I Hate Jill Zarin The Real Housewives of Orange County / Celebrity Apprentice

Quincy is on vacation this week so I wrote the Celebrity Apprentice blog as well as the RHOOC blog today.

The Real Housewives of Orange County

I think I get Simon Barney a lot better now than I did when he was on the show.  He seemed controlling and domineering but in fact he was just trying to make sure that the Housewives viewers didn’t see the real Tammy Sue Barney.  He thought he could maintain some sort of dignity for this woman.  We watched as he cringed when Tamra would do some of the classless, lowlife things, he told her to stop talking when she called herself a “truck driver with tits.”  That is the real Tamra, complete trash with absolutely no clue how to behave appropriately.

Simon had been trying to teach her but this season, she’s out there for the world to see, just as Jeana described her and what Simon was trying to save her from showing to viewers.

Tamra and Vicki went to Cabo San Lucas for a few days, this was the “girls trip” that Vicki never got last season, poor thing.  This was also supposed to be Tamra’s apology to Vicki.  Simon was always against these trips because he watched how inappropriately Vicki acted in past seasons during these mini-vacations.  This is exactly what Simon was trying to prevent.  Tamra made a complete fool of herself and she knows it, she even tweeted that she would get a lot of criticism over her behavior, this mother of four was out of control.

These two women should not be allowed out of the United States as each time they visit another country, they embarrass themselves and Americans.  Hanging all over strange men that they just met, Vicki pretending to be mortified that Tamra lay on the bar and allow people to do body shots off her stomach, screaming at the top of their lungs and drinking too much, you would think these women were in their 20’s.  Come on Vicki, you know you’ve done worse, remember this?

The whole point of the trip was supposed to be Tamra apologizing to Vicki over the way that she treated her last season.  I have several issues with that whole premise since Vicki acted like an entitled bitch all last season and deserved every moment of last season.  When it comes to Tamra, Vicki continues to think that she was right butting into their marriage, when in fact Tamra was confiding in her friend and expected Vicki to support her without confronting Simon Barney.  Vicki still seems to think that Tamra should have chosen her (brand new and on air) friendship over her marriage of 16 years.

The fact is, had Vicki just silently supported Tamra, they most likely would have had the same outcome, Simon Barney’s money ran out and so did Tamra.  Tamra failed to write “vows” to Vicki promising to love, cherish and have her back until death do they part but Tamra claims that she spoke from the heart in any case.  Tamra’s speech was actually a lot of BS that we know Tamra wouldn’t have said any of if she hadn’t needed Vicki this season.  Tamra was clear last season that she thought Vicki was wrong and many viewers agreed, had Simon’s money have continued to flow, Tamra would have stayed with him and continued to battle with Vicki.  Tamra also included in her speech that she needed Vicki now, all true but don’t ask Vicki for a loan Tammy Sue.

Tamra describes the size of her VaJayJay

These two women completely embarrass themselves, Vicki has acted like a fool on other occasions in fine dining restaurants but I seem to recall her giving Alexis a hard time  last season when she had trouble eating something that she wasn’t familiar with.  Vicki clearly has little experience eating in fine dining restaurants and reacted the same way Alexis did last season, I believe Vicki described her behavior as “classless trash”.  Vicki reacted this way before in past seasons when confronted with high end dining, maybe she should stick to McDonalds.

Vicki is the epitome of the loud, obnoxious American that so many of these countries complain about, she acted this way in Italy last season, this year she’s taking her horrible behavior to Mexico.  She told every service person she came into contact with that Tamra owes her a “big apology” and every one of them seemed very uncomfortable dealing with Vicki.

We got to see a bit of what’s to come with Vicki as she dissed her husband yet again and was hanging all over some stranger who looked a bit like Donn, Tamra noted in her interview that Vicki got quiet and moody when the subject of Donn came up, Vicki simply said things aren’t always the way they seem.  When last we saw Vicki and Donn they were renewing their vows and completely in love.  Was that all for the cameras?  I called it last season, Vicki was trying to do anything to improve her reputation and that trip with her husband to renew their vows was all for the cameras.

I think Tamra was trying to shock viewers with her ridiculous sex converation with Vicki in Cabo.  Again, more of what Simon was trying to shield her from, showing the true Tammy Sue and her crude, rude behavior.  Vicki’s reaction was so fake, a few more of those Cabo Wabo cocktails and Vicki would have jumped right in.

Maybe we could pass these two off as Canadians if they ever travel out of the country again.  (Sorry RealCityHousewife)

Gretchen was shown having two lunches, first with Alexis and another with her Daddy.  Alexis was trying to talk Gretchen into marrying Slade Smiley, who thankfully wasn’t shown on screen in this episode.  Why would Alexis want Gretchen to get married to Slade?  Alexis seems to think it is no big deal, if it doesn’t work out, just get a divorce because God forgives.  What Alexis fails to see is that Gretchen has already wasted two precious years with this loser and if they have children, divorce can be messy.  Gretchen can see that with Slade’s past.

Her lunch with Daddy was the opposite, Gretchen seemed to be asking him if he would be ok with her having children with Slade without marrying him.  Gretchen admitted that her mother would kill her if she did that and Dad didn’t seem all that happy about the prospect either.  I understand there is a ticking clock and if she wants children, she probably should get moving, still, Gretchen has a pretty good head on her shoulders, she admitted that she would carry the burden of financially supporting this man if she did marry him. Run Gretchen, Run like the wind!

We got to know a bit more about one of the newest Housewives, Peggy was filmed for a documentary on Post Partum Depression, it seems Peggy has a very serious case of PPD and was even suicidal.  This can be devastating for families but unless Peggy didn’t completely share with us, she didn’t get any therapy or proper anti-depression medication.  For a case of PPD as serious as “wanting to get the gun” or “throw yourself down the stairs” would warrant a trip to a doctor, right?  Peggy tells us that her mother in law gave her some holistic medications and she felt better. I hope anyone watching who may be suffering from the same problem doesn’t self-medicate or fail to seek help from a mental health professional because of this show.

Peggy tells us that her friends turned her on to requesting a “Push Present” for “pushing out a baby” and was presented with a Bentley after giving birth to her second daughter.  I guess I see now why another Orange County family had to short sale their home.
Peggy and her family take a road trip to Palm Springs, check into a beautiful resort and immediately head down to the pool where a private cabana awaits.  Peggy’s husband takes their older daughter London into the pool and as Peggy is waving at London her younger daughter Capri cut her finger on a picture frame.  The way that this woman panicked must be normal for the children, not one tear but Peggy completely lost her mind and repeated “Oh My Gosh!” at least 20 times, I lost count.  Luckily Peggy’s husband is reasonable and took care of the child but he grudgingly took the child to the emergency room because Peggy couldn’t seem to calm down.  Naturally little Capri was just fine.  Still not one tear.

I hope Peggy has help with her children while her husband is at work, this woman has no sense and couldn’t handle a little accident.
Alexis seems much more useful in a crisis but we see her struggle to take her twin daughter’s shopping as she tells us how difficult it is to care for twins.  I have to agree with her, if you’ve never had to care for twins, it really is very challenging.

I have to say I appreciate Bravo limiting the husband’s air time this season, I’m hoping it continues.  Unless absolutely necessary, I can live without seeing Slade and Jim on screen.  From what we’ve heard that is what Jim wanted, limited camera time but we all know Slade is a fame whore and wants to be on screen as much as possible.  It seems they’re also keeping Donn’s appearances to a minimum.  It is possible that he was already out of the picture during some of the filming.   Bravo doesn’t air scenes in order, as we’ve learned so it is possibly Donn didn’t film the complete season.

The Orange County ladies have posted their blogs:


A few of Tamra’s Tweets:

@TamraBarney:  watching last years reunion show 1. Reminds me of how unhappy I was. 3. So much stress on my face 3. Never be the last in hair/makeup chair

Counting to three is quite a challenge….hang in there Tammy Sue!

@TamraBarney:  Ohhh I’m going to get some crap about tonights episode…. Judge on! Who’s going to watch tonight?

Celebrity Apprentice

I wish The Donald would change things up a bit, the men vs. women is getting old.  I’d really like to see the interaction between the men and women and how that would affect these tasks.  Let’s see how Ms. Dionne Warwick would deal with Gary Busey, right?

Well that’s not going to happen now as Ms. Warwick practically dared The Trumpster to fire her, so he did.   But lets go back a moment, the task was to create a 30-second commercial for a video phone.  The men led by Project Manager, Lil Jon created a funny, cute ad that was supposed to add shock value by having a gay man introduce his new boyfriend to his parents via video phone.

The ladies, let by NeNe Leakes, went with the typical pull at your heartstrings video having a young girl simply saying “hi from Paris” to her folks.  The only thing that made it a little unique is that they cast Marlee Matlin as the mother and she used sign language to communicate.

I’m totally over Star Jones and her support of certain people on the team while she throws others under the bus.  This woman knew that Dionne was the weakest link yet tried to throw Playboy Playmate Hope Dworaczyk to the wolves, with no explanation.  It wasn’t really a surprise that Star supported NeNe during this task, while we know that somewhere down the line these two ladies clash, Star is not hiding her loyalty to none at all as the season is still just beginning.

The way that Star sabotaged Lisa Rinna and allowed Nikki Taylor to be eliminated without cause in the past few episodes was just so obvious.  Nikki was one of the strongest players and the way that she took all of the blame on herself without any support from her teammates is the reason the ladies will continue to keep losing and the men will dominate this show.

Star Jones leads the team in every task regardless of who is chosen as the Project Manager and she is ultimately to blame for the women losing as she divides the players and encourages backstabbing.  There is no support, no teamwork and no encouragement.  She has created a team of women who have to watch their back’s because Star’s knife is always in hand.

While Busey is a wild card he ultimately hit his mark and made the commercial, they had to edit is “Big Wednesday” out of the shot as apparently he chose not to wear any undies under his robe during filming.  Oh Vey Gary, I guess you hit your head pretty hard in that accident?

In the end Lil Jon did a fabulous job and surprisingly Meatloaf is turning out to be an incredible member of the men’s team, he is focused and dedicated.  These men work together and will ultimately continue to win as long as the women continue to act like fools.

NeNe began to cry in the boardroom, the ultimate sin in Trump’s eyes.  He is looking for strong business people and her tears showed weakness.  I’m surprised he didn’t fire her on the spot.  I was proud of LaToya who found herself having to defend her contributions to the team.  The Donald is impressed by and fond of LaToya Jackson so the ladies are going to have a difficult time convincing him to fire her.  I have to agree with her on this task, she did what was asked of her and tried to contribute where needed.  I was surprised that Marlee threw her under the bus after Marlee’s interaction with Dionne during the task, I thought she would go that way.

So we lost legendary singer but lazy team member Dionne Warwick and Lil Jon’s charity will get $20k from the Apprentice and another $20k from the company they worked for tonight for his charity.

Let’s see who takes the lead in next week’s challenges…plenty of men left, the women are dwindling…

In Other Housewives News:

Jill Zarin must be going crazy because she is simply not getting enough attention, her answer to that?  Create a U-Stream account and start to broadcast!  This is her third attempt at this nonsense, the first two were so boring and I guess Jill just doesn’t take a hint well.  This time she attempted to run a live U-Stream during the airing of The Real Housewives of Orange County.

A word of advice Jill Zarin, people don’t want to listen to your whiny voice yapping during the show, they actually want to watch the show!  Besides that no one wants to see you lying in bed with your dog listening to you complain about the smell when she passes gas.

Hopefully this was a test to see how many would join her live during a broadcast of a Real Housewives episode.  Her plan is to go live during airings of The New York Housewives but it simply doesn’t make sense.  People can’t watch and listen to her while they’re trying to view an episode.  She will have already seen the episode and will be trying to make excuses for her behavior, that’s the plan.

This, Jill’s third U-Stream recording isn’t posted to be able to view so she either purposely didn’t record it, mistakenly didn’t record it or because she had so few people join her, she chose not to post the recording.

Jill Tweeted:  Where are my “people”?? We need you in our LIVE chat on Upstream.com Just type in Jill Zarin or jillzarin and you will see me! In bed! hah!

Well there are some people mezmorized by the squeaky sound of this woman yacking.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey

Teresa's typical head tilt and ex-con husband

And across the river in New Jersey, all the media outlets have picked up the story of Teresa Giudice’s husband Joe being arrested.  This genius took his brother’s identity and attempted to get a driver’s license in his brother’s name.  I guess he completely forgot that he is on television and most people in Jersey probably recognize him.  No word on whether or not his brother was in on the plan or if Joe did this behind his back.  I’m sure we’ll hear more about this case soon.  $50,000 later Juicy Joe joined his wife at her book signing that went on even with her husband in jail.  I guess if Teresa stopped her life every time her husband got arrested, she’d be staying home a lot.

Today is Bethenny’s First Wedding Anniversary!  Happy Anniversary Bethenny and Jason!

Bethenny will also be on The Ellen Show today!

Until Next Time…

    Unbelievable great blog On two hard things to watch Lynn. Hope Q is enjoying her vacation. My thoughts exactly from what I saw anyway.lol
    Love & Hugs to all..

  2. Sammysmom says:

    Loved the part about Jill. You know, you are so much smarter than her when you already know what she has planned for RHONYC airing, and her spainin’. LOLOL Been a long time since I have posted. I read everyday, blog is like my favorite book/journal. I hope things are going great with you Lynn. Have a blessed day. I am very proud of you and all you have done/ are doing. Peace and love to you from a really loyal fan/friend. Debbie

  3. plainviewsue says:

    Lynn, I couldn’t agree more with you on the Peggy issue. Post partum depression is very very serious. You need to be seen by a doctor; you need to be put on medication. The fact that she still has episodes is very very scary.

    I didn’t know her house was in a short sale. Will these housewives ever learn!!??

    Bethenny is coming to my neck of the woods on Friday night. I cannot wait!!!!!!!!

  4. WindyCityWondering says:

    Thanks Lynn for the double header and I hope Quincy enjoys her well deserved vacation!
    So glad Dionne is gone – her diva nastiness destroyed my memories of her beautiful singing style! The OC needs to find women who are not so repugnant. There are so few who will film with each other that we get boring scene after boring scene. Maybe Bravo should recast with 20 somethings since this is the behavior we are shown week after week.

    • Mimisfbay says:

      Me too WSW! Dionne was such a disappointment and it has nothing to do with age because Joan Rivers kicked butt. I was thrilled that she was going to be on the show and so glad that I won’t see her any longer. Sad.

      I was channel surfing during OC because it was such a yawn. Puhleeze Vicki enough already. TB? No words to describe her behavior. Judge her? That would mean we give a damn. Vicki was only upset because she wasn’t up on the bar first.

      Thanks Lynn for the great, as usual, blog.

    • mariareads says:

      So agree about Dionne. What a disappointment to find out that she is kind of not a very nice person or she doesn’t play well with others or SOMETHING! I didn’t watch last night but CA gets repeated on cable or I can watch it on VOD.
      I think I must be a really naive person who actually buys into the “gracious” act many of these celebs put on. But DW was such a star and so revered. To find out what a biotch she was on this show is a huge let down. On the other hand, I am really happy to get to see Laytoya Jackson in such a positive light. She has always been painted as the nutso Jackson sister in the press. From what I have seen on this show she is level headed, gracious and seems to get it. I’m liking that about her! In fact she might be one of the only women I like on CA.

      • Sammysmom says:

        I agree with what you said. I am gonna say it.. “I think Dionne is a bitch”. I think Latoya is sweet. I wanna know when this cat fight is gonna happen with Star and Nene. I also want to understand why does NBC/Bravo air thier 2 highest rated shows at the same time on the same night?

      • humbruh says:

        I’m glad Dionne is gone. She caused a lot of unnecessary confusion that contributed to her team losing 3 weeks in a row.

  5. Butters'Mom says:

    Just one question: why in the world would anyone want complete strangers licking their bodies and who would lick a complete stranger?!?!
    Hygene people!!!

    • HD says:

      It happens all the time but most of the time it is with young college kids on spring break.

      • boston02127 says:

        Not me. I’m such a germ a phobe. LOL, I open doors with my sleeves and flush with my foot. If it were ok to drink
        Purell Hand Sanitizer, I would. I have such a phobia that I keep the hugh bottle of Purell in the consol of my car.

        One day me and my bff (Amy) were shopping and when we got in my car I gave her a baby wipe and she just took it without thinking and washed her hands then we both did Purell. She looked at me and said “this is why we’re best friends”. We both laughed so hard over what phobes we both are.

        • Sha2000 says:

          I ALWAYS flush w/my foot, too. Why aren’t toilets built w/a foot thingie?

          • boston02127 says:

            Sha2000—The worse toilets are the ones without the flushers. They have the little light that knows when u get up. I don’t sit so the light “thinks” you’re still sitting and it won’t flush. I do the balancing act with my foot in front of the light so it flushes. I’m such a dork.

            • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

              You crack me up boston~ I believe we all probably use foot control too~just finished cleaning my bathroom my hubby said he cleaned it last night? lol

            • Sha2000 says:

              Me too…It’s better than touching that mess with any part of your body! I’m horrified by shopping carts now & I’m so glad a lot of stores give wipes at the door. But as I typed that I flashed on those that touched the cart & then touched the items I’m buying…I’m not a germaphobe (just use common sense & wash my hands a LOT) maybe I should be? My best friend caught mersa several years ago (thank God it’s lessened for her in out breaks & severity), she’s very clean & has no idea where she caught it (first outbreak was on her leg, Dr’s thought it was a spider bite); who knows it could have been in a store?

              • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

                What is mersa? With 4 kitties I wash my hands so much they are peeling in spots.

                • kmuellfa says:

                  MRSA is a antibiotic resistant bacteria. Most of us have it on our bodies (especially in the nostrils), but if it gets into our system it can be hard to treat.

                  FYI, usually the most contaminated thing in the bathroom is the water handles in the sink. In healthcare, you are taught to keep the water running while you dry your hands and turn the water off with a clean paper towel.

                  • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

                    Thank you for that, kmuellfa
                    I go through tons of paper towels since I heard about the dish clothes being so bacteria laden. I get made fun of because I use paper towels when I clean everything except wood.

            • @tweatcyn says:

              I beg to differ. The worst toilets are the ones in Japan, a porcelain basin on the floor, that you literally squat over. One needs strong quads for any lingering. Thank God they have “Western style” toilets also.

          • Sammysmom says:


    • Sha2000 says:

      Absolutely disgusting! Especially now in the age of antibiotic resistant organisms, it’s playing Russian roulette with your health.

        • vilzvet says:

          It was a front page story here a few weeks ago, a high school wrestler contracted it from a wrestling meet. The poor was in the hospital, very sick, for days. Just think how sweaty those mats get! They are often just mopped down, ewwwwww. The boy did start bleeding and that is probably how he contracted it, although many districts complain about the lack of hot water in the showers, that could’ve also been the problem. I am sooo glad my son decided not to wrestle this year, he was the same weight as this kid and could have gone against him. Now they are trying to push the schools to buy these awesome machines that steam clean the mats.

          • JKW says:

            The only bad thing with using all those sanitizers and germ killing lotions and everyone being put on anitibiotics is ….that’s why germs become anitbiotic resisistant. After using them so long the antibiotics stop working. None of them kill viruses. Good old soap and water and washing your hands works just as good.

  6. HD says:

    Vicki sure did seem a little jealous about Tamara and her sex sessions. Maybe not jealous but something was certainly lacking. I think Vicki is ready to go out and do her “thing” and Donn is just in the way.

    • jezzibel says:

      The people that talk about having sex the most..usually are not having it or arn’t having it the way they seem to go into great detail about..
      I said it on RCH’s blog Vicki needs to grow up, she’s not in her 20s or 30s. I’m not saying she’s bound for the old folks home any time soon, but I know you can have fun and keep your diginity intact.

  7. mariareads says:

    As for Tamra and Vicky last night, all I can say is that I always knew Tamra was “that woman” we saw last night. I don’t want to call her names or label her w/ anything super nasty, but that is not a woman I would pal around with. She’s over the top and the sex talk thing is probably for the benefit of Simon as in “in your face soon to be ex”.
    The going on and on about 5 hours blah, blah, blah-so low class. So tacky. And remember, she knows she’s on camera and not just talking to Vicky. The entire Bravo viewing public gets to hear about her 5 hour marathon. And her kids. Gross. She’s what, 42/43? Yay for her that she has a boyfriend but I think this is the trampy Tamra that we never saw before she was married to Simon. The real disconnect for me is how she went after Gretchen at the reunion when older Tamra is no better and perhaps, somewhat worse. Ugh.

    It was pretty obvious to me that Vicky was having trouble at home. Even not knowing what has already been revealed to us about the filing for divorce, Vicky was way off in this episode and I don’t think it had anything to do with Tamra.

    • California35 says:

      I remember when Simon would try to “control” her and she would complain about it. I don’t like to see a man trying to control a woman or reverse, BUT it seemed that Simon knew Tamra and how she could get out of control. All he was doing was trying to keep her label headed or to act respectful. He was afraid that if he didn’t try she WOULD get out of control. Tamra proved Simon right. I also noticed how she seemed to please him, but things changed when there were no more expensive presents.

    • humbruh says:

      Tamra has been a tramp her whole life. Simon was just a dumb ass for thinking he could turn a hoe into a housewife. IMO Tamra is worse than Gretchen because 1.) Gretchen doesn’t have children who will be faced with the repercussions (i.e. not getting invited to playdates, being gossiped about at school, etc) of what Mommy did/said on TV last night, 2.) Tamra is 42/43 & that good-time girl bullshit should be out of her system by now, 3.) If Gretchen was screwing around with whomever, we didn’t hear her yapping about it. Had Tamra not made it her mission to put the girl’s business in the street, we probably wouldn’t know about anyone other than Jeff.

      Vicki wouldn’t be having trouble at home if she would stop emasculating her husband & that money/things will fill the holes in her miserable heart. She needs to take herself to therapy so she can learn how to love herself and others without having conditions attached.

  8. Sha2000 says:

    Haven’t watched OC yet but those pics above of Viki! Pulling your skirt up in a bar w/strangers present & cameras??? Excuse me, but wtf was she thinking? Seriously awful!

    • Sha2000 says:

      Pulling it up in public period…

      • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

        Hi Susan~
        I keep thinking if that’s what we see them doing on camera, it’s going to be even worse off. lol

        • Sha2000 says:

          Yup, its what we don’t see! And she lectures her daughter, Brianna seems to have more sense in her pinky, then her mom does judging from those pictures. Oh well! Bunch of nuts these HW’s, lol!

          • humbruh says:

            If Vicki ever gets to the point where she can’t take care of herself on her own those kids are gonna put her in a nursing home & never look back. Brianna looks like she wants to take out running when Vicki calls her name.

      • Rhetorica says:

        What was she doing, getting a tattoo? Can’t that be done more discreetly?

    • California35 says:

      I am not watching that either, but I do see them in the previous while I watch something else at Bravo. They act so inmature….

      • Sha2000 says:

        I’m watching oc this season just chose to watch Mildred Pierce on HBO last night. I will fast forward any “turtle time ” nonsense though.

        • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

          I loved original Mildred Piece~love Joan Crawford. But only get Cinimax & Showtime~no HBO ;(

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      It was mentioned before – why doesn’t he employee someone to drive him where he needs to go? Maybe he is doing other “things” he wants no one to know about? Maybe he can’t stand his happy wife, happy life? Maybe he really just needs to go to prison for a long time so he can improve his unique career? This latest charge will pit family against family….sadly more losers than winners in that game.

      • Sha2000 says:

        Agree except he’d probably say he had some “ting’s” to do. Seriously though, it seems like stupidity teamed with arrogance is his problem and that is a bad combo.

      • humbruh says:

        Maybe he’s afraid the driver would yap to Tree about his outings with Tara & little Joey. Just a though.

  9. WindyCityWondering says:

    Jill and Upstream is another epic failure – it will show she has few fans and thinks nothing of biting the Bravo hand that feeds her. Who would want to listen to her give a play by play on RHNY or chat during another HW franchise??

  10. PJ says:

    I read an article that said Joe did get a license in his brother’s name not that he tried to get one. Here is what the article said:

    ” ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ star Teresa Giudice is dealing with yet another headache involving her husband.

    Joe Giudice, 40, was arrested at the family’s New Jersey home Friday, charged with fraudulently obtaining a state driver’s license. The penalty if he’s found guilty? He could face more than ten years behind bars, according to NJ’s Chief Assistant Prosecutor.

    In June 2010, Giudice allegedly visited the motor vehicles department, presented his brother’s identification materials (reportedly his brother’s marriage license and birth certificate) and got a driver’s license for his own use.” End of article.

    This is really a stinky thing to do because if Joe got in an accident or did anything wrong his brother would be responsible. Isn’t this identity theft?

    The women on celebrity apprentice, sadly it seems that women can’t work well together. The men have issues with one another as well but they come together for their team and it shows in the final product. As for Dionne I think she needed to go. Although NeNe should have asked her to stay by not doing that I felt Dionne was set up by NeNe. Challenging Trump is never a good thing. I wonder if Dionne just thought she is such a big star Trump would back down. But I was surprised by the attack on LaToya. LaToya did as she was asked to do and I thought NeNe was dismissive of her through the entire challenge. LaToya shined on the last challenge so what was the problem?

    Star is a good leader and even though some may not like her, in the challenge she was PM on she won big time. The fact is the women did a good job, they just lost because the men did a better job. The men have all the creative people on their team. We saw last year how creative musical people can be. The women needed to be a bit more out of the box.

    The teams will change, they always do when one team is down by so many players. So eventually we will see men and women on the same team. Last year when Sharon and Bret got together they rocked. Actually I think Sharon could easily have won if she wanted to win but she didn’t seem to want to take the win away from others. What I loved about Sharon is that she fought for herself but wasn’t cut throat like a lot of the women this year seem to be.

      I wonder how Caroline Manzo is going to justify this mess.

      • Sha2000 says:

        It is identity theft, or if the brother gave it to him then there are two people who will be talking to the judge. No way around justifying this mess although I’m sure they are working on a BS answer as we contemplate here.

        I wouldn’t be surprised if she does the same thing she did with Danielle–you know, forcing dina and jacqueline to cut ties. god, they’re all so hypocritical. they set out to destroy danielle (yeah, she’s a crazy bitch, but they took it to another level of petty maliciousness. jill knows a lot about that!) but ignore the the far more despicable giudice thievery.

        • humbruh says:

          I really believe Caroline has been itching to cut ties with Tree since last season. If you go back & watch, Caroline always seemed really annoyed by her & I wouldn’t be surprised if she was not pleased with Dina agreeing to be Audriana’s godmother. The fact that Joe makes this dumb move on top of everything else and now the governor is shinning a spotlight on Albert’s shadiness gives her the perfect excuse to break ties.

      • kbinldo says:

        Well, duh, it’s all Danielle’s fault, of course!!

    Good morning everyone,

    Happy Monday – Darn it I got sick — this week is supposed to be beautiful with no rain, sunny and warm instead. That is when I decide to get sick??!?!1 😦 😦 Last weekend, I was driving and walking in the rain after taking a shower, sometimes with sandals only, and even then I didn’t get sick. I don’t get sick often, and always feel so proud of that. I will get some symptoms once in a while (mostly once a month), but they go awa. Oh well, it is just a cold, and I just took some day quill to help me. I will need to figure out what to take tonight so I can sleep all night through, I took some night quill on Saturday night, but nothing last night worry that I would over sleep this morning. I was constantly waking up…

    Waa waa waaa lol

    Moving on –

    Boston I am so sorry about your cat, the ex thing should not be a bother, but I know what you mean…I am glad you are not being negative about meeting her though 🙂

    Today is Bethenny’s Anniversary? Thanks for mentioning it…HAPPY ANIVERSARY. She will be on my DVR twice tonight in her show and on Ellen. I will have lots to watch tonigh, CA from last night, Nurse Jacky, United Staes of Tara. My bet is that I will be watching Celebrity Apprentice only since it IS TWO hours (ay why so long?)and if I don’t fall sleep earlier I will try to watch B.

    I am so disappointed in my iPad, now if I want to read this blog at home, I have to go back to my tiny itouch or sit in front of the computer. Nothing wrong with either, but I was just so used to and spoiled to be able to carry the blog all over the house and even the patio.

    I hope you all a nice day and week. A busy week awakes me, but I will BE coming back to read and say hi.

    Hey! Do you guys think the Day quill is taking some effect on me? I just want to go on and on lol

    I hope you all a nice day and week.

  12. Terry says:

    Is it just me or are the OC women behaving more odiosly each season? The hair looks more processed, the make-up more startling, and the antics seem designed to grab a headline rather than cumulatively tell a story, as in the first couple of seasons.

    Also, the women –and their men, especially Earth Jesus– seem to have been transplanted from a trailer park to a McMansion in Orange County. I keep expecting Jerry Springer to show up.

    I feel your pain! The blog looks great on the Ipad now but functions so poorly, its an effort to read let alone post. 😦 I’m spoiled too, I know, lol, but I loved commented as I watched tv in bed. Iphone is not an option for me because it’s too tiny for my forty-something eyes. Any plan for an Ipad version of the blog Lynn? As if you don’t have enough to do already, lol.

    Feel better CA!!!

    • California35 says:

      Thanks – I see that I am not alone on this. Yes the itouch was very helpful but the tiny letters were bothering my eyes.

      Thanks, I don’t think I took enough dayquill, but I am concern to take it with no food (ot too little of it). I will take some more with lunch. I really wish I could stay home…but I can’t. Maybe I will try to go to sleep early tonight.

    • Crisanna says:

      The comments section is so hard to navigate, especially when it gets long. There should definitely be a shortcut for that! I don’t think it’s Lynn’s fault. I think word press changed the formatting for IPads since the RCH blog is like that too. We are sounding spoiled, aren’t we! 🙂 I still remember the days of dial up and waiting MINUTES for a page to appear! LOL

        • Sha2000 says:

          That’s my point, lots of folks are not responsible because they can be irresponsible according to the law.

  16. VAgirl says:

    Great blogs on both shows, Lynn. I don’t know how you do it! As for Jill, she’s kinda pitiful. I’m actually starting to feel a little sorry for her – NOT. As for Joe, it will be interesting to see his attempts to get himself out of this fix. And Gretchen Christine, do you really want to have a baby with a man (I use that term loosely) who doesn’t seem to be taking care of the children he already has? Please think about the future of the child and not just fufilling your selfish need to become a mom because your clock’s ticking.

    i’m not sure if it’s the same in other states, but in NJ you need quite a few documents for a driver’s license, new or a renewal. it’s called the point system and it’s been in place since 9/11. you not only need a birth certificate and SS card, you need a piece of mail with an address on it and another form of identification. i can’t imagine that his brother wasn’t in on it. guess the Guidices are as thick as thieves also. who knew that term would become so fitting.

    • humbruh says:

      When I changed over my DL from LA to TX I had to bring in like 4 or 5 forms of ID & my LA license wasn’t even expired. They required 6 forms of id if you were going in there as a first timer.

      I read on another blog that the brother got stopped by the police & when they ran his license the picture and other info didn’t match.

  19. boston02127 says:

    I don’t know much about PPD. After reading about Peggy does anyone think she was doing that documentary to promote her mother-in-law’s remedies?

    Adgirl mentioned that they have many guns in the house. Bravo also shows Peggy shooting a gun at the beginning of the show. Peggy had stated she thought of killing herself. I wonder why the gun situation wasn’t brought up on the show?

    Don’t you dare make Canada take credit for your own people! Those are some fighting words to this Canadian! You being a hockey fan I hope you’ll enjoy this little part of my history. The reason we moved from Canada to the States (Los Angeles CA)
    was because the NHL offered my dad to Ref at all the home games at the LA Form.
    Hockey is in my blood so I was happy to see that you love it as well. Go Gretsky!
    I watched Jill last night to try to figure her out. She had up to 101 “fans” during the hour. She brought up Bethenny and said “I’m not going to talk about Bethenny so don’t bring her up..” (something like that) REALLY JILL!!!!! I was speechless.
    Think about it. Jill NOT talking about Bethenny. Not in our life time.
    During the hour 2 commercials came on that were about Bethenny.
    The timing was priceless. I watched Jill face when this was happening and she really looked sad to me.
    The whole thing was so pathetic and desperate.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Jill, if you are not going to talk about someone then you don’t bring them up period! Pathetic – anyone wondering how many of those “hits” were family using multiple computers?? She tweeters, puts it on facebook, etc and so few people responsed.

