NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak Friends Again / Rachel Zoe Project / It’s a Brad, Brad World / Survivor

NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak Friends Again and Other Gossip by NoMoreDrama

Real Housewives of Atlanta sure do know how to keep us guessing.  Now that Sheree Whitfield is off the show, and Kandi Burruss is suing Kim Zolicak, it looks like Kim is ready to be friends with NeNe Leakes again.  I can’t say I’m surprised.  NeNe and Kim have a love-hate relationship.  NeNe is also known to change her mind (although she claims to be a good judge of character).  This is the woman who DIVORCED and now is re-marrying Gregg Leakes.

The reconciliation occurred during the reunion.  The skeptic in me thinks NeNe supported Kim just to get at Kandi Burruss.  I somehow think Kandi is done with both of them, and won’t be changing her mind.  NeNe ran to InTouch to tell them that she was good with Kim, and that she was inviting Kim to her wedding and she thought Kim would attend. Then came these tweets from the two famewhores.

Am I the only one that doesn’t care?

Meanwhile, Adrienne Maloof is now claiming she didn’t go to the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills reunion because she wanted to leave the show with some dignity.  I think we can all agree that her dignity went out the window when we all learned that she left brown stains on any piece of furniture she came in touch with.  Oh – and there was that messy public divorce.  Very dignified.

The funny thing is it turned out that Adrienne wasn’t lying about the lawsuit.  Or the letter.  Brandi confirmed on the reunion what Camille Grammer and Adrienne Maloof had been saying all along was true.  The only letter that was sent was to Brandi’s friend, who used to work for the Maloofs.  If this friend signed a non-disclosure and was spilling family secrets, she deserved that C&D letter.  Brandi put her friend in an awful position by spilling the secrets on camera.  For those of you that haven’t been immersed in this, Adrienne has confirmed that the big secret was that Adrienne used a surrogate for her sons.  I suspect there was more to it than that – her whole life was a lie and her cast mates reaction to the “secret” was way too over the top for it to be the surrogacy – but for me the missing piece in the puzzle is why Bravo was forced to edit the “secret” out of the storyline.  Why would that secret be any more sacred than other secrets that housewives spill?  And why didn’t anyone spill that Paul and Adrienne’s marriage was a sham?  They all knew it and discussed it after the couple filed for separation.

Back to the lack of letter or lawsuit.  No wonder Adrienne and Camille were frustrated.  Too bad for Adrienne that her vile behavior behind the scenes to both Lisa and Brandi, and then to husband Paul, made her completely and utterly unsympathetic.  As for Brandi, I will take everything she says/tweets with a grain of salt from now on.  She could have cleared this up months ago, but she let people demonize Camille Grammer for telling the truth. Yes, I know she was selling a book and it was all about attention, but not cool.

The Rachel Zoe Project by Amy

At Rachel’s house the family has just gotten back from Paris. Rachel has Skyler say a few words in French. They are heading to the polo match. Rodger needs Eli, Joey the makeup artist’s brother’s help to choose his outfit. Then Rachel and Joey arrive and critique his outfit further. Rachel says that she likes to give him crap for being so picky but then admits that it is probably her fault that he is so picky. She then picks out Skyler’s clothes as well as Joey’s clothes. Rachel feels that this is one of those old Hollywood type of events and she loves it. Rachel wants to relax for the day after how busy she was in Paris.

Meeting for the pre-Fall collection is going on at the studio. She meets with, Michael, her designer from New York, and they plan her collection. Rachel says she has an allergy to pink and wants to know why everyone loves pink. She “literally” does not understand why people are obsessed with pink. She chooses her pink colors from Bordeaux wine. She meets with the Editor in Chief of InStyle, Ariel; he wants her to do a story for them. He pitches the 60s and Rachel seizes on this; she can’t get enough of it. She wants to present mod in a new and fresh way. They have their eye on Jamie King to model.

Rachel talks to Rodger about wanting to be in New York to collaborate with Michael. She then critiques what he is wearing, saying he needs to set an example at the office. She wants to look cute while she works. They talk about her color pallet. She feels her signature is black and white, Rodger wants her to include more colors so that more people will buy them. They joke about Rachel spending more time on Skyler than Rodger. They have issues using their toaster/convection oven (I’ve used that model and it’s actually a bit more confusing than a normal toaster oven). Michael arrives at their house and Rachel decides that she needs to go shopping. She brings him with her to Resurrection. She likes that he has a good background in designing. She tries on several amazing coats and talks about how she likes using suede and leather together.

Rachel and Rodger go to the Sunset Marquis and have dinner with Tommy Hilfiger. They reminisce about her first time styling with him. She asks for his advice about making her collections ready to wear also. They joke about Rachel having another baby, but a girl, and she says she loves the name Luna.

Eileen the styling associate talks to Rachel about what to pick up for the shoot for InStyle. After Rachel hangs up she and Joey remark that she seems different now, she doesn’t talk as much about work. Eileen arrives at Marc Jacobs to find some pieces. She picks some colorful pieces and some fun sunglasses then goes looking for jewelry. At David Webb she finds a phenomenal peace sign necklace. The protos are in from New York so Rachel and Mandana look at them. They talk about fabrics, colors, other things that are important to designers. Rachel says that any fabrics in her collection have to feel good and that anything that feels scratchy are rejected. At Rachel’s office she gets a present from Reed Krakoff.

At the shoot all of the pieces are set out for Rachel to choose from. Rachel has a hard time picking because she loves a lot of them. Rachel and Jamie are good friends. They both admire the pieces that Rachel has picked. Rachel feels that Jamie was the best choice for this as she is a fashion chameleon. Rachel seems like she is having a ball. Rodger arrives with Skyler and they are matching in horizontal stripes. The shoot ends successfully. If anyone is interested in seeing the final project, the magazine is out now and also on Rachel’s Facebook page.

Michael and Rachel meet at her office to go over more designs before he has to head back to New York. They make some sexual jokes and Rachel talks about how she learns every time she designs. Rachel and Rodger talk about being in New York. Rachel loves L.A. but believes she needs to be in New York. Rodger does not want to have a second home in New York and feels that if they have to move between 2 places they will be “homeless”. Rachel wants to get an apartment in New York to provide some stability, making less trips but longer periods of time. She feels that will be better for Skyler. She says that what they’re doing right now is not working and Rodger vehemently disagrees.

It’s a Brad Brad World by Johanna

We start off this week in Brad’s office with Brad, Lindsay, Hanna and Thomas discussing an upcoming job for J Brand that has been pushed up and Brad and Lindsay’s trip to Canada.  According to Brad, J Brand is an edgy, cool brand. He will be providing his stylist notes for their holiday campaign.  Brad informs Hanna and Thomas that while he and Lindsay are in Canada they will be pulling all of the accessories to go with the J Brand clothes. They all joke and then go about their respective tasks. I love the vibe in their office, they all seem to be friends and are comfortable with each other.

Lindsay and Brad arrive in Canada. They are in Canada to help Brad’s sister pick out her wedding dress. They discuss how Brad will not be seeing his Dad because his father lives three and a half hours from Port Perry, where Brad is from. As they drive through his home town, he points out a few family businesses. It was very cute, he was obviously very proud.

They meet with Brad’s mom and sister at a coffee shop and discuss her wedding. Brad’s sister is talking about how she is thinking about having black bridesmaid’s dresses. He shoots that idea right away, and they joke about their difference in taste.

Cut to Hanna and Thomas pulling for the J Brand job. They kid about Christmas and sparkle. H and T are looking for sleek, modern jewelry and have a successful pull!

Back in Canada, Brad, his mom and Lindsay arrive at a bridal shop and discuss dresses with the dress consultant. His sister arrives and she begins to try on dresses. She comes out in option one and everyone is blown away at how beautiful she looks. They all seem to like option one and Brad takes some pictures of her in dress. Dress option two is an Oscar de La Renta, Brad says it’s a much younger look and everyone agrees. Option three is a gorgeous Marchesa, his sister says it’s exactly what she had in mind. As she is trying on the dresses she asks Brad to be her best man. It was such a touching scene, try clearly have so much love for each other. She tells him “it couldn’t have been anyone else”. After an emotional Brad jokes, “Now I really have to think about what I am going to wear!”.

A few days later in LA, Hanna and a new intern, Aneesha, are unloading  on the set of the J Brand shoot. Brad arrives and asks Hanna if she has broken down her responsibilities at the shoot. In her talking head, she talks about how much she is learning. She seems to be a good fit. The creative director comes out and they discuss the job. Brad says his job here is to combine his vision of how to wear the clothes and J Brand’s vision of how the  clothes. There are seven different looks some night and some day. Hanna struggles with differentiating the night and day looks. Brad is getting annoyed and expresses his feeling to Hanna. She defends herself saying people make mistakes and in her talking head says she is not going to run off set and cry every time she makes a mistake. I like Hanna, she seems like a tough girl and I love that. Everything is smoothed over and Brad says the photos came out beautiful. H and B joke with Aneesha about the day, and Brad says he can see her being a secret freak out person and Hanna agrees.

The filler scene is of Brad and his assistants looking at a new pair of gorgeous Louboutins and Brad asks if they come in mens. Those shoes where BEAUTIFUL.

Brad arrives home and Gary and their dog, Penelope, greet him. Gary has a show that was picked up in England. Gary flies to London the day after they move into their new house. He says he will be moving there for a several month stretch and they discuss that they will basically be doing long distance for some time. Gary jokes about needing to find a boyfriend in England because they will be apart for long time. They talk about their modern relationship and Gary says it’s like “a gay romantic comedy, or maybe just gay” I love them together 🙂

Until Next week xoxo

sur1Welcome back Castaways. Note the list above. The tribes have been mixed up and I’ve also moved the cast off castaways to a separate list. Once we start building the jury, those names will be gone from the list because nobody will care about them anymore, if they even do now, and that will become the jury list. So, let’s get to this. Last week, after the split left Bikal decidedly at a disadvantage, Gota dominated in the immunity challenge and Bikal sent Matt the Beard packing for Ohio where he came from. Back at the Bikal camp, the faves on the tribe are apologizing to the fans for the way it went down but thems the breaks. I’m not going to go into any of what bothered me about this scene and made me want to throw up in my mouth, it doesn’t matter. Let’s just get to the next day.

sur2 sur1 sur6Day 17 at Bikal, there is tree mail. “The strong must bear the weak. If you hope to compete, The taste of victory today, will be oh so sweet.”. Cochran says they’ve got plenty of that latter category so they should be good with the challenge. Corrine is complaining that there is too much weak. Pinky is pounding his chest again about how strong he is and can carry the challenge. At some point, Pinky challenges Cochran to an arm wrestling contest after he shows him how he always wins. He claims he’s a power lifter, he doesn’t work out for bulky tone, but for brute strength. To his credit I guess, even when Cochran put all his weight on Pinky’s arm, he still managed to hold his arm from being pinned.

side note- I remember in 7th grade, there was a kid who weighed all of about 80 pounds dripping wet and no body could beat him at arm wrestling. He had the ability to lock his elbow somehow and the only to beat him would be to break his arm. So, Pinky, while impressive, it doesn’t prove strength to me. It proves he can lock his wrist to prevent it from being pressed to the table, floor, mat, whatever. End side note.

Point being, Pinky blows a lot of hot air that I’m not so sure they need on that island. He’s feeling confident now that he’s managed to beat Cochran in an arm wrestling contest. He has the will of a lion he says, and the strength of a gorilla. He may be old, but he still has game. I’ll bet after 17 days on that island, they are All a little gamey. Pinky has obviously convinced himself this challenge has something to do with arm wrestling. Has that EVER been done on Survivor? It could be interesting I guess. Just to pick a match up, I would like to see Sherri and Cochran go at it. My money would be on Sherri. We know this isn’t going to happen though.

Reward Challenge

sur3This is basically a game of team tag. The object is for each team to travel around this large oval until one catches the other and tags them out. They are tied in a line together and each carrying 20 pounds of sand. If a player gets too tired, they can opt out and hand their bag to someone else. The teams start on opposite sides of the oval so there is an even amount of space between them. They are unmatched so one from Gota has to sit out, and it will be Brenda. The prize is an afternoon at a Survivor type coffee bar complete with cookies, brownies, rolls, and of course, coffee or some other caffeinated drink.

The teams get set and pick their line up. Pinky, wants to be in front because when he has to take over for everyone, he doesn’t want to be tripping over all the weaklings. He has Michael behind him. The rest follow behind. On the Gota tribe they put their strongest or most fit (this may be debatable) in front, Erik. I really don’t think it matters to tell the truth which of the 4 power players are in front. They begin trotting around the oval.. Did I mention this is being done in the water, at about knee level? If not, I have now. Both teams start out with a slow run but soon realize, bad idea. Especially Mr bring it on home, Pinky. He is among the first to peter out but insists on keeping in the pack, and dictating the pace. Dawn drops out and hands her bag to Corrine who is now carrying 40 pounds. Before it’s all said and done, she is carrying 60 pounds when she takes Cochran’s 20. I’ll say I’m a bit impressed with that. As the gap is closing behind Bikal as Gota is catching up, people keep telling Pinky to move faster or run (or get out of the way). Sorry kiddies, He cannot do it. After about 4 or 5 laps around this 200 yard or so course, most of Bikal is done, Gota easily catches up and tags them for the win. Yay… Pinky lost again. I don’t care about the others, I just don’t want to see him win anything. His super secret agent strategery did them in and failed them. I guess in his defense, all of his bravado is about his Upper body strength and he Is 54 years old. To listen to him though, he eats lightning and craps thunder (sorry). I doubt I could have done better, even at 49. However, remember what he said he didn’t want to have to do when he put himself up front. Trip over the weaker players. That is exactly what they were doing with him by the time this was over. I will also note that it was Pinky that Erik tagged when he fell to the back of the Bikal pack. Probst sends Gota off to their reward, Dawn says “they’re going to get sick, it’s a diarrhea-fest”. Really Dawn? Kind of gross to say and pathetic of you to wish that on them. I’m willing to bet that if the tables were turned, she would have enjoyed that reward as much as they are going to but, whatever. TH Dawn says that Pinky has put himself in this position of leader and seems extremely arrogant. He sees all of his strengths and none of his weaknesses. Good observation Dawn, how long did that one take you to come up with?

sur4At the reward… This is the first time any of these fans have seen this type of reward (though they did win the first one on the game). TH Andrea is looking forward to bonding with the fans, before they have to vote them out. They have their fun and yuck it up. Malcolm is planning on making his move soon to own this tribe.

Over at the Bikal camp, Pinky is acknowledging that they lost to a better younger more fit team. TH Corrine blames the whole thing on Pinky because she could have carried many more bags if needed. He insisted on trying to stay in front of the pack and setting the walking pace. She (in TH) calls him a Tubby Lunchbox, she’s yet to see an Ab on him, he’s saggy and looks like 10 pounds of potatoes in a 5 pound bag. He’s an amoeba. I think she has that backwards, more like 5 pounds of mashed potatoes in a 10 pound bag. He mistakenly at some point thinks that was the immunity challenge and they are going to tribal that night. Corrine is chatting it up with Cochran, who, we all know has Pinky’s number as well as Corrine’s. She says she doesn’t want to keep playing the game with him (then make a move to vote his ass out of there).. Cochran is on board to get rid of him when the time comes. I feel the same way when Pinky says he wants to get rid of Corrine. Shit or get off the pot already, I’m sick of both of them.

TH Cochran says that this divide between the two of them is fracturing the favorites and something is going to have to come to a head. He says right now, his choice is to bounce one of the two fans on the tribe. Michael, he says, has connected himself to Corrine and will be difficult to get rid of. Julia is kind of a non entity, almost vanilla-like but that’s a disservice to the flavor vanilla which is a flavor a lot of people like. People line up for vanilla flavored products and kids clamor for vanilla flavored ice cream (I prefer peanut butter flavored ice cream) but no one is clamoring for anything Julia flavored. That is, except for Pinky who has grown quite close to her. Cut to a scene with those two where he’s telling her he wants her to be a double agent after the merge like he was when playing with Boston Rob (raise your hand if you are sick both of Pinky, and hearing about Boston Rob—– That’s what I thought). He tells her not to repeat anything he’s said to her so he knows he can trust her. What does she do? She runs and tells Dawn. What does Dawn do? Runs and tells Pinky. There’s a bit more to it than that but that’s the basic. Now Pinky’s sights are on Julia’s back. She’s gone as far as he’s concerned. I’m going to leave that there for now.

At the Gota tribe… Reynold is looking for a new post merge alliance. He’s talking with Malcolm who of course says Sure, whatever you want. Malcolm knows that after the merge, people will be gunning for the strongest people and especially him because no one wants him there at the end. He’s too likable and plays the game too well. I think he’s an arrogant ass. Remember what Reynold said when he found that second idol? “Keep your big fat mouth shut”. He tells Malcolm that he’s firmly in Eddie’s corner and to gain Malcolm’s trust, spills that he has an idol. Malcolm can’t believe what he’s just heard, the only one who knows about his idol is Corrine and now Malcolm knows where both idols are. The pieces are falling in place for him to take over this tribe. Reynold is a freaking idiot. I’m amazed he’s made it this far. These two have just agreed to form a 4 person (minority) alliance in a larger group, if I read this right. Let’s get to the Immunity challenge..

Immunity Challenge

sur5 sur6 sur7 sur8The idea of this challenge is for 3 members of each team to row out to a dock where they must tie off the boat or ‘clip in’. Then jump in the water to retrieve a statue that is anchored at the bottom of the lagoon. They must then hoist said statue on to the boat and row back where they (3 different members) will place the statue on a platform. Once they’ve done that, one member begins swinging a grappling hook to retrieve 5 keys. One of those keys will unlock the ramp where they placed the statue and then the team can pull the statue to the top, raising the immunity flag. Got all that? I hope the pictures help some.

Now, Mr upper body strength, Pinky, is not one of them rowing the boat. I would have thought this would be right up his alley especially since his thing is power lifting and all ( 🙄 ). Instead for Bikal, it is Dawn, Corrine, and Michael. For Gota it is Brenda, Erik, and Eddie. Though Gota gets off to a fast start, this becomes a bit of a dead heat to get the statue and bring it back to shore but Gota does win that race. The statues are carried to the designated platform and Reynold begins hooking the keys. Pinky is handling it for Bikal but he just can’t quite seem to get the hang of it. Gota gets all 5 keys first, Andrea unlocks the hoist, and they pull their statue to the top to win immunity. Sorry, not much of a play by play here, I’m bored with this episode. In the end, what matters is who is going to tribal council that night.

Okay, at Bikal, the offered plan is to split the vote between the two remaining fans. Corrine is not on board with that because she doesn’t want her gay’s name written down (I’m about to puke in my mouth here if you want to know the truth). Back in the woods away from the others, Pinky tells Cochran that he could have easily handled that grappling hook part of the challenge, IF he wanted to. In other words, he threw the challenge he says. He wants Julia gone and that’s the only way he could manage to ensure that happening. Cochran to Pinky’s face is all yeah, sure, you threw it, I get it.. In TH however, he’s calling Pinky a liar and says that the man just failed to get the job done. In other words, BS. So did he or didn’t he throw the challenge? Who knows. I still think it’s a moronic idea for any reason, even to get rid of Brandon days earlier. Pinky, again with the lions, the male in particular, when he takes over a new pride, he kills all the cubs so they don’t become a threat to him. (That isn’t the reason dumbass. The reason is to perpetuate his own bloodline over the one that lost the fight when  he took over. Any male lion cub will grow and can challenge the leader at some point. That is the reason that at a certain age, the males are chased away from the pride. Dumbass. A few hours with Animal Planet, and you would know that, Dumbass). Anyway, he likens the fans on the tribe to the lion cubs. They have got to go. Cochran, inside, is laughing his ass off at this guy. So, as usual, the pre tribal chatter doesn’t give a crystal clear picture of where everyone stands. All during the rest of this mindless chatter, Corrine is campaigning for Michael. She doesn’t want his name written in a split because she doesn’t want him to think they aren’t behind him. The more she tries to talk to Pinky about it, the more aggressive he becomes and the more annoyed they become with each other. You see, she promised him after the last tribal, she would do what she could to carry him as far as possible. She doesn’t give a hoot about winning, she just wants to play with the gay guy is my read on all of this.

Tribal Council

sur9They are ushered in once again by Probst and the Probsting begins. Michael, 19 days in, tribe in despair, is there tension within the tribe? He answers yes, it’s hard to avoid it when morale is low. Julia, IF it’s still fans vs favorites, you would have a reason to be tense. Why would anyone else have a reason to be tense? Her answer, The faves have the numbers, their alliances, they are looking past this tribal council so she totally sees how they would be tense as well (Huh?).. Probst turns his attention to Corrine. He says he’s connecting the dots and asks her if the tension between the four favorites coming down to Michael vs Julia? Absolutely she says.. Going into a possible merge, one doesn’t want to screw things up at this point (by eliminating her gay, Michael).. Pinky butts in with some tripe about ‘understanding the process’. He states that he and Corrine are working toward the same goal but have different ideas of how to get there. Probst asks Dawn if she’s witnessed them working through the disagreements. She says seen it, heard it, been in the middle of it. This alliance, she says, is organic, and if it’s working toward the same goal, then conflicts may be okay. We’ll see if she feels the same way when they are gunning for her. Probst moves on to the immunity challenge. He notes that Pinky once again put himself in the hero anchor role and failed to perform, especially since Bikal did well at the beginning. Why? Pinky doesn’t see it that way, he played where he played because that’s where people are use to seeing him. Huh? Whatever. Why should Michael stay instead of Julia? Pitch it to them Michael. He says he began working them the second he hit the beach. He says he’s been working to make sure they feel comfortable carrying him through the merge. The discussion turns to Corrine’s love affair with Michael. He asks, Cochran, in reference to her statement that she likes to work with the gays, could it be a hindrance to the rest of the tribe, this couple. He says yes.. She says it isn’t like that, a two person alliance doesn’t stand a chance but sure, but she thinks it’s neat that he’s gay (I personally don’t see what damn difference it makes what he is, gay or not, I just don’t care). I’ll note that last week, she complained about Julia’s annoying voice. This chick has me looking for my ice pic. Michael wanted to get to the vote as soon as they got back to the beach. In other words, he wants them to shit or get off the pot. This council business with all the Probsting, is tiring. That’s my read on that anyway.

sur10Time to vote. They vote, none were shown, the votes are read, and it’s a tie. 3 each for Michael and Julia. I’m going to take a wild stab here and say that Michael, Pinky, and Corrine voted for Julia, While Julia, Dawn, and Cochran voted for Michael. That’s just a hunch based on everything that’s been said. Re-Vote. You know the drill. The two of them cannot vote and all votes must be cast for either Michael or Julia. Three votes out of four for Julia, and she’s gone. She bids them farewell and exits, Probst says to Michael, the writing is on the wall, you’ve got your work cut out for you. He excuses them, the end.

Next week kids, they merge. Get ready to toss your lunch as they dine on some pretty digusting looking stuff. Watch it here (http://www.watchseriesus.com/2013/03/survivor-season-26-episode-7-tba.html) at your leisure. Close ad and watch as free user – Start Video (you may have to press play as well). Download nothing and just close any pop up windows. Some players may ask you to enter a word or phrase to proceed. I’ve tried that, successfully, with no ill-affects that I could see. That is, I’m suggesting it’s safe to do so. Ask if you need help with that. You can also watch at CBS.COM (with the commercials and it is torture because you can’t skip them).

See you next week. Til then,

Peace, MTH aka WTFIJeff

  3. Powell says:

    Good morning everyone. Happy Friday eve.

    NJBev I was sorry to read about your daughter’s experience w/her car being vandelized. Tell her to keep her insurance & registration in her wallet. We can’t leave any identifying info in our cars these days. I hope your husband is doing well.

    BB I hope you’re better today. Have a great day everyone.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Oh dear….I missed have missed that news. My regrets as well…I will never know what would inspire someone do trash someone elses property. SMH

    • Boobah says:

      I also felt bad when I read that….NJBev – I am also sorry to hear about what happened to your daughter’s car! And I really sorry about your hubby’s situation. That is so stressful! I hope your hubby gets back to 100% asap. (((((NJBev))))

  4. Rebecca says:

    While Brandi erroneously thinks she herself got a letter from the Adrienne’s lawyer, she was scared by her lawyer into believing she was being sued, so I can’t fault her there. Her friend’s lawyer shouldn’t have contacted her lawyer (thus starting the clock on the billing). There is a chance they are in the same firm, but still… he/she contacted counsel on behalf of her without her consent. Even Paul backed right down about the suit, so he must have thought there was some weight to it.

    Also – she did say at the last reunion that the Nassif’s marriage wasn’t real. She and her friend Geneva should stop the gossip. This should be a lesson well learned. Celebrities get attacked all the time with falsehoods and they deny (or not) and it normally goes away without escalation.

    I still think she’s fun to watch on screen, and it will be interesting to see how next season transpires without The Human Stain, who was indeed feeding Radar Online with the shitty chef.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I think you are giving Brandi a lot of credit.
      I find it hard to beleive that from the get go, her attorney wouldn’t have explained all this to her. It also makes me even more suspicious of how/why she kept increasing the amounts of what was spent. Now I am certain, her playing the victim and making Adrienne out to be a hypocrite was all apart of the ‘plan’.

      • lizzle says:

        I believe Brandi was scared, because they were asking Brandi not to say anything about A & P ever again… so she must have been heavily involved in the letter. BUT… the reason I put my comment under yours RR is that even though I don’t believe it was a part of some larger plan… Brandi wasn’t being totally honest and in the words of Camille “That’s not cool!” I have lost some respect for Brandi’s brand of honesty and I hope that this isn’t the beginning of the end for my love for her… but it might be.

        • Catseye says:

          I FLOVED her in the beginning. Some of the crude, vulgar stuff she has said, and admitted too, has really changed my opinion. And I really sympathize with Camille.

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            I sympathize with Camille, I even tweeted her and said I was sorry to read that she was getting such rough time on twitter.

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      This makes me wonder if Bernie the chef doesn’t have a non disclosure agreement….and how will Adrienne explain this….she needs to go away and stay away and maybe pick up a dictionary and actually learn what the word dignity means.

      • L.A. Chica says:

        Good question about Bernie, wcw!

      • nyc mama says:

        Very good question.

        I had breakfast this morning with a friend, an attorney, and she told me that once Brandi was inserted in the letter it indeed became her “problem” and she was wise to seek counsel especially going against high powered attorneys like the Maloof’s would have. It was most definitly an intimidation tactic. So she was part of this even though the letter was not sent directly to her. I think the fact that Paul apologized to her is a red flag that Adrienne was lying.

        It doesn’t seem Adrienne is going away any time soon since she has been discussing her own reality show with the producer of The Biggest Loser focusing on her business(es) and her business “savy” (term used very loosely in her case). She just wants a venue to showcase and sell her garbage. I think the biggest loser fits her well,

        • L.A. Chica says:

          Thank you for running this by your lawyer friend, nyc mama. All of that is interesting and good to know.

        • pat says:

          Brandi had already a taste of the wrath of Adrienne, when she tried to get B booted from the show, after she didn’t agree to gang up on Lisa at the previous reunion, nor send out the false tweets Adrienne and Paul were demanding. B was absolutely correct to let her lawyer handle the letter she was named in.

          Adrienne said in an interview that she would only consider reality tv again if she was a producer on the show. Translation: Control the content. If anyone is dumb enough to sign on for something like that, it’s gonna be a real snooze-fest of a “reality” show.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Interesting, what your lawyer friend had to say. Sounds pretty cut and dried to me. but never mind about Brandi and Adrienne…What did y’all eat? It’s always about the food. nom, nom, nom,….

          • nyc mama says:

            Eggs bennie and a Bloody Mary which is not what I usually do on a Thursday morning but hey, a girl’s gotta do what a girls gotta do. 🙂

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              nyc-that’s my kind of breakfast!!!

              • nyc mama says:

                Jill, I could easily get used to it. But since I have started to look for a new job I won’t have the opportunity or luxury to do it for much longer. Time to go back to the real world — work.

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                  Well for today I shall live vicariously through you and your wonderful breakfast!!! Good luck on the job hunt!

                  • nyc mama says:

                    Thank you!!! All good things must come to an end. I love working but hate looking. 😦
                    You good wishes are much appreciated!!!!

                • princesspindy says:

                  eggs bene is my fav!!! yum, yum, yum!

                  • windycitywondering2 says:

                    I’m thinking how can I convince my husband and son that this would be wonderful as dinner tonight….

                    • princesspindy says:

                      Make it and put it in front of them on the table….Don’t ask, don’t tell….

                    • princesspindy says:

                      With a nice fruit salad…..

                    • nyc mama says:

                      What time is dinner? I am not above eating the same thing twice in one day. I’ll bring the rose, champage or the bloody mary’s – whichever you prefer.
                      Yep, just make it and serve it!! Breakfast for dinner!! My fav.

            • Laineylainey says:

              Mmmmmmm…sounds good to me!

        • Powell says:

          nyc I love it when we get answers to our legal questions from Lawyers. Detox was good at answering many questions. Thks for that. 🙂

    • $25,000 says:

      I wouldn’t be surprised if Adrienne continues to leak information to the press about her former costars. If she is not on the show, she won’t have to “answer” for it unless she gets sued.

      • windycitywondering2 says:

        Wouldn’t it be ironic if Bravo had to slap a STFU lawsuit on Adrienne? From the way Andy announced Adrienne would no longer be a housewife, I bet Bravo (and their monied parent companies) have no love left for the Hoof.

      • Powell says:

        $25,000 I’ll be surprised if she doesn’t. Her and her flying monkey w/the chef jacket. I’m sure he’s still working for her. No one else will have him. I bet Paul gave him to A in the divorce.

  5. jezzibel says:

    I don’t see this Kim/Nene friendship going the distance. Nene is going places right now and Kim is probably looking to take advantage in the hopes some of that “it” factor rubs off on her. But it will all end up in tears and ugly name calling on Twitter.

    • HuskerHuny says:

      Those who don’t learn from past history are doomed to repeat it . . . over and over and over . . . Seriously, I see this ‘friendship’ for what it is. Neither of you are fooling me!

    • lizzle says:

      You might be right, but I did get slightly emotional when Kim was moving out of her townhouse and they panned to Nene’s name written on the wall (or maybe it was the door frame molding). It showed me that they were good friends before the show. Even if the timing is suspect, I wish them the best in their rekindled friendship. I bet Kim’s kids miss Nene.

    • Powell says:

      jezzibel I never understood their breakup to begin w/cause Kim has always been the same Kim throughout their relationship. Their big blow up on Kandi/Kim’s tour was fine until NeNe saw Kim perform & saw the crowd liked Kim. They got back on the bus and NeNe went all kinds of cookoo on Kim saying Kim treats Sweetie like a slave, Kim always treated Sweetie the same way for yrs & now NeNe is upset about it? That fight didn’t make sense. Even though I know it was no reason to be jealous of Kim but I always think NeNe was mad at Kim & Kandi because Kim decided she didn’t want NeNe on the song anylonger. Kandi kept asking Kim about putting NeNe on the song. That was NeNe & Kandi’s blow up & Kandi had nothing to do w/it. NeNe ended up being made at Kim & Kandi over the song.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Powell I think you are right-NeNe wanted in on that dumb song and Kim cut her out! These 2 always have something brewing-when the are friends or enemies!!

        • Powell says:

          JNNTJ you are so right. I know NeNe is glad she had nothing to do w/the song since there have been nothing but problems w/the recording of that song.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Yes problems now but I think NeNe felt a little jealous and left out back then…now she is probably happy as hell that she wasn’t involved!!

  6. Lulu says:

    Good morning!!!! I’m feeling yeah I’m 8 months pregnant and my 2.5YO doesn’t understand why mommy can’t run after him 50 times in an hour blues 😦 He’s not showing any sign of slowing down. This momma could seriously use a break!

    I’m happy to hear Ms. Nene and Kim are friends again! They are wonderful together I was sad that they had a falling out. As for Miss Kandi so done with her and her frivolous lawsuit. It just shows her bad character as in will help for a price.

    Who I kinda feel bad for is Miss Kenya. I wouldn’t want to be put in a circumstance where I had to see my ex regularly. Not only that but to have that rubbed in my face for no other reason other then to be a B#$$h. Like Phaedra and her constant snide comments at her. I thought the woman was a Christian whatever happened to love they neighbor?

    Anyone watching the my uterus has left the building Duggars? I happened to catch their episode where they were in Kyoto. Had a good laugh for all the talks about being good Christians, Daughters dressing modestly. They dressed up as Geisha?!?!?!?!?!? Are they really that ignorant to not know that Geisha are in the business of pleasuring men????

    • Cathy Connor says:

      I did hear that they are talking about adopting some more children (Duggars) Cant believe it but thats the rumor ! What the heck does that man do for a living how do they afford all those kids ?? Just askin….

      • Hi Cathy…good to see you! I don’t watch this family but I also read about the adoption rumors. I sure hope they can take good care of all these children financially. 😦

      • Lulu says:

        All I know is that he is not on welfare! It is pretty interesting the man is an entrepenear. He owns several businesses towing, cleaning, not landscaping but a component of it. Along with several rental buildings both commerical and residential. I have to hand it to him on that he has built a self sustaining empire. But what I don’t like is how controlling he is with the girls and his wife. It’s odd that not one of the girls is not dating or married yet? It’s like he doesn’t want to lose another babysitter/servant etc. I’m surprise that not one of them has made a break yet.

        • Powell says:

          They also lease land to A cellular company that has a tower on one of his properties. They flip or buy homes as rental property & have a used car dealership. They have lots of kids but it looks like they can afford their family.

      • realhousewifeva says:

        Besides his businesses, I’ve read that the Duggars make between 30-40,000 an episode! Not sure if that is accurate, but if it is, then they are making bank! They are on their 11th season

        • lillybee says:

          The J’slaves should get some of that money especially the ones who are over 18 but I bet Boob has it all in some kind of family trust that only he controls.

    • LOL @ the Geisha LuLu! Hope you get some rest today!! 2 yr old and 8 months preggers….oh lady….makes me hurt just to read that! take care of yourself! And sending energy and Hugs!

    • Powell says:

      Hi Lulu. I’m glad to see you and that you’re doing well. 8mths! Time has flown by. Not to you though. 🙂 Your little guy is having a ball & just doesn’t know why mom isn’t keeping up. Little stinker. I hope Mr. Lulu is doing well too. I just got a kick out of his male point of view when you were blogging. I’m excited for your family. 😀
      I don’t feel sorry for Kenya in the sense that she purportrated a grad to be on HWs. She’s going to have to answer that on the reunion. I don’t like what Phaedra & Apollo did by inviting Walter to Kandi’s housewarming just to stand back & see fireworks. Very manipulative. Just like Phae said to Porsha she cant hide behind her Christianity.
      The Duggars I haven’t watched for a while. I did see/hear they were going overseas. The girls dressed up like Geisha’s. That’s too funny.

      • Powell says:

        purportrated a fraud*

      • Lulu says:

        Thank you! Mr Lulu is doing great! He’s doing very good at his new job overall it’s time to relax and breathe a sigh of relief! Later down the road I’m sure there will be some unfortunate souls on one of those Couple’s therapy. We’ll blog it.

        • Powell says:

          I’m glad Mr. Lulu is doing well on his job. I didn’t want to ask if you would blog CT again because you’ll be busy times 2. 🙂 I look forward to it. And tell Mr. we all say hey!!

        • Lulu I loved your blogs with MrLulu about Couples Therapy. Did you see Shorty got arrested for drugs? So sad. I guess neither money nor fame can keep you from your demons. I had my first two kids 22 months apart, oh what was I thinking? Happy to say at 29 and 31 they are both parents and friends. I love watching my 3 grandkids play together. Easter will be fun as we are going out to eat and I’m charging my camera for photos. My Lizzi is all recovered from Kidney stones and waiting to get results about what it was made of so she knows what to not eat or drink because she said she’d rather give birth again than pass another stone.
          I’ll say a prayer for rest for Momma and a long nap for your 2.5 yo.
          Blessings,
          Diana

          • Powell says:

            Diana I’m glad Lizzi is all recovered. I love the pic of her & Isaac. They adore one another. She looks just like you.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Lulu-you are in the home stretch!! 8 months already?? That went fast-for me-I’m sure not for you!! 2.5 year olds are not very understanding of the need to rest b/c they never need to!! Good thoughts to you and Mr Lulu!!!

    • Boobah says:

      WoW!!! I agree with what many said, 8 months seemed to go fast, for us only I’m sure! Hang in there!
      I also really enjoyed your he said/ she said Couples Therapy blog. That was such a great way to blog that. My thanks to Mr. Lulu as well!

  7. JustDee says:

    BOOBAH!!!!!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!

  8. Cathy Connor says:

    Happy Birthday BooBah !! Thanks for the recaps everyone doing a fantastic job !! Have a lovely holiday weekend friends , (((HUGS)))

    • Boobah says:

      Thank you so much Cathy!!!

      Did you catch Survivor last night? I agree with MelTH that it was a little boring. Pinky is still as annoying as ever!

      • Cathy Connor says:

        Oh yes I agree 100% Is Dawn out of her mind ?? Why didnt Corrinne get together with “her gay” and the boring race car driver girl and they could have voted Pinky off I think that would have been a great episode

        • Boobah says:

          I have no idea what Dawn is doing! Great strategy – had they gotten together that would have completely blindsided Pinky! He totally deserved to go!!! I had to laugh how you called the race car driver boring – yes she was. I never remembered her. Whenever I’d see her I be like, ‘who the hell is that?’. She was such a wallflower.

          • Cathy Connor says:

            Me too hardly knew her name she played too low key and have no idea what in the world Dawn is doing this season shes drivin me batty. She always looks on the verge of tears did you notice ? Do not know how she got thru audition that race car lady so forgettable….

          • trudie says:

            I am really disappointed in Dawn letting Pinky run the show. I had hoped she had more brains than that.

        • melthehound says:

          That’s a good question. I think Pinky will be a lot harder to get rid of after the merge. They will all want to take the most hated guy to the end. Corrine had at least 2 votes solid and probably could have had a third, in Julia. That would have killed the split vote and probably would have been enough to send Pinky easing on down the road.

          • designernailsdiana says:

            Pinky was annoying the first time around and now….oh lordy he’s believing his own lies. Crazy is as crazy does!
            I’d like to see Dawn, Cochran and Malcom gang up on the rest of the faves. Pair up with Reynolds”I-can’t-keep-a-secret-to-save-my-soul” and slowly wipe out the rest in blind side after blind side.

  9. Contessa says:

    Nene and Kim making up? Can we say a huge Bravo opportunity in the works for the future. This would support the Atlanta HW, Kim’s show and whatever Nene has on the burner. I am to the point that I don’t believe much of what happens on these shows anymore and feel a lot is planned.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      I agree, perfect timing with Kim’s show airing soon

    • Orson says:

      The way I see it, Kim’s show already has an expiration date on it. I don’t expect it to air 7 episodes. And the ratings for Nene’s show have been falling also. I also feel the sassy big black woman caricature (or is stereotype a better choice) is getting really old. So maybe they’re both hedging their bets to secure their RHOA gigs?

    • designernailsdiana says:

      The UNreality of a reality show. I agree.

  10. L.A. Chica says:

    Good morning to all and happy birthday to Boobah! 😀

    Thanks for all the great recaps, they really are fun to read and save me a lot of TV time.

    About Brandi and Adrienne and the letter, here’s my take in it: on the reunion show Brandi said the letter was sent to her friend Geneva, who used to work for Adrienne, and that – now this is important – Brandi was NAMED in the letter (implying as a potential co-defendent. She said that the wording in the letter demanded that she (Brandi) attend a meeting or else she’d be sued. That’s when her lawyer got involved and she started racking up legal bills. I would guess that this was true of both Geneva and Brandi.

    Now, I could have sworn that since the season’s episodes started airing, Camille had backed off on her assertion that there was no letter. It DID exist. And while it wasn’t sent to Brandi directly she was named in it. The only thing Adrienne said about this that was true is that there was no actual lawsuit, but she was definitely threatening Geneva and Brandi with one.
    —-

    NJBev, I’m so glad your daughter is OK! I think I know how her car’s electric window were downed. Some cars, like mine, have a feature that allows you to “roll” the windows up or down by inserting the car key into the door lock and turning, then holding in the turned position, while the car itself is off. Most likely the windows rolled down in the process of the vandals breaking the lock.

    I think the vandals were looking for a quick opportunity to grab and move on to the next car. Maybe they were looking for an expensive car stereo to steal, or an iPod in the glove box. Since they left the brand new MK bag it sounds to me like they were very specific in what they were looking for, if their intent was to steal.

    Anyway, I’m glad she is safe.

    • HuskerHuny says:

      About the lawsuit, I think Chica states it correctly.
      1) There was a letter, but it was sent to Brandi’s friend.
      2) Brandi was named in the letter.
      3) This letter asked that Brandi attend a meeting.
      4) If she did not attend said meeting, a lawsuit was implied.

      If I recall correctly, Brandi also said that she was asked to sign papers agreeing not to say anything else concerning Adrienne and her family, basically taking away her freedom of speech. I believe Brandi didn’t sign such papers.

      • windycitywondering2 says:

        The icing on this lawsuit cake was Brandi being asked to twitter false information by Adrienne and Paul. Do I think Adrienne would sue Brandi – yes. Do I think Paul knew the extent of what his wife was doing – no. Adrienne underestimated Brandi and came out looking like the stain on the couch.

      • mrs peabody says:

        I thought she said the friend’s atty then sent her atty a letter because of the letter the friend had received and because Brandi was also named in it. I thought the friend’s atty was letting her atty know about what was going on and this is why Brandi then had to have the atty involved, to protect her.

    • Oh Geez NJBev….I just read about this too. Sure hope your daughter is ok. As mothers we worry so much about this kind of thing happening. So sorry for you and to hear about your hubby as well. Sending warm thoughts and healing energy your way. Take care of yourself love!

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      The thing about the letter is that Brandi was insisting SHE got a letter and SHE was being sued. It doesn’t matter that a letter exists b/c that’s not what Brandi said. She let Adrienne have it at the tea party saying that she was suing her and that her lawyer sent her a letter. We now know that neither of these things are true. She was calling Adrienne a liar and all the while she was doing the lying. Being named in a letter could mean nothing-we don’t know what the letter said, it could have said that Geneva needs to shut up and stop telling Brandi personal things about Adrienne-we don’t know.

        Even though I hate arguments where the spirit of what is happening is dismissed, as I said above…. I think Brandi wasn’t being as honest as I expected her to be and I have lost some respect for her. As NMD stated, Camille was right and Brandi threw her under the bus. Camille might not have known the contents of the letter, but she knew Brandi wasn’t sent one by Adrienne… which turned out to be true. IMO… Camille shouldn’t have involved herself, but since she did… she was actually right.

      • mrs peabody says:

        whatever it was it was enough to scare her and have to get her atty involved

      • Rebecca says:

        She said she got a letter and she did. She said the letter threatened to sue her. She said her lawyer then contacted Adrienne’s lawyer – and I’m sure that did happen. She said she racked up a whopping Beverly Hils attorney bill, and she did.

        What she actually never said was that the letter was not addresses to her, until the reunion.

        Adrienne would have known Brandi was named in the letter itself. She also said out loud at Maurice’s party that there was a lawsuit coming. Anyone would have put two and two together and came up with the same conclusion. Adrienne COULD have spoken up and said she sent her ex-employee a C&D to stop running gossip,or a confidential truth in this instance, to Brandi.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Adrienne did speak up in her blog and said the letter was not sent to Brandi-she said it was sent to a former business associate.

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      Of course Brandi was named in the letter to Geneva. She was asked to come to a meeting to sign a non disclosure agreement not to talk about Adrienne’s family! Adrienne was trying to intimidate Brandi with her money and her legal team – the fact that the human stain didn’t go through with it was because all her secrets, which were not lies, would come out! Another case of Checkmate bitch! lol

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        How do we know Brandi was asked to come to a meeting? She admits she never got a letter. How do we know about a non disclosure? Because Brandi said it? She also said she was being sued….and that SHE got a letter from Adrienne’s lawyer-I don’t believe anything she says pertaining to this issue. I’m no fan of Adrienne but I don’t see how sending a letter to Geneva made Brandi feel intimidated-the lawyer never sent anything to Brandi herself.

        • nyc mama says:

          I replied above after asking my friend, an attorney. Once Brandi was included in the letter she was indeed part of it. She speculated that the letter was not sent directly to Brandi so Adrienne could claim she never sent a letter as she did – semantics but Brandi was indeed threatened by this letter if her name was included – legally. It was an intimidation tactic that went awry.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            But it still remains that we do not know what the letter said. We don’t know how or why Brandi was mentioned so we can’t really say she was threatened at all.

            • L.A. Chica says:

              I think we’re going to have to agree to disagree in this subject, Jill. 🙂

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                You know I’m always down for that Chica but this time I don’t understand the disagreement b/c it was in fact a lie. There was no letter sent to Brandi and there was no lawsuit. If this was not the big story of the season then it wouldn’t be a big whoop but Brandi said they are suing me so many times knowing that was a lie.

                • L.A. Chica says:

                  I (and others) don’t see it as being so black and white.

                  Was there a lawsuit filed? No. Was Brandi threatened with a lawsuit? Yes. I believe nyc mama’s lawyer friend is right when she said that Adrienne’s lawyer likely sent the letter that DID name Brandi as a potential defendent or co-defendent to Geneva rather than Brandi so that she could deny sending Brandi a letter and make her look like a liar. Remember, Adrienne started a smear campaign against Brandi long before B opened her mouth about the surrogacy. Adrienne is a snake.

                  And don’t forget, didn’t Camille back off her insistence that there was no letter? And Paul apologized to Brandi, saying he hadn’t known what his slithering ex-wife had done.

                  • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                    But Chica we don’t know if Brandi was named as potential anything.

                    • L.A. Chica says:

                      Given her history of ALWAYS owning up to what she says, I believe Brandi when she said she was named. I believe Camille backed off her defense of Adrienne because she found out that was true. I believe Paul apologized because he had no idea the sneaky tactics A used to legally intimidate B, i.e. The Letter.

                  • rabblerouser2010R says:

                    We don’t know that it named Brandi as a potential defendant, especially because Brandi never had an agreement with Adrienne. It seems more that Brandi would have been named a potential witness against her friend…because her friend was telling her confidential information about the Maloofs.
                    It would then make sense that both Brandi and Geneva would have been asked not to further disclose what was privileged communication otherwise because it violated Geneva’s contract.

            • nyc mama says:

              No we don’t but we do know that lawyers were involved initiated by Adrienne which takes this to a whole new level.

              Why Adrienne didn’t behave like a normal adult and just call Brandi is beyond me. But then again she did say “everyone gets their lawyers involved” (paraphrasing here) which is not the case for most normal people. We also know that Adrienne planted or had her gofer plant false stories about Brandi in the tabloids just like she did with Paul which is defamation of character. Brandi could have sued but didn’t.
              Adrienne didn’t behave the way normal people do and in the end Brandi was just protecting herself as anyone would/should do which cost her money..

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                nyc-all true statements but it doesn’t change the fact that Brandi was not sent a letter or was involved in a lawsuit. Adrienne is stupid for not handling things in a adult manner but if Adrienne employed this Geneva and Geneva signed a non disclosure but then went ahead and told Brandi personal info then naturally lawyers are involved. To what extent that involved Brandi is something we don’t know.

                • trudie says:

                  But we don’t know that Geneva signed a nondisclosure agreement just like we don’t know what the letter said. It is all supposition.

                • nyc mama says:

                  As Trudie said..IF. We don’t know and are speculating. What we do know is that it was handled poorly, admitted by all on the show including Kyle. We also know that once Brandi was inserted in that letter she needed legal counsel which cost her money all based on something that was already known and not based on lies as Adrienne tried unsuccessful to get everyone to believe.
                  Adrienne was a fool and remains one since she clearly hasn’t learned anything based on her continued behavior and how she handled her divorce with Paul and her continued use of Bernie as her voice.

                  • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                    But we don’t know how Brandi was inserted in the letter-all we have to go on is what she says.

                    • nyc mama says:

                      True, but she was inserted in a legal letter advising her that she was to meet with them or they would take it further and that couldn’t be ignored hence the need for legal counsel. If that wasn’t true someone would have spoken up and Paul wouldn’t have apologized to Brandi which he has admitted himself in tabloids and on twitter. He tweeted that he indeed did apologize to Brandi.

                  • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                    What did Paul apologize for? From what I remember it was for yelling at Brandi-that has nothing to do with the letter.
                    We don’t know that she was called to a meeting b/c we only have her word. I would love to actually see this letter but I don’t think that is going to happen.
                    Adrienne was foolish-but not for the reasons Brandi wanted us to believe.

                    • nyc mama says:

                      For his behavior and not knowing the full story. This was after the stories were planted about him that he was an abuser.

                    • rabblerouser2010R says:

                      I don’t remember Paul apologizing for anything that had to do with a ‘letter’ or a threat of a lawsuit against anyone. From what I recall and seems likely based on what happened to him afterwards is that he apologized for not knowing that Bernie was Adrienne’s lackey and that he was selling stories about the HW to the press (namely Radar on Line)

                    • nyc mama says:

                      I remember it clearly. My secretary came into my office while I was writing my resignation letter to show me the tweets and it as a wtf moment for me. We will have to agree to disagree.

                • MM in OC says:

                  Are we really going to get into a symantics converation here? If you are paying a lawyer to stave off a potential lawsuit, are we going to hold a relatively uneducated model accountable for the language she’s using? Do you think Brandi was intentionally lying, or she just misspoke? I think the later. Also, everyone pretty much knew about the surrogacy on the show. If you start telling everyone your secret, it’s not a secret anymore. So shut it magoof! Good Ridance!

                  • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                    I think she intentionally lied-it was the whole premise of the season.

                  • nyc mama says:

                    Had Bravo/NBC not had to get their lawyers involved and re-edit the entire season I may have agreed with you. But she threatened a lawsuit that was filmed claiming Brandi lied and yet Brandi didn’t as we know since she admitted she used a surrogate. She also was filmed telling everyone about her “cesariean section” yet she never had one. If there wasn’t a letter or a threat then no lawyer(s) would have been needed.
                    The only one who has proven to have lied so far is Adrienne. The only one who has proven to plant false stories (lies) is Adrienne. The only one who has shown she tries to manipulate people or scenarios is Adrienne. The only one has shown she has no loyalties is Adrienne. The only one who has shown she is less than honest is Adrienne. She has no credibility left.

                    • nyc mama says:

                      oops s/b cesarean.

                    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                      I don’t understand how Adrienne lied about this-she said that there was no letter sent to Brandi and no lawsuit against Brandi -this is true. No matter how disgusting Adrienne is or how stupid she is it doesn’t change the fact that Brandi lied. It wouldn’t even matter if it was said once or even twice but Brandi said it so many times. She even tried to act like she had the letter with her at the white party. My problem with it is I think Brandi chose to say lawsuit when she knew it wasn’t true-I said this before. Lawsuit sounds way more dramatic then “I was mentioned in a letter sent to someone else”.

    Happy Birthday to you, Boobah!

  12. Good Morning Lovelies! Hope your Thursday is thrilling!

    Thanks NMD for the blog! And thanks to Amy and Johanna who I think are new recappers!

    MTH – always a fantastic read! Thanks for your efforts.

    About Kim & NeNe….I just do not trust this at all. Every franchise has had their “get back together” friendship story lines. It is tired Bravo!! Can’t you come up with something original? And I saw the previews for OC that starts next week….there is no way I am watching Tamra’s marriage or listening to Vicki scream all season. I am out. Sad though…because it was this franchise that was so fun to watch all that way back in the beginning. Memories…sniff. 😛

    Wishing everyone a good Thursday or as Powell would say…Friday Eve. Give yourself a pat on the back today…you deserve it!

    New post, “About Now and The Gift of the Present”, is up at my place. Enjoy!
    http://fromthedeskofmardrag.wordpress.com/

    • lizzle says:

      I thought Kim was off the show. Maybe she wants back on… or maybe it’s genuine. I am speculating that Kroy wants her off TV, because he is so level headed and now they have four children… but I could be wrong. If Kim is not wanting back on TV… then I am not sure what her motivation would be other than rekindling the friendship with Nene because they actually miss each other. I understand how Bravo has turned most of us into faces with permanent side eyes 😉 so I do get what you are saying. I just hope that this is the real deal, because they made a good team.

      • LOL Lizzle @ “permanent side eyes”! Good one…and that is pretty much how I feel about Bravo anymore. But, as I am an optimist, I would agree that I HOPE NeNe and Kim rekindle this friendship in a true way and not just for TV.

    • melthehound says:

      Thank you MarDrag 😀

  13. L.A. Chica says:

    Speaking of friendships getting back together, Kyle really confuses me with her supposed desire to have her friendship with Lisa be restored to its original status. While watching the reunion show you could see her making faces when certain positive things were said about Lisa, or when Lisa herself said something. Kyle’s face read as her having no respect for Lisa and just really not liking her very much. Which leads to the $64,000 question that we all wish Lisa or Andy or SOMEone would ask Kyle: if you think so little of Lisa, why on earth do you want to be friends with her?

    If Kyle is back next season I hope Lisa feels free to stop letting her play her game.

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      Lisa has already started giving Kyle a taste of her disrespectful version of friendship – by outing her about wetting herself in Ojai…

    • nyc mama says:

      It was also clear in Ojai by Kyle’s comments about the rooms. She showed such glee that Lisa and Brandi were getting the room outside of the house with the “Hansel and Gretel” beds and then she used her bad English accent to mock her.

      • Contessa says:

        Kyle is and has always been repulsive. She is a very poor actress to allow the public to see the looks of disdain on her face, while claiming she wants her friendship back with Lisa. I am done with this beyotch; when Lisa was trying to explain about her confrontation with Faye at her vow renewal, Kyle brushes it aside (again) with bigger things to deal with. What bigger things you beyotch…this is the hostess that got insulted by your dear dear friend in such a nasty way and than she slithers across the floor in all her repugnant glory.

        • windycitywondering2 says:

          Considering what Kyle allowed Faye to do to Brandi at her dinner party…no surprise she didn’t care that Faye offended Lisa in her own home! Kyle is so difficult to watch because her mean girl is showing and she isn’t making any attempts to hide it!

        • realhousewifeva says:

          I am sure Kyle knew exactly what Faye was telling Lisa, since I believe they talked it about it beforehand, which is why she wanted to brush it under the rug so quickly without saying “Faye was insulting you? What did she say?” or something like that…she already knew what Faye was saying.

          • L.A. Chica says:

            I agree. Either she already knew what Faye had said or she simply didn’t give two cents about Lisa’s feelings. Either way, Kyle is no friend!

          • Rebecca says:

            Worse was what she did say to Lisa : “We’re not talking about you right now” with a hand in her face!

        • TexasTart says:

          “….in such a nasty way and than she slithers across the floor in all her repugnant glory.”
          LOL at Contessa’s most appropriate description!

    • pat says:

      I agree, it’s written all over Kyle’s face, how she really feels about Lisa. It makes zero sense that she keeps demanding Lisa regard their friendship as it was before Lisa finally got her number. It’s very strange, because it’s palpable even thru the tv, her disdain for Lisa. I think as many have said, Kyle simply doesn’t understand real friendship. She has Beverly Hills/Hollywood superficial relationships. No real depth to them.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I don’t think there are any real friendships in reality TV-I think all friendships are based on who can help the other and who is best to be aligned with. JMPO b/c I think all HWs are out for themselves and the product/store/book/spinoff they are promoting.

        • Contessa says:

          Vile Kyle is just pissed off that Brandi is friends with Lisa and Yolanda, the popular girls and she is stuck with Kim and Lips. She played the wrong poker hand this season and now looks the fool.

        • L.A. Chica says:

          I think that’s probably true of many if not most of the “friendships” on the RH shows, but we do know that some women knew each other and were friends before appearing on the show, and others formed real friendships while being on the show that continue after the cameras have left. To say that none of them are real would be to deny that sometimes people do form friendships with some of their co-workers.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Every day co workers can not compare to women who go on reality shows. But that’s another story.
            I should have said the friendships we SEE as part of the show may not be as real as they seem. When the camera is rolling I feel they all play their part. I think a lot of the drama is made up and a lot of the BFF stuff is embellished. But I have become very cynical regarding what is supposed to be reality TV.

            • realhousewifeva says:

              I always feel like the ones who are very close on camera, are truly close off camera too. Like Nene/Cynthia, Kandi/Phaedra, Sonya/ Ramona and I truly believe that Brandi and Lisa are good friends off the show… Brandi said she sees Lisa 2-3 times a week which is more than I see some of my great friends! Based on all these ladies twitter feeds, they hang out with eachother off camera.
              I also think there are castmates who might be ‘good friends’ on the show, but not necessarily off camera, like Adrienne and Kyle or Gretchen and Tamra

              • nyc mama says:

                Brandi, Lisa and Yolanda spent Christmas eve together at Yolanda’s house so they do indeed have a real friendship.

                • L.A. Chica says:

                  ITA

                • pat says:

                  Loved when Kyle at the reunion tried to point out that Yolanda hasn’t tried to have an off-camera relationship with her. She said “you’ve never had me over to your home when there were no cameras.” And Brandi said, “I’ve been to her house when there were no cameras.” And Kyle said “well I haven’t.” To which Brandi replied, “well that should tell you something.” 🙂

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                Ramona and Sonja are close…when filming. This is not speculation on my part. I think when filming ends they all go back to their “real” lives.
                I can’t imagineTamra having any friends…close or otherwise!!!

                • BB says:

                  I’ve seen various articles about Ramona and Sonja at events together when RHONY isn’t filming. These aren’t paid appearance events either. They not be BFFs, but I think they are more than just working friends.

                  • mrs peabody says:

                    Ramona and Sonja knew each other when they were younger and I think were friends then and had grown apart until they met back up on housewives. They were talking about it that first season Sonja was on the show.

                • realhousewifeva says:

                  But there are ladies on these franchises that came in as friends. Obviously in real REAL life they aren’t spending as much time together…what grown woman with a career and family can go to parties every week or trips with her girlfriends on a whim? Clearly that part is not ‘reality’ and only used to get footage, I sometimes go months without seeing certain friends, but I still consider them to be my good friends nonetheless.
                  Kyle and Lisa were like that. Lisa said in Season 1 that she only agreed to do the show because Kyle was doing it and that she hoped it wouldn’t hurt their friendship.
                  I certainly do believe that Ramona and Sonja are friends in real life, while they probably spend enough time together while filming so they take a break from eachother when not filming.

              • L.A. Chica says:

                They are “work friends.” We’ve all had those, too.

            • L.A. Chica says:

              I disagree. Whether someone works in an office or on a set, it’s a job and they’re working, human beings. And we humans are social beings so it’s natural that when we spend a lot of time with other people there will be some with whom we click and become friends with outside of work.

              I don’t disagree that some of the friendships are not as real or even real at all, just that it would be wrong to make a broad, sweeping and generalized assumption that none of them are genuine.

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                I agree I shouldn’t have generalized but I told you I’m cynical!! Look at this whole NeNe/Kim thing. How many times have these 2 broken up and made up? For all we know they have been friends behind our backs the whole time.

        • realhousewifeva says:

          I think Kyle and Lisa did have a real friendship before the show, and just like lots of real marriages break up because of reality TV, so do real friendships. Look what NJ did to actual families.

      • nyc mama says:

        Lisa never said the friendship was over just that it changed and we all saw that it did and why.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      I don’t understand Kyle either. She has made it clear that she believes Lisa is fake or phony in front of the cameras and also said she is manipulative, etc. Why even bother with a friendship like that. Stick with your classy friends, like Faye and Adrienne (ha)

      • pat says:

        ITA, and as LA Chica mentioned above, all those faces Kyle makes when people she doesn’t like are talking, are pretty transparent. Love the one where she keeps her face frozen, while enlarging her eyes into saucers, which I read to say “can you believe she just said that?” She does that one a lot when Brandi makes one of her “improper” statements.

        • windycitywondering2 says:

          It seems like Kyle is trying to signal someone on the other couch to jump in but Taylor hasn’t and Kim looks like she is struggling to follow the conversation. Oh where is Faye or Adrienne when you really need them? lol

          • Catseye says:

            Kim looks really out of it.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            She miscalculated…she probably thought there would be “teams” at the reunion. She’d be the captain of one team and Lisa the captain of the other. Kyle even said when asked about if Adrienne would be missed and she said something like… well, there’s a sisterhood and some of us have had each other’s backs,…etc. I think the translation was “I’ve have had her back all this effing season and now where is SHE when I need someone to have MY back???” Though I personally did not miss Ade, I’m sure it would have been a much different reunion for Kyle with an ally.

      • princesspindy says:

        Because it’s the way she feeeeellllsss….

    • T-Rex says:

      Chica, VileKyle realizes that LisaV is a “fan” favorite in addition to that, Lisa and Ken have a good standing in the BHills community, Murray and vileKyle to me still look like social climbers. LisaV and VileKyle in my opinion, will never have the same relationship, VileKyle cannot be trusted and LisaV knows that. They will have a cordial business relationship on the show, LisaV will even play the game to be more friendly but once “trust” is lost I don’t think you can get back in Lisa’s good graces without trust

    • Powell says:

      LA Chica fantastic question.

  14. nyc mama says:

    Now this is funny!

    http://radaronline.com/exclusives/2013/03/faye-resnick-quits-real-housewives-beverly-hills/

    Does anyone believe that she decided to not come back after all the dis she took? There is even a petition to not have her back on RH.
    Very successful decorating business? She is only successful because he gets jobs through friends…the Hiltons, Richards, Maloofs etc. If she decorated Adrienne’s home, the ultimate in tacky, then that says something. Otherwise all her decorating looks the same. She certainly isn’t one of the A list decorators.

    • Orson says:

      If this is a true item (Radar Online??), it’s pretty clear to me that it’s a face-saving move by Resnick. “You can’t fire me because I QUIT!!” So, Bravo could use a new castmember or two for next season and they can either give Kyle the biotch edit or the reformed edit (like Camille got in S2). For the latter, though, Kyle’s going to have to undergo a huge paradigm shift and accept that she’s made some mistakes.

      • nyc mama says:

        Or hire Bragman like Camille and Adrienne. ;). He is 1 out of 2 so maybe he can reform Kyle like he did Camille in season 2? Then he can be 2 out of 3 although Camille reverted back to the real Camille this season so he is really 1/2 out of 2.

        The problem is Kyle is her own worst enemy and makes foolish choices. She backed the wrong horse and has been caught being a gossip, not being honest several times and stirring the pot behind the scenes. I think it all stems from the fact that she thought she would be the Queen of the show but was eclipsed by Lisa who is smarter than she is and she is jelly. Jealousy doesn’t make people make smart choices as we see with Kyle.

      As if she actually thought she was going to be asked to be a full time housewife after Bravo pulled her blog and never had her blog again. But THANK GOD, I’m so glad she is gone. She auditioned for the role for 3 seasons now…3rd time was not a charm. GO AWAY FAYE

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      And so it begins – I quit (because I know I won’t be asked back)…market test on whether or not Faye would be good for RHBH or not – seeing how every blog is full of posts that basically say if Faye comes back next season I won’t be watching, IMO the writing is on the wall. Bye bye Faye you are definately not RHBH worthy.
      As for the show hurting her design/decorator business – I totally agree! One look at Kyle’s dining room and I wouldn’t hire her either.

      • HuskerHuny says:

        Not RHBH worthy? She’s not human being worthy! But she is human and there’s always a chance at redemption. An itty bitty chance, but a chance nonetheless.

      • Powell says:

        LOL WCW. “I agree.” 🙂

    • LA_Debra says:

      I don’t care why, if this is true and she’s not coming back, I’m good with that!

    • Powell says:

      She sure can’t join the cast of Million Dollar Decorators.

    • T-Rex says:

      I call a bit of BS on the article, RadarOnLiarLiarPantsonFire(allegedly) gets more things wrong than right regarding the HW franchise, they were the ones to report that the Reunions for this season had taken place months ago, and they were wrong. First off, MorallyCorruptFayeKR was not in contention for a full time HW gig, my source said that the most they would have given her was “friend” status this season. If anything MorallyCorruptFayeKR would quit to “save face” because I think she told folks she was being courted for full time status because she and VileKyle were trying so desperately to make this happen, but this wasn’t the case, my one source said they know box office “poison” when they see it, and with her background she wasn’t the one to bring on board full time. RadarOnliarliarPantsOnFire(allegedly) loves VileKyle and the HoofMaloof because those two do “dish” to them on things happening on the show, and so that’s why they are doing a “suckup” piece about MorallyCorruptFayeKR, to get her sympathy or some show of support, uhm EPIC FAIL. Bravo isn’t stupid they like the drama and such, but MorallyCorruptFayeKR will not bring ratings for that Drama, and they know it.

      • nyc mama says:

        I agree. They rarely get anything right and are so far up some housewives arses it is disgusting. There is no way they would have considered her a HW with all the backlash they got for her appearances this year. They like controversial housewives but not one’s that make people threaten to not watch if they return. I posted it because it was so absurd it was actually comical.

  15. nyc mama says:

    Someone probably already posted this in the past but just in case it wasn’t here’s an old article from the Daily Mail about the Hilton’s/Richards for your reading pleasure.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-414603/The-Hideous-Hiltons.html

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Did you read the book about this family? I want to read it but only if it is full of good family crap-ya know what I mean? I don’t want to read a fluff book about them-I want the nitty gritty!!

      • realhousewifeva says:

        I never read the book but I don’t think it’s a fluff piece. However, I’ve heard it’s mostly about the Hiltons, it does touch on Big Kathy and what a nasty piece of work she was, allegedly.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Thanks rh-I’m going to check outHouse of Hilton on B&N and see what it’s about

        • realhousewifeva says:

          Here’s a part of a review about the type of mother Big Kathy was:

          “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, it turns out. Kathy was the daughter of a frustrated singer (known as Big Kathy) who got pregnant, and had to give up her aspirations. But instead she decided to achieve fame through her daughters, turning them into diva child actors — and Kathy into a younger version of herself. Namely, a psychotic user of everyone she came across.”

          “I can understand why the book looks at the Paris Hilton’s maternal heritage because by examining the lives of her mother and maternal grandmother one can see where Paris learned her sense of entitlement and her gold-digging ways.”

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Oh she makes Mommy Dearest seem lovely!!

            • nyc mama says:

              A real piece of work. Apparently Kathy’s father was a disappointed gangster who got Big Kathy preggers in the back of a car – at least that is what this excerpt stated. (I added disappointed just because I felt like it. 😉 )

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                Isn’t the Hilton family full of scandal? The whole Zsa Zsa thing-going from step mother to lover. So gross!!!

              • Catseye says:

                Didn’t “Big Kathy” #2 (Kathy, Kyle, Kim’s mother), marry a gangster type too, and separate from him briefly, to throw the Hilton’s off, when Kathy and Rick got engaged?

      • nyc mama says:

        Jill, no I haven’t. I have only read excerpts like this one. None put them in a good light. I just can’t bring myself to read a whole book on them. These excerpts and reviews are more than enough to tell me all I need to know.

    MTH I loved your blog today. I actually got to watch last night and reading your comments made me LOL

    Hi Friends: I just posted a prayer request on the Prayer and Advice page. Thank you, Thank you. Ok, now I’m off break…back to teaching my little angels!!!

  18. BB says:

    Happy Birthday Boobah. Hope you have a great day.

    • Boobah says:

      Thank you so much BB!!! I hope you are feeling better. *hands BB a box of tissues just in case*

      • BB says:

        I’m still feeling pretty crappy. Tanner my dog has decided he likes taking tissues out of the tissue box. I keep asking him if he has a runny nose.

        • Boobah says:

          That’s really cute! He was empathizing, maybe? Like sympathy pains, he had a sympathy cold. I’s sorry you’re still not feeling well. You better get well pronto, so that you can hold that new grandbaby of yours when he comes!

  19. LizzieLou says:

    Looks like Bernie is at it again! Just threw Kyle under the bus on his facebook.

    • BB says:

      What is he saying about her? Poor Kyle. She doesn’t have a friend left. Faye is gone and her sister isn’t exactly the best ally to have.

    • Boobah says:

      I’d like to know what he said also. Do tell. 🙂

  20. BB says:

    Let’s face it. All of these housewives have an angle and none of them are innocent girl scouts. They are going to slant things to their advantage in order to gain fans and remain relavant or they may not be asked back for the next season. Sometimes it backfires on them and sometimes it works. But oh, how quickly those tides of popularity can change. They should all be thinking about that when they are cooking up their next scheme. Adrienne is her own worst enemy. So is Jill Zarin. They both plotted and planned ways to try to bring down the “stars” of their franchises and they both failed miserably.

  21. HAPPY BIRTH DAY BOOBAH !!! carrot cake sounds really good about now….yums
    enjoy your DAY….
    hugs and peace
    diva

    • Boobah says:

      Oh Diva!!! Thank you so much!!! 🙂 Btw, I have been keeping up with your situation, and may I say that you are handling it like a pro! You are quite wise! McCreepy sounds like a disturbed person. My thoughts and prayers have been with Mr. Ford as he heals. And for you, so that you don’t shoot him in his other kneecap! LOL!

