Caroline Suspects Al Cheated and Linda Thompson – Yolanda Foster Feud / Real Housewives of Vancouver / Duck Dynasty

Caroline Suspects Al Cheated and Linda Thompson – Yolanda Foster Feud by NoMoreDrama

No nonsense Caroline Manzo is out promoting her memoir, “Let Me Tell You Something” which is due out next Tuesday.  Something tells me this book won’t fly off the shelves like Brandi Glanville’s did last month.  Hollywood secrets versus New Jersey drama.  Hmmm.  In a surprisingly candid interview, Caroline lets out that she believes Al Manzo cheated on her – but none of his dalliances resulted in long-time affairs – so she’s okay with it.  Yup.  That’s what she pretty much said.  How sad for her and that perfect marriage she tries to show us on TV if he cheated on her when she was a young mother raising his children.  Click here for a link to the interview in The Daily News.

“I know the man I married. He’s a good man. But he’s a man. I don’t believe there were any long-term affairs. If that were the case, this story would end differently.  If something happened here or there along the way, it’s very possible. I have no inclination of that, but logic tells me …” the words drift off before she finishes the thought. “I can’t worry about 20 years ago.”

Caroline also talks about the challenges and opportunities that come from being on the Real Housewives of New Jersey.  While the opportunities the show has opened are “amazing … And the experience is incredible,” the downside is: “We’re targets. And there’s a valuable lesson in that for my children. Life is big. Life is tough. There’s adversity in anything you do. And you deal with it.  When someone calls your daughter fat, or the perception is that my sons are gay, or mama’s boys, at the end of the day it makes them stronger. But it’s not easy going through it.”   Hold the phone.  This coming from a woman that called her own daughter fat and a bitch on national TV??

Speaking of marriages, Yolanda Foster took a swipe at Linda Thompson on Monday’s episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.  Despite claiming that they get along great and everything is fine between David Foster’s current wife and his ex wife, Yolanda was caught on camera saying that Linda still wanted to sleep with her ex (and Yolanda’s husband) David.  Linda swiped back at Yolanda’s marriage on twitter.  Yolanda has been clear that she thinks David is her King and her role in the marriage is to take care of him.  Linda’s response:

linda1

Then a few tweets later, as if to explain the first swipe, she said:

linda2

Uh – then why did you take a swipe at Yolanda on twitter?  And finally to deal with the backlash she got on twitter …

Here’s a thought.  If you don’t want people to comment on your life, don’t go on a reality TV show or air your dirty laundry on twitter.

Real Housewives of Vancouver – Episode 6 – Cold Shoulders and Hot Butts Recap by NoMoreDrama

One week ago …

Last we left the Real Housewives of Vancouver, Jody had found out that she was going to be a guest on Top Chef Canada, and had invited Ronnie, Amanda, and Robin along.  There was no mention of inviting Ioulia, and she intentionally left out Mary.  The episode I’m about to recap aired last Tuesday and Ronnie was very active on twitter saying that she was FORCED by CONTRACT to go to Toronto, and hadn’t wanted to go AT ALL.  She claims she has PTSD because of the choking incident a year ago when Remy almost died.    As far as I’m concerned, she’s played the SICK CHILD card every single episode this season.  I hate to be mean, but I have to point out the obvious.  Ronnie knew that her child (Remy) had almost died when she CHOSE to sign up for Season 2 of Real Housewives.  It was clear from the Reunion that the ladies were on year to year contracts.  She has made it clear that she doesn’t need the money from the show, so if she really cared about not leaving Remy, why not break the contract, or not sign in the first place.  Rant over.  However, seeing as they are all under contract, the producers have to figure out some way to have Mary go to Toronto without Jody inviting her – so …

van 1Mary gets a call from her agent saying her media tour is about to start and she needs to be in Toronto in a few days (see how easy that was).  In real life this ladies would have other things to do – so it’s amazing they can clear their schedules for filming so easily.  Mary finds out that she’ll be performing her song, Hero, live on Global TV.  She voices over that she knows the other ladies will be in the same city, but she doubts she’ll see them.

This is the face of a freshman who's mom just told him that she's planning on dropping by without warning all year.

This is the face of a freshman who’s mom just told him that she’s planning on dropping by without warning all year.

Jody shows up in Toronto and drops in on her son unannounced (with cameras).  Her son is a freshman at Ryerson University and she’s already missing him, and hadn’t expected to see him until Canadian Thanksgiving (which is early October) so he’s probably only been away a few weeks.  She apparently dropped by his place and found out he wasn’t there, so was forced to find him.  At least he gets a few minutes to get ready.  He’s in a coffee shop.  She starts quizzing him about his dorm room – which I find strange.  Didn’t she help him move in? She asks him if he as all the amenities he needs because it is a dirty dirty world out there.  Is she talking about soap or condoms?  She says Mia can take him shopping and he laughs and says “Mia the dirty one.  That would really help.”  How is this young man related to Jody.  He seems so normal?

Robin and Mary get together to drink champagne and eat chocolate covered strawberries and celebrate their success at Thunderbird.  Mary tells Robin about Global TV wanting her to sing, and invites Robin to sing with her.  Wow – I didn’t see that coming.  With one swift move Mary has gotten Robin out of Jody’s evil grip and back on her side.

What is in that bun?

What is in that bun?

Rolling her eyes!

Rolling her eyes!

Ronnie is up next.  She’s shown jetting off to Toronto with her two sons.  I have to wonder why they aren’t in school when Jody’s son is.  And if she’s taking them, why not take Remy?  Amanda, with the most amazing bun on her head, voices over that her sister lives in Toronto and she’s looking forward to catching up with her.   Ronnie, who still claims to be Mary’s friend, voices over (with a roll of her eyes) that Robin isn’t traveling with them anymore, she’s going to Toronto with Mary to become a professional back-up singer.  Right – because that’s less important than being a friend to a guest judge on Canadian Top Chef.  I really don’t understand how Ronnie and Mary were ever best friends.

Amanda meets up with her sister Denise.  Her sister is the Ass Lady (flashbacks to Seinfeld) and works in the plastic surgery field.  Amanda wants a whole lotta work done including getting her foo foo fixed (she should talk to Brandi) and having a butt lift (maybe she should buy Phaedra and Kenya’s videos first and see if they work.)

Practice in the hotel room.

Practice in the hotel room.

The other three head off to Toronto.  Three because they’ve invited Ioulia, because what’s a party without Ioulia? (I guess they ran out of excuses).  After getting to Toronto Mary has to find some backup musicians.  She practices with Donna, a guitarist and things are going great.  Robin shows up with Ioulia.  Robin harmonizes as Mary sings.  Ioulia gives them feedback, telling Robin to sing louder.  Mary laughs it off in her voice over – because no one hearing Robin is just fine with her.

The presence of Hannah makes Mia and Jody bearable.

Jody is in bed with her little girl Hannah reading fashion magazines.  Mia stumbles in, hungover as usual, with a tray full of covered food.  They blindfold Jody and give her a taste test of desserts.  Hannah is so adorable.  She gets to feed her mom.  Then when the taste test is over, Mia and Hannah play fight to eat the desserts.  They all look fabulous to me.

Top Chef Canada.  Who knew?

Top Chef Canada. Who knew?

Jody begins taping the dessert episode of Top Chef Canada.  We learn that EVERYTHING is scripted, including where they stand and where they look.  It looks like Jody is the judge of a quickfire (if they use the same format as our Top Chef).  After tasting all the desserts, they say good luck and they’ll see the chef’s tomorrow.  Hmmm – no winner?

Mary does well.  Along with Kandi Burruss, she a housewife that can actually sing.

Mary does well. Along with Kandi Burruss, she a housewife that can actually sing.

Meanwhile across town Mary is singing live (to a track) for Global TV.  After a rocky start she does a great job.  Robin does well and even Ioulia approves.  Ioulia is a great friend to have around – no nonsense but positive.  As far as branding goes – I think this is the fifth time I’ve heard Mary sing Hero (once last season and now four times this season already).

If you haven’t seen her sing it, here it is on youtube.

I spared you a close up of Amanda's butt.  They showed it many times.

Back to the other three ladies.  Amanda has invited Jody and Ronnie to get butt lifts at her sister’s place.  Great branding Amanda.  Ronnie is a little off-put by the short skirt the “consultant” is wearing as she explains what they could do for the ladies.  Ronnie would rather have them work on her abs than her butt, and Jody wants her face done.  Jody thinks her butt is perfect.  My guess is neither Ronnie or Jody want their butts shown on national TV.  Amanda’s is highlighted several times, and let’s just say I think Kenya and Phaedra have some competition.  Finally the owner of the business invites the ladies to a cocktail party at his house, in a very rehearsed, stilted way.

This is the last drama free scene of the episode.

This is the last drama free scene of the episode.

Mary, Ioulia, and Robin continue their day with a fancy lunch.  They start off by cheering to a successful morning.  Then we get to see them actually eat – is this a housewives show?  Ioulia follows instructions and calls Amanda in the middle of their lunch.  Amanda acts surprised to find out they are also in Toronto.  She makes a dig at them – asking if they flew coach while she flew business (maybe she was wondering if they were stuffed in the back of the plane.)  Ioulia asks if they want to get together, and Amanda invites them to dinner that night.  Ioulia makes sure Mary is invited and Amanda says okay (but voices over that as soon as she invited them she regretted it).  Ioulia hangs up and is mad about the flying coach dig.

The house is over the top.

The house is over the top.

They head to dinner/cocktails at Dominic (the owner of the spa) and Joanne’s place.  I wonder if they are about to launch a Real Housewives of Toronto and are doing a cross-over.  That’s what it feels like.  They have an amazing home – over the top.  There is lots of money in Toronto.  Dominic compliments Amanda’s butt, and acts skeezy.  His wife looks on and laughs.  No Kyle Richards here.

Amanda's breasts could have their own show.

Amanda’s breasts could have their own show.

The other three ladies arrive and Amanda pulls Robin aside to gossip about Ioulia.  Robin can barely hold a conversation because she’s distracted by Amanda’s breasts that are about to pop out of her dress.   Amanda thinks Ioulia is rude, so on cue Ioulia confronts her about the flying coach comment.

Mia is serious about partying at a stranger's home.

Mia is serious about partying at a stranger’s home.

Mia and a gaggle of friends show up to the party.  Mia is wearing a very short dress, and announces that she can hear her mom the second she walks in.  Mia immediately gets serious about partying.  How old is she?

Creepy Dominic makes the ladies do birthday vodka shots.  Jody declines and says she’s not drinking.  Amanda tells Mary that she’s not being a good friend to Ronnie by drinking in front of her (at a cocktail party).  She explains that Jody never drinks in front of her.  This is said as Mia, Jody’s daughter and Amanda’s good friend, is getting wasted in the background. What BS.  If Ronnie has a problem with it, let her say so.  Otherwise leave them alone.  They are at a cocktail party where everyone is drinking!

Mary says that Ronnie is not an alcoholic.  It’s another white lie.  Ronnie looks like she’d rather they not have this conversation in front of her.  Jody voices over that she doesn’t see how Mary can say that Ronnie doesn’t have a drinking problem.  She is basically calling Mary out for defending Ronnie.  Of course Mary is only saying this because last season Ronnie was really upset that Mary practically outed her as an alcoholic – so Mary is very careful not to go there this season.  Jody starts to tell Mary that she’s fake and the worst person she’s ever met, and that she’s being fake by sitting beside Ronnie because Ronnie doesn’t like her half the time, and she says bad things about Mary.  Isn’t Ronnie just as fake then??  Mia is in the background faking pretending to vomit.  What a pair the two Claman girls make.

Mary apologizes to the host.  Now Jody sits back down and calls Mary a bully.  They banter back and forth and Mary tells Jody to look after her very drunk daughter.  Jody calls Mary an awful person.  She says she’s a disgusting human being and she can’t believe Mary would come to this party and that it isn’t her demographic.  I’m waiting for her to say “I’m up here and you’re down there.”  All the while her daughter is behaving like an ass at the party, and all Mary was doing was sitting down and chatting.  It feels as though Jody knows she has to bring the drama for ratings.  Mary points out the obvious that Jody is delusional.

Now Ronnie decides to have her moment and announce that she can’t take the stress anymore.  Ronnie then lays into Mary for fighting with Jody, while Robin points out that Jody was the one that started it.  Ronnie is slurring as she tells Mary “you want to extradite yourself from all your lies, and I’m here to tell you, …”  Mary interrupts and asks if Ronnie has been drinking.  THIS MOMENT WAS THE NAIL IN THE COFFIN FOR THEIR FRIENDSHIP. NEVER, NEVER ACCUSE RONNIE OF BEING DRUNK ON CAMERA.  In Mary’s defense, it sure looks like Ronnie’s drunk (she gets mean when she’s drunk) but she claims she’s having a panic attack.  Now I understand what all the tweets were about.  Ronnie then falls apart on Ioulia’s shoulder and leaves crying..  Amanda has a dumbstruck look on her face.

And the party ends when the naked man falls into the pool.

And the party ends when the naked man falls into the pool.

While this is going on Jody is having a great time at the party.  She voices over that the women at the party are from HER demographic – rich and successful business women.  On the other side of the party, as soon as Ronnie leaves sobbing telling the world how mean Mary is to her, Amanda sits down beside Mary and tells her that she’s not authentic.  Didn’t they just meet?  Mary finds it hard to take her seriously with her boobs about to fall out of her dress.  Amanda voices over that the really irritating thing about Mary is that she lets on that she’s perfect (with all her little white lies).  I can see that bugging the others, but that doesn’t excuse Jody and Ronnie’s behavior.  Robin agrees with Amanda, even though she loves Mary.  Mary gets up to leave, but is distracted by a naked man falling into the pool.  As the skinny dipping starts, some of the other ladies decide it’s time to leave.  But, as Amanda is leaving she overhears Ioulia talking to Robin, complaining about her.  A heated fight between Ioulia and Amanda finishes off the evening.  Next week promises more tears from Ronnie and Mary as they realize their relationship is over.

Duck Dynasty by Stars99

(all photos are screen shots)

Catching-Up:  Our favorite duck guys are back in action!  They have received a lot of attention since December’s Christmas show garnered 6.5 million viewers to become A & E’s most watched telecast ever!  They’ve also caused some controversy after originally being scheduled to appear earlier this month on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” along with British singer and animal rights activist Morrissey.  After finding out they were going to appear with him on the show, Morrissey canceled his appearance calling the duck guys “animal serial killers.”  Kimmel had the guys on anyway, because well, in his words with his tongue firmly planted against his cheek, “they have guns.” Duck Dynasty premiered this month to an audience of 8.6 million viewers (zap2it.com).  I am an animal lover. I hate guns. I love to laugh. I love Duck Dynasty.  While it’s true they hunt and fish in accordance with the law – they absolutely hunt for food and not for sport. Although they have millions of dollars and some of them live in the suburbs – they continue to exhibit a love for nature, gratefulness for what they have, and incredibly funny perspectives on life.  I am playing a little catch-up to recapping this season… remember they play back-to-back episodes each week.  If you missed seasons 1 or 2 – never fear, A & E often runs marathons of them.  Below are the recaps for Season 3’s first 3 episodes.  Let’s first reacquaint ourselves with who’s who in the zoo:

Phil Robertson – Is inventor of the Duck Commander® Duck Call, is founder of the Duck Commander company, and is known as THE Duck Commander throughout Louisiana. He married his high school sweetheart, Miss Kay, and together they’ve raised four sons, three of whom (Willie, Jase, and Jep) are featured prominently on the show.  They are a fun, frisky couple and it’s really great to see them completely love and adore each other.

Willie Robertson – Is the current CEO of Duck Commander and is Phil’s son. As a visionary, he took a small, home-based business and catapulted it into a multi-million dollar venture.  He is often teased about being a managerial kinda guy who has gone yuppie on them.  He is married to Korie and they have five children.  Korie helped Willie build the company and she is currently the office manager.

Jase Robertson – Is Willie’s brother, is in charge of the manufacturing portion of the company and is completely hysterical.  He is often the pied piper who distracts the other workers from working.  He suggests doing things like pulling pranks on Willie, playing basketball, building a conveyor belt from scratch with materials they have on hand, and racing turtles when an important decision has to be made. However, when his back is against the wall, he can be counted on to work hard to get the job done.  Jase has been married to Missy for 21 years and they have three children.

Jep Robertson – Is Phil and Kay’s youngest son and enjoys all the benefits that being the youngest brings.  He loves to flaunt the fact that Miss Kay seems to really cater to his every need.  He’s really the quiet brother – but he is always up for a good prank.  He is married to Jessica and they have four kids.

Si Robertson – Is Phil’s brother and his best friend.  Si is also really amazingly funny.  Si also kind of works for the company, but like everyone else, is easily distracted. He is a Vietnam vet who loves to tell stories. Si still drinks ice tea every day from a blue plastic cup that he always keeps in his back pocket that his mom sent to him while he was serving in the military overseas.  He is married but it is rarely mentioned on the show.

 

Others:  Martin and Godwin are Duck Commander employees who often accompany the guys wherever they go – especially when it gets them out of work.

 

Duck Season Eve

This episode starts at Duck Commander Headquarters with Jase christening a brand new duck call with his spittle.  Evidently, Duck Season starts tomorrow and they’re all way too excited for words.  Jase explains, “Duck Season Eve to us is kinda like Christmas Eve to city folk…. Ho ho ho…” How many ducks are they going to kill?  Jase is gonna kill the limit of six…while Si thinks he’s gonna kill million – 6 legally and the rest just with his icy stare.  According to their tradition, the night before Duck Season they rough it in the great outdoors.  Jase says they’re going to “show nature who’s still in charge.” According to Jase, Willie has lost what makes him a man because he doesn’t like to rough it anymore.  Si says, “Willie’s idea of “roughing it” is opening a garage door manually.  Jase says, “Willie’s idea of “roughing it” is having the wrong comfort setting on a sleep number bed.”  Si and Jase continue to jab back and forth about Willie’s inability to rough it… Si says, “Watching a DVD instead of a blue ray.” Jase says, “Having to unload his dishwasher because Korie’s out of town.”  Si says, “Having a showerhead that only has 3 massage settings.”  Jase says, “Having to actually walk.”  Jase also insists that Willie isn’t the camping type anymore cuz he has begun to go to coffee shops.  Huh?  Si decides to use his icy stare on Willie so that all the workers can get an extra day off from work!  At first it doesn’t work… but Willie quickly gives in and the workers have the rest of Duck Season Eve off. As they’re leaving, Si says, “It’s on like bing-bong, Jack!”

Jase says there are two good traditions that make him ready for Duck Hunting Season.  No bathing for a week before it starts and roughing it the night before. It just puts him in the right frame of mind.  Somehow, he feels that it makes “a declaration that they are lords of the wilderness.”  Jase reminisces about how his dad, Phil, went 60 days without bathing or changing his socks and underwear during Duck Hunting Season.  But Phil has decided that he would much rather camp in the comfort of his own home with Miss Kay rather than to go camp with the guys this year.  Phil says that Miss Kay is gonna be his sleeping bag.

Eve - SiAs the guys start to put their gear in the truck for their camping adventure… Si is chagrined at the amount of stuff each is taking.  One guy even brings a full-sized pillow.  Gasp!  Si says, “These boys, they have enough stuff in their trucks that they could survive a zombie nuclear apocaliss (apocalypse).”  He further clarified, “They might survive the zombies, cuz they’re not much to eat when it comes to brains.”  Jase explains that it’s hard to listen to Si’s long winded stories cuz it’s hard to separate what part is fact and what is just filler.  Si insists that his stories are so long, cuz you have to let them develop. Si says, “It’s like a good roll… you got to let the dough rise.  You look here, these kids today don’t know the value of a good story, you have to have a beginning, middle, and an end.

All of the sudden they hear honking… and it’s Willie driving a honkin’ RV to where they are camping and Jase is just plain embarrassed.  “Once you bring something with wheels and it’s enclosed, you’re no longer camping… you’re parking.”  Jase insists that they’re trying to rough it and doesn’t understand why Willie brought the RV.  Willie insists he is roughing it – since he doesn’t have any cell phone service.  Jase thinks Willie yuppyism is killing his wild spirit.  Jep asks Willie if he has an X-Box in the RV.  Jase implores Willie to act like a man and, “Use your beard for more than a decoration.”  Jep decides to go along with Willie to the RV and Jase insists that Jep needs to surrender his man-card, and that he needs to shave his face.  Jase mourns the fact they’ve lost their adventurous spirit. Eve-oversleep

Inside the RV, Willie tries to initiate a conversation with Jep, but Jep’s too busy playing FIFA soccer on the X-Box.  Willie just blankly looks at the screen.  Willie insists he is enjoying nature while in the comfort of his RV and is looking forward to talking with Jep – but Jep is so engrossed in his video game that he can only respond to Willie’s comments and questions with a monosyllabic “Yes” to everything Willie says.  The guys who are still actually outside in the great outdoors trying to “rough it” are having issues with mosquitos.  As Si says, “Hey, these mosquitos down here in Louisiana are so big, that when you slap em, hey, you better knock ‘em out cuz if you don’t … hey, they’re gonna slap you right back, Jack.”  The guys are wondering why the mosquitos aren’t bugging Si – they surmise it’s because he’s old and tough.  Si says it’s because of bug spray.  Si says when you go in the woods, “Rule #1 – Bring plenty of bug spray.”  Si has many rules about going into the woods… it gets confusing cuz he refers to each of these various rules as “Rule #1.”

Back at Miss Kay’s and Phil’s house, Phil wants to initiate tradition #2 of Duck Hunting Season (he hasn’t said what tradition #1 is – unless it’s the no bathing tradition).  Miss Kay wants nothing of that – since Phil smells really ripe.   Miss Kay loves traditions because it’s usually about cooking and making memories.  However, she says that Phil smells like a landfill – and tells him if he wants some loving tonight that Phil is going to have to take a trip to the shower. Phil asks her if she’s trying to make him an offer he can’t refuse.

Back at the campsite, you hear a gunshot with Jase shouting “Si! What are you doing?”  Si explains he was shooting at a snake that had reared its ugly head out from a hollow log… Si says, “You never go into the woods without bringing a pistol – that’s Rule #1.  As Si continues to shoot into this hollow log, Jase wonders if Si has ever heard of the term “ricochet” but Si disregards the idea of a bullet coming back at him as being just a superstition.  The happy campers are really hungry and they decide they need some sausage.  They know that Phil has a whole lot of sausage in his freezer that they could use.  Si immediately volunteers to go get it for them.  Si says, “Hey, look here, you always gotta have your campin’ buddies’ backs – Yo hey, that’s Rule #1 in the woods – Have your buddies’ back.”  While they were initially surprised that Si wanted to leave – but then they figured they couldn’t blame him.

At Phil and Miss Kay’s house, they are still talking about his tradition #2 of having sex before duck hunting.  Phil quotes a Biblical passage about a husband should not withhold his husbandly duties – Miss Kay fires back about how cleanliness is next to godliness.  Si walks in because he’s there to get the sausage for his camping buddies.  Phil and Miss Kay invite Si to join them for their dinner of jambalaya in their nice, cozy home.  Of course, Si decides to join them.  Phil wonders if the guys back at camp would be okay with him sitting there with them eating while the others are all roughing it.  Si decides, what the boys don’t know won’t hurt them.

Eve - RV2Willie comes down from his comfy RV to talk to the guys at the campsite and tempts them with a bowl of fettuccini… Jase thinks it basically comes down to 2 choices… “Stay at the campfire and be a man, or go to the Girl Scout meeting in the RV.”  Godwin decides he wants some fettuccini and decides to go with Willie back up to the RV. There are only two guys who are really roughing it left – but they console themselves with the fact that Si should be back with their sausage from Phil’s house any time now.  Unbeknownst to them, as Si started to leave Miss Kay and Phil’s house to go back to the campsite, he is inexplicably sucked into the vortex that is the comfy couch.  Si reasons that by now the guys are so hungry, they’re probably eating the bark off the trees – and he decides he doesn’t want any of that.  He decides he’s gonna lay down just for a minute to rest his eyes.  Si says, “Rule #2 of camping is that you gotta lay down and digest – wait, that’s the first rule, I always get those two mixed up.”

Back at camp, Jase and Martin have resorted to eating “Mallow dogs” – which are toasted marshmallows inserted into a hot dog bun.  Jase says that, “Necessity is the mother of invention – and necessity gave birth to an abomination deemed “The Mallow Dog.”  In the tent, Jase tells Martin that he stinks – and Martin agrees and says it’s the first time in a long time that he can even smell himself.  Jase thinks this has been one of the toughest “roughing it” sessions that they’ve ever had – but they’re sticking it out despite the “aroma of death” that’s permeating their tent.  Jase and Martin start trying to figure out just how many “Mallow Dogs” each of them ate.  They know there were 2 packs of hot dog buns with 8 buns in each pack and they only have 4 left.  So 16 – 4 = 12… So that’s a dozen they ate together.  Martin asks Jase how many Mallow Dogs he had – and Jase says “Two.”  That means that Martin had 10 Mallow Dogs.  Jase just thinks that’s pretty impressive.  Martin finally decides he’s had enough of this crappy camping experience and decides to leave Jase alone at the campsite and to join the others in the RV.  Jase says, “Fine, leave – go frolic around with the other Girl Scouts…Actually, I will not compare these men to Girl Scouts because I’m offending Girl Scouts across America.”

Eve-Phil TowelBack at Phil and Miss Kay’s… Miss Kay is putting a blanket over the deeply sleeping Si.  Phil comes out of the shower drying himself off with a towel.  Miss Kay takes one look at him her eyebrows raise and she immediately starts to take off her apron.  With a twinkle in her eye she says, “And that ladies, is how it’s done.”

You hear a rooster crowing when Si and Phil come down to the happy campers in the RV.  Everyone is sleeping in… Phil thinks they’re a bunch of lazy birds.  Si insists he didn’t sleep a wink last night – but we have footage of his snoring ways.  Phil starts shooting a shotgun off into the air to be their alarm clock.  Si says, “You snoozin’ sissies come out of there and let’s go do some duck huntin’.”  Phil says he’s been on the earth for 66 years and has never known a group of men to sleep through the opening day of duck season, ever!  Jase comes back – he’s already been to the duck blind to get it ready. He calls the deserters, “An RV overflowing with the equivalent of Girls Scouts who have eaten too many cookies.”  Jase says, “The tradition is hunting; if we were going to start a tradition about hibernating, I’d hang out with you all.”  Willie wants to know if he can drive the RV down to the duck blind, everyone shouts “No.”

Willie’s epilogue:  “Here at the Robertson family, we have many annual traditions – like Duck Season’s Eve, camping, and not bathing in preparation for it – unless you’re Si, where not bathing is a daily tradition. But sometimes keeping a tradition can keep you growing as a family.  For instance, an RV is a great update on camping – just make sure you pack an alarm.  Another good twist on tradition is to use soap when… well, never mind… in the end it doesn’t matter how traditions evolve as long as they bring the family together.”

Can’t Hardly Wait

Wait-Willie HSThis episode begins with Korie being excited that Willie’s high school reunion is coming up.  Willie thinks the Reunion is a great time to show off how successful you are… how smoking hot your wife is…  and how little hair you’ve lost.  He’s looking forward to it… Jase doesn’t think it’s a big deal cuz he didn’t go to his – he went frog hunting instead.  Jase shares his perspective on high school reunions, “If I haven’t contacted you in the last twenty years – there’s probably a reason for that.”   Korie, Willie and Jase begin looking at high school pictures of Willie.  Jase compares the picture with the Willie that’s standing in front of him, points at the picture and says, “This looks like a kid.  Now, you look like the Sasquatch who ate this guy.”  Willie insists that all he’s done is grown a beard… Jase thinks that Willie has put on a “hondo” or a hundred pounds.  Korie insists she likes a man with a little meat on his bones and Jase assures her that she’s hit the jackpot.  Willie ponders Korie’s words and decides, “I like a man with a little meat on his bones – is just a polite way of saying ‘You’re fat.’”  Jase thinks the dimples Willie use to have in high school, “Went from his upper cheeks, to his lower cheeks.”  Like a good brother, Jase tells Willie that he should get ready for the fat jokes.

Si, Phil and Jase are hunting doves, and Jase calls them, “The filet mignon of the sky.”   Jase is a dove addict and is unapologetic.  Si says, that opening day of dove season is not a competition, “But I’m fixin’ to show these boys what it sounds like a dove cries. (obscure Prince reference).”  They each have dogs sitting next to them… but Si’s isn’t moving an ounce.  They deduce Si’s dogs don’t like him.   Si wonders why his dog is just sitting there because after all… Si says, “Why do you think we have the term, ‘Working like a dog?’”  Si’s dog just wants to play… Phil and Jase are laffin’ at his dog.

Wait - Willie JacketBack at Korie and Willie’s house… Willie tries on a brown coat that Korie recently purchased for him and it doesn’t fit.  He explains it’s because she buys them at these boutique stores and they’re not the same sizes as you get in other stores.  Willie is distressed that he can’t do some of his dance moves with his coat on.  Korie suggests that if he wants to lose a couple of pounds that he should go with her to yoga class.  Willie says that’s what men call “stretching.”

Si decides he needs to get a real hunting dog that fits his personality.  “Well groomed handsome, and one that doesn’t mind taking a nap once in a while.   Since Miss Kay loves dogs, she decides she’s gonna go with Si to help him pick one out.  Jase thinks that Si scares dogs.  Jase said, “The last dog that we got, the first thing the dog did was to bite Si right on the wrist.  I mean Si scares humans, too – but they just don’t bite him.”  Jase suggests that they try to find a dog with a screw loose so it matches his master.

Wait - Si DogMiss Kay and Si go off to find Si a good hunting dog.  They agree they want to find a dog that doesn’t look like him, but one that has the same kind of attitude as he does.  Si doesn’t think you should have a dog that thinks he’s the king of the hill or thinks he’s too fancy for the kind of work that you want him to do, “Or the next thing you’ll know you’ll both be getting matching pedicures.”  Miss Kay says Si needs to learn to bond with the dogs.  Miss Kay has a real way with dogs.  Si thinks it’s because she’s the cook and the dogs are smart enough to always bond with the cook.  Miss Kay thinks it’s not always easy to match a dog with someone’s personality.  Miss Kay says in Si’s case, you’d need one that is, “Old, cranky, mangy, lazy, stinky…”

Jase decides he’s gonna help Willie lose some weight cuz… so they commence “Operation Little Willie.” Willie is chopping firewood while all the other guys are sitting around watching him.  “You’ve got to harness the power of the gut, ” Jase tells Willie.  Martin says, “Use inertia to your benefit.” Willie wants to know why he is cutting Jase’s firewood.  Jase insists that it’s because he’s training him to be in shape. Jase says, “The greatest lesson that I learned in hauling firewood… is if you can find someone else to do it, DO IT!”  Jase said, “If you don’t get in shape, you’re gonna be the BUTT of all jokes.”  Jep joked, “I sure hope that ax doesn’t slip and hit you in the gut – cuz all that gravy is gonna come out.”  Jase says, “Every time you back up – we want the beeping to stop.”  Willie grunts back at them, “How is insulting me going to help me lose weight?”  Jase insists that they’re motivating him.  Willie is giving the concept of going to a gym a second thought because anything has GOT to be better than this!  Jase doesn’t understand why people who go to a gym get up on a stationary bike… He reasons, “Why?  Cuz you’re not going anywhere.”  He motions to the great outdoors and describes it as “God’s gym.”  Jase says, “When I’m working out… I’m working OUT (as in outdoors.)”  Willie walks off and Jase tenderly reminds him that the wood still needs stacking.  As he takes a big swig of tea, Jep says, “No, I’m busy – this tea isn’t gonna drink itself.”

Meanwhile… Willie begrudgingly goes to Korie’s Yoga class.  After that day of chopping wood with Jase, he’s looking for a more relaxing way to get into shape.  “What can I say, when the going gets tough, the tough strap on camo tights.” As Willie is trying to do “downward dog”… he says, “This ain’t nothing like a dog – If a dog does this, he’s sick.”  Willie says they should give these yoga positions names that reflect more what they actually do, like “Spine snapper”… or “Wheelchair bound”… or “Humanly impossible.”  Willie exhaustingly says, “I’m about to make my own new pose, ‘Dying fat man’.”  Just as the whole class is on their backs with their legs spread eagled in the air with their hands holding their feet, Willie and Korie’s daughter walks in with Willie’s dad, Phil… Phil takes one look at Willie, shakes his head, and says, “Danger… what has happened to my boy?  Yuppies…”

Meanwhile… back at the hunting field… Si is there with Jase, Phil and Si’s new dog.  It’s a poodle!  Jase and Phil are giving him a hard time about having such a fancy looking dog with a fancy haircut while hunting.  Si says that poodles don’t give a rat’s behind about what other people think about them… just like Si.   Jase says poodles are for older women and royalty… and Si tells them to just call him “Prince.”  Now, this makes me laff… because earlier in the episode, Si makes an obscure “Prince” reference… coincidence?  I think not… lololol… dies laffin’…  The poodle does his job expertly… and Phil says he’s never going to say another bad thing about poodles as long as he lives.

Wait - Willie JacketNow’s the time for the big unveiling of Willie’s new physique… he’s been on a strenuous exercise program.  It’s the moment of truth to see if the jacket fits… and lo and behold it does!  Willie is convinced that hard work and dedication pays off.  Ummm… I’m not gonna mention that the originally brown-looking jacket looks miraculously black now… Then Korie cops to buying a jacket in a larger size.
Back at Miss Kay and Phil’s house, Miss Kay was cooking again… as Phil looks longingly into the pot, he says, “That would make a hound dog hug a kitty cat on a frosty morning.”

Willie’s epilogue:  “Sometimes when you look back on where you started in life you feel nostalgic.  Other times you feel you need to lose 20 or 30 pounds.  It’s easy to make excuses for some of the mistakes you’ve made along the way, but ultimately, if you want to change, the weight is on your shoulders – or belt.  I guess I’m just grateful that I have my family to help me reach my goals, even if that involves fat jokes or camo tights.”

Shot Thru the Heart

Shot-TurpentineThe episode starts with Miss Kay trying to clean off a sticky substance off her countertop.  Phil’s suggestion is to use turpentine.  Miss Kay is saying that it’s not paint but Phil insists that turpentine can be used to remove many, many things, like:  varnishes, paints, rust, stains, rabies, scabies… and Phil thinks it’s time to use it on larger projects – He thinks the whole country needs a good turpentine cleaning and he wants to “start with Hollyweird and move towards New York City…”  Willie comes over and tells his parents they have a date on Saturday with a famous pet photographer – Seth Casteel (NY Times bestselling author) – who is as Willie says, “kind of a big deal.”  Willie gave the photo session as a gift to his mom for her last birthday but she still hadn’t previously made a date for the session.  Phil thinks that a pet photographer is the degree you get when you were rejected from a degree in aromatherapy… Phil sighs, “America.”

Willie’s son, John Luke has broken up with his girlfriend.  Korie is worried that John Luke is probably crushed.  Meanwhile, at Duck Commander Headquarters, Jase is just hanging up the phone saying, “It’s an honest mistake.”  Evidently, a customer called because he said something was seriously wrong with his duck call.  After a series of questions, Jase figured out that the guy was blowing in the wrong end of the duck call.  Everyone has a good laugh at that one!  Willie walks into the workroom and announces that John Luke broke up with his girlfriend and Willie’s not sure what to say to him.  Jase says that whenever he got “wounded” at his age that he would go into the woods to soothe his soul.  Willie reminds Jase that he spent a whole lot of time in the woods.  Willie admonishes the guys not to say anything to John Luke so he doesn’t get embarrassed.

Seth, the pet photographer shows up to Kay and Phil’s house and the first thing that Phil said was, “How’d you get your hair to stand up like that?”  Seth tells him it took a whole lot of hair spray.  Phil then comments on Seth’s not one, but two watches… and grunts when Seth tells him that neither one of them actually work – but that he wears them mainly for fashion. Seth says he loves animals.  Phil says he loves animals too, “They’re delicious.”  Seth is aghast.  Phil says, “One thing for sure is that Seth is not from around here.” Seth says he wants to do a really nice family shot and them some individual “personality” shots of the dogs.  Phil looks at the dogs and thinks they don’t have much personality. Seth just nervously laughs.  Miss Kay asks Phil how her hair looks… and Phil picks up the hose and suggests a wet t-shirt for the photo shoot. Gotta love their spunk!

Shot-AdviceJase, Jep, and Si are out in the woods about to meet up with Willie and John Luke to do some manly stuff to provide salve to help heal John Luke’s broken heart.  Jase clues Si in about John Luke’s breakup and admonishes him not to say anything cuz John Luke is shy about talking about stuff like that.  Si promises not to say a word.  Right… When pigs fly!  Sure enough, the minute Si sees John Luke he mentions the breakup.  John Luke looks at his dad and asks if that’s why they’re out in the woods?  Willie at first says of course not… no… not even… well… ummm… yeah, well maybe… yes.  Willie says that John Luke is clearly distraught.  John Luke tries to assure them he’s fine.

Seth is encouraging Phil and Kay to act candidly for their photo shoot.  Seth likes that Phil brought a prop – but Phil quickly tells him that, “It’s no prop – it’s a gun, Seth.”  The dogs (JJ and Bo Bo) are growling at Seth.  Seth is really trying to capture Phil and Miss Kay’s personality.  Miss Kay is smiling and waving but Phil is just kinda looking really bored.  Seth encourages Phil to look “happy” – Phil tells him, “This IS my happy.”  They’re taking pictures of Miss Kay and Phil in the truck with the dogs.  Seth wonders if they can position the dogs to look like they’re driving.  Phil responds with an, “Um, no.”  Miss Kay pretends to be waving at people and Phil just wonders why he’s there at all.  Phil sums it all up and says, “Boy, ain’t this a fun time?”

The guys are walking through the woods, rifles in hand, and giving John Luke girlfriend advice.  Jase says, “There are six billion people in the world.  Assume half of them are women – then there’s three billion to choose from.” Willie quickly corrects Jase, “But that doesn’t mean that all of them are available for him,” They decide that some of them are too old or too young.  Jase reasons, “So okay, maybe 2 billion are available.”  Willie keeps correcting Jase, so Jase goes down to one billion… Willie says, “No, five hundred million.” Jase thinks that John Luke still has it better than he did when he was his age – cuz he figures he only had about 200,000 – 300,000 women to choose from, if that.  Willie’s concerned they’re going to raise John Luke’s hopes if he believes that there are that many girls are available for him.  Jase tells John Luke that the Robertson men are not the chasers, they’re the chasees.

Back at the photo shoot, Phil points his rifle into a tree and hits a squirrel.  Seth’s mouth drops wide open.  Seth says, “Is that safe?”  Phil replies to him, “For the squirrel, not so much.”  Fortunately, Seth has brought some organic treats to get the dogs’ attention – Phil says they already have their own organic treats.  Seth decides to rake up some leaves so they can do an autumn action shot with the dogs.  Phil encourages him to rake up a big pile.  Phil suddenly sees value in this photo shoot – his yard is getting raked.  Unfortunately, the dogs don’t want to run through the piles of leaves and instead run around them.  Seth looks bewildered.  Phil explains that where they live, dogs stay clear of piles of leaves cuz snakes live in them.  Phil suggests raking up some more piles of leaves to see if the dogs run around them, too.

Shot - ReclinerAfter a long day of photo shooting they’re back at the house, and looking through the pictures they took that day.  Seth doesn’t really feel they really captured a good picture of Phil and the dogs.  Phil is sitting in his recliner… and Bo Bo is sitting on the top of the back of the chair and is looking the window.  Phil explains he’s his lookout cuz he alerts him when he sees people come driving up the road.  Seth gets a brilliant idea.  The next thing you see is a portion of their family room re-created in the middle of the woods:  Phil is sitting in his recliner with the two dogs in his lap, a lamp sitting next to it, a rug underneath it, and Miss Kay standing right next to him holding a pecan pie.  Perfecto!

Back in the forest, the guys are still trying to help John Luke get over his heartache. Willie says, “It’s like the sea, there’s tons of fish in the sea.”  Si says that he’s right, “There’s blue fin tuna, there’s yellow fin tuna, hey, there are plenty of fish in the sea – barracudas, hey mackerels, snapper, swordfish, catfish, perch… there’s sharks, sushi, cop, corn, hammerhead sharks, bull crabs, sting rays, manna rays, gama rays, hey… Ray-ban…” Willie interjects that they don’t need to name all the fish in the sea.  Si goes on to mention fried shrimp – Jase objects cuz they’re not fried in the sea.  With all this talking about fish – Si got himself hungry.  Willie is glad that Si came along cuz kids learn by example and, “Si is a glaring example of what you never want to be if you ever want a woman to talk to you.  Ever.” The guys tell John Luke that they care. The head back home and you hear Si singing, “Shot through the heart, girl you give love a bad name.”

Miss Kay brings out the final framed pet picture for Phil to look at… he concedes the photo shoot went better than he thought.  The guys show up to Miss Kay and Phil’s and look at the pictures.  Phil asks John Luke what he learned on his little jaunt… Willie says the Robertson men are like sharks – always moving forward – and twice as lethal.  John Luke says he’s good.  He says he’s going out again.  Willie says, “Of course you’re going out again – You’re gonna go out with tons of people.”  John Luke corrected him… no me and her… we’re going out again – he had just texted her and they’re all good.  Willie asks about all that advice they gave him.  John Luke insists that he knows he caught a good fish and she’s a keeper.  Si says, “He’s right, there’s cod, there’s snapper and there’s fish sticks – hey those things are delicious.”  Then an argument ensues on whether or not fish sticks are made with real fish or just parts of fish.

Willie’s epilogue:  “When you’re young, relationships can come and go faster than you can say, “hey” but the one thing about us Robertson men, is that we have a knack for finding that one in a million (Jase inserts more like a billion) (Willie tells Jase to shut up)… The point is, no matter how many fish there are in the sea, there’s always that one perfect catch.”

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. Hump day, hump day! Happy Thursday eve. 🙂 It’s bright & sunny. I hope you enjoy your day.

  2. Birdwoman says:

    Now that I am older I don’t really care why some people stay in their marriages. What bothers me about Caroline is that she sat there and made comments about Teresa’s marriage and predicted that they will get divorced in this smug, know it all way, while all the time she knew her husband ‘had’ cheated on her..Though I wouldn’t be surprised if he was still cheating on her.

    • AZGirl says:

      ITA. Caroline obviously is in pain and wants others to join her in her own misery.

      • chismosa says:

        Caroline must have been raised a miserable person in her too-many-kids family and she got lost in the bunch. Because she is clearly making her same-sex child miserable and is repeating the cycle she must have gone through herself. Ugh

    • plainviewsue says:

      Amen to that!!!! I wonder if she is talking about this now cos it comes up in season five & she wants to address it first.

      As for people calling her daughter fat, they just followed mama’s lead. Who says their daughter is an 8 lb sausage in a 5 lb bag or whatever she said?

      This book will be in the 99 cent bin in no time.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        The Don is out promoting her book. These people (bravolebrities) will stop at nothing to self promote. She is not well-liked (according to the discussions on her book page on Amazon.com). She’ll even throw “perfect” Al and her “perfect” marriage under the bus for the potential handful of customers that have now been led to believe that she might elaborate about said affair(s) in her book. I can’t wait to NOT BUY THIS BOOK. Can’t wait.

        • Powell says:

          Right. That’s suppose to be the pull to her book. “You’ll have to buy the book” as they like to say to find out.

      • Powell says:

        Caro didn’t tell the journalist she called her daughter fat on national tv.

    • I think CaroWhine needs Brandi’s advice. HallPass anyone?
      Seriously, if a woman suspects her husband cheated most likely she knows it and doesn’t want to KNOW it. “Don’t ask don’t tell” kind of like the Army. It’s silly to even bring it up unless you want the fall out from it which may bring an end to his silence. Maybe Al is looking for a reason to finally end his marriage and this is a perfect out.
      You all know how I feel about NJ and the UNreal housewives. I’m sick of the stupid drama and mud slinging. I enjoy the kids and how adorable they are, but why oh why would any sane person want to open pandoras box in front of cameras?

    • I Need A Life! says:

      I’m praying with you, diva. My father-in-law wasn’t able to go forward with surgery because they felt his heart was too weak. They might need to evaluate whether he can take the stress of surgery.

    • SoutheastVA says:

      Mr. Ford and you are in my prayers.

    • AZGirl says:

      Sending you good vibes from AZ.

    • trudie says:

      Sending you and Mr. Ford warm thoughts and healing prayers.

      • HuskerHuny says:

        Just hoping that this is just one of those doctor tricks where they go a bit overboard on additional testing before surgery. But that’s a good thing usually. I hope it’s nothing serious and that your husband will be on that surgery gurney in no time! Wow – that’s something to wish for. Hoping for all good things!

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Oh crap Diva!!! Things have been going your way so I know this will turn out right!! Prayers and hugs to you and the Mister!!!!

    • Cathy Connor says:

      • Thanks for all the well wishes… WELL… this has been an agonizing past two hrs… let me see if I can explain what happened..I am so pissed and luckily for the new gal in the ortho office I am too damn tired to get dressed and go up there and chew her ass out and introduce DIVA to her…. maybe after the surgery I’ll complain to the dr and the office manager about her lack of professionalism….
        SO, this chick calls mr ford.. tells him that the cardio dr sent a fax pulling his auth for surgery… they dont quite understand whats going on , but will find out and let him know,, she tells him that maybe his heart isnt strong enough and they may just go ahead and do the full knee replacement as they may only have a one time shot….
        okay..I am confused..cardio dr pulls auth…. but one time shot for surgery so lets do total knee replacement… WTF…. and why is an office gal discussing this with mr ford… now I’m even more pissed…..
        call to cardio office..dr not in yet.. he will call me back asap… I wait…in mean time I call ortho office… maintain composure diva..maintain…. the gal then tells me to DISREGARD previous message…she misunderstood drs directions via fax.. again WTF !!!!!!!!!
        I tell her um…okay… later….
        waiting …waiting..waiting…. cardio dr calls….
        HE NEVER PULLED AUTH…. dumb ass chick read fax wrong and now even cardio dr is pissed…. she should have NEVER called mr ford to begin with..she should have VERIFIED info with cardio FIRST… why upset the patient,,,I laughingly told cardio dr ..to hell with upsetting patient..how bout NOT PISSING OFF THE WIFE… he laughs…
        now thanks to ms bimbo I have a flaming headache and the screaming mee mees…. my azz is on fire..!!! damn her…..
        so surgery is a go for tomorrow at 7 a/m

        diva

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          I knew it would work out DIVA!!! Good luck to Mr. Ford tomorrow!!!

        • Just Wondering in Jersey says:

          Phew! What would the world be like without idiots? Office girl needs more training or a new job and much better supervision. My best for tomorrow’s surgery.

        • stellastars21 says:

          Whew Diva. I’m sorry for the stress. Of course it’s good that it was a mistake and nothing is wrong with Mr Ford BUT that unnecessary stress she cause you guys is absolutely uncalled for. Stress can sometimes do as much damage as other serious health issues so for her to do that when it could have been avoided is terrible. I would have been through the roof if it were me. Well I’m glad that at least you’re getting paid cause that’s definitely a form of therapy. 😉

        • catmom1 says:

          So glad everything is ok. Someone needs to explain to the ditz exactly what kind of pain and problems she created. If it’s you…..I don’t think a jury of your peers would convict.

        • Powell says:

          Whew Diva! As I’m reading I’m like “why is a nurse or office employee calling Mr. Ford w/this info?”. That’s really good. On w/the surgery. I’m sorry you now have a headache. Hopefully the shower helps.

        • AZGirl says:

          Well we all know that there will be a job opening at your Ortho’s office 🙂

          • thedesigndiva2 says:

            azgirl…hahahahaha
            32 yrs with mr ford..stupidest he has ever said to me….
            honey..you need to let this go about the mix up from the ortho office… WHAT !!!!!!
            so tempted to hide the remote when I leave and make him walk around looking for it….hahahaha…yes I know..that’s an EBIL thing to do… j/k

        • Catseye says:

          I’m sure it’ll all work out okay. Sending you good thoughts.

        • L.A. Chica says:

          What a relief! Well, I’m still going to send Mr. Ford positive energy and keep you both in prayers that all goes well with the surgery. And I’m glad his ticker is strong!

        • Shiny says:

          Wow, Diva – what a nutcase that office chick is – needs total retraining session, and then a literacy test. Putting you through extra confusion was unforgivable when facing a surgery day for the mister. We should send old Faye to chew her out (and make her run screaming out of the office).

          Thinking of you and Mr. Ford tomorrow. Keep breathing deeply, and remember that assault and battery will just get you jail time….unless it’s on the recovering husband in a couple weeks, then Lisa V. will testify on your behalf. Remember how she was going to kill Ken after the hip replacement – justifiable homicide.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          tHE SCREAMING MEME’S!!?? you always have a way with words! Will be praying for a successful surgery. Sorry about the mess you had to deal with; but thank God for happy endings.

      • chismosa says:

        Ditto on the well-wishes Diva. Take care of yourselves.

    • princesspindy says:

      Oh Diva, I am praying, WTH!!!???

    • shamrockblonde says:

      you, Mr. Ford and all your care shall remain in my prayers – hold tight, have faith and know that we are with you both – *hufs Diva and Mr. Ford really hard*

      • Shamrock…I sure could use a ” huf” about right now…lol

          *HUGS Diva really really hard*

          mucho love angel –

    • VV says:

      (((Diva and Mr Ford))) Prayers your way.

    • TexasTart says:

      Diva, best wishes and prayers to Mr. Ford for his surgery, may all go as expected and patience to you my dear, as if you’ve not gone through enough stress before the big day.

  4. I Need A Life! says:

    Good morning. Chimosa mentioned Nightline last night on ABC featuring an interview with Lisa V. I went to the ABC site this morning and there’s a feature on her closet along with the original interview. However, seeing Lisa in her tights is causing me to wonder how in god’s name she can defy gravity like that.

    • SoutheastVA says:

      Great left surgery(ies).

    • T-Rex says:

      You know that on Season 1 when CedricTheSquatter was living with LisaV and Ken, his main job was a personal trainer for LisaV, and he had been doing that since he moved in with them years ago. They had that huge beautiful gym in their house, so LisaV has always been into fitness so it’s easy to see why she looks so good.

      • she looked so fantastic in season 1, and she still looks good – she put weight on in all the right places lol. A trainer makes a huge difference, but(t) Lisa knows what exercises to do to make her rear look good. Lots of “butt tucks” people – better than plastic surgery 😉

        • Sorry, butt tucks are a form of exercise, many many ways to make your rear sculpted. Walk up hill. Or lie down on the floor, put your feet on a step and lift your rear up off the ground, hold & release slowly, resist with your butt muscles on the way up and on the way down. While holding a small ball between your knees. Here’s another good one while after you do that, then keep one foot on the step, straighten the other leg & raise your butt off the floor as you push that straight leg up! This one is killer, but you will love the results. Squats and lunges are good too.

          • L.A. Chica says:

            Thank you for these exercises! I’m copying them for my fitness notes, Lord knows my butt needs some tucking.

      • chismosa says:

        Ummmmm yes she may be into fitness but I wouldn’t put it past (based on her face and it’s exquisite refined work) any silicone or fat transfer in the derrière also. Some people just HATE exercise. And it seemed quite a commotion when Lisa popped up out of nowhere with a plumper behind. Just sayin’ 😉

  5. AZGirl says:

    Watching videos of the reunion. Kyle is losing ground as a queen bee of BH and it is pissing her off. She is so entitled it is crazy. Yolanda is kicking butt. Kim is just a total mess and she needs to get back into rehab. STAT!

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      LOL – Klye is no longer the Queen Bee.
      She made a calculated attempt to take the real Queen Bee (Lisa) down and lost. Having Faye come on and try to break up the Yolanda/Lisa/Brandi trifecta of fun didn’t work and likely costed her many fans. Adrienne is gone, Camille is gone, Taylor is making nice with Lisa/Yolanda so all Kyle really has is her sister, who could turn on her at any given moment.

  6. jezzibel says:

    I know this is going to seem cruel, but it seems to me that Ronnie’s daughter is in better capable hands when her mother is not around to look after her. I seem to recall that Remy choked on her food when her mother was looking after her(but was 3 sheets to the wind at the time….ALLEGEDLY) and wasn’t paying attention to her daughter.

  7. Boobah says:

    Hi everyone! Thank you NMD, BB, and of course SUPERstars for a great blog today!!

    Hope everyone has a good day – Friday is just around the corner.

    Weird thing happened last night, I received one of those weather alerts on my phone…snow squall. What the hell is a snow squall?!?! Apparently it by-passed my area so I wasn’t able to experience it (trust me, I’m not complaining about that) first hand. But it was weird. Are they just making stuff up now?!

  8. T-Rex says:

    My take on the BitterbitchyExLindaT and YOLO. BitterBitchyExLindaT had been in the running via ShannaTaylorNOtFordLyingGrifterHusbandStealerLypsMcGee and CamilizillaTWOFace for a spot on the show. She was on a reality show with her two deadbeat sons previously while married to David Foster. They were in the midst of divorcing her when that show was filming due to various reasons, (her deadbeat kids allegedly). SO, when YOLO gets the spot via LisaV and her connection to Mohammed Hadid and now being married to David Foster, BitterbitchyExLindaT was NOT happy . Oh and YOLO was NOT the reason for the divorce between David and BitterbitchyExLindaT as has been insinuated previous by BitterbitchyExLindaT. It had been reported that while BitterbitchyExLindaT divorced her husband, after he had noved out on her, she was still in love with him and wanted him back but he moved on and found YOLO. So she has an agenda going on she tried to poison the waters by using ShannaTaylorNOtFordLyingGrifterHusbandStealerLypsMcGee and CamilizillaTWOFace to do her dirty work but that backfired big time when those two were scene as part of the meangirl Squad headed up by VileKyle and the HoofMaloof and YOLO became a HW the fans seemed to enjoy. From day one of YOLO being on the show BitterbitchyExLindaT gave I believe an interview and tweeted about YOLO and David when she just needs to STFU. They don’t have any children together so there is no need for them to even interact with each other.

    • Powell says:

      T-Rex Linda just needs to get over it & herself. If David wanted to try their relationship again he would have before he met Yo. She’s not going to be a HW or even a “friend of”. That time has passed.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      They don’t have children together but after 15 or 16 years of marriage I would hope they consider each others children as theirs. I also think Yolanda didnt need to say how David’s ex was still in love with him on the show. Perhaps that is gossiping and we know how Yolanda feels about gossip!

      • T-Rex says:

        I think YOLO doesn’t have a problem with gossip just gossip that isn’t true. I think YOLO has had “enough” of the BitterbitchyExLindaT who has said some truly unkind things to the press previously regarding YOLO and David’s marriage. I remember someone posting an article on the blogs when they were filming this season and that’s how LindaT got her monicker of the BitterBitchEx. She basically accused YOLO of “stealing” her spot on the show.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          do you remember if it was the Gather that ran the story? I don’t believe that Gather story at all! It says a “source” heard her say that Yolanda stole her husband and took her show. When Linda and David got divorced they both told the press that they were keeping the details private and they did. To me this sounds like it is gossip in all it’s glory!

          • T-Rex says:

            Yes, but remember that a couple of shows back ShannaTaylorNOTFordLyingGrifterHusbandStealerLypsMcgee was telling CamillizillaTWOFace that they needed to stick with their friend BitterBitchyExLindaT and from what little we saw and from what I remember there were some references made that were almost verbatim from that article, well now considering the issues it may have been ShannaTaylorNOTFordLyingGrifterHusbandStealerLypsMcgee who was the “source” for that artcle. Things that make you go Hmmmmm. It was almost insuated again that somehow YOLO was the reason that BitterBitchyExLindaT and David were not together any longer, and they heard other pretty sordid and unkind things that BitterBitchyExLindaT. I read up a little as to the reason for their Divorce, David could not stand BitterBitchyExLindaT’s children, nor the way she treated them, no discipline, and would not allow David to have a hand in those child-rearing decisions because they weren’t his kids, coupled with a few other issues so he moved out and SHE divorced him.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              The thing with him not liking her kids comes from that stupid show they did together. I have yet to find on thing that Linda has actually said about Yolanda-not a thing. If this information about Linda and David is coming from Taylor and what she insinuated at the Moroccan dinner-well remember she was bombed…and it’s Taylor!!
              I don’t remember Taylor saying anything for the article but I do remember her being bombed and annoyed with Yolanda!

    • Stars99 says:

      T-Rex – you and your nicknames crack me up!

  9. Good Morning! Happy Wednesday….and First Day of Spring!! And go figure…it is cloudy here today. Hoping for a few spring showers. I have also been up since 5am doing spring cleaning. LOL! I really did not plan it that way, but with the sun shining in the windows I can see the winter dust on things that don’t get cleaned every day, so I am on a spree this morning before the work day starts. Love how this happened!

    Thanks NMD, Star99 and BB for a great blog! It is so silly when these ladies tweet nonsense then take it back. Or tweet to be “real”. Loved your sentiment in big bold letters NMD…and couldn’t agree more!

    Stars99 – I forgot Duck Dynasty started their new season so will have to catch up and come back later to read your recaps. I know they will be my comic relief later on!

    BB – thanks for the line-up for tonight. I have no idea what’s on Wed’s without looking at your lists. Thanks!!

    Have a great Spring Wednesday everyone!

    Wednesday’s “Humor Blog” is up at my place. Enjoy!

    • Powell says:

      MarDrag I don’t know how you did some of your Spring cleaning that early BEFORE you went to work. Sista I am impressed. 🙂

      • Ahhh, don’t be too impressed Powell….my office is in a loft upstairs in the house so “going into the office” is a few stairs away. But, I do have to put everything back together before clients start arriving! 😉

        Hope you are having a lovely day doll!

    • Stars99 says:

      OMG… Barnabas… aren’t there laws against doing “spring cleaning” on the very first day of spring? And so very early in the morning? Holycraponacracker!

      • LOL…..I fought the law…and I won! But, I truly did not plan it that way, it just happened this was the best day for me to get to it. I do love the harmony in it being first day of spring tho. I am an early riser and love to get it done so I can have the rest of the day for work and play. It is a “conditioning” thing…I was raised that way and have never shaken it…..among other things we won’t get into! 😛 Sending you Hugs little mouse!

  10. LA_Debra says:

    I know this is Diva’s area, but I just watched this video and thought, “Wow, what a talent”. And then thought I’d try to share.

    <param

  11. Youse guys are so funny, I was lmao reading the last few blogs. 🙂
    Why Kyle thought it was a good idea to get Fayke on the show boggles the mind doesn’t it? After this shitstorm with Kyle (and her hub’s) shannanigans on the show, how many people in BH will decide Not to use Murray? Plenty!

    Yes we do remember Fayke and her moral corruptness from the OJ murder trial days. Funny how Kyle & Kim don’t. They really are dumb!

    Fayke is like a hyena crossed with a gator. Who would let that mess loose on anyone? Or want that showing up at your house. As for the “pecking order” in BH, Kyle just managed to lower herself down into the gutter – make that the sewer. Jealousy is blinding her to her own actions. It is killing the mean girls that Yolo, Lisa & dirty girl Brandi are wiping all their asses right off the tv. Love it!

    • T-Rex says:

      The funny thing is VileKyle still thinks she is the Queen, yeah the QueenOfMean. She dropped the tidbit that a bombshell is dropped at the Reunion and how we are going to be so surprised, uhm delusional witch, if this bombshell drops right down on you we are going to be THRILLED to pieces that you are getting your much deserved comeuppance. I truly believe she believes that she is some sort of Fan Favorite, ugh, again D-E-L-U-S-I-O-N-A-L

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Didnt Andy mention that Brandi dropped a bomb at the reunion? When did Kyle mention it?

        • T-Rex says:

          I swear I saw something about this yesterday, I know that Kyle said she was hurt and emotional regarding the reunion, or something to that affect on WWHL. Darn now have to go search where I read that about VileKyle

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Maybe she mentioned it during her phone in? That would be weird though b/c she was in the car with Brandi.

            • T-Rex says:

              Note this is from the WetPaint article, please note this was taken from Wetpaint.com website with their interview with VileKyle Richards, all credit for the below is given directly to Wetpaint.com
              “It was exhausting and draining and, for me, very emotional. I feel like I’ve been so emotional all season. I cry again this week and then again at the reunion. I’m an emotional person. But there’s someone at the reunion who really hurt me and I kind of lost my marbles. In a perfect world, I’d like the reunions to be a place where we clear the air. But sometimes, all it does it bring up new problems. But we did clarify a few things…you’ll have to watch what happens.”

    • Powell says:

      blue you are funny. Dirty girl Brandi. 🙂 You are so right that BH is the,Lisa, Yo & Brandi show and the other’s a very very jealous about that. Camille actually could have been apart of that but then she started the not being on the show then being on the show but very limited and then bashing Lisa for no reason. I wonder who will be A’s replacement and if she will join the L, Y & B show. 🙂

      • Austin says:

        I don’t think that’s a fact. I definitely do not watch for nasty Brandi or sanctimonious, anti-feminist Yolanda. I like Lisa fine, although not sure what she sees in low-life Brandi. To each their own.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Right now, I think it IS a fact. In terms of the overwhelming popularity. But the producers can and do and will pull a fast one on the viewers and before you know it…enemy number one of this season could become the darling of the next season. Austin, you may not like Brandi or Yo..but lots of folks do. Just curious, who do you like? There’s no right or wrong…just curious. I sometimes go against the majority…when everyone loved Caroline…I COULDN’T STAND THAT WOMAN. Or at least what I saw on my t.v. When everyone was feeling sorry for Jac because of her daughter…I was so upset that a mother would do that to her child. So mad, was I. (yoda-style) I get a little mad just thinking about her and what she did to her daughter. Granted, Jac did not make Ashley behave a certain way…but she knew her daughter would be fed to the wolves and she let it happen. She even enjoyed the sympathy when people would write horrible things about Ashley (when she was a minor). She turned on the waterworks for the camera. It was horrible. imo ok, breathe, Lainey, it’s over….breathe in….breathe out…

    • L.A. Chica says:

      Welcome back, Bluesky! It’s so good to see you posting again. 🙂

    • Stars99 says:

      Hi Bluey!… Dies laffin… “a hyena crossed with a gator?”

  12. TexasTart says:

    Hi everyone, I have been working too much and miss hanging out here. However late to the conversation, here are my most memorable moments on the last edition of Beverly Hills.

    Hands down, the outdoor massage with Lisa and Brandi is a dream!!! Complete with pink massage tables, umbrellas…all things pink basically. Ken climbing on top of Lisa….”the new hip works like a charm!”. I love this couple!

    When Paul is getting brown body paint applied to join the tree statue people…..he asked the woman applying the paint “do you have to scrub this off?” and she replies: “Yeah, just ask your wife.” HA!

    Brandi, in the limo with Jennifer about how she would not flirt with other husbands and gave a very visible full body shudder when she said Mauricio’s name. HA!

    Kevin Lee doing his “shi shi shi shi shi” sans pants decorating in one of Lisa’s decorative pools. I don’t know why I thought that was funny, but it made me giggle.

    People arriving at Lisa’s party is fun, even though I know Bravo will invite those that create an uproar by their presence alone. The disgusting moment of all is Fayekr greeting people with the cheek kiss – she alone is gross – but she does something different than other people. She puts her hand on their neck and pulls them in. I don’t live in kissy-kissy circles, but if someone cradled their hand around my neck and pulled inward, they would have another thing coming!!!

    Lisa was standing in the background during the Brandi/Yolanda/Marisa & Faye (just making the point she didn’t jump in). Camille outside of this conversation about Faye stepping is “good, good!” as if Faye is going to save the day. You can see that Marisa puts herself out there and really doesn’t know how to play the game (a generalization of her season) so she is trying to defend herself or clarify what she did or didn’t mean (and not doing a good job!) but the minute Faye walks up Marisa wanted to climb under a table. HA! Not even Marisa feeling cornered wanted Fay in hers! HA!
    Yolanda to Faye: “Don’t trash talk!”
    Faye to Brandi: “No matter how many Chanels you borrow you will NEVER be a lady.” (huh?!)

    My favorite – most deserved line from a housewife is from a Brandi TH: “Faye walks up to a situation that has nothing to do with her and puts her dick on the table and decides that we need to have a talk….” 😆

    • Rebecca says:

      Lol!

      Maybe the spray painter meant that Paul should go rub the paint off on the furniture. It is the Adrienne way.

      I wish Lisa was there with Brandi and Faye and told her ladies carry real Berkins. To hold their four-inch, non-maloof shoes. To roundhouse kick her in the face. Or carry around old Playboys of nude turncoats to provide evidence of what real ladies would never do.

    • Powell says:

      Others have mentioned FayeK’s line to Brandi about the Chanel also. Her saying that definitely let’s us know that FayeK is also checking Brandi out like so many of the other insecure ladies. Thats so funny. Was it T-Rex that said Brandi doesn’t know the power she has over those ladies. LOL. Get’em Brandi. 🙂

      • catmom1 says:

        It’s power that they gave her. I don’t think Brandi would be quite as popular as she is if it weren’t for all the mean girl attacks by….let’s see….listing them by season….Kim, Kyle, Dana who, Adrienne, Faye, and I thimk Camille. Did I miss anyone?

    • L.A. Chica says:

      TexasTart, I love that line of Brandi’s from her TH, too! Meanwhile, Faye was so lame with that Chanel remark, and she couldn’t even deliver it without halting. You could see the little hamsters running on the wheels inside her brain during the pause, trying to remember how the line was supposed to go. 😆

      But really, who would even begin to think that wearing Chanel = being a lady? I’m not knocking Chanel, it’s a fabulous brand, but Faye just came off sounding like she was projecting her own shallowness onto Brandi, and imho she failed.

      • TexasTart says:

        Oh yes, Chica, the hamsters turning! LOL, she did fail big time.
        LOL to Rebecca’s references to round house kicks and nude turncoats!

  13. TexasTart says:

    Thanks to NMD, Stars, MTH, and BB for recent blogs! I would have missed DWTS had it not been for BB’s TV lineup because I would have been watching RHOBH. How is it that Lisa is only on 2 TV shows and they play opposite one another? Well it is only for a short while, I suppose.

    I boycotted WWHL the other night because of Andy’s flaunting Kim Richards, her so-called sobriety and love for turtles. Thanks to BB’s write up, I was reminded why I have such a love – hate relationship with Miss Andy: The JackHole of the year goes to Andy Cohen for pointing out (with the use of a very large red arrow graphic) of a dog’s penis (Giggy). I can’t think of anything more juvenile than that, albeit not the first time he has pointed out a penis on WWHL, so why did it take the subject being a dog for me to lose my sense of humor there.

  14. melthehound says:

    Stars99! Great recaps. I was hoping you would be doing them again… I know these guys aren’t stupid and a lot of what we see is an act but for reality TV, it’s one of the best things going today.

    RHOV…. Yes, I’m watching it… Still can’t stand Jodi or her rat faced daughter.. Their voices are like cheese graters on my ears. Jodi better recognize that her daughter is a shit faced blind stinking Drunk, and a pig at that before she goes talking about somebody else being a good person. Mary does play the innocent a lot but after so many years, Drunken Heinz (allegedly) Ronnie should know that and either accept it or move on.. Of course, this show is exactly what one might expect when they’ve followed a Bravo model for programming.

    Also watched Celeb Apprentice.. I know most of you hate The Trump and don’t watch because of it.. I just mention it though because I think LaToya Jackson is a class A idiot. If she Really thought that Trump buys Omarosa’s fake crying act, then she deserved to be fired. Even Trump said, he likely would have fired her. Thanks a lot LaToya.. Now those of us who watch have to continue to suffer through that witch.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Jeff-I gotta tell ya-Trump LOVES Ormarosa-he LOVES her. I don’t think he would have fired her because he thinks she brings the ratings. Trump loves to brag about ratings more than he loves Omarosa!

      • melthehound says:

        That’s entirely possible.. After all, on our reality television, no one likes to see everyone get along. It’s boring and Trump knows it.

      • chismosa says:

        Jill I’m with you, LaToya, despite appearances is smarter than we think. She knew omarosa would never be let go. He knew Trump was enamored with her and the ratings she brought in.
        She said so at her interviews yesterday as well.

        Trump can SAY he would have considered firing Oma but we all know that would never happen. JMho

    • shamrockblonde says:

      oh sooooo agree with tthis – sorry that Dee is gone already so now I’m rooting for Trace Atkins and Penn – love those two –

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I don’t get how Jody is getting all kinds of love on twitter. I think she is just awful.

    • Powell says:

      Jodi is blind to her daughter’s faults. She thinks they’re funny & endearing but any of the ladies that do the same have psychological problems.

    • Boobah says:

      I’ve been watching Celeb Apprentice. Trump is a total ass, yet I am still watching. Trump has his favorites and Omarosa is one of them. I don’t think he would have fired her. O can claw her way out of anything and LaToya wouldn’t have been able to handle the way O fights. O is very good at railroading and manipulating – plus she would have played the sympathy card and Trump would have excused her for being a no-show. And in the back of his mind, Trump knows O brings in the ratings, so it’s not difficlut choice. JMO.

      • I Need A Life! says:

        I normally like Trump, but the way he treated Brett Michaels for coming back to do the show was almost cruel. Brett wanted to raise more money for Juvenile Diabetes. Why knock him out of the park like that. Great lesson for me in last week’s show. Follow your gut and don’t second guess yourself. That’s what Latoya did.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          He was so rude to Brett…why invite someone back just to make fun of the when the accept!!??

          • Boobah says:

            I completely agree w/ you guys. He was such a jerk to Brett. I thought it was awesome that he came back to get more money for his charity. Since when is that a bad thing? Somehow Trump felt insulted, maybe? I’m not making excuses for the Trumpet, just wondering out loud. Trump was gunning for Brett from minute one, IMO.

      • chismosa says:

        It was in some paper or on some site I read that NBC wanted Brett on but TRUMP did not want him to compete. Trump wanted him strictly as a judge, as all past winners have been and will be. So Trump appeased NBC by letting Brett come on but then he got rid of him right away. That’s how it rolled out!!

    • Stars99 says:

      Franks, Mel… I watched Celebrity Apprentice, too… although I had promised myself I wouldn’t watch it cuz of he who shall not be named… Time and time again, He who shall not be named has consistently made really bad decisions on this show – many of them for no apparent reason so I have absolutely no faith in his being able to actually do the right thing and fire Omarosa. I was pretty surprised that LaToya asked for permission to fire one person from her team… but silly LaToya – one thing that He who shall not be named cannot abide by is when someone attempts to usurp his authority… unless they’re cute and blonde or something… lol… He who shall not be named deserves to have someone like Omarosa around… snakes often like to play together, don’t they?

  15. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Caroline thinks she is slick talking about Al cheating on her now-before the show starts. These fools really did learn something over the years!! It’s best to get in front of the rumors-if she says it she thinks it won’t be a big deal…. She needs to remember that her daughter called Teresa and Joe all sorts of names b/c of Joe’s cheating ways-now those names apply to mother and father!!

    • melthehound says:

      8 pounds of sausage and Momz won’t think anything of calling out others on their behavior while same is happening in their own family. I thought Momz was done done done with this show… As noted in the blog though, she has a book to push..

      • Rebecca says:

        How many pages is that book? My desk leg is a little wobbly.

      • shamrockblonde says:

        I would have loved to be a fly on the wall during the conversation that took place between her and All – or for that matter her and her children – after she made that statement -…..yikes

    • T-Rex says:

      I am trying so hard not to comment on NJ but something came to mind:
      A) Could there Possibly be an additional Manzo running around that we are going to hear about
      B) Did Dina finally spill the beans about Al’s cheating ways since we all know her ex-husband cheated on her constantly and she and Caro are still feuding.
      C) Kim(forgot her name) has dirt on Al from him running around with people she or her husband knew.

      • Realhousewifeva says:

        There were reports a couple weeks ago that something would come out this season about Al’s cheating. Not sure how reliable that is, but it’s certainly interesting that Caroline says this now

      • AZGirl says:

        T-Rex I was thinking the same thing about the timing of this book. I am guessing that something about Al’s infidelities is going to come out this season.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I don’t get Caroline bringing this up other than for what people have pointed out as a ratings ploy or trying to hype her book. She basically accused her husband of cheating yet said it only suspicion of hers and hasn’t been confirmed. Why on earth would anyone have a conversation like that with the PUBLIC and toss their husband of 25+ years under the bus over a hunch.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I think she wanted to say it before anyone else spilled the beans!!

      • chismosa says:

        I’m liking your theories all that maybe this is connected to Dina and the feud with Caro

        Both — cheating spouse brothers Innnnnteresting

  16. Powell says:

    Did you all look at tonight’s tv line-up from BB? WWHL – Patti Stanker. LOL BB. That is too funny. 🙂 She was on GMA w/her BF. I turned.

  17. HuskerHuny says:

    Stars99 – you’re a superstar! Wonderful recap of Duck Dynasty! Absolutely, without a doubt, the best show on TV. No drama, it’s funny, non-scripted (for the most part), genuine, family- and faith-based. Oh my gosh, I just realized why I like it so much – Duck Dynasty is the total opposite of any Real Housewives show! I watch Duck Dynasty to see the correct way to live your life and I watch the Housewives to see the wrong way to live your life. I can learn something – good or bad – from anything! Keep up the great work Stars99!

    • catmom1 says:

      Well said Husker. Thanks Stars99. DD is one of my favorite shows and I can watch it with my hubby.

    • Stars99 says:

      Awww… thanks for the kind words… I really wanted to blog it because it’s such a great show… glad you guys are enjoying it! Remember… we’re trying to convert people to watch it one viewer at a time… lol…

  18. Powell says:

    I’m watching Mobwives. I say this again. I don’t like Ramona. What gives her the right to talk to Karen’s ex Dave’s GF?

    • mrs peabody says:

      Because Karen is her cousin she thinks she can. I can’t stand her myself, I’d sure like to know where she gets her money from since her ex doesn’t support his kids. I wonder if it is only the money from doing the show she has to live on. Same with Deidra and the rest of them, they don’t seem to work. Only Karen and big Ang seem to be doing anything.

      • Powell says:

        Drita is a makeup artist so when the show 1st started she was doing that on a ltd basis. She’s doing it more this season. She also models clothes for print ads. She does other things from time to time. I think Ramona may have some money from her grandfather. His father disowned her when she married so I ubt he helps her. Before her BF went to jail he was supporting her. She’s not a “Mob Wife” just a “friend of” so I don’t see her making that much to support her & her kids. Carla said she works. I can’t remember if she said RE. She was working in the markets, wallstreet w/Joe but I suspect she’s not now since he went to jail for fraud. Love said she modeled lingerie at one time. I have no idea of what she does now.

        • chismosa says:

          At the very least Ramona, Karen, and Renee are REALLY mob. The others are NOT mob!!! So lame.

      • melthehound says:

        I could be wrong and probably am but I don’t think they are really ‘cousins’.. They may be through the other ‘family’ but not blood related. I think both of them are a bit skeezer like and one of these days, Ramona will no longer be a Gumar. She’ll be used up.

    • chismosa says:

      Ramona and Karen are not related but know each other from childhood and have each others’ back BIG TIME. I admire that about their friendship.

      Ramona married a Middle Eastern man and her family didnt like that, but I don’t think they disowned her the way Drita’s family did to her.
      Ramona has quite a few kids so I don’t get how she’s now in a small apartment. Yikes!

      I like Karen and Ramona but I know I tend to be in the minority 😝

  19. I Need A Life! says:

    Thanks to this group, I’ve started watching Downton Abbey. I sell vintage jewelry at antique shows, and I’ve lately started to look for anything any of the housewives wear in their interviews. I actually sold earrings after I told a gal it was something that I’d see Lisa V. wear. She knew what I meant right away. Fun bonding. Another dealer told me she’s been selling older Edwardian pieces thanks to Downton Abbey, so I sat to watch and soak it in. Wow! How could I have missed this for so long? But, I love me a good show marathon.

    My point? BEST line ever by one of the housekeepers. “I’m NOT a lady and I DON’T pretend to be.” I so wish Brandi would have thought of that as a comeback to Faye.

    • Powell says:

      Julian Fellows is brilliant. DA is some of the best programming on PBS. Are you on last season or this past season? I love to watch it as a marathon too. You can’t wait for the next epi. I love the fashion & jewelry from that time. The costume designer won an Emmy. I’m glad its giving you inspiration. :+)

      • I Need A Life! says:

        I just finished the first season. Yeah!! More to watch. These characters are fabulous. I now know why older Bohemian garnet necklaces are selling at such outrageous prices.

    • L.A. Chica says:

      I recently saw a pair of huge sparkly bright pink earrings at Bloomingdales that were on sale and almost bought them, just in case I ever had to go to a costume party, thinking I would go as Lisa Vanderpump!

  21. designernailsdiana says:

    Yesterday was a crappy day for me. 3:30 a.m. my oldest daughter (Mom to my avatar picture “Isaak”) She was in extreme pain and needed me to take her to ER.
    Off we went. Checked in my 4:30 and waited in a room…..and waited… meanwhile pain is getting worse as she gets one squeeze of pain that eases a bit then comes back again. At 5:45 I made her buzz the nurse to get pain meds….6:00 Dr finally comes in…. CT scan ordered along with pain meds….finally. Got pain meds then ct scan….waited…pain got worse again…more pain meds…blood draw…KIDNEY STONES!
    She said to me “Mom I’d rather give birth again because this hurts so bad”. I told her “at least with birth you get a baby at the end with this pain you get a grain of sand.” She laughed.
    I took her home and we passed out for 4 hours. Her pain got bad again then finally she got it under control by taking pain meds before it got worse. Today is round 2 of the pain roller coaster. Bless the other grandma as she is taking Isaak overnight and I’ll pick him up in the morning to go back to Mommy.
    Pray for Lizzi Please. This is so hard for her because she can’t take care of her son while dealing with this pain.
    Thank You,
    Diana

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Prayers for Lizzi, Isaak and you!!!

    • AZGirl says:

      Poor girl. Kidney stones are terrible. You are a good mom to take Isaak.

    • princesspindy says:

      Oh your poor baby!!! It is so hard to watch our children in pain. Tell her when they pass she has to name them and since they are such a pain, I am sure HW names will do!! Praying for quick passage!!!

    • Powell says:

      Diana I’m sending up a prayer for your Lizzi. Poor thing. My mom had that yrs ago & said just what Lizzi said about the pain. Hopefully its going to pass very soon. I hope you don’t worry too much as you moms can’t help but worry. I hope you can get some rest. Isaak is lucky he has great grandmas.

    • trudie says:

      Hugs and healing thoughts being sent to Lizzi!

      • designernailsdiana says:

        You all bring tears to my eyes. Naming the stones is a genius idea. She might name them after her siblings however.
        Thank You again for all your love and prayers.

    • L.A. Chica says:

      Diana, I’m sorry your daughter is in so much pain. Yes, I’ll pray for her but in the meantime may I suggest making her some parsley tea? It’s best to make it from fresh parsley, both leaves and stems. If you have parsley growing at your house or hers then include the roots, too. It should help her pain and to dissolve the stones.

    • Stars99 says:

      Ouchie… praying… hope her pain dissipates quickly…

    Today is my daughter Princess Beanie Boo’s 20th Birthday!!!! Last year there were times that I seriously didn’t think we would see this day together! Thank you for all your love, support and encouragement!! As soon as the “Plumber’s Laborer” $70 a hour vs yesterday’s $90 a hour “Real Plumber” is done we are off for a day of adventure!! I know it may not be up to BH standards but we are going to The Mall and this mall has a 3 story TAR~GET’ , that’s right 3!! That’s how we roll! We said if we get tired we will get a wheel chair and take turns pushing each other, lol.
    Have a Great Day Y’all and just to rub it in, it is a glorious day here in San Diego, clear skies, sunshine and it in the 70s!!!

  23. HuskerHuny says:

    Just saw some of the latest TV ratings and it looks like “The New Normal” is having a downward spiral (or as Aviva would say spiraling downward). This show has seen a 14 percent drop in ratings and is only pulling in 2.1 viewers. Maybe little ol’ Nene should have been nicer to those around her on her way up because it looks like the fall is coming very soon.

    • iceNfire says:

      I remember Robin Givens saying she din’t care who she step on, on her way up b/c she wasn’t coming down. idk if she is up or down, haven’t seen her in years. But she was Very pretty on the outside

      • Powell says:

        Ice she’s not up or down. She’s steady I think. She wrote a book a few yrs ago. Does work w/a non-profit & is raising her sons. Every now & then she does some acting. I think she was on a show last season.

        • iceNfire says:

          She and Iron Mike were on the cover of a magazine waaaay back and I saved that mag for years and years b/c the picture was so beautiful. At the time none of their business was open to the public.I’m trying to think of when the rag mags started, Babe Ruth got away with everything he did and so did JFK…maybe water-gate opened the doors to rag mags??? idk

    • chismosa says:

      NBC is doing bad ALL AROUND. they are hemorrhaging viewers for a long time now. Nothing is doing well there.
      They didnt even make the top 4 networks. For the first time Univision was in there ABOVE NBC. They have MAJOR problems. It’s in the news everyday.

  24. HuskerHuny says:

    Oops, should have said 2.1 million viewers, but I think all of you would have figured that out. My brain is a bit chilled – it’s only 17 degrees outside, Isn’t it spring yet?

    PrincessP how’s your littlePrincess doing?

  26. realhousewifeva says:

    I don’t know anything about Linda Thompson, but if Yolanda is going to say on camera that she is still in love with David, then Linda has a right to respond via twitter or whatever way she wants. I really don’t care for Yolanda’s whole emphasis about David being her King and pretending to be the perfect housewife who serves her king. I’m sorry, but she was married for about 6 months during this filming, that’s hardly a basis to determine that you know all the secrets to a perfect marriage. David comes off self-important and very into himself, to me. Has he yet said “Yes baby, and you are my Queen” Or is he the KING and she’s the housewife? Plus, I think it’s really easy to be a perfect housewife when you are a gazillionaire. I like Yolanda, but I don’t love her…yet. Time will tell.

    Caroline…trying to sell books. I guess she learned from Brandi that a little scandal can sell lots of books. lol. Like we didn’t know that Al cheated (and is probably still cheating) First Jac attacks Teresa’s financial problems and look where she is. Caroline attacked Teresa’s marriage, and now she’s basically admitting her husband is a cheater. What kind of comment is “But he’s a man” as if that is a good excuse? Nice way to teach your sons.

    I have been catching up on Arias trial because I fell behind a little, still not all caught up, but Martinez DESTROYED that Defense Psychologist. I may not be the biggest fan of the Martinez Method of cross examination, but damn, he buried that guy. Better than a housewives show.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      These housewives are setting the woman’s movement back in strides!! One says the man is King and the other says he’s a man so that’s why he cheats!
      I have been missing the trial these days and I keep missing NancyGrace at night-are they ready to wrap it up soon?

      • Realhousewifeva says:

        Seriously they give the men way too much leeway. However I also have to say that Linda’s comment that she is “so middle class” for making her own jam? Wtf was that?

        Not sure when this trial will end, I’m assuming soon. Lifetime is casting for the Jodi arias movie

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          The middle class thing was strange-on twitter she said she is very proud of her middle class roots….whatever the hell that means!

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Who is your pick to play Jodi Arias…I can’t think of anyone!

            • T-Rex says:

              Kristen Stewart as Jodi would be good IMO

            • LaineyLainey says:

              That is such a good question. I like K.Stewart. But, if you know who Kate del Castillo is…one of my favorite Mexican actresses. She’s super talented…I love her!!! Anyways I think I she would be great, too!!! Kate has a film coming out called K-11…this will be her breakout role in the U.S., I’m tellin’ ya (though she has had international fame for many years)…read about it here (her new movie)http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/03/01/kate-del-castillo-in-k-11_n_2790523.html

        • chismosa says:

          I think Eva Longoria without all her makeup looks like Jodi, very ratty/chipmunk-like. She really piles on the makeup.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            I have to wear a lot of makeup, too. But I look nothing like Eva. I can see the resemblance now that you mention it. But you know, that would be a good role for Eva. She’d have to really use her acting chops because she is such a media darling. I can’t imagine not liking Eva Longoria.
            she’d have to really channel and sell the psycho that is Jodi.

  27. realhousewifeva says:

    Brandi is live on OK magazine, someone asked her about Faye. She said that no matter how bitchy Faye is, she should not get death threats and fans shouldn’t be so agressive b/c it is a show and no one is perfect “She’s a bitch, but she doesn’t deserve to die!” lol

    • realhousewifeva says:

      “Listen, If you buy your clothes at Walmart, you can still be a lady, Faye!” Brandi

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      Faye wouldn’t get such an extreme fan reaction if she didn’t act like such a raving asshat!

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I like that Brandi said that-she knows its just a TV show and peeps need to calm down. No reason to threaten or wish death on a reality person.

    • Rebecca says:

      Perhaps she shouldn’t die, but she should go permanently mute and lose all sort of muscular function that would allow her to write or type.

    • T-Rex says:

      Again MorallyCorruptFayeKR and the “death threats” good grief, Peter crying WOLF yet again. All public folks get weirdos who say dumbass weirdass comments, folks are crazy and when they can hide behind a twitter or an email account, then sometimes they take Crazy to a WHOLE new level. You know what bitch stay your ass home and off TV and the media, don’t do any more appearances on Public Television if you can’t take a bit of heat, due to the fact that YOU CAUSED THE HEAT IN THE FIRST PLACE. Arrgggggghhhhh! She needs to GO AWAY. Bravo, look she’s a liability refuse to film her any longer please do us and apparently the MorallyCorruptFayeKR a HUGE favor.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Brandi said-not Faye. I think it was cool of Brandi to tell people to calm down.

        • T-Rex says:

          MorallyCorruptFayeKR and VileKyle have been telling folks about Death Threats, remember Brandi has been with VileKyle the past week or so and I am sure she is being informed of all these Threats, it’s MorallyCorrruptFayeKR modus operandi whenever she gets into hot water, she cries Death Threats. There was an article posted here about a year ago or right after filming began for this season and if you count just in that article the number of times she occused folks of Death Threats it was like a dozen times, and those were when she filed in the courts.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Well T-Rex after readying the disgusting things I have seen on twitter these last 2 days I would bet Faye has received thousands of death threats this week alone. Not to mention the things people have been saying they want to do to Kyle’s children’s-there are some sickos out there!!!!

            • Realhousewifeva says:

              I didn’t really see people threatening Faye on twitter, for the most part they were calling her gross, a pig, trash…etc

          • mrs peabody says:

            if she’s getting threats maybe she should just live a quiet little life and stop seeking public attention. Nobody would even care about her. I lead a very quiet little life and have never had anyone threaten me with death (that i’m aware of that is), maybe she should try it, it isn’t so bad. LOL

    • catmom1 says:

      If anyone is interested, here’s the link. The part about Faye starts at 9:10 http://www.okmagazine.com/news/exclusive-join-ok-live-google-hangout-brandi-glanville-march-20th-get-details-here

      • catmom1 says:

        Forgot to mention it’s a pretty good interview. Runs around 30 min and seems to be the most substantive interview of Brandi that I’ve come across. Real questions and real answers. Was worth my time to watch.

        • catmom1 says:

          At the very end on the interview, Brandi (talking about the finale episode) says, “You think you were talking about Faye now, wait till Monday.”

          • L.A. Chica says:

            Do you suppose the bombshell had something to do with Faye and/or Kyle’s friendship with her? If Brandi or Yo had said something relating Kyle to Faye maybe that’s what was so hurtful. I mean, there’s a lot that can be said about the MCFR, and the fact that she and Kyle are so close leaves Kyle open to criticism as well.

            • windycitywondering2 says:

              LOL – I am incline to think it has something to do with the Kyle/Faye/Adrienne take down team – no one believes that these mischievous little monkeys were working independently of each other.

              • iceNfire says:

                Good catch Chica! If anything out there can connect Kyle with the past of TMCFR that would definitely be the worst thing anyone could say to Kyle

    Lainey – Your “Extra Extra!! Read all about it!!” comment reminded me of the old days. Remember when the little boys would shout this while standing on the corner waving a newspaper around?…No, I don’t either but saw it the old Gangster movies hahahaha

  32. stellastars21 says:

    Regarding the Caroline comment about Al cheating cause he is a man I can’t hold that against her because I don’t know her history. An example is that my mom had a terrible childhood and does not trust men. But she tries to move on with her life as best she can and she wanted to start a family. She got married and told him that she knows how men are and if he was going to cheat just don’t let her find out or bring it home to her. Later they got divorced but not because of cheating (she left because of something she thought was worse) and years later when she was talking with her brothers they started telling stories about the women they were with while they were hanging with her husband and how they all had women they were sleeping with. Yeah her brothers were doing that right alongside her husband. Anyway I don’t hold it against my mom when she says that men are dogs. Of course she knows that people have successful happy relationships but she still is jaded.

  33. catmom1 says:

    While doing laundry, it occurred to me that Kyle has become JillZ 2.0. Klye started out very popular, then started creating drama, talking behind peoples backs, plotting against people (allegedly), was shocked (shocked, I tell you) that people were turned off by her actions, and lastly, can’t seem to get out of her own way.

    • T-Rex says:

      And VileKyle is also riding that big ole boat down the River of DE-NIAL, because she doesn’t realize how many folks have turned against her, she seriously thinks that she is one of the most liked HW and she is a Fan Fav, sound familiar.

    I thought judges were a little cold to Lisa on DWTS the other night. I am not complaining about the scores. I’m referring to the way the gave feedback to Lisa. Just very short and cold. IMO.

    I wonder if the Human Stain is a friend of the judges… This tweet is from Nov 2012. She tweeted three times about DWTS that day and again the next day. I wonder if she’s still loves the show (her words not mine) 4 months later…

    • iceNfire says:

      Wasn’t Jillzy friends with judge when B was on SWTS? It didn’t hurt B and I was very happy she came in 2nd…she wasn’t that good but the HW’s viewers kept her in – imo

    • Powell says:

      She’s probably not. You see real celebs in the audience all the time. She was on HWs so they may have had tickets since its easier to get into places if you’re a celeb.

      • iceNfire says:

        I will never forget when Amazon-Gate was going on and Jillzy was seated right behind the judges on DWTS…LoL Poor A.Chandler thought the world was out to get her and her cat/dog

  35. L.A. Chica says:

    Hey Diana, I posted up above when you talked about your daughter suffering from kidney stones. Just in case you don’t go back up there I thought to repost here:

    Diana, I’m sorry your daughter is in so much pain. Yes, I’ll pray for her but in the meantime may I suggest making her some parsley tea? It’s best to make it from fresh parsley, both leaves and stems. If you have parsley growing at your house or hers then include the roots, too. It should help her pain and to dissolve the stones.

    • Catseye says:

      Interesting info about Parsley! I always add it to my homemade soup.

      • iceNfire says:

        Very interesting ty Chica…wonder if it is good for any other pain

        • L.A. Chica says:

          I don’t know about general pain, but I do know it’s good for helping to relieve pain due to UTIs and kidney stones.

          It works well for cats, too, which are prone to have issues with their kidneys. A good book to refer to for that use is Dr. Pitcairn’s Guide to Natural Health for Dogs and Cats. I’ve successfully used his advice from the book to treat my dogs for various ailments, including cancer, and when I lent it to friends with a cat who had renal problems, they said following his advice help tremendously and was actually the opposite of what their vet was recommending, which wasn’t working.

          Anyway, parsley tea is very helpful for human kidneys, too.

          • iceNfire says:

            Copied and pasted Thanks Chica 🙂

          • chismosa says:

            Chica, is this a well-known book ? I want to get it now that i hear this from you.
            Our younger doggie, (about to be 9) just was found to have a heart murmur — and he’s our healthy one! i’m so sad. Our other has IBS/IB type disease. Poor guys…. 😦

            And i keep hearing about cancer diagnoses on doggies. i’m so sad
            Let me know about this book, i think i may want to order it!

            Diana, best of luck to you and your daughter, ouchie. Are those caused by deposits of some vitamin or mineral? Genetic?

            • L.A. Chica says:

              Chismosa, I think it’s probably fairly well known among people who are into integrative and wholistic care, as it’s been sold in the book section of health food stores, but you can also buy it at places like Barnes & Noble. It was first published in 1995 (that’s when I first bought it) and has been updated since.

              I left out a word in the title, it’s actually called “Dr. Pitcairn’s Complete Guide to Natural Health for Dogs and Cats,” and it’s published by Rodale Press.

              I used it to bring a street dog we’d found back to health, he was scrawny and had some skin problems. Later, when he developed oral melanoma, I used Dr. Pitcairn’s advice for changing his diet and adding supplements. Our vet had given him 6 months to live but he lived another two years. And I truly believe the only reason the cancer returned so quickly and aggressively when it did was because he’d experiences a severely traumatic incident.

              My dog had just had a checkup with X-rays and the vet said he was completely clear. Then a couple weeks later when I was out of town he was on a walk (on leash) with a dog sitter, and an unleashed pit bull ran up and attacked him. It took the dog sitter’s 6′ tall, 200 lb son to save my dog, and they rushed him to the animal hospital where he had to be stitched up. He was injured pretty badly. About a month after that he seemed to be suffering from more than just his injuries and he’d lost his appetite, so we took him back to the vet. New X-rays showed his body was riddled with cancer; I tried to make him comfortable as long as I could but in a few months we had to make the hard decision to let him go and end his suffering. It was horrible.

              Like I said, I really believe he’d have stayed healthy because of the Pitcairn protocol I was following for him, if it hadn’t been for the attack.

                Chica, so sorry about your dog. 😦 Thanks for the book info, I am going to get that.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                OH no, I’m so sorry about your dog. That is so sad that your innocent little baby had to endure that attack. I just don’t understand why that has to happen.

              • chismosa says:

                God darnit Chica I just wrote you a huge response.

                Ughhhhhh! What is going on here !?

                So sorry for you, and THANK you for the book information

    The timing of Caroline’s maybe my husband cheated (but no long term affairs) is because he is a man makes me wonder why now? For someone who is supposed to give good advice on all things family….has Caroline given Albert “hall passes”?

    • iceNfire says:

      I don’t understand the hall pass thing, in my mind it goes like this:
      “Yes Honey you go out and make some random woman feel really really good and I’ll wait right here for you.”

    • chismosa says:

      i am just catching up now on the blog- and i just think, i don’t know how many brothers Albert has- but look at how Tommy was and how blatant that was when he was prepping to get married to Dina, on a TV SHOW BEING FILMED FOR THE WORLD about his dalliances. This leads me to think Al and Tommy grew up in a home where this was done by the father and so it’s nothing odd. Plus the alleged ‘connections’ Al’s father had because of how he was killed/ connotations there/ gouma… etc….

      Hate the Don, hope her sales tank. She and her kids and all the other HWs of NJ need to be GONE!

    Bethenny is going to be on The Neighbors tonight. I love that show.

    • Boobah says:

      I actually like that show also, Powell. I don’t catch it that often now that Survivor has started, but from what I saw, it was funny. Maybe I’ll watch tonight and catch Survivor online.

      • mrs peabody says:

        Watch the one where the alien wife was acting like a NJ housewife, it was the funniest thing to watch, esp her talking head to the wall

    • chismosa says:

      i love Suburgatory! i can’t believe it, didn’t think i would and just adore the show. I don’t watch anything on ABC at all except Nightline. (i also love Happy Endings but that’s been sent to siberia for now… 😦 )

  39. AZGirl says:

    O.K I re-watched the clips from this week and previews of the reunion.
    Brandi solidified me as a fan for 2 reasons: First, the HS with Brandi saying that “Faye placed her d#ck on the table and decided we needed to talk” is priceless. Faye had no business injecting herself into that conversation. It was about a text Brandi sent Marisa not about Adrienne. Talk about obviously trying to be relevant on the last day of filming. So stupid.

    Second, the preview of Reunion #2 and Andy is saying to Taylor “Sounds like you are head over heels in love” and Taylor nods yes. Brandi is like “That is so f#cked up”. You know Brandi is right. Taylor is guilty of doing what LeAnne did to Brandi. Taking another married woman’s husband and having an affair. Less than a year from her own husband’s suicide no less.
    Meanwhile……Richard’s sisters are crying,,,,crying,,,, and more crying…..give me a break.

  40. realhousewifeva says:

    Someone on twitter asked Camille who she talks to from the show and she replied “Kyle and Brandi”. Adrienne no longer has need for the ladies that stood in support of her all season.

    This is upsetting. A 16-year old boy died when he went into cardiac arrest on a middle school soccer field. Dispatchers at 911 got three calls for help but no one knew what the address was. They only knew they were at Wilmington Middle School. After initially going to the wrong address an ambulance finally arrived on the scene but it was too late, the boy had died.

    I just Googled “Wilmington Middle School” and got an address and map within 5 seconds. Why didn’t the 911 dispatchers have this capability? Well, now – after this tragic incident – they do but it’s being reported on the news that there are still no protocols in place for staff to use it. WTF? It’s not rocket science, it’s Google. I’m dumbfounded.

  43. iceNfire says:

    Well I’ve gotten away with cereal for breakfast and shrimp cocktails with crackers for lunch, now I Have to cook dinner…did nothing else today. Thanks for having me 🙂

        I need help…my lying has reached an all time low…who lies about THE CHILDREN???…I have reached rock bottom…

        • BB says:

          How could you lie about THE CHILDREN!

          • LaineyLainey says:

            LOL!!!! Jeepers remember when Aviva said that,…they were all eating and drinking…and then Aviva declared what it was all about (THE CHILDREN) and their eyes got really big…(ramona and sonja)…I would have spit my food out if I’d been there. She went from all sweet to FULL BLOWN RAGE in 2 seconds. So entertaining. (sadly)

            • BB says:

              I hope Aviva returns (for entertainment value), but George can go away. Lol.

            • L.A. Chica says:

              Oh my gosh, I do remember that. 😆 It was hilarious! No, wait – it was shocking. No, hilarious! No… Shocking! Hilarious! Shocki– quick, somebody slap me! I’m losing control! Aviva’s influence is…too strong…must… resist…

              Is that cray-cray really coming back? 😕

              • LaineyLainey says:

                If they don’t cast Aviva, then you would do nicely in her place, L.A. chica…I loved that re-enactment of the Aviva-like conversation style!! LOL

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              She was a total nut job…I wonder what her persona will be if she returns. She can’t do crazy again…right???

              • LaineyLainey says:

                She will hold it in for as long as she can…and then BOOM GOES THE DYNAMITE.

                  I’m sure it won’t take long for Ramonja to push her buttons.

                    Ramonja^^^that always cracks me up. Sounds like a really hazardous cleaning solution. Ammonia?

                • catmom1 says:

                  If she comes back, I wonder if her father, George, will come back.

                  • LaineyLainey says:

                    He’s been passed around the Lynnfam so many times, I wonder if he’ll have the energy.

                    • catmom1 says:

                      I’m sure he’ll still have the desire, even if he lacks the energy. (Still cringing from the memory of George and Sonja on that bed at the restaurant in Fla.)

      It is VERY good. I really like it.

            I’m over my mother issues…talking to you helped.
            I’m sorry-that was a lie…

              The are the best thing-Lainey likes skimpy Oreos so don’t ask her about them. They are new and they are spectacular !!!

            • LaineyLainey says:

              She and NJBev have MEGA STUFFED OREOS, I have regular ones! 🙂

              • LaineyLainey says:

                That was supposed to be a sad smiley face. no just a sad face. 😥

              • L.A. Chica says:

                I’ll take Oreos any which way, but now I want to try the Mega ones.

                • LaineyLainey says:

                  I know!!! I was fine with my regular ones, but NJBev and Jill were all smacking their lips at me tossing filling at each other (in slow motion)…then the milk came…ah, the milk. It was a veritable MEGA STUFFED ORGY of EPIC proportions. I just sat there with regular oreo in my teeth, mouth hanging open…staring.

                  • L.A. Chica says:

                    The vision you describe is too funny! LOL And very persuasive.

        Maybe I’ll catch it on demand.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          The actress who plays the mom…wow! She is so understated and cool. She does a good job. The actor who plays Norman is good, too; he is sweet. So sweet…shy…but then…hmmmm..They lull you into a state of comfort,…”oh, this isn’t so bad”… Then the last enigmatic scene quietly comes in.. fade to black…and I was saying “Ok, what was that? What just happened? Hey!!! who was that?? WHAT’S HAPPENING???”

      • Nancy says:

        The owners of this pug have put out many videos of their pets and this little Maggie is
        treated like a queen as she should be. How many cats do you have?

        • catmom1 says:

          I am the domestic servant to two felines. Their names are Tigger Aloiucus McGee (aka Tigger, The Orange Monster) and Princess Marie Louise Purrsalot (aka Princess, Little Girl). Thanks for asking.

          • Nancy says:

            What lovely names. We have a Mona and a Roxie which sounds like two prostitutes names but there was a reason behind it we think. lol
            One is a Blue Point and the other is a Seal Point. Both are feral but have come a very
            long way I’m happy to report.

            • catmom1 says:

              I love the feeling you get from earning an animals trust. Your babies sound wonderful. Mine are strictly inside cats, adopted from the shelter as kittens. Was originally just going to get Princess (she’s an outrageous flirt with a sense of humor), but Tigger had me when I picked him up and he licked my ear the same way one of my long time cats had. I just wimpered and said, “Yes, I’ll take them both.”

              • Nancy says:

                That’s funny as the same thing happened to us. I went to get one and came home with two. They are sisters but they are anything but friends. They are wonderful animals.
                We had a Tiger once.

                • catmom1 says:

                  The kids sort of named themselves. Tigger is….well…..a handful. Sort of the like the Winnie the Pooh Tigger. I think he’s part Abysinnian (sp?). He loves heights and is enthralled by water. Very intelligent, you can just see the gears turning behind his eyes. Wants to be involved in everything. I’m so grateful he came home with me and not someone who would try to “manage” him. Would have led to great frustration for both cat and owner. He likes to play catch with a yarn ball, and has a thing about leaping onto my shoulders to “help me” when I’m watering plants in the house. Would not go over well with a “normal” person, and I’m the only one he does this with.

                  • Nancy says:

                    It sounds like it was meant to be. I often wonder what Mona and Roxie would be like
                    with different humans. So glad I don’t need to find out. Does Tiger hang out on your shoulders when you are sitting down?

                    • catmom1 says:

                      Yes, when he’s in the mood, which is often when I’m on the computer. Princess does the same thing. She also likes to hang out on my shoulders when I’m on the couch. She marks the heck out of my hair (I can just hear her saying, “Mine, Mine, Mine!!!”) and will wrap her paws around my neck.

                    • Nancy says:

                      You are lucky. Our Tiger used to stay on my husbands shoulders all the time.
                      Roxie loves to go for my hair when I’m trying to sleep. They are entertaining.
