Hell hath no fury like a Housewife divorced? Last season Bethenny Frankel tearfully exposed Luann de Lesseps‘ fiancé of one minute of cheating, but Luann scoffs that was just Bethenny “projecting her own failed marriage” onto Luann’s perfect, amazing, super blissful, fabulous, happiness! Don’t F–K with A Lu In Love, y’all!
So, like, Luann is projecting her self-described perfect happiness onto Bethenny’s scorn, to cover-up that maybe TomD’Agostino Jr. is actually a cheater, while Bethenny is simultaneously projecting her belief that marriages fail onto Luann’s insistence that marriages work. Does that make sense to anyone? No – it doesn’t, but I need a side-job writing Housewives-related questions for the SAT Test.
Jill posted the following question on her facebook fanpage last night, “So..what do you do when you have a fight with a friend..and you don’t want to make up yet…then when your ready they don’t want to?” It’s easy to figure out she’s referring to Bethenny, whom she coldly turned away time after time during her reconciliation attempts on the show.
Bethenny has however made it clear she does not wish to reconcile with Jill, saying, “there is no hope of reconciliation,” while adding “I don’t want the toxicity in my life.” Can you blame her?
The question now seems to be is Jill even sincere? Not since the backlash against Nene Leakes of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, has a Bravo housewife received so much backlash and negative comments from fans. A Bravo poll even showed 97% of the fans are against Jill. And unfortunately for Jill, the timing could not be worse as she now has a new book to promote, “Secrets of a Jewish Mother: Real Advice, Real Stories, Real Love.”
With majority of the fans against her, it will prove rather difficult to peddle her new book. Just ask Nene, who only sold 9000 copies of her autobiography last year.
Just how bad is it for Jill? Well after last week’s episode, she received a lot of negative tweets on twitter, and we mean A LOT. And she continues to spend her time deleting hate mail on her facebook page. Jill who typically loves the press has stayed away from doing any press this week, despite having a book to promote. She has also yet to write a blog for Bravo this week, perhaps fearing more negative comments from fans.
Jill is however scheduled to appear on Bravo’s talk show – Watch What Happens this Thursday. That will be a must see episode as the show typically takes calls from viewers and even reads their online messages to the guests.
Interestingly enough, Jill gave the following advice to Kelly Bensimon last year, who at the time was getting a ton of backlash from the fans and the press.
“I don’t think it’s working for her,” said Jill. “I don’t think she should be on the show. It’s not that I think we should throw anybody off, it’s just that I think if I were her, I would not do the show again. I would go back to anonymity and spend the next year trying to repair my reputation. What’s more important to her: her reputation or fame?”
Dear Jill, perhaps it’s time for you to take your own advice. Sincerely, Reality Tea.
TELL US – DO YOU THINK JILL IS SINCERE IN WANTING TO FIX HER FRIENDSHIP WITH BETHENNY?
Bethenny, who is now 7 months pregnant, spoke to UsWeekly and revealed she has no regrets when it comes to her words and actions regarding Jill.
“I don’t regret anything I’ve said,” she told UsWeekly Tuesday at the NYC premiere of The Bounty Hunter. “If she’s saying that I told her she needs to get a hobby, then that’s accurate. That’s what I said. I don’t regret anything I’ve said.”
So will two will ever reconcile? “I tried to establish relationships under a microscope and it didn’t work,” Frankel explains. “Most of my friends I’ve had for 20 years, so meeting all the housewives and trying to form lasting relationships is challenging.” As for Jill, “That one is no exception.”
When asked who was the better singer between her fellow housewives — Kim Zolciak and LuAnn De Lesseps — Bethenny shared, “I think LuAnn is a better singer but Kim is a better performer. Kim is so fiery. She really puts on a show. Their styles are different. We’ll see if LuAnn blossoms with it.”
Thoughts – Last night’s episode was pretty good. While I’m not particularly Team anyone when it comes to Bethenny and Jill, I do think it was very telling that Jill would save Bethenny’s voicemail and play it for others, especially three months after the fact. That said a lot about her in my opinion.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON JILL AND BETHENNY’S FEUD? ARE YOU TEAM JILL OR TEAM BETHENNY?
There have been rumors that BFFs Jill Zarin and Bethenny Frankel were on the outs, and Bethenny now seems to be confirming these rumors with her recent comments.
Bethenny had some harsh words for herReal Housewives of New York City castmate, calling her recent actions “utterly embarrassing.” Those recent actions include Jill’s public outings with the likes of Jon Gosselin and Michael Lohan.
“Why would Jill be hanging with Jon Gosselin and Michael Lohan?” she asked of Jill’s escapades with the D-List dads in Southampton. “That was like an episode of ‘The Surreal Life.’ It is utterly embarrassing. I mean, honestly, Urkel should have come – and if Gary Coleman showed up, it would have been perfect.”
Bethenny doesn’t stop there. As she stirred up drinks she created in honor of celebs, she snapped “No!” when asked if she created a drink for former BFF Jill, “Jill doesn’t get a drink,” said Bethenny.
This isn’t too surprising as the pair have not been photographed together in recent months. I have also heard stories about Jill becoming too big for her britches. Some are saying she has become a total diva, and a nightmare to be around. I read a story about her pulling the “Do you know who I am” outburst while she was waiting to get served at a restaurant. She seems to truly consider herself a celebrity, and wants to be famous at all cost.
