I Hate Jill Zarin The Real Housewives of New York News

I Hate Jill Zarin  The Real Housewives of New York – More of The Blogs

Tonight Bravo airs a new episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey.  I know you’re all in withdrawal after two weeks without our Jersey girls so let’s finish up on the New York “ladies” so that we can focus on Jersey tomorrow.  Stop back tonight to chat during the Real Housewives of  New Jersey.

Kelly’s blog starts off trying to snark at  Sonja and Ramona but as with all things Kelly, she fails miserably:

So, Sonja, Avery, and Ramona decide to go to shop for Sonja’s burlesque costume at a downtown haunt called, Patricia Fields. (Sonja, Patricia Fields is downtown, are you sure you’ll be safe?!!) Patricia Fields is a New York icon and her store has been a haven for nightclub goers for decades. You may know/recognize Patricia — she was the stylist for the Sex and the City. Why are Ramona, Sonja, and Avery picking out costumes for Sonja’s burlesque party? What do you think about Avery coming to pick out burlesque clothes?

Is Sonja sure she’ll be safe?  What the hell are you talking about?  Why wouldn’t they be picking out outfits for Sonja’s burlesque party?  That is why they are there you moron!  What do we think about Avery picking out berlesque clothes?  She looked like she was having fun, she chose not to attend the party, what’s your point?  At sixteen, Avery is a mature young lady and there is no reason why she shouldn’t be there in this “Iconic” store with her mom and Sonja.  This is the best you’ve got Bensimon?

Kelly rambles on…

I have to be honest, I was not really in a partying kind of mood. It was late on a Friday, I had to get my girls to the beach right after, and it wasn’t clear what the point of the party was. We were merely invited to another theme party Sonja was having.

No need to explain Kell Kell, you were in a “mood”, you should have stayed home.  The point of the party?  What is the point of any party?  To have fun, idiot!  Next time we’ll ask Sonja to send you a complete synopsis on the party along with the menu, budget and some tips on how to enjoy a party.  Example 1.  arrive on time for a change 2.  stay for longer than 10-minutes  3.  stop questioning why you’re there and just enjoy the party.

As for processing problems, many people deal with grief in a variety of ways. I grieved over my divorce for a long time. I made the right decision for me and my children, but it is very scary to lose all of your friends and the lifestyle that some men afford women, and work to reinvent yourself.

We know that you didn’t make the decision for you and your children, Giles made the decision to kick you to the curb!  After getting to know you, who can blame the man?  I only blame him for marrying you in the first place.  What was he thinking?  If you lost “friends” in the divorce, they were never your friends to begin with.  How exactly have you lost your lifestyle?  You still have no job, a free home in New York City, a free house in the Hamptons and you travel all over the country at will, tweeting constantly.  You told us that your ex-husband left you alone all the time anyway, sounds like your life hasn’t changed much at all.  This “woe is me” routine isn’t working here baby!

From Kelly’s blog, word for word, I kid you not:

LuAnn is a very special woman. I’ve grown to love her. At first, I was intimidated but her emotional strength and impressed with her ability to weed through the bad seeds.

This woman wrote three books and is writing another….yeah ok!

More from Kelly about Luann:  Now, I want to know all the tricks of her trade. I don’t need a “moment” with her, we just like to be together and talk, and talk, and talk, and talk.

The “tricks of her trade”?  Is Lulu a hooker now?  What the hell?…. going on about Lulu…

To her, it’s not how her relationship ended, it’s how her new chapter begins that’s interesting.

Of course Lulu’s not interested in talking about how she lost her “Count”, he cheated and he dumped her in an email.  End of story.  Her new chapter is interesting?  To whom?  Pea brain Kelly, that’s whom.

I hope you’re sitting down as Kelly isn’t finished yet…

Jill and Ally. Oh my god. Ally and I are so alike. My mother always used to take me for lunch and shopping. All I wanted to talk to her about was my religion classes, anthropology courses, and urban studies. College is such an amazing experience. Ally is sowing her intellectual seeds, and I love to live vicariously though her. I think I may have worn that shirt to lunch with my mom when I was 19, too.

This proves what I’ve been saying for a long time now, Kelly is watching Jill Zarin and her daughter having lunch.  Kelly relates to the teenager.  Kelly doesn’t think about when her daughter will go off to college, instead Kelly regresses back to when she was a teenager.  Kells has the intelligence level and brain of a young teenager, does she think that the remark about the shirt that Kells would have worn in 1987 was a compliment to Ally?

I’m arduously working on my new book #icanmakeyouhot, and eager to hear of any of your favorite recipes.

KKBStyle

Why does Kelly want OUR recipes for her book?  SHE can make you hot?  With OUR recipes?  If reading Kelly’s tweets is any indication, her book is going to be a complete joke!

Kelly got herself a “word of the day” calendar.

ar·du·ous   http://sp.dictionary.com/dictstatic/d/g/speaker.swf [ahr-joo-uhs or, especially Brit., ahr-dyoo-]  Show IPA

–adjective

1.

requiring great exertion; laborious; difficult: an arduous undertaking.
2.

requiring or using much energy and vigor; strenuous: making an arduous effort.

As she was on screen talking about being mean-tweeted, Kelly was mean tweeting….oh yes she was!

I think parent should be good role models/ accountable. Wasn’t keen on #burlesque

I got a lot of heat for filming #burlesque. Should mothers be attending “strip” scenes. I wasn’t thrilled about filming it. Thoughts?

wow. Comparing modeling for @playboy to filming a #burlesque. Apples and oranges. Good comment, though. Anyone else?

#wwhl love my Carson Kressley. @bravoandy be nice to Carson, he’s a good friend

Kelly is so ridiculous! She’s worried about what her daughter’s think about her attending a burlesque show yet her nude photos appeared in Playboy just last year.  Her daughter’s were on screen telling her that they were mortified but Kelly simply says, “I know they love me”.

Thanks to Boston02127 for this link:

http://daytona.craigslist.org/rnr/2486189759.html

I just watched this video of Kelly Bensimon answering questions about love and marriage and my brain truly hurts ….  the problem is, she is serious.  Kelly is so anxious to defend the Kardashians that she’ll say anything, if it had been someone she didn’t want to suck up to, she’d be singing a different tune.  (please don’t sing Kelly, don’t take everything so literally)

http://www.kellykillorenbensimon.com/blog/kkb-love-advice-is-a-short-courtship-before-marriage-ok/

She makes absolutely NO sense whatsoever!  You can see the interviewer’s excitement at getting to reveal Kelly’s stupidity.

Kelly has a real “Hater” here, there is a new blog called, “I Hate Kelly Bensimon” and Kelly herself has acknowledged the blog and even offered to help her write it….Hysterical!  Kelly Tweeted this to the blog owner:

@KKBensimonHater not crazy about the blog, write it like a skit for #snl and be creative with it. Then, i’ll follow. Use bigger picts,too.

@KellyBensimon says:  @KKBensimonHater I love it! I have my own mean tweeter. Send me the blog so we can work on making it better. I hate mediocrity.

@KellyBensimon says:  just for my amusement give me ur best #replaceawordinafamousquotewith duck.

Kelly really does need to get a hobby.

@KellyBensimon says:   if you love my hair, read this now. its all about Irion curls. http://t.co/UawLkn2

If you love Kelly’s hair I feel sorry for you!

@kellybensimon #Icanmakeyoudrunk coming soon 😉

Kelly can make me drunk?  Pass!  Let me guess, something better than Kellaid?  Another cocktail by Kelly?  Could this woman be anymore desperate to be Bethenny?

@KellyBensimon says:  Tweet me ‘friends and family first’ picts and i’ll put the best on my blog.

Do you want a picture of your family on Kelly’s blog?

@KellyBensimon says:  Umm. So, my book American Style is being used as a textbook in Universities like FIT #soflattered

Ok just STOP IT!   If this is true I weep for the education system.  If the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York is using Kelly’s book as a textbook and forcing students to purchase it, they just lost all credibility.  Students, you must boycott the use of Kelly’s book, the woman can’t write and she has no style!

More advice on love and marriage from the Kellster…. she’s an expert having  been divorced for many years, arrested for abusing her boyfriend and remains single even after announcing publicly that she’s looking for a husband…

http://www.hollywoodlife.com/2011/07/05/kelly-bensimon-love-advice-housewives/

Why is Hollywood Life asking this woman for advice?  Are they that desperate for a celebrity?  There must be some B or C list celebrity who actually knows what they’re talking about.  Kelly’s a D-list moron!

Kelly continues to tweet using hashtags like #Kelfit and #Kelstyle, completely missing the point of the hashtags, does she really and truly think that people are searching for her tips on health, fitness and style?

World pie for chicken caesar, beach, bbq with friends. Wearing old teeshirt, sequin mini, flip flops #kkbstyle

Sequin skirts are the new denim minis. Get creative for this weekend. #kkbstyle

Taking a run on west side hwy. what a beautiful day #kellyfit

Drink one extra glass of water with lemon or lime today #kellyfit

Does anyone else immediately wonder what the traffic is like on the West Side Highway?

And Now a few Tweets from Bethenny:

@Bethenny Jason just bought bryn a $5 cookie.if I was hallucinating from hunger he wouldn’t buy me a $5 cookie.

What’s everyone doing tonight?cookie myself&jason are having a picnic in bed.bryn is sound asleep.

Why is jason torturing me and making me watch the “silence of the lambs” sequel w julianne moore?

Best day ever swimming in the pool w bryn & a group of ladies. #noboysallowed

New weekly blog on my website,its called “Ask Bethenny”.Submit questions 4 me 2 answer.This wk I answer relationship q’s:http://ow.ly/5yfUR

I came home from dinner.cookie sleeps in bryn’s room when we’re gone. 🙂

In contrast, Jill is on vacation in Europe but still won’t shut the hell up, from her Twitter.

Yes, she is tweeting now to Sarah Ferguson, ex-wife of Prince Andrew of England.  Dream on Zarin, she doesn’t even know who you are!  Jill’s pathetic attempts to suck up to real celebrities is embarrassing and I don’t know why she refuses to stop!  Even the Kardashians won’t respond to Jill Zarin!  You can read all her Tweets here:

http://twitter.com/#!/Jillzarin

Tonight after The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Jay Mohr will host Watch What Happens Live with NJ Housewife Kathy and her husband Rich.  It should be interesting.

Until Next Time…

  1. plainviewsue says:

    I’m first!!! Jill is such a desperate wanna be. Lynn, I saw you were tweeting with her cyber assistant Maggie, so I tweeted her as well. Of course, I am now blocked!

    I went down her tweets and she tweeted everybody and i mean EVERYBODY in news, entertainment, etc. about Jill ringing the bell at the NYSE!! Does Jill truly believe that network news could give a shit about that??????

    What a desperate fool!!!!

    • LynnNChicago says:

      I actually enjoyed my few Tweets with Mags LOL She takes everything so seriously, it’s hysterical. She told me I should be more “professional”. This may be her “real job” (I pity her) but this is FUN for me, why would I want to be more professional? I have to do that all day at work LOL

    • pidge says:

      first off, it was Nasdaq, not NYSE.

      secondly – re:Shill tweeting Sarah F – Lady Brooks’ last blog was about the similarities between Shill and the Duchess. Hmmmm. Is this proof Shill really does read all the blogs? Despite her professed vow to move past the “Juvenile Haters”?

  2. JillhAter says:

    IMO, the only way Jill Zarin would connect with the Duchess if it’s being arranged through a media placement consultant.

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      Or Fergie needed drapesfor a NY apt. and Jillkilla tells the designer “cut out you’re through”! She’ll take the order herself, ask for a glass of water and tweet “Just had drinks with the DutchessFergie…I die!”.

    • AZ Girl says:

      Maybe Jill wants Fergie to be the spokesperson for her girdle line.

    • maggie_01bklyn says:

      I really should not be away from my computer all day….. reading all this late….
      I have a question, should Shrill be reaching out to Duchess Fergie ?????
      If Jill and the Duchess become friends, this could put her on the outs with the Countless.
      First the Countless will hate being upstaged, and it will put LuMan in a bad spot with her good friend Prince William.
      Think about it Shrill!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Jezzibel says:

    why would I buy a self-help book(not that I would) from Kelly when she’s already putting all of her tips/styling advice/and our recipes on twitter for free

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      Quite the media mogul isn’t she?

      (shaking my head)

      • Jezzibel says:

        if I were desperate(which I’m not) to get my hands on Kelly’s latest tome(again still not) all I would have to do is go on twitter copy and paste all her tweets that have the hash tags #kkbstyle #kkbfit ..paste on a word document add a few of my favorite recipies and print…..she’s a moron

      • Christine says:

        And, lest we forget, the smell queen.

    • Mookies1mom says:

      I bet that publishing company wish it never made that book deal.

      • BessiB says:

        Anyone here in publishing? Do these girls even get paid for these Vanity Projects? It is called “an advance” when they get $$ up front, so do they not have to pay it back when the book fails to recoup the publishing costs?

        • Mookies1mom says:

          Good questions! I’m not in publishing but I’m sure there must be contracts and that would probably dictate what happens. Hopefully, somebody in publishing can enlighten us.

          • MAMAZ says:

            I’m not in publishing but I do know the publishing industry is in serious trouble. My guess is that they have made an agrement with NBC to publish X amount of books by their Bravolebrities. I doubt there is any advance. Bravo is probably paying the printing cost. They get lots of advertising even when the books don’t do well. The publisher gets the advertising as well as a cut of any profit with very little investment from them. Just a guess.

        • Sam says:

          Yes, me. I’ve had books published. And no, the author doesn’t have to give the advance back if the book fails to “earn out.” (As in, earn enough to cover the advance — and an author doesn’t start getting royalties until the book has done this.) Consequently the publisher employs people who specialize in figuring out what a book is likely to earn, and this estimated figure is taken into account when the book deal is made.

          However, most book contracts — especially nonfiction ones — are signed long before the book actually comes out, and this was the case with Jill’s book. So she wasn’t yet “the villain” of the show when her publisher estimated what her sales figures would be, which means that Jill probably got a nicer advance than we’d like, along with the commitment to come out with a paperback edition as well as a hardback.

          The publisher obviously tried to compensate for this disaster by pulling marketing dollars from the project; that’s why Jill didn’t get a real book tour, only book signings that she set up herself. (Cutting promotional expenses is a common way that publishers try to minimize damage once they’ve realized they’ve made a colossal mistake.) But I heard through the rumor mill that the company still suffered quite a loss, which makes it unlikely that they’d do business with Jill again — unless she’s willing to take a very, very low advance next time. In other words, if there’s another deal, the publisher will do everything possible to minimize the risk of another disaster like this one. (And Jill still won’t get a real book tour.)

          • MaggieG says:

            I’m not in publishing but how likely is it that Kelly would be on her third (or fourth?) book (the current one being the only one released during her stint on RHONY) if her work was not commercially profitable?

            • Sam says:

              All three of Kelly’s existing books were put out by Assouline Publishing, founded by French husband and wife Prosper and Martine Assouline. And because this company is privately owned, the Assoulines can publish whatever they want regardless of whether they think it will make money. So I’m guessing that they’re putting out Kelly’s books as a favor to Gilles and/or because they feel sorry for Kelly.

          • BessiB says:

            Thanks for the answer, Sam.

          • TLM says:

            Yikes. And yet Bethenny’s books are still going through the roof. B probably got less of an advance than she deserved for the first book, since she wasn’t on RH yet. Hopefully they left room for her to renegotiate based on its success. Place of Yes is still on the bestseller list!! Go take a flying leap, Jill!

            • Sam says:

              Even if B’s advance for her first book was modest, I’m sure she did well overall with that project because her sales were good enough for royalties to kick in early-on. And a lot of people in publishing believe it’s better to accept a modest advance and get royalties than to get a substantial advance and no royalties because of how it affects your chances of ever being offered another book deal. (Not having an advance earn out — not getting to the point where it can earn royalties — is a real black mark in the publishing industry.)

              • Sam says:

                I realized that instead of saying “a lot of people in publishing” I should have said “authors and agents,” because I’m speaking from their perspective here, not the publishers’ perspective. (It’s obvious that the publishers would think it’s better for a book to earn royalties!)

    Wow what a Goat Rodeo it’s been !
    Some one said “the press has taken the Schmatta peddler out back and gone Oklahoma on her” and another said

    My John Wayne Southern daddy always said : Don’t argue with a fool !

    I have missed you all and want to send a hug and words of gratitude for your wise comments which I enjoy !
    I would never desert a friend and I am proud to call Lynn one. I am also blessed to be friends with many legitimate stars in the media, arts and finance ;
    Lynn is a rising star plus she is fun, funny and smart(you all already know that!)
    One More in Boston was attacked yesterday because she KNOWS
    Fog Horn’s(Bethany’s name) truth. Reread her words.

    I have missed having birthday parties for LynnFam. Let me blow a big kiss to all the parties I missed and encourage you ladies and gents to continue the tradition. (See Below)

    I know it is very important to let the world know Lyn’s blog is much more than a hater of JZ’s behavior.
    We laugh, cry, encourage, advise, inform , correct, verify and much more.
    I would love for each of you to post about your experience of the non IHJZ part of the Blog and how it has been important to you.
    Again,
    I am grateful for you all, even trolls (paid and otherwise) !
    God Bless You ALL,

    • Rhetorica says:

      WSL, such a nice surprise! I’ve been with Lynn’s blog about a year and have found compassionate, caring people. This blog is the best thing to come out if my “i hate Jill zarin” web search. We laugh, we cry, it’s better than Cats! I am now in your neck in the southern woods via Chicago. I’m so happy for your friendship with Lynn.
      Krone, we share the same bday. Aquarius!

    • Celeste says:

      Thank you for clarification. When I read on twitter that you and Lynn were no longer friends, I became sad. I’m relieved to know that was just another rumor.
      I read the comments way more than I post; but, I always look for certain people’s comments. Glad to know you and Lynn are still a formidable team.

    • 2Stupid says:

      OH Happy Day that WSL has graced us with her presence!!! I knew you have been here all along, but really missed your posts. You not posting made me despise Shill on a whole new level. It kind of became personal. Please know we all care for you and respect you here. I also wanted to thank you for all the help and mentoring you have given Lynn. I hope to one day see Lynn really get paid for all the effort she puts into this blog. You are just the person to help her navigate this dream!

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Hello there, dear! How wonderful it is to see those 3 little letters posting again. We have missed you. Your cheerfulness, your insights, your outrage (and all the rest of you!). I hope you’ll be able to drop by now and then. Perhaps you could be the keeper of the birthday list and just post the month’s birthdays? (That would not be too controversial.) I’m sorry to report we seem to have run out of places to hide the cakes, and all the baking falls to FLG, tho his cheesecake is spectacular. LOL! Wonderful to hear from you! I hope you can come back soon.

      Hello my love,
      You’re a class act!

      I love you beyond Lynn’s blog.

      I know this is late since you posted yesterday and there are other blogs after this one…(Im always behind) but I had to reply here in case you get your replies.

      SO GLAD TO READ FROM YOU!!! I hope all is well and you and yours.
      THANK YOU FOR THE BIRTHDATE LIST!! I hope to see you back soon.

    Here is the only review (cus I doubt it’s been read much) of “American Style” on Amazon:
    “American Style has no continuity where actual word of text is concerned and photographically is just as dire. Yet there is slight redemption in the imagery of this book as thrown together as they may be the images are great, but I just wish the author stayed on topic of an actual timeline in the positioning of the images page to page, from past to present, and put more research in the book, for example there is a close tight shot of a World War II image revealing less of the military style that is referred to in the text while primarily showing the gas mask the model is wearing on one page, followed up with a page with a Raquel Welch photo, it made no sense. This book is less of a history lesson on fashion as I thought it would be, but more of a messy picture book of name-dropped has-been celebrities, referenced pop culture and fashion brands.”

    Hey! Makes no sense and involves a bunch of celeb name-dropping! Sounds about right.

    Check out this link if it wasn’t posted earlier. It’s an article by a licensed, practicing psychiatrist diagonosing Kelly via the Scary Island episodes.
    I didn’t make WSL’s list, but I don’t post very often. I have a very bad taste in my mouth from my posting experience on vulture due to a certain person named bloshka. WSL, I love your Southern John Wayne Daddy’s advice…he was a smart gentleman!

    • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

      Bloshka posted on here and RCH too. didn’t she turn out to be the “reincarnation” of an old poster on here?

      • chris says:

        I don’t know…haven’t posted long enough to know the history. She has a lot of time on her hands and puts it to bad use, imo. I love all your comments; they are so funny and clever.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          She also goes by the name Terry on RCH – to her credit she has curbed her tendency to attack posters personally.

          • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

            See, I just knew someone would know! Nothing gets passed this crew! She posted here and Terry as well, for a while didn’t she? Then disappeared and Bloshka showed up. Now neither of them is here.

            • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

              as, not and. geez.

            • Mookies1mom says:

              I’m telling you this bunch gets to the bottom of things. I love all the information everyone brings. Just remind me to never make you all truly mad ’cause I don’t think it would be pretty! o_o LOL!

        • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

          And, thanks chris. I have a warped sense of humor—extreme sarcasm is in my gene pool. My poor niece has inherited it–just turning 13 and it keeps getting her into trouble with her mom. My brother and I keep trying to explain she has inherited this thing and will eventually grow into a censoring ability, but the trouble keeps coming! LOL

          • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

            For example, the other day her sister was playing on the X-box, and their mom was asking for help with the housework. Finally she exploded and said “I have asked you 3 times to get off that video game and help me with this laundry” Ms. Sarcasm pops her head up from unloading the dishwasher and says “And how is that working out for you, Mom?” Trouble.

            • Rhetorica says:

              LOL! A great niece! My kids picked up my sarcasm & we had some good laughs. Of course, they knew when NOT to use it too)

            • Mookies1mom says:

              LOL! I got that trait from my dad. Doesn’t always work for me but my hubby gets it. Somehow I also inherited “the messy desk syndrome”. I remember my mom always getting on my dad about his desk being a mess. He would simply say “a dirty desk is the sign of clean mind”. That doesn’t go over too well with Mookie’s dad. He “tidied up” my desk and now I can’t find anything!

            • twoile says:

              @D, Very funny niece..can see why her Mom would be peeved………but truly very funny ILOL. TX :0)

          • chris says:

            I have the same gene…my sarcasm seems to go over a lot of heads, tho. A friend of mine gave me some napkins with the saying: “I refuse to have a battle of wits with an unarmed person”. I also need to remember not to try to argue with a fool…one of their favorite tools is the victim card which a certain JZ uses when things aren’t going her way. I don’t buy into that game… Your niece sounds like she will be able to hold her own and I agree, the censoring ability will kick in.

    • lulusview2 says:

      Wow! That article totally explains it all to me…and whether the Dr, is real or fake I think that whoever wrote it is spot on. I love the Queen Baby term! My DIL has pegged Kel as a borderline with bi-polar tendencies as well, and I know others have to. Thanks for that link 🙂

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      Wow! Chris great find!

      Y’all see this?

      “My final diagnosis: Bi-Polar disorder with intense episodes of mania, Queen Baby” disorder, borderline personality disorder, PTSD from somewhere in her life, and according to my daughter whom I trust as much as I do my colleagues, an ‘under the radar’ drug problem of some type. Who knows? She may be on anti-depressants that are displaying awful adverse side effects, and she has no clue. She may have an addiction to benzos such as Xanax or Valium, which if taken in large doses, due to tolerance build up, leaving the person having to take more of the drug than Rx’d, can certainly be a part of her mean, bizarre behavior.

      My suggestion to Kelly and her friends: PLEASE get this young woman who does have children, the help she so despreately needs. She is a time bomb waiting to explode. If she walks away, ignores you, which is highly likely, get a 72 hour ACT placed upon her so she will be forced to go to a psyche unit for at least 72 hours. She is definitely a threat to HERSELF and others.She needs a “TIME OUT”..but not on her terms. Her idea of a time out consists of maybe 2-3 seconds, to maybe 5 minutes.Which is demonstratively shown as just NOT enough Time Out time.

      I see patients like Kelly every day, and there is hope for her..the first step is to just get her somewhere, with a judge’s order, and quickly.I truly believe if she does not get the help she needs, her children will wind up a part of a system that can damage families for a very long time. She does NOT want her kids in foster care.And needs to realize that she is “above that” happening. She is NOT.”

      Best of luck to you all in trying to get her the help she needs.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      Well, you’re welcome here Chris! we love sarcasm! xo

      • chris says:

        Thank you, Lynn…wish I could think of something sarcastic to say right now! Love your blog and the comments. There are a lot of really smart cookies out there, I’m thrilled to see.

    • chris says:

      I have gone back and looked at the article again and read the comments following it. Some of the comments say the doctor isn’t real, but I think it’s an interesting commentary anyway. We all know something is really off with K… The fact that on rare occasions, she almost seems “normal” makes me think she’s taking some kind of anti-psychotic. I know nothing about these drugs, but imagine that when combined with alcohol they don’t work. Hence, her extreme mood swings and word repetitions. She fixates on one person and won’t shut up which is exactly like the bi-polar behavior of my friend’s daughter. Read the article with this in mind…I hope it’s true, but I didn’t do any research on it before posting. Kelly is also mean…don’t think that is a disease!

  8. chris says:

    That’s diagnosing…

    • MAMAZ says:

      chris – Don’t let any single poster keep you away. You are welcome here and we will all do our best to protect you. 🙂

      • chris says:

        Thank you so much! I have let the last bizarre remark (on the other site) go unanswered, which should be more effective than anything else. You are a pretty cool bunch over here!

  9. Indy501 says:

    Wow, getting ready to post and there is the legend (WSL) already posted. Hey Windy City we have the same b’day. Maybe next year we can celebrate over a drink!!

    I was drawn to this blog, obviously, because of our common frustration over the negativity that came over the series and Bravo’s unwillingess to acknowledge. BUT, I come back because in these few short weeks I am drawn to each of your personalities and peeks into your lives. I have a very busy life away from this blog. Wife, mother(to a teenage boy) and busy (thank god) realtor.
    It’s hard to maintain close relationships outside of my little sphere due to everyone’s busy schedules and sadly due to some snark and mean girl behavior in real life. Don’t have the stomach for it. It’s nice during my downtimes to check in with you all and see what’s going on. No one in my real life discusses these shows….I suspect everyone has their secrets,lol. It was also a pleasant surprise to be among such intelligent, thoughtful individuals who were so willing to open themselves up. So, I expect that I will be coming back often even though I don’t watch anything else other than OC,NY & now some BH. I’m a big reader and would prefer to read a book over TV mmost of the time. So there you are….feel free to save for posterity:)

    Anyway, in reference to Jz and the Duchess check out this month’s Vanity Fair and their feature on Fergie’s ex. These people are really truly bottom feeders. So, Jill, you go girl. You sure have a nose for quality people:)’.

  10. lulusview2 says:

    I wonder what brilliant woman came up with the idea to offer to ghost write cookbooks for any of the real Housewives who want to publish one….as we know that none of them have the brain capacity to think up recipes as well as actually cook them…I mean come on otherwise we would have cookbooks with a million ingredientzes and meatloaf made from beer and gummy bears!
    I just love to read all the comments and know that I am not alone in my total disdain for these gals. It’s like a train wreck that my whole family is now drawn to and we just can’t look away!

    WSL is it really you? Oh how I have missed you! Welcome back. Please add me to your list! June 25
    I hope all the bs hasn’t gotten you down. We love you and always have your back.

    • flippy says:

      Long time lurker, infrequent poster here. Also wanted to say “nice to see you again WSL.” Don’t let ’em get you down, kiddo! You know what they say about those who can’t take a joke. I read the blog daily and what I see is a close knit group of friends who need a little time out from their own “reality” each day to visit with each other. Nothing in the world wrong with that. Add me to your list, if you would WSL. February 15. Y’all take care. C

      • zanne says:

        I also don’t post often, but would love to have my bd added – Sept.14, 1937. Old lady!!!!!! I last posted the other day when every thing got messed up. I am taking chemo pills for my cancer and about all I have to do each day is try to keep up with you all. Also have cope so I’m more or less stuck in front of the TV or on here daily, I’m just so thankful for the wonderful people on here you all make me laugh and make me cry and all the emotions in between. Lynn thanks for the great work that you do. zanne

  12. Amy Matheson says:

    Kelly wrote a textbook??? I will never believe it til I see it for myself:

    http://www.amazon.com/American-Style-Kelly-Killoren-Bensimon/product-reviews/2843236088/ref=dp_top_cm_cr_acr_txt?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1

    Excerpts from of actual review of American Style by Kelly Bensimon from Amazon:
    “American Style has no continuity where actual word of text is concerned… it made no sense…a messy picture book of name-dropped has-been celebrities”

    Oh. I guess Kelly did write a textbook. 🙂

  13. WindyCityWondering says:

    I love how so many of us try to diagnose Kelly. She may be mentally ill but the bottomline is she is a very mean and vile person and there is no cure or therapy for the latter. This season we have watched some HWs tiptoe around her illness while other HWs ignore it or worse say there is nothing wrong with her. I didn’t like her before her breakthrough and I don’t like her now – she belongs in a place that will help her deal with her illnesses not on my tv making me sick!

  14. vilzvet says:

    Fantastic blog as always, even better because it’s all about Kelly! Can’t wait til she reads it…
    Yeah, why on earth did she complain about attending Sonja’s party, who needed her there anyway? Did you catch her comment about “having to take her girls to the beach after” do you realize she must have meant the Hamptons, an almost 3 hour drive from NYC on a Friday. How the freak late was she heading there anyway? This reminds me of the time she tweeted how she did a 360 in a snowstorm last winter in a Mercedes, not her trusty truck, with the girls on the Long Island Expressway because she left the city at a careless time during said storm. Worst parent ever! Also .love how you called her out on “her decision” to divorce, LOLOL, it was definitely not her choice!

  15. BessiB says:

    Kelly does not stay more than 10 minutes at a party because anyone that is not High won’t talk to her more that two seconds. So after she say Hiiieeeee to every guy in the room, she is out.

    I cannot stop laughing at Kelly’s one nip……

  16. Amy Matheson says:

    Haha… I remember one of the tweets referenced in the blog today:

    “@KellyBensimon says: just for my amusement give me ur best #replaceawordinafamousquotewith duck.”

    I think it was Andy who responded “who’s gonna fix this? Duck?”

    It’s almost cruel of Bravo to use her psychosis to entertain us.

  17. Has anyone else grown bored with the RHONJ? I cannot say I ever loved it. It was okay, though. It used to be too dominated by the Manzo family. And now it centers on the squabbling Gorgas. The balance of the fun scenes and the drama seems out of whack over there in Franklin Lakes.

    http://priscillafromwasilla.com/

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Bravo started this season with a blast – everything else has been ho hum. Too much Joey Gorga (who really, really, really wants to be on this show), too much family feuding and too much Caroline with too much time on her hands.

      • I agree. I really don’t want to be mean, but Joey Gorga is extraordinarily boring. And that’s okay in real life. But on a TV show about 40-50 year old women it seems so odd to focus any attention on a jacked up guy who is desperate for camera time. In many of these Housewives shows there is a guy who aspires to being one of the girls (Slade, Simon, Dwight), but at least they do something to warrant the attention they get. All Joey Gorga does is brood and act indignant.

  18. Rhetorica says:

    The bday list is so cool! If anyone is not on the list, can you respond to me? I have very good intentions of using this to congratulate everyone but you know where good intentions end up:)

    Hi, WSL. I never had the chance to really chat with you because I’m one of the latecomers, but I’ve heard a lot about you and a lot of people on here admire you, so you must be AOK. Anyway, I’d like to wish a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY to NEROES and SAM today. Happy Birthday to you, Happy Brithday to you, Happy Birthday dear friends, Happy Birthday to you. Hope you both have a happy, happy day.

      Thank you so much for the Happy Birthday song!!!! I love it!

      And like Neroes, I’m having a great day today. I got treated to a brunch this morning, and tonight I get a dinner party, and as someone who’s been on Jenny Craig for months I’m enjoying all this feasting way more than usual!

      (But I don’t get my big present ’til the end of this week: a puppy! He was too little to come home with me today.)

  20. blondieDana says:

    Hello! I found this blog not too long ago, and I have not commented yet, but I am ready to come out and play! I have been reading the comments on Simon’s blog, and some of them really irk me. How can anyone say that those pictures with the funny bubbles is wrong? I actually put the one of Bethenny on the cover of Forbes on my Facebook wall. I still laugh when I see it.

  21. BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

    WSL~The reason this blog has been wonderful is because I know someone will always have my back here as they used to say in Queens NYC.
    No matter what is happening good or bad, we can talk about it & somebody always can relate or just be there to listen.
    Thank you again Honey Pie Lady as they say in Kentucky where I am now with the baby bunny!

    • lillybee says:

      Hey, I grew up in Queens. Loved it there.

      • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

        Hi Lillybee that’s fantastic!
        We lived in Rockaway Beach to Long Island & a few places in between.

        • lillybee says:

          It was Queens Village for me. My sister and I would take a bus and the subway to go to the beach at Far Rockaway. Those were the days. I went to St. John’s University.

          • ATLmeetsNYC09 says:

            Lillybee, you dont know me but I went to SJU also. Its awesome to see an SJU alumni on the board.

  22. Why does Joey Gorga get talking heads? Are there any other house husbands that do?? Not Simon – and people are always complaining that he tries to be a housewife. Kelsey Grammer did – but hey – he’s Kelsey Grammer. I can’t think of anyone else though.

    • Amy Matheson says:

      I’ve seen Rich (Kathy) do talking heads. Lots of them do… even Simon (NYC) and Mario. Simon (Tamra) from OC, Donn (Sicky Vicky). Maybe Joe’s are just more fancy.

      I think they all do.. and it’s not just voice overs.

      • ATLmeetsNYC09 says:

        Joe Gorga does get alot of airtime. Most of it unnecessary. Melissa cant be on an episode without him accompanying her and chiming in. I thought this man was so “hardworking”. He doesnt seem to work alot if he is always there when they are filming. I can understand him being used some, since the feud has alot to do with his relationship with Teresa. But this is the Real Housewives, not Family Feud. The center should always be on Teresa and Melissa, not Teresa Melissa and Joey.

    • BessiB says:

      They probably film talking heads from ALL of them. But let’s face it: most of it was probably just unusable. You’ve sat a man down and asked him a bunch of questions, right?

      Even Kelsey’s TH was not comment-worthy. Bravo just slapped it up because he was above D-list.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Joey Gorga is the real new housewife – he is using his wife like a doormat to be on the show!

  23. Amy Matheson says:

    Jay Mohr is guest hosting WWHL tonight? A fact I would have known if I ever bothered with Bravo’s blogs:

    http://www.bravotv.com/blogs/the-dish/move-over-andy-jay-mohrs-taking-over

    Who else thinks that’s not just a clever headline and Bravo is making room for the guy when Andy leaves for greener pastures like Regis’s chair with his BFF Kelly Ripa… or wherever.

    Kinda looking forward to Jay in person. Hope he is funny – because I have to correct myself – I DO read HIS Bravo blog. I wonder if that is part of his audition process.

    • Amy Matheson says:

      ok – whoa. Jay’s put on a couple pounds if that is a picture of him sitting next to Peggy (ew) OC.

    • Amy Matheson says:

      Dang it Lynn. I haven’t had one original thought today!!!

      I usually read the whole blog 😀 It’s Sunday and Im just popping in and out. What can I say… lol.

    • Adgirl says:

      Anyone would look chunky next to Peggy! Jay .. isn’t he married to a Playboy bunny. There are some guys that only date bunnies, like Bill Mahr or Dr Phil’s kid. Notice none of them have mentioned how hot KooKoo is.

      • Amy Matheson says:

        LOL… agreed. Peggy is a twit… I mean a twig. I haven’t seen Jay in anything since that movie he did with Jennifer Aniston a million yrs ago and he was skinny then. Playboy model? Oh Jay….. oh well, he’s a guy.

      • ATLmeetsNYC09 says:

        Hes married to an actress.

    • AZ Girl says:

      I see Jay as a great replacement for Andy. Andy is burnt out. Jay will not put up with the BS that Andy does. Jay’s only downfall is maybe being TOO snarky. The women will get pissed and NOT want to appear on WWHL.

  24. angel says:

    I was channel surfing the other afternoon and came across Ramona on HSN selling her jewelry line. Very nice and a little too pricey for me but she came across as a real business woman. I’m sure that makes certain other women on the show crazy. I think Ramona’s business accomplishments are real and existed before the show. Sure she is more visable now but you can see she’s been in the real business world and knows what she’s doing.

    • LynnNChicago says:

      I love her jewelry, it’s just a bit too expensive.

    • BessiB says:

      I linked to the HSN from here to check them out before the show aired. I do like one of the earrings enough I almost bought them, but I would actually rather pay more and have white gold, rather than silver (too much cleaning involved).

      Did the show go well for her as far as sales, go?

      • kellynnola says:

        I bought a silver bow cross from her line last year, and it is lovely. Her jewelry is a bit expensive, but actually sells for way less then the quality price.

    • kbinldo says:

      I agree. Her jewelry is beautiful, but dang, way out of my price range.

  25. Adgirl says:

    I’m so excited to see WSL !! Hi Lady how have you been? I hope you are just as tickled as we are about your (off screen) appearance on RHNY. What a hoot! I was screaming at my hubby “The BLOG is on tv!!” I know there is more to come! LOL.
    Smooches!!!

    Wow, I came back just in time to witness a visit from WSL! How nice!

    Indy501, I read that VF article on Andrew/Fergie, too. Bottom feeder is the indeed right description for the both of them. Royal grifters is all they are. Fergie would fit right in with Jill’s fabulous circle of friends (LuMann, KooKoo, Dina Lohan, Patti Stanger, etc) , for sure.

  27. LavaLady says:

    Welcome Back WSL – It’s nice to see you again. Hope all is well. Would love to hear what you think of the NJ Housewives this season.

    Happy Birthday to Sam and Neros! Have a wonderful day.

    • Mookies1mom says:

      Happy B-day to Sam and Neros!

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Sam! Happy birthday! Your cake is an ice cream cake and I hid it on the front porch. It’s 97 out there with a heat advisory, so I hope you find it fast! (I’ve got straws if you’re late and have to drink it, lol!)

      • Sam says:

        LOL!

        You’d better send those straws over right away!!!! You hid that cake just a little too well!

        (But even melted, it sure looks good — so thanks for sending it to me!)

    • Sam says:

      Yes, thanks LavaLady and Mookies1mom, and MamaZ too!

  28. AZ Girl says:

    USA! Women beat Brazil!!!! in shoot out.

    • moneycanbuyyouass says:

      My son and I watched it too, seemed like the longest game ever!!! USA was lucky to pull it out as they were 1 team member short due to a red card issuance.

    • lillybee says:

      Great. Way to kick ass, ladies.

  29. Mookies1mom says:

    Just watched Kelly’s love advice. 1) Why did I do that to myself? 2) Apparently, I shouldn’t have married Mookie’s dad because we were together too long before we got married and knew each other too well. 3) Why do people keep acting like she makes sense? 4) I’m going to just bang my head on my desk for a while. Or at least until I can remember that she is certifiable!

    • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

      Mookies1mom,
      You forgot the basic rules of reading ANYTHING posted by Kelly. Let’s review.
      1. Pull bottle of the stiffest, strongest booze you have in the house and pour a slug–you will need it to steady your nerves.
      2. Next review deep calming breath exercises from your yoga program of choice. Bethanny has a good one, or you can view some quick videos on You Tube.
      3. Be sure you have hidden any sharp object that could be used when you become so frustrated you decide to either slit your own wrists, gouge out your eyes or simply stab the computer screen. All of these are bad options and if you can’t find the sharp objects you will be much safer.
      4. Finally, grab your first aid kit, smelling salts and a bag of frozen peas from the kitchen to ensure you are prepared for the eventual and inevitable head banging on the desk which will occur at some point. After banging use the smelling salts to avoid passing out, the first aid kit to bandage any damage done by the wood to flesh contact and the bag of peas to controll swelling bumps. Feel free to repeat step 1 here if necessary.

      • Mookies1mom says:

        That’s great advice Duchess! Although, I think repeat step 1 as often as necessary rather than if necessary would be my choice.

    It’s such a beautiful day in Boston, I had to go for a walk- and what do I run across? The new Improper Bostonian with Bethenny on the cover and with Bethenny’s Best of Boston because..ta da…she went to BU (my alma mater)- and was a cocktail waitress at M-80.
    Never knew!

    Here’s the cute interview:

    • happygal says:

      Thanks, OneMoreInBoston, for the cute article on B. It was quick and current-
      Your humor and comments are really great, making me laugh and enjoying this group all of the time- Also- so glad WSL checked in- woo hoo- love her take on things too-

  31. Adgirl says:

    Attention!
    This is The DumbAss speaking:
    Sarah, Duchess of York is commanded to appear with me at the Mohegan Sun casino in CT where we star in “After the Title Dumps You”. Featuring our new song “Riches Dude Me Marier”. $50 per person, cash only.

    • RealMinkey says:

      I wonder if Lisa V or any of the other BH ladies got to mix with Will and Kate on their trip out there. That would just make Jill and LuLu go crazy, wouldn’t it?

  32. OneMoreInBoston says:

    test

  33. OneMoreInBoston says:

    wth? I had a whole post go missing…

  34. OneMoreInBoston says:

    ok lemme try this again-

    Just saw the new Improper Bostonian with Bethenny on th ecover. She has Bethenny’s Best of Boston, because she went to BU (my alma mater) and was a cocktail hostess at M-80. I never knew!

    here’s the cute interview:

    Ok it must not be taking because there was a link in my post?

    lynn?

    heps me?

    @
    of course we love the fans to stop in and say hi @Zarinfabrics

    Jill tweeted this 6 hours ago, I removed who she tweeted it to. So, when did stopping across the street to take a photo become a crime?

    • RealMinkey says:

      The rule is, if you’re banned from her tweet list, you’re not allowed within a block radius of Zarin Fabrics.

    • BaaBee Loves Kitties says:

      Hi Mooks~
      Just go outside with the bread in your hand & talk softly~the bunny got used to me very fast because it was a little baby 1 month ago.
      I thought JZ would be happy to have any free advertising 🙂 lol

    • Don’t fall for it. It’s a trap. They’ll accuse you of stalking.

      • Mookies1mom says:

        Yeah, not gonna happen. If I go to NYC Zarin Fabics is safe because that is the last place I would want to visit! I might be tempted to do something stupid and it certainly wouldn’t be worth it! Don’t worry Jill I’d rather do soooo many other things than visit your skeevy husbands fabric store! But if you run into me at a museum it’s your own damn fault!

        • Nancy says:

          If I lived in NY I would make a T-shirt that said…
          I love Bethenny and I would visit Zarin fabrics often.
          And of course not buy anything.

          • Pghemtchick says:

            I think it’d be fun to be on the corner street vending anti-Jill wear. I can see a line of tshirts now: the classic red circle “no” symbol with her head, a “skweeeeze” this with a certain finger gesture, and a free Ginger with the nose mining graphic. I wonder how many times a day the police would be called.

          • Sam says:

            Or you could take a page out of Jill’s book by buying lots of things and then returning them all. (For cash, not store credit.)

  37. Mookies1mom says:

    I hope that doesn’t get you in trouble Lynn! I don’t know anything about twitter. I did sign up for an account but I have never used it.

  38. smompy says:

    Wall Street Lady, it was so nice to see your comment this morning. I was pretty much absent while all the mishigas that you got dragged into was going on, but I was very sorry to learn what you went through. But good for you for weathering such a storn with class & dignity. And I’m not talking about the kind of imaginary dignity which LuAnn GaGa claims to live with in her own…um…sorry, I just CAN’T call it a song! How about if I call it her “spoken word recording”? Anyway, not that kind of “dignity.” Clearly yours is the real kind:)

    I often get a kick out of Jill’s claims of friendhip with various celebrities, because they usually turn out to just be random television personalities who Jill sent annoying tweets to and then immediately labelled her “close friend.” But she did actually appear to know Robbie WIlliams somehow, and that seemed totally bizarre to me. Not that Robbie Williams is such a huge star or anything, but he certainly never struck me as the type of celebrity who’d put up with wannabe douchebags and hangers-on such as Foghorn Zarin, not unless he had a pretty good reason. OK, so now I see that he does indeed have a reason for letting Susan-Jennifer Saunders-Shapro-Zarin enter the outer perimeter of his orbit of fame….maybe not a “good” reason but a reason. Newlyweds often make sacrifices to please their spouses, and it looks like Robbie WIlliams is no exception.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-1346677/Robbie-Williams-wife-Ayda-Field-lunches-The-Real-Housewives-Beverly-Hills.html

    • Adgirl says:

      Bravo tried to sign up Robbie William’s wife to RHBH but had to settle for Brandi whatshercrazyexwifeofsomebody. He is supposed to be somebdy big, maybe moe in England.
      This looks like Jill and Lisa (who probably knows the Willams well) and a Bravo producer trying to recruit her. She declined but maybe gave everyone backstage passes to his London show. Of course Jill has to go and tweet about how special she is.

      • vilzvet says:

        I only know Robbie Williams from the song “Angels”. You can check it out on youtube. Beautiful song also covered later and very well by Jessica Simpson. He is definitely a big star in the UK but did not catch on here.

    • BessiB says:

      Looks like Lisa is doing most of the wining and dining, and Jill is just present – looking around or the camera, holding Lisa’s dog for her while Lisa poses…

  39. MKValle says:

    Tweet from our buddy Jill…she can’t possibly mean what she wrote, I thought she considered it stalking!

    @ @MandyKavanaugh of course we love the fans to stop in and say hi @Zarinfabrics!

    • Nancy says:

      See Lynn, you should have gone inside Zarin Fabrics because then you wouldn’t have been called a stalker. How dare you stand across the street of a fabric store and take a picture. Th nerve. I’m going to call “America’s Most Wanted” on you. Maybe even the FBI.

      • Adgirl says:

        OMG Where’s Waldo and Dora the Explorer are stalkers too!!!.

      • LynnNChicago says:

        LMAO, I don’t regret not going inside but I do regret not saying “HI” to Bobby when he pulled up out front. He seemed to be in a really big hurry! Maybe Jillsy was waiting for him at a jewelry store or something…

  40. OneMoreInBoston says:

    Bethenny has an interview and is on the cover of Improper Bostonian. She also has Bethenny Best of Boston because she went to BU and was a cocktail waitress at M-80- I did not know that!

    anyway I can’t get the link to print here- but go to improperbostonian.com and you can see it

  41. kellynnola says:

    I bet Luann would be terribly upset if Lisa met with Will & Kate.

    Luann was on HLN one night last year giving her commentary insight as a “royal” into Sarah the Duchess controversy. Luann then said she knows Fergie. Righht, just like she “knew” Princess Diana. Most likely they just met. I doubt they remembered her at all.

    I think the vid is on youtube.

    • RealMinkey says:

      It wouldn’t be at all surprising if Lisa was invited to a Will/Kate party or two. Unlike the Countless, she’s a real deal society lady.

      • vilzvet says:

        I checked out all the photos of which stars attended the big charity gala last night in CA, and did not see Lisa. People like Tom Hanks, Nicole Kidman, JLO, Jennifer Garner, even Blake Lively went. Oh yes, Streisand too. Looked like a cool affair.

    • Nancy says:

      Kelly,
      How is your son feeling? Did he get to play baseball? Hope so.

      My cousin that lives in Ontario Canada DID meet Will & Kate last week.
      By “meet” I mean standing behind the rope line. He said they were really nice and even
      commented on their baby.

      So take that LuAnn. Royalty my a**

      • kellynnola says:

        Nancy, my son is doing better & his fever is at 99. It looks like he most likely will get to play in his baseball game on Tuesday!

        That is so cool about your cousin & doesn’t surprise me- Will and Kate seem very down to earth.

  42. kbinldo says:

    Sarah Ferguson is broke. Why is JZ tweeting her?

    • Nancy says:

      You’ve made my day! 🙂

        Hey Nancy! You still on?

        • Nancy says:

          Yep!! My little pug Emily and I were outside picking grapefruits from our garden.

          • Rhetorica says:

            OMG it’s too hot here to go to the pool! I think i peaked yesrerday in my withdrawls. There going downhill now. Thanks for the encouragement. How you doin? I’ll be on tonight & hopefully talk with you then. (((nancy)))
            Spelling errors:(

    • smompy says:

      Maybe Jill wants to lend Fergie her celebrity sister, Lisa Wexler? Jill is too humble and modest to ever mention something like this in public, but, like herself, Lisa Wexler is not only a doctor, and lawyer and an Indian Chief…she’s also a financial planner. In return for helping Fergie lower her debt, perhaps Fergie can pull some stings with her ex and get Jill some sort of unofficial title, which Jill can then use to lord it over faux-countess LuAnn and feel even more superior than she already does. Maybe she could be called Jill Zarin, Lady in Waiting (for a bus).

    • AZ Girl says:

      I posted this above. I really seriously think Jill wants her as a spokesperson for the girdle line. Fergie did do a great job with Weight Watchers (or was it Jenny Craig? I can’t remember). I also think that is why JIll was tweeting Sharon Osborn to DM her. Another spokesperson. According to Jill this stuff is coming out in the fall.
      Only Jill would think it is an honor to be a spokesperson for a girdle line.

  43. moneycanbuyyouass says:

    I had to catch up on three days worth of blogs!! Too hot to do anything else. I bought a pug puppy for my son and his fiance yesterday. There is nothing cuter and funner than to play with a litter of puppies, especially snorting puppies !!! He is currently known as “Mr. Blue” as he is wearing a blue band around his neck. I immediately thought of the movie “Reservoir Dogs”! My son said this will not be his name as Mr. Blue’s role was not significant.

    Next week when I am Mass, my candle I light will be intended for all my friends here. You all mean the world to me and I so look forward to getting back here and enjoying your posts.

    This perhaps flies in the face of being a good christian but I was thinking, we could all buy some skwishwear, try it out, the return it, a la She who shall not be named. Perhaps then she would understand the consequences of returning used underwear….just a thought….I can always go to confession…..!!!!

    • moneycanbuyyouass says:

      oops, “then return it”

      • MAMAZ says:

        A Pug puppy! I’m totaly Jillous!
        Love smoosh face dogs.
        I have a Boxer and a French Bulldog. A Pug is on my list for future pet.

        • Mookies1mom says:

          Lucky duck!

        • Nancy says:

          No Pug on earth is cuter or as wonderful as my pug Emily!!!!!!
          She has been the love of my life for 17 years now.
          Your son is a lucky man. We have a “Pug Picnic” every Sunday here
          in SF. It is a funny sight to see 50+ pugs running around smashing into each other.
          Emily is a silver which are rare as most of them are fawn or black. I got her at
          a pug rescue centre. I can’t wait to hear some pug stories coming coming from your son. 🙂

          • Liz says:

            I’m so happy to find others who love pugs. I have 3 boys – Max, Misha and Sasha. I just adore them. I can just imagine going to a “Pug Picnic”. I sounds like so much fun. You are so right – nothing is more wonderful that a pug! Send my best to Emily.

            • Nancy says:

              Liz,
              You lucky lady. 3 of them!
              I have a question about that.
              Emily has been an only dog all of her life.
              When that awful day comes my husband and I are thinking
              of getting two bit i’m worried that they won’t be as close to me as Emily was.
              Believe me I know how selfish that sounds. What is your take in it?
              Are all of yours fawn? What made you pick pugs? We also have 2 cats and they are a pack of 3. Very interesting to watch. I’m not sure if the cats think they are a dog or if Emily thinks she’s a cat.

        • Sam says:

          I love smoosh-face dogs too!

          I have two Boston terriers (a black-and-white and a brindle-and-white) and am getting a third (a blue-and-white) later this week. He’ll be 8 weeks old then, and I’ve already named him Boris. He’s so cute!

    • Mookies1mom says:

      If my fur babies and hubby would allow it I would adopt a pug in a heart beat. They are so cute. Or an bulldog. But I’m not allowed! A couple down the street have two pugs that I have fallen in love with. There is also a bulldog on our street. You should see these guys at Christmas time. We have a parade and I have pictures of these dogs all dressed up.
      Don’t give in to that temptation, she probably will not allow any returns!

      • MAMAZ says:

        Great personalities too. Bulldogs are adorable. But my Frenchie is the light of my life. So funny and loving.

      • buffywood says:

        I have a way OT story for the Bulldog lovers. At my old house I had a neighbor two doors down that had an English Bulldog and his name was Beef. OMG if you ever saw this dog you would know it was the perfect name. He used to walk over to our house and come knock (scratch) at the front door to come play with my dogs. I would let him and all three would go in my backyard and play. One day he came knocking and there was a Bulldog puppy right behind him. Dan (his owner) got a 2nd one and his name was Stew. Those two were a riot!

    • smompy says:

      I am SUPER-jillous. I’ve always wanted a Pug, especially a Pug puppy. But all my animals come from the shelter, and the shelters almost never have purebred dogs or cats. I do like the way they shelters will label a dog on their websites as a “Pug mix” or “Lab mix” and then when you get there, they’re obviously like 99% Pit Bull…not that there’s anything wrong with that:)

  44. MAMAZ says:

    So Kelly thinks a burlesque party is questionable. And Avery shouldn’t have been allowed to shop with her mother for an outfit.
    This is the woman who thought posing semi nude for Playboy was teaching her daughters to have a healthy body image. Isn’t that what she said? And isn’t she the same woman who tweets about watching the Kardashians with her young daughters? The Kardashian, as in Kim Kardashian, the woman famous for her sex tape. And isn’t it common opinion that the taped wasn’t even leaked but released by Kim K and then boyfriend Ray Jay when she saw how much attention her BFF at the time Paris Hilton got for her sex tape?
    And I’m supposed to take advice from this woman?

    • RealMinkey says:

      I have 12 and 14 year old girls, and they are not allowed to watch ANY programming containing one or more Kardashians. We are a Kardashian-free household!

      • MAMAZ says:

        ITA!

        • smompy says:

          I wish I could say I’ve never watched the Kardashians, but I got curious once and checked them out. The storyline for the episode I watched was “Kim Gives her Son a Boner.” Seriously, that’s how it was listed online. The mom was supposedly going to slip her husband (Bruce Jenner?) some Viagra to improve his performance but somehow the teenage(?) son took it by accident and then had to go to the ER because his erection wouldn’t go away. Finally the mom confessed and all was well again. VERY high class show!

  45. Here is an article in Star Magazine about Jill being “connected and protected by the Mob Wives. LOL

    http://www.starmagazine.com/news/rhonyc-star-jill-zarin-connected-protected-%E2%80%94-mob-wives

    • JillhAter says:

      Surely VH1 is thrilled with Jill’s name dropping at Star. LOL

    • kats2 says:

      Is this article intended to scare us? It doesn’t Trash attracts Trash. Jill is so pathetic.

    • BessiB says:

      So. These women- who are wives and kids of jailed felons – say, “the NYC wives better watch out….or they’ll come over the bridge..” And do what, now?

      And they are offended no ones wants anything to do with them.
      O’KAY.

    • BessiB says:

      I don’t read anything about Mob Wives. Is that a show where they slap the crap our of each other and pull hair?

  46. myname2use4now says:

    FYI – Jill, this is for you because I know you’re reading this blog – ringing the bell at Nasdaq is nothing like ringing the bell at NYSE. There is no trading floor at Nasdaq, no one is watching. It’s ridiculous that you’d be so stupid crazy about it.

    I was also going to clarify that when Kelly said she was running on the West Side Highway, she probably meant that she was running along the path along side the West Side Highway. Then I thought..no, this is Kelly we’re talking about. The dolt is probably dodging traffic at this very moment. I can see the tweet now: “Running in traffic and dodging cars is so much more intense than just running. #kkbfit #icanmakeyouhot #whyareallthesecarshonkingatme?” Someone needs to get that girl some help.

    • JillhAter says:

      Why does Kelly keep her hair loose when running? Even in the sweltering heat?
      Could it because on her police report she is listed as a Male?

      just weird, it’s weird, it’s weird!!!!!!!!! 😛

      • Nancy says:

        The same reason she thinks we want to see her in a bikini.
        Because she’s BSC!!

        • JillhAter says:

          Has to be completely bat shit crazy!!!!!
          I am really interested in finding out what ‘event’ happend at scary Island that whisked her away.
          Was the ambulance called and an imminent 5150 britney hold? Then to avoid scandal off the island?
          Many other people around something got messy. I have read the network hands out ‘you didn’t see anything’ money. I read this on CDAN. Crazy days and nights blog

          • WindyCityWondering says:

            Since Kelly was “escorted” off the island and Bravo has changed production companies I wouldn’t be surprised that money changed hands to keep her behavior quiet. To look at the faces of those women (at the reunion) who were there tells it all – Kelly lost it and they feared for their own safety and they thought she should have gotten professional help.

            • JillhAter says:

              That is big, huge. OMG
              They changed production company.

              Had to be something like throwing glass,grabbing a steak knife. something nobody could dispute as threatening.

              • It may just be a rumor, but I heard she was chanting “matt, matt, matt,” (the name of a producer), at the height of her breakdown.

              • Need a Hobby says:

                No, RHONY has the same production company: Shed Media, which also produces Bethenny’s show.

                They may have changed the production crew assigned to RHONY. I think Bethenny said the old RHONY crew works on her show.

                • BessiB says:

                  That is what I recall.

                  And someone else said that a producer essentially either stayed outside of Kelly’s room all night, or Bethenny’s room – I don’t remember which – to be sure Kelly stayed away from her.

                  • JillhAter says:

                    She might have gone in to Bethenny’s room. Maybe she shared it with Alex?

                    A guard at the door. BIG-

            • JillhAter says:

              even movieline sees through Jealous Jill’s charade.

              Revealed that producers pulled the ripcord for Kelly. “I was so concerned I picked up the phone and called Jill and said, “There is a problem here. It is very serious. Kelly is going to be sent home tomorrow.

              • WindyCityWondering says:

                What turned my blood cold was when Ramona (in a blog) said she asked Kelly not to speak with Jill so many times a day during the trip because she (Kelly) always seemed “agitated” after those calls.

                • JillhAter says:

                  That is awful!!!

                • Need a Hobby says:

                  From what we saw onscreen, it appeared that JZ in their talks was validating Kels’ paranoia, so of course Kels would again call her “lifeline” JZ from the island and then be even more wound up than before.

                  I recall that afterwards when JZ was talking was it to Lulu about it, JZ was somewhat dismissive about Kelly & said she didn’t know what Kelly was talking about, Kelly wasn’t making any sense. But since it suited JZ’s agenda, she quickly later appropriated Kelly’s version of what happened on the island.

                • Christine says:

                  Ok, That seals it for me. Ramona is the sanest, dearest, most honest woman on that show. Ramona is trying to keep Kelly away from more calls to JZ, while hosting other women on a trip that was supposed to be all about ladies just getting away for some fun prior to Ramona’s marriage renewal. JZ would stoop so low as to let Kelly get worked up, probably while fueling the fire, during those phone calls. She then waits until the Kelly coast is clear and flies on down to Scary Island on a beloved P.P. She goes on to deny that Kelly had any problem.
                  These women actually have the nerve to call Ramona an alcoholic and start rumors about infidelity in her marriage. They mock her relationship with her daughter and even criticize her business sense.
                  If I didn’t hate Jill, LuAnn, Kelly and Cindy before, this sinister and diabolical tale of Scary Island has finally pushed me over the edge.
                  I watched some of Ramona on HSN and found her professional, knowledgeable and personable. She fielded HW questions with discretion and grace.
                  The brunettes are nothing but delusional, hateful and jealous bitches. Each and everyone one of them has a their own dark and disturbing pathology, and need as much psychiatric help as the Anthony family.
                  Ok, I will now retreat back to my reading. I am reading “The Help” by Kathryn Stockett and highly recommend it to my dear, sweet, funny and smart friends here at Lynn’s blog. Thank you all for listening.
                  P.S. I am reading “The Help” by Kathryn Stockett and I recommend it to all of my dear friendyous and poster

                JillhAter…. you give such great information… yum yum-

      • kats2 says:

        Kelly thinks she has great hair and a great body. She once described her body as curvy. Her hair is nice, but it looks like a wig on a tranny since she has the face and body of a man. She is not curvy, she is boxy and has man abs for sure. Any guy who thinks she’s physically attractive, must be gay.

    • vilzvet says:

      LOL! Yes you should know better, Kelly doesn’t use the running paths, she even makes her kid ride a bike in traffic.

  48. Nancy says:

    Can someone tell me why WSL can no longer post here?
    I started posting here right when all that was happening but I didn’t understand
    any of it.

    • kats2 says:

      Who said she can’t post here? She just posted something above today. I think she can do whatever she wants, perhaps she chooses not to? IDK just a guess.

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        I’d know those glasses anywhere! how are you?

        • kats2 says:

          I’m good how are you? I have been posting here off and on where have you been?

          • OneMoreInBoston says:

            workingworkingworking and then to take a break? I work some more.

            It’s a little slower right now but the crazy will start up again in a few weeks so I needed to get caught up on my IHJZ when I had a chance!

            still lurk when I can tho…

    • AZ Girl says:

      WSL is loved here and she knows it. It was her choice to take a break from the blog and not post. She is still here in spirit and keeping an eye on us all which keeps us on our toes 🙂

    • WSL posted today, but because she was “outed” on another blog, and then again last week on twitter, she is no longer anonymous like the rest of us when she posts under the name WSL. Of course, she can always choose another name 🙂

      • Nancy says:

        hwa,
        This is my confusion. Who cares if someone was “outed”? I couldn’t care
        less if someone “outed” me. I have nothing to hide. I would welcome anyone of this blog to my house. I think I may not be getting this. Help.

        • MAMAZ says:

          I think WSL was trying to remain anonymous due to her professional position. She really wasn’t spilling any dirt about the Zarins just sharing opinions like the rest of us.

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          Nancy- How ironic- she said the exact same thing when she was “outed”!

          Except it got ugly- really really ugly. And hurtful. Horrible things were said to her and about her. I won’t repeat them, because they could have damaging consequences.

          Her firm has employees. Her reputation as one of the top 50 most influential women in NYC built her company. If her reputation takes a hit from Jill Zarin then her employees livelihoods could be adversely affected.

          I think WSL could be a street fighter if she wanted to- but this is a lady who chooses to stay out of the gutter.

          • Nancy says:

            OMIB,
            I would have loved her here. What a shame.
            Jill sure is toxic to a lot of people.
            What is she gaining? That’s therapy 101.
            No one leaves a behavior without gain.
            Personally I think Jill is the most insecure person I’ve ever “known”.
            If she didn’t have Bobby in her life she wouldn’t be like this.
            Even with her friends she always ends a sentence with “Right?”
            Go back and read her blogs. She is always looking for validation.
            Sad sad sad.

            • OneMoreInBoston says:

              Nancy- something’s wrong with Jill and the something is getting worse and worse. You said a long time ago that you thought Jill would have to be institutionalized if they cancelled the show.
              At the time i thought you being dramatic- but now? ITA

              • Nancy says:

                OMIB,
                Hate to say I told you so…
                I agree she is getting worse. The Bethenny break-up
                and loosing fans put her over the edge. IMHO She has
                lost touch with reality. Bobby should step in and get her the help
                she so desperately needs. That’s his job as a husband!!!

    Princesses (LI Jewish and former Brit), Resevoir Dogs, Pug Picnics, birthday calendar keepers and pretentious broke reality stars. That’s why I heart this site. (((all of you!)))

    • Nancy says:

      Adgirl,
      One of the reasons I love it too is because Jill Zarin has resorted all of us into 5th graders. Can you imagine if someone knew nothing about this show and then read this blog what they would think? I’m talking about the posts about Jill. It is comedy at it’s best. I think the main reason Jill hates this Blog is because she see’s how much fun we are having “hating” her. If Jill isn’t happy no one can be happy!

      • Adgirl says:

        If Jill wasn’t so damn histrionic and obsessed with her own small fame we wouldn’t have such great material to work with. It’s like she came from central casting.

  50. Amy Matheson says:

    I’m 0 for 2 in originality today, so here is an OLD article (blurb really) from New York Magazine about how Kelly needed America to know her….

    http://nymag.com/daily/intel/2009/04/kelly_bensimon_needed_america.html

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      And now that America knows her they want her to leave! lol

    • MAMAZ says:

      Hi Amy.
      I mentioned on the last blog that I took your advice and made Blackberry White Chocolate pancakes for breakfast. My family thanks you. They were a big hit!

      • Amy Matheson says:

        🙂 Hi Mama Z! I did see that when I first checked in around 11 and responded but it wias in yesterday’s blog.

        I made pancakes with berries too – but mine were from the farmer’s market instead of freshly picked like yours. And you made me want to start adding white chocolate to them too!

        xo
        Amy

      • Amy Matheson says:

        Also, maybe you should send that recipe to Kelly so #shecanmakeushot

        • MAMAZ says:

          LOL. But she has a problem with pancakes, remember?

          • Amy Matheson says:

            Hee! Well, she can order just one. Maybe if she asks nicely, it can be made with jelly bean eyes and a whipped creme smile 🙂

  51. @ Nancy – do you post under both a purple and yellow quilt, or are there two Nancy’s.

    • MAMAZ says:

      I don’t know about Nancy but I have a brown quilt on my desktop and a purple on my laptop. A few blogs ago someone using the name Mamaz posted using an orange quilt. It sort of freaked me out.

      • I thought the quilts went with the email. That would freak me out if someone started using my blog name. Especially right now when we’re on the lookout for troublemakers.

        I only asked about Nancy, because Neroes mentioned she was also posting under Nancy at first, but there were 2 others, so she switched. Then I started to pay attention, but I have a short attention span – so I thought I’d just ask.

  52. MAMAZ says:

    Several years ago HBO ran a documentery called Pretty Things about burlesque. It was really good. Liz Goldwyn, grandaughter of the late Sam Goldwyn interviewed former burlesque stars about thier lives and art. Thye taught her to perform burlesque.
    Am I the only one who watched?

  53. Adgirl says:

    Could someone please make “Jill Zarin, the Musical”. I think we have enough material.

    • Nancy says:

      Who gets to play Jill? And LuMan? And Kelly? And Cindy?

      • Amy Matheson says:

        All the ones who lose at picking straws?

        • Nancy says:

          I disagree. Playing Kelly would be soo much fun.
          We could get Ramona to play Jill. Bethenny to be Kelly
          and then we can go to the homeless shelter and see who smells bad
          enough to play Cindy.

          • Amy Matheson says:

            Well… there IS all the vodka and Kelly-ade you’d get to drink. And it would be fun to have sparkles and butterflies inside one’s skull instead a plain, boring old brain. Brains are so 1979.

            • JillhAter says:

              at the beginning of season 3 episode 13 the ladies are speaking about Kelly’s implosion the night before.
              Bethenny say’s, It’s anxiety producing.. I am in my bed, I’m pregnant and then.. Alex responds, I trying to figure out how to process it. Then later Alex shakes when she see’s Jealous Jill and starts shaking. All the Alex coddling through out the episode

              Maybe KB went in to Alex’s bedroom and started screaming,blocked her in…

              My Post is so 1979!!!

          • Amy Matheson says:

            And sorry, I am sure there is no homeless person in the world who smells bad enough to play Cindy. Awww… we’ll have to cut her part out of the musical. Too sad.

    • JillhAter says:

      .
      Nobody would play Jealous Jill.
      BOZO the Clown already refused to do a parody. 😛

    • RealMinkey says:

      That would be so fun and campy! Jimmy Fallon does a fantastic Jill character already. Maybe he could star in it?

      • MAMAZ says:

        Adgirl – LOL, Thats a great idea. You should write one. Sort of like the Harry Potter musical thing on youtube. I can’t remember the name but my kids love it, very campy.

        • Adgirl says:

          I suggested casting down the thread.

          I like RuPaul for Lulu … he can wear her headress. Gary Busey for Kelly … obviously. You guys suggest some catsing!

  54. OneMoreInBoston says:

    Whatever happened to Jill’s Kodak deal?
    the one she claimed that Ramona blew for her? and that it was $3M? And the it came out a few weeks ago that was b.s. (big surprise) that there never was a deal?

    What exactly has Jill endorsed besides her own products, and Zarin Fabrics?

    How can she claim that this blog lost her endorsements? After all, you can’t lose what you never had.

    • This is what I think.
      1) Jill considers an endorsement deal the same as product placement – if I film in your restaurant or at your fashion show – give me something free – however since she doesn’t control what makes it on the screen, not too many companies go for that. A big company like Kodak would rather product place on the Apprentice where Donald can assure them their company will be treated well.
      2) Jill was a complete failure at the design business – making Bobbee give over a large portion of his store to it – promoting it on the show, then Brad dumped her, no one hired her, and they had to close down that part of the business and try to rent out the space (still vacant I think)
      3) Jill will waste more money on her girdles – that will end up being stacked in boxes in that empty part of Zarin Fabrics next to her books and the bedding line.

      However she’s delusional, so she’ll blame her failures on Brad (oops already forgiven him), Ramona, and now this Blog.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Sometimes I think Jillzy thinks if she wants to do something (like endorse a product) that she should be allowed to do so…. sort of like when she sees celebs in restaurants that they really want to come over and talk to her but are a little bit starstruck or shy. She really believes she is a very famous person and who in their right mind wouldn’t want her to endorse their stuff or hang out with her.

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

        I see.

        Like how this blog is named “I love Jill Zarin” but we’re just too starstruck and shy to say it ?

      • Nancy says:

        What do you think she will be wasting Bobby’s money with next?
        We should have a contest. Who ever wins gets…
        1-Her “book”
        2-Her “sheets”
        3-Her girdle
        4-Her “news letter”
        4-A signed picture of her & Bobby
        5-One of Bobby’s ties
        6-A tour of Zarin Fabrics (basement included)
        7-One of Bobby’s used Playboy magazines.
        8-Lunch with “Mothers not happy” Gloria.
        9-Radio interview with Lisa
        10-Dog sitting Ginger for a week.

        Now who wants to play?

    Sam. What kind of puppy are you getting?

    • Sam says:

      An 8-week-old blue-and-white Boston terrier I’ve already named Boris. I picked him out of a litter of seven because he’s really calm, and I have another Boston (plus one more) that’s elderly and wouldn’t appreciate a “live wire.”

      • VAgirl says:

        They are cute dogs. I’ll bet you can’t wait. Thank heavens they make rawhide chews because my two dogs (heinz 57s) have been particular rambunctious today and right now they are happily chewing away and have been for quite awhile. It’s like having toddlers.

        • Sam says:

          I’m glad to hear that your dogs are calmly chewing their rawhide chews now. You’re so right about them being like toddlers! I was just reading a dog-training book (because it’s been a few years since I had a little puppy), and it’s reminded me of just how much work I’m in for! (The book says an eight-week-old puppy can need to go potty as many as 20 times every 24 hours!) But you’re right; I still can’t wait to become that bitty baby Boston’s mommy.

          • MAMAZ says:

            Sam. – Bostons are another one of the breeds I’d like to have some day. Boris is a great name.

              I’m so glad you love Bostons — and the name Boris!

    • Nancy says:

      TLM,
      I noticed her earrings but didn’t make that connection.
      You are right that is hilarious! I hope Ramona reads this
      as she will laugh as well. (unlike Shrill, Ramona has a sense of humor.)

      • Waslurking says:

        69 is the sign for Cancer astrologically, so I’m assuming that is her birth sign.

        I think Ramona responded somewhere that the earrings design was supposed to be some sort of yin-yang like design. She might want to rethink that design, lol.

    The Countess’ daughter is as graceful as a truck driver, and her voice sounds like a boy’s. I wonder if she’s already a smoker like her mom. Jellybean Head thinks Victoria will be working for French Vogue or be a Marc Jacobs muse. I thought that was hilarious. Kookadoodle-do lives!

    • Nancy says:

      I think Victoria i beautiful but I wouldn’t encourage going into
      modeling if I was her mother. I wonder why her father hasn’t
      stepped in? Do they even see each other now? LuAnn is
      so selfish. She should have had a relationship with her children when her marriage ended but noooooo. She found her “boy toy” and off she went again.

      • Amy Matheson says:

        “I wonder why her father hasn’t stepped in? Do they even see each other now?”

        I am guessing that if she’s using the N word freely and her dad is with a woman of Ethopian heritage, that it’s probably not the warmest relationship.

        And despite what a jackass LuAnn is, she is still her mom, that would be hard for a child to watch her family fall apart. No wonder she tries to sneak out and forget about the hell her parents have made for her.

      How much do you want to bet that the “show” Jill was involved with was one of these frauds. I am so glad I skated in Europe. This makes me sick to know this.
      Strange world we live in a times.

      • Adgirl says:

        I can’t blame the performers, it was the management. They abused the kids by forcing the families to sell tickets so their kids could skate. It was a huge waste of time & talent!

    I love this blog because it is chock full of funny, empathetic, enthusiastic, hilarious and brilliant posters who never fail to simultaneously brighten my day and reassure me that I am not alone in hating JIll Zarin. There are a lot of funny blogs out there, but the community of posters here is like no other.

      Good idea. I’m not sure I want to watch round 3 of the Gorga fight.

    • zanne says:

      It’s on now – very interesting. I want to get her book. I don’t know at age 11 I had the staying power to do what she did. She thought that sex was barbie and ken laying side by side was all there was to it. I had my son bring be a box of tissues as I know I will be needing them.

  71. Hey Q
    If you’re reading tonight – I hope your grandbaby has arrived safely. And I miss you.

    Just read in the Daily Mail on line, I think its a British tabloid that Jill is in London hanging out with Robbie Williams and his wife. It says Jill and Bobby are looking at houses in London in the $10 million dollar range, that London is one of their favorite cities and Jill would love to star in a spin off…The Real Housewives of London. Oh really should we do that to the British people? Who knows how much of that is true and how much Jills publicist made up.

    • Not that Crazy says:

      The English have such a lovely tonal quality to their speech. It flows and sways and some could tell you to F*** off and you would say OK, Thank You. Now imagine that with Jill’s horrible New York accent!!!!! OH DEAR GOD!

    • MAMAZ says:

      Can anyone see her hanging out with Robbie Williams? That’s bizarre. She complains about Ramona’s drinking. Isn’t he a wild ass?
      Also I think he’s a giant douche. I remember years ago when he got that Maori tattoo and the Maoris were pissed.

    • lillybee says:

      I would think most of it.

    • Nancy says:

      Ya right, and I’m the Queen of England.

    • I think that’s what is called a fresh start. Maybe she could begin with British Big Brother – then Britain’s Got Talent.

      • Nancy says:

        Don’t give her any ideas.
        What would her talent be? Wearing girdles? I can’t wait.

    • BessiB says:

      Oh, bullshit.

    • AZ Girl says:

      OMG! are you kidding me??? Jill and Bawby getting a place in London? Can you imagine? Thinking that British society is going to listen to that LI accent? I don’t think so. Jill you are NOT Madonna, Gwyneth, or Angelina.

    • kbinldo says:

      What? Did they cancel Eastenders??? 😦 (Wish BBC America would bring that back)

  73. Pghemtchick says:

    Between Mob Wives reunion and BB, BB it is! I really really dislike Brachel. I thought they broke up since he cheated on her and apologized on YouTube. That voice! That laugh! Ugh. Jeff and Jordan are adorable as usual, and I still love Evil Dick. None of the bewbies minus Adam have grown on me yet.

    • Pghemtchick says:

      Omg newbies! Autocorrect! I guess I type bewbies a lot. Lol

    • It’s an interesting mix. I’m not sure if there’s been a couple that’s more adorable as Jordan and Jeff, or as annoying as Brenchel, yet somehow they are in an early alliance. I hope the newbies join forces with Jeff and Jordan, and one of Brenchel is gone by next week – preferably Rachel, although Brendan is seriously annoying.

      • Pghemtchick says:

        Mom always said every garbage can has a lid. Brendon and Rachel are meant to be since I wouldn’t wish either on a sane individual. Lol omg Jordan channeled Kelly! Whoa to what I just saw with the cows. . . Lol

    • boston02127 says:

      I’m going back & forth between MW & BB. Rachael drives me nuts with that laugh after EVERYTHING she says.

  74. misosweets says:

    This was probably already posted here, but I thought it was worth repeating….

    In responding to a comment on his blog, Simon identified five aliases that were using the same IP address to leave negative comments on his blog.

    Obviously this is not news to anyone since it’s well documented that Jill hires people to post positive comments about her online (and does so herself).

    But what cracks me up is that she and/or her assistants are not STILL smart enough to know they can all be identified and linked. You’d think after all the bad press with Amazongate, etc. they would invest in some better technique.

    • I hadn’t heard that – did he post it on his blog?

      One night when the trolls were out on this blog, we had one pretend to be another person, but forget to change their name – then they made up a story about emailing the posting to the other person – anyway – it was LOL funny if they thought what they were doing was in any way believable. Deep sigh.

      • misosweets says:

        Yes, he posted it inside of a comment. I’m not sure how to link to that specific comment, but this is the page:

        http://mccordvankempen.com/wordpress/?p=433&cpage=1#comments

        Then if you scroll to a comment that was initially posted by “carrie”, you’ll see a reply comment from “InTheZone”…that is where Simon has added an edit (his edit is in bold type) which explains that “InTheZone” is one of five aliases being used.

      • kbinldo says:

        I love watching sock puppets do that to themselves.

    • Adgirl says:

      Wow. It doesn’t take a genius to change IP addresses either. I’m not going to say how but there are plenty of tricks to get around it. I hope Simon outed the connected posts so we can share in the stupidity.

      • misosweets says:

        Here’s what Simon said in the comment:

        “Edited by Simon – this is the 5th alias using four different email addresses but all via the same IP address that has been used to post 15 negative comments on this blog. It seems that someone has taken an almost professional interest in my blog”

        GO SIMON!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Did Simon ID the five names using the same IP? Wonder if they have been used here too.

      • misosweets says:

        It’d be interesting to investigate whether those email addresses and IPs would match up with any that have been used here, but it’s unlikely that Simon would ever go so far as to compare notes with Lynn. He’s not vindictive that way. But I wish he WAS. 🙂

        As for the five names, the way I’m interpreting it is that “InTheZone” and possibly “carrie” are two of the names. But he says 15 negative comments were involved…and I don’t think I’ve seen more than 15 negative comments there TOTAL. So one might conclude that almost every negative comment on his blog came from the same IP address.

  75. Amy Matheson says:

    Jill wants to be in Real Housewives of London. Yayyyyy!!! She’s your problem now, England!

    Who will be in this fabulous circle of friends she might have if this comes to fruition? Lesseeeee… the Queen – nah, not glamorous enough. Maybe Kate. Fergie. Oh, the fabulous Mrs. Robbie Williams. Ummmm… does Madonna still live there? Maybe

    Maybe Jill can acquire a fake British accent – “Ay Bohhhhhbay, I say, this Aston Mah-in doesn’t ‘ave a cup ‘older for me tea” Haha.. her accent would have to be cockney of course.

    What a freaking joke you are, Jill Zarin! Cheers!

    • Amber...Real Wife says:

      PUL-EEZE LOUISE!!!

      Jill’s in London pulling a “Salahi”. She’s shopping for a home in the 100k to 10M dollar range. How if they’re renting in the Hamptons, are they looking for a mansion in London that would have to be paid for, maintained, staffed, protected year round on a schmatta’s peddlers salary? Sure he’s got RE but come on, in England? Sounds like a Michaele and Tarek trick to me.

      • BambiBaby22 says:

        Time and again, London has been ranked as the most expensive city to live in the world, so it is hard for me to believe that she and bobby could afford a mansion there.

    • Amy Matheson says:

      Ahhhh… dang. I posted this twice. Not on purpose. Sowwwwy.

    OMIB found a Bethenny interview in the Improper Bostonian, but had trouble posting the link. Here it is:
    http://www.improper.com/features/being-bethenny/P2/
    Excerpts:
    >>So what part of having a camera trained on you 24/7 seemed like a good idea to you?
    It’s not 24/7, and there’s no part of it that isn’t annoying. The only part that isn’t annoying is when we go to restaurants I haven’t been to before, or to a premiere.

    Isn’t this whole thing astonishingly narcissistic?
    Maybe it’s narcissistic. I have no idea. But it’s not like I gave myself my own show. Bravo gave it to me. So maybe it’s just delusional.

    In reality, do you think of yourself as a star?
    No. I think of myself as a smart business-person.<<

    How refreshingly different from our lovely never-satisfied-expert-on-all-things Hausfrau Jilly.

  77. MAMAZ says:

    I’m going to get my papers for work tomorrow, mix a drink, watch True Blood and then back to chat for NJ. 🙂

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      After reading that RHNJ is going to treat viewers to so Teresa/Joe romance, I am going with True Blood as well! Eric is so yummy…..

      As if Bravo would put that nutbag in another franchise after ruining NY!

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      so THAT’S why she wanted Fergie to call her…what- she’s burned through all of her NYC connections?

      Wait just a cotton picking minute-Lynn? Jill’s going to ENGLAND? aren’t your roots there?
      crap- hide everything down the priest hole! (or was that the Irish?)

      • LynnNChicago says:

        LOL Yes, Jill is IN England as we speak… yet she continues to Tweet all day and night. I think my relatives are all safe, she doesn’t look up from her Blackberry long enough to look around.

        • boston02127 says:

          I find that unreal. She’s on vacation and tweets. Is she holed up in a room?
          If I went anywhere on vacation, I’d be keeping so busy seeing all new things. Jill is such a loser.

    • BambiBaby22 says:

      About her coming back with an accent, we will hear her talk about her “flat” and having to take the “lift” and her new “trousers”…..she will think she has class….lol.

      • buffywood says:

        Live baby bunnies are horrible! When I was younger my Russian Blue use to bring in all kinds of animals both live and dead. The cold dead mouse against my cheek on my pillow was one of the worst experiences ever. Hell it was around 25 years ago and I still remember it like it was yesterday.

        • Nancy says:

          We had a Russian Blue when I was a child. He was
          beautiful. Memories.

          • Pghemtchick says:

            My sister-in-law inherited her Russian Blue. Gunther was being cat sat while her owner (I dislike the term, but he wasn’t family to her) was in jail. I’m guessing he never got out as Gunther has been in our family since 2004. Lol She’s a rabbit hunter which makes me sad. We had her up here for a week and she gave my bunny a sprained neck, literally. Was scary as Peanut ended up having a seizure from not being able to eat right. Since then Gunther has been on a wild bunny killing mission. She’s found a few adults. It’s sad. She definitely dominates that house. There’s another cat, a blue-tick beagle, a black lab, and their child the labbe? Legal? Labby? Lol

        made George deal with it.

      Hey *pokes* you!

      No self-deprication! From what I read on here you are on the go and working tons, so relaxing on the couch and vegging out doesn’t make you a loser. So snuggle up and settle in for the train wreck of NJ about to happen lol

  82. Amber...Real Wife says:

    I feel sorry for the British realtor who is showing TheZarins property. What a waste of time, be it a London flat or worse yet a secluded country manor. I hope they got requested a pre-approval letter or a copy of their financials, because this sounds like another farfetched JillKilla publicity ploy to me. They’re out there pulling a Salahi, and lord knows realtors don’t play that!

    • boston02127 says:

      What happen to the place Jill was going to buy near Ally’s school? She’s so full of b/s.

    • Nancy says:

      Amber,
      Jill and Bobby are NOT looking at flats in London.
      She has become so desperate. She needs to see
      a therapist. Soon!

      Yuck

    • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

      Now that is hysterical. I just saw that and popped on here to see if I was the only one concerned with that lead in. I mean after last week, what else can she possibly have to show us. I am seriously uneasy about this episode.

      • smompy says:

        Oh, as bad as it was in the last episode, I can actually imagine it getting much worse.

        “Joe, tell everybody, aint I the best at double penetration, Joe? Joe, AINT I???

        I’ll try to keep it together, but I swear if Tree mentions anything along the lines of a Dirty Sanchez, I seriously think I’ll hurl. Someone really needs to add saltpeter to the list of Teresa’s commonly used ingreediances.

  84. maggie_01bklyn says:

    Ok, now i am totally PISSED….. I tried to view the video with Kelly talking about love and relationships and it has been PULLED….. Someone should pull Kelly’s BOOK….. She should be writing comic books about her fantasy life with LuMan

    • Duchess of Dryer Lint says:

      Maggie,
      allow me to repost from a response to Mookiesmom earlier.
      You forgot the basic rules of reading or attempting to read ANYTHING posted by Kelly. Let’s review.
      1. Pull bottle of the stiffest, strongest booze you have in the house and pour a slug–you will need it to steady your nerves.
      2. Next review deep calming breath exercises from your yoga program of choice. Bethanny has a good one, or you can view some quick videos on You Tube.
      3. Be sure you have hidden any sharp object that could be used when you become so frustrated you decide to either slit your own wrists, gouge out your eyes or simply stab the computer screen. All of these are bad options and if you can’t find the sharp objects you will be much safer.
      4. Finally, grab your first aid kit, smelling salts and a bag of frozen peas from the kitchen to ensure you are prepared for the eventual and inevitable head banging on the desk which will occur at some point. After banging use the smelling salts to avoid passing out, the first aid kit to bandage any damage done by the wood to flesh contact and the bag of peas to controll swelling bumps. Feel free to repeat step 1 here if necessary.

    Is anyone watching “Celebrity Rehab”?

    What’s the “poo poo” at the end. She’s happy with Ginger’s poo poo?

    • BambiBaby22 says:

      She really must have been miserable if THIS is her being the “happiest” she has ever been. So I guess she LIKES fighting with everyone on twitter.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      that IS a weird tweet..

      Maybe she meant “pooh pooh” like pooh on you?

      Maybe we should say that at the end of each post.

      I Hate Jill Zarin (poo poo)

    • Nancy says:

      Great Jill,
      Now make us happy and go away.

    • Indy 501 says:

      Ok. Poo Poo is an eastern european (jewish) expression of superstition. When you say something that reflects on your good fortune you say poo poo or “ken ahora” which means keep the evil spirits away or don’t jinx me. Truly grateful people might just say “thank god”. But Jill and her family only bring shame
      to our people. I dont think i need to elaborate. She doesnt in any way respect the basic tenets of our faith, the Big Ten. Letz just count how many she has broken on national tv.
      If she reads this and gets her hit squad on me (oops, there goes another commandment) tell my boys B&B i loved them and if some of you midwesterners could show up at the funeral that would be nice :). Dont send flowers, we’re Jewish, so food is always welcome. The rest of you just have a martini in my memory.

      • OneMoreInBoston says:

  89. Az says:

    There is a show on IFC called Love/Lust. One of the subjects it tackled was the bikini. I guess the Bensimon wrote a book about the bikini? Anyway, she was on the show. She looked great, she sounded great: very informed, logical, reasonable and pleasant. I had to do a double take to make sure it was our koo-koo Kelly Bensimon. So I tweeted something to the effect that I’d seen her on this show and been very surprised by how articulate and well-informed she was. She tweeted back: Shhh don’t tell people I’m smart. Since then, I formed two theories: A. She really is nuts and goes on and off her meds (or her meds need adjusting every so often) or B. She is crazy like a fox (like Gary Busey minus the head injury) and realized after Scary Island that being batshit insane is her “schtick” & what will get her attention and ratings which translates into more cash… therefore, the times when she sounds reasonable and logical is when she forgets her act, drops the crazy and we see the real Kelly Bensimon: smart, logical, articulate. I’m still on the fence about this one but somehow, someday I will figure this out. In the meantime, I’d appreciate some help. Opinions, anyone?
