Exclusive: Ana Quincoces was NOT Speaking about Lea Black’s Son when she used the words “Socially Awkward”and Other News by NoMoreDrama
There has been a lot of speculation that Ana Quincoces called Lea Black’s teenage son socially awkward in a backhanded way when she said her daughters were not socially awkward during the Real Housewives of Miami reunion. I asked Ana about this directly, and she has exclusively confirmed that the comment had NOTHING to do with Lea Black’s son.
Ana explained: “She said more than once that my girls were inappropriate potty mouths that will have trouble in social circles if they didn’t change their language – and also that the apples didn’t fall far from the tree. So when I said they weren’t socially awkward – that is what I was referring to and not her son who I have never exchanged 2 words with.”
All of this occurred off camera and is not directly related to the comments Lea has put in her Bravo blogs about Ana’s daughters. Part of Ana’s frustration is that Lea made a point to talk about some of the things she did “off camera” such as confronting Marysol about her issues, but then acted as if her off camera comments (that didn’t air) about Ana’s daughters didn’t happen.
As for those documents Ana was holding during the reunion that are reportedly about Lea’s Gala (as reported on this blog). This is what Ana had to say on twitter:
Tweet to Ana: “what was in that folder you were holding at the reunion?”
Ana’s Response: “documents Lea went to great lengths to keep you from seeing.”
Kyle Richards on Vacay with Taylor Armstrong in Vail – Singing an Duet
All I can say is I am glad I’m skiing in Whistler and not in Vail, because how crummy would it be to walk into a bar and see Taylor “Lips” Armstrong on stage with Kyle Richards. Kyle I can take or leave, but Taylor – ugh. I find it really strange that these two ladies would go on a “family” holiday together, but I suppose Lips invited herself along. Anyway, Mauricio (Kyle’s husband) tweeted a video link of the duo “tearing it up” at a bar. You can watch it here.
Mauricio Tweets about Adrienne’s Secret
Speaking of Mauricio – as I was looking through his tweets I noticed that he also has a little something to say about Brandi and Adrienne and that darn secret. This exchange took place after the episode aired –
Mauricio: “A lot of opinions. Basically I was upset because Brandi decided to make something public that was private to another family. That’s all.”
Mauricio: “We are all on a show and that’s expected. Brandi went after the children and family they can’t defend themselves. Not cool.”
Okay. So those are the rules. Thanks for clearing that up Maurice. Oh – and asked why Kim calls him Maurice instead of Mauricio –
“Kim started calling me Maurice since she met me and never changed. I like Mauricio. Some people call me Mau.”
Phaedra Parks and Apollo Nida Expecting Baby Number 2
Who would have guessed that a reality TV star could keep a hard to keep secret. Phaedra Parks has confirmed with People Magazine that she’s pregnant with baby number two, and from the looks of things she’s known for quite some time. Phaedra and Apollo are expecting the baby in 2013. I don’t know when the scenes from last week’s episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta were filmed, but the pregnancy could explain Phaedra’s strange reluctance to get into a hot tub. Best of luck to this young couple who already have an adorable little boy, Ayden.
Phaedra’s castmate Kandi Burruss and her boyfriend Todd have also been vacationing (with Phaedra) in the Bahamas. Viewers have watched Kandi find love with Todd, who was part of the crew that accompanied the cast on their trip to Africa last year. Kandi tweeted this photo from the Bahamas. What is raising eyebrows is how Kandi is covering her ring finger. Could she be engaged?? She looks so happy 🙂
Sister Wives Season 4, Episode 7 by BB
This episode we will be taking yet another trip with Browns. Their last trip was a beach vacation with another polygamous family. This is the same family experiencing financial difficulties and trying to ensure they will be able to follow through with the purchase of four brand spanking newly constructed homes.
It’s Logan’s birthday, and Kody has decided to surprise the family by announcing they will be taking two RVs to Nauvoo, IL for a vacation. The teens look totally thrilled. Nauvoo is sort of the cultural birthplace of the Brown’s religion and where Joseph Smith introduced polygamy. The trip is about 1,600 miles. All of a sudden, they are all stressing about the trip. It will take three days to get there and three days to get back, if they stick to their travel schedule. There will be 21 people going. Hunter and Logan will be staying home, but Robyn’s sister Kara will be going with them. Robyn and Christine will be staying in hotels and Meri and Janelle will be staying in the RV’s.
The Brown’s make a stop in Utah. It’s safe now since the investigation into their family has been dropped. They stop at a pawn shop there. The owners of the pawn shop own the Hiram Smith (Joseph Smith’s brother) Farm in Illinois, which is where the Browns will be staying in while in Nauvoo. They look at a bunch of collectibles of Mormon history at the pawn shop. They traveled about 500 some miles and it takes them about 16 hours. Their potty stops take about an hour and they admit they are very slow travelers. At the end of the first day they need to have a family meeting about keeping to the schedule. Christine thinks it’s laughable they are talking about a schedule.
The second day, they hope to cover about 440 miles and arrive a little earlier at their second destination. Kody mentions that he likes to spend time with all of the wives and rotate. Robyn hates the word rotate and Kody didn’t even know he had used that word. On day three, they want to travel 475 miles. They are not going to make it to Nauvoo in three days. They are encountering high winds and fatigue. They stop at a rest area because of the wind. Kody is tired from lack of sleep. Meri tells Kody she can keep driving but he leaves the RV angrily. He wants to be “obeyed.” Christine calls the word obey a four letter word and thinks it’s offensive. On day four, they decide to stop outside of Topeka, KS called Truck Henge. It’s just a bunch of old trucks sticking out of the ground. The owner gives them a tour and keeps flipping them off when explaining how the authorities kept telling him to pick his trucks up, so he picked them up, literally.
That night, they pull in late to the RV park and Kody is upset he has to take some of them 12 miles away to the hotels. He is exhausted and wants to call an adult powwow. They argue about the scheduling of the trip and decide they need to pray about it. Kody prays that he can maintain his temper and have a better disposition.
The Browns stop in Hannibal, MO to visit the home of Mark Twain (Samuel Clemons). The tour guide reads them some of Mark Twain’s excerpts about his view of Salt Lake City when he traveled through there. He described the Mormon women as poor, ungainly and pathetically homely creatures and the men who marry them as generous and conducting acts of Christian charity. Kody thinks it hilarious and is not offended. Christine says that because he’s not the one being called ugly and downtrodden.
They finally arrive in Nauvoo. They see the temple of the LDS and it’s awe-inspiring. They arrive at the Hiram Smith home where they will be staying. They feel the historical importance of being there because what he did led Kody to have the life he is living. They meet with Joseph, a tour guide, who has long flowing locks. He’s a Mormon, but he’s not of the Brown’s faith and he doesn’t live plural marriage. The Brown know that Joseph the tour guide probably doesn’t normally reveal all that went on in Nauvoo back in the day because the mainstream LDS church doesn’t subscribe to polygamy in this day and age. Kody tells Joseph he doesn’t have to whitewash things for them.
Kody hopes he spills the beans about what went on back in the day. Joseph tells them of a time when Hiram Smith met with Brigham Young. Hiram asks Brigham Young about his brother, Joseph and wants to know if polygamy is going on. Brigham Young tells Hiram that polygamy is being practiced there in Nauvoo and what it’s all about. Hiram didn’t know this about his brother. It’s Kody’s understanding that Joseph Smith had been commanded to take plural wives. Kody believes this and that it wasn’t just something Joseph Smith made up. Joseph the tour guide tells the Browns that Joseph Smith had about 33 wives. Kody always thought he had 17 wives. He also tells them that 12 of those women were also married to other men. Robyn is freaking out that some of these women were married and wives “in the true sense of the word” to two men at the same time. The Browns come to the conclusion that historians debate this theory and it’s all speculation as to why this was so if it was so.
On the last day, they visit the place where Joseph Smith was killed. The local newspaper was printing stories about Joseph Smith and the city council decided they were going to destroy the press. A 22 year old man name William Adams was standing there watching the press being destroyed. According to Meri, this is her great, great, great grandfather. Joseph Smith and the city council surrendered themselves to Carthage courthouse for destroying the press and posted bail. When they were leaving, he and Hiram Smith were charged with treason for declaring martial law in Nauvoo and put in jail.
The director of the museum won’t allow the Browns to enter their building because they are polygamists, so they go to the jail where Joseph and Hiram were incarcerated. One of Robyn’s ancestors, John Soloman Fulmer, was also at the jail as a lawyer for Joseph Smith. A mob gathered that night and entered the jail house and murdered both Hiram and Joseph Smith. The pilgrimage to Nauvoo seems to have reinforced Kody’s belief in plural marriage.
Last weekend I noticed a post from RealLVHousewife that she had spotted Kody pulling out of the site where the four new homes had been built with a u-haul, so apparently the move has become a reality for the Sister Wives. Now Kody won’t have to travel so far when it’s time to rotate. Sunday night will be the two-hour season finale and “reveal” special.
