Melissa Gorga tweets about Hair Appointment when Joey is in the Hospital and Other News by NoMoreDrama
Jeesh Melissa Gorga, do you really need to tweet about your hair being done when Joey is in the hospital with a bad case of the flu? Where in the world is your common sense?? You should at least PRETEND to care about your husband (even if most of us think he is one of the yuckiest househusbands out there). I know it’s all about press coverage, but I can’t imagine Joey will be happy about RadarOnline covering this story. PS in case you are worried about Joey – he was tweeting from the hospital so I think he’s on the mend. Wash your hands! Use lots of hand sanitizer, and stay safe please!!
Joe Gorga on the 10th of January: “I’m dying over here in the hospital this flu kicked my ass. Not a word or movement from Tarzan in 4 days
Melissa’s tweet on the 11th of January: “Just left
@BottegaSB salon in Cedar grove.. Seriously the best blowout around.”
Monday’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will have Brandi Glanville telling the girls that she’s being sued by Adrienne and Paul over spilling their secret. This is something Brandi let us know on twitter in mid-December. I’m beginning to think this whole secret thing was about ratings. The reason I think this is a small little sentence at the end of an article by LALate. “Since taping has ended, Brandi has told news that her dispute with Adrienne has been resolved. No lawsuit was filed. And Maloof later divorced Nassif.” Hearing from a lawyer and having a lawsuit filed against you are two very different things.
As for the secret – I think the answer is in this article that Wetpaint published in November. The articles describes a scene that we’re supposed to see on the show where Adrienne and Brandi sit down to air their differences, Brandi mentions that Adrienne and Paul are having marital problems, Adrienne grows furious because she thought the topic would be off limits, loses it with producers, storms out, and threatens to quit the show.
My guess is the “Big Secret” was the divorce. Adrienne and Paul blew it by going public with their divorce in August, but Bravo since many viewers don’t read the blogs or follow the couple on-line, they are probably oblivious to all of that. Those of us that follow every little detail are probably over thinking the whole thing. My two cents.
Richie Wakile threatens bloggers. Richie Wakile – husband of Kathy Wakile from the Real Housewives of New Jersey went on a twitter tear last night and began to threaten bloggers. He tweeted: “The ASSHOLE bloggers are going to go down 1 by 1 hopefully we all know who’s going to next! So I hope you all start blogging the TRUTH!”
Then “All shit head haters are coming out again! Come on you fake ass parasites show your selfs! Cowards with the fake pictures!” which was likely directed at “anonymous” twitter accounts that were sending him nasty tweets. He’s well known as a tweet deleter – and I couldn’t find much on his timeline this morning. Not that I looked very hard.
Presumably Richie Wakile reference to “bloggers going down” was related to the lawsuit against stoopidhousewives for copyright infringement. The lawsuit has nothing to do with the blogger expressing her opinion or using an pseudonym so Richie’s comments seem very off base. In fact her blog is very much up and running.
I want to thank everyone for their advice on how to ensure this blog doesn’t violate any copyright infringements. I’m taking your advice seriously.
As for Richie – it’s my opinion that he needs to stay off twitter (especially on Friday nights – I’m noticing a correlation between twitter rants and Friday nights) because he really shouldn’t make blanket threats like that. If he has in issue with an individual blogger he should be man enough to address her/him directly. Know that!

I’m going to dispense with all of the blogs’ well wishings of “Happy New Year” to us all… I’m sure you’ll be glad to know that the housewives had a very nice holiday season, that they are looking forward to 2013, and they hope that it brings many wonderful things. Blah… blah… blah…. BTW… there are no blogs posted yet from Kim, Kyle or Camille.
“I’m sure one of the first things you notice in this episode was my reluctance to put my handbag on the floor! This comes from my Irish background; we tend to be extremely superstitious and we believe putting your bag on the floor could bring bad luck.”
Dies laffin’… I totally understand people being superstitious – but surely there is a better reason for not putting your purse on the floor – like because floors can be icky for those absurdly expensive Louis Vuitton purses or perhaps so that no one steals your nice Chanel bag. The Martyr then tells us about her new projects and stuff – and I refuse to give her the airtime.
“I needed to take a step back from the drama this episode. It’s best to give yourself time and distance from a difficult situation in order to gain perspective.”
You don’t really think that we believe that you took any time off from the drama this episode, my dear – you were very, very busy working behind the scenes and setting the stage for others to do your dirty work. You were busy having your lawyers draw up paperwork to sue your fellow cast member and to issue various cease and desist orders. Then you were busy arming your conveniently new “bestie” Faye for battle against Brandi. You gave Faye information through your crocodile tears knowing she would unabashedly unleash her venom on Brandi. You couldn’t even resist the urge to plant the thought in Faye for her to suggest that Brandi send you “I’m sorry” flowers – I actually think you must have gargantuan flower envy from the ones you sent to Lisa. By the way, your parade float of a flower arrangement didn’t win anything this year at the Pasadena Rose Parade… better luck next year!
“I’m such a crybaby!!! This episode brought a whole lot of tears for me. Since my divorce I have taught myself to try and not show my vulnerable side to people, because I needed to be strong for the sake of my children, friends, and family.”
I’m really not a fan of the thought process that crying somehow equals weakness. I actually think it takes a lot of strength to demonstrate vulnerability. I understand that you may want to act in a certain way around children so that you don’t unnecessarily worry them – but they probably know something’s wrong anyway, and it may be prudent to be age appropriately honest with them to a certain extent. I admit there are times that you may not want a specific someone to have the satisfaction of seeing your vulnerability… but other than that – really, who among your friends and family do you feel pressure to appear to be “strong”? At the age of 24, I was quietly crying as we were walking to the chapel where the memorial service was being held for my mom, and my aunt actually said to me, “You’ve got to be strong – you need to keep a stiff upper lip.” I turned to her and said, “Who do I need to be strong for? She was MY mother… I can cry if I want to!” (Yes, you can all go ahead and sing the song, “it’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to”… which is actually a healthier concept in my opinion.) Sorry… we now can continue with our regularly scheduled snarking… lol… Brandi explains that she left the dinner party because she wasn’t feeling comfortable and she didn’t want to argue with Faye. It was a smart move – because it was not going to get any better with the morally corrupt one in the midst of things.
I hid my face when I went to leave because I don’t like it when people see me cry. For some reason I have always been this way. I feel like I have to stay strong for everyone around me because I emotionally take care of so many people in my life and don’t want anyone worrying about me.
Ehhh… let a couple of people in so you can be loved and supported, Brandi. It’s not your job to support the weight of the world on your shoulders. Again, other than your children – who do you need to “stay strong” for? I cannot think of a single person in my life that I want them to feel like they need to stay strong for me. I want them to be real… too often we all pretend that everything is going wonderfully well for us – and probably so much more in Beverly Hills where it’s especially important to some people to keep up appearances. Perhaps it’s time for people to reach out to you, Brandi… and tangibly show they support you and love you. Sometimes we miss out on opportunities to “weep with those who are weeping; and rejoice with those who are rejoicing” because we don’t know the whole truth about what others are going through.
“When Kyle invited Marisa for yoga it was nice to see Marisa make her own decisions and opinions about us women and the dinner party. I think Kyle assumed because they knew each other previously that Marisa would just be another one of Kyle’s many “yes people.” Marisa is not that girl, thank God.”
Giggles. Yeah, I’m liking Marisa thus far… I’m guardedly optimistic. Brandi continues on telling how logistically awkward it was for her whenever she dines at Lisa’s restaurant because staff knows they need to seat Brandi in a Scheana-free zone. This need for special arrangements has made Brandi feel bad for Lisa and uncomfortable in general. So, after careful consideration, she decided to meet with the mistress.
“I have mourned my 13 year relationship to Eddie at this point. He is remarried and I am in a great place in my life. That said, hearing details of the time she spent with Eddie while we were married and I was pregnant just seemed cruel and unnecessary. I believe she knew the entire time that he was married with a family. I believe it is and was just as much Eddie’s fault as hers, and I truly hope she’s learned a big lesson from her past mistakes and realizes cheating doesn’t just hurt one person — but friends and entire families as well. I have seen her a few times since our sit down and I always say, “Hello. . .get me some coffee.” JK!”
I think you handled yourself well at the summit meeting. However, I think you weren’t prepared for some of the information Scheana gave to you – specifically about how often she saw your husband, the kind of relationship they really had, and who all knew about it. It looked like it reopened wounds that had been healing… but hopefully, they will heal even better now. I’ve got to say that you made me totally laff at the “get me some coffee” comment – though – I don’t know that I would trust the mistress in giving me anything that I consume. I guess I’ve watched “Snapped” too many times.
