I Hate Jill Zarin – Pregnant In Heels / Housewives News

Pregnant In Heels by Quincy IL

Rosie Pope’s two assistants, Hannah and LT, are changing the clothes on their pregnant mannequin again this week.  Her gay male assistant requests permission to leave work early.  He performs with another man they call themselves, “Kiki Twins.”   They are laughing and playful.  Rosie says he can leave work early.

The first mom that we meet is Tanya, a type A control freak who is a strategy consultant and has a toddler.  She lives in Chelsea with Romit, her husband and her young daughter.  Tanya hated the photos taken after the birth of her daughter and she wants Rosie’s help with makeup and hair right after the delivery. Tanya says that she is a shopper with expensive tastes.  Her husband calls her a “White Tiger.” She is rare, exotic, and she has fangs behind her smile.  Tanya wants help managing her marriage, social life, toddler, professional life and calendar.  Rosie realized that Tanya needs an assistant. After discussing this with Rosie, Tanya requests a gay male assistant. Rosie understands as she has one for herself.

Rosie looks at the apartment and gives Tanya the mommy IQ test. This week the questions about taking care of a baby boy.  Tonya doesn’t know if they want the baby circumcised.  The care of the penis is discussed.  When Rosie sees that Tanya has glasses in a bottom draw in the kitchen, she is surprised that the toddler does not touch the glasses.  Rosie feels Tanya rules the house with an iron fist.

Rosie’s second couple has intimacy issues. Ali and her husband met in gemology school and they work together as jewelry designers.  They have been together for 5 ½ years and Ali thinks she is young and hot unlike so many other mothers in NYC.  Ali is one week away from delivery and she doesn’t want to be touched. Her husband, Adam, wants Rosie to find a way to force his wife to have sex.  Rosie rolls her eyes.  Their sex life was great until Ali was very pregnant.  Ali’s pregnancy IQ test is on baby poop.  Rosie brings a collection of soiled diapers.  Ali had done her homework and she passes the poop questions. Rosie has them record themselves in the bedroom so that she can understand what the issues are.

The couple meets Rosie at the office of a sex therapist who asks embarrassing questions on camera and has a collection of dildos of all sizes and colors in a kit.  She wants to show the couple how sex works at the end stages of pregnancy, but they are embarrassed to watch and discuss this on national TV.

The group looks at the DVD that the couple recorded in their bedroom. There is a television running and Ali is texting someone on her blackberry. Ali uses the pregnancy pillow to separate herself from her husband in bed.   They decide to leave after the therapist asks Adam about masturbation.  They are told to remove the TV set and blackberries from their bedroom.  Rosie teaches us that the Prince Edward is the penis.  She will have to find another way to help the couple with their intimacy problems.

Tanya wants a pre- baby bash and Rosie thinks Tanya needs an assistant to help her with her life so Tanya can concentrate on her two children when she is not working full time and on the board of a charity.  Rosie’s assistant prepares a list of gay male assistant applicants.  Rosie feels that the first applicant’s party concept is stupid.  He has a circus/petting zoo theme.  Another assistant seems to be a cross dresser who sings.  Finally, we meet Dan who wears glasses and seems more normal than the other applicants who offer to help friends buy vibrators and sing the ABCs incorrectly.  An assistant is not side kick according to Rosie. Dan is in for a rough ride. Dan is good with the toddler and helps put Tonya’s shoes on so he is hired.   Dan has an extensive list from Tanya and Rosie. He is worried about completing all of the tasks.

Rosie gives her own husband, Darren, a plastic container and sends him to the other room to give a donation for her fertility workup. He doesn’t seem to like having this discussion on national TV, but he obeys.

Rosie meets with Adam for golf with a twist. Adam puts on a pregnancy suit and can’t hit his balls as far with the golf club. He then gets on the ground with his legs up and feels distress.  Then he gets on all fours and he knows some of the issues that his wife has right now. Rosie is surprised that Adam is so traditional when he talks about the baby and his wife.

Dan, Tanya’s assistant is having trouble preparing for the party. He has candles, cake, balloons, flowers, invitations, and a boss, Tanya, who calls him constantly on the phone to ask him how things are going. Rosie helps with the venue and helps supervise Dan.

Tanya and Dan go to Rosie’s store to shop for a dress for the party.  Rosie helps Dan and sends him off to complete the tasks for the party preparation. LT is a stylist and he has trouble with Tanya as she does not like his options. LT thinks Dan is going to have a hard time.  She says she is going to go into labor trying to zip her dress so an LT rushes to her aid.

Rosie takes Ali shopping for sleepwear that is sexy when the mother is 9 months pregnant.  She offers some items that are rejected immediately, but Ali does get a black silk pajamas.  Ali does not appreciate the silly suggestions from Rosie.

Dan, the assistant, has set up the party and is waiting for Tanya, but he could not find entertainment in the time frame that he had.  The cake is damaged and he does not know what to do. Rosie has someone buy frosting and she takes a pink tissue paper out of a box to make the care look gorgeous again. Rosie is shocked that Dan did not have time to find entertainment. Rosie’s Assistant, LT, and his partner and their band are dressed and within a short period of time and they appear on stage.  The Kiki Twins are dressed alike. They sing and dance in sync.  The Kiki Twins are a hit.

Rosie has a gift for Ali and Adam. Ali and Adam are taken to a hotel in SoHo for a babymoon, the last hurrah before a baby is born. The hotel has candles, flowers, and a great view.  They eat strawberries with chocolate and there is ice cream and pickles.   Adam gives Ali, a gift for their baby daughter, tiny diamond earrings.  Ali loves them and can’t wait to pierce her daughter’s ears. There is also sexy lingerie there in a box.  Adam feels that the night was great.

One week later, Rosie gets a call to come to Ali’s apartment.  Ali is in labor and Rosie rides with them to the hospital. They worry about getting a cab for a woman about to deliver so Rosie hails the cab and then they tell the driver.  Ali has painful contractions, but she breathes as she was taught to do and does not complain.  New York has traffic congestion again, but they make it to the hospital in time. Rosie leaves them at the door.

Later, Rosie visits Ali, Adam and Olivia Giselle at their home.  The family is perfect.  Rosie says she hopes that they are over their intimacy problem and that Ali will be knocked up in no time.

Rosie visits Tanya in the hospital and she has delivered a boy, Melin. She is ready for her hair and makeup.  Rosie brought a designer dress that can be used while nursing. The photo is taken and the family looks great. Dan continues to work for Tanya and she calls him every three hours.

Great Job Quincy, thanks for the recap!  Lynn~

Housewives News

On Sunday the New York Housewives attended and presented at the TV Land Awards in New York.  The show will air this upcoming Sunday but apparently sparks flew between Jill’s husband Bobby Zarin and Alex’s husband Simon VanKempen.  On Sunday I reported on Simon’s Tweets about Jill’s antics on and off screen, he was really just responding to questions but Jill’s Not Haaaaapy and when Jill’s not happy, my guess is that Bobby’s life is a living hell.  Not wanting to be alone in hell, Bobby went to the source of Jill’s grief, no not Jill herself, Bobby confronted Simon VanKempen.  When asked if Jill has apologized to Alex for calling her a “F’ing bitch” Simon responded:

@SimonVanKempen:  No but Bobby came up to me to discuss my tweets; what I said which was pretty heated needs to wait for the Reunion

Upcoming previews of The Real Housewives of New York make it pretty obvious that the newly divorced and oh so happy with her life now, Luann deLesseps attacks Alex McCord more than once this season, on at least three occasions we watch Luann rip into Alex in the short preview video.  What happened to Ms. Manners?  What has Alex done to deserve the wrath of Luann?  Remember that Luann fancies herself a model, did some modeling in her younger days and now Alex has a modeling contract….could Luann be jealous?

Alex McCord, Model in a Cocktail Dress:

Luann is a beautiful woman, I won’t argue that point but as soon as she opens her mouth and the rudeness comes out, she becomes ugly.  Then there’s the singing, there isn’t anything less attractive than Luann butchering notes in that recording studio last season, I can’t believe that she continues to sing after hearing herself.

Luann is passive-aggressive, we know this as she’s given us plenty of that most annoying behavior.  Why is she focusing on attacking Alex?  Is it  just jealousy or is she back to defending the horrendous behavior of her on screen best friend Jill Zarin?  We know Luann likes to insert herself into situations that are none of her business.  She went after Alex, Ramona and Bethenny last season when they each had an issue with Jill, none of Luann’s business but she was sure to confront all three of them.   Ms Manners doesn’t take her own advice.

Is this the same dress Alex wore to the wedding in Episode One?

A deleted scene from Episode One of The Real Housewives of New York:


Has Jill had plastic surgery?  One surgeon says, “Yes!”

