I Hate Jill Zarin Weekend News July 24, 2010
Twitter has given us a lot of information about the activities of some of the Housewives for the weekend.
Caroline Manzo has taken her daughter Lauren to visit Jill Zarin and her daughter Ally out in the Hamptons for the weekend. Jill Tweeted this:
The girls are ready to rumble @carolinemanzo ! http://twitpic.com/2816l4
Jill being Jill also has to make sure that we know that she’s also on top of where all of the other housewives are this weekend, another tweet from Jill:
Luann will be at Bridgehampton Library tomorrow at 11:30. “Tell ladies to bring their teens as I talk about manners”. Should be fun!
CountessLuAnn I’m on the host committee of the MacDella Cooper Foundation’s 2010 “Champions of Education” Benefit this Saturday…
Yes, should be fun, I remember the last time that Luann taught a bunch of teenagers about etiquette, she was rude and condescending, particularly when one of the teens decided to dare ask a question.
Then Jill decides to give us the itinarary for Teresa Giudice:
Yay! @caroline_manzo @dinamanzo @jillzarin @countessluann @ teresa_giudice & @jaclaurita all hosting the MCF benefit in Hamptons 2morrow!
Teresa confirms what Jill has told us:
Come see me today in the Hamptons at Shoe Inn from 2-4pm. Shoe Inn is on 121 Main St in West Hampton….Cant wait to see you!
Then Cavewoman Teresa confirms her arrival:
I here West Hampton at Shoe Inn…
So at last count we have Jill, Luann, Teresa, Caroline along with Caroline and Jill’s daughters, Lauren and Ally all hanging out together in the Hamptons. Then Teresa adds:
After my Skinny Italian book signing today, Im hosting the MacDella Cooper Foundation event with @jaqlaurita Special thanks to @nicolaparish
So add to the list of Housewives in The Hamptons, Jacqueline… One place I’m glad I’m not this weekend, The Hamptons!
@JacLaurita Having fun in the Hamptons meeting great people at Teresas book signing. http://yfrog.com/07y5smj
Even Bethenny is enjoying the Hamptons this weekend:

Stopping by a dinner in Bridgehampton 4 the The MacDella Cooper Foundation. @jillzarin @dinamanzo @teresaguidice @carolinemanzo c u there!!
Mario and I now heading to the fabulous Watermill Benefit for cocktails. Its always such an amazing event.
So if I’m getting this right, all of the New Jersey Housewives, Jill and Luann will be at the MacDella Cooper Foundation dinner.
Jill and the Jersey girls went to a polo match earlier in the day where Ramona and Bethenny were also watching the match.
Kelly, yes she was in the Hamptons too, here are her tweets:
Just saved a duck in sag harbor

Kelly is having an exciting weekend. Saving a duck and showing off jewelry made of string.
Alex and Simon were in Ashbury Park, New Jersey while all the Jersey girls are in the Hamptons. Alex and Simon had two book signings and talked about dinner with their family and drinks with friends!
Alex and Simon are using a program called FourSquare which allows you to easily tweet the name and address of your location at any given time. Maybe they don’t have any concerns about fans bothering them wherever they are because they are tending to tweet their location frequently:
After an amazing signing at Bodega Shoppe, a quick drink before the next stop! (@ Watermark) http://4sq.com/cmAbHo
Checking in although we’ve been here for 2 hours 😉 (@ Bodega Shoppe w/ @simonvankempen) http://4sq.com/9vhq7I
Looking forward to a fabulous lunch! (@ Tim McLoones Supper Club) http://4sq.com/b3jfyO
NeNe Leakes of The Atlanta Housewives tends to tweet a lot of nonsense, but here are a few that may be of interest:
All these fake friendships b trippin me out! I’m women enough & strong enough 2 STAND ALONE! It’s called, knowing who u r! Take note
People kill me sayin they so happy & so blessed! Well if u r, u don’t have 2 keep sayin it! It will shine through but Only if u really r!
NeNe likes to tweet in riddles telling us that something has happened, yet not providing enough information to really know the details. It is pretty frustrating. She’s also too old to be using the phrase, “b trippin me out”. Comeon NeNe, you want to be taken seriously, act like a grown woman.
Yesterday NeNe tweeted this:
Hey tweeties follow my son @Bricebryant he needs new friends n his life
I don’t doubt the child needs new friends, isn’t this her son who has had drug / jail problems?
Gretchen Rossi tweeted today that filming for the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Orange County began today. The question is, who will return and who will not. Congratulations to Bravo for keeping any negotiations and signings secret as no news has been spilled about the new season.
I tweeted to Gretchen:
LynnNChicago: @GretchenRossi give us good news and tell us Vicki left the show??
To which I received a Private DM from Gretchen:
GretchenRossi: @LynnNChicago Haha! Your cute!
Do you suppose that means no?
Rumor has it that Jeanna is returning and of course Gretchen, Vicki and Tamra. No confirmation on Lynne or Alexis. There is even a rumor that Laurie wanted to return.
