Danielle Staub in talks with Andy Cohen / Melissa Gorga Slandered? / Real Housewives of Miami / Project Runway

Housewives News by NoMoreDrama

Wowza.  Danielle Staub is one step closer to returning to Bravo.  TMZ caught up with her yesterday, as she was coming out of a meeting with Andy Cohen.  Danielle confirmed that her meeting included talking about the housewives, but did not come out and confirm her return to the show.  Danielle’s oldest daughter was with her for the meeting, and said that she’s signed with a modeling agency and has been working hard.  Danielle was clutching what looked like a hard copy of Andy’s book.  Asked about her thoughts on Teresa – she said she doesn’t watch the show, but from what she’s read on her twitter feeds she has empathy.  She said she hasn’t talked to any of the cast members – and has no interest in them whatsoever.   Watch the video here on TMZ’s site.

Was Melissa Gorga of the Real Housewives of New Jersey slandered by a John Karagiorgis?  The controversy is over this interview Karagiorgis gave to a blogger.  Who is John?  He’s also known as Johnny the Greek, husband of Penny, who owned the salon where Teresa and Kim D had their hair done before last year’s Posche Fashion show.  It seems like Penny and John don’t like Melissa much. In fact, they feel that Melissa has been bashing Penn’s salon (along with Kim D’s boutique).  So much so that John admits in the interview that HE brought in his friend Angelo to set Melissa up.  He also feels that Melissa had enough sway with producers to have Penny edited out of all the scenes on the show.  Rumors have been swirling for some time that Penny would like to be a housewife.  But John didn’t keep his interview to the fashion show and reality show.  He dished on Melissa’s past, relationship with Joey and assorted other people.  He also insinuated some things about her sisters.  He also claims that his wife Penny has the full story and will be spilling soon, but that she’s been advised to wait.  (Wait for someone who is willing to pay for it I’m guessing).  He has come under twitter fire since the interview was posted.  Here are a few of his tweets:

Kim Zolciak is still battling with her mother over the “porta potty” incident at her wedding.  For those of you that didn’t watch Kim’s spinoff from the Real Housewives of Atlanta, the big drama at the wedding was when Kim’s aunt refused to use the deluxe porta-potty, and insisted on entering Kim’s home while the baby was sleeping.  A big fight between Kim’s mom and husband ensued – uncharacteristic for mild manned Kroy.  Since then, it sounds like Kim’s daughters haven’t seen their grandparents, and grandmom Bonnie fought back with a law suit asking for visitation.  Kim has submitted paperwork to the judge –  read the tmz article – asking that the suit be thrown out.  (Do grandparents even have legal standing or is this just to give Kim a story line for her second season?)  Kim’s daughters have provided affidavits to the court.  Some of the things TMZ quoted:

“We both love our grandparents, but due to their actions at the wedding of [Kim and Kroy] … we have grown apart.”

The girls say they have no real desire to see their grandparents … and insist they have too much going on in their lives to be forced to hang with Granny for overnight visitations.

 “We do not live a crazy or abnormal life. We are not forced to appear on television with our mother.”

Mama Elsa and Elaine Lancaster  If you haven’t had a chance to see it yet, check out the “fight” between Mama Elsa and Elaine Lancaster from yesterday’s real housewives of Miami.  It was hilarious.  I’m not sure I can describe it, but Mama Elsa is saying things – sort of random things – to Elaine.  Elaine has this look on her face like WTF and says quietly.  I’m not sure I understand what you’re saying.  And Mama Elsa is like  – what do you mean you don’t understand – which I had to chuckle at because I had no clue what she was saying.  And then Mama Elsa gets up to leave but can’t stand and falls back down on the couch and so she tells Elaine she has to leave in her dirty red rag (beautiful dress).  It was funny only because it was Mama Elsa and she can get away with crap like that – but rude too.  Anyway – Elaine was tweeting up a storm.  Here’s a few.

And got some twitter love from the cast:

This is my dilemma.  Does being old give Mama Elsa a pass on being old?  And are you still classy when you call Mama Elsa “Chuckie” – an obvious reference to her face?  Ugh – I’d like to love them both because they are the best entertainment on the show.

Sounds like Vicki Gunvalson is in for another season of Real Housewives of Orange County. She tweeted this yesterday: “It is going to be a long day. Bring on the cameras.”  Tamra Barney and Heather DeBrow have also been spotted with camera crews in tow.  Alexis is out.  Gretchen Rossi continues to ask for prayers for Grayson, Slade’s son, who underwent brain surgery to reduce his tumors last week.


The Real Housewives of Miami “Sexting Candles”  by Krissy S

Alexia’s Venue Magazine Party

“I will hit you with my pocketbook!” – Mama Elsa

Doctora Karent makes her grand arrival at the Venue Magazine party. The rest of the ladies (except Joanna and Lisa) are already mingling inside. Karent is busily dragging everyone into photos and they slowly begin to disappear to the bar, outside, anywhere where there is no Karent.

Mama Elsa and Adriana are approached outside by Miss Elaine Lancaster. Mama Elsa is angry about the way Elaine has been badmouthing Marysol and rips into her. A beautifully hilarious exchange follows where they hurl insults at each other and ends with a defeated Elaine flowing away in her “filthy red rag.” Marysol, Ana, and Lea join the ladies outside. Lea invites Marysol to her gala (again) and they discuss Marysol’s hurt feelings over Lea’s remarks about Philippe marrying Marysol for a Green Card. Lea apologizes, they hug it out, Lea snarks, they make up. For now.

Karent finds the ladies and Adriana pulls her away to talk. Adriana confronts her about the Tweeting incident at the gallery. Alexia quickly swoops in and calls Karent on her obnoxious fame-whoring. The legitimacy of Karent’s relationship with Rodolfo comes into question again. After being continuously mocked by Alexia, Karent makes the mistake of throwing in her face that she has been praying for her son Frankie. Alexia goes nuts and kicks her out of the party.

Marta Moves in with Lisa and Lenny

“Just don’t come home with any Botox or surgeries, okay?” – Joanna

Joanna decides that allowing Marta to move in with Lisa is the best thing for her and Romain’s relationship. Joanna takes Marta and her luggage over to Lisa’s home. The ladies discuss the rumors surrounding Romain kissing a dancer at his club Mynt. Marta thinks that Joanna is being naïve by staying with him, but Joanna really wants to make things work. Lisa gives Joanna her secret to marital bliss – ordering take out and pretending like she cooked it. Awesome idea, actually.

Ana and Robert Discuss Finalizing Their Divorce

“Robert thinks that I overstep, and I have no boundaries, and Robert is absolutely right.” – Ana

Why are Ana and Robert not staying together? They seem perfect for each other! Le sigh. They sit down at work to discuss their separation and pending divorce. Ana is concerned that Robert is going to screw her over in the business if they are officially divorced. She laughingly videotapes him writing a promise to get a pre-nup with his next marriage.

Karent and Lisa Dish About the Venue Magazine Party

“So high school!” – Lisa

Lisa visits Karent and they discuss the drama that went down at the Venue Magazine party. Lisa is upset that the ladies are picking on Karent because she is vulnerable and won’t fight back. It is sad to watch Karent struggle so hard to be welcomed into the group because she wants it so badly, but she needs to stop coming on so strong and mellow out a little bit. And stop talking about Rodolfo!

Alexia and Ana Dish About the Venue Magazine Party

“The Cuban came out of me!” – Alexia

We get to see Frankie playing basketball with his Mom. It is really touching to see them interact – he is doing so well. Alexia breaks down with Ana as she talks about struggling with Frankie’s injuries. But they quickly turn to ripping on Karent for her over-eagerness to fit in and for bringing up Frankie at the Venue Magazine party.

Joanna Finds Romain’s Shady Emails to Another Woman

“Ur def a good player…please erase my texts.” – Romain’s Email

Ominous music is perfectly placed as Joanna reads an email sent by Romain to another woman. Joanna calls Marta and explains that Romain left his computer on and she read his emails. There is an email that shows photos of a vacation spot where he is planning to take the other woman with the comment “Remember everything I told u last week, I meant everything…we will be together by the end of this year.” It appears that they were sent before Valentine’s Day of this year. Marta says that she had seen a change in how Romain interacted with the family around that time and Joanna agrees. She hangs up and cries.

The Obligatory Mid-Commercial Fake Out

“When they make out, is there tongue involved?” – Lisa

We learn that Rodolfo only kisses with ‘make believe’ tongue on his soap operas and that Lenny does labiaplasties. Random.

Lisa and Marta Snuggle in Bed Over Take-Out

“I cannot believe that Romain is emailing a dancer when he has a beautiful supermodel as his fiancé!” – Lisa

Daysy the maid delivers a tray of Chinese take-out to pajama-clad Lisa and Marta who are in bed discussing the issues with Joanna and Romain. It turns out that the other woman is a dancer at Mynt. It is not clear if it is the same dancer that he was accused of kissing the other week. With these emails coming out, I can guarantee you that Romain is counting his blessings that Marta is not still living with them. She is pissed!

Ana Takes Joanna Grocery Shopping

“Is this your first time at a grocery store?” – Ana

Ana and Joanna hit up Whole Foods to grocery shop for a special dinner that Joanna is making for Romain. Joanna decides that she wants to wait to confront Romain about the emails. They discuss surface level relationship issues and Ana goes into what fell apart in her marriage. She and Robert tried marriage counseling, going away to reconnect, but that the ‘silence was deafening.’ Joanna tells her that she and Romain constantly bicker and then she drops the email bomb. Ana encourages Joanna to work on her relationship if she truly loves Romain. On a side note, I wonder if grocery shopping is really more fun in four inch Christian Louboutin leopard print stilettos?

Joanna Cooks Dinner and Confronts Romain

“I’m trying to do something nice and I’m failing at it.” – Joanna

Marta comes over to help Joanna make dinner for Romain. Not the best person to help since she hates Romain and wants Joanna to leave him. Joanna wants to fight for him since she doesn’t know if Romain actually cheated with the dancer, but says that she will walk away if that happened. They fight over Romain, they fight over cooking, they fight over cleaning. Joanna calls Ana for help with the recipe and Marta leaves. And in comes Romain. The table is set with brand new tableware from Pier One Imports (why didn’t we get to go on that shopping trip?), tapered candles, white roses, and Joanna in a super sexy orange party dress cut to her navel.

Romain is very impressed with Joanna’s efforts as this is the first dinner she has made for him in their five years together. He asks her what she wants since the dinner is such an unusual gesture. After tiptoeing around the issue, she confronts him about the emails. He confesses that he had wanted to leave her and tried to hook up with the dancer to seal the deal, but says the affair never happened. He felt left behind and ignored by Joanna and he still wants to be with her. They both want to stay together and agree to work harder on their relationship going forward.


Project Runway Finale by BB

This is it.  Christopher, Dmitry, Fabio and Melissa will all have their chance to win Season 10 of Project Runway by showing at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.  If their mini-show for the judges was any indication, they have some tweaking to do.  All of them fell short in the styling department.  None of them wowed the judges.  They have 48 hours to get their acts together.  Here we go.

Tim comes into the room and tells them his wish came true because all of them are showing in fashion week. He tells them to go home (to the hotel) and think about things, regroup, so the next morning they can reshuffle things.

The next day, they each try to see how they can take what the judges said and improve their lines.  Fabio needs to go more luxury-looking.  Dmitry needs to go younger, not so matronly.  Christopher is confused about the judges’ critiques because he thinks he made what he’s been making all season and what got him there.  He’s not sure what they want.  Melissa needs more color, so she’s going to do a dress with some color, not just black and white.  Tim comes in and gives them all a pep talk and takes them shopping at Mood with a budget of $300.  Melissa is so happy because she’s completely out of fabric.  Tim tells them to take what they already have and add to it and enhance it.  They shouldn’t be starting over.

Dmitry wants to make a new top and chooses some black silk material.  Christopher will be making a dress and he’s in a state of panic because he can’t find any fabric he wants.  Melissa picks out some bright orange leather fabric to add to her black and white collection.  Each designer has their own critiques of each other in their interviews.  Christopher thinks Dmitry needs more innovation, Dmitry thinks Christopher has lost his way and Fabio thinks Melissa needs something that will have a big impact on the runway.  Each designer meets with the hair people and Christopher is very indecisive.  This is bad because the judges have already said styling is really important.  I think the pressure is getting to young Christopher.

The models come in for their fittings and of course, Christopher is not ready.  He’s totally scrambled in his thinking.  Melissa is fixing the collar and sleeves on her jacket the way the judges suggested.  Dmitry is trying different combinations to make sure his models look young.  Fabio notices that one of Melissa’s models cannot walk in her white dress.  Melissa thinks it’s the shoes, but it’s the dress.  Chris is having a meltdown.  Dmitry doesn’t think Christopher needs to make anything new because he already has plenty of pieces.  11 p.m. comes and everyone leaves.

The next day is the last day they will be walking into the workroom.  They have until 5 p.m. and then it’s fashion lights out until the next day, runway day.  Christopher’s make-up session goes much better than his hair consultation.

Tim comes in to check on the designers.  Tim likes Melissa’s “blood orange” fabric.  Christopher says it’s red; Melissa is so pretentious saying “blood orange.”  Tim is concerned about Dmitry’s models’ hair designs taking the audience focus away from his clothes.  Chris is all over the place and Tim tells him to get set on what he’s going to do.  He tells him to finish what’s already in motion and get it together.  Tim loves Fabio’s new pieces and tells him he’s had an epiphany.  He tells Fabio’s he’s arrived and he has goose bumps.  Christopher thinks Fabio took the judges critiques and ran with them and they’ve never seen that side of him before.  Tim tells them all he’s very impressed and leaves them to finish up.  Melissa has three hours to go and starts on the very complicated orange/red piece.  Christopher is also running around like crazy.  Fabio and Dmitry are chill.  Tim comes in and gives them a 15-minute warning.  He asks Christopher why he looks so stressed out when he most of his work finished that morning.  Christopher tells him no, he has two pieces to finish.  Tim tells him that’s ridiculous.  15 minutes later, Tim tells Christopher they are done and not to be so petulant.  They all have a drink of champagne and leave the workroom.

The next morning, the designers arrive at the Mercedes Benz fashion venue at Lincoln Center, and all the last minute fittings, adjustments, and panic ensues.  Each designer is emotionally drained and none of them have gotten much sleep.  They have each given up a lot to get there.  They are in awe of the huge, long runway and the one thousand empty chairs that will be filled before the day is over.  Dmitry has a problem getting his models’ intricate hair and make-up done on time.  Melissa has some regrets about her skinny white dress.  She wishes she had widened it at the bottom.  Christopher has a problem with his model walking in his gown.  He had to trim off the bottom of it.  It’s show time!

Heidi comes out and thanks the fans for making 10 seasons of Project Runway possible.  She introduces the judges, Nina Garcia, Michael Kors, and guest judge Jennifer Hudson.  Christopher’s show is first.  His fist two looks are short dresses.  Third and fourth are shorts and tops.  The fifth look is a purple coat.  Sixth, seventh and eighth looks are long pants.  The last design on the runway is a long gown with Christopher’s signature shredded look on the bottom. His colors were mostly black and different shades of brown prints.  There were a few pops of color here and there.

Melissa is up next.  Her first look is the textured jacket with skinny pants.  Next is a long dress with a vest.  Next is a leather top and slit skirt.  Next is a bathing suit looking outfit with a shear long vest.  Lots of vests and black skinny dresses, pants, and skirts.  Very fashion forward.  The model in the white dress looks very awkward walking down the runway.  The last look is the “blood orange” leather dress.  It definitely makes a statement.

Dmitry is third.  His first is the white dress with the brown cutouts.  His clothes fit so well on the models.  I love the dress with the fringed bottom.  I really like Dmitry’s collection.  It’s very sophisticated.  I hope it’s “young” enough for the judges.

Fabio, who’s line is the most unique, is up last.  It’s pastel, flowy and beautiful.  It has a simple elegance that I really like.

I liked all of the designers’ collections.  One of the women in the audience said they were glad they were not a judge and so am I.  I think it’s going to be a very difficult decision.

Back at the studio runway, Heidi tells them she is very proud of them and they did not let them down.  Each designer has one model come out to stand beside them.  Dmitry is up first and explains his collection.  Heidi tells him she thinks he’s a great designer.  Michael calls his collection astounding.  Nina adored his sexy collection and called it highly editorial.  Jennifer said she got a chance to know Dmitry through his collection.

Melissa explains her collection.  Michael says she understands how a girl wants to look.  They nail Melissa for the white dress the model couldn’t walk in, but Jennifer liked the dress.  Nina says her hair and make-up was spot on and she loved her red dress. Nina says Melissa’s designs are cool and sexy without being slutty.

Christopher explains his collection.  Michael loved his first look and said he started with a ka-boom.  He’s the only one who dealt with print but Micael didn’t think the last gown belonged in the collection.  Jennifer loved his opening look.  Heidi said he made a lot of amazing pieces.  Nina says he has the most wonderful ability to take a fabric and make it look light, but he didn’t do it in this collection.

Fabio explains his collection.  Heidi loved, loved, loved Fabio’s collection.  It was fresh and ethereal.  Nina said Fabio listened and there’s an easiness to his clothes.  Michael said he took those Jordan almond colors and made a different fashion statement that could be interpreted into real life.  Jennifer says it was a job well done.

The models leave and Heidi asks each designer why they think they should win project runway.  They all have good answers.  They leave the runway and the judges have a big decision to make.  The judges loved that Christopher was the only one who had a distinct print but he overthought it.  He’s talented but still finding himself.

Melissa has a point of view, she has good taste, but there was no sense of surprise and how is she different from what is already out there.  Jennifer thought it was young and funky.

Fabio has an element of surprise.  Heidi didn’t see anything she didn’t like.  Heidi never thought she would ever wear a layered look in pastel colors, but she wants to now.

Michael thinks each woman judge could rock one of Dmitry’s jackets.  They also like that fringe-bottomed dress.  He has a signature look and his clothes are commercial.  Jennifer feels Dmitry could make it on his own right now and maybe Fabio would need more support but could also make it.  It’s going to be between Dmitry and Fabio.

After Christopher and Melissa are dismissed from the runway, Christopher tells Melissa if Fabio doesn’t win, he’s going to be upset.  And the winner of Season 10 of Project Runway is . . . Dmitry!  Congratulations, Dmitry.  Fabio is very gracious about being the runner-up and becomes emotional that he didn’t win for his mother.  All of Dmitry’s friends and Tim Gunn come out onstage to congratulate Dmitry.  Congratulations to all four designers.  Who knows?  We may see Christopher, Fabio and/or Melissa on a season of Project Runway all stars.

    Good morning! Looking forward to reading the post this am. Whew. Long week.

  2. Powell says:

    Happy Friday. I hope all is well. I hope you’re having good weather.

  3. Powell says:

    And Miss Rebecca, We All Hate Jill Zarin!

