New Producers for Real Housewives of New Jersery / Project Runway Recap

New Producers for Real Housewives of New Jersey and Other News by NoMoreDrama

Melissa Gorga has given an interview to the HuffingtonPost, where she revealed that the Real Housewives of New Jersey will have new producers this season.  Anyone reading the blogs will remember that the previous production team was accused of manipulating the show by becoming friends with the cast – specifically Melissa.  I’m holding out a little hope that the upcoming season won’t be as transparently manipulated to cause trouble between the ladies.  Last season was so toxic it was difficult to watch.

Jason Hoppy  may have felt that  Bethenny Frankel was emotionally straying in the last few months of their marriage.  According to a source speaking to RadarOnline (and by now we know that half of the stuff they print is untrue) : “Jason doesn’t believe Bethenny cheated on him during the marriage and he would be devastated to find out if she did. However, Jason does think that the talk show host did emotionally stray during the final months of their marriage with one of her Skinnygirl colleagues. Bethenny just stopped communicating with Jason and he saw her just completely withdraw from the relationship. Jason did see Bethenny interact with one of her Skinnygirl colleagues the way she used to with him.”

Meanwhile Jason was again spotted wearing his wedding ring in New York.

Ramona Singer of the Real Housewives of New York gave an interview to TheStir where she dishes about:

  • Her cast mates:”I’ll embrace anyone who is coming back.”
  • Her reason for doing the show – to promote TrueFaithJewelry.
  • Her former castmates – “Jill Zarin? “We talk; I’m fine with her; no one is perfect.” Kelly Bensimon? “We see each other, but you can’t talk to Kelly. You know that.”
  • What pisses her off – the talking heads when people talk behind her back (she likes it when they say things directly to her face.)
  • And Adiva “”I don’t dislike her.”

Lisa Hochstein seems to get along with all of her castmates on the Real Housewives of Miami, but she was given a seat on the couch beside Joanna Krupa – who is clearly at odds with Adriana de Moura.  Lisa has given an interview where she explains that she isn’t on anyone’s team.  She refused to choose sides all season, and she’s still neutral.  Despite it appearing that she is closer to Joanna, she’s actually not been in touch much with Joanna since the season finished.  As for Adriana – they’ve grown even closer as their husbands get along well.  You can read more here.

Maloof’s sell the Sacramento Kings.  After months of rumors and different scenarios being floated, yahoo is reporting that the Adrienne Maloof’s family’s NBA team – the Sacramento Kings – has been sold for $500 million dollars to a group from Seattle.  Fans of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will no longer have to sit through the ladies wasting courtside seats and not having a clue what sport they are watching.  The team will be renamed the Sonics.  Seattle kept the name when they lost their team in 2008.

Project Runway All Stars “Couture de France” by BB

Tonight the remaining 4 designers (Uli, Emilio, Joshua and Anthony Ryan) travel to Paris to get inspiration from haute couture.  They tour the House of Valentino and get invited to their couture show.  The next day the designers do some sketching.  Emilio is going to do a ball gown.  Uli is going to do a dress that’s out there and inspired by Paris.  They visit a popular fabric house in Paris and have difficulty deciding on fabrics because there is so much to choose from.  Anthony Ryan chooses black, Emilio chooses red, and Joshua choses a floral pattern.

The designers go to the Valentino couture show and afterwards, Joanna tells them to take inspiration from what they’ve seen and get back to New York to make their own dreams.  They arrive back in New York tired, but they know they don’t have time for tiredness.  Uli’s dress is all these gold and black textures.  Anthony Ryan’s dress isn’t working so he’s going to try something else.

Joanna visits Emilio and tells him not to let his appliques overwhelm his dress.  Joanna tells Uli her dress may be a little gladiator looking.  Joanna can’t quite envision Joshua’s dress as it’s only halfway done.  Anthony Ryan is getting off to a slow start with his dress although Joanna loves the fabric he chose.

The models arrive and Uli’s dress is too big again.  Emilio wants his model covered up because he thinks it looks regal that way.  He’s having trouble with his sleeves.  Anthony Ryan admits he’s struggling this week and it scares the crap out of him.  They all finish the first day very tired.

The next day Emilio says he’s only about half way done and Joshua tells him he’s not alone in the work they have to do.  Uli is worried about the lining of her dress, but it has to have a lining so she can’t really do anything about it.  Anthony Ryan ends up being very happy about his dress.

Runway time.  Cynthia Rowley is the guest judge.  Joshua’s dress is up first and it really clashes from top to bottom.  The top is a metallic/black couture look matched with a full floral skirt.  I’m not sure I’m liking the fit of it on his model. Anthony Ryan’s dress is a deep black lacy looking dress that has kind of a Victorian look to it.  It has a high collar on the sides and fits his model to a tee.  It’s see through, but you really can’t see anything.  Uli’s dress has a breast plate looking top and a lacy see through bottom.  The back of it is a strip of fabric with a black strip in the middle, not sure if it’s a zipper or not.  Emilio’s dress is striking because of the rich red fabric he chose.  His model looks very regal walking down the runway. It’s demure.

