Marisa Zanuck says Comparison with Alex McCord is not a Compliment and is “Bored” with Simon van Kempen – News by NoMoreDrama
Alex McCord has a new job blogging fashion for Sulia. Last night she tweeted this: “It’s #RHOBH @Celebuzz time! @VandyGrad asked whether I look like @MarisaZanuck – you tell me? Side-by-Side PHOTO”
Apparently Marisa Zanuck was not amused. Below is a string of tweets between Marisa, fans, and ultimately Simon van Kempen. After Simon admonished Marisa with a #shameonyou hashtag for saying she didn’t think the comparison was flattering, she signed off with a “I am bored goodnight…” Wowza. You can read Alex’s comparison here. I see nothing that would make Marisa act like that. It’s funny how your impression of someone can change in a hot minute. Marisa – get over yourself. There was no need to say anything negative about Alex!
After that exchange Marisa had a little more to say about Simon. This is less cut and dry to me. Should Simon have intervened? I don’t know. That’s what he does. As far as I’m concerned Marisa shouldn’t have slammed Alex in the first place. I do find it strange that Marisa played the gender card. “A man shouldn’t even want to read this shit.” The man was reading a response to his wife’s tweet. Are there tweets I’m not supposed to read because I’m a woman? Strange comment??
Paul Nassif is Suing Former Chef Bernie Guzman for False Accusations, Blackmail and Extortion. This isn’t really that much of a surprise. Back in the fall when Paul Nassif and Adrienne Maloof were in the midst of their divorce, chef Bernie posted pictures of Adrienne with a bruised back on his facebook, with the following: “Now you know who and what he really is … he is a beast.” Paul claims the allegations of abuse are “outrageous lies.”
According to a report by TMZ, when Paul’s lawyer contacted Bernie, Bernie sent the following text to Paul, “Stop harassing me…Have you forgotten I witnessed you beat your wife … Kids & animals. I have plenty of pretty family photos … Some not so pretty … Stay away …” That’s where the blackmail comes in. Paul believes that Bernie was saying that if Paul continued pursuing legal action, Bernie would release additional photos. It did seem that Bernie went too far when he released the photos, and I’m glad Paul is pursuing legal action. What I can not figure out is how Paul allowed Bernie to be his employee for so long.
Brandi and Camille got into it last night on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Brandi explained that all of her troubles with Adrienne Maloof began after she exposed the “secret” meeting Adrienne was planning to “take down” Lisa Vanderpump at last year’s reunion. After receiving numerous calls from Adrienne, Brandi called Camille (who was in Hawaii) to get her advice. Camille told Brandi she didn’t have a problem with Lisa, and Brandi should do what she felt best (which was not go along with Adrienne). All of this they both agree happened.
Brandi also claims that Adrienne had called Camille. Camille refused to confirm that, and called Brandi a liar. In the end it seemed that Camille just didn’t want to be dragged into the fight and felt as though Brandi was throwing her under the bus. My real question is Kyle. Did she get a call from Adrienne as well?? Why wasn’t anyone asking that??? But since they didn’t – the poll is about Brandi and Camille.
This is what Brandi told Lynn Hudson almost a year ago:
“Brandi told me that she knew the ladies had met and discussed reunion strategy before filming, without Lisa! With the exception of Camille, the other ladies had pre-arranged the attack on Lisa at the reunion but Brandi refused to be a part of any of it! When Brandi was brought out onto the stage, Brandi said that Lisa was crying. Brandi had been waiting backstage for hours and wasn’t allowed to watch or hear what was happening on stage. Brandi knew in advance that the plan of Kyle, Taylor and Adrienne was to slam it to Lisa and so Brandi admits to coming out with a chip on her shoulder.” You can read the full interview by clicking here.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills “Kim Nose Best” by BB
On a scale of 1 to 10, I am rating the pole performances of the BH housewives:
- Brandi – 10 She’s a natural and could probably make some good money at it if she wanted.
- Camille – 8.5. Her dance background definitely shows on the pole. It’s no surprise she’s still with her sexy stud of a boyfriend.
- Jennifer – 7. Surprisingly she seemed to know her way around the pole.
