I Hate Jill Zarin Bethenny Ever After April 11, 2011
BREAKING NEWS! BREAKING NEWS! BREAKING NEWS!
The Real Housewives of New York –
On the premier episode of The Real Housewives of New York Jill and Alex argued over the Marriage Equality March and the fact that Jill Zarin as an “Honorary” Committee Member would not be attending the March.
Jill told Alex that she was going to an “out of town” wedding and wouldn’t be able to attend the March yet Alex told viewers that she was attending the same wedding in The Hamptons yet was driving back in order to participate in the March the next day.
The Marriage Equality March took place on Sunday, September 26 2010 http://www.meny.us/march
Why then does the bride and groom both say that they were Married on September 21, 2010? A full five days prior to the March that caused all the ruckus!
Did this couple get married on Tuesday, Sept 21 and then hold their reception at a private home 4 days later? That is possible but then why did we see the Housewives walking into the church?
What is going on and what is Bravo trying to pull? If the entire church scene was staged (I didn’t see a bride or groom at the church) does that mean that Ramona getting caught gossiping outside of the church was a set up too?
That whole scene was a bit strange, why would Ramona stop right there and demand everyone’s attention while she told this odd story about a cigar and a dead friend? This woman standing behind her with her hand on her hip looked so fake and contrived that even before knowing that the wedding date may have been staged by producers, this scene with Ramona seemed suspect.
We already know that editors dubbed in Jill’s comments spoken to a producer and tried to make us believe she said them to two guests at the wedding. (Still wrong Jill Zarin!) What else is Bravo up to?
I really don’t know what the crazy Bethenny haters are going to find to complain about this episode. I laughed, I cried, it was better than Cats. Corny line but so true.
Practicing with her Skating With The Stars partner Ethan in New Jersey. Bethenny calls it “full on hard core training” and it is clear that Johnny Weir can eat his words, she is working hard, she’s taking it seriously and she is trying her hardest. Bethenny is working with Ethan on the dangerous move of a “Death Spiral” and Ethan has her doing it after four weeks of training. That is incredible.
I love that Bethenny recognizes that Ethan is a great partner because he is patient and calming but that he also doesn’t let Bethenny get away with any of her nonsense. They ran their whole first routine at practice, how can anyone say she isn’t working hard enough? I predict they will finish in second place on Skating With The Stars. How’s that for going out on a limb?
Jason and Bethenny shopping for jeans was completely hysterical. Jason talks to himself in the changing room complaining about the $245 price tag, but worse Jason doesn’t want to admit that Bethenny is right, his old jeans are hideous and he desperately needs new ones. The best part had to be the sales guy when he learns Jason is only buying one pair of jeans, and he says, “after all that?”
Bethenny announces she will be hosting Thanksgiving dinner for their family, the table talk is hysterically funny but better than that was the Hoppy’s trying to lift the heavy glass table top. Jason is concerned about Bethenny having the strength to lift it and she looks at him dead in the eye and with a straight face says, “I’m an Olympic skater, ok” For some reason, that made me laugh out loud!!!
Jason tells us that he knows exactly how to push Bethenny’s buttons and just for kicks he puts his finger directly on it, holds it down and watches the fireworks happen. I love Jason!
Jason and Bethenny are going to Montreal to visit the bottling plant for Skinnygirl Margarita’s. The scenes on the private jet were great. Jason said he’d never been on a private plane before and it was so fun watching him get excited over the whole experience. Jason mistakenly brings up the mile high club and asks his wife if she’s a member, when Bethenny only turns red and grins, he realizes he doesn’t want to know the answer, even though I think we all just got the answer. Some things are better left as a mystery.
Bethenny addresses Jason’s friends and family in Hazelton, telling them not to worry about Jason adjusting to life in the big city, he’s doing just fine.
It was really great watching Bethenny and Jason just enjoying each other, they missed their baby but recognized that this time alone was really good for them. They walked the streets of Montreal just being together on a mini-vacation and getting to know each other and sleeping for nine full hours.
The tour of the bottling plant really was a shock to Bethenny and Jason, back in New York seeing the product on liquor store shelves is one thing but to see hundreds of thousands of bottles flying through the plant and huge vats of tequila in an enormous warehouse is a bit mind blowing. We all watched Bethenny come up with this idea four years ago, she shared the recipe with all of us yet people are buying her bottled version by the thousands!
