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!
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!!
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!
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 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….
