I Hate Jill Zarin The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Lost Footage

I Hate Jill Zarin The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Lost Footage Feb 9, 2011

They could have left this footage “lost” as far as I’m concerned, what a disappointment! Considering the season was pretty good especially for a first season, unless Giggy the dog was your favorite housewife, this lost footage episode had little to offer.

There are better clips on Bravotv.com than they showed on the lost footage episode, where was the clip of Taylor being caught in a lie? Taylor told the world in several interviews that Adrienne Maloof was her daughter’s Godmother but at the reunion Adrienne kindly broke it to us that she was not Kennedy’s Godmother leaving Taylor swinging in the breeze and Adrienne clearly furious having been put in that position. THAT is what we want to see on the Lost Footage episode Bravo! Here it is if you haven’t seen it yet.

http://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-beverly-hills/season-1/videos/resigned-to-a-loveless-marriage

Almost half the show was devoted to Lisa Vanderpump’s dog Giggy. We saw the little guy getting a bath, and visiting the vet. We saw Lisa’s reaction to an email from the dog’s breeder telling Lisa that the dog should be put down because it was suffering. We heard Lisa’s interviews describing Giggy’s illness and medications that he was taking. I know that Andy Cohen was a huge fan of Giggy, but this was ridiculous.

With the exception of one clip, this was the most boring Lost Footage Episode ever!

Andy opened the lost footage episode by asking the question, Just how rich are these women? Camille Grammer described Beverly Hills residents as, “Rich beyond comprehension.” I’d like to take a shot at comprehending it. Adrienne Maloof explained that there is a pecking order in Beverly Hills, it is based on “the size of your home, the car that you drive and the toys that you play with.”

After seeing the size of Adrienne’s home, I’d say she’s pretty high up in the pecking order. The ladies all then tried to walk it back a bit and Lisa explained that she has to work and has bills to pay just like the rest of us, Camille tried to calm the critics of her four nannies. The Grammers are a busy couple and at times have to go out with little notice, having a nanny there makes it possible for them to live their busy lives. Camille even used Kelsey’s heart attack as an example of how convenient it is to have a nanny with them at all times, even when traveling.

We get it, you all have a ridiculous amount of money, talking about cutting back by traveling in commercial planes as opposed to flying private doesn’t make me feel for you.

I noticed that Taylor stayed out of the “How rich are the Gotrocks?” conversation but definitely chimed in when talking about plastic surgery. Andy went around the reunion couches asking each Housewife what work they’ve had done. Not one of them admitted to having a facelift, sorry don’t believe that. Kyle admitted to having her nose done, botox and fillers. Lisa admitted to botox and fillers as well. Taylor had lip implants, breast implants and botox. She later admitted to fillers when she remembered that they filmed Adrienne’s husband taking a syringe to her face.

Camille noted that she’s had lip implants but had them removed and of course her breast implants and botox. Kyle told Andy that no one would be interested in all of this plastic surgery stuff if they weren’t in Beverly Hills. Bzzzzzzz wrong again Kyle! Apparently she doesn’t watch the other housewives shows because it is featured in every franchise of the Housewives from New Jersey to Orange County. There is nothing special about Beverly Hills and Plastic Surgery!

There was a nice, albeit it dull scene with Camille Grammer and her friend DeDe on the beach in Hawaii, but again, there was another clip of these two ladies in Hawaii on Bravotv.com that would have fit right in, yet it wasn’t aired. DeDe has apparently had a rough year financially and Camille told the world on the show that she had helped her, given her a place to live (in one of her 17 houses) and a car to drive. Camille clearly took care of her friend in her time of need. The scene shown during the lost footage episode was sweet and showed the two friends crying and hugging with thanks from DeDe for all that Camille had done for her.

The scene that failed to appear on last night’s lost footage also discussed Camille helping her friend but included Camille referring to herself as “Jesus” due to her generosity.

http://www.bravotv.com/the-real-housewives-of-beverly-hills/season-1/videos/camilles-jesus-complex

I agree with Bravo, it was nice to see DeDe thanking Camille and the two ladies crying and hugging, a softer side of Camille but why not show both clips? We could have used less Giggy and more of the Housewives.

Bravo shared a clip that we’d already seen on the show, it wasn’t lost footage at all but aired during the season and made Kim Richards look like a bumbling idiot. It was an interview spot with Kim explaining an encounter with the paparazzi while she happened to be with her niece Paris Hilton. As Kim explained it, the press were giving Paris an education on her aunt’s popularity and Paris was objecting to her Aunt Kim getting more attention than she was getting. Kim’s storytelling skills leave a lot to be desired and the whole thing made Kim look petty and silly, for a second time.

During the season we saw the scene as Kyle Richards visits her psychic along with her mother’s ashes but the bonus footage includes Kim Richards joining Kyle but only bringing a photo of her mother. As Kim explains to the viewer that she is smarter than any psychic and doesn’t give her any clues or extra information, then we watch as Kim gives the psychic clues and extra information. Once again we hear that more people in Los Angeles have psychic’s than anywhere else in the world. Yet every other Housewives series have featured a psychic of one type or another. Kyle, you’re not as unique as you think you are.

A very long and dull scene included Kyle and her family visiting Lisa and Ken at their home and while the men played some tennis, the ladies prepared lunch. Lisa explains that she wishes she had had another child as she watches Kyle with her little one Portia and Kyle presents Lisa with a framed photograph of Portia in the pink dress that Lisa had given to Portia for her birthday.

Another dull scene meant to underscore that Adrienne cannot cook shows her preparing peanut butter and jelly sandwiches without any jelly and struggling to cut the crust off for her children.

We were given access to more footage of Camille and Kelsey attending the Tony Awards, very awkward discussions as Camille congratulates her husband, says she loves him and admits to missing him. Kelsey’s responses of “I understand” and “Thank you” are completely inappropriate for a husband to say to his wife as she pours her heart out to him and Kelsey’s look of panic was painful to watch. Knowing he was being filmed yet clearly not wanting to give Camille any false hope for the marriage, Kelsey looked like he would rather be having root canal surgery than sitting next to his wife having this uncomfortable conversation. The couple were relieved when finally joined by some friends to cut the tension.

The best scenes of the night took place at Kyle’s White Party. Watching Kyle struggle to get her 2-year old to sleep so that she could enjoy her party were actually pretty funny. The child fell asleep in her arms and as any mother will tell you, when you put the child into her crib she immediately looks like she’s had 3 cups of coffee and the eyes pop open as she starts to cry. Kyle rolling herself right into Portia’s crib next to her was hysterical, she looked like a frustrated caged animal as she lay there while her daughter is standing in the crib crying. That scene was worth the price of admission.

Note to Kyle, at next year’s White Party, why not hire a babysitter to care for the child during the evening portion of the party.

Kyle explained to viewers that she was an actress but quit to become a mother, she noted that she could always go back to acting anytime she wanted to but being a mother is more important. Kyle implied that each time she was rejected in some way (by a casting director maybe?) she would have a baby, fulfilling her in a whole different way. I think it is pretty presumptuous of Kyle to assume she could put the word out that she wants to act again and would immediately be accepted and handed a role. We watched as Kim, who was a much bigger star than Kyle, struggle to get acting work. Acting isn’t a typical career that one could just walk right back into after raising a family.

Even better though, at the same White Party, Kyle watches as a large blonde drunk woman draped herself around Kyle’s husband Maricio and began to whisper into his ear asking him if his wife “takes care of him”. Maricio looks perfectly happy with the attention but Kyle begins to try to rip this woman off of her husband screaming, “Get off of my husband”. It was really funny watching everyone around them witness Kyle freaking out, the blonde woman stumbling around knowing full well that if she had gotten off of Maricio there was a good chance she would fall down and right into the pool. Drunk people are funny!

I personally would have handled it completely different, I would have watched closely to see how that little scene played out and just how far this woman would go hitting on the birthday boy. More importantly, I’d like to see how the polite but happily married Maricio would handle the situation. I would have let it play out just a bit longer to see how it would turn out, Kyle interrupted the show just as it was getting good. How would you have handled that if you were Maricio’s wife?

Extremely disappointing lost footage episode Bravo, you could have simply put some of these clips of Giggy on your web site and included the better clips of Taylor’s lies and Camille’s Jesus complex on the show. Yes Andy, we all love Giggy, but comeon! There you have it, the lost footage.

Next week will feature Camille’s dinner party from hell with the evil Allison Dubois harassing the housewives. We’re told it was a four hour shoot and we’d only seen a small portion, most likely we’ve already seen the best portions but we’ll have to wait and see. Bravo did this with the table flip dinner party on The Real Housewives of New Jersey and we learned nothing new and saw nothing more exciting than we’d already seen, so I’m not expecting a whole lot from this show. Bravo will air the Dinner Party From Hell next Tuesday at 10pm/9pm Central Time.

A few tweets from last night:

@SonjaTMorgan: ! Ha Ha! Manolo in ur eye???
@SonjaTMorgan: TO: @KyleRichards18. OMG in 5 mins ur life my flashback. Getting the baby to sleep and then throwing women out trying to hit on my husband!

As some of you may know, Kelly Bensimon recently changed her Twitter name, creating a fiasco over a simple name change, Kelly started a whole new account for her new @KKBensimon name rather than just changing her old @Kikilet to the new name. Simon VanKempen helped her to fix the mess and last night she tweeted to him:

@kkbensimon TO @simonvankempen. You were right. These crazy cyber jerks are all over my old name

Kelly is responding to what we all knew would happen, another Twitter member snatched up her old name (@Kikilet) the minute Kelly abandoned it and has been tweeting using Kelly’s old name. The whole thing is hysterical and was unnecessary, had Kelly simply asked a question about the best way to change her name, none of this would have happened.

Note to Kelly: DUH!

Don’t miss the genius Real City Housewife’s latest offering that includes a brilliant montage of Taylor Armstrong and is more entertaining than the entire Lost Footage episode that Bravo aired last night.

Taylor Armstrong Is A Big Fat Liar: http://t.co/jQtwP6A

While you’re there, visit her “I love Jill Zarin” and “Taylor Armstrong BS Blog” both hysterical!

An update on Real Old Housewife who had been threatened with a lawsuit over some of her blogs and comments, you can read her response to the threat here:

Dear Ms. Granatell http://bit.ly/9kpLCC

I have to give Real Old Housewife a big “Bravo” here for her bravery, spunk and for sticking to her guns! Trying to pressure her into deleting entire blogs and the comments was concerning and I think many of us who host blogs were watching with fascination to see how this would play out. A cease and desist letter is nothing to take lightly but I admire that Real Old Housewife is refusing to cave to this horrible woman‘s demands.

I know I will be keeping an eye on this story and supporting Real Old Housewife in any way I can. I’m here for you!

You go girl!

    Really good summary Lynn. Don’t usually comment but always read your blog. Thanks for your efforts, it’s a lot of work.

    • twoile says:

      Tx Lynn 4 all ur time/genius/& generosityin sharing as well as highlighting ROH & RCH both excellent. Gr8!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. HD says:

    Glad to know I didn’t miss much. I watched a little, would flip, doze off, watch a little more. Boring stuff. I can’t wait to see the dinner as I found that highly interesting, primarily Allison whose weird faces take me over the edge.

    As for Kyle and the drunken dancer, I understand her. Her husband who is quite friendly, etc. should have done more but I don’t blame Kyle. I don’t come from the school of Camille where you kiss and hug and get all up on a woman’s husband.

    • Adgirl says:

      The drunk woman was hitting on Mauricio at Kyle’s own house! Who brought her to the party. That’s what I want to know!

    • TLM says:

      That drunk woman cracked me up. Somehow she had the coordination and thought process to be dancing with Mauricio to the music and whispering whatever the hell she said to him, yet once Kyle ripped her off of him, the woman looked like she was in suspended animation. I don’t even think her face moved. Then, it looked like she was going to hang on Kyle the way she did on Mauricio. She probably would have hung onto anyone there. Damn, where is Coerte when we need him? LOL.

      I kept thinking it would really have been hilarious if the woman hanging on Mauricio was the same one Alexis Bellino screamed at in Orange County. Like there’s an infamous husband-stealer running around at parties. Either that or Danielle would have been hilarious.

      In all seriousness, Kyle needs to look out for Camille big time. I really predict she’ll be throwing herself at Maurice hard-core.

      On another topic, I ran into this little hate-fest interview with Jill, Kelly and Luann that I never heard before. Presumably it was filmed after the season had ended, otherwise the references would have made no sense to the audience. So I guess all Jill’s talk about reconciling with Bethenny really was BS.

      • nathania says:

        Luann and Jill are so jealous they don’t know what to do with themselves but Jill seriously needs to shut up. I understood what Bethenny meant by the shower comment, Jill is misrepresenting what Bethenny meant I think. Because Luann is slimey, and she kind of oozes into the room, and she has that arrogance and condescension; she even breathes condescendingly. And she runs around causing trouble, kind of like Taylor, but then she pretends she didn’t do it, and is above that sort of thing (also like Taylor). And then when she gets pulled up short, she acts all put upon, like she can’t imagine she’d have to answer for her sh*tty behavior, which she never of course committed, because that sort of thing is far too pedestrian for her to be bothered with (ha!). And not only does she act completely innocent and verklempt that someone would accuse her of such a thing, she demands an apology from anyone who sees her for what she is and calls her on it. One more housewife that falls into the “betch, who you think you foolin?” category. I imagine if I had to spend any length of time around her at all I would need a shower, preferable with an industrial solvent to get the gobs of fakeness slime off of me too.

        Jill needs to figure out that she is so universally despised that at this point anything or anyone she trashes is usually worthy of attention.

        The three of them look so tragic sitting there, like rejects from an off-off-Broadway audition for “Charlies Angels, the retirement years” or something. They should all do themselves a favor and just shut up.

        It’s so interesting to me that on KKB’s Playboy cover they went to such great lengths to cover as much of her as possible. I have never seen the photos but it seems like it would be a tough job to make her body look sexy. She is very atypical for that magazine.

        • TLM says:

          The funny thing is that when Bethenny said she felt like she needed a bath, I felt the same way as I was watching that scene for the first time. I couldn’t put my finger on it, but I was somehow repulsed by Luann in a way I had not been previously.

          I was definitely incensed at the fact she canceled on Bethenny the day before and never said “I’m sorry” once, but just talked about how busy SHE was; that she told Bethenny she could meet for a drink, but only if if was near her house, and on the busiest travel weekend of the year; and then when Bethenny got there after driving 2 hours, she attacked her and started that whole passive-aggressive BS about who was going to pay for the drinks, when she stiffed Bethenny and left her to pay for surfing lessons for Luann and her kids the previous summer.

          Luann threw many subtle jabs at Bethenny, including professing to be an expert on dating and relationships when she knew her own marriage was in turmoil. She was jealous of Bethenny and that’s what prompted little remarks like, “Oh – I didn’t know you come to the shows” and telling her how to talk to men. Bethenny managed to get engaged three times; I think she knew how to engage men in conversation. Luann seemed to want to feel superior.

          At the reunion, Luann came clean to a degree about why she didn’t admit to her open marriage, because she wanted to protect her family. I actually am happy for her that she found a new guy, but I don’t think I’m really interested in knowing much more about it or watching her or them on camera. I still kind of think she is a dumb drag queen. 😉

      • suzyqtip says:

        Did they all get together and say “let’s wear our Wilma (“one shoulder strap”) dress ( or was it Betty???). B&RF!!!!! Follow each other much???????

  3. VincenzoNewYork says:

    Thanks Lynn for the recap.
    I was kind of bored last night while watching the show….I agree..Giggy is cute..but they needed to limit it to at most one minute!
    I really liked the funny scenes between the Richards sister..especially the Richards Latin scene…I wish that they had edited their relationship in a balanced way. We saw way to much nit-picking between the two..and it does portray and inaccurate depiction of their relationship.
    Camille was much more likeable/loveable to me last night…again..they could have edited her better to portray her accurately. I guess drama does sell in this type of business..
    Rusell seemed to be “nicer” at Martin’s dinner party…and both he and Taylor seemed happier than usual. I presume a troubled marriage with a cold and frigid husband also is a ratings magnet. Taylor’s face is absolutely hideous..especially with those wrinkles at her temples….she is very unattractive..and needs a natural look to her face…I wonder what will she look like in 10 years?
    In all of those scenes…Kim never seemed to be drunk! Including at Martin’s dinner party…it still shocks me that she has a drinking problem.
    I would have thrown that blonde in the pool! That would have taught her a lesson!!!

    Someone’s dog tweeted me yesterday stating that I write nasty things about her..and that the dog nips. I replied to the unamed dog and stated that I actually support her..and I still like her alot. If I said anything nasty, it was due to the fact that I was blocked for no apparent reason. I also started posting on this blog probably a week after that incident…therefore, my behavior did not warrant such severe action to be taken.
    Regardless I still like her and I will always support her, and give her the benefit of the doubt. I believe in the miracle of the human soul..and that we are born to learn lessons. She has so much potential to help others..and I sincerely feel that she has a good heart..she just needs to overcome certain aspects of her childhood, which I had previously analyzed..nevertheless, I hope that there will be a reconciliation between us.
    ttyl everyone!

    • Katie says:

      “Regardless I still like her and I will always support her, and give her the benefit of the doubt.”

      Yuck! Really? Good luck with that.

    • quincyil says:

      Wow, our Vinney caught the attention of a dog from Manhattan!

      I think my cats talk to me too. They want food.

    • Brigid A. says:

      Vinny, re the rude doggie tweet you received last night, how ironic that it was directed at the very person, YOU, who are consistently kind and understanding about a certain NY housewife. I don’t tweet, so can people who block you still tweet you? You mentioned being blocked by Jill, so I find last night’s communication curious.

      • VincenzoNewYork says:

        I can tweet to her real twitter, but her feed won’t appear on my twitter. I guess blocking is not as powerful as it is on Facebook. I follow her dog..so the dog re-tweeted me. I told her that I miss her and ❤ her..so I never understood what the reason for such an action was needed. My twitter name is very similar to my name here..anything is possible. Why can't someone follow both her and this blog at the same time?? There is freedom of speech and press in this country…for the most part…and I reserve the right to read whatever I please. This blog is based on all of the Bravo Shows…therefore I participate in the convervations that I deem are appropriate for me to engage in.

        Teresa blocked me, but that was due to the fact that I called her many names in Italian after how she treated Danielle and Andy at the reunion!

        • Katie says:

          V –

          But doesn’t this tell you something about Jill?

          I mean I give you credit for being so nice, I just think she’s evil, paranoid, and taking things with Lynn’s blog too far.

          Like Kim G if Jill can find a way to hurt Lynn’s site she would.

          • VincenzoNewYork says:

            Ty Katie,

            I also think Kim G is an awful woman for trying to sue RHOMC…there is freedom of speech people!! People are taking defamation too far in this country! If you put yourself out there…then take it!!! How dare she try to research someone and try to find her home address. KIM G-You have given a bad name to the ladies of Franklin Lakes. Get a life…You’re neither important nor special…Get some counseling!! Shame on you for inflicting harm on an innocent lady!!! You are despicable and beyond disgraceful!

            I really think Lynn is a respectable blogger..and the people here are also very respectable. There is a friendly tone here…and alot of people here try to find some respite from illnesses and such as it was mentioned in the letter to her. This blog is a good service to people. I can blog all day at work and stay in touch with cyber world.

            • Katie says:

              Well whenever NY HW is back I look forward to your comments and feel free to point out if you think I’m being too mean towards your buddy Jill. I tend to be pretty straight forward, not a lot of grey when it comes to things with the HW’s. Friend -Foe -Or Boring

              • VincenzoNewYork says:

                aww, but you are entitled to what you think of her lol. We all react differently to people and I take no offense to people’s comments in regards to her. I do like her/love her..but it’s not like she’s my mother or best friend.

        • lillybee says:

          I am sure those names were well deserved.

      • quincyil says:

        True. I read Vinney’s twitter and he consistently petitions Jill Zarin to allow him to twitter with her. He really was a wonderful host for the “I Love Jill Zarin” blog because he knows NYC and is a wonderful person.

        I don’t know why a dog would do this to someone who really wants to be Jill Zarin’s fan.

    • Melinda says:

      Actually, I think the Richards sisters were speaking “ubbie dubbie”…..which is from a show that was geared to young people in the 70’s 😉

      • overaggression says:

        Yes, yes, yes! Now I remember! Trying to recall why that sounded familiar has been driving me crazy. They did it on the show called “Zoom.”

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      Hello my handsome devil-

      How very interesting that a certain someone’s dog is tweeting you. I am becoming fascinated by her reactions. Or I’m getting cabin fever.

      She is behaving like a jilted (Jill-ted?) lover.

      She longs to reach out to you, but is so very very angry at you for “cheating” on her via this blog. Quite interesting.

      Well, if nothing else- the woman is passionate. Then again, sometimes crimes are committed in the name of passion. It’s not quite…normal.

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        oh- I want to know Italian swear words! I know some- but when I use them in the North End- the old Italian men laugh and say I’m cute. So I don’t think they’re very naughty.

        • VincenzoNewYork says:

          OneMoreInBoston: It’s not a win win for Jill and I. So, if I am blocked forever..it’s not an issue. My goal is to move foward from today! I hope..

      Vincenzo…I love your comments as you always seem to say in a very intelligent way what I am thinking. I also enjoy your reading your analysis of the women, makes alot of sense to me and is very interesting. please don’t stop commenting just because a few people disagree with you…seems like the PC police are always trying to stop anyone who has an opinion about someone…what is wrong with us just trying to escape our reality once in awhile???

      • VincenzoNewYork says:

        Thank You Tegan. However, I don’t think people have said anything negative to me. It’s a very supportive blog.
        Thanks again.

        • VincenzoNewYork says:

          and if they do…I read it and see if I can change my viewpoint. Thank you again for looking out for me. I appreciate it.

          • Kimberly says:

            Vincenzo,

            Don’t feel bad… She also blocked me for following Lynn on twitter even though I have never said a bad word about in her public. So immature!

        • tegan says:

          Vincenzo – I agree that this is a supportive blog and I love that. I was really referring to the dog -twitter issue you have and I should have made that clear in my message to you 😉

          • VincenzoNewYork says:

            @Tegan: Oh okay.. Thank you for the clarification. Suprisingly, the dog has not blocked me yet…lol. Oh well.

    Lynn – Loved the recap and agree on how boring the lost footage episode was. I can’t believe they don’t have more to show us. But now maybe I can get my life back and stop watching and commenting so much. This site is addictive!

  5. klmh says:

    The question you pose about how we would handle a situation with a drunk lady making advances to our husbands should bring a lot of different responses and I can’t wait to read them.
    If a situation arose like this with my husband, he would have distanced himself diplomatically from the situation if possible. If not, he would have taken care of it with a bit more firmness, but always in a nice way. Best for me not to get involved because I have a bit of a temper, and I trust him. Im a lucky lady.

    • Katie says:

      I agree with your take and how your husband would take care of the situation is how IMO it should be handled.

      Doesn’t mean I wouldn’t be upset, but taking out the garbage is typically a chore I feel a man should take care of.

    • Kat says:

      I’d offer cab fare.

  6. missmi says:

    Spot on Lynn! Why is the dog getting all this TV time and Taylors lies are buried in videos on the website. I also agree with Vincenzo that it was nice to see the Richards sisters laughing and talking in code. I realized last night that was very rare in the series. Kyle even seemed irritated while at the psychic with Kim

    • Margo says:

      Exactly. She seemed to roll her eyes as though she was suffering through another one of Kim’s misadventures, when she too made a separate trip to the same psychic for herself, or for Bravo, who knows. But, the constant burden theme is so tiresome from Kyle. She really should stop hanging around her sister so much, especially the things where her death bed promise/services aren’t essential.

    Heidi Montag to join ‘Real Housewives’?
    Feb. 8, 2011, 7:56 PM EST
    MSN Entertainment

    Ready to learn even more about Heidi Montag’s personal cosmetic struggles?

    Well, according to RadarOnline, her husband Spencer Pratt says they are in talks to join “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.”

    “We would move to Beverly Hills in a heartbeat. We would be psyched if this happened for us,” Pratt reportedly told the site.

    Honestly, it’s not that shocking to us, given that Bravo has courted the spotlight-obsessed likes of Michaele Salahi and Camille Grammer.

    And can’t you totally see Montag comparing surgery scars with the rest of the “Beverly Hills” cast?

    • NYCer says:

      That wouldn’t be true- that’s just their way of selling a story and getting PR. Andy Cohen is on record of not wanting to even mention their names because he doesn’t like them and doesn’t want to feed the pr monster.

    • humbruh says:

      I saw where someone on Twitter asked Andy if Heidi was being considered for the cast & his response was “Hell No”. Thank God for small miracles.

      I think Mauricio is so diplomatic that he has trouble being even a little negative. It’s the salesperson in him.

  10. WindyCityWondering says:

    As Bravo puts more and more housewives franchises in the pipeline the quality of the shows is coming into question for me. Each franchise is unique, yet now there is violence and personal issues being thrown in where is clearly doesn’t belong. Yes, Atlanta and NJ are the brawling franchises, but is it really necessary in the others? BH brought plastic surgery into the spotlight – guessing we are going to see a lot more of that in Miami…..yawn.
    As for lost footage – it isn’t lost, it doesn’t show us anything more than we have already seen and it doesn’t answer the questions viewers want answered! If Bravo prides itself on monitoring blogs, etc – then they dropped the ball. Now we get the producer’s cut of the Malibu melee – bet Bravo is kicking itself that it didn’t do one for NY Scary Island – oh the horror of all that lost sponsor revenue!!!

    Another thought – Bravo’s blogs are a joke (we all know we can’t get our comments posted) so why doesn’t Bravo tap into the gold mine of blogs like this one? Why not a panel of bloggers submitting the questions their posters really want asked? And don’t stop there – let these blogs become focus groups for new shows – these are viewers who are invested in their programs! So instead of lost footage Bravo can do an inquiring minds want to know type show!

  11. Melinda says:

    Yea….it was a bit of a snooze-fest wasn’t it?! I did love Kyle getting into the crib….that is something EVERY mom knows is real! I think I would have let Mauricio sweat it out a bit with this woman and see if he would show me that he is trustworthy. I mean, come on Kyle….let your husband prove that he is a happily married man. her reaction was a bit over the top and sort of screamed “INSECURE” to me (that dreaded word!!LOL).

    It was painful to watch Kelsey and Camille at the Tony afterparty……she was trying hard to get him to give her a glimmer of hope and he knew the cameras were rolling and wasn’t going to do that. ugh….

    funny part of DeDe and Camille’s little heartfelt chat on the beach was when they were walking away and DeDe said that she was “high” …..obviously someone does some drugs 😉

      Fking hysterical. There should be an award for whomever jumped on this opportunity. I wonder if KKB is following this. She must be having another breakthru.

  13. I thought the lost footage episode was pretty good, with the exception of the Giggy segment. I am looking forward to next week’s episode, “The Dinner Party From Hell”.

    Leave it to Kelly to turn a simple task into a complicated one. She couldn’t figure out how to change her Twitter name on her existing account so she opens up a new one. Now someone has her old Twitter name(@kikilet) and she is threatening to report them. She doesn’t have a leg to stand on because once you give up your Twitter name, it is available for anyone to use. She should get her Twitter account verified but it will take her about 10 years to figure out how to do that.

    Kelly’s tweet to the new @kikilet:

    kkbensimon @kikilet I am reporting you to Twitter for using my name kellybensimon. Thank you

  14. NYCer says:

    I saw a few things differently, but of course it was late (I watched the second showing) and I only watched once:
    -I didn’t think Taylor admitted to breast implants when they were all discussing plastic surgeries–I thought Andy said besides your lips… and she immediately started talking about fillers that didn’t work on her. I was going to slam her for not fessing up to implants, but I guess I missed it?
    -I didn’t think Mauricio was enjoying that drunk lady’s attention. To me, he looked like he knew she was drunk/crazy, and I thought he was signaling to his daughter and then grabbed his daughter as she came closer to him to “save” him, right before Kyle jumped in.
    -I thought the first part of Camille’s beach scene was so freakin’ phony. As her friend thanked her, she wasn’t saying “you are welcome” –she was saying “that’s me, I’m so generous.” Then, as they walked away far away from the cameras, the audio caught a more genuine moment when they cried and hugged. I have really started to like Camille–but I think it is from her interviews and from the reunion show. I think during the series she was really trying to “act” or manufacture moments to show herself in a good light, and it backfired. Is she coming back next season? I imagine she’ll be much more likeable, now that she’s learning to be real on camera.

    xo Lynn, love your blog as usual. Can I just say how much I am looking forward to Jimmy Fallon on Top Chef tonight? He will make the post-Tre transition easier. (ps: Go Carla, Tiffany and Fabio!!)

    • LynnNChicago says:

      YES! I agree, can’t wait for tonight’s Top Chef! Really loving this season!

      You might be right about what you saw on the show last night, I’d need to watch it again. (re: Maricio and Taylor)

      As far as Camille, I think you’re absolutely right, she wanted that aired and she set up the conversation but as they walked away from the cameras it was a true conversation, including the part about DeDe being “High”. lol

    • Adgirl says:

      I wonder if Jimmy will write some of his Thank you notes to the chefs. LOL.

    • TT in OC says:

      1. I saw the same “looking for help” look in Mauricio’s eyes last night. In fact, his eyes were filled with the S.O.S. sign.

      2. This was what happened in the morning when they shot the beach scene.

      Camille: DeDe, since you and your husband are free-loading at one of my seventeen mansions, you need to announce to the world how generous and wonderful and Jesus-like I am.

      DeDe: What do you want me to do?

      Camille: I will write a script and all you have to do is to say the lines in front of the camera so Bravo can air this.

      DeDe: But I am not a very good actress, I never did soft-porn before.

      Camille: Fine, I will get you something something to get into the mood. Just make sure you thank me repeatedly, and cry. Tears always help and since I am dead inside (per RCH), I can’t cry. So you have to do the crying. Now, where the hell is my house manager, I need to get DeDe something.

      • nathania says:

        I think it was Lawson that said that during the scene where DD was letting Camille cry on her shoulder during the “Kelsey cheated” whine session, DD was like “I’ll just give you a few seconds of a teary-eyed look of sympathy and you can run it on a loop for however long you need for the scene” or something.

        I think there is a lot more (and less) to this marriage than is being stated. I am guessing that they are swingers, Camille and Kelsey, and DD and her husband are involved, and probably Nick and his wife too. I just don’t get any feeling of commitment or monogamy from this set up, their whole existence has more of a ‘hookers and blow’ sleaze effect to it.

        • humbruh says:

          OMG Nathania! I have been saying the same thing & my friends have disagreed with me! I have been saying almost from the beginning that Kelsey & Camille’s marriage was BS. I truly believe they are either swingers or they had an agreement that they could have their side pieces. Camille never expected Kelsey to fall in love with one of his jump offs. Her feelings are hurt, not because her husband broke her heart, but because a monkey wrench has been thrown in her hustle.

          Camille might end up with $40 mil but losing the “Kelsey’s Wife” badge will make her as insignificant as she has feared. At the end of the day, relevancy is what matters most to that woman.

  15. Brigid A. says:

    Last night’s BH lost footage episode was a total waste of time. Seriously, Andy thinks the viewers wanted to see half an episode devoted to Giggy? And Lisa’s boring “empty nest” syndrome? Lisa should just step down for next season. Without Cedric, she has no storyline except for all her money and her dog. She is a meddling, manipulative woman. Her lovey-dovey relationship with Kyle and Kyle’s kids is also extremely boring.

    Kyle: where to begin? No offense to anyone here who may frequent psychics, but this is just not entertaining. It’s disturbing. Notice Kyle cannot resist any opportunity to get her digs in at Kim, even visiting their psychic. What a hypocrite. She mocks Kim’s murdered fiance discussion with the psychic hinting that Kim shouldn’t be interested in men on “the other side” or whatever her bitchy remark was. Yet Kyle morbidly totes her mother’s remains to this woman. Anyone think Kyle may also have had a few discussions with the psychic about whether Mauricio is faithful?

    Kyle also wants us to know for the gazillionth time she is a devoted mother. She apparently can’t let another family member or babysitter look after Portia the night she hosts the White Party/Maury’s b-day party. Really, Kyle? Farrah couldn’t help out, for example? And others here may disagree, but if I couldn’t trust my b/f or husband around other women, I would not be with him. Maury can fight his own battles and he didn’t seem too eager to undrape this woman and kick her out of the party, drunk or not. Kyle did it for him, and I’m guessing it’s not the first time. Mauricio thought it was funny. Yet again, this scene ends with her talking head reminding us of their happy marriage and what a good couple they make. Alrighty, Kyle, whatever you say.

    The footage of Kim seemed a setup to make her look once again like a bumbling moron. Andy clearly loves the jokes on Kim. Also, did anyone else notice Kyle policing her sister at Mohammed’s party? This time, not just to monitor her drinking, but to spy on her conversations with random men. More arrogant, bitchy remarks from Kyle and Taylor, the two mean girls who love nothing more than to put Kim down.

    Taylor? She got a free pass last night. Is there an upcoming part two of lost footage? DId I miss the godmother clip? Airport conversation between Taylor and Kim? I’m sure Bravo has lots of Taylor material.

    And finally, Andy’s obsession with plastic surgery. He’s asked each of these women time and again to dish on their procedures.

    Overall, nothing new and not even worth watching.

    • Katie says:

      Yep I agree.

    • nathania says:

      yep you are right on all counts. The more footage I see about Kyle the less I like her. And right on about her policing Kim. She is so jealous of Kim it’s disgusting. Kim is too naive, even at this stage in life, to see that Kyle’s behavior is abnormal. Probably because big Kathy was the same way. Kim has always looked afraid, in all her roles in the stills she has a fearful look in her eyes.

