Jason Hoppy Releases his Divorce demands and Other Gossip by NoMoreDrama
Jason Hoppy Releases His Divorce Demands. Bethenny Frankel and Jason Hoppy have both put their divorce demands on the table, according to TMZ.
Primary custody of Bryn – check
Child support (goes with custody I suppose) – check
Medical and dental covered (by the other one) – check
Beneficiary to life insurance (in addition to having Bryn as beneficiary) – check
Exclusive use and occupancy of the marital residence – check
In short, Jason is asking for everything Bethenny asked for – in addition to having his legal costs covered.
I don’t blame him. I think it sucks that she asked for primary custody and that set the stage for this battle. What do you think?
LeAnn Strikes Back. Leann Rimes was featured in an article about her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel live on Tuesday, one day after Brandi Glanville was on Watch What Happens Live and called Leann insane. Leann fired back. In talking about Brandi’s show (RHOBH) Leann – who claims not to watch the show said – : “I do know what’s going on [the show] because I have to deal with my publicist every Monday.” Huh? Has she been mentioned on the show recently???
And then about Brandi’s latest hit “But then, you know, you just kinda get fed up with people lying about you and you’re like…words, here.” Well said Leann – you’re like, like, help me find some words please.
Actually, I’m getting pretty tired of both of them but since Brandi has a book to sell I get what she’s doing. Leann, I’m like I like have no like words. LeAnn’s new look did cracked me up though.
And then there’s Brandi’s on-screen feud with Adrienne Maloof, that put her on the cover of the magazine this week. The text on the cover says: “Brandi Tried To Destroy My Family.” “The truth behind the explosive fight that TV couldn’t show! And why Brandi used Adrienne’s surrogacy secret against her.” (According to this article in the DailyMail – neither lady was interviewed for the article – all the content was from an unnamed source).
Nevertheless, Brandi responded by talking to the Huffington Post, saying: “I’ve never tried to ruin anyone’s family. I was simply protecting my own.” “I think Adrienne did a nice job of ruining her own family when she accused her husband of child abuse. She did this, not me.” Ouch. But true. I’m still scratching my head about why Adrienne was so worried about keeping this secret. I’m still convinced the secret also had to do with their marriage being on the rocks – which isn’t much of a secret now that Paul and Adrienne are divorced and she’s got a new boy toy.
Speaking of that – Adrienne Maloof seems to be trying to draw attention away from the “secret” by giving people something else to gossip about. She’s gone public with her relationship with Rod Stewart’s son (although she denies that he has moved into her home). Paul Nassif has even chimed in on the relationship – wishing her well. My guess is he’s just happy she’s leaving him alone.
Our day wouldn’t be complete without checking in with our latest NJ housewife entertainment, Melissa Gorga’s ex-boyfriend Bulldog and his amusing tweets.
First Melissa tweeted this: “I know you’re gonna try & bring me, bring meee down, But I’m a fighter I’m a tiger I can figure it out💋” (Is that from her song?)
Bulldog tweeted (around that time): ““GAME ON!!” then “BIG MISTAKE!!!”
(It sure looks like he’s looking for something to react to – unless there is a lot more going on behind the scenes than the twitter line shows).
Then later were a string of tweets – I’m just bringing over some since I’m not sure what he’s talking about most of the time.
“I didn’t make your bed and now your gonna have to lie in it.. Lol “lie” in it haha 😜”
You can bring a 1000 knifes but it won’t help you in a gun fight!! Chose your battles wisely.
“You beat them with heart not muscle”
“You attacked my character I stayed quiet then my brain surgery. That was where the line was crossed now u challenge me!? Game on! Ya hamster”
“they can have all the time they want to scramble the lies. Like I said I am 10 steps ahead! I’m just giving them more rope ;)”
“Calm before the storm.. BOOM ⚡🔥”
“I am so much smarter then they think lol I love it!!!” 👼👺 (I’m not sure about that).
Then this morning:
“I bet I know someone who’s just as scared as this poor kid lol” With a photo of a kid with a scared face)
“Gdmorn everyone! Jeez I don’t know what’s worse watching her last Video on twitter or reruns of Jerry springer idk both fake lol”
“You should come up with different moves its been the same song & dance as long as I know you..”
“I just heard that song “don’t start no shit won’t be no shit” to bad they didn’t hear it first..”
“I am going to becoming out with a song too.. Stay tuned.. 😉 it’s gonna be titled ” baby it gets cold outside..” (be coming?)
“Ok I had enough fun for this morning gotta run. Training today.. I hope it’s not to cold for yas ;)” (Game on – fun – I sense a trend)
“K let’s remember what’s important in live 1st. everyone enjoy your day & we’ll play again later 😉 god bless”
That’s all for this morning – – –
Top Chef Seattle Recap by SugarMagnolia
We begin this episode in the condo. Josie is feeling guilty for Kristen’s loss. It’s about time she has some remorse. Sheldon is feeling confident/worried about his win.
Guest judge is Los Angelas sushi expert Katsuya Uechi. The challenge today is to create a sushi dish. I love sushi! I have had 3 babies and when I was pregnant, I did not miss alcohol, coffee, or any other forbidden foods. I missed sushi! (The mercury content is not safe for baby, for those who are not up on the baby growing rules). It was the first meal I ate as soon as baby 1,2, and 3 popped out. Well, they didn’t just pop out, but that’s a whole other blog. I even argued with my OB over it. I asked if i could eat Unagi and he said NO! “But it’s seared, pretty pretty please?” Nope, still too much mercury. But, I digress, back to our Quickfire. No immunity but the winner gets $5k
- Stefan–yellowtail with grilled shitake and raw lobster with seaweed and unagi
- Josie–halibut with yuzu and bacon aioli
- Lizzie–lobster, micro greens and pickled ginger with Yuzu-Sake broth
- Brooke–octopus with yuzu and grated wasabi
- Stash–tempura bacon, omelette, salmon bellly and yuzu kosho aioli
- Sheldon–hamachi sashimi with fresh ponzu, mitsuba and lemon charcoal
On the bottom–Lizzie, tempura was chewy. Stash–his breakfast for sushi concept was not well received. His bacon was greasy. (Mr. Pork lover cannot actually cook pork. It is his fatal flaw).
Top–Brooke and Stefan. Who is the winner? Stefan! Finally! After 27 challenges he won!
David Chang is the guest judge. Tom is there as well. Fried chicken is the challenge. There will be a whole lot of chefs judging them, most of whom are pretty much experts at getting a good scald on a chicken. Tom says, this is easy–make it crispy and delicious. The winner will receive a years supply of Turlatto wines. Stefan says that 365 bottles will last him a few months. Stefan–pick up an iced tea occasionally!
Chefs cooking. Stefan is such a perv, debating on whether he likes breasts or thighs more–depends on the size of the chicken. Gross-shocking that he is still single. Stash wants to replicate his Grandfather’s chicken. He is brining it from the inside with a flavor injector. Hmn….this should be interesting. Josie, sorry but I just have to channel the teacher from Charlie Brown–mwah mwah mwah. Mwah mwah mwah. I have no interest in listening to this woman speak any longer. She should’ve gone home last week. I will say that she didn’t use chorizo for the second time out of this season. Brooke is feeling challenged because she knows that something so simple can be the hardest to execute. She gets this game, which is probably why she’s won so many challenges.
Toyoto Highlanders–thanks Bravo! No show without commercial-in-episode.
While the chefs are busy cooking, the judges are having wine, They discuss their favorite parts and Tom gets a good laugh when he suggests that Wolfgang should open a new restaurant called “Wolfgang Clucks”. Chef’s are sweating while judges are laughing. Of course Josie can’t get her fryer working–mwah mwah mwah.
Judges–David Chang, Vinny Botolo, Jon Shook, Michelle Bernstein, Emeril, Wolfgang Puck, and of course, our head judge Tom Coliicchio. Josie is sweating it because Michelle sent her ass home on her last season. Puh-leeze Michelle, help the viewers out and send her packing again.
Sheldon-Umamai drusticks and thighs with usukuchi and grapeseed oil
Lizzie–chicken with coriander, black pepper and brown sugar rub with peach and cabbage slaw
Josie–chicken with black garlic, cayenne, thyme, and hot sauce with daikon salad (go home please)
There must have been a long production break here because the judges are jovial and seem to have lots of wine. Michelle won’t even eat Josie’s. Sheldon comes out on top.
Stefan–chicken cordon bleu with garlic aioli and lemon
Stash–smoked fried chicken with hot sauce and bleu cheese
Brooke–Dukkah crusted chicken breast with wilted escarole and tomato salad –Brooke actually interviewed two of the judges and she didn’t hire them. She’s having a bad day….and they didn’t like her chicken.
I’m telling you, the judges are tipsy, they are just laughing too much, and there seems to be more wine glasses clinking than forks hitting plates. The cheftestants have to wait until tomorrow for Judges Table.
Stash, Sheldon, and Lizzie are up first. Whew, they are the favorites! They each get kudo’s for originality and execution. Stash is the winner! Apparently he can’t cook pork, but he can cook chicken. And he will have 365 bottles of wine to drink while he does so.
Brooke, Stefan, and Josie are called up next. Brooke shouldn’t have de-boned hers. Josie had a pool of grease on her banana leaf. Of course Josie defends her dish saying everyone else said it was so good. Tom said, well, all of us sitting here did not like it so STFU. Stefan–why cordon bleu? Cause I’m from Europe and we don’t have KFC. Tom calls it banquet food. Ouch!
PYKAG Josie. Thank you thank you thank you Judges! Now she’s off to get her revenge from Kristen. My money is on Kristen.
Also, a new voting opportunity–there is one last chance to save our favorite chefs! I vote CJ! text “CJ’ to 27286.
See you next week foodies!
