‘Real’ NY housewife Jill Zarin, poses as fans online?

As Always, My *Comments are marked with a Star* & BOLD

I admit, I watch the “Real Housewives of New York City.” Or, at least I did, until Bethenny Frankel left.*Me too, girlfriend* I always felt like she was the one person on that show I’d love to meet *I Did just that, and LOVED IT*and could imagine being friends with.*I’d Love every minute of it* Before her departure, I had that same rubberneck fascination as other fans, watching these “money can’t buy you class” rich ladies make every friendship I’ve ever had seem that much more precious.*You speaketh Truth, “My Friend”.* πŸ˜‰

No one was more a target for collective derision than the egocentric, louder-than-life Jill Zarin, a woman who could barely stand to not be the center of attention,*Smack dab in the Center* the first to cast aspersions on the other housewives and the last to let go of a grudge.*Didn’t you know, that’s her middle name. Jill Grudge Zarin

When New York Magazine’sΒ Vulture published a post suggesting that RHONYC might fire all the current bickering Betties and just start again from scratch, riffing off a New York Post story, it invited nearly 100 comments.*Yep, Sounds Suspicious, “Jill”* Not so high, and not so unusual a count, but it seems like several commenters are convinced that Zarin, posing under several aliases, used the comments section to bolster support for her staying on the show.*Tricky Witchy* (Hat tip to Gawker for the find!) *Make that a Double Tip*

Here is some of the unabashed pro-Jill gushing:

Gingerette3: “Bravo is nothing more than one big BS machine, creating stories like this to rile you people up. They would NEVER drop this cast. Maybe Alex and Kelly but NEVER the rest. Too many people love Jill Zarin. She is the best of all housewives. We LOVE her!!”

Cookie09: “The problem with the show right now is the blondes have an obvious agenda. They are so fake it’s ridiculous. The friendship between Alex and Ramona causes me to run for the Pepto Bismal (sic).Β Give Jill Zarin her own show and get rid of these co-stars. Bring Kelly along for laughs. I think this is BS to drum up ratings btw.”

JillZarinFan1: “Why is Bravo panicking? Who can say Beverly Hills will do well again? I would agree with the long needed removal of Alex McCord as well as Ramona who has obviously drank herself into another reality. But I watch the show for ladies like Jill Zarin, the Countess and even Sonja who is funny as hell to watch. I agree the episodes without Jill this season were iffy, but last week was great. Jill has a star quality that makes the show great.”

What makes this even remotely interesting is that this would be a repeat offense by Zarin, *Why am I NOT surprised!* who was pegged by Gawker as the perpetrator *Ok, I thought of a few choice words for it, but I’ll go with perp!* of favorable Amazon reviews of her book, “Secrets of a Jewish Mother: Real Advice, Real Family, Real Love.”*Which she continues to hock every chance she gets*

The unwritten laws of the Internet dictate self-policing and calling out when it seems like a troll is afoot. Hey, A Troll is afoot, and a Loud mouth, too! (I was calling Out!) πŸ˜€

More from Vulture::

Cparkeast: “As always Jill goes over the top with one comment after another herself under different names. There really aren’t that many Jill Zarin fans in this world so of course the readers would get suspicious.” *Now that’s, An Understatement!*

*I LOVE THESE “Call Outs”*

Gerji6: “Gingerette, You certainly are pro-Jill Zarin. I can’t help but notice that you have the same name as her dog…G I N G E R ! Coincidence?”

(Which sparked this response from @freelyvivacious:Β @Gerij6 – Not at all a coincidence. Jill’s fans go by the name Gingerettes. Annie and I came up with it. It is originated by her beloved Ginger and her ginger hair.)
*Yeah, Right!*

Leatherfacedtranny: “OMG i take back every nice thing i said about Jill Zarin. Her interns are clearly back at work trying to save her butt. Every nice thing about Zarin on this blog is said by someone who has never commented at NYMag before. Conspiracy!”*I LOVE YOU Leatherfacedtranny* πŸ˜‰
*Good for you, LFT, Me thinks, transparent enough to see thru, too* πŸ™‚

