I Hate Jill Zarin The Real Housewives of New York – Let’s Chat!
Thank you to Error404 and Diane for this link:
It’s a short one, so here it is in its entirety:
At Gawker’s “Summer of Love” rooftop party last night to benefit the Empire State Pride Agenda Foundation, there was some of my beloved non-lovin’ in the air.
Real Housewives of NYC’s Alex McCord told me, “I just came from a 12-hour reunion taping of the show.”
“The whole thing was like a cage match,” she said.
“Ooh, lots of TV conflict?” I cooed. “But you’re not a fighter, unless provoked, right?” I added, totally faking it. (I don’t watch TV except cable news and reruns, remember?)
At that point, along came Sonja Morgan, who was fuming like a haystack, too.
How was the taping, pray tell?
“Horrible!” Sonja boomed. “I had to defend everyone and people were attacking me.
“Kelly said my house is dirty and disorganized!
“You don’t say that to someone when they’re going through a divorce and a lawsuit and …”
“I’m going to get a beer.”
And suddenly it was the summer of love again.
I don’t believe that last line but interesting to hear what Alex and Sonja had to say immediately after filming.
I think that Kelly just creates drama for the sake of creating drama. Someone told her that it was the Brunette’s vs. Blonde’s this season and he decided she had to attack all the blondes at one time or another throughout the season. She has to keep “acting” on the show because in her head she is creating great TV for Bravo. Last season she actually tweeted to a viewer that they should join her on “the set” someday to see how everyone is “acting”. Kelly, you don’t have a “set”, this is a reality show you moron!
Kelly insulted Ramona by acting like Ramona had the plague and keeping her children away from Ramona. Could there be anything more insulting than acting like you’re so toxic that people have to keep their children away from you?
Kelly insulted Alex by treating her like a child in Morocco. Kelly was shushing Alex and telling her to calm down. She called her “inauthentic” and told her she cannot act that way. Kelly didn’t know or didn’t care what was on Alex’s mind, she brushed off Alex’s feelings and was extremely rude to Alex. Kelly used Jr. High School mean girl tactics on Alex, unfortunately Alex is too kind to have recognized it as it was happening. I wish Alex had completely ignored the psycho mean girl Kelly and walked away.
Kelly’s attack on Sonja was so vile that even Kelly’s team-mate Luann sided with Sonja. Without knowledge or provocation Kelly said that Sonja’s house is dirty, needs to be remodeled and that Sonja is trying to live her ex-husband’s lifestyle. OMG Look who’s talking! Just because Kelly buys new Zarin Fabrics every 6-months to have her couches recovered, then tweets photos of them doesn’t make her home newly remodeled. Sonja doesn’t need to have pink, purple and blue couches to pretend to be hip and cool. Just because Sonja’s taste in decor doesn’t agree with Kelly’s IKEA taste doesn’t make Sonja wrong.
Worse than Kelly insulting her home was Kelly insulting Sonja’s financial situation. Particularly since we all know that Kelly Bensimon lives off of Gilles Bensimon, her ex-husband. This is a woman who does not have a job, her books have failed miserably and she donates a box of cereal to a food pantry. Her jewelry line consists of feathers on a thin wire twisted into earrings. She thinks that if she Tweets the name of a charity, she doesn’t have to give anything to that charity because thousands of people will donate based on her Tweet. She’s delusional and while many thought her just to be crazy last season, she’s not crazy, she’s vicious and mean. Painting herself as a victim and venerable is ridiculous, she’s stupid and vile.
