Party in Vegas for New Jersey Housewives, Kandi Burruss Music Drama Plus Andy was the Host of ATL Reunion / Project Runway

Party in Vegas for New Jersey Housewives, Kandi Burruss Music Drama Plus Andy was the Host of ATL Reunion by NoMoreDrama

Let’s catch up with our New Jersey ladies.  A week ago Melissa, Jacqueline, and Teresa and their husbands were spotted in LaGuardia airport.  Looks like they were on their way to Arizona at the time.  Jacqueline Laurita tweeted:  “Does anyone know a great steak restaurant in the city of Tuscan, AZ? How is @Flemings ?” and Richie Wakile tweeted “Good morning! Happy St. Patrick’s day!!! @KathyWakile & I are celebrating from beautiful Arizona!”

It must have been a short trip, because Kathy Wakile was on QVC yesterday pushing her cannoli kit.  Has anyone tried it?

Meanwhile Melissa Gorga was in Vegas with Joe celebrating her birthday yesterday.

Kathy and Richie and  their daughter Victoria flew to Vegas to join them.  I think Victoria is 18 or 19 – isn’t she a freshman in college?  So I find this tweet of Kathy’s disturbing – especially the hashtag.

kathy tweet
I don’t find it funny that Melissa would say that an underage girl would get #WhiteGirlWasted in Vegas.  Sorry.  I just don’t.  I’m not even sure what the #WhiteGirl part means to be honest.  Someone help me out with this.

Meanwhile Victoria tweeted:

victoria2

That could mean just about anything …

They were getting on the plane this morning …   I think Richie and Kathy should talk to each other before they tweet out nonsense.  Obviously if Melissa said Victoria was going to get WhiteGirlWasted in Vegas, it’s no surprise that the Wakile’s are coming.

richie

I’m not sure if Teresa Giudice is on the trip.  She has two appearances for her Milania Hair Care line in New Jersey tomorrow.  Caroline Manzo was in New York last night at a book launch party for “Let me tell you something.”  It’s not clear if Caroline went to Arizona either.

Well sadly, my favorite housewife, Kandi Burruss, may have a history of not following through with the “talent” she nurtures.  I put talent in quotes because it’s a stretch to call Kim Zolciak talented – in singing at least.  It’s hard to say what really happened between Kandi and Kim.  Kandi claims she wasn’t paid enough for producing and her role in writing Kim’s hit “Tardy for the Party.”  Kim claims she overpaid Kandi, and that her daughter Brielle actually wrote the song.  In a press release Kim alleges that Kandi is just suing her as a publicity stunt.  Having castmate Phaedra Parks as her lawyer does make that seem likely.  As far as the song, how I remember it is the original “Tardy to the Party” that was introduced Season One of the show was introduced as a country song written by Brielle’s music teacher.  NeNe sang it for us, and it was a real NOTHING like the song Kandi produced for Kim in Season Two.  Kandi was clearly looking to show off her chops as a song writer/producer when she joined the show Season Two, and, quite frankly, if she could get a song out of Kim (autotune is magic) she should be able to get a song out of anyone – so mission accomplished.

I’ve always suspected Kandi never in her wildest dreams thought that Tardy for the Party would be a hit, and therefore didn’t bother with a contract.  Season Three Kandi produced two songs on the show – “The Ring Didn’t Mean a Thing” for Kim, and “Closet Freak” for Lawrence.  This was the season with the infamous bus tour where Kandi was testing out songs and Kim was opening for her.  Kim and NeNe got into a fight that lasted through several states and continued on into Thomas Kramer‘s home in Miami.  This season, Kim and Kandi couldn’t come to an agreement on a contract for the song, and it was never released.  As for Lawrence Washington, on the Hairdressers Tell All special that started this season, he let on that his single had never been released as well, but didn’t mention why.  Now the rumor is that Kandi wanted a cut to market the single, and when Lawrence didn’t agree, she had the single pulled from Itunes.  Hmmm.  Lawrence isn’t really talking, but he did tweet to confirm that he was never paid for his single:

lawrence2

lawrence1I find it really strange that Kandi couldn’t reach an agreement with either Kim or Lawrence after putting all that work into producing their singles.

Stranger still is the situation with Matthew Solomon.  Last year Kandi did a pilot for the Kandi Factory – the show that is set to begin on Bravo next month.  The show took two people and put them through singer boot-camp, with Kandi as their mentor.  At the end of the show, Matthew was declared the winner with his song “Put Your Middle Finger Up.”  His song was also pulled from Itunes.  Here are some of his tweets/retweets:

matthew2

matthew3

matthew

Yet a month ago he seemed optimistic that his single would be on Itunes.

matthew 4

Meanwhile, Kandi fired back at Kim’s claim that the lawshit over Tardy for the Party was just a publicity stunt to extend Kandi’s 15 minute of fame.

kandi

Meanwhile, castmate Porsha Stewart may not be returning to the show next year.  Porsha was portrayed as a dingbat, but that’s not the issue.  Apparently husband Kordell is steamed over how he was portrayed, i.e. as a controlling nut job.  Kordell refused to tape the reunion, even though all the other husbands showed up.  You can read all about it here on Rolling Out.  Kordell Stewart is not the first househusband to dislike his edit.  Alexis Bellino’s husband suffered a similar fate, and severely limited his screen time.

_____

Mystery solved.  Andy Cohen WAS the host of the Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion, and they got enough for a three-hours of drama.  In this spoof on Justin Timberlake, Andy Cohen onto the reunion set, fist pumping Cynthia along the way, voicing over: “Some one asked me.  So.  So are you just done with housewives?  Housewives mean more to me than anyone else in the world.  At the end of the season I only have one chance to ? these ladies. I obsess over it, before anyone else can even think of it.  265 days a year.  Donkey booties, stallion booties, wigs, weaves, close your legs to married men, Gone with the Wind fabulous.  Will a bird hit me in the face? Will I get pushed like a rag doll? Will someone produce documentation that proves absolutely nothing? Is somebody going to out my past as a stripper?  We’ll have to wait.”  Then he turns around and the black and white film fades to color.  He says, “I’m ready.”  Watch it here.

______

Finally, in news too strange to be true, Bethenny Frankel’s five million dollar condo isn’t hers.  She put it in one of her assistant’s names.  In news that makes you go huh, this latest insight into Bethenny’s strange world was reported by NaughtyButNice Rob.  I am scratching my head over this one.  Any thoughts on why she’d do that?

Project Runway “He Said, She Said” by BB

Last week there was no winner and Amanda was sent home.  The judges have picked new teams; Richard, Layana and Samantha are a team; Stanley and Patricia are a team; and Daniel and Michelle are a team.

The designers meet Tim at Lord and Taylor and they are told they will be designing a ready-to-wear look for Spring using the signature rose of Lord and Taylor as their inspiration.  The winner will have their look featured at Lord and Taylor and on Lord and Taylor’s website.

Each designer will be making their own look.  Because Richard thinks Layana threw him under the bus at the last runway, he refuses to even speak to her.  It’s a little immature of him in my opinion.  Stanley gets on Patricia’s last nerve by micro-managing her the whole time.  He has not been on a losing team yet and he doesn’t want to start now.  Michelle decides she’s going to make a rain vest over a Spring looking dress.  She cringes when she sees the pink fabric Daniel chooses for the jacket and shorts he’s planning to make.

When Tim comes in, he tells Samantha if her heart cut out is done well, it may be just the youthful look Lord and Taylor is looking for.  Samantha likes the leather detail of Layana’s dress.  Richard thinks her look is a little hard, and Tim doesn’t disagree, but if she can stand by her design, then she should do it.  Layana doesn’t think Richard’s design is creative enough.  It’s too easy.  Tim asks if he’s concerned that the judges may have already seen his look.  Richard says no.

Tim tells Patricia her design looks extremely expensive to do.  He tells her a sleek Capri pant is a good counterpart to her billowy top and she decides to simplify her look at little.  Stanley is making a shift dress and Tim asks him what’s new about his design.  Tim suggests a different collar or cowl on his dress.  Stanley disagrees and he’s sticking with his gut.

When Tim sees Michelle’s vest he sees gloomy and when he sees her dress sketch he sees joyous.  He suggests she lose the vest altogether.  Michelle loves the vest because it’s cool and the dress is not her passion, but she knows she has to make it.  Tim asks Michelle what she thinks of Daniel’s pink jacket and shorts.  She says she not a “pink” girl and that a young, hip girl wouldn’t walk in and buy his design.

Daniel decides to take his Joan Collins jacket apart (which makes him burst into tears) and make a dress instead.  He’s sooooo dramatic about it.  He takes his frustration out on Michelle and starts calling her a liar about something he says she said.   He tells Michelle she said his design has to be for a 20-year old.  She says he misinterpreted what she was trying to say.  Daniel and Richard are quite the drama queens tonight.

The next morning Daniel tells Michelle it’s all good and of course, all the designers are  scrambling to finish their designs.  When Tim comes to get them, they are nowhere near ready and Tim tells them it’s going to be a scandalous walk to the runway because the models are not dressed.

The judges tonight are Heidi, Nina, Rachel Roy and guest judge Bonnie Brooks, president of Lord and Taylor, or as Heidi says, “Lort” and Taylor.

Patricia's outfit

Patricia’s outfit

Stanley's dress

Stanley’s dress

I like Patricia’s coral top and Capri pants.  It’s what I call a dressy-casual wear.  Stanley leans over and tells her it looks pretty.  Stanley’s shift dress is also a pretty coral color.  It’s very chic and fits perfectly.  Patricia tells Stanley “Now that’s what I’m talking about” and gives him a high five.

Richard's dress

Richard’s dress

Samantha's dress

Samantha’s dress

Richard’s pink and black jersey dress is OK.  I’m not excited about it.  The fit is nice.  OK.  I totally do not get Samantha’s dress.  I don’t like it.  Those colors together are ugly and do not say Spring.  It’s not even cute to me.

Layana's dress

Layana’s dress

Daniel's dress

Daniel’s dress

Layana’s dress is pretty, but nothing to write home about.  I like the way the leather in the back looks.

Daniel’s dress is again, OK, but not that exciting.  I don’t mind the pink bubble gum color, but it could have been a little shorter or something to make it stand out.

Michelle is the winner

Michelle’s dress

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Michelle’s chartreuse dress with the taupe leather trim.  I can’t even tell it’s leather, but she says it is.  If she had decided to put that black rain vest over it, I would have cried.  Have I mentioned that I LOVE Michelle’s dress?

Now what do the judges think?  They think Patricia and Stanley’s scores are high enough to keep them in the competition so they are deemed safe.  They think Michelle and Daniel are the winners of this challenge.  That means Layana, Richard and Samantha are on the bottom again.

Michelle – Heidi would be first in line to buy that dress.  It’s not too literal and she loves it.  Rachel thinks it’s smart, easy and she can tell Michelle put a lot of thought into it.  Nina thinks it’s great looking and likes the presentation of the whole look Michelle put together.  Bonnie says it was the best use of the Lord and Taylor accessories and she would love to own the dress.

Daniel – Heidi has seen his dress for years.  Nina likes the bold color but thinks it’s a little conservative.  It should have a little more detail.  Bonnie also loves the color.  Rachel tells Daniel to stop thinking and start feeling and he’ll do better.  Heidi tells Daniel to thank Michelle for talking him out of the jacket and shorts.

Samantha – Heidi has a hard time seeing the inspiration and thinks it’s very junior.  Rachel appreciates all the design elements and calls it youthful and unique.  Nina likes that Samantha took a risk, but it was not needed for this particular challenge.  She doesn’t hate it.  Bonnie just says cute dress.

Richard – Heidi would buy it because it’s an easy no-brainer dress.  Nina’s not impressed and calls it very generic.  Bonnie says it’s too dressy for day and she’s confused by it.  Rachel doesn’t like the styling Richard did for the whole look.

Layana – Nina likes the leather but not the print.  She likes the overall design.  Bonnie likes the edginess but it may be a little too tough-looking.  Rachel likes the modern lines and cut.  Heidi thinks it’s a super sexy shape, but the wrong print.

Heidi asks the losers who should go home.  Richard says Samantha because of the construction of her dress.  Samantha thinks Richard should go because of his simple design.  Layana thinks Richard should go because she’d rather see a collection from Samantha.

After the judges have their discussion, we know that Michelle is the obvious winner of this challenge.  Either Richard or Samantha will be going home, probably Richard because Nina really doesn’t like his dress at all and Nina usually wins.

Of course, Michelle is declared the winner of this challenge.  That was a no-brainer to me.  Wow, Nina didn’t get her way this time.  Richard is in and Samantha is going home.  I’m a little surprised.

  1. Powell says:

    Good morning happy Friday. I hope everyone is well. It’s TGIF! Have a great day.

  2. Powell says:

    Contessa I hope you are feeling a bit better with your knee. Diva I hope you & Mr. Ford had a restful night. Diana I hope Lizzi’s surgery went well. Big HUGS to you all & speedy recovery.

    • Well said Powell! I second this and hope everyone mentioned is feeling a bit better today. Sending healing energy out to all of you….and anyone else here having health issues!! HUGS!

      • Contessa says:

        I feel so good around all of you, can’t say enough how much I adore each and everyone on this blog. I am feeling pretty good. I removed my bandage (toes to mid thigh) to reveal two small incisions on my knee (arthroscopic surgery). Very swollen today, but pain is minor and have cut down pain meds by half. Thank you all again for all the support! XXOO

  3. Iowagirl says:

    Gonna be a grandma today at 2:00! I’m so excited, I am hoping for a girl.

  4. Boobah says:

    Thank you NMD and BB for a great blog. Say whaaaaaa?? Real World season 1 marathon tonight! That’ so crazy. I might have to tune in!

    Hope everyone has a great day today!

  5. Rebecca says:

    How disgusting is the hotel room Melissa Gorga (aka Medusa the Gorgan) posing in?
    GAAAAGGG!

  6. Rebecca says:

    I take anything posted by Naughty But Nice Rob with a grain of salt. He alludes to property records but does not show any. Putting property in a non-relative’s name is a HUGE liability. You put that title in the LLC, not a person now responsible for taxes, insurance, and any unwarranted work.

    • Brigid Ashwood says:

      *like*

    • T-Rex says:

      Yeppers and now that NNNNRob no longer works for HuffPO, some claim he “left” personally I think they fired him or didn’t renew his contract, he even has less credibility, if that is even possible in my book. If he has the proof then show the paperwork.

  7. I think Victoria Wakile has a great head on her shoulders and I wouldn’t read anything into those comments other then ironic joking. I think she’s probably straight laced and they all know it and were having some fun. Here’s the definition of White Girl Wasted. http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=White%20Girl%20Wasted

    • Powell says:

      Hey Brigid. How are you? I follow you on Pinterest. Great artwork. 🙂

      • Brigid Ashwood says:

        HI Powell!! *waves* I’m so busy! How are you? So glad you like the art! Whats your name on Pinterest? I’ll follow you back. I’m on here faithfully every day. I’m always thinking of you guys, I just don’t tend to comment much. 🙂

    • Brigid Ashwood says:

      For the record NMD I don’t like jokes that have race tags in them either. Like White Trash etc. It still feels racist to me. If I want to call someone trash I just say they are trash I don’t need to say what color it is! So my point is, I totally get why it made you uncomfortable. 🙂

  8. Brigid Ashwood says:

    I don’t think Bethenney having her house in someone’s name other than her own is strange at all. She’s got a big fortune, high profile and large business. It’s pretty common for business people in similar situations to take measures to protect their privacy and their assets. I’m willing to bet it’s not actually in the assistants name but rather that they are listed as the resident of record, again to protect her privacy. Naughty Rob isn’t really well know for his accuracy or his appreciation of Bethenney is he?

    • Powell says:

      He doesn’t know anything about business realestate.

      • BB says:

        He doesn’t know much about much. For a while there I twas under the impression he was trying to be buddy buds with Andy and Bravo. If so, messing with Bethenny is probably not the smartest idea. Maybe that didn’t work out for him.

        • T-Rex says:

          BB not only that I would bet that Mz Andy probably knows a thing or two about trusts, estates and real estate since he probably owns his own NYC pad that way too, soRobDumbassNOclassShuter is probably on the NFI list for BravoTV

    • Rebecca says:

      You don’t pass along liability to an assistant who cannot afford a fraction of the liability. You set up a “limited” liability company and turn title over to it. Setting up an LLC with the name BB7TT543, LLC, as an example, is so random no one would guess or bother to research who the agents are.

      • AZGirl says:

        You are exactly right. Expensive real estate is commonly put in an LLC. An LLC named members being also LLC’s. Names so random they don’t know who owns the property.

      • Catseye says:

        That makes a lot more sense to me.

      • T-Rex says:

        Rebecca in addition the “assistant” may be set up as the person who is designated, noted as the DESIGNEE on documents who is to receive paperwork for the LLC doesn’t mean they have anything vested in the LLC nor own any part of anything the LLC owns. NNNRob is know for Bethenny bashing with very little facts in hand when doing so. Look he got fired, or his contract wasn’t renewed at HuffPO in my opinion because they looked at him as a LIABILITY for all his half-truths and un-Factual information.

        • Rebecca says:

          My concern really is that this is a fishing expedition so his lazy ass doesn’t have to do any research himself. It’s FREAKY that he is trying to find out ownership details on a celebrity apartment where a little child lives.

          Lunchtime conversation:

          Rob: “So what will happen to Bethenny’s apartment in the divorce?”
          Jill:” If she was smart she’d put the the aprtment in someone elses’s name so Jason couldn’t touch it.”
          Rob:”How do you find out who owns that apartment.”
          JIll:”Post something about it. The Bethenny freaks will look it up for you to prove you wrong.”
          Rob:”Oooh, that’s good. You’re so smart, Jill.”

          • mrs peabody says:

            is new York a community property state?

          • T-Rex says:

            I looked at the Deed of Sale at the property appraisers office and she is listed on there under the GRANTEE/BUYER along with a legal office that set up the trust that also owns the property. I looked at the other deeds and since there are a couple of other pretty famous folks that live there, they also did the SAME thing. It is ABSURD for anyone in any fashion to think that Jason Hoppy did not know this was going on is ABSURD especially since Jason has extensive Real Estate knowledge, he was probably the one to SUGGEST this to keep their names off the paperwork for privacy issues. Apparently this is a VERY common practice and if I can find the LLC paperwork, I would bet that Molly Hayden is listed as the DESIGNEE of that LLC. Again this means NOTHING, this does NOT mean she owns the apartment, this does not mean Bethenny did this to keep Jason from receiving monies from the apartment, etc. The LLC or Trust paperwork will be where all of the particulars will be spelled out! ShuterIsShittier has no clue of what he speaks.

            • mrs peabody says:

              I find it hard to believe this was done to keep Jason from getting any of the apartment, I find it hard to believe he would not have known how it was being set up, he does not appear to be a stupid person, he seems very smart to me and I’m sure they followed their attorney’s advise to the t in setting up this apartment in whatever way was best for them. I take anything that guy says with a half a grain of salt. I actually think half of what I read about people in the rags is false and am highly suspect of the other half of what is written about them.

              • T-Rex says:

                I guarantee you the TRUST is in both Jason and Bethenny’s names, they bought the home TOGETHER and were happily married at that time, and Jason was in on all of the documents, and signed them as well. This is another defamatory story by an asshole loser with a grudge that wouldn’t know the truth or fact if it bit him in the arse. He probably blames her for him getting “canned” over at HuffPO for another defamatory, untrue story about B.

                • mrs peabody says:

                  I have no doubt about that as they were a couple at the time they bought the apartment and probably assumed they would be together for ever. We really don’t know what went wrong in the marriage and I am sad for them it did not work out but with all the money Bethenny has she could easily replace this apartment with one just as nice so I don’t see her ever thinking of trying to have it in her name only and as you state and I agree they were a couple at the time.

                • Powell says:

                  Rightarooni!

  9. plainviewsue says:

    So the Red Queen Caroline Manzo will be on WWHL this Thursday. Obviously promoting her book before it hits the 99 cent pile. I don’t recall a HW ever being on the show when their season isn’t on, but I could be wrong.

    Let’s see if Andy grills her about Al’s infidelity that way he grilled Teresa. Caroline said she can forgive what has happened long ago, and Al is a man. What the hell does that mean???? That it’s okay for men to cheat? So it’ll be ok for Vito to cheat on Lauren? Okay for her sons to cheat? But dear lord. Let’s disect Teresa’s marriage all the time.

    That tweet MeGo sent to Victoria & the fact that her mama endorsed it shows the idiocy of these people. I”m sure MeGo was getting whitegirltrashed at that age on a daily basis.

    The Waikile children are not the angels Kathy tries to portray. Joseph is just like his vile father, tweeting disgusting things to people.

    • BB says:

      Caroline would probably justify Vito’s cheating as Lauren’s fault and probably find a way to justify Albie or Chris cheating on their significant others (notice I didn’t say wife for Albie, just in case). Remember, in her own words, Lauren is a bitch and we know in the Don’s eyes, her boys can do no wrong. .

    • Powell says:

      Andy will ask her questions and she’ll say “you’ll have to buy the book to find out.”.

      • Boobah says:

        Just like Jill! I remember how annoyed Andy was by that. Every question was answered, you’ll have to Read The Book. It really was annoying.

  10. AZGirl says:

    Good morning everyone! Beautiful day here in AZ! Sending good vibes to Mr. Ford, Diva and Contessa. Hope you are all doing better today.
    @Iowagirl: Congratulations! Hope the delivery goes well and all are healthy.
    I am taking the first day off from working out in 8 days and I am loving it! Love having this crazy blog to come and chat and relax.

    I commented on Rebecca’s post above regarding that picture of Mel in Vegas. I DON’T KNOW A HOTEL IN VEGAS THAT HAS DECOR DATING BACK TO THE 70’s! That couch, lamp and picture is just gross. They have to be downtown and not on the strip.

    As for Wacky Jacky’s tweet about a steak house in Tucson (yes it is spelled with an “o” not and “a” stupid) El Charro Lodge on River Road has the best steaks in Tucson. Not fancy but the steaks are really great.

    • Rebecca says:

      Do you mean El Corral? Mmmmm – prime rib.

    • Powell says:

      What AZGirl!?! No working out today. 🙂 Just hang out w./us. You are so right about the hotel in Vegas. They must be in the back of the strip. The hotels on the strip are blown up, exploded to smithereens to make way for updated & stylish hotels.

    • mrs peabody says:

      If you read the print at the bottom of the picture it says she’s already for 23rd birthday weekend, I think that is an old picture as she is way past 23.

  11. realhousewifeva says:

    Watching the Season 2 episode where Adrienne causes her dramatics about the email Russell sent Camille threatening to sue. ahhh memories.

  12. Powell says:

    More BH is on. S2. 🙂

  13. Exit4 says:

    I’m glad I wasn’t the only one who thought that Rob story was bizarre. I remember when he said she didn’t make the 120 mil. He tried to decifer a Beam quietly report and decided that since they listed only 8 for acquisitions then she lied. I think Forbes stood by the report. I never thought bethenney was handed a check for 120 mil! I think her compensation is laid out sort of like an athletes….lump sum here, extra down the road eventually totaling 120 million if different things are satisfied. So her deal is worth that amount, just not up front.

    I know he kinda made fun of her having a mortgage as well. Um, this is wrong because?? I don’t know if she’d be able to take a deduction due to income levels, but that’s my first guess. Second guess is that since she has an office in the home, it’s done that way for business reasons. Also, did anyone ever figure out what Beam owns if skinny girl? Obviously, the liqueur aspect, but do they own the food, vitamins, the skin care and the shape wear too? It is possible because its just licensing (Sara lee the baked goods company at one time owned Coach, so food doesn’t just equal food et al in a conglomerate) but was that ever talked about?

    My best guess is that the real owner if that apt is like Rebecca said, an LLC or maybe a trust to keep taxes down. I’m going to assume that if her assistants name is on any documents, she was just a proxy. I know he was alluding to it making the divorce more difficult, which also makes no sense….unless bethenney made her assistant the owner of her property (thus giving her tax liabilities and advantages-not to mention how did she secure the loan), it still belongs to her and falls under community property. The whole thing is beyond nonsensical! Stuck to gossip! Not real wastage, mergers and acquisitions and/or legal and medical issues.

    Something tells me bethenney has the right people telling her exactly what to do!

    • Exit4 says:

      Wastage=estate. Lol

    • Powell says:

      Rob ought to steer clear of any gossip her rights up that contains business & finance cause he doesn’t know anything & it’s sad that he continues to write about B & show his ignorance. He’s not even a good researcher cause if he was he would find the accurate info.

      • Powell says:

        It happens all the time, when people speculate on finances, they come up with an idea without thinking of any consequences. Such as taxes, which is a big one. Or any idea of the number of ways money can be set up to maximize value and decrease liability. Trusts are one way. And just a general idea of how business operates. I’m no “expert” either, but I know some and i did study this stuff in the past and can come up with a logical line of thinking. Rob I think, just doesn’t have any of that background.

        • Powell says:

          Rob didn’t even speculate. In the,Beam deal & now the apartment he looked at one figure,one line & ran w/it. I don’t understand how he wants people to take him seriously.

        • T-Rex says:

          If he doesn’t have any background than he needs to STFU about it! He’s a loser now anyway, he has less than 75 followers and half of those are probably bots.

  14. Good Friday Morning!

    Thanks NMD & BB for the blog! Just SMH over the NJ peeps and their tweets. And I do not know what is up with Kandi, but she should be careful. She has had a good reputation in the music biz for a long while, I would hate to see her ruin it over the reality show.

    Loved Project Runway last night….and Michelle’s dress. I also loved Patricia’s outfit and would totally wear it as well as Richard’s dress. Stanley, for all his micro managing, made a very boring dress. Now….did anyone else feel like the little spurts of drama with everyone was a bit forced, as if they were coached to add a little spice to the show? Then, all of a sudden, they are besties again for the runway? (well, except for Richard and Layana!). I dunno, maybe it’s just me….thinking all reality drama is scripted now. 😛

    Dance the Happy Dance…..It is Friday! Have a great day everyone!

    “Friday Light” post is up at my place (after a heavy week!). Enjoy!

      *waves to Mardrag* Your blog was funny today! 🙂

    • princesspindy says:

      I don’t think that it was manufactured, of course I believed RHs was REAL. But to have to come up with a design and sew it all in one day is really hard. I sometimes take a really long time and go to more than one fabric store just to get the fabric. I can’t imagine having only a half hour to pick fabric, lol. That alone might make me cry. And Daniel made me sad in his TH when he was talking about taking apart something he worked on and loved, I totally got it…. but then I think he was out of line with Michelle and I was over him! His dress was poorly finished on the bottom. Love this show! Also, I think Richard should have gone home, I would much rather see was Sam would come up with.

  15. TexasTart says:

    Good morning everyone. TGIF. I am so tired….this is dedicated to…oh, the list is too long…..you know who you are!

  16. Boobah says:

    MelTH – I didn’t get a chance to say thanks for your Survivor recap. I though of you when the pink manties made their appearance! I agree that Pinky was hell bent on pushing Brandon over the edge. He was nothing but condescending towards Brandon the whole time. Heck, Pinky is that way towards everybody. I am stunned people are dealing with it at all. There must be a reason – maybe taking Pinky to the end, knowing no one will vote for him.
    I am not sure if this had been addressed, but was Pinky really a special ops guy, or whatever he claims to be? I find it incredibly hard to believe.

    • melthehound says:

      Hi Boobah 😀 It’s entirely possible, I think that they are all trying to Boston Rob Pinky. It’s a mistake IMO because he seems to be doing a pretty good job of getting rid of the ones he doesn’t like or seem too eager to please him. All 3 of them so far (Francesca, Brandon, Matt). He appears too stupid to have been any sort of an agent anywhere but his own mind. I think the further we get into the season, the more his tribe mates will see that Brandon was right about him even if he didn’t go about pointing it out in the right way. They’ve all told us at one point or another that they think Pinky is a joke but, he’s still there. I don’t know when the merge is coming but I predict a losing streak for Bikal unless Gota really trips up in the challenges, Their only real physical weak link right now, is Sherri.

      • Boobah says:

        I think Boston Robbing Pinky is a mistake also. As the game moves forward, people will have less and less energy and patience making Pinky really difficult to deal with. (That would be something if another tribe member went ballistic on Pinky) There’s no way anyone can tolerate him for that long, all it’s going to do is weaken the tribe. I wish Brandon didn’t lose it the way he did, I would have rather watched Brandon be a thorn in his side, twisting Pinky up and getting under his skin. I know that’s mean, but Pinky is special type of azzhole that seems to enjoy pissing off other people. I am not fond of people like that.

        • melthehound says:

          I think Brandon could have made a good Pinky nemesis. He definitely screwed up the way he went out. I’m willing to bet a (small) amount of money that when Uncle Russ saw the show, Brandon got kicked in the nuts. Pinky out played him though and that’s part of the game.

    • princesspindy says:

      He was a Federal Agent and he served in the Army.

      • Boobah says:

        That’s just crazy!!! Holy chit, I was almost certain that he was lying about that. Geez, I wonder what type of work he did. Scary.
        Thanks for the info, PP.

        • princesspindy says:

          There are lots of different kinds of Federal Agents, the woman that vouched for him at the Finale said that he was really good at the academy….so I think even the Administrative people go thru the academy training. I have a hard time picturing him as a field agent….ippho.

          • melthehound says:

            Didn’t know that part of the story.. I still don’t think he’s as bright when it comes to people as he claims he is.

            • princesspindy says:

              I think he is intelligent and “book smart” but he lacks social skills, he is inappropriate in his interactions, so he comes across awkward….he is definitely a legend in his own mind…. 🙂

  17. T-Rex says:

    RobDumbassNOclassShuter got it wrong again, okay folks I pulled the deed of sale, links above and also pulled the Power of Attorney paperwork assigned to the case for the Condominium association. Ms Molly Hayden is listed as the “Trustee” of MYC Trust, she is NOT the owner only signing the documents as the TRUSTEE. Now, we all know that Jason Hoppy has a real estate background and in NO WAY was this transaction or Trust setup without his knowledge, in fact he probably was the one to help with the lawyers to SET THIS up! It is not uncommon in NYC to due this in fact there are several other units in this building alone setup this way. All of this paperwork is completely accessible online and RobDumBassNOclassShuter has already proved his has zero business sense, now he confirms to the world he has ZERO real estate knowledge. To point out a TRUSTEE can be an owner(most times it is NOT), but mostly it someone TRUSTED to work on the behalf of the owners of the TRUST. Good Grief he is REALLY one stupid idiot. Unless he has the TRUST paperwork, which he doesn’t that’s really the only way to show who does and doesn’t own the property. The moron could have easily pulled this information regarding the sale, it took me all of 10 minutes to realize that Bethenny’s assistant could not possibly own that property. Oh, and to RobDumBassNOclassShuter look at the POA paperwork the OWNER of that property is clearly stated as the MYC Trust it’s on page ONE. Page TWO is where it clearly states that Ms. Hayden is ONLY the Trustee. Grrrrrr I really hate stupid people like him

    • Powell says:

      T-Rex that’s what I said. If Rob did his work as easily as it was for you to pull the info he could have too. Rob Shuter is an idiot & keeps playing idiot moves when it comes to B. All he cares about is gossiping.& not backing up anything w/proof. It’s utterly ridiculous & Huffington should pat themselves on the back for no longer having him as an employee.

      • T-Rex says:

        Seriously all that guy does all day is spew vomit into a blog from his computer, with no proof, no facts, nothing, why anyone even reads him is just beyond me. I would love for someone to TWEET to him all of that information to show him for the RobDumbassNOclassShuter that he is. Bethenny is probably laughing her ass off at his stupidity. Gets her name in the press for free, everyone that does any homework will see he is WRONG and she gets the last laugh as he comes across as the DUMBASS LOSER.

        • Powell says:

          I bet she is laughing. Someone will probably tweet Rob the info. There’s a whole lot of other people that have done the same 10 minute research.

    • Exit4 says:

      Right. It’s the same as wills/estates in a way. Someone has a bunch of assets and those assets are managed by a trustee. Usually a lawyer or a financial advisor. They manage the assists, dole them out (say if heirs or the estate owner gets X% per month), approve expenditures (for schooling, medical care, taxes, the trustees salary etc) and sign appropriate paper work when necessary. If its a charitable trust, they make sure the money goes where it needs to. They own NOTHING. Nor does the title trustee mean they have any rights beyond what the trust or estate owners allow. Meaning, if this assistant leaves the business, they are no longer the trustee and that’s that. It’s a job, really. The main part of which in this case is probably writing mortgage checks, condo fees, taxes and so forth.

      I don’t blame the guy for not understanding this stuff, I see on the Internet all the time people trying to decifer things they don’t understand! But do the research, although I don’t think he’d (or alot of other people) would understand it in either case. If it doesn’t say bethenney, they’ll assume it’s not hers.

      • T-Rex says:

        Exit I agree it’s one thing to not understand and question items it’s another thing to post something in a BLOG as FACTS when it’s not, then send tweets out like he knows what he is talking about, which he doesn’t! He has notoriousy shown he wouldn’t know a fact if it bit him in the arse, it’s the reason HuffPO got rid of him because of his lies and liablilties. UGH he is another one that just needs to GO AWAY!

        • Exit4 says:

          True…but let’s face it a lot if bloggers do it to. That’s how I weed out the good from the bad!

    • Exit4 says:

      Oh, I forgot, just because the gone is in a trust, and this girl is the trustee….that doesn’t mean her name is on the deed, the loan etc. except as trustee. Bethenney and Jason at some point would have to sign their own papers. Usually, from what I’ve seen, the individuals go through settlement just line you and I would, sign the many, many papers and then set up the trust later. The reason you do this is because depending on the type of trust you ate setting up, their are different rules and limits to what can be in a trust. So, in essence, they purchased the apt and later do a transfer. All to maximize your tax advantages naturally!

  18. TexasTart says:

    Oooh, I read up yesterday’s blog comments and sure wish I could watch some of the old seasons of BH….I thought about recording when I heard S1 was playing, but my DVR would overflow! It’s not as if I haven’t already seen every BH episode numerous times. 😳

    Contessa, you had to suffer with that knee a long time, I’m so glad you had the surgery and hope the recovery goes well and you can be much more mobile and pain free in the near future!!!!! Same wish to Mr. Ford and Diva I hope you are doing well and put a dance move in your step today as you be workin hard for the money 😉 I hope that Diana’s DD is doing well and next week will be much better for everyone. Sure hope I didn’t leave someone out! I haven’t been able to keep up with it all – life AND the blog, ha ha.

  19. HAPPY FLASHBACK FRIDAY…. patient doing well today…. caretaker is exhausted and can’t quite seem to get azz in gear… need to get into W O R K mode…..hope it’s a busy weekend …

    Speaking of Melissa’s hotel room, I could help but send this tweet to her.

    @melissagorga WTF hotel is that? It looks like a dump. If I were you I’d check underneath the mattress for murdered whores.— Marti(@MomMarti) March 22, 2013

    • T-Rex says:

      RR too funny!!! Could you tweet RobDumbassNOclassShuter on his stupidity of not knowing what a TRUST account nor ANYTHING about Real Estate, that would be great too!

    • Lisa Renee says:

      RR, thats a great tweet! The old phone was the give away for me. I have stayed at the 4 seasons in Vegas in the same room Brandi had (funny story how I ended up in that suite, not my original room) I still wiped down phones, tv remote, a/c controls & anything else I can think of with bleach wipes. I saw that Dateline report with the UV light in hotel rooms & was scarred for life. No matter if the room is $49.99 a night or $1200.00 no hotel is exempt. You should see me in action in a hospital room, wiping down bedrails & remote to call nurse. I am such a germaphobe I stand by my assertion if I had the $$ I would never leave the house. Hope the girls are doing well & ready for weekend, Lisa

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        Awesome about you getting a suite..but yeah, i totally agree. All those shows where they show the room under black light…and the ‘human stains’ EVERYWHERE…….revolting.

      • Powell says:

        Oh yes Lisa. We’re going to a family reunion in SC in July. We’ve looked online at the hotel & it looks great. But when I get to my room I’m stripping the bed & asking for clean sheets, etc. I’ll make up my own bed. I’ll be doing the Lysol sweep too. I don’t care
        what hotel I go to I’ll be doing it. Not only are there germs but there are bed bugs. I don’t want to sleep w/any or bring any back home.
        Singer Patti LaBelle said she travels w/a cleaning kit & I’m sure she’s stayed in some pretty fab hotels.

        • Lisa Renee says:

          Powell, its the “comforters” that are the biggest problem. Ask for extra blankets, they come cleaned & wrapped in plastic. A well placed tip to housekeeping always helps. I was scheduled to go to NY during the bed bug fiasco a few years ago. I was going to stay at the Ritz Carlton. I had a plan in place for when we got home. Get naked in the garage & wrap us in beach towels & head right to the shower. The luggage was going to stay in garage till I could sort it out & do laundry. I was super freaked by the bed bugs & realized when they surfaced at the Plaza no where was safe. Pay top dollar & still run the risk of bed bugs, good times lol! Thats why I hate traveling which defies how my passport reads, Lisa

          • princesspindy says:

            I’m with you babe!! My friend is going to be starting chemo and I told her I would share with her all my germaphobe secrets and tips!!

            • Powell says:

              I hope your friend will be alright PrincessP.

              • princesspindy says:

                Me too Powell, she needed her pathology report scanned and sent to some relatives and she told me I could read it and it’s stage IIIC, so of course I googled…. We are keeping the positive thoughts and prayers flowing. She has a huge support system and I told her I really had nothing better to do than to be there for her!

            • Lisa Renee says:

              Hi PP, hi doll! I know this is late but thanks for letting us know about lil PP turning 20! I remember holding my breath waiting to see if she was going to make Prom & ComicCon. It sounds like it was a 3 floored wonderful birthday. May you both have many more years of health & happiness. Anyone who is going to be around anyone having chemo needs a flu shot & become hand washing fools. When your friend gets an appetite who ever prepares the food should be deloused. I am a better safe than sorry kinda gal, Lisa

              • princesspindy says:

                ME TOO! Thanks for the good wishes and thoughts!!! My name really should be PrincessPurell, lol!!

                I understand what you were saying about Kim and the cravings, I rarely crave, although I probably think about it once a day, just a memory or random thought, but not crave…..but a month or so ago I was at a party and a woman came up to the little group I was talking to and flashed her hand and I knew she had a joint in it….. In that 30 seconds of me saying “no thank you” my mind went wild with thoughts of getting high….I just walked away but man, that was the first time in 26 years that any drug had been offered to me and was within reach……it was crazy. I watched them sneak outside and I kinda longed for it….but then I took the thoughts to the results and how awful it would be if there was something else in it and I end up riding in an ambulance to the ER, lol! How humiliating it would be, etc!! 🙂

                • Lisa Renee says:

                  PP, That is what blew me back about my reaction. I never ever craved or reminisced about “the good old days” once I was done. I had Ashley at 23 & clean as the board of health. I was at a party years later when I was offered coke. While I did hang with her for a bit once I found heroin it was love at first taste. My point is I made a great friend in rehab. After I moved out of the city my friend dropped dead seemingly out of know where. Coroner said she had some coke in her system but not enough to kill her. I always believed it was her body telling her no way in hell am I getting back on this train & her heart just stopped. When it was offered to me I was able to decline with no conflict or temptation because I believe my body might have had the same reaction & didn’t want her death to be in vain. We were the same age. So you being concerned that you would end up in the ER keeping you honest I totally get. Did you ever hear the 911 tape of a cop who called in to report he thought he & his wife were dying from pot laced brownies? Hysterical, especially when he asked the 911 operator if she knew the score of the hockey game. Thanks for sharing that, we both have alot of years behind us & then SLAM, its right there. Thats why I had to do a gut check to figure out why I thought Kim made it look good. I figured out at that point in my life I was more than ready to check out & dealt with that instead of giving in. Lisa

                  • princesspindy says:

                    WOW about your friend, yeah, no way can my body go thru that again. I was out of work for a year and on disability, it was horrible. I was 110lb and my hair in the front had turned white… I started at 13 and ended it at 26 and always try and take “that thought” to the ultimate end… thanks for sharing about your friend, another “red flag” to file away in the “don’t go there” file!!

          • Powell says:

            Thks for that tip Lisa. I remember the BB fiasco. NY hotels were using dog that sniff for BB too. At that time too a doc went on travel where I work and found he bought BB back. That whole floor(my floor) was shut down, no one worked there & was fumigated. What you were thinking about doing was recommended.

            • Lisa Renee says:

              Nice to hear that what my family called crazy was actually recommended. I feel validated, still nuts, but validated. Its the little things 🙂

            • catmom1 says:

              I have a friend whose college age son brought home two, count em, two bed bugs. Friend is a cleaning maven and found them immediately (within hours) just in sons room. She was cleaning, laundering, and vacuuming daily, and in some cases hourly. I think she was also using some sort of store bought treatment as well. This went on for nearly two weeks until she couldn’t take it any more. She finally had to go the professional exterminator route. Thanks to some good contacts, she was able to have her house treated for a reduced price of $1500. If it weren’t for friends and negotiating, I think she said it would have been an additional $1000. Treatments have been successful. What a cautionary tale this has been for me. After hearing her story, I now look VERY carefully at any upholstery I plan on sitting on BEFORE I sit down.

              • Lisa Renee says:

                Catmom1, that is one of the reasons I gave up going out to movie theater. The seats are way too community, lice if you’re lucky or bedbugs if you’re not. If someone coughed into the back of my head & I felt my hair move I went off right then & there. My husband decided a home movie theater system was cheaper to get than having his wife catch a case. I always here people tell my husband good luck with that one, he just tells them they should be happy he is getting me out of there. Lisa

              The Palms is like $60 this time of year. This is truly pathetic. You don’t stay at a fleabag hotel no matter who’s paying the bill. Icky. Not “sexy and classy” at all.

    • mrs peabody says:

      look at the caption on the bottom of her picture, she says she’s ready for her 23rd birthday weekend in Vegas. I think this is an old picture.

      • Rebecca says:

        She had frizzy hair and no wedding ring back then. This is a current photo. And it’s a sleazy hotel. Hey, if its all they can afford, then I’m glad that they can “pay their bills.”

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        I thought she was being factious. It doesn’t look like an old picture.

      • Exit4 says:

        She was joking. In follow up tweet she said basically “no I’m not, but a girl can dream”. I think she’s 34 or 35.

        • Orson says:

          My mom said she was 49 years old until my older brother’s 50th birthday. Then she was 59 years old. This was fun for me when I’d say my mom was 59 and people would question it. I’d just say “Look, my mother says she’s 59 years old. Are you calling my mother a liar?” and give them a REALLY pissed off look.

    • melthehound says:

      I don’t know when but that picture doesn’t look like it was taken with a modern camera. It looks like a half faded print from film to me. Perhaps from a ‘disposable’ 35mm or similar that the film was damaged by the heat in LV. As for the decor, tacky yes, possible even now for LV yes. It reminds me of the Imperial Palace or perhaps the Desert Inn from back in the day. The color balance is too yellow to have been taken even with the worse of phone cameras which is likely, what all of them use (phone cameras). Look at the picture of Joe above the one in question… Still a shitty picture but much better than the one of MeGo. Of course, as usual, I could be completely wrong.

      • Exit4 says:

        It was probably done on Instagram. You can make “old style”pictures with it.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Her tweet right after she tweeted that pic was something like…ok ok not 23 but a girl can make believe.
          She was trying to be cute and say she was only 23 cause that would explain why she is staying in that gross looking hotel!!!!

          • Exit4 says:

            Great minds….I posted that above! She’s 23 in her mind, I think! And a pop star. Not a fan, nut she is an attractive woman. Even before her obvious work! And her body is pretty fierce. Gotta give her credit there!

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              Exit-I read from the bottom up sometimes so I post things that people already know…gotta stop and read first!!

  21. Powell says:

    I’m watching part 2 of the Hawaii trip. A & P went on the hike to the top of the cliff. They are so awkward. I know we picked that up that season but it’s funny how much more you pick up on it since they’ve divorced.

    • nyc mama says:

      I agree. We are now watching these episodes through a different lens. Kim’s Ken is certainly creepy.

      Kim’s attitude and lack of remorse for keeping everyone waiting is annoying to say the least.

    • Lisa Renee says:

      Hi Powell, how are you doll! Watching BH in hindsight is a hoot. Its no secret that I had a substance abuse problem (sounds nicer than heroin junkie) as a kid & went to Re-hab. When this first aired they way Kim was acting at lunch with Ken after they missed the boat made my nose start to drip. I played the lunch in slo-mo for my hubs because Kim just made it look soooooooo good. It was the first time in 29 years I “craved” “missed” my drug of choice. It was my way of trying to explain to my husband how much money & time I spent to get to act like Kim. I was really scared for her. Lisa

      • Nancy says:

        Watching Kim makes me feel like I went to a meeting! Never again.

        • Lisa Renee says:

          Hi Nancy, I so get that. For some strange reason I had the opposite reaction. I had to give myself a huge gut check as I watched in slo-mo thinking how wasted she was & like I said Kim made it look “good”. Then I snapped out of it, but I shocked the hell out of myself. My hubs can’t imagine me as a junkie, being a mom as one or being a wife. It helped him understand why I don’t care about b-days & getting older. Technically I should have never seen 21. But like you said, never again. Still keeping good thoughts for your BFF & hope she is doing well, Lisa

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Lisa I didn’t know that about you-you are one open and honest woman!!
        Hope you are well…how’s your girl doing?

        • Lisa Renee says:

          Jill, I started posting about it in reply to a poster who lost her child to heroin. She had a ton of guilt & I was trying to tell her it was not her fault. I am sure you know exactly where I was, Daytop in Millbrook & then Swan Lake. I also went through the re-entry program in Far Rockaway that was destroyed by Sandy. I read the “bridal shower” was a smashing success & the wedding is probably going to be so sweet. I’m not a huge believer in the whole renewal thing but after 25 years a proper wedding is in order :). DD is doing great, I broke down & flew her home for 3 days. It was an amazing weekend & she caught the best weather here. For a woman of color I was shocked at how pale she was from living in MI & too dam skinny for my taste. I sent her back sun kissed with a full belly. I miss her so much but she is walking on air & living her dream. Hope all is well with you & your family, Lisa

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            The party is more for their Anni than their vows-my oldest brother will be “officiating” so that means we will mostly be laughing and crying at the same time!!
            I’m so glad you got to spend time with your daughter. I’m sure she needed to be with you as much as you needed her. I bet she loved hearing that you thought she was too skinny-in my mind that means someone is gonna feed me something good!!!

      • TexasTart says:

        Hey Lisa, if I haven’t said it before; I have a hell of a lot of respect for you surviving your youth and turning that around. What you said about experiencing that craving as you watched that scene in Hawaii speaks volumes!!! First of all that it hit you that way, which must have been somewhat halting after almost 3 decades, and secondly it helps prove my continuing to claim that alcohol was never the only substance abuse issue Kim has had.

        • nyc mama says:

          I second what Texas Tart said. It isn’t easy and it is an arduous journey. I have an old friend who had a similiar experience and I always look at her and what she did with such admiration. I add you to that as well.

          • Lisa Renee says:

            Thanks nyc mama, I grew up in Kips Bay! My path made it very easy to leave NY & relocate to BFE to raise my kid. I miss the theater, mom worked for shubert as a designer. That & having food delivered to your door are the two things I miss the most. Lisa

        • Lisa Renee says:

          TT, great to get a chance to chat with you. All the credit belongs to my mom. Before anyone knew about tough love & hitting bottom my mom knew her child was a junkie & got educated. She threw me out of the house & had to live through the horror of waiting for me to hit bottom or die. When I called & said I had enough mom knew where I had to go & for no less than 18 months. ITA that booze is the least of Kim’s problems. It is why I find her handlers so wreckless. Elective surgery, really? My reaction to Kim in HI phucked me up for sure. That person was so far removed from who I am it is like it happened to someone else. Thanks for the koodooze but it was my mom that gave me the tools I needed to have a life if I wanted. Lisa

          • nyc mama says:

            No all the credit goes to you. You mom gets much credit also and her strength and kmowledge are not to be minimized but you had to do the work even though she went through pain as well. You both deserve kudos for your journey and glad you had her guidence to help you. You are a testament to her and you both should be proud..

            • TexasTart says:

              Lisa is on the humble side and I like that about her, but I wanted to counter what she said and I just did not have the right words….nyc nailed it. Lisa, you are a testament to your Mothers’ strength. I’m glad you followed through.

              On another note, I completely relate to not liking to travel and the germaphobe thing. I’m not too over the top.with germs, but I have pretty much limited such situations. And I don’t care if people think that is too guarded or neurotic, I very rarely get sick. Now.would be a good.time to knock.on.wood. 😉 Good to hear from you, glad gou enjoyed DD visit. Take care.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            Grateful to have Lisa Renee and PPindy around. Thankful that you had the strength to get sober, because you have so much to offer – to your families who love you – and to us – the LYNNFAMily members!!

      • AZGirl says:

        WOW! Lisa you are one strong woman. Congratulations on being clean. Bravo needs to get Kim some help. She obviously is not fully recovered.

        • Contessa says:

          Lisa you have my admiraton, as well as your Mom. You explained this all pretty well, and put into words how I feel about Kim. That entire nose job and 30 days in a facility isn’t cutting it for me. After watching her in Paris, I feel she relapsed and is using all her doctors for prescription highs. If she went through the 30 day thing, you would think there would be much more to do with Doctors and her family as well. But that’s me and I have a feeling she is till this needy, over cossetted child star who will not admit to any wrong doing. I cannot believe that on the next episode she is still carrying on about Brandi calling her a meth addict…well Brandi got it half right, with the addict part, but not with the drug of choice and crying/yelling at vile kile that she is not pointing out how horrible that was for her??? This stuff is ancient and she is till hanging onto this, after we saw her crawling on the floor looking for pills with Ken???

          • Lisa Renee says:

            Thanks Contessa, funny you should mention Paris. I recently asked the hubs if he remembered Kim & the lunch from HI I made him watch in slo-mo. He said yes & before I pressed play I said this is Kim post rehab & sober in Paris on balcony. He said no way that woman is not on something. Then I explained how she justified her actions by saying she mixed up her meds. He asked what we all ask at some point, do the people who are being filmed think we are stupid? I said welcome to the world according to Bravo. Kim is so poor at deflection it is pathetic, the you called me a meth head card is suppose to keep anyone from speaking about her behavior. A 5 year old is more adept at deflection, Lisa

          • Catseye says:

            Well, I don’t know, but I honestly think that Brandi hit it on the nose with her Meth accusation. I think that’s how Kim has remained so skinny for her age–48, for one you KNOW that if she was ONLY drinking, she’d have a roll of fat around her mid-section by now. I also think that’s why she complained about being awake for 2 days, was cleaning the bathroom mirror at Dana’s–a lot of her wacky behavior/appearance/speech seemed to point to me that she was using something which speeded her up. WAY UP. Plus, if it was such an off-the-wall accusation, she definitely would’ve just laughed it off–instead of crying and harping about it, at every opportunity. She may have started out with Coke back in the day, but now that her money is all gone, I really think she started using Meth as a substitute.

            • Lisa Renee says:

              Catseye, I have no experience with meth & don’t know anyone who battled it. I heard its nasty & hardcore. I know after prolonged use they look tore up from the floor up, kim still has her teeth. The reasons you list ring true, I can see what you mean about amped up. I know I had to learn tweakanese in order to understand KKB though. Sonja did say it smelled like cat urine on the boat & learned from another blog meth gives off that smell. So it very well could be. I lean more towards opiates. Lid lag, thick tounge. Unless I’m with her in the bathroom with tin foil & a lighter or helping her scramble for spilled pills (an addicts nightmare) I will never be sure. Whatever it is, its not sober. I think she pulls the meth card because she knows her sister will defend that & keep spotlight off of where it belongs, Kim ain’t “cured”. Lisa

              • Catseye says:

                I completely agree it’s something–not JUST alcohol.

              • nyc mama says:

                Again, I agree. I think they chose alcohol because it is acceptable in social circles.I also don’t think it is meth, although I don”t know for sure but that could work for them since they can refute it and not lie but I believe it is another substance(s). I thought their over the top reaction to the accusation said a lot. I don’t know any alcoholics who spend as much time in the bathroom as Kim seemed to in the seasons past but I do know people who had substance abuse problems that did be it coke or alternative drugs. She also seems incrediby loopy and not so much drunk. I would love to be a fly on the wall and know what Jennifer Gimenez says. I would bet she has a handle on what it really is.

                • Lisa Renee says:

                  I dig Jennifer, that woman has war stories that take the cake. She is another who is lucky to be alive. I loath Dr. Drew so its nice to see her on BH. The few comments she has made about Kim or Kyle were succinct and spot on. She gets her point in knowing it has to be quick.

  22. Nancy says:

    “We don’t care!” The best line of the season. lol

  23. Powell says:

    Lisa said “I actually quite like Brandi. I can have some fun with her. We do have one thing in common and that’s a bit of a naughty sense of humor.” They have proved that to be true. They have nothing but fun this season.

    • Nancy says:

      YUCK Bernie just walked in. It’s weird to see Adrienne and Lisa hugging each other.

      • pat says:

        I just turned on Bravo and BH housewives are in Hawaii. Guess what Mario thinks of the dolphins?? “They’re amaaaaazing!” oie.

  24. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    I just got home after a day of shopping and getting my mani/pedi for tomorrow night (my sisters 25 Anni-real wedding) and I put on Bravo….KIM IS A DISASTER!!!!!!

    • BB says:

      Kim is definitely a train wreck in the back of that limo. Hard to watch.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        OMG is was so painful… Such a mess!!

      • Powell says:

        Oh gosh was she ever. It’s really sad that the epi when Kim & Kyle were shopping & Kim kept telling Kyle I’m happy. But then finally she for once that season told the truth that she’s not been happy & cried every day. In Hawaii Kyle told Lisa Kim’s not happy. I know my sister & she’s not happy. We’ve seem these epis many many times & it’s funny how you see something else because you have more knowledge from the next season .& the media.

    • Buttercream says:

      Did you have the spa mani/pedi or the standard? Love the Spa treatment when the rub a dub dub the bottom of your feet! Aaaaahhh .. so relaxing! Have fun tomorrow!

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Thank you!!
        I had a regular pedi b/c I can’t stand having my feet touched-so ticklish-I barely make it through a regular pedi!!!

        • LaineyLainey says:

          My daughter thinks pedicures are torture. She is so ticklish!

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            I feel the same… I love getting my fingernails done but the toes I hate…however-it sine essay to have presentable piggies!!!

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              Ok this iPad drops letters too often!!! It is necessary to have presentable piggies!!!

          • Powell says:

            Lainey your daughter & I are sisters. I love pedicures but hate when my feet are scrubbed because I’m so ticklish. My mom & the nail techs just laugh. I hold onto the arms of the chair just gripping it hoping it won’t tickle. 🙂

            • LaineyLainey says:

              LOL!! It is kinda funny…but there is an element of anxiety that she experiences..I can’t remember the last time she got a pedicure.

  25. Powell says:

    I don’t know how I missed SUR is Sexy Unique Restaurant.

  26. Nancy says:

    “Taylor” is such a bad actress.

  27. windycitywondering2 says:

    I am so tired of the Richard sisters crying fests!

    • Nancy says:

      BIG TIME!!!!! They should be the spokes women for Kleenex.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Kyle want to be the spokeswoman for Pantene. I’m surprised they didn’t hire her…she even wrote about it in her book. If you were a hw and the mention of a product could get you an endorsement deal, what would you mention a lot? Me? I would mention…um…regular oreos. 😉

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Hahaha …SKIMPY LAINEY!!!

        • Lisa Renee says:

          Lainey, thanks to you & Jill I am on the hunt for mega stuffed oreos. Apreech! Lol, Lisa

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Ummmm Lisa-don’t thank Skimpy-she never had them…poor Lainey!!!

            • Lisa Renee says:

              Well then I’m blaming you 🙂 I tweet you pic of 100 calorie chocolate ding dong & you turned me on to mega stuffed oreos! Hahahaha If they ever make it this far south I will send some to Lainey

        • Powell says:

          I’m surprised too but I think the times she’s talked about it have done what they want & they didn’t have to pay her.

        • lillybee says:

          I remember when JZ wanted to do the same for Pantene.

    • nyc mama says:

      I agree. So tired of both of their dramatics.

      • iceNfire says:

        I caught some of yesterdays season 1 marathon and noticed that Kim was absent from the table for a long period of time the night of her 1st “date” with Martin and even back then everyone was asking the ongoing question “where’s Kim?” Now I’m beginning to think it wasn’t just alcohol or scripts, I think she was using street drugs that required frequent trips to the bathroom – imo

        • nyc mama says:

          Personally I don’t think Kim’s problem is solely alcohol and I never will. I think they decided that was acceptable to put out there so that is what they went with.

          • iceNfire says:

            And Kyle knew, I bet she looked thru Kim’s purse many times. At Kyle’s 1st white party Kyle was mad at Kim before she even got there. We saw
            Kim walk in looking and acting Very Happy but the look on Kyle’s face was pretty hateful.

    • Powell says:

      Sniff, sniff. Boo hoo. Sniff, sniff. Wahhhhh. Sniff, sniff. But why WCW? Sniff. 😉

  28. AZGirl says:

    Ok…I beginning to think I am losing my mind. Rebecca corrected me on the steak restaurant in Tucson. It is El Corral and it is River Road. I wrote El Charro Lodge which is in PV. I need to slow down when posting.
    You can all have a good laugh at “AZGirl’s Senioritis posting”.
    I did see that caption on Mel’s photo but I thought she was being “cute”. That has to be an old photo. Still, how old is she now? Do the math and that decor is still dated.

  29. Nancy says:

    Time to change the channel.

  30. shamrockblonde says:

    what I find even more disturbing than Rob Shuter publicly making false and ignorant statements about B’s personal life, or her real estate holdings, is the absurd amount of people who will automatically take it as gospel without any research at all – at least here on this blog we actually research this stuff before calling it the truth – or more often than not, calling it false – the people who accept it as truth just because it was posted or made public worry me very much –

    *hugs Lisa really hard*

  31. nyc mama says:

    Kim was painful to watch then and she still is now. I see little difference in her behavior over the seasons including this one. . As people have mentioned many times before she is emotionally and developmentally challenged.

  32. nyc mama says:

    Wow, hearing Adrienne once again reiterate how friends don’t sue friends is so ironic.

  33. AZGirl says:

    @TexasTart: If you are able to find any info on an LLC for that condo I bet that the trust is listed as a “Member” in the LLC

    • TexasTart says:

      Don’t worry, AZGirl, everyone will have a touch of senoritis now and then, but you are having a two-for today ;-). I’m the member if a LLC, but I believe it.was resident super sleuth T-Rex with the LLC research you speak of.

  34. Nancy says:

    “Taylor” is so FOS!!

    • nyc mama says:

      Funny tweet from Lisa:
      Lisa Vanderpump‏@LisaVanderpump
      Ok I love your responses on my blog…and no I don’t think the orangutan will be joining the cast…#rhofbh

    • BB says:

      Nancy I’m not sure I agree with you that Taylor is such a bad actress. She apparently had some people fooled. Not us, of course, but a lot of peope believed her crap, or at least pretented to.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Lisa believed her then and seems to still believe her

        • BB says:

          I actually believe some physical stuff went down (on both sides), but she told some whoppers in her book that are very hard to believe.

  35. windycitywondering2 says:

    Damn that Taylor – she is stealing Kim’s crazy thunder at the end of the year party! What is it going to take? A pretend pregnancy? Ken abuses her? She is sick and holding the bathroom hostage?

    • Powell says:

      I know. Ken was getting on my nerves knocking on the door. Kim. Can I come in Kim. Are you ok? Ok. What?
      I’m so glad that relationship was short lived.

      • nyc mama says:

        Even worse was him following her around and whining that he couldn;t find her for a minute. The man (term used loosely) is a creep,

  36. Nancy says:

    Adrienne is so nasty to him.

  37. Powell says:

    Oh no. pllllll. Adrienne. On no here it comes. plllll. On. -Paul releasing his air after his colonoscopy. 🙂 He was too funny.

  38. Nancy says:

    I can’t believe that Kyle doesn’t have a gate around her pool. SO unsafe.

    • Powell says:

      She didn’t have one for the old house & Portia was 2 & now not one at the new house. It’s not to just protect the kids & pets of the residence but also guests. A didn’t have one either I don’t think. But she’s sold that house, hopefully she has one at her knew house.

      • Lisa Renee says:

        Drowning children make no noise. That stuck with me! When I got my new house after living on the beach, which made my hyper vigilant about DD getting out so put in locks & heavy doors, the house I bought had a pool with a fence around it. Took it down after DD left for boarding school. I also hired lifeguards if I was hosting a party with both kids & parents because alcohol was being served. The party MeGo threw on the shore, I promise you no one would have noticed if Richie landed on that poor child & she never came up. Antonia had a look of fear on her face I will never forget. Lisa

  39. Powell says:

    I still can’t believe Mauricio doesn’t have a Tux.

  40. BB says:

    I’m one happy camper! I just got a new laptop and it’s great!

  41. Nancy says:

    How many dogs do they have?

  42. iceNfire says:

    Did anyone notice at the 2nd white party Lisa tells Kyle that she feels bad b/c Taylor made such an effort to go to Pandora’s bachelorette party and Kyle’s screams “That is so unimportant right now!” and “I’ve been closer with her longer than you!” Even back then Kyle dismissed Lisa’s feelings and made it all about her

  43. Nancy says:

    Oh noooooo white chairs.

  44. Powell says:

    S2 Reunion.

  45. BB says:

    Adrienne is calling Crackpot her child. Does she even have him anymore?

  46. Powell says:

    Pandora DIDN’T want her bachelorette at the Palms.

  47. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    Lisa is so good at this…she had to know saying Maloof Hoof would end up hurting Adrienne and then to add its a little fat shoe only made it “purposely” worse. Something went down with these 2 chicks that was shown.

    • justanothermary says:

      I really like Lisa but she does and says some things that really make me think. She must be insecure or she wouldn’t NEED Kyle to “stick up for her” and she’s known A for a long time so she certainly knows how to push her buttons.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I feel like she “tests” her friendships.

      • nyc mama says:

        I think it has less to do with need than want or expect. Most of us expect our close friends to have our back just like we would have theirs. Kyle has demonstrated that she is capable with Faye but she hasn’t shown the same with Lisa.

        Lisa has shown she doesn’t need it. She moved on and lowered her expectations based on what she has experienced. Kyle still seems to expect the same relationship from Lisa even though she hasn’t shown herself to be a good friend.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          I don’t think Lisa has moved on at all-she brings it up every minute.

          • BB says:

            Only because she has to keep explaining to Kyle why their friendship is not the same because Kyle keeps asking.

            • nyc mama says:

              Exactly.

            • windycitywondering2 says:

              Kyle has been replaced! She finally got that and now maybe she will either act like a loyal friend or STFU. Lisa explained that their friendship changed, she never said their friendship was over.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              Inthe preview for next week she says let’s see if Kyle backs me up-she is testing her. It’s time for both of them to move on.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                For the viewers’ sake,…yes, move on ladies. You don’t even really like each other anymore. I feel that Kyle never liked Lisa. Lisa liked and trusted Kyle. But no more. yes, let’s move on. So that we, on this board, can move on. (yeah, right….) LOLOLOL!!!

              • nyc mama says:

                I think that was said because it was Kyle that kept bringing it up all season and Lisa kept telling her the problem but Kyle ignored it then, at Lisa’s own home, Faye is the one that came in and started trouble, first with Brandi and Yolanda and then going after Lisa. She was right. If Kyle was her friend she would tell Faye this is not appropriate today since it is Lisa’s home and Lisa’s renewal. I know I would say something like that. It was inapporpriate.

              • Rebecca says:

                Jill, Jill, Jill,

                She said that in a talking head months after the incident happened. Kyle’s friend is upsetting Lisa’s party. If she had an ounce of compassion for Lisa she would pull Faye aside and tell her to take it up later.

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                  She has been talking about nothing but Adrienne and Kyle all season long-every chance she gets she brings it up….she did it while talking with Brandi she did in Vegas she did it in Paris with Kim…on and on and on. She doesn’t hold a grudge yet she lets nothing go. You don’t have to agree with me-I know I heard her say it lots of times.

                  • LaineyLainey says:

                    Don’t they all talk about each other? Wouldn’t it be weird if they talked about their off camera neighbors/co workers or topics we don’t know about or people we don’t know? To answer my own question: Yes it would be weird. They talk about the people on the show and things that happen on the show. They all do. Don’t they?????

                    • nyc mama says:

                      I agree. It would be strange to hear her speak about people we know nothing about and I am sure she is responding to questions posed to her by the producers of the show so they can tie it in. . I doubt she just sits there and speaks off the cuff. That would be ridiculous.

                    • realhousewifeva says:

                      LMAO!! I was thinking the same thing…she only has a handful of people to choose from to keep talking about all season. haha

                    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                      Do you really think I was saying that Lisa needs to talk about people we don’t know? Seriously?? Come on now-I’m not dumb. That is not what I was saying at all.

                    • Laineylainey says:

                      I know u r not dumb. I just don’t get why you seem bothered that Lisa talks about the fellow cast members w whom she’s had a storyline. It seems logical to me, not sinister. What else or who else could she talk about and still be interesting?

                    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                      What I said was in response to a comment that Lisa has moved on. I would never expect them not to talk about each other but when they say the same thing over and over-to me-that is not moving on. Why would anyone think I expect Lisa to talk about strangers? When did I imply such a thing? Kind of makes me look like a dummy implying that is what I said. Someone mentioned that Kyle keeps bringing it up and I was saying that Lisa did-that’s all.

                    • Laineylainey says:

                      Ok. Kyle too can talk about the cast members w whom she has had conflict. In my opinion. That’s fair. I get it. Who else/what else could they/ should they talk about? I think we are in violent agreement? Jk…not violent. But I never said you implied anything, I said you seemed bothered by Lisa’s topics. So technically, I inferred that. It was merely me attempting to understand your comment. If you weren’t bothered by Lisa, my apologies. I might have inferred incorrectly.

            • Powell says:

              Right on.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            She probably loses sleep over it.

        • seagirl45 says:

          ITA nycmama. That would be the expectation. That a friend would show a modicum of support in tough times. Kyle proved herself to be a Fair Weather Friend. And Lisa has finally adjusted her expectations accordingly.

      • princesspindy says:

    Im with Camille. I don’t think the show should have aired and I said that back in the day.

      We all had so many conversations about that back in the day. If I remember correctly, the general consensus was that it should not be aired.

  53. Mauricio is turning into a Simon clone…why does he get involved in the women’s dramatics? He is as big of a s*** stirrer as any of them! And he used to be so dreamy…

    • BB says:

      Hopefully he’s learned his lesson based on the backlash he’s gotten. Hopefully.

      • Kyle is already such a drama queen and it doesn’t help that Mauricio spins her up. The Hawaii trip is so hard to watch…I’m sure they were super irritated with Kim, but it was their choice to let it ruin their own time and make it so uncomfortable for everyone else.

        • princesspindy says:

          I am just now watching the dinner and it was completely inappropriate for Kyle to bring it up in front of everyone, she was itching for a fight, I mean drama, I mean camera time!

          • LaineyLainey says:

            par for the course. It wouldn’t be Kyle if she weren’t throwing her sister under the bus, publicly. It’s her thang. Just like potty mouth blurter is Brandi’s thang.

    • justanothermary says:

      There was always something about him that seemed smarmy to me. I still can’t put my finger on it, but there is something there that put up red flags all over the place for me.

  54. BB says:

    The song “Purple Haze” keeps going through my mind when looking at Andy and the Reunion set lighting and carpet.

  55. Nancy says:

    Bye bye Adrienne.

  56. designernailsdiana says:

    Thank you all for the well wishes a d prayers. Lizzi got they surgery and is home resting now. Isaak was so happy to see her he cried when she took a shower cause he couldn’t see Mommy.
    I shared with her all your posts. Cheered her up knowing people shed never met cared so much about her.
    MrDesigner took today off to help get her home. We will celebrate our anniversary again tomorrow lol he sent flowers to my workplace today and I’m not there so we just picked them up.
    I need sleep!!
    Blessings,
    Diana
    PS I’ve been reading the blogs and thanks to our bloggers because I’ve missed shows this week.

    • Nancy says:

      Great news. 🙂

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Oh great news! Hope she recovers quickly-and with you caring for her I’m sure she will!!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      yay!! Momma’s happy when her babies are happy!!

    • Powell says:

      Aw that’s great Diana. I’m sure you finally breathed a sigh of relief. That was sweet for your husband to send you flowers. You’ve gone a few rounds like Diva & need some rest. Take care.

    • Lisa Renee says:

      Diana, thats great news she is home. Your exhaustion is setting in because as moms, no matter what their age, we function on adrenaline until we feel our kid is out of immediate danger, then we can exhale. Hope you get some rest & enjoy your anniversary, Lisa

      • Contessa says:

        Diana, Lisa got it right, your exhaustion is setting in because of the emotional impact of your child hurting and having surgery. It is scary,no matter what it is. I’m so happy she is home, your grandbaby is happy and you and hubby have a wonderful anniversary!!!!!!! XO

    • BB says:

      Glad to hear everyone is doing well. Get some rest!

    • Rebecca says:

      So happy everyone is home and your daughter is recovering. I hope you have a wonderful celebratory weekend.

    • TexasTart says:

      Good to know all will be okay for your DD. Hope you’re getting some rest and congrata on another anniversary!

  57. BB says:

    Adrienne just broke out into a hooker in church sweat and is thinking to herself “Oh shit” It’s the beginning of her demise.

    • Nancy says:

      Exactly.

    • Powell says:

      Hahaha. She did have that look BB. 🙂

    • nyc mama says:

      I always wondered who she was looking at off stage when she was hurling her accusations at Lisa. She looked so uncomfortable.

      Agree, she knew she was screwed.

      I also thought it was funny that Radar Online came out and said that Lisa never sold stories to them but they never said the same about Adrienne after her accusations.

  58. Powell says:

    I’m sorry!?! You’re an Effing liar Adrienne. You sell stories. Not Lisa.
    I wonder if they will say that at this yrs reunion?

    • realhousewifeva says:

      Definitely. Brandi claims someone at Radar told her of at least Bernie selling stories to them.

  59. iceNfire says:

    I’m behind – When Taylor and Russel were asked to leave the 2nd white party Taylor’s biggest concern was that she didn’t get to go to Hawaii. I think she more than any of the other HW’s needed/wanted the RHOBH gig and now in hindsight I’m wondering if Taylor wasn’t the one in control of that marriage. Camille questioned the lack of physical evidence on Taylor’s body, maybe the evidence was on Russel’s

    • Nancy says:

      I’ve said that all along.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      that makes my skin crawl

    • pat says:

      I’ve always had a hunch that Taylor was the abuser in that relationship. She goes from zero to furious in a flash. And there was nary a mark, not a scratch or a bruise on her, (according to Camille), even though she was often scantily clad. Of course shortly after Camille pointed that out, Taylor shows up on camera with that supposed bruise under her eye.

      • nyc mama says:

        She also had no qualms putting herself in the middle of Brandi and the Richards at Dana’s party. I think she was as abusive to Russell as he was to her. (allegedly)

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Didnt she have a black eye? Lisa pointed it out at the SUR launch party.

  60. princesspindy says:

    LOL!!! Kim’s Ken, “We don’t care” So funny!!

    • princesspindy says:

      OMG, Ken is SO FUNNY, “I was just kinda tired of hearing the voice.” Right there with ya Ken!!!

    • Best! Ever! I’m not his biggest fan, but they were so rude to him. I can’t believe they even showed up to anything after this first disaster meal with Kyle…

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Kyle was mean to him when she met him. As if she thought he was not attractive enough to be in her presence. I’m totally making that up…Kyle never said that in front of the camera. But I thought she looked grossed out by him.

  61. Nancy says:

    Andy is so impressed about money. Yuck!

  62. iceNfire says:

    WoW – over 300 comments on this blog on a Friday! I think it’s funny that other blogs get 9 comments on a ‘good’ day 😛

  63. Nancy says:

    Andy doesn’t understand child support.

  64. Nancy says:

    Brandi cracks me up.

  65. Nancy says:

    They are so jealous of her.

  66. Kansas Girl says:

    Fans of Duck Dynasty will get a kick out of this video with cameos by the DD gang. The music is nice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=hvKyBcCDOB4#!

    • catmom1 says:

      Thanks for posting Kansas. I’m a huge fan of both Darius and DD. Great video. I’m betting Si is even more impossible to live with now.

    • BB says:

      Thanks, I enjoyed it! As Si would say “Hey, Mamma Rock Me!”

  67. Powell says:

    Brandi understood that Kyle didn’t hide her crutch. Brandi said twice but you knew Kim hid it. Why couldn’t Kyle just say yes your right?

  68. princesspindy says:

    Cedric came to Lisa’s party with good intentions and a microphone pack….

  69. iceNfire says:

    LoL #NobodyCares

    • Powell says:

      ice do you follow all the ladies? I only follow a few.

    • nyc mama says:

      Interesting timing. Yesterday she didn’t want to put one up but today she does. Marisa hasn’t learned anything yet but let’s see what she has to say.

      When I watched the epi again, when Faye arrived and kissed Marisa she whispered to Faye “I think we’re in trouble” and Faye responded “Yes, I’m sure we are”.

      She knew what she was doing but unfortunately she picked Faye to align herself to. It was a mistake.

      • windycitywondering2 says:

        That was in interesting exchange – we have to watch it again. There is no way I will ever believe that Kyle/Faye/Adrienne had an agenda to take down Brandi and Lisa. Sadly, Marisa and her text was a feeble attempt to get in with who she thought were the cool girls. Marisa may have learned her lesson but I hope the rest crash and burn and then melt into a greasy orange puddle.

        • windycitywondering2 says:

          Opps – they had an agenda – a very transparent agenda – and they blew it!

  70. princesspindy says:

    Now I am getting confused….The SUR party, Cedric shows up…..is this before the Reunion was filmed?? Because Kyle went up to him and kissed him?? Was the party before they knew what he had done to Ken and Lisa…. And Kim is WAYYYSTTTEEDDD!!! I know someone here will know the timeline…..

    • iceNfire says:

      A picture a day keep the haters away?

    • realhousewifeva says:

      You mean Season 1 reunion? No this had to be way after Season 1 reunion was filmed. They always film the season, air it, film reunion before season ends and then begin filming the next season a few months later.

  71. Powell says:

    Russell recorded her, made her take a lie detector, beat up her friend, threw her in the pool & she stayed w/him because she needed him for her & Kennedy to survive. I would work at McDONALD’S & get the hell out of their.

  72. Powell says:

    I’m still waiting for the wedding at the castle.

    • Nancy says:

      So’s she! lol

    • nyc mama says:

      So is she. He left her for a younger woman and now she is trying to sell her reality show Rich and Ditched.

      Brandi called it both about Dana and Kim.

      • BB says:

        What was his name again? Anyone?

        • nyc mama says:

          John Flynn. It ended nasty.

          • princesspindy says:

            I have him as a gravatar but my current one is so much cuter!!! LOL, remember when he wanted the internet to take down his picture, damn internet!!!

          • BB says:

            nyc Were you around when we were all making fun of John Flynn because he said he didnt want to be a public figure? After that, ALL the posters were JOHN FLYNNING all over the place! It was a riot!

            • nyc mama says:

              I remember reading although I wasn’t posting because I was working at the time.

              He really trashed her (with good reason I am sure).

            • nyc mama says:

              I have been reading for years. I started reading Lynn’s blog when she was hubpages and remember several of the kerfuffles that erupted through the years (otay, the attempted takedown of Teresa, etc.). Was very saddened to hear of Lynn’s passing but I wasn’t posting at the time. I always enjoyed the insights — even those I didn’t agree with.

      • Powell says:

        For real nyc? She’s trying to get her own show? HA!

        • nyc mama says:

          Yep. She is a legend in her own mind. She has supposedly been filming and trying to shop it around. She is with a sleezy guy who is part of it and has been living in england but heading back to the states soon to shop it. Read her twitter. She is incredibly obnoxious (not that you didn’t know that already) still bashing brandi. Talk about jealous.

          • Powell says:

            Oh that’s too funny.

            • nyc mama says:

              Dana Wilkey‏@Danawilkey19 Mar
              @Newzysteph I miss you to Steph still in #london doing #richandditched and #thinshot going home to # beverlyhills april 1 can I see u?

  73. BB says:

    Awwww! Poor Dana!

  74. Powell says:

    Dana Pam was so fun to have around Andy that you had her on one epi & she wasdunk.

  75. Nancy says:

    What character Kyle?

  76. Brigid Ashwood says:

    Um am I just slow here or did anyone else notice that Faye’s pic and Bio is on the Cast & Info page for BH? It’s as if she’s a full time housewife. Dear god is she Adrienne’s replacement for next season? I really hope not.

    • melthehound says:

      I read somewhere yesterday or the day before that she was there, under contract, as a Friend (like Brandi and the extra in the background were last season).. We know what happened to Brandi, we know what happen to the Extra (Pam/Dana). Let’s hope Faye follows the path of the latter.

    • I don’t think that Bravo would do that, would they?? The vast majority of the fans do not like her. On second thought, they are bringing Danielle back to RHNJ this season…

    • BB says:

      Camille and Marisa’s are on there too and they are considered Friends of the Housewives. I don’t think it means anything. Faye, Marisa and Camille are NOT in the official RHOBH photo.

    • iceNfire says:

      I clicked on her bio and I regret doing so. Her boobs are sloppy, how does anyone have sloppy boobs????

    • JumpTheShark says:

      I just watched RHBH “First Look” If Taylor and Faye’s lips get any looser, they won’t be able to pay the bills…

    • realhousewifeva says:

      I posted about it the other day after Kyle tweeted (or did an interview) where she said that most people didn’t know that Faye was an actual castmember like Dana and Brandi were last season and like Marisa was this season. I was surprised to see it as well, but Dana had a full bio and pic last season, too. I think Faye was in the running to become an actual housewife.

      • realhousewifeva says:

        I also want to point out that the friends of housewives do get to blog, but Faye only did that one blog that was eventually yanked, while Marisa continued to blog all season. Bravo realized they had Marlo No. 2 on their hands with Faye.

  77. pat says:

    Watching Pandora’s wedding. I have to admit I’m a bit jelly at how calm and rested Pandy appears on her wedding day. My wedding was gorgeous, and I wouldn’t trade mine for hers, but I didn’t have a wedding coordinator & I planned everything myself in 5 months, while working full time and packing to move. By wedding day, I was exhausted.

  78. BB says:

    I was watching Real World but turned it to O Brother Where Art Thou.

  79. Rebecca says:

    *sigh*

    Puppy hurt his foot and came running in crying. Unfortunately this was at 6:00 pm and his perfect vet is gone for the day. I don’t trust anyone else with him. If he doesn’t put some weight on it, it’s an early morning in for him. I checked all the bones, the nails, and in between his toes. He’s just a little guy. I hope he wakes up back to his old terriorist self.

    • nyc mama says:

      😦 Oh so sorry Rebecca, I hope it isn’t anything serious and he isn’t in too much pain. Good thoughts going your way and the puppies.

    • AZGirl says:

      R: do you think he got stung by something? I am thinking bee sting.

    • Poor Puppy! I hope that he feels better very soon!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Oh…sorry to hear that. Hopefully, he’ll bounce back quickly!

    • Boobah says:

      Oh no! Poor baby! I hate when animals are in pain. Hang in there.

    • Rebecca says:

      Now the old dog is so stressed she puked all over the living room.

      Friend came over and puppy stood on boo-boo foot to greet him.

      I need a Valium.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Your older dog is stressed b/c the puppy has a hurt paw?? Sympathy pains!! poor things and poor you… You need a glass of wine or something!!

      • TexasTart says:

        Sorry, but I have to laugh at it all, Rebecca. I know we’re not in the same geographic location, but my dogs get stung by scorpions ever so often. They will not put weight on the paw for a.while but they are usually back to normal in 8 hrs or so without any medical intervention. Hopefully it will be that simple.

        • Rebecca says:

          Baby puppy Dino (fyi-he’s 2 years old) is not favoring his paw this morning. The crying and drama for 20 minutes last night was pretty scary. I’m so used to big labs never showing pain that I didn’t fathom that he could be ultra sensitive to little pains. He’s not spoiled at all – no, I can’t keep a straight face as I type this.

          Big old mama lab Cierra is being kept calm all day to bring her blood pressure down too. I got Dino as a 3-day old baby to foster. His adorable mommy and brothers and sister were adopted first but my lab wanted a puppy so he stayed and she’s raised him as her own.

          Thank you all for your concerns.Here’s hoping for a quiet boring so day I can finish my re renewal classes.

          • TexasTart says:

            Hi Rebecca, glad to hear that all seems okay! My dogs aren’t spoiled either 🙄 but I have been in situations similar where you don’t know if it’s serious or not and the other dog tends to get unraveled by the stress of the other dog (and people too). Also, I’m glad to know that I wasn’t laughing at something that turned out to be serious! Bothered me a bit after I posted that. Whew. Hope your day is productive!

  80. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    As you all know I read and comment on this blog everyday. I love this place for HW news and the blogs are always great. NMD and all the writers keep us all informed and in the know. The comments on this blog are equally great. I have never read blog comments anywhere else like I read hear. But today the comment section of this blog blew me away.
    Lisa Renee and PrincessPindy-you two are amazing, strong, honest chicks!! I’m so thankful that both of you gave yourselves the chance to get clean and sober because this place wouldn’t be the same without you guys. I feel very lucky to be here with you. Thank you for sharing something so personal. Your daughters are lucky to have such an incredible woman as their mother.

    • nyc mama says:

      Jill, I co-sign on all you said.

      You never know where you will find inspiration and I have certainly found some it here.

      Thank you all.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I concur…in fact, I posted this upthread…Jill we seem to be sharing a brain today…
      “Grateful to have Lisa Renee and PPindy around. Thankful that you had the strength to get sober, because you have so much to offer – to your families who love you – and to us – the LYNNFAMily members!!”

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I like to share…not my mega stuffed but my brain!!!
        They really are awesome women right?? And FYI- you ain’t so bad yourself Skimpy!!!

    • TexasTart says:

      I have a great deal of respect for them too.

      Have a wonderful weekend!

  81. BB says:

    The Stubenville Rape Trial story is on 20/20 right now.

    • SCGirl says:

      BB, Watched 20/20 on east coast a few hours ago, and the whole time I was watching it, I kept thinking what a different day and time it was in the early 90’s when I was in high school…no cell phones and no internet yet. It sure does make me feel old seeing how far technology has come since then and all the dangers it has introduced. Makes me scared for my daughter one day when she’s in highschool….

      • Laineylainey says:

        I watched some of it too. They said that without all of those phones and Internet usage, this crime might have gone unpunished. The kids themselves basically built the evidence that was used to try the rapists.

        • SCGirl says:

          Hey Lainey To The 2nd! Stupid Stupid kids all the way around…all of the lives that were ruined from that one night, and none of those kids will EVER be the same. What ashame for such a tragic event to happen to people that still have their whole life ahead of them….

    • trudie says:

      My son called from college tonight. I talked to him about the Stubenville Rape Trial. He said nothing like that has ever happened at any party he has attended. I asked if he would step in if he saw something like that happening. “Mom! Of course I would. Who do you think you raised?” He then told me to quit watching the news and reading books because every time I read/watch something disturbing I call the kids and grill them!

  82. BB says:

    Did Iowagirl ever check in to let us know if she had a granddaughter or grandson?

  83. realhousewifeva says:

    Ha! Sneak Peak for next week Lisa says “I see what’s going on here. She is Adrienne and Kyle’s friend. Checkmate, Bitch”

    Love it

    • LaineyLainey says:

      seriously…?

      • realhousewifeva says:

        Yes. Faye repeated Kyle’s line to Lisa about how she is playing a game of chess and every move is calculated, complete with hand movements. Lisa was annoyed because it’s exactly what Kyle told her at the reunion.

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      Most definately the game is on! Lisa knows it. Yolanda knows it. Brandi knows it.

  84. realhousewifeva says:

    I just drank the most amaaaaazing (said in Mauricio’s voice) cup of Nescafe and now I am wide awake and nobody’s here!

  85. BB says:

    Good morning everyone! Isn’t Puxatawny (sp) Phil being sued because he predicted an early Spring? Lol. I am so over this cold weather. Even my DH who normally isn’t bothered by it, is tired of this Winter.

  86. LA Debra says:

    I’m going to stop watching the news 😦 is that being a Pollyanna? I wish they had a good news show, I’d watch that.

    • BB says:

      I know. There are plenty of good things happening, but we mostly hear about the bad stuff. It can be depressing sometimes.

      • realhousewifeva says:

        Yah I just read an article about a 17 year old and 14 year old that shot a 16 month old baby in the face and killed him while his mom was walking with him in his stroller, because she wouldn’t give them any money 😦 😦 😦

        • BB says:

          The sad part is she didn’t have any money to give them and they still shot her (in the ear and leg) and shot that poor baby.

        • LA Debra says:

          That is the story that did it for me. And the very next was a local story on a family getting gas, and hit by bullets that hit their child in a car seat in the car. The child didn’t make it. How sad 😦 it just makes me cry.

    • Kansas Girl says:

      I hardly ever watch. I check the online news now and then so I know the basics. And I pay attention to local news online so I can skip things. I guess I’m a Pollyanna too. But much happier! (For 3 years I lived with someone who had CNN on tv 24 hours a day. I was dreaming about shootings and war. It took a heavy toll on my happy. No more of that.)

  87. LA Debra says:

    When that little ground hog predicted early spring I thought ” not this year buddy”

    • Kansas Girl says:

      We’re waiting for the snow to get here. Around noon. And then about 12 hours of snow. 9 inches is the latest prediction.

      Sigh.

  88. AZGirl says:

    Good morning everyone! Hopefully today I will make more sense than yesterday. Serious brain farts yesterday posting.
    Got home from the office just in time to watch the reruns of the reunion. Taylor was just creepy talking about Russell. Her implications that he may have been murdered and then she smiled was really bizarre. I think Andy’s interview with Kim was very scripted. She obviously still very medicated.

    • Orson says:

      Kim? Medicated? I am shocked, shocked I tell you!

    • BB says:

      And when she kept saying “alcohol, I’m an alcoholic” I thought “it’s not just alcohol, girl.”

      • windycitywondering2 says:

        But saying “I am an alcoholic” is more socially acceptable than “I drink, abuse prescription drugs, and know I need therapy for all the damage I have done to myself and my family.”

        • Orson says:

          She’s simply an addict. I understand for those who are addicts, it really doesn’t matter what they’re addicted to; they can switch addictions. Maybe “I’m a substance abuser” is more PC?

  89. TexasTart says:

    Good Morning everyone! Hope you have a good day! 😀
