I Hate Jill Zarin (Just Visiting) Rocco’s Dinner Party / Big Brother

Posted by LynnNChicago on July 14, 2011

I Hate Jill Zarin  Blog Update / Rocco’s Dinner Party / Big Brother

Yes, folks those pesky housewives are at it again, they really don’t like us enjoying a blog!  I wonder if they do this to the other Housewives blogs?  Somehow I don’t think so.

Yesterday I got the all too familiar “Error Message” from WordPress telling me that it us URGENT that I contact them immediately so that I can resume posting.  Of course I contact them immediately and 12 hours later I’ve still heard nothing back from them and so we wait and we tresspass over at TVTime101.  Thank you to the host of TVTime101 for allowing us to hang out over here for a while.  For the record, I am working on a resolution to this problem – a place where I can post what I think in this free world without any threat of being shut down by a $10 an hour cyber-assistant to a D-list realty cast member.  (do you suppose they make that much?)

I feel like we’re playing Monopoly and we’re in the “Just Visiting” section of the jail over here but march on and Pass go and collect $200!

On to the great blogs for today, first our very own VAGirl has recapped Rocco’s Dinner Party…enjoy!

Rocco’s Dinner Party by VAgirl

The three chefs in this episode are Ayinde Howell , a Vegan chef  who does not

cook meat; Nicole Straight, who owns a cooking school;  and Corey Roberts an

Australian airline caterer.  Corey thinks Rocco may look down on an airline

chef, but he’s there to prove him wrong.

In their signature dish challenge, Ayinde makes Texas BBQ rubbed Seitan, Nicole makes Pan Roasted Salmon and Corey makes Mummy Fried Shrimp. For us non-vegetarians, seitan is made from wheat, but has little in common with flour or bread. Also called “wheat meat”, “wheat

gluten” or simply “gluten”, seitan becomes surprisingly similar to the look and

texture of meat when cooked, making it a popular meat substitute. Seitan is also

high in protein, making it a popular protein source for vegetarians.

Rocco thinks Ayinde’s Seitan is over-seasoned;  Nicole’s Salmon is good, but the

truffle butter is misused and her seasonings are inconsistent; and Corey’s

shrimp is not really fried.  He sends Ayinde home and names Corey the winner.

Corey will get to choose the dining room and whether he serves first or second.

The theme of the dinner party is Town and Country.  Corey gets to choose from

two domes on the table and he chooses Country.  Nicole will present the Town

dinner party.  Corey seems happy about it, Nicole not so much.

Corey picks the Terrace dining room and meets with Jes Gordon to discuss décor.

He wants a rustic and country charm feel with a farm table.  He tells Jes he

will make homemade jam in small jars as a take home gift.  She says Corey pulled

this vision out of his heart.  Nicole picks the formal dining room and wants

Spring in the city décor.  While Jes says hers are not the most original ideas,

she is impressed  with Nicole.

Corey and Nicole plan their menus and go shopping.  When they get back to the

kitchen and start preparing their dinners, Rocco brings in Chef  Terrance

Brennan and tells the chefs to make a cheese course with cheese from Chef

Brennan’s cheese shop.  Corey says he will be making deep fried cheese while

Nicole is not sure what she is going to do.

Jes takes each chef to look at their dining rooms.  Both are very happy.

Corey’s is a little too country for my taste, and while Nicole’s looks more

sophisticated, I don’t like the fake grass mat they put under the table.  It

looks pretty tacky.  I’m not really impressed with either room.

The other dinner guests besides Chef Brennan are Melissa Joan Hart, Actress,

Melissa and Joey; Deborah Cox, Singer and Actress; Christian Campbell, Actor,

Big Love; Mo Rocca, Food(ography), Cooking Channel; and Tiler Peck, Principal

Ballerina,  New York City Ballet.

Corey is up first.  The diners don’t really ooh or ahh that much over the dining

room, but they do like the take home gifts.  They love all his courses,

especially the fried cheese and the shrimp.  Corey has so much going on, the

waiters cannot  keep up and it is frustrating to Corey.  Rocco goes to see what

the hold-up is and Corey tells Rocco he needs to go back to his guests.  Rocco

makes a comment that he was kind of hoping he would not like Corey’s food so

much because he’s so cocky (take a look in the mirror, Rocco).   Rocco thinks

Corey’s entrees may have suffered because he tried to do too much.

Now it’s Nicole’s turn.  She says she is very organized and tells the waiters

that presentation is very important.  The diners love the chandeliers and flower

arrangements.   Mo Rocca keeps the party banter going by telling Rocco if they

were same-sex married, his name would be Rocco Rocca.  The diners don’t really

have anything terrible to say about Nicole’s food.  The only real problem she

had was with her lobster flaring up and causing smoke to come out of the kitchen

into the dining room.  She also served Deborah the most rare piece of filet

mignon and Rocco took it back to be cooked more because Deborah likes her steak

well done.  Nicole’s dessert looked great and everyone was impressed with her

sugar domes over chocolate cake.  Nicole even impressed herself with the sugar

domes.  It inspired the diners to break into the Tina Turner Thunderdome song.

At the end Rocco asks Christopher, Melissa and Chef Brennan which dining

experience they liked best.  Christopher liked the Town experience, Melissa

liked the Country experience, and Chef Brennan liked the Country food and the

Town ambiance.  Rocco tells them they didn’t make his decision any easier.

The winner is …  Corey.

I have to say this group of diners really seemed to have a lot of fun.  Mo

provided a lot of comic relief with his trivia knowledge like the longest

recorded flight of a chicken is 13 seconds.  I’m starting to look forward to

this show each week when I didn’t even want to watch it at the beginning of the


Thanks VAGirl, great blog!  xoxo  Lynn~

Big Brother expert Shannon has recapped Big Brother for us…she’s added a SPOILER so be sure to avoid it if you don’t want to know…

Big Brother 13 Episode 3

Veto show by Shannon

Tonight’s episode of Big Brother 13 we find out who won the veto and if it was used. But first let’s get to the good stuff. The game play. First we learn that it was Evil Dick’s idea to put up Keith and Porsche. He had several conversations with her about her joining their side, which she agreed to, but apparently her second personality forgot to tell her first one, because she seemed shocked by being put up. After it was explained to her, yet again, that she was going to get the golden key she was back on board. Keith, thinking he has “The Regulators” to support him, was jumping for joy because he figured this is a great time to get rid of Porsche and for him to get the golden key. (Did I tell you yet that I think the golden key this season was genius?)

We see interviews with both Keith and Porsche saying how they are going to each throw the veto competition so that the other one will go home. It was funny the way BB would cut from one to the other and they were pretty much saying the same thing. One of them are going to be shocked tomorrow night.

So now everyone knows that Dick went home. We still don’t have an explanation other than Dick saying it was a personal matter concerning a friend. Rumor has it that a CBS crew was sent to Dick’s home to shoot a video that will hopefully explain more, that will be shown on Thursday’s show. As a result of Dick leaving, Dani gets the first golden key. She will automatically be safe until the top 10.

Losing Dick sent the veteran’s into a frenzy. Dani was crying, Rachel was pissed and Brendon was ready to go confront Keith, when he heard that he was laughing about Dick leaving. The other veterans had to do a play ground “hold me back” to get him to stay up in the HOH room. Jordan was saying how screwed they all were and Jeff comes in and gives a inspirational speech about them not letting this hold them down. By the end of the night they had regrouped, cut their loses and came up with another plan.

Keith decided that he was going to be the “hero” of the newbies group and was going to call everyone out on what games they were playing. He calls all the newbies together and calls out Kalia & Porsche, saying how they are with the other side. That isn’t a good game plan when you are on the block. The only one who looked like a fool after that meeting was Keith.

The Veto Competition

Adam hosted the veto competition where the teams, HOH Rachel & Brendon, nominees Keith & Porsche, and the couple chosen at random Jeff & Jordan had to complete a puzzle. The contestants were connected to a pulley so when a teammate went to get a puzzle piece, the other one would go up in the air and could install the puzzle piece. The first team finished wins the veto.

Jeff & Jordan again show us that they are not good at puzzles. Keith and Porsche did better and they were both trying to throw it. In the end Rachel and Brendon won. Since they had the power to replace the nominees, they decided to call each team up to the HOH, and in return for not replacing them as the nominees, they wanted them to agree not to put up Rachel & Brendon and Jeff & Jordan if they won HOH next week. Of course, they are all going to agree. Well, all but Cassie, who questioned about going to the end with them because she felt like they would choose Jeff & Jordan over her team. She did have a point, but it wasn’t the smartest thing to bring it up just then.

In the end they decide not the use the power of veto. Either Keith or Porsche will be voted out on Thursday’s live show. Keith is expecting to be saved by “The Regulators” and the newbies, and Porsche is expecting to be saved by the veterans. One of them is going to be shocked.


