I Hate Jill Zarin Rachel Zoe Project / Housewives News September 15, 2010

With just one episode left in the season, I found this episode to be pretty stressful for all of the cast members. The tension is building between Rachel and her husband Rodger. He is frustrated at the amount of time and attention his wife shows toward her job and fashion. Clearly, Rachel is obsessed with fashion and has a real passion for her career. I think Rodger is trying to get Rachel to have more balance in her life and enjoy some time with her husband.

As with any reality series, we see only snippets of their lives, obviously we’re seeing more of Rachel’s work and business related scenes. We have no way of knowing if the couple has dinner together on a regular basis or if they go to the movies or take vacations alone together.

What we do see is the stress on the marriage when two people want two different things. Rodger wants his wife to slow down and is ready to have a family. Rachel seems completely terrified by the very idea of a child.

Interactions between Rachel and Rodger always seem to be strained and this episode was no different. When Comedienne Amy Phillips arrived to film some Rachel Zoe spoof viral videos, Rachel and Rodger really had two completely different styles of getting the job done. Rodger is very serious and expected everyone to take it just as seriously. Rachel wanted to have a little fun with it! The tension as they filmed came through on screen with Rodger making everyone uncomfortable to the point where they didn’t seem to know what was expected of them.

The end result of the videos that you saw them filming can be seen here:



Rodger does apologize to Brad and later we see Rachel insisting that Rodger apologize to Brad. It seems as though Rachel’s team is more involved in her marriage than she is. We watch as Rodger confides in Brad about his issues with his wife.

Consistent with what we’ve seen all season, a few celebrities make guest appearances on the show. Beau Garrett, Model and actress shows up with her dog in tow for a styling session with Rachel.

Later we watch Brad head the styling team for actress Molly Sims. Somehow Brad is given incorrect information on what the client wants Molly to wear and Brad handles the problem by sending an intern back to Rachel’s studio for more clothing options. Crisis averted. I found it odd that Brad actually considered for a moment calling Rachel, I think his decision to leave her out of it was a good one.

It was a bit tedious watching Rachel and her entourage in a grocery store shopping for ingredients for a large meal that she will be cooking for her family. Rodger confides to viewers that Rachel hasn’t been inside a grocery store in years and hasn’t cooked a meal during their entire marriage. Rodger correctly points out that Rachel’s assistant doesn’t necessarily need to join their shopping outing but he does really seem to make every task more difficult because of his negativity about everything.

The meal seems to go off without a hitch, if what we heard from Rodger is true, Rachel must have had a substantial amount of help preparing the meal, but with friends and family around the table enjoying the food, in the end it was a success.

Rachel’s father makes a toast including his hope that he has another grandchild at next year’s family dinner, putting even more pressure on Rachel to have a baby.

Later Rachel talks with Joey, another Zoe assistant about having a baby and her concerns about being pregnant. She is scared that she won’t be able to carry the baby to term, she doesn’t feel that she’s strong enough. She worries about her well-being during a pregnancy, will she be sick all the time? Will she be tired all the time and unable to work, what about traveling during pregnancy? Her concerns are valid, but shouldn’t she be discussing them with her husband instead of an assistant?

Some of the comments made during the show don’t look good for this couple’s marriage. Rachel mentioned that Rodger takes the fun out of everything and Rodger added that if no baby is coming, he may not stay in this relationship.

The fact is, these scenes were filmed several months ago and as far as we know, no separation or divorce has occurred nor is there a baby on the way. Things like this tend to feed into the impression that more drama is created for the purposes of the show and maybe things aren’t really all that they seem to be on television.

Next week’s final episode looks to be full of more tension in Rachel’s marriage, watch what happens.

Teresa Giudice Bankruptcy

Still no official filing by the Giudice camp on the trustee’s documents alleging that the couple failed to include assets and income on their original bankruptcy filing. You can find that document here:


Apparently Teresa and Joe Giudice have 30-days to file a response, hopefully their attorney is working fast and furious to come up with excuses for all of these omissions, do you suppose 30-days is enough time to come up with enough lies? I wonder if they’ll request an extension from the courts? Hopefully the Giudice’s have learned that ignoring it won’t make it go away. Sort of like Teresa’s sister-in-law, she doesn’t seem to be going away. Reports continue to come in that Teresa’s brother and his wife are filming scenes for The Real Housewives of New Jersey, the rest of the cast is scheduled to begin filming soon as well. Bravo hasn’t’ released a class list yet, but we hope that Teresa won’t be late for school as we can’t wait to see her sparing with her sister-in-law, Melissa and her brother Joe.

Jill Zarin’s Summer Vacation

Jill finally took some advice from her public relations people and spent the last half of her summer laying low, but maintaining a presence on Twitter, Facebook and her web site. She was a bit of a show off but talked a lot about her daughter going away to college, being on vacation, her time in the Hamptons and other dull activities but always sure to show just how fabulous her life is!
She is still pushing that awful book on fans, sales have been dismal for Jill Zarin and her family with this publication. I wish she would just realize that she hasn’t put compiled and put out a “reference guide” for life that people will refer to in their everyday lives as she hoped. With poor writing and sometimes downright bad advice, the book has gotten some really horrible reviews.
Sure, we know that some Housewives fans have pretended to read the book an posted negative reviews on Amazon.com just because they don’t like the woman. Taking those out of the equation, there are dozens of legitimate negative reviews from people who have truly read the book, they provide examples of some of the writings and explain in detail why this book is an utter failure.

Even without Jill’s very own glowing review of her own book, to be fair, there are a few legitimate positive reviews as well, however, reading through the majority of the positive reviews, many are from friends and family of Jill’s. We read the transcript of Jill asking a radio personality to write a review of the book and when the answer was “no, it wouldn’t be ethical”, Jill proceeded to ask the radio personality to write the review under a fake name or ask her boyfriend to write it. Given that, how many positive reviews can be true readers who enjoyed this book? How many people did Jill Zarin browbeat to write her a positive review? We may never know.
While Bethenny’s book hit the New York Times Bestseller list again, eight months after its release, Jill’s book continues to fall in sales and its Amazon rating is off the charts, failing miserably.

Jill has traveled extensively over the summer, she’s spent time in Los Angeles, Florida, London and Australia. Endless interviews and public appearances in order to maintain some visibility during the off season, she appeared on several shows including Wendy Williams, Today Show and some local New York news and information shows. While Jill announced to fans that she would be a regular on LXTV in New York, she hasn’t been seen on the air after her first few appearances.

Jill tried to make the world believe that she was filming RHONY season four already by having her assistant release a photo of Jill with her dog Ginger and cameras filming. In reality Jill was filming a show for Animal Planet about her dog but was sure to let the rumors of her filming the Bravo series RHONY without correcting anyone.

Apparently Bravo was unhappy with the housewife and her antics causing her to, as per her usual, blame her assistant who released the photo and ban the guy from Twitter indefinitely. This stunt could have been a message to Bravo that Jill is anxious to return, with fans assuming she was already filming, she could have been trying to force Bravo’s hand.

Still no final word on the cast of RHONY, contracts may be signed sealed and delivered but that information is rarely released by the cast member or by Bravo but typically the cast will begin to mention that they are filming here and there.

Plenty of reports have indicated that all of the cast members have been invited back, we know that Kelly is “honored” to be asked back so she’ll most likely sign on the dotted line if she hasn’t already. I would be shocked if Alex didn’t return, she has already indicated her desire to return. Sonja, Ramona and Luann all indicated on the reunion show that they would like to return.
Bethenny and a “Bravo Executive” (could it be Andy Cohen?) seem to have a difference of opinion on whether or not Bethenny will be returning for season four of the Real Housewives of New York.

Bravo’s side of the story…


Bethenny’s side of the story…


Personally I was a little embarrassed for Bethenny in that interview, the really fake smiling in between questions was a bit much. She may have been nervous since she doesn’t do a lot of awards shows.

Remember during the honeymoon portion of Bethenny Getting Married when they spoke very briefly about moving to Los Angeles? I wonder if the hint about the Hoppy family moving to Los Angeles could turn out to be reality. But, if Bethenny is still contractually obligated to season four of the Real Housewives of New York, that could certainly hold up any plans to move to LaLa Land.
That also begs the question, will Bravo film Bethenny’s show from Los Angeles? Maybe the next season of Bethenny Getting Married will be called Bethenny Moves To California.

Until Next Time….

    I still think Rachel was dressed like Sam Kinison last night. 😉 I have to say I lost interest halfway through and went to bed. I like your recap though 🙂

  2. Had Enough! says:

    So. Zoe. Here’s the thing. It is 100% chrystal-clear that Rachel is not interested in having a baby or being a mommy. Apart from health issues, it is obvious that she is not interested. Which is fine. And she should say so, and then if Roger feels he wants a baby so much, then he has a choice to make.

    No one should have children if they aren’t into it. It is a huge, 18-yr-minimum commitment.

    • Sha2000 says:

      I can’t believe her age, she’s attractive but looks so much older.

      • Savannah111 says:

        Yes, she really does look alot older, I was actually shocked at her age I really really was..

        I’ll tell you guys something, I’m being very serious about this..
        3 years ago almost to todays date I was on life support I was in the hospital after a long long battle with always being sick heart burn to horrible to even describe and sick throwing up started and just continued to get worse. I of course went to the doctor and having a lot of stress in my life I didnt slow down heed warnings until to late, but I actually was diagnosied with having acid reflex was put on medication and the doctor took blood when I went to see him, I got a call 2 days later his nurse told me that I had to come by the office to get results and pick up prescriptions they found alot of bacteria in my blood.. I was put on 10 types of antibotics a day for 14 days… I started to feel better and then it came back the pain was so bad this time intense and I kept on working working my husband and I went to south beach on vacation and I was really starting to get concerned because I started throwing up a lot like even water, I was drinking as much gaterade as possible. We got back after I just had such a bad time it was just so awful words can;t began to describe how sick I was actually trying to hide from my family until I just had to be told at work your sick go home etc,, I did. I kept calling the specialist I started seeing she kept changing medications on me nothing would work. She scheduled an aultrasound my husband and I went to the hospital for the procedure and I think we both knew something was so wrong I was white to pale green it was just not right, I walked in and went to sign in and just dropped I passed out right there, they got me in a wheelchair and ran to the emergency room with me and of course I was admitted. My blood pressure very very low I had no potassium in my system I had thrown up so much over a long period of time.. What they found was ULCERS I had 2 they both purferated and spilled in my system. I was in a lot of danger and they couldnt do surgery because of my potassium problem they had to drip 7 bags in my system and let me tell you it BURNS like fire it was so bad I couldnt take it I’m a grown woman I’m 45 years old and my husband had left we at that point didnt know that I was close to being toxic to the point of death, but I kept telling the nurse that I was going to take the IV out because it was burning and I couldnt take it anymore. She slowed the drip and then she also dripped something else that was supposed to cut the burning down but it wasn’t much relief. This poor nurse held my hand and she said honey you need surgery but the doctor cant do it until you get your potassium and blood pressure are both up. I was screaming and I told her to call him and either he does it now or I would walk LOL like I could I was so sick. They called my husband and told to come to the hospital I was in trouble he thought they said I was causing trouble he knew I was pitching a fit about burning he came and they were ready to wheel me in to surgery. They had given me something that calmed me so I would stop fighting them that night but never got 7 bags in but I was getting worse and my husband was upset that they didnt tell him I was in danger of dieing. It was a 16 hour surgery they told my family that they almost lost me 2 times but I was a fighter. I was in the hospital for almost 2 months I had to learn how to walk again I had so many horrible nightmares I guess from morphine, I was hooked to machines feeding tubes machine that breathed for me tube down my throat up my nose, rear and bladder.. I developed phenmonia 2 times while there, they started calling me the miracle… I didnt have stitching I had a vac system I have 2 grown boys and they couldnt hardly stand to see me that way, my poor mother and husband went through so much with me. Even when I left the hospital I didnt think I would ever walk again it was so hard I had a walker my mother whos retired came to my house to take care of me while my husband worked. It was hell I would never wish on anyone, I had nurses that came out to change that vac system on me everyother day and sleeping the most difficult thing to do, with that big vac with suction on my stomach. One year later another ulcer this time atleast it was caught early but the doctor removed half my stomach to cut down the risk of cancer because bateria can lead to cancer. It wasnt as bad as the first time thats for sure but not without its problems.. ANYWAY I do have a point and here it is. If she doesnt stop and take a break it could develop into something more serious than she can deal with. I bet shes not 100 pounds and her body couldnt go through an ordeal like I did, I believe in the 1st season she went to the doctor and she had some acid reflex she has to stay on top of it and take the medications if her doctor put her on it. The other thing is her eating I never see her eat nothing or very little. If its because it makes her sick she’s heading down a dangerous road. OR it could be so she can wear sample 0 sizes. I know she loves what she does and its her passion but shes totally consumed by it to a dangerous degree I know I’ve been there. I choose no longer to get myself stressed like that ever again its not worth it.. I noticed in the previews on the next show she goes to the doctor and they want to take blood and she doesnt want to give it.. It;s so important that she does…

          I’m glad you are here today to share your story.
          You are very lucky indeed. And stubborn it seems – I say this with kindness. I’m quite stubborn myself sometimes and private about health concerns.

        • Ali's Mom says:

          God Bless you. You have been to hell and back haven’t you? I have from time to time stomach issues due to stress and you taught me to really pay attention to it seriously, and take my medicine. Thanks! Wish you wonderful health in the future.

        • OneMoreinBoston says:

          Oh my goodness! You poor thing! You went to hell and back didn’t you?
          It’s interesting how women really don’t heed the warning signals their bodies give them. And of course you’re right, if anything like that happened to poor Rachel, she would probably keel right over.
          I’m so glad you taking better care of yourself.

        • Blue Sky says:

          Savannah111, thank God you survived your ordeal. So everyone should heed acid reflux, it is serious. It can lead to cancer, because the esophagus gets eaten up by the acid, and it is horrible. Typical of women to ignore symptoms, we all are guilty of that. Women’s heart attack pains are different from men’s – even jaw pain can be one of the early signs of a heart attack. Thank you for sharing, and glad you are doing better!

    • Olivia says:

      I have never watched this show but it becomes clear that it more than likely has reached its peak when a couple invites a camera crew into their home as they discuss their “dilemma” about whether or not to have baby.

      I mean, don’t we all do this when the occasion arises? Invite the neighbors, friends, families, associates, and the nation as a whole to witness our “angst” about going ahead with baby talk?

      Oops, forgot those dang ratings.

      • Sha2000 says:

        I can’t watch for more than a few minuets. As much as I love seeing some of the clothing, I can’t stand hearing that woman. I agree Olivia; I thought just today why do they have cameras rolling in their bedroom?

        • TT in OC says:

          Me too. I used to watch it here and there, but I just can’t stand the way Rachel talks and dresses. Everything seems dramatise a thousand times. I also don’t like Brad’s whinning. Brad, I don’t care if you are gay, you are still a grown man, so act like one.

          • Sha2000 says:

            RZ actually sounds like some gay men I know (not an ounce of disrespect intended to the gay male community), but she sounds like a boy trying to sound like a girl.

      • Adgirl says:

        Or to film us peeing on a pregnancy stick. TMI!

    • TLM says:

      The first video posted by Lynn actually was done last year. I think it’s only the second one that was done with the cooperation of Rachel and Rodger. Amy Phillips is a genius, and an amazing talent. She does many other impressions besides Rachel Zoe, all amazing. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TBKh7J2whsE Check it out!!!

  3. Sha2000 says:

    Hi Lynn, have you thought about contacting the new NJ housewife & getting an interview for this blog? I bet her contract doesn’t allow interviews yet, but you never know. Just thought I’d put that idea out here.

