Danielle Staub Returning to RHONJ / Real Housewives of Vancouver / Revenge Recaps

Danielle Staub Filming Real Housewives of New Jersey

Uh Oh.  Looks like the “peace” between the housewives wasn’t enough of a storyline for the producers, because they’re bringing back Danielle Staub.  Danielle left the show enemies with all the other ladies, but that’s an inconvenient truth so now she’s coming back as enemies with Caroline and Jacqueline, but somehow is okay with Teresa. “Is bitch better?” table flipping Teresa.  At the end of season three during the reunion, Teresa threw Andy Cohen across his chair like a rag doll screaming “don’t bring up my family,” when he tried to calm her down.  She was lunging at Danielle after Danielle mentioned that Teresa didn’t go to the hospital to see her nephew Joey after he was born .  We all  now know Melissa was feeding Danielle inside Giudice family gossip/drama and Teresa was shocked to have it thrown into her face.  She did go to the hospital, by the way, but Joe didn’t go.  You’d think Melissa would have been glad Joe didn’t go.

Anyway – a few years later and needing a few more dollars to pay the bills, Danielle finally got lured back into the New Jersey cage fight, at least according to this blog.   Apparently they are still  filming NJ through April, plenty of time to stir up drama for the Manzos.

Brandi Glanville drunk at her own book signing.

Fans who showed up for Brandi Glanville’s book signing got a little more than they asked for.  While she showed up sober, with no food in sight and the signing held at a bar, by the end of the night she was drunk.  Fans reported her slurring her words and cussing up a storm.  I suppose it would take a lot to shock a fan of Brandi’s.  She came clean about the incident the next evening on Watch What Happens Live.  “I actually didn’t come to my book signing drunk, I left there drunk.  We didn’t eat all day. We had two book signings. By the end of the day, it was a sh*t show.”

The Real Housewives of Vancouver Episode 5 by NoMoreDrama

(almost a week behind – but …)

Warning – this episode is like one long string of people talking about Mary Zilba.  There is something about Mary that gets on their nerves.  I get Jody and I sorta get Amanda since she’s friends with Mia (Jody’s daughter), but it really bugs me when Ronnie – who was once best friends with Mary – joins in.   I guess it bugs Mary too because she’s blocked Ronnie on twitter.  And with that – you can read a recap of what I felt was a really annoying episode.

Last we left the ladies they were all at Amanda’s birthday party.  Ronnie asks what happened before she got there.  Mary says she doesn’t want to go there.  Jody says she DOES want to go there.  They bicker back and forth and Jody says Mary has no manners because she’s talking with her mouth full.  Mary says that’s because she doesn’t have any manners.  Do any of you have bickering children – because this is how they are acting.  Please tell me they are not being paid for this.  Mary says that she doesn’t want to ruin Amanda’s birthday party and they all say cheers to Amanda.

bh1Mary is desperate to leave and whispers to Robin that she’s going to go.  She gets a call and tells everyone that her friend’s son’s foot has been run over by a car and he’s in St. Pauls (the hospital).   She says she wants to leave to support her friend.  Ioulia knows the friend and immediately calls her.  Right away she realizes that there isn’t an actual emergency and she tries to cover for Mary but her face gives her away.  Ioulia whispers it to Robin, who then says “your friend’s son did not get run over by a car” in a low voice to Mary.  Ioulia is desperately trying to shush her.  Mary in her voice over claims she mis-heard her friend.

Then Jody brings it up again.  Ioulia quickly says it was a misunderstanding, but now everyone knows Mary was lying.   Amanda voices over that she doesn’t really care if Mary wants to go.  Mary then says that she’s got to go.   This time her excuse is that there is something going on at her house with her kids.  She claims there are 10 kids at her house.  (Why doesn’t she just leave?)  Then she says bye and says there are 20 kids at her place.  Jody uses the opportunity to slam Mary for lying.  Robin stands up for her.   Ronnie says that she never owns anything.  Amanda uses the opportunity to tell Ronnie that Mary had said that Ronnie was the reasons she didn’t get along with Jody.   Uh oh.  Ronnie is now getting mad at Mary and because of that she’s decided Mary is a liar.  Ronnie is my least favorite housewife of ALL franchises by the way – just so we’re all clear on that.   Ronnie goes to the bathroom and sees Mary next door drinking at the bar.   Oops.  If she is going to lie, she needs to learn how to lie better.  Of course Ronnie runs back and tells everyone else because they have nothing better to do than talk about Mary.

bh2The next day Robin drops by to visit Mary.  She tells Mary that after she left, everyone starting talking about her.  And then she explains that Mary did it to herself.   Mary claims she didn’t make things up.  She left the dinner, saw some friends next door, got distracted, talked to her kids and realized she didn’t need to go home.  She also admitted (in her talking head) that she needed a drink to take the edge off her stress.  Robin just wants her to admit that the phone calls were an excuse – that she told a white lie. Robin says what we’re all thinking – what’s the big deal – she and Amanda aren’t friends?  Mary tries to deflect by asking who ratted her out.  Robin tells her about Ronnie seeing her next door and Mary immediately tries to blame Ronnie.  Bless her heart, Robin tells her to knock it off and own her own behavior and admit that she just wanted to leave.  The scene ends with Mary saying “I don’t know.”  I’m 1000% in agreement with Robin.  Covering up a white lie becomes a big lie.  If she’d just admit that she lied to get away from the ladies because she couldn’t take it anymore, it would be over.  Well not with Jody and Ronnie I suppose.  They are obsessed with proving that Mary is a liar now.

bh3Next we have Robin with Cole, the young singer, and his dad.  We learn that Cole has been on Ellen (Robin googled him).  Robin is star struck.  They have one rehearsal.  Cole has a lot of experience singing the National Anthem at the Thunderbird show, but Robin has other ideas on how to do the song.  Robin makes them do it over and over and over and over and over.  Poor Cole – he could do this in his sleep, but he’s a great sport.  And he knows he’s going to be on TV.

Jody.  Every time she talks about Mary it’s with a sneer.  And all she does is talk about Mary.  I’m beginning to feel that she’s obsessed with Mary.  She’s in a limo with Amanda and what do you know, she starts talking about Mary.  She’s like a broken record and it makes her look petty.  Of course Amanda agrees with her and they both say they couldn’t lie as much as Mary because they’d forget their lies.  Newsflash – Mary is a terrible liar.  Someone needs to take notes for her.  Is there a redhead with some time on her hands?

bh4They are on their way to Ioulia’s dinner party.  Ioulia says that tonight will be a civilized dinner with no fighting.  She writes out a sign.  Get your mind out of the gutter – she has cats.  Jody and Amanda are there first and Ioulia is starving and says she wants to start eating.  Jody laughs and tells her she has to wait.  Jody in the talking head interview says that Ioulia is like a “midget at a buffet table” and wants to eat before anyone is there.  I’m not sure if I’m more disturbed by the use of midget or the way she pronounced buffet – like boofet .

bh5Ioulia says that she invited Mary, but Mary is doing a video shoot and isn’t coming.  Jody says that Mary doesn’t want to be judged on her lie, and she’s just made up an excuse to not come to the party.  Cut to Mary shooting a video for her single.  It’s a full production and this sure doesn’t look like an excuse to me.  Suck it Jody.

Back to Ioulia’s party and Ronnie and Robin are arriving.  Ioulia is happy because she can finally eat.  She pushes everyone out of the way and pigs out.  Kidding – but she is hungry.  The conversation gets around to Ioulia’s step kids.  It turns out there is a “little one” who is in private school.  Amanda points out that it’s summer.  Ioulia says maybe she’s in Australia with her dad, but she has no idea.  I’m guessing there is a mom that has custody and this isn’t a big deal, but of course they make it seem like Ioulia has lost her step-daughter.  Ioulia doesn’t give a crap and says in her talking head that she’s the step mom and doesn’t need to know where the kids are all the time.

bh7It’s an art party, so Ioulia brings out the surprise.  It’s a guy in tidy-whities with two ladies.  The guy “Dave” is a model, and the ladies are art instructors. They housewives draw the model – but he keeps on his Calvin Klein’s.  Spoke too soon.  Out he comes with nothing on but a sock.  They all have a fun time with their art class.  Then Jody and Ronnie voice over that they all had much more fun without Mary there.  I find the show much more enjoyable then THEY aren’t talking about Mary.

Jody and Mia chit chat at Jody’s.  Jody tells Mia that she’s going to be on Top Chef Canada and Mia gets to be in the audience.

Finally it’s time for Mary and Robin to sing their National Anthems at Thunderbird Grand Prix.  They both have friends.  Mary is nervous and Robin feels ill.   The other girls dress up and head off to watch them.  They are all wearing heels. You probably don’t believe this, but Ronnie, Jody, and Amanda all start bitching about Mary.  Why do they spend so much energy on Mary?  Ioulia tries to defend her.

They arrive and can barely walk in their high heels.  They sit down and start griping because their table has a little sign that says Reserved for Mary Zilba (instead of Robin).  At this point I have to wonder how petty they can get.  Mary introduces them to her friend Michia (who is the one from the phone call).  Ronnie is licking her chops to expose Mary as a liar.  After saying hi, Mary, Robin and Cole go off to sing.  Mary sings and does well (of course – she’s a professional).  Now it’s Robin’s turn.  She’s really nervous and starts to over think her duet with Cole.  She does fine.  Of course everyone LOVES Robin’s voice and no one says a word to Mary.  Mary looks lost.  They are such mean girls and I want to smack them.

bh8As they are eating, Amanda asks Michia about the phone call.  Michia says she told Mary that her son’s foot was so swollen it looked like it was run over by a bus.  Of course everyone thinks she’s covering for Mary.   Ronnie claps after Michia tells her story and says very well rehearsed.  She’s such a beeyoch.  Why not let it go?

Jody pulls Ronnie aside to ask her to go to Toronto for the Top Chef filming.  Jody asks Ronnie to invite Robin.  She voices over that she’s not going to invite Mary.  Robin is excited to go.  They are all sitting in a row and Mary talks about having lunch next week, and Robin says, “in Toronto?” not realizing that Mary has been left out by the mean girls.  This is just after a voice over where Mary says that she’s glad she’d become friends with Robin because she needs a friend.  Robin looks crestfallen that she spilled the beans, and surprisingly, Amanda tells Mary that she should just come.  No she shouldn’t.  She doesn’t need to give Jody the satisfaction.

From the previews it looks like she and Ioulia do fly to Toronto and crash the party.  Why? Is it in their contract?  This show is actually making me start to feel sick to my stomach when I watch it.  It’s a lot like the Jill, LuAnn and Kelly ganging up on Alex.  I just want Mary to have a Ramona to stick up for her.

