Big Brother Special Wednesday Live Eviction by BB
Head of Household Ian has put Shane and Jenn on the block. Shane wins the Power of Veto and also wins a special surprise and can take someone with him. He chooses Danielle. They leave and it feels surreal to them to be out of the house. Their surprise is they get to watch the Fierce Five from the Women’s Olympics Gymnastics Gold Medal Winning team perform. Remember the house has not watched the Olympics, so they don’t even know the team won the gold medal. The team introduces themselves and they all have an awkward conversation back and forth.
You can tell Shane and Danielle don’t know a whole lot about women’s gymnastics even though Danielle says she loves gymnastics and “tumbling.” Uh, gymnastics is a little more than tumbling, Danielle. After the show, Danielle and Shane are all lovey-dovey in the car riding back to the house. Is Danielle really as naïve as she seems? They come back and tell the other houseguests where they’ve been and they all seem so excited about it – NOT!
At the Veto meeting, Shane saves himself. Ian then puts Danielle up for eviction against Jenn. Dan is ecstatic to be in the final four and says he’s willing to do anything to win the money, including stabbing anyone in the back. Shane and Dan both vote to evict Jenn.
The winner of the Head of Household and guaranteed to be in the final three is Danielle! Surely (don’t call me Shirley) she’s not going to put Shane on the block. We won’t find out until tomorrow night’s live show.
RHONY Cast Blogs by RamonaCoaster
I couldn’t help but wonder. . .what makes the Perfect House Guest?
The perfect houseguest, above all, arrives on time and brings all her necessary equipment such as bathing suit, tennis racquet, medications — certainly the hostess cannot be responsible for lending personal articles to her guests, especially her medications. The perfect houseguest will stay on her medication.
Don’t forget to include prosthetic limbs especially if you need them for swimming.
The perfect guest sees that her luggage is compact, and has appropriate attire for all occasions. She should appear in the dining room at breakfast dressed for the morning’s activity. The proper attire for breakfast is a simple frock with spectator shorts.
What’s wrong with nude? It’s breezy and you may even get less UTIs.
No guest should expect to have every hour of her day planned for her, nor expect to spend each waking minute with her hostess.
But everyone wants to spend time with cool Carole especially when you call them crazy b*tches and f*cking idiots under your breath.
The polite guest refrains from the truth if the truth is disconcerting. It is appropriate to suggest to the hostess a dipping sauce but inappropriate to suggest sex with the chef.
Sex with the chef could upgrade you to dumplings instead of spring rolls.
A good guest will roll with the punches. Expect the unexpected; things may not go exactly as you hoped. A good guest will break her nose on the window but not let it spoil everyone’s fun. A good guest should not drink the entire supply of house wine, however she should let go of expectations and help to drink some of it.
Just be happy your guest(s) didn’t just stick their open mouths under the wine spout.
If you are a pampered rich girl and can’t get on without a maid, forewarn the hostess to that effect. If your hostess has a personal butler on staff, he can unpack your bag. A polite guest will not take up his time, however, with her luggage alone, nor should she expect him to lay out her outfits, or pick up undergarments, or again, provide sex.
The butler will be too busy answering the door from all the random people your guest will invite over to have sex with them.
Do not give orders to your hostess’ house staff, use up all the towels in the bathroom, toss cigarettes about, get into political or religious arguments with other guests, flirt or make unkind remarks about your hostess’ friends, or again, drink all the wine. In fact, all of the behaviors which annoy your family at home should be avoided when you’re visiting. Your family has to tolerate you, but your hostess can strike you from her list. And probably will.
Let’s not forget, do not ask guests to pull your finger. I can barely tolerate family when they ask me to do that.
Don’t expect the household to revolve around you. If you have anxieties do not bother your hostess or her guests about them, over and over and over. Do not expect your hostess to provide parades or banners or parties. A good hostess will greet you with open arms, settle you in and then take care of her other guests, staff and plans. She will not drool on your husband. She has a lot on her mind.
This was meant for Aviva and I’ll have to agree with this one. Also a good hostess would shut crazy behavior down.
Don’t invite visitors without asking. While some hostesses are OK with you having a friend, it is wise and gracious to clear it with them first. This is especially true if you are planning on a group of French speaking Italians, or anyone at odd hours who is dressed as a pirate. It is always unacceptable to wake up the other house guests in the middle of the night.
