I Hate Jill Zarin Weekend Update Nov 27, 2010

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
@JillZarin:  Ally is front row now. Anyone see her? http://c0013558.cdn1.cloudfiles.rackspacecloud.com/x2_384ffb0
Check this out!


This is surreal! http://yfrog.com/j6c6c0j

And on and on Jill went, ensuring she showed her VIP seats in the front row, you can view them all by clicking “next” if you feel the need.

Kelly Bensimon’s recent tweets:

@Kikilet:  Happpppyyyyyy turkey day, and for those who are vegetarians, happy ‘tofukey’ day. gobble gobble tweeters.give thanks to those you love
@Kikilet:  Just went to a huge supermarket. I love supermarkets, they have everything. Next up, icecream cookie sandwichs for the kiddies.
@Kikilet:  Happy turkey day from us to you. http://yfrog.com/5ba5zj
@Kikilet:  My sister in law just bought sea her first pair of high heels. Sea is soooo fancy!!!!
@Kikilet:  Family picts. I hope they cut out the mocassins. Lol http://yfrog.com/0gpjn01j

Kelly will never stop tweeting photos of herself…sigh!

Until Next Time…

  1. justanothermary says:

    Great blog – thanks! It is just amazing to me how Kim can turn any conversation around to being all about Kim. That poor baby.

    • TLM says:

      Did everyone notice Jill referred Kelly Cutrone to “bed BAD beyond”? Hilarious.

      Kelly: “I love supermarkets, they have everything.” HUH???

      It is sort of odd that Johnny Weir implied Bethenny wasn’t serious about skating, when she clearly threw herself into it. And what does “not serious” mean in the context of this show? Are any of the non-professional skaters trying to get to the Olympics or the Ice Capades? I don’t think so. I think they’re just trying to get through this crazy competition without losing their teeth.

    • Savannah111 says:

      Great Blog as always Ms.Lynn. 🙂

      As far as Kim goes, one of the first thoughts I had was the fact that she hasn’t known him all that long and to get pregnant IMO was just reckless of both of them. I would be willing to bet a little money that his family isn’t crazy about his choice of girlfriend or soon to be wife or where ever their relationship takes them to. Thank God that my boys never brought home girls like that. I go back and forth with my feelings about Kim because she can be funny at times and I did feel sorry for her when she had the problems with Sheree and Nene with that big confrontation last year, HOWEVER, the one thing about Kim I do not respect is the fact that she was with a married man for so long. It’s never really mattered to me what the circumstances were with his marriage the fact always remained the same he was married and still is.. IMO Kim has a very addictive personality and I really hope that she stops smoking and drinking, but I would also bet a little money that she’ll slip and have alittle wine and smoke a cigarette when she can.

      I’m alittle shocked about the Manzo brothers getting their own show, seriously I think they are good kids I’ve not ever seen them be disrespectful but what will their show even be about that could keep people interested enough to tune in for an hour every week, unless they plan on alot of drama between the two of them I dont know how this show will be interesting enough to air. You know Caroline and her hubby won’t do anything but play the role of perfect parents when they are on air. I just don’t get it. But I have to be honest for me I hope that it’ll drive Teresa crazy or I should say crazier than she already is that they got their own show and she didn’t.

      Jill Zarin and her Bedding OMG, well everyone get ready for her to promote it until we all throw up.

  2. Had Enough! says:

    Jill Zarin tweeted a photo of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, complaining about how hard it was to do. Poor Jill.

    But any lessening of the hatred I felt for Jill Zarin has vanished, because one of her photos says Arlo Guthrie, and I see he was on one of the floats. How DARE YOU, you money-hungry, status-hungry, anti-environmental, tasteless, classless POS dare BREATHE the name of one of my heroes? You aren’t fit to be in the same city as Arlo Guthrie.

    • Debbie says:

      Had Enough!
      I have to agree with you. Maybe Jill gave Arlo a shout out thinking she’d get some freebies, knowing ‘You can get anything you want at Alice’s Restaurant’?

  3. Had Enough! says:

    You know how Jill’s Trained Sasquatch calls her two daughters the Kidlets? And she calls herself Kikilet?

    Well I have a new name for her:


    • klmh says:

      I like that, the best yet for KKB, but can you come up with something that includes, most insecure sad mentally ill, into that somehow?
      No kidding, your nick name is the best.

    • MichellefromNY says:

      LOVE IT

    • OMG I love that name! WOW! YOUR A GENIUS. You should cal her that on twitter. no better yet lets patent that bad boy of a name.

    • karenne says:

      to HAD ENOUGH: agree totally about Arlo and the New Name for kkb.

      KIDIOT it is….Bravo!!! Hip Hip Hurrah!!!
      (wouldnt want anyone to think this refers to one kidlet….as in one of kkb’s daughters!
      would putting “the” in front of KIDIOT make that distinction? I hope so because
      your brilliant naming of kkb….is so FUN!!)

      Now, my ocd’ish need to not point out flaws, opinions, etc on the Children of the RH’s….is fulfilled, my neurosis is appeased.

      The Kidiot it is!

      ? arent kidlets goats? only an idiot would call their daughters goats…oh well.

  4. tootsie says:

    KKB really can look almost attractive when her body is covered from head to toe. I often wonder how Giles put up with this narcissist (sp?) for so long. Poor man. Poor girls.

  5. klmh says:

    Both Jill and Bethany are increasing their tweets and appearances because both have an agenda, to sell their wares and make money. Poor Kelly is trying to do something to stay viable, but she falters at every turn. To me, its just that simple.

  6. TrueLifeDiva says:

    I have yet to see KKB look attractive, sound intelligent, or do something TRULY charitable. I just want to smack her!
    It’s funny that Kim is snarking on Phaedra because I’m sensing a fib or two in regards to when she got pregnant. How long did she date Kroy prior to conception, is there overlap with Tracey, and is there overlap with Big Poppa? Dun dun dun!

    • karenne says:

      dancing with the stars of atlanta, was in May of 2010. not sure about Kim’s status as a lesbian or adultress in May of 2010….
      two blondes, kroy and kim…do not create dark brunette, olive skin toned children. Usually, but there are those nasty recessive genes, popping out when you least want them to! haha

      kroy is so young, hope for a good outcome for his sake! and of course, for them all. but I know what its like to have adult children bring home a special friend, to meet me! Yikes…wonder if Kroys mama has been a fan of the Atlanta Housewives? I cringe…when I look at Kim, I cant help but hear NeNe at reunion yelling “close your legs to married men, close your legs to married men, close your legs to married me”.

    • T-Rex says:

      Just my opinion, but as I had posted once before, I think Big Poppa is “fixed”, or KimmieZ would have trapped his ass so fast he wouldn’t have known what hit him. When Poppa was rich, child support alone, would have secured her a nice income. Could be why she was so careless with any kind of Birth Control, neither a man with a Vasectomy or a Lesbian will “knock you up”

  7. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @HD Congratulations! I suggest you immediately go to your local post office and get a P.O. Box. You are going to need it for all the baby gifts you will be receiving from your “Lynnfam Aunties” :-D. I’m headed to Michaels right now to stock up on supplies. I’m bedazzling some bibs no matter what the sex of the baby is. This kid is gonna be fancy!

  8. klmh says:

    If you have a chance, go to RCH for her recap of RHOA. Just priceless.

  9. quincyil says:

    For the first time, QuincyIL, is going to be your spy. I will go to our new store, Bed Bath and Beyond to see if the black bedspread set that costs 2,000 dollars is there. Unlike Jenn Zen Sales, I will not be paid for giving my thumbs up. I don’t like Martha Stewart as a person, but I like her products so I think I can be a fair judge like Johnny Weir, best friend of Jill Zarin, is when he judges the evil, too busy with her own show and life to give it all to skating, Bethenny Frankel.

    I will wear black. It’s thinning and spies wear black.

    • TLM says:

      It actually does not cost $2000, they said a custom set at Zarin Fabrics would cost $3000, but this is supposed to cost $180.00. Here is what’s on the website so far: http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/search/search.aspx/zarin/?sstr=zarin&dim=1&nty=1&

      • quincyil says:

        Mata Hari reporting in.

        Western IL is officially a Jill Zarin product free zone. There are no books or bedding in our stores. The manager said that he could help me find it on the internet, but I declined.

        You can find camoflauge bedspread and matching curtains in either tan or green, however.

        • Adgirl says:

          That sounds like an episode of “Santino and Austin” in Podunk middle america. They were at the fabric shack searching for something to make a fancy occasion dress for a woman who hadn’t worn a dress in 10 years. Half the fabrics were camoflauge.
          I loved that show. Hope they do it again.

      • karenne says:

        I couldnt help myself…I checked out the bedbathbeyond.com site to get a look at JZ’s bedding sets.

        I also checked out other sets, by other companies carried in “BBB.com”

        hmmm, the one thing worth noting: BedBathBeyond.com suggests “waterproof padded mattress covers” to go along with the purchase of JZ’s bedding, as an item the customer might like.
        the other sets, not by Zarin, suggest bedding items not related to waterproofing the mattress, but rather more decorative items to go along with their sets.

        BedBathBeyond.com must see Zarin as appealing to the women of Gloria’s age, and older. (Z’s mom) Or…women who sleep with their young children, in the family bed.

        But where oh where…is the BLUE and WHITE, she did in her own home?
        Nate Berkus, I think thats his name, right? the Oprah guy with his own show now…anyways…
        He was asked what he thought of Jill Zarin’s taste regarding her blue and white rooms. He laughed, and said, “Jill and I are friends, but I let her know what I thought of her taste and told her I would help her if she wanted me to” another laugh, then onto commercial.

        It seems as if everyone on tv, is “friends” when speaking about someone they run into at fundraisers, or channel nbc and bravo get togethers.
        Did I read that NBC and BRAVO were bought by another network? recently? I think so, something about the exec’s and I wondered if Andy would be spared, as did the writer of this “piece” I read…or heard…???? anyone? I cannot remember.
        a dream perhaps?

        disclaimer: haha: I LOVE a thick padded cushy mattress cover to protect my very comfortable and cushy bed!

  10. Temporarily Me says:

    I think it is funny that while self promoting her new line at Bed Bath and Beyond Jill couldn’t even be bothered to get the name or website correct!

    “@Jill Zarin: Go to bedbadbeyond.com pick out. Invite me and I will bring as gift!“

    I love Bed Bath and Beyond but what Jill says I think describes her line. It’s for the bed and it is bad beyond comparison. 😉

  11. Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

    And a beret. Spies wear black berets. It is part of the standard uniform along with oversized black sunglasses. 🙂

  12. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @TLM, read your reply on the other thread about Jersey stereotypes. Funny thing is, it’s becoming a trend here in southern california. I see girls in the mall with big teased hair, bumpits, frosty makeup, and spray tans that look like 1st degree burns.
    The nails debate… I agree with you on 75% of what you said. French manicures have become a standard and are no longer trendy (except glitter or reverse french). For many professional women the choices are red, french, or nude. Acrylic is only tacky when it is too thick or too long. The latest tacky trend that is working my nerves is the reverse tip trend. This is where a girl gets a full set and instead of placing the tip with the wide end facing correctly, they turn it around so that nail gets wider and has a cut out with two sharp edges. A friend of mine recommended I get this done as it is “the latest thing.” I have very long nails of my own. When I informed her I had never had a full set in my life and if I did it would be something more flattering than that, she looked a me like I was crazy. She can’t pick anything up with her fingers because of this ugly trend she follows but she pities me, LMAO! Oh well, I remember wearing 10lbs of accessories, flourescent outfits, all lace, and black eyebrows that looked like Sharpie designed them in the 80’s :-). I guess everything cycles back around with each generation.

    • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

      hmmmm…..Not sure I believe you wore that stuff. I think we need a picture? Heee heee heee!

    • TLM says:

      Wow, when you said “reverse tip”, I thought you meant a nude nail bed and dark free edge, which I can’t stand. To me it just makes the nails look dirty. What you describe is even stranger and sounds totally hideous. A backwards tip also isn’t going to fit properly on the nail, which can lead to fungal infections.

      I never cared for tips with overlays. I’ve used tips and overlays, powder and glue, and solid acrylic. I haven’t done Minx since that only came out recently, and I went natural several years ago. I think if you’re going to do artificial nails, they should be solid acrylic. I agree that they don’t have to be tacky, but anymore, the only ones I see are overly long, overly thick, overly curved (the hawk curve) or overly decorated. Those are the things that make them tacky. But I just think acrylics generally are out of fashion, and you can always tell an acrylic nail. Anymore I think the only reason to have them is if your nails continue to break and split, and need the protection of the acrylic to hold them together.

      The reason tips became popular is that they are less work and time for the nail techs, and therefore cheaper for the client. But I think more nail techs need better training on how to fit tips and shape nails, because I can’t believe some of the jacked-up nails I see coming out of salons.

      • California35 says:


        I agree with you. I started using acliric ails because I couldn’t keep my natural nails long or even keep them period. They were short and below short all e time. My finger tips hurt. Then I began using fake nails and the problem stoped. They were so in style back then, that I didn’t stand out. Then they were out of control. I kept using the same length and discreet colors, although many would suggest other colors. I did try what was hip, but kept coming back to the look I liked. I would take them off a few month a year to make sure I let my real nails “breath”. I would regret it because they were even weaker than before, and would put fake nails back on. Just recently (about a year or two) I took them off and was very patient and careful until all the damage went away, and now they are finally healthy. I keep them short to avoid breaking them, I do use nail polish and its a lot of work. I do get manicure about once a month or six weeks too. It is true that it is more work than getting fake nails.

