I Hate Jill Zarin Kelly’s Summer Vacation August 15, 2010

I Hate Jill Zarin                   Kelly Bensimon’s Summer Vacation      August 14, 2010

What has Kelly been up to since she’s not been filming or viewing her show on Bravo, The Real Housewives of New York? 

Kelly isn’t the typical housewife, in fact, she’s not a wife and she has the freedom that most parents don’t, particularly single parents.  Kelly has a team of nanny’s so she doesn’t have to concern herself with her children 24/7, she can travel and basically do whatever she wants to most of the time.

During season two of The Real Housewives of New York Bethenny accused Kelly of “collecting celebrities as friends” and Kelly did spend some time this summer doing just that. 

In an interview, Kelly claimed that Brooke Burke is a really really good friend of hers. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFR50sCw5j4&NR=1

Kelly ran a marathon in Chicago with Giuliana Rancic on August 1st but in photos, Giuliana didn’t seem thrilled to have been associated with Kelly.  http://twitpic.com/2apci2

Apparently it doesn’t matter if they’re A list or D list, Kelly’s happy to be associated with any level celebrity, with Jake Pavelka.  http://twitpic.com/2ap6ir

And any old Bachelor will do…  http://twitpic.com/2an2mo

Wendy Williams  http://twitpic.com/238h0c

Gail King (Kelly says is her kind of friend?)  http://twitpic.com/22f70t

With Jill Zarin, who’s friendship she “admires”  http://twitpic.com/1z1sjr

Roxy Olin, daughter of Ken Olin and Patricia Wetting from “Brothers and Sisters”  http://twitpic.com/1yt02e

You get the idea, Kelly is constantly tweeting photos of herself with any celebrity she can get her hands on. 

I just have to add this one because when the ladies were in St. John, Kelly made a suggestion of writing down grievances and putting them into a bowl, the bowl was in the shape of a fish.  Several days after the airing of the episode, Kelly did a You-Tube video of herself in her living room/dining room area where that very same fish bowl could be seen, full of, you guessed it, Jelly beans!  I tweeted her asking if she stole that bowl from the condo in St. John and she posted this:

http://twitpic.com/1v4j90  an up-close of the fish bowl with the caption:  design with what you love

Kelly can say she received an education from Columbia, the University or the country, I really don’t care which, but she uses her adjectives and verbs wrong all the time.   Her vocabulary and grammar are atrocious!   Let’s review a few:

“Design with what you love”  I think she meant “decorate” because I don’t think she designed that fish bowl, in fact I think she stole it from the Villa in St. John!

“Wear love”.  This is a favorite of Kelly’s she says this all the time and it makes no sense whatsoever.  You can feel love, make love, be loved but you cannot wear it.

She admires herself a whole lot too, she admires her pride for her daughters and admires her friendships.  Another one she needs to look up before she keeps using it into the ground and trampling on it!

Kelly likes to tweet photographs of her in magazine articles as well, even if they’re not complimentary. 

A photo of Kelly, Luann and Jill being mean girls at the reunion in TV Guide  http://twitpic.com/1xbmwe

An article of Kelly’s horribly deformed body appeared alongside another photo of her looking completely different.  http://twitpic.com/21a0p7  Kelly didn’t change, the photos were merely taken during different activities.

Kelly tweets photos of herself with her children (God love them).  She most likely does this to either get sympathy or to combat the reports that she rarely cares for them herself.  She just began tweeting photos of her kids recently since photos of Bethenny and her baby are appearing in magazines. 

Kelly did have some issues with the nanny that she left her children with while taping in St. John for Real Housewives of New York, another reason that we can be sure Bravo didn’t force her to go.  How could anyone force a single mother to go on a trip without proper childcare?  Kelly did spend a lot of time on the phone with her children and the nanny while she was in St. John. 

Before you feel sorry for the single mom, know that a reliable source (VERY reliable) told me that Kelly has several nanny’s and that while the children’s father is not a huge presence in their lives, she has plenty of help and in fact has been traveling all summer long without her children.  (Miami, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Chicago to name a few)  Apparently the issues with the nanny have been worked out or she’s using a different one now. 

Kelly has recently been tweeting to fans and non-fans alike that they should be giving back to charity. She doesn’t realize how insulting this is to most people since she has no idea what these people already do for charity or to give back.  She doesn’t know the financial situation of people on Twitter and she has no idea how much they already give.  Whether it is money or time, I believe that most people do what they can and they certainly do not need some moron of a housewife on a reality show to tell them to do more. 

Her newest idea is that anyone who tweets anything mean to her should give $1 to charity for each tweet.  Who the hell does she think she is?   She has made herself a public figure by agreeing to do a reality show, she acts like a complete and utter MORON on the show.  She is rude to four of the favorites on the show telling them to “zip it” and calling the most popular housewife in history a “ho-bag”, she puts herself out there by tweeting non-stop and expects that everyone be nice to her?  She is allowed to be rude, name-call and lie but fans should take her advice and kiss her ass?  I can’t decide if she’s really that stupid or ridiculously naïve or both. 

Let’s go back and review Kelly’s behavior from the beginning of the season.  There wasn’t anything that made Kelly relevant on the show, she turned up at Bethenny’s Skinnygirl Margarita release party, saying that she wanted a truce.  Kelly then decides that Alex’s meeting for Brooklyn Fashion Weekend would be a good time to bring up again what happened last season.  Is being called “Madonna” really that big of an insult?  Get over it Kelly!

Kelly argued with Jill about an email that Jill sent.  Jill was jealous that Kelly had buried the hatchet with Bethenny (thanks to Ramona’s big mouth) and Kelly had to explain to Jill that she only did that to appease fans and let everyone know that she’s the bigger person who made up with Bethenny.  Idiot Jill seemed satisfied with that explanation. 

Kelly argued with Ramona at Jill’s Kodak event, shoving her nose into someone else’s business was typically not Kelly’s MO but she decided it was her place to let Ramona know that Jill was upset about Ramona’s comments.  I think that Ramona already knew that but Kelly butted in anyway and ended up arguing with Ramona. 

Although it sounds like Kelly had a lot of activity up until this point during the season, in comparison to what was happening with Jill and Bethenny, Kelly was irrelevant.  If this had happened on New Jersey or DC, maybe it would have given Kelly some attention, but with all of the confrontations and activity going on with all of the other housewives, Kelly was fading into the background.  She better do something fast!

There’s nothing like a trip to the US Virgin Islands, an opportunity to get some attention and get people talking.  Did anyone else notice that when the ladies were doing interviews for the show before the season started Ramona, who was teamed with Bethenny and Alex on the press tour, mentioned a few times that Kelly “went crazy this season”.  I didn’t think much of it because I thought maybe it was another one of those “I’m up here, you’re down here” type of moments where Kelly tries to put someone in their place.  When the other trio, Jill, Luann and Kelly would do interviews, Kelly blew off questions about Ramona’s statement saying, “it was nothing”.  Who knew it was going to be so outrageous? 

So did Kelly orchestrate this entire St. John’s fiasco?  I don’t think so, but I do think that she planned something for that trip.  Kelly said herself at the reunion, “why would I want to go with these ladies?”

Why indeed?   Air time, a way to make yourself relevant and ensure that you’re on the show next season.  We learned that both Jill and Luann warned Kelly against going, we know that Kelly had an issue with her children’s caretaker, we know that Kelly had no real ties to these four women that she was traveling with and in fact hated Bethenny and Ramona.  Ramona being the guest of honor of the trip, there was absolutely no reason why Kelly should have gone. 

Kelly’s insistence that she was forced to go aside, because no one believes it, she only went because she knew that this trip was going to be major air time.  Kelly knew that this trip was going to be one of the featured events on the show and she could not miss being a part of it no matter what she had to endure to be there.  Kelly also knew that this was her opportunity to make a scene and get people talking. 

We learned about Kelly’s inability to relate to other people’s feelings, we learned that she does not like it when people talk about people that she cares about (Jill Zarin), we learned that when Kelly feels uncomfortable with the topic of a conversation, rather than staying out of it and keeping her mouth shut, she interrupts other people forcing them to change the subject. 

Who remembers at the reunion when Kelly asked Alex, “Do you really care what Ramona is feeling?”  I truly think that she believes that Alex doesn’t care what Ramona is feeling, another clue that Kelly doesn’t have any real friends, especially no real girl friends.  That is what we girls do, right?  We talk about our feelings.  This made me think about the people who Kelly calls “friends”.  Hypothetic situation:  Kelly says that Giuliana Rancic is her “friend”.  We know from Giuliana and Bill’s show that they are having some issues conceiving a baby.  Do you think that if Giuliana tried to talk to Kelly about this, Kelly would be sympathetic to Giuliana’s feelings?   Do you think that Kelly would say, “life is so friggin short, you’re young and beautiful and you’re wearing a beautiful Zac Posen dress, feelings are so 1979 so you should just get over it and move on!”? 

Luckily Giuliana Rancic has real friends and family that have more sense and care about her enough to help her through any life issues that she has and Kelly isn’t a real friend anyway but I think you all get my point. 

What about Kelly’s children?  As they go through life, they will have some “feelings” and heartbreaks, they’ll have boy issues and girlfriend arguments, disappointments and difficulties.  What do you suppose Kelly will say to them?  “Why would you ever cry about boys?”   There are times when a girl needs their mom, is Kelly the type of mom who these kids can go to when they need loving support and a shoulder to cry on? 

On St. John, Kelly had a breakdown of some kind, there is no doubt in my mind.  After seeing what Bravo aired and hearing the stories that we heard from the other Housewives that were there, we know that this was not a “break-through” and it was not “systematic bullying”.  Kelly lost her mind, whether she had been taking drugs, drinking some type of alcohol that she is not used to or has a real mental problem, this was not the result of Kelly being bullied. 

I truly believe that if Alex, Bethenny and Ramona had been harassing Kelly in any way, Sonja would have stepped in and tried to put a stop to it.  Sonja reiterated that Bethenny was all about relaxing in the sun and cooking.  Ramona even told us that Bethenny was the calmest she’d ever seen her.  Bethenny was pregnant, engaged and had just lost her father.  I cannot see her going out of her way to be mean to Kelly.  I also cannot see Alex or Ramona attacking Kelly.  Ramona was technically the “hostess” and we learned that Ramona made a promise to Kelly in advance that she’d have her back if anyone was mean to Kelly.  We also know that it was the first trip Alex had taken without her family and was looking forward to relaxing, besides that I don’t think it is in Alex’s DNA to be the aggressor.  Sonja was the one who, as she said, “had no irons in the fire”.  She had no reason to lie when she told us that she honestly did not believe that anyone bullied Kelly.

When Kelly opened the door to her room and found the gift bag of from Bethenny, I think that what actually went on in Kelly’s head was that Bethenny was more successful in business, Bethenny was about to get married and have a baby, Bethenny was getting her own show on Bravo and her archrival, Bethenny was basically getting everything that Kelly wanted for herself.  That is what caused Kelly to break down and cry hysterically on her bed.  That is what caused Kelly to continually attack Bethenny’s profession.  Kelly knew where it would cut deepest and she certainly couldn’t attack Bethenny’s pregnancy, engagement or father’s death.  Kelly went for the one thing she could attack and what Bethenny is most proud of professionally, her chef title. 

Jealousy.  Kelly is so jealous of Bethenny that is evident in everything that she does.  We’ve watched Kelly all summer long emulate Bethenny.  Bethenny has two best-selling books about cooking and eating right.  Kelly starts to post photos on Twitter of meals that she has made and low calorie desserts that she’s prepared (remember the horrible looking pie?)  Kelly makes a You-Tube video of her diet for a week.   Bethenny releases a Yoga DVD and Kelly prepares a You-Tube video of herself doing yoga.  Experts will say that both the diet and the yoga were not only inaccurate, but potentially dangerous ways to eat and to do yoga.  I don’t suppose Kelly consulted with experts or doctors before releasing these videos?  Kelly, in her haste to copy Bethenny has become reckless and irresponsible. 

Bethenny is on the cover of People magazine with her new baby.  Suddenly Kelly is posting photographs on Twitter of herself with her children, something that she very rarely did in the past.  Her children were always off limits and she is quoted as saying that she wants to maintain their privacy as much as possible.  Apparently, now it is ok for her to slap the kids photos all over the internet. 

Another clue that Kelly is jealous of Bethenny is that Kelly is quoted as saying the exact opposite, Kelly says that Bethenny wants to be her….Bethenny wants to wear the clothes she wears, the jewelry, the make up, the hair, Bethenny wants to go to all of the parties that Kelly goes to, according to Kelly. 

In fact, of the many things that we’ve learned about Bethenny, it is that she does not enjoy being around a lot of people, she would much rather be home with her family and pre-Jason, with her dog, Cookie.  Bethenny has her own style, her own look which is more classic and certainly would not suit the “hobo” style that Kelly sports.  I can say with almost 100% certainty that Bethenny is not jealous of Kelly whatsoever! 

Even as I type this, Kelly tweeted this:

@Kikilet  On my way to montauk for some fun. Maybe mini golf

Montauk, you may recall is where Bethenny spends her vacations and where the finale of her show was filmed.   It also happens to be where Bethenny is right now.

Do you suppose she is now stalking Bethenny?  It wouldn’t surprise me, but even scarier than that tweet is this one:

@Kikilet  Just saw a baby boy on the beach. I want a little baby boy. First I need the right man, no opportunists need apply

That woman raising a baby boy (or girl) would be criminal!  I doubt that we have to worry about that, however, she’s 42 years old and has no man in her life, continues to act like a complete insane, batshit crazy moron.  I cannot imagine any man could tolerate her, that is if she would find someone to meet her ridiculous standards, he must be “someone big” like her ex-husband, he has to not be Mr. Right Now and he needs to be Batman to her Robin.  That guy doesn’t exist, at least I hope he doesn’t because we don’t want Kelly to multiply anymore!   Oh right, and the guy cannot be an “opportunist” because it would be one hell of an opportunity to meet, fall in love with and marry Kelly Killoren Besimon.   Augh!

Until Next Time…..

    How could Jill’s book be in its second printing? Do you believe her?

    • LynnNChicago says:

      It really depends on how many were printed the first time. If reports are correct and she has sold 10,000 copies and that is all they printed to begin with, it is possible. That isn’t saying much though, 10k isn’t a lot since the book has been out and she’s been promoting the hell out of it for months!

      Personally, I think anyone who was going to buy it by now, had bought the stupid thing, time to hang up the publicity.

      • TLM says:

        I really thought I was the first one to bring up the glass fish and its appearance on KKB’s home video. Was I a latecomer? I really thought I was the first to notice that and post links to the video. At the time, no one seemed to think it was funny but me.

  2. LynnNChicago says:

    Boston – Please send all our love to your mom for her birthday and for a speedy recovery! You are every mother’s DREAM daughter!!!

    Laura – Dina’s promise was to block anyone who RT my tweets to her, so that she would see them. She seems to think that I ask people to RT things to her because she’s got me blocked. The truth is, she searches my tweets anyway or how would she continue to know what I’m saying. But I would never ask anyone to RT my tweets to someone that has blocked me, its tacky. (Twitter protocol and all LOL)

    That said, if you tweeted what you wanted to …she’d probably block ya anway LOL

    • Laura aka Just done says:

      You’re probably right – she would’ve blcked me with that comment. I’ll wait for the next one. Did u see what I tweeted to KKB about my son? I got a response when I told her that babies weren’t accessories and to go buy a handbag. She didn’t respond to the tweet about my son’s charitable work, though. She’s a bag of wind.

  3. boston02127 says:

    Excellent blog Lynn. Thank you. I hope Kelly reads it.

    • MickeyMouth says:

      Happy Birthday to your MOM. Tell her she has a great kid!

    • kats2 says:

      Boston – I’m so happy you had a great day with your Mom.
      Happy B-Day to her! (my bro’s b-day today too, I feel surrounded by Leo’s I love it!) You are really an amazing daughter, you both are very lucky to have each other.

  4. anniieee says:

    Excellent blog as usual Lynn. You hit Kelly squarely in the head with the hammer. Oh wait.. Isn’t it … You hit the nail on the head? Forgive my dummyisness or is it ignorianess? Anyway, you pegged it. Kelly is insanely (insane) jealous of B and is doing anything and everything for attention. Her IQ is just above 70 and she relates and acts like a 13 year old halfway thru the first year of middle school. I do feel so sorry for the two daughters–an absent father and a crazy mother. Where are the grandparents..oh wait…they raised Kelly…NOT a good idea. Keep of the good work. It is such a pleasure to read these blogs and all the insight everyone put into them.

    @Boston–sent you a note on the last blog..Happy Birthday to your Mother, God bless you both. You really are an angel and will have many many jewels in that crown. You make my heart beat with pride for all you do and my eyes leak. Your mother must be an amazing lady to have raised such a wonderful daughter!!

  5. MickeyMouth says:

    This blog may be more honesty than Kelly can handle.

    • Laura aka Just done says:

      I was thinking the same thing Mickey….news reports of a Nervous Breakthrough in Montauk will be all over the news tonight!

      • anniieee says:

        Oh wow and we know she will read it… oh wait… Have someone read it to her and explain…as comprehension is not high on her list of skills.

      • boston02127 says:

        She seems like the type that could snap. Although sometimes I think she’s dumb as a fox.

        PS—-Thank you everyone for your well wishes for my mother.

    • Bonnie says:

      Zip It, Al Sharpton!

  6. lovebeth says:

    Geez, I remember Bethenney said she just filled Nate Berkus show now Jill tweeted him “can’t wait for the new show!” Jesus!

  7. jezzibel says:

    I can’t help feeling we are giving her the attention she craves..by bringing up her crazy antics on twitter. She might try and show it to Bravo bosses that she is somewhat relevent because of it. She is getting attention for the craziness.

  10. boston02127 says:

    I’m going to watch BB. It’s on late tonight due to golf. Lynn, I just wanted to say thanks for taking the time out of your days to write such great blogs. I love them. This place has given me such good company for a long time. You have brought together such a kind & nice group of people. I appreciate you Lynn. Thank you.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      Boston, it really is my pleasure, I enjoy it as much as you do and I really appreciate all of you who take time out of your schedules to read and comment. You’re so right, it is an amazing, amazing group we have here! Amazing Amazing! 🙂

  11. LynnNChicago says:

    Thanks again to @sassNSauceBBC for this juicy tidbit:

  12. BambiBaby22 says:

    I am still confused regarding the Giudice’s marble and onyx tacky “mansion”. Is it up for sale? Will they be able to keep it after the bankruptcy? If so, how can they live there if all the furniture was sold at auction? Are Juicy and Tree still in possible legal trouble due to hiding assets? There are so many daily updates, I am having a hard time keeping it straight!

  13. OneMoreinBoston says:

    I wish I wrote this:

    “I’m pretty sure Kelly is a transformer vehicle that got stuck in that robotic form and is sucking down gummi bears hoping they will dissolve into magic fuel so she can turn back into a 1979 Chevy.”

    I’m not that clever-sigh-it’s from a commenter named Meercat over on RT

  14. Abby Someone says:

    This blog made my day! Since Bravo, as much as I like that network, never offers any justice when it comes to this lune, the only satisfaction I get from having to watch her antics is commiserating with others who can’t stand her.

    I have been saying for a long time that she cannot be with those kids much. She is out every single night. Don’t take my word for it, look at the photo pages. She goes to the opening of a door, YET, she has the unmitigated gaul to tell other people how to parent! Remember she told Ramona her daughter should not take a cab alone? She told Sonja “You need to tell your daughter mommy is lazy.” If I were Sonja I would have told her flat out that children learn from example and she needs to worry about her OWN behavior. When you can’t friggin sit still for 5 minutes you are in no position to tell others who they should be.

    Kiki is so worried about appearances yet she wears a dress that barely covers her unmentionables, with a long feather earring that looks like she snagged herself on a Macaw! She calls herself a tastmaker?! She’s 42, wearing clothes Britney Spears donated to Goodwill 10 years ago.

    Kiki has a transparent desire to be the guru of every career? She is throwing a bunch of shite against the wall and seeing what sticks. She is an author, mother, model, actress, fitness guru, equestrian, baker and candle stick maker, yet she has NO focus and NO talent. She hates Bethenny for this very reason. Did you see kiki’s youtube video on “Kellade”? I called it “Lame-onade” and she blocked me. I’m honored. I guess I’ll give my 1 dollar to Peta so they can combat people like kiki who support inhumane treatmeant of animals.

    Despite her nonsensical comments, Kelly is not as dumb as she seems. If you asked her what means the most to her, she will say being a mom. She knows at least that much about appearances. But I have a message for kiki. We are what we do, not what we say. The pictures don’t lie. The video footage of you attacking people then claiming you were systematically bullied speak for themselves. You aren’t fooling anyone with your systematic bull-shit. What a sad woman you are. Is that mean? I guess I’ll give my 2nd charity dollar to your daughters, because I really feel for orphans.

    • vilzvet says:

      Heheh, “baker and candle stick maker”!!! OMG all these comments today are right on and hilarious. Glad Kelly has read this, and someone should also tweet this to Bethenny, if anything to alert her that Kel is in the area! BTW my son is heading out there tomorrow to go camping, I’m going to ask him to look around for her in town. I’ll tell him to look for a tall crispy stringpole.

      • Abby Someone says:

        lol vilzvet, He can leave a trail of gummi bears and wait for her to come cartwheeling by.

    • boston02127 says:

      @Abby Someone—high 5 to you! great post.

    • Need a Hobby says:

      I read an article recently, where I think it quoted from another article Lizzie Grubman’s father who said for years Kiki kept asking him how to get famous.

      That’s what it’s all about for Kiki.

      • Abby Someone says:

        That makes a lot of sense. That explains why she is always so proud of divorcing the right person. I laugh when she brags about her ex like the ex part is of no consequence. ‘Look how famous and successful the guy is who would rather chew glass than spend another minute of his life with me. Yeah he is very sought after in his career.’

    • Zoey says:

      Good stuff! Speaking of Peta, does anyone know if they had any public comment or reaction to Kelly’s comments about them? While I wouldn’t want her to get more publicity. or worse run off on a tangent with a new cause and more Utube videos, I would love for them to comment and set her straight about her crazy remarks regarding what they stand for.

  15. Gypsy862 says:

    Kelly just tweeted: @lynnNchicago I am so flattered than any nonpress person would take the time to blog about “reality”. $1 for meantweets. Get mean, give
    less than 20 seconds ago via Twitter for BlackBerry®

    She sure keeps close tabs on you, Lynn!

    • LynnNChicago says:

      She’s “so flattered” Thats her standard comeback when someone has told the truth about her but it is less than flattering.

      • Gypsy862 says:

        I loved your twitter comeback telling her to come up with $$ for her mean comments to Bethenny…ho’bag and cook.

      • Zoey says:

        Maybe she doesn’t know what flattered means. Geez, she just makes no sense.
        So she ignores the truth and any constructive criticism. What DOES push her buttons? Besides the green devil.

    • Abby Someone says:

      Who uses the term “non-press person”? Is Kiki a “press person”?
      You know why we have press? To get to people like US. Once again Kelly has a warped perception of “fame.” She is not even smart enough to get being a snob right. But then again this is the woman who said RH’s should have more A listers. As if her BFF Gwyneth is going to join the cast any time soon and have a nailpolish and pinot party.

      Well, I for one am flattered that kiki took time away from her busy schedule of posing to enlighten us. By the way, I calculated the minutes of my life that I wont get back from watching kiki on RH and it seems she owes me 1.2 million dollars. I will donate it to her kids, since, did I mention, I really do care a lot about orphans.

    • Abby Someone says:

      and we are amused that a non-sane person like kiki thinks she is clever

  16. Delia says:

    Krazy batshit Kelly reads this blog. She just tweeted this. LMAO!!

    @lynnNchicago I am so flattered than any nonpress person would take the time to blog about “reality”. $1 for meantweets. Get mean, give

  17. Sha2000 says:

    I think I remember seeing that fish bowl in Kelly’s apartment, before the St. John episode; besides that it’s a fairly common piece of home decor (just mentioning it to be fair).

    …now if you had seen a life size statue of a horse in the VI’s…. : )

  18. Adgirl says:

    @ jezzibel – I couldn’t agree with you more. The fastest method of ridding ourselves of KKB is to ignore her into oblivion!! If we don’t write about her, read her twitters or comment about them she will lose her power to insert herself into our (entertainment) lives.
    I understand Lynn posting about her it because that is part of her web/blog environment.

    I have to admit it can be very fun to snark on Kelly – but I would prefer a new housewive on NY. What if someone just as fun as Sonja is out there??
    If Bravo thinks we are bored with KKB because we don’t comment about her Bravo will drop her.

    Personally, I would feel like an idiot if I ever engaged in a twitter convo with her. She is dumb and has no sense of humor. Who is she to take up my precious time?

    I say slay the beast by ignoring her, especially on twitter.

    • Need a Hobby says:

      Silly. She won’t go away. She will not be ignored.

      Hide your bunnies, folks.

      • Zoey says:

        I had to unfollow her on Twitter just so she wouldn’t have an extra follower. So silly me, I go to her page to read her crazy crap once in a while.
        I say everyone unfollow her! She’ll miss our ecosystem.

  19. Delia says:

    Oh and BY THE WAY, GREAT BLOG LYNN as usual!

    You nailed it, hit it out of the park, scored on for the Gipper….(insert any like analogy here)

    I just love reading your blogs, they just make sense of all those things that are running through my mind. I think Kelly knows she is crazy, she is just trying desperately to hide it from others, but when she is alone, with her thoughts in the dark, she knows that they are coming to take her away haha, hehe, hoho…to the funny farm, where life is beautiful all the time….

    By the way Kelly (I know you are reading this ;-), I gave at the office, so I am afraid you wont be seeing any $$ from me.

      She’s here… In the time that I took to read the comments on this page, Kelly tweeted about Lynn… She’s lurking fellow posters…. Come out, come out, where ever you are….

    Teresa’s tweet….Hi Tweet♥s! Back from LBI. Here’s a pic of Milania wearing my friend’s glasses. She cracks me up that kid~ http://www.twitpic.com/2f5mmp

    I soooo badly wanted to tweet back, “Why is Milania wearing your friend’s glasses, did she have to put her own glasses in a box marked ‘AUCTION’ ?”

  22. Quincy IL says:

    I would like to say this to Kelly Bensimon. Who are you to tell anyone that they should give one dollar to charity? We aren’t 4th graders who write complaints that you can throw away. You are absolutely crazy if you think you have the right to tell us that you are up there and we are down here.

  23. Need a Hobby says:

    Since Kelly noted that she wants a baby boy and is still searching for Mr. Right, on the previous blog I prepared a personals ad for Kelly to assist her in her search for a potential baby daddy. If I may be so bold as to repost:

    “Sperm donor wanted for a fabulously authentic relationship of indeterminate duration. Must play pool, eat chicken wings and beer, and also have season tickets to the Met (opera, not baseball). Must like cartwheels and unicorns. Must never discuss feelings, Marlo Thomas, or anything that could possibly be related to the year 1979. Fast reflexes and the ability to dodge a punch are desirable.”

  24. Suebhoney says:

    Hello Lynn and all! I have been reading but still in the middle of this house remodel…so busy! Love the blog, Lynn!

    I remember when the whole arrest / boyfriend thing happened with Kelly and I totally dismissed it as some weird celebrity misunderstanding thing…but having watched KooKoo Kelly in action this past season and her post season antics makes me think there is way more to this story and maybe she was charged justifiably (wasn’t she charged with assault or something?).

    I think it’s great that KooKoo Kelly is out and away from her children 85% of of the time…hopefully the nanny that is charged with their care has half a brain and lots of love to give those girls. That may be their best shot at having someone normal in their life. I encourage KooKoo Kelly to continue chasing the nondescript career of the week she is seeking and the “fame” she is looking for…could be the very best thing for those girls in the end.

    By the way…did you see Patti Stanger broke off her engagement to Andy because apparently doesn’t want to have children?! Ha! I believe she’s 49 and he’s 51 so this should not have been some huge shocker. Sorry to any of you who might be fans of this trainwreck…I certainly am not.

    • Delia says:

      I personally cant stand Millionaire Matchmaker. She is rude, crude and she looks like a man.

      • Suebhoney says:

        She is rude…but that’s not what I don’t like about her. I find her totally non credible. How can she claim to be some awesome match maker and not be “matched” with someone herself? It’s like having an accountant that bounces checks…

    • Need a Hobby says:

      The misunderstanding between Kiki and her former SO was that when she threw a punch, he was supposed to duck. But he didn’t. Or at least not in time.

      She was charged and plead out to lesser charges IIRC. Sentenced to community service and as long as she stayed out of trouble for a year, the charges would be dropped and disappear from her record. Which is how she can claim that nothing came of the arrest, although she admitted to performing community service. She made it sound just like it was just another “platform” for her to be charitable.

      Re P Stanger: perhaps her SO decided he was tired of playing her Steadman. (Insert here a big Kathy Griffin “allegedly.”)

      • Suebhoney says:

        lmao…he was supposed to duck?! Seriously! Okay…I’m imagining a murder suspect in front of the judge now…

        “But judge…when I shot him, he was supposed to move out of the way so the bullet didn’t actually hit him therefore, I’m not guilty”!

        I think she needs to Meriam Webster the word charitable amongst all the other words she actually needs to look up before she decides to use them. I can’t look at any of her actions and call them “charitable”. Everything she does is self serving and that in itself makes it not charitable. Guess she learned that from her great pal Jill.

        After watching and loving BGM?, I have decided that I absolutely cannot watch another season of any RH shows. The DC one (only watched the 1st episode) is absolutely ridiculous but not nearly as ridiculous as the NJ morons. I shouldn’t really say that…I do like Caroline for the most part and think her heart is in the right place for her family. And she’s the only one out of the other morons who was smart enough to stay away from Dirty D this season.

        But on the other hand, if I don’t watch, this blog would become meaningless for me and I really like all of you! Would be silly to not watch, continue to read the blog and have no idea what anyone is talking about! lol

        • Need a Hobby says:

          I haven’t been watching New Jersey or DC and I still find this blog informative and entertaining. I can usually figure out what happened on the shows by reading the blog, comments and the links people post. They watch so I don’t have to. LOL.

    • Katie says:

      The best part about that fiasco is that Kelly interpreted the court ordered community service as a dismissal of the charges. She proudly boasted that “justice was served.” Note
      to Kelly: just because you did not end up in the clink, does not imply innocence.

  25. moneycanbuyyouass says:

    Good God Kelly, the thought of you bearing another child and letting a team of nannies raise it while you flit like a hummingbird from one sugary event to another! Just raise the two children you have and be thankful for them.

    I have been reading all your posts, lurking I guess. I hate that word as it makes me sound like a flasher! I heart you all, especially Olivia as you say it so eloquently.

    And to you Boston, my best to you and your mother. Daughters are a blessing, as I am sure she is very much aware. So why did I get stuck with all boys? Waaagh I want a baby girl! But people my age are having grandchildren and my sons aren’t ready for that responsibility, so maybe I’ll get another dog – a girl this time!

    • Quincy IL says:

      Would Kelly have the money for a nanny for a new baby? Giles won’t pay for that baby’s care. There’s no way that he would have another child with Kelly.

    • Quincy IL says:

      I followed the artists from “Work of Art.” I saw the photos of Miles and Ryan at some party. I also read that Jacki Santos wanted to tell the public about the process, but Bravo stopped her. Does anyone here know of a site like this one that discussed that show with threads following the blog?

      • kats2 says:

        Wait a minute, you follow or you followed (as in saw them some where and followed them)?

        I really like them too, I have not found a site or blog like this but would love it. I plan to keep track of Miles and Abdi.

        And by chance if you actually followed them and met them I would love to hear the details.

        • Quincy IL says:

          “Folowed” in the sense that I read their facebooks and looked at articles about their art and previous awards. If I follow anyone it would be squirrels. I just love squirrels and her posts. LOL…

  26. Quincy IL says:

    I noticed that Jill Zarin wrote some comments on the DC women not getting along and that was making it hard to watch the series. You have to be kidding, Jill.

    • moneycanbuyyouass says:

      Jill has her tinfoil hat on, trying to deflect the negative comments about her!

    • Jules says:

      Yeah, I know, Jill said the Lynda was mean spirited, and whiney. I wanted to post a comment to her wall that said look in the mirror, but of course she has already blocked me.

  27. Quincy IL says:

    About Kelly being 42 and trying to get pregnant. I think it would be irresponsible and perhaps impossible. Kelly’s body fat is probably too low for menstruation. She’s only eating 750 calories and exercising those few calories away with exercise bulemia. I wonder if she could be fertile with her abuse of her body with running and all of that alcohol that she claims to drink in the form of beer/patron. I would not know these things, but in her tweets Kelly has shared all of this information with the public. Kelly’s eggs would also be 43 years old as the eggs are formed when the baby/Kelly was in her mother’s womb.

    I don’t think we have to worry about Kelly having another child without the help of doctors.

    • KimB says:

      She probably had those eggs replaced with jellybeans years ago! Yet I am less disturbed knowing that nannies are raising her children. Her ex-fabulous husband has to be mortified that she has this attention on his children. I am still puzzled why he has yet to make a statement on her mental stability.

    • Kokuanani says:

      Well, I had my two kids when I was 42 and 44.

      This is because a) I didn’t meet their father until I was 35; and b) our first child, who was born when I was 36, died at age 3. We tried for the next years [without “medical assistance”] to get pregnant again. We did, but suffered 4 miscarriages. So when these two kids came along, we were delighted.

      The younger just graduated from college; the older did so two years ago. Both are great kids.

      • moneycanbuyyouass says:

        This is wonderful news Kokuanani! Yes it can happen and I am happy that it happened for you and your husband. Greatly saddened by the loss of your first child. This should happen to no one.

        Statistics, however are not on Kelly’s side and her lifestyle would make you question whether she is in the best health to conceive. Of course she could turn to “medical assistance” for donor eggs and sperm, along with in vitro and any combination thereof. But hey, Kelly is form the midwest and WE just don’t do it like that!

  28. Scorpiosue1102 says:

    Here’s my thing….you give what you can give and do what you can do. My nephew just went into remission after a 4 yr. battle with leukemia (he was diagnosed at 7 mos.). There have been fundraisers for my sister-in-laws family which I have given to. I’ve also made many dinners for her and her family and sometimes it’s just listening and being there for someone. I do what I, MYSELF, can do or can afford to do. I don’t have a ton of money, but I sure can whip up a tasty meal for her family of 6. Point is that you do what you can and even the simplest of gestures mean so much. Any little bit helps and you do not have to shout from the rooftops what you do.

    Lynn tweeted that she volunteers at Children’s Memorial in Chicago. That is the exact hospital my nephew spent many days at whether inpatient or in their outpatient clinic. It’s is a wonderful facility and the fact that people, like Lynn, give their time there, welll…kudos. I am so thankful because people like Lynn made the people in my family’s time there a little bit easier.

    • Quincy IL says:

      Children’s is a great hospital. I worked at Grant and when kids at
      Children’s had infections, we would get them trying to keep the staph/strep from infecting other sick kids at Children’s.

    • kats2 says:

      Scorpiosue1102 – This is going to make me cry. But your nephew is in remission now, right? I had a cousin who had the same thing and it’s going on 10 years and counting. I loved your post, we all need to do more and keep positive thoughts and prayers going. Plus do whatever we can.

    • Abby Someone says:

      oh wow, I was at that hospital a couple of years ago with the Lollipop Organization. Maybe we met. 🙂

    • Scorpiosue1102 says:

      This is why tweets like Kelly bother me. Anyone can say something, but doing something as simple as posting a link (which she will not or does not do) or do something. Give me a true star like Jennifer Garner who does TRUE charity work. Heck, even Lindsay Lohan does charity work.

      My problem is that it’s all words with Kelly. “Systematic bullying” was such a big deal for KKB yet now we hear nothing. Running the half marathon in Chicago….is it a big deal for a runner who likes to travel to go to the biggest city close to her hometown to do a half marathon? I don’t know. Kelly could have asked all of her followers to sponsor her and she’ll match it, etc. Soooo much she could do.

  29. ramonacoaster says:

    I used to work with this woman in a department store during my college days. She was crazy. I don’t know what mental illness she had but you could definitely tell by looking at her that something was not quite right. The lights were on but no one was home. She was functioning but there was no soul or personality in her eyes. She was fine if you were polite and didn’t engage in too much conversation with her. She had some altercations with some customers. Her last altercation resulted in her getting fired. Some customer was harassing her and the argument elevated until a manager intervened.

    Kelly reminds me of this woman. I feel bad for her and I feel bad for Kelly. I don’t think anyone chooses to be this way. I especially feel bad for her daughters growing up with a crazy mom. But what should Kelly do? Go on meds? Meds help but in the long term, it trashes your kidneys. No one can reason with Kelly. We can only control our own behavior and I personally feel that it’s best to be polite and not engage in conversation with her. Just my opinion.

    • Jenni says:

      Well said!

    • cusi77 says:

      Ramonacoaster_ I agree with you 100%.

    • Katie says:

      I disagree that Kelly could not benefit
      from both medication and psychiatric help. Any medication including OTC can damage the kidneys and liver. The number one cause of acute liver failure is acetaminophen. Discouraging Kelly from taking medication to help regulate
      her biochemistry because of the possibility of damage is short sighted. In terms of simply ignoring her, that is appropriate for the general public. But what about her kids? Ignoring her will not cure her.

    • klmh says:

      Excellent post. I agree 100% as well.
      I do not know if she could benefit from therapy or medication, but making fun and snarking about the mentally challenged isn’t right in any regard, and I wont demean myself by doing it, but honestly I laugh at some of the snark here. Bad me…:(

      • Katie says:

        Kelly is her own worst enemy. I don’t think she is a victim and she is quite antagonistic. I don’t think ignoring her problem will benefit her, her kids, or the sanity of those who listen to her nonsensical rants. I suspect the people close to her have ignored this problem all of her life. Kelly is a moron, but she also has deeper issues.

        • klmh says:

          We can certainly agree to disagree, but Kelly has, as you mentioned, some problems. You described her as a moron with deep issues and my comment to that is, why would another person make fun of and demean another with issues that are difficult at best or impossible to fix.I have yet to hear her complete a thought or finish a cohesive sentence.
          I have lived with mental problems within my family and its not a piece of cake. I feel her family has probably tried to help, but unless a family member can prove she is a danger to herself or others, there is nothing you can do to get help for your loved one if they don’t want it. I agree, Kelly is her own worst enemy and I just hope and pray she will accept some professional help, but sometimes some things can’t be fixed and making fun of someone like that is just cruel and insensitive. And I feel until you’ve walked in this family’s shoes, you might not want to judge their involvement in this situation.

  30. I really hope Kelly isn’t invited back to the show.

    All her pathetic attempts to try and stay relevant during the off season do much more harm than good. At best Kelly is the type of person who can only be tolerated in small doses and all the tweeting and self promotion make her over exposed.

    If they do bring her back, I think I will only be able to watch it on DVR and fast forward any scene with Kelly. I tried to watch that video you posted and only got through about 3 minutes before little explosions of intolerance started to go off in my head. I had the same reaction when I saw a minute of Snooki on the Jersey shore (although I pretty much find that whole cast insufferable) .

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      When Kelly first came on the show I didn’t watch her – another built in commercial break – because she was vapidly boring and bizarrely dressed. Last season she got mean and it bothered me when she constantly went after Bethenny – even Bethenny couldn’t keep the look of amazement off her face regarding the lunatic’s actions and words. After the breakdown/through and out the other side in SJVI I am definately not interested in watching Kelly do anything or say anything!

  31. Anitabee says:

    OMG!

    Kelly Killorian Bensimon IS FULL ON SYSTEMATIC BULLYING Lynn on her Twitter.

    Kelly — GO TO SLEEP! GO TO SLEEP! YOU’RE CRAZY! AND BORING! AND IRRELEVANT!

    and honestly Kelly, you never have been nor will ever be “all that”.

    It’s obvious that Kelly is reading (or someone is reading to her) this blog. I say we give her our best advice as she can’t stop tweeting about Lynn and this site.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Yesterday had to be pretty tough for her if she read this blog. Hopefully she will retreat back to her little wonderland and find something else to capture her attention.

  32. Wall St Man says:

    Zip it Kelly or we will skin u & wear u as a coat !

  33. jezzibel says:

    How exactly is the meantweets for charity supposed to work..who collects the money..who keeps track of the money…are we a 501c4…who’s this charity supposed to benefit exactly…who’s our spoksperson….????….I’m going to bed!

  34. Kukulet says:

    So…Kelly thinks that “mean” tweeters will automatically donate a dollar to charity for every mean tweet they post to her, simply because she told them to. Why? She doesn’t donate to charity when she takes potshots at Bethenny on Twitter.

    She also think that Lynn should start a charity for “all the housewives”. I guess they’ve all gone broke.

    “Opportunists need not apply”? Any guy with a brain need not apply, since he’d die of boredom after ten minutes, and any guy who might be looking for other reasons wouldn’t apply, because no one is that desperate.

    The woman is a psycho.

    • Abby Someone says:

      Mother Teresa is just another hat kiki tries to wear. She is DYING to be the spokesperson for something. She wants so badly to seem like the most charitable person that she turned up the crazy a notch and suggested her masses of critics donate. The fact that she has a legion of people who dislike her only strikes her as another opportunity. lol Our posts cannot possibly have an element of truth, so they must be mean.

      The reason she adopted that one night stand stance in St. Johns is because, surprise, she came back to NY and made a video on safe sex. Safe sex is “like so important to her”, (as if we all relish the idea of death.) She had a video claiming “like 40,000 condoms were handed out” from the mission. That number seemed to really concern her. (psst 30,000 probably went to Max and her ex husband doh)
      I did a little research and it seems Manhattan has nearly 67 thousand people per square mile, 1,576 million people, many of whom are men, so we’re talking about 729,000 people with penises on that island. Still blowin your mind up kiki? How about this, on that video where you claim your horse is 500 lbs, I have news for you, the average horse weighs about 1000 to 1200 lbs. Sooooo we can add mathmetician to your long resume?

      Kiki should spend less time worrying about what titles other people put on their resume, and more time being worthy of a career herself. She should start by fact checking her useless youtube videos. When she’s not glued to Lynn’s blog that is. 🙂

      • Anitabee says:

        Damn, all those people and Kikilet still can’t find someone to have sex with?

        Hmmm…I hope this twit does something soon to take “the edge” off…

      • Scorpiosue1102 says:

        The Vancouver olympics had 100,000 condoms on hand for the athletes. The Sydney olympics ran out of condoms and they supplied 70,000. Sex happens. :):):) Yay!

  35. viki55 says:

    Hi all. This is way off topic I am sure but I desperately need help. My husband is out of town for a week, visiting his father he hasn’t seem in 40 years. We got a new 6 week old puppy before he left. I am just beside myself. I tryed putting her in a crate right beside my bed. Oh the crying. Then I put the crate up on my hubby’s side of the bed but that didn’t help. I couldn’t take it so I let her out and read about puppy’s & crates on the net. It seems she might be too young and it could tramatize her to just lock her in without a slower introduction. So I have her in the kitchen with the open grate, a dogbed outside, her toys, potti pad, etc with a doggy gate up. The crying is breaking my heart which is still fragil from losing my last dog. Any advice would be most appreciated. I want to start her off right but I want to hold her to stop the crying too. What do I do?

    • LynnNChicago says:

      Oh my heart goes out to you, I know how you feel but I have no idea how to help a lonely puppy, I think it is just a matter of them getting used to being alone through the night. I’m so sorry, I wish I had a suggestion, it sounds like you’re doing everything right. I hope someone here has some good ideas.

      • viki55 says:

        Thanks Lynn. I hope so too. I guess the real problem is I am as lonely as the puppy and I want her to comfort me too. But I don’t want to do the wrong thing for the long run. Sorry for all the dang typos. Blurry.

        • Abby Someone says:

          6 weeks is so young. When I had a puppy that young I held him and let him sleep against me. Don’t worry about holding him too much. I have heard some people put a ticking clock in a blanket and the puppy thinks it’s his mother’s heartbeat as he sleeps.
          Puppies can be trained to love their den. You just have to be sure to put the food and water in his crate with him. He wont go to the bathroom where he eats.
          I hope I was of some help. Good luck with him.

    • We always put a ticking clock wrapped-up in a towel with puppies, to remind them of them mother’s heartbeat-do they even have those anymore?
      Maybe a warm-(not hot!) water bottle?

      • Yeah-I looked it up, maybe one of those kitchen timers, anything that ticks if you have it, wrapped-up in a towel.

      • moneycanbuyyouass says:

        This is what we did too, a wind up tick tock alarm clock, wrapped in a blankie. Also, if the puppy is hooked on you husband, go to the laundry and pull out one of his less favorite tee shirts and let him have it as a comfort object. If you can’t get your hands on a clock, try a radio. If it is a small puppy, and not too hot, you may want to use a cardboard box – cuts down on the stimulus that a crate has; or as we did, cover the crate (be sure to leave air openings) so that it cuts down on stimulus. Do not put it up on your bed, especially at first. Not to different than having a baby as they need to eat/drink/pee/poo frequently! Good luck! That little dog that you see pictured is now 18lbs and sleeps with us every night – its great in the winter and we fight over him to warm our toes and backs – not so much now in this hot, humid weather!

      • vilzvet says:

        The pup seems just a bit too young to be on its own. I thought pups were supposed to be at least 8 weeks…so the poor thing just misses his mommy and siblings. Oh well. I like the hot water bottle idea, I have read that for years. Our newest pup came here at 10 weeks, a tiny ChiaPom, and was put in our daughter’s uncarpeted room, with weewee pads nearby, in a bed, no crate. I don’t recall any allnight crying. However, the little bugger is now 7 months and all summer has been waking me up around 7 each morning, so I never get to sleep late! However, today for some reason let me sleep til 9. Thank you Zoey. Back to your situation, again the baby is just missing his mother. Hopefully this should only last for another couple of weeks. Obviously it’s too young to keep in your bed to comfort. So your idea of the kitchen is your best bet for now. Although when it’s older most dogs love their crates as it’s their version of a den and they feel secure in it. I used to keep one with the door open all the time in my kitchen, but got rid of it because let’s face it, they’re pretty ugly, and switched to the cute soft beds for when they’re housetrained.

      • Abby Someone says:

        oh I just realised you posted this. haha whoops

    • Jenni says:

      6 weeks does seem young to be separated from her mom and siblings. I think if it were me, I would make her a doggy diaper and try to cuddle her loneliness away, letting her stay with me for a bit…

    • MickeyMouth says:

      Have you tried tiring her out a little? Give her a really good play time with a toy, have her chasing your hand, or wrestling. Puppies at this age tire easily. Do you have a box. She may be too young for a crate but she needs to feel secure. A large room may feel scary to her.

    • Six weeks is too early to be separated from the dam and litter. But now lets get through the next several weeks. Go on and cuddle for now to quiet and soothe the puppy. If you can borrow or purchase something called an “expen” GREAT. If not, google it and see if you can improvise with a small, safe closed-in area. Then set up the bottom half of the crate with a doggie bed in it. Put the paper and food/water on the floor outside of it. For the next few weeks until the puppy gets to 10 -12 weeks and gets its puppy shots, start taking the puppy outdoors more and more to housebreak it. Also, gradually put the top on the crate here and there. Eventually shut the door for short times during the day, and at night.
      I breed show dogs, and answer questions like this all the time that come in to the kennel club hot line. If you need, I can give you my email to contact me for more info. I don’t mind helping.

      • viki55 says:

        Yes please. Or email me at vkozski@gmail.com. Thanks so much. She did finally stop crying but I just went and got her. She is too young. The owner said 8 weeks but the vet calculated 6 weeks.. She is eating & playing great. She was socialized for sure. I really appreciate all the wonderful advice.

    • Just Me says:

      Vicki – Long time lurker here, but I had to respond. Wrap the puppy in a towel like a burrito (the way Jason and Bethenny do with Bryn) and put her right next to you on the bed. Let her hear YOUR heartbeat! Six weeks was just to young for this puppy to have been taken from its mother and placed in a home. They’re usually weaned at 8 wks. or so. You can train her to be alone at night when she’s a little older (10 wks.), but for now she needs to bond with you. I’ve been doing animal rescue for years and have found if I first help them feel safe, they are much easier to train. The puppy feels very unsafe all alone at six weeks, let her bunk right next to you for a while.

      • viki55 says:

        Thank you! She is now in my bed waiting:) I wanted so much to just follow my heart on this one but didn’t want to do the wrong thing.

        Thank you everyone! Me and liitle Kati are gonna cuddle and sleep. I will reread all the advice tomorrow. Bless you all!

        • Jenni says:

          I am so glad! I think you are making the right choice for BOTH of you…

        • Abby Someone says:

          aww that is really sweet. Now I want to cuddle a puppy. Guess I’ll have to settle for my two cats (my crazy cat lady starter kit) in my face early in the morning.
          Nuzzle the puppy for me.

        • Kat says:

          You did good! Follow your instincts with a pup so young.
          Great advice from everyone imho.
          Many years ago I adopted a pup that was as young as Kati. A woman came into a bar with a box of puppies. It was happy hour… I took a pup home.
          She slept with us at first for quite awhile as I recall it. She lived to be 16 yrs old. Great little dog named Reo.
          (After REO Speedwagon.)

    • Blue Sky says:

      Six weeks does sound really young…8 weeks or even at 3 months would have been better. Our first dog cried so much in the crate, I couldn’t leave her in there, so she probably slept with us. We ended up getting a second dog to keep her company! Do you have a friend with a dog that you could “borrow” for awhile, or would you consider having 2 dogs? It works well for us with the 2, they keep each other company, especially when they go to the kennel together. It was a lot easier with the 2nd dog. He never cried in the crate, and the older female treated him like her puppy, it was so cute. They are german shepherds, and are great dogs! Good luck, keep letting us know how your puppy is doing.

    • JKW says:

      Dogs are pack animals. They don’t like to be alone. Bring her into the bed with you and the crying will stop. She will also sleep longer with someone with her. If that isn’t an option then try a wind up clock or music for company. She just left her mom and litter mates and is a new home. You can only crate puppies for as many hours as their age in months. They can’t phyically hold their urine and it causes problems if they try to. ( urinary tract infections and also stress ) They don’t like to go where they live. Either way she will need to go out every 2-3 hrs. In your bed you will feel her become restless and can take her out.

      • MAMAZ says:

        Viki- You can buy a small stuffed dog at PetsMart that has a microwaveable insert. Heat it up before you put the puppy in the crate for the night. The puppy will cuddle up to the warm toy and fall asleep. They work great. Put up a pic of the new pup when you have a chance!

    • Katie says:

      A hot water bottle or heating pad on low, may help your puppy sleep. Good luck I hope you get some sleep too!

    • Ada May says:

      Do have clock that ticks(like an old aarm clock)? If so, put it near the puppy’s bed close enough so that she can hear it.

      That should help

  36. vilzvet says:

    Hmmm, why would Teresa announce that she “may” be in LA this Tuesday, which would be Aug.17th? Could this be anything to do with Dancing With the Stars??

  37. Um about Kelly-yeah, what you all said.
    Just a little heads-up about tomorrow. For some reason, and sorry I don’t have a stinky-linky, but for some reason I have the date August 16th, burned into my brain as the day that the appeal will be decided about The Giudice’s auction.
    (whether it will or will not occur on the 22nd).
    I’m thinking that we should probably hear something one way or the other by Tuesday?

  38. TrueLifeDiva says:

    Had to put down my chicken wings and koolaide to jump into the fray. Kelly, you look like hell. You sound like an idiot and you’re embarrassing yourself on a daily basis. Your smile looks like you just smelled a fart. You are not pretty. Your leathery body is disgusting! That “cartwheels on the beach” PR stunt was hilarious. I thought I was looking at Mick Jagger in a bikini. Several websites have called you “A bloggers dream” not becuase you are fabulous, because you are dumb. I know, I know… Haters are part of the ecosystem. Stupid people like you make me glad I have common sense! 🙂

    • Anitabee says:

      I hope Kelly realizes that selfish-self-absorbed-patron-guzzling-bullying idiots like herself are part of the ecosystem too.

      Mick Jagger in a bikini!! Too true!! ROTFLMFAO!

  39. TLM says:

    At this point, do we need any more analysis of KKB or her life? I kind of thought we had moved on since nothing has really changed with her since the end of the show. Personally I was happy not to have seen or heard anything about her in a while.

    I watched the finale of Khloe & Kourtney Take Miami tonight, and I cannot believe what a total asshole Scott Disick is, perhaps even more than Levi Johnston. Why Kourtney got involved again with this loser and got pregnant by him after having one pregnancy scare with him before that. He is every bit the freeloader he was before she got pregnant, and is a little spoiled brat. He thinks he shouldn’t be bothered with having to pay bills? Really? Well, maybe Kourtney should file for child support from him. If he cares so much about his son, he should be happy to pay it, right?

    She should not have gone to therapy with him, and I thought the therapist who tells Kourtney she has to help him should have his license pulled. No, she doesn’t need to help him. She didn’t cause his alcoholism. He needs to be in an inpatient rehab, isolated, no phone calls or visits, and certainly he needs to not be working at a bar anymore. None of this was discussed.

    It was obvious to me that the final little speech Scott made was yet another attempt to manipulate Kourtney into staying with him. He even tried to blame her then, saying she “attacked” him, and then pulled back because he knew this was truly his last chance with her. So he did his little Oscar-worthy performance, puppydog eyes and all. If I hadn’t seen the multiple times this guy had acted like a crude, disgusting pig, trying to shove money in a waiter’s mouth, showing up naked in front of Kourtney and her friend and telling them to “get to work” on him, telling Bruce Jenner, “I know how to handle my lady and you know how to handle yours” and countless other arrogant acts, I might have believed him. But it’s clear he is a manipulator who turns on a dime and only says nice things when he’s trying to get something. He knew the Kardashian family has money, and made sure he hitched himself to their wagon permanently by having a child with Kourtney. What was this girl thinking?? She knew he cheated on her and had lied to her repeatedly. Did she really think Scott was the best she could do? I don’t understand it.

    The most bizarre part of the Scott Disick story is that the more fucked up his life gets, the better dressed he is. Whether it’s in the therapist’s office, the club where he supposedly works, or in the cab post-surgery, his hair is always perfectly coiffed, he’s wearing a perfectly ironed shirt and a brightly colored sweater is jauntily tied around his neck with coordinated driving mocs. Or he’s wearing a perfectly coordinated blazer and tie. Funny, I don’t remember anyone on Intervention ever looking this good. I’m convinced the guy has a full-time stylist, or is in denial of his true sexuality. Is the latter the reason for his binge drinking? Just a theory.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      TLM I’m sorry that I disappointed you, you really don’t have to read the blogs if they don’t interest you. I don’t watch any of the Kardashians so I won’t be blogging about them.

      • Abby Someone says:

        No offense to you at all TLM, but I can’t think of much I would rather talk about less than the Kardashians. I just find it mind numbingly bad. It is more staged than any reality show I have seen. Or maybe they are just really bad actors.

        Kiki’s tweets are new as are some of her recent interviews,so I’d say she’s still relevant as this stuff goes. I guess we all go through different stages with the reality shows we watch.
        Lynn, I really loved this blog about Kelly because personally I never felt she was truly called on her behavior. It was particularly refreshing to see you build such good arguments then see that she read them! It was like an early Christmas present after being frustrated through last season.

        “And so shines a good deed in a weary world. “:)

        • I quit The Kardashians after I found-out that the whole episode about (the one famous for sex-video & large ass), “finding” a sick puppy was F-A-K-E.
          They borrowed the sick dog from someone. The surgery was already scheduled. I had to look it up online because they were not clear at the end about if the dog lived or not.
          It just really annoyed the heck out of me. And it was so mind-numbing. (the family in general).
          Also, Rob “accidentally” consuming boner-medicine?
          I just couldn’t take it anymore.
          I have to admit that they are all beautiful to look at, and I found-out that THAT! was pretty much all smoke & mirrors too. Literally, that’s the name of the fake eyelashes that they wear. by a guy called S. Moleski.
          I knew that I was almost hypnotically attracted to his specific eyelashes, and make-up work in general because ALL of the shows that I watched at the time, that guy had done the make-up & eyes.
          And I couldn’t figure-out why I watched all these otherwise boring shows. Kim from Atlanta HW, Kendra & the Kardashian family ALL used his product at the time-weird huh?
          This Scott story would have killed me if I still watched.
          I may even try to catch the finale if it airs again but I won’t be taken-in because they were back together before the series even aired.

      • TLM says:

        I just skimmed over the blog. I guess I was surprised to see the whole thing was devoted to KKB, since it seems like nothing has really changed with her. My comment was more of a general one that KKB is old news to me (I guess unless she punches someone new out, or has another nervous breakdown in public, or gets thrown off a horse or something).

        @housewifehater, interesting about the Kardashians’ makeup! Never knew that. I am more fascinated with their unstoppable hair more than eyelashes, lol. I guess I’m not too surprised about the puppy story and Viagra story being fake, but I can’t believe Scott would punch a mirror and have surgery for the sake of the show. (They show his hand in surgery, and it’s pretty bad — if that was faked, I would be surprised). I couldn’t stand them but they’ve grown on me a little. I still can’t believe Khloe’s quickie wedding to Lamar was real, but apparently it was. I refuse, though, to buy their “Perfect Skin” product they keep advertising. That infomercial is so fake it’s funny. Khloe and Kourtney even pretend, “Let’s just film the commercial without Kim since she isn’t here yet!” and Kim comes in and pretends to be pissed off. Really bad, but I’m hoping it’ll make The Soup with Joel McHale one of these days. LOL.

        I truly do feel bad about the situation for Kourtney and her son. She clearly picked the wrong guy to have a child with.

  40. TLM says:

    What just happened?? I left a post and found myself in the June 1 blog, but the post didn’t show up there either.

  41. boston02127 says:

    Kelly, here’s a dollar for one of your made up charities.
    Thru Kelly’s eyes…..
    You have a hugh man body: Thanks! I’m flattered that you look at me.
    You have horse teeth: Thank you… I use Crest White Strips.
    Your skin looks like burnt leather. Thank you, I own an amazing beach house.
    You’re extremely greasy looking. Thanks….Fried food is delish!
    Your hair is an outdated rats nest. Thanks, I’m honored to use Nexxus.
    You’re a total washed up mess. Thank you, I just ran ten miles then saved a duck.
    Keep the change, you dumb ass.

    • Anitabee says:

      Well if Kelly owed a $1 for everytime she was mean then….I estimate that she owes at least a thousand to Bethenny’s favorite charity for all the times Kelly was mean to her on that Virgin Island trip last year.

      Pay up Kelly — tweet Bethenny and ask her which Charity you should make a contribution in her name too.

  42. You know..I consider myself a Kelly fan, mostly because I find her shenanigans entertaining and hilarious..but I think it’s ridiculous how she tries to pretend like she’s Mother Teresa, and fakes like her only reason for being on reality TV is promote her charitable work (the work that she was so strongly against affiliating her name with on season 2..but I digress). So we shared this exchange of tweets today.

    @lilyannlucy @kikilet stop pretending you’re all about charity!! we all know you mostly just wanna be “infamous”..embrace it hun!! #rhnyc 11:05 AM Aug 14th via web

    @kikilet @LilyAnnLucy here’s our first mean tweeter, get really mean and donate $1 to ur fav charity. Vent it out, give back 11:12 AM Aug 14th via Twitter for BlackBerry® in reply to LilyAnnLucy

    @lilyannlucy @kikilet and the tweet i sent you wasn’t mean..at all…it was more of an homage to your ridiculous personality about 11 hours ago via web

    @kikilet girl, please!! my tweet was hardly mean! it was more so comical 9:58 PM Aug 14th via web

    @kikilet i even used the word “infamous” that you repeatedly use to describe yourself..clearly as an homage 9:58 PM Aug 14th via web

    @kikilet it bothers me that you didn’t respond to any of the nice tweets i sent you, then labeled me as a mean tweeter about 12 hours ago via web

    @kikilet obviously, i know you’re busy, and i don’t expect you to respond to all my tweets about 12 hours ago via web

    @kikilet i just thought it was kind of rude…if you saw all my other tweets, you’d know i’m a kelly fan about 12 hours ago via web

    @kikilet @LilyAnnLucy I can’t respond to all tweets, mean tweeting makes me sad. I am a STRANGER. Get meaner, give to ur charity about 11 hours ago via Twitter for BlackBerry® in reply to LilyAnnLucy

    @lilyannlucy @kikilet yes you’re a stranger, but i’m one of your fans about 11 hours ago via web

    @ kikilet @LilyAnnLucy I respond to my awesome fans, and the mean tweeters they get to give to charity. Its a winwin for me. about 10 hours ago via Twitter for BlackBerry® in reply to LilyAnnLucy

    Hmm..I thought her ridiculous personality was in part just for TV, but after actually exchanging tweets with her, I can only imagine what she’s like in person.

