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.

Don't forget to watch part one of the reunion this Monday.
I have adored you since the first season. Sure there was fur flying at times, as with all the women who had moments. But all in all, you're the tops. As in LuAnn. Peace
That was hilarious when you said knock knock menopause is calling because that is so true...I was thinking the same thing isn't she to old to be prego, and the chest deal, looks like she was just wearing a push-up bra. It is like really woman get realistic you are closer to menopause then pregnancy...lol. But great season and you, Cindy and Kelly are my favorite. This coming from a person who never posts on these things =).
Jill, You were hilarious on the finale. Your instincts were completely correct. Ramona missing her period in her mid fifties usually spells Menopause or "Ramonapause". I loved how you needed to know what was going on when the leopard queens ran into the restroom. It's good that the season ended on a higher note than previous seasons. Have a great summer.
You are so lovely Jill, but there is one thing I don't understand and want to know if this is just for cameras or if this is the way you all are.
Can't WAIT for the reunion show on monday! I want to give you a cyber high-five in advance for telling Ramona that if she doesn't leave LuAnn's kids alone she's going to have to deal with you! LOVED it!!! I also loved that you tell Alex she's been a "B" this season. She absolutely has and it's about time someone told her so. (Ramona needs to hear it, as well).
You are my ALL TIME favorite housewife (along with Lisa from BH) and I can't wait to see you next seaon!
I think that last night showed that you truly love drama. There was no reason for you to follow after Sonja and Ramona to see what they were up to. And making loud comments so they could hear was immature. I think you were upset that they didn't include you as well. I didn't see Alex making comments like you did.
Hi Jill, glad this season is over. I hope the next one...if there is one, will be deeper instead of all the petty arguing about nonsensical things. I don't think Alex felt left out from the bathroom fiasco. I don't think Ramona or Sonja are her best friends either.. Where do you get that? I am glad she did NOT wear animal print.. Looking forward to watching the reunion parts one and two..
I don't know why you got negative feedback. I just don't understand it. You are the coolest woman. You have a wonderful family and I even like snippy Ginger. You are the best and don't forget it.
Your menopause "knock, knock, knock" was by far the funniest line this season. Beats "thug in a cocktail dress" any day! You said what everyone was thinking and I felt a little sorry for Ramona who obviously wanted to divert attention away from LuAnn on to herself. She looks GREAT and youthful but facts are facts. See you next year!
jill i know you think you are an expert at everything but you must have missed a day in med school when they talked about reproduction i just had my last child at 57 2 wks ago and my daughter had my 1st grandchild at 30 3 days ago so it is possible,alex knew what she was doing at the bathroom door don`t feel sorry for her and just didn`t know what was going on but you spent a lot of time trying like a school girl
I love you Jill, but if you felt bad for Alex why didn't you ask her to join you? Also, you are out of control wanting to know everything that goes on with other people. With that said, I do find you so funny, and love seeing how much in love you and Bobby are, you're both an inspiration to how married couples should support, and love one another. Hope you're having a great summer:))
Jill normally I would agree with you but last night after watching the show I must say I felt your comment was a bit RUde. I am sure you know it is not impossible for an active woman to become a mother the natural way. And although you may have felt it was funny or even Rude. I can recall several times when I felt you and Miss.LUlu have done the same.
Now that Bravo’s latest season of RHONY is behind us I’d like to say good on you & Kelly for speaking up against all manner of bullying these last couple of seasons.
This year’s shooting in Tucson, AZ which injured many (including Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords) & resulted in the death of six made the nation consider how the use of volatile speech can be reckless & callous. Eventually it led to a public outcry against the use of hate language.
We live in sensitive times & have seen home grown fanatics use rhetoric intended to manipulate people, result in tragedy. We have seen cyberbullying prompt the suicide of students. While it is deplorable that there has been no justice for little Caylee Anthony, it is equally questionable to incite violence by developing a Facebook page titled “I Hate Casey Anthony”.
Because words are powerful it is important that those who use hate language be exposed for what they truly are: opportunists attempting to promote their own agenda by pandering to the lowest common denominator of human sentiment. Trying to justify heinous language by disguising it as tongue-in-cheek or freedom of expression needs to be understood as the disingenuous calculations of the unscrupulous. Freedom to express oneself ends where it threatens to infringe on the well being & safety of another.
Thank you for using your platform on Bravo to continue to bring attention to this unsavory practice & giving the bullied a voice.
Jill, love your wacky sense of humor. You always make me laugh and I appreciate that you can laugh at your self as well. Stay true to who you are. You're great!
Jill...I love you! You are very honest about situations and really held it down this season. You look great at the reunion. Bobby and Ally looked great this season as well! Continue to own what you do because maybe you can inspire Alex, Sonja, and Ramona!
You've inched your way back from the horror of last seasons performance. It's good to see you humbled and a little more "real". Ally seems so sweet and lovely and since you raised her you have a lot to be proud of. I hope you continue you change for the better.
love you Jill!! Stay positive and your right what is Housewives w/out a little craziness!! Your my fav!! You are not above anyone and you seem to try to keep everyone more grounded!! haha!
Jill, I actually got a kick out of the bathroom scene. It's so typical Ramona. Didn't pick up on the exclusion of Alex, I think she just lets things roll.... What struck me as odd was when you mentioned to the group what Sonja and Ramona were doing and the fact that you were excluded. You said, "I thought we were friends...." Really, Jill? All you and Ramona have both done is bash one another for pretty much of the season. I found that statement so odd because neither of your behaviors have defined friendship.
Hi Jill, I think you are`Fab and enjoy the show and have been watching since the start. I love your condo and wish I could afford to fix mine. The show is an escape for me. I take care of my mom who has Alzheimers and we have one car so I drive hubby and daughter to work. So I dream when I watch the show that one day I can be a famous housewife. To be able to help others and put smiles on people faces. Would enjoy having my hair,makeup done by the pros.I have a blessed life but one can dream! I carry the key chain they sent when I ordered your book from Zarin fabrics. So thanks for making a difference in my life. Have a great summer!
I am so glad the season is over. I hope you enjoyed it because Bravo really needs to retool this franchise or drop it. The party is over.
Jill, first of all I want to thank you, Lisa & your Mom for the most awesome book I have ever read..."Secrets of a Jewish Mother"..this book was very rich in many aspects...it opened my eyes to many things that jewish people do in celebrating the feasts..different foods that you eat & idea's from the prepective of a jewish Mom...needless to say I loved!!! it I read somewhere that Ally was going to a school in the South...where in the south is it???..I am from the south & for me...I couldn't imagine living anywhere else...I have lived in upstate NY..in fact at one point in my life my job had me living for a week at a time in different cities in NY, NJ & etc....so I lived thru out the state of NY...& the scenry of upstate NY is beautiful...now getting back to HWNY...your one of my favorite..maybe cause we are too much alike...LOL..well hope you will be doing another season of HWNY...looking forward to it...
This seasom you are absolutely adorable. You are funny in a really enjoyable way. And the king and giving side of you is amazing.
How odd. This is the first nice blog you've had about Ramona. You didn't seem to think it was the slightest bit amusing on the show. Hope you're at least kind to her at the reunion, but somehow I doubt it.
I love you! You crack me up. You are a real New York girl, a bit of a tigress. Listen, you look gorgeous enough already. Please don't go changing your face around. Seriously! You look GREAT. You and Bobby . . . there's nobody cooler.
Have a great summer. I love you but I don't love it when you are mean. I didn't like that you tried to instigate a fight between LuAnn and Ramona. Just be your funny, loveable, nosey self. I do love you and don't want you to ruin another friendship.
Love the brunettes this season, Jill you will always be my favorite. Those blondes are giving too much BS this year.. Very childish and boring. Please don't ever stoop so low as to feign bei g pregnant just to get attention, desperate is that... Wait isn't Desprate Housewives a different show... Fiction too if I remember right.. Keep being your "real" self.. Love you....
I love you Jill...You have the best sense of humor about yourself and everyone around you. Ramona, really? Menopause joke was the funniest yet. Have a good break, see you nest season.
Jill, you are better because you have LuAnn and Kelly as good friends now. They are lovely gracious women, and you need to foster good positive friendships like this. Last season you were enslaved by a negative friendship that was getting you nowhere. I hope you now realize that all that person wanted was to use you to get what they want. Kinda like how Kim Kardashian used Paris and now who cares about Paris? There are mean strategic players out there Jill, and you just did not see that coming. So keep your eyes open now, and realize that good true friends are hard to find in life. If you have some, then you are very lucky.
I think you are hilarious and always say whats on your mind without caring what others think. I do think you have tried to mend fences this season and do right by your friends, but not sure they did the same for you! Alex was meddling this season and Ramona is judgemental. I think Sonja was genuine last season but obviously has spent to much time with Ramona and her rudeness has rubbed off on her. Its nice to see that Luann and Kelly are true friends to you though and accept you for who you are and have your back. look forward to seeing you next season
Jill: Your blog sounds a bit like you're saying goodbye. I hope that's only for the season and not for good. It wouldn't be RHONY without you.
You only said what I thought. Ramona pregnant LOL, LOL, LOL. Don't get me wrong I like her dramatic personality. But, pregnant ..... LOL LOL LOL!!!! I'm tearing over here :)
Most memorable line of the evening -- menopause, knock, knock, knock. Hilarious!! That's why we love you so much!!
Jill, you rock lady. Thanks for being yourself. I love your "know-it-all" approach to life. And wish I had friends that were half as honest as you!!!!!!!!
I started really paying attention to you for the last few seasons because of all the press around the Bethenny debacle. I was prepared to think you were a rude girl and honestly, at first I was disappointed in the way you handled her attempts to make up. However, I've grown to like and respect you a great deal. You pretty much tell it like it is and that's fine by me. RHONY gained a follower because of you... I had never watched it before and probably won't watch it if you leave (since I can't tolerate at least two of the 'blondes'). Stay true to yourself and only listen to the 'haters' if they have something constructive to say
Although I didn't start watching until last season I find you to be a remarkable woman. You're smart and successful--who could want more than that. Although your opinions may not always be welcome I think you offer sound advice. Your opinions are spot on and if snarky at times, so what, who isn't.
Keep doing what you're doing. You add a lot to the show.
