Kelly Bensimon Humiliated by “Scary Island” Edit – Our Conversation by NMD

Who can forget Kelly Bensimon’s breakdown breakthrough on Season Three of Real Housewives of New York.  While some of the ladies (Bensimon, Sonja Morgan, Bethenny Frankel, Alex McCord and Ramona Singer) were on their season’s trip abroad, Kelly’s erratic behavior caused cast mates to lock their doors, resulted in Kelly being escorted off the private island, and made viewers scratch their heads and start talking about Scary Island.  It was one of the most shocking glimpses into mental illness viewers had been shown on the series at that time.  Later, exploiting mental illness became par for course with Bravo housewife shows – who can forget Taylor Armstrong of the Beverly Hills franchise curled up in a suitcase crying.  But Scary Island set the stage – and became one of those on-screen moments that took on a life of its own.

F174560991

But was it real?

Kelly has never acknowledged the severity of Scary Island.  She’s been in denial ever since she reported the incident to LuAnn de Lesseps (the smartest of the bunch who stayed home) and Jill Zarin (the one who was humiliated by Ramona Singer as she showed up to the island the day after Kelly’s departure only to be turned away because her presence would be too unsettling on the already traumatized cast.)  So it comes as no surprise that Kelly is now claiming that it was all in the editing.  Yesterday, someone tweeted that Scary Episode was the best ever, but in retrospect Kelly needed a doctor, not more alcohol or a camera in her face.

Kelly responded that she had to stop the filming because it was disturbing to see a pregnant woman fight and that she refused to fight with a pregnant 39 yr old woman. “I take pregnancy seriously,” she said.  Viewers will remember that co-star Bethenny Frankel was pregnant at the time of the trip.  That doesn’t explain why the fight went on and on over a period of several days until it culminated in the breakdown / breakthrough dinner.

When I (sarcastically) tweeted back that I’m sure that’s exactly what happened, and someone else replied that it was hard to watch, Kelly replied “it’s harder for me to watch the edit. ”  and later added that she only can comment on what she filmed, not on what was edited and shown to the viewers.  Because that makes perfect sense in a world where Gummie Bears are health food and lemons are made from lemonade.

Now we do know that Bravo editors will play fast and loose with footage, and perhaps there was valid reason for Kelly to spit out phrases like “Al Sharpton, Al Sharpton, or Satchels of Gold,”  or perhaps she really said that Gummie Bears were not natural food but she loved them anyway, and that lemonade is made from lemons and not visa versa.  All of that could be easily edited.  But I don’t think so.  One thing that is for sure, Bethenny has confirmed on twitter that she is a Chef and not a Cook, so we can rest easy on that score.

Kelly did ignore decline my suggestion that she tell us the full story of what went on behind the scenes.  Of course those of us that followed Lynn Hudson’s blog the summer after the season aired will remember that Lynn asked Alex McCord if what we saw was real, and Alex confirmed it was much worse than we saw.  She didn’t mention editing.  And we did see Ramona confront Kelly after the fact and try to get her to acknowledge the problem.  Some day someone will tell us more about what went on – and Kelly will have her own version of the her truth.  Because, as we all know “you can’t handle the truth!”

Note from NMD – after googling for a photo of Scary Island, I found this old blog post of mine from last year – looks like Kelly is on a repeat cycle of denial.  At least she’s consistent.

I was Team Santa

Only 2 of the ladies bothered to blog so I will leave their full blogs in without editing. This will be fine for Dina’s but some will be annoyed with Amber’s.  Get over it. 

So much you didn’t get to see this season, it’s kind of frustrating to explain some things. So I’m not even going to try. What I will say is Teresa and I are allowed to disagree; REAL friends are able to do that and still not go against each other.

Yeah, but it still seems like Dina dances around Tre. Like she doesn’t want to rock the boat too much for fear that Tre will flip a table and it will hit her hairless cat.

I wasn’t team TerEsa over Teresa at any time at all. I was team Santa. Parents and children are off limits, and Victoria should know better. TerEsa just wanted Teresa to apologize for even entertaining the rumor. I just wanted it all to go away. I never said at any time I thought Teresa was in the wrong, what I said VERY clearly is that I understood TerEsa’s position and I would relay the message to Teresa in hopes that this can all be washed away. Not only for the Ladybug event, but for a peaceful interaction between my old friend and a new one. 

I am team Santa, too. I saw that Ms. Gotti took a lie detector to prove that Rino said this horrible comment to her.  She passed.  This does not mean that Rino and Santa did the nasty.  It means that Rina said this.  I do not believe for one minute this happened.  I do believe that Rino said it and Ms. Gotti chose to repeat it for some unknown classless reason.

I still stand by trying to tell the girls in Florida and I did have Teresa’s blessing to let them know if I felt like I needed to. Like she said a million times, she wanted no part of this, she had enough on her plate. She was just letting me know in case Amber twisted things and in case I felt it was necessary to tell them at any point. So I did. I knew Amber was on her way and I knew she would end up having a talk with the girls about the rumor. 

I honestly don’t understand this. I do not think Amber was ever going to say anything.  Jim, however, was the loose cannon on this trip.

I will always choose doing the right thing, even if it’s not the popular thing. Karma is way more powerful than any human! I promise you that Teresa and I didn’t even bat an eye about all this after that sit down at my kitchen table. It did not affect our friendship for a second.

LIAR LIAR! If my friend spoke to me the way Tre spoke to Dina, I would be livid.  It’s just that simple.

I want you fans to know that Teresa is so appreciative of your prayers for her and her family right now. You guys are so loyal, and it really is so touching…I will even take some heat if you’re mad at me for relaying the apology message, LOL! It’s amazing to see how you guys go to bat for her — very cool. 

So stupid.

I made a few videos to explain more about the apology thing, check it out here. Did you guys like my necklaces from this past episode? My beautiful Mama made them! You can get your blessing bracelet and more by messaging her on Twitter. Yes Twitter, my mom is on Twitter @nettielaurita. 

I took away the link to see her videos. If you are dying to see them, go check them out, but I will not feed this fame whore anymore.

Most importantly I do hope that all this Ladybug talk will drum up some donations for the kids. Remember we are an all-volunteer foundation, so any donation is not only tax deductible but it will feel great knowing every dime goes right where it belongs! So check out projectladybug.org and you can make a donation with a click of a button! We so appreciate EVERY donation. Thank you in advance from the kiddies…they love you right back. 

I am always very suspicious of so-called charities. If I was gonna donate to a charity that helped children, I would choose a big name with an amazing reputation.  There was a lot of bad press surrounding Project Ladybug a few years ago and while I am not gonna slander them here, I question Dina’s motives.  Dina sends us a “ton of love” and not me cause of my previous statements.  Hope I don’t get any bad Karma this week!

Why Amber Shares Her Cancer Story

Alright everyone, I am gonna leave Amber’s blog pretty much intact.  This is because she is supporting Breast Cancer Awareness and that is serious business.  Will I remind you to (drink)? Yes.

Hello Housewives friends! I hope all of you are enjoying the month of October. Halloween is a rather big deal in the Marchese home, especially for Isabella. You would think she would be afraid of the zombies, witches, and ghosts, but nope, nothing could be too “scary” or “spooky” for her. All of the boys are super busy with school, lacrosse, and CCD, but we always make family time a huge part of our lives. We truly love our time together and cherish every moment together. Sebastian just celebrated his 12th birthday! He is high honors in school and the sweetest young man, we could not be more proud of him. Not a day goes by that he does not give out a compliment to me and/or a hug. Michael is starting the process of applying to high schools. He is also high honors and he is so much like me in so many ways. We have such an amazing bond. Corbin is doing amazing in school and loves lacrosse. Corbin is my quick-witted stinker. He could seriously charm a snake out of basket just by talking. And Isabella, my sweet Isabella. That little girl just melts my heart. Not a day goes by without her hugging, kissing, and telling me how much she loves me. She is funny, light hearted, and sensitive. Clearly, my side of the family. We are getting ready to take our annual “Sleepy Hollow” trip to see the Great Pumpkin Blaze and Headless Horseman attraction. We have been taking this trip for years and the kids just cannot get enough of it. I will post pictures on my social media. 

<snooze> I know you love your kids.  We all do.

October is also breast cancer awareness month. I would like to thank Bravo for allowing me to share my story. I am completely honored and grateful to have had the ability to film these amazing moments in my life. When I think of where I was just five years ago to now, I am just in complete amazement. I don’t mean to be presumptuous, but if my story encourages even just one person to be proactive with their health, then I have accomplished what I came to do. 

