Top Chef Masters “Culinary Knock Out” by BB

There are five remaining chefs; Patricia, Lorena, Takashi, Chris and Kerry.

For the first portion of the quick fire challenge, each chef has to proportion eggs, cheese and steak filets to meet certain weight requirements without using a scale.  Chris finishes first, but one of his filets doesn’t meet the weight requirement and he’s disqualified.  Patricia finishes next and she’s disqualified because her steaks are under weight.  That leaves Lorena, Takashi and Kerry.  Takashi finishes next and his portions meet the weight requirement so he will be competing with either Kerry or Lorena.  Kerry finishes next and he will get to compete against Takashi.  They will have 15 minutes to prepare a dish to be judged by Lorena, Patricia and Chris.

Takashi made a beef, cheese, egg and potato dish.  Kerry made a Parmesan encrusted beef dish.  The overall winner is Kerry and he will have immunity in the elimination challenge and get $5,000 for his charity.

The chefs will get to prove who the heavyweight of the kitchen is.  The special judge will be Sugar Ray Leonard.  Wow, he looks fantastic for a 56 year old ex- fighter or any 56 year old for that matter.  There will be three rounds of head to head competition.  Since Kerry has immunity, he’ll be sitting ringside with the critics.  He will automatically be in the final four.  What a lucky quick fire win for him.

The remaining four chefs draw knives to see who will be cooking against who for the first round.  Chris and Takashi will be cooking head to head, so that means Lorena and Patricia will be cooking head to head.  Remember last week Patricia and Lorena had words, so Lorena is excited to be cooking against Patricia first.

Patricia thinks she has an advantage against Lorena and Chris thinks it’s going to be pretty intense cooking against Takashi.  There is boxing ring set up in which the chefs will be cooking their dishes.  Curtis introduces the first “fighters,” Chris and Takashi to the spectators.  The critics are James, food critic Jane Goldman, Krista and Sugar Ray Leonard.  They will be making a dish using bacon.  Chris already has about five dishes in his head that he can cook. Takashi feels a little at a disadvantage.  Everyone is watching and commenting while the chefs cook their dishes, similar to the cooking show “Chopped.”

Chris is going to make a Mexican breakfast and needs more eggs.  Takashi graciously lets Chris have some of his eggs.  Chris messes up one of his eggs and is a little worried.  Takashi is making a bacon steak dish and realizes he’s one piece of bacon short and only has one minute left.  Guess what, Chris gives him piece of his bacon.  The critics have nothing bad to say about Chris’s dish.  One of the critics thinks Takashi has an “interesting” dish.  The winner of this round is Chris.  He will be in the championship round and Takashi will be in the elimination round with the loser of the next challenge.

Curtis introduces Patricia and Lorena for the second round.  They must also make a great dish out of bacon, which Chris thinks is only fair.  Lorena loves the ingredient and is moving fast and furious.  Patricia is cool, calm and collected.  Patricia is going to make a salad with her bacon and finishes before time is up.  Lorena finishes right on time. Lorena made bacon and potato soup and is worried she may have made it more complicated that she needed to.

Sugar Ray thought Lorena’s dish was amazing, but one of the critics thought the bacon got a little lost.  James thought Patricia’s dish was a little sour, but two of the other critics praised it.  And the winner of the second round is Lorena.  She will be competing for the win against Chris.  Patricia will be in the elimination round with Takashi, so one of them will be going home tonight.  I think Patricia is surprised she was beaten by Lorena.  Chris is bummed that either Takashi or Patricia will be leaving.

In the championship round, Patricia wants Chris to win.  I guess there really is a little bad blood between Patricia and Lorena.  The ingredient Chris and Lorena must use is Sugar.  Lorena is going to make chocolate cake and will have a back-up desert ready in case her cake doesn’t get done on time.  Chris is making the Italian desert zabaglione (fruit and cream) and he must constantly stir his dish.  Patricia and Takashi both say to each other they would have never tried to make a cake in that short amount of time. Lorena’s cake gets done on time so she will be serving both of her deserts.  All three deserts look delicious.

Even though Lorena made two deserts, Chris thinks his dish can stand on its own.  Sugar Ray loves it, but Krista thinks it’s a little too salty.  James wishes Lorena could have combined her deserts somehow.  And the Champion is Lorena!  I’m so happy for her because she hasn’t gotten the respect she deserves from the others.  Patricia is classy when she says she respects Lorena more now, she worked for it and deserves it.

Patricia and Takashi must use Chicken Livers in the elimination round.  Patricia is making a warm asparagus salad with the chicken livers.  Takashi kiddingly tells her he’s making the same dish.  At least I think he’s kidding.  Takashi made chicken liver with prosciutto.  James thinks Patricia’s liver was undercooked, but the guest judge disagrees.  The same judge calls Takashi’s dish interesting once again.  Don’t know if that’s a good sign or a bad sign.  Who will be packing their knives and going home?  Oh no, Takashi is going home.  I know there will be a lot of disappointed Takashi fans out there.  He earned $20,000 for his charity.  Takashi feels a little shocked that he’s leaving because he’s won so many quick fire challenges and had done well.  Somebody had to go home.  Next week looks pretty intense for the four remaining chefs.

Aviva Drescher

 OK, I lost my s–t on tonight’s episode.

Yeah, no s–t.

I felt bad enough that Reid had to come at all and I was so embarrassed that my “friends” were hashing out a plan to kick him out of the house when he was just trying to do a nice thing and get me down there to be with them. I felt like I had to be protective of him when we were being mistreated and I went overboard.

You’re full of s–t, you weren’t mistreated.

In retrospect had I known that Reid taking a bed, which had its own private entrance, would have caused so much drama he would have been happy to stay in a hotel. . .

But even if he stayed in a hotel I just have this funny feeling that we still would have gotten berated.

So this s–t happened in your head. S–t, your worse than I thought. Next time let the s–t happen so you’ll have a good reason to explode (that’s if your still on the show next season).

When I arrived at the house and Ramona and Sonja were in the pool, I sensed a cold unwelcoming vibe from them.

You are bat s–t crazy.

Conversely, LuAnn, Heather, and Carole could not have been nicer or warmer.

They realized they were neck deep in s–t as soon as they saw you lose it.

Once I realized that Ramona and Sonja were planning to ask Reid to leave the house, thanks to LuAnn being forthright, I could no longer see straight. I was irate.

Lulu is a piece of s–t.

It is my constitution to welcome people in any home no matter what.

Like they’d come to your house after they’ve seen that s–t played out

I was so angry that I couldn’t even get my words out properly. I didn’t need a “party” nor a “red carpet.” I just wanted someone to appreciate that I came down in spite of all my fears to be with them and my husband was just going above and beyond. A high five would have sufficed.

Oh please, you said red carpet cause you think you’re the s–t.

I regret that I called Ramona and Sonja “white trash.” Name calling is wrong and I should have used different words to convey my point. Here I am raising four children and one of the biggest rules in our home is no name calling. It just slipped out of my mouth in a moment of anger. I suppose now I have to give my children one free pass.

In a moment of anger, they’ll probably yell “S–t!”

I would have formally apologized in St. Barths but I was just too upset — hence the silly reference to Rush Limbaugh’s idiotic fake apology.I suppose apologizing in Ramona’s ear as she gave me her own phony apology was probably just not good enough. For my part, I expected more from my “friends” Ramona and Sonja. Without trying to absolve myself of all of my sins, I hope everyone can appreciate that this was the perfect storm of bad circumstances for me.

You mean the perfect s–tstorm. I think Aviva had anxiety and was scared s–t-less coming off the flight.  She was still s–t mad that Ramona and Sonja didn’t come to her charity event and she thought Sonja gave her a bulls–t excuse about her dog.  She lost her s–t when she heard from whatever source (ahem Bravo production or s–t-stirring Luann) told her what Ramona, Sonja and Luann were saying.  When Luann wasn’t yelled at by Aviva for saying the same thing as Ramonja, she had a s–t eating grin on her face which I wanted to wipe off.  I hate when Lu acts like her s–t don’t stink.  Aviva came to the island in the middle of everyone’s good time and s–t on it. Ok, I got the s–t out of my system and I’m going to start feeling bad for Aviva just like I felt bad for Kelly.

LuAnn de Lesseps

Character counts and honesty matters.

Of all people, you’re the one saying this? Hah!

I’m sorry I concocted a story about my “Italian friends” coming back to the house.

Only because you were caught.

 I admit that my problem is the cover-up not the crime. I can assure you once again that nothing happened with Tomas.

Yeah, whatever.  Get an STD test.

Aviva was stressed out when she arrived so when she confronted the girls, she went a little overboard.

A little overboard?  She capsized the whole boat!

How I got dragged into this mess is a mystery to me but if Ramona can pin her outlandish behavior on someone else, she does. I felt bad for Reid because he didn’t deserve the welcome he received and he came to St. Barts only because Aviva needed him and Carole invited him.

This is why Luann is a snake.

Of course when a man arrives to stay in a house filled with women the dynamics change, but I would never have asked Reid to leave. When I commented on how Ramona felt, I didn’t think my words would become a focal point for Ramona’s displaced anger. It was a “kill the messenger” kind of moment.

You started the s–tstorm!

Ramona Singer

LuAnn was trying to be composed when Tomas came over. We all knew she had him over the night before. All this talk of her Italian friends? LuAnn really needed to give it up. It was becoming Italian-gate. French-gate. No it’s LuAnn-gate!

It’s fun making Luann sweat isn’t it?
Sonja was on a mission to make Tomas hers that night, and LuAnn was not too happy about that. I couldn’t help myself but to flirt and tease with Tomas and LuAnn was not happy about that either!

If he “toured the house” with Luann, he’ll “tour the house” with anybody.

It was always understood that if Aviva came to St Barths, Reid would stay at another place and not with all of us. Now you have LuAnn the s–t stirrer claiming I wanted to throw Reid out. LuAnn herself had said the dynamics would change and now she’s pinning this all on me?!?

You did ask around “who’s going to ask Reid to leave” which wasn’t nice and that was one of the things that set Aviva off. But Aviva’s rage was out of control and is still out of control.

We were all accepting her and Reid anyway Aviva wanted. It still wasn’t enough for her. She wouldn’t give it up. I am not pleased how she spoke to Sonja and me. She was very critical and judgmental. Aviva has two sets of rules: one for her father and one for Sonja and me. You will continue to see Aviva being relentless with us and her displaced anger and contrived stories in the next few episodes.

Yeah we see it.

Big Brother 14 by NoMoreDrama

Last Sunday Ian nominated Frank and Jenn for eviction.   The logical choice of who to send home first is Frank – who is a contest superstar – and the obvious choice to vote out now that they have a chance.  Ian knows Frank will come after him if he survives the week.  The only thing going in Frank’s favor is that he can’t play for Head of Household on Thursday – having given up his chance as part of a veto contest.

But first – there’s the veto.  Dan interviews that he doesn’t feel bad swearing (he doesn’t say he swore on his bible but I think he did) that he’d take Frank to the final 2 and then breaking his word.  Frank interviews that he feels safe because he’s in a solid alliance with Danielle, Dan, and Jenn.  Well – one of the three isn’t that bad.  Jenn interviews that the pawn is never safe.  Joe doesn’t yell as much in his interview and says he’s worried (although he’d be perfect to take to the final 2).  He talks to Ian because he doesn’t want to be the replacement nominee.  Usually he cooks the HOH breakfast.

Dan interviews that he’s lying about his alliance with Frank.  He’s getting a little full of himself – and it may come back to bite him when they vote for a winner.  I don’t remember him acting like this the season he won.

They are halfway through the show before they start the Veto competition.  This is one thing that bugs me about this show – this competition was played on Saturday and seems like old news by now – but I guess they don’t have much to show.  It’s another dirty, slippery, physical competition with the backyard made to look like a corn field – with some sort of alien giving instructions.  Dan wins the veto – but the surprise is Jenn comes in third instead of last.  As payback for saving him last week, Dan takes Jenn off the block – but convinces Ian that it was his idea.  Joe is nominated in his place.  The plan is still to evict Frank.  Frank has no clue that Dan isn’t working with him.  It’s almost sad how clueless Frank is.   I don’t think I like Dan at all anymore.  He’s getting way too arrogant.  But he is playing a good game so far.

This is all a setup to the live show tomorrow, where someone will be out of the door within the first 15 minutes, and then they’ll play a fast-forward and a second houseguest will be sent packing.  It’s time to pick up the pace of this show – they’ve got to be finished before the fall TV season starts.

Melissa Gorga is out promoting her new single “I just wanna”, which hits the stores September 9th.   She was on Ryan Seacrest show and shared a clip – hopefully autotuned – which you can hear from this link on RealityTea:

http://www.realitytea.com/2012/09/05/audio-melissa-gorgas-i-just-wanna-plus-jacqueline-laurita-shares-more-about-her-sons-autism/

LuAnn de Lesseps is out hawking a line of tabletop and dinnerwear items – as part of her class with the countess act.  She was in Miami and did an interview – with this priceless gem coming out of her mouth when asked about her title:

“I mean, I don’t go around calling myself ‘The Countess.’ But when making restaurant reservations it comes in handy, and it’s fun for my friends.”

Okay – but we’ve all heard her tell Bethenny to introduce her as the Countess – and it’s the only thing that she has going for her on the show.  She’s milking it for a little more than dinner reservations.  Read the full interview here:  http://www.pbpulse.com/news/entertainment/television/real-housewives-nyc-star-countess-luann-de-lesseps/nR35D/

And then in another article about the Countess, RadarOnline has a source that confirms what we have all been thinking – that Jacques suspects that LuAnn cheated on him.  DUH! If nothing else she out right lied to him on the phone.  Both equally bad in my book.  She can call it a little white lie as much as she wants – but liar liar pants on fire.

“LuAnn is blaming the producers of the show, saying they edited it to make it look like she cheated. Things are VERY strained between Jacques and LuAnn right now because he just doesn’t know if he can trust her. If she lied about just a mundane fact regarding who she brought back to the house, what else could she be lying about?” says RadarOnline’s source.  What the source said.

Jaqueline Laurita is opening up a little more about her son’s autism diagnosis.  Even with this serious topic, people are trying to make it about Jaqueline’s feud with co-star Teresa rather than Jaqueline – but twisting Jacqueline’s words.  Jaqueline explains in the interview that she has known for about 18 months – as have her friends and castmates – but that she chose to keep it off the show.  Since opening up in People, all of her castmates have reached out except Teresa, which Jaqueline says is to be expected.  Yes – the reaching out in question is about going public – not about finding out about the child’s autism.  I do think that Teresa has the right to be done – after all the issues between the two of them.

‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’ mom talks about her son’s autism; says Teresa 

According to The Dish on Bravo’s website – NeNe Leakes has teamed up with Kim Kardashian to sell her shoe for a charity.  For once it’s an affordable offering from a housewife, selling at less than $45.  The connection with Kim is that it will be sold on Kim’s ShoeDazzle.com line.

NeNe Leakes continues to make news, reminding viewers of her New Normal premiere next Monday.  It’ll be a back to back night for the New Normal – with the Premier followed immediately by episode 2.  The New Normal is by the producers of Glee, who were impressed with NeNe’s guest starring role as a swim coach last year.  It’s picked up a little buzz by being panned by some stations in Utah due to what they consider inappropriate content for family viewing.  Nothing like a little controversy to bring in viewers.

Lisa Vanderpump is in New York for Fashion Week – tweeting that she’ll be at Loehmann’s Chelsea store tonight (6th) with Gigster walking the runway.  She says to come say hi.  If I lived in NY I just might do that.

Proving that she never runs out of ways to spend Bobby Zarin’s money, Jill Zarin – ex housewife and all around poor sport – is debuting a jewelry line.  She used the opportunity to bash Ramona Singer – who has had her own jewelry line out for several years.  Jill’s line will be at Lord and Taylor – and looks about as overdone and garish as you’d expect from her.  http://www.toofab.com/2012/08/15/ex-real-housewife-jill-zarin-blasts-costar-debuts-jewelry-line/

The actual line is here: http://www.jillzarinjewelry.com/

Jill will be at Lord and Taylor at their Flagship Store in New York today (the 6th) from 6-8 pm debuting her collection and signing autographs.  Click the link above for details.

Cynthia Bailey has been tweeting about her modeling school a lot lately.  She seems to be having a fashion pageant this weekend in Atlanta.  The pageant is for girls ages 10-18 (no Honey Boo Boo).  The link (if you want to register) is here:  http://missrenaissancepageant.com/  I wonder if her sister is helping her.

Tamra Barney has given an interview explaining why she was chosen for the Housewives.  Tamra claims that she filled out the online interview as a joke – giving silly answers, not submitting any photos, and not showing up for a casting call.  Yet she got a call from the producers.

http://www.examiner.com/article/tamra-barney-reveals-why-she-was-chosen-to-be-on-real-housewives

Kim Zolciak’s daugher has tweeted a picture of the new mother – showing us that Kim is already back in shape.  Kim gave birth to her fourth child August 15, 2012.  Three weeks later – she looks great.

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. It looks like rain in MD. Have a great day.

  2. Rebecca says:

    Great, great recaps today!

    Perhaps we should repost RamonaCoaster’s piece with the new word of the week. Here’s what I mean:

    “So this luann happened in your head. Luann, your worse than I thought. Next time let the luann happen so you’ll have a good reason to explode (that’s if your still on the show next season).” Orson that is genius.

    Second – holy crap on a cracker, Jill’s jewelry is awful, gaudy, tasteless, styleless, and all around luanny. What is this lunatic thinking?

  3. Rebecca says:

    Oh and sorry, but headlines like this “’Real Housewives of New Jersey’ mom talks about her son’s autism; says Teresa Giudice didn’t reach out” show that is it Jacqueline making it about Teresa, not Teresa’s fans. If Jacqueline would quit bashing Teresa, people would quit bringing her up to Jacqueline.

    • In Jaq’s defense – about 5 places published the interview – and all chose different headlines. I don’t think Jaq was making it about T – she was just answering a direct question. The press is always stirring things up between them.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        good to know

      • Rebecca says:

        She wasn’t asked specifically about Teresa in that article. She obviously offered the information.

        Also – she claims she put Nicholas on a gluten-free diet for his autism. Being autistic doesn’t mean you have celiac disease.

        She shows time and time again that she can’t put two and two together. Her husband is a very weak man if he can’t control the crazy she keeps putting out to the press.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Forgive me for being ignorant when it comes to this question-I have never dealt with Autism personally. According to Jac her husband prays daily for theirs sons recovery-I didn’t know that you can “recover” from Autism. I know that there are reports about different foods and so on helping to make different progressions but is there actual recovery? Im very confused as I never heard someone say this before.

          • Trudie says:

            I was going to comment on the word “recover.” I hope it was just a poor choice of words and not an expectation. To my knowledge, there is no recovery from autism.

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              I’m with you, Trudie. I’m hoping (and thinking) that Jac simply mis-spoke when she used the word “recover” and does not actually believe that Nicholas can be “cured” of autism. Maybe she just meant that, with the appropriate help, he can reach his full potential and live his best life possible.

              One of my brothers has Aspberger’s Syndrome (which is on the autism spectrum/a form of autism), and he always will. He does have a decent quality of life, though.

          • Orson says:

            Jill, it’s very doubtful that one can “recover” from autism. There are therapies (speech therapy, for one) that are helpful and coping tools that those on the autism spectrum can be taught to use. And there are tools for the family members to learn to help live with someone on the autism spectrum. People with autism and aspergers aren’t sick. They’re just different. That’s all.

            • MamaZ says:

              From Temple Grandin’s website
              “I have read enough to know that there are still many parents, and yes, professionals too, who believe that ‘once autistic, always autistic.’ This dictum has meant sad and sorry lives for many children diagnosed, as I was in early life, as autistic. To these people, it is incomprehensible that the characteristics of autism can be modified and controlled. However, I feel strongly that I am living proof that they can.

              Note that she doesn’t say you can recover. But a person with Autism can lead a fulfilling and productive life.

            • Powell says:

              Right. Holly Robinson Peete and Jenni McCarthy’s sons have been in mainstream classes w/their age group and peers for years. Toni Braxton’s son has also progressed w/therapies. I don’t believe they say their sons are cured. I remember when Jenni broke up w/Jim Carey she said she had kept her house when they lived together because her son had his therapy at her house cause it helped him that it was familiar, a place he always had,and that when she & Jim broke up her son wouldn’t have a huge adjustment since he always had his home.

              • Trudie says:

                From a Time Magazine interview with Jenny McCarthy:

                What’s the best prognosis for autistic kids?
                For a seriously autistic kid, the best prognosis might be getting into a mainstream school without being too much of a shadow. For a moderately autistic kid the best prognosis is full recovery.

                Read more: http://www.time.com/time/health/article/0,8599,1888718,00.html#ixzz25iYx1G5L

                • cc101 says:

                  I think she has used the word ‘recovery’ several times and I think it is a misleading word to use. Having a good quality of life and ‘recovering’ and 2 entirely different things.

                  • Lady Chatterley says:

                    I agree. It’s the same thing w/learning disabilities – you always have them, but you can learn to compensate for them.

        • Lady Chatterley says:

          We don’t know that she wasn’t asked about Teresa – I suspect that she was: “Have your castmates been supportive? Who has reached out to you? All of them? Including Teresa?”

        • Scorpiosue1102 says:

          As someone who has family members on the autism spectrum, it is said that speech and behavior are helped by being on a gluten free diet. The gluten may be processed differently in those on the spectrum. A gluten free diet has not been supported by the medical community (because it is so hard to get all gluten out of a diet) but parents still do it. In reality, it has nothing to do with celiac disease.

          • Powell says:

            I’ve heard that.

          • At my daughters therapy clinic, they have tons of books parents can borrow on gluten free-casin free diets.
            I also know with epilepsy some parents put their kids on a modified aikens diet, even though it’s proven there are some doctors who try to encourage parents to go the med route.

        • I know a lot of parents of autistic kids who have their kids on a gluten free and casin free diet. It does help with some kids and not with others. A diagnosis of autism is really more about ‘behaviors’ (mainly sensory based) but its symptomatic of something else medically going on (down syndrome, epilepsy or something in their metabolic pathway, ect).

        • LaineyLainey says:

          I didn’t read the article but, seriously? Gluten free diet as a treatment for autism?

          • Sus says:

            I assume it’s sort of like adding a kind of oil to a kid’s diet to prevent or lesson ALD like in the movie Lorenzo’s Oil.

      • PJ says:

        Isn’t that exactly what they all bashed Teresa for?

      • Powell says:

        So true.

  4. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Good morning all
    Ramonacoaster-you are the SH*T-your blog re-caps are amazing and I love them. You add the perfect amount of comic relief to the crap they write-great job. Thanks for the laughs!!!!
    BB-Poor Takashi -I love him!!!
    Lots of HW’s are in NYC for Fashion Week…wish I were going to a show-never have but would love to be there!!!

  5. Eastbayca says:

    Morning,
    I did some shallow digging on Aviva (Teichner) Drescher….this woman was a model for 15 years, lived in Paris for 2 years, traveled to London, Jamaica (where her father bought a property with a private beach so she could run around in a bikini because she was self conscious when it came to her leg) etc.
    Had surgery to shortened her stump without general anesthesia just epidural. Called her mum in the middle of the surgery to let her know all was going well and she could her the saw cutting the bone, she was awake for surgery apparently that is how she wanted it.
    Meet Harry at about 26-28 through friends…..Aviva in her teens and 20s sounds so much stronger than Aviva in her 40s.

    When did her phobias begin?
    PS: Her leg was still a major player in the stories I read, but she doesn’t want to bring attention to it!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      IMO, phobias likely always there but kicked into high gear when Harry kicked her to the curb. Now she is on a show with not one but two women who bedded him…..and a snake in her ear about another one….. and clinging to her current husband for dear life. She is sad to watch and Bravo is delighted to have a crazier replacement for KKB.

      • Eastbayca says:

        I believe Bravo got a one for the price of two (KKB and JZ) with Aviva.

        • kendo says:

          At least in her blog, she is kinda of offering an apology!
          I was kinda of liking her, but now it just seems sad that she’s on the show with all of her “Sybil” showing.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          I think they got a twofer too.

          • Called A Princess... says:

            Bravo wants the drama. Aviva did say that the phobia’s really kicked in when she had children. That is what she said!

    • The Tin Man says:

      I don’t think she’s nearly as phobic as she’s letting on. She’s playing a role, and she’s using these supposed extreme fears to get attention and to be in control. She made the entire trip to St. Barts about her, and when she didn’t get the adulation she thought she deserved, she spewed venom and got attention that way. Look, she’s the center of attention now, isn’t she? I don’t like flying either, but I do it when necessary, although I never get the window seat like Aviva did, and if I do have to take the window seat, I pull the shade. So I’m suspicious of Aviva and her phobias. But I think the reason she insisted Ramona and Sonja go fawn all over her husband was just to be in control of them, to make them do what she said, just like she uses her “phobias” to get what she wants.

      • Lisa Renee says:

        Tin man, ding ding ding! I call BS on being able to sit next to the window & never lowered the shade. Exact opposite of how I behave on a flight. Also missing, the humiliation from being so nutz. Nothing about her behavior from fear of flying rings true to me. I apologize profusely & thank my hubby for not throwing me off the plane. She is too nasty to be truly phobic. After reading the comments the last few days I am leaning toward it being all for attention, Lisa

      • Lady Chatterley says:

        Yes, this is my read on her, as well. Everyone must cater to me, because I have fears, anxiety, a victim of a tragic accident. Don’t draw attention to it – but, I will constantly draw attention to it, in order to ensure that I am in control of all circumstances.

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        I said the same thing last night. She may have some degree of anxiety/panic disorder and/or phobias; however, I do not think they are to the degree that she claims. I also think she uses them to manipulate and control those around her.

        • I have noticed she doesn’t want OTHER people to point out her missing limb aka Ramona, but she mentions it EVERY chance she gets. UGH big deal you lost your leg. You have 2 legs and a swimming leg. What about the “children” watching who just have a stump or leg that is not as functional? Oh that’s right she had a charity soul bike ride to raise money.
          Oh Paleez I’m so done with this emotionally crippled woman. More air time…oh gee how fun, so you look like a complete moron for yelling at your “bravo” friends. I’d rather watch Ramonja run around all day acting crazy because they are entertaining.
          JMO,
          Diana

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            I hear ya, Diana!

            • Called A Princess... says:

              LOL. I just love how we are talking about the degree of someone else’s illness, on a reality show. Reminds me of the scar scene in the movie ‘Jaws.’ Either the character has a problem or she is a malingering and since I do not really know her, I can only speculate. I think it is easier to destroy what we do not understand, as humans then to be thoughtful of the needs of strange personalities. It seems to be contagious these days to quickly judge and dismiss. For me it does not read as very entertaining. In other worlds and words, like Kelly, Taylor or Kim, from BH, Aviva should not be on the show. The truth is that she really did not want to be on the trip and had an attitude when she arrived and a casino erupted. I will say this, if she had not been there Sonja and Ramona would have found another way to drop a bomb on the estate. It is in their nature, after all. IMO.

          • lovemamaearth says:

            I don’t see Aviva mentioning it all the time.

            I agree with Lisa that if she was so afraid of flying she probably wouldn’t sit by the window. Bravo wanted drama and they made sure they all brought it. It paid for the fancy vacation spot.

    • T-Rex says:

      My opinion, the phobias kicked in the minute she married Reid. Harry her former husband was schtooping anything that moved in Manhattan apparently going through the who’s who list of social climbers, and Aviva did not want that repeated in this marriage. So she is that Clingy, needy, can’t think for herself kinda broads now, which means stick a fork in this marriage as well, because that sh*t gets old in a relationship.

    • Lisa Renee says:

      Good morning EastBay, that was very interesting. From living abroad to wanting to stay awake for her surgery. Now, she is a hot mess, has no problem dragging everyone into whatever has her freaked out at the moment & down right nasty. Thats a long way to fall. Lisa

      • MamaZ says:

        Maybe her mother’s death was a trigger? Or even having childrens. I changed a lot after the birth of my first child. Already a cautious person I started seeing dangers everywhere and in everything. I was and still am overprotective. I am better than than when they were small but it has taken a lot of hard work and introspection to get there.

        And I’m afraid my behavior is at least partly responsible for my daughters anxiety issues. My father and best friend died within months of each other and my daughter took both losses really hard. And she has developed many fears. Fears that she probably subconsiously remembers me verbalizing when she was little.
        Death seems to be the common factor for both of us. I was afraid of the possible deaths of my children. For her it was the actual deaths of people she loved.

        And I have to admit that there were a few times that my fears caused me to have emotional meltdowns in which I was less than kind. But they were after seeing people putting my children into what I believed were hazardous situations. So I think you can be nuts and nasty, lol.

        But I am not excusing Aviva’s behavior. She owes everyone an apology just like I did when I overreacted.

        • T-Rex says:

          Mamaz, I get the change of behaviour when children are involved, but her first child was with her Ex-husband the philanderingHarry, and she didn’t seem to have phobias when married to Harry, these are all since she found out Harry’s choice of sport was infidelity. Then once Reid came in the picture she all of a sudden had phobias, it’s just odd

          • Sam says:

            Some spouses bring out the best in their partners, others bring out the worst. Given that Aviva was once able to do a lot of things confidently and on her own, it’s clear that being with Reid is not good for her.

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              Hmm….I wonder why that is. He seems like such a nice and stable guy. If your theory is true (and it very well could be), I wonder what it is about him or his behavior that brings out the worst in her.

              • Called A Princess... says:

                We have no real idea of what Aviva’s real problems are or when they started. This is not a heath show on the Discovery Channel. It is Andy Cohen’s Bravo Madhouse Edition 3. She may have been on med’s at certain times in her life that helped her but stopped working. Also, some have said that Harry left her, but she said that she got tired of the party/fast lifestyle, so we just do not know all the real bats, in her belfry. I do not see her as a simple creature. None of the housewives are. JMHO.

              • Sam says:

                I have a kid who, when he was little, would get way more fearful if we called attention to his fearfulness. It was much better to interact with him as though he wasn’t fearful, which encouraged him to act as if he weren’t scared, which led to him actually not being scared. Today he’s a very calm person who has a calming influence on others.

          • Iowagirl says:

            Do you think Reid is helping her? Calling other women old and fat on national tv makes me wonder how he may be damaging her. His comments are not innocent, she will get older and she knows it.

            • TrashyT says:

              I was liking Reid til I heard that comment on the previews. I am not impressed.

              • Called A Princess... says:

                I would like to see the full scene, not take Bravo’s edit at face value. ‘Treachery in Motion’ should be the Bravo’s tag line. IMO.

        • Boobah says:

          (((MamaZ))) I’m so sorry about your father and best friend. Your daughters fears may not have anything do with your verbalizations of your fears when she was little. There is no anxiety history in my family yet I developed panic disorder in my early 20’s. I just wanted to share that with you. Hope this isn’t presumptuous of me.
          I think some people have emotional meltdowns whether or not they have anxiety issues, life can be hard at times, its normal. Its not the meltdowm that matters, its what you do about it, IMHO. I always apologize after I get snappy also. (um, snappy is a very nice way to state it, btw! 🙂 )
          I believe people are different and no one handles their issues the same. Similar maybe, but not the same. For example, if anyone met me, there is no way that someone could tell I have panic disorder as it doesn’t define me. And I am self aware enough to know when it is coming on, so I try to excuse myself from the situation if I can. On the other hand, sometimes I also excuse myself from situations that have nothing to do with anxiety because I sense nothing good will come from engaging. But there are times that I definitely struggle, just like everyone else. One of my crosses bare is anxiety. But I feel pretty lucky because there are many, many worse things. But I must say that a panic attck is dreadful, at least to me.

          Or maybe I am one giant nut and everyone around me knows but are too scared to tell me! Ya know, like, ” Oh Sh-t!, Here’s comes Boobah…everybody put your game faces on!” There’s always that possibliity.

          Just like you, I don’t excuse Aviva’s bad behavior but I feel for her when it comes to panic disorder.

          • Lisa Renee says:

            Boobah, that was expressed beautifully. I hope it helps MamaZ with her “guilt” with her own child. Panic attacks, your attitude is commendable. I consider that to be one of the worst things to deal with & my heart goes out to anyone who suffers from them. You decided there is alot worse you could be dealing with, very very cool. Lisa

            • Boobah says:

              Oh Lisa! Thats was so sweet. Actually I should thank you because you first spoke about it a few days ago and that helped me speak up! But even better was the discovery of our (and Jill & Detox) humor ways tp deal wit it all!

              So….funny story….days before my wedding, my wedding dress was ruined by a seamtress. To complicate matters, I had a Christmastime wedding (not that many wedding dress shops were open nor seamstresses). Even worse, we had one of the worse blizzards in history the same evening I found out my dress was ruined.

              I was staying at my parents house as my wedding was only one week away, doing all the wedding prep stuff. There I was sitting in the kitchen, the blizzard was awful. I started to talk to my mom about the situation…what the hell was I going to do? Where would I get a dress on such sort notice days after a major holiday. I was panicked! And so it began…full blown panic attack. I mother was scared sh-tless! I was gasping for air, carrying on, making noise like a wild animal. Not one of my finest moments.

              Well, my mom, rather an old school type of broad, grabbed me by the scruff of my neck and threw me out into the blizzard!! She had some strength going on in that moment, because I went flying and landed in a snow bank!

              Well, let me tell you that the panick attack was shocked right out of my system. I couldn’t believe what had just happened! She had never made a habit of tossing her children out of the door before, especially in hazardous weather conditions! WTH?!?

              Needless to say, after a moment, I got up, brushed the snow off myself. Entered the house and muttered, Thanks, I needed that. She responded, Well, I didn’t know what else to do!
              We laughed so hard that we cried! My Dad said we were both nuts.

              Hey, what ever works’s right!?

              • Sus says:

                LOL! What a great story. Panic attack? I’d be ripping the place apart in those circumstances. I’m not sure being thrown out in a blizzard would even help! I don’t mean to make light of it but it has to be a classic memory for your family.

                The Tin Man said it exactly right about Aviva.

              • Sus says:

                So now I have to know… What did you do? New dress? Were you able to get the ruined one fixed? Changing my name to NosyNellie

              • Lisa Renee says:

                OMG Boobah, that is F’in hysterical. Gives a whole new meaning to any port in a storm. No one & I mean no one can snatch us up like our own mom’s. Shocked the panic right out of you, brilliant. You thanking her to boot….I laugh just thinking about your Dad on the sidelines going WTF. Soooo…..what happen with the dress???? Lisa

              • LOL- I am laughing so hard right now. as others mentioned, what happened with the dress. Please, you can’t leave us hanging like that.

                • Boobah says:

                  SUS, RR, and Lisa – Its was hysterical!! I seriously didnt know what happened at first…one minute I wasn’t able to breathe and the next minute I was outside in a snow drift. No jacket or shoes!!! LOL! A panic attack was no match for my Mom! And yeah, my Dad was completely like W.T.F. is wrong with you people?? He left the room! And my mom threw a blanket around me as we laughed!

                  So, my dresss…SUS yes I was so pissed! What was worse was that it was my grandmothers 1949 wedding dress that I was altering a little to fit and changing the neckline slightly. She ruined it!!! It was going to be so beautiful. I am still pissed to this day!

                  Anyway, the blizzard on Saturday was awful – shut everything down. We were hoping by Mon. things would open. They didn’t. Thurday was Christmas eve, Christmas was Friday and my wedding was Sunday. I had three days to find a dress and have it taken in. Most stores were still closed come Tuesday. My mom was hell bent, she even suggested we travel out of state! (I am her first child to get married). Finally she called everywhere. Macy’s was the only place that picked up the phone. She them the story and they went into action mode. Macys was an hour away we raced there. As we walked into the bridal dept., one woman grabbed me, I think at this point I was green from the stress, and said “Don’t worry, youare finding a dress!” Having gotten my size and style from my mother when she called, they had pulled several dresses. And….I FOUND a dress! I just started to sob, to which my mom joined in after she momentarily side-eyed me scared I was going into another panic attack. The saleslady also had several names/numbers of seamtresses that were also told my story and so we went straight to a lovely older woman who fit me right on the spot and worked on my dress throughtout her Christmas! Never had I been more grateful than to that lovely lady and I made sure to tell her so, over and over.

                  So, we picked up my dress the day before my wedding. It fit like a glove. Phew! And I felt the most beautiful I have ever felt!

                  My dress was lovely. It wasn’t exactly my style, but it was beautiful. Strapless, ivory, soft lace and a tasteful train with my cathedral veil. The lace was scalloped at the hemline and the bodice. While I’m not a strapless kinda gal, I pulled it off. Bonus – my hubby said I was a knock out!!!

                  This has become an infamous family story. My mom was quite the superhero that week. (I am sitting here laughing my ass off as I typed all this out – it wasnt as funny then but damn is it funny now).

                  • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                    I’m so glad you were able to get a beautiful dress and, in the end, a funny family memory from something painful. Here’s to making lemonade outta lemons!! 😉

                  • Lisa Renee says:

                    Boobah, I just love a happy ending, thanks for sharing. Amazing your now husband loved the dress & thru the kindness of strangers you were able to pull off a miracle from a wedding story nightmare. Lisa 🙂

                    • Boobah says:

                      Detox, Lisa – I was very lucky that week. Thanks for sharing your funny stories also. This was fun.

                  • I am so glad you found a dress and now have a fantastic story to tell. I would love to see a picture of it. Your mom sounds like a hoot too.

                    I am sorry to hear your grandmothers dress was ruined. I am sure that must have been heart breaking.

                    • Boobah says:

                      Thank you RR. Yes, it did upset me. Especially because we lost her earlier that year. But she was looking out for me, I’m sure of it.
                      I would love to show you a pic. But I have no idea how to post one! Isn’t that so ridiculous that I don’t know how to do that!?! *sigh*

              • Trudie says:

                • Sus says:

                  Ooh, your story got better and better (except the part about Grandma’s dress – awful!)
                  I love hearing things like this. People coming together for a disaster 🙂

                  There was wedding shop around here that burned down. They had 12 brides getting married in 4 days. Other wedding shops made sure those 12 brides had a beautiful dress to wear.

                  • Boobah says:

                    Holy cow! That is awful. Well, I definitely understand what those brides were feeling. Those poor shop owners. They lost their business and probably felt horrible about those brides. That is lovely that other stores stepped in and helped. It really is comforting to hear about people coming together and helping each other.

              • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                Great story! Thanks for sharing that. I’ve had a few panic attacks before. I mentioned it on this blog a few blogs ago. I was going through an incredibly stressful time in my life, and while riding in the passenger side of my Mom’s car, I all of sudden felt extremely claustrophobic and like I needed to escape. So, I had a panic attack that only subsided when I rolled the window down (I guess it made me feel less claustrophobic). My Mom did not know what the hell was going on, and neither did I. She did not mention it to my Dad, and neither did I.

                A couple of months later, it happened again when I was visiting my parents, and I was in the backseat of their car riding to brunch with them. My father was like, “What in the HELL is going ON? Are you CRAZY?” I told him, “I don’t know.” It happens again on the way back home after brunch, and I asked if I can roll my window down, and my Dad says, “Hell, NO!! You are going to pull your sh*t together, Dammit! I mean, sh*t, all we were doing was going to brunch!! Why in the hell would you act like you are having a heart attack over some g*ddamn brunch! That is the craziest sh*t I have ever seen in my life!! I mean, were you scared of the pancakes, the eggs? What in the g*ddamn hell. This is some of the craziest sh*t I have ever seen in my LIFE!!!”

                Did I mention that my Father is a “pull yourself up by your bootstraps,” “get it together,” not very supportive guy when it comes to some things?

                He then looks at my Mother and says, “You see this craziness. You know she gets this from YOUR side of the family, don’t you?!!?” My Mom cursed him out, and we all walked back into their house pissed off and went into separate areas.

                I saw my G.P. afterwards, and she was so supportive. She told me with everything stressful I had going on in my life at that time, it was not uncommon for panic attacks or extreme anxiety to kick in with some people (People react to stress in different ways). She prescribed Xanax XR, which is a time-released form of Xanax (She says she REFUSED to EVER prescribe the regular Xanax because she felt it was habit-forming, and, in her opinion, too problematic), and told me to take it only as needed.

                I did, and, knock wood. Things have been o.k. ever since. However, I STILL prefer to be the DRIVER, rather than the passenger in a vehicle, and I STILL prefer to sit in the front seat, rather than the back. I guess my preference for driving has to do with me feeling like I’m in control or something. Who knows?

                We’ve ALL got our sh*t with us (i.e., baggage). It is us up to us to learn how to manage it, though. JMHO

                And Boobah, I want to know what happened with your wedding dress too?

                Go figure.

                • Boobah says:

                  Bwahahaha!! Omg Detox…that is so funny…you’re Dad asked if you were afraid of the pancakes!!! ROFLMAO! I can just picture your Dad’s face…like he was totally horrified!
                  I bet any amount of money my Dad said the same thing to my mom – that I get it from her side. Only I bet my Dad didnt say a word until after my wedding. I really think my mom would have killed him and threw his body in the same snow bank she threw my ass into!
                  Awesome story.
                  I agree, people handle things in different ways. I am sorry to hear that you had so much stress at the time. I swear, life can really clobber a person. Thank G-d we can at least find the humor. Sounds like you have an excellent G.P.

                  • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                    My G.P. is the best. She’s actually 3 years younger than me (38) with a set of twin boys and a girl. I really lucked out when I found her. I think my Dad was scared. He does not really know how to respond when he is afraid. So, he goes into stubborn “Dammit, I’m going to fix it or ELSE, whether you like it or not” mode.

                • Powell says:

                  Detox I hope you’re better these days. I’m sorry but I laughed at your father saying your just going to GD bunch & are you afraid of the eggs. LOL.

                  MamaZ I’m sorry your daughter is going thru this. It sounds like you and the family are supportive and taking care of her so that’s good. Hopefully time will also help her.
                  I understand what you’re talking about w/the changes w/the weather & mood changes. I don’t have that problem but I’m kinda sad that Fall/Winter is coming. Over the yrs I dread the cold weather. I told my mother once that I understand how some people become depressed in the cold dreary months.

                  I hope everyone will be ok. 🙂

        • Lisa Renee says:

          MamaZ, sending you virtual hugs to you & your daughter. I think death, like we both experienced, kicks anxiety into overdrive & if you are controlling by nature takes control freak to a whole other level. I was lucky in the sense when ash’s dad died, she was too young to remember & no where near old enough to process & remember my reactions. As for the nuts & nasty combo I can see how that can lead to saying things in the heat of the moment. If your reaction is from fear for your children, that is tough to keep in check. Most of us are irrational when it comes to our kids on a good day. Since chatting with you I believe you would offer up a sincere apology post incident, one that didn’t involve Rush. I have never gotten nasty with my family, even as they are laughing in my face, because I feel so bad about my behavior, it keeps me humble & reminds me I am so loved that they put up with me. Piss me off when I am not traveling & I will cut a bitch. Lisa

      Eastbayca that’s what I thought. I didn’t know she modeled but I knew she went to school, traveled etc on her own for years. I think she may have had some phobias in her early yrs due to the accident but fought them. I think when she married Reid she didn’t feel she needed to be strong, that she had someone that would be strong for her but she’s limiting herself & its not good for her kids.

      • MamaZ says:

        Thank you everyone. ((((Lynnfam))))

        I have never really talked about my daughter’s problem here because it felt a little unfair to her. But it has been so bad recently and the storyline on RHNY just led the conversation there. I appreciate everyone’s support. It’s hard not to feel guilt when it’s one of your children but I also don’t want to make it about me.

        Boobah I would never consider that you were presumptuous! I loved the snowbank story, lol. I started running when I got off anti anxiety meds a while back. It’s hard to be anxious when you are exhausted.

        Lisa Renee – My apologies never included Rush, that’s for sure.

        • Boobah says:

          (((MamaZ))) I’m sorry it’s bad for her right now. If you ever want to chat more, let me know.
          For me, I always feel better when people just accept my anxiety for what it is. When I feel like I have to hide it, then I get all worried about it which can actually set it off. Anxiety is one of the most common emotional ailments and easiest to treat. It just takes time. You seem so compassionate and kind that your daughter will find a way to get through her anxiety. I know what you mean, this NY storyline is hitting close to home.
          I also exercise. (Not as regularly as I should) It does help me too.
          oxox

          • MamaZ says:

            Boobah – A standing ovation for the compassionate people at Macy’s and the kindness of the seamstress!!

            Thanks again for your support and the offer to talk. I will no doubt take you up on that. School starting is tough for my daughter. She is a great student and has a ton of friends but for since losing her Grandpa and Mom2, as she called her, she panics if she can’t speak to me whenever she wants. She’s convinced that something is going to happen to her father/brother/me and she will be at school and unable to help. She’s knows it’s irrational but can’t control the thoughts. She will calm down a little in a week or two but when the clocks change the anxiety will ramp up again. Even when she was little she reacted strongly to seasonal changes. Do you noticed and connection between the seasons or time change and your anxieties?

            • MamaZ says:

              sorry, should read -notice any connection.

            • Boobah says:

              I sure do notice that MamaZ! Before I had a better handle on it, night was very tough and found that I needed lights on to fall asleep. Seasonal changes were hard also, especially when the daylight hours shortened. I imagine that starting school is a difficult adjustment even though its not much different than last year for her. Familiarity seems to be key. And anything that distracted me was always key. For me, I would go into organization mode.

              Anxiety, for me, is a feeling of rawness. A wise man shared with me that he equated anxiety with having a very bad sunburn – even the touch of a feather can hurt.

              Without a doubt, panic disorder is difficult. But it is treatable. Your daughter got knocked for a loop and she needs some time and help to balance it all out.

              (((MamaZ))) I know it must feel horrible to watch your daughter suffer through this.

    Good morning. Great recaps. I don’t know if anyone else has brought this up, so if they have, mea culpa. Last night I was watching slutty island, again. When the argument/lecture/diatribe with Aviva and Ramonja in the kitchen was playing out, I noticed something. As I was watching, I noticed Aviva sounded exactly like Joan Crawford (in the movie about her) when she was screaming, “No wire hangers” .Hmmm, what is it about hangers and vacations?

    • catmom1 says:

      Oh crud, just reread this. Should have said Aviva sounded like Joan Crawford when Joan was screaming, “No wire hangers.”

      • Lady Chatterley says:

        Knew exactly what you were talking about. 🙂

        And I believe that Joan Crawford was generally considered to have a Borderline Personality Disorder….Aviva’s exhibiting similar traits.

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        THIS!! When she screamed “IT’S ABOUT THE CHILDREN WITH NO LEGS!!!!!” and Ramona and Sonja were looking at her in terror, I INSTANTLY thought of “NO WIRE HANGERS!!!!”

        I did not know Joan Crawford had BPD. Well, you learn something new every day. I mentioned the other day that one of my Mother’s sister’s has it, and Aviva’s behavior reminds me VERY much of my Aunt’s antics/stunts/behavior/tantrums.

        Oh, and Catmom, I caught that reference to hangers and vacations (Thank You, Cindy Barshop. That was about the only memorable thing Cindy did during her entire one season as a housewife). Funny. 🙂

    • Powell says:

      Hmm. Cindy Barshop, remember her?, went off about hangers on last season’s vaca.

      • catmom1 says:

        Exactly what I was referring to Powell, good catch.

      • Mary E says:

        another wacko

        • Sam says:

          Yup, it seems like Bravo’s casting department has been told to include at least one crazy person in any given season.

          • Called A Princess... says:

            BPD is not as rare as most would like to think. Diana, Princess of Wales and Marilyn Monroe were thought to have it.

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              I had heard that Diana was thought to have it. I had not heard that about Marilyn Monroe. With Diana, I wondered if the author of the book who claimed she had it was PRO-Royal Family and ANTI-Diana or simply Neutral.

              Princess Diana did allegedly always say that she feared that the Royal Family would try to portray her as “crazy” and try to keep and/or take her children away from her somehow using THAT (that she was “crazy” as the basis). She also allegedly often said that she feared they would have her killed (Shrug).

              • Called A Princess... says:

                Diana pushed her then 60 year old step mother down a staircase at a wedding party for her brother. She also had this insane need to trust all the wrong people at just the right time. I think she was a survivor of a lot of emotion abuse and disappointment at an early age. It followed her into adulthood because that is how she saw her personal world. I think the her children brought her the only personal peace in her adult lifetime. She had demons around every corner, some by her making and some by others designs. The Royals allegedly, at on point, wanted to have Diana committed to a mental institution, but the fear was that it would be leaked out and they again look really bad. The PR cost would be too high. I think murder was cheaper! FYI. High profile murder is called Sanctioning by the powers that be. It happens more then we think. JMHO.

    Good Morning Everyone! Thanks BB, NoMoreDrama, RamonaCaster (Hysterical comments!) and Boston! You guys are doing a fantastic job!

    I’ve been reading you every morning! Lynn would be so proud of this amazing group of Bloggers!

    I will be participating more. For now, I feel more to be lurking… Everyone grieves differently. Love you all and thanks for being in my life!

  8. chismosa says:

    Hi everyone, i have not been on here since it started, just trying to figure out if this is the final place to go to ‘talk’ every day? This is the ‘new’ Lynn site?

    Hope everyone is doing well. Have to catch up now on the blog~~~~~

    • BB says:

      Hi, Chismosa. This is where most of the LynnFam landed and where all the regular shows get recapped. There is also a Chat Room set up by Boston. I’ll have to go pull the link for you if you want to go there too. You’ll have to register with your e-mail before you can enter.

    • Lady Chatterley says:

      Chismosa, missing you during the NJ discussion! Great to see you 🙂

      • chismosa says:

        ooh thanks! i saw the recap quickly and saw it was leaning very pro-Teresa so i just didn’t get on the chat for that…
        but thank you

        • Lady Chatterley says:

          You should check out the polls that NMD and BB have been doing – there’s still a good bit of balance here – the discussion just gets a little out of balance. Jump in!

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      Hi Chismosa! (*waving*)

      • Hi Chimosa,
        I’m not Pro Tre. I’m Pro no fighting anymore. I say put all the RHONJ women in a room with a toaster oven, blk water, canned spam, spinach, pork rinds, 3 day old pizza and chez whiz. Give them 60 minutes to create something the Top Chef judge’s won’t vomit up in 2 seconds (like Jeff Lewis) and declare a winner of the season!!
        No using twitter or the internet to help either.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          I’m Pro-No-Fighting anymore myself, Diana. I just hope that next season they all stay away from each other and keep each other’s name out of each other’s mouths. I don’t know how possible a show like that would be but….I cannot STAND what this show has turned into!

  9. Sus says:

    I just have to say – NoMoreDrama, you are doing a great job with the blog. Lynn is smiling down on you 🙂

    Aviva said: “It is my constitution to welcome people in any home no matter what.”

    I need to scape up a dirty old man to be on the welcoming committee when I have guests. I didn’t realize that my constitution needs to be revised. I need someone to grope guests and say inappropriate, disgusting things in order to be welcoming.

  10. RealHousewifeVA says:

    Great blogs everyone!
    I think Dan totally deserves to win BB again, arrogance and all! He was kinda arrogant his season as well (lying to Ollie to get HOH, then playing the veto roulette game to turn them all on eachother). He also basically orchestrated Keesha’s eviction but made her take out her anger on Memphis only. Then in the end, he had a clean sweep for the votes, which I believe is the first time in BB history that had happened. I remember jerry saying that Dan was always nice and polite (saying good morning, good night, etc) even while he was scheming and backstabbing. lol

    All in all, the guy is a freakin’ genius at this game. He knows that he can play off the whole “honesty” thing, and they are all eating it up. He also is the type of guy who gets to know everyone on a personal level, and people begin to trust him.
    The way he got himself off the block last week and now pretty much everyone trusts him and he’s not a target at all? Amazing.

    I’m a big fan of BB and the people who play it well without being total assholes (like Boogie), and he’s just really great at it, IMO.

    • Lisa Renee says:

      Hi RealhousewifeVA, i am a huge dan fan. Yes, it was the only time anyone has swept the votes when he won. I remember vividly when Jerry voted & why Dan is a master of the social game. Dan’s funeral & Britt’s reaction on the feeds was riveting. The parts that were on CBS made for one of the best episodes ever. It will go down in BB history for best dead man walking & getting someone to use veto on him move. I think because of the last time he played, when he swore on the bible he meant it, this summer Dan is very honest in the DR’s that his word means nothing. Dan is playing a very different game. I can imagine as each person who gets to jury house will be greeted by Britt saying I told y’all to be careful of the Dan Mist. She had his number. I can not imagine him getting to F2 with anybody & not winning. I agree with NMD (great blog) he is more arrogant tham last time, but it’s not bothering me, his has mad skills, without being a Boogie. If Frank finally run out of lives it will be interesting to see who gets stabbed first. Just hoping for no Jenn, Joe or Shane in F2. I am hoping dani is the third to last one out just to see her cry, good times. I am wild for Ian he went from McCreepy Creepster to endearing & confident. Giving Frank the bird was hysterical, whipping off his glassess to confront Frank, priceless. Ian may not win but he is leaving the BB house with more swagger than he could ever imagine. Best season in a long time IMO, Lisa

      • Sus says:

        At this point, Dan deserves to win. The dead man walking thing was brilliant. I wonder if being secluded from everyone is really how he came up with the idea. BB14 has come from being my least favorite season to my favorite season. Britt’s goodbye message to Boogie to Ian masterminding getting Boogie out.

        Saying all that, I hope Ian wins. “McCreepy Creepster to endearing & confident” is right on target.

        • Chicago Diane says:

          I really believed that Brittany had a good shot as Dan was leaving, but then was amazed and disappionted that she offered no counter attack to his plan at the funeral process . I know she didn’t want to cause Danielle any issues but she should have gone back to reverse Dan’s arguments and point out all the reasons to move on him- she acually made it much easier for him than it should have been. While Frank has been miraculous at the Veto competitions, he does not have the moxy for this game and really needed Boogie/now Dan to lead him- which his why he is leaving tonight. I am so sorry Brittany didn’t call Dan on his bluff- it changed everything. it seems like , with Frank gone, while it will play out in whatever way it does, none of the remaining group- besided Ian- and he is not as clear thinking as he should be, given his background- are thinking this through/mounting any kind of real game to offset Dan. Brittany did the hard work and paid the price=- she is the one who engineered Boogie’s departure- and that was sorely needed. What an a—-. .

  11. T-Rex says:

    Since I have been a bit MIA(and frankly no longer want to read, post or hear about anything RHNJ), stepped back in to say how much I am loving RHNY. First off, so far comparing Scary Island to Slutty Island by the Coaster was stupid, they are not even the same. Aviva is a drama queen, needy and certainly wants to be attached to the hip of her husband lest his “member” fall into another woman if she isn’t there, but she is no where near the cray-cray of KKB. Aviva, we get IT, your first husband cheated, and you basically follow your husband around 24/7 so that he doesn’t for a millisecond have a chance to stray, you are going to push the man out the door, men can only take the “needy-Bitch” act for so long, then they bolt.

    Sonja, don’t know where to begin, but a twelve step program is clearly in her future, she is that drunk friend we all had in college that you can’t take anywhere, they are fun the first half the evening and then becomes your albatross.

    RamonaCoaster, HATING you even more by the minute, you are one catty, shit-stirring, two-faced, can give it out, but can’t take it, almost stalker now. UGH I hope you are on the way out cannot stand you at all, you are the kind of person I would NEVER want to hang around with. Explains how you and the LUNATIC were friends for so long, you are both nuts!

    Lu-Man who got caught with your hand down fauxJohnnyDepps pants and now you can’t weasel your way out of this one. Good for you, you got to lie to PepeLepew that you can get pregnant, all the while the tubes were tied years ago, now you are lying about your tryst with FauxDP, oh and did anyone else notice the daggers coming from her eyes to SonjaTheDrunkenSlut, when STDS took FauxDP for a quickie, uhm FauxDp scored 2 HW in 24 Hours, NICE!

    Carol, love you, you are the voice of reason in this craziness, love watching her. Heather she redeemed herself again for me on this trip, starting to like her more and more.

    • plainviewsue says:

      T-Rex, I’m assuming you are talking about Ramona, not RamonaCoaster……………..

      • T-Rex says:

        Yes, the Ramona on the show, not our wonderful poster here RamonaCoaster from the blogs. Got to get a new name for IdiotRamonaFromRHNY. Sonja is now going to be referred to as STDS(Sonja the Drunken Slut, who probably does need to be checked for STD’s)

        • plainviewsue says:

          LOL!!! I was sure that was who you meant. But I have to admit, I do find Ramona entertaining. I am just loving this season.

        • Powell says:

          Uh oh!!

        • ramonacoaster says:

          Lol! Thanks T-Rex. No hard feelings. After witnessing fights on Twitter and getting called out, I admit that one of the reasons I chose Ramonacoaster when I started posting on this blog is because I’ll always figure they’re talking about Ramona. I can ignore and go back to business as usual. Tee hee!

        • lovemamaearth says:

          I’m tired of Ram too. I hope this is her last season. New blood and new storylines and new behavior please. Ram is ok. She’s just overstayed the series and is very predictable.

          • Called A Princess... says:

            T-Rex, I love when you wrote that Ramona can dish it out but she can not take it. ITA! I also consider Ramona to be infantile and Sonja to be juvenile in the way that the approach the world around them. And when they get together sometimes, they reverse roles which can cause an even louder casino. JMHO.

      • kendo says:

        Glad you cleared that one up! Wasn’t sure! I completely disagree about Ramona, love her!

