I Hate Jill Zarin Big Brother July 25, 2010
When last we left the houseguests they were all balancing on the end of a surfboard with ice cold water pouring down on them with nothing to hold onto. The last one standing will take over the Head of Household from the raggedy Rachel.
Rachel’s reign as Head of Household is coming to an end but not before she accomplished her goal of having either Brittney or Monet evicted from the house. Brittney won the power of veto and of course removed herself from the block.
In a surprise move, Brigade member, Matt offered himself up as a pawn to put on the block in the hopes that he would have enough votes to stay in the house and Monet would go home. His plan worked, risky as it was, he did have his three Brigade members so he was fairly safe.
The women are quickly eliminated from the Head of Household challenge and then Hayden claims that he purposely jumped down because he didn’t want a target on his back. The first five who fell can eat anything they like but the last four to fall (or jump) will be the have-not’s for the week and will sleep in the gross bedroom and eat slop all week.
Regan and Matt are the final two left standing and Regan asks the other houseguests to leave them alone to discuss the circumstances. Matt isn’t interested in a deal and everyone returns to watch the end of the contest. Matt finally wins when Regan loses his footing and falls into the water below.
Rachel and Brendon are worried because they betrayed Matt by announcing to the house that Matt offered himself up as the pawn last week. Oops, Matt did ask them to keep quiet about that little bit of information. Rachel decides to immediately go and talk to Matt to see how he’s thinking and to her horror, she is absolutely right, Matt is pissed at her and Brendon. The only chance Rachel has now is to try to make Matt choose someone else to target for eviction by making him think there is a bigger threat in the house.
What Rachel and Brendon don’t know is that Matt is part of the Brigade that includes Hayden, Enzo and the guy I call “the Bull” Lane. Matt isn’t going to see Brittney or Kristin as a threat, what the Brigade doesn’t know is that Matt has a bit of a hard-on for Kathy since he knows she voted for him during the eviction. He would be a little crazy to go after Kathy now, she doesn’t seem to be much of a competitor in challenges. For a police officer, Kathy doesn’t have much luck with the physical challenges.
Hayden’s secret romance with Kristin is heating up and the Brigade is coming close to finding out what is going on.
Matt is also playing the sympathy card and lying to his housemates about his wife being ill. I get that Big Brother contestants have to do whatever they can to win a million dollars, but there really should be somewhere that these people draw the line. Saying his wife is ill, Matt has crossed my line. His letter from his wife played right into his lie to his houseguests.
Matt is trying to play the power game and send out some hints that he may not make the obvious choice of nominees of Rachel and Brendon. Why? Because he’s missing the sucking up, the begging and the offers. No one is requesting meetings with Matt asking to be saved from the block this week because everyone is just assuming that he will put up the obvious two, Rachel and Brendon. If Matt is smart, he will do just that, he will maintain any trust that he’s already built and the only two people who will be unhappy with his decision are the two who already screwed him over anyway and at the end of the day, one of them will be gone and the other will have no power.
It seems so easy to play this game from my living room, why can’t these people in the house see things as clearly as we all can from our homes?
In the end Matt nominated Kathy and Andrew. He managed to piss off pretty much everyone in the house with these nominees. The Brigade wants to break up the sickening couple Brendon and Rachel so they don’t understand why Matt nominated Kathy and Andrew, Kathy doesn’t have much power so I doubt she can do a whole lot of damage to Matt over the next 7-days but you never know. Matt certainly made Andrew angry and I think we all know that if Rachel and Brendon stay in the house, they’re certainly not going to keep their word to Matt and keep him off the block.
This may be one of those turning points that can be looked back upon and seen as a really bad move made by a houseguest that screws up their own game.
We’ll see later this week.
Less than 24 Hours until we are treated to another episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, more of the fight, the hair pulling, the court case. The sad thing about all of this is that we knew about this incident 6 months ago when it actually happened, it was all over the news at the time and we knew that Bravo had filmed it all and that we would have to re-live all the trashy fighting again when the show airs. So here we are watching it all unfold knowing all along that Ashley will get a mere slap on the wrist.
Maybe knowing that Ashley gets off all but scot free could be the reason so many are so irritated with her ignorance. The outcome could have been very different. Simple assault was the charge and a small fine under $200 and probation was all that Ashley received as punishment.
Another annoyingly long blog was posted by Ashley but even more disturbing than Ashley’s blog, are some of the comments. Someone at Bravo is laughing their ass off as they post these:
dannell did not deserve the derespect or what yall keep doing to her all of you deserve to go to jail.teresa started it she ontinues to keep crap stired up she is a ugly person her eyes are on the side of her head. She is weird looking all of these women a two faced bitches, kim g it awful go away
Honestly, I did not alter one word, it is posted there!