      • California35 says:

        TLM I just went back to previous blog, and read your post about nails. I just want to say that I liked it 🙂

        • TLM says:

          Thank you! It is tough going back to natural from acrylics since the nail plate does soften underneath, but I was also glad to say goodbye to acrylic. Glad you were able to get your nails in good shape!

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      I love a very natural french manicure. I always have to tell the nail tech, skinny skinny, for how wide I like the white part. I like them a little on the shorter side- I want it to look polished but clean.
      So they always try and put on a white tip instead of the regular tip, and it makes the white part fat fat fat. And I don’t mean Pretty Hot and Tempting PHAT either.
      I always have to argue about it. I HATE that fugly white tip- it works my last gay nerve and I’m not even gay.
      So I stopped arguing and today I’m Lincoln Park After Dark, so not spa like. F*ck it- now I’m goth- whatevs…

      • Adgirl says:

        For years I just had clear gel or acrylic right on my natural nails. It looks like clear nail polish and your nails are healthier than having them sandpapered to hold the tip on.
        And you never have to worry about “losing” your nails.

      • TLM says:

        I haven’t used that color. I have VII I think by China Glaze, a very dark brown, which was part of their dark series they did a couple years ago. I bought several drab shades by Anise including Trench Coat, which I’m wearing now. I’ve been happy with it. I like Tickle my France-y by OPI for a neutral.

    • TLM says:

      Found this video from the Jerseylicious girls… I think Gigi refers to what you’re calling “reverse tip” as “Flared” nails. I think both Gigi and Tracy’s nails are horrendous. I do like Gayle’s nails. Someone needs to tell Tracy that MAGENTA is not French Manicure pink!!! The acrylic powder used on her was absolutely too dark. And both Gigi and Tracy’s nails are poorly shaped and in need of fills. http://www.mystyle.com/mystyle/videos/v52648_jerseylicious-tip-french-manicure.html

      One way to paint a tip is to use a much narrower “striping” brush, and don’t overload it with polish. Essie probably has the largest selection of French Manicure pinks and whites. “Marshmallow” is a popular Essie tip color since it isn’t a blinding white, but rather more natural. Salons often use a stencil and spray this color on with an airbrush. But I don’t care for the method of painting on the tip last. It often looks too thick and chips, as Gigi said.

      I think the easiest way to do a natural French is to stick an acrylic foil on your natural nail to form the “smile line,” about 1/8″ from the free edge. Paint it with white in a thin layer. Peel off your foil while the polish is still damp. When the tips are dry, use 2 coats of sheer pink over the whole nail. Now you have not only protected the tip, but tinted the white to your nail color. Allow it all to cure and use a top coat.

      • TLM…have you ever done the LCN nail?
        acyrlic under uv lite?
        i have been doing this since (READY….) 1999!
        pink filler, pink sealer very short. love love love it.
        im actually doing them myself now! bought my own UV light.
        its an experience.

  13. Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

    Ran a bunch of errends last night (after the mobs had quieted), so just now catching up.

    HD—Congratulations! That is such great news and I am just sooooo happy for you!
    Quincy, your blog rocked!
    Lynn, this is another good one! You just turn them out, don’t you?!
    WSL–Hey! I wasn’t around when you hollared–I am good, how are you?
    I am currently sitting at my computer while Misty (one of the dogs) bangs on the door because she wants to come inside. She cannot come inside until she does her morning “business”. She thinks it is cold and she should be allowed to conduct that “business” in a corner of my living room. It is a war of wills. I will win this war. The stubborn thing has been out there for 2 hours. I have seen her hold it out there for up to 4 hours. She must have bladder muscles of steel. So ridiculous.

    Not sure anyone has mentioned this, but on Phaedra’s Bravo blog, she said her labor lasted 3 days. That poor OB-GYN. First he’s going to induce labor 2 months early, and then he allows her to labor 3 days instead of the maximum 24 hours all other OB’s follow for safety sake.
    I am really surprise he hasn’t sued her for defamation of character.

    Thanks for the new blog Lynn.

    Congratulations HD! I’m very happy for you.

    Update on my mother. I didn’t want to say anything on Thanksgiving. I wrote to Lynn and told her but I’ve been keeping quiet until I knew more. My mom was taken to the hospital on Thanksgiving morning at 6:30 A.M. When she woke up her right eye was really swollen and she seemed confused so I called an ambulance. They found bleeding on her brain, after further testing they found that it had bleed but is not bleeding. They found two spots of blood that they are watching now. She went thru all kinds of test on Thrusday. Yesterday she slept most of the day. I was back there this morning and she is in better spirits and wants to come home. She is no longer in ICU and they told me that she will probably be able to come home by Tuesday or Wed of next week depending on the next MRI results.
    Also, a woman from one of the services at the hospital came to see me and we talked. She is going to help out. She is setting up for a visiting nurse to come to our house 2 to 3 days a week and we are having a hospital bed delivered on Monday morning.
    I’m so happy right now about getting some nursing help for her & her new bed.
    I just wanted to let you guys know about the visiting nurse because many of you have suggested a nurse to me in the past but I never knew her insurance would cover it. I’m going back to sit with her later on today but I’ll keep you posted.

    • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

      I know the name is a scary thing, but check into some of the Hospice organizations in your area. They are not just for short term cases. My Dad had a Hospice organization involved with his care for 2 years. They can also send nurses, help organize some of her doctore visits to happen in your home (yes, the doctors will come to you) and all of her prescriptions and other medical supplies (gloves, body wash to make bathing easier, wipes, gloves, etc.) can be delivered directly to your home. They arrive the same day you or the nurse calls for them. They also have counselors who will come out to talk to you and your mom. It is a great organiziation. If they have a chapter of LifePath, in your area they are the best. Every single person who was involved in the care of my Dad was focused on LIFE and keeping the quality of life for him as good as it could possibly be. I just cannot say enough about how they helped us out.

      • klmh says:

        Great suggestion. We also had hospice and I can’t say enough about their professionalism and care.

      • AZ Girl says:

        Hospice is so great. Amazing people who provide such loving care.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        @Boston – keep your courage and faith and know we all care. Hospice care is an excellent idea and it will help both of you.

        • Savannah111 says:

          Boston so so sorry about what you and your mom are going through. I’ll say a prayer for both of you. Hang in there. When I went through my ordeal I spent so long in the hospital about 2 months I lost the use of my legs for sometime I had to have alot of care. My mother is retired and while my husband was working my mom stayed with me until he got home everyday, ** I also had a nurse that came to my home everyday to change bandages etc, and she was really amazing, I wouldnt always have the same nurse everyday but they were all very very nice and professional, They helped me so much.

      • zoekayla says:

        Boston, I am so sorry your mother and you had such a difficult time! I imagine you were so scared – I know I would be. Everyone is right; take advantage of any support for which the insurance will pay. It can take time to set up, but the support is really wonderful for both the client and family/loved ones. I am sending all of my best thoughts to you and your mom. Please let us know how she is doing AND how you are doing. We want to be your refuge in this storm.

      • boston02127 says:

        I will definitely look in to the Hospice. Thank you.

    • twoile says:

      Very sorry your Mom had a setback…but glad she is doing better & will be home soon….very glad U will have visiting nurse (RN). Moms’ Ins will cover Home Health Aides as well as a Homemaker…certainly get all those services 2 make your Mom comfortable & U as well as grandparents available to relax a bit. It would B wonderful 2 visit w/Mom & not have to worry about everything else. Usually the Nurse visits once 2 two xs a week & is required 4 supervision of the adjunct staffing…..this staffing is in great demand so even if u don’t believe u need it now, request it all the same b/c it takes time to put in place.Best 2 you all take care…my previous offer is still available..

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      oh crap, @boston02127. You were so quiet on Thanksgiving, I was hoping nothing went wrong.

      I’m pleased about the visiting nurse, it will give you a break so that when you are caring for your mom alone, you will be able to be more present for her, rather than being completely burned out.

      I know this is a scary and unsettling time for you.

      Please know both you and your mother are in my heart and in my prayers.

      Sending you love.

      • quincyil says:

        I thought Boston was cooking.

        Boston, Catholic Churches have visiting nurses too. The hospital whill know if your Church as help for you. All hospitals have help in this area.

        • boston02127 says:

          @quincy–I did cook. I cooked and cooked and cooked all week leading up to Thursday. I did the stuffing, the mashed pototoes, deserts & 2 breads. The only thing that I needed to do on Thanksgiving was the turkey and heat things up. I ended up cooking the turkey later. We’ll be eating Thanksgiving dinner for 2 more weeks.

    • JazzNightOut says:

      ((((((((((((((((( Boston + Boston’s mom ))))))))))))))))))))))))))) Sending you love and prayers. Agree with looking into hospice. They do help. A friend of mine had hospice during osteoporosis (sp?); helped her tremendously.

    • California35 says:

      Sorry about your mom 😦 glad about the bed and nurse though !

      • justanothermary says:

        Love and prayers coming your way Boston. Make sure to take some time for yourself while the nurses are there. When I was taking care of FIL they were a God send. Even if it was just to go to the grocery store or take a nap, you need to walk away from it once in a while for your own sanity.

      • Adgirl says:

        Boston, that must have scared you to pieces! How is your mom coping with all of the changes? She is so fortunate to have a loving involved daughter.
        I hope there is a good spot in your home for your mom’s bed. I’ve known many people who gave up their livingrooms or dining rooms to their ill family member. It can create a little more stress for everyone.
        If you are able to make a special area for yourself don’t feel guiltly. Everyone needs a place to rest and recharge.
        When my dad became ill and was hospitalized frequently my mother bought a portable stereo and headphones so he could listen to classical music or books on tape.
        Love to you both!!

        • vilzvet says:

          Sorry to hear about your eventful holiday, Boston but hope the nurse will be a big help. Were you able to have a proper dinner? Looking at all these leftovers here and thinking of you and hoping you did not go unfed.

        • boston02127 says:

          @Adgirl–We did move her in the dining room about a year ago. She can’t do the stairs so her bedroom set is set up downstairs. Today we moved her bed back upstairs to the her bedroom to make room for the hospital bed. Also, she does have some of those books on tape. There great, I like them too. Her eyes are bad so she likes to listen to talk radio too.

    • Jeepers1941 says:

      Boston, my mother took care of my father for 10 yrs. before he passed. Then I took care of her for 13 yrs, before she passed away in 1997 at age 90. They both lived with us all those years. I still cherish those yrs even at my age. I often think of the laughs we all shared and shed a few tears when I do, but with a smile across my old ugly puss. You are in my thoughts as you give your Mom, the greatest love a child can give, just loving her and to take care of yourself. You are an amazing young woman…………………………….Jeepers1941

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Thinking of you. Thanks for letting us know and I hope you’ll keep us posted.

      BTW, I tried the cream cheese and olives. Wonderful! Thanks for this!

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      So sorry about your mom but please accept any and all help that is given to you. You need help as many caretakers on this board have had. Take their advice and stay strong.

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      I am happy to hear that you will be getting some help taking care of your mother. I think not only medically but emotionally necessary. I hope that your mothers spirits remain up and she doesn’t have another set back.

      I have so much admiration for you, I am hope for many good things to come your way.

    • ilovelynn says:

      my love and prayers for you and your mom boston. the visiting nurses are wonderful, they practically become part of the family. hospice is also a wonderful service. every time I see your name on this blog I mentally send positive thoughts to you.

  17. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @Duchess of Dryer Lint, I just might have a pic from that era scanned somewhere ;-). If I find it I’ll post it so we can all have a good chuckle.

    • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

      Well, if you are willing to put that out there, I may have to dig up the pics of the big old Madonna hair complete with a big old black lace bow tied in it, with 200 little rubber bracelets on each arm, a flashdance sweat shirt, poofy mini, bobby socks and pumps. I hid them somewhere, now I have to think.

      • quincyil says:

        I have had the Barbara Striesand straight hair since the 60’s. It took a turn for the worst when Princess Dianna was getting married and a hair dresser decided that I would look good with that cut without asking me. It may not be in style, but I like it.

        • Rabble Rouser says:

          OMG- the hair dresser cut off all your hair without even asking? What did you do? I think I would have fainted in my chair.

          When I was little, my parents took us to a $6 hair cutting place and a hairdresser not only cut off all my sisters long hair, but practically shaved the back of it off below the ears- and made this lop sided ‘step'(?) with the hair on top. It kind of looked like a fiar tuck, only she wasn’t bald on the crown. My sister bawled like a baby in the chair- my parents were livid, they took her back the next day to show the manager- who tried to ‘fix’ it but it was unfixable.

          My sister who was before then, the prettiest girl in the class temporary fell from grace and was horrible teased by some of the bullies in the class.

          In someways, it sounds so petty but the experience emotionally scarred her for a long time.

  20. Moonlitcalm says:

    Re: Stanger announcing that the Manzo boys are getting their own spin-off show:

    Are you sure she wasn’t talking about their own episode on her show? I don’t know, I just can’t see them getting their own show. Although, Bravo has definitely shown themselves to be desperate for ratings.

    • California35 says:

      Good point Moon,
      I personally wouldn’t watch it and can’t imagine them getting their own show. By the way, why is she so supportive of a spin off? Is it because the spin off is for guys and not girls? hhmm

    • LynnnSoCal says:

      I remember either at the end of or during RHONJ there was some tweeting by the boys. They said they had some” big news that had to stay secret for now”, is this it, or was it the visit to the Skankster?Either way, I’m done with their over the top, déclassé, everything. Poor New Jersey! I know the whole state isn’t represented here, but there’s probably some that don’t. *sigh*

      • vilzvet says:

        Right, I do remember all those strange tweets, also from Jacqueline, that might be explained by a spin-off show.

    • Need a Hobby says:

      There was an item in the NY Post gossip section saying the Manzo boys were filming their own show. I’m guessing Skanky tweeted after the NY Post item, but I’m not bothering to check.

      Skanky’s a “suck up, kick down” sort of person. Sucks up to folks she thinks can benefit her in some fashion, kicks those she thinks she can afford to without repercussion. She has been known to err in her calculations.

      FWIW, Bravo released a couple announcements a while back on shows in development. Don’t think a Manzo boys’ show was on it. But that doesn’t necessarily mean anything one way or the other.

      • Debbie says:

        I think Stanger is tweeting about the Manzo boy’s show because she wants to take credit for them getting it.. I believe Bravo has said the MM episode the boys appeared on was the highest rated MM ever. Patty most likely thinks that her show paved the way for theirs. A match made in Bravo TV heaven?

        • bdonahueweedman says:

          Sounds very “Diana Ross ‘Presents….The Jackson 5!'” Tranny patti Stanger is a Pig. Ever since calling Bethenny a cow on Twitter (“Any cow can have a baby”) and hooking up with Jill and Tre-Bag, we’ve got her number. The Loud, Obnoxious, Overbearing Windbags of The East. Watching that show is like drinking Epicac. It tastes horrific and then you vomit.

  21. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @TLM, I tried to find a pic on the internet of the nails I’m describing but couldnt find any. Probably because I’m not sure what the proper name for them is. Olivia on Jerseylicious has a modest version of them. They size the tip according to your nail bed and it just gets wider and wider in the end. My friend cannot pick up coins and is always asking someone to pick up her keys because she can’t.
    I have long nails with an overlay myself. The reasons are:
    1. My own nails grow twisty witchy poo and the overlay helps me shape them straight.
    2. As a hairdresser (now retired) the longer than most nails gave me an extra something shampooing clients. I’ve experienced a few customers climaxing at the shampoo bowl **eewwww!!!**
    3.I’m not that conservative, more artsy fartsy and fun 😀

    • quincyil says:

      I work on my nails while waiting for long Lynn Hudson blog comments to drop into my computer. I always look perfect.

    • TLM says:

      I just think the hands’ primary function is FUNCTION, and anything that limits that isn’t worth it. No one should have to ask someone else to pick things up for them! That’s getting into Howard Hughes territory. 😉 Even if the tips widen like you say, they just wind up looking like they were never properly sized or trimmed.

      I do think acrylic is great for nails that are permanently damaged and grow in wavy or misshapen. It will shape to the nail like no plastic tip will, and will protect it.

  22. TEB says:

    Great Blog Lynn! Thanks!

    Big Congrats to HD. Is this your first baby?
    Hugs and well wishes to Boston. You are a special lady 🙂

  23. Powell says:

    Hi Lynn,
    I don’t know why I keep bothering to try and have my comments posted on The Housewives blogs on Bravo.com. The blogs were redesigned, so I thought I would again give it a try. They did post my first few comments, but then this week on the same day I commented on ATL-Phaedra’s blog that I don’t understand why she felt she had to lie about being pregnant before she got married. That she is a grown woman that doesn’t need to hide her pregnancy like she is living in the 50’s. And that is she ashamed, and how she thinks that makes Apollo feel and how her son will feel when he is older. I also posted a second comment stating that based on her only having 14 comments and NeNe and Kandi having over 200 comments that people are not feeling her. Well guess what? Bravotv.com did not post my comments. Does that even make any sense to you. Why would they not post my comments, especially when she only had 14 comments. Then on BevHills-Kyle, I commented on her daughter Portia’s name, since that is also my name. I said I was glad she spelled it correctly and that I hope Portia will appreciate the uniqueness to her name when she is older. I also commented that I didn’t believe that she said to Camille “why would someone be interested in you without Kelsey”, and that the viewers can see how insecure Camille is. Well guess what? Bravotv.com posted that comment because I basically said something nice to Kyle. Next I commented on Camille’s blog that she keeps saying she can do things without Kelsey, come out of Kelsey’s shadow. I commented is she trying to convince herself or the viewers. And I also commented that she is believing what her hairstylist friend tells her that “women have always been jealous of her”, and she is insecure. Well guess what? Bravotv.com did not post my comments. Whenever a fan of The Housewives shows are being brutally honest Bravotv.com doesn’t want to post those comments on the ladies blogs. I know I keep saying it, but it just boggles the mind. The blogs are all apart of the shows. Why don’t want to have the fans comments whether good, bad or indifferent. The only comments I can see not posting are ones that are threatening or have profanity and over the years I have seen some profane comments that I can’t even believe someone would even think those things, let alone post them. But thank you so much for being open to what the fans are saying. Continue the great work Lynn.

  24. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @OMiB, talking about Goth… Remember in the mid 90’s when Chanel came out with “Vamp” lipstick and nail polish color? Remember how everyone went crazy for that black cherry color? Well my mom fell in LOVE with it and then took it to the next level by wearing black lipstick and polish. When she retired and moved back down south she couldn’t find her beloved black anywhere. So I send my 62yr old mom a care package of 10-12 tubes of black lipstick at least twice a year.

    • JazzNightOut says:

      You have the heart of a true “Vamp,” TLD. Does your cat wear nailpolish? Mine would like to, but I think she is still too young.

    • Shylurker says:

      TLD: What a thoughtful daughter you are. I am 65 and my young and hip(22 years younger) daughter trys to keep me updated. She gives me cosmetics that don’t “seem to work for her”. Sometimes they work for me and sometimes they don’t. I guess it shows that she cares and wants me to keep up. LOL

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      OMG- I am imagining dinner at your mother’s house with her black lipstick and the virgin birth Auntie. Tell her to set another place on Sunday- I’m coming.

    • TLM says:

      That is hysterical! Not sure I should mention it, (!) but Chanel also came out with a black polish. I think it was called Liquid Vinyl and was sold out even at the $40 a bottle or whatever they were charging. Frankly, I think black is black is black, and I would recommend Sinful’s “Black on Black” for $2.50 a bottle. It’s also great to have to quiet down colors that are too bright… just add 3-4 drops of black to the bottle.

      • TLM says:

        It’s #219, Black Satin, and I’ve seen it anywhere from $20-$40. It has a tiny bit of shimmer, but it’s so subtle I would go for the Sinful black polish (and I say that as someone who has stared for 1/2 hour at two bottles of polish a half shade apart, trying to decide; now you know the worst there is to know about me.) I personally have gotten away from shimmers and frosts and like the shiny cremes.

    • bdonahueweedman says:

      Not positive what everyone is talking about, but there is a wonderful website called http://www.makeupalley.com that is like an exchange site where you can find out of date/hard to find colors /brands. Also dont forget Ebay…they have just about anything that isn’t made anymore there!

  25. JazzNightOut says:

    Re: Kelly Cutrone tweet to Jill Z. I heard her ‘hook me up’ as get it for me for free. But then I don’t like Kelly Cutrone.

  26. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @JazzNightOut My cat is having none of that mess! He is macho to the nth degree. He won’t even let me put a collar on him. I have a beautifull black collar w/rhinestones that he refuses to sit still for. And if I do manage to get a collar on him, he Hudini’s his way out of it in no time flat 😀

  27. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @JazzNightOut. He has a macho keg 😉 and if I dare use a scrunchy to put my hair up, he sneaks up on me and snatches it out! I’ll be minding my own business and suddenly feel my head jerked back. When I look to see all I get is a glimps of him racing away with my scrunchy in his mouth! He thinks he owns me… I think he does too 😀

    • quincyillinois says:

      Buddy, one of my cats can get the gentle holder for my pony tail out. He loved to do that.

      • Adgirl says:

        @ TrueLifeDiva Your cat is trying to keep you fashionable. Maybe he’s watched that episode of Sex in the City repeatedly where Carrie and Burger argue about scrunchy wearing in Manhatten?

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      That is hilarious!
      no scrunchies for you! Your cat knows a Glamour Don’t when he sees it.

    • California35 says:

      It is funny that today out of all days, I put my hair up on a pony tail. I wanted it out f my face, and the thing that I found faster for my hair, was a scrunchy. One I didn’t even know I had lol.

  28. zoekayla says:

    Awesome blog, Lynn. I can’t believe your dedication! You’re sort of like the Post Office- neither, sleet, nor hail will keep Lynn from her appointed rounds 🙂
    HD congrats! Yours is the first pregnancy announced on this site that makes me happy for the new little one. The fact that Kim is smoking labels her a child abuser in my opinion. Phaedra is nothing more than a fool and her mother is a hypocrit. Not worth my time…but fun to watch as she squirms (literally) when her foolishness is exposed.

  29. California35 says:

    Thanks for the Blog Lynn

    Not interested in the Manzos, Jill’s bedding, Patty and Padrah. In other words, I won’t watch the Manzos or Patty, I won’t buy Jill’s bedding (or book). By the way I will be going to BBB today, I want to get a few things, and will check to see if the have Jill’s bedding. I will let you know.

    Talk to you all later…

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      Cali35 you’re preaching to the choir! LOL None of us “want” to watch the Manzos or Patty and we sure as hell don’t want to buy Jillz sheets…yuck! Hope shopping was fun. 🙂

      • California35 says:

        True 😛

        I didn’t find those sheets, but I didn’t ask because I don’t want to give the wrong impression…that I want them.

  30. quincyillinois says:

    I enjoy the updates on the housewives, Lynn. I’m glad you monitor their comments.

    I can’t believe Patti Stanger announcing the Manzo’s news! It’s just like her bff Jill anouncing Bryn’s birth.
    It’s all about them isn’t it??

      Neither Jill, nor Patti can keep a secret. There is a whole lot of people out there with this problem.

      Best matches for unable to keep a secret syndrome
      2. yenta – (Yiddish) a woman who talks too much; a gossip unable to keep a secret; a woman who spreads rumors and scandal…

      • quincyil says:

        Wow…when I capture a definition, I capture a definition. That was a bit much.

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          You are nothing if not thorough

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          TLM- I think I may be developing a girl crush on you! You tell it like it is.

        • JazzNightOut says:

          I kept waiting for Jill Zarin to be the punch line :-D.

          • quincyil says:

            I think the y stuff lost my point. My point was both Patii and Jill are proud of being yentas.

            • California35 says:

              That is what I was thinking. They say it like it is a good thing. I never knew what it meant, so I appreciate your post 🙂

            • JazzNightOut says:

              They ARE yentas is what I got from this. And they think it is a compliment. If they read this definition, they would say the sources were anti-semetic.

              • Debbie says:

                anyone truly familiar with yiddish would not consider Yenta to be complimentary. My family uses the term in a snarky manner. No one I know would like to be labeled Yenta.
                Now a Yenta could kibbitz about a shiksa and the putz she’s schtuping, and kvell over the tzuris she causes. Then the maligned one could tell the Yenta to ‘gay cocken afin yam’. (Go shit in the ocean) Yiddish curses are decidedly strange. Also, not sure I spelled the above correctly , phonetically. I am sure however, that Jill Zarin’s still an asshole.

                • Had Enough! says:

                  Vey is mir, mein Debaleh! Such a shonda, that Jill. She thinks she is such a balabusta, but really she’s nothing but a schnoring nudnick and a kolboynik.

    @Velzvet Kelsey put up with Camille for all those years because he’s triflin’ too ;-). He probably thought that mess was cute, I mean he DID have two seperate kids by surrogate with her. I’m not cutting him any slack, not after 13yrs.

    • vilzvet says:

      Oh neither am I actually but I’d rather have been married to HIM than HER, wouldn’t you? The lesser of two evils, I guess.

    • Adgirl says:

      Hit. Nail. On. Head.
      Kelsey is probably worse than Camille. Who gave her the idea that her idiotic snotty utterings are interesting or appropiate? Her husband must have encouraged her line of reasoning for years.
      Probably last year someone Kelsey respects “sold him a clue” that his wifey Camille is an embarrassing humourless bitch and not very bright either.
      Afer a meeting with his attorney, Kelsey decided to protect his new tv series money from Camille by launching the divorce before he signed the new contract. Insert new girlfriend anywhere here.

      • quincyil says:

        I can’t imagine being with either one of them.

        I am beginning to like Russell. Did you see his smile when he was making food for the little girl. He’s a great dad. Taylor should reinforce the positive.

        • AZ Girl says:

          I am too. 4 year olds are a handful. He handled Kennedy well and was able to pull off a lunch with his daughter (even though he did not know whether biscuits were baked or microwaved).

        • TLM says:

          Russell struck me as really, really stiff and awkward. Even though he was nice to his kid, I feel a stop sign exudes more warmth. I just feel odd whenever I see him. Did you catch that scene in Las Vegas where Taylor said he didn’t even dance at his OWN WEDDING? How messed up is that? And he was flapping his arms like someone whose neck was broken. This is just someone who literally can’t loosen up, either physically or personality-wise.

          I once read a book that said — excuse the vulgarity — “A man who can’t dance can’t f***.” I have to say that phrase came to mind when watching this guy try to dance opposite his wife. There just isn’t a shred of intimacy there.

        • Kansas Girl says:

          I think Russell is kind of cute.

          But my best friend has announced she has to vet all future men in my life because my judgment is so poor. So never mind me!

      • Amber...Real Wife says:

        Actually Kelsey and Camille’s “story” was on VH1 years ago. He hired an image makeover specialist and publicist who taught Camille how to behave publicly with lessons on etiquette, speaking to press, avoiding paparazzi etc. She was given a glamorous makeover to remove her MTV dancer look with the finest garments as money was no object. He was satisfied for a while.

        • quincyil says:

          So she is his creation. No wonder she keeps mentioning odd books. She just doesn’t seem the European lit type to me.

          BTW… I was right about “The Art of War” that Camille was reading being the 6th Century Chinese text which has been read in some university business schools and not the book by Machiavelle who also wrote a book on war in 1520. I knew the Machiavelle book was a classic, but why would it benefit Camille when it is from the perspective of a citizen of Florence. The Chinese book has been use by Asians for military and now economic strategies. Our military reads it at West Point. I asked someone who went there and had those courses about the book.

          She probably used Machiavellic because she’s Italian and into that family who as you all know turned torture into an art form. I wonder if the film producers knew any of this and were simply trying to fool us.

          • Mimisfbay says:

            Hilarious, when I heard her use that word I was dumbstruck. Didn’t she mean Machiavellian? He did, after all, write The Prince and so I am sure that Kelsey Grammer throws the word around. Ah, Machiavellian, all of that cunning and duplicity. I feel certain that we can all agree that KG is a self absorbed prig and that Camille was a perfect little Pygmalion for him(well at one time). Machiavelliac??? Wha?
            Okay, now about that JZ bedding set with the awful print and in…polyester? $200? That stuff will sit and be in Marshalls before long.
            Oh how I love all of this!
            The Manzo boys getting a show? Hilarious. PS blabbing on Twitter about it? Hilarious.
            Thank you so much for a fun blog and comments to read while sipping tea!!!

        • TLM says:

          Great, so she was his little Pygmalion experiment. I think it’s obvious he created a monster. She is the worst of both, unfortunately: spoiled yet uneducated, unworldly and uninsightful.

          So she kept him alive and he dressed her in cashmere. I think she must have skipped class the day etiquette lessons were scheduled.

          • quincyil says:

            Remember Tamara having the dinner party after having lessons with the etiquette coach?

            Or… the Countess at the table with the girls talking about how to cut chicken?

            or Bethenny who was going to stab something if Jill mentioned a birthday gift?

            My life is so mundane.

            • Adgirl says:

              “stab her (Jill’s) eye out” IIRC.
              Because Jill was ranting on & on about the price or value of an item of jewelry Jason 1.0 did or did not purchase for Bethenny.

      OMG! Congratulations.

      I saw all the posts above with people congratulating you but I didn’t see what it was in reference to. I was going to make a post to ask-and I hoped that it was baby news. Now I see that it is. I am so happy for you.

      I am looking forward to you sharing with all the joys of pregnancy- and even the common complaints like morning sickness or heartburn:)

    • MichellefromNY says:

      Congrats HD!!
      I’m due on Friday so while you’re enjoying the beginning your pregnancy I’m sitting on my butt waiting for it to end!! lol
      Enjoy the next eight months and make sure your hubby knows to give you nightly foot and back rubs and to be extra understanding when you can’t do the laundry or make him dinner. And when a random person touches your belly, you have EVERY right to give them the death stare!
      Looking forward to more updates!

      • Kansas Girl says:

        Michelle! Congratulations! Did we know this? Quick, someone call the ballerinas for a shower!

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        Please let us know when the time comes and update us.

        • MichellefromNY says:

          Thanks so much everyone!! My hubby and I really appreciate it!! I will definitely let you all know when it happens.

      • quincyil says:

        Hey, I want to know that you and the baby are ok too. I hope you feel well. I know how hard it is at the end.

        • MichellefromNY says:

          I’m ok but I feel so huuuge. And it’s my first so I’ve been freaking out about going through labor but other than that I’m just enjoying my last few days of sleeping late and unlimited amount of bravo tv!

    • California35 says:

      I am glad you said this now. I noticed people congratulating you, but didn’t know or was sure why.


      No Phaedra’s baby shower please lol

      • MichellefromNY says:

        Oh god no. I’m actually not having a shower. In my community people just give gifts after you announce the birth. But if I were to have a shower, it would be much smaller and nicer than phaedra’s tack-fest

        • California35 says:

          Lol – yeah I don’t think anyone will have one like her.

          My sister in law just had her first baby a week ago, and it was a boy. My sister will have a baby girl, I’m not sure when is the due date, but she is about 5 months along. I gave her a bunch of things already, and plan not to host her a baby shower. I do feel that she would like one, so I guess we’ll see. I just rather spend the money on her and baby 🙂

    Boston2’s home nurse miracle
    reminded me
    We had a recent miracle to !

    WSM & I r the medical proxy for an 88yr old WW II, purple heart vet, who has no living relatives. The Lord gave him to us 8 years ago when I met him in our neighborhood. 3 yrs ago we ,with the help of a dedicated social worker, got Sarge in an assisted living home.
    In April all his upper teeth were taken out by a Dr. to get dentures.
    4 months later & 15pounds lost ; the dentist’s office says he is permanently rejected to get his dentures for another 4 years.
    WSM takes over to learn the glitch ,that both the “insurance specialist” at the dentist & ast. living soc.worker can’t fix. WSM discovers the problem & Sarge gets approval for his teeth !
    I accompany Sarge to a different dentist at Roosevelt Hospital that is somehow now connected w/the assisted living home. After a very long wait he is seen. I am confused cuz it seems it was by a student Dr. who did nothing.
    The appointment nurse says Sarge will have his next appointment in 6weeks. I deal w/a woman who doesn’t care that he is 88 & been w/o teeth for 5 months.
    I hailed the student Dr. & he helped me get a 4 week out appointment. I forced the issue & got 4 more appointments scheduled hoping Sarge would have teeth in another 4 months.

    Meantime we get reports that Sarge is acting aggressive & “this home may not be the right home for Sarge”
    (That’s another battle but something we r told happens to many people once the homes have all the $$ )

    Any way ,on a rainy day, I take Sarge for his 2nd appointment at Roosevelt . We wait 3 Hours ! Needless to say I am not happy .
    Sarge, who is napping ,wakes up & says he has to go to the John. Sarge walks with a walker & needs help to visit the John . Again, I am not happy that Sarge’s dignity could b compromised due to the poor scheduling.
    I stand up, push open the closed door where the exam rooms r & start yelling that I NEED some HELP NOW.
    A very kind Dr. rushes to me & I detail the entire long story.
    He helped me bring Sarge in and
    Saw him immediately.
    The kind Dr. told me that he would b happy to come to Sarge at his home and get his teeth ASAP. He said that the paperwork would have to b resubmitted but he could do that using the paper work he already has. He said it should take 3 weeks for the papers to b resubmit ed & then in 4weeks the dentures would b in.
    I said I didn’t think his home had a dental chair. Dr. Said I only need a straight back chair.
    We have 1 more visit to go & Sarge should b able to eat again.

    There are still miracles and we thank the Lord for Dr. Lish

    • quincyil says:

      You helped a street person? I think that’s admirable, WSL. We have indigents here too because of the economy. Our Salvation Army and a couple of Churches have food programs and shelters. It’s not easy. Some won’t go when volunteers try to get help for them.

    • AZ Girl says:

      Way to go WSL! Well done.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      The squeaky wheel gets oiled again!

    • Kansas Girl says:

      You are an angel. I bet Sarge worships the ground you walk on, in a grouchy, Sarge-like way. Could be his mood will improve when he can eat regular food again!

    • twoile says:

      WSL/M…When Health Care became Health Business, advocacy on behalf of those in need also became overwhelmingly necessary. You both R a blessing 2 take that on & performing w/excellence. Bravo(not tv) 2 you both, & may Sarge enjoy his new dentures.

    Boston: You are in my prayers sweet girl. You can also get wheelchair, walkers, pottychairs, showerchairs from numberous agencies.

  40. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @TLM I agree, black is black is black! I try to buy Wet n Wild or any brand that is 1.99 a tube. She goes thru an average of 30 lipsticks a year! If I had to pay 40.00 a tube she would have to just whistle for it 😀 (pun intended). I get away with just one bottle of polish a year since she favors a frosty pearl on her fingers and that is easily found in Alabama.

    And I agree about the dancing thing too ;-). Its not the foot or hand size that counts. If a man looks like he’s having a seizure on the dance floor, he’s gonna disappoint in the bedroom. I’ve never met a bad dancer who was good in bed :-(. Now I use that as a test. Dancing within the first month of dating and that determines if you make it to “the next level”.

    • TLM says:

      I don’t think I would ever get to the point of sex with someone who can’t dance for reasons other than being physically disabled. It’s just a real turnoff to me because it just conveys a lack of warmth and an inability to relax. I don’t feel like I can get close to people like that.

    • quincyil says:

      How many men have you tested? LOL… To make the statement you have to look at sampling and probability. 3,000 would be a good number for the 15o,000,000 men in the US. rotfl

    Re TMZ and Kim still smoking…

    Did any of you read some of the comments from nitwits who maintain that is better to still smoke during pregnancy than to subject the baby to the stress of quitting. Or how they smoked (or their spouse) and their baby came out fine.


    If someone wants to smoke (being pregnant or not) their is no law stopping them-but medically it’s a very poor choice. How can those morons even debate that?

    • read in UK medical book says:

      I’m glad someone mentioned that. Quitting smoking cold turkey is not always the recommended thing to do for a pregnant woman.
      It really is between the woman and her doctor.
      There are ways to cut down and ways to quit that are safe. But I did read in a UK nursing manual that quitting cold turkey could cause a miscarriage.
      I don’t think it is stress more of a physical withdrawal, maybe hormone related.
      Usually morning sickness will help someone finish quitting while pregnant, but some people continue all 9 months, but they do not inhale, or inhale as little as possible.
      I don’t know what the current medical protocol is for a mother who smokes tobacco, but I’m pretty sure that quitting abruptly is not what is recommended. People should ask their own doctors.

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        There is no medical evidence to prove that quitting smoking while pregnant is ‘stressful’ on enough on the baby to cause ill effects. But there is plenty enough to support that smoking while pregnant can be have a devastating effect.

        That sow Kim Z has no intention of quitting, we have seen her smoke in the home only a few feet away from her children. I don’t know any modern day parent who does that. She should be more interested in applying the knowledge from her ‘nursing degree’ for the health of her own children than talking about Phaedra’s.

        • twoile says:

          OT is there a resource 2 find out where & what kind of Nursing “degree” Kim may have earned?I remember that upstream someone mentioned U.Conn.

          • twoile says:

            OT UPdate U.Conn awards BS through PhD & for the life of me I can’t believe Kim successfully completed a 4yr program 4 a BS Nursing…….they do not list a LPN prog or any Med Assist type of Prog…BS is the “lowest” one 2 succeed at. I wonder if Kims’ memory is faulty.

            • Rabble Rouser says:

              I don’t think she got a 4 year degree either. Given her current age (which is 32- hard to beleive but it’s confirmed) Brielle is 13- which would have made her 19 when she had her. I doubt Kim graduated HS at 15.

              I know that Kate Gosselin was a labor and delivery nurse and she took some 2 year course. I imagine Kim did the same.

  46. MichellefromNY says:

    I’m confused. Isn’t kelly divorced?? If so, how is she supposed to get stuff from her “sister-in-law”?? She can easily say “sea’s aunt got her”. But no, she ALWAYS has to make a point that she’s a frickin bensimon.

    Sorry kelly, but no matter how much you try to associate yourself to your bensimon namesake you’re not a bensimon anymore. You frickin divorced him say about ten years ago. Please, for the sake of humanity, give up the bensimon surname and stick with your maiden name “killoren”.

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      Umm- her brother’s wife would be her sister in law. I assumed that is who she is referring too. But, you are still correct in many ways, she cashes in on her ex-husbands fame anyway she can.

      • MichellefromNY says:

        oh right. I forgot she had a brother. She’s so narcisstic it’s easy to forget that she has siblings.

          Do recall reading that KBB has a twin brother.

            Yes, Kelly DOES have a twin brother. I’ll try to find the family pic I saw of them from not too long ago..but not identical twins. Kelly does speak of her twin, but not very often…think i actually read it 1st in article, than asked her.
            I think people were asking Kelly on twitter if her brother was as dumb as her…does he wash his hair, etc. but i think she ignored all questions pertaining to him, TOM..i think.

    @QuincyIl, I think your family members will pass the test unless they move like Elaine from Seinfeld fame. It’s the stiff, painfull looking gyrations we are commenting on. The kind of dancing that incites giggles from those who witness it ;-). Not everyone can be a Solid Gold Dancer or a Fly Girl (in living color/ Jlo shout out) but an ability to keep a beat is mandatory.

    • quincyil says:

      Good to know. I think that there are a lot of men and women here who never dance. We don’t have clubs and the once a year high school dance is only once a year.

    • JazzNightOut says:

      What does this say about Sheree from RHOA? She can’t dance (which we saw), and NeNe said she has never seen her even snap her fingers to the beat.

      • TLM says:

        I was in shock watching Sheree after she said 1) that her routine was extremely challenging compared to other competitors, and 2) that she thought she presented a threat to the other contestants. Another woman was swung around on the floor, and all Sheree did was strut back and forth. I’ve seen routines at 1st-grade dance recitals that were more demanding.

  49. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @QuincyIl In regards to the caffeine, baby steps. Start off by not consuming any after 6:00 pm and no more than two beverages (cola, coffee, energy drinks) a day. See if after a few weeks your sleep improves with those small changes. Cold turkey is hard to do if you’re caffeine dependent.

    • quincyil says:

      I can feel that it’s very hard. My head is pounding. I should have done it slowly, but I thought that I have 4 days where I am not near a coffee pot. My husband drinks tea, but at work we drink coffee all day long.

      Last year, Kelly went to Miami Beach’s Hilton Fontainebleau about five times. I wanted to stay there when we went in Jan., but we couldn’t get reservations. She just decides to go and gets in. She probably gets it free too. They take photos of her at the pool and on the beach, then they publish them.


    • TLM says:

      When is this woman going to stop trying to compete with Bethenny and realize how ridiculous and obsessed she looks? Bethenny shows recipes, Kelly posts disgusting-looking failed experiments in her kitchen. Bethenny launches a bottled cocktail, Kelly announces she mixed lemonade and beer together, thus she invented a drink, everyone should try it! Bethenny shares where she got many different things at good prices after people ask her about them, and this idiot gets photograhed in an H&M dress looking like an escaped mental patient in a summer orange dress with black opaque tights, and supposedly she’s giving everyone great tips on shopping. What was that color scheme inspired by, a jack-o-lantern?

      If Kelly is interested in charity, why doesn’t she do something like work with a charity that does animal therapy with mentally disabled or at-risk youth, and facilitate them working with horses, since she’s such an equestrian? Since she has ties to the fashion industry, how about working with a label like Champion or Hanes to get socks, underwear and sweats to poor kids? No, instead she talks about dropping off 2 boxes of cereal. This woman is a total dingbat and obsessed with B to the point where I would be nervous if I were B.

      • aquamarinecandy-o83 says:

        The Scary Island episode finally aired in Canada this weekend, holy crap, did Kelly go mental on the island!!!! My husband actually sat through part of the episode (we saw Kelly in NYC last April at the Denim Drive charity event so he was interested to see her as she appears on TV…..wasn’t THAT a shock for him!! hahaha) , we both swore she was in a drug withdrawal. The way she was sweating, couldn’t sit still, accusing everyone of outlandish things and not speaking in coherent sentences was alarming. Totally a drug withdrawal.

    TMZ created this scorecard on RH.
    Orange County has 12 divorces?
    Let’s see.if we can name them.. Vicki 2, Tamra 2, Jeanna 0, Gretchen…??

    • Adgirl says:

      sorry that got scrunched up. It looked fine before!

    • scorpiosue1102 says:

      I’m guessing Laurie had one, Tammy Knickerbocker had one as did Alexis Bellino. Wasn’t there that woman Quinn who was the cougar? I think she was divorced at least once.

      • TLM says:

        Quinn Fry is divorced, but I can see how people might not think of her that way. She’s the only woman divorced and with a grown child who went into a seizure any time she had to seriously talk about s-e-x (I don’t think she spelled it out on the show — even that would have been too explicit for Quinn). It was incredibly annoying. She had the mentality of an 11-year old girl.

        • Had Enough! says:

          Yup, that Kidiot really does freak out about sex, doesn’t she? Oh wait, sorry. Wrong adult divorced woman with children and the mentality of an 11-yr-old.

    • scorpiosue1102 says:

      Oh, Jeana was divorced before too.

      • Adgirl says:

        OC divorce meter so far:
        Vicki 2 (includes Donn I assume)
        Jeana 1
        Laurie 1
        Quinn 1
        Alexia 1
        Tamra 2 (includes Simon I assume)

        that’s 8. Need 4 more.

        • justanothermary says:

          Not sure but I think Laurie was divorced twice. Then there was Tammy Knickerbacker, she was divorced. Do they count Slade Slimey? He’s divorced.

        • kmuellfa says:

          I think Gretchen has been married.

        • scorpiosue1102 says:

          Gretchen has never been married. I think that Quinn lady was married twice. Isn’t there talk of some new girls since we know Lynn is gone? Maybe they’ve been divorced.

        • Had Enough! says:

          Unless Jeana was married to and divorced from someone before Matt, she’s not divorced. And everyone thinks “oh Jeana is so good to take care of Matt” but here’s what I think. I think most of the dough came from Matt’s baseball career and subsequent pension/payment for the injury and/or whatever insurance he had against career-ending injuries. My guess is that major league contracts have some pretty hefty payouts for something like that – I’m sure those guys don’t just file pathetic little state worker’s comp claims. And he probably had a huge disability insurance payment, too. So she divorces Matt and all that goes bye-bye. That’s my guess.

          • justanothermary says:

            Jeana talked about working with her ex-husband in the real estate business. Her divorce from Matt would be divorce 2.

    Our gal, Bethenny, goes all naturale


    No doubt about it, Bethenny, is keeping it real on way to SWTS for additional ice
    time before the competition.

  53. Adgirl says:

    While you gals were talking about poor dancers (rotfl!) I was just catching up on comments upthread about Russell not dancing at his own wedding. Let me tell you I am married to a total nerd-geek who couldn’t dance even if Deputy Dawg were firing a six gun at his feet.
    I believe some people just don’t have the gift of being relaxed in social situations. I adore my husband but his charms do not include being a gracious host or dancing. It makes entertaining an extra chore because Mr IQ 175 doesn’t even notice when guest’s drink glasses are empty or if they need their coats taken at the door. If I mention it to him I get the 20 mile stare “huh?”.

    • TEB says:

      Adgirl- we didn’t dance at our wedding either. My wonderful husband is also Type 1 diabetic and we didn’t have a wedding cake either (to the shock of many). We had desert- but not the whole wedding cake (must eat) situation.
      He’s probably a geek but I love him so much I don’t notice.

    • JazzNightOut says:

      “I am married to a total nerd-geek who couldn’t dance even if Deputy Dawg were firing a six gun at his feet.” ……………….. still laughing, lolololol.

  54. Adgirl says:

    OMG! Here’s the answer to Kim Z’s income! according to absurdtosublime.net she gets:
    In the divorce settlement from Daniel Toce, Kim Zolciak of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, receives $30,000 per month in child support. They were only married from 2001-2003, and he is the father of Arianna, her youngest. She also gets $250k per year in alimony.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      @adgirl- you have an email

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      Is she getting the 30k for just the youngest or did does he have to support the older one too? I have heard about men sometimes having to support children who aren’t biologically theirs if they ‘accepted’ the children and supported them during the relationship.

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Holy moly, I think my hair just flew up in shock. It explains a lot. She did say last season that she was really smart with her money early on. Perhaps she meant in her divorce planning.

      • Adgirl says:

        One thing I really admire about Kim is she didn’t over spend on real estate. She lives in an attached home in a nice neighborhood but it isn’t grand at all. She apparently hasn’t moved in years (or upgraded). I think she has smart CPA who gives her good advice and she smartly takes it.

        • MichellefromNY says:

          agreed. We definitely won’t be hearing bankruptcy claims from her anytime soon.

          • HD says:

            I have been wanting to know this soooooooooooo bad! Thank you! I wanted to know how she afforded such a lavish lifestyle. I knew Big Poppa just could not be buying Kim EVERYTHING!

            I have to admit Kim has been very smart with her money. She played the game and it appears she is winning. Now she just set herself up for more money with her pregnancy by the NFL guy (or it could be love….hmmm). This woman is smarter than she appears.

          • quincyil says:

            I don’t know. Others have had more income. If you spend 60,000 on a child’s bed room, you money will go very quickly.

            She’s smart to get it in child support so there is no tax. Plus, she secured future income from the football player with the pregnancy so she should have income for the next 20 years or so.

            I just can’t believe that a 25 year old foot ball star would plan a pregnancy with a 32 year old who looks older. He must have gotten hit in the head while playing football.

    • Had Enough! says:

      OK, seriously. Life sucks. This disgusting woman gets major scratch like that just because she was married to the son of a rich guy for three years?

      • quincyil says:

        How long was Kim Richards married to Gregory Davis? I think it was a couple of years. She got a great settlement too, yet Kyle said Kim lost a lot in the divorce.

        I think mothers and children should get help from fathers, but it seems to be a cottage industry with some women.

        • Rabble Rouser says:

          I think I read the Davis family was having a lot of finical problems. Apparently, Marvin Davis revoked all the trusts sometime before his death and must have made some poor choices. One of his daughters is trying to sue the estate saying that her father pillaged their trusts of hundred of millions of dollars before he died- and now the money is GONE. I think the estate offered her 10 million to go away and she turned it down- and now it’s not even known that when the time comes (her mothers passing) that she will get even that.

          I think Gummi bear and Greasy Bear Davis might have to resolve themselves to the strong possibility they will have to find jobs.

          It seems like there are grown children (both men and women) of wealthy people seem reliant on family fortune.

          I beleive Warren Buffet once said something to the effect (when he talked about leaving most of his money to charity) that he plans to leave his children enough money that they can do something, but not so much that they don’t have do anything.

      • IMJ says:

        I totally agree. I dont even understand whats the lure of Kim Zolciak. Shes attractive but not beautiful. Shes not intelligent. Shes cunning and wylie so that might be how shes gotten far in life.

    • TLM says:

      Why does this lunatic keep on saying that she would waitress at Bahama Breeze, as if that would replace her income?

  55. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @JazzNightOut, it says exactly what you think it does about Sheree ;-). She is from the ‘hood and hangs out with “Pookie n ’em”, she should know how to stay on beat! I bet she messes up The Electric Slide at every wedding recption.

  56. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @JazzNightOut, she probably can’t Bunny Hop either even though most pre-schoolers can. Remember the 1st date with Dr. BaldSpot? She was in pants acting like it was her first time wearing high heels. She’d probably mess up The Bunny Hop and blame her 5″ Jimmy Choo’s for being off beat 😀

    • TLM says:

      Yes, that is the same “King Lear” dress I posted Jill in in another photo. I keep wondering if Richard Burton is going to come back from the dead when I see her in that. Either that or Jill is going to go back in time to host the old Carol Burnett Show.

    • twoile says:

      The pics leave me with the query “was this a costume do” ….. I never saw Jill in such a horrible outfit….& poor Aly, her dress did nothing 4 her…..Ramona looks gr8…love her hair too. A&S also ? costume? not flattering but S looks as always but A looks more like a costume. The remainder as usual not gr8. Pretty apprapo (sic) that KK “opens” a toilet in Times Sq……rofl

      • TLM says:

        I find it a sad symbol of our society that Kim Kardashian has a multi-million dollar home and a full schedule of photo ops and endorsement deals, all borne out of having, as Joel McHale said, “A big ass and a sex tape.” That Matt Lauer took up valuable airtime to interview this whiny girl as “one of the most fascinating people of 2010” on the Today Show is disturbing. Today is a morning show, but it’s also serious news. They couldn’t find another person who did something to help rebuild from Katrina, or a veteran from Iraq, or a member of Congress who did something extraordinary? Kim Kardashian…seriously Matt??!?

    • quincyil says:

      I am always been camera shy and hated my photos, but after spending time over the last few months looking as some of the photos you girls bring here, I think I look ok. I actually think that some of my photos are better than the photos here. If Taylor, thinks that smile and look are attractive, I am ready for reality tv at 58 years old.

  64. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @Wall st. Lady, my grandmother made it. She was known for experimenting with food coloring a lot :-). I have no idea what flavor it was, probably just vanilla. What she was really good at making were sweet potato pies, poundcakes, and berry cobblers. I learned how to make her sweet potato pie but I wish I had her poundcake and cobbler recipes. She never measured, just “eyed” it.

    I always check news, although we never leave our little cocoon. I’m getting worried about North Korea. They are worse that our trolls because they have nukes and aren’t afraid to use them.

    • Had Enough! says:

      But Sarah Palin is standing by North Korea so all is going to be OK.

      • quincyil says:

        I think that they will attack South Korea and cause a huge ripple in the economic stability of Asia.

        I think it’s winter in North Korea and they are starving to death so they have no reason not to attack.

        A while back, I read that they used the Mark Twain books in their schools to show how racist and horrible Americans were. Mark Twain was not racist. He was friends with Abolitionists in Hartvard, CT. I know his early history in Hannibal, Mo. too.
        His house manager and best friend for his whole married life was a Black man who raised a successful family.

                Except that her tongue slips pretty much every time she opens her mouth. With Obama, it came after 15 exhausting months of campaigning. And the scary thing is that with Palin, you never know if this is really her level of knowledge or if it is a slip of the tongue…

  71. Had Enough! says:

    You know, I was watching What Not to Wear the other night and I realized (duh) that the participants are nominated by their friends and family. Now, none of us that I know of would consider ourselves to be friends of Jill’s Trained Sasquatch, but honestly, do you know anyone more deserving than she of a professional makeover? I can just see her in the three-way mirror, Stacey saying that no one over the age of 8 should be wearing a tutu. Or that brown garbage bag dress she wore to the GLAAD thing (see RealityTea). Her choice of swim wear, which highlights every bit of her freakazoid body. The shaggy bath mat vests. And of course the coochie-length shirts that she seems to think are dresses. Or that pink pajama bottoms with pink pointy high heels are not a fashion statement. Not trendy, not smokin hot. Just a joke.

    Maybe they can convince her that it is NOT Halloween 365 days per year.

    I would LOVE to watch them explain age-appropriate to the Kidiot. I would give anything to have them explain to her that you should highlight your best assets, but that doesn’t mean being vulgar about it. And then Carmindy can teach her how to apply make-up without looking greasy and Nick can do something about that horrible hair.

