MARY AMONS: EX-DC Housewife Wants Back On “Reality” TV… Says That Being A Housewife Is “Power”!

RHODC mary amons

Quite an interesting interview with EX-DC Housewife, Mary Amons, who tells about her experience as a Housewife.   The MOST interesting part of the interview was Mary’s reasons for wanting to be back on “reality” TV:

Part of why I want to go back on TV too is that I also love the positive influence I can have on people. I have so much more of a chance to inspire people, and be a positive influence. This inspires me to stay grounded, humble, and working hard to achieve my personal best!

This is definitely power — a power I did not have before the show. I think about this a lot, as the power of influence can be used for good or evil… I always want to use my power for good.  I want to encourage and inspire people to be their best. I want to do this, whether on another reality show or my own lifestyle show, maybe both!

NOTE:  Good grief!!  Once they’re a Housewife, they just never let go of that desire to be back on “reality” TV!  MaryAmons is going the “dropping hints via interviews” to let anyone who will listen that she’s available for filming… immediately!  Mary’s “hinting” is in contrast to her fellow EX-DC Housewife, Lynda Erkilitian, who never lets MissAndy forget that she’s ready for her close up via twitter.  

The DC Housewives attempt at getting attention and staying relevant via interviews and twitter is NOTHING compared to the EX-NewYork Housewives!  JillZarin and Silex have been campaigning to get themselves back on “reality” TV since they got da BravoBoot!  

JillZ and Silex are the Rev Al and Jesse of booted ‘wives… anything Housewives-related and there they are!!   Speakin’ of “Rev” Al, he infected the BravoClubhouse and MissAndy was crawlin’ all over the bobblehead…. the “Rev” is all for gay rights! 

The only thing we care about in regard to the DC Housewives is whatever happened to Sparkle!!!!  We wanna know!!!

Real Housewives of New York: JILLZARIN… $15,000 Appearance Fee … At The University of South Florida

November 2, 2010  10:42 am

 Jill Zarin…Testing the new “Head Tazer”…

Kristie Gerber, Director of Student Affairs at the U of South Florida, is the person responsible for booking JillZarin. But Kristie doesn’t have the authority to pick and choose the people that she books.

So, how did JillZarin make $15,000 from USF? Well, Jill and Carole Rome are BFFs. And WHO is Carole Rome? Carole Rome ran a very profitable novelty business and was married to Todd Rome who owns Blue Star Jets. Carole divorced Todd and moved to Florida. While in Florida, Carole met Charlie Crist and they married in 2009.

Charlie Crist is the Governor of Florida, and he is running for Senator as an Independent.

This may be a more direct way to explain how JillZarin got that $15,000 USF speaking engagement:   JZ and Carole Rome have been BFFs from way back …Carole is married to the Governor of FL …JZ gets $15,000 as a payback for all the fundraisers she and Bobby held in the Hamptons for Charlie Crist.

SH contacted Kristie Gerber at USF via email:

Sent: Friday, October 29, 2010 2:05 PM

To: Gerber, Kristie
Subject: Question

Dear Ms. Gerber:

I am writing this email out of curiousity. I am a big fan of the Housewives franchise on Bravo TV and just read an article re Jill Zarin lecturing at the University of South Florida. Your name was listed as the person who arranged Ms. Zarin’s appearance.

Would you mind sharing with me the reason you chose Ms. Zarin to speak with your students? I thought of the many ‘housewives’ who would have the best life experience and business acumen and Jill Zarin falls near the bottom of the list. Kandi Burress, Lisa Vanderpump, Bethenny Frankel and Vicki Gunvalson have far more life and business success than Jill Zarin. I just don’t understand why and how her appearance came about and I hope you don’t mind sharing your logic as to your choice.

I am not a media person nor connected or affiliated with an organization that is for or against the ‘housewives’ or Jill Zarin. I am just a housewife (really!) who goes to the source when I have a question and not one who relies on rumors.

I appreciate your time in responding and look forward to your reply.

Thank you.


UPDATE:  I received an email from Kristie Gerber at USF re the choice of JillZarin.  It’s a very non-answer, but at least she replied:

Thank you for your inquiry.  The ULS student committee selected Jill Zarin for a number of reasons:     They believed in her philanthropy work.  They believed in her perspective on owning and running a successful business.  They believed in her “brand marketing” of herself, and they wanted to hear more about the development of her TV show and where she thought that may be headed.

Additionally, we work with an agents to secure said talent.  There are a number of factors that come into play when selection entertainment for a college community:   Who is currently touring, what their availability is, what our availability is.  Cost and additional contract requirements.

Given all circumstances, this was the Jill Zarin was the best selection for the event that we were hosting.

Thank you for your inquiry.

Kristie Gerber,

Director of the Center for Student Involvement

University of South Florida