The two additional Housewives franchises of DC and Beverly Hills have really affected the filming schedule for the other shows. Atlanta is currently filming and Orange County typically would have been filming for a few months already by this time. New York would normally begin filming in August but Andy Cohen told us to “sit tight until 2011” when asked about the New York cast.
Obviously the more Housewife franchises, the less filming for the existing groups since there is only so much air time. Flipping Out and Rachel Zoe are returning, Top Chef is still going strong and Bravo has introduced Top Chef Desserts coming soon. Do you think that Bravo is trying to be like all of the “real” networks and have three all new one hour shows on each evening? With just a few exceptions Bravo was giving us only one hour per day of new original programming. Now Top Chef shares their evening with Double Exposure and I believe Kathy Griffin shares her night with Work of Art. (something like that)
This year was the first year we’ve seen Bravo overlap two of their Housewives series and it will continue as The DC Housewives will begin in just a few weeks. Unfortunately we’re not nearly done with New Jersey! With a total of six different housewives shows running 14 weeks each…well you do the math.
I’m looking forward to the Real Housewives of DC premier, it has to be an improvement over New Jersey, that show just makes you feel dirty! New Jersey with their improper English, Mob-like scenes and dialogue, physical altercations, no one on that show is realistic just knowing that they’re all just playing at being rich! I just hope that none of the DC Housewives have angry teenagers with bad attitudes.
Surprisingly Andy Cohen is missing the big Hamptons weekend, he seems to like to be in the middle of all the fun. Instead he just returned from a few days at his old summer camp in Wisconsin.
Last week’s Watch What Happens Live was so horrible that I didn’t even discuss it in my blogs. I was just disgusted by the one year anniversary show being so extremely dull and difficult to watch. When Danielle was asked about Kim G her answer of “who?” is getting pretty old although Andy should have seen it coming, I sure did! Why would her answer change when she was just on a few weeks ago?
Danielle is the worst talk show guest in the history of WWHL, Jeff Lewis can be a fairly entertaining guest but usually he has to be accompanied by his sidekick, Jenni and it helps if the season is actually in progress so that there is something to talk with him about.
This week Andy will welcome Bethenny back onto Watch What Happens Live and he also promised a “surprise from New Jersey”. Bethenny always makes for an excellent guest, she gives more than just one word answers and never holds anything back. She will answer any question thrown at her!
I have a feeling we’re not going to be too thrilled with the “New Jersey surprise” this week as the choices are, one of the housewives? I don’t think so because Jacqueline, Teresa and Danielle have all appeared in just the past few weeks. Caroline hasn’t been on lately but I doubt it is her. I certainly hope it isn’t Dina because if she is gone, she needs to stay gone! What if it is one or both of the Kim’s? Or do you suppose little Ben (whatshisname) is back from summer camp? Andy got Bethenny on the show again, why on earth would he sully the waters with another guest?
I would actually love it if Andy brought Teresa on the show and let Bethenny go at her! It’s no secret that these two women don’t get along and Teresa has openly attacked Bethenny on Twitter. Bethenny is much more subtle and does it in People magazine online interviews! Face to face would be amazing!
I’d still love to see Sonja confront Teresa on her horrible comments on her Bravo blog. Teresa was brutal to Sonja for absolutely no reason.
I noticed that many of you saw the blog about Jill’s book and the Amazon fiasco. If you haven’t seen it, good, I see no point in giving it any more hits than it deserves. I agree with only one point that Maggie makes. (Maggie is Jill’s internet watchdog who deletes all those mean comments from Jill’s blog and Facebook page). The Alana Chandler review of Jill’s book comments are no longer comments about Jill’s book, but shouldn’t Maggie and Jill be happy about that? They had STOPPED talking about what a horrible book it was, stopped talking about Jill’s review of her own book, stopped talking about Jill’s bad behavior. Shouldn’t Maggie and Jill Zarin be thrilled that the heat is off? Apparently not, she chose to bring it all up again so what the hell? Let’s talk about it all again!
This blog was glaringly short on facts including the fact that Jill Zarin aka Susan Saunders attacked Alana Chandler, Jill wrote a review of her own book and wrote horrible reviews of Bethenny and Alex’s books. Maggie left out the fact that Jill Zarin also sent Alana Chandler an email that was never released to the public, she called Alana Anti-Semitic and talked about taking away this woman’s cat, (when in fact Alana has only a dog). There are so many other things that Jill has done that negates all of the advice in the book.
The most important thing that Maggie left out of her blog was that it was just a BAD BOOK! There is no getting around that fact. A letter writing campaign to Amazon won’t fix that, removing Alana Chandler’s review won’t fix that, nothing can fix that. Maggie, why don’t you go back to your boss and tell her to write a better book, that’s the only thing that will fix that.
Good job with the blog Maggie, I hadn’t brought up Jill’s bad behavior and Amazon-gate in weeks, probably months, but you gave me a great reason to bring it all up again! Let’s Discuss …
Until Next Time…….
