Hello everyone! I'm trying to be a good girl and get out a newsletter at the beginning of every week. I'm glad you are enjoying them. Last night I went to my very first Knicks basketball game. Kelly and Ramona were there as well. I had courtside seats. How exciting is that? It's quite an experience, especially when your team wins. It's hard to imagine sitting anywhere else after sitting there. I'm sad the Jets lost, but maybe the Knicks can go all the way for New York. As some of you may know, my sister Lisa and I were in Chicago this past weekend. We were in town for an appearance and book signing at Saks, Highland Park. The event benefited the Ida Crown Jewish Academy. I cannot say enough about how fabulous the Four Seasons Hotel is. It's in a great location and our suite was fabulous. They sent Lisa and I each a gift of the cover of Secrets Of A Jewish Mother made out of chocolate. I would like to give a huge thank you to the M. Salon for opening on Sunday during the Bears game to do our hair and to Saks for our dazzling makeup. We also enjoyed having dinner with Bill and Giuliana Rancic for a breast cancer charity event. Between Saks and the indoor mall at the Four Seasons, of course I couldn't resist getting in a little shopping. The photo at the top of this newsletter of Ally and me is from a photo shoot I did last summer with Markus Klinko and Indrani from Bravo's Double Exposure. The photo in the Skweez Couture ad below is from that shoot as well. They are amazingly talented. The other Housewives and I went to Los Angeles for TCA (Television Critics Association).  All the networks use it to feature new and established shows. Lots of press and parties. NBC did not disappoint with a spectacular cocktail party. While there, I tweeted some photos of me with celebrities such as Tori & Dean and Paris Hilton. I also met the Beverly Hills Housewives and enjoyed lunch with Lisa Vanderpump and her husband Ken at the gorgeous Villa Blanca restaurant. It was there I got to meet Giggy! He is adorable but my Ginger is my baby. You can now follow her on Twitter. @realgingerzarin. Sadly, before Ginger was able to get on Twitter herself somebody had hijacked her name (thus the real) and used it to create a negative character of her. After four months of filming the new season, The Real Housewives Of New York starts in just a few weeks, on Tuesday, February 15. I am very excited about this season. I think you will enjoy it. Bobby is eager to take me away for some quality time together before the season starts, so next week we are heading to Costa Rica. I'll have some beautiful pictures to share when I return. Be sure to read below and see what I am doing for the first few weeks of the season. Have a wonderful week and those of you on the east coast, stay warm! Love, Jill XOXO