Carolyn announces their gowns were truly spectacular.  Two of the judges want to touch Emilio’s dress.  Isaac loves the dress and tells Emilio he could have made it shorter so you could see the model’s foot.  Georgina thinks it’s beautifully executed and Cynthia thinks it’s strong in its simplicity.  Carolyn says she’s in fantasyland looking at the dress.

Georgina thinks Anthony Ryan’s model looks divine and can’t believe he didn’t use a lining.  She thinks it’s brilliant because she can’t tell he didn’t use a lining.  Isaac calls the side silhouette of the dress precious because it’s controlled and sexy in a very new way.   Cynthia calls it beautiful and Carolyn tells him kudos, but she thinks the dress should breathe a little bit more.

Cynthia calls the mix of textures interesting in Uli’s dress, but she and Georgina don’t like the lining under the dress.  Carolyn calls it a very Uli dress, but she doesn’t like the blob going up the back of the dress.  Isaac thinks it looks great, but it’s not couture.  He’s seen it everywhere.

Isaac appreciates the experimentation Joshua attempted, but thinks Joshua’s experiment doesn’t exactly work.  Georgina thinks the floral is too small.  Cynthia thinks the fit’s not right and Carolyn thinks the skirt’s shape is off to her, but she likes it.

Anthony Ryan is announced the winner and is the first the get a spot in the finale.  Emilio is also safe and is in the finale.  The judges cannot decide who to eliminate so Carolyn gives both Uli and Joshua one last chance to earn a spot in the finale.  They have one hour to deconstruct their couture dresses and remake them into something totally different.  They have to do it right there on the runway.

Joshua shortens the floral skirt of his dress and makes it into something more flirty.  He reverses his lace top so the back becomes the front.  I like it much better than his original dress.  Uli uses the leftover lining fabric from her dress and makes a short drapey-looking dress with a lace shrug.  Although I’m not a fan of it, Uli managed to come up with something unique.  The judges still have a difficult decision and Carolyn asks them to write the name of the person on a card they would like to see move on to the finale.  Uli is chosen as the third designer to go to the finale.  I would have chosen Joshua only because he’s more creative than Uli and takes more chances, in my opinion.

Next week each designer will have four days to design a mini-collection for the runway and a winner will be announced.

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. I’ll be so glad when this work day is done. Miserable sleep last night. I hope you all have a great day.

    • TexasTart says:

      Fancy finding you here, Powell! 😉 Sorry for less than steller nights’ sleep, it happens that I wake up to early often and can not return to sleep. Seems to make the day seem too long. Well, hopefully time for you will fly by. TGIF!

    • AZGirl says:

      I will take the blame for the sleepless night. Probably visions of Andy with barn animals 🙂

    • Morning Powell….me too! Carrrazy dreams last night…lots of shouting. It was unsettling. Starting to come out of it now.

      However, there were no barn animals in these dreams! 😉 (((((AZGirl)))))

      • trudie says:

        It must have been a night for crazy dreams. I dreamt that I got into an argument with some woman at a party. We were standing by the swimming pool arguing, and some random guy came, pushed her into the pool and drowned her. In the meantime, I went up on the patio and got another drink!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I went to bed earlier than usual…and wow!! It was hard for me to wake UP!!!! But I made it in on time (barely). Sorry you didn’t sleep well, Powell. Hope you get caught up on your sleep.

  2. TexasTart says:

    Good Morning!
    It’s hard to fathom that new producers could help NJ, considering what they have to work with!!!

    • Orson says:

      It’s hard for me to imagine new producers doing a worse job on RHNJ

    • Boobah says:

      I thought the same thing, TT. The whole show is a lost cause. I just couldn’t sit through an entire episode. Like you, I doubt different producers can do anything about it.

      • Agree completely Boobah. *Waves*

        • Boobah says:

          *waves back* Hi Mardrag!!! RHNJ was so hard to watch! I think it may have turned me off HW’s for good! I tried to watch Maimi but I just couldn’t stick with it. Plus Bravo is airing these HW shows too darn close together. I didn’t feel like I got any breathing room between franchises.
          The true test for me will be RHoNY. I love NYC so I might be able to sit through it. But I hope we see more fun times not just over-the-top drama. Time will tell.

          • Totally agree with everything you said. I could not stomach NJ at all and won’t ever tune into that franchise again no matter what they do with it. Couldn’t get into Miami either. Watching BH, but it is bugging me as well. I will try NY again….but you are right….too many franchises too fast and it’s too much. They did overkill with them and now we are all too saturated with it…and the “drama” is not the fun kind anymore. I want to chuckle and feel good when I watch…not like I want to wretch. We will see if Andy is listening to his viewers, but I doubt it. Like T-Rex said yesterday, he sees it as his personal playground. He is a bit twisted!

      • plainviewsue says:

        Rumor has it (and I happen to believe) that the Gorgas, as well as the other families were very friendly with the former producers. Melissa & Joe especially. The producers always favored them. Showing how much they loved each other (yuck!), how devoted, blah blah blah. On the other hand, well we all know how Teresa was shown. There were also rumors that Melissa was sleeping with one of the now fired producers, Kat Rodriguez.

        I would like to believe that the upcoming season will be fairer, but I don’t. I heard the season will begin airing August 2013, one month before MeGo’s book comes out. No way will all of her skeletons be revealed when Bravo gets a percentage of her book sales.

        • Called A Princess... says:

          Nothing seems to have changed. Andy is supposedly still backing the Gorgas including the silly book Melissa has written. She has had many magazine covers and articles recently that imply heavy Bravo sponsorship and duplicity. I think Andy has proven that he not only likes the sleazy side of life, but he wants to promote it to the world. Social porn? JMHO.

  3. AZGirl says:

    Good morning everyone! COLD here in AZ. REALLY COLD. Warmer in Chicago than here.
    MM was on all night on Bravo. Heavens someone at Bravo needs their head examined. Patty is just painful to watch.
    Jason still wearing his wedding band…..hmmmmm. He is obviously very traditional and will not take it off until the papers are final.

  4. FLASHBACK FRIDAY….. NUMBER ONE SONG SECOND WEEK OF JAN 1983..

    rainy ucky morning here in fla… hopefully the SUN will be out later…..
    don’t like to wake up to gloom….
    have a good one all
    errand day….

    hugs and peace
    diva

  5. BB says:

    Happy Friday everyone! I’m actually going to get out of the house today. I’ve been a recluse (slug) all week. Probably go to the library. Don’t want to go into a crowded store with the flu bug out there. Taking my hand sanitizer with me. Lol. BBL

    • Powell says:

      Good idea about the hand sanitzer. Good thinking. 🙂

      • Boobah says:

        Yeah, definitely good thinking.I just left my Dr.’s and I brought my hand sanitizer and clorox wipes to wipe off my purse! No better place to pick up a bug than at the Dr. Office or a hospital. Call me paranoid, but this bug scares the shite outta me!
        Good news though- my Doc said the bug seems to be slowing down a little. He also noted that it seemed to appear right on the heels of Hurricane Sandy.

    • Donna says:

      I noticed that people in Japan wear dust masks when out in public to guard against breathing germs. Humm I have a box of gloves.

      • Donna says:

        I use the gloves when pulling weeds so I don’t get poison ivy/oak again.

      • Pghemtchick says:

        Lol you aren’t all germaphobe crazy. ❤ I have to goto the store tomorrow and was thinking the exact same thing! Also, I've concluded no eating out for me until this passes. The bug can live 8 hours on a surface, and who knows if the person came to work sick. Joe Gorga apparently is in the hospital w/ it. He's been sick 4 days today's day 5 and according to a Marco sister was running 104… Yeah, not a bug I want.

      • Kansas Girl says:

        They do wear masks — sort of surgical masks they tie around their ears. They also come to class with a washcloth pressed to their mouth. I’m not sure any of it traps the germs, and then they lay the washcloth down to do something….. Yuck.

  6. Survivor is back February 13th. Fans versus favorites. Malcolm and young Hantz are back. MTH are you ready for this one?

    • Powell says:

      Wow! Already. For the same number of epis?

    • plainviewsue says:

      I saw the returning list, and I only remembered a few names. And I’m a huge Survivor fan!! I think this more of simple returnees, not fan favorites. Glad Malcolm is back. But I didn’t like Brandon Hantz at all or Phillip Shepherd. Probst keeps saying this season is one of the best, even better than last season. So we shall see……………

    • melthehound says:

      I see the cast has been announced. I don’t know if I’m ready but I’ll take your question as an invite to blog it again. I guess The Amazing Race can’t be far behind. I’ll get a line up of the cast of characters put together within the next week or so for you to post. Young Hantz (Brandon, the ass kisser)… ugh…. I hope he doesn’t last long.

      • Donna says:

        I love Amazing Race!!

      • Pghemtchick says:

        I’ll never forget/forgive how the youngin treated that woman and turned on her, because she tempted him. Hopefully he’s grown up.

        • melthehound says:

          Yes.. He acted like a self righteous dick.

        • TexasTart says:

          Thank you Pghem and MTH that is exactly how I feel about the younger Hantz!!!

          I will watch, but I can’t deal with him, I hope he goes soon. I do not appreciate former players to return unless it’s all former players (All-Stars) against one another. It’s just not fair and there are thousands of people that would like to play, give them a shot at it!
          Isn’t this season coming in very short sucession of the last? I’m not sure MTH had a long enough break! Well, if he’s inclined to recap again, I sure would enjoy it. 😀

    • LaineyLainey says:

      hmmmm….I might watch this one.

  7. AZGirl says:

    On MSNBC website and looking at the red carpet pics from the Critic’s Choice awards. Step and repeat backdrop? SkinnyGirl Cocktails. You have to give Bethenny a lot of credit. She has come a long way in 4 years.

  8. T-Rex says:

    Good Morning! Loved PR this season has been just absolutely terrific week to week, I am totally agreeing with the top 3 picks to go to the finale.

    Scoop: Okay, heard some rumbling on the grapevine so keep the ears out, word is Bravo is peeved at the hoofmaloof and the reunion episodes for season 3. My other source states she has or will be fired and not returning, let’s hope this is correct!

    • Powell says:

      Hmmm. Bravo did not like her accusations thrown out to Lisa. VR was coming and they didn’t want to lose viewers. Adrienne can mess w/the cast all she wants but she’d better not mess w/Bravo’s $$$$$. She’s not going to be back. Thks for the scoop T-Rex.

      • T-Rex says:

        I heard it has to do with this “supposed” gag order from the divorce and the legal paperwork filed against Brandi as well.

        • PJ says:

          I think that would be the real issue Bravo has with her, if this is true.

          • T-Rex says:

            I will bet you dollars to donuts that we will not see TheHoofMaloof and Brandi in the same scenes for anything filmed after Murray’s party. We need to keep a keen eye on the editing because I believe that after the party, the lawsuit was filed and from that moment on Brandi was not to have any interaction with the HoofMaloof. Never could understand why the HoofMaloof did not go on the Bravomandatedtripfornoreason, with just the “too much drama”, it’s because there was this order sent out by HoofMaloof’s lawyers to Brandi. Brandi needs this job and was most certainy going on the mandaded trip so the HoofMaloof got her out to not go, which she didn’t want to go on anyway. Knowing now what we do about the legal documents sent ,things are making more sense, well with the exception of Murray telling her to ignore the order which is the most assinine thing to suggest. HoofMaloff wasn’t at the dinner party with FayEKR which was a total setup to sic FayeKR on Brandi while VileKyle sat by and watched to give HoofMaloof the play by play. HoofMaloof was already drawing up the documents to serve on Brandi during all of this and no way she was going to show up so that Brandi could make the apology.

        • TexasTart says:

          T-Rex, I bet your sources are dead on, I think the legal action that Adrienne took against Bravo sunk her ship with the. The tide had already turned on her with public opinion and with her castmates. It’s hard for me to imagine that she would even want to remain a part of the show, but she does have an enormous ego…so it appears.

      • Great! With all her behavior and lies, hopefully Bravo will see she is too much of a liability. Her true depth of how horrid she can be showed with what she tried to do to Paul during the divorce. (along with everything else). So long MaloofHoof.

        • Boobah says:

          What she accused Paul of made me sick! Such a low-life thing to do. Luckily it seemed to backfire and instead demonstrated her character, or lack thereof.

          • StephieBar says:

            Alex Mccord in her recaps of RHOBH (celebuzz) kind of hinted that, saying that for them to blank out whatever was said, lawyers were called, and when lawyers are called on Bravo by a housewife, Alex said, that will jeopardize her place in the show. I never bought the ‘its too personal to share’ line, I mean, was Luann cheating or what happened with Russel not too personal.

            • Boobah says:

              Ooohhh! I loved Alex’s recaps on Rumorfix but I never saw her on celebuzz. I should check it out.
              I bet Bravo was none too pleased if someone called their attorney!

            • PJ says:

              But someone, maybe Lisa if memory serves, already said on Twitter that lawyers did get involved.

              • T-Rex says:

                Even in the clip for next week’s show they are all going to admit lawyers were involved almost directly after the party Murray and VileKyle threw with the fake friends for the free publicity and info-mercial(showing camille the property on camera give me a break) for his new real estate venture.

                • Called A Princess... says:

                  Bravo never wants to take responsibility for any of the bad energy, its products, release into the world. JMHO.

  9. Crap. Stoopidhousewives is being sued for using photos without permission.

    http://triblive.com/news/adminpage/3274980-74/adams-jersey-pittsburgh#axzz2HgMdF1hh

    “A New Jersey newspaper publisher claims a Pittsburgh woman‘s blog violated its copyright by republishing photos of three premier parties for the “Real Housewives of New Jersey.”

    • Powell says:

      oh boy. Be careful NMD. We don’t want to “go to war” with someone. Thks Renee for “go to war”.

    • melthehound says:

      I think it depends on whose picture you use and how you use it.

