I Hate Jill Zarin Wednesday Update August 4, 2010
A little bit of news, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has been filming and an inside source tells me that they did a portion of the filming at the Merv Griffin Estate, the same one that Gretchen’s family vacationed at during last season of The Real Housewives Of Orange County.
Bravo’s confidentiality agreement is really good, no one working on the shows will say much of anything but I was able to find out that some of the crew, while working on the show, stayed at the Griffin compound.
Please accept my apology in advance while I indulge, for the first time, my personal views on trolls and haters:
It is amazing to me the number of people who truly have nothing better to do than to try to knock other people. I’m fairly new at this, less than a year blogging but there have been way more great, interesting and wonderful people than hateful people that I have come into contact with and that is why I continue to do it. People who see things differently from me or don’t agree with my viewpoint can do so without insulting and being mean. If you don’t agree, tell me why, make an intelligent argument to try to convince me, otherwise, don’t read my blog. It is pretty simple. There are plenty of blogs out there that I do not agree with, I just move on. There are tweets out there that I don’t agree with, people who worship reality cast members that I do not like, I don’t attack them. I let them have their opinion, why do so many people feel like they can tweet me and tell me to stop saying what I want to say? Do these people really believe that tweeting me telling me to stop tweeting is going to work? Seriously? Think about that for a minute.
I really enjoy taking an hour or two out of my day to write a blog about whatever happens to be going on any given day in the reality world. It honestly doesn’t take that long, I have won awards back in school for my typewriting speed and since I never stopped typing, my speed has only increased. The thing that takes the longest is cutting and pasting some of the tweets and links that I sometimes will add to my blog. Even that doesn’t take that long.
For the haters that care so much and keep asking, yes, I do have a job or I probably wouldn’t be able to afford the high speed internet access in my home (yes I own it and its not “under” foreclosure) and I wouldn’t be able to afford the laptop that I type on every day or the PC on my desk in my office. I wouldn’t have been able to afford to attend all of the Blackhawk games all season or the recent trip to Canada to see my family and the Stanley Cup! (or to Hawaii in January or to Boston last summer, etc)
The same haters want to know so I’ll tell you, yes, I have a family a loving, supportive husband who is my rock and children that are none of your business but who thrive under my care! (not one Ashley in the bunch!) Thank you all for your concern. I know it seems as though I spend all of my time on this blog, I actually oftentimes feel guilty that I don’t spend enough time on the blog reading comments because I feel if you all take the time to comment, the least I can do is read them all, I will be honest, I don’t always have the time to read every single one. I do my best!
Yes, I tweet, I do not delete my tweets, they are what they are…”It’s WHAT happened” as Bethenny would say. Twitter isn’t a blog that you can go back later and change before it gets officially posted, it is what you are thinking or want to say at the moment. You can always apologize or explain your tweets if you like but if you choose to tweet, you should own the content. Just my opinion. I enjoy the fast paced interaction on Twitter.
Finally, I know that these people are on a reality show, I know that I’m not “friends” with any of them, I know that they couldn’t care less about me, I don’t pretend to “know” any of them and I know that we only see a snippet of their lives. Anyone feeling the need to remind me of any of these facts, really, not necessary!
So, again, I appreciate that all of the haters are so concerned about my life, no need really because I couldn’t be happier! The limited time I am able to spend on line may seem like a lot but really comes out to average just a few hours a day, sometimes I’m not on line at all, all day and other days I may be on for several hours. It all depends on my schedule but thanks for caring enough to ask.
OMG enough about me, sorry all!
The excuse that we recently got from Dina is that she deletes tweets because she doesn’t want certain people to get attention. Guess what? If you don’t want them getting attention, don’t give it to them. Keep your twitter silent. I have ignored countless tweets that were criticizing me for that very same reason, someone with 2 followers tweets something nasty to me just to get more followers. If I respond, people look to see who I’m responding to and may follow. My choice is to not respond, therefore nothing to delete later on.
Dina Manzo just doesn’t like to let things go…she continues to post tweets about me long after I’ve forgotten all about her nonsense, remember this is the Zen, peaceful Dina Manzo who wants nothing negative on her twitter timeline (unless it is negative about me apparently) :
DinaManzo: side note: Blocking anyone who retweets Lynn or any other tweethole to me. I DON’T want that crap on my twitter. They’re all disturbed
DinaManzo: Again, I’m zen for the most part but DO set my boundaries & will not be harassed either & guess what it’s my twitter, I could do what I want
DinaManzo: XXXXXXX @dinamanzo…Ur right! Lynn Hudson is a busted up, old, fat HOO-HA! Alot of peeps feel as you do. She’s an obsessive Stalker! Be Careful.
Apparently Dina and her family enjoyed a night out at the John Mayer concert, here are her Tweets to ensure that everyone knows where she is….
DinaManzo: @johncmayer it would be great if u gave Lexi a shout out. Center row about 10seats bk pls RT
DinaManzo: Let’s RT that to death!!!
DinaManzo: Look at my tweet to @johncmayer Lexi would die!!!!
DinaManzo: Thank u all for the RT to @johncmayer I guess it would have helped if I did it BEFORE he went on stage. He was too busy singing to check twr
Yes Dina, that would have helped, I’m sure if John Mayer saw your lousy stinkin tweet BEFORE he went on stage, he would have given your daughter a shout out, maybe you’re delusional about your “status” as a celebrity Dina but John Mayer is NEVER going to acknowledge that you exist because he doesn’t know you exist, you big headed, self-important , egotistical bitch!
*John Mayer’s 3.5 million followers probably don’t ever ask him for a shout out, Dina’s tweet was most likely never seen by Mr. Mayer.
A recent tweet:
Jill Zarin: Taste everything eat nothing. Advice from old friend.
The above quote was from Jill Zarin which is a direct quote from Bethenny’s book Naturally Thin. Just curious as to why Jill would give out Bethenny’s advice when she has her own wonderful advice of pouring your drink on your food?
Patti Stanger: Track record isn’t so good for Bachelors/Bachelorettes lasting…..I wouldn’t buy a dress just yet…
What a genius that Patti Stanger is! Yuck!
If you’re not on Twitter, I hope that some of my posts help to see what others are posting on Twitter, if anyone is interested in joining but needs some tips or pointers, I’m always happy to help. Until then, I hope you’ll continue to enjoy the tweets I post for you. There are so many creative and hysterical people out there tweeting that I find myself laughing at them all the time. (not to mention the hysterical comments here on my blog, if you haven’t read any, you’re missing out on the funny!)
A few samples:
Feeling1979 @teresa_giudice I CANNOT wait for 2nd book. I want 2 know secrets on 10k from “family” per month, faux furniture & how 2 get $home on 80k yr
Feeling1979 sidenote: I’m blocking anyone that bleaches their tweethole. Looking at you @dinamanzo
Feeling1979 Those damn unicorns better stop crapping in my living room or I’ll shove a rainbow up their…oh look a butterfly
Our always favorite, Ginger Zarin:
@Intensity38 u should feel that heat when crammed inside of a leather bag. U don’t know NY heat til someone makes u a trinket.
Gotta get ready for Vegas. Spray glitter and swarovski collar in the bag…
Hearing “what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” I am planning a leap out of the bag again so I can stay there forever. Feet don’t fail me now!
Twitter aside, we have some genius and hysterical posts right here along with many who have their own blogs and web sites, here are a few that you really need to take a look at:
I really love Bethenny’s web site and she also sends out a newsletter about every month or so if you sign up for it on her web site, easy to remember, you only need to know how to spell her name, right Kelly?:
Here’s a really good recap of Rachel Zoe Project (and if you look around a little you’ll find a RHONJ recap as well)
The Real Housewives of DC appeared on The View today, watch the full episode here:
You can see for a moment where Whoopi comes out from backstage as she isn’t part of the crew interviewing the housewives and touches Michaele Salahi somehow but you can’t really tell what the hell Whoopi was doing and she’s gone before you know it. At the very end there isn’t time to properly close the show and for anyone to say, “take some time to enjoy the view”, all we hear is Whoopi saying that she’s an interesting woman and the show is over. I don’t know what that was all about but I am sure we haven’t heard the last of it.
Call me crazy but if The View would take more time to interview their guests and less time indulging in their own opinions about everything under the sun, the show would actually be more interesting. I really don’t understand why they casually and lazily yap throughout ¾ of the show and then rush through an interview with the guests. In the case of the Real Housewives of DC, they not only had an important interview with the woman accused of crashing the White House but four other woman, why not allow for more time to interview these ladies? The View makes me crazy, this is why I don’t watch that show unless it is a guest or guest host I absolutely have to see!
The crazy person, TweetMaxine on twitter continues to spew garbage about the housewives and other Bravo celebrities. If anyone reading this still follows, I beg you to please unfollow the crazy person! I used to follow as well, it didn’t take me long to realize that none of the information was accurate but it was sort of funny. It quickly became less and less funny as the tweets became more and more vicious and cruel.
Clearly the statements of the birth of Bethenny’s baby and the appearance of Jill on Bethenny’s show were lies proving that this person is NOT a Bravo insider as they claim to be. The tweets are not just lies, they are mean spirited and this person should not be rewarded with followers. There is a very good reason TweetMaxine protects the tweets, because the tweets are truly libelous and slanderous. Additionally, I’ve been told that home addresses of some of the housewives have been posted by TweetMaxine. The madness will only stop when people stop following. I was also told that this crazy person tweeted that both Jill Zarin and Dina Manzo have taken out restraining orders against me because I threatened them. This is obviously ridiculous and I’m not concerned that people will believe this nonsense but the lies are getting out of control.
It is not typical for me to ask something like this but I deplore anyone who is following TweetMaxine to please unfollow. Just a humble request. Thank you.
If you’re looking for people to follow that have REAL excellent information and some fascinating links to articles and great blogs, I can give you a list of some of the best Tweeters for Housewife lovers!
Thank you to all of you who are offering your comps for an Atlantic City trip, I wish I was invited to the reunion, just to be a fly on the wall would be amazing but to get to ask questions to the Housewives, I certainly wouldn’t hold back! I haven’t been to Atlantic City so I’d love to take you all up on that! Unfortunately no invitation was forthcoming, maybe next season? LOL
Upcoming on Bravo is the Season Finale of Bethenny Getting Married? tomorrow night following the series premier of The Real Housewives of DC at 9pm-8pm Central time.
Rumor has it that the Real Housewives of Atlanta will begin airing in October, we also know that the OC ladies are back in front of the cameras. Still no word on when The Real Housewives of New York will begin taping again. Previous seasons began filming at the end of August, but Andy Cohen told fans to “sit tight until 2011” when he was asked about the cast of RHONY. More speculation:
Everyone’s favorite batshit crazy housewife Kelly Bensimon is now in Las Vegas just 2 days after returning home to NY from Chicago and running in a ½ Marathon. Does this woman ever stay home with her children? She is constantly flying around the country. A few of her tweets:
