Heidi Klum’s Strange Fashion Sense / Warren Todd’s Move to Dismantle an Iconic Part of London

Heidi Klum’s Strange Sense of Fashion, Warren Todd’s Move to Dismantle an Iconic Part of London and Other Gossip by NoMoreDrama

What in the world has happened to Heidi Klum’s fashion sense?  She made some worst dressed Oscar lists for this dress.

I wonder what Fashion Police will have to say?  Joan Rivers should be guest starring on the episode according to Nina Garcia:

LOVED having @joan_rivers @mel_rivers @rachel_roy on @officialprojectrunway. GREAT episode this Thursday

Is anything about Vanderpump Rules Real?  We know that Jax stuffs his swimsuit and lies about everything.  Is he lying about dating Stassi?  Here’s a link to a photo from 2007 that is captioned: “Vincent De Paul and boyfriend Jax Taylor”

I can’t bring the photo to the blog because of the copyright, but it has Jax with his arm slung around Vincent de Paul, sitting in what looks like front row seats at a fashion show.

Warren Todd is one Unpopular Developer

Warren Todd was introduced as Ken Todd’s grown son (in his mid 40’s) on the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.  A quick google of Warren shows that he is indeed financially successful as a developer, but hugely unpopular in Britain.  Seems he’s been “modernizing” an iconic part of London – Portobello Road Market – an area know for its antique stores and small merchants.  Warren is “updating” it, buying it up block by block and turning it over to higher rent chain stores.  It’s been a huge community battle as locals organize to keep the character of their neighborhood intact.

Warren has been characterized as a bully.  When 64-year old arcade trader Marion Gettleson  fought Warren’s attempt to get the one-day trading rule for a local market removed, he tried to evict her from the premises.  Warren had purchased the property (knowing about the trade rule) and then tried to get the rule changed so that he could lease it out for higher rents.  The one-day rule meant that stores could only open one day a week (a market format of trade).  Going to a seven-day trade rule would change the character of the trade area – and make it much more competitive for  chain stores.  Progress?  Not when you take something that is the heart of a community – an iconic piece of London – and turn it into just another chain store mall.

You can read about Warren’s battle with the arcade trader here.

Much of this started in 2010 when Warren Todd redeveloped another property into a mixed-use building, and rented out a large portion of the ground floor to a very large chain store.  The store didn’t honor the design aesthetics that were agreed-upon to at least keep the storefront in harmony with the remainder of the neighborhood – although the real battle was the store itself.  The sheer size of the store was out of character with what had been in the planning documents according to this article.

I could go on and on with this post but it looks like Mr. Todd is one unpopular developer in London.  I guess we can see how he gets the money to fly Lisa and Ken around in a helicopter.

    Good morning everyone. It’s WEDNESDAY!! Hump day has arrived. I think I’ve made it through the week. What about you? Have a great day.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Took my B-12. So, hoping for the best. The personnel committee brought bagels to work. Happy!! Free breakfast!! I love it. Freeeeeee! wheeeeee!

      • thedesigndiva2 says:

        laineylainey…. just talked to Mom…she just had her 83rd birth day…she takes B complex w/ B 12- liquid sublingual by SUNDOWN…white bottle and she swears by it…this , the woman who goes dancing 2 times a week and can cut a rug for sure…

        HUGS AND PEACE

    • Rebecca says:

      I’m stuck I. Chicago. They cancelled my connection last night. You can’t fully predict the weather 18 hours in advance! The first plane had NO running water. I asked two American gatekeepers for the whereabouts of an outlet where I could plug in and get Internet access and neither one was helpful.

      Thank goodness everyone is nice at the bar! Wolfgang Puck makes an awesome chimichuri y’all.

      • L.A. Chica says:

        Sorry you got stuck at the airport, Rebecca. The only thing that saves a situation like that is wifi. One thing I noticed in my last travels was the lack of outlets available to charge up my phone and iPad. Does Chicago O’Hare have plenty available?

        Back to the wifi, most have Boingo or something like it available. It costs, but imho it’s worth it if you’re stuck for a while.

        And imo Wolfgang Puck makes awesome everything. 🙂

        • Rebecca says:

          I have Verizon so I have my own hotspot. You have to find a random wall outlet, but when everybody hangs out at the airport all day, they’re always full. I almost downloaded Brandi’s book because the free snippet was actually really good, but I have six books I need to finish first.

          I’m at the Hilton (I know but WARM COOKIE) eating generic room service.

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        Sorry you’re stuck, Rebecca. It’s a good thing you have that chimichuri to help you cope, though.

  2. BB says:

    Good morning. All I can say about Heidi is that she must be going through some kind of mid-life crisis or something.

  3. scorpiosue1102 says:

    Regarding Jax, I think he’ll sleep with anyone, any sex to get where he wants to get or to be in the lifestyle he wants. Stassi said more than once she paid for everything. He’s trash.

    • Iowagirl says:

      I agree. I do think he was a fairly good actor though.

    • catmom1 says:

      Agree. I’d call him omnisexual.

      • catmom1 says:

        Oh crud, doing dishes and just realized this irresponsible man, by all accounts we’ve seen on TV engages in unprotected sex with women. I’m guessing he may engage in the same practices with men. These poor women (and men) he’s had sex with need to get tested ASAP.

        • Powell says:

          Not good but why would Laurieli go along w/it? Their both wrong & equally responsible.

          • catmom1 says:

            Powell, I wondered the same thing myself. Personally, I can’t imagine ANY thinking “adult” not using condoms unless they are in a long term, monogamous relationship.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      Agreed. And he’s 32 or 33? Pathetic.

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      That story about Jax and a boyfriend made my damned mouth DROP open. Are we being played? Are he and Stassi even a real couple? Is the whole show just a bunch of actors acting in a soap opera that we are supposed to be reality?

    • Beckygrey says:

      Of course she paid for everything, that’s why she was allowed to act like a dictator.

  4. Iowagirl says:

    I have been thinking of buying one of Theresa’s cookbooks. Has anyone tried the recipes? Is it worth it?

    • iceNfire says:

      There are so many recipes with comments posted online these days I think cookbooks will become obsolete soon.

      • L.A. Chica says:

        I have a couple hundred cookbooks, and while I do reference online sources for recipes I like cookbooks. I like their thematic quality, I like to read them for more than just their recipes, and I like to make notes in the margins. Online recipes are great and have their place (I especially value other cooks’ comments and their results and tweaks to the original recipes), but I also know that people who write about cooking and share their recipes need to earn a living. I’d rather buy a cookbook than have a professional food writer feel forced to take on endorsements to make money. YMMV

    • realhousewifeva says:

      I was thinking about it too, but I agree w/ Ice. I find everything I need on Allrecipes.com. However, I do think cookbooks still seem to be super popular and sell well (at least in Housewives land)

    • pat says:

      My sister bought T’s first cookbook for me. It actually was really well done and has some great recipes, as well as “dish” from the show. (I think she got in trouble with her castmates for going overboard with that kind of dish in her next cookbook.) I wouldn’t buy one myself, but I have so many already. I’ll sometimes grab a cookbook or cooking mag to read when I travel. But I agree that everything you need is online. I love that you can watch someone preparing the dish online. Helps me a lot.

