I Hate Jill Zarin Million Dollar Listing – blog by Quincy IL

Great job with the blog again this week Quincy, I thought the new Josh was a bit more of a likable character this week, seeing him with his mom and giving up his commission for an elderly client, he may just be one of the good guys after all. Here’s Quincy’s recap:

Million Dollar Listing Week Two by Quincy IL

There are no guarantees in the real estate game.

We return to the Encino mansion of last week with Josh Flagg to have a private showing with a woman who is soon to be married to money. She loves the house. There are large “her and her closets.” The house is 10,000 sq ft with a beautiful 4,000 guest house near the pool. She will let her fiancé decide on the offer as the money is his.

Josh Altman meets Judi Altman, his mother and his brother who is also in real estate. Judi is in fashion and his father who is in Aspen is a doctor. The phone rings, but his mom will not let him answer. She talks about nothing while he is waiting to respond to the call, then his mom drops the bomb shell. She wants Josh A to sell a condo in a high rise on Wilshire Boulevard with no commission. The apartment belongs to an older woman who is the mother of Judi’s friend in Boston. This will be a mitzvah, good deed.
Josh argues, but agrees. He knows his mother.

Madison is going into his office in Malibu after his morning workout. His assistant has a message from a foreign businessman who is staying at the Houdini mansion which is in the Hollywood Hills. Josh adds that this is odd as there are so many nice hotels. The mansion has two acres of land. Josh goes there to meet Imir, a businessman. (This is the name listed on the show. I remember this man from Millionaire Matchmaker this past season. I don’t find a hit with this name. I remember him being upset with Patti’s questioning him.) Imir wants a bachelor pad with personality. Madison knows what Imir’s intensions are. They ask Madison to step out so they can discuss him and he is shocked. When he returns Imir hires him reluctantly and threatens his companion with “you better be right on this.”

Joshu A meets with Ruth Holder, a 90 year old family friend who has to move to a senior facility near her family in Boston within 30 days. The apartment has a great view, 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and eat in kitchen, but it dated. They will ask for $669.000, but take the best offer.

Josh F. receives a call that he answers and tells them he will call them because he is sitting at the table in his pajamas eating breakfast. He holds the bowl to his mouth so he can drink the milk from his cereal. His hair is a mess during the entire show. He returns the call to discover that he has an offer on the Encino mansion, the offer is low. Susan, the woman about to marry money will not buy the home as her fiancé said, “No.”

Madison takes Imir to the Hollywood hills and shows him a house listed at $2,009,999. The listing agent is Bert. Imir is nasty during the entire visit. The home is 4,765 sq ft, 5 bedrooms, 5 baths, several fireplaces, wall to ceiling windows, a view from the kitchen, a game room and a large master suite with a view. Imir immediately says, “Not for me.” Madsion is going to show Imir a pocket listing which is a home that can be shown, but it is not listed for sale. It is 7 bedrooms, 7 baths, $2,500,000. In the garage, Imir sees a white antique car and is very interested in the car. He also likes the furniture. Madison would like to close a deal and get the claws off his back. Imir gives an offer for the full price, but he demands that all of the furniture and the car be included in the sale. He wants the owners to take their clothes and leave right now. He also demands to be in the meeting with the owner when the deal is presented. This is unusual and uncomfortable for Madison.

In Josh F’s office we see an old dog sitting on a chair. Josh is sick of trying to sell the Encino mansion. There is an offer of $3,000,000 from investors that want Monet to keep his name on the title. If the property should increase in price, the investors and Monet would split the profits. Josh F meets with Monet and his fellow agent in an Israeli Restaurant where they pay for dinner and buy and expensive bottle of wine. The present the deal and Monet, the owner, says, “No.” He looks at the offer and takes the bottle of wine and leaves. Josh F and the other agent decided that they will walk away from this listing.

Josh A has his assistant Mickey who does not have a real estate license stay at Ruth’s apartment. He allows Mickey to state that the apartment is 1711 sq ft and that anyone interested is the call Josh A on the phone. Three female real estate agents come during that period. One is very interested. She has someone in the building and she tries to make a deal with Mikey who has a hard time controlling her. One agent offers $625.000 in cash from someone on a lower level who wants a great deal. Josh A gets the buyer to move to $645.000.000 and he needs to meet with Ruth within 24 hours.

Madison has rented a house on the beach in Malibu for a change after living away from the ocean for 10 years. He is paying $5,000 rent per month for a small house which is outdated with mirrors on the closet doors. The deck is over looking crashing waves. It’s like a boat on water. A friend, Kathy, comes over and holds her arms around Madison from behing and then uses her magic powers to clear the house of evil spirits. There was a crystal on a string and two very noisy sea gulls.

To be continued….

Thanks again Quincy, I love this show!

LynnNChicago: In other Housewives news:

Real Housewives of Orange County’s Oldest…er…longest running Housewife Vicki Gunvalson is spitting nails angry over this web site. It seems the one they call “Wolfy” Is Vicki’s ex-husband Michael Wolfsmith and this is some really dirty laundry.

http://niftyk.wordpress.com/

It is probably one of the most confusing web sites I’ve seen in a long time, it is difficult to know who is saying what and who each person is but the information is certainly fascinating. Another glimpse into Vicki’s sorted past. I am not a fan.

Our friends at TVTime101 didn’t waste any time picking up the story…

    I am a regular 9-5 working person. Unless I hit the lottery I doubt I will ever have any major money like the people that are on this show…that being said, when they guy Imir turned down that BEAUTIFUL first house I thought damn! I wish I could see how the other half lives. I would love to live in that first house and without hesitation he said, it’t not for me. Man it must be nice to have that kind of money.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      HD, I see what you’re saying but isn’t it just the same as us but on a larger scale. When we “poor folk” go house hunting we do the same thing, when you walk into a house and it just doesn’t feel like “home” or you can’t picture yourself in that house, you move onto the next listing the Realtor has on the list. No? 🙂

      OT – The View cast on Oprah today, is she running out of show ideas? They show an old clip of Barbara Walters appearing on one of Oprah’s first shows when the show was still called “AM Chicago”.

      • HD says:

        That is very true, Lynn. If it’s not home, its just not home. But man I just would love to have that kind of money. It’s always rich people that say money can’t buy you happiness. No, but it sure can make your life much easier. LOL!

      • vilzvet says:

        Oprah’s had some nifty shows lately but I will definitely PASS on seeing the crones from The View, I despise that show and nothing can pull me away from Price is Right anyway, heheh. I did enjoy seeing the Trumps, the soap opera people as well.

        • mariareads says:

          Agree w/ you re The View women. What a bunch of angry, never satisfied women! I recently found The Talk on CBS and now I DVR it daily. The pre guest “talk” is hilarious. Check to see if your cable co. has it in your area. I like it and will continue to watch it late at night.
          So far, it’s clever and light and just what I need. I can live very well never seeing any of The View women again not to mention they are hard on the eyes. Must be the ugly spirit I feel coming out of them!

          • vilzvet says:

            I usually do catch The Talk every day! Decent show. I haven’t seen Marissa lately…is she still on? I know she was considered part-time.

        • boston02127 says:

          crones~~~LOL (my new word)

      • Katie says:

        YUCK, I can’t stand The View.
        Is Dr OZ out of body parts and things to examine or freak us out about?

  2. Katie says:

    Lynn – I LOVE your portrait of a HW blogs and Reality Buzz interviews.
    Where do you find the time?

    Jimmy Fallon was funny on WWHL last night.

    I’m not watching MD too much Bravo is not good. Sorry Q, but I really like the blogs you do and your comments on the site.

  3. Pantry Viewer says:

    Taking the liberty to copy this post below from the previous blog entry. Interesting! Ches, can you go back to that site and see if the poster will give you more info? Thanks for posting it.

    ches says:

    I forgot this part in my previous post.
    I really had a hard time believing her story about being abused. Adrienne didn’t know and Russell actually looked surprised (or as surprised as Russell could look). It seems to me she got the idea from her M-I-L and added the whole “abused when I was a kid” story so it wouldn’t look like she was kissing up to her M-I-L.
    I remember reading that she took her stepfather’s name because of the abuse she went through growing up. But I hit into this. It was published on a small forum, of mainly women and had nothing to do with the RH’s. I didn’t post the link here because the members post alot of their children’s pics there. If anyone wants it you can email me.
    The thread is “High School Popularity”.
    This one woman writes how she keeps in touch with a few people on FB…etc., and then this:
    “Kinda Funny though–there was a popular cheerleader in my graduating class who was kinda outcasted because of some things that she did–anyway, I did not know what happened to her. Then on 12/31, I was at the grocery store looking through In Touch Weekly, and I saw a picture of the girl from high school–her name was Shana Hughes. She had changed her name and got married, and she had some plastic surgery. Her name is now Taylor Armstrong, and she is on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. I have found it entertaining to watch some of the episodes from Bravo.”
    “She was outcasted because of some of the things that she did”, not some of the things that were done to her. I also have a feeling that whatever she did in that last year of high school might have been the reason for her first name change months later.

    • Katie says:

      This is very interesting.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I have a hard time with some of these “stories” -, high school hijinks undefined – no names, no photos, no proof…..these sound more like made up for blogging further the hating tidbits. Then they get passes from site to site and then it becomes “truth”. If Taylor was an “outcast” it could be something as simple as one ‘s boyfriend decided he liked Taylor better – of legal wrong doing is one thing – made up stories is something else.

      • Pantry Viewer says:

        I’m assuming it is something as simple as that. I still want to hear it though 🙂

        • ches says:

          Windy and Pantry – I’ll go back to the site and see if I can get any info. This was posted a couple of months ago, so hopefully she will answer.
          I thought the same thing about no name, no photos, no proof. I realize some people post comments and stories that are just lies. I think some stories (like the Boca/Taylor Ford one) have some truth to them, but may not be entirely true. And I also think there are stories out there that are totally true.
          After I found this, I went back throught the forum and read a few of this woman’s other posts. She had many. They pretty much dealt with her child, her husband, her wedding, etc. Nothing salacious, nothing mean or nasty. They were all pretty normal and low key and mostly about family or giving advice to another member.
          The only other post that mentioned Taylor was one (I think) discussing plastic surgery. She said she was in the supermarket, saw a girl who she went to school with, who was now on RH, but she barely recognized her on the magazine. That was it. I think this woman’s post seemed to have some validity after looking at her posting history, she seemed like she had no axe to grind, the Taylor posts didn’t seem mean and an obscure little forum was the only place I found this post
          I do believe she is telling the truth. Just not sure about what.
          If I find out anything else, I’ll let you know.

  4. Katie says:

    That Lisa New England blog that Jill and Crazy are promoting is a total joke. There is a blog up with 3 comments one from some dude, Lisa’s response and my comment telling them what a joke it is.

    Lynn watch out, you think you’ll be able to handle the competition? 😉

    • boston02127 says:

      @Katie–I’ve been watching that site too. Notice that no matter what the blog /subject is about she always has to throw in something “wonderful” about Jill.

    • boston02127 says:

      • LynnNChicago says:

        I believe that Jill is behind that blog somehow, if it isn’t her posting herself, it is someone who works for her or is somehow under her control. They set it up just in time for the RHONY Premier and is throwing a few blogs about other shows up just to prepare for New York.

        Once the show starts it will be an I Love Jill Zarin blog but its no competition for Quincy’s Blog Within a Blog.

        I suppose I could lose some readers if Jill behaves herself this season..HAHAHAHA I crack myself up!

        • quincyil says:

          You crack me up too, or was that a result of the brain injury??? I forget…

          You forgot to mention about the secret season four of RHNYC. Something is coming starting on Sundays here at the IHJZ blog until the high school age editors of RHNYC get their acts together. Three “I love Jill Zarin” blogs have been rewritten to remind all of you were we have been over the last three years. Then, in 8 days, Lynn is giving you the RH of NYC season four. For days, fellow board members have been remembering and researching behind the curtains. There are articles on the ladies, twitters, blogs, and facebook comments. It takes a village to build a television series. ROTFL After the first installment, your contributions will be included. It’s an adventure and we are all going to NYC together. Vinney is the host. Bring sleeping blankets and snacks.

          From Lisa New England’s twitter:

          I Love The Real Housewives – Ask Gloria50
          rate or flag this pageTweet thisBy Lisa New England

          I was recently watching The Real Housewives Of New York with a few of my girlfriends and it happened to be an episode that Jill Zarin’s mother, Gloria Kamen was on. The girls and I mused that we wished we could ask Gloria some advice ourselves. Later I got to thinking. Could this be a possibility? I decided to email Jill through her website and ask her if her Mom would be interested in dishing out some advice from a fabulous Jewish Mother.

          Jill’s assistant emailed me back with an email address for Gloria. After talking via email a few times we ended up having a great phone conversation. She said she would love to answer questions and offer advice. I rounded up the girls and we got a few questions together.

          Then the same Lisa tweets:

          Now, I’m not big on twitter, but isn’t Lisa’s twitter going overboard trying to get word out about Gloria’s advice. Another member of Jill’s family getting in on the action?

    • Katie says:

      They removed my comment, truth hurts I guess

    • quincyillinois says:

      I am actually praying for a peaceful transfer of power. I know people living in Egypt as they come here to visit family members. These Egyptians are good people and they love their country and families. My Iranian relatives really did suffer during the long years after the Revolution. There were food shortages, rationing, and lack of medicines.

      I hope that they will all find it within them to be careful with the rights of others.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        It will be a difficult time for awhile and my hope is that peace and prosperity will be their goals.

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        I’m worried about the Egyptian Christians. If the Muslims come to power what happens to them? they only make up 10% of the population and one of their churches were bombed at xmas killing 23 people…

        Neptune entering the sign of Pisces 4/04/2011- the first time since 1865- prediction of a time of religious fanaticism and an emphasis on water and how it is obtained. Planet of illusion and drug addiction…

        • lillybee says:

          My son writes water policy for small counties and has let me know that water issues are beginning to show up all over. He feels that it is the goal of corporations to privatize ground water and sell it at whatever the market will bear.

          • OneMoreInBoston says:

            hmmm…Neptune moves slowly but water is showing up in the news more and more frequently.

            Protecting our water sources from possible terrorist attack should be high on the agenda for Homeland Security not enjoying titillating full body gropes.

            I absolutely think he’s on target. When you say “Writes water policies for small counties” what state is he in?

    • Katie says:

      This will just be the start. There are more dictators in the world and the people in those other countries were following Egypt closely to see if they too can make it happen for themselves so this success will trigger others to do the same.

    • boston02127 says:

      @Q—Funny you should post that. This was her tweet yesterday: Taking girls to a lecture about parenting. Let’s see what they get out of it.
      .
      My first thought was, she should probably be going to parenting classes per court order.

      Kelly is the saddest of them all and she doesn’t see it. Her life is pathetic.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      From our younger, thinner and taller friend:

      YIKES! LiLo, Kelly wants you to show some respect when you go to court!

      Share
      The Real Housewives of New York City star Kelly Bensimon is appalled at how Lindsay Lohan dressed for court on Feb. 9. “Lindsay dressed completely and utterly inappropriately,” Kelly tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “You should dress like you are going to a funeral, not a club.”
      Why did Lindsay decide to wear a skimpy, tight white dress to court? “I think Lindsay is addicted to attention — media attention — and that’s what’s motivating her,” Kelly explains.

      Kelly, the daughter of a lawyer, has had some experience in court, and knows that it’s not a situation to take lightly. “When I went to court two years ago, I was throwing up at 5:00 a.m. because I was so upset,” says Kelly. “I dressed in all black and I slipped into the court house because I didn’t want to be seen.”

      “Lindsay, on the other hand, is dressing and playing for the cameras, treating it like a trip to a club,” adds Kelly.

      Um, Ms. KooKooPuff who never wants to be photographed and has no interest in getting media attention – want to tell us how this little frock is BLACK:

      • Brigid A. says:

        LOL! LOL! Gosh, anyone here see any pics of Kelly’s “appropriate” black attire for her court date a couple of years back? You know, that court date where she had to appear for punching her b/f? I missed it entirely and seems the press did, too.

        I’m guessing we’ll soon see Kelly sporting the very same winter-white dress Miss Lohan wore, and she’ll teach Lindsay a thing or two about authentic fashion.

      • kmuellfa says:

        PLEASE tell me someone tweeted this to her!
        DELUSIONAL LIAR!

      • Katie says:

        “When I went to court two years ago, I was throwing up at 5:00 a.m. because I was so upset,”

        Yeah right, she forgot to mention throwing up is part of her normal morning routine.

      • T-REX says:

    • PJ says:

      Maybe Kelly could start a line of proper court attire. Dresses made entirely of feathers glued together with a glue gun.

  5. AZ Girl says:

    @Quincy. Just finished a facinating artcle in this month’s (march) Vanity Fair on Paradise Cove in Malibu. Its a trailer park dating back to 60’s. It is right on the beach and you own the trailer but not the land. They sold for $25,000 in the 90’s now sell in the millions. Sending from phone sorry for typos.

    • quincyil says:

      That is a trailer park that we all can hope to live in some day. LOL.

      My aunt had a trailer in the 60’s in Florida and I thought that park was paridise. They had tennis courts and many pools. Flowers were every where. My beloved children’s baby sitter lived in a new trailer in a nice part in Quincy. We would go there for parties and the people in the park were wonderful. Everyone cared about their neighbors. I think there are good neighbors and bad neighborhoods and it’s not the amount of money that you have that is important. You could live next door to Taylor Armstrong or Kelly Bensimon and be miserable.

      • AZ Girl says:

        The article was great. You should check it out. There are several Hollywood moguls living there with their kids and the trailers are small. One mogul (no name given) commented that he is trying to teach his kids that the time spent together is much more valuable then large houses with a bunch of “stuff”. Kids have bunk beds in the living room. All person’s interviewed said it was like one big family there. I am so much more envious of them then having a “Camille” house somewhere in secluded Hollywood Hills. Matthew McConaghy lived there for a year and never wore a shirt. I personally think that is worth the price of the trailers.

    OK, I don’t twitter, but I just looked at that guy Chris, who took over Crazy’s acoount, and he is hilarious. Seriously, somebody needs to get the word out about him. His tweek about the evil KKB gift bag was sooooo funny. Anyway, just wanted to comment on that. I know it was discussed on the previous blog, but I”m always a bridesmaid, never a bride!

  10. Amber...RealWife says:

    Kyle is such a bad actress, her eyes and incredulous look, while grasping her pearls was too much. Puh-leeze BabyKyle! We know she would have hooted and hollered and demanded to see those pics. Obviously that scene was set up between her and Faye. At the reunion she said she showed them, but we saw actually it was Faye who had them on her phone. They were ready to reveal those pics to the other ladies, regardless of how the dinner party went. Meanwhile Adrienne was really shocked. Now that was a genuine reaction.

    • PJ says:

      I agree. Camille has been taking heat for saying she was set up but it looks like she knew what she was talking about. Kyle and Faye no doubt had that planed no matter how the dinner went. Kyle and Faye both disgust me.

  11. quincyil says:

    The following post is dedicated to Boston by a younger, thinner, smarter, and more humorous member of the board:

    Kelly Bensimon claims on this video that she has raised enough money to build 3 wells and each well costs 3k:

    http://www.hollywoodlife.com/2011/02/11/real-housewives-new-york-city-kelly-bensimon-video-haiti-wells-generosity-water/

    Now go here:

    http://www.mygenerositywater.org/67

    OK, she’s a moron, but how does $2,850 (not even enough for one well) equal 9k?

    Kelly also claims she just got some kind of innoculation against malaria. Um – no. For malaria, you can take oral prophylaxes (Larium, Maralone) but there is not vaccine. She’s stupid. It was probably yellow fever or cholera (even though there is significant doubt about the efficacy of the cholera vaccine).

    • LavaLady (formerly known as American Idiot) says:

      First of all, what the heck is Kelly playing with during the entire Hollywood Life interview. It looks like a rabbit foot keychain??? She claims that she has raised enough money for 3 or 4 wells, but Q is right, on her fundraising page she does not even have enough for one well. And she is going to Haiti, but only for 3 days, because she has children at home?? Yes, but she travels to Morrocco, and everywhere else, longer than 3 days, correct????

    Yikes a battle is raging between IL and California. I was following Lynn’s link about from tvtime. The I read about housewife hater and she showed a captured comment section from an article that had the original links to the wolfy page. It looks like people in IL who know Vicki’s ex are really all over the net and they have been successful in getting this out about Vicki. I also thought the comments in the link above seem real. One really attacks Ellen from the Wolfy blog. It sound like Vicki’s voice after a few margaritas.

    We know Vicki. She does only think of herself. She says things and is not afraid to hurt people who stand in her way. We see this in the reality show. Briana is upset that this blog and comments are out there and she is mad at her biological father. Vicki did criticize him on the show several times. She has said thing in articles about him also.

    • Adgirl says:

      As being the first wife with the first set of kids I can see what she might be upset about (although I really didn’t read all of the remarks). So I would be “Vicki” in this scenario.

      Our kids got what was left over financially and attention wise after my ex-husband devoted everything to his new family. I managed but it really bothered me to shoulder it all alone.
      When my ex died 2 yrs ago our young adult children were devasted to learn that they were not even mentioned as beneficiaries on his insurance and 401K – and he had signed those documents when our children were 10 & 13 yrs old!
      Many men divorce the material responsibility for their children when the marriage ends. They see the kids and stay in touch, but resent (mostly at the encouragement of the new woman) their moral and legal obligations to provide and protect the earlier family.

      From what little I understand of the Vicki situation she is owed a considerable amount of historic child support. However, since the children are now over age now the husband thinks he shouldn’t pay the back amount. His current woman is busy discrediting Vicki publicly.

      I’m sure the kids want this to go away. Vicki should probably walk away from the money and turmoil.

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        I am solidly squarely…undecided. I see both sides to this.

        And honestly adgirl- she was a real sh*t to Don. I think people were rooting for him because was the nice kind of ho hum average guy.

      • Rabble Rouser says:

        Vickie maybe a lot of things horrible but a dead beat is a dead beat.

        I don’t buy his victim routine one bit. If he fought to see his children and was generous and current in child support their would be a paper trail to prove it.

        His kids hate him for a reason. If it was just Micheal I could convince myself that it could be because he is the kind of kid you can never do enough for-and they will still have their hand out…bu Briana is nice girl.

    Note To Jill Zarin:

    you looked very nice in this picture. I don’t really understand why you were all dressed like that- but your makeup was flawless. Keep hiring whoever did it. I also like your hair off your face much better.

    I see you have taken my suggestion of wearing all black tights with a shorter black skirt- If I may also make a suggestion that the soles of your shoes should always be either red (you know who I’m talkin ’bout) or all black. It is the one jarring note in the photo- well besides the feather boa.

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

    Jill Zarin will walk the runway for fashion designer Zang Tois wearing the finale dress worth $30,000. Bravo has finished filming so they won’t be there to show us the audience reaction to Jill’s walk, but I am sure we will see photos in the news. The dress has crystals hand sewn into the dress. She will be Cinderella walking to the ball.

    We were able to see a fashion show by Zan Tois at a luncheon for Jill’s friends with a lot of money in season two of RHNYC and Jill wore that gorgeous skirt with a top at her fundraiser in the last episode of the reality show.

    Jill is retweeting the blogs of “good bloggers” and lisanewengland, a blog was was born in response to Jill’s request that an “I Love Jill Zarin” blog be created got a retweet from Jill a few days ago. I’m not really good with twitter, but I think Jill retweeted this and 1 other person on the plant retweeted also. I am sure this is an error because a tweet from Jill means there are 15,000 hits and surely many retweets. Jill did give her fans to Kelly the other day, so she is in the process of finding 100,000 newer and better fans to join her own site.

    lisanewengland @Jillzarin Hi Jill, new blog! Please RT enjoy! thx http://hubpages.com/hub/I-Love-The-Real-Housewives-Beverly-Hills-Lost-Footage 5:32 PM Feb 9th via web in reply to Jillzarin Retweeted by Jillzarin and 1 other

    It also seems that Jill might have found a lot for sale in the Hamptons and was considering building a home on the property. Ruth Katz was a interior designer/flipper of high price apartments in “Selling New York” on HGTV.

    These are the words of Ruth Katz:

    “First Jill read a passage about her husband Bobby. Then she announced that I was in the house… to my surprise, a wonderful round of applause broke out! Jill and I were able to put a lot of rumors to rest, and yes, if Jill comes back for Season 4 of ‘The Real Housewives of New York City” you will see a lot of me. Jill and Bobby may be building their dream house by Charles Regensburg out East and how fun the construction and design process would be to watch as the season ensues.”

    My thanks go to a young, thinner, smarter board member for the Ruth Katz contribution.

    The end.

              Ruth Katz who was featured on “Selling NY” from HGTV will help Jill. The source of information was Brad.

