No matter how many times I see her, Jill Zarin always reminds me of the girl mouse from An American Tale.  Anyfival, some of the Real Housewives of New York City got paid to show up at the Eco-Friendly Denim Drive at JCPenney in the Manhattan Mall over the weekend.  Wow how the mighty have fallen.  Jill Zarin, LuAnn de Levorced, and Kelly Bensimon all put on their best sh*t eating grins and took pictures with jeans because, you know, that’s what happens when you become a fauxlebrity.

Speaking of LuAnn, was anyone else surprised by the fact during last weeks Real Housewives that she was apartment hunting in NYC?  And don’t get me wrong, but the apartments she was looking at started at $7500/month.  Sure that’s a lot of money, but renting?  Really?  Didn’t her husband, the Count, like bang the Statue of Liberty or something?  Wouldn’t she get a shat load of money from that divorce?  She better marry up to some cash money, stat.  I mean you can’t pretend you are French royalty and then look at a 800 sq foot apartment in the Lower East Side.  It just make any kind of sense.
