I Hate Jill Zarin Pregnant in Heels by Quincy IL
Robyn is going to have her baby in 4 to 5 weeks. She called Rosie Pope because she is getting married and needs a wedding dress. Originally, the couple, Robyn and Mark, was going to have a LA wedding where they had their child and later married, but their family wanted a shot gun wedding. Robyn had frozen her eggs at 37 and one year later she met Mark. They decided to fertilize the eggs and she became pregnant the first time. Rosie draws a design for a dress and Robyn agrees with the design.
Michele is having her second baby. She would like to ask Lord Edgar Wedgwood, her employer to be the godfather of her daughter. Michele is the Director of Public Relations for Waterford/Wedgwood which makes high end China. Michele is married to John, who we don’t meet. We do meet her day husband and work mate, Stephen. Michele says that the three of them are having this baby. Lord Wedgwood is a member of the House of Lords and the Darwin family. If he agrees to be the godfather of the baby, the baby will have access to the royal world and centuries of tradition. Rosie Pope is the perfect person to help Michele as she is a Baroness.
Steven and Michele will help prepare a British tea with traditional foods: scones, spotted dick (custard like dessert,) and sandwiches. The tea will be Wedgwood tea prepared in a tea cup with one spoon of tea for each person and one for the pot.
Robyn and her partner, Mark, live on the Upper East Side with their dogs. Their first date lasted 30 hour and they were engaged after one year. Mark helps Rosie put sandals on her swollen feet and he calls her the Good Year Blimp. Rosie arrives and asks questions of Robyn. Robyn has developed gestational diabetes. She gained 80 lbs. Robyn blames this on the IVF treatments and being depressed. Rosie is concerned about the candy and cake in the apartment. She feels Robyn is in danger and is eating too much.
Michele goes to prep school to learn British customs. You do not compliment the British person. It makes them uncomfortable. Michele said this will be difficult as she really admires the Lord. When the Lord stops eating, you also stop. After you walk up to greet him, you walk backwards to your chair.
Rosie goes to Robyn’s apartment with a nutritionist, Marissa. They go to Robyn’s kitchen and take foods that they have concerns to show Robyn and Mark. They throw those foods away. Robyn claims that she does not eat those foods, but a bit is out of the cupcake and Robyn took that bite. Robyn is upset and she says, “Whether I want to eat it or not. It’s my choice.”
Rosie asks Robyn and Mark to meet her in Central Park in workout clothes. Robyn has not worked out for one year. In the park, they meet with a fitness trainer and do exercises for pregnant women. Robyn has difficulties, but she should be able to do those exercises. They do squats and work with rubber bands on their legs.
In Rosie’s apartment, Rosie and her husband prepare to go the IVF Clinic for the insertion of eggs into her own uterus. This may be the day that Rosie becomes pregnant and she is concerned.
There is one week to Robyn’s wedding and they are working on her wedding dress. Robyn comes for a fitting and they made the dress large because they did not know what size s would be at the time of the wedding. It’s easier to cut down a dress than have it too small. Robyn does not like the dress. She says it looks like a night gown.
Michele and Steven are doing their homework. They don’t know how to cook, but they are following Rosie’s recipes for the food. They fail on their first attempt and try a second time.
Rosie has a rare night off and is spending time with her young son when Robyn calls. Robyn took the wedding dress to her tailor and he cut the dress up. Now, her left breast pops out of the dress. The dress is ruined and she asks Rosie to solve the problem.
Michele and Steven come to Rosie’s clothing store to find the proper maternity dress for the occasion. LT has Michele try on a light colored dress, but Steven says she looks washed out and it’s his job to dress Michele. Steven makes a comment about LT’s jump suit and LT says Stephen wishes he could wear a jump suit. Rosie rolls her eyes. The dress is dark in color and it looks quite proper for the event.
Rosie made arrangements for the tea at Belvedere Castle in Central Park. The table is set when Rosie arrives. She tries the dessert, spotted dick, and does not like it. She tells them to offer that after they have an answer from the Lord. The sandwiches have crust and she tells them to cut that crust off. The table looks rather messy.
At the wedding, there is chaos. There are dogs barking and the bridesmaids, in purple dresses are yelling at each other and at the bride. The bride is yelling back. Rosie brings 3 dresses from her shop and the bride likes one of them. During the chaos, a dog gets upset and urinates on the train of the dress. They clean it and the bride tells a bridesmaid to be nice to her dog.
The Lord of Wedgwood arrives. He is an older gentleman with a friendly smile. Michele and Stephen greet him and walk backwards. The Lord asks them what they are doing. They serve the Lord Wedgwood tea and he asks for a piece of the dessert, spotted dick. He, like Rosie, does not like the taste. He does enjoy the tea. Michele asks the Lord to be the godfather of her daughter and he smiles, stands, and hugs her. He said that he felt honored. The tea was a success.
The Jewish wedding is near the water. There are flowers and a canopy with flowers. The bridesmaids walk in followed by the dogs. Robyn walks down the aisle with her mother. Mark said that she was beautiful. Mark steps on a glass. Everyone is happy.
Outside of the wedding, Rosie takes a phone call from her physician. The pregnancy test is positive, but that could be from the hormone treatment so no one knows the outcome of the procedure. Rosie has to wait several more days and have more tests. She wipes a tear as she turns away from the camera.
One week later, Rosie rushes to Robyn’s house as Robyn has to have an emergency c section. The baby is in the breach position. When Mark’s mother arrives, they travel with Rosie to the hospital. Mark is babbling and Robyn is crying out in pain. Their daughter is born. Her name is Camden Rose. The mother and child are healthy, but the mother still has eating issues. The parents are calm and loving.
Rosie meets Michele and her baby in a park. The baby, Elle, is beautiful. Lord Wedgwood comes to see his godchild and he asks permission to hold her. He visits the child afterwards and thinks she is a beautiful baby.

Great Job Quincy! Thank you for all that you do!!! Lynn~
I have to throw in my two cents, as usual. The first mommy-to-be treated her husband like a doormat, that was completely disgusting to watch. When this crazy woman took her wedding gown to a dry cleaners, if I were Rosie, I would have walked away. It was completely ridiculous watching her scream at her mother-in-law as well. What a horrible woman!
The second mommy-to-be was using this man simply to say that she had a “Lord” as Godfather to her child. She had no proper ties to him and by rights the man should have turned down this “honor”. That was a disgrace to watch this woman abuse her relationship with the Lord by cornering him with this request. How could he say no as the camera’s rolled? I am honestly surprised he didn’t ask for time to think about it so that he could bow out gracefully.
I’m not sure if I like this show or not. It isn’t exactly offensive but it certainly isn’t “must see TV” either. What do you think?
Yesterday Jill Zarin appeared on Wendy Williams, I will say that Jill did not bring up the subject of Bethenny, Wendy asked Jill about it. I understand that these shows insist on asking these types of questions, they’re looking for big stories and they want their show to be the topic of discussion. Jill was better, she didn’t say it was a “fake friendship” or slam Bethenny in any way for a change so I have to give her credit for that.
Her look, however, should get someone fired! If her PR / Stylist team let her go on National television looking like that, they are just mean cruel people. Here’s what happened. Jill appeared on WWHL a few weeks back wearing that ridiculous Spanx wanna be top and 80’s high pony tail with the fake hair. She tweeted a photo of herself holding a bottle of Moet.
Wendy Williams tweeted back to Jill, “you have to wear that look when you come on my show next week!” Wendy, you crafty devil you, nice job! Jill arrives at Wendy Williams in a similar get up only this time the top was red and black and she did (thank you!) wear a jacket over the top. She arrives with two bottles of Moet and announces that they are donated. Jeeze Jill, you can’t even buy a bottle of wine for Miss Wendy? How cheap are you?
Jill answered questions about her new face insisting that she did not go under the knife but instead got a liquid facelift using injectibles.
Jill talks about Alex, it could have been worse, she did slip and tell Wendy that she should have Alex on her show to answer any questions about plastic surgery/injectibles but I thought it was pretty disrespectful for Jill to say that she was happy that Real Housewives of DC was cancelled. Someday it will happen to you Jill Zarin and let’s see how you feel about it.
Jill and Wendy played a game of describe/guess the Real Housewife, the best had to be when Wendy described the “New York housewife who is forever a teenager” and Jill guessed herself. bwahahahah Get a grip Jill. (of course it was everyone’s favorite 42-year old with the mind of a 13-year old Kelly Bensimon)
Bethenny appeared on The Nate Berkus show yesterday and I was really impressed by how well she came off, she was confident and funny. The way host Nate Berkus looked at her was with obvious admiration and respect. She did great!

A Local Wayne, New Jersey site introduces us to newest NJ Housewife:
Resident Kathy Wakile Joins the Cast of “The Real Housewives of NJ” – Wayne, http://patch.com/A-gH16
I have no idea what kind of housewife Kathy is going to be, but based on every photo that I’ve seen of her I have just one bit of advice. Step away from the eyeshadow! WOW!
I think every photo that I’ve seen of Kathy, she’s wearing eye makeup that is just gobbed on, it seems to be a 1st season typical mistake that housewives make. By season two they tend to hire stylists and become raving bitches.
Sonja Morgan vs. Alex McCord
Speaking of 2nd Season Fever and raving bitches, Sonja Morgan continues to deal with the wrath of Twitter members, she can thank Bravo for re-running that episode several times a day. As people see it for the first time or watch it and get angry at her all over again, they take to their Twitter account.
Tomorrow night Bravo will air Episode Three and it doesn’t look as though things will improve at all for Ms. Morgan. She continues to remind viewers that she and Alex have made peace but it isn’t going to matter much when she insults Alex on screen again tomorrow night.
Apparently Danielle Staub has been fired from her show “Social” on WealthTV. Did anyone even watch it?
Tonight Bravo airs a new episode of Top Chef Masters, we’ll have your recap here tomorrow by our very own Harvey the 6ft white rabbit with genius research skills and a quick wit.
Until Next Time…
Update: Some interesting quotes from a recent Jill Zarin interview:
THE WORD ‘BULLYING’ GOT USED QUITE A BIT TOWARD THE END OF LAST SEASON. WAS THAT YOUR INSPIRATION FOR THE NEW CHAPTER?
Jill Zarin: No. I wouldn’t say that. And the word bullying gets thrown around a lot. I was more inspired by the death of Tyler Clementi than that. But what happened on the show did bring up pain from high school, so I guess it played a role.
HAVE YOU TASTED RAMONA’S [SINGER] PINOT GRIGIO?
Jill Zarin: No. I don’t drink.
WOULD YOU EVER SING A DUET WITH COUNTESS LUANN [DE LESSEPS]?
Jill Zarin: If she asked me! Oh my god, she doesn’t want to hear me sing though. I’m pretty good at Hotel California, if I do say so. Luann has a new video coming out, and there are a few guest appearances you’ll have to keep an eye out for. But not all the ladies got asked to be in it, so expect some drama on the show!
