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!

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.
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..
