Wendy Williams just said on her hot topics this morning that Jill Zarin secretly taped the entire interview with Andy Cohen in order to sell the tapes to gossip blogs. The gossip bloggers instead contacted Andy to tell him what was going on. I’ve done a search of the likely sources for this story and can’t find anything. Wendy almost never has an independent source. However, she is on good terms with Andy and they often appear on each others shows. Wendy says her source claims that there is no way Jill is returning to Bravo. If true this is an incredibly crazypants situation because Jill has been saying that she was concerned that Bravo was trying to set her up by pretaping the show. It’s the old double cross. Also if true, you would think someone would buy the tape and we will eventually have access to the unedited version. Continue reading »
I’m not sure I can blog this tonight after just blogging RHONY, but I’ll give it the good old college try. Andy starts with asking Jill what she has done to her face. She says she’s taking Omega-3 and Andy says, no really, what are you injecting into your face? And Jill tells him Pat Wexler. Andy says she looks great. Was that a promo for Pat Wexler that Andy just had to get in there before things get dirty?
Jill asks Andy why she was fired. Andy is all like Jesus, Jill. How many times do we have to talk about this? Andy said that the last reunion was so toxic they knew they could not bring everyone back because the relationships were not going to change. Hope springs eternal for a RHONJ shakeup. Jill said it felt like a death. She felt like Andy was “her parents” (because that is not weird at all) and that he liked Bethenny better. She was also hurt that Andy likes Giggy better than Ginger. Those would be dogs, by the way.
Jill just said she has learned to let things go. I wait for the lightning to strike her but God apparently is not watching. Jill is doing the polar opposite of letting things go. She hasn’t stopped whining about it for a full year. Now she is asking Andy if now, looking back at the ratings he realizes he made a mistake in letting them go. Oh my Lord in heaven. Jill is clueless that she is one of the least liked housewives in Bravo history. Continue reading »
This is called phoning in a blog. I am not fully recovered from all the TV last night and the amount of wine required to watch it. So my friend TEB has kindly allowed me to post this blog entry written by her. It’s a timely piece full of accusations and deception about Jill Zarin, who will be on WWHL tonight. I have no independent knowledge of this situation. Please direct all your negative comments, legal threats, etc. to TEB. Don’t kill the messenger. :)
I got a call on Friday that piqued my interest (and it seems many of yours, too!). The person told me that Jill Zarin had some fake twitter accounts and to go check out @frostedyummies timeline. I read through it and was immediately convinced it was indeed Jill Zarin who was tweeting those awful remarks (you should go take a look at their TL! They write horrid stuff about Bethenny and the new NYC ladies Carole, Aviva and Heather). It was then confirmed that it was Jill by an insider.
@FrostedYummies wrote things like “@Bethenny will you tell your wart faced daughter you destroyed a woman to succeed” and “@Bethenny SCAMMER FRAUD LIAR WHORE Even your mother says so. Evil girl you owe @JillZarin apologies” Continue reading »
Almost a year ago, when I started this site, I wrote my third blog on a visit with Jill Zarin. There were a lot of things I left out of that blog. Like the fact that I had a panic attack in the girdle department, because apparently I had some traumatic experience with shapewear in my childhood, or more likely because I’m just, as some of you are beginning to notice, crazy as a bessybug. At the time I was neither a fan of Jill or one of the maniacal haters. Jill Zarin seething hate was all the rage, and I really didn’t want to feed into all that. So I sort of whitewashed what happened. Suffice it to say Jill was very phony and really not that interested in talking to me until I mentioned I had started a blog. I just didn’t find Jill interesting enough to write about. I have probably mentioned her less than a half a dozen times here and do not follow her on twitter. Continue reading »
Basically, this is a relationship where despite loving each other they unintentionally push each others buttons. Which is great for us and not so great for them. I may be naive but I actually believe Bethenny and Jason. I believe the boat story despite some coast guard guy saying they were never in danger. I don’t think it was a life or death trauma, despite Bethenny’s over reaction. But I believe the TV therapist had a broken GPS and didn’t know how to get through the water without running aground. I think that while there are “scenes” where the producers tell them what they want them to talk about or where they want them to go, that we see the real Bethenny. I think we see the real Jason too. At least as real as you can be on a “reality show.” I also don’t see more product placement on the show than any of the others. I guess I am pulling for Bethenny to get better, to get happier, to enjoy all the great things she has. Am I the only one? The ratings for this show are not good. Am I the only one watching?