    • Donna says:

      She uses other peoples pics and then watermarks them. huh

    • StephieBar says:

      NMD – Definitely be careful these days. Not just bc of photos, but ppl (ahem Leann Rimes, Maloof’s etc) are sue happy bc they can afford too, when I was thinking of starting a blog, I brought my fears up with partner who is a top chartered accountant and business advisor, who handles major mining business (sorry if I sound braggie, I’m a sappy proud girl), he said it is SUPER simple to bypass that – Open a company (is fairly simple and in most states very cheap), have the company own ‘lynnfam’, make sure that the company doesn’t make/ receive or have any assets/ money and then you can write whatever you want, whenever you want, as an employee of the company and than the only thing that can get sued is an assetless/broke company – they cant touch you or your private money, you could walk into a courtroom on behalf of the company and go along with everything they say, sans lawyer and a judgment would go against the company – you can than liquidate the company and do this without spending a DIME, and start all over again setting up another company………………… Sounds like SH is being sued as an individual making her libel, which couldn’t happen if she had just put the website into a company name… okay I’ll get out of your business now 😉
      I just can’t stand how Leann uses her money to scare and bully twitter followers and Maloof will bankrupt herself in suing every media person speaking the truth…

      BE SAFE honey!

    • Pghemtchick says:

      I woke up late and read this here and was like wow! So I start telling my mom, and she cut me off with “That’s old news” read it this morning in the paper. Lol. Guess I should wake up earlier. If only I could find a docket number since it’s civil… Might have to make a trip to the courthouse to investigate this a lil further next week or so <.< stay safe NMD w/pics!

    • melthehound says:

      I really think this is a non issue here (but I’m not a lawyer).. When it comes to show recaps, which is mostly what we do, we are in fact promoting the shows. No one here is claiming photos of their own. I don’t know about the pics that SH RePosted or what she actually did with them.

    • T-Rex says:

      NMD I have the documents if you want me to email them to you. Basically they are claiming that the blog by taking revenue from ads is a money making venture and not a hobby, and mostly they are complaining that the New Jersey Newspaper was not credited with the photos on the website so they saying she violated copyright. I think the fact she watermarked them as well was not good on her part. They also claimed that she had folks that worked for her at the premiers to note who was taking pictures, but that part I don’t think is true. Suffice to say if anyone uses documents or pics they have to make sure that you credit the website or link you got them from.

    • VV says:

      OMG!!!! MTH called this one a long time ago. Jeff, remember? You commented that she should be careful and might get in trouble for using watermark on pictures that didn’t belong to her.

      • melthehound says:

        Yes, I do remember that. I had just spent weeks looking at different types of copyright permissions to see what I could post as backing tracks to my video slide shows.

    • NMD I blog for Wired.com and I can tell you that with our rules, giving credit for the photo is not enough, we can only use images that are public domain or that we have explicit permission to use. Additionally you might want to double check re rules regarding how much of the Housewives blogs you can re-produce. I’ve been a little concerned about how much has been posted, a recap or a commentary is one thing – copying and pasting almost an entire blog could get you in trouble. Also claiming amateur or hobby status is meaningless and doesn’t save a blogger from liability. I don’t want you to get in trouble!

      • T-Rex says:

        Brigid you can use any image that is publicly posted to the internet provided you post the original source of the pictures, most original photos do include the copyright information. As far as the Bravo blogs, Bravo knows that NMD and Lynn posted them, they love that they are reposted here, otherwise they would have received orders to take them down long ago. Lynn posted a warning a year ago about not posting information from websites without acknowledging the source but using a link would be best. NMD so far we haven’t seen anything that would cause an issue with this page, what StoopidHousewives did was not only NOT post the copyright information, did not acknowledge the source of the photos and then added her own watermark to the photos, big NO NO. Again I read the statute and the legal documents that were filed in this case and had SH posted where she got the photos and gave them credit there would be no lawsuit>

        • I’m sorry, but that’s just not true. It’s a common misconception. NO one has the right to repost images without consent regardless of credit. However, most of the time it’s overlooked, tolerated and not a big made into a big deal. But no, you cannot just use another person copyrighted material if they don’t want you to. Giving credit doesn’t make it okay.

      • melthehound says:

        The company that is suing SH specifically states in their terms of use, No reposting or derivative works without permission. I don’t know for a fact but that’s likely what she’s being sued for. We use screen grabs all the time here from shows but they always include the watermark that the network puts on the screen. I don’t know if those fall under the same category though. The blogs that are posted here that are copied and pasted, are not complete. From what I understand, only 33% of them can be used in that form. The rest of what is posted is commentary and even commentary about what was not posted, verbatim. Technically anyone can be sued for reusing images but it depends on how far one is willing to go with legal action. The reason you don’t see more of it I suspect, is the ‘owners’ don’t care enough to pursue it or they may see it as helping them advertise as may be the case with the show recaps with screen grabs. There are some things, based on what I’ve said above, that could be questionable under being derivative works.

        The SH suit has been going on for months with a lot of motions first to let her be sued anonymously and then to change the venue to a closer to home district. I think just now, at this point in time, the actual case may get underway.

        I will say it again though, I’m not a lawyer (We need Empress, Detox, or E-Rizzle here to help explain the legal mumbo jumbo)..

