Let’s Chat – Real Housewives of Orange County Premiere and Beverly Hills Reunion

Here we go.   Stars99 will be blogging this one for us, and she’ll be bringing the snark.  Johanna (our new blogger for It’s a Brad Brad World) will be blogging the blogs.  We figure snark will be the only way to get through Season Eight of the Original Housewives series.

After Orange County we’ll have the second hour of the Beverly Hills Reunion.  I believe Paul Nassif taped a segment for the show.  It won’t be with any of the others – he was out of town when they filmed the main reunion.

As a preview for OC ….

Real Housewives of Orange County

Season 8 Premier:  Monday, April 1st at 8:00 PM

All information, descriptions and photos herein have been taken directly and in their entirety from www.bravotv.com.


Bravo’s original series that started the hit franchise, The Real Housewives of Orange County, returns for season eight on Monday, April 1 at 8pm ET/PT. Vicki Gunvalson, Tamra Barney, Gretchen Rossi, Alexis Bellino and Heather Dubrow are joined by fresh-faced, level headed and surprisingly direct OC heiress Lydia McLaughlin. Reeling from the repercussions of last season’s epic clashes, the series once again ventures behind the gates for a scandalous look at the loves and lives unfolding inside one of Southern California’s wealthiest communities.

Vicki Gunvalson finds herself on a roller coaster of emotions, celebrating the highs of being a new grandmother to Briana’s new baby boy, while struggling to make her controversial relationship with Brooks survive. Her “southern beau” is once again the center of scrutiny and causes rifts among Vicki, her family and friends.

Tamra Barney’s life was paradise at the end of last season, as Eddie proposed on the beaches of Bora Bora. But reality starts to sink in when the couple moves in and struggles to merge their separate lives. Between the challenges of trying to open their fitness studio and the stress of trying to plan a wedding, their bumpy road is made even worse by the fact that the more Tamra pushes to set a wedding date, the harder Eddie pushes back.

Wedding bells and babies are on Gretchen Rossi’s mind. With her boyfriend, Slade, landing a job as a radio DJ, the path is paved for Gretchen to take the next big steps in her life. But starting a family isn’t as easy as she had hoped.

Heather Dubrow’s life as a stay-at-home mother takes a sharp turn as offers for acting roles on two popular sitcoms roll in. Although she’s thrilled to be acting once again, trouble comes from the most unexpected source, her husband, Terry, when what should be a dream opportunity turns into the biggest challenge their marriage has faced.

Alexis Bellino is once again the center of controversy between the ladies. Feeling bullied and betrayed, Alexis turns to Vicki for comfort and friendship. But it’s new Housewife, Lydia, who appeals to Alexis’ faith in an effort to achieve forgiveness – with surprising and mixed results.

Newest Housewife Lydia McLaughlin joins the cast this season, and while she comes from a wealthy family and admits to living a privileged life, she is anything but reserved. She, along with her husband, Doug, owns and operates a high-end magazine that highlights the glamorous life of Southern California. Being a devout Christian, she has much in common with Alexis and lends a hand of support when the ladies turn on her yet again.

After leaving the show four seasons ago, original Housewife Lauri Peterson makes a surprising return, rekindling her friendship with some of the ladies and revealing shocking information that will rock one of the wives’ worlds.

Meet this Season’s housewives:

AlexisAlexis Bellino – Having joined the cast during Season 5, Alexis Bellino is a stay-at-home Christian mom who unabashedly lives life on her own terms. Originally from the small town of Hannibal, Missouri, Alexis recently purchased a new home with her husband, Jim. Alexis and Jim have three young children — 7-year-old James and 5-year-old twins, Melania and Mackenna. While Alexis is still trying to successfully run her dress line business, she has quit her news correspondent job to focus her attention on her family and marriage, as well as to support her husband’s burgeoning trampoline park empire.



Gretchen Rossi joined the cast of The Real Housewives of Orange County in Season 4. The budding entrepreneur grew up in La Crescenta, California, and attended Baylor University in Dallas, Texas, where she studied Psychology. After struggling with their relationship last year, Gretchen and her long-time boyfriend, Slade, are stronger than ever. With her signature Gretchen Christine line taking off, Slade has started to veer into a new profession, hosting a local radio show. Simultaneously, he and Gretchen are focused on the well-being of his son, while also contemplating the future of starting their own family together.


HeatherHeather Dubrow, a former actress and now stay-at-home mother of four, joined The Real Housewives of Orange County in Season 7. Married to prominent Newport Beach plastic surgeon, Terry, they have four children — 9-year-old twins Nicholas and Maximillia, 6-year-old Katarina, and 2-year-old, Collette. After toying with the idea of returning to her acting roots and rediscovering her creative side, Heather is ready to make a return to the small screen, landing guest roles on current hit sitcoms. As much as Heather loves being a mother, she struggles to find the balance between work and family, especially when Terry falls short in his duties as dad.


LydiaLydia McLaughlin joins The Real Housewives of Orange County in Season 8. Lydia is the granddaughter of Canadian media mogul Geoff Stirling, founder of NTV, the first 24-hour television station in Canada. Lydia and her husband Doug live in Dana Point with their two sons, 4-year-old Stirling and 2-year-old Maverick. This young, kooky mother always puts her family and faith first, but in her spare time, she and her husband channel her grandfather’s entrepreneurial spirit by running a magazine highlighting the glamorous life in Southern California.



TamraTamra Barney, a Southern California native from Glendora, CA, joined The Real Housewives of Orange County in Season 3. She has four children — 26-year-old Ryan, and three children with her ex-husband. Since getting engaged to Eddie last year, Tamra and her children have moved in and taken over Eddie’s bachelor pad, but not without some tension. While Tamra hopes to get married sooner than later, Eddie has other ideas, which leads Tamra to wonder if he wants to marry her at all.



VickiThe “OG of the OC,” Vicki Gunvalson is the original housewife and has appeared on The Real Housewives of Orange County since Season 1. Born and raised in the Chicago area, Vicki currently lives in the gated community of Coto de Caza with daughter Briana and son-in-law Ryan, and their new baby boy, Troy. Currently in the final stages of her divorce from Donn, Vicki is completely revamping her life, starting with a complete makeover of her house and a little “tweaking” to her face thanks to plastic surgery. She’s also “taking a break” from her relationship with Brooks, primarily due to the scrutiny and disapproval she receives from her family and friends.

    PrincessP what is your gravatar? 🙂

    • princesspindy says:

      It is Brooks!!! I just didn’t want anyone to forget what a catch he is….. Vicki bought him new teeth….allegedly….

  2. princesspindy says:

    I am going out to dinner tonight with a girlfriend. We are meeting early so hopefully I will be back at least in time for BH…..I will watch OC cuz I promised Stars but that is the ONLY reason, lol.

  3. princesspindy says:

    I am bringing this over from the other blog <===== cuz it is that good!!!

    This is the best reaction ever, I know NONE of you would EVER react like this EVER!!!

  4. Powell says:

    Pulezzee. If Brooks was a good man no amount of scrutiny from her family & friends would matter. Brooks is a creep and a user and Vicki knows it.

  5. VV says:

    Beverly Hills Darling Shi Shi Shi Shi!

  6. VV says:

    Oh Wait? WTH?!!! When is RHOBH Finale Pt 2?

  7. Powell says:

    The lower part of Vicki’s face isn’t moving.

