I Hate Jill Zarin Yes I do II June 20, 2010

I Hate Jill Zarin               Yes I do                    June 20, 2010

People have asked my why do you have to use the word, “hate” in your blog, why do you hate someone you’ve never met.  Honestly only a very few have asked me that, most people who watch Jill Zarin on The Real Housewives of New York completely understand.  As a group of Jill Zarin un-fans, we’ve actually made lists of things that she’s done, lies that she’s told, excuses that she’s made for her bad behavior.  It’s all been done and it is all true! 

Recently with the Reunion show airing we learned even a few more things that could in and of itself make a normal human being hate Jill Zarin.  The woman called her cast mates and told them not to film scenes on the show with Bethenny Frankel.  Yes, the Bethenny Frankel that Jill Zarin apologized to over and over and over again on the Reunion shows.  The Bethenny Frankel that Jill Zarin cried over and over again for the loss of their friendship.  The same Bethenny that Jill made a fool of herself over by asking for a hug.  This is the same Jill Zarin that told Bethenny Frankel, “I miss you” several times. 

So this is how Jill Zarin treats her friends.  Ok, Jill was angry with Bethenny, fine, nothing wrong with that.  Jill wanted to hold onto her grudge longer than most, but for most people that just means not talking to the person that you’re angry with.  Jill Zarin decided to bring out the big guns and take aim at Bethenny’s heart.  Jill was clearly jealous that Bethenny got her own show.  We all know the rest of the story, Jill treated Bethenny like complete shit and there was not one ounce of compassion for Bethenny anywhere in Jill’s non-existent heart! 

To me, this is reason enough to hate Jill Zarin.  Yes, she is on a reality television show, yes she is someone that I do not personally know, yes, she is under the pressure of having cameras follow her around.  The last one was rather lame, but I’m trying to give her the benefit of the doubt. 

Even with all of the excuses in the world, Jill cannot wipe away the way the way that she treated Bethenny, Alex and even Ramona.  Jill acts like a spoiled child.  How many times has she said to Ramona, “I thought you were my friend, I guess I was wrong.”  This is something kids in Jr. High school say to each other. 

The woman is cruel, deviant, hypocritical, vicious, and just downright mean.  She may need psychological help even more than Kelly does.  We’ve all analyzed and discussed trying to figure out why she is the way that she is.  Bethenny told us that she used to be mothering and nurturing and that may have been true but Jill has had this scheming, mean and viciousness inside of her all this time, she just chose to hide it.  We saw bits of it here and there in past seasons and we saw how she uses the press to attack her cast mates.

She claims that she didn’t have any friends back in school when she was growing up, maybe that is why she is the way she is now.   Kelly may be annoying and make you want to pull your hair out one by one, but she’s not nearly as vicious as Jill Zarin.  Kelly may beat the hell out of you but Jill will kick you while you’re down, shove you into the gutter then steal the Christian Louboutin’s off your feet. 

Sure, I could call the blog, “I Don’t Like Jill Zarin” but I’m not a wimp, I don’t do things half-assed, if I’m going to go there, I’m going to go there I am a passionate person and that is it! 

If that still isn’t enough for some people, if someone still doesn’t get it, I recently read a post on my blog that I have to share with all of you.  This is someone else’s reason to hate Jill Zarin.  There are plenty to go around, that’s for sure.  I want to share this very personal post with you now:

“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 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.”

I don’t know how anyone can argue against this point of view, I really don’t.  To think that this is just one of the horrible vicious things that Jill Zarin has done and how it can affect so many lives that have been devastated by this horrible disease. 

Jill is also jumping on Kelly’s “Bullying” bandwagon.  This is another serious issue that has impacted children and young adults throughout the country.  It infuriates me that these women talk about it like it is something that they’ve experienced on this TV show.  There is no way anyone is going to convince me that Kelly was bullied on St. John by Alex, Bethenny, Sonja and Ramona.  I truly believe that if Sonja saw one ounce of bullying, she would have been sitting on the other couch at that reunion, I really do.  

I don’t doubt for one moment that Jill was traumatized when the women didn’t welcome her with open arms when she surprised them on St. John.  Clearly, she didn’t think it through when she planned her surprise.  The phone call the night before that Ramona and Bethenny made to Jill should have given her pause to reconsider her plan.  That wasn’t a case of being bullied either, it was a case of poor decision making and the results were in direct proportion to that decision. 

In any case, I don’t think that people who question the name of the blog really get it.  I know many of them don’t read the blog, if they did, they would see that not every blog is about Jill Zarin, in some cases her name isn’t even mentioned.  I blog about the RHONY, we’ve discussed all of the women on the show, I blog about Top Chef and Bethenny’s Getting Married? And will continue to expand to other shows if people are interested. 

The NY Post (correction NYMag) web site has a blog about The Real Housewives of New York, the blog had a section every week called, “Reasons Why Jill Zarin is a Despicable Person” or something like that…are people harassing that writer?   I’ve read dozens of blogs, articles and comments from people who hate Jill Zarin, don’t like Jill Zarin or find her to be a horrible person, have all of those people met Jill Zarin? 

At the beginning of the reunion, Jill told Bethenny that she has changed, she even added that “you’ll see it today”.  Jill clearly had a plan to show everyone that she had changed.  The problem is she couldn’t pull it off.  Her plan was to take ownership of all of her mistakes and apologize for them.  It was working for a while too, she was behaving well and saying all the right things.  The one thing that Jill couldn’t do at the reunion however was to be civil to Alex.  Her tone of voice, the horrible faces that she made and the vicious words that flew toward Alex showed me, Bethenny and the two million viewers that Jill Zarin has not changed, simply changed her target. 

And so, the name of the blog will not change, many of you found this site because of its name, but the people who read and post here are not “haters”.   This is the nicest, warmest, most welcoming group of people that I have ever had the privilege to have been a part of.   The regular people who post comments here are so supportive of one another and have some amazing stories to tell.  From an 18-year old, wise beyond her years, young lady to some “mature” ladies that have a lifetime of experiences to share with everyone to even a few guys who have made us laugh and brought us things to think about.   

Until Next Time……

    Boston – That horrid BBQ has really gotten to me! Okay maybe it’s the beer and all the people here. I’m like Bethenny – When are they leaving?

    • iceNfire says:

      Maybe I should serve the coffee.

    • error 404 says:

      I grill everything on my webber, even the Thanksgiving turkey. It’s nice to have the oven not dominated all day by the bird and I just love grilled anything. Speaking of hating people and parties, will someone please tell me what in god’s name makes Thanksgiving guests think you want them all in your kitchen when you’re trying to cook a huge fancy meal and it’s hot as hell? Get the F out of my kitchen and no, I’m not gonna look at your new shoes right now! LOL

      • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

        You grill everything, and I either grill it or crock pot it. I crock pot my thanksgiving turkey and since I have done it that way everyone tells me it is the best turkey they ever had! We are up to 3 crockpots of turkey now!

      • MNSUE says:

        My god you just described my mother in law! Talking endlessly while I would rather concentrate on what I’m doing. I love planning and cooking the meal. There is only 2 things I don’t love.
        Every f’ing year, never fail, she points out better me than her. They come to see us so she doesn’t have to cook. I know its part joke but part serious. I don’t like cooking for someone who is just trying to get out of it.

        #2 Every f’ing year being told repeatedly that I made way too much food. I am sick and tired of trying to explain the concept of the “feast”. It is ok to have mashed potatoes AND sweet potatoes.

    Had not seen this one b4- Looks like Jason is making headway convincing Bethenny that another baby might be nice…

    • error 404 says:

      I read a similar article just today or yesterday. Motherhood has softened her to the possibility, but she was more cautious in the other quotes, with her age and all, but then she said she didn’t want a ticking clock to determine it because she’s always worked at her own pace and never needed to get goals done in the typical deadlines people feel.

    • FredTheCatTravels says:

      “””Frankel’s new show Bethenny Getting Married? has been doing amazingly well, and there has been talk that if the cast does not change on The Real Housewives of New York City for next season, she may not return. “””

      I’m sure Bethenny doesn’t want to film with Kelly You’reAHoebagandNotAChef Killoren Bensimon but I wonder if Bethenny isn’t holding out for Jill to be dumped also.

      • error 404 says:

        my thoughts exactly

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Bethenny said on WWHL she would not film with Kelly should she come back for Season 4. B is smart, and saavy and knows when her stock is high. She is the first housewife to get a spin off so Bravo will take into consideration her wishes.

      • Icey says:

        I’m sure Kelly’s bizarre obsession with her is a big reason why she wouldn’t want to return.

        Kelly is clearly a delusional person with a history of violence; having someone like that so obsessed with you has got to be scary.

      Hey now, don’t be sending Jill out my way!!We can’t have her messing with our ecosystem or that KIKLET will show up next looking for Jackalopes to skin, because PETA understands her……

  7. Real Housewife of Upstate NY says:

    Why all of this concern by others over whether the title of this blog is I hate Jill Zarin or if it’s I dislike Jill Zarin? Really? Yes, hate is a strong word – but instead of concern over the title, how about some more concern over the ‘hateful’ actions Jill has displayed? Most recently, it is her behavior in trying to destroy Alex. I did spend some time this evening scanning the comments to Alex’s blog on Bravo and I’m happy to see that a good majority of them are positive toward Alex and negative toward Jill. (One exception was the poster who said to Alex, “Your kids drive me nuts.” Huh? When have the viewers even seen Alex’s kids of late?) There are plenty of people in this world that I do not get along with – I do not feel the need to destroy their reputations and/or their livelihoods as Jill is doing to Alex. For all of those on Jill’s side, why not more concern about that, and way less concern about the title of a blog?

    • BamaBelle says:

      Real Housewife of Upstate NY… I completely agree with you. You’re right, I also know people I dislike of maybe even loathe, but I don’t feel the need to go after them, their carreer, or their children like Jill Zarin has done! I generally just STAY AWAY from people I don’t like.

      I’ve had a spat or two with a good friend before, and I’ve NEVER wanted to go after her like Jill did Bethenny, nor have I made people choose between me or another friend… ridiculous!

      There’s no excuse for what Jill has done. There’s no redeeming her. If she comes back to RHONYC, as much as I love The BRAS, I don’t think I will watch because it would reward her for her bad behavior. Then again, I don’t think the other ladies should be punished. Jill Zarin should be fired!

  8. WindyCityWondering says:

    Lynn – your blog is the best and you always put it out there in your daily post! As for I HATE JILL ZARIN blog title – I laughed the first time I read it at Amazon.com while reading reviews. Everyone here has something to say about the behavior of a reality tv “star” who just doesn’t get it that she is totally transparent to the viewing audience. We all likely know a Jill Zarin type in our own lives – she is just the epitomy of everything that is hateful in a person. SO blog on everyone cause the hits just don’t stop coming!!!!!

  9. dumberries says:

    So. maybe we’ll find out who is returning to RHNY within 2 weeks. Wonder who all of you are betting on before I call it a night. My bets – not based on what I would like, but what I think will Bravo will do:
    1. Ramona – 100% always brings the drama and comic relief
    2. Sonja – 90% well received and films well with all the ladies (except maybe Zarin – didn’t see much of them together)
    3. LuAnn – 75% kinda boring in the past (especially as Zarin’s watchdog), but seems to be moving away from the dark side and getting her fun on these days; she’s entertaining to watch with Sonja and she’s got a new young dude willing to be fimed
    4. Alex – 50% made a splash in season 3, totally watchable, but might be a victim of the Zarin machine if Bravo has no balls and wants Zarin back
    5. Zarin = 50% we hate her, but we spend a lot of time focused on her pathetic self – Bravo wants people to watch, out of hate or love, and she’ll stage a whole redemption campaign. I’d bet more on her, but Bravo just might have some balls and invite Alex back and force Zarin’s hand
    6. Kelly – 25% her meltdown garnered the highest ratings, but they can’t create a meltdown over and over (morally wrong) and she’s usually irritating to watch
    5. Bethenny – 10% her show will probably be extended and she’ll make a few cameos, at most
    6. Jen Gilbert – 5% backed the wrong horse, wasn’t interesting, and came across as too stuffy.
    7. Courte – 5% caused a stir and actually seems funny to watch (this one’s a joke, but I’d rather it be him than a couple of the others!).

    • LynnNChicago says:

      I wouldn’t take any one of those bets because I think you’ve hit them all pretty much right on the head!

      I really hope that Alex is higher than that, I think she gained a lot of fans this season and I think Bravo wants to keep as many of the original cast as possible.

      I hope someone takes those bets, you’ll win some big money 🙂

      • dumberries says:

        Sorry for my numbering errors! Time to call it quits. Thanks for the great blog Lynn!

    • Char212 says:

      I agree with all of them but Courte and Kelly. I give Courte 0% chance of coming back. LuAnn’s new bf will be on but I don’t see why Courte would be on.

      I’d give Kelly 10%. Too me she’s just to big of a liability for Bravo to bring back. If she had another melt down and attacked someone Bravo could be held accountable I would think. And if that did happen it would look like Bravo is exploiting a severely sick and unbalanced person and I don’t think they’d want that. Even if she didn’t attack someone it would still look like they are exploiting her because she isn’t getting any help so she isn’t going to change.

      • twoile says:

        I agree the return of Kelti next season would be too great of a liability for Bravo she in now a known camodity.(0% chance)

    • error 404 says:

      Ramona, Sonja and Lulu are all 99.999%

      Alex is 85%. She was boring and/or weird for viewers for 2 seasons, they could have easily fired her after 2, replaced her with Kiki, or Sonja, or Jen, etc… but they kept her and now she’s popular. Why would they ever replace her? Why keep her when her #s are low and fire her when her #s are high? makes no sense. The Zarin issue. She’s not as powerful as she thinks, she had no luck in getting Kiki fired last year although she wanted to… everyone wanted it… and why would Andy set the horrible precedent of one housewife telling him who can and can not be on the show? It would be pandemonium and with every bitch drunk on 5 minutes of fame demanding all kinds of shit. No producer is that dumb.

      Jill 65% I really think she’s done. She thought she ran the show, but as Bravo proved to her this year with their editing… we made you bitch, and we can break you. She doesn’t need this show. Her rep is in ruins. She seems to listen to her hubby, and he seems level headed, and could talk her out of her need for acceptance, which let’s face it, she’s not getting at this point. Bravo would probably take her back because they know they’ve broken her, or can further if she hasn’t learned her lesson. But she’s a big cry baby and wouldn’t be shocked if she quit, Alex is probably just an excuse or a way to do damage on the way out.

      B.. 50% I really think that she’s done. She has a life and her hubby probably talks her out of doing the 110% I have to do everything and never sleep mode that’s her default. But she’s also a workaholic and a trooper, so especially if they agree to a diminished capacity… but really, a lot rides on her show and if it gets a 2nd season.

      Kiki 0.001% How she ever made it a 2nd season is beyond me. The audience hated her. Her cast hated her. Zarin and Frankel wanted her fired and they were the 2 most popular that the show possibly couldn’t do without. I seriously think Gilles pulled some major strings with the big bosses to get her a second season. But come on.. everyone, and I mean EVERYONE is openly saying that she went crazy and had a breakdown. Even Jill has loyal fans and family sticking up for her, even if it’s a losing effort. Kiki is literally holed up in her apartment ranting like an insane woman on twitter and youtube. First off… who insures these women? At this point, she could go postal on them all. Bravo is taking a lot of criticism and after Jenny Jones, why risk it. We all watched her attack a pregnant woman!

      Kiki is also a cautionary tale for Jill. Kiki supposedly came back for a 2nd try to repair her damaged rep. We all saw how that went. Another reason Jill may pick up her marbles and go home.

      • error 404 says:

        edited to add:

        I’ve never seen any evidence of Jen being a housewife outside of Jill’s PR rumor mill. She’s toast.

        Courte will probably get his own show.

      • dumberries says:

        Error, good points. I’m convinced about LuLu and Sonja (along with Ramona) being 99.9%
        I like your bets better than mine, but I’m still not convinced about Alex getting the higher odds she deserves. She and Simon were the weird ones that some loved to hate, especially in Season 1 and going into Season 2. They may have been kept on for the first two seasons for the same reason they’ll probably keep Zarin for season 4 – controversy. I think Alex was told she needed to bring it (and stand alone) for season 3. She succeeded, IMO, but I just don’t have that much faith that Bravo will keep her if they have to pay some of the others bigger salaries. I hope you’re right! Regarding Zarin, if Bobby could penetrate that concrete brain, I think he would have by now. She doesn’t need the show financially, but she needs the show for attention – she’ll be back unless she’s not invited. You’re right though – she isn’t as powerful as she used to think. She needs the fame and would probably cave and come back even if Alex is brought back. Kiki blew it because she’s not sharp and I think Zarin had a lot to do with inciting her at the end of the season – I don’t think her inability to redeem herself has any impact on Zarin’s mindset. We’ll see. I hope you’re right about Alex. Now, I’m really logging off – getting addicted to this blog!

    • Zarout! says:

      Unfortunately, I think Jill’s chance of returning is much higher than 50%. While she may be the most vile, disgusting, driven by jealousy, hate-filled woman on television, she is a ratings booster. We can all say we won’t watch if she comes back, but let’s not kid ourselves. We may not tune in for the whole season, but we WILL watch the first episode or two. How could we not? It’s like being stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic and thinking to yourself, there must be an accident ahead (equate this with the speculation of whether Jill will return or not). Then, you slowly inch along and inch along until you see the emergency vehicle lights -Ah! There is an accident and it looks big (insert the promos and teasers for the new season here). Now, don’t tell me that when you finally reach the accident, you’re not even going to glance to see what happened. Won’t you be the least bit curious?

      Pardon the somewhat lame analogy. I’ve rambled on too long. Bottom line – I think the odds of JZ returning for season 4 are at least 80%.

      • Here's the thing says:

        Jen was mentioned in press releases as an addition to the cast. She had little camera time because the other stories dominated.

    • MNSUE says:

      I hope to be proven wrong (i.e. Kelly won’t be back) but I have no faith anymore that they will do the right thing since they are rationalizing keeping the Salahis on D.C.

          It’s all about standardized personality types and how they related to groups interactions. I hate that kind of stuff myself. I don’t need to know that Jill doesn’t like Alex because she’s EEII and Alex is IPEI or whatever… Jill doesn’t get along with anyone because she’s a bitch. Or I should say, she’s a classic b.i.t.c.h. personality type.

  12. HD says:

    This is so off topic but does anyone know of any good True Blood blogs or forums?

  13. Reposting bc I’m slow and always post in the old blogs:

    OMG OMG
    Guys – either I lost my mind or I think I understand what satchels of gold means!
    If I am reading the above correctly, then kiki said: “in a scene for b fashion week. It was said that I have satchels of gold and others are so hard working”
    So… was “satchels of gold” a phrase someone said to her in reference to the fact that Kelly doesn’t have to work bc she has satchels/bags of gold (aka Gilles bank account) lying around? Could that be what it is? A reference to her not having to work for her money?
    It still doesn’t explain why she blurted it out at the breakfast table, but at least there may be an legitimate place where this phrase originated from.
    Or I’m just crazy or reading the whole thing wrong. I don’t remember that being said during the bk fashion week episode though. What do you think?

    Btw, I made a twitter just so I could ask Kelly that question. She responds to everyone but me. :”’(

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I think Kelly hears only parts of conversations and remembers those that she can also get a visual from: satchels of Gold, Al Sharpton, Hate is part of the Ecosystem…..but she doesn’t have a definition to go along with them. Like when asked what systematic bullying was, she floundered but Andy stepped in with an explanation. Kelly likes to spout big words/phrases but it is very doubtful that she really knows what anything she strings together means!

      • Yeah, “systematic” does sound like an awfully big word for her.
        B tried to make her define it, and I was cursing Andy when he stepped in. It really seemed like he was trying to “protect” her or something threw out the whole reunion. It was annoying.
        I say; if you can’t define the word, you should be allowed to use it!

    • Need a Hobby says:

      Your explanation can’t be any “crazier” than Kelly spontaneously spouting “satchels of gold” for no apparent reason. Who knows, maybe Kelly will eventually respond to you.

      Kelly even once twittered a response to one of “Ginger Zarin’s” tweets. I recall reading Ginger’s tweets when Ginger recovered herself from the shock and posted that out of all the housewives of course it would be Kelly who would respond “in all seriousness” to a chihuahua.

      I still LOL about that.

    Arizona’s next illegal immigration target: Jill Zarin’s black heart

    By Lindsay Goldwert
    Daily News Writer

    Saturday, June 19th 2010, 1:35 PM

    State Sen. Russell Pearce says that he is intent on introducing legislation that would deny entry certificates to “The Zarin Black Heart,” the citizens of the State of Arizona do not want to be the dumping ground for unused, blackened or cold hearts, especially the notorious heart of Jill Zarin.
    President Obama has stated that he opposes the law. The Dept. of Justice has hinted it may challenge the law, but a spokeswoman said no decision has been made.

