Kandi Burruss Sues Kim Zolciak / Rachel Zoe Project / Survivor Meltdown

Kandi Burruss Sues Kim Zolciak and Other Gossip by NoMoreDrama

Well – it finally happened.  One housewife is suing another.  I’m not talking about a cease and desist letter.  This is for real and over real money.  I shouldn’t be surprised, but I am.  I thought Kandi Burruss was over Kim Zolciak not paying her for Tardy for the Party.  But I guess once their friendship fell apart, there was nothing stopping Kandi from trying to get what she thought was owed to her.  They discussed it at two reunions and Kim made some sort of vague promises to pay.   Anyway – the Courthouse News is reporting that Kandi is suing Kim for illegally licensing and distributing a song Kandi co-wrote.  Kandi’s lawyer – Phaedra Parks.

Kim’s response (on twitter) was deflection:  “actually my daughter @BrielleZolciak was the original songwriter!”  And then: “People will do anything for publicity! So funny yet so sad!”  

Kandi:  “the original version of that song was a joke. Not what people bought. The only thing that’s the same is the title.”

The timing couldn’t be worse with the reunion shooting yesterday.  This was Kandi’s tweet from Tuesday: “Well, we’re shooting the #RHOA reunion on weds. Im NOT looking 4ward 2 it. I can already c its gonna b DRAMA. Arguing makes my stomach turn.”

Kim seemed upbeat as she headed to the reunion, “On my way to shut it down!!! Looking fab much thanks to my amazing stylist.”

Kim’s lawyer says it is a publicity stunt because there isn’t enough money to make a lawsuit worthwhile (according to toofab).  Perhaps it is a publicity stunt with both ladies having their spin off shows returning to Bravo soon.

Meanwhile, Andy Cohen has spoken to E! News about Adrienne Maloof skipping the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion.  “She stiffed me.  I was not pleased. Also, I feel it was bad for her because, why let six women have the last word on an entire season? I think she should have been there to speak her mind, and she may be surprised with some of the directions the conversations took. ”  (updated – sorry I cut and paste the quote and included some text that wasn’t actually a quote the first time around NMD).  

And finally, reports are surfacing that Kim Richards was out of it at her niece Paris Hilton’s birthday party in Vegas.  According to an eyewitness account in Star Magazine, “she arrived at Paris’ birthday party at Harrah’s Peek nightclub in Lake Tahoe looking loopy, with a very unnatural smile plastered across her face. She was gyrating with a shirtless go-go dancer, stuffing dollars in his pants and dancing wildly on stage. It was inappropriate at a family event!”

Rachel Zoe Project by Amy

The episode opens with Rachel and Rodger reading reviews on their terrace. The reviews are good, one calls her collection “easy breezy and not just for boho girls anymore”. Rodger brings up immediately that he hopes that they can sell their collection. Mandana is at the Nordstrom meeting and is happy that they feel that there is an improvement with the line.

Rachel arrives with Skyler, who immediately starts having fun. Rachel doesn’t like going to the meetings because she worries that she intimidates the buyers. Rachel asks how they feel about long dresses and they think “hit or miss”, not everyone wants maxi skirts. Rachel takes this in stride and then decides to leave. She wants them to pick what they think will sell, not what she says, she feels rude being there telling them what to buy. They are into the leather shorts, as that is big for spring. Mandana says that this meeting was “ok” and that she hopes they are convinced to sell Rachel’s products.

rachel-zoe-project-season-5-gallery-episode-502-04The businesswoman part of Rachel wants to have her hand in every part of her ventures. She and Rodger arrive at their new salon, Dreamdry, and it still needs a lot of renovating. Rachel loves that in the drawing they have a Louis Vuitton bag on the floor. Rachel and her partner Robin discuss how they want the opening to be perfect. Back at Rachel’s office in LA she arrives with Skyler. Her business has expanded. She has 32 employees and 5 divisions. Eileen is the newest member. Skyler is unhappy and is vocally letting everyone know. Rachel has a media group who handle all of her social media. Rachel tries to give Skyler to Rodger but the little man is not having it. Rachel tells Rodger that when Skyler is 3 he will love him.

Rachel and Mandana haven’t slept well. Rachel is leaving next week for Paris fashion week. Rachel is confused by her bang and is overwhelmed. Eileen comes from a New York fashion background and Rachel feels that that makes her one step ahead. They have to style a band named Karmin in Coach fashion for a music video. Rachel remarks that she started out styling for music videos. Smaller boutiques are shopping from Rachel’s collection with Lauren, the collection manager. The owners love some looks but none of the maxi items seem to be selling.

Rodger and Rachel “Silbs” the assistant are unpacking boxes for Rodger to move into his office. They talk about his and Rachel’s dog, who is staying with her mom permanently. Silbs talks about how she needs to be a good listener and let him vent.

Mandana meets with Lauren to talk about how marketing went. They discuss that the editorial pieces don’t feel practical for consumers. Maxi’s don’t do well despite the fact that they are Rachel’s favorite part. They talk about one of her dresses that is really only a red carpet look. Mandana says that people need to stop protecting Rachel from bad news.

Eileen arrives at the Coach store to gather items for the music video. The video is supposed to be wintery chic. Eileen wants to pick out some fun and poppy choices. Eileen picks out a ton of things to make sure there are lots of choices at the shoot.

rachel-zoe-project-season-5-gallery-episode-502-15Lauren talks to Rachel. She dreads this meeting because some of Rachel’s favorite pieces are not well received by the retailers. The leopard print is liked by many of the retailers. She tells Rachel that the maxis are not being well received. Rachel is wearing one and doesn’t understand why people don’t want them. She calls it “fashion bullshit” and doesn’t understand why they won’t sell. She feels that they are elegant and easier to wear than short dresses. Rachel is trying to decide what to do about her love of maxi dresses. She puts on a fur hat to help herself think. Rachel admits that she is new(ish) at this and she will modify but still put out these sort of pieces.

The Coach pieces are delivered and there are lots of boxes. Eileen hopes that Rachel is happy with what she’s chosen. Silbs delivers photographs to Rodger that are the most recent look of the salon. It looks as though nothing has changed since Rachel and he visited. Robin promised that the floor and walls would be done immediately. The salon is opening in 60 days. He calls her to discuss the progress. She doesn’t know when building will happen. The budget is apparently an issue. Robin says that some of Rachel’s choices are outside of their budget. Rodger says she shouldn’t have been presented with options outside of the budget and that they can’t bring this back to her.

rachel-zoe-project-season-5-gallery-episode-502-21Rachel finds a vintage Chanel bag in her closet and decides to use it for her computer. Rodger tells her that Dreamdry will not be ready on time. He tells her that some design elements can’t be afforded. Rachel says they cannot get rid of the chevron floor. Rachel wants him to bring her good news. Rachels talks about how she would run them into the ground financially if Rodger wasn’t taking care of it. Rachel decides that they should have their pow wows in her closet because she likes being there.

They day before the Karmin shoot and the musicians, Nick and Amy,  have arrived for their fitting. Eileen is nervous. Coach will be taking stills for their website. Rachel begins picking pieces. She is very happy with how Eileen did. Rachel says that she forgets how fun styling is. She asks Nick and Amy to sing and rap, which they do and it’s tight and awesome. Rachel is doing a 60’s mod take on “snuggly holiday”.

rachel-zoe-project-season-5-gallery-episode-502-26The day of the video shoot arrives and the styling space is very small. Eileen is worried because they are missing a cardigan. The shoot continues as they frantically search for the missing sweater. The commercial interlude involves Rachel styling Rodger and them bickering about her choices. They’ve been together 21 years and still seem to have fun. Veronica the intern is still searching for the cardigan. Rachel stops the shooting to fix the clothing. Eileen is worried because they could call for a wardrobe change at any time and they are still missing the sweater. Veronica finds that the sweater had fallen on the hanger. Rachel does not end up using the sweater anyways. Rachel and Skyler dance to the music playback. Rachel feels like it wasn’t really a work day because she had so much fun. Next week she and Rodger are off to Paris!

Welcome back Castaways. Last week, we said goodbye to two players. Shamar was taken out of the game by a grain of sand  in his eye. He seemed to be a pain in the ass thorn in everyone’s side so I don’t think most were disappointed to see him go. The fans then lost at the immunity challenge so they then had to vote out another player and that was Laura. Just as well, I think.. If she was going to be an asset at all in the challenges, her opportunity hadn’t arrived yet and it was costing them challenges to keep her around. Back at camp, it’s the usual banter. Nothing special comes of it except they all seem to think, that the immunity idol gets put back into play. You know, Reynold played his, he says, so he could tell the rest what he was really thinking and they couldn’t do anything about it, then. You superfans would know, Does the hidden idol ever get put back into play? I can’t say I’ve ever seen it happen but most are smart enough to hold on to them until actually needed. Not like what this dumbass Reynold did.

In a rare bit of footage, over at the Bikal (rare because they weren’t at council and didn’t vote anyone out) camp, we see Brandon talking to the rest. He tells them it was selfish for him to leave his family to run off and play this game. He asks them, at first opportunity, to vote him off. He assures them that if they do, he won’t pee in the food and burn the camp as he has previously promised to do. Only a few hours later, he’s changed his mind. He wants to stay, for his family. He’s now excited to feel back in the game and is even giddy about it. Make up your mind, Brandon..

Reward Challenge

sur1sur2It doesn’t matter what anyone has said at this point because it’s reward challenge time and they all have to play nice together in order to win some goodies. Probst ushers in the teams as usual and introduces the game as well as the reveal of the new Fans tribe (Gota). The challenge is pretty simple. Two members from each tribe will hold a rope holding up a net basket while members of the opposing tribe shoot coconuts into the baskets. Last person still holding on, wins reward for the team. (2 baskets each team). Three members of Bikal have to sit out. I know I heard Cochran say he wants to shoot so, Erik, Dawn, and Andrea. I’m thinking two things right now as I watch. One, Fans probably could have used Shamar to hold one of those ropes. Second, remember a couple weeks back, Pinky, was bragging about his B-Ball skills? Let’s see if he can put his coconuts where his mouth is. Well, I guess we aren’t going to find out because he’s holding a net, along with Brandon for the Bikal tribe. On the Gota tribe, it is the two old dudes, Michael and Matt (the beard).

They begin shooting. Reynold has targeted Brandon’s net and is doing a pretty good job of filling it. Sherri on the other hand, every time she throws a coconut at Pinky’s net, he hollars some word or phrase, and she misses. Kunta Kinte, Aye Karumba, other unintelligible things but, it’s working. Probst says, Sherri is worthless in this challenge. Ha! Coconuts are heavy so in addition to the strain of holding the nets up, it also takes strength to throw the coconuts and continue doing so. At this point they are all struggling to hold up the nets and Brandon drops his first. I think Reynold nearly filled the net. Malcolm is going after Matt and succeeds in making it too heavy for him. We are left with Pinky and Michael. In the end, it is Pinky who wins. The faves just went double time on Michael and nearly filled his net to the rim. Once again, Fans are going home empty handed.

At the Gota camp, it appears to have rained and they are trying to start a fire as they are talking about the loss. TH Eddie thought that today would be a turning point. The others are talking about something needing to change. Sherri isn’t saying anything, she was disappointed to get rid of Laura ’cause, she reminded her of her daughter. Isn’t that special? Remember last week, everyone was saying that they aren’t winning with P2 (Reynold and Eddie) on the tribe..

TH Sherri says that she went with the plan to bounce Laura and they still lost. Sourpuss. REALLY? Laura got winded opening locks on a crate. You Honestly believe that she would have had something to add to that challenge? Tell me sourpuss, How many coconuts did YOU sink? Your aim sucked, IF you got the damn nut up high enough to even go in. Pinky beat you with with his one or two word remarks. You really should check yourself because so far, you too suck at this game. It is crystal clear big huge red letter obvious to me at this point, that you expect the others to push you through to the end. I don’t know about everyone else, but at this point, you are My choice for next to leave the islands. If that idol is back in play, she better find it, quick, fast, and in a hurry and make sure everyone else knows she has it. I will be flabbergasted if these dumbasses continue to follow her lead, right down the toilet. Okay.. enough rant (for now)..

Well well, what do we see next? The entire tribe looking for that hidden idol. I guess my question has been answered because it does exist and guess who found it…. Reynold. For now, the Survivor Gods are definitely smiling on this guy. Let’s see if he’s stupid enough to reveal it again. All the others were looking as well, and in similar places, one (Michael) even said, that he hopes Reynold doesn’t find it, again. Reynold says that if he’s going to keep finding it he may keep playing it (joke).. He says that there is a direct correlation between opening your big fat mouth and the idol having to get played. Which is true. It happens every time. Oh, Brother… Back at the shelter, we see Eddie lying there. Doesn’t look like he made any effort whatsoever to find the idol. We see Julie preparing the cook pot for whatever slop they will be dining on that evening as Reynold confirms the P2 alliance with Eddie and tells him, he has the idol. Really? I mean, I knew this guy was a dumbass but come on… After he Just said something about opening one’s big fat mouth. Just, stunning. TH Eddie is laughing his ass off at Sourpuss Sherri combing the woods and the beach looking for the idol. I’ll admit, so am I.

Over at the Bikal camp, they are enjoying their reward. Steaks, sausage, and other fixins’ for a barbque. Things go south though, real fast. The tribe is talking it up about how well everyone did on the challenge. Then Pinky chimes in about how well he did on the challenge, as if he won it all by his lonesome once again spewing some BS about his basketball skills. This annoys the hell out of Brandon (admittedly, me too) and in TH, he tells us so and what a joke he thinks this alliance is. He’s tired of hearing Pinky run his mouth, (admittedly, me too). A little later in this scene, it’s raining and one of the women asks if something should be replaced, I guess it was leaking. Pinky says he isn’t worried about things like that but is more focused on winning challenges. In other words, in my view, Shamar 2.0. Brandon takes him to task telling him that he acts like a dictator around the camp (he does) and he isn’t going to let Pinky off of the hook on this. The others, privately, feel that Brandon is a loose cannon. Helloooooooooo… Have any of you Watched this show? Some of you Played with him before. Pinky is pissed and sulking on the beach about what has just happened. How Dare anyone challenge The Specialist on his leadership (because that is what has just happened). I personally would like to see Pinky win one of these challenges, single handed, as he seems to want us to believe he does.  Anyway, Brandon makes some sort of an apology to Pinky and to his face, Pinky accepts it. Behind the back though, Brandon is ‘Persona Non Grata’ and come next opportunity, he’s gone. He told Brandon, “Don’t bite the hand that feeds you”… (Remember that).

Over at Gota, It’s monsoon season (as it is at Bikal) and has been raining for 48 hours and they are all huddled in the shelter. Matt’s feet look like shriveled prunes, Eddie has a cold, everything is wet and no hope of being dry anytime soon. They’ve been getting their asses kicked in the challenges, and Matt just wishes something good would happen to their tribe. Back over at Bikal, They at least have a dry shelter. Brandon is starting a fire with the flint and then, in TH, he says, “Between Philip and Brandon, Who starts the fire? Brandon”. He goes on to say that he doesn’t need some 54 year old punk bitch telling him, don’t bite the hand that feeds you. You all know that in Pinky’s soft brain, he believes that he and this ‘stealth r us’ bit are the only reason that tribe exists. The People on the tribe may be part of it but they all think you’re a huge joke, Pinky. So do I. Anyway, Brandon is getting pretty salty at this point. He says “I’m a Hantz… I, feed me” (TH).

Cochran comes in with tree mail that reads “Today the tribes will be ‘boxing’, you’ll fight for your life in the game, No time for a communication breakdown, tonight, another will lose their flame”. We haven’t seen much tree mail this season, there was a point to this scene. TH Pinky says they have to get Brandon out of camp because he isn’t sane. He may hurt somebody (I doubt it). Sometimes you have to do the unthinkable, to make something else possible. I do believe he is talking about throwing the immunity challenge. Careful Pinky, that doesn’t always go as planned. (I will direct your attention to a couple seasons ago when the idiot kickstand carriers gave away Immunity to the women so they could vote out the black guy because the gay bigot didn’t like him. Who won that season?). Let’s see. Pinky tells Andrea (who has been kissing his ass since day one) what he wants to do and she tells Brandon. Brandon confronts Pinky about it reminding him that he thought this issue between them was squashed the previous day. Pinky brings up Stealth R Us reminding him of what his job was in this spy ring… Brandon tells him that is a demeaning joke, no one likes those names (I mean, dominatrix, Really Corrine?). Pinky says well then let them vote me off and runs away to let everyone else deal with the wrath that is coming. This is the part we saw in the preview last week where Brandon dumps the food, tears up a bit of the camp, all the while telling Pinky “Now vote me out, Bitch”. All the while, Dawn is trying to talk some sense in to him. TH Dawn notes that no matter what, throwing away immunity is never a good idea in this game. Brandon may have in fact, snuffed his own torch here. I feel Brandon’s anger here, but I don’t think that was the right way to handle it.

Immunity Challenge

Holy Shit. I don’t know how to recap this except to tell you to watch it for yourself but, I’ll try. This may be survivor history.. The teams get to the challenge site and Probst starts Probsting (he knows something is up). He asks Reynold how it is to be in the spot they are in and he says it’s rough, especially without all the amenities that the faves have. Dry shelter, food, they get along (Ha!), etc. Probst asks Cochran how discourse can affect the tribe to which he answers, it can be rough. Probst then turns his attention to Brandon because he’s kind of making faces (and Jeff knows what is going on at all times) and Brandon addresses the fans. He says they are about to receive a gift and don’t blow it by letting Pinky win (Brandon uses his real name. That’s a lot more respect than I have for the guy). He lets the fans, and Probst know, that it is the faves that will be going to council that night. Corrine pipes in with something, Brandon tells her to STFU, in so many words, because everything out of her mouth is bullshit.

The fans cannot believe what they are hearing and witnessing. Clearly the faves are uncomfortable with all of this. Probst calls Brandon to neutral ground, next to him, where he can address both tribes and Brandon continues his rant. Talking about the difficulty of coming off of the show last time and all that (I’m thinking boo freaking hoo). Probst then gives Pinky a chance to speak his piece and he begins in on how he always wanted to include Brandon in his Stealth R Us (I think this is the thing that really rubbed Brandon the wrong way, from day one), all the while, Brandon is calling bullshit on every word that comes out of Pinky’s mouth. At one point, Brandon reminded him of how he floated all the way to the end with his lips locked to Boston Rob’s ass and still didn’t win because everyone thought he was an ass kissing joke (I didn’t see it but that’s the only way it could have worked). Boston Rob played him for a complete fool (remember Sherri wanted Shamar as Her Phillip?). I think Pinky is hoping that someone’s lips are locked to his ass. I doubt it. Pinky brings up that Brandon was originally on board to get rid of Andrea and she starts crying. Probst stops Pinky and asks her what’s wrong. It comes down to she’s enjoyed team unity, grown kind of close to Brandon and it hurts her that he and Pinky are at each others’ throats. Pinky chimes in that he’s said nothing wrong to anyone, Brandon says “Phillip Shepard says nothing wrong, to anyone, ever” (I agree).

He further takes Pinky to task about being 100 years old thinking he’s never made a mistake. I’m sorry folks, I know you don’t like Brandon but he’s saying everything I’m thinking. Pinky is a complete joke. Probst tells Brandon that he doesn’t want this to get physical and that’s why he separated him from the rest. Brandon says “I’m doing this for you, Jeff” (not getting physical).. He notes to Brandon that his uncle is one of the most notorious ever to play the game and wonders if it’s in the genes.. Then, Pinky, who can’t keep that big mouth shut, pulls the biggest Bitch move I’ve seen yet. He brings up the finale of Brandon’s season where he was ‘disrespectful’ to his uncle and probably to his aunt too, who is ‘taking care of his kids’. Brandon had a natural reaction to that and I think Probst had to hold him back a bit. *I* wanted to cave in Pinky’s skull at that point. I’ll also note that Pinky is hiding behind the women. That’s where he’s been standing all along but I’m sure he feels safe there talking his shit knowing Brandon probably won’t go through the women to get to him. That’s just my take on that. Corrine says something, Probst tells her to shut it, he doesn’t need any input from the peanut gallery adding fuel to this fire. Dawn is visibly upset as are the others but she looks like she’s going to hyperventilate. There were other things said, this isn’t a full play by play and some of it may even be out of time order.

In the end, The faves hand over the immunity idol to the fans and tribal council is held right there. Brandon votes for Pinky, everyone else votes for Brandon, verbal vote. Probst asks Brandon if he’s okay with that, Brandon says he is. Probst tells Brandon to exit stage left behind the challenge area, he does and on his way, tells the fans to kick their asses and his parting shot, “Philip is a bitch”. I agree but, He’s still there, and Brandon is not.

I’ll close this episode by giving huge props to Probst for keeping a lid on this steam kettle. If it had gone physical, I doubt we would have seen it, it isn’t that type of reality show.

Next week kids, Corrine is planning to take out Pinky, Pinky is planning to take out Corrine. But wait, Although both tribes are feeling good, it looks like they are about to merge. We’ll see then how that all plays out. In case you are wondering, Yes, I did write this as I was watching it unfold, the first time around.

Watch it here at your leisure. With a warning. I know some of you are adverse to what happened on tonight’s episode, so you may want to choose to avoid it. Close ad and watch as free user – Start Video (you may have to press play as well). Download nothing and just close any pop up windows. Ask if you need help with that. You can also watch at CBS.COM (with the commercials and it is torture because you can’t skip them).

See you next week. Til then,

Peace, MTH aka WTFIJeff

I’m going to PS this recap with a question that I will answer for myself… Answer if you like or don’t… Which is more Toxic? Brandon? Or Pinky? I say Pinky. Brandon reacted honestly (I believe) and Pinky stood there and lied about his own part in it all. Let me explain a second why I say that. Everything Brandon said to Pinky was about him and directed right to his face and he didn’t stray to other members of Pinky’s family. In addition, it was about Pinky’s game play, underhanded as Brandon saw it. Pinky on the other hand has done nothing but talk shit behind Brandon’s back and when his own back was against the wall, made the bitch move of bringing up Brandon’s family and specifically, his kids. Not a man in my opinion and the name Pinky fits her quite nicely. I’ve had the displeasure of dealing with a number of Pinky’s both in the workplace and in my personal life. He is nothing but a backstabbing loser, I’ve known people like her nearly all my life. In case you’re all wondering if I just hate him on the show, the answer is no, I would hate him in real life too. There are no redeeming qualities in his type from what I can see and have experienced.

    Good morning everyone. Happy Friday eve. It’s sunny but very windy. I hope you’re having great weather in your neck of the woods.

    Kandi’s suing Kim. I’m surprised it hasn’t already happened. Oh well. Have a great day. 🙂

    • Lulu says:

      Goodmorning!!! A rare morning that is!! Have to say LOL Kandi suing Kim. I think she has to wait in line. Is the wedding planner and also her previous landlord suing her first??

      Any chance have you watched a show called “Catfish?” It’s about people who interact/date? online but never have met. The point of the show is to bring the two together. I watched the first two episodes and wow talk about sad!!!

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        LuLu-I have seen a few episodes of Catfish but I don’t watch all the time….they almost never end well!!!

        Hi Lulu. I’ve seen Catfish a few times. It just amazes me how those meetings turn out to be. They were on 20/20 I think it was last month talking about it. It’s gotten more steam since the shows started airing & then the Manto or whatever his name media blitz.

        • Lulu says:

          The first two definitely didn’t end well! I have to question what is wrong with these women?!?!?!? Come on the first episode “he” was a cue card writer? model? forgot something else? It’s soo painfully obvious that they are not who they say they are. I’m curious as to is it just desperation for a fantasy? I just think it’s strange.

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            I was saying something that before, especially when it comes to looks. A solid 10 isn’t just going to randomly message a 5 or 6 and try to sweep them off their feet.

            • Lulu says:

              good point! It kinda points out how superficial some people are. That’s really sad. In the case of number 2 haven’t seen the ending only the part where they met. They look like a good match and the man is sincere. But of course he looks nothing like his photo. To bad they can’t just be upfront with the way they look better or worse.

  2. nohausfrau says:

    Good morning all. Kandi suing Kim with Phaedra as the attorney. Total publicity stunt. I’m sure Kandi is owed the money but the timing just screams publicity.

    So Andy said that many of Adrienne’s costars changed their mind once the letter was released. I wonder who–guess it will come out at the reunion.

    It sounds like Kim may have relapsed. Too bad but not too unexpected. I think she was sincere about her recovery but she’s doing too many things to jeopardize it–the nose job, keeping meds in her home that cause altered behavior etc. I hope she gets off the show and back into a good rehab and then finds a good tough sponsor to teach her what sobriety really means.

