Kandi spills the Tea on WWHL – NeNe is Getting a Spin Off Show for her Wedding and Other Gossip by NoMoreDrama

There is nothing like a live talk show to get the tea.  Last night on WWHL, a caller asked Kandi Burruss how she felt about Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes becoming friends again.  Kandi said that the two frenemies had a love-fest while they were filming the reunion.  She then bit her tongue, waffled a little, and then said it was cool that they were friends again and maybe we’d see Kim on NeNe’s show.  Shock registered on Andy’s face.  Like the wedding, Kandi explained quickly before Andy changed the topic.  There you go.  NeNe will get the third “wedding” spinoff after Bethenny Frankel and Kim Zolciak.  Kandi also has a spinoff that will follow her nurturing musical talent.

Real Housewives of Atlanta by RamonaCoaster

Season Finale has finally arrived!

Kenya arrives at her dream team party planner meeting and Tommy Ford from Martin is at the meeting.  Kenya is planning a gala, not just a party featuring iconic black women in film.  Kenya had an idea to reenact the scenes from some films so she really wants to create a production.  This is one party that Walter will definitely be left off the guest list.

the-real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-5-episode-520-05The lawyer and Kandi are at a self defense class to promote the lawyer’s stun gun.  Her stun gun is pink and feminine just like most of Kandi’s products. Kandi makes a joke that her electrical appliance is meant for pleasure and the lawyer’s is meant for pain.  Kandi actually does stun some guy, she says by “accident.”  Poor dude.

the-real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-5-episode-520-07Porsha and Kordell is at the pyschologist’s office to talk about their marriage, getting pregnant and the miscarriage.  Kordell says their arguments last 5 minutes and Porsha loses every single time.  When the psychologist asks Kordell how he felt about losing the baby, he says he lost his father around the same time and that he was taught to be a “manly man” and he was gone when Porsha needed him.  Porsha continues on with the manly man wanting her to stay home with the baby and not have a career.  The psychologist asks why should she give up her career and have a baby when women do that all the time.  Kordell brings up the word divorce. Seems like the psychologist is on Porsha’s side wanting Kordell to help Porsha make it happen to be a mother and career woman.  Sounds like Kordell is only interested in making Kordell happy and Porsha’s happiness takes a back seat.  I wonder how Porsha got Kordell to be okay with being on Housewives.

the-real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-5-episode-520-11Kenya is setting up for the party and she is asking about rehearsing with a chariot. A chariot?  This is going to be some party. Three hundred people RSVP’d for the party. Kenya in her TH says it was not meant as an insult to want Porsha to show up as HalleBerry as BAPS.  In the next scene, Porsha is modeling her BAPS outfits at the hair salon.  Porsha tells everyone it was Kenya’s idea and they all think Kenya was up to no good.

Porsha got her orange hot pants outfit on for HalleBerry with a gold teeth and her wig that looked more like Mrs. Brady than BAPS.  The entire hair salon convinces Porsha that Kenya was trying to make fun of her asking her to be BAPS while everyone else dresses up more elegantly.    They don’t want her to have an Elle from Legally Blonde moment, showing up in a bunny outfit.

Kandi shows up as Angela Bassett playing Tina Turner in What’s Love Got to do With It.

the-real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-5-episode-520-17the-real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-5-episode-520-16the-real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-5-episode-520-20the-real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-5-episode-520-23Kenya shows up as Pam Grier and does a good impersonation of Foxy Brown.  Cynthia is wearing her Diana Ross in Mahogany look and looks classy.  Peter looks good but Billy Dee Williams, he’s not.  Still looked better than Todd – I didn’t know what he was.  Porsha greet Kenya in her HalleBerry as Dorothy Dandridge costume, not BAPS.  Kenya gets flustered then tells the event planner to cancel the BAPS portion and she starts chastising Porsha and Porsha accuses Kenya of trying to put her down.  Then Kenya throws Porsha and Kordell out of the party and went so far as to ask the security guards to escort them out.

Then everyone decides to leave. Cynthia, Peter and Kandi tell Kenya they are leaving because parties are supposed to be fun.  Porsha feels good that everyone is leaving because of her.  Did Porsha just say “malus content”?    I guess she meant malcontent.  Cynthia calls Nene and she agrees it’s mean and hateful to kick someone out of the party.  Kenya talks to the group and they argue who was being disrespectful first.  Kordell steps in front of his wife to argue and then steps back.  She’s way too Pam Grier for him.  Porsha accuses Kenya of planning to be a bitch from the beginning and she expects an apology.  Then Kenya does a blanket apology and invites them all back to the party and goes back inside.

the-real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-5-episode-520-28
They are all standing outside and Kordell tries to organize an apology from Kenya (I guess because he didn’t believe the first apology) and asks Brandon to get Kenya but they somehow get into an argument. Then Porsha says the guys getting into a fight is trash craziness.  What?  You are the part of the problem too.  Nene shows up as Grace Jones with a whip and all.  The lawyer shows up as Eartha Kitt as Catwoman.  Everyone agrees it was premeditated to kick Porsha out.  They all decide to go in as Kenya makes her speech.

Nene speaks to Kenya about kicking Porsha out. Nene thinks Porsha should have come as the character Kenya asked but there is no reason to flip out about it.  Nene gives her good advice to not burn bridges.  Kenya agrees and decides to apologize to Porsha and speaks to Porsha about having a conversation because a lot of old stuff comes up when they get together.  Porsha accepts her apology but in her TH thinks it’s bull.

Kenya then introduces the ladies to the audience.

Porsha Stewart as Miss Dorothy Dandridge – in the captions it says “Kordell filed for divorce.”  That’s it. Nothing else.  As if all Bravo wanted the audience to see her as Kordell’s wife and nothing more.

Phaedra Parks as Eartha Kitt – “Phaedra is expecting baby boy #2 (this time she knows the due date).  A pregnancy workout video is in the works….no competition is expected.”

The sassy, classy Kandi Burruss – “ Kandi’s sex toy empire keeps buzzing louder.  Kandi and Todd are officially engaged. Momma Joyce isn’t moving in … yet.

Cynthia Bailey as Mahony, give me a twirl, girl – “The Miss Rennaissance Pageant 2013 is already accepting applications. Having had two weddings, Cynthia is helping Nene plan her re-nuptials.”

the-real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-5-episode-520-29Sassiest bitch on the planet – Miss Nene Leakes.  I see now where the chariot comes in.  They have a square off Foxy Jones vs. Grace Jones – “Nene continues to live bi-coastally and is awaiting her next big role.  Gregg gave Nene a 15-carat engagement ring.”

KenyaMoore – “Kenya is currently dating an African oil tycoon.  She maintains that her workout DVD is outselling Phaedra’s.”  Sounds like another made up boyfriend.

the-real-housewives-of-atlanta-season-5-episode-520-30

Peter then makes an announcement “the after party is at Bar One.”  Hey man, gotta sell your business.

Married to Medicine “Mistress of Medicine” by BB

Quad makes her appearance

Quad makes her appearance

It the day of Mariah’s Doctors on the Dock party.  Everyone is there in groups talking.  Quad makes her entrance and greets her husband.  The ladies comment on her making an entrance in someone else’s home.  She greets everyone except Toya, who questioned her about her marriage at the last party.  If you remember also at the last party, Kari kept referring to Quad’s husband as a psychologist rather than a psychiatrist, which Quad took as the ultimate insult.  Quad asks Kari what her story is, whether it’s her and her husband’s first marriage.  It’s Kari’s first marriage, but her husband’s second.  Quad is trying to get her to admit she was dating her husband before he was divorced and says something about Kari being a medical mistress.

Kari thinks Quad has a lot to learn about being a doctor’s wife and should be using her husband for therapy 24/7.  Kari leaves the women and goes to her husband’s side to report that Quad has been doing research on them and called her a medical mistress.  Quad was not going to stand by idle while Kari was tearing her down talking about her behind her back.  Toya seems happy that Quad has found another target other than her.  Kari asks Mariah if Quad found out about her husband being married before from her.  She doesn’t admit or deny it.

Quad, Simone and Mariah talk separately.  When Quad tells Simone she called Kari a medical mistress because she started dating her husband before his divorce, Simone tells her she needs to bring it down a notch and she’s going to clean up some of that shit that’s coming out her mouth.

Kari is not happy.

Kari is not happy.

Toya tells her husband she wishes Quad could see herself and how rude she is.  Quad gets back with the group of girls.  Kari tells her she’s been married for 12 years and how dare Quad call her a medical mistress.  Quad is making a fool of herself trying to start something with Kari.  She keeps talking about how her husband went to Duke and the University of Chicago.  Kari tells Quad she never said her husband wasn’t a smart man.  Kari and Quad keep telling each other to fly away, and someone is on the moon, but only in their head, yada, yada, yada.  Then all of a sudden, Quad says something about Kari being in an anorexic clinic.  Dead silence.  As Quad says, you could hear a church mouse piss on the ground.  In her TH, Kari says she has suffered from anorexia, but it’s a personal thing in her past and Quad has gone too far.  They keep trading barbs until Mariah pulls Quad away from the group and tells the others to keep Kari there.

Kari is furious and the others around her think Quad is hitting way below the belt.  Kari goes to find her husband and after they explain how they feel to Mariah, they leave.  Quad is sure Kari won’t cross her again after that.

Toya tries to convince her husband that they need a new home.

Toya tries to convince her husband that they need a new home.

Toya and Eugene talk about Quad.  Eugene thinks she’s just young.  Toya says she’s at least 30 and not in her twenties.  They talk about their plans, his business, their finances, and plans for a new house.  He wants to start a medical concierge service and they discuss having a party to get the word out about it.  Toya thinks Eugene should take classes and offer botox services as part of this practice.  He disagrees and wants to help people with urgent medical conditions.  Toya tells him for some women, botox can be very urgent.

Jackie and Simone catch up.

Jackie and Simone catch up.

At Simone’s house, Jackie arrives and they have a glass of water together.  Remember Jackie does not drink.  Jackie heard about the fighting at Mariah’s and it pains her to see Black women act like it’s OK to roll your neck and such.  Simone knows Jackie would never roll her neck, but Simone might.  Jackie tells Simone that’s not her on the inside though.  Simone knows Jackie tries to be a role model for others, but thinks sometimes she may be a little unrealistic.  As Simone tries to tell Jackie she can’t be calm, cool and collected like her, she gets louder and louder.  Jackie tells Simone to turn it down.  Simone thinks Jackie is judging the others.  Jackie tells her she’s not judging, but fighting like they do in public only hurts their husband’s reputations.  Simone finally agrees with Jackie just to stop the conversation probably.

Mariah and Ayden discuss the party.

Mariah and Ayden discuss the party.

At Mariah’s, she and her husband Aydin discuss the party.  As much as she loves Miss Quad, she has messed up two of her parties, her birthday and her Drs. On the Dock.  Aydin says just because she grew up in the hood doesn’t mean she has to bring the hood into her new life.  Aydin works the night shift at the ER so he can be home during the day with his kids.  He tells Mariah he had two deaths the previous night.  Mariah realizes she would make a sacrifice when she signed up to be a doctor’s wife.  They have a discussion about who chose who.

At Simone’s office, she meets with a couple to discuss a potential serious condition they saw in the ultrasound. The baby boy has enlarged kidneys.  She tells them not to worry because their other tests are normal.  They will take another ultrasound the next day and hopefully, the kidneys will be normal.  Back at home, Simone’s husband Cecil is preparing dinner for her and their two sons.  They’ve been married for 16 years.  Simone seems to be the one in charge, but Cecil says if you’re truly in charge you don’t have to announce it.  She kids that she’s torn she can’t do the cooking, laundry and such.  Then laughs hilariously.

Quad is an account executive for a home health agency.  She has her own career and doesn’t need a doctor to support her, even though she supports her husband’s career.  She’s in the top ten in her field and working to become number one.  Kari has sent Quad a text message.

Kari and Toya are out shopping.  Kari is still reeling from the party.  Kari tells Toya about her eating disorder from 18 to 20 years ago.  She was so mortified about what Quad did, she sent her a text calling her a low class person and that she cannot be around people like her.  She wishes Quad and her husband the best but she needs to stop acting like a low class whore before she can be around her.  Kari uninvites Quad from the upcoming party she and Mariah have planned.  Toya and Kari know the score when you are a doctor’s wife.  Sometimes you have to play nice even when you don’t particularly like some of the people you socialize with.  Doctors make referrals and you don’t want to make enemies within the community.

Kari is in her husband’s office.  Duncan has a mechanical valve in his heart and she asks him when he last had it checked.  He’s supposed to get it checked every month but hasn’t done it in six months. He’s going to show her how to give him a chest x-ray so he can send it to his cardiologist to get it checked.  She keeps her finger on the trigger and they joke about him glowing in the dark.  She tells Duncan about being upset about the medical mistress remark.  He tells her not to worry about it.  She tells him about the text she sent Quad and how she uninvited her to the party.  He tells her to unruffled her feathers.  He wants to be friends with all the guys, including Greg.  He tells Kari to make up with Quad.  Kind of reminds me of Mauricio telling Kyle to make up with Camille.  Duncan is thinking about his business and connections in the Atlanta medical world.

Simone has the second ultrasound report and delivers the news to her patient.  Simone reassures her the mild dialation of the kidneys has disappeared.  She apologizes for worrying her but tells her she must let her patients know about any concerns when they occur.

Kari and Mariah

Kari and Mariah

Kari goes to Mariah’s house to talk about the joint birthday party for their husbands.  Kari wants to have an old Hollywood glamour party.  Mariah tells Kari she’s nervous about the situation between her and Quad.  Mariah calls Kari mean and there’s no way she can have the party and not invite Quad and Greg.  Mariah tells Kari Quad has a lot to learn.  Kari agrees.  She says Quad means well.  Kari doesn’t look as if she agrees.

