The Real Housewives of New York S10 ep11 “Bobby Zarin loved”


Related image

If you’ve been long term fan of New York, you went through a box of tissues last night.    Jill and Bobby Zarin was a love story.  There are other housewives who’s marriages were longer, Lisa and Ken (36 years) and Kyle and Mauricio’s (22 years) in Beverly Hills.  But this was a love story.

I had a love and hate relationship with Jill Zarin, who was the resident queen bee in New York during its first four seasons.  It was Jill, who recommended Bethenny for the show. At the time Bethenny, wasn’t a housewife, and was financially, several levels below the other housewives.

Bethenny, and Jill’s friendship was as strong as steel, then one day it badly broken and  Bethenny was dismissed from the kingdom.    Bethenny was broken, Jill was not only her friend but she was somewhat of a mother figure to Bethenny.    Bobby loved Bethenny and wanted Jill to repair the relationship.   When Jill tried to re-connect with Bethenny, the damage was done, and Bethenny didn’t want to be hurt again.   Bethenny didn’t return for the the fourth season.

At one point, Jill, seemed larger than the show and love the attention she was getting off camera.  It is rumored the Queen bee started making demands, salary, filming demands and Bravo fired her.  Not just Jill.  2011 was a blood bath, Zarin and three other New York Housewives were fired.

Jill Zarin is lovely and personable but she can turn like a viper.  Bobby softened her ,loved and supported her.  His tone was always gentle, even at the worst of times.  The funeral was the first time Jill and Bethenny were face to face in six years Real Housewives Of New York Recap: Faux Weddings And A Funeral

Ramona told Dorinda she visited Bobby in the hospital as soon as she found out he was sick again.   Dorinda said that losing Bobby was a loss to the world.  When Sonja told Bethenny Bobby had died, she charted a plane to attend the funeral. Luann (in a rehab in Florida) told Bethenny on the phone, she visited Bobby during his last days in hospice.

On the phone from rehab, Luann tells Bethenny how scared and alone she felt spending New Years Eve in Treatment.  She feels its where needs to be and knows her life needs to change.  Its the first time Bethenny has heard Luann cry.

Tinsley’s mother Dale bring her a bill from the freezer, where her eggs are stored.  They get emotional over some grainy ass  pictures of the frozen eggs. (my babies! my babies!)

Back 2 LIFE ( It think?)

I admit, I get a kick of Dale and Tinsley together, they seem to enjoy each other.   Their delusion is mystifying.  Tinsley at 42 .want a marriage stat!  She wants babies, soon-stat!  Mommy wants her to have what she wants to be happy and right now happiness is da boyfriend Scott.    The two of them go shopping for wedding dresses.   Okay, yes I’m a guy, but the ladies seem (how to I put this gently) a bit seasoned to be so giddy going to a wedding shop.  I could see this with a younger daughter, a first time wedding.  But these two have done this already.  And whats worse, is Scott doesn’t know, he THINKS HE IS JUST DA BOYFRIEND?  Run, Scott, Run!

I love New York!  Only in New York would you nave “CONBODY” a workout facilty operated by ex-cons where people can work out like prisoners.

Everybody take a fake mugshot and then pushed through a series of exercises.   Luann is missed and the ladies share her incarceration with the ex-cons.   The cons are impressed by what they’ve heard (who wouldn’t be after her Houdini move out of those handcuffs).  Someone wondered if Luann was married?       I think it was Ramona asked how did they think she’d do in court.  One of the con’s asked if she was brown or a woman of color?      ( Thanks to Bravo, we didn’t hear his response)

Last night we saw a softer Bethenny, as she shared her experiences with Sonja.  The repairs are complete and now her townhouse is nearly ready to rent.  Bethenny sits quietly as  Sonja tells her about her expanding business empire which now includes shoes.

Bethenny tells her about sitting shiva at Jill’s house. She brought her daughter Brynn to meet Jill.  The former best friends have a heart to heart and Jill said she regrets her past behavior towards Bethenny.  Bethenny was happy and was hopeful that the closure would lead towards some healing.  But she is not ready to rush into a closer friendship with Jill again, at least not at the moment.   She said she feels like something’s shifting. She’s not as angry anymore and EVEN seeing Ramona at the funeral didn’t make her as murdery as usual. “God, I’m so sentimental ” What happened to me!’

Free At Last

A newly released Luann, (still on the phone) calls Dorinda to talk about the next steps.  These past few years have been a nightmare, and Luann admits she’s been self-medicating to stuff down the emotional turmoil of it all. Dorinda understands, and she’s supportive of her friend’s journey ahead. “I’ve been traveling, I’ve been to prison,” says Luann, and now she totally intends on changing her life.

 

Thoughts???? Are Carole and Bethenny on the mend?  Will Scott bolt from Tinsley?  

Sending Prayers out to Gregg Leakes

Big city fella, Born and Raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. Lived in New York (a part time New Yorker) for three years . I have lived in the Sacramento area since 1993. When I first moved here, I hated it. Initially found the city too conservative for my tastes. A great place to raise children however too few options for adults . The city has grown up, there is much to do here. The city suffers from low self esteem in my opinion, locals have few positive words to say about their hometown. visitors and transplants are amazed at what they find here. From, the grand old homes in Alkali Flats, and the huge trees in midtown, there are many surprises in Sacramento. Theater is alive is this area . And finally ,there is a nightlife... In.downtown midtown, for the young and not so young. My Criticism is with local government. There is a shortage of visionaries in city hall. Sacramento has long relied on the state, feds and real estate for revenue. Like many cities in America,Downtown Sacramento was the hub of activity in the area. as the population moved to the suburbs and retail followed. The city has spent millions to revive downtown. Today less than ten thousand people live downtown. No one at city hall could connect the dots. Population-Retail. Business says Sacramento is challenging and many corporations have chosen to set up operations outside the cities limits. There is vision in the burbs. Sacramento has bones, there are many good pieces here, leaders seem unable or unwilling to put those pieces together into. Rant aside, I love it here. From the trees to the rivers. But its the people here that move me. Sacramento is one of the most integrated cities in America. I find I'm welcome everywhere. The spices work in this city of nearly 500,000 and for the most part these spices blend well together. From Ukrainians to Hispanics and a sizable gay community, all the spices seem to work well here. I frequently travel and occasionally I will venture into a city with huge racial borders, where its unsafe to visit after certain hours. I haven't found it here. I cant imagine living in a community where there is one hue or one spice. I love the big trees, Temple Coffee House, the Alhambra Safeway, Zelda's Pizza, Bicyclist in Midtown, The Mother Lode Saloon, Crest Theater, and the Rivers. I could go on and I might. Sacramento is home.
