Real Housewives of NYC Reality Check: Jill Zarin Caught in a Lie
Last week on the Housewives of New York City, Jill insulted anyone who came within a five-mile radius of her and Bethenny found out that she was pregnant. But when Bethenny returned for last night's episode, she was magically engaged, leaving viewers to shout angrily at the screen, "What kind of reality fiance does not propose on camera?" Meanwhile, Kelly burnt pancakes in the Hamptons, Alex did something of no interest to viewers, Sonja tried to provoke a sexual awakening within LuAnn and Jill cleaned up after her dog relieved itself in the foyer. Yes, those parts made up the sum total of last night's episode, "Let's See That Ring." Join Movieline as we wade through the wreckage and find the truest and fakest moments.
TRUE: Like Viewers, Ramona's Daughter Wants No Part Of Her Mother's Renewal Ceremony
The life of a teenage girl is pretty miserable, even more so when you are the 14-year-old daughter of Ramona, the craziest of the New York City crazies. Two weeks ago, viewers watched as Ramona excitedly shoved her daughter into traffic so that she could get to a Perez Hilton party faster. Last night, Ramona dragged Avery into her renewal ceremony to celebrate her 17-year marriage.
After asking Avery to be her maid of honor, her daughter sagely pointed out, "Shouldn't you renew your vows after 20 years? Like, 17 is such a random number."
Thank you! Ramona explained that the number does not really matter and besides, she is not sure if she will have a reality show in three years that will pay for the ceremony. Avery rolled her eyes, asked for a full list of her duties "if [I] decide to even be your maid of honor" and then said she'd "rather just watch."
After Avery flagged down a waiter to order breakfast ("I usually get focaccia. You don't have it on the menu but it is with prosciutto, ricotta cheese and truffle oil."), the wise-beyond-her-years daughter told Ramona that the ritual was meaningless since her mother was already married.
Please Bravo, if you are going to continue spinning off the Housewives franchise, give us Real Housewives' Daughters of New York City.
FALSE: Jill Is Not Mad At Anybody
I present you with the greatest screen capture of the night. After last week's episode, in which Jill terrorized every cast member except LuAnn and Sonja, she claimed to not be mad at anyone. The statement was so outrageous that Bravo felt the need to add subtitles.
