Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion Roundup / Project Runway Recap

Atlanta Reunion Tweets and Other Gossip by NoMoreDrama

The Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion filmed on Wednesday, and for the first time since I can remember, Andy Cohen didn’t tweet before, during, after, about the shoes, about the food, or even about a bird attacking his head.  Nothing, nada, zip.  Things that make you go hmmmm.

Porsha Steward tweeted this:  “This seasons reunion is going to be so intense! Full of crazy surprises. Wow. You won’t want to miss this. #RHOA #Bravo

Cynthia Bailey tweeted this: “All I can say is that RHOA reunion was many things😳Y’all are so not ready I promise u😜@NeNeLeakes @BravoAndy @Bravotv

Kenya Moore tweeted:  #RHOA reunion show is a must see. Don’t come for me unless I send for you!”

Phaedra Parks: “Just got home from shooting #RHOA reunion 4:40am but up and back at work! #Driven #workethic”  (asked if she meant from yesterday – Wednesday – she replied) “yes we started @ 11am”

As for Kim Zolciak, she’s all but confirmed that her appearance on the reunion show is the last we’ll see of her on the Real Housewives of Atlanta.  She tweeted: “It was sad to say goodbye tonight I have such good memories these last 5 yrs but I’m so excited about my future! I will be forever grateful!”

Kim also had A LOT to say about former cast mate Kandi Burruss filing a lawsuit against her for the song “Tardy for the Party.”  Kim is claiming that the lawsuit is a publicity stunt, and that she has paid – even overpaid Kandi.  She also claims that Kandi tried to get the song pulled from itunes in December, but Kim had the paperwork to prove that the song was hers to distribute.

Here are some of the tweets: “I don’t owe kandi a dime in fact I overpaid her! #fact #gotthedocstoproveit  and “If I owed her money why did she do another song! #GTFOH” and “Kandi tried to pull the song down in Dec on iTunes but after I showed documents and proved points song was immediately put back up”.  Asked why she didn’t let it go, or at least keep it off twitter, she replied, “no ma am! Not when you file a lawsuit publicly and it’s full of lies and malicious!.”

Walter Jackson, Kenya’s fake boyfriend on the show, expressed frustration that he wasn’t invited to slam Kenya tell his side of the story.  Walter does not seem to understand that viewers don’t really care.  His tweets before the reunion: “Yeah I think TV meaning (Br_) is scared of me, they can’t control me and they can’t tell me what to say, So that’s y they WON’T INVITE me,” and “I don’t think they want YOU to hear the truth about a certain person now that THEY KNOW the truth, but they will let her make up lies on air” and “Notice I’ve been real quiet for a while. But they keep on letting “you know who” lie and jab at me on air and want me to keep quiet!! WOW.”  I wonder if Walter knows Bryan (Bulldog)?

As for the other on-going feud on Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kenya Moore’s been tweeting that her workout video is a top seller on amazon.com – outpacing Phaedra Parks video.  Phaedra has set the record straight on twitter, explaining that her video is selling well, but has been out much longer which is why it’s not as high on the best selling list.  I remember looking at Phaedra’s video a while back and it was around 15th on the list.  Kenya’s was 19th when I looked at it today.  I’m going to call it even.  Part of me is shocked that Kenya actually went through with it – but maybe people will buy both videos as a comparison.  It could actually be a good marketing tactic.

Project Runway “Take It All Off!” by BB

Note:  I’m only providing one photo from this episode because the designs were so bad, they don’t deserve the time or effort of my downloading pictures of them from the website.

Last episode Tu and Kate were eliminated.  The 8 remaining designers are: Samantha (1 Win), Stanley (1 win), Layana (1 Win), Daniel (2 Wins), Amanda, (1 Win), Patricia, Richard (1 Win), and Michelle (1 Win).  Patricia is the only remaining designer who hasn’t won a challenge.

Host and Judge: Heidi Klum; Judges: Zac Posen and Nina Garcia; Mentor: Tim Gunn; Guest Judge: actress Emmy Rossum

Heidi and Tim come out to the runway and switch up the team selection process.  The judges have decided who is going to be on two teams of four.  The two new teams are Daniel, Patricia, Michelle and Stanley (Team Shades of Grey) versus Richard, Layana, Samantha and Amanda (Team Slick and Hip).  Heidi announces that it’s time to have some fun!  Tim and the designers will be taking a field trip the next day.

The next day, Tim introduces members of the male dance review Thunder from Down Under to the designers.  They come out dressed in their stage costumes and start taking it off.  They are all Australian and very easy on the eyes.  They need a new costume for their opening routine.  They must be able to remove their clothes very quickly.  The designers have a double challenge; make menswear and make it tear-away.  Each team will be designing three full looks and they must be cohesive.  The dancers will be the clients and the models.  They have 30 minutes to caucus, consult with their clients, and sketch.  They will get $750 and only have one day to complete the challenge.

Michelle comes up with an idea about bike messengers, but Stanley thinks it’s too costumey.  She eventually defers to the others on her team and agrees to stay with the business suit attire idea.  The other team listens to their clients and gets some good tips; but Samantha thinks Richard’s ideas are gaudy and will end up being too drag.  Richard doesn’t think his team is very receptive to his ideas and he can already see the lines being drawn.

At Mood, none of the women on Slick and Hip like Richard’s aesthetic and none of the other team like Michelle’s aesthetic.  Tim smells chaos and bedlam at Mood.  He tells them they have a very ambitious challenge and some of the worst work in the past on Project Runway has been menswear.  He tells them they must not disappoint Thunder from Down Under.

The teams divvy up the work amongst themselves.  Team Shades of Grey seems to get off to a good start by each designer working off of their strengths.  Team Slick and Hip are having a harder time coming up with their style.  Richard is trying to stay positive but he’s frustrated because he doesn’t feel like he’s expressing himself as a designer.  He takes a break by skyping with one of his friends.  While talking to her, he has a little breakdown.  Being isolated from his friends and family has been hard, but he is resolved to make it happen as best he can.

Some of the designers are having problems fitting the muscular frames of their clients.  They are used to skinny little male and female models.  Michelle points out that Patricia is doing less work than the others on her team, but she’s still moving slower than her teammates on her one shirt.

Tim comes in to check on the teams.  He starts with Team Slick and Hip.  He wants to make sure Amanda and Samantha are talking to each other about the pants they are each making.  He cautions the team to not feminize the men.  There seems to be a disconnect amongst the team.  Tim is concerned and it’s not good.  He tells them they couldn’t seem to sort things out at Mood and it seems they still haven’t sorted them out.  Panic time for Team Slick and Hip.

Over at Team Shades of Grey, Tim responds a little more positively.  He questions the buttons on Michelle’s vest and tells her it looks better without them.  Tim tells Patricia she has a lot of work left to do as usual.  He tells them they should be pleased but they need to ramp it up.

The designers have until 1 a.m; Layana asks Stanley (from the other team) for advice because she doesn’t think Richard has helped her much with the menswear construction.  The models (dancers) show up for their fittings and some of the designers feel a little awkward around such buff men.  Amanda thinks her group has a bunch of bad listeners.  Michelle is a little concerned about Patricia and her one shirt getting finished, but her team is not too worried when they look at the other team and see they have almost nothing accomplished.

It’s the day of the runway show and there is still a lot of work left to do for some of the designers.  Michelle says if their team is on the bottom, Patricia is going because she has done the least amount of work on her team.  Patricia feels bad because she can’t help out her teammates.  She’s still working on her darned shirt.  The models come in.  Daniel is concerned about Michelle’s vest looking like it belongs in the Lollipop Guild.  Layana is having fitting problems so she’s in trouble but she finds time to flirt with one of the guys.  Richard is in a total panic while sewing collars on at the last minute.  Tim announces 10 minutes left and most of the designers aren’t satisfied with their finished looks.  Michelle messes up Stanley’s shirt by trying to use hot glue instead of Velcro.  Samantha’s final look pants are too tight and too short.  Nobody is happy when they go off to the runway.  It’s not looking good for a few if not most of them.  In all fairness, I think this was a pretty difficult challenge.

Most of the costumes are going to be business suit type looks so I’m not going to go into too much detail about them while they are walking the runway.  I think the winners and losers will come down to the construction, fit, and how well they “tear off” the models.  Here goes. Team Slick and Hip is up first.  Richard and Samantha’s look is first.  Samantha thinks it looks like clown wear.  Richard and Amanda’s look comes next and Richard calls it unsalvageable.  Their third look is ridiculous and Layana can’t help but laugh at it.  After the three models walk the runway, they do a dance routine.  They have no problems shedding their clothes and the tear-away pants come off easily.  The judges get really distracted for a minute.

Team Shades of Grey is up next.  The first model is wearing Daniel’s trench coat with Patricia’s shirt underneath which you can’t even see.  Stanley’s not totally happy with his look, but at least it’s better than the other team.  Michelle thinks her vest is too short, but again, she thinks it’s better than the other teams’ clothes.  The three models do their routine and one of the guys can’t get his shirt off.  One of the other models can’t get his pants off.  The dance routine is a disaster.

So one team has better looks (barely), but their clothes aren’t tear-away.  One team’s clothes look terrible, but at least they tear-away correctly.

PR 1Heidi says she’s very disappointed in them all and calls them “bad designers” for this challenge.  She thinks they should wrap the show early and they should all be out.  Slick and Hip is declared the losing team.  That means Shades of Grey is the winning team by default.

Heidi asks Shades of Gray for an explanation.  They needed to make more interesting clothes.  Heidi thinks Patricia’s shirt looks like a pot holder.  Nina wants to know why they weren’t more creative.  Zac says it’s the weirdest office look he’s ever seen.  Nina thinks the trench coat looks like a beauty smock and she doesn’t want to say more.  Nina thinks Michelle’s is the most palatable of the three.  The client likes it too and would use the hanky Michelle added to it.  Stanley’s client likes how flexible the pants fit him because they are easy to work in.  Emily thinks Michelle’s client looks like he works at a gas station.  Zac thinks Stanley’s shirt is terrifying.  Heidi says she really couldn’t wait until the guys took their clothes off because they are so bad.  The only positive Heidi can give Shades of Grey is that the other team is worse than they are.

Now it’s time for Slick and Hip.  Zac asks Samantha what’s wrong and she tells them it was really hard doing menswear.  Even Richard hasn’t done menswear before.  The judges gasp when they find out Layana made the horrible fitting jacket.  Nina cannot stop laughing hysterically.  The models aren’t really embarrassed because they think the designers were really rushed.  Heidi thinks Samantha’s outfit is the best of the three.  Emmy likes Samantha’s model’s look the best.  Heidi tells the three dancers she feels bad that they had to wear those horrible clothes.  Heidi asks each designer who from their team should go.  Samantha says Amanda.  Richard says Amanda.  Amanda says Richard and when she tries to explain that Richard wouldn’t listen, Richard says it’s bullshit because he didn’t get support from Layana or Amanda.  Layana takes up for herself and says Richard is way over the top and they needed to reel him in some.  Richard and Layana get into it and she says Richard is just making excuses.

Richard lays into Amanda after they leave the stage and she starts crying and apologizes to him.  He tells her it’s OK and that she had to defend herself on the runway.  While the judges discuss Slick and Hip, Nina says she even hates the name of the team.  They hated Layana’s jacket and the way it fit.  They didn’t like the length of any of Richard’s shirts.  Nina says she thinks all the women ganged up on Richard and expected him to be able to tailor when none of them could.  I think it’s either going to be Richard or Amanda going home.  Heidi thinks maybe both of them should go.

As for Shades of Grey, Michelle’s didn’t fit into the office theme, but Emmy liked the way she made her look.  Daniel’s overcoat looked like a flasher and Nina said it was “hiding the thunder” while laughing.  The question is should any of them be declared a winner for this challenge?  If they have one, I think it may be Michelle or Daniel because Zac said the trench coat would have been OK with a belt.

The judges’ decision is a Project Runway first.  They declare there is no winner for this challenge.  As for the losing team, Samantha and Layana are safe.  That leaves Richard and Amanda.  Heidi tells them both it was a very hard decision about who to send home.  Amanda is out.  Heidi tells Richard he’s in, but very, very barely.

I’m feel the same as Heidi, totally let down.  What should have been a fun and exciting challenge turned out to be so blah and very disappointing.  Next week the tempers start to fly.

    • trudie says:

      Happy Friday indeed. My oldest daughter drove through the night from DC and surprised me while I was drinking my morning coffee. She’s just home until Monday, but I will take what I can get!

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Trudie-what a nice surprise!!!

      • Orson says:

        She interrupted your morning coffee? My sympathies. 😉

      • LaineyLainey says:

        That’s wonderful, Trudie. I just had a tearful good bye with my only daughter at the airport. I really didn’t want to cry…but we were hugging and then we were pulling away and she went in for the double hug. WHOAAAHHHH, no fair, then we both started crying!! The funny part of all of this is that I already bought her an airline ticket to come home next month. LOL!!!

        • Powell says:

          Oh poor Lainey. You’re missing your girl already. Cheer up. I’ll do my best to keep you smiling until she comes home next month. 🙂

        • iceNfire says:

          (((Lainey))) and good job buying plane ticket for next month. My Kid will be driving to Arizona with his 2 brothers in tow the 1st week of April….but I’m trying Not to think about it yet 🙂

          • LaineyLainey says:

From “Im ok,” to “I’m a mess.” I can’t even go into her room right now. She sent me a text saying that her favorite rapper was on the flight from Austin to L.A. (Kid Cudi). She got a picture of herself with ICE Cube at LAX. That’s just like her. I’m so glad she’s excited and happy! Is your son excited about his move?

    • L.A. Chica says:

      Good morning, Powell! It’s a beautiful day. 🙂

  2. PutYourHairUp is back to blogging. I’ve added her new blog to the blogroll.
    Last day of vacation ….

  3. G’morning folks!

    Perhaps this has been discussed already, but I’ve got to say that Kenya’s music video is over-the-top cray-cray!

    I’ll also be interested to see the outcome of the Kandi/Kim lawsuit. I tend to think that it will be settled out of court, but how will Kandi then ensure that she gets her $$?

    • melthehound says:

      Queen, I don’t think Kandi will ever see that money. Kimmie is a taker, believes she’s entitled to everything, and how dare anyone ask her to believe otherwise. If I remember the story correctly though, Kandi was a little too over trusting with that whole Tardy thing. She is a business woman in the music business and should have known better.

      • thedesigndiva2 says:

        mth…if kandi wins the judgement, she can file it against kim and she will one day collect… I’m wondering if kandi is also bringing bravo into this ,seeing how kim’s new show is named…tardy for the party…..hmmmm

        • melthehound says:

          Kandi can get all the judgements she wants. She then has to Collect. Unless Kim has some other ‘job’, then she’ll Have to drag Bravo into it somehow, even if just to attach whatever Kim earns (as well as anything else she does)..

          • Powell says:

            Kim has her Tardy salary & her Moscato salary but all they need is her SSN to find her bank accounts.

            • melthehound says:

              I know that but it will be on Kandi to do the collection.. All I’m saying is that even if Kandi wins, which is not a foregone conclusion, she still has to pry the cash out of Kimmie’s hands.

              • Powell says:

                Kim won’t have a choice. I worked for a bank. If Kandi won & the judge signs off on a lien to be placed on Kim’s account, Kim won’t have access to that portion. She won’t be able to close the account. If Kim ponies up the money to Kandi it will have to be certified funds & then the court will send a lien release to the bank to release the hold. If Kim doesn’t pay on her own the funds will be sent to Kandi via the court or Kandi’s attorney. I still can’t believe the attorney is Phaedra. I think that’s a whole other problem.

                • melthehound says:

                  I just think Kandi is in for a longer fight than just getting a judgement against Kim, IF she gets one.

                • mrspeabody says:

                  Could Kim take the money out of the account if she did it before the lien got there? Just wondering.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        I totally agree with you..this is a “my bad” on Kandi. Why the he!! didn’t she put the agreement in writing. After all her experience in the music business?? Perhaps up to now she always dealt with trustworthy people.

        • melthehound says:

          🙂 ..

        • Powell says:

          Right. She should’ve had her biz woman hat on before Kim walked into Kandi’s studio. That’s one reason why I think Kandi should chalk it up to experience but on the other hand I’d want my money too. I wonder how this effects future use of the song. Tardy was popular for a few mths. In the future it could be used in movies, tv, commercials. Who knows.

          • melthehound says:

            Kandi should have put a lid on this a long time ago. Treat a grifter with kindness for the sake of getting along, you get grifted.

    • pat says:

      I saw that one of the things Kandi is requesting, is that all copies of the song, or anything related to the song in Kim’s possession, be destroyed. If nothing else, she might succeed in making sure Kim can’t make any more money off the song in the future. The one thing Kandi agrees was already in place when she worked on the song, was the title. So maybe she won’t care if Bravo is using that in Kim’s show.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Hi QBB, I can’t stop curtseying…omg…help!!!!!!!!!!! ok, I’m better now. I love Kenya’s video. Silly fun. Kandi/Kim lawsuit…she sure waited to sue. It’s very strange. I just thought she should have/would have done this a lot sooner!!!!

    • Powell says:

      Hi Queen B. 🙂 I suppose a lien could be placed on Kim’s bank account.

  4. california35 says:

    Good morning!! Happy Friday to you all.

  5. TexasTart says:

    Good Morning! Hopefully there ia a different host for the ATL reunion. As for Andy’s tweets on the 13th; there are tweets in the morning afternoon and evening regarding his WWHL in Austin. Pics he tweeted about partying the night before (he was spotted at local gay bar Rain) …..I’m just saying I don’t think he would have time while hosting a reunion to tweet party pics of himself and Brandi. He would have done the usual sides of the couch and shoe shots. One tweet at 10:12am 3/14 “Beautiful day in Austin!!!”
    IMO he was not in Atlanta – and the ladies didn’t come here either.

    So WHO was the host?!

  6. HuskerHuny says:

    Project Runway last night was a hot mess. There has never been a successful men’s wear challenge. I think this challenge set these designers up for failure. At least give them two days to try and make three presentable looks. Or keep the time the same but only do two looks. I don’t care what Zac Posen says – it is different designing for men and women, especially Amazon-like men like last night’s were. It’s challenges like this one that can send a very talented designer home. I was hoping that Amanda would get her break-out moment, but was not to be.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      It was a disappointing episode. The damn judges and producers are to blame for this NOT THE DESIGNERS!!! Get real, producers!! What did you think would happen?

      • TexasTart says:

        You’re both right. I didn’t get to see the entire episode, but the highlight for me was when Nina got the giggles over the velcro opening up on the big guys pants and it took her a long while to recover, had me laughing so much.

  7. pat says:

    Good a.m. ladies and gent. I think I’m in the minority in that I like Andy as reunion host. I think he’s gotten much better at asking the follow-up questions that the viewers are thinking. Can’t be easy, dealing with all those estrogen-laced egos, but I think he does a good job.

    • T-Rex says:

      Well, it’s odd that he Hosted the RHBH reunion but not Atlanta. Hmmmm Wondering if maybe RHATL is moving to another channel or they are discontinuing the franchise now that NeNe has moved to LA to become a “stah”. I am not watching the franchise so not sure what the ratings are and could this franchise work without NeNe

      • TexasTart says:

        Oops, my comment went into oblivion because I hit keys too fast, so I don’t think it had my name there….anyways….. T-Rex, I don’t remember the # of millions of viewers this moment, but RHOA is the highest rated of all HW shows. Even with absense of Nene and Kim leaving….of course, Kim leaving encourgaged me to watch more 😉

        • iceNfire says:

          Maybe Dandy just doesn’t want to deal with the 1stblack miss u.s.a (that was really the 2nd) her fake boyfriend or the blonde(fake?) aunt that couldn’t/wouldn’t invite her to her home. Andy should be embarrassed about the whole Kenya mess but he should’ve shown up for reunion regardless.

          • TexasTart says:

            Hi Ice, I don’t think Andy has enough power to decide if he wants to host or not, if anything this was a Bravo schedule conflict and Andy could not fit in Atlanta. Or they could not do this next week.

            It could be they are going to invest more into WWHL in the long haul, afterall they took that live show on the road, which I found fairly incredible little ole’ Bravo pulled that off and if the ratings were good then it will help cement his value as talk show host (although that is an insane field to compete in, but his is like no other no matter what you think of him.)

            • iceNfire says:

              Oh, I thought Andy was some kind of executive, a vp or something at Bravo. Don’t know where I got this, maybe Andy lead me to believe this to be true. Comcast owns it all tho. NBC and all the other sub company/networks

              • TexasTart says:

                He is the Executive VP of Development and Talent. I also think he is an executive producer of MM. And of course WWHL host and an on-air talent for Bravo and their beloved reunions. So he does have power, but my guess is he is asked to do these reunions or not.

        • SCGirl says:

          I hear ya Texas Tart….I am glad Kim’s not on RHOA anymore, her attitude had become disgusting, not to mention the disturbing amount of eff this and eff that in front of her children that we had to hear non stop. It’s a good thing Kim left RHOA when she did this season, because one more episode of her talking down to people and cursing every other word was going to drive the show in the ground. I feel sort of bad to say this, but heck I will anyway; I can not wait to see Kim’s “Ask, Believe and Receive” world to tumble down…she will soon realize that putting all her eggs in Kroy’s basket will not pay off in the long run. Kim made a stupid move when she decided to throw away the life that she had made for herself before Kroy was even in the picture.What an idiot she was to throw all those RHOA opportunities away so that she could be identified through Kroy. Kroy and Kim won’t be together forever, he is much to young to be tied down with a woman so much older with 4 kids.Kim better enjoy the high life while she can.

          • pat says:

            Kim and Kroy sure seem like a mismatch to me. Now they have two babes together. Football money is good, until it isn’t. Short careers for those guys, and many of them aren’t smart enough to sock it away while they’re making it, And the way Kim spends $…yikes! When she goes back to hooking to bring in the big bucks, that’s when Kroy will see the light.

            • melthehound says:

              When she goes back to hooking to bring in the big bucks
              ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
              ROTFLMAO!

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              I think I read that the average NFL player is bankrupt within 5 years of retiring; which is probably how the joke that NFL really means “Not For Long” came to be.

              • melthehound says:

                I don’t think it will take 5 years. I’d bet she’s spending it faster than he can make it.

                • TexasTart says:

                  ITA with SCGirl and every post following re: Kim.
                  Like the “Not For Long” rabblerouser, that is a new one to me…it will most likely be Kroy’s fate.

      • RealHousewifeVA says:

        Atlanta is the highest rated RH franchise. I’m shocked Andy wouldn’t host the reunion, maybe Anderson Cooper did? lol

        • Cruickal says:

          I was thinking Anderson Cooper too! I think he likes Nene too much to be totally impartial though as well. In the past he has said she is his favorite housewife.

        • TexasTart says:

          You two have a real good guess with AC! He does have favorites but he does follow the show and unlike Wendy W. I think he could be impartial.

  8. Boobah says:

    Good Morning everyone. Happy Friday! Thank you NMD and BB for a great blog today. BB, I really have come to rely on your Night Lineups. I think it was a great idea to include in the blog because there is just so many shows on these days that it’s hard to keep track.

    Hope everyone has a great day.

    • trudie says:

      I agree, thanks for the tv lineups, BB. I set my DVR by them.

    • TexasTart says:

      You have a great day too, Boobah and Trudie – enjoy the coffee and the kid! Just wanted to jump on this train to say thank you, BB for those listings! I have found things I would have not ever realized were on that I liked and I found things that freaked me out they were on TV! And that is what a channel changer is made for! But overall I find myself relying on it too! Now see now ya’ started, BB, something you can’t stop…jk…we’ll take what we get!

  9. FLASHBACK FRIDAY… today is dedicated to ALVIN LEE.. founding member of TEN YEARS AFTER.. who passed away last week…
    this song is still relevant to this day…enjoy

    hugs and peace
    diva

    • HuskerHuny says:

      I totally love these flashbacks that you post. I am a lover of classic obscure music. By the way, check out YouTube and the video of Billy Joel and some kid from Vanderbilt U. who asked to come on stage and accompany him on New York State of Mind. If you’re a BJ fan, it will knock you socks off!

      Hope all is well with you DD2 and have a groovy weekend!

      • huskerhuny..so glad you enjoy them…I have loved music from birth…my Mom says I was born humming…lol lol
        my very first album was Iron Butterfly… DROVE MY PARENTS NUTS….
        I also do flashback fridays on my fb…. time to bring back the good music to todays YUTES… the meaning is still there after all these years….

        hugs and peace
        diva

        ps…and yes…I enjoy Billy Joel.. we didnt start the fire !!!!

        • Vegas Chich says:

          Yutes, lol… My Cousin Vinny… Whatever happened to Joe Pesci?
          Good choice. Posted the same song on my FB when I heard Alvin Lee died. I lived to go to the Filmore East and see Ten Years After. Alvin Lee was a hottie, lol.

          • vegas…alvin INDEED was a hottie….. I get sad when I read these obits and realize that we are losing so much of our past and I want to try and help keep it alive…
            My Cousin Vinny… one of my FAVS … watch it alot… too funny…. haven’t heard much about Joe since his ex wife went to prison for that attempted murder thing last year….hmm

        • Just Wondering in Jersey says:

          Iron Butterfly. Ah yes. I kept playing that over and over while my father was refinishing the attic stairs. It did NOT go over very well LOL.

          • thedesigndiva2 says:

            jwij….my Mom got so pissed she broke my album in 1/2 one day..I thought my world had just ended…. I didnt speak to her for WEEKS.. just made finger motion like I was signing and whistling “In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida”… that drove her even nuttier…. hahahahaha

    • pat says:

      LOVE that song, and I’m a big fan of the 60s-70s blues infused rock. Such talent, back in the day. Singers, song writers AND musicians. I’ll take that over today’s lip syncing, dancing, manufactured music stars, any day.

    • L.A. Chica says:

      That was great to hear again, Diva, thank you! I, too, enjoy these flashback Fridays.

    • melthehound says:

      This was a garage band staple back in the day (says the old phart).. As to the Yutes, couldn’t agree more.

  10. Vegas Chick says:

    Misspelled my own Alias and my post is stuck in moderation. Oh well, NMD will let me out eventually… 🙂

  11. windycitywondering2 says:

    SO will the RHOA bring it at the Reunion or is this just the standard Bravo PR hype? This season has been so hard to watch, something is off and the new ladies just don’t fit in nor did they have an opportunity to allow us to get to know them before the petty drama began.

    • RealHousewifeVA says:

      With Kenya in attendance, I bet there was major drama at the reunion. Plus the whole back and forth with Kim and Kandi right beforehand. Lots of fighting going on with them

  12. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Lainey-if I remember correctly today is the day? Thinking of you and your girl!! Lots of hugs to you today( if I have the date wrong-take the hugs anyway!!!)

    • LaineyLainey says:

      OH, I’ll take the hugs!!! I’m fine now but it was difficult driving home from the airport with tears in my eyes and my nose all plugged up. I had to pull over, haha!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU for thinking of me and my life’s treasure. She’ll be back soon!!!

      • TexasTart says:

        Thinking of you too, by some miracle I remembered that but thought you were driving. Gonna be extra quiet at Casa LaineyLainey 😦 Big hugs to you!

      • trudie says:

        Lainey, I hate to tell you this, but I cry each and every time a child leaves. I wonder if it ever gets easier.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I’m throwing in a extra hug for good luck!! Be confident that you are such an amazing mother that your girl will 100% fine and that she will be back to see you in no time!!!

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        (hug)

    • iceNfire says:

      (((Lainey))) left you a hug way up there ^ 🙂

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Thanks, everybody!!! It’s interesting how much I’ve come to rely on alla youse. Thanks for being here. It really, really makes everything more bearable. We all seem to be on the same ride…life!! 🙂 It always comes back to approaching these milestones with gratitude, right? Hard to focus on the empty nest feeling when there is so much to be grateful for. Right now, I’m grateful for y’all!!! Smiling.

        My husband just so happened to have business in Indian Wells, CA next week so…he is with Laineygirl to help her settle in – she’s very happy. Our son is still in town. We had dinner (the four of us) with him last night. It was great seeing him. He will be coming over sometime this weekend with his g.f. – I plan on making them a nice meal. I love to feed people!! He leaves on Monday, so I will focus on being grateful that I will get to share some time and a homemade meal with Laineyboy (and g.f.).

  13. SoutheastVA says:

    Hi from sunny but chilly Virginia. This is Southeast VA, the land of the furlough notices. I and every other federal civilal servant in the arear (MANY MANY PEOPLE) will be getting a notice next week. How honored I fee to receive such a letter in my 25th year as a civil servant. I wish I could get paid for all of the hours I worked without it to offset the 20% pay reduction I will be receiving each pay day until the end of September. However, it could be worse. I do have a job. (Thank the Lord!) I just wish this Congress would do their job especially since they can’t be furloughed. Go figure. Happy Friday y’all!!

    • pat says:

      I hear ya, SE VA, My hubs is getting furloughed too. 😦

      • Powell says:

        pat I’m so sorry for your husband & you too. It just breaks my heart. No COLA in a while & now furloughs. Ugh. Sickening. 😦

    • BB says:

      SE VA. Sorry you’re having to experience that. My daughter and SIL will be getting them too. So that’s a 20% pay cut for them both. Right when they are having a baby, too. And my sister in law, my nephew and his wife. But, like you say, at least they have a job. I, too, am tired of Congress and the POTUS playing games with each other at our expense. What a divisive bunch they are in DC. And that’s will be extent of my ranting about the subject.

      • Powell says:

        Oh goodness BB. Quite a few in your family. I’m so sorry. Frankly I wish I could fire every last one of them. It just makes me sick. They’re not fighting for us. They’re just trying to prove who has the biggest(insert), you get my drift. A bunch of as*holes.

    • Catseye says:

      We seriously need to pass a law cutting our Congresspersons wages. Everyone else in our country has had to bite the bullet.

