interesting to look back 2 years and see the things that have and have not changed).

        For one, these very emotional sharing scenes between Bethenny and Alex…B really lets her guard down with Alex over and over and wonders why she does. And Alex just ponders that maybe this is the beginning of a deeper friendship (imagine that).

        Jill dresses way more matronly, has simple hair and makeup and talks to her sister about how unpopular she was in childhood. This was back when Jill was more “real”, vulnerable, approachable and likable. I hardly recognize this person…did fame make the monster or just unleash it?

  54. lillybee says:

    I found out where Kelly got the idea for Kellyade. I think that she kinda copied a kocktail from SandaLee Semihomemade. It is called cowboy cocktail. The only difference is that Sandy uses lime juice and mint with the tequila and beer.

  55. anutha hata says:

    Well-one good thing about the hate hater, I finally got to give her a few pieces of my mind.
    I’m patting myself on the back here a little for all of the times that I saw the troll-bait and ignored it for what it is, but now that she posted her insanity over there, I left her a couple messages that I bet she really wants to delete.
    (but that would be hypocrisy according to her, and by her ruling, hypocrisy is a sin!)
    After reading her list of demands/threats to Lynn & Alex, I can see why Lynn banned that lunatic, stalker, spammer, troll, from this board, and I say thank-you, and well-done for that Lynn!

    • Saw your post. Well done! There is one preaching to me that I should not hate Jill just the cancer. They are unreal!

      • anutha hata says:

        Ha ha–all of the loons are gathering there! I have a hard time not responding to trolls, so it is actually kind of nice that they have their own place.
        Maybe they will stop haunting Lynn?
        And yeah I did write another post there even though I said I wouldn’t-yep, couldn’t believe that they can’t get why using someone’s illness is despicable.
        (because that’s what manipulative users do, its in the profile)
        Seriously, every time that I think of Jill using that trick, I think of someone that I know who did that when their spouse was very very sick, and it never fails to disgust me.
        One thing that I love about Bethenny is that she can think on her feet. When she said, “wait a minute-you wanted to make-up in private, but you talk about Bobby’s cancer on tv?”, it clicked for me.
        I hate to say it but I am “surrounded by cancer”, like you are, (not myself as far as I know), and I had to remember your phrase again yesterday when I just heard news about another person who is fighting it.
        Please give cancer a big kick in the ass for me in your fight, and I am praying that you get good news.

  56. I wonder how much money Jill is paying this person? I have noticed her last 2 or 3 blogs have been soooo much more pro Jill than they where before.


    • Anitabee says:

      Someone should tell Danielle Staub. I’m sure she or a male friend can afford some good press on that blog too.

    • anutha hata says:

      Wow-that is a pretty interesting article. I liked it since I like to try & figure out what is fake & what is real.
      I did think the whole story of Alex being the messenger felt forced & phony to me and that was the only Alex scene that I didn’t like, also, when Ramona kept repeating, “Alex is trembling.” on the island, that was overkill, not necessary.
      Really these reality people don’t get paid enough in my opinion. They should probably be getting a writer’s salary also since they are obviously asked to improvise some lines.
      I have a half-finished post somewhere where I wonder if the whole Bethenny vs. Jill is fake, I still wonder about that sometimes.
      Kelly is basically saying that the whole thing is fake. Of course she has a good reason for saying that.
      I don’t know about Seinfeld, but I do know that the whole Larry David Show is improvised with a little bit of set-ups, so you can do a funny/silly show like Bethenny’s without a laugh-track and by improvising, but I think that the Housewives are more reality, with some “scripted reality” a la The Hills, and a lot of manipulating behind the scenes by the producers & editors.

      • I read somewhere recently that Alex and Simon said that for the most part it is reality. But, they are sometimes request to go to places or put themselves in locations to see what the reaction will be. The dialogue is not scripted. The interactions and emotions are not scripted. Just some of the locations and events attended are in a sense “set up”. I don’t think that the fight between Jill and B was fake. I think the way Jill tried to spin it and manipulate it was.

        • anutha hata says:

          I think Ramona was trying to make-up a line when she said, “Alex is trembling.” Not really scripted, but trying a little too hard to improvise, or maybe she just couldn’t think of anything to say.
          I think I can see a lot more reality vs. phony.
          On the re-union, Jill was really trying hard to control her facial expressions (all phony) & I thought her face would almost crack, but when she went after Alex she let her guard down.
          I don’t know if Jill could have thought that her fight with Bethenny was fake, but that scene when Alex tried to give her a clue sure wasn’t fake as far as I could tell.
          And then Jill snickered in Alex’s face when Alex delivered the message.~oh well.
          If I were Jill, I would not be mad at Alex-if anyone besides Jill is to blame, it is Bravo or the producers/editors.
          I think they really did have a better view of what was going on and I also wonder why Jill had to wait to get a Google-Alert to know that Bethenny was expecting, somebody could have let her know, even though Alex tried.
          The whole “Alex hates me”-thing, well, I guess Alex has some pretty good reasons to hate Jill, but that’s Jill’s fault, so to demand that Alex be off the show because Jill thinks that Alex hates her takes a lot of nerve.

          • here's the thing says:

            That was an interesting post. It wasn’t pro-Jill, but brought up valid questions. Why has no one mentioned Alex’s past as a struggling actress or Sonja’s movies or Bethenny’s appearance on Martha Stewart? Reality shows always miss the most interesting parts of the women’s personas.

    • Mondo says:


      Let me make sure I have this right.

      If you agree with the author of a piece, then the author is a speaker of truth, but if you disagree with them, they’re on the Jill Zarin payroll? Cool. Hope her check’s in the mail.

  57. Smompy says:

    I carried this over from the previous blog:

    “Laura says:

    June 19, 2010 at 9:27 pm

    Great blog, Lynn.

    I agree that you have to be a big Bethenny fan to enjoy the show. And being one myself, I really do enjoy it. All her little Bethenny-isms just have me cracking up.”

    I like Bethenny and find her show very funny too, so we’re in total agreement here. I do think if you’re not a fan of Bethenny’s (or at least a potential fan) you probably won’t like her show very much, and let’s face it, there are A LOT of people on the interwebs who are definitely NOT Bethenny fans. Matter of fact, a shockingly large number of people seem to think she’s worse that Hitler. Therefore it’s really no surprise to learn that these types are not enjoying the show, BUT they’re still good news for Bethenny anyway.

    After witnessing the tidal waves of hyperbolic criticism & verbal assaults regarding BGM on sites such as TWoP, freeforums and the like, it’s become apparent to me that these Bethenny-haters are some of her show’s most loyal viewers. I swear they bitch and moan about all the minutia. EVERY. LITTLE. THING. Bethenny does or says during EVERY. SINGLE. SCENE is noted and criticized. It’s as if they’re picking it apart frame by frame. And the only way these people could possibly know about the minutia surrounding every aspect of this show is to closely watch the entire show themseles. Although you may have to be a Bethenny fan to “enjoy” her show, you clearly don’t have to be a Bethenny fan to faithfully watch it week after week. Of course the irony is that by faithfully watching the show in an effort to find things to criticize about Bethenny, all these people just end up improving the show’s overall ratings. And naturally that’s a good thing – both for Bethenny and for Bravo.

    So the obsessive B-hating peeps are dumb as rocks IMHO.

    How come when some bloggers have a problem with the word hate, do all the others gang up on them? I have trouble understanding this. The blogger does not say they have a problem with the opinions or blog content, they just have a problem with the word hate. Why was an intelligent blogger such as the Alexander commenter ganged up on? I read and reread her posts and could not for the life of me figure out what she was saying that was so offensive yet she was called names and humiliated.

      First – Happy Fathers Day!!!

      My two cents – My first reaction when I found the blog was that the name was a bit harsh and I privately twittered Lynn to comment my thoughts (and it was not some long diatribe about the word hate or trying to act all superior – just a simple I like the idea of the blog but the name is a bit harsh.

      HOWEVER – Once I actually took the time to read Lynn’s recaps and the comments made by the REGULAR NORMAL visitors here. I quickly got over myself, saw the tongue & cheek humor of it all (including the name of the blog) and I keep coming back for more, it’s really very hysterical.

      The final thing, it’s getting harder to tell who is really just making a suggestion that is coming from a good place vs. the trolls and PR teams at work. There have been a lot of trolls trying to pull that passive/aggressive BS – like they are going to change opinions and we will see the errors of way for liking Bethenny and not liking Jill or Kelly. I think this site does a pretty good job of calling it like we see it. It’s a shame if a new person with good intentions got caught up in that. But it’s also a shame when a good snark fest gets interrupted with troll nonsense.

    Rusty’s name is dirt on Lynn’s blog.

    He must be the only poster there who has not been blocked but cannot post there out of shame.

    He pulled a JIZM and got snagged big time.

    I don’t know Rusty. Sounds to me like you’re pretty involved. I would like to take you out though. We can have fun talking about the housewives franchise and maybe even dress up like jill and bethenny. What do you think? My treat.

    By the way Rusty. You give me too much credit. I think Cleo is Damien or maybe Damien is just damien or maybe damien is you or maybe….oh, who cares?…oh right…YOU DO!

        This is the only site that I have commented on. I don’t know Lynn, but for some reason I trusted her with my email address which is required in order to post. I do not trust other sites with that information, especially considering rescent events.

        Everyone- if you think you see me posting ANYWHERE else, it is a HOAX.

    Can we talk about healthy women? Kelly seems to want to be the housewife promoting healthy lifestyles for her daughters. Bethenny is all about health. Ramona is 35 yeard old. Alex and Luann were models. Jill is the pudgy one in the center of the photos who shares photos of her empty hashbrown plate on twitter so she’s not a role model for anyone.

    I have been dieting and exercising with the help of professional trainers since Dec. 15, 2009. I think I understand how to eat, what to eat, and how to exercise daily. The new size 8 clothes fit quite well. Would you believe that I am a good 30 lbs heavier than Bethenny and I have the perfect body fat percentage for a 5′ 6″ woman? Honestly, a physcian, a nutritionist with a masters degree, and a certified physical trainer helped me get here and I am staying put. I know I’m not on TV, but 30 lbs difference seems like a lot. How can these women be healthy?

    Kelly eats candy and drinks. She has the occassional pancake and the lettuce was really good. She seems to have zero body fat. That’s not healthy.

    I want to be a good example for my granddaughter, but body fat is a good thing if it’s in the normal range.

    • error 404 says:

      who cares. Anyone who is looking up to a complete stranger on TV for a role model needs help.

      • error 404 says:

        Ok, new rule: no typing before coffee! lol

        Just to clarify, I think it’s great that you are being healthy and are a role model to your family. That is how it should be.

        I’m just so sick of people in general playing the role model card. Celebrity backlash is part of our celebrity obsessed culture. Henry Fonda, Gregory Peck, Irene Dunn.. all great actors who would be absolute shredded, crewed up and spit out in today’s backlash culture.

        Jill has an impressive tenacity. Bethenny and Ramona have drive. Lulu will try anything. Sonja can laugh at herself. Kiki tries to but fails. They all have aspects that are admirable, but no one should worship a stranger they only see one side of on TV. As for the weight issue: eh. I’m more freaked out by the arch-destroying, bunion-producing effects of all those crazy cha-cha heels you guys are always drooling over. Both Jill and B had idiotic chaseme-catchme prozzy shoes on during the reunion. Blech.

        • Quincy IL says:

          Do they wear those shoes in real life or just while sitting. Kathy Griffith had someone bring her a shoe because she probably couldn’t walk in the pair that arrived with her assistant.

          I’ve known women who could only wear heels because their muscles has changed in their legs. Kinda like the Chinese who bound the feet of little girls who were never able to walk normally.

          I’m into comfort… and my feet are happy feet. LOL>

    • RileyKitty says:

      Good for you, Quincy!!!

  68. RileyKitty says:

    Why didn’t anyone bust Kelly on the fact that those pictures in Playboy were not taken when she was 41?

    I have decided that Jill isn’t as complicated as she would like us to believe, she has a million & one excuses for how she behaves (she was having a bad day, etc.) but it can all be filed neatly under JEALOUS.

    • dumberries says:

      I thought someone would bring that up too, especially because Kelly kept emphasizing that it was such an honor to be in Playboy “as a 41 year old woman”. I guess there was just too much other crap to address with her; no way to address all the contradiction in 3 hours of episodes! The best part was when she said she did Playboy to be good role model for her girls, to show them you can still look good enough to pose naked for the world as a 41 year old woman. Poor poor Kelly, so confused.

    • HD says:

      Uhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! I wanted someone to bust her on that too! But I think then Bravo would look super fake since they had that “mock” photo shoot like that was the actua shoot. I sooooooooo wanted them to mention that!

  69. dumberries says:

    Quincy IL,

    Yes, 30 pounds is a lot. Congratulations on losing it the healthy way!

    As for the housewives, Kelly’s not healthy mentally and maybe part of that is because she’s not healthy physically. She’s definitely toned and fit from exercise, but we have no idea what (or how often) she eats and what else she puts in her body- she can’t keep that straight herself from day to day.

    Bethenny looked good and healthy in her bikini on the boat (though she was in early stages of pregnancy). She looked great in Peta shoot before that, but you’re right – no body fat. She looks her best with a little more weight in her face, IMO. She seems to eat regularly based on what we see, but she eats natural healthy foods and minimizes the calories when she splurges.

    I used to think Alex was possibly anorexic because she was so skinny and didn’t look really healthy. I was glad to see that she appeared to have put on some weight in the St. John episodes. It looks good on her – she looks healthier than ever.

    LuAnn and Ramona actually look the healthiest. Good curves, some body fat, but really really toned. Their faces also don’t look drawnfrom hunger! They look like they watch what they eat, but mostly focus on exercising. They are both very toned. Ramona looks amazing for 54. Bet, she works out hard! It takes a lot to burn empty Pinot calories.

    Sonja, well I’m sure she eats and drinks what she enjoys and exercises as much as she likes – trying to keep it all in moderation. Then, she just gets a nip or tuck if she thinks it’s needed. She looks healthy and part of that is probably her fun attitude towards life and all the sex!

    Jill Zarin: A PR Nightmare


  72. RileyKitty says:

    I am dying to know what we didn’t see during the 3 part reunion. We roughly saw 2 hours & 15 min (after you take out commercials). They filmed for over 7 hours (per Andy) & I want to know if some of the things we are still wanting to know were actually addressed but we didn’t see it. Some of it may be covered on the lost footage episode.

    I also wish Andy had stopped Kelly when she kept stating she was forced to go by Bravo (his pathetic “that’s not true” 3x wasn’t good enough) & said something like, you can spin this anyway you want to BUT you were absolutely not forced to go on that trip no matter what you keep nattering on & on about it. I just think maybe Andy isn’t forceful enough to do the hosting.

    • Squirrels says:

      Andy either didn’t want to rock the boat or is intimidated by irrational women. Hmmm, which could it be?

      • RileyKitty says:

        Both? LOL The boat needs to be rocked, especially during the reunion. He can save that passive soft toss shit for WWHL but when it is game time I expect him to go in there & throw his 90 mile/hr fast ball & take no prisoners

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        IMO Andy did not seem in controll of the reunion show this year. He didn’t get to ask most of the questions on his cards. He also didn’t want the BRAS to talk about the vacation even though he said they would get their turn. And he never allowed Alex adequate airtime to defend herself from Jill’s continuous attacks! He mentioned in one of his blogs that the housewives pretty much ran the show.

        • error 404 says:


          He definitely took the stance of giving Kiki enough rope to hang herself, which she did.

          He had a valid point that interrupting her stupid rehearsed PR speech did make them seem like the bullies she claims they are. He was smart to shut them down IMO. They came off better and she was exposed as her looney-tunes self.

          They all kinda agreed that after hearing Kelly’s insane ramblings, that it was just too disturbing to continue. Do you really try to reason with the crazy homeless guy screaming outside the bus station? No.

          What’s the point. We all know she’s lying and needs help. Every single article publish about the show calls her stupid, mean and crazy. She’s got exactly 0 supportive press, and she’s well connected.

    • error 404 says:

      Andy wants the show to be a success, and that requires people not being totally turned off by the housewives. He’s not David Frost, hammering them with the hard questions. The reunion has 2 purposes: to make us watch Bravo a few more nights, and to give the women a chance to spin their bad behavior a bit so fewer people turn away form the show. Andy has absolutely nothing to gain by exposing Kiki as a pathological liar. I’m 100% certain that her answers got her fired, so what’s the point in nailing her to the wall in the process.

      • RileyKitty says:

        I see your point. I just think since we already know Kelly is a liar it would be more satisfying to have it proven. I just woke up a bit aggressive today. LOL maybe I shouldn’t rant when I am like this 🙂

      My favorite, from the article itself, not a comment:

      10. “I Don’t Know If I Could Do This Again”

      That’s cute, Jill Zarin. We all know there’s no prison secure enough, no military force mighty enough on the entire planet to keep you away from this show.

  74. dumberries says:

    I agree with RileyKitty that Jill isn’t so complicated; every thing she does in motivated by one thing: jealousy. That’s all there is to it and she cannot get it under control.

    I think it’s the same for Kelly when it comes to Bethenny. Kelly used to think she was superior to Bethenny. They were both single, Kelly had more money, and Kelly had children. Now, Bethenny is married and Kelly is still single. Bethenny’s net worth is right up near Kelly’s (and Bethenny earned her money. Bethenny has her baby girl. Bethenny took it one step further and even got her own show. Even Kelly’s irrational logic probably won’t allow her to believe she’s “up there” any longer. Add Jill’s mind control exercises with Kelly, and you have very strong obsessive jealousy towards Bethenny. Early in the season, Kelly seemed to be trying to get on “civil acquaintance” status with Bethenny. As soon as Bethenny’s engagement and pregnancy were announced, all of that changed and Jill exploited the situation to strengthen her team (which backfired). Kelly can’t even stand it when someone says something nice about Bethenny in her presence and has been reduced to trying to make her self feel better by questioning Bethenny’s culinary credentials and accusing her of a smear campaign, over and over and over.

    • RileyKitty says:

      I don’t understand a woman at Jill’s age being JEALOUS especially when she really had a lot going for her. She has a beautiful daughter, that she seems to get along with (anyone with teens know that is a feat itself), her husband seems to love her, she has a nice (although tacky in decor) home & before she started getting made to look like Tammy Faye (RIP) she wasn’t the ugliest woman on the planet.

      I get a brief stab of envy when my BFF gets a new car or something but to have all consuming jealousy where you want to destroy someone’s reputation is crazy. Then to drag a half-wit into your jealous campaign is even worse

      • desertgal66 says:

        There’s a difference between envy and jealousy, though. Envy is wanting something equal to what someone else has, without the desire to take anything away from them. I can envy my friend’s Jeep, for example, and want one like it, but that doesn’t mean I want to take hers away.

        Jealousy, though, is not wanting someone to have whatever it is they have that you want for yourself. That’s like stealing my friend’s Jeep because I want it and I think I deserve it and she doesn’t.

        Jealousy is destructive. Envy is not. We all envy, but we all don’t give in to jealousy.

