I Hate Jill Zarin Watch What Happens Live Air Date Feb 10, 2011 And More Housewives News

Andy Cohen hosted Jimmy Fallon on Thursday’s episode of Watch What Happens Live. Does anyone else think they should just go ahead and re-name this show “The Andy Cohen Show”? That’s what it is after all.

This is the kind of thing I enjoy seeing on Watch What Happens Live, this was a fun show full of interesting information!

Jimmy Fallon is hysterical and he was clearly under pressure to be funny on the show, you could see a bit of the panic and the “trying too hard” but I think he did a great job overall.

Fallon was a guest judge on a recent episode of Top Chef All Stars and gave us a lot of backstage information that I had always been curious about. The meal that we watched his family enjoy to celebrate his birthday, prepared by the contestants of Top Chef actually began at 9:00am, and the meal took hours to film. The Top Chef producers gave some of Jimmy’s family members some lines to say for the cameras and Jimmy explained how they botched their lines and was really funny describing his mom getting it all wrong.

Jimmy told us that Judges Table took just over an hour to film, a bit less than the sometimes exaggerated reports we get from Chef Tom Colicchio or Padma who claim they slave for hours at Judges Table discussing the dishes they’ve eaten. Fallon also explained that the Top Chef kitchens and Judges Table are in an undisclosed secret location, a former warehouse, in a not-so-great part of New York City.

Fallon was asked to impersonate his favorite housewife and he seemed to have a bit of a brain freeze and was hesitating but finally mentioned Jill Zarin and did a quick few words that sounded nothing like Jill. It was not a flattering portrayal yet, of course Jill knows that her name being out there under any circumstances is a good thing, so she tweeted this:

@Bravoandy and @Jimmyfallon talked about me tonight on Watch What Happens. I think I died and went to heaven. When will I meet you Jimmy?

OMG Jill, calm down, it wasn’t anything to get so excited about, trust me! I wouldn’t describe it as “talking about you” by any stretch of the imagination. Obviously Zarin wants to get on Jimmy’s show, Don’t do it Jimmy!

In typical WWHL fashion, the game of the show was absolutely idiotic as Fallon was attempting to predict what Beverly Hills Housewife Lisa Vanderpump would respond to specific questions. Fallon admitted that he did not know Lisa and it was obvious he was just trying to make his answers funny and made no attempt to guess what she would say, unfortunately Fallon failed to be funny in this bit. This has to be the low point of an otherwise pretty good show.

It was clear that Jimmy Fallon actually did watch previous seasons of Top Chef and was a fan of some of these All Stars. He showed real compassion and admiration for the Chef that he had to send home while guest judging on the show, Fabio was clearly a fan of Fallon’s as well.

Fallon actually described the first time he saw the chef’s all parade into his studio and it was obvious that Fallon was truly in awe of this group of chefs.

Andy Cohen’s top three things that he’s obsessed with this week:

1. The Top Chef contestants montage of clips of them acting pretty silly all blamed on Jimmy Fallon being the guest judge for the week. That was a cute group of clips.

2. In a preview from Sunday’s Atlanta Reunion, Andy showed NeNe Leakes and Phaedra Parks arguing about how long they’d known each other and whether or not they went to school together. It is a preview that we’ve already seen on Bravotv.com. Can we see something new Andy?

3. Andy used his third choice as a reason to re-play Jimmy Fallon’s performance of Kim Zolciak’s song “Tardy For The Party” as rocker Neil Young. Funny stuff but 6 weeks old.

With some fake prompting from Jimmy Fallon, Andy addressed the rumors regarding The Real Housewives of New York. Andy announced that The Real Housewives of New York premier delay was simply a timing issue. He explained that they just wrapped filming a few weeks ago and simply need more time to edit the footage. Whether you believe him or not, I appreciate that he did mention it.

Andy also cleared up the rumor that Heidi Montag would be the newest Beverly Hills Housewife. As Andy explained, Heidi did start the rumor by Tweeting that she was preparing to be the newest Bravo Housewife.

This is an old trick, announcing something that you *Hope* may happen trying to either force the hand to make it happen or put the idea in the producer’s head so that they consider it. In Heidi’s case it is pretty clear that Andy has absolutely no intention of putting her on his network. In fact I believe he said he would stick something in his eye before having Ms. Montag on his network. Heidi was Andy’s Jackhole of the week.

Here is Heidi’s Tweet:

@HeidiMontag: Watch out Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Here comes Heidi…http://bit.ly/RHBFHeidi

RadarOnLine reported the story that Heidi and her husband Spencer Pratt wanted to be on the show, jumping the gun and giving these two idiots any credibility in their reports. This couple clearly put the word out there that they were meeting with Bravo’s people simply in hopes that it would happen. I think Andy cleared up that rumor very well. Spare your eye Andy, we don’t want her on the show either!

This little stunt that Heidi pulled isn’t unique to morons like Montag, if you remember Teresa Giudice tried a similar stunt with Dancing With The Stars, she tweeted that she’s “Considering” doing the show and even asked fans which male professional dancer she should choose to pair up with. Luckily ABC didn’t bother with Teresa, especially since she clearly knows very little about the show. The one thing that we’ve heard over and over is that the celebrities don’t get to choose their professional dancing partner, the show’s coordinators chose the best partner for each celebrity. Teresa’s arrogance will most likely ensure that she’ll never grace ABC’s stage. Let’s hope!

But I digress…

Andy’s Mazel of the Week was a genius who contacted his local police department asking just how much marijuana you can have before being in trouble with the law. Seriously? Just how stupid is this guy? I weep for our education system. He got an answer, while sitting in jail for possession of marijuana.

And so ends another episode of Watch What Happens Live or as I’m going to being calling it, “The Andy Cohen Show”. After all the network has dumped the tag line, “Watch What Happens” anyway for the “By Bravo” ads.

Part One of the Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion airs on Bravo Sunday night at 10pm / 9pm Central Time. Enjoy! Check out the previews on Bravotv.com:

As many of you know, Kelly Killoren Bensimon changed her Twitter name from @Kikilet to @KKBensimon. Due to Kelly’s lack of brains, she abandoned her previous name @Kikilet allowing anyone to pick it up and run with it.

A Twitter friend of mine, Chris took over the name and has kept us all laughing ever since, some of her hysterical tweets:

@Kikilet: Ok ok shtawwwp. Jusht shtawwppp. Tweeeterrrrcracksssh *hic* Ive hadlil too mushta..drinksh…I thinksh…*buurp* Ewwwwhurrrllugh

@Kikilet: Woohoooot!!1 Thish partay ish ROCKIN!!! Jusht shang BadGirlsh on Karanokie. SHO. MUSH. FUN. But….whatsh a howlermunkey? Thatsh good righT?

@Kikilet: Tweeeterrrrzigzagssss I’m a skosh late 4 a fab soiree @ my deer frends @Kikilet: YvesStArmaniRalphTommyHillfiVersace’s luxe penthouse#plsbelieveme

@Kikilet: Woohoooo!!! Just completed an enema/colonblow cleanse. Now I’m less full of shit than I was 20 mins ago. Be healthful #Changeisgood

@Kikilet: I’m having my frontal lobe removed tomorrow in an effort to stay in character

@Kikilet: I miss you Max Max. No one ever said “You remind me to da Pink Panther” quite like you. Be my valentine. Don’t care that you poked Sonja.

@Kikilet: Back off Stinka. Hes the most famous photog in the history of the world and he picked me. How flattering is that?

@Kikilet: Ooof. That Zac Pozen dress is part of the ecosystem? Is that better?

@Kikilet TO @Bethenny: I’ve got to get this off my manly chest, I’ve always had a mad crush on you. That whole I’m up here/youre down here thing? I wiish

@Kikilet: Tweeeterrrtokesss Ooof I was a tad off on $ that I razed to build wells in Hatey. Oh wellsies. LOL Was nvr very gd @ guzintas (2guzinta42x)

The misspellings are intentional. There are a whole lot more to see her complete list of tweets, go to:

On Tuesday we will see the final installment of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, The dinner party from hell at Camille Grammer’s house. Four hours of filming was edited down to the 20 minutes or so that we’ve already seen, now they’re going to show us a bit more. I’m not expecting a whole lot, they’ve already shown the best parts, I’m sure. Here is one preview that Bravo is providing and it is interesting because that if we can assume it isn’t taken out of context, it also proves that Kyle lied at the reunion, take a look:

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

Kyle insisted that the naked photos of Camille that were shown in the limo after the dinner party were saved in emails on her cell phone. What we see in this clip is Faye pulling up the photos on HER cell phone and it is crystal clear that Kyle hadn’t seen them before.

I guess Taylor and Kyle would make a good pair, they both lie. I think that Lisa’s concerns about Taylor are warranted but maybe Lisa should worry about her friend Kyle as well. Dump them both Lisa, stick with Giggy, at least he doesn’t lie.

    Lynn im pretty sure chris isnt a woman LOL

  2. Lisa In New England created an ask Gloria blog. *shakes head*

    Jillzarin : Check out the new ASK GLORIA blog! Love it! http://hubpages.com/hub/I-Love-The-Real-Housewives-Ask-Gloria

    • VincenzoNewYork says:

      Thanks Lynn For the recap!

      I don’t think Gloria is qualified to dispense any advice whatesoever!
      Some of the content in that book, which I have not read yet, and from what I have read from reviews on Amazon.com, is neither conducive nor constructive to healing any emotional ailment!!!!

      • quincyil says:

        Shhhhhh… Vinney. Jill reads the board. If you want to get in her good graces, don’t criticize Gloria. Do a one eighty quickly.

        Love,

        Q

    • quincyil says:

      Lisa and her friends have difficult lives. One person put a negative comment on the site, but I think as soon as Jill wakes up person will be banned.

      Jill is making fun of people who have shared their real life stories on web sites by making up questions for Gloria. I am not surprised. Jill is attempting to parody blogs that review the housewives series from Bravo. The Kamen women are interesting. They don’t like the way bloggers and people on boards have criticized them and their book. Jill and Gloria’s humor falls flat with many in cyberspace. I don’t understand Jill’s attempts at making jokes at the expense of her friends.

      I seem to have a friend, Harvey, who I can make laugh without hurting his feelings.

      Jill has an email address on that site. It’s a juno address. I wonder if Jill would let me send some of my old “I Love Jill Zarin” blogs on the prairie for her site. I have good reviews from people here and the comments sections are filled with whitty remarks. I think I could help Jill and fill in for her while she is on vacations. While she was in Costa Rica, her site went dark.

    • Katie says:

      Not a fan of this mother/daughter team. Go away no one cares!

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      Oh for F-sake those people are so full of shit.

      I firmly believe that New England Lisa is Lisa Wexler but even if she is not, we already know they are all in cahoots with each other. The Ask Gloria segment is just the cat turd on top of the mud pie. Can those questions be anymore contrived? Someone is being ‘bullied’ at work…how ironic that the paper back edition to “Secrets of Jewish Mother” has a chapter based on just that.

      Jill Zarin is the LAST person who should be talking about ‘bullying’ for a multitude of reasons the primary one being that the real drive behind it has nothing to do with actually bullying- it’s Jill not wanting to not only except criticism but to SILENCE and CENSOR any words or opinions that aren’t in her favor.

      There are real kids- in real conflict-in real pain making devastating choices and she exploits them for her own self serving reasons. What she is doing is even more despicable than being an ambulance chaser.

      Jill should have quit while she was ahead- while the negative feelings and blogs about her were only ‘hate’ in the figurative sense; in reality it was nothing more than some snark on the internet with comments like ‘Can you believe this bitch?’ Now I feel something more, I am actually and truly repulsed and disgusted. She is not a ‘bitch’, she is actually sad, desperate, needy and pathetic.

      Yes, Jill you ‘win’. I don’t ‘hate’ you anymore.

      I am far too revolted and disgusted by you to feel angry, frustrated or upset.

      I’m am so confused on how someone like you can spend so much time and money on developing your ‘image’ yet be the age you are and still have no sense of ‘self’.

      Well played Jill Zarin, well played.

    Advice from Gloria? End up just like Jill Zarin! No thanks.

  4. quincyil says:

    Oh, my…. Old news, but some people don’t think Jill Zarin is high society in NYC.

    From Harvey, who was chomping on a carrot while typing this:

    2008 Social Diary

    http://www.newyorksocialdiary.com/node/33264

    As far as the Society angle goes, these girls are not Society. An expensive apartment, a limo and a house in the Hamptons does not society make. Those accoutrement won’t hurt if that’s what you’re looking for; but they also won’t help. These girls are all spawns of the subPrime world that is now imploding around us.

    Whoever it was that told him the other cast members were put out by KK’s coming on to the show because she’s so pretty….2 guesses. First initial: J. Middle initial: T. Last initial: S.

    • quincyil says:

      Remember when Bethenny was in the swimming pool with Jill discussing Kelly at the beginning of Season Two RHNYC? She said that Kelly Bensimon was the real deal. Bethenny said that Kelly knew famous people. Where is the evidence of that? We see Kelly alone most of the time. We see her many trips to Miami and the photo shoots, but she is never with anyone that I know. I do read so if someone is famous, I probably have heard their name, but I never know the people with Kelly. I think Giles Bensimon is famous and he lives with Picasso’s granddaughter whose grandfather was really famous. I wonder if Kelly knows Picasso’s granddaughter. I’m sure Kelly’s kids know her and that is very cool.

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        you know- I have mentioned this before- but I actually did know who Kelly was when it was announced that she was joining the cast.

        And I was pumped! I thought she was gorgeous, I had purchased every one of the Elle Assecories magazine that she was on the madthead as the editor.

        Her apartment with the horse and the omg2die4 Hermes scarf pillows had been featured numerous times, and I believed that she was the real deal to.

        Like bethanny I too thought Kelly was the real deal. All of the frenetic socializing, schmoozing and relentless, frantic self promotion seemed effortless and unaffected, because all I really saw of her were 15 sec. sound bites.

        Boy what a master of manipulation! What a con artist! She is no more relevant than a zit on my ass! Just a relief when it goes away!

        (***disclaimer***my ass really doesn’t have zits. It was an expression. An Authentic Expression. Know that. OMG-getting my crazies all mixed together! need cawfee! bawbee!)

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          Quincy- how come Harvey doesn’t post himself? Let him out of the basement!

          I wonder why Harvey is mad at JZ?

          Slightly OT- I love decorating blogs. And Allie’s blue bedroom, that was featured in Traditional Home, is featured quite regularly.

          With no credit given to the designer or even to Jill Zarin. interesting…

          I think it would probably really suck to put your talent to use and to have your creations receive accolades yet you remain anonymous.

          Doesn’t sound like the game plan Brad signed up for. I wonder when the game plan changed, and how stealing his work was justified to him- if it was justified at all.

          Jill Zarin sounds like Martha Stewart. Except less talented.

        • TLM says:

          Did not know who she was until the show, but in the first few episodes I agreed with you. It wasn’t until later in the show — really not until her second season — that her mental illness and social ineptness — her “psychological and emotional problems,” as Bethenny correctly called them — started to emerge.

          In that first season, I actually was on Kelly’s side and thought Bethenny was being a little crazy with the accusations that Kelly never would say hello to her. I recently saw the infamous Brass Monkey scene again, and Kelly said, “The difference between you and me is that while you’re talking, I’m actually doing things.” And at the time she actually had me fooled, because we had no idea of the things Bethenny was working on or what she was going to do. She was working like crazy, but it was all behind the scenes, and on the surface it seemed like she was every other small-time chef trying to become famous. How things changed.

          I think back on that statement and how unbelievably ironic it is, since what else does Kelly do but just talk about how “amazing” everything is, where B is writing books, recording audiobooks, touring the country, running a beverage company, Twittering and Facebooking to fans, launching a skin care line, working on her 2nd exercise DVD, competing in a figure skating show, being a spokesperson for Pampers, Pepperidge Farms, Bluefly, Drugstore.com, appearing as a cooking expert on national shows, writing syndicated columns, and being a new wife and mom? (I’m sorry Bethenny, I’m sure I’m leaving something out!!!)

          I’m sure people are bored of hearing me say this, but Bravo had no business extending an offer to Kelly for a second season. They should have instead helped her check into a psychiatric facility.

      • error404 says:

        Silex has always stuck out like a sore thumb on this show, as the brooklyn hipster poser is it’s own type. I’m surprised they never got their own spin off show. Gentrifying yuppies have been around as a type for a half century, and have been the subject of many tv sitcoms. Why not a reality show?

        As for Kiki, to be fair, true “Society” wouldn’t touch reality TV with a 10′ designer limited edition pole. That’s why even pseudo society like Kiki and Sonja didn’t join until much later and why their friends won’t go near them if a camera is around.

        Her embarrassingly home made cable show “Behind the Hedges” did have a few famous people, like Richard Meyer and whoever that Top Chef dude was. Her ex is famous and she did work for a real magazine, even if it was a bogus “in title only” job, so I think she probably does know famous people. BTH was more honest and real and all those other adjective’s Kiki is always using to describe herself. And she certainly wouldn’t be the first ex-wife to get dumped by “friends”. Happens in all classes. But I also suspect her increasingly alarming behavior have scared away some people too. She’s either become addicted to fame, had a psychotic break, or both.. but even on the 2 seasons she did of the show she went from stuck-up poser to bat shit crazy bunny boiler in record time.

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          “bunny boiler”

          may be my new nickname for her- scarily true

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          After listening to Kelly say RHONY is a tv show – I wonder if this gives her free reign to act innappropriate without guilt – to do and say things that are offensive without having to apologize….either way she has too many different personalities for me!

  5. boston02127 says:

    G2G, Have a good day everyone.

  6. Adgirl says:

    Hi Lynn,
    Thanks for writing about Jimmy Fallon on WWHL. I adore him. I wish his show was on earlier. Last night he did my favorite bit “Thank You” cards (he wrote one to that annoying little crack between our stoves and the counter that collects oddities). I wish he wrote “Thank You” cards to Top Chef contestants.

    He mentioned the Top Chef studio was in Flatbush which I think is Brooklyn.

    I thought he said it took an hour to shoot the judges profiles lined up looking serious, because he cracked up when the camera panned to him.

    Jimmy obviously does not watch RH at all. He is aware of the loud mouth one from NY.

    Mayonaise reminds him of pus.
    I didn’t notice them drinking did you?

  7. WindyCityWondering says:

    Andy Cohen Show – no doubt about it! Jimmy Fallon is a Top Chef fan – why not stick with TC for the half hour – Jimmy isn’t into HWs so don’t go there! Why not a TC game since Jimmy knows the subject? Why not do impressions of TC past chefs? Andy can still have his Mazel/Jackhole segments. But if a guest is not a knowledgeable fan of other Bravo offerings don’t go there! Jimmy can be so funny but he wasn’t given the opportunity to be so because BravoAndy doesn’t have a clue how to host or interview guests.
    My problem with this show is it is either really good or really bad – if guests don’t know the shows or are unwilling to talk about the shows then don’t have them on!!!!

    Thanks for blogging, Lynn! I miss you round these parts. 🙂 My car broke down sooooooooo I am home all weekend until it gets fixed so I can catch up on your podcast and other writings. YOU GO GIRL!! I am very proud of you. I can say, “I knew her when…” 🙂

    I missed Jimmy Fallon on Andy’s show but loved him on Top Chef. I also loved, as you mentioned, that he actually knew about the show. I hate when they have people on who don’t even watch the shows. What’s the point?

    I’m in love with your friend Chris who now owns Kelly’s name. He is HILARIOUS! I bet she regrets giving that name. LOL! But I love it!

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      ((((HD)))))

    • error404 says:

      it both makes sense and doesn’t: have Jimmy on because TC is a Bravo show, and Jimmy obviously knows RHoNY which is obviously the inspiration for his “Real Housewives of Late Night”. So why waste everyone’s time asking him stupid RHoBH questions? Andy can get very OCD about his fixations sometimes, and it’s no small joke that a regular feature of the show is called “Here’s what I’m OBSESSED with this week”. He’s not kidding.

      • HD says:

        I didn’t catch WWHL. I think BH was being highlighted that week so that is probably why he was fixated on it. I wonder (hmmmmmmmm) why not focus on ATL? It seems a lot of the people that come on that show know the ATL franchise, especially Nene. I don’t know.

      Ya’ll can go ahead and crucify me…I am ready…I have a strange feeling, a gut feeling, that I am not going to like Bethanny this season. Ya’ll already know how I felt about her connnnnnnnnnnnnnnnstant complaining about working (read book signings, TV show appearances, skating, etc) instead of being with her baby and Jason and I thought of women all across this world that work in places that should be shut down by some goverment entity. This clip made me think of that. I hope if I am anti-B I am not kicked out of the group. You know me, I gotta keep it real and I will call her on her stuff. 🙂

      • Katie says:

        I cringed a little bit when she was talking to Jason’s parents, I get both sides but a sweeter/kinder B I was hoping to see with all things related to the new family. I hope that one little clip does not set the tone for the whole season and I get what HD is saying about the constant complaining and she took on a lot while filming. I want and need happy, the other HW shows are such downers.

    • Amber...RealWife says:

      Thanks Lynn.

      Looks like MUST SEE BRAVO TV!!

      I can already see how haters are going to go off on Bethenny setting boundaries! But it is true. No matter how much you love your in-laws, or the fact that Bethenny is estranged from her mom, it doesn’t automatically mean that you will travel and spend every holiday together.

      Sometimes, one does want to do stuff with their own tiny family. I am part of a trio also, and while we do spend major holidays together my family, (RH’s is in NY), sometimes I want us to do Halloween and other days without having to travel or expect guests and have to cook and entertain.

      It’s not being anti-social, spiteful or intentionally cruel. It is simply, trying to make your own memories. Although nothing can compare to the actual visit or holiday, pictures, anecdotes and emails/cards are a way to relay the story when the grandparents aren’t there.

      • LavaLady (formerly known as American Idiot) says:

        I agree with you Amber, boundaries must be set, and the earlier the better. When my husband, who is an only child, and Iwere first married, my in laws, who are lovely people, took to stopping by whenever they were in our area. It graduated to once a week, and even though I did not like it, I did not address it directly. It took one instance, when I was cleaning the house and did not stop for their visit, for them to realize they were intruding. I look back now and wish I had been more direct with them, because feelings were hurt and I was told I was rude, but I was a young, new bride, and not comfortable addressing the issue.

        • HD says:

          I agree. My problem is Bethanny does not set ENOUGH boundaries, ‘oh they want me to skate’, “I gotta do a book signing’, ‘I gotta sign skinny girl magarita bottles’, ‘I gotta sign copies of my book’. ‘I gotta hop on my Skinny girl bus and promote something’, ‘I gotta be on the Today show, Wendy Williams Show, the View’. She “has” to do something alllllllllll the time. If you don’t want to do it…here’s a thought…DON’T. Bethanny is in a position to call her own shots. It is her constant, acting like my arm was tied to skate on national TV and promote a book and give birth and be a newlywed that drove me crazy. If you don’t want to do these things, DON’T! You are already RICH so money cannot be it unless you just want more money. Not knocking her, just calling a spade a spade. If you choose to do something, hmmmmmm SHUTUP about it. If you really don’t *have* to do something to keep your lights on and food on the table and a roof over your head, chill out! If you want to REALLY set boundaries, DO IT!

  14. butterisafruit says:

    I’m not all that excited when it comes to the NY franchise. They can put it off till next summer. That’s how I feel now. Maybe when it starts I’ll change. If they dumped Kelly I might feel differently. However they didn’t. We all saw and Bravo was well aware how hideous she was towards Bethany, Sonja made it clear she wasn’t right in the mind. And
    still she’s back for another season. I don’t want to watch that. I had a difficult enough time watching her on Scary Island. I do not want to do it again. It’s too hard.

    I could turn in to watch Alex and Simon, but they don’t need Bravo anymore. They have a successful book, appearances and personalities in their own right. Actually they’re the only ones who friended me on facebook and twitter. I think they’re the nicest of them all.

    I’m enjoying the other HW locations I don’t feel the need for NY anymore. What will I be missing? Jill is still going to annoy me. She’s been around way too long and her selfishness is predictable. Romana would need a new bag of tricks and we know that’s not going to happen. She’s told Bethany off, shoved her minor child in a taxi alone, got drunk and renewed her vows. LuAnn is a bore and a fraud unless she’s spent the off season with the Dalai Lama don’t expect any changes. I never knew Sonja well enough to be vested in her. And the new girl..doesn’t grab me.

    I’m furious they kept Kelly, and where (for the reasons stated above) they want me to watch the same schtick from last season I am going to pass. Kelly is a real liability. I’m not putting myself through it again.

      Amen and Amen! I hear you. I have to say (and I have watched RH since day one in OC) NY is borrrrrrrrinnnggggggggg….flatline!! They don’t do anything. Bethanny kept the show going with her wit, etc, etc. The rest of them are sooooooooooo blah. Who cares.

      Jill-Don’t like…wait…hate!

      Luann…really? No one cares that she is dating the fuy from Friends. LOL!

      Ramona…okay but boring…

      Alex…way too normal. Not a knock against her she is just a normal acting human being. No drama, which is fine but not for good TV. Nothing against her. She is just a regular person that has a “normal” life.

      Kelly…crazy and she was the craziest with Bethanny so that’s out.

      Sonja…now she might be interesting. A cougar on the prowl. That might be fun but really? I’m not sure.

      The show flatlines without B. The “characters” are lame. The only entertainment I had that made me actually go to the computer and look for others that hated Jill was her feud with Bethanny. Other than that, who cares? These are just MY thoughts. 🙂 *This message has been approved by HD*

      I do accept offerings of chocolate- but Dark only please.

      Thank you for your interest in my marriagibility.

      you may all resume your activities now.

      OK, even though Illinois will have civil unions starting in July. Polygamy is still only happening in Utah, New Mexico, Arizona, Idaho, and Canada. You two can’t marry on the East Coast. You will have to travel to the Rockies and find break away sects from the Latter Day Saints. I may be able to put you in touch with some Islamics if you are willing to move to the Middle East and join a harem.

    Thanks for the head up on the Bethenney previews! I just love her show and the previews are fun. Who can’t identify with the whole in-law thing? Even if you love them. Now that I am a grandmother I can see both sides and even get Jason’s reaction.

    Now, for the RHONY? Kelly’s return is just another example of the producers not getting it. JZ’s recent antics make the mere thought of seeing her again nauseating. Ramoner? Ho Hum. Alex? Like her but not enough to suffer through the rest of them. Sonja was great on the island but most of the time she is soooo self-absorbed. Sadly, they missed the boat IMHO but my pals will no doubt talk me into watching. I always have IHJZ to keep me up on the latest.

    Oh, I love the idea of changing the name to The Andy Cohen Show. You are so right! This week I really liked the show and that Jimmy Fallon actually gave us fun information.

    Sniff. Sneeze. My head hurts.

    • Amber...RealWife says:

      I totally agree. I realized quite early that Andy was trying for a MervGriffin, MikeDouglas or DinahShore feel. The kitchzy set with retro chairs and styling was very 70’s + basement rec room. That plus Andy’s need to make the “HW’s After Hour Show” all about him, should be proof that the show needs to be renamed. It’s not WWHL, but more of “What’s Andy obsessession this week?”

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

    Jill Zarin had a lovely dinner the other day at the hot new eatery owned by Todd English. The food was good, but Jill thought the ovens were cool. That could be a problem for cooking. She absolutely refused to tweet what she ate.

    Jill is tweeting all of her products. She is promoting the bedding, the girdles, and her own blog, “I Love the Real Housewives.” This blog was published on word press and it is filled with information that is good. It is a good blog, not a bad blog. Jill’s mom is helping now. Gloria is asked very banal questions and she answers them. She is in a retirement community in Boca Raton, Florida, and had nothing better to do than help Jill create a love blog to Jill. Gloria enjoys giving advice to people who will listen to her. Jill is tweeting this new aspect of her blog to all of her fans on twitter. Thousands of people are rushing to the site to ask Gloria questions and discuss Jill’s opinions of the real housewives and of herself. Jill gives herself a lot of positive shout outs both on twitter and on her blog.

    Bobbie Zarin was in the Wall Street Journal online giving his wife’s girdle line a little attention. Bobbie told their reporter that when a woman crosses her legs in a Jill Zarin girdle you see lace rather than that elastic that holds the woman’s fat in place. The girdles come in many colors. Bobbie also told the WSJ reporter that he told Andy Cohen that the producers would not have enough time to edit all of the exciting film on his wife and the minor cast members of RHNYC. Andy listened to Bobbie and despite all of the dollars spent on marketing, Bravo delayed the show for more editing time. Bobbie told the reporter that the show is going to be spectacular and every one will see that he was right about the extra editing time all along. There was no comment from Andy Cohen.

    The end

    Q

    • Kansas Girl says:

      I had something to say till I read about Bobby. Now there is no comment from me either. Except this comment that says I have no comment. Which is perhaps a comment itself.

      • skogsstig says:

        From the WSJ:
        >>WSJ: What do you think about what’s happening over in Egypt?

        BZ: What can I say? It’s terrible world turmoil and I hate it. If you know me, I am all about peace and love. All I want is world peace. That’s all I pray for. They call me the ambassador of good will. Send me over there and I will fix it.<<

        Bobby, sweetheart. How about "fixing" your wife's social interactions first? Practice on something small before you think you can take on something global… Mr. Ambassador. Or you can help the "Ambassador of Wool." I'm sure she'd appreciate it.

        • quincyil says:

          I can criticize Bobby on the “I Love Jill Zarin” blog. Bobby shows a lack of understanding here. The ordinary Egyptian started this revolution. The ordinary Egyptian is going to be pro Palestinian. Your wife has photos on the net standing with Israeli soldiers. Her words are on the net supporting those soldiers. The Israelis Army is not respected by the ordinary Egyptian. It would be unwise for you to go to Egypt. You might end up in one of the prisons that Mubarak used to torture people who stood up for the Palestinians. You appear to be unaware of the dangers that are real on the Planet Earth. Take this from someone who knows how Middle Eastern people feel and think, Bobby and don’t try to pull this stunt. Stay home in NYC with your circle of friends. Let the governments deal with this crisis and pray for people who have suffered for 50 years even if you don’t understand that they too have suffered. Jill doesn’t understand, but she is not the brightest bulb.

          • skogsstig says:

            Bravo, Quincy! Beautifully said.
            The WSJ blogger ought to have realized that this topic didn’t really “belong” in the context of the “interview” in the first place – the frivolity of girdles in contrast to an (unarmed!) uprising of a suppressed people…. mind boggling.

          • Sparkles says:

            I do not think that Bobby literally meant that he could go to Egypt to fix the situation. This was an interview about girdles and a question about Egypt was inexplicably thrown in, so Bobby said something about wanting peace. I don’t know why the writer even asked in the first place.