    • TexasTart says:

      Sorry to hear SoutheastVA, Pat and BB’s family members too. I absolutely can not fathom this country has been flying by the seat of it’s pants without a new budget for years! I am certain if I didn’t operate my household or my business with a budget that I would be bankrupt and laying off my people too!!!! It aggravates me SO much that…uh, I know, I need to get my mind back on the housewives 😉

      • Powell says:

        TexasTart why dont they understand that? I don’t think they really care. They just don’t want to piss of the special interests that donate money to their re-elections, etc etc.

        Imsorsorry for everyone here that’s affected and the country. It’s starting to depress the hell out of ne so I’m not talking about it anymore.

        • TexasTart says:

          I hear you, so let’s get back to complaining about the housewives, as we are the only special interests they have to worry about, lol. Seriously though, I hope this doesn’t reach you Powell.

    • Powell says:

      SoutheastVA. I’m so sorry. This just sucks. I pray it doesn’t happen to me. I really can’t afford it. Everyday I wish I could go downtown and just slap every last one of them. It makes no sense. They really don’t care about the employees, the citizens, the country. I pray they put this to bed ASAP. Again, I’m so sorry. 😦

  14. melthehound says:

    Hope you all don’t mind but I know some of you watch American Idol

    http://realhousewifeofaiken.com/2013/03/15/american-idol-top-ten/

    • Powell says:

      I haven’t watched since,Paula left. I did see bits on The View & TMZ. What the hell was Nicki talking about w/the Aunt Jemima Waffles and Syrup? Trying to say the singer’s performance was warm. And Mariah Carey couldn’t stand up to clap because her dress was too tight? Is this about the contestants or Nicki & Mariah?

      • melthehound says:

        I think Nicki is a pretty good judge even though she has her unique way of putting things. Mariah is just kind of there in an almost stoned state. Both are infinitely better than the last two women judges on that show, J-Lo and Kara D. That said, the show is about the judges. You know that 😉 My recaps however, are about the contestants.

        • HuskerHuny says:

          Keith Urban has been a pleasant surprise. He gives great feedback in such a professional manner. He points out their weakness and gives them suggestions on how to make it better in understandable English (although with an Aussie accent). Randy just keeps yammering on. I’ve heard Mariah give helpful advice once or twice, but she sits there like a statue and basically repeats the same thing over and over. Nikki – please quit this show already. And what in the heck do you know about music? You are a massive mess girlie!

          • melthehound says:

            Yo Dawg Jackson has Got To Go. He should have made his exit when Paula did or at the very least, Simon. Same thing with Ryan Seacrest.

          • Powell says:

            Keith sniffed Nicki’s cup when she was talking abou waffles. He had a look on his face like “WTH?”. He’s quite handsome. Nicole picked so much better this Time.

        • Powell says:

          Thk goodness you look at the contestants MTH. 🙂

    • LavaLady says:

      I enjoyed your recap Mel. I am really into AI this time around, don’t know why. Oh yes I do. Keith’s the reason. I just love him. It will be girl idol this year, I am sure. Not a big fan of Charlie for the 11th spot on the tour, but I do appreciate that he left his rocker gear at home. Actually was not a big Curtis fan either, but don’t think he should have gone home first.

  15. designernailsdiana says:

    Looks like Ole Man Winter just won’t let go. Minne”snow”ta gets more snow/ice/freezing rain. ARGHH enough already!!
    On a brighter note, I cut out 3 shirts to sew for MrDesigner for our Jamaican vacation. He’s gonna love the Dragon print best I just know it!
    Thank you for the blog NMD and BB I like seeing what’s coming up on tv too, it helps me plan my evening. MTH I keep missing Survivor so your blogs help me know what happened.
    Last night was all HLN and Jodi Arias trial. That trial better be done before I fly out on the 4th. :sigh:
    TGIF!
    Diana

    • melthehound says:

      🙂

    • TexasTart says:

      Hey diana, hope your weather takes a turn for the better soon! So you are making shirts for the Mr. — they could’ve used your knowledge on a Project Runway challenge last night! My gosh that was AWFUL, but they did only have 24 hours, which was probably the real problem. Thanks for the recap BB! 😀

      • designernailsdiana says:

        Ya know I was thinking I could’ve done that men’s wear challenge. I’ve made 6 other shirts for Mr so he’s been well dressed. He just wanted shirts that fit better since he’s lost some weight since our last trip to Jamaica in 2011.

    • princesspindy says:

      Have fun sewing!!!

    • Powell says:

      so your husbandbis going to be styling on vaca. That’s nice. 🙂 You’ll have fun as long as you don’t go via Carnival Cruise. 🙂

      I fell asleep on HLN After Dark so I missed the mock jury’s verdict but I saw it this afternoon and saw it was 11 to 1 that the prosecutor is not being to aggressive w/Jodi. I hope the real jury sees it that way. I tell you this trial is never going to end. No court today and they only had court Wed & Thurs. The judge needs to have court M-F 9am – 6pm.

      • chismosa says:

        Ok so I set to dvr something on HLN that is nancy grace and said “NEW” tonight at 8pm eastern and it seemed to say a roundup of the recent trial days. So I hope that gets me up to speed

        Why the F does Nancy wear that barrette in her hair !!!!! Ughhhhhh but I want to hear what’s up with the case lately so I hope that’s good.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Nancy Grace and her accent and hair do!!! She is so heated over every case it’s almost comical-if the content wasn’t so serious I would laugh!! That barrette is beyond redic and ever time she says Jane Casaras’ name it sounds hysterical!! I watched her during the Casey Anthony trial and if I had a nickel for every time she “tot mom” I would be very rich!!!

        • Powell says:

          Chimosa that will catch you up. LOL on the barrette. She’s been wearing it since DWTS. 🙂 HLN After Dark was recorded and she played the prosecution side. She didn’t have on the barrette. She had her hair up and it looked nice for a change. 🙂

          • designernailsdiana says:

            That barrette is hilarious and when Casey A was on trial we joked that we should make a drinking game when we watched Nancy. Every time she said “Tot Mom” we had to take a drink, we’d be drunk in less than 10 minutes. Glad we never tried the game.

        • pat says:

          LOL re the barrette! I was wondering the same thing. Time for a new look!

          • Powell says:

            We’re not the only ones that want her to dump the barrettes. She’s gotten feedback. She lost I think at least 20 lbs on DWTS. She’s gained it back + some. Since she’s had her twins she cares less about her appearance.

      • designernailsdiana says:

        I agree.

  16. Powell says:

    Hey everyone. How’s it shaken? I went to the grocery store & Target. Now I’m back & it’s George Brent & Bette Davis day on TCM. I’m in heaven 🙂 I missed most of Jezzibel, now I’m watching Dark Victory. Yippie!! 🙂

  17. AZGirl says:

    “What a dump” he,he,he

    • shamrockblonde says:

      my favorite movie of all time is All About Eve – love love love that movie!!! –
      thanks for the PR recap – the challenge was ridiculous – as for the reunion – I am not sure I will watch – I won’t want to, but somehow I see myself tuning in anyway –

      for all of you, with my love –

      May the road rise up to meet you.
      May the wind always be at your back.
      May the sun shine warm upon your face,
      and rains fall soft upon your fields.
      And until we meet again,
      May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

      Hav a Happy St. Patrick’s Day on Sunday!!!!

      *hugs entire board really hard*

    • Powell says:

      He, he AZGirl. 🙂

      All About Eve shamrock. Love love love it. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen Bette Davis’ movies. She is one of my fav actresses of her time. I love movies from 30s-60s much better than the movies of today.

