I Hate Jill Zarin           Happy 4th of July  Real Housewives of New Jersey / Celebrity Rehab

Happy Birthday USA!  I always look forward the 4th of July, family, BBQ’s and fireworks, what’s not to love!

Please join me in welcoming new contributor to the blog, “Star” (not her real name), she’s recapped Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew for us.  But first…

The Real Housewives of New Jersey  By LynnNChicago

No new episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey last night but they did play the last few episodes again and I caught a few things that I missed the first time.  I think with all the sex talk some of the other things that happened fell through the cracks of our discussion.

Teresa and Melissa’s sit down talk didn’t really go all that well.  Both ladies expressed their skepticism afterward in their talking head interviews and really Melissa did a lot of eye rolling while Teresa was talking.  Her timing wasn’t great either.  When Teresa said things like, “this is killing my parents”, Melissa did the old eye roll.  She explains this in her blog:

I do want to tell everyone that it might seem like I roll my eyes a lot, but that is not because I don’t want to listen to her, it’s because I’m thinking. I think with my eyes, I always have, so I just wanted to clear that up. I also got a little frustrated when she brings up her brother’s business deals. I don’t see how it has anything to do with our conversation. It’s almost like she’s trying to expose him or something. It had nothing to do with the conversation, so I got a little aggravated. 

Based on the comments on Melissa’s blog, viewers didn’t buy her explanation of the eyeroll.  But then, we know we can’t trust those comments to be representative of anything except what Bravo wants us to think.

I do think it was a low blow for Teresa to bring up some contractor who claims that Joey Gorga owes him money when Teresa sleeps in a home built by dozens of contractors who remain unpaid per their Bankruptcy documents.  I wonder how many of them rolled their eyes watching Teresa on the show.

Melissa goes on to say:

When all of this is over, who will still be here? Family. I really want for both of us to stop and get to a happy place. I think it’s OK to agree to disagree sometimes. I’m not saying we won’t ever go back and forth again, we probably will, but I never want to get back to the place we were.

In contrast, here’s what Teresa had to say about Melissa:

From her eye rolling and conversations afterward with her sister and whoever was “sitting on her shoulder” saying “bullsh-t,” I’m not so sure she feels the same way. I guess only time will tell…

During the conversation Teresa’s talking head interview explains that the first time her parents met Melissa she and Joey got into an argument about another woman calling Joey Gorga and she stormed out of the house with Joey following, the couple apparently never returned that night.  While it isn’t great etiquette to storm out of someone’s house, this is Teresa’s side of the story, I’d love to hear Melissa’s side.

I didn’t talk much (or at all) about Kathy in the blog after the show but we watched as she brought an idea to her husband.  Catering with her fabulous looking desserts sounds like a fantastic idea to me.  Kathy created a beautiful dessert table at the Gorga’s on Thanksgiving and doing something similar for weddings, showers and other parties is a great business idea.  Many caterers don’t offer an extensive dessert menu and party planners would love to have one place to call to ensure their party had a fabulous dessert table.  I’m sure there are others out there but Kathy could certainly make it work.

Kathy’s husband wants to take it a step further and open a restaurant, Kathy’s not too sure and as they look at possible spaces for their new venture, Kathy doesn’t seem all that into the idea.  I think she’d prefer to stick to desserts.  We’ll see what happens…

Bravo has posted two previews for the upcoming episode next Sunday, one is called “Lauren is in Bitch Mode”.  I’m sure she appreciates that, the title came from her very own mother who stated that “Lauren is in bitch mode”.  This sibling rivalry makes absolutely no sense to me, her brothers have moved out and that should make her happy, it is a whole lot easier to enjoy your siblings when you don’t live together.  (in my opinion) Besides, Lauren should be happy to be the only kid left at home, that means she gets all the attention, right?  Apparently not!  Caroline Manzo has no sympathy for her only daughter, she tells us that Lauren is in “bitch mode”.  Nice!


The other preview shows us Joey Gorga building a space for his wife in the basement to sing and record her music.  A booth that he describes as a phone booth with thick insulation to ensure it is sound-proof and a space for the producer’s booth.


We have a new contributor to the blog, Star (not her real name..LOL) has written the recap on the only original programming we had last night (don’t quote me on that)  Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew.  Welcome Star!

 Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew by Star

First of all, let’s take a look at the “cast.” The staff of the Pasadena Recovery Center includes Dr. Drew Pinsky; Bob Forrest, Head Counselor and Program Manager; Shelley Sprague, Residential Treatment Technician and Counselor; Will Smith, Residential Technician and Counselor; Jennifer Gimenez, Residential Technician; and Dr. John Sharp, Psychiatrist.

The rehabbers are:

Amy Fisher – Long Island Lolita who served time in prison for shooting the wife of her much older boyfriend Joey Buttafouco. Currently adult film star. Alcoholic.

Bai Ling – Actress. Alcoholic.

Dwight “Doc” Gooden – Former Major League Baseball player. Cocaine addiction.

Jeremy Jackson – Actor and Singer (Baywatch). Addicted to Steroids, Growth Harmones, supplements and pills.

Jessica “Sugar” Kiper – Struggling Actress (Best known for being on Survivor) . Alcoholic and Marijuana user.

Michael Lohan – Occupation?????. Alcoholic

Sean Young – Actress. Alcoholic

Steven Adler – Musician (Formerly drummer for Guns and Roses). Heroin Addict

In this second episode, Amy, Bai, Jeremy, Michael, and Sean have already checked in.

Check in procedures include Shelly searching everyone’s luggage for contraband. Each room holds two residents. Each resident has an introductory session with Dr. Drew. On the night of Day 1, we find out that Steven Adler will be checking in shortly. This upsets Jennifer because he has been violent to her in a past rehab situation. Shelly calms Jennifer down and Steven apologizes to Jennifer and thanks her for calling the police on him because it made him realize he still needed help. At the start of each day, the residents arise at 7 a.m. and there is a group session.

The next morning Bai does not want to get up and Dr. Drew asks her if she wants to get better. She says yes and he tells her she needs to change and it needs to start now. At group, Bob asks what they want to accomplish there. Steven wants to finish what he started. Michael talks about his Dad being an alcoholic and how he was treated as a kid and then tells about how his alcoholism has affected his kids. Amy explains that the things she did as a child (16 years old) made her the way she is today. She doesn’t show her feelings because people are so superficial. Jeremy relates to her. Dr. Drew says that the purpose of group is that one person’s story can affect others and they need to rely on each other as they fight for sobriety.

On day two, Dwight Gooden checks in. He had everything going for him. He started in the major leagues at age 17 as a pitcher and still holds several major league records. He was suspended twice for using cocaine. He spent time in prison for his drug use. He still uses cocaine, alcohol, and Ambien. Shelly checks him in and asks when was the last time he used. He says not for a while. She gets a urine sample from him and it pops positive for cocaine, which means he has used within the past 72 hours. He will be Jeremy’s roommate. He tells Dr. Drew he is 46 years old, has been using since age 20 and has been to rehab 5 times. Dr. Drew confronts him with his positive drug test and he says “OK.” Dwight then tells Dr. Drew he’s not happy in his own skin and he deals with guilt for what he has done to his family. He needs to forgive himself.

On the evening of day two Amy is freaking out because of the cameras. She leaves the center when Will asks her to give up her phone because phones are not allowed after 9 p.m. The camera follows her outside and she tells them to stop following her. Eventually her manager and husband convince her to come back. She explains that the cameras remind her of all the paparazzi when she was 16. On day three, Bai is still very emotional and has not eaten for three days Dr. Drew had prescribed something for her because he feels she is dealing with psychiatric issues aside from her addiction problem. She refuses to take the medication and cannot be forced to take it. Dr. Drew predicts things will not be good for Bai if she doesn’t take the medication.

It’s funny, but Bai is in full make up and looks pretty good for someone who just woke up. She might be having big problems, but she does have time to apply her make up. Got to look good for those cameras no matter what.

In a one-on-one with Dr. Drew, Amy is blaming the media for the way her life turned out because they wouldn’t leave her alone when she was 16. I guess nobody should have noticed that she knocked on the front door of her lover’s house and shot his wife in the face. I’m not saying she is totally to blame because Joey Buttafouco was the adult in this situation and it seems he got off pretty easy. Amy served six years in prison. Poor Mary Jo Buttafouco still suffers with paralysis on one side of her face. Amy hasn’t even mentioned her so far. She’s constantly walking around in short shorts and very low cut tops. She has been in the adult film business for 6 months and feels that, because of her past, it is her only option. Really, Amy? Or is it the only option that, as you say, pays really good money? Maybe I’m being little too hard on Amy.

Here we go again. Bai Ling doesn’t want to get up the next morning and tells Shelly she’ll be up in 10 minutes. Later she is missing and they see her on the roof. The episode ends with Dr. Drew asking the question “Did she jump?” To be continued……

Excellent Job Star, thanks for the recap!

Until Next Time…

    What’s with the InTouch Weekly mag cover? Is it all just rumor?

    • LynnNChicago says:

      I’m sure it is because the most recent one, I believe said that Teresa was pregnant with a boy…In Touch has some interesting headlines. It was fitting as Teresa blames the show for her breakdown with her brother and Sister in law’s family.

    • Amy Matheson says:

      They are trying for a baby. Maybe. And maybe it’ll be a boy. If they get pregnant. Maybe. Lol.

      • plainviewsue says:

        They never paid the fertility doctor for their last pregnancy, and now they want to go for a fifth? Unbelievable.

        • lovemamaearth says:

          Maybe because they didn’t get a boy? No excuse for not paying bills when one keeps living large.

    • Pghemtchick says:

      If I remember right Tre has had 2 recent InTouch. One describing how fame has split her family & Joe calls her brother a monkey. It’s a pro-Tre spread comparing Melissa to her. Jealousy blah blah blah. The last one I saw was her on the cover with something like “my life without Joe”. It’s a sob story about what her life will be like if he’s convicted. She goes on to talk about how her children know nothing of his legal issues. I put it down after reading that. I’m tired of fame-ho’s not caring about their kids. She’s said Gia is harassed at school about the show. The next breath she’s airing laundry to a magazine. Then she waves a performance enhancing sex toy on the show. Maybe the don’t sell magazines in NJ supermarkets, cuz then her girls and their peers won’t see. If they really don’t know, I hope the check she cashes is worth the teasing and taunting her kids have fallen victim to. Collateral damage in her eyes, I suspect.

      • vilzvet says:

        In Touch is the worst at misleading headlines, by a mile. It is just to get you to buy the rag. Better to just check it out online for the actual “story”.

        • MKValle says:

          yes, In Touch is trash. Life & Style (same publisher) is just as bad….they all emulate The Enquirer, Star and my favorite of all time Weekly World News (who beats them all with the headlines “killer trees stalk America”

    • LynnNChicago says:

      Very cool! Thanks!

      • Nancy says:

        I’m a little bit confused about yesterday.
        Why are people here afraid about being
        sued by Jill? Let her come after us.
        She’s just going to make a complete
        fool out of herself. I am at the point
        of really hating Jill Zarin.

        Happy 4th.

        • lovemamaearth says:

          I think the damage Jill hopes to do t people lie WSL is damaging their reputation. Look what she did to Simon. Look what she tried to do to Ramona and the alcoholic claim. At least that’s what I’ve taken from it. I hope they all counter sue.

        • LynnNChicago says:

          Jill is accusing people of illegal activity which in and of itself is illegal. She’s accused WSL of stalking her, ridiculous! And she’s accused me of threatening her, something she said over a year ago. I never threatened her or her family as she claims. She’s never mentioned either me or WSL by name and I’m sure that is her way of ensuring no one can sue her for libel/slander.

          All of that said any lawsuit over any of this would be absolutely insane, no one here including me or WSL can have any charges against us for something we’ve never done.

          so Jill Zarin, just because you say it, doesn’t make it true! 🙂

          • Nancy says:

            That’s my point. Thank-you.

          • shadowsmom says:

            Lynn you are correct. I discussed this today with people that are both in the legal and financial sectors, some who know the players and Jill has nothing that will enable her to effectively sue anyone over this nonsense (she can sue since anyone can sue anyone but that doesn’t mean she has a case). To think otherwise is silly. She likes to threaten but she made herself a public figure and this comes with the territory.

            The best way to stay out of this nonsense is to not post information or pictures about yourself on the net or involve yourself in other peoples business that has nothing to do wit you (like the Guidice bankruptcy). Once you involve yourself, your actions will elicit reactions as we have seen and you open yourself up to unwanted repercussions and it is no one’s fault but your own. Better kept to snarking on blogs and keeping one’s identity anonymous. Especially if one has a reputation to protect.

            BTW, all the information pertaining to WSL’s lawsuits can be found on Lexis-Nexis.

            • OneMoreInBoston says:

              IMHO- Mistakes were made in naivete.

              • shadowsmom says:

                I agree. It is hard way to learn a lesson. IMO these housewives aren’t worth risking one’s reputation on – none of them. We can all learn a lesson from this – adults need to practice what we try to teach our children – common sense and to protect oneself.

                Thankfully once the season of NYHW is over this will be a distant memory and all but a few people will remember it.

      This is so beautiful!!!! Happy 235 years Birthday America!!!!!

      Nice design, Diva. 🙂

    Wow 3rd day in a roll, I am the only one getting up early (it’s 8:00 am in Washington). HAPPY 4th everyone

      Sorry there was no one posted when I wrote that, darn iPhone took forever to post that. Love the flag

  4. Thedesigndiva says:

    I actually LOVE Lynn’s Flag the best… I have one with the USMC logo on one side and the Eagle on the other side in honor and memory of my son ….Semper Fi…
    Truly enjoy the reason for this day and may you all find peace in your part of the world…


  5. VAgirl says:

    Happy 4th of July everyone. Let Freedom Ring! Some of us aren’t so lucky to be having picnics, BBQs and going to parades today. They are in Afghanistan or Iraq or other parts of the world defending our freedom, like the freedom to express our opinions without censure. Thank you, men and women in the armed forces.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      Well Said! Thanks for that reminder! xoxo

    • BlueSky_Forever says:

      We have the freedom to express our opinions on the housewives. So Jill, go ahead & sue. You would have already done that if you could shut down this blog, you moron. The reason we can & will continue to express our minds freely is that we have the honor to be citizens of the United States of America. God Bless America & thank you to all who are currently serving, those who have served & remember always the many brave men & women that have given the ultimate sacrifice while protecting the rights we as citizens of this great nation have. Happy Fourth of July everyone!

    Thanks Lynn & Star for the great recaps. Happy 4th of July everyone! 🙂

    you know theresa blames the show etc….. well if it weren’t for ‘the show’ she would be living outdoors shes able to sell her book and the raise she demanded per episode. you can take the girl out of patterson but you can’t take the patterson out of the girl….

    not a fan of caroline she seems fine but i’m not moved, like she deserves a pat on the back for raising her kids as a stay at home mom with above average income (yawn)

    jaqueline i guess would be my fav seems harmless with a troubled teenage daughter. shes cute, real, and at times funny……….

    melissa is snooky on a diet, just read where she spent a year “in the lady pond” not that theres anything wrong with that just another reason to roll ‘my eyes’ between theresa and her ‘issues’
    not really interested

    kathy seems okay caught in a tough spot got a nice family, she just needs to stay away from the kims and let caroline go, develop her own situation. i think she’ll be fine.

    celeb rehab? didn’t they already have their 15 minutes? and since when does shooting someone in the head qualify you as a celebrity?

    • VAgirl says:

      They definitey use the term “celebrity” loosely. Just like all these various housewives are “celebrities.” Of course, I don’t think any of the housewives are felons – or are they?

    • Amy Matheson says:

      Melissa spent a yr in the lady pond? What tha? I had to go look and well… it’s in the Enquirer.


      Personally, the most interesting thing in this article was that among other possible surgeries, Teresa was considering a browlift. *crossing fingers* please be true…please be true…

      • Cusi77 says:

        “Teresa was considering a browlift”

        OMG! Does that mean T’s brows will reach the forehead line????? Eyes and immediatelly hair line? Ughhhhhh Don’t do it Teresa!

        • Amy Matheson says:

          Well skin stretches but the eyes are embedded in the skeleton, so I am guessing she will end up with Danielle eyebrows that seem to just fly off into space.

          • TLM says:

            If you ask me, from the looks of those beach pics, Joe Giudice is the one who should be getting the $12,000-$15,000 tummy tuck and liposuction…

      • BambiBaby22 says:

        Maybe this is why Melissa seems disgusted by Joe’s sexual suggestions?

      • floridagirl88 says:

        Melissa in the lady pond? Meh, I don’t care. I do care about Teresa going for more plastic surgery when she still owes so many people money. Pay the people you owe, Teresa!

  9. BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

    Happy 4th Everyone~
    I love Dr. Drew & it makes me feel like I am in some pretty famous company.

  10. Cusi77 says:

    Thank you Lynn and “Star”!!!!! Happy 4th of July! I am proud to be an American! Happy 235 year America!!!!

    I would love for Katy to write a book with her desserts recipes! I know at least she has tried those recipes successfully!

    • Cusi77 says:

      Sooooooo happy Quincy is back! We all need, as humans, to take back, breath, and see the entire picture to be objective and strong as we have always being!

  11. Dee says:

    Yay!! New blog…question:

    Are or arent the Salahi’s going to be on Celebrity Rehab? I think it is HILARIOUS if they cut them completely out, but I must confess a part of me was really looking forward to watching them get thrown out of this lil’ party!

    • Amy Matheson says:

      They said she didnt really have an addiction.

      Apparently famewhoring is not really an addiction so much as a choice.

      • Dee says:

        Well I recall they didnt have an addiction and got thrown out, but I was hoping to be able to see it. =)

        • Amy Matheson says:

          haha… i am pretty sure she didnt pass the audition (or whatever it is called) … didnt read the recap but pretty sure she never made it oncamera. It was just Michele. Micahele…Michayla…whatever her name is.

          • Amy Matheson says:

            Meant to say it was just the wife who tried to be on the show, not the bizarre husband too.

    • lillybee says:

      They claim that they only tried out for the show in order to get Michaela treatment for her ms.

  12. JillhAter says:

    I heard Salahi was thrown out after the intake process.

    Did you guys read the blind item a couple weeks back about a RHONY dating a production assistant who ‘gives’ her meds that are not prescribed to said person?

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      that’s an interesting little tidbit

    • Amy Matheson says:

      I remember … someone discussed it here and it was speculated as Kellybean Hasbeensimone,

    • sue says:

      I truly believe its Kelly, maybe that is partly why she has been more bold. Kelly has always felt entitled due to the people she knows, so she probably feels as though she “got it like that”,not only because of Jill, but now because she might be boinking a production asst….Just a thought!

    • lovemamaearth says:

      Would that be Kelly? (Hoping it’s not Sonja!!)

      • BambiBaby22 says:

        I may be wrong here, but Sonja does not seem like drugs are her thing. She really seems to like reality. Kelly, however, in my opinion may be drugged up alot of the time. When she was talking to (more like talking AT) Alex at lunch, it was almost as if Kellly had NO IDEA she was supposed to “listen” as well as talk. It is almost like she is NEVER aware of her own surroundings.

        • Amy Matheson says:

          Kelly’s behavior to my untrained eye looks like true psychosis or drug induced (or drug withdrawal) rants.

          • Rory P. Bellows says:

            mixing prescription drugs and alcohol ‘might’ explain her behavior on ‘scary island’

            • WindyCityWondering says:

              with a mega dose of jealousy and just plain mean thrown in to the mix!

              • sue says:

                I truly think alot of Kelly’s behavior was a plain old (severe) temper tantrum. Look, Kelly is used to people letting her “pretend”that she is smart, popular, and let her believe that the world will stop turning if shes not in it, but when no matter how hard she tried, B was better then her at every angle. I also believe that is how Bravo got stuck with her, Bravo peeps probably believed all her hype and all her “fake” accomplishments in life and brought her aboard and now they are sooo far in the crap with this one that they dont know how to get out…Oh yea, I saw this interview Kelly did with Russell Simmons a few years ago (she went to his house, I guess in the hamptons) and you see by his facial expressions that he thinks she is wacked, he also says a few times,”Crazy Kelly,Crazy Kelly” and then shakes his head…At least her and Jill have cahsing celebs who dont want to be around them in common!!!!!

                • sue says:

                  Oh yea, this interview was before the “Scary Island” episodes. I even think it was before she was on RHNY.

  13. JillhAter says:

    It was on Dlisted or Crazydaysandnights blog.

  14. California35 says:

    Good morning and Happy 4th!!

    I love you guys – glad we are here, we are heard, we care and appreciate each other. Ok sorry I just have to get that out of my chest 🙂

    NYHW will be on all day here in California.

  15. OneMoreInBoston says:

    At the risk of beating a dead horse-

    I do want to share something with all of you regarding WSL.

    This is an article that I *think* explains what happened to her and her firm- and at the risk or outing her for the umpteenth time, I’ve changed the names.

    “(WSL) Sues Former Employees For Data Theft

    Hedge fund advisory firm (WSL) Group filed a lawsuit against former employees, (Preggers) and (Baby Daddy), on Wednesday, alleged that they conspired to run off with large amounts of proprietary data, including information on thousands of hedge funds, HedgeWorld.com reports.

    Until January 2006, (Preggers) was technology and compliance officer and (Baby Daddy) was an associate v.p., reporting to (Preggers). (Preggers)left in January and (Baby Daddy) departed several months later. The departure came after it was discovered that (Preggers) was pregnant with (Baby Daddy)’s child.

    (Preggers) alleged in a wrongful dismissal lawsuit that after the firm’s Founder (WSL) found out about the pregnancy, he ordered one of the two to resign. (Preggers) left first and filed her wrongful dismissal suit in March 20-, after which the firm filed its own suit.

    The theft issue arose on Nov. 20- when (Preggers) admitted to downloading thousands of files with proprietary information to her handheld and their personal email accounts. All of this came about in her deposition, when she further disclosed that she then transferred the data to a computer at her new firm, (Bad Employee) Investment Group, where other employees could access it.

    According to (WSL) files taken include the firm’s commission model, which includes the names of all the hedge funds and clients (WSL) had at the time, including information on manager fee rebates and client fees. Having access to the Commission Model would enable the (Bad Employee) Defendants to surreptitiously undercut the private and confidential rates that have been negotiated between (WSL)and the fund managers and clients it works with.

    (WSL) said in the complaint (Preggers) is also alleged to have downloaded the firm’s ACT database, proprietary research and the company compliance manual. (WSL) names (Bad Employee) officials in its lawsuit:
    (Thomas Some Guy), managing partner and coo, and (Rocco Some Other Guy), a member of the firm.

    According to the complaint (Preggers) is trying to start a hedge fund, making it possible that WSL proprietary information will be used.”

    It has been brought to my attention that (Bad Employee) Investment Fund shut closed it’s doors within a year of WSL’s suit.

    Also (Preggers) now works for a Staten Island fire extinguisher company as CIO and “managing partner”. Probably because no one on Wall Street would ever hire a Wall Street propietary data thief.

    • lovemamaearth says:

      Thanks for extra info. I’m on WSL’s side.

      • mary says:

        If Preggers has not continued to make statements attacking big deal hedge fund lady, why keep going after her? Isn’t it true WSL told Pregger’s doorman she was her sister in order to get into her building?

        • shadowsmom says:

          That was in the NY Post story that I linked to yesterday (the link was removed). It said WSL told the doorman that she was preggers sis from NJ in order to gain access.

          I asked DH – who knows the players. Baby daddy is from a very well connected British family – friends of Prince Charles – and he still works in the financial sector and is very successful. Besides, they won a nice amount of $ when they settled the lawsuit. Preggers married baby daddy and they have another child. Nothing is black and white, including this entire story. There is lots of information on all the lawsuits on the internet including the resolutions for people to make their own opinions.

          who’s going after who?

          Many *new* members with 50 followers or less on twitter Have continuously repeated that WSL stalked Preggers. No charges were filed, no prosecution, and this sister story was told by Preggers IMHO as a bid to divert attention away from her propietary data theft.

          How can stalking allegations against WSL by Preggers be discussed without discussing Preggers?


          • Amber...Real Wife says:

            LOL Are all Bostonites as tenacious as you? The answer to any sane person is… you can’t discuss the allegations by preggers without discussing the crime she committed first! But when slandering and libeling others, sycophants and idiots will grab any red herring which they will feed, crossbreed and turn it into a vicious oversized piranah. New readers already know Jill is known to lie, deceive, manipulate, embellish or stretch the truth and her face. Awful ain’t it?

          • Exactly, the whole ‘stalking’ allegation was never a criminal complaint but only referenced in the unlawful termination lawsuit. From what I read, it seems like preggers was successful in the ‘unlawful termination’ complaint…but only for the fact that she was pregnant which I guess is like a protected class in NYC.

            I don’t know if WSL said she was preggers sister or not to gain access to the building- but that doesn’t make her a stalker. Once my friends boyfriend told a concert promoter that he was with Chart magazine to get us into a sold out show. That does make us stalkers either.

            Stalking by definition is a pattern of behavior and not a single act.

            • BessiB says:

              Throwing a stalking/harrassing claim in a lawsuit seems to be a matter of course. You see that every day on Judge Judy. Even in my homeowner’s association lawsuit to get a guy to remove a trailer from his drive – one of the board members said the defendant stalked and harasser her by driving by her house daily and looking at her (mean). He lives on her damn street!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Why is WSL being thrown back into this now? What does it accomplish and who benefits? If Jill thinks this is going to get her mileage as a cyberbullied, stalked and harassed victim – it won’t work and she will have even more detractors than before! WSL has no use for this vapid viper and financials are more important than fabrics every single day of the week!

    • I think we need to keep reminding ourselves that none of this has anything to do with Jill.

      It’s the 4th of July and a good time to remember that in this Country you are Innocent until Proven Guilty.

      Just because Jill, her minions, or disgruntled bloggers or ex-fans of this site say stuff doesn’t make any of it true.

    • BlueSky_Forever says:

      Thank you OMIB for this info. And isn’t it also true that companies like Goldman Sachs


      and Morgan Stanley


      had employees that paid fines and served time in prison as a result of committing the same kinds of crimes that “Preggers” and “Baby Daddy” did. However, WSL didn’t press charges. IMO she should have.

      • shadowsmom says:

        There were charges against preggers by WSL in 2008. I haven’t found a resolution so don’t know if it is still active or settled.

        • mary says:

          A private person (preggers) is being called a thief; that is not right-no charges or prosecution ….Why is a big deal wall street person (hedge fund owner with her husband) all actively involved with the stupid housewives? No wonder the entire economy crumbled…

          • Preggers ADMITTED she download the data. WSL didn’t want to send a mother of a young child to prison. You take issue with an admitted thief being labled as such. Why is it that you don’t seem to have the same regard for WSL accused of being a stalker. No criminal charges or prosecution. That’s not right.
            RH shows are the root of all evil and the cause of economic crisis? Okay

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          Preggers never WON anything for claiming she was stalked- but used her pregnancy to shield her against her poor performance.

          Stalking was cited in the lawsuit which is nothing more than allegation. Preggers was also sued & admitted to stealing proprietary data

      • BlueSky_Forever says:

        Let me qualify that…if “preggers” did allegedly steal proprietary company information then of course that person is innocent until proven guilty.

        • mary says:

          The counter suit (not charges) about leaving company data on her computer came two or three years AFTER the harassment and wrongful termination suit against WSL

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          Well- no, she’s guilty, because she ADMITTED TO THEFT.

          “The theft issue arose on Nov. 20- when (Preggers) admitted to downloading thousands of files with proprietary information to her handheld and their personal email accounts.”

          “All of this came about in her deposition, when she further disclosed that she then transferred the data to a computer at her new firm, (Bad Employee) Investment Group, where other employees could access it.”

          There WERE charges- no prosecution was pursued.

          Right- the entire economy of the United States of America crumbled to the ground because WSL went to the Chum’s birthday party. Good to know.

          I’ll somehow contact her so she can maybe go to some other non Housewife event to buoy the economy back up again. No more unemployment lines! Big cars and Big cigars for everyone ’cause WSL’s going to go to a non-Housewife cookout!

      • lovemamaearth says:

        And RE Goldman Sachs, the US taxpayer bailed their criminal asses out and now they’ve just recently fired 1000 NY employees and hired 1000 employees in Singapore. We should nationalize our banks and deal them out of the profits and protect our security.

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

    Happy 4th everyone!

    People aren’t buying Mel’s eyeroll story because it’s bs. Just be honest Mel, you were rolling your eyes because Ter is a lying sack of shit who wouldn’t know the truth if it gave her a browlift she’ll never pay the bill for. Truth is always best. It’s not like 99% of the RHNJ viewers aren’t rolling their eyes every time Ter opens her mouth too.

    Lauren: the poor girl. Now that all 3 of Caro’s men have ditched her, all that’s left is sad sack Lauren to take the abuse. Everyday she comes down tot he kitchen and before the coffee even hits the cup it’s like “Are you getting engaged today? Because I wouldn’t wear that if I were you. Today may be the day you get engaged and you don’t want that outfit in the photos. Daddy said a wedding cancelled for the 23rd, so if you get engaged today, we can book the 23rd. Do you want me to call vito and ask him if he’s popping the question today? Lauren? Lauren! Don’t walk away form me when I’m talking to you! Ok, Ok I see we’re in ‘bitch mode’ today.”

    • Cusi77 says:

      Error_ That is hysterical! And probably not that far from the truth!

    • vilzvet says:

      LOL I can totally picture this!

    • California35 says:

      Oh Error – that’s what I was thinking about Lauren. I know she has a good life, more space in the house, her new career, a boy friend, etc etc etc… But she also has….Caroline lol – she is a good mom and loves her children (specially the boys), but we have seen how she talks to Lauren. Blablabla –

    • California35 says:

      And on Melissa – if she had said the reason she rolled her eyes was because she didn’t believe Theresa or because she has heard that before, I would have believed her. Maybe she is trying not to angry Theresa by saying the truth … Oh well.

    • LOL- Error you are so funny

  21. Jillybean says:

    We don’t know what really is going on with T and M … what we do know is what we see on TV and what we read in their blogs. I think both women seem self centered and entitled. But I also think there is a total disconnect between what Melissa says and does on camera and what she blogs after the fact. She is usually the last to post, it’s as if she waits to read the others’ blogs and comments before she posts. I find that suspect. We watch the footage of her as she pumps her hubby up with vile filled hatred toward not only his sister, but also his mother prior to his meeting with his sister. But then she blogs how sad she was that the meeting did not go well. We see her roll her eyes at every word T says during their confo, but the second Jacq. enters the room M is all smiles and pulls out photos of the “good ol days” when they all got along. I feel M is very disingenuous. It is obvious she is perfectly happy that her in-laws are not involved with her and her children. She obviously is perfectly happy that she has her sisters (especially Lysa) front and center and constantly in her ear. Talk about toxic – there is Lysa!
    I would like it if Mellissa would rewatch the footage of the way everything went down at the Christening. I totally believe that Teresa approached their table for the sake of the camera, all Mellissa had to do was thank her. Be a good hostess and ask if T and her family were having a good time ask how the food is and thank her for taking the time to check in. THE END … BUT Mellissa rolled her eyes and gave her drunk husband “that” look. Her Joe totally lost it. Teresa walked away. Joe pounded on the table, Joe made a scene, Joe called his sister GARBAGE! He even verbally attacked his own mother! That Mellissa goes on and on about expecting an “I’m sorry” is ridiculous.

    • I don’t think she’s THAT bad. She didn’t get the memo from Caroline that the meeting was about putting your big girl panties on and making up on camera – and pretending that everything is okay.

      I think she’s shallow, self centered, and whiny, but so is T.

    • error404 says:

      “We don’t know what really is going on with T and M … ” abso-effing-lutely! Believe me, none of it has anything to do with what we’re shown on tv, that much i’d bet all my money on.

      No man calls his own sister “garbage” because of store bought cookies. He screamed “you’re garbage” at her at a family event in front of everyone because she did something really really really bad to him. Something almost unforgivable. We’ll probably never find out what because people somehow are hypnotized by her lack of brow and fall under a spell where they seem to think she’s an actual human being with feelings and a conscience. She’s not. She’s garbage.

      s1 people are honest because they haven’t learned how to cover up and do back stage deals yet. When Joey screamed “you’re garbage!” at Ter, it was the only moment of truth s3 ever saw.

      • LynnNChicago says:

        I think that Teresa did everything she could to try to ensure that Melissa and Joey never appeared on RHONJ, in fact didn’t we hear that she threatened to quit if Melissa was made a housewife? Yet we see Teresa calling Jac and Caroline, “Family”. That is what I think Joey was so upset about.

        • I think I read that she had just signed her contract the morning of the christening.

        • BlueSky_Forever says:

          Lynn don’t you often wonder how much is “real” and how much is scripted in these shows? The sceptic side of me wonders if that brawl wasn’t a producer’s idea to get RHONJ off to a bangin’ start for ratings. Seems like everyone expects NJ to be a bunch of fist pumping hooligans (Jersey Shore style). To pump up ratings these people will do anything…maybe some caste members think they will get fatter paychecks next season. Makes me want to vomit.

    • Melissa is ridiculously fake. Her blogs are a study in contradictions. Even after she waits till everyone else has posted, she still can’t figure out how to come out ahead.
      Example, her first blog, she writes that she is sure we are surprised that T has a brother because Teresa did everything in her power to keep the cameras away from the. A couple of episodes later, she is glad that Bravo showed Teresa pulling her brother Joe in front of the camera. Now, we can put the rumors to rest that her and Joe were angry they were never put in front of the camera. Wait…what?!?!?
      At the gymnastics meet, it is obvious everyone is good and trying to move forward, EXCEPT Melissa. On her blog, she writes she wanted to get Joe home to have a positive talk with him before his meeting with T. So, telling him how his family makes you feel so bad and “empty” was getting him in a positive state of mind to go mend fences with his sister.
      I’ve wondered how anyone in PR hasnt pulled her to the side to tell her to stop all the negative talk, because frankly, even if you don’t like T, that gets old. I am positive it has finally happened, hence, I roll my eyes when I’m thinking. Oooh, o.k. Because I thought you were just showing your true colors!

      • MAMAZ says:

        I seem to be defending all the HWs today!
        I don’t like Melissa. I agree she is fake. But once Bravo started leaving negetive comments on her blog and pulling them from jill, kelly and luann I feel for her.
        Certain HWs like jill, teresa and vicki always seem to get a pass. Others like Danielle, Alex, Gretchen and now Mellisa are fodder for the Bravo machine.
        If they can pull all the bad stuff from jzs blog how can we be sure they aren’t pulling supportive comments from Melissa?
        I intend to leave a supportive comment for Melissa every week. Lets see if any get posted.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          Jersey blog posts usually run nice and not so nice. Only NY gets the kid glove treatment and IMO Bravo let the curtain slip this week on NY for a brief moment.

            Yum, that sounds good!

    So is Theresa pregnant or not? I saw that on a front cover on the grocery store. She is rely putting herself out there getting front covers…

    Melissa get/by/curious? Was/is she? Wow that would be another reason why the family might not like her :-/

    When/where is Reality Rehab? I don’t like types of shows – they make me feel really bad for the addicts 😦 however I might give it a try.

    • 1) I believe the cover implied she was pregnant, but inside it said she was going to try to get pregnant
      2) Story in the Enquirer – next we’ll read that her first born was with an Alien.
      3) No idea

      • California35 says:

        Thank you!!

        Hhmm so if she is not pregnant it still implies she is trying to get pregnant and she is hoping for a boy… So many things I can say about all. She has FOUR children boys or girls she has FOUR. We see how overwhelmed she is with them, how she is not necessarily educating them and making them her priority. Also, what her girls are not important enough because she HAS to have a boy to be fulfilled? How special those girls must feel hearing how much the parents were hoping for a boy and instead they had them (each of them). Ugh! Also, aren’t they having $ problems? Shouldnt they be focus on getting out of those problems, make sure they can afford where to live, support their family (children). And if we go even further, how about education (schools, college, etc). Calm down California, I do hope those girls get some basic education, morals, collage, etc etc. I won’t think about them anymore because I already feel bad for the. How sad that Theresa only talks and talks about being a good mom, but shows that she is not.

    • Not pregnant.

      It seems like this girl/girl relationship was 20 years ago (if it happened). I very much doubt that the Gorga’s were aware of it.

      Sundays at 9pm on Vh1. You can also watch it online on their website.

      • MAMAZ says:

        I wouldn’t say Teresa is a bad mother. She isn’t being a good role model for living within your means but she isn’t alone. Sadly that seems to be the norm these days.
        I was one of five children. My father was military and gone from home for long stretches. We were good kids but a handful. My mother was often overwhelmed. But she was a good, loving mother.
        We will have to wait and see how Teresa’s kids turn out.

    Good Morning everyone… Happy 4th- Beautiful artwork from posters and Lynn for the day!
    Wanted to say great recap to Star.. really through, gave the cast of treatment people as well as the characters- felt like i had seen the show. Also Lynn, I thanks for the review of the repeat- i too noticed that Kathy really wanted to do the dessert catering and not so into a full fledged restaurant. Sometimes smaller is better and not to do the bigger just because you can. I also agree that Kathy is in a rock and hard place in this show- I think her family is most normal… she seems to have a real relationship with the husband and the kids seem sweet and just kids. They were respectful to go to the recital and although they were bored, did not act out and just sat there watching.
    Thank you for giving us a place to say hi, discuss the shows ALL OF THEM not just NYHW and the jillousy – You, Quncyil VAGirl, Housewifeaddict, CarlyHall, boston2127,error404,lovemamaearth, mamaz, jillybean, duchesses, jillaterh, Pghemtchick,Thedesigndiva( my prayer are with you for your loss) all of the other wonderful posters ( sorry but i got lazy in the end) – The kindness and fun you all put out there is what this blog is about- we all just came together because of a need to tell it like it really is- Lynn Thanks for thsi and happy 4th-

    Bravo elected not to put Melissa on the show when she first auditioned (seriously, Bravo picked Dina over My Little Pony!), but needed a drama bringer after Danielle left. Melissa is stumbling her rookie season with the women and sadly she has been upstaged by her nitwit husband. Melissa isn’t a long suffering, misunderstood wife and her husband is a big ball of neurosis and immaturity. He has to mend his relationships with his parents and his sister independently of his silly wife and she has to be respectful of her place in their family. Note seeing either of those things happening anytime soon!

    Happy Independence Day, fellow haters! I call it “Independence Day” rather than the 4th of July because that’s what Teddy Roosevelt called it, and he was still in the White House when I was born.

    I’m on a Bravo Fast today (at least until midnight, I hope) but while I’m stopping by here, I figured I’d send out a big ol’ F. U. to Teresa Giudice, another XXL F. U. to that talentless C-U-Next-Tuesday, Luann DeJackass, and to Jill Zarin…wait….Jill Who??? Sorry, that name doesn’t ring a bell. Whoever this “Jill” person is, she must not be very important.

    Oh and one question: why the hell does Teresa almost always turn her head sideways when she’s having her picture taken? The hand on the hip thing is bad enough, but adding the tilting skull? I just don’t get it. Is she trying to look like a curious beagle or something?

    OK, well, I’m off to show the neighborhood kids how to blow up a mailbox using only a piece of string, a cardboard tube and and a stick of dynamite. And I know I say this every year, but this time I’m really serious….NOBODY is gonna lose a finger this time! God Bless America, and God Bless my IHJZ peeps!

    Happy 4th of July everyone!! Laying low here in Indy….we had our big NYC weekend last week.
    Up very late reading last nights feed and getting all worked up. Q love your posts and can really see how this gets sooo disturbing…..and you have a right to change your mind….i;m 58 too!!

    That being said, I really feel strongly that we should approach the companies that advertise on these shows where the reality is getting out of hand. I don’t know if we are being manipulated or not but when I read about someone’s (read ‘lls) bad behavior when the cameras or “fans” aren’t present….I have to believe it is not manipulation. I started watching these shows to experience lives in other places…..kind of like a pleasant escape. Lines have now been crossed where the “fans” are being abused and not treated with an sort of integrity. I don’t think that I need to spell out the examples. That just tells me that the advertisers on Bravo do not value integrity. Why would I support a company like that?

    Let freedom ring. Don’t support censorship. ‘ill if you don’t like the heat get out the kitchen….don’t turn up the burners.

  34. In today’s Gatecrasher column, there is an artice about Ramona renting a Maserati. I think it’s the article that was supposed to come out on Thursday but it was published today, probably because it is such a boring story. A certain someone always leaves a breadcrumb trail.

    One of the writers for Gatercrasher tweeted this last Wednesday:

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

    The article from Gatecrasher titled “Real housewives turn out to be rent heads”:

      ramonasinger Ramona Singer
      So much fun driving around in the Masserati from long island dealership tho ey offered us for the holiday weekend!
      18 hours ago Favorite Retweet Reply

      I really don’t see Ramona trying to pretend she owns a Maserati when she doesn’t – or at least this one.

      • Amy Matheson says:

        This smells like Jill… next time try to beat Ramona to the punch. Being forthright about a loaned Maserati to take the focus of the fact you’re spending July 4th with Jellybeansimone and no fabulous crowd in your old hamptons home you sold and now rent back for less fabulous weekend.

        From the link from OP: “Is a loaned Maserati different from a rented Ferrari? Someone should ask Ramona Singer. A source tells us the “Real” NY housewife’s husband, Mario, convinced a local Maserati dealership to loan him a sweet Gran Turismo Spyder that he and the Mrs. took to the Hamptons this weekend. A Maserati employee tells us that though the automaker doesn’t “normally loan its products” to celebrities,” it let Mario take the Spyder for the weekend in hopes that he “falls in love” with the $140K car and buys it.”

        Pathetic, Jill.

        • Amy Matheson says:

          Should’ve kept reading LOL!!!

          “Our insider found the Singers’ free ride interesting in light of condescending comments Ramona made about fellow “Real” housewife Jill Zarin on Andy Cohen’s “Watch What Happens Live” talk show. On May 27, Singer said Zarin “loves to exaggerate” her financial situation, and claimed she once tried to pass off a rented Ferrari as her own.

          Zarin’s rep declined to comment except to say Jill’s spouse, Bobby Zarin has owned multiple Ferraris — though not currently — and never rented one. Singer did not respond by deadline” (“because unlike Jill, Ramona has a life.” – added by Amy M.)

          • Ramona’s comments on WWHL really got under Jill’s skin. She won’t let it go! I think it is funny that most of the gossip leaks about RHONY feature Jill’s name in the article. Coincidence? LOL

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          No difference between loaned and rented? Sure, but a hugh difference betweened leased and saying its mine (as in own it)? Just saying, just saying! lol
          If Jill wants redemption maybe she should cop to all the lies, pretentious omissions and realize she is a middle aged woman who is desperate to hang onto her meal ticket!

        • It’s so dumb..is an admitted loaned Maserarti different from a rented Farrari that you pretend to own? Umm YES.

      • I know, it’s not like Ramona is trying to hide it. Someone is just trying to make Ramona look bad because Ramona pointed out that a certain someone rented a Ferrari and also rents a house in the Hamptons.

      • FLG says:

        I’ve got to give Ramona credit for letting everyone know it’s a Raloaner!

      I wonder if it’s free advertising for the Long Island Maserati dealership or if they paid to have this tidbit put in.

  35. IceMeNot says:

    Posted this at the end of the previous blog, so here’s a copy:
    Longtime lurker. Wanted to respond about Q being “iced” by inadvertent comments. Q, my profession makes me see things through a psychological frame. I thought you’d get overwhelmed after that storm, too much stress, but when the going gets tough, the tough keep going. Then it catches up! You are simply a lightning rod for J.Z. who is always in a war with someone. Who said upstream that Bethanny wisely doesn’t comment on J.Z.? Are we wise to give her this much attention? We all thought we were entertaining ourselves with making fun of these characters on a t.v. show. So I hope you return soon when you feel like it. I will miss your commentary.
    Now, to lighten the mood…I have been wondering if anyone out there noticed something on the St. John photo shoot? I use an Ipad to watch the reruns, and noticed that not only did it appear that KKB had something in her bathing suit bottom appear and disappear, but that the Bravo editors featured this clip on the next show right at the beginning. I know people make fun of her dressing to the left, but I have been wondering if a hermaphrodite can give birth to children?
    Which leads me to my next interesting thought…the meaning of 1979. Many of us have wondered the significance of what happened to KKB in that year when she was about 11 yo. Could that have been when puberty struck and the little girl became conflicted over being also a boy? Just wondering because there is no question that something is up with that lunatic. I wondered whether she was mortified that the crew caught on film her reaction to pulling a power play on Alex? So that night she was driven crazy by her secret conflict? That may be why the women and crew have kept the secret, because maybe she not only was using drugs, or whatever, but also she told them “the truth”?
    Well, I hope someone else has noticed this besides me!
    Happy 4th of July, everybody! My flag is flying. I love this country! Even though I really cannot abide J.Z. and anyone who behaves like that. Thanks Lynn for this entertaining site! Just think: the reunion was taped so for each of the ladies, the show is actually done. And they will be free to say whatever they can outside their no comment contracts!

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      How interesting.

      I just commented on another blog that I think Kelly *might* have gender confusion.

      • FLG says:

        IF and I preface this with a BIG IF, Kelly has any gender identity issues, I hope one day she will be able to gather the courage to tell the world her truth. She has young children to consider and it would be an extremely complex situation to confront, but having known individuals with gender identity issues, I would urge her to confront them and liberate herself from a self-induced prison of hidden shame and guilt and let love of self blossom. For her sake, I hope she does not have these issues. Not because there is anything wrong or any blame to be laid, but because the complexity is so challenging for anyone who finds them-self in that position.

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          You say you have “known individuals with gender identity issues.”

          What do you think? Do you see the preoccupation with gender roles?

        • moneycanbuyyouass says:

          First let me say I am not defending Kelly OR speaking for her in any capacity.

          I find her mind-numbing.

          I happen to know someone who is transgendering, male to female. IT IS AN ABSOLUTE SHAME what preconceived notions and attitudes we have about these individuals. This person is attractive, extremely intelligent, personable, and quite honestly, I would have never guessed, had they not told me directly. It took me quite awhile to adjust to this fact as I had to process what this person must have felt growing up, and what they were willing to do to fee comfortable in their own body. Luckily, she is very well adjusted and has high self-esteem. She has yet to go through surgery for complete transformation. I admire her even more for her inner-strength to accept what needed to be done so SHE could have the live she desired.

          If Kelly is a hermaphrodite (which I highly doubt) or transgender, which I also doubt, So
          What?!! We don’t know the circumstances that surround the situation if it happens to be true. Why try to start something? She obviously has enough problems already.

          • OneMoreInBoston says:

            well hold up.

            In my line of work I have several transgender patients in various stages, and I have had one hermaphrodite who identified as a female. I’ve worked alongside transvestites- some pretty obvious and some so skillful very few people know. One woman was my employee both before and after her surgery.

            I am not saying that Kelly is transgendered or even implying it.

            What I am noticing in Kelly has gender *confusion* which I understand is actually a different issue then Gender Identity Disorder.

            Not that she is necessarily confused about her own sex or her sexuality but confused by gender altogether.

            I duuno it just struck me as very odd that she was stressing about Simon “Be a man.” “Can you believe a man asked her to lunch?” “A MAN!” I mean, his being a man really didn’t really make that request inappropriate-did it?

            I knew someone with Gender Confusion , he would use the pronoun he/she- his/her him/her to everyone regardless of their sex.
            “where’s Frank?”
            ” I saw her go in there”

            Consistently calling men- women- and women-men. Not deliberately either, to be controversial or to make a statement as he was completely unaware of doing it.

            And of course you right, it’s none of our business- and I hope Kelly’s just confused altogether and not about gender specifically.

            • FLG says:

              OMIB, I fully get what you are saying regarding the label-ing and pre-occupation with label-ing and what is “acceptable” and “unacceptable” in Kellyland. I agree with you. Both my grandmother and grandfather in the 1940’s felt free to lunch with whomever they wanted to regardless of that persons sex or marital status and felt no requirement to be chaperoned in order to attend that luncheon.

          • FLG says:

            I’m not trying to start something. That is why I prefaced my comment with “BIG IF”. I wanted to convey that I was not postulating whether or not she she has any gender identity issues. I wanted to convey what IMHO is the best approach for ANY person to do if they discover they have a gender identity issue. There was a case here in Fort Lauderdale a few years back when a transgendered person was murdered. What that individual and their family went through was shameful, horrifying, unnecessary and unacceptable. There as another case in Largo, FL in which the mayor or city manager (don’t recall the specific job title) announced they would be undergoing gender reassignment. There was a horrible fire storm of public outcry. By all measures that city manager had done a fine job, but was fired anyway. Gender identity issues should NOT be used as a weapon against anyone experiencing them. Flori-duh unfortunately is nowhere near the back of the pack in protecting the rights of transgender individuals.

            • FLG says:

              CORRECTION: Flori-duh is NOWHERE NEAR THE FOREFRONT in protecting the rights of transgender individuals.

              • FLG says:

                I have had personal friends that fall within all categories we discuss on this board. I don’t choose my friends based upon labels. Each of the housewives remind me of people I have either met or known well. Some became lifelong friends. Others I chose to distance myself from, knowing I did not wish to know them better. I made my choices based upon their behavior not their “label”.

          • Need a Hobby says:

            I think Kelly’s main issue is that she’s crazy. OK, let me rephrase that: she appears to be dealing with unresolved mental/psychological issues. IMO she appears, simply from her strange outbursts on the show, to perhaps also have issues with sexuality. (Not gender identity IMO, FWIW.) She seems at time to almost exemplify the “madonna/slut” dichotomy in a strange way: she’ll wear skimpy provocative clothing with her fake boobs, and next she’ll show up in what could pass for a school girl uniform and all that “sex” stuff is “icky & gross.” I really doubt Sonja flashed her during the photo shoot, but Kelly’s carrying on about it so was itself “creepy.” (IIRC Kelly was wearing her school girl outfit that day.)

            I know some people–both straight and gay—joke about “LuMan” & Kelly being men, trannies (as in transsexual or transgendered, not transvestites). But for some reason I don’t find that particularly funny. Which is odd, because I’ll usually go for a laugh over sensitivity. Maybe it seems too easy, a cheap shot. I dunno. It’s not because I have any fondness for these two posers. I have known a few folks who have undergone sex change surgery, some even sacrificing their previous careers, to do so. So maybe that has something to do with it.

            One, I’m fairly sure Lulu and Kels are not men or transgendered. Two, I tend to focus more on people’s behavior, whether they’re kind or cruel, and how it illuminates their character, rather than their physical attributes. I recall someone somewhere going on about Kelly’s “mannish” body to the point where I was wondering what the poster’s own hang up was.

            Of course if the Countless wants to dress up like a third rate Carmen Miranda impersonator, she’s fair game IMO. 😉

    • Adgirl says:

      Wow, interesting post.
      I personally think JZ is literally addicted to fame and control. I mean she gets high off it! The constant predictable cycle of crying out LOOK AT ME (i.e.- hourly tweets, shoving people out of the way so she can be on camera) seems like addict behavior.
      And her endless loop of enemies that need to be crushed. I think she gets high from demolishing people then is temporarily satisfied. Shortly after than she has the need to start the hunt for her next fix.

      Very predictable, just like a drug addict.

    • Nancy says:

      Hermaphrodites have both sex organs but usually they aren’t working right so your answer is no. I wonder if anyone saw Kelly during her pregnancy? She does have a male twin. I would also like to find out what happened to her in 1979. I think she went into therapy (and also was put on meeds) after Scary Island. What do you think?
      I have to feel for her kids. The teasing at school must be awful.

      • MAMAZ says:

        I don’t believe that kelly is a hermaphrodite. The male genitalia of a true hermaphrodite is so small she wouldn’t be dressing left or right. She’d barely have to tuck.

        I agree with moneycanbuyyouass, there is enough about kelly to be outraged over. And if she was either transgender or a hermaphrodite those aren’t reasons to dislike her.

        This is what Enough Transphobia was complaining about the other day. A persons sexuality shouldn’t be something we point at and giggle about.

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          I don’t see anyone laughing at anyone.

          Kelly put herself out in the public eye.

          How is it appropriate to discuss Classless Countess’s extramarital affairs, or Sonja’s lovers which is their sexuality and not discuss Kelly’s sexuality?

          I think that because Enough Transphobia was new to the blog and saw discussion of transgender or transexuals, they automatically assumed that the discussion was disrespectful -which I have never seen here.

          I feel badly though that anyone would think they weren’t welcomed here because of who they are and I hope Enough Transphobia comes back and gives us another chance.

          • Need a Hobby says:

            Countless’s & Sonja’s reported flings are voluntary behaviors. Not a matter of what they were physically born as, which is the issue when some start speculating that Kelly may be a hermaphrodite.

      • IceMeNot says:

        Thanks for the info, Nancy. She’s a fascinating contradiction of a person, isn’t she?
        To those who don’t know me and suggest that I’m joking about sexual identity issues, you are wrong. I’m simply puzzled by what I see and what many others have only joked about. I have a bit of Ramona in me; I say what’s on my mind and find out later I’ve said something un-p.c. Anyway, didn’t mean to offend anybody!
        Another thing I noticed during Kelly’s “breakthrough” on St. John was how much more articulate she sounded during that fateful dinner. Even on the yacht while verbally lacerating Bethenny, her usually fractured speech flowed into complete sentences. Normally she talks like a 12 year old child.

    • floridagirl88 says:

      What Kelly is is mean.

      • MAMAZ says:

        I’m not trying to come across as holier than thou. I’m really not judging anyone. I’ve just noticed lately, and it’s not only here but on gawker and other sites, that the go to insult is speculation on a persons gender/sexuality. I’m as guilty as anyone else as I always call luann LuMann. I won’t do that anymore.
        I started to notice right around the time we were celabrating NY passing the Gay Marriage bill. And then when kelly kept telling Simon to “be a man” it really hit home. I don’t think there was any gender confusion in kellys remarks. She knew exactly what she was doing. She was casting aspersions on Simons manhood. As if a “real man” couldn’t possibly want to talk to a woman, have woman as a friend or want the same fame/celebrity as the HWs. I posted about it at the time. Then the Enough Transphobia incident occured. I felt bad that I had maybe hurt someone who came here looking for the same sense of community I had found.
        I think everyone here is a good person. I don’t think anyone is a bigot or looking down on anyone. But I think maybe the subtle, and sometimes not so subtle, digs against the transgender community is still considered okay where a racist or homophobic comment wouldn’t be.
        I’m not telling anyone else how to behave. But for myself I find there is more than enough reason to take these people to task for their actions. I’m not going to comment on their masculine or feminine traits.

        I hope I explained myself a little better this time. I’m not as articulate as some of the other posters here.

        • IceMeNot says:

          Thanks, Mamaz. I was really curious about what we have seen. I agree that Kelly identifies as a female. She comes across as a child regarding sexuality in general. She seems to be embarrassed by any talk of sex as if she grew up in 1890. As she said about Sonya, she’s a good girl! She talks about middle aged mothers as if they are her classmates at an all-girl’s school. And when she dresses like a hooker, she giggles as if she’s sneaking behind her parent’s back. Alternatively, she wears an old-fashioned dress with puff sleeves and a high cut neckline as though she were attending Sunday School.
          I wonder if she is acting out the Three Faces of Eve? Maybe she is crazy like a fox, sly, mean, bossy, self-absorbed and quietly struggling with addiction to something? One thing for sure, like the Countess who doesn’t allow cameras in her bathroom, Kelly won’t allow us to see her real soul.
          Well, time for fireworks! Happy Independence Day everybody! Time to remember those who long ago pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor so that we could be free.

  36. Megan says:

    One of my friends who lives in Kathy’s neighborhood mentioned that many of the women around there are stating that Kathy didn’t make all those desserts herself. If you think about it…how could one person with one oven make all those desserts and keep them fresh? Also..if she really has been a baker all these years…how is it that her daughter knows nothing? She had no idea what marscapone cheese was or hold to incorporate it into batter without deflating it. Really…you would need some professional equipment and a staff to make everything…bake it all…keep it all fresh and then put the finishing touches on it all. I heard that she now wants to write a cookbook. What a surprise.

    • Don’t watch NJ and can’t say anything about Kathy’s cooking, but my mother was a fabulous gourmet cook and I can barely boil water. She would have loved to teach me all she knew but it just didn’t interest me.

    • Amy Matheson says:

      Let me start by saying I dont care for Kathy.

      Now, keep that in mind when I say that my mom is an amazing chef and baker and I am lucky I can make hot tea in the microwave.

      Also, I just assumed she had another place to make the rest of those desserts and some help getting all those arranged so nicely at Melissa’s.

      If you believe 40% of what youre shown, you get fewer stress headaches from being too invested in the perceived reality of reality t.v. 🙂 I can handle anyone’s fake reality – even JZ’s. I draw my personal gross out do-not-engage line at the disgusting Vicki from OC.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

      • MAMAZ says:

        I think it’s strange that her daughter doesn’t know what mascarpone is even if Kathy doesn’t bake. I thought these folks were really into the whole Italian culture thing.

        I don’t know if she made all the desserts herelf but I can tell you that you can crank a lot of pastries out of a home kitchen. My mother would routinely do a whole weddings worth of cookies over several weeks. Many of them can be frozen and filled the day before or of an event. Like cannoli.

        • TLM says:

          Agreed I don’t think Kathy lied about that.

          Her daughter is a teenager. Many teens aren’t into cooking or especially knowledgeable about it. She may know ricotta and parmigiano and mozzarella, but not mascarpone. I don’t see it as a big deal.

    • moneycanbuyyouass says:

      There is an amazing desserts only restaurant in San Diego (can’t remember the name) that seems to have a booming business. Kathy should tell her husband to step-off and let her follow her own instincts.

      Desserts = Stressed spelled backwards. Coincidence? I think not!

    OK, after yesterday I have to say this and be done with it. This is the only blog I come to and did some research today on other blogs and will never do that again. I am on Facebook and Twitter but don’t follow a whole lot of people so these are not my main source of information – Lynn’s blog is for a lot of things not just the shows..

    With that being said looking at other blogs and their spitefulness it is obvious that anyone that thinks Jill and Kelly are amazing people baffle me, but the spew they go on to say about Lynn and Q are just wrong. I was going to comment/respond but thought why? What would be the purpose to get involved? Why give them any attention.

    I have been here for quite some time and the respect for the people here is beyond anything I’ve ever seen. It’s funny because I was shocked by what I read but then I thought this doesn’t happen here so my expectations were different.

    Q – You are one of those people that have lived life and had experiences that some of us have not. I love to listen to people’s perspective when they took life and challenged it and over came the goods and bads. I love your perspective so I am so glad you stay with us.

    We all have been through different scenarios and we share here and help one another. What other blog gives you this kind of support unless it is a specified support blog.

    I look at this blog as a neighborhood where we all get along for the most part. We may not agree all the time but we respect one another and support and give really good advice.

    BUT KNOW THIS to those that want to disrupt our neighborhood. This is a special place and you can come into our neighborhood and even start neighbor wars but when it is all said and done this is OUR neighborhood and you can’t destroy us.

    OK feel so much better! Thank you Lynn and Q for all you do!!!!!!!

    And THANK YOU TROOPS for giving and sacrificing your time for our wonderful country America!!!!!!!

      WOW!!! Kadooz to you! You speak so wonderfully and said everything that was in my brain!!

    • 🙂 I’ve actually never found a site where they like Jill, Kells or LuLu. The main complaints that I read about this place are we:

      1) Defend Simon and Alex
      2) Worship Bethenny

      Maybe we’re just too darn nice!!

      I really hope Sonja finds a way out of the mess she has found herself in. One business deal gone bad has really devastated her finances. I wish her the best.

      • Nancy says:

        Happy 4th FLG,
        Does anyone know why Sonja and her ex split? With all of his money why wouldn’t he make sure Sonja and their child kept their house et al? It must have been a very nasty break. Maybe I’m strange but I have never wished harm on my last loves. I have though come close to the one I married. ha ha (kidding) George is the love of my life. 🙂

        • FLG says:

          Happy 4th to you, too Nancy! And everyone else, too! From what I’ve read it has been a nasty break up. I seem to recall she was blind-sided when the divorce happened. He keeps a low profile and is very private. I hope he’ll loosen up his wallet a little bit and be more generous with her and a least honor what the Judge originally ordered him to pay.

          • Nancy says:

            I wonder if Sonja had an affair? It seems like he is very angry at her so maybe my theory is correct. Sonja Sonja Sonja. Who knows?

            • Amy Matheson says:

              Doesnt Sonja keep saying that she was tossed aside by her husband for another woman — and that’s why she was so emotional when the fake gypsy fortune teller said that another woman was thinking about Mario.

            • JillhAter says:

              Had to be her tacky and nouveau riche ways. Must of woken up and got the hell outta there.
              There are a lot of Morgans in NYC and they are all high brow and none are ever in the media.
              Search them-find almost nothing.
              When they did that spread for Quest magazine where they posed on a couch. I would almost gamble a fortune on that his family chastised him for doing that shoot.
              She was a hostess who recruited business men to lunch at the restaurant she worked for.
              I wonder who Mr. Morgan left her for.

            I would love to see how many days she would have stayed employed if she had continued with skating a joined a show. As usual Jill is telling the director what to do.

            • FLG says:

              It would have been interesting to see how Jillzy would have done on Skating with the Stars against Bethenny. I think I know how that would have turned out. 8)

              • Dee says:

                That would have been GENIUS!! All her whining and complainin’…

                  At some point even Judge Johnny Weir would have had to be either honest or admit a conflict of interest.

    • She really has no sense of rhythm or timing. I think she started falling on 3 – 2 or thereabouts. What’s up with that? That – combined with being completely off beat in LuLu’s video. Has she ever danced on camera??

      If they have a flat tire, it won’t be a problem. They can just remove the flat and bolt on one of her necklaces and they’ll be off and running in no time.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          lol my post didn’t land under Floridagirl88 but way down here so I didn’t want you to guys to think I was just babbling to myself! lol

          • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

            Don’t sweat it. I babble to myself continuously. Hardest the hubby laughed in a loooong time was the day he came home early and snuck in very quietly to surprise me, and found me conducting a full on cooking show for the dogs while cooking dinner. I had no idea he was standing in the doorway, and was demonstrating proper onion dicing technics. complete with full running commentary. He almost popped his hernia back out.

                This is wonderful! I love how helpful and interested the dog is. Thanks for posting this. It’s one to share!

            • MAMAZ says:

              Duchess – I do that too! My daughter was very annoyed with me for “teaching” our boxer how to make pizza one afternoon.

            • Kansas Girl says:

              Oh my gosh, I do the same. I not only talk to myself, I do both sides of the conversation and sometimes with different voices. Highly embarrassing when caught!

              • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

                I just pretend I was praying. When someone asks–“Who in the heck are you talking to?” I just tell them “Jesus!” They usually leave you alone after that. 🙂

            • BlueSky_Forever says:

              lol Duchess! My dogs pay more attention to me when I’m talking to them than the rest of the family. Plus they never talk back or ignore me….do they really love me or is it that I’m the one that feeds them every day, brushes them & plays with them? The big guy even “talks” back to me, he has this way of grunting & sighing. Very funny for a G. shepherd! The female is beyond smart but she’s a brat.

  47. Amy Matheson says:

    Our episode was just on. BOBBY ZARIN IS A COMPLETE *ASS*.

    How dare he confront Simon at a young girl’s sweet 16 party… “if you’re doing something you’d better stop it now” stated in a stern and “threatening” (their usual word) manner – belligerent enough for Mario to feel compelled to step in and ask if they wanted to “take it outside.”

    INAPPROPRIATE, BOBBY Z. Learn some manners. Hint, you might have to look outside that fabulous group your wife runs with in order to learn some.

    Simon and Alex are good at the written word, but have very little verbal skills when it comes to holding their own in confrontations. They need douchebag lessons from the Zarins before they can excel at that.

    • Amy Matheson says:

      Kelly = instigator
      Luann = instigator and “mind your own business-hypocrite”

      Both = jackasses. Thus their friendship with Jill makes perfect sense.

      They remind me of the witches in Macbeth stirring up the pot…. (sorry if this insults any of the witches in Macbeth.)

  48. VAgirl says:

    I was near a Total Wine store today and dropped in and got a bottle of Ramona’s Pinot Grigio. There were only two bottles left on the shelf. I hope she makes a fortune from this venture. I plan on making her recipe for Sangria that she had in one of her past newsletters.

  49. BlueSky_Forever says:

    Channel 13 public tv in the NY/NJ area is showing the 4th of July celebration in Washington D.C.
    Little Richard “good golly miss molly” you still are rocking it! For an over the hill gang member like me this is sooo good!

    • VAgirl says:

      I just started watching it. It’s the closest to fireworks I’m going to get this year. They are awsome.

      • BlueSky_Forever says:

        How’s Ramona’s wine? lol I sure would like some sangria too! Sigh my hubby is away & my son is with his friends. Think I’ll call my 86 year old mom to see how she’s doing.

        The fireworks are good…what a country we are blessed to be a part of. All these patriotic songs they are playing now…Stars & Stripes Forever, God Bless America, with the fireworks in the background. Brings back memories of marching band days of long ago!

        • VAgirl says:

          I haven’t tried it yet, but I’ll let you know. I was part of a marching band in hight school. I didn’t play an instrument, but was a majorette. I could twirl a mean baton!

          • Kelley says:

            Me too! We even twirled fire, did you?

          • BlueSky_Forever says:

            Awww those were the days, marching in a high school band. Small towns do big celebrations for 4th of July. My mom told me one of the floats in my hometown’s parade was a memorial to all the 9/11 victims. They had people & kids carrying placards with all the victim’s names on them. This is in small town in Iowa, far away from NYC. My friends here that lost husbands, brothers, fathers & mothers will be comforted to know that a small town in Iowa does not forget their loved ones.

    Firecrackers and bottle rockets are going off all over our neighborhood. Mr. Tigre is ready to pack up his cat chow and head to Canada for a few days. I offered to send him to France, but he says it’s not big enough for him and Countess No Talent High Horse’s ego. He thinks Jacques must be hanging onto a dock along the coastline somewhere.

    • lillybee says:

      I am giving my greyhound a benedryl in some brie. I hope it will calm her a little.

      • Nancy says:

        Safe dose is 1mg/lb. So a 10 lb dog gets 10mg. etc.
        We already have our cats indoors because they freaked out last yr.
        They aren’t to happy about it. Our Emily is 95% deaf so she will be ok.
        Hope you had fun this weekend.

        • lillybee says:

          She is a 65lb. dog and I just gave her 25 mg. Slipping a pill in some brie is the easiest pill I ever gave an animal.

          • Nancy says:

            You can give her another dose safely if needed.
            I called my Uncle Don who is a Vet and he said it is a avery safe
            drug for dogs. Now I want some brie. 🙂

            • Nancy says:

              Is she a rescue? I’d love to hear her story.

              • lillybee says:

                She is a rescue. She is small for a greyhound, so she flunked out of racing class, she couldn’t keep up with the big dogs. She was two when I got her. It took almost two years for her to trust me, she must have been abused.
                She hated men for a long time and is finally letting them pet her.

                When I got my poodleX rescue, she finally started playing with her toys.

                • Nancy says:

                  I watch The Dog Whisperer a lot and my favorite episode was when he worked with a greyhound. They look so fragile. I got my pug (Emily) at a rescue 17yrs ago. She became my rescue dog so she went everywhere with us. She’s been in 3rd world countries, Italy, Canada, blah blah blah. She doesn’t have to be in a carrier while we fly so she loves traveling. She has been my best friend for 17years. 🙂

                • Kelley says:

                  Lilly, one of my greyhounds hates fireworks too. I’ll be glad when tonight is over. Poor things.

            • IceMeNot says:

              Once I flew across country to bring my daughter’s cat to her. Vet said to give a Benadryl to the 10 lb. boy….but after at least 4 tabs, he was still meowing, for hours. Benadryl did nothing for him! Poor thing, and the passengers sitting next to me never complained when I took him out of his carrier and his hair flew everywhere. Now he lives with me, along with a younger female who tolerates his jealous, mean smacks and his loving kisses– depending on his mood. Hmmm…just thinking that Nature is the same in cats and humans…lol

              • Nancy says:

                We have 2 little feral cats. (blue point, and a seal point.) As soon as they arrived
                we brought them on a plane to Canada and they meowed the entire flight. I was not a popular lady on that flight. We haven’t flown with them since. I forgot how vocal
                siamese cats are.

      • TLM says:

        I’ll take one also. 🙂

    • moneycanbuyyouass says:

      Same here. Between the sonic booms and some kid tooting on a vuvuzelat I am ready for it to be over!! Don’t get me wrong, I love the 4th as much as the next person. Sooo, I solved it by pouring a double SGM and will go watch the fireworks as soon as it is dark enough. I hope I can still see them from my upstairs window because I refuse to join the hoard!! FLG, my kids used to laugh at our 2 female dogs during the fireworks and say they were on a “bad acid trip!! The 50 lber would try to climb under coffee tables! The male dog we have now could not care less.

      • MAMAZ says:

        I just had a SGM on the porch while watching my neighbors fireworks. I was planning on turning in early but it doesn’t look like they are stopping anytime soon, lol.
        My dogs don’t mind as long as they are inside.

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Things just got really started here, as it finally got dark enough. We’ve got the neighborhood yahoos and I’m close enough to the big city production to hear the deep booms. Ed has decided we’re under attack. He has stretched out in the kitchen to guard his food. Otherwise, things could go totally haywire. As long as he’s got a full bowl of food to nibble from, his world is secure.

    • Things are just heating up in our neighborhood. Sampson (cat) is sure the world is ending. Tonto (cat) is watching with disdain and probably thinking ” These pathetic humans are so easily entertained”.

      My Boxer is old, deaf and unbothered, my Frenchie is curled up next to me snoring.

      • Nancy says:

        How is it having a Boxer? Do they get along with cats?
        We are talking about getting one after my Emily is gone.
        (That was a hard sentence to write) Do they have health problems?

        • VAgirl says:

          Nancy, I don’t know much about boxers and don’t know what size dog you want, but I can say without a doubt the best dog I’ve ever had was a Miniature Schnauzer. He was the sweetest thing and had the best personality I’ve ever seen in a dog and I’ve had many in my lifetime. Everyone I know who owns a Miniature Schnauzer would not have any other dog. The only reason I didn’t get another one was because they are hard to get from rescues because they are so popular and I wanted to get a rescue. But if I ever get another dog, it will be a Mini Schnauzer, no ifs ands or buts.

    • Nancy says:

      What kind of “doggies” do you have?

      • VAgirl says:

        Heinz 57. Both small. One is poodle/chiwawa (sp) at 9 lbs and the other looks exactly like a fox (about 10 lbs) I think he has some pomeranian in him,

        • MAMAZ says:

          I love my boxer. Someone else on here has one too. Jezzibelle I think.
          I don’t have any cats so I wouldn’t know about that.
          Sadly they do have some health problems. All the smoosh faced dogs do. But their personalities are great. He’s so serious and dignified, or so he thinks, we find him comical. Sweet as can be.
          The Frenchie, another smoosh face is a darling. A little clown.
          I think most dogs will like cats if they are socialized with them when they are young.

          • lillybee says:

            I had a boxer when I was a child. Best dog ever. Whenever my mom got abusive, he would stand on his hind legs and push her away from me.

            • MAMAZ says:

              I switched computers. My husband had enough fireworks and decided to go to bed.
              lillybee – I’m so sorry you had to deal with such issues. It breaks my heart. Not surprised the boxer intervened. They are very smart and loving animals.

              Nancy – They don’t live as long as other breeds. Mine is 11 which is very old for a boxer. I don’t think we’ll have him much longer as his health is really starting to go. 😦

              • VAgirl says:

                Nancy, my mini Schnauzer lived to be 17. The only major medical problem they seem to have is bladder stones, which can be taken care of if you catch them early. If not, they need surgery. Mine did. Then most need to go on a special diet to prevent them from recurring. Not trying to compete with boxers here Mamaz. I love ALL dogs.

  60. Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

    My Misty is doing great. She fell asleep and when a really loud Boomer went off she opened one eye and gave this very deep heavy sigh. Then went back to sleep. Jake is another story. He is really shaking hard. Even with the benedryl he is completely freaked out. I hope the neighbors stop soon. I am not sure how well a fat lady in her pj’s, bitching about the fireworks on behalf of her dog would be received over there. Hmmmm…..

    • VAgirl says:

        • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

          and that is one of my fav. movies of all time. Along with My Big Fat Greek Wedding. And Jaws. I know, how does Jaws fit in? I dunno. I just have always loved that movie.

          • VAgirl says:

            Yes, weird combination for sure. Steel Magnolias is one of my favorites, too. Another of my favorites is Moonstruck. I love that movie.

          • Smompy says:

            Oooh, oooh, ooh, Jaws…my sister and I were extras in that movie! And so was Chelsea Handler, apparently. I heard her mention it on her show once. Steel Magnolias? Blech! Julia Roberts and her big hair couldn’t die fast enough for me.
            But to each her own:)

            • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

              Now that is some cool shit. Sorry for the cursing, but nothing else will convey the strength of how cool I think that is. Holy Mother of Margarine, that is cool. details, please.

              • smompy says:

                Details from me, you mean? Ok, but I warn you, it’s not very interesting. We were staying at my grandparents house on Martha’s Vineyard and we heard they were hiring locals to appear as extras in some movie they were filming. We were very young and had never heard of the book or anything. But along with hundreds of others we got hired. We were only in one scene which they filmed near West Chop…the scene where the police chief was up in that tower thingy on the beach and he thinks he sees a shark which of course causes pandemonium and everyone in the water gets panicky and runs up onto the sand. They made us doing that – get into the water and then run back up onto the beach – for what seemed like an. It stopped being fun after the second or third time. And we’ve never been able to find ourselves in the finished movie, not even when examining the DVD of it frame by frame. We did get to watch them operate the mechanical shark from a little floating raft, though, and I remember thinking that was the coolest thing I’d ever seen. Unfortunately that one day was both the beginning and the end of my brilliant Hollywood career:)

    Did anybody else have the thought that the initials on Bobby’s shirt should have been “BJZ” for Blow Job Zarin?? I have been amusing myself with that thought for awhile now!!

    I live in a fairly safe neighborhood, small town with 3300 or so. I still don’t know how to tell a heavy duty firecracker from a gunshot – and that is what it sounds like around here! It makes me stop and appreciate those who are serving our country, living under constant battle conditions. Why do we feel we must emulate it? Isn’t there a better way?

    Good night to all of you, may your year ahead be filled with peace and prosperity. May all of you with loved ones in the service have them come home safe and whole. May our prayers for world peace still be offered and not scorned.

    I think things are winding down here. The kids are both in now, the husbands in bed. Time for me to turn in too.

    On this 4th of July, I would like to close by offering a shout out of thanks to ALL of the Veterans who have served. I would like to offer special recognition to the Veterans of the Korean Conflict and the Vietnam War. They received less than a hero’s welcome home and deserved better. I would like to thank those Americans who lost their lives on American soil fighting for the Civil Right’s Movement. I hope we will always continue to share the Dream that all people are created equal and deserve equal protection under the law. To those who are currently serving, may you come home safely and whole. To our wounded, healing is a process, I hope each day will become easier. To those who lost their lives on 9/11. To the above listed, their loved ones and those I failed to mention. You have each placed a unique footprint upon the history of this Nation. Thank you!

    So, I was inspired to watch Celeb rehab (thanks) tonight ondemand. Haven’t watched it really ever sometimes here and there at work. For some reason some felt it was appropriate for our crisis clients to watch. Anyways, nice recap above. My only hope is Jeremy Jackson can get educated in there as well. I spit out my cherry Coke when he said minerals in water cause bisexuality. Like wow, really? Maybe Dr. Dru will be able to help him work through his homophobia. Sean Young’s Amy Fisher questions cracked me up. Like she hasn’t killed anyone lately? Lol

      I almost died laughing when she said that. I feel sad for Sean and Amy. IMHO they have a long road to sobriety.