    I am sorry if anyone is offended but I am a very big snob when it comes to the WSJ.
    The WSJ blog should not be confused with the WSJ financial publication. An interview about underware flogged by a Ho Wife would never make anything put a blog. I do not believe the blogers are on the payroll of the WSJ.

    http://www.refinery29.com/jill-zarin-skweez-couture.php

    I haven’t seen a good review yet!

    Jill Zarin announced she’ll by launching her own line of shape wear and leggings line called Skweez Couture. Besides the shudder-inducing name—couture and tummy tighteners don’t really go hand-in-hand—we’re also not sure if, in all honesty, we want to look like Zarin. “I’m obessed with looking my best, and I wear Spanx, but there’s no competition out there,” Zarin tells WWD. Truth: We do like her spitfire personality, but we think we’ll stick with Spanx.

    2 things
    1)I watched the video where jill flashes up every TV introduction showing the person saying Jill Zarin (pass the trash can). Then Jill finally speaks and says
    I am Jill Zarin and I am sure you know who I am ! Pass the trash can again if u r finished w/it. I Otherwise I will use her under ware box.

    2)I wanted to let u know Jill Zarin is starting her booK tour again. I kid u not! The tour is quite extensive % may touch ur area. This time it’s at Borders.

    • TLM says:

      Jill’s tweet in response to Jimmy Fallon reeked of desperation. The only thing more desperate would have been a general tweet asking people to please tell Jimmy they want to see her on his show. I am actually shocked that Fallon hasn’t had her on, since I know he does the RH parody. I thought that all the women had been on there at one time or another. Lynn was right – for some reason the impression he did when Andy asked him sounded nothing like Jill, even though in his parodies he sounded just like her and wore a wig that’s just like her hair. Jill is good at selling fabric in the store, but she has no clue how to market herself. If she wanted to get on Jimmy’s show she should have a publicist or agent try to get her booked. She isn’t Ellen trying to get on Oprah’s magazine cover. It isn’t cute or funny to see her publicly beg to get on Jimmy’s show. On the flip side, I don’t know why Jimmy would refuse to have her on, since I think she would be comedy gold for him. I think he should interview her dressed as her and talking like her.

    Jill’s tweet~~~ Dress is Herve Leger and am wearing skweez couture to SUCK me in. (@jillzarin)http://yfrog.com/h4fjkuj

    Jill,
    I guess we’re going to hear about “skweez” for a loooong time. Why brag about a girdle sucking you in? When the girdle comes off the blubber is still there. It’s like having a 9th grade education but wearing a Harvard diploma around your neck.
    Once again….fail.

    • HD says:

      LOL! I don’t think everyone needs to wear that designer. It seems (just to me) that that particular style of dress is for someone whose body is banging in all the right places like a Kim K or Beyonce or someone like that.

      I thought her body looked great.

    • TLM says:

      Is this a Bethenny emulation? For several years now, Jill has been wearing garish, embellished things. Now all of a sudden, she’s doing Leger, which Bethenny used to wear (even she has mostly moved on from Leger, saying that “Both Kim Kardashian and I have been wearing way too much of this stuff.”). I do think anything is an improvement over the halucious (that’s a little Yiddish for Jill) getups Jill has been wearing since the start of the show. I am surprised she was able to get into this Leger, but I am curious to see what it looks like on profile. Anyone else wonder if she’s following Naturally Thin to lose weight? ;)~

    • NYCer says:

      I love Jimmy Fallon- he settled down in the aftershow and told some great stories about Paul McCartney, Robert De Niro, and Jerry Seinfeld.
      Just because IHJZ, I want to point out that he did NOT pick Jill as favorite. He struggled to answer when the caller asked him to do an impression of his fave, and Andy prompted him to do Denise from RH of Late Night- a character that he described as a compilation of JZ and Bethenny. Then he did a few secs of a JZ impression.
      I LOVE that he loves Top Chef, and was so knowledgeable. I Loved that Andy cleared up the rumor about Montag, who is predictably using Andy’s comment for more publicity. She disgusts me.
      A few days late to the party, but I was just reading Lynn’s latest and thought: I wonder what she had to say about WWHL. I’ll be taping tonight’s WWHL with Peter and Cynthia- something tells me he won’t hold back. Can’t stay up to watch it bc I have inlaws here who get up at 6:30 am. Take that Bethenny- 4 out of the last 6 valentine’s days. 😉 I haven’t watched the clip yet, but I suspect I’ll be siding with B.