  15. WindyCityWondering says:

    Wondering why Jill can’t remember a specific scene (like Alex telling her about B’s father having a medical condition) but shouts “roll the tape” when she feels it will help her make her point? Does anyone really believe any of them haven’t seen every show prior to the reunion? I bet Jill even has a one tape of JUST JILL for each season!

    • error 404 says:

      Jill is a little ADD IMO. She’s forgetful and has a hard time staying on one subject and often talks over people because it’s hard for her to spend any serious amount of time on any one subject. She often had to be reminded of things during the reunion that had nothing to do with her or her defense. I think she watches the show like my sister in law watches tv.. with the lap top and phone and live conversations all at once.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Jill has an Attention Demanding Disorder! She is always looking for an opportunity to insert herself into the conversation.

      Classic!

      “She’s devious and she’s got a plan. She knew that by calling me Madonna and attacking me in front of other people, knowing that — and I told the editors I had five minutes, I’m supposed to be at Zac Posen. And they said, “Please come, come come, come for two seconds, they’ll understand.”

      They set me up. They’re like, “She can only come for five minutes, she’s a diva.” I’m not a diva — I’m just late. The perception on television is that I don’t have any time and I’m a diva. But the realty is I’m a working girl.”

      Setting aside the fact that it’s horrible English and doesn’t make much sense… OK, so she got to name drop Zac Posen, but WHY was she going to Posen? She’s his muse and he can’t work without her there? She was interviewing him? She was picking up a free bee to wear to fashion week? She just had to have those shoes! What?! Why Kiki Why. Why did you have to rush to Zac Posen?

        If she is collecting a paycheck then she needs to be at work! She wasn’t set up! She came off as a diva (does she really think her name is that noteworthy) and was argumentative and wasn’t focused on the scene – which was a charity! Oh, being charitable came later in her life, my mistake.

That’s sensationalism, just like in writing. People recognized me as one of the 25 Most Influential People of ‘09. Like for this article, if I say something’s crazy, you’re going to say, “Kelly thinks it’s crazy!” That makes it more exciting”

    this is regarding statements made that kelly pays attention to the men and ignores the women, because she can get by on her so called good looks, but women don’t cut her that slack. watch the reunion season 3 part one in the beginning. we all know andy is gay, well, when she says hello to andy, she is simmering, flirting suggestively, when she says, hi andy. you’d think she was jessica rabbit. poor andy, having to get hit with that attempt at some sort of seduction. creepy

You ARE your Jersey Number. My kid isn’t Mike Kitty, he’s number 13 on the field & at bat.

    I find this so hard to believe. Jill is human. *i’m ducking* Why on earth would any human being continue to subject their personal, public, and business life to a continuing onslaught of negativity?
    I pray that I am a better person than to ever find myself in this position, but if I did wake up one day and found that my behavior had not only alienated my closest friends but caused them and my family financial distress I would distance myself, get my act together, apologize and then distance myself again. Hopefully someone would forgive me and allow me back in their life.

    • Quincy IL says:

      I think Jill believes that all publicity is good and that being infamous is the same as famous.

      BTW… Zarin Fabrics got on HGTV’s Design Star last night. I think they bought carpets and drapes there.

      The women’s blue drag was so ugly… What were they thinking? The color scheme was like a Texas football teams colors.

      • Quincy IL says:

        blue draps… I was thinking drag queen for some reason…

        • BamaBelle says:

          Quincy IL,

          I saw “The Next Design Star” last night. That’s the first thing I noticed… Zarin Fabrics. I thought it was a different store where they were looking at rugs? I could be wrong. I wonder what kind of discount Jill offered to get them to use Zarin Fabrics? Ibet you anything she was there when they filmed that scene, and HGTV cut her out!

          I agree about the blue and yellow room the girls did. Is that the one you were talking about? I love the colors of blue and yellow together, but their’s didn’t look good! I think the boys did a better job on their space.

          What’s that girl’s name who won the first challenge and tried to take over last night and ended in the bottom 2? I can not stand that woman, either! What a WITCH!

      Ice,

      I have no doubt you would give up the fame in a heartbeat if you had caused the public pain and shame to those you professed to love. I would too. But, we’re talking about Zarin. I think if she was going to reflect, take responsibility and try to change outside of the cameras, she would have started that process 7 months ago when everything started to unravel for her. Instead, she keeps igniting the fire publicly and changing targets. She is human, but that’s about the kindest thing I can say about her unless she does exactly what you would do in the same situation. She won’t.

  21. tuzentswurth says:

    Jill hugging B and saying I miss you etc made me gag. If B allows Jill to worm her way back into her life, I would lose all respect for B. I don’t think this will happen though. Most telling was when B told Jill that Jason doesn’t like her and then told her why. Jill didn’t even get it or appear to listen, she is so intent on her mission. Personally, I was LMAO.
    I think B was just being gracious and avoiding a scene but allowing Jill her little fake moment but B appeared to be just waiting for it to all be over and for Jill to get the heck off of her. Looked to me like….yeah, yeah, that’s nice, now go away!

    • Quincy IL says:

      Bethenny is done with Jill. I don’t think Jason wants the toxicity in their family life.

      Bethenny has manners! The fact that she didn’t rise to meet Jill for that “hug” speaks volumes to the fans. Bethenny is so done with her but Jill doesn’t get it!
      It also gave us yet another shot of Jill’s ever increasing ass (loved how she tried to cover it getting onto the plane)!

    I was taking a nap before the kids ballgame today (what? a girl can get cranky when she is up till 2am reading a certain blog’s comments ;)) Got up to find the hubby had cleaned up the house, the giddiness was short lived when I found out he broke my favorite Princess coffee mug. He looks at me & says with a straight face, it just fell off the island. I said you were just going about your business when all the sudden you heard a crash? Like the Princess mug decided it no longer wanted to hold my morning coffee so it decided once I finally fell asleep, it leapt off the island & committed suicide. He says well I may have bumped it. May have? Yeah that sounds like the more likely scenerio.

    • LOL! That mug was DONE! 😛

      I had the cutest mug with a woman with frizzy orange hair wearing a robe obviously having just awoke and looking into the mirror on one side and the other side had an orange and white cat looking into the mirror too and it’s reflection was an orange smiley face.

    This is all a hoax guys. This whole thing has been orchestrated by Bravo TV. Didnt you notice the majority of the questions, plus the most difficult and embarrassing, were directed to Jill. Andy Cohen is an executive producer. They let Bethenny slide by cuz theywant her show to be a success. How sad.

    • RileyKitty says:

      SO Bravo made Jill behave in a vile disgusting manor all season long too make sure Bethenny’s show is a success? That is what the reunion show was rehashing… JILL’s VILE BEHAVIOR. Amazing! What is really sad is that some people watch the show & still don’t want to make JILL accountable for JILL’S actions.

      • RHNY addict says:

        Jill was a nasty bitch to fellow cast members all season, and apparently PRE season as well. All Bravo did was AIR the things Jill said and did.

        This is on JILL, not BRAVO.

        The cap it off, she showed her true self under a fake name on Amazon, pretending to be “Susan Saunders” while STUPIDLY posting on her own Amazon account. She failed to change the name on the account wish list, and that showed up as JILL SHAPIRO with a first entry dated 1999. Same birthday, wish list items “for Bobby” and “for Ally.”

        She’s an idiot and a bully. She called the number one Amazon reviewer antisemitic for a well thought out review of her book, wrote a RAVE for herself on the RHNY DVD as well, two years earlier!

What makes anybody think Bravo wanted Jill to look bad to make Bethenny look good-that makes NO SENSE! Wouldn’t viewers have enjoyed Bethenny sharing all the wedding planning and baby shopping with Jill, instead of the World War-III that Jill started!

      I don’t think it is a hoax. I think the producers (or whomever casts these women for the show) start out with a shopping list of personality traits they are looking to fill. They seek personalities that will produce drama and hopefully produce ratings.
      I believe how the women are portrayed is in part the result of editing but more largely based on and consistant with their individual personalities.
      I think their character traits are real and shine through despite editing.
      And Jill is busy off camera yet publicly reinforcing the perception that she is manipulative, mean, vindictive and disloyal.

The fact that you spend a portion of your time sending aggressive Tweets to housewives you don’t like doesn’t help you, either. Richard Lawson also hates Jill and does not spend his time telling her what an idiot she is over Twitter. That’s where you cross the line.

    Just calling it like I see it, much like the rest of you. I read this blog for the comments. Once TWOP shut down their RHONYC forum, there isn’t anywhere else to go that’s this high traffic. There’s always something to read here. BravoTV’s forums are unreadable.

      Did you read the post in this blog? That person feels personally wronged by Jill Zarin. As do the people who have been stalked IRL. Her claims of harrassment and stalking are an insult.

      Jill has taken aim at Lynn in the past for the horrible crime of hosting a small get-together with Simon & Alex, so yeah, I’m ok with Lynn’s views. Jill did go after her personally FOR NO FUCKING REASON OTHER THAN INSANE JEALOUSY, instead of buying a “fan” to host a similar party for herself. Or maybe that’s the real issue. Jill has to buy friends & fans; Lynn, Alex, Simon, and Bethenny do not.

    Interesting take on Jill’s use of Bawby’s cancer to further her goals on the show. It now appears to have been comparable in seriousness to her excuse for not going on Ramona’s trip (helping her daughter with a college-entrance essay, which she should have been doing on her own anyway). Fortunately for the Zarins, thyroid cancer is usually completely curable and if Jill is lucky, she will never find out what it is like to go through a serious cancer with someone close to her.
    P.S. I wonder how Jill’s mission to destroy Kate Gosselin on account of Kate’s bodyguard barring Jill from the ladies room at the ice-skating event is going these days?

Or why ask plp not to film with B, how is that bad editing? If Jill took it ion herself to make a fake fight for drama she sacrificed her own book sales which I find hard to believe she would do….. I think she is of the mindset when in doubt blame editing

    As for if she has personally harmed me, no but I don’t appreciate liars or plp who want to me to spend money on their stuff but can’t be honest about their actions and finally she did attack Lynn and this blog- final thought Jill Zarin if you can’t take the heat stay off TV- resign now ….. quit……

    The New York City PR Warriors…

    I know nothing about Public Relations. I first noticed that PR was important when the genius Kelly Bensimon explained that you diffuse aggression by telling someone they look pretty in that dress. I believe that was PR 101. PR 102 was make the “aggressor” think you are ok with them. Tell them that all is forgiven. Of course, it’s not forgiven and you will bring it up whenevery you wish to bring it up, but that is PR 102 as explained in the Brooklyn Fashion Show.

