I Hate Jill Zarin Real Housewives of NY Lost Footage June 25, 2010

I Hate Jill Zarin                   RHONY Lost Footage                      June 25, 2010

No surprises here, these were bits and pieces of the show that were in no particular order, in fact, it didn’t really matter what order they were in.   It is clear to me why these scenes were cut out of the original show and it is a little offensive that Bravo decided that they were good enough to put together into a show that we had to sit through for an hour. 

The majority of these scenes were on Bravotv.com as “bonus scenes” throughout the season. 

The scene showing Bethenny, Alex and Ramona shopping with their significant others was one I hadn’t seen before and underscores what we’ve all been saying about the show all season, THIS is what we want to see, the ladies laughing and enjoying one another!  When I find myself smiling or laughing along with the housewives, rather than being so damn frustrated I want to throw the remote right through the screen, then I know it’s what I want to see!  I do get why they cut that scene, wherever they were it was extremely annoying as there was constant flashing going off in their faces that they had to try to ignore.  Clearly it was either open to the public or there was a lot of press there, the flashes were distracting. 

Ramona’s birthday party was on Bravo’s web site in the past and I remember that there was actually a bit showing Ramona choosing pieces of jewelry from her collection for each of her guests, she put them in the goody bags in front of each person’s place setting.  She made an effort to choose pieces that she thought each guest would like and that was one of the reasons she was upset about Kelly and Jill trying to change the seating. 

Bravo made it seem as though Ramona was just being unreasonable.  Jill seemed to let it go but Kelly argued beyond what a normal person would do.  When they asked Ramona if she minded that they change seats, her response of “yes, I do mind” should have been enough to end the conversation.  Kelly needs her crutch, she cannot function in proper social situations and needed to be next to Jill in order to be comfortable.    Jill, as a hostess herself, and knowing Ramona as she does, shouldn’t have even asked in the first place!  One thing I did notice was the only missing housewife was Bethenny, Ramona announced that everyone she invited, came to the party. 

Seeing Kelly as a hostess, again, already viewed on Bravo’s site, didn’t surprise me at all.  To serve jelly beans with wine along with the typical snacks was normal to Kelly.  Not to defend Kelly at all, but I can see that Luann would make people uncomfortable in their own home.  She is the most passive aggressive person I have ever seen!  The mother comment was surprising, but since that is the first time Kelly’s ever mentioned her, and we’ve never seen the woman,  we really can’t speculate but it is interesting to get a glimpse of Kelly’s opinion of her mother.  If she’s anything like Luann, it explains a lot.  Sonja and Luann, two single ladies talking about men and dating completely confused Kelly.  I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that Kelly will never have a serious man in her life, ever again!  Typical to see Kelly in the faded, bleached and torn jeans….augh! 

The Peta ad reveal was fun to watch, I hadn’t seen that before.  It was great that some of the ladies showed up to support Bethenny.  Alex, Simon, Jennifer Gilbert and Sonja Morgan were there in support of Bethenny.  I remember an interview that Bethenny did about this campaign, she said that all of the women on RHONY wear fur and I don’t think that they ALL do anymore, so it has made a difference, however small it may be.  Obviously we know that Kelly continues to wear fur, but she doesn’t harm any animals, she has the world’s only LIVE fur coat. 

I always wonder if the women come just to be on camera more or if they truly are being supportive.   For example, when Kelly showed at Bethenny’s Skinnygirl Margarita party, it certainly seemed as though she didn’t really want to be there but maybe just felt she wasn’t on camera enough.  Kelly didn’t have a story line this season to speak of, so she had to make one for herself.  I have noticed that there weren’t too many things that she missed out on attending!   The Virgin Island trip, however, she was forced to go! 

I did not want to see Ramona having a gross medical procedure done on her arm pits….yuk!  Enough said!

Kelly visiting Sonja felt to me like another one of those forced scenes in order to get these two ladies on screen.  Kelly telling Sonja to talk to her daughter and tell her “Mommy is too lazy to exercise so mommy had liposuction” is just ridiculous!   Great advice Kelly, let’s think of some things that Kelly should tell HER kids:  “Mommy turns people down to volume #2 because I can’t stand the white noise”.  “Mommy doesn’t understand when you tell me that I work hard for you due to the fact that drugs have fried my brain”.  “It is ok for Mommy to interrupt people when they’re talking because I have satchels of gold”.  “Mommy is allowed to tell people to ‘zip it’ because it hurts my brain when I have to try to understand adult conversations”.  “Mommy served you jelly beans for dinner because I can’t cook, would you rather have burnt pancakes?”  “Go ask the nanny!”  “I would never leave you to go to St. John again unless Andy Cohen forces me to”  “Kids, don’t be healthy, be healthful”  Ok, basically what I’m saying is that entire visit from Kelly to Sonja was very strange!

I think if there is one positive, kind thing that I can say about Jill Zarin, it would be that she loves and cares about her daughter.  However, her explanation that she purposely made a spectacle of herself while Ally was trying to study could be true, I get that Bravo isn’t going to film or air Jill making dinner quietly in the kitchen while Ally studied with a tutor.  That is not to say that Jill is the perfect mother, we all watched as she threw her kid to the wolves and blamed Ally for Baby-gate.  I can see why it was cut from the show. 

Kelly working out with Ramona was actually interesting.  We don’t hear Kelly talking about her ex-husband that often.  This was the first time I can remember her ever talking about her wedding, in fact, has anyone seen any wedding photos of Kelly and Gilles?  Curious, anyway, her talking about Eric Ripert being the chef at her wedding was curious as now both Kelly and Eric are on Bravo shows.  Kelly now has sensitive taste buds…ok Kelly!  It’s funny how Kelly was finally happy being with someone on St. John, calling Ramona “real” as they hung out.  Did Kelly notice that she did all the talking and Ramona said nothing?  I guess that is the only way to get along with Kelly, shut up and let her ramble..

So the one clip that everyone is talking about, the one that Jill seems to think is “funny”.  I don’t find it funny at all, I think it is completely disrespectful to Bobby Zarin for his wife to say, “If I’m feeling some jewelry you may be feeling something good later on”.  It is not only disrespectful, but really disgusting!  The way that this woman treats her husband is really horrible!  Is this another ridiculous attempt to throw out funny one liners like Bethenny?  If I thought for one moment that it didn’t ring true, I would give her the benefit of the doubt, but Jill Zarin clearly wants jewelry, money, clothes, vehicles, handbags, everything she can get her hands on and couldn’t care less about how hard her husband works to get the money to buy her all this stuff!  She is an ungrateful ogre!  Season two Kelly admired the rock on Jill’s hand which had to be 6-7 carats at least.  Jill then mentioned that this was the “baby” ring and the “mama” ring was in the vault…..augh!  The woman makes me sick!

Love the purple gown’s that Alex wore in the fashion show.  I thought Ramona was being a sanctimonious beotch the way that she acted like she was doing Alex a favor by staying for the fashion show that she had already agreed to attend.  WTF Ramona?  Then to sit and criticize Alex, the way she walked, her nervous walk and her frightened face.  I wanted to smack Ramona and play her own walk for her over and over and make her apologize to Alex as well. 

It was disappointing that they cut off the reunion part where they discussed the speakerphone call between Jill and Bethenny.  The started to discuss it and went over what should have happened when Jill called Ramona and allowed Luann to listen in.  I’m sure that they discussed the phone call we all wanted to hear about, but Bravo chose to cut that out. 

Jill got slammed throughout the reunion episodes, as far as I’m concerned, she deserved every bit of it, but that is one thing that I really wanted to hear her try to defend.  The way she rolled her eyes at everything Bethenny said and Luann trying to get Jill to lie to Bethenny about being alone was reprehensible and viewers should have been allowed to hear the ladies discuss that. 

Probably the best part of the lost footage episode was seeing dopey Kelly get hit in the head with a tennis ball!  Maybe paying attention on the tennis court isn’t such a bad idea? 

Here are some Tweets from Jennifer Gilbert during the lost footage episode:

I’m surious to see the lost footage on the RHofNYC. Considering I had so much lost footage, I wonder if I’m in anyof it!!!

Girls, love you, but moving place cards is sooo anoying! As a party planner, I kill those people!

Bethennys butt did look amazing in times sq.. They would never want my butt up there. Rock on bethenny!

What a jumbled blog, so many different things going on at all different times in the series.  I think we’re finally, completely DONE with The Real Housewives of New York Season Three.  It was a long, long season and we’ll probably continue to discuss what these women are doing on camera and off for a long time to come.

In the meantime, Bethenny’s Getting Married? will be fun dissect, and Top Chef, Work Of Art, hopefully New Jersey will improve, we have plenty of other shows to discuss! 

Bravo announced that The Real Housewives of DC will premier August 5 and have released a few short preview videos and bio’s of the ladies:  http://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-dc

Until Next Time…..

  1. MickeyMouth says:

    “So the one clip that everyone is talking about, the one that Jill seems to think is “funny”.”

    If it walks like a duck, talks like a duck ,then it’s a prostitution whore.

  2. AlternateReality says:

    Only Jill could see “charm” in that clip.

  3. Zipit Zarin says:

    Ok, I’m going to look stupid and ask anyway. What is a prostitution whore? 😛

    • adioslunatic says:

      That’s what Teresa from RHNJ called Danielle during the infamous table flipping finale of last season.

    • MickeyMouth says:

      Teresa from RHONJ’s description of Danielle.
      A hooker or in other words what Jill Zarin was doing when she was trading jewelry for sex.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      It is a term that exists only in Teresa’s world

      • Tam5115 says:

        If Teresa even suspects you are calling her less than intelligent… she’ll flip a table at you and call you a prostitution whore… (whatever that is supposed to mean, since it’s redundancy at its best)

        Am I the only one who wishes she does this to Danielle next week and D punches her right in her hairy forehead?

  4. dancekrazy says:

    I warned everyone two nights ago to take an anti-nauseant before poor Bobby was “propositioned” by his own wife, God help him. What’s the expression?……”We know what you are, now we’re just negotiating price.”
    HELP! Am I seeing things??

    • Go To Sleep says:

      I doubt that was Jill…I’m almost certain she won’t be on Bethenny’s show…and I’m willing to bet they don’t speak at all now.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      LMAO Susan, no, I’m pretty sure that was not Jill’s hand anywhere near Bethenny’s belly! Bethenny has said in no uncertain terms that Jill will NOT be on her show! Yippie!!!

      • dancekrazy says:

        Thanks, Lynn. I could have sworn that was Zarin’s hand and her hair. Thank you for reassuring me.

    • No, it couldn’t have been her. Bethenny clearly said Jill would not be on her show.

    • tuzentswurth says:

      I think it was in yesterday’s blog, someone posted a link to a recent interview (done earlier this month) of Bethanny and she states that Alex and Ramona were around for different things and will be seen on the show, but that JZ is NOT in her life. Yipeeeee

    • Judi says:

      Bethenney said Jill would not be on when she was on WWHL a few weeks ago.

  5. adioslunatic says:

    Jill/Bobby/Jewelry = Too gross to watch. Really it gives women such a bad name. I like jewelry as much (or more) than the next woman, but that was just an EWWWW moment.

  6. Adios Lunatic says:

    And I’m pretty sure Kelly was wearing more on the tennis court than she wears to events……………and don’t even get me started on that crazy evening of cocktails with LuAnn and Sonja. What 40+ year old woman hasn’t had 2 people over to her home before? And brining Sonja a “cleanse” and telling her to confess to her daughter that she’s just lazy???? WTF? Who does things like that????

    • Waslurking says:

      I know……..wtf indeed!

    • error 404 says:

      Kiki’s an advocate, always educating. lol

      I know that the “super nanny” “child whisperer” is teaching her how to communicate with her daughters, but if I had a dollar for every time she admonished her cast mates on what to say or not say to their daughters, I’d be rich.

    • Jules says:

      Yeah, then Kelly says “Well, it’s important to look good, but it is more important to be a good person.” I wonder when Kelly is going to start doing that, because telling Sonja she is lazy, and telling her if she had it like she herself Kelly did, she wouldn’t be giving it away on the St. John’s trip, is clearly not my idea of someone being a good person.

    • Lilbit says:

      You know that after that procedure every nerve ending in Sonja’s abdomen were screaming. So what does a thoughtful friend do? Bring something that will make her colon go into spasms and have her running into the bathroom every 15 minutes.

  7. Waslurking says:

    Arugh……. I’m about 3 blogs and comments behind!
    No way I’m gonna catch up tonight so just wanted to
    let Lynn know I LOVE it here! It’s my go to place
    when I have the time……. Lynn you rock!
    As do all the regulars here.
    Thank you all!

  8. Go To Sleep says:

    Are you only doing Bravo shows? If not, you should consider Big Brother and Teen Mom (not sure how many people watch this show, but Season 2 trailer looks great!)

    • LynnNChicago says:

      Yes, in fact I love Big Brother and will probably add that too! 🙂

      • Zipit Zarin says:

        Is Kell On Earth going to be on again? I love that show. That and The City.

        • Laura says:

          I sure hope there is a Season 2 of Kell on Earth. I’ll die w/o my Andrew M. fix….he just cracks me up!!!!
          I think it did pretty well and I recently did a survey through NBC/Bravo et al about the show so they were definitely looking for positive feedback and I gave them plenty!
          Love The City too – I really wish Olivia would take a flying leap off the Elle building and Erin has a front row seat lolol (kidding….kinda!)

      • Waslurking says:

        Are you getting the live feeds Lynn? Just curious.

