I Hate Jill Zarin Top Chef Just Desserts / DC Reunion / Beverly Hills Premier
It’s a big night for Bravo with three new programs starting at 9pm/8pm Central the first part of the Real Housewives of DC reunion show will air, you can watch a few previews of this right now at:
If people didn’t hate Michaele Salahi before the reunion, I have a feeling that this should seal the fate of this fake, lying, scheming Housewife that Bravo has chosen to showcase. If it wasn’t bad enough that we’re forced to listen to her lies again, Andy Cohen brings out the husbands in this reunion as he did last season in Orange County. The last thing I want to see is Tareq Salahi one more time, in fact I was hoping we’d seen the last of him as he crashed the White House at the end of the season. That couple makes my blood boil and I hope this reunion show is the finale for them as well!
Tonight also marks the premier of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Bravo has also posted a few video’s to get us all ready for this newest Housewives franchise. Included is an interview with Nicky and Paris Hilton nieces of two of the Beverly Hill’s housewives:
I think that the Beverly Hills version of the Real Housewives will do well and be much more interesting that DC and a whole lot more upbeat and lively than New Jersey. It will take time to get to know these Beverly Hills rich bitches but I think in the end, Bravo will have another successful show on its hands.
From New York to Los Angeles, the news outlets have something to say about the newest Housewives Show:
I’m looking forward to meeting the newest Housewives tonight!
RadarOnLine is reporting that it has exclusively spoken with Bethenny Frankel’s mother, here is what RadarOnLine is reporting that Bernadette Birk had to say about her daughter:
EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW: Bethenny Frankel’s Mom – ‘My Daughter Is Lying About Dark Past’ | Radar Online http://t.co/i9A9mQr
Bernadette Birk is quoted in this article,
“She did not come from a broken home and her father did not leave her at 4 years old,” Birk said when asked about the sad childhood picture Frankel paints. “I left her father when she was 2 years old and he did not support us with one penny, no alimony.”
Maybe someone needs to provide the definition of “Broken home” to Ms. Birk because if she left her husband when her daughter was 2-years old (as opposed to 4-years old) it really doesn’t change the fact that it was a broken home, merely that it happened two years earlier than previously reported and it certainly doesn’t make things any easier on the child involved.
As a fan of Bethenny’s, this woman’s interview, if accurate still doesn’t tell the whole story and while I doubt Bethenny will provide a rebuttal to this or even acknowledge it, nothing has changed as far as I’m concerned and I’m still a fan!
Bethenny has one of the best Housewives web sites, she provides recepies and weight loss tips, healthy eating suggestions as well as videos and photos of Bethenny and her family. www.bethenny.com
Top Chef Just Desserts:
I like this show more each week! I think I may even prefer it to Top Chef, I certainly prefer Gail Simmons to Padma Lakshmi, Gail is much more natural and easy going while Padma always seems to be trying to be the cool one, always has her guard up and usually comes across as an uptight bitch. Gail is simply put, a nice person and it shows on screen.
The Quick-Fire Challenge was just to prepare a soufflé, sounds simple right? With one hour to complete the challenge, many of the contestants created the classic chocolate soufflé but Zach, the rebel prepared the always favorite “frozen” Soufflé?
The three bottom losers in the Quick Fire surprisingly included Zach and his frozen creation along with Erika and Heather H, three of the strongest competitors. I guess guest judge, Pastry Chef Sherry Yard didn’t get the memo.
Top three in the Quick Fire, the arrogant Morgan, pathetic Danielle and winner Yigit who informs us that this is how it should have been from the start, he should have been coming out on top from the beginning. Sherry got that same memo!
I loved this elimination challenge, the chef’s were instructed to make wearable, edible dresses and while I don’t think anyone would have worn any of them, it certainly was pretty cool! A table full of designer shoes were rolled into the Top Chef kitchen and each chef chose a pair to inspire them in creating their edible outfit. I’ve never seen a group of chef’s more excited to see a bunch of shoes although the annoying Morgan informs us that he’s not all that into shoes but insists on feeding the male chauvinist stereotype by acting like a complete ass to his peers and in interviews.
Danielle and Heather C missed the mark completely and instead of using sweets, used vegetables to make their fashion creations. What the hell were they thinking? Sure it was easier but this isn’t Project Runway using grocery store items to create couture, this is Just Desserts and these people are pastry chefs. I really enjoy every time Heather C tells us that she doesn’t normally work with chocolate, it just digs her grave deeper each time she says it. Heather, you’re a pastry chef! If you’re going to prepare desserts for restaurant guests, they typically want at least one chocolate offering, you ninny!
Danielle is just a hot mess from her hair to the dress that she made it was a failure from the moment she started dying beets to use on her dress, then adding more and more vegetables just made it completely hideous.
I think it was fitting after watching these two completely ignore the instructions to watch Heather C get the boot for the second time, I really don’t think they should ever bring back contestants who’ve already been sent packing, it isn’t like anyone is on the edge of their seats to see if this second chance might get them to the finals, it never does.
Eric joined the two ladies in the bottom three, he did use the proper materials but his dress made of cookies was falling apart and the cookies were broken and it was just an ugly mess. His petit fours saved him from elimination and were described as outstanding by the judges.
I loved the cute accessories that the contestants made to go along with their dresses, most made cute little hand bags or make up bags, others were more creative making rings or necklaces that looked amazing!
I think that Gail Simmons needed to provide this group with a definition of petit four as the majority of the contestants made them too large, these should be bite size. The dresses were amazing, though and I particularly liked Erika’s dress that was a little black dress with feathers as the skirt all made of chocolate.
The theme for the day seemed to be princess warrior with the two of the top three having that similar theme but it was Morgan’s little black dress with the red stripe down the side to go along with his black and red shoes that won the judges hearts. I admit that Morgan’s dress was very cool, I just can’t root for him, his attitude is not just arrogant but offensive.
So, we bid farewell to Heather C….again, and it was fitting because she was only brought back to compete due to a contestant asking to be excused from any further competitions. Disappointing because I believe that Malika would have been a formidable competitor once she got more comfortable with the timing and pace of the competition.
Morgan and Yigit are emerging as the top contenders with Heather H and Zach in the middle of the pack ready to pounce on the front runners.
