Reza Farahan and Jill Zarin Make-Up
But He Breaks the Confidentiality Rules for her Televised Birthday Party for David Tutera’s CELEBrations
Reza Farahan was a last minute addition to Jill Zarin’s birthday party. When Patti Stranger tweeted out “Can’t wait to see you girls
@Jillzarin @MarysolPatton @GretchenRossi tomorrow night. Xo” on Thursday, Jill Zarin responded, “Add @RezaFarahan to reunion.” For reasons unknown to this blogger, the Reza wasn’t originally invited, but with intervention from Marysol Patton, and a nice handwritten apology from Jill Zarin, all is well again.
Finally together thanks to my girl @marysolpatton. Thanks for a great night @mrsjillzarin #Shahs
Awww – it’s so great that they made up. But will they be fighting again soon?
It seems as though Reza may not have gotten the memo that all the other celebrities received before they attended Jill Zarin’s Birthday Bash on Friday Night out in Los Angeles. You see, it wasn’t just any Birthday Bash, the pseudo-Star Studded affair was being filmed for David Tutera’s show CELEBrations. Get that – celebrities having parties – the sort of stuff we signed up to see when we started watching Bravo – right. Of course the room wasn’t filled with actual celebrities, just a bunch of Bravolebrities that would run into a burning building to get their mugs on TV.
Nevertheless, there are RULES to follow for guests invited to this faux party, and NaughtybutNiceRob posted them on his gossip website (normally I’d not believe a word the man wrote, but this seems legit.)
“*Please arrive at 5:45pm for guest check-in. Please be sure we have full names of anyone in your party, as these names are specified on the list used for security/check-in. Also, please do not add additional names to your party, other than those already specified to Jill (and given to us), as all guests must be cleared by the celebrant.
Regarding Photos: We do understand the desire to take photos of the special day, but we ask that no text/photos/videos are posted on Facebook, YouTube or anywhere on the Internet until AFTER this episode of “David Tutera’s CELEBrations” has aired. We thank you in advance for your cooperation on this.”
Apparently Reza was so excited that he and his “boo” Jill Zarin were besties again, he completely ignored/didn’t see/forgot the instructions, because he posted up a storm on Instagram.
Reza doing a lot of cross overs these days, and also appearing on Millionaire Matchmaker supporting his pal Marysol Patton – the one and same Marysol who hooked him up with his boo Jill Zarin. But don’t worry, Reza is still with Adam, who was his plus one to Jill’s party.
Gretchen Rossi also didn’t get the memo – and posted a photo with the birthday girl!
And finally was the group photo with Peggy Tanous, Marysol Patton, Gretchen, MJ (Mercedes Javid), and Reza. Three ex-housewives, two Shahs and a matchmaker, plus their plus ones.
As for her NY former castmates – Sonja Morgan was not in attendance – but tweeted (in response to Marysol) that she wished she was there.
Ramona Singer, Countess Luann, Heather Thomson and Carole Radziwill were having a night out together:
Nothing from Bethenny.
Melissa and Joe Gorga put their Dream Franklin Lakes Property up for Sale
Melissa and Joe’s Franklin Lakes property – where they had been hoping to build their dream home – is up for sale (again). This comes after the news that the sale on their other McMansion fell through – and the tenant/new owner has since moved out.
The one acre Franklin Lakes property is listed for 1,200,000, and comes complete with an approved building permit and house foundation already in. That’s actually really a drag, because it will make it much harder to sell. Any prospective buyer will have to imagine the home completed, and have to go through the construction process, which is generally an awful experience.
Besides, the market for McMansions in characterless suburbs is falling. Demographic shifts are resulting in the “hot” housing markets for close-in neighborhoods near local shops – not McMansions on large lots in the middle of nowhere. There are lots of “old school” builders that are trying to adjust – and having a hard time. Looks like Joe isn’t keeping up with the times, and may explain why they are having such a hard time selling their other monstrosity. That, and the alleged shoddy craftsmanship.
The description on Realtor.com is:
“AMAZING OPPORTUNITY TO BUILD THIS EUROPEAN TUSCAN VILLA DESIGN MANOR IN EXCLUSIVE FRANKLIN LAKES, ONE ACRE IN CUL-DE-SAC, $2-3$ MILLION DOLLAR NEIGHBORHOOD BY 2014 AWARD WINNING ARCHITECT WITH CELEBRITY DESIGNS. PLANS ALREADY AVAILABLE AND FOUNDATIONS IS COMPLETED, JUST WAITING FOR YOU TO HAVE BRAND NEW CONSTRUCTION! ALL PERMITS HAVE BEEN OBTAINED INCLUDING POOL. DON’T MISS THIS CHANCE OR OPPORTUNITY FOR A CUSTOMIZED NEW CONSTRUCTION MASTERPIECE AND DESIGN BY THIS WELL KNOWN FEATURED AWARD WINNING ARCHITECT”
I confirmed this really is their property – Joe testified in front of the borough’s Planning Board at a public hearing regarding the property on April 2, 2014 – one of the last steps before obtaining his building permit.
From the realtor.com site, here’s a listing history of the property – it’s been listed and delisted many times, although it’s unclear if there were any actual sales.