- Lisa – 6. You could tell she was out of her comfort zone, but at least she tried to show a little of her inner sexy. She was a good sport about it.
- Yolanda – 6. Yolanda was a little too concerned about being technically correct instead of just going with it. She gave it the old college try and was also a good sport and supportive of Brandi.
- Kyle – 5. Kyle made a big joke out of it, but at least she seemed to be having fun with it.
- Marisa – 1. She was a big ole Debbie Downer. Maybe she’s not into the girls’ night out thing, but so far she’s not been engaged on this trip. She was quiet at dinner and a dud on the pole. Maybe she’s just not comfortable with the others yet (or that comfortable in her own skin).
Adrienne is launching a handbag line. How original. I would have fast forwarded through this Maloofalicious segment, but it was so short, I didn’t have a chance!
The Vegas Girls are in the limo and Kyle answers her phone. It’s Kim. Kim knows all the women are listening to the phone conversation but she chooses to tell Kyle she’s going to get her nose done THAT DAY! She asks Kyle to pray for her. Brandi asks if Kim will be able to take pain meds (and you can see Jennifer shaking her head no). Kyle is sure Kim has discussed that with her doctor because of her commitment to staying sober. Yolanda thinks Kyle is brushing it off like it’s a minor thing and thinks it’s a mistake.
Next we see Kim at the plastic surgeon’s office getting ready to go under the knife. She has brought her assistant Wendy with her. I find it a little (sad) unusual that no family member is there with her.
The happy couple Adrienne and Paul are at his office so she can belittle him while he’s having laser hair removal. Adrienne thinks a weed whacker would do better than a laser. Adrienne notices he’s not flinching enough and wants the technician to crank it up a little. She’s getting a little too much pleasure out of seeing Paul in pain.
Kim’s surgery is over and her surgeon tells her she will get something for the pain and something to take home for the pain. He tells her there’s little bruising. She mentions her sister and daughter. Too bad she didn’t tell Kyle about her surgery so she could have been there. But wait, Kyle acted like an idiot when Mauricio’s mom had plastic surgery, so maybe it’s best she wasn’t there for Kim’s.
The Vegas girls are having another dinner together, in one of the hotel suites this time. Probably best since this dinner is not going to be as much fun as the last one. All of them look great. Brandi brings up the fact that Kim called Kyle out of the blue about her nose job; Kyle says her sister is a little eccentric; and Lisa says that’s the understatement of the year. Jennifer asks Kyle if she’s concerned about Kim maybe taking medications after being so newly sober. Yolanda asks Jennifer what she thinks about it since she is a recovering addict and is now an addiction specialist. Jennifer says there’s a risk when having surgery that it could awaken the beast (of addiction). They continue discussing their concerns that maybe it’s too early for Kim to be doing this, but they all wish her well. Obviously Kyle is in a difficult position because she’s not Kim’s keeper and like she said, Kim is going to do what Kim is going to do.
Yolanda asks Camille what’s new with her and she says she feels bad about Adrienne not being there and Kyle agrees. Why did Camille bring up Adrienne’s name on a trip hosted by someone who is currently having big, including legal, problems with Adrienne? What is the point of bringing up Adrienne? Why? Why? Why? Kyle says all of their prior fun in Vegas has included Adrienne (Kyle forgot Pandora’s bachelorette party I guess). Brandi tells them she likes Adrienne but as soon as she told Adrienne she didn’t agree with her, things got ugly. All the animosity started when Brandi told Adrienne she was not going to go there. Yolanda says Adrienne chose not to be with them so that was her choice.
Lisa says she thinks it’s a mistake and to always remember that people aren’t interested in what you have to say, it’s what you have to hide. Kyle asks Lisa what she means. Lisa looks at Brandi and tells her to say what she told her. Brandi says she can’t talk about it or she will get sued so she asks Jennifer to tell the story. Jennifer explains that Brandi was on the phone with Adrienne (the speaker was on) and Adrienne wanted Brandi to go against Lisa. Jennifer then says she thinks there was another phone call between Camille and Brandi about it. Camille says “she was nervous,” where Brandi chimes in that she called Camille in Hawaii and she asked what was happening, Adrienne’s calling her and Camille said she knew. Camille then says Brandi was nervous about the reunion show. In her TH, Brandi says she was freaking out because Adrienne kept calling her saying they were meeting at the Polo Lounge, they needed to talk to her and that they were going to go after Lisa. Brandi was not comfortable with that.
Somebody (Brandi or Camille?) then says “It’s not a shoe, it’s a person.” Camille says she told Brandi not to be nervous, to speak the truth. Then Brandi says Camille told her do what she wanted to do, she had nothing against Lisa, just do her thing. Camille says “Adrienne was just upset about the Maloof Hoof and she didn’t want the hoof associated or connected to her brand.” Lisa looks at Camille (who looks a little uneasy at this point) and tells her there is also one other thing she’s leaving out. Kyle looks at Lisa and says “Drum Roll Lisa.” In her TH, Lisa says Brandi insists that Adrienne called her and Camille, and Camille said to Brandi “Yes, I know they are going after Lisa at the reunion. But Camille denies it.”
Lisa spills it and says to Camille that Brandi said that Camille did know that Adrienne was going after Lisa and admitted it to Brandi. Camille says she doesn’t remember saying that. Now, usually when people say they don’t remember saying something, they said it. Camille is backed into a corner and tells Brandi she’s getting really mad. The seat is too hot and Camille has to leave the table. She calls Brandi a liar and Brandi tells her she isn’t lying. Lisa tells her not to go and Camille says for the second time “I can handle it, but I will not stand for it” whatever the heck that means. Kyle does what she does best. She runs out to get Camille to come back because as long as the heat is on her, it’s off Kyle. And you know how Kyle loves a good fight during dinner.
Camille goes back in and talks about people’s perceptions of things and how Adrienne was so upset about Pandora’s not using the Palms. Brandi says Adrienne only owns 2% of the Palms. Kyle tells Brandi that’s so mean. Doesn’t everybody know that? I knew that and I knew that a long time ago. I’m pretty sure I read that somewhere way before shooting of the third season started. Lisa has a point when she says what Adrienne said about her doesn’t seem to be valid, but anything said about Adrienne is a really big deal.
Will the real Camille please stand up? There you are! I’ve missed the real Camille. She says while they are talking about people who don’t own restaurants… Lisa says I own a restaurant. Camille says she doesn’t own SUR. The Bitch is Back! I guess that must be Camille’s perception about restaurant ownership since Lisa says she’s always said she owns 51% of SUR. Kyle points out that Brandi hit below the belt because she’s pissed at Adrienne. Brandi admits it.
Yolanda tells Kyle they’ve wasted three dinners going over and over the same thing and it’s enough. Kyle says she is just standing up for what she thinks is right, but it’s not her battle, it’s not her fight. Yolanda points out that Kyle always happens to be in the middle of the conversation and they all know her stance on it by now so move on. Thank you, Yolanda. Even Lisa feels bad for Adrienne but she understands where Brandi is coming from also. Lisa and Kyle go tit for tat and Yolanda says it nobody’s business and Camille screams “I agree, I agree, that’s the point Yolanda,” and Yolanda shushes her like you would a toddler having a tantrum. I.love.Yolanda. Brandi tells Camille at least she knows where she (Camille) stands and it sucks. Camille tells Brandi she doesn’t protect one against the other. Brandi tells her she just did. Camille tells her it wasn’t right for her to say that about Adrienne and the Palms.
At that point Yolanda stands up and tells Camille she has to go. David has sent a private jet for her to leave early. She is so ready to leave. Kyle tells Yolanda they are going on her plane with her. Yolanda’s time is precious and she wonders why she went all the way to Vegas to hear a bunch of girls screaming at each other. It’s just not worth her time.
Kyle feels stuck because she and Lisa keep going over the same things. Lisa feels that Kyle defends everyone except her and sometimes the silence of your friends is more hurtful than the words of your enemies. Brandi wants to know why they can’t disagree about things and still be friends. Out in the hallway, Camille finally admits to Brandi she “remembers parts of the rest of it, yes.” But she didn’t like that Brandi put her on the spot by bringing it up. Excuse me, but who brought up the fact that they were sad Adrienne wasn’t there in Vegas with them? Her name starts with a C.