From the looks of Ronnie’s twitter feed, the episode that aired (in Canada) last night had her trying to explain why she was even there.  And she also mentioned that Mary has blocked her on twitter, so I suppose their relationship is completely and utterly over.

Revenge by SugarMagnolia

“In it’s purest form, an act of retribution provides symmetry; the rendering of payment for crimes against the innocent. But the danger of retaliation lies in furthering the cycle of violence. But still it is a risk that must be met. And the greater offense is to allow the guilty to go unpunished.”

Emily is back at the cottage. Nolan and Aiden are there to catch her fall, but she will not leap. She said goodbye to Fauxmanda in the deep waters of the Atlantic. She has now lost 2 dear people and her revenge is more important than ever. It has been renewed and she is out for blood. She grabs her gun, splashes water on her face and tells Nolan to refrain from telling her to ease up or to stop, not when she is covered in the blood of one of the few people she has ever loved. She heads upstairs to compose herself and weep; only Emily can do both at once. As she is changing clothes, she pulls Faux’s necklaces out of her pocket. Under the picture of Amanda and Jack is a picture of the two girls circa juvie. She sobs once again, and maybe for the last time.

Grayson Manor-the Queen and Conrad are still ensconced in the Helen fiasco, which has become more complicated by Mr. Trask. He found Helen’s scarf and cell phone at the Porters, and of course Fauxmanda is allegedly to blame. However, she is missing. Charlotte is playing nanny to little Carl, sends him to the Manor to allow, of all people, Victoria to watch him while she joins Declan at the hospital to check on Jack. Daniel is done with this murder business and is ready to shut down the Iniaitive. Victoria is shocked to find that their is another player in this game–the felon Ryan. Back at the cottage, Nolan and Aiden are discussing the revegenda and Nolan does a brief summary of all those in peril. As usual, he gets the best line of the episode, “Why do I think this isn’t what Takeda had in mind when he handed you your revenge degrees?” Nolan is worried they are going to lose Emily to her revenge, but Aiden assures him that it’s the only thing she has left to hang onto. Emily descends the stairs, composed, and ready to continue her Revenge. She and Nolan go to check on Jack at the hospital. Charlotte goes to the Manor to check on Carl, he’s with the Queen after all, Declan needs coffee. And Emily is going to make the Grayson pay….Watch out Conrad and Victoria….

Conrad and the Queen meet Mr. Trask at some sort of Hampton’s amphitheater. The Queen is concerned about security. Trask says that the last time an operative met with them, Helen, she went missing. The couple Grayson try to assure him they had nothing to do with it. (We all know Victoria killed her, but he doesn’t). Amanda is still being blamed, but she is missing. Conrad tries to implicate Nate Ryan, mentions the laptop. Vicki, still, is pissed about her golden boy Daniel being lured into the Iniative. Trask leaves with no resolution and the royal couple of the Hamptons is left to anticipate the next move.

Trask calls Daniel at Grayson Global. He is taking over for Helen, since she has moved onto “greener pastures”. They have great faith in Daniel, he says, and will continue their investment in GG. Daniel appreciates that. Trask wants assurance that the trades in his inbox will still happen. Daniels confirms. He heads to the booze. Enter Aiden, who still wants a seat on the board of directors. Daniel is handling “the clock”. The one with the camera. He throws out the Prosser connection, and how he got Daniel that bid.

The Stowaway

Emily is searching for the laptop, but gets distracted by Faux’s wedding dress. Before she has a chance to get emotional, she is approached by Trask who flashes a badge that I cannot discern. Clearly, a fake. She says she is just picking up clothes for Jack. What is he looking for? Faux is still missing, and she must forgive him, he is paid to be suspicious. He gets a call, and shares that Faux’s body has been found, and Charlotte must identify the body.

Grayson Manor

Honey Boo Boo is in Conrads office, and asks Conrad directly if he killed Amanda Clarke. She feels that he used his Gubernatorial announcement for an alibi. He blames the felon Ryan, and reminds her that, once again, her hands are dirty since she brokered the deal with him in the first place. He asks her to submit her resignation or stay on board….she stays, although storms out of his office.

Hospital

Padma….****Still do not trust her!!*** She pays Nolan a visit, and has been contacted by Trask. They need to match the fingerprint. Nolan will interface and try and match it. He got Helen’s number and did his hacking magic. He found the last 2 places of contact were at Grayson Manor, then the Stowaway. He figured out the Grayson’s killed her. Still no luck finding the laptop. Emily is at the ME. The Queen is there, waiting for Charlotte to ID the body. They have a heavily veiled conversation until Char comes out in tears.

Nolcorp

Nolan is pissed to see Daniel in his office. Threats about R & D, and Carrion. Still no sign of the laptop, it hasn’t been turned on so Nolan cannot track it. He informs Emily that he has to produce the program in order to save Padma’s Father. But Daniel wants him to destroy it. **don’t do it Nolan** Emily and Aiden…she’s off track, and she knows it. Jack is coming to. She gets a call from Declan and goes to the hospital. She has the bad luck to inform Jack that Faux is gone. Conrad enters, and Jack wants to speak ot him.

Grayson Manor

Char is keeping watch over little Carl and searching for Faux’s foster family. Uh-oh…..

Hospital

Conrad insists on paying Jack’s hospital bill. He has regrets about allowing the felon Ryan to use him. Jack doesn’t get it and feels that Faux paid the price of his fathers sins. He accepts Conrads gesture and thanks him. He wants out of the hospital so that he can finish what Faux/Emily started. He knows now that there is a plan of revenge, however he thinks it his dead wife who started it. He is so close, yet so far….

Manhatten

Daniel and the Queen are meeting for a drink. Vick has a plan for Daniel’s speculation about Aiden. Give him Helen’s accounts. If he doesn’t take them, then he can’t be trusted because his footprints will be all over them. He gives in to Mama as usual.

Stowaway

Emily has arranged for home care for Jack. No one can find the laptop. He asks Emily to give the eulogy. He’s not sure he ever knew her, but Emily assures him that her earnest love is all around him. Jack wants to be alone, Emily leaves. He spies a mason jar of sea glass, from their childhood, and smashes it to pieces. What does he find? A key to a locker….

Grayson Manor

Char is still watching little Carl. Interaction on her computer with an unknown person. Em’s runs into Daniel and they have a brief moment of understanding and kindness after he dumped her over the Iniative.

Meanwhile, Jack has found the laptop, but can’t access it without Nolans help. He doesn’t know the infinity password. Conrad is having a press conference, and Jack goes to shake his hand while Emily watches with incredualty.

The Stowaway

Jack found the laptop, can’t access it, but also found a letter. He lets Emily help him with his tie. But he pulls out a letter that links her and Faux to juvie. He doesn’t believe anything she has to say because he knows she’s been lying to him. He asks her to go. Meanwhile, at Nolcorp, Nolan has completed the Carrion program. He gives it to Padma to save her Father. ****don’t do it Nolan!!!!****

Fauxmanda’s funeral (Aiden is breaking into the Stowaway to recover the laptop)

Emily’s eulogy:

“Death is a thief. It takes and keeps all that a person is. That the person was. And when death takes from us someone as extraordinary as Amanda, it takes not just her past, but who she was to us every day. Amanda was special, but she never had it easy. A childhood torn from her, a rough adolescence, and a damning identity that was thrust upon her which she wore with dignity. Until she made herself a new name, Amanda Porter. A name that was her own. Free from the binds of history. Looking forward with a man who loved her for all of her strengths, and all of her weaknesses. Amanda, all of us here today have embraced you, and we love you. We will protect the husband and the child you leave behind. The sister you were just getting to know. And we will greet every new day as a gift, approaching it with the same bravery and determination with which you lived your entire life.”

Jack gives Emily a scathing look, and goes to shake Conrads hand. Nolan talks her out of telling him the whole truth, for now. The Queen lays a Cala Lilly on David Clarkes grave, while Emily watches in disgust. The Queen always has something to say–she compliments Emily on her eulogy and proselytizes on the tragedy of both Faux and her Father.

Jack comes home and realizes that the laptop is gone. Grayson, he says. Aiden brings it to Emily on the dock and she throws it into the ocean. Daniel gives his secretary the Iniative clock.

Later, under the rain, Emily is at Faux’s grave, crying. She is approached by a hidden stranger, asking her if she knew her well. Yes, she says. Who are you? “I’m her brother….”

    Happy Birthday Vilzvet! 😀

  2. BB says:

    I found this while cruising the news sites this morning. It’s for the very very few of us who are over 50. I know I need all the help I can get. Lol.
    http://www.today.com/style/going-glam-ma-makeup-tutorial-senior-citizens-goes-viral-1C8823620

    • L.A. Chica says:

      Cool! Thanks! I’m still way too young to be considered a senior* and I don’t have any wrinkles yet, but makeup on women over 50 (and even over 40) is definitely a different game than makeup on someone in their 20s or 30s. I wish whoever does makeup for the Real Housewives would take note of that.

      *Aren’t “seniors” at least 65 years old? If I had a vote mine would be to make the designation not apply until at least age 70. Most people I know who are in their 60s are still pretty young.

      • BB says:

        I’m with you. I consider my mom, who will turn 80 this year, a senior. Myself, no way. I’m only going to be 58 this year. Still a young thing! 😀

        • I will jump on this wagon! I will be 56 in July and I definitely don’t feel like a senior. Well, except for this pesky white/silver hair growing in (which I love)! Even still….”they” say I am a “rockin’ granny”! 😀

          • LaineyLainey says:

            I’ve been feeling like a senior for about a decade. So I’m ok with it.

            • HuskerHuny says:

              I’m in my mid-50s and considered a senior, but don’t act like one. Just ask my 28 year old twin daughters who I still manage to embarrass while singing and dancing in the car at stoplights and flirting with male waiters (though I consider it being nice, not flirting). I do like the senior discount at various establishments though – 10 percent off adds up!

        • I Need A Life! says:

          Wow, BB! Same here. Mom’s birthday is later this year. Grateful that she’s doing fine with few issues like her shoulder, etc.

          • I Need A Life! says:

            I was thinking I was getting fairly old, until I saw Lisa V and Ramona. Corny, I know, but they inspired me to lose some weight, and dress it up.

        • catmom1 says:

          Thanks so much for posting BB. I’m another one in my 50’s.

    • pat says:

      This is awesome, BB. I sent it to my mum. 🙂

  3. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. I’m late. 😉 It’s hump day & the sun is shinning bright. Hope your getting good weather today.

    Danielle must be desperate to go back into the vipers den. Umm, umm, umm. Have a great day.

    • L.A. Chica says:

      We are socked in with fog here, but it should burn off by late morning.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Momma needs a new pair of shoes. Time for Danielle to get paid, I guess. Well, good for her – – bad for Caroline and Jaq.

      • Powell says:

        Ya’ll know I don’t do NJ anylonger but when she debuts I have to see that just to see Caroline & Jacs faces. That should be priceless. And I’m no Danielle fan.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          I love that, Powell, I don’t blame you. Danielle adds another facet to the relationships. The Meliss v. Tre thing is old. Now maybe some of the focus will be on Danielle vs. whomever.

          • $25,000 says:

            It will change up the dynamic for sure. I hope in a good way. If she is coming on board to tell everyone about how Melissa worked behind the scenes to trash Teresa I’ll be glad to have the truth out there. I will be very disappointed if this is used to drag out the Melissa vs. Teresa feud rather than put an end to it. (FYI — I am not saying I am glad that this could show Melissa to be the bad guy. My point is that I will be glad to have the truth out there whatever the truth may be because I am sick of the Melissa vs. Teresa war too.)

    • Lulu says:

      Hi Powell when you say late what exactly do you mean…………… 🙂

      I’m actually looking forward to Danielle’s return. Finally someone to put fake can’t sing Melissa back in her place! I kinda wish that Caroline wouldn’t return not because I dislike her. I’ve always like her (ok now duck!!) but not her children. IMO their storylines are BORING!!! Wacko Jacko is no surprise why wouldn’t they want to bring that trainwreck back. Though for the sake of her son would have been better is she didn’t. Autistic children are very sensitive in certain situations. I can only imagine that being in the spot light would put added stress on him. Very sad for him that his mother is more concerned with being on the “hw’s and the drama that follows” versus taking care of him.

      • vilzvet says:

        I’m not sure if I can handle listening to Danielle again. Wonder if we will see her girls.

      • Powell says:

        Hi Lulu. I hope you and Mr. Lulu & the babe & babe to be are doing well. Not much longer now. 🙂 You know me. I love to give everyone an early howdy. 🙂

  4. Powell says:

    Kenya, Kenya, Kenya. She wants us to remember that she’s a former Miss USA, she’s been in many, many films. She’s a production company owner & produer. W/all she keeps cramming down our throats she’s doing a stupid video? She’s desperate for attention.

  5. TexasTart says:

  6. Rebecca says:

    Another stupid contrived story line for RHONJ. Ick. We saw on twitter from Danielle that she and Teresa put the past behind them. Who is producing these days – a bunch of teenage mean girls?

  7. HuskerHuny says:

    Off topic, but is anyone else out there obsessed with Bar Rescue with John Taffner? This guy really knows his stuff. He huffs and puffs at those who dare to disagree with him, but he gets it right everytime.

    For those of you who don’t know this show, John goes into bar establishments who are on their last dollar. He evaluates the staff, kitchen and management and comes up with solutions on how to turn their business around.

    My favorite episode so far was the pirate bar. He changed the format from pirates to the business-friendly crowd and it totally took off. But the owners didn’t like making money I guess because they went back to their pirate stuff and probably no business.

    I have to say this is one of my favorite reality shows because there’s nothing fake or put-on about it and it’s entertaining as well. So refreshing compared to most of the stuff that Bravo puts out. This show is on Spike TV, Sunday nights, 9 p.m. central time. It’s usually in reruns on Sunday afternoons as well. Check it out if you haven’t yet!

    • L.A. Chica says:

      This sounds similar to shows like Restaurant Stakeout and Hotel Impossible. About the pirate themed bar, it’s amazing how thick headed and foolish people can be in business. Bless their hearts.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      Sounds a little like Tabatha Takes Over

    • lizzle says:

      I will check it out. I love the shows where someone helps a business get back on their feet. And even though I don’t frequent them as much anymore now that I have a family… I love a good bar. I can definitely see a bar losing money from over pouring, staff drinking and giving away too many drinks. As well as.. having a pirate theme with a business friendly clientel. What were they thinking turning it back into a pirate theme? If they love pirates, then they need to go to some touristy beach town and open a pirate bar.

    • Orson says:

      Yes, I enjoy this show too. It’s a lot like Tabatha Takes Over, but much more manly.

    • HAPPY HUMP DAY….
      HAPPY BIRTHDAY VILZVET…. MANY MANY MORE TO COME…

      Huskerhuny…. I LOVE BAR RESCUE..been watching it faithfully…John lives in PBC and has been in the biz for over 30 plus years…. and yes, I agree about the PEE RAT BAR..omg…that and the roach hotel one in Austin TX,,, NOW THAT WAS DISGUSTING !!! I would love for him to come to some of the places here in town…they are also just as disgusting… the one place that was cool to go to has now been taken over by the wanna be thugs that just turned 21…. lots of fights and cop calls…. what a shame that the owner allows this..oh well…cheaper to stay at home anyways….

      diva

      • Hey Diva….good for you for showing those youngsters how its done! I hope you get a chance for some rest tho. And good about Mr. Ford’s surgery, I sincerely hope this relieves his pain and mobility.

        Sending you lots of good vibes and Love & Light! 🙂

        • HuskerHuny says:

          Happy anniversary DD2! My husband and I will celebrate our 32nd on September 12. Sounds like your job is working out. I’ll be thinking of your husband and his upcoming surgery. I went through many medical issues with my husband last year (in fact, it began one year ago yesterday). But today he is healthy and around 35 pounds lighter! Not the best way to take off weight, but he’s kept it off and guess what? I found it! Best wishes to you always!

      • Powell says:

        Miss Diva you sound pooped. I’m glad Mr. Ford can go ahead w/surgery. I’m sure you both just want it over. Good luck to him & you. I’ll remember 21st, 21st. 🙂

        You’ve been working your patutee off. You are doing fantastic & sounds like you’re having fun. That’s great.

      • vilzvet says:

        Thanks diva, and good going with the job!! I missed Brandi but her shtick can wear thin. She could have also taken out every F word in her book and they wouldn’t have been missed lol.

    • shamrockblonde says:

      love this show!!! the Pirate Bar was a favorite of mine as well – he takes no nonsense from anyone – lays it out, tells them what stinks and how to fix it and his success backs him up – love watching that show on the weekends in re-runs and marathons!

  8. AZGirl says:

    Happy Birthday Vilzvet

  9. lizzle says:

    Regarding Ronnie from RHOV… it’s PTSD not PSTD… and in all seriousness… is she joking or does she claim to have it? I’m with you, NMD, I think she is the worst housewife in all the franchises. I am not caught up on this season’s episodes yet, but I thought her sobriety would make her a better person. She is still an egomaniac that has some strange vendetta against her good friend, Mary. I wonder if Ronnie likes to side with the popular, mean girls in order to fit in. I really can’t believe she threw away a real friendship over a fake one with Jody, who has an unnatural obsession with Mary. I am going to find the episode right now and watch. This Mary bashing is getting very old… and Mary is one tough cookie… unlike Ronnie who is whining on twitter about production making her go to Toronto.. Mary, the target, went and isn’t even bitching about it. Mary is the target, not Ronnie… I seriously think Ronnie is a narcissist

    • jezzibel says:

      Mary should have just told the birthday girl
      “Thank you for inviting me, but I feel that my presence here is the source of conflict, and I hate to ruin your special day, so I am going to head out, thank you again for inviting me.” Mary can’t lie to save her life.

  10. Exit4 says:

    On one hand, I’m sort of intrigued by Danielle coming back (assuming its true) but on the other like Rebecca said above it does seen contrived. We already know her and Melissa were emailing/facebooking. Unless she’s going to show up with the goods and put the while thing to rest, I don’t want to see her. Otherwise it’s just another she said/she said argument. Lord knows if a paper trail exsists, Danielle has it saved in a file like a female J. Edgar.

    I know Melissa said the new producers do things differently-so I wonder if they are laying everything on the table and trying to come to a resolution. If it does start in may, we will probably start seeing previews soon (OC starts in April, so usually the run up begins then). I hope they make changes to NJ after this season….it’s time for a NY style shake up.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I feel the same!! I want to say ” who cares about Danielle?” But I want to see her cause some trouble!!!

  11. catmom1 says:

    Lisa and Kyle’s blogs are up.

    • pat says:

      Just read ’em. Kyle makes a lame attempt to explain her situation with Lisa and Lisa doesn’t mention it. That ship has sailed, for her. I can’t wait to see her vow renewal with Ken. As she said, Kevin Lee delivers a “visual feast” so I’m sure it will be gorgeous!

    • BB says:

      What is it with Kyle? Now all of a sudden something happened between Kyle and Lisa around reunion time, but she’s not going to tell her side of it, she’s just going to mention it and then leave it at that? Why even bring it up then? Kind of like Adrienne saying Brandi has thrown ALL of the women under the bus, but doesn’t explain that remark to Yolanda. I’m glad Lisa has pretty much moved on from the Richards sisters.

      • pat says:

        LAME, Kyle.

      • WindyCityWondering says:

        Well at least we can be thankful that Kyle didn’t share her side of the story!

      • lizzle says:

        The throwing under the bus comment by Adrienne is very ironic. Adrienne ended up throwing Kyle under the bus by skipping the reunion. Kyle has been saying all season that she hopes Adrienne tells the audience what Brandi said at the reunion. Well, not only did Adrienne not spill the beans… she didn’t even show up! Kyle defended her to her own detriment… so Adrienne threw her under a gigantic, double-decker bus. She has also thrown Lisa, Brandi and Taylor under the bus.

      • realhousewifeva says:

        I think Adrienne was talking about the comment Brandi made when she first met Yolanda and joked that Yolanda has slept with everyone (or something like that) and Taylor made a big ol’ fuss about telling it to all the rest of the ladies at Portia’s birthday party. At this point she didn’t realize Yolanda and Brandi were good friends.

    • nyc mama says:

      I agree with you all. Something doesn’t sit right. What about her part in trying to take down Lisa at the tea party last year and all the other times we have seen her talking about Lisa to others? What about the time she tried to make Lisa jealous with Taylor and all ther other childish games? Once again she takes no responsibilty for her own actions and feigns innocence.
      I am sure Lisa isn’t perfect but I have never seen her partake in the childish antics that we have seen with Kyle.
      I am simply tired of the Richards sisters and they lame story lines.

      • pat says:

        No, Lisa isn’t perfect, but I agree, something just doesn’t sit right. Whatever she did to ruffle Kyle’s feathers, seems like the punishment doesn’t fit the crime. We’ve also seen more than a couple of times, Lisa NOT use info she has, even when she is being shit upon. (e.g. Adrienne’s big beef with Lisa’s daugher not having her party at the Palms, when Lisa knew that Adrienne owned only the slightest percent of the Palms.) It happened again in Paris. When Kim did a switcharoo. She was complaining to Lisa about Kyle in the morning, and then in the evening, complaining about Lisa to Kyle. Did Lisa tell Kyle what Kim said about her just that morning? Nope, at least it didn’t appear so.

      • Powell says:

        nyc I know this won’t happen but it would be good if Andy showed a montage of all of Kyle’s moments when she did just what you’re tsalking about. If he did I bet she’d say it’s editing.

    • T-Rex says:

      VileKyle just cannot get it, you mean-girl, you’re secret of the Take down with HoofMaloof is out of the bag, you brought an UNINVITED GUEST to LisaVpumps HOME after being told expressly not to bring that LoserBiotchFayeKR, you get your ass apparently handed to you at the Reunion for your mean girl antics and you wonder why LisaVpump isn’t friends with you? You are completely delusional. Going to be interesting about how the rest of the show unfold before the Reunion. VileKyle you are now just a co-worker to most of the girls on the show, get over yourself! Oh, and Murray has probably lost some nice business with all of this, so KUDOS

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        T-Rex you really think that Kyle was in charge of bringing Faye to Lisa’s party? You don’t think production plays a role on who goes to these things?

        • T-Rex says:

          Yes, I think VileKyle got with production to make this happen, she was told by Lisa NOT to bring her, Lisa told LoserBiotchFayeKR she wasn’t invited, again if this had been a restaurant or a PUBLIC place, I could see brining her for drama, but this was her PRIVATE HOME. From my one source out there, VileKyle WENT to production and begged to get LoserBiotchFayeKR invited, and she wasn’t “invited” she was Mic’d up and placed in the limousine by production! At this point in filming VileKyle and LoserBiotchFayeKR were trying DESPERATELY to get LoserBiotchFayeKR a spot as a RH not just a “friend”. VileKyle knew SpaceCadetMajorKim was not going to attend, and neither one of the Witchard Sister had the decency to tell Lisa this.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            So Kyle has that much pull with production? Good for her. I always thought production decided things.

            • T-Rex says:

              Not so much PULL, from what I heard she again begged them to Mic her as she was already at VileKyle’s home, Production folks are no idiots and did what she asked they knew it would bring drama. What Production did NOT know was that LoserBiotchFayeKR had been expressly told she was NOT INVITED by LisaV herself, VileKyle and LoserBiotchFayeKR left that little tidbit out. My source said production “apologized” to LisaV after the situation happened.

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                Production apologizing for ratings? Kyle must have pull if she got them to mic up Faye and send them on their way. I would think that production knows everything!!!

              • t-rex…I wonder why MZ LISA did not throw faye out of her house that day..now that’s reality… I once had a large party at my house and one of my sisters WAS NOT INVITED.. she took it upon herself to show up THINKING I would let it slide…WRONG….. you were not invited for a reason.. my house..my rules… she left…. Lisa should have kicked her to the curb…..

                • Catseye says:

                  I completely agree about not allowing univited people into your home. Anyone that would show up without being expressly invited, is low-class and ill-mannered–and I see no reason to be cordial to someone like that.

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                  If Lisa would have kicked Faye out on her ass then we would know that she wasn’t invited. It’s Lisa’s home-she totally could have given her the boot!!!!

                  • T-Rex says:

                    Lisa has class and CLEARLY stated for the cameras to see was ‘NOT INVITED’ to her face! LisaV said that there is footage of this it is why LoserBiotchFayeKR steered clear of her the rest of the event. LisaV has class has stated that hindsight is 20-20 and if she had to do this over again would have thrown her out on her arse!

        • Rebecca says:

          Whether or not she had any pull with production, Kyle shouldn’t have lied about it. She expressly went on twitter herself to say not only was Faye invited, but that Lisa had bought Faye a gift!

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            I don’t know why it’s Kyle’s fault that Faye was at the party. Bravo hired Faye-as far as I know Faye is a co-worker to the HWs-she is not just randomly showing up on our TV b/c she feels like it. Bravo hired her so bravo tells her where she is working-it just so happened to be at Lisa’s house. If Lisa was the epitome of class like she would like us to believe she never would have brought this whole thing up.

            • nyc mama says:

              Faye was hired as a friend of the housewife not a f/t hw so she is not expected at every event. Lisa explained it all before. She told Kyle that Faye was not invited and didn’t feel compelled to inclue her since it was just a small gathering. What was left on the cutting room floor was a scene where Faye confronts Lisa and Lisa tells her that she wasn’t welcome at the tea party. Faye was the only one who didn’t bring a hostess gift since we saw everyone else, including Adrienne come in with a shopping bag/gift for Lisa. Cooincidence?
              Why did Kyle feel the need to distort the truth and what would it have benefitted Lisa to throw her out? It wouldn’t. Lisa did what she felt was correct at the time. Hindsight is 20/20.

          • WindyCityWondering says:

            Oddly enough, Lisa expressed that she did not want Faye at her house, she did not have a place set at the table for Faye and the gift that Faye took was the one meant for Kim! For Miss in Everybody’s Business Kyle Richards NOT to know these facts….calling BS on her.

            • nyc mama says:

              Another thing that makes no sense to me is Yolanda says in her blog that Kim was a mess at the airport and crying because of something that transpired between her and Kyle. Kyle knew her sister was a mess the entire trip yet at the opening we hear Kim tell her she slept for 2 days. Did Kyle not even check on her after they returned? Doesn’t seem like something a caring sister would do especially under the circumstances.

  12. Good Morning! Sunny and warm already here today….up to 90’s by end of the week! Ack…not ready for this yet!

    Thanks NMD, SugarMagnolia & BB for another great blog. I said I was going to stay out of commenting about NJ, so I won’t say what a disaster this is going to be with Danielle returning. Oh….oooops! 😛

    Great Revenge recap SugarMagnolia! I am so glad we are getting a few back to back episodes the next couple of weeks. It will be interesting to see how/if Jack jumps on the revenge wagon and if that will prompt Emily/Amanda to share any truths with him. Love this show!

    Wishing everyone a good and swift Wednesday!

    New Post, “Wednesday Humor Blog”, is up at my place. Enjoy!

      So hear you. Just saw that it’s going to be near 100 for the next two days. It’s freaking March! Oh, for those following, Crazy Train, aka Jodi Arias trial finally resumes today after 5 days off and prosecutor Martinez will get back to grilling her.

  13. TexasTart says:

  14. realhousewifeva says:

    I’m already tired of NJ and it hasn’t even aired. So much manufactured drama, while they laugh their ways to the bank.

    I rewatched BH last night because I missed some parts the first time, and maybe I’m just old fashioned or something, but how are the dresses that Kyle’s 2 teenage daughters were wearing to the store opening appropriate in any way? Her 16 year old was wearing this super tight, red number that barely covered her butt. I would never, in a million years, let my child walk out of the house in that.

    • Catseye says:

      I didn’t think they were age appropriate either.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I don’t think the kids or the grown ups dress age appropriately on any HW show. Tamra and Gretchen shop at forever21-which they haven’t been in years!! Brandi’s dress at the party looked cheap tight and way too young for a 40 year old. Adrienne never dresses in anything I like!! Oh wait-I don’t think I have ever seen Yolanda dress a mess-now that is one HW who does know what to wear-to the airport and to dinner!!!!

        • Catseye says:

          True, about Yolanda. And I think Camille, always looks impeccable also.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Camille does always dress nice!!
            rh-you are right-young girls do not need to dress in skirts that show their asses!!!

        • realhousewifeva says:

          I think there is a big difference in grown ass women dressing one way, vs. 16 year olds. Yes, all those women dress tackily/slutty/etc. but at least they are legal.

    • trudie says:

      Honey, you should see what some high school girls wear to dances. Unbelievable! My girls never dressed like that and my son’s girlfriend is always appropriately dressed. I have to wonder what some parents are thinking.

    • nyc mama says:

      Kyle doesn’t dress appropriately so why should her children? Does anyone remember the 1st white party when Kyle’s eldest wore that dress that was so short she didn’t want to come out from behind a table?
      Nothing has changed. They apparently all learned from the Paris Hilton school of fashion,

  15. Contessa says:

    I read Kyle’s blog and I think she and Kim are full of it. There is something in Yo’s blog about Kim and Kyle’s version of what happened in Paris, and now Yo knows better…I think it is what a lot of us think, Kim fell off the wagon on pills. There has never been any doubt in my mind about that. One of the first things that should get done for addicts is clean out the liquor and meds and only have the meds you need to take. Gee can I put everything I take into a giant baggie, not labeled and then dole it out for my trip to Paril. What the hell happened to labelled bottles and pill boxes that are filled once a week. Sorry I am not buying Kim/kyles BS about Paris and I am sick and tired of this depressing story with all the tears and plea’s. This is not what I tuned in to watch. Kim needs to go back to rehab as she has not mastered any of the appropriate steps for a recovering alcoholic, and Kyle needs to stop using this as her storyline. Sick of it big time.

    • pat says:

      I’m not buying it, either. Kim was *allegedly* out of it again very recently, at her neice’s birthday party in Tahoe.

      They are such snobs, too. Yo described in her blog, that Kim barely threw her a “hello” at Kyle’s store party, and the two sisters went breezing by, to go have their private (on camera) pow wow to relate what Kim says really happened with the meds.

      • $25,000 says:

        I hadn’t heard about Kim’s Tahoe mishap. I hate hearing this because I really want the best for her. I was very hopeful that her last rehab would be the last time she would have need for rehab.

    • Obsessed w RH says:

      ITA Contessa. It is BEYOND obvious to anyone who hasn’t had a lobotomy that Kim clearly fell off the wagon. It is an insult to the viewers to keep subjecting us to this ridiculous and quite frankly BAD cover up of Kim’s illness. Get off the damn show Kim, get in to rehab and cut the sh*t. Kyle, do us all a favor and get tear duct surgery so we never have to see your stupid crocodile tears anymore. You only fake cry anyway so what do you need tear ducts for? I am beyond sick of this storyline and it’s time for the producers to realize that. Also, Kyle…LOOK IN THE MIRROR…your ass/boobs/back fat did NOT belong in those dresses….Learn to dress for your body type. There are plenty of dresses that don’t resemble sausage casing that you can wear which will flatter you but neither of those dresses were it sweetie. And no, the solution is NOT another batwing caftan…..

    • Catseye says:

      I think Kim is a manic-depressive, with limited social skills. I also think she got into the habit of self-medicating and cannot seem to break it. Maybe she needs to look into something besides Western Medicine for a way to manage her condition? The rehab stints haven’t seem to cut it. If I were her, I would look into Ayurvedic or Chinese, or both.

    • T-Rex says:

      Contessa AGREED, even shannataylornotfordlyinggrifterhusbandstealerLypsMcgee questioned the whole “drugs” issue and if you the likes of that wench making observations than you know nothing “something smells” with that story SpaceCadetMajorKim was trying to give everyone. I think that SpaceCadetMajorKim is no longer drinking however as we all have pointed out that she is a “dry drunk” she is not dealing with the issues of why she is an alcoholic, so now she is “medicating” with drugs instead of alcohol. Just because those drugs are “legal” doesn’t mean she should be taking them either. If I were her family I would be marching her happy ass to her doctor’s and dumping that whole bag on his desk and to demand as to why a doctor was prescribing mood elevating drugs to a DRUNK! There is just something so Odd and Strange with the Witchard sisters, IMO

      • Contessa says:

        You are all hysterical and always make my day. I am off to the Doctor for a pre-surgery appt. I have a torn meniscus and am having surgery next Wednesday. Totally freaked out, as I hate being put under for any reason. The surgery is only 1/2 hour at the most, but I think using General Anesthesia is overkill.

  16. pat says:

    It came up in yesterday’s blog comments re Chelsea Handler trashing the Housewives franchise. Here’s what she said to Andy Cohen: “Women shouldn’t be making money off of the fact that they have fake boobs, and a fake vagina, and a fake whatever. I actually don’t support that.”

    This, from the person who admitted to sending out a sex tape of herself as an audition tape. (No, she didn’t just get her show by sleeping with one head honcho at E!):

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2010/04/29/chelsea-handler-sex-tape_n_556592.html

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      She feels the same way we all do-we talk about how fake the HWs are and say how they are laughing all the way to the bank!! I certainly not mad at her for telling Andy that the shows are stupid…they are stupid!!!

  17. I Need A Life! says:

    Thanks for your Revenge blog, Sugar. Such a good show. You were spot on! And speaking of NOT feeling old, let’s give the Queen of Grayson Manor a standing ovation for looking fabulous in your ’50s.

  18. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    I wish Kyle would have said in her blog what went down with her and Lisa. I don’t think Lisa is above causing some trouble so I would love to know what happened. On the other hand I’m kind of glad Kyle didnt say it b/c she would get slammed for it no matter what. I’m surprised she even put up a blog b/c her twitter feed is full of some of the grossest comments I have ever read!!

    • realhousewifeva says:

      Maybe they address it at the reunion.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I hope so….this reunion is already giving me a headache!! I hope Kim remain comatose through out the whole thing. When she speaks I need to change the channel!!!!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      If something really did happen, she should spill. If nothing really happened she should remain silent. Gotta hand it to Kyle…It’s a great way to get attention…bait and switch. Not very original but it’s effective. It’s got people talking about her.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I’m going to say that I think something did happen. I don’t think Kyle would put it out there for Lisa to deny. I don’t find Kyle to be a liar but I’m probably the only one!!!

        • lizzle says:

          I don’t think she is a liar, but I do think she is dishonest. Dishonesty is playing with the truth just enough to create a certain perception. And she did that with Faye and the mysterious dinner invite. She said that Faye was invited and that she would never bring an uninvited guest. The audience assumed that Lisa invited her, because she left out the production part. Lisa explained the whole thing in detail on her blog. Kyle could have been honest and explain it as well to clear the air… but she has never come clean about it. I think Kyle knows better than to bring up this “thing” that Lisa did to her, because it will probably reek of dishonesty. And she can’t afford to get called out again. The last two sentences are pure speculation based on Kyles previous actions. I admit that I could be totally wrong about it.

          • T-Rex says:

            Well we WILL be hearing about this “supposed” dis from LisaV to VileKyle coming up either on the show or at the Reunion, VileKyle is very sneaky and likes to throw out these little tidbits forshadowing things to come. I think it’s nauseating reading her blogs when she knows fully well that LisaV wishes her well, but they are NOT friends any longer. LisaV has said this numerous times that they are not friends but are “friendly”.

          • pat says:

            Lizzle, I think that nails it re Kyle. She doesn’t straight-up lie, but through omission and ambiguity, she distorts the truth.

        • Rebecca says:

          I’m calling shananigans on this. I think Kyle is mad at Lisa for not letting Mauricio represent them in buying their new house or something extremely petty like this.

  19. LaineyLainey says:

    I like this from Lisa’s blog re: Dana – “When a money box is empty and you shake it,it makes a lot of noise, when it is full. . .not so much! I rest my case.” burn!

  20. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    I really wish Lisa wasn’t doing the vow renewal thing…it’s so silly to stage an event like that for a dumb reality show. I wish she would have stuck to the house warming and renewed her vow privately

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I’m excited about the vowel renewal. a year from now, hubs and I will be celebrating our 30th anniversary. Maybe we’ll do a vow renewal, too!! Ours wouldn’t be shi, shi, shi shi, – but at a bar, downtown. LOL!!

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Can you have a video live stream for us here?? That would be fun-we can write comments about the party and request songs to be played!!!

        • Laineylainey says:

          Rethinking it now. I’m kinda superstitious – someone said vow renewals were the kiss of death. Party, yes. Vow renewal, no.

      • AZGirl says:

        Are you going to have to do that “consummate” thingy again…..

    • thedesigndiva2 says:

      jill… I always view these vow renewals as the kiss of death to the marriage….we shall see…I have always had a gut feeling since watching lisa and ken interact when they were redoing sur that all was not well between them… it was the same feeling I had and made mention about Carolines and Al’s marriage back a few years ago,,and lookey at them….

      • LaineyLainey says:

        oooh, maybe I should reconsider doing the Kiss of Death…er vow renewal. eek

          laineylainey..mr ford and I cancelled ours…we were going to do it last September and after much chatting …we axed it…we stayed true to our words from that day many years ago…no need in fixing what’s not broke….we do plan on 35 yr anniv. party in a few years though…just a PARTY… no vow exchanges….lol

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I just find it so fake and phony-you love each other so much you want to renew your vows on Bravo??? So contrived-do something romantic that doesn’t involve women you don’t consider your friends.

        • thedesigndiva2 says:

          jill..I thought it was sa FAKEY sounding when Ken suggested it to lisa…. and then of course lisa did the all fakey thing right along with it…. these shows have gone so far off course it’s not even worth the time to watch them on first run….I usually catch them…whenever…too many other good shows on now to watch and actually ENJOY…

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            I agree Diva-the vow renewal suggestion during the fake swing scene just turned me off. Makes Lisa look silly for acting like she had no idea ken would bring up such a thing. These HWs need some acting lessons STAT!!!
            Glad the job is going well!!!

        • kit9 says:

          It’s so phony. Ken’s suggestion of it was hilariously transparently fake. And, then Lisa did her patented, I-don’t-really-want-to-do-this-but-will-because-Ken/Pandy-wants-me-to schtick.

      • kit9 says:

        I know the scene you’re talking about. He wanted a kiss and she was completely disgusted with him and forcibly pushed him away like he had the plague.

      • realhousewifeva says:

        What’s wrong with Caroline and Al?

        I think Ken and Lisa’s marriage is fine. They are an old married couple. Ken is almost 70. What do people want them to be doing? Kissing and holding hands all day long? lol

    • kit9 says:

      I don’t think there would be a vow renewal without the show. To me, it’s clearly a for tv event. And, unoriginal.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      All of these parties are always staged for the show. Portia’s birthday is in February, but Kyle throws it in the summer to be filmed. How about a ‘dining room reveal’ party? Yolanda throwing a party to show of her ex-husband’s house? That’s a new one! Or Lisa’s tea parties..

      I’m not a ‘vow renewal’ type of person, but at least Lisa is having it at a good, round number: 30. Remember when Ramona did one at 17 years or something? It was like she was worried the show wouldn’t be around until her 20th, so she did it early.

      All in all I think vow renewals never seem to have good endings…Heidi Klum and Seal did one every year, Vicki did one on the show, Teresa and Juicy did one before he called her a c*nt on national TV, Jlo and Marc Anthony did one…

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Diva is right…it’s the kiss of death!!!!

      • pat says:

        I guess what I like about the vow renewal idea, is that it is a celebration of the success of a long-term marriage, which is kinda rare these days, and I feel is to be honored. It sounds like we have more than a few commenters here who are in happy long-term marriages. Why not celebrate that? And who doesn’t love a good party? I loved watching Ramona and Mario renew their vows, even tho it was a silly number of years to celebrate (17)… It was romantic and beautiful. And I love that the child they created could be a part of it.

        But by all means, if you think it’s gonna be the kiss of death for your marriage….Don’t do it!!!

    I rewatched some on BH last night just to see Pam Dana’s meltdown one more time. Then of course there is Maury’s trip to Zanuck’s home for the listing which was just stupid. He talking head was hilarious! It’s like ummmmmmm if a listing is overpriced and sitting on the market for a long time then it loses its appeal. Really? No sh#t Maury. Real Estate 101. This guy is such a genius.
    Zanuck’s home is going to need a special buyer IMHO. That two story library is really dated. Beautiful but dated. Backyard is gorgous. It is just a dated home and will need some jazzing up. So 21 Mil might be ok but renovations are definately needed.

    I have helicopters overhead and there must have been a really bad accident on the 101.

    • pat says:

      I was pretty surpised at Maury’s obtuse real estate observations. Really stating the obvious there, dude.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Another good one from pat. thanks for saying what I was thinking. He really plays to the cameras. It was humorous.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      lol I laughed at the Real Estate 101 logic, too…but I just finished my real estate classes and it’s not easy, so I applaud Mauricio for being so good at what he does.
      The house sold for 21 mil. I wonder who bought it.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        I’m sure he’s an excellent realtor. Reality Show Acting? not so much.

      • Rebecca says:

        A European investor. He’s going to have to do soem remodeling. That whole house only had one bedroom.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      I loved how she was talking about Brandi not fitting in with their group. To Taylor. Like her and Taylor are the pinnacle of Beverly Hills wealth and class. LMAO

  22. SC Girl says:

    Ladies I need some advice. I have commented here on occasion.
    I stopped smoking 7 weeks ago back. I have gotten to be so depressed.
    Have any of y’all or your family member quit smoking recently and experienced Anything like this? I know some people on the net are saying they are getting super depressed too.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Congratulations on quitting. I am sorry to hear you are hitting a rough patch right now but once you get through it, quitting smoking will be one of the best things you ever did.

      Did you take anything to help you quit or did you do it cold turkey? I know that some anti-smoking aids have been linked to depression and sever night terrors.
      I quit about 8 years ago (pretty much cold turkey) and I don’t remember feeling depressed afterwards…although I did sometimes feel anxious and fidgety.

      • SC Girl says:

        I did do the smallest patch for 4 weeks. Then 3 weeks ago Monday just stopped with it.
        Just everyday I’m getting worse and worse. I know some people are having problems with
        That new 1 week patch but I just used plan old Walmart brand. I don’t know anyone around me that has knowledge of just recently quit people to ask if they are having problems too.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Oh SC girl, I don’t know anything about that. Congrats on quitting smoking – that Is so hard to do!!! Good for you!! As for the depression, the only thing I can say is…talk to your doc; maybe a good Rx will help you transition from smoker to non-smoker. Maybe the smoking was masking an existing condition (depression)…I say that with absolutely no qualifications whatsoever, just my opinion. I do think you should address it, please don’t feel like you’re alone, treat it and don’t let yourself suffer needlessly. If left untreated, depression can escalate to a dangerous point and there’s no reason to let that happen because you can get help. Good luck and keep us posted.

      • SC Girl says:

        Thank you so much.

        • Just Wondering in Jersey says:

          Hi SC Girl. I quit 3.5 years ago by using the store brand patches from the 21 mg down to the 7 mg over a period of 2 months and I never experienced the depression you have had. Perhaps the make up of the patches has changed? Do check with your doctor. You don’t want to get started smoking again to relieve the depression. Congrats on quitting. It is the best thing you can do for yourself.

    • SC Girl…I don’t know if you have been over to my blog, but there is some good inspiration posts there that might help. Specifically tho, I can help you with this. Check out the About Me page and feel free to email me at the address on the Contact page and we can talk about it if you like. I am here for you! (I am also an ex-smoker and survived it!)

      • SC Girl says:

        I will for sure look at your site. Thank you.

        • shamrockblonde says:

          Hi SC and welcome! -congrats on quitting smoking – that took a lot of courage and while it might sound corny, I am proud of you – as for the depression, I agree, speak to your doctor about it – when I quit I did it cold turkey so I have no knowledge of the patch, but it is best to speak with your doctor about it – whatever you do, do not give in to the pull of smoking – you are stronger than that cigarette and you control it, not the other way around – take time to be proud of yourself for quitting and trust that you are strong – hand tight, and stay with us – we will help keep the depression at bay – we have some pretty funny people here – and we will keep you strong in your fight – in one way or another we are all warriors here, so we get being strong – believe in you – count your blessings and hold the good in your life close to you – there is grace in the simplest of things and that can give you great joy – and great courage –

        • Oh Good SC Girl….I would really like to help! It is what I do. Hugs!

    • T-Rex says:

      Congrats, I quit for about the third time in my life(hopefully the last) back on May 6th of last year. I used the gums previously, but this last time just quit cold turkey, and yes I was “mourning” my nicotine habit, not sure if I was depressed just frustrated and again in mourning for having to give up my beloved cigs since they were killing me. I could go back smoking tomorrow, to me it’s like crack, so I just fought through it, took up new hobbies to get my mind off the situation. Hears to you and your journey hopefully you will get back on track soon!

      • SC Girl says:

        T-Rex I think this is probably the case will me also, I think I was addicted my mind just can not even comprehend anything.

    • iceNfire says:

      Hi SC Girl – I quit smoking a few times, longest ever was 2 years but I never experienced depression. Each time I quit cigs I took up sunflower seeds…Hope you figure this out soon

    • BB says:

      First of all, congratulations! It’s one of the best decisions you will ever make. I quit cold turkey in 1996 and don’t remember getting depressed, but I’m sure it can happen. You need to talked to your doctor about it. Perhaps a low dose anti-depressant is in order. Be careful though. I have taken two anti-depressants (nothing to do with quitting smoking) and didn’t have good results with either. I’ll share my experiences with anti-depressants with you if you like.

      • Just Wondering in Jersey says:

        Like you BB, I have tried several different antidepressants and I seem to be allergic to them. Some more seriously than others. Nothing to do with smoking though. Now I just go with the flow and they can keep their darn old drugs.

      • SC Girl says:

        BB I bought so SAMe today and was going to give it a try. We will give it a few days and if it does not help I will go see my Doc.

    • Catseye says:

      Have you considered acupuncture? It works wonders for addictions and to get your body back in balance. Or perhaps talking walks? Sometimes just excercise can boost endorphins naturally.

    • pat says:

      I’ve never smoked…Well ok maybe while drinking rum & diet cokes in college. 😉 But I’ve heard hypnosis can help with all kinds of stress-related vices. That’s all I got.

    • Boobah says:

      Congrats SC Girl!!! I am so happy for you! What you are experencing is normal given that you have stopped cold trukey. The brain/body needs time to adjust. But you WILL adjust and feel better – the fact that you reached out tells me you’re on the right track. You should be very proud of yourself. I would bet that a lot of people would go back to smoking after experiencing what you described – but you didn’t! That is pretty awesome, if you ask me.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      FINALLY!!!! I knew it would happen!!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      juicy

    • Vegas Chick says:

      Wow! Ms. Phaedra is Kandi’s attorney too. Reunion should be interesting if Kim shows. Even if Kandi doesn’t win, it’s going to cost Kim a pretty penny to defend.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        I have to wonder that if Phaedra is the attorney, if this is nothing more than just a ploy and part of the story line for next season. For some reason, Phaedra don’t impress me as a capable attorney but that probably just because I mostly find her annoying.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          not to mention she was outsmarted by Sheree’s ex-husband, remember? She goes from unwisely mixing business with friendship with Kim Z. to now mixing business with friendship with Phaedra. Will she be suing Miss Everybody Knows next year?

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            LOL- That’s right.
            I don’t have much respect for Phaedra after her attorney sent Lynn a demand letter, especially that Lynn had been pretty supportive of her. Puck Phaedra….there I said it.

          • thedesigndiva2 says:

            laineylainey.. I sent info to Lynn when all that FAKE CUSTODY stuff was going on..FAKEDRA was NEVER the attorney of record and that Judge was not the Judge assigned to that case…it was for bravo filming and fakebysheree story line…
            fakedra hopefully will not return IF there is a next season…she comes across as a dirty person to me..and her faces are just …… so gross….. I tend to beleive what was written abour her in that book last year…. she’s def SHADY SHADY indeed….

        • pat says:

          Yeah, I can’t see Kandi hiring Phaedra for a legit case. Made-for-Bravo tv, sure.

          This probably also doesn’t bode well for Kim’s return to Bravo. I don’t think Kandi would get into litigation with Kim if she didn’t have Bravo’s seal of approval.

        • $25,000 says:

          I had the exact same thought you did about if having Phaedra as the attorney just means it’s a storyline thing. I tend to think not, however, because Kandi was clearly deeply hurt by what Kim did to her. I remember seeing her cry about it at some point. I bet now that Kim is off the show, Kandi realizes that the only way she’s going to get the money she is due is to sue her. I hope Kandi recovers every dime that she deserves!

        • chismosa says:

          Haha! This made me lol

    • T-Rex says:

      And note the “timing” of the lawsuit, we know KimZaGoldDigga was fired from the franchise and probably also NOT showing up for the Reunion, so did Bravo give the “okeydokey” for them to finally go after her? Hmmmmm I think that while she was officially part of the “group” that they didn’t sue her due to the wording in the contracts.

      • Contessa says:

        Kandi should sue the beyotches ass from here to kingdom come. I doubt that Kim will have a leg to stand on, as I believe a lot of the discussions about the song are on film – don’t forget there are reels and reels of the stuff in Bravo’s warehouse. It was simply wrong, wrong, wrong of Kim to do what she did. Kandi made her sound good and it was a catchy fun tune that we all laughed about. But right is right. Kandi, of course, should have gotten an agreement first, but sometimes these things happen with friends.

      • realhousewifeva says:

        Kim is going to the reunion, she has tweeted about it.

    • kit9 says:

      Wooohooooo!! Love it!

    • Cruickal says:

      I agree with other posters that I think this isn’t for real. “Don’t be tardy” is the themes song and title for Kim’s new show on bravo so I kinda think kandi suing her would somehow be kinda of suing bravo for the use of it too. But I’m no lawyer so that’s really just a guess. Kim tweets that they were filing the reunion today but I haven’t seen Andy post pictures like he normally does when reunions film.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Andy is in Austin, TX today (I believe), so I doubt he’s filming right now with the Atlanta ladies.

      • TexasTart says:

        Cruickal – Kim did NOT say the reunion was being filmed! One of her followers said that and she did not correct them, she just laughs at it because she doesn’t give a crap about her followers – or the truth for that matter!

        • Cruickal says:

          Ah thank you both. I was kinda confused on how he was gonna get back to Texas from Atlanta in time for his show 🙂

    I’m so glad I stopped drinking the RHONJ kool aid last season. No need to watch it ever again since Danielle is back. It’s just a big sh*t storm and Bravo likes their sh*t storms on their RH franchises.
    Sad to see Mary get the mean girl treatment on RHOV, but I guess every show has to have their drama creators ie: Jody, Ronnie.
    That Kenya video was funny, but she is NO Beyonnce.
    The Trial is back on again today….I’m addicted to Jodi Arias’ trial HELP ME!!
    21 days until I go to Jamaica. I need this vacation so badly it’s not even funny.
    Happy Hump Day!!

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I’m addicted to that damn trial too but today was half day at school so my girls are home and I can’t watch…I will catch Nancy Grace tonight and get up dates here from Trudie and kit!!!

      • Lisa Renee says:

        Hey Jill, how you doing doll. So thrilled to hear you wont have TV on during trial when the girls are home. Brava to you! I will never forget when the OJ trial was on. One night preparing dinner TV was on since we watched wheel of fortune during dinner to see which of the girls could solve the puzzle first. Right at the end of the local news the anchor spoke about how OJ peeked through a window to watch Nicole give a BJ to her boyfriend. I never scrambled for a remote so quick in my life, too late. My kid was not even allowed to watch music videos until boarding school. Anyway she caught the word & asked me point blank what oral sex was. I try & explain it in sterile technical terms as a sex act between a man & a woman. She covered her ears & said she no longer wanted to know. I can’t imagine trying to explain the Arias trial to a young child. Loving your tenacity, makes for great convo’s to read. Yesterday was excellent from everyone who posted. My best to you & the family, Lisa

        • Lisa Renee says:

          Jill, P.S., I wanted to let you know HLN started a new program called HLN after dark at 9 central, 10:00 for you. You can DVR that & watch after the girls are in bed. 🙂 Lisa

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          My older daughter would throw up if she heard all the sex talk during the trial!!! I could never leave that crap on with them home! Annabelle is smart and savvy but she doesn’t need to hear all that mess. I was watching a show the other night and the word “gay” came up-Maggie has been asking me what it means ever since. I want to handle it the right way so I told her I would explain it to her when we had more time….. Any suggestions????

          • iceNfire says:

            Hi Jillnntj – When my kids were little the little boy next door was gay, they noticed and asked me about him so it was an easy in for me. Do your kids know or know of anyone gay?
            Did anyone watch Dance Mom’s last night with ALM pushing the topic of gays onto the moms? Way out of line! I was pissed!

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              We do have a gay friend but I don’t think Maggie is old enough to know-she is 6. If I tell her gay means that boys like boys and girls like girls-in her mind she will think I’m talking about first grade!!!!

              • iceNfire says:

                Oh that is different the little boy I was referring to was only 5 years old and always dressed in his sisters dresses and his mothers heals. He was accepted asbeing gay since as long as he can remember

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              Thanks for the reply ice!!!

          • Lisa Renee says:

            Jill, that is a tough one. How much you explain comes down to age. If you have not given her the starter book about our bodies & how babies are made I would delay it. It’s OK to say to your child that you will answer her questions when she is old enough to understand. I have used it often, stressing that school work is all she needs to worry about. I started a notebook for ashley to write down questions I said I would explain when it applied, she kept me to it. The whole topic of homosexuality is deep & trying to explain it before she learns about heterosexuality is almost impossible to make sense to a young child. Also, when explaining you have to discuss religion, tolerance & acceptance of people who are not like her mommy & daddy. IIRC, Ashley was 13 when I had to explain what a lesbian was, it went well & she didn’t run screaming out of the room. Because I live to phuck with my kid I asked her if she wanted to know how they have sex, that did send her screaming from the room. Good times lol! Like most things with parenthood its a judgement call only you can make. Hope that helps, Lisa
            I

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              It did help b/c you let me off the hook!!! I think when Maggie can grasp heterosexual relationships it will be the right time to talk about it. The notebook is a good idea. Annabelle seemed to be able to put things together on her own when she was Maggie’s age but Maggie is full of questions!!!
              Terrible woman you are for phucking with poor Ashley… You give me great ideas on to screw with Annabelle!!

              • Lisa Renee says:

                Jill, I get that. We want to validate our children & answer their questions. God forbid they feel dismissed, YKWIM?. Thats why I came up with the notebook. She felt validated, heard & respected (all that happy horseshit we want to give to them) & had an outlet for what is simply curiosity. I learned the hard way not to answer everything the minute it is asked. A good line is to tell them to let you “marinate” on something. Buys a ton of time when they start to smell like teenagers lol. Phuckin with my kid is my favorite sport, can’t wait for her to get here tomorrow, Lisa

      • kit9 says:

        • trudie says:

          He also pointed out that the shelf she jumped up on to get the gun could only hold 40 lbs, and was the type of shelf that is held up by 4 pegs and would flip if you put weight only on one side. And yet, nothing in the closet was disturbed. Hmmmm.

          I also think I heard her imply that Travis may have been the one who had the knife in the bathroom.

          • kit9 says:

            I haven’t gotten to closet part yet, I’m about an hour behind…wow! Great stuff! I’d love if they could drag her back to the scene and make her climb up there and demonstrate how she did it.

            • kit9 says:

              I know exactly what he’s saying about the shelves. I have a cabinet with those types of shelves and pins and I’m constantly knocking them off because I push down on them in the front and they crash down! Wow, what a great point he made!

      I thought Kenya was mocking the Beyonce thing and poking fun at herself. I find that savvy and makes her look better. People who can laugh at themselves come off better to the public.

    • iceNfire says:

      LoL – She is pointing the finger at Dana (Don’t look at me ‘Kyle’ it’s Dana that’s a mess 😛
      As I was watching Taylor sit down with Dana, I was shocked! Dana is a mother. I could not believe the things she was saying. I’m not sure if this is the “new Dana” or what is going on with her, but I certainly don’t recall her being like this before. It seems she is on a destructive path and hope she gets her act together.

    • T-Rex says:

      I found it interesting that VileKyle needed two blogs this week, methinks the Lisa Blog was something she had been planning to launch as a counter-attack to the bad publicity she has taken recently, then of course she realized she needed to do the PR “Plug” for her clothing store.

Yes, I’m all caught up on the RHOV (For RabbleRouser, http://www.watchseriesus.com/search/label/The%20Real%20Housewives%20of%20Vancouver ).

    I’m really quite tired of all of these women and their husbands, if they exist. Particularly true of BH. Bravo has gone Way overboard with these infomericial staged scenes. Co List the Zanick cottage? Really? I know we’re all a bunch of moronic bottom feeders but, please Bravo.. Try a little harder. Am I the only one who doesn’t believe that store is Kyle’s? I haven’t seen the discussions in the past couple days so that’s a legit question. Vow renewal… I guess we know what hell we’ll have to suffer for the end of the season. How many episodes is This fiasco going to take? And someone PLEASE TELL ME, Why The Phuck did they bring that useless POS Extra in the background back for? Is She Really the only person in that city that could talk to? What an assult to the eyes and ears.

    NJ? Over it too. I’ll watch for awhile but I won’t be engaging in any debates about it.

    I guess that’s it. Have a good day everyone.

    New Pope has been elected. I can’t believe how many people are there.

      I’m watching. It’s exciting and I’m not even Catholic.

    • Rebecca says:

      Habemus papam!

      A Jesuit from South America is avery smart choice. That being said, the next one better be Italian….

      • pat says:

        Haha. I was in Rome in September. It’s surreal to think we were sitting in the Sistine Chapel, the very place the conclave was held.

      • lillybee says:

        He is 76 and had to retire as bishop when he turned 75.

      • chismosa says:

        Rebecca to me he is basically Italian. His parents are otb from there – he just happened to be born in Argentina. Helps the political part of having a pope in the Americas, the RC Church’s best chance of increasing membership +++ he is ethnically 1st generation Italian so it relaxes people who have been clammoring for an Italian pope and/or simply a European.

  32. AZGirl says:

    Video previews on Bravo site is great. Faye tries to start trouble for Brandi saying that she had sex in Kyle’s bathroom at the White party. Yolanda shuts her down big time. Of course Adrienne starts in on the gossip and Yolanda shuts her down too. Total burn. Loving YoYo

    • iceNfire says:

      Hi AZGirl – Exciting news!! Kid was just offered the job in AZ at more money than he was expecting! And almost $8,000 in moving expenses!! We are all very proud of him and he is Very Excited which thankfully is contagious since I’m not dwelling of the down side of having a kid living in a different state 🙂

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      And I have watched the video more than once! Love seeing both Faye and Adrienne get their nastiness shut down and their sheepish expressions when they realize they got owned.

      • New Pope is Jorge Mario Bergoglio from Argentina.

      • AZGirl says:

        Sheepish is so right! Dumb just like sheep.

      • iceNfire says:

        I watched more than once too, can’t wait for it to air so I can watch in slomo. Did anyone watch in slomo when Yo gave Brandi those shoes? Witchard sister faces LoL

      • T-Rex says:

        WCW – BWAHAHHAHA I love YOLO they have to bring her back, the HoofMaloof was SO dissed in that preview, again she is completely unarmed in a battle of wits, or just when confronted with the TRUTH. No wonder she didn’t show up to the Reunion. Oh and I noted that Paul left her party in the clip to go where, TO HIS HOUSE the REAL one he has been living at for more than 6 weeks at this point. He was tired of the sham, they both knew the legal separation paperwork was about to drop, again the HoofMaloof thinks viewers are stupid!

      • HuskerHuny says:

        Yolanda is my new hero. Adrienne and Faye are a big part of the reason why Kyle finds herself outside of the popular girls club. Until she shuts these two plastic faced witches down, she will be judged right along with them. It’s your choice Kyle – tell them to shut their pieholes or find yourself on the outside looking in. That’s a very unfamiliar place for you I’m sure!

    • Powell says:

      Oh love that. Can’t wait to see it. Must see TV.

  33. Contessa says:

    Jeff, don’t give up on the show, your snark is some of the best. I’m with you on the drunk, addict Kim – she needs to go by by and Yolanda kind of glossed over this in her Bravo blog, and in a way suggested there was much more to this than the pills. Remember last week she wrote that Kim gave her permission to speak to her doctor. I think Yolanda knows a hell of a lot of what is going on. I still like Brandi, Lisa and Yolanda. It’s pure ignorant bliss TV…

    • iceNfire says:

      With my sister I was allowed to speak to her doctor but he wasn’t allowed to tell me anything. I don’t know if Kim’s doctor actually spoke to Yo

      • T-Rex says:

        My mom is a nurse and when they were overmedicating my grampa, she marched her happy arse into the doctor’s office replete with his bag of meds, and did as I said SpaceCadetMajorKim’s family should do, and sprawled them on his desk and because Gramps agreed to the information be shared with my Mom, they went through all the meds. Needless to say they got rid of a lot of unnecessary medications that he was taking. My mom has also instructed other friends to do this with their loved ones especially if they are taking more than 5 to 10 different meds at a time. As long as you are in the room together and the patient agrees to the conversation a doctor can discuss the patients information. Now that being said maybe SpaceCadetMajorKim doesn’t want VileKyle to help her, but her children are adults and should take the “wheel” on this one, because they also have to see the problems. This is how folks wind up accidentally oversdosing and killing themselves because they don’t know what meds they are taking and why

        • iceNfire says:

          That’s right! I forgot about that, my sister’s doctor would allow me to tell him what was going on over the phone but only spoke to me when I went into the doctor’s office with her.

    • melthehound says:

      It’s almost over now 😉 .. FINALLY… I thought NJ took forever. If I’ve given up on them, I don’t know why I’m complaining, on a HWs blog, about not wanting to watch them … I’ve always had my favorites and still kind of do but, no longer to the point of defending them, any of them. To me, they just aren’t worth the time anymore. They aren’t worth fighting, arguing, or even debating about for me anymore. Bottom line, they are All full of shit in my view. Yep, Lisa and Yoyo too. Too formulaic designed, not to show fabulous (I can’t believe I just used that word) people doing things that most of us can only dream of but, to get a rise. A reaction. Usually it’s civil, sometimes not. I just can’t fight, argue, or debate about people I have a mutual feeling of indifference towards anymore.

      Especially with this franchise and This season. One big giant long infomercial with each pushing their product or service (which they have every right to do).. That crapfest scene with Morris and watzername at the near end of the last episode (in a likely already sold house) was just pathetic. I mean really… If these people don’t have natural storylines then replace them. ALL of them. They Just Are Not That Interesting. This crowd, to me, has become the west coast Gorgas. I really find myself wondering how much of this was shot during the actual production season and how much was shot as filler, post season. We know that Bravo scripts these shows, perhaps based on what they are given by the cast, but nothing ever has happened as we are shown. I’m sure it’s just me though. You don’t have to worry (if you were), I’m not leaving, just taking a break from the HWs fakery.

      • Formerly Addicted to Bravo says:

        completely agree. Kim has made this one unwatchable for me and I was already not watching NJ anymore but will actually take steps to put a dark cloth over the tv on the days they air the episodes with Danielle just to ensure no accidental viewing.

      • pat says:

        Jeez, what a buzz kill….JUST kidding!!! What you say makes total sense. Sigh…

  34. realhousewifeva says:

    Dana’s twitter bio says “Guest star on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” It’s so pathetic it’s almost sad.

    • nyc mama says:

      She is pathetic. It looks like her stint in London isn’t going all that well either. She tweeted that it is cold there and so are the people. What she doesn’t realize is that you can’t run away from yourself. No matter where she goes she will turn people off with her obnoxious attitude. Her new bf is also a sleeze so it seems water finds its own level. She has been trying to plug her own, new show with the hashtag #rhbh for months but I’m not even sure if anyone has picked it up to air.

      Yelp has some reviews for Kyle’s store:

      Funny your son’s friends said he looks like an Amish man. I guess he’s trying something new.

  39. boston02127 says:

    I don’t understand why Brandi keeps getting a pass for saying anything that is on her mind and dropping the F bomb whenever she feels like it or getting hammered at a public events. If I did that I’d probably get thrown out of school, lose my job and not have a friend in the world. Getting away with acting stupid and trying to be cute about it is a hugh turn off.

    I don’t like people like that. Brandi isn’t that cute to keep acting so stupid.

    • iceNfire says:

      hi boston i haven’t seen you in ages, hope all is well. I heard Brandi was drunk at a recent book signing and made a fool of herself on wwhl….plz don’t hate me for giving her a pass just for being a Brandi viewer. (plz note I didn’t say ‘fan’)

      • boston02127 says:

        Hi iceNfire—I like Brandi! I just feel like some things with her are getting old.

        Hope you are well too! Congrats on the new job, sounds excellent. (son or daughter)?

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Hey Boston-how you been??

      • boston02127 says:

        HI Jill, I’m good, thx. Busy but good. How have you been? 🙂

        • Nancy says:

          boston,
          What do you think of the new Pope? I like that he is coming from South America.

          • boston02127 says:

            I am so happy with the new Pope. I have good faith in their decision. I have to admit that I was hoping for Cardinal Sean O’Malley but it will be nice to have him home.

            • Nancy says:

              He doesn’t like to waste money so he takes public transportaion and visits the poor often so I think I’m going to like him. 🙂

            • chismosa says:

              I’m hoping for Dolan for next time myself! But my family thinks he needs to learn more languages first. That is an issue I feel.

          • chismosa says:

            Hi Nancy I like that the Catholic Church was quite savvy in choosing a pope who is basically Italian, his blood is all Italian, he was just born in Argentina so to me it’s like they got an Italian pope but got it in the Americas to at least marketing-wise, optimally recruit where they best have their chances. The only growth is happening possibly!!- in the Americas (they have to beat the Evangelicals and mormon missionaries of course)

            Plus some articles im reading said insiders said he was #2 to Ratzinger at the last conclave but then took himself out of the final votings so that’s how they easily got to Ratzinger/ Benedict last time.
            Very interesting info coming out.

            His Italian sounds so Spanish I love it, I would think his Italian would be more authentic since his parents were otb! Lol

    I have been taping the Jodi Aries trial. I am hooked. I NEEEEEEED for this to be over. Is anyone else keeping up with the trial?

    • Nancy says:

      I keep thinking the prosecuting attorney is going to have a heart attack.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Nancy I keep thinking her is gonna slap her silly…I want to!!!

        • Nancy says:

          It’s very interesting to watch her get under his skin. It’s entertaining for me but not
          to the family’s involved. I keep looking at Travis’s brother. I’m not sure I could just sit
          there day after day if I were him.

      • boston02127 says:

        Nancy, I can see why. Asking her questions (with all her twists & turns) is like talking to a door.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      We have quite a few trial addicts here-I started watching the trial recently but a few people here have been following from day one… We are all hooked!!!

      • Nancy says:

        I don’t think she’ll get the death penalty.

        • boston02127 says:

          I don’t either. That’s a decision that I could never make as a juror.

          • Nancy says:

            Nor I.

          • trudie says:

            My husband was on a murder trial and the defendant got the death penalty. He raped and stabbed a 12 year old girl to death. Sentencing someone to death is not an easy decision to make. I don’t think any jury makes that decision lightly.

          • lillybee says:

            I think that in California if a person doesn’t believe in the death penalty, they can not sit on a capitol murder case.

            • trudie says:

              I am pretty sure that in any capital case, before you can sit on the jury you have to say that you would be willing to sentence the defendant to death. Or, I could be wrong.

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                I don’t know if I could do it-however Jodi Arias is making think I could!!!

      • chismosa says:

        Count me in, I’m hooked.

    • AZGirl says:

      Are you kidding? It is here. In my face and I can’t stand the fact that taxpayer’s money is wasted on this ridiculous trial. Trust me, that prosecuting attorney is used to this and he will come out with a win.

      • Catseye says:

        I wonder if the juror’s will write a book about their experience? I’ve heard that one lady is a prolific note taker.

      • chismosa says:

        Yeah I don’t worry for that prosecutor. This is all in a day’s work for him. No biggie.
        I feel for you having to watch this day-in and day-out. I can’t imagine the local papers you have.

  41. Mene Seela says:

    Shhhh! Don’t say “trial addicts”, Nancy might make you see her addictionologer husband.

  42. Putchka says:

    I have been watching the Arias trial. I got very interested in real-time true-crime stories since the Jeffrey McDonald case (doctor, green beret, high school quarterback, most handsome, etc.). My ex went to school with this egomanical monster (Ice pick through his 2 daughters heads). My ex was the family’s lawyer before the murder. Her family used his law office to research information that ultimately got him convicted, Mr. Kassabian was a sweet man. This even wasn’t his biological daughter. Jeffrey McDonald has a crazy brother too. Used to peep in our windows. Eventually got arrested for threating on the president, Ronald Reagen. So I love true crime. I know the backstories. Much better than fiction.

    • iceNfire says:

      Hi Putchka – I no longer follow trials and have nothing positive to say about our judicial system so I’m keeping it zipped. Good to hear from you tho 🙂

    • trudie says:

      Wow – Putchka, that is just creepy.

      I love true crime too.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I love true crime books-sometimes they scare the crap out of me but I still read em’!!

        • Putchka says:

          Hey Jill, the best true crime book is “The Nutcracker”. My favrorite. By Shana Alexander. Wow, she was such a nut job. Like Jodie Arias. Anyway, love your comments. You keep it interesting.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Thank Putchka-I will look for that book…thanks for saying that about my comments too. Nice to see you back here!

      • Putchka says:

        Hi Trudie! Thanx for the reply. I get so interested in what people are capable of. I’ve been mad before, but not “slit the throat down to the spine” and stabbing and shooting. The worse thing I ever did was scratch my ex-husbands bald head before a trial. Not a criminal trial, a real estate thing. But we were embarressed. Needless to say, we’re no longer togethor.

        • Nancy says:

          Esp your children! What a monster.

          • Putchka says:

            Just want to say hi Nancy… You always have someting interesting to say!

            • Nancy says:

              Hi Putchka,
              I have followed that case for years. I’m not 100% there yet on guilty but I’m pretty close.
              Good to see you again. 🙂

              • Putchka says:

                Nancy, I also knew the Defeo family (Amityville Horror). I was born and raised in Amityville. A good friend of mine was on the jury. Oh, the stories she had (after the verdict). Another reason I love a juicy true crime story.

          • Mene Seela says:

            Hiya Nancy, I tried to make funny to you about the other day. I hope it was OK.

  43. Putchka says:

    Oh, I forgot to say. Arias is a liar. Just like McDonald. She’ll go to her death denying. Just like him.

    This is for Realhousewifeva, I saw upthread that you said you were taking Real Estate classes and tried to comment but couldn’t, just wanted to wish you luck!! I’m a realtor here in CA and let me tell you the exam has NOTHING to do with what goes on in the business at all, not sure if its like that in all states though! lol

      Hi djp – How was date?

      • djprincessc says:

        Hiiiiii iceNfire! Thanks for asking but unfortunately we didn’t end up going out, I posted about it on Mondays blog I think but he was running late and I wasn’t about to wait for him, lol its kinda a long story and he did apologize a few times. We’ve talked since then briefly but idk his behavior kinda has me iffy about him. I’m so over dating! lol.

        • iceNfire says:

          Oh I will go back and look, I’m back to playing Farmville 😳 so I missed it. Hoping you don’t skip dating and head to the alter 😛

          • djprincessc says:

            Oh no worries, I think I posted it pretty late so I didn’t really think anyone would see it. I’m def not going to skip dating for the alter, but its hard to find normal men who aren’t lazy when it comes to dating! I’ve dated a lot but nobody comes close to being relationship material!

            • Nancy says:

              There are plenty of single men in AA. LOL

              • djprincessc says:

                Hahahahah Nancy! I have nothing against recovering alcoholics in the slightest, but honestly my father has the tendency to leans towards having a problem himself, which is why he doesn’t drink anymore and hasn’t for going on 5 years I think. Dealing with that was/is a lot for me and I don’t think I’d have the patience to have the same type of situation with a boyfriend/husband! Idk if that makes sense?

                • Nancy says:

                  I was just kidding dj. I’m in AA so I can make fun of it. So glad to know that your dad gave it up. A very wise move needless to say.

                  • djprincessc says:

                    I remember you saying you were in it, I really admire those who actually stick with the program, its a lifestyle change. My dad never did AA but stopped on his own, he went years and years without drinking before then slowly started again a while ago and finally stopped again and like I said I think its been 5 years. Its just crazy how some can’t drink because they become different people and honestly if it wasn’t for my mom IDK where he’d be!! I’m glad you’ve been wise too 🙂

                  I’m in CA!! Thats so funny what you say about that bc I’m hispanic but born here and I don’t like hispanic men, hispanic men born in other countries are usually very controlling and possessive. I can date hispanic men who are born here and Americanized and have no problem but normally I like white guys, they are so much more laid back, controlling men (like Porscha’s Cordell) and I do not mix well AT ALL. I’ve never dated asian but I do agree they are very family oriented, my best friend is filipino and family is everything to them as well 🙂