    I’m sure that both Jill and Kelly has legions of PR people these days. There’s no way in hell that Kelly came up with the Ramona has a pino grigio blood type. That was a great line and was pointed out by Jill. When Sonja tried to discuss the Island events, she was told that she was drinking the whole time too. Someone’s PR people are dissecting the shows.

    So it’s the New York PR people vs. common sense and believing what you see and hear. I wish Lynn had her own PR firm and that they would battle the lies and false accusations from those NYC people. Right now, the good guys on the left couch are being slayed by those two women with attack dogs on the internet. It bothers me, but there is nothing I can do but tell the truth. Jill Zarin is wrong and Kelly is a nut.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      The thing about using a PR firm – you have to listen to them! If you continue to do what has gotten you in trouble then you only have yourselves to blame – Jill & Kelly!!!!! Kelly’s rules are of her own creation…..which she doesn’t exactly follow anyway. The common sense rule is: If you can’t say something nice, then don’t say anything at all. Furthermore, when you reach the toxic level – disappear, don’t talk, wait it out!

        insanity – def:
        Repeating an action or behavior in the hope the outcome will change.

    • error 404 says:

      what’s really despicable about Kiki’s PR plan is that it knows her rep is beyond repair, she’s in free fall so she’s just doing as much damage as she can on the way down.

      For ex: calling Sonja a drunk. Sonja is very popular and Kiki took a direct hit at her rep, planting the seed that Sonja couldn’t be trusted because she’s a drunk.

      But he problem is, we the 2 million viewers weren’t drunk. We saw it all, and we hate Kiki for it. And Sonja’s drinking will never change that.

      Kiki would have been better off claiming she herself was drunk, and therefore not responsible for her actions. People use that excuse all the time. But Kiki’s too stupid and self absorbed for that. No, my rep’s inthe toilet, so let me drag someone else’s down with me. Ugh, she’s a waste of space.

      Jill’s plan is similar. By appologizing and deflecting, those who refuse to forgive and forget her hurtful and precalculated actions are now the bad guys. She purposefully tried to destroy Bethenny’s career, we all saw it, yet the internet is full of criticism of B not getting up for the fake cringe-worthy hug. She’s evil.

    • Kokuanani says:

      I first noticed that PR was important when the genius Kelly Bensimon explained that you diffuse aggression by telling someone they look pretty in that dress. I believe that was PR 101. PR 102 was make the “aggressor” think you are ok with them.

      I wonder if Kelly learned this in one of those fabulous courses she took at Columbia’s night-time extension school?

      I sure haven’t seen any place jumping up to claim ownership of “PR 101” and “PR 102.”

    Whew… back from my HS reunion… Looks like I missed a lot. Going to try and catch up between trying to clean the house. Hope you all had a great weekend and an even better week coming up……PS..Missed Reunion Part 3==where oh where can I watch it online? Any ideas? Thanks, all!!

  41. Lorriane says:

    You know what is really sad, that Jill would encourgage someone like Kelly, who is mentally ill to fight her battles. This is truly sad. Shame on you Jill, you knew she was having a breakdown when Ramona and Bethenny called.

    Bravo better let Kelly and Jill go, or next season, someone may seriously get hurt from these two women. I am afraid for Alex, because she is a lady and doesn’t fight dirty. Its un-telling just what Jill can and would do. Its something to think about.

    Lynn, love you, thank you for this blog.

  42. CuckooforCocoaPuffs says:

    Ok, this will be controversial, but I think Jill should be back next season, and Bravo would be crazy not to let her (as long as her demands aren’t crazy).

    Jill brings ratings because she is the least self -aware of all of the housewives. I would argue that she is more delusional than Kelly. She sees herself as popular, lovable, principled, beautiful, interesting and fabulous. She is none of those things. We love to “hate” her because of the contradictions in what she says and what she does. She has no understanding of public relations, so she keeps digging a bigger and bigger hole. She would be crazy not to come back if they ask her – her desire to be famous will not be sated by fading back into obscurity.

    Jill deals with the haters by an increasingly frantic attempt to harass and control the public sentiment. Kelly keeps tweeting nonsense, but doesn’t hate back. I think her approach is a lot more “sane” than Jill’s.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Since Jill said she would not film with Alex, I have to go with Alex staying and Jill going. It seems doubtful that Jill could get Alex off the show. There are ladies waiting for a chance to be on the show now – so maybe it is time to get rid of the toxic messes.

      • CuckooforCocoaPuffs says:

        If it was either Jill or Alex, I wholeheartedly agree with you. I don’t think that Jill is in a position to make demands like that, however, and I think they should both come back. Alex can hold her own, I think – by being straight-forward and having integrity, she shows Jill for the deceitful person she it.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          Oh yeah, Jill will have to take on BRAS if she goes after Alex – those ladies are bonded from the war on scary island.

      • Quincy IL says:

        Jill is not in charge of the Planet Earth or Bravo. If Alex is on the show and she is invited to an event, Jill will film with her. Jill may be filmed running from the table when Alex arrives or saying nasty things behind Alex’s back, but both will be there and filmed.

    • Scorpiosue says:

      I say bring Jill and Alex back. I want Bravo to make Jill uncomfortable by Bravo thumbing their nose at her and bringing Alex back anyways. Who is Jill to make such demands at the reunion? I’ll give it to Jill that by being a nasty human being she brings in ratings. Sickening, but true. If anything she’s a good PSA to show my son on how to NEVER act.

    I just did myself a disservice by popping over to the Bravo site and read Jill’s blog and comments from her “fans”.

    What load of bullsh*t! Are these people for real? Did they watch the same show with blinders on or have the audio on mute? Had the meds worn off or something? I have never read such tripe in all my life.

    “We love you, Jill. You are the best. You are my favorite. You are so honest”. Give me an effen break! Either she has a swarm of PR people busily earning their money by churning out this block of cheese, or there are some seriously stupid braindead people churning out the most foolish comments ever to see the light of day.

    Most of these morons sound like those who fervently believe in the Tooth Fairy if they are able to see anything close to adoration of that conniving fool.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      For weeks now the Bravo blogs are being sanitized and I am really only reading the blogs and not the comments.

    • Maryla says:

      @PatJohnson — the reason that the posts are all so positive is because BRAVOTV.com censors the less-flattering comments. I posted two things to Jill’s blog this season — neither of which contained foul language or hateful smears — and both were excised.

    Maybe I deserve to be hit up the side of my head, but I seriously don’t get what this “blog war” is all about. Have we all gone so off the tracks that we have forgotten that it is merely a discussion about a tv series on a small network that concerns groups of women who essentially behave like “famewhores” with little evidence of real talent?

    I can’t stand Jill Zarin. Not overly fond of Lu Ann. Don’t trust Ramona. Thinks Kelly is a total mess. Does this make me a bad person? I am not overlooking some of Bethenny’s bad behavior, and Alex may be a nice person but she did not attract me as the reason to tune in. Does this make me a “traitor”? Come on!

    Danielle’s “performance” is bordering on porn and Bravo is promoting it. Theresa is a loser and Dina a whiner. Jacqueline is irrelevant and her daughter a disgrace. Caroline is a smug know it all and her kids are uninteresting. Does this make me an enemy because I choose to comment on shows that is making “stars” out of people who have no business comparing themselves to actual entertainers who have something to offer?

    We all look at the same thing and come away with our own impressions. That seems to me to be the only purpose of this blog.

    • HD says:

      I agree. When I read some of the new comments I thought what is this all about?! I am a big fan of keeping the main thing the main thing-which was Jill Zarin and her crazy antics. Blog wars? Really? It is not that deep. Some people just do not need to be on the computer.

And Im pretty sure that someone else made the blood type is pinot grigio comment before Kookoo did. was it B talking about the vampiring ramona? can someone remember.. All i know is that those two are intelligent enough to come up with those two comments themselves.. P.S. Lynn Love you, unfortunately nothing gets done all day while I read.. lol!!

    Lynn…
    I have been following your blog for awhile now and I’ve commented a few times. I absolutely LOVE it. I don’t think the name should be changed either.

    Anyway…the reason for my post today is to tell you that after reading in previous posts about the influx of *Trolls* it got to me to thinking last night when I went to bed that I could be partly responsible for this happening here. I’ve linked your blog several times on Yahoo! Answers. People have posted questions about RHONYC and how they feel about Jill Zarin – them feeling the same as most everyone here – and I took it upon myself to link your blog, thinking that they too, would enjoy reading what you and others here have to say.

    In only makes sense that some people that DO like JZ have seen the link and have come here, wanting to stir things up and when this hit me last night, well I couldn’t sleep for quite awhile b/c if they have come here b/c of me linking your blog on Y!A, then I feel dreadfully about that. That was never my intention and it obviously never dawned on me that someone would see the link and come here to make trouble…..I feel so badly about it and I could be overreacting but I felt like I needed to say something.

    I followed you on Twitter this morning thinking I could send you a private message but since you don’t follow me, I couldn’t do that. I didn’t want to do this in an open forum but I could find no other way to let you know and to apologize directly to you.

    I’m so sorry.

The more viewpoints, the more interesting the conversations, so people who like Jill Zarin are welcome to try to convince me why, I just don’t see any defense for her but I’m open to listening. Debate and discuss.

      You didn’t do anything unusual, many people post links here, and post the link for this site elsewhere, no big deal, lots do it, nothing is your fault!!!

    Lynn and ladies of the IHJZ blog-club – Happy Monday to all of you! I have read all posts this weekend, and just want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for such delectable reading. You offer fresh insights each day to Lynn’s postings. I love the “polls” and “predictions”. You might even hear my LOLs and snarky agreements to your posts, but I am always so far behind in the posting to reply in a timely manner.Today I am staying home from work, waiting on a dr appt to find out results from Friday’s MRI of my spine – NOT cancer (Shadows, you are in my prayers), but really troublesome nerve issues that cause pain and weakness. I am thrilled to be posting in real time 🙂 Rileykitty, once I get my diagnosis I will be visiting your blog to see how I can improve my healing and overall health. Thanks for taking on the subject for us – I love your postings here at Lynn’s blogspot.
    Lynn, I had suggested another name at one point for the blog because I thought you were taking suggestions. I love the blog as it is and do not find anything offensive about the name – it is what it is, and if someone doesn’t want to read it…just keep on moving – right out of here.
    I do NOT want Kelly back – I feel uncomfortable watching her unraveling life and feel so badly for her girls. I stopped watching NJ for the same reason (Theresa is ruining her children). All the others should come back (except Jenn who was never really there). I want to see Alex continue to grow as a strong, articulate woman, and Jill will give her many opportunities in that arena. I do hope that I don’t have to spend much time looking at that garish mess of a condo, though…poor Ginger living there – no wonder she pops all over – trying to mute the aqua and silver.