  10. trudie says:

    BB, thanks for the recap of Project Runway. Could not for the life of me figure out what Carolyn meant when she said AR’s dress should “breathe a little bit more.” Emilio’s dress was constructed beautifully. Interesting that they said that the fabric was light because it sure looked like it weighed a ton. I could not get over the fabric Joshua chose for the bottom of his dress. I thought it was hideous. Interesting twist at the end. I am happy with the 3 chosen.

    • LOL trudie…I thought the same thing! What?!? Sometimes the judges comments are so inane. Either said for “impact” or they can’t come up with anything “edgy”, which is a word that is overused too. *Sending Hugs!*

      • Called A Princess... says:

        I feel that some of the judges have questionable taste levels. Issac is an @ss. I get the feeling that he has to control his nastiness for the camera. It does not work. I rarely have liked any of his designs so I really do not like that he gets to judge others, hard work and vision. Heidi Klum seems to think that everything is cheap and she gets into trouble when she is the first judge and does not have comments from other judges to support her tacky juvenile taste. She makes a perfect host, but should never have been a judge. IMO.

        Sending hugs right back to you!

  11. Good Morning! So bloody cold last night and this morning! The next 5 days are supposed to be the coldest in recent years. Making that beef stew and stocked up on Brandy! 😛

    NMD – take care of yourself with the blog. I hate to hear about these publications going after bloggers. We love you and have your back!

    BB- great PR recap. I liked all the dresses…even Josh’s with that floral print, tho I thought if he used a different print it would have worked better. I kind of wish he would have made it through because, though I like Uli’s esthetic, she is such a one trick pony. Josh would have shook up the runway! But, I think this season belongs to Anthony Ryan and hope he wins. Emilio is good too, but a bit inconsistent. Can’t wait to see what they come up with for their collections.

    Happy, happy Friday to everyone! It seemed a long time coming this week.

    “The Hero” blog is still up today. Enjoy!

    • Boobah says:

      Happy friday to you too, Mardrag! What time is dinner? Beef stew sounds perfect! I’ll bring some more brandy so we don’t run out!

      BTW – Have you had a chance to catch Revenge yet??

      • Dinner at 6pm…Brandy at 4pm! 😉 Look forward to seeing you! (wishful thinking!)

        I ran through the epi really fast, was a bit distracted too so I have to watch it again and pay better attention. (busy week!). Going to do that this weekend before the next epi and I will be back to comment at the farm when I do. Missed getting revengey with you guys this week, but just had no time. (holidays bring up a lot of stuff for people, and the after holiday blues get to everybody too, so busy time).

        Many hugs to you dear one!

        • Boobah says:

          I understand. I was just curious as I missed you and your revengy theories! LOL!

          Brandy @ 4pm!?!? Whoops. *slowly pushes the glass away* I got ahead of myself there. Well, it’s Happy Hour somewhere, isn’t it?! LOL!

      • Powell says:

        LOL Boobah. I just told MarDrag to set my place. See you there. 🙂 Oh, i’ll bring desert. How rude of me.

    • Powell says:

      MarDrag leave the light on the porch, set my place at the table & don’t forget the glass for the brandy. Mmmm Mmmm good. 🙂

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Sorry you’re in the deepfreeze! We’re at 54 now and predicted to get to mid-60s by later this afternoon. Nevertheless, beef stew and brandy sound fabulous. I’ll be over after work! Alternate plan, bring the food here to warm yourself up!

    • T-Rex says:

      You are freezing and we her in Florida are beating every heat record on the books going to be like 83 here today, weird running the air full blast in January

    • melthehound says:

      You think? Already?

      • viki55 says:

        Yup, I remember thinking something was going on between the two back when he appeared on her show. I would bet on it. So sad:(

        • melthehound says:

          I’ve never heard of the guy before you pointed him out. If what you suggest is true then it puts a whole new twist on this divorce. It means B is a cheater and deserves absolutely no respect or sympathy. That’s what I think anyway. Then again, I don’t like her to begin with.

        • AZGirl says:

          Viki I remember that scene also. They were having lunch. Bethenny was totally smitten over him. I got a bad feeling watching them together. It was way too soon in the marriage for Bethenny to get all giddy over a guy.

          • Called A Princess... says:

            Sorry but this Matt looks better suited to the Bethenny, she projects to the public. I think that people deserve to be happy. This was a mismatch relationship for the on set between Jason and Bethenny, for whatever reason. People seem to be hunting for a reason to blame Ms. Frankel. The public needs to get a life if this is the best we have to offer. Making affairs up, without much proof? Neither Jason or Bethenny seemed to be getting their emotional needs met, and the marriage broke down. Not so unusual. IMO.

            • VV says:

              The guy is very good looking but he strikes me as a player. I know he owns businesses. I just don’t know if he has Skinny Girl type of money.

              • Called A Princess... says:

                I think Bethenny is still a player too. Even if she is just flirting. They both seem fast to me. Jason is more a homebody. JMHO.

    • Cartwheels says:

      Not new, if the rumors are true, this has been on the media since May last year when a person saw them in a restaurant and they went to a private area.
      It is good that all the team of SGC at Beam is made out of ladies or that would had created another problem. Bethenny also flirted with the snowboarders in Aspen so probably they were or will become her lovers on the press. What about Dr. Amador? maybe he was also part of the ongoing list.
      It is funny how they call it emotional cheating because how do you prove that is not true or true? it is so ambiguous that the only possible purpose is to create doubt.

      I hope I am wrong but I have the feeling that Hoppy’s camp is building a case to request the annullment of the prenup. We will see.

    • VV says:

      Yes, this was discussed on Lynn’s board way back because Bethenny and Matt were very flirtatious on camera. I mentioned his name as well the other day when the split was made public. Rumor has it he was with her in Aspen this past Christmas. I repeat ‘rumors’. We know Bethenny is a cheater as she cheated on her first husband with his best friend. Somebody correct me if this is not true, again I’m going on memory here.

      • Pghemtchick says:

        No. You’re accurate on the cheating she even did it with the Hillfinger and his best friend iirc.

      • Cartwheels says:

        I read on her book that it was when she was already separated and he gave her emotional support so it could had happened before the divorce papers were out, technically that would be called a cheating.

      • VV says:

        VIVAAAAAA LAS DIVAAAAAS!!!

        Thanks for the article. I happened to think Bryn looks just like Jason’s mom. Kids tend to change with time. Thanks for the article May 12. Now we have to figure out when they were filming BEA in Aspen that season.

  12. I Need A Life! says:

    Just know that I won’t watch New York HW if A-diva is back. I will not look at her husband’s face, listen to his voice. His comment on overweight housewives was ridiculous. Some things you can’t take back. I’m sticking to my exercise plan thanks to Ramona…not his bony bride. Oh..and that voice. No.

  13. Cartwheels says:

    Lawsuit again SGM dismissed.

    http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/manhattan/housewife_booze_suit_ko_EZ7co0FG7IfMRNVHdxBhxJ
    ‘Housewife’ booze suit KO’d

    She’ll drink to that!
    A judge has nixed a class-action suit over the ingredients in lovelorn ex-“Real Housewife” Bethenny Frankel’s “Skinnygirl” pre-mixed Margaritas.
    Plaintiff Christopher Rapcynski claimed he and countless others got ripped off because the drink contains low-grade tequila and not the Blue Agave on the label. But Manhattan federal Judge Paul Oetken said that since Rapcynski admitted he’d have bought the booze “whatever the price”— because his wife liked it — the case would focus solely on the “particularities” of his purchase.
    His lawyer said they were eyeing “all our options.”

    • VV says:

      I’m glad it got thrown out. Frivolous law suit.

      • Powell says:

        This was frivolous. When people/companies need to be sued I’m all for it but when people try to sue just cause they want Monet & not to right a wrong I do not agree. Now I hope they have to pay the attorney exorbitant fees for chasing the dollar.

        • Boobah says:

          *passes glass* I would like some Monet. Or is that Moet? Money, moet/monet…Either way, I’d like some please. 😀

        • PJ says:

          We don’t really know what is behind this law suit, it could be that someone just had a line of lowcal alcoholic beverages they wanted to promote and wanted to discredit Betheny’s line.

  14. VV says:

    If there is one person to know all the scoop on Bethenny, is Julie Plake The more I think Bout it the more I’m questioning why she left a thriving new winning business venture. The excuse the she wanted to be close to her boyfriend must have been the perfect cover. Don’t forget when Julie left, Bethenny threw in a couple of digs on her Talking Head about Julie.

    • AZGirl says:

      Julie was smart to get out when she did. Julie continues to be smart by being silent staying off twitter and social media sites. I wonder if Bethenny had Julie sign a non-disclosure/non-compete agreement?

      • VV says:

        The answer to that is ABSOLUTELY SHE DID!

        • PJ says:

          Ad just how do we know she did, where is the proof? It could also be that Julie is just loyal and feels it best to stay out of it.

        • Kansas Girl says:

          It would be smart, and is not that unusual to have employees sign this.

          • TexasTart says:

            Yes, I have employees sign a NDA and we are not famous people nor in the public eye, it’s just an order of business! With Bethenny building a brand and in the public eye, I would feel certain she would have had Julie sign an agreement!

          • Cartwheels says:

            Specially if there is a reality TV being filmed at that especific moment.
            I have no doubt that this is standard procedure and I am sure that Julie, the other assistant and any other person who came on camera would also had to sign a permision and I am sure Bravo has some extra confidenciality protection in place for anybody who is filmed.

      • Contessa says:

        Hi AZ,

        I would bet money that Bethenny had her sign the agreement(s) you cited up above. I always felt there was more to Julie leaving than was suggested. I think you can get only so close to Bethenny and then she zaps you for something and you are standing there thinking did this really happen did she really say that. Bethenny blurs the line of employee/friend and sometimes I think she starts acting out like royalty. I think Bethenny is complicated, much more than we are aware, and I also think the issue with her divorce is much more than we know. I am not going to speculate as I believe no matter what it still takes two to create a marriage as well as a divorce. I think they were both at fault in different ways. I am on the side of Bryn.

