I Hate Jill Zarin An EXCLUSIVE Interview with Cat Ommanney

I Hate Jill Zarin  An Exclusive Interview With Cat Ommanney

Catherine Ommanney

A few months ago I was lucky enough to interview Cat Ommanney for my Reality Buzz show, I hung onto her email address for just this reason..We all watched last Thursday and on Bravo’s after show Watch What Happens Live as Cat appeared with Andy and Luann deLesseps the Fake Countess!  It was clear to viewers that the two women were not fans of one another but what was going on?  What prompted Cat to call Luann out the way she did?  I loved it but I wanted to know more so I asked Cat if she would be willing to answer a few questions about it, here’s what she had to say:

–  How did it work out that you were on Watch What Happens Live?  What made them think Luann would be good for a British Royal Wedding episode?  

CAT:  I’m sure that Bravo wanted to have a bit of royal connection for the show, but why Luanne, who isn’t even a Brit, rather than my fabulous fellow Lisa VP, I’m not sure?  I have meet Harry several times and have many friends in common.  Luann I would imagine was there for her ‘desire’ to be considered royal.  And of course she has spent 16 years looking for her ladder. (btw the comment she made about Alex on her show, (whether a fan or not of) climbing up the social ladder I found absolutley sickening. Almost more offensive than seeeing someone urinate in the street. Does she not understand that people with class NEVER talk about it??? Why hasn’t anyone checked out to see that the ‘Countess’ isn’t a Countess btw?

 –  Did you know Luann deLesseps or had you watched The Real Housewives of New York before appearing on last weeks WWHL?

CAT:  Yes, I have watched it prior but having been in Barbados for several weeks, I had to do watch a few episodes to catch up.  Quite obviously she was always trying too hard with the “Darling” this and “the Countess does not drink from a bottle” rubbish.  (Bowl please) Now it is a systematic ping pong with her.  She will pop over here “darling, darling” and follow along with the snide remarks followed by tossing her head back laughing then pong over to that person and be offended by the antics she had been a part of over on ping’s side.  Like I said, she is incredibly two faced, not to mention extremely irriatating how she keeps speaking french in the middle of an English sentence? Wierd….Am I supposed to be impressed? So I started talking Spanish, just to bug her! 

 

–  Where there introductions and discussions before the cameras rolled?   Is she as condesending in person as we see on TV? 

CAT:  Far more so. She burst into my dressing room telling me how crap our show was and that ” Ohh we haven’t met, have we??” No we haven’t.I remember people I meet..

 

– We watch week after week as Luann is Passive Aggressive with her cast mates, did you see any of that behavior from her?

CAT:  I wonder if there was not a word out of her mouth that was not a passive aggressive quip at someone.  She made comments about her cast mates, me, Giggy and even the royal couple in her “Oh darling” attacks. I think she might be one of those people that is quite miserable if she is not attempting to make herself feel more important by putting down others. Yes, I am rude but I don’t back stab nor do I pretend to be someone I’m not. Life is too short.

  

Luann de Lesseps

–  Luann made a nasty comment about you “Not” being on the same show as she is on, did you call her out on that after the cameras stopped filming?

CAT:  No I just left the studio……Toxic energy sucked me dry.

 

–  What was Andy Cohen’s reaction to the show?

CAT:  “That was something else!” ……Yep…sure was.

 

– What was said during commercial break

CAT:“Get me out of here???” “I’m not enjoying this??” “Who is this phony anyway?” 

 

–  Many viewers were appauled when Luann had the nerve to say that Prince Harry was too young for you, isn’t her boyfriend several years younger than she is?

CAT:  In the episode at the house for the cancer patient families, she was very upset that Ramona pointed out she was married to a man twice her age.  Perhaps if she re-watches that she might realize how ridiculous her indignity about my age for a kiss really was. I mean seriously?? Who cares?

 –  You said on Facebook that you never want to see her again, was it really that bad? 

CAT:  AB-so-bloddy-lutely

 –  What else did she say to make you angry? 

CAT:  Simply the fact I can’t do phonies. The older I get the less tolerant I am for BS and she is without a doubt, manners, etiqutete bla bla bla truly full of ****.  I am very able to say what I think, ( just not so well after 4 hours sleep, a long flight, not enough food and a couple of glasses of wine!) I did not need her attempting to speak for me, or playing some bollocks game of royalty dress up where she believed she was the Queen!

 

–  Have you heard from any other Housewives cast members since the show aired?  (with support or otherwise?)

CAT:  Yes of course..I keep in close contact with Lynda all the time, Mary, Paul and heard from Alex (nyhw) who loved my take on the Countless too…Michelle sent me a “Love you” message” ( oh no sorry that was someone else)

 

–  You said on Facebook that you had other meetings with Bravo after the WWHL taping, are you still in talks with them about a show?  Is there anything you can tell us about any future projects? 

CAT:  Yes we are talking about things…Lots going on…lots of decisions to make soon….we’ll see, but Inbox full part 2 is the top of my priority to finish. Maybe because its healing to do and also so many fans are waiting to read it after part 1..

Thank you to Cat Ommanney for this exclusive interview, interesting backstage information from her WWHL appearance as well as a little hint that Cat isn’t finished with her Bravo connection

  2. Elizabeth says:

    I have read your blog but have never commented before. So glad to read this interview! LuAnn is rude and mean-spirited….so full of herself and so delusional about her place in society and what people really think of her. Cat’s abrasiveness took some getting used to on RHDC, but loved it when she took phony LuAnn on! They need to put her on RHNY…..It is as dull as it can be without Bethenny. Her comic relief made it interesting….now we are just left with nasty women trying to “out-nasty” each other.

    • quincyil says:

      Welcome, I hope you post often.

      Q

      • Vesper says:

        Totally agree with everything Elizabeth said! Bethenny was sooo right about LuAnn…she is a snake.

        Cat has totally grown on me, thanks for that great interview Lynn, I’m so glad she knows we agree with her. I was disappointed in Andy taking LuAnn’s side. He’ll never admit to it, but he clearly was annoyed with Cat’s attitude toward the stupid game and LuAnn’s insufferable pretentiousness.

    • AZ Girl says:

      Welcome!

  3. Great snag of an interivew Lynn! I need to jump on my new twitter friendship with Sonja now but I think after tonight she may go into hididng.. It appears her behavior is X10 from last week! In the previews you can see her imitating/ Role playing with Kelly and she is Ramona and making fun of her need to guzzle the vino.. Rut Ro Sonja.. girl.. you is in danga! http://tvtime101.com/2011/05/05/real-housewives-of-new-york-preview-follow-pecking-orders/

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Do you think Sonja is trying to play all sides? Ramona is really getting hammered from everyone – what’s up with that?

      • Sonja is totally playing all sides. Its really going to come back to bite her in the ass. She forgets we are going to watch and call her out. Ramona is always forgiving thou.. I love how the preview on tv starts with Jill saying how she is back from Australia and needed to reflect then goes right to this preview of her jumping on the bandwagon to bash Ramona.. I really like Ramona and I think she is an acquired taste. You cant be a hypocrit around Ramona.. you wont get away with it. lol

        • Zoey says:

          Speaking of Sonja’s ass, looks like we’ll be seeing perhaps MORE of it than we care to… First the sexy costume or whatever with the calendar guys, then on the previews of upcoming episodes she’s lettin’ it all hang out!

          • Zoey.. makes me think was Sonja a hostess of a restaurant before she met her husband or a call girl at the front of a fancy restaurant? WTH?

      • fort lauderdale gay says:

        I think they’re jealous over her Ramona pino grigio. That, like Bethenny’s skinny girl has a great potential to be a real money maker. A lot more than LuAnn’s horrid songs (and I use the word song loosely) or Jill’s Skweeze ware and bedding line. I wonder how long it will be before Ramona is buying up Jill’s schmattas for cheap and selling them off to discounters….After all, that has been one of Ramona’s real areas of expertise.

    • quincyil says:

      Whew… that’s not good for Sonja or Ramona.

      Sonja seems to think they will edit her so she looks good. Does she watch the Bravo shows?

      • Its inneresting quincyil Sonja is somehow not really on twitter tonight.. I think she prepared for the backlash. I do have some thought about it thou.. I am reserving them for later! 😉 I still havent finished watching the show since mr man came home and it was dinner now dessert.. and survivor.. ugh…

  4. lillybee says:

    The picture posted of Luann seems to show her true colors.

  5. Az says:

    I find Luann amusing and inconsequential. That about sums up how important she is. I think that Cat is a c**t. I’m sorry to use that word but I really cannot find another way to describe her. I find her beyond offensive. She is rude, overbearing and has a huge chip on her shoulder. I cannot imagine anyone wanting to read anything this creature writes, much less wanting to watch her on TV.

    • christie says:

      I think you and I are in the minority regarding Cat but I thought she was rude and classless on WWHL. No matter how people feel about Luann, Cat crossed the line on that show.

      • Okie Folkie says:

        I thought Cat was amazing on WWHL. Luman needs to be put in her place, and since Beth is gone Cat was willing to do it for us.

        • Az says:

          Bish, plz. I can tell you the exact moment that Cat got her knockers in a twist: the minute she claimed to be 7 or 8 years older than Hot Harry and both Luann AND ANDY COHEN HIMSELF laughed in her face. As well they should have. 7 or 8 DOG YEARS older, maybe. Bitch got in a snit and stayed that way. Really? You think someone needs to put Luann in her place? She does that herself every time she opens her mouth. And the whole Lumann thing is ridiculous. Stick to hating Jill Zarin… Lord knows she deserves it and at least you’re good at it.

          And now I’m off to twitter to spew vitriol against Jill Zarun and her lies. She hasn’t changed one bit. She is still a vicious, delusional, pathetic hag. I wish I had been a fly on the wall the day she found out about Bethenny’s $120 million dollar Skinnygirl deal. It’s called KARMA, Jill Zarin. Good people who work hard like Bethenny get good things and horrible excuses for human beings like Jill Zarin get jacksh**. Because that’s all Jill Zarin deserves.

          • Okie Folkie says:

            I have tried to respond to your hate filled spew & drivvel, but, I taking a break from you!

            Your very 1st word to ME was “BISH”, we all know that IS BITCH, & that IS WHEN I STOPPED READING anything you said…

            • nathania says:

              yeah, that was too much.

              I think a while back someone said ‘we come here to hate housewives, not each other’.

              It is hard not to respond sometimes but no one would blame you for ignoring that, it was beyond the pale.

          • firepainter says:

            Ladies please! This is like saying Stalin is better than Hiltler. They are both vile in their own way. I think that folks just enjoyed seeing Luann finally being called out on her crap, and they didn’t care how it was done.