    • error 404 says:

      If Jill is about one thing, it’s control. CONTROL. She has nothing to be jealous of. This is all about smacking down errant children. Bethenny was fine as long as she did as she was told. Alex was fine as long as she did as she was told. This is Jill’s show. She’s not just the boss, but she’s a surrogate Mom to these young women. And the way they turned on her! The things they said! Joan Crawford herself never had such ungrateful daughters! Nobody makes a fool out of Mommy!

      • Quincy IL says:

        I had recorded some of the earlier shows that played this week. Jill was so angry that Ramona had a cooking party and did not invite her to join when Luann was invited. That anger carried over into the tennis match. It seemed unreasonable to me. I have friends that have small events and I sometimes don’t get invited. I may be sad, but I never feel anger towards the person having the get together. You can’t have everyone all of the time.

    • error 404 says:

      B and Kiki are the same.

      Remember B’s famous “FU, because the lunatic is out!” rant to ALex and Ramona? LOL

      Well, Kiki’s day has yet to come. Only Kiki can see B for the inferior person she is, and it’s driving her insane that no one else can see it. It’s like Kiki has special glasses that can see B for the phony she is. Each and everyone of Kiki’s confessional exposes B for the horrible human being she is, but only Kiki can see it. Every time B ends up in a magazine or is on TV, it’s crazy because why can’t everyone else see B as Kiki see’s her. Finally Jill sees it. Lulu saw it for a minute, but then got sucked back in.

      • kats2 says:

        Wait a minute, are you saying that what Kelly is saying about Bethenny is true?

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          It a case of just because you say it, it doesn’t make it true (except in Kelly’s mind).

        • error 404 says:

          no. not in my opinion.

          but I think it’s obvious. B looks at Kelly and sees an awful person. Kelly looks at B and sees an awful person. The only difference is that we currently all see what B’s seeing.

  75. WindyCityWondering says:

    Do you think fans were left with so many unanswered questions from the reunion show so that they would turn in next season? And instead of asking who should not come back (as he did in Season2) he asked who would want to come back to set the stage for no changes to the line up going into Season 4???

  76. Squirrels says:

    I would be interested in the conversation back stage to keep or dump Kelly. They have enough cause to do it, but what would their spin be? Let Kelly resign, giving her “I walk outside and it’s sunny” platform more awareness and hoping she fades away? Or outright not invite her back, aka fire her ass, and hope she fades away after spitting flames at Bravo, Andy, cast mates, and the whole gig.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Bravo will likely walk a very fine line with what to do with Kelly. Clearly, she has demonstrated that she add nothing but discomfort and distruption to the show. Other cast members do not want to film with her and she doesn’t carry a scene by herself and her talking head segments are not focused either. She has caused major problems, has been escorted off the island and continues to say she was forced to go in the first place (calling your boss a liar not once but numerous times is insubordination)….. Hopefully, Bravo is monitoring various blogs/website/reviews and can clearly interpret what fans are saying – get her off the show! And I really don’t care how she would spin her dismissal!!!!

  77. iceNfire says:

    It amazes me that people like Gwen & Cleo’smommy and sites like perez hilton and the “journalists” who are clearly in Jill’s camp don’t realize that they are allowing themselves to be made fools of.

    Amazon is definitely the “Big Dog” in all of this. I have no idea how many reviewers they actually have but a search of their top book reviewers brought up over 1,000 names with 750 discussions going on among them. Add to that the fact that books are not the only things being sold/ reviewed on Amazon and that’s a very sizable community over there.

    My best to A. Chandler and all her quiet supporters.

    • corona n lime says:

      As always, you are so right on ice.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Are you surprised that an opposing view of Jill is not taken? Where there is drama there is support! Gotta have two sides to make it interesting – who is to say this interest doesn’t have the motive of revealing even more vile, newsworthy behavior? Jill may very well think she has good intentions – the disconnect comes with her actions and words – which is funny in a weirdly entertaining way.

      • iceNfire says:

        No I’m not surprised that an opposing view of Jill is not turning Amazon, as a whole, into a circus. If you go back to comment #1
        on A. Chandlers review ( reading thru it all is a major task but very interesting ) and also look at the early discussions held by Amazons reviewers, it’s clear that they support A. Chandler but choose to stay out of the frenzy.

    • RileyKitty says:

      I think we have all seen it now. I laugh at it. Most of them are obsessed with this blog, criticizing Lynn (& by extention us) yet they are doing the same thing only they aren’t focused on Jill (a public person) but Lynn (a regular citizen). When Gwen was called on that fact then the blog went down & came back up to include Alex (public person).

      It just seem to be some disgruntled trolls who Lynn wouldn’t let pee in our sandbox, so they found their own sandbox to stink up.

  80. desertgal66 says:

    Well, in regards to the Kelly/Playboy issue, I definitely do think that Kelly was promoting healthy living-or, well, attempting to, in her batty fashion-and that’s not a bad thing. At all.

    My objection is that Kelly goes about it entirely the wrong way. For one thing, she can’t act as an advocate for healthy living while she is sucking down alcohol, drugs, and junk food. That doesn’t fly at all.

    As well, Kelly is pushing the wrong body image. She talks about how she wants her daughters to grow as women not concerned with being too skinny or too fat-but look at her own body. She has zero body fat, and she clearly over exercises, to the point that she has the body and overtoned muscles of a linebacker. She’s had a boob job-not a very good one, but still cosmetic surgery. She uses some kind of false tanner-it looks like self tanner, because it’s so orange. I’m not really up on tanners, so I don’t know what the specific kinds are, but the orange tint tells us it’s definitely not all real. Her hair is professionally streaked-my guess is the real color is a mousy brown.

    So, the REAL image that she’s presenting to her daughters isn’t about healthy living…it’s more “You can look good enough to appear in Playboy at 41 IF you exercise yourself down to rail thinness, use cosmetic surgery and cosmetic enhancements to correct your flaws…and make sure that your dad takes the actual photos in your 20’s so you can pretend you have the same body at 41.”

    And my attitude is, it’s fine if women want to do things that enhance their physical attributes-but since Kelly did, she should OWN it. She needs to stop pretending that her body came to look the way it does naturally, because it didn’t. And she shouldn’t preach that women need to stop being overly conscious of body image, when she herself clearly IS.

    The difference between LuAnn, Ramona and Kelly is striking to me. Ramona, at more than ten years older than Kelly, has a comparable figure – but it’s pretty clear that Ramona follows a higher standard of healthy living than Kelly does. Her body is toned, but not overly so. There is a softness to Ramona’s figure, in comparison with Kelly’s, that looks far more feminine and appealing. Ramona looks good, and, more significantly, she looks comfortable in and with herself. She clearly exercises and diets wisely, as opposed to Kelly’s obvious practice of overdoing one to compensate for being lax about the other, and using drugs to maintain her low weight. LuAnn, very much the same as Ramona-fit and comfortable.

    As irritating as I find her intentional ignorance, Kelly is just sad to me. The whole package, just sad. She’s not smart-she can barely string two words together. She’s not kind. She clearly has body image issues. She’s not productive in any meaningful way, as far as career or, really, charities, despite all her babble about being charitable. She tries to copy smart, dynamic women like Bethenny, Alex, and Ramona, and fails miserably. It’s just very sad.

      one thing I love about the Bensimon kids and their barely contained rage toward their mom, is how often they will humiliate her.

      Kiki tries, but in a fame whore kind of way. She had Sam Talbot on “Behind the Hedges” to teach her and the kids about healthy eating. Her ref was full of crap. In an effort to divert attention, she suddenly just goes off on margerine and all these people who are supposedly telling her to use it. Sea then quietly takes a “I can’t believe it’s not butter” jar out of the ref and hands it to Sam on camera and she’s busted! LOL

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Kelly has a model’s body – it looks out of place next to the women on the show! Kelly is uncomfortable around them because superficially she looks out of place, but what make the other’s uncomfortable is her lack of maturity, censorship and inability to relate to them, carry on a conversation with them or establish any platform for friendship.

      • error 404 says:

        Lulu, Alex, Ramona and Sonja all have modeled to some extent. What separated Kiki is her androgeny. Even if you look at her book from the 80s, she’s all gay boy looking with cropped hair and high cheeks. A few dred locks away from Boy George. After the 80s, her career dried up. Also she’s a swimmer. She reminds me of Ester Williams. Pretty, but difficult to cast with leading men because she’s 100′ tall with the world largest shoulders from all the swimming.

      the main thing that bugs me about the playboy lie is that it’s stupid. When Joan Collins appeared on the cover back in the 80s, THAT was a triumph for older women, cougars so to speak.

  81. kats2 says:

    I’m afraid Bravo/Andy will bring Kelly and Jill back for ratings, pick up where it left off. I just don’t see Bravo/Andy taking the high road at all (They have not in the past why would they start now?) They have now become the network that gives horrible people a platform to promote and spew their garbage. They don’t pay theses women a lot and they obviously don’t think we are intelligent or desire more.

      after season 2, I would agree, but now they have gotten so much criticism for it, they may cut back. People are really furious over the White House crashers.

      anyway, Kelly’s clearly insane, so if they do invite her back, they deserve everything they get. Which is a shame considering Top Chef, Work of Art, etc.. are all high quality Reality TV shows. 5 minutes of the Hills or High Society and you know Bravo is in a class of their own.

      Hopefully it will, because OC, Atlanta and NJ seemed to have limited appeal both in housewives selection and their lives in general! Did you catch the aftershow with Kathy? Seems Bravo isn’t going to go abroad, but may go to smaller markets in the USA….

    • Katiecoo says:

      Ohyeah I think this group might be the most interesting/fun to watch yet! I’m in!