  43. Kokuanani says:

    Don’t know if anyone has mentioned this [sorry, I read ALL the comments on the prior thread and was slugging my way through these], but in the new People magazine, Bethenny has “her own” page on the “beauty watch.”

    P.92 features a picture of Bethenny and then a bunch of “products.” Good pic.

    I’ve got the hard copy of the magazine, so I don’t have a link.

    • OneMoreinBoston says:

      You know I forgot to point this out: but last week when I was watching BGM? The Lost Footage I flipped over to E! during one of the commercial breaks .

      There was a show, I think it was called “50 reasons you’ll never get a date or ever have sex” about the stupid stunts that doofus guys do to attract girls and who had a talking head? Bethenny!

      She looked amazing and said something witty and adorable that I already forgot what it was.

  44. Pat Johnson says:

    Not sure if Kelly is dumb, delusional, or just plain nuts, but her response to this post and blog shows she does lack any commonsense.

    The very last thing I would do if reading a rather unflattering post analyzing my faults and creepy behavior would be to “indirectly” direct people to THIS VERY BLOG by announcing it via Twitter!

    It does not get much stupider than that.

    Kelly try this old bromide: Silence is golden!

    • Abby Someone says:

      LOL That is such a great point. Kelly has often said “crazy sells” as if she’s just putting on an act as a means to do her very important charity work. But the fact is, there’s nothing to sell here. She choses to do this. If I was in the public eye as she is I would not be engaging with any critics. Especially since we have the advantage of knowing what ticks her off.
      I could tweet “I’ll give my dollar to your orphaned children” and that’s just her letting a stranger upset her. 🙂 If she is as healthy and happy as she claims, she would just ignore people who dislike her. True, that’s a whole lot of people, but that is what the block button is for.

  45. boston02127 says:

    What’s funny about Kelly’s tweet to Lynn is that Kelly is known to copy what others
    say. She learned “non-press person” from someone, I’m guessing it was said about her.

    • Anitabee says:

      It’s probably Kelly’s way of telling Lynn that Kelly is “UP HERE” and Lynn is”Down There”.

      Too bad Kelly has her head stuck up her own butt WAY UP TO HERE…

    • Need a Hobby says:

      Don’t forget, Kelly’s a “journalist” you know. I’m sure if Edward R Murrow were around today he’d be stalking people on the street, asking them if they wear underwear…

  46. Olivia says:

    How bad can a person’s life be if they do nothing but sit around “twittering” day and night to a bunch of strangers by saying the most innocuous statements and expecting positive feedback? She must sit there Googling herself nonstop which would account for her rapid response to a blog barely minutes old.

    • Abby Someone says:

      I don’t know if this was posted but her latest one is this:

      @h8l8 yes I want @lynnNchicago to start a charity for all the housewives. She will feel good to give back. Go, lynnnn

      Just think if Kiki gave one penny for each minute she’s been late to something in her life, we could end world hunger!

      • Olivia says:

        If she contributed a dime against the number of tweets she has sent out since the day after the episode featuring the VI trip was aired, the “charities” she reportedly supports would be most grateful.

        The last thing I need to be nudged into doing via Kelly’s insipid suggestions, is to be told to be more charitable. Or whatever the latest thought that has popped into her empty head and finds its way into cyberspace.

        Like Teresa advising us about household budgets. The impact is the same.

  47. Well shit! I have that exact same fish filled with seashells – I love that fish. And now it’s ruined because everytime I look at it I’ll think of Kelly and Al Sharpton. That crazy bitch ruins everything

    • Abby Someone says:

      LOL she does. Here is a video I made in tribute to her lost marbles. It’s what I imagine happens after her late night gummi bear overdoses.

  48. boston02127 says:

    The Manzo family celebrated their parents birthdays today. (both parents share the same birthday) They rented a bus and went on a tour of Brooklyn NY. From reading tweets these were the stops. 1. Nino’s Pizza 2. church they were married in
    3. Damascus Bakery 4. A pharamacy 5. Court Pastry Shop 6. Randazzo’s Clam Bar 7. Pauly the lobster guy 8. Mona Lisa Bakery 9. “yayyyy waffles”
    The tour lasted all day. They all tweeted pretty much all day long. Their parents are 73 years old. I don’t see this being too much fun for them.

    • Sha2000 says:

      I don’t agree here Boston; actually it sounds rather thoughtful to me. They included the church their parents were married in I bet the other stops on the “tour” were meaningful to their parents as well. You know the older we get the more it seems we reminisce. A pharmacy & a bakery, etc? Who knows! At 73 its hard to shop for something that’s different and meaningful; maybe taking them back to their past and having stop where mama bought her “homemade” cannoli was an exercise in love?

  49. boston02127 says:

    G’nite all. 🙂

    Kelly—Stop twittering & put the booze down. GO-TO-SLEEP!

  50. Zoey says:

    Jill tweeted this in response to a commenter who said there was only one printing of her book. Anyone know the truth?

    @LosingForty why lie. Why do u care? Check with publisher but apologize when proved!

    • I’m still burnt-out from researching the lie that Teresa & Rob cooked-up about selling more books, but this really intrigues me too.
      Since I’m up with insomnia-thought I’d look-around. So far I found something else that I just noticed on the site for Jill’s book.
      http://www.secretsofajewishmother.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=section&layout=blog&id=14&Itemid=103&limitstart=15
      First of all, it claims that Danielle’s book was 150,000 copies. I thought I had seen the number for Danielle’s book at 10,000.
      Secondly, I just noticed that THAT BITCH Jill, DiSSED! Alex + Simon’s book on her own book’s site!
      Wow she has a lot of nerve.
      Ok-maybe the quote wasn’t from Jill herself, but it is her book’s site.
      It says that put-down that people won’t be “as” interested in Alex + Simon’s book as the other wives.
      I wouldn’t be surprised if Jill cooked-up that line herself.

      • I was close. The nasty comment about Alex & Simon’s book was authored by Jill’s book publicist.
        AKR public relations logo is stamped on the press-release for Jill’s book which was repeated everywhere.
        It’s copied on Jill’s own site, with a heading, “Chicago Sun Tribune”, but has the AKR stationary/logo, HMMMMm.
        http://jillzarin.com/test/wp-content/bookpress/April11-ChicagoSunTimes.pdf

      • Kukulet says:

        There is NO way that Danielle’s book, or Jill’s, sold 150,000 copies.

        These are limited interest books by pseudo celebrity authors with ghostwriters, so the target audience is fairly small, compared to, say, an author like Michael Crichton. No publishing house on the planet would authorize an initial run beyond 10,000 for that kind of book. It is simply not cost effective for them to do so.

        Most books of this type start out with a 10,000 copy run. If the demand exceeds the supply, then they add more runs of 5-10,000 each, depending on the demand. Since I sincerely doubt that either book is in its 15th printing, then the “150,000 copies sold” is pure bullshit.

        I sure haven’t heard of either of those books taking the world by storm. In the wide world of publishing, both books are piddling successes.

  51. katiecoo says:

    Allo? Allo? Does anyone in here remember me? 😀

    Just popped over to see if any of you are discussing Patti Stanger’s breakup with her “fiance”. :::what a surprise::: (not)

    She’s another one who’s been seething w/ jealousy over Bethenny, wishing her UNwell, also trashing the Bachelorette on it’s “track record”. Used to watch her show (before I realized what a bitch she is after seeing her with that blond Atlanta HW trashing Bethenny while talking to the ever nasty Jill Zarin) and how many of HER fixups even went on a second date, much less down the aisle?

    Well well well, the sham of her “engagement” has finally ended. What a success story! Another sour grapes loser in the face of Bethenny Frankel’s train to success.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      Hey Katiecoo! Yes, saw that the sham of an engagement was called off…I don’t believe it ever was a true engagement, I think it was all staged for the show.

      Patti was getting so much flak from clients and the girls about her being single herself that she came up with this ridiculous engagement. I’ll bet the guy wasn’t even her boyfriend prior to that, someone she hired to play the part of her man.

      Does she really expect us to believe that a 7-year relationship ended because she only now found out that he doesn’t want children, and at her age, she now does was want children?

      All of those wedding planner meetings that were on the show were all for show, we know this because when she appeared on WWHL after her finale aired, she told Andy that she hadn’t even set a date yet and what’s the hurry and we just got engaged, when in fact it had been almost a year since she had announced the engagement. Why was she making all those plans with a wedding planner if they hadn’t even set a date yet?

      It was all a scam!

      • Abby Someone says:

        That makes a lot of sense Lynn. I am sure you are right. Also, the timing of this announcement is probably planned as well. Now she can say the break up happened over the break and she can come back next season with some kind of storyline. Real or fake, she really made a fool of herself on the video bashing Bethenny. It was so low class and I hope it hurts her career.

      • klmh says:

        I agree. She had to find someone because thats her job, to find mates for others and without her own, how can she be taken seriously?

    • Anitabee says:

      Katiecoo — been missing your snark.

      Welcome back! 🙂

    • Abby Someone says:

      I saw that! Another early Christmas present. She will no doubt say this “growth experience” added to her expertise on love, even though when she met this guy, she was old enough to know right away if the desire to have kids was going to be a conflict. She’s a real genius.
      I not only use to watch her show, I would defend her to my husband and say I liked her honesty. Then I saw her in that clip where she is at the Ivy with Kim calling Bethenny the C word! OMG it was such an embarassing display. She was worse than Jill. By the way isn’t a cell phone at lunch a no-no on her show? I don’t care if it’s a date or a friend, it’s so rude. To me it seemed Kim was an ally and not a friend. They were both yacking to paparazzi right at the fence. It was really a freak show. I’ll just say it, Kim scares me. I mean I’m afraid of her the way some people are afraid of clowns. lol I’ll have to do my nightmares about Kim video.

      Regarding the restaurant, I don’t know if anyone here has been to the Ivy in LA, but I can tell you the ONLY reason anyone goes there is to be seen. The paparrazi hang out all day. You WILL have your photo taken, even if you are looking up at the D list. Also, the Ivy is small, crowded, loud, the service is slow, and I paid 25 dollars for a few under cooked ravioli in watery chunks of tomato. Those women are tools.
      She wants to have kids? Can you imagine that know it all yapping her pearls of wisdom in your ear for 18 years? yikes
      I don’t profess to be a love guru like Patty but I think most sensible people can figure out men don’t like loud mouth insecure yentas. He dodged a bullet. Maybe his family saw that Ivy footage and staged an intervention.

      • TLM says:

        I’m confused…was Patti with Kim from Atlanta, Kim D or Kim G???!!? How dare she use the C word for Bethenny or anyone else. Patti S. is the most troutmouthed, rude woman on television. If she’s so concerned about true love, as she says, she should be nothing but happy for Bethenny. Since they are both Jewish women from NYC and both have their own business and each have had their own show, I can only guess that Patti’s motivation is jealousy. It is really sad.

        • Abby Someone says:

          Oh my ga… TLM you have got to see this.

          • Abby Someone says:

            I want to point out, as if her insane jealousy wasn’t apparent enough, pretty much everything Patti says about pilots here is FALSE. I worked behind the scenes for years in Hollywood. She is full of it.