And if your guest does invite someone over to bugger them, you don’t out which entry way they prefer on a cable reality tv show.
Being a good houseguest means being good company, be good company. Withhold complaints and get into the swing of things, be it vibrant dinner conversation or adventurous activities. A fun time for guest and hostess alike is why you’re there in the first place, and it’s what will get you invited back. A good houseguest wakes up hung over in the morning and gossips with her hostess about the previous night’s activities by the pool.
Unless you invite your significant others on a girls’ trip. Then the other girls without dates can complain all they want regarding the change in dynamics.
Lastly, always remember that you’re a guest: Remember to be gracious — after all, she is letting you stay in her rented home. Let your hostess know that you appreciate her kindness. It is usually considerate to reciprocate an invitation but in this case don’t bother. I’m busy.
*Thanks in part to Elinor Ames’ Book of Etiquette (1939) and a bunch of other stuff.
And if your host/hostess is Bravo, you ignore all of the above.
Once we laughed about it we were genuinely looking to enjoy the remaining two days with all of the ladies. Aviva did not want to give us even that. She barged in and began chastising us like two little girls! Who does she think she is?
She thinks she’s Queen Aviva who is used to getting what she wants by throwing a tantrum. She’s good at it. Looks like she’s had plenty of practice.
And then. . .double date dinner. What is this!?! It turned from a girls’ trip to a fragmented mess. I don’t think Carole has much experience hosting.
Maybe you should write a blog about being a proper hostess. A proper hostess invites everyone who are your guests out to dinner.
Then, it was convenient to have a couples dinner since her “rock-n-roll sometimes lover” who lives in LA and tours most of the year was in St. Barths and they could. . .
Before we left, Russ was not a significant other. CarolE said he would be working most the time. He was staying in a hotel. She candidly admitted herself to A-Diva while shopping that they both slept with other people.
Wonder why Aviva isn’t being as judgmental with Carole as she is with you. But then again, she hasn’t slept with Harry Dubin.
Isn’t it funny how after telling us all over and over about every single one of her phobias and anxieties, that A-Diva then says, “Meh, the plane wasn’t so bad. . .”, THEN WHY KEEP BRINGING IT UP! She cannot let anything go. Also she keeps telling us how embarrassing it is for her to have so many anxieties. . .THEN WHY KEEP talking about them?! I understand it must be difficult to be neurotic. . .but after a while enough is enough. Get help. You’re a grown up now.
If she didn’t have these neuroses, she’d be a pretty dull girl. What else could she possibly talk about?
Shame on A-Diva for saying those things. I am on a downward spiral because I like to let loose and have fun with my girlfriends on vacation? I may be down but I am not out. (You may remember that line from my soft burlesque skit that I wrote last season!)
If that’s what you call a downward spiral, then what do you call throwing nameless insults at friends and dumping your endless phobias on us time and time again?
Good point Sonja. Aviva seems to be projecting her insecurities onto you. Like most housewives I’m sure things will come out about Aviva that would make Aviva cringe. I think some info already has.
I was very disappointed to see the other side of Reid. I felt better knowing that A-Diva had Reid as her back bone and crutch. Hearing him make such a nasty comment about the other women who are not at the table being overweight really hurt.
Aviva better not gain another ounce if she wants to keep Reid as her minion.
Or in this case, took it off. I’m glad Carole got nekked in the pool also. I was starting to think her sexy talk was just that — all talk!
I’m beginning to see a pattern here. Sonja nude, Carole nude. Sonja sleeps around, Carole sleeps around. Sonja with crazy friend, Carole with crazy friend. (I prefer the kind of crazy Sonja hangs out with. Way more fun.)
I am hurt and surprised that Carole would voice to others that she was offended that I did not come to Russ’ concert. That was never on the agenda and was a last minute invitation. Plus, we had an early flight the next morning! I think it’s obvious why I did not want to go after a day from hell with her and her new BFF A-Diva.
Someone on production staff must suck at giving out itineraries unless it’s another drama creating tool.
I’d like to end my blog with two quotes from Helen Gurley Brown (Rest In Peace) “Every woman’s body is beautiful and should be celebrated,” and “You don’t have to belong to someone else in order to be an admirable person. And sex is a wonderful thing”
Top Chef Masters “Foodie Flash Mob” by BB
I must lead a very sheltered life. I had never heard of a Diner En Blanc before. From what information I can gather (because it’s such a secret), a Diner En Blanc is a “flash mob” type of picnic or dinner where the invitees are sworn to secrecy about the time and the place and everyone shows up for an impromptu dinner or picnic dressed in white. They are normally held outdoors, happen in most major cities, and I think the idea originated in Paris. There are some truly spectacular pictures on this link of Diners from around the world. Be sure to take a peek. It makes me want to be invited to one.
