I Hate Jill Zarin Million Dollar Decorator / More Housewives News

I Hate Jill Zarin   Million Dollar Decorator by Quincy IL

Kathryn Ireland knows was what is best and so does Shannon Factor her client. That is a major problem.  Shannon’s Malibu Tuscan Beach house is no more. It has been gutted and is in the process of becoming more than Kathryn expected for the one million dollar budget.  In 6 to 8 weeks, Shannon expected the Taj Majhal of Malibu and Kathryn thought it was a quick fix with new draped and a couple of throw pillows.   Shannon wants an extension on the beach side of the house with large sliding glass doors.  Kathryn knows it is impossible to do all of this in the time frame and on budget.

Martyn Lawrence Bullard is going to have another wild day as he visits the home of Daisy Fuentes, a Latina from MTV who is line licensing deals in the fashion industry and has a modern new home with very tall cement walls. Marty has contracted to design the living space of Daisy’s home with the hope that he will do more rooms in the future. 

Martyn asked Daisy for a photo from Cuba and she offered an incredible photograph of two chairs against a decaying wall. It’s in sepia and will fit her color scheme.

Jeffrey and his band of merry assistants have gone to a restaurant space that has a lot of dark wood which no one likes. This place will be gutted according to Jeffrey, but Ross his assistant is a concerned about the budget and Jeffrey’s ability to collect his many ideas and create a cohesive design. When Jeffrey states that this restaurant will be “St. Barths meets Montauk meets Laguna Beach, we feel for Ross.

The time frame for the restaurant renovation is 10 weeks.  Ross begins to paint grays on the wall and everyone watches. He talks about blocking part of the room in this color and the other part in another color and Jeffrey does not understand what Ross is talking about.  These two men play a game with each other each week. Ross takes a rope and pulls while Jeffry pulls back. Jeffrey asks Ross what restaurants has he designed and Ross is hurt.  Jeffrey is making a mistake on national TV.

Martyn goes to Stage 23 of a motion picture studio to have a huge canvas created with the image given to him by Daisy.  He takes a tour of the facilities and talks to two men who make his concept come to life. The photo needs to be clear even though it is to be enlarged.

Nathan Turner has more than one woman friend. He pals around with Mary McDonald on shopping trips in LA, but it seems he has been unfaithful with Susan. Nathan and Susan from “One King Lane” went to India on a shopping trip and had a wonderful time. The items are on a slow boat, but Nathan and Susan share their trip by having a huge party with an India theme. They will have the colors of India and marigold flower garlands with paper plates because Nathan spent all of his money on the rental of an elephant. They laugh. I think it’s a joke.

Kathryn visits Shannon’s Malibu beach house to find the Shannon has taken over the project and is directing Kathryn’s team. Kathryn tells them to make sure that they go through her and it’s a problem that Shannon is constantly coming up with new ideas and is not following Kathryn’s game plan. Carol the design coordinator shares that Shannon’s brother in law in now in the mix and he has rough drawings of the beach side of the house. No one has filed for permits and time is running out. The drawings are not OK for the city and they need things done yesterday.

Martyn goes to a store called, “Interior Allusions.”  He buys a large mural of mirrors for $15,000. He buys round chairs that could be moved to the grand piano alcove and back to the living space. Everything has to be modern, but comfortable.  Martyn later goes to “The Rug Company” where he lies on a soft carpet that is tan on almost white with circles. I feel a theme coming on.

Jeffrey is in the restaurant making drawings when Ross wants to discuss the lighting situation. He has priced table lamps. Jeffrey is horrified.   He wants floor lamps.  It seems these two have been bickering over this for a while and Jeffrey had discussed the design of the couch with Ross in the past. Ross wants definitive answers. Jeffrey shared that the design is done and in his head, but he just doesn’t want to share.

At home, the bickering partners, Jeffrey and Ross continue to bring work home. Jeffrey goes to the butler’s pantry to hide with his old white Labrador. She enjoys the snack.

Katherine is at home and she called her French cook, Jacqueline to help her dress. Kathryn decides to dress as Inspector Clouseau for a meeting with Shannon at the beach house.  She wears large diamonds because she thinks Shannon considers her one of the staff.

Mary has the room from Cuba canvas glued to the wall. It’s a risk. Like everything Martyn does” this mural is amazing, sexy, and sophisticated.” Martyn loves adjectives. Martyn’s rug and furniture arrives and he finished the room with flowers. It’s ready for the client.

Shannon thinks that Kathryn is running a circus and she is visible frustrated in front of the camera. Shannon states that without her nothing happened. Kathryn disputes that.  Kathryn takes charge and Shannon is out voted. Cindy, an architect will arrive in 1 ½ hours to rescue the project. Kathryn insists and Shannon is miffed.  Shannon still wants to tear down bearing walls and have sliding glass doors on parallel tracks.  Kathryn is going to show Shannon what “take charge” really means.

Daisy Fuentes takes a walking tour of her own living room and she borrows some of Martyn’s adjectives. She says the room is amazing and agrees that it is perfect. Martyn hits the jackpot and he is going to design more rooms for Daisy.

Nathan and his black Labrador are getting ready for an outdoor party to celebrate all things India and a sale of his items being shipped to LA for eBay.

Mary McDonald shows up to get licked by a dog which reminds her of a really bad date.  She is dressed in a blue sari and has her hair pulled back.  Mary rearranges the pillows that Nathan had tossed to the ground for guests to sit on. Mary is stress that Nathan did not arrange them properly.

Cindy, the architect ,meets with Mary and she has the drawings that have been checked by the engineer and are ready for the city permit process. Kathryn is over joyed. Cindy would like Kathryn to do her thing at Cindy’s house.

Jeffrey flirts with a dark haired man on camera and says he is looking for an intern. The man picks up on the flirtation and seems to respond.

Later, Jeffrey is tired and he remembered that he is on a reality show so Ross is going to see what he did. Jeffrey decides to take a bath without bubbles and Ross does too. They just talk.  For good measure, Jeffrey will not have sconces at the restaurant instead of floor lamps or table lamps. Ross knows Jeffrey will go back and forth.  Ross takes his finger to his own head and makes the sound of a gun firing.

Thanks Quincy, great job as always!  I’m so glad you’re back safe and sound!

Housewives News by LynnNChicago

Honestly wanted to go one day without mentioning Jill Zarin but then she goes and posts this on Twitter:

Jillzarin  When I get to 200k followers…lets have a USTREAM party! What do you think?? 

What do we think?  Are you serious?  This woman blocks people at the drop of a hat AND we have an upcoming National Unfollow Jill Zarin day on June 30, 2011.  I’m sure she’s thinking what we’re all thinking, anyone who would unfollow her is already blocked for following “haters”.  Believe it or not I’m not the only one on Twitter who hates Jill Zarin, there are many! 🙂  The other “Haters” are also getting the same treatment on Twitter from Jill.  If you follow them, Jill will block you.  I wonder if Jill has Bethenny blocked?  Somehow I doubt it.  I think she checks Bethenny’s twitter every day to see if Bethenny has decided to forgive her and is suddenly following her.

Jill Zarin Twitter Watch:  157,423 followers as of today

I’m glad Jill has a cyber assistant, and to keep them going with a full time salary Jill has them creating fake Twitter names just to say nasty things to me, I love Twitter’s “Block” feature!  Luckily over on Twitter there are ten nice things being said about the blog to every one nasty thing.  Thanks and Welcome to all my new Twitter followers, I hope you’ll all enjoy the comments on the blog and even join in!

Reality Tea wrote about the upcoming episode of The Real Housewives of New York and the blog fiasco.  The writer over at RT did a great job of being unbiased, in my opinion!  The best part is the list of nasty tweets posted by Jill Zarin, who calls Simon a cyber-bully.  This woman is vicious to her cast-mates, take a look at what she’s tweeted just recently:

Was NYC Housewife Jill Zarin Cyber-Bullied by Simon van Kempen? http://t.co/DCcaqhV

Our friend and brand new blogger Lady Brooks had a few things to say today:


I posted a bit about NBC’s The Voice back when it first started, I really enjoyed the auditions where the judges/coaches had their back’s to the singers and would flip their seats if they liked what they heard.  The show has turned into a showcase for the judges/coaches, we hear them perform more than the contestants and quite frankly it has become boring.  I think a lot of really talented singers have already been sent home without much of a chance to let people hear what they can do with their voices.

Because of the way that they voted contestants off the show, in many cases they got only one chance to sing and it was a song that was sung in tandum with another contestant, a lot of these great singers never even got to perform solo.

Tonight the final four each did two songs but again, one of the two songs had to be done with their coach as a duet.  Seriously?  You don’t see JLo and Steven Tyler singing every week on American Idol!  We don’t tune in to see the judges singing.  These judges either have huge egos or the producers of this show highly overestimated the judges popularity.  I do like all four of the judges, well maybe the country singer was a bit of an ass at times but I enjoyed them as judges, mentors and coaches but they need to stop taking over the performances.

I also don’t enjoy the “Watch What Happens Live” bit of asking the contestants questions from viewers through Twitter and Facebook, the questions are stupid and we really don’t care to hear the answers, do we?

It’s sad, a really good show has turned into a variety show with Christina Agulara and her buddies taking over the entire show!  I hope they do bring it back next season, I enjoyed the first few weeks but I hope they revamp the second part of the way the show plays out.

Tonight Bravo has a new episode of Rocco’s Dinner Party, stop by tomorrow for Quincy’s recap!  Rocco is always just a bit of an ass but he’s more likable on this show than he was on his last show about his restaurant opening.  I think that show hurt his career a bit, he seemed to be irresponsible and difficult to work with.  Tonight Caroline Manzo makes a guest appearance on his show.  I’m sure all the other diners will get advice from Caroline, whether they want it or not.


Kelly Bensimon has a Bravo “extra” video posted, I assume it is supposed to be complimentary to Kell Kell but it looks like she’s stealing another jewelry designer’s stuff?  I didn’t really understand if the jewelry she was showing to these people was her inspiration or just stuff she bought in Morocco and decided to put her name on it?

The Real Housewives of New York City Season 4 – Kelly Asserts She’s Not in Kellyland – Video – Bravo TV Official Site http://t.co/aQYE2sZ

I love how she says she wants to keep the price-point low at $50 to $100, would you pay $100 for a piece of Kelly’s jewelry?  How about a feather hanging from a wire for $50?  I know you can’t wait to go out and when people ask where you got your necklace (so that they can avoid that store) you can say, “It’s Kelly Bensimon!”  Do you want to be laughed at?  Who is Kelly’s target market?  Teenagers?  Her stuff is way too small for Luann to wear, she needs a big honken butterfly to please Lulu.  Her “friend” Jill Zarin won’t wear Kelly’s jewelry, we have noticed that some of the ladies have worn Ramona’s jewelry.  Both Alex and Sonja have showcased Ramona’s collection.

Check out Kelly’s $65 feather earrings:


I double dog dare you to go out in public wearing these earrings!

I really like Ramona’s collection, it’s a bit expensive for me but at least you get a stunning piece of jewelry and not a feather on a wire.


Preview video – Sonja Morgan

Is anyone else really confused by this video?  Why is Sonja shoving her hand down her toilet and how could there be a cell phone down there and Sonja didnt’ know it?  Wasn’t she missing a cell phone?  Was she drunk?  Who drops a cell phone in their toilet without knowing it?  Oh Sonja, we love ya!


The Rich Amons Asshat of the Week Award goes to:  Mrs. Jill Zarin for being so immature that she truly needs to answer everything that happens on the internet, her tweet above about reaching a Twitter follower milestone is all about tomorrow’s “National Unfollow Jill Zarin day” and everyone knows it.  She simply can’t let anything go!

Jill’s constant digs at Ramona are over the top and unnecessary.  Jill says in her blog:

Ramona thought that LuAnn having Victoria’s party at a night club was inappropriate since to get into a club normally you need to be 21. I thought that was silly.

Asshat of the Week!

Why can’t Jill give her opinion of Victoria’s party without including Ramona’s opinion?  We all heard Ramona and we know what her opinion is so shut the hell up Jill!  Later in her blog she lumps Kelly into her opinion insisting on telling viewers that Kelly is of the same opinion as Jill, that is nothing to brag about Jill!

Thanks to Boston02127 for the great photo/captions of Jill Zarin below..

Until Next Time…

    you know you are SOMEBODY when you get twitter haters! hahah…..seriously….the internet has been a blessing and a curse! for every 5 wonderful people you “meet” there is always one crazy! bless you Lynn, you are in the 5 wonderful! 😉

  2. boston02127 says:

    Jill tries so hard to keep up and she’s miserably failing . This was her statement about being on the net (appx 1 yr ago):

    JILL ZARIN, reality TV personality (The Real Housewives of New York City)
    My Sony Vaio laptop because I constantly have to be in contact with e-mail, and I also have my iPhone. At home I have to have my laptop because it’s fast and has got everything I need. I find it very hard to unplug [at the end of the day]. I think it’s a disease that society is going to have to deal with in years to come.

    • vilzvet says:

      I think JILL is a disease that we are going to have to deal with for years to come, unfortunately. Thank the Lord for this blog…

      • quincyil says:

        (Note to Jill Zarin from your employees in Chicago and QuincyIL. We are experts at disease and can identify the pathogen affecting society within 24 hours. We will call it “The Jill Zarin Syndrome.” You will be infamous. Q)

    • Kathy says:

      Wonder how Bobby feels that his wife is constantly on a computer or phone…must get on his nerves. But then again maybe he is happy to have to not talk to her much!

      Did anyone see Luann is now a blonde? She looks like a drag queen

  3. IndianaHousewife says:

    I have been wondering since last week if the mention of this blog is what caused the last minute editing? Thinking back a lot of people had been saying they are getting tired of these shows and not watching so much as reading the blogs. I wonder if the producers changed their angle and re-edited the show to include us. It suddenly has a more interactive feel now and everyone is dying to know what happens next week, I bet the number of viewers shoots up for tomorrows show. I think this was a genius move to bring more viewers to the show.

    • cdnfillie58 says:

      I agree Indiana…wondering why they filmed the reunion before the season was done too. Imathinking they didn’t want the blog discussed on the reunion and by they I mean the brunettes lead by Jill the pill

      • dsc60 says:

        i didn’t think of that but you may have something there. i don’t know if Jill has that much power to control that but you know how Andy likes to keep the housewives happy. if that isn’t the reason, Jill really dodged a bullet there. that would have been great if they discussed this blog at the reunion! it’s gotta bug Jill about Sonya giving an interview too. surprised Jill hasn’t spouted more venom at her although i’m not sure of the timing. maybe she didn’t know when they were taping?

  4. boston02127 says:

    GTG, Have a good day everyone.

  5. jeepers1941 says:

    Just for once, I would like to see someone, first get jz’s full attention, then really give her what she deserves. If it was I, first off I would like to slap the shit out of her, as that is what would be needed to get her attention. Second I would like to see her admit what an asshole she is and has been the last 2 or 3 years and write a sincere letter of apology. And third, to be there when they give her her walking papers, (pink slip). Oh to dream the impossible dream……….. 🙂

    I also wanted to say welcome to all the new posters to Lynn’s blog…… 🙂

    Does anyone know if we are going to unfollow jz at a particular time of day?

    • plainviewsue says:

      Bravo to that! If Bawby had any balls and wasn’t so afraid and in awe of his wife, he would be the one to set her straight. Her sister Lisa, who is supposed to be such a smart cookie, should explain to her what the true meaning of the word bully is. The all mighty Gloria should be ashamed of her daughter’s behavior, but I think her face has been face lifted to the nines and she probably can’t even think anymore!

      • Indy501 says:

        R u Plainview Ny?

        • plainviewsue says:

          Yes, I am. Are u from Plainview??

          • Indy501 says:

            My husband grew up in Syosset, across from the Plainview Shopping Center. I have fond memories of the coffee shop and the bakery,lol.

            • plainviewsue says:

              Best bakery anywhere! Coffee shop has the best hamburgers. Been living here since 1987, when my oldest son was one years old!

              • Indy501 says:

                Ahhh. We got married at Midway J C. on SOB road in 1989. Family lived in Birchwood pk
                1955-1994. Im from the midwest and my husb has been here since 84. Enjoy a black & white for me. We were just in the city this weekend but no one left on the island so no visif:(.

      • jeepers1941 says:

        I can’t say to much about gloria, we are about the same age, but you can bet, I would have disowned jz a long time ago. Lisa and Bobby are both enablers. I have not any reservations in saying that jz knows exactly what being a bully is all about, now that is one thing she IS AN EXPERT on………. 😀

    • Error404 says:

      You’re crazy. LoL Attention? If you slapped Jill we’d never hear the end of it… What a victim she is… How you brutally attacked her… Bawwwwwwwby! I want bawwwwwwwwwby! Boo hoo hoo
      Jill will never “get” anything

      • VAgirl says:

        Agree, Error (I don’t think you’re crazy Jeepers) that Jill is a lost cause and will never, ever get it. The only thing slapping Jill will get you is arrested for assault and battery.

        • jeepers1941 says:

          Well hell I know I am crazy, and to prove it, I would be more than willing to spend time in jail if I got to be the one that knocked the snot out of jz………….but I know what you’re saying, I know she will never change, bot oh God would I ever like to punch her lights out, if you can understand that………… 😀

      • jeepers1941 says:

        I’d make sure her mouth would not be usable and her fingers were not able to twitter, thats for damn sure………… but you’re right, it would be brutal, that I promise you…….. 😀

    • Plymouth Lighthouse says:

      “Does anyone know if we are going to unfollow jz at a particular time of day?” jeepers ~ I was wondering the same thing.

  6. Kansas Girl says:

    Sadly, Kelly’s earrings are out of stock. Already. Of course. (Snicker)

    • VAgirl says:

      Shucks. I was going to get a pair and leave them to one of my kids so they could go on Antiques Roadshow one day with a pair of KKB originals and they would be appraised at a gazillion dollars.

      • vilzvet says:

        Kelly’s jewelry is not worth a comment. However, I was looking at Ramona’s line again, and man, is it to die for! Agreed that it is a bit overpriced for my budget but gorgeous!

      • vilzvet says:

        Kelly’s jewelry is an epic fail. However, I was looking at Ramona’s line and while I agree it is expensive it is truly to die for, very classy and gorgeous.

      • Jezzibel says:

        with $50 dollars I can go to Micheals/hobby lobby and create something much more beautiful and elegent then what Kelly has done…I fact I think most people would be able to create something much nicer then what she has come up with.

        • Nancy says:

          Kelly made all her new “jewelry” during “Craft Time” while at Bellevue Hospital last year.
          She won her very own “I Love Me Jacket”. (aka a straight Jacket)

    • cdnfillie58 says:

      Don’t know..looks like they’d make awesome lures for fishing 😛

    • floridagirl88 says:

      Hmmmm, I wonder if there was ever only one pair…..

    • dsc60 says:

      i seriously can’t believe anybody bought them. $50? even if they were 50 cents what would be the point of buying them ’cause who in their right mind would wear them? that’s a scary thought.

      • Well I for one would totally wear those earings if they were sold by someone else and half the price. Feather earings and hair clips are very much in right now. I actually just purchased a pair off of etsy.com a couple of weeks ago. I definitely have to say they would not be age appropriate to wear for someone in their 40’s plus like KKB. Too each their own but they are very trendy right now. 🙂

    • FLG says:

      Both pair?…… 8)

  7. Pantry viewer says:

    Morning! Enjoyed this craziness since our mention last week. She’s really a piece of work.

    Can we review the ways she has tried to shut the blog down? I’m assuming once in not posting her nasty and ridiculous top secret blight on word press. What else has she done in trying to shut it down? Will make me hate her more, sin e everyone is just venting on her awful, vengeful behaviour.

    • Pantry viewer says:

      Sorry. Bad typimg on phone. I meant posting her top secret blog, not blight, but ha ha. Interchangable, I suppose!

  8. VAgirl says:

    I’m with you Lynn. I lost interest in The Voice weeks ago.

    • cabbie413 says:

      Same here – i watched because ppl raved about how good it was, so i saw the first couple of weeks to catch up..but it was forgetable..it’s not like i reminded myself to watch or anything. oh well

    • majnon says:

      The reason I like The Voice is Vicki Martinez is a local girl around here. I have seen her perform in clubs in Tacoma and in Olympia where I live, so I rooting for her to win it all

    • dsc60 says:

      i watched a few of the earlier episodes. lost interest when i saw them singing duets to be judged. i don’t think that was fair to the contestants.

  9. T-REX says:

    Someone posted yesterday that Jzilla twatted she was in meetings and her and Bawby have something brewing, and this T-rex posted on yesterdays blog my response, and thought I should bring over here today to get other peeps opinions, here is mine:

    Our only hope would be the following: “After much concern over my constant tweeting, twatting, blogging, and Facebook updates, Bawby and I, the great Jzilla, are firing all of our PR staff, and random minions, that make sure I am in the press constantly, and going on a mission into deepest Africa to end the Civil Wars in Rwanda, we have been told that based on my book and all my other many abilities such as a lawyer, dentist, Indian chief, Sqeezemelo-ripoffsof-spanx, we are the only 2 people on the planet that could take this task on, see you in a few years”

  10. I found the Sonja fixing her toilet exclusive very strange.
    1) Why was the plumber there if she was fixing it herself?
    2) Why was she cleaning it with the brush if it was clogged?
    3) Did a partygoer just drop the blackberry in there?
    4) Why did the camera person keep zooming in on the plumber’s butt (and the plumber had jeans and a belt on – no plumber’s butt)

    What I took from this was that Sonja is on a very limited budget, and sweet talks people into helping her. I’m now also wondering if she rents her home out for these fabulous parties she throws (not that she said that – but it’s the feeling I get)

    • Error404 says:

      I hope she is smart enough to rent it out! We have friends staying with us. It was supposed to be for two weeks, then turned into 4, now it’s probably six. Last night the wife said they wanted to give us some money for our trouble and mr 404 started turning it down but I started kicking him under the table to shut up! I’m cooking and cleaning for 4 not to mention the loss of privacy. I take cash check and paypal! LoL

      • T-REX says:

        You go Error! Of course they should be paying, you are basically running a Bed and Breakfast for your friends!

      • VAGirl says:

        They may not be friends after this. That gets old really fast. You definitely should accept any payment they offer you.

      • Trudie says:

        Error404 – I had one set of friends who lost their home and another friend took them and their 5 kids in for what was supposed to be 3 weeks. Eight months later they finally moved out. Never paid for anything and would even call the host and tell her that she was out of milk. Never cleaned up after themselves, would ask “what’s for dinner?”, etc.

        I hope your friends do pay you for your hospitality. It is the least they can do….

    • TLM says:

      Maybe Sonja was inspired by Kelly’s home toilet repair clinic.

    • all i got from that video is DAMN that plummer was H O T and he was so checking her out and she ws checking out his buns

      LOL i love Sonja she is so real
      and a ditz dropping a cell in the toilet

      • dsc60 says:

        she probably dropped it down there on purpose then. just like that commercial of the guy pouring everything and the kitchen sink down the toilet because he saw a hot female plumber.

    • floridagirl88 says:

      In one of the earlier episodes, Sonja was at her own party in her own house carrying a purse on her arm. Just dropping by? When you don’t know how to fix things, you do stuff like use a bowl brush instead of a plunger. The plumber seemed amused. I think the whole point of that scene was 1) get free plumbing help by 2) having the camera do a close up on the shirt logo on the front of his shirt and the contact information on the back of the shirt. And yes, it was kinda hot.

  11. AZ Girl says:

    Welcome back Q. Glad you and the farm are safe. Just missed your post last night. Signed to watch MDD. Daisy house was really cool. I also watched last weeks NY episode and Bobby encounter with Simon. You can see Simon was pissed that Bobby would make such a statement.

    • AZ Girl says:

      “Signed off” got to get some coffee….

      • quincyil says:

        I didn’t have coffee for several days, but I really enjoyed it this morning.

        • VAGirl says:

          It’s the simple things in life, isn’t it?

        • Mookies1mom says:

          Glad you and your family are ok Q!

          Belated Happy B-day to HD!

          I’m having internet troubles so hopefully this will post.

          • quincyil says:

            Thanks everyone. Clean up continues, but the weather is great now.

            • FLG says:

              Empress, I know the clean up will continue for a long time after a storm of that magnitude. I am so happy that you are safe and I hope the damage to your homestead was minimal. If there is anything I can do to help let me know. Having power restored is such a wonderful feeling! After Hurricane Andrew (and all the ones that came afterward) all of the neighbors clapped as the Electric company came into our neighborhood to restore our power. We now have an emergency generator so we can at least keep our freezers going. Bless you and yours.

  12. viki55 says:

    I signed up on Twitter but I have no idea what I am doing. If I am following Lynn and try to follow Jill will that automatically get me blocked by Jill? Do I need to unfollow Lynn? Is there a particular time on the 30th?

  13. If you had it like this says:

    I have to say that I think Rocco is a d-bag. I think you are right about him hurting his reputation when he did The Restaurant or whatever that show was called. He is so insulting to the chefs on that show in an uncalled for way. He doesn’t have the great wit that Anthony Bourdain has who can insult the chefs and crack us up! Also, I’m sorry, but Padma gets on my last nerve. She is so smitten with herself and so sure that what comes out of her mouth is riveting and she’s the most appealing person in the room. Can I get at least one witness??

    • VAGirl says:

      I don’t know anything about Rocco, but I think Padma is a little to full of herself. I like Gail a lot better. Not watching Rocco’s show because I’m over cooking shows for now. Too much of a good thing makes it not special to me. I like the regular Top Chef shows the best. Same with housewives. The only one I’m actually watching is NY. I may watch BH when it comes on, but one at a time is enough for me.

      • If you had it like this says:

        Don’t watch Rocco. You won’t like him. I am having such a hard time watching NY this year! I really want a new cast. I’m tired of the forced, made up drama between women who don’t like each other and really aren’t friends. I actually like Jersey a little better this year because at least there is a real connection between a lot of the cast. I like BH for that reason too.

    • TLM says:

      I only watched the first episode of Crocco deShitto and haven’t since, since he confirmed he’s still a dick. I’ve hated him since The Restaurant. Dude was more well-liked before people had a chance to see him up close and personal; why he wants to do reality tv is beyond me. So he can be more universally hated, and kill any chance of a product line?

      I have always found Padma to be a big dull dud. She’s human valium and speaks like someone who has suffered a head injury. All this would make her merely dull and not hateful in my eyes, except that when she wants to, she’s shredded people with a verbal razor. I know this woman has published several cookbooks but I’m suspicious of whether she can actually cook, since she never sounds like she knows an effing thing about cooking, or whether I would even like any of her cooking. I find that I just want to smack her. She can join the catatonic Mrs Billy Joel whom she replaced on Top Chef. Gail is a close second. It would be nice if more people were like Tom Colicchio.

    • MKValle says:

      I agree, I think Rocco is an arrogant ass! In the previews he says something about one of the chef’s having the audacity to make meatballs for him. Apparently only Rocco can make meatballs….he is a meatball!

      • Okie Folkie says:

        You too, MKV? That one commercial with him sayin’ “YOU serve ME meatballs” just makes me really dislike him all the more.
        Hell, I think there MAY be others out in the world who could make Crocco’s meatballs, *ahem* (HIS MAMA’s) seem like somethin that came outta the south end of a big fat pig. I dont watch his new show. But how I wish that they would rerun his 1st Bravo show!

        • Mookies1mom says:

          He is an ass! I watched once or twice but I can’t stand him. The whole “you made ME meatballs” thing is just stupid and shows that he is an even bigger ass.

      • Christine says:

        On “The Restaurant”, Rocco’s mother was the one making the meatballs. Poor thing was always exhausted. Rocco was just being a tool.

        • Just because Jill said it, don't make it true says:

          Is rocco Mom still alive? How many failed reality shows has roco ad?
          The restaraunt then he did one when he went in homes and helped ppl cook. There are a few others.

    • I dont like the way either talks to other chefs i find Anthony just as bad

      as for Padma i just watched the episode and she seemed as sweet as can be

  14. neroes says:

    LuAnn is a blonde now. This picture reminds me of Danielle. http://www.yfrog.com/ken68oaj

    • FLG says:

      Not a good look for Countess Squash Blossom High Horse. Kim Z needs her wig back.

    • VAGirl says:

      I was going to say the same thing about looking a little like Danielle last night! I think it’s the pose rather than the blonde hair. Not a good look for her. I actually think Luann is a striking woman (when not in drag). Go back to brunette please.

      • FLG says:

        I enjoyed seeing the photo entitled “pretty man, handsome woman”. A picture is worth a thousand words……

    • Jezzibel says:

      Fail….her previous hair style suited her age and (im)maturity….no she looks like a over the hill bar fly trying to look young and hip and failing miserably

      • Kerry Okie says:

        I think there’s something more going on than just the hair. She looks “different,” but because of the drastic change with her hair, that’s what we focus on.

    • PantryViewer says:

      Seriously, that is so embarrassing. I can’t believe that at some point, these women don’t take a breath, step back, and say how I am behaving? How do I look to others? I’m incredulous at how ridiculous they are. This wig is just so embarrassing.

      • VAGirl says:

        I can’t believe their loved-ones don’t kindly say something. Maybe Luann doesn’t have anyone who cares enough to say something. Ted Gibson should be ashamed.

        • PantryViewer says:

          I know, right? It’s so odd to me. I guess her “yes” people secretly can’t stand her, either, and are laughing inside to themselves when they say, Oh, yes! That wig looks GREAT! Or, awesome! You are a terrific singer and won’t embarrass yourself at all! Or, no, don’t spend time with your kids! Who needs to do that? They’ll be fine on their own!

        • floridagirl88 says:

          LuMan’s got to get paid somehow and if wearing Kim Z’s wig gets her a check, well, wig on. Ted Gibson was probably laughing all the way to the, oh, wait a minute, I am sure LuMan didn’t pay for those services because he is, I mean, she is the Countless.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        They are so enamoured with themselves that they can’t see who they really are anymore. LuAnn truly believes she is beyond beautiful and that she is witty and charming too. She speaks to hear her own voice and doesn’t listen to other people, because frankly speaking, why should she? IMO, she should tatoo “maneater” on her forehead and just get over herself. lol

    • Not the best look for her. I wonder what hairstyle Kandi will be sporting this season? I think the woody woodpecker look is history thankfully. (PS – Kandi is my favorite – but I didn’t love the hair).

    • mariareads says:

      Is she crazy? She looks dreadful! And yes, she has that Danielle look going.
      She’s nuts.

    • ATLmeetsNYC09 says:

      I understand she probably wanted a change but why so drastic? She could have picked a darker, more complimentary color. Her natural hair is way too dark for her to be that blonde. Shes just trying way too hard; talk about inauthentic, lol.

      • HD says:

        Hot, boiling mess. I think she is probably trying to look young and exciting for Jacque. She failed.

    • TLM says:

      Ick. She looks like she should be hanging out with Camille and Allison Dubious.

    • jeepers1941 says:

      I think she still looks like crap even more so looking like a drag queen. OFF WITH HER HEAD and take the hair off her first, please…………

      • MAMAZ says:

        Kerry Okie – I think you’re right. It looks like more tham just a hair color change. Can’t put my finger on it though.

    • vilzvet says:

      Yes, Danielle, good call! And we all know how much we DON’T miss Danielle, I was always so uncomfortable watching her. LuAnn should have remained brunette, she has great bone structure and I liked the shorter cut. Wonder if these are extensions too…

    • Mookies1mom says:

      Have to agree with everyone. Not a good look on her at all!

      • Okie Folkie says:

        YIKES!!! My EYES, my EYES! Please pass the eye bleach! And the memory bleach, too…

        Surely she is made up like that for some dumb drag queen get-together or something. She cant have done that to herself thinking that she will now be a blond w/long hair, (on purpose)
        Yuck…dumb drag queen needs a flea dip!
        (as always, NO offense to SMART drag queens!)

    • Cheri says:

      I think she looks horrible as a blond.

    • she looks cheap and horriable which considering her personality is now a perfect match

  15. So Jill and Bawbee are about to announce a new exciting business venture. Who else thinks that Bawbee is paying for mentioning the blog on national TV. I’ll bet she has new earrings as well 🙂

    • VAgirl says:

      Oh Lord, please save us from another of Jill’s business ventures. Hasn’t she gotten it by now that she is not a savvy businesswoman?

  16. VAGirl says:

    Wednesday Funny.
    After I retired, my wife insisted that I accompany her on her trips to Target.
    Unfortunately, like most men, I found shopping boring and preferred to get in and get out. Equally unfortunate, my wife is like most women – she loves to browse.
    Yesterday my dear wife received the following letter from the local Target:

    Dear Mrs. Harris,

    Over the past six months, your husband has caused quite a commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this behavior and have been forced to ban both of you from the store. Our complaints against your husband, Mr. Harris, are listed below and are documented by our video surveillance cameras:

    1. June 15: He took 24 boxes of condoms and randomly put them in other people’s carts when they weren’t looking.

    2. July 2: Set all the alarm clocks in Housewares to go off at 5-minute

    3. July 7: He made a trail of tomato juice on the floor leading to the women’s restroom.

    4. July 19: Walked up to an employee and told her in an official voice, ‘Code 3 in Housewares. Get on it right away’.. This caused the employee to leave her assigned station and receive a reprimand from her Supervisor that in turn resulted with a union grievance, causing management to lose time and costing the company money.

    5. August 4: Went to the Service Desk and tried to put a bag of M&Ms on layaway.

    6. August 14: Moved a ‘CAUTION – WET FLOOR’ sign to a carpeted area.

    7. August 15: Set up a tent in the camping department and told the children shoppers he’d invite them in if they would bring pillows and blankets from the bedding department to which twenty children obliged.

    8. August 23: When a clerk asked if they could help him he began crying and screamed, ‘Why can’t you people just leave me alone?’ EMTs were called.

    9.. September 4: Looked right into the security camera and used it as a mirror while he picked his nose.

    10. September 10: While handling guns in the hunting department, he asked the clerk where the antidepressants were.

    11. October 3: Darted around the store suspiciously while loudly humming the ‘ Mission Impossible’ theme.

    12. October 6: In the auto department, he practiced his ‘Madonna look’ by using different sizes of funnels.

    13. October 18: Hid in a clothing rack and when people browsed through, yelled ‘PICK ME! PICK ME!’

    14. October 21: When an announcement came over the loud speaker, he assumed a fetal position and screamed ‘OH NO! IT’S THOSE VOICES AGAIN!’

    And last, but not least:

    15. October 23: Went into a fitting room, shut the door, waited awhile, then yelled very loudly, ‘Hey! There’s no toilet paper in here.’ One of the clerks passed out.

  17. The Sonya toilet thing reminded me of my favorite Rose Kennedy story.
    It seems Joe had ticked her off and he always used to buy her jewelry instead of apologizing. So, she called a plumber and had a small screen installed out of sight in one of the toilets in the house. Joe came home and presented her with a beautiful diamond ring. She told him she could no longer be bought and flushed it right in front of him. He had to actually verbalize his apology, and she came out the clear winner in this argument. The next day she had the plumber come back, he retrieved the ring, removed the screen and she never told Joe that she got the apology AND the jewelry on that one. LOL.

  18. I'm in Florida says:

    OT- I watched the video of Kelly’s jewelry….and noticed that something is stuck in her nose when she is talking–or are her sinuses collaspsing? Anyone else hear the nasal tone, like something is wrong?

  19. Butters'Mom says:

    OK VAgirl I am now giggling hysterically at work. That made my day

  20. HD says:

    OT-Is anyone watching this Casey Anthony trial? She makes me so mad. A blind man can see she clearly killed her daughter. I even think the parents know it but don’t want to say it outloud. They know that woman killed her daughter. I want to punch her in her face sitting in her chair all smug like she’s innocent!

    • Kerry Okie says:

      I really think that’s why the dad considered killing himself. He couldn’t handle knowing what kind of monster he raised. It’s just tragic all the way around.

    • VAgirl says:

      No, it makes me angry to watch it. If she’s not convicted, there’s no justice in this world.

    • I cant watch that horrorshow unfold

    • T-REX says:

      Since the trial is in my neck of the woods, so to speak, it’s on every news station, every stations websites, on all the talk radio programs, etc. The defense is making her look like that, it’s their strategy so that they can get the client off on a technicality or insanity, it’s what they have to do, it sucks, she should fry for killing her child, but it’s the way trials go.

    • Of course that BITCH murdered that sweet baby.
      I guess her parents just can’t fully except that no only is that precious child dead- but it was their daughters hand that did it. I don’t think I could recover from that type of grief,

    • lillybee says:

      George is on the stand today. I really feel bad for him.

      • MAMAZ says:

        I can’t watch. It’s too upseting.

        • vilzvet says:

          She’s guilty of course but now I’m thinking Amanda Knox is innocent after reading this week’s Rolling Stone. Very good article with new information.

          • Indy Anna says:

            I believe Casey killed Caylee accidentally. Like, maybe, she took her to a party and put her into a deep sleep with chloroform but gave her too much. It’s said that the whole family is known to be liars. I also think Cindy purjured herself on the stand regarding looking up information on the computer. Supposedly she was at work while the computer was being used.

          • Okie Folkie says:

            Yeah, I’m watching the trial too. George is the one for whom I the most sympathy. I think Baez is blowing this case. He continually gets his ass handed to him by the prosecution & Judge Perry.

            I always thought Amanda Knox got a very raw deal. Their judicial system seems to be very flawed, IMHO.

  21. Angel says:

    VAGirl, that was the funniest, thanks for making me smile.

  22. cabbie413 says:

    ok finally today is the 29th! ..the day I’m going to follow JillZarin, just so i can unfollow her @ss tomorrow! woo hoo

    ..and what’s this I hear about shout out to Bethenny day? Can someone clarify that for me?

  23. Sadie says:

    OMG – has anyone seen the pictures of the Countless at her music premiere???

    • VAgirl says:

      You mean with the blond hair? Yuck.

      • Kerry Okie says:

        She looks plastic, more than usual, but the “hair/wig” is what’s supposed to grab our attention, so maybe we won’t notice something else is different. IMO

      • Sadie says:

        Yes, the long blonde hair. Yuck is for sure.

        Does she thinks she’s 21? Or is she trying to imitate Alex?

        It’s totally inappropriate for her age – so much for “class”.

        • MAMAZ says:

          Kerry – I answered you upthread. I think you are onto something. She looks different to me too.

          • vilzvet says:

            Did anyone else notice that the DJ at Victoria’s party was none other than the “That’s What I’m Talkin’ About” Music Producer? He really must be slumming it these days! I don’t think anyone else mentioned it.

            • LOL- funny that you did because I noticed it too. I was going to post about it but then got swept away in the buzz of the blog being mentioned.

  24. Q people here were so worried about you last night
    i was so out of it i didnt even know there were bad storms

    hope everything is a- ok

    • quincyil says:

      A lot of other people are far worse off. Midwesterners don’t complain, they just keep working.

      • vilzvet says:

        It was high winds and rain too? How did your barn hold up? Is it wood?

        • quincyil says:

          It’s a Morton Stable, but it’s on a foundation.

          We know how to build so we could fix all of the damage.

          • FLG says:

            This is what makes me so angry at people like JZ and Squash Blossom. Here are genuinely decent hardworking people suffering the trauma of real losses and JZ is worried about how many twitter followers she has. Geeeezzz.

    • PantryViewer says:

      OMG! Such drivel.

      “She’s an amazing role model,” Kelly tells Life & Style. “LuAnn is always evolving, and I think it’s really great to see someone like her who has so much confidence. She’s blond, and she’s hot!”

      That’s it. Kelly is definitely out of her mind if that’s what she thinks an amazing role model is! Hilarious and pitiful and disgusting all at the same time. They really believe their own hype and don’t get that everyone is laughing at them or disgusted by them. Oh my gosh.

      • FLG says:

        “but since the blondes didn’t come to my party, I got my chance!” Did she invite them?

        • FLG says:

          The only place she should wear that look is on an episode of Judge Judy. “look what they did to me”…..

    • katlg says:

      Is she wearing “her” Herman Munster shoes?

      • VAGirl says:

        OMG, I thought the same thing! She has some nerve ragging on Alex’s shoes.

      • Kansas Girl says:

        They’re “amazing light-up shoes by Nina”. Are those the kind that flash when you walk? Like little kids wear? I’ve always wanted some like that.

    • ATLmeetsNYC09 says:

      Shes trying to be Jessica Rabbit….FAIL

      • MAMAZ says:

        LuAnn looks awful. But Jilldamort looks even worse. What is with that silver tent thing she’s wearing? She’s the worst advertisment for her own Skweezwear. Shouldn’t she be in some tight, slinky thing?

    • We Can Never Be Friends says:

      Jill’s dress looks like a potato sack, Kelly’s looks like a long white beach towel, LuMan’s should be on Victoria instead and Cindy’s looks like 1950’s kitchen curtains.

      • vilzvet says:

        God I hate them all, please forgive me.

        • dsc60 says:

          don’t feel bad… they provide us with all the content to hate them… it’s their fault, not ours.

          interesting that Sonya wasn’t there to see Luann make a complete a$$ out of herself AGAIN. i’ve definitely been liking Sonya again… she has been reprieved.

  25. Adgirl says:

    Milliona Dollar Decorator … yawn. I’m sorry but that show just isn’t that interesting.
    I have to disagree with Q’s assesment of Jeffrey & Ross.
    Jeffrey was hired to design the restaurant. Ross – who my mother would call a “kept man” – should have been fired for insubordination. Screaming at Jeffrey because he hadn’t decided on an incidental such a lamp? Seriously Ross is a turd and a user. And his playing around with his hair. Such a pretty boy tanrum thrower. Eww.

    How long before that relationship blows up? Geeee… lets see…. Ross suddenly starts his own busisness with the contacts he’s made thru Jeffrey.
    This is just like Ryan Brown on Flipping Out. Stealing Jeff’s client’s through misdirection.

    I thought Daisy’s new decor looked cheap. The brown cahirs looked like they were mail ordered. I’ve seen that mirror thingy at Tuesday Morning. Too bad because the modern art thoughout the house was amazing.

    • Kansas Girl says:

      I agree about Jeffrey and Ross’ relationship. Last week with the birthday party, I thought Ross was outright disrespectful of Jeffrey. I think Jeffrey loves Ross a lot more than Ross loves Jeffrey. To my eyes, the relationship is already on rocky ground.

      LOL at the mirror and Tuesday Morning. I started to say I should shop there more, but then it dawned on me I don’t need an adjective mirror like that in my little cottage.

    • VAgirl says:

      And I thought this was going to be a slow news day. Lol.

    • Rhetorica says:

      Complimenti!!!! UPDATE – Teresa is NOT pregnant … yet. Apparently, the InTouch article reveals she is “getting ready” to be pregnant, not that she already is. Please take note of the change. Joe! preggo yet!

      • ATLmeetsNYC09 says:

        OMG the Horror! Im going to have nightmares because of this. She needs to shut the baby factory down.

      • MKValle says:

        In Touch, Star, Life & Style….all trashy magazines. Being in the mag business myself, I’, always amazed at the popularity of these rags. Can’t believe people hand over money for this crap and more amazed that people actually believe it. I think it’s perfect that LuAnn chose to have Life & Style sponsor her party for her video, low class all the way.

        • Kansas Girl says:

          My 90-year-old great uncle used to have a subscription to the Inquirer, he love it so. His kids got it for him because that was all he wanted for his birthday one year.

        • dsc60 says:

          Life & Style called Luann a “doting mother.” don’t think i believe much of what’s said in that rag.

    • lillybee says:

      After stiffing her ob-gyn, she may have a hard time finding another.

  27. quincyil says:

    JIll Zarin is in OPERATION TITANIC


    She hit an iceberg and she is leaking. Jill’s crack team of PR people put out a rumor that Cindy and Alex are leaving the show. Cindy is a cover so we won’t suspect Jill.

    Have you ever heard this before? There are rumors that Alex McCord is leaving the show because the other housewives don’t like her or her husband. You have to be kidding Jill. In the Midwest, we call this wishful thinking, not a rumor.

    We all know Jill like to tell us rumors on national TV. She also is a confessed backstabber so it would be the norm to make peace with Alex with a back yard bondfire of her many list of sins by Alex and at the same time try to hurt Alex’s chance to support her family in Brooklyn.

    Alex has lots of friends on the show. She has Sonja and Ramona. Ramona is actually the star of the show since Bethenny left. Ramona would stand up for Alex and so would Sonja.

    I believe this is payback for Alex having a cocktail with lynnnchicago a year ago.

    I don’t believe this for one .000000000000001 of a second of time.

    Wait, could the rumor be true? Maybe, Alex is getting break out status like Bethenny. That would be great fun. Yes, that is it! Tell all of your friends. Q figured it out. It’s an IHJZ light bulb moments. Alex is a star. Jill is left behind in the mud again.


    • Sadie says:

      If I’m not mistaken, Jill allegedly did the same thing last year(and possibly the year before).

      She must believe that if you start a rumor, it can become fact.

      She’s just appallingly transparent.

      Did anyone see that interview where the Countless said RHONY was so much better off without Bethenny? Yeah, that’s why I can’t sit through an episode anymore. Sooooo much

      • Kukulet says:

        Yeah…Alex is leaving the show like Jill wasn’t going to come back this year because…sob…”Alex hates me”…sniffle…”and I don’t think I can work with her”…waaa.

        I wouldn’t be surprised if Cindy wasn’t asked back, though. She’s boring.

        Jillsie, take a page out of Bethenny’s book, huh? She doesn’t get personal on the social networks. Doesn’t cyberbully or mean tweet. No wonder she doesn’t want to be friends with you anymore…she’s gotten off the ground floor and headed to the penthouse.

    • ATLmeetsNYC09 says:

      This hag really needs to get a life….

    6-27-11 Update: Bravo Gets Largest Fine in Broadcast History From FCC… 

    TOTALLY FORGOT TO ADD THE WORD”SHOULD.”  AS IN “SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN THE LARGEST FINE IN BROADCAST HISTORY FROM THE FCC.” YOU SHOULD RECOGNIZE SATIRE WHEN IT’S GLARING YOU IN THE FACE!!!! On the other hand, maybe I should have gone with the real story:“Emergency rooms from Maine to Florida were jammed after midnight last night. Strangely, there was one thing every patient had in common, whose symptoms ranged from severe head pain, swollen ankles, torn rotator cuffs, hives, unstoppable tics and talking in tongues.  They had all just finished watching the super-sized episode of the Real Housewives of New Jersey.  The majority of patients complained of a brain image of a topless Joe but his Joe Boxer long johns (with footies), which induced spontaneous vomiting.  All patients have been hospitalized.  There will be a quorum of doctors tomorrow to research a cure for this producer-induced medical malady.”**************

    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 betweenBravoNBC UniversalComcastAndy Cohen, personal suitTeresa GiudiceJoe 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.

    Would.love to take credit, but this is from Reality TV Morans on Facebook.

    Over the next couple of days we will see on many blogs instances of Jill cyberbullying her castmates via tweeter or other blogs. Maybe someone will get to the bottom of the blog by LisaNewEngland – I am smelling yet another alias or family member being outed! Jill Zarin, Jill Zarin you are in for a surprise when what you thought you did to others comes back to bite you. lol fun times ahead….

    • lillybee says:

      Is LisaNewEngland still posting?

      • IndianaHousewife says:

        The last one was 5 weeks ago, I had to and check as I had the same question. That one was blasting Ramona for drinking. I do not know about anyone else but I am getting tired of the alcoholic theme.

        • HW Addict says:

          I was over that the second they (Jillousy and her minions) started it. I smelled a rat from the begining, you just cannot be an alcoholic and look like Ramoner does at her age and run 3/4 businesses, keep Maurio happy and raise an intelligent, sweet and sure of her self young lady like Avery. Now that i think about it…I believe Maurio and Avery would be the first ones to call Ramoner out if she had a problem. I think they are a realy tight family and love each other dearly. I also believe that the Ramoner would not act toward Jillousy or her flying monkey’s as they have towards her if she believed them to have an addiction or, lets say, a mental illness. I believe that she would be there for them and conduct her concern in private. I have a hunch she tried to reach out to KKB and that’s why KKB is relishing ripping Ramoner apart.

  32. NAmerican says:

    So Bobby accuses Simon of being a part of a “HATE BLOG”, then Jill changes the story that Simon “MEAN TWEETS” her and Kelly…. So is this Jill re-writing history again? Is she trying to undo the mention of THIS BLOG? Too late, you can’t put toothpaste back in the tube….

    Exclusive: Countess LuAnn de Lesseps’ ‘Chic C’est La Vie’ Video Premiere
    Leave a CommentBy Rob Shuter Posted Jun 29th 2011 01:23PM
    Countess LuAnn de Lesseps reached out to all her ‘The Real Housewives of New York’ castmates in the music video for her new single ‘Chic C’est La Vie,’ however, only Jill Zarin and Kelly Bensimon said yes.

    “It was very disappointing that the other ladies wouldn’t be part of it. The other girls didn’t come, they didn’t think it was appropriate. I didn’t want anyone to feel like they were being excluded so I invited everyone. And let’s face it, I sing about them in the song,” LuAnn told me at a Life & Style magazine party. “They said it was not the right image they wanted to portray and I was like ‘excuse me, not the right image?’ Who goes out without their panties, another rubs her husbands naked chest on the show, please.”

    • Kerry Okie says:

      I couldn’t get through the video. The horror, the horror.

      • majnon says:

        Oh God, that video was icky

        • MAMAZ says:

          I watched with the sound off and still couldn’t get through the whole thing.
          Jill made an ass of herself!
          Kelly wasn’t too horrible. I almost believe she really was a model.
          I though LuAnn looked gorgeous with the tease, glam, sex kitten hair. Beautiful but old. She’s either had some work done since then or the blonde photos are heavily photoshopped.

      • Seriously, I kept waiting for LuAnne to say

        “It puts the lotion on it’s skin or else it gets the hose again”

    • TLM says:

      That was more embarrassing than the worst early-MTV videos I can remember. That Jill and Kelly were in it just shows their desperation. The “song” sounds like something a 5-year old wrote in 3 minutes. And if Luann is claiming what a great singer she is, why is she TALKING through this whole thing? I see the albino producer guy is in half the video, too. It looked like just the 4 of them were there with the same three camera shots for the whole song. It looked like at the very end, they must have offered random people on the boardwalk free drinks to come in, hence the wifebeater-shirt guys dancing in the background. This was the worst vanity project I’ve ever seen. Just a bunch of sad people desperate lightning will magically strike. Even worse, she mentioned all the other housewives in it. Is this Luann’s project, or a Bravo promo? I don’t even care, but it all was embarrassing. If I wasn’t willing to appear in her video, I wouldn’t want to be mentioned in that dumbass song.

    • We Can Never Be Friends says:

      Why WOULD they go support the bitches? They only have to be around the mean team for filming the show. Jill spends her off time spreading rumors about them, mean tweeting about them and tries to ruin their lives for real and LuMan and Kelly support THAT. Boycotting this pathetic video isn’t mean, it’s healthy for God’s sake.

      • ATLmeetsNYC09 says:

        I really dont believe LouMan even asked them to participate. She would do something snarky like that. I find it interesting that Cindy isnt in the video though.

        • buffywood says:

          She asked then to come, just like she told them dinner was at 8.

          I wasn’t going to watch it but the comments here sucked me in. Wow, at least Kelly could have done was wash her hair! And the guy at the end in the Wife Beater, thanks says class all over it.

          • nathania says:

            I wasn’t either I only have two thoughts, one that her real accent slipped out and she starts sounding a bit like a hillbilly in parts, and two, it’s a rip off of another song. people need to listen to the tune and help me figure it out what song it is.

            and besides that it’s a very weak tune in general.

            kelly is definitely trapped in the body of a white girl.

            and it’s the kind of french that makes the french beg americans to please not try to speak french, too.

            can someone translate what chic c’est la vie means? I know what the words themselves mean but what does the phrase it self mean? is that grammatically correct french? should it be c’est la vie chic?

          • BessiB says:

            See, THIS is why Bravo and those women should be sending Lynn a check.

            I would not have checked it out at all except to know what everyone else is snickering at. It is the “What Is So Funny?” syndrome.

    • katlg says:

      Laughing so hard I am crying, this is as good as the Retired Husband up thread.
      It is just a shame she is not laughing at herself…….

      • HD says:

        This was about the worst ish I have seen. LMAO!!! WTF was Luann thinking?! This is HORRIBLE! Is this is what she calls her “work” instead of being with her kids?!! LMAO!!! That was so damn bad!! I can’t believe it. Jill has NO rhythm! She looked like a fool! LMAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    • MKValle says:

      That was HORRIBLE! The worst of all attempts by any of the housewives, and I thought nothing could be worse than the song from Bimbo Kim Z. She doesn’t even sing, it’s one of those talking songs like Captain Kirk did back in the day (my god, his name evades me, I’m getting old). The whole thing looks so cheaply done. No surprise that Jill & Kelly would be the only 2 to show up, they are the ones most desperate for celebrity status. Pathetic!

    • happygal says:

      Alip- I am with you on this- Lumann has bought into all of the hype of the show, her dysfunctional fans and worst of all, the record producer whispering in her ear that she can actually sing, perform and has talent- What a crock… she bought into it- has been made an absolute fool of herself and embarrassed her children- for what- her ego is out of control. The posse of Jill, Kelly and Cindy is equally ridiculous. Watching Jill think she is cool in that video is hysterical- Kelly just does her Kelly ” jelly Bean feather thing” – but Jill is pathetic- she wants to be cool, she wants to be long you can just see how much she wants to be loved and liked – yet she has no clue how to accomplish it-
      this video is sad- these women are so sad… and G_D bless Alex, Sonia and Ramona for saying No- not going near this video-
      Lastly- i love RuPaul drag race and Lumann would Never qualify to even be considered to particiapate on that show- she isn’t able to “Work it” at all!

    • nathania says:

      she makes a double entendre about ‘swallowing’ and
      says it’s bad to ‘rub your husbands’ naked chest on tv…good grief

  34. PantryViewer says:

    LuMan needs some Skeeeez under that purple dress! Or maybe she has one on and it’s inferior and doesn’t work, but geez, come on. I was so horrified and shocked and laughing at her blond wig that I didn’t notice anything else the first time I looked. When someone referenced LuMan’s Herman Munster shoes above, I went for a second look. HAHAHA! That’s right on. Horrible, horrible shoes. Icky pooch gut, horrible wig – I mean, it’s like it’s a joke or something. So much wrong with that picture. Go home, LuMan!

  35. California35 says:

    Hi everyone!

    I am here only for a hit and run….but had to 🙂 no time to read anything…so sorry if this was in already.
    Andy on SNL??!!! who said it? who wants him there? Is he known enough for the SNL viewers? He is a NY guy and has his NY shows (wives and WWHL), so he is local. I would watch him, there is no question about it, I watch SNL period and I would watch for him also…I just would really HATE if he brings a wife to the audiance because we all know WHO would want to be on the first row.

    Okay – must go…I will come back later later….

  36. PantryViewer says:

    Okay, after viewing LuMan’s ridiculous video, had to laugh. How many of you want to BET that Jizz is the one who said she wanted to BE in that freaking video, bugging LuMan about it incessantly? Because we all know Jill created LuMan and made her who she is today!

    HOW LAME WAS THAT, Jill and Kelly shaking their head back and forth, acting like 13-year-old girls? LuMan’s singing and actually making a video was bad enough, but oh my gosh, having those two losers in it with her? Jill finally got her wish to invite herself onto someone else’s coattails…even if those coattails are laughable.

    NOW I can laugh at them. I’ve never been able to laugh at their vile, pretentious, awful behavior like some kind. Today, for the first time, I can laugh at them. How embarrassing. I could never show my face in public again if I was any of the three of them.

  37. TLM says:

    The Countess disses Bethenny yet again, calls Alex McCord a “weirdo”: http://omg.yahoo.com/blogs/thefamous/exclusive-countess-luann-is-so-glad-bethenny-left-housewives/1617

    • PantryViewer says:

      How desperate she is to reference/slam Bethenny, as she knows that’s the only way she might get a mention in the press, all to promote that juvenile, embarrasing video.

      People are laughing at you, LuMan, not thinking you’re fabulous.

    • happygal says:

      To quote Lumann- Countess and Alex McCord constantly clash; McCord calls Countess “haughty,” “condescending” and “vile” toward the cast.
      “People do say that — and I guess I can come off that way — but it’s not ill meaning or anything like that,” says Countess, who calls McCord a “weirdo.” “I guess it’s just a different way of looking at it, and I’m not going to apologize for the way I am.”

      So acting”haughty,” “condescending” and “vile and saying the things that she says are not “Ill Meaning”- WTF is she snorting crack????????????????? I am so sick of these Non apologies from people like her , Jill and Kelly, etc-
      Who raised these people- where are the manners she claims to have…..

  38. Nancy says:

    Did everyone hear the slam on Jill by Bethenny last night while on Piers Morgan CNN?
    They were talking about her book “A Place of Yes” I can’t remember Piers exact question but B answered it with “Yes when toxic people are in my life I just have to cut them out!”
    It was so obviously directed at Jill. LOVED IT!!

    • cabbie413 says:

      i dont think it was directed at Jill. Bethenny is WAY beyond her and her pettiness. I do,however, feel that Jill falls into the category that Bethenny spoke of.

      • We Can Never Be Friends says:

        I do. I think it was a right-between-the-eyes BULLS EYE on Jill’s forehead. And I know Jill felt it. Bethenny is brilliant. She does it in a way that Jill will feel it but no one can accuse her of it! Love you Bethenny!

  39. MAMAZ says:

    Am I late? I saw it on yeaterday’s blog. If I am

    • Golden Girl says:

      Same here if I missed it Happy Birthday HD!

      • HD says:

        Thanks Mamaz and Golden Girl! Also thanks to those that gave me b-day wishes yesterday. My birthday was yesterday but I told my daughter it’s my birthday month (she didn’t buy that *eye rollage*) so I’ll take the well wishes! 🙂

        • Okie Folkie says:

          Happy Birthday! HD! I hope you have lotsa fun! And, of course you have to celebrate for an entire month! *no eye rollage*

    • dsc60 says:

      hope you had a Happy B-day!!!

  40. dsc60 says:

    some interesting tidbits from RHNY. i’m watching an epi from season 2. we know now how Kelly justifies going to all the parties she does and being away from her girls so much – she working!!! yes she is. she said people ask her what she does for a living all the time. she tells them that she goes to parties and then writes about the parties! see? that makes it all perfectly understandable! this season she said it’s fine to be away from your kids if you’re working or having fun… so she’s killing two birds with one stone!

    also, jill is with a designer trying on dresses. ok get ready to gag. the designer tells her one of the outfits she has on is a size 0 on the runway. please! i just don’t believe it. for one thing she’s got too big a bust for that. for another thing, she’s trying on many outfits and only one of them is a size 0? i think the designer must have just been trying to make her feel good so she’d buy more. she said she needed a camera to take a picture to show Bobby so he could write a check IMMEDIATELY.

    well i’m still watching. right now Ramona is being very nasty to Simon. what a difference two seasons make.

    • dsc60 says:

      and Kelly was just as annoying then as she is now. never liked her.

      • MAMAZ says:

        I never liked kelly either. And I agree there is no way in hell JZ can fit into a size 0 anything. Not even in S2 although she did look way thinner then than she does now.

    • vilzvet says:

      LOL I’m watching this chestnut too! How about answering Kelly, that you get money from your EX and that’s about it. And the runway size 0 is a distant memory for Jill, even with Skweez!

    • IndianaHousewife says:

      And what size are the clothes she is selling on ebay I think a 6 or 8? Runways sizes are always smaller right? You shouldn’t lie on TV, it will always come back and bite you.

    • floridagirl88 says:

      So those dresses Jillzy was selling on eBay, size what? Not zero.

  41. Happymouth says:

    Jill is so childish and stupid,,,,,,,,,,,,,,she has posted a question / poll on her facebook :Jill Zarin asked Do you want to read a letter from Carol about Ramona? In ep. 1 you saw Carol and the “Cigar Incident…
    What an idiot !

    • I just read it on Facebook, Jill is ridiculous. I forgot all about the “Cigar incident” until she brought it up today. She’s changed alright, she has gotten worse.

      • LOL- Sure because I would really trust the judgment of a girl who dated Howie…

        Jill is really reaching. Maybe she should also hunt down a waiter who will claim that Ramona gave him a lousy tip? Or a dry cleaner to complain that Ramona never can produce her ticket stubs and it makes them harder to find the stuff? Or the librarian from Ramona’s elementary school to swear that she never returned a copy of “Are you there God,it’s me Margaret?”

        • captnfirepants says:

          funniest post today!

          even funnier are the comments on Jill’s Facebook. amazing how few supporters she really has. talk about delusional.

  42. Jill posted this on Facebook:

    Do you want to read a letter from Carol about Ramona? In ep. 1 you saw Carol and the “Cigar Incident.” I have been asked to make this letter public by Cindy. Should I?

    • VAgirl says:

      No, Jill. You should not.

    • Happymouth says:

      O just posted that above……………Jill is crazy !

      • MAMAZ says:

        I don’t give a crap what Cindy thinks about Ramona let alone her brother’s ex girlfriend.

    • IndianaHousewife says:

      Hmmm – and why can’t Cindy make the letter public? Jill needs to be involved because why?

      I bet you have to sign-up for some super secret newsletter and she will make this available to the public on June 30th. That why no one would un-follow her right?

    • We Can Never Be Friends says:

      Threatening to do more bullying. Unreal.

      • BessiB says:

        She is trying to one-up or divert from the interest he husband created in this site….

  43. I don't have my notes says:

    With as horrible Luann is in that video, Jill is worse. Kelly actually looks like she belongs in a music video, she is relaxed. Jill is acting too hard to be chic. She is pulling faces instead of posing seductively and she can’t even sway to the beat. She kind of reminds me of a small child acting up in front of their parent’s movie camera. This whole thing is so deliciously sad.

    • VAgirl says:

      I agree. Kelly was the only one who looked “authentic.”

      • Nancy says:

        I feel so sorry for their children. Victoria might have to move to Mars.
        She really looks like she’s in drag. I’m surprised she wasn’t wearing that ridiculous outfit she had on last week at Jill’s party. Jill? She’s pathetic. Could you imagine if Ramona did something like this? Speechless.

    • TLM says:

      Maggie Griffin would have looked more natural than Jill in the video. It was all so stiff and staged and amateurish and phony.

      I think Kelly looked at ease because she didn’t know where she was. They probably just told her they were making an anti-bullying video.

    • nathania says:

      they make me sick with their faux friendship.

      if the blondes disappeared tonight, they would be eating each other for lunch by tomorrow.

  44. Adgirl says:

    Jill and her non-stop Facebook slams against Ramona … cyberbullying anyone??
    The Singers need to consult an attorney.
    Jill needs to seek therapy for her addiction to fame. Seriously, I can’t recall anyone else who has such a pronounced need to be “in the media” EVERYDAY. I feel like I’m watching someone falling down a flight of stairs in slow motion. She is really losing her sh1t.

    • Kukulet says:

      ITA. And her desperation is just…creepy. Seriously.

      Bethenny was right. Jill needs to get another hobby.

    • PantryViewer says:

      Isn’t it just insane? Seriously! Good God. Agreed she needs therapy for her addiction to fame, and also for trying to ruin people as well. Jesus!

  45. lovemamaearth says:

    So Kelly is just ripping off design ideas from others in another country. How is that being a “good” woman? She is a lollipop.

    And I wonder how many twitters Jill has blocked.

  46. IndianaHousewife says:

    Ok I have a confession and a question

    Confession, I just watched LuAnn’s video.

    Question – What is she handing out at the end – it looks like Countess LuAnn’s private label of condoms. I mean I have known some sluts in my time but most of them do not develop their own label. Way to keep it classy LuLu.

    • I don't have my notes says:

      Hey Fellow Hoosier!

      I just rewatched the video and I can’t tell what those black squares with her insignia on them are either.

      I must admit the song it’s self isn’t as bad as her first one but LuAnn doe not SING she SPEAKS the lyrics in rhythm to the music. How dare that mule in horse’s harness call herself a singer.

  47. Happymouth says:

    Jill’s latest tweet :Sorry guys…Carol asked me not to publish the letter since she is afraid of any backlash. I have to respect that and only wish her peace and well being. She deserves that.

    • LavaLady says:

      Jill = Idiot

      • Kukulet says:

        Backlash? Somehow I don’t think Ramona rolling her eyes at the stupidity of the whole thing is something to be afraid of.

        Jill, Cindy, LuAnn, Kelly – they’re such dorks.

        • Happymouth says:

          I think Jill meant that Carol ( Howie’s girlfriend ) was afraid of backlash.

          • Jill deleted the poll and the question from her Facebook. She also deleted the comment that you copied and pasted above. She got rid of all the evidence. LOL

            • Happymouth says:

              Wow………..she deleted the comment she made about Carol from her twitter , but she still has the this one : Jillzarin Jill Zarin
              I have a very interesting question posted on my Facebook page. Please visit. As always, I will do what you ask me to do. http://t.co/HM5Qe25
              Well…………we have all the evidence saved here !!!!! LMAO

              • lovemamaearth says:

                Wow. Her cowardice has been memorialized. I wonder how her DH and daughter will feel about that.

            • BessiB says:

              You mean she TRIED to bet rid of all the evidence.

          • Kukulet says:

            Oh, sorry. Gosh, she’s right. Ramona might do something terrible, like publicly call Carol an alcoholic. 😉

    • We Can Never Be Friends says:

      “Sorry guys” ??? OH, she means her flying monkeys wanted to see it. She’ll manage to get it out there somehow since it’s more Ramona bashing. I didn’t think I could hate her more but every day she gives me more reasons. Idiot

    • AZ Girl says:

      Jill got some negative tweets from that post. One called her juvenile.

      • Golden Girl says:

        I really do not get Jill, how is it that she claims Simon cyber bullied her but she does not think that what she is doing to Romona is cyber bulling?

        • MAMAZ says:

          She may not have released the contents of the letter but now everyone knows there is a letter. Damage done.

    • FLG says:

      Sounds like Carol may be a bit PO-ed at Jillzy right now. Just like the phone message she saved for months and months. Her score card case must qualify for extra baggage charges by now. I’m sure she totes it with her everywhere she goes.

      • BessiB says:

        Sounds like there may have been something in the letter that was not true and Carol was shitting herself over a possible lawsuit.

  48. lovemamaearth says:

    I’m watching a few of the Flipping out reruns. Boy that Ryan Brown was an outright theif by re-routing people from Jeff to Brown Design.
    And Jeff teaching Ryan’s little girl to act badly, would have made me angry too. She seems smart as a whip though.

    • Adgirl says:

      Totally. What a tool. Jeff was so hurt he kept excusing him. How is it Bravo didn’t make Ryan give up the url Flipping Out??

      Ross on Million Dollar Decorating (horrid title) is an ass too. He is the young histrionic boyfriend of the decorator Jeffrey. They live & work together. His next move will be top steal clients from Jeffrey, just like Ryan Brown.

      • Kansas Girl says:

        I hope they don’t own the house together. It’s gonna be a bad breakup.

        • lovemamaearth says:

          Did either of you understand what Jeff meant when he said Ryan’s little girl could have been his? Ryan’s not gay is he?

          • Kukulet says:

            Yeah, Ryan’s gay. He and Jeff used to be romantically involved. Ryan and his partner (I think it’s Derek?) adopted Chloe. That’s why Jeff said that – if he and Ryan had stayed together, then they would have adopted Chloe.

            • No, Chole isn’t adopted, Ryan used a surrogate. I remember Jeff calling him and asking if he could have any of the left over embryos (i don’t want to get into a heavy debate about it or too political but actually kind of bothered me that Ryan revealed there were over 20 on ice, I think that seems like such a waste of human life).

              • Kukulet says:

                Oh, okay. Sorry, I thought she was adopted. 🙂

                I don’t necessarily agree with keeping embryos on ice. If they aren’t used for the surrogate, then donating them to stem cell research might be a consideration. Better than wasting them completely.

                • lovemamaearth says:

                  Thanks for the answers. I think Ryan should stick to being a dad and Jeff should stick to business. JMHO that’s what they’re each better at.

    • lovemamaearth says:

      It made Lumannerless look like a man. Maybe that’s the look she’s going for now.

    • Rhetorica says:

      She’s a piece of work! WAY too old to dress like this. Her menopausal arms & menopausal pouch are hanging out. She’s nice looking; but don’t try to be 20 again.

      • MAMAZ says:

        I didn’t post that! I don’t know who was using my name but you can see it’s neither of my two avatars. I have the brownish one, this one, on my desktop and a purple one on my laptop.

        Lynn or Quincy please check the isp on this post. I worry about future inappropriate posts from this person.

  50. Congratulations Lynn says:

    Congratulations Lynn. You have been featured, as you have been in Chicago Now and other sites. Go Girl.

  51. Congratulations Lynn says:

    I don’t think that is funny at all. I HATE LUANN, but to use a terrorist as a joke who killed thousands of people is disgusting.

  52. captnfirepants says:

    Jill took down the “letter” posts. she really can’t own anything.

    • Adgirl says:

      She would never do that. LOL.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Is someone capturing all this snipper bullying Jillsy is doing? Who the F cares about some stupide letter from Carol of Howie of Cindy nonsense? Ramona doesn’t and RHNY fans don’t either. Give up Zarin you don’t got game!

      • I hope that in some small way (or even better a big one) that the thought of UNfollow Jill Zarin Day is making her loony. I hope that either Q or Lynn post the info again during the chat, since I am sure there will be an influx of hits because of the show.

      • lovemamaearth says:

        It’s weird how those who accuse Simon of bullying ARE the bullies. Projection much? Shame on them.

  53. So I was at the grocery store to get a few things for dinner and to stalk up o some SGM for tomorrows event, the clerk at the store told me that they sell 3 cases of it a day. In the other grocery store just down the street they have a huge front end display with Bethanny posters.

    • Dani says:

      It is so nice that we can now get SGM in Arizona now. I am a big fan of SGM. I buy it by the case (not all for myself lol) to give as gifts. Everyone I have given it to really likes it. I think it is a excellent product, and, I am glad that Bethenny has done well from it.

      • I bought my first bottle on a whim because I usually on like Strawberry Margarita’s- and I also didn’t want to feed the machine by buying housewifes stuff…but I am glad I did. It’s actually pretty tasty. I’d buy Ramona’s wine because I like Pinot- and as of now, I like her despite her faults. But I won’t be buying Teresa os Melissa’s drink.

        • lovemamaearth says:

          That’s good to know. I have a get together to take something to in August. SGM will be it. 🙂

In regards to Mob Wifes, I had my husband cracking up because I was saying how after the fight with Dirita and Karen, Karen look a mess but Dirita still had every hair in place; If I were Karen, I don’t know what would bother me more, getting my ass kicked or the other chick still managing to look hot after doing it.

    • We Can Never Be Friends says:

      I keep watching the fight again because it’s so funny. Renee on her back with her girdle in the air. LMAO And yes, Drita is absolutely stunning!…even after a fight where she’s so enraged she blacked out. Everything about the show fascinates me. Their sorta understanding morals and ethics, the accents! I always thought that accent in movies was, well I dunno what, just not real. “youz guys” “tawk” etc. I still don’t get what Karen is pissed about and like Adgirl said no wonder Drita wanted to kick her ass cuz it’s so frustrating.

      • Adgirl says:

        The girdle/spanx whatever of Renee’s cracked me up. I kept waiting for JZ to tweet “Renee, call me so I can send you my new SKWEEZ granny panties. Lets have lunch. Luv U!”

    (name delted) @CindyBarshop Hi, just wanted to ask, why are you letting Jill fight your battles for you? Shouldn’t you be the one to post that letter?

    CindyBarshop @(name deleted) I never requested anything; if I wanted something posted, I would post it. P.S. Love your avatar!

    (name deleted) @CindyBarshop Thank you! You might want to talk to Jill, b/c she is claiming that you want her to post it. 🙂

  57. WindyCityWondering says:

    We have watched Jill over the past year do many things that would be considered bullying. Tomorrow the battle gets underway and I hope bloggers are prepared to return fire – it would be nice to have blogs, such as this one, have a list of links to Jill more notorious examples of cyberbullying – like Susan of Amazon fame getting outed, of the nasty tweets she sends, of LisaNewEngland hatched job on Ramona (considering Jill touted this as a HW love blog) and a timeline so those interested can see that she has been honing her craft for quite a while. She should be shown for the hypocrite she truly is and for the apologies she never means and for the damage she does to her castmates families/livelihoods.

      I pitched this idea to Q 2 or 3 days ago, hopefully tomorrow’s blog or the day after the thursday episode will have all that information in it. I’m sure there will be an influx of viewers after the next episode of #rhony so it would be a great idea to have their bullet points – with links to the blogs that discussed her egregious misconducts – at the ready. it should stop a troll in their tracks lol

    Wait, if you do, I would tell this blogger what a cowasrd she is to be hiding under a persona who isn’t her. Other words, comment in Lynn’s favor.

  62. former @tweeloco IS A COWARD says:

    I have a question.
    This national unfollow day of twitter on Jill. How does this work? Because, people who follow Lynn is blocked. I don’t understand. Sorry, havn’t beenreading blogs, it’s summer, always out side now in the sun.
    I got blocked before I even followed lynn a year ago for telling Lynn I liked her blog. IS there a twitter account that is promoting this?

    • Hi, there.
      Jill typically blocks people just for following Lynn but for some reason I was impervious to this for a long time until I came up with #UNfollowJIllzarin. Now I am blocked, not all of Jill’s followers are fans or follow Lynn so i was hoping they would drop Jill before she could drop them. For people who are blocked, you can unfollow Jill in spirit by tweeting #UNfollowJillzarin and hoping it trends.
      There is no unfollow Jill twitter account but someone did start a facebook account.

      • former @tweeloco IS A COWARD says:

        I will never follow Jill. BUT since I’m blocked and haven’t been tweeting much, maybe we all can just make up accounts (NOT TO HARASS) CALM DOWN PEOPLES LOL) and not tweet #UnfollowZarin and not follow Lynn and follow Jill and unfollow her on the 30th? I don’t know, just thinking how I can help or throw ideas out.

  63. error404 says:

    OT, but I wanted to get some opinions. Plus, if Countless Lulu is lurking, it might tempt her to post.

    I was reading an interview in Smithsonian magazine with Judith Martin aka “Miss Manners” and she was going off on how rude people are today and said the most major etiquette problem today was “blatant greed”, going on tho explain that people are so “Scheming to get money from others” that they have pot luck dinners and gift registries.

    Pardon? Huh? Andawhatta? Excuse me?

    I can kinda see what she’s saying about pot lucks, although I think they are fine in certain situations, but blatant greed… it’s that a little OTT just because you were asked to bring a covered dish? And what’s her beef with registries? Accepting a bunch of crap you hate is “polite”, but telling people which particular crib mobile you want is “scheming”? Or perhaps people should just hide the kid away in a closet for years, for fear of seeming too “greedy” should others feel the need to send a gift. Is she on crack?

    • MAMAZ says:

      Is this a recent interview? With the economy the way it is I don’t see anything wrong with Pot Luck dinners. It’s a nice way for friends to get together without one family having to foot the bill. And if your friends are good cooks and bakers it’s a fun way to let everyone shine.
      Gift registries aren’t exactly new. I want to buy the couple getting married or the new parents a gift they need and want. I don’t know why her knickers are in a twist about either of these.

      • Error404 says:

        Yes, this month

      • DarkSonnet says:

        Agree. Much ado about nothing.

      • FLG says:

        Hubs and I love pot luck and progressive dinners. In today’s busy world it allows us to get together with friends and helps share the workload. Plus we get to taste many new and interesting dishes that we wouldn’t prepare ourselves. Miss Manners was having a really bad day that day. I wonder who/what got her knickers in a twist?

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Isn’t there a specific context she’s reacting too? Like people throwing an expensive wedding and dinner and then asking the guests to buy their meal or contribute to the meal in some way. Or children’s over the top birthday parties with a gift registry of quite expensive items. Stuff like that? I think that sort of behavior has been talked about for years where people just come off as grasping. I’d guess that’s what she was reacting to.

    • buffywood says:

      What is fun too is to have a pot luck dinner and ask the person to bring copies of the recipe for what they made. I don’t look at these are greedy, just the opposite… a way to share.

  64. Nancy says:

    Re: The Casey trial…I think she’s going down.
    Wow, a death penalty case. So sad.

    • error404 says:

      Good! Well, not about the DP which I’m against, but about a sentence. Sorry, but already I was sick of all the “it’s so obvious she’s guilt, but our stupid system will let her walk because there is no justice, blah blah blah” articles.

      • Nancy says:

        I’ve only started to get what this trial is about but what does the issue of Casey’s dad sexually abusing her have to do with Casey killing her own daughter?

        • Sam says:

          The defense attorney argued in his opening statement that the little girl drowned accidentally in the family pool, that Casey’s father ordered her to cover up what happened, and that Casey complied because as an abuse victim she’d been trained to do whatever her abuser said. Talk about a crazy theory! There’s no evidence of the abuse, no evidence that Casey’s dad was the type of person to cover something like this up or had any reason to cover it up, and no evidence that he knew the little girl was dead prior to being told about the discovery of her body. The defense has also provided no explanation as to why Casey would be partying right after her daughter “drowned” (other than his suggestion that abuse victims often act strangely) or why duct tape would be on the body of a “drowning victim.”

          • Kerry Okie says:

            The defense attorney knows he can’t win. He’s grasping at straws to keep his client off death row. It’s like he’s saying Casey is messed up because of her up-bringing and she can’t help it, so have a little mercy. I don’t think she deserves mercy, but I do believe that family is/was really effed up, and I honestly think her parents, as imperfect as they are, as we all are, have suffered enough. This is a no win for everybody.

            • Sam says:

              I agree, but I don’t think it’s right for the defense attorney to make Casey’s father suffer the way he has. It’s a pretty disgusting approach.

              I read somewhere online that this attorney had problems passing the bar exam, that he’s only been practicing a few years, and that this is his first death penalty case. It shows.

    • error404 says:

      OT again, but I jsut saw your post form yesterday Re; Debi T. LOL I guess I have “the gift”. Hear that Andy! Now book me on a HW show and I’ll tell them their futures! I see a disagreement with a loved on ahead for Jill, trouble between sisters Kim and Kyle, and at least one HW will get divorced before the year is out.

      • Nancy says:

        Wasn’t that weird? Did you think Debi was rude to Witt during the medal ceremony? (I sure did) Speaking of 1988 I just watched G & G gold medal program. It made me sad as I knew that day Katia’s feeling for Sergi started. He died from undiagnosed HTN (high blood pressure). One little pill a day would have saved him. One would think the Soviet Union would have medical care for their athletes like an annual physical.

        • error404 says:

          Yeah, but Surya in 94 was off the hook LOL. I loved Debi’s talking heads because they were so “no..no…no…no… just stop talking!” probably only Nancy could trump her. LOL

          • Nancy says:

            I felt like slapping Surya that day. Go back and look at her entries into her jumps. She goes on the flat of the blade and thats why he has problems landing them. Her mother was the worst stage mom on earth. I loved the fact that they made her step onto the podium. I think that was the first time a skater ever did that.

    Jill is her worse enemy. She does not “get it” and will continue to make PR mistakes over and over again…to our delight. She cannot help herself and with each tweet, blog, and facebook comments she continues to show who she really is. The sick need to “win” and destroy anyone she feels has slighted her is scary. She tried to slay Bethenny and it didn’t work, it pretty much backfired. She tried to destroy Alex and Simon, it backfired and fans started to really love Alex. This season she attempted to destroy Romana. Yet again, it didnt work. Jill will never learn. Each and everyone of these women above now know who they are dealing with. I feel sorry for Ally and Bobby. They seem really sweet, so it is only natural for them to try to protect her, even at her worse. JIll knows people respect Bobby, so that’s why she is trying to drag him into this mess. Once the camera stops rolling……what will she have left?

  69. MAMAZ says:

    I think I know what JZ and Bawby’s new business venture is going to be.
    Dr. Oz did a show recently about the HCG diet. We all know JZ is Oprah obsessed so I’m sure she’s watching Dr. Oz. And didn’t Bawby, or Jill”s assistant posing as Bawby, just tweet that he lost 20 lbs in 2 weeks?
    I think JZ and Bawby will be marketing their own line of homeopathic HCG, which is bought at vitamin stores and contains no hormones, or endorsing someone elses.
    If I’m right the Zarin’s should consider carefully before getting involved with this. The HCG diet is extremely controversial. The diet claims huge fat losses in weeks but is based on a 500 calorie diet along with prescription injections or drops. Or the non hormone over the counter drops. But some people have suffered hair loss and heart problems.
    There are apparently already lots of products out there. We know Jill likes to jump on other people’s band wagons so it seems like a reasonable assumption to me.

    • Nancy says:

      There isn’t any HCG in the drops. Any diet of 500 calories will equal weight loss. This is a horrible way to loose weight.

    • Brilliant! It completely explains why the man who rarely speaks is suddenly sharing personal info that no one cares (or asked) about.

      • MAMAZ says:

        I agree it’s a terrible way to lose weight. Bawby probably went to his Dr. and had the real HCG injections. Still very controversial but at least done under a doctors care. But they may try to hawk the fake crap using his weight loss as an example.

        • MAMAZ says:

          If I’m right I want an electronic cigarette and admission into the soothsayers club!

            Mamaz_ I’ve been thinking since I watched Bethenny selling successfully her Skinny Girl Margarita, that Jill must be kicking Bawby’s a…’s as well as her-self’s because they were friends with B while B was trying to find somebody to believe in her product and being partners with her… Jill could have cashed on Bethenny’s idea when B believed in Jz’s friendship… remember 2Nd. Season final? Skinny Girl Margarita was just right there behind the bar… Who would know? 120M idea! How much is that in diamonds? Lol.

            • FLG says:

              More and bigger diamonds than Bawby can buy!!!!!! Bethenny had on lovely VERY LARGE South Sea Pearls on the Piers Morgan interview. Earrings and ring to match! Very nice and tasteful. Nothing like the hubcaps and moths that Countess SBHH wears.

    • T-Rex says:

      This is a horrible diet supplement. Even Oprah doesn’t take it, look at her of late, she is not on the “diet” track. Anyone can lose weight on ultra-low calorie diets, but they don’t work long term. 500 calories/day is way too little to live on and your body goes into Ketosis and basically “feeds” on itself, it creates short term weight loss but long term issues. I used to be over 200 pounds and a size 20, I tried everything to lose weight. What lost the weight, learning that weight gain has to do with “fork to mouth disease” and you have to consume a good level of calories, I joined Weight Watchers and added exercise, I am now down to 135 which is still a bit high for my height, but at my age is still pretty good.

      • Cusi77 says:

        Congratulations T-Rex! I have the tendency of having high levels of cholesterol so I need to be very carefully with my diet and exercise. I do The Zone diet as a way to live. My BIL did it to loose weight and he lost 215Lbs. in 18 months. I have read great successful stories about The Zone diet.

        • AZ Girl says:

          That is great Cusi. I think the premise 30/20/30 is good. As long as it works for you that all you can ask for.

    • AZ Girl says:

      It has been clinically proven that it has nothing to do with the HCG but the 500 calorie diet. I had a woman in the gym that I go to ask me about it and I told her was dangerous especially for cardiac patients (which she was). I asked her to talk to her cardiologist before starting the diet. She did not and 1 week into it her husband was dialing 911 because she had an accelerated heart rate and passed out in her home. I have seen a lot of diets come and go over 25 years in the fitness industry and this is the dumbest diet ever.

      • Cusi77 says:

        AZgirl_ What is your opinion about Dr. Sears Zone diet?

        • AZ Girl says:

          I am assuming this is the “Zone” diet? If it is, I only know that the protein supplement bars are good. I use them when lifting heavy weights. They digest easily.

          As far as the diet itself and results I don’t know enough about it to comment. I am a fan of Weight Watchers. I have seen results from many women on Weight Watchers. It is healthy, easy and there is accountability with the weekly meetings. Dieters need to understand that what they incorporate in their lives has to be sustainable. Drinking shakes and taking pills are not sustainable.

      • boston02127 says:

        This is a bit off topic but I thought I’d share it. My friends mother always drinks water with fresh lemon cut up in her glass. I read about it and have been doing the same for about 2 weeks. It’s not bad tasting. This is the link I found about the benifits of it, it says it’s even good for your skin.

    Very Funny! Our local Afternoon drivetime Radio show here did a piece on the Lumann song and Video. Okay, they wanted to know if RHNY was really employing DragQueens(sorry for the major offense to good DragQueens everywhere!) for their show on Bravo. They were convinced that the video was a ripoff of the movie Too Wong Fu, since clearly the singer was not a woman(their words) and the ‘ugly stepsisters from Cinderella”(their words) were there in the video too, and they speculated as to whether they were also from the Drag community(again to all DragQueens everywhere, you would never look that awful, and you can lipsynch correctly)!

    OT/The Sneeze:

    They walked in tandem, each of the students filing into the already crowded auditorium. With their rich maroon gowns flowing and the traditional caps, they looked almost as grown up as they felt.
    Dads swallowed hard behind broad smiles, and Moms freely brushed away tears.

    This class would NOT pray during the commencements, not by choice, but because of a recent court ruling prohibiting it. The principal and several students were careful to stay within the guidelines allowed by the ruling. They gave inspirational and challenging speeches, but no one mentioned divine guidance and no one asked for blessings on the graduates or their families.
    The speeches were nice, but they were routine until the final speech received a standing ovation.

    A solitary student walked proudly to the microphone. He stood still and silent for just a moment, and then, it happened. All 200 students, every single one of them, suddenly SNEEZED.The student on stage simply looked at the audience and said, ‘GOD BLESS YOU’ And he walked off the stage…The audience exploded into applause. This graduating class had found a unique way to invoke God’s blessing on their future with or without the court’s approval.

However, just an idea, becasue I would like to help. How about since we are blocked from her anyways, how about we make up accounts, NOT TO HARASS PPL CALM DOWN LOL, not follow Lynn, not tweet from the new account #unfollowJillzarin and follow eachother, then we unfollow her on the 30th so her followers can see what we are doing. Since Jill is playing a game,we can play right back? Just an idea.

    • Adgirl says:

      I personally wouldn’t do it… she won’t care if a few of us start and stop in one day as symbolic protest.
      She mysteriously had a huge increase in followers the past few weeks .. a LOT of new followers. Like 8000. Her team might be buying them or they might be real. Who knows. Even if everyone who reads IHJZ quit (if we weren’t already blocked) I don’t think it would be a big differencel overall to her number of followers.

        It will be interesting to see if they continue to “buy” twitter followers. From what I have seen, you have to pay a MONTHLY fee for them. So, you don’t really buy them……you LEASE them. HMMMM that just might be right up Jill’s Ferrari, I mean alley.

    There are no short cuts to good health. I had an eating disorder as a teen. I had to rethink my whole relationship with food. Now I don’t try to be a certain size. I try to be healthy, make sure I get all the protein and other nutrients I need to operate at maximum potential. I used to want to look great. Now I want to feel great.

        I’ve been a lifetime member of Weight Watchers since the 1980s, but now I’m on Jenny Craig and I like it much, much better. And by counting calories rather than points, I’m finding it easier to eat out while still losing weight, especially since many restaurants now put calorie counts on their menus.

      Ok OK, Holy shit you guys I havent read todays board yet oh and by the way hello everyone I’m so confused and puzzled I mean I’m being so very serious right now. What the hell is going on with all the attacking Melissa on the Bravo board? Today not a good day for me crazy day at work and I really like Melissa and first thing I did was to see if she posted her blog and was happy to see it because of the way people have been responding I was hoping that she didnt get scared off and I’m shocked..

      It;s got to be kids perhaps Ashely’s is having people post crazy things, I dont know it just makes no sense. The people are confusing Melissa for Teresa I just dont get it. Bravo suddenly has no problem letting shit go now for some reason but watch my post not go through to her that I left and of course it was a nice positive one. A person does not have to be a brain to watch this show and with just a little common sense know whats going on here. Do they forget the crazy that Teresa is? Teresa’s has money problems and it;s her own damn fault and BULLSHIT IMO she knew all along. It seems like there is a campaign underway to try and get to both Melissa and Kathy its very very weird. What do you guys think, I’m curious. And a big favor to ask, I dont have twitter could someone let her know about this board. In my post to her, I told her that her adult fans were on another board I didnt mention by name because of Bravo they probably wouldnt post it and they may still not but I tried to let her know.

        I don’t like melissa one bit and I am an adult….a 31 year old adult. I also like to think I have a brain and also believe I have a bit of common sense.

        • Savannah001 says:

          Suzieq, I didnt mean to offend you at all or anyone I just can’t believe the number of posts they just dont make sense to me just going after this girl hard.

          • Suzieq says:

            I get what u r saying about the bravo comments. I just don’t understand why so many ppl like M just because they font like T. There doesn’t seem to be that much to like about M.
            Just like I never liked Cat and if by some miracle she gets on NY, I’m still not going to like her just because she is mean to the countless (who I REALLY don’t like).
            We might not agree on the NJ ladies….but I bet we could be BFF’s over hating the Jillzilla!!! 🙂

          • I think Melissa is horrible. I don’t trust anyone who would sell out family for a little bit of notoriety . But I think Teresa is horrible too. When I speak out against Mel, it’s not in defense of Teresa per say but out of my own sense of right and wrong.

      • nathania says:

        I think Teresa is behind most of the vitriol directed at Melissa. Even Danielle Staub didn’t inspire this kind of rabid hatred.

        What’s interesting is that the only person I can think of that does is Tamra, and that is after several years and some pretty far out behavior. Melissa is practically comatose compared to Tamra, yet there is an insane amount of vitriol directed at her.

        I think Teresa is far more unstable than most people realize even without all the evidence. Someone who acts THAT insane not just in public but on camera for the whole world to see, there is NO TELLING what they will do behind the scenes.

        And I believe that the ONLY reason Teresa is acting civilized and trying to come off as mature and peacemaker-ish right now is because her dad is ill and she and Joey are in competition for whatever money there is to be inherited. And I do believe there is quite a bit to be inherited, because someone taught these numskulls how to fleece everyone under the sun and live in mansions of marble and have master bedroom sized closets of tacky clothes. Someone taught Joey Gorga and Joe Giudice everything they know, and they only common denominator is the Gorga father.

        • nathania says:

          also I watch HGTV all the time and they are always going over to Italy with couples buying villas in those small Italian towns and those houses like the Guidice family have rarely go for more than 100k U.S. so I don’t think the Guidices have any money.

    Vicki is on the show Clean House, “Messiest House in the Country”. Yep….she’s a real star! Get on the horn Jill, you can be next to star on such a great show.

  82. Carson Griffith is a writer for the NY Daily News gossip column Gatecrasher. She is friendly with Jill and Darren. She tweeted this:

    CarsonGriffith: @Jillzarin @CountessLuAnn @kellybensimon pick up a copy of @NYDNGatecrasher tomorrow 🙂

    I wonder who is going to be the target in tomorrow’s column.


    • MAMAZ says:

      No @CindyBarshop?

    • nathania says:

      wow, she looks like a very dignified, intelligent person. Not.
      So much better when Ben Widdicombe was doing it. He’s the one that wrote the story on Caroline in the Daily Beast, and interviewed the D.A. who went on record saying it was ‘very well known’ Tiny Manzo was mafia. I had some experience with him a few years ago and I am really interested to see if people will go out of their way to mislead the press about this blog. What I learned from the experience with Ben Widdicombe, because of an article appeared in the Gatecrasher when he was writing it, was that an innaccurate or baseless story can really damage their credibility, even as gossip columnists, and they will back off of it as soon as it proves to have no legs. So if JIll is going around lying to these press people about the nature of this blog and drumming up rumors of anti-semitism that isn’t there, they are going to be royally peeved at her for having been associated with a story that has zero legs and might even contradict her to make themselves look credible. It’s their reputation on the line, something she would not understand being insulated from reality by obscene wealth.

      • quincyil says:

        We all read this blog and share in the discussion every day. I think these charges ae unfounded like the amazon attack on the top book reviewer.

        We have people of all walks of life here sharing happily.

    • Pantry viewer says:

      Felt good to unfollow her. But I’m sure her pr people have paid for plenty of replacement followers. How sad to have to pay for friends. Can yup imagine how much money Bobby has had to pay for fake followers so she can pretend to be a celebrity? And how much money he has wasted on her pretend copycat businesses? Think of the money that could have gone to charity. Sad and desperate.

  83. boston02127 says:

    Is anyone watching Clean House? This house is beyond discusting. And for some reason OC Vicki is there, why would anyone want to be on this show? Their house is so dirty and gross I wouldn’t even want my cat hanging around with their cat.

    • boston02127 says:

      I can’t watch this show. They’re going to clean the pigs house for free. This is not everyday messy, it’s crud and filth. The bathroom is filled with…I don’t know what. Ugh. I bet if they go back in 5 months her house will be a pigsty again. I’d rather do homework than watch. Good night.

  84. AZ Girl says:

    @Savannah001 this is crazy. We all came over to Lynn’s blog because Bravo would not posts negative comments about anyone. Melissa blog goes up and almost 300 negative comments are being posting. Who is minding the Bravo store??? Andy is probably in the Hamptons drunk and this has to be some kind of joke. There has NEVER been this type of FALL OUT on a housewife ever on Bravo’s blog page. This is so unfair. I am not a Melissa fan but the posting rules should apply to all housewives not post nice for housewife a b & c and d get’s hammered? FAIL

    • MAMAZ says:

      Teresa brought big ratings with the table flip and Poshe fashion show fight. Bravo loves her. But the attention she got for her legal problems wasn’t good. So they bring in Melissa, encourage her to fight with her SIL while advising Teresa to play nice. Then they throw Mel to the wolves and Teresa is golden again.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      This is what Bravo does, we saw the exact same thing on Alexis Bellino’s blog last season when she was the new girl. She got hammered on her blog and people were posting on her Facebook page telling her that they posted positive comments on Bravotv.com but they weren’t being approved and posted. They use these blogs to sway public opinion of a housewife depending on how they want them to appear. Anyone reading the blogs and comments think, WOW, everyone hates that housewife, I suppose I should too. (at least that is what Bravo seems to be hoping will happen) Unfortunately I think it works sometimes, luckily the folks that post here are too smart for that.

      • Kats2 says:

        Andy is laughing at all of them. You can tell he secretly loves it all. Crazier the better.

      • BambiBaby22 says:

        ITA, Lynn, Bravo has always done this. On WWHL, those polls aren’t just for fun, they are there in order for Bravo to gauge the viewers’ thoughts.
        We as viewers THINK we formed our own opinions by watching things that actually happened but really we are being manipulated by Bravo to like the particular HW bravo wants us to like. That is why it is good to keep up with their shenanigans OFF screen.

    • Savannah001 says:

      Exactly AZ Girl ! It was if people were just waiting in a big line to respond, I;ve seen a lot of past blogs getting a lot of responses not recently but never ever in such a short period of time.

      Bravo can be and has been very very shady they took a post of mine deleted what I actually said in my post AND they added one sentence I love you Jill, and I’d never say that LOL. I couldnt even believe it but they did it. I didnt even know it until more than a day later and I freaked out about it. Luckly some of the ladies here saw my orginal post and then saw that it was deleted and that I loved Jill appeared in place of the orignal.

    • I wonder if they are “punishing her’ for having her blog in late.

  85. We Can Never Be Friends says:

    I’m a huge Melissa fan. I agree with every jot and tittle RCH put in her blog.

    Luann is the biggest drag queen in house wife history. She should kill the person who styled her for that video. Jill is a moron and can’t even act like she knows french and poor silly vile Kelly this is the best modeling gig you booked since your divorce.

    hi everyone- i’m still catching up on comments from blogs ago, can’t believe the casino going on around here and again, kadooz to Q and Lynn for your fabulous shout outs from last week, and hopefully tomorrow x2. So many new names commenting, i dont know them! Great for Lynn

    Can anyone direct me to where on the blog this ‘letter’ is talked about regarding Cindy and Carol? Is this the drag queen that Howie is dating- Cindy’s doppelganger? Where can i find this conversation?
    oh and #2- what on earth is an Asshat? I get that picture comes up every few blogs, from Rich of DC – to me it looks like a woman’s thighs/ vagina covered with a hat on her hips- can someone just tell me what that is?

    • I believe the Carol letter was mentioned on Jill’s facebook, but has now been deleted, if I understand all the comments up thread correctly.

      • Happymouth says:

        Jill posted a poll on facebook asking her followers if they wanted her to post Carols letter about Ramona. Then she tweeted and said that Carol did not want the letter posted because she was afraid of the backlash. I posted the tweets and her post on facebook and so did ” I can’t stand the toxity ” and Jill deleted the post on facebook and twitter. However , the posts are up thread. Someone also posted that Jill stated that Cindy (Barshop) said that she wanted the letter posted, however Cindy denied that in a tweet ( also posted upthread ) WHEW!!

        • And this is why I love this site. II can feel safe going to work and not checking anything online, but knowing it’ll all be summarized for me when I get home. Teamwork.

    • I posted a link to a blog that has screen shots of the Facebook comments that Jill deleted earlier today. This is the person who tweeted Cindy and asked her about the letter. The tweets are also featured in the blog.


    • She forgot to delete her tweet:

      Hi FLG,
      Anderson Cooper (my boyfriend) just made such a fool of LuMan.
      It was great. Someone needs to tweet LuMan and ask her if she saw it.

      Are you married yet? Could you go to NY and get married or do you have to live in NY?

      • FLG says:

        I’m not sure yet. It might be possible to get married in NY, but Flori-duh wouldn’t recognize the marriage, So it wouldn’t really solve our issues regarding estate planning, social security, etc. I’m happy that NY passed Marriage Equality. I hope it spread like wildfire across the nation. We may go there and get married just for us. We may even consider moving there. Hubs went to University in NY. He’s done all of his graduate work in South Flori-duh. (my spelling is a protest against the state) When we become first class citizens here, I will return to the correct spelling.

        • FLG says:

          • FLG says:

            I’m not sure he would like the winters, but he liked it while he was living there. I don’t think a wedding/marriage that doesn’t grant all state and federal laws will take much of the sting away. When it comes to citizenship, we want full equality, nothing more, nothing less. I don’t think leaving it up to the states will accomplish equality. I think this is going to be have to tackled on a Federal level. Modern Americans are too mobile for it to work any other way. People are transferred from state to state because of employment everyday. Think of how that would affect a straight marriage. Oh, you’re married in NY, but not in NC. or Flori-duh or any combination of the other 47 states. Nightmare.

            I am ready for tomorrow (actually today now) If Jillzy’s numbers don’t drop like a rock, I hope it means that Bawby spends wads and wads and more wads of money “leasing” twitter followers to keep her numbers up. I’d love to be a fly on that wall. Buzz Buzz. 8)

        • Error404 says:

    Secret Camera Catches “Predator” host cheating
    To Catch a Predator Host Reportedly Caught Cheating On His Wife With Former Intern

    Chris Hansen, the 51-year-old NBC anchor best-known as the host of the Dateline series To Catch a Predator, has allegedly been caught in a web of his own uncouth sexual behavior. On Predator, of course, producers posed as underage girls or boys offering sex on the Internet. When underage sex-seeking men met up with the fake kids, Hansen and his camera crew — plus the police, usually — would confront the unsuspecting men, reading them the sexually explicit text they had typed a few hours ago until the viewer starts thinking, “We don’t really want to hear this, and that guy obviously already knows what he just said.”

    Anyhow, the National Enquirer claims to have found Hansen, who’s married with two kids, cheating on his wife with Kristyn Caddell, a Florida journalist and former NBC intern 20 years Hansen’s junior. Cameras reportedly caught Hansen and Caddell sharing a a romantic dinner at the Ritz-Carlton in Manalapan, before spending the night at her Palm Beach apartment. Hansen has allegedly been cheating on his age-appropriate wife for the past few months. Herewith, an abridged transcript of Hansen’s supposed meet-cute with Caddell:

    The pair met in March, when they were both out with friends at the Blue Martini Lounge in Palm Beach. Miss Caddell introduced herself to Hansen in the VIP area, and “there was an immediate physical attraction between them,” according to the source. The source alleged: “Chris and Kristyn got on so well that she ended up going back to his room at The Colony Hotel in Palm Beach – and later boasted to pals about staying the night with him.” According to the source: “Chris sends Kristyn flowers and tells her he loves her, but he still doesn’t seem all that motivated to leave his wife for her.

    Before you slam on your keyboard shouting “hypocrite” at the top of your lungs, pointing at a man famous for proclaiming his moral and legal superiority over perverts, remember he’s still not, um, statutorily raping anyone.

    Very clever comments, Lynn, as always! I’m a little late to the party on this column, but wanted to say that I, too, was tickled pink by the RealityTea piece, and, for once, Jill’s minions did not seem to have monopolized the Comments section. Nothing succeeds like the facts, and the fact that they printed the actual “mean tweets” instead of just alluding to them, was journalistic genius, IMO! It’s bed for me, too, and can not wait for tomorrow. Good night, Happy Tribe!

  103. Sonjafan says:

    Had a glass of wine and decided to view Lumanns video – yuck! Jill looked ridiculous in all the scenes, especially when she was trying to bop to the music. The only decent view of Lumann was at the beginning when she was totally made up in model type makeup and full hairdo. But the non-singing – what was that. How can someone put something that ridiculous out in public and brag – she is really full of herself. On top of that the new blonde do is horrific on her, doesn’t match her coloring at all. Hope the unfollowing goes beyond expectations tomorrow or on the East Coast today! Hurray Lynn!!!!!!!

  104. nathania says:

    I figured out what Luann’s song sounds like to me, the old Good Vibrations song from Marky Mark, if you wait 25 seconds into the video where the piano starts, that’s like the backbone of Luann’s song… there isn’t much more to it than that and it’s easy for the similarities to get buried under Loleatta Holloway’s unbelievable singing on this song (I know it references one of her hits)…she passed away recently, rest in peace Ms Holloway…it’s worth watching this just to remember that amazing, heavenly vocal, so thanks Luann for the memories…

I thought I saw it before..Do you know where it is/? I think she kicked me off her newsletter super secret blog since I didn’t get it last week.

  108. Amber...Real Wife says:

    Good Morning All. I’ve been gone a few days as i’ve officially become a caregiver to my elderly dad. My mom is in the hospital battling a pneumonia and my dad is staying with me. My days are spent traveling to the hospital with son and dad, making sure my mom is okay and nurses see a family presence. At home I have dad in house, checking he takes his diabetes meds and making sure he eats. I’ve cooked more in 3 days than I did all last week! LOL My dad refuses to eat leftovers, has champagne tastes on a beer budget, insisting he only eats certain brands like Tropicana over MinuteMaid, Sabrett and Nathans over BallPark, BoarsHead Pastrami over Ham etc. He “claims” he doesn’t eat certain foods that he is NOTORIOUS for cooking and eating! Everyday i’ve purchased fastfood when returning from the hospital as he wants to eat that over my cooking which he loved when he was just a guest. When I told my mom he wasn’t eating certain foods she, proving she’s still got spirit, said “He’ll spend your money if you let him, but he’ll eat what I give him. Make him cook his own food and you’ll see how quick he’ll start eating yours!” After shopping and buying his brands, and reminding him he DOES eat certain things, I told him he could have the kitchen to prepare his meals. He backtracked, took a nap, woke up and finally ate my food! 🙂

    I’m trying to keep smiling but please pray for my Mom and Dad. She’s 72 and he’s 80 and i’m overwhelmed and it’s only day 4! I’ve got to start my day now. Please keep them in your prayers.


    • boston02127 says:

      Amber—I’m so sorry for all that you are going thru. There is nothing you can do but take each day at a time and deal with that one day. That’s all I could do when my mom was so sick or I’d get so overwhelmed. I know how stressful things are when you’re taking care of someone you love. You and your family are in my prayers. God Bless. ♥

    • quincyil says:

      I have some people like this here. I hope you mom gets better.


    • Debbie says:

      My heart goes out to you. Earlier this year my Mom’s partner was hospitalized for 7 weeks and with him away, her mild case of Alzheimer’s accelerated and I stayed with her until marty got home. i still have to care for her but now have a health aide come in daily so i can stay at home with my family.. It is incredibly hard being a care taker, emotionally I was a wreck. (reading blog and comments help lol ). I never wished I had a brother or sister as much as I do now. I absolutely hate being the one responsible for making decisions regarding her future.
      I hope your mom improves soon and you and your parents can resume normal day to day activities. You’ll be in my thoughts along with your mom and dad. I hope you have friends and family near by to help you find a reason to smile daily.

    • butterisafruit says:

      I’ve taken care of both my parents too. It’s exhausting. It’s the cooking and cleaning, plus making sure their meds are right. And now your mom is in the hospital. So you’re torn between two locations. And you’re totally responsible for BOTH. They become terribly fussy. I think it’s their way of controlling the situation. They will run you ragged, and they don’t even know they’re doing it.
      My mother had Alzheimers and my dad had his aorta replaced, the surgery left him paralyzed from the hips down. The work is never ending.
      What I would do, is yell at the moon. I’d go outside around midnight just to breath. My only advice is to let some things go. You can’t be perfect.
      My heart is with you,
      Mary Ellen

      Oh, Amber, we’ve all either been there or will be there some day. And someday we’ll be the fussy old parent. It’s hard, but you’ll eventually look back and be glad you could be there for them. I agree with Butter that control is the issue. As their health declines, they don’t have much control over their lives, so they exercise control where they can — fussing at you. Try to find humor where you can. (The battle of the food that you just won is kinda funny.) Make your dad accountable when possible. (Telling him to make his own food is good.) Aim for good enough and not perfection. (There will be complaints, but he can do it himself better if he wants — and I bet he won’t.) Get away when you can. (midnight – moon – good) Can you give husband or son tasks to help out too? Consider repackaging food to deal with the brand issue. And remember what we’ve learned from Sonja — water off a duck’s back. Hang in. You’re doing heroic service! I’ll keep you in my thoughts.

    • Thinking of you Amber.I hope everyone is medically well- I know you said you are feeling overwhelmed. I remember hearing once that God doesn’t give us burdens but rather he gives us opportunities to grow and to know ourselves. I know you can find the strength within you, a lesser person would have snapped already 🙂

  109. IndianaHousewife says:

    Amber, please know that you are not alone in this. I have a different but similar situation with my mother. I agree with Butter, the best thing you can do for yourself is to let the small stuff go. I have learned that I can not clean my bathroom as long as no one sticks to the floor and things are not growing in the corners!

    The work is hard no doubt about it, but I try to remind myself that really it is very much like when I was born and my mother worked very hard to meet my needs. Now it is my turn to return the favor. Best Wishes.

    • Debbie says:

      Reading all the comments to Amber has me in tears. Care giving is so difficult. It is so nice to come here and be able to vent, empathize and try to comfort.