            She is saying “it’s a very dangerous game. If it doesn’t get picked up, America could turn on you.” Wrong wrong wrong. First of all, Bethenny DID do both shows. But also it’s NEVER a bad gamble to do a pilot. Most pilots don’t get picked up, but if you do book a pilot, it films. If it doesn’t get picked up, as far as Hollywood is concerned you are a working actor with a recent credit on your resume. Every year the networks fight over the same actors. I think Patti knows better. As if she even hesitated one second before leaping on Millionaire Matchmaker. This video shows what a horrible petty person she is. This is a classic example of the things jealous people say when they want someone to fail. This woman has her own show, even if she didn’t, she can afford to be happy for someone.

            Ultimately Bethenny is having the last laugh here. I hope her people sent Patti and Kim each a gift box with a big bow that contained the ratings for “Bethenny’s Getting Married.”

    • Kat says:

      Katiecoo, good to see ya!
      Stanger is such a bitch! And a liar.

  52. I’m wondering if Kelly & Bethenny being in the same place at the same time this weekend was no accident?
    Could they be taping?
    I hate to admit that I’m like a dog with a bone, and to me, Kelly was far more evil to Bethenny on Scary Island than I thought Jill was all season.
    The reason is because Jill was quoted as saying that she did not know that Bethenny was expecting a baby on top of her other troubles when Jill was going after her being evil, and Kelly said out-loud on that trip that she didn’t care that Bethenny was pregnant, and even though Bethenny said that she didn’t want to play the “pregnancy card”, that doesn’t mean that any normal decent human being doesn’t respect someone’s delicate condition.
    OK-I know that Jill continued to do dirty-work behind the scenes and online, but not out-right verbally attacking like Kelly did-she was awful ,and accused Bethenny of trying to kill her with knives & other gobblety-gook.
    I was so relieved when Bethenny got validation from Kelly’s crazyness, but I’m sorry even if someone is not trying to play the “preggo-card”, a normal woman is sensitive to someone in that condition.

      I think Jill was worse to Bethenny than Kelly and this is why: Jill was supposed to be best friends with Bethenny. Kelly and Bethenny never got along (It took meeting Bethenny 5 differrent times before Kelly even remembered her haha). So just starting from two different places in Bethenny’s life (Jill and Kelly I mean), I think Jill was MUCH crueler and the cut is that much deeper.

      • You’re right. Jill did hurt Bethenny worse. I guess I’ll just never get over that stoopid, stupid Kelly saying that she didn’t care that Bethenny was pregnant, and the she flipped-out on her.
        Maybe that happens in domestic situations, but I’ve never seen it even portrayed on television and I don’t think many people have seen that level of dis-regard for someone’s well-being.

      • Quincy IL says:

        So true. When you have a friend or loved one do horrible things to you, it’s really hard to accept that you could ever trust them again.

    • debbie says:

      housewifehater;
      I think the only reason Kelly ‘seemed’ meaner than Jill is the fact that she shared more screen time with Bethenny.. Jill and Bethenny interacted very little during episodes..Jill kept avoiding her.

    • Zoey says:

      I totally agree with you. Kelly is the kind of mean and crazy you don’t see every day, she breaks all social and moral rules, whereas Jill is your more mainstream mean, sneaky and dishonest. They are two very different animals!

      Yes, Jill hurt Bethenny much more since she was a supposed friend, but I was so shocked that Kelly would treat a pregnant woman like this, and someone who’s father just died! Kelly is missing the basic human structure that most people have; instincts and raw emotions. She’s empty. She cannot see past herself.

    Hey all – long time lurker – love the blog! I read somewhere that Lynne has not been invited back to RHWOC. I guess she was pretty surprised by this. I wonder if her daughters behavior had something to do with this. They definitely seemed out of control and I was uncomfortable watching it. Maybe Bravo decided to do the right thing and not publicize their antics anymore(Those parents had no control).

    Hopefully Bravo will realize the same thing about Kelly and not invite her back. Watching the trip to the islands was painful and definitely scary.

    • Lizzie says:

      I read that Lynne is gone from RHOC as well. Thank goodness! That chick hit the bong a few dozen too many times!

      Would love to see AlexASS follow Lynne right out the door, and she can take her tubby, fauxhawk wearing hubby with her! And they can take Kelly from NYC … and she can take Kim from Atlanta … and Kim can take the Salamis from DC … and they can take the whole damned NJ cast …

      OK. I’m off to work now!

  54. mk says:

    Abby someone – Loved the video!!!!

  55. Lynn I love you! LMFAO at her stealing the fish bowl! I bet she did! Hahaha.

    Also, I don’t believe for one second she is friends with any of those “famouse” people she posts pictures of. When you go threw your photo album, are all your pictures of you and one or two friends standing next to each other at a public event? Probably not. Kelly’s pictures are classic “celebrity being nice and posing with a fan” pictures.
    None of these people are her friends. I am sure of it.

    I don’t think Kelly has ANY friends. I think the only interaction she has with people other than those that work for her is when she goes to parties. I think she knows a lot of people. I don’t think she has any friends.

    And what about the pic she posted with her “assistant”? What does a woman with no job need an assistant for?

    • Forgive the spelling. It’s late.

      • Kukulet says:

        I dunno…she knows that Paul “MacCartney” sails off of Montauk and that Gisele “Bunchen” is a great mother. That must make them all best friends, you know. Cause only the bestest friends will spell your name wrong. 😉

        • Olivia says:

          Wonder how many of her annual Christmas cards come back with “subject unknown” due to the misspelling of their names?

          It is not as if these people were not all over the internet to have their names spelled correctly. She is such an overall idiot!

        • You know what else, she doesn’t say “Gail is my good friend” she said “Gail is my kind of friend”
          She implies things without outright lying.
          I could say Bethenny is my kind of friend. She is. We could be great friends – if I knew her. Ya know what I mean?

          • Kukulet says:

            Yeah, she did the same thing yesterday, when she said that “Paul Mac sails off Montauk” or whatever. Her inference is that she personally knows McCartney well enough to know his habits. But, I could visit Montauk today, ask around the marinas and find out that McCartney sometimes sails from there-and I’ve never met McCartney in my life.

            It’s a TweetMaxine maneuver. Kelly probably has a slew of notebooks where she keeps info on celebrities so she can pass them off as ‘friends’.

          • Abby Someone says:

            That’s exactly right RCH. Her name dropping so vaguely is part of the illusion she creates. That’s like a gaffer behind the scenes on a movie saying “I spent 3 months hanging out with Johnny Depp.” just because they were on the same set.
            Kiki claims to have friends but she breezes in and out of every party for five minutes. It’s a life of “Hiyeeee,” byeeee,” even with her kids.

            Bumping into people even repeatedly is not friendship. But it is on planet kiki.
            She is not embarassed by her obvious attempts to seem like she’s rubbing elbows with the elite, because she feels fabulous enough to know those people. In her delusional mind, she’s A list. It’s pathetic. Kelly’s name dropping is the artistry of a lame B.S. artist.

  56. Did you guys see this yet?
    http://www.cnn.com/2010/SHOWBIZ/celebrity.news.gossip/08/16/white.house.crashers/
    The police escort for party-crashers was FAKED! I don’t get what they mean but I do get that Bravo said the police car was edited-in.
    This made a lot of news this am.

    • Need a Hobby says:

      That was the production company that makes the show, Half Yard Productions, not Bravo. The production publicist says a Park Police car escorted these boobs, but in editing a shot of a Metro police car was “incorrectly” used instead. Was it just sloppy editing or did a Metro car look more “official” and pretentious than a Park Police car? Remember, the show’s trying to portray these people as movers and shakers in DC, which they really aren’t.

      So now the question is, why was a federal Park Police car escorting these bozos, if that indeed was the case?

      The unraveling of the facade of these “reality” shows and their participants is more interesting than the shows themselves.

    Good Morning ya’ll. Many, many thanks to Lynn, Abby Someone, Housewifehater, Moneycanbuyyouass, Vilzvet, Jenni, MickeyMouth, Therealmelissa:), Just Me, Blue Sky, JKW & all the other wonderful women (ok, a few guys too) that blog here. All your great advice helped me & little Kati get through the night, cuddling & happy:)I think the kitchen crying experience did help a little because I had to leave her this morning and she seemed calmer, perhaps knowing I will return. She is there with a loud ticking clock & the TV on low in another room. A neighbor is going to be stopping in every 2 hours or so until I get home around noon. I was so overwhelmed last night I didn’t know where to turn. What an amazing group we have here! So much varied experiences and compassion it is almost unbelievable. As much as I am growing to hate the Housewives franchises I am so thankful that Jill Zarin showed her true colors & brought us all together. Thanks again!

    • MAMAZ says:

      Viki – I left you a reply upthread but you may not go back there. Glad the everyone’s advice helped. You can buy a small stuffed dog at PetsMart that has a microwavable insert. Warm it up and put it in the crate with Kati when you put her to bed. She will snuggle up to the toy and it will help her sleep. Put up a pic of the new pup when you get a chance!

      • viki55 says:

        How cool is that! Never heard of that before. I am dying to go shopping for her, she loves the stuffed toys right now. I don’t know how to post her picture…is it hard to do? I can make her my avitar but it is so small.

        • vilzvet says:

          Get out! What will they think of next! I’m already loving the unstuffed toys at Target, no more stuffing all over the place…

        • MAMAZ says:

          I’m not really sure, lol. I think Riley Kitty put some up after the Silex dinner. She would know. Also Boston seems pretty tech savvy.
          The microwaveable toy is in the puppy section. It’s sort of like a rice bag. I bought one when I got my French Bulldog. She loved it.

  59. Abby Someone says:

    On the subject of DC Housewives. Lynda did the impossible, she showed there are people MORE phoney than the Countess. Her fake concern for Michaele’s weight was really transparent. I think Michaele is thin but not dangerously thin. She does act hopped up on something and she is also phoney but she is not in need of Lynda’s “concern”.
    Which brings me to another point. The housewives have a tendency to look outward instead of at themselves. If anyone needs an intervention it’s Lynda. Someone needs to tell her enough with the plastic surgery already. That face looks painful. I swear this is exactly who she reminds me of, madame.

  60. MAMAZ says:

    I do my share of volunteer work and encourage my children to do the same. We don’t brag about it on the internet. What Kelly is doing is lip service. It’s offensive.
    If Kiki really wanted to be charitable SHE’D donate the dollar everytime she received a mean tweet. She’d raise more money that way! Then she could invite the tweeters to match her donations.
    Or she could donate $1 for every nice tweet she received. And again, ask her followers to match her donations.
    I don’t tweet but maybe someone could suggest these ideas to her.

  61. Anisa says:

    Lynn,

    You are always spot on with your blogs! I really hope Kelly reads this. She’s so transparent, I think everyone agrees it is Kelly’s goal in life to be as successful as Bethenny. It will NEVER happen, no matter how many pictures she takes of herself and posts to Twitter.
    PS: Bravo should do a Real Housewives of Chicago, featuring…YOU!

Since they aren’t electing to put themselves out there, aside from this public page about the brother, I’m not so keen on posting info about them. 🙂

    Did anyone here ever hear of Kelly Bensimon before the RHONY? I’m going to guess no. She always quotes the following, she’s been a model, author, equestrian, editor, designer, major tastemaker, ambassador of wool. Imagine all that on your resume and still never famous for anything. She has nothing to claim in life. She was a B-list model and was an unknown. All she will ever be known for is the crazy washed up hag lady who flipped out on RHONY.

    • cusi77 says:

      Boston_ I wish your Mom had a very nice Birthday. With a Daughter like you are, You two are Blessed. Congratulations girls!

        • Sending another New Jersey Happy B-day your Mom’s way Boston.
          I been meaning to ask if you are enrolled for Fall semester?
          you don’t have to answer if it is too personal.
          But-I just got done with my kid’s bills etc for the year, and I am an expert on admitting, buying textbooks, and financial aid/scholarships..
          I wanted to let you know that I am available (for you only because we all celebrated your graduation here & you are a good kid)-for any help you & mom need figuring it out.
          That goes for Spring Semester too.

    • Kukulet says:

      WTF is an ‘ambassador of wool’? Every time I see that, I just have to wonder what the hell that means because, no surprise, it literally makes no sense. I can only guess she once saw a sheep, and figured it sounded good.

    • OneMoreinBoston says:

      I actually had seen her.

