Tamra Barney Confirmed Adrienne Maloof Lied / Project Runway All-Stars

Tamra Barney Confirms Adrienne Lied and Other News by NoMoreDrama

Never one to stay out of a battle that has absolutely nothing to do with her, Tamra Barney has gotten herself in the magazines by confirming that she has “insider knowledge” that the secret Brandi Glanville told about Adrienne Maloof was indeed true.  She is, therefore, confirming that Adrienne lied when Adrienne said that Brandi was a liar.  She claims that Brandi spilled the secret because she has mild Tourettes.  My guess is that part isn’t true – and is just Tamra’s way of saying that Brandi says things without thinking.  Still no official word on the “secret”.

Bethenny’s Mother in Law says She’s Sad at what Jason is Going Through

Celebuzz has managed to get an interview with Carol Hoppy, mother of Jason Holly – “My son is a wonderful, wonderful person,” a saddened Carol Hoppy told Celebuzz.  “I’m sad at what he is having to go through just now because he is a great guy.”  she continued, presumably speaking about his separation with Bethenny Frankel.   Carol had been featured on Bethenny’s reality show and came across as level-headed and fairly traditional.  On the other end of the spectrum, Bethenny’s own mother had surprisingly little to say.  She’s normally pretty outspoken about her daughter, even though the two have been estranged for years.  “This is the first I have heard of it,” Bernadette Birk said. “I did not know nor never met Jason Hoppy, so I do not know if he was a good husband or not.”

Meanwhile, US Weekly Published a Photo of Jason Having Coffee in New York and Still (Gasp) Wearing his Wedding Ring

Almost a month after the we picked up that Jennifer Dalton was the new New Jersey Housewife, the magazines are finally reporting it.  Meanwhile Jennifer has gone almost silent on twitter.  To recap, Jennifer was on Pregnant with Heels Season 2.  Her episode featured Teresa Giudice.  Now Jennifer has been filming with the New Jersey Cast.  The “friends” this season are party planner Elvira (unpaid), Kim D (paid) with negotiations still going on with hairdresser Penny (who would like to be paid) and perhaps even Danielle Staub for guest appearance.

PRA Epi 9 1The five remaining designers meet Carolyn at Elie Tahari on Fifth Avenue.  Tonight the designers will be creating a ready to wear look; something that can be sold to the masses.  They meet designer Elie Tahari and are told to create a wow look for ready to wear at a low enough cost for their design to be sold between $500 and $700 and still make a profit.  The winning design will be sold at Elie Tahari stores, featured in their windows and on their website.  They will choose the fabrics from the Elie Tahari fabric floor.  This is a commerce and business challenge.

Anthony Ryan sees fabric he loves, but is afraid the print will make the model look larger, so he passes on it.  Uli is choosing white or off-white again.  Ivy is choosing a print fabric of blue and orange shades.  Emilio chooses a mustard colored silk fabric.  Josh chooses magenta.  It seems all the designers will be making a dress.

PRA Epi 9 Anthony RyanThe designers take their fabric to the cutting room for their pricing consultations with the Elie Tahari people.  Uli finds out she has to drop her vest to meet the price point.  The consultant likes the color Anthony Ryan chose and tells him it will sell well.  Ivy decides to modify her design after she sees the print of her fabric.  She is going to do a maxi-dress.  Anthony Ryan is also going with a print; it looks very similar to the print he passed on or he may have decided to use it after all.  Uli doesn’t know why she chose white again and decides it would probably have been smarter to use a color.  Emilio thinks the judges respond to color.

Back in the work room, Uli is trying to think of a design detail to make her white dress pop among all the color. She is having trouble.  Ivy likes the direction Josh is going but she knows he has a problem with editing.  Emilio is using color blocking of mustard, orange and burgundy.  Joanna comes in with Elie to see how the designers are doing.  Joanna calls Ivy’s feminine and modern.  Elie suggests making it short and a Summer piece.  I’m not sure Ivy is agreeing.

Elie tells Josh there is a lot going on with his dress, so Josh needs to listen to him and tone it down a little.  Joanna and Elie think Emilio’s color combination may be too complicated.  Elie thinks Uli’s fabric is too heavy and tells her not to let her fear of using white fabric make her do too much.  I think Elie and Joanna like Anthony Ryan’s design and he gives him an inspirational speech before he leaves.  The designers know that they need to take Elie’s advice because he will be one of the judges.  They have all heard from Elie that less is more.

All the designers get to video chat with someone and Ivy has a chat with Casanova.  He gives her a good pep talk and tells her she’s not a loser and she has to fight.  When the models come in for a fitting, I notice that all the dress designs are kind of similar except for Ivy’s, who chooses to keep hers long.  Uli will really have to take her dress in because it’s way too big on her model.

After the day is over, the designers all have drinks back at the hotel.  They talk about Elie Tahari and how he used to be homeless and worked as an electrician when he first came to the U.S. from Israel with $30 in his pocket.

On runway day, Uli is trying to take her dress in and Ivy has to finish the neck and armholes of her dress.  I love Anthony Ryan’s dress on his model even though he thinks prints are risky; you either hate them or you love them.  Ivy doesn’t like Emilio’s dated and period-like dress.  Emilio doesn’t think Ivy caught on to what Elie told her to do.  Anthony Ryan thinks Uli’s model is screaming for a ring on that finger.  Josh’s dress has a wonky zipper in the back and his model looks like she took a dump in her dress.  Emilio is afraid it might be Josh’s demise.

PRA Epi 9 2Time for the runway.  The profits from the winning design will go to the charity Save the Garment Center.  In addition to Elie Tahari, the other guest judge is model and actress Stacie Keebler.

I love Anthony Ryan’s print dress.  It fits the model like a glove and the flow and placement of the print is perfect.  Josh’s magenta dress doesn’t fit the model well.  The top of the front looks funky in the boob area and of course he has a problem with the puckered zipper up the back.  I like the color, though.  Emilio’s dress is well made, but it looks a little dull, it doesn’t have that wow factor to me.  I don’t like Ivy’s long silky dress.  The print just doesn’t do it for me.  And if she were going to make it a maxi, she should have made it longer in my opinion.  Uli’s dress isn’t bad.  It has a classic look and is timeless, like she said when she saw the model on the runway.  Let’s see if the judges agree with me.  I liked Anthony Ryan and Uli’s dresses the best.  Emilio’s was in the middle, and Josh and Ivy’s were the worst.

Uli is up first.  Georgina loves the detailing of the dress, but doesn’t like the length.  Isaac likes the length.  Carolyn tells her she could make a white dress every week.  Stacy thinks it’s very classy.  Elie tells her she made a real improvement from what he saw the day before.  Carolyn likes the color blocking of Ivy’s dress, but that’s all she likes about it.  Georgina thinks the length is a little frumpy.  Elie thinks Ivy’s model looks heavy and Stacie thinks the dress should be shorter.  Isaac likes Ivy’s dress when the model walks, but standing still she looks awkward.  For Emilio’s dress, Georgina thinks it looks simple and Stacie says it’s not a color she would be drawn towards.  Isaac expected more from Emilio than the dress he made.  Isaac thinks Anthony Ryan’s dress looks great but takes exception with the neckline.  Stacie loves Anthony Ryan’s dress.  Georgina thinks it looks young without being a junior dress.  Georgina likes Josh’s dress color and fabric but doesn’t like the chest.  Elie says the fabric is delicious, but doesn’t like the lace Josh put on the dress.  Carolyn thinks the zipper cheapens the dress a little bit.  The designers leave the runway.

PRA Epi 9 IvyThe judges think Uli’s dress could be worn at work and then be dressed up to go out at night.  They are impressed with Anthony Ryan’s dress.  So the winner will be between the two.  It will come down to which will retail better.  Isaac wants to nominate Emilio for immunity.  They think his dress is fine, but it’s not the winner or loser.  They think Ivy had a good idea, but her dress is just blah.  Stacie says she would never try Ivy’s dress on in a store and Isaac points out she’s been on the bottom a lot.  Georgina thinks Joshua should be shot with what he did with that great fabric he had to work with.  Elie thought Josh’s model was pregnant.  The judges are really torn about whom to send home this week; Ivy, who they keep telling to go out of her comfort zone, or Josh, who needs to tone it down a little.  A decision has been made.  Don’t tell anyone, but I hope Ivy goes this week.

The results:  Anthony Ryan wins once again.  This is his fourth win.  Uli is safe, and so is Emilio.  Ivy is out, which Joshua is safe.  I like how tonight turned out.  I wanted Anthony Ryan to win and Ivy to go and that’s just what happened.

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. It’s cold out. NMD I hope you had a blast skiing. Stay warm everyone and have a great day. Brrrrrrrr. 🙂

  2. Rebecca says:

    I’m always Team Anti-Adrienne, but seriously, who gives a flying duck what that idiot from OC says? What a piece of garbage!

    • Cartwheels says:

      I agree, Tamra as usual is inserting herself in something that does not pertain to her at all to stay relevant. Having Tamrat endorsement can’t be good for anybody.

    • Powell says:

      You said it Rebecca.

    • TexasTart says:

      Yes, you did say it Rebecca, with any luck Tamra will have to pay for messing with Charo. 😉

    • T-Rex says:

      Count me in on this, I am and always have been Anti-HoofMaloof couldn’t stand from day one and the dislike blossomed into extreme dislike, but who is TrailerTrashTrampySue to be all hatin on the HoofMaloof. Oh yeah, she is irrelvant and needs her skanky name in the press. Oh and she is all beggin for Bravo sponsored wedding ala Bethenny and Kim, whoops wait up there TrailerTrashTrampySue those made for TV weddings turn into some made for the tabloids divorces, oh yeah forgot TrailerTrashTrampySue is an expert on divorce, she has done it enough times. Wonder if her gay fiance is going to help with the decorations.

    • kit9 says:

      What, did sales of Tamra’s disgustingly offensive wine glasses slip? Needed a little PR ? I’m holding firm to refusing to watch the OC as long as that repulsive pos remains on the show.

      • T-Rex says:

        You and I both, I haven’t watched since the first time we were introduced to TrailerTrashTrampySue and that’s not going to stop, I mean seriously the whole marrying a gay man to get more publicity is just weird. Personally, I think the OC is tired and boring anyway, compared to BH they are just the low rent district of folks all living way beyond their means. JMO

        • Rebecca says:

          I will continue to avoid OC. This is my third season in protest. I may sound like a broken record but keeping her on the show is rewarding her destructive behavior. I hope the ratings are complete doo-doo this season.

          • Powell says:

            True Rebecca but I can stomach OC. NJ I can’t.

            • T-Rex says:

              Yep those are two franchises that I don’t think I will ever watch again, not watching Miami, can’t get into another franchise from the blogs and comments don’t care to either. I will watch NY and BH although if they keep ShannaTaylorNotFOrdLyingGrifterLypsMcgee I will have to boycott BH again

  3. Cartwheels says:

    Good morning, Contessa I read the article you posted, all I can say is WOW, that has some juicy information. Is there a part II of Miami reunion or this was it?
    I wonder why did Bravo edit out all the information pertaining Lea’s gala? might be the threat of a lawsuit?
    Thanks Contessa, that was an interesting and juicy info. It is obvious that Robert is fiercely protective of Anna.

    • LA_Debra says:

      oh there is a part 2

      • Cartwheels says:

        Uhmmm… I wonder if Bravo would show any of that file in Anna’s hands, she is after all a lawyer and if she brought documents I am sure she did a bit of research, it was not just hersay. This is fixing to get juicy.

  4. Rebecca says:

    For those of you just catching today’s blog,..

    Here’s a quote from the story linked by Contessa on the last page. It is really worth reading.

    http://allthingsrh.com/behind-the-ana-quincoces-lea-black-feud-robert-rodriguez-speaks-out-exclusive-details/

    “My sources tell me that Lea was attacking Ana’s family off-camera and told everyone, including the producers she was coming for Ana at the Reunion. So when Ana got wind of this, she came prepared to fire back at Lea with information about her gala . … My sources have told me, EXCLUSIVELY, that Ana took Lea down at the Reunion with questions regarding financial information about her gala, and she never recovered while continuing to tape, which is why Lea appeared emotional throughout the Reunion. My insider also reveals that all the other women were completely shocked by Ana’s information, but we don’t see that, because Bravo edited it out. I’m guessing due to threats of a lawsuit.”

    Go Ana! Suck it Lea.

    • Cartwheels says:

      This are the parts that I found more interesting

      “I only know two things about Lea: 1. that her last name is Black……or wait, is that her heart…..;and 2. that she went after my girls many times referring to them as potty mouths and inappropriate and that simply isn’t very cool.”
      “I’ve heard the comments and read the blogs. I also have seen the inexplicable reactions to when Ana uses the term “socially awkward” to defend our daughters and not to describe this woman’s son who she has never met. Shame on the viewers for assuming it’s the kid- perhaps it is they who see him that way. Ana was simply defending her daughters from the numerous times Lea called them inappropriate and questioned our family dynamic and dinner conversations-frankly it’s none of her business.”

      So now my question is, what is the deal with Lea’s son and why would she get upset or the viewers upset about this? Can somebody please shed some light to this? thanks

      • Contessa says:

        He’s a young boy/I believe about 11 or so, so he is a bit gawky. But I didn’t see anything wrong with him. My brother and other boys this age appeared the same way to me. Ana never called out Lea’s son – so that is BS on the part of publicity. She defended her daughters; Lea took some bad potshots at them after Ana walked out of scumbag Thomas’s crappy dinner party. Lea implied Ana had bad manners after drinking scumbag’s $1000 bottle wine – who writes crap like that. So what that tells me is it is okay to go to a sexual deviates house (all over the net), kiss his a$$ (is Roy his attorney?), take his donations for your gala(where does all the money go?), and allow him to insult women at the table and in general – that Lea finds acceptable?

    • Powell says:

      Thks for the link. I didn’t watch the reunion. I’m watching this weekend. Wow!! Ana had extplosive info huh? What Ana, Robert and their girls talk about as a family is none of Lea’s business so I don’t know why she had to go there in the 1st place. It makes no sense. I like how Robert takes up for Ana. I thought his jokes and wise cracks was his way of dealing w/the break up of their marriage. I’m glad he confirmed that. They still love each other. Maybe they’ll find their way back to one another. Hey if Liz and Dick could anyone can.

    • djprincessc says:

      Thanks Rebecca! I was confused, and now it all makes sense!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      This interview, did, indeed explain what the hell happened to make Ana come out swinging at the reunion. She and her ex are quite witty and well-spoken. He speaks so highly of Ana…I wonder why they’re not together if he truly believes his own words.

      Also, their girls are pretty amazing. But neither of them are minor children; I thought they were like older teens. As adults they (probably) agreed to appear on this show and are probably earning a paycheck. Like the Manzo’s right? My point is that they are not “off-limits” since they are adults. In real life, no one should talk crap about each other’s kids minor or not, if you want to stay friends with the parents. But my point is that their accomplished young women are not off-limits as I was thinking before. If they appear on a nationally run t.v. show and they choose to conduct themselves as they choose, they can and should take responsibility for it. He says it’s nobody’s business how they choose to talk to each other in their family. Normally, I would agree, except they all (consenting adults) chose to make their family banter public and they chose to make it everybody’s business. KInd of like the Manzo Kids (also fully grown men and women).

      This article does provide an explanation as to Ana’s motivation. I just didn’t understand what was motivating or provoking Ana. And now, I do understand. When someone criticizes your family or children (adult or minor) good manners and such are thrown out the window. I get it.

