I Hate Jill Zarin Cat Ommanney on Real Housewives of New York
OK Bravo, listen up, assuming that there will be a Season Five of The Real Housewives of New York, we think that rather than bringing in a new cast member to liven things up, (ie: the very DULL Cindy Barshop) bring us DC’s favorite Housewife, Cat Ommanney! She would be an outstanding addition to RHONY and imagine the press and the attention it would bring when you announce this brilliant casting move!
My dear friend and blogging partner Quincy said it best:
Dear Comcast, the Boss of Bravo and Andy Cohen,
This is America and we fans should elect Cat O to become a new housewife on “The Real Housewives of New York City.” Bravo is just a corporation. We are the American fans of Bravo and we should have one housewife in Manhattan that tells it like it is.
Every franchise needs one honest housewife. Bethenny Frankel was our Greek Chorus in “The Real Housewives of New York City.” When someone was outrageous, Bethenny was there to point it out to us in a clever way. With the loss of Bethenny from the cast of our NYC reality show, there is no strong foil to Jill Zarin and the other stars. Alex McCord is too nice and has hives when she tries to deal with the women of Manhattan. Alex gets shocked at the outrageous statements and become tongue tied. RHNYC desperately needs a witty firecracker that simply won’t take “Bullocks.”
I can see it now. Jill Zarin begins to discuss whether or not it is correct to wear ivory dresses to a wedding. Cat O would tell Jill Zarin that it was better than wearing your mother’s draperies. Jill Zarin says to Cat O, “You never were a real friend to me.” Cat O replies, “Who are you again?”
Cat O has a memory like an elephant. She knew the comments from every cast mate at the reunion of DC. She has lists in her head.
Cat O would understand European history and would not doubt inform The Countess that a little event happened in 1789 called The French Revolution. There has not been a French Aristocracy since that year.
Cat O would be able to handle Ramona’s outbursts with humor. Ramona tells Cat O that she doesn’t care to listen to her. Cat O tells Ramona that she should turn off her hearing aid.
Cat O would share quality time discussing men as I am sure she has had as many good times as Sonja Morgan. They could discuss the differences between Spanish and French lovers. The Countess might join in that conversation as it seems she has experience in the region also. Kelly can tune down to a zero during those discussions and play with her hair while she thinks about looking for pigeon feathers in Central Park.
Cat O could also visit Bethenny’s show as a housewife friend who stops by to try Bethenny’s new cocktail mixes. I’m sure Cat O is an expert on good cocktails. Both Jason and Bethenny will love Cat O. Cookie will love Cat O. Cat O can throw balls for Cookie to run after.
In off season from the RHNYC, Cat O could go to Beverly Hills for luncheons at Villa Blanca. I don’t think Taylor would be allowed to threaten Kim Richards in the presence of Cat O. Cat O would definitely go London on Taylor for doing that.
Well said Quincy, Thanks for that outstanding post! Lynn~
Personally I would love for Cat to tell it like it is to these New York ladies, Jill would hire her attorney to see if she could get Cat tossed off the show, Luann would keep saying, “what did she say darling? I can’t understand her” and Kelly would cower just in a corner.
The RHONY died a little bit (ok a lot) when Bethenny left and Cat would bring it back to life!
I can picture Cat lunching with the blondes and the hysterical conversations over Ramona’s Pinot in the Hamptons. Cat is well traveled, highly intelligent and has led a fascinating life. She was a genius find and whoever cast her on DC deserves a raise but don’t let the demise of The Real Housewives of DC allow Cat to get away! If Bravo doesn’t hold onto her, some other network will snatch her up and you’ll be kicking yourselves! (remember Project Runway?)
How fun would it be as well to watch Cat have her friends from DC, Lynda, Staci and Mary visit and interact with the RHONY right alongside Cat. It is genius! Fans have been looking for cross-over Real Housewives and this is the perfect way to give fans what they want!
You were smart enough to schedule her for Watch What Happens Live – The Royal Wedding episode so you already know how very popular she is, imagine how brilliant it would be to have her as a regular cast member on RHONY! Think about it, take your time, you’ve got a few months before you begin filming Season Five, don’t let Cat slip away!
Speaking of your Royal Wedding episode of WWHL, what the hell were you thinking putting Luann on the show? What does she know about British Royalty? Nothing darling! This woman wrote a book on manners and can’t even live her life with human decency. She’s crude and rude and has no business talking about the British Royal family. It is offensive to the Brits! The only reason to watch is Cat Ommanney! You have access to Lisa Vanderpump who has actually lived in England, you do know that Luann isn’t really royalty, right?
Well, it’s your show but don’t blame me when Luann makes a mockery of it! Her one shoulder dress that she’s sure to wear will sicken everyone and your ratings will plummet, mark my words. We want fun, exciting guests like Cat, you would have done much better to pair her with Lisa Vanderpump!
Speaking of Housewives pairing….
A few months ago E!Online did a poll with some of the housewives asking “Who would win a war of words” and they even asked some of the housewives what they thought. I thought it’d be fun to have our own and ask you what you think?