      Kyle positively made me want to vomit with saying that she acted for a while and “decided” to go off and have a family. Um, no. She got pregnant very young and at most had to ‘quit’ but I don’t think she was acting very much at all. Ditto on her statement that “I can go back to it at any time.” In what universe, Kyle?
      Ever heard of the film “Searching for Debra Winger”?

      And that is Debra freaking Winger, not a bit part player languishing in her sister’s shadow. I think it’s starting to make sense why Camille and Kyle don’t get along, for Kyle to make these statements repeatedely, about her career, about her mother, about her father being successful and Kim not supporting her etc, which are all easily debunked by google, shows me she lives in a world of delusion that is far thicker than the one Camille got stuck in last season.

      I wish Bravo would stop protecting Kyle, and stop trashing Kim Richards and setting her up. I have to wonder how Bravo’s ratings did with the Salahi’s on DC and if their ratings went down because of including obvious scammers and I’m wondering if maybe they don’t want to give Taylor airtime if it turns out that she too is a grifter, they probably just want to get rid of her as quickly as possible.

  16. VincenzoNewYork says:

    @Brigid A: I do love Lisa..but she may not be as fascinating as she was on this season without Cedrique…I was like..enough with the dog..yes it is sad to see a dog suffer, but it nearly put me to sleep. Interesting view on Kyle’s digs. I thought Kyle was being funny. Oh well. Clearly, Bravo and Andy have something against Kim..and I guess at that moment in time at the Reunion taping..Kim didn’t have the country backing her yet. I really do feel that they exploited Kim and her relationship with Kyle. I wish they showed us funnier moments betweeen the sisters. Comedy garners ratings as well..it does not have to be table flipping and rage!!
    I wonder if there is more to Adrienne then we saw? The pecking order comment was like the old Camille…on the show she seems humble..but is she really? I wonder sometimes with these shows..

    • NormaJean says:

      @vinny, I think Adrienne’s pecking order comment is where Bravo editing comes in to play. The women answer questions that production staff ask them for the talking head interviews. Bravo asks Adrienne how the social status pecking order is determined in BH. Bravo asks Camille what’s the difference between you and Kelsey and Kyle and Mauricio in the BH pecking order. It’s the same type of question asked 2 different ways both designed to make the person look bad.

      • VincenzoNewYork says:

        @Norma Jean: Good point. I never thought of it that way. I need to learn the dynamics of how these shows are produced, sequenced, and edited.
        These shows lack authenticity..they really do. Reality television is far from real, due to the fact that comments are distorted and it alters what is percieved. These editors need to use their brains when putting together a show. At the end, I look at these people as characters in a book, or in a scripted show, and it is unfortunate that we cannot learn about these women in a manner that is authentic and the truth!
        Welcome Back!! You are wise and full of insights!

        • klmh says:

          The truth for me is, we can see ourselves in these ladies at a given time. It makes us more aware of our actions and reactions and I have learned from them. It has been an enlightening experience to see how others view the same event differently than me, and I hope I can keep remembering to see more than one side to anyone or anything again.

          • VincenzoNewYork says:

            @Klmh!! I do the same thing. Essentially, we may behave similarly to these ladies. Some of us have not developed that awareness to discern that yet.

            • klmh says:

              Its what makes the world go round, isn’t it? I find I have a bit more tolerance though in my everyday life because of this blog, especially with a crazy sister! She’s not really crazy, I just can’t come up with a word to describe her at the moment. 🙂

  17. Kelly says RHONY will be “more real” without Bethenny. She said the past two seasons were “unauthentic”. I don’t know why the person who wrote the article left “unauthentic” in. LOL
    ****************************************************************************

    Could Bethenny’s absence actually improve ratings? Kelly thinks the change has wonders for the show!

    Kelly Bensimon isn’t worried about Bravo pushing back the premiere date of The Real Housewives of New York City to March. In fact, she thinks fans are going to love this new season even more because the drama and relationships are more real… now that Bethenny Frankel has left the cast!

    “There was the Bethenny character that flew in and out and made all this drama,” Kelly tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “It’s a totally different season [now] — totally different show.”

    “People think that without Bethenny, ‘Is the show going to be able to last?,’” Kelly says. “It was so unauthentic for the past two seasons. The great thing about this season is that, because the relationships are now three to four years old, the actual situations are organic. They are deep and they hurt.”

    Still, Kelly won’t admit she’s happy Bethenny is gone. “I would never say that I’m glad,” she says. “She was a cast mate on the show and they chose her. Now she’s gone and the show is taking a completely different direction, which is really exciting.”

    And Kelly doesn’t think fans will be let down this season, despite critics suggesting it might be boring. She assures us there will be plenty of drama! “It’s drama that you have — drama that I have with my friends,” she explains. “It’s going to attract so many more viewers because it has depth. It’s not topical drama. I’m making memories [and] there are some very painful moments for me.”

    Kelly’s Real Housewives co-star Ramona Singer completely agrees that fans shouldn’t worry about a lack of entertainment this season:

    “This will be the best season ever and will be everything but boring,” Ramona assures us. “The viewers will be in such anticipation for it to be on and so will I. The trip to Morocco has it all — great events, tears and laughter!”

    • nathania says:

      so KKB comes apart on a beautiful tropical island next to a pool with a chef so they are sending her into into the freaking desert to ride a gd camel and I am supposed to want to watch that, after they had to put security next to her castmates’ doors at night because she can’t handle staying at a virgin islands resort? you have got to be kidding me. I have to be honest, I’m really not interested in watching NY. I had thought sure Jill was going to leave, which would have made it bearable. At this point, I just don’t care. Especially since they are sending Larry, Moe, and Scary out to do the publicity for this season. Ick.

  18. Amber...RealWife says:

    BRAVO editors pay too much attention to Andy’s fascinations. Sure many like Giggy, but none are as obsessed as Andy. To devote a segment on a dog with alopecia, mistress inflicted atrophy, and a killer seamstress/stylist was too much! Much like BenWeiner, this crazy fixation of Andy’s takes over the program and it becomes boring and frustrates the viewers. We want to see footage and gossip about the housewives, not Giggy’s vet animatedly ignoring the breeders suggestion on euthanizing his meal ticket! LOL The vet almost had a heart attack when he heard crazylady mention death as a cure for what ails Giggy.

    As for Kyle and the Amazon, i’d say she handled it as best she could. This woman was completely out of line. Mauricio could have untangled himself a little sooner if you ask me. Was this a potential client and he was understanding of her inebriated state? Who knows. But I know Kyle is like a chihuahua that doesn’t know her size, or was she so ballsy because she had security to “escort” the drunk woman out? If it’s all talk and no action then Kyle can hang with the best, however in a battle I think a sober Amazon could have taken a rabid Kyle anyday! I think Kyle does very well with her streetish threats in BeverlyHills as those ladies are probably scared to break a nail. They only talk threateningly to the servants, not aggresively to each other asking for a physical confrontation. If Kyle would have tried those antics, anywhere outside her city limits, say LA, Miami, Dallas, Atlanta, Brooklyn or Patterson…she would’ve been wearing her balls for earrings! LOL

    Finally, if RealHusband allowed some woman, drunk or not, to disrespect me in my own home, he’ll get it too! LMAO It is his job to keep me from “catching a case” (jail), and if that means he pulls her off and walks away…he better walk quick!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Part of Mauricio’s problem is he doesn’t like being impolite. He seemed to try to get his daughter to bail him out and he was trying to turn away from the Amazonian cougar. Where Kyle is loud, I am Adrienne small and quiet – I would have let my love of hockey kick in and that cat would have found herself hip checked into the pool…..know that!

      • Amber...RealWife says:

        I think Adrienne and Paul would get a kick out of a drunk flirting woman. Paul is the jealous one in that relationship.

        Now, how impolite is impolite? If Mauricio were showing a home to a lovely cougar, drunk after a liquid lunch, who strips and propositions him, would he say YES because it would be impolite to refuse a lady/client? Or if he says NO, I’m married and love my wife is that considered impolite or a forceful way of saying NO THANKS!? Does he accept the offer and keep the client or does he respect his vows and possibly lose a sale?

        I know the above didn’t happen, hope not for Kyle’s sake, but my point is using the “I didn’t want to be rude” or “the person is drunk” is a bit of a cop out. Did Kyle overreact? Maybe. But interestingly enough, she was correct in assuming the woman was coming on to her husband, in her home, in front of family and friends, per Mauricio.

        Now while I originally thought Kyle was just super jealous, is it possible that Mauricio, like CosmoKramer, has the curse of Kavorka, making him irresistable to women? LOL Or is Maurico just a good looking guy that looks at ladies and they think they have a chance?

        • Brigid A. says:

          Amber, loving your thoughts on this! Here’s my take on it: Call me old-fashioned, but I cannot imagine creating a scene, losing my dignity, at any party I hosted or attended. Even with some random (who was she, invited or not?) drunk woman molesting my husband. My trust would be with him, not her. In my view, Kyle lowered herself, as she always does, to a woman who loves a fight. It bears repeating in this Jersey Shore/HW culture, I would NOT engage in a catfight with any woman. The guys sit back and laugh!!!

          Mauricio could have pulled away from this woman with no problem. He is not disabled or out of shape, or (according to Kyle) out of love with her. Au contraire! He’s a hunk! If he’s the man Kyle thinks he is, sit back and laugh with him.

          • California35 says:

            I like your take.

            I have not seen that part of last night’s episode, but I have seen the comercial and the coments about it here. I wouldn’t have acted like Kyle on that situation, but then again I wouldn’t act like here on many of the situations 😛

            The men should be able to get ride of the situation on his own, specially in the was the lady was like on top of him lol. He could have said, “excuse me” that would have been polite (going by the theory that he wants to be polite).

          • nathania says:

    I loved the Adrienne can’t make a peanut butter sandwich scene. That was the first time I got to see Paul dish it out to Adrienne and she totally cracked up.

    Before, Bravo only showed us Paul and his squeeky shoes, Paul has a broken nose (again), Paul orders food strangely …

    • NormaJean says:

      I loved that scene! I wish we had seen more of that Paul and Adrienne during the season.

    • nathania says:

      I loved that scene as well. Poor Bravo, they don’t know what on earth to leave in and what to leave out. Why can’t they allow these characters to be human? I was really in stitches watching Paul laugh at Adrienne’s ‘fingermarks’ on the bread and watching Adrienne laugh at herself. It was such a cute scene, really light and good-natured, and showed a glimpse of the true chemistry in their marriage. Same with the pig-latin scene with Kyle and Kim, now THAT is a real sister relationship quirk, although as usual per Kyle it was gross and tacky that Kyle felt she had to announce on camera to Kim that the man was married.

      • nathania says:

            but they are into jelly.

            That part is still cracking me up, where Paul picks up the sandwiches and goes “where’s the jelly”, and apparently up to that point Adrienne hadn’t noticed there was no jelly on her peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

            All told though, I’d be serving my kids the best most expensive whole grain breads with some organic hydrogenated oil-free peanut butter that cost 10 dollars at a health food store, not this processed crap. Unless that was just a big product placement bit…which wouldn’t surprise me because it doesn’t make much sense in the context of the show otherwise.

    And the gloves are off. Who will win the ratings battle between The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills versus The Real Housewives of New York City this season? Duh. Beverly Hills of course. I have never been a big fan or watcher of the New York housewives because — well — who cares about these run-of-the-mill ladies who lunch? Or in the case of Bethany Frankel, liquid lunch. The Beverly Hills broads live an aspirational, opulent lifestyle whereas the New York ladies are a bunch of yentas, living seemingly above their means or worse — Brooklyn. Needless to say, the Beverly Hills broads are elegant, whereas Ramona Singer looks koo-koo for Cocoa-Puffs. Andy Cohen and Bravo TV have a challenge on their hands, which is why they are delaying the start of the next season of The Real Housewives of New York City, as per Page Six. When you compare New York to Beverly Hills, you will come up short, because these New Yorkers are petty and not all that fabulous. Take Jill Zarin — please. Her apartment was drek-orated and borders on tacky while her day job is a schmatta peddler on the Lower East Side. What is this, Yentl Par Deux? The continuing saga of Yentl and Avigdor’s life in New York City after the pogroms in Russia, where they live happily ever after on the LES, open a fabric store (hence schmatta) and give birth to Bobby Zarin, who takes a wife from the Five Towns of Long Island? Oy. And what’s with Alex McCord and husband Simon van Kempen? They go to the opening of an envelope whereas none of the Beverly Hills folks went anywhere they were not hosting. Except maybe the Tony Awards. Kelly Killoren Bensimon is a piece of work and an exhibitionist, causing her daughter to overeat — as does Jill’s kid. Did you see how stunning Kyle Richards’ daughters are? Let’s not go there in terms of a beauty contests anyway, cause it will show you how superficial I really am. Every Housewife on Bravo does Juvederm and Botox, but the West Coast women have the best wardrobes and shoes for days. Please…take me to the Hills of Beverly–swimming pools, movie stars. Visit Abe’s blog I MEAN…WHAT?!?  

    • error404 says:

      Usually I love the Huff, but this one was kinda weird and snobby.

      A lot of things may be Jill’s fault, but Bravo’s inability to attract “real” NYC socialites isn’t one of them. Nor is it Alex’s.

      And am I really the only one getting increasingly nervous about the canonization of perfect Kyle’s perfect marriage and perfect family? Perfect perfect perfect. How many times do we have to be told? The more I’m told, the more nervous I get about how bad the truth is going to be once it gets out. Nobody’s perfect, not even Kyle.

      • quincyil says:

        Actually. Jill Zarin was on the Social Register and was attending charity events long before the show. I have a friend who is brilliant and she researched this. Look at their apartments and their Hampton Homes. These women are wealthy. You can’t pay the taxes and life in those areas if you are not wealthy. Everything is relative. Yes, the Maloof have more money than the Zarins, but that does not put you on a higher social level. I respect college professors and teachers. They do not have Jill Zarin’s money, but they contribute to society in ways that Jill Zarin would never be able to contribute. I respect nurses and waitresses. I respect the people who help me in stores. I think the real housewives in general have issues with class and levels in society that I am very glad I do not have. To me, it’s how you treat others and what you do to help others that makes you the better person. Money is nice, but it doesn’t define you. If it does define and it is lost, you do not exist.

    From the nydailynews:

    ———————————————

    Oops, they did it again.

    Infamous White House party crashers Tareq and Michaele Salahi went where they didn’t belong at Sunday’s Super Bowl: the owners’ suite.

    “Super Bowl XLV rocks,” Michaele tweeted from inside the ultra-exclusive enclave.

    Offering up proof of their locale, the tweet was accompanied with a picture of the Salahis with “Jerry Jr and friends.”

    “Jerry Jr” refers to Jerry Jones Jr., the Dallas Cowboys’ vice president and the son of team owner Jerry Jones.

    Michaele insisted to TMZ.com that she and her husband “were guests and stayed in the Owners Club Suites the entire time and had so much fun meeting new friends.”

    Except they weren’t “guests.” And they didn’t stay “the entire time.”

    It was quite the opposite, the Cowboys’ director of client services told RadarOnline.com Tuesday.

    “Not invited,” Brett Daniels said of the couple. “[They] were immediately, but discreetly, escorted out of the suite by security.”

    • LynnNChicago says:

      I think they’re just playing a game, trying to see how many places that they can sneak into without being caught, or even if they are caught, like the owners box at the Super Bowl, they can still say they were there. Its all just a game.

    • nathania says:

      Also busted bigger than anything by this video: Bravo.

      I want Bravo to explain to us WHY this footage was buried on the website, since this is some of the best footage, if not THE best, of the season, why was it not even shown in the ‘lost footage’ segment. Maybe we should all write Andy Cohen and ask him, I’m sure there is a contact link on the website. I am sure there are at least a few hundred viewers and probably way more that might be curious as to why Bravo is protecting Taylor Armstrong while at the same time doing it’s level best to trash Kim Richards. Same scenario with NJ, supporting the wholesale destruction of Danielle Staub while tolerating psychotic behavior from Teresa Guidice and her husband, who’ve turned out to be grifters to the tune of eleven million dollars. What gives, Bravo?

  40. PJ says:

    The lost footage left me thinking that Kyle is an even bigger control freak than I thought she was. The blond hanging on her husband, if ever there was a time to let your man be a man that was it. Mauricio should have handled it himself.

    Klye tries to control Kim too. It was like she was stalking Kim at the party, ready to pounce on Kim at any given moment. What is Kyle twelve that she feels the need to speak a secret language to Kim in front of people? It was very telling that Kim had no idea who Pandora’s boyfriend was. Just shows you how much Kyle really hangs out with Kim and her friends together. No wonder Kim was reluctant to get involved with the Kyle v Camille fight.

    It seems to me that the reason Kyle sees Kim as a burden is that Kyle spends so much energy trying to control Kim. If Kyle would stop worrying about Kim embarrassing her in front of her friends and just let Kim alone they would have a better relationship. Kim actually seems like a fun and nice person but Kyle drains the fun out of every situation where Kim is having a nice time.

    I think the lost footage also showed me that editing does have a part to play in the perception that the viewers have of people. Camille for instance. The footage of her and her friend as they got away from the cameras was real and touching. It’s obvious that Camille cares very much for DeDe and is a true friend. Camille is very generous with DeDe.

    Sure Camille may have a problem editing herself but she came off as kind of sweet to me. I think it’s a shame the viewers didn’t get a chance to see this side of Camille all season. Camille also has had the same best friend for a really long time so obviously they were best friends before Camille met and married Kelsey. When they became best friends money must not have played a part in their being friends. But they have stayed loyal to one another so there must be something good in Camille to keep a best friend for all of those years.

    Kelsey did not come off very well to me. I thought his treatment of Camille was heartbreaking, yet never once did we see Camille treat him in any other way than kind. It’s really a shame that the other woman doesn’t look at how a man treats his wife because if she paid attention then she would realize that she is looking at what her own future will most likely be when he gets tired of her and the next other woman comes into the picture. A cheater is a cheater and I think that it’s a shame that many have given Kelsey a pass for this behavior just because they don’t like Camille or because Kelsey is famous.

    • NormaJean says:

      I so agree with you. A man who will cheat with you will cheat on you. It made me sad too that women said that Camille deserved what Kelsey did. He publicly humiliated the mother of his children for a woman young enough to be his daughter. Even if he wanted out of the marriage, he should have waited to get involved with this person until after filming was completed.

    • Brigid A. says:

      PJ, agree with a lot. The post-award bar scenes of K and Camille were hard to watch. I even kind of felt that Camille really didn’t see it coming? Can you say awkward? Also, seems Kelsey deliberately avoided any parties after the ceremony. Where the heck were they? That brightly lit “cafeteria” type place, begging (paid) friends to join them at their miserable table? Ugh. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I felt for Camille.

    • VincenzoNewYork says:

      It also comes from Polish too..I remember my Polish friend from high school calling this other kid an Italian rag-polska schmatta!
      It most likely came from Polish and it was incorporated into Yiddish.

    The “I Love Jill Zarin” blog on the prairie by quincyil

    Jill Zarin is a good friend. Kelly Bensimon had a problem with her twitter account.
    She lost it. She lost all of her fans. Jill announced Kelly’s new address to the Planet Earth. An enterprising young soul swept up Kelly’s old name and began to tweet as if Kelly had lost her mind. Jill helped Kelly by trying to get all of the fans to switch over to Kelly’s new site. It’s going to take a while, but Jill shared with her fans and many thousands are moving to join Kelly at this very moment. Perhaps, this evening Kelly will have over one hundred thousand fans like Jill.

    Jill Zarin is generous. She buys diamonds for all of her cast mates.

    http://www.realitytea.com/2011/02/09/jill-zarin-buys-diamonds-for-real-housewives-of-nyc-cast-responsible-for-camille-rumor/

    The cast mates loved the diamonds and they were so thankful that they all called realitytea.com to tell the owners of the blog that Jill Zarin gave them diamonds. Since this is a charity, some of the money Jill Zarin paid will go to help needy individuals helping to provide clean drinking water. Ignore the article. Jill Zarin is charitable.

    Jill Zarin loves the arts. Jill is promoting Allison Zarin’s photography exhibit in NYC. Jill tells us that this is an incredible exhibit and asks all 100,000 of her twitter fans to retweet the news of the exhibit into cyberspace. Jill Zarin tells us that Allison wants to make it on her own.

    Jill Zarin went to lunch, but she absolutely refused to tell us what she is eating on twitter. I have been waiting for a food tweet for weeks. Ever since I began to follow Jill Zarin’s tweets and mentioned how much we all look forward to her food choices, she stopped sharing. I suspect that Jill Zarin will never tweet what she eats again. Someone must have told her that we were waiting for her to mention it so she refuses to share with her 100,000 fans and those who have to google her twitter every day.

    I’m know I’m late to the party on this but I think Kyle, and all women for that matter, only come off as insecure and shrewish when screeching at a woman whom they perceive to be a threat. It was Mauricio’s place to nicely tell that woman he was happily married and NO THANKS to whatever she was offering up.

    BTW I thought “that woman” was actually a man in drag or a transexual….way too tall even for a “model”.

    • klmh says:

      I thought the same this about the “tall one”.

    • nathania says:

      men get off on it though. I used to watch that show elimidate when I couldn’t sleep, and the women always ended up fighting over the guy, and trying to out do each other, and the guys all seemed to secretly like it. very strange. and they usually ended up going after and choosing the loudest, tackiest girl that was the most aggressive in fighting for them. It blew my mind every time to watch them eliminate quiet, polite girls that seemed to have class to go after women who could have been cage fighters in their spare time, apparently. I think they think it means the women will be that way in bed.

      I bet it turns Mauricio on. Ick, I just remembered what Teresa said about she and Joe Guidice the night that she flipped the table: “we really got it on”. Kyle is like the Beverly Hills Teresa, lol.

    It looks like there is a consensus that the Lost Footage episode was boring. I was disappointed to have wasted an hour of my life on that. I like my cute little dog fixes in small doses like the ones I get from Boo on Facebook.

    What I did find intriguing was another puzzling revelation. During the second reunion episode, Kyle claimed full responsibility for sharing the questionable Camille photos. Correct me if I am wrong on this. Camille wasn’t sure whether it was Kyle or Faye and didn’t seem to care who started it, though. Kyle insisted that she had the photos in an e-mail on her BBerry.

    Well, the preview for the next episode (Final? Please!) does not fit with her claim. It appears that Faye introduces the photos and Kyle is seeing them for the first time.

    I can understand a grown woman claiming responsibility for the behavior of another when it really matters- maybe to protect a child. I don’t think it is necessary in this instance as I think Faye can handle the responsibility. What that leaves me is a question as to how much I can believe any other bold, loud claims Kyle might make.

    If Kelly gets Chris kicked off @kikilet twitter will Jill be able to get @GingerZarin kicked off too?

  49. Sparkles says:

    Guess what? Last night I arrived late to Vincenzo’s party in they NY brownstone. It seems like you had all gone. But many of the HWs read about the party and showed up!

    First I saw Michale Salami and Taylor. They asked where the celebrity grift suite was so they could get some freebies. Lisa V. pointed to a door and told them to open it. They did, but it was a bathroom and Cedric was on the toilet! Lisa was cracking up, but Cedric was mad. He said he hadn’t been that angry since a fight last year at his family reunion.

    Next NeNe burst open the front door, with her best friend in tow. NeNe started yelling that the IHJZ folks are a bunch of haters, and then she pulled her luggage to the master suite and said she was staying there for the night!

    Next I heard a commotion near the front door. It was Jill, who got out of a limo with the Countess and her boyfriend! Jill complained there was no “step and repeat,” whatever that is, so they all piled back in the limo. As they were driving away, I could hear Jill asking the Countess’ boyfriend if he could introduce her to Jennifer Aniston.

    Taylor came out on the sidewalk, forlornly holding a piece of cake and posing for photos.

    Then a cab pulled up. It was Lynn Curtain and Sheree! There was some scuffle over not enough cab fare, and the driver pulled away without letting them out!

    Alex and Simon could only stay for a few minutes due to the kids, but they said to be sure to tell reporters they were there.

    Camille only stayed a few minutes too. She felt claustrophobic. And Slade was hitting on her!

    Some HWs sent their regrets. Vicki was working. Bethenny had to work too, but she sent coupons for Skinny Girl margaritas and said to be sure to tune in to her show on the 28th. Phaedra said she had to stay home with her baby, who she reckons to be about nine or ten months old at this stage. Kim Z. couldn’t didn’t come because she doesn’t drink during the second trimester. Alexis didn’t come because she thought too many women would hit on her husband.

    Anyway, just as the party was ending, at about 3 a.m., Kelly showed up! She was wearing a tutu and said “Nobody puts baby in the corner.”

    It was exciting!

      Oh, it seems like I missed a good time! I had to leave early because of the time zone difference.

      Sparkles, I keep seeing your name on Bravo at the bottom of the screen. You got some deal with Andy? 😀

      Vince is the best host on the planet Earth. His food was fantastic and every one had a wonderful time. New Yorkers really know how to have fun!

      • Sparkles says:

        Absolutely! Oh, I forgot to mention that Kyle sent her regrets as well. Another nanny left in the middle of the night so she had to stay home with the kids.

        • Golden Girl says:

          Lol Sparkels! I lmao at the part where Sheree and
          Lynn C showed up in a cab but didn’t have enough cab fair so he drove them off.

    • VincenzoNewYork says:

      @ Sparkles: Thank You all for attending the party! It was fantastic!!! I am very exhausted from the evening festivities!

  50. klmh says:

    This seems to be a slow night here, so for your entertainment, I am going to share some of my most fav airline quotes. (Hope Im not duplicating myself, but if so, enjoy them again. These are fab.)

    
Airline Announcements? 


United Flight Attendant announced, ‘People, people we’re not picking out furniture here, find a seat and get in it! 

***

    My personal favorite:

    


An airline pilot wrote that on this particular flight he had hammered his ship into the runway really hard.  The airline had a policy which required the first officer to stand at the door while the passengers exited, smile, and give them a ‘Thanks for flying our airline.’  He said that, in light of his bad landing, he had a hard time looking the passengers in the eye, thinking that someone would have a smart comment.  Finally everyone had gotten off except for a little old lady walking with a cane.   

She said, ‘Sir, do you mind if I ask you a question?’ 

’Why, no, Ma’am,’ said the pilot. ‘What is it?’ 

The little old lady said, ‘Did we land, or were we shot down?’ 

***

    

As the plane landed and was coming to a stop at Ronald Reagan, a lone voice came over the loudspeaker: ‘Whoa, big fella,  WHOA!’ 

**

    

After a particularly rough landing during thunderstorms in Memphis, a flight attendant on a Northwest flight announced, ‘Please take care when opening the overhead compartments because sure as hell everything has shifted after a landing like that.’ 

*

    

Another flight attendant’s comment on a less than perfect landing:  ‘We ask you to please remain seated as Captain Kangaroo bounces us to the terminal.’ 

**

    

Overheard on an American Airlines flight into Amarillo, Texas on a particularly windy and bumpy day:  During the final approach, the Captain was really having to fight it.  After an extremely hard landing, the Flight Attendant said, ‘Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to Amarillo  …  Please remain in your seats with your seat belts fastened while the Captain taxis what’s left of our airplane to the gate!’ 

*

    

’Your seat cushions can be used for flotation; and, in the event of an emergency water landing, please paddle to shore and take them with our compliments.’ 

*

    

’As you exit the plane, make sure to gather all of your belongings.  Anything left behind will be distributed evenly among the flight attendants.  Please do not leave children or spouses….. …except for that gentleman over there.’ 

**

    

Heard on Southwest Airlines just after a very hard landing in Salt Lake City .  The flight attendant came on the intercom and said, ‘That was quite a bump, and I know what y’all are thinking.  I’m here to tell you it wasn’t the airline’s fault, it wasn’t the pilot’s fault, it wasn’t the flight attendant’s fault, it was the asphalt.’ 

**

    

After a real crusher of a landing in Phoenix, the attendant came on with, ‘Ladies and Gentlemen, please remain in your seats until Capt. Crash and the Crew have brought the aircraft to a screeching halt against the gate.  And, once the tire smoke has cleared and the warning bells are silenced, we’ll open the door and you can pick your way through the wreckage to the terminal.’ 

* *

    

Part of a flight attendant’s arrival announcement: ‘We’d like to thank you folks for flying with us today.  And, the next time you get the insane urge to go blasting through the skies in a pressurized metal tube, we hope you’ll think of US Airways..’ 

*

    * 

Heard on a Southwest Airline flight – ‘Ladies and gentlemen, if you wish to smoke, the smoking section on this airplane is on the wing and if you can light ’em, you can smoke ’em.’ 

** 



    A plane was taking off from Kennedy Airport .  After it reached a comfortable cruising altitude, the captain made an announcement over the intercom; ‘Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking.  Welcome to Flight Number 293, nonstop from New York to Los Angeles.  The weather ahead is good and, therefore, we should have a smooth and uneventful flight.  Now sit back and relax…. OH, MY GOD!’  Silence followed, and after a few minutes, the captain came back on the intercom and said, ‘Ladies and Gentlemen, I am so sorry if I scared you earlier. While I was talking to you, the flight attendant accidentally spilled a cup of hot coffee in my lap.  You should see the front of my pants!’ 

A passenger in Coach yelled, ‘That’s nothing.  You should see the back of mine!’

    After Jill Zarin, Taylor has to be the most homely woman ever, she’s scary looking.
    She looks like she was in a bad car accident and the doctors “did their best” on her.
    .
    Kyle acted like a loon last night. She made a fool of herself, just like she did in the limo. I think there’s more behind her & Maurico’s marriage than we know. We’ll find out sooner or later!

    Happy Belated B-Day Bridget! Hope it was a good day!

    Team Lynnnchicago! I too was dissatisfied with the lost footage show. Lame. I was wondering though if that drunk tranny woman hitting on Mauricio could possibly be Kelly Bensimon in a blonde wig? They have a similar physique.

    • quincyil says:

      The economy fell apart. A lot of the people in the real estate industry have been hit hard. They were making a lot of money in the 90s. He probably has no skills other than his smile.

        I couldn’t remember what he did. So he was in real estate? Yep, that explains it. His lifestyle has took a drastic turn. I always love to watch these shows from the past knowing what I know now.

        I wonder how hmmm what is her name…that woman that worked with Vicki…I wonder how her husband is doing financially…

        • quincyil says:

          Laurie Peterson. Her husband was wealthy, but I don’t know what he did for a living. Simon Barney sold expensive cars and was fired when Tamara was on OC. There were gossip articles that claimed the wife of the owner of the car dealership had problems with Tamar’s comments on the show. He tried to sell Tequila, but I think that business failed.

          It good times, it’s easy to make a lot of money, but people don’t remember to save for a rainy day. What good is a fancy watch if you can’t pay your mortgage?

    Chelsea Handler smashed Patti Stranger last night. It wasn’t a big smash but a smash none the less. First the eye roll then the face and snarl. It was about matching her with George Lopez. Then she blasted her for not being able to fix herself up with a guy.

    Eye On: The Real Housewives of Atlanta breaks Bravo records
    The Real Housewives of Atlanta just came to its season three finale and left Bravo in a state of shock. Housewives of Atlanta broke viewership records for Bravo, something no other Housewives has done in Bravo history.

    On Jan. 30, Housewives averaged 4.4 million total viewers, making it the most-watched episode in the history of the Housewives franchise. These housewives, Sheree Whitfield, Kim Zolciak, Linnethia “Nene” Leakes, Kandi Burruss, Phaedra Parks and Cynthia Bailey have surely been the viewers’ favorites, even when weighed against the longest running The Real Housewives of Orange County.

    Compared to the other Housewives on Bravo, Housewives of Atlanta’s unprecedented issues leave many questions unresolved, leaving viewers wanting more. Viewers are anxious to see the love-hate relationship of Nene and Kim unfold weekly — not to mention celebrated attorney Phaedra and her crumbling marriage. Viewers are on the edge of their seats waiting for the next season. What will the Housewives of Atlanta be up to next?
    from: Inside Beat

    • HD says:

      Bam!

      Why did they say Phaedra’s crumbling marriage. Her marriage is fine. They must have meant Nene.

      • error404 says:

        time will tell.

        we’ve seen how many of these “aspirational” women be truly broke behind all of the smoke and mirrors, so I wouldn’t at all be surprised to find Phaedra, Teressa and Kyle all headed for divorce court. Wasn’t Vicki solidly married until a surprise divorce?

        didn’t P&A “have to get married”? He’s much younger and doesn’t seem to share any of her interests or hobbies.

        • HD says:

          Vicki never seemed solidly married to me. Did you see how she talked about and treated Don? What show did you watch? lol

  64. Kellita says:

    Good morning! It’s -10 in Chicago-area currently. Oy vey! A bit chilly.

    I finally have more than a few seconds to post. I agree with the consensus that The (Supposed) Lost Footage was basically lame with Giggy being the star of the show.

    I’ll just add that I have to agree with how Kyle handled the drunken woman hitting on her husband. I’d be pretty ticked off if someone crashed my party and was all over my husband. I’d trust him to get her off and handle it, but I’d want to rip the chick a new one for her horrible behavior of acting like that at my own party in front of all the guests and my kids. I think generally that Kyle absolutely has anger issues and is quick to fly off the handle. But in this instance, I don’t blame her at all.

    On the other hand, it disturbs me how much she zings Kim. I think there have been very few scenes on the whole season when she wasn’t giving an underhanded insult to her sweet sister. Kyle definitely has issues.

    Have a great day everyone, and, if you live anywhere near me, keep warm!!

  65. boston02127 says:

    Gotta go & do & do & do & do. I’d luv to stay home and curl up & do nothing today.
