I Hate Jill Zarin Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
Southern California is heating up now, it didn’t take long for these ladies to start bickering, it seems that with a few exceptions they didn’t know each other all that well but bring on the cat fights.
I really like Lisa, I believe that she’s a really good person and you can see that she tries to keep the peace and wants everyone to get along. The show opens with Lisa and her
freeloading houseguest Cedric preparing for their day. I don’t understand how Lisa can stand to continuously carry that little dog around with her wherever she goes and whatever she does. She’s trying to prepare two cups of coffee for herself and Cedric with Giggy under one arm and I just wanted to shake her and yell, “put the damn dog down!” Luckily she moves on with her day minus the dog as we see her shopping for flowers and arranging the most stunning huge floral piece for her restaurant.
Lisa explains that she’s training Cedric who can now perform all of the necessary tasks at the restaurant in her absence, it was good to hear that he was actually doing something to earn his keep. In all fairness he seems like a nice guy and obviously provides something of value to Lisa, she’s too smart to keep a deadbeat around for too long.
Lisa plans an intervention for Kyle whose fear of flying has gotten out of control and helping out today is a hypnotherapist. While she was initially skeptical, Kyle tells us she thinks that it has done the trick. Her blog confirms that she certainly flew with less stress than in the past, so good for her!
Dual shopping sprees show Taylor and Kyle doing damage on Rodeo Drive while in another shop, Adrienne and Kim are stimulating the economy in their own special way.
I was really sorry for Adrienne as she took that phone call letting her know that her uncle passed away. Adrienne is so lovingly dedicated to her family and as we all can clearly see, she is beside herself and in shock. I was a little disappointed in Kim for letting Adrienne just leave by herself without offering to go with her. It just seemed a bit cold to see her walk out alone like that. Assuming Adrienne had a car and driver standing by, it might have been nice to have a friend stay with her until she could be with her family.
Kyle and Taylor’s shopping spree was much less dramatic if you ignore Kyle’s comment about being a size 2-4 which is “huge” for Beverly Hills. I can’t even comment on that ridiculous statement.
Luckily there were no annoying packing scenes just the ladies arriving at LAX and the, in your face, ad for Virgin Airlines. The airline employee asks Lisa a very simple question, “Have you flown with Virgin Airlines before?” Most people would just respond with yes or no but not Lisa, remember she knows everyone. Lisa’s response, “of course, I know Richard”. (referring to Virgin Airlines owner Richard Branson)
Tonight’s episode featured Camille Grammer opening with her discussing the New York trip with her sounding board and family friend, Nick who seems to be Camille’s Danny. Danielle needed someone to talk to so that viewers knew what was going through that sick mind of hers, Danielle had Danny, Camille has Nick.
Seeing Camille with her mother, who is being treated for cancer was really disgusting, there was no empathy for her mother but she spent the time complaining about how tired she is from her Hawaiian vacation? Is she serious? This is just a bad person folks!
We learn that she is still very upset with Kyle for comments made off-screen and once again I cannot understand why she would bring it up on-screen. Similar to Luann from New York bringing up Mario’s “Countless” comment, viewers would have never known that Kyle made a rude comment to Camille if she had just let it go. In both cases the goal was to get viewers on their side and make the other party involved look bad and in both cases, it failed.
Does anyone else think that being one of Camille and Kelsey’s house managers is the best damn job in the world? Appearing to be just another dinner guest, she’s seen sipping her cocktail and dining with the mistress of the house. This is a paid employee? I suppose a paycheck and cocktail are in order just for tolerating Camille Grammer. I could do that, where do I sign up?
Another really idiotic plan of Camille’s backfires as she tours the New York apartment and tells us that the 3500 square feet is simply not large enough for her family of four. She is just not sure if she can be cooped up in that tiny space all summer long. I still cannot imagine why this marriage didn’t survive!
It was nice to see Kelsey playing with his children and their genuine glee at seeing Daddy after a long absence. I hope that he has maintained close contact with them as the divorce is happening.
As the ladies arrive in New York City, Camille welcomes them to the hotel as if she owns it the way Adrienne owns the Palms. The ladies congregate in Taylor’s suite and are presented with gifts of t-shirts featuring Kelsey Grammer’s Broadway show along with cocktails and girl talk.
Kyle and Camille step into another room to hash out their differences as Lisa and Kim listen at the door. After they seem to agree to disagree about what exactly was said in Las Vegas, they hug it out and emerge with a plan to meet for dinner in 20-minutes.
Those 20-minutes seem to have been enough for Camille to completely forget about the truce and hug because she is determined to continue the battle at dinner with all the ladies present. Kyle is as shocked as the rest of the table as Camille informs everyone that she thought about it over the past 20-minutes and is upset once again over what she claims Kyle said. Kyle continues to deny saying to Camille, “who would be interested in you without Kelsey around?”
I have to admit that I have a hard time believing that anyone would say that, let alone Kyle who doesn’t seem to have a mean bone in her body. Kyle is understandably upset that all of this is being brought up yet again and Camille triumphantly tells viewers that she wins because she maintained calm. Personally, rather than calm, Camille seemed a bit psychotic to me, like the quiet but crazy one who surprises all the neighbors by turning out to be a serial killer.
Cut to Lisa’s restaurant where the husbands gather to celebrate their wives being out of town for a few days. Only Lisa’s husband seems to be missing his wife as he tells the others several times and they just look at him like he’s a bit crazy. When everyday women like us go out of town, typically our husbands are responsible for watching the kids, feeding them and maintaining the house. These men have none of those worries because they’ve hired people to do all of that for them and so they’re enjoying a relaxing night out with the guys missing only Kelsey Grammer. Cheers! (pun intended)
Back in New York at Serafina Restaurant, Kyle becomes even more visibly upset as Camille is like a dog with a bone and is determined to ruin dinner for everyone. The argument includes Kyle calling Camille a liar and causing her sister Kim to gasp in shock and cover her mouth as if she’s acting in a Disney movie. Some things die hard. Camille has this sinister fake smile and her voice becomes childlike making her even more creepy as she continues to push the issue. The argument continues next week, Watch What Happens…
I am really missing Adrienne these past few weeks and hope that she returns with more scenes soon, since she was not at the drama filled New York theatre trip, we may not see too much of her next week either.
Andy Cohen hosted another episode of Watch What Happens live last night, my blog on WWHL will be posted here:
