I Hate Jill Zarin Real Housewives of Atlanta Extra

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…

    Goodness, am I the first to comment. Guess what, I still hate Jill Zarin.

  2. jeang says:

    That gala fundraiser last night blew Jill and Dina “fundraiders” out of the water both with donations for auction, money raised, fabulous venue (fountainbleau) and amount of notable real celebrities. Jill and Dina, dont try messing with Lea, she is the real deal of fundraising.

    • Amber...RealWife says:

      Yes, I became a fan! She is definitely a money maker, as she worked that crowd for her charity. Lea is a strong woman who doesn’t pull punches, as observed on WWHL! I loved it! LOL Cristy didn’t know what hit her, as the call was most unexpected and the allegations became truth. SMH Did she really think she could lie, and not be exposed?

      • Night Light says:

        That call from Lea was the BEST! It really knocked the wind out of Cristy. Whew. I had to sit up. The only thing I would of asked Lea to do is before she hung up is have her ask Cristy did she pay before she crashed the fundraiser or once she once invoiced? But Marysol pretty much answered that when she said you typically pay before attending. Cristy and Larsa are in for a rude awakening and are going to have to eat some humble pie before this is over.

        • jeang says:

          For sure on the reunion Lea will take no prisoners and get the questions out there than the wuss andy will not ask.

          • DJ Fruit Loops says:

            ok now taht you guys are actually watching do you think its as boring as everyone ese was saying
            I dont
            i love the show
            and that charity thing with all the celebs was so fun

  3. JenFromCincy says:

    Jill’s biggest problem is that she thinks that because she has a bad memory and needs her “notes”, that the rest of us do as well.

    You can’t change your story as many times as she does and truly expect people to believe a word you say.

    Pretty soon she’ll run out of people to turn to that aren’t onto her, and mayhaps then she finally drop off the media radar.

    • Amber...RealWife says:

      I think it’s selective memory, mixed with a bit of martyrdom. She is always the giving victim who was used, taken advantage of and slighted in all her scenarios. That’s Jill for you, always a giver. That’s why the FabricKing aka BAAAWWBBY loves her so. 😉

  4. Sha2000 says:

    Okay I know few of us are watching Miami but I wanted to report that I finally got my HW cross-over…Kim Z on RHOM but it was only a greeting.

    Still want to see the countess spend a day with T ; )

    • Amber...RealWife says:

      Yeah she really was “gay” for a minute there wasn’t she? She was hanging in Miami with the DJ, going to events… she was “out” for a second, til she got the call of the wild! LOL In her TH she said she was chasing *i#k since she came out of the womb and I believe it!

    • DJ Fruit Loops says:

      did you notice that WIGS date for the night was Dj Tracy Young

  5. HD says:

    I had the lost footage on but I was reading a book at the time as well. Nothing made me really look up so I guess I didn’t miss much of anything.

    This is the first season that I have not watched a RH franchise. I don’t feel like I missed anything. I watched Charlie Sheen which was mind blowing. Bless his soul.

    I am lost on why Jill keeppppppppsssssssssss pushing this book. If people wanted it, they would have bought it already. Now that she has a section on bullying that doesn’t make me want it at all.

    • Sha2000 says:

      Wish I saw the interview, I’ll look online. Was never a a Charlie Sheen fan & I can’t see the appeal even when he was young & sober. He really needs help judging on what comes out of his mouth!

      Re: J pushing her book. We own a small bookseller business for many years.
      We buy our books directly from the publisher and some sell rapidly and some literally have sat in inventory for years, some can be returned for credit, it depends. My educated (being a bookseller) guess would be that she herself has purchased a large inventory of books and needs to sell it, returning them to the publisher ( if an option) could prove embarrassing because she’s the author. As I said though this is only my best guess. Also if she had bought a large enough amount of books she could drive up the title on or towards the best seller list, like for example Sarah Palin did with that group that bought it in bulk to give away , so ” best sellers” can be affected by one source.

      • Sha2000 says:

        Oh! Plus the publishers usually offer credit not a refund…which would also be problematic for her since she obey sells one title.

        Hope that explains it.

        Have a good day HD!

        • Sha2000 says:


          Damn auto correct!

          • HD says:

            That explains a lot. I would imagine (and this is just my thinking and not anything that I know) that real authors don’t own tons of copies of their own books. I just cannot see Stephen King or Maya Angelou with boxes of their books to sale and ship out to people. Do they do that? Doesn’t Jill have a company behind her pushing her and stuff. Why would she buy her own book with her connections, “fame”, etc.?

            • LavaLady (formerly known as American Idiot) says:

              My good friend wrote a children’s book several years ago, and had it professionally published. She had no agent or publicist, however. She did all the marketing herself, and would always have boxes of the book in her trunk. Several years later, she is still going to book fairs, author events, etc., trying to sell more copies.

            • Amber...RealWife says:

              So it wouldn’t appear to be such a bomb! The numbers don’t lie, but she does. *Allegedly* LOL

              In order to make her bomb, I mean book, look more successful, she may have purchased hundreds of books she thought she’d be able to sell at her store, website and speaking events.

              • Sha2000 says:

                Well if my guess above is correct & she has a lot on hand, it could be because she is known & thought the would sell online & in the stores & she over did it with the quantity she has on hand. A easy mistake to make especially if you are new to the book business. It could also apply to any retail item; her experience in the fabric biz should have taught her that…chalk it up to excitement as a new author (again if my theory is correct).
                The book business is not what it was when we started. We sell very specific educational books aka “study guides”, back in the day when we started, Amazon was not in existence & since our titles are guides to achieving a specific certification and thus career, our books could not be found in Barnes & Noble…for example we’d order 10 to 12 cases of one title & it would fly off the shelves, fast forward to now; 2 to 4 cases are ordered of a best seller & it will move out slowly. It’s hard to compete with Amazon to sell our books but I have to admit that I love to purchase anything & everything from them. Also the world has changed & down-loadable books are what a lot of people want. If Amazon can kick Borders butt, imagine how hard it is for people selling one title like Jill.

  6. FlowerPower (no longer StillaWallflower) says:

    Don’t have time to read the blog this morning, but wanted to say I’m LOVING the pictures. Your blog was fantastic already, Lynn, the photos just take it to a whole new level. Thanks for all your hard work!!!!

  7. boston02127 says:

    Great blog Lynn~~Thanks!
    Jill just keeps getting more & more sickening.

    • vilzvet says:

      I could not believe my ears hearing Jill describe the friendship as a fake TV one. And Lisa to infer that Bethenny completely owes her own show and success to JILL! Imus is completely clueless, he called Bethenny a bitch for “stabbing Jill in the back”, oh really?? He should not have people on his program when he has not done his research!

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        And that Gloria was some kind of substitute supermom for Bethenny calling her every day!

        • Nancy says:

          Don’t forget that Jill kept Bethenny from being homeless!

        • DJ Fruit Loops says:

          well that part may actually be true as we have heard Bethenny say that she heard from Gloria a lot a long time ago
          and Bethenny has said in the past that she loved Bobby and teh rest of teh family
          the thing is Bethenny WAS genuine about her feelings for the Zarins
          Jill was the one that was fake

  8. boston02127 says:

    Did anyone else watch 20/20 last night? Did you see Charlie Sheen’s nose? One nostril was hugh. I couldn’t stop looking at it even thou it was grossing me out.

    • Sha2000 says:

      HD said she did above. I want to find it online today.

      • HD says:

        I didn’t notice his nose, I was too busy staring at his mouth and listening to the strange madness coming from it.

        Do you remember that guy on Sex In the City (the series) that dated Carrie and he was kind of manic and would jump from conversation to conversation he would be talking about eating then start talking about playing an instrument and none of it seemed to make any sense? That is who Charlie Sheen reminded me of but on a higher level.

    • HD says:

      I went back to look. It is huge. Poor Charlie. Now his kids are gone and honestly I don’t even think that will stop him for now. It might make things worse.

  9. boston02127 says:

    A professor at my school has the Measles. 45 people were exposed. I can’t go back without proof that I’ve had a Measles shot.

    • Sha2000 says:

      Aw! Hope you are okay.

      • boston02127 says:

        I called my grandmother, she thinks I’ve had the shot. I have to call the family doctor’s office that we use to go to at 9 AM.

        • Sha2000 says:

          I’m 47, if you are around my age you should have had it long ago.

          (yuck I hate to see my age in black & white)

          • boston02127 says:

            Sha—I’m 19. I didn’t want to say in my last post that the doctor I’m calling is a pediatrician! LOL

            • Kansas Girl says:

              I’ve got 10 years on one of you and mumble-mumble on the other. I’d hate to have to prove that I’m immune to measles now! That was WAY in the past. On a side note, my childhood pediatrician died a few months ago and I didn’t recognize his name right off, but recognized his picture. I had totally forgotten about him. He made house calls! From the obit I learned that we shared a birthday, which I don’t think I knew before. A blast from the past!

              If you do get measles, as I remember the cure is chocolate malts and egg nogs!!!

            • LavaLady (formerly known as American Idiot) says:

              Don’t worry, B, I am sure you had the shot. You are about the same age as my daughter, and at that time kids were given MMR vacines, measles, mumps, rubella. Keep us updated.

              • boston02127 says:

                Thanks. My grandmother is quite sure I’ve had the shot. I’m a twin, when we were little my grandmother came to most of our doctor appts to help my mother out with 2 babies.

                • Kellita says:

                  You’re my daughter’s age, @Boston. You probably got the shot at 15mos and kindergarten. I’m also a Peds RN, and that’s what the MMR schedule used to be for kids your age.

                • ramonacoaster says:

                  I needed my vaccine records too and just when I was about to give up after looking for a week in file cabinets – I decided to look into my old baby book sitting in the attic & there it was. Just a suggestion.

            • Sha2000 says:

              Boston, I’m jealous !

              I’m 17 in my head though, seriously : )

            • twoile says:

              @Boston It is my impression that all college students must prove they have had the vaccine in order to enroll….you may already have done so & forgot. UM gr8 school. Amherst :0)

  10. Kansas Girl says:

    Thanks for the Wondermark, Lynn! Love him.

    Jill really has not much of anything going on in her life, does she! She keeps rehashing old news. Let it go, Jill!

  11. VAgirl (formerly VABroad) says:

    Thanks, Lynn for recapping and saving me from wasting my time. Love the addition of the pictures, too.
    We’ve had a small outbreak of measles in the schools here. Makes me wonder why when I thought all children were to get a measles shot and show proof when enrolling. I guess it’s not 100% effective all of the time. If I remember from my kids, I think they also had to get a booster around the 6th or 7th grade – either for measles or mumps or both. Hope you’re OK, B. I’m sure you will be.
    Lastly a message for Jill. Your constant rehash of the same issues has gotten really old and tired. Please find a new worthwhile focus in your life. ‘Nuff said.

    • Olivia says:

      But this is all that Jill has going for her. Without RHONY who really cares how many “step and repeat” runways she sashays down with her hands on hips? Answer: NOBODY!

      Can’t stand Imus but even he seemed somewhat puzzled as to why these two morons were sitting there. Probably due to his wife watching these shows. Could not figure out who was more irritating, Lisa or Jill, constantly talking over one another and praising “Mommy” for “saving” Bethenny from bouts of depression. Crapola with a capital C!

      As I see it, both Jill and Bethenny are each consumed with the “fame bug” and though they may have formed some sort of bond through their appearance on RHONY they each had their own agenda going for them. Just so happens that it was Bethenny who was “tapped” for bigger and better things via Bravo and Jill could not deal with being pushed aside. This is what led to the “feud” that erupted as it could have easily been Jill who outshone Bethenny and whatever “friendship” they once had pretty much dissolved.

      I don’t think any of these “friendships” are real including the one that so many desired taking place between Bethenny, Alex and Ramona. These liaisons are based on the narrative drawn up by Bravo to find some common thread to bind the cast.

      My favorite piece in the Imus interview was Jill maintaining that Bravo was so taken with some piece in a magazine they saw of her that they called her with an invite to appear on the show. Bullsh*t! From what I have read these women “audition” for these shows since an “open call” is placed as an ad for anyone interested in appearing. Listening to Jill you are asked to believe that Bravo was so “captivated” by her magazine article they practically broke down her door to get her to sign on.

      The simple fact that both Lisa and Jill were “gushing” over the likes of Sean Hannity of all people made me gag. Trying to sell a book that is well over a year old also suggests that the lack of sales probably cost them a fortune.

      • DJ Fruit Loops says:

        “I don’t think any of these “friendships” are real including the one that so many desired taking place between Bethenny, Alex and Ramona. These liaisons are based on the narrative drawn up by Bravo to find some common thread to bind the cast. ”

        No i dont believe that as they all saw each other off season
        Bethenny has even said on other shows that she still see em but not as much as before due to all her other commitments
        And i know for a fact that Alex & Simon adore Bethenny and Ramona

  12. AZ Girl says:

    Thank you Lynn. Love the recap. I did not understand why Gloria could not fly until March 1 either. Imus is fool. I have a feeling Deirdra (his wife) may have had some imput into the questions he asked. Lisa really disappointed me.

    • LavaLady (formerly known as American Idiot) says:

      I agree wholeheartdly, WCW and AZ, Don was feed questions by his wife. He said he never watched the show. But he asked about Bethenny twice and knew the new season was put on hold.

  13. WindyCityWondering says:

    Thanks Lynn for the recap with pictures!
    After listening to the Imus interview a few things struck me as odd. One, Jill giving so much credit to her brilliant sister the author of the book Don wasn’t even interested in talking about. Two, watching Lisa while Jill was tawking/lying – the tells are there and Lisa was uncomfortable most of the interview. Three, Don’s wife obviously watches RHNY and gave him the Bethenny question! Jill by saying they were not friends has now taken away any of the good part of their story! Four, Jill couldn’t keep the story straight on why RHNY was pulled from Bravo’s schedule! Fifth, the interview was shamefully full of shilling themselves and Imus wasn’t interested in interviewing either of them!
    This interview doesn’t even rate a blip on the IHJZ radar – I still hate her!

    • AZ Girl says:

      And I LOVED Imus’ reaction to the scarf that Gloria supposedly knitted for him. He looked in bag and reacted like it was a dead animal.

  14. Adgirl says:

    I almost lost my cheerios when I saw that horrifying photo at the end of your blog. What the hell is that? A Yeti in a fur bikini?

  15. WindyCityWondering says:

    While I am not watching RHoM, I did watch WWHL. I loved the phone in calling Christy out on her charitable lying and she reminds me of Kyle with the constant hair play! The other one has had majorly bad plastic surgery that just can’t disguise the fact that she is ugly – and no she doesn’t look like Adrienne! Her mom is frightfully ugly too – and it is so Andy to latch on to her – (like Grandma Wrinkles and Jiggy) and he is now one freak short of a circus!

    • Amber...RealWife says:

      I found her lips comical! LOL They look swollen like a crying lip or something. She kind of looks like a muppet. A lighter Janet!

      As for AC well RingMaster is another description that joins, VP, MC, Pimp, Jackhole etc.

    • DarkSonnet says:

      Did you forget Kelly? Circus complete?

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        I apologize for the omission of the biggest, batty Bravo freak of all! In my defense, I don’t think Andy likes her or would want her in his personal circus collection.

  16. Olivia says:

    Now that he has time on his hands perhaps Charlie Sheen could be considered as the next Beverly Hills housewife.

    Since the “drama” on that series is so manufactured it might be a good idea to focus on Charlie and his two “goddesses” romping all over Hollywood. Instead of the usual Botox and cooking parties, we can accompany them on their cocaine buys, broken furniture replacements, and court appearances. With the Maloofs living right next door, a casual “drop in” might be in order as Paul injects more plastic into Charlie’s face as the goddesses kickbox with Adrienne.

    Nothing spells “success” as much as Charlie in his talking head segments pontificating on what he means by being “drugged on Charlie”. Judging from what he has said so far, he is making Kelly B. look like a Phi Beta Kappa in the reasoning department.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Charlie Sheen appears to still have a long way down before he hits bottom. Those who have tried to help him have been ridiculed and pushed away. Had he gone to rehab immediately after the briefcase incident, he may still be on a hit tv show and had the support of the network/fans. While I am happy his sons have been removed from his home, sadly the fact that he wants to continue his ranting/ravings instead of getting whatever help he needs to be a good father tells me this story will not end well.

    • Adgirl says:

      I don’t know if Bravo can broadcast any Charlie Sheen dinner parties since most of the guests will be naked porno actresses. Are jello shots dinner anyway?

      I think much of CS’s rantings are drug induced. My ex became addicted to a dangerous drugs and displayed delusional thinking. When he sobered up the crazy thinking went away.

      • Olivia says:

        Well, since most of these “housewives” are filmed with their bubbies bouncing all over the place, it will be difficult to differentiate the porn stars wardrobes (or lack thereof) from what Tamra may be wearing on any given day.

        The excess drinking won’t be unique since Ramona is rarely seen without a glass in her hand and Vicki is often seen running to the ladies room for a good cry after an evening of chug a lug.

        We’ve done the furniture bashing with Teresa “table flipping” after a fun evening of playing “prostitution whore”. And the DUIs just seem to be a standard fare for some of these “stars”.
        As for porn, let’s not forget Danielle.

        Charlie may find himself in some good company. Not a big stretch there in saying some comparisons.

        • Adgirl says:

          You’re right. We probably won’t notice any difference. Laurie Peterson attended a party at the Playboy mansion.
          The Curtin girls will gladly move in with Charlie. They can bring their my little kitty pasties.

  17. Adgirl says:

    Kim Z was on RHOM? Of course she was.

    The pregnancy/new mom coach that was on Bethenny’s show last season? She is getting a show. And the wedding planner? He is getting a web show.

    I said this yesterday:

    I’m starting to feel like Bravo is some Appalachian holler with all of the
    inter-breeding of their shows.

    It’s like they product place their own staff into shows.

  18. @tweatcyn says:

    Boston, I feel your pain. In college I had to prove I had the measles or the shot or couldn’t return for the next semester. I was pissed off because I had the disease in childhood so could not prove immunity without a blood test I couldn’t afford to pay for, or a shot. I had the shot and it hurt like hell.

    Lynn, I too love the new glam look of the site. As said above, it brings a great blog already to a whole new level.

    Re KKB’s photo- no words.

  19. kbinldo says:

    Color me (not) surprised that Jill’s mom refuses to fly before March 1. Remember how bitchy she was about cars, so Bobby had to go out & buy a new one to pick her up in? And how she *STILL* bitched about it?

    BTW, I love the cartoon with rock, paper, & scissors. LOL!!!!! But you’re right—the only one keeping the Jill-Bethenny feud alive is Jill. MOVE ON ALREADY!

    • boston02127 says:

      Jill keeps the feud alive because she has nothing else in her life. Nothing, period. She’s a lazy bore. She acts as if her life is great and so many people see her life as pathetic. She too transparent. I’m sure Jill spends more time on her couch/bed than she does living the fab life she claims to have.

      When asked about Bethenny she could have given many answers such as, “I’m not going to go there” or “we don’t talk much but I’m happy for her”. She could of answered the Bethenny question in many polite classy ways. But that’s not Jill. She’s rude & classless.

      If Jill spent her time trying to be creative as she does spending time being hateful and mean, maybe she’d have a brand of her own. Not taking the lazy way out by copying Spanx and bedding or pushing a lame book down people’s throats.

      Little does Jill realize, her claim to fame is being a bully to Bethenny. And she keeps feeding on it. That’s all she’s got and she’s too stupid to realize it and to shut up.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Without Bethenny Jill would have nothing to talk about! How do you keep a feud going when the other person has clearly moved on? Oh, I keep forgetting the moldy book….I am waiting for the wallpaper and bed linen line using the cover as art!

      • Olivia says:

        The national economy is living through severe times. The fact that this moron could tweet that Bobby sent an excessive amount of flowers to her for Valentine’s Day is a tribute to her greed and indifference. How much money was uselessly spent to make her “feel good” when in a few days those flowers would be dead?

        Why not forward that money to a local Food Bank to aid those who are down on their luck? Why not offer to clothe a couple of kids whose parents are unable to do so because of job loss? Why not see to it that the elderly are given some form of fuel assistance that this government is threatening to take away in order to ensure the likes of Jill and those who travel in her rarified circle are not taxed like the rest of us peons?

        She is a narcissistic, selfish, and self absorbed human being who would rather have us “envy” her good fortune rather than share it in any positive way. Spending $16,000 on one handbag is an example of the sheer stupidity of this woman.

        She makes me sick. And Bravo, rather than entertaining us with the likes of “the rich and famous”, is merely displaying the greed that surrounds these idiots as the rest of the nation finds itself in dire straits.

        • Amber...RealWife says:

          First HW to take charity work seriously is LeaBlack. I mean this lady works hard for underpriviledged kids who get in trouble. She raises thousands in her event where she puts everyone to work in order to get the most money for her charity. Donations included RollsRoyce and other cars, jewelry, trips etc. to be auctioned off. She is one crafty lady to get folks to donate and buy in this economy. I will clap for that.

          • JKW says:

            I agree, she kicked butt on that charity. Besides all the auction items it was $500 to attend. It sounded like people actually gave more from her comments. It was nice to see someone actually do something great that didn’t end up in a big scene or an argument. She didn’t address it at the event….just that we will invoice them. I thought that was great.

            • jeang says:

              In addition to their major gala fundraisers they also hosted huge fundraiser for Obama and Nancy pelosi and Harry Reid were asking for their help as well. This couple get almost everything including entertainers for free so most money goes to who the fundraiser is thrown for. This couple doesnt sound like anything that is shown on any Bravo housewives show! Jill presumably gave only $5,000 to her own fab charity event and her events both in nyc and hamptons, looked like a county fair compared to last nights event.

              • JKW says:

                I have to agree, it was a classy event,…although I will forgive her for the democratic fund raisers. HA. I guess to some it may be boring but it was nice to see an event for a good cause with no table flipping, arguing over signage, people showing up with body guards or any of the bullshit of the other HW fund raisers.

    Okay, I’ve been really busy lately, so somehow, I have missed each & every Charlie Sheen interview! I know, that sounds impossible, right? Is there some show he *HASN’T* been on? I have satellite radio, so overnight, I learned he was on Howard Stern & Alex Bennet yesterday, as well as GMA, Piers Morgan, & Today. Now he’s on Twitter (another good reason for me not to go there too often, I suppose).

    • Sha2000 says:

      Me too, here it is though not to late to watch:

      Charlie Sheen Interview.

      • Amber...RealWife says:

        OMG I watched the entire interview! It was like a car wreck, I couldn’t look away. Thanks Sha, that was enough Charlie info to last a lifetime, or at least next week/next scandal!

        • kbinldo says:

          It’s beyond the “point & laugh along with the drunk guy” stage. It’s to the “wtf, why hasn’t anyone gotten him help yet” stage. I’m scared of where he’ll end up if he doesn’t get help.

          • twoile says:

            You can lead a horse 2 H2O but u can’t make them drink. It certainly looks like there is a wake of “fallen friends/family members”. who have tried 2 help but CS dismisses them & it (rehab). It is a very sad situation 4 CS & those who love him, my thoughts r 4 his loved ones b/c CS will do what he will, the disease is making all his decisions now & it doesn’t look like there will b a good outcome.

  22. WindyCityWondering says:

    Donald Trump was just on Regis and Kelly and said that NeNe makes Omarosa look nice. He also said he would put Charlie Sheen on Apprentice in a heartbeat because it is all about the ratings!

  23. Jill doesn’t make any sense. She spent most of last year CLAIMING that she wanted to be friends with Bethenny again. Now she is saying that they had a fake TV friendship. She is probably angry that Bethenny has no interest in being friends with her or maybe Jill thinks that keeping this “feud” alive is the only way to keep her relevant. Jill will never change, she is a bitter, vindictive, mean and spiteful woman.

  24. Adgirl says:

    According to Perez Charlie Sheen now tweets.
    One of his first tweets:

    “Just got invited to do the Nancy Grace show… I’d rather go on a long road trip with Chuck Lorre in a ’75 Pacer….”

    OK, he is funny.

      Glad to hear you got your answer but $25 for a copy of your vaccinations? Did you request your records be sent to your current doctor and are you current on all the booster shots? Sorry about the nosy questions, that is the mom in me coming out!

    • kbinldo says:

      Lucky you! I had to get re-vaxxed when I went to law school. I showed up with the little book of vaccines my mom had dutifully carted around with her when I was little, which showed that I had had some form of measles when I was a baby. Funny how that little book was good enough to get me into school & undergrad, but not law school. Nope, had to have a copy from my doctor (lolz–they were stuck in storage by that time) or get stuck again. I was not happy.

      • Sha2000 says:

        That’s why having that info available online would be so much easier. We do our banking online so why not? We have our medical history there hould be rushed into an emergency room too.

  26. BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

    Good day everyone~thank you again for being the angels you all are.
    I finally watched BEA & I loved it. Saw on full episodes that actually had the new episode on it. Left a comment but I am sure it won’t post for days. Anyway I understand totally what she feels like. Allan is country from KY & I am rock n roll from the city.
    But it works for a lot of people. My parents were the same only papa was from NYC & mama from Nashville.
    They both should have learned about life & love to say the least before having children.
    I was scared to death of my papa all my life because he was a mean selfish drunk & my brother & 2 sisters still don’t talk to mama because she allowed him to do this because that was what people did back then. They beat their children when they felt like it & told us constantly that they came first then us..
    I am the only one who speaks to mama because I forgave them because they were ignorant & alcoholics. I am an alcoholic as well. To this day my mama cannot understand why my brother & sisters won’t speak to her. Sometimes I don’t want to see or speak to her. She is sometimes sweet & kind & sometimes mean as hell.
    She gets mad & didn’t speak to me for over a year over something she did to me..
    So I am saying again how thankful I am to have all of you. My hubby Allan is the only one here who knows everything & it was bad. So he forgives mama but she has treated him really bad at times as well. My hubby forgives everyone & believes in Jesus & God. I don’t believe in anything yet…
    Thank You All
    I Love You All Lynn, Family & Q & All Who Post & All Who Read.
    Also going for mamogram today. Last of yearly tests for all us lucky women. The mamo makes me the most scared because I had breast cancer in 96 with radiation treatments so every year it’s a little scary but I will check back in later. Won’t get all the test results for I don’t know. Sometimes they are quick & sometimes a week or more. Thank you all for being my therapy & making feel loved again.

    • Sha2000 says:


      all really you need is to believe in your own spirit and goodness and always keep compassion towards other in the for front of your mind & I can tell that you DO from here! If there is a God that’s what they would hope for you too. You are a good person that is all that’s required in life.

      Stay strong & keep positive and the rest will follow, including continuing to staying healthy and your mom too…wishing you a great day,

          That’s ok sweet Susan~You can call me Patty or BaaBee
          pronounced Baby~or Bee Bee~thanks for the chuckle~
          the reason I got into all about my life is because I feel Bethenny & myself had very similar upbringings & until you have lived that life it’s very hard to understand.
          We of course only were middle class but I feel her pain & wrote down that book someone mentioned about mean mother’s. I just picked up Carrie Fisher’s book Wishful Drinking. Anything for a laugh & someone who’s been there. Love to you Susan..

      So sorry about your parents and your childhood 😦 Reading your story makes me think about my childhood and some what appreciate it.

      • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

        Thank You All Sweet Peas~
        It’s still hard sometimes & I get jealous of people who have such great families but I do appreciate Allan & everyone here who have helped me more than I could imagine. It’s hard to talk to most people here because they are very religious & cannot believe that I just don’t believe in anything yet. When I lived in NYC we took whatever anyone thought for what it was & that it was their business to believe what they wanted & nobody cared really. As long as you treat people with love & respect & dignity it shouldn’t matter.
        Thanks again California~

    I just love how Jill & Kelly cannot stop talking about Bethenny!! With Bethenny gone from RH they will actually have to work at keeping our attention.

    How many street interviews about undies and BJs-4-Jewelry buying expeditions will we have to endure this year? They don’t do anything but fight with Bethenny.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Wondering how much Bethenny bashing had to be edited out of their conversations…..they really don’t have anything else in common or that interesting to talk about.

  28. WindyCityWondering says:

    Must confess – I didn’t think twice about skipping the RHoA “special” WWHL last night. Glad Bravo didn’t put together a lost footage or a director’s cut of the tour bus from yell/Miami funhouse.