  22. Boobah says:

    Thank you NMD, BB, Amy, Johanna, and MelTH for a great blog today! And many thanks to everyone who has wished me a Happy Birthday! It made my day! 😀

    MelTH –
    I completely agree with you that last night’s Survivor was boring! AND I am so over Pinky that I need a new word for over. He failed at the challenge. He was dead weight and IF he was the great leader he claims to be, then he would have seen that he was a burden to the team, handed off his 20 lb sack, and gotten out of the way!
    I also agree that I am sick of hearing about Boston Rob! Omg, they need to give it a rest with that. It drove me bonkers.
    Personally, I think the game would be much more interesting if he was sent home.

    • melthehound says:

      IF he was the great leader he claims to be, then he would have seen that he was a burden to the team…
      ^^^^^^

      That’s part of what makes him a bad leader, We all, as well as the castaways, know he’s in it for himself though. For ‘over’, finished or done also work nicely 🙂

      BTW, if I get a vote, German Chocolate.

      • Boobah says:

        LOL!!!! I’m DONE w/ Pinky!!!! *Probstingly* One vote Carrot, two votes German Chocolate, two votes Both.

  23. shamrockblonde says:

    Jeff – thanks for the recap!! I missed it last night so reading your recap was something I had been even more looking forward to than usual – Malcom and Reynold – two arrogant asshats – Cocharan cracks me up – got any favorits for the win, Jeff?

    *hugs Boobah really hard* – Happy Birthday, beautiful – hope all your wishes come true!!

    • Boobah says:

      Thank you very much Shamrock!!!!!! I just love your hugs! 😀 *hugs ShamrockBlonde really hard back*

    • melthehound says:

      Hi, SRB.. I actually wouldn’t mind seeing Cochran win but among the favorites, he’s the only one.

      • shamrockblonde says:

        agreed – I wouln’t mind seeing him win either – he has the brains, the wits and the quiet charm – not too sure about his strength,but you never know – Pinky on the other hand, is a legend in his own mind……..

  24. plainviewsue says:

    One of the blogs out there wrote about Bernie now going after Kyle on his facebook page!

    Now, I think that Bernie is huge wad of dog doody & does everything that Adrienne bids him to do.

    Bernie actually backed Lisa & said it is absolutely true that Kyle used Adrienne to get her listing & once the house was sold, she was done with her. He said during the season Kyle would call Adrienne all the time.

    Kyle tried so hard to dismiss her friendship with Adrienne at the reunion, even saying something about it being an illusion. Did anyone understand that comment? Lisa tried to point out that Kyle made a point (and Maurice for that matter) that they are always having their backs.

    I also agree with an above posting about Kyle’s faces. I really cannot stand this woman.

    As for Faye backing out of joining RHOBH cos the show has “ruined her”………………….there are no words!!

    • princesspindy says:

      Yeah Sue, THAT’S what ruined her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Bernie’s facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/bernie.guzman It sure is a treat.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Did he delete his account? The link brings to an error page.

          • realhousewifeva says:

            You have to be logged in to facebook…and he’s CRAZY!

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              Ok I will try again

              • realhousewifeva says:

                What’s scary is that there are actually people who comment in support of him on there.

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                  OMG rh I was just coming back to write that!! The people on his page really like him??

                  • nyc mama says:

                    Did you scroll down? I now feel like I need a shower. He is claiming she is an anti-American, hates “Latins” and he doesn’t even know how to write. This was on Monday.

                    “Bringing everyone up to speed, this is how it all began.
                    I didn’t sell stories, LISA was modified that I “told on her”…” I think he meant mortified.

                    And Adrienne keeps him. It says as much about her as it does him.

                    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                      He is a real ASS…he needs to get off FaceBook and go away-I dont want to go back to his page ever again. I went to look that time he ranted about Brandi and now again today.. 2 times too many…what a sicko!!!

        • T-Rex says:

          Bernie looks to have taken down all the information on VileKyle, or at least I couldn’t see it but left his rant against LisaV is still on there

      • pat says:

        Wowza. Clearly that came with Adrienne’s seal of approval. I don’t believe Adrienne cared about a friendship with Kyle, or cared to keep in touch, any more than Kyle did. I think Adrienne had to know, at least in some recess of her brain, Kyle and Mo were laying on the loyalty act for business purposes. They KNEW, Ad and Paul have been on the outs for a very, very long time. They were circling around, waiting for the potential listing. And it was to Adrienne’s benefit, too, as she needed “friends” during filming who would appear to have her back. And she knew it would be a dig at Lisa, for Kyle to be on her team. Then old two-face Kyle had to go and back-pedal away from her at the reunion. All bets were off at that point.

        Too bad, so sad, Kyle. As you say, you are very strong and don’t need anyone to fight your battles. Good luck with that.

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      Well isn’t Bernie the little tattletale!

      • nyc mama says:

        The fact that he is still employed by Adrienne tells us everything we need to know.

        Kyle must feel the fool and no dount she is yet again crying. She was taken big time and has lost a close friend (Lisa), her accomplice (Faye) and her credibility. A trifecta but not the one she wanted.

        The opinions across the internet about her are scathing – similar to Jill Zarin and we know that Kyle doesn’t have a thick skin. So she may have gotten the money from the sales of these home but she lost things that are so much more important.

        • Orson says:

          Absolutely. Since Charo requires her staff to sign NDA’s, all of Bernie’s crap has to be Official Approved by Charo crappola.

        • Powell says:

          Yes she has. I wouldn’t want to lose Lisa as a friend. Lisa seems like she would do whatever for a true friend.

        • realhousewifeva says:

          I knew, when Paul tweeted a pic of him out to dinner with Mauricio and Kyle a couple weeks ago, that Adrienne would get revenge. Doesn’t she always have to get revenge? You’d think after Bernie has been called out on national TV for being such a jackass that he’d tone down a bit. Does he think that pretending he’s on Lisa’s side will gain him any points?

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            I don’t think it’s points Bernie is after-he is looking for his 15 minutes and he sure doesn’t care how he gets them.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              By the way-what he said about Portia being paraded around like a prized gerbil was so stupid and clearly said to incite a response-I hope he doesn’t get one!

              • realhousewifeva says:

                yah that was ridiculous

              • nyc mama says:

                Jill it is vile just like him. The only response I would like to see is a la Trump “You’re fired!” but I don’t think that will happen. I can’t imagine anyone else hiring him..

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                  He is a dirty bastard-when I read his rant about Brandi I though the was an ass looking for attention. When he talked about Lisa on the show I thought he was an ass looking for attention. He is still an ass and still looking for attention. He should start telling shit about Adrienne-that will get him plenty of that elusive attention!!

                • realhousewifeva says:

                  She will NEVER fight him, can you imagine the stories he will tell?

                  • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                    I bet we will see a rant about her one day-he can’t seem to control himself.

    • Powell says:

      LOL. 🙂 🙂 the show ruined her? Is that what she said sue? Who wrote that line for her? She tried to ruin every epi she was on. No one told her to run her trap. She has no one to blame but herself.I she’s saying her biz is ruined she should have kept to what she said her first season that she didn’t want to be a HW cause she basically wanted to protect her clients privacy or something to that affect. If she lost clients or past clients have lost her biz card its because they didn’t want to associate w/a person that spoke to her hosts & their friends the way she has. This is funny. 🙂

My friends LOVED it!!! I think the length of my arms gave me a leverage advantage, lol. And I have some big hands, but I am an optical illusion cuz I look small. HA!!

    I just dont understand why this cretin won’t just do the right thing and be done with it…

    Kim and NeNe…. smh at this one..must be some ulterior motive behind all this for sure…maybe trying to sell a future spin off show to bravo ?? I mean..who announces to the world they are now back being ” friends” with someone…

    caught the bh/bs reunion in rerun..YAWN.. was so bored with it I fell asleep.. think I am really over all these hws and their shenaningans… now what was funny to watch in rerun and LATE NIGHT was on STYLE network … the table flipping dinner episode from jersey…hahahahahahahahaha
    WOW.. carolwhine sure did look rough in that episode…lol so manly and bullish she was…

    busy wed nite at work..seemed weird to be working mid week..sold 8 rooms which is kinda unheard of this time of year…also booked 6 reservations for next week..yipee..
    Corporate inspection coming soon… need to pass in order to keep that Corporate rating .. went over a few things that I felt needed to be addressed in our lobby /breakfast area and Nona the owner agreed…she was pleased that I have taken an actual interest in the well being of the hotel.. I explained that I wasnt doing it to brown nose but doing it because I really enjoy working there and if I could contribute to making the hotel successful then it was more or less job security for me…
    she said I was doing a good job and showed me 2 emails they had recieved about my servicing of the guests upon check in and thru their stay….lol I must say..I do find something to keep me busy while on shift…washing windows.. pulling weeds out side when I go out for smoke break etc…
    oh yea… mc creepy came in last night for his shift early..he wasnt expecting me to be there…hahahaha…I had all my work done already…. he was SHOCKED when he walked in and saw my bubbly face standing there… I just smiled and said heh whats up !!!! clocked out at 11 and was gone in a flash…. min. amount of words were spoken..all polite of course…..lol lol cept for the ones under my breath…..!!!!!!

    check up with dr and patient tomorrow…he’s so grouchy this week…I just ignore him…lol knee still swollen so will ask if this is normal tomorrow…hopefully this surgery worked and we wont have to go the knee replacement route… fingers crossed….

      I think you have contributed so much in a short time at the hotel that their inspection scores should be going up. You’re doing a great job. McCreep just needs to keep away from you.

      I’m sorry Mr. Ford is cranky but I’m sure it will pass. I hope his appt goes well. I’ll cross my fingers. I hope you are getting your rest. Take care Miss Diva.

I guess Goodman’s exwife filed an appeal on behalf of their children.

    • melthehound says:

      I think that’s actually a good idea. Cut the regular ‘reunion’ to one episode, wait a week while viewers ask questions, gather the HWs back and put them on the spot for answers Only to viewer questions.

  35. realhousewifeva says:

    Watching Season 2 Atlanta reunion. Very subdued reunion, such a change of pace from the usual reunions. I’m assuming it was supposed to be in respect for Kandi and the death of A.J.?

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      Was that the reunion where Andy couldn’t get NeNe and Kim to fight? I think that was over $$$ and the girls agreed not to bring the drama because they wanted more $$$.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        That’s a good ploy on their part…that reunion was kind of boring and the whole thing with Kandi’s boyfriend was so sad. Did Kim sing at that reunion?

    I’m flipping through US Weekly (the new one, with Tiger and Lindsey on the cover) and wow – it’s full of Bravolebrities. Nene is in it, Alexis is in it — and Adrienne tells why she quit the housewives. It’s all about protecting her kids. Of course it is. So here were her one liners:

    When Kyle was on WWHL, with the doctor “V” I think, she told Kyle she needed to ask Lisa what she needed to do to restore the trust in their friendship. Just ask her, the doctor said. Kyle said she thought she had done that.
    I don’t see that at all. Kyle continually stated only how Lisa was wrong to do this to her, not what would make Lisa trust her again.
    At the reunion she villifed Lisa, saying “you try to make me look bad, your standards are so different for me”.
    When Kyle speaks about friendship (or much else for the matter), I just don’t believe her.

          • I Need A Life! says:

            I went to see her that night at home. Her face was black and blue and I told her she’d be fine. Just rest. The next morning she drove herself to the hospital. The doctors said her brain was swelling with fluid and they had to relieve the pressure. I saw her before she went into surgery, and screamed, (Channeling Cher …) “Ma. You can’t die like this. I can’t tell the kids that grandma died because she slipped on an ice cube.”
            The next spring, Liam Neeson’s wife died by hitting her head on ice while skiing. She thought she was fine, but hours later died from brain swelling. When I heard the story on the news, I literally called my mom and said, “Mom. I’m really sorry.” She asked for what and I said, “Just watch the news tonight. You’ll understand.”

            • realhousewifeva says:

              I’m so glad your mom is okay!
              Ever since Liam Neeson’s wife died, I am SO SCARED when my kids fall and hit their heads. It really is terrifying. There was also a story of a little girl who fell on her driveway and bumped her head and there was no outward damage, but because she kept saying her head hurt the next day her parents took her to the emergency room and she had bleeding in her brain.
              A few months ago my 15 month old climbed out of her stroller while we were eating at the mall food court, and it all happened so fast that I couldn’t catch her and she fell onto the floor and hit her head. I was a nervous wreck, even though she seemed fine, that I still took her to the emergency room in the middle of the night just to make sure everything was okay.

              • rabblerouser2010R says:

                Oh your poor baby….I know the feeling too of worrying about if your kids will get hurt. From what I have read from the moms here of older children….it looks like that feeling never goes away. 🙂

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          Oh dear God…I am sorry to read this. I hope that everything turned out well for her in the end.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          I Need a Life – – -wow!!! I hope all is well with your ma, now. You can bet I’m gonna bend over and pick up that errant ice cube from now on!!! Or at least kick it out of the way!

        • NJBev says:

          omg. that’s some story.
          hope she’s ok now!

    It looks like Mauricio is no longer either of the Grammer’s go to real estate agent any longer.
    Last week Camille listed her Malibu home with Chris Cortazzo of Coldwell Banker and now it looks like Kelsey has listed their former Beverly Glen home with Christopher Dyson of Keller Williams Realty.

        Boobah, late to your bday party, hope you have a great one!! I am surrounded by Aries in my family and it’s a fantastic sign! (i’m into zodiac stuff…..:))

        • Boobah says:

          Thank you so much chismosa, my fellow Long Islander!!! That’s really cool about all the Aries in your life…or is it?! I understand that we are a bit tough deal with. LOL! I like zodiac stuff too but I am not well versed in it.

          • chismosa says:

            Yes I almost forgot we suffered through Sandy similarly!

            My dad’s like a triple Aries (means regular sign, also moon sign, plus I *think* rising sign).
            My moon is in Aries so I experience the crazy Aries temper tantrums lol

            My best friend is an Aries and she is hysterical and no-nonsense

            Have a wonderful year ahead!

  43. LaineyLainey says:

    OMG – Wendy is reporting/spreading the rumor about Kordell. Which rumors, you ask?? YOU KNOW WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT!!!

    • Powell says:

      Yeah I missed it this morn.

    • chismosa says:

      Hey Lainey- today??
      I saw yesterday haven’t watched today’s yet- i know she was like ‘Kordell you be good to Portia, cause the STREETS are talkin’ and you KNOW it!’ with a wink.
      She said something more today?

      Hope you’re well Lainey!

      • Laineylainey says:

        Hi chismosita ! Doing great. Sorry but just now saw your comment here. She was repeating the old story of how Kordell had a teem meeting to set the record “straight” about the rumors re his sexuality.

  44. Boobah says:

    I just read the link that realhousewifeva posted upthread from Bernie about Kyle. O.M.G.! After reading that horrible rant, all I could think about was that Brandi might feel a little redeemed. She’s been saying all along that Bernie was clearly Adrienne’s mouthpiece. Too me, it seemed that nobody paid her any mind, except for Lisa. Well, now it’s pretty clear.
    Personally, I think some of what he wrote is true. Hell, we’ve discussed it here. But he went way too far when he brought up Kyle’s little girl.
    Bernie is way off his rocker. There is something wrong with that man. Wow!

    OH! I also had another thought, it’s been questioned why Bravo removed the surrogacy from the storyline while all other storylines stayed front and center. I wonder if it has to do with HIPPA law.

    Hypothetically speaking, IF her surrogacy was a result of a medical/psychological issue, those types of issues are bound by law to stay confidential between patient and physician unless the patient signs documentation allowing for the release of that medical info. It could be argued that if she allowed the surrogacy to be part of the storyline, that she would be opening herself up to speculation that she would find unsettling/harmful/distressing because it would be directly related to her medical issues that she ultimately doesn’t want to share with the general public. Of course I am just speculating. Obviously IF this were actually the case, she could easily say that her surrogacy was a choice and nothing more. BUT Adrienne could have played this card just to stick it to Bravo. IMO, and I’m just throwing this out there, I can completely see Adrienne doing this to be malicious. Even if she had no real medical issue, she could claim an emotional condition which is also protected by HIPPA. As far as I know, as long as a doctor has it documented, it’s done. There’s not much Bravo could do about it so they re-edited rather than spend the time and money on fighting her. Maybe this would explain why Andy was spitting nails when he mentioned her in the beginning of the reunion.

    I know, it’s a long shot. But Adrienne has done so many under-handed things, that nothing she does would surprise me.

    PS – I also think something like this is why Jacqueline got a pass when she was a no-show at her reunion. She even tweeted that she had an emotional breakdown. They couldn’t fire her as it would violate Americans with Disabilities Act.

    *phew* That was a lot of thinking for Boobah! Time for cake. The votes are in and its…..CARROT Cake!

    • Powell says:

      Boobah Adrienne missed another opportunity. She & Paul I’m sure are very happy they had the twins & it wouldn’t have been possible w/o a surrogate. They could have talked about what a blessing it was to find the right person, the process they went through, the agency they used, how it made their family complete. She could have started a foundation. She could have brought more awareness. We are learning more about surrogacy but don’t know a lot. She could have educated us. She blew it. She hid it like a dirty little secret of the 40s & 50s when a 17yr old got pregnant. The twins are 10 I guess & they had not told them & I think its sad. Like they are ashamed.

      • Orson says:

        If the children were made with Charo’s ova and Paul’s sperm, what does it matter whose womb they gestated in? But what do I know, I’m a guy?

      • Boobah says:

        I completely agree with you, Powell. I could definitely stand some education in that area. She blew it for sure. Especially considering that Camille also used a surrogate, they could have bonded or joined forces to put the issue of surrogacy out there. It does seem like she is ashamed of it.

      • L.A. Chica says:

        ITA, Powell.

      • nyc mama says:

        Doesn’t she always miss opportunities? That seems to be her m.o. She doesn’t seem good at anything -nada, zip, zilch. Not business, not marketing, not friendships or relationships (E is reporting she broke up with Sean Stewart who always looked miserable in photos with her), not hiring normal people (i.e. Bernie), not decorating or fashion, nothing. Even her manipulations and revenge tactics are epic fails.

        There are so many things she should be ashamed of but this is NOT one of them

  45. Cartwheels says:

    NMD, thank you, you have restore my faith in this blog with your unbias comment that was spot on.

    “No wonder Adrienne and Camille were frustrated. Too bad for Adrienne that her vile behavior behind the scenes to both Lisa and Brandi, and then to husband Paul, made her completely and utterly unsympathetic. As for Brandi, I will take everything she says/tweets with a grain of salt from now on. She could have cleared this up months ago, but she let people demonize Camille Grammer for telling the truth. Yes, I know she was selling a book and it was all about attention, but not cool.”

    Por a moment I thought I lived in an alternative universe where everybody hadn’t heard what I hear and completely ignore the crux of the matter that has poisoned this whole season. The fact that Adrienne is such an unsympathetic character with the charisma of a cardboard and with a loon to her side like Bernie and Faye doesn’t mean that Brandi has not been playing up this situations for months and months. She could had at any moment during last year clarified that 1) she wasn’t being sued, 2) she hadn’t received a C&D letter, 3) Geneva received one because she might be talking about issues that she learned as part of her proffesional relationship with Adrienne.

    A simple “My friend received a letter, my name was on it and I panic thinking I was being sued but my lawyer quickly clarified for me that until I am officially served, then I am okay. Instead of that she elaborated more and more on her web of lies, added lawyer fees to this and not for one moment do I think that Lisa and Yolanda never asked her to show them that letter and didn’t know that Brandi was lying.

    Bravo is next to blame for keep perpetuating this awful lie and playing with the edit to make it look like Paul had said “she was been warned” as if he was talking about Brandi and not Geneva, Adrienne probably upset the network by being so adamant about keeping her secret underwraps but Bravo game Adrienne the ultimate FU with the editing job. Adrienne badly overreacted and didn’t know how to handle this situation so she just took her toys away and basically left.

    Brandi is lucky that she got away with it and that the added contribution of Bernie and Faye made Adrienne into such an unlikeable character but the fact remains and for me it will always remain that Brandi not only spilled information that was not part of the show and did it just to be vindictive and revengeful (her words) but she lied, lied and lied some more by omiting a simple detail. I will always look at Brandi as one of the most conniving and deceitful HWs of the Bravo network, she will be adding the likes of Jill Zarin, Tamra Barney, Faye Resnick and Jacqueline Laurita that I would not believe a word they say unless it comes notarized.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I’m kind of hoping that in part 2 of the reunion Andy asks Brandi why she kept saying they were suing her but he won’t. We heard about her legal fees and lawsuit all season and they discussed it for about a minute Monday night. He calls out people for random things but never for the things I really want to know about!!

      • Realhousewifeva says:

        I think Andy is not going into it to punish Adrienne for being a no-show. He doesn’t want to redeem her in any way. Cartwheels, I still love me some Brandi but I did comment about it in my post after the reunion aired, so not everyone was ignoring it!

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          That’s probably true about Andy punishing her but every reunion leaves me with questions. I never feel like I get the answers I think I need-it’s just lots of yelling and Andy asking questions that never get answered!!

        • Cartwheels says:

          I just had time to read the blog in itself and not all the comments.
          This has been a huge mess, the whole season has evolved around a secret/ lawsuit and then letter and it turns that it was all a lie.
          The main reason why I don’t buy into the Brandi got panicked because her name was mentioned in a letter directed to somebody else is because I do not believe, and I repeat, do not believe that Brandi was ever called into a meeting or ask to sign anything.
          I mean for somebody who for five episodes cried that she was being sued and even repeated that to Adrienne’s face, someone who was called out by Camille and asked to please tell the truth but still denied it. Actually Camille was the first one to mention Geneva, and Brandi still denied it. The word friend was never mentioned by Brandi until this reunion when there has been plenty of oppotunities, blogs, interviews, etc for her to either tell the truth or provide some clarification to this issue.
          I have all the reasons to believe that Brandi will make up, twist, embellish, flat out lie any to just prove her point and further her agenda.

          BTW this doesn’t mean that I am a fan of Kyle, or Adrienne, Kim, let alone Faye, who I found despicable and in the same category as Bernie. It has never been a choice of either or for me, I can dislike Adrienne, Kyle, Camille, hate Faye and Bernie and that doesn’t change the fact that I find what Brandi did despicable and completely underhanded.

      • Cartwheels says:

        He won’t, the subject is done. Andi couldn’t even bother to ask her a simple question like , “why would your lawyer charge you so much in lawyer fees when you haven’t been formally served”. or “Why did your friend Jennifer said that she had seen the letter that was directed to you”.

        Of course Andy has known all along that Brandi was lying through and through but he was more determined to stick it up Adrienne’s behind because she quit mid season and Bravo had to enforce her contract. Bravo played a huge role in the perpetuation of this lie.

    • Exit4 says:

      ^^^^^^^What she said^^^^^^^
      Spot on!

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I been waiting for you Exit!!!

        • Exit4 says:

          Jill, I had a major rant below. I am to please. I have a second rant on tap, I’m just letting you all absorb the massive long ness of the first one! 🙂

      • Cartwheels says:

        Exit, I am just a little perplexed because I am not blind and I know that the Bravo HW are not the image of true or reality for that matter, they all lie, bend the truth, try to push their own agendas, speak behind other’s backs, gossip, are petty and catty, all that applies to every and each of the Bravo HW from all franchises across the board. Nobody is safe, to some degree they all do it.

        What I find completely unprecedented is the lengths that Brandi went through (with Bravo’s blessing) to perpetuate this lie, was she so dumb that she thought she could say “she is suing me” and nobody would go to the trouble of doing a simple court search and find that it was not true? was she so dumb that she mistook being mentioned is a C&D letter sent to a friend/lawyer as the same as “You sent me a C&D letter” , I mean , maybe my memory fails me but I don’t remember quite another HW who has ever done this and got away with it.
        If it is true (which I certainly based on her record do not believe for a second) that she paid any amount to a lawyer , wouldn’t that lawyer had put her immediately at ease after the first meeting and let her know that unless and until she is formally served, she has nothing to worry about and when she receives a C&D letter directed to her then they can take it from there. – 500 dollars for initial consultation if that.
        Brandi says that she was required to attend a meeting and sign a paper promising that she would never talk about Adrienne, really? so let me get this straight, a lawyer hired by Brandi actually adviced her that despite not having been served and not being held legally responsible for anything at that point, that she needed to sign a letter where she basically admits that she has been talking about Adrienne and promises to stop?
        Isn’t one of the basic common sense legal laws that you do not admit to anything unless you have to? This is so far out, not even the most stupid lawyer would even consider telling Brandi that she has to sign anything, being that she has not been served with anything.
        Brandi lied about so much that I think is perfectly possible that she lied about being ask to have a meeting and/or sign a document.

      • Catseye says:

        I don’t care for Brandi any more either. And at first I thought she was great.

        • Cartwheels says:

          I think she can have good moments when she is just being her, no drama, no instigations, no bickering. I remember the scene is Paris with Yolanda doing the cartwheels and thinking, wow this is the Brandi that I would like to see more of/ Just fun, relaxed, talking about herself/
          I am not sure why Brandi doesn’t trust herself a little bit more and realizes that she doesn’t have to have a nemesis all the time, she doesn’t have to be picking up fights to be likeable.
          I wish I could give her the benefit of the doubt and believe that she just momentarily panicked but I am just not that gollible, even if I believed that it is possible that she panicked when her friend/lawyer Geneva showed her the letter that she has received and where Brandi’s name is mentioned (according to Adrienne’s blog I think) as one of the people who Geneva is sharing this privileged information. The only reasonable explanation is that it would had taken her a one lawyer meeting/consultation to realize that she wasn’t being sued and she hadn’t been served. Everything after that was gross lying on her part, and that I can’t overlook.

  46. JustDee says:

    I was reading the comments about the letter/not letter above and a light bulb went off!
    Besides deniability, I think Adrianne sent the letter to Brandi’s friend so she could go after Brandi without violating her Bravo contract!

    MTH – Thanks for the Survivor recaps. I still can’t keep these people and teams straight!

    • melthehound says:

      You’re welcome JD 😀

    • lillybee says:

      That does explain it.

    • Cartwheels says:

      Brandi’s friend and lawyer just happens to be Adrienne’s ex lawyer and ex-business partner. My idea is that she was served with a C&D letter because this was not the only information she had been spreading about Adrienne, there is much more than that. As her ex-lawyer she had privileged information and I think that in this case a C&D letter was fitting.
      Brandi could have said exactly that, she could have said “She is suing my friend in revenge because she can’t sue me” but that is not what Brandi did. The whole season she tried really hard to make us believe that she was either being sued or that she was the recipient of the letter.

    • Vegas Chick says:

      Bingo! We have a winner. Very good insight into the legal side, JustDee. Yep, “The Stainer” did exactly that to skirt around the legal repercussions of her contract. #smartthinkin’

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        I don’t think Adrienne really skirted around anything. If someone that was either her attorney or another type o employee who had a non disclosure agreement was talking…(supposedly to Brandi) then going after the source of the leak is just that.

        They (Adrienne and maybe Paul and/or the Maloofs) didn’t pick some name out of a hat who had a relationship with Brandi…then picked someone who was under contract with them. And fair play to them….

  47. I Need A Life! says:

    Has anyone seen the new web commercials with Lisa V. starring in, “Breakfast After Dark,” for “I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.” I just went to aol and there it is. She’s gorgeous.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I didn’t know she had a commercial…gotta go check it out!!

    • I Need A Life! says:

      It’s a series of short vignettes or a series of short cooking segments with the “gorgeous men in Lisa’s life.” One segment has her restaurant chef preparing a pizza with the butter…and there’s Ken in another segment preparing something else. All were filmed in her Villa Blanca kitchen.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    • Boobah says:

      Oh, thank you TT! Today was great. The cake was delicious! I gotta tell ya, I have never commented this much in one day ever, maybe not even in a month. When I scroll through, all I see it my damn butterfly all over the place! I think I might have a blog hangover tomorrow. 😉

    Amy and Johanna-great job with the blogs. Ms. Zoe is making me tired! I wish there were only photo shoots where she dressed people in those gorgeous designer clothes and less of her being stressed about her mediocre fashion line.
    Brad and his sis were so cute last night-that girl looked beautiful in every dress. Brad is a great stylist b/c he knew exactly what dresses to pick! I love that she asked him to be the best man!

      Omg I was going to start watching Brads show (1/2 hr now, innnnnnnteresting ) but if Brad’s sister and mom are on, omg zzzzzzzzz’s all around

      They were like zombies last season. I presume she’s getting married? Hope the guy has a big personality lol.

  52. Exit4 says:

    So much has been said about contracts, but the truth is none of know anything besides what has been out there in blogs and media. Or from sources. All of which should be taken with a grain of salt. There’s a reason none if the woman discuss it-they can’t. Except Brandi on Howard stern. And I believe she may have been told to STFU!

    It’s all speculation. On which note I will take my turn to speculate! Lol

    There’s much talk that not showing up at the reunion violates the contract and you lose your pay etc. but I don’t think it’s that cut and dry. All contracts have outs. Jaculine laurita, Kim Richards ( even though she filmed separately), I do think there’s flexibility there. IMO, and this is just my opinion, while the woman may be expected to attend the reunions, I believe it is a separate compensation. Meaning, they are paid a salary for appearing on the show itself and paid again (like a stipend) at reunion time. One doesn’t effect the other $$$ wise. In the real world, people violate stipulations in their contracts probably everyday! Then IF (key word IF) you are fired for it, you go off and that’s it. They don’t ask for your paycheck back because you worked. Now I know, some of you could come up with examples both ways, so could I. But not knowing the facts if their contracts, it’s just talk really (and that goes for me too!).

    Think about it this way, these shows are filmed and sit in editing and in que for months-almost a year sometimes. There’s no way anyone, TV show or not is withholding pay for that work based in one 12 hour reunion days months later. Mostly because there is no way either side can predict what’s going to occur between filing the show, airing the show and the reunion. And given jac and kind situations, we see it isn’t an automatic ticket off the show.

    So I am throwing it out there that the reunion is a separate compensation. If you don’t show, you forfit that $$ and depending in the situation, your future with the show and the network will be in jeopardy.

    Which brings me to my last point with the Adrienne fired thing. Bravo has been pretty consistent with not making any decisions until after the season is in the can. It’s media and blogs that speculate. Caroline, jaculine and Kathy were all 100% definitely fired for jersey season 5 according to “sources”. Last time I checked, they’re still there. Even the arguments about Adrienne not filming or threatening to sue bravo are moot. What we are is an edited product. None of us know how much anyone filmed it didn’t film. And thatsvwhatbyoubget paid for. Not the editors final product. As for them being angry with her for threatening to sue, again, that’s all speculative. And even if it were true, one thing I DO know for a fact (see my random reality posts to Mel) is that when you sign on to a reality show, you forfit your right to sue them for anything. Including death! That’s why you rarely see lawsuits and when you do, they go nowhere. The networks know what’s important in a contract and what is negotiable. So, Adrienne could make all the threats in the world. It’s not happening and she knew it. I think the while subject of them avenging her for her threats is manufacturd by the fans for the most part. Meaning, these things ate a way bigger to US as outsiders as opposed to the ones really on the inside…because they actually know what’s going on.

    I truly believe, that Adrienne leaving is a combo of quitting/firing. Given the things she (and bernie) put out there, I’m not sure they bought a gag order story from her. I believe they wanted her to show up and probably would have brought her back. Why not? Even if the fans don’t love her, in reality, her storylines were pretty much the entire show and would have been most of the reunion. What did everyone talk about this year? Adrienne’s secret and all things Adrienne. That’s what they WANT! I think she made the decision to leave on her own. I don’t think she cared about bring a housewife and was done. Andy himself tried to get her to show up and she refused. So they let her go and she didn’t care. That’s the difference. Sheree cared. Jill cared. Even Alexis who quit and then came back cared. And they took her back. Make no mistake, maloof got her check. And don’t be shocked if somewhere down the line, if she gets her way, she’ll return. Lisa and Brandi can’t maintain the live forever!

    Last point (I sware and apologize!) you can rationalize it 8 ways to Sunday, Brandi lied. She overplayed the whole thing, and got what she wanted in the short term. It will be very interesting to see what happens long term. She’s a one trick pony and it will catch up to her eventually. Then me, Jill, kit and cartwheels will point and laugh. Kidding…Ill point and laugh and they’ll be nice. I AM a jersey girl….

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Don’t forget about RR…she won’t point-she’s nice too!!!

      • Exit4 says:

        Yes! My friend RR! So, down you think any of my ramblings made any sense? Minus the wacky auto corrects? I’m gearing up for rant 2. You’ll like it, I promise! 🙂

    • Cartwheels says:

      Thanks for including me in this group. I am honored .
      I will not point or laugh, it really saddens me the lengths that some of this women are willing to go to chase fame.
      Adrienne will not be missed by me as I never liked her and find her utterly boring to begin with, if she can take Faye and Bernie with her I will even dance.
      I just wonder if Brandi will stay around long enough to get her comeupance.

      • Exit4 says:

        I guess that remains to be seen! I’m no raving Adrienne fan, but I think in the end, Brandi will experience the pitfalls if the fame she loves so much.

        • Cartwheels says:

          I am not sure it will happen in this show, maybe in her real life and believe it or not, I don’t wish her anything bad, mainly because of her kids, but if there is such a thing as karma, she certainly has it coming in spades. Brandi just happen to be lucky and smart enough to have found two powerful allies in Lisa and Yolanda, I really believe that is wasn’t for that viewers would had wisen up to Brandi’s ways much sooner.

          I am actually happy that Adrienne quit/was fired because that means that for the next season we can finally move on from all this secrets.lawsuit,letter,blah, blah,blah that has make this season so heavy.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Hey…what about me….while I don’t HATE Brandi…I have also been saying that IMO this season has brought to light the shady side of her (and Lisa) for that matter. 😀

      • Cartwheels says:

        I agree about the shady side of Brandi and now that I have seen what she really is capable of , I am starting to think more and more that there is a very strong possibility that Camille and Adrienne were right all along and that there was never a gang up meeting. Adrienne invited Brandi to a simple lunch, the gang up meeting was a product of Brandi fertile imagination (we will never know because Brandi didn’t go or anybody else for that matter) , production driven (they made her wait for hours and who knows what they were telling her to pump her up) and opportunism (perfect opportunity to become Lisa’s champion) , at this point I am questioning everything she ever said.

        As far as Lisa goes, I am still in mourning, while I do not hate any of these women, I do have my favorites and for two seasons Lisa was that for me, the epitome of class, elegance, sophistication, beauty and brains; is my own fault because I put her in a whole different category than the rest and to find out that she is just like any of them is not pretty.
        I never really liked Yolanda and found her ubber arrogant and presuntuous but I really felt hook and sink for Lisa’s charm.

        I was trying to blame Brandi for Lisa’s awful behaviors and words this season, but I can’t longer do that, Lisa has shown me a side of her that is ugly, petty, vindictive, she has shown me that she doesn’t want real friends, just minions that are willing to do her biding and speak on her behalf so she doesn’t have to and can continue looking great.
        I do not think that Brandi is Lisa’s mouthpiece but if they are as close friends as we are made to believe, then there is no way that Lisa didn’t know about all this sham, not only did she allow it, she sponsor it, she defended Brandi’s nonsense (talking about how awful it was that Adrienne was suing her, and talking about the lawyer fees) and not for a second do I think that is because Lisa was made to believe, Lisa is a business person, the first thing she would have done was asked for the lawsuit documents, maybe even help with her lawyers, but all along she has known that there was no lawsuit (and for 5 episodes she had helped Brandi to perpetuate the lie) and then the same with the C&D letter.

        I guess it is sad to realize that these characters will do anything to further their agenda, Brandi agrees to humilliate herself by speaking to her ex-husband’s lover and give a good start to Lisa’s new spin off and in return Lisa provides Brandi with the protection of her good image.
        No wonder nobody had confronted Brandi with some simple truths, they know Brandi fights dirty was will dig all kind of secrets to later used them as leverage and weapons, the only one who was brave enough to confront Brandi with simple facts that couldn’t be refute was Camille and even then she was called a liar, and I think she did it just because she had decided that the show was not for her and she was quitting anyway. It is sad when the castmates tiptoe around you and can’t tell you anything about your horrible behavior because they are scare of the repercusions.

    Here’s a cute interview with Lisa and Gleb about DWTS.
    I give her credit. One thing she can never be accused of is being a slacker or lazy.

    She also mentions she is working on a new restaurant.

      Did you see her web commercial? It’s for I can’t believe it’s not butter. She is not lazy!!

    Watching the Don on WWH.
    Anyone else? I love Drunk Uncle

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I’m watching…I can’t help myself!!

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        Caroline looks dreadful-usually the HWs glam up for WWHL but she did not!! A jean jacket and the lifeless hair? Really?

        • chismosa says:

          She’s got this flat hair going for so long I don’t care for it.
          It’s redder now

          She’s so annoying. Ughhhh!

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            She is annoying-a real know-it-all. She thinks she is an expert on everything concerning family and yet her family is a mess!! She really skirted that cheatin’ Al question!!

            • chismosa says:

              I think she came out in FRONT of that, very smart. Instead of rumors of this “Jill” being thrown in her face she INSTEAD says “well IF it happened”- I think it’s actually a brilliant move.
              Still hate her. 😦

        • Laineylainey says:

          You know…I think she’s better pulling a casual look. She kinda looks like a fancy red rooster when she gussies up. IMHO,

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            I think I agree-when she gussies up it looks wrong-like she is trying to hard or something!

    • Laineylainey says:

      Oooops I hadn’t seen that you started a Mama Manzooon thread. Sawry!

  55. nyc mama says:

    To change the subject a bit for anyone who watches Mob Wives. I really didn’t t want to get sucked in but I admit I did (hangs head in shame) because I grew up in Brooklyn and went to school with some of the family members of the players. ,

    A friend sent this to me today. This goes under the category of What Are They Thinking?

    Renee is claiming she came up with the name for her new shoe line Mob Candy because it “just came to her”.The problem is it came to her after she posed for the cover of the magazine titled
    ….drumroll…

    …..wait for it….

    Mob Candy.

      I’m my God how dumb!!

      • nyc mama says:

        But…but…but…Jill, it just came to her. Out of no where. 😉

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          The stupidity of people-it amazes me. And I’m cynical!! I still find it shocking when people are just dumb!!

    • chismosa says:

      I thought I heard that name before too! I still think she should do some hooves since she has been a stylist for years. She’s got good ideas

      Did you know Carla!? Isn’t she from Brooklyn? HATE her. Lol

      • nyc mama says:

        No not Carla. I don’t know her or her family and never heard her name until the show. She doesn’t bother me, I can’t stand Ramona and I don’t know why but I love Drita, especially the new improved Drita, and like everyone Big Ang.

        Most of their families, as in blood line families, lived in Brooklyn before they moved to Staten Island and I didn’t know their family business when I did. I was young — we went to school together.

        I thought the shoes they showed from her line were awful. Too ornate and gaudy for my taste but I bet they sell.

        • chismosa says:

          Oh I personally hated the shoes for myself but I think they WOULD sell. Haha

          Yeah I can’t stand Drita or Carla. Love right now is what Drita was seasons ago when everyone just fell in live with Drita! Blech
          I like Love and I like any of them that truly are “mob”. Not just petty thieves and lame crimes. RICO all the way lol

          Oh well thought maybe you knew the black haired one from Brooklyn.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Speaking of which…IMO all those shoes were so fn ugly and the only hope of them selling is if they come in men’s sizes…because I think only a drag queen could pull them off.

  56. Laineylainey says:

    Watching mama Manzoon on wwhl. Andy is really trying to sell that book. She is being so bubbly and fun…NOTHING like the woman on the show. I don’t trust this.

      Can’t stand the Don

      Did everyone see the picture of Vicki from the OC on the lineup for next week? She looked like Rita Wilson !

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Not to mention that she feels bad about calling Danielle a clown!! Whatever!!

      • Laineylainey says:

        Did ou catch when she added: “it’s something I had to do!” Completely negates your supposed regret, don.

        • chismosa says:

          Ooh I missed that. That she “had” to do it. Have to see if I can rewind

          Lainey I’m sorry if you’re going through things, saw Nancy’s post below

          • Laineylainey says:

            No doll…it’s all good. Laineygirl had a mtg today..prayer warriors went into action. It went well. So humbled and thankful.

        Hi Jill,
        I bet she only said that because she knows that Danielle is coming back.
        So transparent.

    How many times did he say “buy this book!” They don’t even try to be subtle aout how STUPID teythink wevall are. He never, ever, ever, ever asked/ordered the viewers to buy Tre’s books. He even treated her disdainfully when she gave him one of her beverages,…the fabellini? He rolled his eyes and ridiculed her.

    • chismosa says:

      You know Lainey you’ve got me thinking, maybe Bravo is getting direct profits off this book? Different from past HWs stuff ?

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        He was selling that book like his life depended on it…he might have pushed it more than his own book…NAH!!!!!

    • Laineylainey says:

      I am laughing (not hard) at how funny it is that when I was trying to make the point that …by golly, I ‘m not stupid, Andy!….I made a ton of typos. Irony. Love it. It’s like raaaaaaain….

    I stand by that Eva Longoria would be perfect to play Jodi Arias

    Why does she wear 15lbs of eye makeup all the time! She and Carrie Underwood need such makeunders

      She’s a Texas girl…so I love her and her over made-up raccoon eyes!!!!!!

      • Nancy says:

        Lainey,
        I’m not sure if this could help your daughter or not but working at The Hollywood Bowl in
        the summer gave me lot’s of opportunities in the music business. It might help her as
        people talk.
