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 #Pain

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!

Cast Blogs Blogged by Stars99

(Note from NMD – excerpts from original cast blogs are in italics and quote marks.  Full Bravo cast blogs can be found on http://www.bravo.com)

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.

Adrienne Maloof

“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!

Brandi Glanville

“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.

Lisa Vanderpump

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.

Marisa Zanuck

“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!

 Taylor Armstrong

“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.

Yolanda H. Foster

“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…

  1. TexasTart says:

    Good Morning!
    Thank you NMD, Stars99 and BB for the blog today. 😀

  2. Mel says:

    I think it is disgusting that their is no integrity amongst bloggers. The blogger that broke that story about the lawsuit included real housewives name on the story. She could have easily deleted that part but left it there on purpose.

    The other blogger is using this story to increase page views and popularity of her blog. Right after Richie made his idiotic tweet the blogger tweet sweet nothings at him and was so far up his ass and greg benetts ass they probably have constipation. Then the blogger kept repeating that none of the nj cast was responsible for the story per her insider (eyeroll). My theory is she is using the story to elevate her blog and play nicey nice with Jersey cast (by slaying their villian) in order to get future scoop/inteviews with them in the future. Caroline and Chris tweeted th bloggers name yesterday as well…….you guys should see how this looser blogger is enjoying this. This could easily be her one day….and she may not have all the resources that stoopidhousewives has to fight it. All I know Karma is a biatch.

    Glad stoopidhousewives is paying them no mind and her website is up and running storys around the clock. Anyone can sue you know a days…just ask Richie and Joe Gorga the amount of lawsuits hey have under their belt. lol.

    • Noelle says:

      Missed you Mel.

    • VV says:

      Exactly! Increasing traffic that is all. Totally disgusting.

      • Called A Princess... says:

        The courts, and a verdict will have to decide whether the lawsuit is right or wrong. I am not sure how wrong it is to hype ones blog site. I wish that Lynn’s name would have been let out of it but other bloggers have proven that stepping on someones grave can raise the sites profile for a day or two. I am not sure how it can possibly be worth it, in the end. JMHO.

  3. AZGirl says:

    Good morning everyone! Thank you NMD, Stars and BB! Happy Birthday Cakes!
    Freaking Freezing here in AZ. About 25 degrees outside right now. Heat pump is cranking away. I have to say I feel bad for the Street Eats Event planners up in Scottsdale. I am sure they are all freezing trying to get ready for the 11 a.m. opening.

    I am loving Marisa and Yolanda. They tell it like it is. Taylor adoration for John is enough to make me vomit. Hell, once Taylor finds out how much money his wife got in the divorce settlement and he is broke she will be off to greener pastures. Greener pastures in Maury and Kyles pool house.

    • Powell says:

      AZGirl Street Eats probably had no idea the weather would change as it has. Are you going?

      Taylor is a trip. What has happened to the “career” she alluded to having in her tag line S1. She’ll probably stick it out w/him just to make sure the earning potential is still there.

      • AZGirl says:

        Maybe tomorrow. I really do feel bad for the food truck people. It is now 10 a.m. and barely 35 degrees outside. Sun is out but man it is really cold.

  4. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Good Morning-great blog today…Starzy I love your BH blog re-caps-they are fab!!!
    This whole thing with Scheana is crazy. Lisa setting up that meeting as if it were such a great idea was just crap. Imagine if Sheana worked for Kyle and Kyle tried to set up a meeting between her and Brandi??? People would be blowing their gaskets left and right!!! Queen Vanderpump sets it up and its like the best idea EVER!! I don’t get it!! Lisa used Brandi to promote her show-there is no ifs ands or buts about it. Friends shouldn’t sue friends and friends shouldn’t use friends!!
    Lisa saying the SUR is where you take your mistress is just gross. How nice of Lisa to create a place where cheaters can take their Ho’s for a nice private drink!! -I wonder why Brandi doesn’t have a problem with it???
    I wondered why Lisa just didn’t fire Sheana(after she found out who she was) and just be done with it-but then I saw that there would be a sit-down and it all made sense. Brandi is a good little Bravo employee to agree to that crap-hope she is happy with the out come. I know I wouldn’t want to hear all that sh*t about my husband while the cameras are rolling but when you sell you soul for the HW’s title I guess that’s what you gotta do!!! Brandi was dying to be a full fledged “Housewife” and not a “friend of” and maybe this is why Bravo said yes.
    I don’t get why Yolanda has so much to say in her blog-yet she is never on the show”? Why did we need to see her cook dinner? If I wanted to see a Mom feed her kids I would put a mirror in my kitchen and watch myself nightly!! They need to either step it up with her or cut her loose!!!

    • Lisa Renee says:

      Good Morning Jill, my my my you have been on fire this week & glad to see today is no different. I will say this, I thought it was just me who had a problem with the tagline for SUR & that it is where you bring your mistress. Thought I might be too sensitive or beyond PCness. It just rubs me the wrong way. Hope you & the family are well, Lisa

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Hey Lisa-This BH season is on my nerves and I gotta get over it!!!
        all is well with me and the family-my husband took Annabelle and Maggie skiing for the weekend so i have some time to myself…very strange feeling being alone in my house. I love it and hate it at the same time!! Hope all is well with you and yours!!!

        • Lisa Renee says:

          Jill, how nice & brave (he is a fireman) of the hubs to take both girls & give you some down time. Im in the same boat, love being alone but strange & not sure how to feel. Since you have years ahead of you before the girls are in HS enjoy this quiet time. Lisa

        • Kansas Girl says:

          I’m single and always alone at home, so I’m always taken aback when people relish alone time. I relish company and being with others!

          My fireman friend has talked about how difficult it is to have family time with the 24 on and 48 off schedule, as part of the off time is catching up on sleep. Go Mr. Jill! I’m sure the girls are having a blast, and daddy too.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        LR and Jill: Yes, that tagline is beyond annoying. It’s an insult to marriage, families, and women in general. If you think about it, It’s insulting to the wives out there AND TO the mistresses!!! I’m not hating VRules, yet, though.

        JNNTJ – great post, I love the part about “If I wanted to see a mom…” cute. I would actually watch you cooking dinner!!!! 🙂

        • Called A Princess... says:

          LOL…I think if people want a moral district then possibly Beverly Hills and Hollywood is not the address. It can be both user friendly and sleazy, and at the same time. I have and will always consider Lisa to be a user/gangster in a tiara. JMHO.

    • LA Debra says:

      I don’t mind watching Yolanda cook dinner, and talk with her children and husband. And I like reading her take on the others on the show. In fact if it was a choice for me of watching that pit bull b!tch Faker Reznick and her handler VyleKyle or a family dinner in a villa by the sea – hands down I pick the dinner.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Its not that I mind seeing Yolanda do that-its more like “whats the big whoop?”…we all cook dinner and spend time with our families-I want to see things that I don’t do everyday!!! Show her riding a horse or picking lemons off her bazillion lemon tress…but making dinner is not an EVENT…unless its not something SHE does everyday!!!

        • Kansas Girl says:

          But I love the contrast between her and the others. We see her doing such normal stuff. When do we ever hear of Taylor, Kyle or Adrienne sitting down with kids and discussing life? (Sure Kyle plays with the littlest, but it’s always just camera friendly silliness.)

          I’m fascinated with how regimented Yo’s life seems to be. She talks so much about her standards. Makes me wonder how David ever fit himself into this routine, and also makes me think he runs really hard to be a part of her life. What’s that about how the man needs to love more or work harder at the marriage to keep it alive? She really rules the roost. So amusing to watch!

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Great observations, KGirl. It’s not that hard to keep your man in line…well, it depends on the man, I guess. LOL!!! Yolanda does seem to rule THAT roost, right??? LOL! I like that…I like to think I rule my roost. If not rule the roost, I think I do set the tone in my family. We women have a lot of power in our families (if we’re lucky)!!!

          • Realhousewifeva says:

            Personally I’m sick of Yolanda and David foster showing how ‘perfect’ they are and that his wife *gasp* cooks, or showing how wonderfully rich they are. She adds nothing to this show, to me.

            • Amber...Real Wife says:

              Quiet as it’s kept, David PROBABLY hasn’t had a family member i. e. Mom or Wife cook for him in MANY years! The vision of his lovely wife doing the simple task of ‘cooking’ him a meal has the man dumbfounded. He’s known for being a marrying man and the women he married went in and married the uber rich lifestyle. Butlers, Maids, Chefs & Nannies are the norm and they must’ve taken full advantage of it. So when the Dutch Miss goes to plant or pick lemons and cooks a meal or spends family time with the kids DavidFoster is in awe. Hope it lasts forever.

        • Powell says:

          They are wealthy & I think they want us to see that beyond that they are a typical family at that time in the evening. If they show it every week, then yeah that’s boring.

    • Powell says:

      JNNTJ Brandi got paid to be on that epi & I bet she’ll be on more. She needs the money. So I don’t think Lisa used Brandi, it was mutually beneficial. Did brandi want to sit down w/Sheana? No. But she got to get stuff off of her chest also.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        …and it didn’t hurt that Eddie was painted in a less than stellar light AGAIN. LeAnn couldn’t have been too happy about that scene. Which doesn’t bother me at all.

        • Called A Princess... says:

          I do not like Ski-na at all. I think she tried to use Eddie to make a name for herself. Any national attention she gets now is do to a notorious liaison not unlike Faye Resnick. I would have thought that Lisa would have been smart enough to steer clear of that PR quagmire. This has the stench of a Andy/Bravo schemed wretched story line, to me. JMHO.

  5. Mel says:

    Jill…no not THAT Jill
    I think that sit down was a win win siuation for both Lisa and Brandi. The sympathy tour has been in full blast about r cheating husband since she first appeared on the show. Brandi tooks about eddie’s cheating almost on a daily bases it seems. The sit down ties to Brandi’s storyline, gets her more airtime, and she can play the scorned sad ex wife who now has “strength and courage” etc. So in essence Lisa get’s her transition to new show and Brandi gets airtime and continues to play on sympathy card. IT makes perfect sense. Scheanna was working at Villa Blanca way before Brandi got on the show….for Bravo not to capatilize on that would be a sin lol.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Bravo never misses an opportunity to capabilities on such things!!!

    • StephieBar says:

      Good morning ladies,

      I think Brandi did it as a favour to Lisa, Lisa needed some PR and ties to get Vanderpump Rules started and it was a scripted scene – either way the waitress/ star f*cker should be friends with Porsha, RHOA, bc she is dum dum too.
      I actually went back and read her access hollywood interview, she lied to Brandi on her didn’t know anything sympathy tour.

      NMD – I think ”the secret” is still the surrogacy, otherwise bravo would have been able to air it, some law about ppl’s medical history means they couldn’t air it and Adrienne did indeed get the lawyers involved. It’s not like Bravo can get sued if they air gossip, if they’re not saying the gossip, they have no duty of care to check it’s real, but a medical history, AM can play hard ball with, and she did.

      The cover up is always bigger than the crime (watergate).

      Brandi herself said what she said was not that huge and Taylor is about to say as much in the next episode.

      I think the legal papers Brandi got was a C&D, C&D’s to just go away, if you don’t continue doing what they asked you to cease.

      .

    • LaineyLainey says:

      True, Mel. Win/win all the way around for the parties involved. Well maybe not a win/win for the Cibrian’s.

    Great blogs, again. I love your take on Yo, Stars.

  7. plainviewsue says:

    As someone who has been at the other end of a twitter rant from that vile piece of garbage Richie Waikile, I was disgusted to see the tweets he sent and deleted out last night. He is such an idiot. He things if he deletes them they are gone. But everyone has them on their phones.

    It is one thing to be upset with some one and not like what they tweeted. But to tweet such disgusting comments to women, calling them ugly, cursing them out. Horrible human being.

  8. RealHousewifeVA says:

    I went to the Tamaratattles blog to read about the SH lawsuit and she has a new post about Lynnnchicago members, saying this at the end:

    “Frankly, I think the judge underestimated the crazy that is the LynnNChicago followers. We all have differing opinions on Stoopidhousewives. Regardless of what yours are, I can assure you that the followers of LynnNChicago trolled and harassed not only RHONY cast members but other bloggers who disagreed with their points of view. It does not surprise me that they would be brought up in court. Were I the judge on the case, I would have granted SH the right to be sued under a pseudonym. That’s just my opinion. Furthermore, I find Stoopidhousewives silence regarding the passing of Lynn Hudson much better than being hypocritical and saying something nice. If I don’t like you when you are live, I am not going to change my mind if you die. I say respectful silence is the way to go.”

    WTF?

    Here’s the article

    • Vegas Chick says:

      Hi all… haven’t been around in awhile and boy oh boy am I confused. Who is suing who and who the heck is Tamaratattles? And, what does it have to do with Rich Wakile, lol? Did SH’s identity get revealed? I just like to know if she/he is a man or woman, lol? So many questions…. Thanks for the help 🙂

    • Noelle says:

      There’s better ways to resolve this.
      (Rolling Stone’s…I’m Not your Steppin’ Stone.)

    • Kansas Girl says:

      I read there yesterday and read the comments. The amount of crazy in the world never fails to astound me. I just don’t get the viewpoint posted by the blogger. The Internet is free and we can all read anything public and post on any blog or article that allows posting. To say posters came from any particular blog, and that they planned to cause trouble… well, either that person does not understand how the Internet works, or they are trying to incite riot. I just find it offensive. If I post trouble-making posts, I do that on my own accord and any blogs I might be reading are not responsible for my actions. It seems to me the bloggers themselves are causing the problems between blogs by accusing and riling up readers. Get a grip people! Behave like responsible people! (I am so glad that I mostly only read here. I love that this blog is written following ethical guidelines, written by many contributors, and that honest discussion is encouraged and safe.)

        xoxoxo

      • StephieBar says:

        Kansas Girl, I am agreeing with everything you are writing! The internet is a digital democracy, just bc SH & Lynn might have had an issue back in the day doesn’t mean diddly, and that is why the judge ruled against the cloak of disguise, she wasn’t able to prove that this blog or it’s readers were a valid threat in ANY way shape or form, nor was she able to prove the person that called her a C was even a posting contributor to this page.
        I read most of the housewives blogs, I tried TT blog once, but to be honest, it seemed so bitter – I just, yeah, not for me, and I understand the written word doesn’t always come across the way you want it too, so that could be the way I read it, I digress, anyway…

        Just to add to that, Carly Hall, Lynn’s good friend who she did the podcast with was a fan of SH and used to discuss her with Lynn on the show, so I think that stands to reason, Lynn and her blog never insisted on loyalty to only her blog, (she encouraged me to start one), even if Lynn didn’t see eye to eye with SH, she never tried to banish anything she said or did.

        This isn’t dinner, blogs are not competing restaurants, we can read many. But I will admit this is my favourite 😉

        • PJ says:

          I have to admit I’m a little bit confused why would anyone here pose a threat to another blogger? The only time I have ever read a SH blog was when some mention of it was posted here and that’s only been a couple of times. I never even heard of the TT blog until just now reading this comment. Lynn wasn’t afraid to let people know who she was.

    • Lisa Renee says:

      Hi RealVA, WTF?! Indeed. Who knew the place I post & trust is filled with such horrible people. This crap about how “lynn supporters” are rabid & vile has been going on for years. Heres what I can’t wrap my brain around……There have been heated exchanges between people who post, never saw anyone calling anyone else a C U next Tuesday as TT claims in the comments, who the hell from here acts like that. I know PVS is a rock star but she is never vulgar, though RichieW earned it. Who are these flying monkeys that are so great on this blog & so vile on others. I need answers lol! Hope you & your family are well, Lisa

      • LA Debra says:

        No kidding. I just read the comments at TT, which I didn’t know existed (so my troll duties are being neglected), and was shocked by the level of hate and vitriol by the blogger. I really liked all of you before, even when we agree to disagree, but honestly I appreciate you and the ability to have discussion so much more now.

        • Lisa Renee says:

          Hi Deb, I so agree. I have posted before I never go to SH, that place & the commentors scare me. I am beyond behind in my trolling duties as well apparently. I am with you, I appreciate the ability to agree to disagree without it getting nasty. I love when someone here gives good rant, & can not recall a rant being vulgar. Its why I can not reconcile how “we” the “lynn davidians” got such a bad reputation. TT (not to be confused with our TT TexasTart) doesn’t allow nicnames for the HW’s like DonCaro or wackyJacky but calls “us” out for being aggressive & hostile while she calls “us” every name in the book. Lisa

    • Cartwheels says:

      WOW, this is just despicable.
      I am glad I have never been to that site, this is beyond the pale.

      If anything this blog is one of the best places to blog, posters disagree with others but there is always a level of respect that I have rarely seen in other site.

      Maybe that is why I chose to just stay here because I have read other blogs, but the comments are just rants and personal attacks between posters, and they want to label us trolls? this is unbelievable.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      TT posted at Lynn’s and Real City Housewife before she decided she was going to be the RHoA “hw authority”. Lynn was supportive and welcoming to her and then the still unproven who owned it photo heist hit the board. IIRC, many posters chided her about how she was handling her accusation, which was publically and poorly. She was asked by posters for proof that she owned said photo – she gave no proof, left in a huff and never gave Lynn the opportunity to work out the situation. Apparently after reading her recent rants, she has no respect for the dead and doesn’t want anyone else to give her readers the facts. As for calling those who post here names, alls I know is it just isn’t true! IMHO, she is a poor sport and an even worse blogger and is taking advantage of SH’s current lawsuit situation. She needs to be ignored and her shinanagins shouldn’t be linked to this blog.

      • chismosa says:

        well said WCW. i remember that i think no proof of what she was saying was shown. She did leave in a huff, you said it!

  10. Kansas Girl says:

    Stars, thanks for doing the the cast blogs! Nice job and I love your snark! One small thing — Sheana is the affair girl, and “I-Am-The-Devil” Stassi is the best friend of Pandora. It was Stassi we met earlier when Lisa reprimanded her for insulting a SUR guest. Frankly, I think she should fire them all for being unprofessional. But then I remind myself Ken and Lisa have long years of experience running clubs, bars, restaurants and likely know how much nonsense can be tolerated and even encouraged for good business.

    • Stars99 says:

      Hi All We Are is Dust in the Wind – I get that Scheana is the Sea Witch Mistress… but I thought that last year at that party at Villa Blanca – where Brandi and the Sea Witch first saw each other… that Lisa said later in a conversation with Brandi that Scheana was a friend of Pandoras… no? I could totally be misremembering… it wouldn’t be the first time I’m wrong, certainly won’t be the last… Yes, and Stassi is one gigantic piece of work, isn’t she? lolol Plus, it doesn’t seem like anyone thinks she’s any good at her job… Pandora doesn’t work at either restaurant, does she? If she doesn’t… then who cares where either of them work… they’ve both received some good experience they can put on their resume… lol

      • Kansas Girl says:

        Oh, man (And you say, “Don’t call me “man”!), I don’t remember that. I remember the scene and they’ve replayed bits of it this season. I could be she said that. Wonder if that episode or scene is online. I’ll have to search when I have a bit of time.

        Pandora “fills in” in Villa Blanca. I remember Lisa said that and last season we saw her working there — Lisa had lunch with maybe Taylor?? and Pandy was helping out.

        I agree with you that Lisa could give a great recommendation to any of these people. The restaurant names would carry weight. I would think she would want people who were just a bit less dramatically unstable.

        Did you see I posted my friend’s report from her VB visit? She said Sheana was the hostess and it appeared it was taxing her brain just to seat people. She did not think much of Sheana!

        • Stars99 says:

          Rut roh… if you don’t remember it… then I’m prolly wrong… lol… I don’t think she said it in that episode… but perhaps in a subsequent one, if in fact, she realy did say it at all… I remamber seeing these episodes last season and thinking it was kewl of Lisa to tell Scheana she needed to go home for the evening… and I wondered if the Sea Witch would still be on her staff after the situation came to Lisa’s attention. Do you remember when you posted about your friend’s report? I think I must have missed it… I assumed (I know, silly me) that Scheana was at least a great member of the wait staff… which also contributed to why she was still around… but that cracks me up that she can’t even do that… although, in all sincerety, there is no way on earth I could ever be a waitress cuz everyone would be wearing their food. They are some of the most underappreciated people in whom we come in contact, I believe… I used to actually watch how my dates would handle the wait staff – kind of as a test to the kind of person he is…. I know, kinda weird, no? I also watched how much he tipped… It’s those little things… lololol

          • Kansas Girl says:

            Don’t go by my memory. I remember very small details… sometimes…and sometimes wrong. LOL! I think that scene is likely in the video from last season, as it drove the story line into this season. So should be on Bravo’s site.

            Back then, did Lisa tell Sheana to go home, or did she send her to the other restaurant?

            They said this time that Sheana was the highest tip earner in this first show at SUR. And apparently Sheana was the queen bee at VB before she switched over.

            I had the impression Lisa mixed her employees between restaurants. I think I based that on my (possibly false) memory that Sheana was sent to SUR to avoid Brandi. The restaurants are not next door, and my friend said the area where SUR is is not very nice — and my friends were there at lunch time, not night.

            Yes, a good judge of a date is how he treats the staff and tips. Definitely. Also differentiating between showing off with it and doing it because it’s right.

            • Stars99 says:

              Hmmm… back then… I interpreted what Lisa said to Scheana is that she didn’t need her that night – which to me meant that she was sending her home – not to go work at the other restaurant… but back then I didn’t know that some staff routinely switched restaurants… so I could be really off base with that interpretation. Did you recently post the report from your friend’s visit? Do you know about when you did that… cuz I’d love to read it… but not sure if was in the comments section or somewhere else… sorry… I’m outta the loop and I need to get looped in… not that I need to get any more loopy or anything… lol

              • Kansas Girl says:

                Stars, sweetie! I posted yesterday about 5:00 Central time on the blog. In the comments. The fast way is to pull up the Find feature (Do Control and F and it puts the Find box at the bottom of the page. Type in the word/name you want and it searches for it. If you’re looking for me, and if I was chatty (I think I was) yesterday, you’ll have to hit the Next button or do Enter to flip down to the next time your target word comes up. You can find stuff zip-zip fast that way.) (And did I have enough parenthetical comments there??? LOL)

        • Lisa Renee says:

          Hi KG, I saw the post about your friend & her VB experience & I loved it. When your friend said that Scheana was over taxed as a hostess, I busted out laughing. I can so see that. I am sure it is Stassi that is Pandora’s BFF. It stuck with me because as a former bartender bickering with customers is grounds for immediate termination. Lisa claimed she was in a tough spot because of her DD’s friendship with this horrible wanna be grown woman. Stassi got to keep her job, chapped my ass. I agree Pandora helps out since last season we saw at the opening of SUR/Cedric sighting Pandora had a broom in her hand, pitching in to get the place ready to open. Lauren Manzo take note, it called work ethnicticity. Lisa

          • Kansas Girl says:

            I’m sure Pandora would understand Stassi being fired for fighting with a customer. Being the child of restauranteurs and also working in them, she’d know the rules. She’d be sad for her friend, but this is not a reason for Lisa to keep a poor employee.

            On the other hand, Lisa is savvy enough, I don’t believe she’d keep Stassi on if she’d really created a problem. So I think the “fight” was not so severe. Besides, that was the worst job of looking contrite I’ve seen when Lisa called Stassi in to reprimand her.

            • Lisa Renee says:

              KG, ITA with the worst acting of contrition. Even Lisa didn’t see it, she told Stassi if you have an attitude don’t even come near me. Stassi claimed she didn’t have ‘tude, she was scared. Yes, Lisa is savvy & then some. I hope she didn’t fire her because of the need for bravo injected drama & not because Pandora is her friend. That I can live with. Bartenders/servers get the worst rap & unless you ever worked in the hospitality industry people just don’t understand. This group at SUR is going to further sully the industry, Lisa

    Now Greg is also naming the blogger with this tweet.

  12. StephieBar says:

    It pains me, pains me to say this, but Taylor is right, the cast are being a bunch of hypocrites in the next episode. I really really hope you smack Maurico in the next blog on RHOBH, him saying that when you receive papers, you just call the person and say you were wrong and it will go away is SUCH BS, SUCH BS, I don’t think you could get worse legal advice, and wasn’t he so on the ”friends dont sue friends” bandwagon last season, not to mention that they all agreed that Russell and Taylor were not allowed in the same room as Camille as her lawyer advised, ZERO contact, and that was for an email Russell wrote himself, sans lawyer!

    I hate Maurico and Kyle, I really can’t stand Kyle, her mother f’ed her up good. Kyle is one grade lower than a star f*cker, she’s a money f*cker and so is her slimey husband.

    (sorry to her 3 fans) 😉

    • Kansas Girl says:

      The “it will all go away” is Kyle’s wording too. She seems to think if people just are in proximity (or have dinner together, LOL), problems evaporate. Whenever she’s said that, I wonder if that was her mother’s MO for getting people together. I think there is a lot of Big Kathy in Kyle.

      • StephieBar says:

        yeah, and that woman was a mean girl gold digger, scary sociopath. I think that is why Kim has so many issues, I could see her being bullied by her own mother.

        • Called A Princess... says:

          I feel the biggest problem with Kim Richards is that as a child she was not protected by the grown ups around her. Her mother was the worst because that should have been her main j-o-b, to protect her babies. Instead she had them working in Hollywood, where if the child does not have protection, can be a very dangerous place. JMHO.

    • What hypocrisy! tamaratattles is standing up for stoopidhousewives that her real name should not be revealed in the lawsuit. BUT tamara allows a commenter to out Quincy’s name in the comments on her blog. What a total sh*thead.

      Oh & by the way, according to tamara we are all phucking nutz because we like Lynn’s blog & like to comment here. On a blog devoted to a deceased blogger no less, which according to tamara confirms our nuttiness. Ok whatever tamara. Plus, when stoopidhousewives tried to have her real name suppressed due to the fact she is afraid of Lynn’s commenters (lol I didn’t know we were all to be feared) going after her after her if her real name was outed.

      Well holy crapfest, let me be the first to say I don’t give a sh*t who stoopid is or ever was or will be. There are wackos everywhere. If stoopid has attracted a few, well that’s her problem. Along with stealing photos that she put on her website & refused to remove even after being asked to do so. So stoopid brought on the lawsuit herself!!!!

      After reading tamara’s vitriole about us, the commenters on this blog, all I have to say is I have a headache.

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Yesterday was 60-ish here, but the sun never came out. It was good while it lasted, but today we’ve got winter cold again, and it’s still grey. No rain, no snow. This week all but one Kansas county was declared in a drought disaster — we’re THAT far behind on moisture.

I’m not saying jump on the “lynnlovefest” wagon- just leave her name off thy tongue and keyboard. I can’t tolerate the lame excuses why. Prove it was someone from here and not someone trolling a similar name. Its just all accusations and speculation. As for SH’s real name: I don’t care that the housewives/etc are tweeting it. SHE OUTTED HERSELF WHEN SHE (allegedly) COMMITTED A CRIME. Sorry for caps, just frustrating. Grrr lol. I tweeted because I just couldn’t take it anymore. 😦

    Star99 – great recaps of the blogs. Love your creative writing! Nicely done!

    I am not gonna comment on all the craziness going on except to say…..lets just keep proving our integrity and compassion for each other by rising above it. Don’t let the words and vitriol of others draw you down into the mess. Be your lovely selves!

    Have a wonderful Saturday and weekend! Do something nice for yourself. You deserve it! 🙂

    New blog “In Loving Hands” is up today! Enjoy!

    • TexasTart says:

      Hello Mardrag, I would like to CHEER your comment for no commenting on the crazy and upholding our integrity!!!! Like I said last night; the less attention we pay to the nonsense the better we are for it! Please people, do not get worked up about this. The only thing that I’m upset about is all of these references to “TT” and of course that is NOT me, but what I’m often referred to as. Carry on 😉

      • Agree Darling TexasTart. Sorry about your moniker abbr.! But this too, shall pass. 😉

        • Kansas Girl says:

          Should I point out that Camille’s ex is sometimes referred to as “KG”. And darn it, that’s MY name!

      • LA Debra says:

        Oh boy, Texas, I didn’t think about the TT thing. Very sorry!

        • TexasTart says:

          Hi LADebra, you are kind to say so, but there is no need to apologize…and I see Lisa Renee built a disclaimer into her message, ha.

          TexasTart just wanted to get a DISCLAIMER out there since we have more than usual lookey loos and negative comments floating all over about “TT”.

          With that said, y’all carry on, there is no need to modify your conversation for me!
          I love this place and (((all youse guys))) 😀

    • Cartwheels says:

      well said, with something like this is best to ignore and not engage.

      I will repeat my mantra again 🙂

      Stop giving explanations, your friends don’t need them and your enemies will think they are lies anyway.

    • lizzle says:

      ITA! All I see is a great group of people that I love listening to and occasionally chatting with (it is so hard not to end a sentence with a preposition)

    • Boobah says:

      Well said, Mardrag!!! Thank you for todays blog btw!

    This is what started the rift between Lynn and Tamara T.

    http://lynnnchicago.com/?p=2692#comment-85043

    • VV says:

      MTH,
      Here’s the comment you made way back about the pics. I think SH read your comment because shortly after that, she started to watermark her pics diagonally like you suggest….

      • melthehound says:

        I didn’t think it was that long ago.. I was still MelHatZarin2..

        This is all fun to watch I guess but people are way too nutso about these blogs. Someone is out there trying to stir up an old war with a (now) dead woman. Sad and pathetic. I guess the end goal is achieved though because people are talking about it.

        • StephieBar says:

          Sorry I am getting more confused by the second, I read the old link, was she accusing Lynn of stealing her work? or SH or someone else, I didn’t see any response from Lynn, ah, either way, as stated above, Lynn is sadly dead. Everyone does deserve to rest in peace. Whenever something big goes down with the housewives, I imagine Lynn getting all excitable and jumping up and down, that’s how I like to think of her anyway, not this blogger war bs.

          • VV says:

            Both links take you to that one comment by the poster but also the entire page. So, you can scroll up or down to read all the comments made prior and after.

            • thedesigndiva2 says:

              VV.. it was somewhat sad for me to go back and read all those comments…seems lots of folks are no longer participating and some friendships have fallen by the wayside.. in this the new year , I have accepted my part for some of that wish everyone well…
              hugs and peace
              diva

              • melthehound says:

                I noticed quite a number as well.. Just surrounding the comment that VV linked to.

              • Boobah says:

                Diva – I noticed many familiar names also. That day in particular was a tough day; I remember thinking WTF?! The lost friendships make me sad also.
                oxox

                • thedesigndiva2 says:

                  boobah… yeppers.. so sad that sometimes real life gets in our way and we get lost… I made amends with family over the holidays and we all decided to move forward …. so far, so good…winks
                  hugs and peace
                  diva

                  • VV says:

                    Yes, Diva. It was sad to see many familiar names that haven’t posted in ages. I’m glad you’re making amends with your relatives. Forgiving is empowering.

                  • Boobah says:

                    Thats GREAT, Diva!!! I recently had the opposite happen, LOL! Had a falling out with my sister – probably won’t speak for a while. But its okay. She is in a toxic place and I can’t be around someone like that right now- so distance is fine by me!

                    Yeah – you are right – Real life sure does get in the way.

                    • Pghemtchick says:

                      (((((((Boobah &Diva)))))

                      I’m glad to hear that the healing has began and hearts are being opened/mended, Diva. I wish you well & pray it stays positive. Boobah, ❤ I'm glad you were able to step away from the toxic, but one day she'll come around and realize what a great sister and love she's been missing. I hope she realizes the hurt and toxicity before it hurts anyone else. Hoping you'll have a positive reuniting that's healthy. Been there w:"/ my sister and her borderline ways I know it's hard 😦 so my heart goes out to you

          • melthehound says:

            FWIW, I don’t know if I believe that either SH or Tamara Tattles are trying to rekindle old blog feuds. I do however think that even 6 months after she passed away, there are still those out there who have some sort of an ax to grind with Lynn. That’s who I am referring to as sad and pathetic. Lynn rarely engaged these people in public, on her blog. Her favorite tactic it seemed, was to change their comments to words more favorable and positive towards her, if she didn’t just delete the comments all together.

            • tamara is looking for blog hits? (again). so many started fights with Lynn to get people to go over to their blogs.

              • thedesigndiva2 says:

                It’s not hard now a days to cross reference ‘nicknames’ and come up with someones real name…..

              • melthehound says:

                Well, let her get her 3 seconds of fame out of it rekindling old feuds for hits and we’ll all move on in the meantime. Where I once may have engaged, I don’t have time or patience for the foolishness anymore. I’d rather spend my time trashing HWs, which is the original reason I came here 😉

                • Kansas Girl says:

                  I’ve come to that conclusion too. I was feeling rather sad that the bickering was starting up again and then realized that I’m done with it and will no longer let it worry me. Done. Talk about more interesting stuff and never again about the other topics. Peace.

  21. PJ says:

    Just my two cents worth but this is what I think, some people want to be on the RH shows because of the paycheck and opportunities that will come their way but they can’t take the heat and by that i mean public scrutiny. Some people just don’t come off well on these shows and viewers have their opinions about them so they go on blogs or on twitter and say what they think. It doesn’t help for these cast members to then go on twitter and rant ugly things at people, all it does is make them even more unpopular than they already were. Even if all the blogs that discusses the RH shows were shut down the opinions of viewers would continue and the unpopularity of certain cast members would not improve. Perhaps if viewers didn’t have these blogs to state their opinions and vent their frustrations they would just start changing the channel and then where would the paycheck and opportunities go. I personally have already done that with OC and AT and I’m not going back, NJ was so negative last season I have no interest in it this season unless there are some major changes, I’m on the fence about NY, I still watch BH for now. The smart cast members on these shows embrace the viewers and the bloggers and don’t try to fight them and insult them.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      You are right, PJ. Some of them take the good with the bed more graciously than others. The NJ folks show their lack of manners and lack of education on the regular, don’t they? They are so tacky, that it’s almost part of what makes them entertaining. I suppose at some point, we the viewers. must decide when to stop being entertained by them and their on camera and off camera antics. I vowed not to watch OC because of Tamra. That’s the first HW show ever. I won’t watch it, nor any scenes, nor read their cast blogs…still debating if I will read the OC blogs here. Not sure, yet. I think for every HW show and related activity I drop, it will raise the quality of my thought life? Sounds very hoity toity of me, but I’m starting with eliminating OC from my thought life. But that’s the ONLY one I can cross off the list at this point. Well, it’s a start!!

      • PJ says:

        I still find some of the people in the NJ cast entertaining but some of them I am so disgusted by the way they act. Its so funny you put it the way you did about raising your thought life because my husband basically says the same thing.

  22. designernailsdiana says:

    I think LuAnn should get family dinner tips from Yolanda!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      The Dinner conversation is so different at the Fosters. LuAnn uses her on air dinners to criticize and cut off her kids when they try to talk. Yolanda’s maternal instincts are more natural. er…she HAS maternal instincts.

  23. melthehound says:

    Happy Birthday Cakers 😀

  24. melthehound says:

    Richie W better pull his head out of his ass and recognize. Recognize that if it weren’t for these ‘asshole bloggers’, no one would be talking about the show where his fishy wife is trying to promote her stale Canoli kits. That should be important to him because he is as big of a famewhore as the rest of his crew.

    Ah yes.. The Manzoids are in on the act too. I wonder if they’ll push Miracle Murk as the cure to what ails all bloggers now. Have we heard from the other half of the Manzorita Klan? Jac?

  25. Pat says:

    Lisa Vanderpump is one of my very favorite housewives, but I admit I’m a little annoyed with her right now, too. I was happy she got a spin-off show, but it’s a shame it’s such a silly, fake concept, with all these wannabe, vacuous kids. Beyond boring. And the “SUR is where you take your mistress…” Oh no she didn’t! I do think she is protecting her real guests, staff and real restaurant, Villa Blanca, while filming this fake restaurant show at SUR. That at least was smart.

    Kyle and Adrienne both grew up in very plastic worlds of the over-indulged. They are both terrible judges of character. They were both jealous of Lisa, and missed out on the friendship she tried to extend to them. Funny that they both tried to bring on a new cast member that they thought would be their ally. Adrienne introduced Brandi to the group, and Kyle brings Marisa on, only to find that she IS a good judge of character and she loves Brandi. And Brandi and Lisa became bffs!

    And my other thought… I was so hoping the rumors were true, that Taylor was going to be phased off the show. So far, no such luck.

  26. Birdwoman says:

    Stars, I agree with you about the crying. When my mom died from Cancer and I was only 25. I cried the whole time, I didn’t care. Thankfully, no one said to me to keep a stiff upper lip….though my grandmother did not cry at all and that was her daughter. I found that the most strange thing of all. Losing my mother was so devastating…but losing a child, I can’t even begin to imagine the pain of that. Now that I am older, I do understand that my Grandmother was from an era that was told to keep their feelings bottled up however the amount of energy that it takes to do that is incredible.

    • Laineylainey says:

      You’re right about the energy it takes to bottle things up. I have a sister who does that. Problem is, she has a short fuse because of all the years of bottling things up. One never knows when she might blow!

    • boston02127 says:

      ((((Birdwoman)))) A hug 4 u. l still cry. I don’t think it ever goes away.

  27. melthehound says:

    Stars99! Great job once again 😀 I’m with you on LisaV.. That whole sit down thing for Brandi was little more than a way to promote her new show. If you’ve ever seen the movie Goodfellas, Friday night is for the wives, Saturday night is for the girlfriends. Wiseguy mentality and it’s no different than Lisa’s tagline in this case.

    • Stars I enjoyed your recap too! And agree with you on Lisa V. If SUR manages to go for a long run on VR, it just reinforces my suspicion that SUR is a front for a raunchy reality show.

    • chismosa says:

      oh my god i don’t remember that line from Goodfellas MTH, i’ll have to watch out for that part. That’s a good line. ha

      • melthehound says:

        It’s about a quarter way in if I remember correctly. It referred to the Copa as their hangout / date spot.

        • chismosa says:

          was the Copa the restaurant he brought Lorraine Braco to, right next to the dancefloor/band— the famous restaurant shot through the back entrance? ughh, it’s been too long since i sat all the way through that.

          I was just watching Swingers the other day on HDnet and they dissect Goodfellas and that famous shot through the back of the restaurant.

          • melthehound says:

            Yes.. Then later in the movie they burned the place down after they pillaged it for all it was worth. I haven’t seen Swingers.

            • chismosa says:

              Thanks Mel. Swingers is a fun little movie that was a cult hit when i was in college- it has Vince Vaughn and i think it made him kind of a star- he is so funny in it. It’s just about a guy in Los Angeles trying to make it work out there in Lala land while he is so incredibly upset over his breakup with his girlfriend from back east. VV is his friend in LA. They go to Vegas, gamble. It’s interesting, funny one-liners, etc. Kind of a 1950’s retro-vibe with music and dress as well. But takes place, present-time.

              • melthehound says:

                Maybe I have seen it, Chismosa. I’ll have to see if I can find it online. I didn’t realize it was made that long ago but then again, Goodfellas was late 80s or early 90s (I remember first seeing it with a girlfriend at the time).

                • melthehound says:

                  By ‘that long ago’ I don’t intend to imply anything mean 😉

                  • chismosa says:

                    please not at all, i think most here think i am like 25, when i’m not!
                    ok Swingers was out about 1996 or so? I just remember ‘that era’— it may have been later college, or early college but to me it’s ‘college’- you know, how you remember certain things. It’s a cute movie. Vince Vaughn and the actor, who is now a big director, Jon Favreau are very good friends in real life.

      • Sus says:

        Any time I see that Goodfellas is on, I check to see if it’s near the scene when Henry stays out all night. His mother-in-law and wife are waiting up for him. He comes in and the MIL starts up bitching. Henry leaves and Joe Pesci starts mocking the MIL.

        “Henry Henry” in Joe Pesci’s voice mocking the MIL cracks me up every time.

        • melthehound says:

          😆 .. “WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN!”…. That mother played Carmella’s mother in the Sopranos too, Lorain Bracco was his shrink.. No Joe Pesci though..

  28. WindyCityWondering says:

    Maybe the problem I am having with VR is that little was said about the actual content/format and and what I see in all the HW franchises. So VR is a bunch of self centered young people all dreaming of being the next (fill in the blank) superstar. The demographic for VR is not the same as for the HW franchises. Watching little star struck creatures preen and groom and throw snark at each other doesn’t appeal to me. Hope that Lisa has more scenes being a saavy restauranteer, because VR is nothing more than that “break” vehicle this cast feels entitled to and frankly they are so boring.

    • After hearing what Kansas Girl’s friends said about SUR being in a bad neighborhood, and not looking like such a great place….made me think that perhaps SUR is just a front for a raunchy tv reality show.

      • Laineylainey says:

        Love this, bluesky! I suspect you might be right!

      • Kansas Girl says:

        LOL!

      • thedesigndiva2 says:

        http://www.surrestaurantandbar.com/

        here’s the website for SUR..

        • Kansas Girl says:

          Ooooo. I’ve just clicked ALL the way through the site. First of all, the music is really nice and when I figure out what 2 of the songs are, they’ll be something I listen to a lot. Sexy, I think. Second of all (as my students like to say), look at the staff photos and how they present the restaurant overall. I see now why the VR show is as it is. It’s the sexy, bad-boy(girl) they’re going for. And I get it. I’m no longer as disgusted. She says she’s going for a sexy southern European look, and I totally see that now. Does not look tacky (but I see how my friend, peering in the window, thought so — she’s a suburban gal, not taken with anything like sexy nightclubs) and I would LOVE to eat there!

          Go look, just for the music! I’m still humming.

      • Mene Seela says:

        On the BH show they made it look like Sur was right next door to Villa Blanca. I remember all the gum stuck on the pavement in front of Sur at the opening party.

        BTW Most of Hollywood and the area is really gross, trashy and seedy. You wouldn’t believe it.

      • VV says:

        Actually SUR is located in West Hollywood. My understanding is that a lot of A-listers go there. It’s supposed to be a hot spot at night. Lisa mention the decoration was eclectic with pieces she had collected all over the world in her travels. It certainly caters to a much different audience.
        So far we have seen, they film during the day when it’s not as busy. The open at 5:30PM.

        • nyc mama says:

          Sur is lovely. i have been there 3x, each time I went to Cali on business and the experience was great as was the food. They expanded into a lounge when the tile/stone store next door went under. I don’t know who said it was run down – hardly. Perhaps because they have a distressed door from Indonesia they got that impression but it is not worn down or ugly and it’s always crowded. Different than Villa Blanca but it is meant to be. It caters to a different, younger clientele and West Hollywood is where they should be.

