I Hate Jill Zarin The Real Housewives of Atlanta

I Hate Jill Zarin Real Housewives of Atlanta Dec 13, 2010

Bravo’s Christmas present to us all, The Real Housewives of Atlanta aired last night and it really is the most comical Housewives Franchise.

Where else can you see a bad wig wearing, chain smoking , boob hanging out hooker-like chick laying there getting $3,000 laser treatments to remove the fat while shoving pizza and mozzarella sticks in her face? Kim Zolciak is a cartoon character, she’s a tool, and no one is that stupid, that selfish and that lazy, are they?

I’m still trying to figure out why Kandi is helping this woman and why NeNe keeps coming back for more Zolciak abuse. Kandi is planning a tour and is taking Kim along as her opening act. Why? No one seems to know but in an attempt to prepare Kim, she was put in a room with yet another poor soul wasting his time trying to help her. This time it was dancing, a routine that Kim was to learn to go along with her Tardy For The Party performance, and Kim refused to take it seriously.

Kim’s main concern was that she would always be able to see herself in the mirror, primping and adjusting her hair, clothing and posing was more important than actually learning the routine. Kim tells viewers that she is “Probably even better at dancing than she is at singing”.

She’s best at being a lazy goof-off actually because she takes nothing seriously. She is so lazy that she insisted that her instructor perform the routine while she watched and she wasn’t even courteous enough to watch. More of that great example she sets for her children. Take shortcuts, don’t take anything seriously, don’t appreciate anything that is done for you and don’t go to the gym. Rather be lazy, let your friends down, be selfish and do whatever you want, following no rules whatsoever.

Kandi’s attempt to make her tour a professional show failed spectacularly when she chose Kim as her opening act. Kim, the one hit wonder, was provided with tools that she needed to learn a routine and improve her voice but informed us that she would dance to her own beat while singing her own tune. Unfortunately she can’t dance or sing so all the help in the world that Kandi sends Kim’s way is futile.

Kandi arrives at Sheree’s house to help Sheree with her new acting gig. They’re going to run lines together to help Sheree learn both of her (two) lines perfectly. I really love how Bravo ensures that there is always comedy in the show. Sheree isn’t going to be paid for this theatre production but she is in the self-proclaimed pivotal role of the friend of the lead character. The strangest name for a play, “Child Support Man” revolves around a woman who is obviously still in love with her ex-husband who does pay child support but tells everyone he does not pay.

Sheree and Kandi give us a bit of inside information both admitting that they do not receive child support from their respective ex’s. Sheree is rather evasive when Kandi asks her how she makes ends meet because we all know that Sheree is too pretty to work. Her response is that she has some savings and “stuff”. Could Sheree be that woman in the play, is she receiving child support but telling the world that she’s not?

Kandi and Kim cannot attend Sheree’s play, Kim will be out of town in Los Angeles getting her real hair colored. Don’t ask! And Kandi is just too busy preparing for the upcoming tour but Cynthia, NeNe and even Phaedra agree to attend Sheree’s play.

While Kim is completely confusing the hell out of her fat cells by having them melted with a laser at the same time as she’s feeding them pizza, Cynthia asks NeNe if they can talk privately.

NeNe is reluctant and I think that our little NeNe is growing up, she really doesn’t want the drama, not on screen and not off screen. She actually says no twice to this private meeting but finally gives in as the two go into Kim’s kitchen to talk privately. Cynthia explains why there has been no communication over the past few weeks and it makes sense to no one, but NeNe accepts it and is ready to re-join the fat burning party, further proving that she’s not into the drama.
Unfortunately Cynthia is not finished.

Cynthia presents NeNe with a peace offering, a sweet smelling candle because she knows that NeNe loves candles. Great! NeNe again tries to leave the kitchen having made peace with Cynthia but nothing doing, Cynthia pulls out a contract from her handbag because apparently NeNe also likes legal documents?

This “Friend Contract” was actually pretty funny and had Cynthia presented it as a joke it may not have been such a creepy scene, sort of like Kelly and her fish bowl comment cards in St. John, it was all just a bit too strange. Cynthia explained the three page document that included not going to sleep mad at one another, attending life changing events, and ending the friendship only with a notarized letter signed by the President of the United States. It really could have been funny if Cynthia had presented it as a joke but she seemed pretty serious about it and even went through with the signing of the document, having it notarized, copied and filed with the Clerk of the Circuit Court. (Ok I made up the last part)

Meanwhile back at Phaedra’s fruitcake central, grocery store inventory was being delivered and again Apollo is missing in action, (maybe he DOES have a job?) but Phaedra’s mom is there apparently to help with the baby but only seems to be eating the couple out of house and home. There was certainly enough food to feed an army in that house apparently sent by Dwight who must have known Phaedra’s mom was visiting. Lots of mmmm’s and ahhh’s ensue as the food is consumed.

Dwight visits the new mommy and baby but the baby is quickly whisked away after nursing by Phaedra’s mom so that the two hens can gossip.
Dwight is quite the storyteller, he tells Phaedra that he attended Kandi’s birthday party and has so much news, unfortunately it was not so much news as a fairytale. Dwight failed to mention that as he was talking with Cynthia and Kim, the subject of Phaedra’s baby’s due date came up. Bravo is kind enough to show us the flashback of the conversation while Dwight completely twists the words and embellishes what was said.

Dwight tells Phaedra that Cynthia and Kim, the nurse, were talking about Phaedra having an “alien baby” but he failed to mention that they were referring to the gestational period of a human being, in fact the always brilliant Kim Zolciak said, “It takes 10 months for a baby to cook”. Dwight’s imagination came up with the added fingers and toes nonsense seemingly to fuel the fire between Phaedra and Cynthia.

Dwight not only got the verbiage wrong, he got the wrong Housewife. I’m not sure how he had trouble distinguishing between Cynthia and Kim as only one has a brain and only one is stunningly beautiful and only one didn’t completely insult Phaedra. Kim was the hate spewing Housewife and Cynthia said very little yet got the wrath of Dwight’s story putting Kim’s words in Cynthia’s mouth.

Phaedra and Dwight have a lot of fun with their fairytale story, calling Kim a stripper, uneducated, jealous and even suggested that Kim may have gotten a nursing degree online for $59.00. Actually, they may have been pretty close to the truth. Phaedra explains that she went to school and got a law degree so that she wouldn’t have to listen to or deal with people like Kim Zolciak. I’m not saying that it isn’t a great reason to get a law degree, hell I might even go to Law School if I’d never have to see Kim again, but doesn’t Phaedra defend drug dealers and “one hit wonders” in her law practice?

Phaedra seems to be pretty proud of herself for being a married woman, she slams both Cynthia and Kim for not being married and at least three times mentions that they must be jealous of her for having a husband. Apparently Phaedra hadn’t yet heard the news of Cynthia’s engagement but in any case, why is having a husband such an accomplishment? Even more important, why is she basing her worth on being married? More important than that, why is she hanging out with Dwight?

The night of Sheree’s play arrives and as the ladies arrive and take their seats, Sheree is getting her hair done by the always fantastic Lawrence. After having convinced Sheree that he can, in fact, carry a tune earlier in the episode, tonight is all about Sheree. We learn that neither Sheree’s new agent nor her acting coach will be available to watch the play but with her two line performance she’s ready for films now.

NeNe is annoyed that she didn’t just sit in her car and pop into the theatre during the last 2 minutes when Sheree finally made her stage debut, but refreshed after her nap NeNe congratulated Sheree on her crackerjack delivery of those two lines, clearly NeNe agreed, she’s ready for film.

Phaedra received congratulations all around for giving birth to her baby boy and Cynthia gets the snark of the night award for confronting Phaedra with having had a “Full-Term” baby. Since Kandi was there and witnessed Phaedra’s very own doctor confirming that the baby was full term and Kandi obviously shared it with the other ladies, Phaedra was busted! Not knowing what to say to that, Phaedra decided to turn the tables and confront Cynthia about calling her baby an alien while telling the viewers that she doesn’t understand the fascination with her baby’s due date.

Cynthia corrected Phaedra and suggested that Phaedra check her sources because Cynthia never said anything about an “alien baby” and of course Dwight made up the rest so checking the “source” isn’t going to change much but maybe Dwight will recall that it was Kim’s nasty mouth that came up with the “alien baby” nonsense. Maybe if Phaedra had just been honest about her due date, people wouldn’t be so fixated on it. That husband that she’s so proud of married her while she was already pregnant, no one really cares much except Phaedra.

Peter was the bigger man and apologized to NeNe for the way he spoke with her on the phone and the way that he’d treated her, he explained that he was a bit annoyed at the frequency of phone calls between his fiancé and NeNe. He was a bit stressed over business and his upcoming wedding but he recognized that NeNe is going through some issues as well and needs someone to talk to. Now that NeNe has signed a friendship contract, Peter has no choice but to accept his lady’s friend, it’s the law.

Finally, NeNe lost a few points by sharing the friendship contract with Kim Zolciak, while the scene was actually pretty funny, the jokes were at Cynthia’s expense and it just seemed rather mean. NeNe could have kept the contract confidential, it certainly appears as though Cynthia is a whole lot better friend to NeNe than Kim Zolciak so why share it with Kim when everyone knows that Kim will simply ridicule it. In the end Cynthia tweeted last night that the contract was meant to be a joke and even made a jab at herself by saying she had plenty more copies of the contract if anyone is interested in being her friend.

If given a choice between any of the Atlanta ladies, I think most of us would choose Cynthia to be friends with over any of the others, I know I would!

NeNe Leakes has such a great sense of humor, check out this clip:

    Moved over from previous blog.
    I just finished reading Adrienne’s blog. I am not sure if anyone noticed that Adrienne has had tinsel strands in her hair the past episodes. I don’t know about the east coast or mid-west but they are big out on the west coast. Many day spa’s and salons offer them. You pay by the strand and they are weaved into your regular hair. They are really a fun and cute accessory for holiday parties.

    Brought from previous blog:

    Quincy,

    Someone mentioned up thread, I think it was AZ Girl, that anytime Dina’s name was mentioned, someone negative would appear and disrupt the flow of the blog/poster discussion. She not only questioned some subjects on your blog, she also attacked some posters comments here. I think this is your answer and therefore not something to concern yourself with, don’t you think? Seriously? may not be Dina, but she either works for, or is a friend of hers. jmho

    • quincyil says:

      Thank you. I have noticed some of this, but I didn’t put it all together. I was oblivious to some of the information on other sites and twitter too. Apparently, I was in Lynn’s fabulous walk in closet and blinded by the shoe collection. If only Lynn’s feet were a few sizes larger and I could “borrow” some of the Manolo Blahnik 4 inch heels.

    I really used to love Dwight. Now this season he has just turned into a major trouble maker. I guess since he fell out with Nene he has resorted to trying to find a new bestfriend. The way he lied about Cynthia and that entire conversation blew my mind.

    When Phaedra confronted Cynthia she completely ignored that her baby was full term and made it about her uterus. Really? Your uterus? Somebody help me. No one cares about that, we care that you lied and we really don’t care about that. We just want to bust you for being a liar. I am really hoping this comes out at the reunion. She thinks she is so important. No honey, you are just a liar.

    • quincyil says:

      I think our famous entertainment attorney might be trying to confuse the jury.

    • Sha2000 says:

      Dwight looked like he was in the Easter parade with that hat last night. It was well done but even too theatrical for him.

  5. MickeyMouth says:

    Good blog Lynn. Just read that Brandon has dropped out of SWTS due to illness. Not at home so bbl to comment more 🙂

  6. Had Enough! says:

    I am bringing this over from the old blog because I hope that Kendra Wallis and others will read it and give it some thought. For those who don’t know, Kendra Wallis has a twitter campaign called @end2bullying. I don’t know who she is; from googling, it looks like she might be a high school principle in LA and/or an LGBT activist. In either case, I applaud her for speaking up and would say that she probably has quite a bit of personal experience that I wish she hadn’t had to endure.

    However, she is really crossing the line by harassing Bravolebrities and saying that they should not be interviewed by Lynn, because Lynn is a hate blogger. She’s obviously never read past the name of the blog which actually, as was pointed out yesterday, is Lynnnchicago101.

    Anyway, here’s what I wrote:

    These anti-bullying campaigns are doing themselves a real disservice by equating the expression of negative opinions (about anything, to friends) with the deliberate harassment of individuals. Before the internet, a group of friends had the kinds of conversations we have here, but in their kitchens over a cuppa Joe, or in a restaurant, over a couple of drinks. Does the fact that the Bravolebrities can, if they chose to, eavesdrop on our conversation make it bullying? I don’t think so. The other big difference is that these women, for reasons I can’t begin to fathom, are willingly exposing themselves to ridicule.

    There is a world of difference between people having a conversation about their opinions of adults who deliberately expose themselves (for paychecks and product endorsements)…and the vicious, personal, deliberate harassment of individuals, especially minors.

    Kendra Wallis – are you listening? What you are trying to do is admirable, but you are really missing the mark by comparing these discussions to what happened to Phoebe Prince, Tyler Clementi, and Megan Meier. You cheapen their memories by equating what happened to them with discussions about adults who had to know what they were getting into when they went on reality TV shows. Trust me, Jill Zarin is laughing all the way to the bank, and if a few people write negative things about her, well so what? Without Bravo, she wouldn’t have a bedding line and a gotkes (Yiddish for underwear) line and all this free advertising. She is a sharp cookie. She knew what she was in for and she willingly accepted that bargain.

    By the standards of Kendra Wallis, columnists would have to stop writing about politicians. Because they are writing mean things! about adults! who chose to make themselves public figures! knowing what they were getting into! No one will be able to write biographies that say anything negative about the subject.

    That is not bullying. Period.

    Kendra – you really need to make these important distinctions, because you have an important message but it is not going to succeed as long as you call every expression of a negative opinion about public figures “bullying.” I’m not saying it is impossible to bully an adult. It is. But there is a world of difference between bullying and comments on the deliberately public actions of adults who put themselves on display.

    This is social commentary. Quincy IL mistakenly thought I was referring to her blog from yesterday about Dina, but in doing so, she referred to Mark Twain. And bingo – that is exactly what I mean. It is social commentary, in the manner of Twain. Or Will Rogers. I wish we could all be as talented as Twain or Rogers in the way we express ourselves. Some of us are pretty funny … but funny or not, misspellings and all, it is social commentary. Not bullying.

    • quincyil says:

      This site is all social commentary. We discuss behaviors, interactions, fashions, health, family dynamics, friendships, and deal with those who would prefer we left the planet Earth.

      When you understand that, you know why so many intelligent and educated women are here. You can also understand why some are jealous. The unusual part of Lynn’s family is they are welcome to the new and those who are critical as long as there is reason and respect. Honestly, if some who are critical wanted to become dissidants on the board, disagreeing politely and making their case, they would not have a problem coexisting here. I hope they read these posts.

    • quincyil says:

      Oh, my goodness. I looked at that ladies twitter.

      I am shocked.

      • Buffywood says:

        All I can say is “wow”. Lynn, how do you handle things like this? I don’t get it; clearly this person has no idea what they are talking about referring to this as a HATE BLOG repeatedly to anyone who will listen. Had Enough! your “letter” was very well written. This person knows not of which she speaks. Harassing Tabitha and Sonja directly and telling everyone she can “How dare they speak to Lynn”… It is people like this that remind me why I don’t do twitter.