  4. Pghemtchick says:

    Thanks for the blogs all. Happy belated Justdee.

    I’m so excited Dimtry won! He’s been one of my favorites since early on along with Christopher. Christopher either got a bad edit or was über diva in his Th’s last night. It was a real turn off.

    • cusi77 says:

      Me too! I was cheering all Season long for Dmitry and Christopher! Christopher fell short for the finale but still I liked his new print, too bad it wasn’t a very cohesive collection… On the other hand, Dimitry’s every piece was amazing! He deserved to win!

      • PJ says:

        I think Christopher has the talent but isn’t ready just now. He let his nerves get the better of him and was scattered.

    • BB says:

      ITA about Christopher. He was and absolute baby in last night’s episode. I’m happy for Dmitry too. He’s a class act. No divaness from him.

      • Vegas Chick says:

        Thanks for the update, BB. I’ve missed the last couple of episodes and agree about Dmitry. He is an impeccable tailor and designer.

        • Called A Princess... says:

          I am glad Dmitry won too. I think Project Runaway was banking on Christopher but he lost me early on with the conflict with the older women, who left. He showed some of his true colors with a youthful lack of integrity, and his need to skirt any responsibility for his part in the conflict. JMHO.

  5. cusi77 says:

    Thank you NoMore for this Blog and for bringing The Housewives News! Amazing!

    Thanks BB for the great Project Runway Blogs! What a great Season was this one! I liked all the collections and I think that all of them did an amazing work! I totally agree with the judges in Dmitry being Project Runway winner Season 10! All his collection was impeccable and well put together, his Gown was ‘to die for’!!! The best dress on the Runway -IMO- was the red leather one from Melissa! I want that dress!

    Thanks for blogging Miami HW’s, Krissy, I am not watching it but what a good read!

    Have a happy Friday, everyone! I’ll be gone for a week. I am going to Mexico, City to visit my son and family as well as my sisters, aunts, nephews and nieces! I have not gone home for 18 months! Time to fill the love tank! Haa!

  6. Stars99 says:

    Krissy – Really GREAT job on the Miami blog! I am having such mixed feelings about Miami these days… While I like Elaine and I’m sure she wants to be on camera…. how could she POSSIBLY think that her conversation would be pleasant with Mama Elsa after she’s been bashing her daughter? She came and sat next to Elsa who was already seated and talking to Adriana… she’s the one who should have left voluntarily when the conversation went south. Karent is such an opportunist… which can also be said of so many of the others… but it’s just that she’s trying so danged hard… but really… the origin of this whole argument is over a picture being taken with an artist… who, I might add… seemed not to mind being photographed with Karent? So Adriana gets to choose who gets to be photographed with whom? I get that she really valued this artist… but I wonder if anyone else had been there… and also wanted to get a pic with him… if Adriana would have been quite so venomous with any of them? I find Karent annoying… but a screaming match? Wow. The jury’s out on Romain… I want to kick him to the curb… But it also sounds like it’s only been very recently that Joanna has cared at all about this relationship… This was the FIRST time she attempted to cook a dinner in their 5 year relationship? Whoa… And we needed new dishes for this dinner? I wonder if she graduated from the Lisa Douglas School of Dishwashing? (obscure reference alert…)

    • BB says:

      Oliver, Dahling! Are you insinuating Joanna tosses her dirty dishes out the window?

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      My mind is still not made up about Karent. I find her annoying in many ways, but, in other ways (like with her parents), she seems sweet. I wish she would kick Rodolfo to the curb because she seems to care way more about him than he does for her. She ways she wants to be married and have children. I don’t know how old she is, but the clock is ticking. Why waste time with Rodolfo? Maybe she just likes saying she has a boyfriend that is a soap star in Latin America (since she seems to get off on name dropping and knowing celebrities).

      Lisa seems really sweet, and I did not think I would like her in the first show. I thought she would be some superficial, plastic bubblehead. She is plastic, but she seems to have some depth and sincerity. She was very nice to invite Marta to come and live with them. Marta strikes me as spoiled and lazy.

      Like you, I could NOT believe that, after 5 years together, Joanna had NEVER cooked Romain a meal. I know being a model is hard work and involves lots of travel, but I know women with much busier careers that manage to COOK once in a while. JEEZ! IMO, Romain SOOO cheated on her, but she does not want to believe it. Joanna needs to recognize that being drop dead gorgeous is not enough. She is competing with a lot of Latin women in Miami who believe in nurturing their men (like COOOKING for them, among other things). A lot of those women are just as gorgeous as Joanna too.

      Romain is HOT. There was absolutely NO reason for me to just type that. I just felt like it.

      I like Ana. I like Marysol. I like Alexia. I have not yet decided whether I like or dislike Adriana. And Lea gets on my nerves with her passive-aggressive insults, followed IMMEDIATELY by horse-like laughing. She also looks like she got a stylist, a makeup artist and plastic surgery since Season 1 because she looks 10 times better than she did in Season 1.

      I LOVES Mama Elsa! That is all.

      • Stars99 says:

        Dies laffin… and totally agrees with everything… really… that should scare you… lol

      • Powell says:

        Karent is the only one that I’m not sure about too. I don’t see it as a problem w/Karent having a publicist since she’s the dentist to the Stars in Miami. I wouldn’t be surprised if many Doctors to the Stars have publicists. Lisa is fun. She’s not a ditz & I’m glad about that. She said she & Lenny have seen docs for yrs re their infertility. I don’t know how hard they’ve tried. Ana just needs to sign those dang divorce papers & stop stirring the pot w/Karent & her Latino soap opera boy toy. I think he has been texting Ana & she’s told Karent so now she just needs to let Karent figure it out.Joanna & her sis are like mother & daughter & that’s their problem. Joanna needs to treat Marta like her sis & an adult.

        • Lisa Renee says:

          Hi Powell, I agree that Ana needs to finalize her divorce. Her point about closing the business was very savvy. They close the business & he get a case “that just happens to fall in his lap” in the next month. High profile, lots of exposure, money, etc. I think it speaks to her business acumen & should be addressed if they dismantle their firm. He obviously made more than her, it appears she was home alot when their children were younger. The stuff about the pre-nup, GTFOH!! If his estate is in order their girls will get their inheritance, thats what she wants her agenda to appear to be. It could be another tool to delay from wrapping this puppy up. That was reaching & I was shocked he agreed. I have sister issues so I’m not going near those two lol. When Karents smiling in response to some one who is agitated/pissed off at her….I’d smack her, Lisa

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            I know! Why does Karent show all 65 of her teeth when someone is having an argument with her or expressing some unhappiness with her behavior? It’s so condescending. I would NOT smack her (but I’d WANT to) because I would not want to jeopardize my law license. I would tell her, “Karent, why are you showing me all 65 of your teeth when I am arguing with you? You might want to stop that smiling like a Cheshire cat at inappropriate times because, if not, MANY people will think you are NUCKING FUTS!!”

            • LaineyLainey says:

              LOL – I like that saying…”65 teeth” … you used that with Omarosa the other day and I died laughing. It sure fits here.

              • Powell says:

                Lainey & Detox’ “Nucking Futs”. Way to stay out of moderation. 🙂

                • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                  And, boy, does my little sailor mouth get me into moderation, sometimes! I don’t curse around my parents. I don’t curse around men I’m dating for a LONG time — until they piss me off. I don’t curse in the workplace. I tend to do it when I’m writing casually in this type of forum or when I’m hanging with my girls — including my girls (& guys) on this blog!!

            • Powell says:

              Like Ramona said about Heather. 🙂

      • Lisa Renee says:

        Good day To you Detox, you seem to be in better spirits :). I am enjoying Miami more than I imagined. I gave much thought to changing my name to “I’ll hit you with my pocketbook”. Your take take on the ladies is hysterical & spot on! Karent is a Star Phucker with star loosely defined with not even having to know the persons claim to fame. Lea doesn’t get on my nerves, I appreciate some one who does Passive/Agressive with such panache. I call it “kidding on the square”. It’s Lea’s stchick & she is a pro. I may not do passive IRL, i am way to overt with my hostility, I am enjoying it! But I’m phucked up like that. Joanna, I had to dig really really really deep to try & figure out why this is the first meal she cooked & doesn’t own friggin dishes. Heres what I got……she left poland at very young age to support her family. We all learned how to cook & run a kitchen at our mother’s hip. She was born a poor white stunning girl & spent no time learning what most of us take for granted. Thats all I got lol! She could have learned in the last five years. If I read that crap from Romainian we would be dining on grit bowl, not risotto. Lisa

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          Hey Lisa, (*Waving*)

          I’ve just come to terms with the fact that I will no longer be able to watch t.v. for a while. I’ll just have to try and catch things online. There are worse problems. So, I really should not be bitching about it. Yesterday, I was in the ANGER stage of “the death of the T.V.” grief, which is why I vented like a madwoman. Today, I am in the ACCEPTANCE stage of my grief.

          Lea is VERY good at being passive-aggressive. The thing is this, though, after a few times, I just SHUT passive-aggressive people RIGHT ON DOWN and tell them to KNOCK IT OFF. They get SO TIRED of me calling them out on it EVERY TIME THEY DO IT that they end up stopping it (at least with ME) and just tell me what they have to say DIRECTLY (which I respect SO MUCH MORE. Don’t be “sneaky” with what you have to say or with your insults. Don’t throw a rock and hide your hand. I cannot stand those kinds of people!).

