Let’s Chat – Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Chat blog.

And the argument continues … and continues … and continues.  I wonder what Paul thinks when he watches the show.  Too bad he’s too much of a class act to tell us.

  1. Powell says:

    Good eveening. As Alfred Hitchcock would say. And yes. The argument heard around the world continues tonight. Hey moms. Your kids arguments last 5 minutes & these ladies last 4 months. 🙂

  2. nyc mama says:

    I think Paul is a little embarrassed. Hindsight is 20/20 and clearly he hitched his wagon to the wrong pony. Adrienne was checked out long ago but he tried to defend her as many husbands would do but the fool was duped too. I can’t imagine he is proud of this or happy about what he now knows.

  3. Nancy says:

    Anyone home?

  4. VV says:

    Beverly Hills Darling Shi Shi Shi Shi!

  5. VV says:

    Kim and Faye. Great! Time to go to the kitchen for a snack.

  6. cusi77 says:

    Kennedy has a real Louis Vuitton purse! That book sold!

  7. melthehound says:

    So Lips won’t be at the party 😀 😀 😀 😀

  8. Nancy says:

    CPS!!!!!!!!

  9. melthehound says:

    Drunken Heinz….

  10. melthehound says:

    Ya THINK, Kyle?

  11. Wow – I was hoping it was editing – but that phone call was awful

  12. VV says:

    Did Traylor say the party was tonight? So, Nose reveal is the same day as White party?

    • Beckygrey says:

      No, she said she wouldn’t make the Nose party but would be back in time for the White party. The were at least a week apart. Taylor stayed for in Co for 3 days.

  13. VV says:

    Kyle looks scare of what Marisa is saying. Hmmm Kyle has been talking to Marisa about Traylor

    • Nancy says:

      Ditto.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      VV-I dont think Taylor was sure of her own name during that phone call…she didnt know what day or night is was…let alone which party she was missing-what a hot mess she is!!!

      • melthehound says:

        When was she ever anything otherwise.

      • VV says:

        Jill, look at Kyle’s face when Marisa started criticizing Taylor. Kyle was having a mini mental panic attack.

        • Pghemtchick says:

          Remember Marissa’a favorite part of the Vegas trip according to her twitter : ‘sitting by the pool talking shit’. That would have been w/Kyle and Camille. Wonder who’s ears were burning during that convo.

  14. melthehound says:

    Don’t let those lips anywhere near your kids, Kyle…

  15. L.A. Chica says:

    I’m getting a preview of tonight’s episode via these posts, and I sincerely thank you all! Seriously, I HATE suspense! 😀

  16. Nancy says:

    That poor doctor!

  17. VV says:

    Dear Bravo, please don’t drag these nose reveal for another 30 minutes. Kyle, Charo and Faye are not that interesting. Zzzzzzzz

  18. VV says:

    Dude, you outed her on National TV!

  19. Nancy says:

    Yawn!!!!!!!!

  20. melthehound says:

    Isn’t she doing her TH interviews with the ‘new’ nose?

    What’s the big f’ing deal about the ‘reveal’?

  21. VV says:

    OMG! Adrienne and it wasn’t even official yet

  22. How many times did Adrienne say my husband would have done just as good a job. What is wrong with her?

  23. Powell says:

    How many freakin times was Adrienne going to say that.

  24. Adrienne is trying too hard to pretend she is proud and in love with Paul.

  25. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    I kind of like Marissa but did she not get the memo that in BH people get dolled up for ALL parties? I mean there she is with a “Mommy ponytail” (which is how I wear my hair everyday-so Im not hatin’) and no makeup. Thats how we go to parties in the burbs….but that aint how they do in BH!!!!

    • L.A. Chica says:

      That’s how I go to parties in BH. 😆 Well, I try to make my hair look good, but unless it’s a black tie kind of fancy event I don’t wear makeup. But then if I were going to be on TV I would. Marisa definitely marches to the beat of a different drummer…

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        She does Chica and thats why I like her….but it doesnt show her in the best BH light!!!

  26. Powell says:

    Oh. This is Lisa’s old house on fire. Yikes!!

  27. cusi77 says:

    The Lisa’s ex house party!

  28. Putchka says:

    That nose party is ridic, but Kim is acting somewhat sober at least. Ugh Adrienne “my husband could do better”, she should be talking about herself!

  29. Nancy says:

    STFU Adrienne.

  30. cusi77 says:

    Charo making campaing against Paul not being a good dad!

  31. melthehound says:

    Good thing Morris got that commission check already..

  32. Jules says:

    Adrienne is one cooco. The way she ties to spin like Paul should have gotten in the car and left. He was correct the street was blocked. Heard one of kids say “are we going to drive over the cones. She must think the viewers are dirt dumb like she is.

  33. AZGirl says:

    That is so sad that Adrienne chooses to make Paul look like a bad dad.

    • $25,000 says:

      She is horrible to him. No wonder Paul called Brandi and apologized to her for the way she was treated. I’m sure his eyes were opened wide once he was on the receiving end of Adriennes tricks.

  34. AZGirl says:

    Who are the older boys?

  35. AZGirl says:

    Oh great it is a big white condom

  36. melthehound says:

    Kyle, How many of these parties have you had? This should be a science by now. Puh-Leeze

    • AZGirl says:

      Really! Like this party planner has not jumped off a cliff by now?

    • Powell says:

      Right. I was like why is she bothering Ken. He’s been doin this for her for a long time . If it were me I would come & check the last half hr. If you use the same person I’m sure they know what you want.

  37. melthehound says:

    And we couldn’t care less about you Martyr

  38. Nancy says:

    Please!

  39. VV says:

    This is a rehearsed scene Dr TP and Charo. You ain’t fooling us.

  40. Oh Paul – how foolish you must feel.

  41. Ok her attorney said there WAS a letter but there is NO letter????!!!

  42. AZGirl says:

    Love me some Lisa and Ken.

  43. Nancy says:

    I wish Yolanda and David would show up.

  44. $25,000 says:

    Wow Adrienne sure isn’t cutting Paul any slack at all!

  45. VV says:

    Where was Moe last year asking Camille and Russell (RIP) to talk to each other to put their difference aside?

  46. Jules says:

    Did anyone else notice that at the tea party faye was removed from the table for some of the brandi adrienne fight. Very cut up edit.

  47. NJBev says:

    Oh crap.
    I keep forgetting the show starts at 8.

  48. Guess Karmas bit Adrienne in the azss!

  49. Powell says:

    That’s why I say A doesn’t know how to use words. She says the same thing over & over. “Karma, karma, karma.”. Ugh

  50. Nancy says:

    Here comes trouble.

  51. AZGirl says:

    Hey do they not own a landscaper? That grass in the front is overgrown and looks like crap.

  52. VV says:

    Baby Wipes?!!!!!!! LMAO!

  53. AZGirl says:

    Lisa shuts down Paul

  54. Powell says:

    But she doesn’t apologize or say I’ll replace it. Ugh!!!

  55. melthehound says:

    A dark brown stain from the Martyr.. Something about that just sounds wrong. Just sayin..

  56. melthehound says:

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAgh 😯

  57. Powell says:

    Kim is looking at Taylor likes she’s crazy.

  58. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    When Kim looks at you like you are crazy….you know your ass is in trouble!!!!

  59. AZGirl says:

    Taylor just wobbled in…..oh…I just had amazing sex for the last 2 days….who is Kennedy again?

  60. Powell says:

    Out of all of Kim’s faults. I don’t think she’d ever forget where one if her kids is.

  61. NJBev says:

    In Kims TH her neck looks like it may have had some work-
    It is much “looser” at the White Party

  62. AZGirl says:

    So Kyle what is that big white blow up thingy that is in your backyard? Oh…..its a…..octopus or.something or other…no I think it is a condom.

  63. Jules says:

    Oh my God if i do not see the letter to night i am going to scream. This has goooone ooooooon toooooooo loooong. What could she have said that was so harmful that no one at the lunch reacted horrified or said somthing to brandi there or called adrenne as they drove home.

  64. AZGirl says:

    HA! Ken is looking down the front of Lisa and Kyle’s dresses..

  65. cusi77 says:

    With all the shoes these women have, they finish wearing the same shoes! One thing is sure… those shoes must be very expensive!

  66. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    If brandi wants to speak to Adrienne alone why is she looking to do that in the middle of a party???

  67. VV says:

    I’m sorry I can’t forget the way Dr TP treated Brandi. He still on my bad list

  68. Nancy says:

    She should ask Kim for an Xanax. Just kidding.

  69. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Ok this is like 4th grade….pass a note

  70. Nancy says:

    So Adrienne just said that there WAS a letter!

  71. Powell says:

    I don’t understand either Brandi.

  72. NJBev says:

    Adrienne talks out of both sides of her ass~

  73. melthehound says:

    Biotch Please!

  74. Powell says:

    Letters!!

  75. VV says:

    We all know it was Bernie trash talkin. He did it to Lisa. Why are you acting shocked Dr TP?

  76. Nancy says:

    That shut them up!

  77. Degroohj says:

    Adrienne just got caught red handed!!

  78. Adrienne is BUSTED like a water balloon in the hand of a kid on a hot summer day!

  79. Did you see the look on Paul’s face? That’s the moment he realized Adrienne was lying.

  80. Powell says:

    No, no, no, no, no, no. That’s not true. Biotch

  81. cusi77 says:

    They are hypocrates. First thing true.

  82. VV says:

    Here we go again. Kyle says one thing on the scene and another thing on her TH.

  83. Nancy says:

    Adrienne is sooooooooooooooo patronizing.

  84. cusi77 says:

    OMG. My stomach hurts! This is about tobe finished and another week dragging the same story!

  85. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Brandi had a bag full of emails? Where is the letter from the lawyer? Did I miss it?

    • cusi77 says:

      According to Lisa Brandi received the kind of letter that Camille received from Russell, which means that Camille owes Adrienne loyalty because Adrienne deffended her last year.

    • Beckygrey says:

      Adrienne did admit to the letter being sent. Brandi also provided proof of what Bernie had been doing. It’s so funny how Paul’s light when on when he read the emails about Bernie, and maybe this is his proof that Bernie was selling stories about him. Funny how Paul is now suing Bernie. Karma Karma, you were right Adrienne. (she is a little slow on the uptake)

  86. Lisa Renee says:

    VV, are you with fever child, Not one STFU Kyle yet. It’s my own personal drinking game 🙂

  87. Nancy says:

    Go Ken!!!!!!!!!!!!

  88. melthehound says:

    Bernice is the root of all evil. GO Ken!

  89. Nancy says:

    I can’t believe that “Taylor” is sober!

  90. VV says:

    Dude, hrt a clue. Your wife put your practice down and now you are offended at the Hoof comment.

    • cusi77 says:

      I wonder how Paul feels today about Bernie! About Adrienne! Charo will use this scene she wanting to go with her kids to a safe place and Pauld decided to stay.

  91. Powell says:

    There she goes again. No, no, no, no.

  92. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    These idiots only want to make everything about themselves-Lisa and Ken and Taylor. Fight on your own time…back to the damn letter!!!!

  93. melthehound says:

    Who the phuck is this Dwite?

  94. nyc mama says:

    Paul has been a real asshole in this episode.

    • cusi77 says:

      He must be thrilled watching how he defended Charo and how she was always putting him down! NOT!

      • nyc mama says:

        I am sure tonight is not going to be his fav knowing the show is airing.

        Let’s see how Adrienne, Kyle and Faye spin it now.

  95. OMG I’m agreeing with Taylor right now! Scary!

  96. Powell says:

    Low blow Paul. Not cool saying that to Ken.

  97. melthehound says:

    And so it will continue. Yawn…..

  98. Nancy says:

    (((Kim)))

  99. Powell says:

    Paris trip huh. Should be interesting.

  100. melthehound says:

    RuhRoh… Kim stoned again? Say it ain’t so, Joe. Say it ain’t so…

  101. AZGirl says:

    So Maury and Kyle head to Paris on COMMISSION MONEY! Paul probably feels like an asshole right now. Ken kicks ass…..period. He has the too hottest women taking him out the door. HA!

  102. melthehound says:

    I just can’t with these snots who work in Lisa’s (51%) restaurant.

  103. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Wait…Brandi just wanted Adrienne to admit that she “started it”? Im so confused. There is no lawsuit-we didnt see the much talked about letter…WTF did Brandi spend 10 or 20 grand on???

    • Nancy says:

      Jill,
      Adrienne admitted that there was a letter.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        When? I thought she said it was sent to Brandi’s friend? Even so-I still dont understand the 20 or 20 grand…I guess I never will

        • Nancy says:

          She said to Brandi…”A letter is not a law suit”. I don’t get the 20K either though.

        • L.A. Chica says:

          Just as Camille went to her lawyer when Russell sent his letter threatening to sue her, Brandi had to consult her lawyer when she received a similar letter from Adrienne, and as we all know lawyers are expensive.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            But 10 or 20 grand??? Who did she hire??? That is quite steep to have someone explain a C&D letter no?

            • Degroohj says:

              Adrienne said in her blog that a letter was sent to a friend. Her face tonight in the episode said otherwise. She’s bending the truth and is a hypocrite to boot. Brandi shouldn’t have said what she said in the spirit of kindness, but Adrienne has succeeded in looking like the bad guy in the way she handled it.

              • Powell says:

                Totally. If A hadn’t gone to her lawyer, A would have gotten the sympathy she wants because we would have said Brandi should be ashamed, how could Brandi do that. And we would have been on A’s side. But even though Brandi was wrong we’re on her side.

            • Beckygrey says:

              Adrienne said in the limo to Paul…If there is a letter I didn’t see it. lol. She then says to Brandi that a letter was sent but it wasn’t a lawsuit. That was after Jennifer explains about the letter and the threat of lawsuit if she didn’t come to the meeting. Adrienne admitted there was a letter based on all of these twitter tweets and that Brandi had made. Brandi explains that she has proof of what was said about her and that is why bRandi said those things about Adrienne and Bernie.
              Possible Timelines;
              Call to Brandi to take Lisa down at the Reunion
              Reunion..Brandi sides with Lisa and talks about Adrienne and Pauls marriage not being real.
              Adrienne mad at Brandi and wants her to recant what she said about the take-down and their marriage and tries to get Brandi fired.
              Adrienne and Bernie go on a smear campaign in ROL against Brandi
              Brandi tells Adrienne Bernie is f with her..Adrienne says she’ll fire him if it’s true..But she doesn’t and the smears continue
              Brandi takes to Tweeter and slams Bernie and Adrienne
              Taping begins
              Kyle ask what’s the issue….Brandi says she’s a liar and gives examples and that she tried to get her fired.
              The big reveal at Mauricio’s event
              Adrienne threatens a lawsuit and calling Brandi a drug addict and a bad mother
              Adrienne attorney sends a letter to come meet to sign a “gag’ order or they will sue.
              Brandi got an attorney because she didn’t go to the meeting.
              And……
              PAUL SAID IN HIS TALKING HEAD “DID SHE GET WARNED, YES”.
              (Same as Russell did to Camille and Camille’s attorney said stay away from the Armstongs) So that ‘s why Brandi paid for attorney. Adrienne got caught in a lie. First there was no letter. Then there is no lawsuit.
              Sorry for the length…Bam it’s over!

        • melthehound says:

          Actually, at the Moroccan thing, I thought she said 2 thousand.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Lisa said 20 grand last week and 10 grand tonight…when she said 20 last week Brandi was there and did not correct her

            • melthehound says:

              I don’t know what Lisa is talking about and I don’t think she does either. Maybe she got her own lawyer fee confused with Brandi’s.

          • Degroohj says:

            That was awhile back now. Her bills probably grew with it continuing to be an issue. The Bernie thing is probably a part of it too.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              Why would the Bernie thing be part of it? Is Brandi suing Bernie? I still dont get how a letter could cost so much….

          • L.A. Chica says:

            Yes, that was her initial consultation with her lawyer about the letter. I can only speculate on why further consultation was needed (Bravo’s reaction and interaction with Brandi if they also received such a letter from Adrienne — and given the way the show has been edited I’d say that’s a safe guess), what she she should or should not do in relation to Adrienne and Paul as filming continued, etc. Lawyers aren’t cheap. The ones I know out hear charge several hundred dollars an hour, plus they bill for every phone call, every minute of time to document a case, making photocopies, assistants’ time for handling paperwork and filing. It can add up to some serious money.

            • L.A. Chica says:

              Out HERE, not hear

            • melthehound says:

              I understand that… I’m sure the sleuths around here will have to do some timeline digging and find out what actually happened and when. Never trust the Bravo edit.

            • All I know is that the last time I hired an attorney for a simple child support adjustment hearing, I spent $3000.00. You pay for everything…filing fees,phone calls, research by law clerks,attorney hours ect. Not Cheap!

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                I get that but what did Brandi need to file? What needed to be researched? Phone calls I understand but no lawsuit to fight. If a lawyer cost 20,000 to read a letter and explain it-I should have went to law school.

                • Research could have been done to see if there was any case precedence in CA law that would allow Adrienne to pursue a lawsuit and how to defend against it. My own divorce settlement set state precedence when my lawyer got much of it overturned in appeals court.Plus research into the validity of what Brandi actually said could have been done. Obviously a threat was made and a good lawyer would begin preparing the case should it end up in court.

          • Beckygrey says:

            I believe the 2k was to retain an attorney. There rest of the money was for the attorney to handle take over communication for Brandi. Brandi and Adrienne had a “settlement” at the end of 2012, which I’m sure that the attorney negotiated on behave of Brandi.

            • Dixie says:

              I bet part of the “settlement” requires that the letter not see the light of day. That is why Brandi hasn’t produced it on camera.

              • Cartwheels says:

                what about her receipts for lawyer fees, can she show those?
                what about the e-mails, are those not part of the settlement?

                sorry, just joking around. I have never heard that a C&D letter requires a settlement though.

  104. I don’t need a letter to convince me what Brandi has said is true. Adrienne and Paul admitted that they hired an attorney, that Brandi should STFU about them of face their wrath. When you admittedly hire an attorney against someone it is logical to assume letters where sent and legal acton was discussed. Whether the actually lawsuit was filed is beside the point. Brandi was threatened and bullied by Adrienne becase she dared speak about a truth that Paul and Adrienne didn’t want revealed. If you have secrets don’t do reality TV. When you threaten a lawsuit because you don’t like what’s being said just makes you a rich, manipulative, vile BULLY!

  105. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    So Adrienne acted like a rich bitch and had her lawyer send Brandi’s friend (who the hell is this friend??) a C&D letter. Did Brandi get a letter too? She didn’t show any letter tonight-she had some emails but I didn’t get the point of all that.
    The bottom line is there was NEVER a lawsuit…yet we heard the words lawsuit a gazillion times this season….much ado about bullshit. No one got sued but Brandi said over and over that they were suing her…why?

    • L.A. Chica says:

      I don’t remember – did Brandi say her friend received the letter or did someone else say that?

      • Degroohj says:

        Why would Brandi consult legal representation if her friend was sent a letter? Why would Bravo heavily edit out a huge part of the biggest storylines of the season if a legitimate lawsuit was not threatened? It’s obvious that although nothing was formally filed that a legitimate threat was made that cause Brandi to hire expensive representation and for Bravo to also react. They didn’t even edit out Russell last year…think about it!

        • majnon says:

          Well said degroohj!

        • Nancy says:

          Ditto. Enough said. This is getting boring.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            My question is the same…why did Brandi hire a lawyer and spend all that money on nothing? There is clearly no lawsuit-no one can find any such thing. We didnt see a letter to Brandi from a lawyer. Brandi said over and over that they were suing her. But they are not. What is the point? This whole season has given me agita…and no answers.
            Maybe Adrienne is suing Bravo-why would they edit anything if they showed Russell and all of that? I feel like we all got played with this stupid fake suing story line. Bravo got the ratings they wanted-

            • L.A. Chica says:

              I’m not sure if you’ve considered any of our explanations here, Jill. What I don’t understand is how your questions have been answered and yet you’re still asking the same questions.

              • realhousewifeva says:

                LOL

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                Chica-] I dont think there is any explanation as why Brandi ran around for the whole season saying that she was being sued when it is an out right LIE. Unless Brandi is dumb and hired the dumbest most expensive lawyer in the world-there is no way in all hell that she spent 20,000 on a non lawsuit. Any lawyer would know that Brandi was not being sued. The only explanation for any of it is that “They are suing me” sounds better than “they want me to STFU”.

                • L.A. Chica says:

                  Jill, let me repost what shadowsnomore said above:

                  Research could have been done to see if there was any case precedence in CA law that would allow Adrienne to pursue a lawsuit and how to defend against it. My own divorce settlement set state precedence when my lawyer got much of it overturned in appeals court.Plus research into the validity of what Brandi actually said could have been done.

                  Reply

        • L.A. Chica says:

          Thank you, Degrooj. I couldn’t agree with you more! I only asked the question to get clarification on how that idea got out there. I know it wasn’t Brandi who said it, but couldn’t remember who it was.

        • Cartwheels says:

          I think Bravo in its masterful diabolical madness decided to edit out that part of the story to make it even more salacious, think for a second, if we would have known since the very beginning what Brandi has said, do you think they could have dragged 10 episodes out of this?
          If we would have heard since the beginning what Brandi said, I am sure very few would have thought that Brandi was not on the wrong and obviously Bravo is fully invested in making Brandi the victim of the story.
          Adriennne has powerful lawyers but so does Bravo, if Bravo edited something out was not to protect Adriennne’s secret, they could care less about her, especially after she quit mid season and had to be forced to come back.

          Bravo was only playing to create more drama and speculation and they got exactly the results they intended to have.

      Iirc Brandi said she got a letter from a&p lawyer threatening a lawsuit.

    • Cartwheels says:

      The letter for what I gathered was sent from Adrienne to one of her ex-partners, this lady allegedly was the one who was telling Adrienne’s secrets to not only Brandi but others as well. Adrienne’s lawyer sent a C&D letter to this lady, but Brandi decided to spend 20k on lawyer fees for a letter that was not even sent to her?

      I am calling BS on this one, I don’t believe there would be a lawyer as unethical to charge her 20K for a C&D letter that is not even directed to her.

      So in this case if Brandi had the time and patience to print out e-mails, why didn’t she show the letter directed to her? Because there is none.

      Brandi made up the amount of money she spent in lawyer fees just to garner sympathy towards the poor single mother, she obviously is smarter than I gave her credit for and the fact that not even one of the othert ladies has questioned that exhorbitant and ridiculous amount for a non lawsuit just tells me that they are dummer than I thought, all of them, expect Lisa, Lisa knows there is no lawsuit and no C&D letter against Brandi, she is just playing dumb because it serves her purposes.

      • L.A. Chica says:

        I disagree, Cartwheels. 🙂

        • Cartwheels says:

          That is okay, I am glad you do.

          If we would agree on everything, it would be boring. 🙂

          • L.A. Chica says:

            So true! But I don’t understand why – at this point of exposition on the show – we are still disagreeing? Maybe in another episode? 😉

      • Beckygrey says:

        Listen to what was said by both Adrienne and Paul, a letter was sent to Brandi…

        • Cartwheels says:

          even if the letter was directed to Brandi, there is not one ethical lawyer who would charge her 20K to explain her the simple difference between a lawsuit and a C&D letter.
          Brandi should be going after the crook lawyer who grossly overcharged her, if that was the case.

          • L.A. Chica says:

            If someone’s lawyer writes a letter threatening a suit, your lawyer is going to do a lot more than merely “explain” the difference between a lawsuit and a C&D letter. What is so difficult to understand about this, I don’t get why you and Jill don’t get it?

            • Cartwheels says:

              Because until a lawsuit is filed, there is not much the lawyer can do, what would a lawyer do that would be that expensive? research? supoena witnesses, what? if he doesn’t know what he is fighting, what kind of work can he do? prepare in advance? I have never heard of such case so that is why I do not get it. Maybe if there is a lawyer who could actually explain what kind of preparation takes place when you do receive a C&D letter it would be helpful.
              Tamra sent a C&D letter to Jeanna and threw a glass of win on her face on top of that but I never heard Jeanna talk about hiring lawyers or spending that much money and I do think that if anybody had a case it would be her because she was assaulted and because what she heard was on a first case basis being that Simon confided in her.

              • L.A. Chica says:

                Please read all our posts related to this, following through to the bottom of this comments page. It should be very clear how legal expenses can EASILY be racked up before any suit is filed.

                Keep in mind that lawyers charge for every single minute of their time, their staff’s time, and on top of time they charge for the the cost of things like sending faxes, making photocopies, every move that is made on behalf of a client. They’re not like doctors, who absorb those costs as a part of doing business — EVERYthing is charged to a lawyer’s client.

    • Beckygrey says:

      The reason Brandi showed Paul the emails was because Paul asked Brandi if she had proof that Bernie was selling stories to ROL. The papers that she had was the proof that Bernie was trying to sell stories. That is why Paul’s entire demeanor changed. And in his TH he said “Did she get warned…Yes”.

    • Beckygrey says:

      @ Jill… Brandi said that the letter, emails with Bernie and the attorney fees were in the paperwork she gave Paul. I have a feeling this is where Paul realized what he was dealing with in Adrienne. I agree with a post upstream must be apart of the settlement not to show the letter

    I LOVE this blog. Read every day (for years), comment on ocassion. I LOVE the karma episode between Adrienne & Paul. Paul should be the straight guy in a comedy team. He’s got a great side-eye. Thanx to everyone for this great site, it’s my go-to place for smart, funny people. CDAN is good also, same caliber.

  110. realhousewifeva says:

    Brandi said in her talking heads when the ‘lawsuit’ was first mentioned that she was contacted by the lawyer saying she needed to sign an agreement to keep her mouth shut, or face a possible lawsuit. I know that in the heat of the moment while filming she was using ‘lawsuit’ and ‘letter’ interchangeably, but that doesn’t negate the fact that she VERY CLEARLY stated in her talking head what it all entailed. I think people who are picking apart ‘lawsuit’ vs. ‘letter’ (camille, adrienne, loony Adrienne fans, etc) know full well that she was mistaken in using these words interchangeably, but they need to find something to pick at. I think people who are not sue happy oftentimes do get the two confused. If you are being threatened to get sued if you speak about a person, and the entire point of the show you are on is to speak about these people, then I can see why Brandi was worried and concerned.

    Last season Camille was contacted by Russell, not even a lawyer, and she still got her lawyers involved and they told her that she needed to avoid Russell and Taylor. The entire cast was overly concerned by this threat and went into frenzy mode over it. But now Brandi is overreacting?
    I do believe that Brandi had to get lawyers involved, clearly Bravo also had to get lawyers involved since Andy Cohen said it on WWHL and there is a lot more to this whole thing than we are allowed to see.

    Adrienne is talking out of both sides of her mouth and is a liar. There is a letter….there isn’t a letter…the lawyer sent it without her knowledge…. the lawyer didn’t send it at all…she doesn’t want to get lawyers involved…she had to get lawyers involved…the letter was sent to Brandi’s friend who Adrienne just ASSUMED was probably the one who told Brandi these secrets (WTF? How can you hire a lawyer to scare someone you are not even sure is involved…Adrienne is F’ing nuts). She needs to make up her mind. Actually, she just needs to go away. So sick of her fake face and fake personality.

    • Nancy says:

      AMEN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • majnon says:

      Yes, yes, yes, go away Adrienne. Great job RealHva

      • realhousewifeva says:

        lol thanks….maybe if we wish hard enough, Adrienne will be gone next season! I think she hasn’t been on WWHL yet this season, while all the others have (Brandi twice, I believe). Hopefully that’s a sign.

    • Cartwheels says:

      I could give Brandi the benefit of the doubt to have those two terms lawsuit vs C&D letter confused, after all she is not the most educated castmate on that show, but there are two things that stop me from that.

      Brandi had just went through a crazy divorce were she has been in litigation for almost two years, lawyers involved, court dates involved, etc. Brandi surely knows what a lawsuit looks like and how the docker number clearly announces a lawsuit and the terms petitioner and defendant are there.

      Let’s pretend that she never paid attention to the letters and let her lawyers handle everything, she surely took the letter (not directed to her but to one of her “friends”) and told the lawyer what? that her friend was being sued and she was scared she would get sued as well? that she was worried about the implications to herself? Okay, let’s pretend that is the case.

      Any reputable lawyer would have charged her, even in BH, no more than 500 dollars for a consultation fee and told her very clearly the difference between a C&D letter and a lawsuit and would advice her to not to talk about her and try not to be on the same room with Adrienne, just like Camille lawyers did.

      Where Brandi loses me is in the lawyer fees, there was no lawsuit, not even a C&D letter directed to her and she wants me to believe that she spent 20K in lawyer fees? for what?
      This amount of money only tells me that she either had more than one consultation in which case after the first meeting she would know the difference between these two terms and would had stop using the term lawsuit, (she used it in Vegas by saying “Adrienne is suing me” when she already clearly knew this was not a lawsuit.) or that she effectively was in the full blown procedings of a lawsuit.

      Brandi can’t have it both ways, she either was being sued by Adrienne and that is why she spent that much, then all she needs is to present copies of the lawsuit and her lawyer bills, or she received a C&D letter and had lawyer consultation fees in such an incredible amount and was scammed by the lawyer, or she has nothing, a lawyer would be completely unethical to charge her anything else than an initial consultation for a letter than was not even directed to her.

      Brandi has the answer in her hands, she needs to show the letter (I think it is fair to say there is no lawsuit) and her lawyer bills and put this to rest.
      It would be awful to find out that she has been embellishing the grossly exagerated the amount of her lawyer fees just to play on the viewers emotions towards the poor single mother that she portrays herself to be.

      • realhousewifeva says:

        Well I’ve never been sued or even threatened to be sued, so I can’t really say how much that all costs. But I’m not sure what lawyers for divorce have to do with this type of threatened lawsuit. Divorce laywer fees are not lawsuits, right? My sister got divorced and dealt with all the back and forth but she and her ex were not suing eachother in the sense that Adrienne was threatening a lawsuit. My sister spent over 50,000 dollars and it wasn’t even all settled before the ex ran away to another country and she could no longer afford to pay the lawyers who basically (IN MY OPINION) did nothing.

        I guess that’s why I could believe Brandi could have spent a lot of money (I doubt 20 grand but who knows). However, I think there is MUCH MORE to the lawyer thing, because we DO KNOW that Adrienne’s lawyers got involved BIG TIME. there is no way that Bravo would cut all this stuff out if her lawyers were not working overtime. So I highly doubt that they went after Bravo and Brandi’s friend who once worked for them, but not Brandi- who was the person who brought it all out in the open on camera. And if Brandi was unwilling to cooperate with their demands, I can imagine it could get pricey with her lawyers, Adrienne’s lawyers, Bravo’s lawyers, etc…However, we are not being told the whole story here but if I had to choose who I believe more? BRANDI.

        • Cartwheels says:

          Until Andy doesn’t say it so himself (that Bravo got sued and that is why they had to edit that part out) I will continue to believe that Bravo chose to edit that out for rating plots.

          A regular divorce probably not, even thought while through mine I learn a bit about law and custody agreements and all kind of legalese, just for my own protection, but we are talking about Brandi’s divorce from Eddie, with Leann being part of the equation, I am sure that divorce was crazy.

          My reasoning still stands, even if she didn’t know or had ever set foot on a courtroom, all she needed was the initial consultation with a lawyer to realize she wasn’t being sued, specially not on a C&D letter not directed to her. For 20K the lawyer would had made sure she understood at least that.

          • Beckygrey says:

            Cartwheel, we were told about the legal action of Adrienne’s attorney against “Bravo” airing the “secret” before the season began.

          • realhousewifeva says:

            Do you actually believe that Bravo would choose to edit out their biggest storyline of the season? If that was the case they would have cut it off at the knees the minute Brandi blurted it out and advised the ladies not to talk about it at all again on camera. Simple as that. Instead they set up scenario after scenario (in what world does someone throw a dinner party to celebrate their newly decorated dining room?) in which it would be discussed over and over. They probably loved filming all these juicy scenes, until Adrienne started making it difficult for them. So they found a way around it while not interrupting the storyline.

            This is the same network that exploited the death of Russell Armstrong and Kim’s alcoholism and you think they suddenly grew a heart for Adrienne’s surrogacy? Kyle, Lisa, and Brandi (if not others) have all said that Adrienne got her lawyers involved so that Bravo wouldn’t air the comments and none of them are allowed to speak about it. Andy himself said on the After show with Kyle that he hopes Adrienne would allow it to be discussed at the reunion. If they really just chose to not allow it, I doubt Andy would be hoping that Adrienne would allow it to be discussed.

            If there is a threat that she would be sued unless she complied with demands that she was not willing to comply with, then yes, I believe there was more to it than just “Oh, it’s a cease and desist, now just be quiet and move right along”. Adrienne herself screamed “That’s a big old LAWSUIT”, so I believe she was going to follow through with that threat until she got sidetracked with tormenting her husband instead.

        • Powell says:

          I think there was a lot of back & forth between Brandi & A’s lawyers so since they charge by the hour I wouldn’t be surprised if it costs $10-$20 k.

      • Powell says:

        I said the other night she needs to present these papers she said she has in her TH. Present it then everyone can STFU about it.

        • Powell says:

          Everyone on the show that is. 🙂

        • Cartwheels says:

          Exactly. I hope Brandi comes prepared with her file on hand to the reunion.
          First it was a lawsuit, then it was not
          First it was 2K in lawyer fees, not it is 20K
          Then it was a C&D letter and now they is the possibility that it is not even directed to her.
          If I was Brandi I would come with all proper legal documentation and/or e-mails and be done with this issue that keeps dragging forever.

          • realhousewifeva says:

            In Brandi’s blog she said she brought all the emails between the lawyers (which costs money with every word) as well as her lawyer bills, to the White Party. Just because the editing didn’t show it to us (Adrienne’s got some good lawyers, I’ll give her that) doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

            • Cartwheels says:

              I thought she said the e-mails were between her and Bernie and she offered the e-mails as proof that he had been trying to sell stories about her to ROL.

              • realhousewifeva says:

                She said in her blog that the paperwork she brought was emails between her and Bernie, emails between lawyers and her lawyer bills.

    • nyc mama says:

      I agree. And Camille’s hypocrisy is glaring as is Mauricio”s.

    • Laineylainey says:

      You’re good realhwva.

    • Powell says:

      No Adrienne needs to tell the truth. She does nothing but lie. We don’t know what the divorce was about but I bet that when it got to that point Paul realized that A was lying about a lot of this. That’s why I said I don’t believe A had Paul speak to the lawyers to handle this. She did it. She wouldn’t trust Paul e/this. I think just like Russell did to Taylor, Adrienne did not tell Paul everything she was doing when speaking to the lawyer. This has gone beyond “the secret”. A does nothing but lie & she’s not very good at it.

    • L.A. Chica says:

      Yes, realhousewifeva!

  113. realhousewifeva says:

    Kyle tweeted:

    Taylor had arranged to have Kennedy taken to her Moms to stay. Then the nanny left her with me w/out asking @TaylorArmstrong

    So, why didn’t Kyle say this on the show? Something like “Oh yah, I told your nanny to keep Kennedy here with me and we told your mom”

    • Nancy says:

      Because Kyle likes to stir the sh*t!

    • Because Kyle and Kim are sh*t stirrers and that wouldn’t have given them anything to gossip about!

    • nyc mama says:

      Read Taylor’s blog, she doesn’t know wny either. I hate to say it but her blog is spot on.

    • Cartwheels says:

      That moment was being filmed in real time, so Kyle probably assummed the nanny had called and informed Taylor about her dropping Kennedy at Kyle’s house, but maybe the nanny hadn’t called Taylor just yet and that is why Taylor didn’t know.
      Bravo edited to make it look like Taylor didn’t even know where her daughter was.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Since when does Taylor’s mom live in Orange Co?
      I am calling BS. I am betting Taylor ditched the kid with the nanny and didn’t come back when she was suppose to, so the nanny said F this and left the kid with Kyle instead of calling CPS.

      • Catseye says:

        I remember reading on SH that she lives in Aliso Viejo (I think) with her 2nd husband in some tiny condo.
        I wonder why it is that Taylor whines about being broke and couldn’t pay someone like Bob Lorsch, so instead gave him counterfeit handbags, but CAN AFFORD a nanny and a large house for just herself and daughter.

    • Again she is trying to manipulate things to make it appear like leaving is HER idea. Fact of the matter is, she tried to quit mid-season because she didn’t like what was being exposed about her. She pursued legal action and Bravo held her to her contract. Now she is trying to make it look like she is putting her family first instead of getting her Azss CANNED!

      • catmom1 says:

        Of course she is, ala Jill Z (for whom I am very grateful for inspiring the creation of the original blog). From what I’ve read, looks like Taylor will be asked to leave as well. Although, as likeable as Taylor has been the past few episodes…..who knows???

  118. NorthEastLurker says:

    Hi all, been a while and I hope everyone is doing well! I’m just catching the re-run of BH and thought Adrienne was going to have a stroke when Brandi pulled out the e-mails from Bernie and handed them to Paul. The look on her face was one of someone being caught in a HUGE lie. Priceless. What a piece of work Adrienne has evolved into. Paul actually looked like he was taken by surprise and was trying to figure out how to react. Based on his reaction, he’s either an Oscar worthy actor or he really had no clue what was going on behind the curtian. The puppet master (Adrienne) is about to see the strings cut on her puppets as they realize she’s lying and double-talking to avoid taking responsibility for what she’s set in motion.

    • princesspindy says:

      Hi NEL,
      I will watch for that, it is just now starting!!!

      • NorthEastLurker says:

        Good evening, Your Majesty! Good to see you here and hope you’re doing well. Watch her face right when Brandi hands them to Paul. She looks like she’s trying to not panic. The look on her face if FEARt curiosity or disbelief. You can see her little gerbil brain spinning, trying to figure out how to put a stop to the situation but coming up empty. After Paul is reading them, there’s a shot where it looks like she’s reaching out in an attempt to take them away from Paul (probably so she can dismiss them as ‘fake’ and keep him from reading them). She looks like a rodent cornered by a cat.

  119. KTinCT says:

    I haven’t read the blog or the comments yet, but all I want is for Ken to say to all of the rest of the cast, “I can buy and sell every one of you”. Because he can.

  120. Well, that wasn’t worth staying up for…terrible grammar, I know. Gawd, I hate saying this, but taylor has a point. And Kyle runs away saying, I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings? Something Luke that. WTF? She didn’t mind refusing entry last year!

  122. VV says:

    It is possible Brandi had her lawyer contact Adrienne’s first to clarify what exactly that original letter demands were. It is also possible A lawyers clarified that and still made demands. It is possible once again Brandi had to have her lawyer send another letter to counter A’s letter. It is possible A didn’t want to back down from her original demands. It is also possible that Brandi brought up the cook issue with her attorney and her attorney once again contacted A’s. There could have been a lot of back and forth here running up a big tab (exactly what Adrienne and Paul wanted IMO)
    I can still here Adrienne saying…BIG FAT LAWSUIT.

    • princesspindy says:

      can you post the timeline real quick I just want to see it again, pretty please

    • nyc mama says:

      I wouid also imagine that there was time spent dealing with Bravo’s lawyers and figuring out how / if any of this airing on national tv would affect anything. This is a little more complicated than just a normal situation.since there is a national audience/exposure involved so I can see the lawyer bill mounting quickly.

      I wonder if part of Brandi’s settlement was agreeing to not show the letter in the end. Just a passing thought. IMO it doesn’t matter. Paul and Adrienne lied and tried to manipulate the story line starting last year. I could care less if I ever see the letter. It’s basically over in my mind.

    • nyc mama says:

      I am sure her lawyers also spent time confering iwth Bravo’s which would add to the cost so it wouldn’t surprise me if her bill was $10k. They were dealing with something that was going to air on national TV, not just neighborhood gossip and Adrienne has lawyers on retainer so Brandi had to secure a good attorney who knows entertainment, etc. as well which is pricey.

  123. catmom1 says:

    Just had an odd thought. I wonder if Brandi’s lawyer fees could be considered tax deductible as a business expense? It seems like as it was an expense incurred as a result of filming, it should be deductable.

    • princesspindy says:

      Maybe, ya know $10,000, at 5 to 700 dollars an hour is 15-20 hours and they don’t charge by the min, I think, I don’t know but most charge full hours, right? ….that is really not a whole lot of time… I think she should deduct, lol.
      Paul was a real jerk in this episode….he must be ashamed, at least I hope he is!

      • catmom1 says:

        My s in law is an atty. She told me some atty’s bill in 10 min increments, some in 15. That could start to get pretty pricey when you think about a quick 2 min phone call, or response to an email. With research involved, I’m sure it added up quick. Paul has been a jerk most of this season. I’m sure by now he is ashamed or embarrassed.

        • princesspindy says:

          thanks, that’s good to know

        • L.A. Chica says:

          That’s right, a two or ten minute call here and there adds up shockingly fast, plus they bill separate line items for staff time spent on a case.

        • Pghemtchick says:

          Who’d have thought mental health billing and attorneys were similar! Lol when I worked at the crisis unit that’s hot we billed people who called the helplines. It was the first7- 8 minutes (iirc) then at 15, we were able to bill another unit. All we needed was a name and SSN and poof we could look up your insurance and bill. Just a heads up to anyone calling helplines-be wary with the ssn and other billable identifiers or don’t be shocked when you see claim on the insurance. The sad part is no one was ever told they were gonna be billed. Kinda scary.
