    I lost count of how many times Jill & Luann told Kelly to be quiet.

    In my opinion Jill hates Alex because Alex is 1) actually not intimidated by Jill and can hold her own against Jill, and 2) Alex is a convenient scapegoat to address her hurt over Bethenny's and Ramona's "betrayals".

    In the past seasons Alex (as we now know) was a "turn the cheek" person in response to Jill's comments about her out of control children, or her and Simon's pathetic social climbing forays, etc. We now see that not only is Alex able to go toe to toe with Jill (though it was a learning process and she did much better during the reunion than on her first attempt when delivering Bethenny's message), but she is able to really get down to the heart of the matter in describing how Jill's behavior is hurtful, mean-girl, etc. For example when Alex brought up how Jill and Luann were picking on her boys, Jill started to deflect and say that it was all Luann because it was her story. Alex shut her down with the "no, you were stirring the pot by asking Luann to recount it. (paraphrased) The "Jill is a mean girl" statement that is used frequently now to describe Jill is due to Alex. Alex is able to outsmart Jill.

    Then we have Bethenny's and Ramona's growing friendship with Alex this season. Who was the person who delivered Bethenny's "message" to Jill? - Alex. I think that Alex being Bethenny's confidant sent a bigger message to Jill than any words said. At the same time there was increasing tension between Jill, and Bethenny and Ramona. Jill herself said that Ramona was picking Alex over her when Jill and Ramona were talking by the car after Ramona asked her to leave the island.

    Three words for Kelly: Borderline Personality Disorder.

    Yes. She's spent her life being treated as "special" because she's pretty. I doubt she's ever really been challenged with the complexities of real relationships. And if she's tuning out half of what is said, she's absolutely going to talk nonsense in response. Context is key to separating out the fightin' words!

    I don't think it's Borderline at all.

    I can't believe that no one is leaking information about what happened on Scary Island! Think of the production crew, techincal consultants, family, friends, etc..... there are a lot of people that are potentially in the know, and we aren't finding anything out. It must have been really bad...

    I don't think there was anything that was crazier than what we saw, there was just more of it.

Okay this I CAN understand..
    Ramona and Alex also knew that Bobby was having a procedure. I think this is a ridiculous reason for Jill to be mad at Bethenny. I really don't think Jill knew why she was upset with Bethenny and think that she was using Bobby hospital stay as an excuse.