    • quincyil says:

      Speaking of hair…. Are 40 plus and 50 something women in your towns and cities sporting long hair? They aren’t here. The Kyle Richards, Kim Richards, Jill Zarin, Bethenny Frankel hair styles are not in style even with our young here. I think Jill feels that the long hair makes her look younger.

      I watched WWHL with Kyle and Isaac from ‘The Fashion Show” and noticed that Isaac really thinks the housewives aren’t fooling him when it comes to age.
      Andy said that Isaac was 2011. Is there a trend towards the more natural?
      I think it won’t happen. The women on our show are terribly afraid of aging and they can’t walk away from fillers as Isaac suggested. Their financial stability depends on how they look.

      When I saw Versache with Rachel Zoe, I was horrified. She looked like a monster to me. I haven’t noticed many of the actresses, but Dianne Keaton didn’t seem to have much work done in the past few years. In Sex and the City 2, I thought Samatha looked very artificial. She looked great in her 40’s and early 50s.

      I’m hoping for a career in movies now that the actresses all look 20 years old. There is going to be a huge call for almost 60 year old women who look almost 60. In those historical movies, no one had a Greek masque on except the men in the Greek Chorus wearing Greek masques that made them look like women.

      • cusi77 says:

        I read somewhere -do not recall where- that Dianne Keaton said she refuses any kind of surgery… I think is better to not play around with facelift, botox, etc. I swear I am 56 and my face looks fresher than Taylor’s and Camille’s… or perhaps I need eyeglasses…lol.

              A while ago, the oral surgeon (DDS,) came over to our table in a restaurant to tell me that he thought I looked great, but that was about the weight loss and development of lean muscles. I have the body of a 20 year old, the face of a 4o year old and the mind of a toddler.

    • Kansas Girl says:

      It would be interesting to see how much better they could make her look. But I don’t think she’d listen to them. She doesn’t seem to listen well and I don’t think they could get through to her. If she even agreed to a make-over. I think she’d feel they were far beneath her.

    • TLM says:

      I loved Bethenny in a tutu she wore to throw a housewarming on BGM. And she was pregnant! I think each person can pull off different things. There should be no hard-and-fast rules in fashion.

      • Had Enough! says:

        You know I forgot about that – it was actually a tulle miniskirt. Yes, Bethenny looked better in this skirt than the Kidiot looked in her tutu (at Tao in Las Vegas) but neither one of them looked good. Melissa Gorga looked ridiculous in her sequined top/tutu bottom at the Posche fashion show, too.

  72. Had Enough! says:

    The newest line of crap from Jill’s Trained Sasquatch is still not on the Intermix website. It is still not on the Blue and Cream website. And…it is not on the Kidiot’s own website:


    The old “Pocahantas Goes to the Disco” “collection” is still up.

  73. Had Enough! says:

    The Kidiot in a silver hair salon robe:


    How long before the Kidiot shows up on ice skates?

    Ya know – she might be the one person that Stacey and Clinton actually dress in baggy sweaters and shapeless jeans. Anything to cover up that freakazoid body.

    • TLM says:

      Why is it that Kelly always does the same pose, throwing her shoulders back and sticking her chest way out? Isn’t she a professional model? I always feel it looks like something is dislocated when she stands like that. It’s definitely not flattering. Teresa always does the same dumb pose in every photo op with an obviously fake smile and hand on the hip, but I would expect that because she was never a model.

    • AZ Girl says:

      Personally I think KKB is getting “thick” around the middle. She never did have much of a waist. She does not pose naturally.

  74. Kokuanani says:

    I’ve been “away” for several days, and didn’t know where to post this, but on the topic of “who could carry her own show,” I was surprised that folks didn’t mention Alex.

    I think a show on her life would be really interesting. She doesn’t have the high-powered business life that Bethenny does, but between Simon and the boys, I think it would make for interesting television.

    Certainly more interesting than watching Jill sell insurance.

    • quincyil says:

      I love Simon. LOL. I think Alex could have a show, but she needs to show us her lighter side.

      The Manzos having a show of their own is not surprising. Having Bravo jump on the NJ train is something that Andy would promote. I don’t find Caroline interesting enough for a show, but the antics of her sons at the Brownstone is even less interesting to me. Perhaps, the Brownstone will become the Love Boat and other reality stars will visit to have weekend romps under the gables of that really old building.

      • Had Enough! says:

        Well, if they do get their own show, it will be worth it just to watch Teresa’s head blow up.

        • cusi77 says:

          Teresa would be great! IF… notice “IF” she would have an ounce of Bethenney honesty and put her real life and how she is trying to get out her financial catastrophe she created while overspending like there where not tomorrow.

  75. Had Enough! says:

    As Ally is now an adult and she could avoid the spotlight and choses not to do so, I feel it is OK to comment on her. And my comment is “Ally – not a good look on you.” I don’t believe that heavy women should hide in black dresses, but a low-cut, sleeveless dress with cut-outs on the side, in a shape that accentuates the middle, in apple green (the Reality Tea photo is washed out; it is actually much brighter) is so not flattering.

    However, she sure looks better than the Kidiot in her brown Lanvin-my-ass bunched-up trashbag.

    It just felt like this word should be known here.

    I knew Gayle on Jerseylicious reminded me of someone!!! She’s a dead ringer for a younger Anne Meara. Even the voice is the same. Check out this interview of Anne, who is now 81: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0TNr2s2mKA&feature=fvw
    Anne has also kept her hair red and used to wear it the same length as Gayle’s when she was Gayle’s age.

    Kim aint that smart, just lucky. This latest gold digger move with Kroy is a major FAIL. He’s 25yrs old so he’s only got approx 10 yrs left to play and amass his “fortune”. Football money is not guaranteed, look at Lisa Hartwell’s hubby and Kendra Wilkerson’s hubby. Absurd to Sublime reported last week Kroy’s contract with the Atlanta Falcons is for 4yrs and 1.88 million dollars. He’s a pro baller getting $400,000 a year! And he might not get the whole 1.88 if he’s injured or dropped. And knocking up Kim less than 6 months after meeting her tells me he’s mighty stupid. Kim gets an “F” in Gold Digger101 at the Atlanta Learning Annex 😉

    • HD says:

      I think she did pretty good. $250,000 a year plus $30, 000 a month. She is getting more doing nothing than most people will ever make in their lifetime annually. On top of that money, she had Big Poppa’s money. Now that is gone but she has Kroy’s money to support the baby, etc. Also she “suckered” Kandi on her money for Tardy for the Party and no telling how much she made on that. I think she is very slick.Then she is even more slick and has a garage sale with stuff she doesn’t use and even gets NeNe who apparently needs all her money to buy a bedroom set from her. Out of all of the women on the show (minus Kandi and Phaedra) you never hear about her in foreclosure, losing her cars, declaring bankruptcy or nothing. Then if all else fails apparently she has some type of nursing degree to fall back on if need be. She made out like a bandit. She is one of the smarter woman on that show in my opinion when it comes to getting her money.

      • cusi77 says:

        Congrats on the New Baby, HD!

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        I wonder how long she will get the 25ok for. I know sometimes, depending on what is written in the divorce degree she might only get spousal support for X number of years.

        I think child support is typically till 18 unless there are some other circumstances. I have heard it going to 21 if the adult child is in school.

    Arrived home late last night. About 9 hours after we left the hotel and made a couple of stops. SOOOO happy to be home and pick up our pups from their little doggie play land jail. I’m reading about the Manzo boys and have to say who will watch this? Perhaps young girls who think they are cool guys. Not saying they aren’t because from what I have seen they are decent guys who seem to work, go to school and behave more like normal young men (have 2 sons who have a boat load of friends so I know young men LOL!) but…kind of a snooze fest is what I would predict. As for Kim Z. Shame on her. She is funny to watch sometimes but …wow…to get pregnant by a 25 year old you pretty much picked up at a charity event is more than tacky. OY! What a hot mess. ~Jill Z and her line of bedding and go door to door to try and sell it. BB & B sells so many brands and I would buy Wamsutta over hers or anyone else’s any day of the week. What happened to her line being in the “upscale” stores? Did they turn the snarky old thing away?

    That idiot on SWTS was so obviously targeting Bethenny. I really didn’t think her performance was that bad! Am I missing something? Yes, she seemed uncertain but those lifts and twirls were damn good and better than Sean whatever her name is.
    Definitely a JillZarin agent. He looks like an elf with bad hair, by the way.

    Wow. Those hours in the car made for one cranky me this morning LOL!

    Good morning everyone! A short Love Story to smile

    A man and a woman who had never met before,
    but who were both married to other people,
    found themselves assigned to the same sleeping room on a trans-continental train.

    Though initially embarrassed and uneasy over sharing a room,
    they were both very tired and fell asleep quickly, he in the upper beth and she in the lower.

    At 1:00 AM, the man leaned down and gently woke the woman saying,………. ‘Ma’am,

    I’m sorry to bother you, but would you be willing to reach into the closet to get me a second blanket?

    I’m awfully cold.’

    ‘I have a better idea,’ she replied ‘Just for tonight,…… let’s pretend that we’re married.’

    ‘Wow!………………… That’s a great idea!’, he exclaimed.

    ‘Good,’ she replied. ………….’Get your own freeking blanket.’

    After a moment of silence, ………………….he farted.

    Quincy, I’m not wanting to start a current events thread but since you mentioned them upthread I thought I’d share a few links I read daily.

    debka.com is an Israeli site
    stevenmcollins.com Click on the blog icon at the top. Articles have links to back up the info.

    Ok back to Housewife snark. 😀

    • quincyil says:

      Yeah… I hate bringing the world into our little space. I got scared when I glanced out of the window for a second. Thanks for those links. I try to keep in mind perspectives from all sides when I read and study.

  83. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @HD, Kroy’s money is not guaranteed like most people are assuming. That was my main point. People are saying this new baby is guaranteeing her additional income for the 18-20yrs. But Kroy is not a high profile, endorsement having, highly paid player. She is set based on her divorce/child support from her first two kids dad but this Kroy thing will not pan out the same way. Big Poppa bought jewelry, leased cars, and funded lavish vacations. Big Poppa’s money stopped when the sex stopped. TFTP made a lot of money but I’m hearing estimates in the $100,000 range. Kim spends that on Dior and Louis Vuitton. She gets money and spends it just as quickly. The only modest investment is her townnhome. And she just blew $60,000 remodeling a childs room. Kim spends money like it grows on trees. She is a Danielle Staub in the making.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      Ah – I think you’re underestimating Kroy. Perhaps he knocked her up to have a shot at his own reality show? Kim and Troy get Married? They’ve been out trying to sell it. As disgusting as it sounds to us, this woman does have a solid fan base – otherwise how did TFTP sell? It wasn’t based on her voice! And she is one of the must keeps on Atlanta right now – and her fake make up with Sheree has rendered Sheree boring as heck.

      But she’s set. Her little one’s child support would continue even if she married Kroy wouln’t it? Child support is tied to the child – not like alimony. (And as a side note showing that she spent $60,000 on her daughter’s room is actually a smart move to prove that the child support is going toward the child and not her designer lifestyle).

    • TLM says:

      That child’s room redo was the biggest waste of money I’ve seen in a long time. First of all, what was so spectacular in that room that merited that amount of money? Second, since the room was being shown on tv, why wouldn’t she work out a deal where they showed the brand of furniture or store it came from? Finally, what does a child’s room need besides a new coat /color of paint and new sheets and pillows for a redo? Maybe a new dresser and nighttables from IKEA? If you were being more lavish, let’s say a new bed for $600, Furniture and linens for $6000, and a paint job for $600. That’s still $7400. Add new carpet for $1000. Still $8400. How in the hell does one spend $60,000?

      • lillybee says:

        The daughter wanted a sports themed room, if I remember correctly, but she would up with a baroque style room. The room looked like something Tree would like.

    • IMJ says:

      Shes smart as long as her little one stays little. Once she becomes an adult, that train stops. No more child support if theres no more child.

  84. cusi77 says:

    I would like to share some thinking I have been giving to Fakehedra and her giving birth… (I know, it looks that I do not have anything more interesting in my thinking process…)

    I can’t stop thinking in that poor boy… his birth is documented with his mother first impression to see him “Oh! Gross” and all the complaining, yada, yada… I can see in the future another “Norman Bates”, or the Menendez brothers,,,, I hope, for his own sake, Adonis -or whatever his name is- will put that episode of RHOA in the bottom of the sea!

    “SHaggy bath mat vests.”
    HadEnough , can’t stop laughing.
    Speaking of bath mats & reasonably priced sheets ;
    I want to remind u that Jill
    lives over a Bed Bath & Beyond!

    This means iLL can do a celebrity appearance every day.
    Fog horn can stand by her sheets and scream “Ur not my friend”
    To anyone who buys another brand of sheets !
    She can autograph the packaging of any one who buys her sheets.
    It is a brilliant BRANDing

    With BBB as her partner ,ill has endless branding opportunities !

    Do u think Miss B is nervous ?

  87. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @HouseWifeAddict, the spin-off could bring in $$ IF they get one. I’m just saying, people calling Kim a shrewd business woman is laughable. TFTP was a one hit wonder. Have you heard “Google Me”? She does not have a recording career ahead of her. Kroy? Will he have an NFL contract 5yrs from now? The only thing she has that is GUARANTEED is her child support. Everything else is fly by night stuff. She spends like it is going out of style. Everything she is getting today will be gone tomorrow. Do you see her still with Kroy, making hit records, selling wigs, and on TV 5yrs from now? I don’t. Kim is not a brand like Bethenny. Kim is a punchline. Smart women do smart things. Kim does easy things. Easy doesn’t buy you Dior when you are 45 and your boobs are sagging. Just ask Danielle Staub 😉

    • housewifeaddict says:

      Oh I wasn’t seriously suggesting they’ll get a spin-off LOL. But these people are so delusional they may think they will – or Bravo is so insane they may give them one! And I just think that Kroy might just be as insane as Kim, and not a victim of her gold digging, but an opportunist as well.

    Our Dear Cdnfillie58 
    Happy Happy Happy
    Birthday !!!

    TrueLifeDiva made you a green cake w/pineapples. It is made from her grandmothers recipe. AdGirl left your cake at the border with a very nice TSA agent. We were going to ring your bell and run but you are way out in the boonies.

    Wow Canada ,
    you share your Birthday with some pretty famous people !

    1967 Anna Nicole Smith (model, tv show)

    1950 Ed Harris (actor)

    1949 Alexander Godunov (ballet dancer bolshoi ballet)

    1943 Randy Newman (composer, singer)

    1936 Gary Hart (former US Senator from Colorado, presidential candidate)

    1933 Hope Lange (actress)

    1929 Berry Gordy Jr (founder: Motown Records)

    1866 Henry Bacon (architect – Lincoln Memorial)

    1757 William Blake (poet)

    Canada ,
    the word abundance holds a strong association for you as a November 28 ,Sagittarius, birth day lady. It identifies you with the descriptive values of fortune and fruitfulness.

    In this respect it is likely therefore, that not only will you always enjoy life in a comfortable manner from a material perspective, but also that you will gain enjoyment from being able to share what you might have with those close to you.

    The November 28 will project a socially outgoing nature. You are good-natured, optimistic, and have a personality that will aim for fun and enjoyment. As a November 28, you can find that your involvements in fun and games can well provide a resource from which new ideas and concept will arise. What can be important for you is to discover a balance of objectives for your fun-loving energy.

    On the relationship front, aspects associated with this day indicate that you are likely to experience numerous exciting relationships during your lifetime.

    As a November 28, you are endowed with an extremely sexual nature. You have great flirtation skills and will derive great satisfaction from your more intimate relationships. You are one who will enjoy the initial process of seduction as much as you will the relationship that follows on thereafter. 

    You are by nature endowed with a strong sense for justice and honour, and in this respect, quite given to stepping in to take up the defence of others who may be in distress. 

    This certainly applies in respect of your more personal relationships where you are likely to be strongly attracted to that member of the opposite sex who is in need of help. You are likely to be at your best in such situations, and extremely passionate and caring as you draw them in under your protection. Once the status quo has been established however, there is every potential that as a November 28 you will, after accepting their affections, move on in search of another target to save.

    For you, that high drama of romance is at the centre of your being.

    Over time, and as you progressively mature emotionally, you will discover that your helping, caring and protective qualities will become directed more toward groups or collections of people rather than toward just the single individual.

    November 28 is a cheerful, buoyant and fun loving birthday and one that holds interest in ever changing circumstances. By nature you hold a dislike for most forms of restriction including many forms of rules and regulations. You enjoy freedom and the term “Let’s take a gamble” could be an apt description for your outlook.

    Often, in your generalized conversation with others you can tend to project a communication in what might be describes as an insincere and tactless manner. Having said that however, on those occasions when you hold a firm belief in what you are saying, then your output can be highly impressive and meaningful to others.

    Born on this November 28 birth date, yours is a path of building life from the medium of your desires. The materials that you have are the experiences in which you find yourself in life, but the inspiration to achieve, will emanate upward from within the deepest levels of your being.

    The colours of sapphire blue, salmon pink, magenta, red, and royal blue resonate well with this November 28 birth date, and the minerals of “amazonite” and “fire opal” are gemstones that can help to inspire your personal development.

    On the home front, the November 28 will enjoy a spacey home environment that incorporates elements of luxury. You are likely to aim for lesser number of quality items within the home over that of a great volume of items, many of which might be consider superfluous to your real needs.

    Thanks for noticing Jazz.
    Its a fall I have had since the 70’s. I am too big for anything

    I have been furiously bedazzling a can opener for your little bundle of joy.

    I’m sorry, but the baby will just have to be exposed to the multiculturalism that is Lynn’s blog.

    I figure Apollo’s pretty cute and he ate white people food when he was a kid. Let’s not take any chances here shall we?

    Sending best wishes your way!

    • quincyil says:

      LOL… I think I’ll send bottles of baby food. I used it for my kids and they turned out ok.

    • HD says:

      I am cracking up!!! LMAO!!! No canned food here! I am determined to have a Black baby. LOL!! I guess I can’t eat canned food anymore now who knows what that would do to the baby. He may come out different colors! What will I do? Maybe I can start ordering some fwwwwaaaa grrrrrrraaaaawww (foie gras)as Phaedra pronounced it. LOL!

      • Had Enough! says:

        HD – may I belatedly wish you well on this wonderful news and to make up for being tardy to the party, I would like to send you a 50 gallon barrel of pickles. Not the icky ones Fakedra sucked on but the real thing from Guss’s Pickles on New York’s Lower East Side.

        Started by Izzy Guss in 1910, this 100-yr-old pickle stand was featured in a 1988 movie called Crossing Delancy featuring Amy Irving. Now, I know you are worried about the multi-culti thing so I have to warn you that if you eat these pickles while pregnant and have a daughter, she is going to have expensive taste and may sound a bit like Barbara Streisand in Funny Girl. If you have a son, well, save up now for the Bar Mitzvah. And you yourself will inexplicably be demanding that they call in doctors from the Mayo Clinic every time you have a hiccup.

        But these are the best pickles on the planet, and for our girl HD, nothing but the best will do!

        In short, bubbleh – MAZEL TOV!

        • JazzNightOut says:

          I loved Crossing Delancy and that pickle stand. You are very lucky to get these pickles, HD. You could watch the movie as well; it will make you smile.

        • justanothermary says:

          I live about 45 miles from the Mayo Clinic. Stop in if you’re taking the little bundle of hiccups in. I’ll let justanothervirgil give him/her a tiny scare. Problem solved and we can be on to snarking!

      • cdnfillie58 says:

        wow..congrats HD, bet you’ll be a great mom hugs!!

    10 Reasons Why You Should Get a Dog Instead of a Facelift


    • Had Enough! says:

      Yeah, but I don’t have to take my facelift for a walk and it doesn’t crap on the carpet. Oh, did I forget to mention…yup. Except mine was fantastic – very minimal, just made me look refreshed and younger. Nothing freaky. I look just like I did before, but younger. I couldn’t have been happier with the results, and only wish I had the $$ to have a bit of filler in the marionette lines. Maybe thermal lift in a couple of years to keep it looking good. Trust me, if your skin is sliding off your face and you look old and haggard and tired, it is really worth it. I did try juvederm first, but I was too far gone for it to make a difference.

  94. Adgirl says:

    I can’t begrudge Jill for getting her bedding line picked up by BBB. Anytime a woman creates her own income stream independent of a man – it’s all good to me.

    I’ve been wondering if Jill actually “owns” any part of Zarin Fabrics. It’s been in Bobby’s family for a while and she and Bobby do not have children together. I doubt Bobby’s ex wife owned any part of the business either.

    I say you go Jill! (but I still hate you!)

    • quincyil says:

      There were some lines of bedding at our BBB, I had never heard of any of them before. I suspect every thing is made in China and when they put them on the shelf they slap a name like Adams on them.

      Well, I have been proven wrong about no one dancing in my family. I told my husband about the dancing thread and sex. A little while ago, I heard load Middle Eastern music coming from the den. When I arrived at the door, he was dancing a traditional men’s dance from Eastern Iran. The guy does have moves. Thank goodness. rotfl

        • quincyil says:

          Kelly B and I are from IL.

          Everyone wonders about Kelly’s abdomen, but I have the same problems as Kelly. They are the scares of budding, a form of asexual reproduction where the offspring forms on some generative part of the parent. Kelly and I are Irish so it’s the abdomen. I am forbidden to tell you where the English bud, but Lynn might share. She’s from IL too.

          • Had Enough! says:

            Huh? She said that the bump is a protuberance of her xiphoid process, resulting from pregnancy. However, it does usually revert to the original position. Now if you mean the lumps on her stomach – I’m thinking lipo gone wrong. Same dude who screwed up her wonky boobs screwed up her lipo.

            • quincyil says:

              Those are not lipo scars, they are the remnants of budding. Mine have faded, but my children are around 30 now.

            • twoile says:

              I remember another show on the subject of Lipo & it seems that “ripples” is a result of Lipo performed to close to the skin surface.

      • JazzNightOut says:

        LOL! Dr.quincyil has your sense of humor. You must have fun together.

    • Had Enough! says:

      Well, but you don’t know when/how it was incorporated. The NY State records show Zarin Home Corp (Robert Zarin Chair or CEO) as having 2000 shares of stock and having first filed with the Dept of State in November 2005. It is possible that this is Zarin Fabrics (the given address is 314 Grand) or it could be another, newer corporation perhaps formed for an unrelated business such as t-shirts, books, buying Hamptons property, etc. I can’t find another corporation with the name Zarin, so it is also possible it is the fabric store or, as a NYer would say, the schmata shop.

      In any case, had it been formed as a stock corporation before poor Bobby met Shrill, he and/or the other shareholders could have given her some of the shares after the marriage. Otherwise, she wouldn’t be a shareholder and would not have an ownership interest. Except a potential interest as a widow who might inherit his shares, if he had any at the time of his death.

      I agree. Do what you can to support yourself so long as it is legal and moral.

      • quincyil says:

        A while ago, someone said that Jill and Bobby had a prenup. I don’t know if this is true. If he had a difficult divorce, it is likely that he tried to protect himself even if he was in love with Jill.

        Jill was married to Bobby for several years when we first met them in season one, but it looked like a strange relationship. He seemed to care about her more when she got in trouble in season three.

        I wonder what he thought after reading her family’s concept of love and marriage in that book. When Bethenny hates women going after men for their money, like her mom, I wonder if Jill comes to her mind too.

  95. TLM says:

    From Reality Tea:
    “While everything Bethenny touches seems to turn to gold, her decision to appear on ABC’s Skating With The Stars might turn out to be her biggest failure yet. The ratings for the show came out yesterday and it can only be described as disastrous. Despite having a lead-in from the most popular show on TV at the moment, Skating With The Stars only managed 11.3 million viewers. A drastic drop from the 23.3 million viewers that tuned in for Dancing With The Stars just moments before. It gets even worse as only 6.91 million viewers tuned in for the last hour of the show’s premiere. There are now rumblings that ABC is currently in panic mode.”

    • cdnfillie58 says:

      Makes it look like the ratings are down because of Bethenny…really!! Here’s a clue ABC, the stage looks fake, the judges are fake, the whole production couldn’t be anymore fake…I only watched it (and so the the other 11.3 or so million viewers) just to see Bethenny. .. yet I can see them blaming it on the most popular star. What a business 😛

    • Cheri says:

      Part of the drop was the power went out in the northwest during the end if dancing with the stars so went didn’t even have a chance to watch it

    @HD, saw your comment to OMiB and realized I’m still in possesion of your “black card” :-D. You have yet to submit two written references from other black folks that you are proficient in The Electric Slide and have disposed of all canned goods in your pantry.

      I think we have solved a medical mystery so we should call doctors in London and Nigeria asap.


      An African couple from Nigeria has a blonde haired, blue eyed baby. Everyone was in shock. Some suggested a genetic mutation, albino genes, or ancient genes from white ancestors. The “I hate Jill Zarin” board, after extensive research and discussion, have come to the conclusion that the couple ate canned food opened with a bedazzled can opener. Thus, the baby was white.

      Another episode of what the heck happened ….successfully explained by Lynn’s gang.

    So, just wondering. Did anyone ever hear from the authorities Shrillzilla allegedly contacted? No? Didn’t think so. Wonder how long it took them to stop laughing.

    • quincyil says:

      I wonder that every time I google “Jill Zarin” and see that link on the front page. What authories? The Hampton Police Dept. That was where she was on the day, she went balistic. There are a thousand blogs and a million comments from people who never bothered to find out the truth too.

      Susan Saunders has a birthday this week. I’m sure Bobby’s bank account will be taking a huge hit.

      • knocknoc says:

        Wonder if she will receive/request another bejeweled wrist watch or a more current SUV. Bless her, she loves the same
        items only more expensive ones.

      • Had Enough! says:

        So what kind of cake does Susan Saunders get? I am thinking we chip in and send her a cold potato latke cake. JUST KIDDING. BEFORE YOU CALL THE FBI, I AM JUST KIDDING.

        What should we have them write on this cake that we will of course never send? How about “We forgot our list, but don’t worry, Jill, we’ll always hate you” or “We didn’t forget our list, but there isn’t a cake big enough for all the reasons we hate you.”

        Or just, “You know what, Jill? We ARE through.”

          I think we should have a Susan Saunders Day on Nov. 30…. We should have a cake (potato Latkey) and french fries with coke.

          I bet it would send some people over the edge.

      Zarin… one “r”

      • housewifeaddict says:

        I just googled it – why do you think she named her 3 lines:

        Zoe (for Rachel?)
        Allyson (well that one makes sense) and
        … drum roll please
        Simona (Simon & Alex? No way it could be – but how funny)

        PS – why do drapery panels often only come in one length. It’s a pet peeve, as our house has untraditionally sized windows, and they are hard to fit!

