I Hate Jill Zarin Flipping Out – Guest Blog August 11, 2010

I Hate Jill Zarin        Flipping Out – Guest Blog          August 11, 2010

Thank you to @NightLight95 for submitting this guest blog about last nights episode of Flipping Out!  Great job!  More from me after NightLight95’s blog…

I would first like to thank Lynn for permitting me to share my thoughts on Flipping Out, a show that I really enjoy and fell in love with immediately. When I first stumbled on to Lynn, during RHONY 3rd season, I found her blogs to be quite insightful and I felt like she hit the nail on the head with the cast.

“It’s a great day at Jeff Lewis’s office. This is NightLight95, how may I help you?” I wish! J

I thought it was quite clever the way Bravo tried to confuse the viewer (or at least me) with the first scene: Jeff and a baby. What? Where did this baby come from? I tried to think back and I completely forgot that Jett’s girlfriend was pregnant when season 3 ended.

I am not sure if Jeff appreciates the fact that his staff brings his life some semblance of balance and I think when he becomes a father that it will be the last piece to the puzzle. It took Jeff a long time to get this group together and they are certain qualities that he was looking for when hiring (especially in a small office) honesty, loyalty, strong work ethic and excellent organizational skills. This group seems to have the first three and need to work on being organized or at least to Jeff’s OCD’s level. Can anybody? But this is a caring and loving group which is why I enjoy Jeff’s neurotic antics. Not to mention I have a crush on him.

Once Trace is finished with school, I hope he stays on with Jeff and doesn’t feel burned out. Jeff said he doesn’t have much of a social life since he goes to school and work. Trace has some OCD qualities (don’t forget he can’t get out of bed until he wins a game of checkers) but so far not anywhere to Jeff’s level. Maybe the difference between Jeff and Trace is not the level of compulsiveness as much as Jeff’s difficulty in managing his angry outburst and that vicious tongue. I hope we see more of Trace this season and his short shorts!

What can I say about Sarah that doesn’t come off condescending because I think she’s adorable, sweet and very patient? When we first met Sarah she was bringing Jeff coffee and she spilled it all over the leather interior and exclaimed, “Oh Jeffy!?” and I fell in love. She doesn’t know her title (Executive Assistant and Executive Business Partner) but she knows it’s up there. What does being up there in mean if you work for Jeff Lewis? Well on occasion you clean up “booger” napkins on his properties and you are told you smell like trash. But to be fair Jeff smelled like trash as well.

How cute was Jett’s baby? (I apologize but I didn’t catch his name.) How smart is Jett you ask? Well he is smart enough to fix Jeff’s Evening Happy Hour drink, place skewered olives at an angle evenly on a tray.  It’s all about presentation! In case you are interested in recipe: 2 shots vodka, 1 shot olive juice, 1 shot water 2 olives stuffed with blue cheese. (Side note: do you think Vicky from RHOC will get upset and say Jeff copied her? HA!) Jett doesn’t seem to take Jeff’s comment personally. I was going to say he takes them with a grain of salt but I would be wrong because it’s pretty obvious he takes pride in pleasing Jeff. I have yet to see Jeff lose it with Jett so it must be working. I really like that he’s trying to get Zoila to walk. Zoila would benefit on so many levels going for a walk and I hope she comes around and joins him.

Jenni is one of the rare characters that I see and my gut tells me she is genuinely as nice as you see on Flipping Out. I, like Jeff, thought it wasn’t going to happen for her when I saw her rolling around in the green lizard costume so I truly hope her boyfriend keeps that big smile on her face (sorry again name escapes me) and gives her all the babies she wants. There are some people that deserve all the good that this world has to offer and Jenni is one of them. I cringe every time Jeff disrespects and insults her. Yes Jeff, we ALL make mistakes period! I didn’t like that Bravo edited the preview to make it look like Jeff curses at Jenni and says, “Just fucking apologize and shut up!” It’s deceptive because that was part of interview commentary.

My sons said that Zoila looks and sounds like Grandma so I am a little bit biased. Zoila’s commentary on the first episode this season already has me cracking up and gives us great insight into her relationship with Jeff. Jeff: Look it’s dirty! Zoila: Ha-ha you right bitch. Zoila must know how much Jeff cares for her because although the house looks impeccable she lets her snarky side out. There are too many back and forth between these two so I will quickly list some.

  • Zoila didn’t fix Jeff’s drink or dust something to his liking so her punishment is to give him an extra long massage that night. Yikes!
  • Stewie defecates in the bathtub so her punishment is to clean up the “poo” without gloves because we all know that it will be difficult to get feces out of her nails.
  • Zoila is not consistent with the dogs training and Chris “grumbles” his displeasure when he doesn’t get his food immediately. (I laughed hysterically because my dog does the same to me!)
  • Jeff tips his head to the side with a stern smirk and complains Zoila is watching too much TV.
  • Brazilian wax? That’s all I am going to say.

Jeff and Zoila have a special relationship and with all the snarky comments that fly between the two, you know they take care of each other.

There are many things that people can forgive and move on but what Ryan did, manipulate search engines and websites was deceptive. It’s sad because their relationship did not start with the show; they actually were in a relationship. There are no words for that behavior so Jeff had to mourn that loss and move on. Business boomed for Jeff after cutting his ties with Ryan so much so that he is at a point where he can turn down business. Who do you think he will drop from his client list? Christy, Casa Vega (restaurant), Deborah, who already lost $140K to crooked contractors, the blonde with the baby (side note: couldn’t she run a brush through that hair? She saw the camera crew.), or the lesbian couple that could lay out Jeff? My money is on the lesbians because Jeff was complaining how hands on they were. Glad to see Chris the contractor is still working for Jeff since he always seems to be on top of his game and as you can see he never gets any flack from him.

I actually enjoy watching Jeff’s OCD when he’s working, that’s why he’s so good. Will he have his outburst under control? How did Zoila manage to escape Jeff’s grip and go to New York? Are Jenni and her boyfriend still together? Will we see Trace drink cocktails with little umbrellas with even tinier shorts? Does Jett come through and sell Jeff his next baby or give him another round of martinis? I am not sure but I will be watching! I hope you enjoyed my silly rambles.

In case anyone missed it, Kelly Bensimon of RHONY continues to search me out, after having blocked me and is tweeting to me, here is her latest:

@Kikilet:  lynnNchicago create your own housewives charity. Do something good, you will feel better

It offends me that Kelly seems to think that I need to “feel better” about myself.  I am just fine, in fact I would bet that hour for hour, I do a lot more charity work than she does!  Kelly seems to think that if she tweets one charity’s name that suddenly that charity is gaining thousands of dollars.  She doesn’t give money or time to these charities yet she is trying to lead people to believe that she is. 

Kelly has me blocked so in order to see what I’m tweeting, she has to search my name on Twitter, while that is flattering Kelly, you need to check yourself first before you tell others what to do! 

Kelly also went off on another twitterer about drug use, here is that interaction:

@gavinswife please restrain from accusing me of using drugs. It angers me for anyone to assume. Jealousy is ugly. Be charitable

@gavinswife when others are rude on twitter, they are deflecting. Something horrible must be happening to them. Feel for them.

@gavinswife as a mother, it insulting to assume I would engage in drug use. Its offensive, and It disgusts me.   

There may be more tweets from @gavinswife that were deleted but here is what is left on the timeline…

@gavinswife  i usually find her ignorance humorous & feel sorry for her, try 2 defend her, but she officially pissed me off today. 

@gavinswife  eating unprocessed gummi bears while running in traffic on my unicorn

 @gavinswife  u & i have same opinion of the moron we call Kelly. unfollowing her, following u!

The thing that seems to irritate people most about Kelly is that she thinks anyone who is “rude” or “disrespectful” to her have problems or issues with anger or need to do something to feel better about themselves.  Why can’t people just not like Kelly?  There doesn’t need to be something wrong with you to dislike Kelly Bensmion, she doesn’t need to fix people who disagree with her, maybe it’s time Kelly realizes that SHE is the problem, there is something wrong with HER and her idiotic ideas. 