        • quincyil says:

          It’s just not right. It seems this person has become a bully. Why? Her goal was admirable in the beginning? Did Jill Zarin have something to do with all of this? Jill was involved in anti bullying things on the internet a while back. Are we victims of Jill Zarin’s bullying?

          • Rabble Rouser says:

            Screw that broad- clearly she is so full of shit from her head being crammed up Jill Zarin’s ass. Lynn is a ‘hatebloger’ GTFO. If she was so worried about bullies and Bravo- she would spend her time trying to get that skrew Patty Stranger off the air.

            Full of SHIT- sorry for the language but it really burns me when Jill Zarin and her underlings exploit the death of children for their own gain.

            I twitted this broad and told her exactly what I thought of her and her pathetic little campaign.

            • Kat says:

              I love your posts.

              • Rabble Rouser says:

                Thanks- but I am really burned up about this. Seriously the gall of it all- this woman spends times tweet Bravolbrities about Lynn? How about asking them not to be on shows that women (and sometimes men) literally tear each other apart in? How about not being in shows that show a woman being HUNTED- and assaulted? How about the show where Patty Stranger humiliates and degrades her staff and anyone who walks through her doors that is less than a 10 or God forbid was born with the misfortune* of red or curly hair (*not my opinion)?

                I would love to know how such an “activist’ is so well acquainted with Bravo programing and subsequent blogs?

                When ever I see donkey dung- I KNOW there is an ass by the name of JZ near by.

      • JazzNightOut says:

        Tabatha’s publicist says they didn’t know Lynn was a bully before the interview? Can’t access what was actually said cuz the tweet is DM, but yikes! That is how Kendra is portraying it. Yikes, yikes.

        • JazzNightOut says:

          You know, I wish I hadn’t posted the above. It is just adding to the problem, and I regret doing that. Don’t want to ratchet any unpleasantness for Lynn.

    • quincyil says:

      Why isn’t it possible to have a DM or some message sent to Kendra? If she really is trying to end this kind of behavior, she needs facts.

      • Had Enough! says:

        Well, because in most cases, you just end up in a twitter war. It is really nonproductive. There was a ginormous twitter/comment war a couple of weeks back on Real City Housewife. It was like 15 different wars going on at one time. I had no idea who half these people were or what the fights were about. Some involved IHJZ, some didn’t. Some involved Dina, others involved Jen Sales. It was like the scariest, most disgusting sewer you’ve ever seen. People screaming and yelling and saying really dreadful things. One person even called the police saying that she and her children had been threatened, but then other people claimed that this person had made up a new twitter account and sent the threats herself so she could get the police involved.

        And as for me personally I never tweet anyone. I not only don’t want to get into a war, but I don’t want people I follow to know who I am.

        • quincyil says:

          I have stayed away from twitter. Why would I want unknown people to follow me?

          I only use facebook to see the family’s children in dancing videos.

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        She is in bed with Jill Zarin- no hope for her.

    • Golden Girl says:

      Agree! well said

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      This woman claims to be an an anti-bulling activities but then campaigns against Lynn- and specifically told people to bombard Sonja Morgan with tweets in an effort to ‘make her understand’. Calling for the harassment of someone because you don’t approve of who they speak to- HYPOCRITE.

      The West Baptist Church threatens to picket Military and Dignitary funerals under the banner “God Hates FAGS” (disgusting I even had to write those foul words) and she spends her time worrying about SM or TC talking to Lynn?

      BULLSHIT.

      Any credibility this woman may have had is now completely LOST

      • cdnfillie58 says:

        This whole thing had JZ written all over it…nothing more nothing less…Kendra Wallis my ass

        • Rabble Rouser says:

          What would Susan Saunders say?

          Oh I know-

          Anti-Semite!

          This “Kendra” person basically on tweets people on Bravo- and the likes of Brody Jenner. They barely have 200 followers- who I am sure can be traced back to JZ.

  7. TrueLifeDiva says:

    This episode had a lot of hair tragedies that caught my eye:

    When Cynthia gave NeNe the contract, her side part was like 1/2″ wide. The camera man must have been cracking his own jokes because he seemed to keep the light focused on that clean bald freeway going along side of NeNe’s head. I knew she had tracks for color, now I wonder if that hair is several cut up wigs glued to her head.

    Dwight rocking a “Scrunch” ‘do from 1993. I made a lot of money doing that unisex hairstyle back in the early 90’s. He needs to let it go. Dwight always appeared dapper the way only a southern man can to me, lately he’s starting to look like an old lady.

    Kim flying out to L.A. to get her bangs hi-lighted was hilarious. You’d think going to all that trouble, she’d get her bangs dyed to match a wig or two. But no! She flies across the country to get the front of her hair colored and it still looks fugly 😀

    • HD says:

      Did you say rocking a scrunch? LOL! That used to be the hairtyle. I had a scrunch. Someone should have stopped me. LOL! You are silly!

      I can’t believe Kim flies across the country to get that litle piece of her hair dyed. Really? These people have nothing better to do with their money.

    • Buffywood says:

      TLD,

      I have a “professional” question for you. My daughter wants a product called Kusco-Murphy Beach Hair for Christmas. Do you know anything about it? She has beautiful (if I do say so myself) long blonde hair. She usually straightens it but also likes to wear it with some waves for that beach look. Any advice?

    • Sha2000 says:

      She seems to be the kind of person who would spend the money to highlight her hair in LA just so she can say she flies to LA for a highlight’s that are never seen because of the wig. Imagine walking around Atlanta in the summer heat in a wig!

  8. klmh says:

    Thanks for the great blog Lynn. Enjoyed your pieces about Camille and Lisa as well.

  9. HappyKappy says:

    I think I figured out why NeNe and Kandi continue (well, at the time of filming) to hang out so much with the-thing-that-is-named-Kim….they are smart enough to know what a mockery Bravo makes out of her, and they realize the more time they spend with “it”, the more air time they will receive. And that is what it’s all about. *clap, clap*

  10. klmh says:

    Did anyone notice the red discoloration above Kim’s lip when she was talking with NeNe? I don’t think I would have noticed, except she kept trying to hide it with her hand or hair in her face. Herpes or cold sore I suppose…

  11. Adgirl says:

    Kim doesn’t bother me at all. She is high-camp. An extra large teenager.
    Remember when Joan Cusak said “I like to sing and dance in my underwear, it doesn’t make me Madonna” in Working Girl?
    Kim will never admit that she is too lazy to put the work in.
    That is WHY Tardy is a hit! She is characture and a funny one at that. Does anyone think she could ever be bothered to Google herself even though she asks people to Google Me in a song?
    If Kim were all earnest and hard working it wouldn’t be fun would it?

    NeNe is jealous because NeNe has the “big personality” and Kim has the “STFU lazy ass” attitude. Both are gay magnets because they belong in a 1980’s sitcom.

    Kandi may gripe and go on about Kim, but Kim will put butts into the seats at Kandi concerts. This show would not be worth watching if Kim wasn’t on it.

    • klmh says:

      Yep. Kim’s a manipulator and those who allow it, deserve it, including her new beau…

    • HD says:

      Kim doesn’t bother me so much because I see her for what she is and she has consistently been the same type of person. What does bother me is why everyone else continues to deal with someone that is a chronic manipulator.

      • quincyil says:

        They are on a show together and they sink or swim together. They are competitive, but they know they have to get along to some degree. I read ages ago, that the show was about Black women and at the last moment, Bravo got scared and threw Kim into the mix. I guess they thought White people would not follow hysterically funny Black women on National TV. They must not be paying attention because there are mega stars who happen to be Black and extremely popular with everyone. I doubt that Nene and Kim hung out much, but Big Poppa and Gregg were both realtors in the Atalant market and may have known each other. Big Poppa may have landed Kim the gig in fact.

    • Sha2000 says:

      Well said ADGirl, high camp indeed & she’s got a sense to humor to boot!

    • Blue Sky says:

      Thanks for that link, HD now I get what “bourghetto” means, and other connections, like Kim’s crush on Sheree, totally forgot about that. Really funny insights on the show!

  12. TLM says:

    Just heard the Tabatha interview – good work!

    That ultra-formal announcer cracks me up every time he announces, “THE I…HATE…JILL…ZARIN BLOG!” Yikes!

    • quincyil says:

      I think we should take turns announcing Lynn’s radio pod casts, like the reality stars do when the do the promos. I bet there are sultry voices, voices with accents from all over the country, and really bad voices…. like chipmunks (yes, I sound like that in recordings…) It would be a hoot.

  13. Amber...Real Wife says:

    Poor Cynthia can’t catch a break. Her offer for long lasting friendship mocked by that booze swilling, human cigarette, bimbo KimZ, and attacked for a cheeky “So the baby was full term…” comment by Phaedra! She planned and the HW’s laughed! LOL Like BugsBunny would say… “she don’t know them very well!” These women are psychotic, even, or especially Phaedra. They never met a fight they didn’t like. She better get with the program or this will be the last we see of her. While appearing a little clingy (with Nene), I’ll be interested in seeing Cynthia “come out” of her shell and let someone, anyone have it!

    • quincyil says:

      I am going to watch the show tonight. It’s fascinating reading comments when you haven’t seen the episode. I think your opinions will be with me while watching. I sure am going to look for that thing on Kim’s lip.

      • klmh says:

        Great! Let me know what you see. Did you notice last night they mentioned the same tape with AC and the apes that you mentioned earlier in the day? Amazing coincidence.

      • klmh says:

        Great. Its above Kim’s lip on her left side. Did you see WWHL last night? They mentioned the same tape you mentioned earlier in the day about AC and the apes. What a coincidence!

  14. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @Buffywood, had to google the name and found mostly good reviews. You didn’t mention how old your daughter is so its hard for me to gage if it’s worth spending $35 on a medium jar of product on her. This product is not unique in it’s concept. She probably read about it in an article or infomercial. I would suggest the following:

    Look for an online deal. Amazon.com had small jars for $14. Maybe the manufactuer is offering a combo pak of their product line at a special price for christmas.

    Is it the product or the “look” she’s in love with? Paul Mitchell, Tigi, and Bead Head make great pomades for the “beach look”. You apply sparringly to damp hair sectioned into 8-12 parts (depending on length and thickness) braid into thick plaits and let dry overnight. Undo plaits in the morning. Do NOT comb. Lightly seperate with fingers where needed and tousle at roots for fullness. Shake your head while crooning “Whip my hair” and finish with a few spritzes of gloss spray.

    Just my opinion but teens should be creative and figure out how to get those “star” looks on the cheap. This product she wants costs “Grown Peoples Money” 😀

    • Buffywood says:

      Thanks so much for the info. She will be 14 on Sunday. I did some research as well and I did find a pretty good price (I think). It got the 4 oz for $30 free shipping through one of the Amazon Marketplace stores. We both use to use a product from Bed Head, but but I can’t rember the exact name of the product. The only thing I remember is it came in a blue can that reminded me of a spray can of cheese.

      As you described is exactly how she does her hair for this look, and I love it because she looks so natural. She really likes it because it makes her hair look darker… since I won’t let her get low-lights this is the darkest she can look. Hell, she was even reading up on how to dye her hair with coffee but I will NOT let her.

    • Buffywood says:

      I am also a big fan of John Frieda Ocean Waves Sea Spray Texturizing Spray. The smell is just awesome. While doing some research on the product she wanted I found out this stuff is now considered liquid gold by some as it has been discontinued… 6 oz bottles going for $85? Wow, I have two full bottles and one 2/3rds full… I feel a little like Elaine now when doing my hair… Is this event “Sponge Worthy”…

    • TLM says:

      I think that’s “Bed Head.” “Bead Head” is what Danielle has with her extensions (“these are beaded into my real hair.”)

      Aaaaannd……scene.

    @OneMoreinBoston, I share your dressing delema. Even when dressed casual folks ask what am I dressed up for. Living in San Diego, people wear jeans and “dressy flipflops” to church even. WTH is a dressy flipflop? Seriously?
    You mentioned the other day being a size 10 (I’m an 8-6 haha) but didn’t say apple or pear shaped. Growing up I never wore jeans and have always felt akward in them. Plus I could never find any that fit my pear shaped figure. I found the key to the universe when I noticed a friend of mine wearing perfectly fitting jeans. I was confused because she has an extreme coke bottle figure with a bubble booty. I asked her where did she find jeans that fit her small waist, bubble butt, and curvy thighs. She said, “Girl, go to Ross or Marshall’s and buy jeans on sale 1 size larger. Then take them to a tailor for a customized fit.” She then told me the taylor she goes to was less than a mile from my house. She charges $7 a pair including hemming. From the age of 18-33 I owned two pairs of jeans, now I own 5 pairs that I wear fairly often. I don’t wear leggings except for a bootcut pair I own because now I know a tapered leg emphasizes my “healthy” hips and thighs. Otherwise it’s skirts, maxi dresses, and heels. 🙂

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      oh my naive fiancee!

      I SAY I’m a size 10 but a size 10 is actually the smallest I have ever been. When I was 15.

      I am a 14 but a damn gorgeous 14!

      OK, OK still a 14. sigh…

      I have big hips, and big boobs. I don’t wear underwear because my ass is so big that no undies fit me except granny panties and G strings.

      I decided to “Free Willy!!!” a long time ago.

      I do that with my blouses and jackets, get a 16, and get it tailored to my waist.

      To add to all this size problem, I’m actually a petite. But I’m 5’7″. I now, I know, my measurements make no sense- but I have a small back and shoulders, a small waist, and pretty good legs.

      So I always look like a tube of toothpaste that got squeezed all the way to the top, and then someone pinched in the tube at the waist.

      My tailor is a Russian lady who optimistically calls me curvy. If I tip her well, she calls me hourglass. Once when she was in a REALLY good mood she called me Marilyn Monroe like. I hugged her and kissed her on the cheek. She never called me that again.

  16. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @BuffyWood, given that she is 14 she is experimenting to find her look/identity. I know as a mom you want her to keep her lovely blonde hair. I suggest a compremise. There are temp colors that wash out over 4-6 weeks that you could let her try. Make it a reward for good grades or doing a major chore, etc. Clairol makes a line called Jazzing that has fashion and natural colors for around $6 a bottle. I just recently gifted a bottle of blue black to a friends teen son who wanted to dye his gorgeous Aubourn hair black because he is Goth. He has to keep straight A’s to keep the color or wait until he’s 18 to go permanent ;-). I don’t know how light your daughters hair is but Cream Soda or Chestnut might be nice colors from the line that would darken her hair without looking like Elvira 😀

    Completely OT, but cute story. My little boy turned 5 today and two cute things he said:
    You know Mommy I felt 5 even when I was 4;
    When I turn 5, I’m going to look back and think about all the things I did when I was 4 (a couple of weeks ago!)
    What I would give to be that full of excitment and life. Children really are the joy of the earth.
    Happy Holidays everyone!

    • Buffywood says:

      I love the story, thanks for sharing it.

      My little guy became a big boy of sorts today too. It was his first day of “school”. He is now in childcare since my SIL was diagnosed with breast cancer. He will be 3 at the end of February and I am just so proud of how big and brave he was today.

      • 2Stupid says:

        So sorry to hear about your SIL. That said, both my little ones have been in daycare since they were babies and are bothe really social. My 2 yr old had her first “classmate” birthday party and I thought she was going to burst from excitement. It is hard letting someone else watch your child, but I have always been really lucky and felt confident with the people watching mine. Of course my youngest is going to the same place her older brother went so that eases some of the anxiety. She will start preschool this fall!