      • anniieee says:

        awesome my favorite BB

        • Sha2000 says:

          There’s Big Brother After Dark on Showtime nightly from 12am to 3 am (est). Yes the season of no sleep will soon be upon me!

  9. dancekrazy says:

    Just one more comment about Kelly. Seeing the “workout” scene with Ramona, I noticed that Kelly seems to have “FLIGHT OF IDEAS” which is a common symptom of a psychosis. She jumps from one thing to another. Other symptoms are delusions, hearing voices, pressured speech, paranoia—all of which Kelly seems to have. The shame of this is that Jill, instead of staying behind for a couple of hours to meet Kelly at the airport and see that she was seen by a doctor, went to St. John even though she knew PRIOR TO FLIGHT that Kelly was in NYC. Remember, they had a private plane, if they wanted to leave later…..no problem; the pilot is at their disposal. With friends like Jill…………..(you know the rest). Also Jill feeds right into Kelly’s illness by agreeing with her about the behavior of the other women on the island. I feel sorry for Kelly, she is sick and someone better get her some help. JILL IS JUST SICKENING, AND I WISH SHE’D JUST GO AND LIVE IN THE DESERT SOMEWHERE AWAY FROM CAMERAS. AFGHANISTAN IS A THOUGHT!

    • dancekrazy says:

      I take it back. Our soldiers are there…..that would help the enemy. Sorry

      • Zipit Zarin says:


      • Lilbit says:

        Maybe we could let her loose on the Taliban and they’ll think she is our newest secret weapon….the war will be over and our troops will be home before Labor Day! We could get her to go by telling her Bethany was dieing for the job but we offered it to her instead…with this strategy we might get rid of Jill too! LOL

    • Waslurking says:

      NOOOOOOOOOO!! I live in the desert (AZ).
      Don’t want her here!

    • Squirrels says:

      I have to take point on one issue. I believe J & B took a commercial flight to St. Thomas. Then the boat to St. John. The private plane was plan B to get to St. Bart. Whether they took the plane that day or the day later, they had arranged for a pilot to be available for them.

      Remember, Jill said they were up at the crack of dawn flying nine hours, blah blah. Could be that included a stopover in Fla. Who knows the details. What we do know is Jill twists, flips and outright lies when the need strikes.

      • Robin says:

        And don’t forget, during all that travel she was unable to get a drink of water or use a bathroom!

      • Sha2000 says:

        It is along trip. Just the Boat ride from St. Thomas to St. John can take anywhere from 45mins to an hour…but so worth the trip. Bet the bulk of the trip was commercial too, but I’m sure she skipped coach : )

  10. I agreed with so much, if not all, of your blog Lynn. As I read, I was going yep, yep, yep. LOL!

    Hated the underarm scene. Gross!

    Jill’s jewelry scene was gross too. Not funny. Embarrassing to Bobby. At least Bobby put his foot down against the $3.5 million (or a little less) whatever piece of jewelry jill wanted. A necklace? Guess she’s not worth that much to Bobby.

    I hadn’t seen Ramona’s bday video on Bravo, so thanks for explaining why Ramona was so upset about jill trying to switch up the seating. That’s just so rude. Bravo’s bad for not showing Ramona’s placing her jewelry for each guest.

    • Waslurking says:

      I watched that ‘bonus’ vid…….was much shorter than
      what was shown.

    • error 404 says:

      but I swear Jill or Lulu or someone said during the birthday scene “they’re all the same” with regard to the gift bags. Typical.

    • Jules says:

      Boy, Jill is so ungrateful talking about how she always gets screwed because her birthday, the holidays, and their wedding anniversary all land back to back. What an ungrateful Beotch, HONESTLY. Poor Jill

  11. Waslurking says:

    The thing I noticed the most was the separate filming.
    Guess Jill got her way early on………. grrrrrrrrr!
    ( I didn’t become addicted to this show until I found your
    blog Lynn…….. so I’m late to the party.)
    Jill is a bitch, Kelly is just plain pathetic…ewwww, and BGM ROCKS!!

  12. AlternateReality says:

    kelly has mental illness and she is also mean and jealous. mental illness isn’t reserved for nice people. the way I see it, she destroyed any future she has career wise. there is not a company/corporation that would entrust anything to this woman. who would even use her as an endorser? she’s got millions and can live in her own little world.

    jill also. what does she have coming up? who would utilize her brand?

    it’s so strange to me that someone who has family, and husband and enough money never to have to fret or worry over paying a bill for the rest of her life to be so damn unhappy. this thing is always having a bad day. i have a feeling mental illness and jill are not strangers either.

    • Waslurking says:

      I spend 5 days a week at a day program for the mentally ill.
      “Serious Mentally Ill” no joke. Hell I’m one of them.
      Some are higher function……others not so much. But I’m here to
      tell you NONE of us are vicious like Kelly. She does NOT get a pass
      from me for her behavior.

      • Ches says:

        Someone had posted on another blog, in reference to Kelly, “Mental illness is no excuse for being an asshole.” So true.

      • tuzentswurth says:

        I still think most of her mental problems are the result of drug use.
        Whether that has made her more stupid than she was to begin with, not sure.

      • Tam5115 says:

        Yep. I also have a mental illness. I have Panic Disorder. Google that if you want to know. But those like Kelly, she makes others in her life suffer because of her mental illness. To continue to allow her to claim it’s a breakthrough, or that she’s just perfect… isn’t doing her or anyone else any good.

    • error 404 says:

      I don’t know when Jill divorced, but I have known other single mothers with “unusual” attachments to their only child daughters.
      Seriously? the “last first day of school”. Come on.

      • Waslurking says:

        Yet another excuse……… I’m not impressed

      • tuzentswurth says:

        I thought the first season was “seriously gross” when they kept pushing Ally at Bobby, especially since they were trying to encourage a relationship between the two when he had already been her stepfather for SEVEN YEARS. Ick, what’s with the “go be grateful, give him a hug, come on, he’s good to you and your mother” business. If she wants to keep her distance, let her. It was “like, seriously creepy , you guys.” I thought they might like make out with the tongue.

    • Char212 says:

      She’s unhappy because nothing is ever enough for her. She always wants more, more, more. She’s never satisfied with what she has and it wouldn’t surprise me if she talks Bobby out of that necklace someday too.

    • Squirrels says:

      It’s mean, but I have to say, any man who hitches himself to Kelly’s wagon is in for major WTF, or, is out to embezzle her. Con artists love Kelly types.

      Like I said, I know it’s mean to say.

  13. Adgirl says:

    At Kelly’s home in the Hamptons – wasn’t she the one who brought up dating (if I meet a great guy and ask him back here for cocktails…)? Why does she act all “I don’t like to talk about men and dating!”? So weird.
    However, I have to say in the lost footage epi Kelly wasn’t quite as strange as she did in VI. Guess that’s not sayin’ much.

    • error 404 says:

      Kik talks about men like a teenager does. She just wanted 1950s style dating advice, and Lulu and Sonja are pure 1970s sexual revolution. It was like;
      Q; “what should I offer him to drink?”
      A: “here’s how you sneak him up to your bed without other people in the house knowing”
      She’s the nerdy 13 yo girl who still plays with her dolls with the friends who have matured much faster and are into “necking”.

  14. Ches says:

    Had to post this pic. Thought you all would enjoy it.

    This person is pretty amusing in their recaps also. WARNING … They equally insult all the housewives in NY. But still amusing.

    • AlternateReality says:

      thank you…I needed that.

    • bamabelle57 says:

      I needed that, too, Ches… LOL

      Why did Jill have that little skating exhibition? It was weird for a grown woman to have on a skating outfit/skimpy dress, and do a “twirl” for friends and family? I’m sorry, I think that was just stupid. Why was Jill trying to show off her skating abilities when she has NONE, and admitted she hasn’t worn those skates since she was 9 years old? First of all, I don’t believe those were the same skates. Hasn’t her feet grown since she was 9?

      I loved it when that man yelled at her when she was practicing in Conn…. Hahahahaha, you could tell she was embarrassed… it was ridiculous of Jill to interfere when professional’s were trying to practice. Isn’t that when she couldn’t go into the bathroon because Kate Gosslin was in there?

      Another thing… I thought it was so stupid the way Jen Gilbert described Jill’s little twirl as “having a moment”… having what kind of moment? A “moment of stupidity”?

      • Jules says:

        Is it lost on everyone that Jill hates Sonja too? Every interview she gives when she talks about the two new housewives from this season she praises Jennifer all over the place, and acts like Sonja doesn’t even exist (doesn’t even mention her name). Probably because Sonja had the audacity to speak her mind, and say that it was inappropriate for Jill to show up at St John. I imagine the other reason is, because other than Sonja’s continual mention of sex, she’s a class act, unlike LuAnn. She is truly gracious, and not at all petty like Jill. I also suspect that she is thought far more highly of in NYC social circles than Jill is. Jill’s is not all together stupid, and has refrained from commenting on Sonja, because she knows she can’t be seen dishing yet another housewive, and she probably knows there is zero chance of Sonja being willing to play along with her games. Honestly, if you pay attention it is clear – Jill can’t play the connector her, and therefore has zero chance of trying to assert any kind of supremacy over Sonja.

        I love it. Stew on that Jill.

        • bamabelle57 says:

          You’re right. Jill’s not stupid enough to diss Sonja Morgan right now, but oh yeah, I can see her head spinning over all the good press Sonja’s getting.

          I don’t see those two getting along in Season~4… Sonja can go toe to toe with Jill and Jill knows that… HaHa!

          • Jules says:

            Jill is in for a tough time with Sonja, because I don’t think Jill is going to be able to ruffle Sonja’s feathers. So, Jill will once again end up looking bad, and she will be taking punches at someone who won’t fight back, and who won’t get mad. I’m looking foward to it.

          • dancekrazy says:

            I think Sonia is just feeling out the waters, and we’ll see a far more assertive Sonia next season. Neither she nor Jenifer seem to be much into the drama or the Jill game. I think that Jennifer is going to be a big snooze, though. But Sonia’s extroverted personality, I think, will keep us watching her scenes.
            To comment about Jill’s practice in Conneticut– what idiot skater practices in black velvet, and rhinestones??? She’s an idiot.

        • Ches says:

          I think you’re on to something about Jill and Sonja. But I think, there is no way possible, Jill will go up against her. No matter how you look at it, Jill’s first priorities are money and social status. And, although they are divorced, Sonja is a Morgan with a Morgan heir. And in New York Society the name Morgan means finance, old money wealth, power and social status.
          The name Zarin means fabric salesman, a lot less wealth, no real power, and crass, classless new money.
          And I think Jill realizes that Sonja could have her shunned like a prostitution whore at an Amish barnraising .
          Like all natural born manipulating bullies, Jill knows who she can take on and who she can’t.

          • Jules says:

            I think right now Jill is trying her level best not to address the Sonja issue at all, because I like you feel that – Sonja is a Morgan, and that name means something in New York society, and Zarin means fabric sales, and new money. Jill alienates Sonja and the Morgan clan, and she stands to send Zarin Fabrics right down the tubes with her, but unlike Jill, Sonja wouldn’t ask people to boycott Zarin’s, it would just happen (Sonja is liked). Unfortunately for Bobby, the problem is Jill doesn’t have much self control – it is going o be damn hard for Jill not to take a wack at her – she just can’t stop herself no matter how much is riding on it.

            Another issue I haven’t heard mentioned is that on the third installment of the Reunion, Jill is telling Alex she wasn’t mean to her this season, because she just never saw her this season. You know, hands flying in the air “I NEVER SAW YOU”. Now I have been thinking about this for days, and if NEVER means only on the opening episode on the yacht, both of the Gotham parties, the Saks event, Ramona’s TruRenewal event, Ramona’s vow renewal, Ramona’s Birthday party, LuAnn’s Cocktails and Couture party, St John, lunch at Alex’s house, and the party at Jennifers – yeah, I guess that means Jill never saw her this season. WHAT!!!!????? Does Jill ever even think before she speaks?????

            The viewers are not Kelly for godsake – we’ve been watching, and I for one have had a belly full of Jill.

              Yeah, Jill never saw Alex this season, or maybe she forgot, because Bravo hasn’t had a chance to get her that court reporter yet. Too bad Jill can’t manage to forget all these petty reasons she has for being mad at someone.

    Ramona’s birthday party was just before the trip and thus Bethenny would have been in LA with her dying dad and unable to attend, thus “uninvited” by Ramona who knew where she was and why.

    • Squirrels says:

      In fact, Alex said 2 days before the trip, so yes. Bethenny would not be in town, or in the process of coming home. Either way, not going to make the bday party.

      I would like to think Ramona invited her with the caveat , I know you can’t be here, I just want you to know I wish you could.

      Sorry, I got caught up in renewal stuff.

      • bamabelle57 says:

        I agree… Ramona wouldn’t leave Bethenny out. Beth must of been out of town or either just in and couldn’t make it. Maybe that’s why Bethenny brought a gift to Ramona’s house when she came there to try and talk to Jill.

        Great blog!

        Thanks for saying it.

        I can’t beleive her thinly veiled reference to those that have no family. Such a horrid low blow. She sucks.

        • bamabelle57 says:

          Who bullied Jill? Is she talking about the shocked faces of Bethenny, Ramona, Alex and Sonja when she CRASHED the party?

          Is she talking about how they didn’t want her to stay because she had refused to film with Bethanny all of season~3, then fought with Alex and Ramona? Jill herself turned down Ramona’s sincere invitation to her girls get-away in the first place.

          Is Jill talking about how she went to all this trouble and expense to show up in the VI when she was going there ANYWAY to take her daughter to meet her Dad?

          Is Jill claiming she was bullied because Ramona didn’t offer her a drink or bathroom? Was she bullied because Alex was shaking and Bethenny was crying? Was Jill being bullied because Ramona explained to her that she had other guests who accepted her invitation to celebrate her marriage and had been guests the whole 5 days… I’m sorry, Jill… if it was just me it would be okay for you to stay… I do have other guests to worry about. Is that being bullied? Or maybe Jill was bullied when Alex said “there’s been enough drama”.

          What was it? Was Jill being bullied because Alex said “Bethenny’s DONE”? Or was it when Alex finally told her off for gossiping about Bethenny’s Dad dying, and digging for information whe she/Jill made it clear to Bethenny… they WERE DONE!

          Someone in the media needs to get this straight. I understand Kelly says she was bullied-we saw she WAS NOT. But just WHO bullied Jill… I’m serious, I don’t understand!

          Didn’t the viewers see the show? Wasn’t it Bethenny who was bullied by Jill, LuAnn and Kelly? I think it was, except Bethenny herself doesn’t use that word. She say’s Jill tried to “SLAY” her when the cameras went up because she was jealous Bethenny got her own show!

          I know we’ve beat this subject too death, but just makes me soooooo mad to read all this nonsense Jill and Kelly are putting out there!

          • Jules says:

            Is it just me, but I am I the only one that was completely flabbergasted when Andy said that Jill faced a firing squad at St. John. That really made me mad – nothing like feeding into Jill’s falsehoods. There was no firing squad, just stunned silence that the peaceful trip they had all looked so forward to was again being thwarted – this time by Jill instead of Kelly. They had earned the right to enjoy themselves without further drama. Jill was being a self serving beotch as usually. Sure, she planned on having a sitdown with Bethenny about lets put our weapons down, but then again she was the only one that had weapons – Bethenny never did. I could have killed Andy when he agreed with her, and it only mad me angrier when they laughed at Sonja when she said Ramona had gotten up from her pedicure to talk to Jill.

    The jewelry incident: I thought what Jill said to Bobby sounded and came out very rehearsed. Which in my mind would mean Jill could care less about embarrassing her husband and would know she would have come across as a dirty classless whore.

    • RileyKitty says:

      It came across like Bobby only gets laid if he buys Jill jewelry. She came off very bad when bitching about the combined gift thing as well. She gets more money spent on her birthday gifts than a lot of people get spent on them in a lifetime, she needs to stop bitching.

      • Katiecoo says:

        Yeah, she always get “screwed” on her BD. I bet. Oh brother. I bet who’s getting “screwed” out of gifts (not to mention future inheritance) are Bobby’s kids and grandkids.

        This comment was probably just another one of those one-liners that she thought would be so funny and fell flat. Interestingly, since Bawby has had a prostate cancer operation, there’s probably not a whole lot of hanky panky going on there.

    my, my, my you ladies (& dude) have been busy!! I have been at baseball games every night. Mike’s (my son) team is on a winning streak. 🙂 It seems when i do get a free evening the darn power goes out. We have been getting hit by storms like crazy. Plus I am trying to read a book. (9th Judgment by James Patterson)

    Anyways, I am sick to death of Jill & her Hate-Alex campaign. It is old, tired & completely baseless. kind of like Jill herself. I do find it interesting that Jill & Kelly are BFFs. Lulu seems to be distancing herself. Too little, too late but I guess better than never. Lulu’s behavior has been appalling this season, backing Jill’s every move, but she can still redeem herself. I don’t know why she would bother because she is boring as hell but I am happy when anyone distances themselves from Jill.

    I hope to hell Ramona stops with the back & forth with Jill. She should know by now that Jill isn’t really her friend. Since her & Jill run in the same circle, maybe she needs to find a new circle. Jill really defines the old saying with friends like her who needs enemies.

    • error 404 says:

      does anyone remember that woman at Ramona’s labor day party that B called “the caterer” after she went off on B on how devastated Jill was by the feud she herself started. lol I don’t know how she does it, but Jill certainly inspires loyal savagery in her minions. So many are enlisted as “messengers” and they all take their jobs very seriously. She could be a cult leader!

      LuAnn is smart enough to know that she shouldn’t disagree with Sonja’s assessment of the situation in St John. LuAnn knows what the name Morgan means in in NYC, and I think we will be seeing a change of teams coming around for LuAnn. I was also glad LuAnn had the guts to challenge Kelly about instigating everything at St John. It is clear that LuAnn has seen the writing on the wall, and is bailing from team “MEAN and CRAZY”. So, it will be Jill and Crazy Kelly – what a team!!!!!

    Someone is mass-voting all good reviews of Silex or Bethenny books as “not helpful reviews.” They do it with Jill’s book too, but there is so much attention being paid there, the negative and positive votes balance out.

    Nothing Jill has ever done has really gotten to me until I read a link on the last Blog where Jill has compared herself to Phoebe Prince of Massachusetts. This horrible incident took place not far from where I live and it hurt the hearts of many.
    (CBS/AP) Nine teens have been charged in the “unrelenting” bullying of a teenage girl from Ireland who killed herself after being raped and enduring months of torment by classmates in person and online, a prosecutor said Monday.

    Northwestern District Attorney Elizabeth Scheibel said 15-year-old Phoebe Prince of South Hadley was stalked and harassed nearly constantly from September until she killed herself Jan. 14. The freshman had recently moved to western Massachusetts from Ireland.

    “The investigation revealed relentless activities directed toward Phoebe to make it impossible for her to stay at school. The bullying for her was intolerable,” Scheibel said.

    Six teens – four girls and two boys – face charges including statutory rape, assault, violation of civil rights resulting in injury, criminal harassment, disturbance of a school assembly and stalking. Three younger girls face delinquency charges.

    Scheibel said the harassment began in September. She said school officials knew about the bullying, but none will face criminal charges.

    While making the transition to a new town and a new country, Prince, officials believe, became the target of intense cyber-bullying.

    CBS News correspondent Whit Johnson reports Prince seemed to be well-adjusted and happy, but underneath, friends say, the 15-year-old freshman was tormented – a victim of cyber-bullying.

    A friend who did not want to be identified told CBS News, “She was being bullied because she was pretty and people were just jealous.” The friend said she was called an “Irish slut” and a whore.

    According to a letter from Prince’s high school principal, what began as “mean-spirited comments” at school soon found their way online, something experts say is far more dangerous.

    Prince was found dead in her South Hadley home on Jan. 14, just days before a big school dance.

    The night after she died, fellow students held a candlelight vigil.

    “The actions of these students were primarily conducted on school grounds during school hours and while school was in session,” the prosecutor said.

    Scheibel refused to discuss the circumstances of the rape charges.

    Prince’s family has moved away from the area and could not immediately be located for comment. Scheibel spoke for them at a news conference to announce the charges.

    “The Prince family has asked that the public refrain from vigilantism in favor of allowing the judicial system an opportunity to provide a measure of justice for Phoebe,” she said.

    Some students accused of participating in the bullying have been disciplined by the school and will not be returning to classes.

    Jill, I hope you read this Blog and you take a very good look at Phoebe’s face. Jill Zarin you are a horrible person. I suggest you visit a church or a synagogue and beg for forgivness.

    • RileyKitty says:

      Jill (& Kelly) should be ashamed of themselves. To even think of putting your name in the same sentence as this tragedy is unthinkable. Just when I didn’t think I could hate this bitch even more, she surprises me & yep… the hatred grows.

      This is exactly the kind of JillZarin bullshit that boils my blood!!

      Are you fucking kidding me(Kelly too, that fucking idiot!) They open their mouths and spew shit they know nothing about and use it as their own personal soap box?? Cretins from an absolute hell! How DARE they…

      This whole “bullying” situation touches such a personal family situation that happened 5 years ago and had such unfortunate results…..that will NEVER have resolution!! To see these fully “grown” adult women just throw these terms and names around, TO SUIT THIER UNFORGIVABLE BEHAVIOR, is beyond evil! It sickens me to NO end.

      It’s one thing to be an a reality show, But their absolutely false claims about bullying (from 40+ women) do nothing to aid those who are truly suffering because of it. It actually cheapens it, and makes theirs(children and teens) less believable. Fame-WHORES at any cost. SICK,SICK and SICK!!!

      If these 2 whores from hell are re-signed, I swear Bravo will get no rest!

      My apologies for my rant.

    • bamabelle57 says:

      Boston… I heard this on the news and my heart goes out to Phoebe’s friends and family. Bullying is a REAL issue in this country. I can’t believe Jill Zarin equates her life to that of a school-age girl whom was relentlessly bullied, among other things.

      Kelly also, with her “systematic bullying” crap… just infuriates me! I wrote a comment above about just ” how and when” Jill Zarin was bullied. A bunch of grown women fighting over petty jealously is not and never will be BULLYING!

      Jill started this fight by ruthlessly trying to cut Bethenny out of RHONYC… she enlisted the help of LuAnn and Kelly. She told Bethenny “we’re done” several times when Beth tried to make up. Just because Jill wasn’t welcomed when she crashed Ramona’s trip IS NOT BEING BULLIED, and I’m sick of it!

      You’re so right about Jill needing to visit a church. She needs to apologize “sincerely” to Bethenny then understand when Bethenny accepts her apology but doesn’t want to continue their friendship. After that… Jill Zarin needs to SHUT-UP… Go on with her life and try her best to learn from this!

      I’ll be really disappointed if Jill returns to RHONYC… It’s not right to be rewarded for such horrible behavior. I don’t believe Jill will refuse to film with Alex… she’d do ANYTHING to stay on the show… so, so, pathetic!

  22. dancekrazy says:

    I think that Ramona “grew a pair” after this season, evidenced by her grabbing Alex’s hand on the Reunion show and telling Jill, “I really like Alex.” Not to mention Ramona’s going off on Zarin about going to St. John uninvited and unannounced. I think Ramona will give Zarin a run for her money this coming season (if Jill isn’t in the middle of the Gobi)

    • error 404 says:

      I think Ramona always had a pair, but now she’s not the only one who sees Jill for who she is. The past 2 seasons R was always calling Jill out for her shit, but somehow it always came off looking bad and Jill looking good.

      The “underdog” comment to B.
      The “its tacky to promote your own business at a charity event” argument, that eventually led to Jill and B’s first big fight.
      Jill telling Alex that it was ok to bring Simon to a ‘girl’s only’ party.
      The tennis rematch.
      The girl’s cooking party.
      The Kodak event. (Ramona may have said on camera that Kodak was over, but that wouldn’t air for months. She didn’t ruin the event. Kelly ruined the event when she started scolding R while Jill was presenting.)

      • bamabelle57 says:

        If anything Ramona’s comment showed how far Jill was willing to stand up for Kodac… making the perfect little spokesperson, she should thank Ramona for that. If Ramona hadn’t made that comment, then Jill wouldn’t have got to say all those wondeful things about the Kodac company.

        Yep… it was Jill who caused a scene when she told Ramona to LEAVE, then Kelly caused another commotion mocking Ramona.

    • Jules says:

      I tell you, I’d take Ramona anyday over Jill. When Ramona hosts a party she worries about pleasing the people attending, like at St. John. When Jill plans an event all she can think about is how to make herself the center of attention, like at the holiday skating party featuring Jill (falling I might add – yeah it was great). Totally self absorbed beotch beyond words. She makes my blood boil.

      It really surprises me how she got me to this point so fast too, considering she was one of my favorites when she was friends with Bethenny. I must not forget the fact that she has been hard at work getting me to this point.

      • bamabelle57 says:

        I never liked Jill. I saw through her from day one. I didn’t like Ramona, either, but I do now. Ramona is REAL and does care about other people. She comes off harsh sometimes, but is willing to apologize and mean it.

        I like Ramona and Alex’ friendship… they’re funny together and thankfully Ramona finally gave Alex a chance. I was in disbelief when Ramona invited Alex and Simon to her Labor day party, then didn’t want them to leave.

        Jill said The Countess wouldn’t be caught dead at anything Alex and Simon had, didn’t want them at her house, either. Jill wanted LuAnn to invite Simon and Alex to her little “last minute party” Labor Day because Jill didn’t want Alex and Simon filming with Bethenny at Ramona’s.

        Who believes Jill wouldn’t come to Ramona’s party because she wanted to stay with LuAnn who didn’t feel comfortable going to Ramona’s because Mario called her “Countless”? Oh No, she was not going to film with Bethenny. Now we know she told everybody not to film with Bethenny… so all that crap she said to Ramona about how she was torn, and didn’t want LuAnn to be by herself was an out and out LIE!

        That’s the REAL reason Jill hates Alex… she wouldn’t follow the plan to cut Bethenny out. When Alex heard Bethenny’s side, she sided with Bethenny and now… it’s all out WAR! Jill will stop at nothing to hurt Simon and Alex. At first, Jill was using Alex for information on Bethenny… she didn’t like Alex way before Alex delivered the message or called her out on being a mean girl!

        • error 404 says:

          Ramona wouldn’t follow the plan either, repeatedly filming with Bethenny, and after the famous “ambush” Jill had more than enough reason/excuse to cut Ramona out of her life, but she didn’t follow thru because Ramona is a master at the insult apology: “I’m sorry you were so oversensitive that you took offense at my honest comment” etc.. but mostly because Ramona is her social equal, but Alex Jill has always known to be her inferior.

    How does Kelly know whether Sonja works out or not. She has known (at the time) her all of what? 2 months? She has to be a biggest moron to ever walk earth.

      this is just “kellytalk”. Like “I don’t drink” = I don’t drink wine everyday. “you don’t work out” = you don’t work out 5 hours a day, everyday like I do.

Yeah, that’s why the average american has abs of steel. :rolleyes We all know it takes like serious crunches 5 times a week with a trainer to get rid of a pooch.

      as Silex touched upon in season 1, the private school system is a dog eat dog rat race in NYC. All college students around the world are fighting to get in, but NYC kids have been fighting the fight since pre-k. Someone as thick as Ally isn’t going to bag a Morgan.

      • bamabelle57 says:

        Agree… Sonja has patience, but she did say in her camera interview that she tunes out of the things Kelly says. I think next season Sonja’s patience will run out for Jill and Kelly.

    • Jules says:

      Clearly Kelly thinks her way is the only way. Since she doesn’t cook, I am pretty sure she is taking her kids out to eat all the time – we all saw her daughter eating french fries when she was explaining to them about appearing in Playboy.

      With regard to Jill having to stay for Ally’s final essays. It’s like this. My son was valedictorian of his class, and got nearly a perfect score on the SAT (only taking it once, and never studied, or had a tutor). He did his prep work every year, learning, and being inquisitive on his own. He did his own college applications, and his own college essays. I did not need to stay home with him to make sure they got done, nor did I have to do them for him. He got a full-ride scholarship (overscholarshiped as a matter of fact). We live in Indiana, and while I am smart, and so is his father, I wouldn’t necessarily call us the best and the brightest. It has been more of what I taught with regard to having pride in himself, and always doing his level best that made him who he is today – not tutors, and money spent on them. With Jill as a mother, Ally is doomed to be mediocre, but then on the other hand she has also learned that she can always blame her failures on someone else, or marry someone for money, or manipulate to get what she wants rather than earn it.

      The money these parents have doesn’t help their kids, it turns them into people that don’t earn what they get, and therefore they can’t possible back it up in the real world. SAD really!!!!!!!

      • MAMAZ says:

        Jules – Congrats to your son and family.
        I was insulted by JZ’s comments. As I mentioned once before I work for a well known and highly respected university. I know some truly gifted young men and women. They come from all over the world. No one area has claim to the best and the brightest.

        • Jules says:

          Thanks MAMAZ, but don’t be insulted by Jill’s comments. Jill is too stupid to realize that by saying things like this, she is displaying her daughter’s inadequacies, and preventing her daughter from being a responsible member of society. You can hardly teach a child about assuming personally responsibility for their actions, and the course of their lives, when you as their parent does not.

          Jill isn’t the sharpest tool in the shed, and has displayed this over, and over by her shananigans. She is however a skilled manipulator, but not bright enough to cover her tracks, and therefore her crap is not believable.

            • Jules says:

              As I said her comments didn’t upset me. I think they further displayed her ignorance with regard to how her comments are received. I mean, my G-d, at the Reunion show she had no more than apologized to Sonja about the tongue down the throat comment when she says to Sonja that she doesn’t have paying customers – they get it for free. She can’t save herself, and is circling the drain.

        • Jules says:

          bamabelle57 – I had my thyroid completely removed 5/24/10. I had a huge tumor – one of the biggest my ENT had ever seen. It was not cancerous, so I am not trying to be mellodramtic. The scar started out about 5 inches across, and in the short span of a month has gone down to about 2 to 2 and 1/4 inches as the swelling subsided. No biggy really, and definitely not ear to ear. I am having a little trouble getting my TSH regulated, and am definitely exhausted, but things will straighten themselves out in short order, I am sure.

          Bottom line is, I think Jill was forced to bring up the thyroid cancer issue, because I don’t think that she was getting the sympathy she wanted when she confined her issues with Bethenny to the get a hobby comment, which is what really bothered her. Bethenny was in the right – I have read a number of different Jill articles, and she takes 100% credit for the original cast of RHONYC with the exception of Alex, and has since day one. What a narsacisstic beotch. She is even trying to nudge her way into Millionaire Matchmaker, by having calls directed to her. Everytime I think about the crap she has pulled I find myself just shaking my head in disbelief.

    So Jill wants to hang with Krazy Kelly. Just one thing though…Jill “unpredictable people are dangerous”. I would kept one eye open at nite…and remember that Kelly has been charged for violence. But you know what?? I would love for Kelly to “slap a bitch”.

    • bamabelle57 says:

      Everytime somebody brings up Kelly’s “assault conviction”… I still think about Season~2 Reunion when asked by Andy to explain the recent stuff. Kelly says “After talking to Jill Zarin (I trust her advice)… She told me to get rid of this person”… something like that, but it was clear Kelly was following Jill’s advice to lose the boyfriend. All of a sudden Kelly is charged with assault. She wouldn’t give much information about it at the 2 Reunion, but she said… I would never put my hands on anybody… unless I had to!… Hmmmmmmm?

      I think it’s odd that she said, after advice from Jill Zarin, I ended it and then he walked to the police station… so… what difference does it make how he got to the police station… she made the biggest deal about him WALKING to the police station. I wonder what kind of advice Jill gave Kelly?

      • tuzentswurth says:

        Her explanation left out a big chunk of time between….So I asked him to leave and he wouldn’t…..so then he walked to the police station, blah, blah. She just forgot to say….I punched him in the face with my fist, bloodied him up, blackened his eye, busted his face open…..so then he walked to the police station…..
        Duh, then after her community service she said she wanted to “raise awareness about domestic violence” since she had been a victim of abuse…much like her psa for bullying b/c…. oh yeah…..she’s a victim.

  26. HD says:

    I honestly do not like or dislike Alex. I think she has a very simple life that does not intrigue me. I have watched Real Housewives since OC and have not missed ONE episode from any franchise. I know the history, as I am sure we all do, and I still remember very well, Alex and Simon scouring the pages to find themselves in the paper, broadcasting how much money they spent on a shopping spree, the dirty house, their lack of parenting when their kids were all over the place at the dinner…I have a long memory and I cannot jump on the I Love Alex Train. I do not like or dislike her. To me she is a character on the show that can either go or stay and I do not think the show would be that highly impacted. This is my honest opinion.

    HOWEVER….I do have an issue with Jill messing with her JUST to mess with her because she (Jill) is in hot water. That I do not like. However, I am not an Alex fan or enemy. To me she inconsequential to the show.

    • error 404 says:

      It will be interesting to see how the show evolves if B leaves. I feel like all of the “who’s in and who’s out” wind blows with who’s nice to B and who isn’t.

      • HD says:

        Very true. They will need another story line and sadly because the network is all about the bottom line I must say, they would be a fool to let Jill go. Everyone will tune in to see does she return, how has she changed, has she changed, etc., etc. The executives at Bravo know this so they will keep her. Every story needs a villian. Jill is it. So she will return and with Bethanny gone, she will be the top dog on the show because when it comes to Jill everyone (minus Ramona) around her shrinks and acts as if they cannot speak up and tell her what a royal bitch she truly is. Luann and Kelly are grooming her pubic hair, Jen will feed her grapes just to be on the show, Sonja could care less and Ramona will shoot it straight. In order for the show to maintain its success, they will need to bring in another Alpha Female. Someone that does not take any shit and that can tell Jill to fuck off! 🙂

        • Squirrels says:

          I think that is the issue. Who says you need a villain? I enjoy watching Top Chef Masters, where each chef is confident enough to lend a hand to other contestants when asked or needed.

          I enjoy BGM? There is enough drama in her real life to fill a stadium. It doesn’t necessarily have to be in the form of sophomoric who is better, nicer, prettier, more important, etc.

          Drama = hate? naaaa. Doesn’t need to be that way. Our society can be better than this, better than RHWONJ, better than NY, OC, ATL, and certainly better than accepting the bullshit Bravo is trying to shovel down our gullets.

          • bamabelle57 says:

            AMEN to that, Squirrels!

            I agree, everything doesn’t have to be so “cut throat” and “dog eat dog” drama.

            I liked Top Chef Masters also because they had respect for each other, just their level of talent and creativity was drama enough. I like the “good drama” not the kind that makes me want to throw something through my tv.

            I do like Alex because I like nice people. She was the kind of person I expected to see in Real Housewives of New York City… I find her life more interesting than Jill’s because she works while rasing 2 boys. She’s not super rich and has her struggles. I like her fashions, I thought it was interesting watching how she would decorate her house, LOL… not my taste, but different strokes for different folks.

            I loved her interacting with Bethenny and Ramona and liked how they seemed to form a real friendship. Can you imagine what Bethenny would have done without her this year? I like that Alex seems to respect and love her husband.

            This is just my opinion, but I wish we had more Alex’ on the “Real Housewive Series”. I like nice people and I think she generally tries to be a nice person.

    • Irene says:

      Seems like you & I are in the exact same place when it comes to Alex. I just don’t find her very interesting. From the very beginning the whole shopping spree w/ Simon just seemed weird because she doesn’t seem like someone who would act like that. IMO it came off as them trying to fit in (as in…I can shop w/ the best of them) It honestly just didn’t seem to ‘fit’ when you looked at her in other situations. Then the whole flipping thru the social pages to find themselves….not that I don’t think the others do that too…..that also just came across odd.
      In response to the way Jill treated Alex this season. I was highly disappointed with Jill this season as well, however, in a few instances I thought Alex had it coming. I say this mainly in response to the whole “I’ve got a message to deliver from Bethenny” ordeal. Personally, I’m a firm believer in fighting your own battles….period. Though I truly believe I’d feel differently had Alex taken Jill aside and then said something along the line of “I’m still upset w/ you myself over the remarks concerning my children but you really need to realize that Bethenny is done….she even told me so herself.” Ok that’s my two cents. I really haven’t been surprised much with Jill in regards to Alex at all. Surely I’m not the only one that could see from the very beginning that Jill did not like Alex.
      Thanks for posting HD…it’s nice to know I’m not the only one that could ‘take or leave’ Alex. That being said….it certainly doesn’t mean I’ve been pleased w/ Jill this season either.

      • tuzentswurth says:

        Very much agree with you. The message as delivered was inappropriate and awkward. B didn’t ask her to pointedly go up to Jill and announce this. If it came up, yes discreetly, aside say B has had it. That was my take on it.
        And, yes…don’t drag others in to your business. It would have clarified a lot if B would have waited till the next time she had to come face to face with Jill and then let her know….point taken, we are done!

      • Cheri says:

        I have a different take on Alex and Simona. I really thought they were weird the first year but as we’ve gotten to know them I don’t feel that way anymore. I actually like them. I really think the first year they were uncomfortable and acting like someone they weren’t because of it. They probably thought they had to put on airs to fit on with the others but have grown more comfortable on camera and with the others so that now they ste acting more like theirselves. Just a thought. As far as Jill I think she us hanging with Kelly because no one else will hang out with her and Kelly is the only one she can control. I think countless has figured out Jill is doing more harm than good to her reputation and is smart enough to back herself out of that friendship. I’m also guessing that without the countless Jill needs a friend with a house in the hamptons to stay at this summer if Bobby hasn’t bought her another one. Anyone know if they replaced the one they sold

        • floridagirl88 says:

          It was earlier this year that it was brought out that Alex and Simon were the first cast members hired for the show. Maybe that is why we didn’t know what to make of them. If they were filmed first, they may have been trying to act the way they thought was expected. I never disliked them, but couldn’t figure them out until that hilarious scene in their backyard kiddie pool where they splashed around like children and laughed at themselves. I have been a Silex fan ever since.

    • tuzentswurth says:

      They were a bit weird,… however, I think they have the ability to gain some self-awareness after watching themselves, I think Ramona did too. They seem to have made some behavioral modifications for the better. Jill, Kelly and Luann….not so much.

  27. My rant to BeachMom who left a 5-star reviewer of Jill’s book accusing the 1-star reviewers of being just a few people:

    Your post: June 25, 2010 9:49 PM PDT
    CatsNQuilts says:
    Rating and writing a review to either bash or support an author without having read the book is wrong. Both “sides” are doing it, I’m sure.

    The main difference is that Jill was caught red handed writing her own 5-star review using the Susan Saunders pseudonym and then 15 or more 5-star reviews were quickly deleted right after she was outed. Also Jill, using the Susan Saunder pseudonym harassed and threatened A. Chandler, Amazon’s #1 reviewer and her pet dog. Harassing and threatening a reviewer or commenter is unconscionable. Some people who may be Jill’s relative, friends, or fans have been harassing Chandler and other reviewers/commenters on Amazon and also others elsewhere. They have even stolen Chandler’s identity and are posting as her on twitter, Amazon, and elsewhere. Chandler has received harassing and threatening emails from Jill (as Saunders) and J. Samples. Jill’s camp sent Chandler the book and asked her to review it. Do you think it was right for them to harass and threaten her because of her 1-star review? I certainly hope not.

    Samples has also defamed Alex McCord and Simon VanKempen and their children in a scurrilous “review” she left for their book. Amazon deleted that review. Samples then left a 5-star review plagiarizing Chandler’s review almost in its entirety and changed the wording just enough to make it a glowing review of Jill’s book. Amazon agreed it was plagiarizing and removed the review. Then Samples tried again to leave a defamatory 1-star review to Alex and Simon’s book and again Amazon deleted that review. Samples also made numerous harassing and threatening posts in the comments section of Chandler’s review, some of which Amazon found harassing, threatening or defamatory and removed them. Do you think this person was right to do this? I hope not.

    You said “I hope potential readers of this book notice that nearly all of the poor reviews have the same verbiage. With time to browse, I read many of the reviews and see that there is an inordinate amount of them writing this as thier FIRST review. These are all signs that probably one group-or person wrote the reviews.”

    Almost those exact words have been said about many of those writing 5 star reviews for Jill’s book and about those writing 1- or 2-star reviews for Alex and Simon’s book.

    I have read and reviewed Alex and Simon’s book, Little kids Big City, and loved it. I have yet to read Jill’s book. I have read the Introduction and Chapter 1 on my Kindle for PC when I downloaded the first chapter free. I do plan to read the book and review it one day.

    I can only speak for myself when I say that I will not review Jill’s book until I have read it. Let’s hope that all reviewers past and present will hold to this standard. Those who have left reviews of either book and haven’t read it should delete their review until such time that they do read the book. I doubt this will happen though.

    Anybody going around and saying that the reviewers leaving negative reviews of Jill’s book and positive reviews of Alex and Simon’s book are probably just a few people using different names or are Alex and Simon are using a type of faulty logic with no evidence that can be traced to Jill herself. From watching Jill and hearing what she has said, if Jill does something, then everybody does it. No! That is insulting. It is such rudimentary thinking that goes back to elementary school level of cognitive development. No! There has been no evidence whatsoever that Alex and Simon are behind any campaign to leave their book 5-star reviews and 1-star reviews of Jill’s book. Jill set the standard for her followers–one of dishonesty–which was uncovered by the website zap 2 it, I believe it was. Alex and Simon have set a higher standard for their followers, and I challenge you or anyone to find any evidence that proves otherwise.

    In the meantime, if these 1-star reviews of Jill’s book bother you so much, then do something about it; don’t just whine and complain! I have contacted Amazon about some of the questionable or defamatory reviews/comments, so you can do the same regarding these 1-star reviews you think are bogus. That goes for the 5-star reviews of Alex and Simon’s book too. Go for it! I wholeheartedly encourage you to do it! But you and anybody else who thinks these reviews are bogus are going to have to do the work yourselves because frankly, I don’t give a damn.

  28. HD says:

    Also, I realized why I was not really feeling BGM?…her life parallels my life too much so I can see what is coming down the pike and I do not want that for her. It is one thing to deal with your baggage personally and as much as I love Bethanny she should have stock in Samonite. She has a ton of baggage that unfortunately, Jason and Bryn will have to deal with her unpacking it. Been there, done that, got a T-shirt. And to deal with those things are HARD and I wish that she did not choose to do it on camera because I personally know how ugly it can get.

    I was molested, physically abused, abandoned by parents, kicked out the house at 15, had a daughter, met a guy that can deal with my issues, got married and I still fight daily to believe that I am worthy enough. She will battle this and it will be a hard battle for her and I just wish it was not on TV to be under a microscope. I wish her the best of luck but I can foresee what is coming and if she knew what I knew she would not unpack her luggage on TV.

    • error 404 says:

      wow. Thanks for sharing. I used to say that surpressing emotions was like overpacking a suitcase. Once you hopped on it and jammed it shut and felt smug with yourself about it, suddenly the latch gives and the whole thing just explodes all over the room. For whatever reason, B has chosen to live her life on TV. Hopefully she’ll be able to unpack her bags gracefully, and/or come out the other side as an inspiration. It remind me of Ruby in a way. Or even Sapphire’s Push, which B made a joke about. There can be a fine line between reality TV and documentary. Sometimes the ugliness can be beautiful.

      • HD says:

        Thank you, Error 404. I have had a hard life, it just is what it is and you are right out of that pain, there can be beauty but it is like hmmmmmmmm what is that flower…the lotus…so mmuch dirt, so much mud, just to discover something so beautiful. I understand her struggle but I fear her being sliced and diced with bloggers, critics, etc that can never truly understand that this is a woman that is JUST beginning to love herself, understand that it is OKAY to love her and allow herself to be loved…and that is what I fear, I guess because I have feared that all my life. That somehow my life would be criticized when all I was trying to do was learn how to love me. I just want her to be okay.

        • AlternateReality says:

          You know HD, you’re putting a finger on what I find a bit uncomfortable watching this show. I’m a grown woman, I’m not team anyone. I just did not like jill’s behavior, not at all.

          I find Bethenny abrasive on her show. I wrote on the last blog that I felt her to be emasculating. Not just towards Jason but to other males on the show.

          I also stated that I can see where it comes from. It is somewhat uncomfortable to watch. Glad you shared. I thought I was the only one who sensed that this was not an all happy and light show.

          • HD says:

            I understand what you are saying. Bethanny is the way that she is because Bethanny has not yet stood in the mirror and faced herself. With her quick wit, what we see is Bethanny’s doppleganger. I can promise you at night, Bethanny cries, at night she hurts, at night she wonders is any of this worth it. There is something to say about a person when there are no adornments to hide them, when there is no mask, when there are no funny jokes and one liners. When it is just you and your shit. And that is ugly. I speak from experience. People may come down on me for speaking my mind but I know what I know. The crowd screams, “hosanna” one day and “crucify” the next. Bethanny will not come out of this show smelling like roses. It is the nature of the beast and every day BGM? shows you a little bit more of her dysfunction and issues. (This is not to criticize her because as I said, been there, done that, I am simply relating and speaking from what I THINK I see coming down the pike. I am just being honest.)

            • AlternateReality says:

              I completely indentify with all you are sharing and I thank you for sharing it.

              I do not believe either of us is criticizing her, we just see what we see.

            • AlternateReality says:

              It’s also not surprising that she clung to Jill when she found her. Repeating old patterns because she has yet to find her way out the other side of the tunnel.

              We see what we see because we know what we know.

              • Tootsie says:

                I so agree with all of you. I have felt a kinship with Bethenny from the beginning. I am hopeful that Jason and his parents will bring Bethenny to a good place. On top of all of her abandonments, Jill, who knew her best, and whom Bethenny loved, chose to pick her apart and abandon her so she could get her apple. Knowing how Bethenny loved her and needed her, she still chose to beat her up emotionally (and continues to this day). Yet Jill wonders why Bethenny refuses to include her into her life. Puhleeze Jill.

              • dancekrazy says:

                Absolutely! When she was describing her mother to the therapist in BGM? episode 1, she could have been describing Jill, “…manipulative, deceptive”, etc.

          From your writings you seem to have overcome a lot. I can’t imagine going through any of that. My mother died at 46 years old of cervical cancer in 1982. She was a wonderful, caring, loving mother who was adored by many people. My Daddy loved her dearly as he did us. I wish everyone could have a childhood like I did because every child deserves that!

      She needs to take a good look at herself and realize that she is successful and now has a lovely family that loves her. Life is never perfect for anyone, so don’t go off the rails and try to control everything. Treat others how you would like to be treated, everyone needs love and respect, we ALL have issues, some have bigger ones, true. Be the family now for Bryn that she wishes she had. Stop screaming at Jason, he’never going to read your mind and be perfect. Yes, B, you are under a lot of stress, so….stop, what can you do without and what can you delegate…and what is REALLY important.
      People criticized Kate Gosselin,….don’t jump on me here people…..but the woman was under a terrible amount of stress. New mom to 8…..I can’t even imagine. The burden fell to her, (thinking we’ve seen the dope that Jon actually is) and she tried to keep up with it, but I probably would have been off the rails too. Maybe it would help B to watch the unraveling of that reality disaster!

    • Jules says:

      I realize that it is tempting to worry about Bethenny, but you can tell she is very self aware. It will take effort, but I think Bethenny will be fine, and so will her marriage. Bethenny is a smart girl, and she wants better for her daughter.

  29. Expressions says:

    Jill’s constant use of “you’re not my friend” and “I thought we were friends” has always seemed so juvenile. Low and behold, while watching my granddaughter play at the park, I observed the same words from 4 & 5 year olds. It was back and forth “are you my friend” “you aren’t my friend”, etc.

    Jill is eternally stuck on the playground, IMO.

    • Katiecoo says:

      Wow, interesting observation. I’ve been watching some of these older episodes and she’s in to that “you’re not my friend, it’s ok, now I know” BS since Day 1. Does it EVER work for her? It’s her one line of intimidation. I wonder how many times she’s said “you’re not my daughter” to Ally. 😦

    • I think her thinking was arrested on the elementary school ground. LOL!

    • kokuanani says:

      When my daughter was that age [4-5], the ultimate “you are not my friend” threat was “you can’t come to my birthday party.”

Go Al Sharpton go.

    OK, need to do this, so please bear w/me. You guys are awesome so I thank you in advance for letting me rant.

    Looks like the spin train is on the move. First it was that Jill was the victim of Alex’s master plan to make herself relevant by picking a fight w/Jill (Plan A). Now it’s really Bravo’s master plan (in conjunction w/Bethenny) to destroy her – and has been from before filming began (Plan B).

    Seems Alex’s popularity is causing a prob with Plan A. Oops! Darn that just stings. Hard to pin all of Jill’s season long malicious behavior on someone who didn’t have the “message” convo until most of Jill’s vile behavior had already been filmed and broadcast. No matter how many times Jill says it, no one is buying that all of Jill’s PR problems are based on Alex’s need to create controversy in order to stay on the show.

    So on to Plan B – Bravo is the devil! It’s been working overtime with its evil state-of-the-art editing to make poor, sweet Jill look like shit all season to assure Bethenny’s new show is a hit.

    Huh wah? Somebody’s paying her PR team too much for this crap.

    Throw in her comments regarding bullying and Phoebe Price and I’m D O N E. She is a non entity.

    This is the first time I have typed this, but here goes. I hate Jill Zarin.

    • error 404 says:

      LOL! re: Kiki

      Jill’s plan A: Bravo forced us to bring the drama or lose our apples. Alex attacked me just to keep her place. I started the feud with B to keep my place. Bravo edited it to look worse than it was, and B took it to another place. B made it real and won’t forgive me for a silly mistake. They all are the bad ones, not me. If Jews had saints, I’d be one.

Who gets 10,000.00 a month from family? Who files for bankruptcy and spends 2,000.00 on clothes for a 9 year old? Who throws a birthday party with a pink girly limo, four wheeler, and spa day for 9 year olds, and throws a house warming party with fire eaters and break dancers when they are filing for bankruptcy???

      He soft-balled Jill because she got out of her seat at least twice like a goofy jack-in-the-box, who cries on cue and continually plays the victim. Also, I think the other “wives” took her down quite well. Any private pilots willing to take her to the Gobi Desert yet????

        ya, don’t do it Squirrels…That vision burns on your brain and it doesn’t go away. I so wish I had listened to people who told me not to watch. I got through less than 2 min, that was too much!

        • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

          Okay, I made it through 1 minute and 13 seconds—-ewwwww! and how can she claim there were hidden cameras and she had no idea she was being filmed when she is talking to the camera guy and has him put the camera down and then pick it up again? Yet another lie from another housewife. Ugh.

      • I won’t watch it either. Yuck! I’ve already had shopping nightmares! LOL!

    is there something wrong with the blog?

    • error 404 says:

      works fine for me, but I know that in the past, when it gets heavy with tons of comments, it sometimes gets screwy (posts out of order, or people not being able to use ‘reply’) . Then Lynn usually starts a new page.

  45. error 404 says:

    “Bethenny Frankel: definition of love: going to play in a family reunion golf scramble with my husband, then a reunion cookout. what r u up to?” lol

    getting used to the in-laws is always “interesting”. Every family has their own personal brand of disfunction. Still, must be odd for B, who has divorced herself from what little family she has.

  46. Squirrels says:

    Hey Lynn. Saw your tweet re: Whale Wars. I’ve been watching that since last year. As an ex Coastie (coast guard), I was very disturbed by the series. Not for their desire to do good, but because the capt took on volunteers with no sea trial experience. His explanation was, I need people with passion more than experience.

    Hold the phone. You are headed into some of the most difficult waters on this planet with a hull that cannot withstand a battle with icebergs and you want PASSION? Looked more to me like wanting to fulfill a death wish.

    This season, I see new faces on the bridge. All I can hope is he got experienced crew this time round. So far, I am not delighted they have an art student skippering the safeboat. I’d feel better knowing he at the very least, grew up on the water.

    You are no good to the whales if you are dead.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      That was sort of what I was thinking. I’m all for saving the wales and I’d love to claw the eyes out of those damn whale hunters! However, wow, the captain makes everyone on the boat vow to put the lives of the wales above their own and basically says they have to be willing to die to save them. I’d still have to put the live of the crew above the lives of the animals.

      As you said, how can you save anything if you’re dead? It just goes a bit too far, but then I guess that’s why the guy got a TV show.

      • Squirrels says:

        To be honest? I think he didn’t want to take on a paid crew. Why? No professional crew member is going to do what this captain feels necessary to stop a 300′ multi ton ship if it is deemed unsafe. Simple as that.

        What’s next? Fire ships?

        • LynnNChicago says:

          Great point. So are the people we see on the show paid or volunteers? I haven’t seen enough episodes to really get everything yet.

          • Squirrels says:

            All volunteers to my knowledge. In one episode last year, 2nd Mate Peter Hammarstedt made a major gaff chart plotting. No matter how dedicated he is, every error on those seas is a major issue.

            I do think he’s hitting his stride this season. He seems confident and very happy to be under the command of Chuck Swift. Swift appears to be more of a leader than Paul Watson.

            The scene of to launch or not to launch the speedboat? That moment unfolded painfully, making the crew look like The Three Stooges. We gotta go….. now…. OK, just let me put on my helmet and make a quick phone call. HUH?

            ok, i made the phone call up.

    OT–but I think I have priority issues! I will not drag my lazy butt away from this blog today (trying to get caught up!) to get the bread we are almost out of or the pop my husband (hard working guy) likes and we are out of, but now that I see the pups are low on doggie food I am ready to go to the store. Is that wrong? LOL

  49. Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

    She probably has some mental issues from living with Jill, so she would be more than welcome in this home. I can’t seem to adopt “normal” dogs. I have one with physical issues and another with severe anxiety disorder–the dog literally has panic attacks. We seem to like the odd ones on sight LOL and have the patience to work with them, so, we always go for the troubled ones. Ginger would fit in just fine–I think a tweeting dog would work out well in this house! LOL

    • Squirrels says:

      Hahaha… and I thought my tit seeking, nipple nipping rabbit was odd. Of course he only began this behavior post sayonara nads nip. Could it be he may be justified?


  50. Buffywood says:

    I have to say Jill comparing her and Kelly’s “experience” to that of the 12 year old girl who committed suicide due to bullying is absolutely one of the worst things I have ever heard. What that poor girl and her family went through is such a tragedy and to jump on that “coat tail” is the lowest of the low. I am almost at a lost for word. How could she? She is so self absorbed. That statement along is absolutely unforgivable. And she wonders why she is so hated? Get you head out of your ass Jill!! She really has hit an all time low. Part of me hopes that comment makes it way around the internet so others can see how she really is, but I would hate for that girls family to ever see it. Talk about be-littling their experience and their grief?

    The next thing we will read is how she feel like the little baby dolphin who died in the oil spill in the Gulf because she like the dolphin is surrounded by toxicity.

    • tuzentswurth says:

      It is like Jill comparing ending her relationship with B to “cutting her out like cancer”. I found that extremely offensive and in poor taste especially in light of her husband having cancer and “having his throat slit from ear to ear.”
      Anyone else think this was VERY exaggerated? Anyone else ever watch a loved one suffer the ravages of cancer and chemotherapy and find her analogy to friend-ending disgusting? The woman is beyond redemption, no wonder “I hate Jill Zarin” is so poular.

      • bamabelle57 says:

        My sister had thyroid cancer and it was surgically removed. She WAS NOT cut from ear to ear… Jill exaggerated that to make Bethenny feel bad. My sister has a small incision at the bottom of her neck. She also didn’t make a big deal out of who called and who didn’t. She couldn’t talk well right after, so she didn’t want her hospital phone ringing off the hook. My sister was so thankful her surgery was a success when so many people die from cancer… like our mother who died of cancer at the age of 46 in 1982. She suffered with horrible, horrible pain until the end.

        So, anybody that would say “I’ve cut you out like cancer” is a rotten human being. Nothing Jill zarin can ever do to redeem herself in my eyes. Plus, we now know Jill didn’t tell anybody about Bobby’s cancer until the camera’s were up. All the other housewives were told the same as Bethenny… Bobby is or had a procedure. Using your husbands cancer to start a fight with a friend because you’re jealous she was contracted for her own show is unforgivable.

        Asking others on the show to NOT film with Bethenny was going too far and proves Jill never really cared for Bethenny at all, and that’s why Bethenny doesn’t want Jill in her life and around her baby.

        • tuzentswurth says:

          Bless you Bamabelle57. I recently lost my mother to cancer. She was elderly, I was very blessed to have her in my life for as long as I did. The last 3 years were no picnic as you and many others know. JZ’s flippant remark was thoughtless and insensitive and that statement alone would be grounds for for crossing her off a friend list FOREVER.

  51. janelady73 says:

    We watched the lost scenes episode and for the most part, it made me laugh. I loved the line I said to Bobby at Chopard. “If I start feeling jewelry, you might be feeling something later!”. How funny was that! Bobby did buy me the watch ( not the necklace) and I wear it everyday. The scene with Ally and the tutor from Princeton Review was so funny. I have to confess. We wanted this scene to make the final edit because that was our reality at the time..study..study and more studying. That is why Ally was missing most of the season. and watching Ally studying is not what you would call interesting TV..so I came up with something silly to distract her and be funny for TV. I usually left Allyson alone in the dining room with her tutor so I wouldn’t distract her. We also filmed with her college prep counselor at IVY WISE in NYC. I highly recommend them, but you must start early for it to be useful. Sadly it was cut.
    Ramona’s Birthday lunch was quite emotional. Ramona shared with all of us the pain she had been carrying for a long time. Though it looked like we had a little “fight” we actually had a wonderful heart to heart that you didn’t see. That was one of the reasons I felt going to the Island was the right thing to do. I am not going to rehash all of it again..but just know my heart was in the right place.

    • desertgal66 says:

      Yes, yes, we know, Jill..your heart was in the right place, and you were victimized and terrorized by the heartless women, who made you feel like Phoebe Price…yadda, yadda, yadda…

      What a crock.

      • felony stupid says:

        Riiight. Which is why she so jumped at the chance to go when she was invited instead of poking around to figure out who was also invited. She later announced that she had def told Ramona she couldn’t go because Ally was working on her college applications.

        She must be dizzy from the spinning.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          Jill’s talking head did the Ally excuse or was it with LuAnn at lunch? Either way, you just don’t show up – declasse dahling. IMO she knew she’d get a chilly reception and then could play victim!

    • Lilbit says:

      Someone should tell Jill that when you’re in quicksand the worse thing you can do is to keep struggling; in other words STFU JILL!!

    • Need a Hobby says:

      If the circumstances were the same but Jill had sponsored the VI vacation, and if Ramona had first tried to prevent the vac from happening and then appeared unannounced on the last day with hubby in tow, JZ would have had a hissy of epic proportions.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Yeah and right after “surprise” she said you invited US…….I didn’t realize Bawby was a girlfriend!!

      • felony stupid says:

        Absolutely. I can’t imagine Ramona (or any of the others, LuLu and Kel included) who would have created this situation and then shown up.

        I don’t believe for one moment that Jill didn’t know what she was walking into. She went in figuring either way it went down, it was a win/win. If she got a warm welcome she could gracefully re-enter the group w/o eating crow, get back in Bethenny’s good graces (and be on her show), do damage control to her rep and push Alex out. If she was sent away, she would be seen as trying to make amends and being rudely told to pound sand by 4 mean bullies, lead by Captain Alex – buying her both sympathy from her ‘fans’ and turning the tide of public opinion in her favor.

        Jill thinks very very highly of herself which is why she gives herself permission to do what she would never accept from others. In the case of these women, she very rarely gets any pushback, which IMO is why she has lashed out so viciously both inside and outside the show at both Bethenny and Alex. Ramona ocassionally get in her grill but always seems to wind up apologizing and that’s part of their dance – as its probably been for 15 years.

        On a sidenote…I find it funny that Ramona uses “I’m sorry” as a way to lead into put downs A LOT. As in “I’m sorry that’s just declasse” or “I’m sorry, I’m just telling it like it is”.

        Is it 5pm yet?

    • boston02127 says:

      @janelady73–Apparently Jill doesn’t see that she came off as a low class whore while embarrassing her husband and her family. She doesn’t know enough to stop bringing it up either. As far as the VI’s and her heart being in the right place. NO. She doesn’t have a heart.
      Also, why has Ally continuously had a tutor?

      • Squirrels says:

        Wait… Jill is low class? Oh chit, I mean… a whore? Why am I always the last to know?

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        I thought SAT and ACT were done junior year….maybe Ally did very poorly on the practice tests.

        • felony stupid says:

          If memory serves (and god help me it’s been a while…) I think you can begin taking them in your JR year but cat take them once a year (?…or once a quarter) and only your highest score is reported. I suspect Ally’s scores weren’t spectacular so they are working towards better ones for college apps.

          • WindyCityWondering says:

            my son’s HS is junior year (three tries to get the best score possible on ACT, don’t know about SAT but likely multiple attempts can be made) with college apps going out before winter break – they start announcing which colleges seniors are going to during spring events and at graduation.

            • error 404 says:

              that’s how it was for me, 1,ooo years ago, and as this was filmed in the fall, I suspect it was a 2nd or 3rd try for Ally to bring up her score just before applications were due.

              I think it’s an open secret that Ally’s no rhode scholar.

          • here's the thing says:

            It’s very common to take them twice. Colleges will go with the higher scores. Having a tutor to help with exams and applications is also not uncommon, especially amongst private school kids. Competition is very, very fierce.

        • boston02127 says:

          @WCW-they are.

          • Jennifer says:

            ACT taken junior year and SATs senior year- u can ACT twice and SAT as much as u want but colleges don’t like u to take it more then twice

            I think Jill made up excuse why she loud when Ally studying because she watched and realized how two faced it looked so she spun it . I believe she acted like that because she wanted to be focal point of camera

    • tuzentswurth says:

      “just know my heart was in the right place”.
      She has a heart?????

    I was excited to watch lost footage, but once it started crazy Kelly was almost in every scene. Why Bravo why!!

    • viki55 says:

      Ya, and not much Bethenny either!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Was wondering about that too – I think they may have been trying to show us she wasn’t a raving lunatic prior to going on the trip but working out with Ramona showed she clearly was on planet kelly.

      • error 404 says:

        I think they showed a progression into madness.

        1. Drinks at her house scene she was just kinda ditzy

        2. Visiting Sonja sick scene was weird, like why is Kiki so passionate about delivering her message of Healthful not healthy? Is she losing it?

        3. Work out with Ramona scene: Kiki is in full on lost her mind Stacy Slater psycho babble. Really off her meds now.

  53. JillousyHater says:

    WOW! Jill Zarin is the richest housewife!!


  54. CuckooforCocoaPuffs says:

    On Jill’s website, they direct you to buy her book from http://www.zarinfabrics.com, which means Bobby probably bought a warehouse full to inflate the sales numbers. They also direct you to Barnes and Noble and Borders for on-line sales….but not Amazon, where a potential buyer would find 150+ negative reviews of the book.


  55. AlternateReality says:

    Poor amazon…I’m sure they’ll go belly up by missing out on the sales of jill’s book.

  56. AlternateReality says:

    She was selling them full price. if you bought three, she autographed them and threw in a free zarin’s reuseable tote.

    now, she’s giving a key chain valued at 19.95…

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      what a loser! do you think she is trying to clean up inventory or get to a second printing?

      • AlternateReality says:

        no, think she thought she could shill her book better than the book stores do.

        her book had limited appeal anyway for a national audience. then on top of the fact that it was just poorly written and without any useful content…TAAAANK!

        • Need a Hobby says:

          Plus the book came out just as JZ’s public image was taking a nosedive. No doubt the book was timed to coincide with RHONY’s run on Bravo. Problem is, fans were seeing her mean girl behavior on the show and also seeing that same kind of behavior/attitude on her media interviews promoting the show. Jill even bad mouthed Bethenny’s wedding on a nationally syndicated TV show.

          Jill took a hit in her fanbase. Many who might have bought the book, no matter how dreadful it is, because she’s on RHONY were turned off by what they saw on the show and decided to save their bucks.

          Jill miscalculated all around. Her late and lame attempts to recapture fans by publicly seeming to suck up to B to revive their friendship was a) too late, too much damage had been done, and b) derailed by her need to publicly lash out. So she’d publicly boohoo about B and how they hoped they’d get back together, she missed her, and then revert to the “toxicity” and “if they were ever really friends,” yada yada.

          Now her public media and internet jihad against Alex (and B still although to a lesser extent) is backfiring too. You boost your image by being nice (even if it’s fake) and positive—being likeable—not by meanly trashing others. Didn’t her mom ever tell her that you only make yourself look bad by doing that?

    • felony stupid says:

      niiice one!

    • HD says:

      Is she really giving away a keychain?

  57. WindyCityWondering says:

    Apparently, Jill doesn’t realize what a flashpoint issue bullying really is! People who don’t follow the show as posters here do will have a very negative reaction to her claims of being bullied. She isn’t taking the summer off – she is just digging her grave alittle deeper everyday!

    • Squirrels says:

      I know a card is not appropriate for Jill as she wouldn’t appreciate it, but may I send her a lovely monogramed shovel? I figure, if she’s going to continue to dig that hole, I’d be heartbroken if she didn’t get to do it in style. (The handle is rubberized to avoid nail breakage).

  58. Lilbit says:

    This is off subject but one of the scenes I loved about BGM? was when Bethany was talking to the wedding planner and he told her they were 10K over budget and started naming things they can eliminate to get the expense and Bethany totally wemt along with the cuts. That was soooooo refreshingly real compared to the many times we’ve seen these housewives throw elaborate parties, the costlier the better, just to turn around and claim bankruptcy. In the real world many have champagne tastes but beer budgets we just adjust, that’s why people love Bethany she keeps it real. Lynn should start a I LOVE BETHANY site to counterbalance Jill’s toxicity 🙂

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I loved when he gave her the cotton candy – I knew what it meant – her reaction to getting her dream venue was genuine happiness.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Actually – I Love Alex would steam Jilly more!

      • Lilbit says:

        Excellent idea! and maybe Lynn can set it up that for every 100 positive comments for Silex the site gets a little animated characture of Jill could come on and have her head explode LOL

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          lol good one!

        • ramonacoaster says:

          Love that idea!

        • Lilbit says:

          To add to the suspense, the animated head could be placed on site permanently and as the comments grow and get closer to the 100 mark the steam starts to build as her head swells with each comment until the 100th comment and then there sheee bloooows! just to start back up on comment 101.

  59. Kathi says:

    I’ve watched the reunion shows three times (just happen to catch them, I’m not obsessed or anything) and this is my two cents: Jill set Kelly up to be Bethenny 2.0. At the reunion when asked about PETA, Kelly compared her Playboy shoot to B’s PETA add. She created a drink, Kellade, after dissing B’s Skinny Girl.

    • Kathi says:

      Plus K might have gotten lipo if the reports can be believed – so where does she get off lecturing Sonja?

      • Lilbit says:

        I posted this before but it still amazes me that Kelly is sooo clueless. Sonja had lipo on her stomach so that means that every nerve ending is throbbing in the abdominal area so what does are resident cuckoo bird give as a gift? A cleansing kit!!!! something that will make Sonja’s colon go into spasms and have her running to the bathroom every 15 minutes, WTF?

        • boston02127 says:

          @Lilbit–I never thought of that. LOL
          She’s so stupid.

          • kats2 says:

            Kelly would like for us all to believe she never had work done but her boobs are worst then Danilles (before she had the recent surgery). Kelly is a mess.

              There’s another fake 5 star review on Jill’s book. Supposedly a man read it and he said he learned a lot about life and some tips he can pass on to his wife and daughter and that he got great advice on friendship. He said the ladies are lovely ladies and that Jill is easy to look at lol. No mention of any specifics of what is in the book. I’m sorry but I don’t buy books just because someone is easy to look at lmao. Will the fakers ever sto?. He’s a first time reviewer too. Fake, fake, fake!

  61. RileyKitty says:

    Good lord, back from the Vet. My youngest kitty, Ryan, had an accident last night that split his paw in two. Luckily, he didn’t lose it. Just lots of stitches. He is limping around with one of those silly cones on his head. Riley doesn’t know what to think of him. She is staying as far away from him as she can get. If it isn’t one thing it is another.

    I was thinking about this today & it made me laugh. Jill has alienated herself from everyone & Kelly is the only person who will hang with her, it is almost karmic justice. I would rather spend the rest of my life in total isolation that spend 1 minute with Kelly.

    • viki55 says:

      • boston02127 says:

        Hope your cat is ok RileyKitty. ( I tried to draw you one)
        The other day I heard odd crying noises outside and asked my b/f to look because I thought my cat had a bird and I didn’t want to see a bird being killed. So he went to see and he yelled back to me “it’s a fox fighting with Niko”. he ran out and the fox ran. My cat and the fox were on their back legs “boxing” with each other. Thankfully my cat didn’t have a scratch on him, but his heart was beating like a little motor when I picked him up.

        • boston02127 says:

          The poor cat I tried to make up there looks like a piece of owl jewerly Kelly makes.

          Oh My! That’s one lucky cat! Mine got attacked by a racoon when she was little, six stitches. Now she is so big and onry I think she could hold her own with a coyote!

        • RileyKitty says:

          love the kitty pic 🙂 He is going to be okay. to add insult to injury, we had him neutered today as well. Figured he was already going under may as well take care of that other business as well. His foot was so bad my hubby & I thought he would lose the paw for sure. He said Ryan will fit right in with our ragtag bunch. A few years ago Riley was hit by a car & lost her eye, she still hunts like a champ though.

        • error 404 says:

          my dog, who’s the size and color of a fox, came across one the other day. They both just looked at each other for a minute, then went on about their business. But it did make me wonder about a fox that would so brazenly come so close to people and other animals.

  63. AlternateReality says:

    they start filming at the end of summer don’t they? So I guess call backs will be going out soon. We know they will all be back except B. can’t wait to see how jill spins season 4.

  64. kats2 says:

    I think they will all be back with a couple guest shots of Bethenny perhaps. It sucks! But I don’t think Bravo has the balls to get rid of the losers they should dump. Case and point Danielle and the rest of the NJ crew.

    Speaking of Danielle, yeah I watched the video got to about 3 or 4 minutes, it was beyond gross. I have to say that her “female” parts do not look normal. First of all her boobs are so bad it made my boobs hurt. And her vag is not normal looking at all.
    It’s like she has had female parts made out of playdoh, since her kids look nothing like her, I’m convinced she is really dude.

  65. boston02127 says:

    So just went to the Bravo website where they have the Bravo celebs out and about and Kelly sure is out there a lot. At one event she even brought her books and posed with them on the step and repeat but the books had no connection to the event. So random, unless I’m missing something. . . .

          But not before her morning beer.

    • Translation:

      My first line of jewelry was ripped off from Carline Surf. She is way more creative than I will ever be so I just stole her ideas.
      She told me once that it is important to have neat hands. As an habitual meth user my fingernails are always dirty, and since she is so admired for her fashion sense I had expected her to compliment me on my fashion choices instead of criticising my dirty hands. She told me like three times to please wash my hands and stop touching her, she is obsessed with clean hands. It’s creepy.

      One time I was smoking meth in the bathroom on a boat and got stuck in there because no one told me you had to push on the handle, not pull. I was high off my ass so I just stared at the walls. Eventually I started speaking to them. They let me speak for hours on end without interrupting. I had a great conversation with those walls. They were so real and authentic and amazing and stylish.

      People think that reality shows are real. But they aren’t real for me. Because I act different when cameras are around. See, like right now for example. This isn’t real. I am giving fake answers because you have a camera and lights in my face. I would be responding totally differently if we were alone and this wasn’t being filmed. See, I’m not crazy. Not at all. It’s all for tv. And that’s what people don’t understand; it really happened that way. Wait, I mean it didn’t really happen that way. It didn’t happen that way. It was a breakthrough not a breakdown. I’m not crazy. I swear. I’m not crazy I tell you! Systematic bullying. Please don’t send me back to 1979.

      When I was a model it was like being a doll. People dress you up and do your hair and makeup however they want, and you get no say. And that’s how I wanted the show to be. Thinking is hard, so I just let Jill Zarin do what she wanted. I let her manipulate me and have fun with my personality.

      When I was younger, before I had the wonderful, amazing, tastemaker fashion sense that I have now, I only wore black clothes. That’s what the editors wore and I figured if I don’t have the brains to be an editor then I can at least look like one. But Gilles tought me that I can wear pearls with a beaded necklace. He is a genius. He also told me that the wonderful thing about being a human is being a chameleon. He doesn’t speak english very well. But he tought me everything I know, which is why I speak the english language as well as a New York City cab driver, just without the accent.

      Sometimes when I’m trying to get dressed in the morning all the colors from the clothing in my closet confuse me and I forget what I’m doing. I don’t need to go on vacations, because my hallucinations are so real it’s like my own little mini vacation in my head.

    • myname2use4now says:

      Wha? Huh?

  69. mom2 says:

    She said she wasn’t being “real” right now because there are cameras and lights and all (so whatever she says will be geared toward a certain way) … but on the show she’s the only “real” person there. Soooooo, she can ignore those cameras and lights but not the ones off the show?????

    • Squirrels says:

      I believe throughout we’ve learned Kelly can ignore Kelly if need be. Let’s face it, she’s good at it. Credit where credit due.


    • WindyCityWondering says:

      She is real, the others are all bad actresses! She is really real and it doesn’t matter if there are cameras and lights. She is really, really real and that is why she should be celebrated! She is really, really, really stupid…….

  70. AlternateReality says:

    unlike some of you…i just haven’t the stomach to even listen to this lunatic. if ever i had any doubt as to her sanity, the lost footage just drove it all home. she cannot have a conversation with anyone ever. one just has to allow her to babble her flight of fantasy nonsense until she runs out of steam. in her mind, if you just allow her to regurgitate what is going on in her diseased mind, she then makes sense.

    way to crazy for me.

    she is almost more annoying than jill.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      What the lost footage showed us is that Kelly can be pleasant and she also describes how she floats through her days (drugs prescription most likely). It also shows us that even in this state she can not hold her own in an adult conversation. Why did they show us this side of Kelly? IMO to make sure what we all saw on SJVI was a breakdown!

    • error 404 says:

      Lost footage:

      scene 1: Kiki has Lulu and Sonja over. They talk and ask questions. Very distressful and confusing for Kiki. Kiki no likely.

      scene2: Kiki goes to visit sick Sonja. Kiki has important things to say, but Sonja talk back and that frightens and frustrates Kiki. Then Sonja stops and just lets Kiki talk non stop. Now Kiki happy.

      scene 3: Kiki works out with Ramona. Ramona no say 1 word. Kiki just talk and talk and talk and then talk some more. Finally! Ramona is real and Kiki is really really really happy.

    Jill’s tweet:
    Had fun this AM going to tag sales with lXTV crew. Found a great beach basket for $1.00!
    She only spent one dollar. Looks like Bobby wasn’t around for her to whore money off of.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Maybe there wasn’t any jewelry at the tag sale…….

      • Squirrels says:

        Hell, you know they asked $4 for the stupid beach basket, but Jill has never met a garage sale she couldn’t concur. She has millions, but can’t give an inch, never mind a yard sale family $3.

        Gee, I’m shocked.

    @AlternateReality~~I just read her tweets. She’s going to a fuction honoring Charlie Walk. I googled him, he’s the President, Epic Records Sony Music Entertainment Inc. New York, NY

    Re-posting this, somehow it ended up halfway up the page…

    There’s another fake 5 star review on Jill’s book. Supposedly a man read it and he said he learned a lot about life and some tips he can pass on to his wife and daughter and that he got great advice on friendship. He said the ladies are lovely ladies and that Jill is easy to look at lol. No mention of any specifics of what is in the book. I’m sorry but I don’t buy books just because someone is easy to look at lmao. Will the fakers ever sto?. He’s a first time reviewer too. Fake, fake, fake!

    • boston02127 says:

      @Char212–“Jill is easy to look at”. Bwhahaha! Did he sign his name Stevie Wonder?

    • desertgal66 says:

      And all these fake reviewers are starting to irritate the bejeebers out of me. It’s so gutless…JILL.

      • Char212 says:

        They are irritating me too. What is most annoying and is really making me mad is they (jill & co.) must think we are all so stupid that we wouldn’t figure out what they are doing. Actually it’s insulting.

      • Squirrels says:

        It hurts Amazon most. Now the cat is officially out of the bag and so many know fake reviews can and do exist for any given book it’s become a welcome mat for screamers and scammers.

        Maybe Amazon can afford to ignore it, hoping it will go away. I hope so too, for Alana’s sake. She doesn’t need this chit.

    I wonder if she was invited? Maybe they wanted a headache free night.

  79. boston02127 says:

    I just looked up where they are going. It’s the Phoenix House, East Hampton Outpatient. It’s a place for recovery. Maybe Kelly isn’t attending because she’s afraid they’ll keep her.

    • AlternateReality says:

      why is Kelly thanking him? she just takes ownership of everything. she can say she admires his work for a great cause but why is SHE thanking him?

      On the reunion, she made it sound as though she did the peta campaign.

      just way too crazy for me..not even worth cracking on.

      • desertgal66 says:

        Actually, according to Kelly on Twitter, all her Tweets about PETA, as well as the mentions during the reunion, have really, really raised PETA’s profile. I mean, it’s far surpassed any advertising by the organization.

        Which is good, since PETA was such a murky, unknown organization before Kelly Benseemoan put them on the map… [insert eye roll icon here]

        • tuzentswurth says:

          Well after all, she is a self-professed style icon and trend-setter………. um yeah Kelly, in 1979 maybe but honey, you are just a bit “past it”. Ever hear of mutton dressed as lamb? Own it.

          • ElleNYC says:

            Oouchhhh, that was good! “Ever hear of mutton dressed as lamb? Own it” Remember, during lost footage, Kelly sat on Sonja’s bed discussing if Kellaide was a Cub or a Cougar? Kelly couldn’t get over the fact that she wasn’t a cub and 20 years old! Clearly kellusional.

    Peta couldn’t use her. They are not pleased, but don’t argue leather. To take on Kelly would mean you have to play both sides. She is the antithesis of what Peta stands for, but they realize it’s cruel to abuse animals encased in summer bronze leather as well.

        One thing, though, I wouldn’t doubt that she thinks this is getting her more attention. After all, I think she cried on cue in all but two episodes this past season. What a histrionic beotch! You know, Zarin, acting the fool DOESN’T get you the right kind of attention.

    Are you the same desertgal that posted to Amazon? If so, thank you for that post. I hadn’t even thought about that. But in the back of my mind I kept thinking “who the hell are you to try to intimidate me into silence!” LOL! I also filed a harassment complaint with Amazon. If that person keeps it up, I’ll do the same as Alana. She’s really got a rise out of that troll with the twitter identity fraud complaint! LOL!

    • desertgal66 says:

      Yes, that was me, and you’re welcome. 🙂

      I have no patience with these people that scream “oh, you are slandering Jill Zarin and Amazon is going to get you!”

      First of all, unless they are retained by Amazon as legal counsel, who are they to say who Amazon is going to “get”? You don’t speak for the company unless you work for the company-otherwise, it’s called misrepresentation.

      Secondly, freedom of speech still prevails in this country, but if Amazon does feel that a comment is offensive, then, in most cases, they satisfy legalities by simply deleting it from their site. They are certainly not bound by law to clog up courtrooms with ridiculous slander charges just because some yahoo with a bug up their ass thinks they should.

      I mean, our courts are jammed up enough with REAL cases. There are children being assaulted and abused every single day, but, by all means, let’s jam the courts up with the really important cases of fictitious slander-the abused kids can wait.

      Lastly, I’m sick to death of hearing about all these people who are supposedly “slandering” Jill Zarin just because she hasn’t got the sense God gave a grasshopper to keep from damaging her own reputation by not zipping it. Who the hell asked her to publish some stupid book anyway? I didn’t see the American public clamoring for an inane book about how to bag a rich guy with sexual favors and pour liquid on food as a shoddy diet tip.

      JILL put herself out there from the second the cameras first went up, and again when she hired a ghostwriter to pen the damn book, so she has only herself to blame that she revealed herself to be the shallow vindictive, blowsy hair extension, gimcrack bracelet mess that she is.

      You’ve got Bawby’s money behind you, JILL. Either file charges against all these people whom you claim are “slandering” you and allow a judge to decide, or STFU already.

      Rant over.

      • Dani says:

        You go girl……love this you are so right.

      • I think most everybody is getting fed up with Jill’s tactics and her trolly fans. Not a lot worse (but there are a few things, like child abuse) than someone trying to bully others into silence. Freedom of speech is one of our most precious gifts and it is to be respected and cherished and fought for when necessary.

        Thanks again! 🙂

I’m glad he tweeted that information because there was no mention made at all in the Houston newspaper front page article today. He seems pretty excited about meeting Mayor Parker (first openly gay mayor of a major city). I was surprised to not see any mention of him at all and it was a pretty long article about the events and how to get there, etc. I’ll see in the morning if they include any Andy Cohen pictures.

    • Adios Lunatic says:

      News just showed Andy and then did a pretty long interview with him, mentioned his name A LOT and said BRAVO A LOT. Also wasn’t an NBC interview but rather the CBS affiliate. Unfortunately, Andy didn’t represent well (maybe it was editing……………).

        I tried to read your description [“limping, ball-less and have a cone on your head”] to my husband, but dissolved so frequently into laughter and tears that it took my about 10 minutes.

      • LiptonTB says:

        OMG! I am laughing so hard. I just brought my doggies home from vet — one had a little (benign) tumor removed from her tush and the other, stitches following encounter with grumpy ground hog.
        No cone head necessary for my surgery patient because she can’t reach the stitches due to middle-age spread. LOL

    Jill knows what her trolls are doing. This is from her website. I took a screen shot of this page. Yes, Jill defames Lynn here, but we know the truth.

    so not surprised…if I unleash my fans on her..she won’t know what hit her. I really don’t pay attention to be honest..someone told me about her and found out she is the one who told people to send me threatening mail! I am a big girl and all the attention she gives us makes me more in demand in a wierd way for appearances. Sorry she bothered you though…you don’t deserve it! Jill

    Who is the “big girl” – Jill Zarin or Susan Saunders? It’s hard to keep track.

    “Weird Way” simply means that Jill is in demand because people love to hate her. She’s a laughingstock used for comic filler for the gossip columnists covering events. And she doesn’t even realize it.

    Lynn, Jill’s gonna unleash all 25 of her fans on you-which is really five people using five different names each. Hang tough, okay? 🙂

    • error 404 says:

      she forgot to mention that the increased demand will give her a larger platform to be charitable

    • Viki55 says:

      And what is with this “to be honest” stuff? Kelly says it every other sentence (if you can call them sentences). Now Jill? This isn’t the 1st time. Several interviews posted here lately have that phrase also.

    • Upper WestSide Dude says:

      Jill’s “big girls” were reduced via surgery post season one. I am sure “Oil Can Harry” (aka Bawby) misses burying his face into that lot.

    • tuzentswurth says:

      Same way Kelly thinks it is a good thing that”crazy sells”

    • Katiecoo says:

      Ya mean “wierd” way? And note: when JZ says “to be honest” related to anything, you can be assured she’s lying.

      So there! That’s me, unleashed. 😉

    • Quincy IL says:

      Jill must think that everyone on the planet is at war with each other. She loved the soldiers in Israel so she comes back to NYC and creates an army of fans to go to war with anyone who sees who she really is.

      This kind of behavior, words and threats from Jill Zarin makes me hate her.

      • LynnNChicago says:

        Jill doesn’t have an “army” she has one psychotic fan who is harassing everyone with 10 different names, including “Alana Chandler” but Jill and her fan will soon realize they messed with the wrong Amazon reviewer.

        Did anyone look at the photos Jill tweeted last night? She is wearing a long sleeve black dress fitting for fall or winter, everyone around her is in summer, light attire, she looks so stupid! (even Bobby is dressed appropriately)

  99. cusi77 says:

    Great Blog Lynn -as always! Hello everybody!

    Somebody could understand what JZ said to Coerte about Sonja at the Gotham party? I have watched several times and did not get it…

    • Viki55 says:

      Something about or like If you stick your tongue down her throat she will let you sit with her.

    • Jules says:

      I pretty sure she said, if you stick your tongue down her throat she might go home with you. I may not have it exactly right, but Andy quoted it exactly to Jill at the Reunion show in I believe Part 2. Jill apologized for saying it, and said she was just trying to be funny like Bethenny. LuAnn said she thought Jill was saying it to her, and Alex said it came out icky. Hope that helps.

      • Adios Lunatic says:

        You guys have it right. Lovely comment to make about someone she hardly knows — even Coerte acted like it was a vile thing to say.

        I actually thought the worst one was her telling LuAnn that she could tell how little time she spent on the invitation to Cocktails and Couture.

    • Jules says:

      Okay, I just watched the replay of Andy addressing this comment on Reunion Part 2, and I can now definitively say that Jill said “If you stick your tongue down her throat, she might let you sit at her table.” 100% certain.

      • Katiecoo says:

        Yup that’s how I remember it. Is this kind of thing in the Countess’ etiquette book?

  100. cusi77 says:

    error- Congratulations! I saw your video “Work of Art”… I agree a 100% about you.

    Do you have a Degree in Art?

  101. cusi77 says:

    sorry… agree a 100% WITH you!

  102. desertgal66 says:

    Lynn, new banner possibility for you:

    (If you don’t choose to use it, I won’t be offended.) 🙂

  103. Jennifer says:

    For whoever asked several blogs ago about girl in silver dress in Bravo commercial if it’s Kelly- it is not Kelly, it is woman photographer from new Bravo show so no Kelly sumer show on Bravo

    • Adios Lunatic says:

      Indrani from Double Exposure. I tried watching last week but couldn’t stand it for more than 5 minutes. Does anyone else watch this show?

      • Viki55 says:

        I could not watch it either. And I won’t be watching DC. I think I will miss being in the loop and getting (understanding) all the great snarky comments.

        • Adios Lunatic says:

          I may watch DC although I hate the Salahi’s getting any additional press. I may replace OC with DC depending on what they do to fix the casting on OC. I cannot stand Alexis and her double-d standards nor do I want to see Slade any more. BTW — have you noticed no pictures of Gretchen/Slade on Bravo’s website lately? They have been a staple there and now nothing?

          • viki55 says:

            You are right, there has been nothing with the two of them. I so hope Slade is gone. I didn’t think Gretchen was that stupid. As for DC, I think that whole city is toxic. I don’t think there is anyone real there anymore. If evil has a home in this country it is in DC.

            • bamabelle57 says:

              If evil has a home in this country it is in DC.
              AMEN TO THAT!

      • error 404 says:

        It looked horrid and I didn’t intend to watch, but somehow it was just on and we were both too lazy to turn it off right away. LOL.

        I saw the entire scene of the diner shoot. *shrug* It wasn’t completely awful, but I won’t ever bother watching again.

        I can’t believe how hooked on RHoNY I am, I usually hate these type of shows, preferring the more challenge oriented ones like Project Runway, Top Chef, etc… you know, the ones where talented people actually make something useful.

        • Adios Lunatic says:

          I’m with you, 404. I love Top Chef but have been a little disappointed since Runway moved to Lifetime although I was glad they went back to NY.

          I stumbled on RHNY when I started working from home. I’m so used to loud work environments that I have to have noise to concentrate — so I have the TV on all day and ran out of things to watch and stumbled on RHNY and OC reruns — got hooked from there.

          • error 404 says:

            Ugh, Lifetime is ruining PR, but I’m too far gone in my addiction to give it up.

            I don’t know how I stumbled upon RHoNY but I don’t think I ever would have tuned in a 2nd time if it wasn’t for Bethenny. I’ve watch about a total of 10 whole minutes of RHoOC, RHoA & RHoNJ combined, and that was about 9 minutes too many. 9 minutes of my life I’ll never get back!

            I’m the opposite. Since working from home I go days without even turning the set on. No longer a need to veg and unwind at the end of the day.

    • bamabelle57 says:

      That was me Jennifer. Someone else watched it over and said it was that girl from the new show, which I watched for 5 or 10 minutes. Not interested in that at all. I’m glad that was cleared up because it scared me…

      Kelly did say to Andy that she obviously had some things in the works that she couldn’t talk about. She didn’t mind talking about her feather jewelry, or her charitable things… what’s in the works that can’t “obviously” can’t be talked about?

      That sounded to me like Andy knew what she was talking about. If she’s getting a show of her own… I’m done with Bravo!… DONE!

      • Katiecoo says:

        I think what is in the works that obviously can’t be talked about includes something along the lines of hospitalization. Or at least a “long rest” somewhere in a confined environment.

      • error 404 says:

        If Kiki gets her own show I will be truly torn. OT1H I’ll be dying to see what the crazy bitch is going to be such a hot mess over. OTOH I’ll want to stay away just so it will maybe crash and burn. Oh, decisions, decisions. OYAH, I find it hard to sit thru any video of her that’s over 4 minutes, so….

  104. cusi77 says:

    Haaa! Is great! OMG!

  105. cusi77 says:

    Jill looked SO CHEAP at The reunion… like a working girl in Hollywood Blv.

  106. cusi77 says:

    Could somebody tell what JZ said about Sonja to Courte or Coerte (?) (huge tongue)

    • error 404 says:

      don’t remember exactly, but it was something like “If you want to sit next to her , just stick your tongue down her throat!”

    • RileyKitty says:

      When she said Sonja would let Coerte sit next to her if he stuck his tongue down her throat?

      Jill is a nasty bitch!

      • RileyKitty says:

        BTW my new pic is of Ryan with his leg bandage & cone 🙂

        • cusi77 says:

          Riley_ I will let you a question in your blog.

        • Oh, a leg bandage? I thought he got fixed. Didn’t see your original post. Poor feller! Wow, I can barely see Ryan, but no cone or bandage. Are my eyes that bad! 😦 He’s a cutie!

        • Viki55 says:

          Can you put it on your blog? I can’t see it.

        • Adios Lunatic says:

          We need a bigger picture — he sure looks cute though from what I can see.

          Get well soon, Ryan.

        • bamabelle57 says:

          Poor Kitty-Cat… Hope he gets well soon.

          I have 2, both rescued after someone threw them out. Susie is a year old, my son found her at Hardee’s last summer. And Sam… we’ve had him 3 weeks this Monday. Someone threw him out at our church near a busy highway. We think he was about 3 weeks old when he was abandoned.

          • RileyKitty says:

            how can people do that? Ours are both rescues as well. Riley was found by my sister by the dumpster of her apartment building. She was so tiny she had to be bottle fed. Ryan came from the plant my hubby works at, he was caught in a live trap & getting ready to be taken to a shelter.

            • error 404 says:

              trying to be “glass half full”: at least they found homes. I can’t believe the people who drown kittens! *shudder* Get your friggin pets spade.

  107. cusi77 says:

    How rude!


  108. cusi77 says:

    If JZ returns for another season… who will trust her among her castmates?

    • Adios Lunatic says:

      Does anyone trust her now?

    • error 404 says:

      I think Bethenny is the only one who ever fully trusted her, and that’s why she got so burned.

      Kiki only trusted her recently, but it’s too late. If Kiki gets asked back, that’s it… the world is flat and the sky is green

      Lulu doesn’t trust anyone, which makes perfect sense as Lulu is untrust worthy.

      Ramona never trusted Jill, and is probably dancing a little pinot gig that Jill has finally been exposed for the bitch R always knew her to be.

      I don’t think Alex ever really trusted her either, as all of Jill’s slights and insults are ready to Alex’s tongue and when someone really is a trusted friend, like B was, they are blindsighted by the attack, as B was. Alex is too collected and calm in her confrontations, she obviously always had one eye open with reagard to Jill.

      Sonja neither trusts nor knows Jill, but she’s too smart not to have picked up all the warning signs. Her take on Jill’s “surprise” visit to VI was very savy IMO.

      • cusi77 says:

        So true… that was the reason B said in her comment while crying in the street (after WE ARE DONE!) she felt like the death… it was the the death of a frienship… who has lost a friend knows what it is like…

  109. cusi77 says:

    Kelly….. I guess….

  110. Katiecoo says:

    There is a troll goin cuckoo on Amazon right now. Talkin about cookies and how JZ is pretty. lol

    • error 404 says:

      Peanut butter cookies? Remember the cooks on the Olga made Kiki pb cookies for breakfast!?

    • Need a Hobby says:

      Did you get to see two of “Joe’s” posts before he edited them? Content was the same but they appeared under the name “Kyle.” oops.

      • Need a Hobby says:

        Then an “Alana” posted and that changed the Kyle/Joe posts to “Alana. ” Except Joe’s profile still showed up for Alana’s posts. And now “Alana” is gone, the nick showing is “Joe.”


  111. error 404 says:

    OMG in another minute I’m gonna start yelling “Then go to sleep! Go to sleep!” at myself! Insomnia sucks.

  112. Katiecoo says:

    Sorry if this is a repeat…just saw it…interesting!

    Alex tells me she’s penning a “roman a clef about the dark underbelly of reality television.” Watch out Jill Zarin!

    “I just had to ask Alex what she thought of Jill’s tearful performance at the marathon three-part reunion show, which culminated in Jill basically begging former BFF Bethenny Frankel for a hug. (I’m told the women shot for nine hours with very little down time.) “It was a long day,” says Alex. “I don’t know whether it was genuine or not.” But she didn’t hold back in describing Jill’s backstabbing behavior overall: “When you have nothing else in your life, you can sit around and scheme like a character in Dangerous Liaisons.” ”
