I Hate Jill Zarin Real Housewives of New York / Watch What Happens Live

I Hate Jill Zarin  Real Housewives of New York  and  Watch What Happens Live

First I want to thank you all who were here at such an early hour to talk about the Royal Wedding, it was so beautiful, what an amazing event.  The chat was excellent, I was so glad to see so many of you with us, that was really a lot of fun!  Best wishes to Prince William and Princess Catherine, the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. 

Speaking of the Royal wedding, Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live last night featured a Royal Wedding theme.    The guests tonight, Luann deLesseps and Cat Ommanney were supposed to go along with the theme, Luann made no sense to me, married for 16 years to a French Count but now divorced and living in New York, she couldn’t be farther away from Royalty.  Cat certainly did make sense, she’s from London and has not only met but snogged with the groom’s brother Prince Harry. 

Cat was just as feisty as we remember her, she seemed insulted by the ridiculous game that Andy came up with, sorry but Luann judging Cat when it comes to manners and etiquette, Luann hasn’t a clue.  This is the woman who talks behind people’s back and encourages others to do the same, she listens in on phone conversations and encourages secrecy, she demands apologies, talks down to people and is constantly passive aggressive.  Luann deLesseps has no business judging anyone.

If I were Cat, I’d be a bit annoyed as well and so I love that she called Luann out asking her what makes her such an expert on royalty.  Luann’s bumbling response of “well, I’ve had…you know…you know,….16 years….married and mingling with those people…you know the people at the wedding….those people….”  Good answer Luann, I would bet Luann has never met anyone at the British Royal Wedding. 

Cat knew more about the wedding and it would have been more appropriate for Andy to test Luann and let Cat tell her whether or not she was right, better yet they should have shown some of Luann’s scenes on the show and see if they can find anything regal about this woman’s behavior. 

Andy’s three obsessions tonight started with Ramona’s crazy behavior on tonight’s Real Housewives of New York.  At Cindy’s non-birthday party Ramona was anxious to talk to Cindy’s brother Howie, similar to Alex on a previous episode, Ramona wouldn’t take no for an answer, she practically begged him to talk to her while he insisted it was the wrong place and time.  Somebody get Ramona more Pinot!

Second Andy was obsessed with crazy Kelly making sand angels on the beach.  Enough said!

Finally Andy said he was obsessed with the Housewives being involved in the Royal Wedding and put a photo on screen showing a Housewives invasion on The Royal Couple.  Very amateurish and silly.

I was disappointed that the show seemed to dis Cat and made Luann out to be the “star” of the show, it was pretty disheartening. 

Real Housewives of New York

This is actually pretty fun without Jill Zarin, I could get used to this…yeah baby! 

As Luann explained at the last reunion, from season to season, there always seems to be someone who doesn’t want to film with someone else.  Kelly Bensimon refuses to film with Ramona apparently because she was mean to her on St. John last season.  I know what you’re thinking, when did that happen?  Sure Ramona called Kelly stupid, but she is.   What’s the problem?  Kelly said that all four of the women who went to St. John were bullying her, now apparently it was just Bethenny and Ramona. 

I think Ramona is getting the cold shoulder from Kelly because Ramona was apparently the hostess on Scary Island, the really funny part is that Ramona has no clue that Kelly is upset with her.  Hello Kelly!  Even when you ignore someone, they don’t notice!  Priceless! 

Luann was insulted by Ramona, just because Ramona was trying to ask her about her living arrangements with the kids.  Luann’s city social calendar cannot be ignored, but her kids can and so she spends 4 or 5 days with the kids in The Hamptons and 2-3 days a week in her apartment (which we haven’t seen yet) so that she can record more crappy music and sleep with her boyfriend in peace.  Ramona simply asked if she was a “Weekend mom” and since Ramona didn’t listen to Luann’s schedule she still doesn’t know Luann’s schedule.  If Ramona wasn’t listening to Luann, Luann certainly wasn’t listening to Kelly when she arrived at her home.

 Luann completely missed Kelly’s major insult to Native American’s by slamming her palm repeatedly on her mouth while howling like a 3-year old playing cowboys and Indians.  But Luann was insulted by Ramona’s questions and not Kelly’s idiotic behavior?  I don’t know how anyone could excuse Kelly’s behavior, being immature and a complete moron doesn’t mean she can insult an entire race of people. 

Kelly brought with her to Luann’s some of her jewelry and the only interesting part of that entire scene was the other housewives looking at each other and giggling behind Kelly’s back.  Oh, and those were her supposed friends. 

Sonja and Cindy meet downtown for a little typical housewife shopping and lunch.  Unfortunately Cindy’s fake teeth fell  out as she was drunk and popping pistachio nuts,  she refused to have lunch with Sonja in case anyone saw her like that.  Honestly, her million dollar teeth didn’t look a whole lot different from her natural teeth.  Sonja was clearly annoyed that their shopping/lunch date turned out to be an emergency dental situation and pouted that she’d have to eat lunch alone while Cindy laughed.  Sonja explains that she has a friend who is missing half of her teeth and still finishes off a steak.  We know Sonja, we met your psychic last season.  Wow!  I can see Sonja and Cindy becoming really good friends. I can’t even figure out why they arranged this shopping/lunch date. 

Sonja has a plan to have Kelly and her daughters over to have a little toaster oven cooking class, Sonja thinks it is a good idea to invite Ramona to try to rebuild the relationship.  A complete waste of time since obviously Kelly has no interest in having a relationship with Ramona and Ramona barely notices that the brain dead Kelly isn’t speaking to her.

Sonja and Kelly go riding, English style on what Kelly refers to as “High end” horses, they are actually performance/competition horses.  Sonja stupidly tells us that she used to ride all the time, “bareback” yet when she mounts the horse it is apparent immediately that she has no idea what she’s doing.  First of all, I highly doubt she ever rode a horse bareback, she may have ridden western style but English style is very different.  It was really nice to see someone besides Kelly fall off the horse but how funny was it when Kelly interviewed that Sonja’s fall was “really really bad”, yet  Kelly has had many worse falls as we’ve all seen in some really classic you-tube videos.

Sonja calls Kelly “brain dead” taking the lead from Ramona, and the rest of the viewing public and reminds Kelly that she is going to have the cooking party for Kelly and her girls.  Sonja had confided in Cindy but decided to keep it a secret from Kelly and surprise her.  It worked out so well in the past on this show, Sonja must be a genius.

The ladies spent most of this episode in the Hamptons, Luann arranged for all the ladies to bring their dogs for a charity dog walk event, Alex couldn’t come because her cat wouldn’t stand still long enough to put a leash on it.  Note to Alex:  If you’re going to be a Real Housewife of New York, you’re going to have to get a dog. 

Cindy can’t hold in her very first housewife secret, besides she’s brunette and Sonja’s blonde so all bets are off.  Cindy won’t tell Kelly why but tells Kelly not to bring her children to the cooking party at Sonja’s, Kelly is so curious she can’t stand it, so she threatens to tell Sonja what Cindy told her if she doesn’t spill the beans.  Cindy finally reveals the whole thing, Sonja plans on inviting Ramona to try to get Kelly and Ramona to make up. 

Cindy’s playing with fire here especially since Jill, the leader of the Brunette’s is out of town, she’s already made an enemy of Sonja, on the blonde team.  It is funny how Cindy and Ramona seem to have been friends for a long time and suddenly now Cindy learns things about Ramona that she doesn’t like?   Don’t worry about Cindy, next week’s previews show that Sonja is going to set her straight by cluing her in on the pecking order complete with charts and graphs. 

Alex behaved herself tonight and seemed to get along fine with everyone, Luann invited Alex to her home, Cindy invited Alex to her non-birthday party where her husband and son’s seemed to enjoy the 4-wheeling on the ATV’s , I guess in the Hamptons 4-wheeling is safer than horseback riding, silly me, I would have put Alex’s boys on the horses. 

So Kelly offended Native Americans, Sonja confided in Cindy and got burned, Ramona flipped out because Cindy forgot to order her wine, Cindy lost her two front teeth, maybe she’ll get two more for Christmas, Luann was a pretentious snob and Alex attended some nice parties and enjoyed herself.  Jill free and a great episode.  When the previews came on and Jill’s voice screeched out of the TV, I literally jumped scaring my poor dog who had been sleeping so peacefully.  Damn Jill Zarin! 

Jill told her fans (all three of them) that she returns at the end of the next episode so we’ll have one more almost Jill-free episode to enjoy before she is back to annoy everyone full time.  She is going to be so behind on the gossip and manipulating she’ll have to work double time to catch up but I have confidence in Jill’s skill, she’ll be back in the swing of things in no time.

Until Next Time…..

  1. Gleek says:

    Did you watch Cat tell LuMann off in the after-hours show! It was priceless. Loved it. LuMann was stunned. Love that Cat! Please tell us your thoughts on the segment.

    • Sammysmom says:

      Can you tell me where I can watch it? I cannot find it

    • ConfabulatingKelly says:

      What did she say?

      • Gleek says:

        She called LuAnn a hypocrite, two-faced shit-stirrer.
        Which is so true!
        LuAnn started-out trying to put down Alex but it turned on her.

        • Tiffany says:

          I loved that Cat stuck it to LuAnn. That show was PRICELESS! I think LuAnn would have rather soiled herself, accidentally in public; then have been on the same show with Cat. My hat goes off to you Cat! I think you need to be on the RHNW. You tell it like it is, and most of those ladies need that.

    • kit9 says:

      Cat was idiotic during the show. It is just a GAME. Jesus, does she not watch the show? Lighten the hell up. And, it just made no sense that she got so bitchy-it’s not like Luann and Andy were ridiculing her for not knowing everything Royal. And, Cat was still groaning about it in the aftershow. They were just having fun with the quiz, for god’s sake! Get a sense of humor, Cat. And, let’s be honest the only thing Cat is an expert at is sticking her tongue down a Royal’s throat. Oh, and lying. In the other thread-a poster dug up the facts and Cat, was, apparently, lying through her teeth about the age difference between her and Harry. Cat said 7 years but it’s really nearly double that.

      • MK Valle says:

        The age difference thing, I thought it was interesting that LuAnn brought it up. How much older is her ex-husband…goes both ways as far as I’m concerned.
        I was a little put off by Cat as well until she called LuAnn out in the aftershow when LuAnn was talking about Alex changing. LuAnn is a phony, pretentious bitch and Cat just tells it like it is. Did you all see the “gleam” in Andy’s eyes when Cat went after LuAnn, he loved it!

        • DJ Loops Fruit says:

          and how much younger is Jacque

        • Tiffany says:

          I was having a hard time seeing Andy’s gleam, through my own gleaming eyes. Cat is the missing link in the RHNY. To the producers, Get her on that show ASAP. I would love nothing more, then to see Cat put some of these women in their places. UMMMM, my eyes will be GLEAMING alot.

    • Christine says:

      Part 2 of the after show was truly priceless. Countless looked as she really did want to crawl up inside of that hideous. Oh, I would pay to see Cat take on our eternal victim Jill.

    • Maggie says:

      Been dying to!
      The superficial Lulu thinks her gutter humor remarks are clever. And, she considers herself an expert with the ” proper” way to do things.
      She sorely needs to learn how to be human.
      Truly believing she’s above others will draw life lessons to herself and I wonder what else is going to happen.
      It’s disgusting to watch her gossip while others listen as though it’s from the mouth of God.
      This is a hard flaw to get over, after all it’s keeping her thin.
      Had she not pulled Jill from the room when Bethenny wanted to talk they would probably have gotten back together. Don’t think the “Countess?” wanted that to happen.
      Those long awaited words, from Cat were worth waiting for. They were like water to a thirsty man or woman. I think the others were too involved perhaps to see this so clearly. Oh, Cat was SO VERY RIGHT ON! Loved it, loved it!
      New York Housewives move over, you desperately need Cat. I mean after all,
      Bethenny is gone!
      Oh groan, here we go again – Queen Sonja tells Cindy there’s a pecking order! LOL what a laugh.

  2. Sammysmom says:

    I fell even more in love with Cat last night. I hate Luann even more. I kept waiting for Cat to just throw her drink on her but she has way too much class to do what I wanted her to do.

    • floridagirl88 says:

      I don’t like Cat, but last night I would have been a part of her crew in a LuMan takedown!

  3. error404 says:

    the one smart, truthful statement in al of the long winded blogs, came from Alex (surprise, surprise) :

    “When someone says on television that they are concerned for you or your children, they are rarely truly concerned with anything other than gossip.”

    LOL ain’t that the truth!

  4. VAgirl says:

    These women are boring, not boring like the OC housewives, but boring just the same. I couldn’t even understand what they were talking about during the cocktail party at Luann’s, they were each so absorbed in what they had to say and talking over one another. I did think it was poetic justice that Cindy thought it beneath her to go to Governor’s Island and the other ladies thought it beneath them to go to Quog – he, he. As for Cat, like I said on a previous post, I think she had an ulterior motive of doing what she did, and that was to plant the seed in Andy’s head of how she would add such conflict if she were added to the cast of HWNY next season. She must know that the IHJZ supporters are campaiging to Bravo about adding her so she was just sweetening the pot a little. If that’s not the case, then she was probably pissed off that Andy chose Luann to be the “expert” on all things royal instead of her, the true Brit. I would have been too. Either way, BRAVO to Cat.

    • Mookies1mom says:

      I agree with everything you just wrote! I’m not sure what everyone was even talking about at Luann’s, nobody could shut up long enough for just one person to talk!

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        couldnt understand them at that party and didnt care
        Cindy is not only the biggest bore but she is just a 2 faced bitch
        worst thing to ever happen to a housewives show
        Now i know were all gonna be hating on NJ soon but can i just say everytime i see that new cast member that looks like the spahn of Theresa AND Caroline (you know the one i mean) twirl her fingers by her head while saying Cuukoo Cuukoo i just crack up

    • BlueSky_Forever says:

      At Cindy’s party it was very confusing telling Cindy’s brother’s girlfriend & Cindy apart. They look like twins! Cindy’s brother – Howard is it? has the most fascinating mouth & teeth. I wonder, do Howard & Cindy get their veneers at the same dentist? I should rather like to avoid that dentist.

  5. kotagirl29 says:

    I am so tired. I’m glad I was up for the live airing though because there were no commercials on BBCA.

    • VAgirl says:

      Luckily I was able to catch a nap this afternoon, so I feel better.

    • Kansas Girl says:

      It’s 7:30 and I’m still ok. I’m expecting to hit the wall any minute! No nap and work all day. I expected to not make it this long! It sure was fun this morning, tho!

  6. Stella says:

    I had posted this in the chat blog but I wanted to know if anyone noticed that Kelly said that you should only be away from your kids if you are having fun or working. To me that solved the mystery of why she always goes places to have fun without her kids and then tries to sell the idea that she spends so much time with them. In her psychotic crackhead brain she has a good reason to be away from them so in her world it doesn’t count.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Kelly would not be a good mother if she didn’t play hard and work hard!

    • nathania says:

      it sounds like a nice way of saying ‘if you are going to be miserable you might as well be around your kids while you are’.

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        the only sane thing that kook ever said was the thing about you dont have to like everyone but you do need to be polite to them
        whatever she said
        if i didnt know better id think she had half a brain
        but then she made those sand angels and i knew her meds were wearing off

  7. Bloshka says:

    Did I watch the same WWHL as I did? Cat did not know the answer to one of the questions about royal etiquette and then got angry and petulant and refused to participate. The question was: “How do you address the Queen?” The answer, per Cat, was “Your Royal Highness” but the correct answer was “Your Majesty.”

    While I don’t think these are matters that make any difference in real life, LuAnn knew the correct answer, while Cat did not, and she’s British! I would have expected a Brit to know the answer to that one since they are exposed to their royals.

    I’m a lover of The Countess Crackerjacks Chronicles, so I’m not here to make a case for LuAnn. But I do believe that when she married the Count, she either researched or was taught about titles and proper address.

    I get that you don’t like her. I don’t either, especially. But I think it’s fair to concede that she might be right once in a while.

    • VAgirl says:

      Yes, the Countess has studied her manners manuals and never lets anyone forget it, not for one second, dahling. Cat was aware that each invitee to the Royal Wedding received a 22 page etiquette (sp) manual, so apparently the invitees probably needed to be reminded about protocol also. Luann was not aware of that fact. So, who cares? Luann is still a pretentious snob and Cat isn’t. She didn’t even know the name of the designer of the dress she wore last night.

      • LynnNChicago says:

        Luann didn’t even know what a “Gingy” is…comeon has that woman been living under a rock? How many times has Andy mentioned it on WWHL, obviously she doesn’t even watch the show.

        The English people are not “exposed” to the Royals any more than we are. They see them on TV just like we do. I wasn’t impressed that Luann knew how to refer to the Queen, Cat had a few dates with Prince Harry, that is impressive!

        • kotagirl29 says:

          I just loved that Cat called her on her bs. Cat also tweeted this morning that she did not have a good time on WWHL as she can’t stand the fake oozing out of LuMann (or anybody).

          I also loved how Cat got pretty pissy when LuMann kept butting in during the good/bad for England game.

        • Need a Hobby says:

          I somehow seriouisly doubt Lulu and her make believe “Count” were hobnobbing with the royals, as she wanted to imply. She’s so seriously out of that social circle it’s not even amusing.

          Lulu’s (and her ex’s) title is as phony and empty of substance as are her overweening pretensions. I also suspect her prior life with her Count and his associates might not bear up to much scruitiny.

        • Christine says:

          I think that the game should have been reversed so that the Countless who declares herself the Letitia Baldridge of the 21st century should have been asked the questions. She’s the self-appointed expert – it would have been more fun is the tables were turned.
          At no point did Cat say I’m a Brit, I know about all things British or royal.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        My basic problem with LuAnn is that if you want to guide others in all things proper than you better be leading by example! She does not.

        • Dani says:

          I agree “walk the talk Luann.”

          • fort lauderdale gay says:

            I agree, but it is so hard for LuAnn because all she can do is slither.

            • BlueSky_Forever says:

              Out pulling weeds today thank goodness no little luanns slithering about. I’ve found a garter snake & corn snake (both very small & harmless thank goodness) in the past.

          • Sammysmom says:

            Ooo, I like that. “Walk the talk”.

        • PJ says:

          Was it necessary for Countless to be so brutal about Alex? Cat just said what everyone here has already been saying about Countless.

        • babykakes says:

          i’ll never forget the party Luann had for her daughter & Victoria’s friends to teach them about etiquette around the time her book came out & her daughter is stuffing food in her mouth, eating like a PIG! my 2 year old had better table manners. remember? you would think, considering the way Luann always talks about manners, that her daughter would naturally eat & act like a lady..never has happened.

          • Terry says:

            Reallt? You’re OK with picking on a kid? Poor Victoria.

            • Maggie says:

              I agree with you. I felt so sorry for Victoria when her mother embarrassed her in front of the world. Seemed like she cared more about what strangers thought then the self-concept of her own daughter.
              My mother wasn’t there emotionally for me and it seemed that way with Lu’s and now with Victoria. We all have our emotional battle scars to heal.

      • nathania says:

        my feeling about that is that someone who needs to lean that heavily on that stuff does it because she doesn’t have an inner guide going ‘this is right, this is wrong’. I.e conscienceless and doesn’t understand anyone but people just as mean and nasty on the inside as herself. A slimy snake covered up in meaningless rules about which fork to use first is still slimy. I suspect that’s why she can’t stand Alex and didn’t like Bethenny, because those two are not afraid to be themselves. And the reason they aren’t afraid to be themselves is because they are nice, decent people at the end of the day. If someone like Luann or Jill allows themselves to be governed by their instincts, which are petty and vile, then all hell breaks loose and they don’t have any friends. So it’s no wonder Luann is so enamored of the rulebooks.

        • BlueSky_Forever says:

          Living in Europe amongst the “royals” must have scarred her into thinking we “gauche Americains” desperately need help. Uh no, we are doing just fine. Apparently her book sales (10,000 sold?) mean that we don’t want to know about “Class with the Countless.” LuLu must have had many “royals” looking down their noses at her.

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      well Cat is a brit but she isnt Royal
      and lulu was at one point however lowly a royal she may have been

      • kotagirl29 says:

        The de Lesseps were enobled they were never considered royalty or part of a royal family.

        • Christine says:

          There isn’t really a royalty in France anymore. Count is the equivalent of an Earl in England as in the the Earl of Stove Top Stuffing Mix or something else as ridiculous. The Countless should also stop spreading the BS about the de Lesseps building the Suez Canalas she did at the talk with the young girls in Harlem. Ferdinand de Lesseps was a major player in the Suez Canal Scandal involving bribery. Ferdinand was convicted, fined and sentence to prison. The prison sentence was commuted thanks to some political pressure.

          • kotagirl29 says:

            My only point was that possessing a French title does not a royal make. For example, if there was still a King/Queen in France the Count would not be in the line of succession for the throne.

            • PJ says:

              You’re right it isn’t royalty, they were never in the royal family, it’s the nobility or aristocracy.

  8. tori says:

    Lynn, You have to watch the After Show part 2. I agree with Gleek. Cat gave it to Luann. Hope you’ll write something after you watch it. Go Cat!

    • Sammysmom says:

      OMG, I totally agree. I just watched it and it was awesome!!!

      • nathania says:

        Me too, I found it on Bravo, holy cow, I love Cat so much right now.

        I’m just sad it took Cat who isn’t even on that show to tell Luann the truth. And you can tell that Cat actually got infuriated by the things Luann was saying about Alex, because like most normal people, Cat can see that Alex is actually a decent human being and Luann is a huge sleazebag.

        I have to say, just that little foray into the bravo blogs makes me so grateful to Lynn that we can post here and not be censored or edited.

  9. Need a Hobby says:

    As I recall, Kelly’s thing against Ramona is more than just Scary Island but likely mostly the aftermath. Remember at Jillz’ “Zarins on Ice” party (promote ‘the book’) episode, when Ramona tried to seriously talk with Kelly about her concern about Kels’ mental health & she should get help, etc? & of course Kelly wasn’t having any of that. She’s fine, everyone else was crazy, etc. Why would Ramona say such things to her, blah. IMO THAT’s what Kels has against Ramona. More than whatever happened on ‘scary island.’ Ramona didn’t just brush off Kels’ crazy, but tried to get Kels to recognize & do something about it. So Ramona is for Kels that dark place Kels doesn’t want to confront. IMO

    Also, Kels is like so socially responsible, sophisticated and sensitive to others: that ‘woo woo’ business is just another of Kels’s nutball remarks for which people apparently cut her loads of slack since no one takes her seriously.

    Lulu is not “offended” because she really doesn’t pay any mind to Kels, doesn’t take her seriously, treats Kels as a kid, but a “kid” with very good social ‘connections’ so soccial climber Lulu’s nice to Kels. If someone else less ‘connected’ said it you bet ole Lulu would be mooing about it unceasingly.

    Back to Kels: remember when recently in one of her talking heads she said “No speaky Engrish” in a cliched asian “accent.” She really isn’t playing with a full deck. People may cut her slack because of that. Trying to explain things to Kels must be like talking to a padded wall.

    I knew Cat would do/say something on WWHL when paired up with the pretentious phony Lulu. Lulu’s simply insufferable. “Alls” I know is, as much as I didn’t like Cat on DC, I would so much rather go have a drink with her anyday and shoot the breeze than spending any amt of time with that posing hypocrite Lulu. Cat nailed it on the aftershow IMO!

    Howdy all, gotta go. Just a quickie drive by. 🙂

    • Stella says:

      I agree with you on why Kelly is so against Ramona. I too noticed that Ramona is the only one who didn’t brush off what happened on Scary Island and I figured that is what has Kelly so bent out of shape.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Ramona called Kelly brainless at the Kodak party, crazy on Scary Island and Kelly said at the reunion that Ramona called her stupid. This season Kelly didn’t want to be diagnosed by Ramona, have her kids around turtle time and said that Ramona didn’t “protect” her on Scary Island. IMO, Kelly with the assistance of LuAnn and Jill have programmed Kelly to go after Ramona. Because all Kelly’s problems are really Ramona’s fault – duh!

        • Adgirl says:

          Right. Last night Jill said “Ramona promised to protect Kelly” on the trip. Really??? Is that why Kelly picked a fight with Bethenny at the lunch table over stomping grapes? Because Kelly believed Ramona would admonish Bethenny?

          • Need a Hobby says:

            I thought it was Sonja who promised to “protect” Kelly to get her to go on the trip.

            I don’t recall Ramona saying that, but I maybe I just don’t remember it.

            Doesn’t matter, Jillz is full of shit anyway and always agenda driven, so her word/view/opinion is pretty much worthless.

            • DJ Loops Fruit says:

              I believe BOTH Ramona and Sonja said it at one point
              what i want to know who was protecting them from HER

        • Need a Hobby says:

          But as you can tell, Kels can slough off the usual insults from Ramona most of the time, but she really got stuck on being “diagnosed” by Ramona. That seemed to have triggered an aversion response in Kelly.

          I suspect Kelly’s had years of people “diagnosing” her.

          • DJ Loops Fruit says:

            much in the same way she fixated on the Madonna comment from Bethenny

            this woman is seriously deranged

            • Okie Folkie says:

              That’s a good and very valid point. Seems as though Kel has to have at least one of her cast mates ‘in her sights’. From “yer notta Chef, yer a COOK!” to “I dont need to be Diagnosed by Ramona”.

    • Kokuanani says:

      BTW, did Kelly and the others pick up the term “Scary Island” from THIS blog????

  10. WindyCityWondering says:

    It is getting really hard to figure out what is offensive language/action because there are different rules for different people! Watching them watch each other is more interesting than what they are actually doing!
    Ironically, WWHL/ before and after shows was more like the housewives I like to watch! Bravo better find a place for Cat – asap, she is housewife gold!!

    • quincyil says:

      I agree. Cat O should have a place at Bravo, but I think Andy was not happy with her as she called him on his foolishness too.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Well deserved – 9 times out of 10 those games are lame. But Cat gave him gold in her dismissal of LuAnn (he didn’t say a word to stop it). His twitter this morning was people wanting the after show…. BravoAndy is smart – he knows he has to put Cat somewhere in the housewife pantheon.

        • fort lauderdale gay says:

          It was like LuAnn choked on humble pie, and Andy failed to administer the Heimlich maneuver.

          • Mookies1mom says:

            I loved that Andy didn’t bale Luann out when Cat had her say! Luann kept constantly thinking all the questions were for her and interrupting Cat. She needs to read her own book because she obviously didn’t write it.

            • sophie says:

              Kelly has so much as called Andy a liar and she’s still on scary island with the rest of the gals. It’s probably not so much whether or not you’ll piss him off, but how much you’ll raise the ratings and his paycheck that matter.

            • PJ says:

              Obviously Countless really thinks she is the etiquette expert, she believes her own hype.

              • nathania says:

                Honestly I think Cat did Luann a favor. I don’t believe she was wrong to interrupt and shut her up, but had Luann been allowed to go on she would have been digging her foot further and further into her mouth. I mean, she so reviles Alex for presumed social climbing, by which I assume she means schmoozing, when Luann hustled her way up the ‘social ladder’ by means of her honeyhole. Which is more dignified? She’s living in one hell of a glass castle.

    • Okie Folkie says:

      ITA, WCW! I do hope they replace The Teeth(less) with Cat if there is a Season 5. She wont take poop from “Her Royal C U Next Thursday”.

      Also, has anyone here researched if LU was indeed correct when telling Cat that she was wrong in the way one would/should address the Queen?
      Could it be remotely possible that either of those terms would be appropriate? I wonder….. ‘cuz, just because she said it, doesnt make it so.

      If Andy doesnt find somewhere for Cat O. I believe he will be sorry, very sorry. She is BOLD, Gold, funny & snarky with a British accent.

      I’d loooove to see her do a Round ‘er 3 w/JZ!
      Wait a minnitt, WHAT the HELL am I sayin’….. JZ couldnt last 2 seconds with Cat. She’d be screaming “QWIT pickin’ on me! Yer so MEAN! I didnt do nuthin to YOU! Where’s my Baaaawwby?”

      Great recap as usual Lynn! Also, thank you so much for addressing Whack-Job’s atrocious behavior regarding Native Americans.

      • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

        Actually, this answer I know! As it qualifies as useless information for my lifestyle, of course I know it–I am a veritable fountain of useless information! The Queen is addressed as Your Majesty the first time you address her, and then if she continues the conversation you address her as Ma’am. (and it is Ma’am as in Ham, Not Marm as in farm) LOL.

        • PJ says:

          Maybe Cat got it wrong on purpose since Countless was not Cat’s cup of tea. I suspect that Cat actually knew the answer.

      • kotagirl29 says:

        I looked up how one should address the queen. In person, initially one addresses her as Her Majesty, followed by Ma’am if conversation continues.

        In written form one addresses her as either Her Royal Highness or Her Majesty, followed by Ma’am.

        So Cat wasn’t completely wrong.

        • Okie Folkie says:

          Thanks ya’ll for doing the research. And in the case of The Duchess of Dryer Lint, already having that knowledge! (p.s. I loooove yer moniker!)

          I thought that Lulu said to address the Queen as Ma’am as in Moooom. I did know that it was Ma’am like jam or ham. I thought Lulu said it the wrong way.

      • Sammysmom says:

        Cat could be the Bethenny we miss so much

      • floridagirl88 says:

        and “…leave, just leave”

  11. Dani says:

    I loved it that Cat put Luann in her place, and told her that she was two faced (because she is). Luann has such a high and mighty attitude, and I have never understood why. She married money she certainly didn’t come from money. I think that she is really very insecure and the way she copes with her insecurity is to act like she is better than everyone else. I would love to see Cat on HWONY and take on Luann and ill.

    I loved the royal wedding and read everyone’s comment. Thank you Lynn for the great blog.

  12. lillybee says:

    I thought that Cindy should have called Sonja the morning of the lunch date and explained that she couldn’t do lunch because of the chipped tooth. It would have been the polite thing to do.

    • Dani says:

      Maybe Cindy hasn’t read Luann’s book lol.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Cindy is making major rookie mistakes! She has no manner, she doesn’t know the pecking order and she didn’t approve of SOP – the make up/surprise ambush and no one crosses Sonja!

    • ImaJillHater2 says:

      Agree. So strange that she’d bring her teeth & glue WITH her & try to glue them back on in the shop.

      • Kansas Girl says:

        And she tried to get Sonja to help. She wanted her to hold the teeth or something. Gross!

        • Maryla says:

          It is for sure gross. But remember Cindy’s day job.

          If she can wax and bedazzle a stranger’s cooch, she can surely ask a friend to superglue a tooth!

      • Kokuanani says:

        She should have called up Lynn Curtain {RHOC] and asked her to come over with her glue gun.

        She probably could have gotten a little “dazzle” on those repaired teeth as well!

  13. Adgirl says:

    I wonder what Andy’s motives for bringing Cat & LuAnn together were? Do you think he also wanted to see their chemistry?
    Andy seemed pretty annoyed at Cat when she quit his stupid game. If Andy had made the ladies take turns then Cat wouldn’t have gotten pissed. She was PO’d because Andy set it up that Cat had to courtsey to LuAnn & Cat had to prove to LuAnn that she knew how to hold the teacup. That infuriated Cat!!

    Cat isn’t as funny as Bethenny, but they both have huge balls… err… BULLOCKS!

    • quincyil says:

      Bethenny looks at the reality show as business and then she toys with Andy like a cat with a mouse. Cat shut down. I wonder if something was said during a commercial.

  14. Dani says:

    I thought this was cute.

    What William said to Kate: When the bride and her father joined the groom at the altar at Westminster Abbey, the Prince mouthed these words to Middleton: “You look beautiful.” According to some lip readers, he then quipped to Papa Michael, “We were supposed to have just a small family affair.” Cheeky! Meanwhile, tweeting observers could not resist rewriting history with jokes at William’s expense, such as this one: “We should have gone to Vegas.”

      Submitted by Savannah Nichole on April 29, 2011..Jill, I think it’s great your going to Chicago, if you could pencil in a interview to speak about yourself more with the new and exciting changes you;ve made in your life maybe Lynn from Chicago could pencil you in and do an interview with you. I don’t know what her schedule is but you never know.

      • quincyil says:

        I caught it in case Lynn misses it and they take it down at the request of JILL ZARIN….

      • VAgirl says:

        Lynn, let me know when she calls to schedule the interview. I hope you can pencil her in. LOL

        • LynnNChicago says:

          OMG that is hysterical! I’ll be waiting to hear from her. Savannah, where ever you are, I adore you! hahaha

          • LynnNChicago says:

            WOW that didn’t last long, but they didn’t just remove Savannah’s comment, they CHANGED it to read, “I love you Jill”. WOW I wonder how many comments bravotv.com changes on a daily basis?

            • quincyil says:

              Teams of interns work day and night to protect Jill Zarin at bravotv.com.

              Well, the evidence is here….

            • lillybee says:

              That is low. Makes one go umm.

            • VAgirl says:

              Taking it down is one thing, changing it in my mind is unethical.

            • kotagirl29 says:

              I cannot believe the gall! I know she thinks most viewers are pretty stupid, but with as much as her name and actions are mentioned here (especially) doesn’t she know that crap like that will get noticed.

            • Savannah001 says:

              OMG, I got online earlier and I went over to see if they put my post through and I saw just my name and I love Jill and I was freaking out, I could not believe it ! LOL I told my husband, I could not understand how my user name could be used again and it’s clear Bravo is actually changing posts ! Jill is a piece of work I shouldnt be surprised by her since she was so ready to get attorneys involved in that poll that she lost on to Ramona. It;s like she’s trying to buy people that can do damage control for her and it;s all a big LIE. She;s got Bravo changing posts twisting words to create a better image of herself and its all a LIE she;s like a used car salesman, she’s a sneaky snake. She has actually hired people to make herself look better it;s like behind the scene she;s running for public office and let;s not forget that she says she didnt want to come back but so many people wanted her to do the show. OMG she’s not going anywhere and never was. IMO she was on pins and needles worried that they wouldnt want her to come back. Jill Zarin loves this life she’s caught up in it now and it’s taken her over. My goodness when she appeared on Andy’s show she’s trying to look like she’s in college and it;s not working for her. I hate when she continues to try to sale that book, the fact is it;s been over a year and she now can’t give them away.

              But on a very serious note she is a BIG liar she just is. Her plans are all wrong she’s paying people to paint a pretty picture of herself. First of all no one should have to pay anyone to do that you are responsible for your actions and she needs to be the one to make the changes but she can’t change if she could she wouldnt need all these paid people behind the scenes it should be personal and she’s handled it with the help of people and to me it makes her look alot worse.

              Quincy, I’m so glad you copied that, I dont know why Bravo has blogs if they don’t put anything through if the cast can have them take them down why bother posting at all and my little post didnt have cuss words, it was catty yes 🙂 but I didnt attack her. Bravo should have just taken it down instead they made my blog a lie, I certainly do not love her.

              • Tiffany says:

                I can only hope, that at the RHNY reunion; Andy asks Jill why she lied about being asked to be on SWTS. I want to watch her try and squirm her way out of that one. Jill publically announced that she had been asked to be on SWTS and had turned it down. LIE, LIE , LIE. ABC’s Skating with the stars, made a public announcement; stating that the ONLY offer made to a housewife, was to Bethany. LOVE, that they called her BS out. So PLEASE, Andy, ask her about that.

      • quincyil says:

        I went to Bravo for the evidence:

        I believe they do this all of the time. They create blog comments on their site.

            Unbelievable. I don’t even know what to say!

          • PJ says:

            Was there a time and date on the comment about Lynn interviewing Jill?

            • quincyil says:

              The times are on our board and that is when I went to capture it, but I don’t know when they put it up there. Several people saw it there and I cut and paste as I thought the interns would remove it. I did not expect that they would change it.

              I captured what was there.


  16. Dani says:

    A blog from the “Today” show explains that a white dress for non-brides isn’t as rare as it used to be. Bridal designer Reem Acra told TODAY.com: “I like the idea that (Kate’s) sister is wearing white… It makes the whole thing more thematic and looks clean and modern.”


  17. HD says:

    Lynn, thank you for the new blog. Girl, you know I have been lurking and commenting all day just waiting. Thank you for being up early and chatting LIVE during the wedding and just allowing us a place to post comments in real time so we can laugh and comment and all that as things are going on. I LOVE IT!!

    Girl, let’s talk about Luann! She done lost her mind! Basically, as you said, leaving her kids so she can screw. You are NOT Madonna or anyone else. Last time I checked A LOT of these REAL celebrities make every effort to bring their kids along with them on movie sets/shoots/etc. because they are TRULY missing their kids. You recall all that hell Halle Berry just went through even to the point of dropping out of a movie to be with her daughter. How can you leave your kids to be in the city to record WHAT?! Child help me! I have seen it all! We all know why she is there!

    Ramona-What is going on with her? And I like Ramona but even I am starting to wonder what the hell is going on with her?! She is doing just a little bit too much. Like I said I am a direct person. I don’t b.s. and I call it as it is but even I use some discretion. Ramona, not every place friends house that you attend is going to have your Pinot. Give me a break! And the way she asks for it is demanding. I mean sheesh, calm down and sip something else.

    On a side note for anyone lurking or wondering, Blue is one of my favorite colors and even sometimes when I wear Blue it doesn’t look great on me but then I try something else on in the color Blue and it looks divine. So Blue for me has sometimes been a mistake but Blue is still one of my favorite colors. You live and you learn and I still love the color Blue. 😉 That’s all.

    • VAgirl says:

      That was sweet if I get your meaning.

    • California35 says:

      Blue is one of my favorite colors too. Mostly “Royal” blue 😀 😉

    • California35 says:

      Ramona has confronted Luann about the fact that she doesn’t spend time with her kids. I reemmber when she was sending her daughter to Board school. Ramona was so disapointed and said that she tries to spend as much time with her daughter, and couldn’t understand Luann didn’t.

      I have noticed that she either doesn’t show her kids, or when she does they have conversations as if they don’t know each other much. I agree that moms need time for themeselves or for dating, but the priority still being the kids. It was weird, but so Luann, when she and her kids were at the skate board store asking her OWN son if she did that. I was like, uh don’t you know?

    • LynnNChicago says:

      LOL Love that post HD! I love Blue too! 🙂

      I’m wondering what the hell is happening with Ramona too, we see her in the previews breaking down crying on the bed after she argues with Jill in Morrocco too…I’m not liking this new overly emotional Ramona.

      Did you read Jill’s blog, she’s implying that Ramona is drinking too much. Actually if you read Jill’s blog she’s got underhanded digs at almost ALL of them. She’s never going to change. Not that I expected her to change .

      I thought Luann got nailed last night, who cares! Cat got her good, Luann thought she was going to be the hostess with the mostest and take over the show from Andy with her Daaahhhling’s and her big ugly hat….well Cat took her down a peg or two and made her think twice before she pushes anyone else aside. I wish Cat would have known and/or remembered the story Caroline told about how Luann ignored her because she didn’t know that Caroline was a housewives, when she found out she was actually a housewife, Luann kissed her ass…..fake fake fake!

      • PJ says:

        I never read anything Jill says. I do think something is wrong with Ramona this season however. I was wondering about her drinking. We have watched her drink a lot over the time she has been on this show but this season she is kind of over the top. Her reaction about the cigar was not normal. It’s just a thing and her friendship was what was real. The her approaching creepy Barhop brother at the party was wrong, plus demanding her wine as soon as she arrived. Ramona seems off balance this season. I hope that changes.

    • Okie Folkie says:

      I will wager you look wonderful in Blue. If you like it & it makes you feel good, then you are bound to look good. We are our own worst critics.

      Luman just wants to bang, Bang, BANG Ross.

      Her kids are at that tender age where, uuummmm……well, ya’know like they like, actually NEED uummm, whats it called???Oh, yeah, A PARENT!

      I think she just doesnt wanna ‘deal’ with a pot smokin’, sneaking out in the night, daughter. Her son has begged her not to go out, in Season 1. Wouldnt that alone melt yer heart & any WARM BLOODED Mother most likely would stay home for Taco night? I dont know, I dont have children. But that scene broke my heart.

    • sophie says:

      How about menopause? Sounds/looks like it to me, because I’ve been there and am just coming out of it. Early, which is a blessing and a curse. Nice to get it over with, but my 40’s were hell since I had no idea I was in menopause. Didn’t expect to deal with that until my mid-50’s at best.

      She’s TOO ramotional and flip floppy. She’s in her late 50’s so it’s bound to hit her in the face any second. Either that, or she’s having a very, very late pregnancy. At any rate, she’s got a hormonal issue.

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      HD she asked them before hand if they would have it as its the only thing she drinks and she said to them if you dont i can bring my own
      they told her dont worry we have it and then ,didnt
      so everyone else was standing drinking but Ramona
      Clearly she may have a drinking problem or Bravo is editing to make it look that way
      and YES they do edit to put a slant on s/l

      • HD says:

        I didn’t know she asked beforehand and I missed some of the show. If I was here I would just bring it. I would not expect every place I went to have it although it is a common wine but when you go to a friend’s house they may not have it. She has her own line, bring a few bottles and leave it at that. I would never do that if I went to a friend’s house. If they didn’t have it I would probably shut up and just drink whatever.

      • nathania says:

        It might not be Bravo. Or just Bravo. It might be the evil doings of Jill, and Slightly Nicer Jill, otherwise known as Luann. I think that they almost are trying to extract revenge on everyone that was there when Kelly lost it at St. John, by taking them down one at a time. Because no one is going to mess with their little Kelly. And Sonya is astute enough to realize this so she is trying to straddle both sides of the fence so she doesn’t go down with the blondes if they happen to lose. And they might, because none of them are inclined to kiss Andy’s @ss.

    • BlueSky_Forever says:

      thanks HD…you are true blue to me

  18. California35 says:

    Wow Lynn, you are the man (ok the woman lol). You stayed up late, you wrote the blogs and you are here.

    I am reading peaces here and there..and I want to coment on the first part of your blog. I TOTALY AGREE WITH YOU!! Dising Cat and Luann to be the “star” the one that knew everything OH and the one that would keep butting in when Cat was talking. Even if just to agree with her. It was sooo annoying when Luann would agree with Cat saying things like “very good”…as if she was surprised that Cat knew. You know Cat the child who got is just learning to do something….

    Cat probably was thinking “Luann is still a housewive?” “NYHW is still on the air with wives like this and mine got canceled??!!”

    • California35 says:

      ah and another thing! lol

      Cat was more quiet then I expected, but when she spoke her mind, both Luann and Andy would “uuuuu” at it….ugh…I am glad Cat was still able to say something though 😛

  19. WindyCityWondering says:

    Oddly enough, Cat’s WWHL appearance overshadowed this week’s episode of RHNY. She would be an excellent addition to NY, she could even replace Jill because she would get Ramona and Alex, dismiss both Sonja and LuAnn, call Kelly out. Shoot – get rid of Cindy and get Rosie Pope in the mix – Bitches and Brits!

    • HD says:

      It sure did overshadow it. I am sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo GLAD someone FINALLY called Luann on her b.s. It was like the heavens parted for me! I could watch that over and over and over again and it will NEVER get old!

      Was it just me or did Luann look like she could cry?

      • VAgirl says:

        She was definitely trying to keep it together. I have to hand it to the Lumann, she can usually keep her cool under pressure. But she deserved that dressing down. It was a long time coming.

      • quincyil says:

        She often has that expression when she is confronted. She expected to be treated like royalty on the show.

        Cat O’s father made money, but she is a commoner like us.

      • California35 says:

        Hi HD,
        I didn’t think that…but it could explain all the bla bla bla, it was like she couldn’t stop herslef from talking lol

      • Adgirl says:

        Can stone cry?

      • kotagirl29 says:

        LuMann looked like she was ready to cry and run all at the same time. She tried, for like a half a second, to stand up to Cat then she just couldn’t do it. When someone calls her out she folds like a bad poker hand. I don’t think she is used to being around someone who is not impressed with the countessness of it all. No way was Cat going to cow-tow to a royal wannabe when she has made out with the real deal and had more interaction with real the real upper echelons of “high society”.

        • nathania says:

          Luann’s standard reply to everything is ‘you don’t know me’.

          You don’t know about my parenting habits, you don’t know about my marriage of seventeen years, you don’t know math well enough to add up how much older my husband was when we got married, etc etc etc.

          It’s strange to me that she cops the ‘you don’t know me plea’ whenever criticized in the slightest but considers it perfectly justifiable to give all kinds of advice to people she doesn’t know. Meanwhile, NO ONE knows HER well enough to make commentary about anything she does. So bizarre.

          • MicheleF. says:

            ITA. Having a conversation with her is like trying to have one with a person whose only response is “Your mama.” I wish Cat would have been more articulate when slamming Luann. When she was saying that Luann was a people pleaser I had flashbacks to when Kim on RHOBH was telling Taylor the same thing. Funny thing is Luann and Taylor took it as a compliment, at first anyway.

            • nathania says:

              sycophant would have been a better word for Luann.

              I don’t know quite what it is that these women see in her to defer to. She is physically imposing and seems to use that to her advantage. That is probably a larger part of it than anyone realizes, everything she does is leaning down into someone’s space and being quasi-intimidating in a barely detectable way.

              • kotagirl29 says:

                I don’t think that her size has much to do with it. Shill, Kookoo, and Doorstop are all enamored of LuMann’s title. They look down their noses at Alex and her perceived social climbing when they are guilty of the same. They all want to be part of New York’s social elite, but it ain’t gonna happen, they are in the circle of wannabes.

    • California35 says:

      Hi Windy,

      I wish they would just cancel NYHW and create a new one with ONLY some of the wives we already know…the popular ones. Definitely no more Kelly, Luann and Jill.

      • Adgirl says:

        If Bravo would make the sides more even then I say keep the terrible trio so they can have their turn getting beat up.

        So far it’s the mean girls winning all of the time.

        • California35 says:

          “…keep the terrible trio so they can have their turn getting beat up.”

          Good point!!

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Guess I am mean – I want heads to roll – I want an uber queen bee in NY – it isn’t Jill, it could never be Jill and it would shake up the franchise if Cat came to town.

    • Adgirl says:

      WCW love the Rosie Pope idea too. She was a Baroness. Isn;t that better than a Countess?

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        I think a count is higher than a baron but then this would be comparing English to French peerage so I don’t know – where is our Dutchess?

      • kotagirl29 says:

        In the British system, the ranks of nobility are:

        1. Duke/Duchess
        2. Marquess/Marchiones
        3. Earl/Countess
        4. Viscount/Viscountess
        5. Baron/Baroness

  20. Furalis says:

    I understand why Cat was so irritated as she had to sit with a woman
    who thinks she has successfully climbed the social ladder and she is
    better than others. She is fake to everyone she meets thinking she has
    the proper etiquette but then talks behind their backs viciously.

    I was watching Oprah today and they were talking with the pastry chef
    that was originally on the Queens staff and then went on to work for Princess
    Di after the divorce and he was talking about the protocal of getting
    William ice cream when they were having afternoon tea with the Queen. The
    Butler would call down to the kitchen and then there were like 5 or 6
    people involved in the process of getting the bowl of ice cream – getting
    the tray, getting the napkin, getting the bowl and then serving the
    ice cream. Each person handled things seperatetly. Then he went on to explain
    when working with Princess Di William would walk into the kitchen to ask
    for ice cream and the chef said help your self.

    That is the difference between regular people and who LuMann thinks she
    is – my point being if she had the money she would prefer the Queens
    treatment to Princess Di’s and then talk about the process of how
    everyone goes about serving her, but mind you she did not grown up
    with that royalty treatment just because she has the title of countess and
    pretends like she did.

    Weird point on Oprah today which said Charles has never put tooth paste
    on his own tooth brush. I find that odd. Talk about the old reign vs
    the up and coming reign.

    I think the Royals are finally realizing what Princess Di did for
    them to bring them into the new century and realize they need to be on
    the level with the public. And sad to say LuMann is acting like the
    Queen and I believe she believes she is royalty.

    • fort lauderdale gay says:

      I think the Royals through Di discovered the freedom gained when doing things for yourself.

      • Golden Girl says:

        Holy Sh*T if he can’t even put tooth paste on his tooth brush how does he even know what good sex is?

        • Debbie says:

          Does anyone remember when Charles’ cell phone conversation with Camilla was intercepted and printed? He was (I believe) still married to Diana when he told Camilla he missed her and wished he were her (ugh) Tampax.
          I don’t even want to consider what he thinks about his sex life..LOL

      • BlueSky_Forever says:

        What I loved about Diana is that the people loved her, cheered her & gave her their hearts. Diana got more applause than the Queen & her son ever did. That made them very very jealous of her. Remember when Diana’s coffin came back from France…her funeral…the entire world cared about Diana. William looks so much like his mother & Kate is lovely. I really like the fact that William wore his Irish military uniform for the wedding. Kate is Welsh. Already they seem to care about people more than royal nonsense. Did you know that they invited the barman from their favorite pub? He got a front row seat. So here’s an Irish/Celtic blessing for William & Kate

  21. casey says:

    Hi All,
    I am off topic but had to share something. On Tamra Barneys FB page she is constantly writing that she is working on getting her own show with Eddie. Her fans will often write and say I wish u and Eddie had your own show and she always responds by saying -” I am working on it”. Please tell me she is not getting her own show!!!! Please!!!! Does Bravo think she is a Betheny? Or does Tamra think she is a Bethenny. Has anyone heard about any of this?

    • California35 says:

      UGH!!! I hope not, I WON’T watch.

    • cabbie413 says:

      oh please… its called youtube lol just like everyone else lookin for their 15 min

    • Furalis says:

      Maybe a porn show. Some men would watch..

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        she could call Danielle for some advice! lol

      • nathania says:

        yeah, it’s very weird.

        because she said something about being ‘hotter’ on her intro.

        like she doesn’t get that mostly women watch this show.

        to be perfectly crude, porn is free on the internet. very few straight men want to follow the drama and exhausting behavior of women like Alexis and Tamara for titillation, they want to pull up a naked chic online and use their imagination, for which there is probably very little dialogue. Both of those women are barking up the wrong tree. I don’t know what market they are aiming for, lesbians? I can’t speak for anyone else but I am not attracted to either of them. Although I was thinking the other day that it is a shame that Alexis has gone blond and busty, because I imagine she would be quite stunning with brown hair and a normal breast size. She might actually appear to have a very classically beautiful look. It’s such a shame she kind of trashed what she is in order to conform to OC norms.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      I really doubt it, if you notice on almost EVERY housewife’s facebook page someone says that they should have their own show. In Tamra’s case she answers those people who say that, the others (like trained dogs) see that Tamra only answers the posts that tell her she and Eddie should have their own show so they post the same thing and it becomes a snowball. Tamra is working with the snowball. She figures the more people who say it, the more attention she gets from bravo. We know, just like the HW know that Bravo has people monitoring all of the Housewives pages to see what fans are saying.

      • casey says:

        I hope you are right Lynn. I would lose all respect for Bravo if she got a show!!!!
        Thanks Lynn for having a fun place to share our thoughts.

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        Ive told Alex & Simon they should have thier own show JUST so i wouldnt have to endure housewifes of NY any longer
        its just getting TOO mean spirited as of late
        and i cant see it lightning up anytime soon
        and Cindy is the biggest snooze EVER

    • Adgirl says:

      Every single HW has claimed to be working on their own show. LOL. Kim Z? No show. Jill? Nope. NeNe? Umm nope.
      Tamra?? Maybe the tractor channel has a time open at 3am.

      • California35 says:

        Theresa was going to be on Dancing with the Stars, remember? lol

      • Need a Hobby says:

        Yeah, I think even Kim Grannypants of NJ has tried to troll that “getting a show” line.

        Tamra can probably get a show of some sort—do they have something like the Spice Channel on Public Access TV? I haven’t a clue. If not, then it’ll be a video by demand download, all major credit cards accepted, or something like that. Ugh.

  22. WindyCityWondering says:

    I didn’t miss Jill….again! Not one little bit – she is irrelevent and needs to leave the party. And like Lynn, I groaned when I heard her foghorn voice.

  23. dickens says:

    I don’t know if anyone knows or not but I was wondering, if Diana was still alive, would she have been allowed to attend the wedding? Diana’s mother couldn’t attend her wedding because she was divorced from her dad. Fergie was also not allowed. Does anyone know?

    • Furalis says:

      This morning on the Today show anchors were talking about where she would sit if she was alive.. So I don’t think that would be an issue… But could be wrong..

    • VAgirl says:

      For some reason, I just don’t see William allowing that to happen. I think he would have insisted his mother be at the wedding.

    • Adgirl says:

      I’m sure she would because when they want to the Royal Family makes exceptions. Wasn’t the Queen’s sister and a princess or two divorced?

      Frances Shand’Kidd wasn’t just divorced – didn’t she run off publically and dump the kids? She made herself notorious. The dad was at the wedding and he was just sa divorced as his ex-wife was.

    • quincyil says:

      Fergie really ruined a good thing. She should have weathered the marriage for the money as she has been destitute and miserable all of these years. It must have killed her not to get an invitation.

      I read that Diana’s close friends did not get invitations too. If someone was unkind to Camille, they were not invited.

      • jeang says:

        And that really sucks because in my tiny little insignificant mind, had it not been for Camilla having an affair with Charles, Diana would still be here today and at that wedding. William and Harry are way better than me to allow her to be there. Charles happiness or not, his infidelity and shirking of his promise till death do up part to diana caused Diana to become divorced and in that car in Paris.

        • vilzvet says:

          Yes I agree, and it is not insignificant of you to think that at all. She wouldn’t have been dating that guy and therefore wouldn’t have been in the car with a LEGALLY DRUNK DRIVER. Great chauffeur he was. Paparazzi or not he was not equipped to drive Diana. It’s amazing anyone survived that crash.

        • mariareads says:

          Oh, I so agree with you! I can’t look at that repugnant woman who cheated w/ Charles and drove Diana mad!
          The 2 of them should have been looking straight up to make sure the ceiling of that cathedral didn’t fall on them. If they had not treated Diana like a piece of garbage, fit only to breed while the queen and all knew full well Charles would have that Camilla cow on the side forever, there is no way that Diana would be gone now. I blame them all. What a disgusting thing that was. Luring her into a marriage when she was so very young and making her believe that it would all be OK.
          He’s a bast*rd and Camilla is a cheating slob. They disgust me. ~ No problem with me speaking my mind about it!

      • Sparkles says:

        Diana was used to breed to “the heir and a spare.” So sad.

    • neroes says:

      I watched when Diana got married and I believe her mother, grandmother, and step-parents were there.

    • Christine says:

      Diana’s brother, Charles Spencer, was in attendance.

      • housewifeaddict says:

        Yes – Diana’s family sat on the same side of the church as Kate’s family.

        Fergie is a completely separate issue – she’s probably not allowed anywhere near the queen.

  24. Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

    Fergie wasn’t excluded because of the divorce. A couple of months ago she was busted red handed selling access to Prince Andrew. she thought she was selling to a reporter, but it turned out to be Scotland Yard. It was all over the news. After her book, and the other scandles, she is now officially OUT! A palace official said you will NEVER see her at a Royal function EVER!

    • AZ Girl says:

      Fergie has a spending problem. She is knee deep in debt.

    • Adgirl says:

      I forgot all about that. Desperate Fergie. She doesn’t even own her first name anymore since the pop star Fergie is better known than the ex-princess.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      Question is – what about when her daughters get married.

    • Need a Hobby says:

      The sting was run by a tabloid newspaper, not the cops. The tabloid reporter was posing as a businessman willing to give “Fergie” money for access to Andrew.

  25. AZ Girl says:

    Last night LuAnn with her daughter in the kitchen. Daughter was sitting on the Kitchen counter. I would NOT allow my kids to sit on the counter. Way to go countess.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      And are you curious about why Victoria did not go back to boarding school after freshman year? LuAnn does not know her daughter and red flags should have gone up like a rocket launch when V told her she was fine with her spending time in the city…..

    • jeang says:

      It is like the Duggar kids, sitting and standing on the counter, getting feet and butt germs where food is prepared. Is that ok in the Countlesses handbook?

    • BChick says:

      And Chewing with her mouth open…..Now that’s what I call Class!