Probably the only negative party of this episode was the discussion of Bethenny’s mother. This scene certainly seemed to be set up by producers, it was just a little strange the way Julie came in and brought up the subject and I really wish it was avoided all together. It was the dark spot on an otherwise excellent, fun and upbeat episode. Unfortunately Bethenny had recently learned that her mother sold her childhood photographs to a tabloid and had called Bethenny a liar. I remember when that happened and I remember thinking that this was unforgivable, whatever shot this mother/daughter had of reconciling was certainly gone now. Bethenny confirmed that tonight by saying she’ll never speak to her mother again.
I would hope that this episode has to put to rest some of the ugly haters who say some really horrible things about Bethenny. Jason and Bethenny have a wonderful marriage, they get along so well, they really enjoy each other’s company and love each other. It isn’t a matter of Jason bending to his wife’s will, he is a strong partner and nobody’s doormat.
Her business is the real deal, this isn’t a Housewife writing a book about manners, or slapping her label on foreign made bed linens and spanx knock off’s. Bethenny’s business is solid and huge and she proved that tonight as well.
Bethenny is hands on mom, taking baths nightly with her daughter and husband, this is a happy and well-adjusted family. There are crazy arguments through laughter and the people around Bethenny genuinely like her. Bethenny has gotten everything she’s worked so hard for and it is really lovely to watch her enjoying it all.
Note to Jill Zarin: We all know that you lied when you said you don’t watch Bethenny Ever After, we know that you’re kicking yourself for screwing Bethenny over last year. We all know that you’ve fantasized about what it would be like to be on Bethenny’s show. You wonder what would have happened if you hadn’t acted like a vicious cruel woman. You wonder, don’t you, if you would you have made guest appearances, or maybe you would have been on every show as Bethenny’s bestie?
Jill, hopefully it will make you feel better knowing that you’re such a horrible woman that Bethenny probably would have kicked you to the curb anyway. Jason doesn’t like you and I’m sure they wouldn’t want your negativity, pettiness, cruelty and toxicity around their beautiful baby. You actually made it a whole lot easier for Bethenny to purge the trash! And so, I want to thank you because I really enjoyed Bethenny Ever After tonight, (as I’m sure you did too) it wouldn’t have been the same with you. You can have it all, just not all at once. It is in Bethenny’s book, Jill stole the line as her own but Bethenny has shown that you certainly can have it all and all at once.
The previews for next week look a little more intense as Bethenny prepares Thanksgiving Dinner for Jason’s family.
Why are the Thugs recycling their cocktail dresses? Sonja Morgan is seen wearing a feather covered brown number in the previews for The Real Housewives of New York, then seen wearing the same dress on The Rachel Ray Show. Alex McCord has a beautiful black dress on at Bethenny’s birthday party and is shown in the previews wearing the same dress on RHONY at Sonja’s party that will air this week. I know the economy is bad but these ladies have a lot of choices from designers who would love to see their dress on a Housewife on TV and will borrow it to them at no charge. Why are we wearing the same dress more than once?
I feel another prediction coming on, who would like to bet me that Sonja Morgan goes home with David Arquette on Thursday night after Watch What Happens Live?
More Jill Zarin news:
This article is an interview with Jill that took place a year after Jill and Bobby Zarin sold their house in the Hamptons, Jill certainly seems to be talking about the house as being currently hers…She doesn’t say anything about it already being sold and that they are merely renting it (for a huge amount of money) for the summer.
Which means they effectively paid 535,000 to rent it for a total of four months which is $133,750 a month for June & July 2008 & 2009. Sort of changes the “Jill Zarin is a Real Estate Genius” theory out of the water!
In the NY Post item above, Jill was busted and had to talk quickly explaining about the house sale and the deal that they made. I think we can safely assume she would never have come clean if she wasn’t found out.
This is another one of those lies that need not be told. Why would we care if she had just recently sold the home and was staying in it for two summers as part of the deal? It isn’t a big deal, I wonder if she just enjoys lying to see if she can get away with it. I know I’ve said it before but Jill really thinks that she is smarter than viewers, she keeps proving it over and over.
Quincy had a great idea, she thinks that now that Cat Ommanney from The Real Housewives of DC seems to have some time on her hands, she might make a good addition to The Real Housewives of New York. I love the idea, I’d love to hear Cat call Jill out with a nice firm, “Bullocks!” What do you think?
Until Next Time….