      I had purchased the few issues of Elle Acessories Magazine that folded up pretty quickly, and I also had seen a photo spread of her apartment with the Hermes scarf pillows and that big ole horse.

      When she was going to be on RHONY, and I read some of her preview bio, I was actually excited!

      I thought finally some one that’s REALLY in the fashion business, which is just a huge NYC. (Not dissing Romana- but she sells overstock and her husband’s company designs religious jewelry, not exactly couture.) I also remember thinking that she was absolutely gorgeous and well spoken.

      Fail of epic proportions.

      • OneMoreinBoston says:

        sorry- meant huge in NYC

      • Kukulet says:

        In fairness to Ramona, I think her comment that she is “in the fashion business” was a defensive, knee jerk reaction to Kelly snottily insisting that Ramona knows nothing about the fashion industry. I agree that Ramona’s business hardly qualifies as couture, but that doesn’t mean she (or anyone else) isn’t capable of developing as much a basic understanding the industry as Kelly has.

        Kelly doesn’t have to be a snotty know it all, but she is.

    • Need a Hobby says:

      I’d heard of her only because of Project Runway’s Nina Garcia who worked at Elle for years. I’d heard of the short lived Elle Accessories that had Gilles’ wife KKB as it’s top editor for a time. Can anyone imagine putting Kelly in charge of anything? Reportedly, Nina and KKB did not get along. (No surprise there: Nina = coherent & presumably competent, KKB = KKB. ) KKB was dumped & Accessories later folded.

      There’s a whole backstory to Elle, power struggles, Gilles’ reign at Elles ended, Garcia was “disappeared” and reappeared at Marie Claire. And KKB, whose major previous employment of note apparently was her marriage to Gilles, appeared on RHONY. Obviously this was someone who got her gigs through connections, not through skill, competence or the “hard work” Kiki so often references.

      • vilzvet says:

        So the Elle Magazine (and they do mention Accessories) scenes we see today on the MTV show “The City” which include editor Joe and Erin….did they work with Kelly?? I simply cannot imagine Erin being able to work closely or under Kelly. Maybe Erin succeeded Kelly as editor?? Can’t imagine Kelly being so up there…

    It always makes me ill when Kelly refers to herself as a “journalist”, an “author”, and a “editor”. I have an undergraduate degree in journalism and a graduate degree in English lit. Granted, I have never written anything of note, but I’ve worked as a researcher for many years for authors who work hard to excel at their craft, and who abide by journalistic ethics, instead of just throwing some stock photographs together and adding some poorly written captions via their Blackberries. I’ve also known editors who give all they can to shaping books from raw material into the best that it can be-every great book in recent history has had a dedicated editor behind it.

    Yet, this dumbbell proclaims herself to the world at large as an editor, author, and journalist? She’s one step below tabloid hacks.

  82. davsgirl says:

    Excellent blog. Fan-freakin-tastic. I’ve followed you for a while, but never posted before this.

    In reference to Kelly calling herself an equestrian….I beg to differ. I knew Kelly way back when she was just Kelly Killoren…and she was bat-shit crazy even then too. But what I’m really wanting to say – I am an equestrian. I’ve been riding for 30 years. I’ve competed and won many upper level classes at rated shows on both the East & West coast, including the Hampton Classic. Kelly is in no way an equestrian. She feels she can call herself that cause she has the money to lease a high-level horse and hire a trainer. That, my dear Kelly, does not make you an equestrian. Your poor horse has to tolerate you slamming him in the sides with your incorrect leg cues, bouncing on his back when you jump ahead, and yanking him in the mouth when you get left behind over a fence. Thank god you ride a patient tolerant schoolmaster….my warmblood would have dumped your sorry ass before the first turn!

    • Need a Hobby says:

      ooh, feel free to share as much as you (and your attorneys) find prudent to share about KK.

      I’m no expert, but seeing Kelly bounce around on horseback did not suggest an expert or even a good rider to me.

    • Squirrels says:

      I love warmbloods. I’m no equestrian, but do enjoy riding. Last warmblood I rode was like relaxing on a sofa. What a great gait!

      As to Kelly, why would the owner allow her to mess with a highly trained animal? Wouldn’t mis-cueing, bit yanking, etc. the horse have a bad effect on the it in the future? Even horses know how to get even, but why subject it to a poorly trained rider?

    • Abby Someone says:

      davsgirl you are not the first equestrian she has offended with that claim. I have heard that the people at the stables in the Hamptons can’t stand her. She is supposedly very clunky in the saddle. I love horses and although I don’t ride daily, I fully understand why she ticks off people who know horses.

      In one of her videos she says “you have to have a lot of integrity to ride a horse” haha. Well she should start with brains because she also said you need integrity because “that’s 500 pounds” uhm..no..no it’s not.

      I about died when she refered to the bad pancake and said “We’ll feed it to the horse.” I heard the gasp of equestrians around the nation on that one. haha I am not an expert but one of the first things they teach you about a horse is diet is the MOST important part of caring for a horse. They eat about 18 hours a day but that diet, if it’s wrong, can cause leaky gut or even death. They are not goats. You don’t EVER give a horse a pancake.

      I laughed when the horse threw her on tv. I knew there was no way she could connect with any other living being and you need to communicate with a horse. She’s too A.D.D. for that.

      Thank you for pointing this out. Once again this is Kelly trying to seem like wonder women but coming across ill informed.

      • Kukulet says:

        What does personal integrity have to do with riding a horse? I think the horse would prefer the rider to have some skill, actually.

        Just when you think it’s safe to go back in the water, Kelly spews something even dumber…

      • Quincy IL says:

        I have 25 horses…7 rescues… 5 really old and out to pasture but the owners pay for their care. I do give cut up apples and carrots to the horses. We have a garden and orchard. They like certain tree leaves as well as the various grasses and dandelion flowers are gone right away. I never feed them gummy bears or processed foods like pancakes. Horses are tons of work. They need to be brushed and fly sprayed. The hooves have to be cleaned daily. Kelly wouldn’t know how to care for a horse.

        • Abby Someone says:

          That is really awesome that you have rescuses. What a kind heart.
          I bet Kelly has never groomed her own horse. If you told her to clean the frogs she would say “eew! I like horses not frogs. Frogs are creepy.”

    • 201MaryF says:

      Thanks for your observations. Finally, someone sees Kelly’s true colors. My 20 yr. old daughter has ridden for more than half her life. We have leased and owned horses. She nows rides for her college equestrian team. You always have someone at the stable who leases an expensive horse, takes many lessons, and then blames the horse when they fail in competitions. Then they move on to a “better” stable”.

      I knew there was no way Kelly was a true equestrain when she said she would give the burnt pancake to the horses. They truly have delicate digestive systems. Colic certainly could have been a result.

      Our horse loved those red and white spiral peppermints as a special treat.

      And while we are on the topic, what was the deal with the DC housewives? Michaele certainly was dressed to ride, but seemed to be totally at a loss on the horse. Also, weren’t they just supposed to ride. How did that turn into a polo lesson. And wouldn’t a beginner lesson have been the right thing for her?

      • vilzvet says:

        Well the DC housewife said flat out she is not a rider….yeah, that’s who you give a horse to! Wonder what has become of that animal. I bet she doesn’t even have it anymore.
        I have also been a rider, but since have stopped (it’s so GD expensive). My former trainer is the brother of Kelly’s current one (unless she has switched!) I’ve been to the Hampton Classic several times (as a viewer) and may go this year again, and it would be a hoot to watch Kelly compete! I would have been in her classes if I had continued, darn!! And yes, if you have money you can lease anything, but she would need a minimum of 100K to buy outright a really good horse to brag in her bio that she’s a real equestrian.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Kelly is a real horse – faced that is. She is an authentic, integrity filled equestrian because she has the britches and boots to prove it! I pity any gentle creature that has to bear that load of manure on it’s back……..

    “Kelly way back when she was just Kelly Killoren…and she was bat-shit crazy even then too”

    More on this, if u care to share????

  85. Adgirl says:

    I’ve spent 5 minutes of my life that I won’t get back ruminating about why Kelly twiters incessantly. Drum roll please …. She believes it her JOB. She probably gets a stipend or cost per click for her “Kate Spade has great scarves for Spring – check them out at Saks!”.
    Therefore she has a lovely excuse for staring at her blackberry (“Blackberry has fab colors for Fall – check them out at Verizon!”) all day and regaling us with her halfwitisms.
    The more controversy about herself she can stir up, the better her chances of keeping sponsors b/c her users are “sticky” meaning they repeatedly view and respond to her. To wit her click thru rates are probably pretty decent. Everytime her twitters are mentioned here and elsewhere it is counted as a success by her marketing/PR team.

    Ok, I’m fading back into the real world now to mourn my lost 5 minutes.

      I think this is great news! It shows to me that this fellow very well may be looking into past shows to identify jewelry and other expensive items, possible real estate owned under her maiden name, and well, the list could go on and on.
      There is so much more to this story than a few cheap pieces of furniture and a stove…

  89. Judge delays auction?????

    Court is probably looking for more of those myterious undeclared assests.
    The value of the auction items was pretty low. I wonder what happened there – were there a significant number of things missing (things purchased by credit card but somehow not turned over to the auction company?) or maybe switched for items of lesser value?

    I wouldn’t put it past the G’s to hand over $6.00 earrings purchased from Claire’s at the mall while claiming it was the same $10,000 earring set on their credit card.

    • klmh says:

      I agree. Remember the ring on her left hand the first season on the show. It was a large diamond and it was not listed, anywhere. There are more assets in someone’s garage or vault.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I was thinking the same thing – between watching the show and viewing the list for the auction I was wondering where was all the stuff??? Setting a minimum bid is standard at an auction and the statement about the public wanting celebrity things was funny too (nice stall by their attorney but come on they are not celebrities that approach the status of collectable).
      Delaying but the outcome is the same – the stuff goes!

    Ahhhhh the day has finally come!! : via @real_housewives #RHONJ Danielle Staub fired from season 3! http://bit.ly/9ZEmJz 13 minutes ago via web Retweeted by you

    just crazy! I was up all night and have to get some rest now, but the stories keep coming today.

      plus, she found out that Bravo didn’t send her to Italy.

    • Quincy IL says:

      There are rumors, but Danielle nor Jacqueline seem to mention anything on twitter. They really can’t hold secrets so I don’t think this is true. Also, Bravo fired the Curtins and never made an announcement.

      • Need a Hobby says:

        Yeah, it’s a wait & see IMO. Doesn’t make sense that anyone would be told yes or no now. Possibly a publicity stunt? (“Sources” close to Danielle would never do such a thing. Right? Ha.) If Danielle was indeed told she was history, I’d expect her to be having “exclusive” media interviews ASAP.

        Bravo and the producers never announce who’s fired to the press (that I can recall…it’s not what they do). They only announce the initial or returning cast when they start promoting a show’s season’s run. That’s their history and Andy’s confirmed that’s their deliberate practice. But cast members do leak stuff.

    • Need a Hobby says:

      That’s rather odd, given the history of the HW’s shows. Usually casting decisions aren’t made until after the season ends and the show’s been picked up for another season. Not while the show’s season is still in its run.

      So, if this is true, why would producers even tell D now? There’s no need to know now, since they probably won’t be filming next season for months? It’s not as if Danielle’s bad behavior “sullied” the RHNJ “brand.” Rather it made RHNJ. It was the Danielle show. Without her, it’s a snoozefest.

      So if Danielle’s gone does Dina come back and, like, give us home decorating tips (oy) and do the chanting/meditation/new age thing while cussing out whoever displeases her next?

      If this report is true, one would think Danielle would be the first one to go to the media and before the cameras to play the victim. (While Kim G, that other nutcase, tries to crash the interviews. She’s a potential cast member I’d figure. Unless she’s just this season’s gadfly and comic relief.)

      And don’t gloat too much Teresa, maybe next season if you’re still around we’ll get to see you living out of a Winnebago. A used one.

    • Quincy IL says:

      The only thing that gives the rumor credence is Andy seemed affected by the reunion craziness.

      Hmmm a secet thing that makes me wonder was the trip last week for a secret meeting in NYC with the NJ girls…. Remember J and T tweeted that.

      Monitor Ashley’s twitter… she won’t be able to contain herself if this is true.