    • nyc mama says:

      I looked through them and there is nothing in her books that is special. All are common recipes that can be found online on many sites especially those that specialize in Italian-American food and some of the recipes are better than Teresa’s. It isn’t like she has anything unusual or different. I grew up in Brooklyn learning recipes like T’s from grandmothers and quite frankly, some of her recipes missed the mark for many who grew up eating that food.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I have 2 of her books and use the recipes. The books are worth the money b/c they are not very costly and I like having cook books to look through instead of looking on the computer all the time. Does anyone have Lisa’s book??

        • Kansas Girl says:

          I gave Lisa’s book to my best friend, and per our agreement read it first. It’s a beautiful book. The recipes look nice and the photos and text compliment them. I’d call it “lush” because it just gives you that “ahhhhhh” sort of feel. I didn’t have it long enough to cook from it, but my friend says she’s using some of the recipes.

      • Powell says:

        nyc I’m a Brooklyn girl although I left when I was 4 or 5. The best girls come from Brooklyn. Barbara Stanwick, Susan Hayward. 🙂

        • nyc mama says:

          🙂 Barbara Streisand and others too. Although I haven’t lived there for a while I still consider it home. I visit my old neighborhood and friends there often and still love it there.

          Jill, if you want to support T then go for it. Otherwise there are so many better Italian-American cookbooks out there than hers.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            I already have 2 of her books-one was a gift and the other I bought at her book signing….don’t ask why I went to a HW book signing I still don’t know the answer to that!!!
            Tonight my sister is going to Tamra’s bachelorette party at a near by hotel-she is still trying to talk me into going…no shot in hell of me going to see that witch!!!

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              Oh, Jill you should go just so you can bring a full-report back to us (like a LynnFam spy).

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                If it were any other HW I would go but I’m not shelling out 100 bucks to see TammySue!!!!! In fact I don’t know if I would spend that to see any of them-50 bucks yes but not 100!!!!

                • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                  Oh, I didn’t know you had to PAY!! PHUCK that! I wouldn’t go either. I get it.

    • Rebecca says:

      I made two recipes she made public- the bruschetta chicken and the pignolis. They were both amazing. Or as Mo-money-rice would say: amaaaaaaazing.

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      I’ve heard nothing but good things about her recipes. I’m a cookbook collector (O.K., hoarder. I think I have a bit of a problem with buying them). So, I’d buy her cookbook.

      • nyc mama says:

        I too am a cookbook collector – so far 600+ and counting but I still wouldn’t buy hers for a variety of reasons but to each his/her own. Glad that some found them useful but I have a problem when she claims they are “her” recipes or her mother’s when they aren’t. I also have a problem supporting someone who I find sleazy but I do understand that others have a different opinion of both her and her recipes.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          Thank God I’m not alone in my obsession with cookbooks. Thanks for sharing that with me, nyc.

          It makes me feel less odd. 😉

  5. L.A. Chica says:

    Good morning! Hope everyone slept well. I did for the first time in months. 🙂

    What the heck was Heidi thinking wearing that boob-smashing dress? Over the years I’ve loved a lot of what she’s worn on Project Runway, but I’ve also reacted with many WTFs to what she’s worn on the show. Either her taste level is inconsistent or the show uses rotating stylists so it’s hit or miss.

    Jax is gay or bi? Whatever his sexuality might be, he struck me as a pathological liar.

    Warren Todd, say it ain’t so! How can the son of someone as lovely as Ken Todd be so ruthlessly greedy and destructive?! Portobello Road is so special and unique, one of the more unique neighborhoods I’ve ever seen, and he wants to obliterate it? Turn it into another cookie cutter shopping hell-hole of mass production like the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica? My heart is sinking. That anyone could want to do that and actually succeed is depressing me. Why not turn Buckingham Palace into a casino and hotel while he’s at it? This is horrible news.

    • Powell says:

      LA Chica I’m so happy you got a good night’s sleep. 🙂

    • Powell says:

      I hate that so many beautiful & historic buildings are demolished. Just as I hate that beautiful trees are dug up for residential & commercial bldg. Did you know The FBI J Edgar building is too small for it’s staff so they are looking at a county in MD to build a new bldg which would be great for my state but what I hate is they are thinking of demolishing the J Edgar Hoover bldg. So stupid. All the fed govt has to do is renovate it & lease sections of it to businesses. The bottom level can be leased for hi-end shopping. I hope they don’t demolish it.

      • L.A. Chica says:

        Oh no, I hope they don’t demolish it, either!

      • The DC area is atrocious in their lack of regard for historical architecture. I grew up in Rockville and there’s virtually nothing left that would reflect its history (a few old Victorians on W. Montgomery). It’s sad – and so different from the Pittsburgh area, where the old neighborhoods and little boroughs still have much of their character from 100 to 200 years ago.

    • I so agree this is sad! Progress is good…until it wipes out any reflection of the past. And the fact that this is messing with peoples way of life and income is maddening. They tried to do this in Santa Fe, NM when I lived there years ago too. There is a street on the downtown plaza where Native Americans lay out their jewelry, crafts & artwork during the tourist season to sell. For some of them, it is their only income for the year as during the winters & snowy (slow tourist) season, they go back to their land to make more to sell come the next season. Absolutely everyone in the city threw a fit and they canceled the plans. It is a part of the historic feature of Santa Fe and if they destroyed it, would take away a reason to even visit and would affect tourist season.

      Greed is not a pretty trait. I would not have expected that from Ken’s son as he seems different than that….but you never really know. 😦

    Hi all, we got back from Vegas last night.

    The trip went pretty well other than on Monday morning we headed to the buffet for breakfast and we had barely started to eat when youngest youngest daughter threw up. I took her to the bathroom a few times and then she threw up again at the table so we had to leave….she spent almost the rest of the day sleeping.

    Fortunately, it must have been something she ate the night before because she didn’t have a fever or diarrhea and was fine afterward. The downside was that was the day we were suppose to take the kids to Circus Circus so we had to give it a miss. On the car ride home yesterday, the WHOLE WAY, she kept on chanting “I want to go to the carnival”. Needless to say, I needed a pinot gris when I got home.

    My dad also made a wrong turn out of the gas station when we were bringing the rental car back and it got us lost, adding almost 30 minutes to our journey. Then after we unloaded the rental car and were switching back to our 4 runner (we took a rental because the timing belt on my car needs to be replaced so we didn’t want to take it on a long journey), it was dark so it was a pain in the butt., then I couldn’t see where I set my car keys down…another 30 minutes. Thus making the last part of the trip BRUTAL.

    Now I am going crazy…..I got a message from youngest daughters preschool that the 3 day program I wanted to put her in next year is full, so now I have to figure out what we will do.
    And I have to get things ready for the girls birthday party on Sunday, so far we have 50 kids coming with both girls having friends from their schools, family friends and kids from therapy. ARRRRG.

    Good luck to Diva and Detox on their new job opportunities, I love you all.

    • iceNfire says:

      LoL – sorry I know it’s not funny and glad to hear all is well now. If it came to baby crying on plane vs kid vomiting in restaurant…….

      • realhousewifeva says:

        lol, I’d take crying baby…and some benadryl 😉

        Sorry you had that drama, RR, I think your mother in law jinxed you..haha. Hope you had fun otherwise!

        I read an eCard once that said “You know you are a mom when going to Target alone is like a vacation and going on vacation with kids is like a job.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          LOL- the last time I went to a store alone I was on the phone with my husband when my daughter decided to give herself a hair cut..I don’t think I get a reprieve 🙂

          • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

            Your daughter sounds like a little rascal. 🙂

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              She is….you should see the pictures. I posted them in another blog. Thankfully, I had lots of advice and suggestions on from Lynn Fam on how to try and fix the mess. 😀

    • melthehound says:

      This makes me kind of glad I never had kids and makes me respect my parents a little bit more 😆

      • vilzvet says:

        Fifty kids, boy you are a trouper. Good luck.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          😀
          Since I posted that, I have gotten some more last minute RSVP’s and now we are up to 60 kids. I originally bought loot bag stuff for 48 then ordered another 12 last minute. Now I think I might have to go to the store and buy some more stuff for younger kids (like 2 and under in case I forgot a kid or something so I will have emergency stuff).

          Truth be told, I am starting to feel a bit overwhelmed.

          On of my girl friends is coming over Friday to help me put the loop bags together, I am thinking we will also need some wine. My house will look like it was bombed by oriental trading company and a dollar store

          • RR…glad you made it through your trip and the little one is better. I remember those days of parties with kids and loot bags. My DD and nephew frequently had their parties together. I had a great idea one year (*sarcasm*) to have a silver table cloth (on a long table I had) and throw shiny confetti on it around the gift bags. WTF was I thinking?? I was picking tiny pieces of confetti up off that hardwood floor for weeks. They threw it everywhere! :-/ . Big lesson learned, LOL!

            Have a great party….and take some of those meds I posted on my humor blog today!! 😛

            • princesspindy says:

              lol, when I made the centerpieces for my friend’s hubby’s 60th I used the clear opalescent shredded cello and my DD said, “We are going to be picking that up for the next year.” That was in November, I am still finding little pieces of it….. (I don’t know who “we” is, cuz it’s me!! lol!)

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              LOL.
              We are having our party at a petting zoo, so thankfully I don’t have to worry about my house getting trashed. Not to mention, there is no way my house would hold 6 kids let alone 60.

              I think in the next year or so, we won’t do birthday parties for them anymore but instead take them some where. With what we will end up spending, we could have taken them to Disneyland for a couple of days and stayed in one of their resorts for a night.

              • Well that works RR….save your house!

                After awhile, I think they do outgrow the parties and we moms are out of fresh ideas so going somewhere special is a great idea. My DD’s bday is coming up April 2nd (yes I went into labor on April Fool’s Day!) and she will be 32 yrs old! Still not sure what to get her this year! 😦

                Wishing you a fabulous party this weekend and that your sanity stays intact!

                • Boobah says:

                  That’s funny about April Fool’s Day! She’s an Aries, like me! I love getting people birthday presents….hmmmm, what does she like?

                • rabblerouser2010R says:

                  OMG- My oldest was born on April Fools day…and it doesn’t shock me that she is now little on the silly side. Of course that year, April Fool’s also fell on Palm Sunday so I call her a “Palm Sunday Baby” 🙂

                  • Yeah…I went into labor on APFD and said, no way, not having baby today….so “they” said ok…and I was in labor until late in the day on the 2nd! :-/ Careful what you ask for! LOL!

                    You APFD baby….is she the silly one who cut her hair the other day? Such a cutie!!

                    • rabblerouser2010R says:

                      No, oldest was my APFD baby, youngest who cut her hair was born March 12, it may as well have been the ides of March from where I am standing tho 😀

    • Powell says:

      RR I’m glad your baby girl recouperated. Such bad luck that you missed most of one day. It’s good you got to enjoy the rest of the trip. Well back to the real world now. Just breath. 50 kids? Ouch. But they’ll have a blast.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        Thank You. I am so happy she is well too. I was so scared thinking about a sick child on a 4 plus hour drive in a rental car no less…not to mention, if she was so ill she would miss her own birthday party. Thank God that whatever it was passed. 😀

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      Hi Rabble,

      I’m sorry your trip didn’t quite turn out the way you planned. I’m also sorry that you’re under so much stress. A woman’s work is never done, as they say.

      Thanks for wishing me luck.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Hey RR-even though things didn’t turn out exactly how you planned-I’m glad you went through with the trip!!! The girls party sounds like great fun!!!!!

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        I wish you were closer Jill, so your little one could come. I am sure our girls would be fast friends 😀

    • Laineylainey says:

      Never a dull moment with little ones!

  7. iceNfire says:

    Maybe this explains the sour look on the face of Warren’s wife. I think Lisa mentioned that her family in London wasn’t please that she is on reality tv and then they show up with cameras to show them in helicopters. It does make Warren look greedy to those that oppose him. If jillzy pulled a move like this anywhere in the world we would be calling for her head

    • realhousewifeva says:

      Warren didn’t have to agree to be filmed. I’m sure Lisa could’ve visited without the cameras. I bet he wanted the publicity.

      • L.A. Chica says:

        I wonder if he wanted to be filmed with Lisa and Ken because they are so beloved by the public. Maybe he’s hoping his close, familial relationship with them will cause some of that love to spill over and soften his image as the evil, greedy developer.

        Imho, the only way to accomplish that is to stop BEING the evil, greedy developer.

  8. realhousewifeva says:

    Eww, Heidi’s dress was worse than Brandi’s.

    I posted the Jax pic yesterday. I thought that was gonna be the big ‘shock’ on the finale.

    Taylor tweeted that they are filming the reunion on Friday. I thought Andy said there is still a few more weeks before filming the reunion, but maybe they upped the date since Lisa is going to be so busy now? I mean, there has to be at least 5 more episodes (if not more) remaining before the end.

    The dish did an interview with Brandi about the Oscars:

    If you follow Vanderpump Rules, there are some interesting points after Heidi Klum….(who looks awful BTW) and some more stuff on warren Todd later in the blog…. Sent from my iPad

    Back from the ortho dr… exploratory surgery scheduled for 03-21-2013.. 90% prob that mr ford will be needing a full knee replacement… oh yea..just our luck… I like this dr..he’s a nice little ,and I mean I am taller than him and I’m 5′-4″, jewish boy…. and funny…he asked mr ford if he had any surgeries in the past and he said NO… I then told the dr that we dont count the labotomy because is wasn’t elective but needed…. dr says to mr ford..good thing your wife has a sense of humor..mr ford tells him..she adds sunshine and laughter every day….damn you mr ford for making me tear up !!!!!
    he drew 2 oz of fluid from the knee and that looks normal..like lemon pudding… the swelling went down alot when he did that..and YES mr ford can continue to do LIGHT house keeping… dr was impressed he actually mopped and vacummed… picture this…2 grown ass men talking about which is the best mop to use… laughter ensued for sure…
    I then asked the dr if mr ford could play golf after the surgery..he said sure..why not.. I told him well that’s good cause he couldn’t play before…. good thing this dr has a sense of humor..he actually got the joke…. so all toll..we were in there for a good 40 mins… no rush and the place was packed… lots of folks with bad knees it seems…. and he does his own decorating of the office..
    all southwestern themed and tastefully done..TG no palm trees or miami vice themed like most of the offices here…BARF…

    SHOCKED at Heidi’s choice of dress… woof…woof…. guess sleeping with the body gaurd does that to you… ( allegedly )

    JAX / JASON… aint nothing but a man whore…nasty nasty nasty…

    off to make some lunch for the patient… final interview at 6 tonite..fingers crossed I can get FULL TIME at this place…. and the plus side..it’s more the job I really want to do vs. working front desk at hotel… we shall see….

    hugs and peace

      Good luck Diva, I will be praying for you.

    • HuskerHuny says:

      Humor will take you a long way before, during and after the surgery.Great attitude!

      Unfortunately, I woke up with a rather swollen right knee this morning. I had a scope on my left knee a little over 12 years ago so I guess my right one is catching up. I was told after a major surgery to correct a broken ankle/bad doctor situation in 1992 that I would be looking at a knee/hip replacement in the next 20-25 years and here we are at year 21. I hope this self corrects and I can drag it around for a few more years.

      Best wishes to you and your husband.

        Well that sucks Husker. I hope you’re taking it easy & doing what you can to relieve the pain & swelling.

    • Good luck with all of this Diva! Prayers that you get this job…..and for Mr. Ford’s surgery. Hang in there! HUGS!

    • AZGirl says:

      Diva you are too funny. That golf joke was great! I have had 3 male friends from the gym who have had knee replacements in that past 2 months. One had BOTH knees done at the same time which is rare. He is in excellent shape but years of hiking the Grand Canyon have taken their toll. He had the surgery in mid-November and was back in the gym without a cane in 6 weeks. He is hiking a 6 mile hike this weekend.
      Key to fast recovery for Mr. Ford is to get him up and moving right after surgery and he needs to go to physical therapy DAILY for at least 2 to 3 weeks. The more he moves the faster the recovery. Pain is going to be horrendous. Worst than hip replacement. But he needs to get up and move and do the therapy. Once he is recovered I am told the new knees are fantastic.

      • thanks gals…and az girl..I am just tickled that mr ford even agreed to the surgery… doc showed me his mri’s in the comp screen and saw the arthritis also…I guess outer and inner meniscus is shredded… they are going to look at his right knee also because that’s the one he injured playing football back in the day… maybe a get a twofer….TG he is a good patient and listens well…and takes his meds … got 2 calls that he has to go to cardio dr and primary for check ups pre op and have them sign off that he is well enough for this procedure…mr ford even wants to update our wills … maybe all my jaw yapping has paid off and he really has heard me over the years…
        we have the brochure on the knee and he will be using the STRYKER…
        off to have some hot java…I took a nap..which I hardly ever do, but I was beat..now I am tired and sleepy eye…. interview at 6…. I ssssooooo hope I get this position…. and a 40 hr work week… 1.2 miles from the house …yipeeeee saving on gas already…4 bucks a gallon… SUCKS…

        bbl w/ news either way

  11. pat says:

    Just read Kim’s blog where she claims her meds were messed up in Paris. I don’t know if she was drinking, but maybe she went overboard with her meds. It just seems she “protesteth too much.” I think she still would love to get acting work, and she really wants people to believe she’s got it together now. Not entirely sure I buy it. She definitely seems medicated and a little odd in her communication, even tho much better than before. Seems like she might have a degree of arrested development. Odd lady.

    • iceNfire says:

      To me she seemed unusually happy. I have an assortment of pain meds and muscle relaxers and a script for xanax none of them make me happy. Dying to know what she takes…I can’t figure it out

    • Iowagirl says:

      Wrong meds with her? B.S, she is a liar. Being in recovery she should not have ANY meds in her home or anywhere else. I am so sick of her lying ass.

      • princesspindy says:

        When I was getting off drugs, I was on meds because they didn’t want me to have seizures….in fact I went to a NA meeting and the women convinced me to throw out my meds and because I wasn’t “truly clean” and I went home and I did it…. I got so sick, my Dr. made me swear not to do that again…he was pissed!!
        I have 27 years clean and teach, sponsor and work with ladies that on their recovery and make sure to tell them not to stop any drugs that they have been prescribed, to make sure they discuss it with their dr first. ippho

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          27 years! Wow, Pindy! Congratulations!

          From the little bit I know of my family members who are/were addicts and got clean and sober, they STILL had to take certain medications. My Aunt Bunny was an alcoholic and pill popper (even pills she’d pilfer from other people’s medicine cabinets) for YEARS (I actually think it’s left her with some brain damage). Even though she got treatment (more than once), the doctors she has now still have her on certain medications for her bipolar disorder, her anxiety and something else (I forget what).

          One of my Mom’s brothers, who is ALSO a former addict (and also bipolar), has been clean and sober for years now. He actually went back to school and got a degree and is an addiction counselor. Because he now considers himself an EXPERT on addiction and sobriety and even smarter than my Aunt Bunny’s doctors, he told my Aunt Bunny that if she were REALLY going to be clean and sober, she needed to stop taking ALL of her prescribed medications.

          Well, she listened to him and wound up back in the psych ward with BIG problems.

          • princesspindy says:

            Yep, a lot of the people I have worked with self-medicated for a reason….bi polar, depression what ever was going on with their brain chemistry…..

        • Laineylainey says:

          You are da woman, pp.

    • AZGirl says:

      Typical Hollywood rehab. No drinking but you are on meds. If Kim is taking her recovery so seriously then why is she mixing up her meds and why are there any meds whatsoever in her home?

      • princesspindy says:

        AZGirl, look at my comment above. 🙂

        • Rebecca says:

          But didn’t you take extra care to take what was needed when you went on a trip???

          Kim said she stayed up until three am packing and was meticulous with everything but… her meds???? I’m calling shenanigans on her story!

          • iceNfire says:

            I don’t take meds on a daily basis cuz if I do they stop working But I always carry them in my purse cuz I never know when pain is gonna make an appearance. I don’t believe Kim knows what is true anymore so writing a blog must be hard for her.

          • princesspindy says:

            Of course, I am not defending Kim, I am just saying in general about recovery and meds. She shouldn’t be on this show in the first place!!! lol

        • AZGirl says:

          I can see that happening due to drug dependency but alcohol? There are a bunch of posts on Kim’s blog from recovery patients and they are saying she is not recovered due to the use of meds. Maybe there is more than just alcohol with Kim. Regardless, she took the wrong medication with her to Paris and that tells me that Kim needs serious assistance or a home nurse watching over her. I do think Kyle is a trigger for Kim to relapse and Kim should distance herself from Kyle.

          • princesspindy says:

            She shouldn’t be on the show, she should be at meetings everyday, ippho. She is a long term abuser and this show is not good for her.

          • princesspindy says:

            Oh and I don’t think Kim was only abusing alcohol, allegedly….there was that list of meds that she rattled off to Paul….she should have been in long term treatment, like a year….ippho allegedly and all that jazz

  12. Maryla says:

    I’ve been away from the blog for awhile, my job can be insane. I do try to read through the comments on the housewives shows (which I barely even get to watch anymore…). Anyway, I thought about this after reading yesterdays blog. Brandi came into the BH housewives with Adrienne, right? They were friends and that was how Brandi was “introduced” to the other ladies. I think that Brandi decided early on to ditch Adrienne and hitch her wagon to Lisa’s star. Then for good measure, to beat up on Adrienne with some inside “friends” information to get publicity and draw attention to herself.

    I think Brandi is crazy like a fox.

    And that dress? Simple explanation. Only A-listers make the Best-Dressed List. The next best way to get publicity for yourself regarding the Oscars when you aren’t in a movie and aren’t the sidekick of a movie star? Get on a Worst Dressed List. Again crazy like a fox.

    She couldn’t have possibly looked in the mirror and said, “Oh, I look great!” before she left the house, she must’ve used industrial strength double-stick tape in order to keep that dress in place. Either that or her nipple is located in an unusually low spot on her breast (?!?).

    • iceNfire says:

      ITA – She was only a commentator and usually what they wear even get mentioned

    • Kansas Girl says:

      In her book, Brandi says she was not friends with Adrienne. She happened to be on a step and repeat with Adrienne who asked her to hold Jackpot for a moment. This was the extent of their contact.

    • Realhousewifeva says:

      Brandi and Adrienne were never friends. Bravo always uses another housewife to introduce a new one and pretend there is a relationship, when half the time there isn’t. I think the only reason Adrienne pretended to like Brandi was because there were reports that Brandi was buddy buddy with Cedric. Adrienne probably loved that idea to get at Lisa. Didn’t work out for her cuz Karma is a beyotch

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      I agree with the others here who say Brandi and Adrienne were never friends. In fact, I read an interview with Cedric where he said he and Brandi weren’t really friends either. BRAVO wanted to find a way to possibly keep Cedric on the show in some capacity (to stir up sh*t with Lisa, I’m sure) and to get Brandi on somehow.

      Cedric said he really met and got to really talk to Brandi at a BRAVO-producers’ lunch where the producers discussed the “storyline” of Brandi having known Cedric from her modeling days. I think Brandi and Cedric may have known each other in passing from their modeling days, but they were NEVER friends the way BRAVO portrayed them to be on the show (and neither were Adrienne and Brandi).

      It’s the same thing with RHOOC acting like Tamra was REALLY the Dubrow’s realtor. I mean, do you guys REALLY think the Dubrow’s would use TAMRA as their realtor?

      I don’t.

    • Beckygrey says:

      No Brandi was not friends with Adrienne. The story she tells is that A ask B to hold her dog while she took a picture on the step and repeat. They struck up a conversation and A told B she should audition for the show.

  13. Good Morning! Hope everyone’s day is off to a good start!

    Mine was frustrating. My long time mechanic moved so I took my car to a new place for front brakes this morning. I guess they “thought” they saw a woman sucker come in and totally tried to wayyyy overcharge me. Guess they did not bet on a smart woman sucker! So I “Rocked ‘Em Like A Hurricane” and got what was right. Makes me mad tho….Grrrr. This silver/white hair should have been a sign to them, but I guess everyone has to have a “learning” day! LOL! 😛

    Heading up to read the blog. Have a fabulous Wednesday.

    • iceNfire says:

      There’s way too many Kyle supporters on Brandi’s blog. Maybe she should bite the bullet and write her blog…but what could she possibly say at this point? The only way we will be rid of Kyle is if she leaves voluntarily cuz Bravo Thinks they need the drama. She already did the diving show what’s next for a former child star? Skate boarding?

        @nitebloominjazz @CafeSmom Actually, she’s told the world but never talked to me and truthfully, I don’t play games. We are married, have been for almost 2 years. It’s my family and I’m allowed to share my happiness. I don’t go around spreading hate and lies. Which one is worse?

        • AZGirl says:

          I am here. Trying to bring over a pic on the internet of Sue Vanner (Warren Todd’s wife/Lisa friend). Can’t seem to get the link right. I guess Sue starred in The Spy Who Loved Me. She has not aged well. She had something done to her eyes and they are wonky.

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          Ice, you don’t have to borrow my shrug. I’ve got SO many of them, that I am gifting you with a whole caseload of your VERY own. Feel free to use ANYTIME!

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          In the “kind of” words of Adrienne Maloof, “Uh Oh….somebody’s LYING!!”

          LeAnn claims that Brandi never talked to her truthfully. Brandi is the one that suggested they all go to family therapy together to try and co-parent successfully (not Eddie and not LeAnn. If it were NOT true, Eddie and LeAnn would have come out and denied it already). Eddie said he had to ask LeAnn’s permission first. Once she granted it, they allegedly had a couple of sessions.

          Also, in a recent interview, Brandi said she once had a conversation with LeAnn where she let her know how much it hurt and disrespected her when she continued to call Brandi and Eddie’s sons “my boys” and purposefully did things to overstep her boundaries and disrespect Brandi’s role as those boys’ MOTHER. Brandi said LeAnn responded, “Well, they’re MY family too!!” (If this were not true, LeAnn and Eddie would have denied it already).

          Brandi also had Eddie and LeAnn over to her house for Easter dinner once. So, I’m sure there WAS a time period when Brandi was able to talk to LeAnn (She just can’t have their home phone number, and she can NEVER talk to Eddie alone or without LeAnn being present. She can only go through his assistant if she wants to talk to him, per LeAnn’s instructions).

          LeAnn is a LIAR (and a phucking FRUIT LOOP)!

          • iceNfire says:

            wow – I didn’t know a lot of this…Leann must lead a miserable life, too bad, so sad. Maybe if she had a child of her own she would lose interest in Brandi’s but since she hasn’t already gotten pregnant I’m beginning to think Eddie got himself fixed and didn’t tell her

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              In a recent interview, Brandi did say that she thinks that things would probably be much better between her and LeAnn if LeAnn had a child of her own because then she would be able to “get” Brandi’s position.

              I think Eddie’s fixed too, and I don’t think he told her either (but I COULD be wrong).

      • Laineylainey says:

        I’m here, I’m here! We snuck by the paps? So braggy!

    Thanks NMD for the scoop on Warren Todd. You do such a great job with this blog. It is appreciated by all.

    • iceNfire says:

      did you write those prayers?

      • Rebecca says:

        No, they’re common Catholic prayers. I’m going to repost the link for nine days in case anyone else wants to join in.

        Saying a prayer for someone is really rewarding. I told a Jewish friend I would pray for her when her grandfather died, and then asked her if it was disrespectful that they were, well New Testament prayers and she said that offering blessings for someone is so comforting, and that even Jewish people enjoyed getting Christmas cards because what is wrong with offering someone some peace and joy?

      • nyc mama says:

        first let me state that if Jax is bi-sexual I really dont care but this photo seems to be the only “evidence” that he may be. The photo shows two men sitting side by side in a common position when people take a joint photo, not in some kind of warm embrace. Just because De Paul is gay doesn’t mean they were together romantically. Considering it is a title given by a photographer from a photo service who may or may not know them personally or Jax’s sexuality, I have to take this with a grain of salt.until it is confirmed. Jax Since many people pose with their arms around each other like in the photo I don’t see this proof of anything and I don’t even like Jax.

        • Laineylainey says:

          You are right, NYC mama! Who cares if he’s bi or gay…I only care that I got duped!!!!!! LOL

          • nyc mama says:

            LOL. I understand. Dontcha hate when that happens. Well, I only hope Peter doesn’t let me down too. 😉

            Still not sure how true this is, considering the source and lack of other info. It is like reading something on ROL or RT or a few others from a “source”. Grain of salt.

  18. Nancy says:

    I’d bet the farm that Kim was on some sort of opiates while in Paris.
    She said that her stomach hurt and that she felt nauseated. I’m sure her plastic surgeon have her a Rx for Vicodin after her nose job. Her “happy” behavior along with the others spells opiates to me. IMHO her nose job so soon into her recovery was a big mistake.

    • BB says:

      I didn’t know you lived on a farm, Nancy!

          • Nancy says:

            She’s driving me crazy. She doesn’t want to kill them she just likes “playing” with them.
            Plus they are very hard to catch once they are in your home as they can hide anywhere.
            At least she’s not bringing in birds so far this year.

