I Hate Jill Zarin Watch What Happens Live / Big Brother
Last night Andy Cohen welcomed Ramona Singer and Denise Richards on Watch What Happens Live. Regardless of all the criticism Andy’s faced over the last few weeks, he continues to bash Alex McCord. Another montage of Alex’s facial expressions, I really wish he’d have done that with Jill at last year’s reunion, there are plenty of really ugly faces to choose from. Just look at the face at the top of this blog. That is a still photo of Jill’s reaction to Ramona reminding Jill that she asked the other ladies not to film with Bethenny. That’s Jill’s “I am busted, what the hell do I do now” face.
Ramona did really well on the show tonight, she was restrained and was able to get her points out there with little effort. Ramona managed to defend Alex even while Andy joined the brunette’s, his hair color notwithstanding his disdain for Alex is ridiculously obvious and is getting pretty ugly.
Ramona pointed out to Andy that “people” are very mean to Alex this season and Andy deflected from himself and turned it to the other Housewives were mean to Alex. Denise pointed out that Alex held her own and was able to speak her mind much better this season. I don’t think that Denise meant that as a compliment, she is Brunette after all.
Andy’s three obsessions tonight:
2. Andy allowed Ramona to apologize and explain her remarks that she made at Jill’s Bullying Event (the one that Luann thought was an event where she was supposed to Bully people)
3. A Montage of Ramona’s antics over the course of the season was shown. Andy asked Ramona if she was a “nutbag”? In the midst of the New York Housewives, Andy asks Ramona if she’s a nutbag? Has he met Kelly?
Denise was asked which housewife would best be suited to be set up with her ex-husband Charlie Sheen – Kelly Bensimon. Naturally!
Denise also mentioned a few times that she might make a good Beverly Hills Housewife, Andy seemed to think it was a “great idea”. This is something that viewers have talked about for months! Is Cohen really out of the loop?
Denise mentioned it again on the After Show, rumor had it that she was offered a spot on the show but turned it down, maybe she’s re-thinking her decision. Andy certainly seemed excited about the possibility of Denise as a Bravo Housewife.
The After Show was a WHOLE lot better than the show that aired, take a look, Ramona is hysterical, she did great! Ramona was asked the “Shag, Marry, Kill” question and her three choices were Bethenny, Jill and Luann. She struggled but ended with “I’d Shag and Marry Bethenny and Kill both Luann and Jill”. Outstanding!

The Real Housewives of New Jersey
The Manzo boys have joined the bandwagon of housewives selling their wares, Chris and Albie have joined forces with Chris Laurita, Jacqueline’s husband to distribute “BLK Water” which is actually water infused with fulvic acid turning the water black, apparently this is good for you? Here’s what Andy Cohen had to say about it:
So this morning I’m drinking the Manzo boys BLK water to recover from the tequila. This is their new product that they’re distributing and marketing with Jacqueline’s husband Chris. It is literally black water; it’s black because it is infused with fulvic acid that apparently is great for you and a wonderful hangover remedy. It tastes the same as water, so you just have to get over the color. Their tagline is “Enjoy the Dark Side.” I dig it.
Andy apparently indulged in a few too many Skinnygirl Margarita’s the night before, (yes that’s what he said he was drinking) Andy’s insinuating that the Manzo’s BLK Water will cure a hangover?
Big Brother Episode 10 Elimination Show By Shannon
This week’s much anticipated episode begins with Julie Chen telling us that after tonight’s vote we will have the top 10. The golden key players are back in the game, and the duo’s are done.
Dominic and Adam both say they are not surprised that the veto wasn’t used, and that they are relying on Brendon and Rachel to stick to their deals. Next, we have Daniele going to the HOH and she tells Brendon and Rachel that if Dominic goes home she is going to be pissed. She also states that she has done nothing but help them to get further in the game. I’m trying to figure out how building your own army and turning people against them is helping, but hey, if Daniele says it, it must be true. She continues to throw one of her tantrums trying to get her way, but it doesn’t seem to sway them. I will say this for Daniele, I really do think she wanted to keep Rachel around, because she has said numerous times that nobody likes Rachel so it would be good to take her to the end, because she thinks she could beat her.
Kalia was all for the back-door plan to get Jeff out. She knew about it almost from the very beginning. She thought because Jordan talked a lot to her in the beginning, and they did have that pinky swear not to put each other up, that it would be OK for her to go against Jeff, and that Jordan would then be on her side. But when Jeff found out about the plan, he asked Kalia if she knew about it and she lied and said she didn’t. She also told him that she was on their side and would always let him know if something like that was going around. Well, since Jeff knew she was lying, Jordan stopped giving her any information about their plans. Kalia would keep going back to her and asking what were they thinking and trying to get information from Jordan and she wouldn’t tell her anything. Kalia finally corners Jordan and asks her why she is distant so Jordan tells her that she heard about the plan and she thought Kalia knew about it. Well, or course Kalia lies again and says she didn’t know anything. Gotta love those flashbacks where it shows 3 days before when Daniele was telling Kalia that the plan was to get Jeff back-doored.
Jeff and Dominic try to have a discussion and Jeff is trying to get Dominic to tell him who started the plan to get him back-doored. Dominic is skirting around the questions because he doesn’t want to say it was Daniele’s plan. After a few lies, Jeff starts to lose his temper. Dominic tells him that nobody told him, that he just knew. After going back and forth for awhile they finally give up. Dominic tries again to see if he can cut any kind of deal with Brendon, Rachel and Jeff, telling them that he can be a weapon that they can use. Jeff is like a dog with a bone, he isn’t letting it go. He tells him he can’t trust him because of the lies and him being a part of trying to get Jeff back-doored.
Kalia knows that her playing both sides has caught up to her. She already talked to Jordan and then she goes to Brendon to try to smooth the waters. She comments that she made a deal with the vets week one and they haven’t been talking much to her so she wanted to touch base. The problem is that the veterans know she was going against them. So to them the deal is voided. When Kalia tells Brendon that she has been honest with him from the get go, he starts to lose it. He starts with his routine that its not rocket science and he has studied rocket science and that they all know she is playing both sides. Kalia doesn’t seem to think when you are with one group one week then switch over to another group the next week that that isn’t playing both sides. This leads to them both insulting each other. She ends up telling everyone that they are all getting used.
Jordan is tired of all the lies being told so they decide to have a house meeting. Kalia tells Jeff how she thought she was with them, meaning the veterans side. Jeff tells her that up to the point where he found out she knew about the back-door plan they were but then he said that in his mind thats kinda the end of a friendship. Kalia still insist she didn’t know, then she changes it to well, she knew but she knew nothing was going to happen so thats why she didn’t tell him. None of the veterans are buying it. They all talk about the back-door plan and who started it, all with Daniele sitting right there. She doesn’t say anything for a long time, until Rachel jumps in and says that Daniele would sell you out quicker then she can blink an eye. Daniele finally has had enough and tells Rachel that she is an idiot. Brendon has to jump in because he can’t ever pass up an opportunity to yell at a woman. Daniele is right when she says that at one time Brendon and Rachel was 100 percent on board with the plan.
By a vote of 7 to 1 Dominic is voted out of the Big Brother house.
The HOH Competition is a ski wall. The houseguests are standing against the wall and the skis they are standing on are swinging back and forth. Every now and then they blow fake snow on them. The one staying on the skis the longest will win HOH. Should be a good competition.
Do not read if you don’t want to know who won HOH!
The live feeds came back on at 9:15 CST. When they came back Lawon and Adam were already out of the competition. The next person to jump off was Brendon at about 9:26, followed by Jeff at 9:42. This competition seemed to be hard on the guys. Jordan was the next one to jump off at 9:49, with Porsche jumping off at 10:18. Shelly was the veterans last hope jumped off at 10:19. Kalia and Daniele were the last two standing, they know they aren’t going to put each other up so Kalia jumps off at 10:28 letting Daniele take the win. I’m sure there was no way Kalia could have out lasted Daniele, she was determined to win this competition. I think her ego got the best of her, because she knows that most of the house is after her, and with her winning HOH this week, that means she will not be able to play next week. She should have let Kalia win it because she would have been safe, plus she could have played in next weeks HOH.

Thank you Shannon! Great job with the recap. This season of Big Brother could have been the best ever except for being forced to watch Rachel and Brenden for another season. I sure hope they get rid of them soon!
