Exclusive – Poor Little Rich Girl – Adrienne’s Childhood Nasty due to Family Feud / Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

 Exclusive – Poor Little Rich Girl – Adrienne’s Childhood Nasty due to Family Feud and Other Housewives Gossip Roundup by NoMoreDrama

Poor little rich girl, Adrienne Maloof.  Our own NMH‘s husband played tennis with Adrienne in high school.  This is what he told her (in the comments from yesterday):

“During first season, my MIL passed a tabloid 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.”

“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.”

Her life isn’t much better today.  Adrienne Maloof gets fired quits the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and then ends her fake relationship with Rod Steward’s son all in a short span.  Could it be that she didn’t need the fake relationship to make her seem interesting if she was already gone from the show? Especially since Rod Steward’s wife said no to joining the show.  Maybe this will be the last we hear of Adrienne.  Who know, a little more plastic surgery and she could make herself unrecognizable again.  More on the split from US Weekly.

Greggy Bennett from the Real Housewives of New Jersey has moved to San Francisco. He’s been there one week, and written a blog about his adventures, narrated by clips of Kim Richards.  If you want a laugh, check it out.

Dang.  I thought Karent Sierra of the Real Housewives of Miami had a little more money than the average broke housewife, considering she was a dentist. Turns out she’s got two homes in foreclosure according to this article.    I suppose in this economy it can happen to anyone if they bought at the wrong time.  I WANT THIS RECESSION TO END.  Rant over.

Meanwhile castmate Lisa Hochstein has won approval to demolish her 88-year old Star Island mega-mansion and build a new mega-mansion in it’s place.  After months of fighting with preservationists that were concerned about the loss of historic homes in Miami Beach, the City’s Design Review Board approved the Hochstein’s plans.  Although there seemed to be general agreement that the loss of historic homes was concerning, the Board didn’t feel it right to “change the rules” on the Hochsteins.  Hopefully they’ll exhibit a bit of taste.  What the heck am I saying.  I saw their last house.  You can read more here.

Yolanda Foster has been very public about her battle with Lyme disease.  When did she know something was wrong?  According to a tweet, we watched the moment last night – “❤This defining moment with Taylor made me realize something was really wrong with me, I felt so sick and could barely speak.#Lymebrain

Lisa Vanderpump is going to face some stiff competition on Dancing with the Stars this season, with my girl Aly Raisman on the show as well.  Aly is a member of the Fab Five and won two Gold Medals at the Olympics last summer – team and on the floor.  So watch out Lisa! That said, doesn’t Lisa look cute?

So Brandi Glanville and Gerard Butler DID Hook Up (Allegedly) by BB

I’m not sure if it was part of the Take the Fifth game or not, but remember when Brandi Glanville was asked by Andy Cohen on an episode of WWHL who her most famous hook-up was and she blurted out the name Gerard Butler?   Shortly after, Gerard was quoted as saying he didn’t even know who Brandi Glanville was. I always tended to believe Brandi on this one. On E! News last night the record was set straight – allegedly.  Gerard was on the Howard Stern show, and Howard brought the subject up with him.  Seems Gerard does remember meeting her at a party and they had a good time, but he told Howard when he was approached by the paparazzi about what Brandi said on WWHL he had no idea who they were talking about because, (1) he never knew her last name; and (2) he didn’t know she was a celebrity.  Well, let’s face it,  Brandi isn’t what I would consider a “celebrity” in the context of Gerard Butler’s type of celebrity .  But what a difference a second season on RHOBH and a tell-all book makes.  At least Gerard has since remembered his encouter with Brandi – allegedly.

RHOBH “No Business Like Clothes Business” by BB

RHOBH 1We rejoin the ladies (and Ken and Maurice) at the end of their Paris trip.  They are taking a river cruise.   They are all having a nice dinner when Yolanda presents Brandi with a pair of designer shoes.  While Brandi is showing them off, Maurice points out the bridge where he and Kyle left the lock.  Lisa realizes maybe she needs to put a little romance back into her marriage and mentions the vow renewal Ken wants to have.  Kim tells them all thanks for making it such a great grip and Brandi tells Kim her favorite part of Paris was spending time with her.  That makes Kim feel good.  Brandi’s second favorite part of the trip is the shoes!

Back in Beverly Hills, Marisa visits Kyle.  They talk about losing Marisa’s father in law, Richard right before she and Dean were to leave for Paris.  Marisa’s mother in law wants to sell the house and Marisa suggests she and Maurice list it together.  Kyle talks about Paris and the opening of her new store.  Kyle mentions Kim’s off behavior on the trip.  Kyle looks forward to the day she no longer has to worry about Kim.  That day may never come.

RHOBH 2Lisa is trying to get the Gigster to walk, but he’s not having it.  Kevin Lee, the wedding planner who put Pandora’s wedding together, shows up to discuss a house warming party with Lisa.  Kevin never does anything for less than $1Mil.  Lisa wants something intimate for around 60 or so people. Ken shows up and wants to also have a vow renewal and Lisa agrees to it although she doesn’t think it’s necessary.

rhobh 3Yolanda and David have a photo shoot for a Japanese magazine.  Yolanda is very decisive about the clothes she wants to wear for the shoot.  She ends up looking stunning and David doesn’t look too bad either.

RHOBH 4Maurice goes to Marisa’s in-laws’ house to discuss co-listing the property for sale.  They go through the house and decide on a selling price of $23 million.  Maurice thinks it will be an easy sell.

RHOBH 5The boutique Kyle By Alene Too, is a business venture between Kyle and her partners, Debbie Weisman and Lizzy Schwartz, who started the Alene Too franchise in Boca Raton, FL. They all get together to choose some fashion pieces for the store opening.  Kyle admits she doesn’t know what she’s doing and she’s on a learning curve.  I wonder what her partners think about Kyle’s style choices as she’s going through the clothes and picking out things for “her” store.  One of them points out she’s choosing looks that are similar, like caftan looking things.  Who is Kyle trying to attract as a customer – Bea Arthur of Golden Girls fame?  Sounds like Lizzie may be questioning Kyle’s fashion sense a little.  Is Kyle really in on the major decisions with this new store or is she more the “face” of the store and going through the motions?   I wonder how much input Kyle will have in the day-to-day operations of the store.  Will she be hiring and firing?  Will she be there every day to open and close?  I very much doubt that.  Since these two women are not from LA, I can see why they would need someone who “knows” Beverly Hills and has the connections there to help make their new store a success.  I really don’t know, but I’m guessing maybe Kyle is the front-person for the store and the most important business decisions are made by others.

RHOBH 8 (1)The most hideous part of tonight’s episode is Taylor meeting up with Pam-Dana, who apparently just went through a bad breakup. Pam-Dana has been sitting in something because she has a spot on the back-side part of her dress.  Pam-Dana is obviously drunk and makes some off-color jokes about Lisa and Ken.  She states she drinks a lot and screws a lot and she’s OK with it.  Pam-Dana proclaims her hatred of all things Brandi by saying Brandi was right even though she hates the bitch.  She thinks Brandi is a low life and is not “of par” with their group.  Pam-Dana is under the mistaken illusion she is still part of the RHOBH group.  This coming from a person sitting there so drunk she can hardly light her cigarette.  She warns Taylor to watch her back with all the women.  Pam-Dana is the first person I would go to for advice about how to handle the women on RHOBH – NOT!RHOBH 7

Kyle is getting ready for her store opening and models two outfits from her store for Maurice.  They are pretty, but neither really flatter Kyle’s figure.  I personally like the first, shorter dress better.  Kyle also looks like she’s added a “bump-it” to her hair.  She’s nervous about her opening and talks to Kim on the phone to make sure she’s coming, even though she probably won’t be on time.  She mentions sister Kathy won’t be able to be there.  Now little Portia is styling and adorable.  As soon as Kyle shows up at her store, she wants to make changes to reflect her “taste.”  I say leave things alone and she’ll probably be better off.

RHOBH 10At the opening, Yolanda and Taylor have a discussion about why Taylor has a problem with Yolanda.  It’s an awkward discussion, especially from Yolanda’s side, but they seem to come to some type of agreement of how to proceed from there.  Boils down to Taylor hearing bad things about David from her good friend who is David’s ex.  Taylor agrees to give David a chance and not judge him on just what her good friend has told her.RHOBH 9

Everyone, including Adrienne, shows up for Kyle’s opening.  Even Fayke, the “store designer” is there.  Camille, who seems to have no purpose in the group anymore, shows up and they talk about not having seen Adrienne lately.  When Adrienne arrives, she and Brandi make sure their paths do not cross.  I’m not sure where Adrienne gets the idea that Brandi wants to make a scene at Kyle’s party because there is certainly no indication of that.

RHOBH 11Why Kim and Kyle have to have their heart to heart talk about Kim’s behavior in Paris right then and there, I have no clue.  I have had bad reactions to medications in the past and I have thrown that medicine away, never to take it again.  Kim is trying to make Kyle believe she was taking the wrong medication, one she couldn’t take in the past, in Paris instead of her “water” pill.  I’m not buying it and I’m tired of these conversations about Kim and her sobriety or lack of it. On the one hand, Kyle says she knows Kim was on something if not alcohol.  On the other hand Kyle thinks Kim’s explanation about taking the wrong medication makes perfect sense.  You’d think after all these years dealing with Kimberly, Kyle would have a little more insight about things.

Brandi and Yolanda are looking through the clothes in Kyle’s store and Yolanda thinks some of them are vintage instead of new.  Yolanda chooses a $3,000 dress for a store employee to hold for her.  How much does a decent horse cost?  Cut down on the clothes, shoe gifts for Brandi and artwork, and maybe she could afford to buy her daughter that second horse she claims she can’t afford.  Just sayin’.

Can’t wait until next week when Fayke accuses Brandi of breaking up Adrienne’s and Paul’s marriage.  Should be entertaining.

        After 11 inches of snow on Sunday and 40 degree temps yesterday, I am now fighting the battle of the slush. Big, big piles of it. When it melts it has no where to go and so there it sits. LIke they say – when it snows in March, it doesn’t stay around very long. It will all be gone by the end of the week. Love the moisture though!

          • Cathy Connor says:

            Is that on her facebook ? I dont farm will ask my friend how to do it sure no prob will figure that out no worries

  5. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    I’m going to guess that Marisa asked Mauricio to list the house with her so that the house would be shown on the BH. More exposure for the house-free advertising and all. When the house got sold Marisa said she sold it on her own but didn’t say why she listed it with Mauricio-maybe she needs to explain!!!

    • Jules says:

      Marice had left the agency that Marisa was working for and started his own. NO way he would be on the listing.

    • Pamela says:

      I thought the same, about the exposure for the house. Still confused about Marissa’s tweets.

    • Rebecca says:

      Her tweets imply she was forced into the story line by Bravo. She should have waited until the ink was dry on a new contract before outing the producers’ secrets.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        She doesn’t really know to play the game yet-the house was splashed all over the TV last night-we get it-but then all the tweeting about it makes her look like she didn’t know it was going to be shown!!

    • RealHousewifeVA says:

      Marisa’s tweets juggest that she just went along with Producers who asked her to pretend Mauricio would be on the listing.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Yes she went along with the producers to get what she wanted but throwing them under the bus now may prove to be a big mistake!!

        • realhousewifeva says:

          Why?

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            B/c she may end up with a not so great edit next season? I don’t think it is wise to ever throw someone under the bus when they decide the outcome of how you maybe perceived.

            • realhousewifeva says:

              But don’t you think she is not being invited back next season after not being invited to the reunion? I mean, even Dana was invited to last season’s reunion for 2 minutes, and she wasn’t asked back. I just assumed Marisa knows she’s not gonna be back, so she doesn’t really care.

    • T-Rex says:

      JnnTJ that is my opinion of the Murray being brought into the sale. Marisa is a very well established realtor, the listing was for her Motherinlaw and there is no added value in signing Murray, except to get more TV Time, this seems definitey like a Bravo-induced co-listing.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Bravo induced-yes but I saw Marisa being a willing participant in the farce-she can’t get all uppity about it now. Seems like she is trying to get us to see that scene differently than we did!!!

      • Rebecca says:

        Consider the fact that the house was listed last summer, and she knew the episode would not be airing until the spring. There was no need for exposure for the house. She knew it wouldn’t last long on the market. Right now she seems livid on being forced into the roll of “damsel in distress” who couldn’t sell a house without the great and powerful Maurice Umansky to rescue her.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          She didn’t look like she was upset last night while showing off the house. I didn’t get a damsel in distress vibe but I did get a ” look at this great house” vibe… She seemed very comfortable and happy to have Mauricio there with her

          • Rebecca says:

            Check her twitter now. She’s extremely defensive about selling the house on her own.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              I saw her twitter last night and she was defensive about it- it was also on her twitter a few weeks ago

          • LaineyLainey says:

            I thought she gave off an “I am inept and don’t know how to sell real estate on my own, I need a great big strong man to help me” kind of vibe. Not fair to her at all. But she did go along with the whole “I need Mauricio” bit…so bad on her. She wants her cake (her business reputation to remain intact) and to eat it, too (fame from the show). What’s the point of having cake if you can’t eat it, too.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              I agree Lainey-don’t go along with the story and cry about it later!!!!

            • L.A. Chica says:

              That’s what I’ve always said! As it turns out, the saying got twisted around. Originally it was “You can’t eat your cake and have it, too.” Now THAT makes sense. 🙂

        • L.A. Chica says:

          Exactly, Rebecca! ITA.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      But why would MZ need to show it on the show as free advertising on the house? If you are selling an 18,000 sq. ft. house do you really need anything free? Oh and By the time that episode aired, the house was SOLD. To answer my own question about the free advertising… I guess that’s how the rich stay rich (getting free stuff).

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Why show it then? Why agree to let it be shown? She either did it for free advertising or for a story line

        • L.A. Chica says:

          It was not for free advertising, it was for a lame storyline that made no sense and was stupid. I pointed this out in a comment I posted last night to the Bravo producer’s blog but it got edited out.

          If you look at yesterday’s Lynnfam blog you can see what I’d said in full toward the very end of the thread. However, they only posted the first paragraph about enjoying Paris.

    • L.A. Chica says:

      The house was sold before the show was aired, wasn’t it? To me this was bad storyline manipulation by Bravo. Marisa absolutely did not need Mauricio’s help. While this is a very expensive home it’s also one of historical importance. Believe me when I say that anyone in the market for such a home would be in the know when it became available.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        That’s the point-she didn’t need him but she still used him and now she is acting like she had nothing to do with it…it’s very annoying!!!

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Maybe he actually did nothing aside from that scene we seen. 😉

        • L.A. Chica says:

          Marisa didn’t use Mauricio, Bravo used them both for a pointless storyline. They just wanted to show off the Zanuck house to give the show a little more pizazz, some real old fashioned Hollywood and Beverly Hills bling. Old Hollywood is L.A.’s equivalent of the East Coast’s Old Money, or at least the closest thing to it, and by and large the RH franchises are filled with New Money, which isn’t as impressive to some people.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Well, mission accomplished because this viewer loved seeing the property!

            • L.A. Chica says:

              Actually, so did I. I only wish they could have come up with another way to show it off. If it had been me making up storylines I’d have brought in a fake prospective buyer so Marisa could give both them and us a tour.

              • $25,000 says:

                Right, L.A. Chica!

                I loved that they showed the house because I loved seeing it. I didn’t appreciate Bravo trying to sell us on that fake storyline.

                She could have been showing the house to a prospective buyer or even showing the house to a friend or one of the housewives who had no intention to buy but who was curious about it. It is a gorgeous house and the Zanuck’s are Hollywood royalty. I am sure there were lots of people who would have loved to have seen it whether they were in the market or not.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            She did use him-why ask Kyle about him listing with her and then meet Mauricio at the house if she knew she wasn’t going to list with? She is acting like she was never going to list with him so to me that is using him

            • LaineyLainey says:

              She used him only if she got something out of it. Did she? I don’t know. As to the “why” – she said the producers told her to do it. For storyline purposes, I’m guessing.

            • L.A. Chica says:

              The housewives often do things at the producer’s request. They don’t show their actual real day to day lives on the show, it’s more like a parallel segment of their real day to day lives for a season. As such, a lot of plot points are spun out of thin air and then the reality part – the Housewives’ interaction within those set up plot points – gets filmed.

              All those vow (and vowel) renewal ceremonies, “coincidental” trips to Paris, dinner parties to introduce newly decorated dining rooms, etc. are all Bravo created storylines. And like them, Marisa “needing help” from Mauricio to do a job she’s well established at is for Bravo and only Bravo’s benefit, that is to give some structure to the show.

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                We all know how it’s done Chica-the fact that Marisa is trying to act like she wasn’t in on it is what I have a problem with.

                • L.A. Chica says:

                  Gotcha. Maybe she didn’t expect the viewers to not buy the Bravo ruse and now feels she has to be defensive.

                  I still think they’d have been better off bringing in a fake prospective buyer. Then the scripting wouldn’t have been so obvious, imho.

                • realhousewifeva says:

                  She’s probably pissed b/c she wasn’t invited to the reunion, which basically gaurantees she’s not in next season.

                  • pat says:

                    Yep, that’s a big “tell” that she is not coming back. Seems like there might be something more to it, too, because they’ve had people at the reunion that the axed before the new season. But then, she was only a “friend” of the housewives.

            • realhousewifeva says:

              Marisa is only a friend of the housewives. Her storylines revolved around her interactions with the other wives, not individual storylines. If production wanted to show the house on the show, they probably needed to fit it in with another housewife somehow…enter Kyle’s husband, Mauricio the realtor. Marisa is new to the show, probably went along with it to get the airtime and publicity for her work. It ended up that he didn’t help sell. I don’t think it’s really all that serious. Lots of the housewives on all the shows say when something is producer driven.

          • pat says:

            ITA, L.A. Chica. I think Bravo was hoping Marisa was going to bring Zanuck glitz and glam & old Hollywood cred to the show, then her FIL tragically passed away, and her MIL wants to unload their gorgeous home STAT, before Bravo could even get them on camera and milk that storyline. IMO, the home was the type that would have been shown & sold privately. Annoying all the way around that they all clearly created a storyline involving Maurice. btw, a great drinking game would be whenever Maurice says “amazing.”

            • Agreed Pat! But, Marisa is definitely not glitz and glamour herself. i would bet that there is a lot more footage to this storyline sitting on the editing room floor that even Bravo could see that no one would buy it. Or perhaps the Zanuck family did not want it shown. I think this is yet another Bravo blunder that backfired. There have been quite a few lately. Are they losing their touch? 🙂

    Good morning all. It’s raining here in SE VA. Getting ready to go down to the OBX for a day or two. Seems like I’m on the road a lot lately. Y’all have a great day.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY WasLurking! Hope you have a great birthday.

    BBL

  7. WindyCityWondering says:

    IMHO – Kyle knows what is going on with Kim and has been dealing with this for her entire life. Sometimes Kyle comes across as “dumb, as in I didn’t know that” because whatever Kim is saying is total and utter BS – and to confront that would likely cause more unusable film of Kim. How many times are we going to be subjected to the Richard sister bad audition scene?

    • TexasTart says:

      I vote for no more staged “sister talks” – EVER! It’s bad acting, I don’t buy any of it! Kim you are living in an altered reality and your excuses fall on deaf ears! Taking the wrong meds might just be one of the very rare moments she has accepted responsiblity for her actions, but do we believe it?! I don’t care anymore, but no more sister talks or I will be forced to watch this recorded and FF through them like Taylor of S2.

      • These “sister talks” are so scripted and fake they are hard to watch. No one I know would have these talks about such serious subjects in the middle of crowded, televised events! Pffft, Bravo!

  8. trudie says:

    Happy, happy day WasLurking! May it be fabulous from beginning to end!

  9. TexasTart says:

    BB – Thanks for the recap – love your sidebars! Lots of good ones, but this one takes the cake “Who is Kyle trying to attract as a customer – Bea Arthur of Golden Girls fame?” 😆

  10. Rebecca says:

    Well, at least we were all proven right about what a train wreck Dana is and that she should have never been on the show. She’s a hot unlikable mess.

  11. TexasTart says:

    Of course, everyone who watched the show noticed, but was that not housewives gold when Pam/Dana proclaims Brandi is not up to par with their group?! No need I point out who said that – and to who she said it to! LOL!

    Dana, please be our guest; be hateful, drinking and ___ yourself into oblivion, I’m glad that you are so happy with your life. We had already forgotten about you and I assure it will be just as easy tomorrow to say “Dana Who?!”

    • T-Rex says:

      HA! Bravo at it’s best giving PamDana her swan song from the show and showing the viewers yet again why she didn’t even really make it to the FRIEND of the HW status, LOL!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      One minute she’s saying her former pretend life was a house of cards, next minute…”Brandi isn’t on par with us”. LOL!!!! delusional much?

    • Kansas Girl says:

      I wish Taylor would have shown more reaction to that. An aha moment where we know she finally gets that this is not a friend. But instead, she went along with Dana. Fail!

      • Contessa says:

        You are all right…that was TV gold – Brandi isn’t on par with us. Said while she was obviously drunk, in a dirty dress, chugging an alcoholic drink, lighting her cigarette from a candle (where is the diamond encrusted lighter that goes with the $25,000 sunglasses). Wow can we say Bravo is laughing all the way to the bank with this one. She was disgusting talking about having fun with drinking and screwing her way through LaLa land. At least she gave Brandi credit for saying her fiancee was probably cheating (Brandi probably had some background to that story) because he travelled so much. This woman was disgusting last year and has proven that she is the same this year as well. Talk about low life – what a nightmare. She hates Brandi – well of course she does, Brandi got on the show as a full time housewife, and is making a name for herself and on her own.

        • pat says:

          Yep, just as with Faye, Dana can’t believe Brandi took a housewives spot that they both covet so much.

        • princesspindy says:

          I’m glad you explained that she was lighting her cig from a candle cuz I thought she was putting the cig in a glass and when it came out lit, no one was more surprised than PP!!

  12. Rebecca says:

    For all you past and current Dallas fans, it was quite a show last night. The intro song was played by a couple of horns – so lovely. JR’s ex-wives came back to toast him. Jerry Jones (blech) and Mark Cuban made cameos at his memorial. Lots of photos from the old show made it but no past clips. The “who killed JR” is turning into a riveting story line.

    Next week – Valene comes back!

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I teared up during the memorial! Loved seeing all the old familiar faces too. And I can’t wait to see Bobby go all Ewing on their enemies in the episodes to come!!

    • trudie says:

      It was a great show! Didn’t like John Ross hooking up with Emma, although it was inevitable. Now she’ll probably get pregnant and that will open up a whole can of worms. One more reason for Harris to go after Bobby and Anne, John Ross tied to Bobby and Anne in another way, etc.

    • lizzle says:

      When I was a child, my mom put me in a beauty pageant. My cousin had done many pageants, so I was fine with being in it. I practiced with my cousin a whole summer on all the beauty pageant stuff in preparation for the big night. Well.. the night came and during the question/answer segment I was asked “What question do you have that you would like to see answered? (or something along those lines)” I don’t remember this… but my mom said I asked “Who shot JR?” My mom was so embarrassed, because she never let my watch any adult shows and it looked like I was a Dallas viewer. It just so happened that everyone in school was doing this thing with their hands saying “Who shot JR?” and your hand ended up in the shape of a gun. Anyway… it was just childplay… but needless to say that I lost the pageant and my mom never entered me into one again. LOL And to this day… I have never seen Dallas. I guess JR is a legend that is bigger than Dallas.

    • Powell says:

      OMG Rebecca! I have to start DVR’ng.

    • Cried my eyes out – loved Dallas from Day One. I’m so glad that they’ve given Old JR a proper farewell.

  13. RealHousewifeVA says:

    I watched the clips for next week…from the ladies gossiping about Brandi wanting Marisa’s husband, hooking up with someone at Kyle’s party, and breaking up Adrienne’s marriage… looks so good. I guess it’s only okay when Adrienne and Faye “character assassin” Brandi 😉

    • Iowagirl says:

      My favorite part of the show last night was the previews for next week, It looks juicy.

    • T-Rex says:

      Ha, well it’s good SOMEONE wants Marisa’s husband because on a number of occasions we have heard her make comments about her marriage that are not flattering, however this is yet another Bravo-induced incident and is so far away from any truth. Oh and LoserBiotchFayeKR is showing again what a LOSER she is by defaming Brandi over the HoofMaloof’s marriage that as KAPUT prior to this season even filming, allegedly. Oh, and let’s note folks that the “supposed”(fake cough cough) spousal abuse by Paul would have happened prior to the Paris trip and before VileKyles event that both Paul and the HoofMaloof attended. According to TMZ timeline about the Fake-incident it noted that Paul was already OUT of the home and living elsewhere and was picking up his children for a visitation! So Paul is out of the house probably end of June and Paris was the 3rd week of July, the following week is VileKyle’s show, so the “Legal Separation” happended PRIOR to VileKyle’s event. Bravo, stop with the timeline crap, we can all do some math, and figure out what you are doing. So the LoserBiotchFayeKR and HoofMaloof “take-down” is going to be ludicrous, oh and probably another reason both of them won’t be returning next season!

  14. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Anyone watch Brandi on WWHL last night? Apparently she was a bit drunky at her book signing….

    • L.A. Chica says:

      I have it on DVR, will watch later.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Saw it. Liked it. She took on Chelsea Handler. Brandi has balls.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        She didn’t really take her on-she told her to suck it…I don’t think Chelsea cares!!!!
        Brandi’s hair twirl was on my nerves…

        • Hiya Jill….was wondering how the party went over the weekend? You ladies have a great time?

        • LaineyLainey says:

          I think Chelsea just MIGHT have something to say. But maybe I’m wrong. We shall see…

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            I will be checking her show to see!!! I watch it anyway!!

            • LaineyLainey says:

              I thought it was an unprovoked attack on Chelsea (by Brandi)…and Chelsea is not an Adrienne. Chelsea is not unarmed when it comes to a battle of the wits…she’s very clever (yet cruel)…LOL!! I love her!!

              • realhousewifeva says:

                But do people care if Chelsea is cruel to Brandi after this? She’s cruel to everyone! I don’t know, I feel like her schtick is getting old. She’s someone who has admittedly slept her way to where she is today and she hates everyone. Doesn’t she have a feud with Joan Rivers, too? And she hates the Kardashians… None of them have been affected by the Chelsea hate.
                She sucked really bad on WWHL, which surprised me. She was even worse on the After Show. And she should really wear more makeup.

                • chismosa says:

                  I agree with EVERYTHING you said. I don’t like her bashing of Joan rivers of late, and the way she ultimately got her show on E several years ago.
                  And I always say she is not naturally beautiful enough to pull off the no-makeup makeup look lol.
                  High 5 on this ! Lol

            • L.A. Chica says:

              I’ve never seen Chelsea’s show, is it any good?

    • Catseye says:

      The Pet Head commercial was the CUTEST thing ever!!!

    • realhousewifeva says:

      Last night I was reading twitter and there were people blasting Brandi for being drunk at the signing and one lady especially was saying someone with Brandi was totally rude. Let me see if I can find it.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I saw that on twitter this morning-Brandi said she signed everyone’s book but admitted that she was drunk .

  15. L.A. Chica says:

    Good Tuesday morning! Well, Bravo posted my comment but only the first paragraph. What wusses. They lack both balls and a sense of humor! I shouldn’t be surprised…

  16. VV says:

    My father in law has been in Hospice since December 2011. He lived with my husband and I at our home. He was called home to Jesus this morning. Please pray for his soul.

    VV Hugs and prayers for you all. He is in a better place, but still in your memories!

  18. Good Morning Lovelies! I hope all the snow is melting and the sun is shining on your street and in your hearts!

    I was so sleepy watching BH last night (the recorded one late in the eve), so I missed a few things you all are talking about. LOL! I will have to watch again later today so I can actually see everything through open eyes, not half closed drowsy ones. I missed Pam/Dana, so I def have to see that. O.O

    Shocking news about Addie & Sean! Tee Hee! 😀

    Thanks as always NMD & BB for the blog today.

    New post, “Tuesday Affirmations ~ New Ways”, is up at my place. Enjoy!

  19. TexasTart says:

    NMD – Yes, Lisa V looks cute! I marvel at the pic above…look how much younger she appears with less makeup!

    • Oh TT, I thought so too! She looks so fresh and years younger. Those heavy eyelashes she wears make her look older and heavy. She looks cute in those pics and I look forward to seeing how she does on DWTS. I haven’t watched the last few seasons, now I have a reason to tune in. Hope you are doing well TT! Hugs!

    • L.A. Chica says:

      I agree, Lisa looks a thousand times better and younger without all that heavy make up. She’s naturally beautiful.

      • iceNfire says:

        Re-posting a link to a beautiful picture of Brandi wearing very little/maybe no make up

        • L.A. Chica says:

          Yes, Brandi is naturally beautiful, too. They ALL look so much better with less or no make up. I don’t understand why they feel it has to be plastered on with a trowel. Is there a Mason’s union contract with Bravo that we don’t know about?

          • iceNfire says:

            They prob wish they could turn each into stone at times. Another natural beauty was Anna Nicole. I was shocked by her makeup free face when her show was on

  20. trudie says:

    Completely OT: for those of you watching the Jodi Arias trial, could you imagine being on the jury and not being able to talk about it with anyone? I think I would have to have my lips sewn shut!

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I would NEVER be able to do it….NEVER!!!!!

    • pat says:

      Right, and can you imagine being Travis’s siblings and other friends and fam? They are instructed that they are not allowed to react, if they are to watch the proceedings. Not even make faces. I would find that next to impossible.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        If I was Travis’s sister, I think they would need have have a security guard posted by me to keep me from lunging over the gallery wall and attacking Jody.

      • trudie says:

        When I see them at the trial, I often wonder if I could sit there day after day listening to her. I know I would go but it would be so hard to listen to that. I don’t think I could keep my composure.

    • Sus says:

      I’d be in jail for contempt because I’d be calling Nancy Grace.

      I don’t understand how things like this happens. Sure I’ve been angry but never to the point I’d risk ruining my own life. I mean get your revenge by canceling his cable. Forward his mail to a prison. Talk trash on Facebook. Tell his family he isn’t living the Mormon way. But don’t kill him and ruin your life.

      I feel the same way about Casey Anthony. Why didn’t she just leave? Yeah Cindy would have botched but so what? I don’t get it.

      I feel badly for Travis’ family too. Here they are Mormons and have to listen to all that sex talk. Even had to listen to it because Jodi was stupid enough to record it.

  21. NMH says:

    Yikes, what a shock when I opened my mail today……moving on, I love those pix of Lisa above, she looks great! I’ve always believed Brandi’s story because Gerard B has really turned into a playboy since going Hollywood. I used to have an actor crush on him late 1990s/early 2000s in his earlier career, but can’t say much about his more recent movies. If anyone is interested, he did a little independent movie called Dear Frankie and its great with lots of good reviews. You have to get passed the Scottish accents tho. That’s it, back to finishing BH recap.

    • NMH says:

      I should probably clarify abt my husband’s comment regarding Adrienne’s nose…it’s not that her nose was so big, the remark he made to me was said as if he was making fun, it’s just it has changed so drastically that he couldn’t recognize her at all.

      • iceNfire says:

        I understood what you were saying 🙂 I had a problem with the Chef at the last bartending job I had. He hated the dining room manager and referred to her as ugly. She wasn’t attractive but calling people ugly really bothers me so I told him how I felt and he stopped saying it…he did continue to hate her tho

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Gerard Butler never denied being with Brandi- his response when asked about Brandi Glanville was “Brandi who???” He admitted to not knowing her last name and not knowing she was ” famous” ( which I don’t think she was). Apparently they didn’t spend much time getting to know each other inthe formal sense….just in the sack.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        he’s such a hunk. mmmmmm goooood!!!!!

      • NMH says:

        I guess what I meant was it was implied when this came out that by him saying “Brandi who?” He was denying it. I’m just saying I never had an issue with believing its true and not made up by B. that’s not to say I agree with spending a week in the sack with some celebrity who obviously is there for a good time only, but that was her decision. There’s a lot of things she does that I wouldn’t do, but I still like her. Him not so much because I don’t like men who come across as users of women, but I could be wrong abt him as I don’t know him. I still can appreciate him in the movie I mentioned above tho.

    • pat says:

      Gerard went into rehab some time after that hookup. I think he probably doesn’t remember a lot of things.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        That maybe true but him saying anything about their hook up only shows us that Brandi is ok with sleeping with a drunk/druggie who doesn’t know her name… Maybe not the claim to fame she is looking for.

        • realhousewifeva says:

          It wasn’t like Brandi just randomly blurted out that she hooked up with him. If I recall, she was asked who was the most famous person she hooked up with and she said him.. Brandi seems to own her sluttiness. She should have pleaded the fifth! haha

          • lizzle says:

            I remember when the whole thing happened last year. Brandi and Gerard hooked up for a week. After he gave the statement to TMZ… he called Brandi and told her he said it, because he is guarded about his private life. He was addicted to pills, because he was hurt on set of some surfing movie and kept taking the pills long after he needed them. Yes… I am a pop culture junkie.

            • L.A. Chica says:

              Well, I’m grateful that you’re a pop culture junkie, Lizzle. How else would we be able to put this story in its proper context? lol 🙂

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            If she plead the 5th no one would be talking about her…. If people are talking about her “she wins”!!! Those were her words on WWHL last night.

            • realhousewifeva says:

              Well sadly, in show business and the world of celebrity today, she’s right.

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                But it would be refreshing to see someone get to the top a different way once in a while

                • realhousewifeva says:

                  How funny, the Brandi Glanville/ Gerard Butler story was on my Yahoo! news homepage! So ironic after we just had this convo.

  22. TexasTart says:

    • pat says:

      I read one of Chelsea’s books. (My horizontal Life.) It was LOL funny in many places, but also sad that her personal life has been such a train wreck. I also just don’t find her so funny that she deserves her own show.

  23. L.A. Chica says:

    OK, here’s the comment I’d posted last night to the Bravo producer’s blog. Note that only the first paragraph survived the Bravo comments editing process. Humorless wusses.

    It was sad to have to leave Paris. We had so much fun watching the Housewives have fun together, enjoying each other’s company. Paris was the perfect backdrop for this.

    As for the rest of tonight’s episode, I have just a few comments for the producers:

    1) Don’t make up stupid storylines. It made zero sense for Marisa to ask Mauricio to list the Zanuck home with her. When you make stuff up it’s best to make sure it’s plausible, otherwise it’s just annoying.

    2) Who invited Pam/Dana to make an appearance? Off with their head! I mean really, we viewers are happily basking in the glow of vicariously experiencing a lovely trip to Paris and then you force this bitter pill on us? What did we ever do to you to make you hate us so?

    3) Whatever we did to tick off the producers, you’re not done punishing us yet. I see that next week we will be made to suffer through more of the faux imperiousness of the Morally Corrupt Faye Resnick (thank you, Camille). Her self-righteousness is loathsome. Please. Enough. Uncle!

    • iceNfire says:

      Yeah, seems like they’re willing approve very nasty comments about the HW’s but they never post comments calling out the shows production. I left a comment on Asa’s blog that was complete nonsense and it got approved

      • L.A. Chica says:

        It’s weird, though. In that same blog they posted comments from people begging the producers to never show Dana or Faye ever again, and also posts calling for viewers to boycott the show’s advertisers until Bravo stops airing footage that includes them. THAT they deem worthy of posting, but not what I wrote?

        • iceNfire says:

          LoL Chica…You called their storylines stupid, called for their beheading, and maybe they thought you called their Uncle stupid too! hahaha I agree with you 100% tho ty for sharing

          • L.A. Chica says:

            Yeah but can’t they take some ribbing? I hate it when people have no qualms about allowing and showcasing others making asses of themselves in public but can’t laugh at themselves. And I even cried uncle!

    • Powell says:

      LA Chica bravo producers are wusses. The need to stop cutting the viewers comments. It’s just ridiculous. They only wanted to show one positive view point. That’s why I don’t bother w/their website. It’s a poor excuse of a website that’s suppose to be fun.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Your comment was well thought out…it wasn’t a knee-jerk reaction type of comment. You’re too thoughtful for Bravo, hon.

  24. TexasTart says:

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Yes, Brandi…CH wasn’t her best on WWHL…and she did talk crap about the HWives but that goes with the territory. You wanna be on tv? That’s the price you pay. Everyone talks crap about the HWs.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        She said that she hated the show and that it’s stupid-this was on the After Show which I don’t think everyone watches but I bet they went to check it out after Andy and Brandi talked about it….I sure did!!!

    • lizzle says:

      It’s kind of ironic that Chelsea Handler hates the housewives when she was the executive producer of one of the worst reality shows ever called Pretty Wild (feel free to google) Two of the sisters became heroine addicts (one recovered and is fine… the other is still an addict) The recovering addict was involved in the crime ring that burglarized celebrity homes. Maybe the housewives are a little too old… Chelsea was into exploiting much younger girls.

      • realhousewifeva says:

        OMG, so true. I think Chelsea is just jealous that these women get famous so quickly while she had to sleep with half of Hollywood (and it shows) to get to the ‘top’. She’s ALWAYS parodying them, and they are often on her show (even if it’s with a guest host). So, while she may “hate” them, she profits from them. I mean, really, if you know anything about her past (and present) she is the last person to judge ANYONE for what they do to make money.

        Not to mention that Joan Rivers owned her when Chelsea tried to be a smart ass about Joan.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          I have to say that the HWs are not often on her show-I saw Bethenny on her show but I don’t recall other HWs being on. And Chelsea didnt sleep with half of Hollywood-only a higher up guy at E!
          She wasn’t judging them-Andy asked if she watched(or a caller did) and she said they were stupid….we call them worse here! She didn’t single out any of them. I think she was making fun of Andy more than making fun of the housewives.
          The parodies she does on the show are hysterical BTW!!!

          • realhousewifeva says:

            Nene was on last week. Gretchen and Tamra were on together last season after they became ‘friends’. Lisa V. was on last season. Those are just the ones I know about and I rarely watch the show.

            I never really cared for Chelsea, it has nothing to do with her opinion about the housewives. But she sounded so dumb judging the housewives for making money the way they do, when she got to where she is because of who she was dating (in my opinion). Then she was arguing with Andy about never having them on her show, when clearly she has had several of them on her show.

            And she did mention Brandi by name twice in the After show.
            I do think the parodies are very funny, I love a good housewife parody. That’s why she should love them, they give her material.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              You are right-she did say Brandi’s name but not to say anything bad about her.

      • Sus says:

        Pretty Wild. I forgot about that train wreck. The voicemail that one of those girls left for the Vanity Fair reporter was hilarious. Yeah Chelsea has no room to make fun.

  25. TexasTart says:

    Was RHOMiami picked up for another season? If so, could she be suggesting fiming is about to start?!

    • pat says:

      Ohhhh no. I was kinda hoping they’d can her.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        I don’t love her, but she made a good case at the reunion for keeping her on one more season…what with the drama and her folder and her childish insults and such. She’s shown she will do whatever it takes to stay on the show no matter how degrading it is to her. Bravo likes that. evidence: TamRAWWWWW!! pAM/DANUHHHHH!!! fRANCID!!!!! TRE!!!!! AUTOTUNE!!!!! So, here we go again…what will Ana do next?!!!? yawn. No really, wake up!!! What does Ana have up her sleeve now? burp. Stop!! This is serious, she’s a SERIOUS Law-yuh!!! meh.

        Just kidding, she will bring some manufactured drama; ;she’s willing to do whatever for camera time. Where would the show be without the manufactured drama?

        • pat says:

          Good point. She really got on my last nerve at the reunion, but will be interesting to see what she brings to the new season.

        • realhousewifeva says:

          Tamra told AllAboutTRH in her recent interview that Andy Cohen calls her the “perfect housewife”. That says it all.

        • Powell says:

          You mention the folder. Sonja had a folder on NY reunion but it was for her nom-existing toaster oven. Ana had her folder of evidence against Lea. When I watched part 2 of Shahs reunion Lilly had a folder proving the cars she and Ali drive are owned by them & paid for because MJ said they didn’t own them or Ali has no money, something like that. So should we expect someone to bring out a folder at these reunions now? 🙂

    • realhousewifeva says:

      Yes it was picked up for another season.

      • lillybee says:

        I was hoping that it wasn’t picked up.

      • TexasTart says:

        Awww, come on Lilybee, don’t take away my little moment of glee! 😉
        Thank you realhousewifeva for the confirmation! I presume they would be filming in Miami soon, based on her comment since the vast majority of her followers are housewife fans. I was surprised and disappointed in Ana’s behavior at the reunion, so I’m not sure what we will get from her in S3.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Yeah, she was baaaaaaad at the reunion. simply awful.

          • chismosa says:

            I like Ana. I think she’s gorgeous and loved that she is smart and stands up for herself. She said some cutting things at the reunion but I think she just had had it with lea. I would not be able to take Lea’s underhanded remarks so I would have just HAD it by then myself !

            • Laineylainey says:

              My opinion of her has nothing to do with her looks. i should be happy, she will be back! I will be entertained by her, I ‘m sure. Until Ana kept putting Lea down for her age at the reunion…(great debating technique) I liked all of the Miami cast pretty much. Even Karent. Until the reunion i was bored by Ana but not bothered, I enjoyed liking all of them… but it was kinda boring. So now it will be more interesting. Maybe. Unless we have to continue watching her pine away for her ex husband..and their unwitty banter. I think the immaturity and aggressive cray behavior she displayed at the reunion will make things more interesting for me. Prior to that she was a real snore fest with a pathetic storyline. It would be cool to see her dating. I cannot tolerate her ex, though. Wonder if she’s still washing his skivvies.

              • chismosa says:

                I get it Lainey I was just pointing out I find her one of the more naturally beautiful of all the HWs

                I just hate Lea so I didn’t mind her going after her. We’ll see what happens I like seeing the Latin cast, it’s totally my thing. Lol

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  I like watching the mostly Latin cast, we have Russian, Polish and American, too, right? It’s the most diverse cast in terms of different cultures. Miami is so rich in diversity; I hope they continue to include more cultures and backgrounds. I love Miami,..but sometimes it was a bit snoozy. Lea provided you someone to “hate” (your word! not mine) but I don’t hate her. I never hated any of them…Ana did greatly annoy me at the reunion – actually, initially I felt so disappointed with her childish tactics because prior to that even though I thought her storyline with her ex was pathetic, I DID respect her for her intelligence and eloquence. I don’t hate her, …yet. Perhaps this upcoming season will sway me to the dark side; perhaps not. But I am looking forward to seeing what happens with the dynamic of the group now that Ana has basically said that Lea’s too old to matter.

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

    Last night on WWHL Andy said that Brandi “dropped a bomb” on Kyle at the reunion…..

    • realhousewifeva says:

      Yah I am interested in what that is about

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I’m not a big Kyle fan, but I hope it’s not about Mo and Kyle’s marriage. That would be unnecessary.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I’m thinking that it might be Lainey…. I hope not. Maybe it’s totally unrelated to their marriage…

      • L.A. Chica says:

        I agree, not a fan of those two but I do appreciate what appears to be a loving marriage and only wish them the best in that regard. I hope Brandi’s bomb is totally unrelated.

      • realhousewifeva says:

        I don’t think so…seems like Kyle and Brandi are going to be working on a small part in a movie together. If Brandi was going after Kyle’s marriage, I don’t think Kyle would work with her on anything non-housewives related. I could be wrong, though

    • T-Rex says:

      I hope it’s that it was the truth about how VilekKyle and the HoofMaloof were behind the “takedown” of LisaVpump this season, and that she used that LoserBiotchFayeKR to do her dirty work regarding the whole mess between Brandi and the Hoof

    • Contessa says:

      I heard that as well, and it can go two ways, Bravo hype or something huge. It will be interesting, as I think the BH women simmer and explode just a bit, they will never get wild like the crazies on NJ or the total nuts on Atlanta. By the way since when did Nene become the end all and be all on marriage values? There are so many things to do in Las Vegas, that I can’t imagine wanting to go to a strip club and getting up close and personal with a shaved hoochie. I give Porsha credit for not going – who knows what the real story is about her marriage, but she was strong enough to stand up to all of the women. By the way I don’t have an issue with strippers or strip clubs, never been to one and I would go if the opportunity arose (out of curiousity), but I am not going to stare at a shaved kitty cat – Duh??? Guess it makes for a good story line for Bravo.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Contessa-I love a girls night out and girls trip but I wouldn’t go to the strip club. I would rather go dancing and gambling!! I don’t know why they all had a problem with Porsha not going-it didnt mean they couldn’t go!!!!

        • L.A. Chica says:

          I’m not a fan of Vegas but if I were there I’d join you in the dancing and gambling, Jill. Hey, let’s go see Curque du Soleil!

          Just not into strip clubs, I think it would be too depressing.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            OHHHHHHHH I love Vegas!!!!! I can’t wait to go back someday-coincidentally I had a “hook” at The Palms. We were VIP the whole time-it was incredible. I didn’t stay there but we did hang out there b/c of our VIP status!!!!

        • realhousewifeva says:

          I wouldn’t do a strip club, either

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            If I told my girlfriends that made plans to go to a strip club I can only imagine what they would say….

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              Especially to see girls…I went to see boys strip the off time for things like bachelorettes and stuff like that. Although it’s cheesy, IMO it’s a lot less grimy that because there isn’t ‘lap dancing’ and ‘champagne rooms’.

  27. AZGirl says:

    Happy Birthday WasLurking! Wow. Last night was really a strange episode. Paris and then on to Marisa listing her FIL house with Mauricio, then Kyle clothing store. Why is it the viewer has to have Maury’s real estate listings shoved in our face? I understand that Marisa probably wanted the exposure but at that price range I don’t believe there is a viewer that could avoid that home. I changed the channel. I am really done with all of Maury’s free advertising.
    Kyle’s clothing store is a joke. I would NEVER wear any of what was shown last night. Kyle has terrible taste. Yolanda’s comment that one of the pieces was vintage and not new cracked me up.
    Pam Dana was a hot mess. Really? How low does the bar go with Bravo.

    • Contessa says:

      Hi AZ, I am with you on the freaky advertising for Mauricio, too much and after all the house is already sold – so who cares.

      Kyles clothing choices are like a replay of Golden Girls. Half the time those caftan sleeves look she is going to be propelled into outer space. The things she was choosing with her partners were ugly with all the wild patterns going on. Also both dresses she tried on at home were tight in the bust, and smashed her boobs…doesn’t she have a good seamstress? I thought the solid colored short dress looked much better, except for the tight bust. I don’t like all those print fabrics. I am short and I wear mostly solids or a print top with black, brown, beige or white slacks. I am also very cautious about my prints as well. I am more of an Eileen Fisher fan wearing monotone colors to give me more height.

      • L.A. Chica says:

        LOL Golden Girls, yes! That’s her style. I want to go out to BH and check out the store, see what is actually being sold there and the prices. For the benefit of the group I am willing to make a recon expedition. I just can’t buy anything (unless there’s a REALLY good sale on something I like) because I can’t see spending $3,000 on a dress, even if I could afford to. Which I can’t.

      • Powell says:

        Contessa I’m short and I wear prints. You have to wear the right scale print. I love Eileen Fisher also.

        • Contessa says:

          I love Eileen Fisher, but have to be very selective and watch carefully when the items go on sale. I have pieces that are almost ten years old and am still wearing them. I do have some bright prints, but am careful with them so I don’t look as wide as I am tall – ha ha.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        I’m not a fan of Kyle (why do I always say that…it’s like someone’s paying me)…but anyway, I love the way she dresses. It’s pretty, blingy, fresh and easy…WHAT??!!! i LIKE it!!!!

    • L.A. Chica says:

      There are some viewers who could afford that home. You’d be surprised at who watches! But it would have been pointless as a means of using the show to sell it, there’s much too long of a time lag between filming and airing. Besides, it wouldn’t need that kind of publicity.

      Showing the Zanuck home on Bravo was to spice up the show, imho. It is a beautiful home and we don’t get to see something like that on TV very often. At least not since the days of Robin Leach and his “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.”

      • pat says:

        Yes, it was probably just as simple as that. Bravo wanted to get a peek at the house for the show. It’s what Andy loves so much about the BH franchise. He can’t get over the level of wealth there.

        • iceNfire says:

          I didn’t understand why Morris expect Kyle to be at the Zanuck house. What does she have to do with Real Estate? Just another excuse to plug her store. I Really wonder how it’s doing. Maybe another reason she stopped blogging is that So many comments were about her bad taste in clothes

  28. T-Rex says:

    The RealEstate issue with Marissa so House was sold in November of 2012 well after filming, so no clue as to when the Marissa and Murray scene was filmed, on a side note this was a Hilton and Hyland complete transaction so NO way Murray was involved. The buyers were represented by none other than Jeff Altman and his brother who both work for Hilton and Hyland as well.

  29. iceNfire says:

    Good Morning – I’m so far behind, I never did catch up with you guys yesterday 😦 Back to the top to do some speed reading. Hope all is well with Everyone 🙂

  30. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Another thing that Brandi said on WWHL is that she is writing another book. She said this one wont be about Eddie so I’m wondering what it will be about? It can’t be about the HWs b/c we know she can’t talk about that so what will she write about??

  31. Exit4 says:

    AZGirl- I had to LMAO at your comment. How low dies the bravo bar go? I hope you were being rhetorical….because god knows it goes pretty low! LOL. I got a kick out of that for some reason.

    The best seasons for HWs are the first seasons. Sure there’s drama, but the ladies aren’t jaded yet. It has a more real vibe. Even if they are aware of the ither deanchiaes, they are still naive to the “reality” of the show. Look at NJ first season, Teresa dressed in denim capris and flip flops…just like most of us real jersey housewives. Now she vaccuums in leopard. Her hair and makeup was more natural. She’s so overdone and it ages her. Although at her book signing she looked more subdued. Maybe it’s just for filming-but I don’t like her look. Even Caroline, she was chunky with a bad haircut. She looked like a jersey mama. And lord knows jacs face is totally different. Even Melissa looks totally different. I miss season ones.

    I don’t know if its bravo doing it, or if the viewers claim they don’t want it but secretly do-by season 3 they are all BSC and of course, a show killer is brought on (Melissa, Brandi, Joanna, Tamara, Avila-cant think of any more.) to suck the life out of it.

    How much longer can it last? Maybe I’m crazy, but I line boring. Like Camille. It’s just that they are surrounded by crazy-that makes them boring. Bravo never let’s these shows go with the originals long enough. Except NY, they were ready for a change!

  32. rabblerouser2010R says:

    I can’t beleive what revolting mess Dana was last night. I wonder if her twitter blew up over it.
    It was interesting seeing a sober looking Taylor sitting across from her, I wonder if it occurred to her how that is exactly how she behaved so many times before.

    I’m still not feeling Taylor at all but I thought she handled the situation with Yolanda last night pretty well and shut the thing down with a deserved apology.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I thought Taylor was very nice with Yolanda-I don’t think I could have been as nice. She was trying to apologize but Yolanda wasn’t having it. She wanted to reprimand Taylor. I get that she was ill during filming so I think Yolanda should just get a pass for the season.

      • Exit4 says:

        Weirdly enough, I always thought since season one, when Taylor is lucid she comes across as very well spoken and I do think she has a decent level if intelligence. I’ve always believed she made poor life choices and wanted things so much she was willing to do all the wrong things to get them. It’s sad, because if she was willing to work at it, I think she’d be successful I’m her own.

        Also, the key word here is lucid! She needs to lay off the booze. She’s a hot mess.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          I don’t think she is dumb either. I think she is very crafty but not in a good way. I still think she is a total con artist and has no moral substance.

          • Exit4 says:

            Cons by nature (if she is one and past evidence does suggest that’s true) are usually intelligent and well spoken. Otherwise, other normally intelligent people wouldn’t get scammed. Especially if the con artist has the illusion of success. They did a whole study about this and most people who end up being taken for a ride are people you’d believe would be smarter. Look at Bernie madoff. I’ve even seen this in my own life, and it boggles the mind! Me? I’m cynical and question everything because i got conned once (because I’m nice, not stupid-now i can spot it) but after that-let’s just say it’ll NEVER happen again. 🙂

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        I can’t say that I thought Taylor was being nice, I think she did deserve to get called out. But it seemed to throw Yolanda off her game that Taylor didn’t deny it like before or get defensive. I guess Yo, didn’t get the ‘script’. I felt kind of bad for Yo in that scene but she did seem like she was clouded and definitely not as on point as she comes across in her talking heads.

        I thought Yo was a bit abrupt with some of the stylists at the photo shoot. I am thinking she might have a bit of Ramona in her where she says things that while largely truthful lack tact or some sensitivity.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          I’m talking nice in the sense that she didn’t tell Yolanda to STFU and let her speak. Yolanda likes to be bossy!!!

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            I agree, I bet Yolanda is probably very difficult to work for.

            • Rebecca says:

              Well, wait….. Yolanda said this was the moment when she knew something was “off” and she needed to get some help from her doctor. Maybe that isn’t the real Yolanda, and she felt like she couldn’t control her irritability because of the lyme disease.

              • rabblerouser2010R says:

                If it was just a single moment, I would think that might be the case. But both time when she was dealing with stylists and PA at photo shoots (her and her daughter;s ) she said things that were very abrupt. Also when she told the laborer that he needed to learn to speak English….I think if she comes back for season two, we might see more of her inner Ramona.

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  an “inner Ramona???!!!” hahahaha!!! I love that! It’s an oxymoron if ever I heard one. LOL!!

              • pat says:

                Knowing the diagnosis she would soon receive, I could see Yolanda struggling a bit in those moments. Yet she still had more class and couth in her pinky than most of the ladies.

  33. rabblerouser2010R says:

    I just wanted to share with you all that today is my youngest daughters 4th birthday. She wants chocolate cake for DINNER…but she will have to settle on having it for dessert.

    On my twitter profile I posted a few pictures of the girls at their birthday party.

  34. Powell says:

    NMD I can’t wait for next week either when FayeK blames Brandi for A & P’s marriage breaking up. I sure want to know how’d she pull that out of her hat.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I almost bust a gut when Yolanda pretty much told Faye to catch herself on…and then walked away with Brandi spoiling Faye’s audition….it won’t even make a good soliloquy because I think most of us will fast forward.

    • Rebecca says:

      Brandi is omnipotent – just ask Adrienne.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Well, I wish she would fix the health care issues of our country. Use your omnipotence for good, Brandi!!

  35. realhousewifeva says:

    I really want to know why Bravo didn’t ask Marisa or Camille to the reunion. Next week Marisa basically accuses Brandi of having a thing for her husband, Dean. Coupled with Camille accusing Lisa of not owning SUR, plus lying about her convo with Brandi…this would make interesting Reunion convo!

    • Exit4 says:

      I know people speculate all over about this stuff, but I kind of believe people like Camille, Adrienne and marissa really just don’t give a freak! They’re rich already, have other things they can be doing and just can’t be bothered. Invited or not-I think it’s no skin off their (fake) noses.

      I remember last year when Lynn was still with us and Julie left bethenneys company and show. Lynn almost seemed mad at her and I know that it was pointed out to her. Don’t know if she was, but I always figured that she was such a fan and supporter of bethenney that it seemed inconceivable that julie would walk away. As if she was ungrateful. I think working for B was probably hellish and ahe was burnt.

      I kinda believe a lot of the fans can’t fathom walking away from it all. Because there are a lot of fans out there who see it as so wonderful from the outside looking in. That’s why I think so many of the bloggers and twitter people go after eachbother so hard, they are so desperate to be on the inside or at least give the illusion they are.

      Whenever someone goes, it’s always “they were fired”! I’m loathe to bring it up but I believe Dina manzo walked away-never bought that forgery story for a second, but I’m sooo not going there because its a cluster you know what of arguing! Same with Adrienne(no matter what the sources say) same with Camille. Even Alexis in OC. Not that people don’t get let go, because they do, obviously, but I do think there are some women who say F this, it’s not worth it, I’m done. Because on the inside it’s no where near as fab as it sounds. The ones who stay and allow themselves to get beat up year after year either need the fame or the money.

      I probably sound nuts right? 😉 I just do believe there are people who can walk away or never walk in. Rod Stewart’s wife turned BH down. They just don’t care about the show, the other women or the viewers. They care about themselves and just say its not worth their time.

      • Contessa says:

        I think Adrienne said I am going and Bravo said you are fired. Camille is walking away as it doesn’t do anything for her and carrying around the facade of St. Camille from season 2 is getting to be too much for her. Basically she got to say quite a few things about Kelsey and made her point and whatever she wanted to accomplish. I think her life revolves around her kids, her new BF, and her money. Adrienne and her legal team caused a lot of strife over at Bravo with regard to her surrogacy etc…which in my mind was nothing to be ashamed of. If I had been blessed with children and surrogacy was my only option I would have no problem being up front about it, especially at her age. I think Adrienne is a really nasty person and tries to lord it over evryone and anyone. She thinks saying someone sells stories to a tabloid is just a fluff thing that she said in anger – she still doesn’t get that it involves Lisa’s personal and business integrity. Ad is the biggest fool I have seen on TV or in public life. She has the biggest sense of entitlement that I have ever seen. I am still not over the fact she was so pi$$ed off about Lisa’s daughter going to another hotel/casino for her bachelorette – well I didn’t see her offering the Palms or asking about the daughter’s wedding and plans. Besides the place she chose is supposedly owned by a close/dear friend of the family…that offered this to her.

        • Exit4 says:

          I don’t have much to say about Adrienne’s personality, but I do think the legal stuff gets overblown in the tabloids and online. And in BH’s case, by brandi. like danielle in nj. The people behind these shows are much wiser then we are. They are ready for anything, even legal stuff. Happens in every show. It’s unavoidable. I guarantee most of what gets dissected online means nothing behind the scenes. It’s the stuff we DON’T know that’s probably way more fun!

      • realhousewifeva says:

        Interesting viewpoint! I tend to disagree for the most part, but some of what you say makes sense. It wasn’t really what I was asking, but it’s okay. LOL. I was just wondering why Bravo didn’t bring Marisa and Camille to the reunion even if just for a few minutes, because I really wanted to hear what they had to say!

        Anyway, back to your post: I think the fame gets to people’s heads, regardless of how much money they have. It’s one thing to be rich, and another to be invited to fabulous events, walk the red carpet, get asked to do photo shoots, to appear on big name talk shows, etc. That is intoxicating to a famewhore, and in my opinion, ANYONE who does a reality show is a famewhore to some degree.

        I think Camille and Marisa were very much upset that they weren’t invited to the reunion. They both took to twitter to talk about it. Camille seemed surprised and said she felt like the black sheep of the family all season. When reports came out that she was boycotting the show, she made sure to deny those rumors very quickly. Marisa, even now, is tweeting that she now knows how this all works and how to deal with the ladies, and if she is asked back next season that she will totally bring it. She has retweeted people who said they hope she comes back next season. Sounds like she would like to be asked back, in my opinion. Check out her twitter.

        I like Dina, but that’s another one that I don’t think just willingly walked away from the show. She went right from Housewives, to Dina’s Party and now she is filming another reality show documenting her life. Doesn’t sound like someone who doesn’t care about the spotlight. Not to mention that disaster of a show she taped for VH1 showcasing her wedding, even before RHoNJ.

        Alexis is back on OC this coming season. She asked for more money, they said no and let her go, and then she asked for her job back without the raise. Several of her castmates tweeted it and she never denied it.

        Probably the ONLY one that I believe was okay with going is Adrienne Maloof (and some of the early OC ladies back in the day), and that’s for obvious reasons. She would have been crazy to come back after bringing in her lawyers to control the show’s content. The minute the episode aired where they hid what Brandi said about Adrienne, I posted that Adrienne would not be back next season. Bravo doesn’t mess around, and Adrienne had to know she wouldn’t be back. However, I give her a pat on the back for trying to stay relevant by dating Rod Stewart’s son. Funny how she dumped him the minute she realized she won’t be asked back next season. Allegedly 😉

        • iceNfire says:

          @va – I think Bravo was punishing Kyle for siding with Adri and all the lawsuit crap by not inviting Marisa and Camille to the reunion wh may have been in Kyle’s corner

          @ Exit – I think you gave Kyle an easy out with “They’re rich already, have other things they can be doing” If she is smart enough to use it

        • Exit4 says:

          Cracking up because I totally knew I went left field of your comment, but it was semi-related so I went with it! We actually do kind of agree, it is intoxicating, the idea of being famous. Then you get famous and it’s a hangover half the time! But to even go there there you have to have at least somewhat of a fame whore dream. I’ll have to look at Camille and marissas twitters.

          With Alexis, I knows she’s back, but when she left originally I think it was tamra tweeting away she was fired. I guess I didn’t explain it right, but it just seems that people like to always cry fired. Especially if they aren’t well liked, since it diminishes them. Even if they weren’t actually fired or if it was mutual.

          I agree that Dina has a desire to be in this realm. But I do believe she left housewives on her own. I think she felt she could do better without it and Danielle is scary toxic. I think her zen peace thing is important to her and she wanted to maintain that, which would be impossible on that show! I don’t blame her. Her relationship with bravo is too good for her to have been canned. Actually, I kinda think (and this is totally a theory on my part) that the family feud we’ve been stuck watching for 2 seasons may have been meant to be between the manzo/lauritas with Teresa as the buffer and Caroline in the middle. Jac and Dina have never, ever liked each other (which no one knew until recently-but jac did scream at her season 1finale) and I wonder if they were the sister I laws who were really meant to feud. Lord knows jac would have gone along, maybe Dina would not. The story has always been the rift with them is they didn’t leave with her, but think about it. Is Dina that stupid to believe others would walk away from it for her, family or not? I don’t think so. I think the rift is because they were going in the direction of feuding (subtle, behind the scenes, we know how this works!) and extended from there. Mainly jac was ready to “expose” Dina and Caroline didn’t stop it. Who knows? Any thing is possibl, it’s not tv she’s leaving its just that show.

          Now if I was a “twitter blogger insider” I would state that all as fact from my “sources”. Totally from my warped brain though!

          • Rebecca says:

            Totally agree with you Exit.

            I also think that maybe there was a sense that Adrienne WOULD come to the reunion and they would have enough catfight footage to last three, four, or five episodes long. Marissa and Camille would have been in the way.

            • Exit4 says:

              Maybe. I hate the reunions. Too much screaming. I wish they could find a different format but I guess if people are watching….

    • L.A. Chica says:

      I find it hard to believe that Marisa would seriously think Brandi is interested in her husband, and I also find it hard to believe that even if she did believe it, that she would care. Okay, that last part was mean. I’m sorry, Marisa. 😈😇

      But I am serious about the first part. Brandi is not a husband stealer, she just thinks Marisa takes Dean for granted and wants Marisa to value him more. I’ve seen this before in real life where friends will be super attentive and nice to the spouse who is being treated badly by the other spouse, both as a way to affirm the mistreated one’s esteem and as a way to tell the other spouse that their target deserves to be treated better.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Funny that Brandi thinks she is the one who should give Marisa marriage advice though…

        • Catseye says:

          Yeah, that’s true.

        • Contessa says:

          La Chica, totally agree with you. I’ve lived through a cheating husband (now ex), and it is such a blow to go through this, as it strikes you in so many ways. You never get back that level of trust again (well I haven’t). I take nothing for granted in a relationship, and know the signs of wandering (I knew in my heart before I had the hard evidence in my marriage). Marissa treats her husband horribly on TV – it is not cute or funny, it is insulting and she denigrate her marriage/husband every opportunity she gets. I don’t believe for one minute Brandi is interested or making a play for Marissa’s husband…when you’ve been cheated on a married man is the last person you want to be with. When I began dating again, I met a man that I was sure was the one…he had everything, personality, he was funny, sexy, smart and we were so compatible/combusible in many ways. However after the first month he started going away for weekends and I made it my business to find out what the heck was going on as my radar was on high alert. The separation/we are filing for divorce was BS – he was working here in AZ during the week
          and flying back to Vegas on alternate weekends. That was the end and boy was I angry. So my point is Brandi has been through hell and back, while her ex is living the life of a pet husband with his wife footing all his bills and all they do is play for the camera, using Brandi’s children for photo-ops when she is not allowed to have them on the show with her. Brandi is much younger than I am, but she is not a fool, and this woman has now found her center and will not take a backset to anyone – that is my opinion on the subject.

          • Contessa says:

            One last thing, my divorce was the best thing to happened to me, my ex was an idiot and he is now spending his new wife’s money and she can mommy him. I prefer to have man, and not raise a child/husband – LOL!

            • Catseye says:

              So true Contessa. I know exactly what you’re talking about, down to preferring a true partner over a spoiled teenager disguised as a man.

          • L.A. Chica says:

            ITA with you Contessa, it’s so true what you are saying. I’m sorry about all you went through, you certainly deserve to be loved and honored. People like your ex and Eddie wouldn’t know a diamond if they held one in their hand. And imho you are a brilliant diamond. 🙂

        • L.A. Chica says:

          I don’t think it’s funny at all.

          It wasn’t Brandi who destroyed her marriage. Eddie was a major philanderer, he didn’t just have one affair — he had many, and simultaneously. That tells me he didn’t cheat because he was unhappy with Brandi, he cheated because he’s an asshole who couldn’t keep his pants zipped. What kind of man carries on with multiple women while his wife is pregnant with their child?

          No, I think Brandi is the perfect person to tell Marisa she should appreciate what she has with Dean.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            First-I meant funny as in ironic.
            Second-who know why her husband cheated and who really cares-he is gross and that’s all I will ever think about him. I was going more to the fact that Brandi doesn’t have a husband so how would she know how to keep one happy?what does Brandi know about a happy marriage?

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              Oh and giving your husband a “hall pass” doesn’t sound like good advice to me….EVER!!!

              • kit9 says:

                Or bringing in other women to your bedroom like Brandi did to make out with. Not smart. Just gross.

            • LaineyLainey says:

              I’ve had many people give me marital advice. All were divorced or never married. They like to share. It’s ok, they totally mean well. I have been known to say…”well, it’s been 29 years, I must be doing something right, thank goodness!”

              • LaineyLainey says:

                It really hurts their feelings, though…so I try to keep my yap shut. But it can get old…especially when it’s my mother or sisters (all divorced at least once).

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                  It’s funny that their feeling would be hurt when you are the one getting advice on a 29 year marriage!!!

                  • LaineyLainey says:

                    They are poopy-heads. NO, just kidding… They are my elders so I’m supposed to say thank you, oh wise one. It’s a cultural thing.

            • nyc mama says:

              Having a piece of paper doesn’t make one an expert.in marriage. I know plenty of unmarried women who get it and married women (and men) who don’t. Just because Brandi isn’t married doesn’t mean that she doesn’t know what it would take to make one work.

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                Being a married woman I don’t want advice from someone who doesn’t LIVE it. I think Brandi giving Marisa marriage advice such as give your husband a hall pass is just silly. It’s not her business what Marisa does with her husband. Every time someone butts into Brandi’s business it’s an outrage but her butting into Marisa’s marriage is acceptable? Now that is funny.

                • L.A. Chica says:

                  I’d have to see the full context of the “hall pass” suggestion. Sounds like something I would say in biting jest to a friend who needs a wakeup call.

                • realhousewifeva says:

                  I don’t think Brandi really has advice that I’d take when it comes to marriage (the whole letting another women in ‘with rules’ is the worst thing ever, IMO, and clearly didn’t work for her) but we really don’t know that Brandi is seriously giving advice and we have no idea how the text convo even happened. If Marisa texts Brandi about her marriage and Brandi is replying, then Marisa can’t really cry about it if she opened the door for the ‘advice’ So I can’t really form an opinion just yet.

                  I do agree with Brandi (and every other person in the world basically) who thinks Marisa is too hard on her husband and it’s just not a good look the things she says about him. IMO he must have cheated on her or something, and this is how she’s paying him back, which is why he’s putting up with it. ALLEGEDLY AND IN MY OWN MIND. lol, I just can’t imagine any other scenario where anyone would be okay with their spouse talking about them the way she does about Dean.

                  • LaineyLainey says:

                    my own daughter who has never been married, made an audible gasp when she heard how Marissa speaks to him and about him. Not putting my daughter down,..but you don’t have to be a genius to know when someone is being an asshat.

                  • L.A. Chica says:

                    Hmmm… Hadn’t thought about Marisa getting back at Dean for misdeeds as a possibility. I hope not. 😦

                    As for Brandi and Eddie’s threesome, ITA. Does she say in her book whether she regrets that?

              • LaineyLainey says:

                NYC, I hear ya. But let’s use this example: I am overweight. Do I give advice to others on how to lose weight? Intellectually, I know how. I don’t or haven’t done the work (yet) to actually be a successfully loser of pounds. So I refrain from giving dieting and exercise advice – for that very reason. It would be awkward and I imagine, quite unwelcome.

            • Exit4 says:

              I suspect that life with Brandi is not as wonderful as the people who love her believe it to be. 😉 doesn’t excuse the cheating though.

            • realhousewifeva says:

              I don’t think anyone has to be a marriage expert to know that saying you aren’t attracted to your husband or that you are bored of him and think about having sex with other men is probably not the best thing ever. For all we know, she could just be joking in that Brandi way of hers when she says the hall pass thing. There obviously has to be more to that conversation than Brandi randomly texting Marisa to tell her that.

            • L.A. Chica says:

              I know you meant it in the ironic sense, and I don’t think it’s ironic. Not in the least.

              I don’t believe one has to be currently married to understand what makes for a good relationship. Brandi HAS been married, and she knows what it’s like to be taken for granted. Remember, SHE was the one who left Eddie, and for good reason. She wasn’t cherished, she wasn’t treated with respect, and she got fed up.

              From my perspective, I would be telling Marisa the exact same things Brandi tells her, and I’m happily married (though I left my first husband for — get this — taking me for granted. 😉 ) Brandi is absolutely right on this and I’ll say it again: she is the perfect person to be warning Marisa.

              I see Marisa as not treating her husband as if she cherishes him and their marriage, and she definitely does not treat him with respect. It follows that human nature being what it is, he will eventually say “enough” and move on. Unless he’s a complete doormat, but I doubt it. Maybe he’ll wait until the children are a little older?

              Speaking of that, Marisa has often mentioned on the show that she misses her babies but not her husband. Her favorite thing to do us to cuddle with them, but not her husband. Well guess what? Her children will grow up and move out, and then it’ll just be her and Dean. What kind of marriage sans kids is she preparing for? One without Dean?

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                So Brandi being cheated on gives her the ability to advise Marisa on marriage? I don’t get it. What if Kim was giving the advice? She has been married so does she qualify? I think brandi should MYOB about Marisa’s marriage and worry about herself. If Marisa butted into Brandi’s life like this I can only imagine what Brandi’s reaction would be.

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  I’ll bet people in hell could tell us how to get to heaven. Same concept. no? sort of?

                • L.A. Chica says:

                  Yes, Brandi being cheated on gives her the insight to advise Marisa — who constantly tells people in front of her husband that she wants to sleep with other men — on her marriage, and for the reasons I gave.

                  As for Kim, she may very well be in a position to also give Marisa advice, I don’t know.

                  We learn from others’ success but if we’re wise we’ll also learn from failure, whether it’s others’ or our own.

                  If Brandi were acting like a fool the way Marisa is, I believe she’d welcome a friend’s perspective. Brandi has shown herself to be open to constructive criticism, we see the evidence of that in the way she listens to Lisa and takes her advice.

                  • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                    What is about Brandi that makes people want to protect her? Even when Brandi says that she shouldn’t have done something or said something people still want her to be right. Why is that? (This is an honest question-no a smart ass reply to any of you).

                    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                      (NOT a smart ass reply)

                    • LaineyLainey says:

                      Hey, I love the girl. She was dealt a rough hand by Eddie..maybe that’s the crux of it. There’s a part of you that roots for her, too (since you did participate in the Brandi fundraiser and even recommended her book to others).

                    • L.A. Chica says:

                      I don’t think it’s a question of wanting her to be right, it’s a question of simply BEING right when she’s right. But of course she’s not always right, no one is.

                      Brandi is a good soul with a big heart who sometimes puts her foot in her mouth. She’s not calculating and conniving, and when she says the wrong thing it’s an honest reaction that often comes from her sense of needing to defend herself. Sometimes she doesn’t go about that the right way. BUT unlike a lot of people in this world she acknowledges her mistakes, owns them, apologizes, and learns.

                    • L.A. Chica says:

                      Jill, I didn’t take your question as being smart-ass. I hope my answer helps, though!
                      🙂

                    • Exit4 says:

                      It’s as if she can do no wrong ever. But she should stay out of other people’s marriages. Everyone should. It’s like counting people’s money-dont do it especially if you don’t want people counting yours!

                    • L.A. Chica says:

                      I don’t think she can do no wrong, she’s definitely made mistakes. I do appreciate that she owns up to them.

                      As for other people’s marriages maybe I’m just a meddling nosy Rosie. 😉

                      Seriously, in general I agree with you but I do think there are certain circumstances that call for interventions of varying degrees. It can get sticky, though.

                    • Cruickal says:

                      It’s all about perspective of people. I’ve been a lurker for awhile on this site. I tried posting once before but didn’t see it go through. People just want to root for the underdog, but its up to that individual person on who the “underdog” actually is. I feel like most people see that in terms of finances when it comes to the housewives. I think it’s hypocritical for anyone to take the stance of Brandi butting into Marisa marriage and offering advice a good thing but seeing Kim butting into Taylor’s drinking and giving her an intervention a ridiculous idea. None of the parties in either of these instances have clean hands, but if you have a favorite or someone you really detest it alters the perspective of how someone sees things. Brandi shouldn’t have discussed Marisa’s marriage, Marisa should not be so degrading to her husband, Taylor shouldn’t drink as much as she did, and Kim is in no way ready to give advice on someone else’s drinking. Just my opinions of course but I think that is why some people want to root for Brandi but then again who really knows if that’s what happens, I have to say sometimes bravos teaser commercials are misleading. Last weeks looked like Yolanda was gonna get into a grand altercation with Taylor and this was gonna be crazy, but then when we see the show Taylor’s response was just “yeah I was wrong and sorry about that” and this crazy drama kind of went out the window. Granted Yolanda tried to keep it alive but there was no fuel to that fire.

  36. WindyCityWondering says:

    I just can’t get enough of those Bravo videos of Yolanda shutting both Faye and Adrienne down on their gossip and bs!! Kyle’s team has crashed and burned – so whatever Brandi drops on her at the reunion will be well deserved.

    • BB says:

      I love the way Yolanda tells Adrienne not to trash talk; that if she has heard Brandi say something bad about her, spill it or shut up. I love the way Yolanda says she doesn’t like speculation and if you haven’t seen something with your own eyes, you shouldn’t be spreading stories around. To summarize, I love the way Yolanda shuts those biddies down.

      • TexasTart says:

        I love it too! No-nonsense, logic…is she really a housewife?!, lol I hope she can beat the lyme disease and grace us with her presense another season!

      • Powell says:

        And she does it so calm and ladylike. I.love Yolanda. I could hang out w/her.

  37. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Thank you Chica for knowing I wasn’t being a smart ass!!
    I get your answer and Lainey’s too but I still don’t “get” defending someone when they know they are wrong. People feel a need to protect Brandi from any hint of negativity yet Brandi put herself in a position to be judged-by being on the show, writing a tell all book…etc. And Brandi does say some pretty outlandish things!! I love Ramona-LOVE HER but I know when she is acting the fool and there is no defending that!! I don’t think there is a HW I would defend like I see people defend Brandi. I think they put themselves out there to become famous and adored and they have to deal with the sh*t that comes with it. I don’t think of Brandi any differently b/c her husband cheated on her and that they may be b/c I wouldn’t want that for myself. I would hope I would stand up and be a grown ass woman-stronger and wiser….just like Contessa has done.
    Lainey-I do root for her-I have no hate for her. I’m glad her book is doing well and I’m glad I made my contribution to the fund!!!! But I don’t have a need to stick up for her-at all. I feel like she gets herself into a bit of trouble and the tries to “little meek cheated on woman” her way out-I don’t respect it.

    • Exit4 says:

      You’re kinder then me, I don’t root for her at all! FTR, I do not like country music so it’s non Leann related!

    • L.A. Chica says:

      Oh! There you are, Jill! 😆 It got a little squished up there, glad we’re here.

      I’m not sure I understand what you mean by saying that people are defending Brandi when they know she’s wrong. Do you mean they’re defending her wrong position or they’re defending her as a person while acknowledging that her position wrong? I will do the latter but not the former. Why? Because I believe she is a good soul with a big heart who makes mistakes and learns from them.

      • Rebecca says:

        It’s the hypocrisy that people are pointing out – not necessarily defending Brandi. Prime example is Kyle “you hold grudges Lisa” Richards. Brandi acknowledged mouthing off about Adrienne’s personal life was wrong. She apologized over and over and over until we were sick of it. (In the meantime, Kyle was repeating the stupid gossip to everyone she knew). Yet, Kyle and her croonies keep bringing it up – AND IT’S NOT EVEN HER GRUDGE TO BEAR.

        I would kill to just blurt out STFU to people who need to stop talking out their ass once in a while. Okay, everyday. There’s an honesty about her that’s fun to watch, and yes it even gets her into trouble. I don’t defend her for gossiping, but Adrienne and Kim have said far worse to Brandi and nobody calls them out for it.

        • Exit4 says:

          If I had a nickel for everyone I’d like to tell to STFU…..LOL. I do not like Brandi but you are right about Kyle. Especially since she chose to tell the world her own sister was an alcoholic. In my experience, when people hammer one person for doing something and ignore it in others, it’s usually because they don’t like or respect the person they’re picking apart. Or they believe what one person is saying as opposed to the other. Different set of rules….I hope that makes sense!

          • L.A. Chica says:

            Yes, that makes sense. 🙂

            And I agree with you both about the hypocrisy of someone like Kyle.

        • kit9 says:

          Her apology-just one that I count in the email-was late and completely insincere. Brandi has since said she didn’t think she said anything wrong in blabbing about the surrogacy. So, her apology was bs. And, what gossip are you talking about Kyle repeating? And, Kyle didn’t keep bringing it up. BRANDI did. It drives me crazy that nobody holds Brandi, a grown a** 40 yo woman responsible for the crap that comes out of her mouth. The only reason Kyle asked why she was so po’d at Adrienne at that lunch at Sur was because Brandi was making nasty comments about Ad first. And, if was Camille that brought up Adrienne in LV, not Kyle. And, it wasn’t Kyle that brought her up at her dinner party..someone else asked where she was. And, in all cases, it was Brandi, apparently lacking the self control of a two year old, at the mere mention of Ad, went on another bashing tirade. But, somehow it’s Kyle’s fault. Then it was Brandi who was whining and lying about a lawsuit that never existed to anyone that would listen.

          • Rebecca says:

            The Caroline Manzo “you apology was not sincere enough” statement needs to be put away. It was good enough for everyone – but Adrienne. Even Paul has finally accepted her apology.

            We watched Kyle gossip to Faye – we saw it. It was on the air. Don’t deny that.
            We saw her gossip with her husband – on the air. We saw it.
            We saw her bring it up at dinner with Adrienne and Paul. It was on the air. We all saw it.

            Brandi wasn’t saying nasty crap about Adrienne first. Adrienne was talking smack about Lisa. Brandi said she would not engage. (Kyle did though) Adrienne was angry that Brandi repeated that she would not engage and went after her, as did Bitchy Bernie, the shitty chef. WE SAW IT. The facebook posts and tweets were posted here. On this blog.

            Then she gets a letter from Adrienne’s lawyer saying she’s about to get sued. When you get this letter, you prepare for a lawsuit. You get a lawyer. You put one on retainer. She needed a good lawyer to stack up against a Maloof lawyer.

            Your semantics are missing 80% of what we all saw happening on the air, on social media, and right here on this blog. Adrienne and Kyle will never, ever, ever, be considered for canonization.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              I don’t think Paul accepting Brandi’s apology had anything to do with Brandi and everything to do with pissing off Adrienne.

            • L.A. Chica says:

              Ok now this is interesting. Rebecca, I am in total agreement with you here, not because of Brandi — at this point she is secondary — but because you are recounting what actually happened. It makes no difference if any of us like Brandi or don’t like her, it’s objectively the truth.

              There’s opinion and there’s fact, and while we often have differences of opinion on this blog, it’s when fact comes into play that it becomes difficult to understand why and how there is disagreement.

              For instance, whether someone thinks it’s right or wrong to give another person marital advice is a subjective matter of opinion. But whether someone thinks person A keeps raising an issue vs another who thinks it’s person B keeps raising an issue, that’s objectively provable with things like video and social media records.

          • Constance says:

            Excellent comment. I can’t understand how people are defending a 40 year old women for behavior they would condemn from any friend or family member

    • realhousewifeva says:

      Just like you probably criticize Brandi more than other housewives, because you dislike her and she probably annoys you…maybe other people choose to defend her a little more than other housewives because they like her a lot? Or maybe they don’t think she’s wrong. I think after a while we get to know certain housewives sense of humor, sarcasm, etc.and identify with some more than others. Sometimes we tend to let things slide with people we like, and on the flip side we tend to really get annoyed by any little thing people we don’t like do.

      For example, last week Lisa was REALLY annoying about the Kim thing. However, I kind of identified with Lisa because sometimes if I say something stupid and i know I upset someone, I then try too hard to “fix” it by talking about it with everyone and trying to get their opinion, and wanting the upset person to talk to me about it, even when they aren’t ready to talk…and it all becomes very obnoxious. So, while I recognize how annoying Lisa was, I also wasn’t mad at her for it, because I identified with what she was doing. Does that make sense?

      Also, the whole convo about Brandi giving Marisa advice is based on an episode that HASNT EVEN AIRED! lol, We don’t even know what happened, so how can we know if someone is wrong or right? When I watched the clip, to me it sounds like a joke when Brandi says the hall pass thing. I’ll reserve judgement for when the episode airs. Personally, while i enjoy Brandi on the show, I also say when I disagree with her. But it seems like you want people to bash her just because YOU think it’s wrong? I’m confused. lol. Why does anyone have to justify why they defend anyone?

      • Exit4 says:

        I get what you’re saying about running around fixing things…..done it! Eventually you learn just to let things go and resolve organically.

        I’m so not a Brandi fan, never was. I think she’s an idiot. Do I think she’s satan in a bikini? No. Just a garden variety bimbo. Different strokes….she is very pretty though, which is sometimes a curse!

        That being said, I do wish, just out of general kindness, that she would stop Gorga-ing herself. I think she is believing her own hype (a death knell) and getting more outrageous with the way she’s acting and the stuff she’s saying. This will lead to a quick flame out. I won’t miss her, but I do hate watching a 40 year old mother act like a total moron. It’s annoying. And its not cute. I hope she hires a good finance guy because after HWs she’s toast.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        rh- Wow-your first 2 paragraphs are really nice and and I totally got what you were saying-especially about the Lisa/Kim thing.-but then you got kind of annoyed with me for asking a question at the end. I didn’t ask anyone to answer-I just asked. I didn’t say I needed justification for anything-I was curious what is was about Brandi that made people want to protect her.
        As far as the Marisa Brandi thing-we spend hours here speculating about everything-why should the hall pass thing be any different.
        I

        • Realhousewifeva says:

          Sorry I wasn’t annoyed I guess I just didn’t understand why, when there is a healthy discussion going on, you had to question why people are defending Brandi for something you think is wrong. I’m not saying we shouldn’t speculate, I always do, but we can’t really even determine if Brandi did anything wrong yet because what if Marisa messages Brandi first and asked her for advice. Although the advice sucks, lol, then she wouldn’t be wrong for giving it. Does that make sense? I guess I just don’t understand why people have to explain their opinion.
          Here’s another example of how we view these women and who we choose to side with. in the clip, Kyle says something I totally agree with about Brandi not going after a married man after what she’s been through. Then Faye jumps in with the white party story. Now, if I liked Kyle I would think that was cool of her. But since I dont care for her, the cynical part of me feels like she and Faye sort of plan out that Faye will play ‘bad cop’ to kyles ‘good cop’ and say something on camera about Brandi that Kyle wants to share but doesn’t want coming from her mouth.

          It’s not about wrong or right always, so it’s hard to explain why we choose to defend one person over another.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            I didn’t pose the question b/c of the hall pass thing-I meant it in general people defending Brandi- and not only here on this blog. People on twitter defend her like its their job-I was curious about it.
            Anyway I liked your answer-and this one as well. I get the whole thing about Kyle-
            You don’t have to defend your opinion-that was totally not the point. At all

            • realhousewifeva says:

              Oh okay my bad, I thought it was about the hall pass thing in particular! I do agree that people on twitter, especially, get psycho with the way they defend their faves like it’s their sister or something.

              I sometimes find myself cringing at things Brandi says or does. I definitely don’t think she’s a saint. I wish she would watch her language (I HATED when she called the other women the C-word on Howard stern), I wish she would cover her boobs, and I wish she would lay of the botox. lol. But for some reason, overall, I enjoy her.

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                Well I think Ramona needs to shut up sometimes and I even have to change the channel when she says something’s-but I just love her ….idk why!!!

        • L.A. Chica says:

          I defend Brandi sometimes, that is when I believe she’s right about something. But I don’t equate defending a person’s position with protecting them. When I say defend, I mean that I’m in agreement or understand her POV. In these situations defense is reactive, while protection implies (to me) a more proactive and aggressive stance. I don’t feel a need to protect Brandi. Does that make sense?

      • pat says:

        Exactly, VA. Making petty distinctions from a show that hasn’t even aired yet, seems a bit redic. KIT9, EXIT4, and JNTJ… You all have the same voice on the subject of Brandi, so don’t feel so alone in your viewpoint. 🙂

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          I think it would be stupid to speculate if we didn’t hear the words hall pass and know that Brandi thinks its ok to bring other women into the bedroom room but knowing that she has done this in the past makes the speculating a bit more plausible.

          • Exit4 says:

            We’re alone in the island Jill. Lol. But yes, given some if Brandi’s activities in the boudoir it’s safe to see where she’s going. Oh we’ll.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              well Exit-we got kit and Carwheels with us so at least we have good company!!! Thank God this season is almost over!!! Im ready to start talking about some Jersey girls…and I aint talkin about you Exit!!!!

              • Exit4 says:

                LOL! Kit and I will have to sail on different ships for jersey. How great it was to know ye kit9! 😉

                I have a feeling jersey is going to be one part interesting and 2 parts brutal (again)!

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                  Isnt it funny how you can agree on one thing and not the other…I miss chatting with BB-we have different views on BH but agree on just about everything else..I cant wait to get back together with her!
                  I think Jersey will be hellish but we may become immune to it this season…sooner or later we have to stop giving a sh*t about these people!!!!

              • rabblerouser2010R says:

                Hey…what about me? Not that I have a strong dislike for Brandi but her IMO her schtick is getting a bit tiresome for me. I also think her and Lisa did a LOT of plotting of their own and given all the accolades they are both getting on various social media’s…next season I think they will think they are untouchable.

              • LaineyLainey says:

            • Constance says:

              I’m on the island!!

    • Catseye says:

      I liked her a whole lot better before all of her crudeness came to light. I don’t think it’s right to parade around nude in front of her sons, let alone letting her Tampon string hang out for them to notice, I don’t care for women who call other women c*nts, and after hearing about her 3somes during their marriage, and most recently that Eddie gave her vaginal warts, I find it hard to believe that “he was her EVERYthing,” as she told Scheana.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I didnt get the tampon thing either-but after reading her book I got the idea that she was from a very naked family-so if that is how she was raised she is just very comfortable with her nudity. I, however do not go around the house nude…its not my thing-I need to be clothed…in at least pjs!!!! I dont think walking around with your tampon string hanging out and chatting with your boys is something I would be comfortable with!!!
        The C word is gross-I don’t say it ever. I don’t like the sound of the word…I like bitch better!!!!

        • Contessa says:

          I like Brandi very much and always have, but there are things she does that I don’t agree with. I can understand a little boy running in the bathroom and seeing his mother’s tampon string (happened to my niece and she does not run around nude). Also happened to Kyle. Brandi is very open about her sexuality as I think her parents were total hippies and she comes from a very different pov. I came of age in the hippie generation (was a bit borderline hippie – but had to work to survive and dress the part). I personally do not like the C word either and I have used it a couple of time in my life – like referring to my ex H gf/wife. However in the case of Brandi using it to describe the HW it was not nice and I would tell her directly to her face. But Brandi has a kindness and a vulnerability that comes through on the screen and there must be something there for people like Lisa and Yolanda to take her on as a friend/mentor…. this tells me a lot about who Brandi really is.
          Also at the reunion she took on adrienne after Ad attacked Lisa with story selling to the rags. Brandi took on the big bad wolf out of a sense of loyalty – that to me is a classy thing. You cannot buy loyalty. I also don’t agree with threesomes in marriages, but it was a kiss kind of thing with no sexual intercourse involved…Brandi was happy being a hw and loved this man very much to consent to doing this. I know some women that have been in this type of position and it did not turn out well. Threesomes reek of desperation. In the long run I think Brandi should tame the f-bombs and take a few hints from Yolanda and Lisa about behavior. Lisa is very blunt about it and I have no doubt Yolanda is as well. In the meantime I believe Brandi’s heart is in the right place and that is why her likability transcends so well on the screen.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Very nicely put Contessa-I know you identify with Brandi and your respect for her comes
            through in your post
            Brandi and her 3some involved more than just kissing-I believe it was sex with a hollywood actress…a well known one.These sort of things Brandi needs to keep to herself.
            Lisa liking Brandi and “taking her on” doesnt say a lot about Brandi to me b/c knowing how Cedric had Lisa fooled for years tells me that Lisa isnt the best judge of character. I know that sounds harsh but Cedric lived with Lisa and she had no idea what a piece of crap he was.

          • Constance says:

            If I was advising my daughter on how to deal with a person like Brandi:
            1 Never tell Brandi ANYTHING you want to stay private.
            2 Don’t trust Brandi with your real feelings
            3 Never argue will Brandi. You can’t defend yourself because she is poor and has two kids….She will say nasty things about you and eventually halfheartedly apologize. Then she will make you out to be the bad person because you haven’t forgiven her.
            4 Be prepared to hear “I’m raising 2 kids alone and I’m poor” as an excuse for bad behavior.
            5 Be prepared to defend yourself if Brandi decides to lie about you. (example you are doing meth)
            6 Actually I would tell my daughter to run as far away from a person like Brandi as she possibly can.

    OMG! I never met Dana but she seems a mess. What is her beef with Brandi? Brandi is not on par with her and the other girls in this group??? She must be friends with Faye.

      Both Yo and Taylor went after Kim in their blogs, wonder what the hell Kim did…it must have been a doozie

      • catmom1 says:

        Whatever it was, I’m sure Kim will have no recollection of doing and/or saying it. I’m wondering if Kim accuses Yo of unauthorized contact w/ Kim’s dr. (after authorizing her to talk to the dr.).

      Too bad – they actually make a cute couple.

    • kit9 says:

      He didn’t even learn her last name. Wow. She was extra trashy on WWHL last night. Now we know she likes it rough. Great, really didn’t need to know that. I liked how she creeped out the bartender by the end of the night so he was losing interest in Brandi and gaining it for Andy! It reminded me of Willie Geist when he was on WWHL earlier this season with Brandi. He was so grossed out by the end of the show.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        I picked up on the bartender getting grossed out by her. I was wondering if I was imagining it.

      • L.A. Chica says:

        As much as I love Brandi, her behavior on WWHL did make me cringe. I dunno, maybe she can get away with it as a career persona, like Sarah Silverman, but while I have nothing against Silverman personally, I’m not a fan of her shtick.

        If it were me managing Brandi’s career I’d guide her be like the crass duck who turns into a lovely swan, with a little help from her friends. Imho that’s a far more broadly appealing story arc.

        Pssst! Brandi! Call me. 😉

        • L.A. Chica says:

        • Powell says:

          Sarah is alright. One thing that irks me about her is that she is attractive and likes to dress like a guy w/baseball caps, shirts over t-shirts and Jeans. The times I’ve seen her dressed up she really looks pretty.I have a thing about girls/women dressing like a girl/woman. Not saying you have to wear a dress & heels but you should dress like a girl/woman.

    Without hunting down the Brandi – Gerard discussion thread….
    I recall she blurted his me out in a “Plead the 5th” WWHL game. I understand he backed off and then later admitted it was BG but meanwhile all I can remember is a blind item out of hollywood that some other celebrities acknowledged without revealing…the item was that GB slept with everyone and their dog an not much disgression with the dogs…bottom line he was spreading STD’s like theres no tommorow ALLEGEDLY. I do not have timeline, nor links stored, it was old news and left me believing that man is a slut pig. Surely someone else here knows.

    • kit9 says:

      So, Brandi’s a walking petri dish…the f-fest with Gerard, ‘doesn’t know Brandi’s last name’ Butler. Eeek. Man, I just cannot escape the freaking housewives! Listen to this, so I’m watching the summer hardcourt season get underway and longtime tennis player, Tommy Haas, an old man in the tennis world is having a bit of a career resurrection with some decent play as of late.. so I’m watching him and the commentators start talking about Tommy’s longtime gf…the only thing I know about her is she’s not done much of note but be the daughter of some rich guy. Well, guess who the rich guy is?! None other than David Foster! Cut to a shot of him and one of his daughter’s with Yolanda in the stands. No escaping the HW’s!

        • kit9 says:

          You know, that’s what I thought but one of the commentators, who is friend’s with Tommy, just interviewed Tommy on air and described Sarah as his fiance and Tommy didn’t correct him so I guess they aren’t married. I know they’ve been together for a long time. I remember when they started dating..like 6 years ago.

            • kit9 says:

              Tommy? Yep, Tommy is super hot. He’s been in the US since he was very young, attending one of the tennis academies, so he’s very Americanized and it’s hilarious to hear him speak distinctly American expressions and slang with a still quite strong German accent! I’m a huge tennis nut and have watched him for years. He would have been a superstar probably if not for health issues. But, he’s playing well right now and he’s about to turn 35 almost ancient by tennis standards.

          • nyc mama says:

            A few months ago Yolanda twittered about David’s SIL Tommy Haas when he was playing a tourney. They are listed on the interet as married but perhaps it is just a common law marriage I only looked at the wiki site and since wiki info needs to be taken with a grain of salt.this doesn’t prove anything but I knew I heard they were married.
            Personal life

            Haas was born to Brigitte and Peter Haas. He has two sisters, Sabine (born 24 April 1975) and Karin (born 16 June 1979).

            Haas is married to actress Sara Foster. She is the daughter of songwriter David Foster. On 27 January 2010, Haas became a United States citizen.[16]

            On 5 July 2010, Haas announced on his website that he would become a father for the first time. And on 15 November 2010, Haas announced on his website that his wife Sara had given birth to a baby girl, Valentina. He says he wants to remain playing long enough for his daughter to watch him play.[17]

            • kit9 says:

              I def. trust Gimelstob(the commentator and Tommy friend)more than Wiki..and he’s been describing Sarah as Tommy’s fiance for weeks and again to Tommy directly today. Weird Yo would say SIL. Maybe it just feels like he is since he’s been with Sarah so long and they plan to wed. OMG! There’s another Housewives connection! Justin Gimelstob, ex tennis pro(and major goofball) was the ringer that Jill Z. tried to drop on Ramona in their tennis match! Remember? Justin had to back out because of injury.

    This is for Jill-you are right it is funny how people have wildly different likes and dislikes. I totally know how the not Teresa lovers feel now! How you can defend anything. Although I think I am honest in my thoughts on her. Plus I don’t even get into it much with the legal stuff-since that’s the courts job. No use arguing over something you have no control over. It only matters what the state of nj thinks!

    I always say I’m done done done with jersey but yet I go back….I’ve even started to wonder about Teresa and some of the stuff that’s come out. Could she be part of it? I guess we shall see….

    But I totally won’t miss Brandi. Not even a little. Oh a a triple eeeewww on the tampon thing. That’s just ass nasty! I’m okay if people aren’t ashamed if nudity but for gods sake for the what 5 days a month you need a demons hygiene product-out on some freaking underpants. Seriously.

    Sorry Mel, here’s your brain bleach. Even a hot woman loses some appeal when there’s a string hanging from her kitty cat.

    • Exit4 says:

      Its weird with Teresa b/c I don’t even like her that much but I think its that damn Melissa that has me taking Teresa’s side. I liked it so much better when Melissa wasn’t on and Teresa was just some ditsy chick with money to spend. Now its all teams and sides and stupidity!! I really don’t love any of them but I will be watching. Same with OC-I do not like one person on that show and it is the fakest HW franchise out but I will watch anyway because I love to hate Tamra!!!!

        Exit, you are so right “not cute at all.” I do have a soft spot for Brandi, but that behavior makes me wonder why do I like her so much?? It’s not like she’s in her 20’s with that uncontrolled truth cannon mouth, and her drinking too much at her own book signing. Ok, so she hadn’t eaten…well, EAT SOMETHING!!! Lainey to Brandi: “There’s food everywhere you turn in Austin, TX. You’re a grown-up now Brandi, you have to learn when to eat (all by yourself), when you’ve had enough to drink (all by yourself), when it’s time to rest (all by yourself). That’s what grownups do, Brandi!!! Time to grow up, pretty lady.”

  54. Orson says:

    Okay, here comes another one of my Meta-Comments. Maybe I should copyright that term?

    1. Taylor’s first response to being accused of something is to lie about it. Afterwards, she rethinks it (or finds out there’s too much evidence/people willing to tell the truth for her to deny) and admits to the truth. The recent Taylor/Yolo thing is NOT the first time it happened. Maybe it was with Brandi first?

    B. Marisa and Camille both started off the season as Friends of Housewives, right? At best, don’t FOHWs and husbands get maybe 2 minutes on the second episode of the reunions?

    iii. Someone who has been divorced might not know about making a marriage work, but they might very well recognize signs of when marriages are headed South.

    4th. Maybe they had Dana on so by comparison Taylor would look good? Where did they tape that anyway? It looked like a restaurant where there were absolutely NO customers or staff. But are there any public buildings in CA where one is allowed to smoke?

    5. Kim, if those pills that look like your water pills make you go BLC*, why haven’t you thrown them out?

    F. “Hall Pass”?? What is that? I guess I’m just not sophisticated enough to understand how infidelity can strengthen a marriage. And we all know how well “A Break” works from Rachel and Ross, don’t we?

      LOL BLC!!! The whole unmarried people giving marital advice thing, turned into a sore subject…but in my personal life it’s usually my divorced family members (many with multiple divorces under their belt) offering unsolicited advice. No one in that group has ever asked me for advice, either. Not that I have any to give. But, maybe they think my marriage is going south, huh? I never thought of that before! LOL!! I have watched all of their marriages break up and my hubs and I have learned from what happened to them/what they did. So, yes, I have learned from my divorced siblings…what NOT to do. Don’t cheat. Don’t put your spouse down in thought, word, or deed. Don’t withhold sex. Don’t spend what you don’t have. Don’t ignore your spouse in lieu of outside activities no matter how noble they may be (charities, volunteering, etc.), don’t start on heroin, don’t take cocaine, don’t smoke crack, don’t drink too much, etc.
