I Hate Jill Zarin  The Real Housewives of New Jersey / Mob Wives

Real Housewives of New Jersey by LynnNChicago

This may be the most annoying blog you read all week about the Real Housewives of New Jersey because I have a lot of “I told you so’s” to say.  I kid I kid!  No really…

Melissa and Teresa had their sit down, it was a bit frustrating sort of like watching Jill and Ramona not listen to each other.  Melissa heard what Teresa said and Teresa heard what Melissa said but they didn’t really hear each other.  They’re both skeptical about this relationship working and they’re both not ready to trust the other.  Sorry to mention New York again but this is what I had been saying for months about Jill and Bethenny.  Everyone kept saying they wanted them to repair their friendship and be buddies again but there was no way that Bethenny could ever trust Jill again after what she had done.  That friendship is dead, always will be.  (told ya so)

With Melissa and Teresa it is a bit different, they’re family so they have no choice but to see each other, interact and they have to find a way to make it work.  Based on their most recent blogs, they haven’t made anything work.  I hope they’re allowing the kids to play together regardless of the adult feuds.

One of the things that came out was that while Teresa constantly tells viewers that she has “No Help” with her house or her children, apparently she does have help, she just doesn’t pay her help.  Her help is her mother and Joe’s mother who, according to Melissa, are there every day helping Teresa.  (told ya so!)  There isn’t anything wrong with a mother helping her daughter but Teresa should give her credit and stop lying about not having any help.

I thought Teresa threw a low blow out there by stating on-screen that some plumber approached her husband to complain that her brother hasn’t paid him.  This isn’t something to talk about on television but more than that Teresa should be siding with her brother and not some contractor.  Teresa clearly hasn’t asked her brother about the situation and Melissa is right, contractors are forever dealing with sub-contractors who claim they’ve not been paid.  There are lots of legitimate reasons to hold back payment to a contractor.  Maybe the work isn’t done, or wasn’t done correctly, had Teresa thought of that?  Who is Teresa to talk about not paying contractors?  She’s got a list of them in her bankruptcy who haven’t been paid for building their home.  Allegedly.

I will give Teresa credit for trying to bury the past, I’m not sure if that is always the best thing to do, sometimes hashing it out is best because things can fester, but Teresa seemed like she sincerely wanted to try to make things better and so did Melissa, bringing the photos of the family when they were all happy together was a great idea.  Teresa is the one who stood and went to hug her sister-in-law so she gets a tiny thumbs up for that.  Melissa is unsure because she thinks that it could be all for the cameras.

Twice on tonight’s episode Teresa was confronted with the name, Kathy, her cousin.  Teresa flat-out refused to even discuss the possibility of trying to repair her relationship with Kathy and that was pretty disappointing.  We haven’t heard anything that Kathy has done to Teresa up to this point, the only thing Teresa mentioned was Kathy’s husband Rich making snide comments about Teresa’s financial situation, hell we all do that!  Jacqueline and Caroline have done that!  Teresa told viewers that she thought Kathy should tell her husband to stop making jokes about Teresa and Joe’s finances.  Does Teresa tell her husband to shut it when he says something stupid?  No she doesn’t!  When Joe Giudice flipped out in the bus in Italy she specifically said that she removes herself from the situation and doesn’t say anything to Joe.

How can Melissa and Joey maintain their relationship with cousins Kathy and her husband Richie while Teresa refuses to try to mend fences with Kathy?  Awkward!

I think Teresa is really upset that Kathy is a housewife, she wasn’t happy about Melissa being a housewife but I think she’s happy for her brother because they clearly wanted to be on the show but Teresa doesn’t want to share the spotlight with her cousin too.  (told ya so!)

Moving on…

The Giudice’s, Laurita’s and Manzo’s flock to the Catskills.  Teresa and Joe have a home there, one more time….not mentioned anywhere on the bankruptcy documents as an asset but I may have heard Joe saying it was his dad’s place so I’ll hold my “told ya so” for another time on this one.

They eat, they drink (heavily) and they shoot guns.  Jacqueline was hysterical during this episode, I think she doesn’t get showcased as much as the other housewives because she’s not a raving bitch, or a show off or pushing advice on people.  She’s just her, she’s happy and healthy and enjoying her life, she’s funny too!  As her husband packs his shotguns to take on their trip Jacqueline says, “I’m getting my period, do you really want me around guns?”  then later, “This look on my face is the look of concern, maybe you can’t tell because of all the botox”.   (Paraphrasing)

Later as Jacqueline arrives at the Giudice Catskills home she takes one look at the stuffed dead animals on the walls and says, “Oh My God, Where am I?  Look into the sad eyes of those cute animals and how can you shoot them?  Cold hearted bastards”  Again paraphrasing but funny stuff!

Still later as Jac goes Quad riding with her husband she is pissed because he drove too fast so she gets off and walks back to the house saying, ” I’m going to get your credit card and spend all your money”  or something like that.  She was seriously angry but funny too!

Caroline was a stick in the mud, she didn’t want her son’s (both over 21) to shoot guns or ride the Quads, they did both.  She freaked out about the roasted pig on a spit and was pretty rude about it.  Caroline was also extremely rude in the Giudice family chapel on the property.  Apparently she thinks that if you shoot guns and say a prayer in church you’re a hypocrite, she found it so funny that she made a complete ass out of herself in the chapel by laughing out of control.  She should have stepped out when the pig was brought in and she should definitely have stepped out of that chapel.  Why did she even go in?  Clearly she had no respect for it.  She should have stood in there respectfully quiet or not go in to begin with.  This woman gives out advice?

Many people were tweeting and commenting here about Teresa’s clothing, Andy even did a Teresa fashion recap on Watch What Happens Live making fun of her wardrobe on this episode.  You all know I’m no Teresa fan but I liked the fur boots and who cares what pajamas look like?   (of course she did know she would be on TV)   I wasn’t a fan of her fugly green headband/wool hat but everything else was ok to me.  Maybe I’m the only one?

Outside of her wardrobe I thought her behavior along with her husband’s was absolutely “too much information” or TMI as many said!  She actually held up a sex toy in her interview and not only talked about it but demonstrated it, nobody wants to see that, seriously nobody!  Doesn’t Bravo know their audience?  I don’t think any of us care who is better at giving BJ’s Teresa or Jacqueline.  Besides, how the hell do they know?  Chris may have a different scorecard than Joe Giudice.  We’re not prudes and we’re not even offended by the foul language, that usually goes by without mention but we don’t want to see Teresa and Joe Giudice in bed knowing he has a ring on his manhood that vibrates.  Really, we don’t.

Andy said it best, “I never knew where Joe and Teresa first “did it” and now I can never unknow it”.  There are a lot of things on tonight’s episode that I’d like to unsee or unknow.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but Joe Giudice calling his wife a “dirty whore” and slapping her on the ass is not turning her on, certainly not as much as she pretends that it does.  Talk about acting for the cameras!  I can only imagine what she says to him in return when the cameras are off.  Joe just needs to prove he is a disgusting pig in every episode, doesn’t he?

We didn’t want to see Tamra having sex in a bathtub, we didn’t want to see Teresa straddling Joe last season on their anniversary, hell I didn’t want to see Alex’s sexy fashion show for Simon or Ramona massaging Mario, what makes the producers think we need to see all this crap?  It’s like seeing Jill giving Bobby Zarin a BJ for those diamonds she got for her birthday……I need to bleach my brain just thinking about it.  It made me want to vomit just hearing Jill SAY it!   Nobody is saying that sex is dirty or a bad thing, at least I’m not saying that but we don’t watch housewives for that reason.  We want to see drama not sex!

And now for something almost as disgusting, Joe Giudice eating!  What the hell was that?  I thought they had good, solid Italian upbringing, why is this man eating with his mouth open?  He was also a huge, ass talking about his former friend and brother-in-law Joey Gorga.  What’s with the nasty comments when his wife is trying to patch everything up?  I like how he calls him a “little guy” when Guidice himself is all of 5 foot nothing, those muscles that Teresa thinks she’s seeing under his shirt is flab giggling.

The next day the men did some shooting and Joe Giudice shot two watermelons that were mounted on a tree and then shouted, “I’m good as hell, I’m fuckin John Wayne”.  Yes he did!  On a side note, did they really bring watermelons so that they could shoot them?  That’s so wrong on so many levels but this episode had so many things that were wrong the watermelon’s are sort of lost in the sea of inappropriate scenes.

I can’t wait until Teresa comes out with her “copy cat Bethenny” cocktails that smell like rotten eggs and dirty old dog farts.  I love Jacqueline, she doesn’t lie for anyone!

In all fairness, I think the weekend in the Catskills looked like a lot of fun!  The men enjoyed the skeet shooting and target practice, the women seemed to have fun shopping.  There was amazing food (regardless of Caroline’s ugly faces) and riding Quads, relaxing and having a few drinks.  It really looks like a rare fun trip on a housewives show.  No drama (although Caroline tried hard to create drama) just fun!

A few of the couples went to a local bar in the Catskills and since Teresa needs to be the center of attention she ends up taking the microphone and trying to find a single man for Caroline’s friend Delores.  I think poor Delores went along with it so as not to be the spoiled sport but she looked mortified.  Leave it to Teresa to embarrass the poor woman.

At least twice tonight Teresa tried to show she had money, style and class.  She insulted the store owners by saying that they looked like they’d never been in Bloomingdales then insulted the bar by saying it looked like it was right out of 5th Avenue.  (apparently she’s speaking of New York)  These are Teresa’s attempts to act like she has money, style and class but only managed to insult a few dozen people and make a complete fool of herself.

Melissa and Joey Gorga’s daughter Antonia is asked to participate in a Christmas Dance Recital.  I really thought it was going to be a bunch of little boys and girls dancing with their parents and grandparents gushing and tearing up.  This was a Ballroom Dance studio with mostly adults dancing in the show.  It was a really bad commercial for this dance studio and they won’t sell a whole lot of lessons based on what we saw but little Antonia did a fabulous job, she was beautiful and confident and her parents were very proud of her.  Kathy and Richie attended along with Joey’s mother but it was awkward for Kathy as the last time she saw her aunt was at the Posche Fashion Show and Kathy got yelled at.

It was nice to see Joey Gorga with his mother, he really did look very happy and Melissa said that her husband enjoys his mother when Teresa isn’t around.  Why did she have to bring up Teresa?  I wonder if mom creates tension between her daughter and son?  I’ve seen this happen in fact I’ve seen it with distant members of my own family.  The mother actually talks up the other sibling when they’re alone causing jealousy.  Things like, “you should see your brother’s house, it’s bigger than yours” or “You should see your sister’s sex toys, they’re more stretched out than yours”.  (Teresa cheated you see, she stretched it out with her hands)  All kidding aside I have wondered for a long time why Mrs. Gorga hasn’t stepped in to try to create peace between her two children.  Maybe she has and we haven’t seen it or maybe she is the cause of some of the tension?  Never can tell!

As Melissa and Joey prepare to go out producers, in keeping with tonight’s sex theme, show Joey groping his wife, more stuff we don’t want to see.  Staaaaaap, just staaaaap!  Kelly Bensimon and NeNe Leakes would be completely mortified and crawl under the table if they were present at any of these discussions.

If I may say a few words to Bravo, bear with me.

Dear Bravo, We don’t want to see our housewives having sex, we know they do it, most of them have children to prove it but it is not why we tune in.  There is nothing sexy about Jill Zarin, Teresa Giudice or Tamra Barney TO US!  Save it for Showtime After Dark.  Maybe you could do a Housewives After Dark and show those scenes on that show!  Thank you for your time.

Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen

Guests:  Jacqueline Laurita, Vicki Gunvalson and Dina Manzo?

What the hell was Dina Manzo doing on the show?  In our final “told ya so” moment of the night Dina Manzo admitted she would love nothing more than to be back on the show but now that she has her own show (which explains why she wanted to be there) she would love to do a few guest appearances like having coffee with Teresa or something.  (which explains why Bravo won’t let her be on the show)  Rumor has it that Dina begged to be allowed to return to the show but without her husband (who refuses to be part of the show) and her daughter (whose father won’t let her be part of the show) Bravo doesn’t want her.  Her final scenes during her final appearance on the show were so dull it was like watching paint dry.  She seemed to be wandering around her overly decorated house with her cat under her arm most of the time.  The only scenes that Dina was involved in that were even the slightest bit interesting involved Danielle Staub.  That story got old fast!  It made absolutely no sense for Dina to set up a dramatic meeting to tell Danielle that she wanted her out of her life.  Why not just cut her out of your life and move on?  It’s not like they even ever got together, apparently it was a few text messages, just stop the texting! Did she really think Danielle was going to just say, “Ok Dina, have a nice life, Bye!”?  (that would have been pretty cool if she had said that)

So I have to say, “I told ya so” because I said that Dina wanted back on the show and tonight proved that she did and in fact still does.  I think Dina assumes that if she just had a few scenes she could work her way back to being a full time New Jersey Housewife.  No more Grandma Wrinkles Bravo, Please!!!

Before they brought Dina out onto the set, Vicki Gunvalson sat in the primary seat while Jacqueline Laurita joined her.  While The Orange County Housewives are finished for the season I think that Andy wanted Vicki on so that she could answer questions about the shitstorm of press she got after the reunion aired.  Vicki’s boyfriend Brooks Avery has a history of being a dead beat dad and has even been thrown in jail for non payment of child support.  Andy didn’t specifically ask about the letter that Vicki wrote to the judge asking that Brooks be released from jail , Andy let her off the hook allowing her to simply say, “it isn’t all about what you hear about in the media.”  As usual Andy doesn’t ask follow up questions, he lets these kind of answers hang in the air and grow mold.  You can hear thousands of Housewives viewers screaming the next question at their TV set all over the country but Andy doesn’t ask anything.  He just moves on.

Vicki was allowed to sweep all her troubles under the rug.  I think she realizes what a huge mistake it was to announce that she had a boyfriend, announce his name and announce that her daughter Brianna was infuriated with her over this situation.  Was anyone fooled by her saying that Brianna is all good now?  Vicki might have been able to sell it if she hadn’t said, “it was just one bad day”.  Really Vickster?  Brianna was only upset with you for cheating on Donn for one day?  Oh and it happened to be the day that the reunion was shooting.  Another housewife who thinks viewers are stupid and will buy anything they’re selling…literally!

Vicki’s final blog on Bravotv.com included this:

When Andy asked me if I was dating, I admitted that I was. It has been eight months since I filed, and the reality is I am happy. I really don’t know if it’s the best timing or whether I should be dating already, but sometimes you just can’t control timing. It’s important for you to know, I filed for divorce in October and the reunion was taped in May. I want you to also know that my separation was not based on the influence of any one else — Not Tamra, not a man, not my family, no one

What Vicks fails to mention is that the letter she wrote to a judge pleading for the release of her boyfriend from jail was written in August of 2010, two months before she filed for divorce.  Her blog here tries to make it seem as though she didn’t start dating Brooks until after she filed for divorce but she sure did, in fact some unconfirmed reports are saying that she’s been seeing him since 2007.

Vicki Gunvalson tries to paint herself as the innocent wife who tried everything to save her marriage.  I think the trip last season to Turks and Caicos was in preparation for this divorce so that she could report to viewers that she tried everything before giving up on her marriage.  I think the fact is she gave up years ago, she has been putting Donn down on screen for years!  There is no respect, love or adoration from Vicki, we haven’t seen it and quite frankly I hope Donn finds a good woman who does adore him.

As for Vicki, I don’t believe anything she says.  Her digs at Jeana on Watch What Happens Live were unnecessary.  She actually said, “should the wine have been thrown?  I don’t know”   You don’t know?  Seriously?  According to Vicki Jeana learned her lesson from all of this.  Really?  I would hate to see how you and Tamra disciplined your kids.  Squirt them with the hose if they spill their milk?

For my purposes they could have simply had Jacqueline on the show and lost the other two.  We didn’t get any information out of Vicki except a few lies and Dina added nothing!

Mob Wives Finale by QuincyIL

Staten Island, New York City

Karen Gravano is in her apartment and speaking on the phone to David, a recently paroled felon and the father of her daughter.  David listens to Karen talk about the other Mob Wives and he advises her to not get caught up in the drama.  Karen shares that she finished the first chapter of her book.  David tells Karen “to not worry about the haters, let haters hate.”

David and Karen share a daughter, Karena, and their love for their childe brings them closer to each other.  They both end the phone call with “I love you.”

Renee Graziao visits Kelly her therapist and for the first time this season, Renee is happy.  She removed Jr. completely from her life. She feels empowered.  She describes her friendship with the girls as a close knit circle. She thinks they are in a really good place and there won’t be any cattiness, bickering or pulling of hair.

Carla Facciolo is speaking to Joe, her ex-husband on the phone.  Joe is living in a half-way house after recently being released from federal prison.   They agree to speak again during the week.

Nicole, a mother with an infant, visits Drita Davanzo. Drita is stressed because Karen gave her a chapter of her book to read.  Drita explains the timeline of her relationship with Lee.  She believes that Karen broke up with Lee in 97 and that she started dating him at the end of 99.  Karen was pregnant with someone else’s baby at the time.   Drita exclaims, “This is aggravating the shit out of me. This is crossing the enemy line.  She got not spades so she better throw in her hand.”

Karen and Renee meet and they discuss the book. Karen tells Renee that she gave a chapter to Drita who never responded.  Renee wants to know why she gave it to Drita in an interview.  Renee thinks that the friendship of Karen and Drita is “bull.” Renee says, “This is not a merry-go-round. Get over it.” Renee thinks that Drita and Karen should spend a week in the backwoods. She suggests that one or the other will come out.

Drita calls Carla who is in the neighborhood shopping and they agree to meet in 20 minutes at a Lounge to talk.

Drita is troubled. She went to a new salon where a stranger said that Aleeya, 10 years old, could come in the back and watch TV.  Drita wants to know how this woman knows her daughter and the woman says that she used to date a friend of her husband.  The salon manager shares that several year ago a man fitting Drita’s husband’s decription with a tribal tattoo brought his daughter to the salon to meet with the lady in the back.  The salon owner did not know his name, but he was not married.

Drita realizes that Lee cheated on her.  He was in prison for most of their marriage but in the two years that he was out he met with this woman and took her child with him. She has a big decision to make.

Carla shares that Joe cheated on her too.

Carla meets with Ali, a friend. The women discuss Joe.  He told Carla that he needed a place to live and he might end up on her doorstep.  If he comes home and then leaves it will upset the kids.

Drita goes to the office of a lawyer to learn about the process of divorce. She tells her story to him and he offers to help her when she decides.

At home, Drita is on the phone and the couch.  She calls each of the other wives, speaks briefly and cryptically, and then makes a date for them all to meet.

Drita in an interview curses Karen.  She feels that Karen is dishonest and trouble making won’t fly with her.

 Renee says “count me in.”  She sees drama coming.  She is looking forward to the confrontation.

The women dress up and go to Rare View to a restaurant on the top of a building. Renee hopes they are Mary Poppins with an umbrella because it is a long way down. 

Renee is on time. Carla and Karen are late. Drita arrives in a black town car with a driver and she is very late. The women greet each other.  Drita is visibly stressed. Drita wants the issue with Karen cleared up.  Drita thinks that Karen has told the others (and America) that she betrayed her so Drita wants to talk about a time line. Karen does not care about a time line.

Drita says that she started dating Lee in the end of 99 and Karen broke up with him in 97. Karen says she was still with his in 98. Drita points out that Karen was pregnant with David’s child, but Karen says she was still with Lee just cheated on him. Drita is irate.  Drita says that Karen had sex with Drita’s boyfriend at the time, but Karen said they only made out.  Drita mentions another man and Karen says that she admits cheating on Lee.

Karen tells her cast mates that Drita was her girl and that she lived with her therefore Drita had no right to date Lee. Drita goes ballistic. She said that she was not Karen’s friend at the time because they had not talked for months as Karen move to Phoenix to have her baby. Karen again accuses Drita of cheating on their friendship and she does not care about a time frame. Drita has officially gone insane at this point.  She yells that they lost contact.  Drita says that she respect Karen coming back even with her father’s situation. Karen’ s father was a rat. Drita is yelling that Karen came into her home and disrespected  her family. She screams at Karen “to go the F*** you come from.”

Drita gets up and goes to the other side of the table when Renee gets involved and pulls Karen down. Drita jumps on her and they are hitting and pulling hair. Karen’s black spanx are showing the whole time as her legs are in the air in her skirt is short. Drita wisely wore slacks.

There is a lot of yelling and “I am going to kill you , you  Mother F*****s.”

The camera men, male waiters, and men who just happen to be having dinner pull the women apart. It takes several men to hold each of the women.  Drita continues to tell Karen to go back to Phoenix and it’s over until next season.
(from Q: No one died. The end.)

Thanks Quincy, great job!  Lynn~

I hope you’re not all sick to death of the Real Housewives of New York Bobby Zarin/Simon Van Kempen thing that involves this blog, my goal is to stick to the blogs on the shows but I have to post this blog about it because it was written by my mentor and friend, Terry Aley.  Terry explains the story of how we met (virtually) and how this blog got started.  His perspective about the entire situation is outstanding and he has written it very extremely well.  I hope you’ll all indulge me this once and take a moment to read it:

http://terryaley.com/?p=4226

Terry, thanks for that and Q apologizes for spelling your name wrong! 🙂

Bethenny in Vancouver:  cute!

  1. boston02127 says:

    Great blogs guys, thanks.
    .
    Caroline is always a stick in the mud yet she never makes plans for anything, she just goes along and makes fun of everyone and everything and complains.

  2. kbinldo says:

    I’m still not over that “thing” Teresa was waving around in her talking head shots last night.

    Somewhere out there, Danielle is laughing her ass off. Mind you, she did some pretty creepy things, but playing show & tell with her hubby’s vibrating whatever wasn’t one of them.

    • boston02127 says:

      I was laying down trying to fall asleep when that came up. I had to open my eyes to see what Teresa was talking about and holding up for the whole world to see. All I could think of is imagine if it got fell off inside you? What would you tell the doctor? I’d be so embarrassed, I’d go to my grave with it. Also, do they use that because Joe sux in bed?

      • Error404 says:

        Guys like Joe who are all roided out often can’t get it up. It’s one of the side affects. Add on top of that having the same she beast straddle you year after year after year and there no way he’s getting it up without some kind of vibrating ring stimulator thig-a-ma-gig

        • boston02127 says:

          Oh… he’s on steroids. Bad.

          • Error404 says:

            As Kathy griffin would say “allegedly!”

            All I know is, he’s swollen up worse than violet from willi wonka and his wife won’t stop talking about his muscles. He seems to fly into a blind rage at the drop of a hat. All of his past spending and blatant illegal activities (signing his partners name to documents, being on tv yet going to the DMV and pretending he’s his brother, etc…) seem like mania to me, and his current naps while others watch his kids seem like depression to me. Tv sex always seem to be her climbing on top of him wether he likes it or not, and now the vibrator thing. Bad enough she boasts to the camera that she’s making the bacon now, but then she acts sexually aggressive toward him on camera. It’s a wonder people so “traditional” behave in such emasculating ways.

          • Dwight Schrute says:

            I would venture a guess that both Joes may be on the ‘roids. Their tempers seem to point to “roid rage.”

        • Caitlin says:

          Error – LOL – what’s wrong with you? Juicy Joe has “muscles and good hair,” dontcha know! Oh, GROAN! Do the ‘roids make him sleep all the time and talk and eat like a pig, too? And lazy? They say he’s quit tossing pizzas too. Bottom line, all the sex stuff with these two is revolting – that thig-a-ma-gig was the icing on the cake! And there Teresa was, flipping it around like it was nothing more than a child’s toy. ICK!!!!!!

          • MAMAZ says:

            I thought that was why the call him Juicy Joe.
            In the pictures Melissa showed he wasn’t as big and was really pretty cute.

        • Nancy says:

          error,
          I thought that “thing” was for Teresa?

    • Jezzibel says:

      So Teresa showed the world he could’nt get it up without help..maybe next week she finish de-balling him by whipping out the ol penis pump.

      • MAMAZ says:

        The ring wasn’t to help him get it up, it was for Teresa.

        • Nancy says:

          Thank-you MAMAZ. DId everyone else here fail sex ed?
          The vibrating part was for Teresa.

          • error404 says:

            i went to catholic school. sex ed was about sperm hits the egg, wear a condom or your weewee will turn green and fall off, etc… no one ever whipped out the latest goods from the pleasure chest.

            as for whom the vibrating ring is stimulating, i thought it was killing two birds with one stone. has technology so advanced that vibrators can pleasure the woman only? damn those nuns didn’t explain anything right!

            • Nancy says:

              Maybe you have a point.
              One day in the ER a “lady” came in with the CC (chief complaint) of having an egg in her vagina. One of the ER Docs said he would trade the next overdose with me if I would ask her if it was hard boiled. We really did have to know because we didn’t want it to crack on it’s way out. Never a dull moment in a County Emergency Room.

              • NYCer says:

                OMG Nancy! Crazy stuff. 🙂

              • AZ Girl says:

                what city are you in?

              • dsc60 says:

                but i want to know, was it hard boiled or not? j/k i really don’t want to know.

                • MoJen says:

                  lol, I want to know!!

                  • BarbinGa says:

                    I cant believe noone has mentioned his splits! I certainly can’t still do it. On the flipside, I’ve NEVER seen a man do it! Where did he learn? Why did he perfect it? Is Gia living his lost life in gymnastics?

              • Pghemtchick says:

                As much as I hate to think about it: the ring is there to help sustain an erection by decreasing blood flow. While the vibrator is there for his and her pleasure. Juicy Joe must have “timing” issues. Even if this was RHONJ after dark, I don’t think I’d be bragging about needing one.

                I must go bleach my head now thanks to the images. I wouldn’t care if they were the sexiest peeps on earth uggggh Tmi

  3. butterisafruit says:

    Good Morning Darlings.
    I watched Mob Wives. And got only the tail end of NJ. I did see the Chapel episode. Jac was right to remove herself. I thought Caroline was very disrespectful. Maybe it’s the Irish in me, we always say a special prayer when we enter a church/chapel for the very first time.

    I think Caroline is not happy and doesn’t want anyone else to be happy either.

    • boston02127 says:

      All she does is complain.

      • butterisafruit says:

        She does complain, in a mocking sort of way. I think that’s why I never could stand her. She’s as plain as dishwater.

        • Caitlin says:

          She’s always had her nose in the air in a holier-than-thou sort of way. And what’s up with the radio gig? Not that I thought she was good at it……. And what’s up with telling the 20-somethings they HAD to go away with her, and then that they could participate in the weekend activities?

    • Error404 says:

      It sounds to me like another case of bethennyitis. They all saw how frankel did nothing but make fun of everyone and everything and walk away idolized for her bad behavior, so now many of then snark shamelessly trying to imitate her. Too bad 90% of comedy is delivery and most of her copiers end up being labeled complainers, spoil sports and worse.

      Lord knows I can’t stand caro, but how exactly does someone go on a ruffles, ragu and rough sex weekend in the woods with Ter and NOT make fun of everything. It’s like a bad episode of mutual of omaha’s wild kingdom.

        I didn’t see last nights episode yet but happy to wait. lol
        I love how people think it’s ok to drink & shoot guns at a party. They do it here all the time & it’s really is sick.

    • Pghemtchick says:

      The only plus I saw with Caroline this week was she did some dishes. Maybe that was the most interesting thing she did. I was a lil annoyed that Tre and Joe disrespected his parents by making them do housework and the way they talked to them. I guess I’m not shocked at the lack of respect, but wow.

  5. boston02127 says:

    It’s hard to feel sorry for Mob Wives. I did feel sorry thou for Drita last night. I’m not sure I got it right. Did her husband have a baby with another woman when he was out of prison?

    • VAgirl says:

      No he had an affair with someone in a salon and took his daughter (with Drita) to the salon with him. It was embarrasing to Drita when the people in the salon knew her daughter when Drita had never been there before and didn’t think her daughter had either.

  8. boston02127 says:

    About Dina’s new show—from the Examiner:
    Andy Cohen and Dina Manzo went on to talk about Dina’s latest opportunity, a new TV show on HGTV called Dina’s Party. During each episode, Dina and the staff of her event company, Designer Affairs will create magnificent events in their clients’ homes. From a posh baby shower to an over-the-top fantasy wedding, Dina transforms the space into something breathtakingly beautiful and unique. “Dina is an accomplished interior designer and also runs a thriving event planning business – her Real Housewives fans will be very surprised to see this side of her,” said Kathleen Finch, general manager of HGTV. “Dina brings a unique set of skills to HGTV and I’m thrilled to have her join our growing team of expert talent.” The series is already in production and will begin airing on HGTV in September.

    First she’s an interior designer then a RHONJ. She quit being a interior designer on TV then quits RHONJ. Another wishy washy quitter (Jill) to give us a headache. Dina needs to go away.

    • VAgirl says:

      I always liked HGTV and thought they had a pretty talented bunch of people on their shows. Not sure what Ms. Finch sees in Dina, but maybe she’ll surprise us. It will be interesting to see.

      • MAMAZ says:

        What she sees is an audience that will follow Dina from the Housewives.

        • Error404 says:

          Because there are people willing to give up 30 minutes of their time to watch some lonely woman trapped in a sham marriage, stick $500 javazzled butterflies in centerpieces? That’s just depressing to contemplate.

          • MAMAZ says:

            What’s even more depressing is that I gave up over 60 minutes of my time to watch NJ last night.

  9. Caitlin says:

    Quincy, I must say that the only was I could get through RHNJ last night (TMI in the sex department!), was knowing that you’d recap today and feel the same way, Bravo, are you listening? Thank you for being the sane, tasteful, witty, literate, person you are. Man, I don’t know that I could turn on my t.v again if I thought I was the only person out here who felt this way! Bravo, are you listening? Even “Jersey Shore” is getting rid of its cast!

  10. T-REX says:

    Lynn, as you know I am boycotting this season of the shows, but I can tell you I agree with the whole sex stuff, since you blog the show you have to blog about what is shown on TV, plus everyone here comments and it really is TMI! I am not a prude, far from it, but certainly would not make the blog readers endure listening to my life “behind the curtain”. I don’t know why Bravo thinks that any of this stuff is interesting? As a side note don’t know what Teresa showed, but maybe she was getting Juicy ready for a stint in prison!

    • Kerry Okie says:

      It was a vibrating rubber band for Joe’s “thing,” as Teresa called it. I can’t figure out if she’s purposely trying to be more outrageous and over the top every season and she really thinks this stuff is entertaining, or if she’s telling Bravo to bend over.

      • T-REX says:

        Gotcha, which explains the Roid talk earlier, Juicy obviously needs a booster due to his checmical damage by roids(allegedly!)

  11. fatally flawed says:

    “I may have heard Joe saying it was his dad’s place”
    I heard that too.

    • Error404 says:

      I’m sure it is his dad’s place, as in ” I had my dad put it in his name so I won’t have to pay high tax and they can’t repo it if everything goes belly up”

      • fatally flawed says:

        *laughs*

      • T-REX says:

        It would be interesting to find out just how many properties are listed in others’ names that actually belong to JuicyJoe and his Teresagorilla so that they could avoid taxes and keep them safe from Bankrupty courts. I hope that the Bankruptcy courts are watching the series just to keep a running tab as to all the extravagance the Juicy’s are showing and what they didn’t report in their documents.

        • This one sounded like it had been in the family a long time. It looked pretty basic. I’ll bet most people stayed nearby in a hotel. There is no way it could have held the whole crowd and crew.

          • dsc60 says:

            i agree. i did seem like it’s been in the family for a while… at least in this instance i don’t think they’re covering anything up. Joe remarked about the bed that he and Teresa first “did it in” the same one they so generously let Jac and Chris stay in. nice.

      • Mookies1mom says:

        That’s what I thought too!

    • klmh says:

      I think so too. The chapel was built by his uncle, is that correct? So it sounds like a family lodge.
      Joe is not my favorite, but he was more relaxed and seemed to be in better spirits on last nights show than I have ever seen him before. Its probably because he is finally with his family, rather than her family and friends.

      • Kansas Girl says:

        It looked more like a hunting lodge to me. Basic, with room to bunk lots of people, a place to shoot and ride quads, snort and spit. Male entertainment. And the wives go along sometimes.

        • klmh says:

          It was a lodge surely, but the chapel had been made by one of his family, and we know Joe’s cousins are there a lot, so its just a fun getaway for them, imo…

  12. MAMAZ says:

    The house in the Catskills does belong to Joe’s dad. Teresa said so several times. It’s Caroline and Jac who kept referring to it as Teresa’s place.

    Caroline and Jac were so disrespectful in the chapel. At least Jac had the sense to go outside and calm down.

    Is there anything Caroline likes other than her sons? I have to agree though that quads are very dangerous. Riding them while drinking, especially at night was a bad idea.

    The sex talk in front of Joe’s father was disgusting. Since he didn’t tell the men to respect their wives and their privacy he must be as bad as them.

    Teresa was wrong to talk about any money issues her brother has, she’s the last person who should be talking unpaid bills! Still I think she is sincere about making up although I suspect it has more to do with her public image than love. Melissa has no intention of burying the hatchet anywhere other than her sister in laws head. And that also has more to do with public opinion than anything else. She is going to stretch this feud out for as long as she can.

    Joe Gorga makes my skin crawl. Even his scenes with his mother make me feel like a need as shower.

    The weekend in the Catskills wasn’t my type of thing at all. I enjoy the occasional trip to the country but I like to hike, swim, stargaze. It looked so noisy!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I think Teresa was trying to move forward with Melissa but Melissa really wanted to play tit for tat on TV! Melissa has made snide comments about bill paying and maybe Teresa was warning her that her hubby’s business was being talked about on the street. The wives make it and the wives break it remark was dead on.

      • Error404 says:

        That’s such a Jill maneuver! Remember when she spent an entire season torturing bethenny, and then just wanted to forget the past and move forward with a hug at the reunion? Yeah, if I was teressa and had been abusing my sil for years, I’d want to just bury the past and move forward with a clean slate now that she was on tv too!

        • PurplePrincess says:

          Exactly!! ITA !!

          • MAMAZ says:

            Except I don’t think Melissa has been abused. She gives as good as she gets. At a certain point, if nobody is willing to admit that they “started it”, you have to move on. Or cut ties. Anything else is beating a dead horse.

  13. IndinaHousewife says:

    Good morning. I was checking things out this morning and came across this on Reality Tea from and interview with Melissa.

    And similar to Tre, Melissa states she is also getting into the liquor business. “I have a champagne that I’m coming out with,” she said. “It’s called Magnifica Giornata and it stands for ‘magnificent day.’ It’s like a motto, ‘Every day’s a magnificent day.’” Seems like Ramona Singer has some competition coming her way!

    I don’t know why these women can’t figure out the odds of lightening striking the same place twice. They are never going to be as good as Bethenny. Its been done, they each need to find their own thing that is personal to them. Then viewers might want to support them because the viewer can see how much it matters to the person trying to sell it. That is why I have bought skinnygirl, I got to see how much B put into her brand, how really badly she wanted this to happen.

    Personally I am getting sick of it enough to boycott their products just on principal. Enough is Enough!

    • MAMAZ says:

      On OC Vicki’s job has always been a big part of who she is, the same with Ramona being a business woman on NY. And Bethenny was an entrepreneur from the beginning. It was part her storyline, can she have it all?

      Now each HW has a product to hawk. And each episode is an infomercial. Buy my song from iTunes, my nonexistant girdle, my generic make up, my feather jewelry, my cook books, wine and what’s next, Teresa’s line of **** rings?

      • IndinaHousewife says:

        You are killing me here. Not one of the comments I have to your last sentence is appropriate to post in a public forum. Love it! I think you deserve one of those awards Q was handing out previously. (Sorry forgot the name of the award, and too lazy to go look it up).

        P.S. Teresa could include a free recipe with each order. – Starting with Juicy Joe’s Meatballs.

      • Caitlin says:

        Oooo Mama, too funny!!!

        • MAMAZ says:

          IndianaHousewife – There are endless sausage and seafood recipe/jokes too.

          • IndinaHousewife says:

            Yep, but my humor can get to be off color pretty quick, so I think I will play it safe and just 🙂 I do not want o offend anyone.

      • Nancy says:

        It should be called…
        “What goes around comes around”

    • Maddie says:

      ^^^Melissa states she is also getting into the liquor business. “I have a champagne that I’m coming out with,*^^^

      Melissa should know that she can not title anything “”CHAMPAGNE”” due to the fact that it is that name alone is legally protected name to be used only in the Champagne region in France, what is the big bubbly is usually called Sparking Wine.

  14. Dwight Schrute says:

    Is it just me or are the video montages on WWHL getting really old and tired?

    Andy can’t run an episode without going to the one of Gia modeling. Last night he went to that old trick THREE times. Why do a montage of something from an episode that ran 15 minutes prior. I admit I originally found the one of Gia mildly amusing but all of the subsequent ones have really been annoying.

    In the try to say something nice department I’m surprise Joe could still do the split and I’ll defend Caroline on the pig since she was sitting away from it and Chris kept bringing her things like the tongue and head to get a reaction out of her, which he did.

    I also know people who’ve gone on quads at night and after alcohol and it did not end well. Whichever housewife (I think it may have been Jacqueline instead of Teresa) climbed onto her husband’s lap, which blocks his view, was really exercising poor judgement.

    • MAMAZ says:

      Everything about WWHL is getting old for me. I started to watch but I couldn’t listen to
      Vicki for more than about two minutes.

  15. WindyCityWondering says:

    Last night was a waste of airtime!
    Things I learned: 1) how thankful I am for Lynn and Q for setting up this cyber salon for us to amuse ourselves in, 2) Joe Guidice’s father has the cabin in the mountains where the money trees grow, 3) Franklin Lakes is boring but sticking these nitwits in the outdoors is even more so, 4) Melissa wants to mend the Guidice family riff only if she is the queen of the clan and that won’t ever happen (especially with her evil sisters in her ear), 5) Kathy needs to stop blaming Teresa for the feud between their dads over $200, 6) Joe Gorga is a toad and doesn’t belong on this show and 7) Jac brought the chuckles for what was a very boring, stupid and filler type episode!

    WWHL – Vicki lies, Andy makes eyes, and Dina got herself a set of new bubbies!

  16. T-REX says:

    Good morning again all! Something that I wish the RH, of all of the series’, would understand, “comedic timing” and “natural wit” is a gift, not something you can generally learn, even if you are taking acting lessons to be on the RH series. Bethenny has that snark and wit, naturally, that’s why her quips and jabs are so darned funny, many of the other HW do not have this natural ability, or if they do, they are not showing it on TV. I wish they would stop trying to be her~ Be yourself, if you have natural talent regarding your “wit”, let it come out naturally, not contrived as has been done since B left. Theres are a few exceptions, Lisa VPump,she also has that natural “Wit” that comes across as genuine and her own. Our Beloved Cat Ommaney(who needs to be back on a HW series) also has this natural talent, and would be a great addition since she doesn’t miss a trick, and she remembers everything. Even Mary Ammons(although Rich A is better), has this natural talent. No one currently on RHOC, RHNY or RHNJ has this, so stop trying!

    • fatally flawed says:

      Bethenny has a quicksilver wit, and a self deprecating style of humour that entertains and delights. It is a pretty rare gift and makes listening to her fast paced dialogue engaging and funny. I miss her on rhwny very much.

    • NeNe is also up there with Lisa and Bethenny. I thought Jacqueline was very good last night with her one liners.

      • T-REX says:

        I haven’t watched Atlanta for 2 seasons now, so I even forget their a franchise! I HATE Kim Z and ShebySheree so until these 2 are replaced, probably won’t watch ever again. I agree NeNe has a good wit.

  17. Noreen says:

    I just read Kathy’s blog on Bravo. I left a comment, but it won’t make it but I said she is part of the problem, not the solution. She is so angry with Teresa (right or wrong) that all her BS that she is the voice of reason is absurd. It just feels like she wants the feud to continue.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Kathy needs to mind her own business. If Kathy’s dad and Teresa’s dad have a feud over $200 then I can see why Kathy isn’t at T’s parents family functions. I have seen similar tiffs in my mom’s eight sibling family and the children were expected to honor their respective parents’ boycott of the offending family. LOL – so maybe Kathy’s problem with Teresa is that and Teresa’s mouth is nothing more than a hey tell your dad to pay my dad nonsense.

      • Error404 says:

        Wait, what? Ter and Joe are feuding over each not properly complimenting their new houses correctly. Now you say their dad is feuding with his own brother over $200? Oh yeah, this is all melissa’s fault. LoL ! God, the gorgas are like animals.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          Kathy’s dad brought Teresa’s dad over from da old country. Teresa said that the brothers had a feud over $200 being owed (not sure by who to whom). So this debt could be what has Kathy on the outs with the family. Teresa and lil Joey are feuding over the fact that Teresa and Mommy Gorga won’t kiss Melissa’s ass. It is never about what it is about. Logic goes out the window with these people.

  18. kmuellfa says:

    OT-
    I went to the gay pride parade yesterday, and brought a bottle of skinnygirl (I had not tried it yet). My friends and I loved it! I had never been a fan of margarita’s in the past b/c I could never stomach the sickly-sweet mix that was always used.
    We just poured it over Ice and a lime wedge, and it was soooo good! It was a warm summer day, and those SGM’s were very refreshing, and the best part is I have no hangover!

    • T-REX says:

      Congrats to all our Pride People on the blogs for the historic NY vote, I know all my friends that went to Pride fests around the country were beaming this weekend. I love Pride parades but it was rainy and hot yesterday and heard St. Pete was about 200+ thousand this year, so we sat this one out. I am a proud member of PFLAG and we had our PFLAG banner flying proudly yesterday on our house.

      • FLG says:

        PFLAG is a wonderful organization with a rich history. Thank you for giving it a shout out. It encourages and confirms unconditional love and support of/for the whole family unit. For me that meets my ideal for family values. Bless you and yours.

        • T-REX says:

          PFLAG is one of the agency’s me and my Hubs will send our charitable contributions to, educating family members and friends of the gay community is a huge responsilibilty so that especially young people don’t have a hard time when “coming out”.

  19. AZ Girl says:

    What a relief! I turned it off when they were eating dinner at the cabin and I missed the sex toy thing. For heaven sakes why would anyone show TV land that they have toys in the bedroom. I think Juicy Joe and joey both use steroids. Even though I think Joey does have a heart his eyes are sometimes just a tad crazy. They both have fits of rage which is another sign.
    Jac was funny last night. She was cute. Caroline is just unhappy. What a “debby downer”.

    • Kerry Okie says:

      I agree that Caroline is unhappy, and she tries to cover it with all that fake laughing. Like when she held up that knife to her throat at Thanksgiving when Teresa was trying to complain about Melissa, and then Caroline faked laughed up a storm. It’s like Jill putting on her pudding face smile and fake complimenting people that she really thinks are beneath her. Caroline went to the cabin just to get air time; she should have stayed home. I wonder what she honestly thinks about all the drunk sex talk; no, on second thought, I don’t care.

  20. WindyCityWondering says:

    Maybe Bravo was going for a “Bethenny does the country scene” last night…..if so IMO it failed.

  21. vilzvet says:

    Just read Teresa’s blog, she makes no mention of the TMI scenes and what she was holding up (ugh) except to say that “Joe is HOT!” How many times can she beat viewers on the head with that OPINION she is doggedly holding onto, LOL.

  22. TLM says:

    Now, if you had been a guest on the View and wanted to connect with Sharon, wouldn’t you call a producer or have your assistant call her assistant and get her email address? Jill wants people to think she’s so connected, but in publicly begging like this, she just looks more pathetic.

    I was actually embarrassed for her on WWHL when she said Adam Corolla’s wife is “a doll” and then she says, “Hi Lynette” and turns to Adam and says, “It’s Lynette, right?”

    • MAMAZ says:

      She is so desperate and obvious it makes me cringe.

    • Caitlin says:

      Our Jill must be in a coma not to realize how transparent she is. Why doesn’t Andy get something like that (“It’s Lynette, right?”) on a default reel – like his fave of Countess clapping?

      • T-REX says:

        I am convinced RandyAndy likes the antics of Jzilla, heck a whole blog was created to ‘dis her antics, so he gives her a “free” pass continually for her bad behavior, because it’s “free” press for Bravo. I still think Lynn’s blog, and the other RH Blogs on the net, should get some compensation for making Bravo so much money, I don’t think the viewership would not be near what it is for the Franchise if it wasn’t for Lynn, and the other blogs out there.

        • Caitlin says:

          Excellent points all, T! God knows he has her on often enough (too much!), and all that does is feed the beast that is Jill’s ego. She’s even pimping Bawby’s twitter account now, saying that if he had more followers, he might even tweet something. We’ve heard enough from him, on the one hand, but, on the other, since all their attempts at repression backfire, maybe………

          • IndinaHousewife says:

            What is she worried that Bobby is going to get backlash from last weeks show? Sounds like she is trying to drum up fans for him before the sh$t hits the fan.

            • T-REX says:

              You think Jzilla is actually going to let Bawby tweet, she can’t let him pick out his own clothing, let alone have an original thought on twitter. I think she is getting bored tweeting for her boogereating Pooch and wants another outlet for her own thoughts, this time using Bawby’s tweet handle.

              • IndinaHousewife says:

                I just checked Simon on Twitter and scrolling down a ways he says he has gained 1000 new followers – this is why Bobby now has a twitter account. Jill has to show that Bobby can get more followers than Simon. I do not do twitter but am thinking about it just so Simon can have my vote and Jill still loses!

              • ms molly says:

                Has anyone ever seen Bawby ever use a cell phone?

    • Golden Girl says:

      I caught that too. She wants us all to think that she has this fabulous circle of friends.

  23. TLM says:

    Guys, I’m “going mobile” today and my little netbook keeps doing crazy things like closing a window on me after I’ve spent 10 minutes writing, so I’m cutting and pasting from Wordpad to defeat it. Consequently I’m mixing a lot of topics in one post.

    Re: Jill begging Sharon Osbourne to follow her on Twitter. How desperate does this sound? Wouldn’t you, if you appeared on Sharon’s show and wanted to keep in touch, have your assistant contact hers and get her email address? Jill’s public begging doesn’t make her look connected – it just makes her look desperate. I actually felt embarrassed for her watching WWHL when she said Adam Corolla’s wife is a doll, as if she’s known her for 10 years, then says, “Hi Lynette!”, then turns to Adam and says, “It’s Lynette, right?” WTF, Jill?

    Jill has been rocking that turquoise tiered dress for about a week now as part of her Single White Female/ I Raided Bethenny’s Closet tour. She wore it to a movie premiere, to WWHL, and put pics of herself in it online. Jill, you look utterly ridiculous and need psychiatric help. Can a Kelly Bensimon-like breakthrough be far off???

    Ok, on to Ross Cassidy of Million Dollar Decorators. Or is it Designers? I forget. Very cute boy, but his boyfriend, the guy with the initials JAM (again, I forget the name) is such a bitch on wheels. “Who wants to hire a fatty?” Um, I dunno, I thought when you hired a designer, you were hiring them for their design skills, not because you want to sleep with them!! And I never saw such obnoxiousness surrounding the design of a tiny bathroom. I was also confused — this is a big gym with ONE shower??? And they were doing demolition without even taking away the shelving unit right next to the shower? Nothing here made sense to me. I did, however, wonder why, if “JAM” is so rolling in dough, why he doesn’t have a shower at his office that he can just leave the gym and shower at. Personally, I don’t like using any public shower. It’s just a pain in the ass getting dressed and bringing a whole change of clothes there. Unless I had no choice, my preference is just to drive home and shower and change there. I didn’t like the job he did at all on that huge house where the daughters were overseeing the project, and I resented that he acted like he was doing them a favor to spend their money. Does anyone else feel like they could do a better job than these people, and cheaper?

    I liked Mary on WWHL, but I couldn’t believe the stupid shit she was picking up indiscriminately for $2500 here, $3500 there. A board game? A little brass turtle? Seriously?? Girlfriend needs to get herself to some flea markets and Ebay. I thought part of the expense of hiring a decorator is that they have connections to get better deals on things than you could by yourself, not just to go wild and spend ridiculous amounts of money on stupid crap. And I would be damned if I’d let someone put a zig zag pattern on my floor and then tell me I’m wrong when I said I hated it. I guess this is the reason I will NEVER hire a designer.

  24. Mel says:

    Lynn,

    Please try to be more objective about Melissa/Teresa discussion. I love your New York blog, but your NJ one is painful at times. You have completely overlooked Melissa’s bad behavior and have yet to mention the fishy financing of Melissa and Joey’s house. Prior to finally being on the show, Melissa and Joey practicially campaigned to be on. AFter being overlooked for threey years, they finally uped their game by communicating informtion to Danielle and making digs on twitter and facebook at Teresa. I think these two are just famewhores, who are throwing their family in the mud to get into show business. No one is disputing all the nasty things Teresa says and does, but just because You don’t like Teresa doesn’t mean you have to hold Melissa and Joey in such high regard. Both couples are cut from the same cloth. I find it digusting that Kathy, Melissa, and Joey are using TV as a platefom to bury a family member. Whatever issues you have as a family no one deserves this kind of betrayal. Once the camera’s stop rolling, then what?

