    And that whole "It wasn't a breakdown, it was a breakTHROUGH"....WHAT FLIPPIN EVER...that's PR 101 right there.
    She admitted that she has different personalities last night...though I'm quite sure she didn't realize what she was saying.

    I've read elsewhere that many people believe that Kelly has symptoms of Asperger's Syndrome, albeit highly functioning. While I'm not a medical doctor, she does seem to have many traits suffered by people with Aspergers such as:

    #Relating to others: She does not understand other's emotions or social responses accurately in a group situation. She may not understand if an activity or conversation is boring or upsetting to another person.
    # Problems with two-way conversation: She has trouble with initiating and maintaining a two-way conversation. She may appear to talk at someone than with them. Conversation topics may focus on an obsessive interest.
    # Inability to understand common social cues: She may not comprehend common social cues such as facial expressions, body language or gestures.
    # Rigid range of interests for social interaction: She will only engage in a narrow range of activities or talk about certain subjects.
    # Inappropriate responses: She may behave or respond to social situations in an unusual or inappropriate manner. For example, an affected person may laugh at something sad.
    #Trouble with language use: She has trouble using language appropriately in social situations. She may also misunderstand common word meanings.
    # Unusual use of words: She may use words in an unusual way or create her own words.
    # Language rituals: She might have certain word scripts that she repeats ritualistically in conversation with others.
    # Difficulty processing language: She does not always understand the verbal speech of others or misunderstands the meaning of a conversation. She may have trouble making a decision or answering a question.
    # Literal interpretation of words: She interprets most language on a literal level and misses abstract meanings.

    Whether Kelly as aspergers or not, seems that the therapy for helping children with Aspergers would also be useful for Kelly.

    Last night was over the top once again.
    Ramona got so excited / emotional that I wasn't sure what might happen first - an eye pop out, or a wardrobe malfunction a la Janet Jackson!

    Kelly is definitely in her own little world.

    Alex is letting her claws come out. I still would prefer to see her husband to her. I just finmd her dull and vapid. And, she tries too hard to play both sides.

    The Countess is very good at deflecting questions. And, I do think she does it in a "classy" way. Sonja is really good at that, too. They both manage to stay under the radar and not really upset anyone.

    I was glad to see Jill and Bethenny hug. After all that drama, we needed it and, IMO, it did look real.

    It did look real but I get the feeling that Bethenny wasn't really buying what Jill was trying to sell. She seemed leery when Jill claimed to be really sorry and I do not blame her.

    My Mother has Borderline Personality and, I do not see this fully in Kelly. The thing with BPD is usually the person will not get help because they don't think they have a problem.

    Watching Part 2 again today, I was struck by how much Jill hates Alex. It's not just whan she kept making the point about them not being friends, it's a look she gives Alex whenever she is speaking directly to her. It is INTENSE hatred. I'm not sure why Alex is the only one she has singled out to dislike so much. She's apologized to everyone but Alex. I feel there is something more that we don't know or maybe Jill needs at least one person to focus all her anger on and it become Alex. I feel Jill really doesn't want Alex to return to the show. Jill doesn't have a poker face and even tho you can tell she's annoyed with most of the wives, her feelings about Alex are HUGELY negative.
    Maybe I've missed something here but am unsure why she's directing such venom towards Alex. Even in the previews of the next part of the reunion when she talks about something "spread eagle" to Alex, it very apparent.
    What has Alex done that's worse than any of the other women or is she just Jill's scapegoat??
    I think Jill's hatred of Alex is about what everything with Jill is about, jealousy when someone else has something she wants and that Alex might take some of the spotlight off of her.

    In the case of Alex it's friendship with Bethenny, Bethenny's telling Alex about the engagement, her father's illness and the pregnancy before Jill knew, public approval, which Jill no longer has, and the chance to be on Bethenny's show. Jill may try to act like she takes responsibility for her bad behavior and bad decisions on camera because her publicist told her too, but really she needs someone to blame besides herself and she's chosen to focus her anger on Alex, because Alex has what she wants.

    Which pretty much sums up Kelly.

    I don't know if she has BPD but there is something wrong with her mentally.

    Re: The Real Housewives of New York

    I don't know why after Kelly was asked to leave and escorted home by a producer, that Bravo didn't give her the condition that if she didn't get evaluated or some sort of help she would no longer be on for the rest of the season.
    No clips of her going crazy on St. John's were shown at the reunion and the major scary points or details of her breakdown were not discussed (her saying Bethenny was going to kill her, telling everyone to "zip it", al sharpton, saying Alex was channeling the devil in kabuki make-up, weirdly offering everyone gummi worms, crying over Bethenny's gift, her inability to leave Bethenny alone). Maybe these were all triggers for Kelly and Bravo was trying to protect her mental state? Maybe these questions were asked of Kelly but they and her nonsensical answers were not shown. Heck, I think Bravo should set a condition that she gets help or doesn't come back at all next season. But then again, she brings the drama/ratings.

    I think Jill hates Alex, b/c she considers her beneath her. Alex is from Brooklyn and so that makes her trash to Jill. I think a lot of Manhattanites put down anyone from Brooklyn. Jill can't see past that; she might have been willing to in the begining, but since Alex has further annoyed her by daring to question Jill and her world; Jill can't be bothered and will look for any way to cut her down.

    Re: The Real Housewives of New York

    I want to know why none of housewives called Kelly out on her always trying to comment on someones elses questions (i.e Jill) but when she is asked a question she can't even formulate a cohesive answer without her typical "I appreciate that". I don't think anything she said the entire 3 parts of the reunion made any sense to anyone including herself.