    • $25,000 says:

      She actually looks pretty good but there’s something kind of off about her mouth and her face on either side of her mouth. I’m not sure what it is, but it doesn’t look quite right to me. I think her nostrils are less noticible and that is probably what she most wanted to change.

      • Orson says:

        I think tonight’s episode was taped not long after V had the surgery. There’s usually swelling after this kind of surgery that can take several weeks to go down.

  8. Powell says:

    I thought Jews don’t eat lobster – shellfish.

  9. Nancy says:

    ANIMAL ABUSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Nancy says:

    Could you imagine having Vicki in the delivery room with you?

  11. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    I don’t think they bullied her-I think they are just bitches!!!

  12. Nancy says:


  13. BB says:

    I don’t need for Tamra and Gretchen to define what bullying is for me. I’m so bored already and this is not even half over.

  14. obx1 says:

    Is Gretchen really trying to figure out a Keurig? What a moron!

  15. NJBev says:

    What an idiot.

  16. EKB says:

    Why does Gretchen have an assistant?

  17. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    She is dumb…seriously!!!

  18. $25,000 says:

    I like Gretchen’s shorter hair. It’s still a little too “done” for me, but it’s a big improvement and much less porn starish.

  19. EKB says:

    These women throw around the word bully way too much.

  20. EKB says:

    “Tamra stole my best friend.” How old is Alexis?

  21. NJBev says:

    Are they building a mall next to Heathers house?

  22. Nancy says:

    I sure hope her kids know how to swim.

  23. BB says:

    I wonder if the women will appreciate the clambake or make fun of it. They are not know for their classiness or trying new things.

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

    Eddie looks like he is over Tamra…she seems like she would get on anyone’s nerves after a minute!!!

  25. TexasTart says:

    Trying to make my way to the TV….I forget to vote for Lisa on DWTS for watching her on Bravo. Does anyone know is the number to vote the same every week?

  26. Nancy says:

    Vicki’s pug needs to go on a diet. Their knee’s can’t take the weight.

  27. boston02127 says:

    Heather Dubrow reminds me of the jogger that found the body on some hidden jogging trail. (the body she really put there) She’s got those crazy eyes.

  28. Nancy says:

    Nasty “women”!

  29. EKB says:

    Didn’t Vicky say the same thing about her friendship with Jeana? Toxic seems to be Vicky’s go-to insult about her ex-friends.

  30. BB says:

    It sure is easy to push Heather’s buttons.

  31. BB says:

    Eddie didn’t put forth any effort to look nice for the occasion. He looks like the lawn guy.

  32. nyc mama says:

    Kyle, Kim, Taylor, Brandi and Mauricio are in the audience at DWTS tonight.

  33. Nancy says:

    It sounds like Vicki has a lisp now.

  34. BB says:

    I never realized how dumb Gretchen really is.

    • Nancy says:

      She doesn’t know how to make coffee!

    • TexasTart says:

      The clambake remark? I am late to this, will watch when.it replays…..or should I?! I have no investment in any of these women of the OC.

  35. EKB says:

    i wonder if the guards have tasers.

  36. NJBev says:

    I’ll say it again.
    Gretchan is an idiot-

  37. boston02127 says:

    Have these people never hear of a clambake? I’m no Rachael Ray but I could throw a clambake together in an hour.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      Maybe it’s more of an East Coast thing? When we have a clam bake we don’t set the table like that and I for sure wouldn’t wear white pants!!!

      • Powell says:

        I’ve never been to one but from what I’ve seen its usually on the beach or picnic tables and everything is dumped out so everyone can just join in.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I went to one when I lived in California. A party planner did it all,..and there were no tables…people sitting around fires in lawn chairs, wine, beer…and then they had a hula dancer perform for us. It was a grown man’s bday party. I wore white pants.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I would end up filthy if I wore white pants!!! …you comin’ for me Wig?? I didn’t send for you!!!

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Trash hooker, sit the hell down, in the chair…get up off of the damn sand and your pants will be fine. What am I gonna do witchoo …Give me strengf…(Kandi)

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Monkey in a wig….lookin’ a hot mess in those white pants at a clam bake!!

  38. BB says:

    Bring on the BH housewives stat! These OC women are so low rent.

  39. Nancy says:

    4 more minutes.

  40. BB says:

    That’s it?

  41. Nancy says:

    It’s going to be a long season.

  42. TexasTart says:

    New girl on the OC….uh I don’t know where.to.start.

  43. VV says:

    Beverly Hills Darling Shi Shi Shi Shi!!!

  44. boston02127 says:

    I’ve been on this blog since I was in HS. I don’t think I’ve ever used a swear word in any posts but tonight I have to break. OC woman (tv) are all low class pieces of shit.

  45. EKB says:

    What’s the over/under on the number of times Kyle cries during this hour?

  46. TexasTart says:

    Somehow I don’t think this is going to be very shi shi.shi

  47. VV says:


  48. EKB says:

    I can’t get past Kyle’s glitter eyeshadow.

  49. VV says:

    They were never comical to me. They annoyed the heck out of me! TG Charo is gone….and Dr TP too.

  50. VV says:

    True IT WAS GROSS!

  51. Nancy says:

    I’m going to vomit.

  52. VV says:


  53. boston02127 says:

    Do we have proof that Adrienne was born female?

  54. melthehound says:

    Adrienne is into kick boxing and all. No way did Paul hit her and get away with it.

    Even her pals are calling bullshit

  55. VV says:

    Who freaking cares about Adrienne. She’s freaking gone from the show. NEXXXXTTTT!!!’

  56. VV says:


  57. Nancy says:

    “Taylor” is so full of sh*t!!!!!

  58. melthehound says:

    Are they done with the Adrienne talk yet?

  59. Formerly Addicted to Bravo says:

    okay I still can’t take my eyes off Kim – she looks like she’s aged 25 years. She sounds like an old hag, and Kyle’s ticks are really on my last nerve – the hair touching the lip smack/roll whatever it is, the fake crying with the scratchy/squeaky voice is soooooo annoying

    • TexasTart says:

      It is hard to look at and listen to Kim. It only gets harder…could.they please retire her already?! We don’t care any more!

  60. Nancy says:

    Kim looks like she’s aged 40 years.

  61. Amalfi says:

    From the tail end of OC it appears that Pleather and what’s his name are Adrienne and Paul part deux….

  62. VV says:

    STFU KYLE!!!!

  63. melthehound says:

    That would be a no, Kim.

  64. VV says:

    The answer is NO Andy.

  65. melthehound says:

    A joking sense. STFU Kyle.

  66. JustDee says:

    Sick. To. Death. of the Dick sisters and their fake crying!

  67. Powell says:

    EKB can we count the flashback scenes when Kyle was crying? If so. I count 1 so far.

  68. Nancy says:

    They better not bring her back.

  69. boston02127 says:

    Kim is haunting.

  70. Amalfi says:

    Kim’s hairline seems to be receding.

  71. boston02127 says:

    Kim…………………… I do remember everything this year. OMG hahahha

  72. nyc mama says:

    Everything hurts Kim’s feelings. I’m tired of it.

  73. TexasTart says:


  74. Formerly Addicted to Bravo says:

    one of the things they teach in rehab is that you have to expect people to doubt you and you have to earn back their trust. She’s not even close to recovery

  75. VV says:


  76. Nancy says:

    What was on her pillow?

  77. windycitywondering2 says:

    STFU Kim

  78. melthehound says:

    More footage of the richards sisters shaking their fat fingers at people…… next.

  79. VV says:

    Did Kyle say Kim was drinking. I thought Kim said it was pills.

  80. Nancy says:

    I agree with Brandi!

  81. melthehound says:

    GASP! GASP! C’mon Kyle.. Let’s see the water…… Squeeze a few out Kyle….

  82. lillybee says:

    STFU Kim.

  83. VV says:

    Truth hurts……………

  84. Powell says:

    #2 crying.

  85. I have NO sympathy for Kim. With or without alcohol she’s a mean girl. She continues to pass blame like she is accusing Yolanda of. Kyle and Kim are both biotches.

  86. $25,000 says:

    That was a real low blow Brandi. Not cool at all!

    • I don’t know. I’ve thought the same thing as Brandi. I think Kyle likes the power it gives her over Kim.

      • Nancy says:


      • Formerly Addicted to Bravo says:

        Agree and the new dynamic where she doesn’t get to the long suffering martyr must feel bad for her too. Geez they all need a ton of therapy

      • mrspeabody says:

        I agree I don’t think Kyle wants their dynamics to change and if she succeeds it will, then what does Kyle do

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        I totally disagree. When Kim is under the influence…the only thing that has power over her is the bottle….and everyone else…including her children are at the bottom.

    • Rebecca says:

      But its how she FEEEELSSS!

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I think it was a really, really low blow. I also don;t think it’s true.

  87. windycitywondering2 says:

    Kim is so into attacking everyone. And when she isn’t attacking she is doing that almost going to cry poor me victimy little girl thing. Come on Andy – move this goat rodeo along already!

  88. Powell says:

    It does seem like if Kim fails Kyle can remain the sis that ghas it all together. That has the perfect life, husband & kids. That she’s the one Kim will have to rely on.

  89. melthehound says:

    I’ll say it again:

    GASP! GASP! C’mon Kyle.. Let’s see the water…… Squeeze a few out Kyle….

  90. TexasTart says:

    I am really pissed off that KIM is getting this much air time!!!

    Brandi.hit below the belt on saying Kyle wanting Kim to fail…I often thought it was just that Kyle expected she could fail…wbich is different….I doubt she has any evidence to.support that….it’s okay if that’s a feeling she has but wrong to make such a statement.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Brandi does not care about right or wrong.

    • Rebecca says:

      Kyle’s stupid little comments (or, “jokes” as she puts it) are as damaging to her show of support to her sister as Marissa’s stupid comments are to her husband.

  91. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    There is no way in hell that Brandi didnt say that to be mean…no way!! That was a F’ed up thing to say.

    • Nancy says:

      Addiction is a family disease and everyone plays a part. It’s complicated.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I know about addiction Nancy-my father got sober 16 & 1/2 years old-that means he was drunk for more than half of my life…I lived addiction.

      • Formerly Addicted to Bravo says:

        Agree and everyone is very invested in their roles in the drama of substance abuse so the pull to revert to old roles is very strong. They really need some serious help to redefine their relationship and stop the co dependence stuff that they keep reliving where Kim is helpless and Kyle is over functioning. Make it stop Bravo

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          Knowing that this is not Kim’s first attempt at sobriety I’m sure Kyle has some doubts-however Brandi saying that was to cause harm.

        • Nancy says:

          I’m so glad you get that.

          • Lisa Renee says:

            Nancy, help a girl out. The reason I am so twisted with Kim is because when my daughter was born, I was clean over 2 years. When my mom leaned in to hug me good bye she whispered in my ear “I’m watching you”. Did I get indignant, self righteous, nasty or defensive. No, because I was grateful they were even speaking to me & my life was tight. I was a junkie & my mom let me know she would snatch my child up before I could say WTF with a small whisper. She wanted a tox screen on her grandbaby & I didn’t blink twice, just had it done. I was contrite & determined no matter how long it took. At some point it became a non issue. I didn’t need validation. I acted like a functioning member of society & my family treated me accordingly. It is Kim’s entire how dare you question my sobriety that tells me she is far from done. She needs to do her penance, get humble & have a seat until she is trustworthy, no matter how long it takes. Lisa

            • Nancy says:

              ITA! I was talking about Kyle in my post. She needs Al Alnon badly. It drives me crazy that Kyle knows so little about the disease. So glad to hear that you are doing well.
              I’m also a friend of Bill W’s. 🙂

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              I am so happy to read you are doing well Lisa, I think all of us are very proud of you….and if Brandi says otherwise…I will punch her in the throat 🙂

              • NJBev says:

      • mrspeabody says:

        I wonder if Kyle is doing any theraphy with Kim.

  92. Nancy says:


  93. VV says:

    We are sick and tired of Kim talks. ANDY WTF??? First Charo and now Kim??!!! Seriously Andy?! WTF CARES ABOUT THEM!!!!!!!

  94. Formerly Addicted to Bravo says:

    we are begging Bravo to take Kim off this show and let her heal in private – WE DON’T WANT TO SEE THIS

  95. Powell says:

    Touno what not liking? Bravo is replaying a few minutes of when they come back from commercial. They taped 1000 hrs. They have enough tape.

  96. melthehound says:

    Queen Of Deflection….

  97. VV says:

    ZZZzzzzzzz ZZZZZzzzzz ZZZZZzzzz

  98. boston02127 says:

    It’s ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL about the alocohlic. Kim: Poor me, Poor me, Poor me, Poor me. Boo freakin hoo….

  99. VV says:


  100. melthehound says:

    Kill me now.

  101. TexasTart says:

    Really, it’s your last shot Kim?! Really I hope it is your LAST shot.on RHOBH! Arrrggh!!!!

  102. If Kim really believes she won’t make it if she fails, and says she almost didn’t this last time, then why did she only stay in rehab for less than thirty days? This woman NEEDS SERIOUS HELP !

  103. boston02127 says:

    Poor Yollie, only one horse for her kid. Lifes tough.

  104. melthehound says:

    What a crapfest

  105. VV says:

    Why is Moe even on that coach! He makes me want to VOMIT!!!!!!

  106. TexasTart says:

    Taylor doesn’t even have enough net worth to apply for the OC cast. How the hell did she ever get on BH?! Must have been her grifter ways.

  107. Amalfi says:

    I think on or off camera, Kim will either need to make a full recovery or she has predicted her own fate when she says she doesn’t think she can make it.

    There is such possibility as “half way” with her, and that is all she has been attempting. Get it together Kim, or the price is going to be way too high.

  108. VV says:

    We are half way there, this one is for Lisa Rene and LA Debra!


  109. Powell says:

    I found Yolanda’s refrig on Twitter. 😀

  110. boston02127 says:

    Kyle the drama queen needs to pawn her crown and use the money for extensive psychotic counseling. And bring her wack sister with her.

  111. melthehound says:

    Are all of you placing your orders for the shirts?

  112. Powell says:

    Ooh Andy threw Adrienne’s t-shirt behind the chair. Hehehe.

  113. cusi77 says:

    First time I like Andy doing something! Adrienne T-Shirt… the heck with it!!!! Haa!

  114. Not an Andy fan but when he tossed away Adrienne’s’ Tee-shirt I died laughing!

  115. JustDee says:

    Anyone else think Kyle’s tagline this year – “This is MY Town” is a direct dig at Lisa?

  116. boston02127 says:

    I don’t think Kim has been sober long enough to realize “Drink Canada Dry” is a slogan and not a personal challenge.

    It’s amazing 🙄

  121. Nancy says:

    (((Dr Paul)))

  122. windycitywondering2 says:

    Why does Brandi have to sit next to Morris? She should be next to Lisa and Ken!

  123. Amalfi says:

    Kyle is so possessive of Mauricio… even the way she holds his hand like she owns him. Dudes don’t dig that no matter what they pretend to your face.

    Seriously, Kyle…

  124. VV says:


  125. Nancy says:

    He’s so transparent.

  126. cusi77 says:

    Told ya’! Morrrrrrrrrrrrrrrizzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz is making bizzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

  127. VV says:

    Ooopsie….looks like Moe had a skip of the tongue.

  128. melthehound says:

    It is confirmed. HE sold their house. Commission check will buy Kyle’s next car.

  129. cusi77 says:

    Brandi was never sued!!!!

  130. Ken is such a gentleman.

  131. Amalfi says:

    Mauricio doesn’t like to “get caught” so he keeps his mouth shut.

    I bet. lol…. That might explain Kyle’s possessiveness, then.

  132. VV says:

      Folks, I’d like to sing a song about the American Dream
      About me, about you, the way our American hearts beat
      Down in the bottom of our chests, about the special feeling
      We get in the cockles of our hearts, maybe below the cockles
      Maybe in the sub-cockle area, maybe in the liver
      Maybe in the kidneys, maybe even in the colon, we don’t know
      I’m just a regular Joe with a regular job
      I’m your average white suburbanite slob
      I like football and porno and books about war
      I’ve got an average house with a nice hardwood floor
      My wife and my job, my kids and my car
      My feet on my table and a Cuban cigar
      But sometimes that just ain’t enough
      To keep a man like me interested (Oh no)
      No way (Uh-uh)
      No, I’ve gotta go out and have fun
      At someone else’s expense (Oh yeah)
      Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

  133. Nancy says:

    And all of his girlfriends.

  134. windycitywondering2 says:

    Why does Kyle have to constantly remind everyone that Mauricio is her husband? Insecurity?

    • cusi77 says:

      Kyle is a very insecure woman and I don’t blame her… with that Mom and Sister… IMO. She is strong. I don’t like many things about Kyle, but I have to give her kudos for surviving Kim and Momz.

  135. VV says:

    Nobody like Mauricio Kyle That comment is so season 1 (when he had a few fans).

  136. melthehound says:

    Just like we don’t know the real Fayker, we don’t know the real Morris… Ummmm, Okay Kyle.,

  137. Formerly Addicted to Bravo says:

    too little too late maury

  138. melthehound says:

    Brandi must be in the market for a house.

  139. Kyle and Maurickio are trying to rewrite history. He was a jerk and not trying to give advice. He was aggressive and a bully. He didn’t try to mediate he intimidated.

  140. VV says:


  141. melthehound says:

    Andy called him out on that….. 😀

  142. lillybee says:

    STFU Morris.

  143. Amalfi says:

    Lisa is totally calling Maurcio out. hahahah….

  144. melthehound says:

    Is Morris still friends with them?

  145. VV says:

    Mauricio is lying once again…. OMG GET OFF YOUR HIGH HORSE…

  146. VV says:

    You go Lisa!!!

  151. Nancy says:

    “Get through the season sober” Are you kidding me?

  152. Powell says:

    What the hell kind of kraft salad dressing commercial was that? It was like T doing the table flip & Brandi saying STFU? Strange.

  153. He is so lying. He jumped all over Kyle season one when Camille threatened to drop him because of Kyle. He forced Kyle to make nice with Camille to save his business associations with them. He encouraged Kyle to socialize with Camille and play nice to keep business.

  159. nyc mama says:

    I just realized Taylor has said relatively nothing all reunion.

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      I really wish she would have told Kyle that she would have appreciated a mom to mom call about Kennedy being with Kyle instead of being made out to be a bad mother.

    • TexasTart says:

      That was really nice that Taylor had nothing to talk about, but considering what we had to endure with KIM, that was a steep price to pay.

  160. Nancy says:

    I remember Amsterdam. 🙂

  161. Powell says:

    A few good moments. Kyle cried 3 times. I’m glad Paul said Brandi had nothing to do w/the divorce. The End. But lost footage is coming too right?

  162. TexasTart says:

    Andy what makes you think Kim made it through the season sober?! Because she said so.

    • Nancy says:

      In Kim’s defense I truly believe she doesn’t understand that taking mind altering drugs
      means you’re not sober.

      • Orson says:

        I agree, Nancy. I don’t think she’s in a 12 step program.

        • Nancy says:

          I’m pretty sure she’s not and I don’t think Kyle is in Al Anon either. It’s a shame.

      • TexasTart says:

        I’ll give you that, Nancy, but don’t be defending KIM again 😉

      • nyc mama says:

        I agree. I can’t help but wonder why she had these drugs in her home to “confuse” – her exuse for her behavior in Paris.. She has sisters, children, nephews, nieces, BIL’s, an assistant, a houseboy and life coach if not others who could have/should have cleaned out these drugs while she was away so they wouldn;’t be there for her to “confuse”.

        • Catseye says:

          Yes. And I recall reading recently that she made a fool of herself at a family member’s birthday party and blamed it on “mixing up her pills” again. She looks ridiculous using that excuse over and over.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            How come only Kim gets to mix up her pills??? I want to act the fool and then blame it on the mixed up pills.

  163. windycitywondering2 says:

    I want to thank all of you for doing this season with me. We have gotten to know each other better and you are all strong peeps and I love you all. (insert double cheek kiss with maauuh sounds.)

    Same to you.

  165. BB says:

    Note to all: The Kraft Zesty Italian guy has imitated many of the houswives. He’s flipped a table, done the splits, and yelled that he only drinks Pinot (Teresa, Kyle and Ramona). Those are the only ones I caught tonight.

  166. Exit4 says:

    I’m not watching, I’ll catch it later-but I have to crack up-
    I am trying to see what’s happening and I gather Kyle needs to STFU!?

    There was ann old site I used to look at realitytvworld-don’t know if it exists anymore. They used to have east and west coast threads so you could talk about the shows with no spoilers and the non watchers could follow. As I was trying to decifer what’s happening-that popped in my head.

    I already saw in previews what Brandi said to Kyle about Kim-and it is mean. Never pretend you know someone’s family dynamic when you don’t live it. I remember when Kyle outed Kim in season one and it occurs to me that in that fight Kyle called her an alcoholic-I’m sure that’s not the first time she said itin anger! And drunkenness herself. Of course Kyle being Kyle, she followed it up with “everybody knows now”! I wonder if she didn’t try to humiliate her publicly into rehab?

    Child stars either turn into Lindsey Lohan or Jodie foster. Kim blazed a road for the former.

  167. L.A. Chica says:

    Sorry to interrupt but I just had to jump in here to say I am in awe of Heidi Klum’s physical strength.

    I just saw a report about her family trip in Hawaii. Her oldest son, 7 years old, got caught in a rip tide. Her two nannies both went into the ocean to save him but got into trouble themselves. Here comes Heidi to the rescue: she not only jumped in and saved her son, but after getting him safely to shore she went back in and rescued one of the nannies. Her (ex?) body guard, who was with the family, rescued the other nanny but collapsed from exhaustion once they were both back on the beach. Meanwhile, Heidi is pictured bringing water to him.

    That’s it. Starting tomorrow I am working out and getting into shape. Seeing the series of photos of Heidi in action and her incredible stamina is very inspiring. Plus, if in the future there were to ever be a situation where someone needs assistance I want to be able to help!

    You may now return to your regularly scheduled RHBH reunion comments. 🙂

    • LaineyLainey says:

      She IS DA WOMAN!!!

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      OMG-what a scary story!! Thank God for her strength and that mother power!!!

    • Exit4 says:

      Being a beach girl-I will tell you all as a public service….if you get caught in a rip, let it take you out (stay CALM and if there are guards try to wave) when it stops pulling, and it will, swim out if it parallel to the shore and then come in. Whatever you do, don’t fight a rip or try to swim out of it. Save your strength.

      Always swim at a guarded beach! They know when there are ripa and will see you out there. Look out for jetties (a haven for rips) and if you get to know the beach you can actually spot them-the water will churn and be “messy ” where as the rest of the surf will look normal.

      You can make fun if me if you want, but trust me, these tips will help you! And my job today is done! 🙂

      • LaineyLainey says:

        I will pass this along to my daughter who is in California.

        • Exit4 says:

          I can’t even tell you how many people get in trouble in the water with rips. The instinct is to fight and thats what actually gets you in trouble. They don’t go out very far, they’re almost like pockets. But that’s what scares people, that they’re getting sucked into the ocean. But it’s maybe 20-30 extra feet, very do able for even a moderate swimmer, but when you expend your energy fighting-you’re in trouble! In jersey we have a flag system and you know when the rios are bad because the flags are red.

          • I Need A Life! says:

            Years ago, I was in Cancun, Mexico with my daughter, who was around 7 years old. We were walking on the beach. Picture us walking hand in hand. Life is perfect. Out of nowhere, a man’s body literally rolls up to shore out of the water a few feet from us. I won’t describe. Before we could even understand what was happening, a group of people were on top of him, trying to revive him. He was a doctor who had been vacationing with his family. He got caught up in a rip tide. I turned to my daughter and we both silently kept walking. It was too much to take in.

  168. nyc mama says:

    Brandi and Yolanda’s blogs are up and Brandi clarifies what she meant.

      I don’t know because I have not voted om DWTS before…but I have voted.a dozen times, hopefully multiple votes count.

    • mrspeabody says:

      You usually can get through regardless of who you vote for, at least that has been my experience in the past.

  171. Cartwheels says:

    This reunion was comical.
    So Mauricio has to apologized because telling Brandi to call Adrienne and apologize to avoid the lawsuit was rude , I wonder what would Mauricio said if he knew back then what he knows now that there was never such lawsuit and that Brandi was crying about it just for dramatic effects.
    Brandi gets to talk about manners and what is appropriate behavior? I LMAO, maybe using the F word and telling everybody to FO or STFU is also consider rude but what would Brandi know about manners?
    Brandi can’t help herself and continues with her soap opera BS about the lawsuit, after all why not? it has worked for her the whole season, she is still using the lawsuit to explain her behavior. I wish Camille would had been there and being the only who knew she wasn’t coming back next season, she would have had the presence of mind to ask the only simple question that needed to be asked, “Brandi what lawsuit are you talking about? , or “Brandi you were never threated with a lawsuit, you just said it yourself, it was your friend , not you”, all these ladies seem to tip toe around the issue and are scared to death that if anybody says anything remotely around this issue , it would bring Brandi’s fury on them and by proxy Bravo’s.
    I honestly hope that next season if Kim ever returns, that she will be sober and on point, she seemed to be the only one who has the guts to call Brandi off, even Kyle is a wimp, I would had never accepted an apology from Brandi for such a hateful comment,
    Brandi needs to understand that you just don’t go through life saying every thought that pops in your mind. How would Brandi like is one of these ladies says, “Brandi, Eddie left you four years ago , it is time to move on, stop playing the victim” or maybe “Brandi, you don’t get to give other women marriage advice as your treesomes and your hall passes obviously didn’t stop your husband from cheating on you”, just because it is truth doesn’t mean you have to say it.

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      The best part about it is that she did apologize to Adrienne-thru email-not much different than a phone call like Mauricio suggested. But I love how she tries to act like she is some poor timid woman who got picked on by big bad Mauricio. He never raised his voice or even attempted to move-but she screamed at him to go fu*k himself and to shut the fu*k up. She didnt seem so timid then did she? The victim act needs to end- she needs to woman the F up!!!

      • Cartwheels says:

        Wasn’t it funny, it went from a verbal conversation to “he was yelling at me across the restaurant”, Boy oh boy Brandi does have an art to embellish everything.
        Brandi plays the victim when it is convenient to her. i am happy that after all the speculation Paul finally had the guts to say that what Brandi did was wrong, no buts or ifs about it, just plain wrong.

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          I’ve said this before and maybe it’s just the punk in me…but equal rights..equal fights.

          Maurico was in NO way aggressive or Threatening to Brandi. He disagreed with her….and she is acting like it was an assault..meanwhile she she is SCREAMING and SWEARING.

    • melthehound says:

      A lot of us (or maybe just me) have thought the same thing when it comes to Kyle and Kim. On the show, I’ve never felt that Kyle was behind Kim as she says she is. I don’t say that just from watching the reunion, I say it from watching 3 seasons. I think if Kyle were really behind Kim getting clean (that is, in full support) she would do what ever it takes to guide Kim Away from ‘reality’ TV and toward actual help.

      • nyc mama says:

        I agree. I have never found her supportive and we have all constantly seen her put her down, deservedly or not. She is not who I would want behind me if I had demons like Kim. .

        • Nancy says:

          Kyle will never forgive Kim for being the “star” in the family. I think that’s behind a lot of her anger.

      • JustDee says:

        Remember Ojai was supposed to be a “Sobriety Celebration” for Kim. Kyle could have talked to the others ahead of time and asked to cool it on the drinking. Instead she jumped right in to help make it a drunken free-for-all. Way to celebrate your sisters sobriety Kyle!

        • melthehound says:

          I didn’t see that episode but okay.. Any excuse to get drunk and act like a fool.. Bravo 101.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Thank You….

    So glad Maloof got the hoof in the ass she so richly deserved.

  173. Nancy says:

    Yolanda’s blog is a good one. I can’t wait to read the sisters.

    • I Need A Life! says:

      Nancy, I thought Yolanda’s blog was really gracious. I have not been a fan. However, this blog was written with heartfelt care and compassion. I admire how she doesn’t fault Mauricio for schmoozing. It’s part of the game. I do agree with Lainey. Her, “honey,” is way too condescending. I couldn’t get past it. Very superior attitude. Asking Kim if she remembered was a low blow. But the blog was very kind.

  174. AZGirl says:

    Just got in from hike in Sedona and a stop by Flag to visit Second Born with my brother. YOUSE GUYS ARE THE BEST! Posts from the reunion Part 2 had me laughing! All of you are so funny. Thank you for keeping me up to date on the Reunion Part 2 of BH.

    Nite nite

  176. Orson says:

    If nothing else, Andy seems to be able to learn from past mistakes. He seemed pretty blasé about having JZ on WWHL until J’s friend released her video. I have 20 internets that say Charo will NEVER be invited to be on WWHL.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      Really? the other day I totally thought Andy would love to have Adrienne on for a WWHL sit down…he’ll do anything for ratings

  177. djprincessc says:

    Isnt it funny how Tamara said that Eddie is controlling?!?!? Excuse me? Didn’t she say that she loved him in the beginning bc he was the opposite from Simon and was NOT controlling?!?! How things change!

  178. realhousewifeva says:

    I didn’t watch any of the shows tonight but I saw the clip of what Brandi said to Kyle. I don’t know if Kyle wants to see Kim fail, per se, but I DO know that in the past couple seasons I always felt that Kyle made it a point to make sure it was obvious to everyone that Kim had issues.
    Whenever they are on vacation, Kyle makes a BIG production of calling Kim to ask where she is or making sure the cameras follow her, always with another housewife, to Kim’s room. If you care so much about your sister, why not make those calls or trips to her room BEFORE you meet all the other ladies? BEFORE the cameras are back on you? What if she went to Kim’s room and Kim was surrounded by bottles and pills and the cameras caught it all? Clearly that is always a possibility.
    When I rewatched Season 1 last week, Kyle made it a point all season to let the ladies know about Kim’s drinking and I believe she wanted to reveal that Kim was an alcoholic on camera. Finale night was her last chance and she made sure she screamed it loud and clear. Now, I don’t know why she does this….but I have noticed it. It’s not just the parts about her worrying about Kim failing or not trusting Kim, I expect that. It’s the parts where she makes sure to shine a bright light on the times that Kim does fail that always caused me to be a little weary. Why would you want to constantly showcase your sister in a negative light on national TV?

    I think people are so funny when they get all huffy and puffy about “sisters” and others “shouldn’t go there”. Listen, I have 4 sisters and I love them dearly, but I will tell you matter of factly (and my husband has noticed on his own) that one of my sisters would be happy to see me fail. Sad, but true. She probably would get all teary eyed and pearl clutchy if she was ever called out on it, because she’s good at that, but the fact is that she can’t handle my successes and will often put me down (in subtle ways) to others, so that my negative qualities (or what she wants to pretend are my negative qualities) will be more apparent than my good qualities. I could tell many stories. Just because people are blood related doesn’t mean they will always have a special bond or protect one another. If Kyle was such a great sister, hell if any of Kim’s family loved her as much as they pretend, then they would NOT continue to encourage her to do this show and embarrass herself this way. I certainly do believe that Kyle loves to see the contrast of her “perfect life” (handsome hubby, great looks, beautiful home, etc) against Kim’s (mixing chicken salad alone, need I say more?)

    And once again, if people don’t want certain things to be discussed (like the sister relationship) then DO NOT SHOWCASE IT ON A REALITY SHOW.

    • Nancy says:

      There is so much unresolved anger between them it’s palpable. I have always thought that Kyle resents Kim for being “the star” of the family.

    • melthehound says:

      if people don’t want certain things to be discussed then DO NOT SHOWCASE IT ON A REALITY SHOW.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        I agree that if you are on a reality show things will be discussed-but that’s no excuse for other cast mates to be bitches.

        • realhousewifeva says:

          If cast mates stop being bitchy, then they would all be fired. Show me a housewife on any franchise who was never bitchy (and is still on the show). Don’t we watch it for the drama? I love the friendship between Lisa, Brandi and Yolanda, but I wouldn’t wanna watch that every week! lol

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Not what I meant at all-yes the drama is sometimes fun but when it’s bitchy for the sake of just being a bitch-I don’t like that. There’s no fun in it-at least not for me. I don’t like people looking to hurt each other so blatantly.

          • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

            Oh and rh are you really not watching OC?? Is it b/c of Tamra? Or Vicky? How will I know if you don’t watch???

            • realhousewifeva says:

              Not watching, I truly have no interest. Tamra is the one i hate the most, Slade is a close second but all in all, they ALL suck. I need to enjoy at least a couple of them, because otherwise I’ll just be pissed off the entire hour! lol

              • NJBev says:

                I have always a bad feeling towards Tamra.
                She needs to be “checked” lol
                Tamra really does suck the enjoyment out
                of this series.
                That’s why I am thrilled that Laurie will be
                back- Tamra was always highly intimidated
                by Laurie. This will be worth the “watch”
                I promise.

                • Nancy says:

                  I just heard on WWHL that Vicki said that Laurie is having problems at home. Ouch!

                  • NJBev says:

                    Show me someone who says they have a perfect home life, and I’ll show you a liar!!
                    Of course sh!t is going on in Laurie’s life- Her Hubs business has got to be suffering.
                    The CA market is just recovering. Her son is a drug addict since he was 14. Her older
                    daughter is the hugest narcissistic Bitch EVER! George never wanted her to film again,
                    and she’s probably missing the limelight. I’ll bet Bravo made her an offer she couldn’t refuse (or didn’t want to!)
                    Vickie was always PROFOUNDLY Jealous of Laurie. Remember the whole “ROLEX”
                    watch issues?? ha. This is going to be fun.
                    To Me, the entire Real Housewives franchise is exactly like doing your first illicit drug.
                    After the first hit (first season of OC) you spend the rest of your addiction chasing that
                    very first high!!! You never quite achieve it, now do you?!

                • realhousewifeva says:

                  I agree but the thing is, I don’t think anyone is going to check Tamra this season, Tamra said in an interview that Laurie causes drama with Vicki when she comes back.

        • melthehound says:

          They have all played their own roles in that bitch thing. I don’t really excuse any of them for it, I just like some more than others 😉

          • realhousewifeva says:

            There’s a saying that goes something like ‘When you don’t like someone, everything they do becomes annoying: Just look at her over there eating her lunch like that”

            It’s sort of like that with the housewives, the ones we like can be a bitch and it doesn’t bother us, but the ones we hate act bitchy and we are up in arms. lol

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              That is so true!!! And funny about eating her lunch like that!! I so can relate!!

            • melthehound says:

              I get that… There have been people I didn’t like that just listening to them chew gum or their food or even breathe, annoyed the hell out of me.

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      Their relationship is toxic and it bothers me how they both are delighted when they hurt each other. We have had to watch the twisted sisters for three season – it is time for both of them to go away. Their reality isn’t one I want to watch – it isn’t entertaining, inspiring or interesting.

    • NJBev says:

      VA- your sister sounds very passive aggressive. Don”t turn
      your back on her, and never let her see you sweat. Once
      she feels like she has a “hot” spot on you she will zone in
      like radar. “Condescend” if you have to, even be patronizing
      if you must… this way she will s l o w l y understand that you
      have got her #. She cannot continue to live with the “schadenfreude”
      towards you and your family. She needs to be “checked”, and I think
      you are just the one who can do it.

      • realhousewifeva says:

        Thanks, I think my sister, when all is said and done, is very insecure. Most people who know her know how she is, so over the years I’ve really learned how to deal with her and her husband (He is worse than her). and the good thing is that we live in two seperate states so the distance makes it easier.

        • L.A. Chica says:

          It does sound like she is insecure; secure people tend to be happy for other people’s successes, insecure people feel the need to bring them down.

          Sibling relationships can be so complicated!

    • mrspeabody says:

      I agree with what Brandi said too, I think Kyle does want her sister to fail. I don’t think she sits around thinking I hope Kim starts drinking again, I don’t think she even realizes what she is putting out there. I think she has always been jealous that Kim was the star in the family, the same way I think she is jealous she is no longer the popular girl on the show. I think she wants front and center for herself and doesn’t like to share. If Kim stays sober then her relationship with Kim will change, she will no longer be the sister who has a wonderful life and Kim the loser. It will be look at all Kim has overcome and how wonderful she is doing now, it will put the spotlight back on Kim and Kyle will fade into the background again. So yes I think deep down she does want her sister to fail. I think Kim has a very long way to go, I don’t think she is able to let things that happened in the past, I seriously doubt she is following any program but I have no way of knowing for sure but I will bet money Kyle is not and she also needs alot of help.

      • L.A. Chica says:

        It feels to me like Kyle wants her sister to fail so she can be right and maintain her sense of superiority over Kim. And I agree, I don’t think she’s aware of this herself, which is all part of the family insanity dynamic.

    • calipam says:

      Love your post. I can’t believe I actually LIKED Kyle in Season 1….it hasn’t taken very long for her true colors to show. She is jealous of every woman in the room, including her sister, and you only have to take a look at her to see why. The pudgy hands & facial wrinkles are impossible to hide. And, being from the same town, you can be sure I’ve heard the facts about Mo….one of the biggest cheaters on the planet.

  179. Exit4 says:

    For the small majority who are not Brandi fans-my comrades in arms-I salute you!

    Next up, my hometown (ok, home state) bitches! Given the press since it last aired, jersey will be a long ride! If NMD would allow it, id live to do something for the blog with jersey. Not a recap weekly type thing, I can’t commit to that, especially in the summer, when I’m back and forth (it’s too hectic) but maybe some opinion pieces? Would anyone want that? Is that stupid? Let me know either way, I won’t take it personally! Oh, and if I did anything, I’d use my PC and SPELLCHECK! You know, cut out the iPhone spelling doozies.

    Thankfully, life will be Brandi free-I hope. At least for a little while!

    • melthehound says:

      I’d welcome it but be prepared to be disagreed with 😉

      As for being done hearing about Brandi (brandi free), have we stopped hearing about NJ since it completed the last season? Just sayin 😉

      • Exit4 says:

        I don’t mind being disagreed with with… It would be fun if I was given a topic and told to go with it. I can be fair. As long as its not about Kathy. Because thats 2 sentences. Could she BE any more irrelevant? (Please say that in a chandler bing voice).

        This is very true about NJ. I’d like to say we are the gift that keeps on giving. No other franchise keeps it going like NJ! Brandi (and BH) is more out of sight out of mind. Which now that I think about it, means she will just work harder to stay in the spotlight. Thanks a lot Mr Hound! 😉

    I lasted about 3 mins watching Orange County…….Tamara saying Eddie is controlling cuz he wants her to take her shoes off and shut off lights, she’s just a slut pig!!!

    I am watching The Voice.

  181. nyc mama says:

    The previews are on Bravo for next weeks lost footage. In one Kyle is asked about Faye and it isn’t pretty – she again tries to justify and excuse Faye’s behavior and the other is about Taylor and how she wasn’t supported by Adrienne about the abuse. Taylor goes verbally Oklahoma on her, well kinda. I have to say, Taylor “did find her voice”.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      The Taylor one is SO STRANGE to me, only because on that actual episode she was buddy buddy with Adrienne and Paul, they did her charity event. That’s the same episode where she is gossiping about Brandi and calls Adrienne over to tell the story. Suddenly she is fighting with Adrienne? Step away from the alcohol Taylor.

  182. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

  187. Catseye says:

    I know someone already said something like this, but Kim looks like CRAP! She looks so old and worn out. Her hair is way too long and too bleached out for one thing and her skin looks horrible.

    • princesspindy says:

      I am so sick of her.

      • NJBev says:

        Kim needs to “be” retired and put out to pasture.
        She is mentally stunted, as most severe alcoholics
        are, and still lives and thinks like an 18 yr. old.

        This would be the perfect season for her to ‘retire’
        She thinks she’s proven her sobriety, doesn’t have anything
        major to “overcome”……………… she needs to fade
        left, saying “goodnight Mr. Demille, ahh, i mean Mr Cohen,
        thank you for my

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      Her make up is bad – she is too fair for a smokey eye.

        That dress she had on didn’t help either. Ouch!

        • NJBev says:

          Lord, was that not ugly, Nance?
          eeesh. The worst color for her skin tone.

          • Nancy says:

            She’s a child so it’s so hard to watch. Why would Kyle encourage her to do this show?
            Obviously it’s money and it makes me sick.

            • Catseye says:

              Yep. I think she blew all her money on drugs. I honestly do.

              • NJBev says:

                and, Catseye, you are 100% right.

              • kit9 says:

                Kim was apparently not so great with her money to begin with but alcoholics are also great marks for thieves. My sister was a very successful woman before she became an alcoholic and has literally lost thousands to people who pretended to be her friend/bf’s and then stole her money. It’s easy to do when the person is passed out or isn’t opening their bank statements because their lives are so out of control because they’re drunk much of the time.

            • kit9 says:

              Completely disagree. There’s a very good reason Kyle encouraged her to do the show, to keep her involved and social, give her a reason to get up and get dressed and not be home alone all day to drink. The same reason Kyle’s been begging Kim to move closer to her and the rest of her family since S1. Drunks love to be isolated and alone. Kyle still thinks, and thought then, she can help Kim when nobody can help Kim but Kim. I used to, before I accepted this painful truth, have little projects to try and keep my sister involved the same way.

              • NJBev says:

                You make a very compelling argument, Kit9. When presented
                with your perspective I must say that I can see exactly where you are coming from.
                That’s what I love about this place, I can really learn so much from everyone’s
                opinions and not feel silly for admitting that I may not have thought about
                every different perspective. You have some very good points, Kit.

              • realhousewifeva says:

                I always wonder why Kyle or any of Kim’s family allows her to continue on this show, and this makes sense. It could very well be the reason in their minds. She’s accountable now.

              • windycitywondering2 says:

                ITA – Kim likes to be “alone” so no one knows what she is doing.

  188. princesspindy says:

    Kim thinks she got thru the season sober, seriously. That makes one of us.

    • Catseye says:

      She’s so full of it. Wasn’t she bragging when she got her nose done, about how healthy her doctor said she was? That she barely had to have any anesthesia, then on the reunion, crying that her “body couldn’t take it, any more” in regard to going to rehab? That it was her “last chance” or something. I’m sick of her too.

    I did not watch the reunion – I am missing it and may watch a lot later than usual…but I am so glad I came to read the chat. You guys are funny!!!! The blogs and comments are usually better than the actual shows, so this is nothing new…but I had tom tell you 🙂 you all were funny, and I got to read what happened without watching 😛

    “STFU Kyle” and a few “STFU Kim” had me lol

    Tme for bed, I hope I get to watch the reunion soon, but I will be here to read the recap and the comments 🙂

    Good night.

  191. California35 says:

    Oh! One more thing. I had so much to coment about BH last episodes and 1st part of reunion, but in forgot by now. One thing I did not forget is, that while Mauricio did not care much for Brandi (no $ and single), to watch out. She could get a rich/famous boyfriend who will buy them a big mantion. By now people should know that things change, and those “underdogs” can make it big eventually. People should treat everyone wight the same respect. Any ways, that is one of my thoughts.

    Good night.

    • princesspindy says:

      That’s right, good night.

    • California35 says:

      Just to clarify, she could make her own money (she did good eith the book), but I used the boyfriend thing as an example or a faster way to see the $.