WARNING: I’m cranky at Lisa at the moment. I’m not used to feeling snarky towards her – so I’m not sure where this will go… but you’ve been given fair warning… lol… After the Brandi/Faye dinner fiasco, Lisa talks about how glad she was that she chose to meet with Adrienne alone rather than in a group situation hosted by Kyle.
“I recall feeling rather irritated at Faye’s attitude, but also powerless to defend Brandi. I couldn’t justify the fact that Brandi had exposed something so personal. I was disgusted quite frankly at Faye rubbing her hands in glee saying I relish in winding Brandi up, and incite situations then step away from them. On the contrary, I spend a good deal more time placating her, and calming her down. I object to that, but it begs the question where she has gleaned this information, as I have spent little, if any time, in the company of Faye and Brandi together.”
Most would agree that to share very private information in a public setting is just plain wrong. Brandi was obviously wrong to do so – and has apologized for it. However, we didn’t see people question the validity of the information – or anything remotely like that…therefore it seems like everyone had at least heard rumors about the subject before Brandi uttered a word – which means that every single one of them too, had spoken about the subject among others. Truly, if so many people already knew about it – how could you even classify it as private at that point? It may be a private matter that is publically known. I haven’t even seen a “how in heck did Brandi find out about that” type of conjecture – nor has Lisa gotten angry at Brandi for telling her something that she alone was privy to about Adrienne by being good friends with her for so many years or from living across the street from her. If this was such highly personal information, why was Kyle so quick to tell Faye? Other than the obvious ploy by Kyle to try to get Faye to be a housewife and actually set this dinner up to provide an opportunity for Faye to demonstrate to Bravo that she can and will bring drama wherever she goes.
“I left the table, then unbeknownst to me, Brandi was outside in tears. I noticed she left and urged Kyle to check on her, when I went outside I was deeply saddened to see Brandi desolate, crying. I don’t want to constantly battle with these women. Brandi had said. . .by her own admission. . .that she was regretful. I knew that, contrary to what Kyle was saying to Marisa, that Brandi was sincere.”
Lisa, why didn’t you go after Brandi when she first left instead of telling Kyle to do so? I understand that it was Kyle’s house – but don’t you think Brandi would want to talk to you rather than to Kyle? That was just weird to me.
“And on it goes, Kyle saying that we behave like kids at elementary school. Last week we were pitbulls. I can’t ever remember behaving like either of those. However I do recall something similar to a pitbull at her dining table.”
Yes, Faye smelled blood and attacked. And most of you just sat there, watched it happen, and said very little. Marisa, the surprise entry – actually did better at speaking to the subject at hand while not even knowing much about it at the time. Lisa, you really could and should have said more, in my opinion. You could have absolutely acknowledged that Brandi shouldn’t have said what she said and then you could have attempted to stop the dogfight.
“Brandi and I meet up. I am hesitant to bring up the situation with Scheana, but many times they have crossed paths and all of us decided, it would be mutually beneficial to bring this awkward situation to fruition. For a more expanded view on this check out my blog on Vanderpump Rules.”
Lisa, Lisa, Lisa… as I watched the advertisements for the upcoming premier of “Vanderpump Rules” I was disheartened to hear you differentiate between your two restaurants by saying “Villa Blanca is where you take your wife; Sur is where you take your mistress.” That advertising tagline is just cheap and creepy. If you wanted to communicate Sur as being sexy and private – there are a bazillion ways to do that without using the “mistress” reference. By now, we all know that while Brandi was married to Eddy Cibrian and was pregnant with their 2ndchild that he cheated on Brandi with Scheana, a member of Lisa’s wait staff. You and Bravo exploited that storyline to encourage Brandi to meet with Scheana to clear the air between them because things were awkward when Brandi visited your restaurant. Then, when you used their face-to-face summit meeting at Sur as a promotional segue into “Vanderpump Rules” – well, it actually nauseated me. Brandi was DEVASTATED by her husband’s cheating on her – and yet you actually encouraged her to do a face-to-face with his mistress at the very same restaurant that YOU actively promote to be a place that’s great for cheaters to come and dine? Are you freaking kidding me? I wonder if Scheana is costing you some business – your other staff seem to have issues with her. Why don’t you have issues with her? I dunno… if she’s willing to have an ongoing affair with a married man, who knows what else she’s willing to do? I get that she’s friends with your daughter – but your daughter doesn’t work there, does she? Certainly there are other restaurants Scheana could work at, no? You could have given her a good recommendation… Heck, you could have even made a couple of calls to your restaurant friends and then sent her on her merry home-wreaking way. Lisa, I am just so disappointed in your actions and inactions.
“I hope to see more positive things from Taylor because she seems constantly plagued by drama and frankly that one-dimensional characterization is just getting old.”
You’re tired of it already? Heck, try living through 3 seasons of it…
“It was fun to do yoga with Kyle. I remember leaving the dinner very surprised at all the conflict that had developed in the past few months, so it was nice to see Kyle under more relaxed circumstances. I was trying to listen to Kyle and process what she was saying but found it hard to focus on all of the accusations and suppositions that didn’t involve me. I like to have fun and so does Kyle. I know it is hard for Kyle to be in the middle of all the drama, she is much more in her element when she is having a good time.”
Ummm… Evidently, you haven’t met our Kyle. Marisa meet Kyle… lover of all things drama.
“I don’t know about you but I was very uncomfortable watching Brandi meet with Scheana. I could never do that in a million years! I thought it was very nice of Lisa to help Brandi attain closure on the situation by setting up the meeting. I felt that clearly illustrated that Lisa is a good friend to Brandi. Brandi was able to get answers from the horse’s mouth and hopefully move past some of the pain this has caused her by closing that chapter for good.”
I agree it was closure… it was sad that it seems like the affair was even worse than Brandi even knew. Ouch!
“I know it may seem a bit wacky to have a spiritual advisor cleanse my house and give me her advice regarding legal matters, but, I was willing to do almost anything from the normal to the paranormal to try and calm my anxiety about it all.”
There is good reason for you to be anxious. I wonder just how you sleep at night.
“Alisha was correct and we did settle the lawsuit. I had never been in litigation before and facing a public company on my own was scary as hell. To learn that they wanted my wedding ring to settle was heart-wrenching. 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.”
Your wedding ring is a “happy memento?” Really? Perhaps the money you would have gotten from selling your wedding ring would have been nice for your daughter… but ummm… the ring itself? Not so much… Taylor goes on to talk about doing the right thing and settling the lawsuit and giving up her ring. What choice did she really have? She names her lawyers and thanks them… blah… blah… blah… BTW…Did you know they’re her heroes? I bet they’re the wind beneath her wings, too!
“Time to celebrate! It was important for me to share my settlement with Kyle, Lisa, Ken, and Mauricio because they had been there witnessing the stress and encouraging me throughout the months following the tragedy. I wanted them to know that one more piece of the mess I was handling had come to a close and that there was light at the end of my dark tunnel. John worked tirelessly coordinating my different attorneys and advising me through all the difficulties. I wanted him to be there to thank him and share in the celebration dinner. He suffered through many difficult phone calls and lots of tears and I will always be indebted to him for his patience and advice.”
Yes, it’s always time to celebrate when you successfully break up a marriage, no?
“In looking back, I learned a lot through the process mostly about the resilience of people facing overwhelming odds. We are tougher than we think we are when we are backed against a wall.”
My heart goes out to Kennedy. I hope that Taylor starts to surround herself with quality people who can actually be role models to Kennedy… the adults in her little life are no prize at this point.

“Thank you for all your comments and well wishes. The holiday season was a very different experience for our family this year as I was stuck to my IV pole three times a day battling endless antibiotics for Lymes disease. The good thing was, I had no stress running around buying unneeded gifts for everyone but instead really enjoyed the love and intimacy of sitting around the fire, focusing on my turkey, and watching movies with my family and close friends. David took the kids to serve meals to the homeless at the midnight mission in downtown L.A. and to them it was our best Christmas ever. I know it sounds cliché, but I guess life throws us what we can handle after all.”
I gotta say that I love that David took the kids to serve meals to the homeless… it’s been too long since I volunteered at a soup kitchen… I need to change that. Hopefully, we’ll all serve others more than just at Christmastime.
“Anyway, on to the scoop of the day — more drama in Beverly Hills! Again, this blog is only meant to give my perspective but not to be judgmental in any way.”