If Zarin is trying to win the hearts and minds of fans to stay on the show, or even spin-off her own,*NOT Gonna Happen, Jillsy.. You, Don’t Even, have that kinda “Fan Base”, & to be honest, I’d Rather watch Reruns of Real Housewives of Miami (We all know how that worked out) before I’d watch a ‘Cough’ Show, “Staring You!”* she has a ways to go to convince people she’s deserving, *Ya think* if people assume so readily she’d come up with fake fans to keep her 15 minutes of fame. *No, Not Jill Zarin! *smh* She’s such a DESPERATE FAMEWHORE. She’ll Do & Try Anything to keep her fugly Mug on TV, and In the public eye. She’s burned her Bridges, and Can’t get back to the “Other Side”.
DEAL WITH IT, Jillousy.
My Beloved, Bethenny Frankel is 1 in a Million, because She’s HONEST, Funny, Sweet, Smart (In Every Way), Loving wife & Mother, and because of All that, She’s Very Entertaining for TV, her fans(ME), and Viewers(ME). Her Show, Bethenny Ever After, that She Executive Produces, is AMAZING. I personally Love that its Truly Based on HER LIFE, and Excludes petty “Girl fights, Jealous taunts, Envy of others Lives, and Conversations with a “So called friend” that says via phone, (with a “friend” listening) “WE’RE DONE”. Remember Jill, You said that to Bethenny.. Your Loss, and Look how She’s Been Blessed in Return. ABUNDANTLY.* πŸ˜€

Bethenny “Explains Scary Island” Featuring: KooKoo Kelly!


During the Show, When I Saw Bethenny

Someone from Audience asked Bethenny about “Scary Island”
..She says it was “SO MUCH WORSE” than what we saw on tv, (Can u imagine..lol) said, Kelly was “Truly, in what seemed to Her, Producers & Others as a Medical Breakdown, Meltdown, Just Needed Help, she said. B, said, Producers placed Security Guards outside Her (B’s) Door, until They “Removed Kelly from the Island”. Said that Kelly was like, “Chanting”, One of producers names is Matt, & Kelly starts “CHANTING” Matt-matt-matt-matt Over & Over, Up in his face… They All Were Freaked, Scared & Worried about Her Behavior & Health. They finally got Kelly off the Island the Next Morning. Whewww!!
Bethenny DID go into Detail about it..
Can We Say


Btw.. Gina, No Longer works for Bethenny!
They’re Still Friends, and Bethenny Said, She’ll Always Be a Part of Their Family. B said, (*On this Night*) Gina had some Medical Issues *Partial Hysterectomy* & Family Issues, and she Needed to take care of herself & other issues as Well. πŸ™‚
Bethenny Speaks to her all the time. I could tell, there is MUCH LOVE for Gina πŸ™‚

Bethenny & Jason, now have a Nanny. She’s NOT a Live in Nanny, She’s usually there 8a-5pm 4 days a Week.

We’ll have to Stay Tuned to See What Happens πŸ™‚

My, Night Out.. with Bethenny Frankel

1 Comment

FYI: MY Thoughts Are Marked with the *Star* πŸ™‚

Wow! Here I sit, waiting for *MY Favorite Reality Star* Bethenny Frankel, to walk across the stage, and Do “One” of the things, she does best, Talk. πŸ™‚

Songs are playing, before Our New York State of Mind, Skinny Girl Margarita Loving, Getting Married, What?, NOW, Real Housewife, Baby Having/Loving & Living Life Happily, Ever After, *Phewww*… Appears.

“I Got a Feeling, Tonights Gonna Be a Good Night”, Begins playing, and ignites the Packed out House. Blasting in the tone to set the scene, and Start the night…”Tonights gonna be a good night!”

*C’mon girlfriend, Grandmas butt is getting Numb*
Bethenny, Ever After *FINALLY* Enters the Room, From the Back of the House. It’s just like Her, to Come in for all her fans on the back rows to get pics . *Im so friggin Excited*
Waving & smiling, Bethenny enters the stage, and Moves into Our World…”ALL is Good.”