Mariah and Quad

Mariah and Quad

Mariah and Quad go to the park and talk about the party.  Quad doesn’t see why Kari should be so upset about what Quad did.  Quad saw it as vindication for how she’s been treated by Kari.  Mariah thinks they both got off to a bad start.  Quad informs Mariah she’s been uninvited to the upcoming party.  Mariah tells Quad Kari can’t uninvite her because it’s her husband’s party too; she’s co-hosting and paying for half of it.  Quad says apparently Kari’s has pulled the power move because it’s at her house.  Mariah informs Quad all that’s about to change.  Until Next Week.

Leg 7 – Maun, Botswana, South Africa – Be Safe and Don’t Hit A Cow.

Welcome back race fans. Last week, Newlyweds were gone and I was happy until Phil uttered those horrible words, Non Elimination Round. Well, I’m sure the newlyweds were happy to hear those words but I wasn’t. The teams are in Maun, Botswana, South Africa. This week they will have to do a speed bump. Hockey brothers took first place. Let’s see what happens this week, shall we?

The start of the 7th leg of the race has them going to Boro Village to get their next clue. Hockey leaves first, they are nervous about being in first place. Besties leave next and they mutter some garbage about how good they are on their own and would be better off running the race if there were no other teams there. Whatever. Alabama checks out next, Chuck is going to wear Wynona out before they even get started with the running. YouTube leaves fourth. Country leaves fifth, they’ve put their race in the hands of God and are staying light hearted about the whole thing. Derby moms leave next followed by Newlyweds. Newlyweds can’t find the cars and they note that they are not playing to full potential, they keep beating themselves.

tar1Hockey stops somewhere and asks directions, they aren’t use to not following (and cheating from) another team. YouTube can’t get directions straight, too use to electronic gadgets, being from that generation and all. Somehow I doubt GPS would do them any good there anyway. Country is driving along, noting how blessed they feel and are just enjoying the sights. Then it happens… I think Caroline was driving and she was going twice the speed limit. At least that’s what the policeman said that Walked out into the road, and flagged them down. Yes, He wrote them a ticket, for 820 ‘pula’, about $100 according to Caroline. They have to go pay the ticket before they can proceed I guess. Derby moms pass them by while the cop is writing the ticket. He sends them on their way by saying Thank You 😆 … Meanwhile, Max (newlyweds) still can’t find the car. Can’t remember where they parked it (hint, Max, you parked where everyone else did. They’ve all found them and are gone). They finally find it and are on their way.

tar2 tar3The Bora Village clue is a Roadblock or a Fast Forward. Only one team can do the fast forward and since the Hockey brothers get there first, they decide to try it. It is to water ski, one mile in the river. I don’t know yet which brother is which but one of them (the one with the longer hair) says he’s never successfully done it before. The other catch, there are crocodiles in the water or at least along the shore. They decide to go for it and do complete it. That makes it unavailable for anyone else to do. The prize for the fast forward is they are taken to a safari truck and then to the next pit stop. Besties arrive at the village second and have to do the roadblock. It is to get in one of those canoes, that are made by hollowing a single tree, and navigate on the river to deliver two goats. After they do that, they come back to the village and get their next clue to continue on. (Remember with these roadblocks, each team member must do an equal number of them. That means that one member cannot do all of them). I don’t know which of the Besties did the roadblock but one of them has to ‘drive’ the boat while the other is just along for the ride, holding the goats. I laughed, in the Besties boat, one of the goats peed on one of the girls. I guess when they gotta go, they just go. Now the comedy begins… Alabama arrives, and Wynona has to do the roadblock (I would like to have seen them do that fast forward for some reason.. it would have been a hoot). She wrangles a couple goats and gets them in the boat for Chuck to hold and they get going. Besties have decided they are going the wrong way and can’t navigate the boat anyway. We’ll leave that there for a minute.

Over at the police station, they won’t let Caroline leave before the ticket is paid so Jennifer has to go find a place to exchange the money. She asks a local, if she has to drive to the place to do that, he says yes. Stay with me here…. She cannot or doesn’t want to leave Caroline so she Gives this guy the money to go exchange for her. Got that? She HOPES he comes back. Got that? Let’s see what happens. Meanwhile, Joey has managed to get YouTube lost (I think Meghan should have driven) and Newlyweds appear to be on their way. Derby has arrived at the village to do the boat thing. HA! Guess who else got a ticket? Speed trap.. The limit where the police are waiting for them is 60km/h, they were going 76  (Caroline was going 120km/h). While Max is getting his ticket, Katie is talking about how he, the man, couldn’t find the car and now, he’s gotten a speeding ticket. The difference between them and Country, they have the proper currency to pay for it. Not sure how that happened but I guess it did. Remember though, they also have to do a speed bump.

Well, guess what kids? There are honest people left in the world. Guy came back with Country’s money and they can pay the ticket and go. Of course they think they are in last place but at least they are on their way. Meanwhile back at the river, Besties must have figured that boat out because they get their goats delivered and can head back. Wynona is spinning hers in circles with Chuck bitching at her. Derby moms aren’t faring too much better but they’re being a little nicer to each other about it. A little bickering but not a big deal. YouTube is hopelessly lost just driving along but they finally ask someone else for directions. I don’t think this Joey guy could find his own ass with both hands. Country arrives at the river and Caroline does the task and begins chasing to catch her two goats (she does).. Wynona finally figured out how to operate that boat and they get their goats delivered. Still bickering on the way back. Beth (Derby) is having a little trouble operating the boat still as Country gets going. Derby bumps into a few boats and Wynona makes it back to where they are and the two of them have to navigate around each other.. Over at the Police station, Max has to get in line to pay his ticket. Apparently, that speed trap is a high yield one.

Besties, get the next clue and they are to take a water taxi up the river to the Safari vehicles that will take them to the pit stop. No detours this leg? Alabama finishes next, Country passes Derby moms, YouTube is still lost, and Newlyweds are still waiting to pay their ticket. Country and Derby arrives back to get their next clue in that order and can be on their way to the safari trucks down the river, behind Alabama.

tar4 tar5(sorry about the play buttons in the pics folks, I’m getting lazy in trying to snag these grabs for you) Max gets his ticket paid and as he’s backing out, he runs into a light pole. (Go ahead and laugh, I’ll wait)… They leave, manage to find where they are going and YouTube finally gets there as well, behind Newlyweds. The other five teams are well ahead of them so this is a race for 6th place. Max says that if YouTube beats them on this task, they deserve to be eliminated. Forgot about that speed bump, didn’t you Max ole boy.. Here it is. They have to finish beading a skirt and participate in this ceremonial seduction dance. YouTube Joey gets started on the roadblock..

tar6tar7Turns out, I’m wrong. There Is a detour. Brains or Brawn. Brains they go on a horseback safari where they will see life sized cutouts of different animals. They then have to identify the ones they saw with tiles that have the same animals on them (silhouette) on them and place them in the order they saw the animal cutouts. Brawn, they have to load a sled with wood (sticks and such), and using a carrot hanging from a stick, convince the donkeys to pull the sled. One half of a mile. Then deliver the wood, and they can then move on. Besties, choose Brawn. Alabama does Brains, Country does Brawn. YouTube is spinning in circles in the water and Newlyweds are making asses of themselves doing this dance. All in fun, right?

tar8Besties get the wood loaded on the sled but they must have picked the government donkeys because they aren’t budging, not even for a carrot. Country and Derby able to finesse the beasts of burden and get them walking and pulling the sled. Besties switch to Brains. Back at the river, Newlyweds and YouTube are leaving on the water taxi to get to the safari trucks. They get to the detour and both choose Brawn. Alabama and Besties have chosen to split the task and each remember 5 animals.. Chuck has always wanted to hunt in Africa because everything he has at home is domestic. I’ll just leave that alone. Besties miss one of the animals at the end and both get to where they have to choose and arrange the tiles. Over at the Brawn task, Country was in front of Derby but their sled got stuck against a tree so Derby passed them by. When they got to the camp where they were to deliver the wood, there was some perpetual motoin. The donkeys didn’t want to stop. They got them stopped though, unloaded their wood, and were on their way to the pit stop finishing, second and third. Ole Chuck and Wynona finished fourth.

Okay… As expected, Besties had to go back to the beginning to figure out what they did wrong. They got it wrong a second time (they completely missed seeing one of the cutouts, an Ostrich). Meanwhile, YouTube and Newlyweds are in a dead heat to get their wood delivered. Besties, after botching Brains a second time (I’m kind of loving this), they decide to go back to the Brawn task. YouTube finishes the Brawn task and beats the Newlyweds to the mat by a few seconds. They take, fifth and sixth place respectively. Now, Max said earlier, that if YouTube beat them, they deserve to go home. They (Max and Katie) have been taken down several notches from where they thought they started. They’ve been beaten by every team there, multiple times. I guess they only have to win the last leg of the race but they have to be there to compete in it. For now, they race again another day.

tar9Now, I would have been happy to see any one of these three teams go home. Besties have gotten on my nerves as much as the other two above and perhaps. Don’t worry ladies, there are still two all female teams in this race and neither are weak players. They stated there would be any tearful goodbyes, they weren’t going out like bitches (their words). If they had stuck to the original task, it might have been the Newlyweds who bounced out. The roadblock didn’t really mean a damn thing, that speeding ticket is what really cost them a closer to first finish in the leg. I like however, the fact that Besties got bested by some Derby queens, some country chicks, and a pair of rednecks from Alabama. All of which, they’ve talked smack about during this race and I think they believe they are above somehow. Pam and Winnie, Buh-Bye. Oh, By the way.. Hockey brothers, won $7500 each by being able to skip both the roadblock and the detour. Not bad for a mile of water skiing and ride in a safari jeep.

That’s all folks. Watch it commercial free here if you like, contact me if you have trouble with the link. Or watch it atCBS.COM or On Demand if you have it.

See you next week. Peace, MTH aka WTFIJeff

PS… I will note again that I write these as I watch them. Sometimes things get slightly out of order but nothing that affects the outcome. It all really did happen, almost as I say it did 😉 .

    Good morning everyone. I hope you d a great holiday.

    Hello WIG!! 🙂

    OK Shamrock. What gives? We want the fish story. 🙂

    Just throwing this out there. Are Walter & Kordell secret lovers? Well you lovely people have a great day.

  2. Kat from Ohio says:

    kind of anticlimactic finale… far more interesting stuff is happening off camera for those ladies (nene’s re-nuptials, kandi’s engagement, phaedra’s new baby, and porsha’s divorce). all sound like viable storylines to me next season. i used to not want porsha to return, but now i think that i’d like to see that, and she probably will. i’d like to see if i like her better (i think i would) without kordell, and it would be fun to see a single girl, since she’s young.

    kenya and cynthia… why? cynthia is gorgeous and pretty nice, but she needs to become a friend of the housewives.

    the other day, my mom mentioned that she misses sheree, and i actually do too. can you imagine her and kenya together?! sheree is sheree, but for some reason, even if i didn’t LIKE her, i liked watching her. i guess that’s how some people feel about tamra barney, whom i cannot stand.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Count me out of the “Likes watching Tamra” group. My desire to drastically limit her exposure to my eyeballs and eardrums is why I’ve sworn off OC. My first Bravo boycott. Yippeee! I agree about Porsha NOW having a chance at being a more interesting person with Kordell out of the picture.

      • T-Rex says:

        TrailerTrashTrampieSue is not on my “must watch” list either, she is one of the MAIN reasons I will never watch the OldCronies of the OC ever again. I can read about it here and won’t be watching Bravo much I guess since they are going to shove OCronies and then SnookieandCrew of JOISEY(no offense to folks from New Jersey, this show probably offends you as much as me), so going to watch probably Tabitha and then RHNY when it returns. I have zero interest in that Medical show, and really nothing on Bravo right now strikes my fancy. Been catching up on other programs on other channels through On Demand

        • realhousewifeva says:

          What do you mean about Snooki and crew? Bravo is going to air Jersey shore?

          • realhousewifeva says:

            OMG Ignore me, I literally got it a second after I posted. I thought you literally meant that! HAHA I’m so slow

      • HuskerHuny says:

        Power to you Lainey! I think I will watch, but I’m guessing that once the mean girls show up, I will be switching to something else. So cannot stand Tamra, Gretchen, Heather, Vicki (even though she separated herself from that group, I still don’t like her). What’s left to watch?

        • pat says:

          OC lacks likeable peeps. I will check out the new season to see if the new cast member fills that bill. Tamra is the meanest of mean girls. Someone needs to take her down.

          • Powell says:

            Miss pat I so want someone to take Tamra down.

          • realhousewifeva says:

            Tamra has already said in an interview how much she loves the new girl and even though the new girl came in as Alexis’ friend, it sounds like she turns on Alexis too!

            • Powell says:

              If its true Alexis better find her some new friends cause every time she introduces one to the show they turn on her.

      • Powell says:

        I can’t stand Tamra. She and Vicki always want to know “whose teamare you on. Ugh!

    • lizzle says:

      I always thought Sheree was hilarious, especially in her talking heads. She was quick-witted and she really didn’t do anything that bothered me. I liked her friendship with Miss Lawrence… even if it was just for the show. Those two were a riot together!

      • Powell says:

        She was but how much longer could we watch the dirt on her moms property where she is building her house? She tried to get her daughter married so that they could have a Bravo wedding but the boyfriend wasn’t ready for it. We’ve been waiting for She by Sheree since S1. She became boring. Iyanla Vanzant w/Sheree & Bob is April 13th.