  26. lillybee says:

    I thought that Lulu’s daughter wasn’t going to boarding school because of lack of money, same reason the townhouse was gone. Lulu is no longer living large.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Alas 2 million (LuLu’s reported net worth) doesn’t go far in that fabulous circle but wouldn’t the Count pay for his childrens’ education????

      • Kansas Girl says:

        In one season Luann talked about how she didn’t want the kids in boarding school, but the count insisted as he had gone to boarding school and he wanted them to have the same experience. Thus, I’d think he’d be paying.

        • lovemamaearth says:

          Lu was all for boarding school when Ramona said negative comments about it.

          Cat is no Bethenny. B never used criticism of someone to get her own show and if she had, it wouldn’t be a show worth watching.

          Kissing a kid young enough to be your son and then bragging about it isn’t a resumé either.

      • BlueSky_Forever says:

        Luanne’s house in the Hamptons probably has property taxes per year over $30,000 maybe even $40,000. That’s before the mortgage payment. Private school for both kids plus keeping the house methinks wasn’t possible. So she’s economizing. She probably stays with Arabique Jacques in NYC as a rental would be at least $4,000 a month. If she’s careful with her $ from Bravo she can just barely eke out a living. Once Bravo goes…who knows how she will carry on. How long does alimony last? Child support ends either after high school or college. Guess it depends on her divorce decree with the ex. She needs that Bravo paycheck.

  27. VAgirl says:

    OT. My mom just told me her apartment complex (mostly seniors) held a High Tea today in honor of the royal wedding. I thought that was sweet.

  28. Candace says:

    Anybody know when Joe Giudice’s criminal matters will be adjudicated? I thought that would be coming up soon, and the final bankruptcy things as well.

      VAgirl when you copy the link you go to the input line at the top (while you are on the story you want to link us to is, where the http:// is) then hold down the clicker (I have a mouse pad on my mac laptop) then while you are holding down with 1 finger of one hand use a finger on your other hand to scroll across to the right on that input line at the top…you must keep rolling to the right in order to get the entire link. Release your fingers. Now that should be highlighted. Next go into “edit” at the top of your screen & click on “copy.” The link you want is now stored. Come back onto Lynn’s blog. You are in the “reply” box on the blog. Click where you want to post the link in the reply box.

    Words cannot express my joy at watching Countess Squash Blossom High Horse get thrown off said horse. Did anyone else notice the corner Cat was painting her into when she said “I’ve watched you for years” and Countess started to argue “you don’t know me”…She almost forced the Countess to say that there isn’t much reality on RHONY and that she is only acting for the camera. That certainly could have been a career-ender for the Countess. And what was up with the duct tape on her gold necklaces in last nights RHONY episode? I’ve read that the Countess is unbelievably cheap, but come on. Couldn’t she at least spring for a couple of safety pins? Hells bells, I’ll wager that Rosie Pope would give her a couple of those.

    • Furalis says:

      Every time i read “Squash Blossom High Horse ” I laugh hysterically you hit the nail on the head. So So funny!

          Yes Cat was very good at cornering Countless Squash Blossom High Horse (great name!). Of course we know you Lulu unless you’ve been ahem acting…isn’t this a reality show? Loved Cat for doing that!

      • FlowerPower says:

        I’ve been meaning to say the same thing Fort!! Best. Name. EVER.

  32. kotagirl29 says:

    I don’t know if this was posted on the Royal Wedding blog, but I am going to post it here. There was much discussion this morning about the similarities of Kate’s dress and Grace Kelly’s well here is photographic proof of how close they are.


  33. plainviewsue says:

    Cindy really turned me off last night. Between the teeth debacle and her attitude towards Sonya, this girl has got to go. She made it out like she actually lost her teeth!! Sonya came in from the hamptons and as someone who lives on Long Island, I can tell you the trip to Manhattan is at least two hours.

    I do not enjoy her, and Louann is a bitch. Maybe if she wasn’t a “weekend mom”, her daughter wouldn’t be getting into trouble! I’m sorry; her kids might not be toddlers, but even at their age they need a parent home with them.

    • fort lauderdale gay says:

      But I have to admit, If I was living under the same roof as LuAnn, I’d be escaping at night, too!

    • jeang says:

      I think teenagers need their mom around and participating in their lives even more so than when they are infants and nannys with supervision can take care of them. There is no more crucial time in a child life than being a teenager. It usually defines the person they become and the friends they are influenced by.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Which is what Ramona was trying to say to LuAnn but it is impossible to get through all that class, manners, moral outrage CSBHH parttime/fulltime mother of the year constantly throws.

        • Golden Girl says:

          Heck Yes! Teens need their parents more then infants! I don’t understand why most parents think the opposite!

          • BlueSky_Forever says:

            It’s the last chance you have to put them on the right path. Teens really really need parents to love them enough to set boundaries. Lots of hugs, encouragement, laughter & rules to follow.

  34. Sparkles says:

    Hi everybody… okay, I am one of the few who did NOT like Cat last night. I hope I don’t offend you with my opinion, but if we all agreed it would be a bit dull. So here goes…

    It was nice of Andy to allow Cat on WWHL, which gave her an opportunity to plug her book. Nobody forced Cat to appear. So why couldn’t she play the games with a sense of humor? She was a terrible sport.

    Cat was angry that Luann was a guest and didn’t like how the first game was structured (which wasn’t Luann’s fault). But hellloooo…the whole premise was camp! The concept of Countess Luann and Cat providing commentary on the royal wedding was for laughs. This is WWHL, not the BBC! For goodness sakes, the third guest was a dog in suit, right? WWHL humors Kim Z. as a singer and Sheree as a designer…and they treat the Countess with the same irreverence. (BTW, I loved the clip with Luann clapping.) So why did Cat have to take it so seriously?

    It seemed that Cat was mad/humiliated that she got an answer wrong. Because she couldn’t be clever and funny (like Bethenny might respond), Cat became increasingly bitter and nasty.

    In the aftershow, Cat even got mad that Luann was asked to play the “good for the Brits” game because she’s not British. I mean, seriously?? Luann was not invited to appear in the Parliament! (BTW, what’s ironic is that during RHODC, self-important Cat criticized President Obama for not replying to her wedding invite and not attending some award dinner for her husband. Yet Cat believes an American isn’t entitled to opine whether Amy Winehouse is good for the Brits?)

    Cat uses the “I tell it like it is card” to justify her rudeness. To me, that’s no different from Caroline or NeNe “keeping it real” — which is an excuse nowadays for being mean. If you play the “I’m so honest — I tell it like it is card” — well, you better be honest about yourself as well. Because Cat (who was not clever enough to come up with a smart retort) lied about age…she is not 7 years older than Prince Harry (which would make her 33 now) she is 13 years older. Isn’t that the sort of thing she would cry “bollocks!” about if someone else did it?

    Thanks for hearing me out. I just don’t think Cat is funny or nice….just an angry person. Does anyone else agree? Or am I alone?

    BTW it was fun doing the live wedding chat…thanks, Lynn and the gang!

    • housewifeaddict says:

      I found the show unwatchable last night. Cat was acting like a sulky child, and LuAnn was over the top pretentious and fake. I don’t know what stick Cat had up her ass, but she needed to whip out the one liners and make fun of LuAnn, rather than sulk.

      • NJ Bev says:

        Cat had her chance….
        she missed it on WWHL..
        I didn’t see the aftershow, as well as 85%
        of the people who watched the show.
        She blew it, and I hate it, almost as much
        as I dislike Luann. (my 1st original dislike
        in the series!)

        • DJ Loops Fruit says:

          she did attack her Lulu non stop on the after show part 2 BUT
          she also was sluring her words seemd drunk Andy looked like he was loving it for all the wrong reasons and this is either gonna make her NOT be on another h/w show or put her right in the thick of things with the ny cast
          my guess is she is done

      • Sparkles says:

        LOL – that’s what I was trying to say in a nutshell!

      • nathania says:

        yes, that is a good description.

        And the way she was so flirty with Andy, it was just icky.

        I mean, do men actually flirt with this woman? She looks like a linebacker. I know some men have a thing for amazon/tranny looking types but come on. She bats her eyes and acts like a fourteen year old girl. Apparently she is getting attention from somewhere. There is no accounting for taste I guess.

    • error404 says:

      I neither know nor care enough about Cat to opin if she’s angry or not, but she did come off as sulky in the after show clip I saw. She really doesn’t like Lulu, that much I got. LOL

    • Suzieq says:

      I really really dislike cat. I Agree with everything u said and I hope to never see her again!! GO AWAY!!!

      • HD says:

        I hear you and understand you but after soooooooooo many years of watching Luann just get so many passive aggressive digs in on people I was OVERJOYED that someone finally told her off! I don’t care if it was Cat, Bethanny, the Salihi’s or even if that little dog Giggy barked it to her, I was just happy that someone FINALLY called this woman on the carpet.

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      i will say this in Cats Defense on the aftershow
      she only ripped LuLu A new one when Lu started to really get nasty about Alex being a social climber

      Really LuLu if Alex is a social Climber what The F were you
      you married a count
      before that what were you
      a model
      before that what were you
      a little nobody
      see the irony yet you dumb drag queen!

    • klmh says:

      I wonder if Cat felt thrown under the bus with the discussion of royalty and an american woman knowing about more about protocol than she. She appeared less knowledgeable than Luann and became defensive, imo. That would explain her behavior.

    • Sammysmom says:

      It is a great thing we can all agree to disagree. That’s why this blog is so much better than the ones that only post one side of everything, either all positive or all negative. I loved that Cat called Luann out on the thing that some of us viewers have wanted to say but had no way to do it.

  35. Furalis says:

    Lynn – I just want to say Thank you for all of your hard work. I took full advantage of last nights chat and the wedding this morning (time off) and you really have dedicated your self to let all of us just rant (which is wonderful) and everyone shares all of the links that really pull everything together.

    I was on a conference call today and before starting about 4 of us were talking about the wedding and I told them I was blogging about the wedding (which is out of character for me – news junky) and they asked where and I described the “I hate Jill Zarin blog” from RHNY and they all watched and we starting talking about Jill. Well, they hate her too. It seems universal.

    I gave them the blog name. The people here are great and you have created a wonderful platform for all of us to vent.

    Thank you

    Rewatching the wedding recap shows and I have say William’s voice is like buttah, smooth and sexy. Would love to hear him break out in a Cockney accent just for laughs. Kate too has a beautiful voice. Her brother also did a fantastic job with his speech, that could not have been easy.

  41. Kukulet says:

    Okay…I’ve been providing thorough research for numerous books and articles on the British royal family for 20 years, and I own the Diana website sanctioned by Harry and William…so I’m gonna add my two cents and say that neither Cat nor LuAnn are about to be hired by Debretts Guide to the British Peerage.

    LuAnn was married to a French count whose ancestor BOUGHT the title. It’s not what anyone besides LuAnn would consider a “significant” title…ex-hubby is merely one of a large crowd of minor nobility. LuAnn needs to stop prancing around like she was married to the Prince of Wales. Being married to a minor French count does not give his fourth wife an automatic leg up on the inner workings of the British aristocracy. I doubt LuAnn ever met any of the British aristos who attended the wedding this morning, much less hung around with them on Kensington High Street.

    Cat’s got a better grasp of British aristocracy…but not by much. If she doesn’t know that the Queen is always referred to as “Her Majesty” (the title of HRH is reserved for Prince and Princesses of the Queen’s family), then Cat really hasn’t been paying attention, especially for someone who claims to have moved in those circles (if allegedly sleeping with Harry is the same thing). In the royal world, the difference between “Majesty” and “Highness” is like”Titles 101″-very basic stuff.

    Someone needs to tell those two that a British accent and a minor title by marriage doesn’t make them royal “experts”. It’s kind of insulting to those of us who have put in years of time and effort to understand the ways the peerage works.

    FYI: Kate’s new title is HRH The Duchess of Cambridge. Formally, she is also Princess William, but she won’t be called that. She’s not Princess Catherine-one has to be born into the royal family to use the title in front of their Christian name. (Diana was never Princess Diana, either.)

    Anyway…Kate looked lovely in both gowns (although didn’t care for the mohair bolero with the second gown much) and the wedding was beautiful. Best wishes to the bride and groom!

    • TLM says:

      Haven’t seen the 2nd gown yet… I just got home.

      As much as I despise Cat and don’t like Luann much better, I think it was BRAVO that was coaxing the connection between the ladies and the Royal wedding for WWHL programming. I mean, it was more topical to have those two on on the eve of the Royal Wedding than, say, to have Tamra on talking about what a liar Gretchen is for the 3000th time, or Jill on to talk about her latest sheet pattern selling at Bed Bath & Beyond.

      Re: Luann’s title, she seems to say whatever is in her favor depending on the circumstance & conversation. If people come down on her for being aloof, she minimizes the Countess thing and dismisses it as just “fun”; if she feels she’s being disrespected or attacked, she holds the Countess title up as a shield.

      Cat is just a bitter, angry woman. I feel whenever you see her she’s usually smiling, but often seething, and it comes out in her vitriolic sarcasm. I truly felt bad for her former husband. I think people only latched onto her because she directed a lot of it at the Salahis, who deserved every attack they had coming. But Cat seems to do this to everyone. I just can’t forget how rude she was to Stacy and her family when she was invited to her home on two separate occasions.

      • TLM says:

        I’m sorry, I meant to say, “or Jill on to talk about her latest sheet pattern IN THE 99-CENT CLEARANCE BIN at Bed Bath & Beyond.”

      • Kukulet says:

        Okay, fair enough…Andy did manipulate the two of them into the royal commentary on WWHL. But, still, LuAnn and Cat both, at other times, pretended to be more savvy than they actually seem to be. LuAnn does it with the Countess drivel, Cat does with through her claims to have “known” Prince Harry. I guess it just irritates me.

        I’m not a big fan of Cat’s, either. I agree with you, she seems very bitter and angry. I liked the way she confronted the Salahi’s during the reunion show, but her behavior in Stacy’s home both times was just pure bad manners. And “I tell it like it is” isn’t an excuse for bad manners. And she really did milk that Prince Harry thing to pieces. I’m not sure of all the details-can’t remember if she claimed to have slept with Harry or just kissed him-but, regardless, as soon as their interlude ended, Cat sold the story to the tabloids. So…she had a liaison with a guy and then made some cash off it. Where I come from, there’s a name for women who exchange sex (or tales of sex) for money, and it isn’t complimentary.