Oh Yo (my favorite name for Yolanda, and I can call her that because we’re besties, you know), where’s the fun in not being judgmental?
“Kyle’s dinner party seems so uncomfortable for everyone. The minute Faye starts talking I just want to push the fast forward button. Every word that comes out of her mouth is so abrasive and feels like a violation, because as far as I know, she seems to be of no importance in this group besides being Kyle’s best friend. I don’t feel her opinion to be inspiring or motivating in any way. She is saying Lisa and Brandi are working together, but to me it seems obvious that if anyone is “working together” it’s Kyle, Faye, and Adrienne. Packs of wolves work together, girlfriends shouldn’t. It’s OK to have an opinion, but it’s not OK to be rude.”
Laffing that you inferred that Kyle, Faye and Adrienne are a pack of wolves. Yeah, we want to push the fast forward button, too. If Faye becomes more of a part of the show, the viewers will be doing much more than just pushing the fast forward button – we’ll stop watching the show altogether.
“Kyle says “my girlfriends are like my sisters.” Hmm, somehow I am not feeling a true sisterhood here. If my best friend went off on anyone at a dinner party I was hosting, I would politely interfere and put an end to it. IMMEDIATELY!”
Laffs and laffs… yes, and you’d probably have them sing, “Oh, When the Saints Go Marching In” as they march right out the door.
“I am truly sorry for all Taylor has gone through. Dealing with the litigation stuff is tough, but when you sign your name on the dotted line of a legal document for your husband’s business dealings, I assume you must know what you are committing to. I would much prefer to clear my name than to have a diamond ring or a couple of Hermes bags in my closet.”
Yeah, but she really didn’t clear her name, did she? At least not in my book… She just settled the lawsuit and gave up her ring and a couple of fake bags. I wonder what’s worse to her… the fleecing of people out of lots of money or the revealing that her expensive bags were actually fake?
“I am excited for you to finally meet the rest of my gang. You all know Gigi and now get to see Bella and Anwar. Just a regular school day in our household. After school sports are big in our family but I like to keep a tight ship and serve dinner at 6:30 every night, so even if I have to go out with my husband after, at least I had that important time with the kids and I don’t feel torn between the two. I believe dinnertime is a very important time with the family; it’s a time to reconnect, communicate, and to find out what the kids’ day was like. We eat, we talk, and sometimes have big debates. David’s nightly question is always, “What did you learn in school today?” He expects a detailed answer, and the kids have learned how to give him one. When everyone puts their dishes away, it always leaves me with a sense of accomplishment, love, and togetherness.”
Wow… a family that can have a set dinnertime? Yo really does seem to love to demonstrate that they have a wonderfully perfect family life – and I truly hope that it’s true. We’ve just seen so many of these Housewife families pretend to be something that they’re not.
“Brandi meeting Sheana is a whole subject on its own… Where do I even begin? I am not very tolerant when it comes to this subject. If it were me, I probably would have brought a picture of a family portrait and served it to her for lunch. Maybe that visual will stay ingrained in her brain and make her think twice the next time around. I don’t buy young and stupid, I realize it takes two, but in this town there’s 100,000 wannabes that will sleep with your husband for a Chanel bag! So it’s really a conscious choice made by two people.”
Yeah, they’ll sleep with your husband for a lot less than a Chanel bag…
“Sorry but Sheana does not seem to have a moral compass and needs to go home to her mom to get re-educated about what’s right and wrong. At the end of the day Brandi is better off because she is a good woman, she will meet the real love of her life soon and find happiness while her ex will be paying the dues of karma for a long time to come!”
To be “reeducated” infers that you were actually previously educated. I was interested in what Yo would say about this whole thing since allegedly, she had previously been in a similar situation. It looks like Yo believes that since she was able to find the love of her life after all the crap she went through that she is confident Brandi will, too.
“It was really interesting watching Paul and Adrienne together in his office. Their body language certainly looks like the end is near… But only the upcoming episodes will be able to tell you about that so stayed tuned.”
Lol… stay tuned to see how Paul and Adrienne’s marriage unravels. In a sick way, I’ve got to confess that I’m curious about watching it – although, arguably, their marriage has been in trouble for a very long time based on what I see on the show. I really hope those kids come out okay…