See Jill Zarin’s Dramatically Younger Look – Style & Beauty – UsMagazine.com http://bit.ly/g7Zj61

Here is a full view of the “look” of Jill in the pink dress at the TVLand Awards, Bobby forget about Simon and buy your wife a mirror, stat!

Too many jokes – Head will explode – Look away from the freak!

Jill Zarin does not care what kind of publicity she gets as long as people are talking about her.  The WWHL poll incident of 2011 continues to generate articles but even better, it is inspiring media to create more polls just to see what the spread really is between Ramona and Jill.  Even as Jill begs on Twitter for her fans (both of them) to vote for her, she can’t beat the likes of Ramona Singer.  You could put a serial killer up against Jill Zarin and she’d still lose by a landslide.  Jill Zarin, the gift that keeps on giving.

DC House husband Rich Amons hasn’t lost his sense of humor:

U go GF!! I should have protested that bogus @ebongeka DC Fav Husband win 😉 ‘Housewife’ pulls an Al Gore – NYPOST.comnyp.st/ex8nMo

Just to make Jill’s head explode….

  1. Bobbi says:

    Love that poll, Lynn!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Me too – how come you aren’t an option Lynn?

    • cusi77 says:

      Love that poll as well! JZ in that pink dress…. size 1? 6? 12? Nothing wrong to be 14… just don’t tell me it is raining….

    • lovemamaearth says:

      Great poll. Let’s have one every week.

      And Jill looks awful in that get up. Fat & something from the 50’s.

  2. Noreen says:

    Jill looks like she is attending a 1953 prom in that pink outfit. Someone pointed out on the last blog how juvenile she looked and she is right (sorry to whomever it was that I don’t know your name). It is kinda creepy.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I was thinking a knockoff Barbie doll….she needs therapy.

    • firepainter says:

      She’s trying to look innocent.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:


      Am I the tackiest woman in the United States of America? I’m beginning to think so because I like what Jill is wearing. I also LOVE her shoes.

      The dress is not really flattering on her- it makes her torso look like a tree trunk- but I think she looks pretty.

      • Noreen says:

        I agree about the shoes. Frankly, I just think the dress is too youthful for her. And maybe it’s not the dress but the look on her face and that stupid pose. Why doesn’t the Countless or Kiki teach her to pose a different way

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        the dress would look better on someone else
        on her it makes her head loook way too small
        someone must have said beetlejuice 3 times LOL

    • HD says:

      Jill looks horrible. She looks like she has on an Easter outfit your mom used to dress you up in. Who does solid color head to toe like that? And what is that ring?

    • TLM says:

      Terrible dress and accessories. Bad hair. Obvious plastic surgery.

      • Sammysmom says:

        If she had plastic surgery, she let Ramona and Alex do it. She used to at least be okay to look at.

    • humbruh says:

      Yenta Barbie is not a good look at all.

    • PJ says:

      Jill has horrible, tacky taste from her clothes to her appartment. Jill is proof positive that money can’t buy you class or taste.

    • floridagirl88 says:

      Shoes look good though.

  3. firepainter says:

    Too funny! I’m getting so much enjoyment out of this poll business. Thanks Lynn.

  4. VAgirl says:

    Hello, Lynn and Quincy and all. Thanks for the blog. After reading about Pregnant in Heels, glad I didn’t waste my time watching. Won’t take the time to talk about Jill either because, like you said, she just wants people to be talking about her, good or bad. Can’t wait to see what Alex does that is go egregious that Luann has to slam her repeatedly. It doesn’t take much to make Luann’s claws come out. Just look at her funny and that would be enough for her to take offense.

    • VAgirl says:

      Or maybe she keeps reading that she doesn’t add anything to the HW show and she’s just amping up the drama. Who knows?

    • kbinldo says:

      I just bet it’s because Alex wore white shoes after Labor Day.

    • error404 says:

      Like most HWs, Lulu has a compulsive need for attention. Even Ramona walks away from things, and when you have a greater need than Ramona to make a scene and be noticed, red flags should go up. LOL Lulu is often “the forgotten housewife” and actually has few conflicts of her own, but is a master of inserting herself into an existing conversation is a desperate bid to be noticed. So, of course she throws her ore into Jill’s latest conflict storyline. Having her own conflict with Sonja or Cindy would require original thought, and Lulu isn’t exactly the brightest bulb in the Bravo marquee. Take away the fake title, and she is sooooo fired.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Being Jill’s pitbull is not going to make LuAnn any more interesting than she already hasn’t been.

  5. California35 says:

    Maybe someone went to the event as Jill lol. I read a book from A J Jabos, where he said that he went to the Oscars pretending to be Noah Taylor. Back with Shine was nominated. That would be funny, someone going for to make sure she doesn’t annoy anyone.

  6. Melinda says:

    OMG, first off, Jill looks HORRENDOUS!! seriously……..if THAT is after plastic surgery I would want my time and money back!! She looked better before!

    second………..SHAME SHAME SHAME on LuAnn for her awful behavior towards Alex. Personally I think it is jealousy AND the obvious “look-at- me -Jill- I- am- being- a- good- friend- by- attacking- someone- you- don’t- like” behavior we see in the emotionally immature aka HIGH SCHOOL crap!!

    It doesn’t matter if Alex is “model material” or not……..she has been HIRED as one….(i personally think she is beautiful) but LuAnn needs to step off her high horse and stop acting like the pathetic second fiddle to Jill.

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      I agree Alex IS Beautiful
      LuLu is just Jillous

    • I think LuAnn spent so many years resting on her laurels of being a countess that she has no clue what to be when she grows up. So we see her writing a silly book that she doesn’t even practice in her own life, and wanting to be a singer like a little girl wanting to be a ballet dancer. She doesn’t have the smarts to live in the real world, so she slams Alex and Bethenny, the two women (along with Ramona) who have the brains to make it in the real world._

  7. If you had it like this says:

    What is it with Jill and these Halloween costumes this year?? She must have a new stylist… who needs to be fired. Although, I am enjoying the hell outta these get ups so maybe she needs to keep styling her!

  8. WindyCityWondering says:

    Thanks Quincy for your recap. Pregnant in Heels seems to have a very limited audience. It makes me cringe to watch the self absorbed musings of Manhattan’s breeders. I flash back to Bethenny taking her mommy prep class and while B likely got some useful things out of it, she just didn’t seemed that impressed by Rosie’s business model.

    Burning question: Why would Bobby approach Simon about his tweeting when it was his wife who said the nasty thing didn’t own it or apologize for it when it was brought up on WWHL? Does it matter if she said it to Alex’s face, a producer, the hags she was hanging with at the wedding? She said it! So why is Bobby getting involved?

    • VAgirl says:

      If he doesn’t get involved Jill will make his life more of a living hell than normal. I personally think he’s just doing it to pacify Jill, not that he doesn’t think Jill deserves it.

    • error404 says:

      because Bawby is a meddler, an enabler, and probably always stuck his nose in where it didn’t belong, only it’s just coming out now from the increasingly fed-up cast.

      • chismosa says:

        I agree Error (along with most everything you write here) – everyone always thinks Bawby was so nice, so sweet, and Jill toots his horn all the time to others by saying “well you know Bobby, never a mean word about anyone” – but we see the truth there. Sad, very very sad. Wonder what her ex must be thinking of all this, or her former in-laws. What an embarrassment ! (not to mention her immediate family of course, but then again, her parents created her, we see her mom is totally like her)

        • Nancy says:

          And they wonder why that book didn’t sell. Are they really that dense?
          Jill has Bobby dying his hair and beard now.
          Also his clothes are more “hip”. She so wants to be looked at as another Bethenny & Jason.
          Give up Jill it’s NEVER going to happen.

          • SusieQ says:

            Don’t forget Bobby is 16 years older than Jill and probably takes on that father protector role. She’s always turning to Bobby for advice, comfort and validation. He seems to be the one who always justifies her bad and rude behavior in a way that takes the blame off her, treating her almost like a child that didn’t know any better. Remember Scary Island when she surprised Ramona, she ran into his arms and said “They were so mean to me”. He was the one that saved her day by saying it would be okay and there was a plane waiting for them because he had made some calls. He plays savior and protector for Jill. That same scene B apologized for putting Bobby in the middle of her argument with Jill and him having to take sides. He told B he wouldn’t be in the middle of it because he clearly stands by his wife!!

          • TLM says:

            Nothing against Bobby, but no one is ever going to mistake him for Jason, dark hair or not.

    • quincyil says:

      Jill said in a tweet that Simon should ask Bobby about real estate because Bobby is a genius. Jill was upset that Simon was answering questions about Jill and the house she pretended to own for two seasons in RHNYC.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Bobby knows Jill and how much RHNY means to her – he also knows she is not well liked so he may be trying to do damage control for her – you know that man to man kind that never works!

        • quincyil says:

          Jill made the statement that her family wanted her to go back to show that the person Bravo made her out to be is not the real Jill.