  3. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Jeff-great Survivor blog. (Probsting-my new fave word)
    I gotta say Brandon is an idiot. He has no idea how to play the game. He is to emotional and a bit of a dummy. How could he let Pinky get the best of him?? As much as Pinky gets on my nerves-HE IS PLAYING. If his game play is questionable-so what. It’s Survivor-there are no rules. Out play out wit out last!! Brandon didn’t play last time and he didn’t play this time. He doesn’t deserve a spot on this show b/c he doesn’t love or play the game. All the tribe members standing around crying b/c Brandon was having a staged break down??? Really Brandon-if you can’t handle back stabbing, show boating, lying, scheming annoying loud mouth people how did you think you would ever “Survive”??? Pinky is annoying-so what? Deal with it and vote him out-dumping out food and having a hissy fit is not playing the game!!
    I don’t know who decided any of the returning players are “favorites”- I want to see people who love this game not people who can’t handle this game. (I don’t hate seeing Malcolm again though).

    • T-Rex says:

      JnnTj, I am right there with you when they first cast Brandon I was like WTF that kid is a walking time bomb, but not in a good way. Look Pinky is a lout, not a favorite and I hope he gets his comeuppance, but like you said he is playing the game and hitting Brandon in all the spots he knows will hurt. This is SURVIVOR if you can’t take the heat, backtabbing play then you sholdn’t be there. Brandon acted like some spoiled little brat, and he “wussed” out of the game by his actions. As I dislike Brandon the first go round, I was disheartened he won a coveted spot back in the game, and he did what I thought he would “crashed and burned”. Although one thing have to say this was a first for Survivor having a player have a complete mental breakdown and have an entire team come out and say we are throwing this challenge to vote him out!

      • Cathy Connor says:

        Morning, Am I the only one that while it does stink that Brandon took up a spot a real favorite could have had, Thank goodness for him or this season so far would be a snoozefest. Besides PinkyspiesRuspain inthearsewhateverdude, the other players are pretty boring. Think Brandon was brought on knowing he was drama Just sayin….LOL

        • Cathy Connor says:

          oh P.S. Thanks so much MTH for your recap it was spot on as usual !! Hope NMD is enjoying a much deserved vacation.

        • melthehound says:

          PinkyspiesRuspain inthearsewhateverdude
          ^^^^^^^^^^^^
          Hehe 😆

          I will give you that, it was interesting and the others are quite boring.

          You’re welcome.

      • melthehound says:

        To me, everything that happened was fair game until Pinky mentioned Brandon’s kids.

    • Realhousewifeva says:

      ITA!! I can’t stand pinky but that is the name of the game… I am so sick of the Hantz family sucking up reality tv airtime with their ridiculous antics

      • melthehound says:

        I haven’t seen any of the other Hantz’s but I agree with the sentiment that it’s time for some fresh blood.

        • realhousewifeva says:

          One of them was on Big Brother as well, and he acted like a typical Hantz, throwing a tantrum in the first week or two and getting himself kicked off.

          • melthehound says:

            I didn’t watch BB last summer but yes, I know. I think that was his other uncle, Willie (just because I’ve seen the name somewhere today).

    • melthehound says:

      Jill, I agree 100%.. B wasn’t able to handle the mental part of the game and that’s likely why he snapped. I didn’t recap it but in his ‘exit’ interview, he said that He engineered his demise on the game but it was his choice to go, not theirs. He’s fine with that. That day.. I don’t know about the next one though. I don’t know if he’s unstable as much as he doesn’t like being lied to, even though he, self admittedly, lied to the others, particularly Pinky (I haven’t forgotten that). That Is what finally set him off. Game play or not.

      As for Probsting… For me, it’s a borrowed word and I like to give credit where it’s due.. The YouTube recapper who I watch (Madrosed), Janet… She’s the first one I heard use that word. It fits however.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        His exit interview was annoying too-if he wanted to quit he should have walked away. He wanted someone to tell him to stay and when that didn’t happen he decided to say it was his idea to leave…. Whatever!!! Cry babies have no place in the game!!!

        • melthehound says:

          Again, no argument. He got exactly what he originally asked for at the beginning of the episode. Part of me wondered if that was all being the author of his exit after he first told the tribe that he thought he should go to be with his family. You know, Reality vs Actuality (thank you DIva).

    • trudie says:

      I wonder if production will replace all the food he threw on the ground when he wigged out. Probably not.

    • surfcityhb says:

      I am going to go with Brandon, ONLY because he frightened everyone in his tribe, especially the women. It started to look real dangerous with him ranting and becoming unpredictable. It is a game, like someone mentioned: outwit, outplay & outlast. I would not want to be around someone like him, especially when I saw the big (huge knife) within reach, too much of a loose cannon. I also don’t get why Brandon (and Survivor producers) brought him back given that he had a hard time getting back to his normal life the first time around. He needs help.

  4. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    I guess they did do the ATL reunion yesterday…The Lawyer tweeted about it. How did they do that with Andy in Texas?? Phaedra said “back to work” like she is in ATL so IDK what’s going on?????

    • Powell says:

      Maybe Andy flew in for it.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        According to Phaedra she got home at 4am and Andy was in Texas last night for WWHL

        • chismosa says:

          I was just going to ask this !? Andy has been in Austin every night it seemed. So wait, did he fly to Atlanta and back to Austin or he made ALL THE WOMEN fly to him?
          Oh Lordy

          Well Kenya was there Sunday so maybe she just stayed on? Weird

    • TexasTart says:

      Someone, sorry I can not remember how to spell the screen name, but this person said Kim tweeted.about the reunion and Lainey said Andy is here – I confirmed he is here in Austin.
      Looked up the tweet and it was Kim’s follower saying that and Kim ‘lmao’ replying. So I deducted there was no.reunion – but now I look up Phaedra and she is specifically saying there was…..so who was the host?! Don’t tell me Andy flew back and forth and because all he tweets about IN the daytime is being in Austin.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        NeNe tweeted about it too so I’m pretty sure there was a reunion yesterday… But without Andy?? Strange…

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Someone suggested that the ladies all flew to Austin. I wonder…

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Lainey..NeNe tweeted that she “just landed in Atlanta” on Tuesday night and Phaedra was home at 430am….Im so confused!! I dont think Kim would fly to Texas for the reunion….(or go to S.Africa)

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Oh and Kim tweeted about the reunion too-she said something about loving the people who supported her for the last 5 years…something like that.

    • Realhousewifeva says:

      I was wondering too because yesterday morning meme tweeted that she just arrived back to ATL, presumably to film the reunion, but Andy was in Texas? Did he even tweet about it like he usually does?

    For SC Girl

    I was reading your posts yesterday about quitting smoking and depression. You mentioned eating tons of sugar since quitting. I’m not a dr, don’t play one on TV, but I can tell you from personal experience sugar makes me incredibly depressed. A couple of cookies, ok, no problems. Whole sleeves of girl scout cookies, problem. Same with ice cream. It happened to me often enough that I actually tracked it about 20 years ago. So, one major component of your depression problem may be your sugar intake. Congratulations on quitting smoking and good luck.

    • Catseye says:

      So true. There was even a book out about 20 some years ago called “SUGAR BLUES,” about that very subject. I know a lot of people don’t like him, but Dr.Phil’s advice on quitting a bad habit is to start a good one.

    • SC Girl says:

      Good morning all. Do a bit better today.
      Well funny enough catmom1 I had just cut back on the sugar this past week. So it is probably everything. I meet some nice older man while I was out yesterday. He claims I have 5 more weeks and all will be good. I hope so, because I was just about worn down yesterday let me tell ya.

      • chismosa says:

        Hi there, I read all your posts about the smoking. I’m sorry for your struggle — my answer to everything is Vitamin D and I’m wondering if low levels of that would ever affect that. We all in the upper hemispheres automatically have low levels. I may be totally off-base but that vitamin is my answer to everything and not a week goes by that I don’t read about new things it does wonderfully

        Now, what I DO KNOW- I saw this description for Figs (fresh, I believe, not sure about the dried)– and I wish I could import the photo in here, I will try to, but it said in the market that due to the alkalinity of Figs, it “aids in quitting smoking” — or I guess you could also order some Diamond Water from that ass- fool Asa on Shahs of Sunset

        Ok can’t paste a picture here. But figs apparently help! Best of luck to you.

        • SC Girl says:

          Chismosa……I know my mother brought up the vitamin D also. I always pay attention when I here something twice. I did order some good multi vitamins and they are shipped.
          I have also started some SAMe last night.

          The fig thing is totally random, LOL. I will have to investigate.

          • Just want to quickly add to handle the emotional aspect as well as the physical! Scooting away now…… 🙂 Hugs and more Hugs!!

            Hi SC Girl – I used sunflower seeds cuz they keep my fingers busy and my mind off the cigs. I take vitamin D during the winter while I hibernate and don’t get much sun.

        Hello SC Girl!
        I just recently noticed that we have almost identical screen names, mine is SCGIRL. Isn’t it bizzare that two people that love the same blog could have the same names…anyway I just wanted to let you know that I will be glad to change mine so that it’s not confussing to others when we post comments. I have to ask if you are indeed in South Carolina and what part of SC? I am from Clemson South Carolina. It was nice to officially meet you and chat with you!

    • Jules says:

      please ask your doctor about Welbutin. The generic is cheap and especially cheap at Sam’s club Pharmacy.

      This helps you quit smoking and Depressiong but also helps with the eating. If don’t want a Rx drug get CLA. Can be bought at whole foods for $19 for 100 capsules or look for BOGO free Natures Bounty at Rite Aid 50 to a bottle for $17. Need to take 1Gram 3x a day. Really cuts down on food craving.

      You are amazing to stop smoking. Think of the vacation you can take with the money from now buying cigs.

      • BB says:

        Jules, I know everyone is different, but Welbutrin made my hair fall out! It did curb my appetite though. I had to decide if I wanted to be totally bald or skinnier. I chose to have hair on my head. Of course my daughter took Welbutrin and it did not do that to her. It also curbed her appetite. I had other side effects with the Welbutrin, but my daughter took it with no side effects.

        • Just Wondering in Jersey says:

          Wellbutrin made me break out in hives… everywhere. My doctor was away and the receptionist said it was not an emergency so I couldn’t talk to the covering doctor. She is no longer working there and I suffered for 5 days.

          • BB says:

            Oh, and Celexa made me gain about 40 lbs. and want to sleep all the time. Having a heck of a time getting all that weight off!

            • Just Wondering in Jersey says:

              Prozac turned me into a one sided chipmunk. It made my left parotid gland swell up and throb something awful (and that was during withdrawal.) I decided to get off it because it made me feel like the leaning tower of Pisa. I had to walk with my hand on the wall in order to convince myself I was actually standing up straight. It also made my head feel like it was stuffed with cotton. Now I won’t touch any psych drug ever.

      • Powell says:

        BOGO is this week at Rite Aide. I check them & CVS in the Sunday paper each week.

    Quote from Andy: Going to the reunion was Adrienne’s chance to explain herself and the legal letter she had set to Brandi.

    Can we once and for all put an end to the “there was no letter” argument?

    • T-Rex says:

      Yep and we can confirm what I had heard that the Producers and MZ ANDY were PISSED that she wasn’t going to the reunion. Lawyers for both sides were involved and in the end I believe the HoofMaloof traded in her earnings for the season for her no-show appearance. I would also venture to say that the “Letter” made a prominent appearance at the Reunion

    • Exit4 says:

      Read the link I posted, he never mentions a letter.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I don’t think the letter was part of Andy’s quote but I’m sure NMD will let us know

      • L.A. Chica says:

        From NMD’s blog at the top of this page:

        Meanwhile, Andy Cohen has spoken to E! News about Adrienne Maloof skipping the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion. “She stiffed me. I was not pleased. Also, I feel it was bad for her because, why let six women have the last word on an entire season? I think she should have been there to speak her mind, and she may be surprised with some of the directions the conversations took. Going to the reunion was Adrienne’s chance to explain herself and the legal letter she had set to Brandi. Many of her co-stars turned on her once they found out about the letter — especially since the season prior she had infamously said, “Friends don’t sue friends.”

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          I think NMD forgot to change from italics at the end b/c I cant find Andy saying “Going to the reunion was Adrienne’s chance to explain herself and the legal letter she had set to Brandi”…Andy didnt say that to E!News and no one else is quoting that part of the story. I think that was NMD adding her opinion to the story.

