I hope you are all having a fun and safe summer. I can't believe how long it has been since I last wrote on this blog. I am still writing on jillzarin.com. I will be starting a newsletter soon so if you haven't already, please sign up! I also have an ASK JILL column at Hamptons.com in the Style & Living section.
Summer update: I am packing up to leave The Hamptons as we speak. We had a July 4th party with over 300 people in our home and last week I co hosted a charity event for Help For Orphans in The Hamptons. The other Housewives joined me and we really had a fun and raised money at the same time. What could be better than that?! Now we are heading back to the city to get packed for the second half of our summer. I have a trip to LA planned for a few days and then we are off to a european vacation. We are renovating our apartment right now and it is very stressful for me. I hope when I come back I will be able to sleep in my room!
I have just started watching the re-runs of the show and Ihave enjoyed them all. I think I like New York Housewives better,since you all do charity work and are having parties for charites and the OC does nothing to help others..all they do is eat,drink and be catty about others. I like your honesty,but,sometimes, it is better to think it and not say it...I learned that the heard way as well. I enjoy you all and I look forward to the new season.
Jill keep doing what you do best. You've got the fashion sense to be able to look good in what ever you wear. Those other girls should take a good hard look at themselves, and their wardrobes for that matter, and maybe ask you for a little advice on how to accessorize. Perhaps a fashion show between the "Housewives" would be a good fundraiser for one of your charities.
I just wanted to say that your work bringing awareness to juvenile arthritis is really appreciated. Being diagnosed myself at the age of 14, I understand the pain Ally goes through on a daily basis. I don't know how she was able to wear high heels while walking through Paris! She's much braver than me; had I done that, I wouldn't be able to walk for the next couple of days! God bless you and your family.
Jill- Your a very classy lady. Its easy to see how genuine you are. I love the show. I Cant wait until next season.
I have never written a fan letter in my 54 years, I just wrote my first one to Bethany. I know this is just a TV show but you and Bethany make a good team. If I were you I'd keep that girl in my life. She is so real with you, I really am not feeling those other Bitches. Keep it real, we are with you out here. You and Bethany make good TV, but you might have to take it down a notch. Don't let the "haters" get to you, the most wonderful, beautiful woman I know is from Long Island. Much Luck, Judi
Jill you are the bomb!! I think you are the funniest and prettiest of all the housewives. And your Bobby obviously adores you. Also, I'd like to see Ginger in the show more. She is so cute!!
I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Jill you rock. thanks for being so honest. Would love to have you for my friend.
You make me so homesick for the NY/NJ area. I live in TN now and watch you guys all the time. I love your accent and you warm and charming heart for charities that matter so much to people. I know you are very busy but I was wanting to ask you a question. What is the one thing you attriute all your success to? You have a wonderful husband, a fabulous eye for fabric, and are a fabulous mother. What is the one part of your personality that has made all this possible? RAuroradove@hotmail.com I think you are fabulous and I hope we get to meet one day when I become a successful author.
You and Bethanny have always been my favorites on the show; I love that both of you are so absolutely real.
I do, however, have a question. Your charity event, if Bethanny is providing free (donated) goods and services, shouldn't she be able to at least promote them with a sign? I believe you overreacted based on your friendship. Had the sign belonged to another donor, would you have reacted so strongly and negatively?
I haven't seen the show yet, so I don't know the outcome, but is it possible you went overboard?
Jill - If you read this, PLEASE tell me what you did, you look amazing!!!!!!!!!! I know you did something with the "girls" , was it a reduction. and did you lose weight too? Please let us know on your next blog!!!!!!!!
I love you. I am originally from Somalia,i love your shows keep doing what you doing.

I JUST LOVE YOU JILL, YOUR SO DOWN TO EARTH LADY...I ALSO LOVE YOUR SHOW...I WATCH IT EVERY DAY...LOVE YA...
What has happened to you? I used to think you were the most levelheaded and sensible of the bunch.
Signed, No longer a fan and no longer viewing your show
Jill what happen? How come you, LuAnn,Kelly and Sonja didn't go to the Bethany wedding? Weren't you invited? I thought you made up with Bethany....what a surprise..... I watch Bethany wedding twice.....it was great to see her and Jason so happy and in love... Wow! What a story....sorry to see that you guys couldn't make it .....
Jill, love you and your family. Only suggestion i have would be to stop apologizing so much. Your truth should be left. Your honest and caring. that is enough
Hey Jill, I'm sorry I haven't come in and made a comment before now but for sure you have one southern Baptist fan down in in GA. I also wanted to say that I noticed that the next Design Star contestants used your store in which to shop. When I saw the Zarin Fabrics sign I kind of went "oooh, I know that store". I always seem to pay attention to the surroundings on all programs I watch. Anyhow, hope to be seeing you soon on the next season. I enjoy you on the show.