          I think Bobby promised to protect Jill and his talking to Simon is part of keeping everyone in their place.

          • error404 says:

            that is one of Jill’s most bold faced lies! If Shed media wanted to edit her to look like a bitch, she is powerless to stop them, as ep1 of s4 proved. Although I do find them all incredibly stupid and self-involved, I highly doubt any of them said anything even remotely more supportive than “Well, if it’s what you really feel you have to do…. I’ll be here for you”.

      • Nancy says:

        All of a sudden Jill doesn’t know everything about everything.
        Funny how that works. I wonder if she knows that s4 isn’t going to be a walk in the park for her?

  9. kbinldo says:

    Still not over the temper tantrum over the poll results & hiring a lawyer. W.T.F. Really?

  10. chismosa says:

    I hope Simon holds his ground and does not flip flop and cater to Jill’s lies and visciousness just to secure his and Alex’s being on the show. The way things are going, i hope NY (and maybe all Housewives) ends rather quickly.

    Jill’s dress, a) pink is awful on redheads, b) her dress is totally from a Sweet 16/ Quinceanera/ bat mitzvah shop.

    As for Luann, i personally find her to be attractive, but not gorgeous. There is something very masculine about her facial features or facial structure, i can’t put my finger on it. Add that to her height, and it’s not great. I personally think that she is more up Sonja’s ass this season so far as opposed to Jill’s. Remember, Jill doesn’t really have lulu anymore bc she found herself a man. I don’t know about that. That is why Jill is ‘such a good friend’ to Kiki, who by the looks of the previews, is really going to have her mental state thrown into question again this season. Again, why choose to be on this show again? Her handlers are not taking care of her that well.

    As for my previous link/ comments on the last blog about Bethenny’s implants, i think she should be as open as she is about everything else in her life and body issues and say that yes, she has implants and not pull a Jill and just say ‘lift.’ We’re not dumb Bethenny, we adore you BECAUSE of your brash honesty! I just think she should be as honest and open about everything as she is about all we’ve seen on her show. She opens up about EVERYTHING, so why not this?

    • error404 says:

      it has always been their conflict with the others that get them noticed and the Jill fight from last season gained them mad fans. The only thing they have to gain from a truce, is when it breaks and Jill attacks them again they will get even more popular. If the goal is to stay on the show, then fighting with the Zarins will better serve them in that purpose IMO.

  11. chismosa says:

    What ethnicity is Tanya from PIH? The husband is Indian I presume? Is she? She is so beautiful with her light eyes, i wasn’t sure if she was Dominican or West Indian, or Indian like her husband. The name Tanya is definitely not Indian for sure.

  12. AZ Girl says:

    Alex looks so much better than Jill at the TVLand awards. Alex looks really classy. Simon looks good too. No goofy outfit.
    Jill needs a new stylist. She needs her bangs back. The color of the dress is just wrong for Jill’s hair color and skin tone. Obviously, Jill did put on weight during the cruise she took with the family and she needs to get back into the gym. She looks puffy. Any news on what show Jill is filming tomorrow?

    • Nancy says:

      Look at Jill’s head compared to her body. Then do the same with Bethenny.

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      Alex is often refered to as the best dressed of all the housewives for good reason
      she has pretty good fashion foward sense
      some of the outfits are not MY taste but they still look good on here

  13. HD says:

    I honestly don’t think Luann is jealous of Alex. I have no idea why they get into it this week or why Luann feels its her duty to correct everyone. The Herman Munster shoes line kills me! I think that is sooooooooooooooooo funny! Luann in her Countess sophistication says, “Well darlingggggggggggg even Louis Vuitton makes mistakes.” Hilarious!!! Now I am dying to see Alex’s shoes!

    • TLM says:

      Alex prides herself because of labels, and even though I don’t personally like Luann, I agree with her statement that “Even LV can make a mistake.” Mind you, I haven’t always liked Luann’s fashion choices either (the bright green sequined top comes to mind). Wearing Vuitton or any other label, for that matter, doesn’t mean you have taste. Great designers can make hideous things, or things that aren’t right for everyone – or for anyone. Most of the time I think Alex’s choices are really bad, which is a shame because if you’re tall and thin, it isn’t hard to find clothes that flatter you. I don’t feel that either she or her husband have good taste in clothing, and I was kind of horrified by their makeover of their living room, dining room and kids’ rooms, which they showed on their website. I thought it was as bad as Jill’s redecorating.

      It has been really cool to watch Bethenny’s style from the first season, where I thought many things she wore weren’t so great, to now, where she has a much more sophisticated sense of style and really seems to know how to put things together. I’ve also liked the changes to her hair and makeup.

      • VAgirl says:

        I agree I’m not always onboard swith Silex’s fashion sense, and not too fond of their decorating style either. Haven’t seen Luann in the one-shouldered dresses lately either, thank God. They ALL have hits and misses so I don’t like to go there unless it’s totally over the top like Jill’s outfit on WWHL. Now that deserved a Slam.

        • Jezzibel says:

          Jills outfit from WWHL deserved to be blindfolded, lined up against a blank wall, and shot, for its indecency against fashion.

    • Noreen says:

      I agree. I don’t think it is jealously. I think LuMann, Kelly and Shrill see themselves as socially higher than Alex and do the mean girl treatment on her. Bethenny distracted them from it last year, but it was evident during the reunion when they all laughed at her and told her to pull her dress down, the spread eagle pictures, etc. They are the worst kind of woman. And the Kelly goes on about women supporting each other. Hypocrisy. Wait for that word to appear in Kelly’s next twitter.

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      isnt it Jean Paul Gaultier
      most likely your right but for some reason i thought alex said Jean Paul Gaultier
      in any case considering Luanne dresses like a stand in for Carol Burnett when she had her great varietyshow she should be the last to comment
      those gowns with the one shoulder are so dated

  14. LynnNChicago says:


    I’m addicted to these “who wore it best” polls…US has a whole bunch here starting with Sonja and Alex (you can view more by clicking on the little photo top right next to the main photo)

    Sonja is winning this one but I had to vote for Alex, I just cringe when Sonja does those Hollywood poses.

    • chismosa says:

      i think Sonja’s fit is better tailored for her and i cannot take those boots Alex wears, but i voted for Alex because Sonja’s pose is getting old

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Truly not digging the boots either, but Alex looks better from the knees up – Sonja’s pose is almost as annoying as Teresa’s head tilt!

        • chismosa says:

          omg HATE the head tilt! it’s like she can’t hold her head straight when she sees a camera!

          • TLM says:

            Come on, Kelly’s ever-present scoliosis pose trumps them all. LOL.

            • Nancy says:

              LuAnn has the “Show Girl” pose down.
              Too funny! I bet she has been knocking down the door at “Dancing with the Stars”

            • AZ Girl says:

              Yes. Everytime I see Kelly posing I think that the picture should be made into a poster for chiropractors to hang in their offices with the tag line “If this is you..we can help you”

    • Cusi77 says:

      Hello Lynn! I voted for Alex as well… but secretly I like Sonja better.. at least the dress fit her nice until below the hips… the length? NOT! Bad, bad.

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      i love sonja but i thought it looked better on Alex it was too short for sonja height

      of course the poll said Sonja LOL

    • lovemamaearth says:

      Thanks for that site. I voted for Alex too. I’m sad that Sonja got bit by the bitch bug and that she went for the duck lips. Yuck.

  15. chismosa says:

    i just watched on that link above of Alex and Simon- their house looks fabulous, the master bedroom at least. Love the built-ins. I think that little snippet kind of puts into perspective Alex’s actions on episode 1 if you ask me. They should have put like 10 seconds of that into it.

    I watched the clip of Cindy talking to her brother Howie- i cannot take Cindy’s accent (and i’m from NY but i can’t figure her accent out) – she calls Ramona ‘Ramoner’ What is up with her and her brother’s mouth/ jaws. It’s annoying me more than Rosie Pope’s lisp!?! sorry just had to rant

  16. Kukulet says:

    I don’t think Jill’s dress itself is that bad-too candy floss for me, but on a young woman, it would look very nice – but she’s far too old for both the color and the style.

    C’mon, Jill. Quit trying to dress half and again your age. It’s not working.

    I don’t think she’s had surgery, just a huge amount of Botox and those Tammy Faye fake eyelashes. Whatever. When will these women learn that a boatload of Botox doesn’t make them look younger? It just makes them look like they’ve had a boatload of Botox. Everything in moderation is a good rule-especially botulism injections.

    • Jezzibel says:

      at least she hasn’t gone in for the whole trout-pout/ducklips look

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Maybe this is how Bobby likes to see her – retro Barbie, naughty Madonna….she needs to do something because her expiration date must be close at hand or he is having a midlife crisis she is trying to deal with…..

    • Nancy says:

      I am 100% sure Jill’s had her nose down. It is thinner and it a flat. You would really see it on profile. She needs to get her money back because it’s terrible. She has also whitened her teeth. I question a lower Bluff (eyes). She has gained her weight back as well. I wonder how often she sees her sister Lisa & her mom these day’s. I’d love to hear some of those conversations. If I were Lisa…

    That dress makes Jill look fat.

  18. quincyil says:

    When we pose for the IHJZ group NO 8 photo, I am going to make hair look like Veronica Lake and I will wear a pink Greek toga with spangles.


    What will you look like in the group photo?

    • Jezzibel says:

      a cowboy hat,flip flops and a set of those rubber gloves you wear to do the dishes…in purple and not much else.

    • Cusi77 says:

      I would wear Ann’s Hataway (? last name) Dress. It is gorgeous!

      • NJ Bev says:

        I’d wear my standard uniform of Jeans and a T-shirt.
        and a s–t eating grin. What’s another way of saying
        sh-t eating grin without saying sh-t? i just sat here for
        5 min trying to re-phrase that and came up blank.
        so i went with my initial thought.
        don’t mean to offend.

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        Anne Hathaway is almost always dressed by Rachel Zoe

        which dress ???

    • FlowerPower says:

      I’m going to wait to see what Bethenny was wearing that week and then dress just like her.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Thinking of asking Jill to help me with a fashion risk Madonna look…..

      • quincyil says:

        or.. a 1960s roller derby teach costume like Jill wore to WWHL last Thurs.

        • quincyil says:

          team costume… it’s like my fingers have a mind of their own these days.

          • quincyil says:

            I hope Harvey will come. He is so reclusive. I know he will have his pocket watch, but I think he will dress for the occasion. Perhaps, a black top hat and a kilt with sparkels.

            Maybe, Simon van Kempen could help style some of us. I bet he will loan us stuff from his closet.

    • humbruh says:

      Toe socks & a mumu in honor or ROH & Sweeetbea

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        i once dressed as a pregnant nun LOL would that do
        of course i was doing a very short lived time as a drag queen and donned this look to belt out Shirlley Basse’s
        “Nobody does it like me ”

        im sure if i looked hard enough i could dig up the habbit

        • quincyil says:

          I would like to see photos of this. LOL.

          • DJ Loops Fruit says:

            LOL i wish i had some to share but this was sooooo long ago and no one ever thought to take one to give me
            it was kind of hysterical at the time

    • Lavalady says:

      Q – I will wear one of Jill’s dresses that I plan to purchase from Ebay (kidding) and I demand to be in the front row.

      • Kansas Girl says:

        So long as you don’t wear her shoes.

        • Kotagirl29 says:

          I say we all wear matching t-shirst that say “We love gays, but hate Jill Zarin”. It let’s everyone know where we stand on the hate issue. Why can’t there be a law against bitches like her getting married and procreating?

          • DJ Loops Fruit says:

            Love that t shirt idea not only does it say it all but it implys that Shrill has dipped into the lady pool LOL

      • quincyil says:

        Oh, I would be so cool if we all wore Jill Zarin’s clothes from ebay. LOL.

  19. Jill is upset with Dr. Jen Walden. She is the doctor who is quoted in the Popeater article about Jill’s new look.

    Tweet from Jill:

    Jillzarin: @drjenwalden you should know better than to comment without meeting someone in person. Seriously? Call my Dr. Dr. Pat Wexler for truth.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      It seems that Jill wants instant verification for her statements and is now throwing out peoples’ names with wild abandon. She tried to get Ramona to verify no work done on WWHL and then low and behold, Kelly tweets up with “FACT” – as if anyone would believe the village idiot. If Jill would cop to work done, things said – she may get another fan or two or not!

      • Kukulet says:

        The really dumb part is a) Dr. Wexler is a dermatologist, not a plastic surgeon, and b) even if this Dr. Walden called Dr. Wexler, confidentiality laws prohibit Dr. Wexler from revealing anything about a patient.

        Jill knows this. Her ridiculous tweets are just another of her attempts to con her followers into thinking she’s legitimate.

        • Jezzibel says:

          while I dislike JZ very much….I don’t think she needed any work done in the first place….she was decent looking before, if its not broke, why fix it. Her personality and attitude could do with a major overhaul though.

        • Maite says:

          I disagree I think everybody should call her doctor and sue him LOL her face looks like she’s been listening to a marathon session of Luann’s music LOL!!!

  20. quincyil says:

    Team Jill people are stopping by and affecting Lynn’s poll. It’s wonderful to have diversity of thought.

  21. @tweatcyn says:

    I actually think PIH is interesting. the poop quiz was gross but I learned something. I think Rosie has really found a perfect niche to fill in the pregnancy field. Lot’s of women would love this kind of esoteric help and guidance that nobody has really filled before. there are books, and medical professionals. her services are very unique and she’s well suited to providing them with class and humor. I like Rosie. Her assistant’s hair drives me nuts. Get it out of your face dude.

    • quincyil says:

      I like the show and think it’s is different. In the end, they make the moms look good.

      The formula isn’t that different from Tabatha’s Salon Takeover.

    • humbruh says:

      His hair is a hot mess!

    • Kotagirl29 says:

      Wasn’t Rosie the chick that Bethenny went to see with her gay buddy last season? They looked at clothes and talked about nipples and the line down her stomach. I’m pretty sure it was her, but not 100% sure. It would make sense that she was since she now has a show on the same network. Sorry I’m thinking this out as I type it.

  22. Jane says:

    I just cant watch Rosie Pope for very long – I will admit upfront that it is probably not very politically correct to say – but I cannot stand her speach impediment!! She sounds like she is talking through a mouthful of marbles….one would think that if they were going to build a series around someone’s business like this they would have found a host that could speak…

    • quincyil says:

      It doesn’t bother me at all.

        Has anyone heard if she is hearing impaired? A neighbor of mine is and speaks similarly. It does not bother me either.

    • TLM says:

      I watched for maybe 10 minutes this morning and I guess it was a combo of boredom and frustration that made me quit watching.

      What always gets me is how Bravo will put subtitles on things I find perfectly understandable, and other things I could play 50 times and still can’t understand, there’s no subtitles on. I really felt I needed subtitles for 99% of what Rosie Pope says.

      • @tweatcyn says:

        I can understand her just fine. Maybe I’m a lip reader and don’t even know it.

        • Nancy says:

          To me Kelly talks like she is talking to a deaf person.
          When you over use your lip’s to form words.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      It seems as though they found her and thought she was interesting, unique and successful and so they built the show around her.

      The voice doesn’t bother me at all in fact I didn’t notice it until I read people talking about it on line.

      • TLM says:

        People went INSANE on Twitter over Rosie’s voice in the premiere. I couldn’t believe it. Many people find it a distraction, and it seemed they couldn’t overcome it.

    Some more info on “Dee plane! Dee plane!” and some random other news on B.

    Yesterday we were having a discussion about the origin of Bethenny’s private plane. On her Bravo blog she says, “As for the private plane, it is quite a luxury and I can’t even believe I could afford to do that for us. Jason really appreciated it and got used to the lavish lifestyle quick. It’s hard to believe I was broke a few years back. By the way, are any of you members of the Mile High Club?”

    It still doesn’t sound like she owned the plane, or was even using it regularly. I recall her tweeting about other strangers or random people sitting on planes around her the last few months, which would mean she was taking commercial flights. It seems odd that you would use a private plane once in a blue moon if you owned it. I think this one was just chartered for the show, and David Kanbar had the logos put on. I have to also believe Bravo was kicking in something for the flight, since it was a major part of the episode.

    Putting a logo on a car, bus or plane is done via a shrinkwrap method, and they are also removed fairly easily. You can see a gallery of photos here: http://www.autowrapped.com/photo%20gallery.htm
    I can’t find it now, but I thought one of Bethenny’s exes was very successful in that business, doing shrinkwrapping for cars. (I had thought it was Peter Sussman, but evidently he is a film executive, so maybe it was a different ex). If anyone else read about the shrinkwrap guy and can confirm or deny, please do! After I had read that story way back when, I was always wondering if her ex had done the Skinnygirl car, and then the bus, and now the plane. In the same article she had been quoted as saying she was on good terms with all of her exes.

    Just saw this article out today re: her boob job. She says she had implants but they were taken out in 2008. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/04/13/bethenny-frankel-opens-up_n_848327.html

    B has what looks like the coveted Hermes Birkin bags in at least 4 colors that I’ve noticed: tan, grey, white and blue. These each start at $9000 or so. They’ve never been named in the Show & Tell for the shows, which leaves me wondering if they are really Hermes or knockoffs. If they’re knockoffs, I would love to know where I can get one. If they aren’t knockoffs, are they more free or low-cost swag? Dying to know.

    • @tweatcyn says:

      I noticed the Birken bags too. Love them, esp. the tan one. She has millions now so she could afford a few luxury items.

      • humbruh says:

        I loved the red one she was carrying in the last episode.

        • Kansas Girl says:

          Me too. Loved the red one. I was astounded that she switched bags while in Montreal, meaning she packed one in her luggage. I would never think to do that, as I’m too stingy with luggage space.

          • TLM says:

            The red one is actually NOT a Birkin but a Prada. I have a close-up photo of it. Expensive, but way cheaper than a Birkin. That’s why I was wondering whether the others were something other than Hermes.

            Yes, she has millions now, but I don’t see her spending $36,000+ on handbags. She says the millions went into the bank, and she still for the most part spends as though she doesn’t have much money. Her very expensive watches were gifts from exes. I have to wonder if any of her bags were gifts from exes or if they are on loan through her stylist.

            I did notice she had more than one bag on the Canada trip also. I know she always talks about packing light, so this was a puzzle to me too. I never knew how she had so many different clothes and hats on the St John trip in a little carry-on bag. Size 0-2 clothing doesn’t take up a lot of space, but still.

            • Kotagirl29 says:

              They didn’t show any of the luggage for the ladies except their carry-ons because someone said they had to refilm the arrival scene. They didn’t show them taking stuff from the dingy to the house either, but Bethenny had the monogrammed bags for all and I’m pretty sure they were hidden in her bra. As for the multiple bags in Canada. Well she might have purchased one there. Montreal has a lot of nice boutiques. They were there for a couple days and didn’t film EVERY second.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      All of the cast member of these shows are allowed to borrow – no they are encouraged to borrow clothing, shoes and accessories from many different designers. That way it’s a win win as the designers get their stuff onto National Television and the cast get to wear all different clothing without having to invest all of their earnings into a wardrobe that they will never wear again. THAT is one of the reasons I’m surprised that we’re seeing the same outfits on the housewives at more than one event.

      As far as Bethenny’s handbags, I’d bet they’re borrowed.

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      psst I saw knockoffs in every color and hardware for $300. But I would feel silly shopping at Walmart with a Birkin. I’ll do PhooeyLouie (LV) there but Birkin… I wouldn’t dare! 🙂

    • lovemamaearth says:

      I’m not buying the claim that she doesn’t have implants. I love B but her boobs look fake to me & she does seem proud that it’s the first thing that the guys would notice. On the other hand it’s none of our business really so saying nothing would have been better than fibbing. JMHO

  25. TLM says:

    Hallelujah… Bravo finally fixed their coding, or whatever it was that was taking the audio out of watching the channel on live tv via Comcast and Windows Media Center. They were the only channel this happened to, and pretty much the only channel I watch on my computer, so this had really sucked. The sound has been off for over a month or so, and I used to put my tv in the living room on to get the audio, but they never really synced up since WMC has a delay of a few seconds from the main cable feed. I was going to contact Bravo but figured it was futile and they would eventually get the word. I wouldn’t even know who to contact at Bravo to fix a problem like that. Just glad that the message finally got through.

  26. viki55 says:

    Just noticed the tab for this page on my computer is cut off and reads “I hate Jill Zarin Pregnant”. Shocked myself for a second there!

  27. quincyil says:

    Team Jill is pulling out of the basement. LOL

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Are they going to run those polls until Jill wins?

      • quincyil says:

        Lynn’s blog poll. Lynn decided to do it so Jill would implode.

        I was taking a tea break and googled Jill Zarin. There is not one complementary article there. Most of them mention her misdeeds in episode one and past seasons. I really don’t think that Bobby has the power and money to save her.

  28. quincyil says:

    I don’t think Jill Zarin had surgery. She probably had some treatments to tighter her skin right before the show. At midnight, her faced dropped back into its normal position.

  29. @tweatcyn says:

    Chimosa, yesterday you inquired where the scene is that shows Bethenny’s diamond birthday earrings. I saw it on Bethenny.com. Bravo deleted the scene. You can watch it here. Good close-ups:


  30. LuAnn is doing a live Ustream chat at 5:00 PM. I am going to skip it because LuAnn bores me to death. She is not as “entertaining” as Jill is. LOL

    CountessLuAnn : Help me spread the word! I am taking questions on Ustream today at 5pm EST! Hope to see you!

  31. WindyCityWondering says:

    So is Bethenny’s net worth higher than Jill’s (I guess I should say Bobby’s) net worth now? It seems the more success Bethenny achieves the more Jill wants to say they were pretend tv friends.

    • Dani says:

      WCW, I would love to know what Bethenny’s net worth is now. Can you imagine 4 years ago not being able to pay your rent and now you have millions? I looked for information on the sale of Skinnygirl Margaritas to Jim Beam, but really couldn’t find any information other than she will continue to be the spokesperson. I even had my husband search and he couldn’t find the amount she sold it for.

  32. Bravo has just announced their summer line-up. RHONJ will premiere on May 16 at 9:00 PM. They also announce the premiere dates of some of their new shows.

        funny now to watch her do the radio broadcast on TV.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      I am no where near prepared for New Jersey at this point…Bravo is pushing it LOL

    • TLM says:

      Oh, what in the effing hell was that. The RHONJ go to Leather bars, dominatrix dungeons and Favelas this season?

      I guess Bravo has graduated from showing animal poop on every show to now showing slaughtered and/or bloody animals. It started with the slaughtered pig in Miami, and now I guess we get to see women walking through blood in the streets in high heels. What kind of degenerates are storyboarding this crap?

      Looks like all the BS Teresa tried to tell people a year ago about not having issues with her sister in law was just that…BS. But do we really care about their dysfunction enough to watch? And Ashley is still a spoiled idiot who needs to be smacked upside the head. What else is new?

      Maybe I’m dense, but I had no idea what those bumpers with “Platinum Hit” were about. I didn’t even get that it was promoting a tv show. I thought it was maybe a new game for Nintendo or X-Box. Epic fail for Bravo. And whichever one it is. I’m not interested anyway.

  34. DJ Loops Fruit says:

    has the whole frigging world gone nuts
    I blame Bravo LOL

    • LynnNChicago says:


    • kbinldo says:

      The answer is “Yes.”

      The question is “Are people really that stupid?”

      • lovemamaearth says:

        Factcheck.org has a list under their header of:
        If Donald Trump worked for us, we’d have to say: “Donald, you’re fired — for incompetence.” The successful developer and TV celebrity says he’d make a good president, and maybe he would — we take no stand either way about that. But when it comes to getting facts straight, he fouls up again and again on the basics of President Barack Obama’s birth. As a rookie reporter, he just wouldn’t make it.

  35. DJ Loops Fruit says:

    Sorry to any republicans that may be here but do they have at least one sane person that could run

    • viki55 says:

      I am more of a conservative than a Republican but I would very much like to see someone like Colonel Allen West run. Character is everything and he is a man who loves his country. Trump is just playing at the moment, getting his ratings up. And yes, the whole frigging world has gone nuts!

    • VAgirl says:

      If the Trump is serious about it, I think HE THINKS has enough money to buy the Presidency, and we all know if you don’t have the money behind you, you are not going to win. And you know what, there are people out there gullible or stupid enough to vote for him. JMHO

      • VAgirl says:

        Sorry, didn’t mean to insult anyone who thinks he would make a good president.

        • viki55 says:

          No Problem. And there certainly are a lot of gullible and stupid people who vote based on a well funded campaign and the image of a man the media creates. Hopefully they have learned something and won’t make that mistake again. There isn’t much time left to wise up. I pray to God for the fate of our nation.

        The thing that scares me about all of it ,is that Trump is 3rd to be considered

        does that mean that the others out there are that bad
        and then there is this guy i cant recall his last name but i think his first name is Ryan (with my luck that WILL be his last name) he wants to do all these changes to medicare and social sec as part of a budget
        but what it seems like really is he is gonna screw it all up for seniors and do away with soc sec AND medicare and force seniors to get private insurance
        oh yeah that will work cause we all know the insurance companys are gonna wanna take on seniors
        i see dark days ahead
        oh and you all know the republicans that run and even some of the dems are all gonna jump on gay marriage as a smoke screen i mean issue

  36. Nancy says:

    I think one of the best things about Lynn’s blogg is this…
    I’m sure at the very beginning when this blog was born Jill thought that she would just have to grin & bare it for a day after RHONY showed but NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    It would be every day. It doesn’t matter what show Lynn had blogged about it would quickly turn into a “I hate Jill Zarin” one. Why doesn’t Jill get “If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, it’s probably is a duck”?

    • 2Stupid says:

      Ok, OT, but I am laughing so hard right now. There is a wholesaler in here schmoozing and he just told me about his wedding. He asks me have you ever seen RHNJ? I am thinking, of course I have buddy, I am a Bravo addict, but acted demurely. Then he said he was getting married at the Brownstone! I wanted to say thell Carolyn hello, but just nodded like that was nice. I am such a fake at work!!!!!!!

  37. Jill will make her “acting” debut on “White Collar”.

    Reality star Jill Zarin is taking a breather from playing herself: The Real Housewives of New York City star will make her acting debut in an upcoming episode of the USA drama White Collar.

    “I’m playing a woman at a cocktail party,” Jill tells Life & Style exclusively about the episode she tapes on April 14. “I have lines. It’s going to be so exciting. It’s my first acting gig.”

    Jill says she took acting classes in grade school, “but I never pursued it — and never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d be acting one day.

    “It’s a dream come true. Obviously, I won’t be waiting for my name to be announced on Emmy day, but I’m flattered to be working with such an amazing cast. And the fact that they’re all so hot doesn’t hurt. Matt Bomer is yummy!” Jill says of the actor that plays FBI consultant Neal Caffrey on the drama.

    White Collar’s third season premieres on June 7.


    • VAgirl says:

      She’s really going the using her acting chops playing a woman at a cocktail party. That’s really a stretch for her. LOL!

    • error404 says:

      OK… Why in hell did Jill take acting lessons as a child???? Was she suppose to be the next Punky Brewster? Just how many stage Moms are there in this world?! My friggin Mom just told me to do well in school and go to college. I didn’t realize I was abused! LOL

      • VAgirl says:

        I know, error. I didn’t get acting, dancing, singing, piano or any other kind of lessons. AND my mom didn’t sign me up for any baby or toddler beauty pageants or take me around to modeling agencies. WAAAAAAAA!

        • JKW says:

            “In Plain Sight”
            “Burn Notice”
            “Covert Affairs”
            “White Collar”
            “Fairly Legal”
            and even “Royal Pains” has grown on me….USA is also where Law & Order: Criminal Intent is shown now too (well the last season starts May 1, along with the new Season of “In Plain Sight” which is one of my favorites. )

            They actually show the Westminster Kennel Club dog show every year….

      UGH! This makes me sad..and mad! I discovered White Collar in the middle of its first season and just adore the entire show…especially Mozzie lol

      It really is an excellent show, with good acting and excellent storylines and now I feel like its been cheapened….remember Jill telling Bawwwby how she was going to repay him when he bought her some jewelry? I can’t help but think she has said something like “Baaawby, aren’t you just so proud of me for becoming an actress? Maybe I’ll be nice to you if you tell me I should win an award”….something to that affect! UGH!

  38. Dani says:

    Thank you Lynn for the blog. I don’t think I will be watching PIH. Love the pictures of Jill, the dress looks like a 5 year olds and she is going to a birthday party.

    We had a great time last night, and the Skinnygirl Margaritas were a big hit. I think I should have bought two cases instead of one. What I like about the Margarita is that they have Blue Agave instead of sugar. My doctor told me that any type of sugar substitute can cause diabetes or can make your diabetes worse. She said to use Blue Agave as a substitute for sugar. I am not a spokesperson for Skinnygirl Margaritas lol. I can drink them and I don’t have to worry about my blood sugar going crazy. I hope that you are all having a great day today. Our weather is beautiful here in Phoenix. We need to enjoy the great weather now as right around the corner it will be in the 100’s.

    • error404 says:

      LOL! Jill’s dress does achieve that rare feat of being both toddler and grandma all at the same time. When I first saw it all I could think of was a Simplicity pattern from 1966: you just know some recent retiree wore that same dress her Mother sewed for her to a father-daughter CYO dance back in the day.

        Maybe she’s being styled by Rachel Berry!

      I like the way she sounds too. The combination of the English accent and the lisp cute, which works for her business. I’m thinking if you have to boss around a bitchy pregnant woman you need to sound “cute” to do it without getting killed.

  41. chismosa says:

    thanks to @tweatcyn for the link to Bethenny and the earrings things. I will watch now.

    to TLM- the Huffington Post piece i also linked to re: Bethenny’s implants- i just have a problem with her not being straight about having implants. Don’t hide behind ‘breast lift’ – you share EVERY SINGLE THING about you with us, including allegedly the moment you find out you are pregnant (if that was not re-taped for dramatic effect i mean). So come on! I just don’t like that, if you’re going to be open 99.9% then go all the way.

    Her Birkins are totally totally real; mark my words.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      I dunno- is really anyone’s business? I don’t REALLY need to know lift vs. implants.

      • chismosa says:

        i don’t need to know about 10000000 of the things Bethenny shares with us but she does, enjoys doing it, and claims to be doing so so I’m just calling her out on it. Don’t get me wrong, adore her to pieces.

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          I know- and it’s ok even if you don’t adore her. I dunno- there has to be somethings that she keeps private-no?

          • dsc60 says:

            am i missing something? she said she had them but then had them removed. is there a piece somewhere saying she’s lying and she actually does have implants? it is possible that those ARE her boobs.

            • error404 says:

              people are splitting hairs, for what reason I’m lost. She openly admits to having had work done, but people are obsessing over the exact nature of the cosmetic surgery. pfft… saying you had your car waxed when you really just had it washed isn’t exactly the Watergate scandal. LOL

                  when Beth was in tub
                  with Bryn her breasts
                  IMHO were much
                  smaller(and nicer)
                  than before. I think
                  she removed the
                  implants and did not
                  replace them. her
                  breasts fit her body.

    • TLM says:

      Chimosa, I agree. The boob job thing has bothered me in the same way it would bug me if it does turn out that Oprah is gay and never was candid about it all these years. (I have a friend who has been insisting she is since 2004, and still tells me I’m going to feel stupid when the truth comes out. LOL). Both Bethenny & Oprah have built their brands on the notion that their lives and dysfunction are an open book, and it has just bugged me with Bethenny that she couldn’t come clean about it because the implants so obviously looked like, well, implants.

      Andy C. first raised the issue with her over the still photo of her in her green bikini at Jill’s then-Hamptons pool, where the whole side of her breast was oddly puckered. She sat there and said she only had a “lift,” not that she had a bad implant job corrected and the original implants removed. It was staring everyone in the face! How can you sit there and tell people they’re not seeing what they know they’re seeing?

      Look, I know everyone deserves privacy, but if that’s the case, then don’t wear a revealing bikini, wear a one-piece that covers you until the problem is fixed. And don’t pee in your bathroom or in a bucket on camera! It just doesn’t make sense how open she is about some things but not others that seem mild in comparison.

      • BlueSky_Forever says:

        Oprah is gay. She is attracted to women more than men. She uses her “fiance” as a cover. Read Kitty Kelly’s biography. Oprah tried to stop the book, but all of Kitty’s sources were real so Oprah couldn’t stop the book. I don’t want to tell you how I know this, but Oprah’s advances were rejected by a woman that I believe her story (she is a friend of someone in my family).

  42. okeydoekey says:

    –Kim Z. Tweeted today was the first day of filming for RHOA. So we’ll see her baby shower and give birth and move, Apollo recover from being held by the cops for mistaken identity and Nene deal with the publics reaction to her poor behavior on Celeb. App.

    One questions:
    I don’t follow Nene on tweeter but check in on it at times. Has she tweeted her friend Diana lately? Or has she fallen out with her?

    Also I can’t stand Trump. He recently did a CNN interview and continuously cut off the female interviewer. I hate a disrespectful man.. Many who say they will vote for him are just afraid of him. He is a bully like Jill.

  43. Dani says:

    Has anyone watched the video of BEA ‘s Thanksgiving episode on Bravo? The funniest part is when Cookie hides under the bed.

  44. quincyil says:

    OK, I don’t believe Alex. I watched a video link from Simon’s twitter. They are on a bed discussing the problem with Jill Zarin. Alex said that the issue is that Jill Zarin says things about their kids. Apparently, Jill Zarin called their kids animals. I don’t remember the word animals, but Jill had issues with the kids when Alex and Simon were shopping in Zarin Fabrics.

    I might not like someone who said something like that, but it would not make me afraid of them at a party. Simon says that Alex doesn’t have control over who he is going to be friends with and Alex agrees. So we are going into episode two with a preview that Simon is ok with being friends with Jill Zarin.

    Knowing what I know about the things Jill Zarin has done to Alex and Simon, a comment on the kids just doesn’t seem like the whole reason that Alex has issues with Jill. I think it’s important to be honest as Bethenny is honest. If you try to fake something, Bravo will show you to be a liar.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      Quinc, my darling, I adore you and I agree with everything you said, only one issue with your post…you found that video on Simons Twitter account? I posted that in the blog! My own partner in crime doesn’t even read the blog folks! I’m taking my ball and going home…

    • error404 says:

      I respectfully disagree.

      Re: Bethenny. I sat thru an entire season of RHoNY with absolute no friggin clue on why Jill was so mad at Bethenny. Little miss “I tell it all” didn’t say a word about having her own show, yada, yada, yada to this day the most honest thing she ever said was “It’s never about what it’s about” and hinted like 100x times that it wasn’t even only about BGM?… they both must have said 100x that the feud was about so much more, and Bravo/Shed just dropped it each time.