        LuAnn puts more stock in that title than she admits to-that’s been obvious from the beginning. I’d like her a lot better if she’d get back down to Earth, but the whole pretentious “dahling” act is like nails on a chalkboard.

    • Cusi77 says:

      Kukulet_ Thank you for all the information, it is fascinating!

      So Diana was: HRH Diana Princess of Walles….(?)

      The classless countless after her divorce is not anymore “Countess LuAnn de Lesseps” but LuAnn Countess de Lesseps and the same commoner she has always been

      And I agree, to bring those two to WWH was an insult to our intelligence. I would have had more respect for Andy if he just skiped the entired charade!

      • Kukulet says:

        During her marriage, Diana was HRH The Princess of Wales; after the divorce, she was Diana, Princess of Wales.

        LuAnn was never Countess LuAnn de Lesseps- since the title was his and not her own, she was never entitled to use the Countess before her Christian name. Properly, she was always LuAnn, Countess de Lesseps.

        • PJ says:

          It was at the Queen’s discretion and the Queen did not let Diana keep the HRH after the divorce.

    • Sparkles says:

      Kukulet, that’s interesting. I never knew that “Princess Diana” was not her official title!

    • nathania says:

      all I can say is whoever sold husband count the title of count, then
      damn them to hell for all eternity for creating the monster Luann duh whatever the abominable shit stirrer, smirker, cackler, dahlinger, turquoise lasso-er, lycra stalker, bargain basement bin boot lover, back-stabber, etc etc etc.

      Just to think, one ‘no sale’ could have prevented Sasquatch du Lesseps from inflicting herself on innocent Bravo viewers.

      • SkewedHalo says:

        I love it!! Someone who hates Luann as much as I do. I think I could watch Cat confronting LuMan’s uppity SCHTICK from here to eternity. It’s golden! Lumann always thinks her fake persona impresses. Can’t blame her sorta, when Bravo hired her for it but anyone with a shread of self-awareness would be making fun and light of the fact, not milking it, thinking people were impressed instead of being repulsed and ridiculing your pretentious self. I don’t blame Cat one bit for being so overcome by LuAnn’s fake persona that she couldn’t pretend to play along. Anyone with a MODICUM of self-respect wouldn’t either.

        • SkewedHalo says:

          LOVED when she basically told Andy “I’m not a Housewife, so you can’t toy with me” And then proceeded to drive that point home. SHE RULZ.

    • fort lauderdale gay says:

      Just read your take on the perfume. Hilarious!

  42. housewifeaddict says:

    I just read Jill’s bravo blog – and I’m sorry to admit it, but I agree with her that it was hard to watch the kids on the ATV without helmets. She clearly had a serious problem with Ramona, but it trying not to be awful to Alex.

    Poor Sonja – I think things are getting worse and worse for her. Soon her only friends will be Ramona and Alex. The plan Jill and LuAnn seem to have is attack Ramona but ignore Alex and Sonja for now. And tell the world how great Cindy and Kelly are to keep them close.

  43. MicheleF. says:

    Gosh, I love this blog! I have been reading it for a few weeks and I hope you don’t mind if I join in the fun now. Like many, I don’t have anyone to share housewives with and I felt like I was losing my mind reading the Bravo blogs! So glad I found this! So, jumping right in, I have to ask why do you think Kelly more often than not refers to her ex-husband as “my husband.” (and don’t say ’cause she is crazy – that’s a given! lol) It drives me nuts. Sonja even repeated it that why when they were talking about Elle being his 2nd wife.

    • quincyil says:

      We are happy when new people post and share with us.


    • Mookies1mom says:

      Welcome aboard!

    • Adgirl says:

      MicheleF. Welcome!!

      Why does Kelly call Gilles her “husband” still? Because she can’t call him DADDY?

      Seriously, I think her divorce destroyed her. She seems like a girl that is secretly super needy. I think when Gilles was ready for a real conversation he dumped her. I’ll bet she really lost it. KooKoo Kelly. Inconsolable. Devasted. So much so, that he keeps her in the same apartment building he is in, to make the change easier on her. It probably took a good year for her to steady out and put her “smile on” (which I’ve heard her say a few times).
      So, Gilles is her platonic husband father figure.

      Anyway that’s my take on the situation. Adios, Lunatic!

    • Sammysmom says:

      Hi and Welcome a board. (Wow, I just thought of that. Should I copyright it.)) LOL. I think Kelly only uses the name for the attention, people to think she is fabulous and to get invites to places. What I wanna know is, why does she ALWAYS and I mean always have to leave everywhere she goes early? Is she on probation, house arrest or what? Maybe House arrest and uses the places she goes as “work” and has to be home by a certain time. It drives me nuts. ((and I am really nosy))

  44. Jill Who? says:

    Oh how I love Miss Lynn! Hysterical as usual!

    Night all , see you tomorrow. The last two blogs were great.

  46. HD says:

    For the love of all things holy will someone please answer this question for me, it is driving me crazy! When Luann was meeting with Alex and she said, “You came in with your Herman Munster shoes” and Alex said, “they were Louis Vuitton” and Luann said, “even Louis Vuitton makes mistakes” has that aired? I have not seen that happen and I don’t know if I keep missing it or that happens later. Please tell me! It is driving me crazy! I am going to sit alllllllll day and watch every last episode that has aired but I just need to know if that has been shown.

    • Lavalady says:

      HD – It was driving me crazy too! I just assumed I missed it, but now I don’t think it aired yet. Maybe this week? Also, when did Alex say “Thug in a cocktail dress”? Last week or the week before? I’m still catching up.

      • VAgirl says:

        I haven’t seen either phrase used yet.

      • Debbie says:

        I don’t watch as much this season. I did see part of Sonja’s party and thought Luann said it to Alex referring to shoes she was wearing with her S&M dress. But I could have imagined it as I have seen the preview a number of times.. Out of synch with this season..

    • DJ Loops Fruit says:

      it happened the week after Sonja threw Alex out of her house

      • DJ Loops Fruit says:

        the reason most people dont recall seeing it
        was it wasnt a big long scene it was one of the bumpers before a commercial break

    • vilzvet says:

      Luann is such a beyotch. Nasty as always, but in an oh so polite way. Slams every which way. I sure wouldn’t mind a pair of Louis Vuitton’s!!

    • nathania says:

      that snark by Luann about the shoes pissed me off so much. I wish when Luann said that about LV making mistakes she would have replied so does the Count of Lesseps or something equally nasty. But she’s not as vicious as Luann so something like that is not going to occur to her. Luann is writhing of jealous because Alex can wear those looks and not look ridiculous where as Luann would just look like a linebacker in drag. Plus Alex is getting asked to model and Luann is not going to be an asset to any brand, except something bourgeois-pretentious like Martha Stewart or something.

    Good morning everyone.

    Hey did anyone else hear that Bethenny is getting her own show?


    Sorry if you copy and paste it will work. This was sent out on April 6th so it may have been discussed here before. Maybe that will be the third season of Bethenny ever after. Moving to California.

  52. PJ says:

    I’m not a fan of Barhop and her creepy brother. Ramona was out of order to do what she did at the party, but he could have handled it much better than he did too. He could have simply said now is not the time can we please schedule a time to meet and discuss this. Barhop and creepy brother were so dismissive and haughty.

    • fort lauderdale gay says:

      Countess Squash Blossom High Horse could have given her much better advice on how to handle the situation. She knew how distraught Ramona was during the Mutt March. She should have advised Ramona to write Howie a note which she could have then discreetly given to him or left for him at the party. (note to self: never, ever take Countess SBHH’s advice.)

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        IMO – LuAzz set Ramona up for a public scene that we all know should have been a private conversation.

    • MicheleF. says:

      Okay, I will brace myself for the backlash. The recurring theme of “not the right time” or “not the right place” or “schedule a lunch”, etc. bothers me. I say if someone has an issue with you and wants to talk, take the 3 minutes to try to work it out. If it can’t be done and more discussion is necessary then schedule a lunch or whatever. Just my opinion.

      • klmh says:

        If I wasn’t a hw, the last thing I would want is confrontation in front of a camera, for all to see.

      • error404 says:

        OH ITA! It’s just bs.

        Regarding cigar-gate: anyone who thinks Hairy Howie has any intention of speaking to Ramona at any future time obviously owns valuable beach front property in Kansas. It was a brush off. And please, the whole “don’t you dare have a civil conversation in front of my deaf aged grandpa” is as stupid and insipid as pretty much every word that comes out of the Muff Mogul and her sperm-donating brother’s mouths. Blech.

        • quincyil says:

          I don’t find Cindy funny or interesting. I can’t believe she is the best NYC has to offer as a new housewife.

          • Adgirl says:

            ICAM. NYC has gillions of faded but familiar actresses, singers and models that would be more than happy to prance around on camera telling the Terrible Trio to shove it.

        • PJ says:

          Whether they ever met to discuss it or not wasn’t really the point. I thought the way he brushed Ramona off was mean and creepy. Creepy brother could have handled the situation much better there was no need to push Ramona over the edge like that.

        • nathania says:

          I have to disagree. People that age are sometimes in fragile health with vulnerable tickers and the last thing you want is to have them stroke out on your birthday. My dad is like that, there are some procedures he needs that they can’t even do because of the state of his heart, and he’s much younger. I think had the man not been there it would have been different probably. But they were protecting their dad, there is nothing wrong with that.

  53. Christine says:

    Has anyone else sen JZ’s FB post this morning? Ally is trying to build up her Twitter fans and JZ is warning everyone who is not in love with her that “THEY WILL BE BANNED”. She sounds like Don Caroline Manzo – mess with my family, mess with me. I hope none of us ends up sleeping with the “fishes”….LOL

    • fort lauderdale gay says:

      Wow, I’m glad I have my own scuba gear!

    • I think she makes the same statement every month and it still hasn’t stopped her “haters” from posting negative comments on her page. I’m still “Facebook friends” with Jill. For some strange reason, she hasn’t blocked me yet…….LOL.

      Jill Zarin: Thank you so much for following @allyzarin on twitter. For those who have nothing nice to say and are cruel or disrespectful to me or my fans..you will be BANNED. Why you choose to even Like my page is ridiculous, but you will not be able to “play” with us anymore. Please let me know who I need to BLOCK and I will clean it up in AM.

      • Christine says:

        I am only allowed to view, I cannot comment anymore. Never said anything that bad but I guess I failed to include any references to worshipping and adoring her. I think all that I said is that I know a person in my own life who reminds me of every things she has done for me – that with JZ and this person, my SIL, there is a scorecard and favors are used as trump cards for future repayment.

        • Jill blocked me on Twitter last year because I said that she was jealous of Bethenny because she got her own show. The comments that I posted on her Facebook page were worse and she hasn’t blocked me. I posted about five comments on her Facebook page last year and I said that she was mean, spiteful, and vindictive. Maybe she agrees with me. 🙂

        • quincyil says:

          I signed up for Jill’s tweets and I am quiet so she has not banned me, but if she had someone looking at the names I think I would have my feet in cement and be tossed into the ocean to swim with the fishes.

  54. Lisa in New England has opened up the comment section of her blog again, with Jill’s approval.

    Jillzarin @lisanewengland Happy u opened to comments. Make sure u have to approve them so no foul language.

    I have read the comments on Lisa’s blog and I haven’t seen foul language. When Jill says foul language, she means people who criticize her.She considers negative comments about her to be “foul language”…..LOL.

  55. Jill’s tweets to Lisa are interesting. I still suspect that Jill is giving Lisa an advanced copy of the RHONY DVDs that she gets from Bravo.

    Jillzarin @lisanewengland happy ur blog is up right after ep Why read it 2 days after? Gets stale. I did same thing but now they send DVD wk bef.

    How is Lisa able to post her RHONY blog right after RHONY ends on Thursday nights….Hmm.

    • quincyil says:

      After I watch a show for Lynn and take notes, it generally takes me one hour or more to type them and send to Lynn. I do it at night so she can put her blog together in the morning after she reads tons of email, facebooks, blogs, tweets and articles. I also find great posts on the IHJZ board that I send to Lynn in the early morning from people here. Many times, the research of board members goes into Lynn’s blog.

      Lisa’s blog is just the show and her pro Jill stance which makes her anti Bethenny and anti Alex. Lynn has the shows, but they she takes a lot of information from cyberspace so it would be impossible to put out the blog immmediately after the show.

      When people here have finds and bring them to the board, you know they are read by many people. Everyone here researches and is a part of the IHJZ entity. Lisa and Jill don’t have that even it they are quick to publish.


      • fort lauderdale gay says:

        Lisa’s blog is a huge snoozefest. Thank you for all the hard work that it takes to make this blog happen.

        • Debbie says:

          If you missed it this was posted on Lisa’s blog at the beginning of the year.

          It is not every day that a television celebrity recognizes your work, but Lisa New England could tell you that it still does happen!

          A couple days back, Jill Zarin, a Real Housewife of New York, posted a link to Lisa’s Hub on the show’s finale, pointing out that a lot of hurtful or misinformed things about her are posted online, but that Lisa’s Hub was not among them. The post has since garnered 144 likes on Facebook and Lisa’s Hub has received over 15,000 views from Facebook alone!

          This fun find goes to show that your work can be “discovered” at any point when you write on HubPages – and also that Facebook can be quite the place for your Hubs to be discovered!

          Congratulations to Lisa New England for the celebrity-endorsed Hub 😀

          Way to go!

          • Debbie says:

            additionally, I read this blog yesterday and there was a comment there and I was surprised. Today there are only 2. So, either there’s no traffic or she’s deleting the ones with “foul language”. LOL

          • quincyil says:

            I remember that. At the time, the number of hits was suspisiously similar to Lynn’s hit counter on the right hand side of this page. At first Jill said that Lisa had thousands of hits and later the sum matched Lynn’s counter perfectly.

            There are articles that actually claim that Jill’s own web site gets very few hits. I believe it is in the hundreds. When she does the live shows she gets 33 people and begs for more to come. Then she gets perhaps one hundred.

