Shahs MJ has done Time and Other News by NoMoreDrama

Well this is a first.  MJ from Shahs of Sunset is more than a hot mess; she is also a felon. What was her crime?    According to RadarOnline, while 18 and working as a bank teller, she was approached by four men who asked her to take part in a fraud scheme.  The court documents show that she first refused to aid the men, but after they threatened her, her father, and her boyfriend, and she agreed to assist them.  She made several deposits on behalf of the them, involving “monetary funds in excess of $100,000.”  Because of the fraud she was denied a real estate license in the early 1990s, but after doing her time (one month in prison, house arrest and probation), getting a college degree, and doing community service she was allowed to get a license.  I’m not really sure how I feel about this.  On one hand she has done her time and deserves another chance – but on the other hand, was she hoping to keep this a secret, and if so, why did she go on a TV show.

Details from Bethenny Frankel’s divorce demands from Jason Hoppy surfaced yesterday with TMZ reporting that Bethenny filed for primary custody of their daughter Bryn, as well as child support and medical coverage.  RadarOnline published a story later in the day with a source close to the situation quoted as saying, “Jason was blindsided by Bethenny’s request for primary custody of Bryn. The plan all along had been for them to have joint custody of the two year old. Jason believes that Bethenny has filed for primary custody so that if her talk show does shoot in Los Angeles, he won’t be allowed to object.”

Timeline Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Taylor’s Fake Birkin Handbags

Last night on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Taylor Armstrong told viewers she was forced to hand over her wedding ring and Hermes bags (Birkins) to settle a lawsuit.  According to Huffington Post this occurred around July 14th.  They printed the story because her Hermes bags turned out to be fakes.  The ring, with a canary yellow diamond was worth $250,000, which may explain why she teared up when she talked about having to hand it over.

This scene was supposed to take place a week after Kyle’s dinner party with Faye Resnick, according to Kyle – but her dinner party took place around May 23rd – when Yolanda was attending Donna Summer’s funeral.

RadarOnline is reporting that Network Executives were furious at Lisa Vandercamp for appearing on Good Morning America to promote her book and new show.  GMA is in a fierce ratings war with NBC’s Today Show.  The main story is that that RadarOnline again seems to have completely made up a story – at least according to Lisa.  She tweeted:  “Utter nonsense @radaronline BRAVO coordinated the schedule and even came with me….”

Lisa was also on Say Anything with Joy Behar and talked about the perils of Reality TV on marriage.  The clip is here.

Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Episode 8 by BB

Now, where were we before we were so rudely interrupted by the holidays?  Oh, yes.  Brandi has publicly revealed a secret involving Adrienne Maloof that was so horrific it could not be repeated on television; or so Bravo has led us to believe.  Anyway … someone feels it’s their civic duty to put Ms. Brandi in her place for this breach of confidentiality.

Under the guise of showing off her badly redecorated dining room, Kyle decides to throw Brandi under the bus.  She does this by having the (according to Camille) morally corrupt Faye Resnick, who doesn’t even know Brandi, take her to task, while the others either sit there silently (Taylor), pile on (Kyle and to a lesser extent, Camille), or come to Brandi’s defense (Lisa and Marisa).  By the way, in case you didn’t know it before now, Faye Resnick is not only morally corrupt, she’s also a bad interior designer, as can been evidenced by Kyle’s dining room.  Brandi, who can’t take any more of Faye’s holier than thou attitude, decides to leave the torture chamber, I mean, dining room, via the kitchen.  Continuing on …

Kyle (in her interview) says with a straight face that Faye was not trying to hurt Brandi.  Epi 8 1She runs out after Brandi, tries to comfort her, and tells her she doesn’t want her to leave so upset (I don’t believe a word coming out of Kyle’s mouth.)  Lisa doesn’t appreciate Faye’s patronizing attitude towards her for defending Brandi, and reminds Faye just what Adrienne did to try to hurt her business.  Faye thinks Lisa and Brandi are working as a team and Lisa gets Brandi to do her bidding for her.  I could certainly say the same about Kyle and Faye.  Poor, poor Kyle is in a bad place to be between Faye and Brandi.  How many of you believe Kyle’s assertion that she’s caught between her two friends Brandi and Faye and has an allegiance towards them both?  Please raise your hands.  That’s what I thought.

After Lisa gets Brandi into a limo to send her home and she and Kyle go back in, Lisa decides it’s probably time for her to leave, also.  I swear Kyle has a grin on her face when Lisa says some things aren’t that easy to fix.  Kyle is eating this drama up like a hot fudge sundae.

Next we are at Taylor’s, who tells us she has so much going on in her life, she doesn’t have the energy for Brandi’s drama.  Alisha, a psychic/clairvoyant from the Agape International Spirit Center (just for the record, it’s not a church as Taylor calls it), shows up to help Taylor get rid of the negativity in her life.  Taylor mentions a connection between this “church” and Oprah.  Sorry if anyone reading this is associated with this organization or psychic, but I just couldn’t keep a straight face watching this woman.  I’m not sure Taylor is buying it either.  The clairvoyant does all this “father is this?” and bending/jerking herself all around.

If I were Oprah or a member of this center, I would be a little embarrassed, but to each their own.  This psychic is so good, she can predict that Taylor’s $1.5 million lawsuit will result in a settlement.  They go through the house ringing bells and stuff and Taylor is pronounced blessed and protected.  She promises to later tell Taylor what really happened with Princess Diana because she (Princess Diana) told her about it.

Epi 8 3Mark, the Yoga instructor, is going to do some Yoga instructing with Kyle and Marissa.  Marissa shows up and tells them she’s in the middle of a big deal and just came from the office.  Kyle brings up the dinner party and Marissa says it was like high school and Kyle says it was more like elementary school.  Well, Kyle has her friend Faye to thank for that.  While they are doing their Yoga exercises, they talk about the Brandi/Adrienne comment situation.  Kyle doesn’t think Brandi feels bad about it and tells Marissa so.  Mark tries to get them on back on task.  Marissa thinks Brandi is a cool girl and was friendly to her that night.  She thinks Camille and Taylor were rude because they didn’t engage her or make her feel welcome.  Marissa tells Kyle it wasn’t Faye’s fight to take on.  I’m glad Marissa’s not tiptoeing around this stuff and says what she thinks.  Kyle promises Marissa that the women are really fun and Marissa says that remains to be seen.  Mark tells them both to stop talking.  I’m with Mark.

Brandi and Lisa meet for some shopping.  Brandi announces she doesn’t like Faye and she’s over it.  Lisa tells Brandi Scheana wants to talk to her.  Scheana has worked for Lisa for three years and Lisa has to be careful to try to keep Brandi and Scheana apart during social functions.  Scheana had an affair with Eddie Cibrian while Brandi was pregnant.  Brandi tells Lisa she has a problem feeling sorry for Scheana, but will meet with her for Lisa’s sake, not Sheana’s.

Most scripted scene of this episode.  Taylor gets a call from her lawyer/married boyfriend John, who tells her some things have come up that have to do with the litigation.  She’s blaming this lawsuit on Russell and says she’s responsible only because she also signed the settlement agreement.  The lawsuit was brought on by  Robert Lorsch of MMRGlobal.  He’s suing for breach of the settlement agreement both Russell and Taylor signed.  The proposal is that he gets her wedding ring and two Hermes bags to sell so he can try to recoup some of his losses.  Taylor gets all upset and tells her married lover/lawyer that she cannot imagine someone having the guts to ask someone for their wedding ring.  She has until the next day to decide.  We all know she settles.  I mean, what else was she gonna do?

Yolanda’s three kids show up for dinner and talk about their day.  She’s making spaghetti Bolognese.  Gigi mentions she misses playing volleyball.  Yolanda reminds her that volleyball and modeling don’t mix.  The workouts you do for volleyball are not conducive for a model’s physique.  She tells Gigi she has to make a choice.  Gigi asks her if she remembers when she used to wear athletic wear all the time and Yolanda says it made her wonder if she were a lesbian at the time.  David comes in to have dinner and lets us all know how wonderful Yolanda is.  Hey, Yolanda and David think each other are the most wonderful people in the world.  If it works for them, it works.  What can I say?

Brandi goes to visit Camille.  They have grown close and Brandi says she loves her and Camille gives her good advice.  (I wonder what happened because I don’t think they are BFFs at the present time.)  Camille tells Brandi about trying to settle with Kelsey and the fact that her kids can’t say her name in his house.  They talk about how their husbands are actors and have giant egos.  Brandi wants to get Camille’s advice about talking to Scheana.  Camille says if it gives Brandi closure it might be a good idea, but it probably wouldn’t be good to get too many details.  Brandi thinks if she can go to therapy with Leann and Eddie, she can probably talk to this girl.  Camille says if she’s going to keep seeing her when she goes to Sur, it would probably be a good idea to clear the air with Scheana.  Camille wishes her luck.

Epi 8 4Adrienne shows up at Paul’s office and tells him immediately she only has ½ hour then chastises him for putting her purse on the floor.  She’s there to discuss a skin care line they want to market together.  He tells her he’s done his research and she tells him she has too.  I’ve noticed Adrienne is quite the one-upper with everyone.  I’ve never seen anyone so competitive, even with her own husband.  Adrienne wants to distance herself from “the girls” for a while and she uses the word “toxic” when referring to Brandi.  Adrienne says Brandi has put a strain on their relationship. (I’m assuming she’s talking about Paul and herself.)  That Brandi sure is one powerful chick if she is responsible for breaking up that marriage over one spoken comment.  Man, I wish I knew what it was Brandi said.

Epi 8 5Taylor and her married boyfriend/lover/lawer John meet Lisa, Ken, Kyle and Maury for dinner.  It’s been two weeks since Ken’s surgery.  Lisa says she’s glad to see Taylor laughing again and Taylor tells them she’s settled her lawsuit.  She starts crying when she tells them they took her wedding ring and her two Hermes bags.  Taylor is glad it’s over. Lisa tells her she’s glad because she’s seen her struggling and she’s proud that she’s turned a corner.  Kyle tells her material things can be replaced.  Taylor tells them they are all her friends.  Kyle tells them she loves happy dinners.  John tells Kyle he saw Kim at some club and Kyle is surprised.  She tells them she wasn’t invited to Kim’s son’s Chad’s 21st birthday party.  Kyle keeps telling them she’s fine with it.  She doesn’t think she knows her sister that well anymore.

Lisa sits with Scheana before Brandi arrives for the talk.  She tells Scheana she doesn’t have to meet with Brandi, but Scheana wants to get it out and get it over with.  Lisa thinks this will be a good lesson for Scheana.  Brandi arrives and Lisa gives her a hug.  Lisa reminds Brandi Scheana was young and did a stupid thing.

Scheana tells Brandi she wants to get things off her chest.  She starts off by telling Brandi she’s sorry and then she starts crying.  Brandi tells her not to cry because she’s not the one who lost her family and lost everything.  If someone is going to cry, it’s not going to be Scheana.

Epi 8 6Brandi tells Scheana not to play the hurt person and not to cry about being hurt by Eddie.  I think what got to Brandi the most was when Scheana went on Access Hollywood to whine about Eddie cheating on HER with Leann.  This was while Brandi was pregnant with Eddie’s second child.  Scheana tells Brandi things she didn’t know about her affair with Eddie, including how much they were together and which of Brandi’s friends knew about the affair, but claimed to Brandi they didn’t know anything about it.  They both come to the conclusion that Eddie is a lying liar and Brandi says if he could act as good as he could lie, he would have 85 Oscars by now.  Brandi tells Scheana how perfect her two little boys are and how she never wants them to be hurt.  When Brandi talks about her kids, it finally hits home for Scheana how much Brandi has gone through.  She tells Scheana she doesn’t hold her responsible and for her to never be the other woman again because she’s better than that.  They agree they don’t hate each other.  After Brandi leaves, the show segues into Vanderpump Rules.

Vanderpump Rules by Jen Freeman

After all the hype, Bravo finally delivered the debut of its newest “reality” show, Vanderpump Rules.  Hoping to capitalize on the generous viewership, producers wove the first episode into/onto the Housewives of Beverly Hills.  The Sur scenes began with Brandi Glanville agreeing to sit down with her ex’s mistress, Scheana, the newest member of the Sur waitstaff.  Expecting the worst, Scheana bravely apologized and owned up to her part in the downfall of Brandi’s much-publicized divorce.  Brandi was honest, and although originally reluctant to forgive, she actually controlled herself in the situation beautifully, and even left with a sweet -yet akward – shoulder pat on the relieved Scheana.

We were then introduced to the rest of the gorgeous staff, Guillermo (Lisa Vanderpump’s business partner), Peter the manager, Stassi (who previously dated Peter, but now lives with Jax), Jax the bartender, Kristen, and Tom who’s been dating Kristen for four years.  As always, Bravo delivers beauty, sex, and drama with this new batch of stars.  vanderpump-rules-season-1-gallery-episode-101-02_0Scheana is the new girl on the scene, and the rest of the female staff treat her with catty eye-rolls, jealousy, and flat animosity.  Between the few scenes of actual waiting on tables, Stassi cringes at any conversation or interaction between Jax and Scheana.

Stassi, who Lisa describes as a “jacked up, over zealous, cheeky ‘lil minx,” plainly states Scheana is a known liar and man-stealer, alludes to her earlier situation with Brandi’s ex-husband.  She goes on to explain that she attended a private school in New Orleans and that Scheana is just not someone she would ever associate with.  She later proudly admits that she intentionally is mean to new girls in an attempt to make them quit, such as in the scene where the staff has a sit-down to discuss the night’s tips and the tip-out policy.  Scheana explains that it seems unfair that they all take the same tips, regardless of their personal contribution to the tip pool.  Seeing as how Scheana was the best tip maker of the night and Stassi was the lowest, it comes as no surprise that Stassi thinks her ideas are ridiculously stupid and that she’s even out of line to express an opinion, despite Lisa having asked for their input.  Fueling the fire, Lisa stays silent and allows Stassi to play her bitch role.

We get a quick look at Scheana attempting to become a pop star by making Brittany-esque/porn star/phone sex worker oohs and ahhs in a studio recording her first demo.  vanderpump-rules-season-1-gallery-episode-101-06_0

Later, Kristen – Tom’s live-in and Stassi’s best friend – boasts that everyone who comes to Sur comments on the staff there, and says that that is just because they are all great looking, the best looking waitstaff, and all other waiters/waitresses just want to work at Sur.

Katie, while completely hot in her own right, plays it cool in this episode and just smiles, laughs, and seems to be the bystander in most scenes, placed in the role of Stassi-groupie.  Case in point when Stassi in true mean-girl style makes Scheana polish glasses.  vanderpump-rules-season-1-gallery-episode-101-21_0When Lisa encourages her to stand up to Stassi, Scheana goes to confront Stassi in the alley, of course!  Private school girl hanging out with the dumpsters responds with hostility, but does admit to having trust issues and insecurities.  Scheana defends herself with the fact that she has a boyfriend, with whom she is happy, and her past shouldn’t affect Stassi’s life or their work relationship.

vanderpump-rules-season-1-gallery-episode-101-25_0Unfortunately, the situation does seem to be deeply affecting her relationship with Jax.  Insecurities and distrust in over-drive, the first episode wraps up with a long and sometimes confusing collage of scene clips of Stassi and Jax fighting, maybe breaking up, someone cheats, someone gets laid in the bathroom at work (eww sexy?), Jax boasting of the best sex he’s had in a long time, a parking lot brawl between some of the guys, Stassi going off on her so-called two groupies, Kristen and Katie, Stassi in a drunken outburst in a club, and then Lisa’s reprimanding of all the alcohol-fueled sex and fighting going on.

While not a lot of time spent on getting to know anyone, this first look definitely supplies even more hype of the season that is sure to deliver plenty of young hot bodies with a whole lotta drama!!

Watch What Happens Live by BB

Time for tea and Vandercrumpets.  Lisa is wearing a black lace see-through top and says something about feeling fat after the holidays.  Lisa is very happy with her new show Vanderpump Rules, although she admits she is seeing half of it for the first time since she wasn’t there the whole time.  Wait, isn’t she the executive producer?

The bartender is Cesar Milan, the Dog Whisperer.

The drinking prompt is the sound of Scheana groaning.

Andy goes to the vault and shows a scene from Baywatch Nights with Lisa and David Hasselhoff.  Lisa tells Andy to keep searching because there are much worse scenes than that.

Poll Question:  Which Beverly Hills housewife would you want as a boss?

Andy shows Amy Phillip’s debut impersonation of Lisa Vanderpump giving out RHOBH New Years Resolutions.  As usual, it is spot on.  Take a look:
http://www.bravotv.com/watch-what-happens-live/season-9/videos/rhobh-resolutions

Lisa has not talked with Adrienne since her divorce.  They’ve seen each other at events and are civil to each other.  Lisa says at some point diplomacy becomes a lie.

During the commercial, Lisa lets Giggy lick on a Vodka Tonic ice cube.  Any asks Cesar what he thinks about it.  Cesar says he’s learning a lot and doesn’t make a big deal about it.  Lisa says Giggy has recently started humping/shagging a pillow and he’s so cute in his pink pjs doing it.  Cesar says its natural and his dog Stella does it to him because she’s attracted to him.

Andy asks Lisa if there is any blow going on around SUR.  She says of course not while Ken (in the audience) is laughing hysterically.

Lisa explains her difficult position during Kyle’s dinner party.  She says what Brandi did was wrong, but it wasn’t any of Faye’s business.  However, she really didn’t want to fight with pit bull Faye.  Looking back she probably could have said more.

They play a game where they show pictures of dogs and Cesar and Lisa must guess, by the looks on the dogs’ faces, if they are humping or showing off doggy fashions.  It’s a cute fun game.  The game ends in a tie.

Andy asks if there is a drug testing policy for the employees at SUR and Lisa tells him yes, if they don’t have any, they give them some.  JUST JOKING, says Lisa!

Mazel is Lady Edith from Downton Abbey with google eyes. (I don’t think it’s funny).  Jackhole is LaScala Restaurant for making a big deal about Diana Ross seating herself at their restaurant.  Lisa says if Diana Ross came into her restaurant, she could sit on Lisa’s lap if she wanted.

Of course, Lisa wins the poll.

Shahs of Sunset – You Took an Ambien

Recap By: Ana

Car Karaoke 

shahs-of-sunset-season-2-gallery-episode-206-01This episode starts off with Asa picking up Reza in her Benz.  Can I just say how much I love Asa’s bracelets? I want them! The rest of her jewelry: not so much. She’s wearing these gigantic hoop earrings with the letter A, her expensive Santos Cartier sunglasses, and some gold chains that are not my style. The A/C in Reza’s car broken so Asa was kind enough to pick him up. Reza proceeds to tell us that no one in the group clicks like him and Asa and that they are the “King and Queen” of the group. (I though he would click like that with MJ, since they claim to be BFFs for 20+ yrs…Somehow I don’t like Reza and Asa very much this season.) Then Asa and Reza begin a karaoke jam session in the car and dancing to the music. All I could think of was what my parents yell at me when I take my hands of the wheel: TEN TEN! (Your hand should rest on the wheel like the clock hands do at 10:10.) So ten, ten ASA!!!

Asa talks about her music and how she wants to put on a live show/concert. She’s been thinking about it for a long time, but has never performed live. She wants to take it to the next level.  Somehow it turned from being a concert into being a music festival that will be the coming out of the Persian Pop Princess. Reza encourages her to go for it.  Asa also says that this is the year she will make money off her music. Reza seconds that.

Three’s a Crowd

Is Debbie Gibson back in style? GG (much like nemesis Asa) is wearing a Debbie Gibson hat, Louboutin heels (a Bravolebrity MUST), light turquoise pants a disheveled white skull tee, Hermes black belt, bangles and her coin pendant. GG informs the viewer that its been a while since the fight and she thinks its time for her and Asa to get together so she can apologize.

shahs-of-sunset-season-2-gallery-episode-206-02MJ arrives in her best Jessica Simpson unflattering outfit: mom jeans and a 70s peasant polka dot blouse. Girl, you need a stylevention ASAP! MJ is a little shocked by how calm GG is being, to the point where she asks her I everything is okay. MJ explains that she set up this meeting so Asa and GG could “hammer out their differences.”

They order drinks and appetizers at 1:05pm: MJ a shrimp cocktail and GG cheese fries, hummus with pita chips, and beef tacos. (Color me jealous at her metabolism!) MJ says she hopes that they can get everything resolved between them before Asa arrives, and proceeds to tell her that she hoped her exclusion from the birthday party was a wake up call regarding her behavior. A surprisingly calm GG asks why she was excluded and not Asa. MJ is stunned by her questions and proceeds to explain to her that SHE (GG) was the one that got violent with Asa and had she ever thought that Asa might not feel physically safe around her? MJ says that if she was in Asa’s shoes, she would never want to be in a room with someone who was physically violent with her ever again. It seems to sink-in with GG and she acknowledges that she may need to seek help for her anger management. She tells MJ that she respects her decision and will be calling her therapist later. Kuddos to GG for being an adult in this situation (for now at least)!!!  They both toast to break-throughs and therapy!

GG tells MJ that all she wants to do in Cabo is chillax, swim and have fun. She thinks the Cabo trip will be a great way to repair broken friendships. GG wants to apologize to Asa for becoming physically violent (not for defending her man Omid). By 1:32, Asa has not shown up – so MJ begins texting/calling Asa. Its 2:16 and still no sign of Asa, then MJ receives a text from Asa that says the following: “We can talk later Azizam. But I def have put enough energy into my friendship with GG.  In my book,  you have to give love & respect to receive it. She doesn’t deserve neither from me. Hit me when ur in ur car.”

MJ informs GG that Asa will not be coming. (Personally this was really rude of Asa, couldn’t she have told them an hour beforehand?) MJ tries to call Asa but her call goes straight to voicemail. MJ leaves a message telling Asa that she wishes she‘d told her she wasn’t coming and that she would’ve given GG a chance- however, she can’t convince her voicemail to change her mind for her. GG says that the more she gets pushed out, the less of an opportunity she’s getting to make things right. Honestly, how many opportunities do you need GG? Adult life works differently. MJ says she’s very angry because she knows how much GG wanted to make things right. MJ is annoyed so she needs to get drunk.

You’re In or We’re Out

At King Reza’s condo, he has an amazing breakfast spread! Yumm… Queen Asa arrives first wearing a tribal print super tight red and black dress. Reza explains that Mike invited everyone to Cabo: everyone means including GG. However Reza thinks that showing up and going on the trip with GG “means supporting and condoning GG’s appalling behavior.”  Queen Asa agrees and says that this is where they draw the line with GG. Wow, the King and Queen have a lot of pull with Bravo since it seems that they will not be forced to film with GG, like every other show!

Mike arrives next and explains that Reza called them for a “family meeting.” MJ arrives next. They all sit down and drink mimosas. Reza explains that he is really stressed out about the prospect of GG coming to Mexico. He explains (more like gives an ultimatum) that Asa and him aren’t going to Mexico if GG comes. Asa says that she’s shocked Mike invited her. Mike and MJ seemed shocked that they are going down this route- cutting GG off completely. MJ says she’s pissed Asa didn’t show up to the dinner where GG was going to apologize, mainly because they all need to embrace and help GG get the help she needs.

The King and Queen of Shahs then issue really issue the ultimatum: either they go or GG goes to Mexico- can’t have both. Mike caves in and agrees to un-invite GG – they toast to un-inviting GG (except MJ). Mj puts it best in her talking head: “Who died and made Asa and Reza mom and dad.” Mike explains that he had to sacrifice one for the betterment of the group.

shahs-of-sunset-season-2-gallery-episode-206-04Then Mike states who is going: all those present, Sammi and Lilly. MJ is not happy with the Lilly invite. Pappa/King Reza tells her to get over it and get used to it because Lilly is coming on the trip. MJ can get over it but he can’t? If the shoe was on the other foot, I have a feeling it wouldn’t be the same.

Mike calls GG to uninvited her, GG sounds pissed/sad (I would be).  She says she tried to make amends and says shouldn’t her friends try to help her instead of excluding her from everything? GG is not buying Mike’s kool aid so she hangs up telling them she’s not angry but disappointed.

Family Dining

GG and her dad, Mahmoud, are going out to lunch and are waiting for GG’s sister, Leila, to meet up. Since she’s not going to Cabo, GG decides to take over complete control of her extension line’s launch party. She can do it all on her own y’all.  Apparently, Leila owes GG an apology (even though GG clearly threatened to cut her face while she was 9 mos pregnant)?!?!? Now we know where GG gets her delusions from- her dad! He seems to think that Leila owes GG an apology!

Leila arrives and to my shock and surprise apologizes to GG! Blames “her behavior” on her pregnancy hormones, apparently she gave birth three days after that fight. Their dad says that they can argue but not damage or attack each other’s character (but threats of violence and ok apparently) – they uplift each other. GG feels bad that her dad is always the middleman between her and her sister’s fights.

Mahmoud asks if everything for the launch party is set. GG says she is not allowed to be a part of everything and that part of her job description is to throw parties. Leila looks at her with annoyance and explains that she is basically the face of the company and that she and Michelle have been working on for a year. Leila explains to her dad that it’s a company launch part not a GG party. Leila is confused about GG’s sudden interest in doing the party- and being involved in the company. (We know sadly its because of the un-invite from Cabo.) GG sells it as it’s time for her to get involved and is delusional that she has a major say in the company.  Her sister says she doesn’t and that she’s being childish. Leila is skeptical, given her sister’s track record. Eventually Leila gives in to GG’s tantrum and GG will throw the launch party! GG says she’ll prove Leila’s doubts wrong.

Let’s Party Aztec Style

shahs-of-sunset-season-2-gallery-episode-206-06Everyone is packing and excited. Mike and MJ just throw stuff into a bag while Lilly carefully ziplocks all her stuff neatly into her bag. Lilly informs us that she’s just not a Mexico kind of girl.

Once they arrive in Cabo they get onto a Mercedes Benz Party Bus and start poppin’ bottles. Lilly is concerned about her bags?! (I would like to point out that Asa is wearing huge beats headphone DJ style. Its distracting- one would think she’d tuck them away like a lady and not wear ‘em like a 13-year-old boy…but I digress. Lilly does not like alcohol because “it tastes like gasoline, it makes you fat and it makes you lose control.” True, I wish I felt that way about alcohol- it would save me SO MANY CALORIES! Bravo editing awesomely places a strategic shot of MJ being annoyed. Sammi says that he’ll go nuts and Lilly says that he should go nuts then. MJ says in her talking head that Lilly’s stick is so far up her ass it’s a contagious constipation. Reza says Sammi just wants to get in Lilly’s pants because and wants to hit that. Talk turns to Sammi’s libido and then we learn a new Farsi term: doodool tala (pronounced doo doo talaub). It literally means Golden Penis. We also learn that it’s a term most Persian moms like to give to their sons. TMI Reza says white people might find this weird, but then again they find it weird that white people think its normal to kick your kid out at 18. I’m not Persian, but most Latinos think its weird too.

Also, MJ has a picture of Sammi’s Penis- that she shows everyone. For once, I can relate to Lilly in her confusion and repulsion, but out of curiosity would’ve taken a peek.

shahs-of-sunset-season-2-gallery-episode-206-11shahs-of-sunset-season-2-gallery-episode-206-12They arrive to the hotel safely- but Lilly is concerned about her Louis Vuitton bags. Mike again assures her she’ll get them soon and that they are ok. The hotel is awesome with amazing views! They all decide to go to the pool and toast to an amazing trip. Its hilarious to see the difference in unpacking between MJ and Lilly. Lilly is neat and MJ is a hot mess! Lilly goes to Queen Asa’s room (where King Reza is) and gifts her a bikini from her swingerie line. It was very nice of Lilly.  Lilly then goes to MJ’s room and gifts her a cover-up. Kindda mean and obvious hint huh? Lilly says the that MJ wears unflattering clothes and needs some fashion guidance (agreed but doesn’t have to be so blunt about it) MJ is actually very nice, asks for Lilly’s advice on which suit to wear. Lilly advises on her wearing the red bathing suit.  She wears the cover up.

Party Planning is a Bitch

GG and Omid are meeting with the Manager of Special Events for the venue where she’ll be hosting the party.  Her name is Khrysta. GG presents Omid as her future ex-husband (something tells me this will be true- can you imagine GG’s crazy ass as an ex-wife? Amazing TV) GG les us know that Omid is a very special person in her life as a friend and as more than a friend. He has her back no matter what. The venue looks great! GG wants floating trays- Khrysta says they have waiters with appetizer trays available. Khrysta also says that they can make a special drink with her name – the GG. This makes GG really excited and ready to prove that she’s more than just the face of the company! GG and Omid are sold on the venue. Good Choice.

…Meanwhile back in Mexico

Everyone’s at the pool at the Nikki Beach Club, which Reza says has an Orange County hot mess vibe- minus the hot and quadruple the mess. Asa toasts to brown people. Sammi asks if she said round people or brown people. Asa says both and they all toast.

shahs-of-sunset-season-2-gallery-episode-206-19 shahs-of-sunset-season-2-gallery-episode-206-24Lilly has been to Nikki Beach in the South of France, & this Nikki Beach does not do it justice AT ALL. Lilly states that there is not a single attractive person at the pool. MJ arrives late (as usual) wearing the cover-up Lilly gave her. Lilly is wearing a leopard print bikini top that makes her boobs look like two gigantic soccer balls…she’s a mini Big Ang from Mobwives (but prettier).  Per Mike- white people are nuts for wearing speedos and fuzzy hats(?). Everyone seems to be having fun…except Lilly.  Mike is getting HAMMERED, really hammered. MJ is being fun MJ so Reza loves her again. Mike is staring at Lilly’s boobs….LOL and Lilly looks like she’d rather be anywhere else.

Next we are treated to a scene where Reza is manhandling MJ’s boobs because they hang too low.  This stops when Mike walks in and explains to Reza that it’s how real boobies hang- however he’s doubtful MJ’s bathing suit will be able to hold the girls in for much longer. Reza suggests they use duct tape- to hold them together.

shahs-of-sunset-season-2-gallery-episode-206-27Its night time and a mandatory Bravo dinner is in place. They are all ready and MJ is ready on time, You read right- ON TIME! I love MJ’s skirt btw- it’s a tribal black and silver sequin skirt. Fab! Since Mike hasn’t shown and they haven’t heard from him, they all decide to go to his room. Mike is napping and seems really lost when they all wake him up screaming and hollerin’ but he’s still drunk. I have to address Asa’s dancing with the stars outfit in her talking head: Debbie Gibson hat, 80’s red sequin madness. Mike goes to the bathroom, MJ and Asa decide to follow him into the bathroom since he keeps moaning. They see his doodool tala and let’s just say (from MJ’s expert opinion) that Reza and Sammi ain’t got nothing on Mike. I’ll leave it at that.

They all are at dinner and MJ begins to tell Asa that she’s actually attended her first therapy session on her birthday and that it was cathartic for her. She tells the group about her parents’ fight that they had over the affair. Lilly asks who had the affair and MJ responds that her mother. Lilly makes a toast to MJ, that this is the type of conversations she hopes to have more of with her. Reza wants MJ to change topic because it feels like death. MJ says it is not everyday that she has therapy, nor that she sits at a table with friends and acquaintances (looking at Lilly). This pissed Lilly off- I don’t see why since it’s the truth, a little rude but they are just acquaintances. Lilly says it doesn’t bother her. Asa giggles with Lilly- MJ is not amused that they are shutting her out when she is being emotionally raw with them. I though that as a friend Asa would be kinder given she knows MJ’s history. Lily tells her to stop the BS about her being a stranger, that she simply doesn’t like her. Sammi jumps in and is the voice of reason explaining to Lilly that she doesn’t really know MJ. I thought for all the loyalty talk BS, Reza would have stood up a little for MJ and diffused the situation.

Lilly goes on about how it was a backhanded comment. Reza then chimes in and says he adores MJ and loves Lilly- that he wants them all to get along without saying anything negative about each other. MJ then asks Reza and Asa if she’s ever called them and asked them a question about who is Lilly. **bull** Asa says MJ has called Lilly a chia pet. (More like a Persian Dolly Parton to me) Lilly is not amused and nor is MJ. MJ says Asa is lying right now and being shady. Reza says she did call Lilly a chia pet and that her wig walks into a room an hour before she does. MJ says that she never said that to Asa- she said that to Reza. I would be so PISSED and feel betrayed if I found out that my so-called BFF is reporting stuff back to a “new” friend…I can empathize with MJ- even though it was a funny mean girl comment. Reza, Lilly and Asa don’t see how that makes a difference.

MJ tells Asa to stay the fuck out of it and not to pretend she actually had a conversation with her about Lilly. Asa is playing the dumb card that is just infuriating MJ. I guess Asa’s new role is as resident Pot-stirring Queen- its unbecoming. Asa and Reza are pretending like MJ is insane (her logic is a little flawed) and that she’s being a bitch over nothing. Then Asa accuses MJ of being drunk and popping pills. MJ is FURIOUS at this accusation; I would be too. MJ swears on her father’s life that she doesn’t pop any pills. Asa chimes in to say she told her she had an Ambien earlier that morning. MJ gets up, calls Asa a bitch and walks away. MJ tells Asa that just like GG can’t apologize, she can’t apologize. #truth Asa continues to play stupid and doesn’t understand why MJ thinks her accusation about being a pill popper should make her mad. Frankly, I am disliking Asa and Reza more and more as the season progresses.

shahs-of-sunset-season-2-gallery-episode-206-30MJ from the bushes yells at Asa that bad things happen to people who talk shit. Reza joins in on the MJ bashing and sides with Asa. MJ is pissed and insults Asa. Lilly is amazed at Asa’s composure – while I was amazed at her shitty behavior. MJ calls Reza over, he says if she puts her drink aside she’ll come. She says okay. MJ tells Reza that if he stays at that table, he’s siding against her. Reza says that she attacked him and Asa instead of saying what she had to say to Lilly. I am confused by his reasoning. Reza says his heart is broken and he’s seeing his friend unravel. Does he know something we don’t? It just seems he prefers Asa and Lilly in every situation over MJ, and there is only so much MJ put up with. Reza turns the table and then threatens MJ that if she has any love for him she’ll come back to the table. MJ tells Reza that she did take an Ambien before she got on the plane to sleep, but she’s no pill popper. I though that was a strong accusation, given it can affect her reputation as a realtor. Asa get u and walks over to them and MJ is not having any of it.

Apparently the MJ is a pill popper they are trying to make it into a storyline….we’ll see next week!

PS- sorry for the lack of fashion descriptions in this recap, too much drama to keep up with!

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. MJs done time? Hmm. I didn’t watch VR but I’m looking forward to your blog Jen. Have a great day.

    • TexasTart says:

      Good Morning! Can’t wait to read all the recaps and I was so curious who would blog VR, we gave it a rough time last night on the blog, Well off to work, fun will have to wait! Y’all have a great day! 🙂

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Hi Powell!! MJ did the crime, and sounds like she did the time!!! Alexia’s son (the homeless people abuser) could maybe use some of that… a month of REAL TIME.

      BB – great recap – I didn’t get to watch BH because of the BCS Championship Game. But I love this… “married lover/lawyer”. aka MLL – new nickname. Married Lover/Lawyer.

      • chismosa says:

        Lainey, don’t hate me, but i feel for MJ- i mean look at the mother she grew up with, which in many ways may have been even worse than someone like Bethenny’s mother- because Bethenny got to go to a high end boarding school in Miami, had a huge sweet 16 on the water here in Long Island, etc….i.e. Bethenny grew up and got away from her mom, in MJ’s culture, she can/ could not.

        Poor MJ— i still feel for her. I don’t like her sticking up for GG so much- (i think it’s a psychological thing, i think GG reminds MJ of her mom for some reason)

        i know she’s coming across a drunken mess these days but i don’t trust Bravo’s editing and THEY ARE ON VACATION. But whatever…. we’ll see what happens.

        • Laineylainey says:

          Oh, I do not hate you chismosita! Never! My point was that Mj did her time. I can move on. Alexia’s son…will he do time for what he did? Alexia never mentioned the man that her son assaulted. I feel for MJ, too. Her mother is cruel and cold. Shiver!

          • chismosa says:

            Yeah Alexia’s son— was he the same age MJ was at her ‘criminal’ time? ha ha, omg so sad. Of course he should pay for it and i agree jailtime sounds perfect. MJ seems to have (sort of) straightened out her life, i mean she lives a productive life, working and stuff, so ……

            I agree, just do your time, and they are very very young when all this happened. Who knows…..

            i still like Alexia (sorry, ha ha)

  2. Beckygrey says:

    I wasn’t trilled with VR. Maybe because I’m older and all the bed hopping is boring. Don’t like that Shena is being rewarded for lack of character and that Stassi is only there because she’s friends with Pandora.

    • Contessa says:

      I’m with you on VR as well. Can we say empty headed and nasty and full of themselves??? The only good thing about Shena was that she and Brandi put it all out there about what a horrific cheater EC really was – are you listening Leann?

      I am down to watching the HW shows, and the decorating shows, everything else is junk as far as I am concerned. I do watch Andy if there is a guest I particularly like. But this VR is not my cup of tea and I am definitely a Lisa fan.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        I taped it and haven’t had a chance to watch it, yet.

      • Powell says:

        Contessa LeAnn was totally watching. She DVRd it, taped it on DVD. She’s gonna watch it over & over again all the while saying to herself “Eddie would never treat me that way. He didn’t love them. He loves me”.

  3. AZGirl says:

    Good morning everyone! Well last night was brutal. Alabama came to win and they did. I went from watching the biggest losers on ESPN (ND) to Biggest Losers on NBC to Vanderpump Rules which was a total bust.
    Great blog this morning. Lots of stuff to read. Thank you NMD, BB, Ana and Jen for your recaps.
    Heading to the recipe page to post chili recipe.
    BBL

  4. ItzAngieDuh says:

    Good morning everyone. Not liking Staddi right off the bat. Is Yolanda too good to film with all the other ladies? Not at all shocked that Camille & Traylor were rude to Marisa. Lisa was a hoot on WWHL. Just wanted to chime in. Happy Tuesday everybody!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      hi ItzAngieDuh!!! I taped Bravo last night as I was watching the football game, but it looks like I have a lot to watch!!!

    • Powell says:

      Angie I haven’t watched VR yet. Aren’t most of them trying to be Hollywood actors? Maybe that’s what they’re doing. Remember not of this is real reality as we’ve really learned even more last season on NJ. 🙂

  5. AZGirl says:

    Chili recipe is posted.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      thanks AZGirl!!! I hadn’t said anything, yet. But I’m looking forward to trying a new recipe for Chili. We love chili at my house. Plus, it’s always a hit at worktime potlucks.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I just read it…I know why it’s so good now…the first ingredient is pork. The rest of the recipe sounds exactly the way I make chili… sans the pork. My husband won’t eat pork (booooo!), but I can imagine that it makes the chili extra yummy!!!

      • AZGirl says:

        A lot of my friends substitute the pork with lean ground beef. The ground pork I have been getting at the store is very lean. Leaner then the ground round I use.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Oh, don’t get me wrong…I love pork. My husband is the one who won’t eat it. This could be why, when we go out, I’m searching the menu for a good pork dish. Or a bLt really hits the spot!!!

  6. rabblerouser2010R says:

    Good morning everyone.
    It was nice to see BJ back after what seemed like ages.

    I didn’t really appreciate Bravo tricking my dvr into recording VR (the same way they tricked it into recording that stupid Manzothon). Just that scene in BH when Sheena was walking though the kitchen irritated me with how contrived the whole thing is.

    I love Lisa, but in a 3 minute chance I gave that show makes me not want to eat at SUR. The staff all seem like d-bags and slags and I certainly don’t want some grease ball who banged the waitress in the bathroom making my drink (cause now I know where is hands have been ewww). Not to mention, one chlamydia out break and everyone would be calling in sick…no thanks.

    • Contessa says:

      Rabble, now I realized why I was a bit skeeved out last night….yuck. You are so right about all the possible infections. Lisa should have given this much more thought, and hopefully she takes charge of these plastic disgusting people who she calls staff? They wouldn’t last with me for a minute.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      haha! good point, stay away from the clams!!

    • T-Rex says:

      RR HA! If you only knew all the debaucherous things that go down in some pretty high falootin restaraunts out there you wouldn’t eat at a lot of them. You wouldn’t eat at some bars and a lot of other restaurants either. Having worked as a bartender in a bar I will say that pretty much every place you could think to have sex, well had been used where I worked(rock and roll club) including bar stools, bar tops, stock room, bathroom, we had a “stage room” for the “talent” and that place was always used for sex. When you work in that industry you become a vampire and you hang out with other vampires at after hours places because you need to wind down from your job and nothing else is open. I can tell you from listening to stories of other folks in what we refer to as the “service” industry there were a lot of places in some nice establishments that were being used for the service to be “serviced”. It’s the little dark secret of that world.

      • This is so true T-Rex. I did long stints of bartending and waitressing in my youth as second jobs until I hit my “career” and ya’ll don’t want to know what goes on behind the scenes in restaurants….and the upscale ones are worse. The service industry has many connotations!

    • Pghemtchick says:

      Spot on rabble! I couldnt get over them sampling drinks. While I did enjoy the show, dirty slits kept coming to mind. Kristin commented she needed to wash her work dress it was gross, then 2 seconds later is wearing it. Editing or really really gross hygiene? Like I want to see a waiter/waitress hot or not (not IMO) severing me any food in a dirty or smelly uniform. Ugh. Might as well just not bathe.

      • T-Rex says:

        Okay confession here, but I was shacked up with one of the bands and worked in the same outfit for 2 days, yeppers I was young and dumb and didn’t care back then, I was all of 19 and thrilled to be a groupie for a couple of days, well I was a groupie a lot back then, :X

        • Laineylainey says:

          You should write a book.

          • T-Rex says:

            No way not ever, got too much dirt on some folks and they got dirt on me, I have no interest in others reading about my sordid but extremely fun couple of years before I grew up and realized this was not a good lifestyle to live

            • LaineyLainey says:

              Make it a work of fiction…historical fiction? LOL Change the names and use a pen name.

  7. T-Rex says:

    Didn’t get to VR, fell asleep. But the whole fake written shakazulu-psychic crap was ludicrous, seriously I know the producers were trying to drum up footage for ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterLypsMcgee that didn’t entail her being drunk out of her mind, and this was filmed after they got her a “handler” to pull alcohol out of her hands but this was just stupid. Oh and this “worship” center is associated with that fake book The Secret, which turned out to be the biggest bunch of hooey, sort of the petrock for the 90’s(for you youngsters in the 1970’s a guy put a rock in a box and sold them and people actually bought them for some reason, showing people are stupid), anywhoo. Oh and I bet the lyinglosercheatinglawyer’s family was just pleased as punch to put that cheating timeline together, hope lyinglosercheatinglawyer’s wife has a damn good attorney and takes him to the cleaners. VileKyleMeanGirl proved yet again that she does deserve her title as the ResidentPresident of the MeanGirlclub, and yeah, VileKyleMeanGirl, re-write history in your TH about how much you are friends with Brandi,(liar liar pants on fire), because friends always call in another friend to take you “down” and bring you to tears, because that’s what friends are for! VileKyle we get it, you see the audience is seeing your true colors and you are trying to save face, nope no one is buying it. EPIC FAIL Oh and yes you don’t know Kim any longer, because Kim is sober and Kim is getting on with her life, reconnecting with her true family, and can’t be bullied(yes I mean this word), and badgered by VileKyleMeanGirl any longer. WOOT WOOT to Kim for growing up and moving on in her Sober life with people who truly care about here. HoofMaloof and the Dr., yeah HoofMaloof these scenes certainly prove who has the balls in this family and it ain’t the good Dr. so this pretty much seals the deal that if anyone would have been abused in this relationship it would not have been the HoofMaloof. Yolanda, uhm kinda boring but we shall see what else we see from her. Marissa, you go GIRL giving it right back to VileKyleMeanGirl, I see great things in her future on the show, I think there may be a falling out between these two later on, and I hope so. Could be the express reason that VileKyleMeanGirl has been uber-lobbying Bravo to bring in some of her “friends” and we all know FayeKR is now off that plan for Bravo, she won’t be a HW.

    • TexasTart says:

      Part of T-Rex words are missing on my screen, appeared and disappeared, this happened earlier….do I have a ghost in my monitor playing tricks? Is this a sign I should be doing my job and not playing on the blog? 😯

    • melthehound says:

      I remember the commercials for the Pet Rock 😆

      • T-Rex says:

        MTH, My aunt(the dumb one) actually bought us them one year. Uhm my rock collection, free, that I picked up on our many camping trips across the country was more interesting than that thing. I actually have a piece of the Crazy Horse monument from back then.

        • melthehound says:

          Every once in awhile I see a pet rock at a garage sale with a ridiculous price on it. I suspect that many who bought them were doing so for the novelty of it. Very cool that you have a collection from your trips 😀

          • LaineyLainey says:

            sort of reminds me in my investment in Beanie Babies…if the hype had been real, I’d be a millionaire.

            • LaineyLainey says:

              *of my investment

            • melthehound says:

              Only if they all had their original tags 😉

              People across the street from my parents had thousands invested in those things. Then it seems people said, WTF is all the hype about? Really? And the market was gone, just like that. Hopefully Lainey you didn’t bet your life savings on them like these people did.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                oh, no nothing like that..my two kids collected them and actually played with them!! 🙂 I do have a couple of large bins filled with them. They are cute and saving them for their own kids’ nurseries. But as a joke, we would say after purchasing one, “we’re going to be rich! RICH! I TELL YA!!” and then we’d all giggle.

                • melthehound says:

                  😆 The people I’m talking about took out a mortgage on a PAID FOR house to buy stuff like that. I remember some of the ridiculous prices people were paying for those things. Especially if it was ‘Retired’. Retired With the Ty Tag.. mind you. Couldn’t forget about that tag 😉

      • trudie says:

        Every now and then when we are having money woes, my husband and I talk about coming up with something like the Pet Rock to sell to gullible consumers.

  8. Just Wondering In Jersey says:

    Was I seeing things or did Yolanda sit on the counter to eat her dinner? Couldn’t they hock one of the awards and buy another stool?

    • TexasTart says:

      JWJ, that was a cute scene in the show, Yolanda with her family for dinner, but you are correct! Not only did she sit on the counter (kitchen island) but she put her feet in the sink to be more comfortable! 😀

      • Just Wondering In Jersey says:

        Texas I missed that. OMG. LOL. I still like her but I would hesitate to eat there.

    • I Need A Life! says:

      I thought the same thing, Jersey. But this is where I started to fade away from Bravo..Beverly Hills…Lisa. After listening to the Virtues of Yolanda, I asked myself, “What are you doing?” I stopped caring at that moment. Yes, it’s important to have dinner as a family, Yolanda. Are you there with them every night or just when the cameras show up. Horses are really expensive, dear. Pity. I don’t care. Taylor had to give up her $250,000 ring. It would leave a lump in my throat as well. But I’ve known women who had to sell their rings worth less than a fraction of that just to pay their next month’s mortgage. Brandi and her cheatin’ husband. Enough. Enough. Lisa’s show isn’t much fun. I turned it off after I saw a guy shaving his forehead.

    • Artistang says:

      Yes I did see that and her feet were in the sink..I think that was unsanitary since the sink should only be used for cleaning food..and why not sit in they’re beautiful dining room..since dinner is so important to her to catch up..I get being informal but that just looked too wierd….

  9. TexasTart says:

    I love Queen Lisa but it’s my opinion that Bravo didn’t not do justice for the bulk of her fan base in the creation of Vanderpump Rules. Other housewife spin-offs have been about the person, but not this one and it’s not for me! I’ll follow recaps and I appreciate Jen for blogging for Lynn’s Place! 😀

    • TexasTart says:

      Uh oh, I don’t know what happened to all the words….
      As I was saying 😉 Bravo not do justice for the bulk of Lisa’s fans, in my opinion. Spin-offs are typically done because a person is a stand-out from an ensemble and the show is about that person. Vanderpump Rules seems to be about the lives of the employees at Sur and I do not find any of them interesting in the first go. It’s not for me, but I appreciate Jen blogging it for us!!!

      • I agree Texas-Tart…….when I first heard of this spin-off I was excited because I want to see more of Lisa & Ken’s fab life…maybe how they came to be in restaurant biz and manage them, etc….I did NOT want to see her staff slobber all over each other.

        I think Bravo thinks they will pick up a younger audience with this show, but not sure that’s going to work for them, or if it will do Lisa any good. 😉

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Bravo has never thought too highly of their viewers (us). But it’s still Disappointing, but not surprising, if indeed the target audience is young…that they would think so little of the younger generation. Give them a little credit, Bravo. I haven’t even seen VRules, but it sounds like it’s all about “hooking up” – – -Bravo, young people have brains, too.

          • True that, Lainey! It makes you wonder what kind of brains Bravo peeps have that makes them underestimate their audience. I personally think this: for a while it was fun to watch cray cray and flipping tables. BUT, Bravo started taking all of that to a whole other level and “over-producing & scripting” it, and it did not take long for we viewers to say, whoa, enough, this is not what we want to see on a regular basis.

            Bravo still has not caught up to that! 😛

    • Cartwheels says:

      I agree Texas. I wanted to see Lisa being fabulous with her guests in this very expensive restaurant, the A celebrities, the food showcased, instead of highlighting the front of the house, they gave us all the drama from the back of the house.

      I feel a little bit cheated on this first episode, but as usual will watch a couple more and see if this changes.

      • TexasTart says:

        Yes, Cartwheels, that would be so cool if we could see Lisa being fabulous with her guests and maybe they will give some tidbits to that later.

        I see my “words” reappeared. I feel like a fool retyping that, it appears I should have hit reload before assuming it was missing!

  10. plainviewsue says:

    Great recap of RHOBH! And yes, I did see that smirk on Kyle’s face at the dinner.

    I truly hate Kyle more and more with each episode. I had hoped that she would of said to Faye that it was wrong of her to attack Brandi. As the hostess of a party, you are there for ALL of your guests. But once she said to her that she wasn’t upset with her, Kyle went down another 10 points in my book.

    You guys are gonna think I am nuts, but I am not hating Taylor as much as everyone else. While I wasn’t happy with her behavior at the beginning of the season, she is not annoying me as much. Go figure.

    The scenes with Brandi & Shena (sp) were so raw. My eyes were brimming with tears. Brandi, whether you like her or not, is the best addition to any HW show in a long time IMO. She is the real deal. My heart broke for her at Kyle’s dinner as well. She has become so popular; Leann must be dying!

    And her one liners are getting as good as Bethenny’s were. Referring to Faye as the chick with the dick!!!! Priceless!!!!!

    I watched VR, and don’t think I will watch again. I am a huge fan of Lisa’s, and I think if I watch that show, it will diminish my love of her!!

    As for Bethenny & Jason, I just wish this could be done in private. None of us know what went on. I couldn’t imagine marrying someone a Type A as Bethenny and then have cameras following us during our marriage. Bethenny needs to remember that Jason is Brynn’s father & she knows from her own childhood how much she wanted a father.

    • T-Rex says:

      PVS don’t say it NOOoooooooooooooooo you can’t be falling for the ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterLypsMcgee?????? She is still a lying loser and she is schtooping another woman’s husband on national TV and playin the “we are only friends card”, well friends who like to have sex I guess. Don’t fall for it! Look up until the day those fake bags were outed as fakes she was professing how she was “losing” her precious expensive bags, knowing they were fake! She settled because she HAD to settle and the folks she cheated only got the assets she had, it didn’t come close to what she and Russell stole from them. But like I do in my job I weight the costs of proceeding with litigation against taking the money they have and running. I can assure you they got some of that Bravo money as well, that’s why she was living at VileKyle’s for so long she truly couldn’t afford anything and with her credit rating being horrible no one is going to rent to her. I am sure if she is living on her own the LyingCheatingLoserLawyer has placed this in his name, not hers

      Great point on Bethenny, Sue. Jason is a good father. I don’t think Bethenny’s talk show will get off the ground because of this. And if it does, I doubt it will be on for long. I enjoy Wendy Williams because she’s genuinely grateful for everything she’s been handed in life. Here Bethenny gets EVERYTHING and hands it back. By moving to LosAngeles she cheats her daughter out of life with her father. Very selfish woman. We all see it.

      • Artistang says:

        AND why does she want child support or the other things she listed? she has sooo much money..I would have more kudos for her if she walked away clean…

        • PJ says:

          You know both parents are responsible to support their child not just one, and according to the article I read Jason also has a lot of money.

          • Stephiebar says:

            I think its good she asked for healthcare & child support, having two parents being able to afford looking after Bryn is good! I think it is so that when Bryn is older she doesn’t feel that daddy doesn’t love her as much – kids here things and she’d be able to google it with the coverage.

            • PJ says:

              I just want to know who would not ask for those things when filing for divorce? These things are rights of the child and both parents are responsible to support their child, why should Jason walk away from his responsibility just because Bethenny has money. In an article I read it was stated that Jason had made quite a lot of money in real estate. I am amazed that anyone would criticize Bethenny for expecting her child’s father to contribute to his daughter’s support, especially considering that the very people doing the criticizing would expect nothing less for their own children. The things asked for in the divorce filing are all standard and all these things will be negotiated and settled before the divorce is final. As for some saying that Bethenny wants primary custody so she can move Bryn to California, I don’t think it’s that easy to move a child to a different state from where the other parent lives. So much speculation, we really have no idea who is responsible for this stare of affairs in their marriage.

              • Cartwheels says:

                I agree with this post 100%.
                There is no way that as a mother I wouldn’t request or at least try to get primary custody of my only daughter, just no way.
                With primary custody comes medical insurance and life insurance which most likely Jason already has for Bryn.
                Medical insurance on her and life insurance on her are simply filler that would allow room for negotiation.

      • shamrockblonde says:

        I like Bethenny – and I like Jason – was hoping that he would balance her out, give her that security she was denied growing up – I’m sorry this is being done publicly, but such is the price of fame -as for what is truly going on, we don’t know at all and probably never will no matter what any publication writes – the only true thing we know is that Brynn will also have to pay the price of her parents’ fame –

        • Sus says:

          You have it right that Bryn is the one that is going to pay for all this crap.

          It’s fascinating to me that people with money will pay lawyers to fight about who pays what. Why can’t it be 50/50? Why can’t you be grown up enough to work out who will pay what?

          My opinion from watching Bethenny on the Apprentice, RHONY and her show, she’s an extremely selfish person. She got what she wanted from Jason, which was sperm, and now she wants him to disappear so she can have Bryn all to herself. She should have grown some balls and got a sperm donor instead of dragging a man into it when she didn’t want to compromise. You want to be selfish – OWN IT.

          She’s deluding herself if she thinks Jason is going to lay down and just let her send Bryn to him a weekend a month and 2 weeks in the summer.

          I have zero interest in her talk show. There’s nothing she can say that makes me want to watch it.

          • Cartwheels says:

            “Why can’t it be 50/50?”

            That is the million dollar question, I have the huntch that this is one of those things that we will never know. Bethenny was very open to split custody but then asked for primary custody. I wonder if Jason’s lawyers pushed the issue of annulling the prenup as part a=fo their proposal and if that had any bearing on the change of conversation.

            I am fairly sure that it will end up being 50-50 anyway but Bethenny is entitled in her proposal to request all her lawyer deems fair and legal.

            WORD Sus

          • I Need A Life! says:

            You have to love your child more than you love being a star in LA and more than you hate your soon to be ex spouse. His mother is a loving grandmother. His dad is a loving grandfather. I would love to see him turn the table and fight for primary custody if she can’t do 50/50.

            • Cartwheels says:

              Bethenny is no going to LA, she is staying in NYC.
              Jason parents are loving grandparents and will probably use Jason’s time with Bryn to visit her and pampered her. If and that is a big if Bethenny gets primary custody, it doesn’t mean that Jason never sees her daughter anymore.

              • chismosa says:

                But i bet Cartwheels, her DREAM would have been to ditch Jason big time and move to LA. She didn’t want to stay in NY. (i agree she got what she needed, sperm from a good looking guy to get her ‘blue eyed’ child- she said that she hoped the baby would look like him. Boy did she luck out) Look at allllllllllllllllll that work on that apartment (that she involved Jason in so much, um NOT). My gut always told me she honestly always wanted to be on the west coast.

                I love that she is locked into east coast because of Jason. She had to fight ‘tooth and nail’ – that is what one article said- to stay in NY to produce the show. In the old Wendy Williams studio. It was a very hard sell to do.
                Maybe this will all cause problems with her show for next year.

                Hence, getting on Ellen tomorrow STAT to do damage control. Her people, the production companies, the stations green-lighting her show want to see what the public’s perception is of her right now and if it will affect ratings in very tough daytime tv-land. JMHO

                • Cartwheels says:

                  chismosa do you think if that all she wanted was his sperm she could have done it the easy way?
                  She could have gone to a sperm bank and get a child with no prenup, no custody agreement, no visitation, a child just for herself. She could have chosen a father with blue eyes and blond hair all day long.
                  If all she wanted was a baby, she didn’t need to marry Jason for that, after all she was already pregnant, they could have lived together like many modern couples, get married after few years, etc. Bethenny is not very convencional when it comes to society standards as it is. Again less complications, no prenup, no post nup, liberty to go anywhere you want with no problem.
                  Bethenny wanted the fairy tale and thought Jason was prince charming, now she is in the real world where divorces are painful and negotiations are complicated.
                  She is not locked in NYC, she loves NYC, she wanted to go to LA to be able to get a talk show, now she has it, furthermore they had agreed to film in NYC, which makes it easier for both of them. Jason will have his trips to Hazelton and Bethenny will have her trips to LA. A lot of parents do it that way.
                  You are assuming that Bethenny wants to take Bryn away from Jason, I just don’t see it that way, primary custody doesn’t mean that one of the parents is eliminated of the child’s life. A father/mother can’t be removed from the child’s life unless there is a removal of parental rights and that is not what is at stake here.

                  • chismosa says:

                    I understand you are empathetic with her and I just don’t see it the same way. We’ll agree to disagree–
                    Like, sperm bank- Bethenny would never do that, not good for her image / the show WAS originally intended by Ellen’s production team to film in L.A., they had to really fight for east coast and for whom— not because Bethenny wanted to be in the East- but because her then husband did. All the written publications noted facts stating that the show was intended completely to film west coast and Bethenny would smile dreamily about that whenever asked.

                    I see lots of image-stuff around what she does, and the ‘prince’ and ‘fairy-tale’ doesn’t sit well with me because if anything, the Bethenny we all met in Season 1 of HWs never ever said her life was meant to be with a Prince or that her life would wind up that way.
                    I still think marriage was pushed upon because of Jason’s devout faith and i think Bethenny liked the idea of a grand big wedding + she was hormonally happy from the pregnancy + her dad just died so she thought she could re-do all that psychological stuff. I think she wasn’t careful, they were que sera sera- and she got pregnant. She got what she wanted from a short relationship she was having. For it to last long is not what is in her repertoire of relationships. That’s what i mean by she got what she needed.

                    I don’t get people like her who don’t get into therapy 20 years before they actually step foot in the door of the therapist’s office (with cameras so everyone in the world can SEE how damaged you are. Oh we feel for you!) so as to prevent these issues from happening later in their lives. I think that’s just plain stupid. She’s so open about the crappy life she had as a child, which i think she embellishes on, — then why weren’t you in therapy at 21? Hmmm? Truly ‘troubled’ people do do that in the real world.

                    Jason yes is culpable, i think he liked B as a challenge. But i dont see him as nasty as some people here have, i see him being in response to her nagging yapping/ passive-agressive masked as overtly-aggressive ways/ digs at him.
                    jmho!

      • chismosa says:

        i agree w you I Need a Life.
        She ALWAYS wanted to be in LA. That was crystal clear like 2 years ago

        • Sus says:

          I’ll probably be ducking after this but I can take it 🙂

          With what I said before about Bethenny being selfish, I include her refusal to make up with you-know-who. Yes, JZ was horrible to her. But, I think Bethenny was just as horrible to JZ. In my mind, their break-up wasn’t all JZ’s fault. Bethenny strikes me as someone that latches on to people and moves on when she’s gotten what she needed from them. First season of RHONY she was with Jason I and that completely inappropriate and uncomfortable conversation about moving in with him on camera. I think she was hoping Jason I wouldn’t embarrass her on camera like he did. Second season she was with Jill. Third season it was Jason II.

          She has the baby she desired so now she’s getting rid of Jason II.

          50/50 custody is what you do if both parents are capable of being parents. I’m very thankful Bryn has those grandparents.

          Of course, I could be completely full of it and Jason is a complete bastard because he was bringing women home at 12 am and kicking Bethenny out of their bed and then making Bethenny fix breakfast for them in the morning.

          • chismosa says:

            Sus if your last paragraph had a .00000001% chance of truth to it- Bethenny or a ‘source’ would be placing that in the news so as to take the blame off of her already. We know how she’s working the media now!

            I’m with you Sus- i despise and loathe Jill Z with all my being, but hey- Bethenny was FRIENDS with her, so what does that say about Bethenny exactly? You are who you hang out with.

            • Cartwheels says:

              Bethenny and Jill were not friends, they became friends in the show and that lasted about two season, I wouldn’t consider that a friend.
              BTW, going back to the media, do you really believe that somebody from Bethenny’s camp, who has her best interest at heart would tip TMZ or Radar online about her proposal? that has to be somebody who is in the other camp.
              The ptoposal is design as a draft to start negotiations and anything who has ever had to deal with custody issues knows that, Bethenny and her lawyer know that they are not going to get all they are asking for, the know that there has to be room for negotiation, yet the media (not Bethenny) has publish not even the proposal document but their interpretation of the proposal and now they are talking about her like this awful, greedy, selfish mother, but when you look at her proposal, all she has requested is standard, Any divorce/custody lawyer would advice her to do so, should she had requested less because she is a reality TV person? I don’t think so.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                Like when you go to the doctor and they tell you to do3 sets of 100 sit-ups a day, they know you’re probably only going to do 2 sets of 20. Or maybe it’s nothing like that.

                You start out asking for the world, knowing you’re not going to get the world. It’s a starting point.

              • chismosa says:

                i meant someone on her ‘team’ would plant the story that Jason was really a bastard. It would be out there already. Sorry i may not have been clear

                I don’t know the legality of all this stuff, i’m not a lawyer and have not gone through divorces/ annulments, so i don’t know the legalese and so cannot speak to that.

  11. Sigh…I kind of enjoyed Shahs first season – this season, Reza and Asa are trying too hard. I’ve tuned out.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Bam!!! You hit the nail on the head. They ARE trying too hard. They have both been so mean under the guise of “we’re so cool”!! When they walked out to the pool in Mexico…they had the nerve to put down the folks who were there alluding to them being unattractive…THAT’S SOME NERVE. They looked a bit long in the tooth to be out there with that crowd. Especially Reza and Asa. Lilly was disgusted by their behavior and I don’t blame her. She looked kinda traumatized.

      • chismosa says:

        i kind of sort of agree with you Lainey, BUT the people they showed there were not that attractive and i’m sorry but Nikki Beach is well-known WORLD over for being the top top high class outdoor joints. So, it was odd to find not such high class gorgeous folk there.

        Lilly annoys me with her no drinking. Because it tastes like gasoline? Are you for real? Ughh get the hell out of here. Debbie Downer trying to appear like a wise old sage. Go put back your 12 layers of makeup. What a joke. She goes to LA, is Persian, she should have heard, known VERY WELL what the scene was like- especially if she has family in the O.C. (remember she asked her sister about the family in the OC?)- get out of here.

        Asa is annoying me this season though, i must agree. Reza i will forgive if he tones it down and gets back to usual with MJ.

    • T-Rex says:

      Never really got into the first season and too busy with other shows(not Bravo shows, Bravo take note on how many of us aren’t watching you any more), can’t invest in this one, I tried but can’t. Crap I would watch 20 Duck Dynasty seasons before I would ever watch this show.

      • BB says:

        Me too (rather watch Duck Dynasty). It’s amazing how much my TV is NOT tuned to Bravo anymore. Less and less as time goes by.

        • T-Rex says:

          BB I am watching Top Chef, and RHBH and that’s pretty much it, I had the channel on my “favorites” list on the TV and actually removed it last weekend since I wasn’t watching whatever they were playing over the weekend, and it was annoying having it on there. I don’t see it coming back into my list any time soon. Bravo is losing loads of their audience IMO

          • BB says:

            I’m not even watching Top Chef this season. Only RHOBH and WWHL sporadically. Too many other good things to watch elsewhere. I even watched Downton Abbey for the first time. How refreshing.

          • shamrockblonde says:

            T-Rex – only watching Top Chef and a bit of RHBH – not even really watching NY or NJ any more – I tried wathing the Shahs but could never get past Reza or GG – tonight it’s NCIS and NCIS LA for me –

            • I’m done with the games Bravo plays with editing and “reality”. Sorry, but seeing that Lisa was on Baywatch Nights showed me she’s just another “actress” on a faux reality show too. Although she plays the nicest housewife.
              I’m finding ABC, CBS and NBC are making better shows now. Moving away from reality into drama and comedy is so much nicer to view. Give me a marathon of Once Upon A Time, Revenge or Nashville over a marathon of stinky stanker.
              I too used to watch a lot of Bravo, now not so much!
              I do enjoy the recaps and blogs here however.
              It was crazy on Twitter so see bloggers fighting. I have to chuckle when I see a wanna be try to get to be “friendly” with a housewife. If a HW tweets me back I’m happy to get a response, just like I am when a friend responds to me on twitter.
              Keep digging up the REAL dirt and giving us all something to remind us of why we DON’T want to be a RHW.
              I have so many skeletons I could do a sequel to Pirates of the Caribbean.

    • TexasTart says:

      Same for me, Lady C, the arrogance in Season 2 overwhelmed me and I tuned out.

    • jezzibel says:

      Reza and Asa are trying to turn it into a show about them and shove / get rid of the people that Won’t stay in the background until they are needed by R & A, however I can see Asa’s point about wanting nothing to do with GG and it is kind of valid, GG should have called the next day after the pool party and apologized profusely for getting physical over nothing to do with her (Asa apologized to Omid and they were cool) , instead of trying to blame it all on Asa and taking none of the responsibility for her actions

    • Pghemtchick says:

      I’m getting more and more turned off when they say “white people”. If someone said tan people do/are/etc to Reza or Asa I bet they’d be insulted. The racism is flowing freely off them this season.

      • When I read above (usually don’t watch Shahs) that white people kick their kids out of the house at 18, that baffled me. Who does that? All the white people I know help their kids out, thru college, down payments on homes, weddings, etc. as much as they can. Who are these idiot Persian fools talking about lol?

        • And by the way, the Iranians that I know are not at all like these fools on Bravo’s show at all! They are hard working, highly educated (have any of these Bravo peeps been to college?? Anyone??) and honorable people. Who must be horrified by the crazy fools on the Bravo Shahs.

          • oh yes Lilly. Who is disgusted herself by the rest of the cast….and did she ever practice law? Oh h*ll no she didn’t. She “designs” scwimwear thingamajiggies. Did she even pass the bar? All I heard her say is she’s too “pretty” to practice law. Lilly, it’s so true. Your pretty little head would be lost in a court room or anywhere real lawyers work.

          • Pghemtchick says:

            ((((((((((Blue)))))))))))) I hear you! Its just silly. I can’t believe anyone in today’s society thinks that unless they are sheltered severely from society. General stereotypes of any culture or in this case visible skin color are wrong. Also, talk about lumping everyone together. Dear Reza, not everyone identifies with skin color nor are all of the same skin color the same ethnicity please learn. Don’t be ignorant. I really liked the friend who was biracial Iranian/African American. He “appeared” ( since we only see edited glimpses of him) well rounded and not all into the all Persian all the time. He was an individual who is persian/AA, not a Persian then a male. I dunno. I just can’t fathom people putting there culture infront of their personalalities? Hard to explain in text, but I think you got my thought. Lol like, it’s great to be into your culture, but dissing others because they aren’t yours isn’t cool.

        • chismosa says:

          Blue Sky, if i remember correctly- which i may not– Reza was saying the ‘white people kicking out their kids’ thing in response to something about white people thinking ‘——??’ about the Persians, Middle Easterners.

          BUT, i said this in some post a few days ago- it is very prevalent in many other cultures that the son (ITALY!) and even the daughters- who remain unmarried, stay and live with their parents until they either do get married and move out OR just stay with their parents forever. That is not the norm in the US. I think the financial crisis of the past decade has forced many otherwise normally self-sufficient college grads to have to ‘move back home’- this is not normal here in our American culture. It is ‘normal’ for kids to branch out and form their own identity and live independently of their parents. Speaking generally, not for every single family.

          In other countries it is perfectly normal to remain at home, even after college, etc…. Reza was just putting it like the kids are “forced out” – which i think is a good thing in many ways btw, however not forcing out does foster a greater sense of closeness (which may or may not be healthy ;)), IMHO between the child and parents. JMHO!

          i honestly don’t think Reza meant it disparagingly. We see how much he jokes. jmho

  12. Good Morning Darlings! What a jam packed blog! Thanks NMD, BB, Jen and Ana!

    Remember that fence I said I was on about Kyle? Well, I have firmly plopped over it on by butt on the “not liking” side. What transparent and vile behavior at her dinner party. I won’t even give Faye the time for a comment….ick. But, Kyle was so completely fake through all of that. No wonder her acting career never took off. Also, her comment about thinking that once Kim was sober everything would be “ok” was so ridiculously narcissistic. So much for being happy Kim is getting her life together.

    Jen – thanks for taking the bullet and recapping Vanderpump Rules. I watched for about 15 mins and was done…won’t watch again. I love Lisa, but can’t see how this is going to be good for her rep or business. Having said that, I grew up in L.A. & area and this is truly how these young people are. Not pretty to most of us. I sure hope Bravo & Lisa have a “plan” for the evolution of the show…but I am not sticking around to find out. Like someone else said upthread, I don’t want to ruin my love for Lisa on BH!

    I don’t watch Shah’s, never have, but after reading the recap I’m kinda glad I don’t, LOL! But great job Ana!

    I guess I have whittled down the amount of Bravo TV I watch to “not very much”….so I truly appreciate all of you who do watch and recap so I can live vicariously through your words and keep up with what is going on. You all are awesome!!

    Have a great day everyone!! Many Hugs! 🙂

    New blog “A Dream To Move You” is up at my place. Enjoy!

    Since it’s been interesting to note that so many of us here are discontinuing actually watching the Bravo shows, and just reading these absolutely wonderful blogs and kudos to our wonderful bloggers taking it for the team and actually watching some of this slog to report back to us. So question is who else here is pretty much not watching Bravo at this time?

    I am only watching RHBH and Top Chef

    • BB says:

      Just RHOBH at this time. I might watch RHONY, but that’s it for me.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Wow, great question! 🙂 I watch all of them except MM and OC. I even liked Gallery girls! Oh, I haven’t watched any of the decorating shows. Didn’t watch the LULZ show (lol) or whatever that was called. I DID watch the one about the startups in Silicon Valley. I will give VRules a chance (haven’t seen my taped copy of it, yet).

      On other networks, I’ve started loving Downton Abby and Sons of anarchy. Dance Moms, Abby Lee’s Ultimate Dance competition, Nashville, Breaking Bad, tHE wALKING dead. Oh and I dvr “The Middle” – I love having a few of those on my DVR. I’m afraid if I continue watching shows that showcase great writing and great acting…I might quit Bravo altogether. I look forward to that day, in fact. Oh and THE aMAzing race was fun to watch this year!!

      • Pghemtchick says:

        Aw LoLWork was great! Lol. I loved it anyways. I love the website tho it’s been on my daily visit for over a year now. While not the greatest the lil animal segments made it for me. I still watch bravo, but not live its mainly 2-3 am when I’m medicated. Lol

        yes, i forgot to list that one. I do so enjoy me some Tabita Takes Over!!!

      • plainviewsue says:

        I have to agree that network television has really improved, with shows like Parenthood, Nashville, Revenge, Once Upon A Time, Revenge and of course Downton Abbey!!!

        I have to admit I will continue to watch the housewives. Just don’t watch Atlanta & Miami.

        • chismosa says:

          Hi PlainviewSue- you make a very very good point— network tv and cable tv has done so much these days to improve on scripts/ casting, that is why the movie business is in danger so much – with people just waiting to sit at home and view things via netflix, etc….
          Established movie actors and actresses are all moving to very well-scripted tv shows because THAT is where it’s at right now.
          Reality was a big deal like 3-5 years ago, i think it’s dying down now. Of course there’s still
          Honey Booboo and all that crap but i think Bravo’s #’s must be faltering a little bit. I wonder how Simon’s website Bravo by the numbers or whatever- is analyzing how Bravo is doing these days, hmmm.

          i watch a lot on Demand.
          The only Bravo i watch- if anyone is still counting, is Shahs, NY, NJ, Miami, Atlanta, i loved Gallery Girls and the MisMatched show- i could deal with those girls for some reason. I love love Jeff Lewis but never watched the interior therapy show. But, that’s all i think. Oh and the Million Dollar Listing shows i do watch.
          I watch Kathy’s talk show! coming back Thursday– -so so SO good. I used to be a big fan, then wasn’t, now i’m addicted to her show it’s so funny. it just goes over all the nonsense on tv, especially from Bravo.

            oh i am MOST excited about Kevin Bacon’s new show The Following, coming on soon. He is a great actor and it’s about a serial killer so ==== perfect for me. ha

      • BB says:

        I like Tabitha too.

    • T-Rex says:

      On other TV outside of Bravor am watching American Horror Story, Once Upon a Time, Hawaii Five 0, Bones NCIS and NCIS LA, Criminal Minds, Rupauls Drag Race, Project Runway

  14. Donna says:

    humm I didn’t watch BH, I read the blog. It is considered bad luck to put your purse on the floor, money flows out.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      good to know, Donna

    • ha I never put my purse on the floor ever because I don’t want it to get dirty! At home my floors are clean, but I keep it on a chair. Public bathrooms/floors skeeve me out so I’d never put my purse on the floor in any public place, ever. I keep my purse on my lap in restaurants, or on a chair next to me. Putting it on the back of my chair might enable someone to steal from it. If the bathroom stall doesn’t have a hook, I put my purse around my neck, no lie! My purses always look clean & nice, even after a decade. Bad luck? Oh h*ll no, I just don’t like dirt!

      • Like and relate bluesky! That is so me too!!

      • princesspindy says:

        I use the sanitizer wipes at the grocery store on the handle of course but also on the seat of the cart before I put my purse on it. Little butts have been sitting on there and who knows what amount of fecal matter is on there!!! lol, just food for thought!!

    • chismosa says:

      i didn’t know that superstition and i LOVE superstitions. Wow. i’m going to remember that!

      I saw the movie The Guilt Trip this past weekend and it was very funny how Barbra Streisand kept using the purse hook on tables everywhere to hang her purse up.

    • Sus says:

      So that’s where all my money went!

  15. LaineyLainey says:

    pchick – i actually never watched lolWork. Just never caught it. Glad you liked it.

    • princesspindy says:

      I liked it and it made me lol, which I really don’t do too much when watching TV shows.

      • TexasTart says:

        lolWork was a good one for laughs, but Bravo had it on at a weird time, it was either in the WWHL slot or right after WWHL and I don’t even think it was ever in a regular slot because I would miss it sometimes. It was somewhat of an “The Office” format….this guy who I can not remember his name, CRS moment, but he would say some drop dead funny things with an absolutely straight face. He made the show LOL funny in addition to the funny graphics they do with animals.

  16. stellastars21 says:

    About Mauricio’s name and his preferred pronunciation, I have been watching the season 1 DVDs and his OWN WIFE KYLE calls him MAURICE when she is meeting for lunch with Taylor and Taylor is going on about how she thinks maybe she and Russell will grow into the kind of relationship that Kyle has with her husband. Whilst they can call each other whatever they want I just wish they wouldn’t put on about the correct pronunciation of his name now. But whatever.

  17. Dwight Schrute says:

    “Taylor gets all upset and tells her married lover/lawyer that she cannot imagine someone having the guts to ask someone for their wedding ring.”

    Or more likely because she knows it will come out that her bags are fakes!

    • Couldn’t watch Taylor’s fake tears & awful acting. Funny how it’s easy to watch other shows & still keep up with Bravo’s crapfests. Vanderpump Rules? no it drools lol. Would never go to Sur, & now probably not Villa Blanca either. Which is very easy to decide, since I don’t live in CA & most likely will never go back for a visit in this lifetime!

    • Kansas Girl says:

      I figured she asked for time to “consider” to give herself time to run downtown and buy fakes.

  18. Powell says:

    OK BB I’m done w/Taylor’s psychotic, um psychic. Oprah comes to her “church” & now Princess Di “told her” how she died. Well I see dead people & can predict this lady won’t be back on BH. 😉

    • I did get a kick of watching Taylor open one eye to check out the psycho psychic’s antics. Quickly changed the channel whenever Taylor started up the crocodile tears. Taylor is better this season, but then when you consider where she’s coming from (the gutter) it’s not saying much.

    • T-Rex says:

      Powell did a lot of research this morning and this “psychotic” must be dreaming about Oprah at this church because of everything I have read says that the charlatan, oops founder, of this fauxreligion was ON Oprah’s show but zero on her actually going to this church. If she did it wasn’t to worship there, maybe a visit. Uhm yeah you know how Princess diana died, well so do I she was in a horrific car accident, as the drunk driver of her vehicle was taking the Paris streets at a how velocity of speed with paparrazi following them with no seatbelt. Hmmmm I guess I need to hang a shingle on my office as a psychic too.

      • Powell says:

        T-Rex we’ll split the rent and hang a shingle together. 😀

      • Called A Princess... says:

        T-Rex, I did not know you were in Paris, France that night. It is your opinion that Diana Princess of Wales died in an accident. Believing in fairy tales is for children. The true facts of the case, speak volumes about the possibility that Diana was murdered and your need to help sweep the truth under the rug does her legacy a disservice. And one question. Why were all the seat belts in the car broken except for, the military trained body guards. I do not blame people for believing the fantasy of the corporate press but it is at your own peril. I would not be so eager to pull others down with me. A large percentage of the people in Britain believe that Diana was murder. They do not know how precisely but they know that something does not smell right. JMHO.

        • T-Rex says:

          CAP I am one of THE biggest conspiracy buffs I know, and my mom is British and I have loads of relatives and friends of the family that live in England, and most of them were the ones that convinced me that it probably was just a “tragic” accident, including my cousin that worked for SkyTV at the time, and they were furiously trying to get any and all dirt on this. Actually as time has progressed many now feel there wasn’t a murder because someone would have talked by now. Time will tell on what really happened.

  19. melthehound says:

    Thought I would mention that, Chances are pretty good those who want to, will be able to watch RHO Vancouver. http://www.free-tv-video-online.me/internet/the_real_housewives_of_vancouver/

    Last season they were on YT and I downloaded them before they got deleted but it appears that this particular site, has everything.

  20. djprincessc says:

    For everyone up there trashing Vanderpump Rules and saying how gross it is. I agree 100% and am in their age category AND live in SOCAL!! Those people are so gross and fake that the reason why they all hang out with each other is because GUARANTEED nobody else would associate with them, they have no choice but to be a “Family.” I seriously watched the show for 5 minutes and was DONE. Besides looking dirty, the whole cast looks sick too, wonder how many STDS they all have. lol.

    • melthehound says:

      Between them, probably too many to count. As long as they keep it all in the ‘family’ though, I guess it’s okay..

    • T-Rex says:

      Djp as I posted up thread I was once a part of this world and it is truly a world of it’s own. When you live the hours of these folks you don’t really interract with anyone that isn’t in the same crazy business. Look I have a friend was my Bartender-in-crime at the club we worked at and she works now at a Ritz Carlton and even there she has seen behaviour most unbecoming, even with all of their rules and regulations(seriously the Ritz is very rule oriented, she is very much not like the VPump folks, she is an extremely professional staff member and doesn’t do any funny business). She has worked at some other very high end establishments throughout the years and this lifestyle is what it is. Most of the staff are young, dumb and full of stuff, they have a huge amount of cash burning in their pockets, can’t pay their bills because they spend every dime, and think they are all that and a bag of chips because they are working at a famous restaurant and get to flirt with, wait on and schmooze with real famous people it’s a total ego blast for them. Then you get older and you have to settle down, some do(my friend), some get out of the bidness(me), some remain the stupid 19 year old until they are in their 40’s, have no IRA, no means of support should they lose this job, living in an apartment, probably with a roomate or 3 to pay the bills. Look to be relevant in LA or SouthBeach or NYC you need young, hip, hop, happening crazy folks working in your business, it’s what keeps folks coming to your restaurant.

      • djprincessc says:

        Lol. TReX trust me I totally know. My best friend lives in Las Vegas and has worked at Mirage hotel and City Center, my other gf works at Wynn hotel and 2 other gfs who worked at the Venetian hotel…besides that I have friends that are DJs for some of the MAJOR clubs out there and other gfs who are Gogo dancers and don’t act like those wannabes that work at SUR. Behave that way when you work in nightlife or high end restaurants out there in Vegas and you get FIRED, Hollywood/LA has NOTHING on Vegas. lol.

  21. NMH (@KEGlovesNorway) says:

    After watching BH last night, I realize that the moment Kyle comes on, I start feeling the annoyance as well as with that so-called handsome hubbie of hers. I just can’t stand them. It seems to me that Bravo is refusing also to show too much of Taylor’s drunken antics because they really are trying to phase her out and maybe wan to leave her with a good ending at the end of the season.

    There are a lot of rumors out there about Faye becoming an official HW, but I don’t believe it just like I don’t believe all the rumors abt Bethenny’s divorce. Also no point in accusing her of this or that especially when it’s coming from Radar online or TMZ. The point is they are getting divorced, the details are their business. I had high hopes for them and sad it didn’t work out (as sad as i can get over someone I don’t know) and its easy to blame her for everything but we don’t know how he actually was either. Sometimes people act one way in public but another in the privacy of their home…who knows.

    I’m glad I only read abt Shahs and not actually watch as it would drive me crazy going by the recaps. I find Reza very strange too.

    That’s all my thoughts abt the show EXCEPT how much is Eddie Cibrian loving it that a whole network seems to be devoted to reminding people what a dirtbag he is?

  22. Sus says:

    I’d give a percentage to those that bus my tables but there is no way I’d pool my tips. Especially with those people.

    • Pooling tips sounds like a great way to ramp up the drama. If they have to pool tips, what would stop someone from skimming a hefty amount off their cash tips? I would! Why share what my hard work earned me, with people who aren’t as good at giving great service? Sometimes waiters probably do get lucky with hefty tips, but that’s the nature of the job. I’ve heard of waiters in NYC making incredible amounts of money from their tips. I always try to give cash tips, even if I’m paying with my credit card.

      • T-Rex says:

        Our bar we pooled tips but we didn’t care it was so busy we just grabbed the cash and placed in the bucket behind the bar and we made some great money, but I blew every bit of that, didn’t save one red cent, which is why I couldn’t work in that business, and I went back to college.

      • Kansas Girl says:

        I think they showed us two of them skimming. I caught only a bit of the rerun, but one of the waitresses hauled a wad out of her dress top (the tight black dresses) and handed part of it to another waitress. They were whispering. It was not clear, but they didn’t appear to want anyone to see this.

  23. AZGirl says:

    As I posted upthread I was bouncing around channels after the first half of the ND game. Taylor and the psychic was hilarious. Personally, Taylor was lucky that they settled for just the ring and the handbags but Taylor probably does not have anything else of value. Taylor’s boyfriend is very brave to still be married and film with Taylor as her boyfriend. This John guy is a total dog. I hope his wife gets a lot of cash out of the divorce.
    Once again we have HW (Yolanda) sitting on their kitchen countertops. Why do they think that is cool?
    I thought Brandi handled that meeting with Scheana really well. I can’t imagine how painful it must have been for Brandi to be pregnant and find out Eddie was sleeping around. Hopefully, Scheana has learn a good lesson. Like my mother always said “Any dog can do it in the street”.

    Biggest Loser is really touching this season. Last night was a heart breaker.

But the problem with this one is that well-intentioned people send this organization contributions thinking they are helping save an endangered species. Based on the alleged actions of this guy, makes you wonder where the money has really gone. I hope where the people making the contributions intended it to go.

    In Maloof family news it doesn’t look like the Sacramento Kings will be moving to Virginia Beach, VA. http://hamptonroads.com/2013/01/va-beach-mayor-says-arena-project-dead-now

    As for Taylor, her blog is up and is pretty disgusting
    “I wasn’t wearing the ring and the material object wasn’t important to me but, it felt like letting go all over again. More importantly, it was one of very few happy mementoes that I expected Kennedy to have. I had hoped she would wear it when she got married.”

    You Daddy beat me, committed extensive fraud, threatened friends with lawsuits and I dumped him before he killed himself, but here, wear this as an eternal symbol of your love for your intended. As Brandi would say, ARE YOU F””KING KIDDING ME?!?

  27. Icenfire says:

    OT – Where is chili recipe posted? …I can’t comment on anything, haven’t watched shows in a couple days, dvr is full and I really feel like just deleting everything *sigh*

  28. Shiny says:

    Taylor wanted to keep the ring because it was her bank account! No sentiment in that heart. Company suing was smart to only give her a day: any longer and she would have had a fake ring made to hand over as settlement and then claim that she’d never realized it was a fake (with the real one well hidden).

    No surprise the purses were fake – like everything else about her and her husband as they tried to make money and climb into BH ‘society”.

  29. IceNFire says:

    hmm…testing

  30. Kansas Girl says:

    Remember when we were wondering where Lisa was at Kyle’s dinner party when Brandi left the table? Last night, as Brandi goes into the kitchen, there is a man inside the door and Lisa is in the background. You see her back and the hair and she quickly moves out of the scene. But why was she in the kitchen?

    • BB says:

      Lisa said in her blog she had gotten up from the table at one point. Maybe you had to go through the kitchen to get to the bathroom or something. Or maybe she wanted to give her compliments to the chef. Lol.

      • VV says:

        She also said on WWHL that the she left the table because she had had enough of whatever was going on with Fay at the table.

    • let’s not forget how totally totally scripted these shows are! she was waiting for her cue to come back & film the scene outside. Maybe going over her lines as well?

  31. Kansas Girl says:

    Wait a minute! The restaurant dinner with Kyle, Morrie, Lisa, Ken, Taylor and married man — Lisa says Ken’s surgery was 2 weeks ago, which would put it mid June, right? Yet Taylor has already given up the magic ring and fake bags, which was not reported till July 14. Timeline messed up?

    • lmao as if this show is following “real time” it’s following the producer’s script! and as they edit this crapfest, sometimes they are able to make things more dramatic by showing them out of order. they also love to go back & film extra crap to fill in the pre-scripted story line, which may change when the “actors” oops cast come up with unscripted off the cuff dramatics.

      • When Russell committed suicide, it was truly horrific how the producers – without an eye blink – used it in the show to create more drama. More drama, more viewers, more advertising dollars, and thus more money….blood money that is.

      • it’s fun when the real life antics of the cast catch up with them, as with Taylor’s lawsuit, giving up her ring, etc. I can imagine the producers working up a lather of sweat, too as when Jax goes off on twitter revealing the plotlines of upcoming episodes or the entire upcoming season in her drunken rants.

      • T-Rex says:

        Yeppers we have heard they had to cut a lot scenes because ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterLypsMcgee was so drunk and unintelligible they could not even use the footage, they got her a handlers to keep the alcohol away from her to at least film her. I think this is one of those filler scenes filmed later than the timeline would show. I also think this is the phasing out of ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterLypsMcgee from the show as well

  32. Kansas Girl says:

    Is anyone else cracking up that the Maloofs call each other such endearing names and then follow it up with mean comments to each other. Did they really think we would believe their relationship was still sound?

    • BB says:

You don’t threaten Bravo and tell them then can’t air what Brandi said(yeppers heard this is why they edited the audio), you chose to go on a REALITY show(even if it is scripted).

          Nancy. Have I said one bad thing about this Paul Watson? Did I say the story was true? I dont think so. I just posted it because I knew some people on here watched the show. Sorry for trying to pass on some information to people who may be interested

            the organization. It drives me crazy when idiots write articles like TMZ did today.

  36. PJ says:

    Some other sites are saying that Faye Resnick has been officially made a friend of the housewives. Is this true, does anyone know? Haven’t viewers made it pretty clear that they don’t want anything to do with Faye Resnick?

    • T-Rex says:

      PJ she was named this prior to this season airing, so I don’t think this is something new

    • BB says:

      I may be wrong, but I believe it was Bravo’s intention all along that she be a “friend of the housewives” this season. It has backfired on them big time. Seems I remember something being said about her picture being removed from the Bravo RHOBH page as part of the cast. And Bravo has also taken down her blog,by her choice or theirs, I don’t know. Hopefully this is a sign that Bravo has realized their mistake and are trying to correct it.

      • Powell says:

        That would be nice.

      • T-Rex says:

        Yes this backfired hugely! I believe FayeKR also tried to claim she was getting death threats @@ and she wanted the blog taken down, uhm FayeKR has been claiming death threats on her life for many, many years, since the time she was married to the drug dealer. I think FayeKR has used this as an excuse too many time, IMO only so many times one can cry Wolf. I think she should just cry her way into a private life if every time she is in public someone wants to kill her. Just sayin

    • chismosa says:

      Hi all— i don’t really watch Beverly Hills- just catch bits and pieces but when all this talk of Faye comes on i had to check out old footage and new footage of her to watch- just wondering- is she African American?
      I know there was all that old talk of her and OJ and all that stuff back then….
      I was just wondering, that’s a nice cultural (?) addition to the Bev Hills wives i did not know of. thanks~~~~~

  37. IceNFire says:

    ikd why Adrienne is going forward with her skin care line. In her blog she mentions her fans but looking at the comments it doesn’t appear that she has too many RHOBH fans. The Kings have fans but they are not Maloof fans.

    • Powell says:

      A skin care line seems like such a ridiculous venture for her to get into to me. Dr Paul doing it makes sense, not his ex.

    • T-Rex says:

      In addition you can’t watch TV any longer without some uber celebrity hawking a skin line every 5 minuts. HoofMaloof doesn’t have a chemistry background so they are promoting some other doctor or dermatologists line of products. First off, Cindy Crawford, Suzanne Sommers, etc. look fantastic for their age, is it the skin line they promote, is it genetics, who knows, but the HoofMaloof does NOT look good for her age, she is not someone I would purchase skin products from because I think her skin looks horrid and she is married to a plastic surgeon for cripes sake. So another EpicFail. The HoofMaloof also has admitted on more than one occasion she doesn’t have great relationships with other women, so don’t see her having a good fan base amongst women.

      • BB says:

        I think her best bet would be to come up with a line of hair tinsel or Alladin lounge wear. Or maybe a soothing foot cream for after you wear her maloof hoofs all day?

      • lillybee says:

        I would buy whatever Ramona S. is hawking, her skin looks great especially considering her age.

  38. TexasTart says:

    Well written blogs across the board! Thanks to NMD, Ana, Jen & BB!

    Ana might have to do a flow chart for relationships to keep up with the SUR cast 😉 That collage scene at the end was really not helpful, I guess it was intended to help lure us back?!

    BB – calling Kyles’ dining room a “torture chamber” and the digs on FR and her partner in crime are well deserved, thank you! That was a particularly good WWHL! Several surprised and lots of laugher, no ackward moments. Glad you put the Amy Phillips link there, all Lisa fans should check it out!

    For the vault segment, they could have found something older and I don’t know how many years ago for Baywatch, but people, you can drag up much older footage or stills of Queen Lisa and you will find that her face is very well preserved but not at all in a plastic way. IMO she looks true to form, younger than she is in years, yes. But there is a difference in making a new face and preserving what you have. And you ALL know what I mean, for example Taylor has very little resemblance to pics from her youth. Adrienne has allegedly destroyed pics from her youth! 😮

    BB,
    Thanks for passing along the SSCS news from TMZ. Never thought I’d see an article there about them. It’s one lawsuit I’ll definitely keep an eye on. While I believe SSCS does some amazing work and they’ve sacrificed for the continuation and betterment of animals, I think Mr. Gill may have a case. I’m not saying that the ship was “ordered down” in the nefarious manner he suggests, but he does have some evidentiary support. As an avid watcher, I remember reading about the collision/sink on both the SSCS website and ICR’s websites, then once the season aired of course watching it. The points against it were: that ship should have never been there (non ice class hull, fiberglass/Kevlar hull) and the helmsman wasn’t trained. The reasons I think he has a case fall back onto the New Zealand (country ship was registered in) Maritime collision report. (found here: http://www.maritimenz.govt.nz/AdyGil/Investigation-report-Ady-Gil-Shonan-Maru-Lo-rez.pdf) It’s 66 pages, but prolly only 30 in text. The highlights regarding the case thoughts are in 2 areas: 1. Why attempt to destroy/hide evidence? And 2. Did it sink?

    29. Ady Gil’s master had earlier confirmed that two chart plotters, referred to as ‘Simrads’, had been removed from Ady Gil. MNZ investigators had anticipated receiving the two Simrads from Bob Barker when she berthed in Hobart, but these could not be found and the crew were at a loss to explain their disappearance.
    30. On 24 May 2010, MNZ investigators were advised that a member of the public had found a Simrad washed up on a beach in Tasmania. The Simrad was handed back to the manufacturing company which, using serial numbers, was able to identify the Simrad as being from Ady Gil.
    31. It is not considered that the Simrad could have remained afloat long enough for it to drift from Antarctic waters to Tasmania. One explanation is that it was thrown overboard before Bob Barker reached port in Hobart. SSCS acknowledged that this was most likely the case, and through its own inquiries attempted unsuccessfully to identify the crewmember responsible.
    127. Inquiries were subsequently made with the manufacturer of Ady Gil. On assessing images of the damage sustained, the manufacturer expressed the opinion that the remainder of the hull, undamaged sponson and other watertight areas would be sufficient to keep the vessel afloat.
    128. Therefore, it cannot be concluded whether or not Ady Gil has sunk. No further sightings had been reported as at the date of this report’s publication.

    I would bet this will pop up as evidence the ship could be salvaged. Why not sue the ICR as well since they were deemed partially responsible? Who knows… Should be interesting.

    Where are my manners? Welcome blogger Jen. Great job with Vanderpump Rules. I don’t know if I could do that show, but you did an excellent job of recapping it.

    TY for blog Jen, sry I overlooked you in my 1st TY today

    Lisa said what Adrienne said about Radar could hurt her business? Nothing will hurt her business like her own show, Oy. It is awful. Just awful! Worse than the ads even suggested.

    And, some of the worst reality show phoniness ever with the whole Sheena thing. Obvious neither Sheena nor Brandi wanted to have this talk. Lisa made this happen for her own selfish reasons, using Brandi’s need to please her and Sheena’s need to stay employed and on the new show. When Lisa says, ‘Sheena said she wants to talk to you’, it was really, ‘I convinced Sheena to come on air and pretend she wants to talk to you for the purposes of creating drama for my sleazy new show’. And, Brandi said she’s angry about giving Sheena any more attention yet Lisa is giving Sheena all the attention in the world for sleeping with Eddie by forcing it to be a storyline and including her on her show! Hey, f Brandi, Lisa needs drama for her new show! Nice.

    And, on a completely unrelated note…sorry for all Redskins fans. Just came down RG3 does indeed need surgery, how much to be determined during the procedure. Hopefully, he’ll be back in time for the start of next season.

      CONGRATS @LisaVanderpump! Her new is is major hit. 2 million watched.

      • chismosa says:

        Hi VV, but i’m sorry doesn’t that mean 2 million had watched the actual Beverly Hills episode? They didn’t split it into two separate shows so there is no way to tally who watched the 2nd hour. Or am i reading this wrong?

        ~~~~ps what are you thinking about Bethenny and all the latest. Cra-cray- right?!

        • VV says:

          I’m only reporting the nimbets. I’m not totally disliking the show. I think there is something there. Will I watch religiously, I don’t know. It will depends on what Bravo decides to showcase. If the characters have interesting storylines, I might. Again, I’m going on a hunch so take that for whatever is worth 🙂

          • VV says:

            *nimbets=numbers

          • VV says:

            Yes, that was the total viewership for VR time slot. As far a B, I think she is listening to her PR people. Very quiet Today on Twitter. Let’s see how long it lasts.

            • BB says:

              Not long. She is going to be on Ellen tomorrow and word is she will address her personal life. I guess it remains to be seen how much she talks about it. I wish she would handle this privately. I would have more respect for her if she did.

              • VV says:

                ooooo …. Are they in panic mode now?!!!……………….Sounds like. I mean she was getting real nasty and negative comments on TMZ and TMZ has a lot of reach. There was no love there for her at all…

              • chismosa says:

                oooh, thanks BB for that— i will have to dvr. But Ellen has her on all the time anyway. So you see, now Bryn is probably in LA with her for this— after being in NY with her dad & grandparents for christmas, then in Colorado for new year’s with Bethenny— a lot of running around for this poor little girl.

                VV— IT’S SPIN SPIN SUGAR. Damage control totally. She’s going to be ‘really open and honest’ and try to open up to everyone about this big news. Blech.

    • VV says:

      Sorry, kit9 I meant to post this as a new post not a reply.

    • melthehound says:

      Vanderpump Rules was indeed a total crapfest. First, it should be called, Stassi Rules. Being a pal of Pandora’s it’s obvious she thinks she runs that place. Second, someone mentioned it elsewhere and I didn’t think much of it when I first saw it but, What the hell is with the Staff Tasting the drinks? Are they all staggering around by closing time? Third, I have to wonder what else they are tasting. Are they nibbling off of the customer’s plates as they bring them out from the kitchen? What a waste of airtime but then, what do we really expect from a network that gives us the likes of Million Dollar Matchmaker (talk about a stinkfest)..

      Between here and Facebook, I’ve not seen many who actually liked that show. In fact, more are pissed off that the end time of RHOBH was extended an hour and their DVRs recorded it whether they wanted to watch it or not.

    • princesspindy says:

      Just before RG3 got hurt he was doing a Gatorade commercial or hawking something and I told my husband, “He has such skinny legs, his calves look like bird legs.” Another Redskins quarterback that I can handle watching the replay of their leg getting hurt. Remember Joe Theismann, ugh, I still can’t watch that film, it hurts me. RG3’s leg just wobbled back and forth at the knee, it was gruesome!!!

  46. TexasTart says:

    RHOM lost footage, should be called undesirable footage because it’s not dramatic.enough for them to use in episodes. We probably only see a fraction of what is filmed. So far, blah, just to see a different, softer side of the women in Miami, but it’s not funny…so far . NY’s lost footage was very funny.

    • BB says:

      Dance Moms is pretty good tonight. Change the channel!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      So the lost footage is actually an infomercial for Mama E’s coffee?

      • TexasTart says:

        No kidding….Elsa is entertaining, but this pushing tje coffe a few minutes is okay, but it was half the show?! 😐

        If anyone’s DVR captured this lost footage, just know it could have remained lost!

  47. Orson says:

    Dear LiLO, have you ever heard of the “pencil test”? When gravity isn’t your friend, brars are.

    • chismosa says:

      i don’t want to sound stupid- what is the pencil test?

      I know the thing about using a pencil at the end of your nose to angle it to your eyes to see where your eyebrows should ideally end but i don’t know this— an alcohol test?

      Lindsay likes to free-flow a la NY Housewife Alex but she has implants. So, she’s big and free flows.

      • BB says:

        The pencil test is if you put a pencil under your boob and it stays there instead of dropping to the floor, then the girls need to be locked and loaded and you shouldn’t be going around braless.

    • TexasTart says:

      Orson, there’s a lot that LiLo’s missing!

      • chismosa says:

        she was SUCH a promising actress years ago. She was like what Emma Stone is today. It’s just so sad. What a waste.

        I hope she can turn around a la Drew Barrymore

        • chismosa says:

          i followed a lot of legit media publications – not rags- more like Entertainment Weekly, NY Magazine, back in the day of Lindsay being a darling- and she was truly talented and people were claiming she was just going to be IT.
          But, her past- parents & DNA, caught up with her.

          I know she was not like, Oscar-nominated but she was really star-worthy back like 10 years ago. Mean Girls/ SNL time.

      • IceNFire says:

        I know she did the Herbie movie and recently did the Liz and Dick movie but what else has she done? Ever? besides hosting mtv’s vma’s

        • IceNFire says:

          I think the last thing Melissa Gilbert did was a lifetime movie. So LiLo is a has been child star, soon to be on RHOBH

          • TexasTart says:

            Or Dancing with the Stars. Melissa was on it last year, I think., Oh wait, that would be too much work for LiLo.. back to the RHOBH idea!

        • BB says:

          Two other movies I can think of are Georgia Rules and The Parent Trap. Wasn’t she also in Mean Girls?

          • IceNFire says:

            yes – forgot about Mean Girls and never heard of the other two

            • melthehound says:

              Parent trap is as old as Disney dirt and has been remade about a thousand times. It’s about twins separated at birth. One has a privileged upbringing and the other does not. Not bad but just not as rich as the other. Somehow they meet, usually at a ‘camp’ and decide they need to get their natural parents together, and married (who both happen to be divorced or widowed). I’ve never seen Georgia Rules. I think Linsay also did a Freaky Friday type movie where she switches places with her mother. Done earlier by Jodie Foster if I remember correctly. I don’t think she’s done much of anything note worthy other than make court appearances for addiction and what not.

            • melthehound says:

              As for her saggy boobs, when she trips over them I guess she’ll do something about controlling them.

          • Orson says:

            She was in Prairie Home Companion.

  48. IceNFire says:

    Has anyone watched Catfish on MTV? It’s a for real reality show…2 thumbs up

    • TexasTart says:

      Yes. I saw the first three episodes, the rest are on DVR. I found it very interesting that some people, dezpite being mislead by people online, still maintained a relationship with them! I think they have invested so much of themselves, in a way they did get to know this person….just not as advertised.

  49. TexasTart says:

    Oh my, Orson! The poll on WWHL tonight is should LiLo wear a bra?

  50. Laineylainey says:

    Oh my goodness…I finally got through last night’s bravo recordings…I don’t know how to tell you, I DON’T HATE vRUles!!!!

    • TexasTart says:

      Good, now you’re in charge of VR snark! 😛

    • TexasTart says:

      Oh, and apparently “skeevy” is part of the necessary vocabulary for our benefit….sucks and like go a long way too, ha.

    • princesspindy says:

      I am getting concerned…..I know you can stop whenever you want but we may have to do a Bravo intervention…….

      • Laineylainey says:

        Hi princess! Haha…It’s not that I love these characters, but I do have soooooome empathy. My kids are this age and so that is interesting to me. My son would fit in better with those lol people, but my daughter could work at Sur. well maybe not in that “uniform”—she is a size 2, but I doubt they could pay her enough to wear that thing. I’m also thinking that Stassy is being set up…for a big fall. The producers have decided that the audience will hate Stassy, she’s the bad guy…then Stassy will have a public fall…then Stassy will see the light and be redeemed. Yes, I’m saying Stassy is Jean Val Jean!!!! Muahahahahaha!!!!!!

  51. WindyCityWondering says:

    Love the RHBH blogs this week – Yolanda, Marisa and Lisa are not letting the sophmoric behavior of Kyle/Fay slide – this what I am talking about! Time for the low hanging fruit to leave the fabulous zip code’s tree.

  52. Pghemtchick says:

    Sadly Lifetime and Dance moms have gone the way of manipulating timelines ala Bravo to create drama on the show… Not to spoil it, let’s just say one event was Oct and the other the end of November… I wonder why they chose the location of the November event. There are several other non-dead/almost obsolete choices… I’ll be less cryptic once the blog posts, but google for the win.

    • Laineylainey says:

      I’m usually the one defending Abby Lee… Well, not defending, but trying to point out that there are many, many dance teachers/directors like her. I’m not saying she is right, I’m saying her kind is not uncommon. They have very little in the way of quality credentials…meaning they usually have no real practical professional dance experience..they usually do not hold a degree in dance…and most importantly they have absolutely no formal training in classroom management, child development or chid psychology. two things from this episode really hit me in the gut. when Hadley from the ultimate competition cried to her mom about how Abby’s words are haunting her. Abby called her performance “road kill”. She did that for ratings. She did it to get a reaction from the audience. then when the little Sophia spoke, Abby ridiculed her voice. She said “Minnie Mouse has a job, we don’t need another one.” That little girl is small in size but she’s not infantile, she knows Abby was tearing her down. that just killed me. Yes, yes, I know she says horrible things to her regular kids but their moms are equally vile, so it has never quite hit me like it did this episode.

  53. mrspeabody says:

    Just read Yolanda’s blog, she calls it like us viewers see it. She is right on in her take of everything. Kyle is a mean girl and use’s the morally corrupt Faye to be her mouth piece.

    • T-Rex says:

      Glad to see that everyone sees VIleKyleMeanGirl for the title she has proudly earned. Going to be an interesting reunion, VileKyleMeanGirl, HoofMaloof and ShannaTaylornotfordLyingLypsMcgee, against the rest of the women, including Marisa who is apparently no longer TeamVileKyleMeanGirl. I also heard LisaVpump said in an interview that she was no longer interested in a friendship with VileKyle, she is cordial to her in public and on the show, but that was it and that VileKyle doesn’t understand why LisaVump and Marisa are no longer really friends. Uhm VileKyle you had FayKR on the show, nough said

  54. T-Rex says:

    K just rewatched the episode, and some notes to add. ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterLypsMcgee is not paying for that Bravo-rented house as we heard after filming she was still living with VileKyleMeanGirl and Murray. The whole channeling thing with the fakepsychic if she really knew about the settlement she would have told her she was going to LOSE! And wouldn’t the fauxpsychic know that this wasn’t really her house, but Bravopaid for just this season. Oprah was brought up by ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterLypsMcgee, and the leader of the fauxreligion was on her show once years ago, not relevant. Now onto FayeKR who is the most VILE person to ever appear on a HW show. This biotch chastised Brandi for her actions and she accused Brandi for her pattern of behaviour okay you stupid c**t, you have made no less than 15(on the internet this is how many I counted before giving up) claims of death threats that were FALSE! You made this claim to try to get out of testifying in court regarding your drug dealing husband, you claimed this when your second husband threw you out of his house, you claimed this when the person you were conning to keep a place to live threw you out of their house, you claimed this when you had an intervention to go to rehab, before your “friend” was killed. You claimed this after Nicole was killed, you claimed this after you wrote that horrific LIE of a book to cash in on the dead body of your so called Friend, you claimed this when you posed for playboy, again to make money on the dead body of your so called friend, you claimed this after the Camille dinner party with the esmokingfauxmedium, then she claimed this again as to why Bravo took down her blog. This LOSER needs to go away and if Bravo EVER again airs her shite they need to be ashamed!

    • TexasTart says:

      Ah ha! I thought maybe Kyle said.she had a Grifter on her pool house! I haven’t watched it a second time (yet). Applause for your post, T-Rex, and applause for the wave of cast members and even her own sister seeing what WE see and acting on it in REAL life!!! Hats off to the best play on names ever = FayKR…not sure I said that before so I have to throw that in. She IS the most vile of all times……be gone witch!

    • Contessa says:

      T-Rex, love love love your post. Thanks for sharing all the info…I was glued to the entire simpson trial thingy and hated Faye as she came across so fake. I am glad that Lisa and the rest of the newer crew have put Kyle in her place. I wonder how she feels now that she has fallen so far from S1.
