It seems Jill Zarin has yet to find a hobby after all. According to a new report, the Real Housewives of New York City star channeled her inner Al Gore last week following her appearance on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live.
The NY Post is reporting Jill demanded a recount after a poll from the show had her losing to her costar Ramona Singer in a landslide. The question of the poll was whose side were viewers on when it came to the two ladies. Andy Cohen read the results at the end of the show with 78% of the votes going to Team Ramona, and the remaining 22% in favor of Team Jill.
Sources tell the Post Jill demanded a recount immediately following the show. The renewed Jill reportedly went as far as to tell Bravo she would get her lawyer to “audit” the polling numbers. Yikes.
Jill denies calling her lawyer but admits she was surprised to have received so little votes, you know, being that she’s so well liked by the fans and all. “They had a problem,” Jill tells the Post. “My initial reaction was surprise, based on my own fans and how they were telling me they supported me. That night, we said, ‘We don’t think these numbers are right.’ ” Wowzers.
Whatever the case, there was a recount as Andy admitted on Sunday night there was an error with the poll results. The final tally? Ramona still came out on top with 59% of the votes. No word yet on whether Jill would like another recount.
Oh yeah, Jill asked her followers on twitter to vote for her during the live show while Ramona didn’t.

She is my doctor.” We’ll let you be the judge with more photos of Jill below.

Kim Richardsand Kyle Richardshave both spoken out about re-building their relationship in bits and pieces, but in a new interview with UsWeekly, Kim opens up about her feelings on the now infamous limo fight.
UsWeekly caught up with Kim, star of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, as she hosted the opening of the Azure Luxury Pool in Las Vegas with Kyle on April 10. The above photo was taken from the event.
“I still don’t know what Kyle was going to do to me in the back of the car — kill me, strangle me,” Kim, 46, tells US of the blow-up, during which Kyle accused her of being an alcoholic, while she screamed that Kyle stole her house.
“I just wanted you (Kim) to shut up,” Kyle, 42 explains of the incident. “You wanted me to shut up, but you were doing all the talking,” argued Kim before thinking better of it. “Won’t go there. If you hold on to the negative, it brings you down. It definitely took it’s toll on us.”
Kyle insists the experience has made them both stronger. “Kim and I went through a hard time last season, but I really do feel that even though we had that argument we’re in such a good place now,” she states. “Maybe some good came out of it. We both grew and learned from it.”
Kim is more reserved simply stating their relationship is a “work in progress,” adding they’re still putting the pieces back in place. More photos of Kim & Kyle hosting the event below.

The latest involves Kim Kardashian of course following the release of a Turkish Cosmopolitan Magazine cover featuring her. The problem? Kim is Armenian and the Turks committed genocide against the Armenian people nearly 100 years ago, and still refuse to acknowledge it.
Plus the magazine did not get Kim’s permission before splashing her on the Turk cover at a time that coincides with the Genocide Remembrance Day, which commemorates the victims of the 1915 Armenian genocide.
TMZ adds that Kim was completely unaware she was on the Turkish cover until they did a story about it yesterday. Sources tell TMZ that Kim was very upset and would never have approved the use of her photo in the Turkish version.

A new TMZ report today states Kim and Cosmo have kissed and made up already with a new photo shoot already in the works, that could take place as early as this week. Sources however make it clear Kim really struggled with her decision to work with Cosmo again because even though she has an “amazing relationship” with the mag, she’s very passionate about her Armenian heritage.

I love taping. I just didn’t want to put Lamar through that pressure and Lamar was like, ‘let’s do it.'”

