Demand for a Retraction / Dance Moms / Revenge / The Walking Dead Episodes 9 and 10

Demand for Retraction – Don’t say I was Married to Asa from Shahs – It Hurts My Business – Gossip by NoMoreDrama

Wow.  Boston sent me a link to an article that implied that Asa from Shahs was – or used to be – married to a man named Shaahin Cheyene.  This is the article that talks about Asa Soltan Rahmati and her art and her filmmaker husband.  It also references another article in the LA Times that talks about the couple’s home renovation.  I found that one here.  It was from 2007 – but covers the couple’s four year journey to remodel their Venice Beach bungalow.  In 2012 the LA Times printed a retraction stating that the couple was mis-identified as being married – but they were never married.  It seems that once Asa appeared on Shahs of Sunset, the backlash through the American Iranian community was so strong that Shaahin needed to distance himself from her.  So much so that his lawyers have been asking that any articles referencing that the couple was ever married be retracted.  You can read the letter asking for the retraction here.  In the letter it states:

“Mr. xxxxx, apparently working on your behalf, published a piece online in the Lansing Journal entitled “TV gets Persian Reality Check in ‘Shahs of Sunset.’ In that piece Mr. Cheyene is described as having been married to Ms. Asa Soltan Rhamti(currently starring in said sHe is not now, nor has he ever been married to Ms. Rahamti. This is an outright falsehood and one which is causing Mr. Cheyene a serious measure of distress and potentially costing him business. He brought this to your attention in the aforementioned correspondence as well. In spite of that correspondence your company has taken no action and offered no response. While this may be a small issue to you the fact is that this particular show, according to Mr. Cheyene, is not being well received in the Iranian community. From my own experience, the Iranian community in Los Angeles is very intertwined and in the social circles in which Mr. Cheyene travels this incorrect association could very well damage his reputation and hurt his business interests. We believe this matter requires a modicum of cultural sensitivity and deference to Mr. Cheyene’s knowledge of his own community. Your perception of whether or not this is damaging is not relevant; what is relevant is that this is false, published, and causing legal injury to Mr. Cheyene for which your company may be liable.”

Wow.  You know it’s bad when your ex takes such strong measures to distance himself from you.  Is it worth it?

Dance Moms – You’ve been Unfriended – By: adelaidesmommy

Welcome back to Pittsburgh! The moms/kids arrive at Abby Lee Dance Company (ALDC) – including Christi and Chloe. Kelly hasn’t heard anything from Christi in a week. Christi apologizes to Abby Lee Miller (ALM), but ALM doesn’t speak back to her. Christi ignores her and walks into the dressing room. ALM is upset. Christi notices that Kelly isn’t excited to see her.

Time for pyramid. ALM is upset about losing to the Apples. Here’s how the pyramid breaks down (starting from the bottom, Chloe will not be on the pyramid):

  • Nia
  • Paige – got thrown under bus with duet
  • Kendall – solo didn’t make top ten
  • Mackenzie – did a good job in the group
  • Brooke – officially back on the team, her dancing was excellent, needs her to be more of a role model
  • Maddie – hasn’t had solo for weeks, but got first

The girls are attending In10sity dance in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Everyone is in the group dance – it’s contemporary and titled “Money is the route of all evil.” Although ALM misquotes the bible, Christi totally misses the reference and doesn’t understand why money is evil. The girls will be wearing green by wearing real money. Maddie gets a solo. Brooke gets a solo. The moms head upstairs while the girls stretch.

In the balcony, Christi says she feels like an outsider. Holly debriefs her on what happened during the last competition. Kelly asks Christi why she didn’t answer her phone calls/texts. Christi said she didn’t get her texts and missed her call and she didn’t call back because she was having a bad week. She leaves and Kelly is pissed and thinks it’s an excuse. Christi walks back in and tells Christi her feelings were hurt because she didn’t call. Kelly swears she called several times. It goes back and forth for a bit.

Christi asks about Melissa’s relationship with ALM – saying she noticed it’s improved. Melissa tries to make some excuse and Kelly interjects and says it’s because Sophia decided to quit, so ALM is stuck with Maddie. Melissa agrees to some extent. Downstairs, ALM refers to Chloe as “girl” or “that girl”. She refuses to use her name until Chloe makes her remember it. Obviously, this upsets Chloe and she cries to her mom. Chloe says she doesn’t feel like a person. Christi tells her to not get upset and give ALM the power.

Melissa asks Kelly to help her in the closet. Melissa tries to find out what’s going on between Kelly and Christi. Kelly fills her in. Melissa tells Kelly that she did all she could and it’s time to move on.

Brooke’s lyrical solo is called “Care Less.” ALM gives her a pep talk about not being mediocre – and asks her to care more. She is trying to motivate Brooke. Nia tells Paige she is going to ask ALM if they can do the duet. After she asks, ALM is impressed and thinks Nia is very mature. She tells her it’s exactly what she wanted to see from her. She tells Nia that she will think about it – but that she’s not saying no.

Melissa and Christi go out for drinks. Why am I not surprised? Melissa is so two-faced. First, she pulls Kelly aside and says Christi needs to get over it. Now, she is gossiping about Kelly to Christi. UGH! She tells Christi that Kelly is stubborn. Christi thanks Melissa for reaching out to her.

Maddie is doing a lyrical solo called “You don’t know me.” Seriously, a slow dance again? ALM calls Paige and Nia together to go over the duet. Because they learned it two weeks ago, she says it should look twice as good as the solo routines that Maddie and Brooke just learned. After they dance, ALM calls down Holly and Kelly. ALM agrees to let them do the duet. She tells the moms that she wants to move forward and their behavior last week would not be tolerated. The moms/kids are happy.

In the balcony, Jill asks Christi about the situation with Kelly. Christi says she’s upset because when Kelly was kicked out, she called her every day, but Kelly didn’t do that for her. In TH, Christi said all the moms except Kelly called her. What? She admitted earlier that Kelly did call once. I’m so confused. Christi starts to cry. She doesn’t think anyone missed her and Chloe. Ironic as Kelly was the only one who said she missed them last week.

During group rehearsal, ALM refers to Chloe as blondie. Christi gets upset and tells ALM that her daughter has a name. ALM says “so do you and it starts with a b.”

At the competition, ALM reminds the kids that dance is part of the culture in Florida. Melissa gossips with Kelly about Christi. She says she did call Christi, but Christi never called her back. Melissa said that Christi doesn’t answer her calls either. She tells Kelly that she didn’t do anything wrong. At this point, I wish my TV was an Etch-a-Sketch and I could shake Melissa off of it. I’m hoping Christi and Kelly catch on and become unified against her.

Maddie’s solo is up first. ALM thinks it will be very different than all the others she’s done. Fail. To me, it looked identical to everything she’s done. ALM led us to think it would be dark and mysterious…. I didn’t get that. It was the usual Maddie dance with all the same moves, but she frowned a lot. However, she danced it beautifully. ALM said technically – it was superb.

Brooke is next. ALM says she’s nailing the routine – and it’s like the old Brooke is back. I really enjoyed watching Brooke. It’s been so long since we’ve seen her do a solo and she is obviously more advanced than any other girl on the team.

Next, Paige and Nia perform the duet. It’s very cute – and finally, we get to see an upbeat and fun number. I smiled the entire dance. In TH, ALM says there were things they could have done better, but that’s not what the piece was about. It was musical theater – and they did it perfectly. She is very happy with the duet.

In the dressing room, ALM compliments everyone and gives hugs all around. It’s so nice to see this for a change. The moms are pleased. ALM gives a little talk to Nia about what happened last week and why she pulled the duet. It’s her way of telling Nia it wasn’t her fault. ALM confuses me – she’s horrible one week and then awesome the next.

Finally – the group routine. Chloe is nervous because it’s been two weeks since she’s been on stage. I LOVE the costumes. I’m not a fan of the dollar bills – but the sparkling green is a nice change and channels the Emerald City. ALM is happy because it’s different than what they’ve seen today.

Time for awards. First up is Elite Junior Duo/Trios. Nia and Paige receive 4th place. ALM thinks they were lucky to make the top five. For Teen Solo, Brooke gets 5th place. ALM says although she didn’t get 1st, Brooke danced well and showed her she cares. I think her category must be tough as Brooke’s dance was amazing. For Elite Junior Solo, Maddie gets 1st place. For Elite Junior Small Groups, the girls get 1st place. ALM is ecstatic – she give congrats all around in the dressing room and leaves.

Christi and Kelly decide to talk in private. The other moms listen through the door. It’s back and forth about Kelly and the calls. Christi said she should have driven to Christi’s house if she wasn’t answering. Then – they start saying “f… you” to each other. Super classy, ladies. It ends without a resolution.

That’s it, folks! Next week, Broadway Baby passes away, we cross paths with the Black Patsy, and Melissa dedicates Maddie’s solo to the dog – to spite the other moms. 

(Dance Moms Miami Lucas was at this competition and was a runner up to Maddie –  he had a small cameo but we didn’t see him dance 😦  NMD)

Revenge “Sacrifice” by SugarMagnolia

“Sacrifice, by its strictest definition takes something for the appeasement of a higher power. An abiding devotion to a cause that cannot be satisfied by a simple promise. Because an oath, no matter how solemn, asks nothing in return. While true sacrifice demands unspeakable loss.”

Setting the scene–deep underwater in the Atlantic, somewhere between Montauk and Nantucket, we see the rescue dive team swimming around the remains of the Amanda. I must warn all of my fellow revenge fans that this is an emotional episode. We have been waiting for this since fall, and now we finally find out what happens. *self disclosure–I have fallen for the suspension of disbelief on this show and have gotten quite attached to its characters. I hope you are with me on this! I cried some real tears.*

Below deck, Jack and Fauxmanda are enjoying their honeymoon. Romance abounds, and they decide to take it above deck where it is cooler. As they go up, we see Felon Ryan is still hiding, ready to make his next move.

The Pool House

The Graysons are still in the midst of hiding the demise of Helen. Her driver is getting impatient in the driveway and some action must be taken. The Queen, as always, has a plan. The carpet is unrolled long enough for Victoria to snatch Helen’s signature scarf and sunglasses, along with her phone, and enter her waiting car. Problem solved ala Grayson. “The bitch had it coming.”

Grayson Manor-Breakfast

All of the evidence has been disposed of and the Queen has called back the staff. Daniel is not quite as seasoned in the murder business as his parents, and is finding the normality very odd. But, it’s business as usual for Conrad and Victoria. Now that he knows about the Inititave, he needs to shoulder some of the responsibility. And, the Queen has a Labor Day party to plan. Pinning Helen’s murder on Fauxmanda is the soup du jour, regardless of the fact that she is Charlottes sister. Get over it Daniel, you are a Grayson, and Grayson’s don’t like to get their hands dirty. Because of her theft of Emily’s laptop, and the compelling video, they are pretty certain that Faux has been behind all of the revengenda. The Queen is going to feed her to the Ininiatave, period. She reveals to Daniel that there is live video feed in his office (which we know is in the clock) and is going to use that to her advantage. Meet me in my car. Enter Honey Boo Boo, aka Ashley, who has been summoned by Conrad. She is curious what pressing matters require her PR/Fixer skills so early. Conrad has decided to announce his Gubernatorial candidacy at the Queens party that very evening. Ashley strongly advises against this choice, especially since she witnessed Fauxmanda blackmailing him with the laptop. She isn’t privvy to why, but she knows something is rotten in Denmark. In a nutshell, he tells her to serve her purpose and do her job.

Stowaway

Nolan is on tablet with Emily and Aiden, in an “unhackable” meeting room. Nolan always gets the best lines; he asks Aiden where he is. “What’s your 20 Mr. Bean.” The discussion, as usual, is centering around the Graysons and the Initiative. Then Padma gets thrown into the mix. Nolan does not want her involved or harmed, and still trusts her. *I don’t* She’s “off limits”. Emily convinces him that Aiden is the best person to counsel her if she is, in fact, being blackmailed by the Iniitiative. Emily has to end the conversation as Honey Boo Boo is at the cottage door. (IMHO, Ashley is pretty lucky to be alive. She stole a 4th degree black belts boyfriend. Emily could mop up the cottage with her but does not. Girl, do not darken MY doorstep!). Ems is cordial to Ashley, but definitely gets the cold shoulder. As she listens to HBB, she finally learns about her missing laptop. She does her best to hide her emotions, scoots Ashley out, then runs to her hiding spot. Infinity box is there, the laptop is not. “Amanda, what did you do….?” Trouble in Revenge City.

Aft Deck on the Amanda

The honeymooners are waking up with lots of love and smiles. They have been anchored during the night. Faux is going to make breakfast while Jack gets the sails going. He finds a pack of cigarettes and a lighter, and is wondering who has been smoking on the boat. He begins to head down the galley, and he finds his bride at gunpoint with the Felon Ryan.

commercial break

Jack is trying to get the felon to put down his gun. However, he is not, due to his recent experience with the Grayson’s. They convince him to get Conrad on the phone to sort out the mess. No one is getting a signal, but Felon is going to try his cell. He probably shouldn’t have cut the ship-to-shore line. Sailing 101. Faux, knowing the revegenda and equipped with juvie experience, knows that he is going to kill them unless they kill him first. This is not her first time at the rodeo, but it is Jack’s. Faux is as cool as a cucumber while Jack convinces the Felon that if they get closer to shore, he will get cell service. Felon decides to sail while Jack is locked up and he has Faux at the end of the barrel of his gun.

Stowaway

Charlotte is sitting for baby Carl, uploading wedding pictures, when Emily stops by. In one of the photos, Emily’s keen eye sees the Felon in one of the windows and realizes that Jack and Faux are in trouble. She snaps a photo and takes it to Nolan. He does his computer magic, finds the Felon. “We need a boat.” And they are off to look for our favorite newlyweds.

Grayson Global

Daniel has embraced the deception that defines his family, brought his assistant biscotti, and is faking Helen’s no-show to breakfast. The Queen enters, does her best Meryl Streep, and Daniel is doing his best performance ever. All for the Iniatives camera in the clock. Helen has been missing for over 8 hours now and they must keep those Grayson hands clean. For the first time, Mother and Son are on the same page.

The Stowaway

Enter Padma. She is looking for Nolan, who is already on a speedboat with Emily. But Aiden is there. He hands her his phone, with Nolan on the line, warning/counseling her on how to proceed. Trust Aiden, because his sister was taken by the same people who have her father. * For the record, I still don’t trust Padma.*

Grayson Manor

The Felon calls Conrad, and is informed that Faux is the one holding the cards, aka the incriminating laptop. Happy Wife, Happy Life. “That’s because the wife is the source of the issue, leaving the husband blissfully ignorant.” Connie fills the Felon in on “the laptop.” He compels Faux to retrieve it, but she doesn’t. Instead, she pulls out her glock, which Felon has emptied of bullets. Foiled again. She pretends that she is Emily and tells Felon about her revenge plans. Jack is still below deck and finds Declans laptop. He heard every word she said. Faux is a good liar and convinced the Felon that the laptop is still in Montauk. Meanwhile, Jack just got online and Nolan has found them. *I must say, the boat scenes were a little campy “Charlies Angel’s” style.*

The Stowaway

Char is still watching baby Carl, and the Queen arrives. Char is now a Clarke, no longer a Grayson by name, but the Queen convinces her to show up to the Labor Day party for Conrad’s gubernatorial announcement. One more publicity stunt. As soon as her daughter turns her back, she dumps Helen’s scarf, sunglasses, and phone under Faux’s bed. She never loses focus and still plans to set up Faux for the most recent murder.

Nolcorp

Aiden and Padma. He is telling her about his sister’s abduction and trying to help her with her father. *still don’t believe it!* He hands her her cellphone and asks her to find Helen. Neither of them know she is wrapped in carpet sinking to the bottom of the Atlantic. She makes a call to the deceased, telling her she will deliver the Carrion program in it’s completion once she knows her father is still alive.

The Amanda

Jack and Faux are tricking the Felon. For a criminal, he sure falls for lies easily. Nate is below deck looking for the laptop while Jack and Faux “pretend fight” and set up the escape boat. She reveals the laptop and waits for Jacks’s signal. He says “GO”, and she locks the Felon below. Nate starts shooting the locks and lands a bullet in Jack. Faux puts him in the escape boat and sets him out to sail for safety. His heart is breaking because she lets him go to save him. Faux is ready to fight the great fight. For him. For Carl. For Emily. It’s come to a head, and the plan must be followed through. It’s a proverbial shootout, and only the strong will survive. Faux wakes up with a head wound, and finds her next plan. She cracks a pipe to start filling the boat with water which will eventually sink it. Emily and Nolan are watching and racing to get to her.

Grayson Manor

Back and forth between the Queen and King. Big Labor Day party, and Conrad is announcing his bid for governor. Enter Mr. Trask–the newest representation for the Initiiave. He’s looking for Helen. This is where things get tricky. The Queen tries to say that she traded evidence for Daniel’s safety, but Trask knows that Helen would not negotiate.They put Fauxmanda on the chopping block once again–the laptop, the videos….Everything. The Queen excuses Mr. Trask by telling him to get the hell out of her house.

The Speedboat

Emily and Nolan have located Jack floating on the Atlantic. They pull him to safety. However, Emily won’t leave Faux, and she gets off the speedboat and into the temp boat to go find her. *this is where I get teary*. Ems ensures that Nolan has the balls to get Jack to a hospital, and goes into the dark night to find her twin.

Back at the Stowaway, Trask is on the hunt for Helen. He finds her scarf and phone under Faux’s bed, listens to the last message from Padma, and arranges for “delivery”. Helen has been compromised. Aiden and Padma are attempting to get proof that her father is alive, and Trask points her to the last delivery she received at Nolcorp. In that box is a finger–Trask encourages her to print it for proof, but Aiden opened the box and is shielding her from the gruesome reality. This is the part that brings tears….*i have 3 children, and a brown belt in karate. I would take no prisoners when it comes to the safety of my husband and littles. I would kick the shinola out of anyone who attempted to put them in danger. Martial arts are not about violence, but self-defense. I would honor my sensei. But still, knock he/she into next Tuesday to keep my family safe.*

On the boat, here comes Emily. A big fight ensues. As Emily and Felon are rolling around below deck, she shouts to Faux to find Felon’s gun. He has Emily’s gun in his hand and shoots the propane. Faux shoots him from above deck and they make their escape. Gas is leaking and Felon has one last word in his aresenal–a lighter. Amanda wants her necklaces that Emily gave her years ago in juvie–they are on the edge of the boat. Emily screams “NO AMANDA!” But, it’s too late. The boat has exploded. Emily found Faux after the explosion, and she was fatally injured. The two of them swimming in the Atlantic, ala Titanic, was heartbreaking. Faux made Emily promise to take care of her family, then passed away. The first tears and sobs from Ms. Thorne came right after. She grieved and then let Faux slip into the night and ocean. After several more tears, hanging onto a raft, she shot an emergency shot into the air to allow Nolan to find her. She has lost soooo much. I hope the Revenge is worth it. Loss.

“Sacrifice demands the surrender of things we cherish above all else. Out of all of the agony, a new resolution can be born. An undying devotion to a cause greater than one’s self, and a moral duty too see the journey through to it’s absolute completion.”

The Walking Dead Episode 9:  The Suicide King by BlueSkyForever

Daryl just can’t leave Woodbury without talking to his brother, so he gets caught. The crowd listens to the Gov tell them that Merle is a traitor. The Gov has arranged for Daryl & Merle to fight until one of them dies. Andrea tries to stop the fight to no avail. The Governor pits brother against brother, in a gladiator style fight with walkers. These walkers still have their teeth, unlike previous exhibition fights Merle has done. Merle starts by kicking Daryl to the ground, then while wrestling and strangling each other, Merle tells Daryl “follow my lead brother.” So they stand up, backs against each other, to fight the walkers. It’s looking bad for the brothers, until Maggie & Rick start firing. Rick throws a smoke bomb. Now the brothers have a chance to make a run for it. Why doesn’t Andrea join them?  We see a smile on the Governor’s face as he realizes Rick will fight hard to save his friend.  And we know how much the Gov likes a good fight, especially when he gets a kill shot.

As they run to find Rick, Daryl grabs a cross bow from one of the Woodbury fighters. They catch up with Maggie & Rick. Rick objects to Merle being with them, but realizes he might be useful escaping the town. After all, no one can kill walkers as well as Merle. As they run from the town, a walker manages to get thru the torn metal barrier into the town. We see Michonne and Glen waiting by a car on the road.  When they see Merle, they want to kill him. Merle is a disgusting pos, he almost killed both Glen & Michonne. As they argue about Merle, it’s obvious that he will not be allowed to join Rick’s group.

Back at the prison, Hershel stitches up one of Tyreese’s people. They are surprised but happy to see Rick’s baby. Tyreese wants to stay at the prison, but Hershel tells him it’s not up to him. When Rick gets back he will tell them if they can stay.

In the forest, a discussion about what to do with Merle begins. Rick, Maggie & Glen don’t want him, they think he’s too dangerous. Daryl asks them if they trust Michonne more than Merle. When Daryl realizes Merle is not wanted, he chooses to go with his brother. Rick tries to persuade Daryl to stay with them. Daryl goes to his brother & they walk off into the woods. Merle has a smirk on his face. Rick tells Michonne they will patch up her wounds, but then she has to go. As usual, Michonne’s face is inscrutable.

Back at the prison, Tyreese’s group is going about burying their fallen member Donna. One guy wants to kill off the small group in the prison. Tyreese is horrified, does he want to kill the baby too? After Beth and Alex bring them shovels, Tyreese lets his group know they will not be overtaking the prison.

Back on the road, a truck blocks the way. Glenn freaks out killing a walker that lunges out of the truck. He is upset that Rick didn’t kill the Gov. Maggie was sexually assaulted by the Gov, and Glen who can barely walk is mad that he can’t avenge Maggie. Now Daryl, one of their best fighters, is gone. Glen is doubting Rick’s ability to lead the group.

Meanwhile back in Woodbury people are trying to leave. They no longer think Woodbury is safe. Andrea tries to calm them down, but the Gov’s bullies don’t make it easy. Screams come from a block away, as walkers attack some town people. Andrea runs to kill the walkers as they feed on their victim. Finally the Gov makes an appearance, killing the person attacked by the walkers with a shot to the head. Back in house, Andrea tells him she’s shocked that the Gov shot the victim without saying a word to the people. Andrea doesn’t know anything about what the Gov allowed Merle to do to Maggie and Glen. The Gov just tells her that Rick’s group attacked Woodbury when Rick came to get them back. He blames Rick for all the people killed in Woodbury. Milton comes to tell the Gov that the town people are really upset. He wants the Gov to talk to them, but the Gov refuses. Andrea addresses the crowd, calming the people down. She’s becoming a leader.

Carol & Carl Jr. are happy to see Rick return, but Carol is sad that Daryl chose to go with Merle. Hershel tells Rick he has a new problem to handle. Before Rick talks to Tyreese, he wants to hold his baby daughter. Carol and Beth talk about Daryl, how his loss is a big one. Carol tells Beth Daryl has his own code, which dictated that he has to stay with his brother. The baby makes Rick’s group bond over keeping her and themselves alive. They can’t leave the prison it would be too hard with the baby. Hershel thanks Glen for saving Maggie, telling him he is like his own son. Hershel goes to talk to Maggie. He sees that Maggie and Glen are not feeling the love lately. He tries to help Maggie, who is still disturbed by the Gov’s attack on her. It will take Maggie some time to get over that. Although she wasn’t raped, the Gov forced her to strip, then was about to rape her when he forced her onto a table. He stopped, as Maggie listened to Merle beating Glen in the next room. It was a violent confrontation that both Maggie & Glen will need some time to get over.

Hershel is nursing Michonne. He says she has a concussion, needs rest. Then Rick goes to meet Tyreese and the other 3 people in his group. They want to stay, help out Rick’s group any way they can. Hershel asks Rick to let them stay. Rick says he can’t be responsible for any more people. Then he sees Lori, and really flips out. He’s talking to Lori, asking her “why are you here” and “just get out.” Everyone realizes Rick is deranged. Tyreese thinks Rick is telling him to leave, so he & his group exit. In the next episode, we will see more of Rick interacting with Lori’s specter.

___________

The Walking Dead Episode 10:  Home by BlueSkyForever

Rick is using binoculars to scan the perimeter. He sees Lori again, in the same long white dress as before. He goes out to where she is, at her grave. Just as he gets to her, she is gone. He looks for her then sees her outside the prison fence. Quickly he unlocks the gates to go out to her. Michonne is there to close the gate as he exits. Rick goes to a small footbridge, as Lori reaches out her hands to embrace his face. He is lost in his vision.

Back in Woodbury, the Gov’s toughs are watching from on top of the wall made out of old army  trucks, metal sheets and huge tires. The Gov goes to Andrea’s apartment to tell her she gave a good speech. She asks about the prison. The Gov lies and says there will be no retaliation. Andrea wants to go to the prison. The Gov tells her she should stay in Woodbury and lead the town. Is the Gov manipulating her to stay in Woodbury while he goes on about his nasty business? Yes.

Merle and Daryl are in the woods, on their own now. Merle tells Daryl that the Gov will kill everyone in the prison.

Glen is trying to figure out how to make the prison safer. The front is breached & the walkers are able to get in. They cannot get to the part of the prison secured by Rick’s group, but they can’t get out that way either. So now they are trapped, walkers at the front of the prison and the Gov coming to attack them from their side where the fence and yard are. Glen wants to go back to the town and kill the Gov. He is over ruled by the others. Hershel wants to leave, but Glen says the baby will cry and attract walkers. So for now they decide to make a stand in the prison. With Rick gone crazy, no one is watching outside.

Andrea is looking for the Gov. Milton won’t tell her where he’s gone. The guards on the wall won’t tell her. Milton tells her the Gov is out on a run, for supplies maybe. We’ll see about that.

Hershel is worried about the coming attack. Glen decides to take a truck to see what is going on outside the prison fence. He checks on Maggie, but she doesn’t want to talk to him. Other than to describe the Gov’s attack on her in nasty detail. Glen doesn’t know how to talk to her about it. Maggie won’t let Glen touch her. Trouble in paradise.

Carol and Alec are fortifying the prison defenses. He tells her why he’s in prison – for robbing a store with a toy gun. Carol shows him how to load a hand gun.

The boyscouts Merle & Daryl are walking through the woods. Daryl hears a baby. They see a group under attack on a bridge, fighting off walkers. Daryl goes to help them, Merle wants to just ignore them & keep going. Daryl starts killing walkers and saving people, just in the knick of time. The woman with the baby is trapped in her vehicle. No worries, Daryl pulls out a walker from the back and slams the cargo door on its head. They just keep thinking of more ingenious ways to off a walker don’t they. This group doesn’t speak English. Merle pulls his gun on the leader, he’s looking for supplies in the car with the baby. Daryl aims his crossbow at Merle, tells him to get out of the vehicle, and tells the group to leave. Daryl has seen Merle at his worst, and now wants to go back to his real friends, Rick’s group. Merle is arguing with Daryl as they walk back through the woods. It’s killing Merle that Daryl likes Rick more than him. Merle reminds him that they were planning on robbing Rick’s camp back in Atlanta, before Merle got handcuffed to the pipe on the rooftop. A lot has happened to Daryl since then, he’s become a better person after getting away form his pos brother. Then Merle rips Daryl’s shirt, sees the scars on his back. At that moment he realizes that their father beat Daryl too. Merle left, not protecting Daryl from their father. Merle says he can’t go to the prison but Daryl doesn’t want to hear it. Rather than stay alone, Merle runs after Daryl.

Things are not going well back at the prison. Hershel hobbles on his crutches after Glen. He wants to make sure Glen isn’t going back to Woodbury by himself. Hershel reasons with Glen, telling him he trusts him with Maggie’s life. Glen says with Rick in crazy town, now he’s in charge. Glen drives off in a truck. Meanwhile Rick is still wondering around outside the prison. Beth is trying to get her sister Maggie to help her feed the baby. Maybe it will help dull Maggie’s pain.

Rick hears shouting, it’s Hershel from inside the fence yelling at him. Rick wonders over to see what he wants. Hershel tells Rick that Glenn can’t fill his boots, they need him back. Hershel wants to know what Rick is doing. Rick is “doing stuff.” Like chasing Lori’s specter? Rick tells Hershel about seeing Lori. Rick says he knows it’s not really her, but it must mean something. He tells Hershel he heard Lori & Shane on the telephone, in the prison….Rick knows it doesn’t make sense. Hershel asks him to come back inside, get some rest. But Rick can’t come back inside the fence just yet. Michonne is watching with a worried look. Carol and the last survivor from the prison are standing outside, watching the gate. Alec tells her about his brother, then gets hit by a bullet. The Gov is standing outside the prison as the attack begins.

Bullets are flying everywhere. One of the Gov’s men has made it to a watch tower. Rick, Michonne, Carol and Hershel are pinned down. The Gov is enjoying himself immensely. Maggie comes running with guns, but they are unable to make headway against the attackers. An engine roars, here comes a big van crashing through the gate. The back door opens, walkers come tumbling out. Nice surprise, now they have to battle them too. Hershel is in danger he doesn’t have much of a chance if the walkers get to him. Uh oh, Rick is out of ammo and the walkers have him against the fence. Too late, Glen comes back in his truck as the Gov and his men make a fast get away. As Rick battles walkers at the fence, an arrow pierces one of them in the head. Daryl to the rescue! Merle is doing his best to fight off the walkers too. So Daryl & Merle save Rick. Looks like Rick is realizing he needs more people to help him in his battle with the evil Gov. Go to AMC.com to see coming attractions for the next episode.

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning. It’s hump day. Don’t be cheeky. Is Lisa V in here? 🙂 Have a great day everyone.

  2. HuskerHuny says:

    A foot of snow is on it’s way here in Huskerland and more to the south. This calls for a pot of ham and bean soup. The great thing about a large snowfall this time of year is that it melts much more quickly then it would in December. C’mon spring! Hope everyone else is enjoying their day.

    • Powell says:

      A foot? Yikes!! Yes come on Spring. 🙂

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Yep. 4-10 inches here. And will start by 6 or midnight. I love the exact science of weather. Ham and beans. And cornbread!

      • HuskerHuny says:

        Just saw the latest map from the weather service and they have downsized us to just a little over 6 inches. That I can handle. But more on the way on Monday. More snow to the south of us though, so look out Kansas Girl. Are you a Jayhawk or Wildcat? Or maybe even a Shocker?

  3. VV says:

    This is what Dina tweeted in ref to Milania hair care product line.

  4. Powell says:

    Speaking of Lisa. I was looking at Brandi’s tweets & there seems to be a rumor that Lisa isn’t coming back next season. Brandi tweeted Lisa that is,Lisa’s not coming back she’s not coming back. Lisa said its a rumor.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Personally, I think that is all just a bunch of BS and was designed to create momentum from their large fan base so Bravo will waive more dollars at Lisa and perhaps Brandi.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I saw that Brandi tweeted to Lisa that if she isn’t coming back neither will Brandi…Brandi then said she needed the money so Lisa better come back. I love when people try to negotiate a contract on twitter!!!

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          It should shock me by now the things people do or try to do on twitter but I guess “Drinking and Tweeting” is a reality.

        • melthehound says:

          I doubt she’s doing any negotiating. I heard the interview with Howard Stern yesterday (linked in yesterday’s blog comments), she said she got $18k for the first season as a ‘friend’, $137k this season. She eluded to the idea that the pay scale for the show is somewhat fixed. Lips got $250k (third season) for this season says Brandi. She isn’t going to leave the show (my opinion) because it’s a ‘platform’ to push the goods. Books, booze, shoes, dresses, etc.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Jeff-I was making a joke about her negotiating her contract on twitter…but Im sure her tweet was a ploy of some sort. Every move these HW’s make are calculated and planned…right down to their tweets.

            • melthehound says:

              That’s why I don’t mess around with them outside of the show actual show and these blogs. Many people here care a lot more about what they say and do far more than I do though.. I’ll say however that your dislike for Brandi sometimes makes me question the joke.

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                WOW…my dislike for Brandi is really not so personal to me but I can see that it is personal to some. I don’t know Brandi and I don’t care about Brandi-I come here to chat and snark-just like everyone else. I didn’t know that not liking a HW was such a to-do. I never took it personally when someone didn’t like a HW that I did. People joke and question the motives of every HW but when it comes to Brandi its not funny? The other day Kyle tweeted a pic of her and Bethenny and people questioned her motives-I just happened to question the motive of the most loved HW is Bravo history.

                • TexasTart says:

                  JNNTJ – We housewives fans ALL have housewives we don’t like! That’s perfectly normal and acceptable here. I think your dislike of Brandi is noteworthy because for some reason you have a tendency to get aggressive with other posters in scenarios with RHOBH and specifically Brandi are involved. Just my observation.

                  • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                    TT- Thank you for your honesty. I post my opinion and respond to comments-I don’t think its aggressive and I certainly do not mean to come off that way. However-if I changed Brandi’s name to Kyle or Adrienne-would that still be aggressive? I don’t think so. It seems like a battle b/c I disagree with the masses. If I wrote the same thing about Kyle that I do about Brandi-it wouldn’t even be a discussion. I don’t like her…big whoop-I read comments all day about the rest of the HW’s that are very similar to what I say about Brandi but they are agreed with so there is no big discussion about it. I have been commenting on this blog for a long time and only this BH season have I gotten into disagreements with others. I don’t think its that big of a deal, if others do then we can stop commenting to each other. I don’t take any of this personally because we are talking about women who really do not exist in our worlds. It’s not personal to me….until it is.

                    • L.A. Chica says:

                      Actually, Jill, I thought your reaction to what Jeff said sounded like you took it VERY personally. It hit me as being an over (and overly defensive) reaction.

                      I like you a lot and enjoy reading yours and other people’s opinions even if I disagree with some of them. And I get that some of us like certain HWs and dislike others. But what I have a hard time understanding is when something is posted that is less an opinion and more a denial of objective reality, all apparently based on personal bias.

                      I get what Jeff (MTH) said about your joke possibly not being a joke. On the other hand, it’s often hard to read dry humor (I think my own often gets lost) without the aid of emoticons and other modifiers. But yeah, you have some very strong opinions – not that there’s anything wrong with that 😉 – so when humor is uses it can sometimes get lost. 🙂

                    • TexasTart says:

                      Thanks for your reply, JNNTJ

                  • rabblerouser2010R says:

                    I don’t see Jill as being aggressive but I guess somethings are all about perspective.

                    In my experience when people have an minority opinion their posts tend to stick out a bit more and they tend to get more activity . Sometimes people strongly state their position so that it covers all of the counter posts instead of individual replies…and sometimes a bunch of individual replies can make a person look like they are being defensive. But that being said, sometimes when people have a minority opinion and it gets a lot response from the board, it can be overwhelming and sometimes it feels like a personal attack.

                    But really, there is no reason for anyone to get upset over this HW crap. At the end of the day, none of these folks pay our bills or are giving us one of their kidney’s for a transplant. But when one of us asks the board for some help and encouragement or some prayer….we all come together.

                • iceNfire says:

                  I agree – Idk or care about these HW’s but find posting here a great stress relief. I’m sure as hell not gonna be snarky with my family just because I may be having an off day

                • afternoon all…tired tired tired…did a 9 hr shift that I was not expecting to do…got home round midnite and was beat…have a ragin headache today..but..back to the grind for 4 hrs only today…Sunday I will be on my own… damn..they dont waste time there…. hope it’s slow..lol

                  okay with regards to comments about Brandi…. I don’t particularly care for her… I think she has a big mouth..lacks couth..and loose lips still sink ships..on that note… maybe it depends on the frame of mind when you read jills comments, but I have never taken her comments as being aggressive… jmho mind you…I appreciate that we all can come here and not have to share the lub for each of these characters..I mean..some of the comments I read about Adrienne have been shall I say less than tasteful…so to each their own…plug away kids… off to take a hot shower and head to the HOTEL MOTEL…. ear worm song for you this HUMP DAY….

                  hugs and peace
                  diva

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  I try not to get bitchy about things, but I do sometimes (collective gasp on the board…”No lainey, say it aint’ so!!!”). Not so much about the housewives but when anyone starts getting all “scoldy” or “judgy”…I feel my bitch side emerging. I try to keep her in her hole; and usually I can push her (the bloggy bitch) back in…but sometimes, she comes out and oh well….. so far, it’s nothing that people can’t handle or laugh off or ignore. 🙂

                  • L.A. Chica says:

                    I apologize if I’m one of those who do that. 😳

                    • LaineyLainey says:

                      Oh my gosh…no L.A. Chica!!!! Unless you’re using other names…haha!! No just kidding.; If you think about it…it is I who infers something and it is I who chooses to let the bitch out. Usually, what I perceived or inferred as scoldiness isn’t even directed at me. I have an instinct to protect others…nobody asks me to…everyone can handle themselves quite handily…but some old habits are hard to break. This is not an excuse but there is a hormonal factor usually at play when I get my feathers ruffled. I’m not usually about that at all. I Just don’t want to claim complete innocence. I understand when some of us get our hackles up…cause it happens to me, too. As Jill was saying; bottom line, I don’t care about the HWs, not really. But I do care about all of you!!! ❤ (awwwww!)

                    • L.A. Chica says:

                      Thanks, L2! I care about you, too. ❤

                • melthehound says:

                  Jill, I hope you didn’t take that as a personal attack.. If you did, I am sorry for coming across that way.

                  • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                    NO ONE QUESTIONS MY JOKES JEFF….NO ONE!!! HAHAHA…my joke was full of snark and sarcasm…I’m sure you questioned it. If someone said the same thing about-let’s say Teresa, and I knew they didn’t like her I would question the joke as well…I get it. Don’t be sorry-no need my friend.

                    • melthehound says:

                      I just don’t want any hard feelings between us 🙂 It’s funny that we can completely agree on one of these characters but completely disagree on another. That’s good though. Shows we look at them as individuals..

                    • L.A. Chica says:

                      Well, Hell’s Bells, there you go making nice with each other while I was still processing. That’ll teach me to mind my own business!

                      Group hug?

                    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                      Chica-I had to post down here cause its too skinny up there.
                      My “relationship” with Jeff is not the same as my “relationships” with everyone else. I can write what I want to him and I know how he will read it. If we get mixed up-we settle it quick and move on. I am for sure more personally affected with what Jeff writes about me and to me b/c we have been chatting for a while here and I respect him. That’s why I added to my comment to TT that its not personal until it is.
                      I dont take the HW discussions personally-I never have and never will. I do not dislike anyone here b/c of their opinion of a HW-I dont care if they hate the one I love and if they want to call the one I love a liar or a bitch or whatever-its fine with me. I expect the same in turn.

                    • L.A. Chica says:

                      Ok, I understand, Jill – and I will butt out accordingly. 😉

                      Btw, speaking of tone getting lost in these posts, my post directly above (ending with a request for a group hug) was intended to be playfully self-admonishing. Reading it again I can see how that might not come across.

                      Anyway, yes, this place is all for fun and stress reduction and ultimately mutual support. 🙂

                    • melthehound says:

                      Jill, Exactly 🙂

                      Chica, Sometimes I’m a little slow on the uptake when it comes to snark and jokes online. It’s all good until someone says it isn’t.

          • realhousewifeva says:

            I’m actually surprised that Brandi only makes $137,000 and the others all make the same $250,000…We’ve heard Nene supposedly makes close to a million and Teresa something like $600,000 (if these reports are true) I wonder why someone with Lisa’s popularity would make the same amount as Taylor or Kim. Maybe the BH ladies just don’t try to negotiate as much since most of them don’t need the money and the ones that do aren’t popular enough to demand more.

            • melthehound says:

              I guess with her second season as a full timer, Brandi would be due for a bump. I really hope they aren’t paying NeNe a million (though good for her if they are) for what appears to be a phone it in season for her. As for Teresa, she’s an original and she does bring a lot to the show (good and/or bad) and she is ratings gold. It may actually go by franchise. I read somewhere that Joey Marco gets $68k. Either way, it shows that these shows are just jobs for these women and like any other, they come with periodic evaluations or re evaluations. These pay grades may also be part of their original contracts. I’m just speculating here though.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        the BS Radar is going…whaw,whaw, whaw, whaw!!

      • $25,000 says:

        That wouldn’t surprise me a bit. There are always murmerings of this type at this point in the season of every franchise. I can’t imagine that Lisa wouldn’t come back. Regardless how you feel about the Vanderpump Rules show, or what the ratings are, I am sure it has brought customers in to SUR and probably Villa Blanca as well.

    • lizzle says:

      When was this? I don’t see it on her timeline. If it is far back, what is the date?

  5. jezzibel says:

    I don’t blame Asa’s ex for not wanting his name associated with her at all, given how she’s and Reza have acted this season.

  6. Powell says:

    Everyone at the Milania party does have shiney hair. 🙂

  7. Powell says:

    For those of you that like,Dance Moms Abby is co-hosting on The View. Some of the moms are in the audience. 2 of them raised their hands when Whoopi asked if they feel their kid is bullied. Whoopi asked why don’t they find another school. I couldn’t hear what they said cause they weren’t miced. Joy & Elizabeth are taking Abby to task for how she treats the kids. Joy really doesn’t like her. Abby tried to explain & defend. Elizabeth said she’s trying w/her kids not to just praise them like “that’s a good job” but explain why they did a good job like if one helps set the table saying “thank you that was very helpful” or when one ties their little brother’s shoe saying “thank you for tying his shoe. You’re looking out for you brother”. Something to that affect. Abby said asked Elizabeth why does she have to praise her kid. Why can’t they just tie their brother’s shoe? Whoopi said she’s giving her kids positive reinforcement. Abby doesn’t look like she get’s it.

    • melthehound says:

      HHH is about as dense as they come when it comes to things like that it seems.

      “Whoopi asked why don’t they find another school.”

      Couldn’t agree more. The Stepford moms are equally culpable for allowing their kids to be ‘bullied’ (Geeze I hate that word). Some of these girls are getting a children of the corn look to them.

    • adelaidesmommy says:

      What confuses me is the dichotomy of Abby’s personality. One week – she is literally the devil and the next week – she is a dance teacher that I’d expect her to be. I don’t know if it’s clever filming or what…. but she can’t be that opposite all of the time. This week, she shocked me with her positive comments to the kids and how she explained to Nia what happened last week. It’s like a rollar coaster. I still don’t think we see the full picture of who she is.

      • Powell says:

        She said that she can say in a nice tone to one kid ” you pointed your toes wrong……..” & that kid gets it the 1st time. There are other kids that she has to tell them over & over again. She also said she has a unique studio she had built. There are these tall, thick glass walls & when the music is playing she sometimes has to scream. Huh?? Whatever. I don’t like Dance Moms or Toddlers & Tiaras. Some if the kids are too young, you can tell when some of the kids don’t really want to do it or it’s just fun & not too serious to them & the adults are pushing them. So many of the adults are living out their personal childhood dreams.

    • L.A. Chica says:

      I don’t like Abby and can’t stand the way she treats the girls. It’s too painful to watch, so I don’t watch it. But I think Whoopie is right to ask the moms why they don’t switch dance schools if they think Abby is being abusive.

    • Putchka says:

      Hi everyone! I watched The View and they had the girls dance the most bizzare routine I have ever seen. It simulated a car accident (a bad one), the girls flinging themselves on the floor like they were ejected from the car. It was so weird. I didn’t like this obnoxious broad before, now forget it. No one liked her on the show, especially Joy, it was pretty funny…

      • adelaidesmommy says:

        How many times are they going to do this dance? They also did this on the series premiere and during last year’s season. For all the preaching ALM does about new routines each week……

        • iceNfire says:

          Was this the ‘texting and driving’ dance? I liked it and thought it got an important message across.

        • Putchka says:

          Hey Ade, watched the show once so don’t know the background. I had no idea what I was watching. They should have prefaced the dance with “Don’t twitter when driving” so I could know what the hell they were trying to portray. I thought it was a bunch of beautiful young girls getting hit by a drunk driver or something. Confusing. And very weird.

      • Powell says:

        Putchka you could tell Joy didn’t like her couldn’t you? Joy didn’t hide it. Joy was funny when she said “I’m not bringing my kid to your school”. Joy’s daughter is grown & her grandson is 2. That was funny. Yeah none of the ladies warmed to Abby. I bet Abby was glad to get out of there. She’ll never be asked back again

        • Putchka says:

          Hey Powell always look forward to your posts. I love Joy, she gives a great side-eye, as does Whoopi. They were full thottle with Abby. Very funny. Since I don’t watch this particular show I didn’t know this was an “anti-twitter driving program”. These girls are in training bras. WTF??? They can’t drive yet. Hopefully, Abby won’t be asked anywhere again.

  8. LA_Debra says:

    This is so cute, had to share. http://themarysue.com/nbyac

  9. lizzle says:

    Thanks for all my b-day wishes and I tried to reply to everyone, so if I missed anyone… it wasn’t intentional! I love EVERYONE here! Especially, those who agree with me… I kid! I kid!

    Here is my take on Melissa and Teresa. Bravo said to kiss and make up, because the audience is tired of the fighting. We can’t watch the same thing for a third season and production knows it. I bet the same thing happens in OC with Alexis and the rest of the cast. Unfortunately, this kiss and make up scenario might last the whole season 😦 My take on this has been discussed by others, so my post isn’t enlightening or anything. I just think Bravo knows we are all sick of this family war.

    As for Brandi’s lawyer bill, unless we see the bill… we might never know what she has spent on this Adrienne situation. Btw… I have read Brandi’s book. I always thought Adrienne brought her on the show. That isn’t true. She was at a party with a step and repeat. Adrienne was there and asked Brandi to hold Jackpot. So Adrienne and Brandi holding Jackpot took a picture and it went viral. Adrienne and Brandi do have mutual friends, but it wasn’t Adrienne who introduced her to production and lobbied for her to get on the show.

    • VV says:

      Speaking of Adrienne’s pet…Did she even bother to take her pets with her when she was evacuating her house during the fire near her home?

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        It did not appear that she did.

        • iceNfire says:

          It bothers me that Adri asked a Brandi who she didn’t even know at that point to hold her dog. Adri seems to think everyone is at her beck and call

      • T-Rex says:

        Adrienned doesn’t have pets she has “live” accessories, people who enjoy and keep the dogs/cats/etc., love and nurture them have pets, those that keep a live animal for a second and half before they discard them because they are no longer cute or needed have accessories, the HoofMaloofs photo should be plastered everywhere on a DO NOT SELL pet list, but alas she has money and there are uglybreeders out there itching to sell anyone that will pay their price.

      • lizzle says:

        Honestly, the only fire that was a threat to Adrienne that day… were her plans that always seem to backFIRE. I don’t think the casa de Bernie was in any real danger. I think if Adrienne was really concerned about it, she would have taken a lot more than her children and pets.

        And btw VV… you are good. You catch the little things that potentially tell a bigger story or give us more insight into these crazy housewives and their crazy producers.

      • If it was so dangerous, the firemen would have evacuated Adrienne. After you pointed out that she didn’t have the pets with her (unless they were already in the car?) I hate her even more.

    • BB says:

      It kind of defeats the purpose of watching if we know the truce between Teresa and Melissa is totally fake. I’m so over NJ and OC. Won’t be watching either this time around.

      • lizzle says:

        Well, I don’t know that it is… but I am not sure people can truly overcome all the backstabbing both claimed they did to the other. It seems like they might have had a helping hand pushing them towards reconciliation. These shoes are becoming increasingly more fake. Andy started his love for television with soap operas (i’ve read his book too), so I think he is loving these reality soaps, even if they are sometimes producer driven.

  10. Good “Hump Day” Morning! Chilly with possible rain this morning. Stay warm all of you in the snow!

    Thanks NMD, BlueskyForever, & SugarMagnolia for another great blog today!

    Sugar, this epi of Revenge was very tear inducing. I just wonder how Ems and Nolan are going to explain how they knew to go rescue Jack and Amanda, and what happened after. I originally thought uh oh if Amanda made it back to shore injured as they would have done blood tests etc. and the truth would have potentially come out. Now with her body at sea, that will not happen. So, does Ems tell Jack anything at this point, or still keep the secret? AND, this certainly helps ole Victoria with her “blame Amanda for Helen’s death” doesn’t it? The Graysons catch all the breaks don’t they! Also thinking there must be another reason they brought Ashley back…., and agree, still do not trust Padma! Thanks for the great recap!!

    Wishing everyone a great Wednesday, weekend almost here again!

    The Wednesday “Humor Post” featuring “Dogs Prayers to God” is up. Very funny! Enjoy!

