Is It Really Over?
Jill gives her take on the shocking reunion special.
Last night Heather McDonald, regular comedian on Chelsea Lately, my favorite show, came over to watch the reunion part 2. We did a live video blog and talked with fans. It was so much fun that I will definitely figure out a way to do this all the time to watch my favorite Bravo shows with the fans Live. I will live video blog again on Tuesday night to watch the new Real Housewives of New Jersey. Check jillzarin.com for the secret location! If you don't know already, I am a computer geek. I love to twitter, Facebook, MySpace, blog, whatever with everyone. Last night I was on all of them at the same time on two computers. So if you were trying to figure out who was doing it all...it really was me! Yes, it is me posting pictures after a party at 3AM! What did I do before computers came in the 1990s?
I don't know what feelings came over me when I saw my mom during the reunion, but I started to cry. I am so grateful to have both my parents, not only alive, but also healthy and still married happily after 50 years. A few close friends have passed recently and it reminds me of how precious life is and to cherish every moment.
I think Ramona is just mean sometimes. There was no reason to bring me up in the conversation she had with Bethenny when she called her the "underdog." I had actually been at a doctor with Allyson that day. She was in a lot of pain and Brad came with me to the doctor at Mt. Sinai. Ramona invited me over to see her new line of skin care. I didn't want to disappoint her, so I brought Brad and Ally with me since there was not enough time to drop them off. Ramona went ballistic and wouldn't let Brad come in. She said it was only girls. She was so rude. So I left. She didn't know how to retaliate so she was immature and said mean things about me AGAIN. Shocking.
I wasn't surprised Kelly named me her favorite housewife. I don't know why anyone cares about Kelly and Bethenny's relationship. I know I don't care. I don't think they care either.
Wow, I was so impressed that LuAnn found her "voice" at the reunion.I was shell shocked at the zingers that Ramona and LuAnn threw at each other. I know that Bethenny has a "vault" on Ramona and Ramona was petrified that Bethenny would open it. Bethenny would never do that. Clearly Ramona does not know Bethenny if she thought Bethenny would hit below the belt. But Ramona hit LuAnn below the belt with the comment on grabbing someone's "B____S" at the wedding. It was never filmed, never talked about and should never have made the final edit. Ramona threw darts that day and was out of control. But LuAnn "hit " her back about her eyes, which was also below the belt. I am glad I was not in the middle of that mess.
Is this all really over? I am so grateful to everyone at Bravo and Richochette, my fellow housewives, Bobby and Ally, and all of you for all your support. I had the time of my life. I don't know what the future will bring but if you want to see what I am up to, visit me at www.jillzarin.com. You can subscribe to my blog there. Ally has her own blog at www.allysonzarin.com. I started writing my column again on www.hamptons.com. I have a Q&A there so please email your questions. Gloria (my mom). Lisa (livewithlisaradio.com) and I are collaborating on a book that will come out next year. I can't wait until we go on a book tour together and meet all of you, but first we have to write it!
Bravo is letting me blog on the RHNJ next week, so until Tuesday night, have a great weekend!