    • AZGirl says:

      I had Demerol in the ER for broken ribs and that made me so sick.
      I took Vicodin ONCE after removal of a mole off my face. I had 19 stitches across my cheek (but you really can’t tell now). I passed out and did not wake up for 24 hours. My husband was so worried. Four years ago I was given Oxyicoxin (sp?) for servere muscle pain due to a bad case of the flu and holy crap I felt like I was floating on air and in heaven. I told Mr. AZGirl to put them away and hide them. I know now why people get addicted.
      I have only had narc/pain meds 3 times in my long life and I have decided unless it is an emergency nothing more than Tylenol, Advil or Aleve for me.

      • Nancy says:

        You poor thing. Opiates are soooooo addicting. I’m not sure what her plastic surgeon was thinking. Many doctors don’t know a thing about addiction so they keep writing out those Rx’s. I remember when you broke your foot. You have bad luck AZGirl. 😦

        • AZGirl says:

          Actually I broke my toe last July and I am all healed. That was just a stupid thing to happen mopping my floor.
          The plastic surgeon was a good friend and he only gave me 2 pills. I took one and well “night night”. Other than the bad cough this winter I have been really lucky. It seems like every 4 years something happens like the flu etc. Considering most people my age have those little pill sorters and I am not even close to that yet. Just my HRT pill and I planning on dropping that this spring if I can.

  19. AZGirl says:

    Tonight Top Chef finale is LIVE before a audience. How crazy is that. Whoever wins is fine with me. Both Kristen and Brooke are great competitors. I am looking to see how Padma judges Kristen. You can tell that she does not like her. Probably because Kristen is a former model and is beautiful.

  20. I agree that Kim acted high when she was in Paris. Princesspindy reminded us that Kim gave Dr. Paul a laundry list of meds she was taking. Even though Kim may not be drinking IMO she still has a prescription drug problem. My bio dad was a raging alcoholic and abusing prescription drugs sometimes goes hand in hand with alcoholism. My dad abused oxycodone and vicodin. I hope she and her family are taking her addictions seriously and encouraging her to get proper treatment. I unfortunatly don’t count on that happening considering her family’s history with drugs and alcohol. Her niece “Paris” has had her very public exposures with drug use and I believe her brother has been exposed as well.I think denial is rampant in this family.

    Ok another FYI… When Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey were married and doing the “Newlyweds” show, Jessica said she had a boyfriend who cheated on her with a famous county music star. Any guesses who?
    Again if you said Leann Rimes you would be correct. Allegedly, Jessica was dating Jensen Ackles (of “Supernatural”) while he was on “Days of Our Lives”. Leann had a guest role on the show and that’s when Jensen allegedly cheated with Leann. Jessica ended her relationship with Jensen and he and Leann began dating a short time later. Seems Ms. Leann has a pattern of taking other women’s men.
    I’m not sure how to bring over “tweets” from Twitter but let me give you another example of how twisted and stalkerish Leann IMO is. The night of the Oscars Brandi took a picture and posted it on her twittter of a bear and said “Hanging with Ted” (bear from movie “Ted”). Well today LeLe re-tweets something from “Ted”s twitter account. She always waits a little while or a day or two to copy Brandi. She did the samething after the RHOBH episode of Brandi’s stripping class. Leann got on twitter the day after that episode and taked about how she used a pole to exercise for many years.
    This woman is a sick,over indulged woman who has never been told NO by anyone. She takes who and what she wants and if she can’t have it she sues. She has sued her parents, fans, now a dentist and I’m sure there will be others. All of this is alleged but documented and IMO.

      Leann Rimes is morally corrupt. Why keep messing with men who are in a relationship, even if they are willing? Have some dignity.

      I don’t believe her when she makes claims that Brandi’s book is full of lies because this woman is so sue happy I’m sure she’d already have a suit against Brandi by now.

    • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

      Why, oh why, is she SWF’ing Brandi? I just don’t get it. Brandi even made a comment once about it. She said, “I don’t know why she wants to copy me constantly and almost to turn into me. I mean, Eddie did CHEAT on me after all. So, it’s not like being exactly like me is going to keep him totally faithful to her.”

    • pat says:

      That’s so demented. She made such a big deal tweeting and posting pics of her green “Oscar dress” too. Even the day after the awards. “Here’s another pic of my dress.” Why? because Brandi was getting press for her dress, (even if it is bad press). I hope Brandi can really turn a blind eye and a deaf ear to LR’s b.s.after her book tour. The constant creepy copying would drive me crazy, and that’s LR’s objective.

  21. Hope I did this right.

  22. Leann retweeted the “Ted” tweet. I just find it more than coincidence that Brandi had mentioned “Ted” on twitter just days before. If you ever have time to waste you can read through LeLe’s timeline and see she does this a lot. She and her sycophant fans also know how to get their subtle and not so subtle digs in toward Brandi.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      Yah just like right after Brandi’s book came out where she mentioned Pilates being her favorite form of exercise, Leann starts tweeting about going to Pilates class and how she’s been doing it for 9 years.

  23. Powell says:

    Ice how is your son doing this week?

  24. Powell says:

    Does anyone know how Lulu is doing?

    And where’s DJPrincess?

  25. djprincessc says:

    Omg hahahhaha I’m dying laughing bc I was literally going to pop in and say a big “HI!!!!!!!” to everyone!! I miss you all and have just been lurking around reading the past few weeks! 1. Bc I get sucked into the blog and can spend the WHOLE day here and do nothing else! And 2. Bc sometimes the blog gets a TAD cliquey for me, Idk how to explain it but sometimes it doesn’t seem like everyone gets included, nothing happened or anything like that but just an observation idk if that makes sense?!?!?

    Anyways Powell thanks for your concern! I do miss everyone and will def come out of my lurking! Just gonna have to balance it with work and life! haha!

    xoxo everyone!! 🙂

    • Nancy says:

      There you are dj. I have missed you a lot in the evenings as we would watch the
      X-Factor together. Have you been watching American Idol? Please check in again. 🙂

      • djprincessc says:

        Hiiii Nancy missed you tons!! Yes I have been watching American Idol! Have you?!?! I have to say none of the talent gives me chills this time, the girls are wayyyy better than the guys though. I’m enjoying the show and watch it with my parents, my dad gets obsessed during it! My mom and I can’t even talk cus he gets all huffy and puffy!! lol. How are you and your husband doing?? 🙂

        • Nancy says:

          Hi dj,
          Yes I have been watching it. I love the guy that sings gospil music. A few of them are
          talented and I LOVE seeing Keith Urban. That man is gorgeous. If you feel like it we
          can live chat later tonight. So glad to see you again.

          George and I are doing fine thank-you.

          • djprincessc says:

            I feel like they are getting better so I’m just giving it time for someone to knock me off my feet. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Mariah and Keith is hilarious! Eventhough I’m team Mariah, Nicki does give good advice but she doesn’t let the other judges talk as much. I will be here to chat about it!!! 🙂

            • Nancy says:

              Sounds good. Nicki is a little too weird for me. I think Mariah is so sweet and kind to the singers. Very gentle in her remarks and NOT a diva at all.

              • djprincessc says:

                Right??!!?? Mariah is a little too nice!! She seems soooo relaxed! Prob because shes seen it and done it all?!?

        • chismosa says:

          DJ………………
          where have you been girl!!!!
          i’ve been behind on the blogs here, trying to catch up– hope you are well!!!!
          xxxxxoooooo

    • Powell says:

      DJP I’ve missed you. Just like Detox. You needed to prioritize. I understand. Glad to see you. I’ve missed your whit. 🙂

      • djprincessc says:

        Awww Powell I’ve missed you too! Today I didn’t work, just been relaxing my big mission for the day was trying to find a wireless Hello Kitty mouse and a mouse pad! haha! So far the stores are sold out so I probably will have to order online. Booooo!!! How are things with you!?!?!

    • Laineylainey says:

      Hi dj princess!!! XXOO

      • djprincessc says:

        Hiiiii Lainey, I miss you and your silly inappropriate comments!! Did your daughter move out here yet!?!?! xoxo!!

        • Nancy says:

          dj,
          Have you been following the Jodi Arias trial? This woman is CRAZY!!!

          • djprincessc says:

            Nooooooo I’ve seen the articles on radar but I haven’t read anything about it, all I know is she killed a boyfriend? Husband?? Whats it all about???

            • Nancy says:

              It’s too weird to explain. I just started watching it last week. She killed her boyfriend but doesn’t remember doing it. Need I say more? She’s a sociopath IMHO.

              • djprincessc says:

                I’m going to have to read about it then. Are you following that guy that shot his gf? The olympian I think he was, with no legs?? And he said he thought it was a burglar??!? I feel so sorry for her family and her of course, I can’t believe the judge just let him out with that tiny amount of bail!!

                • Nancy says:

                  Isn’t that sad. I don’t know what to think. So very sad for all.

                  • djprincessc says:

                    It is, someway though he will pay for what he did to her. Thats a huge reason why when I see my girlfriends rushing into relationships moving in with a guy that they HARDLY know it makes me scratch my head. You just never know how a person really is, esp soooo soon, its dangerous!! I think they were only dating for like 3 months!! 😦

        • Laineylainey says:

          What do you mean my silly inappropriate comments cough cough anal beads!!! Cough cough. No my daughter is still here.. But she leaves mar 15. I’m freaking out a Lil bit.
          ¡Mi bebe!

          • Nancy says:

            (((Lainney))) You could adopt dj?

            • Laineylainey says:

              I could, Nancy…but something tells me that i will find out on tomorrow’s blog that you beat me to it! Hellooooo..Jax and the bath? That still stings.

          • djprincessc says:

            Hahahah anal beads!! If she needs a friend or any help or you want me to check up on her I’m here!! I think she’s younger than me right?!? I can’t imagine moving to another state without my family or any friends!! Is she excited?

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Lainey…remind me on March 15th to ship Maggie to you for a few days…I dont want you to be lonely!!! You can play dress up and do her nails and twirl around like princesses all day!!!

            • Laineylainey says:

              Oh girl, I know you meant that to be playful but that just made me cry. She grew up too fast!!! (5 min later)….ok, I am better now. I’m a bit verklempt, but I need to shake it off. She will be home late, her last dance class ends at 10pm…so I have time. I would love to play with Maggie!

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                Oh LaineyLove I didn’t mean to make you cry!!!! I was just being a smart ass (and trying to pawn off my Diva). We will all be here for you when March rolls around-to hold you hand and try to make you smile!! They do grow up fast-my older daughter will be a teenager this year and it scares the sh*t out of me!!!!!

                • Laineylainey says:

                  Be afraid. Nahhhhh just kidding…she sounds like such a sweet, smart, decent kid. You will have fun!

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Hey dj-nice to see you!!!!

    • iceNfire says:

      Hi djp – i kinda sorta noticed a couple cliques but i’ve never felt excluded here. Good to see you 🙂

      • djprincessc says:

        Hiiiii iceNfire!! This blog has been very welcoming! I started posting about a month before Lynn had passed (RIP) but had been a reader of her blog for a lonnnngggg time. There were only a few times where I felt like that or noticed it being done to others, like I said it was just an observation nothing that would ever keep me away from everyone! lol. I’ve just been in my own world and focusing on work, being an adult sucks sometimes! Its nice to see you too!! xoxox!!

        • iceNfire says:

          Yeah, I noticed when I missed a day and went back to see what comments were about. I realize now that it was just my perception of things. Some of us are east coasters and leave before some west coasters even get here….and some of us log on in the morning and stay all day 😳

    • chismosa says:

      DJ don’t feel like that — about the clique-y thing– i think it’s simply that people that post very regularly know the other peeps that do that as well. I think it’s a combo of time-posting & maybe things going on in each other’s lives that are similar? I don’t know…. my theory.

      I hope you come back MORE. I miss you! and Detoxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

      • djprincessc says:

        Chismosa!!! I’ve been thinking about you!!!!!!! I miss you too!!! How have you been? Whats new!!?!? DId you ever get my email address?? Don’t worry I’m not staying away because of that, the HUGE reason was bc like I said I can spend all damn day on here gossiping with everyone!! Plus, the shows haven’t made me feel as invested this season, I mean I LOVE Beverly Hills but the whole Adrienne/Brandi thing has been beaten to death and I think everyone on here has given even theory possible!! haha!! And for some reason Atlanta has lost me this season, I have no clue why cus NENE is my fave!! The last new episode I didn’t even pay attention the first 10 min and then I ended up changing it!! WTF?!?!?

        Anyways I’ll be around!! I truly meant to post sooner but just didn’t get around to it. Missed you tons!! xoxoxoxoxoxo!!

      • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

        Hi, Chismosa!!! (*Waving Like A Maniac*).

        I’ve missed you too. Every time I see something with or about Jenni Poulous, I think of you and the beautiful way you explained Greek Orthodox weddings to me and how it helped me understand and enjoy Jenni’s wedding episode more.

        I also think about the things you told me about astrology. 😀

        • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

          I’ve missed you too! I hope all is well with you too. Things could be better, but I’m still above ground. So, I guess that means things are still o.k.

  28. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    So my sister is at Tamra’s bachelorette party-she just sent me a picture of her and Tamra (I swear sometimes I think we can not really be related-she LOVES Tamra) Tamra looks like she has had some serious work done on her face-she looks tight and pulled..she also has some sort of burgundy extensions in her hair…in short she looks ridiculous!!! My sister said that people actually brought gifts for Tamra…my response was …FOR REAL????

    • iceNfire says:

      wait – didn’t people pay to go to this thing? And they brought gifts???

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Ice yes the paid 100 smackeroos…now my sis just sent me a text saying that Tamra is opening the gift right now….IDK why anyone would bring a gift!!!

        • iceNfire says:

          O-M-G! Unbelievable! Please let us know what gifts are

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            I just asked about the gifts-she couldnt see what they were…she said that Tamra’s hair guy is following her around doing touch ups!!!

          • Catseye says:

            Too weird. Especially for her, of all people.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              My sis just said that Tamra is so tiny and so sweet….my sister needs help!!!!!

              • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                ROFL. Jill, you SLAY me with your comments! Are you depressed by any chance? i remember you and I discussing how we were so much funnier and snarkier (O.K., not really funnier and snarkier…just bitchier. There, I said it ) when we are depressed/stressed.

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                  Nah Detox-Im cool…I just cant deal with Tamra..or my younger sister and her love for Tamra…she is killing me with her texting-“Oh Tamra is so sweet”…”Tamra is so pretty”…ewwww I want to punch them both!!!!

                  • Laineylainey says:

                    You’re killing me with this play by play! LOL!

                  • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                    CACKLE, Jill!! I wonder if you and your sister are this Night & Day about everything else.

                    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                      Well come to think of it we are. She LOVES Brandi-I do not. She LOVES Tamra-me, not so much. I think she LOVES Melissa and well…she might not be my sister after all!!

    • realhousewifeva says:

      Did a lot of people go? Sorry, but that is so pathetic that people shell out 100 bucks to go to Tamara’s fake bachelorette party.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Oh dont be sorry-it is pathetic!!! She said it is jammed packed-which I could not believe-but there are a lot of popular vendors there. When they have a “show” like this in my town all the vendors get people to come-I think that more people are there to shop than to see TammySue!!!! (Im sad to say that my own flesh and blood is there to see Tamra!!!)

        • realhousewifeva says:

          LOL, my best friend loves Reza and Asa, so I feel your pain 😉

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Really? I used to LOVE Reza-last season but Asa always annoyed me. I did like when she did that little party at that lady’s house last season-she seemed so happy then and humble…this season she is just annoying and FUNKY!!!!

            • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

              I was in love with Reza in Season 1.

              I divorced him and got an Order of Protection against him during Season 2.

              I loved Asa in Season 1.

              Season 2 now makes me see her as this fake-spiritual person. I mean, when she was holding those diamonds to her head to feel the energy…..I was just like, “OMG, I just CAN’T with this sh*t!! And I am NOT going to pay extra for anybody’s ‘diamond’ water. Hell, I’ll get a cubic zirconia, say a prayer over it and stick it in my glass of tap water…and probably choke! Knock it off, Asa!! Worry about hiring some people to break up the concrete in front of your house to get that $30,000 worth of coins and give it to your Mama and your Daddy because they NEED it!! What the EFF??!! Girl, BYE!!!”

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                Why the F did she put those coins in the concrete anyway?? I missed that all together. I liked her last season-she seemed so calm and “normal” but she let that whole Pop Priestess shit go to her head. Who needs diamond water? She is nutty!!!! She thinks people will just buy whatever she is selling…some will-people do buy that black water crap that the Manzo boys sell.

                • I Need A Housewives' Detox Program says:

                  She put those coins in the concrete to the entrance to her house because she believes it will attract even more money to her and into her house.

                  I’m a spiritual person, but I think that even God might think I was a little bit stupid for doing that.

  29. iceNfire says:

    @ Powell – Kid is doing good Thanks for asking 🙂

    @ Nancy – Kid is returning to work Saturday..elevated leg may be a prob. suggestions?

  30. chismosa says:

    That dress made Heidi look like she has fake boobies which i don’t think she does (and i think EVERYONE has fake boobies lol)
    I can’t wait to see Joan on PR. Nina was on FP on monday so it’s a nice switch. And Nina is so warm and nice on FP– which imo we don’t see of her on PR.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I saw Nina on FP (one of my FAVE shows BTW) and she was the complete opposite of her usual up tight bi*chy self. It was a big change from how she was on PR back when I used to watch!!

      • chismosa says:

        I have a feeling Nina in real life, is warm and fun and carefree (aka more ‘Latin’y warm)- but she toughens up when she’s on PR. Her cold heart did melt at times for certain people, i think Mondo, and i think she loved Dimitri last year (i loved Dimitri, what a sweetheart). Sometimes her heart does melt.

        Fashion Police i finally watched, it was funny but they never addressed Jennifer Aniston’s dress and i was so looking forward to hear their take and Joan’s jokes at her. Ha!

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          She always seemed so stand offish and cold to me but she was not like that at all on FP…I didn’t even notice that they didn’t discuss Jennifer Aniston’s dress…and her played out hair do!!!!

          • chismosa says:

            yeah, the only reason she’s taking ANY fashion risks now is because she’s with a very hip guy and this guy was with a noted fashion stylist for 14 years before Aniston took him away from her (yeah yeah it takes two, whatever). So he no doubt influenced her. Not that crazy of a dress for any other actress but for her it was a big departure.
            I never understand why this woman is so adored by America. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz’s.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              She said the dress was very “The King and I” or some dumb crap like that…she looked like she was going to the super market with her hair style. She doesnt really have that Hollywood glam thing going on…

  31. chismosa says:

    Nancy i’m sure you heard about this, i’m too sensitive i think to watch it because they are my favorite animal on earth, but this is on tonight:

    “Battle for the Elephants” premieres on PBS on Wednesday, February 27 at 9PM EST.

    I want to dvr but i don’t want to cry. 😦

    • Nancy says:

      Hi chismosa,
      I don’t think I can watch it either as I love elephants. Stuff like this keeps me up at nights. Humans disgust me at times. Thanks for the heads up though. Maybe I’ll
      tape it and make my husband see it first.

      • KTinCT says:

        I DVR’d it but was watching some parts and changing the channel during the parts that upset me (I’m a coward)…. Tomorrow I’ll try to watch in entirety while Maggie is at pre-school….

  32. realhousewifeva says:

    I just saw a pic on twitter of Tamra at her bachelorette party and she should fire her hairstylist

  33. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    OK here is the BEST part of Tamra’s fake bachelorette party…they gave out penis shaped cookies with Tamra’s name on them…that Tamra-always keepin’ it classy!!!!

  34. Nancy says:

    dj,
    Are you around? 🙂

    • djprincessc says:

      Was just about to post Nancy! Hope the girls do well tonight, American Idol seems to have changed they way they’re making them perform this year, I don’t remember it being like this before.

      • Nancy says:

        You’re right. It’s totally different but I like it. The first girl was so-so.
        Loved her hair though. lol I hope I’m not going to get you in any trouble with your father.
        We better be quiet.

    WTH?

    She is beautiful! A front runner for sure. (IMHO)

      Now I don’t know which one you’re talking about, the one before the “Circle of Life” singer?

  39. chismosa says:

    Ok hi DJ- i saw your response above—
    Sorry i had these big computer things with Itunes i was on the phone with Microsoft for help and then i have to uninstall and reinstall itunes, it’s like a big huge job i’m doing here.

    DJ:
    i saw your email address, i’m sorry i meant to jot it down. I will catch you again and give you an email address to use—
    i hope things are ok with you, i know you say work has been crazy and yes, to be on here all day can be so addictive and you get lost with it. I hear ya!

    DETOX— i am SO happy to see you posting. Still reading upwards, but i hope things are settling a bit with your family. I hope to see you back to normal on here. Would love to hear your take on all things Bravo (not that i’m watching much, just Shahs and Atlanta). That’s all for me these days 😦
    Hope everything is ok.

    • djprincessc says:

      Its ok, I hate hate hate computer stuff bc one tiny little thing can take hours and my patience and computer skills are pretty low! lol. Things are ok with me, I was so close to listing someones property yesterday, met with them and everything at their house and then they decided not to sell 😦 its part of the business but I really need the money right now so I was a little more disappointed. So back to square one for me, but its ok. lol. Anything new and fun with you!?!?!?!?! 🙂

      • chismosa says:

        i get it, how real estate is. So tough– the way money can come in big at one time, rather than in increments.
        Things are ok with me- just trudging away working with my parents and helping out as best i can.
        It’s nice to come to this community here and feel warm and secure to discuss all things.
