I Hate Jill Zarin Thursday Updates and Previews – Real Housewives
Preview of The Real Housewives of New York
Bravo has finally announced that the new episodes will begin to air in February, we know that the ladies all flew off to Morocco to film and they’ve released a quick preview of what we’re going to see. There is a scene that appears to be Sonja yelling at Alex and throwing her out of her house. But don’t forget, Bravo likes to trick us, this could have been Sonja telling Alex what she said to someone else.
Alex is seen describing one of her cast mates as a “Thug in a cocktail dress”, this could be Kelly or it could be Jill Zarin, my guess would have to be Jill, but Alex isn’t saying. Fans have tweeted to her asking which housewife she’s referring to, no surprise she won’t tell.
There was no PP, (private plane) as Jill calls it, taking the ladies to Morocco and news leaked of the filming location when Jill, Luann and Kelly were seen checking in at the airport in New York City, a later flight took Alex, Sonja, Ramona and Cindy Barshop, the newest housewife overseas.
While the ladies were gone, Simon tweeted how he missed his wife and he was just relaxing with his two sons over the weekend, I’m sure all of the ladies missed their children and families, I wonder if Kelly will tell us she was FORCED by Bravo to go to Morocco.
A little about the newest NY Housewife, Cindy Barshop, she owns a string of spa/salon type establishments called “Completely Bare” specializing in laser hair removal and one of their services is bedazzling the Vajayjay…and working on Paris Hilton. She’s got 5-6 shops in NYC and in Florida. Cindy is a single mom of twin girls (1 ½ years old) Ramona said of Cindy, “We have this new girl coming on. She is very happy with herself,” Ramona Singer said. “Not to say I’m not going to get pissed at her or have a fight with her.”
We expect nothing less of you Ramona!
I doubt that we’ll see much change in Jill Zarin, her vile treatment of Alex in the past won’t soften particularly since her plan to get Alex thrown off the show didn’t work. Although Jill Tweeted to Alex a few weeks ago:
@JillZarin: Thank you again @mccordalex for helping me today. I gave Ricki your book! Please wish Johan a happy bday. Tell him I have a present for him?
Do you suppose this is Jill’s latest attempt at Kelly’s PR 101 and PR102 rules? Kelly’s genius plan is to publically be kind to the enemy hoping viewers will think you’re the bigger person, reaching out to the other “team”.
Jill’s tweet and Alex’s kind response led viewers to believe that these two ladies have called a truce, but Jill said herself that she would never forgive Alex for the “message” fiasco. Jill even said she might forget, because she forgets things but she’ll never forgive. I believed her.
If this upcoming season includes any type of friction between Jill Zarin and Sonja Morgan, it has to be clear to viewers that Jill simply can’t get along with anyone! Sonja Morgan made it clear last season that she wasn’t taking sides, she didn’t walk into this show with preconceived notions about any of the housewives. She gave everyone a chance and even befriended the insane Kelly Bensimon in St. John.
Even after Jill’s snide remarks about Sonja at the New York Bachelor party, Sonja laughed it off even though it was very hurtful. Jill did apologize to Sonja, as she should particularly since she did not know Sonja at all when she made those comments.
We know the upcoming season will have friction, arguments and heated debates, the question may just be who will be arguing with whom? Rumor has it the new girl, Cindy has joined the JZ team and Sonja has firmly landed on Alex’s team but you never know what could happen…
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills –
Bravo’s previews of the Beverly Hills housewives show Camille hosting a tennis match/party inviting Kyle and Adrienne with their families to her home. Last we saw Camille and Kyle had buried the hatchet but the over the top way that Camille greeted Kyle was typically fake and phony.
Camille included her “friend” Nick and his family for the guest list and as Nick shows up in a blonde wig, Camille grabs his face and plants a wet one right on his lips as Nick’s wife looks on seemingly in disgust. Kyle interviews that if Camille kissed her husband like that, she’d no longer have any lips, I guess she would probably need to borrow some from Taylor.