        • Buffywood says:

          My daughter started daycare when she was about 6 months old and it was so wonderful for her. I know he really needs this especially at his age as he has had so little interaction with other kids, and I while I don’t LOVE where he is, I know he will be well cared for and safe (the owner is an old family friend). In late spring he will be moving to the same school my daughter went to and it is fantastic.

    I kinda found last night’s episode a let down. Usually they are funny, but last night there was too much talking bad behind each other’s back for me.

    It’s too bad that Cynthia’s joke fell flat, I guess comedy isn’t her strong point. But the way that the other housewives reacted to it was just weird and gross, especially since her 3 worst critics (Kim, Sheree and Phaedra) are 3 of the most useless idiots to ever rob the rest of the planet of needed oxygen. After watching Kim “sing”, Sheree “act”, and Phaedra have a “happy marriage”, I don’t find any of them qualified to criticize others as crazy gossiping lesbian stalkers. Unless of course they were looking in one of those numerous mirrors Kim has all over the house!

    I don’t know what game Phaedra’s playing, but it’s stopped being funny. Now I just shout “Shut up!” at the TV over and over again. It’s too OTT crazy.

    I suppose it is kinda funny that Kim and Sheree think they can actually do anything but walk forward in a straight line, but Phaedra actually does have a business and quite frankly after this show, I’m suspecting she’s a “lawyer” in the same way Mr Tye is a “doctor”, and Sheree is a “woman”. It was particularly rich that she dished about Kim’s degree, since I was just thinking the same thing about her law degree. Some people open their own offices because they are ambitious, other people open their own offices because they can’t find or keep a job. Just sayin.

    And what is up with Kandi? This episode she took a break from showing the world that she can sing circles around Kim, to show the world she can act circles around Sheree. I know she was pissed Sheree won the car race, but pay-backs really are a bitch when you cross Kandi I guess.

I am “the pants” so to speak in the family as I pay the bills, make more money than DH and have been in a marriage for more than 21 years! DH thinks I am the bomb, since I don’t think that making more money in the household makes you better, and he hates being responsible for paying the bills.

      How much does it cost? I can imagine once in a while, Starbucks is a treat. It blows my mind (& financial prudence) that people who have to use a charge card to pay for their Starbucks obsession can’t figure out why they have no money. If you are talking about Kellidiot, she most likely is getting paid to tweet about products, like Kim Kardashian who gets $1,000 a tweet. If Kellidiot is getting paid for tweets…then the people paying her need to do better research!

            Lynn needs to get used to these sweet nothings from these nobodys! Come on now, Liz Smith, a big old manly lady was so respected and feared no one dared criticize her looks, physique or sexuality. Cindy Adams, the unspoken truth, looks plastic from all her procedures and was damn near screwing a corpse because Joey was “ooold” way before he died. RIP JoeyAdams.

            PhyllisDiller, JoanRivers and KathyGriffin, all women who make spot on, catty observations, have been called the most horrible names and they just keep it coming…like they don’t care. Lynn’s not trying to be a comedianne, she’s just a blogger/radio personality, commenting on these shows and her outrage and snark IS funny. So JJB, if Lynn doesn’t float your boat, get off her ass and find another floatation device, or you can have a coke and a smile and STFU! 🙂

            • JuJuBee says:

              Amber, are you seriously comparing Lynn to Joan & Kathy? Really? No comparison there at all. Radio Personality? You actually have to be on the radio to be referred to as a “radio personality”. Recorded phone calls uploaded to some random website no one knows about does not make a radio personality. Howard Stern, Wendy Williams are radio personalities. Lynn..well, I don’t know what the hell you’d actually call that, but it sure as hell isn’t “radio personality”. Suck on that along with your flotation device, Amber 🙂

              • Amber...Real Wife says:

                Gee JJB, are you in love with Lynn? Is that why you want to punch her out? LOL Look if you like it I love it, just propose already so she can shoot you down, OK? I hear she’s married and I don’t know if you’re a he or a she but it seems you are a little obsessed with the chi-town snark queen that no one knows about. I think she’s getting a little too big for you to handle as she’s getting HW’s to come on her recorded show, much like WW and Howard did it when they started. Is it too much too soon for you?

      • JuJuBee says:

        Ashamed of what, speaking the truth? Nope, sorry, not ashamed at all. This blog is full of constant rudeness…you have to be kidding me. The comment about Phaedra’s mother Lynn made was rude, but you seemed to have overlooked that.

        • Rabble Rouser says:

          It wasn’t Lynn’s personal opinion of Phedra’s mother- it was her OBSERVATION of Bravo showing footage they showed.

          Phaedra saying her mom was staying with them- followed by scene of a restaurants quantity of groceries being delivered, followed by a scene of cupcakes and Phedrea saying they were going to gorge on them.

          Don’t like it? Write a letter- TO BRAVO.

      • HD says:

        It comes with the territory. Lynn is getting more popular and people will come out of the woodwork to comment on anything. Which means she is doing her job and doing it well. I am sure she will hardly be offended. The comment was rude but like we say, dust your shoulders off, meaning it means nothing.

        Kim looked like a fool eating pizza and doing the laser fat be gone thing. That was a waste of money.

        As for Phaedra’s mom, that was A LOT of food but that is what mom’s do when a new baby is in the house. They cook, they prepare, they make stuff to freeze and whatnot so the new mom doesn’t have to cook especially after having a C-section. I thought nothing of it. *kanye shrug*

        • quincyil says:

          I thought about this while driving home today. Lynn would not be as famous if it wasn’t for the “I hate Jill Zarin” name. There are thousands of blogs, but Lynn got noticed. You also can’t change people’s minds because so many are not open to logic. So. I guess the only thing you can do is be the best blogger on the planet and Lynn is striving for that goal. I give her a lot of credit for that.

          • JazzNightOut says:

          How exactly does Kim stay in shape?? I don’t get it. There’s only so much you can do with lasers. For someone who never works out and has 2 kids, she looked pretty darn good to me. Yet all I see is her drinking beer, eating nachos, pizza and fried things. I don’t think I’ve ever seen her eat a green vegetable. Hell, she even turned up her nose at guacamole!

      What I really love more than JuJuBees is the little flavored pops from See’s Candies in California. I used to get them for my son at Christmas for his stocking. Send them to him (and he shares with his kids) every Christamas. They have the best flavors.

I also happily used my husbands last name in most cases after I was married. Now that I am divorced I can simply pick and choose as my driver’s license still shows both.

    Great blog Lynn. Thanks!!

  28. JazzNightOut says:

    Having read yesterday’s and today’s blogs + comments, I believe, as well as others here do, that Kendra is attached to Jill in some strategic way. It always comes down to who has the most to lose when a blog, entitled IHJZ, becomes more and more famous?

    However, I also know a former love of mine on this board (and I did love the little furry tailed animal) has a very, very, very hard time with Lynn’s success. I am going to scroll on by trolls from now on. I feel better in myself when I do, and Lynn knows that I love her, her blog and all of the LynnFam. Don’t need to prove it. I will, btw, thank all those reality stars who give Lynn interviews; love hearing them and really appreciate that they give the interview. This is a very large blog, and RH franchises could reach a lot of readers by letting Lynn ask the questions we most want to hear answsered, and WAITING for the whole answer. Great interviews because she listens. And, btw, a bully does not listen; they talk over others, JZ and KKB.

    So glad to know all of you and very grateful to interact with women and men who tell it like it is.

    • Had Enough! says:

      Unless it was by DM, then Kendra Wallis also lied. She tweeted on 12/10 that Tabatha Coffey stepped up and said that her publicist was not aware that IHJZ is a hate blog, and implied that Tabatha apologized for doing an interview with Lynn. So I checked Tabatha’s tweets and there is only one tweet to Kendra Willis.

      It reads, in its entirety: “@end2bullying ??”