Please do not read if you don’t want to know what is happening on the live feeds.

What this episode didn’t show you is that Keith didn’t just call out Porsche and Kalia, he has at one time or another, called out every member of his so called alliance. I’ve watched a lot of seasons of Big Brother and I don’t think I have ever seen a player play as bad as Keith. But all that aside, he still thinks he has the votes to stay. The problem is that now Shelly and Kalia have joined up with the veterans (for this week at least) and is going to vote Keith out. They are both going to the veterans and telling them everything the newbies are doing. Neither has been telling the newbies anything so I believe that they are sincere and are going to stick with the veterans. The other newbies are going to be shocked after tomorrows vote and will fall apart, pointing the fingers at each other. But I could be all wrong. That is the great thing about Big Brother. It should be a fun night for the feeds.

******END OF SPOILER ALERT********

Thanks Shannon, great job! What do you all think of Dick going home so early in the season? Some people have speculated that he wanted to help futher his daughter’s game but I don’t think that’s the case, he couldn’t have known what would happen to Danielle if he quit the game. Luckily she was given a golden key but what if Big Brother decided to just make her play on her own or gave her a different partner?

Danielle was upset but it was pretty strange, I know the two of them don’t have a great relationship but she seemed upset at first because she was worried about what could have happened to make him leave the game, she explained that he LOVES Big Brother and that it is his life so it had to be something pretty serious to make him leave, then the concern for his well being seemed to disappear and she was just upset about how this will affect her game.

Here’s what Reality Tea had to say:

Here is Evel Dick’s video explaining..well, nothing…

The interview with Melissa Gorga of The Real Housewives of New Jersey was not deleted by me and there were no issues from Melissa or her camp, I spoke with her PR person and they’re just as confused as we are, Bravo didn’t complain as some speculated, they approved Melissa’s interview with me.  And so we wait to hear from WordPress what the problem is all about.  Please know that I am working on a solution to this problem, hang in there with me!

In the meantime you sneaky Housewife blogger who tried to steal my interview with Melissa and post it on YOUR blog, shame on you!  Melissa and her publicist are never going to approve that!  It’s unethical, underhanded and most of us bloggers don’t roll like that but now I know that YOU do….I’ll keep my eye out.  Yes, Melissa’s camp told me that you contacted them requesting that they send you MY interview with Melissa so you could post it on YOUR Blog….shame shame shame on you!  Your reputation proceeds you and gets worse everyday.  Sad!

Thank you again to TVTime101 for allowing us to hang out here for today, hopefully we’ll be out of your way and back home tomorrow…but for now I see a comfy seat right over there —–>  Come join me everyone!

Until Next Time….

    Go, Rhetorica, Go! I sent an email to WordPress but since they’ve already shown themselves to be so cowardly, I doubt it’;; do any good. Wow, Maggie Reynolds, your parents must be so proud of you now! I’m sure they always dreamed that one day you could become an underpaid flying monkey who does the bidding of a narcissistic Z-list celebrity and her smelly little fog too, even if that mens screwing around with other folks’ freedom of speech. Mom and Dad must be bursting their buttons with pride over this highly respectable job of yours. I’m sure they brag about it to all their friends. And maybe Jill will give you some of her used granny panties or soiled T-shirts as a reward. What a lucky and accomplished gal you are, Maggie.

    I was thinking that when you’re fighting with someone who lives in the gutter, you sometimes have to go down to their level, so Ima start sending emails about Jill and her latest luncacy to her old pal, Perez Hilton, and a few others of his ilk. If she wants that kind of infamy, let her have it. Plus, it’d be a fun project for me. And it couldn’t hurt! Hey, is Cindy Adams dead yet? She must be by now.

    Oh, and TYVM tvtime! You’re a good neighbor. Also, Happy Birthday, Pantry Viewer. Please drink eight or nine Skinnygirl margaitas for me. And if you live anywhere near me, I’m hoping your pantry has air conditioning:)

    I want to thank TV Time 101 our host for standing Proud to protect our Freedom of Speech. Lynn, God bless you and all your efforts in providing us a place to meet and share our thoughts. Please continue, this is an amazing process, I am just sorry I did not find you sooner. It was not until it was mentioned on the show that I got the itch to explore. Frustrated with the Bravo blogs, I had given up. NO more will BRAVO or Jill and her flying monkeys deter me.

    Seriously, not only is this fun, it is also MOST educational, I am truly digging the Electronic Frontier Foundation’s site, reading about our rights and the court cases they are involved with. I took this ditty from their site.

    “Internet bullies should’nt use, copyright, libel, or other claims to chill your legitimate speech.”

    Thank you Everyone who post on IHJZ for sticking with it. Know that i am not opposed to going to battle with all of your wonderful peeps…

    Jill is trying to get the blog shut down or disrupted before the next episode of Housewives airs..which is tonight. Last week she did the same thing around the same time. Notice that the blog gets disrupted the day of or the day before the next episode of #RHONY airs.

    We should have a day where everyone sends a tweet to Jill with hashtag #getahobby

    I made sure to put a link with Lynn’s blog too – hopefully she gets more hits..dont forget to retweet!

    • IndianaHousewife said

      Ok I joined twitter to unfollow Jill on June 30th. I have since followed Simon, Alex, Bethenny, Ramona and Sonja. I have not sent out any twitters of my own. Can you tell me how to do what you are talking about above, please. Oh and I follow Lynn.

    • MKValle said

      I would send a Twitter to Jill but since I’m blocked she’ll never get, also blocked (proudly!~)by her dog and Maggie May, I mean reynolds

  4. Duchess of Dryer Lint said

    LYNN—-The offer to use my blog page still stands for tonights chat. You have my email or just reply here and I will create a page and post a link! Let me know.

  5. IndianaHousewife said

    Just went to look at my twitter account and guess what? I have one follower … Simon. How many other people can say he was their first follower? Truly it was probably an accident on his part and I am impressed. Made my day!

  6. OneMoreInBoston said

    Just sent an email to Matt- don’t how much it will do but at least I did something to help out Lynn:

    To: Matt Mullenweg

    I am outraged by WordPress removing posts of Lynn Hudson’s blog I Hate Jill Zarin.

    By removing Lynn Hudson’s I Hate Jill Zarin post of off WordPress to review and perhaps even amend copy, your organization has given in to the vicious and petty D List reality “star” this blog is named after.

    I am shocked and appalled that you value the neurotic paranoia of Jill Zarin over Lynn Hudson’s right to free speech.

    This action is absolute censorship as your organization is attempting to control and suppress the publishing of information.

    It is even more bewildering since WordPress is completely protected from threats of legal prosecution under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.

    Please advise

    Bloshka has also posted several times on this blog in the past. She was very subtle in her defense of Jill and the posters were very nice to her.

    On TWOP, she has repeatedly called this blog a hate blog out to get JZ. I find it suspicious.

    I really think Lynn should consider hosting her own blog with paid advertisers. She gets enough hits now that it would be worth her time and this type of BS would go away.

  8. Mookies1mom said

    So… Jill wants to shut the site down before the show tonight so we can’t say anything. How’s that working for ya’? You may have the site “on hold” for now but unlike you Lynn has friends and we will follow her where she goes.

    Again, I want to thank Tv Time for hosting us! You are awesome!

    I am moving this blog into a new theme and hosted server within the next few hours to protect the content on this blog…

    Things may look funny at first but all issues will be ironed out on an as needed basis to expedite this process.

    WEBSITE NAME WILL NOT CHANGE! WordPress will no longer be hosting this site so break out the champagne as you see obvious changes.. PRAY FOR US!! 😉

    I suspect Bethenney has a eating disorder. She doesn’t look healthy. Her rapid fire banter is extremely annoying and it doesn’t come across as authentic. I think she is also on speed which would contribute to the weight loss.

  13. sadtwat said

    Score one for team Zarin. The hate blog is going bye-bye. LOL!

  14. “Team Zarin”, don’t declare victory yet. What is the title of this blog? As long as there is a blog titled I HATE JILL ZARIN, it will annoy Jill. I HATE JILL ZARIN will live on and it will drive Jill crazy. 🙂

    • VAgirl said

      I wonder where that poster got the idea the “hate blog” is going bye bye? It’s alive and kickin!

      • TLM said

        Sadtwat is a troll, as I suspected on WordPress from the entries there. Pay no mind.

      • That poster failed to read the title of the blog.I HATE JILL ZARIN is alive and kicking. I’m sure that Jill and her minions thought they could kill the blog completely. Dream on “Team Jill”.

    If can get advertisers for his own blog, I’m sure Lynn could do so easily, especially with 3mm hits! The only negative is that there is one pop-up ad that is extremely annoying.

    And, I’m ashamed to admit it, but I do watch Bachelor to observe ignorant behavior.

    You might want to look at this site:

    ie., The following areas have NEVER been protected by the Constitution.
