Jill! I love your hair! I want it! You are so lucky to have such gorgeous hair! I know you don't need the money, but if I were you, I would get one of the shampoo companies to pay you to promote their product! You go girl!
I haven't written in a few weeks so I have a few things to say regarding last week's episode.
How in the world were cameras there at the same time an eviction notice was served? Holy crap. How embarrassing?? It was very uncomfortable to watch but sadly more common now with foreclosures at their highest levels. Lynne seemed out of it. It was strange. Her voice seems to change from her interviews to the scenes. Where are you Lynne? You haven't blogged all season. Nor have your children. I was hoping they would use the blogs to defend you and show some remorse for their behavior (though typical for many teenagers).
I cannot tell you how shocked I was to hear you could be evicted for not paying the security deposit. The second shock came when Lynne said it was for $10,000! This is the third gorgeous home they have lived in since she joined the show. On top of that, didn't they buy their daughter a new car last season? Did she and her daughter have expensive plastic surgery this season? She talked about how successful her cuff line was. Frank said he couldn't pay the deposit "on time." If he paid it now, they would let them stay I am sure. Lynne earns money on the RHOC and with her cuff business, so where is the money? It isn't paying for college is it? Why aren't the kids in school? Why don't they work? Why? Why? Why? Please Lynne, come on the blogs! Frank is not the only one suffering, but why are they living above their means. Frank is wrong not to share their financial situation with his wife. But Lynne, your kids DO NOT deserve ANY explanation from your sweet husband who is trying to make you and the girls happy. You need to tell them to go to work and STOP putting demands on you for "stuff" until things get better. Talk to Vicki, she can help you. You need a serious financial intervention.
Now...onto episode 14.
Everyone at the crazy lunch needed to take it down a notch. Obviously this was a 4-minute excerpt of a 30-minute conversation, but I think we heard enough. At least I heard enough from Alexis. Seriously, why do you have such a strong opinion about someone you just met (and on a TV show yet.) Tamra, on the other hand, is another story. I thought they met through the TV show, and that's how they became friends. True friends? Only time will tell. They both love to have their "day in court" and I relate to the "you can dish it but you can't take it" story. No one is more sensitive than me! Where Vicki and I would react differently, she wouldn't listen. Maybe they were saying something she could learn from. I think Alexis had something important to tell her. She needed to tell Vicki that Vicki hurt her feelings. Vicki needed to listen. Period. I really miss Jeana right now, don't you? Lauri where are you? At least that group had deeper relationships that were somewhat real. Lauri REALLY worked for Vicki before Season 1. Jeana and Vicki were neighbors. Not one relationship here is real anymore. Gretchen, I do adore you and saw you trying to make peace. Two comments about the prayer circle. Alexis loves to hear herself talk and her next "job" should be the hottest female Pastor in the OC. (Great name for a TV show!)
Jill! I love your hair! I want it! You are so lucky to have such gorgeous hair! I know you don't need the money, but if I were you, I would get one of the shampoo companies to pay you to promote their product! You go girl!
Jill, I think you are great. I like the NYC housewives. I find that Alex McCord is strange. She can't go to a girls night out without her husband, Simon? I think she likes to seek media through attention. Kelly needs to get over it or get counseling.
Jill, i have got to say you should be a stand up comic, truly you tell it like it is and i love that. I personally think all you women on the NYC show, show class and fun. Maybe some arguing but you girls have nothing on the girls from the OC or Atl. Those women need serious help.
Jill got bashed on the finale unfairly, she has the best looking hubby, the nicest relationship with her hubby ( that says something about her) of any of the other snipers. They ALL took turns bashing each other but for the ending to have Jill getting it the worst, No, she is the nicest. Ramona is a whack, Jill was great to go bust in on their pedi's, so what, Alex freaking out? give me a break, grow up, Jill wasn't an ax murder coming to get you or anything like that, she just wanted to visit.Geesch!
Jill, I like you and I think you have a big heart, and I felt sorry for you when everyone jumped on you on the reuniun show. I think you and Bethany could be friends, I hope you can, because I can tell you are a loving caring person and you put your heart right on your sleeve. I don't think you keep score, I think you are just really trying to defend your feelings and everyone is misreading your word.
You have apologized enough. Ramona has said truly horrible things to each person, yet she gets away with it by saying that is who she is. And they forgive her. Stop apologizing, Bethanny has a huge mouth on her. Ramona was right about one thing, she will mess her relationship up with Jason. Give it 4 years. That Bethanny mouth is bigger than her vagaaay. And by the way, Kelly was right, she is a ho bag. They picked on Kelly till she was ready to crack on purpose. Stick with the Countess and Kelly. Ramon and Alex are being nice to Bethanny because she has her own show. And by the way, who cares what Alex thinks? She's a wannabe and everyone knows it. Keep your head high
SHOW IDEA... Get rid of Alex, Alexis, Bethenny, Lynn, Kelly (she can't handle being around too much estrogen and that's completely understandable) and have the the rest of the NY & OC housewives living together in 1 HOUSE (maybe for the summer). THAT would be great TV!!! It's time to mix it up.
Last season you were the favorite housewife of our entire office, this season that is not the case. Your words, book etc... Is all about living in truth, giving, being generous etc... What was sad for us is to see you change and not appear to be true to your own self.
alex may br right. You do come across as a mean person. LuAnn is right there behind you. what makes you think you are so superior than others that you can stand on your soap box, not follow your own advise and systematically berate people? All along you think you have done nothing wrong.
If you continue on next season, I hope you will take the lessons learned, including your advice to others and encourage LuAnn and Kelly to do the same. We need more examples of strong, successful women who build each other up and are truly happy for another persons blessings and care for each other. People who are spiritually grounded, get that.
Be good to each other.
Jill stopppppppppp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! you are doing the same thing to alex that you did to bethany and you will be sorry again .
Jill, I don't know but I hope your apology to Bethany was truly sincere - I thought it was but so much damage has been done and with everything else that's going on in her life your friendship may never be restored to where it was. Keep trying!
Jill, Jill, Jill. You used to be my favorite on NYC Housewives and you have turned into a mean person. Why? You are too critical of everyone and now you are left out in the cold because you have turned so many people away from you. You need to mend your ways.
GET IT TOGETHER. LuAnn is BAD NEWS. Get some better judgement. Bethenny is the nicest and most honest woman on this show, you are making the wrong choices!
Jill, do the Michael Jackson moon walk, and apologise to Beth, and Alex. There is no right answer, just leave them smilling, and us the bravo audience. You fan.
Jill, I think you are wonderful. Your relationship with your husband is so special and it shows how passioate you are towards him! You stand up for your convictions and in today's world that is a rare commodity! Carry on you strong beautiful Jewish woman!
I am really convinced that not forgiving people is not a part of Jewish custom. Be careful of the words you use and remember treat others the way you want to be treated. I must say that I thought it was a deserved moment. It wasn't malicous just what was supposed to be delivered at the time. It's not like everyone didn't already know about the situation anyway you have told them all ... No surprises there! I hope you can find it in yourself to forgive!!!
Jill, Something is wrong with you this season. You behavior has been so over the top and inappropriate. I just wonder why you are so obviously unhappy.
I'm so disappointed in you. You were my FAVORITE last season. LuAnn makes you a mean person. you need to get away from her. Even Kelly grew up and made nicey nicey with Bethenny. And the e-mail to Kelly...........are you jealous that she is at least talking to Bethenny? Stop bringing up the point that your husband, who is a saint for putting up with you, had cancer, and Bethenny never called him DIRECTLY to see how he was. Did you ever think maybe she didn't want to disturb him while in recovery? She did e-mail you to ask how he was, and you conveiently ignored it. You must get a new HOBBY........ Get it together girl, where is that Jill we loved so much. It is probably to late this season, but it is never to late to turn over a new leaf. This is a tiny mole hill that has been made into a mountain, I hate to say, by you and LuAnn. Put your energy into a worth while cause, ie: fundraiser for Cancer research for instance. I'm happy your husband is okay.
It's very exciting watching you women in New York for us stuck out in the boring white trash hinterlands. I know I appreciate it.
jill my god whats wrong with you? you act like oh poooooooorrrrrr me everytime somethings dont go or sound the way you think they should, im really sooooo sad for you, and luann oh my god you two should just go away there is really something wrong with both of you
Jill, you are so full of it! Tonight only talking about your book -- not answering the question about forgiveness with Betheny and then trying to take over Millionaire Matchmaker casting -- you are self-centered and can't see how you treat others. You are toxic and reactive.
Jill i love u i think u do great work and i love ur hubby to im so happy his doing fine and as a fan im sorry but bethany and u were really close and i know it hurts what ur bestfriend does sometimes but i think u to should really make up maybe things will be different but i hope u to do well God Bless u and ur family ps i love ur mother i didnt have mine growing up and i wish i did have one like yours god bless her ur so lucky
Jill- You were my FAVORITE last season. I really enjoyed watching your friendship with Bethany. You two seemed to have a lot of fun together and you both made me laugh. You both shared common enemies and you seemed to have an unbreakable bond. This season, I am disapointed that not only are you not friends, but you are acting like a junior highschool girl. You are now trying to be "besties" with everyone that Bethany didn't get along with and your email to Kelly (Who is pretty stupid and has no depth) was beyond immature. Wake up and see that Luanne will do anything to encourage your riff with Bethany because she wants you for herself. Please stop disapointing me and get back to the beautiful person you once were. Give Bethany a break, we all have our flaws and right now yours are glaring!
Jill, I normally enjoy watching you on NYC, however, this season you and LuAnn are definately the mean girls!! It seems like LuAnn is around every time you and Bethenny have a conversation and putting Bethenny on speaker phone for an audience!! Ridiculous! It was like you were putting on a tough girl show trying to prove you were right about your behavior and LuAnn was right there cheering you on! So sad, I thought you were better than that. LuAnn was around again at Ramona's when you finally had a face to face with Bethenny which it was about time but then LuAnn had to butt in right when you two were getting somewhere with your conversation. It seems you could have been more understanding toward Bethenny with all the new things going on in her life and answered her email when she asked "how's Bobby?" Instead you went on a defensive and attacked Bethenny saying she was ungrateful, money hungry, and basically uncaring about you and your family which I did not see. I agree her phone message was hurtful, however, you should have called her back to tell her that. I hope you two work things out one on one because it all seems like a big misunderstanding on both sides. And Jill, you do not always have to be right.
Ya,Ya,Ya, It is all about you Jill, You expect everyone to listen to you but you dont have time to listen to anyone else inless it serves your needs. You need to rethink your actions. ever heard of "Karma"
Jill, GROW UP!!! I won't even give you high school mean girl!! It is beyound that. Let it go. You do like the underdog so you can be important and in control. The mother thing is sweet but be happy when your friends do well. Jealous(green)is not a good color on you. Be happy for your friends. GROW UP!!! I am sooo glad your amazing husband is healthy. Be happy for your BLESSED life BUT also for your friends Blessed life. It is embrassing to watch you regress from last year!!!! Get over it life is too short!! You should know after your scare with you wonderful hubby. God bless you both
Jill, You can't let this friendship with Bethany just go. Are you kidding me some people never know a great friendship like you & Bethany shared & you can share it again. You two need to talk it out I feel you & Bethany both want the friendship again but neither knows how to get past the hurt. I hope you don't think Luann is the answer beacuse I don't feel she is. If anything she is the wedge between you & Bethany right now. Your my favorite & always will be but you missing something & that something is Bethany. Hope it all works out for you two. Your a wonderful person. Love & Prayers to you & your family.
