I Hate Jill Zarin The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Dec 3, 2010
The more we get to know the Beverly Hills Housewives, the more we realize, they’re not a whole lot different from us. Right?
Don’t we all go shopping for gowns to wear to the Tony Awards? And haven’t we all gone for an electric facial at one point in our lives? Don’t we all discuss our personal problems with our personal stylists? Haven’t we all attended dinner parties at lavish estates with 17 bathrooms?
Well maybe we haven’t done those things but I’ll bet some of you have dealt with a child being allergic to a new pet. I’m not a fan of Taylor’s, but I did feel heart sick for her daughter Kennedy, who is suffering because of her most favorite birthday gift. It seems little Snowball, the cute puppy that she got for her birthday, is causing congestion and rashes. Daddy Russell is less than sympathetic simply saying, “I don’t want to get rid of the dog”. Taylor definitely saw this as an opportunity to rid her life of the pooping and peeing machine but it was obvious too that she felt bad having to break her daughter’s heart. Russell proved once again that he’s the boss, it seems as though they’ve chosen to medicate Kennedy and keep little Snowball.
Last night’s episode was even better because it was almost Camille-free. We watched as she tried on a few gorgeous gowns for the Tony Awards as she disgustingly gushed over her husband’s many awards and listing all of the red carpet’s she’s walked down. She also let slip that Kelsey Grammer may have been faking some of those smile’s for his peers on the nights that he walked away without an Emmy.
Nominated over a dozen times and winning five, apparently he got upset when he lost a few times and had to fake his congratulations to the winners. Camille just had to be sure to tell the viewers that her husband is a sore loser, ain’t she nice Kelsey? Ain’t she? I can’t imagine why he divorced her ass.
The only other mention of Camille for the evening was at the massive estate of Lisa’s friend who graciously hosted a dinner party for the remaining housewives, seemingly only to set up Kim Richards with a close friend of Lisa’s. Kyle joined the rest of us in her glee that Camille wasn’t at the lavish party. It was a strange party, but we’ll get to the bash in a minute.
It was nice to see more of Adrienne, she and her husband Paul have one of those marriages that we’ve all seen before. The husband clearly loves his wife a whole lot more than she loves her husband. But it seems to work for them. Adrienne is tentative as Paul plans their 8th wedding anniversary celebration as she explains that one past year Paul gave her a purse shaped like a Champaign bottle. They were very cute but it seems as though Paul was trying very hard to create a romantic atmosphere and Adrienne is just not that kinda gal. “It seems like 75 years” was her response when Paul toasted to their 8 years together.
The couple is served a huge cheese fondue that looks like it would feed a small nation, Adrienne refuses to eat any of it and best I can tell Paul took only one bite. Luckily they now have a beautiful huge German Shepard dog to eat the leftovers. Paul’s gift this year was not a gaudy purse but an amazing dog shipped over from Germany.
Now I don’t know if any of you are dog lovers or are familiar with the growing epidemic of overflowing dog shelters but Paul apparently doesn’t. I can even understand if you want a pure bred German Shepard rather than a mutt from the pound but there are dozens of breeders in the United States who breed German Shepard’s. I mean why would you have a dog flown over from Europe who doesn’t even speak English? This couple doesn’t speak German, how on earth will they communicate with the German dog? ( I kid, I kid)
What I love about Adrienne and Paul is that we’re finally getting a housewife who didn’t marry her husband for money, she isn’t stuck in a marriage because she needs the financial security, and they’re not pretending to be something that they’re not. Adrienne is the epitome of “keeping it real”. I detest that phrase because it is so over used and has lost its meaning but it fits here.
The focus of the episode was this dinner party that seemed to celebrate nothing but was simply held to introduce Kim to Lisa’s friend Martin. All of the housewives arrive with their husband’s except Camille who is polishing Kelsey’s Emmy’s and couldn’t make it. Kim is nervous as she prepares for her blind date and Kyle is nervous that Kim may not show up. Unpredictable and bat shit crazy, you never know what Kim will do. Kim is unlike the other crazy housewives as she’s a good crazy, she’s not vicious and cruel like Kelly Bensimon of New York, Teresa Giudice of New Jersey, Kim Zolciak of Atlanta or Michaele Salahi of DC. Kim is Beverly Hill’s nutty character but she’s got a good heart, she doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. We’ll leave that to Camille Grammer.
