Brandi Glanville says she Thinks LeAnn Rimes is Insane / Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Recap

Brandi Glanville says she Thinks LeAnn Rimes is Insane and other Gossip by NoMoreDrama

Brandi Glanville did not disappoint on Watch What Happens Live last night.  While she refused to answer guest Hoda’s question about the “big secret”, she did something better.  Host Andy Cohen first asked Brandi about all the interviews LeAnn Rimes has been giving lately, and then asked “Do you think LeAnn is….”  Brandi said flatly.  “Insane.” Yes I do.”  Then she told Andy that her five year old son told her that WWHL was LeAnn’s favorite show, and she and Andy waved hi.  Later in the show Andy read a text from LeAnn  “Wow the texts from my friend. KISSES and KMA”  explaining that KMA meant Kiss my ass.

More on Melissa’s Ex “Bulldog”

Yesterday morning’s blog had a whole lot of tweets and backstory about Melissa Gorga’s ex-boyfriend Bulldog.  He was busy on twitter yesterday with a few new tidbits that I thought  I’d bring over to the blog.  I sense he’s looking to tell his story.  I’m sure someone is willing to pay for it.

“Let me set something straight I don’t Hate anyone, it’s not in my heart TODAY! Like I said if confronted I will just tell the TRUTH! ;)”  (This one sounds like an invitation to the NJ producers to set up a “confrontation”)

“Hmmm I just found some ingesting pictures with dates on them.. Hmmm”  (I hope he meant interesting.  If Mel was ingesting something – nevermind…)

“Man talk about the possibility of the “perfect storm” coming..”

“I’d be very nice to me if I was that Someone lol”

“Right now there thinking how dare he lol but it’s ok when you do the dirty work to others right!? lol no one knows better than I do..”

“Have you ever heard the saying ” a taste of your on Medicine” lol I have..”

Big Brother Wedding Bells

It’s official.  Big Brother has now produced more successful relationships than the dating series The Bachelor / Bachelorette.  First we had Rachel and Brendan tie the knot, and this weekend it was Danielle Denato and Dominic Briones, who met on Season 13 of the show.  You can read about their wedding here.  Although I watch Big Brother, I had to jog my memory a little to remember Dominic.  From what I remember he and Danielle became friends in the house, and she went against her alliance and tried to save him – and then sulked until she was evicted.  Danielle is easier to remember.  She played the game twice, both times with her estranged dad Evel Dick, Dick won his first time around with the help of some twists – but left the game voluntarily the second time right at the beginning.  The article I read on Danielle’s wedding didn’t mention if Dick attended, but Brendan and Rachel did.  There was also no mention of the “sweetheart” BB couple, Jordan and Jeff, who were also on Season 13.

RHOBH “Home Is Where the Art Is” by BB

Without doing a blow by blow account of the remaining Moroccan restaurant scene, I’m just going to hit the highlights.  It all boils down to Mauricio calling Brandi out, Brandi defending herself, Ken defending Brandi, and Taylor still thinking she’s relevant to the show.  Here goes:

Maur-icky-o tells everyone he’s never been sued, but the three or four times he has been sued, he just picked up the phone and took care of it.  So has he ever been sued or not?

After Brandi tells Maur-icky-o to STFU, he keeps talking to her and Kyle leans over and tells him she wants him to stop this.  He tells Kyle (not Brandi) he’s sorry.

Marisa thinks everyone should back off of this battle and leave it to Brandi and Adrienne.

Ken thinks that the Maloof family, with everything behind them, threatening a single mother is wrong.

After Brandi leaves to go to the restroom, Kyle says she’s no longer going to make any effort to try to bring people together and everybody can F**k off. (First hair flip).

Kim, who keeps adjusting her boobage, has been a single mom a long time and you learn not to say things about people or you jeopardize your job.  To whose job is she referring?

Taylor is telling Camille that what she’s experienced is 10 times worse than anyone else and Yolanda tells her she’s talking nonsense. Taylor talks smack about Yolanda’s husband David and his former marriage.  What that has to do with anything I don’t know.  I think everyone is pretty much over Taylor and her sob story. (I can’t wait to read Yolanda’s blog about this.)

Kyle tells someone across the table that “It’s not about the surrogacy.”  She says it twice.

Yolanda thinks the guys should stay out of it and both she and Lisa think Brandi could get her point across better if she could calm down and take a deep breath and not lose it.

When Kim takes Maur-icky-o’s side, he tells her it’s the first time he’s agreed with her in two years.  That’s kind of sad.

When everyone is leaving, Maur-icky-o tells Brandi it’s not personal.  I’d hate to be on the receiving end of Maur-icky-o’s ire when it’s personal, then.  He admits he doesn’t know the whole story. Ken says it’s a typical man thing (not to get the whole story).  Kyle tells Ken her husband is anything but a typical man.   In the limo, Lisa tells Ken it’s funny how quickly things can change.

Paul and Adrienne at Kyle and Mauricios (photo from Bravotv.com)

Paul and Adrienne at Kyle and Mauricios (photo from Bravotv.com)

Paul and Adrienne have been taking some time from the Brandi toxicity and getting fresh air in New York.  They go for drinks at Kyle and Maur-icky-o’s.  Did anyone notice how Adrienne gave Maur-icky-o a good once over when he greets her at the door?  Adrienne can’t understand why Brandi won’t contact her directly and she’d rather move on.  Is it normal to threaten people with lawsuits when you want to move on?  Wouldn’t that drag things out?

Yolanda at Mohammed's (photo from Bravotv.com)

Yolanda at Mohammed’s (photo from Bravotv.com)

Yolanda sometimes helps her ex Mohammed decorate the properties he develops.  I like that she uses the term decorate instead of design.  She’s not designing his spaces, she’s decorating them.  She thinks it’s important that David, Mohammed, and her get along for the sake of the kids.  Mohammed tells her he wants to hire her to do his next project and she tells him he can’t afford her.

Kim has a psychic who tells her that her future grandkids are playing in her bedroom and there is also a woman who isn’t her mom sitting on the end of her bed.  She also has an open portal in her house.  Moving on.

Kyle and Fayke Resnick go manikin shopping for Kyle’s new store.  It takes a lot of thought and hard work to figure out what kind of manikins should go into your store. (Kyle does a pose on the floor (not the splits) and flips her hair again.)

Brandi goes to dinner with Marisa, her husband Dean, and her brother Paul.  It’s awkward when Marisa says Dean is not her type and she married opposite of what she was normally interested in.  Brandi feels a little sorry for Dean.  Dean produces independent films and Marisa would rather he do studio films to make more money.  Brandi is going to host a class in Vegas and asks Marisa to go.  Lisa is in and Yolanda has also been asked to go.

There is a gallery opening in BH by artist Daniel Maltzman.  Brandi and her friend Jennifer arrive and look great.  Yolanda and Lisa both look stunning.  Taylor, her friend, and Marisa all arrive looking very nicely decked out.  But what the crap was Kyle thinking?  She looks ridiculous in a hideous striped dress and headband around her long wavy hair.  Calling Rachel Zoe; calling Brad Goreski.  Kyle and Kim Richards need styling help – STAT!  While you’re at it you could tell Marisa she doesn’t need to wear ALL her jewelry at one time in her talking heads.

Yolanda negotiates down the price of a painting (photo from Bravotv.com)

Yolanda likes one of the artist’s paintings.  She doesn’t want to pay $14,000 but wants it for a father’s day present for David.  She ends up paying $8,000 for it.  Good negotiation skills, Yolanda.

Too bad Taylor can’t make it to Brandi’s gig in Vegas.  She will be busy doing PSA’s for a Denver domestic violence organization.  Her lawyer/lover/boyfriend is from Denver, isn’t he?

Paris explains that she's performing in front of 30,000 people.  Does she sing? (photo from Bravotv.com)

Kyle will be going to Vegas because she really doesn’t want to miss an opportunity to gather as much gossip as possible and to stir up some controversy.  Maur-icky-o arrives, tells Kyle she looks great, then quickly disappears. Kyle’s niece Paris (who?) is there.  Big whoop.

Marisa talks to Taylor about getting married too young and missing out on her 20’s.  Brandi thinks Dean loves Marisa more than Marisa loves Dean and she’s missing something.

Mauricio gives Ken some Gin but not an apology - awkward (photo from Bravotv.com)

Maur-icky-o tries to impress Ken with a bottle of gin and Lisa and Ken blow him off by telling him they have to leave to go have dinner with Rick and Kathy Hilton.  He runs to his momma Kyle to tell her about it and Kyle also blows him off and tells him to run along.  Poor Maur-icky-o is just not feeling the love lately.

Vanderpump Rules by Jenifer Freeman

For the third installment of Vanderpump Rules, the girls begin with Stassi complaining about how unhappy she is while her BFFs Katie and Kristen try to downplay the situation by telling her that when the storm dies down, they will be riding off into the sunset. For once, Stassi comes off as the more level-headed one as she tells the girls they need to hear her – she’s UNHAPPY. Ironically, it seems to be contagious as Kristen finds out at a photo shoot that one of the fellow models was a former roommate/porn star/lover of her boyfriend of Tom. Although it was years ago – and long before she entered the picture – she is sickened by the revelation and totally uncomfortable in the situation.

Tom is not amused (photo from Bravotv.com)

Later, at Sur, we see Jax lamenting over the hassles of break-ups and the divvying up of the dog, couch, etc. He swears he will not live with a girlfriend again until he is married. Kristen shows up relaying her “introduction” to Cassandra, Tom’s former fling, but Tom is less than sympathetic as he questions why in the world she would have even asked the girl about the extent of the fling since it was so long ago. Kristen storms off until boss Lisa tells her to leave personal life problems at home and to pull it together and tend to her tables. While this is logical advice, it seems laughable considering they are on camera on Bravo, but are rarely actually waiting tables. The show revolves around their drama, plays up the drama and sex between the employees at Sur, and yet admonishes them for bringing it to Sur?!? Not likely.

The next scene Kristen is confronting Stassi about rumors that she’s sleeping with Frank, another bartender at Sur. While Stassi doesn’t fully admit anything, she does concede that they’ve been hanging out a lot. She then is completely distressed about being torn between Frank and Jax. When asked who she should pick, Kristen plays Sweden and says she has no idea what she should do, but in the individual interview states flippantly that this Frank business is a joke and he’s just taking advantage of Stassi’s vulnerability. Later, we see Scheana getting training on the Sur menu seemingly very committed to her new job. Boss Lisa confronts Tom Sandoval about the previous drama with Kristen during a shift. She warns him to leave it at home. Again, it’s a little ridiculous because if they leave all their personal drama out of Sur, there would be no show.

Next, we see Jax whining to Kristen about the Frank/Stassi developments. He asks if they plan on going to Supperclub later, and they say no, but Stassi and Frank are going, so Jax feels the urge to make an appearance as well. The club kicks off with Stassi and Frank taking shots and making out on the dance floor. Following several more shots, Frank begins taking some shots at Jax’s expense liking saying he should send Jax a thank you note. As he makes a break for the bathroom, an annoyed Stassi retorts that if she wanted a drunk juvenile, she would’ve stayed with Jax. With impeccable timing,

Jax pleads his case (photo from Bravotv.com)

Jax arrives while Frank is still MIA, and pleads his case to Stassi saying he is determined to win her back. Teary, she is torn and says she doesn’t know what she wants. He convinces her to leave with him. Much to Frank’s dismay, she does, leaving a drunk and jealous Frank.

The next morning, Kristen and Katie arrive at a distraught Stassi’s apartment. With Frank and another friend, Stassi relates to them that the lying Jax got a girl pregnant in Vegas two months ago. Flip-flopping between suspicion of Frank’s motives for suddenly divulging this information and complete shock, Kristen and Katie skate on thin ice with Stassi, who threatens them they’d better not take up for him even one more time.

Later, when Stassi fails to report to work, Lisa pulls her off the schedule for that night’s shift and the entire following week and replaces her with none other than Scheana, which is sure to rock that boat. Lisa reasons she will get the message as soon as she sees that Scheana replaced her.

Stassi chugs the Christol (photo from Bravotv.com)

Meanwhile, Stassi treats everyone to Jax’s Cristal champagne, as Katie cringes behind her (knowing it will infuriate Jax when he finds out, yet not having the guts to speak up.) Later, Jax returns to the empty yet trashed apartment and realizes Stassi drank his $600 of champagne. He is furious with Frank who he thought was his friend for telling Stassi any such thing. He completely denies the pregnancy rumor as well as all cheating allegations. He packs his stuff and heads out with Tom to stay over at Tom and Kristen’s.

In the last montage of previews, we see that the clip in last week’s episode of guys fighting in a parking lot is in fact Jax and Frank over the beloved Stassi, of course. While this episode certainly offered plenty of drama, it seemed to offer a lot more substance than last week. We got to see the resident bitch Stassi broken-hearted in a very human way, which was refreshing from last week’s junior-high reminiscent cat fights – a definite improvement. Hopefully, we’ll get to know some of the other cast members as well! J

Watch What Happens Live by BB

(photo from Bravotv.com)

Guests:  Hoda Kotb and Brandi Glanville

Andy is wearing glasses.  They have a Beverly Hills manikin who didn’t get hired for Kyle’s store as the bartender.  They talk about the inauguration and how great Kelly Clarkson’s performance was and how great the First Lady looked, blah, blah, blah.

Brandi thought Kyle’s outfit at the art gallery was something her daughter should have been wearing.  Ouch.

It’s not hot for a guy (Vanderpump rules) to wear concealer per Brandi. That’s not done in LA.

Poll question:  Whose side are you on?  Ken or Mauricio?

Hoda wants to know what was said by Brandi (so does everybody else).  Andy tells her they’ll talk about it later.

They spoof Vanderpump Rules by showing Vanderdolls Rules.  I guess it was funny.

Andy thinks it’s so hilarious that Brandi asks Scheana to get her some bread or a drink whenever she sees her. Andy tells Brandi she kind of infers in her book that Leann is Eddie’s sugar mamma.  Brandi says it’s kind of true.  Hoda repeats the saying “The way you got him is the way you’ll lose him.”  Leann thinks Brandi is insane.  Brandi knows Leann watches WWHL because her youngest son Jakie saw a picture of Andy and told Brandi that it’s Leann’s favorite show and she watches it all the time.

Why wasn't Albie the bartender if he was there? (photo from Bravotv.com)

Brandi was definitely surprised by the way Mauricio acted at the dinner and had never seen that side of him before.

Brandi doesn’t know if it’s true Adrienne and Sean Stewart are dating, but hopes it’s not true because it’s a little frightening.

Hoda just had dinner with Bethenny last week and she’s doing OK.  Hoda broke up with her boyfriend and is not dating anyone.

Andy asks Brandi to give a pole-dancing demonstration and they get Albie Manzo from the audience to sit in her seat to watch. Brandi stands up there but doesn’t dance because she says there’s not enough room.  Not surprisingly Andy is more disappointed than Albie.

Leann Rimes tweeted in something like:  Kisses and Kiss My Ass.

Ken predictably wins the poll 76%.

11PM – WWHL: Kristen Johnston and Luke Perry (Bravo)

Note:  There is a new reality show premiering tonight.  It’s called “The Taste” on ABC at 8PM.  This description is quoted from the ABC.com website:

“One blind spoonful could change everything on ABC’s “The Taste.” This new cooking competition show is literally all about taste.

Sixteen competitors, from pro chefs to home cooks, whip up dishes attempting to impress four of the world’s most notable chefs.  The catch is all the dishes will be judged in a blind taste test. In this pressure-packed contest, the taste of a single spoonful can catapult a contender to the top or send him packing.

“The Taste” features no-holds barred chef Anthony Bourdain, British food star Nigella Lawson, expert chef and author Ludo Lefebvre and restaurateur Brian Malarkey. Each of the four culinary superstars and “Taste” mentors – Bourdain, Lawson, Lefebvre and Malarkey – will coach a team of four competing pro and amateur cooks chosen from a nationwide casting call as they vie to create the best tasting dish.

In each episode, the groups will face team and individual challenges with a variety of culinary themes through several elimination rounds. At the end of each episode, the mentors will have to judge the competitors’ dishes blind, with no knowledge of whose creation they’re sampling, what they’re eating, how it was prepared or whom they could be eliminating.”  Sounds interesting.

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. It is so cold this morning. Brrrrrrr. I’m ready for my warm cozy bed. I know it’s 10AM. 🙂

    Brandi thinks LeAnn is crazy? That’s an understatement. Have a great day.

    • TexasTart says:

      Good morning Powell, I noticed it was extra cold in your part of the country…in a lot of the country! Thank you for the info on The Following, for sure I must see! I found the pilot willair again this Friday night on Fox – for anyone else who missed it and would like to see .

      Have a great day and y’all stay warm! 😀

      • BB says:

        Empress of Aiken has a recap of The Following on her site this morning.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Good morning, all!!! I love our weather today. Gorgeous! Stuck in an office, but internet lets me escape and I can see out of our windows and glass entry…sunshiny day. Laineyson was flown here to dj a party…I know, it sounds weird…but it’s true! He is going back to NY today – leaving a sunny 50 degrees going to a cruel 14 degrees. Everybody up there, try to stay warm!!

    • Good Morning…..It’s frickin cold again today. -25 windchill YIKES. I’ll go read the blog now.
      Nice to see Powell on top.

  2. Cartwheels says:

    Good morning.
    I hate when people (ex. Melissa ex BF) tease about a great reveal, this and that.
    If you are going to say something go ahead and say it or ala Brandi STFU.
    I thought a lot about the comments that I read yesterday here and had come to the same conclusion that some of you guys have, if this guy starts talking without evidence (pictures, dated tweets, dated e-mails, etc) then it will just be his word against her and we all know Melissa lies like a pro so it probably would be pinned on Teresa one way or the other and make Melissa as an underdog sympathetic character.
    I would rather this bulldog guy just dissapear because no matter what he says, it is only going to affect Melissa’s and Joey’s relationship (if there was some hanky panky going on during the marriage) and I honestly think that Joey and Melissa deserve to be together for eternity, that is the cross they will have to bear, each other’s company.

    • PJ says:

      I always have to laugh at these Housewives who want to portray themselves as sweet little angels but have married really creepy men.

      • Cartwheels says:

        Maybe because I never bought Melissa’s sweet little angel routine since the beginning, nothing surprises me about her. At the beginning I used to feel bad for Joey Marco as I thought Melissa and her sisters had brainwashed him but then understood that he is a grown up man perfectly capable of making his own decisions and if after seing, living, following the scrip lines that his wife has given him, he hasn’t done anything to change the situation, then he is not a victim, he is a willing participant and Melissa deserves him and he deserves her. His caonstant sex talk to me is just an act to cover his “limitations” but is still gross anyway.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          Oddly enough, I thought Joey wanted to be on the show more than Melissa at first because he kept steal every scene she was in!

          • LaineyLainey says:

            They are equally hungry for the limelight. imo. If this ex-bf comes forward, somehow…SOMEHOW, you all know Tre will get blamed for it.

        • PJ says:

          I never bought the sweet act either.

    • designernailsdiana says:

      Melissa WHO? I’m over NJ they all suck!

  3. BB says:

    Taylor is looking longingly at that bottle of gin above, like she wanted to say “If Ken doesn’t want it, I’ll take it.” Lol.

    • PJ says:

      Taylor looked like a real mess to me in last nights show, she seems to really not like the fact that the focus is off of her and on someone else. She does whatever she can to get it back on her, but it isn’t working this season she comes off looking selfish and bitter.

      • Vegas Chick says:

        I absolutely love YoYo zing at Taylor to stop be so aggressive. Taylor’s TH about the Fosters are going to get her written off the show.

        • pat says:

          Yeah, it’s so interesting, in a revealing sort-of way, how quickly and often Taylor gets aggressive and threatening. hmmmm. And she’d like us to believe she was this fragile flower, unable to defend herself.

    • Cartwheels says:

      LOL, you made me laugh, LOL

    • Vegas Chick says:

      Lol… good catch, BB.

    • melthehound says:

      I was thinking the exact same thing 😆 .. She couldn’t wait for them to open it. I think Ken should have passed the bottle to her and said Cheers.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Yes, I noticed that. I’d be drooling for it, too. Though I prefer vodka. I like free stuff.

    • L.A. Chica says:

      So true!

    • Donna says:

      I noticed the (borrowing a name) Mar icky o reminded Ken to not forget the bottle. If Mar icky o hadn’t reminded him, I bet 10 french hens that Ken would have left it on the shelf.

  4. Jules says:

    My sister, Beth has FARA and is now in a wheelchair. She is married and has 2 daughters. The 11yr old and Beth are doing the 100 mile bike ride in Palm Springs. Dad and the 8 yr old are doing the 5 mile. Lots of charities use this ride. It it the same one Kyle and Maurice rode in on Season One.

    My mom has made a quilt she is offering tickets for $10 each to raise money for curing FARA. Last year someone in DC won the quilt. direct link below.

    • boston02127 says:

      @Jules—I was unsure of what FARA was. I just read about it.
      http://www.curefa.org/mission.html

      It’s nice that your whole family pulling together. That’s what its all about. Best wishes & good luck to them in the ride for a cure!

      • Jules says:

        thank you.
        so proud that Beth rides the 100 miles. She and Natalie biked down to and around the Rose Bowl Saturday. She works very hard to stay strong.

    • L.A. Chica says:

      Good for your sister and her family for getting out there and doing the rides! It’s great that she’s taking FARA head on and empowering herself this way. It inspires me to get out and do something, myself.

    • Powell says:

      I admire your sis Jules. That’s fantastic.

    • Melissa says:

      Two of my children have Friedreich’s Ataxia (FA). Bless your sister for participating in the bike ride. The Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance (FARA) is instrumental in raising funds for research, drugs, clinical trials, etc., in an effort to find a cure or treatment for FA. I’m so pleased to see your post. Please relay my “thank you” to your sister.

      • Jules says:

        Melissa, I pray your children are healthy. Please let them know they can live a very rich life. Beth spoke a few years ago at the National FA convention and she said many young people didn’t realize that children were possible. Beth went to Rice U for grad school and works as an engineer. She will be 44 this year and just now is having to learn hand controls for driving.

        I send you my prayers.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      What a great post, it’s really nice to see people really try to make a difference. God Bless.

    • Rebecca says:

      WOW! That’s a beautiful quilt! I entered!

    • Sus says:

      Bought a ticket. Please be sure and tell your mom how beautiful the quilt is.

      Good luck to Beth and her family in the ride.

      • Jules says:

        Thank y’all for donating! last year a friend of my middle sister won so this year I hope someone I know wins.

        PS don’t forget to print out the receipt for your tax write off.

  5. AZGirl says:

    Last night was great! Ok. Ken and Lisa blowing off Maury was great! Ken and Lisa in the limo was funny.
    A couple of observations. Yes, Kyle looked like a fool at the art gallery. Sometimes I think Kyle is just really out of her league in BH. Everyone else (even Taylor) were dressed appropriately.

    Liked the painting that Yolanda bought. It works in their Malibu home.

    I need to know if anyone noticed Kyle’s parking job at the maniquein (sp?) store? The Maserati was parked terribly. Front wheels were turned in sharply. Bad news for the alignment. Then as Kyle pulled away you see the parking barrier is all broken up and pushed sideways.
    For heaven’s sake that is a $100,000 car and she drives it like a volkswagon. Pity.

  6. Jules says:

    AMAZING job Lisa did of being civil to Maurice. I do have to give Maurice props in realizing that he is now just a tolerance in their lives. But what a baby in running to Vyle and brining it up in public. no class to wait until in the car to discuss.

  7. T-Rex says:

    Just a note that ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterTwoTimingHusbandStealingLypsMcgee(man her name gets longer by the minute, Bravo Fire her stat or her name may become longer than the blog), and her LoserLyingCheatingLawyer were making a rendevous in Denver, he lives outside the city at this point in filming with his lovely wife of 28 years, who at this point still thinks that she is in a loving, rock solid marriage and ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterTwoTimingHusbandStealingLypsMcgee is a friend and would never screw her husband. Oh and can anyone even confirm there were any real PSA’s filmed, I would guess the answer to that is NO. I would bet that LoserLyingCheatingLawyer’s wife was out of town that weekend so that they could have their tryst. Again on the timing of the shows, this Moroccan-gate was filmed BEFORE Bravo brought in the Alcohol-wrangler to keep the glasses out of ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterTwoTimingHusbandStealingLypsMcgee hands so they could film her, from what has been said she gets worse before the Alcohol-wrangler steps in. Ugh wish I could have fast forwarded through the FayeKR shite, c’mon Bravo you know we all hate her she has ZERO fans, edit her out of any further episodes. I know VileKyle has no other friends, as no one will film with the HoofMaloof at this point, yep folks, word is HoofMaloof said she wouldn’t film with Brandi and the rest of the cast said okay then, we won’t film without her, so I don’t think that HoofMaloof will be seen much outside interactions with VileKyle, Murray and SpacemanKim. From this episode, Murray realizes he put his foot in where he shouldn’t and now is trying to make amends, a little to late my friend. I doubt you will ever see another listing or dime from the Vpumps and probably the Fosters are out as well. Way to lose some high-end clients. Also you never know about how life turns out Brandi could some day wind up with money and if she does Murray won’t see a dime of it.

    • LOL on the name! I bet you type REALLY fast! 😛

      • T-Rex says:

        I keep it on a cut and paste note, HA! But yes I type 95wpm, and forget to edit before sending so that’s why a lot of typos, grrrr. Oh and other than a controversial appearance at a DV conference in Denver in July of 2012 there were no PSA’s noted with ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterTwoTimingHusbandStealingLypsMcgee in them, so basically the only person she was “servicing” in Denver is the LyingLoserCheatingLawyer

    • BB says:

      Yolanda’s blog is up. She’s being too kind to Mauricio in my opinion, but the rest of it’s pretty good.

      • L.A. Chica says:

        Yes, I like what she had to say. 🙂

      • VV says:

        BB, I think there is an orchestrated effort here to repair Mauricia’s image. He was getting so many negative tweets last week (until they figured out how to filter them out). Last night was no different. I am sure his behavior has the potential to hurt his business in the short term and I think the ladies are giving him a helping hand by commenting how nice and level headed and all the other b*llsh*t they are saying about him.

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Dates??? For the timeline???

      • T-Rex says:

        Well here’s all I know that ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterTwoTimingHusbandStealingLypsMcgee started schtooping the LyingLoserCheatingLawyer in November/December of 2011 and it was no longer a secret with some of the RHBH housewives by Feb 2012 which is when I believe the Much-married LyingLoserCHeatingLawyer’s wife was interviewed and staunchly denied the rumors of the demise of her 28 year Rock-solid marriage due to one ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterTwoTimingHusbandStealingLypsMcgee. So by July of 2012 cat is out of the proverbial bag and by December LyingLoserCheatingLawyers wife changed her FB status from “married” to “divorced”(may have done this earlier it’s just when I did some sleuthing and noted that it said divorced. The one dinner scene from a couple of weeks back was shot WELL after the initial BH shooting schedule, do we know exactly what the dates for this season’s filming were in total? Okay so in July of 2012 ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterTwoTimingHusbandStealingLypsMcgee goes again to Denver to make an appearance at a DV conference and it was WAY controversial with a lot of folks backing out of the conference because she was going to be there, this is well documented by the Denver Post. Appearance had been arranged by none other than her LyingLoserCheatingLawyer, so they could start “writing” off all the expenses of her constant trips to Denver to “service” the LyingLoserCheatinglawyer. I would bet if someone looked at her tax records I bet there were a whole LOT of DV Psa’s and conferences on tax write-offs in Denver

        • BB says:

          I just checked and the domestic violence people were “flying in” from Denver. Taylor was not going to Denver. It was to take place on a Wednesday.

        • L.A. Chica says:

          Wow. Great detective work, T-Rex!

          I think it’s safe to say Taylor has really dug a hole for herself, and she’s going to have a really hard time getting out of it. Whatever was left of her reputation and however she might have at some point been able to salvage it, she’s blown it. At this point she’d have to show some serious soul searching and remorse to redeem herself.

      • VV says:

        I only got this one so far have to tortur myself and watch again.
        June 23 (Saturday) Paris gig in Brazil that should give me an estimate of the Art event date.
        Need Vegas trip date. This should be easy to find on the net.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      t-rex – I hope mary won’t see a dime of Brandi’s moolah.

  8. Sugar Magnolia says:

    Maur-icky-yo! Huge LOL! Hilarious, BB!

  9. Good Morning Lovelies! I’m baaaack!
    Well, I never really left, but I am back to normal. What a casino….I almost got scammed for $350 of repair that I did not need. Thankfully, my inner b*lls**t voice is very strong and saved the day (as well as my tech wizards)…and the money. Long story….but listen to your inner voices!!

    NMD, BB, & Jen……thanks for the great blog! Lots to comment on but I have a busy morning, so will be back later.

    One thing tho…..Maur-icky-o and his contradictions. BB pointed out his “I have never been sued, but when I got sued 3 times” comment…and I will add to that with his comment to Brandi when he was “apologizing” to her he said….”this is nothing personal, but my personal opinion is…”. So, is it personal or not? If it is your personal opinion, how can it not be taken personal by Brandi? Sigh. He is a man-child!

    Have a great day everybody! Love & Hugs!! 😀

    New post, “A Toxic Life” is up at my place + all the goodies! Enjoy!

    • Boobah says:

      I’m glad your Bullsh*t meter tipped you off before you got scammed! Grrrrr – damn computers!!!

      LOL@manchild!! You and BB picked up some intersting contradictions by Mauricio. I also found it annoying how he ran back to Kyle and gossiped like a school girl. Yet, he claims he hates gossip!

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Yeah, I hate gossip, too. But mostly when other people do it.

        • Called A Princess... says:

          If it is his personal opinion then Brandi has a choice as to how she wants to take it. Personal or not. She is an adult, after all. The word sued has two meanings that come to my mind. The act of being sued, which can be dropped at any time and having an on going case. Cases may have been bought against Mo, but they were dropped for some reason. He seems to think it was because he talked to suing party. JMHO.

  10. RealHousewifeVA says:

    I’m totally shocked about Dani and Dom getting married, but very happy for them! I didn’t see that one coming..although I knew she totally fell for him during BB, I didn’t follow their relationship and had no idea they were dating/engaged/married! How sweet. Not a big Dani fan, but I liked Dom and I think he brings out the best in her. I looked up pics and she looked gorgeous!

    I’m a Brandi fan, but she needs to control her mouth! Now she’s commenting on Marissa’s marriage? I mean, as a divorced women who’s husband constantly cheated on her without her knowledge, she really should just mind her business when it comes to others relationships.

    And also, I have no love for Mego, but really, an ex boyfriend trying to spill beans about her? WHO EVEN CARES? All these people who had been tweeting about wanting to “expose” her for the past 2 seasons and nothing has come out of it, plus Melissa could really care less. They need to find a new storyline for NJ rather than ‘exposing’ eachother.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Hi RHVA – – -I thought stuff had come out. So… stupid, idiotic stuff does come out about her (her alleged working at a strip club, her alleged shoplifting, the warrant, her alleged relationship with a woman, her alleged this, her alleged that). Stuff comes out,… it’s just that NOBODY REALLY CARES about what comes out. I know I don’t.

    • PJ says:

      I agree about Brandi but in this case I think she is ultra sensitive to the issue of one person in a marriage being more in love than the other one because of what happened to her. Then there is the fact that Marissa does seem to talk down her husband a lot, which I feel is totally inappropriate.

    • Beckygrey says:

      I too am a Brandi fan, but I think she is a little out of her league when she makes those comments about Marissa and Dean’s relationship. I do believe that Marissa should have reserved her comments about her husband for a quiet talk of camera. But both Marissa and Brandi are two of a kind

  11. RealHousewifeVA says:

    OMG I just got transferred back to the 90’s in my teenybopper days!!!!!! I’m watching THE VIEW and Boyz 2 Men, 98 Degrees and NKOTB are all on performing!!!

  12. catmom1 says:

    My husband was watching BH with me last night. When Kim was on with her psychic, he turns to me and says, “She never left Witch Mountain”. I really love that man.

  13. Contessa says:

    Lips McGee was disgusting last night at the Moroccan restaurant…throwing shade on Yo’s marriage. Evry marriage is different, and apparently she heard her GF side, who knows the real truth, but to criticize and call it into focus was WRONG. Once again the drunk makes another nasty appearance with those loose rubber lips and that huge forehead.

    All the ladies looked very nice, except Vile, at the art gallery. I loved the dress on Yo – wow can she wear it. She definitely has a great figure! What was Vile thinking – it looked like bad pajamas and that thing around her head – did she think she was going to a roaring 20’s party? Malicio was disgusting as usual and that entire scene with the maloof hoof made me ill. Maloof hoof looks really old and totally plastic in the face. Also she needs to get rid of those nasty extensions and find something more age appropriate. I saw a photo of her with Rod Stewarts young son and would you believe the foll was wearing hot pants???? Can we say desperation?????

    • catmom1 says:

      When I saw Kyle in that outfit, it took me straight back to the early 80’s with Olivia Newton John and her exercise video. Oy…..some looks should never be brought back. That was one of them.

    • PJ says:

      It looked to me like Taylor is super jealous of Yolanda. Yolanda is the real deal everything that Taylor wants to be but isn’t.

  14. Boobah says:

    Thank you NMD, BB, and Jenifer for great a great blog today.

    G’morning all. Cold here today, a beautiful white leyer of snow on the ground but sunny. The snow was really pretty last night – I love that!

  15. WindyCityWondering says:

    Questions! I got questions!
    First, the haunted house really looked like Kathy’s house (that livingroom looked like the one Andy interviewed Kim in after her MIA reunion and the banks of white plantation shutters looked familiar from the prom dress scene) so is Kim still living with her?
    Second, did Bravo edit out a convo at Kyle’s house about the legal letter because Adrienne said she wanted to talk to Brandi personally – it felt like another one of those added scenes (like the miracle and nonexistant skin cream collaboration at Paul’s office)?
    Third, Kyle’s fashion fail at the art gallery, does anyone remember seeing the entire outfit? It seemed like she was filmed from the waist up because I wanted to see her shoes!
    Fourth, Kyle inviting her niece to the Vegas trip? WTH was that?

    • AZGirl says:

      I wondered about the letter and Adrienne saying she wanted to talk to Brandi personally. This may have been filmed before the Moroccan dinner.
      I hear that Paris Hilton needs a job and money. She is currently filming a reality show in eastern Europe. Romania or something like that. Pretty hardcore desperate.

    • VV says:

      I thought the same thing about Adrienne’s comments wanting to talk to Brandi. WTH??!!! You have your lawyers contact Brandi and then you want Brandi to call you?????!!!!! DELUSIONAL…. but I also thought maybe that is why Mauricio was so insistant that Brandi called the A.
      Something tells me between the attorneys involvement and Bravo enforcing TheHoof contract. There is this new toned down “oh if she just calls” me crap.

    • T-Rex says:

      Regarding Paris Hilton, she can’t get a paying gig anywhere any longer, note it’s true there is an expiration date on relevance, she is yesterday’s news and she has been trying to peddle herself back into the limelight. Even the Stalkarazzi could care less about her, the KarTrashians are also on their way out too. Betcha VileKyle makes a plea for Paris to be on the show once they get rid of HoofMaloof and ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterTwoTimingHusbandStealingLypsMcgee although I don’t think the audience needs two braindead folks from VileKyle’s family on the show, so would assume that SpacemanKim would also be transitioned out to make room for the VapidHeadedParis

      • BB says:

        What did it mean when Paris said she was “closing” for someone in Vegas (J-Lo?). I’ve heard of opening acts, but closing? If I were there to see a star perform, I would not hang around for a “closing” act.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          yeah, I was wondering the same thing…closing?

          I would have asked: ” Paris, do you mean, youi’ll be playing as people are walking out of the venue???”

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          Guessing a closing act is needed to clear the venue….sort of like Melissa at Beatstock.

        • lizzle says:

          Her latest thing is DJing, so maybe after the headliner performs… she plays music to keep the party going through the night. This is just a guess… but I know she is trying to DJ now.

          • Called A Princess... says:

            It is a DJ term and it does not define the importance of either DJ. in fact a person can open and close with some person spinning in between. I also am not sure Paris needs money. I think she wants attention. She is also not know for being very smart. JMHO.

            • Called A Princess... says:

              Paris is worth anywhere from 100 million to 1.3 billion dollars. she seems to be looking for face time. IMO.

              • lizzle says:

                I don’t want to admit this… but I do follow her on twitter. I am fascinated by pop culture and public figures like her. She is definitely rich! I bet she has never flown commercial in her entire life. But she does crave the limelight. She has gotten some bad reviews for her DJing. People (like her one time BF Afrojack) saying that all the songs are already cued up for her entire set. I dunno… I can’t say it wouldn’t be nice to live the kind of life that she does… I could definitely deal without flying commercial ever again. It is even hard to get an extra bag of peanuts these days… and forget about the WHOLE can of soda that used to be a given when ordering a beverage.

            • L.A. Chica says:

              Thank you explaining that, closing a show was a new concept for me, but now it makes sense.

  16. AZGirl says:

    I realized I had screwed up viewing the Taylor comments about Yolanda two days ago. I thought Taylor was talking about Yolanda’s marriage to Mohammed but no it was Foster’s marriage to Linda Thompson? she was referring to? Well Hells Bells it is just getting very confusing in BH when everyone who is anyone sleeps with their best friend’s spouse. The only one not swinging is Ken and Lisa (exception to the swing in their backyard) 🙂

  17. VV says:

    Marisa’s Blog is up. I thought she and Brandi were getting along good. I’m having a hard time figuring out who Marisa is after reading her blog. Hmmmm

    • Contessa says:

      Her blog caught me by surprise as well. I would never publicly say my H was not my type and that I felt like I missed something because I got married young. Maybe she is simply very honest about it and has discussed this with her H. However it give a skewed view of her marriage to outsiders that do not know them. Wishing for vistas of partying like you are in your 20’s is terribly over rated. I wouldn’t revisit my 20’s, early 30’s as I like my life after and now much better. Maybe it is because I truly know who I am at this point. But that is me and I can’t walk in her shoes.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      She’s (Marisa) probably stinging from Brandi’s talking heads about her (Marisa’s) marriage. Somebody else here mentioned that Brandi should stop commenting on people’s marriages. I don’t care if the husband has two concubines surgically attached to him, just STFU about other people’s marriages, Ms. Brandi.

    • RealHousewifeVA says:

      I think she does like Brandi, but saw those comments Brandi made about her marriage and suggests that Brandi not concern herself with Marissa’s marriage. I agree with her. It’s almost as if Brandi was jilted by her relationship that she suddenly feels the need to call everyone else out about theirs.

    • Beckygrey says:

      I think that you have to take into consideration that these women don’t see the TH or the entire show until we do. I think that it hurt her feelings hearing what Brandi said, but she has only herself to blame. She has to realize that Brandi loves her husband and her marriage and would do anything if things were different. So Brandi thinks that Marissa is ungrateful for her marriage. I’m sure they get pass this incident.

      • Called A Princess... says:

        Brandi wouldn’t know a sophisticated marriage if it was right in front of her. She wants to be in the middle of other peoples relationships because she does not have one of her own. She needs to stop being the critic until she can model her own successful relationship. She just appears to be bitter at, this point. The relationship with Eddie seemed to have problems that could not easily be fixed. Relationships take two people and we only get her side on this show. JMHO.

        • L.A. Chica says:

          What is a “sophisticated marriage”? I’ve never heard that term used before.

          As for Brandi’s marriage with Eddie having problems, yeah — he’s a major philanderer, possibly a sexaholic. He didn’t engage in just one affair, he had MANY women on the side, often at the same time. That’s not a sign of someone who is merely unhappily married, that’s the sign of someone with a pathological problem.

          • Called A Princess... says:

            Lucky for us, we do not get our morals from Bravo and it’s cast of malcontent fame rats. That being said, I would not get in the middle of any Hollywood marriage, and take it at either face value or any one persons word. It seems to be a Personality Business based on perception, not reality.

            A “sophisticated marriage” is one based more on set term agreements and less on romantic expectations.

            • L.A. Chica says:

              Um… Wow. That sounds terribly presumptuous of you. Sorry, but you sound very bitter.

            • Beckygrey says:

              Sophisticated sounds like a contractual agreement. I think in marriage there should be expectations but both people need to agree on those expectations. Sophisticated maybe you’re expressing the every day of marriage but I want the romance to be apart of the day to day of marriage. I believe Brandi wants Marissa to appreciate her husband. She wished that her (ex) husband would have been like Dean. I don’t think she meant it meanly just a “heads up Girlfriend” kind of way.

              • L.A. Chica says:

                Beckygrey, CAP seems to think “Hollywood” marriages are different, i.e. “sophisticated.” I think that’s presumptuous and insulting.

  18. WindyCityWondering says:

    Has anyone figured out the “principle” that Mauricio was refering to in his half assed attempt at an apology to Brandi?

  19. T-Rex says:

    It should also be pointed out that Big Brother has a better track record with Relationships and Marriages than that StinkyStankySkankyMessMillionaireEscortService Bravo keeps trying to shove down our throats!

  20. BB says:

    For the timeline, assuming this is the party the ladies attended.
    Daniel Maltzman Art Gallery Grand Opening Party in Beverly Hills on June 16, 2012

    • BB says:

      That was a Saturday, so the girls went to Vegas on Tuesday, the 19th of June and the Denver people flew in for Taylor’s PSA, the 20th (Wednesday).

      • T-Rex says:

        And from the information on the legal action looks like that took place around the beginning of July 2012, also to note the HoofMaloofs had filed legal separation paperwork in July 2012, which means that yes according to the timeline the secret has to be the HoofMaloofs were already separated. Also in the HoofMaloofs divorce “lies” she was trying to sell to the press stated that in July of 2012 was when Paul allegedly hit her, which we all know is false so let’s start watching the HoofMaloofs eye right about now, again they were filming the show during this time, if Bravo for a MINUTE thought they had a “real”(not a fake abuse situation like ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterTwoTimingHusbandStealingLypsMcgee) abuse situation on their hands during filming would have certainly done something about it, if only to ward off any lawsuits that might have come into play had they not intervened.

    • T-Rex says:

      So this is right before ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterTwoTimingHusbandStealingLypsMcgee and LyingLoserCheatingLawyer were “found” out by his wife which happens in July of 2012, so the whole PSA excuse, was as stated her excuse to “service” LyingLoserCheatingLawyer under the guise of a PSA for DV

    • Kansas Girl says:

      BB, how did you know I was yearning for specific dates for the timeline? Thanks!

      • T-Rex says:

        KG I posted below some information on the timeline of this season and I am now more confused than ever. Paris Trip is July13th, ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterTwoTimingHusbandStealingLypsMcgee trip to Denver July 23rd or there about. Las Vegas happens prior to the Paris Trip, The HoofMaloofs file Legal Separation on 07/29/12, and according to the documents they were living apart before the legal split. The HoofMaloof “claims(LIES)” she was physically abused by Paul in July of 2012, with Bravo cameras rolling during this time, it’s clear that this was a completely lie. Can you post the timeline you have so far??

        • Kansas Girl says:

          My tmeline is a mess. I keep adding stuff to it and it’s not organized now. I’ll work on it!

          • T-Rex says:

            No wonder with the Bravo editing from Hell sheesh, the Paris trip was CLEARLY before the Vegas Trip. TheHoofMaloof wasn’t going because she had sent the legal letter out and said she wasn’t filming with Brandi any longer and then most of the ladies said they weren’t filming without her, the fact that Paul wasn’t living with her during any of this seasons filming as their legal separation is just 2 weeks after the Paris trip, and the documents stated at the time they weren’t living together for quite some time.

    • VV says:

      BB, I hadn’t read your comment when I posted above about timeline.

  21. T-Rex says:

    Hopefully this wasn’t already posted but thinking that SheereeSheBeHavingNoMoney would be happy to have that Bravo paycheck right about now since she lost the legal battle against her former attorneys to the tune of 100K(plus legal fees) and now she is owing the Gub-mint too!

    http://www.tmz.com/2012/12/30/real-housewives-of-atlanta-sheree-whitfield-sued-by-lawyers/.

  22. L.A. Chica says:

    Bravo is still trying to decide whether or not my post is worthy of inclusion on Marisa’s blog, but here’s what I said:

    “Here’s my distillation of what Brandi is saying to you: “Marisa, you have a lovely family and a husband who is a good man who loves and adores you. DON’T MESS THIS UP.”

    Seriously, hearing the way you talked about Dean made me cringe and I thought it was very nice and appropriate of Brandi to try to redirect you back to your husband rather than blathering on about other men you find attractive. I can’t imagine any man not feeling stung by their wife talking that way, whether he shows it or not.

    So wise up: the grass is not greener, and love is a decision.

    And if you want more income in your household so you can have more diamonds, as you said in your online video, then maybe you should try to produce a movie yourself, see if you can get a studio film going.

    Best of luck to you.”

    In my opinion, I would welcome a girlfriend slapping me upside the head if she saw that I was behaving foolishly and in a way that could lead to a doomed marriage. There are a LOT of single women in Los Angeles who would be thrilled to have Dean as a partner in love and would be happy to swoop him up if Marisa were careless enough to let her marriage fall apart because of her insensitivity. Marriage is work and love IS a decision.

    • PJ says:

      I absolutely agree with this. I didn’t like what Marissa was saying about her husband and her marriage, she went too far with it saying things over and over and at different functions. Brandi was basically saying appreciate what you have because you don’t want to lose it. I agree with Brandi, I felt very uncomfortable with all the things Marissa was saying and I kept thinking this is really what you want to say. Brandi is getting a little bit beat up here today about this but Brandi was spot on in my book, and I understand why she would say what she said.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Marisa may be nervous and like Brandi, she says things in an awkward manner. To me her points were that she was surprised that opposites attract (Dean vs her image of the hot guy), that she loves her husband and he isn’t a sex symbol kinda guy, and that she married young and wonders if she missed out on doing single girl stuff. It is clear to me that she loves Dean and is secure in her relationship with him. And in her TH and blog she is apologizing for come off like she threw her hubby under the bus.
      Brandi is still feeling the burn from her ugly and public divorce and doesn’t want her new friend to take her marriage for granted.

      • BB says:

        Agree WCW. I don’t think Marisa would ever mean to dis her husband. The only thing I don’t like that he said was that he wished he would do studio films for the perks. It makes her sound a little materialistic instead of wanting her husband to do what makes him happy and supporting him. JMO.

        • BB says:

          Darned “s” key. “She” said “she” wished he would do studio films instead of independent films.

        • Mene Seela says:

          I’ve seen Marissa on Selling LA. I was surprised that her own home looked a little ordinary and exibited wear and tear. ot the image I had of her at all. I think she worries about her husband’s professional choices.

          • L.A. Chica says:

            Marisa can always gef a job if she wants more (is that why she joined RHIBH?). Lord knows she has the connections — I was serious about suggesting she give trying to produce a studio film a go. Maybe then she’d appreciate what her husband does for a living, and who knows, maybe she’d be great at it and find fulfillment.

            I really really REALLY want to like her, and maybe she’ll win me over again, but she is coming across to me as a bit if a gold digger. Like maybe when she was very young and married a Zanuck she thought she’d be living a glamorous, high lifestyle, but that didn’t happen and now she’s disappointed. I hope she really does love him for who he is and not for his name or his chosen career path.

            • BB says:

              She does have a job. She sells real estate.

              • L.A. Chica says:

                She does? Well, then why is she after Dean to make more money?

                If he’s being lazy, then I can understand her frustration. But if he’s not making as much as she thinks he should because he prefers to make independent films then that’s his choice.

                And just as she doesn’t like Brandi calling her out on national TV, she should show her husband the same courtesy she wants to be given by not complaining on national TV that he doesn’t earn enough for her. If she really wants to help his career she should show more public support, IMO.

          • L.A. Chica says:

            Question: I’ve never seen Selling L.A. What kind of properties do they sell?

              Selling LA shows homes for sale in the 1-7 million dollar range.

              I have the feeling Dean “works” but she is the provider $$. Some women don;t wantthat muh pressure.

              • L.A. Chica says:

                If his films are going into production then he’s getting paid. Personally I don’t see anything wrong with her earning more money, but maybe she feels differently.

                I looked up Dean Zanuck’s credits on IMDB.com and he’s worked a lot over the years but hasn’t produced many films yet. He’s youngish enough, though, and imo as a producer he stands to potentially earn a lot more money in the long haul making independent films, if they’re successful. It would be different if he were a writer or director. And he probably has a trust fund that will pay out later, or will at least cover their children’s education.

                But anyway, is it more important to live a life of substance and do something you love that’s fulfilling or to make money the priority and revel in material wealth? The two aren’t necessarily mutually exclusive, but one has to take priority over the other. Maybe they disagree on the answer to that question.

                I have to say that certain aspects of Marisa’s personality remind me of Adrienne and Taylor: her dismissive talk about Dean (“I’d rather snuggle with my child than with Dean”) is much like how Adrienne treated Paul. And her wanting more money so she can have more diamonds reminds me of Taylor and her desire to live in Beverly Hills, always wanting to keep up appearances.

                I sincerely hope I’m wrong about Marisa, she does appear to have many good qualities, too.

                • Rebecca says:

                  I wonder if this was filmed before Dean’s father died. He was a BIG time movie producer and probably left his heirs a fortune.

                  • L.A. Chica says:

                    It appears so. Richard Zanuck passed away July 13, 2012. He is survived by his wife, so it’s not clear whether anything was inherited by the sons just yet.

      • L.A. Chica says:

        If that’s what Marisa intended to say, then she sure said it awkwardly. I can understand something like, “Dean wasn’t the kind of guy I was attracted to (past tense) but he won my heart” or “and yet I fell madly in love with him and here we are.” Instead she came across sounding disappointed, like she was wondering how the heck she ended up with this guy when it’s men like Eddie Cibrian that she thinks (present tense) are hot. It was completely insensitive and rude and cruel. If Dean had said anything like that about her I’d have thought he was a jerk.

        As for being secure in the relationship, that may be so but I think Brandi is right to warn her not to take that for granted. A person can only take so much disrespect and public humiliation before they start to ask themselves, “Why am I putting up with this?”

        I’m glad Marisa has apologized, and I hope she’s apologized to her husband.

        I agree that Brandi is trying to be helpful to her new friend, she doesn’t want to see her blow the good thing she has. I also think that Brandi is mindful of the Zanuck children and doesn’t want to see them go through what her own boys had to endure in her and Eddie’s divorce. Remember what she said to Scheana about hoping Eddie and Leanne never get divorced so they dont have to go through that pain again? Brandi is very protective of children.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Nicely said LA Chica – I don’t doubt that her intentions are good, but giving her advice personally is one thing, doing it in her talking heads is another. But still, she did mean well…it’s not received well, when it’s done so publicly (the giving of advice).

        • PJ says:

          I know if I said those things about my husband would be hurt.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            mine too…I do wish he made more money. I wish I made more money, too. He wishes I made more money. But we don’t tell each other that. It’s a given.

            • L.A. Chica says:

              Of course you don’t say it, because you love and respect each other and don’t want to make each other feel inadequate. 🙂

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        The way Marisa talked about her husband reminded me very much of the way Adrienne treated Paul. I don’t think that her being dismissive of her husband or complaining he doesn’t make enough money or that people in first class are more respectable than those in coach is a sign of her being awkward. I think that is who she is the other mask is her persona for the show.

        Although, I’m not quite sure why Brandi thought it was her place to tell her this especially because she was still dealing with the fall out over the last time she crossed a line with someone.

        • L.A. Chica says:

          Yes, exactly – it was very much reminiscent of Adrienne’s treatment of Paul, and that’s why it set off red alarms in my head.

          As for Brandi, I think she likes Marisa and Dean and doesn’t want to see their marriage or children suffer because of the way Marisa thoughtlessly speaks on national TV about her husband.

          I know on the surface that sounds ironic, but Brandi has a year and a half of experience on this show over Marisa, and while Brandi’s mouth gets her into trouble mostly because of her liberal use of the f-bomb, she doesn’t blithely make disrespectful comments about people she supposedly loves. If she’s going to say something bad, it’s in response to something the other person has either said or done. To me that’s a big difference.

          • Called A Princess... says:

            ” The road to Hell is paved with good intention.” Brandi’s thinks aloud too much. She needs to stay out of other peoples relationships. She comes off as being immature and meddlesome. JMHO.

            • L.A. Chica says:

              Her delivery is often immature but she’s a wise observer and her motivations are in my opinion far more mature than that of Kim, Kyle, Taylor, and Adrienne. Not sure about Camille.

              • Called A Princess... says:

                You might prefer her delivery in a pretty package. I find it tiresome. She is not smart, she is a smart a$$. Big difference. I get that Brandi is in a certain amount of pain, I am not sure why that is entertainment. JMHO.

                • L.A. Chica says:

                  I disagree. She may not be educated but she’s a keen observer.

                  • Called A Princess... says:

                    I am not talking about her being educated. I am talking about the disciplined to know what is socially acceptable behavior. Children are keen observers. The issues that cause problems for Brandi, have less to do with observation and more to do with repeating intimate information based on gossip, whether that information is true or not. She is not doing it to make the world a better place, but because she want to make a better life for herself, by being on a Bravo show. I am not sure her goals are lofty enough for admiration. JMHO.

                    • Beckygrey says:

                      “The issues that cause problems for Brandi, have less to do with observation and more to do with repeating intimate information based on gossip, whether that information is true or not.”CAP well that would fit Kim and Kyle….because both of them spread the same gossip Kim to both A and P at Maurico party….Kyle told Faye and Faye came guns a blearing. and Maurico has open conversation about the situation…so if Brandi is guilty throw the rest in the pot with them

      • PJ says:

        Someone needs to tell Marissa to zip it. Were is Kelly the voice of reason?

  23. Mene Seela says:

    Mauriky-o did not say he had been sued 3 times. He received 3 cease and duh-cyst letter. I assumed these were related to his RE business, not personal.

    I thought that whole Morrocan party was just strange. Did they eat? Were they entertained in their private room? Everypne was sitting across the room from each other and yelling at the peron on the other side.
    I was LMAO when Taylor grabs Camille and Brandi’s hands and screams that the single girls have to stick together. They both looked like they wanted to punch her drunk-face.

    • PJ says:

      He actually did say he was sued three times, and his phone calls ended it. I don’t know what he meant but that is what he said.

      • L.A. Chica says:

        You’re right, he did was sued three times, but I think he misspoke and meant to say he’d been threatened with suits three times.

      • Mene Seela says:

        Oh now I ave to watch that horrid episode again. LOL. I believe you – I thought I heard him say letters about lawsuits.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          He kind of said both…
          He said that he had never been sued and the 3 times that he was sued (he is getting a lot of flack for the contradiction, but IMO it was clear he meant that he had never went to trail or had extensive litigation) , that he made a phone call and it was done with and it never went past the letters.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Yeah, he didn’t say what he meant. it happens. It’s always easier when a person means what they say or when they say what they mean. But like I said, it happens. He’ll be a lot more careful in the future, I’m sure.

            • Called A Princess... says:

              Lainey he should not be held to a higher standard then any of the others on the show. They all miss speak at one time or another. When they are characters that we like, they get a pass, when we are mad at them, we will send a large amount of time parsing their words and meaning. A person can be sued and yet not go through to the end of a case. More cases are dropped or settled then go to trial. IMO.

    • BB says:

      Meene Seela, in last night’s episode Mauricio said, and I quote: “Bottom line is I can tell you right now I’ve never been sued in my life and I’ve actually the three or four times I’ve ever been sued, I’ve picked up the phone, I call up the other person and it ends, no, no IT ENDS! ” It might not have been what he meant, but it is what he said.

      • BB says:

        He then says it’s never gone past the letter. So I guess you could say he technically has never let it get to that point.

        • BB says:

          So you are correct in the end result, Mene. He was never sued and only got letters.

          • T-Rex says:

            And I would bet that most of them had to do with Property Liens as that is about as heavy or deep most real estate lawsuits go, unless an agent is sued for misrepresentation of a property,

            • BB says:

              Yes, I wouldn’t think his letters would have to do with liable or character assassination or such. A little different.

  25. WindyCityWondering says:

    Thank you VV for bringing Mauricio’s mama’s tweets to the chat last night. He must really be getting the viewers heat for his borish behavior if his mom is trying to defuse the situation. His wife is constantly collecting intell on all the wives and I don’t believe that he doesn’t know the details of Adrienne’s letter to Brandi! Betting Kyle’s blog will be about how not a typical man her husband is and that she will not post it until she has read all the other’s blogs!

    • BB says:

      See seems to be one of the last blog posters most weeks so you’re probably right.

    • T-Rex says:

      I agree the HoofMaloof most CERTAINLY told VileKyle and Murray what the letter said, probably even showed it to them. At that point in filming the HoofMaloof was only speaking to VileKyle, Murray and apparently FayeKR. LisaVpump, Yolo and Marisa were not speaking to her and of course Brandi wasn’t. SpacemanMajorKim is just again there for wallpaper I don’t know if she even knows who she is talking to.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Did you get the feeling that Kim’s ghosts in the house was a scene like doing the laundry last season? She may be sober but she still isn’t doing well in the group settings.

        • T-Rex says:

          As I noted below she has gone from contemplating her navel to contemplating her boobs which is a step “up” and yes I think she has a hard time in a group and an even harder time when that group is drinking. I am not in AA but we have members here on the blog that are and they will tell you the last place you need to be while in recovery is around alcohol. So I think a lot of the outings she didn’t show or came late or left early because she was uncomfortable with all that alcohol around and I don’t think she is very sociable, she has led a completely sheltered life and when acting was over she was probably a “kept” woman by her former husband JMO

          • Called A Princess... says:

            Kim was married twice and had children with 3 different fathers. The boyfriend that was murder was involved in a financial scheme to collected money from 8,000 elderly investors and ended with losses of $150 million. Kim is more like her mom then she might appear to be, at first glance.. JMHO.

            • L.A. Chica says:

              Yikes! Was Kim aware of what kind of person he really was or did she find out later?

              • Called A Princess... says:

                I am not sure how much Kim knew. The family pathology is that of users, gold digging and violence propagated by the mother, Big Kathy. All the daughters were raised by a criminally savvy black hole, that could never be satisfied, but also was unwilling to personally work for her lifestyle. JMHO.

        • Beckygrey says:

          I was thinking the same thing. They can just leave these scenes out IMHO

  26. shamrockblonde says:

    oddly enough, all I could think of when Maury went rushing off to Kyle to whine, was Phaedra’s husband calling Kenya a copy-cat in that whiny voice – they both acted like spoiled children that did not get their way –

    perhaps Marisa was going for shock value with her comments at dinner – trying to increase interest in her on the show and then realized too late that it was not such a good idea – not sure how I feel about her – loving Yolanda Brandi and Lisa – but Lisa – please – please – drop the Vanderpump Rules show – much as I love you, I can honestly say that I would not feel comfortable eating – or drinking at your establishment, lest I catch something – show us the class that your place has – not the drunken idiots who are running amok behind the scenes –

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      Just like Lisa made Adrienne come to her for a personal one on one apology, IMO, Mauricio will have to do the same with Ken. Lisa, at the dinner, said they were old style -to me that means manners, chivalry and being responsible for what you do and say. Mauricio’s apology to Brandi was a non apology justification for his words/actions. Mauricio’s bottle of gin was not an apology or peace offering, he was trying to avoid having to actually apologize.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        What exactly does Mauricio owe Ken an apology for? Because he dared to disagree with him?

        In Lisa’s blog, she down plays Ken’s reaction to the ‘gift’ and says he was just winding Mauricio up but IMO it was the height of rudeness. He point blank said he didn’t like it and he didn’t want to even try it then handed it back to him.

        I don’t beleive this is about Brandi for one minute. IMO It’s because Maurico didn’t get on the take down Adrienne train that Lisa has been conductor of for a while now. Don’t get me wrong, I get and understand why Lisa wants to get back at A but they should resent other people who aren’t going to be part of the ‘freeze out’.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Apparently, Mauricio was trying to make nice. So you think it was a peace offering but not an apology. I think that’s what Ken called it. A peace offering. Some viewers call it an attempt at an apology. If he wanted to apologize, I think he would have.

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            I agree, if he wanted too he would have. I also feel (and agree) that one wasn’t owed.

          • Beckygrey says:

            Mauricio is the one that said “all you have to do is pick up the phone.” Pick up the phone and apologize for being rude. I don’t think Ken thinks Mauricio has to agree but he has to be a gentlemen in his dealing.

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          Mauricio was very dismissive to Lisa about her integrity and the tabloid story selling accusation made by Adrienne. Ken had to get Mauricio’s attention and ask that he listen to what Lisa was saying. Mauricio’s response was who cares. So I see a husband defending his wife’s integrity and asking a borish asshat to actually listen to what she was saying to him. In my world, Mauricio owes Ken and Lisa an apology and a bottle of gin isn’t an apology.

          • L.A. Chica says:

            ITA with everything you say here, WCW.

          • VV says:

            Exactamundo, Wndy!

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            I don’t see it that way at all.

            Many, many months had passed since Adrienne made the ‘selling stories’ comment (which was confirmed by Camille that an editor some rag had been telling the rest of the cast that) and in the end, not only did nothing become of it but it gave Lisa much more fan support and hurt Adrienne. So, at that point for Mauricio to ask her if she really gives a sh!t IMO wasn’t being dismissive of the upset it would have caused at the time, it was more about why is something Adrienne said months and months ago now being used to deflect from what Brandi did? In the same way they keep bringing up “friends don’t sue friends” comment? Because it paints Adrienne as a hypocrite? Okay…and….does that mean Brandi gets a free pass?

            I know Brandi likes to think of herself as ‘badass’ and tell people to STFU but doesn’t get how a C&D letter is how rich people say the same thing.

            As far as ‘selling stories’ goes. it’s nothing new and goes beyond the RH franchises. Everyone denies being the one to do it but clearly someone is.

            • L.A. Chica says:

              It appears Adrienne does it, not sure about the others. Lisa says she doesn’t sell stories, and I believe her.

              Yes, the accusation was made several months before, but Adrienne had never apologized and so the friction was still there, unresolved until they finally sat down for a drink *this* season and Adrienne gave an insincere “apology.”

              Regardless, I don’t think it matters how much time had passed — that kind of accusation is serious and is a big deal. And I don’t think Lisa was using it as a deflection but was asking Mauricio why he was getting involved in this and why was he so intent on defending his friend Adrienne? Where were he and his wife and their indignation when A was making such a serious false accusation against their friend Lisa? If I were Lisa and Ken that would make me think twice about their friendship.

              So, it’s not a question of the passage of time, it’s a question of loyalty and principles.

              As for a Cyst and Deceased (lol) letter being a rich person’s STFU, you’re helping to make Ken’s point. It costs nothing to be on the receiving end of a STFU, except maybe a little ego. But it cost Brandi at least $2,000 in legal fees to be the recipient of Adrienne’s C&D, not to mention her own time spent with lawyers.

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                But what Brandi opened her mouth about might have cost Adrienne a lot more than money.

                • L.A. Chica says:

                  How so? What Brandi said was true, according to everyone who seems to know what it is, so it wasn’t slander or character assassination. And it was of a personal nature. I just don’t think it compares: something personal to hide (true) vs implying a willingness to betray another’s confidence for money (false).

              • VV says:

                Also, everybody seems to forget about cook bernie and all the evil things he said about Lisa. Adrienne refused to conden him when asked about it on WWHL. THAT SPOKE VOLUMES TO ME!

                • rabblerouser2010R says:

                  I don’t think anyone is forgetting it. I think everyone is one the same page as far as Adrienne can be low down. I think where the group splinters off is when just because Adrienne is low down, it doesn’t mean the rest can’t get dirt. Personally, I don’t think that any of these ladies are above reproach or criticism . Of course, the same can be said for almost anyone, but for the fact that most of the rest of us aren’t on reality tv.

    Whew after much googling July 2012 was a Verrrrry Busy month for the RHBH cast:
    1. TheHoofMaloofs filed for “legal” separation on July 30th. 2012
    2. ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterTwoTimingHusbandStealingLypsMcgee was in Denver from the 21st-23rd(could be more dates but for sure those) lying to a DV conference about her abuse and sleeping with her much-married LyingLoserCheatingLawyer
    3. In the days just after this conference the Wife of LyingLoserCheatingLawyer finds out that her marriage is no longer Rock-solid, LyingLoserCheatingLawyer leaves ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterTwoTimingHusbandStealingLypsMcgee but then decides to leave his wife instead by mid August
    4. RHBH descides to make a GirlsGoneWildish weekend in Vegas July somewhere around the 19th-23rd.
    5. The HoofMaloof “claims” that in July of 2012 Paul abused her and gave her a black eye, mind you while cameras were in full filming mode, and not a single person knowing the history of this show and the abuse allegations, stepped in to stop Paul or to have HoofMaloof file charges or ban Paul from filming any longer, or notifying the police just in case Paul would do something more harmful to the HoofMaloof. Or get her some DV help(which would have made her story this season more interesting but alas she lied and made it all up they couldn’t)
    6. TheHoofMaloofs having legal papers sent to Brandi to STFU about their impending divorce and that they were already separated before filing for legal separation.
    7. Murray has decided he made a complete ass of himself in trying to do the Brandi “takedown” and realized he just alienated a whole lot of business for the sale of the HoofMaloof home, and tries to give Ken and Lisa some booze and a schmooze as Ken and Lisa do the WE’RE DONE walk, stage right.

    Faye made a statement that you are either born with design mojo or you aren’t. IMO, Yolanda was born with it and Faye has no idea what that really means. I love seeing the inside of Yolanda and Lisa and Mohammed’s homes – very different styles but very well executed. Kyle’s house looks like grandma’s hand me downs (no offense to grandmas or grandmas’ furniture) mixed with I want to be cutting edge too.

    • VV says:

      That was a very Count LuAnn statement Fake made.

    • AZGirl says:

      Yolanda does have an “eye” for style. Faye is just hilarious with her name dropping. I am beginning to see Kyle as really unsophisticated/wordly. Especially compared to Yolanda and Lisa. Both Yolanda and Lisa will not have ANYTHING to do with Faye.

          • T-Rex says:

            VV Exactly, and well Lisa likes a Bentley anyway, HA. But yes it takes a lot more planning and thought do what Ken did for Lisa

              Lately I’ve been thinking that their money/materialism is just plain gross. I’ve never been into fashion (couldn’t afford it anyway) but I do like to look good and imo I manage to do so without spending $1,000’s on shoes and handbags. I do have a favorite purse that cost me a pretty penny but I don’t think my pennies are quite as pretty as those in BH

              • WindyCityWondering says:

                I find that those housewives who have money and materialistic trappings don’t talk about it and those who don’t have it but want it desperately focus on it too much.

                • iceNfire says:

                  I’m thinking Yolanda, I loved how she showed up in Ojai dressed for Ojai while the others were dressed for BH.

                    Yep, it’s so true. WCW hit the nail on the head and you did, too: Yolanda is the wealthiest and has the least need to flaunt it. The others looked a bit like they were overcompensating.

                    Even at the gallery, while they all looked lovely (except for Kyle) I’ve never gotten that dressed up for an art opening. And Yolanda did mention that she only wore a dress because Brandi said she was going to.

    So last night I was watching a little bit of the repeat of Sunday’s RHOA and my husband walks in the room and watches for a few seconds and in walks Kenya and he says, “Hey look it’s Beyonce!”
    I die!
    My husband is famous in our family for his bad “celebrity” shout outs!

    Then I tell him the one guy use to play for the NFL, so he is walking out and I googled his name and tell him it’s Kordell Stewart and he says from his office “Oh yeah, he use to play for the Steelers, wow he really looks good, he use to have terrible acne.” LOL!! I just thought that was pretty funny, I wonder if he was doing steroids cuz I know they cause acne…..

    • L.A. Chica says:

      Steroids cause acne? I didn’t know that. Can they also cause depression?

      • LaineyLainey says:

        yes to the acne. And I’ve seen RAGE more than depression. But steroid users are known to have mood swings.

        • L.A. Chica says:

          Interesting… I’ve heard they’re sometimes used by high school football players, but I don’t know how they would get a hold of them.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Oh girl, it’s not hard. With that saidk… I personally do not know, I’ve never purchased nor used them…but I hear it’s not hard to do. It’s harder to stay clean than it is to use. The lure of the shortcut is quite powerful. (just ask Lance)

    • Beckygrey says:

      Kordell had a lot of razor bumps. Black men have curly hair that grows back into the skin. They generally have to use Magic Shave, razor less cream to avoid those bumps.
      But it amazes me how men know stats and faces of sports figures and no clue about anything else. lol

      • princesspindy says:

        I know my hubby is a walking encyclopedia of sports trivia. He said to me this weekend, “you remember in the Super Bowl last year when blah, blah, blah.” And I said, “No, I don’t remember any of this stuff, I watch it with you and enjoy it but I don’t commit it to memory. Now ask me which HW said what and where, I can quote you chapter and verse.” lol

        I didn’t know about the Magic Shave, I learn something new every day!

          You are right Princess. I have total recall of episode of some shows…I guess we each have our selective memory. lol

    Speaking of style and fashion, I sure hope Kyle isn’t planning on doing the buying for her new boutique. Based on what we see her wearing, especially the stripes and headband last night (and why werent we shown what she was wearing from the waist down?), her taste isn’t quite at the level of being able to stock an inventory that people in Beverly Hills would be interested in buying from. Actually, not just Beverly Hills…

    • iceNfire says:

      I truley hope she uses Fayekr as the buyer for the store, that will be hilarious!

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        As interesting as it would be to see the store come together, knowing Faye will be in those scene makes me sick to think about it.

        • iceNfire says:

          Ideally Kyle and Faye will be off the show. Kim will have taken Yolanda’s advice and friendship and improved her lot in life. Kim and Yo will be shown visiting the store where Kyle and Faye are growing old and miserable together……And I wonder why Braqvo blocks my comments hahahahaha

          • Beckygrey says:

            IceNfire, I think that I am blocked also. Kim can work at the store with them. I’ve watched Kim drunk and sober, I find her strange and awkward either way. She doesn’t have any friends or personality.

    • VV says:

      Bethenny gave her store a big plug when she tweeted last week that she spent a lot if money there.

      • Mene Seela says:

        Apparently after he became aware she was fake he continued to publicly discuss her as if she had been real. There is a lot of finger pointing about whether he was in on it to assist his chances to get the Heismann trophy.

          imo he was duped and ashamed to admit it. I have lots of facebook friends and most are fake accounts but as long as my “friends’ are funny I don’t really care who they are. I just don’t get too close to any of them, It’s just all fun and games to me. I’ve found that those who spend a lot of time playing facebook games are either elderly or disabled and just lonely souls. I have a torn tendon that keeps me inactive at times and facebook friends are 24/7. Oh yeah, lots of insomniacs on facebook too.

  39. VV says:

    Somebody refresh my mind, when the Russell (RIP) and Trayler had dinner with Momo and Kyle at the Armstrong’s home. Russel mentioned he was going to sue Lisa. Does anybody remember if her good friend Kyle and her wife Mauricia gave Lisa’s the heads up or defended her on that dinner?

    • Mene Seela says:

      Nope. That is the source of the first fracture in the friendship between the couples.

    • Jules says:

      No heads up given. No saying friends no sue. No wait up a moment let’s tell you what is being told my your wife. Perhaps if way back then someone had clue Russel in about his lying wife he would have had a chance to get out before she smeared his name.

    • VV says:

      I don’t recall either. Have to read old blogs as well just to make sure. They really didn’t give her the heads up. Somehow I recall Kyle saying she didn’t want to get in the middle but wasn’t sure if it was in reference to Russell’s wanting to sue Lisa.

      • Beckygrey says:

        Kyle DID NOT give Lisa a heads up. She didn’t want to get involved. Remember Kyle was not feeling Lisa at the time. Kyle was sticking with her buddy “Lips”.

      Okay one difference I see is that the article from the UK clearly states that the Las Vegas trip was before the Paris trip and even referenced the fact of Brandi learning to use a stripper pole, something we saw on WWHL and this article was written on July 13th so I think the Vegas trip took place June 23rd not July 23rd

    Based on the edit, Kyle and Mo did not warn Lisa about Russel’s intent to sue her.

    • cusi77 says:

      You are so right CAP! If I recall well, the day of the White Party when Kyle was with rolls in her head was still keeping from Lisa her conversation with Traylor about her thinking that Lisa knew some editor from a magazine that published that T & R were separating, and then in the dinner they had (R & T and Morris & Kyle, R said something abouttalking to a lawyer to sue Lisa). I am right? Kyle did not give Lisa the heads up!

  42. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Do you really think that Mauricio owes KEN an apology??? For what?? Ken was offended that Mauricio expressed his opinion to a “single mother” but he wasn’t offended that the same ‘single mother” told Mauricio to go f*ck himself, STFU and called him a mother f*cker. I don’t think Mauricio owes anyone an apology. I think Ken acted like an ass when Mauricio gave him that bottle-an egotistical ass. He is a househusband just like Mauricio-he angles for camera time like every other househusband. He cant wait to renew his wedding vows..ON REALITY TV!!! He is no better than the rest.
    Brandi and her whole MYOB crap couldn’t MYOB about Marissa and her husband last night-if that was Kyle saying the same thing-I cant imagine what people would be saying. But I know-its not Brandi’s fault. Marissa said those awful things about her husband so what was Brandi to do? Marissa opened herself up to it by saying those things…kinda like Brandi opened herself up by saying what she said….

    • iceNfire says:

      Mauri thinks he owes Ken an apology. That’s why he ran to Kyle when he felt that Lisa didn’t give him a proper Hello, he’s feeling guilty.

      Did you see what I posted upstream? 😮 : o : nospace little o

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Thank you iceNfire…I will never remember that but thanks for telling me how the hell I did it!!!

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        I don’t think he feels he owes an apology at all. I think that he just don’t like drama or bad blood- it’s not good for business and being a sales man, he likes to be a master negotiator. I also don’t think he is feeling guilty, I think he wanted conformation on if Lisa was really freezing him out or not (just like she is Adrienne)

    • VV says:

      Apparently Momo knew he did something wrong because he bought Ken a bottle of gin as a peace offering or apology. Guilty conscious? I think, YES!

      I don’t think Brandi just blabbed about M & D marriage out if the blue. It was a Talking Head. Bravo #2 tool to manipulate timelines. I am sure Brandi was answering a question from a producer to get the exact results they wanted. Marisa’s blog confirms it as she’s warning Brandi.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I think the bottle was more of a “hey I saw this and thought it would cool on your bar” kind of thing than an apology. We have a bar in our garage(I know-completly different from the bar in the mansion) and people are always giving us things that they think would be cool out there. If it were a peace offering and that is the way Ken acted-well I guess that makes him more of an ass than I thought.
        Brandi says whatever she wants…she doesn’t need any help from the famous Bravo edit. I think she said that about Marissa’s marriage because she knows at this point that talking shit is what keeps her on the show.

    • L.A. Chica says:

      I think WindyCityWondering explained it best somewhere above:

      “Mauricio was very dismissive to Lisa about her integrity and the tabloid story selling accusation made by Adrienne. Ken had to get Mauricio’s attention and ask that he listen to what Lisa was saying. Mauricio’s response was who cares. So I see a husband defending his wife’s integrity and asking a borish asshat to actually listen to what she was saying to him. In my world, Mauricio owes Ken and Lisa an apology and a bottle of gin isn’t an apology.”

    • BB says:

      I don’t remember hearing Ken or Lisa or anyone else on the show saying Mauricio owes them an apology. Doesn’t mean they have to go running up to him with open arms when he walks into the room. Obviously Mauricio must have felt he did something wrong or why else would he have brought the bottle of gin to Ken in the first place? It was kind of a random thing to do. After all, he did pretty much tell Lisa that Adrienne’s accusations of her selling stories to the gossip sites was not a big deal. That alone would have made me a little cool towards Mauricio.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Ken has a bar in the house-remember Brandi brought them the tequila? Its not so random to give liquor to someone who has a bar. Mauricio said “I think this would look cool on your bar”….l\my husband has a bar and we get stuff all the time…seriously-all the time-from our closes friends to our distant relatives…no kidding!!!

        • L.A. Chica says:

          Yeah but bringing someone a gift when you visit them in their home is one thing (and a polite gesture). Taking them a gift out of the blue and presenting it on neutral territory is another, and kind of odd unless your making a peace offering. 😉

        • BB says:

          OK. You and I are not going to agree on this. If they were visiting Ken and Lisa’s house, then yes, taking over something for his bar seems normal. Taking a bottle of gin to a art gallery opening has more of a purpose behind it than “this will look nice on your bar.” He was trying to make nice with Ken and Lisa and it didn’t work.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Ok BB…(I don’t like when we don’t agree)

          • trudie says:

            I could be wrong but I did not see Maury walk in with the bottle of gin. I kind of thought he saw a pretty bottle behind the bar, bought it, had the artist sign it (because it looked like there was writing on it) and presented it to Ken. So, it wasn’t like he planned it out. I thought he felt things were cool with the VanderP’s and tried to find a way to smooth things over.

      • Powell says:

        What if someone said to Mauricio I know you sell stories to the tabloids. Would he get upset? Yes because he doesn’t want his clients or potential clients thinking he is telling info about other clients. That’s Lisa’s same thinking. She doesn’t want customers & potential customers thinking she sells stories about other customers. I’m w/Brandi. Sometimes Mauricio needs to STFU.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          But Powell-Mauricio didn’t say that Lisa sold stories-all he said was :big deal”…I dont think that is a friendship ending remark. Lisa seems more upset now then she did when Adrienne said it.
          I think sometimes they ALL need to STFU!!

          • L.A. Chica says:

            I thought saying “big deal” was highly insulting. On national TV Adrienne slandered Lisa, questioned her integrity, called her a liar, and could have caused serious harm to her (and Ken’s) business. It was the nail in the coffin to whatever tenuous friendship Lisa and Adrienne, it having destroyed any last shred of goodwill between them. And Maury says “big deal”?!?!

            Again, it was insulting and dismissive of Lisa and what she went through with Adrienne. Is that the way to treat a friend?

            Ken was right — Mo wasn’t listening, he was just so intent on hearing himself talk. He was acting like a boorish asshat (thank you, WCW).

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        In the limo home, Ken explained he would normally never go against Mauricio but he did because Lisa is his wife and her integrity is important to both of them. Lisa said she would do the same for him. Neither of them said an apology was owed.
        I did say in my world, an apology to both of them was due because of the dismissive, churlish behavior of Mauricio towards Lisa. Even Kyle had to ask him to stop! Mauricio knows he was in the wrong and again, in my world a bottle of gin is not an apology! Mauricio said he thought the bottle would look great on Ken’s bar….WTH? And now that I think of it – the bottle should have been given to Lisa if that was Mauricio’s apology!!

    • Cartwheels says:

      I completely agree with you. If Kyle, Adrienne or Taylor would have said exactly the same in their talking heads about Marissa, under the same circunstances, every body would be crying murder, but I guess if Brandi says it then it is okay.
      I just hope I never hear Brandi say to anybody again “Mind your own business” because she obviously has a lot to say about every body else business that do not concern to her so if she dishes it, then she can certainly take it.

            Hey Jill and all the others on here… I love reading everyone’s opinions. Anyway, I grew up on Long Island in the 60’s. Lots of Brooklyn, Queens, etc. immigrant’s children moved here when adults, taking tastes and customs with them. It was YUM. Bakeries, pizza, delis, live seafood, ice cream shoppes, real mom&pop, not chains. They still have a facsimile of those places now, but nothing like it used to be. OK, getting OT but Heinz is one of those immigrant’s story and I refuse to eat a hamburger without it, only cause it tastes good. And I only like Hellmans mayo. Hello to everyone, you people are great company!

            • princesspindy says:

              My parents are from the East Coast (my Dad off the boat from Greece) and it was Hellmans on the East Coast and Best Foods on the West Coast…same companies, same products…. and the spices were McCormick on the East and Schillings on the West…..same products, same companies.. why do I remember this? lol!

    • TIT met John thru a common thread… he sits on boards for medical companies and some supplement company..the two of them also have a corporation together..they filed paperwork in VEGAS…. we yaked about this on CHIRPS old blog back last year…. I think ??? I have some of this in my RED FOLDER..hahahahahahaha….
      they wont last long together…. he has kids that wont like her…. lol

    • T-Rex says:

      Powell he is a lawyer in the same industry as Russells business and he knew all about Russells business as well as the business that was suing her, he is also into marketing. I believe ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterTwoTimingHusbandStealingLypsMcgee’s lawyer contacted him to help with background on her case, and between all of them they decided to “concoct” the farce that is the abuse allegations to try to get sympathy as to why she signed the contracts. So LyingLoserCheatingLawyer decided to get the book tour together with ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterTwoTimingHusbandStealingLypsMcgee to help her defense and help her raise money, and in the mean time I think that he was a lonely long time married, maybe bored guy who had this drunk ass, semi-attractive woman throwing herself at him and playing the victim, JMO. In addition he was divorced officially in November which is when she professed her LOVE for her LyingLoserCheatingLawyer

    • T-Rex says:

      Yeah right they were were doing the horizontal mamboe since December of 2011 and got caught in 02/12 folks found out February 2012 which is way the wife of LyingLoserCheatingLawyer was interviewed, They are idiots as to timelines and the internet!

    I haven’t finished reading the blog yet, (thank you NMD) but I swear,
    as I was reading the tweets from the “Bulldogs?” he cracked me up!
    It reminded me of the episode of “Sex in the City” where Carrie is obsessed
    with her “perfect” friend and that friend sends a Thank-You card saying
    “Thank you for the bla bla bla” there just perfect” Carrie calls a friend
    and says “she’s not perfect!! She’s stupid!!”

  47. WindyCityWondering says:

    Jenifer – great job on Vanderpump Rules blog! It was better than watching the actual show!!
    I think Bravo took advantage of Lisa because IMO her show is just a vehicle for wannabee actors/actresses looking for their “big break”. And it is very ironic to me that Sheana is the easiest one to watch.

  48. Cartwheels says:

    Rabble Rouser I agree with you 100% on this
    “I don’t believe this is about Brandi for one minute. IMO It’s because Maurico didn’t get on the take down Adrienne train that Lisa has been conductor of for a while now. Don’t get me wrong, I get and understand why Lisa wants to get back at A but they should resent other people who aren’t going to be part of the ‘freeze out’”.

    I still like Lisa but I think she is just as bad as the next when it comes to taking sides. Lisa expected everybody to follow suit with her against Adrienne and is not happy that some have decided to remain neutral. Brandi knows that feuding with Adrienne pleases Lisa. Lisa is far way more smarter than all the other RHBH put together so she knows how to operate is such a way that she never has to ask, she can never be blamed, she just hints and if you follow her lead, she rewards you with her friendship and if you don’t then she “freezes you out”.

    • VV says:

      Interesting because Mauricia didn’t have a problem with getting on the take down Lisa train conducted on Season 2.

      • L.A. Chica says:

        Yep.

      • Cartwheels says:

        what take down are you talking about ? the one where Lisa sells stories to the media. i don’t think she does but I do think she leaks stories out. Lisa wanted an apology and Adrienne apologized, Mauricio told her that basically it didn’t matter because it doesn’t, nobody is under the impression that Lisa sells any stories. If anything it serve the purpose to make Adriennne look crazy, so I still don’t get what huge sin was for Mauricio to point at the obvious.

        • VV says:

          From the beginning of S2 Taylor was accusing Lisa of selling stories and planting seeds, remember in the viewers mind about it. Remember, she had some prints from tabloids and such. Lisa was not invited to an event Traylor had. Then Tea party. I mean there are quite a few moments when they were all pretty much ganging up against Lisa or at least being accomplices. This continue pretty much throughout S2, until the Reunion when they all had to eat crow because IT WAS NOT TRUE.
          His behavior was rude. I think that ticked most off. The fact that his nose was so far up A&P behind also pretty much ticked many off including me.

          • Cartwheels says:

            How is this anything that Mauricio either participate or encouraged?

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            I’m not sure what any of that had to do with Mauricio.
            Nor can I say I know for a fact that Lisa has never sold a story although she has no greater motive than anyone else, so IMO they can be guilty of it..or hopefully innocent.

          • VV says:

            I guess the same train you are claiming Lisa wanted Mauricia to get in. You know the one you mentioned above the take down Adrienne train. Except that on S2 it was the take down Lisa train.

            You can’t say on the one hand Lisa encouraged Mauricia to get on one train and the dismiss that Charo didn’t have a train of her own to take Lisa down.

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              I’m not saying that Adrienne wasn’t out to get Lisa, I am saying at that time from what has been said only the ladies were involved in it. There didn’t appear to be any feuding between the guys with each other and the other ladies, other than Russell Armstrong.

              But clearly, Mauricio trying to hold Brandi accountable for the things she said about P&A and possibly their children doesn’t sit well with Lisa. I think it’s fair to wonder why that is.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        Was he on that train? Because the best of my recollection that was girls meeting.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Thanks Cartwheels

      • Cartwheels says:

        YVW
        I might be all alone of this one but I do think that this has more to do with the fact that Adrienne (by producers suggestion) dared to bring Brandi on the show when there were rumors that she was with Cedric, her enemy.
        I don’t think Lisa took that lightly, wasn’t after all Lisa’s tag line that BH was a game and she made the rules, well when Adrienne “broke” the rules, then there would be hell to pay, I think she saw that as the first break on their friendship. I do and will continue to praise Lisa for turning the tables on Bravo and making the best out of the situation by befriending Brandi instead of feuding with her, but I do think that Adrienne was the casualty of that whole situation though.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          Now that you say it…it totally reminds me of NeNe flipping the script with the her and Marlo Thomas ‘love triangle’ and befriending her. I am thinking the feud with Lisa and Adrienne runs much deeper than either one of them has lead us to beleive.

          • Cartwheels says:

            I agree.
            I loved when Nene flipped the tables on Bravo and befriended Marlo.
            To tell you the truth, every time one of the HW turns the tables on Bravo and refuses to follow their script, makes me happy.
            Bravo totally wanted Brandi to antagonize Lisa and Lisa turned around and made the best of it, I can’t fault her for that. I just wish Lisa and Adrienne would stop this stupid feud that is ruining the show. At least it is ruining for me.

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              I tend to agree with you about the Lisa and Adrienne feud. My suspicion says that whatever the real source of the feud is probably reveals the worst things about the both of them.

          • Beckygrey says:

            I think there is a difference here. Adrienne is very competitive and that she admits. There is a “class” war going on here. Adrienne is losing money, money that she never earned (given) while Lisa is gaining money( money she earned). Adrienne came on the show to gain exposure for her ventures (as did most of them, including Lisa) the Palms was barely featured. Remember Lisa wanted Jackpot (she brought it over to Kyle’s house) to kick Gigi butt. Every thing she did was to compete against Lisa. It’s a sad life.

    LeAnn and Brandi on “Entertainment tonight”

    • thedesigndiva2 says:

      Brandi will never find a man until she lets this thing between her and leann and eddie …GO….
      She needs to start controlling her outburts and story telling about her tryts…. GERALD BUTLER.. talking like she does scares men away… and I wish she would quit using the F WORD when she talks about her kids…. WOW…

    • iceNfire says:

      what network? i guess i don’t watch enuf tv…Loved that Kevin Bacon show last nite tho. He looks good! wonder if he had any work done…can we ask that about men? never seen it asked b4

  50. Sus says:

    This was a good episode. Yolanda basically telling ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterTwoTimingHusbandStealingLypsMcgee to hush was hysterical.

    Kim saying Brandi has a “history” of saying untrue things was rich too. Kim, you were fucked up on something that night. It might not have been meth but get a grip, we all know it and you do too so stop it.

    • iceNfire says:

      Kim repeated almost verbatim what Fayekr said about Brandi “randomly spewing” and Kim wasn’t even at that dinner when Fayekr said it.

    • Mene Seela says:

      huh?

      • Sus says:

        Kim is still mad at Brandi for saying she was doing Meth on Game Night last season. It wasn’t meth but she was on something

        • WindyCityWondering says:

          And oddly enough she can’t remember going all finger pointing slut pig on Brandi…..Kim scares me.

          • Sus says:

            The behavior of the Evil Sisters that night was really unbelievable. Brandi handled herself really well I thought. Much better than I would have. Those two bitches hid her crutches for crying out loud.

            Kim is very lucky that she was only accused of being on meth. Compared to her behavior, the meth comment was kitten like

  51. Sus says:

    Oh and Maurice being so offended by Brandi’s potty mouth – grow some balls to go with your dickhead.

  52. Sus says:

    And since I’ve been so charming here today, I have to add this:

    If what you wear (Kim) is so low cut and you have to fidget in order to stay in it, you should probably realize that it doesn’t fit properly and you need a tailor.

    I learned this from Richard Gere in Pretty Woman. He was constantly telling Julia to stop fidgeting.

  53. princesspindy says:

    I think that it was funny when Maurice went in to give Lisa a kiss and a hug and she backed up, made me laugh both times I watched that part.

    I’m watching that show “The Taste”
    It’s “The Voice” w/ food.
    Totally

  56. Mene Seela says:

    Personally I believe many cast members blurt things out to the media. They may no get paid for it but the information gets out anyway. Lisa owns 2 dining spots. It makes sense tome that she has frequent contact with tabloid writers. I am not implying she says improper things to them. Just that this is part and parcel of her world..
    I always considered Lisa and Brandi’s source about Adrienne’s Horrible Secret.
    Kyle obviously speaks frequently to TMZ.
    Taylor has a hotline to Radar.
    Brandi and LA call the media when they get their nails done.
    Morrie probably knows more dirt than everyone else considering that he has been inside every house in BH and Mo knows a lot about everyone’s financials.

    Adrienne and Paul are just as bad and sometimes much worse.

    IMHO they are all double dealers when it comes to gossip and backstabbing.

    Some are just slyer than others.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      They are probably all approached and some are more media saavy than others. And you are right, some use it to get back at whomever they are pissed at.

  57. BB says:

    NJ Bev. I’m watching The Taste too. It’s surprising they are picking more home cooks than professional chefs for their teams.

    • NJBev says:

      It’s a weird show. I don’t like how they are showing all
      the people going home- But overall, it seems like a
      good formula for a food show-
      Anthony has a thing for the “pretty” young things. imo
      I remember feeling that way during Top Chef finales.
      He loved Casey-
      What do you think??

    Believable or not: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mobileweb/2013/01/22/real-housewives-star-aviva-drescher-drugs_n_2527898.html

    The title/headline/whatever’s: Aviva Drescher, ‘Real Housewives’ Star, Urges Obama To Legalize All Drugs

    A quote/excerpt: The reality TV star told RadarOnline that doing so will “free today’s slaves who are shackled in the modern day plantations — aka jails.”
    And if you were wondering, no, the 42-year-old isn’t just talking about decriminalizing marijuana. She wants it all legal.

    My opinion: If she truely said this, all I can do is shake my head. This would be the reason some housewives should not talk or bring up certain subjects. How is being in jail for something you chose to do (albeit possibly addiction driven) ANYTHING like being ripped from your family and forced to do the bidding of others or die. Between the Native American and African American cultures having such unhealed and quite possibly unhealable wounds from this practice to compare the cultures to common criminals is so very ignorant IMO. Although, consider the source of Huff taking from Radar Online. But, there are direct quotes. Things that make you go hmmm

    • Pghemtchick says:

      Just another storyline since it seemed people wouldn’t film with her? Sad I guess either way. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  60. Pghemtchick says:

    This Bulldog guy is really a piece of work IMO. I don’t care what/when Mel was doing with him. Why come out now? QueenzofMedia I believe put it out there on twitter that Johnny the Greek & Penny outted him. Then the hatefest began. I know Queenz can be rough, but the homophobic comments made to them from Bulldog and followers, was nasty. Enter because Kim P. (Marco for this post from me) tweets to/follows Queenz Kim is behind Queenz actions even tho Kim hasn’t been on. So hiding behind not tagging Kim 4 hours ago Bulldog tweeted:

    @bulldog_nj: Kim p, you call those spirit fingers lol we both live In NJ send your husband and whoever else & I will show them spirit hands!! Anytime!
    (Me—a threat?—)
    @bulldog_nj: @JohnnyTheGrk I would think they would never wanna push me.kim called my best friend yest begging him to talk to me not to say anything lol

    Johnny replied: @JohnnyTheGrk: @bulldog_nj LMFAO. I got prank call threats & gave them my address, yea … no shows.

    Back to Bulldog replying to a tweeter about Kim’s hubby:
    @bulldog_nj: @Sunshine1335 he’s actually a very nice guy but if they want a problem I will give them more problems then carter had pills lol 😉

    @bulldog_nj: Phone records don’t lie!! I was Being nice by just saying Kim cause I still don’t really wanna go there.

    Later on another veiled threat to Kim:
    @bulldog_nj: My kids is asking what’s wrong? I say to them maybe we should have some guests for dinner 🙂 how’s about Italian!? http://t.co/CcfP1km4

    Finally Kim gets on Twitter 2 hours ago and after replying to a hate tweet with what are you talking about writes this:

    @kimpirrella: @bulldog_nj are you kidding me? What the hell are you talking about! Bryan tag me if you have something to say yo me and Joey P. better yet
    @kimpirrella: @bulldog_nj get the hell off twitter and call me. I think you must be losing your freakin mind. What happened to you!

          that out of the way, I would give that
          issue w/ Mauricia a second thought-

          • Nancy says:

            Hi Bev,
            I’m not saying that “Mauricia” does I’m just saying that there are a lot of successful

            My bff that lives in NJ STILL has a hole in her roof! All the workers are still busy.
            How is it at your end?

            • NJBev says:

              How does she still have a hole in her roof?
              Most contractors are either on a job OR
              are sitting around waiting “for the checks”
              to come in.(I don’t mean the contractors are just
              sitting around, their hands are tied while they wait
              for their clients to settle w/ ins.)
              Honestly, Nancy, It is surprising
              how many people are waiting for the $$
              from either the Gov’t or insurance. Unless you
              could pay the cash for the clean up
              or fix, many people are just forced
              to wait.
              Restoration is not cheap. But she should have
              her roof repaired by now, unless she is waiting
              on insurance. Or she has one particular roofer
              she is just waiting for, but that does not sound
              reasonable……………….

              • Nancy says:

                I could be wrong but I’m sure she told me that the insurance co has already paid
                and she’s waiting until the roofer has time to fix it. I talk almost every day so I will
                ask her again tomorrow. They are paying for all the mold and the carpets to be cleaned.
                They just bought this home and fixed it up and now they are back to square one.

  74. kit9 says:

    Finally got to watching the episode and Brandi told a big fat lie. We know Brandi has not reached out to Adrienne. That subject was thoroughly covered at the Faye dinner party and she did completely say two different things at this one. Notice that when Mauricio points out this contradiction that she doesn’t refute it. And, that’s when she goes all screechy on him-when she got caught lying. And, stop saying Ad did ALL these horrible things to her. This time it’s a ‘plethora’. And, as always, she doesn’t say what those things are. The only thing she’s actually said Ad did was the phone call. Brandi, looks FOS here. She’s got nothing but that phone call and it’s not enough to justify her attack on Adrienne and she knows it.

    And, M was not attacking her for god’s sake. In fact, Mauricio was the only one who was actually trying to help Brandi. His anger and frustration was from dealing with Ken who was arguing the completely idiotic point that Brandi didn’t mean her comment in a bad way. Rofl! Hmm, I recall Brandi said it in the middle of an Adrienne hating tirade, not in passing. And Mauricio won that fight when Brandi herself contradicted Ken. Oops. If Ken actually cared about Brandi, he’d be telling her what Mauricio was telling her. Mauricio was giving Brandi excellent advice-namely, suck it up and apologize and save yourself a lot of $ and trouble. Instead, Ken was making excuses for her not contacting Ad.

    Mauricio also said she didn’t deserve to be sued. So, he was agreeing with Ken and Brandi on that point. And, if Brandi doesn’t like everyone chiming in on it-don’t effing bring it up in front of everyone. I generally like Ken but his comments were so insulting and condescending to women. Brandi doesn’t have a man to protect her? Wtf!? Ken, women aren’t children. She’s a grown woman, she doesn’t need protecting. And, she’s responsible for what comes out of her mouth. And, gee, maybe Brandi wouldn’t be so broke if she got off her ass and actually got a job! Oh, and Lisa, stop comparing being accused of selling stories to Radar with a very personal attack involving someone’s family and kids. The latter is worse. Much worse. Which is what Mauricio meant when he said it was no big deal-about what Ad said about Lisa. It’s easy to miss in the cross talk but he did clarify that. But, I did agree with Brandi on one point-Marisa treats her husband like crap! lol

    • L.A. Chica says:

      Have you considered switching to decaf? 😉

      Sorry, just teasing ya.

      But how do you know it’s a lie? Maybe Brandi tried to call Adrienne after Kyle’s disastrous dinner party, it’s not like there wasn’t any time between the two dinners.

      • PJ says:

        I believe that Brandi did try to call Adrienne. This show isn’t filmed in one day, just because she hadn’t called at the time of the dinner party at Kyle’s house does not mean she hadn’t called by the time of the Moroccan dinner. She actually did say to Mo that she called twice. I think the fact that Mo wasn’t listening frustrated her.