I had no idea October was Breast Cancer (drink) Awareness Month! Holy Crap on Toast!  I agree though if there is one person out there who gets checked because of this awareness then I suppose it is worth hearing about this every week.  My aunt just went for her 5 year test and the bastard that is cancer  (drink) is back.

Screenshot 2014-10-16 16.46.39So, you ask? Why? Why do I share my story? Good question, and I will give you a little background. I was 31-years-old when I noticed lumps. While I was breast feeding my daughter, I found several little lumps in my right breast. Jim encouraged me to get them checked out. Really? Ugh… I am a busy mother, I don’t have time for this! Do you know what kind of pain in the ass it is to drag babies to the doctor?! Besides, I am Sicilian, I am prone to cysts. I was sure it was just cysts, since I had many throughout my twenties. All benign, innocent little cysts. However, I begrudgingly went to my gynecologist. My doctor, to my surprise, was concerned. She did not bring my mind to a bad place, but she insisted that I get an ultrasound. After I received my results, my doctor took one look at the ultrasound results and sent me straight to a surgeon for a biopsy. That surgeon sent me away telling me not to worry about it and that my doctor was being far too overly cautious. He felt that she was creating unnecessary stress and anxiety. Despite this surgeon’s position, amazingly, my doctor insisted that I get a biopsy. Well, I got the biopsy, which came back as “atypical cells,” which then required a lumpectomy for further evaluation. To my absolute horror, the surgeon called me to tell me that had “invasive carcinoma”, AKA breast cancer. 

Being Sicilian and having cystic breasts is a little unknown to me. I have (like many other women) lumpy boobs.  I have undergone 2 lumpectomies; one when I was 20 and another when I was 35.  Thankfully, both were benign.  I cannot imagine how hard it is to hear that one word.  Yes, the very last word in her paragraph (drink).

As you already may know, I went through many surgeries, including a double mastectomy, and a year and half of chemotherapy/adjunctive therapy. I had an aggressive form of breast cancer, so time and aggressive treatment were crucial for me. Fact is, if I would have listened to the surgeon, I would not be here to write this blog to all of you. What you may not know is there are many options for newly diagnosed women with breast cancer. My surgery involved having tissue form my dorsal region transplanted to reconstruct my breasts. There was also skin grafting and tattooing to insure a more natural look. I was pleasantly surprised at my physical appearance post-surgery. My husband and I spent hours researching options for both treatment and reconstruction. My advice to newly diagnosed individuals is to bring a friend, cousin, uncle, wife, husband, whoever to help you take notes on what the doctor is saying. You need someone there to accurately hear through all of the nerves and anxiety. 

(drink)  (drink) I had never seen a woman’s scars post surgery.  I did not know that part of the back is used for reconstruction.  This episode was actually very eye opening to me and I was impressed that she allowed everyone to see the scars…which are beautiful and should be shown with great pride.

After all of my treatment, I had a follow up with my doctor. I asked her, why? Why did she push me so hard to make sure I was properly diagnosed? She told me a story that brought her back to the days of her residency. There was a young girl in her twenties that was dying in the hospital from breast cancer. This young women told my doctor her story. Several years earlier she found a lump, but not one doctor took the lump seriously telling her that she was too young and to go live her life. Unbeknownst to her, she was living with breast cancer and by the time she was diagnosed, it was way into the advanced stages of breast cancer. The young women soon passed on, but her story saved my life. I will never let that young, beautiful woman die in vain without passing her story onto you. So when people dare to say to me, “You talk about cancer too much,” or, “You’re using cancer as a card,” I say to them don’t you dare try to shut me up with your ignorance. As another cancer survivor and friend, Brian Dowd, who works tirelessly with the Livestrong foundation said to me once, “As a survivor, it is your duty to tell your story to potentially save others.” That has been etched in my mind ever since, and I proudly will take those marching orders. 

So, I will leave that paragraph alone. As a survivor of this horrible beast, I think she has the right to use the word as much as she wants (but just in this paragraph, from now on, its game on!)

Screenshot 2014-10-16 16.44.40For me the point of this photo shoot was to capture triumph, strength, and victory. I may have the scars, my breasts will never be the same, but I have never felt more powerful and beautiful in my life. If you would like to see more photos from the shoot, check them out here. I wear these scars with pride, as I have earned them. I was completely surprised by my husband when he planned the dinner at the gallery. It was amazing — three dozen red roses, my pictures on the walls and the paintings — the whole experience was breathtaking. Jim made sure every detail was covered. He had wine glasses with our family crest as well as a wine carafe. He even had a real shield made for us with my family crest married to his. You can see them all here. Jim and I have seen good and bad times in our lives, but we always manage to make sure we show our appreciation towards each other. I give him a solid TEN for romantic nights and for the planning. For me, it is the thought that counts and this was the perfect way for us to celebrate our love for life. If you would like to see a short video of the filming in the barn I have attached the link. I have learned much about myself and my family this season, but no lesson has been more important than how much the little things matter.

I left in the links. If you would like to see the pictures, they truly are beautiful.  I find Amber annoying, but I think she was annoying long before she was diagnosed!  LOL!

Final note, I have been working hard to raise awareness for breast cancer! Here are a couple of events that I attended throughout the month of October. If you want to donate to any of these organizations, I would be more than grateful!

Team NBHN / Team Tackle Jacobi Medical Center, North Central Bronx Hospital

http://www.nyc.gov/html/hhc/jacobi/downloads/pdf/intranet_entries/Team-T…

  1. Brian Wiltz and his soccer team “Think Pink” soccer game raised money for an organization near and dear to my heart, The Beauty Foundation.

http://www.beautyfoundationnj.com

  1. The Think Pink event at the Pueblo Convention Center in Pueblo, CO, on October 2.

The Think Pink event supports diagnostic screenings for under insured and underserved women in Pueblo County, the event encourages Breast cancer awareness for the community and reminds everyone to always get checked. 

  1. I filmed a segment on The Real airing tomorrow, October 17. They dedicated an entire episode to Breast Cancer Awareness month! I hope you check it out!

http://thereal.com/episodes/keeping-it-real-pink-with-amber-marchese/

While I already mentioned I am not a fan of small non-profits, you can choose to do your research and make the decision for yourself. As for me, I have had an order for a mammogram on my fridge for over a year.  I will be scheduling my mammogram this week.  I encourage others to do the same.  Amber thanks us and offers many blessings.

  1. boston02127 says:

    Thankfully someone else is doing the picture captioning. (add text) I hope they don’t blow you off without an explanation.

    • Veena (NMD) says:

      Hi Mrs Boston – your photo captions are always welcome here! I can email you later if you’d like – I’ve got to take my oldest back to university today. Unlike you, he did not graduate in four years. Now that you are officially married, I’m going to give up on the hope that you’ll meet him and end up being my daughter in law, Love you Boston. I want to see wedding photos.

    • Jan (TexasTart) says:

      I never blew you off Boston!!!

      • Veena (NMD) says:

        I think this is related to a chat blog the week I left with a photo that upset Lulu and caused her to leave the group – you weren’t involved at all in any of that. We all know you’ve held this place together while I’ve been off Chasing Rainbows and eating Gummie Bears.

      • boston02127 says:

        TT–Months ago I did post and ask you to email me and never heard back from you, blog or email.

        The reason for that request was to keep it off the blog.

    • Jan (TexasTart) says:

      I would like to say in my defense that in the 7 months I worked on the blog I didn’t have a problem with any of the wonderful people that donate their time so we can have some fun here. And that includes Boston, because I never received any content or emails from her to post. It’s unnecessary this be aired out on the board and I would appreciate we move on to the next subject, put this behind and move forward….unlike a Real Housewife! 😉

  2. Pghemtchick says:

    Well great now I have to find gummi bears! Lol Nice write up on Ms. KooKoo. 🙂
    PS hiyas all. It’s been awhile.

    • Veena (NMD) says:

      Hiya right back atcha! Why don’t you make some lemons to go with the Gummie Bears – or are you a cook and not a chef?

      Are you having a break in sports season’s right now with firstborn? It’s great to see you back!

  3. Veena, I’m LOL at Kelly being consistently in denial. It’s so good to see you blogging again. And thank you again for your posts from your amazing journey these past months.