Rachel Zoe fans (or non-fans) will find this funny!  Check this video out — Rachel Zoe/Real Moments with Rachel Zoe Episode 1 http://youtu.be/4FngN7_DXAg

Don’t forget to follow @followinyoazz on Twitter, she’s created the 1st Annual Real Housewives Twitter Awards and is currently collecting categories.  If you go to her Twitter page and click on her Favorites, you’ll see the categories to date, beginning August 18, all the categories will be set and she will begin to take your votes for each category.  Final awards to be presented on Twitter on August 25.  Fun!

  1. LynnNChicago says:

    Question to Ramona Singer: Can we look forward to an autobiography from you?
    Ramona: “It’s funny you should say that because I actually did a book proposal but because of the outcome of Jill and LuAnn’s books it sort of tainted the Housewives name…because they bombed. I would still love to share my story and be an inspiration to other people.”

    • skogsstig says:

      Thanks for all the good reads, Lynn!
      …and hail Ramona! Always telling it like it is. ;-D

      • Adgirl says:

        Hysterical that she called out the epic failures of Jill & LuAnn’s books. Jill is probably still crowing about how sucessful the Secretions of a Jewish Harpy book was.

    • Ellabean says:

      Hah ! “…because they bombed”.

      Got to love the Ramona no mouth – filter honesty !

    • I think that Jill and LuAnn’s books bombed bc they were books that tried to tell people what to. You need to have respect in order to write that kind of a book. Everyone hates Jill and no one cares about LuAnn one way or the other. I bet if Jill’s book would have come out after season 1 or 2 it would have done well.

      Plus a bio is totally different, and I think Ramona’s could be good because she didn’t have an easy life and people love tales of women who triumph and over come hardships. Someone wouldn’t have to be a Real Housewives fan to enjoy her book. It would be in a totally different category from Jill and LuAnn’s. I would buy it.

      Also:
      “There doesn’t need to be something wrong with you to dislike Kelly Bensmion”
      The scary thing is that she really believes that there is something wrong with anyone who doesn’t like her. She is perfect – it’s everyone else in the world (minus her 5 fans) who has a problem.

  2. Olivia says:

    Something tells me that the Reunion Show is going to be nothing but “mothereffer this, mothereffer that” because I cannot imagine 12 hours worth of anything regarding this mob that would be of interest or remotely close to truth telling.

    We can be assured that Teresa will be lying her soul to hell about her shady finances. Jacqueline will be defending Trashley. Danielle will be her usual “victim”. And Caroline will be defending her “thick as thieves” family the entire time.

    The only thing that will drive me to suicide is if Trashley or Kim G makes an appearance. Or Andy allows Ben the 13 yr old to chime in. Guaranteed.

  3. Anisa says:

    I am @gavinswife. Kelly tweeted that her daughter, Sea, was “coking” tonight. I replied “u might want to change ‘coking’ to ‘cooking’ before some crazy person sends CPS to ur house”. Clearly I was defending her and correcting her spelling. As a mother, I would be mortified if I tweeted “my daughter is coking tonight” for thousands of people to see!! Kelly, being the idiot she is, accused me of accusing her of being a drug user. HOW she got that from my tweet is beyond me. It upset me horribly so I deleted my tweets to her. Now I understand the frustration and anger she puts so many people through everyday just by being so unbelievably stupid! This woman has no business being on a tv show, she should be in a padded cell. Keep up the great blogging, Lynn!!!

    • Adgirl says:

      What’s that saying about when You point your finger at someone there are four fingers pointed back at You?
      Kelly – please count your fingers when you “point” at fellow twitters (twitterers?) and call them disrespectful, mean or need therapy …. sheesh.

    • Kelly is so paranoid and delusional that even words of kindness she interprets as an attack. I can’t remember if it was Sea or Teddy that said sweetly said “You do so much for us” which was met with cut eye and a sarcastic “That’s nice”.

      Kelly is mentally unwell to the extend if Bravo brings her back, I could not even begin to measure my level of disgust. We are aware of there indulging the narcissism of women who are liars, cheats and out of touch but this is an entirely new level of exploitation.

      • jezzibel says:

        I’ve succumbed to the darkside and set up a twitter account for myself…I’m tempted to follow krazy kelly….

        • It’s hard to describe . Have you heard of the movie Fantastic Voyage? It’s kind of like that but instead of being explorers of Kelly’s body instead we orbit her mind and do battle against adjectives like “amazing” and “gross”.

      • twoile says:

        DITTO

  4. Anisa says:

    PS… I deleted my tweets to Kelly because I want nothing to do with this woman. She is psychotic!! I’m wishing I didn’t delete them because I want others to see how misconstrued her way of thinking is!

    • MAMAZ says:

      Oh, we know! She can never just give a straight answer to anything. And as you pointed out she miscontrues anything that isn’t outright praise. Very paranoid.

  5. Squirrels says:

    Great blog Lynn and NightLight95. Didn’t catch Flipping Out, but seems all bases were covered.

    Kelly is a freakazoid.

    TY Ramona for acknowledging what we all suspected. Lu and Zarin’s books landed on the shelves like stink bombs.

    This is a carry over from the last blog, I believe it bears repeating.

    OMG –

    Teresa_Giudice

    “Come see me tonight a @ Chateau Salon in Franklin Lakes for a Skinny Italian book signing. They will have books there to purchase. 7-9pm”

    She’s doing book signings @ a hair salon now? What’s next, hot dog street vendors?

  6. Olivia says:

    Beyond me why anyone would be following Kelly in the first place. Judging from the excerpts Lynn posts here they make no sense. More like a teenaged response without the “ha ha’s” emphasis as employed by Trashley.

  7. Adgirl says:

    I adore FO!!!. Did anyone notice how Jenni refused to discuss her relationship with Jeff? I think she really likes the guy she’s dating.

    Ryan really pissed me off last year. For those of you that don’t know – Ryan Brown was not only Jeff’s former boyfriend but his business partner too. Ryan set up a website with the url “FlippingOut.com” (the name of JEFF’S show that sometimes featured Ryan). The FO website presumably attracted viewers/clients searching for Jeff with the intention to hire Jeff. Ryan set up the site so all of the referrals went to HIS company Brown Designs. Not any to Jeff. It was clearly unethical that Ryan would direct customers of Jeff’s to himself. Especially because the only reason anyone would be looking up FlippingOut is because of Jeff Lewis. Additionally, Ryan bought Google ad words so when “Jeff Lewis” was searched Ryan’s site appeared at the top of the searches (which I don’t think is unethical – many businesses do it).

    It hurts to learn who your “friends” are …

    So glad Jeff has bounced back!

    • Quincy IL says:

      Jeff seemed distraught to me. I think Ryan, whom I dislike, was a moderating force in Jeff’s life. Ryan would keep Jeff’ from going off the cliff with work. Jenny can’t control Jeff because she is the subordinate. I think he’s in trouble.

      • Adgirl says:

        Yeah he’s stressed. And did he gain weight? His face has looked a little off… couldn’t figure it out.

        • Quincy IL says:

          Jen said he was eating one meal a day. It seems that meal is a Happy Meal from MacDonalds so he probably has gained weight.

  8. Noreen says:

    Lynn, thanks so much for calling Kelly out on her “Charitable Tweeting.” It has been driving me crazy that she thinks that because she, the exalted one, the real celebrity of the RH series, calls attention to a charity, she gets some sort of brownie points. And wasn’t it sad when she was tweeting about people needing shelter and clothing and helping them, and not three tweets later she is tweeting about fashion and expensive belts and living in the Hamptons. She is one of the most selfish, egotistical, stupid women occuping space on the planet. Thanks for letting me rant!

    • Kukulet says:

      The ironic thing is that Kelly doesn’t call attention to the charity, she just calls attention to how SHE appears at whatever gala or step and repeat she is photographed at.

      I bugged her all day yesterday to at least post a link to the charity website, to encourage her followers to learn more about the charity itself (and maybe support it) and all she told me was to go to another website so I could buy a backpack with Eva Longoria’s name on it.

      Fundraising is fine, I’m not knocking it…but how does buying a backpack provide substantial information about the efforts of the charity and the problems they are trying to resolve? I thought that was fundamental to ‘raising awareness’.

      • Ellabean says:

        I said it on the other thread – but worth repeating:

        Kukulet – you did good. Cheers.

      • jezzibel says:

        I’m telling you she just wanders around NYC looking for Step&Repeats, the paps and whatever celeb is around that she can get to take a picture with them….the side benefit in her wandering she can stock up on pigeon feathers for her jewelery line.