    • Cartwheels says:

      She was with Bethenny few weeks before she announced the split , Bethenny said on WWHL that Julie had spent few days with them, she is Bryn’s godmother so I think it is tactful that Julie stays out of it.
      Julie did confirm however the many arguments that Bethenny and Jason had and how it was hard to work aroudn that in their small apartment, just a tidbit that stuck with me and contradicted the image of the perfect Jason for cameras only.
      I think is perfectly possible that Julie just got worn out and with the company growing it got too be too much, not everybody is wired to get to the top. Now Julie is working for a company in PA and is perfectly happy, she can prepare her wedding, be close to her BF and her family. I just don’t see the big plot.
      If there was one, I doubt Bethenny would had been so emotional about letting her go, Bethenny said that she will always consider Julie part of her family and as an employee that would be the best compliment that a boss could ever give me.

    So Melissa is saying that everyone is shooting scenes with Teresa and Wacky Jac-ass is saying nobody will film with her.

    Way to prove you’re a liar Jac-ass!

    Just finished with interviewing about 30 students (my job for the afternoon) and they’re laughing at me for cleaning all the desk surfaces with hand sanitizer. I keep asking if THEY want the flu. Plus, it smells lovely!

  17. Kansas Girl says:

    My friend who ate at Villa Blanca this past summer and met Lisa and Ken (and Giggy) watched the new VR and had this to say: “Scheana was our hostess at Villa Blanca the Sunday we saw Lisa. She was very pretty, and wore the shortest dress that barely covered her butt. I wondered how she picked up a dropped fork! I was a little surprised Lisa allowed that kind of attire and now I know she encourages it! Don’t get me wrong…she looked cute enough and very summery, just seemed more appropriate for a cocktail setting than lunch. My impression of her was that she was polite but NOT very bright. Like an airhead, tho she was nice to us. I thought seating people was maxing out her capabilities. I also thought she was probably working there hoping to be discovered as the next “it” girl. She had a very nice smile and flashed beautiful teeth. I guess we were there before she was moved over to Sur.” They had attempted to eat at Sur the day they were leaving, but it was closed, so she could report on Sur too: “Actually in all honestly Sur looks a little run down. We peeked into the outside patio and it doesn’t look as nice as it appears on TV. In fact as we drove up, (husband) already said he didn’t like this location as well and thought we should go back to Villa. The menu at Sur was not as expensive as Villa but neither were out of line.”

    Check out the latest blog on Tamara Tattles……….wow.

    • VV says:

      I sense the Manzos are involved ‘somehow’ on the SH lawsuit. Chris Manzo hash tagged the real name of SH blogger on a tweet Today.

      Just the thought of having to watch those idiot kids on RHONJ makes me not want to watch RHONJ this season

    • Pghemtchick says:

      I’m really sickened and saddened by this blog. Let the woman f$&@&$! Rest in peace already. Of course Lynn’s “flying monkeys” we’re going to go hurt SH. Please iirc, SH wasn’t even the most “hated” blogger out there it was Iguana. So the theory gets weaker and weaker. The shame in blaming physical violence from the people here over someone possibly not even from here calling her a soulless c. Sorry, but they have to keep using Lynn because they lack the family, talent, and base that we have here. Pathetic.

      • VV says:

        Wow. It’s a new blog! . I thought she was referring to the SH lawsuit blog from earlier.
        Pathetic. No words.

    • trudie says:

      Tamara’s comments about those of us who post here are interesting. We are a very mean bunch!

      • Pghemtchick says:

        Someone can help my memory here, but didn’t Tamara and Lynn have a following out over trademarks?

        • VV says:

          Yes, she was posting here and got upset over some pics of KZ wedding. She claimed Lynn stole from her. IIRC. I never liked her because she went straight to SH and Iguana find the other Lynn haters with her gossip.

          • VV says:

            Shortly after that SH started to watermark the pics on her site.

          • melthehound says:

            Lynn reposted some pictures that she claimed SHE owned (TT, as if she had been at KimZ’s wedding).. Whether she did or not, I have no idea but I remember helping her learn to watermark her own photos if she was so concerned about it. She made a huge stink about it and naturally, people suggested she calm down. She left in kind of a huff and of course, we are the haters. At least I know I am 😉

            • Noelle says:

              TO ALL,
              Herein lies the problem:
              TT’s friend took those pictures and gave them to Tamara (exclusive rights) to use on HER blog. Tamara watermarked them and Lynn did post them (along with TT’s watermark, bottom L corner) without giving TT credit.
              TT was angry and I didn’t blame her.
              She tried to go about it amicably but was then made fun of, and trashed beyond belief.
              It is what it is and Lynn was just as wrong then as Tamara is NOW!!
              IMHO>

                  Same for SH, TT, and the rest.
