I Hate Jill Zarin Weekend Housewives News Nov 27, 2010
Bravo hasn’t made it official and the Manzo brothers aren’t talking either but Patti Stanger of Millionaire Matchmaker has announced that Christopher and Albie Manzo will be getting their own spin-off on Bravo. According to Stanger they have already started filming which would explain why these two boys finally moved out of Mommy and Daddy’s house in New Jersey.
Caroline Manzo of The Real Housewives of New Jersey did raise three great kids, I will give her credit for that. The Manzo boys do reek of being raised with everything they’ve ever wanted but they also seem to be kind and well-mannered with just a hint of frat boy thrown in.
For the life of me I cannot imagine why Patti Stanger would be the one person who would let slip that this show is being created. Her only affiliation with these boys is her attempt at finding them love on her show, Millionaire Matchmaker. She was unsuccessful, no surprise there, she usually does fail but the Manzo brothers appearance on her show was her highest rated episode and there is no question the New Jersey Housewives are popular.
Here is Stanger’s tweet:
@PattiStanger: Congrats to the Manzo boys for getting their own show on @Bravotv! So excited for you guys. @CarolineManzo @AlbieManzo @Chris_Manzo xo
And so another Bravo spin-off is born, I’m sure we’ll see the rest of the family here and there, probably Lauren, their sister and of course Mommy Manzo will make some guest appearances, people will expect that but what will fill a full hour each week? Are they looking for love? There has to be some sort of theme to the show, we can’t watch them play the ham game and visit strip clubs every week. Watching Chris park cars at the Brownstone would get a bit boring. Both boys apparently are now working at the Brownstone, featured frequently on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, this family owned banquet facility could be the location for a lot of the filming.
Big news over in the Atlanta scene, Kim Zolciak is indeed pregnant, we’ve all heard the news by now. It was officially announced by Life & Style Magazine on their internet site and shortly after confirmed by Kim herself. Kim’s blog on BravoTV.com also confirmed her pregnancy, but she has quite an attitude in her blog. Here’s some of what she had to say:
Kim Zolciak: In all honesty this episode wasn’t all that interesting, and I think you all know why … So let me keep this short and sweet.
Dripping with attitude, Kim simply cannot understand why Kandi wouldn’t be thrilled over receiving a red wig for her birthday? Really Kim? Kandi doesn’t wear wigs so it was a pretty thoughtless gift. I’m sure you’d love to take it back as you announced on Watch What Happens Live that it cost almost $2,000. Personally, I thought it looked better on Kandi than she did, I thought it looked better than the Woody Woodpecker red that she was sporting all season but still Kim should have known Kandi better and given her something for her birthday that she would love. Even if Kandi did wear wigs regularly, that is something that she would pick out herself with a stylist.
Kim goes on…
Phaedra and that baby … Now the truth comes out! Everyone thought I was crazy when I said I have a nursing degree, but I believe I proved it. How could you lie to a group of women who ALL HAVE HAD CHILDREN? But blah blah blah. All I truly have to say is that when I deliver MY baby, you won’t see me saying, “Ew gross.” Another thing, Phaedra said delivering her baby was the “closest thing to death,” but I believe child birth is the closest thing to living.
Knowing the gestational period for a human being does not prove that you have a nursing degree, but as with all thinks Kim, she turns her comments about Phaedra giving birth into “All About Kim” once again. Kim doesn’t welcome Phaedra’s baby, or congratulate the new parents, these scenes showing Phaedra preparing and delivering her baby didn’t include Kim so she has nothing to say about them but rather turns it into me me me. Kim Zolciak might just be the most selfish human being on earth.
Fan reaction to Kim’s announcement has been mixed, most are sending congratulations, and others are questioning the Atlanta Housewife’s behavior:
The most laughable and tragic of this all, is that you are having unprotected sex with a guy whom, still really don’t know. Not a good look or example for your daughters…Just weeks before, you loved Big Poppa, then you were into lesbians, now it’s Kroy (If I were Kroy, I’d go get myself checked) Perhaps w/a baby now, you’ll lay-off the alcohol & cigs…
I’m DYING to know what Poppa thinks of your relationship and pregnancy. (I wonder if he’ll take back the Bentley?) For the baby’s sake, I hope things with you and Kroy work out, but I’m not holding my breath.
I think you should have told US about the baby on WWHL – we are your fans and Bravo gave you the best opp of your life! As the song goes – MONEY CANT BUY YOU CLASS! Oh well…….poor Andy!
The remaining comments are positive and congratulatory but I must say these folks have a good point. Kim went from a married man that she dated for many years, to a lesbian relationship with DJ Tracy then moved on to a NFL Football player and immediately got pregnant by him. Kim is probably not the best role model for her young impressionable daughters.
Kim has apparently NOT quit smoking, not even for her unborn baby, here’s TMZ’s report:

Bethenny has been tweeting quite a bit more than usual, here’s what she’s had to say:
@Bethenny: Season 2 of my show will be called “bethenny ever after?” What do u think?season 3 may be “bethenny after breakdown?” LOL
@Bethenny: Back from rink:today was fun.regardless of what judges say, I’m doing this for me,hoppy A Fan to @Bethenny: Can’t sleep
@Bethenny: Me neither! Too much going on! my eyes are black holes. I secretly wish bryn was up. off to skating in an hour!
@Bethenny: are u ever exhausted PM after PM but can’t sleep bc of all on ur mind? Maddening brought me to tears at ice rink.I wish I was a sleeper.
A Fan: TO @Bethenny.watched show! Omg it’s bullocks that ur second to last!Grr!
@Bethenny: Either I go home&get to zzz or u vote me thru.WIN WIN!!!
A Fan: TO @Bethenny Sounds like you want to get voted off, do you?
@Bethenny: I’d like to knit & have u guys keep voting me through. next I’ll sew.
@Bethenny: Although I like the natural way, my md gave me something to sleep & i have to say it worked. 4wks of insomnia is maddening! better today. u guys?
I like that she’s sharing just how difficult this is but it really sounds like she’s struggling to keep it together through this process. Skating With The Stars is not going to help her build her brand, I don’t think she’s doing it for that reason. I believe her when she says she’s doing it for the challenge and for her fans, there is little benefit to her directly.
Monday will be interesting because Skating With The Stars Judge, Johnny Weir did take a lot of heat over his treatment of Bethenny, his harsh words and low scores did not go unnoticed by Bethenny’s fans and Johnny received plenty of tweets about it, articles and blogs were written about his speech to Bethenny last Monday.
Johnny told Bethenny that she needed to focus and make this skating gig the most important thing in her life right now, he basically implied that Bethenny wasn’t taking this seriously and that she may only be there for the fame. Johnny Weir was already deep in my doghouse for his unnatural friendship with Jill Zarin but he plummeted to hell with is unprofessional and frankly inappropriate comments. His contradictory public remarks noting that he did watch Jill Zarin on RHONY then saying he didn’t watch the show just days later was another red flag. He is there to judge her performance, period! He’s not there to judge her life and how she lives it. His snooty little facial expressions and judgmental comments are not going to win him any popularity contests, let’s hope he’s fair and impartial on Monday night.
Speaking of Jill Zarin, she has finally released her bedding line through Bed, Bath and Beyond. The price point is a bit high for most of us regular folks but I’m sure her people did study the Real Housewives of New York demographics as they were preparing her product and price.
Kell On Earth’s Kelly Cutrone tweeted this to Jill Zarin:
@peoplesrev @Jillzarin hey how can i check out your new bedding line – want to get some for the country house – hook me up
@Jill Zarin: Go to bedbadbeyond.com pick out. Invite me and I will bring as gift!“
Wow, just wow, Jill invites herself to Kelly’s home…speechless!
This video sent to Jill by a fan is an Australian guy who is apparently a fan, he bought her a gift and made this video to Jill showing her what he’ll be sending her, it looks like an ornament of a lady holding a dog, he claims that when he saw it, he thought of her…gag me! Here’s his tweet:
speardaniel @Jillzarin http://twitvid.com/Q1DR5 – A gift for Jill Zarin
and a response from another Australian:
Willow_Worthing @speardaniel @jillzarin VOMIT!! I’m embarrassed for you .. You are an embarrassment to Australians.
I must say I agree with Willow here, and I think I’ll become a fan of Willow’s!
Over 90% of Jill’s recent tweets are about her bedding line, she’s going to beat us to death with this just like she did with her book.
Jill and her daughter Ally attended the Thanksgiving Day parade in New York City and she tweeted many photos, here is her first:
@JillZarin This is Alot of work taking photos and uploading. Is anyone looking or should I stop? Arlo Guthrie http://tl.gd/75cjg1