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          I’m with you, Kendo. I can’t help myself. I love Ramona too — even though I know she is crazy, and she can be “bad” and deserves to be put in “Adult Time Out” occasionally (where she is ONLY allowed to leave if she keeps her mouth SHUT throughout the entirety of her Time Out. Shrug).

          • Chicago Diane says:

            Sorry, T Rex I agree- Ramona can be a shit-stirrer, but she does it to those who go after her- as LuMan has over and over- but I do think Ramona has a good heart. But I also agree that she can give it far better than she can take it. While I found Heather to be obvious, manipulative and deliberately hurtful when cutting Ramona out, and pretending to help Sonya while positioning herself as the great businesswoman she is not, I do admit that Ramona has not handled it well- nor has she had good comebacks.

            But at her core, I think she means well- which I cannot say for several of these women.
            This season has certainly opened our eyes on Sonya and Luann’s sexual preferences/needs/frequency- and I am appalled for/at them. From the scummyness(word sp? ) of JD II to the potential for disease they have shown that they operate at a very low level- how disgusting to be so well-experienced in NY society (or sex clubs, as the case may be) that they have each been with Aviva’s ex, Harry- who else, pray tell, beyond disgusting JD copycat? We had been aware of Lulu’s open marriage and knew that Sonya had an active sex life, but that was so desperate as to be completely disgusting and beneath comtempt. How in the heck do they look at themselves the next day and pretend to be women of sophistication/name a word- there are none—-.

            I expect that sleaziness from some of the HW of other locations but not NY- ugh.

            • Called A Princess... says:

              Sex is a human need not based on class or lack there of. Sonja has never behaved like anything less then a sex starve teenager. LuLu has a tabloid reputation that paints her as less then proper even when she was married. Morals seem to be mostly learned and practiced, maybe these to missed the lessons? JMHO.

            • BeckyGrey says:

              Why would you think that because Sonja had sex with JDII would lead to a STD. Multiple partners or frequent sexual encounters doesn’t mean that you are not practicing safe sex.If anything it is a reason to practice sexual responsibility.
              Someone wrote a post in a blog about me many years ago, and mentioned three men I had been involved with over the course of 10 years (never overlapping). The comments came in “What a slut” “STD incubator” and some very vile things. Because these men were men of power and prestige, the poster felt that I didn’t measure up to them. So the poster felt it was apropos to demean me. Then there were many people agreeing with it. Luckily I know who I am and are comfortable with it. I just took it as maybe they were upset with my abilities…lol.
              If her “morals” in your opinion are lacking , say that don’t make it seems as though your distain comes from lack of sexual irresponsibilities.

              • Called A Princess... says:

                Becky, I certainly hope your post was not for me. Your private life is just that, private. LuLu and Sonja both have decided to bare all in a very public arena. My issues with morals have far less to do with sex and far more to do with the way these two seem to treat other people, deemed less then them. JMHO.

    • Mary E says:

      wow… you really do hate her…I haven’t seen such strong venom here since She Who Should Not Be Named.

      • T-Rex says:

        Mary, I have hated CoasterRamona since day one of the shows, I liked the LUNATIC Season 1 believe it or not, it was season 2(before even the Bethenny issues) that I started to dislike the Lunatic. I see nothing in Coasters behaviour or attitude that would change my opinion, and because I didn’t watch the last 2 seasons I guess I had forgotten how needy, controlling, overthetop, attention-whoring, twofaced backstabber that she is on screen. I have always posted on the blogs my dislike for her though even when just readin the blogs.

        • Mary E says:

          I get it. For some reason I can’t pinpoint I cannot tolerate Heather from RHOC. OK, I loatheee her.

          • T-Rex says:

            HA! Never watched her since I long ago gave up on the dinosaurs that are RHOC, but from the bits and pieces of the blogs, she sounds like someone I wouldn’t like either. She was trying too hard to fit in and chose the wrong side(as far as I am concerned) by getting in “bed” with Trampsalot!

      • I disagree, I think when RHONJ is being discussed is when our claws come out, just hopefully not at each other. Just the name Caroline Manzo can send me on a 2 days rant 😀

  12. Lady Chatterley says:

    Aviva is revealing herself here:

    “I would have formally apologized in St. Barths but I was just too upset — hence the silly reference to Rush Limbaugh’s idiotic fake apology.I suppose apologizing in Ramona’s ear as she gave me her own phony apology was probably just not good enough. For my part, I expected more from my “friends” Ramona and Sonja. Without trying to absolve myself of all of my sins, I hope everyone can appreciate that this was the perfect storm of bad circumstances for me.”

    1. We are aware that the TH interviews are taped AFTER the rest of the taping is completed. Plenty of time for her to have reflected on her behavior and express some remorse. She didn’t – because she believes that there is nothing wrong with what she said that night and nothing wrong with her behavior. Her only regret is that she let her facade of decorum slip.

    2. Her “apology in Ramona’s ear” should have been sufficient, but Ramona’s was phony. Anything she does should be good enough, but there’s nothing that Ramona can ever do that will suffice.

    3. Ramona and Sonja were “friends.” She’s never really embraced them, has always been on her guard with them, and was waiting for her moment to let them have it. My guess? She doesn’t like their friendship w/her ex.

    4. She would like for all of her insane behavior to be attributed to external circumstances (Ramona and Sonja, her anxieties, her lost limb, etc., etc.), and let’s just proceed under the assumption that she’s really a very lovely person.

    From what I saw, Aviva revealed what’s been simmering under that gracious veneer for the first part of the season – she is a mean, bullying, angry, classist snob, and her childhood tragedy does not excuse any of that.

    • MamaZ says:

      I think Ramona was sincere when she apologized. We saw her just after trying to convince Sonja that Aviva was under a lot of stress from the flight and to forgive her for the ugly remarks. I think she was lying in her TH because she and Aviva were no longer friends.

      • Called A Princess... says:

        I think that Ramona was really sorry too. You could see it in her eyes how much she regretted her part in the casino. That being said, I have told some of my friends that I hate nothing more then people who apologize all the time for doing the same kind of destruction. It means that they either have no self control or they never meant the apology? Ramona seems to be always around the casino screeching the loudest and pointing her finger up peoples noses this season. She is so crazy. IMO.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          That “pointing her finger up people’s noses” made me laugh out loud! And, YES, Ramona IS crazy! LOL

    • PJ says:

      Am I the only one who thinks calling someone white trash is a racial slur?

      • MamaZ says:

        No! I hate that expression. I think it’s both racist and elitist!

        • ramonacoaster says:

          ITA

        • PJ says:

          I agree and what does it say about a person that has a word like that on the tip of their tongue. If she had said you both are B’s I could have gotten past that but white trash is another matter.

          • Called A Princess... says:

            Aviva said it to inflame and destroy. She was not trying to make friends and influence the masses. She lost it. Which leads me to believe there is much more to this story. Class based slurs are no better then any of the other kind.

            My issue here is that Sonja, LuLu and Ramona all enter a scene as though they are so much better then the average Joe. Sonja lets us know early on that she knew how to treat and talk to servants. LuLu was clear that Carole was not to get up from the table and address the cook about dipping sauce. Ramona has treated service people in the most intolerable manner, season after season after season. I agree that using the term “white” was a bad move, using the word trash, was not far off the mark.

            I do not think that Ramona or Sonja ever got over the fact that Carole was deemed the hostess for this trip, because they spent a huge amount of time throwing stink bombs in every direction possible and then feigning innocence. And why wouldn’t LuLu sit there with a smirk on her face when Ramona was left speechless by Aviva’s diatribe, she has been on the receiving end of Ramona’s take no prisoner onslaught for years. After all turnabout is almost always fair play. Sonja, LuLu and Ramona all are so indignant about personal consequence regarding nasty behavior. They tend to get so angry when people deign to treat them in the same manner they are accustom to treating others. Blind spot much! IMO.

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              I understand what you are saying, CAP. I do.

              I respectfully disagree in some respects because I just feel like every time Ramona went after or had it out with LuAnn, LuAnn THOROUGHLY deserved it. That was one of the ways Ramona FINALLY (it took some time) wormed her way into my heart.

              She also drove Jill Zarin batshit. That was one of the other ways she got me on her side despite her often manic, drunken and inappropriate behavior (Shrug).

              I did NOT like the she was mean to Alex and Simon, but she came around, and, in the end, she grew to really like them both. I found that endearing too.

              Oh yeah, every now and then, she would f*ck with Kelly Bensimon, and I kinda liked that too, even though I know it is wrong, and I should NOT have enjoyed it because Kelly is not well. There ARE levels of crazy IMO. Ramona is crazy, yes. But Kelly….way BEYOND Ramona. Kelly is batshit, rocking back and forth in a straightjacket with a MEAN STREAK — that, when activated, may cause some damage to a person — crazy. JMHO.

              But I can totally understand why you hate Ramona. I get it. I’m not quite getting your Aviva love, but I’m trying….Who knows? Maybe I will change my mind about her the way I did with Ramona (and the way I am LEANING toward doing with Heather). 😉

              • Called A Princess... says:

                I do not hate Ramona or love Aviva. I just have to be fair. Ramona is flawed and so is Aviva. I just feel that Aviva is new to the casino and deserves a chance. Ramona should do better because she should know better. Only time will tell for both of them! IMO.

        • BeckyGrey says:

          Exactly MamaZ.

      • kendo says:

        From someone who lives in white trash land, she was completely out of her mind calling them that. I have white trash in my family and I avoid them like the plaque. Apparently, Aviva Buzz Kill has no idea what white trash is!

        • kendo says:

          Oh and I can’t wait until they show Ramona and Sonya looking it up! Should be hilarious!

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            The mere preview of that had me laughing my a*s off!

            • Called A Princess... says:

              Aviva knows exactly what she meant by white trash. Class warfare. Aviva opened the curtain for all to see, once more, in a fit of rage mixed with travel lag.The whole concept is really about keeping a certain class of people down because they are dangerous and can not be trusted, because how could poor people possibly know how to behave. Aviva is saying that Ramona and Sonja are dangerous and can not be trusted and we all know that they can not behave. It can be part of their charm, or a dangerous weapon of contempt. And I would bet that Aviva has heard this from a lot of people, around NYC, in the social scene, when she did her homework. JMHO.

              • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                I KNOW Aviva cannot speak ill of her father, CAP (family loyalty and all), but I cannot understand how Aviva can fix her mouth to call Sonja and Ramona “white trash” when her father’s mouth and behavior were some of the trashiest things I have even seen on my television screen since the last porno I watched (as for when that was, that is NUNYA! I know you don’t give a damn. I just felt like saying it. LOL).

                Aviva’s father is, to use HER term, “WHITE TRASH!!” I do not care how much money he made or who his ancestors were. I mean, the man is a pig. And the fact that she did not have sense enough to keep that man away from not only her castmates, but also the viewing public (via BRAVO’s cameras), lets me know that Aviva’s judgment may not be the best.

                I wonder what Aviva’s hoity toity upper crust friends are saying about her now after having seen certain displays of terrible behavior by the Upper Class George and Aviva.

                • Called A Princess... says:

                  Maybe she tells them that he does not define her? I do not like him but the Bravo edit and Sonja’s need for circus type drama do not make me feel confidant in the why he was portrayed. Sex is so taboo in this country that it is an easy base battle button. George grosses me out but the Bravo group does more. I would rather have sex over violence any day, and I think that I am in the minority in this country, on that issue. There is a certain easy battle ground for Bravo in the sex arena. A cheapening mode, so to speak. I can not get too excited about it with out knowing much more about how he was directed to behave for the show. They all, after all, have roles to play. IMO.

      • Mary E says:

        ITA. Why is someone so “educated and wordly” using such an insult?

      • Lisa Renee says:

        PJ, even though I sometimes we (society) take PC a little to extreme….if you change the word white to black there would be no debate as to it being a slur or not. So IMO it is a slur, Lisa

        • Chicago Diane says:

          It certainly is. And at the moments when I am having a “panic attack” or what term you will- recovering from it, the last thing I am focused on is blaming someone else and picking fights with nasty diatribes- yet Aviva was loaded for bear- I do suspect,the way it has been displayed in advance, that it was producer-induced to a large degree. That moment looking for hotels was not necessary- unless it had been anticipated as a likely occurence- so they were all stirred up in advance.

        • PJ says:

          Lisa Renee I agree on all points.

          A person either uses those words or they don’t so when a person is angry words they use come out not words they never heard of; which means Aviva must use that word or expression, shows what kind of person she is.

          • Called A Princess... says:

            Unless she was hearing the term from a lot of different sources. I think a lot of people are not happy about the way the show depicts NYC women. It would not surprise me if a lot of hate is being aimed at LuLu, Ramona and Sonja from the New York establishment, that might find this show too revealing and tacky. The establishment world would feel this about any women that did this show, but for the Countess, the Morgan and the successful business maverick, the tongues must really be wagging. I think that Aviva is already in full tilt regret, for having done this show. It is not good for her. She is to needy and unstable. Bravo loves every minute of it though, I am sure. The glow of rage melts Andy’s heart! IMO.

    • Scorpiosue1102 says:

      I was going to say the same thing about the talking head LC. The talking heads are done months after filming once producers have their story. I wish I knew exactly when they went to St. Bart’s. I call b.s. on Aviva. She truly felt the way she did. Now, because she sees the backlash she is changing her tune.

      • Chicago Diane says:

        But Aviva had three interviews this week , about how horrible Ramona and Sonya are, and how necessary her comments. No apologies at lal in those settings. And she ovbviouslywas attmepting to repositions herself- not well.

    • catmom1 says:

      Yessss!!! Agree with everything you said. I was also wondering about your first point, with the TH comment about Rush. I think Aviva insults our collective intelligence if she really believes we can’t see through her stories, aka blog.

    • Scorpiosue1102 says:

      Also, does Aviva think the viewers are stupid? We all know that the talking heads are done later. I’m slightly insulted.

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        Yes (she does think the viewers are stupid. Probably because the majority of us did not go to Vassar and law school and live in France and speak 4 or 5 languages).

        • Called A Princess... says:

          Nor have we worked on a highly edited and deceitful reality Bravo TV show. I think that maybe these shows do more harm then good, on the planet. Maybe. They seem very sporty and devised to cause the most personal pain and destruction. Somewhat like bull riding at the rodeo! IMO.

  15. Trudie says:

    BB, great recap of TCM. I enjoyed the cook-off last night. Interesting way to pick the final four. I was sorry to see Takashi go; I would have preferred Lorena be the one to leave. For some reason, I cannot warm up to her.

    Loved how Takashi and Chris shared their ingredients with each other – they wanted to go win on their own merits. Class acts.

    • BB says:

      Thanks. I hated to see Takashi go, but I was kind of glad Lorena won. I don’t believe any of the other remaining chefs thought she deserved to be there. She went all out when the others played it safe and proved she deserved to win last night’s challenge.

      • MamaZ says:

        I HATED seeing Takashi go! HATED IT!

        Ok, I’m calmer now.
        I was happy that Lorena won because it really bothered me that Patricia made so many snide remarks about Lorena. Chris and Takashi both proved themselves to be gentlemen and Patrica acted like a typical Bravo Housewife.

        • BB says:

          I know Patricia kind of surprised me towards the end. I liked her much more at the beginning.

        • OH no. I didn’t see the episode yet- and now I am heart broken. I loved him.

        • jules says:

          I so agree MamaZ. I like Lorena, she’s always smiling and happy to be there. Patricia has come off as a food snob to be and has made it clear she thinks Lorena is not worthy of being there. I was so glad she lost, especially when she was bragging in her TH about how she was done early and cleaning her station while Lorena was chopping like a mad person. It really makes me crazy to see two professional women who can’t play nice. It just makes all of us look bad.

          • MamaZ says:

            I feel the same way jules. The guys were so courteous of each other. Why did she have to look down her nose at Lorena? She obviously has some skills because she’s on the same show as Patricia.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Yes, Trudie that was really cool when they shared ingrediences. The audience whooped and hollered, didn’t they? I loved that!

  16. Powell says:

    Out of curiousity I went on JZs site and a few of her pieces are nice. Everything is reasonably priced, but since I don’t like her she won’t get a dime from me. 🙂

    • BB says:

      I just wonder if she came up with any of the original designs herself or if someone else designed the jewelry and she just picked out the ones the liked best and slapped her name on them.

      • T-Rex says:

        From what I read, she did not CREATE any of the pieces. There is a jewlery designer, have to google her name, and she made some pieces and the LUNATIC picked them for her line. Lunatic couldn’t design herself out of a paper bag. We know she didn’t design any of the squeezemelo line either, she is just the “mouthpiece” for an already established lingerie wholesaler, google the CFO of Squeezemelo and you will see that this person is also the CFO of the wholesale lingerie company. I would guess that the LUNATIC ain’t making a whole lot of dough shilling either of these product lines, it’s not like she invented anything, she is just the mouthpiece.

        • Powell says:

          Hmmm. And w/all her style and retail background she didn’t design anything? I don’t know why I’m surprised.

  17. lovemamaearth says:

    Kim Zolciak’s daugher has tweeted a picture of the new mother – showing us that Kim is already back in shape. Kim gave birth to her fourth child August 15, 2012. Three weeks later – she looks great.
    ^^^^^^
    I can picture her sucking in her gut and yelling at the daughter to hurry up and snap the picture. lol I’ve never been impressed with KimZ and never will be. I’m still readying the blogs. Thanks to you all for such a great job.

    • Trudie says:

      So funny you mention about her sucking in her gut. My sister’s 50th is this weekend and I made homemade picture coasters for her (so cute). Anyway, I was going through old pictures and in everyone picture of my mom, sister or me, we are all sucking in our guts or doing the “turtle” with our heads to minimize our chins!

  18. Powell says:

    That pic of Kim Z looks like a different house they are renting while their home is being built. And Kim does look pretty darn good post Kash less than a month ago. I remember on her show she said she was going to have some work done after they had another baby. I wonder if she’s still going to do that.

    • Powell…That pic of kim is in the foyer of the townhouse .. they moved back there after the eviction from the mansion..I just dont understand why they cant live in Kroy’s 5 bedroom house that he has !!!! I saw a pic of him last week and DAMN..he looks like he has aged 15 years since the wedding !!!!!!

      • Powell says:

        Ok. The townhouse. He still owns his house? Maybe he’s renting it.

      • Sus says:

        LOL! I must have saw the same picture and thought the same thing.
        When I started dating my husband, he was little uncomfortable because he’s a few years older than I am. Unbeknownst to me, he started using Just for Men to cover some gray he had. After a couple of months he got sick of it and stopped using it. I watched his gray come out quickly and wondered what I was doing to age him. A couple of years later, I was digging around his bathroom and found the old Just for Men. I cracked up.

        • Powell says:

          Sus that’s funny. LOL. You thought you were aging him. Does he know you know? 🙂

          • Sus says:

            Oh yes, he knows I know! I love it that I’m younger than him. Although after 15 years I feel like I’m catching up with him faster and faster!

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        Kim is probably causing him to age rapidly. She’s probably already had him over at a lawyer’s office with a will written up so she can get EVERYTHING! LOL

        She DOES look good for just having had a baby. My grandmother used to say that some women just have babies like cats. They would pop them out and go right back to looking the same and doing the same things, like it was nothing. Kim is one of those women.

        • PJ says:

          Why shouldn’t a wife get everything?

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            In certain cases, she should.

            Kim, IMO, got so much from SOME OTHER WOMAN’S HUSBAND for so many years that it just does not seem fair in a way that she is probably going to take poor Kroy for everything he’s got. No offense. Kim can make me laugh, but I do agree with Nene: “…Dat’s a LOWDOWN MONKEY WIT’ A WIG ON, HONEY”!!! LOL

            • PJ says:

              LOL but who is Nene to talk?

              • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                Touche’. Nene has worked my nerves the last couple of seasons, but I still have a bit of a soft spot for her. I think, morally, she is a better person than Kim. JMHO. I do wish they would become friends again, though, because they were hilarious together.

                • Called A Princess... says:

                  I do not see NeNe and Kim having that much in common. Kim has a talent issue. Very little. NeNe seems to be doing very well for herself. Kim seems to need a lot of support. I do not want them back together because I fear that Kim would only be trying to use NeNe’s shine. If NeNe found out it could hurt her career and relationship with the public, if there was a murder charge. IMO.

                  • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                    Murder? Say what now? Would Nene try to kill Kim?

                    • Called A Princess... says:

                      People do the strangest things under pressure. It has not happened yet, but the need to pit people against each other for sport can not end well. Bravo seems to have very few limited in their gamesmanship when pitting woman against woman. A suicide has not changed this relentless need for conflicted. Time will tell. I really want NeNe to think long and hard before bring a Kiim Zee Bee back into her life. NeNe has too much to loose, at this time. IMO.

        • designernailsdiana says:

          I’m sure Kim is wearing YummieTummie or Squisheez or possibly the REAL stuff like Spanx because that is the first thought I had when I saw the pic Brielle tweeted. I agree she was yelling “Hurry up and take the Dam picture I’m late for my boobie pumping”

    • Orson says:

      I hope she gets herself spayed.

    • kendo says:

      She does look good! She is still one of my favorites. She has completely taken advantage of her time on RHOA and her own show! She got lucky with the singing, thanks to Kandi!
      Joe should have hired Kandi to work with MG. I love some Kandi – she’s my favorite from all the shows. She so talented and hard working!

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        I love Kandi too. She’s one of the few housewives with REAL money, but she does not brag about it. I do not find her to be overly flashy either. In fact, I find her to be rather frugal (which is probably she will ALWAYS have money).

        As MUCH as I love her, however, I cannot tell a lie: She needs to be picked up by the Fashion Police (Nothing serious. Just a misdemeanor. Not felonies like Kyle Richards and Adrienne Maloof), but Kandi does need to do a little time in fashion jail. Still love, love, love her, though!

        • MamaZ says:

          Yes Detox! For starters her tacky dresses from Ramona’s House of Satin should fit!

          • Powell says:

            Yes MamaZ. Ramona can stop w/the satin dresses. Satin is a special fabric that is worn occasionally but Ramona wears it to speaking engagements, to cocktail parties, to formal events. She knows what works for her figure but I think she can use a stylist also. All she and other HWs have to do is hire someone before the season to put together an entire wardrobe for the season.

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              Somebody should lure Ramona with bottles of Pinot Grigio to a place with great dance music where Ramona can do her usual “Elaine”(from Seinfeld) dancing (I have never seen a woman who seriously CANNOT dance just LOVE to dance as much as Ramona does!). In between dancing, this person should continue to ply Ramona with Pinot Grigio (or other alcohol. Take your pick. I’m sure Ramona won’t be very picky) while another person sneaks into her damned closet and REMOVES every single one of those SATIN dresses.

              I’m sick of seeing Ramona in satin! She’s got such a good figure. She can wear so many things. Enough with the satin already! JEEZ!!

        • Powell says:

          Yes Detox. You are right about Kandi being a fashion violater at times. She needs a stylist. Kandi’s biggest violation to me is that she wears too tight clothes on that booty. There’s are clothes she should wear to accentuate her curves not make them scream for breathing room.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            I agree, Powell. There is nothing wrong with having a donkey booty. However, it DOES need to be covered up and not accentuated so prominently during certain events, certain hours of the day and in certain places. I mean, sometimes, she looks like she’s going to a hoochie-mama club with that thing prominently displayed to catch a man or something, when she’s just going to the grocery store. Ummm…..NO MA’AM, Miss Kandi!!! Detox loves, loves, loves you! But stop being cheap and come up off of some of those millions you have in the bank and get a STYLIST!!

            • MamaZ says:

              And Kandi is really pretty and has a great personality. A stylist would have a lot of fun working with her.

        • Orson says:

          Kandi doesn’t *need* to flash it about. She knows she’s got it. And she’s learned that the toes you might step on on the way up might be connected to the asses you have to kiss when you’re back at the bottom. Nene does NOT know this.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            Agree. For some reason, I think that, deep down, Nene is an incredibly insecure and, believe it or not, sensitive (as in her feelings get hurt very easily and she puts up walls and is super-defensive) person who has allowed those insecurities and sensitivities to manifest themselves in NASTY and HAUGHTY behavior.

            • Powell says:

              ITA. Why else would she turn so quickly on Kim when they were friends for yrs.

              • Called A Princess... says:

                NeNe turned on Kim because Kim is a nasty piece of work. She is entertaining but Atlanta knows the real Kim, and the story just is not pretty. IMO.

                • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                  Is it true that Kim was an escort? Also, Kim does seem to have a pattern of using people and throwing them away when they are no longer useful to her. She does not like to pay people either. I think she has a bit of an entitlement complex where she feels she should just be GIVEN things (and not have to pay for them) simply because she is KIM. I have no idea from where this entitlement comes. Her parents do not look super-rich to me.

                  • Called A Princess... says:

                    In Atlanta, people are saying that she prey’s on AA women that want to get ahead. I do not like that behavior very well. JMHO.

      • Powell says:

        kendo Kandi can’t keep working miracles. 🙂

  19. plainviewsue says:

    BB, loved your recap of TCM. I thought the episode was such a fun episode, except for Takashi leaving.

    I’m the opposite Trudie. I love Lorena, and I felt for her when Patricia was clearly rooting for Chris to win. I was hoping Patricia would go.

    Ramonacoaster, OMG your blog summaries were hysterical. Lynn would be so proud!!!

  20. Sorry if you have already seen this video of Aviva talking to US magazine

    http://www.usmagazine.com/entertainment/news/real-housewives-of-new-yorks-aviva-drescher-im-not-speaking-to-ramona-singer-and-her-puppet-sonja-morgan-201249

    Very interesting to hear what she has to say about Ramona & Sonja.
    Aviva is looking terrible from the last episode, and it looks like the next episode isn’t going to show her any better. Yes she over reacted, ranted & raved, but if I Had to be on a reality show (ha! never gonna happen) & put up with what Ramona, Sonja & the producers do to make you blow your top, I’m sure Aviva is acting much better than I would be. One thing about these reality shows, they reveal every flaw you never knew you had. Maybe Aviva will learn something from it, or maybe not. The reunion will show us a peek at that.

    Still doesn’t explain her perverted father! I hope she realizes how inappropriate his behavior is.

    • T-Rex says:

      BlueSky, totally agreed, I think when she walked in and the STDS(Sonja the drunken Slut) and CoasterRamona were half naked in the pool, and her husband had a chance to see naked boobies, she flipped her gasket. Look we knew this was a setup, Coaster and STDS were told well in advance that Reid was invited to stay there by Carole, THEY wanted him to stay at a hotel, and even did the whole staged, “we are going to stay elsewhere” stupid scene from the rental agency. Again Aviva finds her perv Father okay, but having pervy women half naked so that ReidyBoy might actually see them, probably gave her a couple more phobias. Aviva is extremely insecure, that’s is definitely noted, and I think, she thinks(and probably rightfully so), that STDS would climb atop Reid’s pole if he would let her. Aviva needs to let go of the jealousy and insecurity she has when it comes to her husband. Sheesh STDS was all over Carole’s boyfriend Russ and would have done him under the table if he asked, she is a bitch in heat, but Carole deftly diffused the situation.

      • BB says:

        Instead of bringing attention to her cause in a good way, I think Aviva has done her charity a disservice by being on RHONY and showcasing her vulnerabilities. In her US interview she says she wants to show everyone that amputees can do what everyone else does who aren’t disabled. Although Aviva has shown that having a prosthesis hasn’t kept her from doing what anybody else can do physically, and I applaud her for that, she is showing that her accident has affected her in a more profound emotional way that she has not managed to overcome with much success. She’s probably not the best example of one who has fully “come to terms” with her disability.

        • Right BB, don’t get why she can’t see that. The US mag interview was done for Sept. 4, 2012….is she not getting the viewer’s feedback?? Guess not, which is sad that she isn’t bothering to realize how she comes across. SMH, when will she watch the Push Girls, and get a clue?

          • PJ says:

            I’m sure see feels about the viewers (us) the same way she feels about Sonja and Ramona.

            • Called A Princess... says:

              Is Aviva really suppose to hate and talk badly about her own father. If she did, then people would be calling her out for that. Aviva did not make her father a pervert, that is completely on him. It seems that if there is a way to assign blame to a woman then that is what the public does. These are to different people with there own set of problems. Also if Ramona and Sonja were having a candid moment in the pool, it would be one thing, but to be nude because you are mad because a man has been invited on a trip that you are not even hosting. Is.well.just.crazy.com. IMO.

              • Sus says:

                I don’t think Aviva should talk badly about her dad. I do think that she should have never introduced him to the women on TV. By her comments, she clearly knew he was a dirty old man that wouldn’t control himself. If he was on her about being on the show, she could told him that it wasn’t possible. I was groped 2 times by dirty old men – both at weddings and/or parties involving weddings. I was a young – 21-23 when the situations happened. It’s disgusting. If you confront him, it could very easily turn into a scene, that’s the last thing you want to cause at your friend’s wedding. The second situation, the groom’s 80 year old father was all over me the entire weekend. At the reception he caught the garter belt, left the woman who caught the bouquet and came up and attacked me trying to put the garter on me. My husband-to-be kept trying to make jokes all weekend while making it clear that I didn’t like that behavior, as did I. After the garter incident we left because it was just too awkward and disgusting. The groom kept laughing and saying how “sexed up” his father was.
                I think we’re moving towards the end with it because it’s very clear now on how men should behave at work. The Mad Men era is definitely over for the most part. Thankfully most of the Benny Hill/Aviva’s dad people will die off and it won’t happen near as much.