  83. WindyCityWondering says:

    Do you think Jill will maintain a friendship with Kelly over the summer? It seemed to me Jill had no control over Kelly at the reunion and when she defended Kelly she was rebuffed. Then when Jill defended Kelly in Playboy while bashing Alex over pictures that were never intended for public consumption – Jill realized Kelly can’t follow strategies or help her look better.

    • dumberries says:

      She will put up the appearance of being friends with Kelly (if Kelly is coming back to the show). Her PR consultants and her own thought process will make sure of it. She cannot appear to dump another “good friend” at this point and still try to win back her fan base. Her actions will be motivated by how she thinks she looks to others. Zarin probably knows she looks bad for defending Kelly, but she would look worse to dump another proclaimed friendship when that’s what started her troubles in the first place. Kelly has no clue that Jill isn’t really her friend now – she wouldn’t know the difference if Jill just continues to put up a front. But, if Bravo dumps Kelly, I think Zarin will start detaching immediately.

  84. Kelly Jelly Beansomeone says:

    I’m about over this show and just wrote a new blog about it. Let me know your thoughts!

  88. Jenni says:

    I just want to apologize to those who found the last banner unpleasant. My fault, not Lynn’s. Just a short explanation to hopefully make you feel better about it.

    In yesterday’s comments, there was a mention of the call out to Lynn in the latest TVgasm blog. I went over there to read, and saw the “chipmunk” face that they had of Bethenny. (Love chipmunks, they are so cute!) Anyway, I thought the image was fabulous: cute, expressive, honest, informative, so what I love about Bethenny. But I wanted to see the clip, to find out if I could capture the same image.

    Anyway, after examining the clip more closely, I discovered that at the Jill and Bethenny lunch meeting, Bethenny said something about Jill having a lot of issues with a lot of people right now. That’s when Jill produces whale sized tears and ducks behind her napkin. I am thinking, “Wow, she is actually having remorse! She is really examining some of her actions!” But no, oh no no no no! I am wrong once again. When “poor Jill” emerges from her safety blanket, she opens her mouth and blows my fantasy out of the universe. She is actually crying because she HAS to get all these toxic people out of her life!

    At that moment I thought that the words and face of Bethenny that follow are once again the “Greek chorus” for what I was I was thinking and feeling, and expressed my thoughts SO much better than I could ever do myself. I thought the whole segment was a powerful statement of why Jill Zarin is worthy of hatred, and a fitting banner for this blog. I really am sorry that I did such a poor job of getting the point across. I will try to do better job in the future and take into account that folks are not mind readers, and what could be interpreted as unflattering pictures of people we like can be very upsetting.

    Sorry I was so off on that banner!

    • iceNfire says:

      Jill’s face is basically plain and she could do herself a huge favor by keeping her plain face calm, because anger turns this plain Jane into something very ugly.
      Any angry pictures?

      • lillybee says:

        You are right, Jill’s expressions are nasty.

      • Quincy IL says:

        Jill looks like Barbra Streisand to me. Jill looks great in some photos, but on the show the camera often catches her at angle that show her profile which is not as good as straight on…

        I don’t know why Jill thinks that she is beautiful? I don’t see it.

        • kats2 says:

          Oh lord please be careful not to repeat this around Jill, she might think she can sing!

        • desertgal66 says:

          That’s funny, because I kept thinking, every time Jen Gilbert appeared, that she looks like Streisand. But, then, Jen and Jill do not look that much different, if you compare their facial features. Except that Jen has more of the Streisand nose.

          (Sorry, Barbra.)

        • MNSUE says:

          I have always thought Sonja looks like Barbara Streisand and I mean that as a compliment to both of them. I think they are both beautiful.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Jenni – got the toxicity thread as it did make the rounds this season.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      I totally “got” the meaning of the banner, I guess it just doesn’t translate well in photos as it does in live action. LOL

      Thanks as always for the work you put into that banner. I still have it saved, along with all of the others and will keep switching around to keep it as fresh as possible.

      Its tough to find a photo that works with the long format of the header, so I appreciate what you do!!!!

      Thanks again! Lynn :)xo

    Question-Can Simon get in trouble for taking those nude photos of Alex in the hotel that he manages for instance, if he took them while he was not a guest there or something? Honestly, I like Simon and Alex but that was not a smart move if they did take those photos in the hotel where he works. Most companies have a clause in their hiring like you can’t do anything damaging (for lack of a better word) in regards to the company or in your private life. Do you think he will get in trouble? Maybe that is why Jill felt the need to toss that out there.

    • Katiecoo says:

      Oh I’m sure he could get in trouble for doing something like that if a. it was true and b. he had bosses who would consider the behavior outweighs the publicity they got out of it (I googled that hotel). IF there were nude photos of Alex in a hallway, I’m guessing it was a hallway inside a room in a hotel room, Simon’s or not. But I believe Alex in her denial that this is even true (God knows we’ve seen Jill caught in lies over and over again this season).

      • HD says:

        Thanks Katiecoo. I missed Alex denying that the pictures were taken in his hotel. Good. Jill is a liar. I just thought Alex didn’t deny it. I believe what Alex says of course.

        • Free Ginger (formerly known as wolverinedg) says:

          I thought she was denying they were “spread eagle” pics taken in the hotel lobby. Either way, I’m not curious enough to go find the pics on the net & don’t see how they are relevant to anything. Alex has never portrayed herself as being morally superior to everyone else & is not running for public office, so really, who fucking cares about these nekkid photos, other than Jill & Luann are incredibly hypocritical for praising Kelly but bashing Alex.

      • desertgal66 says:

        I absolutely believe Alex’s denial.

        Think about it. There was natural daylight in the pictures of Alex. Does anyone really think that Simon blocked off a hallway during a busy day in a hotel full of guests, staff, and other assorted passerby to allow his wife and a cameraman to take naked, “spread eagled” pictures, with all the assorted lights, cameras, backdrops, and other paraphernalia scattered around? In full view of those same guests, staff, and other assorted passerby? Especially when said hallway would be easily identifiable in the pictures that could easily get him in hot water with his employers?

        No freaking way.

        • Katiecoo says:

          Here is an excerpt from Alex’s blog on this:

          Because Jill was angry with me, when the subject of nude photos and hypocrisy came up, she started shouting that I had “spread eagle pictures in the hallway of my husband’s hotel.” Number one, that is not true and she knows it. Number two, she chose her words specifically to cause trouble for Simon, because perhaps someone out there would wonder whether it was true and ask his business associates about it. For the record, my photos were personal ones, not meant for publication, that got out. Jill doesn’t care about who is or isn’t nude – she even has her own vault, as mentioned to Mark Malkin here. In case you don’t want to take the link – here’s her sendoff quote – “She added, ‘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.'”

          I don’t remember what Alex said when Jill sputtered this out on the Reunion but it was part of her artillery like “we were never friends! no big deal!” which she hopes disarms people (Alex). But A just rolled with it. For one reason I think, she really doesn’t give a rat’s ass about Zarin anymore, personally. Other than busting her wide open on TV and on her blog. Exposing her but it’s clear she can’t hit Alex anywhere where it will hurt. i did not even see one hive on her when JZ was on her various sneak attacks.

      • Quincy IL says:

        How would anyone know what hallway a photo was taken? I don’t think Alex would pose like that anyway. Surely, this was a made up story by Jill.

        • desertgal66 says:

          Well, it depends on how much of the hallway appears in the picture, of course…but I would think, if, say, I was looking at my husband in a picture of our hallway, even if only a small portion of the hall was showing, I would be able to recognize where he was by familiar details like wall color, moldings, flooring, etc.

          So, if Alex did take pictures in a hallway of Simon’s hotel, and enough details were in the photos, then his employers and staff would recognize them. Which is even more reason why neither Simon nor Alex would take the risk.

          Employees talk. Nothing is secret in a work environment. It’s impossible that Alex and Simon could pull that off without word leaking out to the powers that be.

          Jill is an idiot.

          • Squirrels says:

            Lots of rooms have hallways within. Jill made it sound like a f*** fest ensued in the grand ballroom.

        • Jen says:

          Can’t remember where I read it (in a blog/review this week) and I have not seen the pictures but the blog/review said the picture in question is in the shower and Alex is standing with her legs apart. Obviously, Jill liked the shock factor that ‘spread eagle’ might evoke but she I and don’t have the same definition.

  90. Katiecoo says:

    Ya know one of many things that bugs me is the ASSumption that Jill would have had to attack Alex directly over and over again to inspire Alex’s disgust with her (which of course we know she HAS but her denial of it seems to be at the heart of her attempts to destroy Alex).

    Know what? I am a fiercely loyal friend and if another person spent so much time attempting to “systematically destroy” another friend of mine, as Jill so openly did (openly amongst the housewives) to Bethenny and her new show/her life/relationships/livelihood I would TURN ON HER TOO. And confront the crap out of her just over that behavior! Done! Even if she never did a dang thing directly at or about me…I’d still “cut her out like a cancer” for the behavior she’d been doing to my friend! And given the opportunity, let her know why!

    If Alex was ONLY upset at Jill for the ways she’s “sabotaged” Bethenny (esp in Bethenny’s various times of need) over the last season while showing a two faced smile in order to garner favor which we all saw and of course Alex sees it too, THAT IS ENOUGH for her to confront Jill as she has.

    Ok, rant over!

  91. emt2 says:

    Kelly is jealous of Bethenny because she thinks that Bethenny is beneath her. Last year, Kelly gave an interview to Harper’s Bazaar and said that Bethenny wasn’t worth remembering because she “didn’t make an impact” and that all she does is cry. Meanwhile, none of Kelly’s projects (jewelry, books, Behind the Hedges) have made an impact and all she did was cry when Bethenny gave her a SkinnyGirl tote bag.

    Kelly is obsessed with calling Bethenny a cook and not a chef because last year Bethenny said that Kelly wasn’t a real journalist because she wrote a stupid column for a now defunct Page Six Magazine. I wish that Bethenny had brought up this fact during the reunion because that is obviously what Kelly is really upset about.

    Here is an excerpt from Kelly’s article in Harper’s Bazaar:


    There is no joy in Type-A-ville: Bethenny traces her dislike of Kelly to a party where she claims Kelly flirted with her then-boyfriend. This is news to Kelly, who explains from the Barbie couch that Bethenny just “didn’t make an impact. I don’t know who she is and I don’t care. And am I going to hire her as a chef? No. She’s not good!” Still, graciously, after Bethenny accuses her of looking past her at a party (a tendency documented by the cameras) — and Kelly takes her aside to bluntly explain the I’m-up-here-you’re-down-there hierarchy of the jungle — she plugs Bethenny’s chef services in her newspaper column. By the end of the season, “she made up with me,” says Kelly.

    “There’s an inauthenticity to Kelly that I just instinctively sense,” Bethenny remarks in an early episode. “Is Bethenny a socialite?” asks Kelly now. “No. Will she ever sit next to Lauren duPont? No. Is she best friends with Aerin Lauder? No. Am I? No. Do I care? No. Does she? Oh, absolutely. She’s not authentic. All she does is sit there and cry all the time. I’m like, you’re crying about guys? And shut up. Honestly, if being inauthentic means graduating from Columbia University, writing three books, starting two magazines, bearing two children [daughters Sea, 10, and Teddy, 8], being the ambassador for wool, running a marathon for charity — if that’s inauthentic? Tell me what authentic is.”

    I thought that it was strange that no one brought up the fact that Jill emailed Kelly with a veiled threat if she continued her truce with Bethenny. That was really the best and most clear example of Jill’s manipulation and would explain how Jill’s influence may have contributed to Kelly’s breakdown in St. John’s.

    My last comment is that I think we should stop talking about Kelly. She is getting way too much attention. She has gained over 11,000 twitter followers in the past few weeks and she thinks that bad press is good press. I say, we just stop talking about her, so that she just goes away quietly.

    • error 404 says:

      the smartest thing Bethenny ever said was that we the audience are judging them, and B is winning her case.

      It’s true, when B said Kelly isn’t a real journalist, we said “tell me about it!” but when kelly said B wasn’t a real chef we, and all the other housewives, said “Oh no you idiot, she is!” .

      I can follow Kelly’s twisted logic, even if I don’t agree. Bethenny said she wasn’t a real writer, then her writing work dried up. Since Kiki is never going to admit the possibility of her not being good at something, it must be B’s influence that lost her her writing jobs.

      Kiki could discredit B, only n one pays her any attention, and no ones listens when she speaks.

      • emt2 says:

        Kelly’s writing gigs didn’t dry up because of B’s influence. Page Six Magazine folded. Kelly still wrote articles for other magazines, including the one that hosted the party for her during this season.

        I read a few of Kelly’s Page Six columns and they were poorly written and no matter what the subject matter, Kelly gloated about her own self-importance. She met Bill Clinton and wrote about him flirting with her. She wrote about how men always compliment her and that’s why she trusts their opinion. (?) I mean, the column illustrated her narcissism. It was awful.

        Kelly’s modeling career dried up because of the domestic abuse charges. She had been the face of Sak’s and they canceled their contract with her. Her jewelry line suffered because of lawsuits brought against her for stealing designs and concepts.
        Her Behind the Hedges internet show was canceled because no one watched it. She had a consultant gig with J Crew and they stepped away from her.

        Nothing she has done has really made an impact and it’s not because B discredited her, it’s because she is not very talented and comes across as inauthentic and glib. She thinks that people are obsessed with her and that people are crazy about her, when in actuality, people laugh at her and think she is dumb.

        Is she pretty? Not really, not when she contorts her face into something vile and nasty. She looks she she was rode hard and put away wet. At best, she’s a poor man’s Elle McPhearson, as someone pointed out. I like to compare her to Iggy Pop. They have very similar skin (reminiscent of a greasy and leathery rotisserie chicken), body shape (sagging skin, no body fat, veiny arms and very aggressive stomach muscles), and greasy, limp hair.

        Is she intelligent? Not really. She thinks it’s cute to use for when she should really use because: “The other women hate me for they are jealous.” She sounds like an idiot and her continued reference to her Ivy League education, furthers her appearance as a phony. At the very least, graduates from an Ivy League would know when and how to use “for” and “because.”

        I kinda feel bad for her at times because she does try to do things but nothing ever really pans out. Remember the pilot she show with Matthew Broderick? It didn’t get picked up. But, then I think about her extreme narcissism and entitlement and conclude that she doesn’t deserve to catch a break until she practices more humility.

        She was a great sport at Brooklyn Fashion week and didn’t complain and seemed very genuine. Why couldn’t she have been like this during the entire season? (The only time she was annoying at the fashion show was that business about PR 101 and that was only because Jill was the one winding Kelly up about continuing her feud with B.)

        • desertgal66 says:

          It’s not just that she needs more humility. She also doesn’t seem willing to actually put in the work to succeed.

          I’m a journalism graduate, so I know the field pretty well. To succeed as a journalist, you have to WORK. You have to be willing to take every shit assignment, work all hours of the day and night, deal with nasty editors and slow researchers, sift through faulty second hand information, cope with office politics, wrassle balky interviewees, chase down sources, and so on and so forth. Most of all, you’ve got to be willing to accept criticism, constructive and otherwise, and constantly, endlessly, hone your writing skills.

          Kelly has no experience as a true journalist, and she isn’t willing to do the work to get it. A gossip column is crap journalism. She just wants to stick that journalist label on her resume.

          Same with “spokesperson”. It’s glam work, but it’s still work. You’ve got to be willing to shake hands, attend boring meetings, relay some feedback about the product, and push push push whatever product you’re representing at every opportunity. When the company says jump, you jump. It’s not just a couple of glamor shots in a magazine. And you’ve got to keep your nose clean, which Kelly certainly isn’t accomplishing. First, there was the assault charge, and now she’s revealed her particular brand stupid crazy to most of America. Who wants an inane, insane loon for a spokesperson?

          Same with “equestrian”. Same with “editor”. Same with “wife”.

          And “author”. She’s put together a couple of coffee table books of stock photographs and captions-and it is debatable whether she actually wrote the captions. Well, hell, anyone can put together a bunch of stock photos to represent a subject. It’s not rocket science, and none of her subjects could be called groundbreaking. Again, it’s crap journalism.

          This is another reason why Kelly is intimidated by Ramona, Alex, and, especially, Bethenny. Bethenny wipes the floor with Kelly, really. They are the same approximate age, yet Bethenny’s achievements far outshine Kelly’s because B. has always been willing to actually put in the hours to achieve something real, not just a label. And Kelly hates her for it.

          I don’t feel sorry for Kelly at all. You reap what you sow in life. You don’t reach the true heights of achievement when you aren’t willing to work and sacrifice to get there.

    Where was Bobby during Jill’s skating party.

    • boston02127 says:

      @lillybee~~and why is Bobby always on the phone?

      • boston02127 says:

        found one:

      • Katiecoo says:

        Especially in the first season, taking calls, texting, on the laptop. Escaping. This behavior is at HOME, at a weight loss center, on camera. He seems to not be able to take a break from his “business” for a 30 second shot to even give an appearance he is interested in his family…rather his wife and her daughter.

        I’m telling you, I was neutral on Bobby (although I think his denials of his wife’s obvious bizarre behavior is not “endearing” to me, it’s enabling) until my tivo picked up some episodes I never saw from Season 1. Like when Jill is trying to force some love and concern from him for her daughter AFTER SEVEN YEARS and he still treated Ally like a nuisance and worse than that, a stranger. In their own home. Jill instructing Ally to ask him to look at the new clothes she just bought (well he just bought for her…anyway what man other than Simon would care about a teenager’s clothes shopping?), he puts her off for a minute or so so he can finish his *whatever* on the laptop, then with a sigh (you can almost read the bubble over his head saying “ok let me go get this over with”) he heads over to Ally’s room. In another scene, Jill pushes A to go thank him for sending her to the “detox center” and she does, he gives her this very awkward hug and then INSTANTLY turns his focus to a tiny little blond girl standing next to Ally saying something like “isn’t she cute?”.

        My attitude changed about him after watching that episode and it answered alot of questions about his denial of Jill’s nasty behavior we’ve seen here 2 years later (to me).

      • HD says:

        And why is Bobby always “lost” at parties where Jill has to “find” Bobby?

        • Katiecoo says:

          I’m not going to make accusations but simply make one observation coming from my friend who I watch the show with (who happens to be a lesbian and she has a sometimes more objective take on men’s behavior–than me I mean). She saw all this detached behavior from Bobby–the texting, the calling, the laptop, the disappearing–and said “he’s got someone on the side”. I had never considered that but I thought her impression was interesting nonetheless.

          • error 404 says:

            The Count was no where to be found for most the first 2 seasons. Kiki admitted at the spa that she spent most of her marriage alone. Ramona wasn’t the only one who freaked out about Simon coming to dinner, she was just the loudest. Everyone, including Bethenny thought it was weird to bring your husband to a dinner party. Was there a stripper? Were they going to Chipandales for a bridal shower? WTF? It was a dinner party, not group therapy.

            • Katiecoo says:

              LOL…yes each person has a different
              “investment” in their husband or sig other being on the show. Jason part 1 seemed very uncomfortable being on the show (and apparently got fired for it!). I saw that episode too in my little season 1 marathon and Ramona’s reaction was extreme, yet they did “sell” that whole evening as “girls night out” so Ramona was expecting girl talk. She just didn’t realize Simon is in with the girltalk as much or more as any of the women! lol

              • error 404 says:

                Jill was most at fault. Alex didn’t just show up with Simon, she called Jill to ask if he could come. Jill told B and B said “no” but Jill said “OK” anyway, even though she snarked to the camera that it was wrong. If she had just explained to Alex that it was strictly girl’s only, the whole issue would have been avoided.