  10. Bobbi says:

    Admittedly, I do not understand how these things work. I am confused. If I am understanding this correctly, Bethenny was the only cast member of RHONY contractually committed to the fourth season? She obviously hasn’t signed a new contract with them for the next season, but as far as we know neither have any of the housewives. Maybe it was a condition of her BGM contract that she had to participate in the fourth season if there was one?

    Sure would appreciate it if someone that might have some insight would provide it!

    • Had Enough! says:

      We don’t know how long those contracts were for. The NJ contracts were apparently for three years. It is possible that the NY contracts were for four, or perhaps 2, and then renewed for 2. In either case, the NY contracts would cover a fourth season.

      I am guessing that this idea of signing for another season means that the contracts give either party an out but that if they re-sign, it is on the same terms. It is also possible that it gives only the network and the media company an out (say the show is canceled…) but the housewives can only get out for certain specified reasons such as illness.

      • DWandM says:

        I had the same question about the contract. Thank you for your explaination it reads true / common sense.

    The good news the Gorilla’s r spending at least $10 000 /mo. that could go towards the

  12. I bust out laughing when Rachel said she was 38. 38 my hind end! And the grocery shopping scene had me on the floor—you can’t tell me she didn’t set that up to “show” everyone that Amy Phillips was way off base. Too bad she only proved Amy was dead.on.

    As for Rodger “stressing” everyone out–it was like he was trying to herd cats. Not one person paid any attention to him, not even Rachel (Rodger, dear, there’s Clue #2), who went so far as to talk down to him in front of her staff & the camera crew he had hired! I think he was rightfully put off because the longer the shoot took, the more he had to pay the camera crew. Isn’t that why Rachel wanted him in charge of her business–so he could keep track of the money?

    And I call BS on Rachel “cooking” that meal by herself. She did, at most, the salad. It’s obvious she doesn’t know how to cook & why she didn’t have it catered is beyond me. If you’ve never boiled water before, you darn sure don’t “volunteer” to cook a holiday meal that includes turkey, especially if you’re going to get all “girly” about sticking your hand up its butt to clean it out & season it.

    • Sha2000 says:

      Well this says she was born in 71′

      I don’t like to comment on specifics of peoples features (unless its a complement) but whats with those mouth wrinkles? I have some tiny ones above my lip from my lips shrinking & my making my disdain face (yes, I’ve caught myself & coined a name for it), but mine are tiny & I’m 9 years older! I think she too makes those faces & messed up her mouth, there must be botox in other places because its so smooth. She’s attractive & she really should get those old lady lines fixed.

      • Adgirl says:

        She’s had a lot of work done on her forehead. he nickname use to be raisin face (perez maybe?) I guess the cosmetic improvement ended at her nose.

        • nathania says:

          I watch this occasionally at work and I saw the video of them from the honeymoon supposedly 12 years ago. I dont get it, she is the most aged person on tv for her real age, (I, too, blanched at ’38’ I’m 42 and I don’t have that going on on my face). She certainly has access to all the stuff the housewives do as far as surgery, etc. I don’t get it, most of them are her age or older…from the looks of that before picture it looks like some hard partying and serious drugs in addition to smoking and too much tanning.

        • Quincy IL says:

          I like the before nose. Can she have the surgeon take it back to the first nose?

      • I posted a link a while ago where her DOB was sometime in the 60s, either just before or just after the year I was born. And I look nowhere near as old as Rachel. So if she really is only 38, the only thing I have to say is, well, damn.

    • OneMoreinBoston says:

      There was big controversy about her age, because she claimed to be a triple Virgo.
      But if her birthday of September 1, 1971 and if this is accurate, then her moon sign is in business-minded Capricorn.

      from HollyScoop:


      “Zoe has been ranting on her new Bravo show, “The Rachel Zoe Project,” that she’s so anal because she’s a triple Virgo. In astrology terms, that means she was born in the sign of Virgo, her rising sign is a Virgo, and her moon sign is a Virgo. Well, our experts say that isn’t possible if Zoe is 37 and was born on Sept. 1, 1971, as she claims. In fact, says our pro, she’d actually be five to 10 years older than that if she were indeed a Triple-V.”

      ““[It] isn’t possible if Zoe is 37 and was born on Sept. 1, 1971 […] In fact, says our pro, she’d actually be five to 10 years older than that if she were indeed a Triple-V. So either Zoe’s fibbing, or she’s just starry-eyed when it comes to her sign.”

  13. jen says:

    B was listed at US Magazine as one of top NY style stars!!! 🙂 Go B!

    I agree with you Bobbi- I’m confused too…How is noone contractally obligated aside from Bethenny? Unless they whole “who’s coming back?” thing is just a way to draw interest and the contracts are really signed for larger persiods, like 3 years.

    • Need a Hobby says:

      The HW’s may indeed have multiyear contracts, but part of the deal is that the producers/Bravo are under no obligation to have them come back for another season or even appear in the final cut after the show is filmed. (Jen Gilbert was supposed to be one of the HWs, filmed all season, and only bits of her remained in the final NYC cut.) So the who is going to be asked to return is a real thing.

      However, if the producers/Bravo want them back, and the contract is still in force, then the HW’s have contractual obligations. There must be out clauses in some circumstances since Dina quit. (Remember she was talking that they were in danger, there were acts of vandalism, etc? Suggesting that it was related to Danielle IIRC?) And maybe they also can buy out their remaining contract at a price.

      The contract is all in favor of the producers/network. But in return they get a “platform” for themselves to build a “brand,” and have new opportunities. Or just boost their egos and desire for “fame.”

  14. Katie says:

    I hope that Bravo has a large fund in place for the intensive therapy that the kids on these shows may need. I know Jaq spoke about Danielle’s girls being ridiculed but I imagine that the Giudice girls will get it bad from their peers as
    well. These are tough economic times and if the Giudices are not held accountable for their financial choices, they may feel a backlash similar to the one directed at   AIG. 

    Assley needed therapy long before this show, but she had certainly created quite a legacy for herself by acting like a complete jackass. 

    The part that I find most disconcerting are the thousands of comments made about the behavior and appearance of many of these kids on these shows.
    It is bad enough that they will read the multitudes of comments about their parents. That in itself could be damaging. Recently, there was an article on the huffington post about Bethenny’s post baby body. They quoted her saying “taste everything, eat nothing.” http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/08/18/bethenny-frankel-dons-bik_n_686180.html
    This statememt was taken out of context but the comments on the page are vicious. Many suggest that she starved herself during the pregnancy or didn’t want the baby. 
    All of these comments are public indefinitely.
    I hope most of them are never seen by the kids.

    • JenD says:

      How was the comment taken out of context? She said it and everyone knows that she always had body issues?
      She said during the first season and in her book, taste everything, eat nothing. Those words are straight
      from the anerexic rule book, trust me i worked with them before. If we gonna bash the HW’S we need to
      bash them equally, please again explain how it was taking out of context.

      • Jen says:

        In the book her statement means you can try a bit of whatever it if you want but it doesn’t mean you gave to eat all of it or gorge

        In the article they phrased it as if she literally advocates eating nothing at all, hence they took the statement out of the context within in the book …..

        • Katie says:

          Thanks Jenn. Exactly. Her book isn’t about depriving yourself or dieting. If you crave something have some just don’t eat the entire box, or find a healthy substitution. For instance using applesauce instead of butter when baking.

      • Uh, I’ve actually read that book, & there’s nothing in there about “throwing everything back up” in it. It’s good advice, quite frankly, & I have used it quite a bit since I read the book.

    how about Hoppy in Cali?

    I don’t like Rachel Zoe – there – I said it – watching her treat her husband so badly – in public – let alone on the air – was awful – hopefully behind the scenes they have had heart to heart talks and this is all for “dramatic effect” because if this is their true real life interaction, something tells me there will not be any interaction in the near future –
    and while I’m at it – I don’t like Brad either – he is a whiny little drama queen – I actually liked Taylor and don’t blame her one bit for being so unhappy – she was with Rachel for a long time, was promised things she never got and then was dumped for a guy that can out walk a woman in heels – and a whiny one at that – no way to treat your “jewel” there Rachel – Taylor had to show Brad how to do his job when he was supposed to be assisting her – and then in a flash, the inept assistant is the new bestie for Rachel leaving Taylor to do all things that Brad was supposedly hired to do – not saying what she did was right either, but I can understand where she is coming from –

    • JenD says:

      I agree she should have never talked down to her hubby. However, i think Brad has a soul, and he can back
      away from the fashion world whenever he pleases, basically he is real and know when to stop and how to read people.

    • error404 says:

      I’m suspicious.

      Brad is like whatever that guy with the hair jell is on BGM? (I’ve forgotten his name already!) Yeah, it must have been annoying for inexperienced jell guy to get all of the tv time and all of B’s joke time while long suffering Julie went about being her usual excellent assistant self, but unlike Taylor, Julie has class and the jell kid showed himself up, so there you have it.

      Zoe and Bravo may have provided ample rope, but Taylor hung herself, and did it spectacularly.

      • Quincy IL says:

        They would have pressed charges if there was a real case. Honestly, if there was missing money,
        Rodger would have forced the issue.

    • I was snickering because I just *KNEW* their inner dialogue was “If Taylor were here, this wouldn’t have happened.” Poor Brad, getting the “wrong” information. Given the fact that he only pays attention to his reflection in the mirror, or his Blackberry, I bet he got the “wrong” information because he wasn’t paying attention. After all, that’s what Taylor was for, so why would he ever have to learn that skill? I bet he wanted to blame Taylor sooooooo bad it almost killed him. That’s what he gets for being a snot-nosed narcissistic whiny drama queen.

  16. error404 says:

    The tension between Rach and Roge is painful. Why would they film that? It’s like the story of a breakup.

    I know I’m in the minority here, but I think ROger is right.

    1. Just because it’s fashion doesn’t mean it has to be chaos and stress 24/7-365. That’s just how RZ does fashion.

    I’m so glad they showed her going to the grocery store because we all got to see how the Diva can’t even buy a can of soup without acting like it’s experimental brain surgery on the next heir to the throne. It’s amazing her marriage lasted as long as it did/does.

    2. If you don’t want to have a kid, just be honest about it. Kids aren’t for everyone and frankly, people who don’t want kids would do us all a service by stop having them.

    But it’s insulting to have to listen to all the bs. She’s too busy: gee, too bad women who are far more famous and successful than you had kids. Next excuse… She’s too old. Um, gee honey, maybe if you had the kid 5 years ago like your hubby wanted you wouldn’t have to stress so much about being too old to have one. Yes, it’s tough and yes, it’s painful when it doesn’t work out, but people still do it. That is, people who really want it still do it.

    Luckily, her husband is a guy. If she had just been honest and said a decade ago “I’m not into kids”, but now he’s invested 10 years with a woman who says she wants kids, but just won’t commit to having them. I wonder how soon the next wife will get up the duff?

  17. lillybee says:

    Michaele Salahi claims to have had multiple sclerosis for 17 years and has been keeping it secret. She claims that she has been keeping it a secret because she didn’t want to be pitied.

    • Sha2000 says:

      So they mind people feeling empathy because they have a disease, but have no problem with the public thinking they are fool’s for crashing state events. Wow.

      • TLM says:

        I don’t want to sound cruel, and if Michaele really is ill, I feel badly for her. It just seems like her revealing this comes at a time when public sentiment over the Salahis is at an all-time low, and it seems awfully opportune to gain sympathy. Doctors have confirmed that MS neither makes you skinny, nor are there dietary restrictions, and keeping weight “stable” isn’t the same as being underweight, which she clearly is. Couple this with the wishy-washy stories about the White House incident, the winery, and the accusation about Mary’s daughter, and I find it hard to believe anything the Salahis say. As I said, if she really is sick, I am sorry for her, but I remain skeptical for the moment.

    • MAMAZ says:

      So why is she telling now?

      • nathania says:

        so she can be pitied by a significant number of people, throw events supposedly for the MS charities and keep the money, probably.

  18. ChicagoBurbsGirl says:

    Uhm, okay…to the “St Lady” posting on this site – wtf are you talking about? Is that english??

    Watching this show last night just made me sad. Baby decision aside, Rodger is continually treated like a second class citizen, and their marriage seems to take a backseat to virtually everything else in their lives. Rachel needs to prioritize – marriage is a lifelong commitment (or it should be), and no fashion show or Oscar dress crisis should ever come before one’s spouse.

    • Sha2000 says:

      Hey, be nice, she’s a sweetheart.

      • MAMAZ says:

        We don’t attack other posters on here. WSL has a learning disabilty. In spite of that she has managed to become successful in both her business and personal life. We enjoy her comments. She is a respected member of the I Hate Jill Zarin community.

    • OneMoreinBoston says:

      Hey! You’re being a jerk.

      If you’re too obtuse to understand what WSL is saying, than pipe down, or ask her nicely what she means.

      wtf to you too

  19. Adgirl says:

    I have concluded that Rachel and Rodger are “best friends” not married in the conventional sense.
    I don’t feel any sexual spark around them. Maybe she isn’t interested, maybe he doesn’t go to her “church”, but whatever the problem is they are not in sync as a married couple.
    Stress about differing approaches to tasks aside, I do think they generally get along on a day to day basis so they continue together. More like roommates.

    • Pantry Viewer says:

      I agree, Adgirl – I just don’t feel it, that they are a couple in the true sense of the word ;0) And I do not believe she is 39. Nope, I don’t.

    • truelifediva says:

      I’ve often wondered how he could be sexually attracted to a woman that looks like the crypt keeper. Compare and contrast how Jason acts towards Bethenny, he wants her even when she’s swollen and gross in her 3rd trimester. I see NO sexual chemistry between Rachel and Roger. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want to see her straddle him like Teresa did Juicy, but c’mon!

  20. Need a Hobby says:

    Ramona says B will be on RHONY for a little bit, and the other regular HW’s have been “renewed:”

    “Bethenny will come on a little bit. We need a Bethenny moment,” Ramona Singer tells PEOPLE about the show’s upcoming fourth season, adding that the other women –- Alex McCord, Kelly Bensimon, Jill Zarin, Sonja Morgan and Countess LuAnn de Lesseps -– “have been renewed.”

    And: “One or two new castmates” will be joining the crew, says Singer -– but that doesn’t necessarily mean there will be more drama.

    “I think we’re going to have some good energy,” she said on Sunday while sitting front row at the Rebecca Taylor show during New York Fashion Week. “And I’m not going to let any bad energy come into the show.”

    • Quincy IL says:

      I enjoyed it greatly.

      Jeff is the verbally abusive husband who brings home flowers after a rampage that destroys all self esteem in his beloved wife. I see those men and avoid them like the plague.

      I love the way Jeff designs and the fact that he wants to be perfect in an imperfect world. Why can’t the construction workers work on Mon. and Tues…or early morning. The job really wasn’t that big. My brother and I could have done it in a few days.

      • Tootsie says:

        I watched his earlier seasons but am up to here with his horrible behavior. He treats Jenni like a piece of dog dirt, when if fact, she is the glue that keeps him together. I hope she gets her break and leaves him to his own distruction. Enough of forgiving him because he has OCD, he’s a pain in the a$$ and mean.

        • jillz68 says:

          I know someone that has met Jeff, Jenny, etc (after season 1). He found Jeff to be super nice and he even called my friends mother since she was a fan. Jeff’s entourage was very rude and generally not very nice. I was not there but I trust
          my friend. He has a business that works with celebrities of every caliber so it isn’t like he was star struck.
          He is also somewhat of a celebrity himself.

          • Quincy IL says:

            He is nice to customers too. I think he can’t handle stress and vents on his employees who really don’t deserve that treatment.

      • Blue Sky says:

        Egad Quincy, you build/remodel houses too? You are “Wonder Woman” to me, medical expert (yeah, Q works in a hospital & it sounds like she has a doctorate – ph. D – in biochemistry), you know about gardening/horses/farming and you can remodel a house!

        • Adgirl says:

          Jenni was putting her 2 cents on the Cole fireplace too.

          I think Jenni was out of place making contradictory statements to clients. She was saying things to please the customer when if will only piss them off more when things keep going sideway. In a fashion she was trying to make herself look good or important.

          It just creates uncertainty for the clients and they will take it out on Jeff.

        • Quincy IL says:

          That’s how my father and mother got ahead financially. They had 7 kids. They bought really run down properties. Everyone worked on the house in the evening and weekends. When we would finish a house, my dad would announce that the taxes were too high and they were looking for another dump. LOL

  21. icantstandthetoxicity says:

    Teresa recently announced that she was coming out with a new make-up line. Is Gretchen talking about Teresa? We all know Teresa is a copycat. This is a tweet from Gretchen:

    GretchenRossi : I think its so funny when people copy exactly what your doing and they think u don’t notice!! Seriously people get your own ideas!!
    about 1 hour ago via ÜberTwitter

    • icantstandthetoxicity says:

      *I meant to say makeup not make-up* LOL

    • Quincy IL says:

      Gretchen, will this cut into your exclusive Mexican make-up line sales?

    • Need a Hobby says:

      Like Gretchen invented “celebs” having makeup, jewelry, fashion, etc lines. So original.

      Reportedly Gretchen’s skin care/makeup line whatever, like many others, consists of buying from a wholesaler and slapping on a label.

    • jillz68 says:

      You could tell T was looking to sell makeup since she was wearing ALL of her product at once this season. She wore MUCH
      more makeup this season than last. Maybe she was trying to cover her stress but I think she was using the show as a
      commercial for her product line. Does she have just one original thought in that head of hers??

    • boston02127 says:

      Teresa is also coming out with a perfume line. (probably b.o. & garlic)

  22. SavingGrace says:

    I wonder what Andy Cohen thinks about this:


    The Salamis are at again this time attacking Bravo. How rich is this???

    I bet that Tiki and Miki will soon sue Bravo for defamation of character. I wonder if we could sue Bravo for Inflation of characters? Who were Jill Zarin, Teresa, Dina, Kelly Bensimon , Danielle, Gretchen before Bravo came along, blew up their heads, and somehow bespelled us into watching these housewives shows?

    I know, I don’t have to watch BUT I just can’t help myself 🙂

      About this mag article, Jenn Sale tweeted:

      • Jen says:

        Oh 😦 ….. For a second I was excited, ok then I won’t buy it but I still think he did/does cheat

        Thanks for saving me $$$ 🙂

    • Had Enough! says:

      Turns out that is just a teaser on the cover. As noted much earlier today, the article itself says nothing of the kind. And note it says “heartbreaking REPORTS of Joe’s love child, past infidelities, and moving out.”

    Cancer free.
    PTL we got a still cancer free report.

    I am sure

    Question…..isn’t RZ’s season awful short? Next week is the final?? Seems like they just started.

  26. JKW says:

    I read the blogs but don’t post much but here we go. The Zoe’s are boring. If Roger is so bored and hates these events…then stay home. No reason he had to go shopping with the entourage….which was over the top anyway. It isn’t like he is with her or they have free time. She works and makes drams…he bitches….they argue…go do something you like to do and meet later. I think he was right on the mtg with the comedian. He set it up and I am sure they are being paid for their time. You don’t pay people to have a good time but to get their jobs done. I think Brad was disrepectful and it ended up with Rachel and Brad against Roger. She brought Roger in because she isn’t good with the business side. She needs to respect him and bitch at him in private not in front of everyone. Then again they are both immature. They whine and complain to each other and to everyone around them. I can’t imagine the baby disasters they would have. Oh my God, Roger…we can’t buy diapers ahead of time we have to wait until 24 hrs before we need them !!! And his hair drives me nuts.

    • Blue Sky says:

      Welcome JKW! I agree, RZ is boring this season. I miss Taylor, she was a hoot. Without her it just isn’t as fun for me.

      • JKW says:

        Hi Blue Sky…I miss Taylor too ! Brad gets on my nerves very quickly. I couldn’t imagine working with him on a daily basis. The other girl ( I can’t even remember her name ) has the personality of a rock.

        • LuAnn says:

          I think I am in the minority here. I really did NOT like Taylor. Wearing sunglasses indoors all the time. Whining more than Rachael and Brad put together. If she didn’t like her job she should have quit a lot sooner.

  27. Wall St Lady says:

    Back to Fashion & Beauty

    Miss B made the Best Dressed List !
    She really deserves it !
    (I am slightly being converted)

    TV shows r showing a new freezing Fat procedure for $3 to $6000 per scession. You need 2 scessions.
    Don’t waste ur $$.
    I was a guinea pig & tried it for free.
    The tape measure said I lost an inch but I didn’t see it. It didn’t hurt & I may do another FREE secession.
    Most Dr.s can get a $250 000 machine on trial for 6weeks to test out to see if they want to rent or buy in installments.

    I will vote no for my Dr/friend but possibly my fat cells love me tooooo
    Much to leave.

    • TEB says:

      WSL- what’s not to love? 🙂

    • Quincy IL says:

      There are some commercials where they measure women and they put a suit on them that hoists the fat up into the breats. When they measure, the tape is loose in the pre girdle and tight in the post girdle. I have watched the girl measuring several times.

      I remember a “Sex and the City” episode when Samantha had fat taken from her rear and injected into her face. She couldn’t sit or smile.

      • Kat says:

        “Samantha had fat taken from her rear and injected into her face. She couldn’t sit or smile.”

        I bet she felt like a butthead. 😉

        • Quincy IL says:


          I think it must have been a joke, but then if they freeze fat cells, they might harvest them and transplant. Rejection would not be an issue since if was from Sam’s own rear end.

            I watched those derby shows on tv. They would have themed costumes. To update the look, we could ask Rachel Zoe for help. It can’t be too risque’ though because when we are skating, things tend to shift and we don’t want to end up like Danielle.

      I went to NYC a few years ago at the 4th of July time…. Even the Broadway stars were gone and I had never heard of any of the fill ins.

      I am destined to never see any famous people.

      I take that back… I know Stephen Spielberg and saw him several times here in Quincy. His uncle in law..Kate Capshaw’s uncle lived here. Stephen and his family were buying popcorn before they went into a movie. He was always very nice to people and would sign autographs. Kate was nice too.

    Kelly !!

    Should we worry ,unlike Mrs Gorilla,
    she actually stalks & Hits !

      WSW—I thought the same thing! Smelly looking Kelly!

      Hey Kelly—If your bored, go glue some dead fathers on some fishing lures.

    • Quincy IL says:

      Those words do seem to pop up in Kelly’s tweets fairly often.

      When you sign up, there is an email address. Can Lynn read that address?

      Is it possible that Kelly has an interest in us? She’s way up there and we are way down here. Surely, she has no time for us.

      • Kat says:

        If you register then Lynn has a valid email address and registered or not when you post your IP address is logged.
        But to post without registering you can make up an email address as the validity is not checked.

        • Quincy IL says:

          Now, the question is… Is Kelly Bensimon smart enought to give a fake email address?

          • Kat says:

            Chit with my directions probably. My bad.
            I see now had I not posted, your questions might have instilled a bit of fear and paranoid respect in the mighty troll.

        • TT in OC says:

          See Dieana, we are learning new things! All you need is a good attitude and an open mind.

        • You can give all the fake addresses you want to, via gmail, hotmail ect. but the IP address will still be valid regardless of whatever address you use. There really is no such thing as “anonymous.”