      • realhousewifeva says:

        Her and Lawrence don’t talk anymore, from what I’ve read. Lawrence follows the cameras, apparently. lol

  3. I tried to post a comment yesterday about Brandi but it didn’t go thru. I love ya’ll but sometimes the blanket statements get to me a little. None of us can say for sure if any of these women on these shows are definitely lying or not, none of us can say what is in their heads. For someone to LIE they have to be aware that they are purposefully saying something that is untrue. And the fact is that on these shows everyone has their perspectives. I don’t hate any of the women on these shows, I think they are each of them coming from their own place, their own experiences and their own perspectives.

    I’ve seen a lot of “there’s no way she could have thought she was being sued” Why not?

    I believe that Adrienne and Paul believed and were being truthful when they said they weren’t suing her. But Brandi’s case I also believe that she was not lying. I believe that she felt she was in real danger of being sued. Here’s why.

    I DO believe that the letter to the friend mentioned Brandi and threatened a lawsuit. Why? Because that has happened to me! A very similar scenario to the one on the show has happened to me more than once!

    There are all sorts of lawyers out there, will all kinds of tactics. This is what’s called a scare tactic. I think Brandi did get scared. I think the letter said that the friend and Brandi needed to show up to a meeting and sign a paper “or else” That’s what Brandi said! She said this exact thing at the reunion!

    The fact that we didn’t get the whole clear story of exactly how the threat happened while the show was going on is, I think, due to bad editing because they were scurrying around Adrienne’s demands that the “secret” not be aired. Hard to get a clear picture in a case like that.

    But basically if someone says that “if you don’t do this I’m going to sue you.” And you decide that you are NOT going to comply with their terms, well then the next logical assumption is that if they stick to their threat, that they are suing you!

    I have lived thru this almost exact scenario several times. (Who knew being an artist could be so risky LOL).

    I’ve had legal threats levied against me thru a letter given to someone else! I’ve had legal threats made against me directly if I didn’t do what an individual wanted me to do (or not do). All in the name of business. Nothing ever came of it. I have an excellent attorney and we saw it for what it was, bullying.

    Anyhow, just my .02

    • lizzle says:

      Thanks for putting it into perspective. And that is awful that an artist has to deal with so many lawsuits… who woulda thunk? I guess I just don’t understand why Brandi didn’t say, “My friend recieved a letter with my name in it with stipulations to do what Adrienne wants or else I will be sued” Maybe she was protecting her friend or maybe Bravo told her to leave the friend out because it might confuse the audience… your right… we don’t know. I think this issue that is so frequently debated here…. really isn’t much of an issue anywhere else… even at the reunion, it was glossed over. Adrienne messed up by not letting this play out and hiding behind her lawyers…. because of that…. we will never know the other side of the “truth” or her intentions and that is why it is hard to debate.

    • T-Rex says:

      I totally agree. Here is the other part, Bravo producers were also sent a letter from a lawyer to remove the information from filming. NO WAY Bravo removes that information without something from a lawyer. So lawyers were involved in several different forums, and my cousin is a lawyer and she told me that if I were ever in this situation(cannot imagine I ever would be), but that I better call her and lawyer up right away.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        If Brandi would have told the truth the issue would be dead. She perpetrated the fraud by crying lawsuit and letter all season. It was the major storyline and it was all a lie. Brandi knew it andBravo knew it and they both used it to their advantage. That doesn’t make Brandi the”truth cannon” that she called herself.

    • nyc mama says:

      I agree as well. Last night we were discussing this with some attorneys who were telling “war stories” similar to this scenario. Brandi was indeed under the threat of lawsuit and had every reason to be scared and wasn’t lying. The lawyers used what is apparently a common intimidation tactic. Even more frightening when the lawyers involved are high powered corporate lawyers like the Maloofs have on retainer.

      I posted my thoughts last night on this as well and stated it was a move by Adrienne to allow herself to say she never sent Brandi a letter when in fact, by inserting her she did.

      Glad it worked out for you as well Brigid.

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        How would Adrienne know that Brandi would say anything about the letter? If Adrienne sent the letter to Geneva so Brandi couldn’t say she got a letter Adrienne would have to know that Brandi was going to lie about the letter and lawsuit all season long-I don’t find Adrienne to be that bright.
        The bottom is that we don’t know what the letter said and we don’t know how Brandi was mentioned in the letter. We only know what Brandi told us-and that wasn’t much.

        • nyc mama says:

          Jill, I have expressed my opinion on this ad nauseum that even I don’t want to hear it again. . All my posts have basically addressed it all so unless something new comes out there isn’t really anything left for me to say that I haven’t done already. I don’t have a problem that others don’t agree with me.

        • Exactly. You haven’t read the letter. Neither have I. So I think for you to state categorically she’s lying is an over reach.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Great comment, Brigid. So reasonable. I like that. I do!!! Add me to the group that doesn’t think Brandi was lying. Some of us post things with “absolute certainty”, “facts”, etc. When we all know that none of us are truly privy to the facts. We are entitled to our opinions, however, and some of just like to repeat our opinions over and over again. I’m not sure why,…for emphasis? If it bothers you just keep “cursoring” by… it’s not worth it and nobody really changes each other’s minds.

      Months will go by and then I suddenly feel the urge to say (FOR THE UMPTEENTH TIME) that I can’t forgive Kyle for what she did to her sister in that limo Season 1. I don’t hate Kyle, but I can’t get over that. Why do I post that over and over again…I will try not to…but, I know I will find the perfect opportunity to do so,…or maybe it will be out of the clear blue sky. And there I go again.

      Just watch – it will be days,…weeks…months.. without mention of Brandi and then boom…here it comes..the “.Brandi is a liar” comments will start up again. Those who disagree will once again argue their points and so forth. It’s just the way it is here. No harm intended, we just want to be heard and we want to be clear on our “positions”…heh heh heh!!! So far, it hasn’t hurt her popularity with most of the viewers or the sales figures on her book. Eventually, I think the tide will turn for her. Hopefully not, it must be hard to be hated by the viewing public (Adrienne, Kyle..). Perhaps the money and fame soften the blow a ittle bit.

      Sorry you’ve been threatened to be sued, mentioned in letters that threatened lawsuits, that must be so scary.

      • windycitywondering2 says:

        So sorry you have had to deal with legal asshattery!
        I don’t think Brandi is lying either. I think Bravo has done their editing magic to make her look like she might be and that Adrienne is “spliting hairs” about not suing Brandi. Because the letter to Brandi’s friend names Brandi then Brandi had to get a lawyer! And with Adrienne getting legal with Bravo they have every right to change their storylines while adhereing to the specifics in Adrienne’s attempt to control her storyline! IMHO, Adrienne’s attempt to shut Brandi up backfired big time.

    • HuskerHuny says:

      Until that letter is made public (and I’m guessing that it never will be), no one other than the lawyers and individuals directly involved know the absolute truth as to what was said and by whom.

      No one should be called a liar at this point. I do believe threats were made, directly or indirectly. Should I read something more into it in that Adrienne wouldn’t come on the reunion to at least explain or defend herself concerning this letter and other actions? Is not the truth on her side? I’ve yet to see Brandi run and hide when confronted with this issue which seems to me she has nothing to hide. Two sides to every story . . .

      In any case, this entire incident is really getting tiresome and I’m sure that sometime on the reunion tonight, it will be drug over the coals again without anything getting resolved.

      • BB says:

        I don’t think it’s going to be mentioned again tonight. I think they are over it and ready to move on. So am I. I don’t think Brandi lied. Others do. And neither the twain shall meet . Nothing I say is going to change anyone’s opinion about it and probably nothing anyone else says is going to change mine. Brandi does and says things I don’t like, but I still like her.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        I don’t think Adrienne could have showed up to the reunion…just to talk about a lawsuit that was never fired…or a letter that was never sent. Regardless of what Brandi assumed or thought it all meant….

        I think the reunion is going to be brutal tonight…and I am curious that the outcome of Brandi’s ‘bomb’ is.

    • Trashy T says:

      Thanks Brigid… I feel the same way. Adrienne was always claiming there was no letter. There was a letter. It wasn’t sent to Brandi but she was mentioned in it. For all those who claim there was no need for Brandy to get legal advice, think again. Especially when you are in the relative position economically that Brandi is with The Hoof. I like Brandi even tho I wish at times she held her tongue as she gives too much ammunition to those who dislike her. I think she is basically a nice woman who wants to have fun and isn’t calculated like some of the others. I think that she is still scrambling emotionally after seeing her marriage break up. I think she did everything in her power to keep Eddie happy and thought she had her perfect dream life until the rug was pulled out from under her. I hope she finds a wonderful man who loves her and grounds her.. I’m just a sucker for happy endings! And I wish her well which I don’t do for most of the other housewives.

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Hi Trashy!!! I got nothing else, just thought how rarely I get to say that..”Hi Trashy!!” funny name! 🙂

        • Trashy T says:

          Hi Lainey…. my nickname comes from the shameful fact that I buy the rapid trash every week. My first name starts with a T so I became Trashy T thanks to my quilting buddies. I started on the road to this name early on, being a monthly devotee of Motion Picture, Modern Screen and Photoplay. I used to kill at Trivial Pursuit. Unfortunately my steel trap mind is now more like a clogged up garbage disposal! I’m even looking forward to OC and Vicki s new chin. I need a life.

    • pat says:

      Brigid, very well said. And lawsuits generally start with a letter, used as a scare tactic. You comply with my demand, or there will be a “big fat lawsuit.” The letter sent to a 3rd party, naming Brandi, allowed Adrienne to stay on the show but also threaten a cast mate. In the previous season, Taylor wasn’t included on the Hawaii trip, which was right after the email, with threat of lawsuit, she and Russell sent to Camille.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        A letter wasn’t sent to a 3 party in lieu of Brandi. Now that a little more information has come out from Brandi herself , A letter was sent to Geneva threatening Gevene; Saying that Geneve was under breach of contract.

        While some people think that Brandi might not have been lying. Personally I do….I think she purposely blew up the situation to cause issues and drama. On top of which it went from spending 2k to over 10K in short order…for WHAT. There wasn’t a lawsuit filed….and Adrienne’s attorneys never contacted hers. So maybe Ken should demand that Brandi’s friend pay the bills since it was that attorney he/she was talking to the whole time.

        If someone wants to beleive Brandi or give Brandi the benefit of the doubt, that is all well and good but it still has to boil down to Adrienne did not lie. She did not (or her attorney) send Brandi a letter. There was also no law suit filed.
        I totally get the contempt for Adrienne…I really do…but is is entitled to use the courts if she needs to and has legitimate cause. If Geneva was taking private info and tell Brandi about it….Aidrenne has a right to take action.

        • nyc mama says:

          When was it clarified that the letter was referring to a breach of contract? That isn’t what Brandi said at the reunion. No one (public) knows the contents of the letter we are all just speculating. The only thing Brandi clarified was that a letter was sent to Geneva’s lawyer by Adrienne’s and then his lawyer contacted Brandi’s because the letter said that if they didnt all go to a meeting (including Brandi) they (Adrienne) would go forward with a lawsuit. I just rewatched the show and that is all Brandi said.

          I disagree that she is entitled to use the courts especially since so many abuse our legal system. Just because you can sue doesn’t mean you should. We see this abuse ofttimes and imo this is one of them. A phone call should have been the first step and resolution sought by different ways before this. But Adrienne, in her own admission, seems to use her lawyers more than your average person.

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            I beleive both Brandi and Adrienne both said that was what it was about. That they thought Brandi’s friend was giving her info….and that because she was an employee…she was under breech of contact.

            Mauricio told Brandi to pick up the phone and was told to STFU about it.

            How did Aidrenne abuse the legal system in this matter….(as the whole CPS thing I can see your point).

            Mauricio told Brandi to pick up the phone and was told to STFU about it.

            Even though the Maloof Empire seems to be crumbling, given the amount of business and holdings they have, it’s not shocking that they would have lawyers on retainer.

            • nyc mama says:

              I agree that because of their “empire” they have lawyers on retainer. Even Adrienne said in her talking head it was normal for her to go to her attorney’s to ask for advise unlike most other people.

              I am not sure what Mauricio telling Brandi to call Adrienne has to do with anything. He certainly didn’t give Camille the same advice in season 2 and it was just a letter from Russell threatening.

              I think that Brandi may have been advised by her lawyer to not contact Adrienne since they were all summoned to this pow wow. Brandi said she sent Adrienne an email apologizing and cc’d all the other women although it wasn’t soon enough for Adrienne.

              Mauricio inserted himself in something that had nothing to do with him and his advice meant little since he is not a lawyer and wasn’t privy to the content of the letter at the time.

      • Contessa says:

        Pat,that is a BRILLIANT summation….the letter sent to a 3rd party,naming Brandi,allowed Ad to stay on the show but also threaten a cast mate. I forgot – they can’t sue one another. That was a brilliant tactic by Ad’s lawyer, going around someone else to attack Brandi. THANK YOU for pointing out the obvious!

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          I really don’t see how it obvious. Adrienne had an issue with someone who worked for her…and who she believe was giving information to Brand despite having signed a confidentially agreement. Honestly….if someone were to sue Chef Bernie…..for all the crap he says….I think everyone would agree that it had it’s own merit and not a thinly veiled way of going after Ad, despite our suspicions that he is her lackey.

          • nyc mama says:

            How do you know there was a confidentiality agreement? What was Geneva’s role in Adrienne’s life? What was her job? The only thing we know is that Geneva worked for Adrienne but we don’t know in what capacity. No one knows if Geneva had a confidentiality agreement with Adrienne. None of that is clear or has ever been confirmed. I just rewatched the reunion and none of that was discussed or clarified to us, the viewers.

            • rabblerouser2010R says:

              It’s pretty standard that non disclosure contracts are signed in white collar type jobs, or for those under the employment high profile types. If in this case one wasn’t..it’s because someone f-ed up. In pretty much every white collar job Either way, Ad and her attorneys felt that their was a breech of trust.

              I hope I am not coming across as snarky in posts…it’s the stuff that is happening in background of my house that is irritating me. It’s oldest DD birthday today…but she had a fever last night and was coughing all night. She also has been channeling her inner Malana and saying “It’s my birthday and I can do whatever I want” . Youngest woke me up in the middle of the night….then slept in this AM. Now they are both up…they were fighting over a juice box and the computer while DH was on a conference call.

              And I am having a calgon take me a way moment….

              • lizzle says:

                Oh.. I know how you feel! The lil one has been trying my last nerve today… maybe it is something in the cosmos. These are the last few days of Passover and the kid’s school break… so I am holding on until then. There are so many holidays in Judiasm… I just had Easter… one day and then it’s over. It has been interesting to learn about it all to say the least… but I am digressing.

                I had a speech therapy appointment for the lil one today and I met my boyfriend at the doctor’s office (only to find out it was cancelled…arrrgh!)… the first thing I said to my BF was that I am losing my mind today! The kids are off the wall… fighting, defiant and not caring that they have behavior charts they are suppose to adhere to every day. The reward/ consequence system has left the building folks!

                • RabbleRouser says:

                  I am glad that there are other moms here that are either going through the same thing or at least can remember when they did.

                  I just got back from the grocery store with the little one…and I had not even put the groceries away before they got into it. They were fighting over a colored picture…and the little one was complaining that the older one wouldn’t’ leave her alone…and the oldest was upset that little sissy wanted nothing to do with her. Except that the younger one literally SHRIEKS and the oldest is so stubborn and would’t back off.

                  DH couldn’t take it and retreated to the garage to have a smoke (YUK).

                  But I managed to calm them down….

                  Let me know how your youngest childs speech therapy goes. As you all know…I have been there….I am still there……loll.

                • rabblerouser2010R says:

                  I just wrote a reply but my account was acting a little wonky and now I don’t see it…

                  But quickly..it’s nice to know that I am not alone in some of the frustrations of parenting.
                  Please let me know how your childs speech therapy goes.

    • Powell says:

      Brigid what you said makes perfect sense. Sorry you’ve had to deal w/scare tactics. But knowledge is power. Thks for sharing.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      I also don’t think Brandi was totally (or purposely) lying, but the Brandi haters are going to go on and on and on…and on about it because they hate brandi. LOL.

      I do think Brandi at first was scared and thought she was going to get sued b/c of information she was hearing from the lawyers and her friend Geneva…I even saw her tweet about it in real time last year, so I don’t think she was just lying about it. Later, I do think things were cleared up in that respect,but there was still the lawyers being involved with Bravo and Brandi I’m sure was in that mess as well. Bravo won’t talk about it, so people will just have to speculate.

      In one of Adrienne’s blogs she wrote this:
      “A few of the women are comparing this situation with the disagreement between Russell and Camille. For me there is one key difference and that is the direct involvement of my innocent loved ones who were NEVER supposed to be part of the drama. With Russell and Camille all parties involved were adults and capable of defending themselves. Any mother would agree that protecting young children is of the utmost importance. I still believe that friends don’t sue friends but Brandi has made it abundantly clear that she is not my friend.”

      It wasn’t until 2 blogs later that she denied it completely.
      To me, that, coupled with Paul saying that “Brandi was warned” makes it obvious there was some kind of threat concerning Brandi. I think once Brandi didn’t cower to the threat and got her lawyers involved, that Adrienne and her lawyers backed off because they knew a lawsuit against Brandi would be frivolous anyways, but I do believe for sure that they DID try to get Brandi to stop talking about them.

      In the end, Adrienne is gone, so I’m happy 🙂

      • LaineyLainey says:

        Great post, rhva….hey re: Paul and Ade trying to get Brandi to stop talking…you know, THEY TRIED. I imagine at this point in her life…MANY HAVE TRIED.

        • kit9 says:

          I dont hate Brandi and therefore think she’s lying. I don’t like Brandi because she a liar. And, and as*hole, but let’s focus on the lying. She lied at last year’s reunion, again involving Adrienne. Then, her ‘story’ about a so-called ambush planned by Adrienne against Lisa evolved and Brandi had to backtrack when challenged. And, don’t you find it odd that Brandi didn’t mention anything about her claim that Adrienne tried to get her fired from the show? Certainly, that’s the nastier charge against Adrienne and more justifies Brandi’s attacks on her…so why not a word about it at the reunion? The reunion is when you can talk about the show’s behind the scenes antics, etc. Yet, Brandi never mentioned it. Why? I think because she knows Andy would contradict her.

    • kit9 says:

      Sorry, but she lied. Repeatedly. And, that’s not my opinion, it’s a fact She didn’t say, ‘my friend is being sued and I’m worried about being sued, too’. She said, she was being sued and that later that she was threatened with being sued in a letter sent to her by Adrienne…..all of which is false and SHE KNEW it was false. She was never being sued, she was never threatened with being sued. And, at the reunion, she never even claimed that the letter sent to her friend threatened her. Don’t you think she would have said that at the reunion had it been the fact? If that were the case, btw, she WOULD HAVE BROUGHT the letter, which she didn’t.

      • kit9 says:

        One other thing, it would have taken one meeting with a lawyer to explain to her that the burden for slander/defamation is extremely high and very very difficult to win…it’s not just proving what someone said is false.. you have to also prove that the person saying it intended to inflict harm to a person’s reputation and usually requires proof of loss of income as result of the damage to someone’s reputation. So, why the alleged tens of thousands of dollars on attorney’s fees? At this point, until I see bills, given how much she lied about this whole mess, I’m assuming she lied about that, too.

      • Brigid says:

        WOW. I think anyone stating that anything about a person they don’t know on a reality show is fact, is unethical and unkind.

  4. Sam says:

    About what the Besties got wrong: They didn’t realize that the last image on their horseback ride was focused on the bird atop the hippo. There was no hippo tile, but there was a rhino. The first time around, they put the bird down next to last, then the rhino as a substitute for the hippo. (I think one of the girls remarked on it being a substitution, but I could be mistaken.) The second time they put the bird tile above the rhino, because in the cutout the bird was on the rhino’s back. The camera close-upped on this odd tile arrangement, to show viewers that this was the problem.

    Chuck would have made the same mistake, by the way, but Wynona stopped him from using the rhino instead of the hippo and said something like, “They must have meant just the bird, because they didn’t give us a hippo.” What would he do without her?

    • Sam says:

      I meant to say “because in the image (the one they saw on horseback) the bird was on the rhino’s back.” Guess I need more coffee to get my brain going this morning!

    • melthehound says:

      What would Chuck do without Wynona? Lose. I joke about her inability to run but I do think she’s the brains of that outfit. She is certainly the only one who can read and follow instructions. She must be getting in better shape from the exercise because I’ve noticed, her Run has gotten better.

      No matter how they laid out the rhino and the bird in the detour, Besties still would have been wrong because twice, they missed seeing the ostrich (or emu or whatever that big bird was) cutout. It was kind of buried amongst the brush. They needed 10 total and used the rhino and bird as two to fill that gap. Where they really got it wrong was in switching tasks. They did show on the show that they could get the brawn task done and everything else being the same, newlyweds
      would have been gone instead of them.

      • Sam says:

        You’re absolutely right about Wynona being the brains of that outfit — but that ain’t sayin’ much! And yes, her run has definitely gotten better.

        I didn’t notice the Besties missing the ostrich, but it makes sense given that they kept sticking that rhino in with the bird. I’m not sorry to see them go, though. And yet I wish the Newlyweds could have gone too, because the guy was an absolute jerk during the donkey part. Those poor little guys! I hate seeing animals put in situations like that.

  5. Good Monday Morning! I hope your week starts out perfect!

    Thank you NMD, BB, RamonaCoaster & MTH for another day of excellent recaps. I don’t watch these shows….but I love reading every word of your blogs and it starts my day off just right! You are all so appreciated!!

    Now, I have to share a dream I had last night. Because all of you on the blog were in it! We were all “sittin’ on the dock of the bay”, I know not where, but the water was a cobalt blue and the weather fine. A large group we were, and there was food and Jack Daniels shots were flowing. (I don’t know why that either as I do not drink Jack Daniels!). But the mood was good. Diva, in her flowing goddess gown and cropped red hair was introducing me to everyone and pointing out who was who. I don’t recall what you all looked like but Lainey Lainey was front and center in her tie-dyed shirt, hippie beads and blue tinted John Lennon glasses and flowing brown hair! I know that is likely not at all what you look like but you were rockin’ it in the dream girl. And Mel the Hound was standing guard for us. Vague images of all of you still lurk in my mind, and you are gorgeous! We were all having such a good time…and I curse my weak old lady bladder for making me get up in the middle of the dream. I went back to bed trying to wrap the wisps of memory back around me and go back to the dock with you all, but it floated away. I just had to tell you about it though, and say THANKS for a lovely time!! 😀 😀 😀 😀

    I hope you had a lovely holiday yesterday and that the spring weather abounds where you are. Have a wonderful Monday!!

    New post, “The Beauty of Renewal”, is up at my place. Enjoy!

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I love your dream Mar!!! Especially the part about Lainey and her hippiness-I never pictured her that way but know I do!!!

    • obx1 says:

      What a great dream MarDrag. Sometimes, I try to picture what some of the LynnFam looks like too and I’m probably way off target, but it’s fun doing it just the same.

      • Jill and BB…it was such a kick because all of your characters were there….and I think we all have a picture in our minds about what each of us might look like. But I knew your personalities…and with my dreams being so vivid…it felt like I was really there. So fun….and Lainey was a blast! Life o’ the party! 😀

    • LaineyLainey says:

      OMG – I will be laughing all the live-long day about this dream. super groovy. Keep on truckin’, Lynnfam!!!

    • Kansas Girl says:

      I just want to confirm that I look EXACTLY like I do in your dream!

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Ahhhh too sweet,

  6. Lulu says:

    Good Morning!!!! For once I was able to watch an entire episode of RHOA. Finally the finale! This season just dragged on. Why the 20 episodes? The party looked lame and what was worse is Kenya freaking out over Porsha’s costume. Oh the drama! What is up with the strange 80’s makeup/hair at the reunion???

    Anyone watch Walking dead? Care to recap? Thanks to the baby I can’t watch the show.

    What is wrong with Andy? He looks sick. I’ve noticed that gradually over the past few months he’s looking more frail. Wondering is he battling something?

    • jezzibel says:

      he’s been battling obnoxious housewives for the last what 5 yrs, of course he no longer looks peppy.

      • Cathy Connor says:

        Morning my friends !!! Hope everyone had a nice Easter weekend… Last weekend I happen to catch a Real World Las Vegas marathon. Steven kept reminding me of Andy I would love to see a side by side of them Maybe its just me but they look alike to me…
        Remember August 16th and 17th Im trying to do a get together here in Chicago for the American Heart Assoc. in honor of my sister ! You can put a name with a face think it would be fun to meet each other . Any thoughts or ideas welcome !! Please let me know if its something that you folks would like to attend .. Need a ballpark idea of numbers just a yes or maybe would be fine… Have a great day and as always great job on blogs !! (HUGS)

        • designernailsdiana says:

          I think it’s a great idea and maybe Mar can see what we all actually look like then. LOL

        • Lulu says:

          Cathy I think it’s a wonderful idea!! Unfortunately I no longer live in Chicago. Aside from that I am pregnant with my second due in May. I don’t think I’ll be mobile for the next 5 years 😦

  7. HuskerHuny says:

    I woke up to a really good April Fool’s trick in Huskerland this morning. Yes, my yard was covered with snow after having temperatures in the high 60s the past few days. Fortunately I did get some of the winter leaves raked up yesterday and out of my flower beds. The weatherperson says that this should be it for winter 2012/2013. So looking forward to getting some flowers potted and my tomatoes in the ground. My tulips and hyacinths should be blooming any day and my lilac bush not too far behind. All in all, not too bad! Happy April to everyone!

    • BB says:

      That’s a cruel April Fool’s joke to wake up to.

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Oh, man, that’s awful! It was predicted to reach all the way here, but so far it’s just colder than we’d like. No snow. I hope yours is melting fast and that you don’t have to shovel.

      • HuskerHuny says:

        No shoveling but my windshield wipers were frozen! My husband didn’t put my car in the garage so I did a bit of scraping this morning. First and I hope the last time I do that this season! The Husker’s football spring game is this Saturday so hoping for sunny and warm weather. Looks like there will be 50,000 some people there, but not me! Will be watching on the BTN network instead. GO BIG RED!

  8. jezzibel says:

    why is Nene getting a spinoff for her wedding…..I seem to recall that she and greg never actually pulled the trigger on their marriage…so she is remarrying the same guy she was already married too…this rates a spinoff…seriously!! SMH

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I’ve been wondering the same thing. How unoriginal. Nene and Greg are genuinely funn. Plus, I doubt we will be exposed to side-boob so that’s one positive.

  9. LaineyLainey says:

    Did anyone else catch the preview for “Don’t be Tardy…” Kim Z teaching Brielle how to drive? Wow, another “original” bit of programming…let’s see where did we see this already?? Kyle and her daughter, right???? Kim likes to be the cute one…so, what is she gonna do, teach her while topless? Flash the truck drivers? Brielle is a cute and funny kid, …it’s just so unoriginal. Haven’t decided if I’m going to bother to watch this…just not sure, yet.

