Real Housewives of New York

nyc-week-9

As this season of the Real Housewives of New York City moves along, it becomes more and more obvious that Jill Zarin is the “source” who leaked this story and this story to the press. The first story is the infamous Bethenny is friendless story and the second one is the story that came out earlier this year about Alex and Simon possibly being cut from the show.

Moving right along to this week’s recap -

Bethenny – I blogged about her pregnancy leak last year and thought it was very wrong for Perez Hilton to leak the story, especially considering her age amongst other factors. I mean the woman was only 8 weeks pregnant for goodness sakes. Her reaction and Jason’s reaction seemed genuine and understandable. And a lot of people are now asking how could this have leaked to Perez? Well for one, there are usually 6 – 10 production people involved in the filming of each scene for the show, and considering Bethenny filmed her pregnancy test just weeks earlier, the possibilities of the leak are endless. Plus in Perez’s story, he claimed Bethenny was in talks with UsWeekly magazine to announce her pregnancy with them at the three month mark. My guess is someone from UsWeekly leaked that info to Perez. But I loved Jason in this episode, he seems like a stand up man, and perfect for Bethenny.

Next we see LuAnn, Sonja and Jill engage in a conversation about Bethenny and party planning, during which Jill informs us she has a google alert on herself. For some reason, I am not surprised. By the way google alerts is something that alerts you whenever a story is written about someone, a show etc. Jill, the gossip queen that she is, seems more concerned about the gossip factor than the actual news about Bethenny’s pregnancy. And you have to love her dig about LuAnn’s evite invitations not being up to par. LuAnn also informs us that Bethenny blocked her from twitter, which is a bit petty in my opinion for Bethenny to do that, if she did. Was a bit surprised about this as it doesn’t seem like Bethenny’s M.O.

We then get a brief view of new housewife Jennifer Gilbert during a meeting with Jill, and umm yeah, with Jill doing most of the talking, we will have to wait until the next episode to learn anything about Jennifer. Sonja is starting to grow on me, she seemed a bit more interesting in this episode, as she showed us there’s more to her than just talking about sex. Taking Ramona along with her to the plastic surgeon’s office was probably not necessary and just done for good tv. Her scene with her physic during ,which she got emotional when talking about her former marriage, was a however good scene. Great to see another dimension to her.

And then we have the phone call between Alex and Bethenny, during which Bethenny confirms her pregnancy news. And Bethenny informs Alex that Jill sent her an email on how to handle the rumor. Just like Jill, to want to involve herself in the “scandal” as a means to get press/publicity for herself. Anyone remember last summer when Jill started hanging out with Jon Gosselin and Michael Lohan, and even began speaking to the press on behalf of Jon? Enough said. Bethenny was fortunately able to see through Jill’s very transparent colors.

Bethenny then makes the error of casually informing Alex that she could tell Jill she’s done with the friendship if she sees Jill talking about the pregnancy news. Alex, who ofcourse has a score to settle with Jill couldn’t be happier to deliver the message. We then get to Ramona’s event with Jill, Kelly, and LuAnn in attendance. Jill informs us she plans on taking the high road, and will not ruin Ramona’s event like Ramona did her Kodak event. Seconds after saying this, we see Jill saying there’s no need for any more skin care lines in the world and then proceeds to trash the food at the event. Oh yeah, did I mention Ramona’s event was to promote her new skin care line? Nice to see Jill being the “bigger person” on this one.

We are on to week 9 of the Real Housewives of New York City.

In tonight’s episode, Bethenny Frankel’s pregnancy is leaked all across the internet thanks to blogger Perez Hilton, and she is forced to confront her fiancé , Jason Hoppy, with the news. We get to see the reaction of a press-shy Jason, as well as the reaction of the other housewives. A video preview of this is below.

On the other side of town, we get some more new blood this week when Jennifer Gilbert makes her debut as a part of the group. Meanwhile, when Sonja enlists Ramona to accompany her to a plastic surgeon consultation, the ever appropriate Ramona does not hold back in grilling the doctor about his credibility. And finally tonight, we get to see the big confrontation between Jill and Alex.

Below is the preview of Bethenny telling her fiance about her pregnancy leak -


TELL US: WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE PREVIEW AND TONIGHT’S EPISODE?

Bethenny Frankel

Bravo has finally announced the premiere date for Bethenny Frankel’s new upcoming reality show – Bethenny Getting Married?

Bethenny, who is currently starring on the Real Housewives of New York City, will have her show debut Thursday, June 10 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on the Bravo network.

The new show will follow the 39-year-old natural foods chef/author and her then fiancee Jason Hoppy as they prepare for their wedding, parenthood and moving in together.

Also starring on the show will be Julie Plake, Bethenny’s assistant who helps keep track of her business and personal endeavors, and Max Meisel, Bethenny’s intern who is often the butt of Bethenny’s jokes. Bethenny’s dog Cookie will also make some cameo appearances on the show.

And despite widespread reports that Bethenny is in talks to appear alongside Sara Gilbert, Julie Chen, and Lisa Rinna on a new CBS daytime talk show similar to The View, CBS has denied neither Bethenny nor Lisa is involved with the new show.