YOU WILL LOOK BACK AND THINK HOW YOUNG YOU WERE. YOUR STEP DAD IS THE ONLY ONE WHO SEEMS TO GIVE THE BEST ADVICE. HOPE YOU CHANGE YOUR TONE.
I really like this one:
When my daughter was 18, she yelled at me: “I am an ADULT!” I calmly told her: “I have many adult friends and none of them have to tell me they are ‘adults’. I just know it by their actions.” Ashley, we will know you are an adult when you act like one.
This one is pretty good too:
I had to crack up when you knelt by Andy on his show to explain what happened that night. It was obvious that you assumed you were going to be part of the watch what happens show but Andy dismissed you right after you spoke. I think Burger King is hiring…..just sayin.

The first week of August is a big week for Bravo, they are premiering all sorts of shows:
August 3, Rachel Zoe returns for another season of Bananas! I go back and forth with this show, sometimes I find it entertaining and interesting and other times I could take it or leave it. There is no doubt Ms. Zoe is ridiculously over the top dramatic about clothes and accessories. Come on Rachel, these are just clothes and accessories. This is what created the Twitter war/drama between Rachel and Bethenny. I get why Bethenny got annoyed and tweeted something about Zoe being ridiculous about her business. She’s not saving lives here, feeding the hungry or housing the homeless but she sometimes acts as though her business is life and death. It is a bit much!
Note: This is the Rachel that crazy Kelly mentioned during RHONY on the Virgin Islands when she was ripping into Bethenny.
August 5,The Real Housewives of DC – in a future blog, I plan to dissect each of these ladies to the best of my ability with the information that is out there on the web.
August 10, Flipping Out returns for a fourth season, This is just a fun show to watch! Jeff and his employees are hysterical! It will be interesting to see the changes without Ryan, Jeff’s former business partner . I really liked Ryan but honestly I don’t think the show will miss him all that much. The core of Jeff, Jenni and Zoila are what make the show so great!
Andy Cohen Tweets this morning:
Happy Monday! Tonight is our “Goodbye til September” wwhl season finale featuring @Bethenny, Rachel Dratch, and Kim G! #Mondayfunday
There is our answer about the surprise guest from New Jersey….<everyone eyeroll together now> Kim G? Really? Augh!
If there were still any questions about the Orange County cast, another tweet:
AlexisBellino Filming starts today for season 6! Here we come San Diego! I packed 12 suitcases for a family of 5 for 4 days! I need help!!!
From Bethenny’s Facebook Page:
Bethenny Frankel hey everyone – have been taking a breather in the hamptons this weekend! if you are still up, im on ‘geraldo at large’ on FoxNews at 10:30! let me know what you think!
Did anyone see Bethenny’s appearance? I missed it so I hope someone will post a link or at least let us know how she did!
I reviewed some of the posts on Jill Zarin’s blog (from her web site) and was interested to find out that holier than thou Maggie Reynolds, keeper of the keys and grounds at the Zarin compound doesn’t like negative comments, unless they are about Bethenny. THOSE comments she will approve for posting, one comment even goes into detail about Bethenny’s breast implants, as if this Jill fan knows all about what Bethenny has had done. Funnily enough she says that Bethenny has had a “breast lift” and criticizes her for it. In fact, Jill readily admitted to having a “breast lift” on last year’s reunion. Duh?
One post actually calls Bethenny “sad”. That’s the last adjective I ‘d use to describe Bethenny right now, I think she’s the happiest she’s ever been in her entire life! (just a guess)
The point is Maggie Reynolds claims to want to keep the negativity off of Jill’s site and there are plenty of posts that profess their love for Jill Zarin and tell Jill their own life stories so why does Reynolds feel the need to post the negative and nasty comments about Bethenny? Show some class Ms. Reynolds and take the high road for a change. If you’re trying to improve Jill’s image, why not just be positive? Dragging up the book nonsense and Amazon-gate coupled with the negativity you’re allowing on Jill’s web page are not improving Jill’s image, just adding fuel to the fire that was just dying out.
One of Jill’s fans tweeted to her asking her what was fun to do in NYC as they were visiting the city soon. Jill’s response? “How about a trip to Zarin Fabrics?” This isn’t funny, this is rude! It would have been more courteous to ignore the question than answer it the way that she did! That’s Jill for ya!

One of the newest Atlanta Housewives apparently got married in front of Bravo’s cameras for the upcoming season, but Bravo seemed rather annoyed that word got out before they could air the wedding:
Until Next Time……….
