Special Saturday Bonus Blog – Don’t get Spoiled!
Sheree Whitfield has been Granted a Restraining Order Against Three Bloggers – or Has She?
First of all – I’m not one of them. I have never even been to Atlanta. Now that we’ve got that covered, let’s dive into what has happened.
Let’s start off TamaraTattles. She is an Atlanta blogger that has written a few, but not obsessive amount, of blogs on Chateau Sheree. Let’s face it, when we saw that empty lot on the show, we were all thinking Sheree Whitfield would never finish that house. Tamara took the time to check in from time to time to see if there had been any progress on the house. Construction has been in fits and starts, but finally it looks like there is more than just a shell on the site. Apparently the last time Tamara went by there was a construction crew on site, and she talked her way into getting inside the partially-completed home (allegedly the construction people let her in) to take photos. According to TMZ, Sheree was granted a restraining order and Tamara cannot get within 500 yards of her. I sort of get that since Tamara actually went on her private property, although I think it’s a stretch to call Tamara a stalker.
Then there are two other bloggers named in the TMZ article. One of them – Funky Dineva, talks candidly about the whole thing on Kandi Burruss’s show Kandi Koated Nights.
He starts with saying that the housewives of Atlanta are wearing on his last damn nerves. First of all Kenya tried to sue him for something last year, and now it’s Sheree filing a restraining order against him in family and disability court. He explains that when you file a restraining order against someone, you feel that your life is in jeopardy. He says – “first of all bitch, we went out to a house that wasn’t even in your name – it was in your daughter’s name. So if anyone we’re harassing and stalking, it’s your daughter. Number two, the first Chateau Sheree video was filmed almost a year ago, the second was filmed around three months ago. I just saw you at a super bowl party three weeks ago and we hugging and taking pictures. That’s the first time I came in contact with this woman, and you wanna file a restraining order against me? Cause I went to some random house on a bus route on a busy street?” (You can see the photo of them together on the link I posted.) Kandi interjects here and says “well, it was messy”. He agrees, but continues. “I called my lawyers and both my parents are lawyers and my daddy told me to tell you to go f*ch yourself, and here’s why.” “I don’t know that lady, I haven’t met that lady, at best she has to prove excessive blogging about her.” He concludes by saying that they are thinking that she must have a show or something and she wants attention. Then he talks about TamaraTattles, and says that she’s white, and white women can do things that black women can’t (in case you’re not watching the video he’s dressed in drag.) That she talked her way into the house, and that personally he felt she went to far. His daddy had told him to make sure he stood on the curb and didn’t go on that ladies property when he went out there – which he did. Kandi is cracking up through all of this. He says he was at the bus stop. Then he says he’ll see her in court in 30 days. Apparently the moment someone files for a restraining order in Atlanta they are granted it for 30 days, so if they end up at the same party she can have him arrested. Although they have to find him and serve him. He then goes on to say that he plans to make an ass out her by coming into court in drag with a camera crew, and he’s going to make some money off of her. He concludes by saying that “if this is what you want, then come on honey restrain me,” in a soft voice.
And then there is the third blogger – StraighfromtheA. She says she didn’t even know that Sheree had filed against her, and wrote an entire (hilarious) blog about it that you can read here. If I understood Funky right that could be true – she probably just hasn’t been served with the papers yet. But they have history. Apparently Sheree is always sending her lame emails, phoning her, and leaving nasty comments on her site, and even tried to take photos of her when she was getting her weave. Like Funky, StraighfromtheA never set a foot on Sheree’s property, but unlike Funky these two ladies actually know each other.
So is this a press stunt? Including Funky and StraightfromtheA certainly makes it seem like one. We’ll have to stay tuned … but I’m laughing my ass off at the response of the bloggers.
Real Housewives of Vancouver Episode 4 “Second Chances and Second Thoughts” by NoMoreDrama
(all photos are screen shots from the show – slicetv)
We start with Amanda. She’s feeling old because she’s turning 34 so she goes in to get some work done. They call it a vampire face lift. She brings Robin and Jody with her. They start talking about it involving blood. I have issues with blood so I may have to fast forward. I think Jody may share my issues – take a look at her face. I also have issues with someone who is 34 thinking they are old. Robin interviews that if you’re open minded about improving or enhancing your looks – the sky is the limit. Is it just me or does she look orange?
Then they start to dish on the dinner the week before where Amanda and Ronnie got into it. Jody calls Ronnie “Rocky” because she said she wanted to beat up Amanda and Ioulia the Trucker for her dirty mouth (she said stupid shit – I think it’s the Canadian in Jody that finds that offensive). As Jody is complaining about Ronnie and how you can have a disagreement but not to the point where you hurt someone else, Robin brings up how Jody hurts Mary and isn’t kind to her. I think Jody was talking hurt in a literally sort of way – not emotional, so she was a little taken aback. In her talking head Jody says, “I don’t care about Mary Zilba, is she still alive?”
Amanda brings it back to her birthday. She says she’s going to invite Ronnie to her birthday, and Robin, and Jody. Jody says she’s bringing Mia, and Robin asks how that will work out with Mary there. Amanda says that no one has invited Mary.
Now it’s time for the vampire face lift. The girls are allowed to go in as long as they are quiet and don’t faint. I wouldn’t be able to promise that. There are long needles and blood. They draw blood from her arm and inject it into her face (I assume after adding filler). Amanda says it hurts. Jody feels faint and leaves. Amanda says it was well worth it because she looks smashing.
Ronnie, Mary, and Robin meet for lunch. Wow – they are at the Cactus club on the patio and you can see the beach in the background. Robin tells the girls about the procedure, and shows them a video on her phone. Mary voices over that it is hypocritical for Jody to support Amanda when she gets filler in her face, when Mary is supposed to be “stoned to death” for allegedly having filler cheeks.
Robin fills them in on the earlier conversation, and tells them that the girls feel that Ronnie was rude. Robin is being a bit of a snake here. Ronnie is pissed that they were insulting her behind her back. Robin also tells the girls that Amanda and Mia are best friends. I have a feeling Ronnie and Jody will be in a feud for a while. Ronnie tells the girls that Amanda has asked her to dinner, but she’s not sure if she wants to go.
Jody tells us that her son Joshua is heading off to Ryerson University in Toronto. She’s struggling with this, so she’s wearing her sombrero of strength as she clips flowers on her patio. He doesn’t want to take designer luggage to his dorm room. She says she should take the luggage because he may go skiing, and he points out the obvious – skiing in Toronto? That’s just not likely since its flat. Then she says he may to go Europe because he’s close to Switzerland. He rolls his eyes and says that’s not going to happen, and then asks her to take off her ridiculous hat. I like this young man. Then there is a touching scene where he admits that he’ll miss her. She says they’ll see each other once a month and he negotiates for a little more space. He actually says that she’s his idol because she works so hard. Oh my gosh what a sweet young man.
Mary and Amanda have coffee so Mary can apologize for walking out on the dinner. Amanda isn’t sure why she’s even meeting with Mary (since she’s on team Jody). Way to be open Amanda. Mary says she doesn’t hate Jody despite everything. Amanda voices over that despite everything Mary said she LIKES Jody (no she said she doesn’t hate Jody – big difference) and that Mary is nuts. They start talking about Ronnie, but Mary realizes she can’t say a word or Ronnie will go nuts so she changes the subject. Smart. Then Mary changes the subject and gives Amanda a gift. So Amanda feels obligated to invite her to the dinner, and Mary says she’ll give it some thought because she doesn’t want to ruin it.
Robin meets with the national anthem lady. So we’re supposed to believe that they’ve never talked about this before the coffee date? Robin says “I know, I know, the tape was awful and I didn’t get it”. But the lady says – “Who told you no? Because we didn’t say you didn’t get it. We said we were looking at other options.” That’s how they played it when they showed the conversation – but the implication was no. Anyway, the other option is a duet with another singer.
Now it’s time for Amanda and Ronnie to meet for sushi. Amanda voices over that she doesn’t want to leave with a black eye (they are painting Ronnie as violent this season.) Amanda apologizes for airing things out in front of the other women. Ronnie asks Amanda if she might think that she’s a little oversensitive. Amanda asks Ronnie if she might feel that she’s a little too harsh. Ronnie does not like people standing up to her. They talk about the difference between being honest and rude. Ronnie calls Amanda aggressive. Amanda says Ronnie is the aggressive one. Then they start eating. Ronnie apologizes for what she said and admits that she’s had a tough year. Maybe they were just starving, because all of a sudden they are friends.
Robin and Mary head off to do Robin’s second audition. Robin explains what’s going on to Mary – and says she understands how Mary might think that other options was a polite way of saying no. The other singer is Cole. Cole is a kid. His voice hasn’t even changed. Robin tries to tell Cole how to sing the duet – he looks confused. They audition and Cole is amazing. Robin is okay. After hedging and hawing, they finally tell Robin she can sing with Cole.
Jody is doing a photo shoot for Syle and Home. Jody claims she’s shy. Then she laughs. Jody is really a natural at this. I actually like Jody when she’s not talking about Mary.
It’s time for Amanda’s birthday party. Her boyfriend Kyle, and his sister and her husband are also going to this dinner. Amanda takes the time to prepare them. Ioulia, Mary, and Robin also head out in a limo. I catch a glimpse of a park close to where my son lives. The girls are really concerned that Robin’s dress is too short. You be the judge. Both Ioulia and Robin think something will go down. Mary says she’ll be out of there if it does. They arrive first, followed by Mia and Jody.
Jody and Mia completely ignore Mary and greet the other girls, so Mary feels alienated. Jody pulls out her phone and brings up a copy of an article about Mary and the Miss America contest. Ah – just when I was starting to think Jody was human. She reads it out loud. It’s gossip from 30 years ago. Mary says that at least when she did wear a tiara she earned it as Miss Ohio.
Mia interviews that Jody is allergic to Mary. Even if she wants to ignore her, she can’t help herself, and stuff just comes out of her mouth. What? Mia is making sense?? Now Jody says that Mary has a twenty-one year old boyfriend who is a hockey player. Mary denies this, but says she does know some hockey players. When Mia says she does too, Mary says of course she does, “in a very intimate way, I’m sure. “ That wasn’t nice Mary. Mia denies it and Mary starts talking about Mia’s reputation. Okay – so all this is happening before the party – what happened to Mary NOT wanting to cause drama? Then Mary says “nice nose job by the way, it looks great.” But not in a nice way. Mary voices over that she was off her game and lashed out more than she ever has. At least she admitted it. I will say that Mia kept her cool through all of this.
Amanda arrives and everyone is happy for a minute before Mary starts to explain that she needs to leave. Jody tells Amanda she just needed to call Mary out on her lies. Mary gets in a limo and leaves. Good for her. Wait – that was a red herring because she’s still there, but out in front of the restaurant waiting for Ronnie to arrive so she can recruit Ronnie onto team Mary. Ronnie is beginning to wonder if Mary just wants the attention. The others notice that Mary has left, and Amanda and Robin go outside to ask her to come back in. Finally they all sit down and open gifts. Of course Jody hates the gift Mary gave Amanda, even though Amanda explains that she saw it in the window and Mary bought it for her. Jody gives her a tiara.
Then Ronnie starts to stir the shit and asks what happened before they sat down. Someone says they don’t want to go there, but Jody says – you know what – I do want to go there. I have a feeling Mary will regret coming back in to the restaurant. Previews show she will eventually leave, and then the other ladies will talk crap about her for leaving.
The Walking Dead Episode 311: I Ain’t a Judas By BlueSky
For all of you dedicated Walking Dead fans, we saw in last week’s episode Andrea’s attempt to make peace between the Governor and Rick. She isn’t fully aware of all the nasty things the Gov is responsible for, so Andrea has no idea that there is no way these two will ever be friends. She is blonde after all, but I digress.
Rick is in the look out tower at the prison searching the woods with binoculars. He sees a glimpse of white but loses sight of it. His son Carl Jr. comes up to have a talk. He tells Rick it’s time to stop being the leader because Rick deserves a rest. Even Carl Jr. realizes Rick is stuck in crazy town with his visions of his dead mom.
Andrea is in Woodbury, convincing Milton that he has to help her go to the prison to broker a non-violence treaty between the two groups. Somehow she still loves the Governor too much to just let Rick kill him. She can’t get a vehicle to leave Woodbury, heck she can’t even get out of town, unless somebody helps her. Milton runs to his evil boss, the Governor to tell him about Andrea’s plan. Here is where the Gov shows his dark manipulative side, he tells Milton to help her! What does the Gov want? He wants to know more about what resources Rick has, how many people, guns – in fact he wants a complete floor plan of the prison if he can get it. Andrea, simpleton that she is, falls right into place as his pawn. So we see Andrea and Milton out in the woods, catching a walker that they can put a steel collar on with a metal “leash” to walk in front of them. This helps them to move through herds of walkers without getting into trouble. Andrea has learned this skill from Michonne. They catch a walker, stumbling through the woods looking for some flesh to bite. Andrea knocks him to the ground, while Milton puts the collar on his neck. Next, while Milton keeps the walker on the ground by lying on top of his back, Andrea gets out her handy dandy hatchet. She hacks off both of the walker’s arms, just below the elbow. Grabbing a just right sized rock from the ground, Andrea places it under the gaping mouth of the walker. She stomps on its head, to get rid of the teeth. It is gruesome. It’s times like these that I prefer to think of this walker as a dummy, artistically made by the Walking Dead props department! All the hissing & growling noises these walkers make drive my German shepherd crazy. He invariably comes over to me checking to see that I’m ok, and sometimes whines. Smart dog. He doesn’t like the walkers either. Uh oh here comes another random walker cruising by, in typical walker style. Dragging his feet, hissing to high heaven. Andrea has become an expert with that hatchet. One perfectly timed blow to the head, and the walker is really dead.
Milton and Andrea are about to continue their hike through the woods towards the prison. As they see a battered female walker coming at them, Tyreese appears to kill it with a sword blow to the head. Tyreese is shocked to meet Andrea, Milton & their defanged, unarmed & collared walker. Well it’s good to see that Tyreese, his sister & the other two guys have survived being evicted from the prison. Tyreese asks them if they have a camp….after telling them about Woodbury, Milton offers to lead them there. Now Andrea is on her own but she is more than capable of making it through the woods to the prison. We don’t know exactly how long it takes her to get there.
Hershel drops in to talk to the much hated Merle who is re-binding his knife attachment to his arm stump. He asks Hershel about his leg, how he lost the bit below the knee. They form a bond over their lost limbs. Hershel quotes the bible Matthew 5:30 “And if your right hand offends you, cut it off, and cast it from you…” Merle finishes the quote “for it is profitable for you that one of your members should perish, and not that your whole body should be cast into hell.” Whoah, Merle has read the bible. And can quote from it. Merle explains to Hershel that there was an excellent library in Woodbury, and he kind of misses it. While out looking for supplies for the town and killing people (remember the soldiers) I guess Merle had some down time. But he ain’t a Judas. Can Merle be trusted now – has he changed his wicked ways? Be careful there Hershel.
Andrea makes it to the prison. There are lots of walkers milling about as she calls out to Rick and the others. Rick, Maggie, Glenn, Carl Jr., Daryl and Michonne are standing in a line, combat ready. It’s clear they no longer trust Andrea. Just before becoming walker prey, they open the gate and let her in. Andrea is shocked at their appearance, and how they are treating her. Slowly she gains their trust. They left her on Hershel’s farm after all, not knowing if she ever made it out. If Michonne hadn’t saved Andrea, she would have been dead long ago. Michonne stares at Andrea with a look of disgust on her face. She tells Andrea that the Gov sent Merle to kill her after she left Woodbury. Glenn and Maggie tell Andrea how they were beaten. Andrea starts to get a glimmer of the truth.
Andrea meets the baby Judith or “little ass kicker” as she is nicknamed. She is sad to hear Lori died in childbirth, and about others that have been lost to walkers. Andrea and Carol have a heart to heart talk. Carol advises her to go back to Woodbury, give the Gov a night he’ll never forget, then pull a knife and kill him. That would end the problems with the evil Gov. Andrea is given a clunker to get back to the town. As a final gift, Rick gives her a revolver. That’s more than she got when she left Woodbury. Andrea makes it back to the border of the town, where the wall guards are pointing weapons at her. When they realize it’s Andrea, she’s allowed back in. That night, suave Gov is asking her questions about Rick and the prison. Andrea doesn’t realize how much info she is passing on. She tells the Gov that Rick’s group is in terrible shape, broken by the experience of taking over the prison. They are a hardened survivor group now. Andrea makes love with the Gov. After he is soundly asleep, she sneaks out of bed to retrieve a knife. But she just can’t kill him. Carol’s advice goes unheeded.
This Sunday, Michonne, Rick & Carl Jr. go on a trip to score more weapons. They need to prepare themselves for the coming battle. Watch a preview here:
Someone we saw in the first season will make a reappearance.
