I Hate Jill Zarin   Housewives News by LynnNChicago 

The Twitter world is a little slow since Quincy and I have been campaigning to get Cat Ommanney onto The Real Housewives of New York for months, they’ve finally joined in!   Quincy and I wrote a blog hoping to get Bravo to cast Cat Ommanney back in April!

Catherine Ommanney


Others have finally joined us:


The campaign to get Cat Ommanney added to the cast of the Real Housewives of New York has begun! The Housewives Hoedown has joined forces with other popular Housewives blogs and some of everyone’s favorite Housewives tweeters to get Cat Ommanney on The Real Housewives of New York. She’s sassy, successful, honest and beautiful, not to mention HILARIOUS! Oh and who can forget her Watch What Happens Live feud with Luann! LOVED IT! Andy, please spare us the boring, hard to like new housewives next season and just throw Cat in the mix!
To join us in the campaign, tweet @BravoAndy @BravoTV and @BravoPR telling them why you think Cat should be the next NY housewife. Oh and make sure you like Cat on Facebook and follow her on Twitter!!

I hope you’ll all take a moment to email, tweet or shout out in any way to Andy Cohen and tell him we want to see Cat back on Bravo’s Housewives!!!  Go Cat!   Lynn~

 As many of you know, Jill Zarin created  posted a video that was a montage of Ramona Singer and according to Jill, Ramona was talking behind people’s back in the video.  I actually found the video to be rather tame in comparison to some of the things that Jill and her brunette brigade spew.  Jill advertised this video on her Facebook page and while we here at IHJZ believe it was created by Jill and her minions, it really does sort of show that Ramona says what she thinks right to people’s faces rather than behind their backs.  Jill’s mindset is that it is civilized to speak behind people’s back….whatever you say Jill.  Our friend @LitSnitch created a response to the Ramona video, it’s really good!  Check it out here:  http://youtu.be/KSfmB55_lBQ 

Nice job Snitcharoo…lovin it!  Here’s another gem by Snitch:  http://youtu.be/WjqDggH_VD8  Snitch and I created the tagline #ItsJillZarinsFault for Twitter and she took it to a new and wonderful place!  lol

This is what Jill Zarin posted on her Facebook:

Here is a video made by a fan showing many, many times Ramona has talked behind my back or bad about me. Is she a hypocrite? Vote above.

Yes Jill Zarin, I’m sure it was a “fan” who created this video!  If they were trying to make Ramona look bad, it really didn’t work very well, they had to go back three seasons to find enough material and really Ramona wasn’t that bad in comparison to Jill’s nasty comments!

Luann did her U-Stream video today and while I missed it, a Twitter friend sent me some interesting information about the live Lulu show:  (of course it isn’t available to view now)

 @goldenpoolgirl  said: 

@LynnNChicago On @CountessLuAnn ‘s ustream, she told me she co-invented Skinnygirl. I referred her to the video where B first ordered it.   and she blamed editing. Wow!

 Also, I asked Lumann if she read @LynnNChicago ‘s blog, but she ignored me.

 So Luann is taking credit for Bethenny’s Skinnygirl Margarita?  Was it before or after Luann asked Bethenny what the ingredients were in the drink?  Honestly this woman forgets that everything she does is on film and that Bravo re-runs them over and over..AND they’re available to view on Bravotv.com, Hulu and a number of other sites.  YooHOO!  Lulu!!!  Those cameras you see surrounding you are filming you….idiot! 


Kelly Bensimon is at it again, running in the streets of New York, doesn’t this woman belong to a gym?  The streets of New York are meant for vehicles and pedestrians but never joggers!  Unfortunately she also had her daughter with her riding a bike without a helmet.  This is the same woman who wanted a helmet to ride a camel in Morocco but apparently she thinks it is perfectly ok for her young daughter to ride her bike, negotiating through vehicles, red lights and other bikers while her helmet is lying in the bike’s basket. 


 Kelly’s daughter Teddi doesn’t look very happy or confident riding in the middle of the street, the white van right behind her is actually frightening but Kelly doesn’t even seem to notice.  At first I thought the van was parked but I really don’t think so, she is too close to it to have pulled in front of a parked vehicle so close to the front of it. 

 If you don’t already but are so inclined, please say a daily prayer for Kelly’s kids!

 Remember Laurie Peterson from the original first season of The Real Housewives of Orange County?  I was always a fan of Laurie’s and then she put her son’s drug problems on the show, that wasn’t cool and I certainly don’t “hate” Laurie, I really wish she hadn’t done that.  I hope that something positive came out of it and it helped some viewers or it helped the kid get clean but it could have made things worse and it could have been part of the reason he struggled so long and so hard to get clean, we’ll never know.  

Laurie has been very active on Twitter lately and had some interesting things to say about the reunion and her former cast mates.

 Laurie was asked if she was going to be on the reunion show:   


No:( We couldn’t reach agreement on $$$ this season. 

  definitely not missing HW’s now, but I do miss the good ole days of virginal reality!

 Laurie was asked about her son Josh: 

Yes. Life is much better for him. He is really getting into producing music.

Josh is fantastic and focusing on making music and spinning. I’d be lying though if I didn’t say I’m holding my breath! xo

Laurie was asked what she thought of Jeana’s getting involved in Tamra and Simon’s divorce?   

Laurie said:  She should mind her own business

 Laurie was asked:  are you still friends with your old cast mates?

Laurie said:  Yes, but i would refer to most as acquaintances vs friends. 

A Viewer said:  there was a great show when you, kim, vicki, jeanna were on it…nothing but trash since barney came on. 

Laurie simply retweeted this one and added a smile 🙂

A Viewer said:  The show would be so……..very much better without Tamera! She has no class. 

Laurie responded:   I had a personal experience with her where she misstated info to others to intentionally cause me problems.

The same Viewer responded:  Oh sorry. I always thought you two were friends at one time. Miss you and George.

Laurie responded:  I thought so too!!!

A Viewer asked:  Have you’ve been approached to be back on the show? Miss at all? 

 Laurie responded:  Yes, every season, but I always chicken out last minute!

I find Laurie to be pretty open and honest, she’s got nothing to lose and nothing to gain at this point by speaking her mind about The Real Housewives of Orange County.  If it is true and she’s been invited back every year to be a housewife I have to give her a lot of credit for turning it down.  I have to wonder if it is her husband’s wishes to remain an EX-Housewife and I think that this couple have enough on their plates.  The divorce rate amoung housewives is pretty high, maybe that is a concern, or possibly George’s business reputation is an issue.  Whatever has kept this family off Bravo, I think it is a good decision.  Laurie isn’t catty and petty like Tamra and Vicki and Laurie got out while the show was still on a high note, and she left mid-season right after her wedding, perhaps at her new husband’s request? 

Million Dollar Decorators by Quincy IL

 Katherine Ireland has a problem. She has been asked to arrange $500,000 of furniture and stuff in the mansion of a pregnant Shannon Factor, the daughter in law of Max Factor. Shannon is a lawyer, not a decorator, but she plays one on TV.  Katherine tells us that Shannon has stepped over the line from shopper to hoarder.
There are rooms of objects, storage areas with objects, truckloads of objects and a garage filled with objects.  Normally, Katherine works with the homeowner from the start and helps purchase the objects, but in this case Katherine has the puzzle pieces spilled out on the floor and she has to put them together.  Katherine goes from brown room to brown room and she knows that the key is to add color.
Martyn Lawrence Ballard is called to the Mexican mansion of Joe Francis, the producer of “Girls Gone Wild.”  Martyn has worked with Joe for 10 years and decorated a $30,000,000 mansion in Puerto Vallarta.  Joe fired the original staff and Martyn has two days to train a new staff with the help of translators.  In several months, the mansion will be filled with celebrities for Joe’s wedding. The house is 40,000 sq. ft.
Jeffrey Alan Marks also has a problem.  He works out at a gym called Crossfit and the men’s show area is pond scum green.  There is a smell of rancid soap.  He has a budget of $20,000 and the taste of a billionaire. Andy the owner is happy that the project can be done in 5 days and over a long weekend. Jeffrey tells Demetre 2 that this she is the project manager because she is organized and he is too busy for such a small project.
Katherine is 1 ½ hour late and you are not late for an appointment with a pregnant Shannon Factor. Shannon shops in European shops, eBay, and auctions.  There is too much stuff, but Katherine has to be diplomatic. The confront each other, but we learn a new term, “POB, Pick Own Battle.”
Jeffrey goes to a Waterworks and tells the salesperson that he want white subway tile with gray grout. While Ross (assistant and life partner) places orders, Jeffrey sits in bathtubs and enjoys planning a Roman bath. 
In Mexico, Martyn lines up the staff and with the help of a translator attempts to train them to care for his decorating masterpiece.  Joe Francis yells and has a history of firing people.   He is a scary man and the staff looks like deer in headlights.  If he has to tell you twice, “You are fired.” Joe does not speak Spanish and it seems few of the members of the staff speak English.
Katherine battles Shannon over the placement of beach chairs (stripped cloth), placement of urns (too big near sconces), and finds a place for a wine table with extra chairs.
Mary MacDonald meets with Konstantine, a Greek artist fried. He is going to create a portrait of Mary for her almost finished decorating book. He takes her photograph, makes a sketch and argues with Mary.  Mary enjoys arguing. She tells us that Konstantine is crazy and passionate. 
Katherine has been working nonstop for hours.  She uses colorful pillows and tries to take her colors from paintings and rugs.  She puts together room after room to the amazement of Shannon. The dining room gets cut flowers for color and the credenza gets an arrangement of items that Shannon purchased. It looks great!  Katherine knows how to place objects. In 5 hours, the mansion has been put together.  Shannon wants to talk to Mary about decorating a beach house which is a decorator’s dream with a price tag of $500,000.
In Mexico, Martyn is dealing with bird shit and dead flies.   He wants the house to be glamorous, sexy and beautiful so he teaches the staff how to place pillows, turn the seam of a lampshade to the back and use a clothes iron on the wrinkles of a rug.
Jeffrey wonders where his two female assistants are and he guesses they are out to lunch. They are actually at the gym bathroom ripping the green tile off the wall.
Martyn is tired of directing the staff and he takes a massage from a woman who actually causes him pain. There is no oil and she keeps cracking joints in a way that looks dangerous.  Perhaps, Joe Francis should fire the masseuse.
Jeffrey visits the Crossfit bathroom and is unhappy. He wants a square drain and Demetre has to visit waterworks to take their sample drain because there is no time to place an order.  Demetre has not order towel bars or a shower faucet.  Jeffrey is not pleased. 
Mary MacDonald and Nathan Turner go shopping, but they both see a box with brass staples and they both compete to get that box. Mary says the rest of the shopping trip cannot go like this.
Mary is in her office and the portrait arrives so she calls Nathan to come immediately to see it before she looks.  Nathan loves the portrait. It has Mary in a stripped black and white dress, her dogs, a hat because she was a millinery when she first started.  Nathan loves it and convinces Mary to put it I her book after he offers to have it tattooed on his body.
The Crossfit shower is done and the owner loves it.  It is black and white.  Jeffrey takes the first shower and if he is asked to do the women’s bathroom, he will insist that there be a tub.

Thanks Quincy, great job as always!  Lynn~

Until Next Time….

  1. kellynnola says:

    Great Recap I watched it too!

    My review of Ramona’s Upper East Side Apartment is now up! Go to kellynola.wordpress.com

    Because there were a limited amount of photos I couldn’t do a long analysis. But her Hampton’s home is next!

    • Error404 says:

      I’m going to have to remember to log on to your site next time I’m on my laptop, as I can never leave a comment on my iPad, not sure why. Any who…. Great site!

      I wanted to add a few comments about ramona’s apt: I love that her large living room has a great mixture of upholstered and light weight movable. Often people tend to fill large spaces with too many large heavy pieces and r has only the one sofa. She has a great mix of lightweight pieces that can be moved around as needed depending on the size of the group,etc…. Also I like how she balanced the sofa with the backless chaise, so it’s still upholstered seating but one isn’t overwhelmed visually with a big piece upon entering.

      I also liked the little dining nook she carved out in one end of her kitchen. It looked very cozy.

    • Je suis un italien a' Paris(V-NY) says:

      I love Ramona’s appartment, and I enjoyed reading your blog too!

      Can you do a Jill Zarin analysis? I think she has exquisite taste, and I would love to emulate her style too. Personally, I love all of the NYC hw’s homes because we are able to catch a glimpse into those high rises.
      I do love Ramona’s home in the hamptons, especially her kitchen.
      However, the Countess’ home in the Hamptons is crying to be redecorated! The wood on the walls was absolutely hideous; all of her furniture needs to be updated too!!!!!

      • Cusi77 says:

        The only things that are close to my taste in JZ’s apto. are the two “Modiglianesque” paintings on her living and the round dark Sculpture by the window. IF those Art works are her taste -IMO- then her taste is exquisite… .

      • Nancy says:

        Did you fall and hurt your head?