  9. Ellabean says:

    Just stumbled upon Ramona Singer selling her jewelry line on HSN right now
    (12:30 pm- E.S.T. – Wed).

    I have to admit – she is very good at this. The jewelry is very pretty and tasteful – and she has sincerity, likeability, and believability as a salesperson/designer. It’s a bit expensive for “TV jewelry” – but quite tempting.

    She has come full circle for me: from bat shit crazy in season # 1 to very likeable and admirable. No scandals there. She has a good life and has earned it. Happy Turtle Time, Ramona !

    • vilzvet says:

      Thanks for the reminder! She’s getting two full hours, way to go! So far I like the charm bracelets…

    • Squirrels says:

      I caught a bit of the HSN show. Stuff definitely had the feel she was going for. Not my taste, but her presentation worked well. Green will go with purple and not overpower or get lost, just compliment. She’s given allot of thought to her line, and while pricey, she warned us she would have two different lines. One costume, the other utilizing semi-precious stones and diamond chips. I wish her luck.

      • Olivia says:

        Tuned in for a few minutes and you have to admire the fact that she is definitely a very attractive woman and very professional as well.

        Which makes me question whether she has two separate personalities or if she is “acting” on the NY Housewives since there is not a hint of someone who “tells it like it is” from her appearance so far today. She is low key, informative and very engaged which is a far cry from the shrill character that is on display in the series.

        • Earring Girl says:

          Housewives the series seems to make all of these women act like fools. Maybe its the energy of being around women you really are not that fond of or just bringing the drama to keep that piece of fruit or whatever they have in their hand to take that HW photo.

        • Squirrels says:

          Maybe her “renewal” wasn’t just an acting ploy to get a vacation and party out of it?

          • Olivia says:

            So if I “suggest” that you donate to the Red Cross I can be considered “charitable” too? It seems that this is all she is promoting to make herself look like a philanthropist.

            Kelly is such a fool.

            • Olivia says:

              Sorry, this was meant for the Kelly comments and came too far upthread.

            • Quincy IL says:

              I bet dollars to doughnuts that our Kelly donates nada to charities. I think she lends her face, image, and mouth to them.

              • Tootsie says:

                Do you remember season 2, Kelly had to have someone come to her place to help her go through her own clothes to see what she should give away or keep. She can’t even do that.

        • Ellabean says:

          Of course – this is also middle of workday – no-Happy Hour- Pinot- Yet, Mona that we are seeing.

  10. Olivia says:

    Kelly has always been a cipher for me. Bethenny is queen of snark. Jill is diabolical. Danielle an amoral ho bag. Teresa a greedy neanderthal. Lu Ann a pretentious bore. Ramona a great imbiber. All the others on these two series kind of boring on their own. But Kelly fared worse since most of her scenes allowed me a bathroom break or a chance to fetch a snack since they were mostly snoozefests.

    Up until the VI trip she never once held my interest. And she once again slipped off my radar of interest after those episodes were finished. She adds nothing in either direction.

    • Adgirl says:

      I’m just fascinated by how stupendously untalented and boring she really is.

      How is it she is invited to so many parties & events – especially prior to her RH appearances? She can’t write, speak or look put together. Her figure is awful.
      What is the attraction? Is she invited to functions to (unintentionally) entertain the guests by way of her buffoonery?

      • Kukulet says:

        She’s probably just invited as filler, because hostesses know she’ll show up.

      • Earring Girl says:

        I don’t think she is invited to all of these events, I think she hears about them and just goes, step and repeat (with her blouse as a dress), takes photo, says hiiiiiiii, and than says byeeeeee.

  11. Anitabee says:

    Can someone do me a favor regarding Kelly? I don’t tweet BUT I would LOVE it if someone can ask her to define “Charitable”. She mentions the word in practically every interview or in her tweets daily.

    What a messed-up-Ho-Bag-lost-her-mind-unicorn-loving-some-sort-of-substance-abuser Miss Kell Bensimon is.

    Hopefully, this won’t get you blocked.

    • Ellabean says:

      I second that.

      Kukulet spoke t her about her use of “integrity” and “authentic”.

      “Charitable” has to be next.

    • Kukulet says:

      She already defined “charitable” as “fundraising, donating and raising awareness”. That’s “charitable” in Kellyland. In the real world, it translates to “self promotion, self promotion, and self promotion.”

      • Anitabee says:

        So interesting as that poor excuse of a housewife doesn’t do ANY of those things.

        Can it be as simple as she is just dumb? In the true sense of the word.

        • Kukulet says:

          I don’t know if it is mental illness, drugs, or just plain lack of intelligence-probably all three-but she’s definitely not firing on all cylinders.

      • dumberries says:

        I don’t have a problem with anyone truly helping charities in any manner, even if their motivation is self promotion. However, with Kelly, I see no evidence that she helps any charities in any way. Just telling others to be charitable is not charitable! After your tweet exchange with her yesterday, it’s obvious she does nothing to effectively assist charities. And, the much-applauded (by Zarin) donation of the Gilles photo-shoot donation to Creaky Joints was never even delivered. She’s the worst.

        • Adgirl says:

          I notice it must be us little people (like those of us not on TV) that are supposed to do the trench work.

        • I know we have said this time and time again….but Kelly is crazy. I sent her a few tweets- one in regards to her tweeting a picture of her with a horse- where she said ‘Cute pony- great cause’….and replied, “And what cause would that be?’-because there wasn’t anything else there information wise- at least that I could see.

          And she answered
          “Did you know that $1 can feed 5 families, spend your time being helpful not hurtful”

          I answered, I wasn’t being hurtful and that she was being vague.

          I think we should tweet her off the deep end. Maybe she will have a ‘tweet’ dreams about us.

    • Noreen says:

      “What a messed-up-Ho-Bag-lost-her-mind-unicorn-loving-some-sort-of-substance-abuser Miss Kell Bensimon is. ” Anitabee you have summed that girl up to perfection. I am still laughing!

  12. moriasheehan says:

    Great Blog, can’t wait to watch the episode.
    After I looked at the link with the appraisals for T&J’s junk, I started wondering if they have traded out their new stuff with the Manzo’s and Laurita’s old stuff. All the poor and rusty condition stuff. The new stuff is all in other peoples garages.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      all the good stuff was definately swapped or hidden in garages before they filed their petition. that house will be fully furnished within 24 hours of the auction!

  13. Scorpiosue1102 says:

    Just read that Dina was not at the reunion taping. Her excuse was that Danielle was there. New excuses are needed to make all this plausible. On the flip side the reunion took 12 hours to shoot. That’s a lot of time for 4 ladies.

    • Ellabean says:

      Dina tweeted last week that she went to the John Mayer concert in stead.
      There actually was a JM concert at a central NJ music venue the night of the taping.

  14. Vebture Capitolist Acquiring blogs says:

    Mean Site !

  15. dumberries says:

    Nice guest blog!

    On another topic, I’m way too curious about this whole Juicy drunk driving scenario (especially after reading Shadows post on the last blog). There is no way in hell that he was out after 1 a.m. and wasn’t drinking before he plowed into the trees. Every time we see him eating or relaxing, he’s drinking (which is fine, just don’t get behind the wheel). But, we are expected to believe he went to dinner with wife and friends and didn’t drink. Then, his wife went home separately and he went WHERE for several hours? In San Francisco, very few restaurants stay open past 11 p.m. (unless there is a bar attached). I suspect it’s the same or earlier in an NJ suburb. Then, he winds up plowing into the trees right outside his dad’s house, goes in and gets plastered and then calls the police. This is the stupidest story and it irks me that the rest of NJ crew is backing him up on television so we will all say, “okay, that makes sense – if Teresa and Jac say that’s what happened, it must be true”. Please.

    On the Bravo post, someone commented that maybe he went back to work at the pizzeria and then was tired and crashed. Remotely possible, but I can’t believe he’d call it a day, go out to dinner, and then go back to the pizza joint and crash right by his dad’s house. Someone else wrote “he might have went to Denny’s”. Why go to a diner after you had a fancy dinner. Stupid.