            • kit9 says:

              What crap, exactly? Cat wasn’t calling anything on anyone, she was just tossing out generalizations. She couldn’t come up with a single example to back up what she was saying. And saying. And saying. How many times did she repeat herself? She was like a demented wind up doll, if wind up dolls could get drunk. And, which housewife doesn’t talk crap in the TH? NONE. My fav, Bethenny, did it more than anyone.

              • nathania says:

                that Luann is a two faced shit stirrer who pretends to be above the fray while actually she is the one flushing the toilet just so she can watch the swirl.

                Cat pointed this out very succinctly.

                • kit9 says:

                  The only thing Cat did was show what an insufferable classist anti American snob she is. What got her so pissed was she was enraged that the silly game was set up so Cat had to answer questions from Luann, a lowly American! How dare she! So she acted like a petulant child. THAT’S what her idiotic drunken tirade was really about. And, Again, Luann generally goes face to face with her gripes…she isn’t two faced-if she’s pissed she get it on with the person.

          • lovemamaearth says:

            ==knockers in a twist: the minute she claimed to be 7 or 8 years older than Hot Harry and both Luann AND ANDY COHEN HIMSELF laughed in her face. As well they should have. 7 or 8 DOG YEARS older, …Jill Zarun and her lies. She hasn’t changed one bit. She is still a vicious, delusional, pathetic==

            ROFL Well that part’s true.

          • Susie says:

            IA about Cat. I thought she was saying all that just to make a scene. She probably has her own agenda. Regardless, I agreed with what was said about Luann.

        • kit9 says:

          Cat was a complete idiot on WWHL and she’s so completely full of it. Luann is many things but a phony she is not-if she has a problem with someone she generally gets in their face and says so. She’s a freaking snob but so is Cat. And, at least Luann isn’t completely humorless like that clenched jawed marbled mouth British bitch.

          • kotagirl29 says:

            I’m sorry but LuMann is the “Countess of Phony” dahhhling. What is more phony than complimenting someone to their face and then ripping them behind their back?

            • kit9 says:

              EXAMPLES. IF you’re talking minor gripes-ALL the women do that! Make snarks behind the back in the TH. They ALL do that but when Luann has a beef-she confronts the person and she’s done it over and over and over.

          • nathania says:

            (sound of screeching brakes)

            um, what?

            Luann de Lesseps is…wait for it…not a phony????

            I am pretty sure her picture is in the dictionary next to the word “phony”.

            Hell, I’m not even sure she denies being a phony.

            • kit9 says:

              Are you saying she’s not really a countess? If so, give proof. What the hell phoniness are you talking about? Are you thinking of SNOB because THAT is what she is. Jesus, phony is presenting yourself one way when you really are another. HOW does that apply to Luann. Jesus, she’s ALWAYS making digs if she disproves of something, it’s one of her many faults….’my darling, do you think those shoes are appropriate?” That is the opposite of phony. Luann always let’s it be known, for the most part what she really thinks.

              • JackholeDiary says:

                There is proof the whole Count scam of the de Lesseps has been uncovered. Lynn was sent the proofs was supposed to be posted.

          • cdnfillie58 says:

            huh????..we talking about Luman Luanne from RHNYC??????

            • kit9 says:

              I hear lots of screeching but NO examples. When Luann was pissed at Bethenny she got in her face and confronted her. When she was pissed at Ramona, she didn’t pretend like it didn’t piss her off, she got in her face and had it out. When Luann was pissed at Alex over the dumb ‘message’ thing, she took her aside and told her so. And, AGAIN, what housewife doesn’t talk more crap in the TH? THEY all do it. Eagerly await examples of phoniness. Luann is an insufferable snob-attack her for that…but she is one who is good-certainly better than most-about going face to face. Stop screeching and give examples.

              • yayamagic says:

                I won’t screech.

                LuAnn has made digs at Ramona at almost every lunch and interview she’s had this season. She’s done the same to Alex. On WWHL, Luann made the claim – one I’ve heard ad nauseum – that Alex is a social climber. I haven’t seen her do that to her face. Is it because that is an attack which she cannot deflect from herself? I think so.

                She has super thin skin, demanding apologies and explanations at every turn. Mario, Ramona, even Bethenny when she announced her engagement had to have Cruella de Countess in her face about some slight or other.

                LuAnn should NOT have been the Alex Trebek of Andy Cohen’s royalty quiz. She is NOT the arbiter of all things royal. She should not ever ever talk about a woman’s age, darling, not on national tv, not when you’re supposed to be the countess with class.

      • Anne says:

        Of course Cat is offensive. She isn’t 6 or 7 years older than Harry, but 13. She doesn’t have friends in common she is a social climber. Her ex-ex-hubby and current ex-hubby. Very offensive to ex-hubby’s profession and position as a white house photographer and to all concerned. Plus I find her scary looking. If I didn’t know her real age I would think she was well into her late 50s. Very ugly and I doubt many men would want her, if not for other talents in other areas.

    • Emily H. says:

      I concure!

  6. Mookies1mom says:

    Lynn, Congrat.s on the interview with Cat. It was awesome! Glad you got some inside scoop!

  7. Okie Folkie says:

    We need some Cat In NYC! She’s smart, funny, witty,, snarky and in yer face!

    • yayamagic says:

      Hear hear!

      Cat + NY + another situation when she can confront the Countess = GOLD

  8. aintinice says:

    Bethenny’s twitter followers is just under 300 to make her 500,000 mark, go Bethenny.

    • kotagirl29 says:

      Bethenny is 199 away as of five minutes ago. I think she will make it.

    • quincyil says:

      Wow, in one day she almost made her goal. Impressive.

    • Nancy says:

      This is no doubt a stupid question but what happens if Bethenny meets her goal? Needless to say I don’t twitter.

      • quincyil says:

        Nothing. She wanted to reach 500,000 as a challenge. Something fun to do.

        I am already her follower. I think she is funny and her posts have information about her web site at times.

        I follow Jill. I also like to watch penguins in the Chicago Acquarium.

        • Nancy says:

          Q,
          You are funny. Has your husband heard the duet between Susan Boyle and Jackie (The Prayer)?

  9. Happymouth says:

    So, looks like Lisanewengland and her friends read this blog:
    lisanewengland Lisa New England
    @ @Candlest Not surprised, she has a history I hear. Sending you a DM now
    1 hour ago »
    lisanewengland Lisa New England
    @ @Candlest She backed out and did an interview with the I hate JZ blog instead. Prefers hate I guess. My blog is I Love, she choose I hate

    • quincyil says:

      or….she was told that lisanewengland is the sole property of Jill Zarin, who wrote the note that claimed poor Luanne was slayed by Cat O.

      • fort lauderdale gay says:

        Empress Quincy, I think along the same lines you do….a lot. Love Ya!

        • quincyil says:

          Gee, Empress is more impressive the the wife of a grandson of a minor Princess of Afghanistan.

          Did you know that wealthy businessmen in the Middle East could buy a princess for a wife? It’s true.

          I think Birjand is much nicer than Kabul, but I am biased.

          • fort lauderdale gay says:

            ROFL…..well, if you get hauled on the carpet later for a fake title, 1) It should be a great title and 2) Blame it on me. I’m getting better at evisceration…..

            • quincyil says:

              When you have 4 wives and some come and go, you get a lot of princesses that need homes.

              Sometimes, you pay a lot of money and she is not very good looking under the chadori.

      • codystl says:

        Isn’t it interesting that there is no photo of “Lisa” on her blog or twitter page? It must be Darrin or whoever works for Jill and family…

    • fort lauderdale gay says:

      Maybe she found out who Lisa New England really is?

      • quincyil says:

        That would have been an interesting question. Did lisanewengland tell you who he really is when he asked for the interview? Hmmmmm

    • Happymouth says:

      lisanewengland Lisa New England
      Not to worry @catommanney I prefer interviews with people who still have shows on TV. You stick to those hate blog interviews! LOL
      7 hours ago in reply to ↑

      @Candlest
      Candy @lisanewengland what happened? I thought cat agreed to a blog interview with you? what happened?

    • housewifeaddict says:

      Good find. I would have been shocked if Cat had done the interview with LisaNewEngland – especially after Lisa asked her why she went after LuAnn. She was crazy to think that no one would tip Cat off that she was linked to Jill Zarin.

      As far as this being a hate blog I have a different opinion …

      – Lisa has the passive aggressive blog that takes digs at the housewives Jill doesn’t like. Lynn’s blog is like Cat or Bethenny – she calls it like she sees it.

      • quincyil says:

        I think that is true. Lynn also changes her opinions of people at times based on their behavior.

        Tonight, I will see another 3 plus minute video of Simon van Kempen and family. Lynn gave me that gig. She thinks that I have a tendency to see the good in every one and then she laughs. She never actually says, “Pollyanna.”

        I do see the world through rose colored glasses. Lisanewengland should ask me to guest blog for her.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        ITA – Jill hasn’t changed, she has just found other avenues from which to spew her venom.

  10. Stella says:

    I was playing Scrabble the other night and I kept getting I’s. I was getting frustrated and then I thought maybe I should spell Hiiiiii. I mean as often as Kelly says it, it must be a word. 😉

  11. AZ Girl says:

    Cat O is the “life jacket” that Bravo needs for the NY Housewives to stay afloat. They are boring and as Adrienne beautifully said “bunch of middle age women trying to be hot”. LuMann is a joke and after the Cat smack down totally irrelevant. LuMann get a job. Jill… we can’t wait to hear about your new “gig” with Harpo. Right. Go back to Zarin Fabrics and leave us alone.

    • AZ Girl says:

      Am I sounding a bit bitter tonight??? 🙂

      • fort lauderdale gay says:

        Sounds like you’re graciously giving the ladies some sound advice…

      • quincyil says:

        Did you have a bad day?

        I think you will enjoy the RHNYC show and have a good time chatting with your friends here and go to bed feeling a little more happy that before.

        Life is full of ups and downs. We enjoy the ups more because we felt the downs.

        Love,

        Q

      • Okie Folkie says:

        No, I think you’re more than likely right on the money. The HWs alla ’em are getten a bit stale, for me anyway.

        “Life Jacket”=Cat O! 😉

  12. housewifeaddict says:

    Wow – rewatching LuLu and Ramona walking the dogs. LuLu really missed the point about why Ramona was upset. Newsflash – Ramona was upset about how Cindy’s brother behaved, not because she put her foot in her mouth. She always puts her foot in her mouth LOL.

    • quincyil says:

      Getting upset about her friends cigar seemed odd to me. Why Cindy refused to let Ramona talk to her brother is controlling and odd too.

      Each week, I like Cindy less. I don’t care if she is down town, she is a busy body and is extremely rude.

      • Okie Folkie says:

        There is something very odd, (to me) in Cindy’s relationship with Howie. Maybe since they work together and are together so much of the time, it comes across as odd to some viewers?

        • cabbie413 says:

          incestuous is the word you’re looking for

          lol lots of ppl find their closeness as middle aged siblings SUPER creepy

  13. Lavalady says:

    I have a question. The restaurant Sonja was supposed to go to with Cindy is Cipriani’s. They both pronounced it “Chip riani’s. But when the NJ Housewives went there, I think they said “Sip riani’s. Anyone know the right way to say Cipriani’s.

    • Stella says:

      In Italian ci and ce are pronounced chi and Che. Think Al Pacino. It is pronounced Al Pachino. Hope that helps.

  14. housewifeaddict says:

    Does Sonja’s dog have issues with other dogs? She carries him more than she lets him walk – especially around other dogs.

    • Vesper says:

      And wasn’t he all white last year? Did she dye him??? He’s a light brown now!! Don’t tell me to match that horrid ostrich feather dress?? 😀 Good Lord…

  15. Dani says:

    Lynn this was great I am so thrilled that you got the interview with Cat. Interesting to know that Cat felt exactly the way it seemed on WWH. I can’t stand Luann she is a phony and Bethenny called her on it a well. Bethenny was right she is a snake. I will never forget when Bethenny and Luann were in the back of the limo and she had to dress down Bethenny for introducing her to the driver as Luann. That did it for me with Luann.

    • quincyil says:

      One of Luann’s pet peeves is women putting lipstick on at the table. Did you notice the OC women were putting lipstick on at the table and Vicki powdered her face?

      Luann does not watch Bravo shows. I’m sure she didn’t see OC.

      • housewifeaddict says:

        Well – I agree with her on that one. All repairs to make up should be conducted in the powder room, not at a dinner table. I don’t know any real woman that repair their makeup in public.

      • Adgirl says:

        I read in Miss Manners that applying lipstick quickly at the table is acceptable. Beyond that go to the powder room.

  16. Ugh! 😦

  17. fort lauderdale gay says:

    Is Jill Ustreaming for her 3 fans?

  18. AZ Girl says:

    O.K Thanks Jill for the “airport” gifts and what the hell is kelly talking about?

  19. AZ Girl says:

    What is going on with that scene with piano and the boys? Francois is on medication? He is a little old to be sitting in mom’s lap?

    • housewifeaddict says:

      That was a very uncomfortable scene. It appeared as though there was something wrong with him.

      • AZ Girl says:

        bad editing? they are used to the camera’s by now?

      • cabbie413 says:

        yea they made Francois seem a bit OFF and in Francois-land

        • Nancy says:

          I thought he seemed autistic.

          • housewifeaddict says:

            I thought that too – the way he was staring off into the distance. Gosh I hope that isn’t it and it was just bad editing.

          • Zoey says:

            I thought the same thing as you guys. The editing makes Alex seem clueless as she describes how excited Francois is…then they cut to Francois in ‘I could care less’ land. I think they edited it poorly, but the little boys behavior did seem odd.

            • nathania says:

              Cohen is really after Alex this year for some reason.

              I wonder what she did to piss him off.

          • Susie says:

            Same thought came to me during the scene where she was holding him on the couch. But I know very little about that condition so I am not one to speak.

          • cdnfillie58 says:

            oohh..had the exact same thought Nancy. It was very uncomfortable to watch

          • SoutheastVA says:

            I agree. My husband has an autistic brother and he can spot it in people very quickly. After watching that scene he said that “he’s autistic.” If he is, I wonder if he’s been properly diagnosed. Simon and Alex seem like the type of parents that would be upfront about it and champion autism related charities like Holly Robinson Peete.

          • Aunt H says:

            That was my thought. He’s always acted that way and it fits that catagory.

  20. Cusi77 says:

    Francois is shy in front of the camera… Alex, do not force him, please!

    I think Alex and Simon mistake have been to try too hard to show how special their kids are -I do not doubt they are- but the poor kid just came awkward… what he knows about to make good TV?

  21. WindyCityWondering says:

    Got to hand it to Bravo – RHNY is a dog that don’t hunt so sneaking peaks at the RHNJ so they can get the ratings up.

    • Jill will think that the ratings went up because she came back in this episode. LOL

    • quincyil says:

      The show seems very different and I think it’s the new production company. The lead ins and the music is consistent, but they go from scene to scene and then back with jolts. Tonights show was a chopped up mess.

      I paid attention to the interaction of Alex and Jill. They were actually having a fairly good conversation and right in the moment of interest, the editors move away.

      Why did they change production companies? Did Jill Zarin have anything to do with that?

  22. lillybee says:

    Kelly making sense, I guess not.

  23. NMhousewife says:

    Ramona was very very nice at that lunch with Kelly….just handling her very carefully, and yet Kelly still trying to “rewrite history”…. as if we all didn’t see the way Kelly behaved.

    • cabbie413 says:

      kid gloves – Ramona knows whats up!

    • nathania says:

      amen to that.

      boy she was generous with Kelly.

      Ramona is something else. I can’t figure her out. Sometimes she seems completely off the charts in lala land, other times she shows a great deal of emotional intelligence. She treated Kelly like a child who might fracture right in front of her. That is a compassionate woman, because I would not have been so nice when Kelly started getting arrogant. I mean, what 42 year old woman has the nerve to accuse a friend of ‘not protecting them’…what was Ramona supposed to do, breast feed her or something?

      I don’t get Kelly at all….

  24. Butters'Mom says:

    It is official I hate that Barstool chick.

  25. WindyCityWondering says:

    Wowza! Sonja is definately Mr Hyde this year to her Dr Jekyll of last year!

  26. VAgirl says:

    Cindy’s a liar.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      Is she said she’s have Ramona’s wine – why didn’t she have it? It’s just like telling Sonja they are going to lunch then ditching her.

    • kotagirl29 says:

      A liar that swore on her children’s lives. I can’t stand her.

      • Zoey says:

        Oh yeah, I forgot about that. How weird! Can she be that forgetful? That was strange.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      So is LuAnn, Jill, Sonja and Kelly! lol

      • kotagirl29 says:

        Watching this show is like watching the telephone game in action. Every time a story is told and retold it changes completely. Okay I heard the pecking order thing, but I also heard Sonja say that Doorstop should be nicer to Ramona since Ramona got her on the show and how she was her champion, but I didn’t hear her say that Ramona was the Queen Bee or that Ramona was at the top of the housewives heap.

        Maybe I am interpreting it differently, but I took it to mean that Ramona is an original castmember and perhaps she should appreciate the introduction to the cast.

        • VAgirl says:

          That’s the way I saw it too.

        • quincyil says:

          People are inconsistent in real life and they don’t realize it. I have watched this kind of interaction of women over time and thought that something was wrong, but seeing it on camera proves that they simply don’t remember what they said or did in the past.

          • Zoey says:

            I think that’s part of it. But look at Ms Kelly ‘I don’t gossip’ telling Jill that Sonja said Ramona is the queen bee, trying to get Jill riled up. WE didn’t hear Cindy Barstool or whatever, say that, though she could have.

        • nathania says:

          I interpreted that whole scenario differently. Sonya is swinging in the wind. She was in a clique of four women, two of whom are long-married. Only one other one was single, and now that one is no longer around. She fits in much better with the Ho Brigade, but she doesn’t like them as much, I suspect, because she’s probably been at a much higher station in life than either could even dream of. She’s trying to straddle the ‘working girl’ and ‘ho brigade’ camps and bring them together so that they can elect her queen of the campus.

          It was repulsive tonight how she treated Cindy. I guess what we saw was Sonya Morgan in all her glory, holding court when she was undivorced. It hearkened back to her days of glory as Queen of Morgan Hill, where she lectured up and coming social climbers on how to get to the top of the heap without getting grass stains on their knees or lockjaw from all that ‘hostessing’.

          I literally felt a wave of nausea rush over me when she said “I’ve seen girls like Cindy come…and go…”

          Give me a freaking break Sonja. I hope she reads this. Cindy Barshop has an extremely successful business and before that she was an IBM executive. She used what is between her ears rather than that between her legs to get where she is, and she seems quite happy and satisfied with her life. Sonja will always have that nagging question in her mind of ‘what if I had not been such a ho-bag?’ and she was trying to push that away by condescending to Cindy. She was soooooooooo out of line it was insane. And as usual Cindy just sits through it because she’s only here on this show for one reason, and that’s free advertising for her business. She’s like’ grin and bear it, grin and bear it’…meanwhile it’s clear she thinks most if not all these chicks are insane.

  27. housewifeaddict says:

    LuAnn is wearing an enormous butterfly necklace that looks like it came from the dollar store as she criticizes Ramona’s jewelry line LOL

    • Nancy says:

      I was thinking the exact same thing. LuAnn is such a F###ing B.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      snort, I almost spit on my laptop when I saw that fugly butterfly breast plate.

      • kotagirl29 says:

        Maybe she is wearing it as armor against the verbal knives they fling at each other.

        • ihearttalavera says:

          The hubcap comment you made earlier regarding her necklaces had me laughing hard.

          • kotagirl29 says:

            If her necklace pendants look like that can you imagine how big her keychains are?

            I’m not into jewelry by I wouldn’t be caught dead in that crap she wears. She must have back problems by now.

      • Zoey says:

        I agree W, that thing was truly fugly. It’s probably one of Flavor Flav’s rejects she got on Ebay or something.

        • fort lauderdale gay says:

          “one of Flavor Flav’s rejects she got on Ebay” Love that, Zoey!

      • HD says:

        LOL @ butterfly breastplate. LOL!

    • VAgirl says:

      I know. What nerve!

  28. prof addicted to reality tv says:

    Ok, I need to talk!!!! These women are crazy!
    Here’s thie thing, I cant stand Sonja much………but trailer-trash Cindy is taking the cake! If someone old me to respect the pecking order, I would fling her tea/prosecco back in her face! if you cant take that………..dont be passive aggressive!

    Also, how much is Cindy’s IQ when after seeing the past 3 seasons, she *chose* to have *KrayKrays* back!!!!! She can NOT be smart. At all.

    • nathania says:

      I think she thinks of Kelly as ‘young and hip’ or whatever. She isn’t but of that group she is the most representative of the people that Cindy hangs out with in her ‘off-RHONY’ life

  29. neroes says:

    Really Kelly, what happened to I’m up here and your down there.

  30. prof addicted to reality tv says:

    I swear to *vodka* I never thought I would live in a world where someone said…”Thank god, after meeting Sonja and all the madness…I meet Kelly”!!

    Dude this Cindy woman is un-freakin-hinged. I think thats it for the franchise.

  31. housewifeaddict says:

    They spend their whole time telling each other how to behave – then gossiping behind each others’ backs. So far they haven’t done anything that’s interesting – it’s each, gripe, eat, gripe, eat, and walk their dogs.

  32. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    “Thank God after meeting Sonja and all the madness I meet Kelly”…is this chick for real?
    Who the hell would ever think such a thing?????

  33. Butters'Mom says:

    Should have known I’d hate Barstool since JZ kept saying how much we would like her. Not only is she insuferable she has a wierd chin and makes money convincing women to make their vajajays look like 9 year old girls.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      I don’t want to be mean, but her teeth look funny too. I only noticed because she made such a fuss about her veneers last episode.

    • lovemamaearth says:

      Yeah about the 9 yr old look.

      Cindy should just say she was wrong. Because she was.

      I don’t like the “pecking order” phrase, but imo Sonja’s advice is good. Who wants to be a bad hostess? Well other than Cindy.

      And how did the dancing start? That was Weird.

  34. Amber...Real Wife says:

    Cindy looks like a homeless hooker in those shawl, shorts, socks & boots, yet they keep telling her she looks great. How vicious.

    PruneAnn snarking on Ramona’s jewelry while wearing a belt buckle on her neck…priceless! LOL

  35. prof addicted to reality tv says:

    Lynne,
    May we please, please have a “How stupid is Cindy B?” blog??? Pretty please, with cherry and Baileys on top??????

    • quincyil says:

      She has a very successful business. I think the New York accent throws us off. She really speaks like someone from the Bowery.

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bowery

      Jill and Cindy went to college, yet they did not learn to speak English correctly. They must not have paid attention in class.

      • nathania says:

        I like Cindy, I just think she is woefully out of place on this show. It’s such a shame that she and Alex have not spent much time together because I think they could be friends.

      • prof addicted to reality tv says:

        A degree, alas, does not buy one wisdom…or even a higher IQ 🙂 Unless Cindy Bs business plan is to get KrayKrays friends into her salon (hmm…..a thinker….a definite possibility because who else would……..)….she really really picked the wrong person.

  36. Nancy says:

    Do Jill & LuAnn share dresses? Can we say Grandma’s couch?

    • nathania says:

      amen to that.

      That was awful, I was wondering if anyone would notice. I wonder if it was a vintage dress. I don’t see Luann as someone who would be into vintage or even know what it is.

    • fort lauderdale gay says:

      Just the dresses that Jill can’t sell on Ebay!

  37. cabbie413 says:

    omg Sonja lol – she’s the middle age paris hilton

    • Zoey says:

      Now if Kelly called Sonja the HO-bag of the century, I don’t think anyone would argue with her, lol.

    • nathania says:

      isn’t that the truth.

      that thing at the baseball field was horrifying.

      I am starting to think it was the ex-husband who is the reason her child is not on this show. Because he knows what she is capable of acting like. I don’t understand women who behave like this. Helpful hint for Sonya: your breasts and buttocks are in fact visible to the average male without your having to stick them out so far you are in danger of snapping your spine and ending up paralyzed. They will look at them just fine without any encouragement from you, all you have to do is show up.

      I swear to god this woman is either a former stripper or hooker if not both.

      • Zoey says:

        Hm, I wonder. She certainly seems like she has more experience than just being a ‘hostess’.

  38. WindyCityWondering says:

    Sonja is not as sexy as she is sleezy.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      She’s trying too hard.

      • Cusi77 says:

        I always have my doubts when people seem overly self confident like Sonja… when she was drunk in the yacht with Bethenny she cried about loosing sex appeal after giving birth… very telling…

    • quincyil says:

      The toaster oven looked bad. If I had that gorgeous stove in my kitchen, I know where I would be cooking.

      • nathania says:

        I am embarrassed to admit that if I ever buy a Housewives book it will be this one. I love toaster ovens, I love toaster oven food, and I have never thought of going so far as to fix things like fish and asparagus in one. I might buy it even if it wasn’t a Housewife book. There is something about the way a toaster oven cooks that is just perfect. One amazing snack I lived on when I was younger was plain bagels with mozzarella on top, cooked in a toaster oven til the cheese melted and then topped with medium picante sauce. Yummy.

        • fort lauderdale gay says:

          I love my toaster oven, too! Because there are only two of us at home, it’s great for making small portions. I’ve even made wonderfully rare to medium rare bone in Prime Rib in mine. Also, lasagna, stuffed manicotti and other tasty treats. There are a few tricks to keep things from browning too quickly but I would give up my microwave before I would give up my toaster oven!

      • SoutheastVA says:

        You should go to Chef Eric Ripert’s aveceric.com website. He was doing toaster over (a nice Cuisinart) recipes a year or more ago. His recipes are much better than Sonja’s.

    • Caitlin says:

      The only sane explanation for her get-ups/behavior/audacious comments can be rampant substance abuse. Any woman who can be so critical of others while behaving so ridiculously has to be in the deepest kind of denial!

  39. lillybee says:

    I think that Cindy may be taking Jill’s place in my most hated HW list.

    • prof addicted to reality tv says:

      Like!

      Its almost like she came into the franchise for that purpose.

  40. Nancy says:

    Ramona is an alcoholic.

  41. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    A “How stupid is Cindy B” blog would be great…maybe we get her to stop saying “Ramoner”..it makes me cringe!!!

    • prof addicted to reality tv says:

      Jill,
      If you are refering to one of the earlier comments, you could just clikc the “reply” button 🙂

  42. NMhousewife says:

    Thank goodness Kelly Ripa is on WWHL. Should be good because no scheduled housewife with her which means a more honest, funny show in my opinion.

  43. prof addicted to reality tv says:

    Both the brunettes look scared of food.

    Sonja, in todays “foodie” and nutrition aware day and age, do you *really* think that people will buy a book about toaster oven recipes? Did you do market research?

    if not, please do. No judgement about the results. Just let us know.

  44. housewifeaddict says:

    Are they going to show us the rest of that conversation??? Urgh those editors.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      Oh here we go.

      • housewifeaddict says:

        I guess this is the make up and talk it out episode. Jill is not very good at apologizing. HOW? LIKE WHAT? DID NOT! Urgh. Alex is trying to tell her how she was feeling.

        And Cindy is good at telling Ramona what she did wrong, not telling Ramona how it makes her feel. She should be sitting across from Jill LOL.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          Jill doesn’t do crocodile tears well at all!

        • ihearttalavera says:

          What Jill is “good at” and “does well” is spending Baww-baay’s money.

        • nathania says:

          okay that interaction with Cindy and Ramona had to have been HEAVILY edited. Because it made no effing sense under even the most generous interpretation. I can’t figure out what might have transpired that the women just sat there and basically said next to nothing, but something is missing from this ‘conversation’.

          Cindy simply cannot communicate with ANY of these women. She just doesn’t speak Housewife. She gets bulldozed in every conversation that doesn’t end in a complete stalemate. It’s bizarre.

  45. NMhousewife says:

    I was almost sorry for Cindy with Ramona directing those eyes at her at lunch…almost I said.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Ramona was likely waiting for an explanation about why Cindy told Kelly not to bring her kids to Sonja’s….for all the no gossip zone this episode is full of the nasty! Morocco is going to be obnoxious.

  46. Nancy says:

    Sonia is out of control. Her poor daughter. Bravo needs to make a rule. If you have any children under 18 no can do! Period.

  47. NMhousewife says:

    Both Ramona and Bethany tried to get together with Jill, put them together, and fix the problem…Jill is such an idiot!

    • prof addicted to reality tv says:

      The blondes are kicking butt tonight, no?

    • codystl says:

      I couldn’t believe that Jill said Bethenny wouldn’t make up with her! I guess we see now why Jill always needs her notes. How many times did she tell Bethenny she was “done”?

      It drives me crazy that no matter what happens, its all about Jill.

    • ihearttalavera says:

      Yes. And remember Luann pretty much put a stop to JZ and B talking things over when she whisked JZ out. If JZ is going to blame anyone, besides herself, it needs to be Luann.

  48. prof addicted to reality tv says:

    Ramona is a genius at putting people in their place! I love what she did to CB! God, I need to take lessons!

  49. cabbie413 says:

    no wonder where Kelly got that complaint pad from lol – she got it from Jill – Jill probably told Kelly that so she could shut up her complaing on the phone to her lol

    • housewifeaddict says:

      It’s not exactly an original idea – but they made some progress. It was much better than the Ramona / Cindy drinks. Alex and Jill will never trust each other – but Jill is right – it is very stressful to always worry about every word you say around someone.

      Unfortunately we know that the truce is now broken, but their dispute seems mild compared to the other drama going on.

      In Cindy’s defense – if she didn’t act obnoxious she’s have not made it on the show.

      • lovemamaearth says:

        ==In Cindy’s defense – if she didn’t act obnoxious she’s have not made it on the show.=

        True. Her chat with Ramona was off because Ramona didn’t know about Sonja’s pecking order lecture.

        Alex has had a lot of filler and I don’t know why she didn’t fess up to that. I do like her blond color.

        Poor Sonja thinking she’s still attractive to the young men. They were good sports about it.

        I think Jill had her eyes done and her under eye dimples filled.

        CrazyKelly just isn’t sane.

      • nathania says:

        I think the Countless should be strapped to a chair and forced to watch the interaction between Jill and Alex. Because that right there is the definition of CLASS, the way Alex acted. She is one classy dame, to the core. Something Luann of Ketchup will never be.

  50. housewifeaddict says:

    So Alex definitely doesn’t have the upstairs floors as part of her house. You could see the stairs in the background when she opened the door to Jill.

    • lillybee says:

      As typical in those types of homes in NYC the top floors are sometimes rented out.

  51. psol says:

    Bethenny now has 500,045 followers on twitter

  52. MichellefromNY says:

    Can it be….I like jill this episode. Go figure.

    • NMhousewife says:

      I was thinking that last scene with Alex and Jill was sweet and a good reconciliation…but it’s Jill, so I won’t be fooled.

      • nathania says:

        me either.

        I don’t trust her.

        I think she’s a ‘keep your friends close and your enemies closer’ kind of person.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      If this was the only episode I had ever watched, I’d like Jill. She’s probably be the only one I liked. Cindy, LuLu, Sonja, and Ramona no way. Kelly and Alex possibly – except for the piano scene with Alex.

      But I’m sure Jill will send out some strange tweets or write something obnoxious in her blog.

    • Nancy says:

      Me too. I’m off to the Emergency Room. STAT

  53. Butters'Mom says:

    Actually Barstool was was basically saying Romano let me tell u everything u do that pisses me off but I don’t want u to respond just sit there and take it. I don’t blame Ramona for not taking it.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      I’m still trying to figure out what her deal is with the lying or fake promises. Sonja’s lunch, and now Ramona’s wine. If you tell someone you’ll have their wine at your party, don’t get mad at them when they expect you to have it there. Like Ramona said – she’d have brought her own. Besides, after an hour and a half drive – a girl needs a drink.

  54. prof addicted to reality tv says:

    Kelly Ripa ROCKS!!!
    Her Countless impression was insane!

  55. Cusi77 says:

    I went to a weekend of “Forgiveness” years ago and the last day we wrote a letter to the person we couldn’t forgive -live or dead- and at the end we burn it! IT WORKS! It was very liberating even if the person involved was not there!

    That was a good final episode. I hope it works for them.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      Final episode?? We’re only about halfway though this season. They still have to go to Morocco. But I think the Alex / Jill truce will last – and all the drama will shift to Ramona. Just a guess, but picking on Alex was making the ladies less popular.

      • Cusi77 says:

        No! no! It was a sweet scene for the end of this episode, sorry…

        • housewifeaddict says:

          Yes it was. It’ll be nice if they can be cordial to each other all season.

      • nathania says:

        I honestly don’t know if I can take Morocco.

        This craziness is hard to take as it is.

        It’s not good-crazy, either.

  56. cabbie413 says:

    What’s YOUR perceived pecking order for #RHONY?

    • housewifeaddict says:

      Interesting question. Based on today’s episode

      Jill
      LuAnn
      Ramona
      Sonja
      Kelly
      Alex
      Cindy

    • Cusi77 says:

      I dislike Luann… she is so too many faces, not a fan!

    • Zoey says:

      Dysfunctional Power Bitch List:
      I see Jill and Ramona as about equal. The difference is, Jill stirs up trouble and schemes, whereas Ramona does it by accident or naturally. They both cause drama and face it head on. Yeah, ok, Jill has the edge on this.

      Then Sonja-she can be a troublemaker.
      Alex- won’t cause it but trouble finds her.
      Lumann and Kelly- followers tailing along. Sidekicks.
      Cindy- not sure yet.

      So I guess my list reflects that whoever causes the most trouble or manages to manipulate the others’ lives the most, seems to be in (sick) power.
      It’s late, I’ll have to re-evaluate in the morning….lol

    • lovemamaearth says:

      I can only go by likeability:

      Alex
      Ramona
      Jill
      Sonja
      Cindy
      LuAnn
      Kelly

      Cindy

  57. codystl says:

    I think you guys are being a little hard on Cindy. I think the rest of the wives have been pretty condescending to her. Ramoner could have been a little more open to hear Cindy out. Ramona was a little rude to demand her pinot at the party.

    Having said that, Cindy isn’t my favorite, but I think she can mix things up and maybe call some of them out on their fakeness. I think she’ll get fed up and let loose on someone before the end of the season.

    And, once again Lu was a condescending, snarky bitch.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      Enough with the wine. Cindy told Ramona she’s have it – so all Ramona did was ask for it.

      I think I’m bothered by how Cindy seems to want to pick a fight with Ramona and Sonja – like she’s made up her mind who she’ll start fake drama with.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        ITA – Cindy is fishing for a fight and IMO she was going for Ramona but she might have hooked Sonja by mistake.

        • Nancy says:

          WCW,
          I thought Sonia was a total bitch to Cindy when she had her over for tea.

          • WindyCityWondering says:

            ITA – Sonja was rude and getting more so by the minute because Cindy wouldn’t accept the dressing down gracefully.

            • nathania says:

              I think Sonya was higher than sunshine in that Red Queen tea scene.

              You’d have to be.

      • prof addicted to reality tv says:

        I agree. I think she did not want to be “under Ramona’s wing” just because R had introduced her to “society”/the show. Maybe there is some latent resentment that is coming out in CBs interactions with R.

        I agree with an earlier/later commentator that CB took out Sonja as lateral damage and now does not know how to deal.

        I think that CB does watch reality TV and does know that unless there is drama around you (or you are super funny/likable) you are out. So she set out to create drama. But I think she deserves a D because she studied, yet chose the wrong approach. Should have the hired a tutor. Or maybe the right tutor, not someone who flunked the course a year ago.

        Sorry for the analogy! Exams and grading are on my mind…..

      I agree cody.

    OMG. Andy, you are AMAZING. Thank you for pointing out classless countless!!!!

    • housewifeaddict says:

      What did he do – I changed the channel.

    • MichellefromNY says:

      Remember how last wwhl they had the “class with the countess”? well, andy used it to point out that this episode she wasnt classy, she was condescending to ramona at her party by correcting her in how to pronounce “venetto”. Classic.

    • Cusi77 says:

      I missed that! I adore Cat now! She got LuAnn from head to toe!

  59. kotagirl29 says:

    Sorry, Shill was trying, but I feel like she was trying too hard. I kind of like that Sonja was putting Doorstop n her place. Ramona handled herself well with Kookoo and Doorstop, she didn’t fly off the handle once. LuMann was running everyone down behind their backs, yet again. Kookoo has a very skewed perception of reality and sees things either the opposite of what happened or just changes it to suit her moods. Doorstop is a lying bitch and I can’t stand her. She swore on her children that she did not tell Kookoo about Sonja’s plans to invite Ramona but the replay showed her for the liar that she is. I see where they are leading us to the blondes v. brunettes battle royale. I just hope someone shuts Doorstop up.

  60. Pantry viewer says:

    I will not watch these disgusting, conniving, jealous cows sabotage Ramona this year the way they Did bethanny last year. Luann dogging her jewelry line, each of them getting in their preplanned insinuations that Ramona is an alcoholic and they all saying how awful she is is just too sickening to watch. They are pathological. It’s all so contrived and preplanned between them. Again going after someone having some success and trying to ruin their livelihood and reputation disgusts me completely. I’m done.

    • MichellefromNY says:

      hear hear!!

    • lillybee says:

      You may have to shoot me, but I like Ramona’s jewerly.

      • housewifeaddict says:

        So do I. I couldn’t believe the Countess was so rude to her. Ramona’s jewelry looks tasteful.

        • nathania says:

          I am finishing school this week, and they are only offering one class this summer that I can take. I am SORELY tempted to rewatch every episode and make a list of EVERY put-down the Countless has ever dished out. Because any time ANYONE gets something positive going, the Countless has to try to knock the knees out from under them. Ramona can’t model and Alex needn’t quit her day job either. Etc. It never fails.

          I think Mario deserves a medal for handing us the perfect moniker for lou ann de connecticut: Countless. If she hadn’t made such a big hairy deal about it by demanding an apology we’d never have known about it either.

      • VAgirl says:

        I like it too

    • housewifeaddict says:

      I feel the same way. And shame on bravo for only showing us the worst in these women. I’m actually feeling sick about watching these shows. At least Atlanta (first half of the season) and BH show them having some fun. OC and NY are just old, tired women. Maybe these franchises just can’t go past 2 or 3 years.

      • ihearttalavera says:

        Maybe since B’s show is turning out to be a huge hit, Bravo will take note that we also like to watch happy, nice people who get along, have fun, and like each other. Then they will possibly switch the format up a bit.

      • lovemamaearth says:

        They should get new people every season like Real World does.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Ramona pissed off Jill last season by having the trip – weapons down? I think not. Again Jill goes after a fan favorite, she just will never learn! Hopefully, Alex will have Ramona’s back because watching Jill’s minions at work is what is driving fans away from this franchise.

    • VAgirl says:

      Yep they are after Ramona and it looks like Jill is playing the “victim” again next week like she did with Bethenny and Alex last season. So tiresome. Who else are they going to pick on? I do hope at least Alex and Sonya (Paris Hilton, Sr.) have her back. If so, I guess it will be the Brunettes vs. the Blondes and Kelly (who is a brunette but calls herself blonde.)

      • Sara says:

        They did seem to gang up on Ramona. I’m still not understanding why Kelly’s beef with her is so blown up. She also thinks Ramona “threatened” her, good grief. Then Cindy just sitting there, pouting, like she had been wronged but not really saying anything. I didn’t see Ramona stopping her from speaking up. I felt like Luann was picking on the jewelry line just for the sake of picking on it because it was Ramona’s. Jill’s tears in the previews are so lame. Poor victim Jill getting beat down by that mean Ramona.

  61. Lawd, Jill finally won a WWHL poll. We will never hear the end of it. 😦

  62. Butters'Mom says:

    Pantry u r right I didn’t pick up on it myself. I remember that at some point last year Andy said it was “Ramona’s year” and she did come off really good last year. I think the other ladies were pissed that she got the “good edit” and since they got so much flack for going after Alex, their only option was to go after Ramona.

  63. lillybee says:

    I just read Kelly’s blog and her Ramona hate is over the top.

    • codystl says:

      I agree. Also, she keeps saying it was a “drunk” text at 1:30 in the morning. How would she know Ramona’s state? That’s how bad rumors get started. Also, it wasn’t threatening. Kelly is transitioning her craziness she had for Bethenny and shifting it to Ramona so far this season.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        ITA – and who knows maybe Kelly is the queen of drunk texting….takes one to know one sort of association.

        • Crisanna says:

          Kelly , Jill, and lulu are definitely trying to make Ramona sound like an alcoholic this season. They’ve mentioned it numerous times already and I know it’s an issue in morocco as well. Kelly even said that’s why she didn’t want her kids around her. Jill said something in her blog too.

      • NMhousewife says:

        Trying to make up with Kelly is useless, as she will only say “I appreciate that” with a kind look on her face, making the other person assume they are moving past something, and then she will turn around and continue complaining about her perceived insult. She did this tonight with Ramona, she did it on Scary Island with the girls when they calmed her down, and she did it with Bethenny beginning of last season at that fashion show meeting for Brooklyn. She is insane.

      • ihearttalavera says:

        Because she know Ramona is friends with Bethenny…

      • nathania says:

        probably because SHE’S always drunk when she texts at that hour. Kelly ALWAYS looks drunk to me. Her complexion I mean. The only people I know who don’t appear to know from one moment to the next whether they drink or not are alcoholics. Most other people are pretty sure what their habits are.

      • PJ says:

        I think Kelly is the kind of person that has to have someone to focus her hate on. She has this strange need to be a perpetual victim, to feel superior to another person, so she creates situations where she can claim she’s the victim of some person she has deemed to be horrible. We saw it with Bethenny who wouldn’t put up with Kelly’s stupid arrogance; but Bethenny is gone and refuses to interact with Kelly. Now Kelly is turning Ramona into her object of hate. Ramona didn’t protect her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! From what was Ramona supposed to protect Kelly, Kelly’s own crazy and irrational behavior as she attacked everyone on scary island? No one could protect Kelly because Kelly is crazy and the only person she needs to be protected from is Kelly. Kelly is working hard to redeem herself this season, and why would she need to do that if she didn’t know how bad she blew it last season. But I’m not buying Kelly’s act and you can tell she’s still crazy because you see the cracks in Kelly when she talks about Ramona. There is something very seriously wrong with Kelly; she is not normal, not even close. If Ramona somehow left the show and stopped interacting with Kelly then Kelly would find her next target that she would claim to be victimized by and it would go on and on from there.

  64. Pantry viewer says:

    Jill’s apologizing was contrived. She’s determined to look kind and sweet. She and Luann are behind masterminding Ramona’s downfall of her reputation and trying to hurt her business.

    • Nancy says:

      You know what? You’re right.
      Run Ramona run!

    • VAgirl says:

      I think I’ll go buy a bottle of Ramona’s Pinot and order some of her jewelry.

    • I agree with you and it makes me sick. They tried to do this to Bethenny last year and it backfired. They should have learned their lesson but they haven’t.

      • Caitlin says:

        I agree also on what they are trying to do to Ramona. But, like Bethenny, Ramona will only survive and be stronger (and richer!) for the experience!

    • ihearttalavera says:

      Everything Jill does seems contrived to me. That’s one of the many, many things that drive me crazy about her.

      • Zoey says:

        I agree. The ONLY reason Jill would set foot in Alex’ house and pretend to make up with her is:

        1. To look better to viewers, for sympathy/popularity.
        2. She has a larger plan to appear ‘changed’, so as to try to get back with Bethenny at some point.
        3. She’s so tired of hanging out with crazy Kelly she’s willing to try a new sidekick on for size.
        4. The only way to ‘handle’ Alex, she figures, and not be embarrassed by Alex calling her out anymore, is to superficially befriend her.

        These all benefit who? Jill. Big ole faker that she is. Size 2 my butt!

        • nathania says:

          I think you are right, especially #2.

          It’s all part of a larger plan to make people pay for ever having wronged her in any way. Sigh…so boring, so predictable.

        • fort lauderdale gay says:

          Let’s face it. Jill HAS to redeem herself in order to sell her products. One of the reasons her book failed to sell well (aside from it being a worthless piece of self promotion) was the fact that she became the most hated housewife at the time the book was released. So if she’s going to have ANY chance of selling her gussets and bedspreads, she’s got to improve her likability.

  65. lillybee says:

    Has anyone tried Ramona’s Pinot? Cindy’s blog may be the bitchiest one of all time.

    • housewifeaddict says:

      Cindy’s blog was insulting to us viewers. “Sorry, I don’t have time for this, so please excuse yourself while I sip on my martini after a crazy day at work, and catch up on emails! Buh-bye!”

      Ohhhhkayyyy, No one forced you to be on this show – you nasty woman.

      • ihearttalavera says:

        She is incredibly abrasive. Yuck.

      • nathania says:

        I have to say…

        that is the attitude I picked up on on this episode.

        and, honestly, I can’t blame her. Sonya is a delusional idiot and the lunch with Ramona made no sense to me at all. None of these people are her ‘type’ and they would never be friends. It’s a bad fit, and the one person she fits in with is frighteningly unstable and semi-illiterate. I bet she regrets coming on this show. It probably looked A LOT better to her last year because Bethenny’s presence was huge. With B. gone it’s painfully obvious how idiotic most of the cast is. I think Cindy should have done her homework. If she had, she’d have tried to get to know Alex. And Alex would have had an ally, which would have benefitted the whole show. Now it’s too late.

        • ihearttalavera says:

          That’s true. She could actually be a nice person who is just so disgusted with the bad behavior of these women, she’s coming off like an angry psycho. Who knows. It’s a bad first impression though.

          • prof addicted to reality tv says:

            And when a significant part of the management degree is geared towards *helping* you deal with humans! CB = D-

  66. VAgirl says:

    Ramona can do without being on the housewives. It means much more to Jill, Sonya, Kelly and Luann. Oh I forgot, Luann has her singing career and Jill has her book, bedding line and sqweez couture.

    • fort lauderdale gay says:

      The mere mention of CSBHH and singing in the same sentence makes me want to hurl. Add career to that and I just about need 911.

    • nathania says:

      oh my god, please tell me it really isn’t called “sqweez couture”.

      I mean, could there be anything else on earth that is more of a polar opposite of couture than the new millenium girdle?

  67. housewifeaddict says:

    LuAnn’s blog was actually okay. She calls Cindy out. I wonder if she’s moving to neutral territory after her spanking on WWHL.

    • VAgirl says:

      She still dissed though. I posted on everybody’s blog except Sonja’s. We’ll see how many get through.

  68. jeang says:

    Which still means no brunnette housewife of ny is making bank, except Barstop and of course the blonde Ramona.,

  69. WindyCityWondering says:

    Ramona had the best line tonight – Jacques is a major whinner. Love her!

    • NMhousewife says:

      I missed that part twice. Can you give me the backstory on this comment?

    • Zoey says:

      Yeah, that was good. I’m watching again and it’s uncomfortable seeing Jill pretend to try to be nice; she’ll end up getting ill. She just can’t do it!

  70. NMhousewife says:

    I am rewatching the show where Luann is at Ramona’s event. I can’t believe it but Luann is even more prententious now she is dating the French wine expert.

    • ihearttalavera says:

      She was off the charts obnoxious.

      • Aunt H says:

        I could not believe it when the Countless said she didn’t know it was a “Mary Kay party”. Mary Kay ought to sue her. She knew it was for Ramona to promote her new line and she knows how that works. She needs to be hit upside the head with a manners book. Hard.

  71. Pantry viewer says:

    Glad you guys see it too. Butters you are exactly right. Ramona did great changing herself last year, put Jill in her place, was a good and kind friend to bethanny and Alex and has successful businesses. Jill and Luann are seething with jealousy and revenge. Jill desperately wants a kinder image, Kelly desperately wants to look not crazy and they are attempting to humor her in That regard. Luann just desperately wants to look relevant and is taking the lead in the passive aggressive smack Downs she keeps dishing out. They are so transparent and watching it is dark and disturbing to me.

    • ihearttalavera says:

      Sounds like you are seeing things very clearly from the pantry! I couldn’t agree more.

  72. Zoey says:

    Why is Lumann wearing a gold necklace wrapped on each side in duct tape??? Is she running out of huge, gaudy, boulders of turquise?

    • lillybee says:

      But she can trash Ramona’s jewerly.

      • Zoey says:

        She sure did. Seems she can never really be happy for any of her ‘friends’. She is a very jealous person. AND yes, I think she is a part-time mother, if that!

        • ihearttalavera says:

          I don’t even think she’s jealous. I think she truly believes she is better than everyone else on the planet.

          • HD says:

            Is that really duct tape on her necklace? I keep looking at it but I can’t imagine the dahhhhhhhhling Luann would do such a thing.

            • Zoey says:

              I was just joking about it being duct tape but maybe we should ask the Countless herself? Tell her we repaired one of our necklaces the SAME way, how genius of her! She’ll probably never wear it again!

  73. Emily H. says:

    Cat,……you acted like a PIG. A DRUNK PIG. Please tell me you were under some influence. Luann handled it well. When asked by Andy if she wanted to retort, she chose the high road. Cat ought to take a lesson from Luann on how to keep her mouth shut. She embarrassed herself. Off subject, I wish Cat would get some damn throat drops. That scratchy, deep voice leaves me wondering if shes a chain smoking, whiskey drunk, or if at any moment, she’s going to reach down and adjust herself. Gross.

    • NMhousewife says:

      Luann is hardly one to take lessons from on keeping her mouth shut. The only reason she didn’t respond is because she didn’t know what to say.

    • Nancy says:

      Emily, I think you are talking about LuMan.

    • VAgirl says:

      Emily, Luann didn’t have a retort because what Cat said was spot on. How could she counter the truth?

      • HD says:

        LOL @ VaGirl! Okay! All Cat did was tell the truth! And I for one am SO GLAD someone finally got her back for all her little digs she takes at people!

    • ihearttalavera says:

      I don’t think that anybody should take lessons about anything from Luann, but I do agree with Emily about Cat. I think the there was only one other negative comment about Cat on this blog. The person mentioned that Cat was was set off when Andy and Luann laughed at her claiming to be only six or seven years younger than Prince Harry. So right on. She was seething, and showed absolutely no class in dealing with the situation. If she was that unhappy being there, she should have excused herself during the commercial break. That would have been better than the way she came off. Although I do love that she stayed because I did like hearing her call Luann out. As much as I can’t stand the incredibly passive-aggressive Luann, I have a hard time believing she “stormed in” before the show as Cat claimed.

      • kit9 says:

        Cat’s a proven liar. She’s also dumber than a door knob. Does she not think people can find out easily she’s lying about her age. And, she also lied during her own crap, now cancelled, show. There’s no way in hell, Luann ‘stormed in’.

  74. Nancy says:

    How could Sonia sit there with Kelly and Ramona (at lunch) and hear the “crazy” going on and on about Ramona NOT supporting Kelly on Scary Island?
    Hello Sonia. You were there. They are out for Ramona’s head.

    • VAgirl says:

      Because Sonya knows it would have done no good to say that. Sonya and Ramona both know Kelly is koo koo and they are not going to play that game. It’s best to just nod your head when Kelly is talking. Ramona knows that Sonya knows what went down. Sonya says so in her Bravo blog. She handled it correctly.

    • cabbie413 says:

      i honestly think Sonja was hanging out with Kelly, Luann, and Jill to ride the fence a little and spy for the other side. She eventually chooses Ramona and Alex has allies over the 3 bitter b.tches (kelly, luann, jill). Cindy is a non factor.

  75. Adgirl says:

    How dare LuAnn dig on Ramona’s jewelry???! What business has LuAnn ever created and run successfully?
    All of the snots who have never run a business sniff and look down their noses as if it is so easy. But not one of them they could run a battery operated dildo without assistance. LuAnn, Kelly? Gretchen, Alexis? Idiots.

    • fort lauderdale gay says:

      As I stated in an earlier blog, LuAnn has the worst taste in jewelry of any woman in the modern world.

      • nathania says:

        this is soooooooooooo true.

        unless she is a black smith and does it all herself out in the backyard at the Hamptons.

        It isn’t jewelry so much as body armor. I wonder if she uses it to hide her Borg implants or something. Maybe she’s really a Countess of the order of the Hive Mind and that’s why she’s so insistent on using her title.