*Let’s Go!!! This “Grandma” is Ready for Her “Skinnygirl Night Out”* πŸ™‚

Bethenny looks great. She’s Petite, slendor & looks very healthy (For all that thought she didn’t, SHE DOES πŸ™‚
She’s wearing Jeans, Sexy-Red Corset Top, trimmed in Black, and short Jacket. She tells us, Her top Is an Omage to Kim Zolciak, then lifts her Boobs Up, Cause Hers aren’t Mellons, ala..Kim’s.
She’s wearing her “Trademark” Black Stilettos, and is proud to say, she found on sale @Bloomingdales (I think) for $79.95 (Never pays full price for anything πŸ™‚ *Even more of a reason for ME to Love Her* πŸ™‚
(*Ask her, Who Shoes made by..I forget, Hey I can’t remember EVERY Detail*:)

On this Friday night, March 11th, 2011…It is the Day after the Horriffic tragedy in Japan. Bethenny shares her heartfelt feelings, and encourages us all, to do whatever we can to help. Whether it be Donations, or keeping everyone affected, in our thoughts, and prayers. (*Very fitting, Needful, and Touching Moment*)

She begins with a sip of her Skinny Girl Margarita, that’s been placed on a “Bar Style table”, includes a vase of red roses & babys breath, A bottle of her popular *Can’t keep on Shelves* Skinny Girl Margarita, her #1 Best selling books (*Which she Never picks up, for self promotion*) and, a glass of water. *she never touched* πŸ™‚

After much of her amazing, wit & humor is unleashed, She tells us of the setup for the night, then Digs her Stilletos in deep.

*Nothing, NOTHING is OFF Limits, and She tells us so*

Questions start popping out of the audience, before girlfriend can even get a swig of her SG-Margie, Bethenny doesn’t mind. She answers every question. *girlfriend Rocks this chit*

*Bethenny, Bravo & the NY Housewives*

(More Questions) The juiciest one was, “What did Bravo think of her NOT returning to Real housewives of New York?” She laid it out, Said, Bravo was VERY UPSET with her for NOT RETURNING *I could tell from the look on her face when she said it. *Bravo Was pissed* *Good for you B, Showed em what your made of, Amazeballs πŸ™‚ You go with your Bad Azz Self*
She adds that She & Jason Both felt it was as if she wasn’t being “True to Herself” if She continued in RHONY, It was…Just Not Her “Reality”..

*Jill Zarin..Ugh*

Jill Zarin, is Still a Sore spot for Bethenny, she was asked “If she had to choose who she hated most, between Kelly & Jill, which one would it be?” After pondering for a minute, She says, She would have to say Jill, because Kelly is truly crazy, and she DOES Mean CRAZY (As in, She truly believes that Kelly has some ?? “Mental Issues”) *Who the eff Doesn’t think that?*

Jill has been mean to her not only publicly, through the media, but in a personal, private way as well. *Ouch.. Didn’t think Jill could be MORE hateful, NO.. Wait.. Yes, I Did*
Bethenny does add, She truly doesn’t have hate for her, Kelly or anyone for that matter. “Its just not in me to hate” she says. *God Bless you girlfriend, you’re skins thicker than mine, but I dig where you’re coming from* #NOH8 πŸ™‚

*Bethenny Ever After*

She Enjoys, Bethenny Ever After, Schedule isn’t that Bad, its Having ALL the people (Up to 16) in their tiny apartment off & on, That drives her Nuts.. *Would crack me too, I feel you girl*
As She says, “It is, What it is.” But, Strict Schedules are made & yes, its Insane, but Wouldn’t change her life now, for anything. Part of that Scheduling includes,

*Mondays, Mommy & Bryn*

MONDAYS, and Mondays are ALWAYS, Mommy, and Bryn Day. They go out to lunch, or just do whatever they feel like doing on their Day πŸ™‚ *I Love that part πŸ™‚ Our Bethenny, Has definitely been STUNG HARD by the Mommy Bee & it Glows*

“A Place of Yes – 10 Rules for Getting Everything You Want Out of Life”

Bethennys New Book “A Place of Yes” is due for Release on March 22nd, 2011. She says, “You all saw me burn the first book in the BBQ, Right? Says she felt that So many things happened in her life, after writing it that there was no way she could let it be “A Place of Yes”. She had grown so much emotionally, physically while pregnant with Bryn & got married. She had so much more to put in the book, to get it to “A Place of Yes”, And Now its there. She Wrote the Dedication In “A Place of Yes” to Her FANS, read it to us. Very touching, brought tears to my eyes. It’s evident how Much Her Fans truly mean to Her. She Read it, from her heart, and with a sense of pride & happiness that she had dedicated it to her fans. πŸ™‚

She talked about, a lot of the chapters titles & I’ve gotta say, I can’t wait to read it, It Sounds Awesome. *of course, you knew that’s what I’d say* *its true* πŸ™‚