    • Veena (NMD) says:

      She is really funny, isn’t she! Thank you for reading my travel posts – I have to pinch myself to really believe I was able to be gone for so long. It feels funny to be blogging housewives again – but as long as I stick to the old girls I should be fine. I’m pretty sure I’m not going to watch NJ or OC now that I’ve missed a season – I don’t even know who the new ladies are. The only show I have caught up on is Walking Dead!

  4. Exit4 says:

    Am I the only one who is kind of happy to put NJ to bed? It took such a left turn in Florida. This franchise will never be the same!

    • Jan (TexasTart) says:

      I was pleased they cut it short, it was kind of like being dragged through the mud – like it couldn’t get dirtier! **knock on wood**

  5. Powell says:

    Good afternoon everyone. LOL NMD. Scary Island and w/Halloween just around the corner. 🙂
    Lots of football today. Have a good day everyone. 🏈 🍕🍔🍤🍢🍖🍣

  6. Powell says:

    NMD not a biggie to me and we all know what you mean but you have New Jersey instead of New York in the first sentence about Kelly. 😉

  7. Jan (TexasTart) says:

    Namaste you had me rolling with “Yeah, but it still seems like Dina dances around Tre. Like she doesn’t want to rock the boat too much for fear that Tre will flip a table and it will hit her hairless cat.” ROTFL! Amber kind of threw a curve this week. I hope she she can put it to rest tonight so we don’t have to drink so much! Thanks for the blog and and the funny photos!

    • No problem! It bums me out that they all don’t blog. I really wish they would have given Jac some freedom cause I think she is off her meds again and her blogs would have been a lot of fun!

  8. ladebra says:

    Too soon?

    • Barb (Just wondering in Jersey) says:

      Christmas and cats. Some of my favorite things. Had a couple cats who loved lying under the table tree. One also liked to bite the lights. Fortunately he didn’t get hurt.

      It is too soon though.

  9. Exit4 says:

    There’s a ton of speculation online that after the reunion teresa will be done. I’m not sure-if jersey airs and films like they always do, we’ll see her next season AND season 8, if there is one. If they do it like I think they will-it’ll be a seamless transition and won’t even feel like she “went away” for 15 months or so!

  10. OneMoreInBoston says:

    hi everyone- I’m coming out of lurkerdom as I saw some internet chatter that Dina was tweeting that Lynn deserved to die?

    Here’s part of her tweet that I saw quoted- but didn’t see myself:

    She was an awful blogger w a rotten heart. Never wish death on any1 but she died of a heart attack

    wth Dina?

    anyone else see this?

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I saw it-Dina started a twitter shit storm with that tweet-stupid move on her part! Now she’s busy blocking everyone and their mother!!
      Namaste my ass!!!

      Ps-Hi OMIB!!

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        She tweeted this….

        It’s time for to shut up!!!

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          Lynn did nothing but repeat what she was told by an insider close to Dina (no not Jac) that LadyBugs finances were not what she presented them as.

          smh

        • chismosa says:

          WHOA. Never cared for Dina Downer©®™ and this just MULTIPLIED it

      • Rebecca can't understand why people don't appreciate the importance of dragons. says:

        Dina didn’t start the shitstorm. Someone named Eleanor did and SHES ATTACKING THIS BLOG.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Dina should never have brought up Lynn-she wasn’t mentioned in the tweet-Dina knows exactly what’s she’s doing-…

          • OneMoreInBoston says:

            seemed strange- Lynn wasn’t mentioned but Dina misunderstood so she attacked Lynn.

            hmmm…

            hit a nerve much? I guess Lynn was closer to the truth then we knew?

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              I think this is what happened-someone named Katie posted something on FB-someone took the comment and tweeted it to Dina-it had nothing to do with Lynn so I don’t know how Dina got there? After Dina’s tweet Elenore (who Rebecca mentioned above) jumped in and has been tweeting stuff about Lynn but it’s clear to me that she didn’t know Lynn nor this blog.

          • Rebecca can't understand why people don't appreciate the importance of dragons. says:

            Looks like tweets were deleted that pointed the blame at lynn. All of a sudden this Eleanor started showing up in tweet string.

        • Rebecca can't understand why people don't appreciate the importance of dragons. says:

          Here’s one of her worst today…

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            This Eleanor-idk who she is but she didn’t know Lynn-she got her age wrong and a few other things-I think she’s trying to enter the fray so she just jumped in with nonsense.

          • chismosa says:

            This is so repulsive. Can we just report this chick??? Does she really have that many followers on Twitter ?
            Horrible.

    • Veena (NMD) says:

      Welcome back old friend. Dina really is a POS isn’t she!

  11. chismosa says:

    GOTTI took a lie-detector? Wow- who administered it!?!???

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      allaboutthetea

      I want a recount

    • The lie detector was to find out if she heard this from Rino. That doesn’t really change anything in my book. I think Rino made a horrible tasteless joke, “Yeah, my wife ain’t never gonna take me back cause I banged her mom.” How Ms. Gotti decided it was true is beyond me. ESPECIALLY since Santa is still married to her husband AND her daughters have a beautiful relationship with her.

  12. Mel says:

    out of lurkdom myself….I saws the actual tweet and that is exactly what she said. It was disgusting thing to tweet out. Even if she didn’t like Lynn….that was totally gross of Dina to tweet.

    As Much as I CANNOT stand Jacqueline….I am finally seeing exactly what she is talking about regarding Dina’s fake zen. Right after that tweet…Dina posted something about the deli lama and god is watching blah blah blah. Dina is a piece of work…and i am finally seeing it now and it wasn’t anything that Jacqueline said….it is actually through Dina’s own actions now. What a gross statement to put out there about someone who is no longer here. JUst gross.

    • OneMoreInBoston says:

      hi Mel!
      waving wildly to Jill..no not That Jill…

      gross, and uncalled for. Dina really holds a grudge! meanwhile wasn’t she all buddy with the blogger that did jail time for robbing her blind grandma? Jen?

      ’nuff said

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        OMIB -people are tweeting about the Jenn connection also…Dina opened a can of worms!!

        • OneMoreInBoston says:

          stawp it!

          member that craziness? Jenn is still around, I ran into her blog awhile back- she seems…reformed?

          Dina ditched her but quick too, if she’s not loyal to her fambly- not going to be to a lowly ChiTown blogger

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            She reformed but then went back to her true self…now she does fitness stuff and not so much gossip…she’s always “reinventing” herself after an episode!!

      • Rebecca can't understand why people don't appreciate the importance of dragons. says:

        Bitch blocked me for calling her out on her shit.

  13. chismosa says:

    VV 🔊🔊🔊🔊🔊🔊🔊🔔🔔🔔🔔🔔📣📣📣📣📣📣📣📣

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Where has VV been? We have to practice our 🎾🎾🎾🎾🎾

      • VV™ says:

        I’m staying away from the blog a little. It got too toxic with the sentencing of Teresa. No worries Jill, Tennis season is approaching and I hope Chismo joins us watching RHOBH as well.
        ✌️

        • chismosa says:

          Omg VV I hope we weren’t too cra-cra like Leann/Brandi territory, with regards to Tre 😬

          Please don’t stay away. Miss you mi tesoro! 🎁💝

          And of course, I’m fully committed to BH…… 💩🔥

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Vv-I figured it was the Teresa sentencing that was keeping you away!! I can’t wait for tennis season!! I’m over NJ!!

  14. New England Girl says:

    I’m coming out of lurkdom as well to express my outrage re: that POS Dina. I’ve been reading this blog from the beginning and vaguely remember Lynn talking about Project Ladybug. I didn’t know what she was talking about since I only started watching New Jersey when I found out about Tre’s and Joe’s massive debt. I can’t stand Carolyn, so I was okay with Dina by default. Now I can’t stand her.
    To attack Lynn like that, now, is unbelievable. Zen My Ass.

  15. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Here is the person who posted about Project Ladybug on FB…she’s very confused and has no idea what Dina is talking about

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Yeah, I was wondering how/ why our dear old friend was being lambasted for this person’s tweet. Looks like Dina did one of my very own favorite exercises: she jumped to conclusions.

      • chismosa says:

        LOL @ the exercise ! 🏃🏃🏃
        Lainey are you still in LALA land? Was a detailed fully adjective-laden book report given to us here about S U R !!??????❓❓❓❓❓❗️❗️❗️❗️❗️

        this Dina, really showing her spots. 😏

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Hi Chismosa- Re the SUR REPORT: not yet, mi amor. I go back to Texas tomorrow. I’ll try to do it then! I know jillnntj and Sexy Texy were interested, too! Lol! Love you guys!