      There have been no tweets from Kendra Wallis since 12/10. I do not like bullies and I also don’t like liars.

      • JazzNightOut says:

        Read @end2bullying’s timeline. It was by DM that she contacted Tabatha’s whatever. We don’t know that Tabatha or her whatever actually responded; we only have K’s tweet to that effect. I am sure that Tabatha has a lot of experience with Twitter and can evaluate a smalltime tweeter with an agenda v. Lynn w/out one except to provide commentary, satire, laughs and information. All her publicist has to do is look at the Twitter profile. So, very longwinded agreement, lol.

    • Waslurking says:

      Do you really think it ALL comes down to Jill? I can’t stand her either but I think
      it’s giving her too much credit to her to blame her at this point.

    Thank you to all of you for the support, its been a long day with the crazy nut lady on Twitter who luckily did NOT get to Sonja. In fact I got a lovely email from Sonja saying that she respects that we allowed her to give her honest opinion of Jill and Kelly without any “creative editing”.

    Tabatha did make a very nice comment on the post for the podcast on Carly’s Facebook page so I’m fairly sure that everything is ok with Tabatha as well.

    • historykc says:

      Keep doing what you do! i’m fairly new to the blog, but i enjoyed your interviews and have always enjoyed your recaps. I think the thing many miss is that at one point, most of the posters here really liked Jill. Watching the first two seasons, it’s hard not to root for her. However, between the delusional/trail-covering twitters and posts on Amazon, the phone convo with Stanger, the friendship with KBB and her behavior on season 3- it was hard to rationalize being a fan of her. I personally, don’t “hate” Jill. I dislike her and her irrational behavior and hope that one day she gets back to doing what she used to do: being a mom, friend, connector… not starting wars online or on camera with those she’s felt have wronged her.

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        well put.

        And I am in your camp. I really don’t hate her, but I sure hate the behaviors she displayed starting in Season 3. She was just running amok.

        • Had Enough! says:

          I used to think that too but then a friend of mine said she’d hated JZ since season 1 and started to list the reasons why and I realized she was right. The season 3 Jill was there all along. We just didn’t see it. First it took some time to get to know everyone, then a lot of it was covered by the funny interaction with Bethenny…but my friend had a list (ha ha!) and when I watched the old episodes a few months later, she was so right!

          • twoile says:

        • quincyil says:

          Jill is Human like the rest of us. She does some really great things. However, when she perceives a slight, she thinks it’s ok to go after and punish the person she feels slighted her. I think it’s normal to feel hurt, but abnormal to attack. That Bobby and others accept Jill’s attacking others speak poorly of them. I think this is coming from Gloria. Lisa, Jill’s sister supports Jill even when she is wrong. Jill’s nephew takes this to the extreme. There is something wrong in that family and Jill grew up with this so she doesn’t know it is bad behavior. Glorifying marriage for financial profit is from Gloria too.

        He is easier to look at than some of those housewives – his employer be leading the list…..

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        It’s like not only is he suppose to be her man-but he’s getting Kelsey’s ‘Billing’ because to some of these women (cough- Camille-sough) pecking order is important.

        It’s like she is saying her surrogate spouse is worth more than the actual husbands of the other housewife’s.

    • AZ Girl says:

      I keep seeing his wife in the scenes when they walk in as a group with DeDe and the other paid friends (not when he is alone with Camille) and then she seems to disappear. It’s like the wife is whoring him out. Really strange.

  33. LynnNChicago says:

    Mystery solved. Sorry for the delay but our TROLL yesterday who went by the name of “Seriously” is our very own “Saving Grace”. Bridge burned to the ground.

    Say Good Bye Gracie

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      ahhhh…the wassup detective found her.

    • quincyil says:

      I don’t remember her posts, but I am sorry she felt this way and had to be banned.

      • HD says:

        I told you, Quincy! I knew it! I knew that was someone that had been coming here and that we knew. Which was sooooooooo pathetic because if she had something to say why not say it as Saving Grace? I mean sheesh! I can respect anyone’s opinion but don’t come in hiding, come as who you are and get it off your chest.

        • quincyil says:

          That makes it all the more sad for me. She was a member and now she can’t share. I would rather that she used her name and stated how she felt. Why did she feel she had to hide?

          • Need a Hobby says:

            You assume poster wasn’t “hiding” under the known nick.

          • I think the whole thing was sad. there was nothing to complain about in Quincys blog. it was funny, and .well written. this person was just looking to stir the pot. it upset me only because I could see it was upsetting others and that was what she wanted. maybe she has become jealous of Quincys’ talents, whatever. We need to ignore these negative, attacking trolls, because they THRIVE on our attention.

            love you Lynn and Quincy. you wouldnt have these problems if you weren’t so popular!

            • LynnNChicago says:

              Thanks Beverly! You’re right, Quincy has done such a great job, why should I get all the negative attention, I’m happy to share LMAO

            • Rabble Rouser says:

              I really didn’t get how that whole thing spun out of control. It was as if they decided Quincy set out to be mean and hurt someone’s feelings at the same time as saying they couldn’t beleive it because they thought she was above that sort of thing.

              If she didn’t get or couldn’t read the humor it would have been fine to say so- but then accept when Quincy said that she really wasn’t trying to do all those things she was accused of and it wasn’t her intention to hurt anyone.

              Being called mean, cruel, heartless?

              Come on- just say you didn’t get the joke and be done with it

              • quincyil says:

                I remembered a few things yesterday. Every once in a while Saving Grace did dissect my reviews and point out a failure which I acknowledged and thanked her for helping. Something was cutting with that and I sensed it, but did not respond in kind. After reflection, Saving Grace was not a member of the community, but rather an opponent of the community. That is her right, but it does not make sense to me. I have looked at boards and if there are comments I don’t like, I don’t go back. I don’t look for trouble, it just finds me.

      • Need a Hobby says:

        Feh, IMO the whole point of the exercise was the aggro, nothing substantive. Faux issue & “concern.” If not one thing, would have been another. Not first time at that rodeo.

    • Kat says:

      Guess I’ll ship Grace some of my kibble. And a pair of thumb warmers. Holiday spirit and all.

  34. JazzNightOut says:

    Time to get ready for Bethenny. Tweeted her outfit tonight is Skinnygirl colors. But she always wears red and black! Hope she is on first so I don’t have to watch the whole program and can come back for the end.

  35. WindyCityWondering says:

    Jason and Julie are in the audience tonight – good luck Bethenny!

  36. Adgirl says:

    Can we have a LynnFam “pinky promise” to ignore those who seek to disrupt our fun?

  37. TLM says:

    “Permit me to introduce myself…I am the Betty WEISS of the ice…ice is nice, but liquor is quicker.”

    Dick Button has lost it, folks.

    And then Johnny Weir took an AK-47 and fired at Bethenny. There was a puff of smoke and when it cleared, a Skinnygirl Margarita bottle standing on the ice.

    You gotta hand it to Ethan…when Johnny Weir said he didn’t care to watch Bethenny perform anymore, Ethan said, “Well, then we’ll just get our scores then,” and pulled her off the ice.

    I take back my defense of Johnny Weir last week. I do think he’s on crack.

  38. Shannon says:

    Does anyone know the best place to complain to ABC about Johnny Weir? He needs to be replaced. This show is such a joke having him on it.

  39. Zipit Zarin says:

    HOLY SHITBALLS! I have never seen such unprofessionalism. Ever. Johnny Weird said he didn’t care to see Bethenny skate anymore. This has to be for ratings. And the old fart said something about her being the Bristal Palin of the show…missed what he said after that cuz I was in shock.

    • HD says:

      I missed it again!!! I have never caught this show when it comes on.

      Did they actually say these things on the show?!!

      • Zipit Zarin says:

        YES! Can you believe that!!???

        • I can’t believe I missed that crazy show AGAIN! what time is it on? I thought 9?
          From the way it sounds Im really glad I missed it…..

