I Hate Jill Zarin The Real Housewives of Atlanta – Extra!
The Real Housewives of Atlanta finished their season with a two part reunion show but missing was the typical “lost footage” episode. Unlike New Jersey and Beverly Hills, the Atlanta Housewives didn’t have an extended, directors cut episode, I guess the tour bus argument didn’t qualify.
Tonight Andy Cohen hosted a first for a Housewives Series, an “extra” episode hidden disguised as an episode of Watch What Happens Live. An hour long recap with some never before seen scenes introduced by Cohen along with snippets of the Atlanta Housewives appearances on Watch What Happens Live. Sounds like fun, right? Maybe we’ll see some lost footage after all, right?
Well the show as the biggest snoozefest we’ve seen on Bravo in a long time! There was nothing we hadn’t seen before, Andy’s claims that we’ll see things “never before seen on TV” was in fact, true. What Andy forgot to mention was that all of those “extra” clips have been available on BravoTV.com for weeks and months..in some cases even years.
Andy’s so proud that he allowed his guest NeNe and his caller Kim Zolciak to scream argue and yell at each other on live television? I hated watching that when it originally aired and I certainly didn’t need to see it again.
Montage clips of each of the Atlanta housewives were shown with Andy’s short commentary in between. Again, all things we’ve seen before and most of the focus was on the Housewives appearances on Andy Cohen’s show Watch What Happens Live.
What Andy had been building excitement on all hour was what he called the casting tapes, which was just Sheree, NeNe and Kim interacting while looking at homes. It lasted about 90 seconds and as I was watching I could’t believe that this was the footage that Cohen had been touting all night.
The entire show was a complete waste of time. We saw very little from the actual show, no lost footage, no new scenes that we hadn’t seen already, just rerunning the same snippets we’ve already seen. Again we were forced to listen as Kim sings “Google Me” and “Tardy For The Party” while Miss Lawrence sang “Closet Freak”.
Cynthia’s segment was short and sweet, her time on Watch What Happens Live was limited to just two appearances to draw clips from. I did notice that they were sure to include Cynthia contradicting her new husband when he said their marriage was “good”. Cynthia said, “we’re doing well, working towards good”. For newlyweds, that isn’t exactly what you expect to hear? I know the first year of marriage is hard but where’s the love and passion of newlyweds?
Andy is still hurt that Kim lied to him about being pregnant. She appeared on his show on a Sunday denying that she was with child but the following morning a tabloid magazine made the official announcement.
Get over it Andy! Kim made a few bucks announcing she was having the love child of an Atlanta Falcon, don’t try to tell us you wouldn’t have done the same if you were having Kroy’s baby.
The only set of clips that made me smile was Phaedra Parks with her “Everybody knows”. Leaving out her ridiculous comments that generalized about white people, she actually has a pretty good sense of humor.
If you missed the Atlanta Extras, you didn’t miss a thing. Promise! Bye Atlanta, see you next season!
In case you need more proof that Jill Zarin has not changed one bit, she and her sister appeared on Don Imus’ radio show. Remember that Don Imus doesn’t watch Real Housewives so he’s going only by what Jill tells him. Reading from the notes in front of him, Imus asks Jill how she got on the show and then asked her if she was the one who got Bethenny on the show. We know that Bobby Zarin is the one who got Bethenny on the show yet Jill continues to take credit without mentioning her husband at all.
None of us should be surprised at Jill, she was there to promote her book (eyeroll) and the Real Housewives of New York. She just can’t stop talking about Bethenny. Jill, take my advice, get a hobby, go to sleep, make some lemonade…just get off Bethenny’s back!
Jill Zarin with her Sister Lisa Wexler on Imus, apparently their mother was scheduled to join them but refuses to fly until March 1st, this is what the sisters told Don Imus. How does that work? She can’t fly until March 1st, beginning when? I don’t think that is a Jewish law, is it? Is it a superstition? I thought as long as she didn’t wear white chiffon on Christmas day, she was safe? Can someone explain this to me?
You can watch Jill and Lisa on Don Imus here:
Jill tells Imus that her friendship with Bethenny was a “fake friendship”. If that’s true, what was all this about at the reunion Jill Zarin? More lies? Watch Jill beg for Bethenny’s “fake” friendship back… “No bullshit Bethenny, I miss you”.
Maybe Jill read Bethenny’s “no, no, no” when she was asked about her friendship with Jill. I don’t want to have to search all over the internet for all the digs at each other, personally I prefer a Twitter war, its much easier to follow, what do you say ladies? Have at it!
Andy Cohen stuck his foot in his mouth too, he was on Morning Joe yesterday and slammed the little kids who sang at the end of the Academy Awards, take a look:
Andy pronounced himself “Jackhole Of The Week” for these comments and apologized publicly for his idiotic remarks. As he should! That is the first sensible thing he has done all week.
But Andy’s not done, he slams Mr. Piers Morgan for his interviewing skills and for letting Charlie Sheen off the hook and possibly even encouraging Sheen’s erratic behavior.
Really Andy? Really? Whether Piers was right or wrong, you Mr. Cohen have no room to talk. You think Piers should have called Sheen out for his behavior? Maybe Piers Morgan should have refused to interview the “Two and a Half Men” star? Its wrong to promote the crazy, these stars need help, rather than giving them a platform for their insanity, maybe he would have served Sheen better by trying to get him some help or suggesting counseling?
I have just two words for you Andy Cohen: Kelly Bensimon. *Allegedly*
Until Next Time…