    • kit9 says:

      No, not until Brandi produces it. I had real doubts when she went to the trouble of printing out some emails about Bernie but didn’t bother to bring the lawyer’s letter. One thing that is clear now-there is and never was a lawsuit. That was total bs. And, anyone with a 4th grade reading comprehension level would know that. And, I think Brandi’s claim of 20k in legal bills is suspect. If she pulls out bills, I’ll believe her!

  7. Donna says:

    What a joke! Kim acting inappropiate at Paris’ party. LOL Paris was no angel, anyone remember her sex tape?

    • jezzibel says:

      if there was a topless male go-go dancer it wasn’t a family friendly event to begin with.

    • Catseye says:

      I read somewhere that she was using the “mixed-up her pills” (again) excuse, about her ridiculous behavior.

      • T-Rex says:

        I guess when she finally OD’s from all these pills she is mixing, her family will then finally pay attention as to what she has been prescribed by her docs with a lawsuit for malpractice. Seriously if anyone from their family reads here(we know you do) you need to seriously go with her to her docs and find out what the heck they are prescribing an alcoholic in the first place. She is OVER medicated and can do some serious harm to herself with the pills, more than alcohol. When an “addict” mixes up their medication on a regular basis they are going to probably eventually take one too many pills and wind up in the ER or the morgue. She is an addict and has just traded alcohol for pills, this is a story that may wind up with a very unhappy ending.

        • Vegas Chick says:

          She’s definitely on anti-depressants but she also suffers from anxiety/panic attacks so I think the underlying problem stems from her overuse of Xanax or Ativan, and she may be combining it with something else.

    • This is a sad and frustrating situation. Frustrating for all those around Kim, but sad for her…because some people just can not let go of the addiction. I had a friend who was a severe alcoholic. She was wealthy, so she went to the top rehab center in the country….multiple times. I picked her up from the airport one of those times….and she had had drinks on the plane…straight out of rehab. She went at least 5 times that I know of, yet never kicked the addiction. For whatever reason, she did not have it in her. When I let go of the friendship years ago, she was still drinking and likely is still today. She was such a child at times, just like Kim.

      I do not have a good feeling about this for Kim. But I hope and pray something gets to her so she sticks to sobriety.

      • T-Rex says:

        We had a family friend that died from pills which is why I am posting for someone to get Kim help! My parent’s friend had some alcohol issues and went to SEVERAL doctors, didn’t tell each doctor what he had been prescribed so they were all prescribing something different. On the eve of his 50th birthday he OD’d on the pills. No one was sure if it was suicide, but my mother believes he may have just mixed up his pills one too many times and taken too many because he couldn’t remember what he had taken. If didn’t look suicide since he had several bottles of pills that still had pills in them, most suicide victims empty out as many pills as possible. This was about the time my mother was seeing issues with my Gramps and took his whole bag of pills to one doctor to sort out his meds due to the wakeup call with our friends death.

        • Oh I agree with you T-Rex about family members taking a stand with doctors and monitoring pills, and doing anything they can to help the addict. But…..if the addict is not going to do what THEY need to do to hold onto their sobriety, no matter what those around them do, it won’t work. No matter how many times Kim goes to rehab, or family supports her and pills are taken away and monitored….the addict will find a way to get what they want to support the addiction. Unless she has someone following her around 24/7 and going everywhere with her, she will find what she wants. It is the addicts single and sole purpose in life, to feed that addiction. Kim does not appear to me to be someone who WANTS to embrace sobriety. She is only doing it because people are telling her she should, not because SHE really wants it. Until she wants to be sober more than she wants drugs or alcohol, she will not kick it.

          • mar drag.. OH HOW I AGREE WITH YOU…
            my brother was an addict for 30 yrs…and it wasnt until the family said enough..and cut him off…. he needed to be in the gutter…. and then he finally WANTED to be clean and sober…. he did it for himself FIRST.. others second….
            Kim has to want this for herself and I think it was really SELFISH of Bravo and vyle kyle to allow her to come back to hws so soon after her rehab…. they have made a mockery of this dire situation and the need to feed the viewing public takes precedent over her health… vyle kyle needs to stop feeding the masses….

            hugs and peace
            diva

            • Sorry about your brother Diva….and I so agree about Kyle & Bravo. They should have never put Kim in this position. I detest Bravo for doing these kinds of things. And Kyle adding to it. Just for a TV show and ratings. SMH.

              Hugs & peace to you too dear lady!

          • pat says:

            MarDrag I completely agree, it’s an impossible situation for friends and family, because there is just no convincing an addict, if they don’t want to give up their habit. I don’t know why Kyle is on camera with Kim, defending the mixed up pills story. But beyond that I do sympathize with her situation to a degree. Kim is incredibly stubborn. It’s sad & scary. She needs to not be on a reality show. 😦

            • Quite passive aggressive of Kyle….but I agree that it is an impossible situation for family members of a stubborn addict. They both need to get off the show and handle their issues. :/

            • kit9 says:

              Kyle was clearly skeptical-as she clearly said in her TH-but trying to be supportive. She said to Kim in the store, ‘I want to believe you’. That’s one of the many things addicts lay on their family and friends, guilt. They spend years giving you every reason to doubt everything they say but you end up guilt ridden for not trusting them…thinking in the back of your mind…that MAYBE they are telling the truth this time and terrified what calling them a liar will do to their struggling sobriety.

          • iceNfire says:

            I stated on a previous blog that Kim needs a nanny and after seeing Brand wiping Kim’s face in Paris I’m convinced that Kim wants a nanny or atleast the attention of .someone/anyone. Kim is a very lonely person and the only way she knows how to get attention is by using alcohol/drugs. imo she should just be left alone, maybe she will figure out a positive way to gain the attention she seeks or amybe she will die. She said it herself in last weeks episode “I know I’m going to die” This wasn’t a cry for help it was a statement. Sorry for being so harsh about this but we do not live forever and if your life is cause emotional pain/harm to others…. again, sry I know this is harsh

            • Powell says:

              I hope she doesn’t die cause her kids need her.

            • T-Rex says:

              Ice this is exactly what I was thinking, she is “mixing” her meds to see what kind of “high” she can get from them, this is SO dangerous and that coupled with the fact she did not really goto rehab of her own free will, she did so to stay on the show. She hasn’t learned why she self-medicates only that alcohol is bad, but legal drugs are good because the Doctors keep giving them to her! She is the kind of person that doesn’t know what or why she is taking the meds only that the doctors gave them to her and on the bottle is how to take them. She needs a caregiver and with all the dough between her sisters just hire a “helper” for her

              • iceNfire says:

                Yes, I took my sister to rehab twice and each of her daughters took her once for a total of four times but each time she went was only to appease us, she never went for the good and well being of herself. imo – a caregiver is exactly what she needs and her family needs to back off and let her bitch and complain and ignore the guilt trip she will lay on them i.e. “I know I’m going to die” Again, I know this sounds harsh but I’ve been there and harsh is what she needs. – imo

                • pat says:

                  A nanny-type care giver is a great idea for Kim. She would probably be receptive to that, too. It looked like she might have one or two people working at her house. Whether or not anyone lives in, I dunno. If she can’t afford it, her sisters can. She probably would still find a way to get her extra “meds” tho. Addicts are crafty that way.

        • AZGirl says:

          Kim needs to get away from that family of hers.

          • Powell says:

            She totally does. Especially Kyle because she smothers Kim w/everything. If Kim doesn’t come to dinner or a party Kyle is hounding her why she can’t or didn’t come.

            • Kim needs Kristen’s book: GUTS!

              • Powell says:

                Oh gosh Diana. Please tweet that to Kim. She may not respond but maybe she’ll look into it. Great idea. 🙂

            • kit9 says:

              Alcoholics drink because they want to drink and nobody else is responsible. I completely understand Kyle, going all the way back to S1, tried to keep Kim involved with the family functions and was always trying to get Kim to move closer to her family-alcoholics LOVE to be isolated. They love waking up and spending the day with their best friend,Vodka, and hate anyone that intrudes on that. Kyle isn’t hounding her because she gives a rat’s about Kim missing a b-day party, she’s trying to keep her from holing up and drinking and questioning Kim’s excuses to determine it they are credible because if she’s lying about why she can’t come, it’s likely she’s using. That’s the thought process of an addict’s family/friends. Kyle is where I was about 5 years ago-she still thinks she can help Kim when the sad truth is-she can’t.

      • kit9 says:

        Wow, I have a very similar story with my sister. I paid out of pocket for her to go to rehab and after 2 months, and all her talk of commitment to sobriety and heartfelt apologies, she was to go to the airport to come home. Turns out she left the rehab facility in a cab and drove directly to a liquor store then holed up in a hotel. She terrorized us by not letting anyone know where she was, leaving me to spend hours on the phone, calling every hotel in the city, desperately trying to find her before she drank herself to death. I really worry Kim’s story will end badly.

          That’s horrible Kit9. So sorry about your sister and sorry she hurt you like that.

    Survivor was epic. We knew that Brandon was going to have a melt down based on the previews, but this was nothing that we could of imagined.

    If you go on ew.com, there is a Q&A between Jeff Probst & writer Dalton Ross who always covers Survivor. Dalton brought into question Brandon’s stability. This guy was scary fragile during his first Survivor.

    My son and I watched with our mouths open. We could not believe what we were watching. Jeff Probst really did keep Brandon in check with the shoulder massage.

    Just crazy crazy.

    • T-Rex says:

      It was so funny because I was going to watch American Idol I haven’t been following but now that they were down to the Final 10, made it to the first commerical switched over to Survivor and never went back it was so interesting watching this complete and major meltdown. As I posted earlier I was shocked and dismayed that Brandon had won a coveted spot back on the show because if it hadn’t been for a couple of players last time he was on the show he would have had a similar meltdown in my opinion. He does not have what it takes to be in the Survivor environment and I am SO GLAD that he is gone gone gone!

    • TexasTart says:

      Brandon does chemical disposal for a living. I would not expect everyone to know the types of toxic that comes out of manufacturing in some areas near Houston…but IMO it’s no wonder the boy is not right.

      Thanks for the recap, MTH!

      • melthehound says:

        You’re welcome TT 😀 I was going to mention what he does for a living but figured I should stop with what I had.

  10. chismosa says:

    I don’t watch Beverly Hills I’m probably the only Bravo watcher that doesn’t watch that show – but I’m not sure if anyone else saw on Wendy that Bravo was FURIOUS with Adrienne because she went through all these legal things in order to have Bravo black out/edit out the “BIG SECRET” (which Wendy said was the surrogacy but haven’t you all said its not?)– Only to MONTHS later, openly discuss the topic with Life & Style or whatever magazine. So that is why Bravo was angry and she was fired.
    That’s what Wendy said, just relaying it !

    • T-Rex says:

      See this does prove what we have heard HoofMaloof brought legal things against Brandi and Bravo, and yes she was fired for that and for NOSHOW at the Reunion, an event she was “contracturally” obligated to attend. When WackJack no showed at NJ I think Andy was more relieved than upset. They wanted the HoofMaloof at this Reunion to defend her legal actions and to probably get her on all the lying she and Paul did throughout the season regarding their Separation and Divorce.

      • pat says:

        I don’t recall ever hearing Andy say so much about a housewife, current or former. Not even JZ. He’s usually pretty diplomatic & tight-lipped. Bravo is clearly p.o.’d at Adrienne Mahoof, big time.

        • Kansas Girl says:

          I noticed that too. His statement goes much further to show what he thinks than I can ever remember him saying.

        • T-Rex says:

          He may also be warning the HoofMaloof ahead of time that she should have been there to defend her actions or to call others out on their actions, because I have a feeling she does not come across well at the Reuion at all.

          • Powell says:

            You know what? Bravo/NBC love Andy & other networks are looking at what Adrienne has done so good luck to her in the future if she thinks of getting another major network gig because they don’t like going head to head w/a personality’s lawyer to block them from putting something on tv.

        • iceNfire says:

          If the lawsuit involved Bravo wouldn’t Dandy have to address it on reunion? Maybe Adri wasn’t invited to reunion and the story that she refused to show up is just spin on Bravo’s part?

          • iceNfire says:

            Where’s the delete button? I want to take this nonsense back

          • T-Rex says:

            Oh no, it will come up, that Bravo’s lawyers were desperately trying to make her show up to the Reunion, they most certainly wanted her there, she would be like “chum” for the sharks, Bravo loves that crap. They threatened her with breech of contract and that she would be immediately fired and that she would not be paid for the season, her lawyers tried to argue that the “gag order”(which is from HoofMaloof’s camp not Pauls and could easily been dealth with), prevented her from attending. From what I understand they only get a small portion “up front” with the bulk of the salary paid out after the Reunion, so good thing she doesn’t need the money cause she isn’t getting anymore from Bravo.