    So, I’m wondering if Juicy actually went to his dad’s house to drink and/or meet someone after the group dinner and hit the trees as he was leaving. Seems to make much more sense. I really hope he doesn’t worm his way out of the 30 days of community service. Given his record and with the bs he’s spewing about the accident, he should be incredibly grateful that he got what I consider a slap on the wrist and that he didn’t kill himself or someone else. Serve the community axxhole – it’s the least you can do after all the money you’ve milked from it!

    Okay – done venting! I so despise the Giudices more and more with each unethical incident that pops up and their total disregard for the truth and doing the right thing. Shameless dirt bags.

    • Olivia says:

      But if he had gone back to the pizza parlor wouldn’t they have mentioned that as giving him another excuse to plead how hard he works and the long hours he puts in that caused him to “yawn”? No one said that.

      It was his father’s friends house that he went to and where he drank those shots to “calm” his nerves. The truth is that he was somewhere other than home or with his wife after they had been out to dinner. Either he dropped her off and left, or she went home by other means. I think this is typical of how they live which may account for her spending sprees. She spends to her heart’s content assured in the knowledge that he won’t interfere since he is out “doing his own thing” with whoever or whatever interests him.

      All that junk talk about his “devotion” to his wife and kids is just that. And possibly we saw the real Juicy Joe with the christening and that trip. If ever it looked like a man who wished to be elsewhere it was Joe. He was in no hurry to get her to the hospital when she was about to deliver either. Perhaps Teresa had to plead with Caroline to watch the kids for a few hours because he simply could not take being cooped up with those monsters any longer than necessary.

      It may have been an act of “mercy” on Caroline’s part more than time with Joe for sex.

      • Squirrels says:

        Maybe they had a money fight after getting home and he took off in a huff and hit the closest bar?

        • dumberries says:

          Could be. But, I think the proximity to his dad’s house is too coincidental. Seems more likely that dad’s house is his place to getaway and party (or whatever) and he got in the accident when he was leaving. We’ll probably never know the truth, but it’s so suspicious on many levels to me…

      • dumberries says:

        Thanks Olivia for clarifying “it was his father’s friend’s house”, not his father’s house. I missed that part in all the versions of the story! Still find it equally coincidental and suspicious. I think he’s got a “getaway spot” (dad’s house, dad’s friend’s house…) where he conducts his juicy man extracurricular activities and he was leaving that spot (not happening by it on his way home) when he obliterated the trees.

        • Adgirl says:

          Wasn’t Tamra Barney involved somehow? Maybe he was feeling her up and she punched him in the nose which made him crash. Guess she won’t be his Goomar.

  16. Olivia says:

    Ramona is letting the host do most of the talking which would be so different if this were Jill. She would be interrupting, talking over, and refusing to let the host get a word in edgewise.

    It is difficult for me to equate this Ramona the professional with Ramona the half buzzed Housewife! My world is upside down!

    • dumberries says:

      Ramona epitomizes the “work hard, play hard” professional. She doesn’t mix the two and does both with equal vigor! Bethenny seemed the same way before the pregnancy. Probably why they are among the most respected – they’re real businesswomen with a party side.

      • Quincy IL says:

        Bethenny works hard and plays hard too. She’s worked and now is on her way to the Hamptons according to facebook.
        I don’t know how Jason gets all of that time off. The drug reps around her work a lot of hours.

      • Kukulet says:

        I think both Ramona and Bethenny are experts at compartmentalizing the different aspects of their lives. I’ve seen that a lot with abused children or people who grew up with some element of trauma in their home lives. They learn to compartmentalize in order to keep the “bad” part of their lives from overlapping into other areas. I think it begins when they are very small, when the adults in the “bad” part of their lives encourage them to keep certain things secret from the “outside” and it grows from there. So, when they reach adulthood, it has become second nature.

        I also think that is why Ramona and Bethenny are so driven, work wise. It’s the part of their lives they have the most control over, and working hard solidifies that control. Control-security.

    • This is why RHONY is more interesting than the other RH flavors….the wives actually DO SOMETHING besides sit around & bitch all day….okay all of them but Jill & Kelly….oh, I see you too, Lulu, scuttling back to the “good girls couch” now that you see which Team “won.”

  17. Olivia says:

    You would think that with all of Kelly’s gallivanting around NYC she would have been able to “hook up” with somebody by now. But for the past three seasons of this series, Kelly has never had a romantic attachment. Tells you something about Kelly’s personality that she is unable to sustain relationships. Even Lu Ann found someone.

    • Quincy IL says:

      Bethenny found someone too. I think all Kelly can do is flirt. She doesn’t seem able to connect.

    • Gypsy862 says:

      It’s hard to have a sustained relationship when you beat up your bfs.

    • Noreen says:

      So how long has it been since Kelly’s seen any action? I’m thinking her younger daughter’s age plus 40 weeks or so. Maybe that’s her problem – remember Elaine from Seinfeld when she went without? The garbage was piling up in her brain. That’s why Kelly is so stupid.

      • Ellabean says:

        That was a funny episode. And I don’t think Kelly has bought up all the Sponges in Manhattan either – while trying to find someone who is Sponge-worthy. 😉

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Kelly had a long term thing going until she punched him out. She is good at flirting…but adults have an annoying habit of turning a flirtation into a relationship….

  18. Ellabean says:

    More thoughts on Kelly’s use of “charitable”. Her Tweet:”… @gavinswife please restrain from accusing me of using drugs. It angers me for anyone to assume. Jealousy is ugly. Be charitable ”

    She now plugs in the word “charitable” at every turn . But she stupidly uses it as an opposite adverb for every negative adverb:

    As in: “jealousy”. The opposite to Kelly – is ” charitable”.

    No stupid – the opposite of charitable is selfish.

    You could accuse her of any negative: lazy, dirty, disorganized or too silly or being lousy cook – and she would still oddly counter with no – be more “charitable”. Huh ?

    It’s mind boggling. It’s her same odd pattern of thought & language. Once she seizes on a new word – she uses it it over and over – not fully grasping its meaning or appropriate context – syntax – or tense: integrity, authentic, cook not chef, amazing.

    • dumberries says:

      Agreed, her ignorance of context is mind boggling. Other choice words she uses out of context: admire, organic, charming……….

      • Kukulet says:

        Some personality disorders (including narcissistic) mimic “normal” behavior in order to fit in, and assimilating words and overusing them in the wrong context is part of that. But, because they don’t process information in a normal way, their viewpoint is similarly skewed, and they don’t understand that it comes across as abnormal.

        Again, I don’t know if Kelly is mentally ill, but that could be an indication.

        • Ellabean says:

          Bingo ! Kukulet – spot on. I know we’ve all read many analyses of her “issues” on the blogs these last months . The one you just wrote is very – very good. Mimic is definitely one of the things she does. The whole Bethenny career path is one example…

        • Noreen says:

          A friend of mine who divorced her husband in his earlier 40’s said he was diagnosed narcissistic. She was told by the court ordered psychologist that narcissism gets worse as you get older. Maybe that is what we are seeing with Kikilet.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        ecosystem, systematic, integrity, celebrate…..

    • Noreen says:

      And everyone is always “jealous” of her. Paranoid.

      • dumberries says:

        @Noreen, I am actually a little jealous -lol. She just collects her huge alimony and child support payments, spends her days doing cartwheels, fleeting about, leaving her kids with nannies, sneaking in shots of Patrone, making vapid little youtube videos, and tweeting people that they should lead more meaningful lives. She’s got it made (tongue in cheek).

        • Noreen says:

          LOL! There is no justice in this world, just random lolipops and gummy bears raining down on the likes of Kelly Bensimon.

          Don’t forget the running in traffic.

  19. MAMAZ says:

    NightLight95 – Thanks for the guest blog! I love FO. Jeff is obviously still very hurt by what Ryan did to him. He was awful to Jenni on last night’s episode. But I think he’s pushing Jenni away because he’s afraid of being hurt by her as well. He mentioned trusting Sarah because she’s family. He was devasted by the betrayal and loss of friendship. We will probably see some Jeff come to grips with what happened this season. Hopefully he will treasure Jenni even more when he realizes he is mistreating her for what Ryan did and she is still standing by him.

    • Night Light says:

      Thank you so much! Once I saw that Lynn posted it I got goose-bumps. I am looking forward to seeing how this season plays out because I like the group. Not counting Ryan, I don’t think anybody has any ulterior motives. Its the day in the life of Jeff Lewis and the people who work for him. Bethenny’s show follows that template and so does Kathy Griffin. Which is funny because those are the three shows I love to watch.

      • Adgirl says:

        Your write up was awesome. Thank you!!

        I’m a huge fan of FO. I love Jeff Lewis better than any other Bravo personality. He’s just such a damaged soul under all of that bluster.

        Thanks for your blog- I really hope you continue!!!

        • Night Light says:

          Thank you so much Adgirl! Between you and me part of my job is to take minutes at meetings which quite frankly are flat most of the time because of the participants. I really liked writing this blog and remembered how much I enjoy writing to begin with.

  22. Earring Girl says:

    I don’t know if this has been posted – the readers comments are interesting:

    http://blog.zap2it.com/thedishrag/2010/08/real-housewives-nj-fact-vs-fiction-joe-giudices-accident-and-dui.html

    • dumberries says:

      Well, I’ll give her credit for admitting she’s been spreading negativity and she needs to reel it back in.

      But, I can’t believe she’s defending Joe on the DUI thing again. She doesn’t know where he went or what he did after dinner and the most she can honestly say is that she believes his “yawn” story. What time did the the dinner end? Where was the dinner in proximity to the crash? Why are they leaving out these critical details that would shed more light on the story? Jac wasn’t there when it happened, so she has no first-hand knowledge about his state when the accident happened. She looks foolish for bringing this up and defending such a non-sense story. I believe the police’s version over the Guidice’s and Jac’s.

      • Kukulet says:

        There is no way that Jac could know whether Joe was under the influence when he crashed the car.

        I find it really hard to believe that he didn’t have a drink when they all went out to dinner. We’ve seen him drinking on the show at numerous times, especially during meals. Always the red wine. But, now, we all supposed to buy that one of the very few times he didn’t drink at all was the same night he just happened to crash his car? Right. Sure. What an unfortunate coincidence, aye? Poor Juicy.

        Jac says he only hit a pole. He didn’t just hit a pole. He hit a bunch of trees and then he hit a pole.

        He “just yawned big and closed his eyes for a second”. Uh, no. When you just close your eyes for a second, you might swerve or brush the shoulder, or at worst, end up in a roadside ditch, but you don’t fly off the road through a bunch of trees into a pole. Think about it. Just one second allows you time to correct your direction before you head completely off the road, even if you did swerve. I also don’t know anyone who closes their eyes and accelerates at the same time when they are driving.

        Jac said he wasn’t “drunk”. Well, aside from the blood alcohol test, which indicates otherwise, I wish people like her would learn that you don’t have to be sodden drunk-which is usually what they mean by “drunk”-to crash a car. One beer, one drink, one glass of wine is enough to inhibit your alertness and your reflexes to the point that you shouldn’t be operating a vehicle.

        She should have just kept her mouth shut about this. She looks like a gullible idiot who is willing to turn a blind eye to the reality of drinking and driving.

        • Squirrels says:

          Sounds to me like he blacked out. Maybe more issues than meets the camera?

        • Jack-hole is so blatantly stupid- it’s almost pathetic when she tries to play lawyer.

          She thinks that just because he was taken to the hospital first instead of being arrested at the scene that it is some how an indication of his innocence.

          Even if we were dumb enough to beleive this tale, being tired enough to crash your car while driving is still impairment.

          Nor does it change the undeniable facts that Joe Giudice is a menace behind the wheel.

          • ms molly says:

            Jacqueline is just so overjoyed that the Manzo’s and Guidice’s have accepted her back into their fold, she’s damn near running up behind people stopping them on the street, trying to defend their behavior. I have never met anyone as gullible as this woman.

    • Earring Girl says:

      Wowsa!!! Her blog made my eyes and head hurt. The little I did read was too much “love and light” and “after I have been crazy all season” from what I read on this blog (I do not watch RHONJ) – lets all get “positive” now.

      Yesterday I did read some interesting comments about Jacq being the other pole dancer. It was comments between two guys on something that was posted yesterday if I can find it I will post it here for you to read. I bring this up because when I read that article (2008?) that was mostly commented by the people in NJ before the NJ housewives started on tv I thought they were talking about Jacq and Danielle because they were friends when the show started and they probably shared a lot of information with each other. Also Jacq use to live in Vegas and was a hair dresser, divorced and had a child. IMHO

      • Quincy IL says:

        I don’t think she was a pole dancer. Her dad is retired military and was head of security for a casino enterprise. I think she was a hairdresser in a strip mall as someone mentioned seeing her here on this blog a while ago. I think she took odd modeling assignments and trips to cities like Chicago on weekend for a few extra bucks. That is where she met her Laurita and dated him for a decade.

    • MickeyMouth says:

      The mea culpa was a good start.

      I can’t even comment on her Ashley ramblings or the lecture (to who, herself) about how to live and let live.

      She lost me at Joe. I don’t believe Joe, Teresa or Jacqueline re the car crash.

  23. ilovelynn says:

    my friend that went to theresa’s book signing in pa. said that you had to pay $20 to get in and then you got her book and she signed it. is that normal for a book signing? paying to get in? never went to one.

    • MickeyMouth says:

      None I’ve ever been too.

    • Earring Girl says:

      • vilzvet says:

        What kind of place was it? A Borders or Barnes & Noble would certainly not charge, just have to buy the book there. But she’s been booking herself into these weird stores that may want a cut of the profits. Or she’s just greedy, of course.

    • Kukulet says:

      I’m confused – the $20 was a cover charge to get in, or the $20 was for a signed copy of the book?

      I’ve worked with many authors, and been to more book signings than I can count. It’s customary to provide copies of the book for people to buy, but it USUALLY isn’t required that customers buy the book on the spot. At those events, customers are welcome to bring in books that they’ve bought elsewhere.

      But, it depends on the author/venue/publicist. Sometimes, you are required to buy a copy of the book. Usually it’s at a reduced price for the book itself, with a little extra added on top for the “privilege” of getting the personal autograph. It’s not as common-I think it’s sleazy myself-but it does happen.

      Where was this in PA? A bookstore? Because some bookstores will do it that way to cover their cost when the author charges them for a personal appearance.

      • Ellabean says:

        I too – am familiar with “In-Store” appearances. Re: musical celebs doing in-stores to promote CD’s. There is NEVER a cover charge. But it is as Kukulet described, you are encouraged to purchase a book or CD or DVD – if you want to get in line for a signature and photo. But you are never forced.

        Look at the book signing appearances that Kathy Griffin has been highlightig on her show this season. Same rules appear to apply. But NO cover charge.

        What bookstore in the the Lehigh Valley (greater Allentown , Pa) was this ? It had to be a “one stop” (privately owned) versus a large chain like Borders or Barnes & Noble.

    • Laura aka Just done says:

      So if I go, I have to bring cash just to get in? What kind of racket is this, and does the trustee know?

    • Ellabean says:

      Hey again ilovelyn….hope you saw my message earlier about Macungie, Pa.

      Ditto on the question below: What bookstore was Teresa’s appearance at…?
      Or was it a bookstore ? On video posted yesterday – T did make an appearance at an Italian restaurant there. Two separte appearances in the area ?

      • Laura aka Just done says:

        Just called Chateau, and there is no cover charge for the book signing tonight.

        • MAMAZ says:

          Racheal Ray did a signing at my local bookstore last year. They charged $45! to get in. I’m not sure if it was the store or RR who set the price.

          • It kind of reminds me of Kate’s sad book signing when she was doing dancing with the stars- and they tried to get random people who were in the book store for other reasons to pretend they were there for Kate.

      “Did she get undies with the days of the week on them?” Lol! Yes, she did. And, Zarin sewed a tag with her name on the inside of each, “A. Shapiro-Zarin”. It does seem like Zarin is sending a fifth grader off to camp. But, doesn’t she just come across as the best mom ever in the world?

      • Earring Girl says:

        • I’m with you. I can’t stand her and I think she embodies the worst traits of everyone on the show.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I like Kim G as well – she doesn’t give a fig about Danielle’s you can’t be friends with me if you are friends with them rule! As if – she is a grown up and she can decide who she wants to associate with, where she wants to go and tells Danielle when she is off base – like Danny’s behavior and language at the fundraiser at the Brownstone or at her faux birthday party when she started whining about not wanting to hear the Manzo name. Kim G gave Danielle a chance to have an adult interaction/bridge on the show and Danielle burned it down (after she took Kim’s money, car/driver/invites to places she would never be invited too). Kim’s only downfall is that she stooped to the skanky, trash talking, slut fashion, whorish level of Danielle.