      I mentioned in another post that whole folder-gate thing reminded me of a scene this season where Lea is being interviewed about her gala (which I have up to now really admired her for) and when asked, how much money have you actually raised. She (according to the edit we saw) DID NOT ANSWER. I found that a bit disturbing but forgot about it until now.

      Let’s just say that now that I understand Ana, i don’t find her actions to be so irrational anymore. By the way, how old is Ana…her ex also referred to Ana as young and Lea as old. Maybe Ana is way younger than I thought cause I honestly thought there were only like 10 years between them. And maybe Lea is way older than I thought. I could see a woman in her 20s or early 30s referring to Lea as “old”. But that’s just my opinion, I guess.

      This whole THING should make for a juicy Season 3. I would love to see them all return and see how this whole thing is resolved next season. Will it/can it be resolved?

      • Toody says:

        Yea, the gala. Good point, LaineyLainey. Fundraisers (a person who controls the fundraising event) are allowed to keep up to a certain percentage of the take so….. anyway that perhaps is why Lea thinks she is a self-made woman? One would believe with her self-trumpeting personality she would gladly share what $ “she” raised for it. Oh, you’re right about file-toting Ana, then Lea would be outed that she is not only show casing herself but profiting as well. Well, we’re not having any of that!

        On another note her face lift and injections really look good. Also like her with the new smaller implants. She must have found a different stylist because she is not wearing the hooker get-ups much this season.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Thanks toody. Cute name. If she’s as old as everyone is saying, Lea has to have had work, because she has very few lines. She has a very vague line between her eyebrows but PPindy was saying she’s probably had Thermage. Never heard of it before last night, but it’s a skin tightening thing and it ‘aint cheap,

          She does look really good. And yes, she’s dressing better. Remember season one where she wouldn’t try stuff on? She would try stuff on over her clothes. nutty stuff.

        • chismosa says:

          Agreed Toody, about her face and her clothes. She saw how she looked S1 and got a new work and a new stylist. Pronto

  5. TexasTart says:

    RHOM – What in the world happened to Ana?! What climbed up her a$$ and died there?! I have been singing praises for Ana all season and she shows up for the reunion looking bad and acting bad. I think it’s understandable that any woman in this franchise could have some ill feelings towards something that Lea Black was “joking”about but this was below the portrait Ana had painted of herself this season. Now she had some of the more biting TH comments, but basically I found them to be true and not mean spirited. Last night was mean spirited. I want to know what pushed her to be this way? Anyone want to sleuth that one, be my guest! And I really want to know if anyone told her she looked great after she dyed her skin to dark, she had a gorgeous skin color before! Although I have not seen her standing in that dress, the color was good, but the neckline cut and jewelry choice just bombed in my opinion. Wow, here I am wanting to take down Ana without knowing the reason why…ugh. Oh and did anyone else notice she had a sluggish blink, like a drag on her eyelids? As if maybe a tranquilizer – and I’m not saying she does drugs, I’m just saying she didn’t seem at all the Ana that I loved for every episode this season. 😦

    • Rebecca says:

      Click the link to the story above. She was told Lea was coming for her and she prepared to defend herself.

      • Cartwheels says:

        It is obvious that the producers incited all this fight by warning Anna, but I have read Lea’s blogs and when it comes to Anna, they are not pretty, some of them are right down nasty but then Lea just says “Iam kidding” as if that fixes all the innuendo that she said before.

        • TexasTart says:

          Thanks Rebecca, I’ll look at that link, and thanks cartwheels, I started looking at Lea’s blog thinking a clue would be there but I quickly bored of that, before I got half way through them.

          • Cartwheels says:

            LOL, I only read the first two of this season and like you got tired, I have to say that Lea was having it out for Anna since the beginning, the digs about her marriage, her relationship with the ex-husband, the make believe boyfriend and the way Lea spoke about Ann’a daughters and the innapropriate sex talk with the father tells me that Lea was keeping a close eye on Anna, well now Anna came prepared to the reunion with facts about Lea’s gala, so I think it was fair game.

            • TexasTart says:

              Seems there has to be more to this, well maybe not, it IS housewives 😉 But what got Lea going after Ana in the first place?! What I’m aware of so far doesn’t seem hard hitting – as apparently she got back. I’m not convinced yet it is all fair game, but momma bears must protect their young, I just don’t get saying your kids have a potty mouth at that age means much of anything these days. So there just HAS to be more to this for Ana to plan an assault!

  6. Powell says:

    Oh gosh. Tamra or like many of you affectionately call her Trampra is getting in to other people’s kook-aid. She’s a bore and the meanest mean girl of all the HWs. She’d better shut her trap or Adrienne will have her lawyer send Trampra a C&D pronto, stat.

    Good for Brandi w/her clothing line. A very smart idea selling it on Amazon. Either she did the right thing & listened to experts on marketing or she had the idea but she made a wise choice. If a certain redhead had listened to experts we would’by have seen her product in Marshalls. The 2 dresses are simple & cute. She’ll probably sell out right away cause LeAnn will buy her fair share.

    • TexasTart says:

      Good morning, Powell. Agree, Agree and Agree! LOL at LR wil buy her fair share! 😛

      • T-Rex says:

        It will be such justice when Brandi’s 2 dresses outsell the entire line of Hoofs by Hoofmaloof, because I heard those things are another in the long line of HW fails and just taking up space in some lonly warehouse

  7. TexasTart says:

    RHOM again…. A lot of hard hitting and some equally hilarious one-liners last night, thanks to Ana and Adriana. I think Adriana is far more intelligent than she appears and I would venture she would blame on her Brazilian background for some of that over-the-top drama. (Didn’t Abi on Survivor use that excuse?!)

    Even though I’m not thrilled with Ana right now, I will still praise her for the bully comment. Stupid Ho-Ana gets inthat mode where she calls everyone a bully and going back and forth with Adrianna and she’s calling bully and here comes the voice of reason, Ana “stop misusing the word bully!” and something about it is serious and grown women in evening gowns are not being bullied, etc. TRUE! Thank you Ana, I thought “bully” between these ladies was terribly overused this season.

    HO-Ana, ha ha, saying that Romain would not cheat on her and Adriana comes back with “you think you’re the only pu**y in Miami?!” LMAO!

    Adriana to Joanna (as they talk like teenagers over one another) “STFU, you’re not Andy”. giggle.

    Adriana to Karent about brown nosing Joanna, if I recall she said “you lick Joanna’s a** like a little puppy”. Hey, these are not exact quotes, just as I remember and I could be a little off and I’m not going to venture into the slander of Lea, particularly her age, her son and how she got her success, WOW I just can’t believe Ana took it there, eventhough some was funny, it was all below the belt. I need to know why!!! 😀

    • Powell says:

      The on her back comment doesn’t make any sense.

      • ItzAngieDuh says:

        That comment doesn’t make sene to us-but Ana must know what she’s speaking about. She is an attorney & I don’t think she’d just spewing random comments. She said Lea got her start by selling cold cream out of the trunk of her Pinto. How much do we REALLY know about Lea before she married Roy? I knew that Ana was telling the truth cause Lea kept jumping up off the couch. Very lively reunion. HO-Anna is delusional. I hope Karent doesn’t come back-if there’s another season. How is her Joker smile her best defense mechanism? HO-Anna was even trying to turn on Lisa. Ana was having NONE of Lea’s BS! Can’t wait til next week!

        • TexasTart says:

          Agree with all that, Angie. And you know, there should be no shame in starting out selling cold cream out of the trunk of your Pinto – even in Waco Texas, ha. Ana would for sure have done her research or even she could have hired a PI to build her assault. Obviously the on the back comment is Ana trying to discredit the self-made, or independent remarks Lea has made on camera….most recently in Bimini with Lisa.

          • Called A Princess... says:

            I noticed the first season that Adrianna has major facial scarring on her cheeks. She was late a lot too gathering of the cast members and a comment was made by her or someone that her hair and makeup took forever. I think she is very very insecure about her face and has a huge chip on her shoulders about other women looking better then her. Last season she always appeared to be looking for a fight. I think that Lea also uses Adrianna as her attack dog because Adrianna is so easy to get wound up and Lea has helped out Adrianna a lot in the past, so Adrianna feels she owes Lea.To me, Adrianna behaves like a scarred women that preys on other women out of jealousy and I have found her to be emotional unstable. Perfect for Bravo and maybe the first character to murder someone during filming. JMHO.

            • Powell says:

              CAP I noticed the scars too. I think Adriana does always want to make sure she out dos the other ladies. I think she’s quick to strike back at other women because of what her ex did to her, being involved w/another woman at the same time they were married and the woman got pregnant and called Adriana and bragged about it. She wants to attack other women before she’s attacked.

              • chismosa says:

                Maybe because I’m S. American too i can ‘deal’ with Adriana’s brashness more- not that i grew up around any craziness like Adrianna.
                I don’t see such huge ‘scars’ as everyone sees- i mean, no one has perfect skin on here- Ana always seemed to me to have some acne along her chin (where it is the hormonal/period place that breakouts occur), and someone pointed out Ana’s having a lot of beauty marks last night— i mean- i personally find these women the most attractive of all the HWs and i also think Lisa Hochstein was more attractive before her face got so worked on. So what she had a rounder nose before- why everyone got to change their noses?! lol
                Lisa and Lea are ALL WORK on their face, so why am i going to say that someone who stays ‘natural’ has issues? And i analyze women’s skin on tv like cra-crazy! plus i’m on an HD like 72 inch tv.

                I have said from the beginning that i find Adrianna very intelligent. It gets lost in her her very thick accent and gregarious nature and explosive way of talking sometimes. But overall, i like her. Her arguments, IMO, always are measured and make sense to me. People just hop on the ‘fiery Brazilian’ persona and i don’t think it fits. JMHO.
                I hope she and Ana become better friends. I hope Ana drops Lea- their bff kids will head off to college one day anyway……

                I think Adrianna attacks Joanna for many reasons we did not see on edited tv, that’s JMHO.
                Plus i know physical violence is awful but Joanna WOULD NOT LEAVE HER ALONE at that house party. I would have snapped.

  8. LA_Debra says:

    wow, that article answered a lot of my questions. I saw the file folder in Ana’s hand and wondered “what didn’t we see?”. Interesting. And Lea was definitely clutching her pearls after the confrontation. … I still think Adrianna and Joanna (while not liking eachother) are overacting for the camera.

    • TexasTart says:

      I always thought Joanna was the most immature of any housewive and if Adriana goes after her, especially when Ho-Anna is drunk, I say all the power to her – but what is really messed up about Adriana is her lowering herself to acting like a teenager, like when those two talk over one another and really, they act as if they’re 14. Shame on Adriana for lowering herself to that level, she can take on Joanna w/o acting like her!!!

      • Powell says:

        TexasTart you are right about Adriana. Like you said she’s very intelligent so she just needs to use that w/Joanna or anyone else. No need for the high school mentality that Joanna uses. I know Joanna has been successful as a model but I don’t kno what else she’s done like so many other models that get into designing, makeup, and other businesses. Maybe Joanna is the stereotype of a model w/no brains. I don’t know what her education is either. Many models and former are college grads.

  9. Contessa says:

    I would defend my children against anyone (as Ana did), as all of you here would as well. I think Lea had it coming. She has been excused as making her nasty-a$$ comments as it was “funny” and “off the top of my head”…not acceptable to me whatsoever. The green card issue around Marysol’s marriage was totally disgusting. Plus a lot of the other comments over the last two years. You can also see that Adriana is getting tired of her (she helped Adriana get back on her feet). This gala thing has always bugged me no end, as I always wondered about all that over the top money. Also her attack on Marysol’s business was horrible, I have no doubt Marysol’s people did not get the VIP lists beforehand. Lea went out of her way to destroy Marysols credibility all season. Even after she saw that Marysol did apologize to that idiot James or whatever name he is today on TV. I say good for Ana, she came armed and ready and was not going to lay down for the pretend Mayor of Miami who counts that scumbag Thomas as one of her dear friends. Remember this, Lea was outraged that Ana insulted Thomas by leaving his table after he gave his guest $1000 bottle wine and his crappy homemade food – Lea wrote about it in her weekly blog and basically said that Ana had bad manners – WTF? The age comment by Ana was not pretty (I’m 63), but heck if Lea can shovel it out, she should be able to take it as well. I have no doubt after reading Ana’s ex’s comments we were not shown a lot of what went down last night, because of Roy Black being an attorney and threatening Bravo. However I also think there will be some stories coming out about gala money sometime soon.

    • Rebecca says:

      Never, ever poke a mama bear. All bets are off at that point. Lea has had that ass-chewing coming for a long time.

  10. Contessa says:

    One other thing, Lea made fun of Ana’s working for a bank as an attorney in real estate. Is her head so far up her H’s A$$, because he is a trial attorney that represents rapists (Kennedy case) and murderers (that millionaire guy who killed the college kid while drunk driving) that she looks down at all other kinds of law? Roy’s time in the sun is fleeting, it only comes about with big cases (which are few and far between), so she better save some of those diamonds for the rough times, while Ana is merrily working away at the bank and writing her cook books.

    • TexasTart says:

      Yeah, that was totally grasping at straws on Lea’s behalf to call Ana out on having the bank/real estate attorney job….as if that was a job to be ashamed of?!

      • Called A Princess... says:

        Being a in house attorney is a lot different then being a firm attorney. One of the big differences is the way one gets paid. Firm billing, for the most part is generated by billable hours to different cases and an end of year bonus structure and partnership. An in house attorney does not have to deal with the hassles of billing, partnership or bonuses based on hour/cases worked, generally, and firm attorney’s tend to resent the in house payment structure. In house attorney’s have more of a personal life, in general. JMHO.

  11. PJ says:

    I didn’t really need Tamra to confirm anything, I always believed that Brandi told the truth about whatever this big secret is. People just don’t react the way P & A did over lies.

    I hope Brandi makes some big bucks on her clothing and book. Brandi certainly looks great in her line of clothing, she has an amazing figure no wonder some women are jealous of her not to name anyone in particular.

    • T-Rex says:

      PJ totally agreed, and I am unsure as to what the HoofMaloof could possibly be suing Brandi for, if she told the truth, whether it was inappropriate or not, Brandi hadn’t signed any agreements with the HoofMaloofs not to “disclose” the secret. I highly doubt any lawsuit over this ever gets to court. HoofMaloof, VileKyleMeanGirl and ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterLypsMcgee have all been jealous of Brandi since day one that is completely clear.

      • Called A Princess... says:

        I do not think that Addy is jealous of Brandi as much as she would like Brandi to mine her own business and STFU! Simple enough. Brandi needs to keep her nose and mouth out of other cast members personal business. She may not have lied, but she has no right to pop off and say what ever she wants to say with out consequences. It is hard to comment without knowing exactly what she said. We may never get the truth out of this group. JMHO.

        • kit9 says:

          Brandi is like Tamra that way..this insane need to out other people’s secrets that have nothing to do with them. And, I have doubts about Brandi’s gossip being true. I mean, how the ef would Brandi know? Does she have access to Adrienne’s medical records? How would she know for sure if something so personal involving Adrienne’s family was true or not? Come on.

          • T-Rex says:

            I believe that the HoofMaloof told Brandi her secret, years ago. They have known each other for some time, they didn’t meet on the show, HoofMaloof brought Brandi to the show. From some things I have recently read the HoofMaloofs liked hanging out with celebrities, meaning they probably all knew each other when Brandi was married to Eddie. The secret is true, it shouldn’t have been aired in public, but it’s not false.

        • PJ says:

          I wouldn’t compare Brandi and Tamara.

  12. melthehound says:

    If a liar confirms that a liar has lied, who is telling the truth, if anyone?

    Go Brandi! 😀

    Good morning everyone.

    • TexasTart says:

      Good point, MTH and good morning to you. Hey, I got to enjoy your video last week before everything went crazy…I mean with Christmas gatherings…and don’t think I replied and if not, I hope you had a good one! 🙂

      • melthehound says:

        It was decent, TexasT. Thank you. I hope while everything was going crazy, you managed to enjoy yourself as well. The video has had 97 plays according to YT stats. Many don’t reply or post in the comments, I’m just glad people tend to enjoy them.

    • Rebecca says:

      In the immortal words of Gregory House, ” everybody lies.”

    • VV says:

      We all know Brandi didn’t lie because the other ladies kept saying that the “secret” was a private matter. I think Kim was the only one that questioned it was true. If Adrienne’s secret is known all he way to OC, it was never a secret.

      If the Hoof fits, Charo must acquit!

  13. AZGirl says:

    Good Morning Everyone. Sick again for the last 2 days. Just can’t seem to get rid of this cold. 4 colds in 3 months. Wearing me down.
    Lea is a fool. She shows up at the reunion with diamonds dripping off of her but we all know that they are “blood diamonds”. Diamonds paid by clients of her husband and are criminals and murderers. Especially that guy that was involved in that hit and run. Despicable. Lea expects us to respect her? Ana is a smart attorney. Ana knows that Lea is incapable of defending anything that is in her file because of her law background. Never show up at a “gunfight” unprepared. I actually enjoyed watching Lea squirm. Can’t wait to find out where all the “benefit” money went.

    • TexasTart says:

      AZgirl, sorry you’re under the weather again. 😦 Hope that clears up soon – permamently! I hear you on the blood diamonds and if the exessiveness of the diamonds were not apparent enough Miss Andy has to ask their value AND she answers back?! What was that …a conservative 25 million? Oh yeah, Leah that’s a good way for people to get behind you, right. (Sarcasm)

      • stellastars21 says:

        TexasTart — I think I saw on this blog a few days ago how Lea tweeted or said or facebooked or whatever that she borrowed those diamonds from a jeweler friend. I thought to myself that she was trying to upstage Miss $25,000 sunglasses. I wouldn’t want that much diamonds no matter who paid for them or where they came from. But I’m not into jewelry anyway. My boyfriend told me he wants to propose and I could pick out the ring so I’d know I’d like it and I told him I didn’t want an engagement ring. The wedding band will suffice.

        • Powell says:

          Stella you better talk to boston and get you an engagement ring girl.

          • Powell says:

            Oops. And congratulations!! 🙂

          • stellastars21 says:

            LOL, I’m just weird that way. And thanks. It will be a little time before he proposes because he just started his own business a bit ago and wants to make sure he is more set financially or if he’ll need to get a regular job working for someone else again haha. That makes sense to me. He wanted me to know that is his plan and he wanted to make sure I’d like what he bought.

        • TexasTart says:

          Stella – well that would make sense they were borrowed, but with Lea stating their value it really left open the idea she owned them…she didn’t take the opportunity to plug a jeweler!

          I think your bf is a wise man, despite the fact a proposal may not be a surprise…he is wise to start out with something he knows you will like!

          My man and I just decided to get married, so there was no actual proposal, nor a reason we had to marry. He took me to the jeweler so I could chose and I skipped the engagement band, but he was steadily encouraging something flashy….long story short I fell into the encouragement and my ring is just too flashy for this Texas Tart so I haven’t wore it in ages! I should get it remade into a band that’s more realistic for my lifestyle.

        • Rebecca says:

          If you just want the band, why don’t you get one in gold and one in platinum? It would be very Audrey Hepburn-like. Her engagement ring was an eternity band, so she could mix and match according to her outfit.

    • T-Rex says:

      Az sorry to here you are sick again. Whatever this bug is has hit a lot of folks pretty hard, I didn’t flu shot this year so I got it but just the once, the few people in my office that had the flu shot have not seemed to completely get over this flu. Hope you feel better soon!

    • stellastars21 says:

      I hope you feel better soon AZgirl.

    • Powell says:

      AZGirl I’m sorry that cold won’t let you go. Are you sure it’s just a cold? I was watching GMA this morning and Dr Jennifer Ashton said the flu is in full force now. Did you get a flu shot?

      I like Lea but obviously we don’t know what’s going on. And yeah Roy reps some despicable people but it’s an honest living so he’s earned every penny of that money. If he was my husband I’d wear diamonds too. What’s Lea supposed to do? Not spend the money? As for Ana’s research I would hope the Black’s aren’t doing funny things w/the money people have been donating all these years. It will only hurt the people they claim to be helping & the Black’s rep. It seems that Ana is not only sticking up for her girls but she’s also sick of hearing Lea say negative things about Marysol’s PR handling of the events & also Elaine’s comments. Well all I can say is people who want to take on other people need to make sure their house is in order before they start. Lea may have learned her lesson.

      • AZGirl says:

        Its a cold. I got my flu shot months ago. I changed out my toothbrush and disinfected my water bottle. I think it is the gym. I not going for a few days and it is going to kill me. But then again it may kill me if I do go :). Mr. AZGirl told me to stay home and rest which I have been doing.
        OT: Today is First Born’s 25th Birthday!

        There is something “off” about Lea. I do think that Ana does resent that she worked hard and has been successful whereas Lea kinda slept her way up the social latter. But KIDS are off the table as far as I am concerned. I would love to be a fly on the wall when Momma Elsa voices in on all this.

        • Powell says:

          Ok. Well yeah stay away from that gym for a bit. That was a good idea changing your toothbrush and disinfecting your water bottle.

          Happy happy birthday 1st born AZ!! Party responsibly. 🙂

          Oh Momma Elsa is going to tell them all it’s BS and they should be ashamed of themselves.

      • AZGirl says:

        As for the “honest living” living that Mr. Black does hmmmm. Trust me I know many attorneys who do defense work. Kids who get Dui’s etc. and they don’t make a lot of money but do help those who make the wrong “choice”
        Guys like Black make my skin crawl. Seriously.

        • Powell says:

          Hey. I didn’t say I liked him as a defense attorney, nor his clients but they ask for the best that money can buy and they think he’s the best so they’ve got to pay the high fees he charges.

  14. I saw some people asking about LES MISERABLES last night. I saw it opening day. Before I give my opinion on it I should give some background info so you know how to take my review lol. I never saw the play except for one time in high school 13 years ago during class so it wasn’t a big production and I don’t remember how it went. I do not like musicals but I’m willing to give them a chance. I prefer a musical where it is almost 100% singing instead of musicals that have more talking and then suddenly they break out into song. I guess I feel like the more singing the more normal it seems in a weird way. I did like Phantom with Gerard Butler but that may be because he was working that mask and he would not have had to ask me twice to make the music of the night… but anyway. I also never cry at movies. Makes me wonder if something is wrong with me hahaha. So back to Les Mis. I thought the story was interesting but it was the movie that WOULD.NOT.END. OMG it was 2 hrs and 38 mins and felt like an eternity. I am tall so having no leg room in those seats didn’t help never mind how uncomfortable the seats were. And personally I don’t know why anyone would pay Russell Crow to sing but if you don’t mind that then you won’t mind every time he sings. About half hour before it ended I went to the bathroom and I decided to stand when I came back so I didn’t disturb the people in my row again. Well looking around I saw that lots of people were crying including my friends and so I’m figuring there must be something I’m missing. FWIW my friends who are more into these types of things loved it. So that last sentence is probably more helpful to you than anything I wrote before it. Lol

    • T-Rex says:

      Thanks for the review, I have seen Les Miserable on Broadway and also saw a version that was excellent at the Performing Arts center down here, we get a lot of good road shows here, I have cried at both shows. The show is long, and it’s why Musicals have an intermission, it’s not to just change set but give folks a chance for a potty break and stretch your legs. I was happy to read that the actors actuall “sang” while filming, they didn’t sing ahead of time and then mouth the words on screen. I love Hugh Jackman and that’s cause enough alone to see the movie.

    • Powell says:

      Over 2 hrs huh Stella? BB put a link on here a couple of weeks ago and it looked really good. I’ve seen the 2 movies done in the 40s & 50s and loved thrm both & cried. As a matter of fact TCM had the one on w/Fredrick March & I have it on my dvr to watch. A couple of weeks ago PBS had the musical on & I watched that. I’m looking forward to seeing this movie but it will be when it comes on Directv which will be w/in 4 to 6 mths.

    • chismosa says:

      Stella thanks for your review. I hate musicals and saw Les Mis years ago on Broadway while i saw Phantom on Broadway about 10x (i liked that one more!). I also really liked Miss Saigon.

      The joke in my house is that if my father needs a good nap, we’ll go to see this movie Les Mis.
      ha!

  15. stellastars21 says:

    You’re welcome. And yeah, this movie should have come with an intermission 🙂

    I liked that they sang while filming too and I was thinking of that during the movie. I also kept thinking of George Castanza when the Master of the House song was played and how he got that song stuck in Elaine’s father’s head. Lol. I love Seinfeld. Since we cut our cable off I have been watching the DVDs from the beginning through Netflix. Good times.

    • chismosa says:

      Stella that episode was LITERALLY just on right now, here in NY at 11:30pm Friday. how funny! When Jerry ruins his new suede jacket

  16. stellastars21 says:

    I bought the first season of RHBH since all this talk about them made me miss (some of) them since I don’t have cable anymore. I started watching it last night and I saw Dana/Pam as the party planner for Kennedy’s 4th birthday. You know the one that cost $60,000. There was a pop up that said she charges $12,000 per event. That can only be a scam.

    Also I noticed that when Taylor went to buy the little barbie jewelry for Kennedy, when she walked in she thanked the owners for coming to the poker game and she heard he won a lot of money. Now that could have been anything but I remember the charity poker game that she had for domestic violence which aired after this episode.

    • Powell says:

      Hey Stella. Happy holidays. All the 5 figure BD parties for Kennedy could have been used to pay Taylor’s creditors, better yet it could have been money she and Russell had in the bank and there would not have been a need for Russell to do shady biz and maybe he’d still be alive.

      I remember the purchase of the Barbie jewelry but not the convo so you caught Bravo’s editing since Taylor asks about the poker game winnings but then the poker game is shown later. I need to pay closer attention to the editing.

      • stellastars21 says:

        Hey Powell, thanks, hope your having a great day. You’re right the money could have been used for that for sure.
        I’m learning from watching Beverly Hills that I should have come up with a business plan that involves something that rich people pay for just for the sake of being extravagant and upstage their friends. That way I could get rich off of what they pay me. Some stuff rich people pay for blows my mind. I’m not saying they can’t spend their money how they want cause they absolutely can but some things I just can’t imagine paying so much money on when you can get the same thing or similar much cheaper.
        I rarely notice the editing stuff since I’m normally watching for the drama (yes I admit it lol, is there a 12 step program for this) but that stood out to me.

        • ItzAngieDuh says:

          ITA Stella-I’m always shocked by howuch rich people pay for things-it’s like they have so much money-they just waste it. I saw the preview of Taylor 👄👄(I luv her nickname but can only remember Lips McGee ha) shaking & crying because some creditor wants her wedding ring as payment. The guy on the phone was not impressed with her tears & told her they expected a call with her decision!!

        • Powell says:

          I know Stella. My mom and I were watching the news and the reporter was at the mall talking to people doing after Xmas shopping. This one man said he spent $8k on Xmas last yr. My mom said even if she was rich she wouldn’t spend $8k on Xmas. Me neither. Some people just don’t understand the concept of money. I don’t understand Taylor or Kyle spending the money they do for 3 & 4 yr olds BD parties. What will they do when they reach the milestone BDs 16, 18 & 21?

  17. IceNFire says:

    @Cartwheels – Thanks for confirming J/B timeline 🙂

  18. Pghemtchick says:

    Consider the source, but Radar Online is reporting Ayden is getting a lil brother or sister.

    @radar_online: Atlanta Housewife Phaedra Parks Expecting Baby #2! http://t.co/fcnHdlzC #PhaedraParks

    As for Tamra, IMO she should have left it alone, but congrats on sticking up for her friend.

  19. djprincessc says:

    When RHOM started the, the first couple episodes I thought Ana was boring and didn’t get why she was there. But when the Thomas Kramer thing happened I completely changed my view of her and liked her. Now after this reunion, I LOVE HER. The way she handled Lea and put her in her place was AMAZING! Since the first season I could NOT stand Lea, the way she talks to people and gives all the backhanded compliments and the “just kidding” is not my cup of tea! I am a very outspoken person and not sensitive by any means but its all about delivery and she just doesn’t deliver well. Its very refreshing to see a woman like Ana NOT BACK DOWN and be intimidated by Lea, the way she speaks and backs up what she says with proof is how it should always be handled!! Teresa, Alexis and Brandi should take notes from her. Anyone that thinks Ana is not coming back next season is crazy, I think this cast is actually perfect and they should keep it this way (even though I don’t like Lea) the only thing I would love to see gone is no more James. I can’t wait for part 2 next week! 🙂

  20. AZGirl says:

    Watching reruns of OC. Vomit. I just don’t understand why Bravo keeps bring back Tamara and Gretchen boring made up storylines

  21. LaineyLainey says:

    Oh crud, I didn’t get an email notification of the new blog. I brought this over if anyone is interested.

    Good news, Errbody!! Detox is alive and well! I heard from her today!! She has been very busy with some writing assignments – her parents left for awhile and took their computers/tablets with them so she was unable to get online when at home. When she was at the library she need to get her work done.

    Here’s part of what she said:

    “Please pass my X’s and O’s on to the LynnFam and give them a BRIEF description of why I’ve been M.I.A. You know “Miss Wordy Birdy” (yours truly) has a hard time with “brief.””

    She said she will try to check in today or tomorrow.

  22. LaineyLainey says:

    Also this: When Andy said something to Lisa H about how viewers say she is a “fembot”…she replied with something like “I never said I was a feminist” I like her, but that was funny.

  23. Powell says:

    Essence nag is reporting via Twitter that Phaedra is pregnant.

  24. Powell says:

    Has anyone seen Extreme Cougar Wives on Discovery Fit & Health? It’s about women that are over 60 w/BFs in their 30s. It’s crazy. I know it’s a double standard when older men date/marry women half their age like deceased actor Tony Randall who was in his 70s when he married his wife in her 30s and they had 2 kids. Actress Joan Collins is in her 70s and her husband is in his late 40s early 50s. I still find it odd for an older woman to be w/a much younger man.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I’ve never seen the show. Do you like it?

      • IceNFire says:

        I think it’s a one time thing, not a series but it does repeat. Kinda weird and creepy – imo

      • Powell says:

        It’s to weird for me and I can usually watch weird & crazy. I don’t think I’ll watch again. It freaked me out when a 70yr old lady wearing long earrings like NeNe wears out on a date w/a 30 something yr old guy and when the waiter asked them if they wanted desert the guy said his date was the desert. I’m serious y’all. That freaked the heck out of me.

      • TexasTart says:

        Right Powell, it is odd the other way around…remember Elizabeth Taylor and whatshisname…Larry?! I don’t remember exactly, but that was maybe 30 year spread. Anyway, yes I saw this Extreme Cougar Wives and it creeped me out. I would not watch again, but maybe as IceNFire said it was a one time deal. Very smart programming move if you ask me! 😉

  25. california35 says:

    stella

    Thanks for the review in Les Miserables. te story is too sad, so i h r ever read the book or seen the plays or the old movies for it. this time around, i have thought to see it becuasr mu celebrity crush is in it (dont jusge me :-P) Russel Crow. at the same time, i dont know if i want to see him singing and as a bad guy (insnt he a bad guy?) i know he has a band and can sing, but i have never heard him. I joked with a girlfriend, that i would see it because the movie has two hot guys ( again dont judge me :-P) and no hot girls (or not hot looking in the movie). i still dont know if i wil go seenit at the movies, but i appreciate your review showing what i suspected. singing and SAD.

    happy holidays everyone.

    • sparklemuffy says:

      Yes–thanks NMD and BB and stella.. I HATE musicals. I keep it a secret as I’m a musician. really, who doesn’t like Mary Poppins? But it”s like the story is trucking right along then… they burst into song…ZZzzzzzz. I have been to many btw. after the first hour I’m thinking “you know you don’t like musicals. what are you doing here?” Then I turn and look at my friends ( who talked me into being there in the first place) faces enraptured with pure unadulterated glee. Really? Wicked bored me to tears—-tears—So stella, so glad to meet a fellow musical hater– even though I love the symphony, ballet and the opera. ( no, no crying @ movies either)

      • TexasTart says:

        Sparkle- so funny about you being a musician who secretly hates musicals! lol I don’t like musicals either, but I could join you and Stella at the movies to create a cry-free zone.

        • sparklemuffy says:

          hahaha! come on!

          • Nancy says:

            sparklemuffy,
            Where have you been all of my life? What kind of a musician are you?
            We go to the Opera a lot. I loved Les Mis. Saw it three times. I’m not
            sure if I’m going to see the movie though. Have you listened to any of
            the music from Les Mis? I bet I could get you to love it. 🙂

            • sparklemuffy says:

              piano and sing. We watched The Wizard of Oz this morning– it is the camp-i-est thing… laughed my head off. “What would you do with a brain if you had one?” I recently was able to see the opera ” The Difficulty with Crossing A Field” ( Gone with the Wind meets The Twilight Zone) The music was repetitive but interesting and I’m glad I saw it– I thought of you ( 4 piece ensemble). I will listen to some Les Mis. and see if I like it 🙂

  26. EKB says:

    I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. I have been catching up on RHO Miami and have a comment about Lea’s son. I know there has been a lot of discussion about the minor children on these shows being off-limits, but there was one scene earlier in the season that just bothered me. It was the scene when Roy returned home from the trial and the Black family sat down to discuss the outcome. RJ proceeded to share his opinion that the police officers and the judge lied during the trial. All I could think during this scene was that Lea and Roy prompted RJ to say this in front of the cameras in order to share their opinions in a safe way. I wonder if they figured that no one would criticize a child for saying what he said.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      That could be EKB; I thought perhaps he was just repeating what he heard his parents saying when the cameras weren’t rolling. I thought perhaps RJ had pulled an “ooops” by revealing what is discussed at home behind closed doors.

    • TexasTart says:

      Hi EKB, I clearly remember that and my thinking was their son was projecting his parents opinion….whether or not instructed to say that. Could have happened either way, I imagine.

      Oh, I think it’s off limits to criticize a child, but this is just an observation of how to get info out in an unintentional manner.

  27. So I read thru all the links posted in the last blog about Ana and her feud with Lea. Looked at twitter, and other stuff. Ana has good reason to be fed up with Lea. Lea’s bravo blogs provide a little background, going back to her 1st blog this season. On page 3 or so (have to admit, reading Lea’s blog is vomitrocious to the max, she tries to be “witty” but comes off as catty with the claws out) of that 1st blog, she mentions Columbian women, their ways with men, and insinuates a threesome – Karent, Rudolpho, and Ana??? It’s hard to tell, she’s being so insinuating but it’s a veiled attempt. It’s not nice, the way she weaves her rumors and insinuations. Is she, or isn’t she, saying something about Ana and a threesome? The whole blog is sort of like that, mixed up innuendos.

    Lea criticized Ana’s daughter’s a lot too. I read Ana’s blogs, and her twitter from Thursday night. Ana was NOT alluding to Lea’s son at all. She was saying that her daughters are not socially awkward, as in what they were talking about at the dinner table – and elsewhere (we don’t know all the fights Ana & Lea had off camera). Lea was going after Ana’s girls, so Lea defended them. Nothing to do with Lea’s son, who from what little I saw of him, looks adorable and very smart.

    Ana is fed up with Lea’s backhanded insults and her sarcastic comments, with a “just kidding” and a cackle on top. When she said to Lisa “you’re not as dumb as you look” that’s an example of Lea’s nasty insults. So you go Ana, stand up to that horrid woman that supports her husband’s dirtbag clients! I’ve had it with Lea too. And Roy Black, he’s a total turd. Yes he’s worth $65 million but it is all dirty money from his nefarious clients.

    What Ana did was fill a thick file full of facts about Lea’s charity. It was reported that Lea was upset, after Ana laid into about her charity at the reunion. None of that footage will make it on the show – wonder why. So both Ana & Lea were still hyped up from that fight, when we saw them later. Wonder what facts Ana dug up?? Maybe things like how much money is actually spent on charitable projects, and how much goes for the party. You know her big party costs hundreds of thousands of dollars. What a waste.

    Those diamonds Lea was wearing supposedly were worth $50 million. The fact that she felt compelled to wear jewelry like that to a rhw’s reunion is disgusting to me. Lea is the type of person who thinks what she wears & who she is seen with allows her to make sarcastic comments to anyone. What.a.jerk.

    • djprincessc says:

      Clapping for this! Basically said what I said up above. Lea finally met her match. Team Ana 100%

    • Formerly Addicted to Bravo says:

      Not that I am a fan of Lea’s and not that she isn’t annoying….but Ana would have done better to take the high road. Her talking about Lea getting to where she is on her back is really beneath someone with class (to coin from another RHO franchise.) Ana likes to portray herself as the classy, educated one, but she has brought herself down way more than Lea with her approach. I understand being a mama bear and wanting to defend your kids, but she really went into the mud and frankly I don’t like her any more.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Hi Bluey! I think this is the first time I’m at odds opinion-wise with so many of my LynnFam friends. It’s not a fun feeling. But well, to quote one of my least favorite housewives, “it is what it is.”

      Lea’s comments in response to her blog on bravo are mostly positive. But with the bravo blog one has to wonder if all of the comments are being posted. It seems that the negative comments toward Kyle and Faye Resnick WERE posted. But who knows.

      Lea IS sarcastic and abrasive and even caustic…I agree. Those are definitely flaws and not qualities. But she does possess some qualities, too. However, I find it interesting that her wealth is often mentioned as a criticism. Her age, too. I don’t see how either of those things factor in when one is weighing the reasons why she deserved having Ana come after her on the reunion. But that’s just me. People’s bank accounts and/or age just don’t factor in with me. It has been revealed by Ana’s husband that Lea’s comments are what set Ana off. NOW THAT, I can understand. The money and age thing as a character flaw…that’s the part I don’t understand.

      “Folder-gate” should have been shown. It does raise red flags, but I can only speculate. It reminded me of that interview this season where the reporter asked her how much money the gala raised. Lea couldn’t/wouldn’t answer!!! THAT raised a red flag. I’m not going to say that no money is being raised; but why wasn’t the amount at the tip of her tongue, is she not proud of the amount of money the gala raises? Not her wealth, not her age…but her refusal to answer that question about the gala is what made me wonder about her. Other than that, I find her rude, yes.

      It got on my nerves that she kept standing up at the reunion. That’s random, I know – but I found that odd and yes, socially awkward.

      I know it sounds like I go back and forth (Like MJ – haha!!) but I can and do see both sides. Neither of them are completely horrible, neither of them are complete saints either (not hardly).

    • Rebecca says:

      Can I start using the word “vomitrocious” in my posts too? It’s a brilliant word to describe almost all the Real Hypocrites blogs.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        I vote “yes” to vomitrocious!! It’s so expressive!!!

        • Nancy says:

          We use that in figure skating. The area you have to stand in right before
          you step onto the ice is called the “Vomitoriam”.

          • djprincessc says:

            What is it with everyone and this take the high road stuff?!?!? Why??? Then if she didn’t defend herself and stand up to Lea people would be criticizing her as well. The way Marysol is being told to get a voice or grow a pair. Lets see any of us be attacked and take the high road, esp if it involves anyones kids or business. HA!!!

            • LaineyLainey says:

              I agree with you to a point. Yes, defend yourself. But how are the geritol comments or the “I don’t want you to break a hip” comment a defensive move? It seems more like an attack or an offensive move.

              Her hubby said, in the article provided by Contessa, said that Ana heard that Lea was going to come after her. I wonder where she heard that? Yes, Bravo,….I’m looking at you!!

              Why didn’t Ana directly confront Lea about the comments Lea made about Ana’s family. That would have been more in the vein of defending yourself, than the way she chose to come out attacking the woman in what seemed to the average viewer (like myself) like an unprovoked attack.

              And yes, I now understand Ana’s position a little better,… but I still think she was in attack mode and not in defense mode. Which made me sympathize at that moment, more with Lea than with Ana because Ana never explained it onair.

              • Nancy says:

                Exactly. She just across as angry and rude.
                As an attorney you would think she knows better.

              • djprincessc says:

                Well if Lea can say to Lisa you are smart or something to that effect and saying Marysols husband married her for the green card I don’t think the comments from Ana were horrible. If Lea can dish it with her sarcasm so can others. I thought they were funny but then again I don’t like Lea. lol. And I think there still might be hard feelings from the TK dinner where Lea defended the way he spoke to Ana. JMO though, could be wrong.

                • Nancy says:

                  Hi dj,
                  I hear you. Ana’s behavior came out of left field because that’s not how she
                  acted during the season. There is a difference between defending yourself
                  and hitting below the belt. She is getting slammed over at the Bravo site.
                  Her words seemed so mean spirited.

                  • djprincessc says:

                    Hiiiiiiiii Nancy!! I guess we just see different things. Bc to me it was justified and even more so when I read the link above that Ana’s husband wrote. I haven’t been on Bravos site in years after knowing how they manipulate comments. I’ve liked the Miami page on FB and the comments I would say are pretty even, half for Lea and half for Ana.

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  no dj, your opinion is never wrong. It’s your opinion. The TK dinner could be a sore spot, too. I do agree with you there. I really thought ana was cool the way she handled herself that evening. TK treated them all horribly. Just remembering his horrid laugh makes my skin crawl.

                  “you’re smarter than I thought” is what she said to sweet Lisa. yes, that was rude. I actually gasped when she said that to her. But that was between Lisa and Lea and it seems that they are now good with each other. The green card comments, again… rude. But that was between Marysol and Lea. .. so again, to me it didn’t and doesn’t justify Ana’s seemingly unprovoked attack on Lea. That’s my opinion. It wasn’t those comments on Lisa and/or the repeated digs at Marysol that set her off, we all know that now.

                  If Ana had said, I have a problem with you and this is why. This is what you did to me and my family. It would have made more sense to me. Maybe that was edited out. Right? Instead we just see this otherwise fair-minded and intelligent woman making fun of someone’s age, mocking Lea’s voice and basically saying,…I don’t like you because your journey in life was easier than mine. That’s how she came off to me. It seemed irrational and immature; very uncharacteristic of the woman I had seen on the show. I may just be coming from a place of being trained in helping very young children express themselves in a healthy, nondamaging, non-judgemental way. We teach our pre-schoolers that you can’t make fun of people…you don’t imitate them, you don’t attack them as people for things they can’t help…like their race, their family, their names, their skincolor, where they were born, etc. … you can only address something they did to you or said to you. You don’t say, you’re not the child of immigrant parents therefore you are of less value than I. NO. That’s not a fair or logical argument, nor does that give the other person anyway to try to fix the supposed problem. Because “the problem” is not really a problem therefore, it is not solve-able.

                  Ana should have been more direct, in my opinion. I would have respected that.

                  • djprincessc says:

                    See Lainey, thats to me where Ana’s attitude with Lea seemed to change in my eyes, with the whole TK dinner fiasco. I could gradually see Ana not liking Lea, that night and after that. I don’t think though that Ana’s comments to Lea were in response to the comments she made about Lisa or Marysol in the past. I just meant that its ok for Lea to hit below the belt, when she says things its funny or her just being over the top, but when Ana did it last night she was “Angry” or “Mean spirited.”

                    After reading the link above that was posted where Ana’s husband explains how Lea went after their marriage numerous times it made me understand where Ana’s “attack mode” was coming from. And when Ana made the comments about Lea selling cold cream out of her car, to me it didn’t sound like she was putting her down like theres anything wrong with it, I think she meant “look lady remember where you came from, stop acting like you’re above everyone and enough with all this high and mighty mayor or Miami bullshit.”

                    I do think that there was a lot edited out because of the whole file/folder she had with her never being addressed to us. There must have been truth in what she was saying bc Lea kept jumping from her seat VERY uneasy! lol. Like I said though thats just how I viewed it. All in all, there are always things going on behind the scenes that we have no clue about that leaves us confused where all the anger is coming from. This has become the norm with Bravo, but not cool. I wonder what else we are going to find out about them when the show is over for the season. lol.

            • chismosa says:

              DJ – hi- i agree with you. I think someone can be a ‘classy’ person (god i am hating that word now)- but be forced to rise to an occasion at some points. So because Ana was upset and coupled the resentment WITH excellent intelligent language === she lost it? No, not in my book.

              Like for me, i find Jason to be a ‘classy’ guy- but the endless egging on and psych 101 from Bethenny made him rise up and strike back. Does not make him ‘un’classy to me.

              • djprincessc says:

                Exactly Chismosa! We all have our limits, I am a non-violent person. Never been in any type of physical fight even as a kid, but if someone pushed me far enough, who knows?!?! Or if I had to defend myself or my family. I agree with you as well about Jason.

    Hello Everyone!
    Hope everyone had a great christmas!!
    I was just wondering if anyone else had read, or if there was any truth to Kim Zolciak and Kroy adopting a 3rd child? I also read on one of the other blog websites (can’t even remember which one) that her show this coming season was going to be based around the adoption. If this is true, I’m afraid Kim has bitten off way more than she can chew at one time, and I think Kroy is probably too young and stupid to know any better. I hate to say this, but all these big changes in Kim and Kroy’s life could really take a toll on a relationship, and theirs will more than likely end in disaster. Too much too quick for Kim….

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I hope it’s just a false rumor. Very bizarre.

      • SCGirl says:

        I’m thinking it’s probably a false rumor too, but I just had to mention it and ask you all what your thoughts were. Thanks Lainey To The 2nd Power!! (Love that name)

        • LaineyLainey says:

          haha! I like it too!!! I’m flexing my muscles…yes, I know it’s a math thing,…but it makes me feel powerful!!!!

    • I thought the adoption story line was about Kroy adopting Kim’s daughters.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        ah-hah!! that would make more sense.

      • SCGirl says:

        What your saying sounds so much more accurate to me NMD. I really wish I could remember the website I saw this story on.I was sitting at an appointment waiting around for awhile today and had already read this entire blog, so I Googled on my phone Real Housewives Blogs for something to occupy my time and that’s how I happened to run across this story. I have no idea which site I hit after all the searches popped up. I’m not one to venture away from this site to often, so I usually take all of the other sites with a grain of salt anyway. I just had to share this and find out if there was anything to it. Thanks for your response!

              Nancy i love my dad’s stories of the Nazis occupying his village in Greece, he was slapped by accident by a German soldier- (long story, soldier thought my father took his dog, but it wasn’t him, he wound up apologizing profusely), the rebels SHOOTING some nazi soldiers a few feet in front of my father (near the end of the war), etc….
              But his town was treated very very well by the Germans and he never forgets that. My dad is in love with German people -DESPITE being occupied! ha. I think that is why i want to marry a German, to make him happy. I like their character as a people, too.
              I love war stories
