I Hate Jill Zarin Bravo / Housewives Updates Sept 21, 2010
Just a quick few words on Bravo’s newest series Thintervention with Jackie Warner. We’re down to seven and they’re not even voting people off the island here…we lost Shay’s Mom, Kim to an arm injury.
I have to question, as I’m sure many of you who watched might have as well, whether Jackie Warner has any people skills whatsoever. She started the day by telling her assistant Craig that they were going to make this session as miserable as possible for the recruits. Resident rebel, Nikki shows up late and all of the others are punished for her tardiness by having to run the treadmill until she arrives. Good thing she eventually showed, the cast was getting pretty darn pissed off. Nikki strolls in claiming to have food poisoning but everyone knows, including Jackie, that this woman is hung over.
Nikki is a nasty cat who likes to slam all of the others, apparently making herself feel better. What is it about Bravo and British babes? They always seem to find the stereotypical bitches.
Shay is not a Diva as she claims to be, she’s a kid with a bad attitude, but did seem to improve as the episode went on so hopefully she’ll realize that Jackie is trying to help her.
Joe is a cocky sob and readily admits that he is only laying off of the cheeseburgers to become more attractive to the “right” women. Joe is one of those overweight guys who judges overweight women.
Jeana is really quiet and doesn’t really interact much with the others. I am getting the distinct impression that she doesn’t want to be there and this show is her Bravo punishment for asking for more money to appear on The Real Housewives of Orange County. I can just see Andy explaining it, “Sorry Jeana, you screwed us by holding out for more money, if you want to get back onto RHOOC you have to suffer through 8 weeks of pure hell with Jackie Warner, take it or leave it.”
Bryan seems like a really nice guy, I wonder however if he is there for the right reasons, it seems as though is life partner was harassing him a bit about his weight and he’s trying to lose weight for him.
Mandy hosted the dinner party last night, they do a lot of that, she seems like a really nice lady who will get no air time because she is a really nice lady.
Stacy just cries a lot!
This is not “must see TV” by any means but if there isn’t anything else on TV, it’ll do. Our regular poster here, Quincy will hopefully have a real recap for us later today.
Well you can all rest easy, Joe Giudice is behind bars having turned himself over yesterday, and he will not be having sex with his wife for the next ten days. How will they survive? Giudice being categorized as a “celebrity” is not being put into general population as any “regular” New Jersey criminal would be. Just like Paris Hilton and Lindsey Lohan, Joe will be alone in a small cell where he cannot be harassed by other inmates. Joe is reported to have told friends that this will be like a vacation for him, just as everyone suspected, he is not taking this seriously, not learning any lessons or seeing the error of his ways. Who are these people who think that they can tell Joe Giudice he cannot drive his car?
Interesting article, somewhat amateurish from an obscure web site: http://ibuysss.com/?p=410
A twitter friend of mine, @Intensity38 saved a few tweets that were quite interesting. Jacqueline tweeted that she was enjoying lunch with a few friends…
JacLaurita Having lunch with Caroline, Kim D. And @lina_shine! Beautiful day, nice breeze. I just realized I need a tan. Oh.. & my feet hurt.
When Intensity38 asked Caroline about the lunch, here is her response…
CarolineManzo @Intensity38 nope, no lunch
Honestly the Jersey girls really need to get it together and try to get their lies in sync.
RadarOnLine is reporting that Simon Barney was arrested yesterday for domestic violence against his estranged wife, Tamra Barney of the Real Housewives of Orange County:

NeNe Leakes is preparing to come back to television on October 4th with a new season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, she has been tweeting more often and got quite carried away last night, here is the conversation started by a young girl in Nassau:
I use to like @NeNeLeakes on house wives of atl then she just turned on ppl….but oh well she.use to be my favorite but now Kandi is she real
@NeNeLeakes There’s a bridge waiting 4 u 2 jump off! Go kill yoself
NeNe needs get it together! She will most likely get more tweets like that and she certainly can’t be telling young girls to go and kill themselves. Interesting that she attacked this girl when she really does get many tweets that are negative, maybe it is because this girl mentioned Kandi?
Not surprisingly she took very little slack, only two or three tweets questioned that NeNe suggested a young girl kill herself. In fact, many of her fans laughed at her tweet. There was no shortage of harassment when people thought that Danielle had implied Ashley should kill herself, yet NeNe seems to get away with saying anything she wants to say.
A few months back, one of our regulars on IHJZ mentioned that he knew NeNe Leakes and went to high school with her, here are some of his comments:
A side note, I knew NeNe Leakes from the Atlanta Houswives in High School. She was a piece of work even then. The storied I could tell…
What you see of NeNe on the tube is no act. That is exactly how she was in High School – she hasn’t changed one iota. Always fighting and always loud…
The fight with Latisha started when NeNe mad fun of her belt. SHe called it a “new wave belt” and called the girl poor. This was 1983 so you have to take it in the context of the times…
One more tidbit, NeNe had this black tooth from the 9th to the end of the 10th grade. It was more or less this huge black cavity on one of her incisors. She always bragged how her mother enrolled her in Barbizon modeling school but I kept thinking to myself what about the black tooth.
She also was a cheerleader. We had this gym coach who was of course playing for the other team. I remember during PE Mrs. Odom asked NeNe about her name – it was strange to her. She replied sarcastically “you know, Knee and a Knee”. As she said the phrase she high kicked each knee into the air and pointed at it. For some reason that exchange always stuck out in my mind as funny…
With all that I’ve said, I think NeNe is a victim of the same delusional notions of grandeur as our Jill Zarin. They take it up a notch once they feel they’ve acquired celebrity status.
One more side story, I remember when NeNe got in a fight with the same Latisha in 12 grade social studies class – this was a class right after the lunch period. These girls went at it and it was scary. A very physical fight with a lot of smacking, scratching, and pulling of hair. NeNe was not anyone to mess with because she was a huge girl who towered over all of us…
In the 9th grade we had this science teacher name Mrs. Hazen – I think she was Egyptian. Anyway, NeNe was always giving this woman a hard time. She actually got expelled for week because she made some off-handed remark about Mrs Hazen’s hot flashes and her grasp on the English language. She kept opening and closing the windows during the winter months. They actually had an agrument in class and NeNe was promptly suspended for week from school. I honestly believe Mrs. hazen was going through the “change of life” when this happened.
Thank you for sharing those memories Upper West Side Dude!
I’m not going to pretend to say that I’m not watching The Atlanta Housewives because I tried that with New Jersey and it didn’t come close to working, so I’ll admit, I’ll be watching RHOA.
For anyone who may have been around when I started this blog, you may remember that my first blogs were posted on Hubpages web site. They have now shut down all of those blogs. It seems as though now that we’ve moved to WordPress, Hubpages was offended by the word “Hate” in the blog title, but when it was bringing dozens and dozens of hits to their site, apparently they were fine with it. So I plan to bring all of those blogs, along with the great comments over to the Blogspot site just so that people can read them if they want to, some of the comments are golden! I will post here when those have been transferred if anyone is interested in reading them.
I plan on continuing to post blogs here on WordPress as this comment venue is a whole lot better than Blogspot but if you’d all go over and just click on the ads now and then, I’d appreciate it LOL (earned $6 so far! woohoo) But seriously, if you do have time the old blogs are fun to read, especially when you see some of your own old comments!
The first one is posted, it was originally posted April 19, 2010 – comments are also posted. More to come..
Until Next Time…
