I Hate Jill Zarin Big Brother / Project Runway July 30, 2010

Eviction day!

Rachel is acting like an idiot, she is upset because she thinks that Andrew and Brenden worked some sort of deal behind her back. Brenden actually told her he loved her in order to calm her down (I can only assume he was trying to calm her down and didn’t really mean he loved her) Rachel isn’t buying it, she goes back to talking about game play and tells him that he’s playing with fire. Based on her fake hair color, she may be right. Kathy is playing on everyone’s emotion telling them that she barely has enough food to feed her family? Could Kathy be playing the group I mean, she’s a Deputy Sheriff, and while that may not pay a fortune, she should be comfortable.

Andrew starts to cry, has no one to talk to and feels like the outsider. He can’t take it anymore and starts to scream at Kristin. Andrew says, “don’t play me like a fiddle, I know you’re playing me, don’t do it anymore”. Andrew starts shit with Kristin, what an idiot! Andrew says Kristin is digging her grave and to be careful. Andrew is the one digging his own grave, apparently the pressure has really gotten to Andrew. The Brigade is talking about voting Kathy out because Andrew is putting himself in danger and that may take the heat off of them. Leaving Andrew in the house will make him the next target by whoever the next HOH may be. Particularly if it is Rachel or Brenden win HOH.

Big Brother interviews Matt’s wife about his lie – Matt told everyone that his wife was ill, a bone condition. His wife says that she was extremely upset and shocked, and doesn’t agree with his decision to use this lie for sympathy. His wife says he isn’t evil but I think he is evil. Kathy talks about how malicious it is to lie about a loved one being sick or dying and Matt vocally agrees with her. This guy is sick and I think he needs to be kicked out of the house as soon as possible. I so wish that he would be found out and even his buddy’s in the Brigade turn against him in the end!

Matt calls Hayden the weak link in the Brigade, he does say he thinks that Hayden and Kristin may have something going on or may be the longtime friends. It is time for the eviction voting and both nominees are allowed to plead their case to stay in the house. Kathy says she loves all of her houseguests, she talks about her family, her job, integrity and loyalty. Andrew completely lost his mind and starts to talk very quickly telling everyone’s secrets. Hayden and Kristin are snuggling under the blankets when they think no one is around, he mentions almost every name with some sort of comment and basically Andrew just took himself out.

All Eight houseguests vote for Andrew to be evicted from the Big Brother house, when talking to Julie, she asks him why he didn’t use the information that he had about Hayden and Kristin to try to get their votes, the light bulb goes off and he realizes that is exactly what he should have done but he never thought of it. Andrew is a doctor? What was this guy thinking? He went off on absolutely everyone in the room. He offended or outted every single person. I swear Big Brother manages to find the biggest idiots every year. Everyone hugs Kathy, she’s staying and they now all need to get ready for a competition.

The Head of Household competition results in Rachel, once again being HOH, another week of that voice like nails on a chalkboard! It will be interesting to see if she targets Matt even though she promised not to put him on the block.

Project Runway

The 17 designers are immediately put to the challenge upon arrival. The designers aren’t allowed to even see where they will be staying or put their suitcases away and there’s a very good reason for that.

They’re instructed that their first challenge will eliminate one or more designers immediately. They are told by Heidi to open their cases and take out one garment that will be used in their very first design. They will have only 5-hours to utilize this garment in their first design. As always with Project Runway, there is a twist, they have to pass their garment on to the person next to them and utilize their cast mate’s garment rather than their own.

Mood has come to the designers rather than the other way around for this challenge which is a great change in that there is no budget, they’re able to choose anything they want to use from the fabrics available. Casanova stood out to me right away as he chose the pants out of his suitcase that apparently cost him over $1,000. Why would someone choose those knowing that you were going to have to utilize the fabric for another garment? What the hell is with this guy’s little boy neck tie? If this guy is knocked out after the first challenge having given up his ridiculously expensive pants, I will feel a tad bit sorry for him.

Peach Cobb is the oldest designer at 51 years old and is actually a neighbor of mine, (although I don’t know her personally) she is from Lake Forest Illinois which is just a hop, skip and a jump from my home, Lake Forest is the home of the Chicago Bears training camp and some very famous sports legends live there, in fact it is the hometown of the late Walter Payton, as well as Michael Jordan and Mike Ditka. Located on the North Shore of Lake Michigan it is one of the most expensive neighborhoods in the Chicago area.

Kudos to Peach for following her dream at any age and making the cut onto Project Runway. I hope she does well! I don’t think that Tim was being fair by giving Peach all of the help he did, in fact, he basically told her how to deal with the challenging fabric that she ended up having to work with for her design.

The most annoying thing about some of these designers is when they interview about how poorly their peers are doing. When they mention the fact that they should be ok in the challenge because they feel that one or more of their peers are worse than they are is a cop out! Your design should stand on its own and not just be better than the worst one there. That is no way to win Project Runway!

While Heidi threatened that there may be more than one, McKell was the only one sent home in the end and I totally did not feel that was fair, I thought her dress was cute, it certainly wasn’t the best in the crowd but it was better than some. There was the unfinished, threads hanging outfit that should have been thrown off the runway!

I sometimes wish that Project Runway would bring back some of the designers who may have been eliminated prematurely, there seems to be so many of them that stick out in my mind.  Maybe a whole season of 2nd chances would be a good idea? 

Tim Gunn seems to completely disagree with the judges choice as well, he told her it was cute in the workroom. I feel that sometimes Tim gets a tad too overzealous while visiting the designers. He clearly helped Peach and in past seasons I believe he may have been partially responsible for some designers going home. His role is really unclear and I think that sometimes he takes it upon himself to say too much. I really do love Tim Gunn, I just don’t like it when he seems to change the outcome of the challenge. His comments have caused designers to completely scrap their project and start over, would they have done that if Tim hadn’t given his strong opinion? Maybe, maybe not. And so begins another season of Project Runway…

The next to last episode of Bethenny’s Getting Married aired last night and will be the subject of my next blog. For now I’ll just say, I loved it! SOB!

Until Next Time…….

