I Hate Jill Zarin RHONJ Final Wrap Up September 12, 2010
Well, I looked around, I think it’s safe to say we’re completely finished with the New Jersey crew, no lost footage, no “extra” hour long episodes on Teresa’s bad behavior this year. Gone, but not yet forgotten. Teresa continues to stay front and center in the public eye with her front page In Touch Magazine piece and endless interviews that all include the same quote. “You can’t believe everything you read”. She’s right, the dollar amounts that are quoted are typically rounded off so she can say it is not true and be accurate.
Andy Cohen asked her at the reunion and again on Watch What Happens Live, it is like they’ve preplanned the entire interview, Andy will round off all the numbers which leaves the door open for Teresa to deny deny deny and no one can say she’s lying. Those crazy dollar amounts that she owes to Nordstrom and Bloomingdales all wrong, the $250,000 that she failed to mention on her income disclosure probably had a few dollars and cents at the end making it perfectly acceptable for Teresa to say, “Nope! Not true!”
Bravo has released a video of “extra time with Teresa and Stacie” from their appearance on Watch What Happens Live. Did anyone else notice that Teresa’s demeanor and attitude on the show were extremely poor? She barely smiled, answered with very short and abrupt answers and was seemed very unhappy, even more so than during the live airing.
Even times that it would have been appropriate to smile (even though most of us found Ben Weiner creepy) Teresa didn’t smile and she didn’t applaud for the kid. Could the rumors of Teresa’s beef with Bravo be true? Rumor has it she was upset with the show for not showing more of her book on the show. She apparently filmed many segments of testing recipes and writing the book and none of that aired on the show. (Thank you Bravo!) Additionally, she is said to be angry about the filming of her sister in law for the show who is apparently going to appear on the third season of the show.
Teresa certainly did not seem like her usual loud, obnoxious and laughing self. The only time we see her smiling and become more talkative is when Andy does bring up her book, after having brought it up three times in the half hour show, he again goes into the book discussion in depth during the extra footage.
Ben Weiner is back in this extras film and answering questions from fans. *eye roll*
Remember Teresa on WWHL with Jacqueline by her side, what a difference a few weeks makes. There is no doubt in my mind that Teresa has an issue with Bravo and Andy Cohen, there is also no doubt that Andy sucked up to Teresa, mentioning her book no less than three times and then plugging it again extensively during the after show.
Andy Cohen, I say let her walk!
Do you want to be even more sickened? Here is a clip that Bravo posted from the reunion that didn’t make it to air. Apparently what offended the majority of the Jewish community, didn’t offend Jewish Andy Cohen. Another example of Andy calling out Danielle on every little thing but letting Teresa off the hook! After airing the footage, instead of immediately going into the comment about Jews that Teresa’s daughter Gia made, Andy immediately asked Teresa about having more children, and then ended the conversation asking about Teresa’s hair. This really is disturbing! Teresa doesn’t even know what she’s talking about, how is she supposed to teach her child about the Jewish religion? Take a look…
Some of the Bravo blogs are up, not surprisingly Danielle has not posted one, for all we know her access to Bravotv.com and blog posting has already been suspended. Her last few blogs have been nonsense anyway, so I don’t think we’re missing much.
Caroline makes no excuses for her horrendous behavior on the reunion show, her constant interruptions, her screaming in Danielle’s face to “answer the question” so loud that she can’t hear that Danielle IS, in fact, answering her question. None of that was acknowledged by Mama Manzo, they all downplay the fact that Caroline was extremely agitated with Jacqueline for burying the hatchet with Danielle. Too bad Mrs. Matriarch Puppet master, you’re no longer pulling the strings, Jacqueline does have a mind of her own. We know she’s too soft for her own good, Iron Hand Jacqueline, Iron Hand.
I suppose Caroline would like nothing more than for Jacqueline to continue acting like a spoiled child, yelling at Danielle for things that are simply none of her business. Fans left Caroline dozens of comments, mostly in support but everyone knows that Caroline has many critics as well, very few of their comments were represented. A select few did call her out for her comments about Danielle’s daughters, but Bravo posted over 1,300 comments for Caroline, how dull to continuously read how awesome she is, for anyone but her!
Jacqueline’s blog is a load of malarkey as well, she goes on and on saying the same nonsense she’s said all season. More fans sucking up to her in the comments, it really is just all ridiculous!
Teresa begins to say that the rumors are so insane that she doesn’t even want to address them, then she goes on to address them. Her brother, whom she loves, and his family were invited to all of the events that Teresa held this past season that she couldn’t afford to pay for. Her brother’s photo is even in her book, according to Teresa. I wonder if her brother’s wife is in the book too. She doesn’t say.
Before she goes into whoring out her book and everything else she’s trying to sell, she says, “Oh, and I’m NOT claustrophobic”. This was in response to reports that she will suffer greatly in jail because she’s claustrophobic. Good thing Teresa, because it may be put to the test someday! A girl can dream!
Now that The Real Housewives of New Jersey is finished, Bravo seems to have nothing to put on the air on Monday night, so according to their schedule, they are re-running old episodes of The Real Housewives of Orange County, you know, the same show that NBC will also begin running from the beginning at Noon on Monday afternoon. I really wonder what NBC is thinking by doing this, the first season of RHOOC was actually pretty dull in comparison to New York, Atlanta or New Jersey. If they are trying to lure viewers to their series, wouldn’t they begin by airing some interesting series?
The Video Music Awards were held Sunday, September 12th and our very own Bethenny was in the audience with her husband Jason. She was in Los Angeles on business and she was invited to attend, it was also Jason’s birthday so I’m sure it was a treat for him to attend an event like that for the first time! Bethenny tweeted what was happening as the night went on: (as always timeline is bottom to top)

I’ve been asked to write a blog about Patti Stanger of Millionaire Matchmaker and I think it’s a great idea, I’ve written a few blurbs about her before, but look for a new blog about Patti in the next few days.
If you haven’t checked it out already, please take a look at the photos provided by Wall St Lady, her tribute to September 11. Thank you WSL for sharing those photos with us! You can view them here:
