I Hate Jill Zarin – Real Housewives of New York Premier – Lets Chat!

I Hate Jill Zarin  –  Lets Chat!

The Real Housewives of New York – FINALLY!


Tonight is the premier of The Real Housewives of New York, originally promised to viewers by Bravo two months ago, I hope Bravo is going to deliver and make it worth the wait.

All day today Bravo is running last season’s episodes, I’m sure Jill Zarin is thrilled as she keeps saying she wants everyone to forget last season and let her start fresh.  Bravo is determined to remind us just how awful Jill was last season.  Thanks Bravo!

Jill Zarin tweeted a photo of herself in her new shapewear asking if she should wear it on WWHL tonight.  YES Jill, please wear it, copying Bethenny always suited you well.

Yes, Jill will be appearing on Watch What Happens Live tonight along with cast mate Ramona Singer.  I’ll be watching what happens.

A recent quote from Jill Zarin:

“If she could, and you gave her an eraser, [Bethenny] would erase ‘Housewives’ off her résumé.
I’m proud to be a ‘Real Housewife.’ … I would never be less than proud of doing something
I chose to do. And certainly,
for her, it built her brand and career, so for her to want to make that all go away, you know, kind of hurts all the girls who are left there. We all feel the same way.”

Jill Zarin, in one fell swoop told us how Bethenny feels about being an Ex-Real Housewife (how the hell does she know, she hasn’t talked to Bethenny since last year’s reunion) and she is making assumptions then finally tells us that she speaks for ALL of the other housewives.  Seriously Jill Zarin?

Jill just can’t help herself, she continues to slam Alex in the press:

‘Real Housewives Of New York’ Preview: Jill Zarin Not Happy With Alex McCord! Watch! http://t.co/ljkcRnC via @HollywoodLife

More Bravo previews narrated by Ramona Singer:

Alex’s quote, “Thug In A Cocktail Dress” is now available on a t-shirt…so cute!  Fifty percent of the proceeds go to charity, you can view the t-shirt here:

I hope Bravo continues to send their preview video’s to The New York Daily News and not to the bloggers who actually watch the shows, this one bit them in the ass…

Until Next Time..

  1. If you had it like this says:

    Here go hell come.

  2. boston02127 says:

    Fast movin blog…..Thx Lynn!

  3. California35 says:

    Wool they changed their motto —

  4. boston02127 says:

    Jill’s gained weight.

  5. housewifeaddict says:

    Oh poor Alex. She’s not enjoying herself at all!!

    • Nancy says:

      Doesn’t Jill’s dress look exactly like Bethenny’s at the reunion but in a different colour?
      Already I can’t stand her. It’s going to be a long season, or a very short one for me.

      • boston02127 says:

        Jill is a copy cat with a lot of things. She’s been like that from day one. She copies cloths, make-up, jewelry and the way people act.

      • NJ Bev says:

        oh, too funny. i said below that the dress is the same that Leah
        wore to the Miami reunion!

      • TLM says:

        I will separate my feelings about Jill’s personality from her style and wardrobe choices.

        I also thought the blue dress looked like it could have been from Karen Millen, Bethenny’s reunion dress designer. I thought it was decent on Jill, far more than anything I’ve seen on her in the past. I will say I loved the bustier top on WWHL she had on, although I would have worn a blazer over it and maybe worn it with a skirt or trousers instead of a legging. She is too mature to wear it the way she did. It looked far more like clothing than Bethenny’s bustier, if we’re doing a comparison between the two.

        But what was so freakish was Jill’s copying of Bethenny’s slicked-back long ponytail and the bustier and leggings with heels. I thought the ponytail extension was too long and she looked like a bad parody of Barbara Eden in I Dream of Jeannie. Jill even darkened her hair color to a brown shade from red, which is a good move, but it would be nice to see her in a hairstyle appropriate to her that’s shorter like Ramona’s, and without the bangs anymore. Maybe a bob haircut.

        I like Jill’s fashion choices this year more than in the past — I never thought she had any taste in clothes whatsoever — but her obvious copying of Bethenny is looking, as Bethenny would say, a little Single White Female right now.

        • vilzvet says:

          There was no one more beautiful than Barbara Eden in I Dream of Jeannie, one of my favorite shows as a kid. Jill did not come close! I agree that the hair was simply too long, and the color was off. Her shoulders should have been covered, there comes a time when at a certain age just abandon the strapless look!

  6. NMhousewife says:

    First 5 minutes, and Jill is already throwing digs out to B (regarding Jill staying loyal to Kelly, “that’s what real friends do.”

    • housewifeaddict says:

      She can’t stop talking about Bethenny. Or how much she wants to make up with Alex – while being mean to Alex ….

    • California35 says:

      Yeah because they are so good of friends —

    • Pamela Masters says:

      I agree! Jill needs to grow up.

    • lovemamaearth says:

      Jill will never learn. I liked this comment from the tweet pic site:

      about an hour ago
      Grow up Jill! You are too old for all your backstabbing.
      Thank you Ramona and Alex for keeping it real. I LOVE BETHENNY!

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        Ramona is teh best isnt she
        she was awesome on wwhl
        she can still be friends with Jill while not taking any of her b/s and then she tells her to her face what she is doing is wrong

  7. NMhousewife says:

    Thank the Lord for Ramona being honest about Jill/Beth relationship…so different from how Jill is portraying it.

  8. lillybee says:

    So fun, reading posts about the show during the show. lol

    • boston02127 says:

      I like it too lillybee.

      • Linda says:

        So far…not so great. Can’t stand Jill and Kelly – ugh!!! I seem to have poor sound quality or something? There seems to be problems with the sound at times…on all my tv’s, so it’s not my televisions. Also, all my other channels are perfect, it’s just on bravo during the show, not commercials. Anyone else?

        • DJ Loops Fruit says:

          Linda i get that a lot with teh sound on HBO all the previews for upcoming movies or shows teh volume is way up almost unbearable and then when a show or film comes on the sound drops by 50 per cent

          • floridagirl88 says:

            I have that problem with the Judge Judy Show. The sound is just all over the place. Only on that show.

  9. NormaJean says:

    As I suspected….the Bethenny bash fest begins.

  10. California35 says:

    She shared HER friends with Alex!!???

  11. Scorpiosue1102 says:

    Jill is still pathetic. Funny how Ramona gets right down to it with Jill.

  12. California35 says:

    Love Ramona saying that Jill did this to herself….

  13. NMhousewife says:

    Kelly is a bitch!

      • Pamela Masters says:

        Kelly looks like a man!

        • Noreen says:

          I thought she was a man. I’m confused!

          • DJ Loops Fruit says:

            Kelly saying that you dont have to be pretty to be a model is almost like her saying you dont have to be playing with a full deck to be sane
            although she is right to a point
            NOT about Alex who is really a pretty woman but about sometimes really beautiful people dont photograph well and then some ordinary looking people are highly photographic
            I loved when Simon said now the rest of the world will know what ive known all along just how beautifull my wife is

            • Anne says:

              Kelly is right you do not have to pretty to be a model. She is right it is the picture that counts. I have done modeling in my late teens and very early twenties it paid for law school. I was with Elite and I am only OK looking, but tall and thin. I made a lot to pay for both law school and dual MBA degree.

  14. boston02127 says:

    Alex told Simon…..no drinking at lunch. Hmm.

  15. Why did they use subtitles for Kelly? LOL

  16. Nancy says:

    Did Kelly really say…”I’m not crazy”? Ok…

  17. LynnNChicago says:

    Kelly defines a model..priceless

    • California35 says:

      Lol I went back tonhear what she said. Lol of course she says that because it is about someone else.

    • boston02127 says:

      LOL –She’s so stupid. “being a model does not mean you’re pretty ”
      Yeah Kelly & you’re living proof.

      • nathania says:

        that was pretty uncalled for, I don’t get why that was even necessary. I mean, jealous much?

    • teetee says:

      Lynn,
      I wish you had a like button or a thumbs up!
      I was thinking the exact same thing,
      She is such a crazed, jealous praying mantis!

      • vilzvet says:

        Well, maybe she was referring to herself? And it was just edited to seem to describe Alex? Nahhh, it was a dig at Alex!

  18. HD says:

    I’m sorry but I just don’t see Alex as a model.

    • Alexa Rose says:

      I agree…she came off too vain in this episode and she is in my opinion just average. Though KKB’s comments were too harsh and she is proof that you don’t need to be beautiful to photograph well (plus Photoshop always helps).

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        but Alex does photograph beautifully and her fashion pics are really quite good
        she reminds me of elizabeth montgomery
        I didnt see her as being vain
        obviously someone at bravo asked her about the modeling thing and all she really said was that she was blessed to have two good looking parents and that when she looks in the mirror she likes what she see’s
        havent some of teh other castmates refered to her as ugly in the past

        • quincyil says:

          Some photographs are great, but I think they fixed them. Many photographs are ordinary. Lynn met her in real life and said that she is stunning. Jeff Lewis said that Kim Z is stunning in real life. I think it does have something to do with the angles and the photographic changes.

          I think Alex is 5ft 8 in tall. She had the same body measurements as me and I am 58. I don’t think she works out. She didn’t look toned on Scary Island, just thin. You have to use weights and really work at it to be a model especially as you get older.

      • TLM says:

        I couldn’t believe Alex’s “don’t hate me because I’m beautiful” (for those who remember that commercial) comments. Maybe she thinks she’s hot when she looks in the mirror, and maybe she thinks she lucked out in the gene pool, as she says, and that’s all great for her, but it’s really bad form to tell other people that. Moreover, she’s sounding a little deluded.

        Although it wasn’t the kindest thing to say, Jill was right: Alex does have the body of a model, but not the face. The photos she’s done that came out well are very carefully lit and posed, and the makeup just so. I would never connect that the person we’ve seen on RH for the last 3 years is the same one in the really good photos unless I was told it was her, and there are a bunch of editorial photos released recently which DO look like her that were not flattering at all IMO.

        Kelly may be crazy, but she’s right about models not necessarily being pretty. Some women are beautiful in real life but it doesn’t translate to the camera; others are unconventional looking but are great models. If you watch America’s Next Top Model, you really get to see how this works, and Tyra gives the girls really great advice on how to camouflage their weak points. I think if you’re going to be really successful in that field, though, you have to be both. Like a Cindy Crawford, for example, who always looks good no matter what angle, or in random snapshots of her on the street.

  19. California35 says:

    OMG Kelly – you are photogenic not necessarily pretty..OMG

  20. NJ Bev says:

    Jill wore the same dress to Ramona’s wine party that Leah(?)
    wore to the Miami reunion.

  21. HD says:

    That woman Cindy reminds me of someone else on TV but I can’t put my finger on it.

    • Kotagirl29 says:

      She said she wasn’t there to replace Bethenny, but it seems funny that they found a new lady for the show who has the business and the babies, when that is exactly what Bethenny said she would do in season 2 if she didn’t find the right man.

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      I think she looks like an older version of Sarah Silverman.

  22. California35 says:

    Cindy can have it all without the man… I get it I get it … Wll hold my thoughts about her, she is new, but wow twins so cute 🙂

    • California35 says:

      Ok perfect she just said that she would like one, but she won’t sit down and cry. Ok that is something I have said lol… I never said I can have it all though 😛

    • NJ Bev says:

      right?! how cute are those babies!
      Jill is so nosy, she just can’t control herself.

  23. HD says:

    Look at Kelly trying to steal Bethanny’s line about coming to an opening of an envelope. Why doesn’t she shut up! Why is she there? Is she going to buy art?

  24. NMhousewife says:

    Kelly stole that line “come to an opening of an envelope…” regarding Alex and Simon from B about Kelly….right?

    • California35 says:

      OMG Kelly…the next B – nooot!

    • Louisadelmar says:

      Its much older than that. I first ran into it in an autobiography about someone (David Niven?) from the golden days of Hollywood.

      • Kotagirl29 says:

        The “opening of an envelope” line was also used by Goldie Hawn in the beginning of “Death Becomes Her”. Either way not original.

  25. Nancy says:

    I like Cindy already.

    • California35 says:

      I do too, her babies are so cute, and she kind of look like one of my aunts.

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        i wasnt awake enough to get what happened with Cindy Her Brother and Ramonna
        i did laugh at the idea that Ramona got busted talking about someone behind thier backs

        • quincyil says:

          I think she got into a dispute with him first. Then talked about him on camera behind his back and got caught.

          I didn’t see anything kind or funny about Ramona last night. I have given her a pass for several seasons, but I don’t think she cares about others and when it comes to her thoughts, she does have diarreah of the mouth.

      • TLM says:

        Cindy isn’t as creepy as I thought she sounded in hearing about her in the press leading up to the premiere. But I doubt I’ll be watching this series. I’m already bored.

  26. boston02127 says:

    Kelly just said: Alex & Simon will go to the opening of an envelope. Did B once say that?

    • NMhousewife says:

      I knew that was right about that line. She can’t ever be original.

    • Nancy says:

      Yes and I think it was directed at Kelly!

      • housewifeaddict says:

        B also said something similar for Alex and Simon in a blog or in season 2 – before she became good friends with Alex. I think Kelly might have someone writing one liners for her though – didn’t Paula Abdul do that for idol when Simon was out quipping her. Might work for the Bravo head shots.

        • nathania says:

          Simon is strange but I was so touched tonight when he said about Alex that her modeling offers just proved what he had always thought about her, that she was beautiful on the inside as well as on the outside. That is one of the most romantic things I have ever heard anyone say about their spouse, you can’t pay for that kind of pr or adoration.

          I think he’s right about Alex, she has grace and class, which is something no one of those other women have, not one. I only hope she doesn’t ruin it by being too focused on nailing Jill to the wall. Alex can relax because Jill will nail her own self to the wall every single time, without any help, she proved that on the show tonight. I don’t blame Alex though, because honestly there is little more infuriating than having someone stand there and lie right to your face about something.

          • DJ Loops Fruit says:

            it was a really sweet tender romantic moment
            i have to admit i got misty when he said it
            Personally i like Simon always have

          • TLM says:

            I think it was romantic for Simon to say those things as her husband. However, I *don’t* think it showed grace or class for Alex to go on and on about how hot she thinks she looks, and that she was lucky in the gene pool. And I just think it makes her sound delusional.

    • Anne says:

      B said, “The opening of a door.”

  27. lillybee says:

    West Coast here. I have a question. Did Jill try to be a bit nicer?

  28. This show is a trainwreck so far. It is worse than I imagined it would be. I’m so bored I am doing my shopping list right now.

  29. housewifeaddict says:

    OK – it’s official. Jill hasn’t changed. Nothing has changed. And no one is acting like Alex’s wing man.

  30. Austin says:

    OMG, I hate Kelly worse than I even thought I would. . . what does she contribute, I’d like to know. The crazy, I guess. . .

  31. California35 says:

    Jill she was not confortable answering your questions because they are personal and you guys JUST meat. Oy!

  32. boston02127 says:

    Jill is putting on a good act. She can’t stay this way, it’s not her. Kelly on the other hand is making me sick.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      Jill is already making me sick. The gawsipping and slight shoulders against Alex. It’s the mean girl’s club. Although Alex is so nervous, it is uncomfortable to watch.

  33. 2Stupid says:

    Kelly stole Bethenny’s that Silex would come to the opening of an envelope. Does Kelly or Jill have an original thought?

  34. LynnNChicago says:

    catommanney Catherine Ommanney
    @LynnNChicago and you are the ‘real’ deal! xx

    Cat just Tweeted this…love her!

  35. AZ Girl says:

    Kelly looks huge in that dress in the art gallery

  36. NormaJean says:

    Is it me or is this show mostly talking heads rather than real events?

    • KookADoodleDo says:

      Talking Heads were probably added during the “creative editing” Bravo had to do causing the seasons delay.

      • NormaJean says:

        That’s what I’m thinking too! There wasn’t enough interesting footage so the “drama” has to come from the interviews.

  37. Nancy says:

    Ramona needs to read LuAnn’s book.

  38. Cusi77 says:

    Looks like it is not a good start for Alex…

    Is this RZoe talking about Taylor? What is Jill doing talking about Bethenny who is not in the same show…. ewwwww!

  39. California35 says:

    Ramona 😦 she was the best dressed and you told her she needs help because of her skin :-(poor girl… Good thing she wasn’t from the Housewives club, she would have gone nuts on you… Lol

  40. Girlygirlnyc says:

    Why Ramona? Why? Don’t be so mean!

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      she expained on wwhl that she really thought what she was doing was helping these women for thie futures in job interviews
      it did come off as mean though
      i know she meant well or so she thought
      but didnt she wind up making one of those women cry

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        explained sorry my typos are getting worse

      • TLM says:

        I didn’t think she was harsh enough to make someone cry, but job interviews aren’t the place to be giving someone makeover advice. I think it was coming from a good place (like telling the Hooters girl she needs to get an education), but Ramona is never great with tact. If she wants to speak to young women to encourage them to get an education and succeed in business, she should line up speaking engagements for that purpose.

  41. HD says:

    Is Luann goofy? “All this time in Europe and we never ran into each other.” Yeah, because we know Europe is sooooooooooooo small that everyone knows everyone! Sheesh!

  42. Cusi77 says:

    Jacques looks likes the cricket in pinocchio!

  43. boston02127 says:

    It looks as if Luman walks all over her boyfriend.

    • Cusi77 says:

      Perhaps he likes to be on National Tv… who knows! I need to see more… I DO like Ramona and Alex!!!!

  44. LynnNChicago says:

    Jacques found his voice too…along with Alex

  45. AZ Girl says:

    LuAnn’s boyfriend is a “hoot”!!!!

  46. boston02127 says:

    Alex looks pretty blonde.

    • NJ Bev says:

      I think Alex looks really good this episode, better than
      usual, i think you’re right-her hair looks good, her skin is glowing,
      too……

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        blond is a much better color for her hair
        makes her face look softer

      • Powell says:

        I so hope she doesn’t rest any one ARM dresses. After seasons of those dresses I literally scream at the TV whenever I see a real celeb or anyone else in those dresses!!!

  47. Linda says:

    Love Ramona. So far not taking shit, or falling for shit from Jill. Wish Jill and Kelly would go away, can’t stand watching them or hearing their stupid comments!

  48. housewifeaddict says:

    This wedding set up is very reminiscent of the tennis match from Season 2 – with tables turned. But I’m glad to see Ramona still likes Alex – even if she can’t stand Alex getting up late.

  49. 2Stupid says:

    I’m not really feeling Sonja.

    • NJ Bev says:

      me either, why?

    • boston02127 says:

      @2 Me either. Kidding about guys if funny but after a while she sounds like a slut.

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        I think your all too harsh on her
        she is seeing one guy but doesnt want to get too serious as she is getting out of a divorce
        but she is still single and if she likes guys so what
        its healthy
        I dont like the way she talks to alex next week at her party but having not seen what leads up to it i will try and hope for the best
        ps i guess we all now know that it is her house that scene takes place is
        i was kind of laughing when people on teh board here couldnt tell
        esp when she says you have the worst manners GET OUT OF MY HOUSE was in the commercial that ran non stop for months
        LOL

  50. boston02127 says:

    Jill looks awful. It looks like time / age / her personality / or something has caught up with her.

  51. HD says:

    What is up with Alex? I don’t even feel like this is the person she is but a character she is presenting.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      I think she’s very nervous – and trying not to let Jill gloss over anything.

  52. LynnNChicago says:

    BravoAndy Andy Cohen
    OMG @JillZarin is totally working a Madonna “Express Yourself” look!!! #liveat11 #wwhl100 http://say.ly/BqaeMK

    Oh no she didn’t. …. Andy just tweeted this photo of Jill

  53. Linda says:

    Jill hot fat

  54. Linda says:

    Sorry, Jill GOT fat! LOL

  55. NJ Bev says:

    I hate my laptop-I have to keep hitting the “refresh”
    button to stay current. stinks

  56. firepainter says:

    Jill has to be “prepared” so she can keep her lies straight.

  57. Nancy says:

    I love that Alex has Jill’s number already. GO ALEX!

  58. Jen says:

    Kelly, who is literally photographed at any and all events, is making fun of the events Alex chooses to attend- Kelly is photographer going to many many many crazy stupid events more then any other HW I’ve seen- she’s the one who attend anything, and many within the same night- how ironic ( Kelly, if you’re reading ironic means….nah,go look it up in the dictionary…sigh…a dictionary is…..)

    • housewifeaddict says:

      Kelly needs to stop talking NOW.

      • nathania says:

        that quote isn’t original either (the one about the opening of an envelope), I forget who said it first, but it wasn’t her.

        but she used to brag about attending events hosted by Perez Hilton. Which is kind of sad, and pitiful. She’s one of the people who used to call him “Perez”. Perez Hilton is like the gossip columnist for the mentally disabled, he isn’t even that good at what he does, he’s just savy and his cynicism fit well early on with the internet culture. Kelly has zero room to judge.

        • DJ Loops Fruit says:

          not to defend Perez but he does a lot of things most people arent aware of
          he has discovered a few recording acts and got them signed to warner brothers (he has a working arrangement with them)

  59. Nancy says:

    WTF Jill said nobody thinks I can change but i’m really nice.

  60. Linda says:

    I think Alex and Ramona look good

  61. NJ Bev says:

    Ramona is starting early with the “slips” this season!

  62. HD says:

    Dang! Jill just ripped into Alex.

  63. Linda says:

    Jill please zip it

  64. Zoey says:

    Oh no she didn’t!!!! Jill is such a bitch, calling Alex names, then dissing both Ramona and Alex for wearing off white.

    • Noreen says:

      White and cream are acceptable as long as you don’t wear a nicer dress than the bride.

      • Zoey says:

        I’m just shocked that Jill smiled and kissed Alex, then a few minutes later called her a f-ing bitch to two other women, then when Alex came over she smiled and acted like nothing was wrong. What a phony; no integrity. She can turn that meanness on and off in a second! At least Alex is not that fake. She’s trying to be cordial to someone she despises.

        • nathania says:

          I can’t understand what the countless sees in Jill Zarin. I just don’t get it. What redeeming quality could she possibly have to make someone want to be her friend. I know Ramona and Jill have been acquainted for a while. and I understand Kelly is mentally unstable and easily led so that explains her attraction to Jill, which I am quite certain won’t last. But Luann…that one seems strange.

        • DJ Loops Fruit says:

          the funny thing about that scene was how at first jills “friends” were looking at Alex with disdain buying into Jills b/s
          ut then after Alex asserted herself they looked like they found some new respect for someone they had just met
          which leads me to believe her “friends” have been targets before

    • Linda says:

      Jill is the same mean, insecure, ugly bitch she always was…where is this “change” she talks about? Why does she have to be on WWHL tonight!!! I hope lots of viewer comments are calling her out on her ugly behavior just like last season!! OMG Jill looks ridiculous on commercial with Andy and Ramona! LOL

      • Cusi77 says:

        Linda_ She has changed but for the worst! If I think she was mean before… I went short! She can be more vile!

  65. WindyCityWondering says:

    Jill better hide that one star from the reviews cause they will be coming to take it back!

  66. Noreen says:

    Did Jill just say Alex is beneath the social crowd at the wedding? This is being nicer.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      She can’t help herself when she gets mad. Being called out for not going to the gay – support march but being on the board really got to her. She’s so transparent!!

  67. KookADoodleDo says:

    Damn, Alexis really grew some balls! I am loving her calling out Jill’s BS.

  68. Linda says:

    Dang, Alex is busting Jill on EVERYTHING!

  69. HD says:

    Did Ramona stick her finger in that cake?! How disgusting. Who does that?!

    • housewifeaddict says:

      Well at least she didn’t write a book on etiquette – but yes – who does that!

  70. 2Stupid says:

    did Jill just all alex a f”ng bitch? did I hear that right. Is that being kind?

  71. Girlygirlnyc says:

    No matter what anyone does, I will always be nice…..

    20 minutes later. BITCHING about Alex tearing apart her dress and the fact that this party is above her!

    Jill cannot even help herself.

  72. boston02127 says:

    Jill’s lightened up on the make-up. Last season I thought her make-up was so heavy but now I’m looking at her thinking maybe heavy make-up was the way to go.

  73. 2Stupid says:

    I hope Jill squrims on WWHL.

    • KookADoodleDo says:

      I hope Ramona defends Alex on WWHL.

    • Noreen says:

      Oooh, I forgot about that. I can’t wait to see that. Of course, who will get a word in with Ramona. OMG did you see Jill on WWHL preview? What a fright!

  74. Noreen says:

    Jill is a two faced spanxed skank who should never be allowed a forum on national t.v. to spew her lies and hate. She and Kelly are the ultimate mean girls.

  75. HD says:

    Jill looks a HAM-Hot.Ass.Mess.

    Why would she wear that?!

    • AZ Girl says:

      YIKES! I am not sure what I just saw!

    • lillybee says:

      Because she is Jill.

    • Noreen says:

      Scary!

    • housewifeaddict says:

      That look isn’t even funny!

    • Powell says:

      I can’t remember who commented about a week ago that Stedman told Oprah that she looked ridiculous with her Tuna Turner wig a few seasons ago. Why doesn’t Bobby do the same to Jill? But then again Jill dang sure is no Oprah.
      Hey Lynn I was surprised Jill and Bobby have only been married for maybe nine years. I thought she had her claws in him for way much longer than that.

  76. KookADoodleDo says:

    Looks like Jill has her poopy dog Ginger with her on WWHL.

  77. WindyCityWondering says:

    Jill looks like a prostitution whore in that get up! What’s with the I dream of Jeannie hair do??

  78. boston02127 says:

    OMG….did anyone just see Jill on the clip of WWHL? What a look! Puke.

  79. HD says:

    I’m sorry but that Herman Munster shoes line makes me crack up all the time!! Luann said well even Louis Vutton makes mistakes. I am cracking up! LOL!

    • Zoey says:

      It’s a tad funny, but don’t you just love how Luann and Kelly love to pick on Alex because Jill does? They are such bullies.

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      But Countless your clothes are so dated and kind of boring

      there IS a difference between timeless and Dated

  80. California35 says:

    What the …. ? Is Jill wearing for WWHL??!!! What’s up with her hair???!

  81. Zoey says:

    O. M. G. I just saw Jill on WWHL. I was hoping that wasn’t her, but…it is. Just please, no. I’m so embarrassed for her.

  82. Amber...Real Wife says:

    That old bitch has not changed one bit! She’s meaner than ever and looks ridiculous on WWHL! She’s like 100 trying to look like a club girl from the 90’s!

  83. AZ Girl says:

    I AM IN NEED OF SOME EYE BLEACH!

  84. HD says:

    Jill! I can’t believe she is wearing that and that long weave ponytail. What the hell was she thinking. She looks like she is in a costume or something!

  85. Linda says:

    Jill with Ginger..copying off BH Lisa and her dog!!

  86. Kukulet says:

    “Alex is at a wedding that is so far above her…”

    Jill is right. She has changed. She’s gotten more vile, more vindictive, and fatter. And WTF is up with the hairdo and outfit on WWHL? She looks like I Dream Of Jeannie on crack.

    • nathania says:

      that was the worst thing she said all night, even worse than ‘that f’n b*tch Alex McCord’. I think the comment was ‘look at her, she’s socializing with people that are so above her’. Yikes. It’s going to get to the point that no one will want to be within 20 feet of Jill Zarin when they are filming this show because they will be afraid people will think they agree with her behavior or what she’s saying.

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        it will be interesting to see how these 2 make up and how long it last
        but they said it becomes a show with the brunettes agaisnt the blondes

        maybe LULU and Jill finally have a spat

  87. Cusi77 says:

    Craziness is contagious! Look what Kelly did to Jill!

  88. Austin says:

    Holy cow! That was friggin’ painful & uncomfortable.

  89. firepainter says:

    Isn’t she copying Betheny’s hair?

    The outfit and hair on WWHL, bwhahahahahhahahhahahahahha

    START VOTING, PEOPLE!!!

    RAMONA!!!

  95. Noreen says:

    Andy, you finally got it right! He is not letting Jill off the hook!

  96. Austin says:

    Jill looks like a $5 hooker on WWHL! OMG!

  97. Cusi77 says:

    JZ First lie of the season: “I am nice”!!!!!

  98. Jill is blaming the editing already.

  99. housewifeaddict says:

    Jill is digging her hole even deeper on WWHL. The words were said on the side – but edited into her scene LOL.

  100. KookADoodleDo says:

    Jill blaming editing already??

  101. Noreen says:

    I love Ramona. She can laugh at herself!

  102. NMhousewife says:

    Yay for Andy for calling out Jill on her behavior and yah for Ramona for not letting Jill get away with her BS. Look at Jill’s unhappy face…things are not going the way she assumed they would. I hope there is a landslide on the poll question in Ramona’s favor.

    Hilarious the Great Grin on Andy’s face!

  103. California35 says:

    It’s a total MISS!!!

  104. Jen says:

    Jills ‘excuse’ was editing again,says her words don’t match track and she said to producer- episode 1 we are already excuse/lying…… wow!!!!!

    And Andy called her out on it -did you say it? And Jill tried to avoid and Ramona called her out-

    Now Jill trying to argue she is better businesswoman then Ramona- Wow!!!!!!

    I twitteed Andy that due to JZ’s comments on WWHL I boycotting NY season

  105. WindyCityWondering says:

    Andy made a hugh mistake having them both on tonight.

    • Austin says:

      I heard that! Gosh, WWHL is a trainwreck – even worse than the episode!

    • Cusi77 says:

      Jill took the sconces from the hall before leaving her house and is wearing them tonight in WWH…

    • housewifeaddict says:

      It’s like NeNe and Kim and the phone fight.

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        which people are STILL talking about

        Andy made a smart move putting them on together
        he new Ramona wouldnt put up with t Jills B/S and she didnt
        it made for good tv
        i was laughing my ass off

  106. Girlygirlnyc says:

    Never noticed JZ had a horse face until she went for the literal pony tail.

  107. MichellefromNY says:

    um, just started watching this now. That was so mean that the girls took a photo in the art gallery specifically excluding alex who was standing right there. So high school and like mean girl of them!

    • NMhousewife says:

      I think I missed that.. I will have to rewatch the episode and keep an eye out.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      It was probably one in a series of photos – with the scene edited to make Alex look excluded. Hopefully …….

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      and taking them over and over till she finnaly walked away i felt so bad for her

  108. boston02127 says:

    LOL, Follow Jill’s shirt down. At the bottom of the shirt is a bubble of fat just sitting there.

  109. NMhousewife says:

    This is a great WWHL having these 2 together, I am laughing my ass off!

    • KookADoodleDo says:

      I am starting to think Andy knew exactly what he was doing by having them both on together. LOL, Ramona is swigging down that Pinot!

  110. HD says:

    Jill did nothing but make people not want to buy that crap. She should not have worn that. Horrible advertising.

  111. Mia Kulpa says:

    Finally! Ramona isn’t taking any shit from Jill! And LOVE the question. haha Jill doesn’t like it. ROFL

  112. NJ Bev says:

    This is the best WWHL episode ever.

  113. California35 says:

    Ok Jill – you are so focus on how Ramona was “mean” on those interviews…what about you???

  114. Scorpiosue1102 says:

    Trainwreck of an episode, but I’m LOVING it. Ramona just won’t take her crap. I’m just waiting for Jill to stand up and start Vogue-ing at any time.

  115. 2Stupid says:

    this is 10x better than the show. Also loving the drinking game, even though I can’t play. Cute!

  116. Jen says:

    Hahaha now I remember why we hate Jill Zarin so much- ugh! Also she couldn’t say she lost weight b/c she knows she got fat lololol

  117. AZ Girl says:

    Ramona=Cookie Go Ramona. Jill is toast. Ramona is not going to let Jill BS her way out of this. Thank you Andy!!!

  118. 2Stupid says:

    Andy is poking Jill. Love it!

  119. Jill is trending on Twitter. This is going to go to her head. 😦

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      What does trending mean?

    • Jen says:

      But what are people writing? Good or bad?

      • Jen says:

        It means she is being mention in many many many tweetsBUT from what I’m reading majority are making fun of her WWHL look and her claiming to be nice/changed but actually being a B I t c h

        • HD says:

          Right. She is trending but they most of them are mean!

          • DJ Loops Fruit says:

            but Jill doesnt care that the twits are mean she just likes that she is being talked about
            she will spin in somehow in that empty head of hers

      • Zoey says:

        Mostly baaaaaad.

        • Kokuanani says:

          It also appeared to me that some people saw that Jill’s name was “trending,” so they incorporated it into their own tweets, just to get into the list of tweets mentioning her. E.g., they include Jill’s name, but then go off on “buy cheap shoes from my site” or whatever.

  120. WindyCityWondering says:

    Andy, Andy, Andy – what were you thinking? Love how you give Ramona top billing!

  121. lillybee says:

  122. Zoey says:

    Oh gawd, 1970’s called and wanted their everything back, Jill! Oh, except the horrific voice, you can keep that!

  123. California35 says:

    OMG! He is back – Ben Weiner – great question!!!

  124. KookADoodleDo says:

    Me thinks Jill will be hating on Andy tomorrow!

  125. Cusi77 says:

    Jill the person who advice you to dress that cheap is your worst enemy!

    • KookADoodleDo says:

      Kelly probably gave her some wardrobe tips, including the glitter on her eyelids.

      • nathania says:

        I’m thinking that Kelly reminds me of the person that is chronically stoned who when they try to touch base with reality and join the conversation, it becomes clear they are zoned out. But as long as they sit there and be quite, no one notices too much.

  126. WindyCityWondering says:

    Jill doesn’t watch Bethenny’s shows? LOL

  127. WindyCityWondering says:

    @Boston – that is a watermelon of fat at the bottom of Jill’s corset! She should have left Ginger on her lap!

    • MichellefromNY says:

      it was awful. I really don’t think shapewear works. It just squeezes your fat into more embarrassing and unflattering places on your body. I was going to wear it under my wedding gown but it made my dress fit weird.

  128. 2Stupid says:

    Jill’s skweez crap isn’t even in store yet. She is all hype.

  129. California35 says:

    She is so ridiculous – is trying to be younger? Sexy? What?

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      after RHNY she has a future in the circus!

    • HD says:

      I hope not because she failed horribly in both areas. She looks like a kid that got in their mom’s closet or something. The hair, the shoes, that corset all of it is bad, bad. bad. I know she is gonna hear this. If this does not come out until August she just KILLED her “brand”.

  130. NJ Bev says:

    The Zarin family must be so grateful to Jill for
    giving them a 100million dollar company.

    • MichellefromNY says:

      She’s pathetic and delusional that she thinks it’s all due to her that Zarin fabrics is successful. What an idiot.

  131. Mia Kulpa says:

    This whole show is a diss on Jill. Omg…Andy better grab his balls. ROFL

  132. AZ Girl says:

    BEST WWHL episode EVER! Andy brought out that cut out of Ramona and the look on Jill’s face was priceless. Thank you ANDY. Jill is dying. She wants out of that studio big time.

  133. boston02127 says:

    Well thank you Jill Zarin. Looks like we’re going to be together on this blog for a long time.

  134. housewifeaddict says:

    Ramona is completely drunk

  135. NormaJean says:

    So did Jill dye her hair brown so that she could be TEAM BRUNETTES?

  136. NJ Bev says:

    YEAH RAMONA!!!

  137. California35 says:

    Ramona won – Duh!!!

  138. AZ Girl says:

    Ramona by a landslide! yea

  139. Cusi77 says:

    Who won the poll? I lost it!

  140. Golden Girl says:

    OMG I don’t even know what to say about the show……. Jill is so bad I might not be able to watch.

  141. Noreen says:

    I’m spent! Off to bed for this east coast girl. Have a great night everyone. Can’t wait to read Lynn’s blog tomorrow.

  142. boston02127 says:

    Now WWHL is over there are probably 4 men trying to get Jill up off the chair. It looks like she couldn’t move in that God awful shirt.

  143. prof addicted to reality tv says:

    This is the convo I wanted………..I was on an earlier post!

    1. JZ…..still unbelievable. Both in show and WHHL. In the latter…..she has lost it. I think tonight JZ had a KrayKray level meltdown. It just happened to be on live tv.

    2. I think Ramona is one the few good ones. She didnt needs money (unlike B?), didnt need to find a mate, didnt need to revitalize her career, didnt need publicity (unlike most)…… she is what she is.

    3. I dont know how long I can watch JZs debauchery. The thing is that at some point, the viewer becomes complicit. The “change” has not happened. The point of switching off (as an intellectual moral duty) is near.

    • MichellefromNY says:

      The worst is when Jill is CLEARLY lying through her teeth and so blatantly that it’s really unbelievable. And then pretends she never said by yelling as loud as she can, “I never said that!”. She’s SUCH a classic mean girl it’s not normal.

      • prof addicted to reality tv says:

        Its unwatchable. At some level, us watching is enabling her. Lets not. Lets just not.

        I want to, though 😛

  144. NJ Bev says:

    Thank-you Lynn Hudson, you are a gracious hostess who
    always makes her guests comfortable.

  145. KookADoodleDo says:

    I think Bravo just paid back Jill for all of her BS.

  146. I bet you Jill is annoyed that she lost to Ramona in that poll by a landslide. The RHONY viewers still HATE JILL ZARIN!!! LOL

  147. AZ Girl says:

    Holy smokes! If I were Bobby I would head to Libya. Safer then being with Jill tonight.

  148. cdnfillie58 says:

    Has anyone noticed Jill follows Julie … Bethenny’s Julie … Things that make you go hmmmmmmmm

    • cdnfillie58 says:

      I mean in twitterville that is ;p

    • MichellefromNY says:

      Says a lot. I’m sure she still does google alerts on bethanny too. She’s so nosy, she cant help herself

      • TLM says:

        I find it hard to believe Jill did not have a Google alert on Bethenny Frankel since they stopped speaking. Jill was the one who mentioned “Google alerts” to Sonia and Luann, if you recall, on the phone last year, when neither of those other women even knew what it was. If this was the case, she ABSOLUTELY would have known Bobby Frankel died. I would also have to think Jill is one of those people who immediately reaches for a Blackberry or runs to the computer as soon as she’s awake, lest she miss any gossip.

        Why she is following Julie is definitely odd. Does she think it’s less obvious than following Bethenny?

  149. NJ Bev says:

    How many times did Alex swig back a drink in this episode?! LOL

  150. quincyil says:

    NY was my favorite housewife show, but I absolutely hated this first episode.

    I hated Ramona’s treatment of those young girls and she didn’t care about how they felt. You don’t have to destroy them on national TV. Sticking your dirty finger in a perfect wedding cake is outrageous. The bride should call Ramona when she sees that.
    If my child did that, I would be embarassed. I always thought that Mario had issues with people who were gay because he teased Simon about his clothes, but Ramona said that she did not support the gay lifestyle, but they should be allowed to get married. I can’t believe she said that.

    I hated Jill Zarin. She was cruel to the bone. It is outrageous that she said she wants to make up with Alex and then says that Alex is not worthy of being at that wedding and she called Alex a bitch on national TV. So she is calling people and texting questions behind the scenes. Did she want the bride to disinvite Alex? I just knew Jill would complain about Bethenny.

    I felt the show was dark. The Church for the wedding was dark. Did a amateur film the bride coming out of the church?

    Kelly was out awful in the interviews. She does not understand that her behavior is not normal. Who is she to judge anyone?

    I have been a fan of Alex and I know she is in a difficult situation, but there was no humor in her approach. She looked smug.

    No one was fun or funny. This was the worst episode of RHNYC ever.

    The art gallery scene in Miami was one thousand times more interesting that the one in the first episode of NY.

    I can’t believe that these women created this dark nothing.

    I thought Simon in the office was not funny. It seemed sad that he had nothing to do and that Alex has to worry about money. Bothering her when she is worried and trying to earn enough to survive is wrong. At 37, that modeling career is going to be short.

    I am so glad that Bethenny and Jason left with the baby. They must have known that Jill would attack and they left to protect their family.

    I loved this show so much for 2 years and last year, I kept thinking that Bethenny and Jill would find resolution. I completely agree that Bethenny should not be near toxic Jill Zarin.

    I don’t know exactly what I can use to describe my feelings… I think I am disgusted.

    I want Adriana and Lea Black back. Let me watch Elsa tell Larsa that she is immature.
    Miami is better than NY. I can’t believe I am saying this.

    • AZ Girl says:

      Take an Aleve Q. You will feel better tomorrow. Works for me and a few glasses of wine and all is good.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      It was a case of great expectations – the show had a horrible first episode. Jill has gotten meaner. It was hard to watch Alex. Kelly looked sedated. Ramona is definately experiencing menopause but she is the only ray of light around. Sonja and LuAnn on a double date was boring. And Cindy who?????

    • Rabble Rouser says:

      I don’t watch Miami, but this was brutal.

    • nathania says:

      I have to agree with you on that.

      I said i wouldn’t watch Miami and I lived to eat my words.

      I understand Bravo targeted this show to Latinas which was a genius move and I think they did a good job. I didn’t watch every episode and I had prejudged it because I got turned off by Larsa and Christy, both of whom are ‘basketball wives’ and the content reminded me so much of that show on VH1, which is also shot in Miami. Both of those two women could be dropped and i wouldn’t miss them. However the other women are all very interesting and I felt kind of embarrassed that I had written them off so early.

      I caught the tail end of the reunion and I wondered whatever motivated Andy to think it would in a million years be feasible to shoot a reunion live…but watching the fight between Adrianna and Christy at the end was enthralling (though I hope no lawsuits come out of it). Christy is the girl who has absolutely no remorse for anything she does. Adrianna is a tough cookie too. I know this show was ignored by the bloggers…I honestly believe it would be a better move to boycott this season of New York, we aren’t going to miss anything but vajazzling and Sonja’s naked butt.

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      i like them equally
      im pretty sure Miami really is coming back

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      Quincy she didnt say SHE didnt support the gay lifestyle
      what she said was
      Even if you DONT support the gay lifestyle if someone wants to get married they should be able to

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        DJ- It was a bullshit thing to say. It was like she knew she was on camera and was trying to please everyone- both conservatives and liberals.

        She tried to redeem herself on WWHL and was doing fine until she equated being gay with bestiality- and that she was fine with both. Even Andy said no it’s not quite the same under his breath.

      • quincyil says:

        I remembered all of the things she said to Simon about being gay. Mario too. I think both of them have issues with it DJ. They live in the fashion world, but they are practicing Catholics.

        Remember Teresa and Joe…. their best friends are gay, but Joe makes comments while dancing.

        That is the vibe I get from Ramona and Mario.

        I think that Illinois and Iowa are ahead of NY and California on this issue.

        • nathania says:

          It’s so ironic that someone like Ramona could use that terminology anyway when she’s supporting her gay hairstylist’s gay lifestyle and her fashion designers gay lifestyle, it’s like women like you are totally supporting gay people… and it’s appreciated. I didn’t know ramona was a practicing catholic, it sounds like she was trying to ride the fence a bit on this after all.

    • TLM says:

      I didn’t even stick around to see the cake scene someone mentioned. That is unbelievable to me that Ramona would do that. Would she like it if someone did that at her wedding?

      I didn’t understand Ramona about not supporting a gay lifestyle. What does that even mean, anyway?? She’s not in a gay relationship, so what does she care, especially if she said she supports gay marriage??

      She’s in the fashion business, and I wouldn’t want to be her after news of that statement goes through the community. Although she doesn’t deal with designers in her business, but rather off-price overstocks to sell to TJ Maxx et al, she is dealing with designers for her personal wardrobe, and it sounds like she’s going to have some serious (gay) ass to kiss after that remark. LOL.

      • nathania says:

        I didn’t watch WWHL where she apparently clarified but what I heard was ‘even if you don’t support the gay lifestyle you can still support gay marriage’ or something, when she said it I didn’t think she applied that to herself because she went on to talk more about it and about attending the march and that everyone should have a right to get married.

  151. AZ Girl says:

    Thank you Lynn for this blog. Fun night. Night night to all. Sweet dreams Jill..

  152. boston02127 says:

    Jill’s says she’s never watched Bethenny’s show. RIGHT! She’s probably in her smelly dog fart bed every night that Bethenny airs while stuffing her face, taking notes and crying.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      oh we know she is!

      • Zoey says:

        She probably records it and sits there pressing pause, rewind, pause, rewind. She ain’t fooling no one!

    • TLM says:

      That was the most ridiculous thing I think I ever heard Jill say, that she doesn’t watch it. If she said, “It’s too painful for me to watch,” OR, “Not every episode, but I have seen it,” OR “Yes, I watch it, and even though we don’t talk anymore, I am so happy for her and her family, and I like seeing her with her little girl,” I think people would think Jill was genuine and would change their opinion of her. But her saying she doesn’t watch it, as if she doesn’t care or is too busy, etc., is just so obviously phony.

  153. WindyCityWondering says:

    The after show is going to be a hoot! Jill was ready to explode – Andy practically ignored her and Ramona wouldn’t go along with her bs.

  155. housewifeaddict says:

    Ramona clarified her position on gay marriage on WWHL. Her words were a little mixed up in the episode – but she was clear later.

  156. NMhousewife says:

    Well, first episode came and went and I enjoyed posting as it happened. It was interesting and I am excited for more to come. WWHL was a great way to end the night too. Good night everyone. Can’t wait to read Ramona’s blog tomorrow.

  157. MichellefromNY says:

    Jill lost weight?? Andy, get glasses!

    • MBDEA says:

      Ok, ok, I MUST need glasses. She looks like she lost wt to me, too. However, I am ready to take this board’s word for it.

      PS Jill looked like an OLD “around the way girl” on WWHL

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        i thought so too i dont like Jill but i didnt hate the way she looked on wwhl
        i think some here take her personality which is zilch and the hatred of her into what they say about her “look”

  158. WindyCityWondering says:

    Kelly looked like she was on meds in her convo with Jill. You could actually see the color of her eyes!

  159. lillybee says:

    For the first time ever, I am looking forward to WWHL.

  160. VAgirl says:

    I’m still in shock. I can’t believe what I’ve just witnessed.

  161. I don’t believe for a second that Jill hasn’t watched Bethenny’s show. Who is she kidding?

    • KookADoodleDo says:

      Did you catch the dig from Jill about her only watching the ads for BEA cause “they are all over Bravo”?
      I hope Bethenny got the chance to watch this trainwreck tonight.

  162. HD says:

    I had a great time tonight watching the show with everyone. Interesting to actually chat during the show. 🙂 Quite interesting.

    Off to bed!

    Proof is in the pudding…I still hate Jill Zarin.

  163. Scorpiosue1102 says:

    How on earth does Kelly get that Jill was “dumped” by Bethenny? Did she not watch the show or pay attention at the reunion? Rhetorical question of course because I’m sure Kelly was counting rainbow colored unicorns at the reunion. Also, does Jill not get that these things have been VIDEOTAPED?!?!?! Sheesh. Note to Jill: Your previous behavior has been taped. You saying it was different does not make it so.

    • nathania says:

      I just can’t get past the thing of who these people are in life that Jill has such profound influence over that she can bend space and time and rewrite history and whoever the dolts of bitchiness past were, they just go along with it.

      I am going to go out on a limb here and say that if the rumor is true that she once had size ‘z’ breasts and had a reduction then these people were probably men (which kind of explains her being surrounded by Kelly and Luann). And Sonja has very masculine energy as well, in a kind of Samantha/Sex and the City kind of way.

      • Kotagirl29 says:

        I believe Jillousy had her breasts reduced from a size “g” not z. She did it after the first or second season, don’t remember which one, but I do remember the conversation.

  164. NJ Bev says:

    I think Jill losing to Team Ramona is the final insult.
    The Karma for Jill is so bad………. when even Ramona,
    who, God Bless her heart, managed to do at least 5 really offensive
    things in the first episode, wins the team challenge in a LANDSLIDE.
    That’s how bad the Karma is for Jill……….
    This must be KILLING her.

    • NMhousewife says:

      You are so right! Ramona did a few cringe-worthy things, and yet I find that it doesn’t bother me as much as every single cringe-worthy thing Jill did. It’s not that I think Ramona is innocent but Jill is so awful that she overshadowed Ramona’s faults.

    • nathania says:

      that is HYSTERICAL!

      when you put it that way, someone so blatantly offensive as Ramona, but who doesn’t try to hide her offensiveness, beats someone so offensive as Jill, who does nothing but try to obfuscate what a witch she is.

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        but who would you rather have as a friend
        Ramona again wins with a landslide

        • quincyil says:

          I really don’t want either Ramona or Jill, but I would take Ramona over Jill if those were the only two options.

          Sadly, I did not like Cindy (I am not Barstop.) Why did the babies show up at at art gallery opening? No other children were there and babies that age probably should be in bed at that hour. She had a nanny. I just don’t get that.

  165. MichellefromNY says:

    Jill is being such a bitch with her biting comments. And anyone else thought her hand motions were a little fake. Like she was wiggling her fingers in slo-mo likke she was a princess or something. Who the hell does she think she is?

  166. Zoey says:

    So this Cindy person….of all the exciting people in New York…? Maybe we need to see more of her, but I just think she’s sort of forgettable. We learned she had a ‘bikini’ problem, and has two babies….

    • nathania says:

      I am excited about her, because it’s a nice change on that show:

      Jill: Bobby’s money
      Luann: Count’s money
      Kelly: Bensimon’s money
      Sonja: Morgan money

      I think Ramona made her own money though I don’t know what her husband does. And Alex and Simon both work.

      I guess the above explains exactly why the 4 above are going to hang together, they all became who they are through other people. And Ramona isn’t going to be loyal to anyone really, so I am worried about Alex this season. I am actually very interested in the new lady and what she might have to offer the show. She’s definitely in the Bethenny role, as a single woman in New York who didn’t marry to become someone but who made herself into someone.

  167. WindyCityWondering says:

    The talking heads so far are nothing to write home about – if they were redone I have to wonder just how bad this season really is!

  168. boston02127 says:

    Lynn—-I can’t wait to read what you blog in the morning.

  169. Mia Kulpa says:

    If Jill doesn’t see Andy’s handwriting on the wall, she’s blind.

  170. lillybee says:

    Jill seems to have shut down her facebook page again.

  171. boston02127 says:

    Did anyone else notice Kelly introducing herself at the art show (exactly like Jill does) putting her hand out while saying “Hi, I’m Kelly Bensimon”. Any other time I’ve watched Kelly in a crowd she just stands there like a bag of rocks. Kelly is Jill’s new hobby.

    • California35 says:

      That she is…

    • housewifeaddict says:

      Like Jill telling Kelly how to fix her dress – stuff your right boob in – figure out how close your boobs are to popping out so when your dress slips you notice – it was hysterical. I wouldn’t want cookoo as a hobby.

    • MichellefromNY says:

      omg, could it be…Kelly is Jill’s replacement for Bethanny? I mean, Kelly is lower on the pecking order and easy to manipulate. She’s like a child so very much like an underdog, a trait jill loves. Interesting….

      • TLM says:

        If Jill cared about her friend Kelly, she would get her to a therapist and on medication, because Kelly listens to Jill and trusts her. Not only did she fail Bethenny as a friend, but she failed Kelly as well, who really DOES need serious help.

  172. California35 says:

    Ramona is getting lots of love on FB

  173. If you had it like this says:

    Jz is so ridiculous! Her stupid politicking against Ramona on wwhl was pathetic with the whole taking her to task about being mean to those girls, which she was, but as if Jill cares!! Repeating ‘Rameana’ over and over. Hilarious fail!!

  174. MBDEA says:

    Ramona is an HR nightmare. You don’t effing tell a candidate in an interview that she needs to dress better. You JUST can’t comment to them about the way they look. Did Ramona even graduate from college? Jr college? High school? What a dumb-shit!

    “If this is what the business women are like now a day, the BUSINESS world is in deep sh**!” –to borrow from Ramona.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      Better than Dina “flirting” with an underage kid on season 1 of NJ during his job interview. Yuck. But yes – Ramona was totally out of line!! Still love her!!!

      • MBDEA says:

        I oscillate on Ramona. Deep (buried in the depths of her own underbelly) she must be a good person but her unsubstantiated ego is annoying and yet amusing; a mile-wide, 5-inches deep

        • JKW says:

          Ramona handled the interviews badly. I really do think that in her mind she thought she was giving them helpful advice. It was off the wall but I do think she meant well.

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        was he underage i thought he was 21

  175. WindyCityWondering says:

    LuAnn was talking with her mouth full at dinner – someone better let her know that is gross! Her boyfriend is weird – what is with the go easy on the grapefruit juice? Sonja is definately slutting out – guessing last season she was on her best behavior and that is ashame because she was fun.

    • nathania says:

      the boyfriend loves her TOO MUCH. What is up with that…she’s so boring every time she comes on camera I start to nod off.

      Omg…Sonja, yep the white trash in her is definitely coming out this season.

      Even though it was just a preview, when she had her full moon in the camera for the clips of this coming season I wrote her off instantaneously. No one ‘our age’ needs to let a camera get that close to our bare behind. I cringed with embarassment and there was shock on top of that. She needs to take out a personals ad and be done with it.

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      most likely they were having grapefruit juice and vodka
      i believe thats what is known as a greyhound
      back in the 70’s when anita bryant first went oh her rampage agaisnt gays we all boycotted o/j and started drinking that instead
      hers the funny thing about Anita back then
      hardly anyone printed this in the press but one of the reasons she was soooooooooooooo anti gay back then was she caughte her hubby in bed with another man
      same thing happened with her protoge Kathy Gifford ,found her first hubby in bed with a man
      guess who it was
      Anitas hubby
      LOL
      payback really IS a Bitch

      • TLM says:

        No, Really???? Anita’s first husband went gay? Why did I not know that story??

      • quincyil says:

        Was that Kathy Lee Gifford? I thought that an airline attendent put photos of herself and Kathy’s husband in a gossip rag. I don’t remember a man with him.

  176. MBDEA says:

    PS LuAnn’s French boyfriend looks like the love child of David Schwimmer and Roberto Benigni ; P

    • Mia Kulpa says:

      YES! OMG rofl

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      serioulsy though do we have to disect everyones looks on the show
      what has this guy actually done other then be with her to even deserve such critique

      • HD says:

        DJ-No disrespect but that man looks so much like the dude from Friends it has to be mentioned. Trust me, we are not the only one thinking it. Come on and ease up. He looks just like that guy from friends. He could be a nice person but that is how he looks. Who can overlook that?

        Just like when Andy asked Carla about her looking like Diana Ross’s daughter. She looks SO MUCH like her you can’t just act like she doesn’t. Come on. Dude looks like the guy from Friends. Enough said.

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        um…be on the show? that’s enough for me to rip him a new one.

  177. Nancy says:

    I could sum up my thoughts in two words.
    Poor Ally.
    When shrill finds out that we had a live “Chat room” it will make her see red!
    Lynn, do you think we can do this again? It was fun.
    Good night everyone, and God bless.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      She’ll start reading once the WWHL aftershow wraps up. I’m sure her assistants are on right now. Jill if you’re reading – if you can’t watch what you say in front of the camera – how do you behave when the camera is off???? Oh wait – I guess you told us on WWHL. You call your castmates f***ing b**ches when you think you’re off camera – and think that is okay. Who knew Bravo didn’t have your back. Did you really think they’d lose that footage on the cutting room floor??? Trying to be nice is boring. Showing your hypocritical behavior – that is a little more fun to see. But at least you’re socializing in your social circle. Is that your main problem with Alex – that she isn’t good enough to associate with you? Niceeeeeeeee.

      • nathania says:

        I know…what’s sad is I can imagine the bride was probably horrified…that that was the part of her wedding that will be remembered. It seems like Jill could have kept it zipped long enough for the wedding to take place.

        Ramona looked stunning in her dress, even if it was the wrong color. Ramona is impossible not to like, because she is the opposite of Jill. She OWNS her crazyness, she doesn’t make excuses for it, she just is what she is and doesn’t pretend to be anything else. I loved watching the interviews and her calling herself controlling and a bit crazy, etc. If Jill had an ounce of that kind of humility she might have a shot at redemption, but she doesn’t have a humble molecule in her body.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I was feeling bad for Ally as well – her mother is an embarrassing foolish woman. Maybe she will transfer to a school abroad next year.

  178. California35 says:

    Alex has a t-shirt out now 🙂

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      does it have the infamous thug in a cocktail dress line on it 🙂

    • TLM says:

      I think it looks very tacky, but I’m sure it’ll be all over stores on the Jersey shore boardwalk this summer…

  179. WindyCityWondering says:

    I want to thank everyone here this evening for making RHNY bearable to watch. The retool likely didn’t work but together we managed to make it fun. And I still hate Jill Zarin!

  180. codystl says:

    I was going to give Jill the benefit of the doubt, but she blew that in the first 30 seconds of opening her mouth. I can’t help myself and have to get my rant out so here goes…

    1. Jill has told so many stories (lies) about her and Bethenny’s relationship that she doesn’t even know what is true any longer. And, the false tears about their breakup is p*&#ing me off because SHE is the one that blew it.
    2. Seems like she’s trying to convince herself that she’s changed she says it so many times and she can’t stop herself from talking about other people behind their back. Too many examples to list in the first episode. What about all those snarky comments that, according to her on WWHL wasn’t meant to be on air. SHE STILL SAID THEM! dumb drag queen…
    3. Why does she care if Alex is going to the wedding?!? And what in hell does she need to be “prepared” for?
    4. Did Halloween come early this year? What the hell was she wearing on WWHL?

    Okay, I feel a little better now. 🙂

    • MBDEA says:

      Hello, Jill? Madonna’s Blonde Ambition tour called and they said you can KEEP that crappy ponytail knock-off.

    • Nancy says:

      If I had a first born I would give him/her away if I could have seen Bethenny’s face and hear the words that came out of her mouth when she first saw Jill on WWHL. I can only imagine.

  181. codystl says:

    Oh, and do you think Jill started to cry on Bobby’s shoulder when she saw the results of the poll? I thought Team Ramona would win but not by that big of a margin.

  182. VAgirl says:

    Someone upthread said Cindy reminded her of someone. She kind of reminds me of Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders.

  183. lillybee says:

    Jill is not happy tonight. Was she live streaming? Did anyone see it?

  184. BlueSky_Forever says:

    Jill is really in trouble! She said she wanted to come back this season so we could see the “real Jill” & that she has changed for the better! Um, no Jill you haven’t changed. Your mean girl, nosey ass bitchy personality is still the same.

    Gawwwd she looked terrible on WWHL. Who the hell cares if Alex & Simon go to the wedding Jill? Why do you have to know if Alex will be there? You are so insane, then you go on WWHL & yell at Ramona for not telling you that Alex was coming to the wedding.

    I think I love Andy. I adore Ramona. I even heart Ben Weiner for asking Jill “when is the last time you spoke to Bethenny?” That was sooo good! Wait ago Ben!

    Best moment ever…when the poll results are announced, the look on Jill’s face was priceless! Loved loved loved it!!! Then her Facebook page going down, it’s like Christmas wrapped up with getting engaged for Valentine’s Day & then winning the lottery. I sure hope Bethenny got to watch it too.

    • nathania says:

      that’s so strange she’s talking about ‘the real Jill’ and she comes on WWHL dressed like one of Madonna’s future retirement home back-up dancers. So this is the real Jill? eek.

  185. Mia Kulpa says:

    Andy totally rocks. He dissed Jill the whole show and she had to sit there and put a shit eating grin on her face and deal.

  186. Mia Kulpa says:

    The cream on top is Bethenny on vacation not giving a rip about any of it cuz SHE IS SO OVER JILL. It really reminds me a divorce like Bethenny said. Jill is the jilted one who still reads the love letters saying out loud to herself “You’ll never find anyone like me again.” Well, duh! “If I wanted to find YOU again I wouldn’t have divorced you”

  187. I told you that Jill would think that trending on Twitter was a compliment.

    Jill latest tweet:

    Jillzarin: I’ve never trended before! Excited!

    • nathania says:

      she looked completely crestfallen and shocked at the poll results, when she lost by a landslide…she really seems to believe people believe her when she says she’s changed.

      so what I have to wonder is who are all these people all her life who are either really stupid and have believed her all her life, or are just as big liars and so she doesn’t seem strange to them. you can’t be a forthright person and tolerate her for any lenght of time.

  188. MBDEA says:

    Well, it’s been fun as usual. Gotta go. BTW Lynn, I have behind-the-scenes insights on Top Chef MASTERS. Holla for an exclusive on some Bravo drama!

  189. MBDEA says:

    OK, one last dig at Jill because I HATE her:

    Jill: “I’m not a phony friend”

    The TRUTH behind that statement is Jill is a PHONY and she is NOT a friend.

    Alex is trying to unmasked the phony Jill that’s what Alex “is trying to accomplish.”

  190. MichellefromNY says:

    “Precarious situations” Kelly? Is that your vocabulary word of the day? It doesn’t really even make sense in the sentence! It’s like Camille’s “Pernicious” all over again.

    Oh and love how Jill says that she still loves Bethanny in some sort of sick, twisted way. As if Bethanny was the crazy one. Ugh! I HATE JILL ZARIN!!!

  191. lillybee says:

    Jill is trying to revise history.

  192. ches says:

    Bethenny must have been peed her pants laughing at that WWHL trainwreck.
    Jill, in that halloween costume, was no different than trying to dress a bulldog in a tutu and a tiara. Just doesn’t work.

    And that mangy picker/licker Ginger is a poor man’s Giggy.

    • California35 says:

      I hope she watched – so that she can laugh about it, but I hope she doesn’t tell us or comment about it…it would be better that way …

    • BlueSky_Forever says:

      lol, Andy’s reaction to Ginger….he was askeered !

      by the way, a bulldog in a tutu & a tiara would have looked better than Jill in her spanks thangy on WWHL!

  193. lillybee says:

    I noticed that at the art gallery party Jill and Sonja seemed very distant.

    • KookADoodleDo says:

      “When Jill texted me two hours before the wedding to ask if Alex was coming I didn’t have the stamina to tell her yes, as I know she would have been on the phone with me first, going nuts, and then with the bride screaming at her about why she invited Alex. She had already been badgering and torturing the bride the past few weeks at having the wedding at the home Jill sold four years ago. Jennifer’s friends bought the home and generously volunteered the location for Jenn and Glenn to have their wedding at. Jill can be at times her worst enemy and can’t get out of her own way. How can she act shocked that Alex was there and say she never knew Alex was coming, and then to Alex’s face lie and say she knew?!? I just don’t get it. “

      • vilzvet says:

        Wow! Lots of info there, this shows Jill’s true colors…can’t wait to go over and read the other blogs, I guess we shouldn’t be holding our breath for a blog from Jill.

  194. I don't have my notes says:

    I just had to come to the computer and share. It is 1:30 am here and I cannot sleep because I can’t stop laughing at how Jill looked on “What What Happens.” Oh dear Lord. My first thought was she is trying to become Bethenny. Then I thought this is her version of Brittany Spears shaving off all her hair.

    Ok, since I vented perhaps I can sleep now.

    • California35 says:

      Thanks for sharing lol. It is not as late here. I am still wondering what the heck she was thinking.

  195. ches says:

    Bobby isn’t a stupid man, so he must wonder why Jill’s “friends” all seem to drop her like a hot potato. If she can manage to make a little money of her own I predict she’ll start pulling the same crap on him. She probably placates him now because he is her meal ticket.

  196. California35 says:

    One of Bethenny’s friend was in the galleria printing party. I noticed because age said hi to Alex.

  197. lillybee says:

    Seeing is believing, Jill’s outfit was god awful.

  198. Mimisfbay says:

    OMG, I did not know that the beast colored her hair dark! Her look and behavior is even more pathetic than I imagined. Ohhhh this is just so good. JZ is declaring that she has changed and she looks like a clown. Andy Cohen is so funny tonight and he is not hesitating on the questions; the man is bringing it. I am really amazed at Ramona she is firing the accusations at JZ. Does the beast not know that we watch show? She has watched the tapes and knows her appalling behavior is all on tape, oh silly me, the producers put words in her mouth. Wait…her girdles will be in all department stores? Someone tell me this is more of her BS.

    Not sure how all of this will play out but the episode was a snooze fest. It was beyond sad. The only reason I will watch this dreck is that I wanna come here and read Lynn’s blog. Thanks Lynn for getting something up so quickly.

  199. Rabble Rouser says:

    I have so much to say…

    This episode SUCKED

    I am not feeling Alex this season. The fact that she got all worked up at seeing Jill at Ramona’s event was ridiculous. Yes, you have bad blood and no one expects you to be friends but what was with all the dramatics? Especially in her talking head where she mentions that Jill just walked in like nothing happened…well I think it’s a lot more pathetic to think that it happened yesterday.

    I actually do believe Jill when she says she was on the honorary committee; whether she walks or doesn’t isn’t any of Alex’s business. Really, after the confusion she almost had on the roof top why is she adding a bridge to throw herself over.

    I also couldn’t care less if Jill knew or not if she was going or not going to the wedding. So what?

    Jill is mean as ever. I caught a couple of minutes of WWHL before DH changed the channel ( I missed Ben Wiener-which is a good thing) but caught Jill trying to explain how it wasn’t fair how they used audio of her calling Alex a ‘fucking bitch’ when she was talking to a producer and made it look like she said it to her friends. Holy shit….you said it…it doesn’t matter to who or that you never intented for us to hear it.

    Ramona was horrible to those girls- talked shit about a cast mates brother for no seemingly logical reason and got caught…and not only wore white to a wedding but contaminated the cake. Nicely Done.

    Kelly, Sonjia, Luann and Cindy didn’t leave any sort of impression on me…with the exception of Kelly being bat shit crazy and that Sonia ‘loves the cock’.

    I can’t believe all the shit they were trying to sell…

    Ramona plug her wine and facial cream

    Alex her ‘image’

    Cindy’s spa

    And Jill was setting the stage that she could slide her sweaty ass off the leather seats of her luxury SUV- so she needed to invent her own line of spanks.

    Was Jill wearing her own Skqeez brand corset? She needs to fire her stylist for dressing her in that outfit. Who does she think she is .. Madonna??
    Bobby is a nice guy. he hugged her when she freaked out at Alex getting out of the car.

    Bethenny was so smart to runaway for a vaca with her family. She always said to leave the party early.

    Sonja’s butt. It looks like she has a giant bruise or tatoo on it!! I’m sorry, if you are over the age of 29 do not show the public your lady parts.

        Boston you have more class than all the ho’wives put together, & if it wasn’t for Alex & Ramona…I would not watch this sh*t. Except seeing Jill get her comeuppance is beyond good. It’s delicious!

    It looks like Patti Stanger gave Jill a makeover!

  204. boston02127 says:

    Good morning.

    RHONY was funny last night, boring but funny. Jill hasn’t changed a bit, if anything she’s gotten worse. I think it’s funny that she’s gone so far out of her way to let the world know she’s changed and she’s more horrid. I got the feeling that Bravo hates her too.

    I laughed when Jill saw Alex get out of the car at the wedding. Bobby put his arms around her and it looked like she started shaking, it was like she saw a vicious tiger running towards her. She acted so scared then minutes later she’s talking to two strangers saying Alex McCord that fu***** bi****. Jill’s discusting.

    Funny that Jill wants forgivness from the TV world but she can’t forgive Alex for delivering a message.

  205. boston02127 says:

    Jill’s tweet from last night~~~
    Thank you so much for all the compliments on my “look” tonight. It was a risk. Not all will like..but that’s fashion. At least I try?
    .
    Jill if you’re reading this blog, take my advice and throw that shirt out and never wear a pony tail again. ?….. When you had that shirt on at your house and were standing in your living room with that awful wallpaper, how did anyone see you?

    • vilzvet says:

      There are NO WORDS to describe how Jill looked! It was jarring to go from how beautiful Ramona looked, to Jill. Tacky! And it was also tacky for Ramona to have Mario bring out the Pinot cut-out board. We get it, Ramona, you are trying to sell your wine. I don’t think that line is going to do well, but that’s just me. Andy didn’t seem to care either. Ben Weiner, really? And the only question the kid could ask is about Bethenny. Oh brother. The show itself? Boring as hell, cannot wait for Lynn’s recap, we all know that is going to be better!

  206. BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

    Good morning~what did I miss? 😉

  207. lori024 says:

    That picture that Jill posted asking if she should wear that corset on tv was shockingly tasteless. I would have thought those nauseating Liberace walls would have been repainted by now.

  208. boston02127 says:

    On WWHL Jill made a nasty comment to Ramona about sticking her finger in the wedding cake. This coming from a woman who lets her dog (who licks his ass) lick her face.

  209. quincyil says:

    Owning your behavior is not good enough, something is really wrong with Ramona Singer. You can’t be cruel and wink when the young girl who just got hit on national TV for her clothes and skin leaves almost in tears. Sorry Ramona, I don’t call that mentoring.

    Alex is not smart and funny this episode either. She looks extremely stressed out. I want to hole the women accountable for their misbehaviors, but I think you have to do it with humor.

    The interviews were hatefests. I guess Ramona isn’t going to say it to Jill’s face this season as she said she did in the season three reunion. They used the interviews to slap each other. There was no “bzzzzzzt” and no “adios lunatic!” None of these women know how to be funny.

    I was disappointed in Simon. I actually thought he was going to be the new Bethenny and save the show. When he meets Jill and gives her that hug and then pushes his wife to go and be with Jill and her circle of fabulous people my heart sank a bit. Simon wants his wife to be with these women who call her a bitch at a wedding? Add this to the horrible things that Jill has done to Simon and Alex that Lynn keeps on this blog.

    I read a lot of articles where Jill Zarin said she has changed. Changed underwear. She’s now wearing it on the outside of her clothes.

    I love art. I really work at it and have done so for 14 years. I enter juried competitions and have my art in NYC, CT, Denver, LA and in a billionaires home in an island off of the Phillipines. I thought the artist was copying things that I have seens decades before. They know him and promote his work, but I don’t think a U of I college professor would put his art in the professor’s juried competition. The artists in Bravo’s competition last year were better than this artist. I looked at his color pallet and the finshed product. Years ago, Farah Fawcett made painting after putting paint on her nake body and then rolling on the canvas. The art world criticized that body of work. This hands/feet approach is really dated.

    • Kukulet says:

      I don’t disagree with Alex’s position on Jill…but I think she needs to learn to pick her battles (and she may have through the season…we’ll see). Nitpicking Jill over every little thing just makes Alex look shrewish.

      A lot of people are listed on honorary committees without attending the event. Make a donation (in Jill’s case, I’m sure the lowest amount she could safely get by with), get named to the honorary committee.

      Alex couldn’t have been too surprised that Jill Zarin would pay to get her name listed with an event without actually doing any of the work?

    • BlueSky_Forever says:

      That painting they made with their feet was ugly. It looked like a dark, brown blackish mess. So people sloshing their feet around is art – no, it’s not. It would have been so much better if each person had say a small square to “slosh” on. That might have been more fun to see what different people did. Instead, they sloshed all over the thing & ended up with piece of garbage.

      • quincyil says:

        I saw the colors on the canvas and knew that the result would be a brownish black when mixed with their feet stomping.

        There feet did not seem to be stained permanently, so I don’t know how permanent to color of the painting will be over time. If a client buys a painting, the artist has a duty to make sure the colors will have a lifetime. Did he use children’s poster paints so that the ladies would not have a problem?

        • Kukulet says:

          I’m not clear on what the artist’s goal was by having the women slosh around with their feet on the canvas? Did he have stencils laid down ahead of time, because it looked like, after the women were done, he was trying to remove a layer of something that had been taped to the canvas.

          There must be something more to it. A bunch of women stomping around on a blank canvas will make nothing but a big ugly blotch. Not even attractive Pollock like drizzle, just blah.

          • Kansas Girl says:

            Since his other canvases had words on them, I assumed he had stencils stuck to the canvas and was picking them off to reveal the words. You’d think we’d have seen the finished piece at some point. By not showing it, it kind of negated the ladies’ “work”. Perhaps the whole idea was just to get them to fuss over staining their shoes? Why were they having trouble washing the paint off? Were their dresses such that they couldn’t get their feet up high enough to wash them? LOL!

    just got this email from Jill LOL
    Hi everyone!!!

    Welcome to the Season 4 “PREMIERE” Episode 1 EXCLUSIVE Blog. There are excerpts available on bravotv.com but this will always be” the truth..the whole truth and nothing but the truth” !

    Coming into this season I can honestly say, I have never been so invigorated, refreshed and excited to begin filming. I was also looking forward to seeing all of the girls and meeting our newest housewife, Cindy Barshop. I had spent the summer redefining my life and focusing on the things most important to me… my family and friends. I hunkered down in the Hamptons, did Pilate’s three times a week, took walks on the beach, played with my grandchildren, hosted visiting friends and family, and rested. I also remember a stunning day in the Hamptons when my sister Lisa and I spent the morning walking on the beach talking about our lives past, present and future. We both collected a rock that day to remember it forever.

    It was times like that, that made me put things in perspective. I always say that you can have everything you want, but NOT always at the same time. Allyson was leaving for her freshman year in college and I needed to figure out “what I am supposed to do now?” I decided to come back to the show for many reasons. Bobby, my parents and sister were adamant that I come back for so many reasons but my final decision was made by all of you. My fans. You helped me in more ways that I can ever write in a blog. You know who you are when I say without you, I would never have come back to the show. You wrote me, sent me letters and gifts, and showed up in droves when I had appearances or book signings in your town. You shared your most intimate thoughts and problems with me and and as much as you thought I was giving you the advice, you were keeping me going and giving me the inner strength to forge forward.

    wives pic

    I watched the episode a few weeks ago so my memory has faded..but a few thoughts….from the episode and WWHL tonight (since I just got home)

    Ramona’s cocktail Party…did my dress look familiar? It was Marchesa and Lea Black wore the same one last week on the Miami reunion! How funny! Alex said I was agressive? I could not have been more mellow and relaxed. What should I have done? Walk in backwards? Alex said I did “horrible things.” What???? Alex acted like we are all friends with each other. (The part while we were standing with Debra, Missy, and Joannie) Debra and Missy don’t know even know Alex. I don’t think Alex even knows their names. She has met Joannie before. Joannie is a friend of Ramona’s for years and lives outside NYC. They had no idea what she was talking about. When Alex said I’ll see you Sunday..they had no idea what she was talking about and thought it was actually funny. Since Ramona is BFF with Alex now…she and Joannie should be at the wedding march to support her, right? Watch and see what happens.

    Of course it would be unrealistic to see the girls and pretend last season never happened. When I invited Kelly over to help me pack for Australia, the conversation about last season and the fight with “B” was very spontaneous. I was wrong to think I could flow into the filming process of Housewives without any feelings coming out. Kelly was great that day, and I really felt purged after we talked. I can’t make people just disappear from my history. My history makes me who I am today, good and bad and as much as I would like to erase things in my past and never talk about them again…sometimes you just can’t. BTW… I also over packed! Some of you asked tonight if the bedding Kelly was lying on is from my new line. YES..it is available at http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com . You will see the other sets in my den and Ally’s room in future episodes.

    It was funny watching Alex and Simon film the scene in her basement. They were very funny. The little bicker I had with Alex at the wedding is not a precursor for how this season will go for us. Many surprising things will happen. We fought hard and laughed harder.

    I think it was very tacky for Ramona and Alex to wear white to the wedding. (Or as Ramona said on WWHL live tonight…”off white”) Ramona said I should look on GOOGLE to see that cream is ok. Well I DID! Here is what it said:

    # Brides.com responded to a question from a reader concerning her fiance’s mother wanting to wear white to the wedding and the bride being against this. According to the website, the bride wins: “White, which traditionally has symbolized youth and purity, is worn only by the bride. That goes for ivory, cream, off-white, linen and all other pale variations.”

    # The Knot agreed that white shouldn’t be worn by any woman other than the bride: “Female guests should not wear white-it’s really, really not polite to take away from the bride on her special day by wearing her color. Try to avoid off-white and ivory, too, if at all possible. It’s not as if you don’t own or can’t buy something another color, right?”

    I was horrified Ramona stuck her dirty finger in the wedding cake. I am sure the bride was horrified as well. Ramona also ADAMANTLY said tonight that it was the brides second wedding? Really? The bride has been dreaming of getting married and is around 40. You would think since they are BFF she would at least know that it was her FIRST!

    Meeting Cindy was a fabulous surprise. She is an incredible girl who I adore, admire and respect. You are going to love her this season and trust me, she is not going to sit back as the new girl! Cindy is full of spunk and energy. Her party was lots of fun. I loved the foot painting as well. Peter Tunny is an incredible artist and he gave all the girls TUNNY MONEY as a gift. I put in a prominent place in my home and will treasure as a wonderful memory of Cindy. I wore an Alexander McQueen Dress. (Many of you ask me what I am wearing so this blog will try to give you some of the info you ask.) I took the paint on my feet all the way to Australia!

    I was horrified watching Ramona interview those poor girls and I had no problem tonight telling Ramona to her face how I felt. I was embarrassed for them and hope they aren’t scarred for life. I wish I could give them each a hug! If I had done that I would have been tarred & feathered by this group, the blondes.

    I was horrified that Ramona and Alex deliberately tried to set me up by not telling me Alex was invited to the wedding. Why? I hadn’t seen them in months and was hoping to see them without drama. Ramona said “What fun would that be? “The bride and groom were staying with my BFF Amelia. Amelia told be before the wedding they were coming. I didn’t know they were walking in with Ramona. If we weren’t filming, I don’t think they would have been invited nor do I think Ramona would have had them stay over. I know they haven’t been there since. I’m just sayin….

    Ramona continues to have diarrhea of the mouth when she talks behind her best friend, Carole’s back about her boyfriend Howie (who happens to be Cindy’s brother!) More will come out about that next week but watch it again so you really understand how awful it was for poor Carole.

    wwhl

    A follow up to tonights WWHL.

    Ramona continues to throw the word MEAN GIRL around. I am just sick of it. I think it was obvious who the mean girl was on tonights episode and I will let you decide as the weeks pass what your verdict is. I always try to be a real friend, share and give advice when asked. That’s who I am and always will be. Ramona also attacked me as a business woman tonight. You can read my BIO on jillzarin.com under PR KIT and see for yourself. She should be ashamed of herself.

    A lot of you asked me what I was wearing tonight and how I look so young. My new shapewear line Skweez Couture by Jill Zarin will be launching in the Fall. I wore one of corsets in the line with body shapewear leggings. Did you notice they sparkle? Everyone thinks I lost weight. I wish I did! The leggings go all the way up and have target compression and a bootie lifter! Who knew you could lift a bootie with shapewear? I started wearing my hair back at the Skweez Couture launch party and I fell in love with it. I even added hair pieces. The extra hair is a little darker than mine but I did not die it darker! I have an oval face so it appears I am thinner but honestly, I have been using contouring makeup and a new skin regimen I live by. I am still working out a mix of stuff but will share when I have it perfected. I turned 47 this year. Not bad?

    Please let me know what you think of my newsletter and what kinds of things you want to read about from me. I aim to please! Keep checking back to my website for mid week updates, new photos and appearances. I will be speaking in Charlotte, NC, Pittsburgh and at Brown University on April 25th for a Reality Television Symposium that is open to the public. Details on jillzarin.com .

    Let the games begin!

    Love and Kisses XOXO

    Jill ( Bobby and Ginger too!)

      I see a (first?) repeat of WWHL on Saturday morning at 10:30 EST so mark your calendars. I did not DVR it last night unfortunately so I have to wait, LOL.

    • PJ says:

      Oh Jill you are horrifying in fact you bring horrifying to a whole new horrifying lever of horror. You are horrifying to look at you are horrifying to listen to. The ugliness inside you is horrifying and it’s something you just can’t hide. Here is what I think of your newsletter……………..there are no words that can adequately express my disgust for you. What would I like to hear from you in the future? Well to start with the truth would be nice and after that nothing.

    • boston02127 says:

      Get me a barf bag stat. St. Jill. Ugh.

    • Louisadelmar says:

      I see Jill was picking and choosing her ‘wear white to wedding’ quotes.

      “•Peggy Post, the director of the Emily Post Institute and a columnist at Good Housekeeping, wrote in that magazine: “Yes, you can wear white, just as long as it doesn’t look remotely bridal.”

      •Dear Sugar believes that wearing a dress with a hint of white in it is fine, but nothing should compete with the bride’s gown.

      •Brides.com responded to a question from a reader concerning her fiancé‘s mother wanting to wear white to the wedding and the bride being against this. According to the website, the bride wins: “…white, which traditionally has symbolized youth and purity, is worn only by the bride. That goes for ivory, cream, off-white, linen and all other pale variations.”

      •The Knot agreed that white shouldn’t be worn by any woman other than the bride: “Female guests should not wear white—it’s really, really not polite to take away from the bride on her special day by wearing her color. Try to avoid off-white and ivory, too, if at all possible. It’s not as if you don’t own or can’t buy something another color, right?”

      •And the blog A Dress A Day advises against wearing white, pale pink, pearl gray, and red. Red, you say? Yes, because red isn’t a bridal color, but it’s dramatic. “Wearing red is an attention-grabber, and it is rude to try to take attention from the bride,” the site cautions. “(A corollary of the ‘do not wear red’ rule is ‘do not wear dresses cut down to (or slit up to) THERE.’) This rule goes double for the groom’s ex-girlfriends. This rule goes triple for the groom’s ex-girlfriends who are there as the ‘and Guest’ of somebody else.”
      We think there are too many factors to consider to give a solid yes or no. If the person whose wedding you’re attending is a real stickler for tradition, then it might piss her off if you wear a dress in a matching shade. However, if she’s a modern woman and your dress doesn’t resemble a wedding dress in the least bit, then go ahead and wear white. Just know the bride’s grandma is probably going to be talking about you at the bridal party brunch the following day.”

      • 2Stupid says:

        What is the etiquette for calling a guest a f*#@!g bitch at the wedding Jill? Also, in the olden days, (the times white was still true) black was forbidden at weddings also, especially during the day! Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

    • TLM says:

      “I always say that you can have everything you want, but NOT always at the same time.” Isn’t that from Bethenny’s Naturally Thin book – “You can have it all, just not all at once” ??????

    • quincyil says:

      Thank you for sharing this. I hope you post these when you receive them as I and others want this information.

      Q

    • If you had it like this says:

      Interesting that there was no mention or explanation of the comment that the wedding was ‘above’ Alex and that she was a F’ing Bitch. There’s really no way to spin that….

  213. Kukulet says:

    If we weren’t filming, I don’t think they would have been invited nor do I think Ramona would have had them stay over. I know they haven’t been there since. I’m just sayin….

    How does Jill know who stays at Ramona’s house or not? Is she lurking in the bushes with binoculars? Is Ramona’s housekeeper required to present Jill with a printout of all the guests who stay? Just sayin’…

    • PJ says:

      Just who is Jill? Why does she think she is so far above Alex? People that think like Jill are pure poison. Jill is even worse than Kelly.

  214. Kansas Girl says:

    “That’s who I am and always will be.”

    This is a key phrase, I think. Gloria says it a lot. Likely Jill grew up hearing it and believing that view to be reality. She not only has a skewed vision of her role in life, but she believes it is the correct way to be. If she believes she will always be the same, talk of changing herself is just talk. Peh!

  215. I think the speculation on this blog is correct, Alex and Simon are on friendly terms with Jill. The paragraph below says it all. Surprising things will happen ?

    “It was funny watching Alex and Simon film the scene in her basement. They were very funny. The little bicker I had with Alex at the wedding is not a precursor for how this season will go for us. Many surprising things will happen. We fought hard and laughed harder”.

    • Zoey says:

      Maybe Jill realized Alex was not going to back down nor take her crap this season, so Jill could either be called out for everything and embarrassed repeatedly, or she could show a little more respect to Alex.

  216. Error404 says:

    Oh dear god I just had to stop reading jill’s blog like a third of the way in! It’s all bull, petty defensiveness, and a complete waste of everyone’s time! This woman wouldnt know a sincere feeling if it got her pregnant! 500 words yet all it says is “loser!”

    • HD says:

      I had to stop reading it too. Who cares. She is still the same evil person dressed in a horrible corset and some gofoy horse tail attached to her head.

    • quincyil says:

      I think something is coming and it’s good to know everything about Jill Zarin.

    • California35 says:

      I am with you, I only read the first paragraph I scrolled down and saw how long the whole things would be, so I stoped. It is better to see what you guys wrote about the parts you want to talk about.

      This woman!!! ugh

  217. HD says:

    Ramona completely disgusted me last night. Not only did she embarrass those women, she did it on national TV which was horrible. Who does that? Giving that young woman her skin care line. If the skin care worked SO WELL you wouldn’t still be getting plumpers and injectables in your face. Give me a damn break! That really pissed me off. Just because you think it doesn’t mean you have to say it. What she did was horrible!

    • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

      Hi Hannah~
      I missed everything as usual. I have been trying to read all the post from last night. Whew! lol

      • HD says:

        Good morning, Baabee. Last night was funny mainly because of WWHL when Jill came on in costume. LOL! The RHNYC was so so of course I will keep watching though. 🙂

    • California35 says:

      I agree ” Just because you think it doesn’t mean you have to say it. ”
      Darn Ramona, do you even remember how nervouse one gets in interviews?? Thanks for making it worse.

  218. boston02127 says:

    Jill Zarin—I know you read this blog. In regards to your newsletter and people saying you looked so thin……Are these people in a 500+ lbs group? You looked like a fat pork chop with that flab of yours sitting on your lap and your blubber bursting out near your armpits. And you didn’t look younger one bit. You look like a washed up hooker trying so hard to look like Bethenny.

    I highly doubt that you did pilates last summer. Did you attend one class? As I remember, you could hardly make it up the stairs to Alex’s house without letting out your usual sighs of ugg that you do when you’re doing anything physical. You’re lazy and that’s why nothing you do works out for you. No brand. Nothing.

    Your look on WWHL was horrifying. You looked like you belonged in a horror show. Save that outfit and hair style for next Halloween. And you’re not nice. You’re far from it, you’re still a mean, lying bitch that has mental problems. Go get some help.

    • boston02127 says:

      And another thing Jill. Yes…Ramona did stick her finger in the cake, big deal. You’re the one that lets that poor ugly dog of yours WHO LICKS HER ASS lick your face!

      • Cusi77 says:

        Boston_ Let me add to this to Jill,

        Ramona has more class digging her finger in the wedding cake than you letting out of your mouth that Alex was beneath all the people around in that party… it is poison from your heart!
        You are a malicious no-body!

  219. OneMoreInBoston says:

    ‘lo all. Well, I have nothing more to really add to any of the comments- you all said exactly what I was thinking.

    Except about Alex.

    Alex looks like she’s going to snap. She’s coming off as grim and humorless. Alex may be the one that has the “breakthrough” this season.

    While Simon gets big props from me for the lovely things he said about his wife being a model, he lost a lot of my respect from the way her was acting in their office.

    Here she is, 36, not a spring chicken, mother of two, discussing her modelling portfolio with her agent and he was so fucking annoying! If my husband handed me a barbell and tried to get me to use it during that conversation he would’ve needed a paid of pliers to remove it from his ass- I would’ve slammed it so far in there! WTF SIMON?

    And why was the agent asking SIMON about her portfolio? Is he her agent? Is he representing her? Is he a photographer? Something seemed so…off…about the whole scene. very Svengali.

    So am I to understand that since Simon isn’t working that Alex is the sole breadwinner? How much $ could Simon be making with his start up company? She just seems soooo stressed out. And drinking ALOT.

    And the other girls were really, really mean to her at the art gallery-totally excluding her. How hard would have been to wave her over to include her? But why does she allow that? She had every right, particularly because Bravo cameras were filming to walk right up and smoosh her way into the group. I would have.

    I’m seriously distressed about Alex!

      I’m feeling the same thing about Alex. I hope she makes it out unscathed this season. The drnking, her new found voice and her new found self esteem is a little too much so far. I hope she does not change for the worse. I’m rooting for Alex & Ramona.
      Also how weird for Sonja and Luann to flirt with each others boyfriends. Did any one catch Sonja say that Jaques dated a friend of hers and this friend still raves about him? Luann gave Sonja a look.

    • Kelly_Has_Big_Shoulders says:

      I’m also worried about Alex and I hope she makes out of the season unscathed. She has found her voice and a new found self esteem also conceited to me. I hope she does not change too drastically. I’m rooting for her and Ramona. Jill is still and will always be disgusting. I can see why her and Kelly are such BFF’s. Her saying that Alex was socializing at an event that above her was so mean and rude just like Kelly with her I’m up here you’re down here comment to Bethenny.

    • If you had it like this says:

      I’m a little worried about Alex and agree that she seems grim and humorless. Let’s hope she gets her sea legs soon! I have a feeling Sonja has been spending a little too much time with The Countless and perhaps her feelings about Alex have been influenced by her. Lulu never even tries to hide her distaste for Alex and Simon. I read Sonja’s blog and it wasn’t too positive about Alex. They are obviously getting into it next week. Sadly, I don’t think any of the ladies, except Ramona, really like Alex or treat her with much respect. Jill’s going to fake a relationship to try and be more liked by the fans.

    @boston2127, I can’t say anything about Jill that you haven’t already. Thank you for taking the words out of my mouth. I agree with your take on Jill 100%.
    What a BITCH she proved herself on WWHL she has not changed. She looked like a stripper and was trying to deflect all her wrong doings onto Ramona.
    Another thing Kelly did she steal Betenny’s line about Alex & Simon going to the opening of an envelope?

    Note to Jill: Jill you are unpopular it’s just like High School only a lot more people don’t like you. It doesn’t matter if you pretend to be nice to Simon and Alex no one is going to like you any better. You have made me realize that some people are unpopular for a reason; because they are not nice people, they are unlikable. People saw the real Jill last season, you know the one where YOU destroyed your friendship with Bethenny. Bethenny is the real deal and although she may have flaws she is honest and real and that’s why she is popular and you are not.

    Just to let you know your line of shape ware is tacky and probably won’t sell any better than your line of sheets did. Your name on a line of anything is not a plus in its favor. If I have to buy sheets I would avoid your brand like the plague even if it’s on clearance. Get the picture?

    BTW there is no team Jill. Team Jill consists of Jill and Kelly and a plate of chicken wings. How much did you have to pay your “team” to vote for you? You still lost.

    Sorry my comment posted twice I thought the first did not make it. oops.

    I am not a fan on JZ by any means. I am going to say this to be fair…..In Jill’s defense…..She’s been talking about a shapewear line for a while….well over a year….So I don’t know if it’s fair to say she copied Bethenny here.
    Ramona has a skin care line and Bethenny followed suit with one….so does that mean BF copied RS? No….because I think room in the market for both, as I am sure the lines have their difference. Say Bethenny is out to target 18 -39 market, whereas Ramona’s line given her being in her 50’s targets an older market.
    Same thing with the Shapewear. Bethennys target audience I am sure is different than Bethennys, so why not have the different lines. If anything it’s great for the consumer as it makes more competition and could get us better deals for the product due to competiton.
    Anyway, that’s my thought here on this.

    WWHL was worth staying up for. I didn’t like the bickering between Ramona and Jill, but what was more interesting was watching how Andy let it go on and on and on without intervening, then looking at the camera with a look of glee.

    As for RHNY#4, Ramona was rude to the young women and I hope she apologizes to them for her on camera behavior. As much as I like Ramona, she is still a shit stirrer extraordinaire.

    Kelly has learned nothing and apparently still has not sought professional help. So sad watching her last night.

    I am disappointed in Sonja. I was going to write more, but I’ll just leave it at that for now.

    Luann. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

    Cindy. Hmmmmmmm, this could be interesting.

    Alex: finally got her backbone. I like the way she didn’t let Jill get away with her BS. She is going to need better reinforcement from Simon if she is going into battle with Jill.

    Speaking of Jill, it was no surprise to watch her contradictory behavior. She slams other people while saying she’s changed, yet nothing has changed except the level of snark and bitterness towards other people. It became obvious that she is baffled at how Bethenny has become successful and liked while she tries, but can’t get people to like her. One thing I noticed last night was how the show never picked up any steam. In previous seasons, you could always count on Bethenny to bring the funny and the interesting. Without her, and maybe this is just Ep1, the show didn’t seem to go any where. The talking heads weren’t enough. Even the “drama” of the Hamptons wedding didn’t compare to the sparkle of what Bethenny brought to this show.

    It just exposed Jill as an habitual liar, Ramona as rude, Luann and Sonja as, well, dull, Kelly is still delusional and lost. Alex was interesting to watch, but she can’t carry the entire show.

    As feared, the retooled RHNY did not meet the viewers’ expectations. The talking heads were vicious and the one liners were recycled. The actual scenes were boring and the dialog was forced. Bethenny left the party early and apparently took all the presents with her! The “drama” moving forward will be trite and the scenery had better be spectacular – and last time I checked none of you remotely qualify to call yourselves GIRLS!!!

  227. Adgirl says:

    Holy crap. 607 comments already????

    Does anyone remember if Kelly has been on WWHL (other than when she first started on RH)? I know Andy declined to have her right around when Scary Island aired. I think he doesn’t like her and didn’t want to give her a platform to pound on Bethenny.

  228. Adgirl says:

    I don’t know if I can get interested in Cindy VagWax. I don’t see how she fits in with these ladies. I don’t think she is attractive and I really don’t want learn more about personal grooming “down there”.

  229. prof addicted to reality tv says:

    Watching it again right now: Alex looks WAY WAY better in “no makeup” makeup.

  230. I says:

    I am SO relieved to find this blog!!!

    Of all the Housewives from all the various cities, the HWs of NY spark the most feeling from me: Zarin is SO unlikeable, Kelly is just horrible, and I have become a huge fan of Bethany.

    All that said, its sort of a relief to find a space on the internet to vent about a couple of these asinine people. JZ was painful to watch on Cohen’s show last night but the person I’m most struck by this week is Alex.

    Ive always found her to be somewhat a voice of reason amongst Jill and Kelly but it seems from recent previews, she may have become corrupted by the ugliness of these other women and thusly turned to their dark, ugly side. That would be a sad day. I hope she saves herself.

    Thanks for providing this blog and for all the comments!

    If you listen closely, at the rooftop party when Alex walks up to the group women, Jill is actually talking about Allyson – not Alex. Apparently she was telling a story involving her daughter overreacting (crying and screaming). I listened to it a few times to make sure, because at first it did sound like she said Alex.

    By the look on Alex’s face, apparently she thought she heard her own name too. It’s understandable that she was livid, believing that Jill was badmouthing her to a group of women which included her friend Ramona. But if you listen again…I’m pretty sure it was Allyson she was speaking about (THAT time).

    All of that said…Jill is a complete moron. As Ramona once said “she just doesn’t get it. She wants to get it, but she doesn’t.” In my personal opinion, Jill has never been likeable. Not even in the first two seasons. The only thing that made her popular was her friendship with Bethenny. One of many examples? She freaked out at the fashion show when she was seated in the second row. She’s so self-absorbed and narcissistic it’s mind-boggling. Her mother is portrayed as some wise old soul, but I don’t see it. She’s really just a self-absorbed yenta with a big mouth and a lot of trite and very cliche advice. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. They’re both trainwrecks.

    Getting back to why Jill doesn’t get it…she honestly believes she’s going to redeem herself this season. She’s delusional! It’s hard to watch. She’s so transparent and inauthentic it’s ridiculous. She thinks by giving a cheesy fake smile on WWHL and changing her look (YIKES!), she will be able to reinvent herself. It’s not going to happen. All of the efforts to improve her image will fail because she is a PR nightmare who is totally out of touch with reality.

    Viewers can see right through her nonsense and are socially savvy enough to see her attempts at reconciliation and apologizing as just what they are…a disingenous PR stunt to rehabilitate her image.

    Guess what, Jill? The only reason you were EVER liked by fans was because you were friends with Bethenny. You think Bethenny owes you something, but it is YOU who owes HER!! You were (and ARE) nothing without Bethnny around, because her humor cushioned your idiocy.

    Jill is completely blind to her own lack of sense, and she’ll never TRULY accept responsibility for her atrocious behavior and PR blunders.
