I Hate Jill Zarin Bravo’s New Year’s Eve Party / Housewives New Year’s Messages January 2, 2011
Andy Cohen held his first New Year’s Eve broadcast complete with a countdown and rather than a ball drop, he had a wig drop in honor of Kim Zolciak and her wig. Kim sang Tardy For The Party which had to be the lowest point of the evening.
The fun began with Jeff Lewis and his sidekick Jenny who are always entertaining. There were housewives represented from every city except DC, Mary Amons even tweeted asking Andy why the DC housewives weren’t represented at his party, but he never responded, another bad sign for DC. which sort of gives us a hint of Bravo’s decision, it isn’t looking good for the DC franchise to return.
Andy rarely ignores tweets from his housewives.
Jenny also sang a song, another rap diddy about Bravo’s many offerings, unfortunately it was difficult to catch most of the lyrics but I’m sure would have been funny, if we could hear it.
There were a few fun moments, but more embarrassing and dull moments than anything else, the worst of which had to be the ridiculous wedding ceremony between Lisa Vanderpumps’ dog Giggy and Dina Manzo’s hideous cat, Grandma Wrinkles. That was 10 minutes I’ll never get back.
Do you suppose Andy purposely invited Housewives who weren’t all that fond of each other? Or did he send out the “let’s all be mean to Kim Zolciak” memo with the invitation?
Lisa got along with everyone but it’s no secret that NeNe and Kim aren’t getting along. Tamra clearly doesn’t like Kim, but she was a drunkin fool so who knows if she even knew what she was doing. Her fake attempt to yank Kim’s wig off was only funny to her and NeNe.
Jimmy Fallon did his impression of Neil Young singing Tardy For The Party, and Jeff Lewis made a snarky comment about lip syncing that Kim took offense to, then toward the end of the show apparently Kim got a wig full of silly string and since she was the only sober one there, didn’t find that the least bit funny. Apparently her $2,000 wig was ruined and once the cameras stopped rolling she got even by throwing her drink on Jeff Lewis, here is Jeff’s tweet:
JL_Jeff_Lewis: Still recovering from NYE. WWHL camera didn’t catch @KimZolciak throwing her drink on me after my off color comment. I probably deserved it.
Just before sign off Andy asked NeNe what she thought of Kim’s performance, NeNe’s response, “Happy New Year!” was polite and a jab all at the same time.
Tamra was sure to be front and center on screen for her make out session with her newest squeeze, boyfriend Eddie Judge then made sure that she set her sights on Andy Cohen. Maybe she didn’t get the memo that Andy’s gay, and her boss because he tried to give her the polite peck and she went in for the kill, even looking like she was trying to slip him the tongue, later she was pressing up against another gay man, Jeff Lewis. I think Tamra was trying to get herself naked wasted.
Ellen Barkin, Sarah Jessica Parker and the 13-year old Housewives fan, Ben Weiner all called into the show but it was a bit disappointing to read a tweet from Tabatha Coffey who said she tried to call in and couldn’t get through. But they were sure to put Ben Weiner’s call right through. Ridiculous!
The stupid games and idiotic Mazel awards were just filler material that was a complete waste of time except the only one that mattered, the final Mazel of the Year was presented to Betty White, who of course was not there and didn’t even send in one of those pre-recorded video acceptance speeches.
Dina Manzo was there with her creepy cat and her newly adopted dog who unfortunately lost its two front paws, Dina was, as always, a dull guest.
I think the majority of the group there were trashed but probably none more than Jeff Lewis, I can’t decide if he’s really mean or if he’s just trying to create a mean persona for television as he shot the pregnant woman with silly string, threw Andy’s homeless doll and called Andy the “gayest man on television”, is that an insult? Andy threw the same title back at Jeff Lewis as if neither one of them wanted to own that.
No reports at this point of Kim getting caught smoking a cigarette or drinking any alcoholic beverages so either she’s behaving or she’s hiding it a whole lot better.
Here are some of the Tweets about the evening’s festivities and New Year in general:
