I will admit that since I can remember, I have been the most curious person I know. Not just with gossip like Ramona insinuated, but in life. I remember torturing my father with 21 questions about everything and anything. I still do. I am extremely detailed oriented. I suppose that is what makes me successful in business. I like to know all the facts surrounding every situation, including and especially people.
Kelly looked like a fish out of water at the charity event. Kelly and I have a totally different set of friends. Most of mine are married with children and even grandchildren. Since Kelly is divorced, it makes sense for her to be surrounded by a younger single crowd. It was very uncomfortable the way we were integrated. I wish I had met Kelly off camera. I think it would have been a better experience for her if we had spoken before filming. We really didn't get to know each other until the last 4 weeks. Kelly has stated many times that she had never watched either the OC or NYC version of our show. It must have been very awkward for her without that available knowledge.
I don't know if I should be flattered or insulted by Bethenny's impression of me, but I will say flattered. Bethenny has a razor sense of humor and can pull it off. I fear imitators will take a shot and it will get ugly!
It was not only good to have parents stay with me, but I can definitely say it was not long enough. They do this to me every year...they only stay for 10 to 14 days. We never do anything we say we are going to do, because by the time they settle in it seems they are packing to leave. (I can't help but give them Jewish guilt. Daddy, are you reading this?) My mother has always been my personal therapist. Her wisdom is wide reaching and her heart is wide open. I always brought home strays (animals and friends) and my mother always nurtured them. My mother offered Bethenny her love and friendship unconditionally because of me, but whether Bethenny will accept it only time will tell. I know they still speak, but I think it is hard for Bethenny to hear what my mother is trying to communicate. I know it is hard for me to listen to my mother's advice about life, but she is always right. (Daddy, don't let mommy read this...it will go to her head!)
Every time I drop Allyson off or she leaves home for an extended period of time it brings of feelings of abandonment. I don't know why. My parents have been happily married for many years and no one ever left me. At least this time, Allyson is coming home. I know that is a few years she will be going off forever.
I didn't know what to expect from an event named Denim and Diamonds on a ranch in the Hamptons. It was much more low key than I expected. I usually know everyone at the events we attend, but for some reason I didn't know anyone at this one. Thank goodness Bethenny was with us. The scene with LuAnn was very funny in reality. It was the highlight of the night.
Since many of the fans always ask me about my wardrobe, I decided to sell some of my clothes and accessories on http://stores.shop.ebay.com/ajsales2009 and I am offering fans of the show 20% all TEAM JILL merchandise at www.jillzarin.com Use the code TEAMJILL2009.
