I Hate Jill Zarin The Real Housewives of New York

I Hate Jill Zarin  The Real Housewives of New York The Top Ten Things I loved about tonight’s show:

10.  Luann’s horrible singing to Jill Zarin, of course the signing was horrible but the lyrics were even worse!  The best part was Ramona saying she thought it was a guy in drag coming down the stairs!  Hysterical!

9.  Tough little Avery Singer planning her Sweet 16 birthday party, she knows what she wants and she’s going to get it!  She looked incredible and her venue was stunning, I hope she had the time of her life!

8.  Simon getting hypnotized to stop smoking cigarettes, I love how he went outside to smoke that one last one before he sat getting his brain rearranged to convince himself he’s a non-smoker.  I don’t think it worked….

7.  Dualing Sweet 16 parties, I know which one I’d prefer to attend, Avery’s looked amazing and I’m sure the pot-smoking, racist first daughter of the royal Count enjoyed herself particularly after her mother took off to spend more time with her young stud.  After all Lulu spent hours planning, shopping and preparing this kid’s party, how much time can she be expected to spend with her kids?  Mom time is important, go get laid Lulu.

6.  Jill’s birthday party was a joke!  Before Ramona mentioned it I noticed that the venue looked a bit cramped.  Everyone seemed to be crunched together and Lulu even had to duck her head so she didn’t jam her huge forehead on the rafters.  Jill’s fake screams of delight just proves she is an outstanding actress.  Cindy read a poem dressed as Josephine Baker, how ridiculous!  (and clearly her clothes had not been on hangers!)  What’s with Kelly apologizing over and over for being late, she’s always late!  Did anyone expect anything less from the Kellster?  I think that people give her the wrong time on purpose so they don’t have to deal with her for too long.

5.  People were obsessed with a “bed” set up at Avery’s party!  OMG people, it wasn’t a bed!  Haven’t you seen those lounge square set up’s in clubs and hotels before?  They have them poolside in cabana’s in the fancy hotels…get over it!  No one is going to have sex on the bed in the middle of a party!

4.  Only two housewives attended both Sweet 16 parties, Jill and Kelly the two desperate for screen time!  Heaven forbid they missed something or maybe weren’t on screen for a few seconds if they hadn’t attended both parties.  I’m with Sonja, I’m going to enjoy the one that had a little something for the adults!  But why was Avery asking Kelly to shuttle the adults back to their side of the party?  I know Kelly is a Sasquatch Amazon woman but I don’t think she could fit all those adults on her back.

3.  Cindy has bad body odor. Reason enough to can her for next season!  Enough said!

2.  Somebody give Jill Zarin a damn napkin please?

1.  Of course my new hero, Bobby Zarin who while talking to Simon mentioned a “hate blog” that we all know, of course is our little “Blog That Could”!  Jill has been trying for over a year to get me to take down the blog, then change the name of the blog but she has given me no reason to change the name.

Jill Zarin has not changed, she proved it in the first few episodes when she called Alex a “F***** Bitch” then said she was socializing above her means at the wedding.  Those are Jill’s true feelings about Alex, any attempt to make peace was simply to try to regain fans that she’s lost for being so damn mean! Last season Jill was mean to both Bethenny and Alex and it lost her a whole lot of fans and earned her a “hate blog”.  She watched as Bethenny’s popularity soared, Alex and Ramona gained fans as she lost them so her attempts to be nice to Alex are all fake and a pathetic attempt to win back fans.  We know that she probably goes home each night and vomits after forcing herself to be nice to Alex while filming all day.

Jill’s constant attacks on Ramona are getting pretty old, she’s called Ramona a hypocrite at least a dozen times in the press and on Twitter and Facebook, even creating a poll asking her fans if they think Ramona is a hypocrite.  This poll was right after she explained why she thought Ramona was a hypocrite, I can’t imagine why Jill’s three fans voted in favor of Jill.

More goodies on tonight’s show…very little Cindy or Kelly, that was a big plus!

Alex McCord addresses our little blog here in her Bravotv.com blog, here’s part of what she had to say:

Let me try to shed some light. There’s a blog out in cyberspace that isn’t complimentary to Jill. If you read Bravo blogs, chances are you know it or have heard of it. A year ago, Simon and I were on our book tour, and stopped in Chicago, where the founder of the blog is based. The blogger attended one of our book signings, and had contacted us via our website prior to our arrival — asking that if a meet and greet for local bloggers and fans were to be organized by them, would we attend? We discussed it, ran it by our publisher and agreed that a blogger and fan event was good outreach, and attended the event after our signing in June of 2010. We took fan photos and discussed the book and the show.

I don’t know how that translates into Simon or me being investors, content writers, posters, or even members of the blog. We don’t own it, we don’t have money in it. We don’t write for it. There is a link on the blog to a recap of the Chicago fan event held for us with pictures, and as the blog covers the whole Housewives franchise, we along with all other cast membersare regularly discussed on it. That doesn’t mean we are doing the discussing.

Alex is almost right, the only thing I have to dispute is that I contacted them to set up the meet and greet cocktail reception.  Simon actually contacted me and asked me to set it up.  Here’s what happened, I tweeted to a friend who was going to meet me at Alex and Simon’s book signing in Chicago:

@LynnNChicago@gibgrl1 So excited @mccordalex and @simonvankempen coming to Chicago!!! Who’s joining us???

Simon retweeted my tweet and added:

@Simonvankempen  Who’s booking out dinner?

@Simonvankempen:  So organize it.

I asked Simon if I organize it will he and Alex definitely be there?

@SimonvanKempen @LynnNChicago book a venue, sell tkts & Alex & I will talk. Remember this is 2 days after the finale airs & a week b4 the reunion spec does

Of course he’s referring to last season’s finale and reunion.  You can see these tweets in my “Favorites” on Twitter  http://twitter.com/#!/LynnNChicago/favorites

Other than that, every word of Alex’s blog is true.  I don’t feel like Simon dissed the blog on television, but he does read the blog and he has posted comments a few times but Bobby had his facts wrong and Simon didn’t lie.   I believe that possibly Bobby wasn’t being 100% truthful because he acted like this blog had just been brought to his attention when we know for a fact that Jill has known about and been angry about the blog since it started over a year ago.  I’ll bet Jill didn’t keep this a secret from her husband all these months.

Alex goes on…

Six months later, now that all this nonsense and finger pointing has happened, yes, we do read it, along with a few other sites that blog reality TV. I don’t see everything — there is way too much online to keep up with while maintaining life and work. The blog owner has now met and interviewed quite a few members of the Bravo family, and sometimes tweets us random questions about our show and pop culture in general. Sometimes I answer, though I won’t speak for anyone else because keeping a handle on my own Twitter feed is enough work.

Alex is most likely referring to some of the interviews that I’ve done with other Housewives and Bravo cast members including Sonja Morgan, Cat Ommanney and Tabatha Coffey.  Other Bravo stars also follow me on Twitter, not just Alex and Simon.

Finally, Alex had this to say about bloggers:

If you tweet nice things or garbage, at a Bravolebrity or anyone else in the public eye, chances are they or their fans will see it. I get tons of love and hate every week. Here’s what I DON’T do. I don’t assume that the negative stuff is written by, supported by, or controlled by my castmates. When you assume, you make an A-S-S out of U and ME.

Well said Alex!

My partner in blogging wrote a great blog that sums up some of the history, Thank you Quincy, what would I ever do without you!!!  Lynn~

Research from the “I Hate Jill Zarin” blog to help commenters remembers what happened when with reality stars and this blog.  By QuincyIL

I am sure you all have memories of our interaction with Simon van Kempen, but I went back to get the links to share with you.  The evidence is all here.  Lynn was away when Simon came to the board the second time and I notified her in an email that she received days later and responded to me.

Link to early posts of lynnnchicago


These posts are from April 2010 long before Lynn tweeted with Simon after reading about their book tour visit to Chicago.  Do your homework, Bobby Zarin.  To accuse Simon of creating something before he had ever heard of a blogger in Chicago is ridiculous.

Photos of Alex and Simon in Chicago


 Blog about the Katrina/Jill comment from Aruba.  Jill Zarin had mentioned on her public tweet line that she was going to Aruba on the board so when someone talked to Lynn about Simon, the people on the board began to speculate.  The comments about this have always been on the board. 


Open letter to Jill Zarin which got a response from Rachel/Ally Shapiro (did she legally change it to Zarin?)


Simon posted on the board twice. The first time was to defend Kelly Bensimon who was having a problem with twitter. The second time he came to give a link about false stories placed in the press by you can probably guess and Alex’s comments about having a drink before delivery of their first child. Here is Lynn’s comments and a link to the original discussion:

Simon VanKempen visit’s the blog:

On Saturday night there was a bit of a Twitter battle going on that was discussed in detail on yesterday’s blog and comment section.

It all started with Kelly Bensimon. No surprise there, right? Kelly changed her name on Twitter from @Kikilet to @KKBensimon. When Kelly originally did this, she just started a whole new account with Twitter and lost all of her followers in the process.

In an effort to help, Simon tweeted to Kelly that she could simply change her name from @Kikilet to @KKBensimon without losing her followers. Kelly took Simon’s advice.

What Simon forgot to mention to Kelly, or maybe he thought Kelly would figure it out herself was that if she took his advice, it would leave her old @Kikilet name available for anyone to take and utilize on Twitter. Needless to say, Kelly’s worst nightmare came true. A Twitter member named Chris swiped Kelly’s old name @Kikilet and began to tweet with that name. Admittedly funny to most of us, but of course not to Kelly.

At some point Simon VanKempen sent a private DM to Chris asking her to please “park” the name @Kikilet and not tweet with it anymore as it was clearly upsetting Kelly. Chris didn’t keep Simon’s request private, she told me and a few other Twitter members about Simon’s message.

The entire thing blew up into a battle with complete details on yesterday’s blog including a comment post on this blog from Simon himself explaining his point of view. For the complete story, read through yesterday’s comments and blog post…. http://wp.me/pVOhN-nZ

It really is much more complex and fascinating than I can possibly describe in this blog, it is a must read!

(from Q…this is the day that I got a phone call from Simon van Kempen .  I had written to him stating who I was and I called him “a turncoat” for his defense of Kelly Bensimon and his new friendship with Jill Zarin which I read about in leaks to the press and guessed at because of the Katrina post.   I later apologized publically for that comment when I found out that he was just trying to help a very upset fellow cast member.  He had compassion for Jill and Kelly that was sincere.  I realized I was wrong and told you that I had done this in the final chapter of the season four fantasy.  QuincyIL)

The second time was Mother’s Day 2011. Lynn was away and I wrote a blog on Pecking order.  People on the board were wishing each other Happy Mother’s Day.  A post came on the board with misinformation.  I felt badly that it was on so in the evening I took it off.  Simon had posted on the thread and he also wished us Happy Mother’s Day.


Since Bobby asked Simon about his interaction with this blog, I wanted to find the links and show you that everything was on the blog.  Lynn writes about all of the interactions with reality stars.  We also have commenters that met with the reality stars and that interaction is in the blogs and on the boards.

I have never had a tweet from Simon, but Sonja Morgan and Alex McCord have retweeted my comments on the show.  ( you can Follow me on Twitter @QuincyILIHJZ)   Sonja mentioned things from a blog that I had written and gave hints that she had read the blog discussion of her in her bravo blog at bravotv.com  Alex commented about this blog at bravotv.com after the episode last night.

Jill Zarin has a zillion comments about this blog on her twitter and in articles.  She also made sure this blog was in season four of “The Real Housewives of New York City.”  Jill is the inspiration that launched hundreds of blogs and  thousands of comments.

Thanks again Quincy great job!  xo  Lynn~

Watch What Happens Live blog tomorrow, right here on IHJZ!

If you missed Carly and I dissing the show, you can listen here:  http://t.co/AERbOlv

Just to remind everyone, we all made a list over a year ago of the many reasons why we Hate Jill Zarin, this list is not all inclusive in fact it doesn’t include anything she’s done in Season Four.  http://wp.me/pVOhN-s

This is not a “Hate Blog” for the record the people who read and comment here are loving and kind, they help each other out, give great advice and rarely stay on topic but that’s exactly what I wanted when I created this blog.  I want people to feel free to come here and discuss anything they want to discuss and the only rule here is to be kind to others.  Everybody doesn’t have to agree, but you can dispute and argue opinions without attacking each other.  That’s what we do here.

Thanks to Boston02127 for the great photo’s with captions, hysterical!

    Hi Jill!

    Love your blog Lynn!!!!

    • Cusi77 says:

      Me too, Lynn! Thanks for creating such a great place to congregate! God Bless you and Quincy!

    • MickeyMouth says:

      I’ll leave this here: NYZMAN69: http://wp.me/pWaBw-wN

      Have a great weekend!

    • Real Housewives Ironic Fan says:

      Great blog as usual!

      When Jill figures out that Bobby just sent a ton of traffic to your website, she’ll be furious, and make him buy her even more things.

      I think Jill is a misandrist, seriously. She’s now trying to pretend she’s a victim of Mario; she openly disrespects and uses her husband for money and gifts; she advises women to marry men they don’t love – if it was a guy saying all of the things she says, and doing the things she does, people would think he has serious, sick, problems with women.

      Well, I think Jill has some serious sick problems with men and control. She’s also fine with Kelly domestically abusing men, evidently. If you take all her actions, and reversed the genders, people would understand what a monster she is, imo.

      I consider myself a third-wave feminist and am very much in favour of women taking control of their finances, and, importantly, taking responsibility for their actions. Jill never, ever, does this, and when Mario calls her out she suddenly wants to play a gender card and pretend that she’s afraid of him. It’s disgusting, and women like her making false claims makes it much, much, much, harder for real victims of abuse and women afraid for their safety to come forward and be taken seriously.

      Jill, since it’s obvious you read here: you should be ashamed of how much you set back women’s rights and freedoms with your false claims and histrionics. I’m embarrassed for you, and I bet your sister is privately mortified at how ridiculous you are.

  2. Sammysmom says:

    Just awesome!! Love you Lynn.

  3. BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

    Congrats again Lynn & thank you Q & boston for the time you spend making us laugh.

  4. mariareads says:

    I’m moving this to the new blog.

    Lynn, may I take this opportunity?

    To: Jill Zarin
    From: Maria
    Subject: Your Behavior As An Adult

    Jill, please take a long look in the mirror. We see you, in case you forget, do all the things you claim you don’t do or say. The camera catches you. You are the kind of woman that gives us all a bad name. You are petty, social climbing (fell down fast, didn’t you?) & you are a BULLY. You actually believe RHONY is your show. You are just a pawn for Bravo. They use you to attract viewers. Do you know why? People want to see what kind of rotten, miserable individual you are and marvel that you have no barometer for acceptable social behavior and personal self control. Your ego is broken because it believes your own sad characterization of yourself as some hugely rich, untouchable do gooder who is highly misunderstood. There’s the rub. You are not misunderstood. You have been discovered for who you really are: jealous, cruel, ego-centric and childish. I pity anyone who has to be around you for more than the 5 minutes it takes to size you up. The people who have watched Bravo come from all walks of life and you have no idea who we are, what we have done or (more important to you) how successful we are; meaning financially in comparison to you because that’s what you look at first, isn’t it Jill?

    As a psych major, you don’t fool me. I see you for the narcissist you are. I’m sure there is a category you fit in the DSM-IV. Please know this: you have lost whatever battle you believe you were fighting. I don’t care who it was you have had problems with or who you have attacked. You have lost each time this season, on film and off.
    Your life is a sad one and the hysteria you put into your reactions to the impressions of people you will never know are self sabotaging. Don’t you know that starting a war with those you don’t know is a lose for you? If you can’t take the heat, get off the show! Step away from the light and go your fabulous, merry way since you life is so wonderful “DAHHHLLINNNG”. What’s that? You can’t do that because then what would you have? You would have time to see a therapist and work on your serious problems. You are a woman who is almost 50. You behave like a child who is 10. That must be where you are stuck. Only a child would behave as you do. Do you not understand that you are such a sad case that even I, who know how dark and nasty you are, feel shame for you?

    So what are you going to have Bobby do to Simon? Throw him in the Hudson River?
    All because he answered you back a few times! You play you pay, Jill. You can’t take it? Don’t open that mouth of yours and speak ill of everyone. You are not cool. And by the way, you looked ridiculous on WWHL. I had to turn it off and continue to read Cleopatra. (You know, a REAL book written by a REAL writer.) At the end of the day you are a silly woman whose perception of herself is so twisted and skewed that you are
    mostly a creature to be mocked. Please understand that you have no power. You cannot hurt other people for what they think of you. You show us and we react because we DO have a barometer for how to behave, right thinking and goodwill.
    How completely tragic for you that you will live out your life with this total lack of self awareness. I don’t hate you Jill Zarin. I pity you.

    • Zoey says:

      Word up! Well said.

    • Angela Cox says:

      nicely said!!!!!!!!

    • Furalis says:


      Thank you for putting your words together how we all feel I could not have said it better.
      She is a miserable human being and will never get it.

      Well said.

      • MsJxn says:

        Honestly,..ITA,….been wanting to post something like this myself,…but waiting to see the full unraveling that Uncle Bravo Andy just can not bring himself to do for some reason.

      • mariareads says:

        Thanks gang. I needed to get that out. With all the stress we are under in our family for various reasons, watching this silly woman make MOUNTAINS out of grains of sand just finally broke my back last night. I couldn’t stand to watch her. You know, the world is a tough enough place without people making life worse for each other. Some goodwill goes a long way and this JZ person never spreads any of that around. She is missing out on life no matter how much she believes she is innocent.

    • Mary says:

      I never thought about Jill being used, but it makes great sense. Bravo needs her to piss others off. We want to see her destroyed.
      Well said!

  5. IndianaHousewife says:

    Q – Could you also post the link for the blog where Lynn was talking about her interaction with Andy? This was when she was invited for Cat’s book signing/party. In the back of my mind I seem to recall Andy telling Lynn something like “I know or I know about you”. Who knows I could be in Kelly land. Thanks

    • quincyil says:

      I will look for it.

      • quincyil says:


        Here is the discussion of Cat O’s launch party. Simon and Alex said hello to Lynn. Lynn met the stars of DC. Cat Ommanney was beautiful that night a kind to Lynn.

        Lynn met Andy Cohen…who pretended that he had heard about the blog.

        • IndianaHousewife says:

          Thank you. I did remember right. I didn’t get that he was pretending to know about Lynn. This was filmed in December, and he met Lynn in March. They would have be editing,etc. at that time. I think he knew who Lynn was and knew she was going to be discussed this season. It will be very interesting to see what the next couple of weeks hold. Thanks again.

          • quincyil says:

            Maybe, a look of recognition? I was not there. LOL.

            • I think the ‘pretended’ part was about how he said he emailed a blogger back in regards to the United Bloggers boycott of Miami and there was some sort of confusion with real old house wife and grumpy housewife.

          • IndianaHousewife says:

            Lynn I was referring to what Q wrote above that Andy pretended to know the blog is all. From the time I first read this back when posted my mental image was him smirking when saying “oh I know the blog”. Even back then I thought I bet he has heard quit a bit about it. Hope he gave you a quiet hint on the side so you were prepared for this. Thank you very much for both you and Q do.

            • LynnNChicago says:

              Sorry, I knew that Indiana, I was saying “pretend?” to Quincy….you know how you look at someone and for a split second you think you know them, then you realize it is because you DO know them? That was the look I got from Cohen when I met him. I could have read it wrong but he mentioned that he knew the blog too..

  6. Golden Girl says:

    Congratulations Lynn and Q 🙂

    • krone says:

      I don’t believe that Bawby or Shrill actually believe that Simon has anything to do with this blog,- they’re just pissed as Hell that so many of us Love Alex and compare her true class to the BS “class” that Shrill and LuMann try to pedal They can’t understand why we’d be fond of someome like Alex who doesn’t bribe, cajole, beg or threaten people to be her fans: she just goes about her business; for Christ’s sake, she doesn’t even know how to be cruel, malicious or rude to viewers, it’s not in her nature! Even with the Lumanaconda (thanks Cusi) she finds it difficult to be rude. It’s certainly not in her nature to ridicule Kelly as that would be akin to ridiculing a mentally challenged 8 yr. old. BUT it’s totally in character for dumb, dumber and dumbest to seize upon the very little interaction that Simon has had with Lynne and point fingers at him while shrieking it’s all his fault. You know how much JZ must hate Alex afetr threatening to leave the show if Alex didn’t and getting no response,- or maybe a few,”Okay, fines, when you going?” That bitch is so transparent and Bawby isn’t the sunshine and light shaman he and JZ like to portray him as. Well, maybe this whole topic will be blown up and JZ will have to publicly face the fact that there are sssoooooooooooo many people who dislike her and her petty machinations. (not to mention her hench-dragwoman Luman, the mouth breather and the imbecile

  7. Nancy says:

    Good morning Lynn.
    Thanks to you I couldn’t get any sleep last night. ha ha
    I feel like it’s Christmas morning right now and Bobby Zarin gave me the best present I’ve ever received. I will remember this for the rest of my life!

    I wish Simon had responded (to Bobby) with…”Of course I talk to “That Blog” why wouldn’t I?
    Again congratulations Lynn. You have no idea how much your blog means to me. 🙂

  8. Bella Bay Beach Girl says:

    So Lynn’s “Hate Blog” was referenced on the show tonight by Bobby Zarin!!! How funny. I find it ironic that Bobby Zarin decided to admonish Simon for what I can only imagine was posting a comment in Lynn’s blog. What Bobby doesn’t understand is that Lynn’s blog levels the playing field for the people that Jill and Luann try to control and “ice out” (as we see Kelly warn Alex in the preview) and gives the viewers a voice to offer their opinions on what they see on the show. As has been stated many times on this blog, if Bravo would post the true comments of the viewers on their website, this “Hate Blog” would not exist.

    Now on with those opinions…

    I’m convinced that Luann is a drag queen and that Pepe Le Peu is a very homely woman and they like to role play. Did you see that goof ball bobbing his head with the DJ? Who by the way I think was Luann’s “producer”.

    I think Jill only went to Avery’s party to find fault. Where’s the napkins…. Really? Why is a grown woman chewing gum at a party anyway? I also think that Kelly decided to stick her nose into Avery and Romona’s business because she knew it would embarrass Romona to announce that Avery didn’t want her mother at her party.

    I find it funny to compare the parties… as I actually think both looked very nice for the girls and it looked like they were having fun. Of course Victoria’s party was at a club, as we already know that girl has been in trouble for drugs and alcohol and is running at a faster pace than Avery. Victoria looked very grown up in her dress and I’m sorry but she was wearing something I would have worn out to the club in my 20’s, and to quote so many of the NY housewives, “Her Vagina was hanging out“. Anyone looking at those kids dancing and carrying on, knows that they were most likely enjoying the benefits of mood enhancing substances! Her mother obviously knows what she is doing and that is between them. Avery on the other hand was dressed appropriately and the bevy’s that Romona ordered were for the parents! The kids were all sitting around talking (an NO KELLY they were not on BEDS! They were sitting on a square seating area with backrests… I don’t think anyone could have laid down if they had wanted to. Jill wanted to bring up the fact that Romona ordered alcohol… of course she did! She was inviting 30 or so of her friends and what was she going to serve them, Juicy Juice? Even at my kids kiddie parties, I always had drinks for my girlfriends so that we could relax while the kids ran around the yard! I see nothing wrong with that.

    • vilzvet says:

      I couldn’t imagine Ramona and Mario leaving Avery’s party before it was over! How did Victoria get home? No, Luann, you don’t disappear when you hosting your daughter’s party in the middle of NYC. Avery also looked 10 times better; I did not care for Victoria’s messy ponytail. And Kelly’s comment about “feeling sorry” that Avery has Ramona for a mother was unbelievable.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        ITA – you don’t party with your kids but you don’t leave the venue until each and everyone of the guests are safely handed off to their escort home! The Singers are responsible parents and they are raising a beautiful young lady….how can this be something to make fun of?

      • Nett says:

        I thought that too. Victoria always looks so sloppy. I would have thought that she would have had her hair professionally done. She looked like she always does, hair swept up with a rubber band without combing or brushing. Kelly stating that Victoria will someday work for Marc Jacobs? Seriously? Victoria is a hot mess .Also, Luann and Jaques could have gone to another area of the “club” while the party went on. To leave like that and essentially allow the employees to oversee and “chaperone” the party was bad parenting. Luann is all about herself. She was probably afraid that Jacque would hook up with one of Victoria’s friends.

        • Angela Cox says:

          not that I’m a size 2..far from it but don’t u have to be thin to model for Marc Jacobs? did you all here the sale lady mention a large for victoria to wear?

          • lovemamaearth says:

            And wouldn’t you want to be skinny to call your book or product “Skinny Italian”?

            I thought Adam Carolla was a jerk last night as was Jill. And no, Alex and Kelly have NOT traded places. That was about the stupidest lie Adam could have come up with.

            Good for the Singers for creating a good party for all who attended. Poor Victoria looks a little Goth and that look always seems a little sad and abused to me. JMHO

            And BTW, does anyone have an “in” with wordpress? Tell them the “upgrades” are horrible.

  9. Rhetotic says:

    Good morning! As I said last nite, remember where you were when Lynn’s blog was mentioned on RHNY! With all our virtual buddies. Off to a breakfast; can’t wait to get back and read comments. My neighbours don’t watch.

    • Lurker Also says:

      I love it! How does Simon’s communicating with Lynn amount to cyberbullying? Quite a leap there, Jill, but what else is new?

      Did anyone else crack up that when Ramona was calling to make sure the wine was on the way and she got the wrong number..she ALMOST was going to just tell her mind to whomever it was who answered! Like she had a problem and it didn’t matter that she called the wrong person..help fix it! LOL I love it.

      BTW, I have REALLY been enjoying watching season two when it airs weekdays on NBC. I really loved Bethenny and Jill together toward the beginning, and I’m sad we don’t have that dynamic anymore. Jill blew it big time. And her spastic crazed behavior nowadays is all about trying to recover from that. BUT SHE JUST KEEPS GETTING DEEPER. Sad.

    Dear Lynn,
    I read your reply to my ‘idea’. After reflecting on it- I 100% agree that it was a bad idea! If you haven’t already, is it possible to edit or delete my post from last night– PLEASE !?

    I am a newbie here & was not aware of allegations (and threats of possible by Shrill). Please excuse me for my error!

    Thank you!! And another thank you for creating this blog- it brings me continuous amusement!!



  11. WindyCityWondering says:

    To all those who come here today for the first time – welcome, be nice and hopefully you will soon understand that this isn’t an unbridled hate on Jill blog.
    Jill’s behavior and words over the RHNY seasons has prompted those who find it repugnant to migrate to this place where it is discussed because there was no platform available at Bravo. Week after week fans were force fed comments on Jill Zarin’s blog that were one sided. Now Jill wants to storyline on cyberbullying – she has used blogs, twitter, printed news media and tv to bully anyone who doesn’t love her! She needs to look in the mirror and reflect on what a hypocrite really looks and acts like!

      • quincyil says:

        I think this is a great idea. The rule is to discuss the opinion and not attack the person.
        I suspect that Jill’s supporters will not follow the rule at times. So just ignore those comments.


        • Mel says:

          How ironic that week after week Jill posts polls to ridicule and humiliate Ramona- sounds like bullying to me… now that is a hypocrite

          • shes from the school of do as i say not as i do

            loved that someone called in to WWHL and called her out on her not really changing
            to be fair Shrill responded well to the question which quite susprised me
            and she also admited that she told LuMandaconda that sometimes Countess Darlling sometime got mean to the other “girls” this was moments after telling the world how LOYAL she is to friends
            how long before she throws Loo Koo under the bus

          • plainviewsue says:

            And why oh why does Andy NOT call her out on it!!???? I wish Ramona had called in or tweeted about that. I was so disgusted by her on WWHL.

            • Mel says:

              Agreed…Andy let her run wild.

            • Bobbby must have pixs of andy having sex with a goat or something because his behaviour of late makes no sense to me

              I was so hoping Ramona would call in too but she seems to have more class then that plus she knows how Shrill tries to spin things
              that is one nasty piece of work and after Bobby last night i lost all respect for that man

            • floridagirl88 says:

              Since they had just finished filming the reunion, maybe Andy held back because some of these issues will be discussed then??

  12. Caitlin says:

    Hotdog!!! That was some night last night with our Lynn and the Guilty Pleasure Blog hitting the big time! Thanks for all the info you posted above, Lynn and Quincy, and here is a case where your honesty and meticulousness will pay off. You actually have proof to back up your assertions – the one vital element always excluded in Jill’s fabulous accusations. She doesn’t care about the truth, anyway, only about punishing those who do not shower her with endless admiration and positive reinforcement.

  13. Chandra Alesa says:

    Lynn, Is that a picture of you in front of Zarin fabrics?
    If it is…DAMN, you are dog ugly!! No wonder you have nothing better to do than spew hate. You are a fat, ugly piece of trash that gives Chicago a bad name!

    • Nancy says:

      Please don’t feed the Troll’s.

    • Bella Bay Beach Girl says:

      Lynn is a loving mother who stays home raising her kids instead of getting face lifts, liposuction, and going to the city to spend time with her lover instead while someone else raises her kids…. To quote LuMan, “Get a Life” Chandra Alesa…. BTW where’s your picture?

      • Chandra Alesa says:

        I am a stay at home mother of small children. No one else raises my kids. Loving mother? Funny, I know lots of them, and not one of them would waste a moment of their lives writing trash about people. I find it hilarious that she, looking like that, feels like she has the right to call people drag queens or say other nasty things about them. All the real housewives are obnoxious in their own way. It is why they are on television.
        I would be ashamed if my children ever knew that I wrote anything that was titled “I Hate…” We should be teaching our children tolerance (even for people as obnoxious as the real housewives and LYNN) and acceptance, NOT hate. Maybe Lynn should not be a stay at home mom!

        • MichellefromNY says:

          That was a pretty hateful comment for someone espousing love and acceptance. I’m sure you’d be ashamed if your kids ever found out that you posted such personal attacks on this blog. Maybe you should get a life.

        • kitkat says:

          Where is YOUR tolerance? Do YOU teach your children to call people “fat”, “ugly”, “piece of trash”? Idiot.

        • Actually, Lynne has never called LuLu a drag queen as a matter of fact she says she thinks she is the most beautiful house wife.
          I don’t understand your rational that based on the way someone looks, they don’t have a right to criticize the behavior of others. Are you teaching your children to be that shallow?
          You made unkind comments about the way someone looks- but are preaching tolerance? Your poor children must be so confused.

        • luvbug0813 says:

          hey chandra alesa or jill why don’t you go blow yourself! and everyone else here! how can you come here and call someone fat and then complain cause the blog has hate in the title? why don’t you go play in traffic! better yet come on down here to la and play in our trafric. if you would like to continue to kiss jill’s a** (or if this is jill, your own a**) then by all means go do that on her s****y excuse for a website!

          • luvbug0813 says:

            and if you feel the need to reach me on a more personal basis my email address is sevans0813@gmail.com i would really like to know how you can justify your negative and talk down about someone else! bring on baby

    • kbinldo says:

      Hi Jill!

      • Lurker Also says:

        I think Lynn is very pretty, and that picture looks nice.

        I understand this troll lashing out; I’d be freaked too if I were Jill and a blog like this popped up. But it’s just not true. I was looking at the Cat/booksigning pics today and Lynn is VERY pretty and has beautiful coloring too.

        And no I’m not a fat troll sitting at home eating bon-bons with no judgment–I’m in the fashion industry and was once a GOOD OL BEAUTY QUEEN ! lol! RESPECT THE CROWN, PEOPLE! Hee hee.

      • floridagirl88 says:

        My thoughts exactly. Did anyone else catch the irony in the trolls post? Me thinks we’ve upset someone. Ha ha

  14. ChiTownRocks says:

    I love love love this blog. Congratulations for the mention last night. On another site they are trying to tear this place up, but from what I can see by loyal followers, it’s not going to happen. Keep up the fantastic work Lynn and Q !!!!!!!!!!!

  15. Nancy says:

    Jill Zarin’s life is getting smaller and smaller. So sad.
    First Mario and now that “Hate Blog”. Really Jill, what’s next?
    Ginger being “bullied” at the park?
    Grow up!

    • Christine says:

      Ginger voted for her “Mommy” on last night’s poll. I tweeted Ginger (Jill) asking why a grown woman tweets for her dog. Ginger called me a loser. Oh my, now I’ll probably be banned by a dog. I will look to my furry family for support.

  16. Trudie says:

    I squealed with glee last night when Bobby brought up this blog. Lynn, you have hit the big time! Now if we can get you on WWHL.

    Only comment I have about the actual show is that I cannot believe that LuAnn left her daughter’s party. I don’t care if Victoria didn’t want her there – my kids rarely want me around when their friends are over, but it is called being a parent. I have kids in high school and before they go to parties I always call to make sure that the parents will actually be there. I am pretty sure that is what a responsible parent does.

    • MAMAZ says:

      LuAnn acted as if it’s normal for parents to leave a Sweet 16 party. It’s not. Most venues even require an over 21 adult to be in attendence. And not just any adult but the person who has signed the contract.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I do the same thing – these are minors in a club and as the hostess LuAnn should have stayed there until the last kid got picked up! Again LuAnn shows us what a horrible parent/hostess she truly is.

    • kbinldo says:

      Yeah, wtf was that about? “Mommy, I demand you pay for an extravagant party & let me dress like a cheap hooker, but you can’t come.” Let me tell you how far that would have gone with my parents.

      • krone says:

        I would have been SO PISSED if, when my kids were young, I allowed them to go to a Big, co-ed B’day party and found out later that the parent wasn’t there!!!!! Poor Victoria has a Dad who would have “been upset” if he knew Mommy was dating a jew (per LuMann’s own mouth), and a mom who can’t leave her lover long enough t0 chaperone her own daughter’s B’day party! No wonder the kid’s making racial slurs (one wonders if she’s been raised by people who use them) and doing drugs

      • Not a fan of LuManacondas child BUT i dont think she demanded the party i think it was all LuLus idea
        anything for screen time

        • kbinldo says:

          But it was Victoria who said “No adults.”

          • Lurker Also says:

            In reality, don’t you think they probably had some adults there overseeing?

            Just the same, I would CERTAINLY think it important to stick around if I were her. To be fair, I’m just commenting on what I see on TV, but her son was obviously very much NEEDING his mother in the past few years, begging her to stay home (on camera, at that!). And I believe Rosie made comments about it too. I can’t begin to understand her apparant disinterest in her kids.

  17. SantaBarbaraSusie says:

    RE: “Chandra Alesa”

    What kind of comment is THAT ?!?!?

    It was ugly & uncalled for!!! SHAME ON YOU !!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      SBS – we ignore folks like CA – if you comment you give them the reaction they crave. Don’t feed the trolls!

  18. Kelly_Has_Big_Shoulders says:

    Yay! Last night when Bobby mentioned the blog I kept elbowing my hubby who was asleep. LOL!! I kept telling him look he is talking about the blog I read. Congrats Lynn & everyone.

    I liked Avery’s party better Victoria’s was darker and gloomier not my taste, Plus she did not have that many people. I do feel like something is not right with Victoria I can’t place what it is though. I guess I see both girls and they are the same age but one looks older.
    Also regarding Luann leaving her underage minor daughter’s party. I hope if Luann wasn’t there that some form of adult supervision was in place. I would not leave a party full of minors unattended many things can happen like alcohol could be brought in or drugs. As the parent host of the party Luann is responsible for her underage guest. Not just to see that they arrived safely she needs to make sure they leave just as safely.
    I did not like Kukoo Kelly saying she felt sorry for Avery PLEASE I feel sorry for Sea and Teddy for having Kukkoo as a parent.

    Meeting of the IHJZ Soothsayer Society

    Jill Zarin’s medium interacted with some of our commenters on twitter a few days ago. She knew that we would have something to do with season four and she shared that with you all.

    So as you unoffical pretend soothsayer and a member of the IHJZ Soothsayer Society, I will share my guesses based on the information that I have gathered from the internet, information from published blogs on this site, and information from comments that we all read together.


    Before the season four of “The Real Housewives of New York City” was shown to us on television, Jill Zarin gave this interview. She stated that what really upset her was that a “housewife” came between Bobby and herself. At the time of this articles release, several sites had polls and speculated listing the housewives from the series. I thought that the “housewife” might be Simon when the article came out and I even mentioned that last night on the board.

    After reading housewifeaddict’s post last night, I realized that the “housewife” that might have caused a problem for Jill could be Alice from our Season Four Fantasy story. After Alice saw season one on dvd, she gave us photos of the bridge near Jill’s home and actually got the building incorrect. On the board she discussed her life in NYC. You all remember. Alice went to Simon’s home for a birthday party and the photos were on the blog for all of us to view. This was all on the blog and I am sure many of your remember this. Alice shared a lot with us on the board and we have suspected that Jill reads the blog and comments all along.

    Bethenny said it is never about what it is about. This is not about Simon van Kempen. Someone actually affected Jill Zarin’s real life according to Jill Zarin in the headline news interview. My soothsayer instincts tell me that this is why someone shared with Bobby and why it was brought to his attention just before the discussion with Simon at Avery’s birthday party.

    Bobby was extremely generous with the birthday gift wasn’t he? $350,000.


    It is never about what it’s about.


    • Nancy says:

      So do you think Simon is trying to convince Bobby that jill is a piece of work?
      If not please explain.

      • quincyil says:

        I was looking for the “housewife” that Jill said affected her relationship with Bobby. Jill stated that this what upset her the most this season in the article. JIll is unable to keep a secret so she gave away the final episodes of the show and housewifeaddict saw this last night.

        • IndianaHousewife says:

          I remember this vaguely – however based on housewifeaddict’s post yesterday I do not recall what happened after the event in cobble hill. Housewife says “all hell broke loose” for the life of me I can’t remember what she is referring to. HELP!

          • Nancy says:

            I think what she was referring to is the twitter that Ramona re-twitted re: LuMans daughter Victoria rolling a joint and using the N word. It was put up on YouTube.
            Victoria was expelled from school.

            • I was not referring to anything to do with the tweet about Victoria – I believe that happened later and had nothing to do with anyone on this blog.

              In early November there were huge blog wars in the comments on ROH and RCH that outed “Alice” real identity. This happened just about the time “Alice” discovered where Jill lived. The irony is that Jill’s address was available easily on the internet by goggling, but Alice was excited because she’s a true New Yorker and recognized the building from footage.

              The comments have since been scrubbed – but let’s just say it was ugly and unnecessary. I don’t think it was all Jill or her minions – there are many others that resent Lynn’s success with this blog – however the timing was suspect.

          • quincyil says:

            I think Jill exploded all over twitter.

            • Lurker Also says:

              i ALWAYS enjoyed “Alice” when sh e was here (under her three-initials moniker) and have been wondering where she went. Anyone?

    • Christine says:

      Q, thanks you for the link to the birthday gift article. I think I have found a business that Jill might actually succeed at – I will name it for her: “BJs for Baubles.” (or Bawbles, if that would emphasize the family investment connection)

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Dearest Q – it is never about what it is about. My feelings have always been that the destruction of the blondes starting with Alex was the agenda this season. All blondes and blonde husbands will be attacked by the red queen and her minions – and the attacks would not be only on the show. Now sadly, the queen is manipulating her husband as a pawn in her agenda of war. This will not end nicely and the battle will not be won.

    • Thanks Q. I have a couple things to add to clear this up for people with memories that are not like an elephants’. This is part of the ongoing theme Jill started with this facebook post:


      Jill has been watching this blog since that time, and in early Nov. one of our regulars was bored and watching old footage, and posted that she knew where Jill’s building was. She may have even taken a walk to see if she could find it. The brought out all the bad feelings with Jill, and all heck broke loose on some other blogs in the comment sections.

      A few weeks later this same poster – referred to as “Alice” in the fantasy story, was invited to and attended a party at Silex’s home. She blogged about it for us on November 20th -and I’m sure that was seen as the ultimate betrayal by Silex to Jill.

      I am delighted that what was happening behind the scenes got camera time. I was hoping to see the party in the last paragraph on camera, but it wasn’t (it wasn’t Alex’s b-day party).

      Congratulations Lynn!

      • quincyil says:

        The time frame was the birthday period of the boys. Jill got upset over a children’s birthday party. I followed Simon’s twitter by googling at the time.

    • 2Stupid says:

      Ok Quincy, I can’t take it anymore!!! I asked the other day, and many times in the past. Does Jill have something to do with the fact “Alice” doesn’t comment anymore. If thi is true, it would really change what I consider a real dislike for Jill to a more actual emotion. Up until now, I cosider this a hobby and snarking on these characters is a lot of fun. If they really start going after people in real life, that is a whole other story. Please clarify what you mean by this post……

      • Other people were attaching “Alice” relentlessly. Hopefully she’s still here but under a different name.

        • 2Stupid says:

          On this blog? I read everyday. Maybe I missed some of the nightly comments because it is hard to go back and catch up sometimes. Is it still on here you think? I have always feared it may have impacted her professional reputation somehow. I guess that is what I was referring to because Jill doesn’t have boundaries!

          • “Attacking”.
            Not on this blog much. Mainly on ROH and RCH in early November. Yes – it very much could have damaged her professional reputation. However this all happened long before she stopped posting – so I don’t know if it’s related at all – and I have no idea if the people doing the “attacking” were part of Jill’s team, or just people that didn’t like her. I think many of the comments have been sanitized now.

      • quincyil says:

        Jill did not attack her on this board or on blogs as far as I know.

        My soothsayer vibes tell me that the story of Alice might be in the show during the next few weeks. Alice shared on the board many of her adventures and some were cryptic.

        Like all mediums, I use this blog comment section and was following articles on the stars from google. I was interested in her story so I remember her hints.

        Alice might come back. I would bet she is reading the blog.

        • Golden Girl says:

          I hope Alice is reading and comes back.

          • 2Stupid says:

            Well I hope Alice decides to look through the looking glass and find her way back here! The problem for Jill is she gave this blog credibility. JZ would like to paint as all crazy losers of low intelligence and with nothing better to do. The fallacy in that is most here have above average intelligence, are well respected and can see through JZ’s lies. As many have mentioned here before, most of us have dealt with a Jill sometime in our life. Also, most of us are fascninated by her true narcissism. Come back Alice, we would love your insight on these fruit loops!!!!!

            • dsc60 says:

              Alice – you gave me support here for me when no one else did. i appreciate that more than you know. hope you’re reading and that you are well.

  20. Butters'Mom says:

    I am proud to be associated with this blog. I came here like many because of the editing of blog comments on Bravo. Lynn created a great cyber space to play in and Q is the best second in command. I couldn’t believe Bobby gave us a shout out last night. Thanks. I hope it brings more attention and followers. On the down side it will also bring JZ lovers who will personally attack. Constructive discourse is great. Disagree but do it nicely. Lastly let us agree to ignore the trolls.

    • Caitlin says:

      Thank you for stating the “why” of your presence on this board – it matches up with mine precisely! So, if Bravo had not engaged in the one-sided editing of actual viewer posts, blogs like this one would never have come into existence. For the longest time (before I came on this site) I tried and tried to make contact with Bravo to find out why NONE of my comments were ever posted. I felt like I had been placed on some kind of secret “no fly list,” for Pete’s sake. So, if Bravo repression is responsible for the IHJ blog, then Bobby’s attempt at cyber repression will only make Lynn and this blog mega superstars. As Betenny said, “Holy cat fight!!!!!!!”

      • Nancy says:

        Good morning Caitlin.

      • Kerry Okie says:

        This was my experience as well.

        • krone says:

          same exact thing here.I tried repeatedly to comment on those damn Bravo blogs but this is ever so much more fun;-)

      • dsc60 says:

        that’s also what brought me here. i can understand Bravo condensing a bit (“a bit” being the operative phrase), but it’s the way they censor that bugs me the most… it just doesn’t accurately portray how fans really view each housewife, even altering comments at times. it’s too skewed, normally in the housewife’s favor unless you’re Ramona it seems.

    • Mookies1mom says:

      This is exactly why I started coming here as well. Bravo wouldn’t post my comments and I needed somewhere to vent my frustrations. Many thanks to Lynn for providing that place! And to Q for all her hard work as well! Just don’t feed the trolls. They will get bored and leave. If Bawby’s mention brings new people that want to chat all the better for Lynn. Seems that we must have hit a nerve or two.

  21. Mel says:

    I don’t see why Jill was blasting Ramona and calling her a hypocrite. The party was girlie not “clubby”. So what if the adults have a glass of wine- obviously the adults where getting snockered at Victoria’s party. What would have been hypocritical would have been if Ramona and Mario would have left the kids unsupervised in a club…that would have been hypocritical and irresponsible. Obnoxious that Jill and Kelly only went to stir up drama- Kelly should have smoothed things over with Avery (pointed out that the parents were not in the middle of the party and that it would be ok not encourage her to be mad at her mom) and Jill should have shut her complaining mouth. Every party she attends she criticises (no food, no napkins, wrong guests, too hot, too crowded, too “decorated like a club”- what does that mean?) all boils down to jealousy. After all her fussing the real truth all came out- she took her daughter bowling instead of throwing a fabulous party that cost a small fortune. Why does she care.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Call it Sweet Sixteen or call it a birthday party – they are all as individual as the daughters involved. Guessing Jill’s daughter didn’t want a mommy dog and pony or Bawby wouldn’t spring for it. Add kiddie party critic to Jill’s list of jobs!

      • NYCer says:

        Well, Andy pointed out that Ally had a big party for her bat mitzvah, which is why she didn’t do it again at 16.

    • She’s in a bad place with Ramona and needed something to complain about. The smile on Avery’s face said it all. The party was a hit.

    • kbinldo says:

      I thought it was a bit declasse for Jill to run around demanding a napkin for her gum. Excuse me? She’s attending 2 fancy parties & chewing GUM? I’m surprised Princess Squash Blossom High Horse didn’t back-hand her for that etiquette faux-pas.

  22. Kukulet says:

    The Zarins have a talent for making asses of themselves.

    “I Hate So and So” discussions have existed since there have been celebrities. Only the medium has changed. There was probably a “I Hate Attila” discussion group going on in a sheep shed way back when. In the 90’s, BH 90210 sparked the “I Hate Brenda Walsh” newsletter, sent by snail mail. Now there are blogs. It’s not a new thing.

    Jill sparked this blog by her completely unlikable behavior. Part of that-and you might want to clue in here, Zarins-is her complete inability to take responsibility for her nastiness (think AmazonGate) “I Hate Jill Zarin” blog out there? Well, it has to be Simon’s fault. Can’t be Jill’s.

    Get over yourself, Bawby. Jill ain’t wonderful. She’s a manipulative (except she’s really really bad at it), vindictive shrew. Just because you choose to put up with her for those blowjobs doesn’t mean others can’t express their honest opinions about her. And face it: if there is any cast member of RHoNY who WOULD be behind a blog like this, it would be Jill herself, not Simon Van Kempen.

    • Christine says:

      I don’t like either Jill or Bawby. I don’t think Bawby is a nice man. I think he is weak, whipped enabler with no spine and no true caring for his wife. I keep asking myself that if Jill is an improvement over his first wife, who was he married to – Betty Broderick?

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      How true – if there are three people anywhere eventually they will talk about the one not present!

  23. Janet says:

    A BIG CONGRATS for making it on the show..!! I spit out my Pinot Grigio when I heard Bobby talking to Simon knowing it was all about this blog…LOVE IT..!!!

  24. Noreen says:

    This is the best blog ever!!

  25. Lynn it actually was a bed LOL
    its based on a set up at a popular nightclub in miami beach called B.E.D

    same set up with the curtains and everything
    of course they are used for partying with a bunch of people sitting drinking
    they will even bring you breakfast in bed LOL
    ive been there

    • I love how they pretended it wasn’t for Mario, and he believed it. Even Kelly didn’t fall for it. You have to admit the whole thing was pretty funny. Conservative Mario and his little girl.

      • Kelly has been to that club in Miami i think she even mentioned it in the episode the funny thing is it wasnt just the bed they captured the entire essence of that club made me wish i was back in Miami

        Mario most likely knew just what it was but because she is daddys lil girl choose to play along

  26. L2Day says:

    Luann came acrosss as condescending and racist in a previous season while doing charity work for African-American women returning to work. No one took notice because these were only BLACK women.

    Luann’s daughter’s behaviour is a direct reflection of her mom’s influence. I’m sure Luann used the racist “n” word many times when she found out her husband left her for a Black African Princess.

    Alex is delusional if she thinks that these women will ever accept her as their equal. Alex should concentrate on building her own brand, then those witches will be checking for her after she is successful. Alex and Simon will always be viewed as a social climbers, because of Simon. He comes across as euro-trash(so what he’s from Australia) riding the back of his wife to be a rich celebrity. Simon would leave Alex if he thought he could catch a better ride on some other American woman’s successful back.

    I absolutely can’t stand Simon because he was not a “wing man” for Alex when she needed him. In previous seasons he was always sucking up to Jill and putting Alex on the spot by daring Alex to “tell that to” Jill’s face. I also didn’t like the snarky comment he made to Alex earlier this season about her having to be the breadwinner. Simon should not support any Housewive who is not respectful of his wife. Simon is truly out for himself.

    I’m starting to think Jill had a hand in him “leaving” the hotel job. The best part of Silex are their adorable-full-of-life sons.

    • sorry i cant agree people that have met them say they are one of the most loving real down to earth couples
      Simon is far from being eurotrash
      and unlike the some of the other housewives they both work and work hard for what they have
      same with Mario & Ramona
      jill leeches off Bawby
      The countess leeches off the count
      Kelly leaches off her ex
      Cindy bores the sh!t out of everyone so who cares LOL

      • L2Day says:

        Simon probably is down to earth and loving. I said he comes across as eurotrash by his style, looks and desperation to be more affluent with the in-crowd at the trendy places. Even Bethenny once said that Silex would crawl thru a vent to get into a party.

    I really want to sue LuAnn for fraud. She insists on wearing the
    Class Title. She sold at least 5 books named Class with the Countess.

    You do not leave your guests to attend someone else’s event. She’s the
    hostess, her daughter, the guest of honor. She has breached ever dictate for good manners.
    She’s done this over and over.

    She has no idea how to be a hostess. Morocco was bad. Leaving her daughter and guests is beyond reproach.

    • oh but she HAD to get laid
      that should be more then enough of a reason to leave your 16 year old daughter whio is wearing Hoochieware alone in the big city to fend for herself

    • boston02127 says:

      That’s why Victoria looks so burnt out. SHE IS! Weekend mom needs to pay closer attention.

    • FLG says:

      I wonder how the parents of the children attending Victoria’s party felt when they found out that the birthday girl’s mother left the party. If I had a child and allowed him or her to go to a friend’s party and found out the parent left I would be furious. That would be the last time my child would be allowed to visit LuAnn’s house much less any other function that LuAnn was “hostessing”. I’m not all that old and if I were straight, any child I would have would be approaching Victoria and Avery’s age. It’s not like I’m from a totally by gone era.

    • nathania says:

      I honestly believe she left them so they could toke up and drink, because that’s the kind of cool mom she is.

    Last night’s show proved once & again that whoever the Zarins hired for PR don’t know how to do their jobs. All Bobby’s comment did was bring more attention to Lynn’s blog (YAY! We’re famous!). Remember, you never punch down, you always punch UP.

    OT, did anyone else watch Expedition Impossible last night? Looks like Burnett has fused Eco Challenge with Amazing Race. 🙂

  30. Did anyone else notice that Kelly took down her first post-show blog? The first blog started with a dig at Sonja for missing LuAnn’s party…

  31. i dont read that rubbish isnt listening to the ramblings of a loon like her enough

  32. mariareads says:

    Twitter is getting fired up. Someone is accusing Simon of reading/commenting on this blog. Anyone else see it?

    • quincyil says:

      A lot of reality stars this this blog. Jill commented once and Simon twice. We gave the links.

    • The person who is accusing Simon of reading and commenting on this blog used to be a regular poster on this blog. She is giving him a hard time this morning.

      • mariareads says:

        Correct. That’s what I’m referring to. Just an FYI. Nothing else.

      • viki55 says:

        Can you give a hint who it is? I don’t twitter.

        • quincyil says:

          It’s on his twitter feed. There are a couple of posts. I told the truth last night and today. Simon posted two times and we gave the links for anyone to read. He is open about his twitter and we are open about his two posts.

          I tweeted to lynn and asked her to keep our secret. We really work for Jill Zarin. Shhhhhhhhhhhhhh….

    • Simon’s a big boy. They all read this blog. It doesn’t mean they agree. The times Simon posted were to explain things that were about him. He’s never posted anything about his castmates. Q has links to the two posts.

      Let’s hope he get a lot of twitter followers today with this. That would be great! HI SIMON! I HOPE YOU’RE STILL A NON-SMOKER!!

      • quincyil says:

        I looked and he has a lot of people commenting about this. All we can do is state the truth. We showed you the tweets.

      • mariareads says:

        Well, I guess I won’t be putting any alerts on this board again.

        • quincyil says:

          thank you for telling us. I have several things going on and it did not enter my mind to look before you said this.


        • quincyil says:

          Maria… you can’t read facial expressions when people post so you might misread their intent. I have to be super careful with this. I think everyone was interested in your input and I am grateful.

        • @maria – thank you for the alert. Please don’t feel that we’re blaming the messenger.

          • Or feel that I’m blaming the messenger. I was simply responding to the people that were tweeting Simon in a sarcastic way – not to your post. Sorry for the misunderstanding 🙂

      • mariareads says:

        Which is the reason for my initial post. Follow Simon if you want to. I think it would be grand if he had a lot of support via his numbers going up. I like Simon. I think he’s a good guy and a good dad and husband. I’m not the type to fawn over anyone, just saying what I see. All I can say is that there are some ugly people out there who really need to check themselves. It’s truly sad to watch people act out on cyberspace because they feel protected.
        If they behave that way in real life, I feel very sorry for them.

    • Carly says:

      looks organinzed to me

    • yes and if im not mistaken that person who was accusing him of being a cyber bully used to try and Bully Lynn on twitter as well

      does the twitter name BaileysLaura ring any bells ???

      • Amber...Real Wife says:

        That old chestnut! She’s the one who called the CyberPolice on a tweeters who twatted unflattering things. AllsIKnow (thanks LuManWho?) that’s the reason I don’t tweet. Too many nuts and no one’s calling BELLEVUE!

        • Caitlin says:

          Gotta be a whack job. She’s one of those people whose permission one must get in order to follow her on Twitter.

  33. Nancy says:

    Quincy & Lynn,
    We need a plan today for the Troll’s as we may be hit with a lot of them.
    I say completely ignore.

  34. This cracks me up from LuLu’s blog:

    “Our objective when planning this soiree was for Jill to be surrounded by her family and friends and for her to have a great time,”

    Jill then goes on WWHL and apologizes to her mommy because LuLu didn’t invite her – and announces LuLu didn’t even invite Ally who lives in the city. So much for “family” LuLu. Made for TV party anyone??

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I was thinking it was strange that LuAnn didnt invite Jill’s mother….she is not included as one of Jill’s “loved ones”?????

      • Amber...Real Wife says:

        Jill’s Mom can’t stand her so CanDoLu left her off the guest list. BTW they already had one plastic surgery nightmare in a red caftan in JosephineBaker’sSon, didn’t need two!

    • Carly says:

      Bad hostess, plain and simple.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      LuAnn picked a venue and planned the party for HERSELF – nothing about that party was Jill’s taste! Love how only the brunettes had anything planned to fete Jill – guess LuAnn forgot about the other half of the cast! And as for singing – LuAnn don’t do it in public you dumb drag queen!

  35. Carly says:

    Well, now the facts are out there. I hope Bawby reads them all. Thanks for the great blog today explaining everything.

    • quincyil says:

      We are telling the truth. Simon told the truth last night in the show.

      A good friend from the IHJZ board once told me that the best defense is the truth. I believe that and have tried to be truthful on this board and in my real life.

    • quincyil says:

      The following paragraphs come from the Open Letter to Jill Zarin blog:

      I know you read the blog but do you read the comments? If you did, you would see the love, caring, admiration and respect that the people who frequent this blog have for each other. Did you know that one of the regulars here sent wigs to other regulars who are cancer patients and had lost their hair? Do you know how many ill and housebound readers find a much needed diversion from a pain-filled life with love and support right here on the blog with your name on it? Any idea how many people have lost loved ones, pets and have had devastation in their lives? They find love and support here.

      I think that you know all of this because you do read the blog, you read the blog that my friend and co-blogger Quincy wrote as well, she talks about the name of the blog and I hope that you re-read it with an open mind, you can find that blog here:

      Not only do you read the blog but you’ve also posted on the blog, just as a reminder, here is your post:

      Lynn..I found this site and find it curious and interesting. What will you do if Alex and Jill and Simon make up? You seem to hate Jill because of them. If Simon asks you to end all the hate..will you? Just curious. K

      Jill, thank you for joining the blog but your assumption is wrong, I don’t hate you because of Alex and Simon and I strongly doubt Simon would ask me to “end all the hate“ Jill because you see, he knows that this isn’t a “hate blog” Simon knows, as does the thousands who read the blog that this is far from a place to hate. Sure we snark, we criticize and we analyze, we nail Bravo cast members for their behavior.
      When Season Three ended I considered changing the name of the blog, I even wrote a blog about it and asked for opinions; the response was overwhelming in support of leaving the name as is.

      (The evidence is all in the blog. All we have to do is pull it out for Bobby and Jill. Lynn tried to change the name on three occasions to the best of my memory. When Lynn tried to meet Jill all of what we are going to watch was filmed. Jill has used her position as a reality star to attack her cast mates and IHJZ blog. This is a little blog on wordpress. It gets hits, but it is nothing compared to the PR Juggernaut run by Jill Zarin with her fancy NYC public relations firms and her secret contacts with gossip web sites. Jill has all of the money and power in the world, she should be happy. Q)

  36. Zoey says:

    Hi famous bloggers!!! Wow, look at the body language in the picture of Victoria and Lumann. Could Victoria lean any further away from her??

    • mariareads says:

      I don’t know what to think. Victoria is a kid, really. She needs guidance. Her family blew up and maybe she is acting out a little but I agree that there seems to be some friction between mother/daughter. I have to tell you, as a mom of boys I often wonder what I would have been like as a mom of girls and when I saw how short Victoria’s dress was at the store, I thought NO WAY my daughter would wear that dress. Short is fine but that was just below some very private parts!

      • I feel sorry for her. Even Danielle let Christine’s dad go to her sweet 16 – but no sign of the Count.

        • mariareads says:

          You’re right. Her dad wasn’t there. I have seen the fallout w/ kids from divorces of my family and friends. It’s really difficult for teenagers especially. It’s such a volatile time in one’s life. My dad has been gone for 13 years and every holiday hurts me and I’m a grown woman with kids and a great husband. I can’t imagine how I would have felt if my dad had not been around for those moments in my life when I was growing up.

        • Adgirl says:

          Personally, I think the Count only cares for the future Count … his son Noel. We don’t even know if Alexandre has other daughters from his prior marriages. Victoria has been abandoned by both her parents.

          • Zoey says:

            I agree, she’s been abandoned by both parents. Now she’ about to run wild. I hope she doesn’t attract and fall for some older guy as a replacement dad.

            • HW Addict says:

              More importantly she had Rosie ripped from her as well…SHE was the TRUE parent…

        • i doubt he is even in the country

      • Trudie says:

        @mariareads, I am the mother of a boy and let me tell you, I am constantly amazed at the dresses worn to various dances. I have always commented on how “appropriate” his girl friend’s dresses are and she doesn’t dress like a nun. There is absolutely no reason to let your daughter go out looking like a hooker. Clearly, the parents are letting the daughters steer the boat in these instances.

        • nathania says:

          oh honey, if this bothers you do NOT watch “my big fat gypsy wedding”.

          ALL of the girls at those reception dances look like they are on the ho stroll. Apparently the age of 21, 22 is old maid in their book, so they have it all turned out, 4 or 5 inch heals, bare midriffs, micro minis…It’s like waiting for the mad scientist to come out and brag about how successful his “I cloned Britney Spears” experiment was.

  37. kellynnola says:

    The scene between Bobby and Simon was definitely a lead-in for next week. Next week, Lynn will really be famous.

  38. Adgirl says:

    Hiiii Everybody! If you are visiting this blog for the first time, WELCOME. Please post an opinion about the show or feel free to bring up anything on your mind (except politics!). We gab about everything here. Just play nice with the other posters.

    Wow last night’s show …. Bobby Zarin, I am certain does not use the internet or social media. He probably uses email but otherwise depends on Jill and her PR team to tell him what is going on. I believe that he was “just told” that Simon was the mastermind behind IHJZ. JIll was probably complaining about the blog while they were getting ready to go out and mentioned Simon. Becuase she blames Simon alot when she feels picked on by people on social media or internet. She thinks Simon has robots in his basement ruining her Bravo polls. Simon does have a social media consulting business so Bobby could find Jills allegations reasonable.

    Personally, I think Bobby is a very nice guy. He reminds me of my uncle. Unfortunately Jill reminds me of my aunt who is a raging diva.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Jill’s minions tried to attack Mario as a cheater via a fortune teller and now they are going after Simon as a cyber bully!

    • personally i think Bobby is a asshole
      how on else can you explain his attraction to that Viper
      and how dare he confront Simon about where he does or doesnt go on the internet
      when that BITCH uses twitter to constantly rip her cast mates apart

      • Amber...Real Wife says:

        DISS CLAIMER as It’s about to get naughty…

        DQueen you know better than that! You know poor Bawwbby can’t keep his mind right when Jillousy kneels down in her Squish girdle and he drops his DependsDrawers to his cankles! She a seductive witch, with red hair flowing over her dowager’s hump, making him fall into a trance to do her evil bidding! As Jill does the unthinkable to Bawwbby, the act that only prostitutes and homeless men would do, “Oh Yes” she says..”If I Go Down, Everyone Will Go Down Too!”

  39. plainviewsue says:

    Between laughing out loud when Ramona called Luman a man, Lulu proving she can’t carry a tune, and Ramona’s take on Jill with the wig, I was having a blast watching. But when Bawby mentioned this blog, my screams could of woken the dead!!!!!!!! Lynn, I am soooo proud of you and everyone who uses this blog to vent their frustration out on this horrendous woman.

    Note to Bobby……stop defending your wife’s behavior. I realize you need to or she will make your life miserable. How proud you must be of her when she screams out loud what you buy for her and how much it costs. She is a vile woman who must be off this show for the next season.

    Obviously, the producers have no use for Kelly, because for two weeks in a row she was hardly in it. Dump her as well.

    Interesting that Cindy was working out with Alex.

    Loved Sonya just showing up at Avery’s party. Jill……..SHUT UP!!!! Sonya is a grown woman and can attend whatever party she wants to.

    Disappointed that Jill wasn’t asked any really tough questions. But when she said she had 150,000 followers, I again screamed in glee………..YOU ARE GOING DOWN BITCH!!!

    • nathania says:

      plus in all her talking heads this season Sonya has kind of hinted that her behavior/decisions are the way things are *done* in the circles she used to travel in. She really is the one who should have written a book on ettiquette and class. I love that she pointed out about Luann purposely scheduling Victoria’s party on the same night as Avery’s, long after the date had been taken, and that Luann was always canceling plans with her in the last minute.

      Honestly I believe were it not for the bankruptcy and divorce proceedings that Sonya has been dealing with she and Lou ann the Lesser would have had a bit of a show down this season. Too bad it did not happen. Because it seems like Sonya actually was in a marriage to her husband and accompanied him in social circles whereas lou ann was in a marital contract but not a real marriage.

    • nathania says:

      another thought, you can just about use those mad libs things to predict what Jill is going to say about anyone, any time at all, it’s almost compulsive with her…”oh my god, I can’t believe she __________ with ___________, can you believe this __________, its the worst ever, when my friend___________ had her___________ it was so much bettah, plus when you ___________ you are supposed to ___________ and not ___________ I really can’t believe she ____________, how do you think that made ___________ feel, it was her____________ and everyone was ___________. I mean, really, _____________, could you have been any more ___________. Most people know you are supposed to ____________ when you ____________ or everything gets ____________.

      Literally, every single time she has a scene, this is her monologue.

  40. NightLight95 says:

    I didn’t catch the episode last night but looking at the images above with Victoria’s birthday cake I have a very very serious question: did Dwight from RHOA get a hold of the cake and inserted the roses? 🙂

  41. brooklyngirl says:

    Lynn and Quincy, Thank you for this blog. Last night: way too much JZ — the episode and then WWHL. Why does Andy keep kissing her ass? And her saying Ramona has had a bad season was just disgraceful. Makes my blood boil. I keep hoping JZ gets trashed but good but it never seems to happen (except for Jay Mohr and jerry Seinfeld, whom I loved for telling it like it is). Keep up the great work!

    • Adgirl says:

      I know, I know!
      Whether we like it or not Jill is the “face” of RHNY and because she is controversial she brings in the ratings. Andy knows what he’s doing. It infuriates us that she gets away with everything. Fury= investment in the show= ratings.

      • quincyil says:

        We are old timers here. I bet a lot of people will come back to say, “HI!”

      • i dont see her as anything but what she is the reason ratings are down

        you know none of these shows ratings are really that great at the moment sometimes all my childrens are exactly the same and you see what they did to that LOL

  42. Thedesigndiva says:

    Good friday ALL…..What a wonderful ending to this weeks episode..
    The man is no dummy….He knew EXACTLY what he was doing when he mentioned the BLOG !!!
    How smart and cunning is he…!!!! Watch and See what happens next…….
    That is all for now..
    have lots more to read

  43. FLG says:

    Good Morning All! Wow, congratulations, thank you and hugs to Lynn and Empress Quincy for all the hard work. It paid off big time last night! I enjoy bantering with all of you! One thing I noticed last night that I haven’t seen mentioned in this morning’s posts is that Ms. Hostess with the mostest, LuAnn Countess Squash Blossom High Horse forgot to invite Gloria-Mother’s-Not-Happy and Ally to Jillzy’s birthday bash. Seems like a rather large oversight to me LuAnn. Is there a chapter regarding invitations in your book? You might want to take another look, or better yet, see if you can find an out of print copy of one of Amy Vanderbilt’s books. If you can locate a copy, it has USEFUL information in it, rather than drivel. ((((((Lynn & Qunincy)))))

  44. Obsessed with RH says:

    I had the BIGGEST smile on my face last night when Bobby mentioned this blog. I LOVED it!!! I want to echo previous comments that have said that if Bravo didn’t HEAVILY edit their comments then a forum like this wouldn’t exist. Although I have to say I’m selfishly happy they do because I love this blog, the people, obviously Lynn and Quincy and without it I wouldn’t get to read their hysterical commentary on all the HW shows and other reality TV. So thank you JZ for being such a nasty human being because without you, this blog wouldn’t exist.

    I do have a question for anyone who could shed some light on this…..Bobby VOLUNTARILY married JZ…..The guy seems like he’s a semi-educated man….how could he possibly have EVER wanted to spend the rest of his life with HER? I have to assume that he lost a bet or something because no one would voluntarily spend every day with HER.

    • Adgirl says:

      LOL! Just last week I had a comment on the Bravo board appear that was completely edited. It wasn’t mean or anything either.

      I think Jill reminds Bobby of his own mommy. So, he feels comfortable with her and his role.

    • nathania says:

      she’s a faaaaaarrrrrrrrrrreakkkkkkkkkkkkkkk of some kind in bed.

      it’s probably a diaper fetish/mommy thing or something they share.

  45. Not sure if anyone has seen this but it seems appropriate because of Ramona’s woman/man comment. Someone posted it on Twitter, I can’t believe the resemblance.


  46. Mum says:

    Lynn, for some reason I think you gave me the ax but wanted you to know I loved your blog post today and it is similar to my view. Thanks.

  47. Mum says:

    Also, there is no question that Jill earned this blog.

  48. quincyil says:

    rotfl. I sent a tweet to Lynn telling her that it was a secret that we really work for Jill Zarin and then I checked my email. I think a lot of people want the lowdown on our boss Jill Zarin. She pays us in cupcakes and then gives us a 10% discount on girldles.


  49. Golden Girl says:

    I think that when Bravo showed the footage of how smelly Cindy was that had to be their way of giving her the pink slip from this show lol.

    • I think Bravo finally came to their senses because they cut back Cindy’s airtime. In the beginning of the season, she had way too much airtime. I hope Bravo realizes that she is an annoying bore and they should let her go.

  50. Dwight Schrute says:

    To Bobby Zarin:

    When Alex or Simon have commented on Jill Zarin, they have done so completely out in the open. This is the opposite of your wife, who has hidden behind false monikers to slam books written by other housewives. When you were discussing this with Simon, I wish he had brought the matter up with you because I’m interested in your reaction to that.

    Interesting question on WWHL last night. I’m paraphrasing but Jill was basically asked if she was a bit hypocritical talking about taking the high road while simultaneously attacking others. She defended her attacks. Hey, her 150,000 twitter followers expect her to tell it like it is. But she failed to address how doing so is the complete opposite of the moral high ground she’s claiming to have.

  51. Amy Matheson says:

    I would think there is SOMEONE less disgusting than Jill out there that would have also be willing to give Bawwby BJs for bawwbles.

    You settled too soon, bro. Too soon.

    • any 2 bit hooker near the lincoln tunnel at 3 am can give him a better one

      and he is so used to tranny hookers after all he married one

    • nathania says:

      I’m thinking so too, look at hugh hefner…

      I wonder what his net worth is compared to bawbys.

      if hefner can get 5 or 6 dozen 22 year old barbies at 80 then surely bawby can get one at his age…

      my feeling is jill wrapped herself around him like an octupus and would not let go for dear life, and she is soooooooooo cray zee that no gold digger dare approach.

  52. Thedesigndiva says:

    The video footage of this show will be used against a certain ” HW ” when a certain ” HWH” figures out that he has a pawn in a horrible game….Bet he has someone order those online DVD’S in how to use the internet !!!!! stranger things have happened behind those “mansion” doors…….LOL
    As my daddy always said…Be careful of the toes you step on today..for they may be attached to the ass you’ll be kissing tomorrow….
    More reading to do…..

  53. FLG says:

    I noticed that while Jillzy was getting her face reconstructed they kept flashing to her ring. I guess that is the “mommy diamond” that is always in the “vault”. Hey Jill, why don’t you put THAT on charitybuzz…..

  54. Zoey says:

    What they all don’t get is that this is just as much a ‘love’ blog for all of us as it is a place to vent (or explode if we can’t!) about our feelings for the raging maniacs on these shows. This blog has a lot more positive than it has negative, and the negative is not generated here, it is only reiterated from what we’ve seen on the TV.

  55. T-REX says:


  56. Adgirl says:

    I’ve disliked the show so much this season that didn’t even bother turning it on until midway. Suddenly, on my television screen was this monsterous vision of a LouAss in her gown and Vegas headgear. Oh crimmy!

    LOL. Someone on this board last night said she looked like the puppet Madame from Wyland and Madame.
    Hysterical. Here, look for yourself:

  57. jeepers1941 says:

    Good morning everyone,
    I am wondering why we haven’t heard from Vinny yet? I would think he has some kind of comment(s) about the show last night, not that I care all that much about him and all his BS about jz. I think of him as I do the trolls that come here to stir up as much shit as possible for this blog site.
    As for Bobby Zarin, he is a real piece of work. What was his purpose for mentioning Lynn’s blog as a “hate blog” site. How would he know this as fact, because his wife told him so?
    Real stars I am sure read stories about themselves, the good, the bad and the ugly. They do not respond because they know it comes with the territory of being a star. So what does this say about jz? She is not the big star she thinks she is no matter what Andy Cohen tells her.
    We have a right to express our thoughts about anyone who places themselves out for the public to view. So why do they bitch about the attention they recieve? Since when does this person have the right to bully those who are just stating how they feel about anything, be it a tv show or a person who appears on these shows. As for that matter, those who willingly put themselves on public display are asking for it, stars, or public officials elected to a post. This is a right given to us and this is one right I will fight for……. 😦

    • justanothermary says:

      Too funny, I was thinking about Vinny also. You KNOW he’s one of Jill’s minions. He was clever at first, but eventually it all became clear. Everytime someone calls him on being hired by Jill he fades for a while and them returns. I’ll bet we hear from him soon.

    Oh, congrats Lynn and Quincy! I went out for fun and frolic so watched late. I nearly choked on my cupcake when Bobby referred to the Hate Blog!!! You can’t pay for that kinda publicity and it is what JZ lives for. How hilarious is it that he sent lots of new folks to do a search on google for hate blog JZ? His tough guy demeanor was so damn funny! So, what cha gonna do ’bout it pardner? Hoot and a holler and a half. Simon’s face was priceless. Sometimes I just love BRAVO editors! They so could have cut this exchange!!! They must secretly love this blog.

    I loved when Avery said I don’t want it to seem like a Bat Mitzvah with the theme thing. Party on.

    I tried to watch JZ on WWHL but when she faced the camera with “Mommy…” in high whine I was just repulsed. I was channel surfing during most of that show so missed the poll question and whatever that Adam guy said.

    Anyway, thanks for this fabulous blog and I just love that the comment section of the network blog is still sending people here! This is the gift that just keeps on giving.

  59. UnderMyWheels says:

    I’ve read this blog for a long time and rarely comment, but YOU HAVE ARRIVED LYNN!
    I almost fell out of bed when the skeevy Bobby mentioned it!

    Best. Episode. EVER.

  60. Error404 says:

    I actually have a stupid question: at the ” surprise party” ( sure it was a surprise, that’s why she just happened to get $1,000s worth of Botox just before) when they thought Jill was coming but instead it turned out to be this 7′ tall drag queen, they all started saying “oh, it’s just Howie”….. At first it thought they were being awfully blaze about howie showing up in full on drag, but then I thought maybe it was howie’s date, the amazon that’s mad at ramoner. I’m so confused.

  61. Jane says:

    I would love to see how Jill would have to deal in the real world—you know a world where no one cares about her? Bravo, please–can Jill. We are all tired of her.

    • Error404 says:

      I think we are getting a good picture of real world Jill and her uber loyal support group of family and friends. Personally, I’ve never been to a birthday party where the friends give love poem speeches about how wonderful the birthday girl is, but I live under a rock. Before RHNY the zarins climbed the social ladder rung by rung, gving money to lots of places and making sure it was all reported in the gossip pages. Jill goes to everything invite or not, and works the room, and as we see every week, she also has her friends and family follow up with “isn’t she just swell” visits or if need be “why were you mean to poor Jill” confrontations.

  62. dianahelen says:

    love the blog. I think it is so interesting that the more Bobby (whatadick) and Jill try to control other peoples comments and views of them the more they look like idiots that are totally self serving and full of themselves. They care only about their status and how much they have as opposed to how little the rest of us have….our noses pressing the glass on the window to their wonderful lives.

    We may have ordinary lives but most of us are not consumed with making others feel bad so we can feel good.

    Blog is good and reflects exactly what is seen on the show and therefore stands on it’s own merits.

    Argue all you want ole pretentious Bobby but what we see is what we get and you can get over it.

    • FLG says:

      Yesterday, I was busy all day in the kitchen preparing lunch for 30 of hubs co-workers. I didn’t get to enjoy your company as much as I usually do because of that. I hope you don’t mind me re-posting this from late last night, but I posted it after midnight:
      Mr. Robert Zarin, be careful, very careful. Jill relentlessly attacked Alex, then Bethenny, this year it is Ramona. One by one every year she has a feud with somebody. What are you going to do when it’s your turn? Someday if she decides that you have outlived your usefulness to her, she WILL turn on you. Read my post on the last blog about my Uncle and Aunt who divorced after 43 years of marriage. Jill Zarin is a carbon copy of my Aunt. To semi-quote the movie Ghost: “Bobby, you in danger, girl”.

    • withoutadick is more like it

  63. Amy Matheson says:

    Dear Cindy – Please do not blog anymore. Ever. Thank you.

    From her blog: “(Red faced) Yes, I worked out prior to my second workout with Alex and my sweatshirt didn’t smell fresh. I grabbed the sweatshirt after not wearing it for a year.”

    Wow. My own made up explanation for why Cindy smelled bad was no where near as awful as the truth.

    • T-REX says:

      OMG! I have sweatshirts in a drawer for workouts, before placing them in that drawer they are WASHED! So, should I have had to pull out something a year old(which Cindy I don’t believe you did that), it would smell fine, some times because I am in Florida, it may be 6 months before I have to put on a sweatshirt because it’s so hot we don’t need them, and never once did they smell. Cindy as we have all seen is a “dirty” person, her home is dirty, she sits on countertops within mere inches of food with dirty bare feet. I would bet that her house doesn’t smell that good either, since she obviously just has dirty, smelly clothes lying around. YUCK!

    • FLG says:

      I wonder what Kelly would have to say about that?

  64. HD says:

    I’m embarrassed to say I missed the show last night. I have no clue what is going on. sigh…I can’t wait for the rerun! I feel so out of the loop. 😦

    Did Bobby really mention a “hate blog” on the show?

    • Golden Girl says:

      Yes he did 🙂

      • Golden Girl says:

        I’m sorry you missed the chat last night the board got a lot of new posters after Bobby made the comment.

        • HD says:

          Wow! Unbelievable! I would have never imagined in a million years that would come up on the show. Lynn you must feel amazing. Everyone knows he is talking about this blog.

    • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

      I missed it too but have been reading some other blogs & they have a lot of negative things to say about us…:P

      • Zoey says:

        I think they are either jealous because they are not part of the Lynn fam, or they have never been here and have no idea what they’re talking about. Either way, they’re looooosers!

        • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

          I agree Zoey~ for some reason people who behave so badly are given pass because they think it’s funny or adds to the drama. I think when it hurts real people the pass is taken away & you have to be held responsible.
          I also thought Bobby knew exactly what he was doing.

    • oh yeah
      i was almost hoping he would spell out the web addy LOL

  65. skogsstig says:

    Who would’a thunk it? Bobby Z-man doing PR for this blog? Too funny….
    Ive been here since before the move to wordpress, and have loved every minute of it. Lynn, you’re fabulous. Quincy, you have added so much to the blog! ♥ to both of you – and to all the posters. 🙂

    • Golden Girl says:

      You should read what Thedesigndiva wrote unthread about Bobby doing PR its hilarious.

    • quincyil says:

      Lynn and I are loyal employees of Jill Zarin. It’s our job to make sure her name stays up there in lights. I climb the ladder and Lynn hands me the new light bulbs.

      I did not know for sure that all of the thinks I was picking up with my spidey sense were true until last night. I knew Jill was obsessed last June. I followed her twitter and read articles about her as well as watched her on the show.

      Everything I know came from my boss, Jill Zarin.

      BTW. she gave me the idea for the “I Love Jill Zarin” blog on the prairie by quincyil. She gave me all of the content for that blog too.

    • Zoey says:

      Maybe Lynn should send him a thank you note!!! lol. That would get the old red-headed hag’s ire up!

  66. Dani says:

    Great blog Lynn and Q. I loved it when Bobby brought up your blog to Simon. You know it must just drive Jillously crazy not to have any control over this blog. I haven’t been watching HWNY, however, I did catch the episode last night and I was so thrilled that Bobby mentioned your blog. Thanks Bobby for the shout out and letting all the viewers know that they can come here and their comments will be posted unlike Bravo’s blog. After watching last nights episode I still hate Jill Zarin.

  67. Adgirl says:

    LouAss in her Silence of the Lambs necklace, eeeeek!
    Yes, it was obviously a wonderful idea to abandon your 16 year old daughter and her friends at a nightclub downtown so you could visit with your friends.

    P.S. I think Bravo provided Victoria’s party and planned it for the same night as Avery’s. Ramona obviously paid for Avery’s per her talking head.

  68. kellynnola says:

    Some other blogs (that shall remain nameless) have a very negative perception of us. I wish they knew that we weren’t haters, and they would if they only read the comments.

    • quincyil says:

      Jil had a lot of people on her staff working out of the Zarin Fabrics Basement Enjoy this place. It will calm down after the show finishes in July.

      • FLG says:

        Empress Q, how are you doing? I was out of town taking care of some pressing issues and then hubs and I met up for a much needed short vacation. I was able to check in a couple of times very briefly while I was gone. I think I read that you had lost your mare. I’m sorry for your loss and I don’t want to open a wound, but I want you to know that I’ve been thinking of you and hoping you are doing well. On a brighter note, I hope you’re feeling a wonderful sense of accomplishment for all the hard work you do here to provide us this forum. (((((Empress Q)))))

    • FlowerPower says:

      I find it striking how hung-up on the word hate some people get while spewing really vile, obnoxious comments themselves. The comments posted here are often well-thought-out, hilariously funny, and sometimes quite touching. Yes, there’s a lot of snark and calling-out of bad behavior, but nothing approaching the real hatred that I’ve seen on other blogs that might avoid the word hate but not the spirit of hatred.

      • MAMAZ says:

        Flower Power – I agree. On one site they are all so busy patting themselves on the back for being so much better than us. All the while are calling us hateful things.
        But it’s really very funny. They have as little self awareness as JZ and most of the H’wives.
        But I have to say that if we are willing to dish it out we have to be able to take it as well. The lesson Jill and Bawby can’t seem to grasp.

      • i used to think Lynn should change the name of the blog to make it more user friendly but now i am so glad she kept it as is
        its how we know that its the one Bawby mentioned last night

        andy blew it big time by not bringing that up last night

      • katlg says:

        FP, you know the saying “Water seeks its own level”. Well I do read other sites,( I don’t mean blogs because I do read many other blogs) and there are so many horrible things said, I don’t post read only and that is only when we at this blog are at a slow point.
        Let me tell you it is not pretty out there, I will stay here.

        • quincyil says:

          I think new people are always welcome. The rule is to discuss the opinion, not the person. We sometimes forget it, but it is a great guideline.


  69. kitkat says:

    Something tells me Bawby is just as bad as Jill. There was a couple that were friends with my parents and the guy was an awful, obnoxious boor. I would ask my mother, “How can she stand to be married to him, he’s horrible,” and my mom would reply, “she’s WORSE.” And sure enough, I would notice that she was, just quieter, sneakier…I find that applies to a lot of couples…Like attracts like…

    • Adgirl says:

      Kitkat… you are probably right! I always assume Bobby is a nice guy because I haven’t seen anything contrary to it. He is supportive of his frequently under attack wife. He seems to love that she is vivacious.
      For all we know he may be a first class jerk, especially in business..

      • kitkat says:

        I believe he does support her and sides with her. If she was my mother or my child I would have reigned her in. Her behavior is unseemly. I don’t get what’s in it for him to have her run around town like this.

      • Error404 says:

        He spends all his time on his crack berry and is often Mia at events.
        S1 he was distant and awkward with ally, like they had just met, yet he’d been married to Jill for years and years.
        Every time there is a family problem, he just seems to throw money at it.
        He seems to drink just as much as romona, or any of them really.
        He repeatedly allows his wife to speak over him and for him (Lix interview, shirt shopping, etc…)
        The playboy collection comment was, to borrow from Kiki, “creepy”.
        I’m so sick of him chastising the others for daring to upset his wife… Alex, bethenny, mario, Simon, and those are just the ones we know about…. I would have told him to go f himself. He pretends it’s peacemaking, but it’s really just arrogance and control. Nobody tells me what to say I don’t care how many $ you have.
        He seems to share jill’s idea that all favors must be repaid, reminding Simon that he took them for dinner. F off bawby, I’ll pay for my own dinner if it means I can keep my right to free speech.

        • justanothermary says:

          The real issue with Bobby is that he thinks his wallet is going to take another hit over this “hate” blog. Can you imagine how much cash this man as put out to “support” his wife in all her craptastic ventures and to clean up her messes? If it had been Simon’s doing, and Bobby could simply pay Simon off to make it all stop, he would have done so in a minute. However, Simon has nothing to do with it and Lynn and Q will be very expensive. Cash in you two – and share the wealth!!!!

          • Dani says:

            I don’t understand why it is ok for his wife to make nasty comments, however, it is not ok for anyone to talk about his.

            • Error404 says:

              The zarins buy loyalty. We see this over and over again. Friends are often described as ” projects” and some friends like the brunettes will only spew love love love for Jill publicly. Other friends like bethenny, Ramona Alex are reminded of all the zarins did for them and are called ungrateful.

              • Dani says:

                Great point Error404. You are right, I forgot that they pay for their friendship. That is why I love you, you always tie it up in a nice bow lol.

              • Caitlin says:

                Right on the money, Error – congrats!

  70. WindyCityWondering says:

    Last night’s episode seemed to be a failed attempt by Bravo to retool what is obviously a failed season. B filler scenes, cutting room floor rejects in a montage – just throw it at the wall and see what sticks!
    IMO, the editors had no idea what giving Bobby the hate blogger lines would really do. When Mario came up and said do you want to take this out on the patio – I was thinking that Simon was besting Bobby big time and then editing happened to make it a “gentlemen’s agreement” leader into next week’s cyber bullying beatdown.

    • kitkat says:

      It is not in BRAVO’s interest to have this blog succeed. It takes away their control of the story lines. That’s why they are so strict about who and what gets posted on their blogs. The blogs are meant to go hand-in-hand with the editing. The editing is designed to set up a story they are trying to spoon feed everybody…(Ramoner’s a drunk, Alex thinks she ‘s a model, but isn’t she deluded, etc…)This fab blog and it’s posters shoot holes in BRAVO’s thin story lines, and it’s “talent”, and Andy Cohen. I don’t think they’re thrilled with it, and I bet they read it every day. I am actually surprised BRAVO allowed it to be mentioned or alluded to last night. This blog must be making enough of an impact to get this attention! I know I am on every day, since before it even moved to WordPress. I’m trying to remember how I even discovered it, some media outlet mentioned it years ago…

      • quincyil says:

        I think the “Road to Marrakesh” was a flop and could not be used as a finale. Jill tried to have a war, but Ramona refused to fight. I think that they had things on film and perhaps read our fantasy story for a good laugh. Season Three was a hit from day one in the editing room. Season Four had to be delayed and they filmed fillers.

        Andy Cohen gets the episodes. He said that he had OC episodes in his computer for a trip he was taking.

        I doubt Bravo made Bobby ask Simon that question. Bobby probably thought he was helping Jill by shutting down Lynn’s blog. That is why the Katrina question was asked after Bobby and Simon has the handshake and Simon sat next to Jill on the couch asking for a peace summit. I think Jill expected the site to close down while she was on vacation in Aruba. In Jill’s mind it was all about Jill.

        If you go to the blogs at that time you will see we were having a wonderful time discussing BH. The comment section on the evening Jill posted was all about BH.

        This blog has a lot of discussions on a lot of shows. It really isn’t all Jill Zarin all the time.

        • Mimisfbay says:

          I think it is Kismet. The editors of the show and the blog Nazis are not the same, right? I think Jill said something to BZ about the mean old bloggers on IHJZ because she had gotten wind that Simon had posted. Probably her daily lurking or hired lurkers saw the innocent posts from him. Didn’t he even say Happy Mother’s Day? It backfired, as usual because she is unable to see anything except her warped view of the world. I love that the scene wasn’t edited because that smug jerk BZ was convinced that he was going to do some damage to Simon/IHJZ.

          Geez, who plans strategies with these turkeys? Oh, right, you can’t tell Jill anything. I remember the dog show…she is hopeless. I hate Jill Zarin!

          • quincyil says:

            Bobby said that he was getting dressed “this afternoon” for the sweet 16 birthday parties so that was in Dec. Simon posted in Feb and May here. That was long after Jill told Bobby that Simon has something to do with this blog.

            Simon was helping Kelly with her problem on twitter and he gave a link about Alex having a drink before delivery from their book and wished us Happy Mother’s Day. Both of these things are the words and behavior of a gentleman.

            • dsc60 says:

              when was the book signing? my immediate thought was that’s what upset JZ – that Silex was consorting with the enemy.

    • Sam says:

      My husband also believes that Bravo told Bobby to talk about the “hate blog.” Hubby thinks that Bravo knows the show is circling the drain and felt that the shout-out would be a good way to rekindle fans’ interest in it.

      • Adgirl says:

        If Bravo didn’t want the blog mentioned on the show they wouldn’t have aired that conversation. It’s their call. I have to agree that Bravo wants more controversy and to incite more debate about the show. If they aren’t happy with the results that haven’t lost anything.

  71. quincyil says:

    I went to Terry Ally’s site raw veggies on twitter and found this from Sept. before they filmed:

    This is a quote by Lynn:

    I Hate Jill Zarin Real Housewives of DC / Jill Zarin Sept…

    I wrote my first blog and it was printed as a guest blog for Terry Ally, a great guy that I met on Twitter. @RawVeggies He has a great sense of humor and I noticed that he had some similar thoughts about the Real Housewives of New York … –

    Terry Ally discovered Lynn. She posted on his site. He gave her a guest blog and then she went to hubpages and finally to word press. This is the accurate history of Lynn’s blog. Jill is fabricating and embellishing. I am giving you evidence of the truth.


  72. val says:

    Wow…I just got done watching New York and I haven’t read comments yet. I can’t believe you’re blog was mentioned on the show. It was your blog Bobby was referring to????? Lynn, did you have any idea before you watched?

  73. Adgirl says:

    Any idea about the date of the sweet 16 parties? I’m curious about Jill’s twitters and this blog in the week running up to it. Whatever she shared with Bobby to make him bring this up to Simon.

    Again, I (still) think Bobby does not use social media or the internet himself. He may like to sound current but he strikes me as old fashioned and too old dog to learn or to use it much. Jill is self obsessed so she does. Bobby gets his info from Jill and Durwood.

  74. Adgirl says:

    Are there any recaps up on other sites yet?

  75. Shannon says:

    Wow!! Congrats Lynn. I hope you get 1000’s of extra hits everyday thanks to Bobby. I guess that is why Jill had her trolls posting links to trick people into going to her site. She knew this was coming up and was trying to steal your hits. Maybe Bobby should do some research and see WHY people hate his wife. Since he is apparently to blind to see how awful a person she really is.

  76. quincyil says:

    Jill uses “F***.: i can’t even write the word. You can see that in every blog that I do. I think that word is one thousand times worse than “hate.” Besides, Jill calls us “Hate Bloggers” is that not equivalent to the name of this blog?

  77. Adgirl says:

    Bravo is purposely focusing on this blog the start a new Zarins vs. Silex war. If they didn’t want to air Bobby’s remark then it wouldn’t be on the show.

    Just watch … Bobby and Jill are going to flog this for weeks about how just when Jill sweetly made up with Alex, Simon and Alex have stabbed her in the back AGAIN! Rinse repeat.

    • quincyil says:

      I guess Alex will be blamed too. It’s in the commercial.

      This is unfair. Alex certainly did not have anything to do with this blog. She has two small boys and a busy career in NYC. She has her own site and her own twitter.

      She has no time for do this.

  78. Dani says:

    For me this season has been so boring. We have watched Jill go after each of the New York houswives (except for LuMan and of course the newest Cindy) on this season as well as previous. It is old and she has not changed. If anything she has gotten worse, because she thinks she is the star. I hope that we don’t have to watch another season with her and some of her other castmates. I think it is time for Bravo to put HWNY to bed and be in Jill’s words DONE WITH THEM!!

  79. justanothermary says:

    A very big shout out to Lynn and Q. I had to wake the dogs last night when Bobby mentioned the blog so I had someone to share the great news. They even got treats!

    I have experienced, more then most, the love and caring that is the real reason for this blog. Please don’t ever stop and don’t ever change the name.

  80. cabbie413 says:

    There seemed to be a lot more kids at Avery’s party than at Luann’s daughter party (i forgot her name)

    • well to be fair to Victoria all her friends are back in South Hampton If LuManaconda had still been a real countess she would have had them brought in
      and of course with Avery still living in NYC all her friends are there

  81. Ablack says:

    I am a RHW viewer, my favorite is RHWNJ. I watched RHNY last night and saw Bobby ask Simon about this blog. I looked up the “I hate Jill Zarin” blog and now I can’t take my eyes off of this blog. I love it! I like that your comments are fair. I am now a fan of your blog. Thank you!

    • California35 says:

      Welcome!! when you get a chance you should go back to old recaps…enjoy 🙂

      • Dani says:

        Welcome, it is a fun blog and we do care about each other very much. We just don’t care for the way that Jill Zarin acts. I think that you will find this out as you post.

    • Adgirl says:

      Welcome! Thanks for posting too. The more the marrier! We don’t stick to talking about Bravo either. We talk about everything except politics here. Lynn’s only rule is to be respectful of other posters.

    • plainviewsue says:

      I love that thanks to the Zarins more and more people are finding this wonderful blog. I’d love to be a fly on the wall of Jill & Bawby’s home…………BAWBY, WHY DID YOU HAVE TO MENTION THE BLOG!!!!!!!

  82. California35 says:

    I just have a few minutes to, BUT HAD to write something. I want to congratulate Lynn again and to all of us posters 🙂 I also wanted to browse to see if there were any new visitors 🙂
    I have not been able to read anything yet neither here or anywhere else, has Jill or anyone other wife made any coments about it at all? I know that Alex explained something last night on her blog, something that gave out even more attention to this blog but explaining she and Simon are not the creators of this blog.

    Ok – must go…got lots to do and then got two more things that I was not expecting…like an additional auditor. THANK GOD IS FRIDAY!!!

  83. quincyil says:

    I think asking Simon if he was responsible for a hate blog on national TV is a lot like the hits on Rammona and Mario that Jill did lately. How is it that she does not get in trouble for these lies?

  84. smompy says:

    My favorite moment from last night’s show, aside from Bobby Z’s should out to Lynn of course, was Ramona’s absolute glee in genuinely mistaking LuAnn for a drag queen. Ramona’s joy was so contagious that I found myself squealing with delight too, and also clapping like a trained seal. When I first saw Lulu gracefully(NOT) sauntering down those stairs, I was reminded of that episode of I Love Lucy where Lucy gets a part in a movie, playing a Vegas showgirl, but she has no lines and her feathered headdress is so big and heavy that she keeps falling over. That faux movie scene ended with Lucy being gunned down, so I was kind of hoping Ramona might whip out a revovlver and put and end to LuAnn and her walrus-like caterwauling, but mistaking her for a tranny is the next best thing to shooting her in the head, I suppose.

    I’m sorry to all you twitter fans, but I curse the day that website was born. I just don’t get it. All the @this and @that, and the disjointed, random thoughts, and the prevalent lack of capitalization or punctuation just leaves me feeling confused…and also very over-the-hill. Darn you kids and your technological advances in communication!

    Perhaps Avery’s party did look like a little more exciting than Victoria’s….it definitely looked more expensive…but I still feel it’s pretty effed up to attack a sixteen year old girl who, as far as I know, has never deliberately done anything to hurt anyone, simply because her mother is a bitch on a TV show. I hate Lulu at least as much as anyone else and more than many here, but knowing what a P.O.S. LuAnn is doesn’t make me want to hate or attack her daughter…it only makes me feel sorry for her. And aside from her one time use of a fairly common (and contextually benign) expression while skyping with a close friend, I’ve seen ZERO evidence that this girl is any sort of white supremacist or KKK member. Her party dress wasn’t unusually short for a kid these days, and she and her friends looked to me to be acting perfectly normal at that party. In fact, they even seemed to actually appreciate the lame “entertainment” that LuAnn arranged. Geeze, give the poor kid a break…how’d you like to have Lulu as a mom?!? Anyway, I really hope Victoria never reads things like this, but if she ever did, I’d want her to know that not everyone in the world believes she’s a racist or a slut or a slob or a bad person. To me she appears to be a bright, attractive, nice, normal teenage girl, and personally I wish her lots of good luck and happiness in life. Come to think of it, these are exactly the same things I feel about Avery.

    • 2Stupid says:

      ITA Smompy. If I was held accountable for all the stupid things I said and believed at 16, I would still be saying Hail Mary’s. I really feel like children should be off limits. Is Victoria’s friends a little more mature than Avery’s probably, but that doesn’t make them bad kids. Has Victoria probably heard racist remarks in her house, maybe. Shoot you don’t become your own person untill you have lived out on your own and come up with your own opinions. Do I condone the slur she used, absolutely not. Is it unfourtnately, a part of slang used by teenagers (whom I don’t think fully understand the hurt it can cause), yes. I would feel more comfortable if we thought of how we would feel if someone was saying things about our daughter. I truly hope no one is offended, but I did have to give my opinion.

      I agree smompy. Especially about Victorias use of the N word. It was insensitive and misguided but it wasn’t racist.
      I think Victoria is a pretty girl. I did mention last night that she dances as badly as her mother sings but hell she isn’t claiming to be a ballerina so no big deal. I can’t dance myself.
      Both parties looked like fun. I don’t see any harm in holding a party in a club. Many clubs hold all ages, no alcohol, events.
      I also don’t think the “bed” was a big deal either. It wasn’t a true bed. When Avery sat down she commented that it wasn’t like a mattress. Because it wasn’t a mattress. It was a banquette designed to look like a bed.
      I also see nothing wrong with Ramona serving alcohol to adults at Avery’s party. But Ramona didn’t need to comment on the location of Victoria’s party either.
      But LuAnn should not have left her daughters party until it was over.

    • Adgirl says:

      ICAM Smompy. The kids on these shows really have it tough.

    • L2Day says:

      Victoria is a racist and she gets it from her racist parents. Out of mouth flows the abundance of the heart. She said it and that’s what she is.

      • MAMAZ says:

        Southeast VA & L2Day – I think anytime that word is used by a white person it is racist. But I don’t think Victoria’s intention was racist. She’s young and foolish. She doesn’t realize that co opting the language of another culture is insensitive.
        I don’t know that her parents are racist either. Her father dumped her mother for an African woman. LuAnn did say the Count wouldn’t like her dating a Jew so he’s possibly anti semetic. I say possibly because divorcing couples frequently try to paint the ex in as bad a light as possible. But LuAnn doesn’t seem to mind that Jaques is Jewish.
        I think she’s a horrible snob but I think she’s an equal opportunity snob. As long as you have money and connections I don’t think she cares what color, ethnicity or religion you are.

      • Smompy says:

        Yes, of course, whenever an anonymous person on a blog declares something to be true, even though they provide neither a logical argument nor any evidence to support their position, then obviously that declaration MUST be true.

        I realize this probably sounds crazy to some people, but I’m thinking the fact that Victoria’s father left his white wife to go live with an African woman might tend to suggest that maybe he doesn’t actually hate black people all that much. And being that Victoria herself was neither addressing nor discussing any African American person or people, but instead speaking directly to her own white friend when she uttered the (unfortunately common) expression, you are my n*gg*, I can still see no god reason to label this sixteen year old girl, who none of us has even even met, “a racist.”

        But hey, if summarily judging & condemning teenage strangers based on a minscule amount of very shaky evidence is what floats your boat, have at it. It’s a free country.

        • SoutheastVA says:

          Notice that I said “it” was racist. I didnt say she or her parents are racist. Non-African Americans using the term is racist and African-Americans using the term is self hate. I spoke to the action not the person. I was deliberate in my choice of words.

          Love y’all and this board.

        • nathania says:

          is that the context?

          I don’t think imitating rap makes kids racist, if they are imitating rap slang. I didn’t know what the context was because I have never seen the video…

    • if it werent for twitter i never would have been friends with Lynn or found out that she had a blog

    • I LOVE that episode of I Love Lucy

      love when she says to the director after so many takes gone wrong

      wouldnt you like to see me die


      trivia for those that like that sort of thing The actor playing the director in this episode also played the Jewlery thief thats on the train ride back to nyc from california a few episodes after this one,lucielle was so impressed with him that she wanted him for that second show

      fave line from the train episode
      Conductor to Lucy (played by the same actor who played Freddy Fillmore on a game show eppisode and later played the next door Neighbour when they move to conn.)
      Madame did you stop this train but pulling that cord
      Lucys reply well i didnt stop it by dragging my feet

      they just dont get better then I LOVE LUCY

  85. Hi lynn, I usually just read ur blogs but after last nights episode I was really in awe!! Congrats on making it to tv!! I really hope that a lot more people will read ur blogs and see what a two-faced person both jill and luman are!! Kelly and cindy I believe were just fillers when bethanny left because bethanny brought such a fun real dynamic to the cast that without her they actually had to add more people seeing how boring the other ladies were minus – ramona, alex and sonya!

  86. AZ Girl says:

    At work and just saw a tweet from jill that is really disturbing. Something about Delta airline’s using racial profiling to prevent jewish people from flying to Saudi Arabia. What??????? Help me here. Am I reading this right?

    • VAgirl says:

      Please tell me she is not trying to get back at Delta airlines because SHE left a laptop on their plane and they couldn’t find it. Please tell me that’s not the case.

      • Jezzibel says:

        sounds like Jill’s typical smear campaign when she doesn’t get the super star treatment she thinks she deserves

    • Jezzibel says:

      Jill hates Delta for not bending over backwards to find her daughters laptop that she left on one of their planes..she b****ed about it on twitter instead of doing the adult thing and calling up Delta’s lost and found to file a notice of a missing laptop.

      • MAMAZ says:

        So now Delta is antisemetic?
        Their employees bettter watch their cats!

          @ Mamaz. LOL. If had been drinking milk it would be coming out of my nose I was laughing so hard.

      • FLG says:

        I seem to remember that Jillzy wasn’t happy with Delta and at the time, I don’t think it had anything to do with the computer loss. She was complaining about the ticketing agent and felt she wasn’t treated “in the style in which she has become accustomed”.

    • Amy Matheson says:

      If it’s true, it’s awful, HOWeverrrrr……..

      there is NO doubt, at least in my opinion, that Jill is just paying back Delta for not jumping at her beck and call to find that laptap that she left on their plane. They never did find it. So here’s your payback – nevermind the veracity of her tweet or not.

      Here it is: “Jillzarin Jill Zarin
      @DeltaAssist @lisawexler Is it true Delta will ban people who have been to Israel or”look” jewish from traveling to SaudiArabia in new deal?

      • Sam says:

        Actually, the rumor about Delta is all over the Internet — to the extent that Delta had to officially rebut it. USA Today just reported on this in an article entitled “Airline to Jewish rumor: ‘Delta does not discriminate.'”

      • AZ Girl says:

        Thanks for posting the tweet. It will get deleted

        • she can delete her copy of it but once its out there others can copy and paste and retweet it

          • FLG says:

            I’m sure that Delta will be quite happy to never see her or her baggage again. As Countess Squash Blossom High Horse pointed out for Alex and the rest of us, even Louis Vuitton makes mistakes. Delta’s was allowing “Mrs. I’m used to chartered flights” on one of their planes to begin with, but, like all retail, you don’t control who comes through the doors or sits on your public sofas.

    • plainviewsue says:

      Someone posted this on facebook, and apparently, it is true. Believe it or not, this is not Jill Zarin’s fault……….LOL! You know what. Everything is her fault!

      • MAMAZ says:

        Just because it’s on facebook doesn’t make it true.
        Delta has addressed this issue and it is a complicated one.

        The Saudi government doesn’t allow anyone into their country who has an Israeli stamp in their passport. They Also don’t allow anyone to bring in any non Muslim religious items like The Bible.
        Delta doesn’t even fly to Saudi Arabia. So they can’t ban anyone from flying there.
        What Delta has done is enter into a business alliance with Saudi airlines which is mostly about ticket purchasing.
        I think it’s wrong of Delta to enter into this arrangement with a country that discriminates against, Jews, Christians and women. But it’s innaccurate to suggest that Delta will be profiling Jews.
        Based on Delta’s new association with Saudi Airlines the consumer has every right to not fly on Delta. But you’d better check each airline before you buy any ticket.

          I was wondering about Saudi Arabia allowing anyone visa with a Israeli stamp on their passport. I had read that before somewhere. I know Saudi’s are very strict about who they allow into their country. I saw the MSNBC article today after the tweet about Delta.

  88. MAMAZ says:

    Simon vs. Bawby

    I don’t care for either of these men.

    Bawby obviously has a right to talk to a “friend” about a perceived slight to his wife. But Bawby should have taken into consideration that Jill planted the drunk story about Simon. Didn’t she even admit to doing it and apologizing? And has he forgotten the bad reviews for the McCord/VanKempen books that were placed by the same false reviewers that were praising Jill’s book? And all the trash she has talked about Silex and their children?

    I do feel that Simon is way too involved in the Housewives show. Has been since the beginning. Attending an all girls dinner, sucking up to Jill every chance he gets even at the expense of his wife. While I don’t think he lied about being involved with this blog I would have respected him much more if he had reminded Bawby of all JZ’s media leaks and told him as politely as possible to butt out. He is trying to play both sides of the fence and that never works out well.

    • Error404 says:

      RHNY men are way more involved than any other hw show. Mario has been like an 8th hw for years now, tennis match, rematch, “countless”, now cheating, he has a major storyline every season. Sometimes bravo slips up and lets us see the show behind the show, like when they show bawby puling castmates aside for a godfather like chat…. I think it’s naive to belive mr zarin isn’t a self appointed assistant producer who tries to control the show behind the scenes. This is nothing particular to Simon IMO. Any other show, the husbands only get involved she theta re rudely involved in real life, being teressa’s brother, camille’s real-a-tour, etc…. But in NYC bawby, Mario, Simon, all are like regular cast.

      The ” Simon’s not a housewife and should shut up” movement also reminds me of the clintons and how everyone wanted Hillary to just go away. No one in real life expects people’s spouses to just disappear, so why demand it of public figures. I had to put up with my sister’s horror show of a husband for 8 endless years, 5 minutes of Simon a wekl doesnt bother me.

      • MAMAZ says:

        I’m not suggesting he disappear. But it is my opinion that he is vying for camera time more than any other Housewife husband with the exception of Slade Smiley. And that in doing so he has courted JZ even when she’s mistreating his wife. And cowtowing to Bawby Zarin instead of standing his ground. In Kellyspeak, he’s being inauthentic.

        • L2Day says:

          MAMAZ, everything you stated about Simon is true, especially kissing the Zarin’s azzes at the expense of his wife.

        • its not true Mamaz Mario gets just as much air time as Simon despite the fact he is less interesting but more attractive
          I used to hate Mario but have grown fonder of him each season
          I always liked Simon
          he is a very loving and supportive man to his wive
          something that is very rare in the franchise

          • MAMAZ says:

            DQ – We’re just going to have to agree to disagree on this one. Something about Simon justrubs me the wrong way.
            But I adore you and your posts! 🙂

            • kitkat says:

              I AGREE! Something about him does rub me the wrong way too. He threw Alex under the bus a couple times just to apppease those shrews..remember his failing at being her “wingman” in front of Jill and Jen at Kelly’s club event? And also at the 2nd Ramoner wedding. I get that he was trying to lighten a mood, but wrong way. My husband would never psuedo-side with people that hate me! Not even playfully.

            • Oh thanks Mamaz i adore you and yours as well
              we will have to agree to disagree on this

      • Amber...Real Wife says:

        ITA NY without Simon, wouldn’t be as funny, as is Mario who doesn’t respect the pecking order ATALL. The only one we can do without is the AARP’s JewishMafia’s -What the hell’s stopping ya- BawwbbyTheSwatchZarin. Give it up Bawwby we know you’d never throw a punch in your life!

  89. IndianaHousewife says:

    FYI – Jill’s blog is up on Bravo. Has anyone else received the exclusive newsletter or have I been blocked?

    • Debbie says:

      Bwahahah!!…Indiana.. I just checked my email and I don’t have it yet.. I find it really funny that ‘am i blocked?” is our first reaction to that question. It goes to show that Jill’s reaction is widely accepted. That she pays people to search out negative reaction and scrub her lists is , to me, hysterical.

    • let me check my email

      • from the witchs blog:
        In the final scene of the episode you see Bobby, Simon and Mario at the bar. Bobby had been hearing from multiple sources that Simon was heavily engaging in mean tweeting of Kelly and me. Bobby rarely interferes with any of this as he generally thinks it’s all nonsense. Bobby on his own felt that he needed to have an adult conversation with Simon asking him nicely to stop this behavior. Simon agreed and shook Bobby’s hand. Clearly, Simon was not sincere and is still mean tweeting the both of us. If you want to see the tweets that Simon has sent, let me know on jillzarin.com. Simon had deleted some of them after he spoke to Bobby that night, but my cyber assistants have screen shots of them.

        what a sick and twisted bitch she is i must start saving all her bitch remarks
        oh she also puts down ramona again and again i guess that doesnt make her queen of the cyber bullys
        ps i only posted a portion of her blog so she can kiss my ass

  90. Jill’s Bravo blog is up. She didn’t mention anything about this blog but she claimed that Bobby confronted Simon about his “mean tweets” to her and Kelly.


    • quincyil says:

      We heard him say “hate blog” and “hate mongers.”

      • Oh I know, I heard him say it too. I wonder why she didn’t mention the “hate blog” in her Bravo blog.

        • vilzvet says:

          Because she is desperate to NOT bring any more attention here! Gotta love it! She is lamely only referring to Simon’s tweets. Simon tweets all day long, nothing new there. She is in Ignore This Blog mode, and it is way too late.

    • T-REX says:

      That’s because Jzilla and Bawby got “busted” on here for again lying about Simon’s and Alex’s involvement with this blog. I am sure Jzilla or her many minions that read this blog realized that Lynn and Q have backup to prove and clarify everything involved in the initial accusations. We here that post, also keep a running list of what was actually said or posted. We may be blog supporters of this wonderful place but one thing we are not is stupid, and most certainly Lynn and Q are not just witty, they are “brighter than your average bear”. Jzilla and company tried to create a drama with half truths and mere assumptions and once again shown to be the 2-faced liars that they are!

    • kbinldo says:

    I am starting a rumor now, please take note and share with all of your friends:

    Someone..who will remain nameless was with Bobby in the afternoon before the Sweet Sixteen Parties and he was getting dressed. That person in the room when he was putting on clothes after not having cloths on…talked to him and told him Simon was running this blog.

    If it was not Jill, I think we have to goods on Bobby Zarin. If is was Jill, we have the goods on Jill Zarin.

    If was was Darren or Maggie (Jill’s assistants) in the room when Bobby was getting dressed…. we have another story to tell.

    Who was it JIll? We should have know this question and submitted it to the reunion.

        • Sure Bawby bought her $350,000 worth of jewelry, just like he bought her a yellow farrari.

          Didn’t someone say that that Bobby’s money is in a trust for him and his sister- and that it’s worth 35 million in various holdings. I doubt that he would spend 1/100 of his shared wealth to buy Jill more jewelry.

          I’m waiting to here ‘Bawby and I sold my jewelry at the height of the market- aren’t we smart?”

          • FLG says:

            With the supplier mentioned, I’m sure Jillzy made sure they got a HUGE discount, if the items were purchased. Often times expensive pieces are loaned out. No way do I believe it was a surprise gift. Jillzy always tags along while Bawby shops for her gifts. Remember the watch she had to have? She was trying to get him to spring for other items that time as well.

  96. whitney says:

    I logged on out of curiousity following the mention of a hate blog in last night’s episode… I have to say, the recaps are mildly funny (though not as funny as those on nymag.com). Mostly, though, I’m shocked to see so many women spew so much hate into the world. Most everyone on this blog complains that Jill Zarin is this terrible, awful, hate-filled gossiper… and, well, honestly, I can’t see a difference between what you all say about Jill and yourselves (case in point… this forum is actually called a HATE blog). It’s sad that so many people answer hate, gossip and bullying with more of the same. Its pretty clear that this blog hurts and upsets Jill, so why keep it up and keep posting such negative and hate-filled words on a public forum? Its just another form of bullying. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not Team Jill and I’m not defending the questionable things she’s done over the course of a few drama-filled seasons. The RHONY is my guilty pleasure and I do love the drama and each one of the women is crazy (and at times very mean)… Jill is no worse (and no better) than the next housewife. I’m not trying to be mean to you and your followers… but I was just trying to point out that we all contribute so negatively to the perpetual cycle of bullying. We are all mean girls in one form or another… But I really don’t think Jill (or any other housewife) deserves a hate-filled blog. I think there are far better things we could do with our time…

    • Nancy says:

      Thank-you for sharing.

    • 2Stupid says:

      Could you please provide examples of where we are expounding hate rather that siting examples of contemptible behavior. If you followed this blog, you would know most of us here really care about each other. We have helped each other true daily life issues, work issues, health scares, actual illnesss, loss of loved ones and so on. We are very fair and welcome divergent opinions. I think the idea that “hate” is in the title, calling it a hate blog is a cop out for someone that hasn’t real the comments. The term is used for alliterative purposes only. I think anyone that has been here really can see that. I welcome your opinions and hope you can show where we have been disrespectful or using actual “hate” terms.

      • plainviewsue says:

        One of the reasons this blog was created was due to the fact that Bravo would pick and choose their comments on the housewives blogs. It was frustrating.

        Jill was quite enjoyable during the first two seasons, but then her true colors came out in season three. She never owns anything that she does, she blames everyone else for what goes wrong and has let the “fame” take over her life. Why does this bother us? Because she says over and over again how nice she is, what a loyal friend she is.

        For me, it was what she did to Bethenny.

          I am so sick and tired of people using the word bullying so freely! This is not a bullying blog, we here register our opinions based on behavior exhibited on the various HW franchises. If one wants to address bullying let’s look at the kids that committed suicide or murder etc…because of
          real bullying, these kids were humiliated and beaten down emotionally etc. Let’s not even dare to compare blogging tweeting about a show to real bullying. Let’s get back to Mrs. Zarin – she expounded on Simon’s falling down drunk behavior to a NY columnist and it made the paper…she now is up in arms about people making comments about her on twitter, in blogs. Next weeks episode is about bullying, and of course we have Koo Koo Kelly that is leading the brigade. She is horrible this season and someone should adjust her meds asap! Hey Jill aren’t you a part time doctor – see what you can do!

      your welcome here and entitled to your own thoughts and opinions UNLIKE teh bravo blog that censors everything and deletes what it chooses

      ps that being said what you do with your rime is your buisness what we do with ours is of course ours
      this blog isnt only about hating Jill
      its just what brought us altogether

    • kitkat says:

      This is totally Jill, or her lame-ass sister.

    • No one compels Jill to come here and read the comments. If someone places their hand on a hot stove and burns themselves, is the stove to blame? We haven’t said anything about Jill Zarin that is any worse than what she has said or did to her cast mates. Jill thinks there is one set of rules for her and one for everyone else.

      The negative comments here are our reactions to her behavior. It’s not reasonable or fair for her or anyone in the public eye to expect all the accolades and perks without any of the draw backs.

      But beyond all the gripping about Jill Zarin or XXXXX Bravolebrity, there is light, love and positivity here. I don’t expect you or anyone else who might be drawn to this blog after last nights episode to be able to detect it off the bat, but those of us who are regulars do.

    Oh what a year Osama Bin Laden was killed, Whitey Bulger was caught and Lynn’s blog finally made it to NY Housewives and I survived my niece and nephew for a week and a half. Does life get any better that this!!!!!!

    I want to personally thank everyone for their tips for the kids – shout out to Kotagirl, Rabble, Boston, Neroes, Iheart, Flowerpower and Nancy. We made mud pies (because it rained so much here in Boston) and did the chalk by the pool and it rained so we had a clean slate. We set up a tent in the back yard, but on the dry days set up large refrigerator boxes attached it to the tent and installed star watchers with used paper towel card board tunnels and he (2 year old) loved it. I know the coins were not popular here but step grand mother got him a piggy bank and told him to ask everyone for money and I made sure it was put in the piggy right away…. Funny – we went to the store and train station and he was asking people for money for his piggy. I was embarrassed and told him you should not ask people you don’t know for money but now after the fact the faces of the people were hysterical…. People actually gave him money. Hmmm – I am in the wrong line of work, but then again I don’t have that sweet fresh face of a two year old and six month old.

    We did so much being in Boston we went to the Aquarium and Children’s museum and along the way I caught bronchitis and just overall exhausted, but it was well worth it. I now know the lyrics to Caillou, Fireman Sam and dreaming of Sprout network.

    On another note – Being sick I had a great deal of time to catch up. Lynn you are too good it took me days to catch up and I was so excited to watch this episode. Ramona is getting a little weird for me lately. I think she is trying to make a point but there is something underlining her reactions – not sure what it is.

    I DVR’ed the last episode and was furious at LuMann (High Horse – so don’t remember the full tag name which I love). Who the hell does she think she is? I was watching the behind the scenes Oprah and she was talking about the author that pretty much lied about the book a Million Pieces and she was saying how her last interview prior to the most recent she went after him because of her EGO and that is all I kept thinking watching high horse and Alex. I personally can’t stand her and so glad Catherine O said the things she did on WWHL.

    She really gets my blood burning. What is her contribution to society? Other than being a fake countess. Ugh, I would love to go to NY City and just give her a piece of my mind she drives me crazy, but I still hate Jill Zarin most of all.

    I miss Bethenny so much – we need a funny light hearted show to boost our moral… Hopefully Flipping Out will do.

    Oh and a shout out to all the Mom’s and Grand mothers out there (I have no children) – that is really hard work and just want to let you know – Your JOB is the hardest out there and every day should be mothers day!!!!! I’m exhausted.

    Again Congratulations to Lynn – I wonder if the next episode if Bobby will call her Susan, I mean Jill. Jill and Bawby – This blog is titled I HATE JILL ZARIN and I am not confused where I post….

    • neroes says:

      Furalis, Great job with the children. Yes it is exhausting but it sounds like you had as much fun as they did. I have 4 grown children and your right, it is a hard job, but also the most rewarding thing I have ever done.

    • kitkat says:

      WHat a great Tag, are you by chance named after that great Beethoven piece?

      • Furalis says:

        Yes – Beethoven my favorite piece. The piano plays from the heart. I am from Boston and everything is shortened – my name is Lisa and everyone calls me Lis (lease).

        Fur elise – “Fur’ is “for” in German and the rest “Elise”. So mine is “for a lis”. People don’t normally recognize this association so that is very nice that you made the connection. I love my tag name and am sure it will be stolen by a Lisa.

        Maybe Jill’s sister can take it for her own…..Or maybe Lisa from New England!!!!!

        • kitkat says:

          I have played the piano for about 10 years and that has always been my encore! Kind of like Micks “Satisfaction”! Ha Ha! Very clever 😉 I love the clever ones. I noticed a poster on RT blog named “Kakashka” and asked her if she was Russian. In Russian, kakashka means Little Shit. She was and loved that she got outed!

    • FLG says:

      What a wonderful post!

    • It sounds like you had a wonderful time. I kind of wish I was there , I especially would have loved to see the looks on peoples faces at requests for piggy bank money. 🙂

      • Furalis says:

        Funniest we were in the train station “choo choo” and here in boston college sudents play in the train stations for money and my nephew is walking around with piggy. I had to take the piggy away (honestly I was hoping he would drop it and break) but we survived and probably made out with more money that the performer.

  101. maryla says:

    Michaele Salahi performs her new song, “Bump It,” on NBC affiliate in Miami this morning. So unbelievably terrible. Just horrid. The outfit, the singing (worse than LuMan), the dancing. She is clearly not afraid of making a total ass of herself. And the poor UPS man in the black socks who raps with her. Oh goodness. It is just a mess all around.

    • Nancy says:

      Someone has to send this to Cat. What I’d give to see her reaction.
      Cat we want you in New York!!

      • MAMAZ says:

        Why do all the Housewives think they can sing?

        • some of them actually can most cant

          I bet Nene could sing them all under the table

        • Okie Folkie says:

          I’m not sure. BUT I do believe its all Kim’s fault! hehehe

        • Caitlin says:

          Do they turn out little putz producers like Luman’s by the dozen? It is people like THAT who need to accept responsibility for a lot of bad screeching on the airwaves. I have fallen in love with NBC’s “The Voice” this season (it’s sort of the anti-Idol). Adam Levine thought that one fellow who blind auditioned was a girl. And I laugh when I get a mental picture of what on earth he, or the other judges, would think of our Countess and her caterwauling. Thanks for letting me share – I feel better now!

    • “Bump It” is it a tribute to cocaine??

      • Golden Girl says:

        It usually is but I don’t want to say that is in fact what she was in reference to.

  102. Ames says:

    Thanks to Bobby for making sure Lynn quadrupiles her fan base! Lulu wore AssHat of the week due in part to her song and for wearing that huge ass hat!!!! Lol

  103. Let Me Confess says:

    Hi Lynn,
    I need to do some confessing here. First off, I am an equal opportunity housewife love to to hate. What i mean by that is, not only does Jill Zarin drive me nuts, but they all do at some point, that includes Bethenny. I guess you can say, I love to hate them all. With that said, I remember when I first heard of this blog, I thought to my self, “I hate Jill Zarin” of course chuckled, then when I read it, I thought, oo this woman is bitter with no reason to be. So, as time went by, I came across one of your Winning Beauty Pageants Pod casts and became confused, then when I hit play, heard it wasn’t about pageants (thank god) and heard “Reality Buzz With Lynn Hudson” then the first time I heard your voice, it was like a helium balloon. YOU SOUND JUST LIKE MY MOTHER! Your laugh, sweet voice, will admit, hard to believe it’s you on here sometimes, but, we all have that side and now I am able to read this blog while picturing your voice. As we do when we relieve letters or emails from people that we know. Don’t you picture their voice as you read stuff from them?
    So what I’m saying, at times, things aren’t as they seem to appear, and I shouldn’t judge something so fast. Although, I am not a fan of Bethenny’s I noticed also others aren’t on here, and that is your right to be a fan of hers and promote her as much as you want because this is your blog. I do agree with 99.3% of the things you say on here. that’s better than most people’s agree with magazines.
    So, I will sit here and apologize to you for judging you for judging you on the title (not url) of your blog. (Although I am really starting to hate Jill, and not love to hate her like I do the rest).

  104. Let Me Confess says:

    Has any one noticed what Jill is trying to twist this in to now? This is why I am really starting to hate here. Please stop changing the story Jill. Too late now,
    from Jill Bravotv.com blog
    “In the final scene of the episode you see Bobby, Simon, and Mario at the bar. Bobby had been hearing from multiple sources that Simon was heavily engaging in mean tweeting of Kelly and me. Bobby rarely interferes with any any of this as he generally thinks it’s all nonsense. Bobby on his own felt that he needed to have an adult conversation with Simon asking him nicely to stop this behavior. Simon agreed and shook Bobby’s hand. Clearly, Simon was not sincere and is still mean tweeting the both of us.”

  105. boston02127 says:

    Home!!!! Thx to Whitey Bulger it took me over an hour to get home 2 days in a row now. It’s a nut house out there. News people every where & lookie lous.
    Great blog guys. Luv’d that Bobby spoke of this blog! Boo hoo Jill.

    • Furalis says:

      Sorry Boston about the ride home and not sure how old you are going to school and all, but this man destroyed South Boston and did terrible things to young women. He is a monster and should get the death penalty.

      He was and is a terrible man. I always think now that they are older if there thought process is different but people like that don’t change – just their living lives and he ran for years.

      I hope justice will take place!!!!

      • Furalis says:

        sorry their thought process

      • boston02127 says:

        Furalis—I totally agree and hope justice does take place. The thing is many people are acting like he’s a movie star or hero. He’s not. There are people from out of state driving around, looking. It’s ridiculas.

        • Caitlin says:

          Oh, the “Looky Loos” – they can be so infuriating. And the traffic there is the pits anyhow! Been meaning to tell you, Boston, that although I live in the south now, I spent first 12 years of my life in Worcester – many, many, many moons ago. Hope things improve for you soon.

  106. boston02127 says:

    I wonder if Jill & Bobby got in an arguement about Bobby mentioning this blog?

    • MAMAZ says:

      In spite of what her blog says I don’t think Bawby does anything without preapproval from Jill.

      • T-Rex says:

        Mamaz Exactly, if a dude can’t even pick out his own clothing and then have that clothing “branded” by his ShrewJZilla in case he forgets he is married to her(which I am certain he does) so he doesn’t try to stick his privates into some other broad, he is definitely taking all his cues from her. Look he has to pay ProstiJZilla in diamonds for his regular BJ, imagine what would happen if he even dared to go against her in any way.

    • boston who do you think told him to say it

  107. Let Me Confess says:

    Lynn, You are making me nervous. Did you get my post? Are you mad?

  108. Let Me Confess says:

    LOL, Lynn has met Andy Cohen, been invited to Cat O’ Manney book signings, so I don’t get how you say Bravo don’t want this blog to succeed? However, I do agree that Bravo does play favorites. Cough Cough, Carolinebacker Manzo

    • Bravo had nothing to do with Lynn Meeting any of them
      she did that all on her own
      I told her a long time ago how could they publicly ever aknowledge her blog with the name it has
      maybe last night was thier way of saying we love you Lynn w/o mentioning the blogs full name

      it was a very cool moment

    • T-Rex says:

      Where do you get your information?!?? Bravo has nothing to do with Lynn meeting or being invited to signings, Lynn is astute enough to get her own interviews, get this blog mentioned, meet and greet with Housewives when they have events. She asks those on Housewives to participate on her Voicechats, which they do because she asks! If Bravo is behind all this Lynn needs a HUGE compensation package from them! Good grief, she boycotted a whole RH series to make a point that her blogs create a lot of press for Bravo and they don’t even offer publicity publically to them.

    • I just wanted to say HI and greet you to the board 🙂

  109. Sonjafan says:

    I get Jill’s private blog, for entertainment, and wow does she spin crap around. Yes Jill if you are reading here please know I get it to try and decipher your crazy actions and attitudes against what I know is reality. Here you go again spinning a totally different take on Bawby’s discussion with Simon. I read up on Simon and Alex all the time (they are favorites as is Sonja and Ramona-most of the time), and I have yet to see anything that was a lie or anything that comes close to how nasty you have been on the show and in real life. Had to get that off my chest! Love being here and having a place to vent!

  110. lillybee says:

    I wonder if Jill read this blog this morning and then backtracked on her blog.
    I don’t do twitter, so those of you that do, Have you seen the nasty tweets that Jill is talking about?

    • quincyil says:

      When the evidence smacks you in the face…..


    • T-Rex says:

      Trust, if she had those tweets she would have already posted them, not herself, but one her many minions would have, maybe Susan Saunders has them! If we have learned nothing from Jzilla, if she has proof, one of her minions has already sent it out to the media!

  111. Kelly_Has_big_Shoulders says:

    Not sure if anyone has seen this but I thought it was cute. Ramona posted some pics of Avery’s party. I think Avery’s party was way classier than Victoria’s.


    • MAMAZ says:

      I like that instead of gifts she asked that Toys be donated to Toys for Tots.

    • Cin says:

      Avery’s entire look was perfect and well put together. She looked great.

      • boston02127 says:

        I agree about Avery. Victoria looks burnt out.

        • Dawn says:

          Victoria looks like a burn out.

          • i agree except Avery as well as most of her friends lenght of “skirt” was just as short as Victorias

            • T-Rex says:

              Agreed, but Avery’s parents had the good sense to chaperone their youngster and their friends until the party ended. Lumanwannawomanorman decided that SEX was more important than making sure her hoochiedressed, underage daughter, was supervised. I know I can hear the feigned we have “people”, which means random horndogs who may or may not be with the Bravo crew, watching, but who leaves their daughter’s party to have sex! Seriously, she is not at a graduation party, or celebrating her 21st birthday, she is an underage, immature girl who is partying in a BAR!

              • oh i agree with you 100 per cent not just for chaperoning sake but just because its your daughter she should have stayed

                she can do whatever it is those 2 idiots do (LuManaconda & het Lovely Assistant Jacque) anytime
                your daughter only turns 16 once
                that being said there were tons of older relatives there or so it appeared

  112. neroes says:

    Simon’s tweet: Bobby asked me if I was behind a hate blog. I am #!@%*#ured him I wasn’t (And I’m not) & we shook on that. So where are these alleged mean tweets? Also can you imagine how she’d be twisting it if I had called her a “#!@%*#ing #!@%*#” on National TV like she called @McCordAlex? Who’s mean? RT @ZoeThinks: “Clearly, Simon was not sincere and is still mean tweeting the both of us.” Where are @simonvankempen ‘s mean tweets Jill? I see none.

    • SweetValley says:

          I’ve been recuperating from preparing lunch for 30 of hubs co-workers. I was in the kitchen all day yesterday, but got everything prepared and cooked. All they had to do was re-heat.

  116. Jamie Lannister says:
    • where did it say alex won

      • “You didn’t really see it, but LuAnn and Alex greeted each other perfectly pleasantly at Jill’s party. Those are never the moments the cameras focus on, are they? Back at the house, Alex and Simon have a sort of honest discussion about his smoking, which made them both seem vulnerable. Simon was pretty weird about it, but addiction is a weird thing, and Alex dealt with it well. For that moment of genuineness, and for the fact that she moved past last week’s bizarre confrontation with LuAnn, we give Alex the win. (Anyway, the real fun in this episode was with the ancillary winners and losers, wasn’t it?)”

  117. boston02127 says:

    Desperately needing a power nap. BBL. 🙂

  118. Jamie Lannister says:

    Oh, I was looking for this week’s B-side photocap, and I don’t think it’s up yet. BUT I found last week’s, and OMG!

    You have to go read the ones with Alex and Luann. It’s hysterical! Just page down if you want, until you see one of their photos. Applause!


  119. cabbie413 says:

    I know Luann writes a manners-type advice column for some magazine ( iforget which one), but i’m really curious if her column will continue to exist. She serves as such a poor example of a parent and I’m wondering who would really take advice from this woman? At her kids 16 party, she has it at a club, serves up MOCKtails, then leaves the kids alone while she goes off to do her drag queen set with her Sesame Street boyfriend, Gonzo. Really Luann?

    • Adgirl says:

      It’s some gossipy rag so they won’t care that she a hypocrite. As long as she’s bringing on the drama (attention) so they get their monies worth.

  120. Let Me Confess says:

    Q, Of course I’m not fond of the word “Hate” but, it’s her blog and she can title it what she wants. I’d rather see something like “JILL Zarin, you’re an idiot” But, again, it’s Lynn’s blog. I felt bad that judged her by the title. By the way, where is this new podcast of hers? Where can we listen?

  121. T-Rex says:

    Here is something I was pondering, why did they film the RHNY Reunion so early, before the last 5 episodes were even aired to the public? Could it be that they knew once that bombshell of the official “outing” of the IHJZ Blog may lead to more questions being sent to DandyAndy regarding the issue? Could it be that they didn’t want to address the situation of Jzilla lying about this website to Bawby, who then made the wrong accusations towards Simon? DandyAndy knew that the issue of IHJZ was going to be on this weeks show, I am sure he knew there would be some “fallout”, but probably didn’t realize that those here deal in “facts” when it comes to these issues. Did they think there would be some harder questions thrown out to the RHNY women regarding the issue? Singing out to Lynn and Q “You’ve got the power”(song was running through my head while typing this)

    • SweetValley says:

      Good points. Makes you wonder.

    • Adgirl says:

      I read somewhere that they couldn’t agree on a date in July so it was filmed this week.

      • T-Rex says:

        That’s what Simon tweeted as the reason, doesn’t mean it’s the truth! I want to clarify I am sure that what was officially the Excuse they gave to the RHNY group to get them to agree to the early reunion, Bravo can be a bit sneaky! Simon only tweeted what was told to him from Bravo!

      • Okie Folkie says:

        Adgirl, I think that is Bravo BS.
        C’mon, if your (not YOURS!) job depended upon being somewhere at a pre-arranged time, wouldnt you feel obligated to BE THERE? Or else loose yer job?

    • Wait, there are 5 more episodes of this crap?

      DH will not be happy. (He loves RHOA on the DL tho)

    • nathania says:

      I wrote on the other blog I think it might be that there is possibly some truth to the rumor that they are dumping the cast and wanted to get the reunion done before the rumors got louder. I actually read today that MTV is dumping the cast of Jersey Shore, which is odder to me than RHONY because Jersey Shore I believe is a more successful show. (Correct me if I”m wrong). I agree with people being skeptical…no WAY any of these ladies is going to be like, um, sorry, I’m getting a wax that day and can’t make it…I am certain Bravo dictates these dates and the housewives show up with bells on. The only thing I can see interfering is a child’s wedding and needless to say that isn’t an issue here.

  122. Kelly_Has_big_Shoulders says:

    OMG boston02127 and Dawn that is what I thought of Victoria but couldn’t think of the word. Burnt out is correct.

    When I saw Bobby ask Simon about the “hate” blog, it made me realize just how wrong such a blog is. The word “hate” is very strong and Bobby just looked beat having to deal with just one more thing from jill being on a reality show.
    I don’t post often, and will still rarely post, but I don’t want to be responsible for hurting an innocent spouse of a reality show star. It makes me feel skeevy.

    • nathania says:

      the ‘innocent spouse’ ambushed another *truly* innocent spouse on camera on national tv, and made a completely bogus accusation which he had prior knowledge was absolutely false. to me, THAT is skeevy.

      • BambiBaby22 says:

        I didn’t see it as an “ambush” at all. Bobby explained that he heard this rumor that Simon was involved in a hate blog (about his WIFE) and he simply wanted to know if this was true. The truth of the matter is that Simon DID reach out to Lynn and so it *could* be interpreted as Simon being “involved”. Bobby never said Simon writes on the blog or invests in it, but that he has had some sort of involvement in it (which we all know is true). I guess I have compassion for fellow humans.

        • quincyil says:

          Simon is not involved in this blog. Lynn and I create the blogs and watch the boards. This place was Lynn’s idea. I felt horrible for Simon last night because I knew that Jill Zarin had to be that person in the room when Bobby was getting dressed and Jill was lying to her husband and forcing him to be complicent in her many attacks on Simon.


          • BambiBaby22 says:

            Just a few short months after Bobby asking Simon about it, Simon CONTACTED lynn in order to host a meet and greet…..so one can say Simon IS involved in the blog. BTW qunicy, I know lynn created the blog and you write for it, I have been here from nearly the beginning…..but I can have an epiphany that “hate blogs” are hurting innocent people, right?

            • Nancy says:

              If you have been here on this blog for a long time now you would know that this is much more than an “I hate Jill Zarin” blog. Lynn and Quincy write about all the housewives. IF Jill acted like a human person should they would also give her great press and would probably have done a “meet and greet” for her. Lynn and Q are NOT responsible for Jill’s actions, Jill is.

              • Nancy says:

                Part 2,
                Why was it so wrong for Lynn to do a “Meet and Greet” for Simon and Alex?
                Why should Simon and Alex be punished for JIll’s bad behavior? I don’t get it.
                If one doesn’t like people talking and writing “crap” about you change your behavior and see what happens?

                • BambiBaby22 says:

                  Well, there are times when posters will say things like, “I still hate jill zarin”…there is no denying that there is hating going on around here, maybe not everyday is “hate” used, but it is there, nontheless. It is funny that you guys are attacking ME, the person who said it was an epiphany for myself that perhaps this is not the way to behave if it is hurting innocent people. Can’t you be happy for me that I have come to the conclusion that “hating” a person in cyberspace might have unintended consequences?

                  • quincyil says:

                    It’s useless to discuss this, but I will tell you that Bobby Zarin called us “Hate Mongers.” I am sure you understand his feelings about this because he is a Human being.

                  • AZ Girl says:

                    Why is there no accountability for Jill’s behavior and the pain that she has brought on other starting with Bethenny and the list goes on? Jill’s malicious behavior from Amazongate forward has been a backhanded PR slaughterhouse for any and every person who disagrees with her. May I emphasize BACKHANDED. Behind the scenes minions doing her dirty work spreading rumors about Bethenny, Simon, Alex, Ramona and Mario. So we all have been open about accepting a change because her behavior has been so malicious but each and every time we extend our hands to the fire we get burned.

                      OK, I know this is way late in coming and I would not have bothered, but am home sick and truly have nothing better to do: EXACTLY.

                      Kathy Griffin started one of her shows with “I hate Ryan Seacrest and here’s why”, and I still hate Jill Zarin, and likely always will (but I am open).

                      To suggest that this discourse rises to the level of hate mongering and hurting people is ludicrous, and the “reasonable man standard” applies here. The title was born organically – a bold statement of what Bravo CENSORS from its viewers. (Note that as of this morning, its NYC blogs from last week have no more than 24 comments. 24!)

                      Bobby did not get his house egged or his car keyed, But I got to admit, I laughed at the thought that sympathy cards were mailed to his store – harmless if true.

              Provide proof of your Assumptions! Lynn and Q have provided their proof of contact with RH of all groups! You can’t just post and run, if you are going to make statements of proof, then you better provide the proof!

              • BambiBaby22 says:

                trex, I assume you are speaking of me, so now I have to prove my feelings? The “proof” that simon HAS been invoved is in lynn’s own blog that it was HE who contacted Lynn for the meet and greet and at that time there were pictures…..IIRC Alex was wearing shorts and Gucci shoes at the pub (or bar or restaurant) after the book signing.

            • LynnNChicago says:

              No, your timeline is wrong. What you saw on TV last night between Bobby and Simon happened in November 2010, Alex and Simon were here in Chicago in May of 2010 several months before.

            • what your saying doesnt make sense if Simon contacted Lynn months after Bobby made that comment
              how on earth could Bobby even make the comment ???

              • floridagirl88 says:

                The problem with the trolls and shit stirrers is that they constantly get the facts wrong and then try to spin their misunderstanding. How many times have we seen this? Facts and logic are concepts they don’t understand.

        • Adgirl says:

          Hi Bambi, I don’t lump Bobby in with Jill’s behavior. However I think if he decided to talk to Simon about the blog on camera then Bobby should have investigated the nature of this site. Personally I don’t think Bobby looks at websites and twitters. He is told things and shown a few select items (out of context) and takes it as the truth.
          It is hurtful that a blog is named IHJZ. I would be upset if there was one called I Hate Adgirl. But I don’t sign up for tv shows and twitter accounts so I can spew nasty remarks at people then act like I’m a victim. My husband would probably tell me to cut the crap instead of running around “protecting” me (from myself).

          • BambiBaby22 says:

            I think where I just felt bad for Bobby was when he was telling Simon that he (bobby) thought they were passed things like this. It is hurtful when you think someone has and understanding with you and then BAM you find out that person it talking behind your back. I just feel for Bobby…..and he probably only sees Simon in front of cameras.

        • Nancy says:

          I understand what you are trying to say but if this “hate” blog was the ONLY negative source out there re: Jill, I would admit you have a point. But it’s just one in a million other sources. If my husband got wind of the fact that there are sooooo many other examples
          of his wife being so nasty to other human beings he would think that MAYBE there is some truth to this matter. Jill and Bobby have absolutely no insight to their behavior.

          • BambiBaby22 says:

            I am not sure if any of those other blogs use the word “hate” in the title, so I think that is why lynn’s blog stood out to babby since there is no denying this is a “hate” blog, since that is what it is called.

            • Nancy says:

              The title to this blog is tongue and cheek. We don’t really hate Jill Zarin. We just hate how she treats people. Why does she put so much of her energy on this blog and avoid the reason this blog exists? Thats what I would do if I were Jill Zarin.

              • LynnNChicago says:

                What a waste of time Nancy, Bambi knows all of this already. She readily admits to having been reading the blog for many months so arguing is a waste of time, she is just being argumentative. Anyone who has been reading the blog for more than a few weeks KNOWS that this is not a “Hate Blog”, either that or they can’t read.

                Let’s move on.

                • BambiBaby22 says:

                  Lynn, see….I am not being argumentative….I am just sharing my realization that perhaps saying we “hate” someone is not in ANYBODY’S best interest. Call me crazy, but when I meet my maker I don’t want to have to answer why I felt it was ok to hurt innocent people by hurting the ones THEY love. BTW Lynn, you know other people have asked you to reconsider the name of the blog because it is not a nice word to be used toward ANYBODY.

                  • cabbie413 says:

                    Something tells me that God isn’t going to ask you about a blog you visited..i mean really Bambi.. lol shut it down!

                    • BambiBaby22 says:

                      really? you don’t think God would hold you accountable for EVERYTHING you do while on earth? Bobby is a human just like you and me and I am not comfortable hurting him by comments I make ANYWHERE. That is how I choose to live my life now. Don’t get me wrong, i WILL comment, I will just keep it essential to the topic at hand and not personal attacks.

                  • i told her it might be better to change it BUT NOT for the reasons you state
                    i thought if she ever wanted Bravo to take her more seriously a name change might help that as there was no way then could promote it with this name
                    im glad she stood by her guns as she is better off without thier support

              • BambiBaby22 says:

                Nancy, when the blog started, it was less “tongue in cheek” and more hatred……it WAS very frustrating how Jill behaved on season 3 (?) when this blog started……over time the blog covered other bravo shows and that is a good thing but I also recall early on people asking Lynn if she would ever change the name since “hate” is such an ugly word. I also recall posters wanting to send junk mail to Jill just to mess with her……the blog is not just lynn, it is everyone who posts on it. I simply felt bad for bobby last night……that’s all.

              • Nancy i DO hate Shrill i make no pretense about that
                however it has nothing to do with why i come here or how i even found out about the blog
                Lynn and i used to twitter to each other over our mutual LIKE for these shows we were tweeting for a long time and she just assumed i knew about the blog and then one day she asked me why i didnt post or something along those lines and i was like what are you talking about and she sent me the link
                and have been loving it ever since
                i love that we all have things in common but can discuss just about anything here
                i cant make apologies for hating Jill Zarin that belongs to her and her only

            • klmh says:

              I agree with you about the word hate,but its not my blog, and that’s not what happens here, as you know. We have come here because our voices were silenced by Bravo and we were unable to post because of our shock and disappointment with some of these people.
              As you know, we discuss many different things, including personal problems, ideas and solutions that pertain to the posters here.
              Sorry if you are offended by the blog or posts but once you are here, you will see what its about. Kind of like the Real Housewives of New York. Sonya, Kelly, Cindy and Luann or not housewives. See, the title isn’t everything.

              • BambiBaby22 says:

                Yes, I totally understand that. It is NOT just JZ that is discussed here. My point is that Bobby seemed so hurt and broken down to me last night and he said “hate” blog and I can only assume he called it that because of the name of this blog and that it hurt him because he thought the zarin relationship with the mccord/vankempens was in a better place than what it was. Bobby must’ve been shocked to find out that simon and alex was reaching out to the blogger of what he called a “hate” blog. I think some of you here will understand that.

                • klmh says:

                  He along with Jill decided to put their lives out there. They have a chance to get out. They are financially benefitting from this show and he along with Jill have decided to stay.
                  I don’t have a hatred for Jill, but that this was a setup by Bobby, and I think you should know that too. Bobby was playing to the camera. If it was such a surprise, he would have discussed it with him at another time. Maybe you should feel sorry for Simon because he was the one that was set up.

                • Nancy says:

                  Did you not hear what Jill called Alex at the wedding?
                  And how much she is out of her league in society by even being there?
                  Why aren’t you feeling sorry for them? Why do Bobby’s feeling get more substance
                  than Alex and Simons?

                  • BambiBaby22 says:

                    You are thinking just because I had a epiphany about others being hurt that it must mean that I like JZ. What she said is appalling, but it is between two characters on a show….it is not “real life” or “cyberlife”. I felt bad for bobby and it made me realize that it could have been a comment I made that hurt someone innocent…..I am not responsible for Jill’s actions, but I can take what I felt last night watching Bobby and Simon’s interaction and make it a learning and growth experience for myself. It makes me sad that some on here can’t see that and appreciate my concern and thought for what it is……simply a change of heart that what i post on a blog has consequences.

                    • when a person is talking that cheaply and badly about someone else it isnt about 2 characters on a show it was Shrill talking badly about a co worker behind her back
                      she is a disgusting pig
                      and her hubby is an enabler

                • Kerry Okie says:

                  Jill is using Bobby again, just like she did last year against Bethenney. “It’s never about what it’s about,” as Quincy reminded us earlier today. Jill knows Bobby is generally well-liked and thought of as the voice of reason; she’s knows people think he’s a saint for being able to put up with her; she’s counting on it. Bobby is just one more weapon in the war. Jill thinks we’re stupid and that she can manipulate us into believing whatever she wants. She will use anyone to achieve her ends, and she, therefore, elicits ill will.

                  • Lurker Also says:

                    OK–Lynn, I and everyone on here hate everybody.



        • Okay, and I am sure it was just as painful and hurtful to Simon to see his wife referred to as a ‘F**CKING B*TCH, who associates with people who are above her”, yet “innocent” Bobby not only sleeps with the woman who said it, but buys her jewelry?

        • nathania says:

          bambi, you forget this is a reality show, it is filmed and people watch it on their tv’s. bawby came up to simon ON CAMERA, rather than just calling him up on the phone. he wanted lynn’s blog to be misrepresented for something it wasn’t and he wanted simon’s name associated with it. in other words he wanted someone on the show blamed for the existence of a blog because apparently the zarins are delusional as all hell that they believe there is no one else that has problems with her. oh noooooooooooooo….the public LOVES jill zarin, so someone on the show must have been pulling the same dirty tricks SHE pulls.

          In response to your claim of compassion, Bawby STARTED the confrontation, he purposely did it on camera, and he made an accusation he had prior knowledge was false. Compassion is fine, just make sure it’s for the true victim.

  126. nathania says:

    now thanks to Bawby Zarin that you have officially hit the big time, Lynn, it’s time to figure out how to get this blog in a position to generate ad revenue.

  127. Another Lynn says:

    I would love to see “Alice” back. I had been off the blog for a couple months and when I came back I was missing her comments. I always enjoyed the interaction between the old regulars. Thank you Lynn and Quincy for what you do. Otherwise, I could not watch this RNYHW. I still can’t stand Jill Zarin. I hate the way Andy Cohen favors JZ. I don’t get it. She is not a nice person. I hate myself for watching sometimes. (not really). It is good to have a place to go where people discuss and see the reality of “reality tv”. 🙂

  128. Jamie Lannister says:
  129. mariareads says:

    I’m trying to understand the timing of all of this. Last night’s episode was filmed in the Fall? Correct? Simon and Alex went to Chicago between then and now so Bobby asked Simon about the blog as per when? I am getting confused re the timing. Did Alex and Simon go to Chicago in the Fall? Must have been. OY, I’m so mixed up.

    The point is why is Bobby asking at that time? Can someone help me out here?

    All this kanflama over a woman who has a mouth like a truck driver and no conscience! And Bravo Andy, if you are reading-if your damned message boards would let us voice our opinions whether negative or positive there wouldn’t BE so many blogs about the nasty women who are on your shows. NY isn’t the only one and Jill Zarin isn’t THE housewife. My God, those women in Beverly Hills could buy and sell the Zarin’s over and over.

    • quincyil says:

      Lynn met with Simon and Alex after a book signing in Chicago the third season reunion was filmed, but not shown. That made Jill really mad. She fumed all summer and then called Alex a f****** b**** at a wedding. Then they made up and at this point Alex was combing Jill’s Shirley Temple curls out. I have a feeling that Alex was ok with Jill for a long time. I don’t know if she is now.


    • LynnNChicago says:

      Alex and Simon were in Chicago in May of 2010 and what we saw on TV last night was filmed in November 2010

      • mariareads says:

        Ok, thanks. That’s cleared up. So the contact they had with you was well before the filming of this season. I was trying to understand the course of events but just couldn’t recall and to be honest I was a bit lazy to go back looking.

  130. Nancy says:

    Hi everyone.
    Remember Whale Wars is on tonight. The Whales need our help.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      YES! I enjoy that show and I hope that you enjoy it from the safety of your couch Nancy! 🙂 xo

      • AZ Girl says:

        I may watch it so I can keep cool….hehehe

      • Nancy says:

        Lynn, Lynn, Lynn,
        What am I going to do with you? Why shouldn’t I go? Someone has to help the injustice thats going on. I have been following Green Peace and the Sea Shepard for many years now. Paul Watson is from Canada as am I and the reason we don’t live now is because of the Seal Slaughtering that goes on every year. We both boycotted the Olympics as well. The reason my husband and I didn’t have children is so we can do these kind of things. I’m not in anyway saying I’m better than I just have different needs in life.
        Any change I can sign you up? 🙂

        P.S. I had so much fun last night. Thank-you so much for all your hard work.

  131. Cusi77 says:

    I found this comment on Alex’s Blog:

    Submitted by Stacey Carver on June 23, 2011..

    “Alex, you are a breath of fresh air. I also visit the website mentioned, it has a lot of info on a lot of shows and is a fun read. I believe if that site had Ramona’s name on it Jill would be logging on everyday…and contributing! I hope Simon has been able to stop smoking, I myself decided today that I am going to so I look forward to seeing if he had success! Hope you are enjoying summer with the chums!”

  132. kaye says:

    Lynn, congratulations on getting mentioned on the show! I guess that’s why you blogged so fast! Now Bravo will have to give you the respect you deserve. Btw, please lay off of Theresa. I’m not a true fan of any of these housewives, however it is clear to me that Theresa upset you because of her mean blogs to Bethenny. I like most people lie Bethenney however I don’t agree with everything that she says or does. Also I don’t beat down people who disagree with me. Your blog sounds alot like a Jill Zarin campaingn to make people hate Theresa. She is horrible with money, but for 3 seasons she has shown to be a great mom and a family oriented person. Please don’t make me hate you lynn. You are dead right about the OC ladies and about the NY ladies. But you are blinded when it comes to NJ. I myself ca write a full page on the BS that Theresa has said or done. But all you are doing is low blowing and lying.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      What exactly did I lie about? I don’t care for Teresa and because you don’t agree you’re going to hate me? Sorry but that’s a bit absurd.

      I think Teresa thinks it is perfectly ok to screw over contractors who rebuilt her home then sleep comfortably in it every night, she lied on her bankruptcy documents about her assets, admitted to using frozen pizza dough after writing an Italian cookbook, I could go on and on about Teresa’s lies but you get the idea. I won’t even go into all the stuff her husband has done, he’s a criminal.

      You don’t have to agree with me about Teresa, feel free to tell why I’m wrong. I don’t see her as a family oriented person with the way that she’s treated her brother and sister-in-law not to mention their children, Teresa’s nieces and nephews. You may see Teresa as a good mom but I see the way her children behave and that they don’t listen to her, I am not impressed.

      Last season we saw Teresa taking Gia to interviews and trying out for acting gigs, Teresa said she is now too busy with her book signings and personal appearances to do it anymore. We’ve seen Teresa attend Gia’s gymnastic’s meet, that in and of itself does not make her a good mother in my book. Maybe we’ll see more….

      I don’t want people to blindly think the way I do, my blog is my opinion and you’re entitled to yours, post away!

      • LOLing says:

        For me, it’s not so much you don’t like her, that’s ok! You don’t have to! It’s just that I wonder if you are seeing what I am seeing? Putting all her and Joe’s troubles aside & the other stuff for a second, and looking at just the family issues, do you really believe that it’s JUST Teresa? Do you really believe that Melissa and Joe have no role in the troubles? With maybe a little parental favoritism thrown in? I know you like Melissa and her sisters, but I wonder if you are letting that cloud you a bit? Nothing in life happens in a vaccuum, family issues are very often 2, 3 and 4 sided. I just think you are looking too close the surface of what you don’t like about Teresa and what you like about Melissa but as opposed to thinking about it in a deeper way. This is 1% of their llives , there is history and stuff that is there that we aren’t and probably won’t be privvy to that keeps this thing going. Yes, teresa Guidice is a pain in the ass and doesn’t pay her bills, but that doesn’t mean she is solely responsible for the problems in the family. All 3 are culpable, IMHO.

        • LynnNChicago says:

          LOL but this has been in the press for many months prior to Melissa and Joey being cast on the show. We’ve heard family grumblings between these two families and it always is based on Teresa ignoring her real family while filming and adopting the Manzo’s and Laurita’s as her family.

          I know if I saw my sister on screen saying over and over again that some other people are like “family” to her and all but ignoring her real family, I’d be hurt too. Joey Gorga is hurt.

          I don’t really have an opinion of Melissa’s sisters, we haven’t seen enough of them to really know. Obviously they stick up for their sister Melissa, I would expect nothing less, unless they were Teresa Giudice.

          • LOLing says:

            Was it ignoring or not putting them on fim? Not Teresa’s doing, that’s Bravo. They totally cut him out at the housewarming party.

            My immediate family is very small. Teresa mentioned hers was as well. My husband’s immediate family is also small. We both have friends (and their families) that we consider family. I tell my mom this all of the time. I have even spent holidays w/ friends growing up if my parents were travelling (when I was older, of course). My best friends parents consider me another daughter. This does not bother my mom in the least!

            My extended family on my moms side is larger, but I have an Aunt I won’t speak to because she is an ass and has said things to and about me that were uncalled for. When I see her at functions I say hello and walk away. I don’t start a fight. My dad had a large extended family (but small immediate fam) and they dropped me and my mom like hot potatos when he died. We never did anything to them, that we know of. But yet, we are “family” and don’t speak. Frankly, we don’t even care!

            Bottom line, when family doesn’t speak, it’s not one person or one thing. You can’t just blame Teresa. I guess we will agree to disagree! 🙂

    • Kukulet says:

      She is horrible with money, but for 3 seasons she has shown to be a great mom and a family oriented person.

      I bet the countless vendors that she and Joe stiffed out of hundreds of thousands of dollars-regular people trying to get by in this economy-are just thrilled that Theresa is a family oriented person. I’m sure that’s what they told their own families after they were shafted. “Don’t cry, honey. So we won’t pay the power bill this month. It’s okay because Mrs. Guidice is a family oriented person, after all.”

      There’s a difference between being a bad money manager and screwing other people intentionally to the tune of…what was it? 12 million dollars?

      • Adgirl says:

        Amen, sister. The people who got screwed directly (contractors) are also good family people who probably excited to be included in a big job. They spent days, weeks ro months working for FREE. A donation to the lifestyles of the Guidices.
        We, the public are screwed indirectly with higher credit card and loan fees to cover the bank’s expenses of not being able to collect on the lines of credit extended to the Guidice family.

    • Kats2 says:

      Teresa is a criminal with major anger management problems. I have no idea what you have been watching or what you’re talking about.

      • SweetValley says:

        Hey now, I’m a regular reader of this blog and love the freedom it gives us to share opinions but I agree with LOLing. I wish Lynn would look at NJ objectively and call Melissa out on her ish as well. But that’s her opinion. It’s one of few things I disagree with her on.

  133. AZ Girl says:

    This is a re-post in response to Bambi. I know why bother trying to reason with someone who focuses on one word “Hate” and not the contents of what is being written.

    Post uptread AZ Girt to Bambi:
    Why is there no accountability for Jill’s behavior and the pain that she has brought on other starting with Bethenny and the list goes on? Jill’s malicious behavior from Amazongate forward has been a backhanded PR slaughterhouse for any and every person who disagrees with her. May I emphasize BACKHANDED. Behind the scenes minions doing her dirty work spreading rumors about Bethenny, Simon, Alex, Ramona and Mario. So we all have been open about accepting a change from Jill because her behavior has been so malicious but each and every time we extend our hands to the fire we get burned. Bambi you need to the forest for the trees.

    • AZ Girl says:

      “see the forest for the trees”

    • AZ Girl says:

      And may I add that watching Jill at that wedding episode call Alex a F###K B##tch on film was just beyond reproach. I have never know ANYONE wealthy or without means to be so hateful. Yes… I said the word “HATE”. That is what is on film. We here are not making anything up. Jill needs to own up to her behavior. Period.

      • BambiBaby22 says:

        Again, my original post was stating how i felt bad for bobby when he asked simon if he was involved in a “hate” blog. Since the word “hate” is in the title, I would guess that is why bobby used that phrase. It certainly isn’t a JZ love blog. I also just feel that I don’t want to say things that will cause even more pain to an innocent family member like bobby, especially now since I know for a fact that bobby is aware of this blog. This is just my opinion and my feelings, I don’t know how THAT can be “wrong”.

        • Kukulet says:

          An “innocent” person like Bobby?

          Look, his wife has been on the Housewives for 4 years. Every year, he’s encouraged her to continue, to put herself out there on the chopping block, knowing that it exposes her to criticism. He’s stood by and enabled her while she implemented her own hate campaigns, such as AmazonGate. He’s not innocent, and he isn’t stupid.

        • VAgirl says:

          BambiBaby22 I do not feel sorry for Bobby. Either he’s allowing himself to be manipulated by Jill or is a co-manipulator with Jill. Either way, he’s not totally innocent in all this. If you suddenly feel the way you do, perhaps you should go with your feelings and not follow us “Haters” any longer. As for me, I will continue to share my opinions and feelings with people I consider kind, caring and honest, whether I agree with them or not. They keep me on my toes and I need all the mental exercise I can get!

        • Nancy says:

          I sure hope no one in your life needs an intervention because someone feelings are going to be hurt. Your point makes no sense IMHO.
          Bobby isn’t doing Jill any favors by shifting blame to Simon, us et al

          • BambiBaby22 says:

            It’s called “personal responsibility” and I don’t want to be the cause for anyone’s hurt feelings, and I can make sure not to PERSONALLY attack someone who is a real person. Obviously others on here feel differently and that is fine, but I just had a realization that comments made by me *could* hurt others’ feelings and I am not comfortable with that……I have never called JZ names or anything, and I will still discuss the show and her (and others’) behavior…….THAT is fair game since it is a show and all.

        • LynnNChicago says:

          You can’t really believe that Bobby Zarin just learned about this blog in November of 2010? Why doesn’t Mario walk up to Bobby and ask him to stop his wife Jill from constantly contacting Popeater, Page 6, and all the others to slam Ramona? Cyber Bullying is exactly what Jill’s doing by feeding them false stories.

          Who the hell is Bobby Zarin to tell anyone to stop cyber bullying? His wife is the biggest cyber bully of them all! A poll on Jill’s Facebook asking if Ramona is a hypocrite for starters.

          Simon does NOT bully people anyway, he gives his opinions and sometimes facts, he defends himself and his wife from Jill and Kelly’s BS! Simon isn’t known to start this stuff either, he is typically responding to something someone else has said.

        Maybe we should change the name of this blog to JZ is an “Efin Bee”. Would that be ok since she said it about ALex first?

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      There is a big difference between a title and the content! Judge a book by it’s cover and you may miss out on a fabulous, life altering, read …. Hate is a strong word but it is not used here in the classic definition.

      • BambiBaby22 says:

        Perception is reality and it was bobby’s perception that this is a hate blog and so it is his reality….let’s face it, there ARE some very hateful things said on here from time to time about his wife and any husband would be hurt/angry about such a thing. I am not familiar with what percentage of “hateful” comment constitues a “hate” blog.

        • Cusi77 says:

          Bambi_ We have free will to make decisions in life, Bobby and Jill chose to be in a Reality TV Show where regular people will watch and have opinions if they do not want to know real opinions about Jill’s nasty and vile behavior:
          A) Do not read anything, ignore.
          B) Stop being in the show

          • BambiBaby22 says:

            It is not that…..it was the fact that bobby thought he and simon were making headway in their mutual respect for each other and then bobby finds out that simon was involved in some way with this blog.

        • Kats2 says:

          There is a an easy fix to the problem and Jill’s family owes her the truth. Jill created her own problems and to this day has done nothing to fix it.

          While I try to never use the Hate word, I’m also a somewhat intelligent adult who understands tongue and cheek humor and why the blog was given the name. But there is another “H” word that actually describes the contents of the blog – HONEST.

          • Error404 says:

            Remember when gawker used to have a section of their weekly recaps titled ” why Jill zarin is a despicable human being”? Where was bawby and his hurt feelings then? The zarins will stop at nothing to make a story line. This whole “Hate blog” storyline could easily be retitled ” desperate effort for more camera time #465″

            • BambiBaby22 says:

              I don’t read Gawker so I don’t know that blog title there. I am sure Bobby was hurt by that as well, the main difference is that I never posted there. I am just taking personal responsibility to not personally attack anyone online…..I don’t want to think that I might have hurt a complete stranger by my words. Others may not feel that way, but I think I have reached a respectable decision. I will still discuss situations, I will just not personally attack someone online.

        • cabbie413 says:

          BAmbi let’s be real clear here.. in all fairness there are a lot of “hate blogs” about Jill Zarin -Lynn’s is just one of them-

          I just like that Bobby called it the hate blog because when people google “hate Jill Zarin blog” Lynn’s blog will pop up and they will be giving Lynn’s blog even MORE hits. lol

          Bobby looks like a gay mafia boss, and i’m glad Simon didn’t go haul off and slug that senior citizen! Really..that’s why you should feel sorry for him.

        • Kerry Okie says:

          Jill is using Bobby to elicit sympathy. She’s done it before. I feel sorry for him too, but that doesn’t change how I view Jill, and I’m not compelled to shut up because Bobby’s feelings are hurt. To each his or her own.

    • Error404 says:

      Bambi felt bad for bawby. Why, I have no idea. Bawby is a butinsky control freak who feels it’s his “job” to go around telling other people what they can and can not say to and about his wife. He tries to cloak it as concern, but it’s really control. He’s way more controlling than either Peter or Simon Barney could ever hope to be.

      • Kats2 says:

        YES! And why doesn’t Bobby sit down and help Jill? If would kill me if I was behaving badly and no one nearest and dearest to me didn’t point it out. You can still have someone’s back, protect them but also by honest with them.

        • BambiBaby22 says:

          Did you hear bobby telling simon that he thought the two couples were beyond things like “hate” blogs (I am summarizing)? That is why I felt bad for bobby and the thought that it could have been a comment of mine that might have made him feel bad.

          • Kats2 says:

            I understand if you are feeling bad about something you said. But what Error said is what triggered my response because Bobby, her Mom and sister should be helping Jill and pointing out when she’s wrong. If they did there would be some real changes and improvement and there is just no sign that she changed at all.

            • BambiBaby22 says:

              perhaps they are…we don’t know for sure and believe me when she says like “are you kidding me?” to the question if the diamonds in her watch are real does her no favors. I do not LIKE jill, I just don’t want to make life harder on bobby or allison by badmouthing Jill.
              I don’t ever recall ever saying anything super nasty about jill, it is just that seeing bobby and simon on camera discussing this blog made it seem so “real”…before that, these people were just characters in my idiot box once a week.

              • BessiB says:

                ROFLOL. Yes, the difficulty of Bobby’s life just went exponential because people comment on Jill’s behavior

          • Jamie Lannister says:

            Yes, I did at the @TVLand awards. He didn’t know she’d said that until he saw the episode & agreed that she was out of line. RT @plainviewsue: @SimonvanKempen U & @mccordalex need to stop being so nice. Did u ever pull over Bawby & complain about how his witchy wife speaks 2 Alex?

            Jill is the biggest “cyber bully” of them all. Bobby is not a helpless babe, but he is apparently too lazy to dump this viper and find a decent wife.

            The above is a tweet from Simon.

            I understand not liking the word “hate” but Bobby’s feelings are NOT hurt because of bloggers, but because of the despicable real life things his wife does. I think, on some level, he knows it. He’s a big boy (old man) and he chose her, now he must dump her or live the the consequences of JILL’S actions.

            As far as the title of the blog, I was one who voted to change it will Lynn did an informal poll WAY back in the early days. It was discussed. Most, including Lynn, decided they liked the title. I honestly don’t remember why, but we all chimed in with our opinions.

    We have not had a post from OMIB in a while. Hope all is well.

  135. WindyCityWondering says:

    This is not the only blog I read that concerns RHs of Bravoland but it is one I feel comfortable posting on. Over time, I have come to admire Lynn, Quincy and those who post here. There are many blogs out there who have posters who are vicious – where you can feel their hatred towards the topic and towards each other. Jill does not have to single out this blog when it comes to hater blogs and her battle cry of death to cyberbullies rings very hollow to me! She is very stupid to take on Simon who is logical, witty and articulate because she will lose.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      Thanks Windy! xoxo Jill uses other blogs in her own way to do the same thing to Alex, Bethenny and Ramona on a regular basis by feeding them BS stories about her cast mates.

  136. I just waded through the comments. Wow what a busy day.

    Here’s my thought of the day. Don’t fret the folks that are coming to call this a “hate” blog. My guess is many used to be here – got their feelings hurt – and now come back to snark once in a while. I’m sure if Lynn took the time she could line up their IP addresses for matches.

    Let’s just enjoy the moment. Lynn has created something here – enough to be part of the reality show she blogs – enough to be known by most of the “reality” stars – enough to get under JZ’s skin. It’s great. Payback for all the mean things she’s done to her co-stars, and they can just sit back and chuckle.

  137. Kats2 says:

    Lynn I’m so happy for you! I knew it was just a matter of time this would happen. You have created an amazing site for all to enjoy. Many of us have been visiting with you for a long time and we keep coming back for you, Quincy and all the people who post comments and just want to talk HW’s or anything else on our minds. Everyone has the HW’s they like or dislike and for the most part we all can agree to disagree, vent about it but mostly laugh. There really is no place like this.

    Dear God


    Everything About Michaele Salahi’s Musical Debut Is Depressing

    As horrible as this is, she looks better and sounds better than Luann did last night

    RHONYC just continues to get more boring. I was hoping Morocco was the end of this season. Sweet 16 parties? Really? I couldn’t keep my eyes open. How many more episodes must we struggle through before this season is finally put out of its misery?

  141. LOLing says:

    Needless to say, my mouth dropped open whenthe blog was mentioned on the show! I couldn’t believe it. For the record, I am no Jill fan, but I think this was a stroke of evil genius. Bear with me…

    Back in college I had sociology and psych and in class we did lots of “Group Think” type lessons. For anyone who hasn’t heard of it, group think, in shorthand, is when you take on the beliefs of a particular group. Rockket science, right? 🙂 We see this all of the time in politics. Often times, people within a group are loathe to agreee w/ those that disagree or even accept any other opinions. A cult is an example of group think in action. In a weird way, Housewife blogs can be related to this.

    Look at it this way, roughly 3 million people watch RHONY every week. And those are just the ones they measure through Neilson, that doesn’t include people who DVR, watch it in repeats or online. So the number may be higher. The ratio of viewers to blog readers and blog commenters, is a small sampling of people who actually watch the show. Maybe avid blog followers is 50,000? Subtract that by the number of HW’s blogs and it gets smaller. In any case, the sampling of people who read this blog (obviously, are not nerds like me who sit and think of this stuff) don’t take the numbers into account when reading and interacting here. This is b/c the nature of group think is insular.

    Human nature guides us to associate with and spend time in and with people and places that make us happy. This is why HW’s is what it is, these “woman” are thrown together and have to navigate social dynamics in uncomfortable situations. Same w/ the blogs, in a way. When you spend time in a group, you make that your central focus and in time you begin to believe that “everyone” feels like you do. Not because you’re not smart enough to know better, but b/c that’s how group think works. Your group becomes your “everybody” and you just focus on that. Not the bigger picture.

    So, much as this blog’s surface schtick is IHJZ (even though the content is not) people who have NEVER read a blog, surely went to Google to get to the bottom of this “hate blog”! Kind of like RHONJ S1 when they showed “the book” in the promos and I ran to the computer to find out what the hell it was about! Like I was REALLY going to wait a week! LOL. Of all the newbies, who’s to say a lot of these people are not Jill fans? She does have them. Remember, this is a small sampling. Who’s to say they even if they may not love Jill, they are offended by the title and tone of the blog? (For the record nothing about this blog offends me, just making a point!) A lot of people don’t get involved w/ blogs and social networking b/c their is a lot of nastiness out there. (Twitter, I’m looking at you!) People tend to feel sympathy for people when they perceive them as being “attacked” (see: Guideice, Teresa RHNJ S3). Obviously, there is no way for me to prove or disprove what people are thinking, without them commenting, but I think I am generally correct in my thoughts. Those thoughts being that the ratio of Jill fans to Jill haters is probably even, with non opinions throen in. She is the Barack Obama of RHONYC. *ducks for cover for bringing up politics*.

    Jill must know this, and “exposing” the blog will yes, give Lynn more traffic, yes, get Lynn more posts then usual, but is it going to seal Jill’s fate? No. Is it going to garner her sympathy? Quite possibly. Regardless, she’s getting a ton of attention. Even more evil genius? She made Alex and Simon “responsible” for the blog by proxy. They aren’t, but equating them to hate blog supporters is like calling someone a Klan Member in HW’s world. People who don’t read this stuff or take the time to research it, will just hear “hate” and shape their opinion. Even if they are wrong.

    So, at the end of the day, Jill gets sympathy press due to the evil, horrible hate blog. LOL. AND she makes Alex and Simon, the hate supporting scapegoats. Evil. Brilliant. We’ll see where it goes….

    if you think that the housewives are so malicious why would you want to jump on that bandwagon? it seems to me that you, like them go out of your way to be mean and nasty. as low class as the housewives themselves are. why go out of your way to make someone feel bad? i don’t get it. aren’t the housewives eveil enough?

  143. Jessica says:

    You’re an old fat pathetic hag with the education of a 6th grader and the taste of a drag queen. Jill is right about Alex. She’s a joke. So are you.

    • Enough Homophobia/Transphobia says:

      Are you homophobic as well as transphobic? I feel quite sorry for you – while the rest of the US is celebrating gays having the same civil rights as other people, you are probably filled with hatred that anyone different dare have the same rights. Do you think we should enslave transgendered/cross-dressing people? Do you think they should be taken to camps or exterminated because you find them personally distasteful?

      You must have been very badly raised to hate a group of people like that. Or, you are an embarrassment to your family – try to get yourself an education and a life.

  144. snarkarella says:

    Shill said in her blog that she gave Avery and Victoria the same gift from Kwiat Jewelry. A cute black rope bracelet with a silver tear drop. I checked the website and found it. They are $100. Wow. Don’t get me wrong. It was nice they got them a gift and teenaged girls probably like them. But $100? I’m sure the stupid little outfits she puts Ginger in cost more than that. She’d probably be pissed off at Ramoner if she gave Ally a Bat Mitzvah gift that only cost that much.

  145. Karen says:

    Lynn, I actually dislike Jill. She was petty to Bethanny. But this blog IS cyberharrassment. I just wonder if you place all the energy that you do on hating Jill on something more positive maybe your life would be better.

    I understand why she wants to take it down. Please reconsider it. The world is such a bad place and putting negative things outside seems so …negative. I believe all humankind is redeemable. Even Jill.


  146. fancy48@aol.com says:

    Lynn got a question…if Jill Zarin was to leave the show who would you hate then, what would you do with all of your time???? You need to take this computer time and see a professional, you need help. Do you have this kind of anger for people you actually know (family, children, friends)????