    • Adgirl says:

      I think the NY women are terrified about their ratings this year now that Bethenny is gone.
      To keep the drama alive they talk about Bethenny constantly.

    • Jill will bring up Bethenny again because people aren’t interested in anything else she has to say. I agree with you, this Ustream chat is desperate and pathetic. I wonder if these chats are an “audition” for her own reality show or if she is trying to build a fan base. I can’t figure out why she is doing this. It’s very strange but entertaining. LOL

          Yes! I try to go to as many games here in Chicago as I can, they do have a West coast tour where they play the Kings and the Ducks a few times during the season. You’re so sweet Nancy! Thanks for the great offer, someday…you never know 🙂

      • vilzvet says:

        That race for the playoffs is pretty crazy over there in that conference…I have been following it. Looks like it is going to go down to the last DAY! Ranger fan over here and they have been playing great lately, but still nothing is set in stone with sports.

        • LynnNChicago says:

          Very true, the Blackhawks aren’t in as great shape as they were this time last season 🙂 Plus my cousin is out injured for the rest of the season, they’re hoping he’ll be back for the playoffs. Good luck to your Rangers!

      • Sammysmom says:

        I keep forgetting to tell you this. I LOVE the Blackhawks very much. It has become hard for me to be as loyal as I’d like as my nephew (Andrew Yogan) plays for New York. If you get a chance, look him up. He has a pretty amazing story. One part of it is he was the youngest recruit to ever come out of Florida. He used to play in Canada, when he was 16-17. Still love… “We love the Hawks, yeah we really love the Hawks. We just learned about the Hawks this year” LOL

  22. Error404 says:

    Great blog!

    I fund Richard hatch just as bad as star jones. The way he activly went about weeding out perceived weak ones like David baddest was appalling! We only see less of their disfunction because they’ve been winning. At least two of the three wins were really really close that arguably could have gone the Womens way too. Had they lost yesterday, I’m sure the country singer would have spokenup big time about raising concern over the risqué content, and Lil John as PM would have been fighting to stay on the show. The women put out an excellent product, as they did with lisa’s book. Had she not quit niki probably would have been fired anyway as she made severalcrucial errors that gave them their only clear loss. She just saved herself the trouble of being trashed on tv.

    • Adgirl says:

      OMG how dumb of Nikki that she didn’t make sure the CampingWorld signage was out in front!! Isn’t that the single most important part of branding???

      I was not surprised that Dionne and Star were more “cooperative” and less undermining when NeNe was project manager. They really had it out for Lisa and Nikki.

    • JKW says:

      One difference is that the men at least stick together before they know the outcome. The woman start calling each other out even before they know if they won or not. Of course they will defend themselves in the board room but at least they don’t look like idiots before they even know if they won or lost. Even if they win they still have hard feelings and people upset with them. Doesn’t do alot for a unified team.

      • error404 says:

        maybe. The men argued a lot about Gary being PM even AFTER they won. Sour grapes IMHO. But yeah, especially this week the women did nothing to hide their problems.

        • JKW says:

          Oh God, if I had to put up with Gary for any amount of time I would be bitching too….if I didn’t shoot him or myself. Even though they complain about him they always preface it with something good about his acting or being a good person. I think everyone knows he is a loose cannon.

        • humbruh says:

          Both teams argue but the guys find a way to get the job done, in spite of that. The women tend to let the issues get in the way of getting the task done. Also, the men do a better job of articulating themselves in the boardroom.

          Lisa got fired because she didn’t do a good job of asserting herself & leading the project. She was running around like a chicken with her head cut off. She did a horrible job of articulating herself in the boardroom. That’s what got her fired, not anyone throwing her under the bus.

          Nikki did a good job of being a PM but the lack of branding is what lost it for her. She was fired for the simple fact that she punked out in the boardroom.

          Dionne was a cranking pain in the ass that demanded the respect of her teammates but wouldn’t show them the same courtesy. Age doesn’t give you license to speak to people any kind of way. It’s easy to call her a bitch but I think the more appropriate term is arrogant. The way she interacted with her teammates was arrogant & that attitude was most evident in the boardroom. That’s the only way to explain her challenging Trump to fire her. GTFOH!

          I think over all, there are more men on the show suited for this type of competition than women. With the exception of NeNe, Star & Marlee, the women seem to be pretty passive.

    • California35 says:

      I felt bad for Niki last week because she probably tried to avoid the negative talk and smack there could have been said about her. She clearly didn’t want to fight or have to go at “it”. It does turn ugly. She figured she would loose any ways.

    Dionne needed to go because she is a disruptive Diva.

    Is it me or does it seem every season of CA the women’s team flounders for weeks?

    • humbruh says:

      I agree with you regarding NeNe & Dionne. It’s not just you who has had that observation about the women on CA. They always cast a few women that are articulate & headstrong but the rest are passive. I think they do it to cause commotion & get the drama on tape.

      I was so happy to see that too! I love love love that show, but can’t get anyone here to watch it with me. Loved last night’s episode–watching Margie encourage Luke during the challenge when he was getting so frustrated and seeing the response of all the people around him when he completed it.

      • neroes says:

        Love the cowboys.

        • Adgirl says:

        Amazing Race is my favorite show of all time. I can sometimes get my husband, daughter or son to watch with me, but mostly I watch alone. Every Sunday afternoon I tell my husband that tonight is Amazing Race. He thinks I am nuts. I love the competition, the places they visit, all of it.

        Last night’s show was great, but sad at the same time. I am enjoying these teams the second time around for sure. Who do I want to win, the cowboys!

        • vilzvet says:

          I love that they show not just the beautiful touristy spots on the challenges but the poorer sections. I remember when they went to Vietnam, it was fascinating to see how those people live.

      • JKW says:

        I love Amazing Race but I am over Luke. He gets frustrated at every task he does. He constantly is saying how hard it is. Everyone else has to do it. He says his purpose is to show that deaf people can do anything that hearing people can do. To bad he doesn’t show that….because that challenge was just as difficult for all the other players. His being deaf didn’t hinder him in choosing the right tea. He isn’t a child and the frustration and crying was over the top….in my opinion. Just hanging in there and doing the task without all the drama would have done more to prove his point.

        • Adgirl says:

          Yeah we didn’t like Luke during his regular season when he pitched a tantrum over the elbowing at the clue box.
          Grow up. This isn’t The Amazingly Polite Race.

          Luke seems frozen at the 11 year maturity level. Contrast him with Marlee Matlin on Celeb Apprentice.
          I think Luke’s mom tries encourages him to finish tasks properly because in real life she won’t always be there to care and protect him – she sees how immature he is.

          • JKW says:

            She may see how immature he is but she isn’t doing him any favors by babying him either. I feel bad for her because she has done some of the really difficult tasks, never complains and always sticks with it. She should tell him to just shut up and get the job done.

        • LavaLady says:

          I agree, Luke does act very immature for his age. I wasn’t sure, though, if deafness was his only disability, or does he have any mental challenges as well?

      • Mookies1mom says:

        That was a really nice scene. Everybody clapping for them. Then at the next task Flight Time gave her a hug before they left.

    I just read about Jill’s U – thing. Being on the web while watching OC or NY HW’s WHY??? Ay this woman, is she taking lessons from Kelly?? But any ways… how does it work, she can talk and talk and the viewers can just see and hear her, or can they talk to her also? Can ANY one go check her out?I am asking that since she blocks people on her twiter and blog, will she also block people on that webcam? lol

    • LynnNChicago says:


      Here is the web site, she recorded and posted the first two shows, for some reason yesterday’s isn’t available. I missed it too – the first one is a “test” of some sort but its about 30 minutes long. That’s the one where someone mentioned me and the blog and she said, “who is Lynn?” LMAO she’s such a fake!

      • California35 says:

        Oh so people CAN talk also … wow … what if some of the “haters” “bullies” she mentions, joins in? She is pretty much opening up to something she will probably hate anc complain about later.

        She doens’t know who Lynn is….SURE!!! We believe her!! lol

        • Nancy says:

          I was online they entire hour. (yes I need a life)
          You can see Jill’s face all the time and people type their questions or comments which I could see as well
          split screen, then she answers some of the questions.
          She did bring up Bethenny and said “I’m not going to talk about Bethenny, so nobody ask me about her.” Then she does bring up all the “Haters” (aka us) and tells her “Fans” that she has a helper that will block all “those” posts (aka us)
          During the hour 2 of Bethenny’s commercials were shown and she looked kind of sad. She was in bed with Bobby and Ginger when she was doing this (which I found to be RATHER CREEPY. At one time she did have up to 101 “fans” that logged on.
          Hope this helps. And yes she did say she was going to do this during the start of RHONY. I’m sure the sponsors won’t be to thrilled when they hear this.

              That is why I think she will regret it…because she might get not so nice or appropriate questions. I am also cuirous, but I won’t sign in. Can she see who signs in? I wouldn’t want her to have my information.

    Great blogs Lynne.

    Tamra is all trash and dumb. Do as the Cabosians do? Hope she said that only because she is on T.V.

    I am thrilled Ms. Warwick is gone. What a mean sad lady with a terrible face lift. She added nothing to the team.

    And dare I say it. Has anyone other than me noticed that Star supports all people of color and throws caucasians under the bus?

    • OneMoreInBoston says:


      Nene is African American and they have a huge fued?

      • Adgirl says:

        @sss. I noticed Star and Dionne did not undermine NeNe to the same level they went aft Nikki and Lisa’s throats.

        The girls club is breaking up though, because NeNe actually called out Dionne and LaToya.

        I was impressed with NeNe yesterday.

        • i was very pleased w/ NeNe last night, rightly so.
          Dionne was nothing but a “DIVA” the entire show. All
          the ladies tried (too) hard to please Miss Warwick-enuf
          with “overlooking” everything she didn’t do, or want to
          to do “her own special way”. All the woman are
          scared silly of Ms. Warship,, esp. NeNe and Star. watching
          NeNe trying to “appease” Ms. Warwick after the
          boardroom was embarrassing to watch! then Dionne
          called NeNe a coward and a liar. NeNe would have
          none of that-good for her. Dionne was not” a” Diva
          Dionne is THE “Diva” no-one better, smarter, cooler,
          OR more revered. she played that Trump card till
          he wanted it back. she was surprised he took it from
          her. we weren’t. enough of the Prima Donna…IMHO

    Do you guys know what that necklace Tamra is wearing represents? It is the picture where she is wearing lepard bikini picture. I just wonder because I have seen her and other Housewives wear it.

  36. BambiBaby22 says:

    I didn’t read all of the comments, so forgive me if this was already stated……Vicki! I actually heard her say last night, “Tamra hasn’t apologized for how she made me feel last year”. WOW! Has Vicki NEVER taken a HS Psychology course? Nobody can MAKE you feel one way or the other, you CHOOSE to respond to that person’s actions.

    I actually turned it off after that.

    • Nancy says:

      Her son Michael has a degree in Psychology.
      No that’s someone that I think treats his mom like #@%! Does she feel badly for that?

    • Adgirl says:

      Vicki’s conceit about her hurt feelings last season was a jaw dropper wasn’t it? She was actively undermining Tamra’s marriage and now she wants to be wooed??? So much wrong with this.

      It just felt like a make up weekend for a troubled marriage. Just like Vicki’s trip with Donn last season.

    Jill’s proud moment~~~Her tweet from Zarin fabrics.

    Zarin Fabrics bag on New York subway!

    • California35 says:


      Talking about tote bags and brands…Do any of you know if Bethenny is selling some items with her brand? She has worn or given away some stuff like the tote bag she gave the girls in scary island, apron, shirts, etc. I have not seen them any where else. I wonder if she just mad some, but not for distribution. I would like to have something of those.

      We should consider ourselves lucky it could have been that damn book!

      wait JZ takes the subway..??…so not fabulous!

      (I mean no insult to commentors from NYC and surrounding areas, just that Jill always struck me as someone who would die before admitting she takes the Subway)

      • Nancy says:

        I’m sure it was one of her troll’s.

      • ilovelynn says:

        jeezibel, alot of fancy people take the subway. john kennedy jr always took the subway, mayor mike, more money than god, bloomberg takes the subway. actually, saying jill zarin takes the subway IS an insult to subway riders everywhere!

    • humbruh says:

      I’m sure she got that bag for free at a convention or something.

    Jill’s tweet~~~realgingerzarin FUR FRIEND MEDIA ALERT! Mom @jillzarin and me will be USTREAMING Tues. at 10:30pm http://www.ustream.tv/channel/jill-s-test-show join us!
    I don’t know why but what Jill is doing with this Upstreaming reminds me of something my great grandfather would talk about from the old days.
    Then there’s her sitting in bed looking a mess. I know at one time she said the bed is where they hang out but if you’re going to be live where people are watching, go sit in a livingroom chair & run a brush thru your hair. I can’t believe she thinks this is a good idea to help her image.