    Re: Big Brother , Can’t Stand Rachel. Waiting for your BGM blog. 🙂

  2. vilzvet says:

    Bringing this over:
    “Real Housewives of the Hamptons” Informative big article in today’s Newsday, with Sonja as the cover girl. Here is a summary:
    Alex: Rented a 3,000 s.f. Bridgehampton home for $7500K/week (not there anymore, she said they like to rent different places just for the weekend).
    Sonja: Renting a guesthouse on a Water Mill estate while the owners are away. An extensive garden she tends, and it’s located right next to a horsefarm. Her forthcoming book could be titled “Under 20 Minutes and 20 Dollars”.
    Jennifer: (don’t know why is she is given a big story) She owns a 6500 s.f. home in Sagaponack. Mentioned her 5-year-old daughter and 2-year-old twin boys.
    Jill: Renting for the summer (priced approx. $150,000 for the season) a Bridgehampton beach house.
    Ramona: Still has her Southampton house but it is for rent.
    Kelly: Still has the East Hampton house but says it is OFF the market.
    Luann: Received the Bridgehampton house in the divorce, still has it.
    Bethenny: Will be staying at the Montauk Yacht Club Resort and Marina when they go out there.

    • Quincy IL says:

      Thank you for this. I appreciate this research.

      • vilzvet says:

        Heheh, just typing, no research! It was great seeing Sonja as the lead girl 🙂 Another tidbit was that Dina Manzo called to rent the same house that Alex had vacated, unaware of this fact, she had been calling around several properties. FYI Bridgehampton is where Christie Brinkley has her huge property that she was unable to sell for 20 mil. She just took it off the market.

  3. cusi 77 says:

    Good Morning Lynn! Thank you for These great blogs.

    In Project Runway I saw several interesting outfits, many others were questionable.
    I also thought that Peach Cobb is going to be an interesting persona… I liked her work as well as her sense of humor!
    I was disappointed for the girl they let go. Casanova was my first choice for going home.

  4. Scorpiosue1102 says:

    Though I liked McKell’s dress I think what she paired with the dress: shoes, handbag, hair were completely off the mark. I’m just guessing that the judges may have liked the dress, but questioned her taste level with the pink handbag that didn’t go and the bad shoes.

    I actually hated Ivy’s outfit. The two pieces did not go together at all. Ugh.

    I have to say that I am liking the 90 minute format for the show. I’m curious to see if it ends up being too much after a while.

  5. I still have the issue with Comcast where I can’t watch Bravo without disrupting the televisions in my house. Anyhow, I missed BGM last night.
    Actually, I missed a few episodes now, so I’m hoping for a marathon.
    From what I’ve seen in comments, I really want to see last night’s BGM episode.
    In case anyone else has missed episodes, I’m posting this handy-dandy locate thingy.
    I love it, but if you want to get perfect results you have to enter your local info.,
    You can use it for any show on tv by entering the name of the show too.
    I had it set to NJ Housewives, and it looks like the next two episodes of NJ are titled, “Ashley goes to Jail ?” part 1, and Part 2, which is weird because they are promoting the Christening with Dina, and then the Italy trip.

    *EMT2 hope your mom is OK, please update us when you get a chance.

    • TLM says:

      What’s with Bravo and its never-ending question-mark titles? Bethenny Getting Married? Ashley Goes to Jail? Are they just being lazy? Is it time for a new title-writer?? You think??

  6. MickeyMouth says:

    Good blog. Big Brother has lost me this season. I barely watch anymore. No more model/actors and plot twists and maybe it will get good again.

    The winning dress on PR must have looked ABFAB in person because when it came down the runway I actually exclaimed aloud, how boring. It’s a shame that anyone goes home the first episode. As a viewer I would like an opportunity to see their work more than once before they are Auf’d.

    • anitabee says:

      I agree about the winning dress. It did move well but I thought it looked rather odd with the sleeves and sheer back.

      I thought Jason with his design that could have been mistaken for Garamel’s smurf outfit done in black should have been sent home.

  7. tod1963 says:

    I don’t know if anyone read’s Tom & Lorenzo’s Blog on Project Runway, but it is a really fun read. They started blogging about Runway when it was on Bravo, when it moved to Lifetime, Lifetime actually gave them a blog on the Runway official site. They also do a really interesting blog about Work Of Art and snark on a variety of different subjects.

  8. nancy says:

    WOW. Big, shack up on American Idol. Never saw this comong. On Reality Tea. Never watch until the end. But WOW, I mean WOW Best kept secret, I guess.

    • vilzvet says:

      To lose two judges is going to be big! Among the rumored replacements are Harry Connick Jr. and Steven Tyler(!) for Simon and Kara.

  9. nancy says:

    Oh, Lynn thank you so much for all that you do. Great place to come when family is gone for the day. Housework? who needs it, shopping for food, who needs it? pay bills, who needs it? Well I guess I do. Lol

    • nancy says:

      Oh well guess this is not the correct place to place a post. Again Lynn, thank you for your blog and time. Best wishes to all of you. Happy posting. I will just be a looker.

  10. jennifer says:

    And when it comes to Bethenny, and the claims that Teresa copied her by also having ‘Skinny’ in her book title, Teresa responded: “When “Skinny Italian” went to press, @Bethenny ’s only book was called “Naturally Thin.” They’re both great books, but totally different…”

    She then added, “PS- I love love LOVE @kimbarnouin & @Bethenny so no fake Twitter feuds… (even tho I’m sure B’s sad my book outsold hers in 1/2 the time).”

    These are quotes from Terrible Teresa above on her twitter- she is such a liar. B’s book is called “Naturally Thin-Unleashing Your Skinny Girl” and was published in S2 of RHONYC which was before Teresa even considered writing a book I am sure. My guess is someone (publicists, Joe…) named that book and she didn’t even stop to think she’d be called a follower….Sorry, B has had at least 2 NYT best sellers, wasn’t Teresa’s only on for a few weeks? Teresa needs to go away….

  11. Kelly_Has_Big-Shoulders says:

    Theresa is a Jealous Bitch!!! Like I said before she will probably call her next book a Place of Yes Italian.

    • boston02127 says:

      After seeing her husband without his shirt on, I question Teresa’s Skinny Italian cooking all together.

      • kats2 says:

        That’s for sure!

      • Lovebeth says:

        you can’t eat Italian foods and stay skinny not possible. U would have to work out like a mad woman to burn the calories from the pasta.

        • Quincy IL says:

          Bethenny mentions a trip to Italy and how the Italians really eat.

          We have an Italian restaurant owned by a man from Italy. At first, people thought he was not cooking the food correctly and then the learned that this is the way they make it in Rome.

      • TLM says:

        That is the quote of the week!!! Thank you Boston02127!!!!!

      • Melanie says:

        Me too. Joe is just plain fat. Teresa obviously thinks the viewers are dumber than she is by saying to Joe “You hafta quit working out so much”. I would guess he hasn’t lifted anything heavier than a fork in many years.

        (First time poster… love your site!)

        • Zoey says:

          Hi Melanie. Welcome! I’m pretty new here too. Everyone is really nice and quite funny, except for the occasional troll, who doesn’t stay around long.
          They are sort of like a bird passing overhead- they drop their crap on us, then they’re gone.

          I agree about no neck Joe, I don’t see him as ‘built’. Maybe built like a _______. Insert witticism here ladies! Let’s hear it!
          Maybe he’s always been thick, but he just seems chubby and chunky. It’s got to be hard when you’re only 3 feet tall.

          Yeah, the only things he lifts are forks and duffel bags of money to hide. I wonder where their hiding place is…
          Maybe that’s what that piece of equipment is that’s for sale, to dig in the yard!

  12. boston02127 says:

    Great blog Lynn, TY. BB isn’t holding my attention, I’m keeping up with it but I realized last night I don’t care who goes and who stays. In the past years that it has been on I’ve never disliked everyone in the house. They are not a likeable crowd this year. Rachael–ick and ick ick. Can’t stand her most of all.
    I laughed when I read what you wrote about Casanova’s mini tie. I thought the same thing. I like PR and think it gets better and better as it goes on.

  13. boston02127 says:

    @housewifehater— I really like that link that you posted. I saved it on my favorites. I like that it has a reminder. I know that once I get my reminders set for all the new shows I’ll be using it all the time. Thank you. 🙂

  14. kats2 says:

    Hi Everyone, Happy Friday!

    I agree with all of you BB is done, very boring, I tried just don’t care at this point.

    I need to check out the previous blog, I have a lot of catching up to do.

    BGM was fabulous can’t wait for that blog.

    I’m sure you heard about fuck face Teresa “seriously considering doing DWTS”
    I’m going to puke!

    • Zoey says:

      T-Ho is starting to be in the category of Kellamity to me, I’m only watching to see what stupid thing she’ll say or do. I don’t watch DWTS, but if she were on, I’d probably watch to see her make a fool of herself. Damn, what does that say about me?

      I was in a bitchy mood, and in reading her twit on and on and on about whether she should be on DWTS, I tried to get a rise out of her. I twitted her that I heard Danielle was going to be on DWTS. She is the real dancer, right?

      I’m not a fan of Danielle, but once again it would kill the D haters! Hey, let’s all push for that!!! Let’s all write DWTS and request Danielle. Who cares if she makes money, she’ll only have MAYBE 15 of fame then be gone, and I like her daughters, so I’m ok if they get money.

  15. NMhousewife says:

    I don’t watch BB or PR, but I just wanted to throw a few things out. Great BGM last night…love it! I am constantly laughing out loud or getting emotional and it is rare that I do that at all.

    Previews for DC housewives are already showing the English lady being extremely rude to many, so guess who will be the villian?

    Watched a clip someone put a link up for extended WWHL with Andy with Danielle and Jeff Lewis and I really wish Jeff Lewis would host like a lot of you have mentioned already. He is really funny, entertaining, yet I think he would do a better job of asking those awkward questions to guests that Andy is too wimpy to ask. He was complimentary with Danielle but didn’t hesitate to bring up the fact that she has the daughters to think about when it comes to who she is hanging out with or bringing into her house, yet still remaining respectful to her as well so it was not awkward at all. I can’t wait for Flipping out obviously also.

    My best wishes, thoughts, and prayers go out to emt2 and her family.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      Thats a great idea, Jeff could certainly host a West Coast version of WWHL with the OC and BH housewives when they’re airing!

      Quick, someone send that idea to Cohen! 🙂 Love it!

  16. CuckooforCocoaPuffs says:


    Just wanted to say that I am thinking of you and your mom today.

  17. shamrockblonde says:

    I want Matt gone on BB – cannot stand him – I agree that he should be found out and dumped by the Brigade – Enzo is starting to grow on me – he’s pretty funny – Lane seems sweet – I have no idea about Kristen – something is very off there – Rachel and Brendan – I don’t care for them too much, especially Rachel, but they are entertaining – as for the rest – completely forgettable – thanks for the great recap, Lynne – after reading it and all of your comments, I feel almost as if we were all up in my room, eating ice cream and watching together – it’s a good feeling!

  18. TLM says:

    I enjoyed last night’s BGM, but glad that next week the show will be wrapping up. B seems to have saturated every form of media there is…I can hardly turn on the TV, my computer or the radio without hearing her, and it does make me wonder when she ever sleeps or is home. I was shocked she was on WWHL late the other night. I think she needs to pull back just a little. Remember how everyone wanted to kill Jennifer Lopez until she finally went away from the media and raised her kids? I know B still has products and books coming out that she needs to promote, but sheesh Bethenny…take a rest!!! I think she has actually increased her appearances since Bryn rather than cut back. I loves me some Bethenny, and if *I’m* getting a little fatigued, imagine the haters!!! LOL.

    It was touching to see Jason cry and his parents’ reaction to Bryn’s birth and naming. I loved seeing B getting new clothes, but my God, Robert Verdi was a bitch and a half. What the F did he light into Max for? And multiple times? What did Max do to him but say hello? I think Max fought back weakly because he didn’t want to get fired. But it’s looking like he gets fired anyway for getting a massage at B’s shower next week.

    I knew B must have really, REALLY loved those fuchsia patent Alexander McQueen pumps, because I saw her wear them on The View, Jimmy Fallon, and the RH Reunion shows in short succession, and she doesn’t normally repeat herself that often, or that obviously (it’s kinda hard to get fuchsia patent to blend in). The thing I couldn’t figure out is that the pair of shoes RV gave her looked like the soles were dirty and had been worn many times?? Is he getting used shoes from the runway shows or something?? I loved the dress he briefly showed that she wore on the Today Show, the white halter top and black skirt. Still dying to know who that was by. I never would have guessed it was a dress, and I took multiple screen shots of it!! It really did look like separates to me. Oh, and I do want to know what the “discount” is that B was asking about, and how much she gets taken off the retail price of these things.

    I thought Jason really messed things up with Max & Kristen Farrell by taking her aside and telling her Max was nervous to ask her out. He really did act like he was Max’s dad, and that’s just a buzzkill. Jason should have said nothing, and Max should have just made his small talk and called the store the next day, when he got some courage up, to ask Kristen out to lunch. Not saying this would have ignited a love affair, but at least he would have had a shot. When you ask a woman to lunch and her answer is, “Sure,” it’s not good. Kristen might as well have said, “Sure, I guess going out to lunch is better than eating a hoagie at my desk in the back of the store. And I don’t want to piss off Jason and Bethenny, since they’re good customers. Plus, a camera is on me now, and I don’t want to look like a bitch.” Funny how one word can convey all that, isn’t it?