          With Lea, because she is so influential in Miami, I would be much nicer and more diplomatic in my “shut down” (I’d say, “Lea, I’m sensing a bit of hostility from you directed my way for some reason. Let’s talk about it. Is there any particular reason for this hostility? I mean, one could think you are still very angry with me, despite your denials, and you are using an insensitive joke about a Green Card to express this anger in an unhealthy and immature way. Why don’t we do lunch one-on-one to discuss this? If not, why don’t we sign up for a couple of therapy sessions together? Our present pattern of communication is unhealthy for the both of us, don’t you think? I also find it to be a bit immature. Let’s put on our ‘big girl panties’ and be direct and solve this problem. Whatta ya say? 😀 ”

          As for Romain and Joanna, if I had read those E-Mails, I would have greeted him at the door naked, screwed his brains out. Let him go to sleep and then screwed his brains out again when he woke up. Then I’d tell him I read the E-mails and to either pack his shit and get out (if it were MY place), or I’d tell him I’d packed my shit and was getting out ASAP. He’s so hot, I’d have to get a few sex sessions in there before I kicked him to the curb, you know? And, NO, he DAMNED SURE would NOT have gotten ANYBODY’S dinner!! If he said he was hungry the next morning, I’d say, “McDonald’s is down the street. I hear they serve food. Why don’t you go and see for yourself MOTHERPHUCKER!!”

          Then I’d be dating like a madwoman again after I took a few months to heal and do a “relationship cleanse.”

        • Powell says:

          And ladies remember Romain was so mad at Marta for not washing dishes. What dishes if Joanna had to buy some. Funny.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            I mean, WHAT THE EFF? Were those fools eating on paper plates and styrofoam takeout boxes with plastic utensils the ENTIRE time? When they were out of paper plates, where they eating with toothpicks and paper towels?!! MY GOD!!

            How in the hell do you not have some damned DISHES, especially when you’re living with a man? I mean, men DO like to have a meal cooked for them every once in a while. Things like pots and pans and spatulas and forks, spoons, knives, plates, bowls, etc. HELP with that kind of thing.

            I mean, Joanna IS gorgeous, but, if she gets drunk ever so often and causes a scene; does not bother to cook (or to even buy some damned dishes that they can even put their Popeye’s chicken & biscuits on if they want to go the fast-food or takeout route. I used Popeye’s because I think it would be funny to hear Romain pronounce Popeye’s. I also think it would be funny to see him eating it); drags her damned USELESS sister with her everywhere she goes….

            …..I mean, is it any wonder Romain might want to cheat (Although Romain strikes me as the type of man to cheat on a woman who looked like Halle Berry, was a 5-star chef, was great in bed and had “the SNAPPER” [If you don’t know what the “Snapper” is, DON’T ask], spoke 35 languages, kept a beautiful home and had charm and wit for DAYS. But….still….Joanna needs to STEP IT UP & GET IT TOGETHER!!).

            No damned dishes and ain’t never cooked for her man in 5 years!! That’s a piss-poor girlfriend (and I LIKE Joanna, but I MUST speak the truth).

  7. BB says:

    Thanks for stepping in and blogging Miami Krissy S.

  8. Stars99 says:

    Thanks for doing such a great job blogging Project Runway, BB… You blog so many shows so well- I just don’t know how you do it… it amazes me, quite frankly… = ) This was the first PR season in a long time that I really wasn’t rooting for anyone to win… I don’t know if I’ve just grown tired of this show… I dunno… I just didn’t have strong feelings about their designs before the finale… Perhaps it’s because in the beginnning I really thought that amazing flower fold guy (I don’t remember his name) was gonna win the whole danged thing… but then he got eliminated cuz he didn’t demonstrate he could successfully do anything else… I think that its also the Judges… While they were all famous before this show… they’ve just gotten too bratty and hard to please… and they contradict themselves so often.

    • BB says:

      Thanks. I think you’re talking about Ven. Anyway, although the final four designers were great, none of them were knock your socks off amazing. IMO. I noticed the judges did contradict themselves a couple of times in the last few episodes. Poor Christopher didn’t know what they wanted. And they wanted Dmitry to go younger and sexy, but not too young and sexy. What? Whatever they said, Dmitry must have gotten it. Fabio got what the judges were saying too.

      • Stars99 says:

        Yes, you’re right – it was Ven… I’m SHOCKED he didn’t do better… and I do think the 4 were good designers… I think maybe it’s that they were equally good or something… I dunno… it’s tough… But – I gotta say I’m excited to see the PR All Stars – I loved Uli’s designs – she’s probably the designer whose clothes I would most like to wear… I love the flowy, light, breezy look…. I would have picked other all stars to actually be on the show… but i do love Uli… and why haven’t they brought back that Austin Scarlet / Santino 1/2 hour show? Loved that!

        • BB says:

          I can’t remember if the Austin/Santino show was on Lifetime or HGTV or some other cable station. I never watched it.

          • Powell says:

            Austin’s show was on for 2 seasons I believe. I can’t remember what network either. It was a good show. Not PR good but good.

  9. Vegas Chick says:

    Has anyone seen the latest Radar Online article about how Betheny dissed Andy Cohen by not agreeing to do WWHL? Is it me or is just too convenient and coincidental that 2 many screws loose Zarin is still seething over B’s twitter comment that trended right at the time that Jillza was making a fool out of herself on WWHL.

    • BB says:

      Seems like a coinky dink to me too. Radaronline’s sources (like Bernie the chef, etc.) are sometimes questionable at best.

      • JenFromCincy says:

        Bethenny says it’s bull:

        • VV says:

          Bitter Clown, JacDaniels, AutoTuned and what’s her name should learn from that statement about Rag Magazines. Of course, that would be to much to ask..

      • Powell says:

        BB & Jen that’s what I thought.

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      When will Jill just GIVE it up?!! JEEZ!! I’d bet 3 fat cows to 10 skinny monkeys that Jill is also the person/source who told Radar Online yesterday that RHONY was begging her back because her appearance on WWHL got so many viewers.

      She is like a damned dog with a bone. LET GO, Jill!!! LET GO!!! I cannot believe Bobby does not stop her with this foolishness.

      • Eastbayca says:

        Completely agree with you Detox, Jill needs to LET GO and GET A HOBBY!
        She is making KKB seem normal.

        • Powell says:

          According to her she’s got many hobby irons on the fire so I just don’t get it either Eastbayca.

      • Vegas Chick says:

        It’s pretty safe to assume that Bobby is afraid of saying anything else but “yes, dear.” Can you imagine living with that madness? If sainthood was possible under Judiasm, he would have been annointed a long, long time ago… 🙂

    • plainviewsue says:

      Andy already tweeted that B will be on his show next week & he will be on hers.

      • Called A Princess... says:

        After all the people Bethenny has probably drop on the way to the top, she keeps Andy around. She may have bad taste in human beings? JMHO..

        • Powell says:

          In their entertainment biz you need to have the right people on your side and although Andy may get on people’s nerves he has a lot of pull in the biz. B is no dummy.

          • Called A Princess... says:

            Powell, I still say she has bad taste in people and that comes from an upbringing where she was not very safe and that she truly never recovered from. Andy is not very trustworthy and his tabloid clown pimp persona may taint her in the future. JMHO.

    UGH! Kim Z was such an $%#@!$# about the bathroom and her mother. I can’t stand Kim Z. She is so trashy.

      I never saw the appeal either Sus.

    • melthehound says:

      The girls say they have no real desire to see their grandparents … and insist they have too much going on in their lives to be forced to hang with Granny for overnight visitations.

      I guess they are stars now, just like their mamma, Sideboob ZB.

      I’ve seen a lot of family feuds over a lot of stupid things but this crapper fight really takes the cake.

      • 1969sus says:

        Mine spend a month with Grandma and Grandpa in the summer. We are waiting for the time when they say they don’t have the interest but so far it hasn’t happened.

        It’s shame. No one will live your kids more than Grandma and Grandpa. It’s special.


        • Powell says:

          True. Any kid that has grandparents in their life is lucky. I didn’t have that.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          I TOTALL agree 1969, Grandparent love is VERY special. I spent LOTS of time with mine growing up and LOVED every minute of it.

          With the exception of my paternal grandfather who died when I was 6 (but of whom I still have very fond memories because he spoiled me rotten and was super-nice), all of my grandparents lived a long time and died when I was in my 20’s & 30’s.

          BOTH of my grandmothers spoiled me rotten, and we all were just delighted being around each other.

          My maternal grandfather was o.k. He just SCREAMED everything because he was damned near DEAF. That’s why I’d refuse to sit in church with him (“DETOX, GO GET ME A CHURCH PROGRAM!!!” He thought this was a whisper, but, No, it was a SCREAM that would cause everybody to turn around. He went to mass faithfully, although I don’t know why. He’d fall asleep with his head hanging back over the pew and his mouth WIDE open within 2 minutes of the service starting EVERY…..SINGLE…..TIME!! My grandmother would shove him awake to get communion, and then they’d leave at the end. I mean, how do you get anything out of it if you are ASLEEP the whole damned time?! I never understood that, but he went faithfully anyway).

          He also could not read or write, so he’d call one of his kids or grandkids EVERY weekend to have us look in the t.v. guide to see if one of the following was on: 1) A Western; 2) an Elvis Presley movie; or 3) a baseball game. He knew his numbers, so he’d write the numbers down. Oh yeah, he and my grandmother also loved “The Lawrence Welk Show.”

          He and my grandmother BICKERED CONSTANTLY EVERY…..DAMNED…..DAY, but they were married for 62 years. When she died, he said, “I’ll be with you soon, Honey.” It’s like the life just kinda went out of him, although all of his kids and even his grandkids tried to keep him busy. He died 9 months to the EXACT DAY that she died. I guess he missed the bickering. *Shrug*

          • Powell says:

            Detox I suspect your grandfather would say he ” went” to church. 🙂

          • LaineyLainey says:

            You have great memories, Detox. That is really special.

          • jeang says:

            Detox, sometimes I will be channel surfing and see Lawrence Welk on the PBS and watch for awhile and remember the good times when my granny and mama and daddy would watch it with us. Back in those days us in central florida only had like 2 or 3 channels and we watched whatever was on. Whenever Liberace came on my sister and me would sit on the floor mesmerized by his handsomeness and when he winked we would giggle. I saw him in concert in the 80’s and he was awesome and so nice.

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              I remember the days when there were only 3-5 channels. I do remember when Liberace would have “specials.” I always remember his swinging his cape up before he sat down to play the piano. He always wore lots of rings too. 🙂

      • 1969sus says:

        I do have to admit that I didn’t know that you could get fancy portapotties until I saw it at KimZ’s wedding.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          I know. Those Port-A-Potties were the SHIT! No pun intended. 😉

        • Powell says:

          1969sus Who Knew? 🙂 When I have my multi-million Dollar wedding I’ll get portapotties w/marble floors & wood grain sinks. 🙂

          • Sus says:

            I know it! They are on my list for when the little darling gets married.
            I had to use one (gross green box) a couple of weeks ago at the golf course. I bitched to my husband that they could upgrade it some!

          • jeang says:

            Dont forget the ever popular granite countertops though.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          I know, that was amazing. I’m glad I’m not the only one who didn’t know about those fancy portapotties!

      • Powell says:

        Totally. The reason Kim can’t see that is because it has to be about Kim. She is very lucky to have Kroy and now 2 sons. I just hope she doesn’t eff it up.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          I REALLY hope Kim has turned over a new leaf for the sake of those boys and for Kroy, who seems like a sweetheart.

          Old habits die hard, though.

    • Powell says:

      I do like Kim. I don’t like what she did to Kandi nor what she did to her mom at the wedding. Kim can be fun but Kim can also be selfish.

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      I could not stand Kim at one time either. Now, I’m just neutral on her because she makes me laugh. I would NEVER have her as a friend or work with her, though, because she has a history of using people, refusing to pay them and then discarding them when they are no longer useful to her.

      And she is DEFINITELY pure TRASH that just always happens to LUCK UP somehow!

      I’m not sure if this Grandmother/Kim’s Mother Stuff is fake and just being used as a plotline for her new show. Part of me believes it’s true because Kim’s mother seems a little “off”. Another part of me believes it’s fake because the show IS on BRAVO, after all!!

      • Powell says:

        Detox w/all that Bravo has done the last 2 seasons of NJ I wouldn’t put it pass them to have faked Kim & Karen’s fight(s).

    • Donna says:

      In a way I understood why Kim wanted to keep her mother out of the house. Her mother didn’t like the shoes that Kim bought for her, so she went “shopping” in Kim’s closet.

      There are more than 1 bathroom in Kim’s house, why did Karen and her sister go straight to Kim’s bathroom, talking very loud and waking up the baby. Kroy’s parents didn’t have a problem with porta potty.

      Also, they were renting the house. It could be possible, that allowing the wedding to be held at the house, contracts were signed that Kim & Kroy would have security to keep guests out of the house, thus ultra deluxe porta potties.

      • Sus says:

        It’s her mother though. Is she the normal wedding “guest”? They wouldn’t have gotten loud if they were let in to the house.

        • Donna says:

          The aunt started it, she went into the tent and complained to everyone around, then Kim’s mother wanted to throw her weight around.

          • Called A Princess... says:

            Can we say Bravo set up. I do not believe any of it. The conflict is to keep us interested in her new show. This conflict is all they have as a tie in for the new season. Non reality is perfect for Kim because she has very little relationship with the truth. Her parents are weird but so is she, and her brood. JMHO.

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              I hope BRAVO shows Kim’s ass getting put out of Ms. Kendra Davis’ house!! Ms. Kendra Davis does NOT play, Honey, and she made that VERY CLEAR to Kim. She was like, “Kim, Sweetheart, I am NOT Sweetie, and I am NOT Kandi. You will NOT take advantage of and use ME. Oh, NO MA’AM!! Get your trashy ASS outta my house….RIGHT DAMNED NOW!! Oh, so you’re pregnant, and you still have a toddler and 2 teenage daughters to worry about? Guess who does NOT give a PHUCK?! ME!! Get the hell outta my house before I have the authorities come and have you FORCEFULLY removed!”

              When Kim tried to lie about that, Ms. Kendra Davis had ALL of her E-Mails and other paperwork and documentation to back her version of the story up and put Kim’s ass on BLAST.

              I LOVED it.

              I betcha that is one woman that Kim will make sure she always steers clear of while they both live in Atlanta.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                Users keep using until they meet up with their version of Kendra Davis. They spend a looooonnnnng time using people, til they meet up with someone who won’t be manipulated. The user recoups and moves on the next “nice, decent person” aka the next mark.

                • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                  Yep. I sure hope she really loves Kroy, and he is not one of her “marks.”

              • jeang says:

                Yes loved me some Kendra Davis putting that lazy whorehopping #bitch in her place.

          • jeang says:

            I dont understand why they didnt just lock all the doors to the house and have security on every door only letting in the approved people.

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              That’s why part of me thinks that Kim’s whole “fight” with her Mother might be fake and just part of a BRAVO plot line.

      • Powell says:

        Kim’s mother was acting way too entitled during Kim’s prep & wedding day Yes. But to make it easy on herself Kim should have just let her mom get whatever shoes as Kim is an obsessive shopper and would not miss the shoes. As far as the bathroom I totally would not have all those guests in my house either but my family, Yes, they would be allowed to use the bathroom in my house. Designate which BRs can be used. No wedding drama. Kim and Karen were wrong w/the whole wedding process.

        • Called A Princess... says:

          There is some none sense going on because the house has more then one bathroom. The baby crying sounded like a recording. I do not think that Karen would wake a baby up on purpose. Kim is just as entitled as her mother. They both seem very thirsty for attention. JMHO.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            You know how beef is cured and then it shrivels up into beef jerky? Kim’s Mama’s face looks like some kinda white beef jerky. She looks dehydrated (i.e., DRIED UP) and a bit anorexic.

            I mean, you could take her makeup off, put her in some Wal-Mart clothes, let her hair air dry, and Kim’s Mom would fit right in with a bunch of crackheads or meth heads just sittin’ out on a corner or sidewalk — HOMELESS. *Shrug*

            • Sus says:

              Deflate Kim’s foobs, don’t change her animal hair on her head for a few days and she’d fit right in there too.

              • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                Now, that you mention it, Sus, she SURE would. I could just see Kim and her Mom sitting there while Kim bummed some ciggies off a bum or two and smoked furiously while she drank some Mad Dog (or other cheap alcohol) out of a paper bag while she and her Mom passed it back and forth between them.

            • 1969sus says:

              Beef Jerky is so right!

              • Called A Princess... says:

                I have a habit of looking at the floor when unattractive people are on the screen. Kim’s mother is on of those times when I just can’t view for long. Her face is not meant for prime time viewing, maybe late afternoon is better, while it is still light, outside. The father is not much better but his is mostly behavioral. I would not leave my daughters or sons alone with him, ever, period. JMHO.

                • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

    Have you all seen Chrissy and Mr Jones on VH1? They are from the original Love & Hip Hop. I didn’t know they got their own show. Poor Chrissy is still trying to get Jim to be responsible as a man and share in their relationship. He wants a baby but she’s like “I don’t want to raise a baby on my own cause you don’t want to participate in our relationship”. They are a hot mess.

    • BB says:

      No I haven’t. I think couples therapy has enough hot messes for me to get my “fix.” Lol.

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      I’ve seen a couple of episodes. Chrissy has been with Jim so long now that she should realize that he IS what he IS. The only way he is going to change is if HE wants to do so. She can’t force him. I mean, she finally got the ring she’d been bitching about for for so long. I’m wondering if she thought their being engaged would change him. One should never fall in love with a person’s “potential.” One should be prepared to love that person AS IS because he/she might not EVER change.

      I agree with her position on having a baby. She better freeze those eggs quick, though, because she’s kinda up there in age when it comes to the baby-making department. On “Hollywood Ex-es” when Mayte Garcia (Prince’s ex-wife) went to look into having her eggs frozen, I think the doctor told her either that they would NOT freeze the eggs of a person over the age of 35 or that they might not be able to get enough viable eggs (I forget. I just remember that she was crushed by whatever the doc told her). I’m pretty sure Chrissy is older than 35.

      I find her mole to be distracting. That has NOTHING to do with the dynamics of the show. I just felt like typing it.

      • Called A Princess... says:

        I find the chip on her shoulder to be distracting. She seems to want to fight the whole universe, one minute at a time. JMHO.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          You DO have a point. The mole distracts me the MOST. I mean, she should have that thing removed because it could turn cancerous.

          And she does have a HUGE chip on her shoulder. I cannot quite figure out why, though. Maybe it’s because it took the movement of Heaven & Earth to FINALLY get Jim Jones to propose.

          Jim Jones DAMNED sure would not have had ME pressed like that.

          He always looks like he needs to WASH. I mean, I could see being in a room and him coming out of the shower and me looking him up and down before I said, “Oh…NO!!! Mama Jones must’ve been too busy drinking, getting high and running behind men because she has OBVIOUSLY not taught you the proper way to wash. Get in that shower while I carefully show you how to do it. Afterwards, I will leave a STEP-BY-STEP list to remind you exactly what you must do. Don’t worry. It will became 2nd nature and a habit in NO time! It might even land you a better girlfriend than that HOOD RAT, Chrissy!! No need for thanks. Doing things like this adds a jewel to the heavenly crown God will give me when I enter the pearly gates. Don’t mention it!

            He needs a couple intense baths. And maybe a flea dip. When I first watched the show I could not believe she was fussing about his self. I thought it might be about money promised but never delivered. She seems like the type that wants to always get paid in full. IMO.

          • Powell says:

            Her mole is kinda distracting. I think she thinks if it as a beauty mark. You’re right about having it removed for the cancer reason. It’s too big. She could have a derm remove it then give her a tat beauty mark.

            And Detox her GFs want to start a fashion line of motorcycle jackets. When they 1st said fashion line I was like here we go. Another reality Star wanting to start a FL but the motorcycle jackets sounds like a good idea. But one wants high-end & the other wants it priced for regular people’s money. That’s a tough one cause I saw both their points. Mama JJ is one crazy lady. I remember on Love & Hip Hop they couldn’t get along at first. She’s getting on my nerves saying “give me my grand baby”. I’m like shut up! Detox didn’t Mama JJ try to be a rapper on L&HH? I thought that was way cookoo.

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              Girl, not only did Mama Jones try to be a rapper, she had an actual DANCE to go along with the rap. Don’t get me wrong. I love Mama Jones for her sheer entertainment value.

              HOWEVER…..we were speaking of grandmothers and grandfathers earlier. I have been saying for YEARS now that they just don’t MAKE grandmothers like they USED to. I mean, I could NEVER see either of my grandparents in a CLUB, much less rapping and making up their own DANCES

              Now, grandmothers are 35-year-olds who are still JOOKIN’ in the CLUBS and will CUSS their children out if ANY of them ask them to BABYSIT!!

              I mean my grandmothers LOVED having us over all the time. Babysitting was a sheer joy to them. We’d also do stuff like bake cookies and cakes and sit on the front porch while they told us stories about years past and/or made homemade ice cream. One of my grandmothers cooked us WHATEVER we wanted to eat. And I and my brothers would ALWAYS come back from both sets of grandparents’ houses in “sugar comas” because they always had CANDY! YUM!! Now, this DID cause me to go through a bit of a “chubby” phase as a pre-teen. I remember crying to my paternal grandmother one time when one of my cousins called me “FAT.” She said, “Oh, come, now, Cher!! You NOT Fat. You FLUFFY and you PRETTY, PRETTY” (in her heavy Cajun accent).

              Many “Grandmothers” of today were teen Mom’s who now cuss their granchildren OUT before they open a 40 and pop a cigarette in their mouth before they head back out to the CLUB. SMH.

              Chrissy MIGHT not want to have a child out of fear of Mama Jones being that child’s grandmother (Like I said, I LOVE Mama Jones, but “grandmother” material she is NOT!!). Google “Mama Jones Rap Video Psychotic;” look at that video; and TELL me you would want your child to be influenced by THAT!!!!

    *chains Mel to the board* – not going anywhere mister!!!

    thanks for all of the blogs – even though I no longer watch Miami I enjoy reading the blogs and keeping up with all of these fiesty ladies – as for Kim – she is about Kim first every time, but I do believe that she wants very much to make a happy home with Kroy – I think maybe she sees what is possible, wants it very badly, but just can’t seem to let go of some of her old self just yet – I have no idea what is between her and her Mom but it started long ago, and we all know how these shows affect families – especially those that are already in conflict –

    I grew up with my Grandmother living with us – it is something I treasure to this day – and even though my home life can be hectic, chaotic, loud and seemingly intent on going off the rails at any given moment, having the twins and my daughter living with us has given us way more blessings than it has heartaches –

    *hugs entire board really hard*

      (((shamrock))). Grandparents can be the BEST!!

    • Lisa Renee says:

      Shamrock, how lucky you had your grandmother to live with. My daughter begged my mom to live with us. I always believed that my sole purpose on this earth was to bring my mom & my DD’s souls together. I was just the host body. My mom had a smile for my daughter that could only be elicited when looking at her choco baby. A smile I had never seen before. Coolest thing ever. Their spirits & connection & interests & just everything was much more than my mom & I ever had & gave me the greatest joy I have ever known. My mom loved me no doubt, but I did spend over 20 years thanking her for not killing me. I had really lousy grandmothers, cruel even. I had my grandfather from my mom’s side but he passed when I was 13. When I would whine as a kid he would start to sing “Mona Lisa” hahahaha he spoiled & loved me in a way I never knew again. That is why I am so excited for BB. She is going to shock the hell outta herself when her grandbaby is born. Hugs back to you, Lisa

          The louder I moaned the louder he sang. When I stopped he would take me to the candy store. He drank home made red wine with black Cherry Soda, picked his teeth with a steak knife & had the best fireworks every 4th of July.

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

  14. VV says:

    B cleared that rumor fast. I don’t follow her on Twitter anymore. Her tweets are boring, anyways mainly about her products. Teresa does a lot of that too…but…at least she mixes it with pictures of her and Juicy and pics of the girls. None of that from B the closest we get are the food that Bryn eats and the toys Bryn plays with. No pictures of her Jason or Bryn or the three together. Don’t miss her tweets at all. Oh, she would tweet on occasions a pic of Cookie.

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      She used to tweet pics of Bryn all the time. I wonder why she stopped. Maybe she has decided it’s better for Bryn’s pics to remain private (although the paparazzi WILL photograph Bryn if she is with Bethenny anywhere publically).

      I wonder how old Cookie is now.

      Boston me too! I secretly hope Danielle comes back on and outs everyone of Mego and Joego’s lies. It would be poetic justice!

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        I never IN A MILLION YEARS thought I would ever say this, but I hope Danielle comes back too. BRAVO is probably just messing with us, though. Maybe they’ll have her on some show that has to do with her daughter’s modeling career.

        If she DOES come back to RHONJ, it would be VERY interesting. I finally looked at the TMZ video clip yesterday, and she said, “I haven’t watched the show, but I have paid attention to things on Twitter. From what I’ve read, I have great empathy and compassion for Teresa.” (If I were 3 of the other cast mates [Jac, Melissa & Caroline], I’d be like Scooby-Doo and say, “RUH ROH!!).

        • Lisa Renee says:

          Detox, I have an overwhelming need to find a box that says break glass in case of emergency! Love ya to pieces, saying with the all due respect HAVE YOU FLIPPED YOUR LID????? Who is this person calling themselves Detox. Houston, we have a mutha phuckin problem. If this is what happens from loss of TV I swear I have an extra one I will mail it to you, ASAP! XO Lisa

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            Oh, I know Danielle is CRAZY in some ways, but pitting Jac’s CRAZY against HER CRAZY would be t.v. GOLD!! Watching Caroline trying to figure out how to handle and neutralize Danielle while Joey and Melissa also squirmed would make me LMAO.

            Teresa would, hopefully, be off in her own world pushing her cookbooks, hair products & alky-hol while Joe Giudice brought his girlfriend in to help take care of the kids while Teresa was away.

            Gia would be a bit suspicious about this new “babysitter.”

            Milania would have it figured out from DAY 1 and call her a “HOOKER that is NOT a COOKER for me because I do not EAT what HOOKERS cook! I’m telling my Mom AS SOON AS she gets back from WHEREVER the hell she IS right now!!! Dad, you’re a stupid troll poo-poo head who SUCKS!! And your girlfriend is not pretty at all because she looks like a damned DRAGON!!”

            Joe Giudice would pay her off, and she would decide to KEEP her mouth shut as long as he promised to keep those payments coming — MONTHLY and RIGHT ON TIME!!

            Gabriella would have had herself emancipated legally in between seasons. She would probably have figured out how to get a stipend from the government that allows her to have her own place and pay for food while she continued to attend school until she could get out of town and change her name and claim to have NEVER met a Giudice in her LIFE!!

            Audriana would still be too young too know what is going on. She’d probably let the babysitter carry her around and take her to the park to play on the swings and stuff.

            Teresa would come back and THANK “the babysitter” profusely and agree to Joe’s brand new idea that they have a FULL-TIME Nanny that lives in another new addition he built to their house while she was away. And she’d still be taking 75 pix a day of her kids and Joe and continue to call him “amazing”!

    Good morning and happy Friday everyone! Thanks to all who are keeping this blog going. I watch most of the shows discussed here & can hardly wait to read the blogs & posts to see if anyone is thinking what I’m thinking!! Gotta say I have not watched JZ on WWHL yet-I’m saving it as my Friday nite treat! I wanna savor that crazy over @ over again. I should point out that Bravo showed the scary island season on the same day as JZ’s interview. Did Andy want the crazy fresh in our minds while we watched the interview, lest we all be taken in? 😊When Lulu was on WWHL w/Lauren Conrad-Lauren was giving her all kinds of side eye-especially when Lulu was talking about coming out w/a jewelry line & that hid awful necklace she was wearing. Hilarious. I read Famewhorgas blog & they talked the Danielle Staub/Andy Cohen meeting. Seems like Meego’s chickens will come home to roost next season. Her & JoeGo are disgusting & I cannot wait til a little payback comes their way. Please Andy put Penny & Johnny the Greek on the show-allow some of Meego’s dirt to blow in her face. Lets see how Kathy stands up to defend her. Poison Joe doesn’t care what happens as long as he can release his poison. There’s also allegations that she cheats on Jie & that Joey may not be his son. Come on season 5-Bravo don’t let me down!

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

    Well, I had something very exciting happen on twitter yesterday. A tweet from Carole Radz which had me screaming!! Here it is:

    Carole Radziwill@CaroleRadziwill

    @plainviewsue Hi Plainviewsue. You asked me a question on my first appearance on Andys show. Hope u enjoyed the season. Who is Jill?

    First the fact that she would tweet me, remember me from a tweet that Andy read had me flying! But then to say Who is Jill???? Howling!!!!!!!

    Jill gave an interview to Huntington Post (her good friend Rob Shuter) and says in it that Carole & Heather should be fired, along with who ever hired them. Yeah, that Jill. What a nice person.

    So I think we should go into production of Who is Jill? t shirts!!!! Who’s in??????

    From OhNoTheDidn’t

    Renee Graziano is going away for a while.

    The star of the VH1’s Mob Wives has entered a rehabilitation center in Miami, her publicist confirmed to PEOPLE, adding that “it is not for any current drug or alcohol use of any kind.”

    The rep says: “Her choice to enter rehab was made entirely on her own. She has made this decision for the betterment of her son AJ [Pagan]’s life, as well as to improve her physical, mental and spiritual health.”

    Graziano, 41, is the daughter of Anthony “TG” Graziano, former consigliere of the Bonanno family. She is reportedly at Miami’s Transitions rehab center.

    It has been a difficult year for Graziano, whose ex-husband, Hector “Junior” Pagan, gave information to authorities that helped put her father in prison.

      • Lisa Renee says:

        Detox, I like her too. I hope she gets what she needs. For all her histrionics, Renee is one tough broad. She took a licking & kept on ticking on a level of real life drama I had ever seen on TV. Classic example of worlds colliding & the collateral damage that comes with it. Lisa

              IA. I feel so sorry for her. I can’t even imagine the pain of that kind of betrayal.

              • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                I can’t imagine it either. It seems like RICO has effectively cut the Mob off at the knees. There is NO way Junior would still be walking around ALIVE if he would have done that mess before RICO was enacted.

      • Called A Princess... says:

        The bill was , I think I read, $55,000. It was allegedly never paid. The caterer was a friend of Kim G. There did not seem to be that many people, at the party. IMO.

          I’m so sick of the faux money. I want to see HWs that aren’t on the brink of financial disaster!

          • Called A Princess... says:

            I do not see that much incentive for a real wealthy person to be on Bravo unless we are talking Beverly Hills or New York. Some of the issues might be that they would not want to work with posers, con artist or deal with tax issues. Bravo production loves to count peoples money and spending habits. IMO.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          I think the caterer/party planner was actually a friend of Kim D., although considering Kim D. and Kim G’s “family connection,” he’s probably a friend to both of them.

    • princesspindy says:

  29. LaineyLainey says:

    I’m finally reading the blogs and while I understand Mama Elsa, I can totally see how others may not. I don’t think she said “red rag”, I think she said “red rug”…she had heard her daughter tell the story of the “red carpet” at last year’s charity event. She was close, but not quite LOL! “red carpet/red rug” – it’s a common error that people make when English is not their first language. She had the right idea. I have a friend who says “I have no cents.” She means to say “I have no cash” and people who are listening to her words (and not entirely thinking about the context) they think she is saying “I have no sense”.

    Don’t know if it was posted or not yet: Carole’s book found a home.

    “Real Housewife” Carole Radziwill has landed a six-figure deal to publish her first novel, “The Widow’s Guide to Sex & Dating.” We’re told that following a bidding war, Radziwill signed a two-book deal with Henry Holt & Co. worth $700,000. The second book will be a collection of essays and is tentatively titled “Girl’s Guide to Life.” On her site, Radziwill describes her novel as being about “death, sex and love, in that order.” The award-winning journalist was married to ABC News producer Anthony Radziwill, who died in 1999 following a battle with cancer. She’s recently been dating Russ Irwin, a touring member of Aerosmith. Radziwill confirmed to us she’d signed with a major publisher but declined to say which one.”

    I thought I heard red rag/rug and thought that is what she meant as well. I so loved it when she yanked the back of Karents skirt down when she was bending over. She is a riot. Who knew she would be so loved by everyone?. I guess that is what is most encouraging, that in spite of the horrendous job that plastic surgeon did on her, she carries on and with her personality and quirks manages to win us over. Lisa too is turning out to be a surprise and who cannot sympathize with poor Alexia, what with that thug of a son, the older lazy and entitled one, and have to deal daily with helping the poor younger son through his physical and mental rehabilitation due to that car accident.

  34. RealhouseWifeva says:

    I just want to put in my 2 cents that this whole kim z drama with her mom is, in my opinion, FAKE FAKE FAKE. It’s just a stupid storyline for next season. She has always been close with her parents but now this breaks them up? Whatever. I don’t buy it. Last season was the wedding and her new season will be about her mom and home drama. I personally am shocked that so many people tuned in to watch Kim each week. I don’t find her interesting at all. I only saw parts of her show in reruns but that wasn’t enough to catch my attentions. These ladies are all getting very savvy at setting up their storylines for the next season. That mansion only had one bathroom? Puh-lease. I miss when reality shows were actually, you know, real. And Now Andy is discussing plot lines with Danielle staub?

    • Powell says:

      Realhousewifeva I miss the real in reality tv too. Andy said they listen to the viewers. I don’t want Danielle back. I wonder what the stats are for viewers for & against D coming back?

      • Rebecca says:

        In my amateur opinion (cuz nobody can figure out the idiot brains at Bravo), I think they may be putting together a special on past housewives. They followed around the DC housewives and have yet to show any footage. Danielle is meeting with Andy. I bet the intent was to have Jill (man I hate Jill Zarin) on the follow-up show too and she demanded her own time alone with Andy on camera.

        If this was true I would love to see what happened to the original OC cast and Tammy Knickerbocker.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          You could be right, Rebecca. That sounds like the most plausible explanation.

          Thus far, NO BRAVO housewife has been brought back after being let go/fired(unless my memory fails me, and I am incorrect). Can you imagine what Jill Zarin would DO if BRAVO brought Danielle back to RHONJ and did NOT bring Jill back to RHONY? I don’t know what Jill would do, but I’m sure it would be quite newsworthy.

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        That would be an interesting poll. I wish BRAVO would have that poll and announce it so people could go to their site and vote.

        It sure does explain Juicy’s comments on the reunion.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          Which comments?

          Thanks for the link, BTW, Rebecca. I don’t know if it’s because I’m tired or what, but that article left me a bit confused. Did Joey buy the house (the one NOT in Patterson) and put his parents IN it? Or did he use his parents’ home in Patterson as collateral?

          I know that the Gorga’s are NOT what they portray themselves to be, but even I am having a hard time believing that Joey would scam his OWN father!! I’m wondering if there could be some type of reasonable explanation (that does NOT involve scamming his father).

          Could THIS be the reason Joey’s father is closer to Joe Giudice than his own son? I could see OTHER reasons, but THIS is even unbelievable to ME.

          • Nancy says:

            Hi Detox,
            I feel so sorry for his parents. They have worked so hard to be able to give their children something better and this is what they get in return? Wow.
            I don’t know how he and M sleep at nights.

            How are you doing today?

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              Hi Nancy,

              I’m not sure if I quite understand the documents in this link. So, I can’t say I feel sorry for Teresa & Joey’s parents for THAT yet. I DO feel sorry for them to have their only son and daughter estranged and for them to have their family so fractured, though. If it DOES turn out that Joey scammed his father, I hope he tells himself, “Shame on ME!!” because that is just LOW….DOWN!!

              I’m fair to middlin’. Knock wood, but I seem to be back to normal physically. Now, I’m back to catching up on contract assignments and back to seriously focusing on finding a PERMANENT job with BENEFITS again. As soon as I get benefits, I’m getting everything checked from the rooter to the tooter! 😀

              I managed to watch t.v. tonight because my Dad finally went back to work. He’ll be working nights for the next few evenings. So, I WILL be taking full advantage of his t.v. and Netflix before my Mom kicks me out of their room every night, and I move to the den to watch. YAY!!

              How are YOU? How is George? How is Emily? How are you enjoying all of these baseball games (about which I am totally CLUELESS)?

            It looks like he took out a second mortgage on a house he owned for $500,000, adding his father a co-signer. Then his father took out another $100,000 line of credit, most likely for his son to use as a balloon payment on another property. Then Joey sells to house to his parents for $440,000. Joey’s friend then takes out two small loans using the same house as collateral. Joey’s friend is on the deed selling the house outright. There’s no record of him buying the house from the Gorgas though.

            I don’t know how this sale went through at all. This title is so cloudy, it shocks me. Wow.

      I read this. Absolutely disgusting.

      Also don’t know if this came up, and I didn’t see them, but apparently the angel from God Joe Gorga put pictures on twitter of his kids. A picture of the older boy urinating in the toilet and a picture of Antonia’s butt.

      Now, I did not see them & this was such a huge outpouring of disgust towards him that he removed the pictures. This is what he tweeted:

      Joe Gorga‏@joegorga: I thought my kids butts were so cute. Didn’t know there were so many crazies out there

      Joe, have u ever heard of pedophiles going on line????? Oh, lord he is such an idiot. And I totally believe that there is soooooooooo much we don’t know about Joe Gorga and his parents. I commend Teresa for not saying anything. I truly do believe that she is the one that doesn’t want garbage to come out about her family, which is why I still believe she had no idea Melissa.

      I saw this last night, and looked at the other posts involved. It is so lopsided I wonder if the author has an agenda. I wrote that there, as you see it, and my remark was erased. Interesting…
      There is some interesting information she copied and posted though.

    Hi Cityside.
    I just saw your post upthread. I’m glad you are back home and watching it with us. Emily can’t see anymore but I keep her up to date re: the score. She’s happy because her daddy is happy.
    (Deep down I hate the San Fran Giants because they hate my LA Dodgers) I hope you are enjoying the game with your dog. 🙂
    p.s. Sorry we are ahead though.

    I don’t watch Miami, but Joanne Krupa (is that her name) has joined the line of Bravolebities who think its their job to say things against Teresa. There must be a club to join.

    In an interview with Radar on line, she is quoted as saying Teresa chose fame over family. Are you kidding me????? That is Melissa!!

    Joanne is being crucified on twitter & she is doing the old Jill Zarin, by blocking everyone. I don’t even follow her & I tweeted her asking her why she said that & that it’s Melissa who chose fame. She blocked me!

    From what I hear, when Melissa was in Miami recently, she hung out with Miami housewives………………………plot thickens!!

    • Nancy says:

      Is Joanne the lawyer?

    • I think Joanna is trying to bring the drama and up the ratings. If she can’t do it by fighting with Adriana – then why not hook onto Teresa’s star.

      • BB says:

        Sounds like a Bravo idea to me. Hey, let’s not keep the fighting within the franchises only, let’s expand the bitchiness.

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      It’s hard for me not to believe that BRAVO is not encouraging these housewives to say some of this stuff. I know Kyle came out a few weeks ago and said she felt so sorry for Teresa and everything she was going through with her family on television (I guess she can relate).

      Nene came out and said she loves “it when Teresa and Melissa fight. It’s fun to watch!!” She did take up for Teresa on Twitter when it came to the Kathy/Teresa fight over their parents, though.

      Marisa Zanuck said, “Teresa seems like a bitch.” And within a few days, Joanna Krupa comes out and says something negative about Teresa too.

      Melissa has also given a couple of interviews lately saying how Teresa should get OFF the show because it is hurting her family and that, unlike Teresa, the minute the show hurts HER family, she will IMMEDIATELY get off the show.

      If I were granted some time to speak with Melissa about her latest article JUDGING Teresa for staying on the show, I would say the following:

      “First of all, Melissa, YOUR family IS hurting by being on the show, if you consider your in-laws? However, if you are only considering YOUR immediate family, then I’m glad Teresa followed producer’s (probable) orders and mentioned ‘that bald guy’ whose name you (IMMEDIATELY knew was Angelo, even though you claimed that you’d seen him ‘somewhere before, I just can’t remember where’) and what he said when the 2 of you were in the bathroom during the final episode because, hey, she was only looking out for HER family too — her IMMEDIATE family of 4 daughters and her husband!!

      So, it looks like you and Teresa are NOW on the SAME page with who you consider your ‘family.’

      And, PLEASE STOP either directly being the source or getting one of your minions to be the source for the articles talking about how much Teresa’s daughters are ‘suffering’ because she is on the show. They’d suffer even more if their parents had no way to pay off their enormous debt (and no possible way to maybe one day have enough money to send them to college when and if their debt is paid off or significantly reduced).

      STOP trying to push her off the show and Mind Your Own Damned Business!!

      Speaking of children being ‘hurt’ by their Mother being on the show, the recent internet articles talking about your shoplifting arrest; your alleged promiscuous past where you were passed around from man to man before you ‘settled’ for Joey after seeing his house; your alleged sleeping with people in exchange for drugs, jewelry, etc.; you and Joey’s alleged serious financial problems (like your power recently being shut off for 3 days); your alleged cheating on Joey after you married him(allegedly MORE THAN ONCE and with MORE THAN ONE MAN) and the possibility that your THIRD child might allegedly not even BE for Joey….I’d shut my mouth about ‘children being hurt’ by their Mother being on a reality show because, Honey, it looks like you will soon have NO room to talk (if that is not the case ALREADY)!!

      Once something is on the internet, it’s there forever, and just like Teresa’s children, your children will TOO one day read these negative things that have been said about you on the worldwide web.

      Teresa is DONE with you and Joey, and she is moving on with her life by focusing on her businesses, paying off her debt, taking care of her children and being there for her husband, her mother and her father.

      I suggest you do the same by focusing on your (nonexistent) music career and on your own husband and your own children. DON’T worry about TERESA’s and keep your mouth SHUT about her and her children, you manipulative, conniving, lying TRASHBOX HOOKER (Yes, I said it, and I will NOT take it back because that is exactly what I see when I look at you, Melissa, and it is what I have BEEN seeing for a LOOOOOOONG time now when it comes to you. You do not fool me one damned bit!)

      Thank you for your time. 😀 ”

      JMHO. 😀

      • Rebecca says:

        You said is sista…. Melissa does put the HO is HOusewife.

      • plainviewsue says:

        OMG, Detox. I LOVE YOU!!!!!! That was excellent!!!!!!!!!!

      • klmh says:

        I find the opinions of the other housewives interesting reading. I don’t remember this happening before though. Maybe they can’t stand to see this happening to families either. Its just too hurtful, for everyone concerned. imo

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Oh my goodness, Detox – – this is a great post!!! I wonder if she is waging her own anti-Tre campaign with the other housewives. Jill did it with Bethenny, remember?

        Teresa has incredible strength, I don’t know if I could stand against so much public criticism and humiliation. I just don’t think too many people could. When Mel was on Wendy Williams she said, “you have nice music career” and to Teresa when Teresa suggested doing a cooking show, Wendy said: “No, nobody cares.” How Rude. And then Anderson Cooper, Kelly and Mark and now Marisa Zanuck and Joanna Krupa all weighing in in a very public way, spreading more negativity about Teresa. It’s too much!!

        Like you, Detox, I don’t GET how Mel would say (with a straight face), “I’ll quit as soon as the show hurts my family.” She SET OUT to hurt the Guidices and her husband’s relationship with his sister. Isn’t her husband her family????

    San Francisco defense is amazing tonight.

  40. Nancy says:

    Sorry Cityside. See you in San Francisco in a few days.

  41. VV says:

    I remember Diva a few months commenting over at Empress site that she had some dirt on Joey Gorga. I wonder if she was referring to the article above.

  42. LaineyLainey says:

    OT – Halloween Costumes. We’re going to a halloween party… Here are my two ideas. 1) My husband would go as Mitt Romney and I would go as a woman in a binder. He would wear a suit and tie and I could break a large copy paper box and fashion it to look like a binder. 2) I would go as Frida Kahlo with the unibrow, flowers in my hair, shawl, red lipstick, etc and my husband would go as Vincent Van Gogh (Diego Rivera is too hard to do). But for Vincent we could spr ay his hair red, buy him a red beard, get him a fedora and put a bloody bandage on his ear? Maybe we could both walk in holding a palette? Or an easel? My husband thinks no one will know Frida. (because he doesn’t know her, I’m sad to say). LOL!

    Any thoughts? any other ideas?

    • Cusi77 says:

      Lainey_ I love, love the Frida Khalo idea! It is brilliant! (I grew up in Coyoacan, Mexico, City. Several blocks away from Frida Khalo’s house, where she was born and shared that house with Diego Rivera. One block away from her house, you can find Leon Trosky’s house…) How nice to know that you know who this great Mexican Artist was!

      The Van Gogh idea for your husband is great as well! With no ear, hysterical!

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Cool Cusi!!! that you saw where she lived with Diego. Is it a historical site? My husband’s concern is that no one else will know who Frida is (because HE didn’t know her). I also think Mr. Lazy likes the idea of the Mitt Romney “costume” because it is basically a conservative suit -navy blue, white shirt with a red tie. Easy costume for him and requires no make up, painted hair, hats, fake blood.

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      I pick #2, Lainey.

    • princesspindy says:

      I like the binder idea, imho. It’s topical and you could put something funny on the spine of the binder… http://bindersfullofwomen.tumblr.com/ just for laughs

    • California35 says:

      Great idea – I go for the artists one 🙂

    • klmh says:

      That is one fantastic idea! Love it. You will definitely win first prize.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Hi guys! Thanks for weighing in on my costume ideas. I personally really wanted to dress up as Frida. I might put that costume together in case I have somewhere to go in costume by myself. But since this party is for couples, I will have to go with what my hubby prefers and he wants the easier costume (Mitt Romney). But The “artist” idea is so creative, right?? I love it that ya’ll liked my ideas! Going to the store today to get the materials for the binder!!!

  43. California35 says:

    My concern when I read of e possibility of getting Danielle back in NJ, is that then Jill may be back in NY :-/

    I feel bad for both of them, for different reasons for each, but mainly because they not be moving on if they keep trying to be in that show.

    I understand that Bravo may be trying to do something new, and bringing old housewives would be new. For me the only way I have thought of getting old and new wives in the mix, is if there is some kind of theme. The mean girls of real housewives or the outcastes or the misunderstood or whatever. Get them all together and see what happens 😛

    • lovemamaearth says:

      Why on earth would they bring the has-beens back?

      Lainey– fun ideas about the costumes. Let us know what you choose. 🙂

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Hi Lovemama – we are going to do the Mitt Romney/Binder full of Woman costume.

        • lovemamaearth says:

          Have a great time with it. 🙂 (Make sure you can sit down in it though. If DH goes as Mitt, does he have a tux? You know they lounge around in fancy threads. Thanks for the chuckles.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      The possibilities are endless!