        • HD says:

          Those things were out of line. I cannot believe he said that. I cannot believe they called her the Bristol Palin of the show. If they want to get rid of her, being mean is not the way because that just fires up her fans more. I cannot believe they said those things to her. That is REALLY sad. How did she look? Did she take it with a grain of salt?

      • Mimisfbay says:

        Me too! I never remember to watch that show. Damn. Did that creep really say that?
        Acccckkkkk.

    • quincyil says:

      Petulant child….

  40. vilzvet says:

    Wow that was harsh Mr. Weir…kinda jawdropping. But our girl Bethenny didn’t really seem to care!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Johnny is a vapid, whinny little brat and he couldn’t rattle our reality superstar so he got pissy with her!
      Epic fail for the mediocre skater and the Queen of Darkness (JZ) won’t be too happy with him either after that meltdown! So I will be sending a message to NBC that I don’t care to see Johnny Weir anymore on any program, affiliate channel or commercial.

      • quincyil says:

        I think there was controversy in the Olympics when he wore quite feminine attire. At the time, my thought was “Who cares?” The press and Johnny really played that up. Then he shows up on the Racheal Zoe show. He calls Brad and bothers him at odd moments. Brad seemed frustrated, but you don’t turn down business.

        Bethenny is saying things out of school because she is hurt too. That show is a mass of emotions. I think she was incredible during the tricks, but when she hit the ice she faultered almost every time. It’s amazing that she can do this in a few weeks of skating, but judges don’t gush or they shouldn’t gush.

    • Need a Hobby says:

      Ya know if the Daily Beast article’s estimates are in the right neighborhood, if B indeed made at least $4 million this year, if I were her I’d be laughing all the way to the bank, while getting free PR on a national broadcast network.

      & When others are making public asses of themselves, the best thing to do is just let them. And smile.

      • quincyil says:

        Bethenny puts on a good act, but children who feel unloved and abandoned don’t take rejection well.

        • JazzNightOut says:

          Yes, I think this bothers her more than she shows, but she doesn’t let it show. And with the animosity w/Weir, I think it is the best way to go. Love B. for both her chutzpah and her vulnerability; like most of us.

        • Need a Hobby says:

          Or they’ve learned long before not to judge themselves through others eyes & have learned to go their own way.

          One way to survive growing up with “crazy” or simply dysfunctional people: you consider the source & take it fwiw. & sometimes it’s not worth very much at all.

      • After all the Johnny controversy I’d be surprised if ABC picks this dog n pony act up for another season. That should make JZ happy.
        She’ll never have to worry about turning them down again.

  41. Mimisfbay says:

    Loved the podcasts! Fab job. The blog is spot on as always!

    YOU GO LYNN! I love you and your professionalism and the *home* you’ve made here. People who don’t appreciate it and you can “suck it!!” 😀

  43. Confabulating Kelly says:

    lol at Johny Wier!
    Skating with the Stars; serious business folks!!
    Granted technicaly Bethany has the worst skating skills of those remaining on the competition. Yes they have not improved much although she performed better overall this week. But this is reality TV not the Grand Prix finals of figure skating. Maybe this is the best she can be at this point, not all contestants can experience the same progress nor did they start at the same baseline. I assume he’s pissed because his allegience is to Jill Zarin and he likely assumes that to Bethany this just nothing more than an opportunity to advertise her brand. 100% inaapropriate on his part, especialy after his awkward speech about not making things personal last week. I hope, if there is another season, he’s replaced.

  44. Undermywheels says:

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      “A lovely kitchen, but honey-child, those leopard print rugs are atrocious.”

      well crap, I have those exact same rugs in my foyer and hallway. I think I must be tacky and don’t even know it.

      ok…going to make some fried SPAM sang-wiches. No not really, just with mayonaise and white bread- delish!

      • quincyil says:

        I am going to run out and buy those rugs because you have them and I am going to copy your interior decorations. I want to be “House Beautiful.” (LOL… I had “Vogue” there, but I looked it up. “Vogue” is only fashions and I don’t want to wear rugs to formal events.)

    • TLM says:

      Love how this woman brags that she didn’t use a designer. That house looks like a 1980s starter home for a couple that don’t necessarily have much money…or taste. The maple wood/black kitchen appliances are dated, as is her little mini-island with barstools and low-set cabinets with crappola on top of them. Cheap-looking counter. The rugs are totally Home Depot or Lowe’s. Leopard rugs on the kitchen floor? Ooh, chic. The furniture looks like it might have come from Flea Market Montgomery or a furniture sale from one of those trucks that unloads sofas and upholstered chairs on the lawn in front of a mall near me. The sofas in the TV room and her bedroom look so sad and depressing and don’t fit the space. Every framed thing she has on the walls is hung too high; it should be at eye level and looks ridiculous when it is not. I think I would run screaming if I had to use that “Night of the Living Dead” bathroom…her “custom wallpapers” are horrible. What the hell was going on in that sad corner of her “study,” where they didn’t even show the room? The living room window treatments were cheesy…the OC and ATL women need to cool it with the swags already; it looks like a bad hotel room. And the wing chairs she used at either end of her dining table are not only too patterned for that room, they are not meant for dining!! They are side chairs for a living room. The dining table is pure Plaster Emporium. And the rug does not GO with that dizzying wallpaper!!! Ugh, I have a headache!!!!

      I don’t look down my nose at decent people who have ordinary furnishings or just don’t know how to put things together. What galls me is this woman prances around telling everyone how sophisticated she is and how much class she has, and how she only wants the “best of the best.” Meanwhile she has pictures hung a couple feet from her ceilings and thinks donuts have barbarian cream, and says she loves “foe bwah” when it’s “fwah grah”. She’s excited about beating her child. “Boughetto?” She should be so lucky.

      • You are so funny TLM, you always bring a smile to my face!
        I always wonder how fast you type!! BAM! anyway,,,
        The wallpaper is too much, the pictures are hung too high and the
        kitchen, well for being in an ”estate home w/ 5br and 5bath”,
        the kitchen is kinda sad. I did see some things i liked, the chairs in the living room were nice an I liked the fabric in them.

      • twoile says:

        Fantastic review, & oh so true. I find that those who market themselves often have a empty product.

        • Sha2000 says:

          I don’t care for her taste at all either but I do have to say at least she’s not living in a home way above her means like many of the other HW’s are.

          • HD says:

            I didn’t really like the items/style she had in the house. I am sure someone could come in there and really decorate it for her.

            Also I am not talking about anyone but its because as TLM said, she tries to be more than what she is. I stay in a very modest apartment that no one would be impressed with. I am thankful for my apartment and that I have a roof over my head.

    • quincyil says:

      No, I think she is a tad more curvy this year. She’s under a lot of financial stress, but she keeps trying. Stress causes hunger in some people.

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        oh that’s a good excuse, I’m going to have to remember that one.

        “It’s the economy, stupid” remember that quote?

        of course that was when we actually had an economy.

  50. Jen says:

    I just watched this episode of RHOA and maybe I didn’t get because I saw Dwight embelish the story but he did name Kim as the one who said about an alien baby ( which was a lie bc no one said that, right?) but I thought I heard Dwight attribute the quote to Kim…… He just said Cynthia was talking in general…. Maybe I wasn’t hearing right though

    • Zarout! says:

      Kim totally said the alien thing. I thought he told Phaedra that Cynthia made those remarks, but I’m not 100% sure.

      • HD says:

        I have to watch it again. I think he said Cynthia or he wasn’t clear who said what so Phaedra lumped them both together.

        The word alien was mentioned but it was in terms of gestation and not what her baby looked like.