Lisa refuses to give Kim her dates name in advance so that she wasn’t able to Google him and get any advanced information about this guy. Lisa is just a nice person, she’s unique to the Housewives franchise as there is no apparent underlying negativity toward anyone, and she’s clearly not doing the show for the fame and fortune. She is a great mother and seems to have a wonderful marriage, her only crutch may be Cedric the houseguest from hell.
Apparently Cedric found himself very comfortable at the home of his mistress’ friend Mohamed and helped himself to the fancy Jacuzzi, when the party guests caught him he jumped up revealing his less than impressive package that Lisa described as “Dynamite with a 2 inch fuse”. Lisa has got it all and she’s hysterically funny as well. She doesn’t try too hard (ala Kim Zolciak) but lets the one liners fly leaving viewers laughing out loud.
Kim arrives to the party late and finally meets her prince charming, Martin as all the other housewives stare, point and giggle like school girls making the couple feel a bit uncomfortable. They seem to hit it off until dinner is served and Kim disappears for a time. It’s not clear how long Kim was gone but it was apparently long enough to concern the other party goers. Kim returns to the dinner table on the arm of another guy, after having snuck up to one of the 20 bedrooms to have sex, sorry I made that part up. Kim explains that there are other nice looking gentlemen at the party but she does have an attraction to her date, Martin.
The couple leaves the party hand in hand as Kyle lets us know he’ll be driving her home. Hopefully Kim has found the man of her dreams and Kyle can go back to taking care of her own beautiful family and not worry so much about her big sister. Watch what happens…
Adrienne Maloof and Lance Bass joined Andy Cohen for this episode of Watch What Happens Live, unfortunately while I adore Adrienne, she did not make for a very exciting guest and Lance Bass didn’t add anything to the program.
Adrienne avoided the plastic surgery question that seems to get lobbed at every Housewife in that chair but she did share with us that she is a PTA Mom, she did have her wedding gown encased in glass and hung on the wall but just giggled when Andy complimented her husband’s watch collection and its’ unique storage display. The spinning watches featured as the couple prepared to leave for a funeral in an earlier episode, keep the watches fresh and ready to wear as many watches require movement to keep the battery and mechanisms working properly.
Adrienne was asked if she thought Camille flaunts her wealth but avoided that question as well. I would much rather have heard her answer a simple question like, “What is your impression of Camille?” or something similar.
The poll question tonight asked if fans thought that Adrienne was too mean to her husband, a close vote but Adrienne is apparently just the right amount of mean to her husband as 53% voted “no”. Paul voted as well at the end of the show he shared that he did not feel his wife was mean to him.
Andy Cohen was in rare form calling Paul by his wife’s last name Maloof when actually Paul’s last name is Nassif, open mouth and insert foot Mr. Cohen. Just in case anyone forgot, Andy also reminded us no less than 10 times that he is Jewish but his two guests were not Jewish. And this matters because….???
Overall a rather dull Watch What Happens Live, on Sunday night Sheree will be joining Andy Cohen on the show.

Rumor has it that NeNe’s oldest son Brice is going to be a daddy, Grandma NeNe has a nice ring to it. Unfortunately she’ll be single as it appears as though she’s going through with the divorce from her husband Gregg.
NeNe is hosting a Las Vegas bash on Sunday night, she posted these tweet about her gig:

Kandi is on tour with Fantasia and tweeted this earlier in the week:
@Kandi: Earlier 2day I was n tears about some things that weren’t going my way…. But Dallas showed me so much love that I’m smiling again! Thank u
Kandi is great but her constant promotion of her upcoming CD drop is getting a bit old. Some of the criticism must have reached her because she’s been tweeting more without mentioning her CD lately.
Kelly Bensimon is always good for a chuckle or two:
@kikilet @uggsboots211 my kids and I are obsessed with cozy uggs. Slippers for any outdoor whether. Sooo cozy
I don’t know how this woman graduated from Columbia without being able to spell “weather”. I wonder if she got a pair of free Uggs for her tweet. And our friend Real City Housewife (PutYourHairUp) helped out Kelly this week:
@kikilet Invited to a hanukkah party, what do i bring??
@PutYourHairUp Cold latkes. Duh. Didn’t Jill tell you that?
Speaking of Jill, she celebrated her birthday this week, she had this to say to fans:
