Blind Item Clue to Adrienne Maloof’s Secret? / Real Housewives of Atlanta Episode Recap

Old Blind Item – Is This the Secret that Adrienne is trying to Keep? and Other News by NoMoreDrama

Blind Item: WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2012 from Crazy Days and Nights

“One of the Real Housewives couples is in panic mode right now because their world might come crashing down because of one side remark made by another Real Housewife that struck way closer to home than intended. Apparently this couple is barely hanging on but does not want the world to see it and were really upset when a cast member who does not even know what is going on said the couple is barely hanging on. The publicists for the couple are in damage control mode, but that is not their biggest worry. Leaks are beginning to emerge in their carefully constructed cover which was never intended for full media attention. Specifically, friends of the couple have been hinting that the couple have an open marriage and that the husband complains he has not had sex in years and that the couple, who do have children might not have actually had natural conception, especially considering the wife’s age and the age of the kids.”

– If this was Adrienne’s secret – it was more likely spilled during the reunion that aired in early February.  Remember Brandi did make a comment about there only being two husbands on the Hawaii trip – indicating that one of the three married couples was a sham – and given that Lisa and Ken and Kyle and Mauricio still are going strong, all evidence points to Paul and Adrienne’s marriage being in open trouble as early as January / February last year.

SONY DSCFilming for Season 3 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills was first reported in mid-April.  The birthday party where Taylor was drunk was May 1 – which was in one of the earlier episodes of the season.  That means that either the timeline was really messed up or they filmed a whole lot of footage before the Faye / Kyle / Brandi dinner  May 23 (Yolanda was at Donna Summer’s funeral putting a time-stamp on this event).    By mid-July Stoopidhousewife reported that Adrienne had sent Brandi and C & D letter (but hadn’t filed a lawsuit yet).  By August Adrienne and Paul had announced their separation, and Adrienne was threatening to quit housewives to save her marriage.

So where does this all lead?  If the secret Brandi spilled was in the blind item posted above, it wasn’t much of a secret.  It had already been leaked months before.

Faye Resnick being Followed.  TMZ is reporting that Faye Resnick has filed a police report saying someone strange is following her and sent her a threatening letter.  Let’s hope this has nothing to do with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and that no one is taking the drama on the show too seriously.

Any Feebies for Jill Zarin?

Just when Christmas is over we receive a gift from Jill Zarin.  Her publicist, Gwen Wunderlich-Smith. threw this gem our way, writing on her facebook wall …

“Hi Guys, Jill Zarin and her daughter Aly would love to go tomorrow for a spa treatment to glam up for the New Year. Does anyone rep a place that might host them? You can def feed it to the weeklies etc. email me please!” 

Listen – if anyone has a free spa treatment in the Vancouver Canada vicinity you can throw it MY way as I’m barely able to walk after three days of skiing.  I’m sure my daughter would love to be included.   You can definitely feed it to the weeklies, etc.  I’m generous that way.  Oh Jillzy, thanks for being you!

Teresa Giudice filming with Elvira and Jennifer Dalton

Let’s check in with our New Jersey ladies.  We all know that it’ll be pulling teeth to get Teresa Giudice in the same room and interacting with the other cast members of the Real Housewives of  New Jersey, so Teresa is filming with a few new friends.  New Cast member  Jennifer Dalton was at Teresa’s house, along with party planner Elvira, over Christmas.  Jennifer tweeted this photo of the three of them (plus her baby Reign) from a party at Teresa’s.  She explained:  “Reigns first Christmas at godmommy Kim’s (l’il Kim’s) house and finished the night at Auntie Teresa’s!”  Jennifer is rumored to be a full-housewife, and Elvira – who has been on the show in past seasons – is likely a friend of the housewives.



Real Housewives of Atanta by RamonaCoaster

real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-5-gallery-episode-509-01They are back in Atlanta and Nene is meeting with Kenya for a meal.  Nene’s impression of Kenya is that she is delusional so they are meeting so Nene can see if she is for real.  Kenya brings up not clicking with Porsha and feels Porsha has crossed the line with her.  Kenya feels it is time to forgive and move on but will continue to keep an eye on her.  Kenya admits she has been in an abusive relationship in the past.  Nene thinks Kenya wants a baby, not a guy.  She jokes about going around the corner to find a guy and a turkey-baster and your imagination can take it from there.

real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-5-gallery-episode-509-03I see strawberry cheesecake, oreo cheesecake and champagne at Porsha’s house when Cynthia rings the doorbell. They sit down to chow on the cheesecakes when Kandi comes in.  Porsha tells them about the African village with a lot of twins because everyone eats yams. Kandi brings up a good point if all the people in the village could be part of the same family, could it just be genetics?  Porsha disagrees, thinks about it then says I don’t know.  She is still eating the yams to be the test dummy to see if the yams-yields-twins hypothesis proves to be true.  Cynthia mentions Porsha and Walter was sleeping on the couch.  They are just puzzled over the whole situation and talk about how men says things to you to stay in a relationship.

real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-5-gallery-episode-509-07Kenya, the lawyer and Apollo are meeting to discuss the donkey bootie workout tape.  Kenya says the video has a niche in the marketplace.  Kenya talks about setting a budget and helping them with the name of the video.  Once again Kenya states she doesn’t like her time wasted since these things should have been worked out before they sat down for the meeting.  She whips out a movie that she starred in and something about role-playing. Where she got role-playing from I guess you need to watch the video. Apollo and the lawyer started arguing about how extreme his exercise regime is and how it needs to be toned down.  Kenya is not liking it because she is not the center of attention.

Cynthia and Peter are shopping in the frozen food section when Peter receives a message alert that Apollo and the lawyer are getting a divorce.  Cynthia brings up that Apollo goes to the strip club.  Peter states that it’s like going to the office.  He has been to a strip club recently.  Cynthia is wondering why a happily married man is going to the strip club. Peter is downplaying it like it is a night out at the bar.  Cynthia mentions having an outing at a strip club with some other couple.  Peter agrees quite heartily, starts salivating while talking about getting lap dances.

real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-5-gallery-episode-509-11Kenya and Walter are meeting to talk about Anguilla.  Kenya felt they were on the same page about marriage and he was leading her on.  She felt blindsided on the trip with how everyone was treating their relationship and Walter’s response.  Kenya brings up her domestic abuse past and how she didn’t like Walter speaking to her so aggressively.  She gave Walter a 6 month deadline. Walter tells her he loves her but can’t feel pressured to marry.  He doesn’t love her enough to marry her.  If her relationship with Walter isn’t done after hearing that, then she is really needs to get a clue or higher a pretend boyfriend who is a better actor than that.

real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-5-gallery-episode-509-12Kandi has a blessing for her new home.  The lawyer states after the blessing comes the wedding.  Todd replies I thought the housewarming is next.  Kandi doesn’t want to scare off Todd like Kenya scared off Walter.  The lawyer is talking about her issues in her marriage.

Porsha and Kordell are in their own hot tub sipping champagne.  Apparently all the guys touched base with Kordell after the trip.  They go over the argument with Kenya again.  Getting tired of rehashing this again.  Does Porsha’s story keep changing over who called who a tramp and a bitch first?

real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-5-gallery-episode-509-19Peter and Cynthia arrive at the strip club.  Cynthia thought the place was a classy strip club.  She should have read more reviews.  There are some grandmothers taking their clothes off in this place.  It might have been amateur night.  Hey, if you never took off your clothes in front of a bunch of strangers for money when you were young, when can you do it? Apollo and the lawyer show up and Apollo mentions not living with time restraints and sectors of the time scale.  I can see why the lawyer tunes him out.  Apollo is a good looking guy with a hot body and I guess that is it.  One stripper was able to move her breasts one at a time.  Now that’s talent.  They start throwing cash at the strippers.   I think Peter has sworn off strippers for the next few years.

real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-5-gallery-episode-509-20Nene walks through the door wearing a gown decorated with money.  The rich bitch has certainly arrived.  It was for a photo shoot for Ebony magazine.  Nene looks good in the money dress and on the cover.

real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-5-gallery-episode-509-24Cynthia, the lawyer, Apollo and Peter are at a party when Miss Lawrence shows up.  Kandi, Porsha and Kordell show up with Kenya not far behind.  They all ask if Walter is coming and Kenya says he is.  The guys are downing shots when Peter asked about Apollo’s incarceration.  Apollo tells them he didn’t go outside for 16 months, only left the cell for one hour to shower and speak on the phone.  Peter thinks it was hell. Kordell is looking on kind of puzzled (I guess no one filled him in on the jailbird sitting next to him). Walter shows up and everyone notices he is ignoring Kenya.  Walter then comes to find her to say hello.  Kenya is about to leave when Porsha comes up to her to talk. Kenya tells Porsha they don’t see them having a friendship.  Porsha states maturity doesn’t always come with age.  Cynthia notices when Kordell talks about the Kenya debacle he takes over the conversation and doesn’t let Porsha talk.

Peter, Apollo and Kordell are still sitting in the corner gossiping about the blog sites.  Apollo has some complaints about his wife that you’d have to be a lunatic to deal with her.

Then the girls are talking about the gossip on the blog site when Apollo comes in. We are treated to some tongue action. I wish they didn’t have to show how much they are overcompensating.

  3. Contessa says:

    Happy Birthday MKValle, JBFan, SammysMom and MelTheHound. Hope you all have a great birthday and New Years Eve and the most phenomenal year ever!!!! Jeff – Mel needs to give you a cookie today.


  4. LaineyLainey says:

    Good mornin’…wow!! lots of NYE Babies!!! Happy Birthday to JEFF (aka MTH), mkVALLE, sAMMYSMOM and JBfan!!! Have fun!

  5. Powell says:

    NMD you are so crazy. I hope you and your daughter get your spa treatments. 😀

  6. California35 says:

    Good morning everyone,

    Thanks for the blogs, as usual 🙂

    (((Cartwheels))). Thank you for sharing your story, I am so glad (and relieved) it has a happy ending for you :-).

    Thanks everyone for Les Miserables reviews – I decided to go watch it, I know I will bring my tissues – but I have been carrying them for a few days any ways.

    I hope everyone has a nice day.

    • California35 says:


      Happy Birthday MKValle, JBFan, SammysMom and MelTheHound. Also to all the Bdays I missed the last few months.

    • Cartwheels says:

      Thanks for taking the time to read it, there is always light at the end of the tunnel my mother likes to say, even if sometimes the tunnel seems to have no end.

      • Someone I used to work with years ago told me that the light at the end of the tunnel was the headlight on the train coming at me….now that’s pessimism! I like the expression it’s darkest just before dawn too.

  7. zoekayla says:

    Happy New Years eve! I am traveling today… On my way home from vacation with kids and grandkids. I’ll land close to midnite…probably will usher in the new year at the baggage carousel!
    I have ten days of Bravo waiting for me on my DVR. Thanks to all for the updates… I’d have gone nuts without them:)
    Here’s hoping all you enjoy a safe, relatively sober celebration!
    Happy Birthday MTH!!!!

  8. Eastbayca says:

    Morning all,
    On other news….Kim K is pregnant with Kanye’s baby.

    • Powell says:

      Yep. She confirmed it on Twitter. Good for them if that’s what they want.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        Of course Kim would get pregnant by a guy with $$$$$$. That reality show money isn’t going to last for every. I wonder how much her mom is going to make from negotiation the sale of all the baby pictures.

    • chismosa says:

      i am so annoyed that we’re going to have to hear about THIS for 6 or 7 more months. yuck!!!

      Can’t wait to see the 4 nannies they hire for this 1 child, these 2 are so narcissistic and conceited i don’t know how they would handle having someone more important than themselves in their lives.

      • chismosa… took the thoughts right out of my head! LOL! I thought the exact same things as soon as I read this news. Now we have to suffer through….what is KK wearing to show off her bump today? Or, what are the cravings? Or worse…..countless pics on Instagram! Uggggh!

        • chismosa says:

          Mark my words, she is SO worried about gaining a lot of weight, and i think she’s going to have to work REALLY hard to not be Jessica Simpson about it— she does not have her sister’s figure— and just WATCH her butt get smaller- she will lessen her butt injections and she will magically look AMAZING during her pregnancy. She’s such a pear shape that she is going to look really big i think. (IMHO she has butt injections, not implants. That is not her natural butt)

          She better hope it’s a boy so she can look slimmer. (i still believe that old wives’ tale!)

          • Oh, I believe you about the weight issue. NOT that weight should be an issue with ANY pregnant women….but she is so annoying and it will become a major issue with her. She has already spoken about her 20 pd. weight gain since dating Kanye.

            And agree…nope, that is not a natural butt! LOL!

    • Cartwheels says:

      I wish it was Khloe 😦

      • LaineyLainey says:

        I know, Cartwheels,…I was thinking the same thing. Khloe and ” Lamby” have been wanting to conceive for so long.

    • Rebecca says:

      Allow me to virtually slap you for mentioning a Kard—- no I’m not going to finish that – on our happy little board.

      Bad, Eastbayca, bad.

  9. BB says:

    Here’s what I was watching last night. If you’re a Cowboys fan, you may want to skip this. 😀

    • Powell says:

      Add this to the list of reasons I’m not watching this season either. I’ll just live vicariously thru y’all.

    • Cartwheels says:

      uhmmm, I hope Danielle sheds some light is the dealing with Melissa and let’s us know exactly what kind of communication they had. I never believed Melissa’s story that it was just a couple of FB posts.

  10. plainviewsue says:

    Happy Birthday to all of the NYE birthday gals!!!!!

    Healthy and happy new year to all!!!

    • VV says:

      Plainviewsue!!! Where have you been?!

      • plainviewsue says:

        I’ve been around! Don’t watch Atlanta or Miami, so haven’t been posting much. Did watch the Miami reunion out of curiousity. It was nice to watch a reunion without caring about any of the ladies!!!!

        Have a wonderful 2013 VV!!!

    • Lisa Renee says:

      PVS, sooooo glad u popped in! happy new year to my favorite twitter rock star! Good wishes for you & your loved ones, Lisa

  11. Contessa says:

    Wow – I cannot believe how cheap and miserly Jill is…asking for freebies for herself and her daughter. She is one sicko, who just keeps getting in her own way one step at a time.

    • Powell says:

      And I guess Aly doesn’t mind so it’s sad this will continue for generations. Did Gloria teach her girls this is the right thing to do?

    • plainviewsue says:

      What is so sad is to ask for something when she can well afford it. Does she really think that spas care about posting that Jill Zarin is there?????????

      I saw she’s hosting some NYE party. Probably at an old age home!!

      • Cartwheels says:

        Exactly, she can afford it, it is not like she is requesting something for charity , she is asking for freebies for herself and her daughter.
        Ally seems so different from Jill, if she finds out she probably would be mortified.

  12. Powell says:

    Cartwheels I was just reading about what you went thru w/your divorce. I’m very happy that you’re w/the right man now.

    Navy, Lainey, TexasTart, Mene. You all are crazy. PrincessP “I didn’t know AARP had a strip club” just took me right over the edge. LOL. That was funny as heck. 😀

    • Powell says:

      Nancy not Navy. 🙂

    • chismosa says:

      Pindy that was HYSTERICAL, yes.

      Cartwheels your story was very moving to me also, so wanted to pipe up that i am happy for you now too

      • Cartwheels says:

        Thanks chismosa, it wasn’t easy to trust again but here I am.
        Coming from a very religious family, it sure wasn’t easy but I am lucky that my family had my back and supported my decision.

    • Cartwheels says:

      Thanks Powell. I am lucky that I had a good support system. There were times when I did feel guilty and thought maybe if I didn’t work so hard, maybe if I was home more often, maybe, maybe, maybe, the only truth is that he was going to do it no matter what and that was just an excuse.
      LOL at the right man comment, I love my husband but he can drive me crazy, just last night we had a little tiff when I was watching the RHOA and the scene of the strip club came, he just looked at me, shook his head, laughed and say “I can’t believe you watch this” , I tried to explain him why but I sounded stupid so I got defensive and continued watching in the living room, LOL

  13. cdnfillie58 says:

    Happy Birthday MKValle, JBFan, SammysMom and MelTheHound…and a Happy Happy New Year to all of you.
    Sidenote: regarding the trunk openign breakdance….I hope there’s a safety feature to prevent breakins…not sure I like owning a car that anybody can swipe a foot under to open 😛

  14. Pghemtchick says:

    Happy New Years Eve! Hope everyone is safe and has a wonderful start to an amazing year! Just read down to Jillzilla so far, but here’s a gem from a twitter user from the New York Daily News regarding the spa:

    @BlckdByJilZarin: Holy Cow..Seriously, @jillzarin?? Pay for your OWN SHIT. #scammer RT @NautiLyn: Jill Zarin is so pathetic..

    The link is a pic of the paper… Seriously, she pays to advertise for free services? Lame. May 2013 Jillwho comes to a realization that she’s not an A -er, D? F? Z? Yes Z-lister.

    • Powell says:

      Definitely Z lister Pchick.

      • Toody says:

        Nothing her bloated ego reveals seems unlike her. She far excels Trailor on the disgust-o-meter and Trailor is a filthy machine. Anyone remember when Jill was interviewed for the radio? When asked what she was doing, as a privileged wealthy wealthy person, to help our society of course she did so much! When pressed for specifics, she said that in her apartment building she (paraphrased) held the elevator door for people (rather than pushing the button to close it in their face????).

  15. cusi77 says:

    Happy, Happy New Year 2013 to everyone from the bottom of my Heart!

    I wish you that everything you wish, come to a realization!

    God Bless you all my Dear Friends! Lynn in Heaven, Thank you for bringing US together!

    NMD, BB, LC, Special thanks ofor keeping us together! There is a Special place for you in my heart!!!

    I love you all and I feel blessed to have you as friends!

  16. cusi77 says:

    Old traditions for today:

    Wear read underwear.(Good luck in 2013)

    At midnight take a cube with water from inside the house and throw it out the front door (Taking the negative from inside the house, out!)

    Throw money from outside, to inside the house front door. (To bring Prosperity in 2013)

    Take your suitcases and go around your front house (To TRAVEL in 2013)

    But mostly, GOD BLESS you All!

    • VV says:

      Sra. Cusi, Happy New Year to you and your family!!!

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Red underwear. LOL. (Will pink do?)

      Add to the list eating blackeyed peas tomorrow. Brings luck and a good year.

    • Cusi, thanks for those tradition tidbits….so cool. Gettin’ out the red undies right now! Ice…check, money…check.

      Blessings to you for a magnificent New Year! Hugs!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      cUSI – i do love this. I am going to do all of those things. But wait, do we it tonight or tomorrow? And I only have a damned thong in red that my husband bought me (Mr. Horndog) he loves it, but I look like the ladies from the Atlanta Skrip Klub in it. Sad. But that’s all I’ve got in red. Luckily my nearest neighbor is about 3 acres away and won’t see me running around my house, throwing ice out, throwing money in,….in a red thong…LORD!!!

      I hope y’all are lauging, cause I am!!!

      • LaineyLainey says:

        lauging = laughing. Oh and how much luggage should I bring when I run around the house? If I bring more luggage will it be a longer trip? LOL!!!

      • Mene Seela says:

        Oh my Lord!
        Is the money you throw into your house the money you earned at the AARP Klub wearing your Ready Reddy?

      • Powell says:

        Hahaha!!!! Oh that’s good Lainey. 🙂

      • chismosa says:

        Can i ask a serious strip club Atlanta HW’s question? When was the scene where Pheadra is up at some young stripper (aka not a “AARP” one)- and she’s like “ooh you shaved up so pretty” while the woman is SPREAD EAGLE in front of Phedra & the woman’s like ‘aw, thank you!’. Did this scene happen already? I feel like Joel McHale on the Soup made fun of this already but it did not air– and it’s this season for sure. Is it from something to come ? Do these chicks decide to go to a real strip club— ?

        imho i don’t think Apollo and Phedrra click well at ALL, and now a second child on the way. Why on EARTH was he in solitary confinement for so long? Did he murder someone or something? That is way way wayyyy harsh for what i thought were not big crimes he committed?

        Those women were hysterical and sad last night.

      • TexasTart says:

        Lordy, lordy, LaineyLainey!!! :-0

        Oh my, I am laughing with you 😛

    • Powell says:

      Oh yes cusi. I remember from last year. LOL.

    • chismosa says:

      Cusi we eat 12 grapes (mayyyyybe 13) under a table at 12 on the dot. I just bought my grapes from the supermarket. I hope it works for something good this year.

      We also have a cake/bread thing and whoever gets the gold coin that is in it (wrapped in foil of course)- has good luck that year

      • chismosa says:

        sorry i’m reading up, and spoke to my mom—

        ~~~~We wear YELLOW underwear, not red for the night.

        ~~~~The money thing is we collect 12 coins from other people, then stand outside and throw them inside the front door.

        ~A Japanese friend of my mom’s (peruvian-japanese)- had to be in a bathtub AT midnight. It’s supposed to be a Japanese thing. She would literally leave parties to go home and be in her bathtub at midnight.

        I know these things sound so dumb to some people but i love LOVE superstitions. ha!

        I can’t put shoes on a table- that’s the biggest superstition in my house.

        • BB says:

          The only one I have is black eyed peas on New Years day for luck. Which reminds me I have to start soaking them for cooking tomorrow.

          • chismosa says:

            yummy 😉

          • TexasTart says:

            BB – I like this tradition because it’s edible!

            Hope you are okay and no ill effects from when the deer collided with you the other day…..I’m happy it was the deer and the SUV that were hurt and not you or your mother.

            Thanks for all you do at Lynn’s Place and have a Happy New Year! 😀

    • Cartwheels says:

      I collect 13 pennies and at midnight grab them with my right hand, go outside and throw them away over my left shoulder, it is said that the little money goes away and leaves space for the big money to come 🙂

  17. Powell says:

    Oh gosh why did they put on Millionaire MM? I would’ve liked to see Million Dollar Decorating.

  18. VV says:

    NMD, good observations on RHOBH timeline. We’re keeping a close eye on that TL here.

    • Rebecca says:

      I swear to superman that Taylor was so drunk in Ojai they had to cart her out. Wasn’t that posted on the old site?

  19. Happy New Years Eve lovelies! I was out early in the stores this morning and they are empty!! My fav time to shop!

    NMD – you crack me up. I hope someone in Vancouver sees your plea and offers you and DD a free spa treatment. If Z-lister JZ can ask…so can you, cuz you are a Rock Star and deserve it. JZ = so pathetic.

    And honestly….I am so over this Maloof “secret” already and it hasn’t even been revealed. I said it before….I have a feeling it will be so anti-climactic and we will all say, “seriously, all that for this?”. Bravo, you are losing your touch! 😛

    Thanks for the Atl recap RamonaCoaster!

    Wishing you all a safe but fabulous New Year celebration tonight! Much love to you!

    A “Happy New Year” blog with a few inspirational words for you is up at my place. Enjoy!

  20. Mene Seela says:

    I’m screaming with laughter! you guys are cracking me up.
    AARP skrippers!!! LOL.
    I hope the menus in that club were in braille because those dancers were not a pleasant sight.
    Maybe that was Bravo’s point. They didn’t want us to see the RH men in a real strip club with sexy dancers or the clubs didn’t want a real lap dance by an attractive woman to be filmed?

    Kim K pregnant? Now her belly will balance out her butt.

    Adrienne’s Big Secret. Why do I want to guess she is midway through a gender change?

    • kidsrfunny says:

      Wendy Williams said on her show last week that her “Hot Topic Staff” had researched Adrienne’s secret. They discovered that she had used a surrogate for her children. Wendy’s point was, so what? Her opinion was that people have children a variety of ways. Why keep it a secret?

      • Mene Seela says:

        I read a long time ago she probably used one. Unless Adrienne stayed at home during the pregnancies it wouldn’t be much of a secret.

        Maybe kids who are conceived that way do get embarrassed or upset about it being discussed. That is a good reason to try to shut Brandi down.

        I’ve never known anyone who has been part of that process. Has anyone here?

      • chismosa says:

        I don’t think the ‘surrogacy’ is the big issue, but the egg donors – if there were. That’s why people differentiate ‘gestational carrier’ vs. ‘surrogate’ a lot. I thiiiiiiiiink………?

        • Cartwheels says:

          I think so too. I don’t doubt she used surrogates, but I am wondering if the kids are biologically hers and if not I understand why she wanted to keep this away from the public knowledge.

      • Powell says:

        kidsrfunny I saw that. Wendy is so right and I’m pretty sure we’ve all said it too. But if A & P didn’t tell their sons and it was a secret then it’s their secret to keep and Brandi, the rag mags or whomever should’ve kept their trap shut.

        • chismosa says:

          a lot of people hate Wendy but i love her. She is so spot-on like 95% of the time!

        • kidsrfunny says:

          Absolutely Powell. It was not Brandi’s secret to tell. I’m just surprised that A&P haven’t discussed this with their children. It seems so 1950’s to keep this a secret from them. (Just because Wendy said it, doesn’t make it true.)

          • kit9 says:

            I think because her kids are very young. Was probably planning on explaining it to them when they were a bit older.

        • Cartwheels says:

          I agree, the way those kids were conceived had nothing to do with the petty BS that Adrienne and Brandi have against each other and should had never brought up by anybody except Adrienne herself if she ever decided to make it public.

          • kit9 says:

            So true. And, Brandi better spill whatever it is that was so god awful that Adrienne did to her. She said in the preview, ‘but you don’t know what she’s done to me!’ so she’s referring to something other than the big whoop phone call Adrienne and Paul made. And in her blog she’s now accusing Ad of some sort of attack on her family. I think she’s full of crap and the now inclusion of Ad doing something that attacks B’s family is nothing more than Brandi, after the fact, trying to justify her attacks on Adrienne’s family.

            • Cartwheels says:

              I agree with you, except for that phone call after the reunion, Brandi hasn’t been able to tell any real reason why she would turn on Adrienne like that. If you don’t like a person anymore, great move on and go on with your life. For Brandi to have involved Adrienne’s children, what Adrienne and Paul did to her must had been pretty awful and must involved her children as well, so short of calling CPS on you I just don’t know what it could be.

        • Putchka says:

          Hi Powell, Happy holidays! And Happy Birthdays to a favorite quartet (especially Mel). I just want to quickly comment. I know 3 women ( 1 a relative) who had children and lied to the children about their father. Not to the non-biological fathers mind you, the men were way cool and raised them as their own. My point is if you’re going to lie to your children but others know the truth it is a hard truth for the kids down the line. If you’re going to lie it better be to everyone. And don’t go on a reality show when you obviously don’t need the scratch. Someone should’ve been smart there. No one acted that way in this mini-tempest. Happy New Year Everyone!

      • Rebecca says:

        AND…. the million dollar question….

        If it was a “secret” why did Brandi know?

        • LaineyLainey says:

          So technically, it wasn’t a secret since Brandi knew…but perhaps they hadn’t told their kids, yet. Not wise, I agree…someone was bound to spill the beans, eggs, …

      • KTinCT says:

        I’m late to the blog here and have read all the replies stating that Brandi should have kept her mouth shut, but if Paul and Adrienne wanted this kept secret (until they told their boys), Don’t Go On A Reality Show!!!!

    Mob Wives new season Sunday 8pm est.

    • BB says:

      That new wife looks kinda scary!

      • Powell says:

        It went so fast that I thought she looked like Rene from MW Chicago.

      • chismosa says:

        there was a mini-article in the newspaper about her— i believe she is Jewish, but she is NOT Italian- she is Polish/Russian — she actually fled the country because of not testifying or something like that— against her husband/boyfriend (she was on that show ‘i married a ….’ or something like that). She fled to Tel Aviv and lived there for years and years- makes me think she must be Jewish (?) and she speaks fluent Hebrew.

        I’m not looking forward to Drita. Ughhhhh

        • BB says:

          Drita’s my fav!

          • chismosa says:

            I think Drita should become fast friends with Teresa/ NJ and GG from Shahs. They can form like a short temper/ screws loose/ physical abuse program.

          • nyc mama says:

            Drita’s my fave too but I hate Teresa, go figure..

            Love and Ramona’s sister are both the ex girlfriends of Chris Paciello who owns nightclubs in Miami/South Beach. He is a real piece of work. He was good friends with Madonna before he went to jail (murder) and is partners with Madonna’s BFF in clubs now that he is out.

          • Lisa Renee says:

            Hi BB, ITA! Drita is my girl. Happy & healthy new year to you & your family. Thanks for a great year of blogs, posts & FYI’s. Extra good luck to your grandbaby boy to finish marinating for his April 2013 arrival & for a healthy mom & baby, Lisa

        • Powell says:

          That’s it chismosa. I married a mobster.

      • Powell says:

        Oh BB I just saw the promo again and I recognize the new wife from ID Investigation’s show on Mob Wives. I can’t remember the name of the show but she was highlighted. He BF at the time was in the mob. He was crazy. She drove the getaway car for some burning of boats that her BF and his buddy did.

    Happy Birthday to my beautiful granddaughter JBFan.

    AND MANY MORE…. la la la la la la

    News Flash. I know you’ll all be really really shocked by this, but Teen Mom Jenelle Evans has broken up with her husband of 26 days.

  24. shamrockblonde says:

    hugs and Birthday best wishes to all of the NYE babies!!!

    and to all of you, on this New Year’s Eve –

    May it be the last of days that hold pain, sorrow and fear – may it be it be the first of days made bright with laughter, love and the ability to grow. May it be the last of days made heavy with anger, ignorance and fear – may it be the first of days made light with peace, acceptance and the company of loved ones. May it be the last of days spent holding on to hurt, and the first of days spent letting go and making room for the beauty that surrounds us each day.

    Thank you for a year of smiles – of learning – of friendship and warmth. Thank you for a year of being there when I needed somewhere to run. Thank you for the confetti, the music and the reminder that love is found anywhere if you only look – be merry – be happy and light of heart, and know I wish you all love, laughter, good health and safe journey –

    Happy New Year to all of you – make it count

    *hugs entire board really hard*

    • AZGirl says:

      Shamrock that’s so good. Hugs right back atcha. 🙂

    • Lisa Renee says:

      That was lovely, I just sent it to my DD. hugs back to you! Happy & healthy new year & I concur, lets make it count, Lisa

    • Boobah says:

      Just beautiful, Shamrock. Thank you.

    • Hugs to you too Shamrockblonde, that was so lovely

      I read on yahoo the other day that every morning, before you get up, say to yourself “today is going to be a wonderful day.” Just to put yourself in a better frame of mind. At the end of the day, think of one thing that happened in your day that you are grateful for.

      Happy New Year everyone! I’m watching NY rockin’ eve in Times Square. We’ve never gone, it’s too cold and you have to spend the whole day there, to hold your “spot.” My husband just said, they put up barriers so you can’t leave, not even to go to the bathroom. Can’t tell you how many of my friends have told me that they will never go back to Times Sq. for NYE again, because they got pissed on & vomited on too! LOL it looks like so much fun on tv. Nice to enjoy it from my cozy living room. 24 more minutes!

  25. chismosa says:

    i don’t know how i’m going to deal with that Jennifer Dalton woman on NJ. She has something wrong going on with her jaw/ lower mouth area. Severe under bite or something— and it affects her way of talking. I could barely listen to her on Pregnant In Heels (aghhh with Rosie’s lithp too, it was a lot to handle). So between that lower face area + forehead fiesta on Teresa ==== good times. Not.

    Anyone watch Shahs last night–? I’m so happy Reza and MJ sort of made up.

    It’s interesting that Bravo lets it’s biggest ratings show – Atlanta HW’s— air when it is clearly ‘vacation’ time on most networks.
    I don’t like Porsha’s husband- — also is he much older than her? Those two are a piece of work.

    I wish you all a very happy & healthy 2013, it’s year of the Snake and i’m a snake so i’m hoping it bodes well for the year that you are in the Chinese calendar to match what you are ! 😉
    Warmest wishes

    • mrs peabody says:

      I’m glad I’m not the only one that doesn’t like him, I find him to be extremely strange and her to be so immature. I also have a hard time following what she is saying alot. My hearing must be going.

      • Powell says:

        mrs p your hearing is just fine. I don’t know what Porsha is talking about half the time. I just cracked up at Kandi’s face when Porsha was talking about the yams. Kandi saying the village just might be related made more sense than yams for having twins.

    • Cartwheels says:

      I have to admit that when Reza and MJ made up last night, I was happy for both of them, they are actually like an old married couple and their friendship should be able to endure the intrusion of other people.
      I hope they don’t let the show get in the middle of their frienship

    • Powell says:

      Shas was good. I know Reza was mad at her and I don’t blame him at all, but I didn’t like the shout out to the 3 & she’s his BFF. I also didn’t like MK not inviting GG to the BD party. GG is acting like a psycho at times and Mike is right that GG will end up w/none of them being friends ifshe keeps it up. MJ should’ve invited GG w/ground rules and if GG broke them tell her that’s it. No more friendship. MJ & Phaedra have 1 thing in common that they wear dresses 2 sizes too small. MJ had on that red dress that was too tight, too short and full brief underwear. If she’s going to wear dresses 2 sizes too small she could at least wear some spanx. She does make enough to afford a pair. Then the gold BD dress her boobs were popping out of it. Being a full figured woman MJ could really look nice. She needs a stylist.

      Kordell was drunk last night. Too many shots. I got what he was saying to Porsha but he needs to let her handle it. The big fight on vaca was her fault anyway. When NeNe asked about their 1st few encounters Porsha couldve gotten her story out w/o making it dramatic w/the name calling. I don’t know. Maybe she learned from the other ladies that she’d better bring the drama if she wants to come back next season so Kim isn’t back.

      • Cartwheels says:

        I didn’t like that MJ didn’t invite GG either.
        As crazy as GG is, she should had been invited and after hearing the list of guest she should had politely declined. MJ does need a stylist.
        I do hope they don’t bring Kim back if only because RHOA has become watchable again, the dynamics somehow are much better, the ladies have more fun and I can laugh at their anthics because except for Kenya and Porsha who are earning their eings, the others seems to pretty much enjoying therselves.
        That scene at the club was disgusting but I had to LOL, it was so ridiculous it was funny, especially Peter comment about Cinthia having planned this so he would never be back in one of those clubs.

        • IceNFire says:

          Agree – GG should have been invited and I hate Asa acting like she is Queen Bee

          • Powell says:

            I understand Asa’s point about GG cause she’s tried to understand where the anger comes from w/GG since last season & I like ASA but there’s something I can’t put my finger on about her. On Twitter this morning she had some 2013 wishes that were good and I retweeted 1 of them but another tweet she sent ended w/#persianpopprincess or whatever it is she says & I just laughed. I did feel bad for her that her gig w/the fashion designer in NY didn’t happen. I didn’t think it would when that lady that works w/the designer made that smart remark that she hadn’t heard Asa’s music. It was like she was saying she didn’t care if the designer liked her music, if she didn’t they wouldn’t be hiring her. Asa’s income is so precarious.

      • chismosa says:

        Powell i agree w you on everything here. I think MJ was just as sedate last season I think it’s her personality in general (maybe compensating for having dealt with that sorry excuse for a mother all her life, which is also my theory as to why she sticks with GG on some things. GG may remind her of her mom in some ways ?)
        I don’t know WHY she dresses so inappropriately. Tbh I don’t mind the jumpsuits —–occasionally, she looks better in those than in the super tight low cut stuff. And that red dress was so 1999! It’s fine, but for these fashionistas on a bravo show, come on! 😉

        I agree about Reza and the shout out thing. But he may just be a VERY bitchy enemy when fighting a someone. I didn’t like that I agree.

        As for the MJ party and not inviting GG, I think that lately WHEREVER GG goes she just goes off. I can see MJ just wanting a fun birthday especially since as we saw last season she usually doesn’t celebrate her bday “big”.

        I also agree w everyone saying Asa has gotten a big big head this season, even bigger than Reza, IMO! Now that’s big!

        • VV says:

          Hey Chismosa,
          Have you checked Bethenny’s Timeline on Twitter? Was she drunk or having a meltdown? It is uncharacteristic of her to send so many tweets in a row with “I love yous”

          Here’s the first one:

          “Happy new year east coast! I couldn’t love you more. I couldn’t be more grateful to have you in my life. Thank you for accepting me! Xo!”

          • chismosa says:

            Vv just catching up here now, will try to catch u maybe tomorrow ! I do see this as so odd, you KNOW I agree with you

  26. AZGirl says:

    Happy New Year’s Eve Everyone! Just back from the doctors and another round of meds. Should be back in the gym by Friday. I actually lost 3lbs being sick 🙂 Got some calls from gym buddies wondering where I have been. Heavens I am a creature of habit.

    First Born left last night for Flagstaff to spend New Years with Second Born. Texted me a picture and Flagstaff is a winter wonderland. How beautiful it is. It was snowing hard when he got to the Sedona exit on I-17. I bet Sedona is magnificent. Red rock and snow.
    They will watch the Pinecone drop at midnight downtown. Jealous. I am stay home and getting over this freaking cold/cough.

    • chismosa says:

      Feel better AZ. Everyone i know is sick around here on Long Island- the flu is going around i believe. I’m taking Emergen-C like crazy.

    • Powell says:

      Well I hope these meds get rid of it AZGirl. You gym buddies were going where oh where is AZGirl. LOL. You’ll be back…. I hope your kids have fun ringing in the New Year together. I like to hear sibs hanging out together. You and PrincessP’s kids are lucky to have one another.

      • AZGirl says:

        Thank you Powell. I guess “Little Miss Work It T-shirt” had to ride the Resolution spin class all by herself. She probably “sandbagged” it. So sorry I missed watching her suffer for 90 minutes 🙂
        I am lucky that my son’s are so close. They really are Arizona born and bred and love this state. They have friends in Flag and all over. I really am jealous. I love Flagstaff also. Have great new years. I will be checking in all day due to not going anywhere.

    Good morning to everyone & happy new years eve! So many birthdays, hope all have a great day. Sammysmom, you taught me so much about school tuition, thanks & enjoy your day.
    Jeff F/K/A WTFIJeff, hope you & Mel have the best day! Thanks for all the great blogs & laughs & rants & videos & everything. Hope this year is full of health & happiness.
    NMD, so enjoying your ski trip thru your words. I refuse to pay money to be cold on purpose lol. Sounds like a wonderful family holiday, thanks for all you do!!
    I sent DD off to school with frozen black eyed peas to be eaten tomorrow, I am very superstitious! I will not be walking around the house with suitcases since I hate to travel. I will throw ice & water out the front door & then go outside to throw money into the house. As long as I dont have to do it wearing only red panties. Don’t own any, not like I can ask my neighbor, cup of sugar no problem, red panties, I will be getting doors slammed in my face.

    I have been trying to keep up and want to say Congrats to Cityside! A tax deduction & a christmas present y’all hit bingo! BB you are next 🙂
    Saw Detox made contact, glad she is well
    LaineyLainey, snow in Texas delaying a flight frm NYC, crazy. Glad he made it home safe
    AZ Girl, hope you are feeling better, something in your life needs a bleach wipe. The mystery is what could it be. I’m thinking the gym.
    Wishing all of you a safe holiday, Lisa

    • Powell says:

      Lisa you are funny. You made those blackeyed peas. I hear you w/paying to be cold. LOL. You know I can’t stand the cold weather but NMD is making it sound so good. Her family is having such a great time. Happy New Year. 🙂

      • Lisa Renee says:

        Thanks Powell & Happy New Year to you & yours also. I made the peas before christmas so they would be good & frozen for the trip to her new life. With all the things we had going on & DD living on her own I was out of my mind about peas! I was terrified she wouldnt have peas for new years day. Priorities, gotta luv em, even if they are crazy ones, Lisa

        • Powell says:

          Right. 😉

        • TexasTart says:

            Hi TT, I have so enjoyed getting to know you through your posts. I don’t know about the good mom part, crazy as a loon but good, not so sure right now. 17 boxes & not one pair of long johns. We were out to dinner on one of her last nights here & someone mentioned long johns. Both our faces were frozen in the WTF position because neither of us thought about it. 6 pair boots, several coats & winter clothes for several people. Long johns….MIA! I went online to target & sent her plenty ASAP. But, she will have her peas, I hope they help keep her warm lol. Happy New Year to you & your loved ones, Lisa

                Hi Mena, thanks for the tip. Never heard of that brand. If it works for skiing it will work for Michigan. I will totally look into that, very appreciated. Happy & healthy New Year! Your post is one of the reasons I love this place, Lisa

    Happy New Year to everyone! 2012 was an OK year for me, definitely better then the previous couple years so I am really looking forward to 2013 being fabulous. New Years is my fave holiday and usually I am in Las Vegas, but will be relaxing at home this year. I am so glad I have gotten to know some of you ladies more (Detox, Nancy, Chismosa, Lainey) and look forward to getting to know even more of the amazing people on the blog this coming year! Hope you all enjoy your New Years celebrations safely. Xoxo!

      Here’s to a fantabulous 2013 DJP. 🙂

      • djprincessc says:

        Yes Powell! Back at you!! Raising my glass of Ramona Pinot Grigio to you! 🙂

        • Powell says:

          Ramona PG. I haven’t tried it yet. I saw Cynthia has a Mascato. I keep seeing Mascato. Kim Z has one. I’ve only tried SGM & didn’t like it. So in the New Year I’ll try other SG flavors, Ramona PG- I think it’s in my area & someone’s Mascato. I haven’t really looked for Fabelinni.

          • djprincessc says:

            lol. I was really kidding, I Pinot Grigio is my have! But I haven’t tried Ramonas wine though…I probably should! 🙂

  33. VV says:

    Brandi tweeted:
    “Im going to pick up my kids early! Theyneed mommy!!!! :)))))))”

    Good for her. However, is not like the Cibrians like to give up their time with the kids. The tweet makes it sound like they wanted to go home to Brandi. Good for her!

    • Powell says:

      Good for her.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I think she’s a fun HW; but I voted her the HW I would trust the least. I wonder if anyone else did.

    • Mene Seela says:

      I don’t understand why Brandi had to tweet that. It’s nice the kids want to be home with her and all – but it sounds like the reason she tweeted is to take a dig at LR & EC.

      • VV says:

        Radaronline tweeted something in the lines Miracle Glanville didn’t fight with Rimes during the Holidays. Brandi replied wrong again.

    • Cartwheels says:

      That probably refers to something else, Eddie and Leann left the kids with Brandi on Saturday and left for Cabo on Sunday morning, so wherever Brandi is picking them from is not from Eddie’s

    Happy New Year’s Eve everyone?

    As per tradition, this Italian will be eating lentils tomorrow. My sister makes a soup with the chicken soup base (carrots, celery, onions, stock), cooks in the lentils for 40 minutes, then adds barley for 30 minutes. Even if you dislike lentils (raises hand), you can enoy your good luck meal as this is a very healthy, tasty soup.

      I really do hope that this is not another season of Teresa bashing, with that said I have mix feelings about this woman Penny.

      Oh and VV the next “my stories” tweet from Bethenny will be a big picture of a dessert that she will ((claim to )) be eating. She did the burger thing the other day, now onto sweets. Or that she will have ‘baked at home w Bryn’ and ‘for the recipe, go to’. Blech

    It’s New Year’s Eve and I’m googling how to make buttermilk. Those scones I’m to bring tomorrow? They require buttermilk. That last trip to the store? Totally forgot the buttermilk. It’s not a good night to run out and get some. So… trying vinegar and milk. The Internet says this will work, but I suspect the 2% milk is going to cause a problem.

    Happy new year!

      • Kansas Girl says:

        Most all the stores closed at 6 this evening, so I’m on my own to invent something like buttermilk. But yeah, I’m not driving tonight. Hopefully the roads are good by 10 tomorrow. I’m invited to meet the sister tomorrow (and bring scones). Whoooo.

          I’ve tried the vinegar and milk thing before; I believe it’s one T of vinegar and add enough milk to make one cup. Let stand and there you go.

    Happy New Years to all my friends and the loyal lurkers here. I hope you have a great New Year.
    We are having a night in with some take out food and a little bubbly (the kids can drink Martinelli’s apple cider).

    Hi Powell, Happy holidays! And Happy Birthdays to a favorite quartet (especially Mel). I just want to quickly comment. I know 3 women ( 1 a relative) who had children and lied to the children about their father. Not to the non-biological fathers mind you, the men were way cool and raised them as their own. My point is if you’re going to lie to your children but others know the truth it is a hard truth for the kids down the line. If you’re going to lie it better be to everyone. And don’t go on a reality show when you obviously don’t need the scratch. Someone should’ve been smart there. No one acted that way in this mini-tempest. Happy New Year Everyone!

    I enjoyed the Atlanta Housewives once again.

    I am so over the Walter/Kenya thing. I’m bored with it now and I am tired of looking at Walter’s huge ears.

    I see that there is equal opportunity in stripping. You don’t have to be a “ten” to hit the pole. That place sure was a hole in the wall but Peter was sure to make the best of it.

    I could not stomach that wet and nasty kiss between Phaedra and Apollo. I also need Apollo to just sit pretty and not talk. He made up far too many words last night.

    I hate Kandi’s taste in clothes. I hope it is not the stuff she is selling at her store.

    Wishing my family here a fabulous, wonderful and healthy New Year! I’m right there with AZ I am sick as a dog with the worst head cold and cough – yuck. I’ve spent two days shuffling from bed to sofa. Today is the first day I am breathing without a bad wheeze. I finally gave in and contacted my doctor (as I am prone to bronchitis) and he is giving me some meds that will include prednisone(?????) for the breathing portion. Anyone here every take prednisone? I am a bit reluctant, as the breathing has improved, but my energy level is at an all time low. XXOO

    • Kansas Girl says:

      I’m sure Nancy will check in with details, but I’ve taken prednisone when I’ve had bronchitis. I think it reduces swelling. FOLLOW the instructions. You take it in decreasing doses. It works and you’ll feel better. Bad way to start the new year, being sick, but hope you’re better soon!

    • Nancy says:

      Hi Contess,
      I’m sorry that you aren’t feeling well but take the prednisone as directed.
      It’s for the inflammation. Happy New Year!

      • Lisa Renee says:

        Hi Nancy, Happy new year to you & your loved ones, esp the BFF! Did you hear the good news, Janelle dumped her husband & shes NOT pregnant! Proof God hears my prayers & watches MTV, Lisa

        • Nancy says:

          Happy New Year to you as well. My BFF has been skiing this last week where
          NMD has been. She just had BRAIN surgery and she skiing! I wish I was that
          strong. Poor Janelle… Very sad. I am DISGUSTED that Kim Kardashian is
          pregnant as she’s still married. Her father would turn over in his grave if he
          knew how his children turned out. Esp Kim.

    • Just Wondering In Jersey says:

      I’ve taken prednisone for bacterial bronchitis and it had me walking into walls and crying for no reason. I hope you have a better response.

  51. Contessa says:

    HI KG and Doc Nancy,

    Thank you and was hoping someone would chime in about prednisone. Okay I am taking it, as the wheezing is still there. You are all so awesome and thank you as I am alone in the house right now. XXOO

    • Nancy says:

      Hi Contessa,
      Prednisone takes time to work, at least a day, sometimes days or even weeks. You have to taper it when you stop it if you’ve been on it for any length of time because it suppresses the adrenal glands. If you stop prednisone too quickly & then get exposed to a stress, you won’t be able to respond. It’s potentially life-threatening. That’s why
      you need to take it as directed. I hope you will be feeling better soon.

    • AZGirl says:

      Hey Contessa I just started on it yesterday. I have never taken it but my doctor said the coughing had gotten bad and needs to stop. 1 pill with food 3 times a day for the first 3 day and then I taper off to 2 a day then one.

    • chismosa says:

      I hope you will feel better; I was on prednisone once for a nasal infection (along with augmentin), and I had like heart racing issues? The doctor decided it was the pred. I had never felt that before i thought i was going to have a heart attack.
      One of my dogs incidentally takes a very small amount of pred every 4 days for his IBS.

      Feel better!

  52. Mookies1mom says:

    Kansas Girl – to make buttermilk use one tablespoon of lemon juice to one cup of milk and let it sit for 30 minutes. This has worked very well fro me in the past.

    Hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year. We are staying home where it’s warm. See you all next year.

    Happy New Year East Coasters! Central time we have to wait another 32 minutes!

    I dont know how to save twitter stuff but someone on Jill Z twitter told her she looks like a fat Lindsey Lohan. BTW my bd is 01-29

    • chismosa says:

      She WISHES. I know Lindsay looks not great these days but I think she has a gorgeous face. JillZilla looks NOTHING like her

      I typed into my phone Jill with a z attached and the Auto correct made it “””JillZilla. “””””” What?! Haha That is so weird and funny

    Kim Zolciak’s son KJ broke his arm? Holy crap. Horrible! Was Kim too busy guzzling vino to watch her baby? How does a 17 mo. break a bone? Kim said he fell. Isn’t that what babies his age do? Poor kid. I can just hear Kim…’SWEETIE!!! Take KJ to the hospital!!!’.

    • Orson says:

      I have no experience being a parent. Although I’m no fan of KZ, I do believe 17 month olds tend to trip and fall. And attempting to catch oneself in a fall/trip is a good way to break a wrist. I’ve witnessed a man in his 60’s manage to get compound fractures in both arms trying to catch himself after tripping. I’m not getting the torch and pointed farm implements for Kim out yet.

      • chismosa says:

        Yeah but I’m sorry, this young and a broken bone? Moms have to pipe up and tell me what’s what but this looks wrong

        Also: where did the red hair come from on her son? Who has red hair on their two families? Sorry I’m very into this, my BFF is an Irish redhead & we discuss often

    Good Morning and Happy New Year!

    Hmm, I wonder if NMD scored any spa services in Vancouver! Thanks for keeping Lynn’s Place going while you’ve been on holiday! 😀