            • Jill...no not That Jill says:

              Just for shits and giggles I would love to see what the HWs contract actually say-I’m sure it’s very interesting!!

              • T-Rex says:

                Me too! They all must get some sort of residuals from their time on the show, even after firing and have some pretty iron clad terms in there because not a single HW contract has even been “leaked” to the press. Yeah bits and pieces, but not a full fledged typed up full contract.

      • realhousewifeva says:

        I think with Wacky Jacky they gave her a pass because of her son, and also I believe they brought in medical/psychiatric authorities that advised Jaqueline to not attend due to added stress. Alexis Bellino said once that you can get out of taping the reunion with a medical excuse.
        I also agree Bravo was relieved Jaqueline didn’t attend b/c she was a loose cannon who may have revealed details of Season 4 which has filmed but wasn’t aired yet.

        This entire season of BH revolved around Adrienne, so for her to no show was major. I bet they would have invited Camille and Marisa had they known Adrienne wouldn’t come.

        • mrs peabody says:

          I don’t doubt they knew she probably would not show for the reunion but really don’t know what purpose Camille and Marisa would have served showing, neither were that involved in the storyline. Camille’s only standout was the scene in LV where she confronted Lisa about the ownership of the restaurant and Marisa’s was complaining about only being able to sleep with her husband. I actually think she’s lucky he sleeps with her, if I were him I would have cut her off a long time ago for her comments.

  11. Vegas Chick says:

    Apparently, HW lawsuits are flying left and right. Heather Thompson is suing Spanx and it doesn’t sound like a storyline either because it made Forbes and not a rag like Reality Tea. Gee, I wonder if JillZ is feeling left out, lol.

  12. Good Morning and Happy Thursday! I know most of you will like this…but 87 degrees here today. 😦 Not. Ready. Spring Equinox is not even until next week. But, I hope you are all happy with your weather today! 🙂

    Thanks for the blog NMD, Amy and MTH. Wow on the Survivor meltdown. It sounds like its an interesting season. Great recap of it MTH! Amy, I caught the last few minutes of RZP when I was channel surfing and was surprised. I don’t care for her so I don’t watch the show, but it wasn’t too bad. And her son…..what a cutie pie! Loved your recap.

    NMD….I hope you are still enjoying your vacation and are full of sun, fun and margaritas! You are the best!!

    I am not surprised that Kandi sued Kim, but why did she wait so long? Contracts maybe? As I said above, I giggled out loud at Brielle writing the song. That was a terrible insult to Kandi tho, and all the work she did. Shameful.

    Have a great Thursday everybody! Countdown to the weekend begins! 😀

    New post, “Your Beautiful Self”, + all the goodies is up at my place. Enjoy!

    • thedesigndiva2 says:

      If memory serves me correctly…brielle did write the rough first version of the song but it was more country and not quite finished…that’s when kandi got involved and she then finished the rough edges …. it does strike me as convenient that now kandi is suing …. wonder what the statute of limitations is in regards to this…. biz must be slow for the fakedra and she prob put the bug in kandis bonnet…ya know..being that big old entertainment lawyer and all… shady mcshady she is….

      • Hi Diva…..I actually did not know that about Brielle. I stand corrected then…thanks! However….the song was what it was because of Kandi. I also think the timing is suspect…and suspect of Bravo, since their stance is so anti-legal stuff between the castmates. Did they sign off on this as a story line? They just keep getting lower and lower in the mud.

        Hope you are doing well today! HUGS!

        • iceNfire says:

          Doesn’t Bravo get a 10% cut of anything HW’s “invent” on the show? Lawsuits involving Bravo makes no sense to me. Bravo must be up to their eyeballs in legal fees.

          • trudie says:

            I have read on this blog that Bravo gets a cut of housewives ventures, but I don’t know what the source of that is. Do we know for sure they get a cut?

      • trudie says:

        I thought it was Brielle’s “voice teacher” who wrote the song.

        • trudie..yes you are correct..see my memory does fail me..it was brielles piano teacher who wrote the song…and it was a dude… lol lol

        What I don’t get is her hiring Phaedra. I don’t think that’s a good idea.

    • chismosa says:

      I’m hoping the reason that Kandi is doing it now is because Bravo gave her the go-ahead to forge against Kim, maybe because the Trashbox is out of the Atlanta show and hopefully her show will suffer and not do well and then be cancelled. Praying 🙏🙏
      Lol

    Not to split hairs, but the article directly from E Online is a bit different then what you wrote (I double checked b/c I saw it on E yesterday and it didn’t match). So, here’s the link.

  15. pat says:

    Great blogs, thx!! Amy, my favorite quote from your Rachel Zoe Project blog: “She puts on a fur hat to help herself think.” I haven’t seen that episode yet, but I can just see that. 🙂 Rodger is such an effeminate man, it gets on my nerves, but he’s a perfect match for Rachel.

    • WindyCityWondering says:

      I like Rachel as a stylist but not so much as a designer. She may know fashion trends but she does not understand marketing to retail consumers. IMHO, without Skyler this season would be unwatchable.

      • Powell says:

        WCW have you looked at her clothes? Some are very very nice. Nordstrom & I think Saks. I’ve seen them at Nordstrom. Check them on the website. Some nice shoes & bags also. Some of her stuff I don’t like. You can tell its her style though because its the way she dresses. Really wide leg pants, huge platform heels. Those I don’t like. It’s funny she can’t understand why Nordstrom & other retailers don’t want the maxi-dresses. That’s because they were 2 seasons ago Rachel. LOL. Retailers probably had too many maxis that they had to sell off to other store like Marshalls & TJ Maxx or Ramona. 🙂

    • chismosa says:

      If RoD-ger doesn’t do something with that hair of his I just will break my tv. I can’t take it!!
      The son is ADORABLE but his hair gives him a femme look and I know it’s very in and chic to have longer hair on boys but he needs a trim.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        The long hair trend for little boys is not my thing at all!! Especially when the put a clip in the hair!!!
        Rodgers hair looks so silly-he is trying to hard to be hip but he looks like a mess!!!

      • Powell says:

        chismosa please don’t break your tv. 🙂 But I getcha. And the beard. I like him w/short hair & clean shaving but if he’s going to wear a beard have it shaped up. Their hairstylist comes to their house so what’s he doing? I think it’s great he’s the President but I was wondering about his biz. He had a partner. I guess they parted ways so that he could work w/Rachel fulltime. The Drybar opened in NY in Jan. She was on GMA talking about it. And they were doing finishing touches when she was on GMA.

        It’s funny because remember when Taylor worked for Rachel they discussed a lot of what Rachel is doing now & Rachel was going to have Taylor be a big part of it.

    • HuskerHuny says:

      I watch Rachael Zoe to see fashion. But what I see is uber drama from her and those around her. I get enough drama in my everyday life but not so much fashion (as I sit here in my black shorts, orange long-sleeved shirt from a basketball tournament nine years ago and Nevada tennis shoes). Rodger and Skylar are cute. Would love to see Skylar in a t-shirt with a Disney character or something child-like on it. He can dress like an adult when he gets older. Trim the hair already Rodger. But as a couple, he and Rachael seem to be a rather good match, especially after 21 years. Oops – I just cursed them!

      • BB says:

        I loved watching Rachel Zoe dressing the stars for the awards and red carpet events and the photo shoots. Seems like it’s more about Rachel, Roger, her assistant now and not so much the fashions. But to be fair I haven’t watched this season at all. Can’t take watching Rachel and her assistant talk to each other.

        • iceNfire says:

          I don’t watch either. I find RZ very unlikable

          • kit9 says:

            The way she talks! It drives me insane, her dopey expressions and Valley Girlisms but love the fashions..and gotta say her son is one of the cutest babies I’ve ever seen. Gorgeous!

      • lizzle says:

        I have the opposite perspective. As I was watching today, I thought how nice it is not to have drama in a reality show. When she hugged Andy and ignored Brad in the first episode, there was not even the slightest mention or hint of what is going on with Rachel and Brad. The drama is deadlines and the stresses of becoming very big, very fast in a business sense. And I see so much fashion in her show. It is all about fashion and looks. Her show is about what goes on in her world as a designer and stylist. She cannot survive without her stylist team and other assistants. She is a new designer and I think what she learned in the last episode is that it doesn’t matter what you like to wear… if the boutiques and department stores don’t think it will sell… it doesn’t get bought. I learn so much about fashion and the business of fashion. Rachel is a tv personality that not everyone likes. I get that, so I understand why we all can have many perspectives on the show. I enjoy the styling part the most. She styled a video for the pop duo Karmin in the last episode, which was the highlight for me. And honestly… me watching and talking about Rachel Zoe is hilarious… I have ZERO fashion sense. Maybe I should try harder since I clearly enjoy watching fashion shows.

        • Powell says:

          That’s one thing I don’t like that Rachel does. If she doesn’t want assistants to leave her then she nerds to stop hiring ones that have ambitions to become a stylist. That’s not fair or right. Brad left and said he wantrd to take a break. He took a short break then started his own thing. He’s become a very successful stylist and fashion stylist to Kate Spade. Rachel should be happy because he’s become successful from what he learned from her. Her problem is she hires people for the wrong reason. Last season she hired Jeremiah because he was cute & could make her laugh. Now he’s gone.

          • lizzle says:

            I like Brad too! The reason I like the show is because she doesn’t talk about Jeremiah or Brad in the show… therefore all that stuff isn’t a part of the show anymore. It’s all about the business, fashion, her relationship and the kid. I understand that people don’t like her and can’t separate the stuff that happened off the show with what is happening on the show… I do the same thing with the housewives!

          • pat says:

            ITA. I know she thinks she opened Brad up to a world of connections, trained him, etc. But how would she feel if she was in Brad’s position. Was she self-employed her entire career? Or did someone give her a hand up at some point in the early days? Brad was really talented, and itching to do his own thing creatively. She should be able to relate to that. From the quotes I read from Brad, it sounded like he handled his part of the split as professionally as possible.

      • Powell says:

        Yeah let Slylar dress like a toddler. Did you hear Rachel say last week that she bought Skylar a Burberry raincoat? WTH? I don’t care if they can afford it & Burberry should not even make it in my opinion. Skylar will wear it a handful of times. He’s growin & the season will also pass him by. He doesn’t need that.

        • HuskerHuny says:

          She dresses Skylar in Burberry because it’s ‘maj.’ How tired are you of that word? Totally agree Powell, he’ll wear it two or three times or the season will go by and poof! He’ll outgrow it and never wear it again. Although they can afford it, it seems quite wasteful to me. Buy the kid a coat from JCP and then she could have more money for her chevron floor!

  16. T-Rex says:

    To digress, I haven’t been watching the Jodi Arias trial but just getting into perpesctive that in the span of some 62 seconds she took a pic of her victim in the shower alive and then 62 second later he is bloodied shot and stabbed, yet she claims she had to get a gun from a closet and then a knife magically appeared for her to stab him, and oh wait he also was the one to start the fight. UHM, wow how come she hasn’t made an olympic team, for her speed, adeptness and agility, and looks like she went to Hogwarts too at some point since the “sorting” hat must have appeared to bring her the magic dagger in her time of need. UGH! I hope this person spends the rest of her days behind prison gates so no other family will have to lose a loved one to this monster. Because if she gets out, she will most certainly do this again, she has ZERO remorse for what she has done.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Well she can’t explain anything that happened b/c after she shot him a FOG came over her and she lost her damn memory!!! The knife apparently just flew into her hands but she can’t be sure b/c of that damn FOG!!! I want to smack the fog outta her!!!

      • Powell says:

        You didn’t know she was Jeannie from I Dream of Jeannie. She just blinked and the knife was in her hand.

        And oh, the knife ended up in the dishwasher but she doesn’t know if she put it there after he was stabbed or if she’s remembering some other time she used the dishwasher. Ughhhh. A liar.

    • Exit4 says:

      Not following it closely either, but I do read the articles, and my God she is a piece of work. I hate to say it because the poor guy is dead, but if The ex thought with the head on his shoulders as opposed to the one behind the zipper….maybe he’d be alive today. You know she’s nuts,don’t let her in your house, change the locks, move if you have to, talk to the police. Don’t invite her in for a bootycall. Just cut her off. Men are dumb. However, he obviously didn’t deserve his fate.