    Where is WSL? Is it me or does it seem some of the regular posters aren’t here lately. Did I miss something recently. I know there were differing opinions about RHOM, but it seems different lately. Has anyone else noticed that?

  32. Mimisfbay says:

    Woo, lots happening on my fav site. Love the pix and the links. Jill on Imus…what to say? Her aside to the camera with “that’s why I love this show” was a HELLO moment for me. I hated her then and hate her now. Ooooooooo thanks for adding the link to her hug with Bethenny and vicious comment about Alex. Memories caught on tape; what could be better. Ta Da.

    Loved the new Bethenney show and that she shares those good and bad moments with us. Carol is the best and like others I think that they will work all of this out. I am a City mouse and have had many experiences where I felt I was like an alien. I will keep on watching the show.

    Haven’t seen the rerun of Atl..yawn. Not interested at all in Miami. The HWM ratings are bad according to Perez. Snooze.

    Back to work….thanks for the laughs and, again, thanks for the links and pix.

    Oh, Charlie Sheen? You’ve said it all. He is a train wreck with a crashed space ship thrown in for added disaster. His poor family and children; all of these interviews will be around for years and years.

  33. Adgirl says:

    I agree that Bethenny came on very strong to poor Jason’s parents. They are somewhat needy and lonely for a larger family. Otherwise they are perfect. Really great people people. She is lucky.

    My parents couldn’t care less about my children. We lived within 10 miles of them. To no one’s surprise (except my parents) when my children grew up they still didn’t have a relationship. I know it hurts my mother’s feelings that my children don’t call her. But she didn’t care at all about them and it showed.

    The far away set of grandparents were like Jason’s parents. Even long distance they had a wonderful relationship and still do.

    But I didn’t have to battle over child rearing styles or the holidays.

    • Mimisfbay says:

      Oh, I don’t know what I would do without my grandchildren. I am very serious about NOT interfering in the lives of my kids. I have been close to my grandchildren and still edit my granddaughter’s college papers. My 11 year old granddaughter, on the east coast, calls and texts me. I think you are right it is something you must start really early. Oh, and keeping your mouth shut about child rearing also helps. Carol seems to be able to back off so I do think she will be ok. Your parents have missed a lot Ad Girl.

      How your husband doing? Still walking the hills?

      • Adgirl says:

        Yes he looks great! We walked all over the place last weekend when it was suppose to snow. Instead it was very warm here. LOL.

        • 2Stupid says:

          Yeah I can completely relate about the grandparents. My children will never know what I knew growing up as far as grandparents go. My parents are both not physically able to watch/play with my children, but use that as a crutch as well. My FIL believes if he makes a birthday party and Christmas he is involved. I used to spend almost all summer with my grandparents and loved every second of it. I wanted my children to have the same thing, but sadly their grandparents are detached.

  34. shamrockblonde says:

    hello everyone – thanks Lynn! – the recap was great and the site looks amazing – this morning while rushing around to get out to work I was watching an episode of HNY, but it was an old one – where Bethenney and Jill’s daughter spend time in the park – she on a bike, and B on rollerblades – it got me to thinking – what is the state of their relationship? do they even have one? I always thought that it was probably nice for her to have B around –

    on another note – I like Charlie Sheen – love two and a half men too and I wish him nothing but the best – why are the networks giving him all of these opportunities to make an ass of himself? simple – ratings – they are all vultures preying on him and helping him delude himself – do I think he is a mess? absolutely – but that does not make him a bad person, any more than it made it Kim Richards a bad person – I’m glad that the twins were removed – I just wish they were with Denise instead of their Mother – on that score, I agree with Charlie – they don’t belong with her any more than him – feel sorry for the children in all of this – they all have my prayers –

  37. California35 says:

    Great blog!

    I wish Jill and sister had stayed off Bethenny’s topic. That Gloria called B every other day, that Jill put B on the show, that now she has her own show….just one more time Jill is showing us she is still keeping score, and that she had her note this time…or in this case that Imus had her notes. Ugh! The whole thing about the book is old and sad…she is still trying to get rid of them, but I would give her that if she would ONLY stay on topic. By the way, I thought Lisa was better than that…I guess she is just like Jill after all. She kept making gestures as to approve what Jill said. Showing her support. ALSO!! I couldn’t stand the way they talk, how they talk interrupting others, and not letting go after someone else changes the subject.

    I was not having a very positive view today, sorry.

  38. shamrockblonde says:

    I have not watched Miami series – no interest, to be honest – somewhere up there, someone was talking about their relationship with their grandchildren – two of mine live with me – 11 year old identical twin girls – they have since they were 11 months old, along with my daughter – talk about not interferring!!! – not the easiest thing to do when we all live under one roof – many was the night when I was up feeding and changing their diapers – when they got a bit older they would climb into bed with my husband and I – while I loved it, I often worried that it would interfere with their relationship with their Mom – and yes, many times Bob and I went for a walk when the girls had misbehaved and Kerry – my daughter – had to punish them – we more or less stayed out of it, but when they would come running to us, crying, it was with great effort that we separated them from ourselves and told them to do as they were asked by their Mother. It has gotten easier over the years – for all of us, and the girls are growing into beautiful young ladies inside and out – just like their Mom –

        Sure seems that way…I for one am sick of the celebrity & reality. “star” products. Must everyone have some bridge to sell? I’m not suggesting that is all bad (Jack La Lane juicers & Foreman grills seem to be good items for example) but just because you are on some show does not make you qualified to sell skin care products or suddenly make your life story interesting enough to pen a memoir or give me advice on parenting, dieting, life, etc. Nor do I want to smell like Britney, Mariah, or Celine…ugh! I was never a Streisand fan (different generation I guess) but I respect that she’s not hawking all kinds of junk on the home shopping networks. I laugh when people worry about this nation becoming “socialists”; we are the biggest consumers in the world and are pounded with advertising everywhere, advertising that was invented and perfected here. We are a nation of shoppers even in the worst economic conditions and that’s why everyone is selling something even junk no one needs.

        • Powell says:

          I understand what you mean, but you have to look at it this way. These are different times and if you are a real celeb, not a made up one selling legitimate products is an extension to their careers, i. e. singing, acting, sports. Unfortunately the reality stars have to sell whatever product they are going to sell while these shows are on. They only have a small window. Believe it or not the publishers, retailers and etc will say in the future “Jill Zarin? Who’s that?” Out of all these “Housewives the only one’s that I see having staying power for selling a product after these shows go off is Bethenny and Kandi. Lisa Hartwell, Sheree and Kim can’t even get their products off the ground and it’s been 2-3 seasons.

          • Sha2000 says:

            I get all that. I guess my point is, I’m tired of seeing this junk being peddled everywhere we turn, its like a pushy souvenir salesman at a bazaar in the middle east.

      Not surprised. I made up my mind not to watch before the boycott because it sucked.

      You know when I think about it, Miami, (to me, when I think about a show) conjures of images of young, hot, women that party and go to the hot club scene and have some drama and date hot men. This cast is all wrong for Miami. I would shelf it or cast the show all over.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Miami Vice left a strong image of “Miami” on many people and then we had the Jersey Shore whores there too. . There is society and wealth in Florida but Bravo didn’t go for the familiar housewife in this franchise. They blew their own formula!

        • HD says:

          I didn’t answer the poll. I think in my own little mind that Bravo has a deal with these sites that put up these polls and if they really want to know they can just ask us or something. I felt this way long before the ban when they wouldn’t even allow my damn comments to be posted on their stupid blogs! I am sure Bravo is curious why this season is not working. I think they should ask some diehard fans of the franchise. This the first time a franchise has not interested me at all. I watch rerun after rerun of these shows. I have seen them all repeatedly and yet I saw Miami was on again today and I flipped. That show is not working. And now I am glad the numbers are there to prove it. Just about everybody said it was boring and a few people called us “crazy”. Okay well now you have the numbers. the show sucks!

            Oh, with that comment I wasn’t implying they would have to ask me. I am sure we all are and so are many others in this country “superfans” that watch the shows over and over and over. Those are the people they need to tap. It only makes sense to me.

            • Sha2000 says:

              So far what I don’t like is some of the Miami women are the most shallow we’ve seen, totally in love with themselves. Some are okay, like the blonde magazine editor and the lady with the mom everyone likes, the rest you can keep.

    Good afternoon Lynn and everyone!

    I received this email from a friend… I hope Lynn it is OK to post here:

    If you know any woman currently undergoing chemotherapy, please pass the word to her that there is a cleaning service that provides FREE housecleaning – once per month for 4 months while she is in treatment. All she has to do is sign up and have her doctor fax a note confirming the treatment. Cleaning for a Reason will have a participating maid service in her zip code area arrange for the service. This organization serves the entire USA and currently has 547 partners to help these women. It’s our job to pass the word and let them know that there are people out there that care. Be a blessing to someone and pass this information along.


  45. Mimisfbay says:

    Wow, my friend that died sure could have used that service. I was the cook of the group and lots of friends helped out but it seemed like her friends weren’t into cleaning. I did it when I dropped off food but it was like swimming uphill. Thanks for sharing this important info!

    • Sha2000 says:

      Mine too. We all helped out including a very sweet hospice nurse who did the dishes! My friend & her family really could have used it a few months back…I saw the pink ribbon, is it just breast cancer or all types?

      • Sha2000 says:

        Sorry to hear about your friend too Mimi, I lost mine just yesterday am…maybe that’s why I’ve been here on & off all day, discussing silly things like Charlie Sheen , keeping my mind busy.

        • HD says:

          I am so sorry Sha2000 and Mimi that you both are dealing with the loss of a friend.

          I heard about this service a few months ago and gave the information to my friend that is dealing with breast cancer. I am more than certain the very LAST thing you want to do is clean up a house and even if you want to I am sure you are tired from chemotherapy and whatnot. This is a great service. Sometimes people forget the “little” things and sometimes just laying in bed in a nice clean bedroom can ease your mind a little bit and allow you to relax.

          • Sha2000 says:

            Thanks HD. That was one of her questions when I visited her in the hospital a few weeks back; how messy was the house.

            Hope your friend is alright.

        • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

          I am so sorry Susan~you are such a grand person & would consider it an honor to call you my friend.
          Love & Hugs Angel~
          So sorry for your friend too Mimi~

        • Powell says:

          Wow. So sorry for you and your friends family..

  46. Sha2000 says:

    Poor Andy, lol!


    I didn’t watch the academy awards but I did see Andy on Morning Joe & I got to agree, who really wants to see school children preform at the Oscars?

  47. boston02127 says:

    My mother use to say that sometimes people look like their dogs.

  48. Adgirl says:

    Wow, I thought Richard Blais was divorced. He hadn’t mentioned his wife once this season before tonight. I feel better.

  49. lillybee says:

    I was watching Lawrence O’Donnell’s show The Last Word. He had Bravo Andy on to talk about Charlie Sheen’s breakthrough er breakdown. I wish Andy had been push on things like Lynn Curtin’s drug issues and Kelly’s breakdown.

    • HD says:

      Lynn has a drug issue? I didn’t think Lynn had a drug issue. Where did you hear/read that? She always came off to me as being very concerned about her body and her health that I could never see her doing drugs.

      • Adgirl says:

        There was a lot of speculation after the epi where she was slurring and confused at Alexis’s dinner party.

        • Sha2000 says:

          Love Lawrence O’Donnell! Seems Andy is making the rounds he’s been on Morning Joe a few times recently too.

  50. HD says:

    Bravo has restored a little of my faith tonight. This was a great Top Chef!

    • Adgirl says:

      OMG best of the season & last season too. Who would have thought a cooking competition could bring you to tears. 🙂

    • neroes says:

      How nice. A bravo reality show that makes you feel warm inside.

  51. VAgirl says:

    Totally agree – One of the best Top Chef episodes in recent memory.

  53. @tweatcyn says:

    BaaBee, I posted about the book, Mean Mothers. Glad you will read it. I know you will get a lot out of it. P.s. I had my mammogram today also. Glad to get it overwith. Now it’s time to wait. I have fibrocystic densities in my left but have never had anything more serious to date. I pray yours will be 100% normal. Hugs!

    • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

      tweatcyn~Good luck on yours as well & thank you for the information.
      Hugs to you as well.
      Mama is mad again as of yesterday~she is going to be 81 in May & I will be 52 in on the 16th of this month. I wish sometimes I could talk to her without her getting so angry all the time. I thought by this time we would be able to talk about anything but she is in great denial about how our childhood was.
      Thank you again~

  54. lillybee says:

    Good for the women on Top Chef. I hope that one of them takes the title.

  55. Kim Grandmatell says:

    Just a quick question…(by the way don’t post often but LOVE this board, thanks so much Lynn and everyone!) how do we know Camille is leaving RHOBH? I keep hearing it mentioned on here, but nothing comes up on google, etc…thanks!

  56. lillybee says:

    So next week they get to cook against the winners of their season. As far as I can figure out it is
    Carla vs Hosea
    Tiffany vs Kevin
    Mike I vs the Volt brother who won his season
    Antonia and Richard B against Stephanie

    I wish I could feel sorry for Mike I. but I can’t.

    • HD says:

      That should be really fun!

      Mike against Michael Voltaggio! Good luck!

      I think Carla is gonna take it home! At least that is what I wish would happen. 🙂

  57. Sha2000 says:

    Can someone please tell me who are in the pics above? The lady in the yellow by herself…is that an old atl hw? And the lady in the blk & wht shirt by herself….is that an old Shere pic??? Can’t figure them out!

  58. Sha2000 says:

    Oh! Also didn’t watch but the end of wwhl atl…Dwight unzipped…did we really need to be shown that scene?

  59. DJ Fruit Loops says:

    super off topic
    Lynn i know you wont change youur mind about blogging about it but are you WATCHING the real housewives of Miami
    cause if your not i wish you would
    saw the 2nd episode last night and it was chock full of celebs real ones too
    BUT THE FUNNIES special Guest that did NOTHING but walk in was WIG and her date DJ TRACY YOUNG
    minus the Baby Bump
    they were invited as a couple
    apparently that liar dipped her toes into the lady pool more then once
    wish i could recall all the other celebs that appeared but so far all i can recall besides them was the gov of florida that big old closet case Christi
    And Gloria Estefan looking as beautiful as always
    ps just seein Wig there makes me realize this is def not the first cast and that they retooled this series and made it over from scratch

  60. DJ Fruit Loops says:

    “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.”

    Lynn not everyone that watches the show has access to a pc or has no interest in watching clips on it
    most of those clips were new to me even as i really dont like watching them on the pc

  61. DJ Fruit Loops says:

    “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.”

    she should actually be more loyal to Andy as after all it werent for he she wouldnt have had a show to be on in the first place
    and once again she just out and out lied
    also according to wig its never about the money
    thats why she still hasnt paid Kandi LOL

  62. DJ Fruit Loops says:

    “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”

    Lynn so did almost every reporter that covered the awards
    while i found it to be sweet it seems most people thought it was a wtf moment
    i even had a huge fight about it with Jimmy
    who hated it even more then andy

  63. DJ Fruit Loops says:

    “I have just two words for you Andy Cohen: Kelly Bensimon. *Allegedly*”

    as much as i hate that Nutjob Krazy i dont recll her ever threanting to chop someones head off like Charlie Sheen has
    seriously i cant wait till no one speaks his name again including myself
    no actor on this planet has been given as many chances as he has

  64. boston02127 says:

    Good morning ☼ I saw a Robin this morning.

  65. BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

    Good morning boston~we are lucky~all kinds of birds in our yard because I feed them everyday & we have a birdbath & I think I counted over 20 different kinds of birds throughout the seasons. Too much time on my hands for sure. I do love them though. The hawks are beautiful but scary & I get afraid they are going to get one of the songbirds. How are you today?

    • boston02127 says:

      Morning BaaBee–I’m good thx. I luv’d seeing the Robin because it’s a sign of spring.

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        ahhh…it’s 3 degrees below zero with windchill…I hope your robin is a harbinger of spring.

        It’s frickin’ freezin’ in here Mr. Bigglesworth:

    • neroes says:

      I have to watch that the hawks don’t grab my chihuahuas. We also have a bald eagle nesting a few blocks away from my home. This year we have little painted buntings at our feeder. The little birds hide in my mango tree when the hawks are circling.

      • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

        Wow that’s unbelievable neroes~
        We put up a couple of bird houses this year on our fence & waiting to see what gets in. I’ve never seen the buntings but the pics of them are gorgeous. My hubby Allan loves mango. When the leaves are fully back in our weeping willow the birds will be safe again. We have never seen so many hawks as this year for some reason. I was always scared for my kitties but they stay inside only now. I love chihuahuas too. I would love to have one someday.

  66. HD says:

    I see Top Chef Masters is about to come on, which I like, however I have a question.

    Do ya’ll think Bravo is doing just a little too much, too fast? Pregnant in Heels and all these back to back to back new shows and premeires?

    Don’t they all seem connected, like you can appear on a show and then bam, you have a show? It seems like they are throwing everything at the wall and seeing what will stick.

    • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

      Hi HD~
      I remember Kathy Griffin’s life on the D list & she was going to at property in Miami & wasn’t that the house where was Atlanta ended up renting for a few days with all that crazy furniture? I think they are not giving us enough of the shows we love at the same time with all these new shows.