  60. Olivia says:

    I am probably one of the few who does not consider Kelly to be suffering from a mental breakdown. I see her as being on a “mission” and when you combine her sheer stupidity, a lack of maturity, and consider that the liquor was flowing freely, you have a combination of forces – with Jill instructing from afar considering the number of phone calls exchanged – that converged. Kelly just took it too far.

    Which may explain why Jill did not overly react to Kelly’s “breakdown”. Kelly may have been out of control to the point where they had to suspend filming and send her home, but my take is that she just refused to shut up. She had gotten herself into a position that to back down would show a “contrived side” that she did not want to reveal. ” She baited Bethenny exclusively from the moment the plane landed. She was itching for a fight and by getting Bethenny to respond she would have been able to say “I told you so”. It backfired. Remember, she assumed that Ramona, the ever changing kaliedescope, “had her back”. She assumed that Ramona’s loyalty lay with her “friendship” with Jill and if anyone assumes Ramona stays fixed on a position they need only to watch other episodes that refutes that idea.

    It is clear that Jill fed the words into Kelly’s dumb head. Kelly has referred to her as a “mentor”. And this trip took place a few days following Alex confronting Jill at Jennifer Gilbert’s party. The Alex throwdown was very fresh in both their minds.

    Kelly was acting on behalf of her mentor as the “bullying” of Bethenny was first and foremost in her thoughts. What she did not expect that the others would take up the defense as strongly as they did. Ramona turned on her and this must have left Kelly feeling she was “all alone”. Her attack on Alex was another opportunity to set the record straight on behalf of Jill and she just let it all out. Kelly is just to stupid to not recognize that there are limits and as determined as she was to vindicate Jill, she went far above and beyond which made her look crazy. She refused to let go of her mission and no amount of reasoning was going to change that.

    Kelly is stupid, uneducated, and lacks any sense of self awareness. But it was plainly Jill speaking through Kelly who felt the need to defend her. The moment good old Ramona brought up Jill’s name at any time – and please do not think that she was not ready to gossip about Jill – Kelly went into firing mode. Bethenny was the official target but Kelly was out to vindicate Jill from the beginning. Jill’s name was all she needed to having her buttons pushed and not being a “good fighter” she made herself look mentally unbalanced.

    She may have issues but I don’t see a mental breakdown as much as a spoiled, uncomprehending brat who took up the fight for an undeserving “friend”.

    • Laura says:

      I agree about Kelly baiting Bethenny any chance she could. Who does that? Someone itching for a fight, just like you said. Every conversation that was started in Kelly’s presence, she had something negative to contribute, even if it was to say that she didn’t want to talk about it.

      And Jill’s jumping on the ‘bullying’ bandwagon was the most disgusting thing I think I’ve seen. Mainly b/c there is no basis for it. Even Luann was confused and mentioned that she hadn’t seen any bullying from the other women towards Kelly. Kelly’s constant flip flopping with every statement out of her mouth -thinking its okay to do that – Bethenny etc questioning her about it – that does NOT equal bullying. But Kelly and Jill together – agreeing – thats more bullying to me than anything that has ever been done by Bethenny and anyone else, IMO.

      >>She may have issues but I don’t see a mental breakdown as much as a spoiled, uncomprehending brat who took up the fight for an undeserving “friend”.<<

      When one has a mental breakdown, it is a temporary, momentary situation. We all know that Kelly's contradictory/defensive/makes no sense rants – are permanent!

      Oh, and the bruises and cuts to her fiance were what, self inflicted? It’s hard to make sense even of Kiki’s lies, as the make no sense. I know stupid people. They may not use big words, but they can form a basic sentence. I also know intelligent people with mental health issue who have trouble conversing when off their meds.
      Just because Kiki’s as dumb as a plank of wood, doesn’t mean she’s not crazy as a loon.

      • Char212 says:

        I too think Kelly is dumber then a box of rocks on top of having issues with either drugs or mentally unbalance or both but I still think her and Jill planned the attacks on B. It all makes sense to me when I think that when Jill found out that B was getting her own show she set out to do anything she could to ruin it for her. First she tried to get all the other women to agree not to film with B and when that didn’t work she tried to get them to not go on Ramona’s weekend. When that didn’t work either I can just see her telling Kelly to do whatever it takes to make B look bad. The thing is, she sent a kid to do a grown-ups job who doesn’t have the ammunition to fight on a grown-ups level. Happily it backfired on them big time. So ya, I think it was a plot devised by Jill to bring Bethanny down any way she can and it blew up in her face. Personally I think Jill looks quite charming with egg on her face 🙂

        • error 404 says:

          Absolutely! One fo Jill’s very first THs this season was her saying she had misjudged Kelly and that was because she’d been wrongly influenced by Bethenny. Then cut to the axis of evil having lunch int he Hamptons, Kiki is rambling incoherently, Lulu is laughing in her face, and Jill interups them to talk about her anger with Bethenny.

        • Jenni says:

          SO- It might have been true that BRAVO, in the form of Jill who thinks she is running the show(s), that forced Kelly to go on the trip!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      IMO Kelly probably thought Bethenny would automatically be her peer because they are close in age – while the other women intimidated Kelly. B had her number from the start – so she didn’t celebrate Kelly. Kelly bullied Bethenny from the beginning but Jill helped her escalate her attacks and likely put her on a “mission” for the vacation trip. Unfortunately, Kelly (combine all reasons from stupidity on) and she felt like she was the one being attacked because no one responded to her lunacy like she wanted them to do.
      I agree that much of what Kelly did there was instigated by Jill.

      • error 404 says:

        eh.

        Kelly clearly feel she is superior to everyone. She keeps repeating that Bravo hired her “to raise the bar”. I don’t believe they ever said it, but whatever.

        She had similar run ins with others… Ramona for starters who called her on her BS about knowing Richard Meier and then confronted her on her page 6 article claiming that she was introducing Ramona to the world of fashion.

        The reason why she fixated on B was because B talks in sound bites, and “Madonna” was an easily repeatable dig that really got under her skin.

        Crazy old broads like Ramona can be blown off because they’re sad, but B, who is clearly Kiki’s inferior in every way (as she spend every single moment telling us) really needed a slap down. No one takes Ramona seriously anyway, and Kiki, a obvious drug addict, can openly call her a drunk and no one will even say a word. Well, Jill will praise her for saying it, but no one will defend Ramona. B on the other hand, much to Kiki’s dismay, is very popular. It’s Kiki’s great job in life to make us see B as the POS Kiki knows her to be.

    Did anyone watch Design Star last night? They showed the contestants going in to ZAAAAAARIN Fabrics. I kept waiting for Jill to pop out between bolts of fabric to get more screen time. She didn’t make onto the show, whew!

      Likely it was a brief flash on the storefront. There were other fabric shops shown as well.

      When she implied they wouldn’t let her have the book on the show because “they wanted cat fights” I was like “Hmmm… but they had Jill’s book” until I remembered that the scene they showed was Jill organizing a photo shoot and the mother and sister non stop complaining during the whole thing, like littel Jill can do no right in the family.

    So Danielle is singing her new song live on WWH, well that should deliver a few laughs and perhaps a Lynn blog of its own.

    As far as the Kelly debate of is she crazy or something else. . . I’ve always thought that labeling Kelly crazy or having a legit illness or abuse problem gets her off the hook for her behavior and I just will not allow her to get a pass. Kelly is a vile excuse of human being and sometimes (dare I say) even worst then Jill. I will not go to her site or add to the traffic of any web articles or news about her because she LOVES the attention, it’s very similar to a troll in some ways. But Kelly’s narcissistic conduct is beyond anything I have ever experienced.

    • tuzentswurth says:

      She can’t be normal and not be embarrassed by her own stupidity.

    • jennifer says:

      Personally I think she is just dumb and a bad liar….I think she says anything she wants and then can’t remember her own lies which is why she comes off as contridicting herself, I think she tried to make this persona but couldn’t fake it long enough to carry it off (I.E. “I don’t eat processed foods” -meaning I am sooo healthy but she lies and she couldn’t keep it up thus 2 seconds later with the gummy bears) . She is a lier who is to stupid to remembr her lies and when caught lying she is not crafty enough to get out of it so she just stands by her lie no matter how many times proven false…..

      • Again, I believe she is a mean drunk or drug abuser with underlying mental issues. I also think she is a narcissist and a jealous bully. I think “B” got it right on the reunion. You can’t reason with her. She either doesn’t want to listen or refuses to listen. When she does listen it’s Kelly Filtered! She hears what she wants or listens to bits and pieces. Then she makes absurd statements and conclusions on what she believes she heard. I truly do think she needs to see a professional. She has All kinds of problems and we probably have only scratched the surface as to what they really are!

    • error 404 says:

      I don’t see why it should get her off the hook.

      For ex: alcoholism is a disease. Yet, there are happy drunks and then there are mean drunks. All drunks are addicted to booze, but they all don’t beat their children. Only the mean child beaters blame the booze for their own bad actions.

      In fact, Kiki came right out and called Sonja and Ramona drunks. She may have been blotto, but Sonja said nothing but nice, kind remarks even when faced with Kelly’s off the hook craziness. Likewise, Pinot G blood type or not, Ramona never insulted a single guest. Yet “sane” “sober” Kelly rambled incoherently day and night, had visions of demons, attacked everyone she could at every chance she could saying some of the meanest things ever said on the show.

      I’m telin ya
      a) she a mean nasty bitch
      b) she’s crazy
      c) she self medicates

      even if she went to rehap and them got on medication, she’d still be a mean nasty bitch. It’s who she is. But please, girl is 3 kinds of crazy. She makes the 3 faces of Eve look normal.

  68. kellyhannah says:

    Here is a 38 min interview from Kelly on Obsessed tv from last year…she starts talking about RHNYC after 10 min.

  69. tuzentswurth says:

    Posted on jillzarin.com, but it doesn’t seem to be passed through…hmmmm…..
    Jill’s quote on jillzarin.com
    [” I really thought B and I were friends. I think I was the last to know that we never were. A real friend, not matter what, would have let it go and made up. ”

    You were the one who originally would not let it go. You drove the point home with B numerous times till she got it,…you were never a real friend and didn’t want to be her friend at all ever again…….until you got the backlash…….a reality that wasn’t wasted on B.
    Let’s see if you can recognize this reality or need I post this elsewhere.]

    On to other things:
    Jill credits her hairdresser…….She looks like a 15 year old Gidget wannabe. Her “do” is horrendous and ridiculous on her. Is this a children’s hairdresser?

    Kelly, oh Kelly, Kelly Kelly. Did you really mean to imply on the reunion show that Sonja and Ramona were just too drunk to even know what was going on? Yeah, we’re all buying that Kelly. She really should have been called out on that one. A couple of million others must have been drunk too every time those vacation episodes were aired. How you gonna pull that delusion off?
    AND, Kelly. I’ve raised 3 healthy, intelligent, well adjusted offspring. They never refer to me in the 3rd person when speaking to me, as in……”nobody talks to Kelly Bensimon like that.” Nor did they run after me when they were ~ 8&12 saying…Mommy, you look amazing. Mommy you should wear tighter clothes. Mommy you should do it, it’ll be fun.” Maybe taking life advice from school age children isn’t a prudent thing to do. ( Read the gawker interview…http://gawker.com/507757/kelly-bensimon-talks-babies-listen-up-bethenny) There is a reason children are not emancipated at age 8. They don’t have good judgement or life skills. Maybe these are just the children’s voices that Kelly hears in her own head fawning all over her. This woman is a moron and a drug addled wreck. Please get her off of television. She can only write a 2 sentence blog and even those two sentences don’t make any sense!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I agree – a REAL friend will let go of all bs/grudges when a real emergency happens to one of the friends (like B’s father) – just like that – but Jill you just wouldn’t stop! You had another opportunity when B got engaged – again you wouldn’t stop! So it became an obsession and you put the majority of the blame on Bethenny – everything you did you own! So now you missed major milestones in B’s life – she shared them with people who were there for her – you were not! When she said she will take what she learned from your “friendship”, she was nicely saying I would never be friends with someone like you ever again.

      • tuzentswurth says:

        After someone says they are cutting you out like a cancer………would you want to be around them EVER again?
        Jill’s insensitivity to people who have had their lives affected by cancer, their own or loved ones, is astounding. I get the impression that Bobby had a self contained, easily excised malignancy that included none of the horrors of chemotherapy, radiation, or possible metastasis. She made a huge drama of it and made it all about herself and how she was slighted. To turn around and say to the camera that her relationship with B was “like a cancer”………..oh please, I have to stop. Lynn, I know why you hate Jill Zarin. It makes perfect sense.

    • tuzentswurth says:

      Thanks, I DON’T see a picture of her “spread eagle in the lobby of her husband’s hotel. Hmmm
      Taking private picture for one’s husband doesn’t seem to be in the same category as being ” shy” but taking public pictures in an “iconic” magazine like Kelly boasts she did. The magazine is only “iconic” Kelly because men, young and old have been wanking off to pictures like yours for many years. roflmao. You are a moron.

      • To me, these pictures are old news that Jill used to stir up trouble for Alex and Simon. Alex and Simon addresses them on season 1’s reunion. Jill obviously had to scrap the bottom of the barrel to find anything to attack Alex with. Really I find it totally hypocritical for anyone to slam Alex for these and yet be okay with Kelly or any other woman who poses nude. It’s not something I would personally do, but it doesn’t make me think less of Alex because she did. And the ironic and hypocritical thing to Jills’ reaction is…….she has the same PR people that work with the likes of Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton. Both who have pornographic sex tapes! I’m sure Jill would not be offended by their antics if it meant she could hang in their circle of friends.

        • jennifer says:

          Also Alex’s pics were taken 10 weeks after having Johan…props to her for looking so flipping good!

            Not sure why people do this but chalk it up to me being old fashioned. But if these were taken for their “private collection” then how did they find their way to the Internet?

            I think it is safe to assume that Alex and Simon are as ambitious as Jill but merely going about it less aggressively.

            • HD says:

              She mentioned something about the photographer releasing them and not he or her husband. At least I thought she did on the reunion last season and they said since they were coming out they embraced it which I am sure means got a profit from it. Something like that was said. Maybe I heard wrong…

              At any rate, I do believe they were compensated and they enjoyed the perks of having those photos out. As much as I enjoy Alex let us not forget that she and her husband were scouring the newspapers to find photos that she was in during the first season they appeared on the show. They like the fame and the attention. JMO.

              • error 404 says:

                She said in the radio interview linked above that she neither authorized it’s release, nor was she compensated.

                They contacted a lawyer and the police, but decided to just let it go and embrace it rather than spend $1,000s in legal fees and god knows how many months/years of time.

                Once they’re out, they’re out.

            • Jennifer says:

              There is a misconception that u own photos taken of you- not true, the photographer owns them so my guess he released them after she got famous and as previously said they decided not worth the fight because once they out, they out

  72. CuckooforCocoaPuffs says:

    Kelly has often said that she needed to “police” the other women…..which was a pretty weird concept, in my opinion…. who made her the boss? I keep thinking that maybe Jill told her that her job was to “police” them and report back to her each day.

    • I’m sure Jill had a hand in that as well as stirring up Kellys’ paranoia. I can’t remember which of the ladies said it but Kellys” idea of policing them was not trying to stop gossip but her trying to control what they said about her!

      • lillybee says:

        Then at the lunch when Kelly said that Jill replied “so they wouldn’t steal your jellybeans.

    I really wish Bravo had had Kelly sit far enough away from Jizz that she couldn’t be influenced by her on the Reunion show. That would have been highly revealing. She might even have had another melt down. By melt down I mean what happens when she has to think for herself. She can’t.

      This is just Kelly throwing the idea out there for the rumor mill. But Kelly wanting her own show is a far cry from Kelly actually getting her own show.

      Bravo took a chance with Bethenny, but, in their favor are the facts that Bethenny’s following is HUGE, and Bethenny actually has a life that women can relate to.

      Kelly, on the other hand, has no real business, no real charitable efforts, no husband, kids who clearly can’t stand her, and she’s nuts. So, watching some halfwit run around NY with a camera phone and popping in and out of parties where she can’t even carry on an intelligent conversation isn’t a sellable concept. Smart, dynamic, modern women don’t relate to Kelly-we’ve seen that through HW’s. And Kelly is a liability, given her stupidity, her mental issues, and her possible drug use.

      I sincerely doubt that Bravo would go the expense of putting together a Kelly show. The most she might be able to put together is a local station program, like that Over The Hedge? one.

      • LynnNChicago says:

        I totally agree, no way Bravo would give that woman her own show, it maybe a local NY cable show or like you said an internet show.

      Oh lord, please let it be true! I say this only for the fact that hopefully if she does get her own show on who-knows-what channel that she will magically disappear on from the HW show and maybe Bethenny will be back. Now that’s the show I want to see. BRAS and then the the pathetic JZ. LuAnn will probably drift towards the BRAS as she saw what a sinking ship JZ was on.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

    Caution: non-sequitur ahead.

    DId anybody else notice the way Kelly pronounced her own name at the reunion. I’m pretty sure I’ve heard her say her name before – being that she talks almost nonstop about how wonderful she is – but this pronunciation was different than what I’ve heard from her before. It sounded like she was calling herself Kelly Killoren “ben-SEE-moan” with a big accent on that middle syllable. There’s nothing that chick could do that would surprise me too much, but still, that was odd.

    Ew, I just had a horrible, horrible thought. Even though I swear to God, Buddha and Allah that I will not watch the RHoNYC if either Jill or Kelly is back next season, maybe we’d all be better off if Jill stays on the show anyway. At this point she’s such a ravenous famewhore that she’d do almost anything to get attention. If she’s out of the limelight for too long, her desperation might cause her to do something dangerous – dangerous to everyone in this country – nay, to everyone on this planet! If she were fired from the show I could totally see her “leaking” a sex tape in order to get some attention. Shudder!

      I’m thinking she was inspired by the evil shrine she keeps of Bethenny hidden in the secret room of her closet. All of the animal sacrifices she has made to the evil gods to give her Bethenny’s life had to be used somehow, thus she collected the feathers from the carcases she sacrificed and made some purdy bangles.

      Yet again she’s not even original. If anyone watches American Idol they can see that people like Lilly Scott and Crystal Bowersox have been wearing the feather jewelry. Looks like Kelly is a day late and a dollar short of doing what’s in style.

        There’s a good joke lurking about my head – Kelly’s prior jewerly line being based on Owls and her new Jewerly line is being made out of Owls.

    And one other thing, after clicking through some photos from the “gum berry” fairy Queen….why wasn’t the whole “I’m posing for Playboy at 41” issue addressed on any of the reunion shows? Wasn’t it unearthed that she posed for those pics a long time ago and not anytime recently??

    On Jill’s FB there is a comment about a petition to keep Jill:

    It was started three days ago and has only 50 signatures. hahahahah!
    The goal is 100,000. Wasn’t there a petition to kick Jill off the show? If so, does anyone know how many signatures there were?

        Here’s my comment:

        Please, please, please remove Jill from the show. To allow her to stay only rewards her HORRIBLE behavior. No one wants to see a braying, bullying, obnoxious, rude and fat woman attempt to tell others how to run their lives — well, unless you make her survive “WipeOut” [on ABC] first.

    Wow, vacation really takes its toll! I’ve spent the last 3 days watching the reunions and reading the blogs.

    I was disappointed we didn’t get more clarification but not really surprised. The looks exchanged by Andy and Bethenny were the best. Unfortunately, trying to reason with Kelly was never going to work so no one really went after her. And Jill……………..well, she was just a hot mess. She has it in for Alex — no way she isn’t going after that family full throttle! I feel for them.

    Anyway, good to be back and love reading your blogs, Lynn and all of the comments!

            So you bring up a very interesting aspect of the Housewives and their political affiliations. I think we can safely assume that NYC and Atlanta are Democrats. The OC and some of Jersey are Republicans. Anyone else care to speculate?

    Wow Steve, did you know that Carly is recovering from cancer. It is not a haircut, it’s her hair growing back in after chemo. Makes you look like a fool doesn’t it? I agree with my conservative friends, it is tit for tat when it comes to political parties making a slip of the tongue. How about that Biden? How about the Rev. Jesse Jackson making a nasty comment about Obama (thought mike was off) or Al Sharpton and his cannon mouth. So we agree? Dumb comments are made by everyone and we’ll get back on the subject?

  87. Adgirl says:

    Re: Newsweek column. Thanks HD.
    ‘…. there’s actually a biological reason why grown women aren’t supposed to act this way. The part of the brain that controls the ability to recognize future consequences of your actions and to choose between good and bad behavior reaches maturity at about age 25.’

    So, we can deduce Jill’s brain maturity was held back and has been repeating the 9th grade for 30 years? See! That’s the problem with social promotions in school (passing the student to the next grade even if they are unqualified).

    • UpperWestSideDude says:

      perhaps she’s menopausal. hot flashes can make you do the darndest things. I am surprised she didn’t pull the menopause card at the reunion. 🙂

  88. Adgirl says:

    I might add that the twalk of Jill’s current social/professional tirades are due to her lack of friends in school is backwards. She didn’t have friends because her young school peers recognized a dangerous shit stirrer even then. Smartly they cut her from the herd. A behavior she has been trying to execute upon Bethenny and now Alex.

  89. Tootsie says:

    Well said, Adgirl. She certainly has honed her craft for 30 years and still it bites her in the arsh. She is so dumb she keeps repeating the same mistakes hoping for a different result.

  90. anutha hata says:

    Alright, I have been wondering about something, and that is, what -if Jill does come back for season 4?
    What could Bravo possibly give the viewers, that we would want to see?
    More insincere, forced apologies? (no)
    Jill makes a comeback/renewal? (no)
    Jill jumps out a window? (no)
    Any way that I try to play the story through, I just cannot find a story or plot-line with Jill, that would give any satisfaction. I probably don’t have a good imagination, and I know that real life is stranger than fiction, so something interesting could happen, but I don’t see how Bravo could work Jill’s story/character in any way except the obvious, not invite her back, that would bring a sense of closure to this season’s storyline.
    What I want to see as a viewer, is invisible Jill. The one who’s 15 minutes are up. And nothing less than that would give me some satisfaction with this program.
    Anybody have any ideas about how Bravo could leave Jill on in Season 4, but, not alienate the audience completely?

    • Jenni says:

      I’m with you, I can’t think of any side of Jill that I would want to watch.

    • CuckooforCocoaPuffs says:

      Well, we could watch Jill try to decimate the careers and livelihoods of Silex, fail, cry about how they weren’t true friends (and when asked about when she said they were never friends she could yell “Roll the tape!”….
      We could watch her try to make sense of her new and only friend, Kelly….
      We could watch her humiliate herself trying to ingratiate herself with Sonja and Luanne, who clearly recognizes she hitched her wagon to the wrong star and recognizes that Sonja is in a different class altogether than JZ….
      We could watch her decide that perhaps she and Bawby should release a sex tape – filmed in Zarin Fabrics….
      We could watch her struggle into a size 1 dress – one of my favorites…
      We could watch as her toxic behaviour alienates even Bawby and she becomes the newest single, swinging housewife, and end up with Coerte, Luanne’s castoff…

  91. Jenni says:

    How do ya’ll get those little smily faces on your posts?

  92. Bravo fan says:

    I was reading upthread from earlier today. Some of you wrote that on Bravo’s blogs’ Jill’s comments were all pro Jill. I could not believe it. I wrote Andy and I wrote on Jills blog saying how could there only be positve comments. Well, I guess otheres must have written the same complaint because today the negative comments started flowing in. In fact there were even comments saying they won’t watch if Jill comes back. Maybe Bravo does listen or are they setting us up to say she is not coming back. No, that would be may be asking too much.

  93. zoekayla says:

    well, I got my MRI results (thanks Shadows and anniieee for the good wishes). I have a cyst in my spinal column that is pressing on my nerves. It will require surgery, but as to when…that is unknown. The ortho surgeon says he only sees 1-2 of these a year. When the steroids and pain meds stop being effective, I imagine it will be the option I’ll be left with. Meanwhile I will work with a nutritionist to lose weight and begin hatha yoga to build my core strength. I used to be a gymnast, so I will enjoy that – building on the flexibility I still have.
    Boy, do I need this site as my daily distraction! I can’t wait to see what Lynn has to say about WWHL tonight and Danielle’s entry into the bravolebrity sing-off… she can’t be much worse than Kim or Lulu. I am also watching other reality shows, so Lynn don’t hesistate to “go there”. I would enjoy reading any blog you write!

        If you can and insurance allows, highly recommend you get second opinion). I hated my first surgeon and the results weren’t so great (hence surgery No. 2). You need someone you feel really good about. I’ll keep you in my thoughts and hope you come out of it better (as I did — I didn’t have a cyst, just some popped disks). Still…take it easy and good luck!

    • Char212 says:

        LOL at different opinions. I’m not a medical person and in MY case, the herniated disks were making my hands numb and since I work with my hands, didn’t want to risk permanent damage.
        Your situation could be entirely different. I do highly recommend second opinion no matter what. The surgeon I see now is competent and caring. Love him.

      • anniieee says:

      He is such a slimetart…..he sees a way to continue to stir the Jill vs Bethenny fight (which is so ohvah!!) so he can slide a few more blogs in without doing any real work or coming up with something that is new! Jill gave him up for adoption and he found her!!!!

  98. FredTheCatTravels says:

    “””But in addition to that, it’s being said that Alex just doesn’t resonate with viewers like the other housewives do. A tipster says, “Viewers don’t have a positive reaction to them, so they’re easily replaceable at this point. Also, they don’t really fit in with the other wives. All of the other women’s story lines have interwoven, yet Alex and Simon have kept theirs separate. It isn’t nearly as interesting as the other Housewives’.”””

    That quote is almost verbatim what Jill Zarin fed to the tabloids last fall.

    Until the words come out of Andy Cohens mouth, I don’t believe this for a second.

  99. error 404 says:

    OK, I know that Jill started this whole “Alex is getting fired” thing. She also started the whole “Jen could be her replacement” rumor too. But, why do people buy any of it?

    All the other franchises have 5 housewives. NY got 6 when they added Kiki, and she had a disastrous first season. The viewers hated her, the housewives hated her, I bet even the crew hated her. Yet they didn’t fire her. Then she went to VU and had a nervous breakdown on camera. She had to be escorted home. How many people do you know lose it and have to be escorted out of work, and still keep their jobs. None, right.

    Then they added Sonja, so now they have 7. So. Since they’ve never once fired a housewives, certainly not on NY, and I don’t think on any other show either. A few left on OC, but that was by choice, or at least they said. So, with Bethenny having her own show and busy, and Kiki clearly mentally ill, why, if they fired anyone, would they chose Alex? It makes no sense.

    But Jill must be very happy that her dirty little plant has blossomed into the talk of the web. Who’s gonna get fired from RHoNY? Who’s gonna get fired from RHoNY?

    • FredTheCatTravels says:

      error, I think all the OC Housewives need to go away. What other plots could they possibly have? Whom else could Slade date? There isn’t anything there especially with the real deal Beverly Hills on deck.

      That said, I think NY could easily have ten housewives because there is just so much going on in the city. Instead of being valued for being social butterflies, people are valued for their business accumen, their value as an artist, actor, philantropist, etc.

      Atlanta is about on the same level as the OC. What else can they do? They’ve all lost their homes and their Ath-a-lete husbands.

      Find another city.

      Will not watch DC because I do not believe in rewarding the Salihis for crashing the White House.

      • CuckooforCocoaPuffs says:

        As long time Atlanta resident, I couldn’t watch the Atlanta franchise at all. The women they chose didn’t represent even a tiny cross-section of the population, and they could have been Cleveland or Houston or Minneapolis. It’s funny, because ATL is still a small town in many ways, and if they had captured the old money/old south along with the player’s wives, it might have been really interesting. The people they chose were all sort of caricatures. Maybe NY people and OC people feel the same. I’ve watched a little OC and only the last season of NY, so I don’t really know how well they represent.

        • desertgal66 says:

          Amen to that! I’ve said before, as a resident of the South, that my main objection to the Atlanta franchise is that, with the exception of Kandi Burress, it misrepresents women of the South. The only other “authentic” Southerner on the show is NeNe Leakes, and she’s more a caricature of Southern women than a genuine steel magnolia.

          • FredTheCatTravels says:

            My pilates instructor told me that the Atlanta housewives don’t even live in Atlanta?

            I thought Kim at least had a Buckhead townhouse.

            • CuckooforCocoaPuffs says:

              I think that is true, although I am not sure where Kandi lives. Mostly, they were ex-urban housewives.

              Atlanta is a really interesting place, with the old south/new money dichotomy that could have been really interesting. Of course, it might have touched on race and class,, and been too serious, but it certainly could have been more representative of the culture here.

            • Nasus Nemak says:

              I believe that Kim lives in Duluth, which is well outside the Perimeter, therefore, not Atl. There are many nouveau riche communities out there.
              filled with McMansions. Huge house, ornate, but no property just a postage stamp lot. Twenty five years ago, farmland.
              As a native of the area, I was mortified to see these women representing Atlanta. It convinced me that the OC women and the NYC women do not represent their locales either.
              Whew! must be a hot flash, I’m channeling Ramona and speaking out.

        • Free Ginger (formerly known as wolverinedg) says:

          The women they chose were mostly all trash (with one or two exceptions), especially Kim. Anyone raised in the South recognized that immediately. Well-bred women of ANY social class in the South do NOT act the way the ATL ladies did.

      • kats2 says:

        I agree with this “Will not watch DC because I do not believe in rewarding the Salihis for crashing the White House.”

        I’m not real happy with Bravo giving them this opportunity and it shows how low Bravo will go to attrack crazy viewers.

      • UpperWestSideDude says:

        I will definitely watch DC. They will be far more interesting than the Jersey or Atlanta wives. The blame should be place on the Secret Service and Desiree Rogers for letting the Salahis in. This is one of the primary reasons Ms. Rogers was let go. Trust me, I have the inside story on this one…

        • kats2 says:

          I dont’ agree they should not have attended the event and they should not be on a TV show. I agree that others could have stopped it or prevented but I don’t think they should be rewarded for it.

          • UpperWestSideDude says:

            I agree they shouldn’t be awarded for it. However, I read an interview with Andy Cohen this weekend and he said if he had pulled the Salahis from the DC cast then they would have had to pull the entire show. Apparently the Salahis storyline in intertwined with the entire cast. The MIchale Salahi is a real piece of work. I read she brags about having been a Washington Redskins cheerleader and goes to all of their reunions. However, nobody can ever recall seeing her on the squad.

        • I would love to hear that story!

          • UpperWestSideDude says:

            I have a buddy of mine who works in the West Wing. He told me that the knives were out for Ms. Rogers when she did that Vogue photo shoot in the White House. She also raised hackles when she mentioned “branding” the Presidency which is all a big no-no in official Washington. The last straw was the State Dinner because she was busy being photographed and mingling with the guest. Social Secretaries are NEVER to do that during official White House functions and she was the first to break that rule.