    And now, for comic relief, a truly scary photo of Jill at the bottom of this page. http://www.people.com/people/archive/article/0,,20325739,00.html I find it frightening the same way clowns are sinister-looking when you stare at pictures of them.

    • kats2 says:

      Nice recap TLM!!!

      I want Bethenny to do at least another season. I love and admire her drive, it’s what makes her, Bethenny. She still has so many products coming out I don’t think she can cut back much at all. YMMV

      I shoes and clothes stuff you should tweet her, I bet she would tell you.

      Max =AWKWARD – in addition to looking like a midget next to Jason he has no game. Big talker and good intentions but no game.

      I love their little family and inner circle of friends (Julie, Shawn, Max, etc) – they all just seem to be salt of the earth kind of people. It’s nice to see.

      • TLM says:

        I actually used to plead and beg her to say what she was wearing on different occasions, and she never responded. I figured either she was repulsed by someone wanting to know about labels, or was contractually bound only to push people like Ginny H, or just didn’t have time. It looks like the time factor was probably the real answer. So I’m glad they’re doing the Show and Tell stuff now. Probably Julie posts all that stuff.

        I will say that Alex McCord will ALWAYS answer a question about what she or Simon is wearing. I suspect they just want to retweet that to the designers to get more free stuff!!!! But unfortunately most of the time I don’t care for what they wear. Bethenny was the only RH whose style I consistenly liked.

      • Quincy IL says:

        Max is very good looking even though he is short. Jason is gorgeous.

  19. LynnNChicago says:

    TLM – Great recap of BGM? Maybe I’ll just cut and paste it into my blog LOL j/k 🙂

    I wondered what Max’s fate was because during the season he has been tweeting during the show but never really mentions Bethenny which is quite a challenge since he’s talking about her show but he tweets mostly to and about Shawn the wedding planner. So do you all think he really gets fired? I know Bethenny did say something somewhere about a new assistant. She also said that Max was just an intern but that isn’t what I understood during the 1st episode when he was hired, did you all get that impression?

    Thanks again TLM, new blog about BGM? soon, and I promise not to copy LOL

    • TLM says:

      No problem re-posting Lynn, as long as you give me credit! 🙂

      One other thing I meant to add about Jason giving pickup advice to Max — would you take advice from a guy whose first words to Bethenny were, “Are you going to get that stick out of your ass?” I still marvel that, knowing her, she didn’t tell him to F off.

    • TLM says:

      No problem Lynn… if you re-post, just give me credit for it…that’s all I ask!

      One other comment I meant to make — if you were Max, would YOU take pickup advice from the guy whose first words to Bethenny were, “Are you going to get that stick out of your ass?” Knowing a little about Bethenny, I still don’t know how she didn’t tell him to F off. Have to say that was the most unlikely relationship ever to happen based on that remark.

  20. shamrockblonde says:

    check out this link – it is the official HOH blog – first one is Matt’s – very well written – *I still do not like him though* – the next one is Rachel – be warned – it is almost impossible to read, but good for a laugh just the same – enjoy –


    • boston02127 says:

      @shamrockblonde–Thx for the link. Reading Rachael’s blog is like reading something Kelly wrote. I can’t stand when she calls Brandon “her man”. They’ve know each other less than a month.

      • felony stupid says:

        @boston – me too! I hate the “my man” crap. Jeez…every eviction video she says something about that person having to go because they tried to get between her and her man. Ick.

  21. Kelly_Has_Big-Shoulders says:

    @TLM Re: The Shoes, I was under the impression that Bethenny and Max walked in with those shoes in a bag? I need to go back and re- watch it. My interpretation is (if that was the case,) that she borrowed them and was returning them but decided that she loved them to much and was willing to pay full price for them. Not sure.Like I said I have to go back and re-watch.

    • TLM says:

      Yes, they were unboxed, which further suggested they were used. If Verdi got them from a store, they should have been in a box. Who would transport $700+ shoes loose in a bag, anyway? That whole thing was odd to me.

  22. kats2 says:

    Hi Everyone, Happy Friday!

    BB =boring, don’t really care any more.

    BGM = FABULOUS the show is pure joy, puts a smile on my face. Can’t wait for the blog and will save all my comments for it.

    This article/interview makes me sick. And now this hag is talking about doing DWTS! So I guess criminals and bad behavior get rewarded. I think it’s time to start banning sponsors of any show that hires this garbage.


    “All I can do is rise above it, keep my head high and know that at the end of the day, I have my family, my health and I’m in God’s hands,” she wrote. “Nothing else matters — certainly not a lamp.”

    Teresa – “rise above it” you are in the gutter, up is the only direction you have left. It’s interesting when scum like you get into trouble you play the God card. You seemed to care a lot about lamps and many other material things when you were shoving your out of control spending in everyone’s face.

    “We worked so hard for so many years and it was heartbreaking to file [for bankruptcy], and not something we took lightly,” the reality star wrote.

    Teresa – the word “WORKED” is very interesting, yes you worked hard but it was not at earning all the things that made you have to file bankruptcy. You are a hard working criminal. You worked hard spending money you didn’t earn or have and worked a system to get out of it. In my book what you did and what you are doing now is no different then a person robbing a bank.

    You are a disgusting vile ugly pig.

    • Laura aka Just done says:

      @Kats LOL, tell me how you really feel about Teresa! Plan is still on for the 22nd!

      • kats2 says:

        Laura – The 22nd will be here before we know it! I’m so happy you’re going, I just can’t wait to hear about every detail. We need to schedule a time we all meet back here to get the scoop from you.

        I know I’m bad but Teresa really just strikes a nerve with me, I think she is an awful person and I really don’t see any good qualities or characteristics.

        • Laura aka Just done says:

          kats – I agree with you 100% about T. That is why I’m so excited to go. She and that putz of a husband of her’s have only worked “the system.” Nothing more.

          As for the auction, we’ve already planned on getting there very early in the a.m., planning on driving by the night before to see what it looks like. I’ll keep everyone posted, I promise!

