On Thursday’s Real Housewives of New York, Bobby Zarin took Simon van Kempen aside during the last few minutes of the show to speak with him about ‘that internet blogger‘… ‘that hate blogger,‘ as Bawbee described the site.
‘That internet blogger‘… ‘that hate blogger‘ is the site “I Hate Jill Zarin“… Bobby asked Simone to ‘shake on it’… but, what exactly did Bobby want Simone to ‘shake on?’ To never visit the IHJZ site…to never speak to Lynn Hudson, the creator of the ‘I Hate Jill Zarin‘ site? As the photos from the link to IHJZ depict, there is a friendly relationship between IHJZ and Simon van Kempen and his wife, Alex McCord.
If Bawbee’s intent for the ‘let’s shake on this’ with Simone is to ‘be on the same page’ as Bawbee and Jillz in regard to the IHJZ site, then Bawbee and Jillz need to open their eyes before making such a request of their friends.
If you hadn’t noticed, there were two people at Jill’s surprise party that were a shocking surprise to eagle-eyed viewers.
Rob Shuter is the 38-year-old PopEater columnist whose ‘Naughty But Nice‘ articles seem to regularly feature one of the Housewives. One of his PR undertakings was acting as the buffer between Tree Joodice and her
fanatical fans adoring audience when Tree agreed to lecture about how to be successful(!?) at her January 10, 2011 Learning Annex class.
The other person attending Jillz surprise party was Michael Musto, long-time columnist at the Village Voice.
So, what were Michael Musto and Rob Shuter doing at Jill Zarin’s surprise birthday party?
Neither Rob Shuter nor Michael Musto appeared in the group scenes at Jill’s party. Rob and Michael’s appearances were quick… Rob at the bar and Michael seated. They disappeared in all the group/crowd scenes…
How can Bawbee ask Simone to ‘shake on it,’ meaning that Simone would agree to keep at arm’s length his and Alex’s relationship with the IHJZ site, when Bawbee is exhibiting the same behavior; basically befriending people who write about ‘reality’ shows… in particular, Bravo’s Housewives franchises?