                Ramona was right, as usual. The whole dynamic changed and Simon dominated the evening, and the other women didn’t get to learn much about heir new friend Alex at all… well, except that her husband is the “peacock” as Jill puts it.

                Anyway, between Jill’s bad hostessing, Alex’s clueless request, and Ramona’s OTT reaction, it’s hard not to suspect they all create drama for the sake of getting noticed and kept on the show.

                • LynnNChicago says:

                  Alex was asked about this evening a few times when she was here in Chicago. The way that she explained it was that because it was the first season, the producers were finding ways to get all the women together. This dinner party was set up by Bravo, not by Bethenny and Jill. Alex was told to ask if it was alright if Simon came along and she just followed along with the plan.

                  The only one who wasn’t told in advance that Simon was coming was Ramona, and that was by design, the producers wanted her “real” reaction to Simon showing up and according to Alex, they got more than they bargained for.

                  The entire evening was planned by Bravo other than Ramona storming out, that they did not expect. 🙂

              It’s one of the first, obvious warning signs of an affair. It’s odd how much Bobby does of this ON CAMERA when his scenes are so tiny anyway, during the first season.

            agreed! I’ve been thinking he is doing something on the side plus Jill is always calling for him (wondering if she is getting that vibe too).

              The housewives in general tend to have a much for liberal view of marriage and sex than the average viewer. Maybe it’s a regional thing.

              When Bobby confessed to having a vintage Playboy collection, only Kiki took a 19th century puritan view of it being “dirty”. Lulu while expression said “of course you do” and his wife hysterically pointed out that if it’s kept in his mother’s basement, it might not be in mint condition, like she was talking to Brad about Barbies or something LOL

        • desertgal66 says:

          That always makes me laugh. “Bawwwby!!!…Bawwwby!!!”. She’s like a lower class version of Whitney Houston.

          Poor Bawwby. You can run, but you can’t hide forever.

          • Quincy IL says:

            I saw Whitney in the mezzanine bathroom of Water Tower Place in Feb of 2000. My son was visiting U of I Chicago so we went to lunch there.
            She had a full length mink coat on. Down to the floor..fur… so did her three male body guards..

            PETA….I think we have another Kelly Bensimon when we look at Whitney….

            I love Chicago… BTW… she did wash her hands… and she was nice to me.

    Boston Great Pics again thank you for sharing them! After looking at the pics I have to admit that Jill does not have a pretty face at all and does not take good pictures. Majority of her pictures are really bad. Luann is very pretty, has a great body and takes great pics. Kelly has a pretty face in pictures, can be harsh looking and has a body of a dude.

    • Zipit Zarin! says:

      I think Kelly is taking or has taken steroids.


      • Jenni says:

        That same thought has occurred to me as well. The muscles she has seem over developed for what a woman could achieve without working at it full time. Also, steriods do not allow you to sleep, and apparently Kelly has issues sleeping based on Bethenny’s “GO TO SLEEP” comment. Also, they make you aggressive. With the lack of sleep and aggresiveness caused by steroids, a lot of Kelly’s behavior could be explained.

        • Zipit Zarin! says:

          My employer works for the Taylor-Hooten Foundation which educates high school and elementary children on the facts about steroids. Mr. Hooten’s son commited suicide after spiraling down from using steroids (which the family didn’t know about) so he created this foundation. My employer said teen age girls are the biggest users of steroids. I said “WHAT? Why?” He said it’s all about body image not performance for girls. They want that stomach. Anyway, the other things he’s told me about the side effects made me think of Kelly’s weird behavior. I mean besides just having an incredibly low IQ. And we know she has the emotional maturity of a teen-ager.

        • Zipit Zarin! says:

          Even that old coot wouldn’t touch himher? LOL

      • emt2 says:

        I agree. That would explain her violent behavior and outbursts. She looks like she has a lot of rage bubbling under the veneer of lollipops and gum berries. I totally believe that she punched out her ex-boyfriend.

      • Katiecoo says:

        I have had that exact same thought too!

  99. boston02127 says:

    Last but not least, Kelly at her best. 🙂

  100. Katiecoo says:

    Ya know, after all the reunion shows and the “lost footage” what I’d like to really see is “The Housewives Crew Tells All”.

    ya know, the camera crew and producers. Let THEM clarify what really happened in that nuthouse in St. John, Jill’s sabotaging behavior, the behind the scenes stuff. I mean talk about a Greek Chorus. Bring on the reality checks I say! 😀

    • desertgal66 says:

      That would be some episode. Highest ratings of all. Do it, Bravo. Dooooo iiiittt…

      • anutha hata says:

        Oh please yes THAT would be the best!
        Give the crew immunity to say whatever they want.

        • anutha hata says:

          One thing I would want to know is if Kelly smells as bad as it looks like she does.
          I never worked with Kelly, but I did work on a crew with models, and I had to escort them to the dressing room, and make sure that nobody came in while they were changing, and I will never forget how bad those girls STANK!
          They never washed their hair, they just kept adding more products to it and they never washed their wardrobes either, it was disgusting.

    • Pantry Viewer says:

      Delicious! I would love that! Can you imagine how much they would love to bust on Jizz?

  101. Katiecoo says:

    I want to add one obvious detail perhaps missed. Kelly’s denial of ever having had a “one night stand” in her life, to me, is the same as Kelly saying she never eats processed foods or that she supports PETA while wearing food.

    “Well a one night stand in the 80’s is very different than a one night stand last week so I stand by my comment that I’ve never had a one night stand and I reserve the right to change my mind on a moment’s notice-so stop your systematic bullying right now!”

    • desertgal66 says:

      Please. We’ve all seen too much of Kelly for her pretense to work. We know there are men all across America who woke up to the crazy and ran for cover.

    • Kat says:

      Men just tell Kelly it’s not a one night stand if they use a condem.

      • Squirrels says:

        “Kelly is jealous of Bethenny because she thinks that Bethenny is beneath her. Last year, Kelly gave an interview to Harper’s Bazaar and said that Bethenny wasn’t worth remembering because she “didn’t make an impact” and that all she does is cry. Meanwhile, none of Kelly’s projects (jewelry, books, Behind the Hedges) have made an impact and all she did was cry when Bethenny gave her a SkinnyGirl tote bag.”

        Dammit to hell. This was the plan all along? Bethenny knew giving a gift bag with her logo on it was akin to skinning a sable… no wait… I digress. I wish I were as smart as B. Had I known in order to purge myself of well meaning morons, I’d only need to spend a few dollars to do it? MY GOD , what a coup. Rich morons will leave you alone if you go cheap. Perfect game plan.

  103. emt2 says:

    I don’t think that Kelly’s Playboy cover had a big impact. No one really even talked about the pictures or her article. Did anyone actually buy the magazine? Did Playboy have a big party for her like they usual do? I haven’t seen one picture of Kelly with Hugh Hefner?

  104. kellyhannah says:

    Watch the Kelly video…it’s really funny!

  105. MNSUE says:

    Regarding reality vs scripts: I noticed a tiny detail on BGM the other night. Wonder if anyone else did too?
    When Jason comes home after being stuck in Florida his carry on bag can’t possibly have anything in it. When he sets it down it flops over like its empty.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      MNSUE, I did notice that actually, apparently things like that are re-filmed all the time. Alex said for example when they arrived in the Virgin Islands, it was night and dark outside so they all had to return to the airport the next morning to film them getting off the airplane in daylight, then they never aired it anyway.

    • boston02127 says:

      @MNSUE~He also knocked before he came in.

  106. iceNfire says:

    Enough with all the “Alex is nude” google alerts! Wasn’t that 4-5 years ago? Jill’s grubby little fingers all over this. Jill only wishes anyone would want to look at her nude body.

    Hi Team Jill,
    Have you seen this blog that speaks about Alex and loves Jill?
    I think we should leave the girl who wrote it a lot of support comments!

    lol seriously, can you say me myself and I

    • Need a Hobby says:

      Jill refers to women as “girls.” Just like “Diane” who also just happens to plug J’s upcoming bedding line and links to the anti Alex/Lynn site.

    • anutha hata says:

      I have to thank Lynn again for banning that crazy-person from this site.
      That’s why she started that blog, and she complained about Lynn’s policy & moderating.
      That Gwen keeps making-up more & more rules because she keeps breaking her rules.
      She had a problem with comments being deleted, and promised never to delete as long as no bad language, then she deletes. A lot.
      Anyone who tells her off will have their comments deleted withing 12 hours.
      Gwen, or Otay, or Jill-whoever it is posted threats & demands against Alex, and Lynn-I copied them you need them.
      Whoever it is just wanted to troll here and complain about Lynn and invent rules & policies and God-forbid someone broke one!
      -a real TWOP wanna-be.
      From what I saw they wanted to make the rules up for what Lynn should do with this blog-the nerve!
      And they got mad when Lynn banned them.
      Now she is making-up rules and breaking them and making-up new rules to her heart’s content.
      I think it is a good idea to send all trouble-makers & trolls over there to argue amongst themselves.
      Sorry Lynn for posting so much about those trouble-makers here, but I actually am glad that they have their own place to have their little bitch/troll/spam-fest.

      • anutha hata says:

        meant to say IF you need the threats & demand i have copies.

      • Jenni says:

        I so agree about the banning of that one person. I was not around when it happened but did read the blog where it all went down, after the fact.

        Threats, to Lynn? What? Should we all chip in so she can hire security?