        • BamaBelle says:

          I don’t see any good qualities in Teresa Guidice, either. Not one. What she wrote in her blog was just trying to calm the storm around her. I don’t believe for one miunte she has worked hard at anything. The reason I feel this way is because of how she behaves on TV. Spending all that money and bugging Joe for lavish gifts even though they filed for bankruptcy. She doesn’t care what it’s going to do to all those people she owes so much to, like a Fertility Clinic? Why would she owe a Fertility Clinic 12,000 dollars, why?

          The way she talks to “us-the viewers” really bugs me. She acts like she’s trying to convince us what she says is true, or she doesn’t give a crap what we think. Like that bullshit story about how Danielle started the fight at the Fashion Show and how she LIED to Joe when telling her side of the story. I can’t stand her because she thinks she’s too good to help her huband with the Pizzeria and Laundromat, and, she thinks living in remodeled apartments are beneathe her. That means she must think their tenants are “scum”, but I bet they’re NOT 11 million in the hole.

          I understand times are tough, but what I don’t understand is why she is still spending like they are millionaires. I don’t delight in other peoples hard times or I wouldn’t kick anybody while they were down, but Teresa just thinks she’s too good to follow the rules.

          I hope she has to sale that mansion that they couldn’t afford in the first place, and I hope she has to live in somebody else’s nasty-used home. I don’t think she’s nice and I don’t believe any of that CRAP in her blog!

          Her obsession with Danielle is sickening and her table-flipping/fight starting attitude is digusting. Putting high heels on a 9 month baby is appalling and foolish! The difference in Bethenny and Teresa while giving birth is Class ~vs~ Trash!

          • TLM says:

            Teresa reminds me that nightmare on Bridezilla, Karen-something from Long Island, NY. The girl who would yell at people on the street that they were “9 dollar an hour people,” and kept bragging about her “classy” wedding when it was the cheesiest thing ever, and her parents looked like they didn’t have $10 to their name. Their house looked very low-rent. She tore up an additional bridal bouquet that was in perfect shape, just to exercise her rage, pretty much scaring the hell out of her bridesmaids. Teresa seems to be just as delusional in terms of what she has being tasteful, and just as “classy” as the rude, spoiled Karen.

      kats2–Well said.

    Wouldn’t it be funny if T and D were both on DWTS.

    • They should really do “DTWS Real Housewives Addition”, and put on all the ppl who hate each other. Vicky, Alexis, Beth, Jill, Teresa, D
      We already know B will win bc she will always get the most votes
      D will prob be a close second, I mean she was a “dancer” in her past
      I could only hope that T will dance as badly as Kate Gosselin, and that her head will explode when her and D are in the bottom two and viewer votes save D not her
      Jill will be out first because everyone hates her – and we all saw how graceful she was on the ice
      Vicky, who I imagine is equally as graceful will be out second only because everyone hates Jill more
      Alexis will be out 3rd because her giant duck lips obstruct her vision and she will end up tripping over her partner
      The only reason T will last till the final 3 is because people will love watching her make a fool out of herself week after week

      • Squirrels says:

        “The only reason T will last till the final 3 is because people will love watching her make a fool out of herself week after week”

        Which is why Kate lasted as long as she did. Putz rises over klutz for only so long though.

    Rob Shuter makes me want to puke. He loves Jill and Teresa but he hates Bethenny. This is his latest tweet:

    NaughtyNiceRob The cute @Teresa_Giudice has just become the best selling Real Housewife author Sold more books than any other housewife including @bethenny
    4 minutes ago via Twitterrific

    • 2Stupid says:

      I don’t understand how they can prove that. I thought there is no real “true” tracker of book sales. I mean how do you know at what point she has outsold Bethenny. I thought even publishers hold actual book sales close to the vest. I hope said proceeds from book sales are forced to go to creditors when her bankruptcy gets discharged due to fraud.

      • Lovebeth says:

        I think by Bob saying that, creditors are calling the trustee that she obviously has money.

      • icantstandthetoxicity says:

        Someone tweeted this to Rob Shuter:

        @NaughtyNiceRob Can you tell me where I can find the statistics to verify that Teresa had sold more books than Bethenny.

        Rob’s response:

        @(name deleted) to verify you have to investigate yourself. If you look at same offical book sale i got my info from you will get same answer as me

      • Need a Hobby says:

        That’s my understanding as well: publishers keep those stats closely guarded. Which makes such comparatives and claims difficult to factually substantiate and support. Doubt that “Rob” really knows anything about it.

        This Rob person, what is he… a gossip guy? Apparently he has a name in some circles due to his “celeb” fluffing and butt sniffing & is probably only passing on what he’s heard from T herself….

        It’s pure genius for T to keep bragging about her financial success & have the usual sycophants spread it about: if the G’s are denied bankruptcy protection….that means their assets are up for grabs.

        And T: bankruptcy is not a “rumor” when the court proceedings and records are facts and a matter of public record. Similarly, the auction also is not a “rumor:” it’s been scheduled as part of the bankruptcy proceeding and also is a fact. That T’s trying to stop the auction is irrelevant: actual documented facts and scheduled events are not “rumors.”

        On the other hand, T’s Fredo-like assertions regarding her intelligence are in fact rumors and are based on alleged facts not clearly in evidence.

        • Squirrels says:

          LMAO! I was immediately whacked with

          “It ain’t the way I wanted it! I can handle things! I’m smaaat! Not like everybody says… like dumb… I’m smaaat and I want respect!”

          Perfect comparison Hobby.

          • Need a Hobby says:

            Yeah, for weeks now when ever Teresa cockily talked about herself (and her intellect), I kept flashing back to “I’m smaaat!”

            Teresa’s the Fredo of RHONJ.

      • icantstandthetoxicity says:

        Rob Shuter better get a pair of eyeglasses if he thinks that Teresa is cute. He should also work on getting some legitimate sources so his “gossip” is a little more accurate.

    • TLM says:

      Are you sure that “Rob Shuter” isn’t really Jill’s nephew? The Wexlers’ son?

      • icantstandthetoxicity says:

        Rob Shuter is a columnist for Popeater.com. He used to be a friend/acquaintance of Bethenny’s. A couple of months ago, he complained on Twitter that Bethenny didn’t return his phone calls and he stated that one of her assistants called him back. He also claimed that Bethenny dropped some of her friends when she became a millionaire. He likes to take digs at Bethenny so I have a hard time believing some of his information because he is biased. I should also mention that he is a friend of Jill’s and he loves Teresa.

    I posted this on the last blog but it’s funny so I’m posting it again. Maybe it just hit me as really funny. Kelly is tweeting about the resturant in NY called Warren 77.

    Kelly’s tweet:
    Tribeca haunts: warren 77, tribeca tavern, walters
    ( you can color with crayons at the table)

    • kats2 says:

      Sure Kelly. Warren is actually a 77 year old man who lives outside a Tavern in Tribeca in an old refrigerator box. Walter is an artist who felt bad for Warren and once stopped and talked to him and drew a picture on his old refrigerator box. Kelly happened to be running in the street and saw this. Poor Warren is still trying to figure out why this woman keeps coming by and drawing on his home.

      Good, now I know which place to avoid if I go to Tribeca. I wonder if she runs around there asking waiters where her jelly beans are.

    Hi Amber, I have thought of doing pop art, but I think I am going to finish up the masterpiece paintings with the New York housewives and if I like the D.C. ladies (or dislike, lol), I may do them as Presidential or First Lady portraits. Why do you have a suggestion?

    I have used Photoshop for work in the past, but can’t talk about that due to a confidentiality agreement. Currently I work for myself and rarely have a need for Photoshop. I recently restored photos for my neighbor after their home was destroyed by fire. That took a very long time but it felt good that I was able to help them get some of their memories back.

    Now I do this stuff for fun. I used to join Photoshop contests (I have won a few) but I like learning and not feeling pressured to please anyone but myself and if anyone else is amused by my stuff that’s good too 🙂

        Pithy statements that go with the art.

        • MickeyMouth says:

          I like that idea. I have been trying to choose the painting to match the housewife. Some are harder than others. I have been waiting for D.C. to start to get a better feel of their personalities so I can best choose their portrait. Any help is appreciated. I have other ideas too, but I may not have the time to complete (hubby already thinks I crazy).

    • Squirrels says:

      Restoration is quite an art Mickey. Painstakingly so.

        A janitor dropped a Jesus on a Crucifix in my mom’s Catholic Church. She brought it to me with tears in her eye on Christmas Eve morning. I asked my friend who repairs the plaster on old frames at her frame shop for her recipe of plaster. Would you believe that Jesus was repaired, repainted, cleaned and back up on the wall for Christmas Eve ceremonies? My mom and her priest called it a miracle, but it was actually fun reconnecting hands, feet and painting the dripping blood. I did parts of the cross with gold foil too. Jesus was glowing for the mass. LOL

    • moriasheehan says:

      maybe juicy is freezing sperm so he can get the vasectomy t wants.

      Because her eggs refused to cooperate unless they got paid upfront?

        Or they were going to try to sell his whiz to help pay some bills. I bet they don’t have all their organs and actually have 6 kids but sold two of them.

      Juicy didn’t want to have sex with her.

        Maybe Teresa can’t find it under his beach ball stomach.

        • vilzvet says:

          In all seriousness, it was most likely because they were paying the clinic to help “get” them a boy. There are huge fees for that, something they do with the sperm. Anyhow, looks like they’re not paying that bill for more than one reason!

          • Squirrels says:

            Personally, I find that disturbing. Who knows what could happen when you mess with chromosomes?

            • Quincy IL says:

              I have heard of going to Fertility Clinic’s trying to get a specific sex. OMG-I didn’t think about that. Well, too bad if it didn’t work-they STILL owe the money.

              LOL-I like the answer “because her eggs refused to cooperate without getting paid upfront… Hahahahahaha!

  39. Wow, I finally caught up…. I must confess, even though Andrew was stupid and a little mean spirited, I liked his speech in terms of the impact it could have on the stupid Brigade. Out of the Brigade, the only one playing it smart at the moment is Enzo. I hate Matt, I don’t want to see his wife— what he did was wrong! And…..for his wife to say that it was wrong and still support it by alluding to her fantasy illness in the letter….yuck! I would be so disappointed if I were just married and my husband did something like that.

    I love how when people do these unethical things they claim they’re just ‘playing the game hard’. To me it just shows great insecurity which goes along with Matt loudly proclaiming that he is a genius. You can manipulate, be devious and play the game without telling such a terrible lie. I would love to see Rachel backdoor him, but she is probably too dumb.

    I’m liking the cast of PR. I think they made the right elimination. If I were asked who was the one person that I wasn’t interested in seeing create another outfit it would have been McKell. Knew Ivy was going to be in trouble the minute she said it was ‘The Ivy Show’.

    Danielle’s sex tape is actually selling
    BEVERLY HILLS, Calif.—The scandalous sex tape from one of the stars of The Real Housewives of New Jersey is now out and available for purchase on DVD from LFP Video.
    Danielle Staub RAW, the 47-year-old’s sex tape, is 75 minutes long and filled with hardcore sex.
    “Danielle Staub RAW [is out] and it’s already flying off the shelves,” LFP Video Vice President of Sales David Diamond said. “I’m getting re-orders already. This is going to be huge.
    “Here is a sex tape being released right when a celebrity is at the top of her game,” he continued. “She’s on TV every week, she’s being interviewed by shows like The Today Show and The Joy Behar Show on CNN. Hell, she’s even recording albums that actually sound pretty good.”
    Scott Esposito’s Tru Filth—owners of the tape—decided to enter into a partnership with Hustler to handle the DVD distribution along with the broadcast rights for Hustler TV.
    The Real Housewives of New Jersey currently airs on Bravo.

    • MAMAZ says:

      Don’t put the sauce on until it’s almost finished cooking. It will burn. Baste the chicken with olive oil or whatever mixture you marinated the chicken with. Don’t use the liquid you marinated in, make extra. Towards the end of cooking baste with your BBQ sauce. 🙂

    • kats2 says:

      I heard someone once say to mix a little honey in the sauce and it gives if a texture that is nice and really sticks, but be careful not to add too much or it will be too sweet. I never tried it but That’s all I got for you, sounds good!!!!!

    • Squirrels says:

      I believe Beth leans toward a more liberal bent. Eliz hates anyone who isn’t kissing the ass of Sarah Palin, or Fox in general. She actually tried to interject a criticism disguised as a question when Obama was on The View, but was shut down by one of her co-hosts.

    I’d like to know just how far Kelly runs in these marathons. I can see her going three blocks or so and then disappearing and then showing up three blocks before the finish line. Maybe someone in Chicago can keep an eye out for her

    • Squirrels says:

      That actually happened at the Boston Marathon in 1980. Apparently, Rosie Ruiz decided the “T” was a better option and actually running the 26mi 365ft. She was later stripped of her win. No wonder we never saw her at Heartbreak Hill.

    A rather funny link I found in my bookmarks. It is a pre-RHONJ blog article with numerous comments. Most are in the “I know these women and they are ….” or “These women are my family and ….” but one is a real GEM.


    You will find this lengthy comment about halfway down the page. It is from a 17 yo girl named ASHLEY who says her mom is on the show! She promises it will be the last thing she has to say on the show. Little did we know…..

    • boston02127 says:

      @deena–She wrote “none of the housewives were ever hookers”. Little did she know she’d be screaming to anyone who would listen about Danielle.

      Another post—-
      one of the pathetic losers that are on this show, is a very close relative of mine. Don’t understand how that show chose her to be on tv. If anyone knows who I might be talking about, what an idiot, clueless mother and a housewive that has no idea what her husband does and who. She definitely needs a reality check.

      • Squirrels says:

        The “another post” … can’t be Teresa because she’s not a relative. Could it be Ashley actually talking about her own mom? If so, dang, that’s ballsy.

      Wow, that was a GREAT find, well worth the long read. It sounded like Caroline in quite a few posts especially this:
      “I’m not writing garbage…and this is how my very YOUNG niece had it set up” (in regards to be anonymous. Two more posts sounded like it could have been Dina admitting she was on the show…or at least it sounded like them, especially the way Caroline talks. Even a few posts from employees of their hall saying nice thing (which really makes me think Caroline was posting as I said. Lots of telling gossip such as mentioning they are “rich on credit” (we know that’s true), two are former strippers (who’s the 2nd one?) info on husbands …well worth the read.

        When the NJ show first came out, I saw a lot of posts on NewJersey.com from people claiming to be in the know. There were comments that later turned out to be true.

        I’m surprised that people don’t come out of the woodwork to spill on Jill. There have been a stain on a dress that Ally borrowed and a couple of complaints that Jill wanted free clothes/discounted clothes in the Hamptons, but no real dirt.

    • dumberries says:

      Wow, I read all the comments from 2 years ago. Most of them seem pretty prophetic – the show turned out to be a lot like what the Franklin Lake locals predicted from this group of “woman”. Seems like Danielle isn’t the only one who doesn’t know the plural form – almost all the posters in the site use “woman” when it should be “women”. Lots of comments about the cast members: maxed out credit cards, pretenders, looking for houses they can’t afford.. Interesting read – thanks for the link deena!

    • Quincy IL says:

      Someone thought it was Caroline writing to the blog. I think it could be one the the Laurita sisters now that we have met them. It can’t be Teresa or someone from her family because they are illiterate. It sounds like Caroline and those sisters sounded more like Caroline than Dina. It can’t be Ashley, she threw away that Catholic School education.

      • Sha2000 says:

        I thought is was Caroline (in several posts) because she speaks in a very specific way & there were fifty posts following claiming to be employees from her business asserting the same claims who great the family is. Hey, maybe they are good people & like Dina. I really think all four were on; C, D, J & A. If they are so busy on Twitter I’m sure that blog attracted them. Funny stuff, a long read but interesting.

    • deena says:

      BTW, I didn’t find this. I found the link to this blog here:

    • BamaBelle says:

      Deena, that was very interesting!

      Wow, most of the comments from 2 years ago turned out to be true. You know they were talking about Teresa when they claimed she wasn’t rich-just had high credit cards limits. Plus, they made references to Teresa spending on her kids, and not knowing what her husband was up to. Now I’m beginning to think that Joe does have a “mistress” on the side. Somebody had a lot of information and knew what they were talking about!

      I wonder who the second hooker is? Probably Dina, or maybe Jacqueline. She did get arrested when she was younger for fighting. Like mother-like daughter, huh? Wait… it’s got to be TERESA, yeah, I can believe that Teresa was once a hooker, LOL!

        Well I can say that these comments are from nj. To know a person so well and see her on this show, it so proves what she wishes she was. Born and raised in Paterson and and then thinking that she has the wonderful life that these women so called have on this show. This is all just a show because that woman has nothing just a bunch of credit cards with a high balance!!!!!

      ok, now I’m hungry. Boston, next time, try maple syrup. Can’t be the fake stuff though. It’s awesome on steaks. Some like to add dijon mustard as well.

    • Squirrels says:

      I took a page out of Bethenny’s cookbook the other night and rummaged through the fridge. Mixed honey bbq sauce with salsa and made sloppy joes. Big hit, but I was sweating it during the experimental stage. Whew.

      • boston02127 says:

        @Squirrels–That sounds good. I like maple syrup on a few things including vanilla ice cream & ham. The sloppy joe sounds good too. Thanks.

    • moriasheehan says:

      take 2 cups brown sugar, 1/2 cup malt liquor, 1/8 stick of butter, (1 tsp mustard optional) cook to soft ball stage (makes a soft ball if dropped in cool water) when chicken is 5 minutes from resting time, lightly grind a bit of sea salt on the chicken, then spoon sugar mix onto chicken, leave on grill 5 minutes, remove, spoon additional sugar mix and let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
      another favorite, take ham slice and grill, make sugar mix but cook till it is hardening on your spoon as you stir. after ham cools, cut in 1″ squares, pour mix over it. if you get the sugar cooked enough, it’s like a candy apple coating on the ham, stick a toothpick in it and serve as finger food with baked beans, or other sport party foods. guys love them with a beer and pretzel with mustard.

      • Earring Girl says:

        You are too funny!! This is just IMHO- I always thought her relationship with Lexi in season one was strange, when Lexi was going out of the country to visit her father (I forgot where) the comments she kept making were strange to me, everything was very over the top as if she was trying to scare her into not going. She seemed very dependent on Lexi like she did not have a husband. Lexi seemed a little sly and more mature than Dina thought she was. Again just MHO.

    • deena says:

      There were so many anonymous writers it is hard to follow the comments and who they were slinging the mud at. However, I don’t think it was an Ashley comment since she doesn’t seem to have a filter and will sign her name to anything. I thought the comment was referring to Teresa.

  63. emt2 says:

    Thank you all for your wonderful words of support.

    She is stabilized and now she is in the Progressive Care Unit that is just below ICU. She was able to talk to us today, which is great. And I was able to give her a proper shower and paint her nails. lol

    She will be in the hospital, in the Rehabilition Unit for a few weeks because she has a lot of problems walking and maintaining her balance and she is still pretty weak. She had a minor stroke, so we are lucky in that sense. But a stroke is still a stroke and there isn’t anything nice about that! Combine that with gout, diabetes, glaucoma and you can just imagine how difficult things are for her.