    • error404 says:

      what I don’t get about Gloria and her two spawn, is how convinced they are of how charming their little family is. Nobody but them thinks it’s cute that they entertain in bed, and she really needs to stop shilling it. Likewise with the horrid dog. No one is amused.

        Hi everyone, I have a question…
        I watch the celebrity apprentice last night and lets just say if nene would had won, is the charity that she’s playing for Twisted hearts? Isn’t that something she started and if so who would she had gave the money to, herself? Everyone else as you know meets with officials to present the check, so would she had presented the check to herself? I was just wondering about that..

  42. California35 says:

    Ellen is funny….she mentioned the TWO hour reality shows. I was complaining that Celebrity Apprentice is two hours, and that is the first show she mentioned. She also mentioned …Bigger Loser, and Dancing with the stars. She said she was going to have a program or something to say two hours is too much 😛

    I wasn’t able to see Bethenny at Ellen because there was an interruption before she came in. News we need to know from the president, but I was looking forward to Bethenny’s appearance. The same thing happened when Andy Cohen co-hosted Regis and Kelly.

  43. Nancy says:

    One of Kelly tweet’s says…

    Soak your gummy bears in Vodka then add them to your cocktail.

  44. Dani says:

    I just finished watching Bethenny Ever After and I have to say that I truly love her. She is a self-made woman with great attributes. However, when I watch her show my anxiety level goes sky high, because I am concerned that she is going to ruin her relationship with Jason. He is right when he tells her that everything is about her. She needs to realize that if she does not put him first that she is going to lose him. I’m wondering if any of you are feeling this way?

    • Nancy says:

      I love her too. I think whats happening with her is the fact that she has been alone most of her life and it’s not in her DNA to be anything else. Jason knows her and knows how to “reel” her in. I’m glad she sold her
      “Skinny girl Margarita’s” She will have more time to be a wife and mother.
      I wish she would gain some weight. She is looking anoretic to me. But I get what you are saying that her show at times makes ME nervous but most of the time I have a smile on my face.

      • Dani says:

        Nancy, I smiled too watching her show. Baby Bryn is beautiful and I loved it when she was smiling and cooing at Shawn. I really like Jason and I want to see them happy. I am concerned that Bethenny has been alone for so many years and calling the shots that she is not being fair to Jason. They are such a beautiful family and you can tell Jason really loves her and Bryn.

        • error404 says:

          I know I’m the odd man out here, literally, but when I see sooooo many women post here going on about how B is unfair to J and needs to work less, get what what she wants less, be less selfish, and spend more time being a better wife and mom, as a guy I just think “Gosh, sexism is alive and well in 2011!”. She’s not Laura Petry. Especially seeing as she’s the famous successful one making millions, why doesn’t frat-boy get off his ass and maybe stay home with the kid or do something useful for a change?

    • error404 says:

      No! I know there is a lot of Jason love going around. I like Jason, a lot, but there are times when he gets on my nerves. He’s way to frat boy unsophisticated local-yokel for my taste, but I didn’t marry him, so whatever. When he bothers me is when he’s being all stubborn “my way is right because I’m normal” jerky. He’s way too involved with his family. Hanging with your family because you like them is great. Feeling you owe it to your parents to be at their beck and call because you’re their sole survivor is not. He needs a therapist too IMHO. Luckily for B, her MIL seems really nice and more realistic than Jason, and very into B as she is. We never see her say anything on camera suggesting that she doesn’t think B is “normal”. Lucky for B, because should they not have gotten along, you just know Jason is the type to take his Mom’s side against his wife.

      • VAgirl says:

        I know. They both get on my nerves at times. It kind of struck me as odd that Jason got all huffy about B having a problem with inviting five of his couple friends. After all , it’s HER birthday party, not them as a couple party or HIS birthday party. Am I the only one that sees it that way?

        • error404 says:

          Sometimes I think he’s too sheltered for her. It’s obvious that she has issues stemming from her upbringing, but sometimes I fell like he’s had too Beaver Cleaver an upbringing to get it. He often seems blindsided by things that don’t seem unusual to me at all. Not everyone like to make a big deal about their birthday. What’s so hard to grasp about that?

          • Nancy says:

            I’ve often thought that Jason acts young for his age. (Not that that is a bad thing.)

          • Dani says:

            I thought that when Jason wanted his friends to attend Bethenny’s birthday party it was because he is proud of her and wants to show his friends what a fun person she is. I do see your point if she doesn’t want a big deal made about her birthday and doesn’t want a huge party he should respect her wants and needs. I would also agree it does appear that he had a Leave To Beaver childhood and Bethenny had a Married With Children.

    • humbruh says:

      I feel the same way you do.

  45. error404 says:

    OMG I almsot had a panic attack! Mr404 switched the tv to Bravo and then left the room. RHoOC came on and I couldn’t find where he put the remote. I only had to sit thru the “previously on….” intro, but it was like 1 minute a pure torture. How does anyone watch this crap! lol

  46. Dani says:

    error 404, you make some great points that I hadn’t really thought about before.

    • Dani says:

      In regards to Jason and his family.

      • Nancy says:

        Did Jason quit his job? He can go to LA with Bethenny with very little notice? If he did quit it will be the death of them. It won’t be working with Bethenny it will be working FOR Bethenny.

        • Donna Ayres says:

          I thought that Viki owned a home in Cabo. Since they stayed in a hotel, I think she only has a time share there.

        • HD says:

          I am curious if he quit his job too. It seems like he did or took a serious leave of absence because he is always there. Perhaps with the show he is making more money than his regular job so it was feasible for him to quit. No matter what B is obviously the breadwinner and it appears she is calling the shots.

    I missed BEA last night. I actually went to sleep at a decent time which is a rarity so I can’t wait to read the new blog. I have read a few of the comments so I am interested in hearing about the show. It seems like B’s birthday is kind of a big emotional thing for her.

    I did see a clip of Max and the assistant. WTF? I thought he was fired?

    RHWoOC Alexis Bellino is so phony IMO! Her husband “… doesn’t control her,” she assures us–right! Now, I’m not a psychologist or an artist BUT I do think we choose the artwork in our homes for a reason. I’ve noticed the artwork on Alexis’ wall in a video on her website. Watch it on the videos Posted by Alexis Bellino Verified Profile Facebook page (Halloween video: 0:27 to her right) It’s a picture of a puppeteer with all the little actors being controlled. As Tamra would say about Taliban Jim is “Controlling! Control freak!”