  10. pat says:

    So I hyper analyzed Bravo’s comment for Porsha at the end of the finale. “Kordell filed for divorce.” Was the brevity because they had to scramble last minute to add that? It will be interesting to see if Kordell makes an appearance at the reunion, and/or if Porsha gives any indication that they were separated. I wonder if they have been separated for some time? And Bravo is ticked about being misled, yet again? hmmm

    • LA Debra says:

      Andy and Kandi made the comment that Porsha fiercely defended her marriage at the reunion. And so hearing about the divorce made it especially hard to watch the shows now.

      • pat says:

        Oh, yikes. Wonder if they were only very recently separated, and Porsha really was blindsided by the butt hook. Or another Bravo sham. Time will tell.

        • princesspindy says:

          The reunion was already done, he did it after, probably planned so she had no platform to bitch him out!!! …..ippho, allegedly!

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I am glad I am not the only one that thought it was a bit of a disservice to Portia that nothing more was said. I mean..what if Kordell didn’t file for divorce..would her screen have been blank.

      I hope they keep Portia around next season, I think it might be interesting to see of she grows now that she isn’t under Kordell’s thumb.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      I think that’s so cruel that that was all they used for her final comment. But maybe they didn’t know what else to say since her whole storyline (besides fighting with Kenya) centered around her marriage and having children. But couldn’t they have at least said “She continues to focus on maintaining her Grandfather’s legacy by carrying on with his charity” or something? Anything? So mean.

      Kordell does not show up to the reunion. At the time he tweeted that it was because he already had prior committments, but Kenya talked to TMZ and said they all thought it was weird when he didn’t come to the reunion and all the other men did.

      • rabblerouser2010R says:

        Yes, “She continues to focus on maintaining her Grandfather’s legacy by carrying on with his charity” would have been so nice..the ending they gave her was almost like telling her to kick rocks.

  11. Stars99 says:

    Please, please, please,PLEASE – Someone other than me has to watch RHOC… cuz who will I argue with about my attempt at recapping it? However, I do actually loathe all of them on the show – so this is fair warning that there’s going to be a whole lotta snark goin’ on… lolol… cuz really… I really don’t like anyone from last year’s cast…. and since I actually live in the OC… it really makes me cranky they pretend to represent this area… ugh…. please, please please… I’ll be your best friend forever! lolol…

    • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

      I will be watching-I love to hate Tamra!!!

      • BB says:

        At least we will be on the same page this time around Jill.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          One more week and we are getting back together BB-I think BH has a lost footage episode next week and the it’s you and me together again!!!!

      • Stars99 says:

        Yippie! We can love to hate Tamra together! Cuz she really puts me over the edge… I mean seriously… over the edge… lol

      • kit9 says:

        I used to love to hate her, too. But, after last season insanely insulting and obvious faking of a rekindled friendship with Gretchen-I’m done. I have a tiny speck of truth in my reality shows, lol. It will be hard but I really am going to try not to watch this season.

    • BB says:

      OMG! You can lay down some snark and those bitches deserve every bit of snark you can throw at them. I’ll tell you what. I might DVR it and watch just so I can snark about them too. But only because YOU are recapping it Stars and you asked so nicely.

      • Stars99 says:

        Awww…. kumbayah, BB… You’ve done so much for us already… I almost hate to have you make your head explode by watching OC… I’m seriously worried that we all might spontaneously cumbust at some point… lol… but let the snarkfest begin! lol

    • HuskerHuny says:

      I’ll snark with you Stars99! What else is there to watch? Watching the OC ladies makes me know for sure that I have am in fact living a very good life even without the money, houses, cars, plastic surgery, injections, fashion, vacations . . . their phoniness makes me feel very good! Wow, is that twisted or what? See ya here tomorrow Stars!

      • LaineyLainey says:

        I won’t watch it, but I will READ anything you write.

        • Stars99 says:

          Awww…. see this is why I love you so much, Lainey Lainey so nice we say it twice!

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            I won’t watch either…but I will look forward to reading all about it.

            • Stars99 says:

              I love your comments, rabble… I get how people are refusing to watch them, honest I do… I attempted to watch a couple of the old episodes that they’ve been re-running… and it makes me a lil sick… so I may need to medicate before watching myself… lol

      • Stars99 says:

        Shimmy, shimmy to the left, shimmy, shimmy to the right! Yes, they remind us how great our lives are, don’t they? Looking forward to it! = )

    • Orson says:

      Um, do I understand you’re asking someone to argue with you?

      • Stars99 says:

        lol Orson… well, we ALL know I have an opinion or two… arguing is fun especially if it’s about this particular franchise… and yes, bring it on, Orson! lol…

    • T-Rex says:

      Awww Stars99 I Heart you, but I can’t stomach watching the OldCrones especially TrailerTrashTrampySue, but I will read the blogs here. That’s all I can give for this trainwreck.

      • Stars99 says:

        I heart you, too, my dinosaur friend… your continuing health is more important than this show… = ) Your best is all we can ask…lolol… (and I don’t blame you one lil bit…lol)

    • windycitywondering2 says:

      Star99 – I will read your recap and I am thankful that you are watching RHOC because I just can’t! So snark on my friend, snark on!

      • Stars99 says:

        I completely understand not being able to watch it… there are just lines that we can’t cross for our own personal safety reasons, aren’t there? But whether we actually watch or we don’t… we can certainly “snark on!” Looking forward to it!

        • Contessa says:

          I will bit the bullet and watch oc – who the hell am I kidding I watch all the trashy HW show. But the OC ladies drive me bats a bit more than the others. I love to hate me some Trampra. She is Bravo gold as she has no moral compass in that little itty bitty pea brain, that I believe has been partially eaten away by cheap bleach on her straw like hair.

          • thedesigndiva2 says:

            I watch OC cause I find it humorous…. lol lol nothing serious or likeable about any of them…but I do find myself laughing at them for some strange reason….

            • Stars99 says:

              lol diva… yeah… it would be humorous if it wasn’t so tragic! lolol… I can’t find anything likable about them, either… it will be fun to laff at them!

          • Stars99 says:

            Completely falls on the floor laffin’… Yes, we all will get hazard pay for watching this year for sure! They drive me bats, too which is why I was initially hesitant in recapping it – cuz I knew I would be way too snarky for words… I just wouldn’t be able to help myself – but i’m sure there are fans out there that may not appreciate the snark… but really, it’s impossible to recap it objectively. Not this franchise… not me, anyway… lol

          • $25,000 says:

            I love this post and feel the same about Tamra.

        • pat says:

          Last season I got sucked in, partly because I was fascinated (and creeped out) by Crooks Ayers. Not sure if he’s back this season. I love Brianna and liked that she could see through his b.s. I’m also curious to see if I still think Eddie appears to be marrying the wrong gender. Major feminine vibe from him. I also started picking up that he might be a little bit controlling. Isn’t that what Tamra hated about her last hubs? Oh, no, it was that he ran out of the cashola.

          • Stars99 says:

            lol Pat, I get sucked in as well – and Brooks completely gives me the creeps, too… (shudders) … It will be interesting to see what storylines they go with – but I’m already tired of the whole Tamra marriage thang… ugh… it should be interesting! = )

    • Oh Stars99….you just made me consider going back on my word about not watching OC! I lived there too, and can’t stomach those women. BUT….I did not know you were recapping it, so I MAY have to swallow my bile and watch a minute or two (only on dvr cuz I won’t add to their ratings) so I can snark and belly laugh with you on your recaps.

      Bravo owes you money for this!! It looks like there is a few of us who weren’t going to watch until you decided to recap. Ask for a BIG bonus!! 😛

      • Stars99 says:

        Awww… Kumbayah, Barnabas! I think we all need to be medicated in some way in order to watch it… Not sure if I need to go out and purchase some extra Pepto Bismal or not… but fortunately I do have some chocolate… and chocolate always makes things better for me… lolol… lova ya, MarDrag!

    • realhousewifeva says:

      I’m over OC.

      • Stars99 says:

        VA – lol… I don’t blame you.. I am too… oh wait… I’ll be watching… lololol

    • princesspindy says:

      I will probably watch, I just can’t help myself. But I don’t know if I will be able to sit for a whole show at one time, maybe doses….I couldn’t watch much last season but I will sacrifice for you Stars!!!

      • Stars99 says:

        Awww, Tiara… that would be an amazing sacrifice! You bring up a good point – is it better to watch the whole thing at once… or watch it in small chunks? When I hafta drink yucky medicine – I tend to hold my nose and down it as quickly as I can so it’s over fast… lolol… it’s too bad we can’t fast forward and still understand what’s going on… lol… not sure how we’re going to get through this…but fortunately, I’ll have chocolate on hand…

        • princesspindy says:

          oh yeah, chocolate, well, see, I decided to start with no sugar today…not April Fools, 😦 😦 So I am off to the “Natural” store to find some dried fruit substitutes, so I guess I won’t be able to watch ahahhhhaaa!!! AFs

          • Stars99 says:

            lol… yeah… don’t know if dried fruit would be enough incentive for me to watch RHOC. It’s chocolate… or a nice iced beverage. lol

          • djprincessc says:

            Princess Pindy, idk if you’ve ever done the whole no sugar thing, but I have for years up until recently but dried fruit will probably make you crave sugar. What are dried fruit substitutes?? When I would cut out sugar I would eat more nuts and I would even make sugar free chocolate pudding or get no sugar ice cream bars and It would work. Just a thought for you!! 🙂

            • princesspindy says:

              I have a real sweet tooth and I have decided since I am working out that 2 or 3 candy bars a night are not a good idea….if I don’t buy them I won’t eat them. So I am just looking to cut out that kind of sugar….if it makes sense. I am not going to be all crazy about it but enough is enough!! I have done the whole wheat, sugar, dairy thing and all it did was make me really skinny, lol. I just need a little nosh….raisins oh and I bought some dates….hopefully that will be enough…

    • djprincessc says:

      I’ll be watching!!!! I can’t stand Tamra but theres no way I can’t not watch a real housewives show! lol.

    • $25,000 says:

      I’ll watch with you Stars! I love watching those crazy women!

  12. Lulu says:

    Can someone tell me two things: 1, At what age wearing is a mini skirt inappropriate? 2, What happens to your face after prolonged use of botox?

    • Kansas Girl says:

      Isn’t botox said to eventually lodge in your brain?
      My answer to #1 is that the point where your legs no longer look good (which might be always), it’s time to give up mini skirts.

    • T-Rex says:

      1. when your boobs meet your waistline, j/kidding, but my opinion to this question isn’t just about age, it’s about whether you look good in the item, i.e. (is statement may offend some folks it’s my opinion and I am not some stick thin anorexic) I was at one time in my life a size 20, but no miniskirts should be made for a size 20! Also, if you have varicose veins and spider veins really saggy legs, maybe not the greatest look, but to each his own.
      2. Botox, my sister was a big “botoxer” up until a year and half ago when her forehead FROZE for almost 6 months, it still looks a bit weird just because I know where to look. So she said it wasn’t worth the risk, other folks have had other portions of their face “freeze” and cause permanent damage. I would never use the stuff, but fortunately I don’t have a reason to, I got the good genes and don’t have wrinkles yet. Oh side note, EVERYONE that knows you or has seen you will comment when you “TOX” it’s definitely noticeable to someone you see on a regular basis. My sister almost massacred my husband who upon seeing her the first time she had it done remarked with these immortal words “what the hell happened to your face”. Now, my husband is a tell it like it is kind of guy, if you ask him if you look good, fat, old he is going to answer the question, his motto is if you don’t want to know the answer don’t ask him. He is not mean he will tell you if stuff looks really good too. My sister thought the TOX wasn’t that noticeable, nope everyone noticed and she looked very strange with all that crap in her face. To each his own though. By the way since her face is mostly back to normal she looks SO much better and more natural and gets more compliments now.

      • Lulu says:

        Lol!!! T-rex to me botox looks strange. It’s odd talking to someone who’s face doesn’t move. Freaks me out.

        Just curious when they do a “where are they now in the HW’s.” I can imagine majority of the women OC and BH especially. With severe disfigured faces from all that botox surgery.

        As for the mini skirt if you are in your 20’s great! Like Vicki, Tamra women near their 55’s it is just really sad. They are like that strippers in that strip club in Atlanta that are beyond their prime.

        Speaking of age does Bravo have a cut off age? Is Vicki close to it? I believe she is the oldest of all the brands.

    • djprincessc says:

      Lulu as someone in her late 20’s I think it really doesn’t matter on age so much (although a woman in her late 50’s wearing one is kinda eh) but I think it matters more the way they look and especially the way they carry themselves. I have seen some older women wearing mini skirts and they had amazing bodies and carried themselves so well (non-desperate) that they looked fine. But Tamara screams attention, I’m trying too hard, look at me. Just what I think.

  13. Exit4 says:

    Regardless of anything, Brandi exaggerated the whole thing for her own gain. And to he nasty. It went from being sued and costing 20 grand, to getting a letter, to her friend getting a letter with her name in it and it costing 10 grand. So which is it? The last one-obviously-so why all the other tales inbetween? Because Brandi wanted the viewers to believe otherwise. End of story!

    As for the “secret”, I guarantee lots of the women on these shows have “stuff” that has remained off the screen and off the radar. Just because WE don’t know it, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

    Perfect example is jaculine. The entire cast and crew of her show knew nick had issues. Everyone involved chose not to film in or talk about it on film. It didn’t even leak into the tabloids. It came out when Jac was ready. Adrienne’s surrogacy involved her family and her children, just like jacs situation did. Adrienne’s situation also involved the surrogate herself, who in these days of “investigations” could have had her anonymity out at risk. It can happen-it happened to Sara Jessica Parker’s surrogate. She was betrayed in the tabloids by the very people who were supposed to protect her. Jaculine and Adrienne both have the right, as human beings to have some privacy in life. TV show or not.