      Re: Alex. None of them have any responsibility to tell us anything. If she wants to hate Jill because of the color of her shoes, that’s her right. LuLu certainly never is called on any of her endless condescention. But Silex has mentioned numerous times that Jill talks smack about them on a regular basis and some of it gets repeated back to them by mutual aquaintences, so I’m sure it’s just like the B thing: “not about what it’s about”. Love them or hate them, Silex are helicopter parents, and the idea that Alex would go bananas over someone suggesting her “genius” Francois isn’t all that an a packet of crisps seems believable to me as well. And I know I’m alone here, but Ally just screams “average”, so having the Mom of a plain-jane C student criticize your precious little “chums” must sting.

      How many times do we have to see Alex break out in jittery hives to realize the chic just can’t handle confrontation? And how many times do we have to see JIll try and destroy someone who looked at her funny before we label her “fear worthy”?

      • Nancy says:

        I think a lot of it is about when Bethenny was getting “bigger & bigger” re: her branding etc she was being asked to come on The Today Show et al and Jill was pissed that Bethenny wasn’t asking Jill to join her. Jill really believes that she is the reason Bethenny has become so successful. She truly is a narcissist.
        In many ways Jill is as delusional as Kelly.

        • Nancy says:

          Jill would go behind Bethenny’s back and try to get on Bethenny’s coattails. Needless to say Bethenny wasn’t too happy with that. As she should have been. Jill wanted to be thanked on a daily basis for Bethenny’s rise in life.

          • BlueSky_Forever says:

            Jill was getting jealous of Bethenny’s success. It was really creepy when she heard B was going to be on the Today show (or some show) & then she called the producers to intimidate them into asking her to be on with B! Bethenny realized she couldn’t tell Jill anything…and so we saw the tactics Jill used to destroy B.

        • BlueSky_Forever says:

          In fact Jill probably thought she should be on B’s book tour – that’s how ridiculous Jill was. It must have been Jill’s reason to write a book, to “show” B just how successful Jill was, without B. Ughh Jill. You are such a pain in the ass! B must have been secretly enjoying Jill’s humiliation with her craptastic book lol.

      Actually I think Alex may be referring to the comment that Jill made about one of the boys climbing up Simons leg. She said something like he was climbing him like a monkey. She didn’t actually call him an animal so that’s a bit of an exaggeration.

            In Season One, Jill was pushing for a relationship between Bobby and Ally.

      wow that article says $15 million back in June 2010. Since then let’s see….she’s done another book, the Beam deal, Skating with the Stars, & BEA….that’s got to be another $10 to $20 million more right?

      Jill has “all over the map style”. Most people stick with one type of style.

      • error404 says:

        That’s because Jill has no idea who she is. I’ve never met a person that age who said so many contradictory things about themselves. Most people have a discernible identity that is reflected in their dress: classic, punk, posh, hippie, preppy, etc…

  60. chismosa says:

    @ TLM- (i’m replying down here in case you read updates instead of per each reply- not sure if people read that way here or not): thanks for agreeing with me regarding the Bethenny boob stuff. I concur completely! Just to be clear, the shot of B with her boobs really jutting through in the pool, was at J’s summer house airing Season 2, when Gloria & co. ‘took care of her.’ At that time i believe, she still had the large leading-the-room implants. She didn’t reduce and re-lift until later on, i propose, post having Bryn.

    I can’t believe Jill at the awards, you can tell you can JUST TELL when she walks up so cautiously to some reporter- her face just shows the trepidation she must feel that ‘oh my god i hope they don’t ask about Bethenny i hope they don’t call me out on stuff.’ She just looks i don’t know, so cautious. Doesn’t look great, needs bangs back and her eyes need a serious lift and/or injectibles there- she is someone who ‘knows plastic surgery’ – remember her talking to Sonja about the tummy tuck last season? She would know she needs some time set the injectibles if she really did get them in her upper eyes. Yuck!

    • TLM says:

      Her breasts have only just recently started to appear normal to me. She’s claiming she had the implants out in 2008 but I agree with you, it looks as though she had them out much more recently; I just don’t know when she had the time – maybe last summer? It would have been after the baby was born but before they started filming BEA.

  61. chismosa says:

    just wanted to say that i’ve been watching NeNe on Apprentice and i don’t see her as acting ‘horrifically’ or what-have-you. I think she sees things that are going on, under the surface, behind the scenes and she reacts. But she reacts unfortunately not as elegantly as say, Bethenny would. I completely agree with N on the Star issues thusfar and also on Kim in the past season of Atlanta. I know N shouldn’t be up and screaming and shouting in someone’s face but i do overall agree with her grievances after all. I think she is faded out with all her reality show stuff, much like Alex has been and is now this season a newer Alex. Nene just really comes across differently. I love Nene! Support for you girl xo!

      I agree. But there is something else going on with Nene. She just can’t seem to handle the truth! LOL She always starts off every season funny and sane but as things get under her skin, she just sort of breaks down and dissolves into a screeching shrew by season’s end. CA is following this same pattern and I fear it will get much worse as the weeks tick by. She was fine right up until her LaToya attack. LaT is right, Nene uses her size and volume to intimidate. Her reason may not have been wrong, but the reaction was. She just can’t seem to handle stress in any reasonable way, or if it’s an act, I question it’s results. I think she gains fans with her snark, then loses them again once she goes into rage mode.

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        we have to keep in mind that bravo only tapes a couple of weeks out of these ladies lifes and then some of them are stuck with some co stars for months after
        if i had wig up in my face all the time im not so sure i wouldnt become a shrew
        im always gonna love NeNe

        • error404 says:

          most of us wouldn’t spit on wig if she was on fire. refusing to even speak to her now is the smartest thing Nene ever did, despite everyone and their pet pony constantly asking her if they’ve made up. I swear, if one more person asks either Jill or B if they are friends again, I’m going to know a huge outbreak of mental retardation is gripping the country. Only the most pathetic of doormats would let Jill back in their life.

          • Kotagirl29 says:

            Yeah, but some pathetic doormats will align themselves with the “villain” just to get press.

    • TLM says:

      I wonder what’s happened to Kim? She’s been uncharacteristically quiet and invisible since the New Year. Would think she would want to be photographed shopping for baby clothes, decorating her nursery, etc. etc. Could it be that even the tabloids don’t care anymore??

      • quincyil says:

        I think the tabloids care. They need constant input.

        • Kotagirl29 says:

          I don’t think they care as much as say. . .they did about Bethenny. Kim is pregnant by an NFL player. Who cares about her popping a kid out when there is a lockout looming on the horizon. That is much bigger news than some bleach blonde, big ti**ed bimbo knocked up and ready to pop out a players kid. Now if she was claiming this kid was a product of some twisted relationship the tabloids would be ALL OVER IT.

    Spanx issue that was raised above:

    i can tell you the times i saw the spanx under RHNY dresses: Alex after her first party at their completed townhouse- when she was sitting with Simon on the couch deciding to cook on the new appliances the next day.
    Jill on the reunion from i believe reunion of S3. It is too difficult to hide it when you are in nice short dresses and sitting low at camera eye level and then get up. Classic mistake. But Jill inserting the comment about ‘Bawwwwwby i need to make a spanx with lace i gots to! wahh wahh Bawby! hold me!’- this is just her playing up her ridiculously-named new line.

    sidenote: why does Jill have to hold the apple in the middle of the screen this season again in the main shot of the girls? And can Andy please not seat her right next to him at the next reunion please? Move her farther out… deal with her conniption Daaandy (as Elsa would call her), deal with it, tread through it- don’t allow her to bully herself into the middle of everything!

    • quincyil says:

      Ramona had black spax on in the scene where they were looking at dress lines for the Brooklyn fashion show. I don’t know why these thin women need help.

            lol – Fine thank you, and you?

            • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

              I am doing great~got to sit in the sun again yesterday & look at our beautiful lilac bush or more like a tree now. The weeping willow is so big now too. We planted everything from roses to trumpet vines, blackberries, raspberries & a beautiful wild herb garden. For 2 days now there has been a baby bunny nibbling on wild rose leaves 2 ft. from my front door. He or she must be the easter bunny. lol
              Thank you Mary 🙂

              • viki55 says:

                How fun! I love this time of year in the garden. But it is already getting so hot and no rain so it won’t be long before I won’t be able to keep up the watering. Have to enjoy it all now!!

                • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

                  We have had an enormous amout of water & sun this year so everything is lush & green. All the flowers are loving it too. I have more flowers & birds & bunnies this year since I have been letting a lot of it go natural which as you know gardening is hell on arthritis.

