IHJZ The Real Housewives of New York/ WWHL third post chat

Real Housewives of New York          May 12, 2011

Great news!  Alex McCord does own a brar and she looks amazing when she keeps her girls supported!  She wore a black wig and a Cleopatra outfit to Sonja’s Masquerade Ball, even the other housewives noted that Alex looked great with a little cleavage.  Alex, please keep supporting your girls!

Jill made up for lost time after being gone for a few weeks she got back into the swing of things pretty quickly by focusing on the new girl.  Cindy Barshop was apparently friends with Ramona before joining the housewives but those days are over and Jill relentlessly pursued Cindy like a schoolboy with a crush!  Best we could tell Jill met Cindy just the one time at the art gallery and tonight Jill stopped by Cindy’s for no apparent reason on her way to work.   Insert snicker here.  Jill pretending to have a job was as transparent as her pursuit of Cindy’s friendship.

Sure Jill’s got her Luann and her Kelly but LuLu isn’t crying in her Post Toasties anymore over her 16 year marriage, she found new love and doesn’t need Jill Zarin anymore.  Kelly is all over the place and Jill can’t control the wild card.  Jill needed to ensure that Cindy was firmly on Team Jill and she made good strides toward that goal tonight.

Jill gives us her stamp of approval on Cindy’s house, she has two babies so it is ok that the place is a bit of a mess and all about the kids, once they go off to school Jill tells us that Cindy will fix up her home.  Jill’s kid is off to college, when do you think she’ll fix up her home?

Jill talks for the first time about her extended family telling Cindy that she’s a grandmother, Bobby’s son has two children making Jill a step-grandmother and Jill admits that she would have liked to have more children but doesn’t really explain why she didn’t have anymore.  Sometimes the universe takes over and does the right thing.  

Cindy’s teeth seem to fascinate producers and editors alike, we’ve seen more of Cindy Barshop’s teeth this season than we’ve seen of any of the other housewives put together.  Jill joined Cindy at a cosmetic dentist appointment and made the typical fool of herself by talking over the dentist and Cindy.  Jill’s fabulous circle of friends have to have the right teeth.  Jill actually announced that she and her family are like real doctors.  That’s like saying Kelly is a real journalist. 

Jill and Cindy are the same age but their lives couldn’t be more different.  Jill’s daughter just went off to college and she’s dealing with empty nest syndrome while Cindy is raising 18-month old twin babies with her brother and her irresponsible ex-boyfriend who doesn’t seem to know how to hold a child.  Did anyone else cringe when Cindy’s ex flipped that baby upside down then put her down head first?  

Did Cindy lie about her “situation”?  She seemed to change her story after just 3 episodes when we first met her she made it sound as if she made a conscience choice to have children on her own, she didn’t mention that the baby’s daddy was around in the beginning and she gave him the boot until the kids were a few months old. 

I have to point out one small thing that continues to bother me about the New York Housewives, as Cindy was bathing her children someone off camera handed her a washcloth, she accepted it without any acknowledgement or saying “Thank you”.  She didn’t even look at the woman who handed it to her.  This is like a disease in New York, we’ve seen most of the New York housewives behave this way.  What is it about these New York Housewives, they don’t have the courtesy to say “thank you”, ever? 

Cindy tells Jill about her Four Seasons visit with Ramona and Jill is practically jumping up and down as Cindy reveals her opinion of Ramona.  Jill is grinning from ear to ear as Cindy reveals her opinion, “her core is not good”.  These are five words that really could sum up Jill Zarin over the past three years that we’ve known her.  Cindy’s got the right sentiment but the wrong Housewife. 

Sonja Morgan calls herself the hostess with the mostess, she prides herself on her elaborate and well-attended parties.  Tonight proved none of that is true, at least not anymore.  Apparently it is true about New York Society, once the couple divorces the wife is dumped from all the true social circles. 

Sonja threw a party at the right restaurant but best we could tell there was no food, only cocktails and it took place in the small wine vault rather than in the dining room.  Jill was appropriately impressed to be invited but completely disappointed once she arrived.   We can see Sonja desperately trying to hang onto her Morgan title just as closely as Luann struggled to maintain her Countess status.  Sonja is stuck in the past, she’s forever describing her past life as the wife of a Morgan.  We get it Sonja, you had many homes, traveled the world and lived an opulent lifestyle.  Those days are over Sonja Tremont, you’re back to cooking in a toaster oven and let’s face it, you’ve sort of bottomed out, you’re a Bravo Housewife. 

I cringe when Sonja goes on about her former life, she would have done much better to just show us that she has maintained some class from her former life but alas, that ship has sailed.  Her behavior is so over the top and desperate that it really seems just sad.  She explains that her “houseboy” is a friend’s son from Europe who simply wanted to spend a few months in New York City.  Sonja was kind to let him live there while visiting but she’s made him her servant rather than a houseguest.  I wonder if there are any young guys who’d like to visit Chicago for a few months, I could use a free servant too.  It’s just sad! 

It was great to see Chris March from Project Runway on the show tonight, I adored him on Project Runway, he was one of the few who didn’t get into the drama on Project Runway, he is very talented specializing in over the top dramatic clothing and he did an incredible job with Sonja’s costume.  Unfortunately Sonja decided she didn’t need any bottom portion of her costume and walked around her posh Masquerade Ball with her ass cheeks hanging out. 

Luann and Jill go shopping at the costume store, Jill announces that she doesn’t feel well and only for Sonja would she drag her ass to the costume store. The mean girls tell the store sales lady that they want to look sexy and confuse the poor woman by making fun of Ramona while shopping. 

Luann tells Jill that Sonja has great parties and both women admit to never having been to a masquerade ball?  Luann, the world traveler, the social butterfly, the Countess has never been invited to a Mascqarade Ball?

Luann calls off as too ill to attend Sonja’s party although she sounds perfectly fine and upbeat as she explains she’s simply too weak to join in the festivities.  I’m sure after watching the small group jammed into a wine vault she’s secretly thrilled she skipped the party.  Sonja tries to make us believe that it was her choice to make it a small intimate group when the truth is she wasn’t going to spend the money to have a real “Ball” which is typically made up of several hundred people. 

Jill was clearly expecting a large group and is disappointed that this turns out to be more of a costume party than a masquerade ball.  As I said, Alex looked incredible and Kelly looked ridiculous … oh did I fail to mention that, Kelly looked ridiculous.  Jill tells us that she really likes Sonja but she wishes she would stop throwing these embarrassing parties, they’re not what Sonja tries to make them.  For once, I agree with Jill.  Sonja’s credibility is slowly going down the drain. 

Sonja should definitely get her money back for the half costume, unfortunately she owns it so she’s out of luck but I thought it was classic Kelly to give her advice about Sonja’s attire.  Ignoring the fact that Kelly did Playboy, Kelly dresses like a boy crazy 13-year old with her cooch hanging out at every event.  Who is she to tell Sonja how to dress? 

The New York Housewives just seem to be about cocktail party after cocktail party, tonight Ramona’s wine launch party dominated the second half of the episode.  Ramona’s friend Jennifer who was the bride from episode two was there to support Ramona but she also couldn’t help but gossip a little bit.  If she’s vying to be a housewife, she would have been a better choice than Cindy.  Jennifer chose this moment to tell Ramona that Jill was talking about her behind her back and that Jill questioned Jennifer about why she invited Alex and Simon to her wedding. 

Ramona is upset and immediately snatches Jill away from Luann to discuss the situation and typical Jill denies everything and demands to confront Jennifer.  This is Jill on auto-pilot, this is what she does, first deny, she will automatically without thought say, “I didn’t do it”.  Oddly enough Jennifer wasn’t available to drag into the drama at the moment but Jill found her outside on the street.  That was a bit strange but Jennifer, the perfect Bravo housewife, backed down to Jill’s face and ended the conversation with a truce and a hug.  This Jennifer is a good backstabber, they really should consider hiring her. 

Jill returns to face Ramona with the confidence of having just called a truce with Jennifer, unfortunately for Ramona’s purposes that isn’t going to resolve the problem.  Ramona may look like the drunk, over-emotional crazy person but everything that she says is the truth.  Ramona is upset because Jill is constantly talking badly behind Ramona’s back and to her face, she’s supportive and kind.  Ramona explains that she’s sick of it, she’s been going through this exact same thing with Jill for four years now on this show. 

I have to take Ramona’s side here and not because I Hate Jill Zarin, although I do we’ve watched Jill do this from the beginning and Ramona has watched the backstabbing going on too.  She can’t see Jill’s talking head interviews until she sees the episode but in this instance, she heard from the bride that Jill made a big deal about it at the wedding even asking the bride how she can be friends with Ramona.

The show seems to be trying to paint Ramona as someone with a drinking problem, both Jill and Luann have talked about Ramona’s excessive drinking, but this didn’t seem to be a problem in the past.  Sure Ramona is the originator of “Turtle Time” and we did see her intoxicated a few times but they seem to be implying much worse than a social drinker.  Kelly did talk about Ramona’s drinking on the Season Three reunion show as well which seemed to be the catalyst for this season’s continuation of Ramona as an excessive drinker. 

We’ve watched as Ramona has forgiven Jill time after time for her nasty comments, beginning in season one Jill threatened to take her down for simply not inviting her to a party.  Ramona hasn’t really said anything bad about Jill, in fact just two weeks ago Ramona said how nice it was that Jill sent her a text.  Ramona has always said that she and Jill are good friends who just have disagreements now and then but Ramona’s stance has been pretty loyal to Jill. 

Ramona was one of the people who tried to get Jill and Bethenny back together, I think she was genuine in her attempts but instead of being grateful, Jill slammed Ramona yet again.  I’m honestly glad that Ramona is finally seeing the real Jill Zarin, she seems a bit slow on the uptake.  I think this season is going to be a final showdown between Ramona and Jill, the other housewives will take sides and result in the blondes vs brunettes feud we’ve been hearing about. 

Imagine with me for a moment Jill’s face as she denies, then screams at Ramona during this argument, then picture Jill moments later in the car with Luann as she cries, “She did it to me again”.  Ramona made Jill cry?   How exactly did she do that?  Jill was wrong, she was called out for her bad behavior and Jill crying in the car is supposed to make us all forget what Jill did and feel sympathy for Jill?  This is another example of Jill acting and assuming that viewers are stupid.  Jill watched last season as Bethenny got sympathy as she cried by the car after Jill beat her down verbally.   Jill is simply trying to cash in on this hoping viewers will see her as the victim.  In reality Ramona simply caught Jill’s bad behavior and caught her in a lie, called her out on it and that is why Jill is crying!   Just for another quick hope of getting some sympathy, Jill holds out her 5 for a dollar Koala gift she brought back from Australia for all the housewives and asks Luann to give it to Ramona since she can’t talk to her anymore,  just pulls at your heartstrings, doesn’t it? 

Luann seemed to make it her job in life to make a fool out of Ramona, she was like Barbara Walters interviewing the President of the United States as she questioned Ramona about her wine making process.  Luann thinks that because she’s sleeping with a wine distributor and apparently spends all their time talking about his business, since she has none, she’s an expert on wine making.  Luann has no expertise in wine making and simply listens when her boyfriend speaks, that doesn’t make you an expert LuLu!  Oh and that ugly ghetto gold butterfly necklace also doesn’t make you a jewelry expert either, leave that to Ramona as well. 

I’m glad that Bravo took those extra three months to edit the show or we may have missed out on Kelly shoe shopping and telling us when her daddy bought her the first pair of Manolo Blahnik’s and that her girls love shoes as much as she does.  That scene was priceless.  (yes, that is sarcasm)

Previews for next week show the Housewives discussing a trip to Morocco, it seems LuLu will be the hostess for the trip, although viewers are smart enough to know that this is a Bravo sponsored trip.  Kelly says she cannot go if Ramona is going, personally I’d leave her ass behind but it seems they do talk her into going along.  Maybe she’ll flip out again like she did in St. John. 

Watch What Happens Live

Andy Cohen hosts two New York City Housewives, Cindy Barshop and Kelly Bensimon.  This really looked like amateur hour as Cindy answered questions inappropriately that were meant for Kelly then Kelly reacted very strangely to some things that Andy said.

First Andy introduced tonight’s poll question, which New York Housewife needs therapy? 

As is always at the beginning of the show, Andy tells viewers how they can get involved in the conversation by sending questions to him via Facebook, Twitter or email.  Kelly seemed to think that this was strange and said, “Andy,  I think you need therapy”  A confused Andy looked at her for a moment and said, “um, no”.  We know that Kelly watches the show, we know that Andy makes the same 30 second speech at the beginning of every episode so what was her deal? 

Kelly hasn’t been on Watch What Happens Live since before her trip to St. John last season, if you recall she demanded to be on the show the night the Scary Island episode aired so that she could tell her side of things.  This was really her first chance to discuss it live and what she said was that it was a great season and Bravo took her life and put it on TV, this is her job to entertain and she was very thankful.  Honestly, none of it made any sense but that’s Kelly!

Kelly did it again as Andy did what he always does, he barely listens to a guest’s response but jumps into the next question or a new caller, in this case Kelly jumped in surprise as Andy welcomed a caller.  She really is a nutcase! 

Andy’s three obsessions tonight

  1. Sonja’s costume with the missing panties were shown along with Sonja’s bruise on her bottom.  Kelly was asked if she laughed when Sonja fell,  Kelly said no, she was not happy when Sonja fell, Kelly was very serious about this. 
  2. Ramona Singer was very emotional tonight on this episode and Andy showed a clip of some of Ramona’s scenes.  The strange part about this is that Kelly was laughing hysterically, uncontrollably and it was completely without merit.  Kelly must have a laugh track in her head. 
  3. Promising us a sneak peek of the New York Housewives trip to Morocco, all we saw was Cindy crying about her coat hangers that she claims were stolen.  This scene could have happened in New York or anywhere, how about a REAL sneak peek Cohen?

Cindy was asked about what seemed like a contradiction about her children and being a single parent.  Cindy’s first response, “What do you consider a single parent?” was a bit odd.  Andy brought up the NY Post article that said they were together when the babies were born.  Cindy says she wasn’t hiding that, it was shown on tonight’s episode and that she never planned on handling the kids on her own.  Cindy has learned how to answer without answering, she said she’s lucky to have her children and the children are healthy, happy and well cared for.  Sob and stuff..

Cindy, Alex and Simon in New York

Kelly was asked about her comment about Sonja covering up, the Playboy thing wasn’t what I had in mind, how about all the outfits she wears with her vajayjay hanging out?  The Gotham party last season, for example, apparently it is ok for a 41 year old to dress that way but not a 42 year old?   Kelly didn’t get to respond however, she had her trained monkey next to her Cindy, she responded for Kelly saying that you really can’t compare Sonja dressing inappropriately to Kelly posing nude in Playboy.  Thanks for that pearl of wisdom Barshop!

Cindy really is trying to be Bethenny, it is so obvious.  Typically a new Housewife will make subtle digs or refrain from slamming their fellow housewives but we’ve always had Bethenny who never held back.  Cindy was asked about Sonja and immediately said that she felt bad for Sonja because she judges people based on their social and financial status.  Kelly actually defended Sonja, saying that she was just trying to protect Ramona. 

Kelly goes on to tell us how very impressed she is because Cindy worked at IBM, Andy is looking at Kelly as he’s waiting for more information before he’s ready to be impressed but really, that’s it.  Andy is supposed to be impressed because Cindy worked at IBM.  Kelly brought up her disastrous conversation with Bethenny during Season Two at the Brass Monkey, “ I’m up here and you’re down here.”   The entire conversation goes right over Kelly’s head.

Probably the best question of the night, a caller asks Kelly if she’s jealous of Bethenny’s Skinnygirl success and fortune.  Of course Kelly says no but she goes on to say that it is a testament to Bravo and their ability to make stars out of real people, Kelly says that due to Bethenny’s success, there is hope for all of us.  Kelly really is delusional if she thinks they all have the same shot at Bethenny’s success.  Kelly’s You-tube video’s copying Bethenny all make sense now.  She’s hoping that her half-assed way of doing things will bring her the same success as Bethenny.  Keep plugging away Kelly-bird, someday it’ll happen for you too!  

Kelly was asked if she thought of herself as a cougar and what was the youngest guy she would date, her response was as strange as the entire evening, “Wow, is he asking me out?”  NO Kelly belly, he’s just asking a question, he doesn’t want to date you.  In fact I think it’s pretty obvious that no one does. 

The game was stupid, no need to discuss.  I don’t doubt that Cindy is intelligent, I think she tried too hard to be shocking and slam her fellow cast mates so that she would be viewed as a “tell it like it is” Housewife just like Bethenny.  Kelly is just a complete idiot. 

Simon performed his new song that we heard for the first time a few weeks ago, it sounds a bit different live than it does on the recorded track but as Alex reminded us, all songs these days use Auto-Tune….yes they do! 

The poll results prove that people haven’t forgotten Kelly’s scary island stunt, she took 44% of the vote, Ramona took second at 29% proving that Bravo is trying to paint Ramona much differently this season.  Finally Jill Zarin took third with 16% of the vote.

I don’t think that Ramona would have taken second place if they had asked this question last season, she is a businesswoman and has been pretty successful, she was always a bit of a joke but from season one she’s never really  been viewed as unstable.

Next week Gail King, Oprah’s bestie joins Andy.  Sunday two former OC Housewives, Jeana and Laurie are in the hot seats. 

Until Next Time

    Your thoughts on this show are always exactly the way I feel. Kelly is batshit crazy, Cindy, I do not like, no one likes Jill do they? lol. Ramona is a straight shooter and tells it like it is, like her…and I like Alex and Simon.

  2. FLG says:

    I hope Gail King can shed some light onto Jill’s “my new Harpo family” comments. I hope Andy will ask her some pointed questions about that!

    • housewifeaddict says:

      What is going on?

    • texaschick says:

      I love Gayle. She’s interviewed Bethenny at least twice and really likes her. If she raves about Bethenny on camera to Andy, Jill’s head will explode.

  3. Someone tweeted this to Jill:

    (name deleted) @Jillzarin HEY JILL ! I WAS AT BED, BATH & BEYOND. YOU PAST BY ME WHEN I SAID HI AFTER YOU LEFT THE REGISTER 😦 i was wearing a orange hat.

    Jill shouldn’t ignore her fans. She doesn’t have too many.

  4. FLG says:

    When Jill went to the taping of one of Oprah’s last shows, she got a backstage tour and referred to her “new Harpo family” or something like that. Some of my buddies feel that she was trying to give the appearance that there may be some sort of deal being discussed. Frankly, I don’t see Oprah hiring Jill in ANY capacity. I wouldn’t hire Jill to feed our cat. I don’t think our cat would like Jill. He seems to have better taste than that in his pet humans. LOL

    • housewifeaddict says:

      Thanks. Just because Jill says it doesn’t mean it’s true!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Jill did a similar stunt with a “meeting” at Vogue and chatter about her Squeezers. Give the impression that Vogue wants to use her girdles when she was likely inquiring about the cost of ad placement in the magazine. She really dreams big and talks bigger!

      • FLG says:

        I guess that is part of the reason I watch this show. Living in South Florida, each of the women remind me of people I either know, or know of. I’ve figured out when I meet people that I don’t want to know better….LOL

      • FLG says:

        Jill’s idea about going into a public restroom and changing the skweezy/sleazy couture inside out because it’s reversible? That can get you arrested here. Talk about poo for brains….

    • Mookies1mom says:

      My Mookie would be under the couch in a heart beat if he heard Jill’s voice in person. I usually turn down the volume some when she is on.

  5. FLG says:

    Well, it’s time to sleep for me. I hope everyone has a wonderful evening and sweet dreams. It’s been a lot of fun for me. Thanks for reading my rants!

    • Mookies1mom says:

      Sweet dreams! And I’ll put up with your rants anytime since you put up with me being cranky!

  6. housewifeaddict says:

    Hmmmm- not sure I’m ready for NJ. Caught about a half hour of re-runs. Joe’s DUI and then the beginning of Venice.

    I LITERALLY couldn’t watch. Couldn’t take the girls whining (and I mean the little ones and Caroline), couldn’t take Teresa at all (spank me Joe), and I really couldn’t take Teresa talking about Venice (a city built ON water???). GADS – one of the most amazing cities in the world and they let this motley crew loose!!

    It makes me cringe to think how the NY gals will behave in Morocco.

    • Mookies1mom says:

      I’m not sure I can take Jersey either!

    • Nancy says:

      I spent my honeymoon in Venice so I was mortified when those animals of NJ
      landed there. I’m surprise our Country will let ANY of these Housewives leave the country for filming. Enough already. Esp after what happened on Scary Island would YOU think it’s a good idea for these NY “ladies” to enter a Muslim

    • Cheri says:

      Well I’ve been there and they better cover up, skimpy little dresses just won’t do.

      • Sara says:

        How was your experience if you don’t mind sharing?

        • Cheri says:

          I was nervous the whole time we were there, I just knew a terrorist was going to get us. We didn’t have any problems and the people we met were very nice to us. We were there as part of a group delivering medical supplies and wheelchairs so we had access to some high up people and got to see and do things that probably normal tourists wouldn’t. It was so nice to be part of the wheelchair distribution, when we had the ceremonies to give out the chairs the mothers would carry their children in on their backs so they could get the chairs for them. It just felt good to know you were helping to make their life a little easier. When we would drive out in the countryside you would see guards stopping vehicles checking for radicle/terrorist types as the government was trying to keep those types out. We were never stopped ourselves as we didn’t fit the profile. Our guides were from America but lived there and a few people we were with had also spent alot of time in the country so we were able to get around alright and had the different languages covered. I’m glad I had the chance to go but I would not ever go back given how that part of the world feels about Americans, I just would not feel safe.

          • Cheri says:

            We were there about 7 years ago. We dis get to see a large part of the country while we were delivering the wheelchairs and the one thing that really stood out was how really lucky we are to live here in this country and how much we take for granted (like toilets, in the countryside the have holes in the ground and trust me that is disgusting). We did stay in some nice hotels and went out to a couple of nice restaurants while we were there but these were in the larger cities. They did have a bombing a few weeks after we left, I don’t remember the details of it except that it happened. The country is mostly Muslim but when we were there you could practice your Christian faith but you could not try and convert them to your faith. I was told to dress conservatively before I went and I saw the women that lived there dressed that way too. Some wore berkas and some didn’t but you never saw any one in shorts like you do here. I asked why some of the women did not wear the berkas and was told it just depended on how strict the husbands were. I expected them all to be in them. Itcwas funny to see some of the women in them with their sun glasses on. When we went out in town it was strange to be mainly surrounded by men only and we never saw women sitting in the cafes having a drink.

            • Kukulet says:

              We lived in Abu Dhabi for two years, and my experience was very similar. While there is a large American/British community in the United Arab Emirates, it’s still not easy to live in a Muslim country-especially for a Western woman used to certain freedoms. Gave me a whole new perspective and gratitude for the USA. That said, though, many of the people we met were great.

              • quincyil says:

                My art teacher lived in Saudi for 8 years and would give private lessons to Saudi women at a special center. She told us that the women do feel controlled by the men.

                Amazingly, my Iranian women friends and female inlaws feel restricted by the goverment more than their husbands. In fact, I will I had the power that my sister in law has in her marriage. Whatever she says…goes…

                I know people from many Middle Eastern countries and I think they are wonderful. Of course, they are here because they want the things that we have like freedom and an education.

  7. jeang says:

    I think I am going for the trifecta, not viewing OC, no NY and no NJ. With all the coverage here, I do not need to feed the Bravo insanity of the screaming, bitching witches. I am cleansed, well at least my eyes are.

    • nathania says:

      Yeah, I am not motivated to watch NJ. I can go down the bowling alley or to any bar with a pool table and see a much classier display of taste and manners.

      And OC is so sad right now, it’s a bogus boobs and botox battle between Alexis and Peggy. That’s it.

      I swear it would just be more honest to turn the whole show into some kind of plastic surgery ‘Survivor’ knock off with the ladies competing in most botox injections, largest implants, most normal wanna be model runway walk, faux couture dress line soft porn pose-off, etc, etc, etc. Because it’s just a thinly veiled competition each week. At least NY has dialogue.

      Oh and the husbands could compete in ‘most leisure time’, ‘getting the least amount done’, ‘concealing the most assets’, declaring bankruptcy while losing the least actual assets, who can avoid foreclosure the longest, etc, etc, etc.

        Wholesale ‘Housewives’ blitz

        Last Updated: 3:35 AM, May 15, 2011

        Bravo’s New York Housewives are set to be replaced by richer, glossier versions. “Real Housewives of New York” producers are quietly seeking new cast members, and sources say the network is considering replacing all the women. “They want an entirely new cast,” says a source, “to replicate Beverly Hills. They want rich, rich women, like Adrienne Maloof and Camille Grammer, dripping in glamour and $10 million penthouses. And they don’t want to fake it. They are discreetly reaching out to women who fit the bill.” Earlier this year, the first-season finale of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” was the highest rated finale of any in the franchise’s history. A Bravo rep said, “We are always casting for new housewives in every city.” Asked if the network would swap out the entire cast, she said, “We’ve never done it before.”

        • Nancy says:

          Do you think Jill has seen this? Someone should have a padded room ready for KooKoo when she finds out.

          • nathania says:


            I know Bawby has money but Jill is essentially what is known around here as a ‘redneck’.

            She just has no manners or sense of decorum.

            It’s weird, she definitely acts like a high school bully.

        • HeyAll says:

          I can see why. Andy’s guests on WWHL always commented on how much they enjoyed BH because the women were the “real deal,” meaning they were loaded and lived lavish lifestyles…

        • nathania says:

          after Beverly Hills there really is no reason they shouldn’t.

          I can see them just paring it down to BH and NY and letting the other ones go.

          They should have axed NJ after last season. Bravo needs to decide if they want to have a trashfest like NJ is sure to be, or if they want people who at least pretend to have some class. It’s weird to me about BH now because Kyle Richards has shown herself to be the Teresa Guidice of BH, for all intents and purposes. She kind of brings that show down.

          I do think that replacing the cast is going to be the only way that NY survives. People are sick of Jill, bored with Luann, appalled by Kelly, and unaffected by Cindy. And anyone else on that show gets lynched.

  8. Mookies1mom says:

    I just read the article about B’s lawsuit. The guy admits in his court documents that B fired him after 3 months. But now he wants almost every penny she made off the SG deal. That is complete BS. I really don’t think he stands a chance. I hope B countersues him to the poor house. Not to mention that he has the worst website. It’s so bad it would have been considered bad back in the 90’s! Jackass.

  9. HeyAll says:

    On NJ, is Joe a brother to Jacqueline’s husband & Caroline?

    • Nancy says:


      • HeyAll says:

        Thanks. How are Teresa/Joe related to the Manzo’s?

        • Nancy says:

          Their not. No relation what so ever.

          Which is why I find it strange that the Manzo’s put up with Tree and Juicy’s classless behavior.

            True. They just showed last season’s finale and I realized I didn’t know the relation between them. I guess they’re just friends.

          Dina apparently used to do Teresa’s toenails when she was an esthetician or whatever they call it. Toenail painter. And Teresa has what is called a ‘reputation’ (i.e. she’s a known psycho in those parts) so Dina thought she would be good to have on her team and to bring ‘drama’ to the show I guess.

    A lot of times when y’all talk about Bethany, u talk about twop….so I decided to figure out what in the world that was! Lol
    Woah!!! I can’t believe ppl don’t like B. 😦 and they really really hate her! Im not as smart as y’all and wordy so can’t really give a great statement of why I like her so much….I just do. 🙂

    “Sonja’s costume with the missing panties”

    Lynn i thought it was already established here that she did indeed have on panties
    what was missing was the additional petticoat

    as for Andy not listening during the show
    oh he hears everything alright he just doesnt care what they have to say because really who does LOL
    the show is exactly as it should be a goof on talk shows
    he gets it so do some of the veiwers

    Hi Lynn and all!! 🙂

    Not sure if you have seen this but it would be a relief for all of us who hate Jill Zarin if it was true: http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2011/05/real-housewives-new-york-cast-may-be-replaced

    I hope they take out Jill, Luann, Kelly, and Cindy!! I simply cannot stand them!! And the new girl Cindy for someone who has millions she could surely use a makeover or hire a stylist because her hair and her wardrobe are always so awful and grungy looking!! 😀

    I am certain I’m not the only one tired of hearing the word “class”. I would like to see
    some real socialites on N.Y. I think old money has given in to the glamour now. Do
    people think that the ones on there now are really socialites!

    Also, don’t understand how anyone can watch Jersey Housewives unless they are from

  14. Maggie says:

    I also would love to see Luann and Jill go!
    As for Cindy it’s too soon to know. Would love to see her glamed up but she said she’s a”downtown girl”, guess it’s not her style.
