I Hate Jill Zarin The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills January 14, 2010
Kelsey Grammer is not as smart as I thought he was. If the order of events are true on the show, Kelsey called his wife just a few weeks before the Tony Awards and told her that he wanted to end their marriage.
Step two, Kelsey, in order to get her to come to the Tony Awards with you so that no questions are asked about the marital status, you tell Camille that the two of you could have a romantic weekend and possibly resurrect the marriage. Your wife arrives in New York only to find that she’s not welcome in your New York home, the one that she decorated, planned on moving into (although it was way too small) and includes a bedroom for her children. WTF was this man thinking?
Kelsey, for future reference, those big events like the Tony Awards include press and so if you want to put on a show that you’ve still got a happy marriage, don’t ask your wife for a divorce BEFORE the Tony’s, wait those few days or weeks until after the Tony’s and then you can introduce your wife to your mistress and let the chips fall where they may. Oh and make sure you get a pre-nuptial agreement with the new girlfriend. You moron!
Wow are you stooooped! Enjoy living on HALF of what you’ve been living on before…
I was a bit confused at the opening lunch as Lisa tells viewers that Kyle was her friend first and Taylor seems to be butting in, it was surprising to hear Lisa talk that way, it’s a bit high school and very beneath her. The three ladies seem to be having a lovely lunch together until Lisa brings up Taylor’s marital problems and wants to have a serious discussion about it. Was Lisa feeling left out because Taylor only confided in Kyle? Clearly Taylor’s not interested in this topic of discussion at this time and makes a joke out of it. Lisa is getting irritated at Taylor’s flippant attitude and takes leave with the excuse that her husband is waiting for her.
Kyle is preparing for her daughter’s college graduation, Farah who is 21 years old makes mom so proud that she buys her a diamond ring for her accomplishment. We also meet Farah’s dad who attends the festivities. The Hilton family announce that they won’t be there as they have European commitments that are obviously more important but they do call Farah on her big day and send her a big plant and even bigger check. If all else fails, pay them off, I guess that is the Hilton way.
Earlier we witness Kim doing an interview with Radio Disney and announcing that she is interested in returning to acting now that her children are grown. She might have had a shot at it before The Real Housewives gig but I would think that now, any producer who might have been interested in casting her would run for the hills.
Kim was very supportive of Kyle during her daughter’s graduation festivities, its easy to be there during the fun and exciting things, but Kim seems to fall apart any other time. Kim also seems to want to ensure that everyone knows how upset Kyle was when sister Kathy announced she wouldn’t be attending the graduation.
Adrienne shopping with Paul for some clothes was like a comic sketch, the constant bickering and disagreements about which outfits they each liked was like an Abbott and Costello bit. Highlighted by the interview Paul gives saying he knows exactly what his wife’s tastes are and he could pick out her clothes then pooh-poohs every outfit she chooses.
Later at the graduation party, Adrienne and Paul corner Maricio’s mother who happens to be a clinical psychologist and basically asks her to work during the party. Having never met this couple and knowing little about them, I don’t see how she would be able to diagnosis the problem so quickly but it seemed as though they simply told her that they’ve been married for eight years and bicker a lot.
Rather than Paul inviting the good Psychologist to his office for plastic surgery, she should have given this couple her business card and told them to make an appointment.
Lisa and Ken are still at odds over what to do about their adult houseguest who will never leave. Ken called it expertly when he said that Cedric goes behind his back to Lisa whenever Ken asks him to move out of the house. Cedric plays on Lisa’s emotions and I can see how hard it is for her to be strong and insist that Cedric leave after what he’d been through. He really lays it on thick in this episode saying that no one loves him and that he doesn’t deserve love even that he, at 7-years old must have pushed his mother away. You could almost see Lisa’s heart breaking for him all over again and of course she’s not going to kick him out of the house after that speech.
It’s tough to know if Cedric is on the up and up or if he’s scamming this amazing couple, their big hearts are overshadowing the entire scenario and I don’t think Cedric is ever going to leave this couple’s home until he’s good and ready. The cycle keeps going round and round as Ken asks Cedric to leave, Cedric pours his heart out to Lisa and Lisa overrides her husband’s demands. In the end Cedric stays.
Lisa’s reasoning for not wanting Ken to get eye surgery was hysterical, she claims that the timing was perfect, as she’s falling apart her husband’s eyes were getting bad. Now he wants to fix his eyes and she is worried? No need to worry Lisa, you are no where near “falling apart” but it is sweet that after all those years of marriage Lisa still thinks that way, this couple clearly love each other so much!
As we watch the Grammer’s prepare for the Tony Awards you can feel how awkward things are right through the screen. Kelsey arrives at Camille’s suite while obviously his mistress has taken over the couple’s New York apartment and Camille asks for Kelsey’s suggestion on which dress to wear. If ever a man didn’t give a damn what a woman was wearing, this was it! He put in his two cents about the rain ruining the long gown with the train but when Camille offers to try both dresses on for Kelsey, he snorts an uncomfortable laugh and tells her it doesn’t matter.
The Grammer’s share a toast with friends before climbing into the limo and as they all toast to “love” and “friendship”, Camille adds her own toast to “Marriage” and gives her husband the look, you know the look…everyone knows the look. The look on Camille, however, is ghastly and evil as it includes that sick little grin of hers. Even Kelsey looked a bit frightened, as though the look said to him, “Half, I’m taking half!”
As expected Bravo’s camera’s weren’t allowed at the Tony Awards but it would be the last public appearance together that Camille would make with her husband of 13-years. I feel for the children.
Did Camille gain any public sympathy after last night’s episode? Will she get more next week? What about her appearance on Watch What Happens Live last night, did anyone change their mind about Camille Grammer?
Next week we see Camille in tears and apparently questioning her friend DeDe about how “that woman” could break up a home. Why do the women always put the blame on the other woman? Kelsey is the married man who cheated on his wife, lets put the blame where it belongs.
Reading Taylor’s blog this morning, there seems to be a bit of tension over the lunch with Lisa and Kyle. Lisa’s comments apparently didn’t sit well with Taylor. You can read her blog here:
