Parts of the episode, I still maintain were like soft porn. I consider myself an aficionado on romance and could write a book with suggestions on how to seduce your man -- but some things are just better left to your imagination. I thought LuAnn and Jacques' reunion was the most romantic of the three scenes because it felt truly authentic. Nothing feels the same as a new love. OK I admit it, I am a bit of a prude when it comes to showing too much on TV. Also, I always think to myself, "What would Allyson say"? I was actually so disturbed by the soft porn nature of it that I warned my fans ahead of time in case they watched the show with under-age children. Yes, we got the memo that you love each other to death. . .can we move on now?

those scenes absolutely were soft porn. i am glad you didnt invite ramona to your focus group and i hope you don't invite her to any events in the future.
You were so cute and funny in the Morocco episodes, don't go back to being catty and getting into petty squabbles. We want to like you, Jill.
hi jill, im glad you didnt invite her, always do what your gut tells you. i dont bleame you for not inviting you. what she did to you in Kodak was not ns and kisses to youice. hug
your a fantastic lady. you always make me laugh, when you have gotten upset, ii literally have felt for you and cried. hugs to you jill
Loved you blog! I think that some of the women use other people's feuds to attain their own goals. I also have to mention that Allyson is such a beautiful girl and one can tell that she has a genuine, sincere character. I want to wish you the best in all your business ventures and personal goals.
Jill, I am beginning to think that Alex is obsessed with you and Luann. Her comments regarding you and Bobby in her blog are uncalled for. I love your marriage! I love your determination! I love your shapewear! Kudos!
Bobby is the best-dressed husband on the show! Loved seeing you pick the fabrics for his suits. Looking forward to your Skweez products!
Jill Thank God for your apparent change from last season! I like the new improved Jill, keep it up. I think you absolutely did the right thing in not inviting Ramona to your "focus" group session. I don't know what is going on with her but she is a totally loose cannon. She could never quietly sit through any presentation that wasn't all about her and make intelligent, professional comments. I really think she needs therapy and yes, she does drink too much. Keep your calm assertiveness and keep your heart soft to others who need you. I love seeing the affection this season between you and Bobby..Gotta love your man, right? Best of luck!
I think your line looks great! Best of luck, Jill.
About the whole Alex-LuAnn-Ramona: didn't you make up with Alex? Wouldn't it be better to just not comment on that? Me, I think LuAnn was awful. Why can't she just shut-up, listen to what Alex feels she needs to say and then simply thank her for being a friend to Ramona when she needed one and just leave it alone? Instead she just stirred it up even more.
As for the over-lub and oiled part of the show, I think the most interesting part was where Ramona waited. And waited. And waited for Mario to come home. The rest was just trying to force feed the rest of us that her marriage is A-OK. And Alex and Simon? They just want more face time and this was one way to get it.
Jill, you came back from Australia with plans...
I think you need to keep doing what you what to do and say! For some reason people always want to tell everyone else what to say or do, or how they should act. We only live this life once so live it and try and not have any regrets!!
It was smart you excluded Ramona from your Skweez meeting, you did the right thing and took care of yourself and your business. Well........you are smart and I'm glad you have turned a corner with all of this.
Jill...So glad to see you are keeping a level head about things. I had to dvr the show this week, and have to admit... I fast forwarded thru the "soft porn" part of the show. Not a fan... some things are meant to be kept private and between you and your partner.
Love you on the show, and loved your blog. You are spot on about Ramona. Thank you for reminding us that Ramona did not invite you to her dinner party- totally forget about that. Ramona is so rude and has absolutely no tact.
It is so obvious that Alex is trying to stir up drama for more tv time. Her bad acting is horrible. She's so long winded and off topic, no wonder you guys don't want to listen to her.
I must agree, Luann's "love" scene was more authentic and more fitting for tv.
I agree.. Ramona is unpredictable and you don't want to mix unpredictable with business.. It would not be wise. You are smart girl..
I didn't see anything porn about it. It really wasn't that big of a deal. As for not inviting Ramona, if she was your friend you would have given her a heads up even by text message as to why you weren't inviting her.
Soft porn...hilarious! Bravo did this with the Orange County ladies too. Now, that was soft porn. I got a real kick out of the gals and the hubby's. Mario looked a little dumb struck like he isn't used to being pampered by Ramona. Simon was showing the world how he feels about Alex while she looked a little nervous. Alex looked great in that outfit BTW
Tacky? Maybe. Soft porn? No. I thought too you were coming from a good place when talking to Sonja about her issues -- trying to help explain. I wish you would recognize Luann's bad behavior, though.
Jill, I think you are very intelligent and sophisticated; I also love that your knowledge extends to many fields, and it shows. Alex was the one that brough up Sonja's financial issues at the focus group. I though your advice was fantastic and on target. I think your sister, Lisa, will be on the show next week to offer some advice to sonja. That demonstrates that you are truly a giving person and a wonderful friend; you try to educate them.
As for Ramona, I do like her too. I did see your point of view by not inviting her to your focus group. She really needs to filter that mout of hers; quite honestly, you do not need her ridiculous comments to come out during the meeting; it's unnecessary.
Ramona can dish it, but she can't take it. She didn't invite you to her cooking party during RHONY season 1. She claimed that she needed to invite for people in order to balance the group with your invited presence. Is she serious? She has done it numerous times to you, and I think she must realize the erroneous ways. That's how we learn to treat one another in our own personal lives.
You are a wonderful person, with a big heart!
Jill, you are still the classiest of them all - from Season1 until now. I love watching you and make no mistake, Ramona is no where near as authentic as you.
Love ya. You have really made steps to change and it shows! I am glad you feel the same way I did while watching this episode. Way more than you should see! I can understand your not inviting Ramona.. Good business decision.
You're great, Jill. Your focus group attendees were minus one person for a good reason. Perhaps if you have another one, Alex shouldn't be included! They are certainly true to form as tactless yentas and you are right to want to be around other positive people. Your Skweez Couture line is very nice - by a woman for women! Continued success in everything, Jill!
Its pretty amazing how life is,Its unexpalinable to me, Jill i love you so much Just keep being whom you are.
Love your insight Jill. Can't wait for your new line! Truly, my body can't wait! haha! I'm noticing a theme too with Alex...and will say so as much on her blog comments. I think she is very well-spoken...but about her problems regarding other people. I thought last season that she "got herself involved" in the mess with Bethenny...and is doing the same now. None of you need a protector. Every lady on this show can stand on their own two feet...whether in business, marriage, or the personal sector. Alex is a success as are all of you...and she needs to stop becoming so emotionally wrapped up in other people's issues. Her talents are better served on causes...The reason she feels as tho she is not heard is because she is shut-down when trying to "mediate" another person's issue. It is also just as two-faced to meet with someone else who was not invited to a party you were...and immediately say, guess where I just was? I asked why you weren't invited. You probably should have called Ramona ahead of time since you two are "trying" a new path...but at the same time, only you know the path you are taking. We don't need all the reasons. And Ramona should hnot have been offended she was not there. It was the way in which it was presented to her...the other girls and I were there, you were not :P Anyway, hold your own, Jill, as you always do! I have alot of respect for you. You aren't perfect, and none of us are. Many of us see this crap for what it is...good television and alot of pettiness.
Jill, best of luck with your new venture. I get your perspective on not inviting Ramona, but I also see her's about you promising to be honest and open with each other. You knew she would hear of the "focus group" (I hope you also had a focus group with "real women" and not just your friends) and that she would be hurt to be left out. I wish you would have kept that promise.
Jill- You are truly my favorite of all housewives. It would be so fun to hang out with you for a wknd:) Your taste in cloths and style is wonderful. I also love that you don't have to have alcohol to be social. Up for hosting a shopping trip??
I haven't always been able to agree with you or your actions, but I think your feet are firmly planted on the ground as you say, "for better or worse". Keep up the great entertainment. XO
I have watched your show from day 1 and always liked you. I just happened to be channel surfing and came across you on Fox News (which is distrubing in its self) but you made a very uninformed comment.
You said that people who are on unemployment should give back to the community while drawing. I guess you would not know this but you only draw a percentage of your last wage. You have to look for and put applications in for jobs every week. With that you still have to live on a portion of what you did make. Buying gas, driving around in this day and time, is very expensive.
You really need to walk in someone's shoes that has major financial problems. Since I heard you say that I have no respect for you. Rememeber we are not all as fortune to have accomplished our dreams.
Jill , I adore you and think it's time you STOP telling and explaining to those women. For God's sake they are past grade school and well off enough to hire someone to listen to their darn feelings if it's that important to them to tell HOW THEY FEEL! Dang I'm sick to death of hearing how they feel for one. And sick of hearing them say that yet not once shutting up long enough to listen to how you feel for a second. It's your focus group. You shouldn't have to explain to a soul as a grown woman why you didn't want someone there. If it offends one you did invite they could always leave. Right? They should see they are lucky to be included with the likes of you. Start leaving that nasty mouthed drunk Ramona and I wanna be Alex out as much as possible. I pick up on you like Sonja but all us poor folks can see right through her and now the rest of the world is seeing it too. She is fake and always has been.
Jill - watching you and Bobby shopping was like a comedy routine. Bobby just sat there and you shopped!!! So funny - so very very funny. The line that Alex gave was just plan rude. We all see that she can't get "face time" so she has to come up with things - she will never be anything like you - her mouth runs and runs, but nothing comes out. You and just so good at everything you do - books, business, marriage - Alex and RoMEANA - they can't do it like you do, Jill. I can never see you having to worry about your Bobby, that love is so complete and real. As others have said, having you on "my side" would be all that is necessary. Not having RoMEANA was truly a very wise idea. She opens her mouth and the only purpose is usually to insert her foot. You know business, you do what you have to do. And on another note, your daughter is sweet, adorable and delightful. My best to you and your family.
This was a GREAT BLOG, JILL. I agree with your reasoning in not inviting Ramona to the focus group meeting on Skweeze. And thank you for reminding us that Ramona DID SAY "YOU CAN'T INVITE EVERYONE TO EVERYTHING". I do remember that line! As for Alex the Messenger...I AGREE...you said it so well in this blog. She likes to fight everyone else's battle, to no avail she screws things up. I continue to believe after all these years that EVERYONE listens to Alex, she just does not have anything pertinent or relevant to say...so she gets frustrated. Oh well. I agree about LuAnn's romance scene being the most authentic and sincere in feeling.
I have to agree with LONGTIME VIEWER---I wish you could recognize LuAnn's Bad Behavior! It is nice to see you back to your old self. I'm glad that you are in a better place this season.
I don't know why I like you,but I do. You seem authentic,but control the pettiness of your character. Of course I know the conflicts are manufactured to keep us embroiled emotionally. I am ashamed of watching this show. At your character's age she should have a little more self control and polish emotionally. I feel like you probably do,but have toportray an an emotional basket case at times to spike the ratings.
I think you went on too long in your explanation as to why you didn't invite Ramona, especially with her new BFF (Alex) in the group. All you needed to say is "I didn't invite her". You didn't need to dredge up the Kodak thing.
NYC ladies have a hard time of letting anything go. Stay classy, quit talking about stuff to other ladies that aren't involved. That's the problem, the people in the problem don't talk while everyone else that isn't involved gabs and does all of these "interventions". If everyone minded their own business, then maybe some of this petty stuff would end!
Team Jill!!! I think you and Luann are the most reasonable people on the show. You guys know how to hold your own in an argument and are just plain awesome. I totally agree with you on everything. Luann and Jacque's reunion was the most romantic and Alex does need to not put herself into every situation. Maybe then she'll be able to not be so overdramatic.
Plus with the focus group I don't blame you for inviting Ramona. Business is business is what I always say hahaha. Also I loved seeing you pick out Bobby's suit. And the whole thing about your initials monogrammed on it was hilarious. I can't wait till the next episode!
What don't you consider yourself an aficionado of? Or did you say that as a precursor to your new book? All you do is hawk your products.
Jill, you are the best! I agree with a few of the comments about Luann. She and Kelly speak OVER Alex and it is very poor behavior. I don't agree at all with Alex but jeez! Allow her to speak as we can always learn from each other. Luann thinks she is the queen of proper behaviour but when challenged her propriety goes out the window. Good luck with skweez couture!
Jill, I am SO impressed with how much you have matured this season!! Don't let the others take your focus off the goal of moving forward! Keep it up, girl!