      Quinn from OC & DeShawn from ATL weren’t asked back due to boring/lack of storyline. That isn’t the same as leaving on their own. Can we get Kelly not asked back due to Bitch is CRAZY??!!

      I would also like Tamra, Lynne, Lisa, & NeNe not asked back because they are broke.

      I also want to suggest Slade Smiley’s slimey ass never, ever grace our TVs again.

      • desertgal66 says:

        Lisa is broke?

        On the OC show, I’d like to see them revamp the entire cast. Tamra, Lynne, Gretchen are boring. Vicki’s storyline is pretty much played out, unless we want to watch some more insurance get-togethers, and, frankly, watching my oven self clean is more interesting. Alexis is just…yuck. She and her boorish husband give me the creeps.

        Atlanta: I’d like to wave goodbye to NeNe, Sheree, and Kim. Kandi I love, and I do like Lisa.

        New York: Alex, Ramona, and Sonja, I’d love to see remain on the show. LuAnn…meh. If she drops the Countess crap, and starts revealing her inner self, I think LuAnn would be cool to watch. The segments where she introduced Jacques to the ladies and was talking to him herself-she revealed a rather sweet and natural side which I really liked. As long as she stops singing. Please make her stop singing.

        New Jersey: Can the whole show. It sucks.

        DC: I don’t want to watch the Salahis, so I’ll give the whole show a miss.

        • Quincy IL says:

          I read that Jeanne Keough is returning.

        • @desertgal66 I agree with everything you said…except Atlanta. I still like NeNe though she has “gone Hollywood”. Don’t know why but I’d like to see her stay. Oh– and Kandi gets under my skin so she’s a NO. Other than that, ditto!

    I found this response to Alex’s blog interesting :

    “New City
    Never watched this show.Don’t know who Alex and her husband are. Never even heard of them until Friday night when they sat directly in front of us at the Staten Island Yankee Game. However, my wife was so excited when she met Alex. They appear to be very nice. I had to drive home so I only was able to drink 1-beer. However, these folks certainly enjoyed the cold ones as they certainly sucked down a few—and believe me, I wish I could have. Anyway, they seem very nice and down to earth and were extremely polite to all the folks around them. Her 2-boys were talking and being silly with my son and his friend most of the game. Very well adjusted kids and certainly very mature for their age….Anyway, I think I will watch the next show just to see what it’s all about.”

    Just a nice family it seems. Poor Jill must be chewing her knuckes off at this point.

      I read a blog about Kiki’s Hampton house for sale, and they went off on how hard all on the SS was going to be to clean, in a very funny way.

    Who else is not surpised by the fact that Caroline shaves her face everyday? She reminds me of teen wolf.

  105. Came across this golden nugget when researching for the piece I wrote on my blog titled, “What the F is wrong with Kelly Killoren Bensimon?!” Lol! It was filmed before season 3 aired on television. Boy were they (the mean girls) cocky…esp Kelly. OMG. She hasn’t changed but Jill’s tune sure has. At least on film. Wow.

    • RileyKitty says:

      I crack up whenever I come across any of the preseason interviews these 3 did. It firms up all belief that Jill thought people would take her side over Bethenny’s in this middle school drama Jill cooked up.

      • @RileyKitty Exactly! She thought she was going to shoot right out of the atmostphere stardom-wise after season 3. Guess she was convinced Kelly was going to help her squash Bethenny into nothing-ness. WRONG!

        I was watching some vid on Kelly on YouTube (Again for my piece.. on my blog. Feel free to check it out and comment 🙂 Anyway, she’s thanking all the ladies very graciously and then thanks Jill for inviting or getting her on the show. I can’t help to think that this was Jill’s plan all along. To annihilate Bethenny– even from season 2. Afterall, though they seemed to be friends, Bethenny’s popularity was getting bigger and bigger among the fans. Though Jill kept her plastic smile and invites and bff persona, behind the scenes she wanted to bring her down all along. Kelly from the start has been antagonistic towards Bethenny. Jill invited/ arranged for her to be on the show. Hmmmm…

        • Jennifer says:

          Wait Kelly says Jill got her on show? She tweeted at one point that Jill DID NOT get her on but go everyone else…. This chick bothers me cuz she is such a liar!!!!!! UGH

      • Ches says:

        I think Kelly, when they close up on her face, looks high as a kite.

    • error 404 says:

      that was painful.

      • Error, I agree. Very painful to watch. I cringe whenever they get to talking about Bethenny, Kelly, the whole Jill Bethenny feud because. I want to jump in and scream “they’re all full of shyat!”

    • Char212 says:

      Watching this they did and do act light high school girls. It’s like they think they are the cool girls in class. I don’t know when the interview took place but they mentioned Kelly’s breakdown so either they knew it was coming or the interview took place not too long ago. The impression I get though (if it took place after) is that they were trying to act like the reputation they got and the bad press doesn’t bother them at all. Deep down though it bothers the hell out of them and they are trying to cover up the hurt and disappointment.

      • The interview was like the day before the season aired… Notice Jill nodding her head in agreement to EVERYTHING Kelly said. Lol! She’s such a ‘tard!

    Season 4 Jill Zarin: The only benefit to her being on next season would be if Sonja and LuAnn slam her. It would warm my cold lil’ heart if she dissed by the two women she believes are above her socially.
    Then all Jill will have is Kooky to have sleep overs and make cute little dresses for their dollys. In the morning they’ll fix burnt pancakes.

  108. Adgirl says:

    Quinn & DeShawn were not the only ones not invited back. Jeanna OC was not offerred a contract last season until filming was underway for some time. Kara complained about it to the OC Register. Jeanna and Bravo came to terms for a few appearances where Jeanna bowed out because she was “tired” of the drama.
    I’ve heard she may return this season. Probably because last season was so stale and Bravo has trouble finding OC women.

  109. RileyKitty says:

    Anyone else see Zarin Fabrics on Design Star last night?

    • Quincy IL says:

      I did. The blue drapes in the girls bedroom looked like Jill’s work.

    • zoekayla says:

      yes, I did…were those not 2 ugleee designs? I preferred the “losing” looks over the men’s team’s; however, they worked better together.

    For some reason, I keep glossing over the actual fallout created by Jill’s personal behavior, on and off camera. The conversations tend to include those who are directly affected, cast mates, Alana, Lynn. Jill’s downfall may be on a much larger scale than we poor plebeians could muster with our snide remarks.

    The first real test will be this summer in the Hamptons. How many invitations will Jill receive? How many charities will she attend? If she calls to buy a table for a charitable dinner, will she be told I’m sorry, we are booked? Will she then stoop to having someone else buy said table so she can go as their guest? Who will quietly shun her at said party, reviving memories of a certain Virgin Island trip?

    Yes, and how many parties will she have? Remember, she no longer has the right to summer at her old address. She’s going to have to rent one. Will it be ostentatious? Understated? A little three room cottage next to the local Crab Shak (We’re open til midnight)? A pristine property adjacent to the public beach access?

    The social papers to watch this season will have NY zip codes attached, no doubt.

    • Lol!!! Wish we could have film on that. That’d be an idea for a new show for Jill. Jill’s Summer in the Hamptons, The Aftermath. Lol!

      I find that people, especially celebrities and “socialite types” still embrace Jill because they didn’t watch the damn show. They just know who she is and give the hollywood kiss kiss treatment, etc.. She will probably be the toast of the town because of all the press. Sad.

    • Quincy IL says:

      Ramona takes a lot of shit from Jill and still invites her to events. I think that their social circle of friends is not as much about friendship as being seen.

      I’m not inviting Jill to my 4th party.

  112. This is the best one yet. Says it all!

  113. Adgirl says:

    You are correct that she may have social doors shut to her.
    However, Jill may be an attraction this year! Look at all of the press. She’s living freak show. She isn’t with the top tier old money set so the social punishment of negative publicity may not apply to the Zarins.

    I’d certainly attend a charity event if I had the chance to witness Jill indulging in a screaming match with the hostess about seating arrangement!

  114. Squirrels says:

    Somehow I can’t believe the NY social circle wants any publicity except good publicity. They all have businesses/ RE dealings, etc. within the city proper and outer lying suburbs. Their general sense of entitlement would never allow scandals to hit main stream print rags. Where Alex is wrong is, “status” isn’t everything, power is everything.

    Of course, Jill may be different. She could be used as the poster girl for “how to destroy your family’s reputation in only six months”, and make no mistake – those old money New Yorkers know how to get a point across. In Jill’s case the question remains, how subtle will the summer gang be?

  115. Somebody just left jill’s book a 1-star review and called her a bimbo several times. I doubt that review will stay up long. 😛

    Can we start an online campaign to get Jill (and Kelly) off the show? Or they do return, they can only be filmed in therapy sessions – and not with other castmates. If this is the case and Bethenny returns, I’ll stay tuned.

  118. TLM says:

    It’s sort of odd that Count Alex would have no problem sleeping with a black Ethiopian woman and a Native American woman (Luann), yet he’s bent out of shape with Jews. Wow, it must really be killing him that L is not only seriously dating a Jewish guy, but that Jill Zarin is her best friend. Thanks to his attitude, I’m sure even more Americans will hate the French.

  119. Pamela Dee says:

    I kind of like Jill Zarin to be on the show. It certainly isn’t dull because you want to kick her Jewish princess-style butt. Her comment about not being able to film with Alex (reumion show) sort of said it all, she’s still the same ol’ Jill. Her ilk do not EVAH see themselves. Again, I really don’t hate her and do get a kick out of her style and watching her teeter her 40++ year legs around in those shoes meant only to sit in and look good on a bar stool! She does a nice icerink twirl, though. She is cute as a button and hopefully she’ll start to see herself as the vapid twit she really is and former fans like me will enjoy her escapades.

    I adore Alex. I don’t think she should have delivered it, though. Bethenny seemed to just go along with it, so it was better camera fare than smart.

    Ramona is a hoot. She’s a doll and has that spitfire, too.

    Luann IS a tad boring and why would she kiss that “icky” writer? He made me recoil, at least what I saw of him.

    Sonja is wonderful. Seems forthright and above-board. Hope she doesn’t change.

    Kelly. She’s a train wreck to be sure. Too bad. She’s pretty and all that, but definately has some major personality disorder (I’m being kind). I think she should retire and take care of her two lovely girls.

    Bethenny is a doll, too. However, she doesn’t need to be so brutally honest with people. FINESSE is sometimes better, in the long run.