    • MAMAZ says:

      A lot of people like Melissa. I don’t happen to be one of them. But the great thing about Lynn’s blog is we are all free to voice our opinions. 🙂

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        I don ‘t like Melissa either – she gives off a Zarin vibe to me.

        • Anastasia Beaverhausen says:

          Melissa is a snake. Teresa isn’t perfect either but she’s harmless. Melissa, on the other hand, will scratch your eyes out to get attention then complain that you broke her nail.

          • NYCer says:

            great screen name anatasia! i miss that show

          • I’m calling it, Melissa is diabolical. The way she throws around “Thank You Jesus” all the while she is selling you out mirrors Jill making potato latkes for you after she tries to ruin your life/livelihood.

            It’s only going to get worse, because Melissa isn’t getting the warm loving renowned reception she thinks she deserves. Mean while (and for some unexplainable reason) Tree has a large group of fans.

            I am sure the Gorga plan was, get Melissa on- then enter her sisters next season. Every time I see Lyssa Simpson, she disgusts even more.

            I’m sure the Groga .

            • ms molly says:

              I can’t think of a more perfect word for Melissa than diabolical , and Joey Gorga’s eyes are a “tad crazy”.

          • Anita says:

            And how do you know that?

    • IndinaHousewife says:

      Melissa is not one of my favorites. In fact I have a reaction to her very similar to the one I have for Jill, just for different reasons. I do enjoy reading Lynn’s take, knowing that she likes and supports Melissa because it shows me a different perspective that I would not have thought about.

      I do not read this blog expecting everyone to agree with my perceptions ( I am not implying you do either ) but to see a different side of things. I like to play detective when watching these shows, more than I care about who like who. These are just my thoughts, I do not mean any offense:)

      • skogsstig says:

        To keep it simple… The only one I do like is Kathy – because of her pastries. If they taste half as fabulous as they look, she may not be off the mark to start a desert catering business. 🙂
        The rest? Tacky, tacky, tacky…

    OT (but I guess anything Zarin is never OT) – Booby Zarin is now tweeting and he is shilling some weight loss plan. He says that he lost 20 lbs. in 2 weeks (how healthy is that?) Jill must be pouring Diet Coke on his dinner.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I’m betting Jill opened a twitter account in Bawby’s name and he doesn’t even know it! lol

    • T-REX says:

      As I replied upthread, if anyone actually BUYS the fact that this is Bawby is tweeting, I have a bridge in brooklyn I can sell you. JZilla just wants another outlet for her own ideas and random thoughts, Bawby can’t even pick out his own clothing, clothing which I might add has her initials branded on them, you think she is going to let him have an original thought. She is just tired of tweeting for her boogereating pooch so she is adding another alias this time as Bawby.

      • Nancy says:

        Does Jill really think women are lining the streets waiting to
        be seduced by Bobby Zarin? I don’t think so.

        • FLG says:

          Only if he has a blank, signed, check stapled to his forehead.

        • error404 says:

          if sleeping with Bawby is the price one has to pay to get ahold of that $35mil and replace Jill as Mrs Zarin III, then I’d say yes, there is a line.

          • T-REX says:

            You betcha! I am sure there is an iron-clad pre-nup involved, as I believe he has one with Jzilla which is why he pays her for sex with jewelry. From what I have heard from my lawyer-family, which means in Jzilla terms I can speak of legal issues as if I were an attorney, HA, but I digress. I have heard many pre-nups have a clause that the outgoing “has-been” wife gets to keep her jewelry, and a little bit of cash, but not much else. May be the reason Jzilla and Bawby live in a smallish apartment because she gets that on her way out the door. I would guess that Jzilla owns nothing, maybe outside the apartment, and everything Bawby has is enjoined with the Zarin Family Trust. Bawby doesn’t own Zarin fabrics outright, he has other family members that have a monetary interest in the Zarin family holdings.

      • FLG says:

        Can I add my beautiful swampland in the Sahara? If you can sell your bridge and I can sell my swampland, maybe we will have enough money to get onto the show and replace a couple of the dragon ladies. I’ll be the witty gay guy and you can be the Queen of PFLAG. With Marriage Equality passing in New York, Hubs and I can get Bravo to pay for our FABULOUS wedding. We can diss Countess Squash Blossom High Horse by putting Avery in charge of the wedding planning and guest lists. Jillzy won’t get an invitation or will be seated in the second or third row, so that will give her something to stew about. Alex, Simon and Sonja get to sit in the first row. Kelly can photograph the parking lot, but not the wedding (that should keep that gnat busy) and Ramona can be flower girl and supply the booze for the reception. What do you think of my super secret plan hatching plan? (decoder ring extra-I have to have a product to promote) Now if I could only leak it to page Six……..

        • T-REX says:

          I can’t wait to see if LOGO will bring back the show about Weddings! They could have a show My Big Fat NYC wedding, I think that would be a hit!

        • Nancy says:

          FLG,
          You know Shrill will not tolerate being put in the 2-3rd row. Remember the fashion show
          Ramona invited her to but Jill walked out because she wasn’t in the first row and Ramona was.
          Speaking of your Fabulous wedding you have not instructed Quincy and I as to what music you want us to play. My cello repertoire is quite advanced if I may say so but I’m not so sure about our Madam Quincy. We could just cut Quincy out of the mix and go with a Marching Band like Woody Allan did. (Seriously did you see that one where he plays the cello in a Marching Band? He runs ahead with his cello in one hand and a stool in the other sits down plays a few bars with the band and then he’s off again,)
          At the end of the movie I think he ends up throwing the cello out the window.
          That will NOT be in my contract as a have a very lovely sounding cello thank you very much. By the way how much are you going to pay me? I’m not cheap, just like Jill Zarin isn’t cheap. A diamond necklace would be appreciated.
          Keep in touch.
          xoxoxo

          • FLG says:

            ROFL….. We’ll have to see how much Bravo is willing to spring on the music and diamonds. I think they should be willing to spring for at least as much as they budgeted for Ramona’s renewal ceremony, we are making television history here. Maybe Bawby can get us a great diamond discount if we allow Jillzy a first row seat??? I guess I’d just have to take one for the team on that. I’m sure she’ll find something else to complain about. I will make sure that her first row seat is totally wrong for the camera angle and first row seating will be assigned. No switching allowed. Since I will have sacrificed my Saharan swampland in order to get on the show, I have to draw a line in the sand somehow.

      • FLG says:

        She or one of her employees will eventually screw up a post making it clear that Jillzy is controlling the tweets. It probably won’t take more than a week or two.

        • mamecastle says:

          I am excited! Shrill blocked me so I can’t regularly see the insipid crap she says, so this is just a new window into her twisted self-image. Plus, I follow the poor dog. I asked Ginger if she had considered having her initials monogrammed onto Shrill somewhere, maybe her forehead (like Shrill getting her initials on Bobby’s shirts) to mark her territory so that some other dog doesn’t try to lick Shrill’s boogers right outta her nose.

          • FLG says:

            Love that! Booger territory marking. It’s a good thing she doesn’t own a Tom Cat.

          • FLG says:

              I am getting blocked by EVERYONE! Koo-Koo & Shrill of course which I totally deserved, but Sonja blocked me too! WHY?? I love her, I always say nice things about her…. (cries quietly into her bottled water…) If Ginger blocks me, oh well, it was a lovely friendship while it lasted!

      • FLG says:

        I am curious if Bawby’s old suits are going to end up on Ebay?

  26. WindyCityWondering says:

    My MIL has three children – 3 boys and one daughter. One of my SIL is so Melissa (she is married to my MIL’s favorite son) and really believes she should be held in higher esteem than the daughter. I married the oldest son and the SIL who married the youngest son. We love to watch the deluded SIL vs daugher drama at family functions. At times we get to laughing so hard at these nitwits that we have to excuse ourselves and “go for a walk”! This situation will never be resolved to any of the players’ satisfaction but it is hours of endless entertainment for us.

    • IndinaHousewife says:

      I am glad you have a companion to share the humor with you. I know from personal experience it can be really hard to attend these events when you feel that you are the only sane or normal one in the room. At least you don’t dread the holidays! I am jealous.

    • error404 says:

      Husbands and wives may come and go, but the Gorga clan (mommy, daddy, brother and sister) will always be there. Teressa and Joe are in a feud. Period. Sadly, they each drag in the in laws as distraction to the real issue. they are brother and sister and should get along. If you hate your sister’s husband (and who wouldn’t hate Juice as a BIL?) you suck it up, you don’t parade your hate all around tv. If you hate your brother’s wife (and who wouldn’t get annoyed at Mel… praise Jesus!) you suck it up, you don’t drag up petty housewarming cards and show it on tv “look, she told me to get a hobby!” whah whah whah! The whole idea that this is between Ter an Mel is idiotic IMHO FWIW. This is between the 4 Gorgas. Ter and Joe didn’t resolve jack spit during their sit down and suggesting a Ter and Mel sit down was BS and just done so the two dueling fame whores could get more screen time. Smoke and mirrors. The Grogas are a clan of animals who fued with siblings over nothing, for multi-generations apparently. Mel may be annoying, but trying to scapegoat her for her in-laws f-ed family with petty feud going back to before she was born isn’t doing anyone any good and I’m shocked at how many people gleefully participate.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        The elements of this feud are older than time – sibling birth order and rivalry, family acceptance of someone outside their familia, male vs female grandchildren and just plain stupid petty jealousy. Just a thought – maybe if the gordon mended his relationship with his sister and his parents then Melissa may be more accepted by the Gorga clan.

    • error404 says:

      I’m confused… your MIL has a favorite son? to borrow from the HWs: “Who does that?” lol

      • IndinaHousewife says:

        My mother had favorites – first my sister, then my brother neither of whom speak to her now. So guess who won by default? It happens…….

      • I remember you saying that or brother believes your mother favors you. Isn’t it interesting that as old as someone gets, even if they are married with children of their own that sibling rivalry can still be an issue.

        • Nancy says:

          RR,
          I think I better ring up my sister and ask her if she still loves me.

        • error404 says:

          yeah but no but yeah but no… lol

          my mother doesn’t have a favorite (nor does my MIL). What my brother was talking about was that now that we are grown, my parents have a habit of fawning over the ones they see the least, and being crankiest with those they see the most frequently, so the roles change depending on who the closest at the time. Does that make sense? My brother retired last year and moved close to my elderly parents, so right now he is the only one who sees them everyday and does a lot for them, and hence bears a lot of the crankiness too.

        • IndinaHousewife says:

          It is very true. I would like to say I am way beyond worrying about stuff like that but the truth is I am not. Now I just acknowledge that it is ok for me to feel that way and move on to more important things. I am finally starting to like getting older, things roll off my back much easier and I am becoming so self aware! Ha

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Yes my MIL has a favorite and all the other siblings agree she has a favorite! Who does that? Lots of families have black sheep so why not the golden one?

        • error404 says:

          my in-laws are a lot like my family. the middle kid is definitely the “black sheep” but also can be seen as the “golden one” because one thing that’s makes them black sheep with the other kids is the parents being almost deaf dumb and blind to many of their many many faults.

          • WindyCityWondering says:

            MIL’s favorite was supposed to be the “baby” but then along came the “oops”. lol and the favorite (and his wife) truly believe he should be the “favorite”. I asked once if they had a favorite amoung their three kids and they both exclaimed NO WAY! Strange but true and always entertaining.

        • dsc60 says:

          my ex-MIL had 3 boys, 1 girl and openly admitted that she had a favorite and i was married to him. trust, it made it VERY difficult for me. my ex-husband was so unaware and/or in denial that not much had an effect on him.

  27. raven says:

    Lynn, I see Kathy in a much different light. Read her blog. She is nothing but a trouble maker who is constantly taking cheap shots at Teresa. At the same time, she overlooks or makes excuses for any bad behavior from Joey Gorga. I like her family and I’ve been trying to like her all season, but I find it so difficult because of this behavior.

    • MAMAZ says:

      I’m with you Raven. I don’t find Kathy or her husband likable. And she should have told him to stop making tasteless jokes at her cousin’s expense.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        I like Kathy’s interaction with her immediate family. And I think she takes Melissa/Joey’s “side” so she gets more screen time.

  28. vilzvet says:

    Just caught the second of the Summer by Bravo commercials. This one has NO Jill whatsoever, just a snippet of Luann. No Bethenny for that matter either. Teresa still looks bad in this one for some reason.

  29. Eve from CT says:

    Caroline Manzo is so boring. I just don’t get the Bravo interest in her. Plus except for one liners I don’t believe that she has good advice to give. Melissa is the one who will not let it go and Kathy supports her in this. I can’t believe I’m saying this but……I’m on Teresa’s side on this one. Eventhough Teresa didn’t want Melissa on the show….it may be the best thing to have happened for her.

    • vilzvet says:

      She IS a big bore. By the way, both Caroline and Jacqueline should be spanked for their disrespect in the family chapel. I couldn’t get over that…the chapel obviously means alot to the family and all the laughter seemed out of place.

      • Eve from CT says:

        I totally agree….Caroline expects perfect behavior from everyone and then acts like a child. I thought the idea of the chapel was very nice.

      • dsc60 says:

        in their defense, i’ve gotten into fits of laughter at some of the most inappropriate times also. it always reminds me of the Mary Tyler Moore episode when she attended the funeral of the clown (forgot him name). that was one of my favorite episodes ever.

  30. NYCer says:

    Re: WWHL
    -Jacqueline said the money from Ashley’s car came from Ashley’s Bravo paycheck. Darn it Andy! Don’t pay her!
    -I couldn’t stand that Dina was chewing gum on WWHL last night. It was sooo gross.
    -On the aftershow Vicky got asked if Brooks was the man from Cabo, and she said absolutely not and that they look nothing alike. I feel bad that I posted previous comments with the online photos comparing Brooks to Cabo man! They sure did have a resemblance but I guess photos can be deceiving.

  31. 2Stupid says:

    OT, but gosh I hope this is true, Naught but Nice is claimin Cindy Barhop (intentional) already knows she is not coming back. I tried to paste link, but it won’t let me. Anyone esle having these issues?

    • error404 says:

      http://www.popeater.com/2011/06/27/real-housewives-alex-mccord-cindy-barshop-bravo/

      “but nothing was as interesting as one Real Housewife talking about the show in the past tense. “Cindy [Barshop] barely spoke at the taping,” a cast member tells me, “And when she did talk about her time on the show it was in the past tense. She is definitely not coming back.”

      Also buzzing around today is a new report by HollywoodLife that in addition to Cindy, original housewife Alex McCord will also not be around for a fifth season, but in an exclusive statement to PopEater, Alex rebuffs such claims.

      “If I had a dollar every time an ‘inside source,’ i.e. a cast member, leaked a ‘story’ that I was out of RHONY, I’d be a multi-millionairess!” Alex wrote to me.

      A spokesperson for Bravo released a statement, telling me “No decisions have been made regarding next season and everything at this point is rumor.”

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Wondering if that “castmate” is doing more wishful thinking bullying…..Alex did alright considering this season. If anyone failed to deliver it was JILL.

      • T-REX says:

        Well it wouldn’t “off-season” of RHNY without the rumor that Alex is not going to be on the show. That rumor gets passed around each season, and she is still here. Muffmower brought nothing to the show and it’s good riddance to bad casting on that one.

        • FLG says:

          Has anyone spotted Clarabelle towing a carriage around Central Park yet?

        • sue says:

          Ya know, if Andy and Bravo were smart they would get rid of Kelly,cause she would always be with Jill anyhow and they would technically be getting a 2 for 1 deal!!!

      • Adgirl says:

        Don’t believe this guy! Rob Shuter was AT Jill’s bitchday party .. he’s in her pocket. Another Alex is leaving the show leak … UGH!

  32. LoriOkie says:

    Has anyone seen this?? I’m all for giving Cindy the boot, but firing Alex and keeping the evil ones??

    http://www.hollywoodlife.com/2011/06/27/real-housewives-new-york-city-alex-mccord-cindy-barshop/

    • error404 says:

      I don’t know why Jill is going around saying her buddy Cindy is out, but her rumors of Alex being fired every single year are getting dull. And who’s gonna believe an article that actually thinks Jill’s caterer Jen Gilbert was an actual housewife and then left the show. LOL!

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Cindy who?? Jill would throw LuAnn and Kelly in the Bravo volcano if it meant she got to keep her goldpated, moldy apple.

  33. LoriOkie says:

    Oops. Error beat me to it 🙂

  34. WindyCityWondering says:

    Jill will never stop going after Alex and Simon – it is time for the annoying yenta to be moved off the show. If she was leaving it would light up the internet, trend to Mars on twitter and bring fans back to RHNY. Bravo needs to grow a set.

  35. 2Stupid says:

    Did anyone find it odd that Jac and Dina were not on WWHL at the same time? When Andy said Jac was leaving and Dina would be joining she just got up and left right during the show. It was very strange. In her blog today, she refers to Dina as her sister in law and never by her name. I have heard Caroline and Dina have issues, but is Jac and Dina on the outs too? Does anybody have any scoop on this?

    • NYCer says:

      I found it odd and awkward, but if they were fighting I don’t think Bravo would accomodate a request to appear separately–I think they would be encouraged to continue the fight on the air.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Jac couldn’t bet off that set fast enough – Dina didn’t acknowledge either her brother Chris or Jac being there either. It was odd behavior for the family that is thick as thieves. Dina was ready to dish about Teresa and Melissa and I wish Andy would have let her do so.

    • Larke says:

      What exactly are Caroline and Dina fighting over and how do you guys know this? I don’t generally follow HW’s news, but I have never heard this. And if Jac and Dina didn’t acknowledge each other that would be telling. It has always seemed over the seasons that someone in the Laurita family is fighting, but there are a lot of siblings so it’s not that surprising.

      • error404 says:

        Rumor is that Caro has added Teressa and Dina to her ever increasing feud list. No one says what exactly they are not speaking about.

        What gives the rumors legs is that since they leaked, none seem to ever be in the same room together at the same time. Caro threw a big premier party for RHNJ at the Brownstone which Jac and most of the cast/family went to. Ter oddly threw a rival party on the same night in a different place. Dina went to Ter’s party, not Caro’s.

        Now Jac and Dina were both on WWHL on the same night, but didn’t appear on the same stage together. Jac got up and left and then Dina took her place. Odd.

      • nathania says:

        iit would not surprise me if Dina demanded that the ladies make a show of force and unity similar to the one that they made when they got danielle staub fired, i,e. demand her place on the show be reinstated or they would all leave. my guess is teresa probably said no because that would mean too much manzo real estate and far less camera time for her. caroline and jacqueline were relieved and didn’t feel pressure to make a stand after that.

        what freaking kills me is how no one is talking about it. if I were teresa I would be about to knock caroline out, caroline always keeps her bodies buried but she’s all too happy to drag everyone else’s into the light of day.

    • Christine says:

      Jac also tweeted that she and Chris were asked to leave their 1st row seats in the audience because they had run out of space. She said something about Andy getting a bigger studio. She did take off as if her Botox was melting, though – hhhmmm.

  36. Larke says:

    I didn’t watch most of the show because I refuse to watch shows where animals are being treated so disgustingly in any form. I am not preaching, just saying. I didn’t even watch NJ Thanksgiving because I knew they were picking out their very own turkeys to kill…sorry, but that makes me sick to my stomach.

    So…I am guessing people are mad that Caroline didn’t want to be around the pig, but I have to agree with her. I would not be in the presence of that and I would never under any circumstance just eat meat to appease the hostess or company, HOWEVER I know my surroundings and the people I’m around and would never willingly go into a situation like that because I would know there would be hunting and dead animals. So, it was Caroline’s responsibility to stay out of that situation if it made her uncomfortable, but regardless if she refused to watch or eat the pig then I don’t blame her.

    Again, I didn’t want the entire episode so I don’t know what happened, but I did read comments blasting Caroline for being rude at the dinner so I assumed it was that kind of situation. Trust me, I don’t take lightly to defending her either!

    Lynn, I love when you use that picture of Caroline- it has to be the worst picture ever. She looks bad.

    • Nancy says:

      Larke,
      Where have you been all of my life? Finally as animal lover like me. 🙂
      This issue comes up a lot in my life. My friends and my sister know to “warn” me if there’s going to be any overt animal BBQ’s etc. However I don’t make the other diners
      feel uncomfortable I just relocate or I leave.
      Again thank-you for your views. 🙂

      • neroes says:

        I’m the same way. My husband eats meat but he has to cook it himself. It’s the cruel way these animals are treated that gets to me.

      • Larke says:

        Absolutely Nancy, I would never intend to make anyone uncomfortable and I would NEVER preach to others about their food choices. In general, I’m just not a preaching kind of gal, I lead by example of what I do, and people are free to make their own choices. But, just like you said, everyone around me knows my lifestyle choices and wouldn’t invite me to something like that and whenever going somewhere that I’m not too familiar with (like a friend of a friends cookout) then I eat before I go and stay away from meat. However, if I turned up at a party and there was a pig roasting, I would absolutely not stay, but I would be polite and I would thank the hostess before leaving. It is my choice whether I want to be around something like that (and honestly, my stomach nor heart could handle knowing there is a pig roasting at the same place I am), but I do need to be respectful of others choices and I only hope they will respect mine in return.

    • error404 says:

      it’s always hard to relate these tv show to real life IMO. I can’t stand hunting and guns and blatant animal slaughter either, which is why I’d never in a million years go to Ter’s cabin. I’d just politely decline the invite. I did go to an in-law party a couple years ago where I stayed clear of the roasted pig on a spit and didn’t try any. Bravo wasn’t there with a crew, just family members filming on video, but still I didn’t go on camera stating my dislike of the meat, etc… I think most people feel that if you accept an invite, criticizing the host is bad manors. But the HWs thrive on shredding every party they attend, claiming on camera that the free food they’re wolfing down is substandard, and the free booze they are gulping down is cheap, and where’s the napkins, etc… in short, Money Can’t Buy You Class should be Bravo’s official logo!

      • MAMAZ says:

        I am a vegetarian and a member of PETA. I hate any images of animal slaughter. But buying your meat at the grocery store involves as much and often more cruelty than purchasing cage free animals or hunting. I think it’s important for people to know where our food comes from.
        Caroline has no problem cooking meat or watching her boys fling pig parts across the room. But she doesn’t want to see one’s dead eyes on the table. She’d prefer they sliced it and brought it to the table so she could eat it in ignorant bliss. Tough shit Caroline, that’s what a dead pig looks like before you buy it in a package so your grown children can play the ham game.

        • Error404 says:

          Hunting and slaughter are really two separate issues to me. The pig wouldn’t have bothered me too much, but no way would I ever go on a hunting trip. Everyone I know who hunts, hunts for sport. Did juicy really shoot that pig? I’d assumed they’d bought it. Pretty much everything most people eat can be raised in a farm yard, so yeah, I’m gonna stick with my belief that there is no reason why anyone in the 21st century has to hunt. unless the manzo boys decide deer meat sticks best to the wall, I’m gonna stick with there being no reason for anyone on the show owning a gun.

            I obviously don’t condone hunting. Killing anything for fun is demented.
            And yes they bought the pig. But once again Caroline has what someone earlier called her holier than thou attitude about the pig.
            Eat meat or don’t eat meat. But a dead pig on a table is no more disgusting than dead pig in a nice plastic wrapper.

        • Larke says:

          I agree meat is meat no matter how it gets to your table. Caroline is hypocritical in that fashion. Maybe if people weren’t blind to that, they would be less likely to eat meat, but most people purposely turn a blind eye to that because they know it is barbaric and they don’t want to think about it. The treatment of animals in the meat, and even dairy, industry is heartbreaking to me which is why I truly can’t even watch it on a silly HW’s show. But, like I said, I don’t judge because as much as I wish I never wanted to eat cheese, I sometimes slip up and do- nobody is perfect, but just trying to be as kind as you can to all things around you can get pretty far in life.

          Even thinking about the wild turkey country pasta at the cabin- yuck! I would have had to pack as many snacks as Jac did wine!!

      I agree with you. The head of the lamb was just awful as well. I would have excused myself from the room until the offending objects were removed. If the host decided to keep it on the table to make fun of my reaction, that’s ok. More for them and healthier for me. Dessert is just around the corner.

      that’s the party line they always give.

      i have to say a small part of me hopes it is true. watching them torture alex and ramona this season was awful. sonja avoided most of it because she was too fragile to engage them even though she handled herself with a lot of class.

      but it will be a relief if alex goes, because that means no more bravo for me, I will deprogram channel 37 from the remote control. to paraphrase loser ann: plus jamais.

      choose carefully, bravo, I am sure I am not the only one that feels this way.

      but it would be nice to finally have a reason to kick the addiction.

    Sorry I know this is annoying, but I can’t paste anything. I wanted to paste what is Andy’s blog about the NY reunion. Basically, he said the brunettes gave Alex a lot of hell, but she gave as good as she got. He also said after the reunion the had to take a couple of days from blogging to get back to a happy place. Wish I could post verbatim, but can’t paste.

    I went to the doctor for my yearly physical. The nurse started with certain basics.

    “How much do you weigh?” she asked.
    “135,” I said.
    The nurse put me on the scale.

    It turns out my weight is 180.

    The nurse asked, “Your height?”
    “5 foot 4,” I said.
    The nurse checked and saw that I only measure 5′ 2″

    She then took my blood pressure and told me that it is very high.

    “Of course it’s high!” I screamed, ‘When I came in here I was tall and slender! Now I’m short and fat!”

    The doctor put me on Prozac.

    What a bitch!

          • FLG says:

            The vacation was delightful. When I got back I immediately hit the kitchen. I prepared lunch for 30 of hubs co-workers. It was all totally homemade. I cooked it and then promptly put it in the fridge so the next day, it only had to be reheated. It went over well. There was only one portion left, and I had made extras so plenty could have double portions if they were hungry. I didn’t prepare dessert-someone else took care of that. I was in charge of the main course only.

            • Okie Folkie says:

      Lynn: In Ramona’s newsletter she talks about how hilarious and “spot on” you are with your critiques. She also mentions the fact that Jill was trying to shut the blog down and how Jill deletes negative comments on her FB page and on Twitter. It is very flattering.

    • After being in the woods without any technology for over a week, I decided to give up New York. But, as it sounds like you are becoming part of the storyline I have to steal a quote from “The Godfather”: Just when I thought I was out they pull me back in! UGH!!!

      Lynn, T-Rex as an honorary member of the EmpressQuincy soothsayer club, is asking can you do an “I told you so” after the RHNY Reunion Show, so that all in IHJZ land knows that the wonderful “Official Outing” of this Blog on National TV(okay cable TV but it’s still national) is the reason behind the Quickie Reunion that occured more than 5 weeks before the rest of the episodes are aired!

      Is there an independent, unbiased source that can show Jill’s numbers before and after the 30th event? I ask because I don’t want to have my following used by the forces of evil….and at this point, Shrill knows what is coming and may just elect not to allow anyone to follow her until after the event.

    EXERCISE FOR PEOPLE OVER 50

    Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side. With a 5-lb potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute, and then relax.

    Each day you’ll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer. After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato bags. Then try 50-lb potato bags and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute. (I’m at this level.)

    After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each bag.

    Teresa playing with that cock ring thing … tugging and whatev … blech. I kept waiting for her to proudly announce their “Juicy Joy Toys”.

  49. PJ says:

    I stopped watching OC so let’s see if I understand what’s going on with that from reading this blog. For the last two seasons (or is it three I forget) Vicki and Tammy Sue have been horrible to Gretchen because they claim she was cheating on Jeff and they have raked Slade over the coals because they claim he is a deadbeat dad. Of course Vicki and Tammy Sue have done all this because of outrage at how wrong these things are, cheating and being a deadbeat dad that is.

    Now it comes out that possibly since 2007 Vicki has been cheating on her husband with not just an alleged deadbeat dad but one who has been put in jail for not paying child support. As I understand it Slade has not been put in jail which has to mean that he really isn’t a deadbeat dad but perhaps he’s behind on payments although still making payments to child support. Plus Slade’s ex never said Slade wasn’t paying support but that he wasn’t paying expenses, which my understanding is that he really isn’t under obligation to pay any more than child support and medical bills which his ex would also be partially responsible for. So Vicki’s affair is with a guy who did go to jail so he is actually worse than Slade. Where is the moral outrage from Vicki, I mean she tried to get the judge to let him out of jail for goodness sake. Is Vicki only morally outraged when Gretchen does something (allegedly because where is the actual proof) that Vicki doesn’t approve of? Plus Vicki did cheat on her husband not on a fiancé. In my book cheating is cheating husband or fiancé, but husband trumps fiancé as far as I’m concerned. Cheating on someone who you have pledged to be faithful to and someone to whom you owe your loyalty is a pretty bad thing so why throw stones at Gretchen?

    Then there is Tammy Sue. So TS accuses her ex of throwing a dog leash at her but she throws wine in Jenna’s face. TS is outraged that anyone would get in her business but she calls Slade’s ex on camera to get her nose in Slade’s business and she gets all into Gretchen’s business with what’s his name. Interesting double standard plus no moral outrage at her “friend” Vicki for doing exactly what TS has been screaming at Gretchen for these past two or three seasons.

    The level of hypocrisy is just unimaginable; I don’t think a screen writer could make this stuff up. This is the reason I stopped watching OC and never will again. I wonder if Vicki or TS ever heard the one about people who live in glass houses; maybe they just don’t understand what it means? Makes you wonder.

      These women are old, yellow-gray long haired divorcees pumped full of botox hocking the wares of anyone who will put their name and face on a product, cd or book.

      Most of these women are not wives, nor own their homes. What makes them housewives besides the paltry legitimacy given them by the show and those of us who acknowledge their existence?

      • PJ says:

        Why are we giving them any legitimacy and acknowledging their existence by watching this show? The viewers give these women their power because they watch the show and the viewers can take it away if they stop watching. I refuse to watch OC any longer.

        • Amy Matheson says:

          I cannot look at Vicki anymore. Ever, so I can’t watch either. I have a real physical and unhealthy reaction to a human so vile.

      i’m not disputing most of what you’re saying, however, i’m sorry, but I won’t let Mr. Smiley off that easily. granted this is from 2009, but i seriously doubt he even came close to catching up considering the amount. i’d even bet that it’s quite a bit higher now. we know he hasn’t won the lottery, and doesn’t have a great paying job, if any at all, so there’s no way this was satisfied. there are also articles that state that his driver’s license is suspended, however, he’s driving anyway. sound familiar?

      • MAMAZ says:

        And just because a judge CAN put someone in jail for non payment doesn’t mean they have to or will. Often the judge will opt not to incarcerate a deadbeat dad because if he’s in jail he can’t contribute to the child. Judges have a lot of leeway in this matter.

    It is probably already posted above but from Ramona’s Newletter:

    There are many blogs out there on the internet that critique our show. Although I don’t read them all, there is a particular blog that I believe is very spot with it’s opinions. Lynn from Chicago’s blog is hilarious and very accurate with her posts about the show. Jill unfortunately has been trying to shut down the blog for a long time and actually accused Simon of being apart of it. Jill continually accuses Simon of tweeting negative things about her (which isn’t true) and deletes any comments with any kind of criticism about her on Facebook and Twitter. Seems a little immature to me.

    I think there is even a link in the newsletter.

      I don’t get why they all need secret newsletters with more info. Does bravo censor their blogs?

When I first heard the comics voice yelling, “Booowwwbyyy” I swore it was Jill. It sounded just like her! She roasted Jill for fifteen minutes and it was hysterical! I had tears I was laughing so hard. I took the wig and made a funny comment that was so tame compared to what the comic had said. I was surprised Jill took it so seriously. Oh well! It seems everything I do makes Jill upset.  What’s a girl to do?” did bravo just not get the comics sign off, or are they really editing both the show and the blog to make Ramona seem worse than she is?

    The Bethenny worship on here is unreal. She is not that funny. I don’t think she’s any better than any of the other housewives. I watch all of the franchises and really the only housewife I actually like is Lisa Vanderpump but I would not be completely surprised if she turns out to be not so great in Season 2.

    Back to Bethenny. All of you are so hard on every housewife but give Bethenny a free pass. She is an emotional basketcase. She repeats everything she says over and over. She freely admits that she hates people. She is horrible to her sweet in-laws. I feel really sorry for Jason’s sweet parents for getting a daughter-in-law like her. I don’t hate Bethenny. I realize she is human and has her flaws and strengths, but the nonstop worship of her on this site is weird. When I saw that she is selling out venues for people to watch her just ramble about nonsense on stage–I was dumbfounded. I can’t believe people would pay for that.

    I think all of the housewives are materialistic, whack jobs but I can’t stop watching them. It’s amazing to me that these people exist. However, I don’t feel guilty or ashamed for watching. It is great entertainment.

    Also, I don’t hate Jill. I don’t like her either. She is just as dispicible as all the other housewives. I mostly feel sorry for her. I can’t imagine being that miserable and needy. Has anyone noticed that Bobby Zarin looks just like that sleaze that Tom Cruise plays in Tropic Thunder?
    Les Grossman. Here is a link. See for yourself

    And I LOVE Andy! He is the best and if it weren’t for him we wouldn’t have these shows to talk about! Of course he doesn’t give hard hitting questions. He needs to keep his ladies happy. I wish he would be my gay husband.

      Trust me, not everyone here adores Bethenny. I often disagree (in my mind) when people put her on a pedestal, but I do like her and surprise, I don’t hate Jill either.

      However, you totally lost me on Andy! He’s almost as bad as the worst of the HW’s. WWHL needs to end! He rarely has a ‘good’ show anymore where the guests jive with the topics. I mean why would he invite Dina and Vicki on last night’s show? Honestly?!?

    • sue says:

      I Love Andy also, but he has let things go too far, especially with Jill Zarin. Andy created this Zarin monster and now, because he never nipped her behavior in the bud, she has him by the you know whats, and he pity of it is that it is sooo obvious. Look, I have seen Andy put other HW in there place, but when it comes to Kelly and Jill he backs off, and they are 2 of the worst offenders of everything offensive!!!

  55. Sonjafan says:

    Great Blog Lynn, as usual. I was pretty shocked by the sexual content. I can deal with the talk, but the ring put me around the bend. Now getting onto Vicki on WWHL…can we say disgusting. She lied throughout the entire season. She and Tamra threw boulders at Gretchen since she came on the show, without real proof. Here we have definite proof of Vicki cheating with a deadbeat dad, that also had a child with another woman, while he was married? She treated Don like crap and now she is with this loser? She deserves everything she gets for her over the top supposed morality over everyone else, and I hope this guy takes her for everything she gets. However I feel Karma will bite her on her big ass.

Flojo ran a mile in a second and all of a sudden people think my fat a$$ can jog. LOL) Why gay people want to endure this marriage torture baffles me but hey I always say what is good for the goose is good for the gander! JUST KIDDING on the torture aspect (OF COURSE!!!) but I know you must have felt like celebrating a little bit! I hate to be that person that says “I have gay/black/hispanic/alien friend” but I TRULY do have bestfriends that are gay, have known them since middle school and we are STILL friends today. I have watched a few succumb to dis-ease and I sigh, wishing TRUE health care was available for all. One day people won’t get GREAT heatlth care because they dribbled a ball.

        Rememeber what I said about the spiders and the webs! This is a spider but we have a long way to go. I personally don’t care who gets married (barring kids) DO YOU!!!

        • FLG says:

          I look at it this way…it’s only my business who marries whom, when they are marrying ME. Let everyone be allowed to make their own choices. If you don’t believe in gay marriage, then don’t marry a gay person.

        • FLG says:

          I remember what you said about the spiders and the webs. I will not forget that ever. There are a lot of spiders out there, but for now, there is one less.

        • FLG says:

          This is what I wrote the morning after I learned of the Marriage Equality passing:
          June 25, 2011 at 11:22 am
          I would like to thank Lynn, Quincy and all of the posters who make this such a great place to be. I read the blog from time to time, long before I garnered up the courage to post on it. When I decided to join in, I made the conscious choice to not be closeted and let my gayness be known. I was unsure of the reception I would receive, but felt reasonably confident that I was in pretty safe territory here. You all have been gracious, supportive, friendly, respectful (even when we don’t agree) and welcoming. For this and so many other reasons too long to list, from the bottom of my heart I thank you.
          To New York State: I thank you for granting full marriage rights to your citizens. May the beacon you have illuminated spread across this land of ours, so that we ALL the people can participate fully and enjoy the liberties and responsibilities that citizenship grants and requires of us. Although I do not live in New York, your decision to uphold the ideal that ALL PEOPLE are created equal has warmed my heart and given me hope that the movement that began at the Stonewall Inn on June 28, 1969 has not ended and is now undergoing a new beginning. It was largely our Drag Queens who fought back. As a gay man I have never personally donned drag and as a sub group of my gay community you have often been treated poorly and unfairly. Today, what you began cements your now heroic place in history. I salute you! May you receive the respect of the gay community you have so richly earned. There is no place for bigotry especially against our own. I will remember
          yesterday as the day that this blog was lit upon fire (the good way) and some of my people became free at last. Perhaps one day I, too, will be a first class citizen in my own state and country. Let Freedom Ring! Rant over.

          • jeepers1941 says:

            FLG,
            Shoulder to shoulder we shall march together. Love, Peace and Indurance is just the beginning of hope for us all………..Jeepers

          • HD says:

            AMEN AND AMEN!!!

            What I noted in your comment, among many things, but what stood out to me on this blog pat was that you did not hide that you were gay. HALLELUJAH! I am of the mindset, who cares? I know a lot of people are not that way but I am. I know for a while a lot of people didn’t even know I was Black. What a a Black woman from the hood watching Real Housewives for? Honey, I have watched the show since Vicki had Laurie chained to her desk in her basement sellign insurance. Real Housewives just transcends everything doesn’t it? I know some people were probably shocked. But hey, that is the beauty of Lynn’s site, we meet so many people along the way of hating Jill! (Yes, I hate her and any opportunity I have to throw that into a convo, I will)!

            Love ya, FLG!! HUGS!

          • Amy Matheson says:

            (((xoxo)))

            cheers!

        • FLG says:

          Much of Marriage Equality has to do with other rights. Civil Unions don’t grant the same rights as Marriage. Hospital visitation, Healthcare, Social Security, Auto Insurance, Estate Planning,Inheritance…the list goes on and on. Marriage solves those issues, especially if and when it can be passed in all 50 states. I guess in some ways it’s like Bethenny says: “it’s never about what it’s about.” A gay couple can hire an attorney to come up with hundreds of documents of agreement and still not get everything covered.

          • Okie Folkie says:

            What you wrote was beautiful, FLG. I do hope ALL of our citizens soon may be FREE to marry whom they wish to marry. However, I believe your state will pass it long before my redneck state. I love my state, just hate the politics here.

            • FLG says:

              Okie, don’t forget I live in Flori-duh. They already passed the constitutional amendment here defining marriage as between one man and one woman. I’ll bet Oklahoma has done the same. I’m sure Sally Kern has seen to that.

          • Mookies1mom says:

            Exactly! And who else knows you better than your partner. Before Mookie’s dad I were married I was the longtime girlfriend. Even though we had credit cards in our name and all the other stuff. What brought him around to getting “that little piece of paper” is when he suffered chemical burns to his eyes. I drove him to the hospital and stayed with him. (Thankfully, he recovered without any lasting side effects.) But they could have easily said no you are not related to him and I wouldn’t have a choice. That “little piece of paper” makes a huge difference.

    • California35 says:

      Hi HD, I also just came in to say hi 🙂 too busy. I am with you…I don’t care if I miss the wives, but I don’t want to miss this blog 🙂 I hope I get to read whats going on tonight. Ciao!

        • HD says:

          It’s my girl Rabble Rouser!! Heyyyyyyyyyy!!!

          Hey California! I hear you! If I miss the show at this point I don’t even care. I know Lynn is gonna give us a blow by blow and highlight the good parts or the drama! Shoot I missed it and I ain’t even looking for reruns. It will just be more of does Teresa make up with her family, blah, blah, blah. Who cares?!

        • MAMAZ says:

          It wasn’t so very long ago that interacial marriage was illegal. It’s hard to even imagine now. In 50 years it will be the same with gay marriage. My grandchildren and their children will be like, “Whaaa???”

          • HD says:

            Girl I said the SAME THING! I said by the time my daughter is really grown this will be a non-factor. (Hopefully by the time she is grown. She is 15. I mean who really cares. Let people do what the hell they want. You want to get married, I mean who really cares or WHY do people care?) Whatever.

  59. AZ Girl says:

    If you get Ramonas newsletter check it out. She writes about lynn’s blog and how Jill deletes negative comments on FB and Twitter. Its great.

    • vilzvet says:

      So it looks like Ramona was not allowed to say the name.of this blog in her Bravo recap but anything goes in her own? Well, I’m sure as hell signing up for that! I think we’ll get lots more interesting stuff…

    • jeepers1941 says:

      AZ,
      I saw Ramona’s newsletter also, I don’t know if Lynn gets it or not, so I sent it to her via, her email. Ramona did a goood thing, I am proud of her for doing that. jz is a non issue for me now, she is not even a human being any longer.

      • AZ Girl says:

        Well done.. Thank you, Jeepers

        • jeepers1941 says:

          AZ,
          Oh believe me, it was my pleasure. I am so happy for Lynn and the attention she so richly deserves. This is a great place to come and speak(type) what is on our minds without all the BS from other posters getting on they’re high horses……… 🙂 And yes we agree to disagree, but hey that is why I come here, to read the other side of the story……… :-*

  60. Mookies1mom says:

    If anyone heard a really loud noise a little while ago it was me. The eye bleach finally succeeded in letting my eyes unroll from the back of my head. Whew! That was close. I was afraid they had become permanently stuck after watching Jersey Shore, um I mean the Jersey Housewives. Waaay TMI! Although I thought Jacq had some funny moments. Now I gotta go catch up on the comments.

  61. klmh says:

    If you haven’t had the opportunity to read Jay Moher’s take on last night’s N.J. episode, take a chance. Its just great and will make you lol!

    • Error404 says:

      Yuck. I see he hasn’t changed. It’s like ” I really hate to seem like I’m taking ter’s side, because i’m completely impartial, but did you see that cheap ugly dress Mel was wearing, and when ter brought up the plumber for no apparent reason, didn’t you just gasp at how stupid and ugly Mel is, I’m mean, even her imaginary voices use the f word….. Blah blah blah ” give it a rest jay.

      • klmh says:

        No Jay, I love it. Keep up the hilarious blog. Yea, thats the ticket, it will do as much good as your plea.
        Some people just have a knack for writing funny posts. Oh sorry, jmo…

      • Dee says:

        Yeah, Not liking Jay and his blogs. He is wayyyyy too anti Melissa and PO tree! BARF

    • Larke says:

      I haven’t read all of his blogs on Jersey and I don’t have anything against him otherwise, but his blogs are way off base to me. The only thing I really recall reading is him making low jabs at the women, except for Teresa. I just don’t enjoy him or his blogs.

      And, how can he make fun of any of the women? Have you seen his wife? Maybe some people think she is attractive, but she looks soooo plastic to me. Duck lips anyone? I try not to make personal attacks, but Mohr probably thinks he’s the man because he is married to her and I think she is ugly and over-inflated!!! He just does not do it for me, at all.

      • klmh says:

        I guess I look at it differently, as I do with others opinions here. I overlook many responses, but I just liked the way he described the situations and to me added some humor. I don’t agree with him, but simply enjoy his funny perspectives.

  62. kellynnola says:

    New at my interior design blog http://kellynnola.wordpress.com/ : Jennifer Lopez’s New Home plus OC Housewife Vicki G Cleans House.

    Coming soon are more Housewives/Celeb Homes. Any recommendations/requests please leave a reply here or on my site. Thanks!

    • Error404 says:

      J Lo’s house reminds me so much of what Billy Haines did for Crawford back in the 40s. All that blue! Thank god the photographer put those pink roses on the dining table, all of the blue china in the blue hutch in the blue dining room were making it seem like a dream sequence lol

      • kellynnola says:

        Yea I thought the blue was an overkill

        • MsJxn says:

          Kelly, love your blog!!! Can you please tell me where J’lo’s table and chairs are from,.the ones in the b’fast area…who the designer is,…or maybe where I could look for similar,…thanks so much,…S

          • kellynnola says:

            Absolutely-I’ll look for it and post back.

            • kellynnola says:

              MsJxn- Michelle Workman is the designer. Her firm is in LA and I’ve seen her at a few design conventions and she is very talented. Her site is http://www.michelleworkman.com/ . If you email or call her office I’m sure an assistant would be glad to help.

              The black & white pedestal table is a hard find but the white upholstered chairs can be easily found on a furniture site or ebay for a cheap price. I’ll keep looking and keep you posted.

              • MsJxn says:

                Thank’s so much!! Looking for the black/white table,…love it!! Reverse my name and you will see we are neighbors!! Thanks for any help you can give me, and I’ll take your link to any sites I visit! You are a treasure, love your site, as I said, and may even call upon you personally to help me with my house. Thank you again Dahhhhhhling,…LOL!!!!

    • boston02127 says:

      After reading the posts about the blue I didn’t think I’d like it when I looked. I do like it thou, it’s an icey gray blue. I think it’s pretty and calming.

    • klmh says:

      Thank you again for the pics. I love looking at others homes. The entryway is so unique and I love it. Its amazing to me that so many celebs have so much white in their homes. They have lots of help…

    • Adgirl says:

      Rob Shuter was at Jill’s bitchday on last weeks episode. So was Michael Musto of Village Voice. They are both gossip columnists that Jill “uses”.

      So that beg the question…. WTF are the Zarin’s doing complaining about Simon & Alex attending a fan party in Chicago w/ Lynn??

      …running in circles… pulling hair … circling … pulling …

  63. mamecastle says:

    Just saw this on twitter… What’s this all about?

    AveryNYC Avery
    @
    @Frostedyummies Really ChiTown! I am waiting for that Zephyr to get what she deserves. Lynnnchicago needs to be neutured. Politely!

    • AZ Girl says:

      I saw on Simon’s twitter that this AveryNYC was giving him a hard time. I am not on twitter so I am not sure.

      • mamecastle says:

        She is brutal. Twitter is scaring me today.

        • kellynnola says:

          It’s just wrong that Simon is getting shit for nothing.

          • mamecastle says:

            Um, what does Zephyr mean? Is it a regional thing or an insult? Sorry if this is a stupid question.

            • mamecastle says:

              Nevermind! Just saw in urbandictionary.com that it means cancer. Jeez!

            • Jezzibel says:

              I checked out her twitter profile……well…she is entitled to her many and varied opinions. whatever her problem with Lynn is…it seems to be a one-sided kind of problem.

              I thought Zephyrs were in the lower hierarchy(sp) of Angels, but I could be wrong

              • LOLing says:

                It’s also a blimp.

                • Jezzibel says:

                  with our new found fame we should get a IHJZ zeplin..that would be AWESOME

                  • mamecastle says:

                    Yes! So cool, with one of those electric tickers running all of Shrill’s nasty insults constantly on the side… “Why is she here socializing above her station? …We are DONE!… I have no idea who Susan saunders is…”

            • FLG says:

              I think she means it as “windbag”. That Avery claims she is a Harvard Business School grad. She is mean. Simon is trying to get people to unfollow Tweet Maxine.

              • She was also sure to tell me that the picture in her profile was “really” her, as if I were in owe of such beauty and thought I was looking at Christie Brinkley. Granted, if that’s her she isn’t bad looking but really get over herself girl.

                I think she can also put her ‘big girl panties” on “all by herself”

        • She was tweeting me non stop comparing this blog to Mein Kempf . If you click on my name, you can see all her tweets to me.

          • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

            Really? How in the hell does she make that comparison? Hitler’s memoirs of being a political prisoner applies how? I do not twitter. You must ask her. This should be fascinating. (insert dripping sarcasm for the last sentence.)

            • IDK, she then said it was like the Taliban or the KKK. I think she need a Xanax or something. If you lick on my name, and look at my mentions you should be able to see her tweets to me.

              • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

                Rabble, I love you dearly, but I will not today, tomorrow or EVER Lick your name. ROFLMAO. Sorry—but that was hysterical! Linking now.

              • Nancy says:

                RR,
                Why are you getting targeted?

                • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

                  if they know Rabble comes to the blog, they attack on the twitter thingie. Anyone who gets found out or follows Lynn on twitter is fair game to these types. And Rabble is one of the original members of our little “cult”, here so they would go after her to try and get a reaction. Think trolls on acid. Twitter is a world all it’s own.

                • She is under some impression I accused her of being Jill Zarin-which I didn’t. But I think she notice me because someone was bothering Lynn and I jumped in.

              • Error404 says:

                Are you sure it wasnt us talking about Taliban Jim or kkk (krazy Kelly killoren)?

    • FLG says:

      I looked at it and want to make sure everybody knows it’s not Ramona’s daughter Avery.

  64. boston02127 says:

    What ever happen to the RHONY being a great platform to allow Kelly to be more charitable?

    • Jezzibel says:

      isn’t she using RHNY as a platform to throw pens at school children?

      • mamecastle says:

        Nobody, and I mean absolutely nobody, can be charitable without a reliable pen.

        • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

          Or a cheap Penis ring. You gotta have a good pen and a penis ring. Then you can be really authentic and charitable.

          • MAMAZ says:

            LMAO

            • Kerry Okie says:

              Me too. I came here because of Susan Saunders, but I stay because of the snark.

              • Jezzibel says:

                its the Duchess she brings the humor and the vibrating penis rings…the rest of us bring the booze and popcorn

                • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

                  Well, what do you carry in your purse? All I need to get through my day is my Chanel lipstick, a good pen and a handy dandy Penis ring. Good to go. 🙂

    • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

      Well,she just made sure that the starving kids in Africa all got a pen. Or something like that.

      • Jezzibel says:

        So she gave the kids in the Bronx a well…or something like that

        • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

          and a goat. a well and a goat. and a copy of Jill’s moldy book for all the girls so they can learn how to “marry up” and out of poverty. Man, that Kelly. She sure is a really really smart girl.

          • MAMAZ says:

            She just gives and gives and ……

          • Jezzibel says:

            and amazingly generous…did’nt I read somewhere she was going to teach kids how to make a hubcap necklace out to Luanns unsold cds

            • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

              and toilet paper out of the unsold copies of Crass with the Countless. Dang, she is generous, and authentic AND she recycles?

              • Jezzibel says:

                I know her skill at recycling leftover pigeon feathers for jewellry….I can’t wait to see her amazingly authentic fall jewellry line, where she will no doubt make use of live pigeons

                • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

                  As long as it aint Bar-B-Qued Lamb skulls I am okay with that. Or pigs eyes. Yeah. That would be not so good. She could lose points for that.

                  • Jezzibel says:

                    ROTFLMAO…i just had a mental image of her running down madison ave with a lamb skull on her head

                    • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

                      Well, PETA never SAID you don’t wear Lamb Skulls made into ball caps. They just said don’t be mean to the lambs. It’s all good with jellybeans and lollipops for Kelly. Besides, she could get Cindy to bedazzle the damn thing for her so it would be really really purrrrty.

        You need to stop picking your lint from your dryer and have some fun.

        • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

          Actually, if you are feeling a bit adventurous, the spin cycle can be a fun addition to any marital relationship! And I stand by my statement. SOME of our housewives seem to be so OVER sexed that normal batteries will not do. Maybe a lightening rod, connector cables and a hell of a thunderstorm. But double AA’s are not gonna get it.

          • Jezzibel says:

            powered by a wind turbine might be a little more practical

            • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

              Now THAT is GENIUS. Wind Turbine industrial versions for oversexed Bravo stars. It is simple, effective and it even helps the economy by creating green energy jobs. Oh, man. This is it, AdGirl, get on it! This is your area girl—market market market.

          • Nancy says:

            OK I have a confession to make. I told people I have a pacemaker because something was wrong with my heart but the truth is this…I use my battery for “other” reasons.
            Everyone wants to know why I have a smile on my face 24/7. Well now you know. 🙂

            • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

                • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

                  As I just so happen to love overly large creatures with short arms, your name admits you to the party! Also, you have cracked me up as well. so welcome. welcome, welcome, welcome. Laundry is the past time of the Gods, you know.

      Crap! Self did not take note and now there is a beach towel at the ready reading this blog tonight! Dagnabit, well at least the puter is cleaner than the Joy Toys! HA!

  72. OneMoreInBoston says:

    ahhh…sweet trollies how I’ve missed you.

  73. OneMoreInBoston says:

    Funny how Lynn is exhorted to have shame over this blog-which is really nothing more than some peeps shooting the proverbial sh*t, but no trollies worried about Bravo putting sex toys on TV?

    tsk tsk- Set priorities for the Karma ass biting please.

  74. LOLing says:

    I can’t believe it! Miracles happen! I think Lynn and I saw the same show last night! She even gave Teresa a teeny tiny prop. Fame must be softening you. LOL. 🙂 But, if I may give the famous blogger a teeeny piece of advice…..don’t say “I told you” anymore! It sounds waaaay to o much like the Internets craziest human being, Bravo Maxines “Toldja!” Do you really want people to mix you up? Or God forbid think you ARE BM? Just trying to help. Ain’t I nice? 🙂

    So, NJ has joined the “lets scare viewers w/ sexy time” parade. Please stop. Because you KNOW darn well now Atlanta has to have sexy time and so will BH. Although, to be honest, I wouldn’t mind seeing Kyles husband naked. He’s hot! But, with my luck it will be Taylor and her hubby. Larry? Bob? What’s his name? So, please Bravo, after everyone has a sexy time turn, please make it stop. Thanks to Teresa showing off Joe’s c%&^ ring, I will never be able to look at him again. Same thing happened when Chris Meloni from L&O SVU went full frontal in Oz….I can’t look at Stabler w/out picturing his penis. Which, for the record, was a nice piece of sausage.

    I am like Caroline, I see danger eveywhere, but could you emasculate you 20 something kids on TV anymore? Geez. She would probably let Lauren ride it. In fact she’d probably put a rock in her path and “hope for the best”. Be nicer to Lauren, she’s your ticket to Grandkids! I do believe we are watching Dolores’ “try out” for next season. I like the “NJ Faye Resnick”. Let’s all join Team Dolores! I am not sure what Bravo was trying to say, but the Catskills are not Mars. They have running water, toilets and (wait for it) TV THERE! So the whole fish out water, I hear banjos, city folk in the woods thing was dumb. Totally anticipated, but dumb. There was a squealing pig though. And I mean they one they had for dinner, not a HW.

    Good luck opening a restaurant Kathy. Because they never fail. Don’t listen to Moe Green, just have a little side baking business and you’ll do fine. I loved Albert Manzo laughing at the thought in the previews!

    Onto the dance show. What the HELL was that? Antonia Gorga is a beautiful little girl, but I’m sorry, why does she go to the Molester Mambo Instuitute of Perv? That was horrible, awful and I REALLY hope next year they enroll her in Gias dance school form S1, where they have cute little show. Unless Teresa won’t let her…that was just BAD!

    Now, the big news…..the war. Not the one in Iraq, but the one in NJ. I am officially bored with this war. If they were fighting about something INTERESTING, then I would care. If every episode was as riveting as the Christening, it would be awesome. I want incest, spouse swapping, paternity tests…like a NJ verion of Maurey. Not tit for tat about cards, photographers, plumbing bills, home loans and phone calls.

    Melissa Gorga came on and truly believed she’d be the breakout star. She miscalculated the fact that the fans have eyes and ears and are onto her game. Teresa is trying, but she’s just as bad w/ the tit for tat. There will be no winners here. Especially b/c this war is what keeps them on the show. They don’t have any vested interest in ending it, Melissa in particular! Melissa can’t go back and unfilm the season, so she will just have to live w/ the backlash. Teresa is garnering a lot of sympathy not just b/c of Melissa, but b/c of her situation w/ money and Joe. People appreciate that she is trying to hold it together. Plus, most fans (not all, but most) are savvy enough at this point to know that a lot of what they “appear” to have on the show is not real.

    I can only imagine, when the season started and Melissa wasn’t getting the love she deserved, her bitterness at Teresa just got worse. She is probably fuming and denying Joey sex all over the place. She’s still angry in her blogs and interviews. Now, there are a lot more eps to go, including Drunks in Dominica AKA Punches in Punta Cana, so Teresa could go all, well, Teresa again. Melissa may have her moment, but I’m not sure. I think this thing is still raging. Hurry up Dolores…save us all!

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      But, if I may give the little nobody of a poster a teeeny piece of advice…..don’t write long speeches like you’re a bad applicant at the stand up comedian interview. It sounds waaaay to o much like the Internets craziest human beings, The IHJZ trolls. Do you really want people to mix you up? Or God forbid think you ARE an IHJZ troll? Just trying to help. Ain’t I nice?

    • nathania says:

      just a few thoughts.

      Gia did the bump and grind last season too so she goes to the same school of vulgar dances for little girls.

      People don’t feel for Teresa still driving a Mercedes SUV wearing fur on every part of her body, and vacationing in Mexico, etc etc. It’s more clear than ever the bankruptcy was just a scam to get them out of debt they did not want to pay, blah blah blah, someone has come to Joe Giudice’s rescue, probably Teresa’s Dad. NOTHING about their lifestyle has changed after foisting eleven million dollars in unpaid bills onto the backs of the taxpayers.

      This adolescent passionate hatred for Melissa that defies all logic and reason is just so, well, boring.

      I don’t think it bothers Melissa, though, after all, her sister in law is Teresa Guidice, so she is used to dealing with immaturity and dramatics.

    I guess there is just no use in pointing out to these “rocket scientists” that being nasty and hateful to make a point about how wrong it is to have a “hate” (it just cracks me up every time I hear this blog called that) blog is just …….sigh. no. no point at all.
    These are the kind of people that beat the hell out of their kids, while screaming “YOU DON”T HIT YOUR SISTER! HITTING IS WRONG!”

        I was reading the Gawker recap, hilarious BTW, and the comments are viscious. They are tearing NJ apart. But the other day they were saying how creepy we are over here, lol.

  76. Kats2 says:

    I’m pretty sure the trolls are made up of the following:
    A. Jealous bloggers
    B. Zarin family members
    C. People on Bobby’s Payroll

    • Jezzibel says:

      D. disgruntled former commentors who left in a huff because Lynn would’nt kowtow to their demands, so they banded together on twitter to bitch about Lynn and cause made up drama between her followers on twitter

    • Karmasweetkarma says:

      yep, you’re so smart, how did u guess?! *rolls eyes with sarcasm*
      and i guess the lovers of this blog are made of:
      a) people who are too ugly to get laid
      b) people who are going straight to hell
      c) people who are so stupid they make paris hilton look like einstein
      Bring it you fat bitches

      • Jezzibel says:

        quick question…why do trolls always lead with the fat/ugly/ stupid line of offense? Seriously its kind of antiquated as far as insults go

        • Error404 says:

          I know! The whole ” you’re a bunch of fat spinster cat ladies with no life” argument is soooooooo 1998! Meanwhile, who’s wasting their time trolling. Lol

            • MAMAZ says:

              Because they can’t think of anything worse than being overweight and unattractive.

        Oh, and I’m really skinny. In fact, I have been thin my whole life.
        i’m a lover of this blog so I guess I refuted all your claims as to the people who read this blog. As for you, the only person here spewing hate is–quite frankly–you.

    • nathania says:

      bobby’s payroll is a lot bigger than I thought it was.

      I didn’t know he was spending 350 grand on jewels for that evil witch. think how many children that money could feed.

      I now believe without question that not only are the united by one freaky fetish but that she has him on video and it’s in a vault in switzerland, etc, she has him by the short hairs, which is how she gets him to go on tv and smear an innocent man with an insinuation of anti-semitism.

      Jill, if you are reading this GET IT STRAIGHT. It’s not a religion or ethnic group people hate it’s YOU, JILL ZARIN, SPECIFICALLY. No one else, just YOU.

    I was going to call Johnny Weir to remind him it’s un-follow Jill Zarin day coming up

What does posting comments good, bad or down right vicious (which I’m guilty of all) about a reality show and the vile people on that reality show have to do with anyone’s Karma or anything for that matter? A troll came here to do some spy work? Um OK, did you get enough proof that we don’t like Jill? Is this the best Bobby’s money can buy? That is the strangest thing I have ever read, I’d laugh but I think that troll actually thinks they can get someone in trouble because they don’t like a blog or blog comments. Is this still America?

    hey does anyone know if Bawby is still alive? Has Shill’s head exploded yet? I have to think there is someone’s brain matter (if they have a brain) all over those apartment walls since Bawby outed this blog on last week’s episode. Did he not think that by confronting Simon about it, that would only bring it out into the public eye even more? Oh the irony!!!!

    • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

      Supposedly he is getting his own twitter account. There is no real proof that it is him twatting, however. An alternative theory has presented itself that the account is really another promotional tool run by the flying monkies to promote moldy books and overpriced underwear (or is that the other way around?)

      • Amy Matheson says:

        That’s kind of stupid of Bethenney to weigh in on gossip from an inside source that most are well aware is Jill Zarin/Jill Zarin’s Minion, especially when Alex and Simon denied it as an unconfirmed rumor.

        I think as soon as that wedding episode was done, B. was pretty much done with Alex and Ramoner too.

        • TLM says:

          I sort of feel that way, too, that the reality is B doesn’t have much to do with Alex or Ramona anymore. They appeared on her birthday episode, and Ramona had one appearance to see the baby and Silex were in Season 1 at her housewarming party, but that’s it. Ramona actually said she thought RH would be better this season because Bethenny wasn’t there and that she had made the show “dark.” I couldn’t believe how Ramona could stab her in the back, much less that she could even insinuate B made the show dark last season when Kookadoodle-doo had a psychotic break on the show and Jill grew fangs and a forked tongue. Bethenny was engaged to the love of her life and a new baby on the way. I don’t think Bethenny will ever badmouth Ramonacoaster or Silex, but I think she has quietly distanced herself.

    Battery discussion (cont.) the energetic & sexed up Bravo folks …

    OPEC is shivering in their sandals. No need for us to buy any more oil ar burn anymore dirty coal. We have nuclear level heat radiating straight from our Bravo HD channel.

    The Gooeyjuicys can power the eastern seaboard and Tamra and Eddie will take of SoCal.
    We’ll have to see about ATL. NeNe was stripper but she don’t like doing the dirty. Kim Z could usually be counted on but Kory’s probably running fast from post partum sexy time with wig head.

    Totally OFF TOPIC:

    I have a need to share this.
    I received the draft for my husband’s grave stone.
    I was very concerned because the trustees have to approve the engravings. I went a little off the board. They have so many restrictions. But they came through an authorized what I wanted. There is a lot to it, however there is a piece I chose that was my biggest hurdle.
    It’s a line from St. Vincent Millay’s, “To a young poet”. I thought it fit my Eddie.
    …No bird that ever flew.
    ..Not the lark not you.
    ..Will die as others do.
    I’m so happy they approved. My step son called tonight, (he’s very sweet) and I told him I was able to get what I wanted. And he said. ..don’t tell me, I want to see it when it’s placed.

    I know it sounds frilly, but the backhoe and dump truck should take the edge off.

    • Error404 says:

      I like it!

          Thank you so much, Error, Boston, Mamaz, Kats2 and VA Girl. It’s all I can think about today. And I’m sure my step children and grandchildren will like it. I was so stressed they wouldn’t go for it.
          I used to read a lot of Millay’s works to him when he was sick. It’s a little “thing” we had.

          • butterisafruit says:

            Nancy, yes I’m doing well. Much more now. This was a worry. However now I’m Knitting chemo caps for the visiting nurses. It’s a huge help more for me than them.

            • Nancy says:

              How nice it is of you to knit your “chemo caps”.

        • FlowerPower says:

          I spoke at my high school graduation many many moons ago and used a couple lines from one of my fav Millay poems:

          My heart is warm with the friends I make,
          And better friends I’ll not be knowing;
          Yet there isn’t a train I wouldn’t take,

      Why does that sort of thing continue to surprise me?

    • Adgirl says:

      It’s almost as funny as Rabble Rouser’s twitter troll who claimed she was a Harvard Business School Grad, but is apparently unemployed and addicted to comparing this blog to Mein Kempf .

      • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

        The only thing I can think of there is that the idiot is trying to take a back door route to calling Lynn an anti-semite. I guess because Jill is Jewish? Mein Kampf is Hitler’s version of why he was in prison for political crimes when he was young. (at least he called them political crimes) He does talk about Communism and Judaism being the two great evils of the world. Wait, maybe the troll is trying to say Lynn is a communist? I don’t know. It really does not apply to any situation regarding a blog and a housewives show that I can see—-but I did not go to Harvard, and so am obviously not in the same league as our trolling friend on twitter.

        • MAMAZ says:

          Comparing people you don’t like to Hitler is almost obligatory these days.
          If I were Jewish I would be furious at anyone other than genocidal maniacs being likened to Hitler. In fact I consider it anti semetic to compare a blogger, no matter how offensive you might find her musings, to the man responsible for the death of 6 million human beings!

        • T-Rex says:

          What is so interesting there are a number of us folks here that happen to be Jewish, like myself, we do not think or give creedence to the whole Lynn hates jews crap. Oh and Jews are not communist! That was the whole meaning behind the Mcarthy hearings on 1950’s. Jews are no different from Christians, they run the gamut of political affiliations, I don’t understand the commie thing.

          • MichellefromNY says:

            I’m a proud Jew, and what Jill does makes me so mad. She is the epitome of what we call “chillul Hashem”–literally translated bad for The name. In other words, doing things that make the Jews look bad to the rest of the world. It’s actions like hers that encourages anti-semites. WE are not anti-semitic. We are all merely calling her out for being a hateful human being regardless of faith. But for other Jews on this blog–like me–it’s a little more personal because she’s a T.V representation of our faith. Her distortions of Judaism and perpetuating Jewish stereotypes is disgusting to me. If anything, Shrill is anti-semitic because she has completely turned her back on her faith and exploits it for her own purposes.

            • Nancy says:

              Very well said. The “funny” thing is
              Jill doesn’t have a clue why her “book”
              didn’t sell. I didn’t go to Harvard either
              but I can figure this one out.
              Jill, call me we can have lunch.

    AHA!!! I’ve been sitting here watching the RHoNJ marathon and waiting for them to get to the part where Tree, Joe and Co. arrive at the house upstate. I wasn’t entirely 100% sure, but last night I could have sworn I heard something odd; something that made me wonder if Juicy’s father might not be an alumnus of the same college that Bullwinkle J. Moose attended. OK, so tonight I turned up the volume up and heard it again. It was clear as a a bell. When Tree and Juicy walk in the door, Mr. Giudice Senior says, “Wossamotta U”. I still remember from my early education that Bullwinkle himself had been a big gridiron star back at Wossamotta U. Maybe he and Juicy Senior even pledged the same frat. I Eta Pi maybe?

    Ok now Bravo is facing a 40 million dollars in FCC fines for last nights show. Just read it

  88. Dee says:

    http://stoopidhousewives.com/2011/06/27/real-housewives-of-new-jersey-bravo-gets-largest-fine-in-broadcast-history-from-fcc/

    47 million. Largest fines imposed. 6 entities being sued, including:

    Bravo
    NBC
    Andy Cohen
    Joe Guidice
    Theresa Guidice

    For the cocr ring part, the discussion of how gives better blow jobs, etc

    • MAMAZ says:

      Really? As much as I didn’t enjoy the sexcapades last night I can’t understand fining them.

      • ITA. But the whole system confuses me anyway – some words are fine-able and (IMO) worse words are permitted. At any rate, as much as it offended my delicate sensibilities (HA!), I don’t think it warranted a fine. It isn’t a standard channel at 7pm!

    • dsc60 says:

      how can the sue the Guidices? they don’t edit the show now do they? oh well… maybe they can add it to their bankruptcy

      • Dee says:

        Last night’s airing of the Real Housewives of New Jersey led to the FCC fining Bravo the largest fine in the history of television and the FCC.

        All tallied, the fine amounted to $47 million… split between

        Bravo
        NBC Universal
        Comcast
        Andy Cohen, personal suit
        Teresa Giudice
        Joe Giudice

        The reason for the fine? It was the tone of last night’s subjects on RHONJ. Andy Cohen, producer of RHONJ, was held responsible and fined for making the final decision on what airs. In particular, Tree Joodice bringing up sexual content at the cabin in the Catskills. The letter to Comcast/NBC Universal from the FCC focused on Tree and Joe’s conversation regarding who is best at what and CameraTree speaking about a sex toy.

        The majority of the fine ($35 million) was because of this:

      I am watching the rerun right now and can’t find anything on google except that blog with no links.

      I may be wrong, but I am going on record as saying I don’t believe this without some valid link.

      I am also going on record as saying that I would like to personally fine Bravo $150 million for making me that aware of Juicy Joe’s penis. *shudder*

      • Adgirl says:

        The FCC is going after a cable show? I am skeptical. And even though it was gross I’ve seen more specific material on Oprah. Even ATL Kandi’s remarks were more graphic.

        • Dee says:

          Yeah I just picked this up on a blog so I am not sure. would love to know if it is true or not. Some of it is out of control…they need to reign these women and men in. Their escapades exceed what we really want to watch.

          • Amy Matheson says:

            I have to say I was pretty skeeved out (oh btw Jill, see why Skweeze is a bad brand name… too many other words sounds like it – but back to my point. b

            But fellow citizens, there is a little thing in our Bill of Rights called freedom of speech – even if it’s totally gross. There is also probably something about freedom of assembly that applies … ok, I don’t know – don’t ask me I’m not Thomas Jefferson.

            Based on all the MTV Real World/Jersey Shore sex out there, I think the whole show last night – although SKWEEZY… oops, I mean skeevy… and uncleansy, it is not outside of the realm of what has already been deemed acceptable on TV for me to mock.

            I am totally in favor of duct taping their mouths shut though – any freedoms that prevent that be damned. I mean darned.

            • Amy Matheson says:

              sorry for all those random lone letters that keep appearing in my post.

              I blame my fingers.

    • klmh says:

      Poor Stoopid. Guess she forgot to check her story. Ah.

    • LOLing says:

      I call BS too. One, there are no links. Two, the FCC doesn’t fine individuals like Joe, Teresa and Andy Cohen. Three, Bravo is part of NBC so they don’t fine them both, just NBC (which is part of Comcast now). Four, the CBS Super Bowl fine wasn’t even CLOSE to this number, so I am sure Bravo, a minor cable station, airing a show at 10pm to maybe 2-3 million isn’t going to get hit that hard. And Janet Jackson & JT were not fined. JUST CBS. MTV who produced the show was banned from the superbowl halftime show forever. No fine. So, I mean, come on! 🙂

      Lastly, Networks already know the rules on what they can and cannot say. They already know how far to push things. Also, their are Censors within the Networks that vet every single show b/f it airs to make sure it complies. Andy Cohen does not override them.

      People make up the craziest stuff! I’m not sure what’s worse that people make this crazy stuff up or that people believe it so quickly! 🙂

  89. Nancy says:

    Lynn,
    I just got a great idea. (and I’m only half kidding)
    Why don’t “we” make a book out of all your Blogs and our post’s dating back to day one?
    Personally I would love that. I have no doubt that our core family here would want to read it but I bet other Housewives fans would read it too. But here is when it get’s better… You would have to take it on the road on a “I HATE JILL ZARIN” book tour. I’m sure Bethenny will lend us her bus and i”ll be more than happy to donate my time. I could be your “Julie” and my dog can be your “Cookie”. I think I’ll let you pick your “Jason”. I can start phoning Publishers in the morning.
    I’ll call Jill first because I’ve heard her publisher had to declare bankruptcy because one of his last client’s REALLY screwed him over about a book called “Mommies not happy” or something stupid like that so he really needs the money. I’ll get back to you asap.

    • Amy Matheson says:

      I think we should also cut a record!! Who’s in ladies????

      🙂 Book idea is good. I would buy.

      • Jezzibel says:

        forget the bus…..a IHJZ Zeplin/blimp/zephyer is the ultimate book tour mode of transportation…now that Lynn is famous maybe we can get a Zamboni as well

        • LOLing says:

          I am loving the blimp!

        • Nancy says:

          I have a BIG IN with the NHL. All I have to do is mention my father and they’ll give us our very own Zamboni. Lynn can keep it at her house in between city’s. Thanks that was a great idea. 🙂

    • FLG says:

      Can I be the personal chef?

    • FLG says:

      This is a great idea. Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City started from a newspaper columns he wrote.

        There you have it.
        Could you and your other 1/2 go to New York and get married?
        I know it wouldn’t be valid out side of NY but maybe it
        would make you guys feel better?

  90. T-Rex says:

    Just need to Vent! I am Jewish, I do not think for one minute that Lynn is in any way what so ever anti-semitic, period! I personally feel it is offensive for people to freely infer that she is anti-semetic, or freely use the word Nazi regarding her posts~ I read Lynn’s blogs on a regular basis as do many others, those that do not agree may use derrogatory terms, I won’t and it really peeves me when others do! Trust me if those of us who follow Judaism were offended by Lynn we would certainly have pointed this out before now~

    • Nancy says:

      T-Rex,
      This kind of “stuff” doesn’t bother Lynn at all.
      We know these troll’s are crazy so let them have their fun.

    • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

      I don’t know for sure that that is what the twitter troll is saying. I can only tell you what the book is about and that is why I am sooooo confused as to why the troll is tweeting to Rabble about any connection between the blog and the book. It just does not relate to each other. The book is Hitlers version of why he and some others went to jail after they tried to stage a revolution in Munich and some other areas of The Rhineland. It also outlines his political views (the basis for the formation of his NAZI party). Basically he felt that the Jewish and Communist principals were the great evils that would destroy the world. A blog about the housewives, even if it were the most foul and vicious blog on the planet simply does not relate to this thesis. It makes no sense. The only connection I can see is the fact that Hitler hates the jewish people and lynn calls her blog I hate Jill Zarin, who happens to be a jewish woman. But that is soooooo flimsy that I cannot fathom anyone attempting to make a connection on that level. I don’t have twitter so I can’t ask the troll about this, and I would do so to try and understand what she is trying to say. I guess the best way to leave it is to just say that if you are trying to insult someone and no one can make sense of your insult—–EPIC FAIL.

    • Jezzibel says:

      Scrolling up..I think the only thing that Lynn can be accused of is having commentors with a bawdy sense of humor how that equals Nazi-ism/KKK/Taliban I have no f***ing idea. The only thing I can surmsie is those alluding to that kind of accusation are people that are too young/unaware to comprehend that kind of evil.
      I’m of Scot/Irish ancestry and when I lived in Europe my mother made a side-trip to Dachau for those not in the know it was a concentration camp. I tend to think those that use the label of Nazi to someone they disagree with is out of sheer ignorance, who do not comprehend the level of atrocities commited against a people

      • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

        a bawdy sense of humor—-hey, I resemble that remark! You talking bout me Jezz? You talking bout me? BAWWWWWBBBBYYYYY—-I am being cyber bullied!!!!!!!! 🙂

        • Jezzibel says:

          mebbe…..I opened a bottle of homeade banana wine, so the fact I’m still here and upright is a good thing..I think..

          • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

            Did you ever read James Herriot’s books? He tells a story about drinking a farmer’s homemade wines, not realizing how much stronger it was than bottled for sale wine, and then having to go to a strict methodist family’s farm to help their cow deliver a calf. It is probably one of the funniest stories I have ever read.

            • Jezzibel says:

              I rmember watching All things Great and Small. I deliver for a fruit company occasionally…..so sometimes it means I come home with 40 to 50 pounds of good but unusable fruit..its just quicker and effective to turn it into wine. Some of it turns out stronger and sometimes not…but it sure as hell doesn’t smell like rotten eggs or moldy gym socks

              Vet that lives in British Columbia and he gave them to me one Christmas.
              Maybe it’s time for me to re-read them. 🙂

              Have you read “The Cat that went to Paris”?
              Highly recommend it.

              • Jezzibel says:

                I tend to fluctuate between Bernard Cornwall and Terry Pratchett that and griffiti written on the stalls in the ladies room. I did pick up a bunch of Laura Roh Rowlands inspector Sano series at a library book sale, I liked her attention to detail.
                The Cat that went to Paris….I’ll add it to my list of books to read

              • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

                No, but I will put it on my list. Thanks! Herriot is one of the few authors that literally made me laugh out loud. The story of Tristan and the farting boxer, or the cat that got out of it’s carrier in the car, so many of them just cracked me up, but my absolute favorite was the farmer with the homemade wine. Just a riot.

    • nathania says:

      my instinct when bobby said that was he set it up that way.

      he said ‘hate blog’ for a damn reason. he MEANT to imply it was anti-semitic.
      AND he meant to imply that Simon was anti-semitic.

      It really is more than a bit sexist to think that anyone could be as oblivious to what a rotten human being Jill Zarin is, while being married to her. Men are not that stupid. He is just as evil as she is. This was a calculated smear, 100 percent, and BOBBY ZARIN did this, on camera, to an innocent man. Simon and Alex have been hurt enough by these human slimeballs. Anyone who can live with a disgusting witch like Jill and not divorce her is seriously morally compromised themselves. Like attracts like.

    I ordered a cross from Ramona’s True Faith Jewelry and when it was delivered today I got the wrong necklace.

I thought that was really nice and showed what a classy businesswoman she is.

    Well…I’m off to bed, I have to get up early because I’m going to Hawaii in the morning. My b/f asked me to marry him and gave me a 5 carat diamond with matching earrings. He had them hidden in a 2010 BMW. He said not to pack anything, he’ll buy me new cloths when we get there. We have to be up and out by 7 to be on the private plane.

    Opps….I had a Jill moment. I’m not going anywhere except to work & school and school & work and going to bed with the earache that I’ve had for 2 days now. It was an irritating pain, now it’s more of a shooting pain. On the bright side my b/f (thinking this is my problem) moved the fan that I have blowing on me 24/7 when I’m home. Maybe that will help. Such an exciting life.

  100. Havent watched anything yet
    we had a great day i NYC for pride
    everything went so smooth we Actually found parking directly in front of Cafeteria whic was where we planned on having brunch (so so goof i got the chicken and waffles Jimmy got the fish and chips and out friend Joe who drove in got a breakfast sandwhich that was almost the size of the plate)
    near the pridefest stage we saw Sahara Davenport (from RuPauls Drag Race) she looked better live then on tv

    pridefest was smaller this year it seems yet we got twice as much stuff as last year and there was even a ben and jerrys truck giving out cups of ice cream so you know i was in my glory
    stayed for about 5 hours then went to eat at an irish pub
    Jimmy & Joe both got shepeards pie and i got chicken pot pie soooooo good
    we got home about 8 pm and this is what i get home too My mom leaves this in teh mailbox a page out of the sunday paper talking about how one of the meds i take Crestor has KILLED people
    now if that isnt something that would spoil a day out i dont know what could
    perhaps having to spend time in Jills company MIGHT be worse but it would be a close second
    mind you i have been taking this med for 4 years now

    going to the doctor this morning for some blood work and to see what i should do about this
    others have said that if i have been taking this,that long with no adverse side effecrts i may be ok with it
    what really annoys me is all the things that are listed that this pill can cause are all things i already have so why the f would my original doc prescribe this for me

    • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

      So sorry DQ~hope everything is alright. Is there anything else you can take instead?

    • boston02127 says:

      DQ—Sounds like you had a great time. Shepards pie…yum.

      When my mom was sick the doctors tried so many diffrent meds on her before and during the time they found out she had PSP. You really have to read everything about what they are giving you. Esp side effects and how other meds mix with new ones. It’s almost as if we are guinea pigs to some doctors. While my mother was sick I really learned to speak up and ask questions and write everything down.

      • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

        Hi Boston~
        I always read online everything I can if a dr. gives me something I never heard of. My hubby was given something once that almost caused him to have a stroke & since then we don’t take any chances.

    I honestly think Mob Wives is way more interesting than any of the HW’s shows. If NY and OC were cancelled, I would not care! The Mob Wives seem more real. They aren’t pretending they are rich. They actually stay home and show them cleaning and taking care of their kids more than any “real” housewife. This is why I love Bethenny’s show also. She is a real housewife. It shows her cleaning out her closets, fridge…and taking care of her baby and husband…and business. That is what I like to see. Not commercials for their books, clothes, and wine they are trying to sell.

    Yeah. You told us so…Great recap & since I haven’t watched it yet I’ll definitely fast forward when I think I’m getting to parts I don’t have to unsee or unforget later!!!!

  107. Thanks guys it went ok i wont know the results till friday
    and regarding the Crestor my doctor just told me to stop taking it if i was worried about it
    he seemed kind of pissed that i would even ask
    he said i didnt have to be weened off it so thats good
    im sure it really wasnt gonna affect me after 4 years and my test always come up good but who wants to take a chance

    You guys are really the best sometimes i feel i get more support here then from friends in real life 🙂

    I keep meaning to tell Michelle Visage about this blog but keep forgetting i know she watches NJ