Here’s E’s version:
On “The Real Housewives” there’s always a war of words! ET caught up with some of your favorite stars from the show to ask them which of their fellow reality stars would win if they were pitted up against a housewife from another city. Their answers may surprise you!
“New York City” Kelly Bensimon vs. “Beverly Hills” Camille Grammer
“New York City” LuAnn de Lesseps: “That is unfair. That is the answer to that. That is an unfair match.”
“New York City” Ramona Singer: “I think Camille would win. Kelly repeats herself over and over again. You don’t know what she is saying.”
“Beverly Hills” Kyle Richards: “I think it might be a tie.”
“New Jersey” Teresa Giudice vs. “Atlanta” NeNe Leakes
“New York City” Sonja Morgan: “Hands down NeNe. … NeNe is witty. She also has a vocabulary.”
Ramona Singer: You can figure that one out.
“New York City” Jill Zarin: “NeNe because she is taller bigger. … NeNe is very articulate, but Teresa gets her point across. NeNe is no fool, but I don’t want to throw Teresa under the bus.”
Kyle Richards: “NeNe’s mouth is like a tennis ball machine. That is one quick mouth.”
“Atlanta” Kim Zolciak vs. “New York City” The Countess LuAnn de Lesseps
LuAnn de Lesseps: “Oh, yeah,” when asked if she could take her.
Ramona Singer: “Kim would bury the Countess emotionally and physically.”
Sonja Morgan: “She would spin that wig.”
Jill Zarin: “The Countess hands down. … She is my best friend and I can’t go against her.”
Kyle Richards: “I am going to have to go with the Countess on that one because I like her.”
LuAnn de Lesseps: “I don’t really know Kyle.”
“DC” Cat Ommanney vs. “Beverly Hills” Lisa VanderPump
Sonja Morgan: “That is a close one. Lisa is very witty and very smart and she is very stable, but that Cat, she has a razor tongue when she wants to use it.”
Ramona Singer: “It is a tie.”
I agree with Ramona, Cat and Lisa may be a tie but how about that moron Jill Zarin answering simply because Luann is a friend and doesn’t want to go against her? Jill, it’s supposed to be a fun poll, get a grip. Besides no one really cares what you think. I love how Ramona took her answers so seriously, she does that on WWHL too, lighten up Ramona!
I really wasn’t that impressed with E!’s match up’s, I mean you really can’t include Kelly in a poll like this one because she’s ill equipped to go against anyone, my 10-year old son could out-wit this woman, lets leave Kelly out of this altogether, shall we?
Camille Grammer vs. Luann deLesseps –
I think the passive-aggression between the two of them would be a better battle of the tongues. Who would win this one? I would have to give it to Camille because Luann only seems to be able to come up with one-liners in her pre-arranged talking head interviews, I don’t think she’s all that quick with the wit on the fly.
Lisa Vanderpump vs Cat Ommanney
A good choice by E! and a much better match up, these two ladies are both funny and quick with the tongue, I don’t know who would win but I’d love to watch it play out.
Jill Zarin vs. Anyone
Jill would just cry, “don’t pick on me, you’re always picking on me! We’re not friends, we were never friends, We’re done!” Jill is still in the 6th grade, you can’t argue with stupid.
Jacqueline Laurita vs. Kandi Burress
Nice vs nice, no one can win because neither would engage.
Teresa Giudice vs. Sheree Whitfield
Teresa vs NeNe, would certainly be interesting, I’d hate to be the one to have to clean up the room afterward with all the broken glass and upturned tables. Sheree can be quiet and unassuming but when it comes right down to it, I think she’d nail Teresa to the wall. Sheree is smart, Teresa is shooting with an empty pistol.
Who would you like to see in a war of words? Let’s not pick on Kelly though folks, it would just be an unfair fight no matter who you choose to go up against her. It’s all just white noise to Kelly and she’s turned you all down to a “2” anyway. I’m just going to send her one of those huge twisty lollypops and let her be.
Tonight Bravo airs another new episode of The Real Housewives of Orange County, I was a bit surprised that Bravo is running the show on a Holiday since they preempted their schedule for President’s day a few months back.
Bravo has posted a few on line only clips, Tamra visiting a psychic, she breaks down crying because she is breaking up her family and she claims that Simon is still controlling her through his text messages (wow, he’s a magic man). Call me crazy but shouldn’t Tamra be talking to a therapist rather than a psychic? Tamra is quite the actress, she really should audition for a soap opera or something.
Another clip shows the brilliant Vicki showing up at her daughter Briana’s apartment to help her move dressed in a white sun dress. Vicki was clearly there for the cameras and not to help her daughter do anything. Vicki is the most selfish person on the planet!
One of the previews shows Tamra running into Jeana and they are both pretty vicious to each other. Tamra of course has the lowest blows because let’s face it, she’s trash! Jeana blames the entire break up of Tamra’s marriage on Tamra, I’m sure some of the blame is hers but it might be going a bit far to put all the blame on Tammy Sue. After all, Simon did let the money run out…
** Correction, it was ET Online that did the poll, not E!. My apologies.
Until Next Time…