  16. chismosa says:

    Just read all the timelines & screenshots—– Dina is DISGUSTING and this Eleanor person has some vendetta since we’re all “nasty” or something

    There are NO WORDS ✋

  17. plainviewsue says:

    No words. Absolutely no words. I have been a Dina supporter. I am sick over this. No matter how she felt about Lynn, how dare she tweet such a disgusting vile tweet. We all know Jacq was Lynn’s source. Apparently, Jac was the source for many bloggers (I just saw this) in her drunken calls to them. But that is over. Our beloved Lynn should not be brought up anyhow, anyway in this matter.

    Lucky us. We now get to watch the finale. I am so upset.

    “LynnNChicago has added to ‘Project Ladybug Woes’ on her site. It has now become a collection of document(s) and screen-shots of bizarre TWITTER messages. People who have made innocent (ok, maybe skeptically innocent) inquiries into the PL (PROJECT LADYBUG) financials have been met with emotionally charged messages, like ‘you are trying to hurt sick children!!!’ to THREATS that they have been reported to ‘authorities’. Lynn’s blog is abuzz with talk of PL today, and one commenter posted a link to a recent newspaper article (August 2010) that boasts donations of $20,000.” – Dina’s Still Being Pestered About PROJECT LADYBUG, September 30, 2010, NJHousewives.blogspot.com

    • I feel as though my teeny tiny little comment in my blog brought this all up today and I AM FREAKING EXCITED! I have poked the bear and am beside myself. I stand by my questioning of this particular charity. There are many many charities out there. In fact, getting a 501c3 these days takes little more than paperwork and a rubber stamp.

  20. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Anyone watching this season finale????

  21. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    They should have filmed me and Exit the day of sentencing!!!!

  22. Exit4 says:

    OMG Jac-shut up!!!!

    Dear All:

    I am very sad for the passing of a very dear and sweet friend from Chicago, amazing wife, mother, Lynn’s close friend as well as mine…

    Our very own “WindyCityWondering”. I have been in touch with her during her fierce fight against Cancer for the last two years. I talked to her on the phone several weeks ago, we were planning a pajamas party… She wanted to finish her guest bedroom …
    Rest in Peace Beautiful Windy, Heaven has now a new Bright Angel watching over us.

    • Lady Chatterley says:

      Oh, Cusi, I’m so sad. Thinking about WCW and Lynn back in the day – friendship, connecting and being supportive despite differences in opinion. Prayers for WCW’s family and friends. Thanks so much for letting us know.

    Oh I’m so sorry. Rest in Peaceful Sleep… 😦

    Ok seriously Carolina is FULL ON shaving her face-with a razor and shaving cream…that’s just weird to do on TV…or anywhere!!!

  27. Powell says:

    Hey I just saw this tweet mentioning LynnNChicago. Anyone know what’s going on? &https://twitter.com/MissAmiaSays/status/524015055609016320

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Look up and you will find the info

    • boston02127 says:

      P….Read Dina Manzo’s tweets. She was harsh regarding Lynn today. People on twitter went crazy on Dina. It’s been going on all day.

    • Rebecca can't understand why people don't appreciate the importance of dragons. says:

      You don’t piss off Miss Amia. Her blogs are VERY thorough and well researched.

      Game on Dina.

  28. Veena (NMD) says:

    Dina has a history of going nuts on twitter – PutYourHairUp used to blog about her all the time. What she did pisses me off but doesn’t surprise me at all. I always figured the Zen stuff was a cover up.

    And we all know all her trouble with PL’s issues being made public came from Jaq leaking the papers to bloggers.

  29. mrs peabody says:

    I do not like these twins. When Teresa goes there will be no one else to watch on this god awful show. Why I am still watching this is beyond me and why I am watching WWHs is making me wonder I I’m losing my mind. I can’t stand Andy and never watch him.

  30. I did have some fun on Twitter today but OMG, it is just too much input!!! I don’t like that place!! I am closing down my laptop for the night and watching The Good Wife….Dina is playing with Karma…..and we all know that Karma is a bitch!!!
