Coming into this season I can honestly say, I have never been so invigorated, refreshed, and excited to begin filming. I was also looking forward to seeing all of the girls and meeting our newest housewife, Cindy Barshop. I had spent the summer redefining my life and focusing on the things most important to me: my family and friends. I bunkered down in the Hamptons, did pilates three times a week, took walks on the beach, played with my grandchildren, hosted visiting friends and family and rested. I also remember a stunning day in the Hamptons when my sister Lisa and I spent the morning walking on the beach talking about our lives past, present, and future. We both collected a rock that day to remember it forever.
It was times like that, that made me put things in perspective. I always say that you can have everything you want, but not always at the same time. Allyson was leaving for her freshman year of college and I needed to figure out "What I am supposed to do now?" I decided to come back to the show for many reasons. Bobby, my parents and sister were adamant that I come back for so many reasons, but my final decision was made by all of you, my fans. You helped me in more ways than I can ever write in a blog. You know who you are when I say that without you, I would never have come back to the show. You wrote me, sent me letters and gifts, and showed up in droves when I had appearances or book signings in your town. You shared your most intimate thoughts and problems with me and and as much as you thought I was giving you the advice, you were keeping me going and giving me the inner strength to forge forward.
Of course, it would be unrealistic to see the girls and pretend last season never happened. When I invited Kelly over to help me pack for Australia, the conversation about last season and the fight with B was very spontaneous. I was wrong to think I could flow into the filming process of Housewives without any feelings coming out. Kelly was great that day, and I really felt purged after we talked. I can't make people just disappear from my history. My history makes me who I am today, good and bad, and as much as I would like to erase things in my past and never talk about them again. . .sometimes you just can't. BTW, I also over packed!
It was really nice seeing on the show without all the hair extensions, make-up and jewelry. You look so much more attractive and natural - probably because you are more relaxed and happier with yourself.
I admire you, and the ability to put your face forward to all that occurs. Mistakes happen, as we are all human. What indeed makes us diferent from other species is the ability to love, forgive, and move on. Some things are really not important enough to rehash over and over. I see you trying to move forward and just enjoy life. I'm Team Jill all the way, even when things done past may not have been correct. You are human and we must all forgive .
Jill, you are still my favorite housewife. It was odd to me how Alex acted at the party. Its obvious that she wants to start a fight with you and everytime you don't give in she gets frustrated. Oh what people will do for more screen time. Anyway, I think you looked fabulous this episode. Its def feel for you. Its sad that people keep holding onto the past. Holding onto that much anger and hurt is not healthy. I love how you rising above it all. Also, the constant digs at you for being a "mean girl" are ludacris. You actually seem like a loyal and loving friend with LuAnn and Kelly. Let the crazies be the crazies. Can't wait till next Thursday!
Welcome Back Jill. I must admit, I really didn't like the new look on WWHL last evening, but then again, nothing says you have to look the same every day. Last nights episode seemed like everyone was ready to put the past behind and move forward, everyone except Alex and Ramona. I can see that Ramona is going to be the pot stirrer this year and Alex will be her puppet. I'm so glad RHNY is back!!!
Bravo Jill! Just sorry you have to deal with someone that can't let something go. I think Alex was criticized for not speaking up and she got some positive feedback and ran with it. She is way out of line! You have a life and a personality so not your problem! Congrats on being the bigger person!
I totally understand why Ramona and Alex are friends!!
Enjoy this season!
Love u Jill.I just don't get what other people see in Your other cast mates to me there the crazy ones..Alex is nuts.I'm team Jill all the way....
It is very beautiful that you adore your grandchildren from Bobby's children. You are very lucky to have a beautiful family.
You look young and beautiful.
I truly believe that Bethenny misses you, she would never admit that. Continue to move on with your life and enjoying all the nice things you have.
You were very correct, Ramona was horrible with all of those ladies applying for a job.
Be yourself and don't worry about Alex and Ramona.