                • Called A Princess... says:

                  I am sorry that happen to you. I have had men try to work my last nerve as a young man, too. I feel that the Bravo clan sets a lot of this strange stuff up for ratings. Maybe we will find out more about how he landed on the show. How much his behavior was influenced by the production crew, that is really not woman friendly, we may never know. IMO.

        • Powell says:

          Good point BB. I hadn’t thought of that.

        • T-Rex says:

          BB I also find it interesting that she attended college, trips to Europe, modeling and hanging out in Paris but only got the phobias since 2007, when Aviva met Reid

      • Eastbayca says:

        I re-watched the episode last night and i would have to disagree with you on Reid seeing the ladies bits. Reid and Aviva were had approaching…the other girls stood up to go and greet them, Ramona slipped on her top and Sonja was holding a towel (I think) to cover herself. When Heather said nudity has been the vacation theme, Reid excused himself.
        Why are people being hard on Sonja…she is single, not a serious commitment in sight…she can sleep with whomever she pleases and in whatever positions is my opinion.

        • ramonacoaster says:

          I guess Aviva automatically assumed that the reason Ramonja didn’t jump out of the pool to greet them right away was because of her husband being there. Not because they were naked. I’m wondering why Aviva in the interview said Ramonja set her up to fail. Fail at what? Being a representative of her charity? Being on her good behavior at St Barth’s?

          • PJ says:

            I don’t think Ramona and Sonja set her up, but that’s as good of an excuse as anything else for her horrific behavior. Aviva is spinning it’s not like we haven’t seen a housewife spin before. BTW I wonder just how close she will be with Carole after Carole nailed her in this weeks blog, and Carole was so right on.

          • Lady Chatterley says:

            I suppose that she’s failing at being a RHW, because Ramona is bringing out the crazy. It’s all Ramona’s fault!

        • T-Rex says:

          I will re-watch, but thought they only covered up after they had walked onto the deck. I guess I for one am being hard on STDS, this season because all we have seen of her is a drunken, slutty mess of a woman who can’t even manage to get to a photo shoot that someone else setup on time, nor even to articulate what she wants cohesively. Her constant slurring and purring for the cameras is nauseating. Now, you also have to remember I haven’t watched the show since B left, this is the first season since then, and only read the blogs so not sure if this drunkeness is a new thing or she was always like this.

          • Lady Chatterley says:

            From what I recall, Ramona put on her top as soon as she heard them coming in. Sonja was in the pool, holding a towel in front of her, when Aviva came over to say hello to them. Aviva didn’t realize that they had been naked, until Ramona said that Sonja couldn’t get out of the pool, because she was undressed. That’s when Reid made his exit. But, Sonja did get out of the pool, wrap the towel around her and come over to greet them.

      • kendo says:

    BB – this TCM best season ever and it sounds like you have fun recapping it too!
    As soon as Kerry won the quick fire, I knew someone cool was going to be going home. Chris and Patricia have been friends for a long time and they admire each other’s skills and creativity – so no harm in rooting for each other – I hope they are the final two! I will miss Takashi’s interesting way of creating dishes and his gentlemanly way of dealing with his competitors.

  24. Scorpiosue1102 says:

    Ramona has said in an article (can’t remember where…I think US) that Aviva gets even worse on how she acts. It doesn’t stop at Slutty Island.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      AvivaDiva has done let her freak out and apparently can’t get it back under control for the rest of the season – the reunion…. will be interesting.

      • PJ says:

        Her royal majesty queen AvivaDiva, queen of mean and her lady in waiting countless Loo Loo. Birds of a feather.

    • BB says:

      So I guess Aviva really can’t blame her behaviour on the stress related to the plane ride over since it looks like she never lets up (and judging by her current interviews she still hasn’t). You would think someone had harmed one of her children or something by the way she’s acting. The punishment is definitely not fitting the crime.

      • PJ says:

        I’m sure her majesty was so stressed out by that plane ride she still hasn’t gotten over it. It could take years.

    • Eastbayca says:

      Looking at the previews for next week Aviva is still harping about lack of a welcoming committee.
      I watched the USmag video…it looks like Aviva is trying to do some damage control and then sticks her foot in the mouth, just the fact that Sonja and Ramona are still breathing seems to drive her to the edge of insanity. We can see the venom Ramona was talking about.

  25. I took both my daughters to school today. The house feels so empty, I don’t know what I am going to do when they go to college.

  26. Orson says:

    So, on Flipping Out, does Jeff Lewis have any friends who are not employees who he can fire? And can he comprehend that Jenni’s wedding is one occasion that is NOT ALL ABOUT HIM?

    • BB says:

      Probably not and no. Jeff has always been known to hire friends, friends of friends, relatives (he fired one of his relatives by marriage last year), former clients, etc. Believe it or not, I think Jeff sometimes hires people who just need a job because he has a soft heart instead of someone who’s probably more qualified for the job. He let three people go last season (Jett, Sarah (the relative my marriage) and the other intern who’s name I can’t think of). And he fired a contractor. He’ll fire people, but he has to be pushed to the limit to do it.

      • Lady Chatterley says:

        Trace was the other guy that he fired – which seemed pretty impulsive.

        He appears to surround himself with people that he can maintain pseudo-intimate relationships with – people that he can feign closeness with, but can cut ties when things get uncomfortable for him. Jeff’s a bit pathetic – he does seem to be sabotaging the relationship that he started building w/Gage last season.

        • BB says:

          Jeff will be the first to admit he has some psychological issues going on.

        • I’ve enjoyed watching Jeff & Jenni over the years, but my tolerance of Jeff is gone, sorry. I’m not sure if his craziness is tolerated by anyone, really. This IS a tv show. Who knows who is a hired actor (Trace, Jett…. Jenni IS an actress & pitched the show in the 1st place, if my memory is correct). Sometimes I wonder if he ever made money, BEFORE the reality show. After the show, yes he’s made money, because he’s getting paid to do the show! It opened up a lot of opportunities for him, from a second reality show to more clients for his decorating talents.

          Watching Gage, did anyone else see a flicker of real hurt in his eyes? Run Gage, Run! As fast as you can. Jeff has NEVER been able to keep long lasting relationships with ANYONE. Jenni is the only one that puts up with him, but is it just for the show? Zoila puts up with him, but he made her legal & even got plastic surgery for her.

          Remember Jeff’s last WWHL show, with Kristen? His antics were very immature.

        • MelTheHound says:

          Trace got fired for the same type of stuff Jenni’s ex did. Using company resources for personal use when they should have been doing their jobs. Remember the spy-cam smoke alarm? I think by that time, Jeff had enough of the goofing off and screwing up. He appears to be on that path once again, even with his partner.

          • jules says:

            I believe Trace was using Jeff’s software to design a closet for a client of his own rather than for Jeff Lewis Design. I vaguely remember he said at first that it was his own closet then changed the story. That was the last straw for Jeff.

            I also think that Jeff and Gage have been together for a long time. Again, I vaguely remember Jeff saying that Gage had been there nearly the whole time but refused to be on camera until last season. Of course, it could be the voices in my head telling me this. Sometimes the random info that pops through my brain is wrong!

            • Powell says:

              But did Jeff deal w/it right away? No. He let it build up and then exploded and fired him. Why didn’t he do the normal thing and discuss it 1st? Because Jeff doesn’t know how to draw the line between employee and friend.

            • MelTheHound says:

              I think you’re both right. I knew it was something like that but couldn’t remember exactly. Either way, he was doing the ‘design’ work on Jeff’s computers, using his software, while Jeff was paying him to be there. A big no no for Most companies.

              • Orson says:

                My understanding was that he was offering Jeff’s design for client A’s closets to a potential client of his own.

                • Called A Princess... says:

                  I as usual I have a whole different take. Jeff was jealous. A few episodes before a female client was talking about how much she liked Trace and how beautiful his skin was, to Jeff. Jeff’s boyfriend was also looking for a way to get rid of the young, more attractive competition. IMO, things fell apart when a client slapped Trace in the face on national TV and Jeff did nothing about it. Also calling your employee an A-HOLE in the exit interview makes Jeff the A-HOLE, considering the fact that he was not man enough to defend his employee, concerning a willfully abusive client. Pot calling cattle black, much. I can not stand Jeff, in any way, shape or form. Weak! IMO.

              • designernailsdiana says:

                Oh dear I better stop making RHO spreadsheets on company time…..

        • Powell says:

          Right. They all went to Trace’s graduation from design school so I think he was fond of Trace. Also I think that’s one of Jeff’s downfalls of having such personal relationships w/the people that work w/him. He let’s things slide and build up until he’s ready to fire them. With Jenni’s ex Chris Jeff would say he was lazy, punish him w/lame jobs, then hang out w/them on the weekend. That kept building over the yrs and then Chris started snooping into Jeff’s finances and that was the last straw w/Jeff. He says he fired Trace cause he was spending work hours designing his own project and socializing w/a client outside of work.

          • Lady Chatterley says:

            And if he did those things, there’s no indication that he addressed it previously. It seemed to come out of the blue. In my office, when there’s a problem, we have to manage the problem. Firing the person is not considered a desirable resolution, unless the offense is extremely grievous. There was one person who was reassigned in all of my years (not fired, moved to another project), and that was after working w/that person for two years, with various approaches to resolve problems w/productivity and problems getting along w/other project members. I suppose it’s different w/in a corporate structure, rather than a small business.

            • kendo says:

              I hate that he fired Trace. I was hoping he’d be there for a long time. I wanted to see how he grew working with Jeff. I think Jeff is like most of us co-dependent people, we put up with a lot but when you reach that limit (whatever it may be), there’s no return.

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      That’s a good question, Orson. I always thought Jeff kinda “played up” his flaws and eccentricities a little bit for the camera. With that being my line of thinking, I figured that he was doing the same thing with Jenni’s wedding (acting like it is ALL about him) to make the show more entertaining.

      But maybe he really IS like that. If so, then he either has no friends or very frew friends that are not employees.

      I WILL give him this. He DOES know that he can be a difficult person with whom to deal and live. So, he does have some self-awareness, IMO, unlike the majority of people on these reality shows.

      • Orson says:

        Yes, he knows he’s got OCD, to some degree. So, being a designer/interior decorator is probably a good profession for him. But from what I’ve seen, he’s an abusive employer. On the other hand, he just laughs nervously when his employees are abused or insulted by his clients. He just sat there and laughed when that guy slapped what’s his name and felt up Jenni. Me? I’d at least would have had the client arrested for sexual assault. And later Jeff did NADA when that other client was bullying Jenni.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          Oh yeah. Good points. I guess it’s like the guy who meekly takes all kinds of abuse from his boss at the office without saying a word. Then, when he comes home, he kicks his dog and screams at his wife. Maybe that’s how Jeff is. He abuses those that he loves the most and that are closest to him but clams up when it comes to people from whom he has secured/or may need to secure business (Shrug).

        • kendo says:

          I didn’t like the way he handled those situations.
          I would have lost it on of those clients. I think he was afraid he’d make it worse, especially with the guy that slapped Trace, he seemed way crazy!

  27. T-Rex says:

    One of my friends, who I had been emailing to tell her to watch the shows since she just moved to NYC, and she sent me this article, it’s from 1999, and Ms. little jet-setter had zero problems going to France, England, her families home in the Bahamas, I think they also had a home in Florida, how confident she is yadda, yadda, http://www.thefreelibrary.com/Zone%3A+I+lost+my+leg+in+an+accident+at+the+age+of+6,+but+I+fought+to…-a060390961

    • Powell says:

      Thks for that T-Rex. With all her triumphs there’s no reason for her to have so many phobias. I think w/Reid she’s chosen to limit herself.

      • T-Rex says:

        Seems to me her new “persona” that emerged from her divorce from Harry was “damsel in distress”, I am sure that once everything hit the press about Harry and his serial cheating, which I believe was splashed all over the gossip mags years ago, she took on the “whoa is me”, “look how wronged I was”, “someone save me”. So in comes Reid, who probably was astonished that this uber-attractive woman was interested in him and he happens to be loaded, so maybe he likes playing the Prince Charming to her fake-phobia-laden ass. He seems to be more of a lap dog as well, JMO, but anyone who has to button up his shirt to his chin in the Florida heat because his wife tells him to, probably doesn’t have much of a back bone when it comes to her. So she can play this phobia-game with him to mask her real insecurity of him cheating on her, or leaving her for another woman.

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      Ever since Aviva tried to bum rush SH and tell her what to do with regard to any pix or articles SH wrote about her, she has been putting Aviva on SERIOUS blast.

      There is a commenter to many of those articles on Aviva who claims to personally know Aviva (She also claims to be acquainted with Harry, Sonja, Ramona & LuAnn). She says Aviva is a COMPLETE NIGHTMARE! She says Aviva was literally left at the altar by her first fiancee at their wedding (which was supposed to take place in) Jamaica. She then married Harry Dubin and, allegedly made his life a living hell. Then, she snapped up Reid. She also says Aviva’s father was a shady/sheister accountant who got in trouble for getting “funny” with some of his superstar clients’ money. This once resulted in him being sued by Mary Lou Retton for 1.4 million that she claimed he bilked her out of. I think Aviva’s maiden name is Teichner.

      This person could be a COMPLETE liar, but it’s still fun to read anyway (Shrug). 😀

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        Oh yeah, that commenter goes by the name of “Girlfriend” on that blog (if she has not changed it. I am not sure if she is still commenting. I have not been to SH’s site in a few days. You will definitely find “Girlfriends”‘s comments about Aviva in some older SH articles on Aviva, though).

        • MamaZ says:

          Her father was sued by Mary Lou Retton and had to pay her a settlement. That’s a matter of record. But I take everything from other blogs with a grain of salt. Too many of them said terrible things about Lynn and I know they weren’t true.

          • Powell says:

            Detox and MamaZ I’d never heard that Mary Lou sued anyone for stealing her money. Good for her that she won and got it back. I’m surprised that George would be on tv since that happen and people know what he did.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            I totally understand your feelings about other bloggers, Mama Z. I have said several times that SH can be a complete bitch and very mean to her commenters. She also seems to have mood swings like crazy. Despite that, I still lurk there because she does seem to come up with some stuff way beforehand that later turns out to be true. I don’t know how (Shrug). Maybe she is making this entire thing up about Aviva; however, the story about Aviva’s nasty attempt to exert some control over SH’s blog came out before the episodes when Aviva started to show her “crazy.” The event described by SH certainly fits the pattern of behavior I am starting to see from Aviva.