*Cookie-DaBooBoo & Bryn’s Kitchen Chaos*

She was asked, if she had thought or planned to Write a Childrens Book, She says (Excitedly) YES, (Describes for Us)
Would have Caricatures of “Cookie/DaBooBoo & Bryn” titled (roughly) Cookie & Bryn in the Kitchen or DaBooBoo & Bryn’s Kitchen Adventures/Chaos. Can you imagine, she says.. Drawings of Cookie wth flour on paws, face, Nose & Same for Bryn (*LOVE THIS IDEA*) She’s kind of burn out on food books, serious or about herself. πŸ™‚

*Julies job title*
“Coordinator of Chaos – COC…”Cock”

(she said the word “Cock” always comes in somewhere…lol) B says, can you imagine.. “Ask my Coc, this or that” lmao..
*Everything Leads back to the Cock, She Says*…LOL:)
*Btw, Congrats Julie.. I think you’re an Awesome, COC πŸ˜€

*Max..Oh No You Didn’t* (Sorry! but..dude, You asked your Boss’ Husband, at Skinnygirl party for a condom?? (Had to throw that in, after watching last nights episode of #BEA) ..Max, Boi..you got “Some”, Balls. Probably Little ones, but Dude!! *smh*)

*Max WAS fired*
She felt he wanted the job, because of the “Limelight” & She tells him, Hey..”This is My Business, I’m Running from This (Home) Office..”He (Max) didn’t take it Seriously” So, she Fired Him.. (*Good for Her, NO Slackers work for B*)

She “Loves” people who Show their “Passion/Priority/Discipline…”Gonna Do My Damn Best at My Job” type of people (In General) & Whom she Hires to work for Her.

*Skinnygirl Cocktails*

She Asked what we thought of “Different” Skinny Girl” Drinks (For New Ones She’s ADDING…Soon) All With the Name “Skinnygirl” *of course*
White sangria, Mojito, Sweet tea vodka (Crowd loved this, Hey..We’re Southerners) πŸ˜€ Lemonade and Pomopolitan (Pomegranite & Vodka)
Feedback from the crowd was, Nice πŸ˜‰
*I’m thirsty for the Sweet tea Vodka, Now* πŸ˜€

*Mommy & Bryn*

Talked about Her Relationship with Her Daughter & How Much She Loves Bryn, Being a Mommy, Watching Her Grow, and (As She Says) Growing Way too fast, as “WE” (Fans) all told her it would.. “She’s growing to fast” Pulls Up in Crib, says.. MamamamaMa… Crawls round everywhere.. She & Jason hit the “Baby Lottery” with her, Never a problem, Sweetest, Best Baby..Until few Weeks ago, Out of nowhere the #’s 666 Appeared on her forhead, for 2-3 days Was as if “Whole Other Child” then “Poof” Back to Sweet self πŸ™‚
Bryn goes to bed at 7pm til 7am.. *Dang, they did hit..the Baby Lottery* πŸ˜€

*My Thoughts*

*Bethenny, Was so comfortable, sitting on that stage, talking to & with all of Us (Fans), sipping her SkinnyGirl Margarita.. She Smiled & Laughed all Night.. Her Humor Was Spot on.. She’s in her Element & it shows.. Sharing Her Wisdom & Life adventures with Us all.. She says she Now has found that She “WAS Wrong” Who knew, she says, All these years I thought I was a “Guys girl”, Not many girl, friends in her life but has now realized she’s definitely a “Girls, Girl”..She’s More at ease with it, the hanging out & chit-chatting part of it.. *I Personally feel, its Due to her NOW Being a Mother. She Has more of a Bond with Us “Women”, than She Ever Imagined she would, or Could*.. (Could See the Look of Peace, Contentment & Happiness on Her Face, Now Knowing the Fullness, Fulfillment She Has from it..”SHE’S AT PEACE, HAPPY, COMFORTABLE…FINALLY, AT HOME, Within Herself.. Beautiful to See that Countenance on Her Face… “Its The LOOK of PEACE, JOY, LOVE & CONTENTMENT”*

Ok peeps, that’s “My Night Out with Bethenny” hope you enjoyed reading about it, as much as I enjoyed experiencing it.. Yep, I know.. I’ve been going on & on for days about meeting Bethenny, but..Hey! Its my life & I DON’T GET OUT MUCH πŸ˜‰ So, thanks for humoring me πŸ™‚ I know I’ve been a pain in the Arse πŸ˜€ but, I truly do appreciate you all that have Supported My Excitement.
