OMG jill i love you and bethany, as a gay man. i have to say your gay friend scares the hell out of me.i will not miss a episdoes.
My last comment on episode 3 is that I want a friend like Caroline to investigate for me too! The more I watch Caroline the less she is like the coming attractions made her out to be. The "thick as thieves" line scared me and 2 million viewers, but the more I watch, the more I like her!
I hope you like my blog style. I write it as I watch the episode scene by scene. If you want to live chat with me during the week, go to www.therealfansofjillzarin.com and sign up for chat alerts and www.chictini.com for my fashion looks each week.

Jill You are the best. and I like your friend Bethanny too.You are both beautiful and very wise in giving advice to the other housewifes. Love ya Girls, Venus
Between you and Bethany..2 of the true ladies on the show.Would not call the other ones ladies as I cannot believe that there are really women out there who act so immature. Flaunting all they have and acting so terrible as they appear to care about charitable issues. Sometimes all the yelling makes my head hurt and I just shut the show off! Kelly is one of the most insensitive, self-centered individual I have ever seen.Romona is just plain out of control. The Countess is so high on herself and god forbid we don't address her as such. She needs an oxygen tank at the levels she thinks she breaths at! I give you and Bethany many bows for holding your own and acting like ladies.
Unlike PB, I found your mother to be a breath of fresh air. I thought she gave sound advice to Bethenny. I wish Gloria would adopt me! I hope she makes an appearance next season. I enjoy her.
Jill, you are truely amazing. I absolutely adore you and all you have to say. I appreciate your style of "take me or leave," it is refreshing. Thank you for the breath of fresh air.
Jill, You are my all time favorite housewife. you have a great since of fashion, family, and community... i strive to be like you everyday. With Envy :)
Love,love,love you Jill. You're my absolute favorite of the N.Y.cast and Caroline,oh my gosh, tell it like it is sister. Love you!!!!
OMG...!!!Love you Jill....you have got to calm down girl......Relax......Cannot wait for the new season......hehe...Hope to see more of your mother...She is awesome...
Jill, let me say that you were by far my most favorite on the NYC show. And I agree with your opinion of Caroline, she kind of scared me in the first episode with the line "thick as theives" but in reality, that's how I am. Having lived in Jersey, I see so much of myself in Caroline and if I could hang out with anyone, it would be you and her. You gals rock!
This comment is for Jill, you remind me of family. I just adore you. After marriage I brought my family up in Sunnyside, and Woodside Queens. I have a son still in Woodside and the other on the Island, I am now in Lakewood New Jersey. I just had to comment because I adore you and Bethany. If I could hang around with anyone it would be you 2. I just love both of yours personally and your honesty.
I also actually am fond of Alex, if this show is based on who you all are, I find her refreshing, she is who she is and she doesn't bow down to anyone whether they like her or not. Good for you Alex
Jill Zarin, I love you. Love your style, love the way you talk. Love your outlook on life. You rock, lady!
"The 'thick as thieves' line scared me and 2 million viewers, but the more I watch, the more I like her!" ... Funny and true!
Hi Jill, I absolutley adore you! You are my favorite NYC housewife. If you ever need a second gay husband or just think you should have a gay husband in Toronto please give me some consideration :)
Jill ~ you are the BEST!!! I wish I had a friend like you. I WISH I HAD A FRIEND LIKE YOU!!! ( I'm saying that with Bethany's Jill Zarin voice ~ which is no small task cuz I'm on the west coast LOL! ) You seem so honest & sincere and with high integrity. I say "seem" because I know there is editing and all ~ but you really can't fake those qualities and I don't believe they can be edited out. Are you and Bethanie friends outside of the show? I think she would be an absolute hoot to have as a friend too. You two seem to be a good match despite the little snafu over her advertising at your fundraising event. I can't wait until the new season starts up again. The N.Y. Housewives have become my favorite out of all the "Housewives" shows.
Okay ~ What type of bra did you wear pre-reduction? I think I am approximately the same build & size (5'2", 34 G )and have searched for a good bra for DECADES. How can you wear tank tops & deep cut dresses without everything hangin out and your bra showing? Please, please please advise on make & model of those good bra's you were wearing. Thank you. TLN
Hey Jill... I think you need to have t-shirts made up that say "If you hit me, I'm gonna hitcha back." I would TOTALLY buy one...or two!!!
Thanks for the great entertaining TV!!!
Jill ~ personal question ~ What bra (manufacturer & style/model) did you wear pre-reduction? I am always on the search for a better more supportive bra. I have never found one that is supportive enough and still pretty and low enough to wear lower cut tops & dresses. On the program I see you wearing beautiful deep "V" dresses and tops and tanks without any bra showing. Thank you for any info. you can provide me about where I can get bra's like yours. I am 5'2" and have the same body shape as you. I have wanted to have a reduction for years but I'm kinda afraid and my husband doesn't want me to. Terri ( 34 G )
I don't think any of the housewives should have family members on the show to promote themselves. We don't need to see your sister's radio show or your mother talking non stop, she doesn't listen. please no more.
Let's speak of the website "Real Fans of Jill Zarin". Is this the real Jill? What's up with all the competiveness? Jill it simple does not show you in a good light! I am sure your other fans would agree. How sad....
Jill, I was ready to add a comment about how great, real and true you are, but I see about a thousand have beat me to it. You are my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE housewife on any of the Atlanta, Jersey (wasn't there a Dallas one?). You have such a wonderful and generous husband - I really like Bobby. Your beautiful child looks like a young goddess - her coloring and eyes. And your Mom is just what I would expect, beautiful, charming and full of very good advice. I love the fact that you and Bobby have worked so hard for what you have - love the new decor in your home.
I must add that your slight hair change (was it layered?)at the reunion show was stunning and you looked beautiful. You hair, makeup and clothing made you stand out of all the ladies. I was a red head for 40 years and I know red heads are special, generous to a fault, flirt just a tad, but loved to be admired. You are certainly admirable in so many ways - especially your charities.
I absolutely loved your expensive birthday purse - you deserved it. I believe I have also seen you carry a very large gold or silver purse (as have some of the ladies). Can you share the brand with this Southern woman??? I will not be able to get a brand name, but perhaps I can find a 'similar' one.
You are the best and someone I look up to. You and Bethanie are a hoot together. She is my second favorite. What a woman and worker. I liked the Countess, but she did come across a little "Countessy" though I know she did not mean to. She is a lovely lady and I am sorry to hear she may have marital problems. I hope it works out.
Can't think of the name, but the blonde you told to shutup does have 'crazy eyes.' I get almost sick when she opens them so wide. Not attractive. (I believe it is called bug-eyed.) It is not as if they are grown like that - she does it on purpose!! She is really full of herself. Jill could simply sit out the next show or any after that. She came across as so shallow and I absoluted hated how she changed her voice to that 'little girl' sound anytime she was around a man!! Alex is a little different, but you need someone a little different from the rest of you to round out the show. I think her heart is in the right place, but I do believe she should put a few rules down for her children. They are adorable, but some parents just never understand other people don't necessarily like to be around very loud children who don't seem to mind.
I love you, lady. Hope I hear a word back. Do you have a photo of you or you and your family you could send?
Miss your show on Tuesday nights!! Jersey is soooooooooo Jersey!! You are my favorite Housewife!! You are who you are and tell is like it is!! Blunt but honest!! Look forward to your show coming back!!!
Jill, your blog is like sitting down for coffee (as a blog should be!). You are my fav NYC mom, and it is interesting to read you extend compassion and patience with this NJ strangers. It shows your true colors; thank you.
ick I cannot even watch the New Jersey housewives. They are rude and obnoxious and think they are cute - not to mention just b-o-r-i-n-g. yuck. The New YORK housewives are the best and are my favorites, especially you and Bethanny. Keep being yourself Jill, you are great to watch!
Ally is a lovely kid and Grandma Gloria rules! Just try to give your daughter a bit of breathing room...let her have fun (i.e. bowling with Bobby the other week) and just enjoy doing fun kid's stuff. Not everyone is as driven as you and not everything in life needs a competition. I know you love Ally and are a good mom...just a suggestion! See you next season.
Hey Jill, WOW,this Jersey Girl Stufff is crazy. I blogged Bethenny and told her, you and her are the best. There are no duplicates, there is nothing like you ladies of NY. I think you women should cast some class over the Hudson River to those Jersey Girls. Seriously, when are you ladies coming back!!! Bravo needs to give you and Bethenny your own show. Maybe a road trip show where you leave Ramona in the dust as you take off on your first adventure!!! A Huge Fan Carol
Jill, You are the BEST! You are so real. As I watch you are saying what I am thinking. You put on no airs and really show what it is to work, raise a daughter, be a wife and have fun. You are one of the few who is true off and on camera.
Thanks for being so real!
jill i absolutely love you. your so beautiful and unique i really enjoy watching the New York wives better than cali even though im from cali. I think women from New York have a different way of thinking however i don't know what's up with Luanne as a Native American girl myself i almost died when she told bethany that guys are in some way inferior maybe she forgot who she is and that in our culture or most Native American cultures we are very important and respected. sorry for putting this on u but can you please tell her their r a lot people cheering for her and that she may be the only Native American face people see on tv so tell her to just be herself and be proud of it. ill be praying for you jill and luanne as well. bless u!
Hi Jill! Please bring back your mom! I love her. You and Bethenny are hysterical together! Would also love to see more of Ginger! We have 2 Chihuahuas and we get a kick out of you and your dog.
Enjoy the show so much. It's my favorite! And I agree with the majority...get rid of Kelley.
Do you ever meet fans? Where would we find out? Our family is coming to NY for a fab wknd of fun. I wanted to maybe hit your store and get some fabric for my chairs... Could you imagine... "where did you get that" what a story that would be.... Meeting you would be a great, just keep Ramona away
I would like to thank you for the fund raising you do. My daughter has cancer and it's people like you who are wonderful. We thank our lucky stars for donations they go a long way. All of the girls need to be proud because if it wasn't for your kind hearts people in bad cituations wouldn't have hope. You girls are asome. I was wonderign if you can give me tips on fund raising I live in Wyoming and there is a foundation that has helped us termendisly. I would love to give back.
You are just cool...you dont BS in any shape, fashion or form and God Bless You!!...I would love to see the cast of NJ on the couches across from NY....I think we all know NJ would have a hard time keeping up....LOL
Jill,You are the bomb. I think that you are the strongest of the housewives. When I watch New Jersey, Caroline reminds me of you, but just a little more gangsta! You are too in a very classy undercover way that you may not even know exists inside you. I wondered if you cared for Caroline, and after reading I see you do. I am not surprised. Could you see you, her,and Bethanny doing a show. Why don't you guys suggest an episode where NJ and NY meets?
Jill - Love you, but I don't think your saying exactly what you want to say or how you want to say it regarding the New Jersey Housewives and their show. I want to hear it from you just like you would tell it to Bethany sitting in the privacy of your home. I think your trying to be nice and not hurt feelings. NEXT!!!!! Is NeNe from Atalanta Housewives available?
Jill, You were my absolute favorite housewife!! You made the show so enjoyable. You are such a down to earth person you could be anyone's friend. Also I always liked that you always spoke your mind. can't wait for another season!! I do think Simon is as gay as the day is long!!
Hi Jill, I love how you tell the Jersey girls " what not to do " and " how to do it. " You are so funny and sweet. Hey precious Ally, please help your Mom and Bobby by making dinner once a week, and even keeping your new bedroom clean. I know you hurt alot, because I have R.A. also, plus Fibromyalgia and Lupus. But, there are alot of simple receipes on the internet that require hardly anything. It takes just a minute to make a bed and throw your dirty clothes in the washer. Both of my sons did these things when they lived at home. You are a very lucky young lady, and a busy one, but these chores do not take long. Your mother will be thankful, I promise. And very proud. Can't wait until next season . Have a great and restful summer. Vicki
I just HAVE to tell you that your breast reduction is fabulous. I'm sure you feel lighter, more symmetrical and less burdened. They look soooo great in all the post op pics I've seen of you. Take care. Hope your family is well.
Thanks for being you. You look great, I mean it. I'm sure it feels better, too!
OMG JILL - You totally rock. You are truly my favorite NYC housewife. You say exactly what's on your mind and with TOTAL CLASS. In fact, you're the one that has any class on the show. Keep it real girl. ♥Lupe
I Agree with you Jill..
Im still confused with the whole Danielle and Dina thing.. Its just not clear to me..
But I like the style of your blog.. Kinda shocked you watch the real house wives too. It just shows how real and reminds me that you are a regular person like everyone else :)
Jill, I couldn't agree with you more. I think you, much like Dina and Caroline, have a good heart, honest approach to everything, and strong family values. I could definitely see you fitting in with them. I too think that Danielle is vulgar,possibly too honest and open with her children about certain subjects, and not willing to own up to her past.
Jill i love u out of all the house wives u are my favorite, i have alot of respect for u, and you just so beautiful, and you have alot of class..
Jill, You are smart. Funny. Real. And, I'm enjoying the 'you' part of the show. Many Blessings to you and those you love.
I can see you and Caroline friends. You both live in insulated worlds where real life doesn't exist. You both are so full of yourselves that there is little room to let other people in, It must be really hard to work in your husband's store, spend the summers in the Hamptons, and "struggle" to be a working Mom when you have the resources to take care of anything that might arise.
Keep up the great work Jill. I enjoy reading your opinions, since it come from a unique perspective.
Jill, before you go on showbiz tonight again talking about jon&kate I suggest you do a little bit of homework. Those children have filmed 100 episodes since april 2007 when that show first aired. Everyone keeps saying that it has been over a period of 5 years but it is not! Now doesn't that seem like a lot of filming to be doing for these little children just so mom & dad can buy a mansion and fancy cars. There isn't even laws in Pennsylvania in place that insist that the children have trusts set up for their compensation. We don't even know if those children will ever see a dime for all the humliation they have been put through. Just please do a little research. thank you
LOL..I LOVE what you said about the "thick as thieves" comment. I TOTALLY agree! And yea, I'm definitely liking Caroline more and more now. She's definitely not as intimidating as previews made her seem, haha..