Countess LuAnn Song Cover

There seems to be something about having cameras around that makes certain people just want to make absolute asses fools of themselves. Case in point, Countess LuAnn De Lesseps of the Real Housewives of New York City, has decided to give Kim Zolciak some competition. For some reason, LuAnn has decided to embark on a music career despite being completely tone deaf and lacking any musical talent.

LuAnn’s first single, “Money Can’t Buy You Class,hit the internet yesterday and in a new interview with PEOPLE today, LuAnn reveals she is shooting a music video for her song. A photo from her video shoot is below.

According to LuAnn, she is simply “trying to bring manners — and disco — back.” She tells PEOPLE. “When I made the song, I had dancing in Saint-Tropez in mind.”

And what does she think of the preview video Bravo has released showing her singing very off key? “I think [Bravo VP] Andy Cohen was mean to show a clip of me singing off key, but I’m a reality star; I don’t have the luxury that Beyoncé does to not show that footage.” Right LuAnn, because we’re all certain Beyonce sounds a lot like you in the studio and requires autotune to sound decent on a record.



Listen to “Money Can’t Buy You Class”

In the video, which has yet to be released, LuAnn can be seen rocking long hair (thanks to extensions) for the first time in 20 years. “There’s not really dancing,” she says of the video. “I just have very good looking men standing around. And it’s about how money can’t buy you class, so I’m taking money out of their pockets and throwing it onto the floor.”

And we haven’t heard the last of LuAnn, her next single, “Chic, c’est la vie,” is set to be released in early May.

This recap was written on Friday evening, I then decided not to post it because it was too late in the day. Then decided on Saturday I should just scrap it all together, then decided on Sunday that I should probably post it since it’s already been written, and now it’s Monday and what the hay! So below is the recap, hope you enjoy.

And just like that, we are midway through the third season of the Real Housewives of New York City. Last night’s episode was interesting but the best part Bethenny Frankel’s appearance on Bravo’s was Watch What Happens.

We started off last night’s episode with a little TMI involving Jill Zarin and her sick dog. Moving right along to Bethenny visiting Alex, and sharing her engagement news with her. Bethenny reveals Alex is the first person she’s telling, and plans on telling all the other housewives at a later date. It’s nice to see a genuine friendship developing between Alex and Bethenny, who would have thought? Who would have guessed? That’s the great thing about the housewives’ series, you never know what’s next to come.

Next up is a get together between the single women on the show, we get to see the Countess, Kelly and new housewife Samantha from Sex & the City Sonja Morgan meet up for drinks. Interestingly enough, all three of these women married much older rich men, and all three are still holding on to their last names. Sonja does what she does best, which is to blab about sex. Kelly attempts to downplay her past relationship with male gigolo Max, which is interesting considering she spent all of last season flaunting him around. I’m still on the fence about the addition of Sonja. Perhaps its because this season has been very interesting thus far, but I’m not really seeing what she adds. When you think about it, Bethenny, Ramona, Jill, Kelly, and even Alex are all one of a kind. I mean really, have you ever come across anyone like Ramona? The answer is likely no, but Sonja doesn’t seem to have that unique factor. Anyone who’s seen an episode of Sex & the City, knows this woman is a Samantha wannabe.

And how cute and funny was Kelly’s daughter when she decided not to talk to the cameras, but rather write down what was happening. Very cute scene.

The big event of the night came towards the end of the episode at Kelly’s event for Gotham magazine. For some reason, some of the ladies (Bethenny, Kelly and Alex) decided this was the night to sport their shortest attires. Bethenny’s one liner about what the ladies had on was priceless. “This was the party evidently that we were all told to wear a square of toilet paper and make an outfit out of it. I mean I literally, I didn’t have a top on, Kelly’s vagina was hanging out. Alex’s ass cheeks. Literally, it was like a yard sale of body parts,” said Bethenny. Seriously, it must be hard for one to hate Bethenny because love her or hate her, she will make you laugh!

Jill Zarin Book

So what’s a Bravo housewife to do when you find yourself the most hated housewife in Bravo history and your new book is being plagued by bad reviews online? Well, if you’re Jill Zarin of the Real Housewives of New York City, you log into your amazon.com account, change your name to Susan Saunders, and start leaving good reviews for your book. Unfortunately for Jill/Susan, she has been caught red handed by Gawker.com.

To make things worse for Jill, there is photographic evidence. According to Gawker, it all started when Jill someone going by the name of Susan Saunders decided to reply to a negative review. What Jill/Susan wrote is below courtesy of Zap2it -

JIll-Zarin-as-Susan-Saunders

This made some suspicious, and they decided to investigate by clicking on Susan’s amazon account profile, and low and behold, it turns out Susan Saunders’ Amazon.com account belongs to a certain Jill Shapiro. For those out of the loop, Jill Shapiro was Jill’s former name before marrying current husband Bobby Zarin. Jill’s daughter is named Allyson Paige Shapiro.

JIll-Zarin-as-Susan-Saunders-wish-lisrtYou might perhaps be thinking, that account might belong to another Jill Shapiro that isn’t our Jill. Fortunately that theory can be Debunked as this Jill Shapiro forgot to delete her wish list which includes items for a certain Bobby Zarin and a certain Allyson Shapiro. To make matters worse, when you visit Susan’s amazon profile, it shows her only amazon buddy as being David Zarin, who just happens to be Bobby’s brother. And oh yeah, Jill’s date of birth just happens to be November 30th as listed above.

Jill took to her facebook yesterday, accusing a crazed fan of making up the account. “Some crazy fans are saying I wrote my own review. I love the book, of course. People in my life have written wonderful things about the book. Some fans of the show need to find something else to do then write hateful things about me and my family. It is sad and I feel sorry for them. If you read the book and liked it, …please write positive reviews. Thank you for all the support!”

Gawker, a reputable news outlet, broke the story, not some crazy fans. And to Debunk the theory that a crazy fan might have made up this amazon account to frame Jill, it would be 100% impossible as Susan Sauders/Jill Shapiro’s account shows items were added to her wish list during 2001 for her daughter Allyson. Way before anyone knew who Jill was. A screenshot of that is below -

Sonja Morgan of Real Housewives of New York City

Coming off a very emotional episode last week, things seemed to take a calmer turn on this episode of the Real Housewives of New York City, as we got to meet the newest cougar housewife on the block, Sonja Morgan. More on her later.

On to this week’s recap, not much to write about so this will be brief. Will however touch on Jill Zarin’s appearance on Watch What Happens last night.

Ramona - Once again, we had another Ramonattack. Someone needs to let Ramona know her meds are meant to be taken daily, and not just when she feels like it. Her walk on the runway was simply priceless, and all the more surprising considering how serious she took it. Her comments to Jill at Jill’s event was unnecessary and uncalled for. It was absolutely the wrong time and place. She definitely needs a filter.

Kelly – I think I’m starting to see the issue with Kelly. She came on this season trying to be the fun and happy Kelly, which is making her appear rather inauthentic and weird. Her attempt to take Simon shopping and dress him, umm a bit weird. She’s more interesting when she’s being a real human being, such as during her argument with Ramona. And then we got the old Kelly back when she decided to mock Ramona in a elementary like tone after she walked away, really what person over the age of 10 does that?. Overall, I think I’m starting to get Kelly. She’s one of those people who simply lacks depth. She’s that person who can only be an acquaintance, and never a close friend because there simply isn’t much to her.

Bethenny – It was good to see Bethenny dealing well with her dad not wanting to see her. Not much on Bethenny this week, but did we really need to see her sitting on the toilet? Way TMI. Bethenny should have closed the door, and Bravo should have left that part out.

Jill – The mean Jill reared its ugly head once again on last night’s episode, making a lot of snarky remarks. However, her appearance on Watch What Happens was a must see last night. Seeing her talk in circles, make up excuses, all while being defensive was interesting to watch. According to Jill, the reason she was so cold to Bethenny was because she wanted them to make up off camera. Really Jill??? Can someone remind this woman that she is on a reality show that showcases her personal life and relationships? All of the things to not want on TV, why would making up with a friend be one of them? Yeah, it made no sense to me either.

Jill Zarin continues her redemption tour. The Real Housewives of New York City star did a chat with gawker during which she dished out advice to fans in an attempt to promote her new book, Secrets of a Jewish Mother .

When asked if she wishes she had handled her fight with Bethenny Frankel differently, she answered, “”I think I was out of my mind … Bobby, empty nest thoughts, and private matters. I am embarrassed.”

Jill also held a release party for her new book Wednesday night and she revealed she invited all the NYC housewives in an attempt to try to get them on Team Jill, no just kidding! She didn’t say that ofcouse, our Jill would never do such a thing! She did however reveal that she invited Bethenny as well, who as expected did not show up. In attendance were Kelly, new housewife Jennifer Gilbert, and Luann as pictured above. Also in attendance was Ramona. Bethenny however did show up to Alex and Simon’s book signing last week for their new book, Little Kids, Bit City. Photos from that are below.

When asked if she would like to be friends with Bethenny again, “Of course I would,” answered Jill, also telling Hollywoodlife, “I’ve already said sorry many times” to Bethenny! Wonder if that sorry came before or after the recent backlash, especially taking into consideration the fact that she referred to Bethenny’s wedding as being “circus-like” just two weeks ago.

You be the judge of whether or not she is sincere. Moving right along to tonight’s new episode of the NYC Housewives. We finally get to meet one of the two new housewives tonight as Sonja Morgan makes her debut on the show. Sonja, 45, is a single mom of one, and the ex-wife of John Adams Morgan, the great-grandson of financier JP Morgan. Sonja is said to be good friends with the Countess and Ramona.

Sonja is also described as being a fan of shopping, sex, & plastic surgery. Sonja doesn’t apologize for living life on her terms. Meanwhile, Ramona has a surprise for Mario when she prepares a romantic setting at home to propose that they renew their wedding vows. And, LuAnn meets up with Jill to divulge about a potential new suitor in her life.