The competition is down to the final four chefs; Lorena, Patricia, Chris and Kerry. I can tell you now I do not want Patricia to win this competition. I re-watched last week’s episode and saw some things I had previously missed about how Patricia put Lorena down. She even critiqued the way Lorena was cutting up her veggies. I mean really. I don’t care who wins out of Lorena, Chris and Kerry, but Patricia is not this fan’s favorite.
Curtis greets them in the TC kitchen. There is a red line on the floor dividing the kitchen in half. For the quick fire challenge there will be two pairs, but each person must make their own dish. The problem is that one person on each team has to gather the ingredients and one team member has to do all the cooking. Chris and Patricia are one team and Lorena and Kerry on the other team.
Chris and Patricia like working together. Patricia and Lorena are on the pantry side and Chris and Kerry are on the cooking side. The cooking side is telling the pantry side what ingredients they want from the pantry and fridge and the pantry side has to tell the cooking side how to cook the ingredients for their dishes. Kerry and Lorena aren’t really communicating, but Patricia and Chris are calm as cucumbers. Lorena doesn’t get her rice plated on time and she’s not too happy with Kerry, who had to cook her dish.
Las Vegas oddsmaker Johnny Avello judges this quick fire. Chris made a duck dish, Patricia made a crusted Tuna dish, Kerry made a Shrimp dish, and Lorena made a salmon dish (without the rice). The winning dish was Kerry’s shrimp pasta so they are the winning team. Kerry and Lorena split $5,000 for their charities.
For the elimination challenge, the chefs will be preparing a dinner for 300 people, who will be bringing their own tables, chairs, and tableware for a Diner en Blanc. They will be serving gourmet picnic style. They will each prepare three dishes for 75 people (80 including the critics). They are all glad this is an individual challenge, even though Chris and Patricia bounce ideas off of each other. Patricia is thinking Italian with an Asian influence. Lorena is thinking something with a Latin flair (of course) with something sweet included. Chris is making swordfish as one of his dishes. One of Lorena’s dishes is spicy chicken salad. I am really getting tired of hearing how highly Patricia thinks of herself and how badly she puts Lorena down. It’s like she’s saying “I’m up here, you’re down there.” Lorena knows her presentation is not going to be the best, but she’s excited about the next day.
The chefs are running across the courtyard with all of their food in white bags. Their food has been chilling overnight. Lorena is not happy about the consistency of her chocolate mousse. All of a sudden people dressed in white show up and start assembling tables and putting their wine glasses, plates and cutlery on the tables. They indicate the start of the meal by waving white handkerchiefs in the air. This is really what you call a high-end picnic. Ruth, James, Frances are the critics along with Curtis and the two founders of the diner en blanc. The chefs start handing out their large picnic bags to each table they are responsible for. Of course the critics get to taste it all. One of the diners calls Lorena’s jalapeno chocolate mousse stupid good, her diners really love it. I can’t keep up with all of the critics’ comments on the chefs’ dishes. I’m just going to watch them enjoy. Patricia’s main dish was Bison. I can tell all of these diners are very knowledgeable about food. Chris served a pork pate along with his swordfish. Kerry served a grilled chicken as his main dish. It seems the critics really love Kerry’s dishes. I don’t think he’s going home. Hey, I just saw Robin Leach, who is looking how shall I say, rather portly! Caviar Dreams and Champagne Wishes!
When the diners finish eating, they clean up and take everything with them. It’s like they were never there. It’s crunch time and the chefs line up in front of the critics table. The critics loved Kerry’s dishes. They weren’t impressed with Lorena’s chocolate mousse. The only thing they had to say about Chris’s swordfish was that it was a little dry. They wished Patricia’s bison could have been warm and her bread was really stale. It looks like the men are ok and the women are in trouble. The critics’ favorites were Kerry and Chris of course. The overall favorite and winner of $10,000 is Chris. That means one of the women will be going home. All the chefs have to go back to the wine room while the critics deliberate. Patricia’s dishes were a good idea, but the flavors weren’t that good. She picked the wrong foods to prepare the night before and serve the next day. Ruth hated Lorena’s chicken salad. Ouch! Frances didn’t like it either. James didn’t like Lorena’s mousse. So who is going home? I know who I want to go home. Will I get my wish? Yes! Patricia is going home. I’m not the least bit sad about it.
Little Newton – Watch What Happens Live
Tonight’s guests Kevin Jonas and Lance Bass for a boyband extravaganda! The bartender is a guy named “Merv Jonas”, who is supposed to be the Jo Bros reject. The poll question is, “Which is the best boy band of all time?” NKOTB, BSB, NSYNC, Jonas Bros, or One Direction. As a child of the 90s/00s, I vote BSB! I must say, Lance Bass looks amazing!
After showing a clip of Lorena Garcia plowing by an old man in Whole Foods, the topic turns to X Factor and more importantly, Britney. Kevin says he loves Britney on the show and did very well. Andy said she was lucid and Lance agrees saying Britney never needed a comeback because she never left the scene.
Andy shows some great old photos of Kevin and Lance back in the day. The pictures were so horrible yet so great. How fashion has evolved! Andy then has Lance guess the Jon-ASS by making him guess which Joe Bro’s butt is on the screen. Lance gets most of them wrong which is kind of a good thing it would be a bit strange if he got all of them right. Stupid game!
NEW GAME! Andy plays along this time and all three of them have to recreate a Jo Bro pose. Again… what? Why? Did they really not have enough to talk about to fill in air time? I will say they did a good job recreating the poses.
The guys get some questions and reveal they both wear boxer/briefs which everyone needed to know. Kevin Jonas is asked his stance on marriage equality and he says everyone deserves the right to love!!
Lance plays plead the fifth and before the questions even start, Lance says he was on Wendy Williams earlier in the day and she brought up when Andy said he and Lance hooked up. Lance even says Andy was a good kisser! The exchange is a bit awkward and Andy is flustered!
Who was the worst dancer in NSYNC? Chris Kirkpatrick
Who had the most sex on tour? Chris Kirkpatrick!
Name one female celebrity that hit on you before you came out? Danielle Fishel (Topanga)
A preview clip of RHOM is aired and Lance says he is close friends with Lea Black. I personally can’t wait for RHOM to start and RHONJ to end btw…. Anyway, Lance gets asked if there will be an NSYNC reunion and he says that they are not any closer to having a reunion. Lance hints that Justin is the hold up by saying that he’s doing movies and getting married and probably won’t be doing music for a while (which disappoints me). Kevin says that the Jonas Brothers will be releasing a new album, first in three years. Lance is asked if he accepted Perez’s apology he gave on the show Sunday, for outing him years back. Lance says he has no beef and forgives him. Lance seems like such a nice guy.
Kevin Jonas’ turn to plead the fifth and here are his questions:
Did you ever hook up with a fan? No
Did your parents force you to wear the purity rings? No
Name one male celebrity that you would swim in the man pond with? Channing Tatum
The guys are asked about a statement Justin Bieber made saying he doesn’t want to be another teen heart throb. Kevin says he shouldn’t bite the hand that feeds him. He and Lance agree that he should embrace it and evolve with your fans because they grow up too! Good point guys! Lance is asked if he ever was bi while he was in NSYNC but he says no, he was always gay. I think that question made Andy feel awkward because he moved on QUICK.
The actual game of the show is called Dirty Pop Quiz where the guys get categories and they need to fill in the blanks until the category fills up but they have to get all the spaces correct or they don’t win the category. The guys get most of them but don’t get any full categories correct.
The guys are asked to pick each other’s favorite songs. Kevin says Girlfriend and Lance says Love Bug. A caller asks if there are any stories from being on tour they wouldn’t want their parents to know. Kevin just says that there were many days where they didn’t sleep. Lame story guys!
Andy’s Mazel for the show went to Joanna Krupa for her staged photo shoot of her washing her car with a hose… and then washing herself. The Jackhole goes to Levi Johnson for naming his daughter Breeze Beretta, after a gun. Well deserved Jackhole.
Poll results show a neck and neck almost tie with BSB getting 26% of the votes, NSYNC with 25%, NKOTB with 20%, Jonas with 18% and One Direction with 11%. The guys do the shotski and they call it a night!
The LynnFam extends very Happy Birthday wishes to our good friend Ms. Jxn! Have a lovely day, Lady! 🙂