      • Need a Hobby says:

        I suspect that gwen hub site is possibly an example of “astroturf,” a plant: part of J’s internet/media PR offensive, which is a combo of JZ & Co’s home grown amateurish attempts and some professional assistance, probably both paid and unpaid. (Like the PR wizard/dolt who on twitter actually egged on JZ when she posted rather nastily about the reunion & other HW’s at the same time she was being shown at the reunion trying to make herself look good by being apologetic and repentant. J’s FB posting was later deleted but was preserved by AbsurdtoSublime.)

        Lest anyone think that a PR firm wouldn’t resort to creating a blog in support of its client and attacking critics, or trolling and using sockpuppets on other blogs and articles, consider the recent incident at Realty Tea where poster “AmandaR,” who admitted being a PR person, got busted for multiple postings at the blog under different nicks in support of Jill. The blogger even asked if Amanda was Jill’s PR person. See comments here: http://www.realitytea.com/2010/06/06/nyc-housewife-jill-zarin-wants-you-to-feel-sorry-for-her/

        Well, let’s just say AKR Public Relations (AKR for Amanda K. Ruisi) just happens to include JZ among her clients: http://www.facebook.com/pages/AKR-PR/108194105880149?v=wall

        When “spontaneous” blogs and posts by allegedly ordinary fans appear to include intentionally crafted talking points and just happen to follow the train of thought and goals of a client desperate to counter a poor public image and a drop in popularity….coincidence?

        (“Don’t forget the pillows! I had Brad throw in the pillows for free or discount, I don’t remember. Where’s my notes? I have it all here somewhere. And the picture! I was wrong about that, need to fix that! It wasn’t the hallway, it was a shower! And don’t forget about my charity work, I’m all about giving to others, remember that!”)

        • Kat says:

          Great point. Great post.
          I think Jill’s PR people are foolish to underestimate the public’s intelligence and ability to discern the truth. When they insult viewers with careless lies someone like you will get motivated to expose their fabrications.
          Jill already made these mistakes why is she paying someone to repeat them?

          • Need a Hobby says:

            Thanks. In addition to the way that hub blog post is written with like a checklist of points to be covered (that seem to be from Jill’s perspective), when “a fan” on JZ’s own personal website directs people to that hub site (and also shills for J’s new bedding line just oh by the way), it’s just a little too pat.

            Now there’s a poster at the hub blog shilling J’s bed sheets and book. Strangely, that poster seems to have the same problem with the proper use of apostrophes as “Susan Saunders” did during Amazongate, IIRC. Just a coincidence, right? *cough*

  108. anutha hata says:

    Oh-I just added one more Housewife that I will be boycotting, and THIS one might be the most important of all.
    I definitely will not watch, blog, or comment about the Housewives of DC. *Except to mention my boycott.
    That comes-on in August-right?
    If more people can let BRAVO know that we are sick of them & their sponsors supporting really bad people, like the White House crashers, and Jill. And exploiting mentally handicapped people like Kelly, by boycotting DC Housewives, I think we may be in a better position to have Bravo take us seriously, without completely destroying RHONY and the entire franchise.

    • iceNfire says:

      lol – hata Let’s destroy Bravo and their sponsors but leave RHONY
      ( minus Jill ) alone.

    • Upper WestSide Dude says:

      The DC Housewives will be far more interesting to watch than let us say, Atlanta or New Jersey. If the Salahis were able to get past the Secret Service then shame on the Secret Service. Let us face it, what other Housewives in the other franchises would be able to pull that off! Having lived for 10 years in DC in a previous life, you are always running into connected people with an interesting story to tell. They have the real power. I doubt Jill Zarin or her ilk would even be tolerated in DC societal circles. She could possibly purchase a home in Georgetown but that is that would be the extent of her foray into the DC social scene.

  109. Quincy IL says:

    Just looking at Jill Zarin articles out of boredom. It’s interesting that right off the bat, you will get two or three pro Jill comments and then the shit hits the fan. It seems Jill’s team monitors google alerts for Jill Zarin and tries to set the tone for the public response. Jill honestly thinks she can control cyberspace.

    • iceNfire says:

      Yes so If you reply to a positive comment on the 1st page you have a better chance of being seen.

      • anutha hata says:

        I have 90 dollars worth of free Google ad-words.
        I could do some real damage to Jill’s Google-alerts with that!
        I could point every search for “Jill Zarin” to this site for at least a day or so.

        • iceNfire says:

          How do I get 90 dollars worth of free Google ad-words?
          Please tell, I’ve been away from computer too long.
          Jill Zarin brought me back lol

          • anutha hata says:

            I got them in the mail about 3 weeks after i signed-up for Blogspot. I also have an Adsense account but I’ve had that for years.
            I needed a gmail account to sign-up with blogspot.
            They wanted a 5 dollar deposit to use the adwords, but I gave them a used-up rejected American Express gift card, and they let me start using the free Adwords anyhow.
            (they gave me a hundred dollars worth)
            I used them to post a congratulations/happy birthday ad to Bryn Hoppy, and it popped-up every time that I entered certain key words in Google and it linked people to the site I wanted them to go to.

    Does anyone else think Kelly is a 80’s teen movie villain 20 years later?

    • desertgal66 says:

      Either that, or she was one of those dumb bimbos in the 80’s horror films who kept running around in bras and high heels, and always, you know, trapped themselves in the exact place where the killer was waiting.

      “OMG! A homicidal maniac in a hockey mask and machete hands is after me! I’ll just hide here, in the dark room with the door I can’t reopen. I’ll be perfectly safe…”

      I vote for werewolf. I’ve never been sure if that horrible fur vest was animal fur or her own.

  112. anutha hata,
    I noticed that “That other site” scrubbed your comments as well as most of mine. Gwen deleted any post that mentioned Amazongate, gave examples of Jills’ vileness whether on camera or in the press . She deleted my post that gave proof that all of Jill’s apologies during the reunion were fake and for PR purposes.

    Here are some of the responses I got-
    Just Sayin 15 hours ago

    Cancertooreal, hate the CANCER not Jill. Jill is not the cancer that is causing you the pain or your loved ones the pain and suffering.

    Hate the DISEASE not a person, otherwise you too then use cancer to hate someone.

    Think about it, before you get cancer from hating.

    Lauri 13 hours ago

    Some people crack me up- Jill has a lot to ATONE for?! To who- the Pope? Because cancer didn’t eat Bobby’s internal organs- she can’t be upset after Bobby’s second bout with cancer and a falling out with a best friend? She apologized her ass off, and if it wasn’t good enough for some people, it sure as hell was a lot more apologizing than Ramona’s ever done. People at Lynn’s blog can write what they want- I can write what I want here.

    Ingrid 11 hours ago

    It’s TV for God’s sake. Why don’t you do something a bit more constructive with your time.

    Hmmmmmm 11 hours ago

    Ingrid is correct. If there wasn’t blogging/comments this would be a short term joke. I’ll not hate anyone, especially over flippin’ edited stuff.

    Cancer hits us all. No one is immune. No one has a molopoly on how it feels to you, you’re family and friends. Cancer or any illness hits us all differently. Jill already admitted that she over reacted, held a grudge, made so many mistakes. It would only serve those who hate, if she torched herself to make a bunch of losers “happy”. Then again these are people who would still be angry Jill did harm herself faster.

    luvjill 10 hours ago

    Some of you people are weird. Jill never played a “cancer card” her husband was sick and her best friend sends flowers? That’s awful. That is a time you need your friends most. Even if it was only a scare you need your friends. Bethenny was too self absorbed to care.

    Jill had very hurt feelings and I respect that. To go on a hate thing about people you don’t know that never did anything to you is off the wall. I love the show, but this season stunk. too dark.

    I want to see the happier side of the housewives next year. Jill better come back or i’m gone.

    I responded 3 or4 other times and gave evidence and examples that supported my views. Those post have been deleted.

    Here is Gwen’s latest excuse for deleting-

    gwen bridge LA 69 minutes ago

    This is meant to be a pleasant blog. I told you I don’t care what you say, but say it in less than 20 paragraphs so someone else has a fair chance to read the comments.

    I was also unsure about the talk of private contact on the open blog. I don’t want any fighting through me. Now I won’t find with you, but please just act decent. Also, please no links to hate sights.

    Thank you,


    Funny, I only had one post that was pretty long. I divided that post up into 2 parts. Now the first portion is gone. My subsequent posts ran no longer than 2 paragraphs. But, now they are gone. Along with quite a few other posters comments. Any post that provide facts and valid examples have been scrubbed. Gwen is just like Jill. She has no problem keeping “Hateful” messages that slam Alex or Bethenny. But negative comments towards Jill are limited.
    What really gets my goat is Gwen’s superior attitude and her questioning Lynns’ integrity. She acts as though she is taking the moral high road because she won’t use the word “HATE”. She has no problem with any synonyms of that word. As long as they aren’t directed at Jill.

    • anutha hata says:

      Yeah-I have the stuff from last night that she deleted. I re-posted it but she keeps deleting it and making-up new rules!
      I put her on notice that if she keeps deleting it I will spam her and asked her if she’s starting to get an idea how Lynn feels dealing-with moderating.
      sorry for talking about her again here Lynn.
      She’s getting a lot of trolls & spam there anyhow, all the people who Lynn banned ha ha.
      I think I will create an image link button for Lynn to send people over there
      and put my aggravation to good use?

    • iceNfire says:

      Jill has a lot to ATONE for?! To who- the Pope?

      Isn’t the day of Atonement Jewish? Is it Yom Kippar?
      I didn’t know the Pope was involved.
      Maybe I should go join those dummies.

      • I mentioned that Jill spoke of forgiveness and atonement in “the Book”.

