I Hate Jill Zarin The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Jan 7, 2010
Lisa Lisa Lisa, it’s no fun to be in the middle between your husband and anybody in the world, let alone Cedric, who you clearly adore and enjoy his company. Last night’s episode revealed Cedric’s background and explains why he is living with Lisa and Ken Vanderpump.
It seemed a bit set up having Kyle insist on being told the story at a birthday dinner, in the middle of dinner as the cameras rolled. Kyle just had to know, Cedric promised to tell her someday and there you have it, dinner conversation.
Cedric’s story is like an afterschool special, his mother was a prostitute, got beat up by her husband and she lived with Cedric on the streets of Paris before abandoning him at a phone booth. Fifteen years ago, the Vanderpumps took him in and give him a place to live. There was some question as to whether or not this sensational story was true or not, for my purposes, if Lisa believes him, I believe him. If she ever questioned it, she certainly has the money to put a private investigator on it and so either she’s done that and confirmed it, or she hasn’t and is going on blind faith, either way it’s good enough for me.
The friction between Lisa and her husband isn’t going to go away until Cedric does, I’m a little confused as to why Cedric doesn’t feel the tension and straighten up a bit. He’s not always going to do what the Vanderpumps what him to do without being told, like a child, it seems as though he needs to be given some house rules and even some chores. Make him responsible for gassing up the cars and feeding the dogs, cutting the dead roses off of the bushes. Then, when he’s done with his chores, he can play with Lisa.
Camille decides it would be a good idea to invite a few of the girls and their families over for a Tennis Tournament. There is no explanation why she chose Kyle and Adrienne and left out Taylor, Kim and Lisa with their families but I think I can guess why she included Kyle. Camille is a cunning woman and she had sent that text message basically firing Kyle’s husband Mauricio as their realtor. Now Camille has the upper hand and the couple will now have to kiss her ass to get Marico his gig back. I didn’t see one olive branch, what I saw was Camille wanting attention and seeing just how far Kyle will go to bend over backwards to be kind to the scheming Camille.
One question for Bravo, why do we have to watch this woman making phone calls to invite people to her parties every time? Do they really need the filler nonsense because they don’t have enough footage of the Beverly Hills Housewives? Remember, Camille does 30% more than most housewives, there must be more interesting film to air, right?
Camille proved she doesn’t care who is watching, she’s going to plant a big wet one on her “friend” Nick, even while he’s wearing a weird wig and his wife Tricia is looking on. Kyle interviewed that if Camille did that to her husband, she wouldn’t have any lips left, but no worries, Camille didn’t kiss Mauricio on the lips but she did hug him at least three times.
Adrienne and Paul attended the tennis tournament at Camille’s and we learned that poor Paul had his nose broken by their 4-year old son for a second time, this time it was a head-butt to the nose. I think Paul needs to wear one of those helmets with a face guard around the house, they do say the home is where most accidents happen.
After tennis was a little pool time and as the kids had a blast swimming, Mauricio and Paul suited up to join them but Kyle and Adrienne chose to sit and watch. Camille was sure to put on her skimpiest bikini and join the men and kids in the pool. Once again Camille decides that Adrienne and Kyle must be jealous of her so they chose to sit out of the pool, “Female Jealousy” said Camille taunts Kyle threatening to throw her into the pool. Rather than allowing Camille to have the satisfaction, Kyle jumps into the pool fully clothed. Poor Adrienne ended up in the pool fully clothed as well but not by jumping in, she was pushed in by her husband.
Kyle and her husband Marico hosted a party at their home, they called it their annual White Party and it also celebrated Marico’s 40th birthday. With the guests all instructed to dress in white, and all of the housewives invited, any bloodshed would be easily evident. They should have invited Adrienne’s 4 year old son. This is my kind of party! The yard looked beautiful with tents, added lighting, an extensive bar and dance floor included a DJ and live bands. No offence to Taylor’s Roaring 20’s party, but this one looked like a whole lot more fun!
Kim showed up with her children and quickly was told that Martin, her blind date from a few weeks back would be attending the party. She seemed to really like Martin, in fact she said that they hit it off but that he never called her. I guess he’s just not that into you Kim. Sort of like the series struggled to find ways to get Kim some screen time, since there is nothing there to air, Martin struggled to find something interesting there, but found nothing.
Everyone looked really great, the ladies were all well put together and looked stunning. Kyle had on her green earrings that she wears all the time, they must mean something to her because I think I’ve seen those green earrings on her at least a dozen times.
Camille arrives apparently sick with bronchitis so she didn’t stay long but she was kind enough to bring a gift to not only the birthday boy, Mauricio but she brought a gift for Kyle, a book titled “How To Behave”. Really Camille? That has to be the rudest thing I’ve seen in a while, Camille said it was meant to be a joke, maybe she needs to look up the term “joke” because typically jokes are funny. I have to agree with Lisa, I definitely think that Camille should read the book first.
The rest of the evening was about Taylor and her husband Russell. Russell wasn’t engaging with the other party guests and didn’t crack a smile all night while Taylor was enjoying herself and laughing with friends. Russell complained that the party will most likely go on until 3am, while most people would agree that is a good thing, Russell just wanted to go home. I was glad that Taylor didn’t give in to him and leave but rather than staying with his wife, Russell chose to take the car and driver and leave Taylor behind. I have to wonder if Russell changed over the course of the marriage or if he had always been like this.
Taylor wants her husband to be more like Kyle’s husband, have fun and enjoy his time with his wife. If Russell had never been that way and she married him just the way he is, she’s going to be disappointed for the rest of her life. People just don’t change. I doubt that Russell was a party animal and danced all night when Taylor met him, he is who he is and Taylor will have to learn to live with that or leave him. Taylor keeps saying that her marriage is more of a business arrangement but we never see Taylor working, so how exactly does she contribute to his business? Regardless, this is her life and she has to stop looking at other people’s husbands hoping her husband will turn into someone he’s not.
Next week on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills we will catch a glimpse of Kelsey Grammer as Camille travels to New York to join him at the Tony Awards. The previews also show Camille explaining that Kelsey tells her he wants to end their marriage. It should be an interesting episode.
In other Housewives News:
After Bethenny’s appearance on Watch What Happens Live last night, Jill Zarin tweeted to Andy Cohen:
@JillZarin to: @bravoandy I want you to know I did call B 7 days after the reunion like I said I would. I waited for her to call me back. She never did.
Jill Zarin, to join the dozens of people who responded to your tweet here, first of all, Andy doesn’t care. But let me add just how “High School” your tweet sounded and that you need to get a life as well as that Hobby that Bethenny suggested.
Maybe there was a very good reason Bethenny didn’t return your call, wait, I think I remember something on last season …there was a show and a bat shit crazy woman … there was a whole lot of “We’re done!” being said and calling cast mates telling them not to film with Bethenny, …if I recall there was Bethenny finally stating, “I don’t want anything to do with Jill”.
Maybe you missed all that, or your horrible memory has failed again so hopefully all those tweets you got in response to your moronic tweet will remind you that Bethenny doesn’t want any toxicity in her life, particularly with her baby girl.
Complete blog on Bethenny’s appearance on Watch What Happens Live tomorrow right here at IHJZ!
Until Next Time…..