          • Kat says:

            That is the digital truth. 😉

          • MickeyMouth says:

            You can go through a proxy server. There are ways to trace that as well but you would need the help of the ISPs and most won’t give you squat without a subpeona.

            • Kat says:

              I’ve read VPNs are effective.

            • Quincy IL says:

              This is true. My son is in computer security. He designs for Fortune 500 companies and governments. He told me that there are sites that you can go through that whip you around the internet then hit someone’s email. Normal people won’t bother to find you, but people with access to the servers can. Everything that you write on your keyboard can come back to haunt you. However the servers for the net have an information dump after a specific time period and that will make finding the bad guy harder.

              The easiest thing to do is to cut off the bad guys so they can’t bother you. It’s the cheapest thing to do too.

            • I would have mentioned proxy servers but didn’t think our trolls were smart enough to use it. Lol

    • TT in OC says:

      I don’t think it’s Kelly because OUTRAGEOUS was spelled correctly. Can Kelly do that?

    How wrong you are. It’s 7:10 PM now and I’m just sitting down since 5:30 AM and I still have about 3 hours of homework to do. Personally I’m happy to be able to sit down for a while to chill and chat with the people here and laugh at the tongue and cheek comments. I’m wondering why you need to read all the posts on a Blog that’s called “I Hate Jill Zarin” to realize it’s not your type of blog? Don’t like it move on.

        Hi Everyone… I am with Boston… been up since 430 at work since 615–school starts at 715— took Mom to CVS for free flu shot– after the 25 mile drive home from school–cooked her dinner–cleaned kitchen and now have 2 hours of lesson plans to write. I am just sitting here reading the comments almost too tired to type. I love all you guys and love the humor..sitting here cause I am too tired to get up!

        To the meanies..if you don’t like it..don’t lurk and don’t comment. This is a nice place with wonderful, gracious, kind and generous people. I appreciate you all!

        And a head’s up. A friend from HS..graduated “70… Her son is on Survivor tonite… Chase Rice…he is 24 and an amazing kid. Keep your fingers crossed.

    Hey Kelly !
    If this is u I met u at one of the Koch brother’s homes at a Hampton s’ party. U arrived & made ur entrance by doing a cartwheel. This was b4 u became a reality star. Everyone said who in the HELL is that. I was told u wrote for a tiny rag sheet & that u were so stupid u didn’t understand it wasn’t part of the NY Post.
    I was with men who like our host are VERY successful $$$$ men so u came over to “gush”. U completely ignored me but smiled & said a big HI to my handsome husband.
    Right b4 u left; doing somersaults comemorating ur departure for many other parties w/ur writing pad,
    U came back by our group for a big good by to everyone but me.
    U were sooooooo charming.

    Thank for visiting the LynnFam
    We don’t ignore the competition.
    U & your dog
    R always welcome
    As long as u don’t peeeeeee
    On anyone !

    • Quincy IL says:

      Sounds like a pattern of ignoring very attractive women line our WSL and Bethenny.

      Do you think Kelly does cartwells so that men can see her underpants? She seems to have a desire to let men in gas stations look at her naked body.

  41. boston02127 says:

    Quincy–Since you posted the recipe for that yummy smoothie I am addicted to them. I found a web site and it has recipes for all kinds of smoothies. The more I make them the more creative I’m getting with them. I’ve been making veggie ones.
    I don’t eat well and feel good that I’ve been getting fruit and veggies in. Since I’ve been drinking them I’ve been feeling better and less tired.

    • Quincy IL says:

      I’m sure that they are good for you if you use yogurt and fresh fruit. I saw some smoothies in shops in California, but I didn’t know what they put in them.

      I went to Mexican Grille fast food for the first time and was very happy to see a sign that they didn’t use lard. LOL… Who does?

      • anniieee says:

        oh hell I cant think of her name… the white haired lady with 2 sons from Savannah…. she uses it in her pie crust. GROSS

        brain fart… Paula Deen…

        • Quincy IL says:

          Really? When I was a kid, my grandmother made an English bread pudding with lard. It had bread and dried fruit too. She put it in a bag and boiled it. There was a white color around it when it came out kinda like a skin. That might have been the lard. She made a rum, butter, and brown sugar paste that we spread over it. I liked it as a child, but wouldn’t touch it today.

      • boston02127 says:

        Quincy, I buy the no fat plain yogurt and fat free milk for the fruit smoothies. I have to be careful of things because of my mothers diet. She eats so little now and I’ve been so happy that she likes the smoothies. Sometimes I can make her laugh, I’ll wake in her room holding a glass and say “ok, this one is an experimental smoothie”. I’ve made a few bad ones but there easy to fix.

    Kelly Bensimon: ‘I’d Rather Wear Skinny Pants Than Show My Boobs’


    Ring a ding ding Kelly……Playboy ring a bell???

    • Quincy IL says:

      Then why have such large fake boobs, Kelly?

    • TT in OC says:

      Boston, don’t hold your breathe, she may change her mind again in 2 seconds!

      • Adgirl says:

        But Kelly doen’t wear pants either.

      • MAMAZ says:

        If my breasts were as wonky as KKB I’d never show them either!

        • Quincy IL says:

          I think Ramona was correct and Kelly had reconstruction. They look normal now. I don’t understand why she is trying to keep her breast implants a secret. They are obviously not real breasts so just be honest about it.

      • Had Enough! says:

        She seems to have given up “really really really amazing” for “smokin hot, smokin sexy.” She’s smokin all right. Smoking stupid.

    • oopsy says:

      Boston, did I read that right? Did Kelly really say that the girl who is sexy isn’t the one with the big boobs or the big butt??? I’m sure there are people out there who get butt implants but for the most part women’s butt shapes are genetic. Why would she make a negative remark about something out of a person’s control?? Why not say people with big feet are creepy and small eyes are gross? And didn’t she get a boob job? What an idiot!! STFU Kelly!!! Just STFU!!!

  43. deehub says:

    I enjoy this blog so much. I come daily to read the comments. Love the blog and posters not the HW.

  44. Wall St Lady says:

    I laughed so hard & loud about the (sea gull) feathers that WSM came out of his man cave to see what all the joy was about.

    BTW I showed him the Kelly home video flogging the sea gull feathers & reminded him that he had been flirted with by her. He said “ick” but if she flirted w/me she at least has good taste.
    I said try again. She flirts with anyone w/an adams apple.

    • Quincy IL says:

      and yet Kelly can’t seem to develop a long lasting relationship. She was married just a few years to Giles.

      Do you think it’s possible that the visitor was Rachel Zoe. We wrote a lot about her marriage and if anyone is ticked off by our discussions today, it should me Rachel. She would be the first to say celebrity also because she is with celebrities all of the time.

    • TT in OC says:

      I was wondering if WSM even remember her? I am just curious how Kelly is perceived from a man’s point of view. Since my husband won’t watch HW with me, I can’t ask him.

      • Quincy IL says:

        The reporter on the story about Kelly’s Playboy shoot was interested in her. I’m sure that was purely sexual because she acted stupid during the interview.

    • lillybee says:

      That dress is so ugly on her. She needs to find things that suit her body type and not try and dress like Luanne. She can not carry it off.

      • icantstandthetoxicity says:

        I know those one shoulder strap dresses are in style right now but whenever I see those dresses, they remind me of the dress that Wilma Flinstone wore.

        • dumberries says:

          It’s a weird photo. When you first look at it, it looks like yet another one shoulder dress. When you look again, it’s clearly two full sleeved and there’s a shadow that looks like a bare arm.

    • OneMoreinBoston says:

      Oh fer crying out loud. I thought her daughter actually graduated from the cosmetic academy?

      Has any one else but me notice that it looks like she’s been doing her make up with Sharpies and Crayolas?

      The eyebrows…shudder..the eyebrows

    • Just because the dress fits and the color works does not mean it looks good. It is not age appropriate. It makes her look top heavy. The belt is just wrong for her body shape. I think she needs a new stylist. She is obviously being given clothing by the same designers as the younger cast members….bad choice.

    • KK says:

      I think she’s trying to dress like Danielle. She’s been dressing more sexy since D brought up at the reunion that they are the same age.

      Her head looks Huge on her body, like my daughters Bratz dolls.

  48. Wall St Lady says:

    WSM liked our post that Kelly should be skinned & made into a coat. Her skin is ruined from the sun. She has shoulders like a football player & is very tall.
    All men love to think
    “she wants me”. Remember most men think w/their little head when a woman comes on to them.

    It is doubly aggressive when done with an audience.
    When I reminded him of the venue all he remembered was a tall over tanned woman seemed to REALLY like him because normal women don’t behave that way !

    • Quincy IL says:

      I googled Kelly’s divorce settlement a while back. I was trying to find out how much money she received because she really doesn’t seem to have a job and she is spending like a drunken sailor.

      I had calculated that Jill spends between 750, 000 and 1,000,000 dollars a year. Kelly lives in similar homes with similar vacations so her income needs to be at least 1.5 million a year before taxes. Giles has to be supporting her because Bravo isn’t paying her that much. She has several books, but they were not huge sellers. Kelly seems to have no money concerns. However, alimony is not forever in this age. In 12 years, the girls will be long gone, but the bills will be piling up.

      • Gilles is like 100 years old. In 12 years he will be dead.

        Maybe he has life insurance?

      • TT in OC says:

        Correct me if I am wrong, I thought alimony and child support is two different things. She will lose the child support when the kids become 18 and unless she remarries, she can still receive alimony.

        • Zipit Zarin says:

          I got alimony for 10 years and people tell me that is a long time. Other people tell me alimony is a rare thing these days. Don’t know how it works in NY.

        • Quincy IL says:

          Danielle Staub only will get 3 years of alimony and she had financial need. If you are married ten years with children from the marriage, you get more than someone married a short time. I would think that Cat from DC got very little money from the 18 month marriage with no children.

    • Zipit Zarin says:

      I was at a party with my ex one time and this azzhole kept flirting inappropriately with me when my ex and I were mingling separately. He even went so far as to come close and say he wanted to “sleep” with me. I immediately went over to his wife (YES, she was there too! …the pig) and chatted her up and made sure we became fast friends for the night. He was sweating bullets but I never told her (she probably knew he was a pig anyway). I wouldn’t want to shame her like that even tho she was a stranger…she’s a Sistah. I love women friends and would never put another woman in the position I found myself in later …found out my ex was a pig too. Woman like Kelly make me sick and they have no idea what they are missing not having women friends. They’ll be there for you thru sickness and health, richer or poorer etc etc …and a good spouse will too. Anyway, all this to say Kelly reminds me of that pig who flirted with me. A pig.

      maybe. Very close together, and expressed similar sentiments. Truly though I think ChicagoBurbsGirl was legit, but rude and nasty.

      Dieana was a troll. I wonder if it was Dina? DieAna/Dina?

      • Quincy IL says:

        Dina seems to have a pent up anger directed at Lynn and Lynn was mentioned. She might have felt ignored.

        • Quincy IL says:

          Dina seems upset with Danielle tonight.. There are tweets about Danielle continuing to harass Dina. Dina seems to be in a foul mood.

          • Dina did cryptically mention “someone” contacting her. (#lastyearsversace) My first thought was Dina wants attention!

            Then I saw the photo of Baby Audrianna. Bad taste aside, does she not realize the bedazzled ladybug headband on the baby’s head is a choking hazard? The stupidity of these women never ceases to amaze me.

            She is pimping another Laurita bedazzle business. This one sells blinged out baby crap. Scroll through the stuff and find the PIMP baby pacifier. Every baby boy needs one.

    Thursday on Dr. Phil —- Are racial and cultural biases out of control, or are people too easily offended? Dr. Phil tackles this touchy topic with help from a panel of outspoken luminaries: comedian and actor Tommy Davidson; conservative radio talk show host Mike Gallagher; USC assistant sociology professor Amon Emeka; Emmy Award-winning writer Teresa Strasser and actor and comedian Paul Rodriguez. Then, the reality TV show Jersey Shore is a cultural phenomenon that gave the world Snooki and The Situation, but do shows such as this give Italian Americans a bad name? Teresa Giudice and Caroline Manzo, cast members from The Real Housewives of New Jersey, weigh in. Plus, a Dr. Phil staff member recounts her own experience with perceived bias, and hear an employer’s shocking confessions about beauty bias in the workplace!

      good grief. Isn’t there something better for Dr. Phil to tackle? Don’t like him, he seems like a fraud to me. He tried to get to Brittany Spears (IIRC) when she had her “breakthrough.” It was weird, like he was trying to “help” but really just wanted to get to her for the publicity.

      Great link Boston02127, thanks! Bethenny looks better than a top rated famous actress…& she is so funny. Did you see that funny Chinese guy from the movie Hangover the other night on George Lopez? I’m starting to enjoy Lopez’s show. Turns out the Chinese guy is really a medical doctor, and a super talented actor/comedian. His name is Ken Jeong, & he’s a fabulous dancer too.


      • Blue Sky says:

        Sorry, not as good as Boston at posting videos. Keep watching, the good stuff with Ken Jeong comes up after the commercial

      • Kat says:

        Thanks Blue Sky!
        He is funny. I liked the story about the elderly couple and how the gentleman had transient global amnesia from sex.

    Oh ladies…I assure you I am not the nutbag who felt it necessary to type in all CAPS (hello, I can spell and use proper grammar!). Sorry to disappoint. You’ve chastised me for my snarky comment regarding WSL’s earlier post, and I hear ya loud and clear. WSL – my bad.

    I am not actually a nasty or rude person at all; as a matter of fact, I don’t think anyone who knows me would ever use these words to describe my character. I’m a normal, nice chick from the Chicago suburbs with a 9-5, a husband, and a serious addiction to reality television.

  68. Wall St Lady says:

    Thank you.
    Would u please finish all my brilliant thoughts that fizzle as soon as quickly as they appear.

    I would never even try to star in our play but I would produce (raise the $$).

    Quincy & Lynn & Had Enough should direct.

    Script writers would be Windy & Boston 1&2.

    The lead would be the 1st chorus line in combination w/the skaters (ill is NOT included)
    The chorus & back up includes those who want to
    Sing loudly.

    All of us must keep our egos in check
    As Andy will certainly want to recruit a LynnFam
    Reality show.

    Let’s pledge we r all in or All out. 🙂

  69. Wall St Lady says:


    don’t go to bed
    till u tell me
    What ur moniker means

    • It has nothing to do with “Real Housewives” or reality tv. It was an old twitter account I had never really used. I saw celebrities using “real” word in front of their names to signify their identity, so why not me too? When I signed up for the blogspot google ID, I changed to the similar “reallymelissa.”

      Of course, I didn’t count on a Real Housewife coming out of the woodwork named Melissa. Damn it!

  71. Wall St Lady says:

    So ChicagoBurbsGirl r u still here ?

    Like I said I was fussed at with my first post. U embarrassed me & I am going to try & double check my posts.
    I use a blackBerry & don’t have the ability to reply to a post & often am in a hurry to reply b4 other posts come 1st on a different topic.

  72. lillybee says:

    Re Top Chef: remember I called it last week when I said that whoever got Mike V. as sous chef would win.

  73. lillybee says:

    Kevin won. Angelo has a spot in the also-ran Top Chef program with Carla, Tiffany, and a lot of my other season favorites.

  74. Wall St Lady says:

    I am here but I don’t watch anything but Ho wives. How is your grandaughter ?

  75. lillybee says:

    Grandbaby is fine, but her parents are going through some changes. I am more worried about the other grandkids, I am afraid that my daughter and her husband are becoming fundie Christians.