Jill you seem to be real good at judging everyone else on the Housewives!!But seriously writng an email to someone because they are friends with someone you have a riff with!!! That is so High School !! Grow up Jill you are so much better than this . I really liked you so much more last season.
Jill, I really admire you in so many ways and you have always been one of my favorite housewives. I am still a big fan and I don't know if you will read this or care, but I want to offer you a different perspective on the Bethenny situation.
Everyone handles tragedy and conflict differently. I understand you feel Bethenny should have reached out more directly in response to Bobby's illness, but please realize not everyone would feel the way you and Bobby do. Although Bethenny has been very close to you, you can't expect her to predict exactly how you want her to respond. I am a cancer survivor myself, and personally didn't want my phone ringing off the hook when I was sick. Someone sending flowers would have been enough of an invitation for me to call if I wanted/needed to talk. Gestures from my friends that they were thinking of me were as meaningful to me and more appropriate for my needs, as I would have felt guilty for not returning every phone call. My mother-in-law also passed away from cancer a few years ago, and she just wanted to be left alone, although I'm sure she appreciated the thoughtful notes and tokens people sent to let her know they cared.
You expected a certain response, which I agree would have been the "safest" way to show your concern - too much is better than too little, I suppose. You probably learned that behavior and expectation by having great role models in your life like your mother, but remember Bethenny didn't have role models like that, which is one of the reasons I think your friendship is so meaningful to her. Exiling her from your life for not handling something how you would have or wanted her to is unfair. She has tried to be the bigger person and reach out to you to patch things up, and I can see she needs to work on her temper which has hampered those efforts, but she loves you and I think you two bring something to each others' lives that shouldn't be so easily dismissed because she either didn't know the rules you live by or didn't play by them.
I really hope you'll make your family, friends, and fans proud by being the bigger person and renewing your friendship with Bethenny. You both could have handled this situation much better but you are only hurting yourselves by letting this continue - everyone else is enjoying the fireworks but I hate to see two amazing women suffering from a problem that is completely within your power to resolve.
Food for thought, submitted respectfully.
Jill, I love you.......I think you are "REAL" in everything you say and do! I think it is really sad that the other housewives are NOT!!! You get SO MUCH CRAPT from all of them. I wonder how Miss Perfect Bethenney would feel if someone she loved had cancer and she was the one who had to do it "ALL"; and still smile everyday! I don't think she is a friend at all to you........she needs a real dose of reality in her life; she seems to be so materialistic and so concerned about things that have NO MEANING at all!!! I appreciate that you always GIVE back to others and you show others how much you appreciate them. You and your adorable husband are such a joy to watch on this show and your daughter is beautiful!!! I love when your "MOM" is on the show, she is an inspiration to all! I hope in this "New" season you will walk away knowing who your "True" friends really are. You deserve positive, happy, good-hearted friends, NOT judgmental, harsh, un-kind friends.
I enjoy watching NYC but the more you show your true colors the less I think of you. You are so immature and passive aggressive. What 45+ year old woman saves a voice mail to play for her friend and then puts a personal phone call on speaker for the COUNTESS to hear. C'mon show some freaking respect and GROW UP! Why do you care what LuAnn thinks anyway-RIDICULOUS!!!!
Jill, I couldn't agree with you more. However, "the fight" on the OC, simple added a little drama. I'm sorry but I get anxiety every time I watch the RHONYC. You girls are like wildcats. My head spins when I see you all fighting about NOTHING. I hope we can see you all let your hair down this season and have a good time. You've all got a good life, enjoy it! =)
First of all, I wanted to let you know that I really adore you! I also think you have the best make up on the show! I love your eye shadow -) By the way, I have noticed that all of you, housewifes, do not have a purse hanger when you go to a restaurant: I am selling beautiful ones at www.justhookmybag.com They are the best quality of the market and we also can customize them for a special event such as a wedding, corporate event, baby shower, luncheons, charities...
Thanks to that purse hanger, you will never leave your nice purses on the dirty floors anymore. You will love it! I guarantee =) ! Love you Jill! Cyndie
You are my favorite housewife .. you are true/honest and not afraid to saying how you feel. HUGS to your Hubby and I pray his is doing better. Happiness and joy will follow you.
JILL! JILL! JILL! Please take ME under your wing. I'll be your underdog. ha. Betheny is NO Underdog. I don't know her family situation or why she makes comments about her parents or lack of parents. I'd say she's a fighter not an underdog. Speaking of parents... Why do you refer to your Mother as Gloria? I have three kids and now two grandbabies that my heart just can't get enough of and it would deeply hurt my feelings if my kids didn't refer to me as Mom. Just saying... Anyway. Allie is lovely. Both inside and out. She is lucky to have you as her Mother. I also believe "Wear a bra" and "Thank God for clothes wish more people was raised that way and abided to it." I am 45 yrs old. Until about two yrs ago, I weighed 100 lbs., give or take a few lbs. weekly. I now weigh 145 lbs. due to Athritis in my back and hips which has been dibilitating for me. I can no longer weaar heels, play sports, work, play with my Grandbabies like I want. I see Allie wearing heels, and where it might not be practical sometimes, let her do it. I hope this doesn't happen, and I have this inner nervousness about writing this even, say your prayers, there might come a day when she can't. I don't mean when she's 80 yrs old. I've always been considred a tomboy. My nickname was Tom. But when I dressed up I wanted to look as good as I could. I know this comment is bouncing around from here to there and back again, but there is so much I want to say to you, to you about what Allie might be going through inside. If not now, possibly later in life. As a woman when the Arthritis takes away things that I took for granted. Simple little things such as wearing heels. I Love YOU. Boy thats weird. I don't know you except for a reality TV show which that does not a person make. Your too cool. Oh, I forgot.. I Love your hair. The color, the cut, it's beautiful. Have a good one.
I couldnt agree wit hyou more on everything you said about everyone. Especially the RElationshipd with the older casts. I hope these ladies really read your blog!!!!
Jill-- Your advice and observations are completely right on target. By the way, of all the housewives (NY, OC, NJ, etc.), you are by far, my favorite. You're just such a good person, loyal friend, wonderful mother and wife, and an excellent business woman. You are also always very considerate of others-- and such a doll. I wish you much success with your book. Don't let the Bethanny situation bother you too much. Your real friends adore you---as do your Bravo fans! Best, Patty Cohen
I'm starting to believe you are a mean girl. Before you call someone a freak again you should bare in mind that you married a man who has a 30 year collection of Playboy's at his mommies house. Be more sensitive. Someone like a gay man has been called names everyday. You're not a comedian and it's just cruel and thoughtless.
Jill Girl your Bobby is the best hubby on NYC Housewifes. Looks like you got a good and hope is now fully recovered from is illness.....
Jill - My gawd I love that Bobby - such a mench! Does he have a brother/nephew/friend that is looking for a nice Boston Catholic gal living in beautiful Monterey. Oy vey, he's the best.
How are your folks? I would love to be in a room w/your mom for a few hours. She has a grace and wisdom that is soothing AND direct.
Mazel Tov to all of you.
You looked amazinnnnnng last night with Andy. You are the hootest of all of the housewives. MAN, I wish I could do my eyemakeup like that. You look great and you are my fav. Sorry that Bethany is being such a pill. xxo
Just have one thing to say...You kept telling Ramona on the phone last night that Mario just needed to say sorry and be done with it. He called Luanne and invited her to the party. How do you know that he wasn't going to do just that at their get together? He was trying to do the right thing and be friendly. Not sure why your nose is even in their business. It's just like you to be-friend a new person that "needs" you and has no husband and no other friends. You need to get over yourself and relize your fault in your fight with Bethany..Takes two to blame..
Jill, you are hands down the classiest housewife out of all of them. Thank you for keeping it real and making the show worth watching!
