I Hate Jill Zarin The Real Housewives of New York
Ok I know we have some New Yorkers who read this blog, I need some answers.
Don’t they have little league baseball, soccer or any other team sports that these kids could play in Brooklyn? How can a kid get excited about a piano? Sure I know some kids love to play piano, I’ve never met any of them but doesn’t every kid want a new mitt or a new bat for their birthday? No lie, my son plays Basketball, Baseball, Lacrosse, Hockey and Football, so maybe I’ve just got sports insanity but I have just two words for Alex and Simon – team Sports!
I know Alex said that seeing that piano in the dining room was a magical moment for her son, but to me a magical moment is when your son hits his first home run, scores a goal with his new lacrosse stick, hits that basket with nothing but net or joins his team on the ice to receive their 1st place trophies. Hearing the National Anthem at your son’s All Star game will bring tears to your eyes. Trust me Alex.
New York is the largest city in the country, are we supposed to believe that Kelly and Cindy just accidentally ran into Jill Zarin walking her dog. So question number two for you New Yorkers, doesn’t New York City have a doggy leash law? What is that damn Ginger Zarin doing running around free like she thinks she’s Cookie on Malibu beach? Sorry Jill Zarin, you have to follow the rules too!
Another question for you New Yorkers, do you all have a hot young latin dancer houseboys? What exactly are his duties Ms. Morgan? Apparently dancing with Cindy isn’t one of them, wow, Jealous much?
Although previously promised that Jill wouldn’t return until the end of the episode tonight, there she was scene one in her talking head interview saying that she had a realization while vacationing in Australia, she wasn’t going to gossip and be a mean girl. Before her ass hit the chair she was gossiping and slamming Ramona along with Luann, Kelly and Sonja. You remember Sonja folks, Ramona’s friend. Sonja is completely two faced, as she sat there pretending to be Ramona while firing responses back to Kelly in her pretend fantasy play they’ve arranged here. What the hell is wrong with these women?
Another question I’ve got to fire at New Yorkers, do they not know how filming works? Cindy Barshop, are you a complete moron? They filmed you telling Kelly that Sonja was going to invite Ramona to their little toaster oven party then you sat in Sonja’s home and swore that you never told Kelly that Sonja was inviting Ramona. No you didn’t just swear you said that you NEVER NEVER NEVER said that…while Bravo rolled the video tape of you saying just that. Another good rule of thumb Cindy when the video tape is rolling, don’t wear beige shorts, grey knee socks, black boots and a grey pashmina. The guys with the big cameras following you around are filming you wearing that, did you not know that?
Then we’ve got Idiotic Luann, could she be a bigger hypocrite? She goes to Ramona’s jewelry party, says she is there to support Ramona, but we know that she doesn’t like Ramona. Luann makes a complete fool of herself by saying the party wasn’t what she expected, what did she expect? Personally I really like Ramona’s jewelry but I find it a bit overpriced, for Luann’s purposes, she’d do well to give it a try and completely scrap her entire jewelry collection, particularly the big ugly gold bug she’s wearing on her chest as she’s dissing Ramona’s jewelry. Seriously Luann?
Luann’s other brilliant comment, “you can drink all the wine in the world, it doesn’t make you a wine expert”. We know that Luann, and you can abandon your kids in the Hamptons to go into the city to bang your wine distributor boyfriend, that doesn’t make you a wine expert either.
Sonja moves forward with her toaster oven class for Kelly but instead of inviting Ramona, she invites Luann who apparently makes Sonja nervous? Since Luann is there Sonja actually washes the vegetables before cooking them, then tells us that she’s cooked in her toaster oven for the Churchill’s, I wonder if they warranted clean vegetables?
Finally are there no dictionaries in New York? Kelly Bensimon has no idea what bullying means now we learn that she has no clue what a threat is. Apparently she got a text from Ramona that said, “If you’re not going to support me, I’m not going to support you”. Ok it’s not nice, it’s beyond childish but threatening? No Kelly, you were not threatened. Get a grip!
For all you New Yorkers, it was all in fun, I know New York has kids sports, dictionaries and smart people, we just couldn’t find any of those things on the show tonight. I love New York!
Sonja Morgan definitely has Second Season Disease! She’s lost her mind, she’s trying too hard and she’s making a complete fool of herself while losing respect of viewers. If any housewife could have avoided Second season disease I would have surely thought it would be Sonja but nope! She’s fallen right into Bravo’s trap.
Her speech to Cindy was almost as pathetic as her speech at the Marriage Equality March a few episodes back. Sonja, after her whole half season as a housewife is now going to teach Cindy how to be a housewife. Honor the pecking order and if Ramona Singer comes to your party you damn well better have her wine there, she is the one who brought the guests, after all. Luann and Alex attended only because Ramona was attending? Yeah, sorry, I’m not buying that! I would think Luann would stay away if she knew Ramona was going to be there, I think the cameras dictate the Housewives schedule, not Ramona.
Kelly and Ramona meet, discuss and seem to bury the hatchet. Sonja is there as moral support for both Kelly and Ramona but I think Sonja only went so that she could slap Cindy later. Not saying that’s a bad reason or anything….
Sonja was asked by the ASPCA to throw out the first pitch at a baseball game of New York City firemen who are on their annual calendar. Sonja must have misunderstood and she thought they said she would be cheerleading at the event. Her outfit was ridiculous! Not surprising one of the firemen asked for Sonja’s phone number. Sonja tells us she’s still got it, yes she does, but she forgot the rest of her outfit, something she apparently does several times this season.
Seeing Jill walking down the road to Alex’s front door with her Bed, Bath & Beyond bag was a bit of a culture shock. First I wondered if she was bringing Alex some of her bedding line but then she said it was a gift for the boys. What would she buy for two young boys at Bed Bath & Beyond? Do they sell band instruments there? The discussion was interesting, it was honest and open and I think that Alex was obviously correct not to trust Jill, she said it in her talking head interview but she didn’t say it to Jill’s face. To her face it seemed as though all was right between the two of them, so is it? This is going to be the question going forward, is Alex naïve to even entertain the thought of being friends with Jill Zarin?
Did anyone else catch Jill saying that she’d like to be friends “AGAIN”? This is the same Jill who had said to Alex several times “we are not friends, we were NEVER friends”. The same Jill that said Alex was mingling with guests at a wedding that were “way above her”. But most important let’s not forget at last season’s reunion Jill Zarin gave Bravo an ultimatum, she said she couldn’t film with Alex McCord. Bravo didn’t take the bait, they brought Alex back for another season and Jill lost that little battle. Is this Jill’s way of winning back fans? Her way of ensuring her own survival? Watch What Happens….
Ramona and Cindy had dinner and it was just strange, it was like they were speaking two different languages and I truly think that Cindy is a really poor communicator. She can’t seem to articulate her feelings or explain herself, as an outsider looking in we may have been able to understand to an extent but she really was very vague and wishy-washy. I had to go with Ramona on this one, Cindy’s a strange bird.
Watch What Happens Live
Andy Cohen welcomed his good friend Kelly Ripa on the show, I will say that I appreciate a guest who does watch the Housewives, unfortuantely Ms. Ripa needs to be schooled in pecking order for the New York Housewives.
Kelly chose Luann as top of the NY pecking order, sorry but has she lost her mind? Is this simply because she has a fake title?
Kelly then chose Alex as the NY housewife on the bottom of the pecking order, clearly Kelly doesn’t pay much attention to what fans think.
The poll tonight was that very question asking viewers who was at the top of the pecking order, I was really surprised that Jill took that top spot, her PR people have done a job. Not necessarily a good job but they’ve talked her into trying to make peace with Alex and that has clearly swayed the viewers who forgot that just a few weeks ago Jill called Alex a F****n Bitch. IHJZ Never forgets!
Kelly was ok as Andy’s only guest, I suppose it could have been worse but it wasn’t that great. Andy showed a clip of last week’s after show of Cat Ommanney and Luann, if you haven’t watched it yet, go to Bravotv.com, it’s brilliant!
I’m not sure what Andy felt about it, he obviously liked that he had some tension on the show, it makes it more interesting.
Kelly really put me off with her NY Housewife picks so I sort of tuned out after the first few minutes.
More on the NY Housewives this weekend, what do you think is the NY Housewives pecking order? Sonja seems to think Ramona is at the top, what order would you put them in?
Until Next Time…..