I am very happy you came back to the show. I really feel at the end of last season, you were beat up by the other women (other than Kelly & LuAnn) I think that Alex & Ramona wanted to make you uncomfortable at the wedding. Alex's new found voice needs to be toned down ALOT!!! She is coming off as the "mean girl". I don't think you owe Alex any explanation starting this season, you did that during the reunion. Keep being who you are, you have alot of fans that love it....
Jill you are wonderful! I think Alex and Ramona like to point out your flaws because it deflects from the many flaws that they have. Alex is very childish and her comments on last nights episode were very petty and moronic. You are fabulous...no one is perfect and id rather be around someone like you than someone as offensive as Ramona and Alex who by the way seems to be using her new ego to compensate for her lack of money and stability. I believe people are forgetting her social climbimng personality on the first season which screams complete jealousy of what you and your beautiful family have. God Bless You Jill! Mazel to a great season.
Yeah, GRANDCHILDREN?? When did THAT happen and whose are they???
As for wearing white, off-white to a wedding...NO, NEVER. I noticed the LACEY white dress when they got out of the car and thought WHAT?!! OKAY, that said...you seriously need to own up to your OWN stuff. It's very easy to find fault with everyone else but when we have to take a serious look at how our actions and words affect others...most of us tend to be very short-sighted. YOU are no exception!!
When I started watching RHONY, I LOVED you. Over the past couple of seasons, I'm seeing a different side of you that is not pretty at all. You can't blame everyone else for things that you do yourself. Yes, we all make mistakes but hopefully we learn from them. I'm not seeing that you have at all. I hope things get better this season.
Jill, When are you going to learn that all texts and phone calls you make to Romona will be twisted and shared with everyone in an attempt to make you look bad. You cant trust her! Stop texting her things about the other ladies. it backfires every time.
I really like you Jill, but you need to start owning who you are. It's ok to make snarky comments because most of the itime it's what everyone else is thinking. Can't stand Alex, the "model".
It is so nice to see you back and happy Jill! With all the craziness that was going on last year (for you and me with family health crises), I will never forget when I received your book with a beautiful inscription reminding me to keep my chin up and letting me know how to ask Gloria for advice. It meant so much to me, especially during one of the darkest moments of my life. I hope you continue to be happy and be yourself. I am looking forward to watching the show and seeing more of you and your beautiful family.
Jill, i admire you for your ability to say "i'm wrong" and "i need to do better".
Some of the other wives don't have that ability, yet they can be caddy - as we all can at times as women.
Lastly, since the very first season I have not for the life of me been able to figure out why Alex is on this show. She is ackward, petty and would do much better just being herself than a wannabe. I cringe watching her and sometimes even change the channel altogether.
Jill: Your dark hair on the show with Andy Cohen made me wonder if that is your natural color-- or were you ever a natural redhead? YOur mother and daughter have beautiful dark hair. Also wondered if you felt any nuance of difference in how you felt-with dark hair. On some level, it certainly might have enabled you to dress differently. If you are a redhead, were there ever any other family relatives that had red hair. Not that my opinion matters, but both colors look good. It's just that you looked like someone other than Jill and I do believe you seemed a little calmer and more fun as a brunette. HC
TEAM JILL!!!! I, as always, totally love you! Keep being you, and don't let all the jealous people bring you down!! You've ALWAYS been my favorite housewife!!!
Be yourself. Don't worry about naysayers. I don't get why so much hatred towards Jill. It takes two to fight. I'm on Jill's side
TEAM JILL!!!! I totally adore you! Don't listen to all the jealous people! You have ALWAYS been my favorite housewife!!!
Jill hang in there I thought you were fine this episode it seems as if Alex is really going after you...she better watch it she is losing fans with her New attitude
Jill- I think you are great. You remind me so much of my family(east coast gals also). It seems that if you are saying something unflattering about someone you are being "mean", but when certain other people do so, it is being "assertive and honest and speaking ones feelings". Wow, what a double standard!! I think you are great!! You look so beautiful this season!! I love the new look. Stay strong and remember there are a lot of us out here. P.S... white or cream at a wedding? Sooooo tacky. You had that right. And for all those who think that was appropriate....wait until someone does it at your wedding.
Yippee! Your back! I have really missed your show, but in particular YOU! You just make me smile and I love how you are so busy with life but are enjoying it, instead of moaning on and on about it! Good luck to you Jill and your family!
I'm glad you're still on the show. Well, last night just showed the nasty side of Alex...she's itching to start a fight with you. Good luck with her this season.
Jill if you have truly changed, then you would move on with your life and stop saying things that are not true! Stop putting the blame on Bethenny for what happened last year...accept responsibility for what role you played in blaming her and dumping her! That is what started that whole fiasco and you were not willing to forgive. As you have stated, "I hold grudges". Learn from your mistakes and don't repeat them!!! Stop the gossip and untruths, and be a true friend (I'm not sure that you really know the definition of one) if you truly want to be a changed woman...then you can become the woman that I admired in previous seasons of RHNY.
hi jill! love you. i remembered you being nice to alex when ramona was nothing but hostile to her for two seasons. sometimes i think people remember what they want to. its scary how some people get so involved with people they dont know. we all have had fights with friends. sometimes it works out> and at other times its best to move on. we all do not have millions of poeple watching us. im not team jill or team bethenny. i love you both. hang in there, your doing fine!
Welcome back Jill. Loved your look on WWHL. I am glad that you discussed the apparel at weddings. I hate to hear people say.....those traditions are outdated. It's nice to have traditions and to continue them in future generations. My Mother was from the Old School and wouldn't let me wear black to my own wedding shower.LOL. The biggest mistake at weddings is to say "congratulations" to the bride. It is supposed to be offensive as it sounds like she is being congratulated on "catching" someone. However, I never know what else to say? Any suggestions?
Jill you are my favorite. Yes you have made mistakes in the past, but who hasn't. I can't understand how so many people are willing to overlook the awlful things that come out of Ramona mouth, but can't forgive you. She is the one who is always stirring the pot. Alex is coming across as the mean girl this season. If she is upset with you, she should just meet with you and try and work things out. As for you and Bethany, you both made mistakes last season and you did apologize, if Bethany was a true friend, she would have accepted your apology and tried to work things out. Jill stay true to yourself and don't let the anyone pull down with petty high school antics.
Jill, good for you! Do not bite with Alex. She is trying to provoke you. Why does she care what you attend? If I were you I would not give her the time of day. You said you were sorry, which you did not have to, now she needs to end it. Don't change, you are fine. Best to you and your family.
@ProudFinn, Bobby has older children from his prev. marriage and they have children of their own.
Jill, I like the brunette color and the bangs from your face, which makes you look younger. Move on from the past, but stop speaking behind people's back, getting into other's people's business and no more potty mouth. Continue with your bedding line and your undergarment line..shoot for the stars.
Hi Jill, still love ya. I liked your hair last night on wwhl, it was lovely. good to see you and bobby. and you are right you can't change, but we wouldn't have it any other way. welcome back
Still adore you Jill. You have always been one of my favorite housewives (OF NY and all of the other casts). You already seem happier, more grounded, and more comfortable with yourself than ever even just in the first episode of this season. I also agree that it shows in the way you look too (love the less makeup, toned down hair and healthier looking physique)...you look great. You're an awesome strong woman and don't let anyone else tell you otherwise.
Mazel to you.
So glad you came back this season. Your composure sitting around the wedding cake while Alex tried to make herself more "drama marketable" was impressive. Good for you!
Jill, I think you get the short end of the stick! Ramona and Alex seem to look for ways to start drama with you and everyone. Hang in there, you are doing great! I love how strong of a person you are and love the new look!! You give all us girls hope!