      • NJBev says:

        You have some very good thoughts and opinions, Cali35.
        Hope you had a great week off, and going back to work wasn’t to hard
        on you or your puppy. Get a really good nights rest tonite, ok ?? xo

        • california35 says:

          Thank you and thank you 🙂

          Had a very nice and peaceful week off 🙂 coming backs i work was not too bad (hoping it will continue)

          I hope you are doing well. Talk to you on the current blog 🙂

  192. kit9 says:

    Brandi is a cun*t. It’s her word for the rest of the cast but it’s the only word to accurately describe HER. She’s saying, in effect, that Kyle wants her sister dead. I’ve never wanted to reach through the tv and punch someone in the face more in my life. Beyond despicable. If doubting a long time addict is sober means you want them to fail, then every family with an addict wants them to fail. She has no effing clue what it’s like to deal with an addict for years and years. Kim’s given Kyle years to doubt her word and for Kim to be upset to hear it is unfair, self-centered and dishonest. Kim gave Kyle and everyone else reasons to doubt her sobriety and that’s Kim’s fault not theirs. But, of course, Kim rarely accepts responsibility for anything. I don’t believe for a second her story about mixing up her meds. Kyle said to her, ‘the pills that made you so out of it before?’ or words to that effect. If they made her out of it, it begs the question…why did Kim still have those pills? A: she was abusing them in lieu of alcohol.

    • Rebecca says:

      Kim’s problems with addiction is Kyle’s victim-storyline. I’m glad she was called out. The last three seasons have been awful as we have see Kyle throw her sister under the bus and back up over her again and again. At least Kim has a sister (Kathy) who gives her private and unconditional support.

    • princesspindy says:

      Insanity or death, that’s how it ends without sobriety…. Kyle’s skepticism is that of someone who has seen it and heard it all before…

    • Catseye says:

      I totally agree with you kit9.

  193. lillybee says:

    In the three seasons of this show, the only time I have ever seen Kyle supporting Kim was during game night when they both were so mean to Brandi.

    • Rebecca says:

      And she was proud to see the old Kim back. Disgusting.

    • mrspeabody says:

      the only time she sticks up for her is when someone else is picking on her, same with Kim. Ever notice when someone attacks one of them the other has their back.

        • LaineyLainey says:

          Except for when Taylor threatened to go Oklahoma on Kim’s ass. Kyle said nothing. If it had been my drunk sister, I wouldn’t have just sat there silently. I wouldn’t have gone Texas on Oklahoma, but I would have said SOMETHING. “Baby Fish Lips!!” Something! Anything.

  194. SoutheastVA says:

    Why do so many people excuse Brandi’s lying and mean girl but I’m a victim schtick? She’s visibly calculating.

    • Catseye says:

      I’m beginning to think so, too. I liked her at first, but not any more.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      “I think you want your sister to be a drunk and essentially die….but I am not saying that to be mean”.

      • NJBev says:

        oh Rabble- hope I caught you for real!!!
        I left you a note way up stream, basically just
        telling you that I hope you’re well and miss ya!
        I’ve always gotten such a huge kick out of you
        and the Rabble-ettes.

      • L.A. Chica says:

        She sounds like Kyle. Which makes me wonder if she was mirroring Kyle on purpose to give her a taste of her own medicine. “You’re phony, manipulative, calculating, and hold onto grudges but I’m not saying this to be insulting, it’s just how I feeeeel. Why won’t you be my bff anymore?”

        Grab a klue, Kyle. This is you.

    • Cartwheels says:

      I don’t think a lot of viewers excuse Brandi’s lies or even believe her, there have been so many inconsistencies in her story that it is obvious that she is a big time liar and scheamer but in this world of reality TV she knows how to play the game, I think or would like to believe at least , that being temporary blind and deaf to Brandi’s awful behavior is more of reaction as to who she is against.
      Brandi is a very smart, at least street smart girl and the fact that she is friends with Lisa and Yolanda is a testament to that, she knows how to read the viewers, she knows what the viewers want and if she is mean with the “not cool girls” then she can get away with it and she knows it.
      If Faye, Kyle, Kim, Camille, Maritza or Adrienne would have even remotely tried to get away with lying for a whole season about a non existant lawsuit, or a C&D letter that was never even directed at them, if any of them would had used the excuse about being a poor, broke, single mother all season round and then prove that their story line was a big, fat lie, they would be called awful names and branded liars for the rest of their reality TV lives, nobody would ever let them forget that.
      But Brandi went against Adrienne, who dared to go against Lisa (one of the show favorites), so everything became fair game, the need to prove that Adrienne was this horrible person (which she probably is) became the excuse given time and time again to condone Brandi’s behavior.
      So I guess if your favorite character is attacked, then whatever her and her friends do is fair game, if one of the not favorites is attacked, then the bitch deserved it.
      I always tried to think “would I feel the same if XYZ would have done it to my favorite?” and if the answer is no , then the behavior is wrong.
      I do not have a favorite is this franchise anymore and any of these ladies at any given time can provide me with enough material to critisize them for a lifetime, but to me their behaviors are sort of expected in the reality TV kingdom, gossiping, innuendo, you had my back, you didn’t have my back, is part of the routine and I know that.
      Brandi’s behavior is in a total different category. I have never seen anybody so blatantly lied and make her story line of the season a non existant lawsuit, the only explanation that I have is that ,regardless if the beef was against Adrienne, it depicts Brandi very clearly to me, the way she lies and embellishes, the way she can quickly call you a liar to your face when she is the one lying and be so believable , the tears, the fake outrage, the poor me card that she pulls every so often, the completely awful remarks she makes against those who are not her friends, her oversexualized talk, those are not behaviors displayed for a reality TV show, those behaviors are her, this is who she really is with cameras or without.
      Others might like her for right now, but if she even dares to pull any of this crap against Lisa or Yolanda, she will come quickly crushing down, but Brandi is way too smart to do that, she has laid the ground for it to be Kyle next season and she probably will get away with it too.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Cartwheels, great post. I do enjoy how much thought you put into it…girl YOU BROKE IT DOWN!!! I may not agree 100% with 100% of what you say, but I think you have a valid argument and you present your opinion well.

        Only one thing, you said that “Brandi laid the ground for it to be Kyle” in your last paragraph, but I think Kyle did that all by herself. She tried to play all sides for as long as she could, but it really caught up with her. We, the viewers, could see what she was doing all along…but it took her fellow castmembers a while to catch up to us. She is so nice and understanding to your face (her castmembers’), they are lulled into a state of “Kyle is so cool, Kyle is on my side.” And then they go back and watch the actual show and boom…the castmembers’ eyes are opened to how Kyle plays the game. I don’t think she’s evil,…but her sense of survival is very strong and she THINKS that being non-committal is the way to ensure her own survival in the group. That has worked for her up to now, evidenced by her pretty successful life…but it can only last so long when folks are seeing your Talking Heads on tape, over and over again. Brandi is pretty blatant; almost “in your face” about her true feelings and about where her loyalties lie. That could a part of why this very “rough around the edges” woman is so popular with many viewers. It’s part of why I appreciate her more than most of the housewives. I don’t agree with everything she does or says, but she leaves very little to the imagination, there’s nothing to read in nuance or subtlety…it’s just bleah..out there. It’s what makes her kinda unique for these shows. Like her or not, she’s a bit unique. Unlike the Gretchens and Kathy Wakile’s…of the housewives who pretend to be nice. Brandi doesn’t pretend to be nice. I like nice, don’t get me wrong,…but not if you really aren’t nice. Ok, then that begs the question…WHO IS NICE on these shows??? hmmmmm

    This premiere was already filled with drama which is no surprise, considering that Vicki and Tamra are still on the outs. I love Heather and I think she is so funny, but reading a little bit about Lydia I am excited to meet her and see what she is going to be like on the show. I couldn’t watch the premiere at home last night since I was working my shift at DISH when it aired. I did however watch it on my lunch hour on the DISH Anywhere app. With this app I can stream live TV on my iPad anywhere I go, so I didn’t have to wait until I got home to see all the excitement.
