Bethenny Caught in her PJs by NoMoreDrama
Bethenny Frankel had one of those days yesterday. According to her tweets, both she and Bryn were ill, and Cookie needed to pee and she needed to go to the store, so she left the house in her PJs. Probably not the best idea, and she could have run a comb through her hair given she lives in NY and there are press everywhere, but anyway – haven’t all of us been in that situation at one time or another?
“Jason is on a golf trip & Bryn & I are sick & had to walk cookie & go to the store so we went old school & went in our pjs.”
“Just when I thought it couldn’t get more glamorous, the paparazzi just caught me in this get up.”
“I wouldn’t say what I was wearing was acceptable, but w a sick child & mommy & a dog that has to pee, it is what it is.”
Real Housewives of Atlanta by RamonaCoaster
From the episode we hear that Kim is not going on the trip despite giving the girls the dates when she can go. Then Kim says she never confirmed the dates for the trip. Nene starts screaming at her and everyone is telling her to calm down. Kim gets up to leave and in the next scene she is outside by the car while she pushes the camera out of her way which was totally uncalled for. Where the hell did Kroy come from and why is he threatening the producer and Steven the cameraman? Hello, fourth wall? Kroy came out of nowhere and threatens a lawsuit. Cynthia mentions how she passed up some opportunity to make money in order to accommodate Kim’s dates. Then Kandi remembered some opportunity she passed up to make money to accommodate Kim. Did Kim just say the N- word? What the heck is going on? We got some flashback episodes regarding Kim’s altercations with the other women and why Kim doesn’t want to be around them. Cynthia points out that they are not Kim’s priority anymore. Well, actually her job being a Bravo housewife is not her priority anymore. They all agree that Kim wants to pull away. The attention turns towards Kenya and Walter. Kandi realizes she knows Walter while Kenya already knew that because Walter told her that he asked Kandi out once upon a time. Kenya isn’t upset about it anymore because she likes Kandi. Nene jokes about her album coming out next week and starting law school in the fall and how busy she is and that Kandi should make a music video about making excuses aka Kim. Love Nene’s line to Kim, “Don’t let the door hit you where the good lord split you.”
Kandi is with her daughter and mother. Kandi’s mother is asking about Riley getting along with Todd. Her mother likes Todd and Kandi is happy about that. Kandi mentions that Kim is not going on the trip and all the excuses that Kim comes up with for not attending events. Kandi’s momma didn’t like how Kim’s mother was escorted out of the wedding. Momma points out that if that’s how she treats her mother, everyone else is not far off. Kim is all about her man, her kids and herself.
Peter and Cynthia are meeting Kordell and Porsha for dinner. Peter is a big football fan and a fan of Kordell’s. Porsha shows up alone and tells them Kordell couldn’t make it and Peter is disappointed. Porsha recounts how she met her husband at a party. Peter’s mouth is watering when he hears that Kordell plays golf. Peter thinks he is good at golf (he better be good because you can’t fake being good at golf). Cynthia tells Porsha that Kenya invited herself on the trip to Anguilla. Cynthia wouldn’t normally invite someone she doesn’t know on a trip but she invites Porsha and Kordell so she has someone to side with her against Kenya. Cynthia is employing “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” strategy.
They are at the airport and when Peter sees Kordell he kind of freaks out but tries not to show it. Kandi shows up without her man. Kenya shows up with Walter and pretends not to see Porsha. Nene, Gregg, the lawyer and Apollo show up and Todd surprises Kandi. Kenya hopes someone gets proposed to.
They arrive in Anguilla and are on a boat. Kenya takes control of the boat and is a speed demon. Everyone is holding onto their weaves and Cynthia’s boob pops out of her dress.
Nene, Gregg, Cynthia and Peter take a private car to the hotel while everyone else takes the bus. Kenya is asking Walter about diamonds and what kind of diamonds he shops for. She is fishing to see if Walter will propose to her.
They arrive at the hotel and the hostess thanks Peter for choosing Ani villas where they are staying.
Kenya is complaining about her junior suite that there is no tub, no bathroom closet and it is small. Kenya is crying into a pillow and Walter is asking if she took her medicine. The lawyer and Apollo is happy with the room when they start discussing possibly catching STDs from using the hot tub. Cynthia and Peter are discussing how Nene and Gregg are getting frisky with each other. Peter thinks Cynthia should make up for their honeymoon on this trip because their honeymoon turned into a family trip when Cynthia brought her nine year old daughter.
They are all hanging out at the pool and Nene is whispering to Gregg asking him what’s holding him back. Kenya pushes Apollo into the pool and the lawyer is not liking what’s going on. Kenya is being way too flirty with another woman’s man.
They meet for breakfast the next morning. The lawyer comes out wearing a black fishnet dress with a thong showing off her donkey booty making sure Apollo’s eyes are only on her. I love that Kandi snaps her thong when she sees it. They are on another boat trip touring the island. Nene starts whining about taking boats all the time and not going in a car. The couples go their own separate ways to have some romantic alone time with a camera crew in tow. Kenya mentions wanting to elope while Walter coughs a little. Walter seems a little skittish and asks her to wait three days. Kandi and Todd gets the explicit list of drinks from the waitress and Todd orders the “F— me sideways.” Kandi talks about the first time she has a drink, she felt a warm low down tickle. The lawyer arranges for a performance from the Klassique dance academy with the Minister of Tourism. The girls try to learn the dance. Nene shows off her stripper moves. Now Kenya is flirting with Peter rubbing her donkey booty on him.
Nene is showing Kenya how to get extra dollars off of Walter with her stripper moves.
Kenya flirts with some Filipino guy who is rather tall for a Filipino to get Walter jealous but it is not working. Kenya asks the lawyer an inappropriate question “if she were to give Apollo a present, which two friends would she choose to be with her and Apollo.” I guess we will see the fall out from that question next week.
Amazing Race – Part 1 – Dec 9, 2012 by MelTheHound
Welcome back race fans… Here is where we stand.
- Trey and Alexis -Dating couple (Texas)
- Jaymes (blonde) and James (brunette) – Chippendales
- Josh and Brent – Goat Farmers (Beekmans)
- Natlalie and Nadiya – Twins
I’m going to apologize in advance for some of my language here. I am going to say some things, No one has ever accused me of being PC, because I am not. There are two parts to this recap and hopefully I get them both to you today.
Last week you’ll recall, That it was a non elimination round and the twins were told they would have to do a speed bump. That is the good news. The bad news is, they are still in the race. These two heifers have gone beyond rubbing my last nerve raw and my tolerance level with them is at Zero. So, again, I’ll apologize in advance, for some of the things I’m about to say, if they offend you all.
Okay let’s get this party started. Last week they were in a castle in Spain for the pit stop. The order was, Texas (still like them, sort of), Chippers (grew to like them), Beekmans (grew to like them), Twinzies, (never could stand them now, hate them). They are to get back to Barcelona and then get on a train to France. I didn’t catch the city but their ultimate goal for this particular part of the race is to get to the detour. All 4 teams are on the train and the heifers are running their mouths that they hope Beekmans aren’t anywhere near them. You see, The other two teams, Texas and Chippers, are supposed to push them, the twins, across the finish line. That’s the half baked notion these two bitches have in their heads. Can I just say… These two should NOT wear spandex looking stretch pants. Too far? Well, if not, we’ll see if I can push it there with these two. For the record, I shouldn’t and don’t wear them either. Anyway, while they’re all flapping their lips, Beekmans, who are in the next compartment, overhear them. Apparently ole Josh and Brent never got the memo that they were in a race against an Alliance designed to ensure the Twins win the race. Got all that?
They get to France, and from there they are supposed to get into their Ford Fusions (I think) along with 8 empty what look like egg crates. Don’t know yet where they’ll deliver them but I’m betting they better not show up anywhere with out them. The trio of teams asks someone for directions while the Beekmans decide to just follow them. This of course, broils the Twinzies behinds. I could almost see the smoke. As far as they are concerned, the ‘Evil Gay Guys’ as I heard them say at one point, don’t even belong in this race with the cool kids. The teams all find their way to Leonardo da Vinci’s resting place which is located in a large city and they have to go to the church to get the clue they are after. That clue takes them to the gardens where they have to locate the statue of a dog. Okay… The teams of course don’t know where they are going so the power trio finds a grounds keeper and begin howling and barking at him like damn fools. Up steps Josh, who apparently speaks French and simply asks the man where the statue is. Much to the surprise of the others.
At the stone dog statue, they find their clue. It is also where the Speed Bump is for Heckle and Jeckle. You know, those annoying crows. We’ll get the speed bump out of the way first. They are to find a woman inside a house where they will help her put her corset on and lace it up. Once done properly, they can go back to the dog and get their clue. Meanwhile, as all were running along to get back to their cars to go the detour, those two heifers had the freaking nerve to expect any of their alliance to Wait for them to do the speed bump. Either Heckle or Jeckle was running her mouth at and about the Beekmans, and one of them, I think Brent, told them to have fun at the speed bump. While the crows are squawking their way through the speed bump the other three teams leave. Texas takes off on their own, while for some reason, Chippers decide to follow the Beekmans, who appear to get lost (but they are not, they just aren’t there yet). They must have been lost for a little bit because the crows beat them to the detour location. Texas was already there doing their task.
The Detour – Apparently, in France, or at least this part of it, they still hunt Deer on horseback using packs of Fox Hounds or Coon Hounds, not sure which. Something with a good sniffer that never gives up until told to. One of the tasks is to prepare and serve the day’s meal for this pack of dogs. Looked to be about 50 of them. The other task was to use a horse and plow to cultivate a stretch of dirt leaving 4 reasonably straight rows for planting. This was at some festival type thing and it appears that these areas are used for some sort of competition. They are not plowing a field. They pick a horse (Clydesdale) and a Plow and get to it. One guides the horse, the other operates and steers the plow. Only two teams can do one of the tasks at a time. That is, if 3 want to do the plow gig, then 1 must wait for someone to finish. As it ends up, Beekmans and Crows are feeding the dogs (chopping and cleaning raw meat for them to eat) while Texas and Chippers do the plow thing.
At the cutting table, These Two Bitches are REALLY letting the Beekmans have it for daring to still be there. It is here where I heard either Heckle or Jeckle make the remark about those evil gay guys. I don’t know which, it doesn’t make a woodpeckers ass bit of difference to me. They are both pigs, errr, crows. Phil should have just sent these two packing and made the final leg of the race 2 teams instead of 3. Would anyone have been sad not to see these crows on the show anymore? Me neither. I think I can honestly say that if these two women were the only ones left on the face of the earth, population growth would come to a screeching halt. Meanwhile, Trey and Lexi seem to be handling the plow task pretty well. Texas and Chippers get that task done and can be on their way. As they leave the other two teams are still preparing the meals for the dogs, with the crows crowing at the evil gays all along. Well, guess what.. Beekmans beat them out of there. Seems they had a better cutting strategy to minimize the work so kudos to them. You know what it looks like when 50 dogs attack a pile of food at the same time? Stay out of their way. I really wish they had bitten the crows but, the teams were out of there before the Hounds were released.
Their next destination is the Roadblock… They are to go to a once was Granite mine that has been turned into a mushroom farm. This is where those crates come into play. They are shown 3 different mushrooms and must then navigate through this dark underground maze to find the mushroom patches and collect 10 each of the 3 they were shown. Lexi goes in first followed by Jaymes. Texas finishes first, and they get to leave first. They are told by one of the locals that the place they are looking for is only a couple minutes away. The location they are looking for is The Castle of the Ladies (I will let you find the French pronunciation of that). Chippers also get directions. Guess who got the right directions? Not Texas, but Chippers so they beat Trey and Lexi to the pit stop for a first place finish. Castles in this area of France are apparently like the bungalows in subdivisions. Everyone had one it looks like. The place Texas was sent to, was the wrong one and they were still 15 minutes (at least) from the right one. As I said, Chippers won this leg and as their prize, they each get 2013 Ford Escapes with all the bells and whistles. James, is pleased as punch. In addition to helping take care of his mom, he wanted to win her a new car. Mission accomplished.
While Chippers and Texas are crossing the finish line, Beekmans arrive at the cave (did I mention that this was a cave?). Brent takes on the task and gets started just as the crows arrive. So it’s a race for 3rd place from here on out. Heckle or Jeckle, don’t know which, does the task for their team. She is also the first one finished by about 10 minutes. Doesn’t look good for our Beekmans, those ‘evil gays’ or ‘the gay guys’ (sorry folks I want to drive home how disgusting I think the crows are).. The only hope for the Beekmans is if the Crows went the wrong way. Either Josh or Brent notes that it isn’t likely because they are on fire today. I do have to admit that when I think they blew it, there they were. Just like a pair of cockroaches. Guess what though? The Crows, went the wrong way. Blowing their 10 minute lead all to hell. The usual editing tricks allow us to believe the Twins beat the Beekmans to the pit stop but…. They Did NOT 😀 Beekmans take third place and the final spot in the final 3. DING DONG THOSE BITCHES ARE GONE! I only wish it had happened sooner. That segment ended with them saying something but I wasn’t going to torture the hound or myself any longer with the sounds of their voices. I for one don’t care to mention them again (but I know I probably will).
There you have Part 1 friends. Put in my own unique way.
Amazing Race – Part 2 – Dec 9, 2012 by MelTheHound
Welcome back race fans… Here is where we stand.
- Trey and Alexis -Dating couple (Texas)
- Jaymes (blonde) and James (brunette) – Chippendales
- Josh and Brent – Goat Farmers (Beekmans)
Notice what’s missing from that list above? 😀
Final leg of the race. FINALLY (though I wish they had waited until next week to show it). In case you missed it, Chippers are currently in first place, Texas is in second, and the Beekmans are still holding that anchor position.
Chippers are the first to leave. The destination is New York, NY at the Coney Island Boardwalk. Once there they have to locate the next clue which is hidden on a poster of Houdini. I don’t know the significance of that yet, if there is one. Got a little ahead of myself here. The clue telling them where to go was on a post card which is meant to tell them where to go and the view they should be looking at when they get there. All 3 teams are on the same flight. I was noted the the Beekmans and that other team are from New York. Apparently one of the Beekmans stays and works in NYC while the other tends the goat farm. The plane lands and the race is on to the amusement park. They all jump in Taxis and go to Coney Island. They all find the view on the post card. The poster of Houdini has 3 ‘clues’ on it but rather than the typical type, for anyone paying attention, these clues are telling them where to go next. After they cover most of the ground in the park Texas finally figures it out. As they are writing down the location of the Brooklyn Ship Yard, Beekmans notice them doing it. Texas isn’t happy that they’ve just given it away. Those two teams high tail it out of the park and back to their taxis (that, at Least Texas had waiting as do the Chippers). Meanwhile the Chippers are as clueless as can be as to what is right in front of them. Hell, I saw it when they first walked in the park (because Phil told me what to look for). Me thinks these guys should watch what way the Cameras are aiming. They must have shown us these things a million times. They finally do figure it out though. The other two placards on the sign tell them the intersection where their next clue is. Chippers left without writing anything down but all 3 teams find the clues at the intersection and it’s a roadblock.
This one is pretty interesting and it’s where the Houdini bit comes into play. One member of each team will be suspended 15 stories in the air from a crane, upside down, in a straight jacket. They are to escape the jacket at which point they will be Dropped, on a bungee cable. Once they come to a stop, they get their next clue. Trey, for Texas is the first to go. He’s scared shitless of heights. So am I and no way in hell would anybody ever get me in that position. Trey says he remembers seeing Houdini escape the straight jackets and the trick is to get your arms over your head. They you can untie yourself enough to escape the jacket. He does it, is dropped, which apparently, he did not expect. Next to do it is Brent followed by Jaymes. All three are now on their way to the Oldest Pizza Joint in NY. Lombardi’s to see a guy named John.
Texas gets there first. The task is to deliver 10 pizzas total, to 3 different locations in Little Italy. Each team basically is given a different set of orders. They have to however, do this all from memory, and deliver the right Pizzas to the correct addressees. After all, who wants an anchovies pizza if they didn’t order one? Lexi does uses her memorization skills and off they go. They’re holding first place pretty well at this point. Beekmans come in next and select their pizzas from the stacks of them. Those two teams are running all over Little Italy trying to get their pizzas delivered. Texas gets it done first and gets their next clue. Beekmans however screw up two of the deliveries by delivering the wrong pizzas. By the time they get back to Lombardi’s where John tells them they have to correct the mistakes, Chippers are there selecting their pizzas. Okay.. Both of these teams get it right the first time around and are also given their next clue.
That clue takes them to the United Nations building. Their task there is a road block so the other member of each team must do it. Trey did the Houdini thing so Lexi must do the UN task. The task is this. In each country they were in, they were both welcomed (hello) and told goodbye in the native language. There are flags representing each country and there they find the words on banners. They have to match the welcome and farewell from each country on it’s flag post AND get them in the correct order, Hello on top, goodbye on the bottom. 9 total countries. Once they do that, they can raise the UN flag which will lower their next clue. I’m guessing this is where the race is won or lost.
All 3 teams are there working at about the same time as this has been a pretty close leg of the race. All 3 teams pick off the easy ones first, Spain and France.. Josh is somewhat familiar with a couple of the languages so through process of elimination he’s able to get a couple of the other ones right. Chippers (James) are just flying by the seat of their pants. These teams can all see each other but cannot see what words the other teams are raising on each flag. Lexi, is getting over frustrated to the point that she fails to lock one of the sign carriers in place on the flag pole and gets cold conked when it comes back down. I think Lexi is done at this point. Josh pulls it off first followed by James. They both, minutes apart after about 3 hours or so, are able to raise their UN flags and get the final clue. They do so, Beekmans first, followed by Chippers, and are off to The Gothem Building (looks like the Chrysler building to me but maybe I don’t know my buildings). Beekmans get going first (after sort of bickering all through this final leg of the race. Remember I asked if these were the gay Bickersons? – No? Doesn’t matter, apparently they are known for their bickering.
Lexi is demoralized at this point. All along they have been the front runners in this part two episode and now they are in last place without a real hope in hell of winning. You see, all of the teams thought those greeters standing next to Phil were being polite. Even when Phil pointed out what it was they were saying. I didn’t think much of it either but I’m not running the race. Texas notes what fabulous notes they took all along. On everything Except, those greeters words. Actually that’s how they all ran the race but some had better memories than the others and were just a bit luckier with the draw.
It is a cab race to the Gothem center. They way it’s shown, there’s going to be a foot race too but… not so. Holy Shit, They did it. Beekmans WON! I’ve said for the last few weeks that these have got to be two of the luckiest sons of bitches walking the face of the earth or at least, participating in this race.
There you go race fans, Season 21 of the Amazing Race. Sorry about no pictures, I didn’t get started til late and even told NMD that I may not have this ready. If you didn’t see it and want to get some clue of what the hell I’m talking about, watch the show linked below.
The Beekmans wanted the money to pay off their mortgage on the goat farm so they could concentrate on it full time. I guess now they can. Chippers wanted the money to help ease their parent’s life. Jaymes for his dad’s (?) Cancer, and James so he could help take care of his mother. I guess the two of them have some nice shiny new cars to share and they’ve won a couple legs of the race so there’s some traveling in their future. Texas has enough trips banked up to run this race again, in luxury. The Fabulous Beekman Boys, as I’ve heard them referred to, never won a single leg. I’ve said all along and that’s the way they operated too, you don’t have to win any of them but the last one. Well done fellas. Enjoy that mortgage free farm. The best part of it for me was, You beat the Crows to the finish line not once, but Twice. The underdogs won, For A Change.
See you next season race fans.
Watch episodes here.
(Thank MTH – great season! Always good to see the underdogs take it. And thank you for staying up all night just so that we have something to read the next morning xxoo NMD)
