Jill finds the humor in last night's finale and thanks the fans for following along.

Hello everyone. I hope you all are enjoying the summer. We've been in the Hamptons all week spending lots of quality time with Ally. The more time I spend with her the more I'll miss her when she goes back to school. Well, maybe? At least Bobby is giving her driving lessons. . .(I know...she still doesn't want to drive!) HA!

Mommy, Daddy and Aunt Cookie have been visiting along with my sister, Lisa. It's always so nice to have everyone together. Family is the most important thing to me. I can't wait for all of the kids (David, Jill, Baby Micah, Baby Lila, Jonathan, and Jennifer) to come out this weekend.

Watching tonight's episode was bittersweet. Though we all have our up and downs, I have truly come to respect and appreciate the people I have met on the show. I am so grateful to Shed Media and Bravo/NBC for giving me the experience of a lifetime. I have learned so much about myself, and I am grateful to all of you for the love and support you have shown my family and me. I am even grateful to those who don't always like me on the show, but spend their time writing blogs and posting comments. Without you caring about me, good or bad, we wouldn't have been on the show even this long. So I truly thank all of you for watching the show, reading our blogs and newsletters, and writing your own.

I was truly thrilled to witness LuAnn live her dream to sing, sing, and sing. Natalie Cole, a true music icon, was a fan of the show, and we are so grateful to her for spending our last night of Season 4 with us and performing.

What would we do without Ramona and her antics? Even I am not sure if she thought she was pregnant or not, but honestly it was so funny. Sonja and Ramona kept running to the bathroom. I kept saying, "Are you doing drugs in there?" Of course I knew they weren't, but I couldn't help it. It was truly so funny.

When I went to go check on what Sonja and Ramona were doing, I ran into Alex standing outside the bathroom. They didn't let her in. It really felt like they were excluding her. Imagine if two people who you thought were your closest friends were running around with a secret and not letting you in on it. I honestly felt badly for Alex. Is this foreshadowing of what's to come? Nobody sent her the memo to wear leopard either!

I can totally relate to Ramona's feelings. I too often regret not giving Allyson a brother or sister and feel Avery's pain. Ally is lucky to have three half-siblings and three step-siblings, but Avery doesn't have those relationships. If Ramona wants another baby, go for it! Is it too late? Only Mother Nature knows for sure -- but I saw the look of love in Ramona's eyes and I wanted her to be pregnant too. Sadly, she wasn't. Was it menopause? Maybe? I don't think finding out on the boat was the best idea. But hey, what's a Housewives show without drama right?

I want to end by also thanking everyone who helped make this the best season ever. Darren (Zarin), my manager, and Sarah Vitale, my assistant, I could not live without both of you or my family, who supported me every day. Special thanks to my cyber-assistant, Maggie, the Gingerettes, Team Jill Australia, and to every single one of you out there for all of your love and support this season.

Carole on Elitists and Bitches

Carole says what she really thinks of Aviva and all of her talk about her book and things being "ghetto."

Dear Fans,

Let me start with something I stole it from Twitter this week. "The most dangerous liars are those who think they are telling the truth."

I'll say it again. The blonde at the end of the right couch, the one who's prone to lobbing limbs and insults, is an Insulting. Bitch. Some of you didn't believe me. Maybe some of you still don't. But after watching the reunion shows I imagine it's harder and harder to cheer for the anti-hero. Just when you think she can't get any faker she does.

The story according to Aviva makes me laugh: We were arguing, she insulted me, I called her a psychopath and that prompted her to affectionately compliment me on my age. Sure. Her disdain for the intelligence of the audience is palpable. It was too stupid for me to even reply. But as I was watching the reunion, and particularly Aviva and the way she treats people, I was reminded of something my Grandma Millie used to say. (I love everything Grandma Millie used to say.) "At 25, you have the face you're born with. At 45 you have the face you deserve."

I'd rather be 50 and me than be 45 and Aviva, any day of the week. She aged worse this season than a president in his first term. Holy short dress, I don't mind at all how I look. Overbite and all. I'll take it.

When I first met Aviva she was lovely. Really lovely. I meant what I said on the couch, I wish we had seen more of that. Her easy laugh and funny neurotic ways. Instead all we saw was a mean and angry woman. All because I asked her if she hired a writer -- a writer she did hire. It makes no sense. Three years ago she told me she'd read my memoir, What Remains. This was a book published in 2006 about my childhood, my family, my career and marriage, and then the death of my husband, Anthony Radziwill. A man I loved more than anyone I had loved before or have loved since. She gushed over my book. She quoted from it. We hugged. She seemed so sincere. Flash forward and she now believes it was written by a ghostwriter. She even knew his name, and it wasn't Truman Capote. It was Bill Whitworth, she told me. She repeated this over and over to anyone who would listen. And it doesn't matter how many times she repeats it -- it will never make it true.

When they stopped listening she started saying in the press and on social media that not only was my book written by someone else but that it was not my place to have written a book about my life, and my marriage. And, as if I didn't remember, she reminded me that I'd written about people who had died. Um, yeah. I know. It was my husband and my family and my closest friend who died. Just. . .wow. But I wasn't important enough to tell my story because my husband's family was famous, or historic or whatever she said. Because they had money and privilege and yachts. Really. Who do I think I am?

I’ll tell you. I’m a girl from upstate New York who grew up in a loving, if sometimes kooky, Italian working class family. I worked for everything I earned, just like my parents did and their parents before them. I have a proud family history of hard work and small but precious rewards that followed. My family won't be in any history books. I didn't grow up privileged. We didn't spend summers in Europe or Christmas in Palm Beach. A day spent at the town pool or playing in the woods behind our house was great. Much like Heather, I was taught strong values and decent manners. I learned to live with integrity and honesty. I'm proud of my upbringing and the woman I became, as was my husband. As is his family to this very day. I've known people who lived in what Aviva would consider the "ghetto" who have more class and decency than she shows.

All this talk about class and ghetto -- you'd think we were living in communist Russia. Here is the thing. This is America. In our country it doesn't matter a lick where you are from, it only matters where you're going. So don’t let anyone tell you that you aren't good enough because you didn’t grow up on Park Avenue or in a family that had some history, or because you enjoy saying mother-f---er now and then. I’ve met people from all walks of life. I spent time in refugee camps in Southeast Asia, and in the projects of Chicago. I've been to State dinners with Presidents. I met the Queen of England on a beach in Anguilla. No one is any more valuable or important than you are. No one is more important than your family and your friends.

Let the elitists go slow into the night.

In spite of the BookGate dust up I had a great time this season. I made wonderful new friends in LuAnn and Kristen and my friendship with Heather is more special and important to me than I could have ever imagined just three years ago. Friends have each other's backs. I love her, madly. And while we didn't always act appropriately, we had a lot of laughs. I hope you did too.

Thank you all for your supportive and funny and brilliant tweets. And while we didn't all agree on everything all of the time I enjoyed your participation in the show. Even the mean tweets about my skinny neck and my overbite were amusing. Like I said, I've stolen some tweets already. You may see others as dialogue in my next book, and yes, you can all say you were my ghostwriters.

As always,

With love, Writer Girl xoxo