    However, the difference with jaculine is that her cast (no matter how ugly things got) and her crew (regardless of ratings or drama) allowed her to have some dignity in her personal life. They gave her the tespect her and her child deserved because that’s what DECENT PEOPLE DO!!!! Brandi, by opening her mouth, was only thinking of Brandi. Adrienne made her mad so she decided to screw her because that’s what makes BRANDI happy, who cares how it effects her children or other people not involved? It’s always about Brandi and what works for her. She’s immature and not a person if want to associate with!

    • melthehound says:

      I’m still wondering where this 20k number came from. I’ve never heard that amount used on the show. That doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. I’ve heard 2k when the letter/suit was first talked about at that restaurant, and the first time I heard the 10k number was the reunion. Also, I’ve never heard anyone admit that this big god awful secret was about surrogacy. I’ve seen a lot of speculation about it but I’ve never seen (again, could have happened and I just missed it) either Brandi or Adrienne say that’s what it was about. None of the others for that matter. Should Brandi learn to keep her mouth shut? Yes.

      • Exit4 says:

        I think Brandi threw out 20k herself, whether it was twitter or an article-I can’t remember which, but the more involved ones could probably answer that better. When Adrienne did her article about the surrogacy, she said that was the secret. Even if that wasn’t it (for the sake of argument) the above still applies. Whether its someone’s marriage, finances, children or what not-if you know something about an individual and you know that something is not to be discussed (and all of us have been in those situations) you don’t discuss it. And you especially don’t discuss it as a means of revenge or to prove a point, without accepting there may be consequences. In this case, lawyers, in real life, maybe people won’t speak to you again. Or trust you.

        It’s about being a decent person. They can exist, even in reality TV!

        • Exit4 says:

          I should add that for TV people, anything public record is fair game. It sucks, but public record is well, public to be talked about! It doesn’t mean you have to talk about it if you choose not to (the lauritas have been silent on their financial issues, for example), but it will be open to debate and public consumption.

        • melthehound says:

          I didn’t know Adrienne had confirmed. See how far behind I am on this? I don’t particularly care one way or the other (about that particular issue) but I do get and agree with what you’re saying. Show or not, some things just shouldn’t be said by someone else.

          • LaineyLainey says:

            But when Adrienne described her c-sections in some detail on the air…she sort of opened herself up to this…because she was accusing B of being a liar; so B said, look how much ADE LIES…’everybody knows about _____ and yet, she constantly lies about it anyway, even though everyone knows the truth’. Loosely quoted. Brandi does fight back. I don’t agree that she should have blurted that out…but Ade shouldn’t have come after someone who fights back kinda dirty especially since Brandi was one of the people who knew the “truth” about Ade. I wouldn’t have given her (Brandi) any ammunition to strike back (especially since her family privacy was at stake) and I feel that Adrienne did just that. She gave Brandi the ammunition to strike back and to hit where it hurts. It was nice how the NJ crew let Jacqueline come out with her personal family issues on her own. Even the “monster” Teresa…held her tongue. I agree that Brandi shouldn’t have gone there…but Adrienne contributed to this whole mess, too. I believe that SHE was a bit careless.

            • Contessa says:

              I agree it wasn’t right about Brandi divulging Ad’s kids being born via surrogacy….however Ad threatened her time and time again, about what kind of mother she is, let her vile chef loose on Brandi, etc…If someone was puttting out stories about me about my kids, my job/livelihood, you can bet I would go for the jugular big time. Ad cannot go through life thinking her lawyers and money will keep her bad behavior safe. Please remember the take down meeting Brandi divulged at the reunion last year, and also the fact that Ad wanted her retract things on twitter and she wouldn’t. Ad though she could manipulate Brandi simply because Brandi did not have $$$ and a powerful legal team. I hate people like that and as we can see up above one of our group has had to deal with this kind of unfortunate issue. If a lawyers (especially for someone rich) sends someone a letter and you are included in the letter, named, you better get legal advice pronto.

            • thedesigndiva2 says:

              didnt A have a c section with her first child ???? and if so , maybe she had complications which resulted in her having to have the twins via surrogacy ??? and YES Brandi does lie …hell they all lie…BUT Brandi has yet to learn that there are certain lines you dont cross… hoepfully one day she will…but I dont quite see that happening for her… I spent some time researching and using the google machine and there are some stories about Brandi out there… her fighting with women in bars etc because of her mouth… and her dalliances around BH with Cedric.. pre HWS…. LOL …..

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                Diva-you can’t really say her time with Cedric was “pre-HWs” . I think it was her ploy to get on the show-pose in pictures with him and call him you gay best friend and then act like it was a lie-but not a lie(she has said both). FYI-I’m not judging her means of getting on the show-I’m sure they all used whatever they had in their arsenal to get on.

              • LaineyLainey says:

                hi divaLou, I thought (perhaps incorrectly) that Ade had all of her children via surrogacy to maintain her figure. I could be wrong,…but that’s what I’ve been thinking all along.

            • Exit4 says:

              I’ve been in the situation, where I KNOW someone is lying about something in their life. Funny enough, one of my ex friends was famous for this stuff. Judging others when she’s no better. Putting up a front of lies to deflect from her truth. If Adrienne maloof was determined to keep surrogacy on the DL, she used her first sons c section north and applied it to all of them. Or acted as if the surrogates experience was her own either or. I see why she did that!

              Now u am normal, so lawsuits, letters etc dont apply in my life-but the one who shuts up and doesn’t retaliate always comes out the better person. Always. You shouldn’t fight petty with petty, you fight it with dignity-tour own dignity. Brandi doesn’t get that, she’s one of those people that has to prove a point. Sometimes the best point is the unsaid point, if that makes sense?

        • Twinkle Toes says:

          One aspect of this that no one seems to have mentioned is that when Brandi divulged the surrogacy information she was actually putting her friend Geneva in serious legal and financial jeopardy. I’m fairly certain that everyone in Adrienne’s employ would be required to sign a confidentiality agreement. By sharing that personal and private information with Brandi, Geneva violated the terms of that agreement, and therefore Geneva could have been subject to very serious legal damages.

          I’m no fan of Adrienne and would never speak up in her defense, nor do I buy that her children have been hurt by this being made public, but I think it was really thoughtless, inconsiderate and even selfish of Brandi to not have taken into consideration the impact this would have on her friend, Geneva. If I were in Geneva’s position I’d consider it a major betrayal and that would be the end of that friendship. Up until this fiasco, I’ve been in Brandi’s corner, although I’ve long wished that she’d clean up her act a bit, but her handling of this situation does not sit well with me.

          • nyc mama says:

            That is what makes me wonder if there was a confidentiality agreement to begin with. It is standard with many people who have staff. We dont know if there was one nor do we know what Geneva’s job/role with the family was. I would think that anyone with a large enough role in their daily activities would have to sign one. But that raises more questions.

            If Geneva did in fact breach a contract she had with Maloof/Nassif why didn’t they take the case further after Brandi refused to acquiese as they had threatened? If they had a signed contract it would have been cut and dry. But they didn’t. It appears based on the little we know that this was more about Brandi than it was Geneva and she was just used as a pawn in Adrienne’s attempt to get to Brandi without doing so directly otherwise I think we would have heard about Adrienne suing Geneva and she and Brandi wouldn’t be friends any more, but they are. That alone makes me wonder.

            I have also wondered how the confidentiality agreements have figured in to Bernie’s accusations about Paul’s alleged abuse but that’s another story and I guess it is part of Paul’s lawsuit against him.

            • Twinkle Toes says:

              My belief that there was a confidentiality agreement is based on my having had to sign one, as did everyone else in their employ, to work for a family in a city far away from Beverly Hills and in no way famous. I don’t even know who Geneva is or what the current status is in her relationship with Brandi. Do we know for a fact that Geneva wasn’t sued by Adrienne or that she and Brandi are still friends?

              • nyc mama says:

                It is a common practice whether one lives in Beverly Hills or not and doesn’t even matter if you are famous or even wealthy. My friends who have help have them sign one. In this day and age it is sometimes a necessity for a myriad of reasons. But Geneva wasn’t household help. She was an outside contractor which doesn’t always necessitate a confidentialty contract.

                Brandi has tweeted about her friendship with Geneva. I doubt if she caused her to be sued they would still be friends. I also doubt that Paul would have apologized to Brandi, publically or otherwise. I am interested in seeing Paul’s taped segment tonight and wonder if he will touch on this.

                I am sure at this point after all these months we would know if there was a lawsuit, especially with Geneva’s profession. With all the interest in this by the tabloids, bloggers, and others who have followed this story we would have heard something by now. If I know who she is and her company, etc. then I am sure others do too and would have easily found a court case if there is one. I looked and didnt find anything so it seems like there isn’t one

                • kit9 says:

                  Paul apologized to get to stick it to Adrienne, imo. not because he wasn’t po at Brandi. And, I’m not surprised is she is still friends with Geneva because it was G’s own fault for blabbing but this is Brandi so it’s hard to take her word for anything at this point.

                • Twinkle Toes says:

                  By outside contractor, do you mean an independent contractor who gets a 1099 tax form? I don’t believe being an independent contractor, as in the 1099 tax forms, necessarily negates the signing of of a confidentiality agreement, but I don’t know for certain one way or the other.

                  It sounds like in the interval between your 1:56pm post and your 3:12pm post you were able to learn more about Geneva. Do you mind me asking in what capacity she was employed by Hermandrienne?

            • kit9 says:

              I don’t know why it was more about Brandi when Brandi didn’t even claim that the letter sent to the friend threatened her. Brandi just said that it mentioned her as the alleged recipient of the blabbed info from her friend that worked for Adrienne. Brandi didn’t work for them, didn’t have a confidentiality agreement.. And, we don’t know if the case wasn’t pursued further..just because we haven’t heard about it, doesn’t mean they didn’t follow through with the case against the friend. I would like to hear from the friend.

              • nyc mama says:

                The letter stated they BOTH had to appear at the meeting or they would follow through with a lawsuit. Brandi refused. They were tiling my bathroom today so I nothing but time and was stuck in the house and I did some research and now know who Geneva is: her name, her company, how she was involved with Adrienne, etc. The only lawsuit I found that involved her was something unrelated from back in 2002 prior to her involvemet with AM.

                • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                  nyc-I know I keep saying this but we don’t know what the letter stated-Brandi said that about the meeting so many times…she also said they were suing her. I think she over dramatized the entire thing and we will never get a look at that letter.,,unless she busts it out tonight and then I will just give up!!!

      • nyc mama says:

        I never heard the $20k either, just $10k.
        I also think I read that Adrienne had all her children via surrogate but I am not positive and have no desire to research it to find out. I am not that interested or bored enough. She was in her 40’s when she married Paul so perhaps she had trouble getting pregnant? In any case, it isn’t anything to be ashamed about and I wonder why she lied.

        Brandi was trying to make a point and retaliating against some vicious things that Adrienne did to her and Lisa, not my way nor do I condon revenge, but then again I wouldn’t behave like many of these ladies or put my life out there especially if I had skeletons in my closet like Kim and Adrienne.

      • T-Rex says:

        MTH I agree I think Brandi spilled the beans that Paul and The HoofMaloof were already separated and been living separately for quite some time

    • realhousewifeva says:

      Sorry but if people want privacy, they should not go on a reality show. I’ll never understand why that whole part of it gets swept on by, as if they are forced to be on a reality show. We all know what happens when you go on a reality show, everyone and their brother is going to find out everything about your past, present and future. And if you are fighting with a castmate, they might just expose your crap too. I will never have sympathy for people who choose to walk this path, but expect to control it by their own rules. Doesn’t work that way.
      It’s so stupid to me that Adrienne claims her kids knowing how they were born is so traumatic but it’s okay for her to call their dad a wife and child beater and post pics of herself bruised allegedly by their father. Mmmkay. Not ever going to buy it.

      • Exit4 says:

        What I’ve always noticed is that it’s always the worst people (be it in the cast or outside, like twitter) that go the hardest after people. inagine all the atuff we DON’T know about these people! Adrienne has done enough to make herself look bad for sure. But just in this situation, Brandi would have been served well to keep quiet.

  14. GOOD MUNDANE AFTERNOON….. too tired to even think of a good aprils fool joke to pull today…lol

    So, I didn’t see this above (which doesn’t mean it’s not there, lol) apparently the jersey men had a brawl at posche2’s store opening. Chris, joe Gorga and Alvie manzo. They beat up Johnny the Greek. I think I read he tried to bring Mel’s ex to the party, then jtg made some comments about chris and jacs son. Tom murro told reality tea that jac took off her shoes climbed a chair and smacked him in the head!

    Albie was just involved. Again. Odd, he got aggressive at the Gorga Christmas party, in punts Cana and again now. I guess Caroline will blame Teresa again? I think the kid has anger issues.

    It’s all on film and I can’t wait to see it! I wonder of Johnny will press charges? THAT will be interesting!

  17. thedesigndiva2 says:

    well..shower taken… dressed and killing some time.. but got to wondering…
    now that we know that Brandi over embellished the ” truth ” about this alleged letter/faux lawsuit and got everyone all riled up and pitted people against each other…I wonder if this will be the “lightbulb” moment for mz liza and ken and they realize that Brandi pulled them into her game of fakery and in my eyes made them look gullible much like the cedric thing… guess Brandi was never schooled about the consequences of embellishment of lies/truth… I wonder next season who her target will be…. hmmmmm

    • nyc mama says:

      I’m guessing that Lisa and Ken know a lot more about the letter, and its content than any of us who ware just speculating. We know that Jennifer saw the letter so I think it is safe to assume that they did too and it doesn’t seem to have affected their relationship adversely. The same with Yolanda and Marisa.

      • kit9 says:

        If the letter sent to the friend actually threatened Brandi, Brandi would have produced it. Hell, at the reunion, Brandi didn’t even claim the letter to the friend threatened her, just that it mentioned her. And, Jennifer claimed to see a letter sent to Brandi from Adrienne which we know never existed.

    • LaineyLainey says:

      I believe Lisa and Ken enjoyed every minute of this whole “Adrienne is a rich bully” -themed season.

        • Cityside says:

          Well she is a bully.

          I stand by Brandi on this one. A few people on this blog (maybe lawyers?) have cleared up the way Brandi would have had to get involved, i.e., get her own lawyer, because she was named and asked to come sit down and swear never to utter another bad thing about Abitchdrenne. Come on! Adrienne is a liar, Kyle is a liar, Kim is a big fat liar.

          Brandi may not have described it the way some might like, but she is not lying about the fact they named her and threatened to sue her.

          City

          • rabblerouser2010R says:

            She was mentioned in a letter….that wasn’t even addressed to her. Brandi’s attorneys and Ad’s were never in contact with each other. Brandi’s attorney and her friend attorney went back and forth. She wasn’t named in a lawsuit…because there was no lawsuit.

            • nyc mama says:

              Geneva’s lawyer contacted Brandi’s lawyer to advise them that they were all called to a meeting and if they didn’t agree they would then proceed with a lawsuit. Brandi was expected at this meeting too. None of us knows what transpired after that including how and why Bravo got involved. That was not clarified.

              • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                This is the part that makes no sense to me. If Adrienne’s lawyer wanted a meeting with Brandi-why would the lawyer contact Geneva? Why wouldn’t the Maloof lawyer just contact Brandi’s lawyer directly I don’t think it’s b/c the bravo contract says you can’t sue each other b/c we have no idea if that is true.

                • Exit4 says:

                  Thank you! If a lawyer wants you they will come to you directly. not ill send a letter here and call another guy… Lawyers are usually fact people, not whisper down the lane types. Unless their legal representation is part of a bravo series call the real lawyers of the housewives.

                  • nyc mama says:

                    There are many tactics that lawyers take and it isn’t always a straight line.. There is not one road. I was given many different scenarios last night by some lawyers who were explaining different things and the ways are varied depending on the circumstances. That is why one needs to hire good attorneys and not all are created equal.

                • nyc mama says:

                  That is the $50k question but I do think it has to do with their contracts and it was a way to get around that. What we do know is that Brandi was called to this meeting along with Geneva as she stated several times over the season and the letter stated that if they didn’t then they would proceed with the lawsuit. That is a threat and Brandi was implicated.

                  This seems to be all because Adrienne and Paul asked Brandi to go on twitter to retract statements she and Brandi refused to do so. This was before “surrogate”.

                  • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

                    But this meeting never happened right? This is why I don’t believe any of this. Brandi never signed anything and we all know she never shut up so where is the lawsuit?
                    I’m as over this season as one can be-they all got what they wanted and here we are scratching our heads….bravo needs to go scratch!!!!

                    • nyc mama says:

                      Amen! I think that they tried to scare Brandi but she called their bluff and since they really had nothing to sue her for they backed down.
                      In the end Bravo won since we are all still talking about it. Who’s the fool(s)? Not Bravo that’s for sure.

                  • windycitywondering2 says:

                    Oh now maybe if Bravo frowns on castmates suing other castmates, then a good lawyer would figure out how to accomplish that anyway – like sending that letter to Geneva. Adrienne can say she isn’t suing or there was no letter sent to Brandi, when in fact, Brandi was named in one sent to Geneva and she supposed had to attend a meeting where she would sign a document stating she wouldn’t talk about the Maloof’s family. Bravo had to edit this storyline heavily. Adrienne is a poor loser and even Paul didn’t know the extent of her manipulations.

      • nyc mama says:

        I would think that they would prefer to not have to deal with this kind of nonsense but they are on a reality show so who knows?. I know that anyone who found Adrienne obnoxious and full of herself would take some pleasure in watching her self-destruct especially watching her continually try to manipulate things and then watching it all go awry and back-fire on her. It’s human nature.

        Kind of like hearing Adrienne badmouth Lisa’s restaurants yet they were voted 2 of the top 10 restaurants in LA in a poll last week. I am sure they took pleasure in yet again proving Adrienne wrong.

      • Contessa says:

        My Darling Diva,

        I usually agree with you on a lot of things, but in the case of the letter I don’t for various reasons – read posts above. One of our posters had this happen to them, and also I believe Ad’s lawyers went around this by naming Brandi in a letter to someone else, so Ad could say she was not specifically gunning for Brandi. A great way to get around you can’t sue a cast member and not directly going for Brandi. It is still the same thing – she is getting threatened if she doesn’t do this, than this will happen. Once you are named in a letter, the postion of the sender is very clear to me.

        I think Lisa/Ken and Yolanda are very savvy people when it comes to business, and I also believe all three of them saw the letter. They would not champion Brandi if it was simply
        a big nothing. I love Brandi and it’s her loyalty that endears her to me. She stuck up for Lisa at last years reunion, not knowing if this would backfire on her getting a contract for the show. I also understand her humiliation regarding her divorce – my ex went for the money and played with my emotions (and his HO – now wife). If someone was using my kids for photo-op and doing pda’s at my kids games – I would be hurt and livid. I do believe Brandi has now figured out that this divorce, in a way, was a stepping stone to the future and she got a lot of publicity (in the beginning when douchebag hooked up with his ho in the beginning), got moving about having a career and figuring out what she had to do to support her kids (reread her book last night), got a spot on BHHW and a book on top of it. She is coming into her own and I love stories of women rising out of their ashes to success and money of her own. I hope in the future she tones it down a bit with the language and thinking out loud, and hopefully this will be part of the maturity process we all go through.

        I am very happy about you taking charge of the hotel – sounds like the owners should kiss your feet big time. I used to be in high-rise property management and you would have been a dream as a manager. Hope Mr. Ford’s knee is better. Mine simply sucks and is getting more painful each day. I go back to the doctor tomorrow, but my mobility is way off and I am 10 times worse than before surgery.

        Love, XXOO

        • Contessa…I am so sorry to hear about your knee! 😦 That is terrible that it is worse rather than better. I hope your dr. can pinpoint the problem tomorrow and find a resolution. Pain and immobility is no quality of life! Sending healing energy and warm thoughts to you!

        • Catseye says:

          Ooooh Contessa, sorry to hear about your knee surgery. I had the same experience with knee surgery for a torn meniscus. I couldn’t even sleep from the constant pain. I DID have very good luck with hyaluronic acid injections by my doctor afterward. It’s been probably 3yrs since and I am fine. Maybe it’ll work for you?

      • kit9 says:

        I’m not sure they did since they supported Brandi fully and now know it wasn’t true. Ken was saying there was a full on ‘lawsuit’ against Brandi as late as the White Party and he might feel angry and used for being misled and saying something that was untrue. But, maybe they don’t care and were happy to slam Adrienne even if it wasn’t true. lol. Would be a great question for Lisa.

    • realhousewifeva says:

      Yah I’m sure they wish they sided with Adrienne, the one who sends her Chef to put out awful stories about the ladies, or who accuses her ex of beating her and their children. I’m sure Lisa is crying in her cornflakes that she’s not BFF with Adrienne the Martyr. LMAO!

        • Contessa says:

          Thanks all for the good wishes on the knee issue. I cannot believe this has happened. By afternoon I am zapped of all energy, it takes an effort to get out of bed to get to the pain pills and morning coffee. Than I wait for the pain pills to kick in so I can shower and get dressed, and work. Everything takes so many extra steps for me with a can and walker. Just getting the laundry to my bedroom is a huge undertaking (i move the laundry basket across the tile floor slowly – LOL). This is making me totally nuts. By the way I have had the hyaloric acid injection in my other knee, and we will see what the doctor says tomorrow and maybe they can inject this knee as well. However I am wondering why I am so much worse than I was before surgery. YUCK BIG TIME! XXOO

      I don’t know, as dimwitted as Alexis is, I never thought she seemed mean spirted or evil. Tamra just seems seriously evil. But overall, I don’t have a fave at all, and I have no desire to watch, so that will free up my Monday nights! woo hoo (tm Vicki) lol

      • Exit4 says:

        I despise Vicki. I’m entertained by tamra, gross as she is. Sometimes she’s funny. Alexis is like Dorothy in the land if Oz. a silicone, botoxed, bleached Oz. and then there’s Gretchen and slade. Yuck. I really believe this is a giant acting performance for heather. I’ll catch it in repeats!

        • rabblerouser2010R says:

          That is why I can’t watch…I pretty much cant stand a single person in the entire HW cast other than liking Vickie’s daughter. The rest either annoy or disgust me.

          • BB says:

            I don’t even like Briana anymore. As bad as her mom is, she threw her under the bus big time last season. I would never do that to my mother. Ever.

            • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

              I agree BB-I used to like her but that was just so mean-even for Vicky!!

            • LaineyLainey says:

              thank you, bb. i was really disappointed with Briana’s behavior. Where is family loyalty, people????!!! Now, when Vicky looked at her and said “bring it” on camera…she was all talking tough and Brianna ” brought it”..well, Vicky was asking for it. But when Brianna sided with Tamara against her own mother …last straw. I can’t see turning on your own mom or SISTER (uh oh, here it comes….)…or brother, or father,…you get the picture….it’s hard for me to see past that.

            • pat says:

              BB, I agree with you re Briana last season. I always liked her beyond that, but it was really shitty the way she handled things last season. Aside from calling out Brookes Ayers. That I liked.

      • pat says:

        VA, I felt bad for Alexis last season, especially with how her former bestie Gretchen was so quick to dump her, after Tamra and Gretchen decided to be bobbsey twins. But she strikes me as so superficial and fake about the lifestyle stuff. It rang true, when Heather and other cast members were trying to call her out about how she treats crew members, waitstaff, etc. They couldn’t say much without breaking the 4th wall. But at the reunion they said more about it. That she’s rude to people she believes are not her social equal. She’s definitely not mean on the level of other ladies on the show, tho.

        • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

          I thought they were mean to Alexis and I don’t know if I believe what they say about her but she is so phony it’s hard to stick up for her. Gretchen and Tamra as BFFs are so annoying!!!

    • kit9 says:

      So, agree. Tamra may have surpassed you-know-who in the closest to pure e-vil department. Ugh, I saw a promo for the show and hearing Tamra’s screeching voice squeal something idiotic about she and Eddie getting married made me want to throw up. And, really, more nonsense about the super uber lame ‘storyline’ of Gretch and Slade getting pregnant? How old is that getting? So glad someone is willing to bite the bullet and watch this mess for me. Unless I hear something super satisfying..oh, like Tamra being humiliated, I’m going to skip this mess…

    The girl Jax used has a part on The Client List!

  21. Exit4 says:

    I haven’t watched soaps in years, but have been watching GH the last few weeks-it’s the 50th anniversary. I was such a GH gal growing up in the 80s and early 90s! I live that all the classics are back! I just listened to Tracy quarter marine argue about ELQ and pickle Lila! Luke and Laura are facing off with Helena Casadine as we speak! Loving that I remember these storylines!

    Isn’t it ironic that reality shows killed the soaps genre? Esp Housewives? It’s not the only factor obviously, but a big one. Even nighttime. What’s the last classic dynasty like show we’ve seen?

    Sometimes I think I’d rather watch like and Laura defeat the cassadines and their weather machine then hear another word about letter gate, strippergate, bowgate and whatever gate comes next.

    • LizzieLou says:

      I agree. I used to race home from school every day to catch up on Luke and Laura. I love them!

    • “Luke and Laura defeat the Cassadines and their weather machine”…oh geez…I remember this! Classic! Too funny. THAT was some good tv….the HW’s shows couldn’t touch that iconic program!

    • lillybee says:

      TV Guide did an interview with Tony Geary and others from GH who said that Brian Fons, President of Daytime, wanted to go all reality. Fons got fired.

    • princesspindy says:

      @ things about Gh that i remember, How my bff was soooo pissed at the Watergate hearings for pre-empting her GH!!! And how delighted her brother was cuz he was a political nerd and would rub it in her face AND how Jackie Z died on Friday on One Life To Live and showed up on Monday on GH, lol!! OH, oh, oh, and I met Rick Springfield at a seminar and he and I were partners in an exercise…..unfortunately I was with my boyfriend Jessie, OMG, he was sooo CUTE!!!! This was maybe 1979, before I met my husband….

      • Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

        What a coincidence that Rick Springfield went on to write a song about “Jesse’s Girl”…or is it???

  22. T-Rex says:

    Isn’t Juicy Joe supposed to be in Court today for the start of the Jury Trial?? Trying to find any updates only noted that it was scheduled for today

    • Exit4 says:

      Was it today? Try north jersey.com-they usually have stuff.

    • Exit4 says:

      Oops hit to quick-I thought today or whenever was the last meeting to hash out a deal. If there’s no acceptable deal then it goes to trial. The resolution is still a ways away on that.

      • T-Rex says:

        From what I read their last court appearance was the resolution, since none was made the judge issued a jury trial, today’s court date was to start the pre-trial motions for a live jury.

        • Exit4 says:

          It’s been back and forth so many times I can remember what’s happening! It will be up soon enough I’m sure!