Following Nene’s latest shameful display on Celebrity Apprentice during which she verbally attackedLa Toya Jackson for no good reason at all, Star is now speaking out against the Nene once again.
In a new interview with Popeater, Star tells the site “you never get involved in a pig fight,” when asked about Nene. “If you do, three things happen: you get dirty, you get tired, and only the pig has fun. It diminishes me to talk about her. I have so many other things going on in my life.”
And when it comes to her upcoming fight with Nene on the show, Star reveals she had to restrain herself from really going off. “In my heart, I think ‘pray, don’t act crazy, your grandmother is watching, your sorority sisters are watching, you were raised better than this,'” states Star.
Star, who recently released her book Satan’s Sisters, then takes the ultimate swipe at the Nene, referencing her past as a stripper. “I know there are people that value my opinion,” says Star about wanting to set a good example. “Plus, I’m not 20 minutes off the pole.” Ouch!
In other Nene news, RadarOnline is reporting she badly wants her own show. Apparently, Nene wants her own spin-off show a la Bethenny Frankel, or a talk show a la Oprah Winfrey.
“Nene is actively shopping herself around and she wants her own chat show and if that does not happen she would like her own reality show instead,” says a source. “She was encouraged when she did some slots with local television stations in Atlanta and she thinks that she has what it takes to be the next Oprah or Wendy Williams.”
The Nene has reportedly had talks with Bravo and VH-1 about getting her own show though a recent report states she and her Real Housewives of Atlantacostars have signed on to return for another season.

It was classical night on Dancing With The Stars Monday as the stars had to groove to classical music courtesy of a 46-piece orchestra.
The dances of the night were the paso doble, waltz or Viennese waltz. And with a few weeks into the show, it seems the top spot continues to be up for grabs as a new star led the leaderboard for the 3rd consecutive week.
In her taped package, Disney starlet Chelsea Kane made it clear she wanted to break away from the rest of the pack and that she did. Chelsea got the highest score of the night, a 26 for her “beautiful” Viennese Waltz with partner Mark Ballas. “It was magical, fabulous, beautiful and bewitching,” said Bruno, “and technically speaking, it was the best dance of the night.”
Coming close to Chelsea’s score were Hines Ward and Ralph Macchio, both earning a score of 25 for their dances. Hines continued to emerge as an early favorite with his explosive paso doble. “You’re really doing great,” said Len. Also earning rave reviews from the judges was Ralph, who also danced the Viennese Waltz.
Kirstie Alley continued to fall to the bottom of the pack despite getting a solid score of 22 for her elegant waltz which earned her a standing ovation. Kirstie, who complained of a hip injury, suffered another mishap for the second week in a row when her shoe came off during a dance move. Kirstie still managed to receive praises from the judges. “You didn’t miss a beat,” said Carrie Ann with Bruno adding she did “amazingly well.”
Kendra Wilkinson continued to disappoint after being declared the favorite to win the show before the premiere. With a score of 18 for her messy Viennese waltz, Kendra is at the bottom of the scoreboard, in serious danger of going home tonight.
The scores from last night below:
Chelsea Kane & Mark Ballas: 26 Hines Ward & Kym Johnson: 25 Ralph Macchio & Karina Smirnoff: 25 Chris Jericho & Cheryl Burke: 23 Petra Nemcova & Dmitry Chaplin: 23 Romeo & Chelsie Hightower: 23 Kirstie Alley & Maksim Chmerkovskiy: 22 Sugar Ray Leonard & Anna Trebunskaya: 21 Kendra Wilkinson & Louis Van Amstel: 18

A new episode of the Real Housewives of Orange County aired last night on Bravo bringing us some fake boobs & faker friendships, a “sexy” Spain vacation, a filler vow renewal ceremony, and most importantly some excellent evidence footage for certain Coto employees, just in case they ever decide to file a certain sexual harassment lawsuit.
The episode begins with Vicki taking some time out of her very busy work schedule to go on a boat ride with Donn and the kids. And no she didn’t bring her laptop, believe me – I was looking for it. But unfortunately for Vicki’s family, fun Vicki is only reserved for her helpless employees as she is more of a Debbie Downer on the boat.

Meanwhile, following the debut of Bravo’s new show Pregnant In Heels in which Rosie Pope, a maternity concierge caters to the affluent, Jill Zarin had a critique of her own. “Watching Preg in Heels. Is she deaf or have speech impediment? I can’t understand her. Does anyone else notice that? Or is it just me?” tweeted a renewed Jill.