  76. Wall St Lady says:

    Being from the South I know plenty. I have met Billy Graham & his family. They really “walk their talk” The prastalatizing(sp) lasts a couple of years. Then out calm down & can b very pleasant if they don’t quit all pleasures.
    U may b surprised. I hope so.

    • lillybee says:

      Hope you are right. I have been spending too much time on the FreeJinger boards, so the fundie movement is scaring me a lot

  77. Wall St Lady says:

    What are the
    FreeJinger boards ?

    Need more evidence that the Salahis are a joke?

    Wall St. Journal, yesterday (excerpts):

    On Tuesday, Tareq Salahi’s motion to dismiss the bankruptcy case for his family winery was denied. The judge refused to dismiss the case of Oasis Vineyards Inc., which filed for Chapter 11 protection in December 2008 and converted to Chapter 7 liquidation this March. Tareq Salahi had sought the case’s dismissal on July 21, saying the bankruptcy wasn’t filed with the proper authority in the first place.
    Salahi said that he is majority shareholder “by and through an exclusive power of attorney from Dirgham Salahi,” his father. Salahi claims his mother wrongly filed the bankruptcy case without consulting him and that the filing “may have compromised the wine business beyond repair.” “Corinne Salahi has misrepresented that she had the authority to file this bankruptcy as it was dependent on using a power of attorney that she [sic] insist is legitimate but that is indisputably the subject of contention,” Tareq Salahi said. “I notified the trustee that the bankruptcy filing was flawed.”
    The bankruptcy trustee, Kevin McCarthy, opposed Salahi’s request later that month. “It is too late for Salahi” to contest the original bankruptcy petition, McCarthy said, because Salahi received notice of both the original filing and the case.

    “It has been more than 19 months since the filing of the Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition,” McCarthy said. “Throughout that period creditors have been stayed from any attempt to dismember the debtor’s winery assets….His premise is that the outcome of his power of attorney dispute with his mother Corinne, scheduled for trial in September 2010, will determine the debtor’s continued right to be in bankruptcy. The trustee respectfully disagrees with Salahi.”

    • Kat says:

      Tareq seems to make a fool of himself and others while bringing grief to those who know him. And you can’t believe a word he says.

  79. Had Enough! says:

    And apparently, Diane Dimond (author of the Salahi bio) is a joke too. The Washington Post TV columnist, reporting on the big news yesterday, wrote:

    “The Salahis took the occasion to once again say that they did not crash that White House state dinner back in November. Dimond, who wrote the book with the cooperation of the Salahis, also told Carlson: “I talked to a lot of my Secret Service sources [and asked], ‘Can they have gate-crashed?’ and the answer kept coming back, ‘No — the gate had to have opened, and they have to have been allowed in.’ ”

    That’s it. Make a ridiculous statement that is easy to falsify, but that doesn’t accurately represent what happened. Rig the question. Then knock it down.

    Diane Dimond. Moron. No one is accusing them of physically breaking an actual gate. The term gate crashing means attending an invite-only event without an invitation.

  80. Had Enough! says:

    Oh, we need to get this lady on IHJZ. This is the funniest comment I’ve read in a while (on a Washington Post health blog):

    I believe she has MS, Michelle Salahi disease, symptoms include: Pathological Lying,Scamming everyone they come into contact with, Delusions of Grandeur and being Desperate for attention. I’ll believe this story when they produce a medical report performed by an independent CREDIBLE Physician. This is just another ploy to deflect from their never ending BS. Lets not forget the “verrrrry serious” FBI investigation Tareq claims about Mary Amons daughter that never was. There is NO level these two would not sink to, to gain attention. Their book claims Bravo barred them from testifying and revealing the truth about the WH dinner which they DID IN FACT CRASH, Bravo has come out calling them out on their LIES.

  81. Wall St Lady says:

    When I herd the mother say she would welcome another child after the last one almost died ,I felt she was as bad as a murderer. I think the authorities should investigate them for child abuse.
    I bet some of those children will grow up to hate them & write a book that makes Mommy Dearest look like a charm school.
    When they all get together in that bus for an outing they look loike refuges experiencing America for the 1st. Who sees the local zoo for the 1st time. ( Age 15 !
    Yuck yuckyuck.
    I can see why you are stoubled.
    I had a friend ;after the third Nanny from a Mormonservice got pregnant pregnant (no offence to Mormons;it is a tru story)my friend said she was gonna put birth control pills in the next nAnny’s orange juice.

    • Ione says:

      IMO – That woman appears to be addicted to pregnancy hormones….I just don’t understand why the hormones have been so powerful after 19 pregnancies. The husband is reallllly creepy. Since she had pre-eclampsia with the last pregnancy I wouldn’t be surprised if subsequent pregnancies will have difficulties and could be very harmful to her.

  82. Quincy IL says:

    Have you noticed that Jill, Danielle, and our other villians in the Housewives series are projecting their emotions on others? I find this is common in my real life too.


    “In Freudian psychology, Psychological projection or projection bias is a psychological defense mechanism where a person unconsciously denies their own attributes, thoughts, and emotions, which are then ascribed to the outside world, such as to the weather, a tool, or to other people. Thus, it involves imagining or projecting that others have those feelings.[1]”

    I see Danielle, Jill and Michaela, our villians, projecting their feeling in every episode.
    We read it when we see that they are consider themselves to be the victims of the cruel intent of others. Bethenny fails to care about the victim Jill. Everyone tries to destroy the victim Danielle. People are talking about and trying to harm the victim Michalela. All the while our victims are running a slash and burn policy across our TV screens.

    I think a large percentage of our predator women in the real world are projecting their emotions on others. I see it in people like Cat who commit adultery because it is to their own benefit. I see it in people like Teresa who steal millions of dollars because the deserve a fresh start. Heaven help the person that gets in the way of any of these women.

  83. Wall St Lady says:

    Damn,above I pushed the wrong button before I did spell check or reread my post.
    Damn again.
    I do know English & u deserve better !

    OH well.

    Fiddle dee dee, Miss Scarlett!

  85. I watched Rachel Zoe Tuesday night with the audio off because I was on the phone with a friend (recorded it). Honestly, the program was *more* entertaining without sound! The grocery store scene was especially a riot with the assistant leading the 2 morons around – Rachel who had obviously never seen cheese in its grocery store state and Roger in his scarf and aviator glasses. I kept waiting to see if anything other than liquor would appear in the grocery cart. I assume since there was some sort of dinner at their home, a caterer was hired. From reading the comments here, I wasn’t far off guessing what was happening!

    I did like this show, but it too has gone the “Bravo-way” of manufactured drama.

  86. Had Enough! says:

    Can anyone tell me why Trashley is always shown riding in the back seat when she and Jaq are clearly the only two people in the car? Is it because the camera guy has to be in the front seat? Whatever the reason, it always makes me think of this adult (aged) baby in a car seat. Keep expecting her to suck her thumb.

    And holy moly but that cover photo on InTouch did no favors to the Giudice girls, did it? And I see they all share the same birth defect as their mother – heads that tilt to one side.

    • Ione says:

      Had enough, love your humor, very astute recognizing the Giudice disability, the head tilt. Associated symptoms to the disorder is lowered brow lines, money madness, tendency to destroy retail stores with out of controlled behaviour, foul language and tendency for aggressive physical behaviour toward others.

      I think you are right about Trashley riding in the backseat….need room for the camera man so he can shoot both Jacq and Trashley.

    • Kat says:

      Was Teresa pregnant and avoiding the front seat airbag?
      I think you’re right about the cameras.

    Lynn, Since I completely agree with your letter to Andy about the types of comments published, I had to call to your attention a couple of problems of your own:

    “sparing with her sister-in-law, Melissa and her brother Joe. ” SHOULD BE sparring

    “Jill Zarin’s Summer Vacation

    Jill finally took some advice from her public relations people and spent the last half of her summer laying low, but maintaining a presence on Twitter, Facebook and her web” SHOULD BE lying low, not laying low