  18. chismosa says:

    Hi all- you all have me so INTRIGUED by this Atlanta reunion stuff. Has anyone tweeted / or seen tweets to Andy asking if he hosted the reunion?

    Now I’m analyzing Wendy – she didn’t have a new show today, Friday, which I was pissed about, it “seemed” new yesterday and Wednesday – but they can manipulate that and tell the audiences it’s a certain day but really they are filming 1 or 2 shows in 1 day. I’m analyzing all her hot gossip on my head now to see if anything was so late-breaking. Hmm she did NOT talk a lot about the housewives this week so maybe that was something – since she’s been off, ugh. Racking my brain!

    I didn’t care for Vivica A Fox’s hosting of the reunion of I think a show on Style. I found her boring.

    Andy did not seem to discuss any late-breaking news when he was on this week so maybe he double filmed 2 WWH’s one night and ran to Atlanta another night.

    Intriguing ………….

    Have a great Friday everyone. Cold day for our st party’s day parade tomorrow.

    • princesspindy says:

      I had the same thought someone here should tweet the HWs and see if they will answer re: the host of the reunion….

    • Powell says:

      It may be Wendy’s turn to show repeats before the sweeps season or whatever they call it for talkshows where they take a sort of vaca then put new shows back on.

      • Just Wondering in Jersey says:

        She was on vacation last week and this week is supposed to be new. Maybe the popus interruptus changed the scheduling?????

      • chismosa says:

        She took 1 week off, went away with her family- were Jersey schools off last week ? Doesn’t he have school ?

        So she’s back now, but not on Fridays my dvr seems to say. I’m mad. Sorry, I live for Hot Topics. Even next week said Friday is not new.
        What a cool surprise if she will host Atlanta reunion.

        Porsha seems scheduled to be on WWH Sunday so we’ll see what Andy says about the reunion “filming”
        No doubt it will center on Kordell’s yelling at her this week

        • Powell says:

          That’s what I watch for “hot topics”. It’s so funny.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            me too!! I love hot topics. I couldn’t care less about the rest of the show. She’s not the best interviewer…well, shoe cam is good, right? 🙂

    • iceNfire says:

      Vivica A Fox’s hosted the Jerseylicious reunion, agree she isn’t that good at hosting. Does anyone watch Jerseylicious? That GG sure did a 180…nothing like the sweet girl she pretended to be in the beginning

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I watch(shocker I know) I like the old GG better but I do like anyone who yells at Tracy!!!

      • chismosa says:

        Oooh Ice I’m going to have to catch you later to hear more. I watched like seasons 1-3 of the never ending Jerseylicious then I got bored. I can’t STAND TRACY. She is like Jill Zarin to me.
        I will have to ask what’s up with Gigi- she looks SO different. I didn’t like that she became buds with Tracy, aka Satan, to me.

      • Powell says:

        Yeah I watch JL. No Vivica was not good at all. I always play catchup cause I don’t watch on a regular basis. I caught up last weekend. I liked Anthony’s photo shoot for the book which was a great idea. And Olivia did a great job helping him. I missed Alexia’s wedding. Is that her name? I cant remember. So surprised she is having a baby too. She & Gayle’s daughter apologized to each other for how they acted towards each other. That was good. I so love that GG told Tracy where to go. I don’t like her at all.

        • chismosa says:

          Alexis- ?? Name—- ??? Is pregnant? Wow

          I think her fiancé was Jewish. How did they marry, in a church? I have to catch up.

          I hate Tracy. Forever and ever. She and Jill should be in a show together.

          • iceNfire says:

            I don’t think they married yet….did they? Tracy and Olivia have a truce going. GG completely screwed Tracy over and I kinda feel sorry for Tracy, her family wants nothing to do with her wedding but her fiance’s family is very good to her

            • Powell says:

              chimosa and ice Alexia did get married. She’ll be having her baby soon on the show. I missed the ceremony epi.

      • Joy Behar did Mom Wives reunion and she did a good job – no nonsense and didn’t back off any questions.

  19. princesspindy says:

    The official start of our front yard redesign happened this morning….. I can’t go look, the guy with the backhoe is still out there and I just am a wreck…… I don’t know why…… Maybe I am still recovering from having to rush my daughter to the ER yesterday, she was walking the dogs and they pulled and she lost her balance and her leg came down on a piece of rebar that was marking off the area for the backhoe to dig….. big scrape down the front of her shin…. So, her arm is killing her from the Tetanus shot and her leg is killing her from the rebar…like my hubby says, if she didn’t have bad luck, she would have no luck at all…. I told her the good news is that the shot was for Diphtheria and Whooping Cough too, lol!! I am still in my pjs hiding in my bedroom with the dogs, lol!! I wish I had some of Kim’s meds!! (Probably cause I am not in complete control of the project is the real reason, HA!!)

    • chismosa says:

      Yikes Pindy good luck, and so sorry about your daughter !

      Who is your gravatar? Is that some guy on his cell in the bleachers catching a fly all? Sorry I know NOTHING about baseball.

      That’s kind of funny him not even seeming to care lol

      • princesspindy says:

        I was just looking at pictures yesterday and this one caught my eye cuz he is so nonchalant about the whole thing…. I had another one but my daughter said it wasn’t appropriate….LOL! It made me laugh but she vetoed it, lol!

        • chismosa says:

          No matter what you pick you always crack me up. I wonder what the inappropriate one was …… Hmmmmmmm.

          Lol

    • iceNfire says:

      Hi PP – sorry to hear about daughters accident. the thing that always throws me with Tetanus shots is they last for 10 years and who actually remembers that far back when doctor asks when you last had the shot???

      • princesspindy says:

        When I called to see what I should do with her they said 5 years…. I know with what we went thru with the Whooping Cough last year that they are now saying that the boosters are not lasting as long as they thought/use to…. so now with tetanus, it is 5 years….easier to remember too!

        • iceNfire says:

          5 years now? I’ll just sit here in front of tv and computer, nobody ever got Tetanus from doing this…so far anyway

          • princesspindy says:

            Well, we laughed because just before she took the dogs out for a walk she went out to bring in our trash cans (unasked) and then had helped the 85 year old lady across the street by bringing in her trash cans….when she told me this my first thought was “no good deed goes unpunished” yikes!!! and then she took the dogs and a fall….. so stay put behind your computer!!!

          • designernailsdiana says:

            LOL iceNfire I’ll do the same. TV, Computer, remote in hand, but dang at some point you have to eat. Eating could get you sick.

    • Powell says:

      The yard redo sounds great but your poor princess. She’s seen enough of the ER. I hope she’ll be feeling better soon.

      • princesspindy says:

        I know, that poor kid, and next week is her birthday, she needs to heal quickly!

        • designernailsdiana says:

          I’ve always wondered why these types of accidents happen. I mean.. think about how BIG the yard and driveway is and at just that time and place she falls onto the rebar. What were the odds? SMH I’m just glad she got her shot and is on the mend now. I’ll say a prayer for her and one for your sanity as this project starts.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          😦
          I hope she is feeling better by then. Happy Birthday to her in case I forget to say it later 😀

          • princesspindy says:

            Thanks RR, I am so glad I am past the kid’s party days!! Yours sounding like a blast!! When we moved down here from Los Angeles I got the bright idea to ask my daughter for her 9th or 10th birthday, “Do you want a party or $100? Well, smart kid took the $100 and I have never had to give a party again!!! We still went out to dinner but it was one of my smartest ideas!!

    • Boobah says:

      OMG, PrincessPindy!!! I cannot believe it! Poor PrincessBeanieBoo! Prayers being sent that she heals swifty. Hang in there! (((PrincessPindy)))

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Oh my gosh, sorry about PrincessBeanieBoo – I don’t blame you for feeling uneasy about that Backho. Never trust a back-ho or a front-ho.

  20. chismosa says:

    Meant to add for PR: I’m glad Amanda was out. She seemed to botch up a LOT of stuff. And I like Richard awwwww.
    How did the pattern that was the same for BOTH pants of Amanda’s and of Samantha’s come out so badly on Amanda? She had to go. We’ve seen that coming for weeks

    I have heard time and again how “difficult” menswear is (I never understood why but I guess the tailoring ? Women have curves so to me that’s such a bigger deal, no?). So for them to give them only 1 day + new groups + menswear + not even a menswear designer as the guest judge but a c-list actress/singer ? Come on.

    Nina losing it was hysterical.
    Those guys did NOT have great rhythm nor were they in tune with each other that well I must say. Channing Tatum is king in the rhythm department in my book
    Those male strippers better never see the gals in the Atlanta housewives, they wouldn’t be up to par. Hahaha :). Those gals KNOW their strippers. Lol

      I think Samantha was smart enough to cut the fabric larger than the pattern…maybe based on the measurements she took. One thing I have learned is that it is so much easier to take in than to let out… Richard’s excuse was lame, he wears men’s clothes ~ he didn’t know what a collar looks like? I thought they both might go… It was nice to see Nina loosen up!

      • chismosa says:

        Right but then I thought both Samantha and Amanda would use that one pattern to match each’s models specs specifically.

        Amanda has had issues the last many challenges especially on anything she did alone herself.
        In the words of 1 of my favorite Donna Summer song, Enough is Enough. Lol
        I have a soft spot for Richard. His team didnt take to him and maybe he subconsciously was sabotaging who knows.

        • princesspindy says:

          I can’t go on, I can’t go on, no more no!

          I thought it was funny cuz he is older than the girls and they didn’t understand what he was saying about the fancy buttons on tuxedo shirts….I knew what he was talking about but I think they thought he was going to put big sparkly buttons on the shirts… Yes, it was Amanda’s time to go, walk out that door, just turn around now, cuz you’re not welcome anymore……

      • designernailsdiana says:

        WAIT:::: Do you mean to tell me they get to use patterns for PR?

        • princesspindy says:

          No, they have to make their patterns, but I make mine for my kids costumes for Comic Con, ya know the tape measure is your friend!! AND you know cuz you are sewing your hubs shirts, it’s not rocket science, it can be very challenging but last night was a disgrace!!!

          • designernailsdiana says:

            Now I need to get on that show j/k

            • princesspindy says:

              It’s the only reality show I could do, there are no heights, no strange foods, and I can design and sew, and I can do it under pressure of a deadline, lol!!

    OT – Remember when Kyle was So Embarrassed when Brandi said STFU at the dinner party in Ojai restaurant? Well did anyone catch Kyle saying “Sh*t! This guy’s really… Fkin hell!” In limo with her four daughters present? Kyle the Hippo Krit 🙂

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Ice-everybody slips in a curse word in front of their kids-not everyone yells STFU in a nice restaurant !!!!

      • iceNfire says:

        I almost never swear, I do say dammit! but Kid told me everything I say it he gets hungry for a ham sandwich. huh??? do i stutter???

        • pat says:

          I can’t say that I’ve ever told anyone to STFU, but I CAN say that I’d like to!! 🙂

          • pat says:

            Maybe I’ll put that on my bucket list.

            • princesspindy says:

              I was trying to think if I had ever said that to anyone……

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                I don’t think I ever have but my older sister….she probably has said enough for all of us!!!

                • princesspindy says:

                  lol, I know I have “thought” it!!

                  • TexasTart says:

                    I was trying to think if I ever said that and I remember a heated argument with hubs and I accidentally blurted out “Go.F____ Yourself!” It was part hormonal and part deserved but I regret it in every way possible!!!

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  You have a Sailor Sister, huh? we don’t cuss in my family; they don’t cuss in my hubby’s family either I let slip a few every now and then. My late maternal grandmother used to cuss like a Sailor. She was funny. My husband is so against using foul language.. Sometimes he takes it too far. The other night I was frying some fish in a little bit of olive oil…and I let the pan get too hot, so when I went to squeeze lemon juice on the fishies, a big flame popped up and nearly burned my hand…I wasn’t thinking and I screamed “FWORD!!” My daughter said, “Oh mommy, are you ok? Are you burned?” My husband who was watching the whole thing says, “HONEY, your language!! I mean, are you ok???” The three of us busted up laughing. Fortunately, I was fine, only the lemon got singed.

                  • Powell says:

                    I don’t go around cursing either & I will say “what the F or she’s a B, something like that in front of my mom. Sometimes I’ll say the word. But if I use the word its because it’s just the only way to express it. No one in my family are cursers but like me will use the words, again because that’s the only way to really express it. 🙂

                    • LaineyLainey says:

                      It’s kind of a “release” to cuss. Like when no one’s home, I sometimes do it. “tmi”? oops. It’s really therapeutic. Cathartic, perhaps? If that word means what I think it means. try it.

                  • TexasTart says:

                    LOL Lainey! No cussing in my family at all…ever. Damnit was the extent of cussing I was exposed to..were I grew up, but then I left home and well some people I befriended were colorful in their descriptions and take on things. Luckily I have not been injured or had flames fly up towards my face in the presence of my immediate family…
                    Because I might not think before I vocalize.

            • TexasTart says:

              LOL at Pat! Well, just make sure you don’t accidentally unleash that on the husband!

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Brandi says it anywhere and everywhere. I wonder if she puts on airs and if she would ‘tsk tsk” at other people for doing the same. I doubt it, but who knows…. like would she be mad if Le cussed the way she does in front of her little guys? I wonder….

        • TexasTart says:

          Speaking of which…this tweet from today, I don’t know how these boys stand a chance….

          • LaineyLainey says:

            There are a lot of things I like about Brandi…her use of the f bomb is not one of them.

            • pat says:

              Agreed. Not to make excuses, but she’s going to be dealing with boys coming home to her after spending time in a “Brandi hostile” environment. LR has quite the potty mouth herself. (Caught on tape, and in her fake twitter account that attacked Brandi.) Just like Kyle, whatever you think about Brandi, I think she’s a good mom, and I would be surprised if she swears (beyond the typical occasional parental slip-up) around them. Brandi might be a little more free-spirited with her kids than the average parent, having grown up as she did, but so is Kyle. In season one, Kyle got her ‘kitty cat” waxed with not just Bravo cameras zooming in, but her children looking on.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                Right, I think at her core – she is a good mom. I loved how she was so chill about her kid peeing in the grass (instead of the pool)…while Kyle was having a kiniption. She just was not going to sweat the small stuff for the likes of the housewives. I have no memory of the kitty kat waxing. hmmmm….maybe I used too much brain bleach.

    • pat says:

      Ice, I saw your comment yesterday about the lack of pics of Eddie on LR’s twitter. I’m wondering if it’s because he doesn’t like that she’s on twitter so much, and so she limits pics of him on there, so as to not piss him off too much. Tho I think LR does whatever LR wants. Purely speculation.

      • kit9 says:

        I don’t know what she’s doing on Twitter but there are pics of them together in London. Saw them today so they are together.

        • iceNfire says:

          Hi kit9 – I guess I’m getting lazy, I get most of ‘The News’ from Twitter and this blog and hardly venture elsewhere these days 🙂

    • kit9 says:

      Brandi screeched STFU at someone out of nowhere while they were having a nice quiet dinner. Kyle cursed in the limo when she thought they were about to hit another car.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Out of nowhere = “Ahhhhh, somebody’s crying! Awwwww, SOMEbody’s Crying!!” (gravel, gravel)

        • TexasTart says:

          SHE started it!!!!