      • pat says:

        She admitted she used to let herself into his house… Thru the doggy door. RED FLAG!
        He definitely was thinking with the wrong body part, but wow, did she (and her lawyers) ever drag his memory through the gutter in this trial.

        • kit9 says:

          Wah? Doggy door?! Omg, that’s insane! How did I miss that? I did come into the trial only after she’d taken the stand. Was that testified to in court or something his friends said?

      • Powell says:

        You are so right. She was obsessed w/him. She stalked him on a couple of dates. The 2 ladies testified to it. A friend has said she pulled a Brandi & slashed his tire(s). He should have has a protective order against her but he wanted her for sex when he wanted her.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Didn’t he find her hiding in his closet after he came home from a date? She is one sick bit*h!!!

        • Exit4 says:

          As it often happens, the s-e-x wasn’t worth it. Even if you don’t end up dead. A porn movie, some lotion and a washcloth- not as fun, but it doesn’t hurt. 😉

          But then again, what guy (or girl too-it applies, except in an abuse situation), actually thinks someone will kill them? Some guys get turned on by psycho behavior-it feeds the ego. Turns them on. You just can’t be too careful I guess.

          • Powell says:

            You sure can’t. He told friends that she stalked him so I don’t know what he thought that was when we have seen in the media year after year what stalkers do to their victims.

    • Powell says:

      And when he tackled her like a linebacker in the bathroom, she was on the floor, wrestled herself away from him & instead of turning left, running down the stairs & out the door to safety & where a naked Travis is not going to come after her she turns right, goes to the bedroom, gets in the closet & oh yeah he has a gun, steps on a shelf of his immaculate closet, disturbs nothing & gets the gun that she doesn’t know if its loaded or not to point at Travis to make him stop coming after her, they get back in the bathroom & she shoots him & oh she didn’t know she shot him, then Travis is stabbed & oh she doesn’t know where the knife came from cause she was in a fog & can’t remember what happened, then she leaves the house & is driving but oh really doesn’t remember where she was cause she was in a fog but managed to throw away the rope & gun.

      She has told so many dang lies that the jury asked her over 300 questions. They wanted to see her wiggle out of those lies. All I can say is the prosecutor must be taking a long vaca after this is over. I don’t know who lies better. Jodi or Casey Anthony.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Driving in a fog is dangerous I bet!!! Funny how the fog lifted right after she threw the gun out the window!!!

        • T-Rex says:

          Oh and that fog told her there were pictures so she better throw that in the wash too to get rid of the evidence. That’s some mighty potent fog, definitely came from Hogwarts!

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            She learned all sorts of magic at Hogwarts…how to get a knife to fly into her hands…how to fly up to a shelf in the closet…how to drive through a fog….

        • Powell says:

          Right.

          • designernailsdiana says:

            I’ve been obsessed with this trial. How about her suddenly adding that the gun had a holster then it was gone then the gun was loaded then not loaded then loaded. No record whatsoever of Travis ever buying or owning a gun. This jury is SMART, they are listening and I doubt we get another “casey anthony” jury decision. I think all trials should have jury questions. I did like how Juan (prosecutor) asked how she put gas in her car. The fog magically lifted to let her know she needed gas in her car too.

            • Powell says:

              WTH? And where are the box of bullets? Like Mike the ex-cop said you buy a box of bullets, not seven. No holster found, no bullets found. And Travis’ friend said if Travis had a gun it would have been on his insurance and Travis would have told him he bought a gun because he would have wanted to show it off. I hope someday someone finds that gun & they track the serial no back to Jodi’s GF.

              • Rebecca says:

                She lied about every single detail so I don’t believe she tossed the gun in the desert. She has it hidden somewhere to use as future leverage.

                If you were a psycho nympho, where would you stash a gun? Come on ladies….. Let’s put our heads together and find it!

          • kit9 says:

            Omg, I’m cracking up over all the fog comments. lol

      • realhousewifeva says:

        She also deleted dozens of pictures, attempted to clean up evidence of her being at the house and did some laundry in that fog of hers.

        I’m so sick of watching her smug attitude.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Who knew so many things could be done in a fog?
          I’m sick of her attitude too-she thinks she has this whole thing beat!!!

        • Powell says:

          She had a carpet cleaner. I guess she was in a zombie like state when she was attempting to clean the carpet.

    • trudie says:

      Along with coffee, I am addicted to this trial. But, I have not watched from the beginning. Question: When she got Travis in the shower after she mutilated him, did she wash him? One of the commentators a couple of weeks ago said something about her washing him to make him “clean” for her.

      • realhousewifeva says:

        I think she turned the shower on to wash off evidence. She’s claiming to have no memory of what happened after she shot him.

        • kit9 says:

          That’s exactly what she did. She cut her own hands in the stabbing and she needed to wash her blood and her other bodily fluids and hair off him before she left.

        • trudie says:

          yeah. Blah, blah, blah. She scares me.

      • kit9 says:

        If you want to see the earlier testimony, go to youtube. People are posting the trial daily.

      And, keep in mind that the 29 stabs alone take up nearly half that 62 seconds. And, that’s if they only took a sec. each to inflict.

  17. Powell says:

    Just saw the BEA is on The Style Network & RHOC in on Bravo for anyone who wants to watch.

    • JumpTheShark says:

      Just watched BEA trip to Cabo…amazed that they lasted as long as they did. IMO, B is a black hole of narcissism.

    I’m sure Guilanna Rancic will be in trouble with Brandi fans for this….but she did call Brandi “classy”

    • Exit4 says:

      “Classy” with a huge side of sarcasm! Lol. I’m sure Brandi’s twitter followers are slamming them both! They’re like adults in the bodies of the nasty twitter Beiber and Chris brown fans. Doesn’t reflect we’ll…but she can’t control the fans so ill give her the benefit of the doubt.

      I’m sure Brandi is foaming at the mouth because its more attention for her, but I don’t think she’s wise enough to recognize that they don’t care and only brought it up to make fun of her.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        A huge serving of sarcasm!!! I didn’t mind it!!

      • iceNfire says:

        GR didn’t even quote what Brandi actually said. I dont like GR or CH…I’m not liking many people today, maybe I should go hang out with my cows and chickens on Farmville today

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          She did say “suck it”

        • pat says:

          I don’t care for GR or CH, either. Actually, E! in general pretty much sucks. Ryan Seacrest, the Kardashians, Chelsea, Guillana and Bill (zzzzzzz)…The only show kinda worth watching is The Soup. The rest of them can suck it. 🙂

      • lillybee says:

        Nothing like a nice feud.

    • pat says:

      I tried to watch but that interview was like watching paint dry. Didn’t hear her say anything about B so it must have been further in. Guilanna needs a hamburger.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        It was only about 4 minutes long-they talk about Brandi right at the end.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          Yeah….then they said they were going to take a break while Gulianna told Chelsea about the beef she and Brandi had with each other; Chelsea promised to come back with a zinger…then nothing…..show was over.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      LOL Brandi and Chelsea are basically on the same level of “classy”.

  19. Exit4 says:

    Off topic but I had to crack up while getting the mail. We bought a fixer upper (ie not maintained great in some aspects, dated interior, but good bones) for a rock bottom price in a great neighborhood almost 6 years ago. It was “that house” that drives the neighbors insane! We are in the home stretch of improvements (yay!) but one thing left is the driveway. we are on a hill, and its really a wreck, just shearing away. It wasn’t this bad when we moved in, but we knew it would just get worse and it has. This spring we are going to finally replace it all.

    What cracks me up is almost every day, especially now that its getting warmer, we get flyers in the mailbox, on the mailbox, on the door from companies that do that type of work. Well, today whoever dropped it at the box actually circled driveway, like 6 times with arrows! Do they not think we notice it? Do they think we are unaware that it looks terrible? It’s just funny. Same thing when we tore up the landscaping a few years ago. One guy actually got out of his truck and basically gave me an estimate! I appreciate it because they are working hard and soliciting business which is a good thing, it just makes me giggle! It’s the little things.

    Sometimes though, like today with the circles and arrows I have to say what I say to my 5 year old “thank you captain obvious!”

    • AZGirl says:

      Exit that is so funny. What I don’t understand is my neighbors on both sides yards look like sh%t. One has dead trees that are overgrown and every time the wind blows all the leaves are in my driveway. Our front and back yards are immaculate. Who gets the solicitors and flyers for landscaping? WE DO. All the time. I guess they figure it is easy working our yard for money than the neighbors who really need help.

      • Exit4 says:

        Sneak over to the neighbors houses in the middle of the night and put the flyers in their mailboxes! Maybe they’ll take the hint! Lol.

        • AZGirl says:

          We have a HOA which should be on this. I had a small hibiscus die due to frost and got a letter to replace it about one week after it died. Where is the HOA now? Jeez. It is going to be in the 90’s this weekend and that yard is dry timber. If someone should toss a cigarette the whole house is going up in flames.

          • lillybee says:

            My mom’s florida neighbors started complaining about a two year old car parked in her driveway a few months after my dad died. He was the only driver.

    • melthehound says:

      Those would be the first people off of my short list. Good luck finishing the renovation though..

      • Exit4 says:

        Thanks! I’m happy, but a little bit sad because I love projects! I lived in a condo for 9 years prior as a young single girl and spent 4+ years redoing everything. An easier task because it was all interior cosmetic stuff. It paid off, since I was married with a baby when I sold it, in a still hot market-and made a nice profit, then bought this project. I spent all of 2011 helping my mom (okay taking over) when she demolished a rebuilt the shore house. That was a dream….since I’m a weird girl who can spend HOURS in Home Depot. I go to furniture stores for fun. The tile store excites me more than Neimans. I’m also weirdly handy and ive done a lot myself. Less so with kids, but as much as I can. Drives my husband nuts, although between the 2 of us, we have enough connections and pals that we’ve gotten a lot of the work done for us as cash “side jobs”. Except the big stuff obviously.

        Sometimes I question my logic, in the long run it would probably have been cheaper to have bought something new or not as labor intensive, but theres something about an empty canvas that calls my name!

        • melthehound says:

          If that’s weird, then I grew up with it. My mother was a building contractor. She too was far more at home in the home depots than any department store.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          I love home improvement projects-I like knocking down walls and laying tile…all the fun crap! I have to do a back splash in my kitchen and I can’t wait to get started!!

  20. T-Rex says:

    This is just a theory as to why no “friends” of the HW were at the Reunion. Marisa well okay, snorefest but still should have been there since she was at a lot of events, Camillizilla was fired before the Reunion and well while she tried to stir up shite she was a non-factor because she didn’t film a whole lot and couldn’t let her time outside of “events” be filmed, SO my opinion, and it’s opinion only was to make sure that in NO WAY could one LOSERBIOTCHFAYEKR be allowed at the Reunion. Because if VileKyle brought her and there are rumors out there she tried, having no other “friends” there Bravo put their foot down and said HWives ONLY!

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I hope it is HWs only….no husbands and no dogs. (I’m not hating on Giggy but I don’t need to see the dog every second).

      • BB says:

        Awwww come on now, Jill. The Gigster isn’t even a distraction. All he does is sit there looking cute, like a fashion accessory.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Oh BB-Im over the dog….he is a cute little thing but Im over it. Maybe Lisa can get Giggy his own show?

          • BB says:

            If Andy didn’t make such a fuss over him, I’d hardly notice him at all.

            • Exit4 says:

              He officiated his wedding to Dina’s cat. There’s a problem there! 😉

              The best part about giggly is Andy’s love for him drove “ginger” zarin so insane she stalked him on twitter. Begged for a follow. Even had a custom portrait done. Money can’t buy you fans, even if you’re a household pet!

              • T-Rex says:

                OMG Andy better worry if Ginger winds up in his shower with a camera as this scenario doesn’t turn out well when stalkers are involved, 😉

            • Jill...no not That Jill says:

              You think you are cute with your little avitar change BB!!!! (I was a bit slow to notice) Are you trying to force that little pooch on me??

            • Powell says:

              Giggy is a part of who Lisa & Ken are so its not a big deal to me. He’s cute little dog that is well trained & is like a stuffed animal. I think that’s one reason why Adrienne was jealous of Giggy because Jackpot was not just sitting there being cute. He was all over the house. A & P didn’t take time w/Jackpot.