  76. WindyCityWondering says:

    Does Kelly not see the faces being made when she tells her version of reality? Ramona’s text was not a threat. Childish maybe but not a threat. I’m sorry but I am not getting into this tread lightly, don’t upset the crazy girl crap going on this season.

  77. Dani says:

    Thank you all for getting me up to date on what went on tonight with the New York B*#@*&s. I just can’t watch this show any longer. I knew Jill was going to be on tonight and I could not stand to hear that foghorn voice of hers. Doesn’t sound like I missed anything that I haven’t seen in the past seasons.

    • VAgirl says:

      You really didn’t other than the evolving trend by J, L, K, and C to go after Ramona this season.

      • Dani says:

        That makes me feel bad for Ramona. Ramona is a little out there, however, I don’t think she is a mean girl like Jill and Luann. I wonder if she can see that they are trying to push her out like they tried to do with Bethenny. Jill is so nasty. After Ramona asked Jill to leave scary island I am sure that she put out a hit (aka don’t film with her) on Ramona.

    I had recorded the show and just started watching it. I made it to the lunch the 4 evil women were at talking about Ramona and I paused it….i sat there and realized that I have absolutely no desire to watch this. This was my favorite show since it started and now… I realize that I just don’t like it. For Sonja to sit there and talk to crazy Kelly as if that vacation never happened…..all 4 of them just disgusted me so much. 😦

    • VAgirl says:

      SuzieQ. I feel your pain. It was my favorite of all the franchises. What a disappointment.

    • Caitlin says:

      I think some of us (well, myself, anyway) were so impressed by Sonja last season and were hoping she’d fill some of the gap left by Bethenny’s departure. I’m watching her scary transformation into a total whack job like a car crash I just can’t turn away from. It is bizarre and compelling at the same time.

      • ihearttalavera says:

        She is totally different from last season. I liked her last season too. I wonder if the fame went to her head, or if she was being fake last year.

    • nathania says:

      Sonya is going to learn the hard way that straddling the fence like that is going to get her nothing but a butt full of splinters.

      • quincyil says:

        I was tired, but I watched. There was no happy moment last night. If Bravo thinks that we love conflict, they are wrong. I love the good times of season one and season two.

        • Suzieq says:

          See….I loved the good times too, but what if they changed either the editing or the women changed themselves…..?? Is our dislike for them too deep set in us to make a difference? I know my dislike is soo strong that no matter how they try to redeem themselves….it will never make me like them again. 😦

    • prof addicted to reality tv says:

      Agree.
      But I still watched.
      partly because I love this blog and the chat and comments 🙂
      Oh, and did I not mention that I live alone, 2000 miles away from my husband?
      😛

  80. Adgirl says:

    LuAnn is really infuriating me this season. Didn’t last season start with LuAnn having an extended case of the vapors because Mario called her “Countless” to friends of his? Let me see, tonight she basically called Ramona stupid for mispronoucing the area in Italy her wine is made, she strongly implied Ramona is an alcoholic and that Ramona has terrible designs for her jewelry line.
    LuAnn is one nasty mean spirited woman.

    • VAgirl says:

      She is the worst. Worse than Jill and that’s saying alot!

      • nathania says:

        she is…because she is emotionless.

        so it slips right under the radar when she says terrible things.

        no feeling, no emotion. people react to heightened emotions like Jill shows. Luann has ice in her veins so she drops those mean-bombs with great subtlety. That’s the only way she gets away with it, if she showed any emotion at all when saying those horrible things people would punch her out.

    • ihearttalavera says:

      Let’s face it, these women all pretty much hate each other’s guts. It’s just painful to watch.

  81. HD says:

    Sorry…just now watching the show.

    Is Kelly THAT afraid of Ramona? Is all this because of the “Scary Island” incident? What is wrong with Kelly?

  82. Dani says:

    I didn’t watch WWH tonight. Would some one please tell me what the poll question was?

    Thanking you in advance.

  83. HD says:

    Did Sonia REALLY mention the damn Pinot Grigio?! How old are these women?

    • ihearttalavera says:

      Right? I think this may have been more a branding deal that she didn’t follow through on than just not having her favorite drink. It’s too much!

    Luanne: Ramona’s jewelry is very nice, it is just not for me.

    She critized the jewelry, the wine, the pronunciation, the way she handled Cimdy’s brother. To her face and on the talking head…. Ugh Darling!

    • Cusi77 says:

      Cali you are sooo funny! When I saw that over sized “Brass” butterfly I could not help myself and broke a big laugh! To be honest, I have seen of her jewelry from other Seasons and there are some antiques she was wearing I do like… Not wearing all of them at the same time. LooseAnn is a big woman she can wear big pieces,,, but this season is a bit too much larger! I dislike her one tiny notch (really tiny) below JZ. But she can be the winner of antics this Season!

      • fort lauderdale gay says:

    So true Luann…Just like you can bang a wine distributor and still not know a thing about wine either. Get over yourself.

    • California35 says:

      Oh yeah I saw that! Ugh! Saying you have class for years and years, doesn’t make you have class.

      • fort lauderdale gay says:

        I think LuAnn was a finishing school drop out. Or perhaps they expelled her?

    • ihearttalavera says:

      How obnoxious was that whole conversation????

    • Sara says:

      I don’t recall Ramona claiming to be a wine expert. Luann’s interruption to correct her was telling though… HA, HA, you said it wrong. I know how to pronounce it properly, and you don’t. *I* know more about wine than you.

      • ihearttalavera says:

        She was so excited to correct her, she couldn’t even hide it. That made her look really ugly.

  87. Sara says:

    OMG. Jill, Kelly, and Cindy taking a stroll through the park… Jill: “They’re picking up each other’s bad habits” about the other ladies. lmao Obviously, these three are the ones we should be rooting for. They’re so nice. They don’t want drama. They just don’t get why others are vicious.

    Is Sonia getting ready to launch her own line of toaster ovens?

    Ramona: “Vodka you’re going straight for the vodka?”

    Yes, Ramona. Cindy is having a martini. We will overlook the ten pinots you drink. I mean sheesh!

    • California35 says:

      Lol – that was funny, why wold she say that? That what Cindy wanted to have, why question that?

      • Adgirl says:

        People make judgements about beer or wine vs “hard” alcohol. Honestly, I think there is probably a similar amount of alcohol in a large glass of wine and a regular cocktail.

        • JenFromCincy says:

          Pinot grigio is between 12.5 and 13.5% alcohol by volume. Vodka is 40%. Ramona could have a couple glasses of wine and still be drinking less alcohol than Cindy was in one vodka martini.

          Whether she should have commented on it or not, definitely debatable, but there is a big difference in the alcohol contents of beer and wine vs. liquor.

          • HD says:

            I always find it laughable that people who drink wine like its water think they are soooooooooo much better. Those women drink constantly but it’s alllllllllllllll good as long as it’s wine. As long as Ramona is sipping wine its fine. Can you imagine if she asked for liquor like that? No one would think it was funny if she was saying, “I need my Jack Daniels.”

  91. Mt says:

    Cindy bores me.

  92. HD says:

    Did Jill really call Alex’s kids animals? I can’t remember.

  93. HD says:

    I’m sorry ya’ll but Ramona needs to shutup about the pinot already! It is working my nerves. All this drama over a glass of wines (or with Ramona glasses of wine). Cindy didn’t have the damn drink! Get ovet it! Who cares?! Who does that? You may ask a friend, do you have “x” if she doesn’t, you drink what is there! Who the hell does Ramona think she is, Dionysus’s wife?! Let it go already! They didn’t have your freaking wine!

    • A.T. says:

      Wasn’t Cindy the one who brought it up though?

      • HD says:

        I can’t remember it made me so mad. But I am sure Cindy mentioned it because everywhere she goes someone is talking about Ramona needing it and why didn’t she have it and Ramona talked about with Luann and Sonia talked about it and Alex said last week she always has it for Ramona and blah blah blah! Goodness. Then she wonders why people are implying she is a lush! Every time you look up she is talking about that damn wine! I am wondering if she is talking about it so much because she has her own line of it?

    • California35 says:

      Lol agree lol

      The thing I noticed with Cindy though, is that she says yeah yes on things and then they are no. The Pinot is one the other was about lunch with Sonjia. I still don’t know if it is because she is fleaky or because she doesn’t want to deal with the drama if she initially says no.

      • Adgirl says:

        And she promised not to tell Kelly about Sonja’s toaster dinner plans to invite Kelly and then she ran right over to kelly to blab. After that she swore on her children’s heads to Sonja that she didn’t do that. LOL.

        Hard to keep all of the lies straight – isn’t it Cindy?

  94. California35 says:

    Cindy and Ramona’s meeting didn’t go well. I wondered if it had to do with what Ramona really “did” or “said” or was ir because of what Sonjia and Kelly have said to Cindy about Ramona? I am serious, I am wondering. I have watched this season late and might have missed something, but the only thing I remember that Cindy was annoyed about was the “incident” Between Ramona and Cindy’s brother.

  95. HD says:

    Did Jill say she was angry with Bobby for being sick?

    • A.T. says:

      Yea, I thought she would follow it up with something. That sounded weird on its own.

    • California35 says:

      Yep, she was angry last year … Even to Bobby!!!

    • Mt says:

      She was angry with Bobby for being sick and with Bethenny for not wanting to make up. WTF on the first one, and the second is a lie.

      • Adgirl says:

        It isn’t unusual to be angry at people who are seriously ill. It’s the fear morphing into anger.

        • quincyil says:

          Yes, Bobby represents financial security to Jill. She has a few years where she and Ally were on their own and being without a man scares Jill.

    Jill looked horrible during her apology to Alex. Her face was gray. She looked her age or older. She needed color on her lips to distract from the fact that her eyes are so close together.

    • California35 says:

      I have been paying more attention to her face after that stupid new look of hers with pony tail and no bangs lol so I did notice that. It seems like she looks difrent every time I see her. In that scene I was thinking, damn it might be that time to go do her procedures she does every 6 moths lol

    Kelly’s blog:
    1. Jill is finally back. Mommy is home!
    2. Ramona is horrible & mean and tries to make me cry everyday
    3. Sonja is a cook not a chef. Toaster ovens are so 1972.

    My favorite: “Cindy is a very successful businesswoman and is an incredible woman. I’ve only known her for a few weeks, and I like her. I’m honestly unsure about what Sonja and Ramona have against Cindy. Jealousy is an ugly color that looks good on no one. “

    Umm. Jealous? Isn’t Ramona a business woman and like 10x richer than Cindy? However, I have no doubt Sonja wouldn’t mind running a vagwax shop.

    • ihearttalavera says:

      Wow, K is dumb. The only reason J is nice to her, IMO, is to spite Bethenny. You can tell how irritated she gets when she tries to have any kind of coherent conversation with her.

  101. Rabble Rouser says:

    Is it just me or does anyone find it a little suspect that in the same episode that shows Alex telling Jill she is upset about some of the things she says about her boys..they also show a scene of the boys (at least Francois) acting up/silly?

    I know some kids act like goof balls (believe me my 4 year old is one) but it just seemed funny the way Alex was making him about to be a child protege only to be followed by him avoiding eye contact and trying to grab at nothing.

    • Tan says:

      I found that whole scene with Francois odd. Almost like a set up for something that will be revealed later. Otherwise, it didn’t seem necessary.

    • quincyil says:

      I raised two boys and never had them act like Alex’s son last night. She had to tell him to look at her. That was very odd to me.

      • Kukulet says:

        I have a severely autistic son, and, as an offshoot of that, I’ve been working with his special needs classmates for nearly 17 years, so I’m pretty familiar with developmental disorders as a layman. And there was something about Francois last night that sent up a red flag to me. The part where he was sitting on Alex’s lap and avoiding the eye contact. I can’t help but wonder if there is some developmental delays or autism going on with him, and last night’s scene was set up for a future revelation.

        • Kellita says:

          I noticed the same thing. My son is the same age, and he never acts like that. There was definitely something off with his behavior.

          • Rabble Rouser says:

            I’m glad you all said it.

            I think I mentioned that my daughter has some developmental issues and is in a ‘special day class’ (thankfully she doesn’t have a cognitive delays- actually many kids in her class don’t either) and the whole eye contact aversion and the way Alex dealt with in reminded me of some of the behaviors I’ve seen with some of the kids who are in the spectrum in my DD’s class.

        • Nancy says:

          KuKulet,
          I said the same thing up thread. My cousin’s little boy is autistic and when I saw Alex’s son a big red flag came up. They have him on the “no dairy ” diet. Have you read about that? How is your son doing? If I may ask.

      • kotagirl29 says:

        I just think the boys are getting to the age where they are shy. My son STILL gets shy about asking someone something or telling someone something, even family. And when he was Francois’ age getting him to open up when he didn’t want to was like pulling teeth. I’m not comfortable diagnosis the kids as having anything. They looked like they were acting like kids to me.

    • boston02127 says:

      I thought Francois was odd too. But after thinking about it, I just figured he knows (and saw) all the camera’s set up in his house and was shy. Alex talkes to him likes he’s fifteen. When she was explaining who that man playing the piano was and that he was a grad of Juilliard, I can see why Francois could have cared less. He probably would have been more excited to see Bob the Builder in his house.

      • Kukulet says:

        Yeah, I agree with you about that-that he was feeling shy and overwhelmed. But there was also a vacant look to his face when he was sitting on Alex’s lap that reminded me of what is known as “mind blindness” with autism. That blank look is a very outward symptom of that. That, the failure to make eye contact, and the way he was distractedly flipping her hair.

        I could easily be wrong…I just had the sense that there was something else going on there.

    • MicheleF. says:

      I don’t think there is anything wrong with him – I think he is on the shy side and was reacting to having a stranger in his house. (the piano guy) Although my son didn’t act quite like that when he was younger, he did fall silent when someone he didn’t know was in our house until he got to know them. I knew right away they weren’t going to get the reaction they wanted out of him. He will probably talk nonstop about how wonderful his piano is after the strange guy leaves! Just my opinion!

  102. Adgirl says:

    The only reason LuAnn protects Kelly is since her marital demotion LuAnn needs Kelly’s social contacts. LuAnn doesn’t get invited to swanky events anymore so she is praying Kelly will hook her up.
    Kelly is still invited to parties because she provides free publicity and name dropping in her 100 word “journalism” articles. Kelly is friendly and attractive and she probably unknowingly provides entertainment during her 15 minute surgical strikes at the events.

    Cindy is on because she wants to franchise her Completely Bare spas. “We’re going nationwide”. Only God knows why Bravo thought we’d be entertained by her.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Jill assigned LuAnn to Kelly wrangling this season…funny how in seasons past Kelly couldn’t keep the distain and dislike of LuAnn hidden. Now she follows LuAnn like a dorky puppy.

  103. boston02127 says:

    Lynn, Thx for the great blog. The interview with Cat was great. She seems down to earth.

  104. Kukulet says:

    What gets me about Jill, Kelly, and LuAnn is that you NEVER hear them say anything nice about the other women in the interviews. Ramona and Alex say both negative and positive things, but the others stick with the negative.

    Think about their interviews – when was the last time you heard any of the three say anything remotely positive?

    Jill said it last year, and I missed it at the time, during the argument at Jenn’s apartment. Alex said, “I don’t want to hear what you think is wrong with my husband…family…house…etc” and Jill came back with “Well, then we can’t be friends, because that’s the way I am.”

    You’re right, Jill. That is exactly the way you are. Some friend.

    • quincyil says:

      There are people out there like this. You either tune them out or have nothing to do with them.

      • Kukulet says:

        Yes, but these particular three walk around with the attitude that they are universally loved. All three need a good bitch slap.

  105. boston02127 says:

    Last nights show……blah. Jill looks awful. Watching Kelly makes me sick and she’s not looking too good either. I can’t stand her even more now that she’s talking more. Last night she kept saying Romana left her a threatening message, ugh. Romana said: “if you don’t support me I don’t plan to support you”. I didn’t see that as threatening at all. Kelly should check in at some type of institution and stay there. She’s so dumb, I can’t take it.

    I was thinking about what Jill said about Alex at that wedding a few weeks ago. “The wedding was so above Alex”. The wedding was at a house! Granted probably a nice house but still a house and ended with a yard party. Have you ever walked on grass with heels on? And Jill was talking to a woman with a tye dyed dress on. Where did Jill think she was, the Ritz?

    This season they are all so obnoxious, unkind and not funny. Bethenny made that show and without her the show pretty much sucks.

  106. boston02127 says:

    I use to think Sonja was pretty. Now that I don’t like her, I don’t. Funny how being ugly on the inside reflects on the outside. And I hate how she acts with men and about sex. Enough is enough, nobody wants to hear it on EVERY episode. She makes herself out to be slutty.
    That clip that Bravo shows of her in what I think is a cheerleading outfit and her bending down to show her butt is pretty gross and to me speaks volumes about her.
    I can’t stand when grown women play the cute-sy act. (gretchen)

    • ihearttalavera says:

      So true. Where did those boobs in the outfit she wore tonight come from? Wow.

      A perfect example of what you are talking about – behavior ruining looks – is JZ. I think she’s actually very pretty in most photographs. It makes me think of online dating. How someone could look so good in a picture, but then when you meet them and are exposed to the whole package, not so much.

    • ihearttalavera says:

      WHHHHYYYY did they let her back stage??? I swear her voice makes the hairs on my neck stand up. I can’t imagine how much these people get paid to have to listen to her all day. Ewwwww!!

  108. WindyCityWondering says:

    Last night’s episode was another disappointing one! Without humor this franchise has no chance of recovering from the lose of their breakout star Bethenny. Without a ratio of positive friendships to the petty behind the back shreddings and product marketing, the commercials are a surprising break from the drek! Jill hasn’t changed, LuAnn is still a classless bore and Bravo has once again disrespected their fan base by making it watch Kelly, who clearly is still unbalanced, uninteresting and unwatchable.

    • Kukulet says:

      Even full of Thorazine, Kelly is inane. The only difference this season is that she has traded constantly chewing on her hair for sitting quietly with the glassy eyed stoned look. And her blog is just the usual bizarre non sequiturs.

      Ramona “threatened” her? What an idiot. Even Sonja called her on that one.

      Mental illness and/or drug use aside, Kelly is just dumb. Bethenny nailed it with the “unintelligent” remark. She’s just boring.

      Has Kelly ever been on WWHL? Just curious…I can’t remember if Bravo ever “forced” her to show up for that.

      • ihearttalavera says:

        I don’t think she’d be able to keep up with the witty banter. Or play the silly games with her level of intelligence. It scares me that she is raising two girls on her own. I hope she has a great nanny for them. It’s their only hope.

  109. boston02127 says:

    Well….I hate to be a Jill Brag-insky but I’m off today and all weekend and I have my new fridge, cabinets and counter, sink, etc. The floors are done too. The stove is going in next week after the gas co comes to inspect it. It’s a small kitchen but it’s cute. I’m going to buy food! Then come back & clean. Sounds boring but I’ve been dying to get things done. I’ve been living in a dust bowl, it’s so nice not having workers here. It will be nice to get everything in order and clean. BBL.

  110. Aunt H says:

    Cat was the only DC Hw I liked. She’s like a breath of fresh air. Her take on Lulu the Countless fits my own opinion on her worshipless.
    Since her Divorce=Demotion=whatever, Lulu is showing us how classless she truly is. Oh, she can’t sing either. I do hope she isn’t doing any more ‘manners’ talks to the young girls at some school. She was sooo rude and you could see the blank looks on the girls faces. Like they cared she had a title?

    Alex seems lost without Bethenny and that’s sad. I think she’s probably a very nice person but the only other NYHw she can even talk to without getting a snide aside is Ramona. I do think they don’t really understand their kids are rude. At least Simon remembers her birthday. Some husbands have a problem with it and he does plan something to make her feel special. So Cindy and Kelly the Amazon Wildwoman didn’t care for the location. Don’t go if you don’t like it. If you do go, be on time.

    Cindy is sort of strange to me. I wanted to like her. Maybe I will but I’m not so sure why. I understood her reaction to the others diss’n her birthday party location. They were not kind. If they are the elite, I’m glad I’m not.

    Sonya the nonya is a moron and probably not all that. I think she’s as fake as her boobs.

    Jill may be finding out she’s human and can make some errors. It’s about time. Don’t care who she knows or hobnobs with, she doesn’t act classy. That tantrum over the no front row seat at the fashion show when she said she’d gone out and purchased that designers suit and it was VERY expensive spoke volumes. Bet she returned it the next day. I’m not even thinking I want to read her book on advice. It’s clear by her actions on the show she ought to take a few lessons from someone else.

    Kelly is a mental case. I do hope her adorable girls have some sane adult with them. Their mama acts like she’s younger than they are. I have a feeling her ‘friendships’ with those in the ‘fashion industry’ are just that. Industrial. So Mr Gucci asked her to sit at his table. Then she said she was leaving? Maybe it wasn’t a chair that was offered but the floor. She could make dust angels. She is unable to even talk to anyone who is not adoring her. She blocks anything unpleasant and she will not admit she may be wrong. “Killed with a butter knife?” She’s more than an airhead. She’s certifiable.