  51. Zarout! says:

    I have never watch SWTS, but I manage to keep up with what’s going on by reading this blog. I just happened to catch Bethenny’s performance & Johny Weir’s comments tonight. What a total d-bag! You can tell he’s SO pissed that everyone is still supporting Bethenny and that he’s getting heat for being so rude to her every week. It’s hilarious! He’s trying so desperately to get under Bethenny’s skin, but he can’t do it. What a total loser! I hope he enjoys being Zarin’s hand puppet. He’s going to end up being hated by everyone just like she is…

  52. TrueLifeDiva says:

    @OneMoreinBoston, the proper SOUTHERN pronunciation of the late night snack you are preparing is “Sammich”. Sangwich is the eye-talian version. Spam with mayo on WonderBread is what Apollo grew up on, get it right 😀

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      LOL- my godmother was Scilian and she always pronounced it Sang-wich.
      I didn’t even KNOW that there was a Southern pronunciation too!

      SPAM on WonderBread with Mayo. Check. My rugs are tacky according to both TLM and the website up thread and I don’t even know how to eat proper white people food.

      I’ve got a lot to learn.

      OT- once on the Sopranos, Paulie was cooking in either the club house, or the back of the strip club and someone complained about some food he had made. And he said “c’mon now, that’s mayonnaise talk” It stayed in my head and every once in a while when I hear something stupid I mutter under my breath- “that’s mayonnaise talk”

  53. Zipit Zarin says:

    Great interview with Sonja, Lynn. The nugget about Gilbert still being a friend of Foghorn’s and Twinkeltoes KKB was great. It’s fabulous that they cut her out of the show. tee hee You are a wonderful interviewer…I said it before, you ask the questions we all want to know and don’t scare the person off by being snarky. 😀 I would keep pushing for more dirt and ruin it. LOL

      • Need a Hobby says:

        It was a clown car with a wind up key on the back.

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        Because the owner falsely accused her of theft, because there was missing $ from his shop.

        His wife found the $ in his shirt pocket and the guy never even apologized to her, which IMHO was pretty shitty.

        So here he is, so afraid someone is going to rip him off that he is blaming someone who’s innocent- and then he goes and REALLY gets ripped off.

        He tempted fate and fate won.

        • Need a Hobby says:

          The clown car story was shorter.

      • boston02127 says:

        @TLM –A while back he was missing a large sum of $. He didn’t come right out and blame me but he asked me if I took it and let me go with the excuse that he wanted to down size. Later his wife called me. She found the money in one of his sweatshirts.

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

            Had a similar thing happen when a boss randomly stopped speaking to me & had me let go via a 3rd party, no explanation. I used to wonder what he did all day, since it seemed like he just walked around with a coffee cup a la Lumbergh in Office Space. Well, I found out months later that a couple weeks after he had the axe dropped on me, he himself was fired. There is justice in the world sometimes.

      Why is there a bizarre, random glass octopus climbing into the roses? It doesn’t look like a Jay Strongwater piece- and even if it is that wouldn’t be a good enough excuse, for it being there.

    Johnny W. was so beyond horrible in his comments to Bethenny. She may not be the best skater there but there was no need for him to be so nasty.

    Skating with the Stars show.

    I watched it and honestly I thought she did a lot better than she has been doing in the past. However, Bethanny looks so tired which is understandable given all that she does. Her face looks very drawn to me. Maybe its that makeup or something.

    In the name of science, I will devote the next 12 hours to the intense and painful effort of imagining that I am eating cheesecake:

    Will let you know how it turns out. If you don’t hear from me, please send a scouting party to all delis in a 50-mile radius.

      If I find you can I have the leftovers??? Oh, and I promise to wiped the crumbs out of your hair before I call the cute firemen.

        There will be no leftovers. Please send in the Marines. Cute marines. Straight or gay, marines are HOT!

    (Miss Lurker Also has been mia for the past couple weeks doing Christmas stuff. Had to come on here and share when I saw this. AOL has it headlined today. I’m not watching SWTS because it’s been so boring, but I may tune in next week after this. Maybe that’s the whole plan.)

    ENOUGH!!!
    This is my first and last visit to this website. Lynne IS a hate-monger. She is worse than any of the housewives put together. Her blogs should be banned from any website. All of these PEOPLE who she continually bashes are human beings, just as (I presume) she is and as such be treated with respect.
    ENOUGH!!!

      But we all love you. Embrace us as we lovingly embrace your dear misguided soul.

      Gag me. Shoot my ass now.

      You are entitled to your opinion. I do not share it. Many people do not share it. Those who wish to leave, may leave. Those who wish to stay may stay. All that is asked of you is that you are not disrespectful to other participants.

      The people on these programs are more than happy to make themselves look ridiculous for ratings and cash. They aren’t trying to get our respect. And I defy you to find any website or blog that says anything other than what is said here. Try Richard Lawson on Gawker. This is child’s play compared to Gawker.

      If this is the first and last time to visit this site, you might want to read what is written here before passing judgement.

      LMAO…I wasn’t disappointed

  69. Lbryant936 says:

    I know everyone will disagree with me. Guess what – I don’t care. It is what it is. I’m tired of everyone who are fans of Miss Frankel bashing others. It is totally uncalled for.

    • Kat says:

      Bethenny rocks!

    • LynnNChicago says:

      I am tired of Johnny Weir bashing Ms. Frankel, from day one he had it in for her, he wanted to make a fool of her and she’s just fighting back. He holds all the cards and he’s being a little bitch!

      • American Idiot says:

        If you want to sent a complain to ABC about Johnny Weir, it is very easy to do. Go to the SWTS website, scroll down to the bottom. Under Company Information, click on contact us. An email page comes us. Just type in the show, topic, your e mail adress and write your comment/complaint. Hit send, and your message is sent.

    • cdnfillie58 says:

      as Mr Weir told Bethenny last night, if you don’t care what we think then we don’t care to read your post .. that makes me happy 😛

    • klmh says:

      Wait, what happened. I thought your post up thread was your first and last visit to this site.
      See, it is addicting, isn’t it?
      By the way, Im not a big Bethany fan, but she doesn’t leave dead or dying bodies behind her as she climbs to the top, as others on NYH have, but I won’t mention any names.

      • quincyil says:

        I think Johnny Weir was told about this site. I wonder if Jill is helping her friend by telling him that some people don’t care for him. With friends like that, who needs enemies?

    GO AWAY. I do not believe that any of us are rude to posters, be it new or not. If you don’t like us here please leave. Lynn runs a great board. We are free to agree to disagree in a nice way.

  72. Had Enough! says:

    Oh, lordy, it is going to be one of those days.

    Well, back to the important issues of the day. Now I admire Bethenny Frankel. She is funny (though crosses the line sometimes, especially when she is nervous). I admire her hustle. I admire her openness. Of all the housewives, she is the one who really lets people see who she is, warts and all. Only Sonja Morgan, Lisa Vanderpump, and Kyle Richards seem to be sharing this trait.

    But I have to say – girl is not skating. She is a prop for her partner. I am not talking about the lifts. I am talking about the basic forward and backward skating. She may take a few steps, but mostly he is dragging her around the ice.

    FWIW, my dislike of others has nothing to do with my admiration for Bethenny Frankel. I really, truly don’t like some of them for reasons entirely unrelated to Bethenny Frankel. If I subtract out anything that involves Bethenny Frankel, there is more than enough left over to dislike these other women. And I like Ramona even though she was really nasty to B., and don’t feel one way or the other about LuAnn, even though she and B had words, too. In fact, I kind of like LuAnn because when she’s off the show, she goes about living her life more or less privately. And for me that’s the bottom line – the way they behave OFF the show. I realize that the cameras distort behavior and the editing does make it impossible to know the whole story. Not saying that the editors deliberately make someone look bad (maybe they do but I don’t know that). But the mere process of choosing what to show and what to leave out, which shots to use …. definitely distorts what really happened. So knowing that, I judge them by their off-air behavior, and some of them really are … vomitaceous.

    I hate Jill Zarin.