            • realhousewifeva says:

              I thought it was so cute when he walked into the hotel room in Paris and Kyle was totally shocked, lol

          • melthehound says:

            Ha! 😆

      • T-Rex says:

        I am with you, no husbands and yes I love the Gigster too, but good grief no every time you turn around. Going to be interesting if anyone admits to VileKyle trying to bring LoserBiotchFayeKR to the Reunion

        • Exit4 says:

          I hate the reunions. There’s never any resolution. The reunions are actually what Meeks me stop watching b/c when they’re over I never want to see them again. Except jersey. It’s my sickness.

      • realhousewifeva says:

        They taped a segment with Paul

    • iceNfire says:

      Kyle has been trying to get Fayekr on as a full time since season 1 so ofcourse she has hostility towards Yo and Brandi for taking F’s spot. Does anyone remember season 1 reunion when Kyle was the beloved HW and she sat there beaming in all her fabulousness? Ha! She really must be beside herself for falling from the grace of viewers.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      If Rosie and Lauren Manzo can come to NJ reunion, and Marlo could come to ATL reunion, and Kim D also at NJ reunion…then they should have brought Marisa and Camille for a little. I don’t know why but I am interested in hearing from both of them.

  21. Putchka says:

    Can someone give me a link to Arias trial blog site? Don’t want to hijack this blog. Love all you ladies! (and some men)

    • melthehound says:

      You would probably be perfectly fine to discuss it right here (can’t help you with a link).. It seems a hot topic each day when it’s on.

      • Putchka says:

        Mel (Jeff)? Thanx honey. I get a kick out of everyone here, you are certainly a standout, even tho I don’t watch Survivor. I am disabled (seizures, strokes) so don’t have much of a life anymore. So TV is my life until my brain is fixed, ha. I consider this site “home” because of people like you. I come here after reading all the other baloney, nasty sites (I love stupid gossip). Thank you again. You guys are wonderful, Lynne would be proud…

        • Powell says:

          Haha. MTH. Putchka hlntv.com/clusters/Jodi-arias or CNN.com & click the JodiArias picture.

          • Contessa says:

            Putchka, You are not hijakcing, there are a few on here that are doing the trial proud. I decided not to get involved in another trial. I was 24/7 with Casey Anthony, Laci Peterson and the OJ thing. The Casey Anthony trial put me over the edge. Playing the
            I was sexually abused and the baby drowned in the pool card and I think my Dad took care of it was absolute idiocy, and those jurors were nuts. The devil played that card as he probably has some nasty stuff for her to do in this lifetime.

            I am so sorry about your medical issues, but you have gossip, tv and us and I am sure a lot of other good things. XXOO Whatever you need we are here for you!

            • Powell says:

              Contessa did you hear there’s a rumor that Casey is pregnant? Lawyer Cheney that was on her defense & is still her lawyer said something smart but basically saying she’s not.

            • Putchka says:

              Thank you Contessa and Powell. I get involved with this cause in my past I was personally involved with 2 murder cases. Amityville Horror and Jeffrey McDonald. I knew the people involved (the victims). At least those monsters were convicted and are rotting in prison. I hope Arias gets the same fate.

              • Powell says:

                OMG Putchka. Those were both horrific events. Ive seen the movies and several tv shows on both events.

              • melthehound says:

                I really should hit refresh before posting sometimes. That’s crazy. I always thought that movie was horror fiction.

        • melthehound says:

          Putchka, I will echo and plus 10 what Contessa says. Mostly here, even in disagreement, people aren’t at each others’ throats. Just today, reading some of the Survivor recaps online, in the comments, things turn nasty quickly and about the dumbest (IMO) things.

  22. Exit4 says:

    I forgot, I totally understand kandi wanting to get paid for her work. She deserves it, obviously. But on the other hand, she’s won a Grammy, for dignities sake distance yourself from that stupid song!

    Or at the very least ( and she should have known better), friends with Kim or not- put your compensation on the table before you put pen to paper or enter a studio. She waited until after the fact and that screwed her. Sometimes, the people you can trust the LEAST are the ones that are supposed to be your friends.

    Or she figured it would never be a “hit” . Never underestimate the publics poor taste. 🙂

    • Powell says:

      It wasn’t right. Kim should have paid Kandi no doubt. Kandi’s biggest mistake was not putting on her biz woman hat on 1st and draw up her contract & have Ksing before they even started. With that said Kim didn’t make as much as Kim would like people to think she made & I think Kandi should chalk this one up to experience she will never have again & jeep moving. Don’t bother w/Kim,again in biz or friendship. Clearly Kandi was a tool for Kim.

    • princesspindy says:

      I remember the figure of $80.000.00 being thrown around, you could put my name on that song for that kind of cash, IPPHO!!

  23. BB says:

    Brandi’s blog is up at Bravo site.

  24. Powell says:

    I saw on GMA this morn that Heather from NY is in a C&D standoff w/Sarah-Spanx for stealing her patented idea of a camisole that is cotton on the top & bottom and the control panel in the middle. Heather has written a letter to Sarah on the Yummie website asking for Sarah to not use her idea on her Spanx camisole. Sarah has of course said she didn’t steal Yummie’s patented idea. If it’s not solved they will be in court. Very interesting.

    It’s kind of similar to Tory Burch suing her ex who started C Wonder(I love these products. Check them out) because much of the products replicate Tory Burch. The stores look like TB. She’s saying he stole her business plan. They started TB together so he would know what TB was doing. Yikes.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      C Wonder looks exactly like Tory Burch! Even the website, the way they display the items and the items themselves!

      • Powell says:

        You can see why she’s suing the ex. :-). But I love their stuff. More affordable. I haven’t bought anything yet but I will eventually.

        • LavaLady says:

          There was a great article in Vanity Fair a few months about about Tory and her ex and their feud.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Lava-do you remember who was on the cover that month? I have 2 years worth of Vanity Fair on my nook and would like to read that article.

            • LavaLady says:

              I’m thinking someone dressed like Uncle Sam in red white and blue. It was a great article, and definitely within the last few months.

  25. Vegas Chick says:

    I had the TV on for noise, yesterday, and RHOBH reruns were playing. I’m at my desk working away and suddenly tuned in to the amount of times they all use the word “amazing.” (Kyle and Mauricio especially). Pay attention next time; it’s amazing, lol.

  26. shamrockblonde says:

    ooohhhh so much to say….Jeff thanks for the recap!! watching it last night all I could think of was what you would say – Brandon has issues – huge ones – I am a little confused about the meltdown – even before he actually became unhinged, watching him handle that knife was creepy – I was actually surprised that the crew – production – allowed him to trash the food supply – do they get that replaced then? I thought for sure that Probst would appear and remove him immediately – while watching him all I could think was that there were a few sharp objedts within his reach and watching him wind himself up made me nervous for the other teammates – ahh Phillip – he is a kook, no doubt about it, but he was playing the game – strangely, for sure, but playing – up until he mentioned Brandon’s kids – that was either incredibly stupid or deliberately cruel – in his first go round Phillip was just strange and annoying – this time he is both those things, but last night I kept getting a whiff of “too full of myself” itis that is usually seen on 2nd or 3rd seasons of the HW – and that Phillip I do not like one little bit – and Reynold!!!!! when he found that idol I actually yelled at the tv causing the twins to come running in – after seeing what I was watching and my explanation, the first question asked was “where’w pinky”/ ooohhh I don’t like that puffed up asshat Reynold at all – lastly, Probst giving Brandon a shoulder masage – after a bit that started to creep me out….

    as silly as I think the Kandi lawsuit is, I think it would be kind of fun to watch Miss Phadrea actually do her lawyer thing and get owned by lawyers of all people – Kim!!!!

    thanks again for all of the recaps and thanks Diva for those gorgeous pictures – may God bless and keep safe our new Pope, Pope Francis I –

    • melthehound says:

      “too full of myself” itis …. We’ll have to make that a word and use it. This season is definitely full of those types. I don’t think production would let them go without food that was destroyed in that way. If they failed to ration it and ran out a couple days early, I could see them going hungry for a couple days but, not when someone deliberately destroys it. I was fine with Pinky talking until he brought up family and the kids. Funny you mention S2 HWs because all I could think of at that point was Teresa shoving Andy aside to get to Danielle at the reunion for mentioning her fambly. Up until then it was mostly how Pinky sees himself in the game.

      Probst was keeping his hands on Brandon in order to control him. He says in an EW.Com interview (thank you Plainviewsue), that the entire time he was making sure that security was on hand in case things did go physical.

      Reynold is going to be his own downfall in the game. Next week there’s some sort of tribe mixup, I don’t know if it’s the merge or not but, the dynamic is about to change. We’ll see if old alliances remain (the women on One World never gave up on their alliance while, several of the men, did).

      • shamrockblonde says:

        agreed – you are probably – most certainly – right about the food and I agree 100% about Pinky – the second he mentioned Brandon’s kids my tolerance for him went to zero – the thing that bothered me the most though was wondering if it was just him trying to be all tough and a legend in his own mind kind of thing, or was he very much aware of the reaction his words would get and was counting on it – attempting to provoke Brandon into something physical – while he was standing behind the girls mind you – and then be able to brag later that he could have taken him – because him being a bag of wind is one thing – him using that comment to incite violence is something else all together –
        can’t wait to see what the shakeup turns out to be – I’s still mad that he found that dang idol – grrrrr…

  27. iceNfire says:

    Brandi’s blog seemed a little tame to me. The best part of Yo’s gift of shoes to Brandi is that while they are beautiful and Kyle would love to have them her legs/height could never pull them off. Really hoping Brandi wore them to the reunion

    • AZGirl says:

      Kyle would have to strap those shoes all the way up her thigh because she is only 5’2.
      I would LOVE to think Brandi wore those to the reunion.

      • Contessa says:

        Az, I am 5’2 and those would definitely be mid thigh. Only a long legged tall girl can wear those shoes and do them justice. Not my taste or type, as I still like a classic heel, a moderate platform is okay, but those 6 inch things are scary. However due to my knee and surgery next week those high heel days are over. For business purposes I went on Zappos site and bought, black, navy and brown kitten heel pointy pumps to wear to work. I can also wear nice low heeled sandals. I recently moved to a new house and put my higher heeled shoes on the top shelf, I can’t wear them, but I can’t bear to give them away yet – duh! Also saw your notes upthread and have to say I am fortunate as my neighbors are pretty good about their yard. Thank goodness we have pretty good privacy fences. However one neighbor has nothing back there. I tried cleaning and hosing around the pool today and drove me nuts as the various surfaces are uneven. I have concrete patio, bricked area with fireplace, and cool deck around the pool. Need to redo the cool deck and concrete patio (previous owners painted it and it is now peeling). Do you as a fellow arizonian have any suggestions as to what to do with the concrete part – get is scraped, stain it or should we just tile it? Also the brick area is pretty, but it dips? You can look up my email at http://www.lead-gen.us

        • Vegas Chick says:

          Have you thought about skimming the whole thing (including the brick) with a layer of concrete to level it and having it stamped with some design? Having it all the same will bring value to your home plus it will make the space look larger. There are tons of ideas on-line.

          • trudie says:

            We did a stamped concrete driveway last summer and I absolutely love it. Get lots of comments from people. It is beautiful!

            • Powell says:

              I wish we could do that but we can’t in our community. Blacktop driveways up to one area, then concrete to another area. My next house I’m not going to deal w/a community where you have a HOA. I hope I can have acres of land w/no close neighbors right next door. My mom & I laugh all the time that we would love to own about 5-10 acres where our family could build their own homes but they have to live at least an hr walk away. 🙂

        • AZGirl says:

          I am really surprised that Brandi is able to wear those shoes and the ones she wears on the show. Remember she broke her leg last season.
          Love the fact that you have an outside fireplace. Vegas Chick’s post about having the whole area resurfaced and stamped is excellent idea. Affordable and looks great. My house needs so much work it is ridiculous. Cool decking needs resurfacing but I want to extend it to the patio and add a fireplace. Some day… 🙂 Have you planted flowers yet? I did in pots around the pool area. Pansies are really good this year. Got them at Lowes.

  28. designernailsdiana says:

    I think next season of Survivor should be all about HW’s. Can you imagine putting ousted HW’s together on an island with remaining HW’s? Picture JZ, Bethenny, Alex, Sheree, Jo, Lauri, Cat on one team against Tre, Ramona, Tamra, Kenya, Ana, Brandi and Aviva. They’re all on an island having to fend for themselves and do challenges like starting a fire without breaking a nail or wrestling to get a coconut into a goal. I’m laughing just picturing that show.