                I have a 1989 three quarter ton pick up to give as a prize too. It’s rusty, but the engine, transmission and brakes are like new… We keep rebuilding it because in Iran there are cars from the 196o’s on the streets..

    Oh, and Jill sold him shades and curtains for his new apt.

    Scott Greenspan is a friend of Lisa Wexler:

    So…lisanewengland with her juno email is actually coming from the Jill Zarin Team…

    This means that my “I Love Jill Zarin” blog on the prairie is the only ligitimate fan created and fan supported site on the web. It doesn’t count if you make a site to show love to yourself.

    BREAKING NEWS! Kelly Killoren to be charitable!

    We have learned that Kelly Killoren is NOT going to Haiti after all. To be charitable, she has decided to spare the poor people of Haiti, who have suffered enough already, by not visiting them. The tall, mannish former wife of famed photographer Gilles Bensimon, who dumped her leather ho-bag ass four years ago, was scheduled to go dig some wells so the people of Haiti could have fresh water. She’d been busy packing her bikinis for her famous bikini beach shots when she learned that the people of Haiti don’t have Patron Vodka, beer, or lemonade, either. She quickly began an effort to raise funds to build bars. However, when she learned that humanitarian groups had organized a petition drive asking that fame whores stay home, because it diverts so much time and money from those who are really trying to re-build Haiti’s infrastructure, she realized that she could do more good by staying in New York and running to bars and clubs every night. That’s our Kelly – always willing to go the extra mile for a good cause. Now we know that our Kelly doesn’t lend her name to a cause – ever. Because evidently she’s Madonna. So we won’t mention the name of the organization that she raised $2,850 of other people’s money for, while claiming that she raised $9,000.

    Previously, Kelly did NOT go to South Africa. In 2008, she was scheduled to go to South Africa to help open a school. She told the now-defunct Page Six magazine, “I really had wanted to see the country and all the turmoil that is happening over there; it’s so trendy in the news, but I was hoping to see it firsthand.” However, she missed her plane by 10 minutes and decided to cartwheel over to Las Vegas, where she attended a diamond convention and bought a few conflict diamonds. That’s our Kelly – always willing to go the extra mile in the wrong direction for a good cause.

    In the interim, Kelly supported PETA by wearing numerous fur coats and Jill Zarin’s Creaky Joints charity event by promising that the ex-husband who dumped her leathery ho-bag ass would donate a photo shoot … that never happened.

  23. Real Housewives of New York City Star Ramona Singer Disses Bethenny, Explains Show Delay
    ***************************************************************************
    This Real Housewife may be starting a real-life fight.

    The Real Housewives of New York City star Ramona Singer tells E! News that there is “no truth” to reports that the Bravo hit’s new-season premiere was pushed back because it was boring and needed major retooling. She also says this season’s better without her real-life pal and former castmate, Bethenny Frankel.

    Do tell, Ramona…

    “No truth to it,” she says of the reports the show is being overhauled due to a lack of drama.

    “How could it be boring? Am I boring? I could never be. It really is everyone’s scheduling. Everyone has different schedules and things going on and we are working on it.”

    Singer, speaking to us today at Lincoln Center during New York’s Fashion Week, goes on to suggest that the upcoming edition is “the best one yet.”

    “Oh my gosh, this is the best season ever, because there’s no evil drama,” Singer says. “People ask will the show be good without Bethenny on it, but I think the show will be better because she made it too dark. She and [BFF-turned-nemesis] Jill [Zarin] made it too dark with the fighting.”

    Singer says she knows there has to be some drama to keep viewers interested, and it’s certainly not all lollipops and satchels of gold among the current castmembers—it’s just a different, softer dynamic.

    “I’m not saying there’s not going to be fighting, but we make up at the end of the day. We all get along, but at the end of the day we can all drink Ramona Pinot Grigio together.”

    And Singer promises it’s going to air.

    “I’m telling you, I know, I filmed it,” she says. “This is the best season yet. We’re in Morocco and it’s better than Sex and the City.”

    If you say so, Ramona…Let’s just hope that’s not the pinot talking.

    • California35 says:

      OMG!!! Bethenny made it dark???!!! how about Jill made it dark when (or for )Bethenny was there.?!!! UGH!! Ramona I like you, but don’t say that!! Maybe I get what she is saying….things were darker last season becuase of the drama…but don’t blame it on Bethenny…

      • Jill is the one who wanted their fight on the show. I think the cast of RHONY is upset because the media keeps saying that the show won’t be any good without Bethenny. Before the postponement, I was definitely going to watch but now I’m not so sure. They can spin it as much as they want to, I don’t think season four of RHONY will be worth watching.

        • NormaJean says:

          Hmmm, so much for Ramona telling Bethenny at the end of season 3 that she could trust her.

        • California35 says:

          I agree, I had dicided not to watch if B leaft BUT J and K stayed. After all the talk and time that went by, I was thinking I would watch after all…even though I still CAN”T believer those two will be there.

          First B will be back, then B will be back only for a few episodes, then B is not back at all…then the recording continues, the date is anounced, then they cancel or “postponed” the date.

          Any ways, I keep going back and forward…since B has her own show and KNOW I WILL watch that…I will will see about NY….

          • After reading Ramona’s description of season 4, I can understand why it isn’t going to premiere next week. It sounds like it is going to be boring. RHONY was my favorite but I don’t have any interest in watching anymore.

      • Error404 says:

        Not that I’m making excuses but…..

        The Jill vs B feud was dark. It’s also what upped the ratings, so a less dark show isn’t not boring, but really, did anyone expect anything other than them all cooling it for a bit?

        Also, I don’t know if I’d say B made it dark, but unlike R she refuses to take shit, look the other way, or pretend she is friends with these people. Jill treats R like crap, but R just keeps blowing it off and sticking to her “we’re old friends” story.

        • California35 says:

          I agree with you. It was dark, but I wouldn’t blame that on B. A lot had to do with hernor about her… But because K, L, J where just horrible tour her. Episode 3 was like the episode to confront B for anything she had said to their face or behind their back…later found out it wasn’t because of the things she said but because she was getting too popular for their liking.

    • California35 says:

      lol better than Sex and the City??! lol I think not….okay so I agree with the coment “If you say so, Ramona…Let’s just hope that’s not the pinot talking.”

      • quincyil says:

        I purchased “Sex and the City 2” from dish network. I thought it was contrived and boring. I actually felt pity for the characters now that they have grown into an age that they fell is old. I believe that Bravo’s relationship with Sarah Jessica Parker made them think this trip to the desert would bring some drama to the series. I have never been interested in the Countess or Ramona. We rarely mention them here. Andy has a huge problem on his hands with this series.

  24. One of my Twitter friends retweeted some of Kelly’s tweets. LOL

    (name deleted) @kkbensimon what color should I paint my fingernails?

She claims that she was sitting around chatting with a bunch of girlfriends and they all thought: wouldn’t it be great if we could ask Jill Zarin’s mother for advice? So Lisa emailed Jill and one thing led to another…now Mother Gloria is answering a bunch of questions supposedly posed by Lisa’s friends.

    • Error404 says:

      Pathetic

      • DarkSonnet says:

        Beyond pathetic. Now with the supposed collaboration of the Crypt Keeper, I think the finger points more and more in the direction of this blog being written by her sister Lisa.

        Now we have the Evil Triumvirate back in business, worming their way back into public view. (By popular demand, of course!)

        Before we know it, Lisa (with a “stand in” Lisa) will be renting rooms, charging money to have Ghastly Gloria and Jillous speaking to groups again. Of course, the inevitable Literary Loss (paperback & hardback) will once again be flogged for personal gain and there will probably be a table set up, piled high with the newest scam, the Spanx rip off.

        If this sounds too far fetched for you, please remember who we are dealing with and her past escapades. She has no shame and her appetite for personal fame is unquenchable.

            Well, I for one say go for it, Jill Zarin. You and your girlfriends need advice from Gloria. I get my advice from the people here. I enjoy sharing. Let Jill share with Lisa, Gloria and their friend Scott.

            The reason people enjoy a blog is there is content, humor, and free discussion. Lynn puts a lot of work into this place. Let Jill do the same. It takes time to do the research for my subset blog which is published every single day and buried in the board. So far, I think my subset board has more comments than Jill’s board and it doesn’t have Jill tweeting it all day long. My only fear is they will steal my sponsor, Zarin Fabrics. My parting gifts are spectacular and without Zarin Fabrics, I’m going to have to give everyone Persian carpets and those mosaic frames with gold and ivory. Of course, I might get the minimalist home design that I always wanted if Zarin Fabrics stops sponsoring my “I Love Jill Zarin” blog. Hmmm. There is always a bright side to every thing.

      I read the blog. How many different ways can you saw boring? Blah, bland, and the comments were boring too. Hated it.

    Quincy, I know it’s late and you are nit around, but wanted to go back to your recap on M$L – just watched it.

    So that pushy rude single guy was on another Bravo reality show? MMM to be exact…I’m wondering now if he is following Patty’s advice to get his own place to attract woman .. But I doubt she will like to see him in a “bachelor pad”. I did not like him, I like the car in that house but not the go use, inactively liked the first house better.

    The scene with Josh and his mom and brother made me think of Jill sister and mom. I couldn’t help it. He being the star of the family like Jill. At the same time, his mom made me think of Jill. Making him help the lady for no commission. That must have hurt, but made him look good on tv (to us and potential clients). In the end he did something good helping the lady sell she home.

    Monet’s house just seems like won’t be sold for his asking price, and Josh and parter in this are not fighting for it. They probably are sure this is a lost cause, but why not just tell him that and move on? They just keep hoping.

    Thanks for the recap…I’m glad I finally saw the episode.

    I also saw Top Chef and I was sad to see Fabio go 😦 but THREE types of meet for the hamburger?! And why dis he melt the cheese? Carla is so funny with her chicken pie. good for her on winning three times in a row.

      He was in a cattle calle and responded with the same nastiness to questions that he did on the tours. I was trying to find out what country he was from because I thought his accent might be Russian. I have a friend from the Ukraine so I asked her to listen to him. She thought he might be from the Balkans. Imir is an Islamic name. I know he’s not Persian. I am an expert on all things Iranian after 38 years. The Turks use the name Imir, but I have Turkish close friends and they don’t sound like him. He’s not Pakistani or Indian. Many people on Million Dollar Listing are Israeli and he doesn’t sound like them. I will figure it out. Google doesn’t help.