              • justanothermary says:

                How great! It’s been warm and sunny here – so all good. I’m lamenting the garden that will not be planted this year. I’m going to be travelling between home and my mother’s place all summer as she is not well. Just no time to garden.

                • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

                  Where are you Mary?
                  I just said above we have more flowers & small wildlife now that I am not able to take care of our garden like I used to. I love it. It’s like a little Island paradise.
                  I am sorry about your
                  mama, Mary.

                  • justanothermary says:

                    I’m in Minnesota – Mom’s in North Dakota. She dying and knows it. It’s been hard, but she’s at peace with everything. I wish I had her faith and strength.

              • error404 says:

                we had a cottontail living in our yard a couple of years ago. I named him Peter and was a getting attached, then he just disappeared one day. I shudder to think about it, nature can be cruel. The dog thinks she’s so hard, but I always have to keep on eye out she doesn’t get carried off by something.

                • VAgirl says:

                  We have bunnies, owls, racoons, possum and foxes. I just got a pup that looks just like a fox, so I told the neighbor to please not mistake him for a fox and accidentally shoot him. LOL!

                  • VAgirl says:

                    Oh, and we have lots and lots of squirrels and moles.

                  • error404 says:

                    it’s the coyote and hawks I have to watch out for. We may have even had a bear once: something mutilated one of our drainpipes and then people posted bear sightings on the village blog.

                    • VAgirl says:

                      I’ve seen a hawk or two, but no cyotes here in eastern VA. We do have a bear sighting every once in a while

                    • Nancy says:

                      Our cat Tiger just got eaten alive by a Coyote.
                      The guilt I feel because I let him go outside that night is ever with me.

                    • Kotagirl29 says:

                      I have four dogs. One is about 25 lbs. I call him the biggest LITTLE a**hole. He’s REALLY brave when the 140 lbs Golden is outside with him, but he’s a wimp when alone. I threaten him all the time that I am going to leave him outside for the hawks. He doesn’t seem to believe me.

                  • error404 says:

                    Mr404 just read that a hawk carried off a fox near by!

                    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

                      we get some bunnies here and possums but the funniest is when i get ducks in my swimming pool
                      i know i should shoo them away but they are just so damned cute

                    • VAgirl says:

  67. DJ Loops Fruit says:

    re: the deleted scene
    I really think that before they watched the first aired episode that Simon sincerley still liked Jill and was trying to get Alex to make up with her
    remember last season when Alex begged him not to go near Shrill at that nightclub and he just went right up to her and sat below her
    love what they did with the bedroom so light and pretty

    • VAgirl says:

      I didn’t even notice the bedroom. I’ll have to go back and look because I didn’t really care for the red and black living room they had. Yes, I think Simon wanted to kiss and make up, but Alex was over Shrill at that point. I think both of them have seen the light now, at least I hope so.

      • quincyil says:

        It is very obvious that Simon held not ill will towards Jill Zarin and Jill said it to the camera. She felt warmth from him. He also said it in the bedroom to Alex.

        I think Alex is not ill tempered. I think she sees a snake in the grass when it comes to Jill Zarin. Women are more intuitive.

        Alex acted strangely at Jill’s party when she walked up to Jill, Ramona and Ramon’s friend and heard Jill Zarin say, “Alex was crying and screaming.” They are at a party and you hear someone say that about you. It was polite that Alex just commented on the march. If Kelly, Jill or the Countess walked up and heard that there would be crying and screaming about that comment.

  68. DJ Loops Fruit says:

    most of the clip takes place in the bed room i think
    the kids are playing with alex on the bed
    kids being kids jumping on the bed stuff like that

    • VAgirl says:

      Oh yes, I do like their bedroom decor better than some other parts of the house. Not so dark. There house was a mess in season 1, but they really pulled it together.

    • quincyil says:

      I am going to blog Simon’s video from bravotv.com on Lynn’s blog. I will watch carefully and if there are links to the show, I will note them.

      I think they started filming at home and realized there was extra footage that was golden. Bravo doesn’t waste money with boring stuff.

      It starts on the 21st. There is a video every two weeks according to Simon on twitter. I noticed other blogs make comments that it was a joke, but I think Bravo isn’t joking with their money.

  69. DJ Loops Fruit says:

    omg i just realized Natalie Cole asked The Countess to sing with her
    Is she on the crack pipe AGAIN ??? LOL

    • error404 says:

      Poor Natalie, she’s been a desperate has-been for years now. So sad. Such a waste of talent.

    • TLM says:


    • lovemamaearth says:

      Does she live in NYC? Maybe she wants to be on RHW and thinks Lu could pull some strings.

    • Kotagirl29 says:

      No not the crack pipe, definitely pot. You get really creative and think some really stupid crap is a good idea. I know. I have written the most AMAZING poems when I was baked, then read them when I wasn’t and almost died laughing. Got to be pot. How else would that hair-brained idea be considered a good one?

  70. VAgirl says:

    OK. I have a question about episode 1 of NYHW. I only watched it once, but in the scene at Ramona’s party when Jill was talking to her friends and Alex walks up, I thought Jill was talking about Ally, not Alex, because I thought one of her friends was also talking about one of her kids. I assumed they were talking about their kids going off the college. I may be wrong about that.

    • Lavalady says:

      IDK VA, I thought the same thing, that they were talking about sending their kids off to school. But the crying and screaming thing didn’t make sense to me. I do not think Ally went off to college crying and screaming.

      • VAgirl says:

        Maybe Jill was the one doing the crying and screaming. LOL

        • Lavalady says:

          Maybe. Also, Jill said something about a garment bag, so maybe it was the type of conversation where there are 3/4 people and more than one conversation going on.

          When Alex walked over, there was an awkward pause, so maybe they were talking about her.

      • Nancy says:

        O I think she was screaming of joy!!

    • Kotagirl29 says:

      I also thought she was talking about Ally. It sounded to me like she said, “Ally was crying and screaming,” and then when Alex walked up one of the other ladies was talking about her kid and camp. I think if it was about Alex Ramona would have interjected. I like to think that Ramona would have said that Alex was not screaming and crying. I think it was edited and made to look like Jill was talking about Alex, or make Alex THINK Jill was talking about her.

      Still laughing out loud!!

      A: A middle aged man using surgery to appear a woman half her age?

    • HD says:

      At this point I think Jill’ face is shocked at her face!

      • quincyil says:

        I just don’t know. They can do a lot with fillers and makeup. Oprah looks so different in movies like “The Color Purple” and “Beloved” than in the TV show with makeup and hair perfectly done.

    • Kotagirl29 says:

      HA! Loved Simon’s comment at the end of the article about not being able to express herself.

    Hold up…I am late…in that deleted scene are those the infamous Herman Munster shoes? LOL!

    • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

      Hi Hannah Montana~I will have to say that every now & then. I don’t wear high heels or want to watch pregnant women in them. Too Scary. lol
      What’s going on?

      • HD says:

        Good morning, Baabee. Luann has called Alex out saying, “you came in wearing your Herman Munster shoes” and Alex says which is so silly, “they were Louis Vuitton.” LOL! And in the line that I LOVE, Luann says, like only Luann can, “well even Louis Vuitton makes mistakes.’ GIRL I DIE!!

        At any rate, in the deleted scene that Lynn posted in the blog it looks like the shoes that Alex is putting on could be the infamous Herman Munster shoes. LOL!

        • quincyil says:

          Hmmm. I thought Simon and Alex were getting ready to go to the Ramona wine tasting event of episode one in that video. Alex was nervous about seeing Jill for the first time.

          I bet the Munster shoes are huge clodhoppers and we will see them soon.

        • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

          I think I saw them. lol
          I thought that’s what Luann said in preview. I like my ugg knockoffs in winter. Very comfortable. Summer~sandals & tennis shoes with no heel. lol 😉
          I will tell you cause I trust you. They are made right here at Peebles! lol

        • error404 says:

          Lulu’s banter is always straight out of Ru Paul’s “Untucked”. For a drag queen: funny. For a socialite/royalty: tacky. Either way, a bitch is a bitch is a bitch I guess. LOL

    • Lavalady says:

      You know what, HD. I think Alex wear the HM shoes to Sonja’s party with the black dress. The party where Sonja throws her outta the house.

    Probably lost in this thread, but

    I am convinced JZ has has some plastic surgery and it is BAD. She looks completely different. Her eyes look tight, but narrow, not startled. Her nose is different. This is not a natural look, compared to before. She looks like Mayim Bialik’s much older loony auntie. And that dress. Should someone tell her that her stylist hates her? Absolutely awful. Isn’t she BFF with Kiki? Would Kiki let her go out of the house in that?

  76. Inquiring Mind says:

    Ive noticed some recent pictures of Alex McCord that clearly show a considerable amount of work she’s had done to her her teeth/smile, lips, and possibly more. It has changed her look dramatically. Has anyone else noticed this? Has it been publicly discussed yet?

    The change is striking.