Kyle goes to check on Kim. Kim is lying in bed with a cute new puppy. Kyle is checking her out and tells Kim her nose is so straight and she looks really good. Kim tells Kyle she hasn’t needed anything for the pain even though the doctor gave her something and the doctor used the least amount of anesthesia possible when he put her under.
The last scene has Kyle telling Kim about Vegas and Lisa telling Ken about Vegas. Kyle tells Kim she can’t talk about the Brandi thing ever again. We’ll see about that. Lisa can’t understand Kyle’s lack of loyalty if she’s supposed to be such a good friend. More about that next week
Watch What Happens Live by BB
Oh, the sacrifices I have to make. The guests tonight are Kyle from RHOBH and Kristin from Vanderpump Rules.
They show a clip of Scheana’s music video. It’s pretty awful.
OMG. I just threw up in my mouth a little. The bartender is Mauricio. He says he doesn’t regret what happened at the Moroccan restaurant. They just had their 17th wedding anniversary.
They show Kyle’s dive from Stars in Danger. It’s pretty pathetic. Kyle takes up for Kim’s non-dive because she did it from the high platform. They show the topless photo of Kyle. Mauricio is so proud of himself for tweeting it. Kyle says she told Mauricio to delete but he didn’t know how. I’ll bet. (I checked and he has deleted it now – not that it matters – once it’s been retweeted …. NMD)
They show the dinner from RHOBH and Kyle says it gives her anxiety to watch it again. It should.
They show a scene from Vanderpump Rules, but it just looks like a lot of immature babbling to me.
Amy Phillips does Stassi. I’m sure it’s good because she’s always spot on.
Kristin says her relationship with Stassi is up and down all the time.
Someone asks why it is easy for Kyle to easily support Adrienne but leaves Lisa in the wind. Kyle says it’s because Lisa can defend herself fine. I guess Adrienne can’t defend herself and needs others to do it for her.
A caller tells Kyle she loves her jewelry line and she’s her favorite. She asks Kyle about some earrings that are out of stock. Kyle explains it’s not her own line. Kyle says Lisa is sensitive but their relationship is OK.
Kyle says she has never gotten Faye to do her dirty work. She does not hide behind Faye. On her life, Kyle swears.
I missed a question to Kristin. Sorry.
As they break for commercial, Kyle says something to Andy, but I can’t hear what. She’s sucking hard on that drink in her hand.
Did Kristin get engaged? No it’s a cocktail ring.
Kyle has known Adrienne’s boy toy since he was a little boy, Andy says he’s still a boy, and Kyle says she hopes he and Adrienne are having fun.
A caller asks Kristin if she felt bad for Stassi about the Laura Lee situation. She says no. She did not take Jax’s side, something about Frank. Sorry I don’t know these people.
Andy’s excited about the Vanderpump Rules reunion. Kyle asks Andy to please not say the word reunion. Andy asks if she’s scared. She is. Be afraid Kyle, be very afraid.
Andy brings up what Kyle said during the commercial. She’s mad about Lisa saying Kyle uses Faye as her mouthpiece. Kyle says she’s never needed a mouthpiece. Kyle said she had moved on and she had nothing to do with Faye doing that at dinner. She does not lie.
Stupid math skill game. How many times this season has Kyle cried. Kyle says 4 and she is correct. How many times has Tom touched his hair in the morning. Kristin says 8, Kyle says 12. Kristin came closest without going over. How long does it take for Jax to down seven shots. Kyle says 6 seconds. Kristin says 9. The answer is 31. How many times did they have to bleep Brandi. Kyle says 200. Kristin says 69. Only 15. Kyle says so far. I didn’t catch the last question and I don’t really care.
Mauricio tells Andy he brought him the bottle of gin that Ken rejected and a hat from The Agency. Had to get a business plug in there.
Mazel of the day goes to Beyonce who said her Super Bowl performance was “Gone with the Wind Fabulous.” I’m sure Kenya got a kick out of that.
Andy thanks Kyle for letting them borrow the Mexican Jew. Tacky.