  23. shamrockblonde says:

    hello all – hope you all had a joyous Chocolately jelly bean Easter!! Finally got some time to myself, so I will tell you about the fish – I guess I did inot get back to my older daughter quickly enough regarding Easter dinner and whether on not we were having fish, so she texted her Dad, Mr. Shamorck and asked him if we were having fish for Easter Dinner – Mr. Smarty Pants texted her back saying “yes – we are having sushi” – that prompted a text from her to me saying “Mom, Dad told me we are having sushi for Easter Dinner – really? – Hope we are having something besides that though” – well I texted Mr. Shamrock asking him to stop telling fibs to the kids and again asked him why he was in my closet, to which he replied ” not fibbing – guessing – there are live fish in your closet – and as to what I was doing in your closet – none of your beeswax Missy” – I finally got home – still clueless and trying really had to not loose focus on the games and scheduling – I finally got home around 9:30 at night – and Mr. Shamrock made me stand in front of the closet with my eyes closed – I heard him open my closet and then he let me open my eyes – and there were no fish!!!! – I told him I wanted to see the fish, but he said that Shamrock #2 – the one who put them there in the first place – had already come by and picked them up – turns out they were beta fish that she got as Easter gifts for her two babies – 7 and 3 – she put them in my closet because she did not want the twins to accidently happen upon them and think they were for them and she knew that the girls do not go in my room but to be sure, she put them on the floor of my closet behind my boots – Mr. Shamrock got quite the surprise when he opened the closet and saw them,but – well living with me he has seen some pretty strange things – so he left them there – as to what caused him to be in my closet? he put up one of those shoe holder things on the side of my closet and actually placed my shoes in it along with my flip flops – which I constantly lose in my closet – he wanted it to be a surprise! – at about 10 that night, daughter #2 – the fish daughter – called laughing hysterically saying that daughter #1 called her panicking that we were having sushi for Easter dinner – it took her a while to figure it out,but she finally explained about the fish in my closet not being dinner – just an Easter surprise – I’m banning all three of them from texting me at work unless the house is on fire…………

    • Orson says:

      Betas? I was imagining full grown groupers or something like that. But thanks for solving that mystery for us.

    • T-Rex says:

      OMG thanks for the update, had to be away from the computer all weekend, getting fresh air out in the woods, and thought I might have missed the surprise of the story. That was just hysterical. 🙂

    • nyc mama says:

      LOL. Congrats on the shoe rack or should I say congrats on the new rack? 😉
      Nice surprise.
      My thanks to the Shamrock troupe for entertaining us so well! Who’s on first…. Next stop Broadway.

    • designernailsdiana says:

      LOL That is hilarious. Mr Shamrock has quite the imagination.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I was thinking about your fish story…and how it turned out…so funny.

    • Powell says:

      That’s funny shamrock. You had us on pins & needles. Surprise Easter gifts and surprise shoe racks sure caused a lot of curfluffle. LOL. You all got to have a good family laugh. That’s great. I hope the kids loved their fish.

    • Boobah says:

      Thanks for the update Shamrock! I have been wondering right along with everyone else. This was one of the best stories. You had me LMAO!

    • LaineyLainey says:

      Hey Shamrock!! What DID you have for dinner? by the way, how nice of mr. Shamrock to get you that shoe thingie!

  24. Exit4 says:

    In other juicy news, there’s a Facebook post about him not appearing on season 5. I think it’s a joke because joe doesn’t so social media, the season is already filmed and the while thing doesn’t sound like joe anyway. But maybe he won’t appear. Who knows? I want to see that fight though!

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Joe as in Juicy?
      I can see him not appearing. he is very much like Peter (Cynthia’s husband) and just doesn’t give a flick which makes him a liability for Bravo .He also is a liability to Teresa and she often has found herself trying to deal with some of the things he has said or done. Andy doesn’t like him….so he knows he isn’t going to get the good edit..not to mention he is probably pissed they caught him on camera in a comprising position.

  25. kidsrfunny says:

    RHOV – So sad to see Ronnie drunk on her birthday. A couple of weeks ago, someone tweeted her and congratulated her on one year sober. Ronnie’s reply was something like, not sober, just not drinking wine, that is my weakness.

    Well, she proved on her birthday she can’t drink vodka either. I’m not sure when it was filmed and I guess the tweet was after filming. Maybe she is trying again to get sober and hopefully this time it will be sober from everything.

    Now her twitter account has been suspended. I don’t tweet so I have no idea what that means. Even though I don’t care for her, I do wish she could get it together.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      Weird about her twitter account being suspended……

    • designernailsdiana says:

      kidsfunny
      I agree she does need to get sober, but it’s hard to break an addiction. I’m addicted to food and so far I’m losing that battle. I’m too old and in rough shape to apply for Biggest Loser, plus I have more than a few skeletons in my closet(s) so I couldn’t be on tv.
      I think your twitter account gets suspended if you’ve sent too may tweets. Last week someone got suspended for tweeting during the Jodi Arias trial. Had to use another account to finish tweeting the trial events that day. Ha ha so sad that there’s a limit.

    • Powell says:

      Kidsrfunny she said she gave up wine but on occasion drinks champagne. Champagne is wine. Isee why she did have a good vintage of her wine last season.

  26. Amalfi says:

    I hear Tamra screeching like a banshee in the reruns I just flipped through …. what a hag.

    I guess this is one more hour per week of my life I can reclaim from Bravo each week. That is a good thing.

  27. I Need A Life! says:

    I watched Mob Wives this weekend. Honestly had to hide under the blanket when Love Maj. came out swinging at some poor woman who tried to stand up for Ramona. This “Love,” has mental issues. She’s not charming, “real,” honest. She’s sick. Preview of next week’s show has me asking legal questions. There’s a scene that the entire season has been leading up to. “Love” beats up Carla. Literally grabs her hair like a lion who has been in a cage. Now, the producers of the show KNOW this is going to happen. They anticipated it all year long. Karen actually walks Carla to this “Love” as though she’s leading a lamb to slaughter.

    1. In a reality show, does Carla have the right to file battery charges against Love? She was defending herself by trying to strike back, but I don’t think she stood a chance.

    2. Does Carla have the right to sue the production company who anticipated this brawl? Security guards were standing by.

    I was upset by this whole scene with Love turning on a bystander, and I was freaked by the violence we’re about to witness. 3. At what point does this stop?
    Thanks.

    • BB says:

      I don’t know the answer to your first two questions. As to the 3rd, it stops when people refuse to watch it.

    • rabblerouser2010R says:

      I don’t understand why production would bring someone into the fray…who literally likes to go around and STAB people.

  28. BB says:

    I’m not a fan of Piers Morgan, but I read he was mostly responsible for Omarosa being fired on Celebrity Apprentice last night. Good for him.

    • Powell says:

      Haha. Piers is ok. I’m glad she got the ax. They can’t stand each other. Omarosa is so arrogant. Piers has money & connections. Like NeNe said “Don’t burn your bridges”. Omarosa is a fool. Piers could have helped her in her career, whatever that may be.

      • I Need A Life! says:

        She cheated by adding $2,000 of her own money towards the challenge and they never brought it up in the boardroom. Sorry to see her go, though. I liked watching her. I would rather have had Baldwin leave the show.

        • melthehound says:

          I’m not sorry to see her go. What a witch. Dennis had her number and called her out on every single dirty trick. Piers, who I cannot stand, had it right. She’s not a celebrity. Little John raised over 80k, Dennis made the art that brought in the money, and Omerossa sat there on her ass scheming to make the others look bad. Hated her the first time I laid eyes on her, on Surreal Life.

  29. Jill...no not THAT Jill says:

    I still can not believe that Heather had a name change party….so stupid….and that dumb cake/bow crap was beyond redic!!!!

    • BB says:

      That expression on her face when she talks about her bow being eaten is priceless. She looks and sounds like such a Valley Girl. Heather is the perfect name for her (no offense to any Heathers here).

    • Powell says:

      Rich people saying “see what dumb stuff we do with our money”. 🙂 I could have done quite a few things around my house & for myself w/what she spent.

  30. Powell says:

    I’m watching HLN JodiArias trial. Breakfast is Peanut butter on a Kaiser roll, an Apple & a cookie. Lunch turkey sandwich on a Kaiser roll Fruit & a cookie. They have commissary where they can buy snacks. Damn. Just this pitiful amount of food should keep people from commiting a crime.

  31. Powell says:

    Asshat defense for Jodi Arias filed a motion for a mistrial. Last Thursday HLN/In session correspondent Jean Kasaras had to take the stand because on Wed one of her fellow HLN co-workers asked her did she see the prosecutor Martinez taking pictures & signing autographs outside the courthouse. Jean told them no but she would be concerned if a juror witnessed it because there is one particular juror she has seen outside. She didn’t see the juror see Martinez signing autographs/taking pics, she was just concerned. Jean explained what she was asked by her co-worker & what her concerns were. The judge spoke to each juror individually Thursday. We don’t know what the outcome of that is yet since there was no court Friday & Monday.

    I knew the defense was going to do this. They are losing & are trying to find anything for a mistrial. I guess we shall see how this plays out tomorrow.

    • trudie says:

      There is no way that judge is going to allow a mistrial. Too much money has been spent on this trial already, and they have enough alternate jurors to remove the one that is at issue and proceed with the trial. I think the defense is trying anything and everything to save their case, but this isn’t going to work.

    • kit9 says:

      They filed another motion for mistrial today about juror 5 who they allege spoke in front of other jurors about the case and showed prejudice. They want a mistrial or the juror dismissed. Great, I bet all morning will be wasted sorting this mess out instead of getting on with the trial.

  32. Cruickal says:

    So I thought I missed it on last nights married to medicine so I was waiting for this recap to see if it was caught by BB. Apparently in Quad and Mariah’s blog they mention how Toya gave a backhanded compliment to Mariah’s husband about their daughters adoption that they didn’t let her know about by the time the scenes were filmed. And that they were extremely mad about it. I would be too however I didn’t catch that when watching it last night. Did anyone else?

    I also think its interesting that Mariah is an EP of the show so was surprised anything that she didn’t want to come out would come out, I thought EP’s had content rights. Maybe Bravo is going to be a little more truthful in editing with this show, however that isn’t likely.

    I will define lay be watching RHOC, I hope the first scene tonight is a tamra or Gretchen TH saying “April fools! We were never friends” lol probably not happening though 🙂

    I’m glad the season of BH is almost over, this season was so frustrating to have it be about a fight we don’t know the exact content of, and even more frustrating that after all that we know the truth even less now that Brandi “the truth teller” has been shown as less than honest in her accounts. I’ve decided I don’t have a favorite for this show anymore, since I can’t trust most of what is shown anyway and just go with the entertainment value of it. I feel if I put too much energy in picking a favorite I’m just going to hate that person the next year anyway because bravo loves to mess with us. I’m calling it, next years villain edit will be given to Yolanda and Lisa, if they both return, Yolanda for her comment about sexual orientation being a “choice” (a million bucks says Andy doesn’t let that go) and Lisa because she is the fan favorite this year. Brandi will get it the season after that….

    Celeb apprentice was nice last night, I think that show only being one hour is much much better and am so glad the villain is gone!

    • BB says:

      Yes, I caught what Toya said about Aydin adopting Mariah’s daughter, but didn’t realize it was a secret. I’m not into these women enough to care honestly.

      • Cruickal says:

        Lol ah ok! I just didn’t see where it happened so I was confused what it was all about. thanks for the info! 🙂

  33. Exit4 says:

    T. rex- joe rejected the states deal today-the next hearing to schedule a trial is may 28. I am sure between now and then the state and his lawyer will still be trying to work out a plea to avoid a trial. Then after that, they’ll set a trial date….this thing will go til the end of the year at least!

  34. RabbleRouser says:

    I don’t know what is going on with my account….DH re installed windows because I was getting all kinds of nasty pop ups and ad ware….and when I say nasty…I mean nasty like porn and NASTY porn at that…

    He also installed chrome instead of firefox…..

    Now it says my comments are awaiting moderation.

  35. trudie says:

    This is just bizarre. I was just on the Bravo website reading Kenya’s blog. While I was reading, I noticed that there were comments on the blog, and there were pop ups saying “5 new comments”, “7 new comments,” etc. By the time I got to the last page of her blog, there were 0 comments. WTF?

  36. rabblerouser2010R says:

    test?

  37. djprincessc says:

    I’m watching OC reruns and that dress that Tamara is wearing to Heathers party is from Bebe, I tried it on. She looks trashy wearing it.

    • princesspindy says:

      I am watching too! So many lies! Heather saying she doesn’t want drama, Vicki with her “look what Brooks just bought me” etc, etc, etc!! My favorite is Tamra’s son not getting involved, the look that crossed her face was “you sob”, lol! Not helping mom out on that one.

      • djprincessc says:

        Straight men usually stay as far away from the drama as possible!! lol. The real househusbands are just a rare breed that THRIVE on their wives drama. Although I have to say it was soooo funny and kinda funny on Beverly Hills finale how Lisa’s party planner Kevin( I think is his name) stayed FAR FAR AWAY from all the fighting!! The husbands wanted him to get the scoop and he was having no part in it!! lol.

        • princesspindy says:

          So true, I can’t even imagine how my husband would react if we were ever in a situation like this…. AND Tamara makes every look trashy.

          • djprincessc says:

            Whats funny is that when Tamara first started the show, I liked her, didn’t LOVE her the way I do some of the other housewives but I did like her and when Alexis came on, I couldn’t stand her!! But the way they all ganged up on Alexis with Tamara as the ring leader I started hating her and liking Alexis! So at the time when Tamara threw wine in Jeana’s face I thought Jeana deserved it! Funny how when she sat down with Jeana and Kara I completely changed and thought her apology wasn’t good enough!

            P.S. Kara is beautiful but looked ridiculous in that gown. The gown wore her, she didn’t wear the gown.

  38. princesspindy says:

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