      • TLM says:

        I don’t care for Jill’s taste in clothes OR furnishings at all. I was horrified by the renovation of her apartment. It probably is still on the market. It sat for at least a year with no takers.

      • Kats2 says:

        Oh Please! Yes if you don’t mind the smell of dog shit, cramped quarters and colors that would make you miss beige Jill’s apartment is ‘Exquisite”

        IMHO words like ‘Exquisite” should be reserved for the Beverly Hills HW’s.

    • plainviewsue says:

      Loved the review & the apartment. I thought Countless Lulu’s apartment was nice. But def liked Ramona’s better. Don’t even bother with Jill’s. That apartment could cause vertigo!

  2. BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

    Thank you Lynn & Q~
    I missed MMD but did see parts of OC reunion again. Vicky reminds me of Deputy Dog & Trampon is like a rabid pit bull with soul less eyes. Andy Cohen seems to like the vicious bitches for some reason. He must be into pain.

    • ihearttalavera says:

      Yes-Deputy Dog!!!! I think the same thing every time I see her but I can never remember the cartoon characters name. Thank you! The older she gets the more she looks like him too.

  3. IndianaHousewife says:

    Good morning all,

    Quincy, I heard on the weather channel this morning that Quincy Il has been hit with about 18″ of rain. They called your town out by name and I thought “I know her”. Hope you are ok and dry.

    • quincyil says:

      the land line phone linea have been out for days and the city lost comcast internet and tv for a day. Mudslides….

      The creek was over the bridge yesterday morning and I actually got out of the car to look closeley before I drove over it to go to town at 4 AM in a storm… The creek is normall a trickle 25 ft below. We has 6 inches in one and one half hours.
      A lot of corn fields were flooded or flattened by high winds. They dragged a tractor into a filed with a bulldozer so they could plant soybeans and hopefully get a crop.

      No one has been killed so….alll is good…


      • IndianaHousewife says:

        I was living in Cedar Rapids the year it flooded so bad, I think 90 or 91? It was just devastating seeing all of the destruction, and peoples hard work just washed away in a matter of hours. I feel for you and everyone else affected. Best of luck.

        • quincyil says:

          Unlike Jill Zarin, the people here don’t freak out. They try to help each other.


          • IndianaHousewife says:

            Yep, that is why I can never imagine myself living in a big city area where people do not care about one another. I know my neighbors and care about them. I also care about those I do not know. Just this weekend, my husband and I were moving a very heavy cabinet into our house and someone we did not even know stopped his car and offered to help carry it in. That is what makes small communities great in my opinion.

      • Kansas Girl says:

        Wow, they must be desperate to re-plant the fields, to do that. Last fall it was so wet here, they couldn’t get out to harvest the soybeans till very late. Some farmers got so desperate to save what they could, they got the equipment out in the mud. Fields were rutted, particularly where they got stuck and had to be pulled out. My cousin told me this is “mudding out” a crop and it can damage the fields for years. They are so rutted and compacted from this, it takes a number of years to get them smoothed out again. So I’m surprised they’re attempting to plant now.

        • quincyil says:

          Absolutely… desperate… The corn crop is the cash crop that keeps the farms going. Soybeans doesn’t pay as much. The goal now is to break even.

  4. HD says:

    Good morning, Everyone! I didn’t think Ramona’s video was bad at all. Sometimes though I do think Ramona needs to be quiet. Just because you say it to someone’s face doesn’t make it right. Every thing that comes up doesn’t have to come out. Even if its true. Sometimes it pays to keep your mouth shut and your thoughts to yourself. Her “at least I say it to their face” line is a cop out to me sometimes. Just be quiet and here’s a novel idea, don’t say anything!

    If Laurie is smart she better keep saying no. These shows cause too many issues or truly highlight a messy lifestyle.

    • butterisafruit says:

      HD, you’re right about not saying EVERYTHING on your mind. Sometimes it’s best to
      be quiet. My friend will say to me. Why didn’t you speak up? And I tell her, it’s okay
      I put it in “storage”. I have a little storage bin in my mind. It doesn’t fester or stew.
      However it’s there for me and that’s enough.

    • Error404 says:

      I think most of us agree with you about keeping our mouths shut, which is exactly why bravo hasn’t hired any of us! LoL

      I think Laurie stays off because Tamra is just Danielle with a bleach bottle. Dealing with pathological crazy is just exhausting.

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      I agree wiith you on not stating everything you feel or think. Ramona willingly admits she puts her foot in her mouth and is of the “oh well” school of thought. While inducing many cringe worthy moments, I would choose the devil I know, than the devil that loves the job, works overtime and will not stop til world domination. I see it as Ramona being a unintentional assasin, while Jill is a cold blooded contract killer who will do alot of pro bono work or just bill you later. LOL Yeah, they both kill but one of them is a workaholic!.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        The keeping stuff to yourself is something we try to teach our children. Everyone has opinions but knowing when to express them is learned. IMO, Ramona never truly learned when it is appropriate to speak your mind because as a child she lived in fear of her father’s abusiveness. Not a pass because now she is a grown woman and should know that what she says carries responsibility. Interestingly enough, Avery seems to have learned not to be “out spoken”.

    • TLM says:

      I agree HD. I know many people said they loved Cat because “she was honest”, but just because she blurted out whatever she was thinking, I felt, didn’t necessarily mean it was good. I thought she was rude and even cruel at times. I still will never get over Ramona’s telling B she had no friends and would probably screw up her relationship with Jason too. Ramona comes out with plenty of things like that. I haven’t seen the video of her you are referring to above.

      I’m often tempted to speak my mind to family members, but the fallout would be worse than just going along and acting like nothing is bothering me. I have struggled with this recently and vascillate between the virtues of being totally honest with people, versus being cut out of their lives or severely limited contact. I have decided to err on the side of just not saying anything. It is a shame though, when you feel you can’t be honest with people you’re supposed to be close to and say, “This was hurtful to me” without being labeled a complainer or just being left out of things.

      I also don’t want to recreate what happened with my family. The result of the Gorgas & Giudices having a feud is that the kids don’t see each other and basically lose relatives. This happened to me because of a feud among the adults when I was a kid, and I lost out on knowing 2 cousins I could have spent so much time with. We lived so close by and I never even knew it. Tried to reach out in recent years, but it’s as if it was too late. I got the sense they blamed me for what happened with the adults.

      • MAMAZ says:

        I’m not a Cat fan either. I think she’s rude and obnoxious.
        I would love to see Tabitha from Salon Takeover give the smackdown to LuAnn and JZ. She’s someone who speaks her mind when necessary but in a really good way. She isn’t a bitch just to be a bitch. There is a point to what she says. She’s also very smart and worldly.

      • IndianaHousewife says:

        TLM – I completely understand how you feel. I have a sister and brother and we do not talk at all. Our children do play together or know each other. I often wonder if I am doing the right thing, I have and still do strongly disagree with their actions in the past and do not want to have that negativity in my life. There has been no apologies or acknowledgments of these actions. The problem with me taking a stand against them could impact my children later in life and this is what makes me wonder what is the best approach to take. I try to have faith that since my intentions are not to cause harm things will work out ok.

        • TLM says:

          It is sad. I hope that your kids can at least get together (it sounded like you meant to say above the children do NOT play together). I know that in a few years, the parents will be gone and it will be just us kids in our 50s, and that we should forge friendships for the sake of the future. But I can’t force other people into a relationship.

  5. butterisafruit says:

    Good Morning everyone.

    Why doesn’t Kelly run in Central Park? Everyone runs in Central Park even Madonna. There is no reason to be dodging that traffic. Especially with that little girl.

    • Error404 says:

      Becuase everyone runs in central park. Running in traffic is Kelly’s ” table flipping”. Some people feel negative attention is better than no attention, and acting like a lunatic keeps Kiki in the press. Kelly has to be notoriously cheap because her DIY approach to PR is really cheesy and low brow. Someone of her status should have hired representation. She may think the beer and chicken wings keep her “authentic” but she just comes off as another dime a dozen ” truck driver with tits”

      • T-REX says:

        Also Taxis and private car services just LOVE having to dodge humans jogging in the middle of the street~ I remember one cabbie merely complaining about the bike riders, he said if they didn’t have cameras everywhere he would sideswipe a couple of these to get them off the road and out of there way. Not very nice, but the guy wasn’t Ghandi he was just a man trying to make a living without having to run over someone to do it.

        • Error404 says:

          I’d be more sympathetic if cabs didn’t regularly swerve into the bike lanes without notice to pick up last minute fates. Also, the pedestrians who think the bike lanes are actually “stand here to hail a cab lanes” are annoying to. Not to mention all the vans who think “nice, they created all of these park to unload lanes all over the city! A bit narrow though”. I used to commute by bike years ago but gave it up, too many headaches. NYC cab drivers tend to have the diomatic skills of a middle eastern dictator. LoL

      • TLM says:

        If Kelly thought Alex was a vampire in kabuki makeup, maybe she thought the street was an Olympic track she was running on. The woman has a very tenuous grip on reality.

      • Nancy says:

        Truck driver with fake tits.

    • PJ says:

      Driving in NY is stressful enough without having to deal with a crazy woman running in traffic. Putting that little girl in traffic on a bike is just stupid, it’s dangerous. What an idiot.

      • Butters'Mom says:

        PJ sorry I didn’t respond yesterday re your comment about Dr Who. I’ve tried to get into it but I always feel I am missing something and I don’t want to watch 20 years worth of videos to catch up!

        You are right about Kelly, she is simply put an idiot.

    • nathania says:

      re: Kelly…

      something I did not understand from the show:

      Alex is talking and kelly starts mouthing “trip of a lifetime”

      Just out of curiosity, is it out of Kelly’s price range to take a trip like this herself? I am a bit confused about that. Why don’t these women travel more if they are so impressed with this one trip. Would it have been outrageously expensive? More than the trip to St. John (clearly i am untraveled and I know nothing about stuff like this)?

      I just kind of wondered about that constant repetition…Morocco would not be my first choice for a ‘trip of a lifetime’ but if Bravo weren’t footing the bill wouldn ‘t someone like Kelly still be able to afford something like that?

  6. coocoopuffs78 says:

    I’m not sure if anyone else has posted this but this is very interesting. Have a great day Ladies!


    • HD says:

      Uh huh. I knew something wasn’t right when she said he is living with Eddie.

    • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

      I wonder if she knew before the reunion?
      Now Trampon can start screeching at her & Vicky can say it’s none of her business…

      • HD says:

        @Baabee, I bet she knew which is why she kept her mouth shut when all that child support stuff came up. Also estranged wife means still married right? Vicki would do well to keep her mouth shut from now on too. She leaves what seems to be a perfectly good man to date this trash. Okay. Free Donn back in full effect. He needs to get out of that house and although I do like Vicki I hope he gets every penny he deserves.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          Donn needs to get his half of their assets before Vicki spends them on the deadbeat, love tank filling, cheating scum! Sadly, I have no problem with Vicki dating Brooks because she deserves the lack of respect guy he has been shown to be.

      • jillz68 says:

        She did know. According to the article she wrote a letter in support of Brooks getting out of jail two months before filing for divorce. What was the guys name in Cabo (Don lookalike)? This Brooks also goes by David.

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      DANG Coocoopuffs you are blowing my mind! We all pretty much know Vicki was a cheater, but this hooker was sending letters in her lover’s defense while she was still married and cohabitating with her husband. No wonder her trips were longer and communication was shorter. She had a deadbeat dad honey on the side. Vicki and Tamra no longer amaze me as they are both torn from the same dirty oiley cloth. That Vicki the adulterer has Brooks “staying” with Eddie for appearances sake is ridiculous. Most likely her daughter objects to him living there and Donn could use it as ammunition in their public battle. There is no fool like an old fool.

      • HD says:

        I am always one to admit when I am wrong…Ya’ll called the cheating thing and I didn’t want to believe it but yes, here she is writing a letter on his behalf and I am sure she was already seeing him. I wanted to believe she just worked a lot. No, she was working and putting in work.

        • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

          Hi Hannah~
          I am sorry because I know you have a soft spot for Vicky but she always made me annoyed for some reason beyond her work ethic.

        • Amber...Real Wife says:

          I feel the same way about Gretchen. I know she’s made some ILL choices but I still like her. She’s just a girl who wants to enjoy life and the men that come in it are always out to take of her. Her beauty, youth, fame and money.

          • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

            I have no ill feelings about Gretchen except her choice in men. But at least she is trying to build a business for herself & doesn’t keep bad mouthing everyone.

        • coocoopuffs78 says:

          I’ve always had a huge respect for Vickie’s work ethic and the fact that she was self made but this woman clearly has some issues. She looked so run down and haggered at the reunion that I felt a little sorry for her. Tramra has been such a bad influence. Thank god Brianna has been the voice of reason.

            • Amber...Real Wife says:


              How could the student teach the teacher who’s a Rhodes Scholar? Vicki has been doing her thing long before Trauma came into the picture. The only thing she showed Vicki was if you’re gonna leave, spin it for tv before you go. Lay it on thick so you’ll be able to garner some sympathy then take off and be free to be with your lover publicly, all while acting as if it is a brand new relationship.

              • coocoopuffs78 says:

                “TRAUMA”…..I love it!!!!!! I’m gonna have to agree with you on that one. Vickie’s shady ways may go back a lot further than we think.

          • Wicked says:

            What work ethic? She wasn’t working she was having an affair/commiting adultry.

      • T-REX says:

        Also, I believe Vicki’s first ex-husband was blasted for alluding to the fact that she had cheated on him as well, seeing the behaviour she has shown in numerous photos kissing other men, and now the actual letter written to her new lover, while she was still married to Donn, pretty much prove she is one trashy whore. Who knows how many other men she has “hooked up” with on her business trips to get her love tank filled, since she freely admits she wasn’t letting Donn near her tank.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          Vicki seems to be one of those people who have to have someone waiting in the wings relationshipwise. Donn “rescued” her from a “bad marriage” and wisked her and her children to California and apparently made it very difficult for her kids to have a relationship with their birth father. Karma is a bitch and Vicki didn’t choose wisely with Brooke, but had him lined up and waiting for her once she got the courage to leave Donn. Her kids are unhappy with her with good reason – instead of working with Donn on their relationship – mommy just moved on without thinking about how and who she was hurting.
          As for her “work ethic”, I have met and worked with “insurance professionals” and none of them work until midnight, hire their kids friends or take their staff to professional association events!
          Vicki’s version of loyalty has always bothered me.

        • ITA-How could Donn fill up Vickie’s love tank when this whole Brook’s been putting a little sugar in it.

    • AZ Girl says:

      Hey way to pick’em Vicki. He a dreamboat.

      • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

        I was wondering why she looked so freaked out when Andy Cohen said they were going to bring Brookes out & then said only kidding. Poor Donn is well rid of her.

    • cdnfillie58 says:

      This just makes my day…now if only something just as juicy would come out about Eddie…i would feel truly blessed LOL

    • TLM says:

      Holy crap. I guess Vicki and Gretchen have more in common than once thought! I can’t believe Vicki would ever get involved with someone like that. She seemed smarter from a financial perspective. She’ll end up bankrolling this guy. She advised Gretchen to look out for her finances but she isn’t being very smart for herself.

      Did the Gunvalsons ever do therapy? There was no talk about that at all. Tamra said, “They’ve tried everything,” but therapy was never mentioned. It seemed there was a breakdown in communication between them that therapy might have helped.

      • MAMAZ says:

        Thanks CooCooPuffs. That’s some big news.
        Didn’t Vicki say recently that she might have been wrong about Slade, that she thought maybe he and Gretchen were really in love? I can’t remember if it was on the show or just gossip. Anyway I thought it was strange that she was back pedaling about Slade since she hated him so much.
        Now I know why. Her new BF is a deadbeat too!
        Why do smart women, even though I don’t care for Vicki I think she is smart, believe the cheater will never cheat on them?
        I feel bad for Donn getting dumped for a low life like this guy.

        • mariareads says:

          Way to go Vicki. I knew she was stepping out before she had those papers served to Don! And what a catch! A dead beat dad. Wonder why Tamra let’s him stick around and stay with Eddie (paralegal whatever that Jeana called him which made me LOL) Explains why Vicki never said a word about Slade. What a crack pot! She is having a major mid life crisis. Let’s see: Seems to be constant Don who loved her or a dead beat dad who already is putting the screws to you for support of some kind. You can be sure he’ll be looking for money too. What a complete mess Vicki is. No wonder Brianna is angry! She knows the guy is no good. Vicki needs major psych help to figure out what she wants. When she said “I’m going to be 50, I’m old” I had to laugh. Most of us don’t think we are old when we turn 50. Unless you are looking for a 30 something boy toy to play in the tub with. I’ll take my stead as a rock 50 something husband any day over all of these slugs these women are digging up. The plot thickens for Vicki, who continues to cross herself whenever she feels like it. Think God loves cheaters Vic? I mean really. If you are out of love, get the separation and wait a few months before you jump into the nasty pool. Gross!

    • No wonder Brianna is so disgusted. Not only does it appear the relationship began before she and Donn separated ( I still think Brooks is the dude we saw in Mexico and that she brought her lover on the trip) but she hooked up with a DEADBEAT. Brianna and Micheal and VICKIE are very aware of the type of pain and rejection that .causes.

      • Nancy says:

        This is the sort of thing that will change the relationship between Brianna and her mother for life.
        It can’t be easy for Michael either. Vicki is going to regret this big time.

    • sue says:

      Does anyone know if brooks is the guy from Vicki And Tameras Cabo trip when they were in the pool doing body shots?

  7. IndianaHousewife says:

    About this news on Brooks, does anyone remember when Vicki was talking with Donn about a business trip and she would be gone like 6 weeks or something? I can’t remember where she was headed to. Does anyone remember?

    • arabracer says:

      Maybe that’s why she couldn’t visit Donn’s sister- because she was with Brooks ? Also, I could swear Brooks was in the pool with Tamra and Vicki in Mexico. All this “work ethic” talk and “God dosen’t like divorce” is just a cover for her to party it up !! Busted!!!

      • MAMAZ says:

        Yeah it seems like Icky is more like Trampra than I thought.

        • IndianaHousewife says:

          Another thought, I seem to remember in Alexia’s blog she said in reference to what Jim does for a living that Vicki should ask Brooks as he had been in meetings/discussions with Jim in regards to business.

          Slade, Jim and now Brooks, all have a shady side to them and it is starting to look like they are getting together to share “how-to” tips with each other. Would love to know the background on Micha and Eddie.

      • I’m with you, I think Brooks was the dude in Mexico.

      • mariareads says:

        I thought it was the guy from Mexico too! The one who looked like Don, or so Trampa said. Busted is right!

  8. GoldenPoolGirl says:

    Lynn; I am so honored to be a part of your blog. I copied Bethenny about Lumann’s claims of co-inventing SkinnyGirl, but haven’t gotten a response. Would love to hear her rip on that one. Anyway, great blog as usual, and thanks for the mention.

    • T-REX says:

      You know what Bethenny probably won’t even bother with a response, because she is laughing her way to the bank, if Countless lu-mann had anything to do with the cocktail, she would have gotten a lawyer and sued her, like that management company tried to do. Bethenny is above dealing with a fake Countless whose ex-husband “bought” his fake title since as has been pointed out on numerous occasions, France has not had an aristocracy since 1789, in addition he wasn’t even part of the Royal linneage in a formal way any way. It’s a bought title.

      • plainviewsue says:

        Can’t Bethenny sue her for libel? How dare Countless insinuate that she was co-creator. Never did it come up at all in all 3 seasons that Bethenny was on RHONY. Why didn’t Lulu ever say anything? I reallycannot stand her, she’s reached the hatred of Jill!!!

        I would love to hear B’s take on the season. Lynn, since she follows you, can you direct message her and hear what she has to say?

        • T-REX says:

          To be honest, the whole inicident reaks of JZ and her minions. I am sure she said to Countless, that she should take some credit because didn’t she sit there across the table one time when Bethenny was ordering the drink and ask the ingredients in that drink, well Countless under JZ land rules this means you are a party to that product. Just like Countless and JZ taking full credit for creating the great B, like she was a nothing before she got on the show and it was Bawby who suggested her for the show not those 2 bozos!

    • SoutheastVA says:

      At the very least, Bethenny should have her lawyers issue a ceases and desist notice and request a formal retraction. She can’t afford to let stuff like this go. People making claims on her brand is a big deal now that so much money is in play.

      • SoutheastVA says:

        I meant cease and desist. I sound like Trauma of RHOC!

        • MAMAZ says:

          Lord love a duck! The Countess helped invent the Skinnygirl Margarita?
          Now I’ve heard everything.

          • sue says:

            Wait a second, I remember the episode in which B Introduced the drink to LuAnne…I know the countess is getting a little “long in the tooth”, but seems shes becoming really forgetful of her words and actions lately!!!

    Well Q I started liking Millionaire Decorator last night. Especially with Kathryn Ireland and her client Shannon. I have never seen so much stuff in a house. I wish they never let Joe Francis out of jail. Did you notice how much he was sweating compared to everyone else. I know it is hot an humid in Mexico but Joe Francis was high on something. Who wears sunglasses 24/7? Eventually when I get my boys out of college I plan on doing some work on this old house. I am picking up some ideas from watching.

    • quincyil says:

      It’s easy to write unilke Platinum hits. The decorators have interesting personalities and they are playing for the camera.

      I think Million Dollar Decorators will be a hit!

      • nathania says:

        me too! They are definitely ‘personalities’ and the clients are just as much as well.

        It really does look like a hit although ‘platinum hit’ might be a miss. I think they need other judges, and I am not sure that Jewel is enough….Kara Disomething is a legitimate choice but I thnk they should have had at least a few more judges.

  11. quincyil says:

    When Bravo cancelled DC, I felt that they had unfairly punished the housewives for the actions and words of the Salahis. I would have asked them back and included some of Staci’s friends as they appeared to be interesting when they shared in the one scene while discussing Staci’s family lineage.

    Cat could easily move to NYC. I suggest moving to DUMBO in Brooklyn. It looks like a great neighborhood.

    For the new people I am repeating my letter to Comcast. Comcast purchased NBC Universal from GE. I also would like Comcast to put me on their board so I could push the Syfy channel to show scifi. LOL.

    Here is my letter. I will send out a tweet to my tiny band of followers on twitter too. They are small in numbers, but quality is better than quantity when it comes to twitter.

    Dear Comcast, the Boss of Bravo and Andy Cohen
    This is America and we fans should elect Cat O to become a new housewife on “The Real Housewives of New York City.” Bravo is just a corporation. We are the American fans of Bravo and we should have one housewife in Manhattan that tells it like it is.
    Every franchise needs one honest housewife. Bethenny Frankel was our Greek Chorus in “The Real Housewives of New York City.” When someone was outrageous, Bethenny was there to point it out to us in a clever way. With the loss of Bethenny from the cast of our NYC reality show, there is no strong foil to Jill Zarin and the other stars. Alex McCord is too nice and has hives when she tries to deal with the women of Manhattan. Alex gets shocked at the outrageous statements and become tongue tied. RHNYC desperately needs a witty firecracker that simply won’t take “Bullocks.”
    I can see it now. Jill Zarin begins to discuss whether or not it is correct to wear ivory dresses to a wedding. Cat O would tell Jill Zarin that it was better than wearing your mother’s draperies. Jill Zarin says to Cat O, “You never were a real friend to me.” Cat O replies, “Who are you again?”
    Cat O has a memory like an elephant. She knew the comments from every cast mate at the reunion of DC. She has lists in her head.
    Cat O would understand European history and would not doubt inform The Countess that a little event happened in 1789 called The French Revolution. There has not been a French Aristocracy since that year.
    Cat O would be able to handle Ramona’s outbursts with humor. Ramona tells Cat O that she doesn’t care to listen to her. Cat O tells Ramona that she should turn off her hearing aid.
    Cat O would share quality time discussing men as I am sure she has had as many good times as Sonja Morgan. They could discuss the differences between Spanish and French lovers. The Countess might join in that conversation as it seems she has experience in the region also. Kelly can tune down to a zero during those discussions and play with her hair while she thinks about looking for pigeon feathers in Central Park.
    Cat O could also visit Bethenny’s show as a housewife friend who stops by to try Bethenny’s new cocktail mixes. I’m sure Cat O is an expert on good cocktails. Both Jason and Bethenny will love Cat O. Cookie will love Cat O. Cat O can throw balls for Cookie to run after.
    In off season from the RHNYC, Cat O could go to Beverly Hills for luncheons at Villa Blanca. I don’t think Taylor would be allowed to threaten Kim Richards in the presence of Cat O. Cat O would definitely go London on Taylor for doing that.
    I will go to the top with my suggestions, the fans of Bravos Reality Shows. Let’s simply call for an election and vote Cat O into a housewife position in “The Real Housewives of New York City.” If this fails, we fans might go America on the big shots at 30 Rock. That should get their attention.


    • katlg says:

      Hi Q, my prayers have been with you this week.
      I did not like Cat O on DC, however anyone who can take LuAnn and Jill down a few notches is truly welcome in my book.
      I don’t mention Kelly and Cindy because there is no match

      • quincyil says:

        I don’t like any of the OC women anymore. Screaming over each outher for two hours exhuasted me.

        • housewifeaddict says:

          I came home and turned on the TV, then left the room. When I came back my husband was staring at the screen with a dumbfounded look on his face as they were all screaming. Needless to say we watched something else. What a trainwreck. Andy must have had a huge headache.

          All of the ladies looked like they had practiced the head tilt, mouth open look of “I can’t believe I just heard that” in the mirror for hours. Frankly they all looked the same on the Tamra couch – plastics, over processed, and brittle. Gretchen has been looking funny all season – could she have had a facelift?

    • midwesthousewife says:

      My household has been filling syfy’s inbox with pleas for decent scifi broadcasting – plenty of old show to put on if they have no new ideas! Also mailing BBC to show actual British broadcasting (though I do like the repeating of Battlestar). Channels like these were created to cater to a specific group and then they mess with the formula to appeal to the masses and tank the whole formula! I don’t get why they can’t be happy with success and over reach. Mobile typing is sooo hard!

      • SoutheastVA says:

        I love wathcing Dr. Who and Being Human on BBC America. I like Torchwood while it lasted. I hated when BBC America cancelled the weekend Eastender omnibus. I’m stuck watching shows four years behind on my local PBS. I agree that the SciFi channel should actually show SciFi.

        • T-Rex says:

          Since I am also a Scifi nerd! Torchwood is going to Showtime, Starz or HBO! I get all of these and have seen the promos! I have been a Sci-fi fan since forever. I remember that Chi-Town stations back in the 70’s(showing my age) played the old series of Star Trek. My hubby is addicted to some of the series on SYFI on there now

        • Southeast VA – Grew up on Doctor Who and was thrilled they brought it back! You are probably aware (but just in case you aren’t) Moffat – the lead writer – does the New Sherlock Holmes and they were great. Only 3 per season and only one season shown on PBS so far but you may enjoy them as you like the Doctor. BBC America’s responses to me have been less than satisfactory. They claim the public would prefer them to carry American SciFi shows (Star Trek!!!) over BBC shows. But why would I turn on BBC to see American TV? Especially when I can find Star Trek on 5 different American channels at any given time? Sorry, I got off on a tangent.

          • SoutheastVA says:

            I’ll have to check out the Sherlock Holmes series. I agree with you. Why would I turn to BBC to American shows. I was even upset when I kept seeing the promos of Dr. Who in America. I love my country but I dont’t want Dr.who trapsing thru the White House or the desert here. I want to see other galaxies.

    Great blog once again Lynn & Quincy. Thanks. I would luv to see Cat vs Jill in NY. I wonder if Jill would have the guts to come back if Cat joins NY.

    There is something very funny about Luann in that pic above. Not ha ha funny, but funny odd. I can’t put my finger on it. (if I could I’m sure I’d want to wash it) I”ll have to keep looking at the pic. I wonder if her Ustream will last longer than Jill’s. Jill seldom goes thru with anything. Nothing new there.

    PS–Thanks you guys for the kind words on yesterdays blog. ♥

    • T-REX says:

      ME TOO! Could you see JZ trying to spin her web of lies, and there would be Cat with a big all can of Truth spray to throw at JZ to show her what a two-face, bald-ass liar she is!

        I think Jill would dump LuMan in a New York minute and then befriend Cat.

        • T-Rex says:

          Oh that would be intersting! Watching Countless try to figure out how she was banished to Scaryland with KKB-psycho. Then watch as Cat systematically dismantles JZ like a cat picking wings off a bird(or Vulture in JZ’s case) . Each confrontation of JZ lies would unravel that new face JZ is sporting. This would be so fun! Team CAT!

I hope the ladies give Jill some hardball questions. Jill will be tired so she may be caught off guard easily. I will try and catch a video of it when I get home from work.

        I watched it and I KNEW that I shouldn’t. First of all, what show is Leah Remni watching that she finding Ramona to blame for everything. I wanted to scream! Why didn’t anyone take Jill out on all of her lies.

        I really really really hate Jill Zarin, and I will never watch her on a talk show again. She tweated that she would like to be a sub host on the show. I tweated and said if she ever is, I will never watch the show. Truth be told, I never watched before!

        • nathania says:

          gah! leah remini IS Jill Zarin. I can’t believe anyone would willingly subject themselves to her, she is just a trashy loudmouth scientologist idiot. Soooooooooooo gross.

          In case people don’t get how awful she is, she was on Howard Stern once (don’t ask me how I ended up watching this episode because I don’t watch that show) and she actually shut all those jerks up on that show and left THEM speechless. They couldn’t get a word in edgewise. She is like obnoxious on steroids…so of course she is going to defend someone like Jill because water seeks it’s own level.

          • chismosa says:

            glad you called her out. I really dont like Leah Remini. Still have to watch the Talk. Figures she’ll be Jill’s new bff. From there Jill can get to Chelsea Handler and Jennifer Lopez (both good friends of Leah’s)- JLO being a secret Sci (just like the Smiths). Hate her and loathing her cult she follows only intensifies my hate for Leah.

            • chismosa says:

              ps Jill probl loves Leah because she is Jewish- her mom is- so Jill loves that Leah is truly Jewish like her. I am gagging

              I think Chelsea will not deal well with Jill. Chelsea is a straight shooter and she has never been a game player from what I have seen. She is fearless, witness her recent quip about Angelina Jolie…if Jill has any sense she will steer clear of Chelsea

              • plainviewsue says:

                So that’s why Jill said her girl crush is Chelsea Handler!! She knew by saying it she would get in good with Leah. I’ll say this for Jill; she does her research. What an ass kissing horror of a woman Jill is!

Ramona is similar but she is not as relentless. One thing I like about Ramona that she rarely gets credit for is she will let it go. She says her piece and she moves on. She might throw a dig, and then she’s done. Blip, blip, it’s over. I think that’s one reason she’s so easy to forgive.

  17. WindyCityWondering says:

    Why is Jill expending so much needless energy to “set the record” straight? What happened to owning it? A simple apology would be sufficient for her actions because at this point viewers know she lies, know she attacks her castmates both on and off camera and hasn’t changed one bit. The rest are living their lives because their obligation to Bravo is finished (except for the reunion taping) for the season. Jill should expend her energy to getting her life in order, enjoying her family and summer in the Hamptons, instead of defending her horrible behavior. She needs to put the iphone down, stop tweeting garbage, stop with the super secret exclusive blogs and enjoy her family!

    • Error404 says:

      I assume that all of the current Ramona bashing is because r one ups her in a coming episode so she’s pre-spinning to try and cushion the eventual blow to her fragile rep.

      I also think that traditionally, the reunions are a chance to push aside all truces and apoologies and to reopened old wounds best left untouched. The HWs have a habit of wiping the slate cleanb efore a reunion and restarting years old arguments from the beginning like it’s ground hogs day.

      • quincyil says:

        This is why Bethenny left. They dish it out, but can’t take the hits. Bethenny could withstand the blows to a point, but I think Jill’s disloyalty was too much. I think Jill suported Kelly and encouraged Kelly to stand up to Bethenny on Scary Island. I would love to be able to have a conversation and find out what really went down with those women.

        • Jezzibel says:

          I think Bethenny could handle and deal with Jill…the deal breaker for her was Kelly comming back and her knowing how unstable kelly is, Bethenny did’nt want to deal with that or have kelly around any aspect of her life, so much so she refused to guest star on RHONY

      • T-REX says:

        Yep, I like the Ground Hogs day reference, because I think JZ and Ramoner have brought up the Tennis match from Season 1 at every single reunion show. I am sure that JZ will work into the conversation at some point that B was homeless and JZ had to let her live with her and Bawby, which of course was NOT the situation but in JZ’s Delusion Land it was. I know Andy won’t do this, but someone needs to be a YouTube montage together for every scene of JZ saying we are “done” regarding the B fall out and all the stuff about the message on the phone, if Andy really had some cajones, he would put one together to show JZ it wasn’t Ramoner that broke up that relationship. It was JZ with a great assist from Countless!

        it’s interesting, isn’t it, that Jacqueline never dropped her friendship with Teresa even though Teresa is 100% responsible for Ashley ending up with an assault charge.

    Jill had weather delays last night and Bobby was looking into private planes and a imo so Jil could sleep. I have a private plane pilot here that I want to volunteer. That guy went up in his jet as a tornado was about 3 miles to the north last weekend. The sky was rotating and I watched him take off and go south. It was a small jet.

    This is the perfect pilot for Bobby to call when the commercials jets have delays due to weather. Jill will never have to sit and wait in an aiprort again. Plus…I want that idiot piliot out of my area so his plane does not crash into my house.

    Just trying to help Jill with her fabulous life.


    • Error404 says:

      He should have been looking into an immodium so we all could sleep. Her verbal diarrhea keeps us up at night.

      • quincyil says:

        How many lives should be endgangerd so she can get home to Bobby and Ginger Zarin.

        Ginger wrote to her and said she missed her mommy. You will miss mommy a lot more if she is killed in a plane crash.

        The weather has been horrible. The government knows what they are doing when they give weather delays to airlines.

        • Error404 says:

          Oh she was just copying that scene from the devil wears prada. Jill is a phony and I never take anything she says at face value. The storm was just an excuse to tweet non stop and keep her name out there and Jill always stays on message ” I’m so rich my sugar daddy charters me priv planes” zzzzzzzzzzz

    • T-REX says:

      Holy Crap, is their a twitter link to the new Fiasco of the private plane. Oh, and what idiot would be arranging for a pilot stupid enought to ignore FAA regulations and take off in a plane, oh, unless your a wily idiot that would think life might be a bit easier if she were to take up that offer of an idiot pilot!

      • MAMAZ says:

        Don’t private planes flying from an airport have to be cleared to leave the runway just like commercial planes? Unless Bawbby charters a cropduster to take off in the middle of the desert I don’t think it will matter.

    I am wondering how Vicki and Trampra are taking the news about Vicki’s boyfriend being in arrears on child support
    and also cheating on his wife and fathering a child with his gf. It appears Vicki’s twitter is set to private – is it always this way. Let’s see how Trampra spins this crap. Once again Karma is a bitch! Warms my heart this am!!!

    • quincyil says:

      Her twitter was open last year. I found her boring.

    • VAgirl says:

      Since Vicki sent the judge a letter on behalf of her new squeeze 2 months before she filed for divorce, I doubt this is news to Vicki. She’s an idiot to get involved with the bozo. And I thought she was a smart person. If she’s that stupid, she deserves to get fleeced of her hard earned money. Next think you know, he’ll be working for her. I’m with you, HD. I liked her and kind of took up for her all along, but now I see the light about her. I hate when that happens.

      • SweetValley says:

        I especially hate how she played victim in her divorce, when really, she had a man on deck. Just balling her eyes out. Nobody mention Donn! It wasn’t about Donn.

      The letter proves that Vicky already knew he was a deadbeat. You gotta love the internet.

      Heck if I were single I’d be on that list.

    • We Can Never Be Friends says:

      Donn cheated with Vickie and helped her take the first husband’s kids to California so their dad lost contact with their father. I don’t feel a bit sorry for Donn. What goes around comes around.

      • We Can Never Be Friends says:

        Oops, so their dad lost contact with his children. Yes, he could/should have kept in contact but from reading the blog with his side of the story, Vicki made that nearly impossible and turned the kids against him making them think he didn’t want a relationship with them. I’ve been waiting for karma to hit these two cheaters.

        • Wicked says:

          What blog with his story?

          • We Can Never Be Friends says:

            There’s a blog (can’t remember the url for it) that Vicki’s ex husband has telling his side of things. Hope someone has the url. It’s VERY enlightening. I really hope Brianna now gets together with her father because she’s seeing the person Vicki is just like he did. It’s sad that he didn’t get to raise her but it’s great that maybe now they can reconcile. That would be a happy ending for at least two people in Vicki’s life. Same for Brianna’s brother making it 3.

          • TT in OC says:

            You can read his side of story here:

        • I don’t find him very credible.
          That’s every dead beats story – their mom turned the kids against me-their mom wouldn’t let me see them. bla bla bla. Mean while, he wasn’t paying child support.

      • T-Rex says:

        I totally agree! Donn knew Vicki was married with kids when he met her, courted her, then boot-scooted those kids out of state and they beyotched because the guy didn’t send child support and didn’t see his kids. The kids weren’t able to see their dad, they lived across the country and Vicki and Donn didn’t let him have much contact. Much like “stockholm syndrome” if you tell small kids that their did is shite, and doesn’t want them, they grow up believing that lie. My sister-outlaw(because she is not IN with me) played this stupid game and now he is 25 and finding out everything she did and is trying to mend his relationship with his father and totally hates what his mother did. Like you said karma baby, Karma

    Attention Fellow Members of the IHJZ Soothsayer Club which includes anyone here:

    Jill Zain’s medium sent her a tweet asking if Jill has looked at her new web site. Jill tweeted back:

    No computer! RT @JRMedium “@Jillzarin @SkweezCouture @jillzarin @TheTalk_CBS Good luck Jill!I know you will do amazing.Did you see my new site JenniferRogersMedium.com”

    You would think the medium would have felt the twitter storm brewed up by Jill about Delta taking her computer the other day. She needs to read Jill’s tweet lines and keep in touch with Jill’s feelings.

    I predict that no one will ever return the computer.

    • butterisafruit says:

      I once found a note book. It was full of telephone numbers,
      estimate figures, sales contacts etc. My husband called
      the owner of the book. His card was on the inside cover.
      When he was told that we had his book, his first question
      was, How much do you want for it. He expected to pay
      to get his own property back. Of course we being in business
      knew the value. And just wanted to get it back to the right

      Jill shouldn’t have been so public with the lost computer.
      People love to hold these items for ransom.

          The other thing is. It’s an electronic device, left on a plane. Security might be checking it to be sure that it’s legit. There are a lot of crackpots, flying the friendly skies.


          • cabbie413 says:

            people steal high end electronics and data devices all the time .. so i’m guessing its a fellow passenger who saw it and picked it up. You just have to be more responsible with your items these days. that laptop, if it was indeed left on a plane, is gone.

    • klmh says:

      I found an i-phone on a plane a few months ago. The kid sitting beside me told me he would sell it on Ebay. Thankfully the owner had his telephone number inscribed on the phone, so I called and sent it to him. I didn’t trust the airlines to look into the matter.
      I would imagine Jill will be able to find it on Ebay, if she wants it back. 🙂

Then when they were leaving the house, Mario gave each one a hug and told them how pretty they looked. It just made me smile….it was so great. I bet those girls were so excited to get to be on TV!
    Yes, I certainly can enjoy watching the HW without the dark ugliness it has turned into!!

  26. IndianaHousewife says:

    I saw this article on Radar it says Taylor is getting really outspoken with her castmates. I always thought she was very passive aggressive. I really hope she doesn’t ruin RHBH, it has become one of my favorites!


    • It looks like Taylor’s PR people are trying to spin this and get her name out there.
      They must think no one watched the show last year. Taylor avoiding conflict? Hahahahahahaha good one. I put her repulsiveness up there with Jill Zarin. And now we are suppose be believe she went to “therapy” to help her become more assertive? Even better- what about her little pill problem.

      • Nancy says:

        Taylor is the spokes person for Pass/Agg.
        She is just trying to make sure she isn’t fired from this Bravo gig because it’s their only source of income.
        Her and her husband are con artists. . No better than Teres and Joe/Alexis and Jim.
        “Taylor” needs to check herself into the Rehab Centre she owns.

        • I agree, they really are disgusting.
          Her husband slick talks people into giving him money ‘invest’. Then part of the deal they conjure up with the 3 party business give Taylor a cushy job.

          It’s a good thing I don’t have money otherwise I would live in paranoia of being taken by people like them.

    • nathania says:

      that has to be the stupidest article I have ever read…Taylor Armstrong, the ‘peacemaker’? Taylor Armstrong, known for ‘turning the other cheek’?

      Translation, she is what she looks like, either tweaked or coked up out of her mind and unable to control her mouth.

      I agree with the person that said it was a pre-emptive strike of spin.

    • We Can Never Be Friends says:

      I bet Taylor is gunning for Adrienne for not going along with the lie that Adrienne is Taylor’s daughter’s godmother. The look she was giving Adrienne whilst nodding her head – classic body language for “agree with whatever I’m saying and we’ll clear it up later in private cuz we’re such great buddies.”

      • The fact the she is targeting Adrienne of all people makes this story even more laughable. Out of all of them Adrienne is the least likely to raise her voice or get caught up in petty nonsense.

  27. California35 says:

    I am not saying that I like Ramona telling people mean or inappropriate things to their face, but I also don’t think that showing a friendly front to people and talk behind their back is any better.
    Jill defends herself saying that talking behind peoples back its better because it is the right thing to do, because telling people to their face is mean, because we should have two faces…AND turn things to Ramona. Ramona in return says that she does to their faces.

    (I am having difficulties explaining myself, as always)

    I don’t think either one is rights, but I understand Ramona’s point of view.
    First of all, Ramona is hurt that Jill acts (scratch that) says, that they are friends, but talks about Ramona criticizing her and everything related to her any chance she gets. She also makes a comment here and there to Ramona’s face, but Ramona brushes off not giving it importance. After so long, she just had enough and is not interested on Jill’s “friendship”.

    On Jill’s defense…hhmm.. uuhh.. I got nothing!

    On my defense (for defending Ramona), I also don’t like Ramona’s old approach of saying whatever came to her mind offending people. Notice I said “old”, it’s because it looks to me like she is looking at herself and is trying to improve that. I don’t know when or why it started (maybe with her “renewal” season), but it does look like she is trying to have the filter she didn’t have before. Jill on the other hand, is getting worse. On this case, she is not even apologetic about the MAIN issue Ramona is talking about…that SHE IS talking behind her back and that it HURTS her feelings to think that Jill is a friend when she is not.

    • Error404 says:

      Personally, I have trouble swallowing the whole ” ramona is so horrible” routine in general. It’s always like “she’s so rude! Do you believe she said ‘i think you’re too hard on the jews’ right to hitler’s face? I mean, who does that! ” etc… I mean, I watch the show too, and if I’m suppose to get my tar and feathers all ready because she said Simon was weird for coming to a girls only party, Luann married a much older man, Jill storming out of a fashion show because she didnt have front row seats was ungracious, Jill having her own company prominently displayed at a charity event she was running was déclassé, Kelli breasts were rumored to be corrected due to their wonkiness,e tc… then I’m sorry but I’m gonna haveta take a rain check on the public stoning this time. Call me when she says something truly rude like ” women should always marry men who love them more than they love the men”

      • We Can Never Be Friends says:

        You’re so right. Ramona actually stands up to the bitches. A lot of people wish they had the cajones to say things to someone’s face instead of rehearsing the “scene” in their heads and wishing they could think of a great line or come-back that fast.

        yeah, I remember these tactics that Jill is using…

    I like Cat, but I’m not totally convinced she’s the right person for the job. She seems to get flustered fairly easily and being that LuAnn is such an experienced baracuda, her foe needs to be both quick-witted and unflappable. The only time I’ve seen Lulu successfully put in her place was when Bethenny went off on her at that fashion show. But as much as I enjoyed watching that myself, I also remember Lulu getting a lot of sympathy over that while Bethenny generally got villified. At that time, the vast majoirity og commenters were calling Bethenny “out of control” and she was accused of acting like a rabid dog, etc. SO, LuAnn’s opponent has to be someone who can dole out her STFUs and insults in a calm, unperturbed manner….much like LuAnn herself usually does it. I actually think Lisa Vanderpump could do the job, but she’s probably too nice and would need a lot of deliberate provoking first. LuAnn would prolly sense this and keep kissing her ass, plus Lisa wouldn’t be willing to move to NY anyway. Maybe Joan Rivers? She’s quick on her feet at least. How about that chick who is on (WAS on?) “The Talk” but used to play the wife on The King of QUeens? I forget her name but she always seemed pretty tough and unflappable. I dunno. Maybe Cat will have to do for now.

    My God, Laurie Waring looks like a different person nowadays. I hope she’s happy with that new face. I woulldn’t be. I was going to post a comment asking if anyone knew what Laurie meant by vaginal reality but then I reread it and saw that she actually said “virginal reality” LOL!

    I hope bathtubgate has finally blown over because there were so many comments left on the last posting that my page kept freezing up, which prevented me from replying to anything, and I really thought a few times that my head might explode. Sadly, all the over the top criticsm made me reevaluate and question the way I’ve been negatively judging Jill Zarin, and that’s the last thing I want to see happpen as I truly do hate that woman! Please, people, don’t ever make me feel sorry for Jill again.

    Vicki? Yup, she is icky.

    Last observation: I went and read through the RHoNYV thread over at TWoP and had to laugh. I haven’t posted there in ages (not since I was banned, I suppose) but I still recognized a lot of names there, and it seems like all the posters who HATED Bethenny so badly have suddenly turned all their ire toward Alex, Ramona and Sonja. I used to give them a little credit, thinking that they might feel they had a legitimate beef with something Bethenny did or said. Now I can see they’re just…well…pathetic, brunette-worshipping A-Holes.

    On Cat to NYHW – I have mixed feelings.

    If they bring her in, that will mean that they will keep all or some of the ladies I rather NOT see coming back. If those ladies don’t come back, she won’t be there for the reasons we want her to be there for, you know to take those ladies dooown 😛 BUT if those ladies or some of those ladies come be back any ways, bring CAT too 🙂 replace Cindy with her…or Cindy and Kelly.

    I like her, and I would like to see her back doing something. At NY since that is what we are trying to do here :-). OR can you imagine if Bravo creates a Housewives season with a mix of wives from all the cities we have seen? I think we talked about this before. Bravo can create one with all the fan favorites, or one with all the villains, or the two.

    • nathania says:

      I don’t think it’s going to happen.

      She pissed off Andy Cohen by not licking Lou Ann’s faux royal behind. And Andy does not seem to be the forgiving type.

    • Error404 says:

      Isn’t this basically what happened with Kathy griffin and the view. I don’t fault Jill for trying, but I do snicker at her unrealistic view of herself and her “charisma”. It’s like Henry Kissinger deadpanning ” I’m the straw that stirs the drink!”

    • nathania says:

      oh how I wish she would. She will sooooooooo not be able to hang in that environment. The problem with her right now is she is quasi famous, by name only, and no one outside fans knows her rep.

    Why does she think a simple guest spot means she’s up for a co host position?

    • T-Rex says:

      Because JZ lives in Lunatic-Delusion JZ land! Bethenny got her own Bravo show, LunaticJZ lobbied for one and was turned down. Bethenny may have been offered a talk show or as a guest host to a talk show, so JZ has to lobby for that. She is so JillousyJealous of Bethenny and has tried everything to try and ride those coattails. Remember the whole Skating with the Stars situation, JZ-lunatic tried to insinuate that she was asked first, NOT. She wrote a book that tanked, and from what has been shown has sold less than 10,000 copies, while B’s books have sold out and 2 are the Bestseller list with another book deal on the way.

    • mariareads says:

      She is delusional. She has an impression of herself that is inflated and false. People like here never see who they really are. They just ARE. She can’t shut up.

Maybe if they are creating a show on what NOT to do or be? Unless is about something to do with her bad behavior and the show has many (many many many many) more people and she ONLY has a small little part on it….I DON”T think she is involved.

    • mariareads says:

      Maybe she’s pitching an idea to them. Just because they listen doesn’t mean they will do it. Oprah has the ear of just about every famous person out there. She doesn’t need nobody Jill for a show on OWN. Nobody would watch!

      • California35 says:

        I am watching behind the scenes of the final season of Oprah on OWN. There is no room for Jill and her shananigans.

        Oprah talked about Tina Fay, and she talked about her with admiration and some of the things she said made me think of our B. Not the same and I am not comparing Tina Fay with B…my point is that they both work hard…Oprah said that Tina has worked hard and that whatever she works on make it big, etc etc. Oprah admires hard work, admires both man and woman who work hard on whatever it is. Do I need to say more?

          She said the viewership was up 20% and that everyone was glad that Bethenny was gone.

        i liked that question too, because you know it didnt come from Rodney Peete lol I bet Holly doesn’t care much for Jill and that was her way of giving Jill a dig. Let’s face it, if Bethenny was on the show today, they would’ve been asking about her 120million dollar SKINNYdeal and what she has planned next, etc etc. I highly doubt they would’ve brought up Jill Zarin.

        It’s funny that during an interview with Jill, Bethenny still comes up lol. Bethenny is STILL RELEVANT and she hasn’t been bothered with this show for a year now. Go Bethenny!

      • quincyil says:

        Jill and the brunettes do to Ramona what Jill complains we do. We hold Jill accountable. Jill and her team mates hold Ramona accountable for past words and actions even though she attempted to renew in season 3 and has shown growth in season 4. I listen to Ramona’s words and I believe she is in therapy. She says things like, “I feel…but that not be neccessarily true…” She tried to stay on topic in the discussion/fight with Jill Zarin in the red room of the riad. When the temp went up, she ended the discussion explaining that they were not moving in a postitive direction. All of this sounds just like Bethenny’s therapist.

        I bet the good doctor of BEA has lots of celebrity patients.

      I did laugh, though, over Jill being so upset that people have been saying her car was leased instead of owned. If the other ladies hadn’t cut her off, she probably would have started talking about her ownership of the Hamptons house next!

    can you believe she plugged her book? lol … i sent this tweet out when i read that she asked ppl to tweet for a cohost spot lol

    BOO @Jillzarin @TheTalk_CBS yuck! why would you have jill on your show – she is a low down dirty shrew who wrote fake +reviews on AMAZONgate

    btw, i want it to be known that I don’t follow her, i refuse to give her one more follower

    Jill tweeted a pic of the gifts she brought to The Talk. Classy.


    • Error404 says:

      Don’t retweet that to Kiki, she may have another breakthrough.

    • 2Stupid says:

      Hey Boston, I wonder where she got that idea? Maybe from the evil mongrammed bags Bethenny brought all the girls on Scary Island. I hope no one on the Talk felt threatened, LOL. Jill may end up with a restratining order. None of these women have an original thought. Countess co-creating Skinnygirl margarita my you know what. End of rant!!!!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Picture is gone! What did she bring. My theory is Jill brings a present everywhere to everyone so that in her mind they will 1)like her and 2)owe her!

