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.
Is she, isn't she, is she, isn't she? Is this like that game he loves me, he loves me not with the boy in question beingAndy Cohen? Apparently so! For a man who only loves a lady with a sidepony, he certainly has girls of all hair styles throwing themselves his way.
Well, after much speculation, RadarOnline is reportingDanielle was actually meeting with Andy to discuss the possibility of her doing a one-on-one Watch What Happens Live special alaJill Zarin's 'Look, I be crazy' segment. How great would that be?!?
The scariest part of the ordeal is that doctors still don't know what is wrong with Brandi. After suffering from chest pains and finding a benign lump under her arm, there is still no diagnosis for the brash mother of two. While the hospital trip doesn't seem to be slowing Brandi down–she's still going to be on Watch What Happens Live tonight–it still has to be unnerving to have such a health scare.
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!
Oh, Jill. I like to think of my fascination with Jill as the same fascination I have for shows like American Horror Story, meaning they scare me, intrigue me, repulse me, but oh man cannot I not look away! And I love every minute of it!
Apparently many share my bizarre intrigue, because the numbers for WWHL's special Jill vs. Andy one-on-one had over 2 million viewers on Monday night and the ratings were up 44% from the previous Monday's episode. And if y'all don't think Jillzy is going to use those numbers to get back on the show, y'all are surely more delusional than she is!
And go figure just a day after the numbers for the episode are out, come reports that Jill is slated to return to RHONY to enact her revenge, errrr… I mean redeem herself.
Never one to shy away from speaking out, even Bethenny got into the action. In a tweet not directed at anyone, but posted very close to the time Jill's interview aired, Bethenny said:
Yeah, it does amaze me Bethenny. It amazes me every day girl. But hey, delusional people keep me amused. I almost HOPE Jill's diet coke in a special Jillusional wine glass was laced with something to make her act so crazy!
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.
