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…..