        • One more thought, Jill also spoke of forgiveness and atonement to Luann during their walk in Central Park. Any examples of Jills’ own words that validated my feelings and opinions were deleted. I can just imagine what Jills’ “Just because you say it doesn’t make it so!” quote would have done to them!

          • anutha hata says:

            Gwen’s only rule was that we use PG-13 language over there, and don’t use the “H”-word.
            I think she meant to say, nothing over a 5th grade reading level?
            I have to admit I am having fun playing spam & troll over there since I pride myself on staying out of here as much as i can.

            • anutha hata says:

              meant to say staying out of it.
              I swear I am not drinking the Corona ©today.
              I wonder if Corona© will ask kelly to please stop using their brand name so much instead of asking her to represent btw?

    • Need a Hobby says:

      It all makes sense if the blog is a PR ploy and the purpose to promote JZ and put down her critics and targets du jour.

      (See my post above if you wish.)

  113. emt2 says:

    Season 2, first episode really shows Jill’s nasty side and all of the comments from Alex, Bethenny, Alex and Ramona ring true. It’s sad that she has gotten worse with time.

  114. Adgirl says:

    Just a thought … if we steer clear of the other site it may prevent another troll outburst here. They seem like the type to clog up Lynn’s site again if they want to feel “provoked”.

    • Agreed. I gave my last comment just shortly before calling it a night here. But, it generated a lot of supporting responses. Again, all were deleted. I pretty much said in my last post that I wouldn’t waste anymore precious time on that site. It wasn’t worth my time or frustration!

    • Katiecoo says:

      Yup yup….yet the food chain stop here!

      • iceNfire says:

        How about if we encounter another Troll outburst we take our comments to Jill’s website.

        • anutha hata says:

          Because Jill & that other site both delete a lot.
          The reason why I try to not post crap about other posters or this board here is because Lynn has enough to deal with moderating this place.
          I kind of like the idea that that other board is like a Limbo or jail for people who have lost the plot over here?
          Gwen has some problems and actually made threats & demands to Lynn & Alex on her Hub-page, I think that Lynn mentioned receiving threatening or hysterical emails too, but I could be wrong about that?
          Some people also have a problem with “rules”, or the fact that Lynn is arbitrary on that.
          There are complaints that some people only like the short & funny comments, well we all can’t zing-out one liners but some of us want to talk about the show, and like the funny comments too.
          I kind of like the idea that complaints about this board are taken over there to keep this one more on the topic of the shows and characters, instead of the board and the people who post on the board.
          Strega said that she shut-down TWOP because it was a “gossip-aggregator”, but she also went crazy when people talked about the board, on the board. (and other 999…. rules).
          There is no way I would expect Lynn to make up rules and then attempt to “be fair”, and have to enforce all of those rules.
          It seems like Gwen was asking for something like that along with some of her stated demands.
          In one way, I agree with Gwen that she started her own thing. I disagree with the fact that she is attacking Lynn and Alex just because she is mad that she was banned.

          • iceNfire says:

            Love the way you make sense out of my rant, but I wasn’t serious. My kids are out back doing the BBQ thing for our daddy and I hate BBQ’s. See everyone it’s not only Jill Zarin that I hate, I also hate a whole genre of cooking/chefing.

        • Squirrels says:

          ice- I’d thank you to never do that to me again.

          Imagine my horror when i caught a glimpse of where you sent me.

          good thing I hadn’t just eaten.

  115. dumberries says:

    I just rewatched Part 3 of the reunion and hope LuAnne comes back next season. I agree with those that think she’s an instigator – she really has been. But I kinda think she regrets it and she only had one side of the Zarin/Frankel story. She hadn’t seen Bethenny in months and their first 1-1 meeting at the restaurant didn’t go well (Jill was staying with LuAnne at the time). Bethenny was still pissed when she left that day and later let LuAnne have it before they ever really had chance to speak about anything other than Zarin. Looks like LuAnne can at least reflect and seems to see that she was protecting the villain (Zarin), not the victim. I also think that Zarin was the one that kept the “countless” remark by Mario on the front burner. I don’t blame Mario for not apologizing; it was very controlling for Zarin to keep insisting he apologize and dumb for LuAnne to expect it. Who wants an empty apology? And, she was indeed “less the count” at that point, not really insulting to me. Not original either, but no biggie. I haven’t seen LuAnne trash anyone else’s pursuits, even when they trashed her book. I’ve never seen her speak badly about Bethenny’s business ventures, nor Ramona’s, nor Kelly’s Playboy spread, nor Jill’s endless fabric pitches… I think she might really want to see everyone empowered and successful. If she continues to climb down from her high horse, I’d like to see more of her as a newly-divorced woman (hanging more with Sonja). Lastly, I like that she didn’t Courte under the bus at the reunion. I don’t think he’s attractive, but I think it’s kinda cool that she finds this quirky guy smart and engaging, and digs him for hanging on her every word – no matter what anyone else thinks. LuAnne deserves another chance IMO; Zarin DOES NOT.

      Agree completely!

      • iceNfire says:

        I still don’t like her but for not throwing Courte under the bus she does prove to have at least one redeeming quality.

        • Need a Hobby says:

          He’s a friend of Sonja’s, for one. He & Lulu have mutual acquaintances. Two, he had his first book out in years and the appearance on RHoNY no doubt was a favor to give him PR as well as to show Lulu out on the town although her real “squeeze” even then was the French fellow.

          • dumberries says:

            Yeah, it seemed like they were more going out for fun’s sake and for him to give her (promote) his new book. And she did say that he was friend and was playing tennis recently with her French beau. Still think she was cool for not doing any eye rolls or acting like he was anything other than a great guy when she was criticized for hanging with him.

    • I do think that Luann could be more likable. Simon has said that when she drops the “Countess” act she is really a fun person. That is the Luann I would enjoy seeing. I do think she should have been called out for eavesdropping on Jills’ phone conversations with Ramona and Bethenny. She should also explain why she told Jill to lie when “B” asked who was in the room. I thought she was a snake when she did that. I don’t care for her passive aggressive digs and her superior and condescending attitude. I think some of that comes from her trying to “play” the countess role. If she dropped the act, I might like her .

      • Kokuanani says:

        One of the things that pisses me off about LuAnn is that she is so quick to take offense [“you called me a snake,” “you called me Countless”], but she does a LOT of crappy behavior and shit-stirring, and she NEVER apologizes for it!!! [Is there a chapter in your book about this, Countless?]

        I’m willing to give her the benefit of the doubt if she can show enough smarts to dump Jill and see Bethenny’s merits. Otherwise, can her.

  116. Okay, I haven’t posted anything on that other site in over 14 hours. Here is the latest attack on me that was posted only a few minutes ago.

    Crazy to hate 37 minutes ago

    Life is too short to hate anyone.

    Cancertooreal, you need to find a shrink, you have unresolved issues.

    What a bunch of losers!

      Imaginary response back from Kelly:

      I am charmed that you find me fascinating enough to follow what i have to drink. I appreciate that. But, it’s a free country. If I wan’t to be a drunken irresponsible trademark infringer one day and a sober law-abiding citizen the next, that’s cool with me. I am a woman and I have a perogative. Just celebrate me.

    Did I miss something? I’m not sure Bobby ever had cancer. Jill talked about “Baaaawwwby’s cancer scare.” Then he was in the hospital for that “ear to ear” surgery. He had a growth, had it removed, then he gets a phone call from the doctor saying there was no cancer.

    Cancer is serious and horrible. I don’t wish it on anybody. But whatever scar he had hasn’t been visible and friends and family who have had it have had to have follow up treatments even if the malignant growth was totally removed.

    I can see the doctor saying it might be cancer and they’ll take out the growth to know for sure, but all this “Baaaawwwwby’s cancer” and “Baaaaaawwwby’s cancer scare” repeated over and over seem a bit strange.

    • anutha hata says:

      I thought that Bobby’s operation was a little more serious than that but i really don’t have the details.
      I just lost someone who had that “ear-to-ear” thyroid cancer surgery, so every time that I hear that, I get a little pissed at Jill Z.
      My favorite comment here was when someone talked about Bawby being “decapitated”. -I know its terrible, but at least now I feel better thinking about Jill and her headless husband instead-of the horrible reality of cancer & its treatment.

      • Gypsy says:

        I’m sorry for you loss. auntha hata. Cancer is horrible. I understand a cancer scare but usually people are happy when no cancer is found.

        I thought Bobby was in the hospital for a couple of days. I guess they do decapitations a lot faster these days. LOL

        • anutha hata says:

          You know what’s funny about my relative who lost the fight recently is that they went through a lot, the whole chemo, radiation, surgeries… and I think they only spent one night out of all of it in the hospital.
          It was just one thing after another and treatments etc.
          Thank-you for the kind words, and Thank-God I am not dealing with it myself right now, but I feel like shadowsnomore in that I feel “surrounded” by it.
          I just found out that one of my neighbors had multiple amputations and getting ready to get her life back by going through chemo etc.
          Its things like that that have me agreeing with complaints about how Jill and those who have everything just have to go cause trouble & misery for people when they have it so good.

    speaking of singing (well luann anyway) i was watching Party Monster with McCauley Culkin last night and at one time he and his friends start doing a chant to music that says
    Money Success Fame Glamour Money Success Fame Glamour Money Success Fame Glamour, sounds almost like luanns spoken song and……today watched Blazing Saddles, remember when Madeline Kahn does her Marlene Dietrich parody, she sings in a real low voice, off key, ha ha ha ha ha up and down the scale, it sounded like luann when she tried to hit those notes. check them out, great films, too.

    • Squirrels says:

      That’s not nice. I love that tune by Madeline Khan.

      <<<hums…." they're alway coming and going and going and coming and always too soon….