    • Zipit Zarin says:

I thought @Boston’s comparison of her to the granny in Sylvester and Tweety was perfect! However, I must say, she looks darn good in this photo, like she’s had a major “renewal”. Danielle and her friend look good too. They’re all nuts, but they look better than I’ve seen before.

    And finally, everybody’s favorite bankrupt housewife Teresa Giudice spoke to UsWeekly magazine, basically telling the mag her daughters – Gia, 9, Gabriella, 6, Milania, 5 and Audriana, 11 months – are not too young to wear makeup.

    “They see their mommy doing it and they want to do whatever mommy does,” Teresa, 38, tells the mag, adding, “It’s just lip gloss.”

        I think Gabriella is a gorgeous little girl too. She also seems to have the “second child” personality, which I understand.

    Here is the answer to the discussion up thread reagrding the personal appearance Teresa did in Pennsylvania yesterday – and the charge of $20. per person.

    This was a “meet & greet” booksigning event at an Italian restaurant. It’s legitimate.
    Cheesey, but legitimate. Scroll down on the restaurant’s link below.

      That isn’t uncommon. The restaurant had to pay Theresa and cover their own costs.

        Not that the dresses worn by the two little girls are the same copy of the dress worn by Dina at the restaurant where the table got tipped over in Season 1. I remember the style because it reminded me of the top half of a pair of baby doll pajamas I owned in the 70’s.

        The little girls dress are purple and Dina’s was blue. Same dress design. Nothing like putting your small children in evening wear before the age of 7. “Teresa being Teresa”. Cute.

          • Olivia says:

            Got news for Teresa: those kids inherited Joe’s height. They are all going to have Snooki’s “figure” when they hit their teens which means by the age of 30 their waistlines are going to be competing with the size of their necks.

    Question: Isn’t Kelly systematically bullying you, Lynn? Just a thought. She’s purposely blocking you so you can’t defend yourself, looking up your twitters and then slamming them and repeatedly baiting you. Seems that perhaps before she begins crying about being bullied she should stop bullying people herself. B*tch.

    • dumberries says:

      Good point! It would be classic for Lynn to make a youtube video about how to avoid being Kellimatically bullied on twitter…

  42. Scorpiosue1102 says:

    Weren’t we getting all these PSA’s and tweets from Kelly about how systematic bullying is sooo wrong??? Funny how systematic bullying is no longer important. If was such an important cause to Kelly you’d think she’d put more time into it than a week or two. Just sayin’…ewwww I just used a Danielle saying.

      This is where Bravo stinks. Reading that Danielle is going for a show down with Caroline….why?? Bravo is absolutely setting this all up. I can see no reason for any of these ladies to get together or WANT to get together. If I wanted drama like that I would watch Young and the Restless.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        agreed why have a showdown? is it really necessary?
        neither of them want to be friends. Caroline has said all she needed to say last season – she talked the talk and walked the walk this season!

        • dumberries says:

          Makes me think Caroline is really planning to leave after this season. It’ll be like Dina’s departure: decide to leave the show, set-up a meeting with Danielle, announce you’re departure and blame Danielle. Danielle would probably agree to it knowingly. She doesn’t care. She’ll take the air time and credit for knocking out another Manzo. Will be interesting to see how this dinner plays out…

    Teresa’s tweet—-32 minutes ago—-On my way to my book signing at Chateau Salon. I’m gonna be on time yay

    guesstimate—
    Laura should be leaving her house.
    About 30 minutes to get there. (giggling all the way)
    Arrives—appx 7 people in line waiting for Chewbacca’s autograph.
    Laura stands still in shock for 15 minutes staring at how homely Teresa is in person.
    (she shakes it off)
    Laura takes a few pictures. Checks to see if Teresa’s butt ugly face broke her camera.
    On her way out she stops in the rest room to wash out her eyes.
    Back in car.
    Stops for a bottle of whiskey so she can drink and forget the horror of seeing Teresa live in person.
    30 minute drive home.
    Home! Opens bottle, signs on.

    I’m guessing about 10:30-11 EST our Laura will be home.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Damn! We forgot to tell her to dress so she blends in with the Tfans!

      • Laura aka Just done says:

        I couldn’t have possibly “blended” with them…I stuck out like a sore thumb. She actually asked me if I lived in Franklin Lakes, when I said no, Morris County, she said “So do I!” Then she asked me what town, and proceeded to tell me what a beautiful Italian town I live in. BTW, I’m not Italian (100% Irish and I look it) and my neighborhood has all different nationalities. Definitely not just Italian. I think she was a little in shock when I told her what town I was from. I was dressed in shorts and sandals, very little make-up, and hair pulled back.

        She must have thought that I possibly can’t live in my town, dressed “down” the way I was! LOL

    • Laura aka Just done says:

      Hey everyone…ok, I’m back, and I just poured myself a skinnygirl margerita. Needed it after that. First off, I got there and there was a line of girls (teens mostly) and some were early 20’s. All with big hair and god-awful tans. I waited to be escorted in, only to wait again. I was floored when someone from Chateau offered me a wine spritzer. they were offering them to everyone. Also, there was someone with a clothing store there, with her clothes set up inside of Chateau…very bizarre.

      I began talking to a couple of women in front of me. One was a mom who brought her two teen girls, the other brought one teen girl. The first mom knew NOTHING about chewbaca…it was reallly funny. The other one, on the other hand, lives very close to me and had driven around to all of the houses (Caroline, Dina, Jac) before coming to Chateau. We were talking about the auction, etc. She is NOT a Teresa fan, thank god! I wasn’t the only one.

      Now it’s my time to go up and meet the lovely Teresa. Ughhh…wtf was she wearing? It was a neon pink satin dress…god it was awful. She shakes my hand and says “no pictures?” (I didn’t bring my camera) I handed her the book and asked her to make it out to my sister. She asked why I wasn’t getting one even though “you’re soooooo skinny, you don’t need it.” I told her I wasn’t a fan, and this was a gift. This led to a full on conversation about why I wasn’t a fan, and how come my sister didn’t come with me for the book. I explained that they were at their house in LBI (Jersey shore) and she told me that she was going there on Friday. I asked who she was staying with. (She didn’t get the inference.) This woman is too stupid for words. 🙂

      She finished by saying that she hoped she had changed my mind about her, and I told her no, and that I was going to go home and write on Lynn’s blog about the experience. She looked at me kind of funny, and then she said “ok, hope to see you in LBI.” She is just a stupid woman, and guess what, she looks much worse in person if anyone can believe that. As I walked out, someone from Chateau asked if I’d like a menu…so Lynn, I have a menu for you. I didn’t think you wanted the book. I know I didn’t!

      As I walked out the door, I heard someone whisper “she’s a hater.” I don’t know who said it, but I know it wasn’t chewbaca. You couldn’t miss her voice.

      BTW, there were approximately 30-40 people there, but as someone had pointed out, she was on her home territory. None of the other ladies were there, and I kept looking for Kim G. She was a no-show.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        So, how does she get over a thousand people when she’s out of her area and only 30 – 40 in her neck of the woods? Oh, that’s right – people who live near her may actually know her or have been stiffed by her and Juicy. I bet there will be a lot of “haters” at the auction…

    Although Kelly won’t tune into the D.C. show, saying it’s “not my game,” she is grateful for the opportunity to be part of the broadcasting brand.

    “So what if someone calls you a name?” Kelly says. “Haters are part of the ecosystem. Have fun with it. I’m having so much fun with it, and I’m able to be charitable on top of it. And my kids love it. It’s a win-win. I don’t see anything wrong with it.”

    She continues, “Now I get to put my money where my mouth is, and actually go out there and be in the trenches and be part of what’s going on and be charitable, which is important. A lot of people are skinny cats and they’re like ‘yah, I’m so cool for school, I can’t go to a party because somebody’s going to recognize me.’ I’m like ‘how about taking the hat off, smiling, putting your name out there, giving the stamp of approval on whatever charity it is, and helping them so we can make people better.”

    Okay, I asked Jacqueline about Joe’s accident, and how she could know he wasn’t drunk when she wasn’t there, and she said, basically, that there were ten or so people at dinner and they all shared just one bottle of wine, because no one felt like drinking. She said Joe left the restaurant with them, and they gave Theresa a ride home, for whatever reason. Jac also said that the cops didn’t charge him at the scene and that the issue of a DWI didn’t come up until after they had sent him to the hospital and the hospital did the blood test. You know, he had some shots right after the accident, and that’s why he had such a high blood alcohol reading, etc, etc.

    I pointed out to her that even 1/2 of a glass of wine can impair function, and that it is SOP for cops to send someone straight to the hospital after that kind of accident (I saw the images of the car, and it was pretty wrecked) in case of internal injury. Not charging him with anything at the scene means nothing-even if they suspected him of DWI at the scene, they still would have done exactly what they did – skipped the breathalyzer and the road test and just sent him to the hospital, knowing that a blood test would reveal any alcohol.

    She came back and said that Joe only had 1/4 of a glass of wine, and that was three hours before he was driving.

    So, it either took ten people more than three hours to eat dinner (in a restaurant where other patrons were waiting to be seated and none of them were, apparently, relaxing over cocktails), or there’s a period of time between leaving the restaurant and the accident where she couldn’t have known what Joe was doing.

    She also said she would never turn a blind eye to drinking and driving, even for a friend.

    You be the judge.

    • dumberries says:

      Thank you for asking her Kukulet. You’re our twitter sleuth! Absolute crap is my judgement. She should not volunteer info or answer questions on this. Even if she only saw him drink 1/4 glass of wine at dinner (right), she doesn’t know what happened between the restaurant and the crash. Unless it’s on video, she can’t know. She should just say she believes his story and leave it at that.

    Re: Flipping Out,

    It’s wonderful to see Jeff successful once again. Glad that Jeff was able to wrestle control of web traffic from Ryan. That was sneaky and devious. Ryan knew Jeff was struggling financially, yet he stole, or “re-directed” business away from him. He blamed Jeff for not changing his business plan, all the while making sure he wouldn’t get the new opportunites coming his way. Awful. To lose a friend, who was and ex-lover and their daughter, whom he adored must have been devastating for Jeff. Money, when allowed, can ruin people, and destroy friendships and families.

    Re: Jac-ass

    No wonder TrashyAshley is as awful as she is. Jac has given in to her continuously, by Ashley acting smug and unbothered by everything. When she didn’t mind her clothes taken away she purchased more? When her car was taken away and she said her friends would give her rides, she got her car back? When her room was stripped she was grateful and yet was able to get her luxuries back? NO NO NO!
    She couldn’t pull that in any household that I know. She wouldn’t smile, smirk or shrug away any punishment. She wouldn’t be happy with two outfits, one to wash and one to wear. She wouldn’t be able to get rides from friends, as she’d be grounded without a car. School and back home. No tv, computer or phone would be allowed. Listen to the radio. I know some kids are hard to crack. Ashley is not that smart. It is that her mother is tired, dumber and a martyr who is moving on. Her antics seem to be a power play against her mom. Her mom as usual, defends herself, defends her daughter and wants sympathy. Did you ever?

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Jacq wants to be a friend more than a mother to Ashley.

      Mom what are you doing on Lynn’s Blog? 🙂

    • Squirrels says:

      Some kids just know how to wear down a parent. It’s always a waiting game. Ashley knows her mother better than her mother knows her.

    • Kukulet says:

      This Real Mother says that if a daughter of mine smirked, behaved, or pulled the smug crap at me the way Trashley does, she wouldn’t dare to do it twice.

      Yes, some kids are hard to crack, but it all comes down to how much you are willing to put up with as a parent. You can’t draw lines in the sand when it comes to certain things – you have to set them in concrete. Like respect, consideration, responsibility, and good manners. And you can’t be a friend and a parent with a teenage/young adult girl. Parent first, and the chance to be a friend will come later.

    Gretchen Rossi Never Paid Jay Photoglou, Back in Court Today

    Remember the judgment Jay Photoglou won in court from Gretchen Rossi for $22,000? Turns out she didn’t pay him after all. On the advice of boyfriend Slade Smiley, known for his honesty and forthrightness when it comes to money matters, she got tax information on Jay and made the check out to the California Franchise Tax Board.

    http://moreabsurd.blogspot.com/2010/05/jay-wins-in-court.html

    Well folks, that move did not go as Ms. Rossi planned. FTB rejected the check. She has to go to court today with a cashier’s check made out to guess who?

  64. boston02127 says:

    from-AbsurdtoSublime—-
    A colleague of mine received an email from Catherine Ommanney’s attorney yesterday, suggesting that she “cease and desist” from saying that “Cat” was a topless dancer with a criminal record for theft. It ’s all right to wonder if she has a work permit or if she boffed Prince Harry, apparently. Here’s a copy of the “cease and desist”
    Please be advised that I represent Catherin Ommanney and please direct all further communications to the undersigned. I have reviewed you most recent post that you author and indicate that my client, Ms. Ommanney was a topless dancer and has a criminal record for theft. Please know that these allegations, you allege as facts, are completely false and defamatory. Please immediately cease and desist in publishing this false information and remove this post and/or the facts relating to Ms. Ommanney, within 24 hours, to avoid any further legal action against you and your publisher.
    Actually, it looks bogus, with the misspellings and the wording. Excuse me, but this famewhore went on reality television and expected her past wouldn’t come out? Excuse me, Cat, but we all read the article about you in the notorious “Daily Mail”. Great Britain’s tabloids make ours look like the Christian Science Monitor.

    • Kukulet says:

      It’s okay for her to have everyone think that she did the horizontal mambo with Harry, but not that she was a topless dancer? Better a slut who would screw a guy just because he has a title than a boob flasher? Go figure that one.

      Even the Daily Mail didn’t have to use any of their usual creative tactics to make her look bad.

      And she didn’t boff Harry. She may have planted a lip lock on him before his protection officer could peel her off, but she only wishes she had boffed him. Everyone knows it. C’mon, Cat. Harry gets enough early morning ugly with Cowmilla-he’s not looking to add any more to his life. And he is his mother’s son – the kid has SOME taste.

    • Squirrels says:

      The way I see it? Bloggers are getting to the “stars”. Does Cat deserve it? Who knows. What I do know is this blog never posts anything legally derogatory without extensive research. That and that alone is why they will never be able to shut Lynn down. We police ourselves. If i post something without proof, I’ll be called out, as I should. We all make errors in judgement, get snarky, even crabby. Yet, never, since Lynn’s last eviction has anyone, at any time, gone over the edge.

      Big round of applause to all who post here. Bravo – or Brava, as the case may be.

  65. boston02127 says:

    from–AbsurdtoSublime—
    What I’m curious about are the rumors surrounding Cat. I keep reading she does something incredibly racist and Bravo has been planning her exit before the show began airing. They expect her to be more disliked than Michaele which is hard to believe.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Does Cat do this on the show or off the show? Bravo is cutting it’s own throat if they let her do it on air! As for her being upset that her past in the UK won’t be staying there – lol and welcome to America!

    • Scorpiosue1102 says:

      I did read somewhere that the Salahi’s crashing is just one of the major things that happens. The second happens after the crashing of the state dinner. Maybe it has to do with Cat.

  66. Olivia says:

    Just getting caught up on the postings. Am thinking of starting my own blog: “I Hate Kim G”! With her nose always on the “scent” for attention she probably would be thrilled.

    What’s the deal with this broad other than her ability to shamelessly push herself into every situation that requires a camera? So she hates Danielle. We all do! But hating Danielle is about as newsworthy as discovering yet another person who hates Osama bin Laden!

    She has easily shown her duplicitous and nasty nature all played out against Danielle. Big whooping deal! Nobody likes Danielle. Even her kids look disgusted most of the time.

    And I would love to meet up with the idiot who referred to her as “always classy Kim G”. Something tells me he/she described Teresa in exactly those words which suggests that he/she uses the word classy as often as Kelly does “awesome”.

    If Kim G is “classy” I was just admitted to MIT!

  67. Olivia says:

    Just reading that other piece about the Reunion and the suggestion of a “sitdown” meal with Danielle and Caroline. You have got to be kidding!

    If this is so, then it merely underscores how we, the viewers, have been “played”. There is no reason on this earth to suggest this meeting considering the “damage” done by both sides in squaring up against one another these last two seasons. All kidding aside this is just not funny at all.

    Does it also suggest that the Trashley/Danielle incident was for the sake of the camera? Or the Brownstone event was staged beforehand, Hell’s Angels and all? Or that the trash talk that we were forced to listen to was “programmed” from the outset and these ladies were willing participants?

    I know I have questioned a lot of the scenes that were presented as having rather an artificial flavor, but this proposed sit down is a slap in the face to the audience at large. Let’s hope that this is just a rumor because it would be totally unfair.

    • Quincy IL says:

      A sit down didn’t resolve anything because Ashley is being sued in civil court as of last month.

  68. boston02127 says:

    @Laura—I wonder why greasy Teresie didn’t allow anyone to take pictures? I’ve never been to a book signing, do they usually take pic’s?

    • Laura aka Just done says:

      @boston – no, everyone was taking pictures. She questioned why I wasn’t taking any…I simply told her I wasn’t a fan, therefore I didn’t want a pic.

      • boston02127 says:

        @Laura–Sorry I read it wrong. I thought Teresa wasn’t letting people take pic’s of her. I was thinking who does she think she is Oprah. I’m so glad you went. I would of loved to have gone. Did she have jewelry on? The yellow ring?

        • Laura aka Just done says:

          No…no yellow ring, she did have another ring on though, it was definitely costume. Rectangle stone, a little less than an inch long. Costume earrings, all very tacky. But hey, she wouldn’t be Teresa if she wasn’t tacky.

    Spoiler Alert –

    Abdi won Work of Art . . . . . Yeahhhhhh

    • cusi77 says:

      Erring_ what are your impressions about the three shows?

      I think Miles came short… I was expecting more from him. Abdi is a talent! Don’t you think?

      • Earring Girl says:

        Yes Miles came real short – I have always thought Miles was way overrated. His show tonight was really ODC over-drive and I could not imagine being in that room with his art too long it was way too much. Pereguinne (?) work was very good but too much and too many sub-titles within sub-titles. Abdi had me a little nervous when his objects were falling apart. I liked him from the very beginning because he was so humble, not arrogant like Miles and Pereguinne and he is only 22 years old.

        See below:

        http://news.lalate.com/2010/08/11/work-of-art-winner-is-abdi-farah/

        • Squirrels says:

          Agreed. I was delighted to see Abdi, the simple art teacher win. He had me with his three bomber men. Miles to me was nothing but a faux tortured artist. I’m just glad he didn’t cut off his ear and cry foul, “I’m a Schizophrenic.” Give it a rest and grow up young man.

          • Earring Girl says:

            Did you see Sarah Jessica Parker come out of Miles exhibit holding her head. 🙂 Miles and Pereguinne (?) really needed to edit their work way too much!

        • cusi77 says:

          Thank you Erring. I tear up, I wanted so much for him to win.

          • cusi77 says:

            I mean, Abdi. He is very talented and humble… that will take him far in this path which is to be an artist.

    • Scorpiosue1102 says:

      I really liked all three of them, but there is just something infectious about Abdi. I really like him and you can plainly see he is uber talented. I think Miles is talented, but he gets too wrapped up in his mind which becomes his downfall. Peregrine is so quirky that I like her. The two fawns picture was really gorgeous. The lighting…perfect even though the subject was sweet, but a little weird and a bit off putting.

      • Quincy IL says:

        There is something off putting about the entire carnival theme. There is the fun part and the seedy part. It was a good subject for a complicated show, but she needed to edit more. Some of the exhibits like the wax frames on the wall should have been tossed aside. I think Peregrine failed to edit in all of her pieces.

        Miles took the art from White Castle into Miles Brain again. The silk screens of the pixels is modern, but what does it really say?

        I loved Abdi from the beginning. I hope he get encouragement and becomes a great artist. He’s won a couple of significant competitions now.

        I didn’t like the finale as much as I enjoyed the challenges. I love the process of creating art: Coming up with the concept, working through problems, editing….

        Yesterday, afternoon, I painted with Simon and the artists as white noise in the background and I enjoyed it very much. I will miss the show.

  70. cusi77 says:

Also, don’t forget Kelsey Grammer’s ex or soon to be ex-wife Camille. Word has it that Kelsey’s new girlfriend is also pregnant. I don’t know if they are still filming, but that’s a whole bunch of drama right there.

    • Squirrels says:

      Holy Bat Shit Batman! As if this franchise needs more bullshit? WTH are Hilton’s doing a reality show for, ratings, self confidence, swag ala Jill Zaaaarrriin? There has to be one hell of a weekly paycheck involved, for we all know what happens with each and every link to the franchise. Promise the world of woo hoo, lets see these rich women in action. Then BAM, let’s go for the jugular. Bravo has a knack of tapping into women who don’t have the resources to seriously threaten them lawsuit wise.

      I HATE ANDY COHEN, the weasel of the decade.

        Kelly needs to get laid ASAP. She may need to leave New York to do this. I betcha there are pictures of her in all the men’s bathrooms in NY with WARNING labels that read:

        “Chick with Dick”

        “Real Life Single White Female” (Jennifer Jason Leigh pales in comparison to Kelly “Kill” Bensimon.)

        “This Attraction IS Fatal”

        “If you ask her for a blowjob she sits in front of the mirror waiting for a blowout”

        “Sexually Anorexic”

        “Hates to “69” because it sounds too much like 1979 and she doesn’t want to be free to be you and me.”

        “Has-no-feelings-or-emotions-below-the-waist”

        “Tease who can’t please”

    I think this checking on, following & responding to Kelly’s tweets only feeds her perception of being a Fashion and Health Icon.

    What if we all stopped?? She probably gets paid for tweeting about name brands. If she has fewer followers and interactions her sponsors will notice.

    Boycott @Kiklet!!

    • But if I don’t make fun of Kelly’s tweets what will I do on twitter all day?

      Jelly clearly sold her “soul to the company store.” Golly gee. She attempts to make women who have great ideas and a clear sense of morality, of substance, you know what I mean…. us, look like hating, nothing better to do, sexually frustrated has beens, and lets face it, no one on this planet will change her delusional, narcissistic, personality. (Dang, what a long sentence). At this point? I blame her totally amazing, best in the universe EX… I REPEAT EX husband. Get those girls out of there. Are you fucking blind or just as narcissistic as she? You both live in a world of denial. Giles… I’m talking to you. Skelly? There is very little hope for you. Your world is mired in I’m all that. Narcissism never gets better unless you make the effort.

      Sad part is, when you are too old to fake the smile, too old to gain relief via plastic surgery on your already sagging thigh skin, you will be left with nothing, but your own memories where you were a somebody. Don’t ever underestimate the power of TV. Here today, poof tomorrow.

      • Squirrels says:

        Oh, and while I’m at it? To those who coddle her delusions, be you paid to do so or not, Think about the harm you are inflicting. This woman needs serious help. If you are hired help and ignore it, I’ll assume it’s all about a paycheck. If you really care for this woman? Build a backbone. Do what is right. Do it for the children. They deserve the best mother they can get. Kelly is not fitting that bill. Her constant tweeting about her charitable self is evidence enough. Narcissism reigns in this woman’s world. I for one find it outrageous no one in her circle has stepped up to the plate. I have no clout. You do. Shame on all of you.

  75. TrueLifeDiva says:

    I wish Kelly would get off of Bethenny’s bra strap already! Her jealousy is consuming her. Sometimes you can’t get what you want. Anybody else remember her final blog from S2? “Wait until you see what I have in store next season. Then you’ll REALLY wish I had my own show!” Not direct quote but almost verbatim. It is KILLING her that Bethenny is having it all and is popular.

    Out of curiosity, I did a little research on Juicy’s ride home the night of the accident.
    I google-mapped the route from NYC (the restaurant), to 44 Jacksonville Road (the accident), to his house (Indian Hill Road). I used the Lincoln Tunnel as a crossing point out of Manhattan, but also tried it with the GW Bridge and it didn’t matter.
    If Google Maps can be believed, there is no way he was driving home from the restaurant. Or NYC for that matter. He was either coming from an entirely different direction than New York, or he was heading somewhere else. Hope this link works.
    A is NYC
    B is scene of the accident
    C is Theresa’s house