            Jill believes that her tweet actually can bestow hits on good bloggers. I am sure some people listen to her. I suspect that a lot of her twitter followers are like me in that they are not really fans, but are interested.

            There is a difference in being famous and infamous. I believe Jill Zarin is infamous.

        • quincyil says:

          I think that everyone here helps.

          From the first time that I read Lynn’s blog on the hubs site, I saw that she was gifted and I followed her here with several of the people who post here every day.

          I think the discussion on the board is fascinating and I love sharing with the people here. I look forward to reading your thoughts.

          Years ago, I was on the the orginal Farscape board which allowed the freedom that we had here. It was 5 years of finishing my work and then sitting down to enjoy a web site with cyberfriends. I thought I would never find that again when that was lost.

          What a gift to find Lynn and all of you! I am grateful for this experience.


          • BlueSky_Forever says:

            Thanks for all you do Q, you & Lynn. Lynn’s blog is getting something like 500 posts per blog, & more people who just read it. I’m watching that counter up there on the right ^ I’ve checked that when I refresh the page, the counter does not increase. So those are unique visits to the site – it’s just bananas. Lisa in New England & Jill would be in heaven to get those hits. Remember when Lisa got all those hits, we thought it was because people from Lynn’s blog were checking out Lisa? So now that we don’t go there anymore…Lisa is not getting traffic. The one time I went there I couldn’t get past the first couple of sentences. Lynn Rocks, Lisa just sucks.

  56. WindyCityWondering says:

    Do we have a saavy tech poster who can get to the bottom on @lisanewengland? Jill wants the final say on “someone else’s blog” – that is strange. Why would there be an “Ask Gloria” section unless this was a family blog? Giving copies of the show to anyone other than the housewife on the show sounds like something a Bravo contract would not allow. In the back of my mind, whispers of Amazongate are getting louder.

    • quincyil says:

      Jill claims to be sharing the early DVD of the show with lisa. That is a protected DVD and I really doubt that Jill has the right to share that information with an independent blogger. The other stars are very careful with the information that they share.

      lisanewengland is @gingerzarin We have the evidence that this is true from a twitter conflict and a DM that was sent by lisanewengland to someone.

      lisanewengland site was born right after Jill Zarin begged someone to create an “I Love Jill Zarin” blog. You were here when we slapped Jill Zarin on the bottom when she went to Highland Park for a Charity and stayed in a fancy hotel suite twittering her sister in another fancy hotel suite. We all watched Jill jump up and down on twitter after she read this site.

      Why is Bravo allowing Jill Zarin to give their DVD to lisanewengland? Bravo doesn’t answer the question as Lynn and others have asked them on twitter and in email.

      The bloggers who boycotted RH Miami had requested the early DVD so that is why I think Jill Zarin keeps mentioning it on twitter. She is slapping Lynn on the bottom.

      Jill is obsessed with this website. I enjoy watching her be obsessed then I go and do my yard work and shovel the horse stalls.


    • fort lauderdale gay says:

      add to that mix her exclusive interviews…What is that I hear? The distant sound of drum rolls? Could it be that we will now have bloggate to add to amazongate? Oh, I forgot, Jill has professed to all that she is a changed woman after last year’s disastrous season. Do I buy the new improved Jill? Not so much.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Jill is not very smart if she thinks she can do what she wants – that whole streaming live during episodes, exclusive blog on her site – Bravo remains silent, continues to sanitize her Bravo blog comments and drives people to alternative blogs! Something wicked is coming and Jill will be crying at the center of it!

      • quincyil says:

        Jill usually screws up and gives herself away.

        In Jill’s blog originally called “Hipocrisy,” but changed to “Always Happy,” Jill doesn’t really explain who the hipocrite is. She asks good bloggers to explain this as the good bloggers do it better than Jill according to Jill.

        Right away, lisanewengland pick up the hipocrite gauntlet and runs with it explaining that Simon and Alex are the hipocrites because the forgave Sonja right away, but refuse to forgive Jill for things that happened in season one.

        I read and read Jill’s blog and could not understand what she was talking about, yet lisanewengland immediately understands who the hipocrites are and further explains why Jill’s use of the the word is true.

        There is a Vulcan mind link there. It’s evidence that lisa is Jill or is so close to Jill that her thoughts are Jill’s thoughts.

        We know a lot about Jill Zarin. She has Darren her assistant living in closet off her bedroom and they are very close. I don’t see her as close to other women in the mind link way.

        Darren also is very close to @gingerzarin who is lisanewengland.

        I think Darren might be lisanewengland. It’s just a guess. Jill has someone locked in mind meld and her assistant is close enough to be picking up her vibes and running with them. This would explain why lisanewengland gets the DVD. Darren/lisanewengland watches the show with Jill when the DVD is sent over from Bravo.

        Jill is not violating the contract by letting Darren/lisa watch it.

        I wondered by the name is lisanewengland when it makes you think of Lisa Wexler of CT. Lisa Wexler was in Chicago when Jill freaked over this blog and she may have said she would write something for her sister and then changed her mind about getting involved. She does hold Jill’s hand a lot.

        • quincyil says:

          Here’s another reason that I think Darren might be lisanewengland. Jill is obsessed about the time that lisanewengland publishes her blog.

          We have thousands of people here who wait for Lynn’s blog every day and no one makes the big deal about when it is published.

          Jill is on lisa’s case about the publishing time and has been for weeks. That sounds like a boss telling their employee to get that blog done and on the web site.

          I know Jill Zarin might do that to a friend also, but I have the feeling she is commanding her servant to do his work in a timely fashion.

          • housewifeaddict says:

            Or her sister. This is my theory – with an absolute admitted lack of research or information.

            Lisa the sister set up the blog for her sister under a tremendous amount of pressure. The blog itself is sort of like the Nancy Drew series – written by whoever Jill talks into it at the moment. It could be a fan, it could be the assistant, I doubt it is her sister any more because she is probably bored.

            Whoever writes it is hamstrung by pleasing Jill, so it describes a show none of us recognize, and a Jill we know does not exist. Therefore no one reads it except to go there and make fun of it.

              Jill’s sister was a well known attorney and she had honors in college. Lisa uses “to” and “too” incorrectly. She does not write like Lisa writes in her blog or in comments on her blog.

              Darren has gotten into trouble before when he wrote about filming in Jill’s apartment and it turned out to be about the dog show. Bravo did not like that.

              Darren would have the email addresses to contact the other stars. Those addresses are not out there. Unless a star follows you on twitter, you can’t send them a DM to ask them for an interview.

              Darren has access to Jill’s email and Bravo sites so he could send requests to them.

              There has to be an explanation for how lisanewengland has the contact numbers of these celebrities from Bravo. She’s not on their facebooks asking them for interviews on the pages, she is doing this through email. She said this. Where did she get all of their email addresses from?

              • housewifeaddict says:

                And there has to be a reason they’d agree to be interviews (like a favor to Jill).

                I just think Jill is stupid enough to use her sister’s name in the original blog set up – but I’m sure you’re right that her sister doesn’t write the blogs now.

          • Adgirl says:

            I’m sure lisafakeland is an assistant or friend of an assistant too. “Lisa” probably screens the DVD at Jill’s with her, then writes up Jill’s vision of the show.
            She might be a friend of Ally or Darren.

            • quincyil says:

              Darren was on twitter, but got in trouble last summer. Does anyone know if he still has an account? It would be interesting to do a forensics on his writing style when compared to Lisa’s.

              Lisa says she is nice, but that twitter law with Lynn was ferocious. There were bad words from lisa.

              I wonder if Jill is worried about lisa using bad words on her own site because someone in Jill’s inner circle uses bad words all of the time. I know Jill does, but I bet Darren does also.

      • lovemamaearth says:

    • BlueSky_Forever says:

      Quincy you do good research. Sometimes I go to twitter and do searches – like “catommaney” after WWHL to see what people are tweeting her. I looked at Luanne’s timeline also. It wasn’t scientific, but it seemed like there were fans of Luanne that were mad at Cat, and people tweeting Cat that they loved how she stood up to Luann in about equal numbers. I only checked for about 1 hour. We know twitter has the ability to do very good research. Wouldn’t it be fascinating to know just how many people tweeted pro Luann vs. pro Cat since WWHL? A poll on Lynn’s blog here would not be as broad as using twitter. Maybe we should all have been tweeting asking people to tweet #CatBeatCountess or tweet #CountessBeatCat so informally we would be doing a poll. Then you do a search on #CatBeatCountess to see the tweets & check #CountessBeatCat. People are doing this all the time now, as in #ItsAllJillZarinsFault etc. Just checked, this is from twitter:

      Worldwide · change
      #NFLDraft Promoted

    • BlueSky_Forever says:

      Meant to say Lisa in New whatever’s days are numbered. It’s not a successful blog & never will be. Jill is wasting Bawby’s money on those paid blog/marketing/whatever people.

      Just got gobsmacked! I was looking @ twitter. Checked Jill Zarin’s timeline (just put in jillzarin & search at twitter.com). Ehh not much happening. Then checked Bethenny. OMG. She is getting hundreds of tweets, could be like 400 or 500 per hour. It is amazing. Bethenny tweeted that she can’t watch the movie 127 Hours – hundreds of tweets back about the movie. She asked if people like screw top wine (hmmm marketing research Bethenny style, I like it). Hundreds of tweets back. People are tweeting about the SkinnyGirl margarita, her latest book, etc. etc. Wow. Yes it is fascinating to see someone tweet Jill, and then tweet B. Lol I wouldn’t waste my time tweeting Jill if I was promoting my vet office, my blog, my whatever. Twitter is unbelievable. We should all be tweeting Bethenny about Lynn’s blog. And if you have something to market (your website, your product line whatever) tweet Bethenny & other popular celebs. I think it could increase your web traffic or product sales.

    hey fellow dinosaurs, anyone else remember the pre-Diana days? The press was always shoving “playboy” Charles and “jet-setter” Anne down out throats, with countless stories of the beauty-challeged duo who seems to live atop horses. I though Anne’s wedding gown was hideous and couldn’t understand why such a handsome guy was marrying her. Now that I see her daughters, I thank God he did! Imagine if Charles had been allowed to marry Camilla way back when, the swamp-thing we’d have to watch marrying Kate… Ewwwwww

    • quincyil says:

      Camilla looked good when she was in her early 20s. I never cared about Charles. Can you imagine spending time with him? He talks about energy and how we have to cut back then his son flies his girl friend in a private royal jet to Africa so they can get engaged. Yes, energy conservation is only for the peasants.

    • Kellita says:

      I didn’t watch any of the Royal Wedding, but I’m glad for the recap. Kate looked gorgeous. So did her sister. What was up with the crazy hats from the Royal Family? I hate being mean, but Beatrix’s (sp) looked like a joke; the pink florally-thingie that stuck straight up.

      I think Kate will bring back the stylishness and coolness factor that Diana brought into that family.

      • housewifeaddict says:

        Her had has its own facebook page it was such a joke. Don’t blame the designer – they also did Posh’s hat and it was cute and fashion forward. I think the princesses have the worst taste I’ve ever seen. They must not have mirrors in their palace.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      I remember the Randy Andy days fondly as well, with his obsession for Koo Starks I believe. And the Andy settles for Fergie – who was about as bad a match as someone could make. Then the quiet youngest son actually may have been the only one to marry someone he cared for.

      I’ve read quite a few good things about Charles and his promotion of sustainability – agriculture and energy.


      • error404 says:

        that’s good. Chuck is an intellectual who loves theory but has no business getting anywhere near policy IMO. Based on his high-fallutin ideas about Architecture, which are as stupid as they are passionate, I’d assumed all of this ideals would similarly set the world back 100 years. LOL Glad to know he might have some actual ideas that aren’t outdated intellectual persuits with no practical applicability whatsoever.

    • Adgirl says:

      I remember when Charles said he talks to his herbaceous garden or something. And he gave a lot of plodding speeches about how post WWII architecture is ruining England.

  58. housewifeaddict says:

    I’m not sure if this has been posted yet or not, but it looks like Atlanta is filming, with both NeNe and Kim, but they refuse to film together. And both may be getting spin offs???


    NeNe I can actually see – watching her try to break into a new life in Hollywood could be interesting. As long as we see the funny, snarky NeNe, and not the drunk, mean NeNe I’d tune in.

    Kim – OMGosh NO WAY. Kroy can’t string 2 words together, and just because she was a one hit wonder (thanks to Kandi) doesn’t mean she could carry an entire show. That would be the end of spin offs.

    • Adgirl says:

      NeNe I would watch if she were talented at anything other than screaming at people. What else does she do well?

      • housewifeaddict says:

        I think she’s funny with the one-liners. The thing she’s best at is talking – so maybe filler on a talk show? She makes the Atlanta HW franchise watchable (even though Kandi is my favorite – NeNe is entertaining unless she’s drunk and mean)

      • Okie Folkie says:

        Neither of them should get a show, IMO.

        Although, Kandi, on the other hand, I would watch if she got a show. Maybe she could get some real ‘talent’ to at least appear with her.

        I would not watch NeNe or Kim.

    • lovemamaearth says:

      No way for either one. Nene the bully doesn’t need more face time. Ugh.

  59. Toga says:

    I was completely repulsed at Cindy’s party when Kelly was talking about her own party in front of Ramona. Wasn’t the Discountess sitting there too, and wouldn’t it be classless to talk about a party that someone isn’t invited to in front of them??? She’s such a freakin’ phony!!!! And Kelly had said “even if you don’t like someone you need to be polite.” That’s no where near “polite” where I come from.

    • quincyil says:

      That was Cindy’s blunder and she said she was sorry in the conversation. Cindy assumed that all of the housewives had been invited. I’m glad Ramona called them out on it. Kelly tried to make it OK for Cindy, but she got caught trying not to film with another housewife.

      Kelly is playing hard ball this season.

    • Austin says:

      I agree that that was very classless, and if Kelly didn’t know better (which wouldn’t be all that surprising), certainly the countless should have clued her in.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      Do you watch Tyra’s top model? Every season there is an episode with “go sees”, and half the girls get lost. I can see Kelly in that episode wandering the streets of some foreign city looking completely lost.