            But, who knows?

            When it comes to bloggers, my loyalty (and heart) still remains with Lynn, though (and always will. XOXO, Lynn and XOXO to you too, MamaZ.).

            • MamaZ says:

            • AZGirl says:

              Why is SH referring to Aviva as PT Housewife? What does PT mean?

              • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                It took a while for me to figure that one out too, AZ. Eventually one of the commenters asked her why she referred to Aviva as “PT Housewife” or “PT”, and another commenter explained that it was because of the “Viva” brand of Paper Towels (BTW, those are pretty good paper towels for the price, IMO. Very sturdy. Absorbent. And not as expensive as some other brands. But I digress….LOL).

              • looneylucy says:

                I couldn’t understand it either AZ, but PT stands for “paper towel”, i.e., VIVA (Aviva) paper towel.

      • T-Rex says:

        Her personality is just so two-sided, on one hand she is this “uber-mom” and “champion” of those who have lost limbs, and look how well you can achieve your goals, then when around her husband it’s this whole other persona of clingy, neediness and faux-phobias, it’s just odd.

        • PJ says:

          I can believe the complete nightmare part although I take everything I read on blogs with a grain of salt.

      • Winston says:

        It all rings true with the way she is acting on the show and her father’s sexually immoral behavior would carry over into him being immoral in other aspects of his life.

        • George T must be applying all the things he has learned from being an active member of
          The female orgasm revealed club. While “researching ” for my red folder … his name popped up on the members list online…I busted a gut laughing.. Some of the words he used on the HWS are words from this site….Maybe he’s one of those all talk no action type guys !!! I just dont understand why Aviva really thought it was a good idea to have him on TV and be exposed ….payback of some sort ???? hmmmm

          LOL. MTH, you always crack me up!! I missed the BSC crazy demon look in Aviva’s eyes because I was too busy look at Ramona’s eyes because I could not believe that they were actually bugging out even MORE than usual (which I did not think was possible) when Aviva was ranting at her.

          I will have to watch the episode again and look for for Aviva’s demonic eyes.

          • kendo says:

                ITA and wonder what scenes they cut out of Aviva.

              • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                She probably had a Kelly/Scary Island flashback. She was also probably wishing for the hand from Scary Island (with Kelly) that was holding and handing her a glass of pinot grigio to magically appear (the hand had no body attached. It was a scene on Scary Island where Ramona had that same bugged-out-eyed look of utter disbelief and “Oh Shit” as Kelly was going stark raving MAD. Here comes a body-less hand with a full glass of pinot grigio. Ramona is standing there like a statue, staring at Kelly in complete disbelief, as if she cannot move. Yet, when “the hand” presents the pinot grigio to her, she slowly — without ever taking her bug eyes off Kelly and barely moving — takes the wine and watches in terror before she sips).

      • Powell says:

        I was just saying to my mother that the pomice dept needs to be more careful w/their psych testing of potential police officers cause Drew didn’t just become this person. He’s always been like this and he had a job that allowed him to get away w/this for yrs. Now his 4th wife is missing. Her words helped convict him.

        • Winston says:

          I also think being a police officer can change you (not all but some) since you are exposed to humanity at it’s worst. But he definitely thought he was above the law.
          And, I agree, he was like this before.

    Good afternoon everyone. Catching up today. I only watched part of TCM and then switched to Bill Clinton’s speech at the DNC. What a speech. That guy is amazing. Sad to see Takashi eliminated.

    Great job Ramonacoaster on the recap of the blogs. Too funny.
    Interesting change in Aviva’s personality over the years. She has become quite dependent on Reid. Hard to tell if it is due to having a son to care for or her marriage breaking up. She is quite a mess. Her obsession with the media is going to send her down the path that JZ has taken. Shilling girdles and jewelry (which looks like stuff you buy at Walgreens) on HSN.

    • PJ says:

      I believe that she did turn things around for him (money wise and addiction wise) and look at the way he repays the mother of his two children. I will never watch another thing Kelsey Grammer is ever in.

      • MamaZ says:

        Me either. I used to enjoy him on Frasier but I can’t watch him now. I also stopped watching Woody Allen movies back when he destroyed Mia Farrow’s family.

      • Winston says:

        I know, it’s strange how that works because I used to enjoy watching Frasier when it was on late at night and now I can’t watch it. Ever since it came out the way he left Camille I just saw him in a completely different light.

      • Sam says:

        I stopped watching anything of his after dealing with his production company a while back. If his employees are anything like him, poor Camille.

    • Powell says:

      Good for Camille. She said on BH how she helped him through the drug problems. Now we know to what extent. Kelsey should be bowing to Camille. If it wasn’t for her he could easily still have substance abuse problems and no money. Instead he tells Oprah he “knew it was over before it began”. He’s gonna eat those words when his kids w/Camille get older cause they’ll know the truth.

      • Winston says:

        So true. Especially if he abandons his kids, they will absolutely know the truth. I could never figure out how he asked for custody of the son and not the daughter. How will that make his daughter feel if she ever finds out he made such a horrible request.

        • Contessa says:

          Men who cheat re-write their history with the newest wife to make themselves look good. I have no doubt Kelsey POS told new wifey that he was miserable and Camille treated him badly and only wanted fame. I call it revisionist cheating.

  35. Called A Princess... says:

    Correction about Bethenny and LuAnn. I do not believe that LuLu asked Bethenny to call her the Countess. She wanted to be address as Mrs. de Lusseps to Bethenny’s driver whom LuLu had never met. I have never been to NYC, but I would think that first introductions would be pretty formal, they are here in Seattle. First and last name with a Mr., Miss, Ms. or Mrs. sometimes added. It is not rocket science, just having manners and being civil. I find it amazing that some characters on these shows can do no wrong and other might whisper something or blink and it should be the start of World Cable Wars 1. Not only that but it becomes myth and duplicity when someone writes disinformation about a show that prides itself on providing disinformation. I think Bethenny knew what she was doing when she introduced LuLu. She did it for the drama. One does not get as far as Bethenny has without knowing basic manners. Bethenny also seemed to have a hard time pronouncing de Lusseps, which was apparent in later episodes. Snake is much easier, I guess? JMHO.

    • Orson says:

      My read on that was Bethany thought of the driver as a fellow human being, like her, doing his job. The Countless thought of the driver as just a servant, her inferior. Pirate boy was just an attractive servant provided to service her. Of course, the Countless never pays for everything, so I guess PB was paid by the owner of the club who brought him to the house.

              Sorry Sam! Basic manners have nothing to do with selective memory. LuLu is controlling and petty but she got that one right, in my opinion. Just because we do not like people does not mean that they are always wrong or that they should be misrepresented. LuLu is very pushy but so is Bethenny and there were two dynamics going on at the same time. Two sides of the same coin. Seems to me that Bethenny did not know LuLu, at the time, well enough, to be poking her. She could not even say LuLu’s last name correctly, so she introduced her by her first name, not rocket science. Just human. JMHO.

    I want more spoons!! This is the best explanation of chronic illness that I have ever heard.
    If you have or know someone with a chronic illness or health issue, read this. I am very careful with my spoons.

    What happened to yesterday’s blog? Did someone accidentally move it to Trash? (it can be restored if so).

    If all of Jacq’s friends and castmates have known about her son for the last 18 months (1 1/2 yrs) why is it such a big deal to her now that Teresa hasn’t reached out to her, wouldn’t they have all done that 18 months ago when she first found out. Why would they have to do it again when she is making it public knowledge. Are you telling me she never discussed it with Tre 18 months ago, what she kept it secret from her both a friend (still at that time) and castmate. Seems like a silly thing to even bring up at this point in time, but I guess she needs something to complain about. Ok back to reading the comments

    I just have to share this. I am the “responsible” one among my family and friends. Mind you, I am not a wet blanket, but I do not let my hair down most of the time. Consequently, I am usually the designated driver after nights out, do not get wild when the kids are around, etc. My kids are always on my back to lighten up and have fun. Anyway, my husband and I and another couple are going to Tuscany in a week. We have been planning this for years as a celebration of being empty nesters (both our youngest have just left for college). We have rented a small “villa” with a pool. I just got a text from my oldest daughter that said: “When you are in Tuscany, if you and Mrs. X become Ramona and Sonja, I will die happy.” 🙂

    • Lady Chatterley says:

      Aw, love this! 🙂

    • Winston says:

      Too cute! And you must share the details of your trip whether you act like Ramonja or not. Sounds like it will be amazing.

    • looneylucy says:

      Oh my Trudie, what a dream vacation. Enjoy every minute and, yes, take time for some “Turtle Time”!! Hold your wine glass up in the air and circle your hips just like Ramona!!

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      Ooh, Tuscany! I’m jelly! I would so love to go there. I LOVE your oldest daughter. I laughed out loud when I read what she texted.

    I was determined not to watch the new season of Miami. Anyway, last night wanted to take advantage of the fact that DH was out of town to watch something crappy on tv and lo and behold next week’s premiere episode of Miami was already up on On Demand (why???). So great now I have watched it. and while it wasn’t amazing I am definitely sucked in enough to know that I will be watching it this season. arrrgggh.

    • plainviewsue says:

      I am determined not to watch. We’ll see how long that lasts……………………..

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        That’s what I said about RHOBH when I heard they were keeping Taylor.

        I find myself getting weaker and weaker every day about keeping that promise to myself.

  44. plainviewsue says:

    A blogger tweeted that the NJ housewives are on their way to a hotel in Atlantic City where they will stay overnight before the epic filming begins tomorrow morning. I guess this way Jac can’t skip it!

    Lauren tweeted a picture of her and George (Melissa’s make up artist who also disses Teresa any chance he gets) in the same limo, tweeting that they are on their way to the reunion.

    You can’t possibly think that the kiddies will also have time on the couch as well. It’s bad enough we have to see the husbands.

    Teresa is definitely going. She tweeted that we will all get to her new hair care products , which she is using for the reunion.

    If once again, it’s a pile up on Teresa, it will be sickening to watch. I am find with Teresa getting tough questions, i.e. Joe’s disgusting language to her; who he was on the phone with.

    But each and every other housewife can no longer get a pass. They all need to be held accountable for every single disgusting thing they did. Melissa & Kathy got it so easy last reunion. Name me one tough question they were asked!!! When has the Red Queen really gotten drilled???

    But we all know what the Red Queen will answer to every and all questions:

    “It is what it is.” “I am not fake.” I can’t be fake.” “I am the best Caroline Manzo that I can be.” “I am a bulldog.” “We fight big and we love big.” “I love my daughter.”

    Blah blah blah.

    • Winston says:

      I wonder why her kids will be there. I know Vicki’s daughter was at the OC reunion and it created drama but I fail to see why Caroline’s kid(s) would be there. Maybe Lauren will just be backstage. But I can see Caroline requesting it for back up. She likes to dish it but she definitely can’t take it…maybe Albert will be there too so he can destroy Joe Gui.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      IMO – Teresa can handle whatever Bravo throws her way – she signed up for it. My reunion parity expectations are so low that an ant couldn’t crawl under them. SO let them all be the asshats we know them to be and pray that the powers that be clean house.

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      I just wish everybody but Teresa would bring their knives and/or guns and just get it over with and KILL Teresa, already. Shit, why don’t you women just shoot the bitch — or stab her, your choice!!

      I think that is the ONLY thing that will satisfy these women.

      I mean, I wonder how they would feel and/or what they would do if Teresa would have done some REAL lowdown sh*t — like sleep with one of their husbands; or call CPS on one of them; or push one of their children down and kick the child afterwards; or file false charges against one of them; or report them to the I.R.S. for something.

      They probably would have murdered her ONSCREEN and then have thrown her into some river after weighing her body down with cement shoes as we — the audience — watched enraptured.

      Sigh.

      • looneylucy says:

        LOL. But still, they’ll go for the jugular. Gonna be sad.

      • Perhaps Andy should set up Housewife Hunger Games.

        • Sus says:

          OMG!! You’ve got something there!

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            ROFL. I swear to God, it would be the highest rated show. Now, I’m not going to be able to sleep because I am seriously going to be contemplating which one of the housewives I think would REALLY win.

            I’m sure we could all debate that one for HOURS (Commenter #1: I think it would be Nene because she is an Amazon, and she can kill the women with her bare hands. Commenter #2: I think you are underestimating Taylor. She is very little, but she is crafty. I think she might win that whole thing. Commenter #3: You guys are absolutely crazy, EVERYBODY KNOWS Phaedra Parks would use her superior legal skills and Southern charm to outsmart them all and be the only one left standing in the end. Commenter #4: All of you are idiots. Of course, Teresa will win. If she could live with Joe Giudice and Milania all of those years and not only, SURVIVE, but plaster on a smile and THRIVE, SHE will find a way to conquer all the rest of those bitches. My Money’s on HER!!)

      • Sus says:

        I’m tired of the New Jersey women. I like watching big money stuff with catty fighting. Watching Caroline and Teresa fight is too much. I think Teresa is terrified that now that Joe isn’t bringing in the bucks. That’s made her run her mouth to the tabloids for the cash. She has 4 kids, a huge house and a huge mortgage probably. I doubt very much she’s worked before the show. She’s gotten a little too big for her britches. Caroline probably has a hard time watching all that. She might be a little bit jealous of Teresa’s success.

    Boobah – Thanks for answering my question about anxiety and seasonal changes. I knew I wasn’t imagining things! Even when she was a toddler she was crankier and slept poorly at these times. Fascinating.
    We went out for dinner then to a local book store where we bought her a book and dvd on Yoga for Anxiety and Depression. I sure hope it helps her.

    • Boobah says:

      MamaZ – I am happy to help. If you ever get a chance, please shoot over to the chat page.
      Yoga is a great idea as is the book. Finding practical solutions that work can be frustrating. Believe it or not, oatmeal is one of my fail-safes.
      Keep me posted. I know its a rocky road. Hang in there.
      I hope to see you over at the chat page.

    I just popped over to SH blog to see the “girlfriend” posts about Aviva and what I could find. Interesting article about the Drescher family…I am not sure about this, but I think it is Reid’s brother that was indicted for some stock thing – didn’t read it just peeked. Also claims there will information out there about Reid and some financial shenanigans. I think Aviva is going to have a breakdown for sure. The stuff about the brother…has documents etc…so that is probably real. Wow lots of garbage coming out. People in glass houses should not throw stones.
