Ok, Ok… my cynical heart has slightly thawed because this is the most hilariously fabulous thing I've ever seen. LuAnn de Lesseps has some serious competition in the outrageously ridiculous Housewives music video department in the form of Kenya Moore!
"You can't fake emotions," Kenya maintains. "If he was playing games, I wasn't playing games." Uh huh – I think actresses can and do fake emotions all the time, and doesn't Kenya fancy herself an actress?
And after she did that talking bit that we all don't care about, Kenya did the for real important thing and that was to perform LIVE! Yes, LIVE! her new song "Gone With The Wind Fabulous." Is anyone else failing to see what exactly is so fabulous about GWTW? Has Kenya seen the movie? Read the book?
If you recall Jenni has a book in the works that discusses dealing with difficult bosses and workplace dramas, among other things. Jeff requested a copy of the manuscript from Jenni's publishing house and was denied. He since filed a suit to stop the publication.
As always Jeff was completely blunt. He said his attorney didn't want him discussing the matter, but oh well! "I'm still in a state of disbelief over this whole thing," Jeff said. "It was a last resort. I tried to work out every possible reconciliation."
He believes he was forced to file the suit after trying repeatedly to negotiate with Jenni over the content. "A book was written without my knowledge," Jeff said. He maintains that he encourages Jenni to pursue opportunities outside of the show but he needs to protect the confidentiality of his clients and his business.
In the beginning there was a housewives franchise for any given night of the week, and then, there was Watch What Happens Live. I must admit I was beside myself when Andy Cohen decided to make his fete a nightly deal. I guess I overestimated the amount of guests who would entertain me in the clubhouse. I don't care about has-beens or random current reality stars that know nothing of all things Bravo. I want dish and dirt and a worthy jackhole.
Ask and ye shall receive. My Monday night WWHL was everything I like to see happening in the clubhouse. Real Housewives of Beverly Hills'Taylor Armstrong was present to clear up any rumors that she needed and intervention, and, I'll be honest, as much as I dislike her on the show, she was pretty funny and self-depreciating with ol' Andy. Joining her was The Hills'Kristin Cavalarri who looked fabulous after just having a baby boy. MTV's resident bitch was likeable and (dare I say it?) hilarious during her debut night in the clubhouse.
Jill'sWatch What Happens Live segment exposed a woman who has still not recovered from incidents from over four years ago – including how she felt she was misrepresented on RHONY. Apparently Jill wasn't about to let that happen again and someone from her entourage who was in the audience during the pre-recorded WWHL taping secretly filmed the entire interview. And Jill admits it!
I, of course, watched – tornados transporting me to Oz couldn't keep me away – and here's my thoughts on what happened. First of all I was sort of surprised Andy let Jill go so far with some of her allegations. It wasn't live, it was pre-recorded so the network definitely let her air ALL her grievances and expose what I thought was some pretty scandalous things about how filming works and behind the scenes dealings.
Secondly, Jill was either nervous or I don't know what but she rambled and ranted tangentially for the entire segment. Andy barely got a word in and he was checked out, although composed (and bemused), in a way I've never seen him act before. Jill of course basically complained that she was fired, whined it wasn't fair, and insisted viewers want her back and didn't connect with the new women because we don't know them. She actually said viewers were boycotting her firing – and Alex McCord's.
Oh you few fans of Jill Zarin – it's a happy day! And you many detractors, many apologies for the news I am about to report. Jill Zarin will finally get her day in the sun! Jill will return to Bravo for one night only in an appearance on Watch What Happens Live where Andy Cohen will interview the notorious redhead about being fired! You know you'll be watching. I will be!
Next Monday, Jill will finally get some PR approved answers for why she was fired from Real Housewives of New York! “I feel like they killed me off and I didn’t get to say goodbye,” Jill confides to the NY Daily News.
“I’m really grateful even though it’s 15 months overdue,” she shares. “I’m going to ask him why I was fired.” Jill admits she's ready to let go, but she still has some questions.
Most specifically what led to the mass lay-offs. Jill reveals she's been told "poor focus group testing" for the fourth season reunion of the show was the main reason behind the network's decision. However, Jill blames poor editing for the very negative direction that season took.