Giving Taylor some slack, she also has an emotional scene coming up this week with Kyle. Apparently Taylor’s husband Russell abandoned her at a party and went home without her. It is difficult to know what is going on in Russell’s mind, whether he was just tired from working hard or if he just doesn’t support his wife. Russell is a very serious man and as Taylor confides in Kyle, Kyle tries to compare her husband to Taylor’s husband which really doesn’t help the situation.
All men are different and Kyle telling Taylor that her husband would never do that to her really just rubbed salt in the wound. I would have liked to see Kyle show a bit more empathy instead of just repeating how her husband would never do that to her. I don’t see how that is helping Taylor.
Real Housewives of Atlanta –
Atlanta’s previews show Kim preparing to go on tour and opens with Kim screaming for her assistant Sweetie. Sweetie is giving Kim her prescribed shot of B-12 designed to keep Kim’s energy up for her tour. Kim takes her shot like a 12-year old taking medicine and as her daughter’s come in and show a bit of concern about their mother being away for such a long time, Kim explains that her girls will be with her mother and will be just fine.
Kim tells her girls that she needs to go away to make a living which seems to appease her youngest daughter who walks out of the room without looking back. Brielle, however, bursts into tears as Kim seems shocked that her kid might actually miss her. “Are you really crying?” Kim asks her. Is this a normal mother’s reaction to her daughter’s distress?
The other Atlanta preview is even more disturbing particularly since we know that Cynthia and Peter do go through with their wedding. The couple invited an actor/relationship expert to their home to help with their differences prior to getting married. The fact that he is introduced as an “actor” would be my first concern but he certainly gets right to the heart of the couple’s problems as they start to discuss money issues.
We quickly learn that Cynthia has invested a substantial amount of her own money into her fiancé’s restaurant, Uptown. Cynthia looks at this as a loan that she expects to be paid back, Peter looks at it as an investment into the family’s business. This is a huge problem as so many couples fight about finances and even get divorced over money problems. I have to give Cynthia and Peter credit for bringing it up prior to the wedding and trying to overcome this problem.
Rumor has it Cynthia “donated” $25,000 to Uptown Restaurant to keep it afloat but unfortunately it did not work and Uptown is history. Some reports indicated that it had been shut down even before filming had ended and that actors were hired to pretend to be the staff of the club during scenes shot in the empty restaurant.
Real Housewives of DC –
Still no word on whether or not this series has been picked up for another season. No filming is taking place as of yet and as far as we know even the cast have not been notified. After speaking extensively with Rich Amons during my interview with him, I truly hope that this series is given another chance. I think that there is real potential with the DC Housewives, minus the Salahi’s who really did hijack the series. The number of people who seemed to boycott watching the show simply because of their presence hurt the ratings.
I understand why Bravo chose to air what they had filmed because if they had simply cut out all of the scenes with the Salahi’s or any mention of the Salahi’s, there would have been little left to air. In essence they would have had to re-shoot the entire season, causing a huge inconvenience to the rest of the cast. I realize that is not the main reason for their decision, clearly having the couple who made world-wide news by attending a White House function without an invitation seemed to be a bonus for Bravo, but in the end the ratings just didn’t come through for the network.
Love them or hate them, Lynda, Cat, Stacie and Mary created discussions, made people think and are probably some of the smartest housewives in Bravo’s lineup. Without Michaele and with the addition of a new face or two in DC, this could be a hit show. As interesting as the Housewives are, the DC franchise introduced us to some fascinating husbands as well, Jason, Rich and Ebong brought a lot to the series.
Watch What Happens Live – New Year’s Eve with Andy Cohen
Who will be watching this train wreck waiting to happen? Yes, Lisa Vanderpump’s dog Giggy is cute and all but Kim Zolciak singing? Why would Andy subject viewers to that? We’ve been loyal, we’ve supported Bravo and all of his nonsense, and I don’t think we don’t deserve that!
Tamra Barney will be joining Andy, unless she’s going to spill some interesting preview information about the upcoming season of The Real Housewives of Orange County, I have no desire to see her.
Bravo has posted this video of some Bravolebrities New Year’s Resolutions:
What are your plans for New Year’s Eve? Will you be watching Andy Cohen? Or Anderson Cooper with Kathy Griffin? Or will you be avoiding having to make such an important decision of what to watch and going out partying on the big night? Quiet dinner or a huge bash?