    • shamrockblonde says:

      LOLOLOLOL!!!! now THAT would be funny – one sighting of a rat, or the bugs – or heaven forbid, a downpour that ruins their hair, not to mention how they would cope with makeup!! and that’s not even getting to a challenge!!!

      those images will keep me giggling the rest of the afternoon!!! –

    • melthehound says:

      Hehe 😆

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Imagine being on Ramona’s tribe?? I would be begging Probst to give her some Pinot!!
      I’m trying to think of one HW who could start a fire and build a shelter and I can’t think of one….none of them seem to be the outdoor types!!!

    • pat says:

      TOO funny!!! Most of them would really need to pack on some pounds before they got started so they wouldn’t wither away in the first week.

    • princesspindy says:

      OMG, I LOVE it!!! They will all look like that one girl in the early seasons that lost so much weight and she was skin and bones except for her implants, lol, she looked ri.dic.u.lous!!!!

    • Powell says:

      That would be excellent. Cat would say bollocks to Jeff Probst. You have to have Lou. Cat would love to take her down.

    THE REAL ILANA ANGEL‏@realilanaangel
    Is Faye Resnick the Most Hated Woman on Reality TV? http://www.jewishjournal.com/keepingitreal/item/is_faye_resnick_the_most_hated_woman_on_reality_tv#.UUIXV8JJY1k.twitter

    Ilana’s blog on Faye. I liked it. But Ilana still loves Jill which is strange.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I can’t bring myself to click on this blog….

        I’m sorry that I clicked but atleast now I see I’m not the meanest person in the world today

        • AZGirl says:

          I must be terrible person.
          I thought Ilana really brought out the truth about Faye. It drives me crazy that Faye capitalized on Nicole’s death.

          • Contessa says:

            Az, I have to admit I do pop over to read some of her reviews. She supports Lisa, Yo and Brandi (she met Brandi at her book signing). I sometimes feel like a traitor because of the issue with Lynn. But Ilana’s snark can be really to the point sometimes and she is fearless with someone she dislikes. I cleaned that up big time. She gets so emotional in her writing that I think if she was a witch she would be burning them on a stake.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            I think Faye is dreadful and whatever anyone writes about her is her own fault-it’s the author I can’t deal with. She is more dreadful than Faye in my mind!!

      • Powell says:

        LOL JNNTJ. I was thinking the same thing to myself.

    • Vegas Chick says:

      Wow! That was a rage/hate fest. Hate to be around her when she’s really angry…

      • Powell says:

        I think there’s something wrong w/her. She goes to far in her hatred of people she’s never met. We all say we “hate” others because of their behavior but we don’t go as far as she does.

      • BB says:

        In my opinion, she is one unhappy, miserable person.

      • pat says:

        I’m going to take your word for it and not look. She was relentless in her vitriolic rants about Bethenny. I think there’s something wrong with her.

          I’m with you, Pat, I do not take the bait.
          Brandi is frequently retweeting this woman’s diatribe and I don’t go there or bring it here because although I was not ‘here’ then I’ve heard some of the history and generally avoid people who unnecessarily spew venom. Snark is good, hate is bad—in my view there’s a huge difference.

    • AZGirl says:

      I knew posting this would bring on a “reaction”. 🙂
      I did not like how Ilana or her followers treated Lynn. Nor do I understand her hate on Bethenny. Ilana is angry and abrasive.
      But, the way I see it is Ilana is jealous. Of course she will deny this to her death. But it is just my opinion.

      Think about it. Lynn wrote a great blog and brought together a huge following. A following that is still together even after Lynn’s death.
      What blogger can compete?
      Ilana does own her words. To me that is a good thing. She admits when she is wrong another good thing. Angry and all. I don’t agree with her all the time but this piece about Faye was for me justice. Justice for Nicole.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        They way I see her is that she didn’t or wouldn’t right anything for justice-only to get her message of hate out-but that’s just my opinion.

      • Powell says:

        AZGirl I don’t mind that you did. Thks for telling us her take on FayeK. 🙂

    • kit9 says:

      Isn’t this the loon that accused Lynn of being an antisemite?

    • mrspeabody says:

      That was the first time I’ve ever read her blog and boy is she mean. wow.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I would rather stick forks in my eye than read anything from her.

  32. Powell says:

    vilzvet how was my piece of your birthday carrot cake? 🙂 I hope you enjoyed it and had a great BD.

    Jeff, great recap, I tuned in just as he started his rant, it was golden. I had gone out to dinner with my friend and was so excited to get in the car and see that it was only 7pm. I was planning on watching Survivor from the beginning. I got home talked to my hubby and daughter, got ready for bed, snuggled into the covers and put on the TV and looked at the clock and it was 8:30pm……… I didn’t set my car clock ahead~!!, I was really wondering how we had only taken a hour to eat dinner and go shopping, LOL!!! But I did get to see his meltdown, I want Survivor to just be first timers, enough with the retreds!!

    • melthehound says:

      😆 at forgetting to reset the clock.. You can always catch the show at the links I provide but in this case, it’s just more of the same.

      “… enough with the retreds!!”

      Couldn’t agree more.

    Kyle has a blog over on Bravo about snagging a hot husband. I can’t bring myself to read it.

    Ladies short program is over from Worlds and Yu Na Kim is in first. Loved her dress.

  37. iceNfire says:

    I was just looking thru Leann’s Twitter and please correct me if I’m wrong but the last picture she posted of her and Eddie together was Feb. 25th the night of the Oscars. She does Tweet that the two of them are in Vancouver, D.C., London, and taking a hike together but she only posts scenic pictures without her or Eddie in them. Where’s Eddie?

  38. iceNfire says:

    I-CAN-NOT-WAIT TO read This!

  39. BB says:

    OK. Here goes. I KNOW I’m in the minority here, but I am NOT a Cat O fan. I don’t dislike her really. I bought her book and didn’t get far into it before I stopped reading. Maybe I’ll pick it up again to see why I stopped reading it. I can’t remember if there was something about it I didn’t like or it just didn’t keep my attention. Did anyone else here read her book and what did you think of it? Her first book, Inbox Full, is the one I’m talking about. I think she has a second book out or coming out or something.

    • princesspindy says:

      My only love for her comes from her WWHL performance with LuMann!!! It was wonderful!

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      BB….you are not alone-she is not my favorite person either. I found her kind of funny on DC but something about her gets on my damn nerves.

      • mrspeabody says:

        I can take her or leave her, I never saw anything in her that was all that great.

        • kit9 says:

          She annoyed the ef out of me. Her behavior to Stacey’s family was atrocious. Horrendous. And, I don’t like her because she actually made me side with freaking Luann(ugh) when she was on WWHL..Cat came off like such a thin skinned humorless cow.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            People loved her on WWHL but I thought she was bitchy and I don’t even like Luann!!!

            • kit9 says:

              That whole Luann thing was just weird. She just started attacking her for no reason. It was just a silly lighthearted Royal Wedding show and Cat was bizarrely rude to everyone.

          • Catseye says:

            That was when I started disliking her too, when she was so rude with Stacey’s family.

    • kit9 says:

      Oh, right, Cat ‘Stick Her Tongue Down A Royal’s Throat and Then Run to the Tabs’ O. is calling someone a drama attention seeker? Rich.

    • Realhousewifeva says:

      I’m with you BB, don’t care for her. Never bought her book and hated her on WWHL. I’m no Luann fab, but cat was unnecessarily over the top

  40. Boobah says:

    Thank you NMD, Amy, BB, and MelTH for a great blog today!

    MelTH – Great Survivor recap. That was Survivor History for sure. Brandon was pushed to his limit by good ole Pinky. And you know, that’s exactly what I think he wanted to happen. Pinky goes out of his way to make people uncomfortable, I mean, pink underwear for crissakes! I think that’s also why he went after B’s family. Pinky pushes people’s buttons. Especially if they don’t follow his lead, like that ‘gift horse’ comment – so condescending!
    Brandon was right in his assessment about Pinky. But unfortunately the way he handled it freaked people out. Then he went overboard and became very grandiose, which was a little alarming. Pinky just sat back and watched him explode. IMO, Pinky was pleased with himself.
    Pinky needs to go!
    You asked who has more toxic….
    IMO, Brandon in that moment, but Pinky overall.

    • iceNfire says:

      imo – Brandon set the stage for the tribe to vote Pinky out next.

    • melthehound says:

      I saw exactly what was going on. In the show opener, while Brandon was telling the others to vote him out at next opportunity so he could be with his family, we saw Pinky’s wheels turning. Who better to get rid of than someone who says he wants to go? Brandon got out played on this one, I just think he could have handled it differently. He has made his own mark on the game though and because of it, may be out from under his uncle’s shadow. I just hope we don’t have to see the hantz’s (or the pink manties) ever again.

  41. LavaLady says:

    Is anyone watching Idol. This results show is taking forever.

    • princesspindy says:

      It’s not even 6 oclock yet, I can’t believe how long this day has felt…..ugh…

  42. LavaLady says:

    Well, a bit of a surprise, but someone had to go home I guess. Not sure how I feel about it. I think a few of the others should have gone home this time. And, btw, I hate the “save” option.

  43. rabblerouser2010R says:

    I saw something today that broke my heart. I just left a medical building after taking my daughter to a doctors appointment when I saw a senior citizen (my best guess is he was 80+) who had obvious mobility issues trying to get in to the back seat of a car that was parked in a handicapped space.

    I approached him if and asked him if he needed some assistance and he said he did, so I asked him where was he going (in the building, getting something from the car ect) that I could help him with but he didn’t seem to understand what I was asking or know where he was going. Just then, a guy who I met in the elevator who had taken his kids to a dentist appointment had also come over to help but the poor man was so confused. He was unsure how he got there, who drove him there ..but at times insisted that he did, what his name was, who he went with…ect.

    The man who was also helping went and got him a bottle of water from his car while I called the sheriff. We waited for the sheriff to come while another woman who had seen what was going on went in the building and got a few nurses to try and help . The man had no idea on him so we combed his car to try and find some info and found a piece of mail, that had the same last name he gave us but not the first (at times the man seemed to know who he was and at others he was unsure. The whole time the sweet man kept on thanking us for being nice to him and trying to help. I tried to reassure him that everything would be okay but he kept on saying that he was stupid. It made me want to cry) .

    The fire department arrive as did the sheriff and they brought the man inside the building to to try and cool down as it was getting hot outside. They also went from office to office to try to see if they can find out who he was with. Finally about 25 minutes after this started,I could see an elderly woman in a walker approach him with another man who looked to be in his late 60’s (maybe his son). I guess the older lady had an appointment and for some reason the senior gentleman was left in the car..who clearly had Alzheimer or dementia . The man who had also tried to help and I were dumb founded and equated it to leaving a baby in a car. It was 85 degrees today which is about 110 inside a car….who DOES this? I don’t know if the police gave the driver a ticket or a warning but the whole thing bummed me out.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      That is so sad, RR. I’m thankful for people like you and the others who tried to help him.

      • trudie says:

        Agreed. Before he past, my father had Parkinson’s and Parkinson’s dementia. Now, when I see an older person walking slowly or having trouble navigating doors, stairs, etc. I always stop to help. We will all be there some day, my friends.

        PS. I hope they gave the driver a ticket. Leaving that man in the car on a hot day (or any day) is unconscionable.

    Mell the Hound- Jeff
    I’m a very lot late to the party, but it took me awhile to get to the post and read,
    what I may say, is quite probably, the very best re-cap (w/ opinions) of “Survivor”
    ever. ever.
    I know that everyone agreed that “Brandon had lost it” . I thought he went overboard,
    but not nuts considering the douchebag he was dealing with. DID THESE “FAVS”
    seee the season that Philip was on????? There has got to be more we are not
    seeing. I am really sorry, but Pinky is all mouth when he “wants” to be. Watching
    him “””COWAR””” behind the women at the tribal councel showed us who he really is.
    I’ve also had a friend “like” pinky. These are not people you can be friends with.
    When someone is bi-polar and refuses to address it, bad things are bound to happen.
    You become the reason they are not doing well… you don’t help with job interviews,
    perhaps you don’t give them a job….. they find a way to blame thier downfall
    on everyone else, all the while self medicating and refusing to deal with reality.
    Pinky is an asshole.

    • melthehound says:

      NJBev! Hope you’re well.. Your last line says it all. I know Brandon acted like a jerk but I can recognize his reasons for it. It was the wrong thing to do (obviously) if he wanted to stay in the game. I don’t know what’s going through his head but I definitely recognized Pinky for what he is and what he isn’t. He’s never wrong or at fault for anything, just ask him.
