Gossip Roundup by NoMoreDrama – Ronnie Negus Cyberbulllied / Teresa May Testify in Juicy’s Trial / Brandi doing Oscar Red-Carpet / Eddie Cibrian’s Instagram Account a Hoax / Joey Gorga Topless, Kim Zolciak Wigless and Jill Zarin Shameless
Ronnie Negus of Real Housewives of Vancouver is Cyberbullied – and Calls in the Mounties! Just kidding. She called in the Vancouver Police. The Proper Authorities are now Watching her Account. I wonder what the laws are up in Canada and if they’ll be able to stop some of the twitter nonsense. Here are her tweets:
Joe Giudice’s up for Trial soon, and Teresa may Testify. Joe Giudice has/had a suspended licence due to a DUI. We heard about the DUI on the show. Several years ago he was at dinner with Teresa, Jacqueline, and Chris. He came home by himself, and somehow ran into a tree. He was so shaken he went to someone’s house and downed shots, so when the cops came his blood alcohol level was above the legal limit. Joe made lemonade into lemons. June 2010 (five months later) he allegedly obtained a driver’s license using younger bother Pete’s ID. March 2011 he was pulled over and when they ran the license, they noticed the discrepancy. This case has been delayed and delayed several times as the plea offers always involve several year’s of jail time. Joe’s layer spoke to RadarOnline, and told them that: “Teresa could be a witness,” Miles Feinstein exclusively tells Radar. “But everything she would say would be positive for Joe.” and “We are going to trial. These charges and the threat of state prison are ridiculous for this event. I’ve said it all along, but it is because of Joe’s celebrity status that this hasn’t been resolved already.”
Remember when We all were Dying to See Kim Zolciak’s Natural Hair? She’s been tweeting photos of herself lately “au naturel” – well with makeup and her hair done, but wigless.
Eddie Cibrian’s Instagram Account was a Hoax: Eddie Cibrian tells Gossip Cop exclusively, “It appears that someone created an unauthorized and fake Instagram account under my name and made false posts as well. Everyone who knows me knows I do not or have ever had an Instagram account.”
Fake accounts are a problem for many celebrities. I really noticed this reading the Dance Moms tumblr account. Many people feel it is funny to open a fake account and put out false information. Eddie is probably telling the truth, and my guess is LeAnn wasn’t behind it either. She tweeted the urinal photo in 2011. Here’s an article about it. But she still sat in a urinal!
Brandi Glanville just tweeted this: “Ummmm so ABC is trusting me to do some Oscar red carpet coverage… What do I wear?? Help!”
Joey Gorga has just finished a photo shoot for Sizzle Tan’s Billboard. The photo’s are exclusive and I don’t want to get into trouble by bringing them here – so you’ll have to click this link to see them. The actual billboard went up in Totowa, NJ, Thursday. Please don’t be distracted by the neked Joey Gorga if you live in Totowa NJ.
And Last and Least, Jill Zarin gave me a laugh with this response to a Patti Stranger tweet:
Real Housewives of Vancouver Season Two Episode One by NoMoreDrama
They are back for a second season. Three returning housewives with a lot of baggage, and three new housewives.
- Ronnie: Life is a journey, but it’s just more fun on a private jet.
- Amanda: I put my demons behind me, but I’m still no angel
- Robin: I may be a country girl, but I’ve got the city in the palm of my hands.
- Mary: Life in the spotlight can be tough when you don’t know who to trust.
- Ioulia: Vancouver’s beauty is one of a kind, just like me.
- Jody: Nothing tastes as sweet as success and I’ve got the perfect recipe for it.
We start with a voice over from Ronnie talking about how her life was changed after her daughter Remy almost died. She stopped drinking four months ago. It segues to Ronnie talking to her sons about planning a party to celebrate Remy’s life. She’s planning on inviting all the people that helped save Remy’s life the night when she choked on a piece of steak and didn’t breath for 22 minutes. One son asks if Jody will be invited and says he’s worried about being judged about what he’s wearing. And then they joke about hiding the cat so Jody doesn’t skin it, and someone calls her Cruela de Ville. Heh.
Jody voices over how close she is with daughter Mia. They eat together and sleep together. Then they segue into Jody and Mia talking about Mia’s nose job. Jody is resentful because Mia used to look like her. Mia thinks she looks great. Jody talks about being invited to the dinner, and how Jody has forgiven Ronnie for being mean to her last year (at the last dinner). Mia tells Jody she’d like her to meet her friend Amanda – because they have a lot in common and Amanda wants some business advice. They are both single moms. Jody agrees. Of course she does because someone has to introduce the new girl.
Mary and Ronnie meet for lunch and we find out they haven’t seen each other since the reunion. Mary asks how Remy is doing. Ronnie asks Mary to come to her barbeque. Mary is nervous, because she knows Jody will be going, but wants to go to see Remy. Ronnie says she really wants her to go. They then talk about Ronnie saying that Mary had been married twice during the reunion show – something Mary denied. Ronnie apologizes and says she wouldn’t have said it if she had known that Mary’s kids didn’t know. (This is the trouble about real friends being on reality shows together – they know too much about each other and know how to hit where it will hurt.) Mary says that when you get a marriage annulled it’s like it never happened. They agree to not out each other’s secrets.
Mary meets with the new girl Ioulia who is an art consultant. Ulia shows up in a Porshe. They look at some art. It’s not Mary’s cup of tea but she like Ioulia. Ioulia drives very fast.
Ronnie and Remy go horseback riding as part of Remy’s therapy. Oh – it’s an excuse to meet Robin, who is also riding a horse. Robin was a barrel racer from Texas. Right away Robin tells a story about delivering twins at 26 weeks and losing one. Ronnie shares that Remy was born at 26 weeks, and they bond. Remy invites Robin to her party.
Robin drives a hummer. She’s 47, from Texas, and recently separated. She rides her horse every day. Her horse is worth $130,000 – $200,000. She compares that to designer clothes, and explains that her ex-supports her financially. She explains that she’s confrontational, and Vancouver women follow the rules but she likes to intentionally break them.
Back to Jody meeting Mia’s friend Amanda at the Tea House (I’ve been there) in Stanley Park. Amanda is late and apologizes. Jody pretends she has something better to do. Amanda explains that she’s making kombucha tea (a fermented sweet tea). Amanda tries to explain the health benefits but has no idea what she’s talking about. Amanda explains that she doesn’t drink, but the tea makes her feel strange. Then she goes on to tell Jody that she struggles with her sobriety. Amanda seems really uncomfortable on camera. The whole scene seems very fake. Jody fake invites Amanda to the party, and tells her she supports her and can see she’s a good person. Okay then.
Amanda is now working out. She explains that she’s obsessed with her weight and wants to look starving. She’s an alcoholic who has been sober for 2 years and is addicted to sex. She’s also violent if provoked. She has three kids and is divorced, but is domestically disabled, which means she feeds her kids popcorn for dinner.
Mary is getting ready for the barbeque, and gets help from her housekeeper Meri. I have to wonder why Mary can’t pick out her own clothes.
Ioulia is from Russia and married to a venture capitalist. She explains that she’s not a mail order bride because she’s been married for 12 years. Her husband explains that she handles conflict by punching him. She seems to have a lot of trouble picking out a dress to wear to the barbeque (Mary has been told to invite her) and her husband tells her to calm down.
Ioulia and Mary take a limo together to the party and Mary is just glad to have a friend, even if they just met filming the last scene. Jody and Amanda share a limo and trash talk Mary. Mary trash talks Jody to Ioulia. Ioulia voices over that she’ll judge people for herself. I think Mary and Jody give each other too much air.
Mary arrives and gives Remy a huge hug. Now they meet Robin. Mary likes her instantly, but I’m not sure about Ioulia. She seems a little offended by something Robin said about her accent. Jody shows up with her little daughter Hannah and tells Hannah to be polite to everyone. Mary says hi to Hannah but Hannah has no idea who she is. Jody introduces Amanda to Remy but ignores Mary. Mary introduces herself, and then forces Jody to acknowledge her by saying hi. Now they all stand around trying to get to know each other. Uh oh, Amanda admits she’s friends with Mia. Robin likes Jody. Robin is absolutely rude. Somehow they start talking about Ronnie’s drinking problem, and how she just decided to quit. Robin say it’s weak to be an alcoholic, and people should just be strong and stop drinking. Amanda is pissed and even Jody is uncomfortable.
Ronnie gives a speech, and explains that she speaks from the heart. She probably should prepare next time. The party is about thanking the people that saved Remy’s life, and Remy gives a very sweet speech to thank everyone. Even Jody cried. Mary says something sweet to Remy. Remy begs her to sing and when Mary says no Remy plays the godmother card. Mary gives in and sings her song directly to Remy (you’re my hero). It was really cute (except for Jody rolling her eyes).
They end the first episode laughing and hugging. And the episode fades with Ronnie saying, “I have a feeling this year we’re all going to get along just fine.”
Previews for the rest of the season show that Ronnie may have been overly optimistic. Everyone is yelling at everyone. I have a feeling I’ll really miss Reiko and Christina. It’s obviously too early to tell, but with first impressions I think I may like Ioulia. Robin looks like she’s going to be abrasive, and Amanda just seems off so far.
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
Cast Blogs by Stars99
Note: You may want to participate in a drinking game for this particular blog… every time you read the words, “The Palms”… take a drink of your favorite beverage.
Adrienne, the Martyr, begins her blog by hocking her new handbag line – the “Perverse Purse”… you know the one with her name plastered all over it? She is also eating up all the attention she’s getting when the other housewives gather together and she’s not even around, calling herself “the main topic of conversation.” Gag.
“It’s interesting that Yolanda criticizes me for not being there in person for these gatherings. Yet, she is clearly not a fan of catty dinner conversation either. We actually have very similar reactions to drama and how we deal: we leave the table or choose not to participate in the event.”
When did Yo criticize you for not being there? She merely said that you “chose” not to be there… what’s wrong with that? Is that not the truth? Oh wait, that’s right… You have such a loose relationship with the truth that you don’t even know how to spell it anymore. Your last sentence actually proves Yo’s case when you say that you “choose not to participate in the event.” The Martyr continues on to explain why she doesn’t go to “these dinner parties” and as usual, she thanks the people on her team for having her back. By the way, Adrienne, this wasn’t a dinner party, it was a trip to Las Vegas. No, they didn’t stay at your beloved “The Palms” and you didn’t go because you’ve threatened to sue Brandi and your lawyers have told you that you couldn’t have any further communication with her until that issue is settled. The only reason your name came up at all, is because Camille, wearing the personality we all know and love from Season 1 and posing as a dutiful Bravo employee, brought up your name knowing it would create drama. I think Camille has been so boring this year that she got the memo that threatened her to bring some drama or else she’d be kicked to the curb next season.
Brandi starts her blog talking about the pole dancing and how most of the women seemed to have fun except for Marisa. Brandi says she thinks that Marisa has “lost track of her sexuality.” I think that was such a rude thing to say and not necessarily true at all. Just because someone is not comfortable pole dancing does not mean they are not sensual. It seems like Brandi is making jabs at Marisa more and more often.
“At dinner we all expressed concern for Kim. We all want what’s best for her. I invited these women to Vegas and I am glad they all came to support me, so why Camille brought up missing Adrienne at my dinner, knowing full well of our legal issues I will never understand. Yes, we had fun in the past with Adrienne and now I’m having fun with her lawyers — so clearly it’s not the best dinner conversation.”
Oh Brandi, Camille brought up Adrienne because she knew that would set you off. You and Lisa played right into her hand. While you guys were in Vegas, I hoped that you would have taken a field trip to “The Palms” to actually see the 2% that the Maloofs still own. I wonder what part it is? I’m thinking it’s the men’s bathroom on the 4th floor, 3rdurinal from the left. Your ex-husband recently took a picture of his darling new wife perched on said urinal. It brought a tear to my eye.
“Jennifer explained why I was so nervous about the reunion. I was nervous because I was asked to meet up with Adrienne to talk about going after Lisa and for no other reason. Why else would I be nervous? The ONLY reason I called Camille was to get her take on what was about to happen. Camille said to me I know they are going after Lisa but I have no issues with Lisa and you shouldn’t worry about it “just be yourself.” That was the extent of it. Then at dinner, Camille calls me a liar and just minutes later confirms I was telling the truth but she didn’t like being put on the spot. That wasn’t cool to me, I have always been lovely and kind to Camille, so I was upset when she called me a liar. Well Camille and I have now moved past it all. We are not as close as we once were, but are fine.”
Yeah, Camille’s whole melodramatic “I can handle it – but I will not stand for it” moment seemed awfully rehearsed to me. She was even nice enough to do a second take on it – saying almost the exact same thing only seconds later in case we missed it the first time. After this episode, I really do think that Camille was very involved in the whole ganging up on Lisa strategy before last year’s reunion – more than just knowing that it was going to happen. Otherwise, it would have just been an innocent phone call from Brandi, the newbie, asking for her opinion on how she should handle the upcoming reunion. The whole “you put me on the spot” rationalization for lying was just wonky
“Camille brought up that Adrienne was upset that Pandora didn’t choose to do her bachelorette party at the Palms, which is ridiculous because it’s Pandora’s choice and no one elses. So I say why was Adrienne upset because she doesn’t own but two percent of the Palms. A bitchy, but true statement. I probably wouldn’t have said it had Pandora’s bachelorette party not been brought up and Adrienne not been threatening me with a lawsuit.”
I honestly can’t believe we’re still talking about this, but, okay… If this was a normal world, and not a “real housewives” world, Adrienne’s complaint that Pandora didn’t have her bachelorette party at her hotel would have been more about the fact that she had the means to make her friend’s daughter’s event really amazing and memorable. However, I think the only reason Adrienne’s family were okay with her being on this lil reality show in the first place – was because she had been given marching orders to bring as much publicity to the failing Maloof business ventures as possible. That’s why they took the trip to the Sacramento Kings basketball game and the trip to Vegas in Season 1. It was probably pretty embarrassing for Adrienne to have to try to explain to her brothers why her fellow caste mate chose not to use “The Palms” for her event, especially because it was televised. That’s why Adrienne had to quickly plan her own event so “The Palms” could be featured and so that she wouldn’t be in so much trouble with her family.
“Why Camille is upset at Lisa and yelling at Yolanda, I still don’t understand. Lisa has always been forthcoming about having a partner in her restaurant SUR and being 51 percent owner. In fact I think there is a show about it called Vanderpump Rules.”
Yeah, Brandi, I think your 2% comment was made under the guise of wondering why it still matters so much to Adrienne why her hotel wasn’t used since her family only owns 2% of it anyway… yet Camille’s accusation that Lisa is pretending to own Sur outright is ridiculous. Lisa has talked about her partner and we’ve seen her talking to her partner in previous episodes. I honestly didn’t know the percentage each held in the restaurant – it really wasn’t too important to me. Then when Camille really demeaned Lisa’s involvement as being just “a figurehead” was really insulting. Yes, she isn’t there all the time running the place, but neither is her partner.
“Being in Vegas with the girls was fun. Watching all the girls do their thing on the pole had me laughing. I love when we are all getting along and having fun like that. I wish we could be like this all the time.”
Yeah, me too, but Bravo won’t let it be that way.
“Getting the call from Kim about getting her nose done threw me off, to say the least. She has mentioned it a number of times but never seemed serious. A lot of things were going through my mind at the moment — none of which I wanted to share with anyone in the car. I had my concerns, but I also know how important my sister’s sobriety is to her. I wanted to have a conversation with Kim in private.”
I have to say, Kyle – this one of the very few times this season that I liked how you handled a situation. You didn’t throw Kim under the bus… you gave her the benefit of the doubt… and you kept your mouth shut on camera about your feelings or apprehensions. Wow, it’s almost like you’re sisters or something.
“Yolanda later said in her interview that she doesn’t know why I was making light of Kim getting her nose done. Yolanda doesn’t know what I was thinking and it seems she was making light of it herself in the limo. Clearly she has an issue with me.”
You’re right that Yo didn’t know what you were thinking – but we’re all so used to you making flippant derogatory comments about your sister. In the past, you have been really vocal about your sister but it looks like perhaps you’re trying to change how you talk about her, at least on camera. Most of us have issues with you, Kyle. You’ve given us plenty of reason.
“After we switched gears in our conversation, it then turned to Adrienne. When Camille said she couldn’t help but think of her when we were in Vegas, I echoed her sentiments. What a mistake! Especially with a group of people who are either angry with Adrienne or who don’t even know her.”
I cannot believe that you and Camille have been to Vegas with Adrienne so much that you miss her when she’s not there. Perhaps you miss the amenities she brings to the table, but really, do you miss Adrienne and her beige personality? And to pine about it – at this particular dinner? Well, it’s just insulting to us viewers because we know you guys were just stirring the pot – trying to create drama. But then again, that’s your job, I guess.
“When Brandi made the comment that Adrienne now only owns 2 percent of The Palms, I thought “Here she goes again.” Saying something to hurt or embarrass someone. I know they take great pride in The Palms and this was obviously a sore subject.”
It’s actually worse than that, Kyle – Adrienne’s family only owns 2% of “The Palms”… not sure what fractional proportionality of that 2% is actually Adrienne’s. That’s the point Brandi was trying to make – she’s confused at why the whole bachelorette fiasco still bothers Adrienne so much when she barely owns any part of “The Palms.”
“I actually do like Brandi. I just don’t always agree with her actions. Just because something is “true” doesn’t mean we should say it. Of course if two people are fighting to the degree Adrienne and Brandi have, most “rules” go out the window.”
Yep, I like Brandi too, and I don’t always agree with her actions. Adrienne has taken the fight to her lawyers, and so she has created a whole new set of rules to follow.
“Then there goes Yolanda again. Saying that “Kyle loves the drama”. . .Weren’t we ALL discussing this issue? It was a heated conversation between all the women at the table about a very sensitive topic. Only Marisa and Jennifer stayed quiet because they don’t really know Adrienne like the rest of us.”
Well Kyle, ummm… you do love the drama. I can see you salivate over it. Your eyes get all glazed over and stuff.
“Then Lisa tells Brandi to tell us what she had told her on the phone. AGAIN about the Reunion! I have heard many different versions of this now. Sometimes my name is involved, sometimes it’s not. I want to say for the record, I was NEVER called by ANYONE about any meeting regarding Lisa. Never. Lisa and I were closer than the others at the time. So, if that meeting DID take place, it makes sense why I wasn’t called.”
Yeah, you’re right – it DID seem like you and Lisa were close at that time. It’s WHY Lisa is still so cranky at you for remaining silent through Adrienne’s attack of unfounded accusations. Why don’t you get that? It’s not all that hard to figure out, really. You sometimes act like a snake. Embrace it or shed your skin!
“Just when I thought things couldn’t get worse, Camille makes the comment to Lisa about owning SUR. THEN the whole table goes quiet. I know NOTHING about Lisa’s businesses and I had never heard this before. Lisa immediately said that she owns 51 percent of SUR. I did not think that Lisa needed defending. She explained immediately! Lisa later told me that she was upset I didn’t defend her. Why wasn’t she upset with Brandi for not defending her? They’re very close friends. Maybe Brandi also didn’t think Lisa needed defending. It’s also obvious Lisa is still angry with me, so she is hyper sensitive to anything I may do or NOT do.”
I call B-O-L-O-G-N-A on the part that you didn’t know about Lisa’s businesses. How could the viewers possibly know about her partner and you didn’t? Really? I just can’t believe that. I think Lisa is upset over the pattern you have of not defending her in any way – not just this particular instance. Although, I’m sure you know full well that Lisa is not just a figurehead at her restaurants… yet you remained silent on that issue when Camille brought it up. And, by the way, Brandi was absolutely defending Lisa when she spoke about the 2% ownership of “The Palms.”
“I can’t stand that everyone seems so divided lately. It seems we are expected to pick a side. I wish Adrienne were here to speak for herself. It has put everyone who has defended her in her absence, in a very bad position.”
Well, Adrienne has her flying monkeys around to do her dirty work so she doesn’t have to do it herself.
“The pole dancing was something that none of us really wanted to partake in, but all were willing to support Brandi. It is absolutely a 1000 percent more difficult than it appears! However we had a laugh, which is so important. I lead a pretty stressful life, so I always jump at the chance for a good giggle.”
I’ve gotta say you guys were good sports at trying it out. You live a stressful life? Yeah, I bet it’s stressful being a figurehead, isn’t it? Actually, I think you handled that situation really well – I probably would have said some very colorful things to say to Camille at that point.
“The dinner was proceeding with an unusual calm that often worries me as it normally doesn’t last long. Camille and Kyle raise the controversial subject of Adrienne, which was ridiculous. We had seen at the SUR tasting it is a subject matter on which we are divided. I have been to Vegas, as we all had, many times without Adrienne, and I could again without lamenting over her absence.”
Well, let’s be honest – Adrienne is not your friend and so lamenting her absence would really be a stretch. It cracked me up that of all people, it was Camille who brought up Adrienne… since you know, they’re besties and stuff… oh wait, they’re not? lolol,.. Kinda cracks me up that no one mentioned Taylor…
“The fact that Brandi commented that the Palms was no longer owned by the Maloofs was something I particularly didn’t care to discuss. I had known this prior to her attacking me over Pandora not choosing the hotel, for her party. I had known this as my friends had bought the 98 percent. I should’ve hit back and humiliated her at the reunion, the way she tried to humiliate me with her unwarranted accusations, but decided it was better left so she could continue to live in her delusional world.”
Adrienne is her own worst enemy. Well, except for the viewers. Well, and her ex-husband. Oh, and Brandi.
“You the viewer have been with me on the journey as I introduced my partner, financed the development, created the lounge, designed every inch of the space. So I defended myself, quantifying the shareholding between us. I sat there and wondered, if Kyle, who has known me for some time, eaten at SUR with me, witnessed the development, and seen my dedication to the business would maybe say something in my defense. I know for certain I would. I am becoming a little exasperated by the constant accusations and doubting my integrity. Where does it come from? I am constantly challenged by a bevy of staff in the workplace. I would prefer to be non-combative with my friends. Why is there a need to demean others? Is it with intent to elevate oneself? Whatever it was, it was unfounded, redundant, and ridiculous. Onwards we go.”
Kyle is not going to defend you, Lisa unless it’s expedient for her to do so. At least not while on Bravo.
“Pole dancing can be great exercise, an art form, or a way to line your pocket with mostly one dollar bills in front of guys I definitely wouldn’t want to bring home…none of which particularly excites me. Don’t get me wrong, any woman who benefits from spinning around upside down with her legs in the air should by all means stick with it…The opportunities could be endless. I tried hiding and avoiding taking a turn on the pole, but when Brandi called my name I decided to give it the old college try…and since I never went to college, the results were as expected. I’m glad the other girls were able to have some fun though.”
If you really didn’t want to participate, why didn’t you take Brandi to the side and tell her that you came to support her but not to pole dance? Instead, as BB said in her blog, you were a Debbie Downer and made even your audience feel uncomfortable as you pretended to try. I really like you – but you’re being pretty snarky about the whole thing. Usually, I do love me some snark… but be careful… snark can bite you on the dupa!
“I was hungry at this point and envisioning an evening of fabulous food, fine wine, and stimulating conversation. Everyone appeared in good spirits, so I thought we may finally enjoy a dinner without a fight breaking out. How naive of me to think it was possible to have a civilized dinner with these women, right? It must be an unwritten rule that something distasteful must go down at every meal. Perhaps this is how the girls stay so thin…they never end up eating and chew each other out instead.”
Coughs… “stimulating conversation?” Do you not realize you’re on a “Real Housewives” show? And no, it’s not an unwritten rule – I’m sure it’s in everyone’s contract that they need to bring drama to every dinner table. Some housewives have been known to actually even flip the table. Gotta say I love your last sentence… lolol.
“Fortunately, I spilled red wine on my dress, which was enough to shift the energy temporarily. Most of the women were helpful and that was very sweet, but Yolanda just gave me a disapproving stare. Not sure where that came from. All I could think was ‘Thank God I didn’t spill that red wine at Yolanda’s house because if it upset her in Vegas, I would really be up s— creek in Malibu.’”
Yeah, see… something has happened to put Kyle and Marisa at odds with Yo. We haven’t seen it yet – but it’s obvious in their talking heads and in their blogs…
“Maybe Yolanda has never spilled a drink before, which wouldn’t surprise me since her life is so pristine and perfect that it just wouldn’t fit in with her image. That said, I am admittedly clumsy and this won’t be the last time I spill a drink. As for the stain, I remembered my mother-in-law once told me advice Barbra Streisand gave her, white wine can be used to remove red wine stains. Thank you Babs, it worked!”
I’m sorry, Marisa, but you can’t simultaneously be all over Yo about name dropping (in her previous blog) – and then drop Babs’ name yourself.
Yolanda H. Foster
“As you can tell, I won’t be able to get a job as a pole dancer anytime soon. But even though I felt and looked like a total amateur, I really enjoyed and had a lot of fun at Brandi’s pole dancing event. She looked fantastic and thank god she did not need our expertise to get the job.”
It was really fun to see everyone out of their comfort zone. Most of you were good sports about it.
“It seems Adrienne is creating a beautiful collection and is focused on her business. I wish her luck and success in all her ventures. That said, I believe she is giving Brandi way too much energy and wish she would just move on and stop blaming others for the increasing misery in her life. You know, it’s the way Adrienne says “I hope Brandi is having fun in Vegas, I have a business to run.” Just rubs me the wrong way. . . I don’t know Adrienne very well because she never reached out to me, but I have observed her behavior and she comes off quite arrogant. Again she is belittling Brandi’s business to empower herself, and I find it very unattractive and unproductive.”
But it’s fun to blame others for our misery, since then we don’t have to accept any responsibility for it. Adrienne’s words that elevated her business ventures and demeaned Brandi’s were just so snarky and unnecessary.
“Kim’s phone call was a big surprise. I wished she had come to Vegas instead of having plastic surgery, because I was really worried that the anesthesia and medication would throw off the chemical balance in her brain and jeopardize her sobriety. It looks however, like she pulled it off, and, as always, I am rooting for her. If the nose job makes her feel better about herself, then how can we say it’s right or wrong?”
It was really interesting to me to see how proud Kim was of herself that she barely took any pain medication. I hope they quickly got rid of that medication once she was out of the woods.
“Marisa wasn’t having a great day and the red wine spill did not make that any better. BTW girls, Barbra Streisand could without a doubt give you some laundry tips. She is one of the most meticulous homemakers I know and has many talents beyond her singing and acting.”
Okay, I laffed out loud at this one. Kyle was so glib in saying she didn’t think that Barbra had ever cleaned a piece of laundry in her life so she wasn’t going to take advice from her. I don’t even drink, and even I know that white wine takes out red wine stains… I think I heard it on “Good Eats” – gotta love that Alton Brown. I love how Yo obviously knows Babs more than just to drop her name – and it’s so funny to me that in this situation, Kyle is such a wannabe. I know Kyle knows or has met many celebrities – but I’m sure she would die to know the caliber of people that Yo knows.
“We all have different friends in and outside this group so I am not dismissing Kyle and Camille’s friendship with Adrienne but why are we ruining another dinner over this?”
“I like Camille, but unfortunately there seems to be a different perception of her conversation with Brandi. I did find the SUR remark way below the belt and I don’t know what Lisa did to deserve that. It’s concerning though to see someone speak with such conviction about private business matters — a textbook example of the seed of trash talk leading to gossip! If you are going to stand up and make a scene, you better get your facts straight.”
It really made Camille look silly, didn’t it?
“I am really having a hard time figuring out who is loyal to whom. I believe it is totally OK not to be best friends with every person in the group. Naturally you have more chemistry with some than others but just be honest about it and fight fair.”
Well, I’ve admittedly watched every season of RHOBH, and I still don’t know exactly where the loyalty lines are drawn. I’m sure once I figure it out – something will happen and the lines will have to be redrawn again. Oh, and no, you’re never going to get a fair fight. Alcohol is usually involved. Sometimes it comes down to a battle of wits – and some are just genuinely unarmed.
“Kyle using Brandi’s “nose job” as a fact of credibility is such an immature and mean girl remark. . .My thoughts of Brandi are not more or less, with or without a nose job.”
I would be surprised that since Brandi has admitted to having some very private work done – that she wouldn’t readily admit to a nose job at this point. I’m not sure why Kyle was so insistent that Brandi had a nose job.
“I am starting to really feel the hurt feelings from the last reunion that is fueling all this negativity. In the plane on our way home, I really pushed Kyle and Lisa to have a heart to heart so that I could better understand. I listened to two women trying to justify their position. I saw a lot of pain and tears but also love between two souls that have lost their trust and friendship but are not really ready to give it all up and walk away. The next day I have to admit I finally watched the reunion of RHOBH’s Season 2 just to understand what really happened on that defining night that created so much damage in this group. I finally realized that I had made a big mistake by not investing time in the history of these ladies.”
Yeah, you probably should have watched at least one season of the franchise before signing your contract. I’m still quite surprised you didn’t. It’s probably one of the biggest mistakes of your life, lolol.
“To be honest with you, I really felt bad for Lisa and without knowing all the details. It seemed like a mean attack on a woman they once called their best friend.”
It’s still so funny to me that people actually believed that Lisa, arguably one of the richest of all the housewives in all the land, would actually sell a measly $10,000 (approx.) story to the tabloids. I get that people who are in a worse financial condition would do so – but Lisa? Especially since selling stories could have a direct negative impact on the clientele frequenting her restaurants.
“If I could share anything with my girlfriends and you, it would be this: Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future but concentrate the mind on the present moment.”