    I just got home from the hospital and am now cooking up meals for her for the weekend. She hates hospital food, so it’s the least I can do. I am also cooking for my dad because he is lost without her.

    We are hanging in and just praying and doing our best and doing what the doctors, nurses and what md.com suggest.

    I really appreciate all of you for your wonderful prayers and words of comfort. Really. Thank you so much. I will never forget. I love this community and no matter what people may say about this blog (ahem, Jill Zarin and her cronies), it’s such a wonderful source of community and you guys are really insightful, caring and supportive. Thanks again.

      Sorry to hear about your mom, emt2!

      Prayers for a speedy recovery! I’m glad she has a good daughter to care for her. Those meals sound very nice, maybe you should give them to your dad because my dad was hospitalized many times for complication of diabetes and had a minor stroke. They made him stay on a very strict diet in the hospital. He would beg us to bring him food, but the doctor said we wouldn’t be doing him any favors at all. It’s hard to watch a parent suffer. When he came home-we always gave in and let him off his diet for a while-but me and my sisters feel guilty for doing it. He died at 75 years old several years ago. My mother died of cervical cancer at 46 years old in the early 80’s! All of you who have your parents living… tell them you LOVE them every single day!

    • Earring Girl says:

      I saw that – and maybe it will put to rest the nasty rumor that he is living off of Bethenny/doesn’t have job/with her for her money and fame. Also I read somewhere I don’t know if it was here or another blog comment that Bethenny was in the Hamptons last weekend without Bryn and Jason. Here is her tweet from last Saturday –

      G’night tweeps.crazy AM,then drove to hamptons then bryn tossed her cookies on me.going to sleep until the next feeding.a lil tired. Xo

      • Lovebeth says:

        These rumors are probably stated by haters who cannot accept the fact that she finally got everything she wanted.

        I also think she is going to be overly protective of Bryn and will keep her out of the public eye as much as she can. It is fine seeing Bryn on BGM but I really do not want to see her everywhere.

      • icantstandthetoxicity says:

        Bethenny, Jason and Bryn have been spending their weekends in the Hamptons this summer. People must have speculated that Jason and Bryn weren’t with Bethenny because she went to the polo event by herself. I think that polo event was a promotional appearance.

        The people who are started these rumors are probably the same people who claimed that Jason moved out.

    • Need a Hobby says:

      That site doesn’t really provide the methodology used to arrive at their numbers and has a disclaimer that says basically that they don’t vouch for the accuracy of the numbers they provide.

      Which basically undercuts the premise of the site and the numbers they provide.

  65. Zoey says:

    A question just popped into my mind and someone here must know the answer. Any idea if Bethenny and Jason had a pre nup?

  66. Lovebeth says:

    I hope they did. Bethenny is a smart woman and judging from her past and how she has been abandoned by loved ones, I am sure she did just to protect herself. I am sure she would pick happiness with Jason over money. I wish them a long lasting marriage.

    I am not rich and would sign a pre nup because sometimes people marry for the wrong reasons,

      • Yeah-I saw that too. I think Jaq. is trying to show the proof that that guy is friendly with Danielle. It is creepy. How did she get a pic. of that message????

        • deena says:

          It is a screenshot of what Jackie and Ashley are looking at on their phone at the time (her twitter feed in this case). My daughter showed me how to do it with my iPhone several months ago and I promptly forgot!

          I am probably not going to say this in the way I usually do when talking to other parents, so forgive me since I am working without my notes.

          This guy is a nutcase from the looks of his previous tweets…not just the tweets to Ashley and Danielle. I don’t think he was being urged by anyone to tweet that mess. He was tweeting bizarre comments all day long, and seemed to be doing it on his own, possibly fueled by some Hennessy at the beach. He had a quite of collection of Tweet pics of himself half naked, too…. LOL

          Jac and Ashley should have Drop/Blocked/Muted him, then never let another one through. They should have never retweeted a thing he typed. They feel into the trap because he has the “D” name in one or two tweets. Never would his tweet be passed back and forth for him to gloat over. The tweet would have died. He would be an never mentioned again. PERIOD.

          However, it goes without saying that everyone should consider how much they share on social media sites because of creeps like this. He is probably a harmless drunk, but a persistent drunk. But you never know when the “DANGEROUS NUT” is reading your Tweets, FourSquare, Facebook, and using it to check out your hangouts. Don’t ever tell your location, phone number, for stranger meetups. Be careful what you say, be careful what you share. DON’T BE A VICTIM. Don’t over-share your personal information to well-meaning strangers. Block and mute people that “give you a bad feeling.”

          OK….lecture over! Back to mom mode!!! I do love my own Ashley even when she has tested me, too!

    Anyhoo, I figured that its about time that I change my avatar anyhow, and thought I’d post the “Wharol~izer” thing generator here. You can use any image that you want for this thing, even your own photos. Its really good for people who’s 15 minutes are UP!

    There are different ones online I think, but this one is easy-I think my camera has a “warhol” button too?

  69. So I’ve been doing a little research on Twitter tonight. What I found is way to long to post here, so I made a blog post about it. http://njhousewives.blogspot.com/
    Its (mostly) about that suspicious Tweet sent out earlier that claimed that TERESA outsold Bethenny in book sales. And another Teresa vs, Bethenny copycat. (think Skinny Girl Margaritas). The person who originally Tweeted it made up THREE different answers because he was getting a lot of questions about where did he get his info. from.

    I would feel bad for people forced into bankruptcy, those who lost everything due to the economy hitting the toilet. I do not feel bad for Teresa and Joe.

    If you have to file for bankruptcy, what do you think you’d do? Would you continue to spend as though you’re wealthy or would you downsize? Would you hire a limo and send a bunch of 9 year olds to a spa for the day? Would you hire a party planner, empty your house, rent new furniture, dancers and entertainers for a housewarming? Would you drop 2,000.00 in cash for clothing for a 9 year old? Would you pay for acting lessons, etc? and would you spend money for a ginormous yellow diamond ring for your tenth anniversary? NO… you would not. and you know why? Because you are honest, ethical and law abiding.

    Teresa’s recent blog at Bravo makes me furious! She’s now trying to claim that she and Joe are philanthropic and that’s what led to their bankruptcy. Oh, they tried to provide low income folks with a home? Tell me, Teresa, how charitable it is that you have taken food out of the mouths of the children of contractors that you and Joe did not pay! Tell me that.