    • Nancy says:

      She is trying to be Bethenny again!

      • BostonGirl says:

        Nancy: The 7th Game is on! Hope the best team wins, if that’s the Bruins! Believe…..I couldn’t afford to pay for one of Jill’s lunches, even if she does pour diet coke over it!

    • FLG says:

      I’m still out of town, but got a few minutes to scan a couple of the IHJZ blog entries. Boston, I want to send you my condolences about your mom. I lost mine a few years ago and still miss her terribly. The pain doesn’t go away, but it will start to get a little easier. Just wanted you to know I’m thinking of you.

  39. kelley says:

    I always liked lea. I’m upset that she is on team brunette.

    • NYCer says:

      I wasn’t really buying that. Leah didn’t make any sense in what she said. I think she was prepped by producers for the segment, but that she is not really team Brunette.

      I also hate how proud Jill is that this season is Brunettes vs. Blondes. She “loves the dynamics” this year.

      • boston02127 says:

        I wish one of the ladies on The Talk would of asked Jill…..”why is it always you vs someone”

        Jill doesn’t get it. When you’re always fighting with someone maybe it’s you. My mother had a saying about that………”when every kid in the sandbox doesn’t like you it’s not them it’s you”.

      • smompy says:

        I guess maybe I’m glad I missed that show. Despite the scientology thing, I’ve always like Lea, even though I coudn’t think of her name an hour ago…and she’s best friends with Chelsea Handler, which I take as a good sign. But if she ever really joins Team Brunette, she is dead to me.

        BTW, didn’t someone uncover a secret scientology connetion to one of Jill ZArin’s alleged charities a year or two ago?

  40. Amy Matheson says:

    Just read all the articles and comments about Vicki’s new beau being a deadbeat dad – worse than Slade since Vicki’s man actually served jail time .

    I’m thinking this is a good time to cue the clip from this season with Vicki screaming “pay your child support!!! pay your child suppooooooorrrrt!!!!”

    Haha ha! Poetic. Justice.

    When your own daughter can’t stand your behavior anymore, then maybe it’s time to look in the mirror instead of slicing up your castmates Vicki.

    • SweetValley says:

      I wonder if any of the other housewives knew about this at the reunion. They could have really burned both her & Tamra. Not that I like Slade. I’ve hated him since day one and wish he would just go away. I’d just love to see those two shut up.

    • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

      I agree with you totally~thanks for saying what I have been thinking..:)

    • Melissa says:

      Wonder how it feels like to have your love tank filled by an ex-con, she’s gotten so sleezy since hanging out with Barney. I feel for her kids.

  41. boston02127 says:

    I’m glad I didn’t get up to let the cat out when Jill came on The Talk. In those three seconds it would of taken me to walk to the door and poof Jill’s segment is over.

  42. boston02127 says:

    Jill’s tweet~~~ Going over notes with producer on @TheTalk_CBS in beautiful green room.
    Jill, Where they little yellow post it notes?

  43. Thedesigndiva says:

    Guess those producers KNOW all about Shrill…all of about what..3 minutes and she’s DONE…LOL LOL
    What was up with Leanna( sp )…..I use to like her..but now she’s against Ramona !!! And to say that she should be a HW on NY…yea right…
    I must say..good thing I am not into daytime TV…that show SUCKS SUCKS SUCKS…….
    That is all

  44. WindyCityWondering says:

    IMO, the team mentality has never set well with viewers. Jill wants sides, teams, gangs while most viewers want interesting women doing interesting things, going interesting places and wearing really cool clothes! And then I got to thinking about fans. Cool people have fans because they are cool. When someone has to beg for fans, promise super secret, exclusive stuff and calls non fans haters – what does that tell us? Jill had some acceptance S1 but has steadly declined in viewers’ opinion ever since. Jill continues to attack her castmates both on screen and off screen. Jill is past the point of a successful turn around in the viewers’ eyes. Exactly what will it take to get her off the show? Does Bravo really intend to allow her to ruin the franchise?

  45. butterisafruit says:

    Let her assistant co host. She’d never be able to add
    anything to the conversation, she’d try to be top dog.
    Holly will destroy her.
    Yeah I want her there. I hate that show, perfect place for her.
    And I say that in the nicest way.


  46. TLM says:

    Who else will be skipping Rocco DiStupido this evening??

  47. jeepers1941 says:

    So vicki’s new boy toy is a dead beat dad, well, well, well. Wonder if Tampon will be on his ass like she is on Slades. Just goes to show ya, people who live in glass houses should never cast the first stone. Oh, I bet when Donn heard or hears that, he will be laughing his butt off. Serves her right, but vicki really should remove herself from Tampon, seriously. You are judged by who you hang out with, so if she wants to be known as a trashy bitch, then by all means she should continue her friendship with Tampon for sure. ICK

    • Noreen says:

      This is explains why Vicki started writing nice things about Slade in her blogs a few episodes back.

      • Eve says:

        I noticed that and I also noticed she was fairly quiet in part 2 of the reunion when Slade was on.
        I wonder if Tamra going to call Brook’s 2 ex wives.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          Exwife and girlfriend he got pregnant before he divorced his wife. The youngest childe is not even two years old! Vicki got the whole set of luggage on this one.

  48. Nancy says:

    Just thinking…
    Why isn’t Jill flooding the internet/talk shows etc re: Bethenny’s lawsuit?
    I bet that Ally’s laptop was NEVER missing. It was Jill being Jill to gain attention.
    Jill has to know how many enemies she has out there. Why would she twitter (to the world)
    that it was missing when in reality this could be Jill’s worst nightmare come true. Can you imagine
    what could be in there? She is soooooo pathetic. She wants the world to know what a fabulous
    life she has but a third grader could figure out that “happy” people don’t act the way she does.
    And this goes for LuMan as well.

    • nathania says:

      it wasn’t Ally’s laptop that was missing, it was Ally’s top, maybe Jill got confused.

  49. Some of Jill’s tweets to the ladies from The Talk:

    Jillzarin: @LeahRemini @TheTalk_CBS thank u for “being so kind”!! Hah! Happy birthday! Follow me! http://twitpic.com/5c18hn

    Jillzarin: @MrsSOsbourne we are meant to be friends. I adore u and love your furry family! We r coming to see u soon! Follow me so I can dm u! http://twitpic.com/5c1a0y

    • quincyil says:

      Jill is a connector.

      • cabbie413 says:

        Jill is a “fucking bitch. She’s socializing with people SO above her” … ring a bell? Jill Zarin is a projector .. not a connector. Everything that she likes to call out and/or ‘hate’ in others, is exactly who she is.

    • Nancy says:

      Sharon will have nothing to do with Jill. Trust me.

    • Nancy says:

      Who told Jill that dressing up like a nurses aid looks good on her?

    • AZ Girl says:

      I can just hear Sharon….”Ozzy” the most horrific woman was on the show today….Jill…um something or other….and you would not believe what “hostess” gift she brought…she brought us all GIRDLES! “WTF” says Ozzy…”what the F###K was she thinking love?” “You are as beautiful as day we met”. F###King B###tch…..
      “Thanks Ozzy, I love you too” says Sharon…

      • Nancy says:

        AZ Girl,
        How true. As you know Ozzy has had troubles staying sober for years.
        I have met him several times at AA/NA meetings in Hollywood. I think he is the funniest
        person I’ve ever met.

        • AZ Girl says:

          The guy is a gem….he is really funny and able to laugh at himself first a foremost.

          • Debbie says:

            Ozzie really loveslovesloves and respects Sharon. That makes him even more of a gem. Sharon and Ozzie went through a lot over the years but today they certainly seem to be a caring, loving and strong couple. Their kids Jack and Kelly gave them some terrifying moments but at the end of the day they too have emerged stronger and sober.

      • California35 says:

        LOL – I can TOTALLLLY see that 😛

    • California35 says:

      Thanks for the pictures… I am glad she stoped with that stupid ponytail….

      Okay just to clearify – I just put my hair in a ponytail, so I am not really knocking the ponytail

    • nathania says:

      Maybe Ozzie will bite her head off.

  52. AZ Girl says:

    Leah Remini is the most obnoxious person on the planet. She does not like Ramona because she drinks alcohol which is against her Scientology beliefs. Leah believes in Zenu…enough said.

    • Nancy says:

      Scientology doesn’t believe in “shrink’s” either. Remember what Tom Cruise said to Brook Shields
      Re: her PPD? Jerk!

    • nathania says:

      I will probably burn in hell for saying this…

      but people like Leah Remini should definitely drink.

      a lot.

    • smompy says:

      I believe it’s actually spelled Xenu! The Scientology thing is very weird to me, but Mormon beliefs are weird to me too, yet I’ve never met a Mormon I didn’t like. And isn’t America supposed to be a country where everyone’s individual religious beliefs are respected, even the ones we find weird?

      Anyway, I don’t know Lea Remini personally, of course, and I have yet to watch The Talk, but she was very funny on the King of Queens, and she’s been quite entertaining and enjoyable on every interview show I’ve seen her do. She’s always been very self-deprecating and both her co-workers and her longtime friends (e.g. Chelsea Handler, Kirstie Alley, Valerie Bertinelli, etc.) have all raved about what a great, generous and loyal person Lea is. And she certainly seems to be an honest person….which means, ipso facto, she’s NOT like Jill Zarin at all. Maybe it’s her accent or vocabulary people are reacting to? Why she’d support Jill Zarin on this show, I have no idea, but hopefully she’ll come to her senses eventually.

      • AZ Girl says:

        You are right it is spelled Xenu. Scientology is not a religion. It is a cult.

        Comparing them to Mormons is like “Apples to Oranges” Mormon faith is based on christian beliefs. Mormons believe in the New Testiment but also acknowleges the Book of Mormon which gives the history of Joseph Smith and his findings the golden tablets. Arizona is second to Utah in population of those of the Mormon faith. Though I disagree I still respect their faith.
        Scientology is another animal which promotes disinfranchising families.
        If you would like more information on Scientology and their beliefs you can google “Operation Clambake” and that should help.

        • Nancy says:

          AZ Girl,
          All Scientology is, is a pyramid system. The rich get richer and the poor gets exploited.

        • smompy says:

          LOL thanks for the help, but I’m already pretty well aware of the bizarre history of Scientology. That being said, calling Scientology a cult is still not a statement of fact but only an expression of one’s personal opinion. Many people feel that Roman Catholicism, Orthodox Judaism and various Pentecostal religions, etc. are cults as well, and they can throw out lots of anectdotal evidence too. Of course that doesn’t necessarily make it true. Whether we all like it or not, the U.S. government does in fact recognize Scientology as a religion. It enjoys precisely the same recognition and tax exempt status as the Church of Latter Day Saints, therefore my comparison was not really an apples and oranges thing. And when it comes to what constitutes a genuine religion, why should it matter whether belief in the New Testament is included or not? I know Mormons believe in Jesus Christ. As a matter of fact they believe that Jesus Christ lived right here in America. They also believe that all native Americans are the descendents of the lost tribes of Israel. And they also believe that a failed farmer named Joseph Smith found some golden tablets in the woods in upstate New York (tablets which were conveniently invisible to everyone but himself). And they believe that by placing these invisible golden tablets inside a hat and then peering down into the hat while wearing a pair of homemade spectacles (which utilized solid rocks for lenses rather than the standard transparent glass usually found in eyeglass lenses), that Smith could read the secret, , divine writing incised into those invisible golden tablets which nobody else could see. Are these accepted Mormon ideas really so much more rational sounding than the idea of someone believing in Xenu?

          My government and my culture tell me to have respect for the spiritual beliefs of others, and my religion tells me it’s not my place to pass judgment on people just because they don’t share my own beliefs. The bottom line for me is that I truly believe that it’s possible for an individual…Lea Remini, for instance…to have some very strange ideas regarding spirituality and yet still be a perfectly decent human being. I was mainly reacting to your assertion that she was a bad person based on the fact that you don’t agree with her spiritual beliefs…i.e. when you wrote, “She believes in Xenu…nuff said” If Lea Remini had a history of doing bad things, then I’d have no trouble agreeing that she was a bad person, but using someone’s personal spiritual beliefs to label them a bad person felt unfair & un-American to me. Obviously you see things differently. But I still think you’re a good person:)

          • nathania says:

            god, I think she’s the most obnoxious, nasal-voice, goose honking level 5 clear yada yada yada crap blah blah blah on the planet.

            I can’t stand her almost as much as I loathe lou ann.

            I think scientology is a cult too regardless of what the govt. says. I really don’t care what the govt says. there is wayyyyyyyyyy too much evidence and first hand accounts out there of all kinds of intimidation of members for me to have any respect whatsoever for the cult or any of it’s cult members. But if anyone *has* to be a member it might as well be Leah Remini.

        • Alip says:

          I was raised in a very mormon family. While I choose not to participate my family is still very involved. My father recently retired from working for the mormon church after 34 years of service. A little of the information regarding mormons posted is a little off. The important thing to note is that mormons are christians. The full name is The church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

          There are a few really beautiful special things about the religion. Scientology is so very different than anything related to mormonism.

          • AZ Girl says:

            Thank you for your post.

          • Smompy says:

            Yes, thank you for pointing out my error in typing the full official name, “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.” I hope nobody was offended by that as it was not my intent. I was probably typing too quickly and not paying enough attention. As I’ve stated several times, I understand that Mormons are indeed Christians. I also said that I’ve never met a Mormon I didn’t like, and that was the truth. I have no beef with that church and its beliefs. And I wouldn’t be surprised to discover you were also correct about my being “a little off” on some of the info I wrote about historical Mormon beliefs, as I was relying on my own memory and not copying verbatim from Mormon texts. However, I’ve read enough Mormon history to know that what I wrote was basically factual, and my reason for writing it was to point out that many respected religions (including the LDS) have some beliefs which might be weird-sounding to most people, but IMO the followers of that religion should still be respected. As you were raised in that environment, I’m sure you’re also aware that for decades after its founding, faithful Mormons were harassed, attacked, driven out of their homes and even murdered, all because the so called “Christian” majority at that time decided that Mormonism was nothing more than a cult. Some people even believed it was the work of the devil, and many American Christians of the era used the fact that some Mormons were distancing or separating themselves from certain family members in order to follow Joseph Smith and/or his ideology as a justification for labeling the religion a cult and for attacking its followers, burning its temples, etc. If it wasn’t right to hate/belittle someone for having what were then considered weird (Mormon) beliefs…and I think we’d all agree it wasn’t right…then it isn’t right to hate/belittle someone for having what are now considered weird-sounding (Scientology) beliefs. To me it’s that simple.

            And I’m sorry, but since I was discussing what makes a religion a religion in this country, I don’t believe it was actually especially important to note that Mormonism involves Christianity…even though I did indeed note that several times. If being a true “religion” in America required some element of worshipping Jesus Christ, then Judaism, Buddhism, Jehovah’s Witnesses, etc., etc., etc. would not be considered religions here. But they are. And, like it or not, so is the Church of Scientology. Again, like it or not, LDS members and Scientologists share the same government-recognized religious status in this country. BTW, that and that alone is why I originally compared the two.

            I’m pretty much done with this subject after this comment because it’s getting ridiculous…in fact it probably got ridiculous a long time ago…but I was being an optimist and really hoping that by discussing it, I might be able to learn that it wasn’t true that Lea Remini’s spiritual beliefs were really causing people to despise her so, but rather some awful thing she’d done. Personally, I’ve always liked Lea & found her funny, plus pretty much everyone she’s ever worked seems to have only good things to say about her, so I was surprised to discover here that she was so hated. Well, now I have learned that apparently some hate her because she’s a stereotypically loud and pushy New Yawka. I suppose that’s a valid enough reason…lots of people hate Bethenny Frankel for that very same reason. I also learned that some hate her because she seems to be siding with Jill Zarin. In my book, that’s definitely a valid reason to hate someone. And I also learned that some people hate her not because of her voice/accent, or because of her opinion of JZ, or because of any specific bad thing she’s done or said, but simply because they find her spiritual beliefs offensive. Maybe I’m weird, but when I like someone, I like them. It never even occurs to me to pass judgment on people based solely on my disagreement with the form of spirituality they’ve chosen to guide their lives by. But again, maybe I’m weird.

  53. My lastest tweet
    RT. I’ve decided that June 30th will be National unfollow @Jillzarin Day.Non fans unfollow her just to see how much support she really has.

    Those of you with a twitter account, please retweet and spread the word.

    • nathania says:

      are there any good compilations of Jill videos besides the ones posted above. There is soooooooooooo much material out there. I wish I knew how to do it, like, i would love to do a remix with “that effin b*tch Alex McCord” as kind of a hook for a disco song, and then show Alex’s photo shoots and runway shows, interspered with Jill being her evil self to Alex,…and using the line ‘she’s socializing with people who are so above her and then having it repeat, ‘so above her/so above her/so above her, etc’

      just because the things Jill says and the way she behaves are so off the charts you really aren’t even going to believe it unless you see it for yourself.

  57. wendg says:

    I got the iPhone word press app thinking it would make it easier to read Lynn’s blog but instead it forced me to create my own and I can’t even see other blogs.

    Anyway, I wish “unfollow Jill on twitter” day was sooner than June 30th. It will be so interesting to see how many she loses.

    Her appearance on The Talk was pathetic. I didn’t even know that show existed. It was weird. Also weird that she wore the same outfit two days in a row.

    And Vicki’s new boyfriend being a deadbeat is the most glorious news! KARMA! Of course that is sad for the children and mothers that are effected in real life. My ex-husband is a deadbeat dad so I know how much it sucks. Shame on Vicki and Tamra for being so harsh on Gretchen and Slade while knowing Vicki’s new man is possibly even more of a deadbeat.

    • Debbie says:

      Unfollow Jill Zarin Day is a wonderful idea. I would participate if I still followed her . Unfortunately,(or fortunately as the case may be), she blocked me long ago and I know she blocks anyone who dares to slight her or disagree her . For that reason I wonder how many followers she’d actually lose as most that dislike her are already blocked. But I sure would like to see her numbers fall and fall far. 🙂

    hi everyone-
    any of my fellow The Killing watchers on here? Want to hear some theories! … we are getting to the end finally….

    I cringe to think how Jill was on The Talk today, i did hear she was ass kissy to fab Scientologist Leah Remini ( i cant take her sometimes, too abrasive). I hope she came off ridiculous. Have to watch it on dvr later tonight. Also i dvr’d ( i can’t believe i’m saying this)- the good morning NY show on Fox that Teresa-urus was going to co-host today. I can’t wait to see her blunder her way through it all. She came off AWFULLY in that video posted yesterday/ day before on here.
    Hope you are all well, catching up on comments upthread now….

      I’ve been watching The Killing too. I usually miss it then pick it up On Demand. I’m up to date now. I think it’s very well done. I think we’re pretty sure who the killer is now. I think!

    WAIT A MINUTE, stop the press– there is an UNFOLLOW JILL day on twitter? Where did this come from? OMG……. i need to start following her to then UNFOLLOW….


  67. VAgirl says:

    I don’t think the Cabo guy is the same guy as Southern Slade er, I mean Brooks. Brooks looks shorter than the guy in Cabo and a little bit fleshier around the face.

    • NYCer says:

      You’re probably right, although how weird is it that she’s found THREE men (cabo guy, Donn, and Brooks) who look similar enough that it is hard to tell the difference?!!!

  68. chismosa says:

    don’t know if no one is on here tonight, seems very quiet (hockey?)- but to all you Sci Fi people- did you all watch Lost when it was on tv? Just wondering, bc to me it was very sci-fi (but then again i am not a sci-fi person) Just wondering! i miss it so much sometimes. I love the over-analyzing i had to do weekly

    • lillybee says:

      I think that Lost was so good because the characters were so well thought out and slightly different than the ones on typical tv. I loved that show too,

    • Kerry Okie says:

      I loved Lost and I miss it too, but the final season was such a disappointment for me.

      • bronze says:

        I wanted explanations for everything but I realized that was unrealistic and that my major reason for tuning in was the characters, not the overall plot really. So I was pretty happy with the closure they gave each person.

      • chismosa says:

        I agree with you Kerry- just a letdown overall. But glad i stuck with it overall. I was weeping when Jack was with the dog on the island watching the plane above of his friends leave the island! I have to get the whole series on dvd one day

        • plainviewsue says:

          Lost………….the greatest show ever on television. Bar none!!!! You definitely should get the series on DVD. My family and I have rewatched it from the beginning many times & you always pick up something new. If you get the DVD from season 6, they have an extra called The New Man In Charge and it answers questions.

          I cried like a baby at the end, and I love how they ended it. Did we get every answer? No. But the bulk of the important questions were answered. The bottom line this was a show about the people. I can’t believe some viewers still think they were always dead!

          I miss Lost!!

  69. MichellefromNY says:

    Teresa is such an animal. To attack a stranger physically in a foreign country is absolutely despicable.

  70. chismosa says:

    Error- in case you see this, i may have to ask you in tomorrow’s blog— you said above – “Call me when she says something truly rude like ” women should always marry men who love them more than they love the men”— did Jill say this? Do you know who/ when?

    I heard this from a friend of mine once and yes, she is in a bad marriage with a man who i truly think does not love her as much as she loves him and i always think to myself ‘boy you didn’t follow your own advice!’

    Was just wondering….

    Boston rocks….. Stanley Cup!!!

  72. butterisafruit says:

    WE GOT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  73. boston02127 says:

    Sorry Nancy. I have to say you’re a good sport! If you notice I haven’t said much because I’m sooooo
    superstitious. Vancouver played some good games!

    • Siop says:

      Congratulations Boston, even if it was a boring series for neutral fans. I’m a little sad for Vancouver hockey fans tonight. It was their only shot at the cup. They have a lot of free agents so I’m sure it’s pretty much out of sight for them in the near future.

  74. Nancy says:

    CONGRATULATIONS BOSTON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I’m going to be skinned alive the next time I enter Canada! ha ha

    AT the end of the game they showed a clip of Boston’s win in 1972.
    The ref in that shot was my dad!!!!! I was at that game. Great memories.
    Again, Congratulations.

    • butterisafruit says:

      Nancy you have to get that file footage. Seeing your Dad like that must have been great.

      It was a good series, great skating. Thanks for being so nice.

      • Nancy says:

        I have it on tape. Yes that was very unexpected. I have so many memories
        of my dad during his hockey career. The players respected him.
        When I talked with my uncle in Toronto after the game he made me feel better when he told me that
        there were more Canadians playing for Boston than for VANCOUVER.
        So I guess we both won! 🙂

        • boston02127 says:

          Nancy—You have such good memories. It must of been fun growing up around all the excitement.

          • Nancy says:

            My dad is a saint in my eyes. After my mom died everyone told him it would be best if he put my sister and I up for adoption because he was always on the road working in hockey. He wouldn’t hear of it so somehow we figured it out and we stayed together. My life was figure skating, my dad’s was hockey so my poor sister had it a little rough. Thanks for caring you guys it meant a lot. I still miss him terribly.

    • boston02127 says:

      That must of been so exciting to see your father in that shot. I hope you’re recording it.

      no problem Nancy. You can tell tonight is a full moon.

      • Nancy says:

        And we were having such a good night. It must have beed hard not being in Boston and all.
        I always feel bad when teams win that were not played at home.
        My dad ref’d at the old Boston Gardens.
        May I ask you about your “name” butterisafruit? That has to be a good story.

      • boston02127 says:

        Nancy—I’m not and I want to apologize to Quincy and the board for feeding them the other day. Usually I just ignore. I’m logging off, I’ve drank so much coffee, not much sleep tonight.

        Have a peaceful night everyone.

  80. bronze says:

    About Vicky’s new beau…what does he do? Does he work? What does he do?!?!?!

    Quite frankly, and I don’t mean to judge, but he doesn’t seem like a winner in that department either.

    • TLM says:

      Allegedly also works in insurance. I guess they met on one of her business trips. However, he is in arrears with child support, so maybe he’s not doing so well. Who knows.

      • bronze says:

        Oh that’s wonderful if she met him on one of those business trips she always raved about but couldn’t find the time to have family dinner at least once in a while.

  81. California35 says:

    Someone mentioned that Teresa was on Fox today? What is Fox? We in Califonria have Fox Chanel and Fox news, in wonder if that is where she was.

    Bethenny posted on her FB that she will be on Fox, so when I read about Teresa I wondered if it is on the same place… Any one knows?

  82. VAgirl says:

    Well, today has been full of some surprises and not really surprises. We learned that OC’s Vicki has a new beau who is not so new. Apparently she knew him at least as early as August (two months before she served Donn with divorce papers). And he is a deadbeat dad, just like she has accused her first husband of and also has berated Slade Smiley for being. She is now acting all surprised like she didn’t know he owed back child support and is acting like she hardly knows him and has only been with him a short time, when there is proof she wrote to the judge to try to get him out of jail back in August. Oh, Vicki, what a tangled web we weave. Did you really think that information woiuldn’t be revelaled? We also learned that Jill is still obsessed with Bethenny and wants to be her so bad she can’t stand it. She’s is still talking about Bethenny even though Bethenney has left the RHNY way behind and gotten on with her life. Jill also is so desparate that she is trying to get celebrities to follow her on twitter after being on The Talk for about a minute. Last, we learned that Bethenny has taped a pilot of a talk show, which is not so surprising since we know she has been wanting to do that and has been in talks to do that very thing. I don’t know why I felt the need to summarize today’s housewife happenings, but there it is. I have changed my opinion about Vicki, she has really disappointed me (and apparently her daughter Brianna too); my opinion on Jill Zarin has not changed at all, and I wish Bethenny all the best and hope she gets her talk show if that’s what she wants. She has worked hard and deserves it, while others haven’t work hard and just feel entitled (hear that Jill?) Oh, and we also learned the Luann helped Bethenny develop the Skinny Girl Margarita. Yeah right. If that were so, I believe the Countess would be in line to get some of that lawsuit money because her money train (child support) will be running out soon.

    • Nancy says:

      The “countless” is freaking out because she knows that she will be emptying bed pan’s soon.
      I can’t wait.!!

    • California35 says:

      I like your recap 🙂

    • LuAnn thought she was going to be a big pop star and that didn’t pan out so she is desperate. She wants to be relevant and the only way she can do that is to ride Bethenny’s coattails. I noticed that she didn’t save yesterday’s Ustream video. I wanted that video to go viral so everyone see that LuAnn is a crackpot.

  83. HEY Lynn says:

    Thanks for blogging, I really enjoy it! All you commenters are so great!

  84. TLM says:

    Ok. I hate myself but Croc-o de Shitto was on in the background, and so I wound up watching. He proved he’s still as much of an arrogant dickhead as he always was. Demeaning to the chefs and had it in for this female chef from the get-go whom he kicked out because her signature dish was a cold dish. He kept the guy whose fish was raw when it was supposed to be cooked.

    He must love torturing seafood. He shook a live lobster and MOCKED IT. I guess this was his sequel to hacking up a crab when he flew into a rage.

    I hope someone puts rat poison in his dessert.

  85. HEY Lynn says:

    Love your blog!

  86. chismosa says:

    i wish one of the regular commenters who are not criticizing Lynn can explain to me about Miami.
    Lynn- i did see you commented on Jill’s twitter page / photo of her in the white suit or the backstage with her luring gifts for the Talk people– is that really Lynn posting there? Or are there actual people using Lynn’s handle out of here- i thought Lynn was indeed on Twitter. Just want to be sure where Lynn truly is and isn’t. Not trying to incite anything, just wanted to know for sure who is Lynn and who isn’t.
    I think it’s Twitter that messes everything up for everyone. Apart from that, there are just blogs.

  87. chismosa says:

    Butterisafruit: re: The Killing—
    I don’t think we can assume it’s Richmond. We can assume he is who took that girl Aline (?) out and freaked her out but that is not to say he took Rosie out and/or killed her. Also dumping her body- two separate actions. I’m just ready to find out already! Money is on Jamie his assistant but that billionaire guy looks gross too.

    So happy it is renewed for a second season- not sure if you heard that or not.

    • butterisafruit says:

      I think you’re right. I thought we knew who, a few episodes ago. Every week something unfolds.
      I’m glad it’s being renewed. It’s a good show. I think it’s very well done. I guess she and her son are not moving now. I didn’t know it was being renewed THANKS.

  88. HEY Lynn says:

    I know there is a fraud moron posting using your name and photo…since you’re way too busy to do it yourself. Thanks for all you do!

    • LynnNChicago says:

      If only you knew what you were talking about…I have one Twitter account as everyone knows – there are plenty of fakes out there, obviously it is YOU. My Twitter name is LynnNChicago and the avitar is NOT the photo that you posted here, it is a different photo than I use on this blog. Anyone can take that photo and use it, the people here are not stupid, they know that and you’re not fooling anyone. Why don’t you find something better to do with your time???

      • Nancy says:

        Thanks. You are up late tonight. Congratulations on your win. 🙂

      • chismosa says:

        Lynn sorry to ask that above, i now know for sure that is you on twitter. Do not want to hand any treats over to the trolls. It’s just so frustrating to hear things hear and not knwo what is going on in the blogosphere- i get all my juice from you guys here
        have a great night to anyone awake!

  89. NYCer says:

    VAGirl, I thought that you did a great recap.It makes me think entirely differently about every second Vicky was filming with Donn this season. If you believe the letter written in August, her intention was to end her marriage for the majority of the season. Was she trying to show Donn in a bad light so she could get some audience sympathy? He was having a conversation with her in kitchen and she couldn’t wait to turn away. It seemed like a fake display of awkwardness and anger. The cynical part of me thinks Vicky had made up her mind and this “foreshadowing” was only to get the fans on her side. Her looking better that previous seasons while spening more time apart suggest there was a man…but the kind of man who is full of BS and compliments (not necessarily accomplishments or character….. but I guess she needed compliments and nothing else.

    I get it….. I get it her marriage wasn’t fun, and she found fun, and she wanted out. I just hope she is as honest as possible with her family, friends and fans as this all come outs. Please Vicki– silenve is acceptable but no lies, backtalk and misdirection.

    • VAgirl says:

      Yes, it seems like the longer these ladies (I use that term loosely) are on “reality” tv, the more they try to manipulate how they are perceived . I think of Vicki and Jill especially in this context. Seems they both planned way ahead of time the way they wanted to be viewed in the upcoming seasons. Unfortunately, they underestimated the intelligence of the majority of people who watch.

      • Nancy says:

        I think Vicki has altered the relationship with her children that can’t be undone.
        I really hope Brianna and Michael keep in touch with Don. They seem really close to him.
        The whole thing is sad but I don’t feel sorry for Vicki at all. She made her own bed. I wonder if this new “boy toy” doesn’t work out will she then want Don back?

        • VAgirl says:

          Using my soothsayer powers that were bestowed upon all of us by Quincy, I predict that sometime in the not too distant future when Vicki is all alone after being abandoned by her good friend Tamra and everyone else she is currently hanging around with, she is going to wonder, “What in the hell was I thinking?” Jeanna may have said some snarky things about Vicki, but Vicki may wish she still had a good friend like Jeanna when reality hits Vicki square in the face. Knowing Jeanna, she would forgive Vicki and probably still be there for her if asked.

          • Nancy says:

            If anyone of us knows a single great lady we should forward that information to Don.
            That will really piss off Vicki.

            • lillybee says:

              I will volunteer for it.

            • Kansas Girl says:

              Me! 🙂

            • TLM says:

              I think like a lot of people who divorce at her age, Vicki misses her ex but does not regret her decision. It’s sad, but sometimes it just happens. For whatever reason, she had just shut down, and I give her credit for owning that on national TV and saying Donn was absolutely right in feeling the way he did. It would have been easier for her to just attack him. She wasn’t going to say anything negative about him until Andy asked that question, and pretty much all she said was that he could have a sharp tongue sometimes, which is true of pretty much all of us. I have to give Vicki credit for owning her part in this. And I understood the part about how Donn was served at his office. I don’t think she wanted that to happen, but it’s a reality of divorce in 2011.

              I have seen people who were completely lovely and nice turn into raving lunatics in a divorce. I had a very good friend whom I stopped speaking to because of the way he flipped out at me during his divorce. He was unhappy with the court system and because I happened to have a law degree, I think he took everything out on me. I didn’t represent him and never practiced family law, and in fact, I told him he probably knew the family court system better than I did. But he just had become a completely different person, and was abusive to me. So I get that even someone like Donn could have moved assets or done something crazy. Another example – I don’t think Slade is a cruel person or abusive to women (though he has numerous other flaws) but I thought it was vicious and cruel when he removed the license plate from Jo’s car as she was packing it up to leave him, in an attempt to prevent her from leaving and to belittle her in emphasizing he bought the car, not her. Men can get extremely threatened by a woman who’s leaving, and you never can predict what they will do. I sat in on a court proceeding years ago where a woman kept having her car towed away while she was at work. Can you imagine going through that every day? The ex claimed the car was his and it was “stolen.” He just wanted to make her life hell. They were in their SIXTIES.

              It is probably for the best that they can each move on. I’m sure Donn will find a good woman. I don’t feel the need to see Vicki suffer any more than she already has. I take issue with Jeana and Simon because I believe Simon was abusive and Jeana defended him, and Jeana always seems to be on the side of abusive men. I am glad Tamra is happy in her new relationship.

      • bronze says:

        That scene with Tamra where she tells her they haven’t had sex in a long time seemed really strange and staged. I do think she was trying to be a victim and garner sympathy knowing she had this other guy waiting. Ugh.

    CONGRATULATIONS To the Boston Bruins!!! Stanley Cup baby! Thanks for keeping it in the USA Boston! Well done

    • skogsstig says:

      While this former Bostonian is happy the Bruins won the Stanley cup, I think Canadians won it… 😉 I just checked the Bruins team roster. Out of their 26 players, only 3 are from the US and 17 (!) are Canadians.
      Vancouver? Their roster of 33 players also lists 17 Canadians – and 5 from the US.
      It was a great game to watch. Congratulations to all the players!

      Thanks for an always entertaining blog, Lynn – and don’t sweat the kvetchers. Let’s just let them sit in their corner and pick their bones. Not worth the time it takes to type responses. As the always oh-so-classy courtesy-titled-but-lacking-courteousness-countess might say to them, “Get a life!”

        • BostonGirl says:

          This may be true. But, there was a time when there were practically no Americans on our Boston Bruins hockey team. But now think how close we came to beating Canada in the Olympics. Honestly I was glad for Canada’s win, I knew how much it meant to them but I’d say we were pretty evenly matched. America has come a long way in hockey!

    Good morning, all. It’s much cooler this morning than it has been the past couple of weeks. We are expecting rain this afternoon. My mom’s tomato plants could doe with a shower. She lives in an apartment complex so she planted her tomatoes in my yard this year. The plants already have some little green tomatoes on them. Can’t wait for a good tomato sandwich with mayo and pepper. Mmmmm Mmmmm Good!

    • jeepers1941 says:

      OMG VAgirl
      I have not had one of those sandwiches in years, use to eat 1 or 2 a day in the summer time back in Indiana. Now I am hungry for one myself…… 🙂

      • VAgirl says:

        I used to eat so many that my mouth would get sores from the acid in the tomatoes. I don’t eat that many now, but still have one every now and then.

    We had fog early. Can’t believe all the stuff going on with bloggers & Lynn.

        Yes I was even getting some flack from people on other blog for being here as well. I didn’t even know there was any weird shit going on till someone said said a snarky remark to me.
        I love tomato & vidalya onion sandwich with mayo & sea salt & pepper.
        You made me think on my lunch for today VAgirl. Thank you 🙂

  96. Kukulet says:

    So Vicki traded in Donn for a deadbeat Donn lookalike? Way to go, Vic-where’s that savvy she is constantly bragging about again? I feel bad for her kids. Donn’s been their father figure for 17 years, and he has always appeared to be a good and decent man. Watching Mom throw him over for a used car salesman slash replacement can’t be a fun experience.

    LuAnn “coinvented” the Skinny Girl Margarita? C’mon, Countless. Chugging it in your bedroom at night doesn’t count as “inventing”.

    Jill is still an idiot, I see. You just can’t fix stupid and nasty.

      Is your city still celebrating? You guys should have been able to do it last night!
      Is there going to be a parade like they do in Football?

      Going back to sleep. My cat Roxie woke me up at 4am because I made her come inside early last night.
      I swear to God I have a pass/agg cat. Have a good day all.

      • butterisafruit says:


        I was thinking last night. My husband went to all those hockey games. He knew all the refs. Not in person but who everyone was. He loved the old Bobby Orr days. Hockey was different then. The fights were awful. Your poor Dad had to have been in them. Sometimes 5 fights would break out at the same time.

        • Nancy says:

          Do you remember The Rocket? I hated all those fights back then. My dads nose was broken many times and he lost some teeth. It was crazy back them. Who was your husbands favorite?
          It was fun last night. Thank-you.

      • boston02127 says:

        Everyone is waiting for the Mayor to announce the parade. He was pretty much a stick in the mud yesterday.

  104. VAgirl says:

    Bethenny’s interview went well. She was there to sell her book, but to also promote a program where mobile units go around New York and give check ups to kids who aren’t covered by health insurance. Also she said she thinks they have found a larger apartment in Manhattan and CA is on hold for now because of business opportunities in New York (talk show?)

    • LavaLady says:

      I thought she was great on Fox this am. Only caught a few minutes, but she seemed very relaxed and confident. Good for her.

  105. Debbie says:

    OT….Bethenny’s taping a talk show!! Looks like predictions were right regarding comments I read here after Bethenny’s appearances on Ellen. The show is produced by Ellen and guaranteed to cause Jill Zarin much anguish (tzuris in Yiddish). While Jill sends tweets to fans asking them to contact local NY stations or ABC’s The Talk to .encourage them to have Jill as a co-host, Bethenny sailed right past her and began filming the show for ABC. Can Jill spin this in order to take the credit? Too bad, so sad, JIllzy. You tried to bring her down and and only succeeded in making yourself look desperate.

  106. MUM says:

    This is to just say thank you to Lynn and Quincy for their fantastic take on the houswives shows. I have had many laughs and shared the same distaste for Jill and admiration for Bethenny. I will return to read all the comments if I have time but the shows have become such crap I am embarrased for these women. I have stopped watching all together but keep up the good work. Where is their decency.