    Has anyone noticed that Camille affirms herself with everything she says? She requires no outside opinion on anything. She says “mm-hmm” at the end of declarative sentences and when she thinks she has scored some points, she slowly blinks her eyes as if to say, “Queen Camille has spoken.” It’s the kind of affectation that makes you want to smack the smug look off her face. Not that you could tell the difference, since her face is so frozen. LOL.

    • quincyil says:

      I did notice that. I write… “hmmmmm, sometimes to show that my brain is cranking out another thought, but I don’t say “hmmmm” in real life. I don’t have to say, “hmmmmm,” because there is a giant light bulb that flashes over my head.

    • MichellefromNY says:

      I noticed it too. She did it when she was talking about her home in hawaii. She was like “I have dozens of homes. mhm hmmm” it just made the statement a thousand times more obnoxious

    • Kansas Girl says:

      I noticed that when she told her boyfriend Kelsey said they’d need to get another realtor, she looked down and said very quietly “He really did say that”. I found that very curious. Who needs to confirm their own words to themselves?! That made me immediately suspect she was lying.

      • TLM says:

        The slow blinking pissed me off the most.
        “Sorry, Kyle, you lose.” [slow blink and smirk]
        “I don’t know if I can live in that confined a space.” [slow blink]
        “Don’t throw jabs at me, because I will defend myself.” [slow blink and smirk]

    @OneMoreinBoston, I was online christmas shopping last night and treated myself to that Natura Bisse product you recommended a while back. I found it for $133.00 and added a nice moisturizer to go with it. The website had an online coupon for 20% off and free shipping, so the total came to $130.00. Almost a buy one get one free! I’m so excited 😀

    More Real Housewives Real Estate
    Sheree Whitfield’s rented home is on the market, where will she land next? If you recall, she was forced to sell the home featured in Season 1 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Sheree seems to be running through that $775,000 lump sum she got in her divorce from former NFL player Bob Whitfield like there is no tomorrow, having lost her Aston Martin to the repo man, because Sheree doesn’t believe she should pay attorneys, private detectives, etc., Hope she wasn’t counting on Tiy-E Muhammad to bail her out, after all, they work the same side of the street.

    In other real estate news, Kyle Richards of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and uber hot hubby .Mauricio Umansky are selling their home, pictured below. Mauricio, interestingly, works for Hilton and Hyland, so he works for Rick Hilton, Paris Hilton’s father.
    pic’s & complete story–


    • quincyil says:

      What is is with all of the homes that go on sale after season one? They must all be in financial trouble. Wow…

      They are in the homes for years and suddenly decide to sell?

      • klmh says:

        The market is so bad there and I would imagine they put on a front a few years ago and bought these homes, before the housing market crashed. So many people feel the need to buy the biggest and the best to show their success, don’t you think?
        I bet the mortgage payments are astounding!
        I don’t know who is in financial trouble but I do think Kyle and her husband could be in this group because of real estate, but I think Lisa just wants to downsize. imo

        • Adgirl says:

          Maybe they are all selling for privavcy reasons? I’m pretty sure they all live in gated communities and some like Adrienne and Lisa are probably in doubled gated and then have gates leading into their drive ways!
          I think Lisa is selling her home because of financial reasons. Villa Blanca looks so old school I wonder how well it’s doing.

          • HD says:

            Lisa is selling her home too? What happened?!

          • klmh says:

            Perhaps, but the article I read mentioned Lisa wouldn’t sell for anything other than the asking price and the home was just too big.
            Kyle and her family though would be the target of an economic downturn, imo.

    I’m embarrassed to say that I’ve watched the New York “Dinner With 2 Loonies” episode of RHOBH, and I noticed a whole bunch of stuff Kim was saying that I didn’t initially pick up on. Kim actually started attacking Kyle, telling her she should “know her place”? WTF?

    I was wondering if Kim reminded anyone else of the weirdo Kristin Wiig plays on SNL who’s on a Lawrence Welk episode. She’s just as bizarre and jittery. http://www.hulu.com/watch/37752/saturday-night-live-the-lawrence-welk-show

    That’s two for Kristin Wiig: the Shanna character she plays is a total Camille.

    To HD & MichellefromNY—When my brother and I were born (twins) my mother made a Christmas tree skirt that year. Every year she put a set of our hand prints on it with fabric paint and wrote our names (small) under each new print with the year. She did it until we were 10. I took out some Christmas stuff and it made me smile. I’m glad she did it. I’m going to do the same with my kids (when I have them).

      That’s cool and a great idea. I read about a family that had a holiday tablecloth. After the meal, they voted on who made the worst mess. That person got to sign their name and year. Grandma embroidered the mess and the name in appropriate colors. It had been going on for years and was a record of much family fun.

      That’s so adorable! We’re jewish so we don’t do christmas, but I love documenting important events and then saving them and finding them later. I’m hoping my baby will be born on chanukah so that I don’t have to wait a whole year to celebrate the holidays with my baby!

      • justanothermary says:

        My mother inherited the old family home when I was very young (a beautiful old colonial). About 10 years ago the house was just too big and no one in the family lives near there anymore so she sold the house. She did, however, take with her the molding that was around the kitchen door where our height and age were marked, along with those of herself and her siblings. (She had the piece replaced so no one would know.) When I was home last summer she gave it to me. I had it put up my kitchen door – right next to the one with my grandkids on it. I just makes me warm inside to see that everyday.

      • quincyil says:

        We celebrated chanukah with Jewish friends from Iran twice and they purchased gifts for our children plus Christmas presents for our kids and theirs. That was a lot of gifts. Have fun with the baby. You can celebrate even if your baby likes being inside a little longer. Your baby is already with you.

    Did you ever let that poor dog in?

    I was thinking of you yesterday, when I was ironing. I know it is freaky beyond belief, but I actually relax when I am doing all the laundry, getting it folded and put away, getting the ironing done…it is just so easy compared to work and all the other stuff in my life and gives me the illusion of control.

    RCH new Jingle bells lyrics:Housewives Holiday Jingle:

    The Real Housewives on Bravo TV
    These women are so cra-zay
    I’m writing blogs about them all
    Laughing all the way

    Ha Ha Ha!

    Gum berries and satchels of gold
    Al Sharpton and love and light
    What fun it is to laugh and sing
    This Housewife song tonight


    Jingle bells
    Kelly smells
    Just like kitty pee

    Teresa’s broke
    It’s not a joke
    She’ll be denied her bankruptcy


    Jingle bells
    Camille smells
    Like insecurity

    Jill’s a joke
    There is no hope
    At least she has Bobbeeey

    Dina Manzo is a head case
    Michaele’s life is a big lie
    Taylor’s lips are takin over her face
    Kim’s song makes babies cry

    The demonic faces of Phaedra Parks
    They give me such a fright
    What fun it is to laugh and snark
    On Housewives every night


    Jingle bells
    Camille smells
    Like insecurity

    Jill’s a joke
    There is no hope
    At least she has Bobbeeey


    Jingle bells
    Kelly smells
    Just like kitty pee

    Teresa’s broke
    It’s not a joke
    She’ll be denied her bankruptcy

    Teresa’s broke
    It’s not a joke
    She’ll be denied her bankruptseeeeey

    Mauricio’s website. Absurdtosublime.net says this property belongs to Kelsey. So I guess only Camille’s transactions will be pulled from him.

    • vilzvet says:

      Soooo, Camille, Mauricio is still your real-a-tor it seems! Good for him! That is the house we saw them living in, correct? The house where Camille was shown traipsing down to the barn house for a meeting with her decorator. Can’t wait if and when this comes up at the reunion and what Kyle will have to say.

      • Kansas Girl says:

        This isn’t the house on the show. The one on the show is in the hills above Malibu, but I can’t figure out where.

    Could this be Kim Zolciak’s ex: http://www.toceperformance.com/13.html

    The old man Toce (70 yrs old plus) is supposedly loaded but the son (Kim’s ex) is not. Maybe the old man paid her to go away?

    • Adgirl says:

      There’s old man loaded and then there is son loaded. Both are probably ultra rich in my universe.
      I wonder why they divorced?

        I’m still mystified as to how he’s paying KZ those amounts of money from a sportbike company that was only founded in 2002? It just doesn’t sound like a company that would generate enough to pay her $460K a year.

    Thank you Lynn for having this place that congregates such a great people!

    @Quincy and @OnemoreinBoston_

    Can you give me more information about “Obagi Treatment”? Which one to buy? There are several in Internet that is confusing… which one is the real one?

    • quincyil says:

      I go to a med spa which is owned by a family practice physician with an interest in skin care. On our radio, I have heard dermatolgists and a plastic surgeon advertising that they carry it. It must be a prescription.

      I had pulse light treatments on age spots last year. They are gone now so that works too.

      I know you are two years young than I am. When we were young, we didn’t have sunscreens. I had to work outside helping my family. I also was a competitive swimmer in high school and college. That’s a lot of sun damage early in my life.

      • cusi77 says:

        Quincy_ I am allergic to sun since I remember ( I am 1/4 Irish) so I did have to hide from the sun with big hats and my body fully covered. To swim it was in interior swimming pools or going to the beach after dark… But I do have a couple of age spots in my temples.

        “Sisley” has a product for that but is ridiculously expensive!

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      Hi honey- My internet went out last night, so I’m just catching up now. I was
      having withdrawals!

      please , please, please DO NOT buy Obagi online. It is prescription strength and it is no joke. @quincy is on a regime where the dr. gradually builds uo her skin’s tolerance to the chemicals.

      It works to act as an anti ager because it very slightly damaging the surface of the skin. OK- I’m repeating myself again- DAMAGES the skin.

      Because the skin “thinks” there is an injury it rushes to it’s own defense by forming extra collagen and elastin to protect itself, therefore filling in any lines and tightening the skin.

      Don’t even try this without a doctor. I have a patient that had beautiful skin, but she is slightly OCD. She used an Obagi peel she got on eBay, and ended up in the emergency room with chemical burns. The worst? She hyper and hypo pigmented where the burns were the worse.

      Hyper pigmentation is extra pigment that ***usually*** can be removed by lighteners and lasers. Hypo pigmentation is a complete loss of pigment and there is absolutely NOTHING that can be done to fix it. Not even using a self tanner. The pigment is just completely destroyed.


      • cusi77 says:

        Oh My…. Thanks very much OneMore! I will be visiting a Dermatologist, Thank you again!

        btw_ The beautiful denim dress from Ebay has not arrived yet… I went to see in the order number and it said it was mailed November 26th… I hope it will be here this week (I order Nov.10th…)

  116. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @TLM found it!

    This is an example of the New Jersey style nonsense sweeping the country. My friend I was describing gets her nails done like this with either pink and white or gold glitter reverse french. I’m supposed to cut my nails off to get a full set of tips that look like this crap? I’ve never worn tips and I won’t start with anything ugly like this! That’s like shaving your head to get a Kim Zolciak wig. I guess I’ll just be out of style 🙂

    RHOA – Best line of the night uttered by Sheree: “Love doctor, my ass.”

    • TLM says:

      That guy was a slimeball. He had an answer for everything, and is a BS artist. Really? Who walks around carrying their transcript? That was no transcript. Sheree called his bluff, and the most he could say to her is, “Prove you’re a woman”?? The whole air kiss goodbye and “peace & love” with the broad grin on his face said to me that this guy is a scammer. I have no doubt he’s done this with tons of women, and he probably targets divorcees with money so he can get them to pay for him. The guy is so full of shit. He gives a whole speech on how a woman should “let a man be a man” and let him open a ketchup bottle, but yet he didn’t see why he “should have to feed” her and pay for her meal? The first date should have clued her in. He invited her to a restaurant leading her to believe it was for dinner, and then said, “I only come here for the music.” He just didn’t want to pay for any food. I think that’s why he invited her to his house for “dinner”, and then tells her to eat peanut butter off his finger. Buh-bye.

      • Amber...Real Wife says:

        This fake ass doc is the worst kind of charlatan there is. He masquerades as a relationship therapist, giving women the kind of advice that benefits losers like him.

        Hell no, women aren’t worried about feeding a man’s ego, getting the ketchup bottles open in diners, as much as they are needing help emotionally, financially, technically and manually.

        Support a woman when she has an emotional problem, assist her financially if she needs help and it can be done, if you can fix her tv, cable, computer, car etc. that’s golden and lastly mow her lawn, take out the trash, kill the spiders and pick up the dead mouse.

        That is what real men do. They fix things. They want to fix things for you. (While courting of course 😉 ) And women will show their appreciation (Til we land them of course 🙂 ) Then there’s marriage and after a while… ALL BETS ARE OFF!! LOL

        • Adgirl says:

          Seriously, Sheree is perfectly correct.
          When you are divorced and have children you do not trot home every Tom, Dick and Sally that you are hot for!
          That guy was a bushell of BS. Good for her!

          I waited and entire year before introducing the guy to my kids and that man didn’t work out. The next guy that I did eventually marry had to wait forever before he met my kids.
          Dr Laura says don’t date until the kid is 18!

          • HD says:

            I could not believe that “Dr.” last night. “Prove you’re a woman.” Is that the best you got. If you REALLY had your transcripts/degree, which I know I always carry around in my pocket, why not show them? He was busted and then tried, poorly, to get out of his lie! He is the poster child for a S.A.M. Sorry A$$ Man!

        • TLM says:

          I think the key is that good men do things that show women they care, whether it is cleaning the snow off their car, watching kids, or otherwise lightening their load. Young men could learn a lot from Fililppo on Jerseylicious. He asked a a coworker out repeatedly and was turned down, until he offered to clean up the salon for her so she could go home. That touched her and she said, “You know what, I will go out with you.” Watch and learn, guys.