      Thank you! I am so glad you were crying along with me! It will be interesting to see how Nolan and Emily explain saving Jack. And how Emily is going to cover this one up. I truly hope she ends up with Jack. She needs to tell him everything. We shall see in 2 weeks. And Padma…no trust for that one. Nolan, watch out!

      • majnon says:

        Sugar, that was an excellent recap of Revenge. I had tears again too. Good job

      • Sugar…..I would love to see “Emily” end up with Jack too….maybe combine forces in revenge against the Graysons now that “Amanda” is dead…but I doubt they will do that yet. Will Ems hold back the truth? Waiting is hard! 😀

    • Glad you enjoyed it Mardrag. I’m sad that faux Amanda died, it was sad. Thanks to everyone for the blogs today 🙂

    • Powell says:

      Emily can’t tell Jack the truth yet. And what about poor Charlotte? She felts Amanda was the only family that truly loved her. I don’t trust Ashley or Padma and Queen V just keeps comin up smelling like a rose. I tell you Amanda & Matthew dying was A sad end to the Sunday night dramas.

      • So true Powell about Sad Sunday Powell. I read that the peeps in the UK were very upset because that last epi with Matthew’s accident was televised on Christmas Day and ruined their holiday. They were upset they had to view that in the middle of celebration. I can kind of understand that.

        And I forgot about Charlotte…and how she is going to take “Amanda’s” demise. Will that make a difference in “Emily’s” decision to/not to speak up with the truth? There is no love lost between Charlotte and the Graysons now that she knows she is a Clark, so would that make a triad of revenge with Emily, Jack & Charlotte? Hmmmmmm!

        • Powell says:

          Hmmmmmmmmm?? I can sort of see Charlotte joining forces to take down the Grayson’s but Emily would have to tell her the truth, the whole truth & nothing but the truth.

          • Yes, she would…and I can see her doing that with Charlotte more than Jack at the moment. Remember, Charlotte trusted Emily with the news that Vic was still alive, so Emily may trust Charlotte with the truth now. BUT, Jack is still a wild card, and I could see him being pretty pissed off when/if Emily does ever tell him the truth.

    So Kelly and Christi (dance moms) kinda went back and forth on twitter. Apparently the walk out was really about the moms demanding more money from production, and it was edited into pretending it was about Kelly. So Kelly is upset that Christi used the fake storyline to make an excuse for being mad at Kelly. Christi tweeted something like “You said it yourself…storylines” Which, as confusing as it is, proves that this is all PHONY.

    Christi also tweeted this:

    Christi Lukasiak ‏@Dancemomchristi
    I’m back because it IS my job to be there. I have a contract. And I walked out and the show wanted me back.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      Kelly Hyland ‏@dancemomkelly
      Once again NOONE sat in the parking lot for my kids it was for their contract….remember this is edited tv

      Kelly Hyland ‏@dancemomkelly
      Christi u did not stick up for me or my kids …you and all the moms sat in the parking lot for more $$$$ it had nothing to do with my kids

    Some Whale Wars/ Sea Sheperd in the news:

    Japan halts whale hunt after Sea Shepherd clashes
    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-02-20/japan-halts-whale-hunt-after-sea-shepherd-clashes/4530854

    And here’s Sea Sheperd’s take with pics and video headlined: JAPANESE WHALE POACHING VESSEL, NISSHIN MARU, RAMS S. KOREAN FUEL TANKER, SEA SHEPHERD SHIPS SAM SIMON, STEVE IRWIN, AND BOB BARKER

    http://www.seashepherd.org.au/news-and-media/2013/02/20/japanese-whale-poaching-vessel-nisshin-maru-rams-s-korean-fuel-tanker-sea-shepherd-ships-sam-simon-s-1501

    Crazy times on the high seas. Putting aside whaling views, how irresponsible to take a tanker filled with fuel into a sanctuary and then into an ice field without an ice class hull. Thank heaven it wasn’t punctured.

    • lizzle says:

      That is pretty crazy. Those are some big boats fighting it out in the middle of the ocean. And I agree with the first article… the government needs to get involved. If there are laws against whaling, then why do they allow it to continually go on by the same ships year after year.

      • iceNfire says:

        But Opposition environment spokesman Greg Hunt says the Government is turning a blind eye to the increasing conflict.
        He says he has written to Mr Burke asking for a Customs vessel to be dispatched to the area at once.
        “It is time that the Government realises that they are approaching extreme negligence, and dispatches a Customs vessel,” he said.
        “Failure to do so is simply a failure to acknowledge the conflict, the hostility, and the taking of whales in Australian waters.”
        Australia strongly opposes whaling and launched legal action challenging the basis of Japan’s so-called “scientific hunt” in December 2010

        idk why the Autrailian government doesn’t enforce it’s laws

  14. BB says:

    I don’t watch Dance Moms or Revenge (I used to but they totally lost me), but thanks for the recaps just the same Sugar Magnolia and Adelaide’s mommy. However, The Walking Dead is still as awesome as ever! Thanks for the recap Blue! Can’t wait to see what’s next. So glad Daryl is back with Rick’s crew. They definitely need him.

    • Thanks BB. Rick should have kept Tyreese & his group, but maybe they will be back. In the comic books, Tyreese has a long relationship with Rick. Can’t wait for the next episode 🙂

  15. LaineyLainey says:

    some of you already know this, but I work at a church. On Mon, Tue, Wed I work in the church office and on Th and Fri; I teach Spanish here at their Pre-school. Well…the Children’s Ministry and Youth Ministry director (a young lady in her late 20s) just informed that her cousin “Dayna Devon” is a frontrunner to be a new castmember on RHoBH. Is that weird or what???? She hasn’t talked to her in 15 years, so I will probably have no juicy inside info. She said that Dayna is married to a plastic surgeon and dayna is currently appearing on Plastic Wives? But WHAT A SMALL WORLD!!!!

  16. iceNfire says:

    Does anyone here even watch millionaire matchmaker? ….. sry to even give it a mention

  17. Pghemtchick says:

    It’s breaking news at 5, but seems on the net 2 days ago: Ethan and Jenna from Survivor call it quits: http://www.seattlepi.com/entertainment/tv/tvguide/article/Survivor-Couple-Ethan-Zohn-and-Jenna-Morasca-4288376.php

  18. LaineyLainey says:

    no

    • LaineyLainey says:

      oops, this was supposed to be in response to i&f’s question about MMatchmaker

      • Catseye says:

        Right now I’m watching the Jodi Arias trial and today she’s explaining how she shot her ex-boyfriend, stabbed him and almost decapitated him.

        • adelaidesmommy says:

          She is crazy.

        • lillybee says:

          She claimed that she had a boyfriend when she was about 18 who said that he was a vampire slayer. The crazy started early.

          • iceNfire says:

            Oh! Does anyone watch General Hospital? It now has vampires and slayers, kinda sorta. Anyone remember Dark Shadows? That was my GrandMother’s ‘story’…was wierd she had a tv but only watched 1 show

            • Powell says:

              I haven’t been watching GH lately. The 35th Anniversary is soon & they plan on bringing back characters. John Stamos -Blackie Parish, is supposed to come on & Genie Francis-Laura also. Genie was on Y & R as Genevieve but shes gone. She was on Katie. I just saw the commercial. She changed her hair color darker & it looks good. I don’t know who else is coming back.

              • Orson says:

                They let Blackie out of jail?

                Not that I would know anything about that.

              • iceNfire says:

                Oh they have all been coming back for weeks, Felicia and Frisco what’s his name Jack Something? from Melrose Place. They married irl at one point idk if it lasted

                • Powell says:

                  Oh. How does Felicia look? She was on 2 yrs ago. Jack Wagner has been playing on the Bold & the Beautiful but I think they have cut his family off of the show & is now focusing on the main family.

              • lillybee says:

                Scotty Baldwin showed up today. I think that Robert will be back for the next sweeps.

                • Powell says:

                  Scotty Baldwin? Wow. Robert has been on back & forth. Is Robin really dead & that wasn’t the real Duke was it? I’ll have to watch on soap net this weekend.
                  Exit right. 50th.

                  • lillybee says:

                    Robin is not dead, Faison has her imprisoned in a Swiss hospital for the undead. When Duke first showed up he was Faison wearing a Duke mask. Robert threw some hot fondue on the mask and it melted. Fun times. Frisco is back.

              • Exit4 says:

                It’s actually the 50th anniversary! Haven’t watched in years but saw a piece about it on one of the talk shows! If frisco is back I’m tuning in!

              • Just Wondering in Jersey says:

                Sorry Powell, it’s the 50th anniversary on April 1st.

        • lizzle says:

          Um… gross. I hope they get this lady off the streets.

        • Powell says:

          She remembers everything going back to when her parents started hitting her to what she had to drink at Starbucks while on a date, the particular date & time but June 4th, the day she murdered Travis her memory is fuzzy, she doesn’t know if she’s remembering something that happened that day or before. She’s such a liar.

    • L.A. Chica says:

      Neither have I! They seem too claustrophobic-inducing.

      • L.A. Chica says:

        I mean claustrophobiA-inducing.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          I used to go “tanning” years ago. At first I was scared the bed would get stuck and I would be trapped. After the first time…I got over it. Now they have the ones where you just stand up-in a little enclosed room with a door-I never tried that. I would love to get a spray tan…but after the whole Adrienne thing I changed my mind. How embarrassing!!!!!

          • iceNfire says:

            I think those stand up ones are more expensive to use but I firmly believe the better/more expensive the lotion you use the better the tan.

          • L.A. Chica says:

            I have a friend who gets her legs spray tanned, but she doesn’t leave stains everywhere like Adrienne. I suspect with A it’s a matter of timing – she must be spraying herself at the last minute, not allowing enough time for the stuff to dry. Or maybe she’s laying it on too thickly?

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              She was looking mighty shiny on the way to the white party so maybe she got sprayed right before? I would be so worried that it would be all over my dress…not to mention everyone elses!!!

            • Powell says:

              That’s what I said. All the stars that do spray on tans & are on the red carpets mostly borrow clothes. They better not get spray tan on them or they will be paying for them. A probably does it herself. Remember when they had the beauty day? A has a few of those machines so she may have the spray tan equipment.

    • princesspindy says:

      I use Tan Towels..and they really DON’T leave skidmarks!!

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Ummmm PP-please enlighten me..WTH are Tan Towels???

        • princesspindy says:

          Tan Towels are a “wipe” that is colorless and almost orderless and you wipe it on and wait for the tan to appear….some people say they don’t work, I have been using them for years and they give a really good tan, not too dark, not orange, at least on me….I get them from HSN.com….I haven’t put my face and neck in the sun since I was 22 and that was 31 years ago, I use it mostly on my body, for my face I just use a darker bare minerals during the summer but sometimes use it on my face….

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Oh thanks…going to check them out. I don’t like to sit in the sun-I always use sunscreen. My white Irish skin is such a curse!!!

          • Powell says:

            Haha. PrincessP I was going to say they are sold on HSN. Also Sephora.

            • princesspindy says:

              I think in a month or so they should come on as a Today’s Special…. I love shopping on the internet and I got my serger yesterday and watched some Youtube videos….I’m a little askeered of it…lol…I am not in the mood to conquer it yet, my hubby is out of town next week so I can set it up on the dining room table and make a disaster zone of it until he comes home, I don’t want to scare him too much, he is still recovering from last years comic con palooza when I told him “It’s not getting cleaned up till I’m done so deal with it!” LOL, he went out of town, HAHA!! we are both neat freaks so it was hard on both of us. One of my bffs came over in the middle of it as I was making a 6 foot wing span cape and was laughing hysterically cuz she had never seen my house that way, she loved it!!!! I completely understand the meltdowns on Project Runway!!! There was one point that I was sitting on the living room floor and I just put my head down and started crying, LOL!!!

              • Powell says:

                Got the serger huh. That’s good. You’ll do all kinds of the things for your Princess’ costume. Happy sewing.

    I’m off to the library. BBL.

  20. I Need A Life! says:

    Lots of rumors on BH Housewives cast. I don’t understand why Yolanda would return, other than earning enough money to buy that second horse. In Vegas she said, “Sitting with a bunch of women gossiping is a waste of my time.” Bye, Bye then. Camille, no more. Adrienne, no more. And the comment from yesterday that she wouldn’t be at the reunion was spot on. Would you go? I don’t like Brandi at all. She throws the match, and stands around watching everyone put out the fire. She tries to smile, but with all the botox, it’s tough. Obviously without Lisa, there’s no show. I don’t care for Kim and honestly, what’s the point of watching her saga. The Zanuck friend (I can’t even remember her name) is a complete bore. She’s not sexy, funny, or interesting. Damn. How do these women marry so well??? I’ve had enough of Kyle. I’d like to see Taylor grow into a woman. If she wrote that blog, then there’s hope.

    • I do hope Yolanda stays, she is the real BH shi shi shi along with Lisa. After listening to that Howard Stern interview with Brandi, I don’t know what to think. She is a wild one. TMI about her dad & mom hanging around the house nude. Did that family nakedness include her brother? Howard was soooo interested in her; maybe there will be a three way in his future soon with Brandi. Forget about Kandi Koated nights – Brandi knows a lot more about sex! I guess it shouldn’t be so surprising, she was extremely honest and held nothing back, like anal with her hubs. Guess what? When she talks about 3 ways on the show, she knows what she’s talking about! Apparently, she wanted to join Ken & Lisa but they declined. Then she said that was a joke, but um, IMO she would go for it. I’d love to know which Hollywood a list female actor she had sex with. I’m glad Brandi can afford to take care of her kids now. It was creepy when she talked about her year dating a rich old guy, because he paid for things? Sounded like what a lot of young girls in Hollywood do.

      • Catseye says:

        I agree about Yolanda. As far as Brandi goes, I consider her to be total trash any more, talking about her perverted sex life with Eddie… I’ve read elsewhere that the A-list Celeb was Demi Moore.

        • iceNfire says:

          Well that’s what everyone that does the Stern show expects to be put thru. Years ago Lisa Marie Presley was on Stern and I was shocked she revealed so much. Maybe he plies his guests with booze? idk – Brandi’s interview was the 1st I’ve seen of Stern in years.

        • adelaidesmommy says:

          I really like Yolanda. But not in a HW way…. I just admire her outlook on life. And how she handles the other girls – especially Kyle. But outside of HW, I’d be interested in her recipes, etc. ….and possible 101 things to do with lemons. I’m not going to lie – watching her inspired me to stop wearing yoga pants everyday. 🙂 He hasn’t said anything, but I know my hubby noticed.

      • princesspindy says:

        Yeah her rich OLD guy that was 51, I just about died, 51…. OLD????
        STFU Brandi, LOL!!

      • Powell says:

        blue I totally believe Brandi was/is into 3 ways. She likes to joke a lot but she needs to stop saying things like that about Lisa & Ken or any other couple. Brandi needs to talk to Kandi about doing an LA version of “Kandi Koated Nights with Brandi” then.

        • Powell, I’m sorry that I listened to the Howard Stern interview. My opinion of Brandi has gone down.

          • Powell says:

            Well we only get to see 5% of their personalities & Howard Stern is a freak so I’m not surprised he got her to say what she did.

        • Beckygrey says:

          Stop some of you on here that are poopooing all of this have done the same. A lot of under Kover Kandi Koared Nights…You know some of you are freaky…Lisa Vanderpump freaky. It’s sex, whatever a couple agrees upon…if they like it…I love it. Just be happy! 🙂

    • T-Rex says:

      Heard that the following will return, LVpump, Brandi, VileKyle(every show needs a villain), Yolo and Marisa, Fired are: HoofMaloof and ShannaTaylorNotFordLyingGrifterHusbandStealerDrunkAssWhoreLypsMcgee. On the bubble is SpaceCadetMajorKim, Bravo knows she needs money but she brings nothing. They are looking for 2 HW and 2 friends to see if any have the potential for a HW position. Regarding FayeKR may still film at a VileKyle “hosted” party but not any others, because Bravo heard us loud and clear on that mess, and don’t tell Bravo that you are receiving death threats because they will rectify that situation by not showing you at all!

      • iceNfire says:

        LoL @ don’t tell Bravo that you are receiving death threats . That was a very dumb move on Fayekr’s part

        • Powell says:

          I hope that didn’t happen to her, but that helped us out.

          • T-Rex says:

            It probably didn’t happen to her, however she claims to have begged Bravo to take her one and only blog down due to “death threats”, of course we think Bravo took it down due to 100 percent negative posts, who knows, but FayeKR has “claimed” death threats on numerous occasions that turned out to be completely false.

    • BB says:

      “She throws the match, and stands around watching everyone put out the fire.” That’s Kyle, not Brandi. JMO

      • I Need A Life! says:

        Yes, BB. Kyle is like this. But, when Brandi spills the dirt, she walks away with a little, “oops.” Then everyone runs around trying to protect the person who’s being outed. Can you imagine having a Brandi in your life? I’d keep her at a distance. I think the series can do without Kyle. I checked out after the “promo” for her husband’s business.

        • Beckygrey says:

          Is that like Kyle attempting to physically assault Kim in the limo and outing her on national TV? (family secret, according to Kyle)

          • LaineyLainey says:

            It’s hard to forget that moment. Everytime I want to take her seriously; when she’s making her little judgement calls about other people’s behavior; I can see her taking stabs at her sister in that limo. I have to think all of her posturing is for the good of the show…to keep the drama at a higher volume. She and Mauricio know who is buttering their slice of bread and that’s who they cater to. They are not dumb; but I don’t admire them.

  21. Exit4 says:

    I miss NJ….after Brandi VS the world they will be a welcome dysfunctional respite!

    I doubt those 2, Melissa and Teresa are getting along. Not that it isn’t possible, they did it last year, but it’s short lives it seems. That’s probably how it’s always been and always will be. The big difference between them and he other wives Is that they at family and have a different set of pressures behind the scenes.

    If Joey yells Mel to play nice for his parents sake, she’ll do it. He could make it very difficult or impossible for mel to film if he wanted to. If it suited him. Say if, papa Gorga threatens to cut him off and out. Or demands to be paid back every penny he loaned him (and he lent him a lot of pennies!). When you’re Italian, even if your 70, your father can scare the poop out of you. Even at the infamous Christening-his father called him a baby and told him to go cry to his mother. Who can also make little joeys life miserable if he doesn’t reign in the wife. I definitely are so etching like that happening.

    Another scenario I thought about last year was, what happens if the Gorgas, lauritas and manzos fall out? Not that they’ll ever take up for Teresa or will Teresa be a friend to caroline or jac, but it’s very likely something could turn the lauritas and manzos against Melissa and joe. It wouldn’t take much. Then I see Melissa joining forces to get to of the 2 of them. A battle Teresa would enjoy. And guess what? I would too!

    No one cares about Kathy. Really. She’s so irrelevant! So she either yells at someone or trots out the “big cursing token lesbian” * for some storyline.

    *job description/exploitation title by Bravo.

      I swear I spell checked this drivel! Hope you can decifer. Only thing I miss about b berry….the keyboard!

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        LOL- I understood it completely.

        I think there is some motivation for the Groga’s and the Guidice’s to reconnect on a couple of fronts. One being that given how Joey and Teresa’s father has falling health, they would probably be guilt ridden if their father died thinking his children hated each other.

        The second being, Melissa knows how much fan support Teresa has, so by making nice with her it might get the “Tre huggers” (not real my choice of words-I am just using it for effect) off her back. Meanwhile, it will make Melissa’s fans praise her for being so gracious and forgiving.

        • melthehound says:

          Well, this ‘tre hugger’ will never have a higher view of that snake in the grass MeGo, at all, regardless of what she says or does. In fact, I was going to say this yesterday. I Teresa Ever trusts her with anything, then she’s a damn fool. Autotune married into the Gorga family, NOT the other around. She really should check herself and slap a muzzle on those bitch sisters of hers.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            I havent heard anything about her wicked sisters in a while….they should all be coming out of the wood work soon.

              Yep.. Sort of…. I thought they were the ones twitter feuding with this Bulldog guy… No?

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                I followed Bulldog for a hot minute but I couldn’t keep up with his rants! To tell the truth I haven’t really been on twitter much so maybe the wicked sisters are tweeting and Im just missing it.

                • melthehound says:

                  I don’t do twitter at all. I have 0 tweets, 0 followers, and I follow no one (and want to keep it that way).. I’m only speaking of what I’ve seen here especially when this ex bf stuff blew up.

              • Exit4 says:

                I think they were for a while. He’s not a good opponent for them, since he doesn’t seem to care or be intimidated by them. And may spill things they’d rather see stay quiet.

    • Powell says:

      OMG i were either one of them I’d just be so tired of being mad at the other ALL THE TIME. It just has to be exhausting. Isn’t there some type of scientific fact that feelings of anger like they have can shorten your life? Why can’t they just eat, drink & be merry.

  22. VV says:

    I still think this is funny

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      It is still funny….so gross and embarrassing. I wonder how many times this has happened to her. I wonder if it happens with all self/spray tans.

      • iceNfire says:

        I sure hope Adri sees this, maybe Bernie will share it with her

        • HuskerHuny says:

          What’s really sad is that when she was called on it, she was so not embarrassed by it and gave instructions as to how to get the stain out. Obviously not a first-timer! She really needs to realize that the world is not that impressed with her and is actually laughing at her.

          • princesspindy says:

            As Ramona would say, “She is so de~classe’ “

          • realhousewifeva says:

            I know! I would be so mortified! Instead she was retelling the story to Faye as if Lisa was crazy to be looking at her furniture or something? I didn’t understand that whole exchange at all. “I don’t look down at people unless I’m trying to lift them up” WTF? You stained her white furniture brown you PsychoticPlasticFace

    • Powell says:

      Haha. It wasn’t that bad was it?!?! That’s funny.

      • Kansas Girl says:

        If it was, I’d expect Bravo to zoom in on the stains. Since they didn’t, did the cameraman not notice them?

      cringe worthy. I would feel so bad if I did that to someone’s furniture.

  26. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Im so befuddled by this whole Asa thing. Were they married? Did she pretend to be married? I better go read the story again….slowly!!!

    • Kansas Girl says:

      What I find interesting is that he’s not objecting that his relationship with her was public. He just wants it known they were not married. I don’t get why that distinction is so important!

      • nyc mama says:

        It is at least partly because of the Persian culture where dating someone is one thing but marrying and divorcing them is quite another. He is a strange individual, with questionable businesses like natural ecstasy, amongst others, and Asa is strange as well. Seems he really wants to distance himself from her.

  27. rabblerouser2010R says:

    OMG….Lord give me strength..so everyone check this out.

    Some of you might remember me saying how I have an over baring MIL.
    Well, my dad is here in California visiting us for a holiday. My sister and her husband decided they wanted to go to Vegas for a few days, so we made a plan for all of us (except my DH because he has to work ) to meet them there for a couple of days. My sister actually pushed her husband to make their almost annual Vegas trip now because she really misses her nieces. When I was still waiting for my green card to come to the US, I lived with her and her husband so she help me raise my oldest daughter for the first 8 month of her life and was there through her diagnosis and intensive steroid treatment for epilepsy. She is very attached to her.

    My husband is now getting bit nervous about me bringing the girls there without him. Obviously, he knows I can take care of them, it just one of those things where he as their ‘daddy’ would be feel better if he was there to ‘protect’ them against ‘sin city’.

    So my MIL who asked if she could pick up oldest daughter from school today calls and says “ylan says you “Are taking the kids to Vegas?” . I tell her that I am and she says, that I should go and she will come to our house and watch the kids while I am gone. I tell her NO and I explain, it’s a sort of family reunion trip. She says she is worried and I say there is no need to be worried, especially given all the shoots that have been happening in the OC over the last few days Vegas might be safer. And she says how they are the only grandchild she has. Yes, But they are MY CHILDREN End Of…or so I thought.

    She calls a few minutes later and wants to speak to my husband but I tell her he is on a conference call so she can’t. Then she tells me I have to pick up my daughter because she is having a panic attack. I ask if there is something we can do and she says no and hangs up.

    So my DH calls her back…and sure enough…she is having a full blown panic attack because I am taking my children to Vegas for 2 days. DH doesn’t get why that pisses me off and I see it as being manipulative.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Oh RR-it is totally manipulative. I dont know how you are supposed to deal with this. My sister has a MIL who is just like this. My sis has been married for 25 years and it still goes on. I hope you can help your husband to understand what his mother is trying to do.
      Go to Vegas and have a ball..with YOUR kids!!!!

      • melthehound says:

        ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
        What Jill said (coming from someone without any inlaws Or kids 😉 ).

        • iceNfire says:

          yeah – my in-laws live in Thailand so I’ve never had to deal with this, maybe I’ll send calming thoughts to RR’s MIL….. Enjoy Vegas RR!

    • princesspindy says:

      RR, she is a piece of work….You go and have fun, she had her chance at raising kids and now it’s your turn. Your husband has lived with this all his life and may not be able to see it…or maybe he just doesn’t want to deal with her, lol. Don’t let her rob your joy!!! Let her have her panic attack and go have fun!! ….

      God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, ( HER!!! )
      The courage to change the things I can, (How I react to her BS)
      And wisdom to know the difference. (Viva Las Vegas!!!)

    • realhousewifeva says:

      OMG Are you me? Because I deal with that type of shit all the time and I’m sick of it. I just want to say “You raised 4 kids of your own and they aren’t all that special…let me raise mine!”

      • princesspindy says:

        HAHA!!!^^^^ they aren’t that special!!! lol!!

      • Powell says:

        Why dont you say it? I don’t have kids or in-laws either but I do have family members that will try many things but I just speak my mind to them all. I can’t put up w/crap. It gets on my nerves. One if my aunts has various illnesses. One, she’s an insulin diabetic. She will NOT eat properly. Over the summer I got so fed up hearing she’s not eating, gets so that she seems like she’s going to pass out. I told her I loved her but I was sick & tired of hearing that she isn’t eating, that the family cares about her more than she cares about herself & that I think she likes everyone feeling sorry for her. I told my mother I think she has munchosen. I think she likes feeling sick & the sympathy she gets. I also told my mother I think she needs a psychiatrist. So I don’t really let my family get away w/a lot if it really bothers me.

      • Laineylainey says:

        Bam!

    • BB says:

      RR. It’s been a few years since I’ve been to Vegas, but puleez, I saw plenty of kids there. Your MIL has been watching too much TV. Tell her to mind her own beezwax.

    • Powell says:

      Hmm. So Vegas is what 3 hrs away? You’re not going to another country, you’re their mom, all the other adults will be there. Hmm. I don’t see the problem. Did your husband tell his mom that the girls are going to play the roulette table & play poker & have a few drinks? They will be fine & will have so much fun. I’m sorry but tell your husband he started it. Your MIL is being manipulative. If she’s feeling so bad maybe she needs to go to the emergency room. RR that’s not right. You’ve got to nip that in the bud.

      • iceNfire says:

        Actually, taking her to the E.R. is a very good idea. If there is something wrong with her everyone will know and if there isn’t everyone will know that too.

    • mrs peabody says:

      I guess if she is in a full blown panic attack she sure can’t be babysitting your kids for a few days, she’s not well enough to do that. Go to LV and have a ball with the kids.

    • AZGirl says:

      Mr. AZGirl and I, First and Second Born have been…..
      Mr. AZGirl and First and Second born were in Indian Guides. First campout was a WHITE OUT SNOW STORM IN PRESCOTT WILDERNESS. They played poker for 2 days stranded in a tent. I had no way of getting to them and they were fine.
      We white water rafted down the Colorado in the Grand Canyon when they were 6 and 7
      In Mexico and survived an earthquake when they were 7 and 8
      The boys ditched us in Paris to find a toy store and they were 9 and 10. I was really pissed off then.
      The boy’s highschool has an Advance Biology class where they are taught to survive in the desert with a bottle of water and a film canister with cotton and a few matches for 25 hours.
      We have been to Vegas with them when they were small and it was fine. Security there is better than most cities due to the gambling.
      Let you MIL know these boy are fine and are self sufficient.

    • princesspindy says:

      A little too much wood for my taste and I don’t like the tile in the MB bathroom but OMG the comments are sooo harsh!!

    • Powell says:

      It’s nice. The Master bed & bath need to be done and the part on the outside after the main part of the house looks like an add on. Additions shouldn’t look like they are additions. Just some changes and it will be gorgeous.

      • looneylucy says:

        I also believe with some remodeling and updating it could be really nice. Personally, I’d take that house before I’d even consider Charo’s gawd awful place.

        • iceNfire says:

          I hear Fayker is available for remodeling

          • looneylucy says:

            LOL. That chick is the last person I’d ever consider!

            • Powell says:

              Oh no. I’d decorate w/Barbies Dream House furniture before I’d call FayeK. Not dissing Barbie. I love Barbie.

              • looneylucy says:

                Me too, ‘specially since I never had a Barbie growing up. I did have a Tiny Thumbelina and a Betsy Wetsy(?) tho.

                • Powell says:

                  Never had a Barbie? Oh no. I still have my Barbie, Camper & Airplane. I have 2 collectors Barbies. I’m going to try & get me a couple more one day.

                  • looneylucy says:

                    lol, Powell. I ended up ok in spite of it all! After I had hit “submit” i realized I wanted to add in parens (cue the violins). My daughter has a few collectible dolls we”ve accumulated. At this point in her young adult life, she couldn’t care less, but mom will hold on to them and she can deal with them later.

                    I still don’t want Resnick anywhere near me. That woman has some bad juju if ya ask me! Plus she always looks like she needs to wash her hair and take a bath.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      I think it’s ugly. It’s all wood, wood, wood! Big doesn’t always mean nice.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      If Leann and Eddie ever have kids, they will have extremely squinty eyes. lol

      • Laineylainey says:

        I hate to diss a kid…even one that hasn’t been conceived…but THAT I S FUNNY! Hahahahaha!

        • looneylucy says:

          OMG, my homepage newsfeed just posted an article saying something to the effect “recent reports of LR pregnancy false”. My question is, “who is LR in this world?”

      • chismosa says:

        Ha ha hahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    • chismosa says:

      Isn’t 3 million not THAT much for a really big star, in LA? I thought at least 5-7 million and up is what the big stars go for. Even double digits mostly. She must be managing her money.

      NOT saying that is cheap, just that in terms of her ‘star’ power- i don’t know that that’s so big, pricewise

      • looneylucy says:

        I agree. Supposedly, she’s quite wealthy. But to gut and remodel that place may be more than the initial price she paid. Also, I think I read it was on 2 acres. That’s a lot of real estate.

  28. realhousewifeva says:

    I just looked and Leann Rimes has over 55,000 tweets!! Brandi has over 17,000 and Lisa only have around 3,000. It’s interesting to see how much some people tweet.

    Onto a totally different subject..what do you all think of the Oscar Pistorius situation? It’s so crazy to me. How sad all around 😦 He really is losing it in court from what I’m reading, and claiming total innocence. But there are parts of his story that don’t add up at all to me.

    • Catseye says:

      I think he’s guilty as hell. Didn’t I read/hear somewhere that he had Testosterone and syringes in his house? I think too much can lead to violent behavior. That poor girl. So beautiful. She could have hooked up with anyone.

      • realhousewifeva says:

        On the news right now they said prosecution is backing off on the claims of steroids in the house.

      • Powell says:

        If someone breaks into your house & are in your
        bathroom are you going to go after the burglar that’s in the BR w/the door closed or are you getting the hell out of there & calling the cops once you’re out & w/your spouse/significant other? He’s lying. That’s not logical. He should have come up w/a better story than that if he was going to make up one.

    • The cops were called previously to the house for domestic violence, so it looks like there was a history there. If she has defensive wounds, which she should have since there was a cricket bat that he apparently used to bash her in the head, then that just cinches his guilt to me. 4 shots thru the bathroom door??? Wowza.

      She was a smart cookie, a lawyer, model & spokeswoman against rape. Too bad she didn’t see his rage coming. If your boyfriend even talks down to you, let alone raises a hand to you, time to get the h*ll out.

      • realhousewifeva says:

        I read that she did not have defensive wounds, just the shots that killed her. He is claiming the bat was used to break open the door after he realized she wasn’t in the bed.

        But yah if there was any domestic violence, she should have gotten the hell out. She was tweeting about Valentine’s day just the night before. Sad.

        • chismosa says:

          But wasn’t there blood on the cricket bat? or whatever you call it– so if he just used it to open the door- why is there blood.

          Wow so crazy. Nightline did a digital rendering last night of what he claimed happened. Walking on his stumps to his balcony and then to the bathroom to shoot. He walks around on his stumps? He doesn’t immediately click on something when he gets out of bed?

      • chismosa says:

        If she was a spokeswoman against rape – that is one thing- but if she is against domestic violence- this to me, gives me an idea she was in an abusive relationship in her past. As many who have been in that sort of relationship in the future go on to work on that cause. So…. maybe there was abuse?

        I negate all this if she was just a spokeswoman against rape (never heard of that kind of cause but good for her).

        There is a lovely lovely movie with John Malkovich that i enjoyed (i love him) – takes place in South Africa- it is very interesting. Called — Disgrace. I think it touches about the racial issues/ rape. Maybe this is actually a big cause in S. Africa, i don’t know.

        S. Africa is a very dangerous place it seems- in certain areas i’m sure, i know 2nd in shootings only to Colombia (this added to Pistorius’ anxiety). He should have moved elsewhere.

        • looneylucy says:

          chismosa, I volunteered on a crisis hotline/helpline in the 1980’s. Even back then there were centers/organizations to help rape victims.

          • chismosa says:

            victims of rape, of course yes i know of that– i just never heard of it as a ’cause’ – like, say, a march on ‘against rape’. But you hear of marches against domestic violence.
            I don’t know what i’m saying, …. i’m tired, excuse me 😦

            Yes, of course Rape is a true blue issue. I think S. Africa has things going on there though that we don’t here. Hence, the movie i mentioned. Beautiful beautiful movie.

    • BB says:

      I can’t see the prosecutors moving foward at this fast a pace unless they have something pretty incriminating on the guy. But maybe that’s normal for that country.

    • TexasTart says:

      I think if Pistorios is guilty, they should take his artificial legs away from him in prison.

  29. Powell says:

    Michonne took out the Gov’s eye now someone needs to take out the Gov. The groups chance at a better life is to kill the Gov & the group that are on his side so that they can live at Woodbury.

    The actress that plays Michonne was on The,View Monday I think. She is so cute. She has a brother. They grew up in South Africa. You can here a hint of an accent. She said there is a lot coming up for Michonne. She didn’t give anything away. She said there is zombie school for the actors that are zombies. The guy that teaches them is always on set & if they get a little too animated they have to go back to zombie school for a refresher.

    Spoiler alert. Don’t read if you don’t want to know who Mary Crawley’s new love interest is on Downton Abbey (it’s all over the net though).

      But Dude’s only been dead a hot minute…

      • BB says:

        On the other side of the pond, the season ended Christmas day. They are already filming season 4 so I heard.

      • Powell says:

        I know Lainey. I’m guessing it may not even come back to that. It may be couple of yrs.

      • Powell says:

        It’s six mths later. Oh my, my, my. Does she trade up or what? The love interest is HOTTTTT!! Maybe they’ll have Mary wear more makeup. Edith wears more makeup than Mary.

    • Powell says:

      Aw. Dang. I loved her w/Matthew but I suppose they couldn’t let her be a widow for long. I just hope Edith gets a husband. Is Julianne going to have Edith be the spinster sister?

      • BB says:

        Edith may remain a spinster because she’s falling for the editor whose wife is in the looney bin. Unless he divorces her, he can’t marry Edity.

        • Powell says:

          I know. That sure wasn’t fair back then. He wife is mentally ill & he can’t get a divorce. So not that it didn’t happen but he’s not suppose to ever have kids? He’s supposed to wait until she dies to go on w/his personal life?

  32. BB says:

    The Swan is coming back for a “celebrity” special. Former participants speak out.
    http://www.nypost.com/p/entertainment/tv/rearview_mirror_h2LFLXkXBTTHonoPpuoFqO

    • Powell says:

      Are you serious? Is Dr. Dubrow coming back as the surgeon?

      • chismosa says:

        I thought I watched the show that that Dr Dubrow was the “fixer” on and it was on VH1 or E– it was something about brides getting in shape for their wedding. He was a weirdo. But he performed the surgeries on everyone.

        Was he maybe also the doctor on The Swan ? I don’t know I never watched it. This is just crazy. I can’t wait to see The Soup make fun of this

      • Realhousewifeva says:

        I think so because heather tweeted about it

  33. chismosa says:

    Hi everyone— not sure if this was mentioned, i meant to post this very early this a.m.- but forgot:

    Kyle- i know you all LOVE HER- was on Nightline last night with her beautiful perfect family. Please go online to check it out! I don’t care what anyone says, i think she wears clip-ins to add fullness to her hair.
    Also, re: Kyle, i don’t watch BH but on Wendy they showed the clip of her on the phone with Taylor regarding not knowing where Tay’s daughter was—- you all realized they switched up phones mid-conversation right? It’s a different iphone when Kyle said ‘you mean you didn’t know where she was’—- just fyi. I’m sure some of you sleuths caught that, but it was a different phone. EDITING

    Hope everyone has a great day–
    glad to hear of some off stuff about ASS-a. hate her.

    • Powell says:

      I didn’t see it all Sunday so when I watch this weekend I’ll pay close attention. I don’t notice some of this stuff that you Slueths notice right of the bat.

      • chismosa says:

        Powell i don’t even WATCH Beverly Hills just that scene was shown on another show and the phone was glaringly different. I hope everyone saw that.

        Producers could have egged on Kyle to say something, given her lines, etc.

        • Powell says:

          See I don’t like Producer interference. I wouldn’t do it if I were them. Not that I would do a reality show. They do too much of what the Producers want to create drama. We know it’s not true reality but come on. You don’t jump in & say “wait a minute Kyle. Let’s do that again” when she’s talking to Taylor on the phone.

          • iceNfire says:

            Powell – OT – but Laura and Scotty are on G.H. and they are telling Luke they’re getting married. Felicia looks good but Frisco looks better LoL

            • Powell says:

              What? Laura & Scotty back together. Wow. I’ve got to catch up this weekend. 🙂

            • Catseye says:

              GH was my favorite show for years and years, until they unexpectedly killed off Leslie. I was so upset I never watched it again. That bothered me so much.

              • Powell says:

                Yeah that was sad. My soaps have been GH, All My Children, One Life to Live & Y&R. I haven’t watched GH regularly for about 3 yrs. I said I am going to start watching again. There are so many new characters. I did watch some when the OLTL characters came on once,OLTL went off. My mom told me AMC finally did make a deal to come back online & Susan Lucci will be back as Erica Kane.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      They did that on Vanderpump Rules too! There is one part where Scheana throws a fit because she isn’t allowed to work Lisa’s party since Brandi will be there. She storms into the bathroom. When Lisa goes into the bathroom to check on her, Scheana has on completely different earrings (I rewound it twice…different earrings) and Kristen has a different hairdo (a braid on the side, then no braid). So ridiculous how they are now setting up scenes.

      • Laineylainey says:

        Oh my gosh..they are just being lazy about at least pretending that this is in any way shape or form REALITY

    • california35 says:

      Ho chismosa – not all of us 😛

      • chismosa says:

        I ain’t no HO ……. 😉

        • TexasTart says:

          LOL! I didn’t catch it was a different Iphone in that scene! So why in the world was Kyle and family on Nightline?

          • chismosa says:

            It was a feauture on HAPPY FAMILIES. I hope you all got that. Your Vile Kyle is supposedly living the example of a perfectly happy family. I will try to put the link up here later when I can get back to my computer. It was cornball. I didn’t quite understand why she was in a “happy” family but I guess she is who they chose. They had all the daughters.
            The oldest daughter, the one I believe Kyle had pre-Mauricio, Farrah- she was wearing a cross so I assume she is not Jewish like Kyle said she was. Maybe Farrah’s father is Christian?

        • california35 says:

          Lol wopsy 😛

    • Kansas Girl says:

      I noticed it kept changing who was holding the phone. But didn’t notice a different phone. Reason to watch again.

      • chismosa says:

        Look closely at the case. Either they completely decided to CHANGE OUT THE CASE OF A PHONE (hahaa) OR more likely, someone else continued the call/ got Taylor back on the phone with the second phone. I loved the case on the 2nd phone. It was gold-ish

  34. iceNfire says:

    If Adrienne doesn’t show up for the reunion Kyle will only have Kim to speak up for her, if Kim is sober that is, and even if she is sober she isn’t all that useful. Marissa has her own mind and Taylor is a loose cannon at this point. Fayekr isn’t a RH so if she is even there her time allotted will be minimal. Oh this is gonna be good!

  35. Nancy says:

    My bff just sent me a picture of herself in the skating rink in Lake Placid where Sergi Grinkov died
    while rehearsing for Stars On Ice. This is the program when Katia fell in love with him.

    • Powell says:

      Oh no. That’s so sad. What happened?

      • Nancy says:

        He had untreated hypertension and died when he was only 28. They had a daughter together named Daria. She remarried another skating that won the gold in Nagano and had another daughter with him. Both daughters are figure skaters as well. There will
        never be a skating couple as good as they were. So sad.

      • Nancy says:

        They were in the middle of their program and Katia thought that he hurt his back during a lift so she helped him to sit down on the ice but he was dead before he hit the ice.
        Never should have happened.

    • Laineylainey says:

      Oh I remember that…their story was so romantic, they were both so beautiful,..tree was a TV movie made of their lives and his sudden death. They were so beautiful together. That’s the word that comes to mind…their skating, their twinkly eyes.

  36. Laineylainey says:

    There was a TV movie..

    • Nancy says:

      I love this one.

          Finally took the time to watch this…I didn’t want to watch while at work or when anyone was around, cause just as I suspected; I’m a puddle of tears. This was exquisitely beautiful. They were so perfect together. boo hoo. big sigh!!! DD is resting after a beauty show (cosmetics) at Neiman’s today and hubby is out running errands.

  37. NJBev says:

    Mel the hound,
    if you’re around.
    I just read your re-cap from last weeks Survivor..
    (great job btw) do you still think Cochran voted for Fran, or was it Dawn?
    I missed the first few minutes of tonight and only saw Brandon railing on Dawn,
    I am so confused!!

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Oh crap…I forgot about Survivor!!!!

    • melthehound says:

      NJBev, Thank you. Both of them voted for Fran.. I think Dawn and Cochran (as of last week anyway) are aligned.

      • NJBev says:

        That would explain everything-
        I’m so glad I asked, You will understand
        when you see the first 5 minutes of tonight’s
        episode! You had to see me trying to read your
        re-cap as the show started, I was so happy
        I had it to refer to when I realized I didn’t
        see the entire episode. Thanks!!

    • melthehound says:

      Yes, Jill, For real.. I haven’t gotten back in to the routine yet but rest assured, the recap is done and sent to NMD. I thought all I had to do tonight was watch American Idol for my Friday blog at Empress’s site. Wrong…..

      NJBev, You’re welcome. I had to go back and look at the last seconds of last weeks show to catch the who voted for who bit. Tonight’s was pretty good.. I have my faves and my faves to hate, early on. Haven’t picked a winner yet though. Too soon. We haven’t seen everybody in action.

  38. I Need A Life! says:

    I’m watching Hoarding on TLC. Can never get enough! There was a commercial for “Intermezzo,” a pill for insomnia. OMG. If you see it, you’ll never sleep thinking of all the side effects. But they’ve promoted a new show called, “Myrtle Manor.” It’s a reality show based on a trailer park and some residents. Could be fun to watch.

      I love Hoarding, there was only one time I had to change the channel…. It makes me so sad that they have all that good stuff and it is just rotting away. I would love to help clean out the houses of the women with the hsn and qvc addictions, lol!! But the ones that just pile up their human waste, ugckkkkgagkkkk

      • NJBev says:

        Pindy, you can to my house and help me! I’m a QVC addict!
        I have a basement full of boxes!

        I knew someone whose mother was seriously addicted to buying jewelry on HSN. They brought 4 BINS!!!! filled with jewelry to a local shop and only realized close to $80 for the stuff. They only thing worth it was the weight of the sterling silver.

          I have to admit I’m a shopping channel addict too. Only I’m a clothes horse.

          • princesspindy says:

            I have only bought clothes once and it was a red leather jacket and I just about died when I opened it, it was HORRIBLE!!! I sent it right back, have you ever bought those jeans by diane gilman, I think that is her name…..they don’t look long enough to me…but I am tempted…

        • princesspindy says:

          That is so sad, I don’t have the channels on my remote, i have to enter them in so that when I flip channels they don’t come on….I have to purposely put them on, lol!

      Have you seen the Stelara commercials w/Caridee from Next top model? They say the side effects- one of which is cancer…. Like…wait, pause, rewind- yep heard that correctly. Looked on the webpage and due to it lowering the immune system it can spark TB, fatal fungal infections, cancer, and a whole host of others. Scary stuff! Hopefully people are reading before swallowing.

        Couple years back a doctor gave me a sample of something that, when I looked it up, could cause suicidal rage and a long list of other problems. There were many many complaints from people about it. When I went back for the checkup and told the doc I didn’t use the sample, she was quite angry and could not understand my concern.

    Hi everyone! I am just watching BH – i must say i like the dresses at the “white party” better this year.

    They must start recording at a different time of year, so we dont have the white party every season. Enough of that.

    Princess Pindy…I saw your comment above this morning. Ironically, I tried my daughter’s Bare Minerals face cleanser the other day for the first time. Wow. Someone asked if I had done something to my skin. SO clean. Love it. I just asked her where I can buy some. Worth every dime.

    • Boobah says:

      Sounds great! I’d lke to try it! I just tried to google it…is it the purifying face wash? That’s what pops up when I google.
      Thanks so much!

      • I Need A Life! says:

        Bo..I used the deep cleansing foam. I’m really tight with cash, but this product is out of this world. Use only a pearl sized amount to clean your face. I think it’s worth the price. My daughter said the moisturizer is fantastic, but she hid it from me.

        • Boobah says:

          Thank you so much! I have been looking for a good face wash forever! I feel like I;ve tried everything so this is great!

    • Catseye says:

      Check ebay/Amazon for those products.
      I used to use Bare Minerals until about a year ago. I bought a supersize foundation (or it might’ve been Summer Bisque concealer.) While trying to pry off the perforated lid to scoop some out and put into a smaller container, the whole thing flipped out of my hands and $50 of stuff went into my toilet/all over my bathroom floor!! I switched to using an airbrush and I really prefer it. It’s a little more expensive, but seems to cover all of my sun damage spots really well.

      • Boobah says:

        I love airbrush make up but it seems difficult to self apply…is it easy?? I saw an informercial for airbrush make up. It was very expensive! But I have nothing to compare it to, so I don’t know if they run at different price points depending on size and what-not.

        • Catseye says:

          I actually think it’s faster and easier to use than liquid or mineral powders. For some reason, my Bare Mineral mk/up brushes always left hairs all over my face. I bought a Dinair system and so far have used Luminess, Vybe NYC and Belloccio foundations with it . I usually find the foundation on ebay for a lot less (around $15 a btl) than the manufacturer’s/shopping channels charge ($25-45). The clean-up is fast and everything fits into a zippered case that I can store in my teeny, tiny bathroom wall cabinet. The only drawback is having to mix 2 colors together since I haven’t found one to match my skin tone. I asked Dinair for help on their FB page and they promised to get back to me and never did–they are “SUPPOSED” to have the best customer service.
          I still use powder blush that I put on first, before airbrushing. Since that is one thing that never seems to come out right. I plan to take a class at my local community college in May called Airbrushing for Brides (not that I will be one, by any stretch of the imagination), but I’d love to know some professional tips.
          I initially bought my first airbrush kit from HSN as a Today’s Special (Luminess) for $89 back in Dec. I sent it back though, since 2wks after I had been using it, the compressor stopped working all of the sudden. I unplugged it and turned it back on, it worked fine. But that scared me, so I bought a “higher quality” one from Dinair. So far, it’s worked fine.

    #theblizzardofoz is well underway in Kansas. Snowing like crazy. Nearly a whiteout at times. Thundersnow. There’s about 2 inches and it’s coming down hard. Forecast is for THIS all day. Everything, EVERYTHING is closed. (and facebook is really busy, cuz what do you do on a free day but post pictures of snow!)

    • BB says:

      Well, you have Brandi’s book and hope you have plenty of food. Hunker down and enjoy! It’s sunny but chilly here in SE VA. I have my beach waves sound CD going and I’m pretending I’m sitting on the beach at the Outer Banks and it’s June or July.

    • TexasTart says:

      I noticed Kansas was getting hammered! The news had real pretty pics of AZGirl territory, but none in KS territory, because it’s a whiteout! Glad you are home, stay warm!