          • LaineyLainey says:

            I love threads like these. 🙂

            • TexasTart says:

              Now what was this thread about?!
              Better read up and see what I missed. 😛

              • LaineyLainey says:

                Oh, it’s just the well-dissected topic of Kyle’s foul mouth v. Brandi’s foul mouth. It just always leads to some funny comments. But I guess almost every topic here, leads to laughter.

                • TexasTart says:

                  I was joking around, but I did read up and find a funny story from you! The more laughter, the better. 🙂

                  BTW the”She started it” comment, was to sound like a child screaming at Adrienne, it not for ‘somebody’s crying’ over and over B would not have shut her down..

                  Don’t agree with her choice of.words, but considering how much I dislike Adrienne, it was funny.

        • kit9 says:

          Adrienne was trying to help, which Kim and everyone else knows. And she wasn’t cursing, disrupting the whole table. The best part was Brandi’s bashing Adrienne because was just bringing attention to poor crying Kim when the truth is most the table didn’t even know she was crying until Brandi dropped the F bomb. So, there’s the hypocrisy for you.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Oh, I didn’t realize you were serious about this. sorry, i find the whole thing humorous. I don’t find Adrienne’s comment helpful; I found it ridiculous and mocking…but that’s just my opinion. And for the record “STFU” wasn’t helpful either – i do see that. The whole thing was just the usual HW pseudo drama and it still cracks me up. I don’t think one is more hypocritical than the other. They’re all there to promote themselves and will say and do uncool things to be on camera, IMO. But if you want to say that Brandi is the bigger hypocrite, by your measurement, I respect that. I think it’s a tie; because it’s hard or impossible to truly measure that sort of thing, in my opinion. That scene, to me, was HW gold. Comedy gold. Well, except for poor Kim who was crying; but those Richards sisters do cry an awful lot, you have to admit. Well, no you don’t.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              That scene-The STFU scene set the stage for the entire season. Every time Brandi said something from that scene on-it was always someone else’s fault. Adrienne’s fault b/c she said..uh oh somebody’s crying…Kyle’s fault b/c she said…what happened with you and Adrienne…Mauricio’s fault b/c he said call Adrienne and apologize(which is funny b/c everyone said he was stupid but Brandi did contact Adrienne after all) ….Camilles fault b/c she brought up Adrienne….and so on

              • TexasTart says:

                …and Teresa’s fault because….oh wait, wrong franchise.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                It works for her…I guess it’s wise to stick with what works for you. She’s quite popular with the viewers; so all of the things you listed above have not hurt her popularity. Viewers seem to really like her, anyway. Even with all of those examples you listed. I don’t think I could get away with that. But then, I’m not 5’10 and 120 pounds – nor am I a former international model.

            • TexasTart says:

              🙂 It was HW gold.

    Just wanted to give a little warning here not sure if this type of thing is happening widespread or will make the news but my morher’s AOL email account was somehow hacked and her bank told her they received an email from her that she had wanted to withdraw some funds —–!!!!!

    Yes of course I told her like 6 years ago to go to gmail but she resisted. Now she has seen the light !
    It’s crazy, she got an email from a friend of hers and that was it ! So her friend got the virus first or whatever or however these things start.

    Will try to catch y’all later to hear any updates on the mystery of the Atlanta HWs host.

    But be safe if any of you still use or know anyone who uses, AOL.

      I hadn’t heard. I never liked AOL. I had it twice yrs ago when you would get it free for 3 mths or something. I hope her account & computer are ok.

      • Powell says:

        Kit this trial is never going to end. This week they only worked Wed & Thurs. Some days the judge ends early. She needs to be a task master like Judge Perry was. If they want to get into deliberation soon she needs to set M-F 9am-6pm. I don’t think court has been in on Friday’s at all.

    • kit9 says:

    If you go to Jillzy’s twitter timeline you will see a link from a interview that Jill opens her jewelry vault and they have pics of her pieces. Holy smokes. In the interview Jill says that she has lost or had some pieces stolen so Bawby thinks she is not worthy of expensive pieces anymore.She claims that is why she started her own jewelry line. Whaaatttt? wow if that is true why would she even mention Bawby said that. Some of her diamonds are pretty impressive. Makes you wonder if they are really hers. Sapphire and Diamond necklace similar to Liz Taylor’s emerald necklace. A diamond necklace with pear shape diamonds on the collar and a HUGE heart shape diamond pendant.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Hi AZgirl, I think a lot of that jewelry was costume and part of her “collection”. I am assuming her jewelry line is costume and not really precious stones. She is Jill Zarin after and not Neil Lane or Tiffany, I can’t see anyone shelling out big bucks for something she created.

      • AZGirl says:

        The watch was Cartier. I think the two necklaces mentioned above are her’s. The other stuff was from her own line.

        • BB says:

          I’m not positive, but didn’t Jill buy something that was put up for sale that once belonged to Liz Taylor? I might have dreamed it.

          • iceNfire says:

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              Yes, but it was some ugly ring with a not very precious stone. I think they paid 11k for it or something.

        You’re too catty, RR. I’m pretty sure most of JZ’s jewelry line is made using genuine cubic zirconias and not those cheap imitation cubic zirconias one sees so often.

      Glad it ended well! Ever see the movie Eight Below? It’s based on a true story. The real story didn’t have quite as great an outcome as the movie. But in the real scenario, two dogs from a team of Husky sled dogs survived on their own for a year, until they could be retrieved.

      • Nancy says:

        I haven’t seen it but I’m glad they were reunited with their owners. I can’t believe that
        these dogs traveled between 300-400 miles to find their humans. Amazing creatures they are.

    • Powell says:

      Is this the dog that traveled 300 miles? I just saw that. I’m amazed every time I hear dogs do that. I’m goad it was a happy ending. It’s kind of heart wrenching.

    Has everyone already seen this? it’s new to me http://bravoratings.com/housewives/

    • TexasTart says:

      That’s interesting, a comprehensive list of ratings over the years. I knew ATL was the big winner and BH was a million or so less viewers, but it was interesting to see each year….I like statistics though. What is stunning is that Vanderpump Rules out did Bethanny Ever After. Actually VPR ratings stunned me. I can only assume that over the years (since HW started) Bravo’s audience has grown a great deal.

    • The site is rumored to be run by Simon Van Kempen. Allegedly. A thorn in Andy’s side when RHONY had lower ratings after Alex was fired.

    Turned on the TV to a rebroadcast of last weeks Fashion Police and maybe you have to see it to gather how funny. A pic of Cher with Fergie, Joan critiquing their outfis is lol, but then Mellisa says “Doesn’t Fergie look like she’s Cher’s fantasy daughter?!” LOL!

    This is the episode that Kelly Osbourne had the seizure ..not on the episode, but after filming I guess…she seemed a little distracted throughout, but normal. I wonder what is up with that..all I know is she tweeted she had one and was getting a lot of tests in the hospital. She was released after approx. 4 days.

He is super nice and our family loves him…but when people ask him if he’s gay,..he’s says “I’m asexual; I love my self” Oh and he dates women. But my daughter laughs because he’s really into labels…he’ll say…That girl looks so sexy in those prada shoes. stuff like that.

    What is this thing about Andy not hosting Atlanta’s reunion? How did we find that out? Is it true, or just assumptions? If not Andy who? Bethenny!? 😀 Kathy? Or Cat? Lol i did not watch Atalnta AT ALL, for 2 seasons but i would watch the reunion if any of those three hosted the reunion 😛
