I Hate Jill Zarin The Real Housewives of New York
Before we get into the show I have to say it again, I’m never giving up, I’d Love love love to see Cat Ommanney on this show! She would be perfect for The Real Housewives of New York! Cat would stand up to the Brunette’s alongside Sonja, Alex and Ramona! Cat would be the perfect addition to the Blonde Team! What do you say Bravo? Andy?? Anyone???
Quincy and I both wrote our reasons why we’d like to see Cat on The Real Housewives of New York and I think they’re all pretty good ones….
I Hate Jill Zarin We Want Cat Ommanney on Real Housewives of New York: http://t.co/pdVqeB4
On to the show!!!
I have to admit that Jill isn’t as vile and vicious as she was last season, but has she changed? Hell no! Jill picked on every member of the cast at one time or another, this season she was pretty cruel to Ramona but she’s backed off of Alex as she really had to in order to make herself look better. Jill didn’t change but she did learn a thing or two, she learned that she was losing fans by attacking Alex all the time.
Jill apparently thought it would be safe to attack Ramona but The Pinot Queen has fans of her own, plus she can hold her own and doesn’t get tongue-tied and turn red when Jill attacks. Ramona attacks back as we learned tonight with Lulu. Wasn’t that great? We will get into that in a minute!
Ok well Jill isn’t blatantly attacking anyone in the most recent episodes but she is still annoying enough to want to take an ice pick to your ears and a dull spoon to your eyeballs. She still has to throw in the snide comments in her talking head interviews, you know the ones where she says it is her job to snark at her cast mates, it is expected of her, right? More prevalent on this episode is this ridiculous notion that Jill knows everything and is going to prove it just grates on your last nerve, right?
After pretending to know all about dentistry, medicine, the law and fashion, tonight she wanted to prove that she knows how to direct a music video. You know that horrible spoken word atrocity that Lulu put out needs a video to go along with it so Jill is going to direct it. Jill’s going to tell them which way to drive the limo, who to put in the video and even how to style Lulu’s hair. I thought it was hysterical that they couldn’t find enough people to stand around a craps table so they had to grab assistants, Jill’s kid and even the producer himself. Jill tells us that her feet hurt and she’s exhausted.
So the debate of the night is whether or not the blondes should have sucked it up and went to Atlantic City to be in LuAnn’s video. I say no way, they didn’t want to and shouldn’t do anything they don’t want to do. Luann refused to attend Alex’s Brooklyn Fashion Weekend with Jill even telling us “the Countess wouldn’t be caught dead here” while pointing out the trash in front of the place. (I’ve got news for you Zarin, I’ve seen NYC and there is trash in the streets everywhere, even in your neighborhood!)
I thought that the discussion that Alex and Simon had in their backyard while toasting marshmallows was a good one and Alex made some outstanding points. Alex reminded everyone that Lulu’s music has messages, those messages are extremely contradictory when compared to Luann’s behavior. Most people agree that all of Luann’s “class” talk is completely classless! (Thank you Anderson Cooper!) Alex explained that while Luann’s message would have or could have been a fine one, coming from the Hypocrisy Queen it was ridiculous and who would want to be a part of that?
Anderson Cooper’s 2 cents: http://terryaley.com/?p=4365
Add to Alex’s outstanding points, Ramona’s conversation with Sonja about her reasons for not wanting to be in the video were also valid. Let’s face it, Ramona’s not perfect and she’s probably done a whole slew of things that embarrass her daughter (haven’t we all!) but if Avery really was against Ramona doing it then I see no reason not to honor that simple request. You can’t let your kids dictate what you can and cannot do but this wasn’t an earth shattering event that Ramona was missing, it was a stupid music video!
Sonja explained that she didn’t want to appear in the video, Jill trying to bully and guilt Sonja into going to Atlantic City for the day was another good example of Jill’s horrible behavior. Who is Jill Zarin to tell Sonja how to be a good friend to anyone? Jill told Sonja that even if she didn’t want to be in the video, she should still attend the taping. WHY? Sonja explained that she welcomes her daughter home from school at 3pm every day so back the hell off Zarin! Way to stand your ground Sonja!
My favorite scene tonight is Lulu having lunch with Ramona as Ramona tells Luann she won’t be in her stupid music video. The whole thing starts off as Luann and her typical moaning says, “I had to come all the way across town to meet you today”. Oh well, now you know how Bethenny felt in The Hamptons last season when you dragged her to your side of town.
It got way better from there! Luann tried to slam Ramona but Ramona turned it around and made it a slam at Luann, it was sheer genius! Ramona told Lulu that she spends a lot of time with her daughter, Luann tried to dig saying, “It’s amazing that she’s turned out as well as she has” implying that time with Ramona could harm the child but Ramona told Luann that when you spend a lot of time with your child they turn out to be good kids, which implied that not only did Lulu not spend time with her kids but they didn’t turn out so well. It was a thing of beauty! And it got better! If you haven’t seen the scene, I highly recommend watching it, it was amazeballs! GO RAMONA!
This video is just a portion of the entire scene but it’ll give you an idea…
Sorry Lulu, Ramona isn’t Alex and you can’t push her around, she got the better of you and it was a sight to see! Ramona was even able to get a comment in about Luann’s ex-husband cheating on her causing Luann to get up and walk out of the restaurant, this is becoming Luann’s trademark move…and the crowd goes wild!!!
Luann’s talking head interview telling viewers that her good friend Princess Laura (or Lara) give her good advice, “just go for it” was so pretentious and obnoxious that it was a miracle my television set survived (good thing I had nothing nearby to throw at her face). Whoever this Princess Laura is, I hope she got her royalties from Nike.
Jill submitted herself to some tests from some doctor, they were free…enough said.
Thank you Bravo for putting the final nail in Cindy’s coffin, her behavior at Sonja’s breakfast was unforgivable! Why would you agree to attend breakfast then bring your assistant along and get on a conference call in the woman’s kitchen while waiting for breakfast to be prepared? Just say No Cindy! She needed to either reschedule the conference call or reschedule breakfast at Sonja’s but you can’t do both! Who raised this bitch? Oh yeah, the couple who sat there at lunch watching their daughter struggle to handle one of her twins at the table in the restaurant. Rather than helping the stupid ass to care for her child, or show her how to amuse the little girl while waiting for lunch to arrive, they sat there dumbfounded as Cindy calls in a nanny to retrieve her child. Apparently this is how Cindy was raised. Cindy’s behavior gets worse, Cindy asked Sonja to keep it down because she was cooking too loudly in her own kitchen, preparing breakfast for the rude and dumb as a box of rocks Cindy Barshop. Toodles Cin, your days are numbered on this show!
Alex and Simon hosted an art party in their Brooklyn home and some very strange art was hung on the walls. (sorry but the big brown lump on the wall was weird but some of it was cool) The best part was Sonja telling Alex and Ramona about Cindy’s horrible behavior at breakfast. It was Mario’s turn to put his foot in his mouth while his wife’s foot remained firmly planted on the floor. That’s ok, we can forgive Mario for complaining about Brooklyn because he’s an all around good guy but enough with the Brooklyn nonsense! Now that I’ve been there I can say it’s a beautiful area with amazing homes and huge lush parks, it reminds me of Chicago’s Gold Coast. (without the lakefront)
Somehow Luann forgave and gave a pass to Cindy for not attending the shooting of the music video but the blondes excuses were not acceptable. Cindy had to be with her kids? The woman who doesn’t watch her kids, who lays (or lies?) in bed listening to the nanny get up with her kids, the woman who hands her kid off to the nanny because she can’t handle her at lunch, the woman who has more nanny’s than Keebler has cookies. Cindy had to be with her kids. (stop laughing)
The best part of the show was that Kelly was barely seen, she showed up for 15-minutes to do a few cartwheels in Lulu’s video then she was tail lights… Of course Jill Zarin never left Luann’s side, she wanted her mug in every shot and she got her wish!
While the video was being shot in Atlantic City, the blondes took a hip hop dance class and as you can imagine it was a bit hysterical but they had fun and Ramona’s daughter is gorgeous, funny and bright. It’s always a good scene when Avery is part of the fun! Avery is not faking it, she tells it like it is, similar to her mom we see and hear the real Avery, not the fake one who is perfectly behaved on-screen yet acts like a holy terror off-screen. (Yes Lulu, I’m talking about your kid)
Shooting the music video was a little dull, I imagine it is like being there for real. Jill nonstop complained about everything, tried to give her two cents about how things should be shot and all around annoyed the entire production team. I can’t imagine why the blonde’s didn’t want to be there? Maybe the real reason is they Hate Jill Zarin? haha There isn’t a lot of love to be had for the star of the video either, Luann’s meeting with Ramona certainly wasn’t going to convince Ramona to do the shoot. If Luann wants something maybe being nice to people could go a long way to that end, huh Lulu?
The brunette’s are blaming Ramona for Sonja’s failure to appear in the video, that is really unfair. I don’t think Sonja does anything she doesn’t want to do and I certainly don’t think that if Sonja wanted to appear in the ridiculous video anything would have stopped her. Sonja is perfectly capable of making her own decisions.
The end result of Luann’s video was hysterical, the only problem is that it wasn’t meant to be funny. Jill’s behavior on screen in this video is typical of who she is, overacting and making a fool of herself. Kelly also looks ridiculous, does this woman EVER brush her hair? Luann was overly made up with pancake makeup and her hair was something out of the 1960’s, and not on purpose! It’s a good laugh in any case and you can view it here:
But this one is better:
Big Brother 13 Episode 4
Eviction Show Recap by Shannon
Tonight’s episode picked up after the POV ceremony. Rachel and Brendon left the nominations the same so either Keith or Porsche will be going home. We see more interviews explaining how they both think they have the numbers. Porsche completely brushes Keith off when he tries to talk to her, because she feels like she could never trust him and she is just ready for her golden key. Keith acts like he really would like to be friends but it’s a case of too little too late.
We see Cassi talking to the rest of the newbies and deciding that Porsche needs to go. She doesn’t trust her and honestly didn’t even try to like her, because she was so sure she was leaving.
The veterans know they have to flip some votes, so they decide that they need to socialize more. They hang out with the newbies and play games. The only one who didn’t fall for their attempt is Dominic. Jeff thinks they can get Adam since Evil Dick already had a deal with him, but they aren’t sure so they also try to bring in Shelly and Kalia.
Brendon once again gets upset over something Rachel did, and we get to see the two love birds fighting. Well, not so much fighting as pouting. Rachel told some of the houseguests her pet name for him, which is Bookie, and when they teasingly call him that as he is playing a game of Corn-hole Toss, he thinks it’s out of line, and decides it’s time for Rachel to call it a night. He leads her up to the HOH room and scolds her about how she is demasculinizing him. He tells her how he wants to get a job as a medical professional one day and doesn’t want anything they do to come back to haunt him. My problem with this is that he has a problem with her telling their nicknames for each other, but doesn’t think it’s a ever going to come up, or be a problem, that they are having sex, on camera, with live feeds rolling.
We get a message from Evil Dick explaining how he loves the game of Big Brother and had to leave for a personal issue, but that he was OK, as well as his family and girlfriend. He apologizes to Dani and tells everyone how he is going to watch every episode. It really upsets Dani when Julie Chen asks her what she thinks, and she states, this part’s not ‘Big Brother,’ this part’s real life. Julie goes on to ask, No, I love you? Dani just replies how awkward it was.
Before the voting Julie gives both Keith and Porsche a final plea for the houseguests votes. Keith thanked Porsche and said she rocked, and he thanked his fellow houseguests and told them to have fun and remember that it’s only a game. Porsche thanks everyone for playing the game with her.
Keith is voted out by 6 to 4. Before Dani placed her vote, she tells Julie that she does love her father. I’m not sure if she had to think about it or if she just didn’t like being put on the spot. Either way, she did want it known that she did love him.
As all the awkward goodbye hugs are taking place you can see the newbies shooting glances at each other. Already trying to figure out who the two people are that switched sides.
During his interview with Julie Chen, she calls him out on his cockiness. Keith admits that he was, and that he is shocked to have been voted out. She suggest that throwing the POV wasn’t the smartest move. Which he agrees.
The goodbye messages are the normal stuff. Everyone telling him how he played the game wrong. Cassi says how Keith came in to play The Dating Game instead of Big Brother. Lawon tells him he acted a fool. Rachel tells him the he fell victim to Hurricane Brenchel and Porsche points at her shirt which says, You Can Look But You Can’t Touch shirt. Keith did seem to be a good sport about it and kept laughing through it all.
The Head Of Household competition is the Big Brother Open. It’s a miniature golf game with the contestants trying to get a hole-in-one. The player closest to the number one slot will be HOH. The out going HOH got to pick the order of the players. Rachel picked Dominic to go first and he gets his ball in the 6 slot, Adam was next and he hit his ball into the number 8 slot. The next three players were Cassi, Shelly & Lawon and they all three overshot the numbers and went into the water and were eliminated. Kalia was next and hit the ball in the 6 slot so she tied with Dominic. Jordan was up next and hit her ball in the number 3 spot. Jeff and Brendon were next but both didn’t even try since they knew Jordan was going to be the winner.
The newbies have completely lost trust in one another. They don’t know for sure who the two people were who voted with the veterans so they are all jumping to different conclusions. None of them thinks it could be Shelly, which we all know it was. She is doing a good job in fooling the newbies into thinking she is with them. Lawon thinks it’s Cassi and Dominic that have flipped, while Dominic thinks its Kalia and Adam. So now he has lost trust in his own partner. The veterans are playing them all like a fiddle.
***** End of Spoilers*****
Thanks Shannon, great job! I’m really disappointed we lost Evel Dick, he makes the game so much more interesting….it’s going to be a fun season!
As I mentioned yesterday the Zarin Camp, specifically her cyber-assistant Maggie Reynolds continues to harass me by reporting my blog daily to WordPress, they don’t like it when I use photo’s that Jill has tweeted or posted on her Facebook wall, they have a problem with me repeating Jill’s tweets and passages from her blog. It’s not a problem because as a very good friend pointed out, the photos that Jill posts (that I sometimes was posting here for you all to see) typically portray her in a good light or she wouldn’t have posted them in the first place, right? Not a problem, I’ll simply use the photos of her that show her ugly side, there are plenty of those that are perfectly acceptable to WordPress. She hasn’t posted her blog this week and didn’t bother last week since she was in England, did you know she was in England? Yes, she was in England! She did however manage to post two other blogs, one on her web site and another private blog she mailed only to those who signed up for the Jill Zarin Fan Club err.. signed up to get her blog emailed directly to them.
Jill doesn’t like it when I quote her Tweets here on the blog either, other blogs can do it and she takes no action but that’s ok too because she’s clearly embarrassed by what she has tweeted or she wouldn’t care, right? Let’s face it, this woman isn’t saving the world. Besides you can all view her entire Tweet stream right here:
It’s just as embarrassing to Jill this way or if I post it for you….try not to laugh too hard as she begs celebrities to please just talk to her, follow her on Twitter or put her on their show. Don’t judge her too harshly as she constantly pushes her new undie line at everyone. Be kind as she tells you that she just got a HUGE check from Ebay for all her used crap that poor suckers bought up, and how she brags about being in England and all the fun things she did while she was there. (While in England, she sent out newsletters and tweeted constantly, posted on Facebook and she threw rumors out there that she’d be a part of a Real Housewives show in London) Desperate much?
Yes folks, Jill Zarin is an evil, awful person who has nothing better to do with her time than to harass and annoy me, a blogger from Chicago who simply wants to blog the show and enjoy all the great comments. Maybe she doesn’t like Chicagoans? Or maybe she doesn’t like the Midwest? Maybe she just wants this blog shut down? That’ll win her more fans and make people like her again, huh? If anyone thought for one second that Jill Zarin has changed for the better, think again! Jill is paying someone to harass a blogger, think about that! I hope Mags is getting paid well by Zarin to act like a fool!
Stop back tomorrow when we’ll talk about the Blogs, maybe by then Jill’s blog will be posted, she’s very busy remember, she just got back from England. Did you know she was in England? Yes, she was in England.
Until Next Time…
