Holy Crapballs – How Much Plastic Surgery has Adrienne Maloof Had? and Other Gossip by NoMoreDrama

Let’s start with Ms. Adrienne Maloof. Turns out she’s barely recognizable from her high school days, and not in a good way.  In hindsight, this isn’t that unexpected.  Just take a good look at her brothers.

Star Magazine has managed to dig up a photo of Adrienne from high school.  Wowza she’s had a lot of work done.   Unrecognizable – except that the old Adrienne looks a whole lot more like her family.

Meanwhile Sarcasm.net has some photos of the New Face of Vicki Gunvalson from the Real Housewives of Orange County.  Apparently Vicki had a nose job, chin implant, and lots of botox in the off season.  You can see the photos here.

Over on the other side of the continent – Ramona Singer proves that it’s a small world after all, tweeting this last night: “Having a great dinner in nyc @thegeneral and can u believe Aviva is a table away ?!?”  Or is it?  Are they filming??

______________

And Brandi Glanville‘s book Drinking and Tweeting is on the New York Times best seller’s list for the third week in a row – still first for e-books, and seventh overall for print/e-books.  That has got to help pay some of her bills.

Real Housewives of Atlanta by RamonaCoaster

wap-real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-5-atlanta-goes-vegasSo the ladies are in Los Angeles ready to board a bus to Vegas.  Kenya and Cynthia chat about the events the night before and how the ladies were talking about Walter. Kenya doesn’t mind talking to Cynthia about something personal but has a problem with Porsha and the lawyer.  They mock the lawyer acting all sweet to Kenya wondering what is up with that. Kenya’s Dr. put her on strict orders to cut out the stress in her life.  Kenya puts on lotion so she can’t be accused of being ashy.

Nene is taking a first class flight to Vegas instead of going on the bus because she has arrived and has a prior work commitment to fulfill that morning.  Kenya proposes another improv game in which they pick a card with someone’s name on it and you have to  imitate that person.  Cynthia talks about how hungry she is and everyone knows it is Kandi. The lawyer does the Miss USA twirl and wonders in her TH how many personalities Kenya has.  Kenya thinks the lawyer in order to impersonate a beauty queen should have beauty.  They talk about going to the Crazy Horse when they arrive in Vegas and Porsha asks if it’s a strip club.  Already Porsha is complaining she is not going to a strip club.  The lawyer has no problem with people wanting to be nude and finding lost souls.  She can search for her new clientele there.  Kenya starts wanting people to do stand up comedy.  Kandi obliges her and starts talking about orgasms and farting in your man’s face.  I guess that story is entertaining for people that appreciate fart stories.  They get off the bus into a minimart and the bus leaves them.  The bus driver comes back to tell them his credit card only takes certain stations.

Nene arrives in Vegas before them because they are stuck in traffic.  Nene has a nice view of the Eiffel Tower from her room and she’s complaining about always waiting for the ladies.

Porsha at the Mini-mart got pickles and ice cream.  The lawyer thinks she should pee on a rabbit and if the rabbit dies, you are pregnant.  Kenya asks why she wants to kill a rabbit which gets the lawyer all defensive and everyone wants to get off the bus.  They finally get to Vegas and get dressed up to go back into a limo.  Porsha thinks they are going to a burlesque show and when someone mentions strip club she does not want to go because Kordell would not be ok with that.  Nene thinks Porsha is being controlled by her husband and thinks she is a good judge of a situation.

Nene in her TH thinks Porsha shouldn’t be on a girls’ trip if she isn’t one of the girls and if Kordell wants to be a part of a girls’ trip, he can put a wig on. Other than that Nene doesn’t want to hear about what Kordell wants. Kandi mentions what happens in Vegas should stay in Vegas.  Nene states she worked at a strip club for years and she is getting annoyed. The lawyer thinks Porsha is a fool for thinking the Crazy Horse is a burlesque show.  Porsha says goodbye when they arrive at the strip club.  Nene thinks a woman should be able to make decisions for herself without involving her husband.  Kandi thinks Porsha should go and doesn’t have to tip the chicks if she doesn’t want to.  The lawyer compliments one of the strippers on how well she shaves herself and Nene thinks she is “about to take a bite out of Hello Kitty.”  I laughed out loud when I heard that.  Kenya is sticking the dollars right into the stripper’s boobs.  Nene talks about hating the strip club sometimes.  She invited Gregg to the strip club as a way of telling him she worked there.  Now that’s honesty for you.  When Nene and Gregg got married she had some strippers as her bridesmaids.  Nene feels for Porsha being with a successful man and losing herself in her husband’s life and his dreams.  Kandi doesn’t relate to Porsha’s life.  Kenya thinks if you are not living your dream you die a little every day. Definitely these ladies are not afraid to go after their dreams.  I think Porsha just uses Kordell as an excuse.  I don’t think it was Kordell’s dream for his wife to become a Real Housewife of Atlanta.

The next day Porsha is getting her makeup done and calling Kordell.  Kordell tells her not to feel pressured to do something she doesn’t want to do.  Cynthia thinks if Porsha had Kordell’s blessing to go to a strip club she would have been there.  The lawyer and Nene comes in after Porsha leaves and they talk about how Porsha made up Kordell as an excuse not to go to the strip club.

Nene got a backstage pass for the Jubilee show girls so they are on their way.  Nene wants to know the real reason why Porsha did not want to go to the strip club.  Porsha starts saying she is a Christian and the lawyer cuts her off saying Christ was a carpenter who hung out with prostitutes and whores and just because you sit in a pew every Sunday that does not make you a Christian.  Nene thinks Porsha’s husband is controlling but Porsha thinks he is just being traditional.  Porsha is proud that Kordell let her go on the girls’ trip.  The lawyer thinks everyone can’t be a lawyer or a doctor but the world does need a few dummies.  Sounds like the lawyer is getting fed up with the dummy.

Porsha is in the bathroom while everyone is discussing her marriage.  Kenya wants everyone to have fun and not judge.  Kenya points out in her TH that Porsha gets to shop and gossip – it’s a win-win.

They meet the girls and they get dressed up as show girls to do their routines.  Kenya does a little show and not realizing she was showing the girls that came out of her strapless top.  Then they stop by a jewelry store and a ring catches Kandi’s eye where she promptly takes a picture of it to send to Todd.  Kandi is beginning to like the idea of marriage more and more since she has been with Todd.

Then they go to a restaurant where Cynthia rides a bull without wearing panties.  Everyone was impressed and Peter must be one happy man.

They go back to hotel and they all get goodie bags filled with Kandi Koated Nights stuff.  They are all dressed in their nighties when Kandi whips out Kegel balls and how they work to strengthen the muscles for good orgasms.  I think it is good for women post-pregnancy.  Kandi wants to help Kordell become a father.  She put a pregnancy test in her goodie bag.  Porsha wants to take the test with Kordell.  Kandi passes a strawberry around as a game to see who has the sexiest bite.  Porsha of course is nervous about this.  When it was Kenya’s turn to bite the strawberry, the lawyer remarks “some one might like it but it doesn’t look like Walter did.”  Kenya did not like it one bit.  Then the next game is to put a question into a bowl where one person picks, reads and tries to answer it.  One of the questions was “What do you do when someone you thought was your friend, hurts you and then pretends it never happened.”  It was Kenya’s question and she wanted the lawyer to answer it.  The lawyer, in classic lawyer fashion, turns it around and says you say you got hurt but you hurt me.  She brings up Kenya coming to a party trying to impersonate her and being very childish.  Kenya fires back that she was talking about her having a mental illness.  Making personal attacks on her was far worse.  The lawyer asks if she needs an apology and Kenya says her apology doesn’t mean anything.  Nene says Kenya finally sees the lawyer for who she is and they can go back to being fake with each other again.

  • Jessica Hoel and John Erck (Surfers) are a dating couple from Huntington Beach, Calif. Aren’t they cute.. Does this dating couple (on TAR) ever end well for these people?

You can read more about them here… There you have it my friends. The cast that will or won’t entertain us for the next couple months. Each of those cast member links should take you to the CBS website where the photos are hosted.

Welcome back race fans. It’s been a couple weeks since we have seen each other on this subject. My apologies for that, I was out of town last weekend and just haven’t been able to get a clean watch of last week’s episode. What I can tell you about it is, that it was a double leg race. Hockey brothers had won the prior leg and Utah Dad tore his Achilles tendon trying to beat them. He had seen a doc who told him that a specialist has to look at it but it appeared he was out of the race. What little of last week’s episode I did see, Surfers gave up the express pass to Utah as agreed. Miracle of miracles, after using the express pass, which may have turned out to be a waste of it, they actually came in first on the leg. Not so fast boys, On the mat, Phil hands them another clue and tells them that the race continues from there. No rest for the weary. Let’s get to this week, shall we?

We pick up this week where it left off last week, in Christchurch New Zealand with Phil handing Utah their next clue. They are to fly 4000 miles to Bali and get to the Monkey forest where a ‘monkey’ will reveal their next clue. Surfers arrive and leave 2nd. Hockey brothers arrive 3rd and besties arrive 4th. They are followed by (in order) YouTube, Country singers, Derby moms, Newlyweds, and, dead last Chuck and Wynona (Alabama). Non elimination round. I’m thinking in this case, just because of that, that express pass may have been wasted. Newlyweds find a guy to let them use a phone to call the travel agent to reserve some seats BUT, they must get to the agency to pick up the tickets. The others are also going about their way to get their tickets, the fastest plain to Bali lands at 8:30am local time.

Apparently one cannot just go to the airport and get tickets. WTF? They have to be purchased via a travel agent. Really? The teams are all scrambling to get their tickets, a couple sets of teams have paired up it appears. In the end, the first 4 teams to arrive at the last pit stop are on the first flight which will land at 8:30 with a connection in Perth Australia. Hockey, Derby moms, and Alabama are on a second flight connecting through Kuala Lumpor and will arrive at 12:05. Surfers and YouTube are on a third flight connecting in Singapore also arriving at 12:05 in Bali. That third flight lands in Singapore and Surfers and Youtube get a faster flight out of there to Bali (probably less wait time) and should get there at 10:30 or something like that.

The first flight arrives in Bali and the race is on between the 4 teams on that flight (Utah, Newlyweds, Country, and Besties).. They are to get to the sacred monkey forest and find a coconut to hand to a monkey who will then reveal their next clue. Okay.. Apparently someone forgot to tell the monkeys what their job was. What the racers are supposed to do is grab a coconut out of a cage and put it somewhere on the ground hoping a monkey opens it. The first one who is successful at getting a clue from a monkey is Utah.

tar1 tar2The clue is a detour. Sandy Bottom or Fruity Top. Sandy bottom requires them to collect sand from the bottom of the river and carry it, up hill, 200 yards, to the brick maker. They have to fill a container (large bucket) to the designated line to get their next clue. That likely means several trips and this is wet sand. Fruity Top, they will build a religious offering to be carried to a temple and blessed by the local priest. Once the offering is placed, they get their clue.

Utah decides to do Fruity Top (probably a wise choice). Meanwhile back with the monkeys, the creatures are taking their good old time. Playing with their coconuts, scratching their butts, etc. So are the monkeys. Newlyweds are next to get the clue and they too decide to do Fruity Top. I wonder how many are going to sign up to haul sand uphill. Any bets? Besties are next followed by Country singers. They all do the fruity top challenge. One of the besties (I think Winnie) is a set designer or was, so she knows how to pay attention to details while studying the model they have to follow. I hope that works out better than their map reading skills. Why David, on crutches, is gathering the fruit for this task is beyond me but he is. The 4 teams begin putting their fruit sculpture together. Meanwhile, the second plane lands with the Surfers and the YouTubers. I don’t like any of these people to tell the truth with the possible exception of Jessica. Joey is talking baby talk to the monkey trying to coax him to peel the coconut and the monkey looks at him with the same stfu look on his face that I have right now.. About this time, we see the third plane land with the remaining teams. Hockey, Alabama, Derby and they all jump in cabs to go to the monkey park. Odd that into the 4th episode, we haven’t seen anyone get lost yet. Maybe I missed it last week. Surfers and Youtube finally get their clues and both also pick Fruity Top..

Spoke too soon. Derby and Alabama arrive at the monkey park while Hockey is stuck with a clueless cab driver. That, or he’s padding the fare by taking the scenic route. Nope.. He does not have clue of where he’s going. Must be his first day on the job. I thought everybody knew where the monkey forest was. Now Hockey brothers are in last place. Derby and Alabama are pretty lucky and get some monkeys who are all business in getting those coconuts open. At the fruit task, Besties finish first followed by Utah. The offering statue is then carried to a procession where a local woman will carry this heavy object on her head. They will then march it down the street to a temple where the priest will bless it, and them, after which they place the offering in it’s resting place. They then get their clue. Utah finishes this task second after Besties followed by the Newlyweds. As other teams begin to arrive, Country finishes their statue to the satisfaction of the line judge and can proceed.

Surfers are trying to get to the Fruity task and, ummm, okay… Either they don’t know how to give directions or the cabbie doesn’t know how to follow them. Where he drops them, ‘house #2’, we see workmen working on a house but no fruity task. Another misplaced cab driver. Probably on the wrong street. This is after He bragged about how ‘detail oriented’ he is. I love when the edit shows these people bragging about themselves because you know the make an ass of themselves moment is coming next. By the way.. Derby moms, earlier, said that they are good at grunt work. Guess which task they likely chose?

tar4 tar5Surfers… ahem… I think they have spent too much time in the salt water… Name of the task kiddos is, Fruity Top.. There is a worker standing there with a complete WTF look on his face as these two people begin to build a (very small) religious offering.. You saw above what this should look like. These two asshats begin to take a collection of what looks like nuts, berries, and hard candy and stack it on a leaf. Then they remember that they are supposed to be wearing Sarongs while doing this. He, while they are ‘building’ this thing, it’s about the essence of the offering. Now the only smart thing either of them said was look for the red and yellow. Do you think they found any red and yellow at this place? So after they get a couple sarongs, they find someone who speaks English. Jonathan asks him to ask the others if they have seen any other people that ‘look like us’.. Of course the answer is no so for a split second this idiot thinks he is in first place (but knows that isn’t possible).. Our braintrust of surfer people then learn they are in the wrong place. In all fairness to the cabbie, he got them to the right location apparently it is the racers that chose the wrong address. They finally get to the right place at about the same time YouTube does. I wonder where they’ve been all this time?

I wonder if Hockey ever got to the monkey park? Yes, finally they did. They offer their coconut to one of the monkeys and he takes off up a tree. I’m sorry folks but this task of the leg is a total clusterphuck. What if the monkeys aren’t hungry? These people could be waiting all day. Meanwhile, Derby moms have chosen the Sandy Bottom task. I think as soon as they saw what was going on, they should have gone to the other one. Let’s see how this works out for them. Surfers, he is talking about how this fruity task suits him because he’s anal retentive, as the local women are laughing their asses off at him. Youtube is good at looking at pictures and recreating them. Alabama shows up and are happy to at least see other people there indicating they may not be dead last. Hockey finally gets their clue and chooses Sandy Bottom as well. But wait… They ask their cab driver if he knows where that location is.. He says no. He does know however where the Fruity Top location is (yeah, Sure) so they switch tasks. Got all that?

tar6Back when the other 4 teams finished the task, they were sent to a beach to get their next clue. That clue is a roadblock. The member doing the roadblock has to go to a surf shop and find a surfboard with a familiar image on it. That image is of the first priest that blessed them at the wedding chapel at the beginning of the race. Once they find the board, they have to find their team mate and check in at the pit stop With the proper surfboard. Besties arrive first and Winnie does the task. She first has to find the surf shop. Utah is in there next and Conner does the task. Winnie finds what she thinks the right one is (She does know what she’s looking for) but I think she grabbed the wrong one. If that’s the case, they will have to go back and try again. I do believe Conner found the right one (there are probably enough for all teams to do the task).

Over at the river, Derby moms are loaded up with sand (they have to scoop it from the river bed and pour it into their baskets). Then they discover how hard this task really is as they climb those stairs to the brick mason. At least one more trip is required for them. At the Fruity top challenge, Surfer John wasn’t anal retentive enough because he’s put the offering together incorrectly. Looks fine to me but I’m not there looking at it. YouTube appears to be doing a good job and I’m guessing they will get out of there first. Hockey brothers finally arrive so it looks like they may be back in the race.

At the surf shop, I’m wrong, Conner has not found the board or doesn’t know he has. I really can’t tell because he’s still searching. Winnie is looking for Phil with her board (she needs her partner too) and runs back past the shop where she asks Conner if he has seen Phil. He asks her what he’s looking for and she offers to show him if he guarantees that Besties will hit the mat first. He says know, she says screw you and runs off. Not before he gets a peak at the image on her board though. What if they are both wrong now? Winnie runs down to the beach, Newlyweds have arrived, Conner goes back to his dad and the two of them make their way to the mat. Turns out it’s the right image, and Utah wins the leg of the race. First place. They win $5000 each and are definitely (for now) still in the race. Newlyweds take Third and Country has arrived at the beach.

Meanwhile……… Back at the fruit stand, Trouble in surfer paradise. The bickering about how to proceed has begun as Youtube gets the go ahead. Chuck, the taxidermist is good at assembling things like this and the hockey brothers look like they may have a shot at second to last. Surfers (remember Mr Anal Retentive detail man), have decided to switch detours instead of using their express pass. What’s the matter Johnny boy? Too much detail? I think you have too much product keeping your hair up in the air and it has seeped into your brain. I’m not even going into anymore of his rambling tripe, Jessica is the smart one of the pair so if she has something to say, I’ll let you in on what it was. Over at the task, Alabama finishes and are on their way. At the Beach, whichever country girl was doing the roadblock, picks the wrong surf board. They’ve all encountered Bali she says so that’s the image she picks. Okay.. Surfers decide to choose what to do based on how far along the Derby moms are. At that time, they are shown finishing the task. Alabama finishes the Fruit task and are on their way to the beach.

Country tries to check in with their Bali board and Phil says no dice, go back and try again. I don’t know which is which yet so, the one not doing the task note the difference between Seen, and what the clue really says, encountered. Well, they’ve all Seen Surfers so she grabs another wrong board. I think she may schlep every board there back to Phil before she gets the right one. YouTube is taken to the wrong beach. Derby moms are complaining that this is probably the longest leg in the history of the race (4 days now). Alabama is happily delivered to the proper beach, they just want to knock out the hockey brothers. Caroline (I think) is having a breakdown after being turned back twice.

Youtube is running up the hill to get to the right beach (probably could have run Along the beach) and Alabama passes them in the cab. Caroline (again, I think), just grabs a board with ‘some guy’ on it and low and behold, It’s the right one! Team number 4 to check in. Would have been team number 4 if she had done it right to begin with so at least she got a good workout up and down those stairs (I couldn’t have done it).

When all else fails, read the instructions. Surfers are doing the sand task, it’s hard work but no where near the pain in the ass that fruit sculpture was. Chuck grabs the wrong surfboard but has apparently forgotten that he’s supposed to get his wife on the way to meet Phil so he running all over hell and back looking for Phil. Derby mom grabs a board, I didn’t see which one (it was wrong), YouTube Joey grabs the right one. Joey shows her the right one after they are checked in to 5th place. At least she knows what she’s looking for. Meanwhile, I think Chuck has jogged back to Alabama. Come On guys, You Can Not let the Surfers catch up and beat you. As the others are running around looking for Phil (this is a marked path), Surfers arrive. Mona, now with the right board knows where to go but she’s saying nothing. Chuck sneaks in behind her (I don’t know where he came from) and Hockey brother is just as clueless as Chuck. So now, at least, they’ve all found the proper beach.

Well, Derby moms take 6th place, and as I said earlier, at least Chuck knows where Phil is now because he has the wrong board. Meanwhile, Hockey brother has noticed where Phil is. Lucky shot, I think he just grabbed any old board, and they Hockey Brothers take 7th. So, Now it’s a race between Surfers and Alabama for 8th place. All that mess to get here. Earlier, Surfers said they may use the express pass if this task gets too difficult. It’s getting dark and as of yet, he hasn’t found the surf shop. Mona did not share which picture Chuck was looking for but at least Chuck knows where the finish line is. Guess what Race Fans… Chuck gets it right, they take 8th place leaving Surfers dead last.

Now, I can’t let this pass. It is dark now and Johnny boy comes trotting back to the staging area where all the team mates were waiting. The sun has set and he’s empty handed even though he was at the surf shop. If this is a non elim round, I’m going to shoot Phil in the head. Dumbass surfer dude is arguing with his girlfriend about him wanting to play smart, he’s delusional enough to think there is still another team out there. She corrects him. He finds a board, of course it is the wrong one, Mr Detail, he wants to look at the other boards that are already there, Phil says No. Now surfer boy has a flashlight strapped to his head looking for the right one. He finds it.. Now, I’m not sure exactly what he meant but he doesn’t get how utilizing the express pass would have helped him at this point. I hope it means since they are dead last anyway, might as well finish it right. He finds the board, completes the leg of the race and they are gone. Phil notes that this is probably the only team to get eliminated holding an express pass. Jessica in addition to looking disappointed, looks pissed as Mr Detail is rambling on trying not to look like a complete asshole for having that distinction with the express pass. He has zero regrets because he doesn’t need a million dollars, Jessica feels let down. Phil shrugs and says Oy Vey as they are walking away. I hope Jessica punches Mr Detail in the dick. That has to be THE biggest moron I’ve personally seen on this show. That’s all I’m saying about that asshat from this point forward.

That’s all folks. Watch it commercial free here if you like, contact me if you have trouble with the link. Or watch it atCBS.COM or On Demand if you have it.

Peace, MTH aka WTFIJeff

160 Responses to Holy Crapballs – How Much Plastic Surgery has Adrienne Maloof Had? / Real Housewives of Atlanta Recap / Amazing Race Recap

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. NMD I hope you’re still enjoying vacation.

    How much plastic surgery has Adrienne had? Wow! Does she even remember what she was born to look like?

    Well it looks like its going to be a nice sunny day. I hope so where you are. Have a great day.

  2. T-Rex says:

    WOW! The HoofMaloof has had some extremely extensive work! Looks like a nose job, chin implants, brow lift and cheek implants, she had the major work done years ago, so she has also probably had a face lift, and lypo on the neck probably in the last couple of years

    • Rebecca says:

      Can’t wait for her to blame Lisa for digging up the HS photo….

    • chismosa says:

      She looks like George Maloof naturally I think the most. The other 2 brothers looked like they got some little work done

      • chismosa says:

        And meant to add I’m surprised as Lebanese women are some of the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. But I know she’s only 1/2 or not even fully 1/2.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          True about beautiful Lebanese women being beautiful. My most beautiful friend is lebanese. Her kids are 1/2 and are gorgeous!

          • chismosa says:

            Lainey I will try to catch you a bit later but wanted to tell you that your border collie passing stories were so sad and beautiful at the same time.
            My biggest biggest hugs to you !

            • LaineyLainey says:

              Hey there, thanks!! I always made her feeding/watering the first thing I did every morning. That’s kinda strange now. Weird things make me miss her…There was a hoot owl by my window last night; ordinarily she would have been barking up a storm at that owl. That would have been irritating as I would have to get up out of bed to go put her in the garage on those barking nights when the night critters got her all excited.

  3. HuskerHuny says:

    Happy, happy, happy Monday to all! Eleven inches of snow awaited me in my driveway this morning. I should have known something was up when I heard my neighbor’s snowblower going at 3 a.m. But I made it to work and looking forward to the 50 degree days at the end of the week.

    I have so much to say about RHATL, but I’m still so grossed out about so many things. I need to let my thoughts settle and chime in later.

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Wow! 11 inches! That’s really saying something that you made it to work. Here the rain froze overnight, so we have frozen puddles. The wind is blowing like crazy and it’s bone chilling cold to be out. Yuck!

      When I heard the lawyer say that not everyone could be a lawyer or doctor and the world needs dummies too, well, it made my evening. I laughed my head off.

    • Powell says:

      Husker all I can say is WOW to 11inches of snow. No fun shoveling that.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      OK, now I don’t feel like such a debbie downer/old fogey…these women gross me out, too. Esp Phae-Phae and Kandi. Wasn’t sure if it was just I who was not as amused as usual by Atlanta…but a little more disgusted than usual by Atlanta. Class it up, ladies.

  4. LA_Debra says:

    Holly crapballs — love that ! I sure hope you are enjoying your vacation NMD. And thank you for all the updates while you are enjoing the sun and fun.

    And thank you Ramonacoaster for the recap. In real life, I don’t think I’d be friends with any of the Atlanta ladies. Just not that much in common. But I’m not entertained by all the judgemental bullsh!t either. I thought I could watch with Kim gone, and I did for an episode or two. But they are back to tearing eachother down to make themselves feel good. I don’t like that.

    And thank you Jeff for the Amazing Race recap. I enjoy your POV much more than the show! Please give the hound a biscuit 🙂

    • chismosa says:

      Yes thanks Jeff for the recap. I was shocked and OH SO HAPPY that cocky ugly sob is gone. His smile and arrogance made me want to kill myself. This ending and the project runway endings recently have been quite exciting.

      Bali is beautiful. My mother was supposed to go visit right after 9/11 but had to cancel due to the increased security and lots of terrorist activity in Indonesia around then but she and my dad went to Tahiti like 40+ years ago so so far this race has been to many of their locales ! Ha

    • trudie says:

      When that team ended up in someone’s yard making the “offering,” it reminded me of a time eons ago when my husband and I were in California on vacation. We drove along the coast highway. Every time we would see a lot of cars on the side of the road, we knew it had to be a beautiful place to take photos. So, we are driving along, see a bunch of cars on the side of the road, park and start following the people. Turns out we crashed a barbeque!

    • HuskerHuny says:

      How do you get eliminated on Amazing Race while hold an Express Pass? I am without words . . . So happy for the son and dad – Achilles tear and all and they keep racing. But it will catch up with them unfortunately. But they are taking home some pretty great gifts.

      • chismosa says:

        and they’re going to tithe some of that right onto their “””church””””! 😦
        That son better wise up and take off that Lance Armstrong armband.

        I have to say, as a watcher of this show since season 1, this was a crazy crazy EXIT. For them to show Phil be like ‘oy’- was a lot. Poor Phil and his eyebrows on this exit, ha ha!

    • Powell says:

      LA_Debra Holy crapballs? LOL that’s funny. 🙂

      • LA_Debra says:

        To the Bat Cave ! — I wish I could blame Holly Crapballs on the auto spell… but I can’t 😦

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I loved “holy crapballs” too…ok, that sounds weird, esp since I’m ranting today about Atl being grosser than usual. More gross than usual. LOL!! But it reminded me of Batman and Robin. The Adam West version. wham!!! bam!!!

  5. WindyCityWondering says:

    In Adrienne’s defense – she looked very unfortunate in HS – the work she has had done still isn’t natural looking but at least now we know why.

    • True WCW, and I agree….but many women look different and are awkward in high school but grow into their natural beauty and end up stunning. Who knows how Addie may have looked as an adult before all that unfortunate surgery. But also….beauty starts within…so there is that! I wonder if she was ever beautiful inside so it could reflect on the outside.

    • pat says:

      I think she would have grown into her features. Maybe a nose job and fillers would be to her advantage, but she went wayyyy overboard into a very unnatural look.

      It’s weird that it’s so hard to find early pics of her. Doesn’t anyone from her high school or college still have their yearbooks?

      • Kansas Girl says:

        There would be high school and college yearbooks. She couldn’t have bought and burned them all. The college archives would have the college yearbook. Someone needs to get out and research! (Heck, I drove to the state capitol to look up Taylor’s birth record!)

        • Powell says:

          KG you did? The truth prevails huh?

          • Kansas Girl says:

            Indeed. She was born in the Independence, KS hospital, as her home town of Cherryvale doesn’t have one. There was a nice write-up in the Independence newspaper, giving not only details, but also naming both sets of grandparents. Newspapers are on microfilm (and some are now digital), and open to the public at state archives and many public libraries.

    • nyc mama says:

      That picture was from when she was 15, an awkward age for anyone, so I wonder what she would have grown into without the surgery.
      She may have been very pretty and only needed minor surgery. With the amount of surgery she had she turned herself into a cookie cutter BH wife.

      • So agree ladies! I wonder if she regrets any of the surgery.

      • chismosa says:

        I watched that Nightline episode on going overboard on the plastic surgery and fillers and they showed a doctor in the California/LA/BevHills area who said that they used the code words “Beverly Hills” for a patient who was overdone. That is hysterical to me!

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Now we know why her eyes look so odd. She changed the shape of her eyes. She had beautiful Lebanese eyes before and now they are just nondescript holes in her face holding in her eyeballs. She might have grown up to be a real beauty. A slight nose job would have been enough. But noooooo….she erased the beautiful heritage from her face. Reminds me of M.Jackson. No sign of his rich beautiful heritage on his face after all of his surgeries.

        • chismosa says:

          Lainey- that is what I think Kim Kartrashian has done too, her too much filler and/or cheek implants have made her eyes even smaller and narrower than they were. She has had a TON of work for someone so young and who was naturally beautiful IMO. But, narcissism and ego drove her to more more more.

      • Powell says:

        ITA.

    • T-Rex says:

      A lot of us looked unfortunate in HighSchool, but blossomed naturally. Our 20th Reunion was really amazing to see how many girls grew into STUNNING beauties after high school with no surgeries. She should have let herself age a bit before going under the knife, I realize maybe a nose job could be explainable, however she has had chin and cheek implants added and a brow lift, in addition between some pics of her 10 years ago or so and today it’s clear she has also had a face lift. This of course is just her face, we know she has breast implants and just speculating but she has probably had some body re-scultpturing done as well.

      • chismosa says:

        i always wonder about the age of the ‘nosejobs’ — i know doctors want you to wait until your nose completely is done forming- i am always so surprised it is so young!

        I agree with what you said completely.

        • pat says:

          The nose and ears continue to grow as we age. Not sure what that means for Adrienne, but I would think having that much plastic surgery overall, is going to be a nightmare to maintain as she ages. Even boob jobs need to be redone every ten years or so, or at least many Docs recommend getting them replaced. Maybe that’s just to sell more boobs.

        • T-Rex says:

          Personally I think you should wait until at least Age 18 for the nose jobs, a lot of highschool girls that had the nose job in high school have regretted it completely, because it “changed” their uniqueness because those jobs LOOK like nose jobs very seldom do you see a nose job that doesn’t look like a nose job.

  6. Kathie says:

    Long time lurker here…Is it just me or does anyone have trouble watching all the facial expressions the lawyer makes ? I think she is a strange one.

    • pat says:

      I was thinking the exact same thing last night!! She makes the strangest facial expressions!!

    • trudie says:

      Welcome!

    • chismosa says:

      Efedra? Yes can’t stand them! It’s her passive aggressive way instead of just saying what she is thinking she makes “faces” IMHO

      • LaineyLainey says:

        The faces make me laugh as a t.v. viewer, but if I had to work with her, hang out with her, those faces would get on my nerves. I have always found her humorous, but her digs at Kenya are mean-spirited. Kenya is soooooo sensitive, huh? I like that she’s really capitalizing on the whole “gone with the wind fabulous” thing. You know someone like Kenya… she’s going to have her haters regardless, no matter what she does… so she may as well join those who make fun of her and have fun with it and make a little money while they’re laughing she can exert a little bit of control and maximize the exposure she’s getting right now. The video is hilarious. She may be a little unstable; but I like her.

        • Powell says:

          Right Lainey. Her expressions match what she’s saying so I find it funny.

        • $25,000 says:

          I usually love Phaedra, but her southern bell schtick has taken on a nasty edge lately. Kenya wasn’t the only one she was mean to. I thought her calling Porsha a dummy was out of line too and I don’t like Porsha. I think Porsha is challenged in the intelligence department too, but that doesn’t make it it OK for Phaedra to call her a dummy on TV. I thought all of them were over the top with Porsha. Who cares why she doesn’t want to go to the strip club? If she’s not comfortable going for whatever reason I think the others should leave her alone.

          • pat says:

            Phaedra kinda lost me this season, too. She’s more skank thank southern belle these days. I didn’t understand what really happened with the deal with Kenya, but something didn’t seem right there, and both Nene and Cynthia seemed to come down on the side of Kenya with that. They seem to know Phaedra does shady deals.

            • Powell says:

              That Southern Belle thing she likes to say, I have never liked that because Phaedra is not a SB. She’d like people to believe she is. I believe it has a lot to do w/trying to make her parents think she’s so virtuous. Remember S1 & her pregnancy? When she was in delivery her mom said something to the effect that her kids don’t have children out of wedlock. That was the main reason for not “knowing” how far along she was & having the baby in her 7th mth since the babies lungs were fully developed. Then her doc busted her in delivery when Kandi was w/her & the doc said Phaedra was full term. All so her mom doesn’t know she was standing in front of the minister 2 mths pregnant. And how many Southern Belles have been pregnant when they walked down the isle over the decades? 🙂

            • $25,000 says:

              Hi Pat,
              I felt like something was hinkey with the Kenya deal too. I have no way to judge the distribution deal that Kenya put together for Phaedra, but I am sure that having a good distribution deal can translate into lots of sales. If the deal were good enough, I think Phaedra was foolish to turn it down even if it meant giving Kenya a percentage.

          • Powell says:

            $25,000 I don’t think it was going to the strip club. I’m not a fan of them either & while watching that I was wondering would I go to hang out w/the girls or would I not go? I still don’t know. I think it was Porsha saying “Cordell wouldn’t appreciate it”. I was like what? Cordell? What about you? And also he “let her go” to Vegas. It sounds like,Alexis & Jim. Husbands/Wives discuss & male a Jr decision I suppose but just the way Porsha said it, it sounds like & I believe that Cordell makes the decisions & Porsha has to obey. She kept saying “Cordell is traditional”.

            • $25,000 says:

              Hi Powell,
              I agree that Kordell probably is the one who makes the decisions in that household. That type of marriage wouldn’t work for me at all. If I were concerned about a friend allowing her husband to control her, I wouldn’t sweat the small stuff however. Whether she goes to the strip club or not seems like a small matter to me. I would wait until there is a matter of greater importance at issue though before I broached the matter with my friend. I felt like the women were just reaching a bit to pick on Porsha for that.

        • chismosa says:

          Lainey, i’m with you girl- i’m so glad you said it. I know Nene is polarizing to many (well, not as much as Kim i hope??)- but I adore her for some reason, and i honestly don’t have that big a problem with Kenya.
          Could you imagine they didn’t have Kenya on this season–? Nene is barely on- there would be NOTHING going on!!!
          I think Phaedra went too far in saying what she said about Kenya, i really do. I get that she’s upset over the copycat video but her hiding behind her southern gentle lady schtick is getting old and covers up cruel comments.
          At least Kenya tells it to you straight UP front and doesn’t hide behind lame eye-rolls like Kandi and Pheadra.

    • iceNfire says:

      Hi Kathie – Welcome 🙂

    Good a.m. and a big THANKS for the recaps. In the category of crazy, Kenya is my current fave housewife! Bravo hit casting gold with her, IMO. It bugged me when that silver spoon airhead
    Porsha mocked Kenya’s age. K’s video spoof of it is hilarious!

      i’m with you, i love Kenya, pure gold. So many complain about how boring the season is- but the ratings i thought were through the roof?

  8. Good Monday Morning! Dang this time change is kicking my ample backside again this morning. Coffee won’t do it today, so I am downing energy enhancing herbs too! Gotta get going!

    NMD – thanks for the new blog and scoop. Wowzer on those Addie pics! I am glad you are enjoying vacation….and thank you for thinking of us in your spare time! Have a blast!

    RamonaCoaster – thanks for the recap. I just can’t watch these ladies anymore, haven’t for awhile, but love to read your recaps and get a good chuckle. Nicely done!

    MTH – you know how I love to read every word, tho I do not watch! I think reading the recaps is almost better! Thanks for your efforts!

    Busy start to the week. The sun is shining, and temps in the 80’s for later in the week. Yup, Spring is stepping in! Have a lovely day everyone!

    New post, “Understanding ~ And The Puddle In The Street”, + all the goodies is up at my place. Enjoy!

    Have you ever…googled “maloof goof”? try it.

  10. AZGirl says:

    Thank you NMD for the “Holy Crapballs”. Poor Adrienne. I can see a nosejob and some work around her eyes but she really restructured her entire face. That must have been really painful. I am at an age where I would love to get some work done on my neck. I HATE MY NECK. But I don’t have cash and I am a wimp when it comes to surgerical procedures. So alas AZGirl is going to age gracefully.
    I read a great article in the AZ Republic after the Oscars and Jane Fonda. The writer brought up a point about “Why is it wrong to look 75?” Jane is 75 and everyone knows that. They did a side by side comparision with Jane, Dame Judi Densch and Dame Maggie Smith. British actresses were more beautiful IMHO.

  11. Joymama says:

    Thank you bloggers!

    Confession: I laughed out loud when I read ‘punch him in the dick’.

  12. HuskerHuny says:

    O.K., here’s one thought that I have about last night’s RHATL . . . who are these women to tell dear little dimwitted Porsha that her husband is controlling her and she shouldn’t let him do it. Did it ever occur to these know-it-all women maybe Porsha is very happy in her marriage and has no problem following her heart as to what her husband would like for her to do? Brings to mind Tamra, Heather and Gretchen passing their highly sought opinions when it came to Alexis and her marriage last year while they were in Costa Rica. Hello – Alexis is happy and is still married. Tamra’s on her third marriage and Gretchen has one behind her and is living with a housewife wanna-be. Who are they to give advice?

    What comes to my mind, first of all, these judgments are coming from some very unhappy women who are not married, have been in bad marriages/relationships or are unhappy in their current situations. Leave Porsha (and Alexis for that matter) alone and quit telling them how they should act. In my marriage, if I feel there’s something that my husband would rather I not do, I generally don’t do it and vice versa. It’s called respect for the other’s feelings. That’s why I’ve been married for almost 32 years and only once.

    I do enjoy a girl’s night out, but would my group of girls go to a strip club? A big oh no on that one. But should they decide to go to one some night, I would do as Porsha did and bow out. But does that mean that my husband is controlling me and that I don’t follow or chase my dreams? Absolutely not. I do as I please and that’s what Porsha did. I think she showed strength of character and didn’t fold to the pressure of the others. That took backbone especially with that group. It would have been much easier for her to go along and then suffer the consequences later at home. Bravo Porsha!

    Here’s a thought . . . maybe it’s Porsha’s dream to be married to a man who loves her and is financially well off enough so that she can stay home, have babies and live a rather care-free life. What’s wrong with that? More power to her. I haven’t heard her say one word about being controlled, not having freedom to do as she pleases, etc. Until I hear those words from her mouth, I will continue to think she’s living the life she wants to – just like Alexis.

    Now can I say, you’re in Las Vegas with a few girlfriends and the best thing you can think of doing is going to a strip club? I have thrown in the towel officially on this show. They show me nothing but how not to act or treat people. This show went officially into the gutter last night and I will not join them. Unless there’s a big change of personnel, I will not be dialing in again. Last night’s show made me want to take a shower; I felt dirty. Bravo – find the higher road and take it!

    • pat says:

      HuskerHuny, ITA re Porsha actually demonstrating a strong backbone in not caving to the peer pressure to do something she didn’t want to do. Especially when it’s being leveled at her by Nene! I thought the strip club was gross, myself. I’ve only been to Vegas a few times, and have never been to a strip club and have no interest.

      I do think Porsha’s traditional, conservative relationship with her husband crosses a line, at least from what Bravo shows us. It works for her, for now, but he treats her like a child.

      • chismosa says:

        I think the issue is that he talks very condescendingly to her not as an equal but like he is chastising his child. He doesn’t seem to let her say anything and put her thoughts into any conversations either. This is just from what we’ve seen. He seems odd to me. I wouldn’t put it past that those rumors about him were true – someone so uptight is bound to have some little CRAZZZZZY secrets about themselves.

        I think nene was being open and honest and said her piece and let it be. That was it. She has had experiences with domestic abuse so I know that issue is near and dear to her — she may be like what i call alcoholics in recovery are– quick to find a problem in someone else that may not be there. But I think she laid it out very nicely for someone who seems dimwitted and naive. I hate to say but she does seem that way

        • HuskerHuny says:

          I don’t think you have to apoligize for your opinion of Porsha and her lack of maturity. I think we all see it, even though she seems to be kind (just don’t have ashy skin!).

          I have no love for Mr. Kordell Stewart since his quarterbacking days at the University of Colorado, but my Huskers beat his sorry butt after he and a few of his teammates ran their mouth in the 1994 season. I’ve been laughing ever since.

          I don’t deny that he definitely talks down to Porsha. I think he saw her face, her bank account and her IQ and thought that this was the perfect woman; someone who really wouldn’t challenge his thoughts or actions. But it takes two to tango and I believe she’s O.K. with that. He takes care of her and she wants for nothing. I’m just saying that it’s not anyone’s place to tell her what they think of her situation unless she asks for it and so far, I haven’t heard anything out of her saying such. That’s all!

          • chismosa says:

            i get ya Husker, i see what you mean, yes we judge all these women all the time, you’re right. and we enjoy it 😉

            Do you think Porsha has a bank account, i am confused by what you said- did she come from a wealthy family? I don’t really know

            I just see how she is going to tear up next week when he is yelling at her about how things are going to run when babies are in the house and it doesn’t look PRETTY.
            I honestly think the ‘older’ ladies saw something that maybe even the cameras couldn’t convey and wanted to be open and nice to her. If anyone had any personal problems with Porsha it was only Kenya and she was on her BEST behavior IMHO.
            What i like about Nene is she said her piece, you don’t have to agree- she offered it, then shut the hell up about it. Done.

            Could you imagine if they went to a MALE STRIP CLUB??? For sure she would have had the vapors over that and Kordell finding out. ha ha

    • chismosa says:

      I think it’s so funny that this episode threw the show in the gutter for you- did you not see all the male strippers of seasons past?! This is nothing compared to that IMHO!!lol

      And I thought Kandi, Cynthia, Nene, and Efedra (uh I have my doubts on them personally)– all are in successful relationships? Or am I missing something? Kenya yes is still looking for her man

      • HuskerHuny says:

        You’re correct – it’s been in the gutter for a long time. I guess I don’t think of women wanting to watch male strippers that strange (though I never have myself). It was them watching and putting money in the female strippers ‘attire’ that really rubbed me the wrong way (sorry for the use of words!).

        In the past, Kandi and Cynthia had children without marriage, Nene was in an abusive marriage, Kenya is in her 40s and seems to be a bit desparate to find a husband and Phaedra’s past relationships I’m not sure of. I was just thinking it was a bit of the pot calling the kettle black. I’ve seen nothing that leads me to believe that Porsha is unhappy and doing anything she doesn’t want to do. When I hear Porsha ask for an opinion, then I’m all for anyone giving their two cents – that’s all!

    • Beckygrey says:

      I believe that Porsha is young and hasn’t quite come into herself. Her desire to do as her husbands wants is her choice. When we as women are afforded the opportunity to do anything and be anything, that also includes a homemaker. The decision to represent her family and marriage they way she wanted is, in the word of Bobby Brown “My Prerogative” I think the girls should just back off of her and be women that support women no matter what their choice (as long as they aren’t being abused)
      NeNe, though I’m sure she is coming from a good place, since she was once in an abusive relationship , should respect Porsha as an adult, with the ability to make choices for herself. (I cringe when I say that..)
      But NeNe obversion to Porsha is that while she wants to portray “Mrs. Innocent” on camera , Porsha is a video vixen in rap videos and has been out there. But then again, whose business is it if she wants to change her Public Image, she’s now a married woman.
      Respect yourself and your marriage!

      • chismosa says:

        i didn’t know that about Porsha- she was a video vixen? Hmmmm.
        okayyyyyyyyyyyyyy there Kordell. Why you chose that then??? Don’t add up!

    • Catseye says:

      I completely agree with you about the OC housewives. I think they ARE very jealous of Alexis and Jim’s marriage. I don’t see Alexis as controlled (or bragging about anything either). Not as much as Heather, who controls Terry (ordering him to leave the table, while at lunch with her agent/butting into his private conversation with Jim). Brags non-stop (she’s an actress/ stand-up comedienne/singer) and is a show-off, strutting around with a Chanel bag at the beach.

      • pat says:

        A little off the subject of her marriage, but I don’t know entirely what to think about Alexis. Maybe the new season will shed better light. Seems the other cast members, while trying not to “break the 4th wall” were insinuating that Alexis is rude to the crew, to restaurant staff, basically anyone deemed beneath her. And that she’s very materialistic (which is more than a little hypocritical, coming from some of those ladies).

  13. catmom1 says:

    Looks like next weeks (3/18) RHOBH will get interesting. Here’s the viewers guide from Bravos site A SHOT THROUGH THE HEART

    Adrienne throws an eye-popping party to launch her new vodka line, but her relationship with Paul worsens, even as Paul tries to impress her by dressing up as a tree. News of their separation reaches the shocked women as they head toward Lisa’s housewarming party/vow renewal. Drama develops quickly, as Brandi confronts Marisa about talking behind her back. Things get uglier when Brandi’s enemy Faye interrupts. Trouble is clearly about to ensue.

    • pat says:

      Oh, NO, not Faye again!!!

    • T-Rex says:

      The HoofMaloof farce is just beyond me, Look you losers you have been separated at this point in filming for MONTHS! Legal paperwork for a “formal legal” separation doesn’t spring up overnight, that crap takes weeks, if not months to get the details sorted out. Now, I can imagine the ladies were shocked as the HoofMaloof has been lying for quite some time about the fact that she and Paul were separated. Oh and yes as Catmom says somebody just drop a house on FayeKR and be done with it, have to second that emotion!

    • Beckygrey says:

      Well at least we know that Marisa and Brandi are in a good place…no matter what. If we ignore that other people in the statement, or ff when they are on screen or take a potty break when they walk on the set…it will be as though they didn’t exist. Just like Paul’s former wife)

  14. Sus says:

    I shouldn’t say anything about plastic surgery because I’m the kind of person that couldn’t ever sign a consent form for surgery if it was voluntary. I live by eating an apple a day and never going to the doctor unless there’s something medically wrong that doesn’t go away on its own. Once you get on the medical wheel, it’s hard to get off. I’m finally down to once a year appointments after cancer. I have no desire to go more than that!

    With my luck, I’d go in for a nose job and come out with a disaster. The surgeon would have a tiny cold and sneeze just as they were cutting and my nose would be gone. I’d end up with some fake thing like Michael Jackson. Everything would have been fine if I had just left well enough alone!

    On another note, I’m very bitter this morning. I’ve been reading all weekend that Elizabeth Hasselback was getting the boot on The View and Baabaa Walters denied it on the show this morning.

    To top it off, CourtTV is only on for two hours before they start that TruTV car chase crap.

    • chismosa says:

      Sus are you bitter because Hasselback is staying or because she’s not leaving? I saw Bawbwas defense of that rumor and it seemed a little forced to me. I don’t knowwwwwwww yet what to believe on her.

      Ps I am excited Dr Oz is FINALLY doing a show against antibiotics. I can’t wait. I’m never taking them again so I hear you!

        Meant are you bitter because she is staying or bc she is not going. Ughhh, sorry

      • Sus says:

        Bitter that Elizabeth is staying. I couldn’t tell if Baabaaa was sincere or not in liking her. I know Bill Geddes is very conservative so he loves her.

    • Catseye says:

      Did you try HLN? It’s showing the trial stuff right now.

  15. plainviewsue says:

    The before/after pics of the Maloof were astounding. I wonder when she started all of the work. Before meeting Paul I would imagine.

    • Rebecca says:

      It’s actually very sad. Having a little work done to improve your own features to improve your self-esteem is one thing. Why would you want to change yourself completely? I’ve been considering a nose job but would copy my sister’s nose so I still looked like part of the family.

  16. AZGirl says:

    I watched the preview of tonight’s BH. Yolanda gives Brandi a gift. A pair of really HOT shoes. Of course the Bravo site freezes up right when they do a close up of Kyle’s reaction when Brandi shows everyone the shoes. SHE IS SO PISSED! Kyle’s facial expression is priceless and I had it frozen on my computer screen! Just typical vile Kyle insanely jealous of anyone and anything. Another FU from Brandi and Yolanda to the Richards sisters.

    • Sus says:

      Oh, I hope someone puts up a screencap. I need a new twitter picture

    • pat says:

      I watched a clip of when Kyle was on WWHL and a viewer asked about Kyle using Faye as her mouthpiece. Kyle was so upset about it, she said “I swear on my life I didn’t do that” …but I think she did. She had assigned seats at that dining room “reveal” dinner where Brandi was attacked, and had Faye seated directly across from Brandi. And Faye’s info about Brandi obviously came from Kyle. Made me think about the first season when Camille was SO adament that Kyle had made that comment about “why would Bravo want to film Camille in Hawaii if Kelsey wasn’t going to be there.” And Kyle swore up and down that she never said it. Me thinks maybe she did. She makes a lot of mean-spirited jokes and thinks she can get away with them by just belting out her Phyllis Diller laugh.

    • T-Rex says:

      Yeppers and YOLO hasn’t backed down in her blogs either, I know she does not like VileKyle and her antics, I don’t think she thinks anything of SpaceCadetMajorKim. Plus VileKyle was jealous that YOLO and not FayeKR was chosen for the coveted HW position on the show, and then buddied up to Brandi right away. Goes to show that we don’t see a lot of the stuff behind the scenes or that made it to the cutting room floor. Look VileKyle was on TeamHoofMaloof going into this season she and the Hoof thought they could “take down” LisaVpump, that is clear from watching this season. Only about half way through filming VileKyle realized she was on the “wrong” team, but didn’t know what to do, because she still at this point in filming is hoping that FayeKR would be getting a spot on the show, waaawaaawaa, that was an EPIC.FAIL too. As SUS pointed out it’s clear that VileKyle is using FayeKR as her mouthpiece, she did this at Camilizilla’s party and she is clearly doing this several times this season. I can’t wait until the whole FayeKR TeaParty-Gate is talked about at the reunion, because she WASN”T INVITED by the owner of the home, was told she WASN”T INVITED but the loserBitch showed up anyway and took the gift that was there for SpaceCadetKim on top of it, oh crap now her name is LoserBitchFayeKR

    OT, but I need help please. I desperately need skin care suggestions for 50+. Just found out the hard way I’m allergic to Aveeno Positively Ageless moisturizer. Burned my face (lightly) and neck (severely) like a sunburn, or I’m guessing like a face peel. Skin on my neck has that papery getting ready to peel off feel to it. I’ve used Aveeno Positively Radiant for years and decided to “age” into the Ageless line. Huge mistake. After looking at reviews online at Amazon, I find I’m clearly not the only one with this problem. I always wondered why I couldn’t use the Radiant line anywhere near my eyes before and now I know that wasn’t just me either.

    I’m in the midwest and can feel my skin withering by the moment. I desperately need a moisturizer, STAT!!!! Not sure what to try now. In addition to the Aveeno line, I’m also allergic to Olay and Garnier. At this point, I have no moral or fiscal objections to department store line. Suggestions, please……

    • Sus says:

      Simple is my new face stuff after I got a chemical burn using Clinique!
      http://www.amazon.com/Simple-Replenishing-Rich-Moisturizer-Ounce/dp/B005TI7L6O/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1363021536&sr=8-1&keywords=simple+moisturizer

      I absolutely love it. I buy either on Amazon or at Rite Aid

      I love their eye cream too.

      • catmom1 says:

        Good to know, I had been thinking of trying Clinique now I know to pass on it.

      • Nancy says:

        Sus,
        One of my friends is a plastic surgeon and he has said more than once that Clinique
        has kept him in business. Apparently they used to put wax in their soap.

    • Kansas Girl says:

      I don’t have product suggestions, but I would suggest you figure out what’s in those products that is causing the reaction. Once you know what it is, you can eliminate future pain in trying new types. Compare the labels???

    • TexasTart says:

      Hi Catmom, I’m 50 and I will NEVER try another product that boasts “ageless” because the stuff burned my skin too!!! I kept the packaging, like KansasGirl suggested on 3 products and these things have so many damn ingredients I could not figure out which one was the culprit. I’m very light use of cosmetics in the first place, however a moisturizer and sunscreen are mandatory for me. I am very, very pleased with Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion (SPF 15) as I wear it ever single day.

    • LA_Debra says:

      I started using Philosophy “Hope In A Jar”. You can get it on HSN or Philosophy sells on their website.

      After I turned 60 I escalted to “Miracle In A Jar”. Living in the desert that is LA, dry skin is a real problem, but I really like these two.

    • T-Rex says:

      I use the Meaningful Beauty stuff from Cindy Crawford works great, but I don’t have skin allergies either.

    • catmom1 says:

      Thanks so much for all the suggestions. I’m going to take Kansas Girls advice and compare labels to see if I can figure out what I’m allergic to. Seems the older I get, the longer the list grows. For my immediate needs (as in the next half hour), I’m running down to the store to try Texas Tart’s Neutrogena. Will let you know how that works out. Thanks again to everyone for the advice. If anyone has any more advice/opinions/suggestions, I’m open to them. Thanks and running to the grocery…..

      • Catseye says:

        According to my botox doc, SkinMedica is the gold standard and it costs a pretty penny too about ($85 for the TNS Recovery Complex–lasts about 1 month, funky smell) but there are really good moisturizer/sunscreens that run a little cheaper Environmental Defense about $35-45, lasts several months. Recently, I changed over to NeoCutis which has both a Moisturizer w/tint for daytime (Journee about $80 for *2* months supply) or the Bio-Restorative w/PSP about the same price. Both lines have some type of additive that was reproduced from human skin cells to encourage skin growth and I’m pretty sure was developed for burn victims, from what I’ve read. I buy my stuff from Amazon.

    • Rebecca says:

      I’ve tried everything at one time or another in the search of the fountain of youth. Now I use Cetaphil at the advice of my dermatologist. I’ve been using it for 10 years with no negative results – and still no wrinkles (I’m 40-something)

      • Catseye says:

        Since I’m mid 50’s, I have started using higher quality skin care, although I think Serious Skincare by Jennifer Stallone on HSN is pretty darn good and rivals a lot of the higher priced brands. But one thing for certain, I wear a visor every time I go out in the sun for any length of time.

      • iceNfire says:

        Plain old Pond’s just like my Grandmother used and she only had a little crows feet at age 103. The rest of her face was smooth and wrinkle free

  18. shamrockblonde says:

    how old was Ad when she started the face work? she will never know what might have been, and somewhow I think that thought settles in her heart from time to time – very sad – thanks so much for Atlanta recap too – I don’t watch, but never miss the fab recap!!
    Jeff!!!! YAY!!! surfer dude rode the last wave out! – he should have listened to his girl – she said several times to use the express pass, but noooo – not him….now to get rid of the other asshat – newlywed guy – what a pill – still rooting for father/son and the hockey players – just so long as the pill doesn’t win – I wonder if he is related to Reynold on Survivor……..thanks for the recap, Jeff – as always I watched it with you in my head last night and could feel you getting progressively annoyed with surfer dude – too funny!!

  19. chismosa says:

    Guys i called it the other day!!! The Duggars are having another baby!!!! ha ha haaaa, this is NOT funny but i can’t believe i said the other day that i was sure the poor mother was going for it. OMG

    • chismosa says:

      take it back, my friend told me this and i thought it was the main mother , SORRY, IGNORE.

    • lillybee says:

      It is the oldest son’s wife, who is expecting her third. I hope that they don’t try and catch up with his parents.

  20. NMH says:

    I may have mentioned this before, but during first season, my MIL passed a tablod to my husband because it had a pic of the RHOBH on it because he played tennis in high school during Adrienne’s time and he was acquainted with her. He didn’t even recognize her and mentioned she had a very big nose at that time. He said he had felt sorry for because there was a lot of nasty in-fighting in the Maloof family well known in Albuquerque at the time so when I’ve mentioned lately of all her nastiness now, he wasn’t too surprised.

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Ooooo, oooo, ooooo! Speak to us of what you know! What was the in-fighting? What was her personality then? Did she talk in that vague, going-in-circles style back then?

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Shame on you, KG. no lawsuit. no lawsuit filed. What are you talking about? Shame on you. ooops I forgot..*gravel gravel* 😉

      • NMH says:

        I wish I had more to tell, but don’t other than what he mentioned in passing a couple of years ago. He felt sorry for her because she came across as nice and shy but he wasn’t that friendly with her, only was acquainted because they were all in the tennis leagues together. He said city knowledge was that her father and his brother (her uncle) had major issues and the 2 sides of the family fought. He said there was a particular match where she had 2 play her cousin, and it got nasty because they were very competitive. That’s when he said he felt sorry for her because of this.

        That’s all I’ve got for you other than one day we passed by her old family home and he pointed it out because he painted the house next door while working in his grandfather’s painting business back then.

        Wish I had more to share.

        • Kansas Girl says:

          That’s ok. It’s actually quite a lot, considering the passage of time. My brother was also on the tennis team in high school and he can’t remember anything beyond who else played. I wonder if she was how she is when Paul married her, or if marriage changed her. I find people so interesting and her lack of warmth toward the husband was so astoundingly obvious. Paul talked once on the show about meeting her. It struck me that he pursued her and she was not all that interested. But who knows, since what they presented on the show turns out to be a lie, or a variation on truth. Thanks for bugging your hubs about this.

          • NMH says:

            I can barely remember things about my high school days and sometimes what happened last week 😉 but tennis he does remember a lot about because since moving back to ABQ, he keeps running into a lot of high school people as well as people he played tennis with as well as rejoining the tennis league again. So he’s always saying he met up with old tennis teachers or partners etc. all the time.

            My opinion is that coming from a family who seems very opinionated and aggressive (allegedly), she can’t help but be just as opinionated and aggressive herself, even if she holds back at first. I can believe she has always acted like she’s done Paul a favor by marrying him as well.

  21. TexasTart says:

    Yeah, we know it 😉 Brandi is on WWHL tonight!!!

    I’m finally home after a 7 hour trip. Yay. There’s no place like home but I already miss the kid. 😦

    • Nancy says:

      Welcome back BB. Did you take your dogs with you?

      • BB says:

        Nancy, I took one (the needy one) with me and left one with my oldest daughter. Two dogs and my mom would have been a bit much. Lol.

        • Nancy says:

          Which one is the needy one?

          • BB says:

            Cody (the little black poodle mix). He’s a mamma’s boy and is with me ALL the time. Tanner likes everybody (me the best though) and can adjust to new surroundings better. As long as he’s with someone, he’s happy. It doesn’t HAVE to be me. Cody’s one of those one person type of dogs.

            • Nancy says:

              I get it as Emily was like that. I hope your mom had a good time.

              • BB says:

                She said she really enjoyed it, but I think it completely wore her out. She wanted to see where my daughter lived, so we decided to take her. She can scratch that one off her bucket list. Lol.

    • Powell says:

      Welcome hone. Hope you all had a great time.

  24. TexasTart says:

    90210 is still an active series?!

    • T-Rex says:

      These are the last of the shows it was cancelled last week

      • TexasTart says:

        Oh, thank you, T-Rex. I thought maybe I lived under a rock not knowing 90210 is still a show….but I don’t keep this channel in ‘my favorites’! Maybe I can get home in time to record this. Although I expect it will be a quick walk-on-walk-off much of nothing…but might be funny to see them out of ‘character’. lol

      • Powell says:

        I watched the very 1st epi to see who would be back. Jenni Garth-Kelly & Tori Spelling-Donna were back. I never watched any other epis. I’m surprised it lasted as long as it did.

  25. TexasTart says:

    Much appreciation to ALL of you that contribute to the blog – week after week, you are a very dedicated bunch! 😀

  26. Powell says:

    Looking at Vicki’s before & after pic. I’m sorry but it’s not good. Her eyes look smaller like Kenny Rogers does after his PS and her face looks lopsided. Maybe it’s still swollen.

  27. nyc mama says:

    Watching the RHBH epi’s again. Bastille Day is in July so why is Kim Richards wearing winter boots in Paris? She wore them at the airport in LA and then again shopping. Bizarre.

    • TexasTart says:

      Very observant….it just proves that she’s living in her own world, doesn’t it.

    • princesspindy says:

      I googled it and it can be chilly and even rainy in July, remember YoYoma had on a shawl and still looked cold….

  28. nyc mama says:

    Not cool enough for winter boots. Yolanda had a light shawl on because it was windy on their terrace and on the Eiffel Tower but otherwise she had on no sleeves and a mini skirt as did the others. Paris is hot and humid during July and August. I lived there for 3 years and there is no reason to wear winter clothes during the summer.

    Is this where we are posting for BH tonight?