      The apprentice not so much – no offence to LaToya – but she’d be worse than her. At least LaToya has the excuse of not ever having had to do anything for herself her entire life – like cook or balance a budget.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Maybe a steady stream of the question: Why does one (unknown) blog have access to advanced copies of the show when legitimate bloggers with posting numbers in the millions do not? Tweet, facebook, etc – all communication channels with the same exact question.

        • lovemamaearth says:

          Because Jill has lawyers to bully TPTB.

          It sounds like Cindy sent invites to her business so often that they started putting her invitations in spam. lol

          Lu is overly sensitive about “weekend mom” because she probably knows that she isn’t spending enough time with her kids. That skateboard thing is a joke.

          I think they’d all really be happier to have to nasty comments said in TH segments rather than in person.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      I’d sign up for an account and tweet along, but I just read Really Old Housewives latest blog, and the tweeting world seems mighty scary and crazy to me.

      I don’t think tweets will make a difference. Someone would have to prove Jill’s giving advance DVDs to LisaNewEngland.

  64. California35 says:

    Hiiiiii ! 🙂

    how is everyone today?

    you guys are probably done talking about this…
    I think Luann doesn’t mind what Kelly says because she doesn’t take her seriously at all. She might not even hear what Kelly says. Ramona says things that matter and that make Luann look bad…she mind that.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      Yes I agree. I doubt she cares what Kelly says, because everyone knows Kelly says silly things.

      Although I like Ramona a lot, coming up to someone and interrogating them about their parenting skills is rude. In Alex’s blog she says “When someone says on television that they are concerned for you or your children, they are rarely truly concerned with anything other than gossip.” My guess is she was referencing Cindy and Kelly, but the same could apply for Ramona’s conversation with LuAnn. It was as rude as Jill and LuAnn commenting on Alex’s kids climbing the guy’s leg.

      The only difference is I really dislike LuAnn, so I chuckled through the whole thing. And we all know that Victoria is rumored to be a wild child and could use some supervision, while Alex’s kids are just active little boys.

      • California35 says:

        yeah, well Ramona just speaks her mind, doesn’t she. I agree also on the fact that it was rude, specially in her house…like Luann says. I would not say anything to someone specially in her house about their children or parenting, but I am not Ramona lol and as you said we dislike Luann, so we say go Ramona! 🙂
        Luann does it to everyone and that is why I didn’t see Ramona as rude as if she had done it to someone we like.

    • Adgirl says:

      Why bother confronting or correcting Kelly?
      She will deny she ever said the-thing-she-already-forgot-she-really-said, and then get sad and upset at you. There is no winning with Kelly.

      Everyone else you can engage them in an argument and win or lose.

  65. BlueEyedGirl says:

    In Jill’s blog on Bravotv she says:
    “My philosophy is that you can’t have zero tolerance for people. I am happy to see Alex has learned that too, and forgives Sonja — or at least let’s things slide. Life it too short to hold grudges.”
    I don’t know about anyone else but I laughed so hard when I read that! She has learned to do a super death vice grip onto even the slightest grudge!

    Is anyone else completely disgusted that this woman is also selling those hats from the CA auction for more than she paid for “charity” and the “charity” is her daughter’s college fund? Because she needs help paying for that since no one else needs food or anything else.. Clearly that’s what people should be spending money on a charity for..

  66. Betfan2 says:

    Hey Everyone I haven’t been on here for a while, but I’ve been lurking since the beginning. Congats! on your one year Lynn. Just wanted to make a comment about Luman. I’m so happy that Cat told her like it is. Like how we all see her. Her comeback was “you don’t know me” But we do Luman, we’ve all seen you from the beginning. I never liked her from season 1. Didn’t like Jill either from way back them.

    Hey everyone keep blogging and keep commenting, I really enjoy your opinions.

    • California35 says:

      welcome 🙂

      I just saw part two of the after show, and LOVED that Cat told Luann off. Luann had no come back, and she finally just shut up. She acted like shutting up was because she was the better person. ugh!

    • Adgirl says:

      Welcome Betfan2!

  67. fort lauderdale gay says:

    After her public evisceration and introduction into the British fine art of being drawn and quartered by Cat, I imagine Countess Squash Blossom High Horse was thrilled to return to her kennel in the Hamptons. I wonder what she will bark out to her adoring fans, once she has finished licking her wounded ego? I genuinely feel sorry for the kids this weekend.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      I’ve never seen guests go after each other like that before. There have been a lot of fights – like when NeNe was on and Kim called in to scream at her – or when Cristy was on and Leah called in to scream at her – but other than being her pompous self, LuAnn didn’t really do anything to Cat. I just wish Cat had done it with a little more grace and snark. It was uncomfortable to watch.

      • fort lauderdale gay says:

        granted, it was done a little on the “Lizzy Bordan” style, but after years of watching her “my poo doesn’t stink” attitude, I feel it was way over due and fully deserved. I’m happy that it happened. Sometimes you have to “hit ’em with a 2×4” to get their attention.

        • housewifeaddict says:

          I want to amend my opinion. What happened on the after show was classic – and LuAnn deserved every minute of it. I wish we had seen that on the live TV part.

    • fort lauderdale gay says:

      Maybe she could add an Elizabethan collar to her jewelry collection, so the wounds can air dry?

  68. WindyCityWondering says:

    Ramona nailed LuAnn – weekend mom at best! And it would not matter if it was in a box with a fox – nailed her. LuAnn see them all as beneath her so anything they say will be offensive to her.

    • California35 says:

      Correct! No one can question her about anything,,, yet she more than authorized to question everyone else… she has her own views and expects everyone to behave a certain way.

  69. California35 says:

    OT – I am so excited! I got my tax return – first one in THREE years!!! I wasn’t sure if I would get it even this time…. but shhh I want to pretend I don’t have this money so I can save it 🙂

  70. quincyil says:

    Luann is giving interviews with advice about how to marry a royal. I wonder if Kelly, Sonja, and Luann thought that their serial divorcee husbands would remain in the marriage with them because they had children.

    If you are the third or fourth wife, you might guess that this man is not a person who will not make it to the “till death do we part” moment.

    They were attractive women and they gave the best years of their lives to those marriages. I don’t think Luann or Sonja got a lot of money in the divorce because both were dealing with family money where there are a lot of trusts and assessts that are passed down from generation to generation through blood lines, not marriage.

    Camille Grammer married someone making money and was probably better off after the divorce than Sonja nad Luann. Kelly’s husband seemed to be making money durin her few years of marriage, but she was married for a very short time.

    It’s very expensive to live their lives. I really don’t think they make the income to support the lifestyles that they have. Someday, the child support payments will dry up and they like, Kim Richards, will be hoping to find another man to help them out in their old age.

    • fort lauderdale gay says:

      I think you are right. Most of the housewives are like so many Americans….about two paychecks away from being homeless. We’ve certainly seen that play out in OC.

    • nathania says:

      it’s stunning to me that Luann was the counts 4th wife and the man was 42 YEARS OLD. Wow. He was busy. It’s different to take a fourth wife at say, 60 or 70, though even then it’s a lot. But 42? That’s a wife every five years or so after leaving home. Wonder how many kids he has and how much he pays to support them and his other ex wives? The fees must be enormous. I am thinking in the case of a man like that, polygamy might should be legal. At least they would all be under one roof, theoretically, and it would definitely be cheaper.

  71. housewifeaddict says:

    Yuck LuAnn. Tips to marry a royal!


    So is a count royalty? I think they are nobility, not royalty. A pretty big difference. You can have royal blood without a title, and vise versa.

    LuAnn needs to go away!!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      LuAnn’s ignorance really shows on the important stuff – royalty/nobility – and she uses being offended to deflect it.

    • Kukulet says:

      You’re right – a count is nobility, not royalty. And in some cases, a prince is not royalty. For example, the “royal family” of Monaco are not royalty, they are princely. They are addressed as “Serene Highness”, not “Royal Highness”. (With the exception of Princess Caroline, who is a Royal Highness by virtue of her marriage to a Prince of Hanover.)

      LuAnn’s tips are ridiculous. In order to marry a prince, one should “travel to Europe”? Well, no duh, LuAnn. In case you missed it, the USA is a republic. Not a lot of princes around. It probably would help to actually live in Europe, so one wouldn’t have to fly back and forth every time Princey called up for a date.

      She also says that men from Europe appreciate women who are “quick and knowledgeable”. Here’s a newsflash, LuAnn – not all American men are Neanderthal couch potatoes. They like smart, savvy women, too.

      Women should also “carry themselves like royalty”. In other words, walk like LuAnn with your nose in the air and you’ll land a fake royal like she did in no time.

  72. housewifeaddict says:

    I’ve been a little hard on Cat because of the live part of WWHL, but I just watched the after show:


    and I take it all back. She was fine and holding her tongue until LuAnn started to put down Alex, and then she called her out for her BS.

    GO CAT!!!!! LuAnn was truly insufferable.

    • fort lauderdale gay says:

      I feel compassion toward Alex and Simon. They’ve had to endure so much “we’re better than you are”. Remember when Jill went to the Brooklyn fashion event and trash talked everything and said basically “the Countess wouldn’t be caught dead here”.

    • California35 says:

      Yeah, she probably had had enough of her superior attitude.

  73. I think Jill stopped by the blog today. Hi Jill *waving* LOL

    • quincyil says:

      Jill’s friend left a trail of breadcrumbs in the forest. I followed the trail, recorded everything and sent it to Lynn and Harvey for further study.

      I have to thank you for giving me the name and twitter account of Jill’s assistant, Darren.

      Jill, have fun jumping on twitter.


      • Your welcome Quincy. I follow Darren on Twitter and I am surprised he hasn’t tweeted from that account since August. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if he was Lisa In New England.

  74. ihearttalavera says:

    Did anyone else think the conversation between Sonia and Cindy at Luann’s house was hysterical? It really is true that Sonia is like a bird and they can’t seem to get a word in when speaking with her. Cindy is incredibly abrasive, however, and I believe she belongs on RHNJ (along with Jill Zarin).

    As far as the blondes vs. brunettes theme, I think it would be more correct to label it Bethenny lovers vs. Bethenny haters. I think Kelly’s hatred of Ramona stems from Ramona’s close relationship with Bethenny. I also noticed how visibly tense Kelly when Alex (also close with Bethenny) came near her at Luann’s. Very hysterical that Ramona doesn’t even notice Kelly is upset.

    Sparkles… No, you are not alone. I have the exact same opinion of Cat. I think she is completely obnoxious and acted like a spoiled child on WWHL because she was embarrassed that she didn’t know answers to Andy’s questions. I also hated the way she started to ask a question, then stopped, then in the after show when it was brought up again said it didn’t matter now because it would only be on the internet. Andy was clearly annoyed with her. I think she’s a mean, vile woman. I also think she’s a liar. She was so obnoxious on RHWDC about her husband’s position as White House photographer. I have watched two different specials on White House photographers (and their assistants) and her husband was never mentioned once. I don’t like her at all, but I do agree with Lynn that she would make an excellent addition to RHWNY and I love that she called Luann out on WWHL. Although I do think Luann came out looking better than Cat for not engaging.

    I’m so sorry for the late post and that I missed the Royal Wedding chat even though I was up. I guess I was too tired to remember to log on, but so worth the early wake-up to see the amazing Royal wedding live. Anyway, thanks Lynn for another wonderful blog, and have a great week!

    • Adgirl says:

      I believe Cat’s husband was a photographer for Newsweek that was assigned to the WH beat, not one of the photographers that was employed by the WH.

      Anyway he quit during their marriage because Cat’s actions on RH was an embarrassment to his career. Wasn’t Cat actually disinvited from the Xmas party?
      It seems that RH cast members & family better be self employed because there is bound to be professional blow back. Maybe that’s why we never found out exactly what/where Jason Hoppy worked.

    Did anyone see Nene co-hosting with Perez Hilton on WE TV?

    I specifically made note to watch it. While Perez is definitely no Oprah, but was infinitely better than Nene. She basically repeated the same phrases over and over – I love it – it’s fabulous – it’s great. She was pathetic and if she were go get her own gig as a talk show host, it wouldn’t last long.

    I really think she’s borrowing someone else’s 15 minutes now.

    Hi Lynn – There was discussion on FB not to long ago about Kelly. Something doesn’t seem right about her returning this season. Wonder if she told Bravo she wouldn’t return unless the other women stop picking on her (of course we all know they weren’t but in Kelly’s mind . . . ) and also she wanted Bravo to edit her being more “normal”. Otherwise it doesn’t make sense. The past few season all of the women had problems with Kelly and let it be known. All of a sudden there is “nothing wrong with Kelly, she is fine” making it SEEM like all of her problems were caused by Bethenny. All I know is if I went on National TV (like Kelly did for last seasons reunion) and LIED about my employer (Kelly said Bravo MADE her go to scary island & the producers had to have a sit down with Bethenny telling her to lay off Kelly) I would be fired.

    I don’t know if anyone knows or not but I was wondering, if Diana was still alive, would she have been allowed to attend the wedding? Diana’s mother couldn’t attend her wedding because she was divorced from her dad. Fergie was also not allowed. Does anyone know?

    Diana would certainly have been allowed to attend her son’s wedding. And Diana’s mother was at Diana’s wedding to Prince Charles, and sat with the Spencers at the high altar.

    Sarah Ferguson was not invited to William’s wedding, but Sarah hasn’t been invited to any royal functions in many years. No offense intended to anyone, but Sarah’s an embarrassment – and attempting to sell access to Prince Andrew pretty much took care of any future royal invites for her.

    I’ve no patience with Sarah. She’s been given numerous chances to rehabilitate herself, and she just keeps screwing up. It was one thing when she was young and reckless, but she’s over 50 now. She should never have left Andrew in the first place. She was set for life: he adored her and if she had used her common sense (if she has any), they could have worked it out. Foolish woman.

    I read that Diana’s close friends did not get invitations too. If someone was unkind to Camille, they were not invited.

    That depends on what you mean by “close friends”. Diana’s friendships were much like a revolving door, so it’s difficult to say who would count as a “close friend”. That said, though, her former flatmates, some longtime childhood friends, and several of her ladies in waiting who had supported her throughout her public life were on the guest list to William’s wedding. Of course, most of those women are discreet and wouldn’t have openly criticized Camilla anyway.