        • Kansas Girl says:

          My friend tried to go there for lunch, so she saw it in full daylight and the neighborhood. I suspect it’s meant to be viewed at night where small details might not be obvious. I think I’ve noticed on the show that in full lighting there is a bit of tacky decor and things that are not that elegant. But with dimmer, more “romantic” lighting, you’d never notice. I can believe that it could be a hot spot.

          • nyc mama says:

            I saw it in full daylight also when we were deciding if we were going to have an event there and it was lovely in the light as well as the dark. Everyone has their own interpretation and tastes so no one is wrong.

        • chismosa says:

          Hi VV, from all the jokes i always hear on various comedians, Chelsea Handler, others who comment about LA on other reality shows- West Hollywood is the famously ‘gay’ area but i’m not sure about high-end. I’m sure they all run to go to the Abbey (sp?) because that is the most famous gay bar in LA but that may be just on its own fabulousness.

          I’m not sure about hanging out IN West Hollywood. Restaurants, i mean.

          • nyc mama says:

            I’m not sure one thing has anything to do with another. Like ny, la’s high end restaurants are all over including mixed and gay areas. In West Hollywood you have some of the best restaurants in LA; The Palm, Luques, Petrossian, Nobu, Comme Ca, Gordon Ramsey, Koi,… One of the hottest parts of the city for nightlfe and dining.

            • chismosa says:

              i didn’t mean to imply that all, i’m saying i know West Hollywood is known as the fun ‘gay’ area and jokes are made (well-meaning, not maliciously) about that in many things i’ve seen on tv and in shows and movies, i had not known that famous restaurants were there too.
              ive been to LA a few times but did not remember all this so forgive me, i forget if there are indeed great high starred restaurants and stores, etc. there— sorry if i came off that way. i’m an east coaster mostly :/

              Stands to reason a very gay area would have fantastic restaurants and nightlife, as the taste-level would be sky high, Chelsea here in Manhattan is such a place as well. My favorite area of manhattan 😉 (not pre-Giuliani, but post)

              • nyc mama says:

                i agree Chimosa. Needless to say I live in NY as well (my name is probably a give away 🙂 ) and as you know many trendy restaurants are all over including the less than elegant lower east side, Meatpacking district, etc. It’s the same in LA now.

            • VV says:

              Thank you nyc mama. You articulated my point better than I could have.

              • chismosa says:

                Sorry all did not mean to imply anything negative– again, my wording was not as i meant it, sorry it happens. i’m catching up too much on this site and other stuff online, ughh. Apologies!

                But yes, you can see jokes and conversations said in many places that W. Hollywood is known as a ‘gay’ area, that is just an out and out truth that i have to stick by, simply because i’ve seen it on so many things on tv and movies! It is — NOT—- a bad thing, just what that area is ‘known’ as, OR is being portrayed to look as. Every neighborhood in NYC is ‘known for’ something as well. Nothing bad about it!

              • nyc mama says:

                No problem. IMO comparing the two is like apples and oranges. VB is upscale and more elegant and SUR is geared for a younger, more fun crowd and vibe. The decor was beautiful IMO, eclectic and interesting. And each time I ate there it was packed so she must be doing something right.

                • chismosa says:

                  i mean i’m sorry but those little mini dresses that Lisa has the waitresses/ women working there wearing? From St. Tropez? or St. Barth’s? Wendy Williams held one wrapped in her fist it was so small! (But, Wendy does have big hands so…. ha ha)

          • djprincessc says:

            Chismosa you’re right about the gay thing for West Hollywood, I was just about to type that, lol. We call it WEHO. Haha, I’ve been to the Abbey before but its been a while, West Hollywood is like 98% gay, you see rainbow flags everywhere! 🙂

    • boston02127 says:

      @WCW—I feel the same way. I just got caught up with the show and I’m disappointed with Lisa. I don’t know why she’d want to involve herself so closely with such skanky people.

      • Called A Princess... says:

        Lisa wants to make money in Hollywood. The front page for SUR does not leave much to the imagination. The models/waitstaff seem to be on the make and that image sells to the young adult and star maker markets. JMHO.

  29. Laineylainey says:

    BB I finally got to watch PR Allstars. Loved it. Loved your recap and Like you, I wish they had kept josh!! I also think that ulie did not adhere to the instructions…deconstruct your original design and make something new with it. While ulie did deconstruct the dress, she also used fabric that wasn’t part of the original design, it was lining she HADN’T used! That burns me a ill bit.

    • chismosa says:

      i’m happy that there are others who like Josh- i understood totally what he was trying to do with that dress and if the florals were just a wee bit different, i think it would have ROCKED. But the judges always have hard-ons for Uli and for Anthony Ryan, so they were definitely on their way in. Uli has a nice personality so i like her.

      I miss Josh, awww. I loved his line ‘i was like a straight guy at a baseball game!’ ha ha!!

    Is RHONJ Stars’ Feud Over? Teresa Giudice Throws 12th Birthday Party For Daughter Gia And Estranged Sister-In-Law Melissa Gorga Attends! | Radar Online: http://radaronline.com/exclusives/2013/01/is-rhonj-stars-feud-over-teresa-giudice-throws-12th-birthday-party-for-daughter-gia-and-estranged-sister-in-law-melissa-gorga-attends/#.UPHMvJtY_6E.twitter

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Sadly, IMHO, Melissa was there because there were cameras there – feud or no feud – Melissa must be on display.

      • VV says:

        Oh my! You’re right Windy! I missed that fact!

      • melthehound says:

        That’s all I could think of too.

        i hate hate hate to step into the fray when it has to do with NJ and Melissa especially but she has always stated, back when any feud was just simmering, before even boiling, before on FIRE, that she always no matter the state of her relationship with Tre, or Joey with Tre, tried to make sure their kids always attended each other’s birthday parties.

        As for the hair thing, at least i take it as an honest thing that she is honestly/ ‘organically’ to use the term du jour– tweeting, FB’ing, whatever the hell, as opposed to her ‘estranged S.I.L.’ and the Britney Spears-like robotic-PR-management of measured tweets, interviews, blogs, and appearances with words that clearly are not hers. I’ll take real, thanks. Well, as real as can be expected for this Bravo drivel nowadays 😉

        • melthehound says:

          Except that they both said, at the reunion, that Teresa was out of their lives, for good. Once a lying POS Marco sister, always a lying POS Marco sister, including the angel from god himself, Tarzan’s owner, cry baby joey.

          • chismosa says:

            yeah i see what you mean MTH, she can’t be saying that- and then also saying she’ll go to the parties, though i do feel for the kids’ sake she was trying to keep them together. But i know i’m like the 1 of 500 people here who ever felt anything for Melissa. So i’ll duck out of this convo now! And i have to prepare myself for my sabbatical from this site when NJ is back on, especially if that one with the jaw comes on- Jennifer Dalton or whatever. ha

            • melthehound says:

              I’m not trying to chase you away from a conversation, I’m just saying the way I saw it. I have no (more) desire to fight with anyone about these HWs. They’re really, All trashy IMO.

              • chismosa says:

                i know, even to hear everyone kind of turn on Lisa from Beverly Hills— to me it is like the death knell, if the Queen is dead. These shows have really just gone astray……

                • Called A Princess... says:

                  Chismosa, I admire you sense of loyalty. I for one have not turned on Lisa. I never have and never will, like her very much. She is not my cup of tea. Most people here know how I feel about her. JMHO.

                  • chismosa says:

                    thanks CAP, i think it’s that i’m too black and white on things, it’s a problem i have to work on.

                • melthehound says:

                  I don’t know if I’ve turned on her, in fact I feel the same way about her I always did. I prefer Ken and Giggy (not necessarily in that order). I just don’t like the idea of her setting up that tripe of a meeting (that of course everyone had to agree on) in order to segue into her new show, VR. Like Stars, I wasn’t too jazzed about her tagline for SUR and using Brandi as a transition into the new show (Bravo induced no doubt). This season especially all seems to be about the product advertising. Skin care lines, restaurants, books, real estate businesses.. Is Lips McGee pushing a product this time around it is it still her book, ‘running from the truth’?

      I have problems giving much credit to a website that uses big red comic sans fonts. I guess I’m a snob.

      • BB says:

        Oh, no! A cybersnob! lol.

        • Orson says:

          Ahem! Font snob!
          Actually I really used to like Comic Sans. Heck, even way before I knew it was CS, for that matter, before 286 days, when I was taking mechanical drawing, CS was my goal.

          • lizzle says:

            I’m always late to the party, but I loved your comment, Orson. Radar’s font looks like a reinvented comic sans. Comic sans has gotten a bad rap, so it really needs some good PR to get me to like the reinvented version. I love fonts. I used to spend hours looking at all the different fonts on microsoft word. There is a great documentary about typography called “Helvetica” (which ironically, is the other font that I think Radar is using now)

      • chismosa says:

        i hate comic sans! that is so funny.

    Texas Tart – I feel your pain!
    Back when LuAnn (and Sonja) slept with the Johnny Depp look-alike pirate, people were talking about the scuzzy greasy whore “JD” for WEEKS! LOL.

  39. WindyCityWondering says:

    Adrienne’s secret may just be that the farce of a marriage was indeed ending. Of course Kyle and her real estate whore husband would side with Adrienne/Paul because they smelled a new listing coming. The fact that Paul is now fine with Lisa and Brandi speaks volumes about who the secret would hurt. And it is obvious to me that both Camille and Taylor are staying out of this because they have both been subjected to an old fashion witch burning by Kyle and Adrienne in the past. It is good that Lisa, Yolanda and Marisa are not letting this behavior slide. The kicker for me is that I really don’t care what Adrienne’s secret is because she bores me.

    • JustDee says:

      Maury had a potential 3 comissions from Adrienne and Paul. All multi-million dollar properties!

    • iceNfire says:

      I’m beginning to think secret is “farce of a marriage” too.Brandi hinted as much in last seasons reunion when she said only two husbands were on Hawaii trip. She also said in TH that it’s a secret everyone knows so the HW’s are only surprised that Brandi said it on film.

  40. chismosa says:

    hi everyone, hope you are all well! i’m living in fear here in NY about the flu, i haven’t gotten a shot- but since i haven’t in so many years (I used to at an old job)- – i figured, i didn’t need one, now i think it’s too late to even bother… so i’m just washing hands ragged, wiping everything away, etc….
    Hope you all stay healthy!

    Funny little story for our Housewives fans and i can’t believe i only found this out last night, because this could have happened like 8 months ago for all i know— my brother, who is 33, told me that his friend, who is about 47/48 but looks, i think, imo, a bit younger— and apparently ‘looks like Richard Gere’- (um kind of i dont agree completely)– -was ‘hit on’ by one of the “” NY housewives”” one time at some place, so i badgered and badgered and was like ‘why didn’t you tell me this WHEN IT HAPPENED’- apparently it was some time ago. So he had to text Richard Gere to find out which one.
    Well i had my idea that it had to be Sonja. Then i thought maybe Kelly?

    it was Bawby’s gal- Illzy!
    I can’t believe it, and i don’t think she was ‘hitting hitting’ on him, i think just being flirtatious. I will have to ask him the next time i see him. Richard Gere i mean. Imagine she was really hitting on him? i don’t think so….. this guy is married and his kids too. Jill doesn’t even drink so we can’t say oh she had some drinks. It was a funny little story, had to tell you all.
    ——————————————————————
    Glad to see Detox came back for a bit- Detox come back soon!
    I still have to watch Mob Wives, i’m so behind! I hate Carla and Drita and don’t think my opinions will change. Ok, catching up now…. have a great weekend all.

    • Mene Seela says:

      LOL and eewwwww. Gee, how did Richard Gere deny himself the honor of … what? buying the Red Plague jewelry in exchange for a BJ?

  41. Jules says:

    Adrienne’s photo is in this weeks Entertainment Weekly last page Bullseye page. “new leatherface”. Anyone else notice her?

    • chismosa says:

      we get that magazine and WE DON’T PAY FOR IT, so we don’t know why we get it – when years back i used to pay for it it’s ironic— who is on the cover? I will look for this.
      But her skin is like the opposite of leatherface?, it’s worked on and pulled back too much. Too many peels, dermabrasions, thermage, whatevers.

      • Jules says:

        Jan 18 issue. Catching Fire movie on cover. Wow to getting it for free!

        • chismosa says:

          and my brother gets Rolling Stone and Men’s Journal- with NO paying. And if they ever EVER try to ask me to start paying up, i’ll fight it. (we share the mags)

          thank you i’ll look for it!

  42. Nancy says:

    Mene,
    Are you watching the game? Your team was just handed a present that they didn’t deserve!
    This game has been insane! Hate to see anyone loose when they play like this.
    20 mins to go.

    • chismosa says:

      Nancy i was reading up on the blogs catching up and the other night saw you were going to watch War Horse. I own it on DVD, it airs on Showtime about 3x a day here, and i refuse to watch it.
      How can you watch it? The horse gets stuck and is in pain!? I can’t bear it. Plus Joey is the name of the horse + that is one of my dog’s names so…… no thank you, i’ll keep it moving.

      Did you enjoy it? I know it’s supposed to be wonderful. With many pale actors and sparkling blue eyes all over the place (some site was making fun of that when the movie came out, all the actors having these mesmerizing eyes and all looking alike )

      • Nancy says:

        Hi chismosa,
        I asked my sister because I knew she had seen it and she told me it wouldn’t
        get me too upset. It really was a beautiful movie.

        • chismosa says:

          yeah i get upset watching horses running a race, or the horse carriages here in the city (well that’s a big issue onto itself) , so i just couldn’t watch. One day, hopefully i will.
          My father always tells me ‘but the horses LOVE to run’ – i’m like ‘ i dont care, they’re getting whipped!’. ha ha.
          i’m a basket case, i really am. 😉

  43. iceNfire says:

    Anyone know where I can watch RHOV season 1? Do I have to download it?

  44. chismosa says:

    i don’t watch BeverlyHills, but i did watch Lisa V on WWH and on Wendy this past week and i just want to comment:
    a- she looks better than she did in her old tv/ movie shots
    She looks really REALLY good. Like, Kris Jenner good, her face i mean. So excellent job on her fillers not being too much, etc.

    b- her butt. i want to comment on her ASS, if you excuse my french. Just like stupid Kim Trashian tried to prove to her ‘fans’ that she did not have butt implants- and had an xray done on her show to show that— there are indeed OTHER ways to implant fat into your butt. Butt implants are generally thought of as quite dangerous and many plastic surgeons do not like to do them. But you CAN implant fat and other plumpers, into your butt. I think that is what Lisa did. It really fills her out nicely, her bust looks quite good (work there? i dont know what to compare to…)
    JMHO, thought i’d mention. You don’t magically wake up with a butt like Jennifer Lopez or Beyonce if you didn’t have it naturally. You can work your butt a bit, but not to the degree that I think, imho, Kim Trashian, Vanderpump, and many others have.

    • Nancy says:

      The filler is called Hydrogel.

    • Kat from Ohio says:

      i need some of that. pancake ass over here

      • iceNfire says:

        I heard CoCo ( Ice T’s lady/wife? ) say once that she had implants in her breasts but not her ass cuz she didn’t want to sit on them.

        • chismosa says:

          um, that’s another one. She can’t have that ass naturally. I’m sorry. I’m really really sorry.
          Even Niki Minaj- i think she enhanced hers.

          Kat ^ i need that too! I guess it’s genetic, i got the same body type as my mother– no butt, same legs.

          • djprincessc says:

            You ladies crack me up! The only ass I think is 100% real are Jlos and Beyonce. Only because if you see JLO in her In Living Color days her ass was bigger!! Like HUGE! Through the years her ass her gotten smaller so you know thats on purpose! And Beyonces ass has basically been the same consistently.

            I have seen before and after pics of KIm K and Nicki that shit is FAKE, they were both flat before, all you gotta do is google them. COCO, not sure but pretty sure her ass is fake too. IDK I don’t get what the big deal is, I’ve had a big ass since I was a teenager but at that time you were considered fat. lol. Jlo is the one that made having a big ass desirable. I’m working on getting mine and my hips smaller, I’m very pear shaped and getting clothes is hard a lot of times because everything is so fricken tight on the bottom and loose on the waist and stomach!

            Sigh..the things we women go through to look good 😦

  45. Powell says:

    Hey all. I hope you’ve had a great Saturday. I’ve been catching up on Shahs and the HWs. What’s up? 🙂

    • Nancy says:

      Hi Powell,
      The football playoffs are on. San Fran 49ers start in a few mins. 🙂

    • chismosa says:

      Hi Powell
      I love Shahs so if you ever want to dissect. I even once tentatively went onto that stupid Tamara’s site because she was actually really dissecting it and i was looking for some more info- but now i know to NOT GO THERE. Not many here are as fond of the show as i am.

      Salamati!

      • iceNfire says:

        I Love to Hate the Shahs especially the persianpoppriestess that is too old to be the pop of anything.

        • chismosa says:

          it’s called “Hate-watching” Many do it. I hate watch a lot of stuff.
          Asa- how old is she? i want to know ALL of their ages. GG i think is the youngest and she’s 30 because they all keep yelling at her about her age.

      • Powell says:

        I really like Shahs. I don’t think they are being fair to GG excluding her from Mexico. GG has issues from her childhood & needs to get a handle on it but she is trying and wants to apologize so they should’ve invited her, listened to her and put their feet down about her attacking people all the time. MJ needs to stop hating on Lilly. Lilly hasn’t done anything but try to be nice. What’s up w/Sammy this season. They haven’t shown him at work like they did last season & they only show him when they party. I noticed that he’s not in the picture w/all of them bit Lilly is.

  46. T-Rex says:

    Just my one and only post regarding the other blogs. I have rarely read other blogs, and have never once posted anywhere but here. I know that folks disagreed with Lynn from time to time but instead of being adults reverted to chidlike behaviour. I will state first and foremost I enjoy all the folks here, do we agree to disagree on my part, you bet, may not like the post, but don’t dislike the poster everyone has an opinion whether I pr you like it or not. Debate the issue not the person. I will say regarding some of this “supposed” crap posted by folk here on other blogs, most of those were not actual folks that post here. I will tell you that my name was impersonated elsewhere with a slight variation on the name but close enough for folks to think it was me. It wasn’t. I rectified the issue with the appropriate internet service hosting the particular blog to have them removed. I don’t believe that anyone here ever wrote the kind of crap being spewed. Look there were those that trolled but they trolled on ALL the blogs to stir up bad blood and turmoil. My rant, I loved Lynn and her blog and I love NMD and all the other bloggers for keeping Lynn’s memory alive, you know there is a personal HELL for those that want to throw their troubles and insecurities on the back of a dead woman, kudos to those bloggers for being the MOST despicable people on the planet. Karma bitches because this blog still does more traffic and has the coolest people hang out here still and you can’t stand it with your freakin 12 posts a day compared to over a 125 here daily.

    • chismosa says:

      love it!
      Karma bitches…. ha ha. I like that- is that from a movie, now i’m wondering. i wish i still believed in karma but i dont anymore. But all well said! We are very lucky to have this place.

    • TexasTart says:

      ITA “there is a personal hell for those….”

    • Sus says:

      I can’t help but think that Lynn is laughing her ass off the last few days. There was even a mention in the TT comments wrongly blaming Lynn AGAIN for the Jenn Sale casino.

      I believe in Karma 🙂

  47. Powell says:

    MarDrag and Boobah the beef stew was delish, the brandy was divine and the company was so much fun. You ladies like to party. How many bottles did we drink? I can’t remember. 😉 And Boobah you stole my shot glasses. 🙂

    • TexasTart says:

      Boobah! ha, ha. I was going to ask about y’all this morning and was in such a hurry I forgot! You know, Boobah thought they were a hostess gift…wait, she.wasn’t the host! 😉

    • Hi Ladies….just waking up from my afternoon nap I had to take cuz ya’ll partied me out! LOL! The food was good, the Brandy was excellent….but the company was the BEST!!! Loved having you over and can’t wait to do it again!

      Boobah…can I have my lampshade back now please?!? 😛 LOL! And no worries…I’ll replace Powell’s shot glasses, I have a collection.

      TexasTart…you have to join us next time! Thanks for a great night!! 😀

  48. BB says:

    OMG What.A.Game!

  49. chismosa says:

    can someone tell me why Bethenny was on QVC?, i just went to QVC’s site and can’t find anything having to do with a Bethenny. It’s not the alcohol because that’s not hers to really sell directly– the shapewear? her skincare?

    QVC is located in her in-laws’ state, no? or am i confusing that with HSN

    just wondering— thanks

    • Nancy says:

      I’m sure it was her shapewear.

    • BB says:

      The Skinnygirl Daily Cleanse is on their website. I don’t know if that’s what she was selling though. I didn’t watch it.

      • Boobah says:

        Yes, That was what she was selling. It looked like a package deal. Mostly it was granola bars/health bars. I thought the bars looked good! She clarified that this ‘cleanse’ wasn’t a violent cleanse – just food packed with fiber and such.

  50. chismosa says:

    hmmm ok i found ONE cami on the site, not great reviews– shouldn’t there be more to her line?, and then i found her bars and stuff – (that that cute guy Matt from Colorado was working on)- there is a kit for that. That’s it. Interesting.

  51. Nancy says:

    Ok Payton…it’s yours to win!

  52. chismosa says:

    2 things i just found out- not sure if they were discussed before–
    there is going to be a Big Rich Atlanta???
    Kyle’s husband was one of the realtors that sold Kim and Kanye their new home.
    funny

  53. Nancy says:

    ((((Payton)))) What an upset!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  54. TexasTart says:

    On the “Kathy” show on Bravo, Kathy Griffin has a segment where she shows something that was over ths top ridiculous on TV. Her choice this week was only one clip. It was Kim and Kyle on …what was that called Danger or Diving with the Stars? Now if you didn’t see them attempt diving, I don’t know if you’ll get this, but Kathy showed the clip with almost no commentary and her audience was laughing like crazy. 😆 Afterwards she did make fun of Kyle mouthing to her family she loved them…I guess in case she didn’t survive..that was SO dramatic, I tell ya’ 😉

    SF 49ers WIN!!!!!!!!!!! (Very happy)

    • TexasTart says:

      No question they would win that one, I’m surprised I stayed with it till the end. I’m sure you and the Mr are happy!

  60. Checking in after a long day of skiing. I am TIRED. I just have one question. Any Falcons fans on the blog? (I need to know who to block tomorrow) Joke. GO SEAHAWKS!!

  61. SCGIRL says:

    Did anyone else noticed how different Tamera’s face looked in one of the photos she tweeted out today (the collage picture with her daughters from a photoshoot)? Looks like she has had cheek implants or tons of filler put in her face and has gotten a nice new set of veneers…she looks ridiculous…every season she gets more and more pathetic chasing youth….

  62. Yesterday when I commented to NMD about posting images on the blog, someone commented back to me claiming that you can use any image posted on the Internet as long as you give credit. 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. You cannot just use another person copyrighted material if they don’t want you to. Giving credit doesn’t make it okay. NMD I urge you to independently research this topic and educate yourself to avoid liability. It’s a common misconception that if it’s on the Internet you can use it, this is patently false. But no need to take my word for it. There is plenty of info online. Here’s just one link to get you started. http://doncrowther.com/social-media/how-to-findpictures-online

    • Thank you Brigid. You are correct that you can’t use someone’s copyrighted material if they don’t want you to. I am trying to figure out specifically what Bravo’s rules are, and the rules for screen shots, since those are the only types of photos I tend to use.

      • NMD, Bravo has never gone after anyone for screen shots, etc. right? Bravo is smart in figuring that all the attention the bloggers are giving their shows is worth much more than going after the bloggers for copyright violations.

      • Brigid Ashwood says:

        🙂 Just looking out for you. I know you’ve got a good handle on it. There is just so much misinformation on the internet and misconceptions about the law. Fact is – if you get sued – it’s you in the courtroom, not us! 🙂

        • Orson says:

          IANAL, as they say, but wouldn’t it be safest just to post a hyperlink to the photo in question and not embed the photo in your blog?

          • Sus says:

            As a reader and poster here, I would have no problem clicking links to view pictures. I come here for the writing and the comments, not the pictures. Although when Boston (I think it’s her) does her thing, I love those 🙂
            Housewives blogs are not worth ending up in the court.

  63. trudie says:

    Good morning! Quick check in before I take kids to the airport -just saw that Bethenny is going to be on CBS Sunday Morning

    • TexasTart says:

      Good morning and thank you, Trudie!

    • TexasTart says:

      That was a good interview to showcase Bethennys’ success. It was a great interview and visuals for someone who doesn’t know her from her shows! The interview was recorded before the split was announced….thus, there was no part of the interview about that. He was basically missing from the entire thing, if this had aired before their split was announced it would have put credibility to rumors that were swirling.

      • Cartwheels says:

        But I did see that they talked about the divorce, the reporter even showed scenes of Bethenny’s appereance on Ellen.

        • TexasTart says:

          Yes, I should have said it was mentioned, however very briefly with a smidge of a clip crying on Ellen.

          • Cartwheels says:

            I got what you were saying, the scenes were filmed before the announced of the split, the voice over of the reporter added the info about the divorce.

  64. VV says:

    Well, Iguana posted her Bethenny’s Divorce Blog. I’m not linking it ( I have mixed feelings about her) I haven’t read it yet. Just letting you know because I saw the tweet.