      • Kansas Girl says:

        I agree with you Quincy. I can’t place his accent either. Russian is the closest, but he doesn’t have quite the intonation that I expect from a Russian speaker. They tend to hold sounds at a high note and then fall sharply. To me it sounds like a sharp chop when they speak using Russian intonation. (And they often carry that over to English till they can lose the accent.) I was guessing he was a wealthy middle-easterner who had grown up in another culture. To me, he has the attitude of someone from the ME who is extremely wealthy and unrealistic. But then there are some very wealthy Russians with that world view too. You’ve got me curious about him.

    • quincyil says:

      BTW… Harvey, the 7 ft white rabbit researcher than Lynn hired discovered that the Encino home is still on the market at the price that Monet wanted originally. He must have used his savings to pay for the renovations because contractors have to be paid. Well, contractors get paid in our neck of the woods.

      I just watched some old “Million Dollar Listings.” Josh Flagg does not bath or shower. He drinks too much. He is very young and did not go to college. He studies tax rolls and knows the history of homes. He is a very odd person. I can see why his mother has concerns about him. He said that he has only two friends. I doubt that number is so high. He might have a fancy apartment and live a grand life, but I would not want to be his mom.

        Wasn’t Josh the one taking a bubble bath with massive bubbles in it? It stuck in my head because there were soooooooooooooo many bubbles. Also I can’t recall a show with him drinking a lot but then again what Bravo-celebrity doesn’t wake up with a glass of wine?

        Him not going to school never crosses my mind. Many people that have done well in life have not. He has managed to have a cushy life, selling million dollar homes and be on a show that you blog about and we discuss weekly at the rip old age of 26. Not bad.

        I don’t have issues with anyone on this show. I like the show. It’s certainly a change from the normal drama (which I love too.)

        • quincyil says:

          He goes to a client home filthy and in exercise clothing because his electric and water were turned off. He lost the listing. He is out of control at his 21st birthday party and afterwards alone in a hotel room where he is so depressed that I felt concerned for his state of mind.

          I believe has has mental issues and that is what Bravo finds appealing. Chad certainly had issues. His preoccupation with his hair was one.

          I can’t wait until Kyle’s husband is on “Million Dollar Listing.” That is going to be interesting.

          Oh, there is a fascinating clip where Josh Flagg is at an open house and he sees two women who are dressed up for the open house. He predicts that they have a rented Ford Mustang. He goes to the street and they have a rented red Ford Mustang from Enterprise. He looked at them touring and said that they weren’t buyers. They had come to California on vacation and that they are touring homes for fun. I wanted to do that so now I know I should not dress up to visit the homes and I should have a limo driver waiting for me when I look at the homes. LOL..

          Actually, my friend is qualified and she looks in the LA market. She has rented in Long Beach this winter as she has a new grandson. I am trying to get her to rent in Malibu so I can look at some of the houses on the show. She laughs, but she is listening to me.

          • HD says:

            For some reason I really liked Chad. His hair was insane, his preoccupation with that dog was interesting and his, “you cheapen this day” line was memorable. I went to his site to see if I could find out why he left the show. He just said career move. Apparently he is doing quite well for himself. I wish he would have stayed.

            I like the new guy. He reminds me of Ari Gold.

            Perhaps I missed those episodes with Josh. Getting sloshed on your 21st birthday is the norm though for most people turning 21. As for his state of mind afterwards, alchohol is a depressant so that doesn’t surprise me. People drink to “feel” better but in actuality you feel worse.

            • quincyil says:

              Bravo has been showing reruns of the show. Josh Flagg seems better this season. Josh Altman seems more interesting in the second episode than the first. I like watching the show and taking notes for the board.

    Harvey found a nationality for the mean businessman, Imir. He is Russian.

    http://curbed.com/archives/2011/02/11/million-dollar-listing-recapped-ep-2-russian-for-the-hills.php

    I purchased the Learning Company series on Russian Literature last year. If you look at their history of conflict and the way they approach life, you can understand why Russians seem so dark and drink a lot of vodka. The literature of a nation tells a lot about the people.

    Russian Jews have immigrated to the United States and they brought their culture to our film industry. Checkhov, a Russian short story author and the creator of well know plays had an influence on the education of our actors and film school graduates. If you look at the stucture of Checkhov’s plays, you can see that the producers of the Real Housewives series use his concepts like foreshadowing and character development to give a story line to the reality of the women’s lives. I find the mixing of real lives and the format of plays fascinating. I think Adrienne and Lisa of BH are aware of Bravo’s intentions. They probably have advisors on set during all filming. Jill Zarin seem oblivious to all of this manipuation behind the scenes. She wants fame so much that she is allowing Bravo to affect her existence. I would love to have a meeting with Jill Zarin to show her what Bravo is doing to her. I’m not sure she could comprehend what is happening. Perhaps, Lisa Wexler should come to the meeting and I could show her the evidence.
